ke long and strongly against the habit of public men receiving gifts. He related an anecdote of the Russian prince who paid into his master's treasury the value of the present he had received; and remarked that he himself had adopted the same rule. Webster, said he, was injured in consequence of receiving gifts from his constituents. On the 21st of June, he found strength sufficient to write an encouraging letter to the Republican committee at Boston in respect to the nomination of J. C. Fremont and W. L. Dayton at the Republican National Convention held at Philadelphia on the 17th of the same month. In this contest, said he, there is every motive to union, and also every motive to exertion. Now or never! now and forever! --such was the ancient war-cry, which, embroidered on the Irish flag, streamed from the Castle of Dublin, and resounded through the whole island, arousing a generous people to a new struggle for ancient rights; and this war-cry may be fitly inscribed on ou

also, one may see the connection between higher forms of literature and books of travel. Freneau translates the Travels of the Abbe Robin (Philadelphia, 1783), and writes Stanzas on the emigration to America and Peopling the Western country (poems, 1786). Timothy Dwight's Most fruitful thy soil, most inviting thy clime, in Columbia, echoes the sentiment of his Travels. Longfellow derives the myth of Hiawatha from Schoolcraft, and is said to have used Sealsfield's Life in the New world, and Fremont's Expedition to the Rocky Mountains, in Evangeline. In Bryant, the allusion to the continuous woods Where rolls the Oregon has been traced to Carver. Thanatopsis, the lines To a waterfowl, and The Prairies alike reveal the spirit of inland discovery. The relation of English poets to American observers is most significant of all. Coleridge praises Cartwright, Heame, and Bartram; the impression which Bartram had left on his mind, says his grandson, was deep and lasting. Lamb is enamo

ment in the matter. Though Agassiz was no mathematician, and Peirce no naturalist, they soon found that their intellectual aims were the same, and they became very close friends. You are familiar, no doubt, with the works of Captain Wilkes and the report of his journey around the world. His charts are much praised. The charts of the coasts and harbors of the United States, made under the direction of Dr. Bache and published at government expense, are admirable. The reports of Captain Fremont concerning his travels are also most interesting and instructive; to botanists especially so, on account of the scientific notes accompanying them. I will not speak at length of my own work, —my letter is already too long. During the winter I have been chiefly occupied in making collections of fishes and birds, and also of the various woods.

Later from Central America and the Pacific. --The steamship North Star, Captain Jones, arrived at New York on Saturday, from Aspinwall, with Isthmus dates to the 5th instant, and passengers and mails from California. Among the passengers were Mrs. J. C. Fremont and family. The specie brought amounts to $1,244,000. The advices from California have been anticipated by the Overland Express: There is no news from the South Pacific or Central America, and but little from New Grananda, where it appears Mosquera was still holding his ground against the Government. Three more battles had been fought, but with no decisive result, and a number of superior officers of both parties had died of their wounds or been killed in action. It was suspected that Mosquera was tampering successfully with the Government forces, and had sworn disagreement among the leaders. Another batch of United States naval officers, who were attached to the Pacific squadron, had resigned. The U. S. ship Wy
