the Slave Power. Of all Judges, since Jeffrey disgraced the bench, he has probably been the most subservient to the will of tyranny. He neither falters nor revolts at its utmost demands. One specimen of his legal erudition will suffice. Judge Wakefield was arrested by Titus and his men and brought before Lecompte. He demanded that the writ of arrest should be read to him. Lecompte examined the books, and inquired of his clerk, but could find neither record of complaint nor note of the issue of any writ. He informed Mr. Wakefield of this fact, and then advised him to take out a writ of habeas corpus! A brief examination of Judge Lecompte's record in Kansas will explain why he has retained his place of honor so long and undisturbed, notwithstanding the incessant and angry remonstrances of the people of the Territory. Here is a brief and incomplete chronological note of it: Judge Lecompte, Chief-Justice, April 30, 1855, addresses and takes prominent part in a border ruff
tle execution. The party under Captain Ives now returned to the main body, where the firing had been going on for three or four hours, driving the enemy back so effectually that three companies of the Thirteenth Indiana crossed the Blackwater in the pontoon-boats. Colonel Dodge also crossed over in the face of a large force of the enemy, who had doubtless been attracted by the firing, and had arrived to reinforce their comrades, having, as was supposed, reached the place in the cars from Wakefield. As the expedition was partially a diversion in flavor of other and more important military movements by our forces, and as General Ferry had received orders to be particularly cautious not to bring on an engagement, our men were recalled from the opposite side, and returned with a captain and twelve men whom they had captured. The whole now made preparations to retrace their steps, and at half-past 10 o'clock this morning the last of the column passed through Suffolk on their way to t

nt and crumbling. Tiflis affords as much amusement and comfort as any second-rate town or city in Europe. From his Journal are here given one or two passages, to illustrate how Stanley observed and judged the individuals of his own race and civilisation. February 5th, 1870. Reached the Dardanelles at noon. One of my fellow-voyagers is the Rev. Dr. Harman, of Maryland, an elderly and large man, who is a marvel of theological erudition, a mixture of Jonathan Edwards and the Vicar of Wakefield. Most of the morning we had passed classic ground, and, as he is a Greek scholar of some repute, his delight was so infectious that we soon became warm friends. He also has been to Jerusalem, Damascus, and Ephesus, and many other places of biblical and classical interest; and, in a short time, with a face shining with enthusiasm, he communicated to me many of his impressions and thoughts upon what he had seen, as my sympathy was so evident. St. Paul is his favourite; the Seven Churches

would appear to be a failing with sculptors to speak unfavorably of the work of other sculptors, and this, of course, was perhaps more like Auerbach than any other writer of the nineteenth century, but still more like Goldsmith. The Vicar of Wakefield and the House of the seven Gables are the two perfect romances in the English tongue; and the Deserted Village, though written in poetry, has very much the quality of Hawthorne's shorter sketches.

in the second story, and there our young men met from time to time. They were very poorly supplied with books or facilities for doing their work. I had hardly become established in my headquarters and in my home before I was elected to the presidency of the association. This came probably because I had been for so many years president of the Y. M. C. A. in Washington. It was not long before I found myself associated with several active workers such as Dr. Lindsley, William Wadhams, Mr. Wakefield, James Steele, and others. At that time Captain M. C. Wilkinson of my staff was very active and earnest in Christian effort. Soon we rented a large set of rooms on the lower side of Front Street, where there had been a saloon and extensive gambling arrangements. Our meetings kept increasing, and large numbers of those who had gone astray were brought back to the Master's service. A single instance may show how we worked in those days. E. P. Hammond, the evangelist, was holding

e to do as I can. I was not so confident in the fulfilment of my expectations as to feel that disappointment very seriously. To save money, I have concluded to leave college for the present term, and with my books I am located here among my relatives and the mountains. Though I should much prefer returning to Cambridge, my present situation is not without its advantages, besides the cheapness of living, and I do not think I shall have any difficulty in being contented. I regret that Wakefield is to leave us, as he is almost the only man I have found here by whom I could expect to be helped through difficulties in Thucydides, which I am going at as soon as I receive the rest of my books. At present I am at work on Xenophon's Memorabilia. ... He is withal one of the pleasantest fellows I have met with in a long time. I heard from John Brown [of the Coffee Club] some two months since. He is good-natured as ever, happy in his wife and baby, and overflowing with love for all m
