3. after the fight at Manassas. by Sarah Helen Whitman. By the great bells swinging slow The solemn dirges of our woe, By the heavy flags that fall Trailing from the bastioned wall, Miserere, Domine! By our country's common blame, By our silent years of shame, By our curbed and bated breath Under dynasties of Death, Miserere, Domine! By the sin we dared disown, Till its “dragon teeth” were sown, By the cause, yet unavowed, By the fire behind the cloud, Miserere, Domine.! By our Northern host betrayed, At Manassas' bloody raid, By our losses unatoned-- Our dead heroes, heart-enthroned, Miserere, Domine! For Rhode Island's gallant stand-- Her “unconquerable band ;” -- For the dear, familiar names, Now linked to old, historic fames, Te laudamus, Domine! For our boys that knew not fear, For their “gallant Brigadier,” For their leader, brave and young, For their praise on every tongue! Te laudamus, Domine! By the hope that suffers long, And grows through holy sorrow strong,

Chapter 19: personal traits. That woman of genius, Mrs. Sarah Helen Whitman of Providence,--best known to the world as having been the betrothed of Edgar Poe, -wrote once, in the Providence journal, a description of a scene where the brilliant and audacious John Neal gave a parlor lecture on Phrenology, then at its high-tide of prominence; and illustrated it by Margaret Fuller's head. The occasion is thus described:-- Among the topics of the evening, phrenology was introduced, and Mr. Neal expressed a wish to give what might be termed a topical illustration of his favorite theory. Miss Fuller slowly uncoiled the.heavy folds of her light brown hair and submitted her haughty head to his sentient fingers. The masterly analysis which he made of her character, its complexities and contradictions, its heights and its depths, its nobilities and its frailties, was strangely lucid and impressive, and helped one who knew her well to a more tender and sympathetic appreciation of her

the haunts of Burns, in which he expresses himself as filled with pity for the poet's life: he drank with blackguards, he was miserable; we can see horribly clear in the works of such a man his life, as if we were God's spies. Yet Burns's sins and miseries left his heart unspoiled, and this cannot be said of Poe. After all, the austere virtues — the virtues of Emerson, Hawthorne, Whittier — are the best soil for genius. I like best to think of Poe as associated with his betrothed, Sarah Helen Whitman, whom I saw sometimes in her later years. That gifted woman had outlived her early friends and loves and hopes, and perhaps her literary fame, such as it was: she had certainly outlived her recognized ties with Poe, and all but his memory. There she dwelt in her little suite of rooms, bearing youth still in her heart and in her voice, and on her hair also, and in her dress. Her dimly-lighted parlor was always decked, here and there, with scarlet; and she sat, robed in white, with h
