ladelphia, was also here, but Mrs. Pollard, his other daughter, who resides in Texas, was unable to be present. When the train of the Chesapeake & Ohio road pulled into Richmond, quite a large number of people were gathered at the station to receive the body of the dead chieftain. Among those who waited on the platform were delegations from Lee and Pickett camps. They formed an escort to the body as it was taken slowly through the streets of Richmond, where he had so often visited, to St. James Protestant Episcopal church. From this time until the funeral service began, at 10: 30 o'clock, the body lay in state, and was viewed by quite a large number of people. The following gentlemen acted as guard of honor: Comrades T. B. Ellett and A. O. James, of Lee Camp, and Comrade Alexander Jennings, of Pickett Camp. Just as the services were beginning, a detachment of the Richmond Howitzers, Lieutenant Minson in command, appeared on the Capitol Square and fired a salute of thirteen g

en territory, and go he did, spurning with contempt the low bred hirelings that had tried to intimidate him, and for years—up to the time of his death—went in and out across the line, penetrating the State of Pennsylvania for miles, fearful of no one except himself. He found friends that stood by him when adversity overtook him. Our dearly loved, idolized hero—loved by his old battery to a man—passed away at Hancock, Md., February 14th, 1870, and was buried in the beautiful cemetery of St. James Episcopal church. His age was 32 years. On Memorial Day Federal soldiers who have felt the power of his sword and the thunder of his battery, strew flowers over his grave and silently shed a tear over the mound that contains the remains of as true a type of manhood as the world can produce. As in life he was always found upon the uttermost edge of his country's fortune, so in death he sleeps on the extreme limit of the State he loved so well—old Maryland. We laid him to rest in h

loving memory too, and forever preserve the record of their matchless deeds? Let the mute eloquence of many memorial shafts throughout the South make answer. The women of the South in their bereavement, sorrow and poverty did not forget gratitude, and everywhere have placed lasting mementoes of the self-oblation of all Confederate dead—grander than their prototypes the modest column at Moore's Creek, or the simple stone to Sumner at Guilford, or the humble tomb that in the churchyard of St. James at Wilmington marks the resting place of Cornelius Harnett, by as much as our strife was greater than theirs. Lament them not; no love can make immortal, The span that we call life, And never heroes entered heaven's portal Throa fields of grander strife. Governor of North Carolina. On the 7th of July, 1861, John W. Ellis, Governor of North Carolina, died at the Red Sulphur Springs in what is now West Virginia, of consumption of the lungs.

The second volume comprehends the History of St. Paul, displaying the evidence of the genuineness of his fourteen Epistles, particularly that to the Hebrews, and ascertained the times in which they were written. In the third volume, the seven Catholic epistles, and the Revelation of St. John, are considered, and histories given of St. James, St. Peter, and St. Jude. In conclusion, it is shewn, that there is no reason to believe that any of the sacred books of the New Testament have been lost. Kippis's Life of Lardner, LII.

and on the distinction between the sin unto death and the sin not unto death (1 John v. 16). This work was also well received, and a second edition of the whole appeared in 1756, with some additional dissertations. His valuable contributions to sacred literature procured for our author the friendship and esteem of many persons of the highest eminence in the Established Church as well as among the Dissenters. On the Continent also they enjoyed a high reputation; and the Exposition of St. James's Epistle had the honour of being translated into Latin by the celebrated J. D. Michaelis, who had proposed to translate the entire work, but was prevented by other engagements. These extensive critical labours on the Christian Scriptures did not prevent Dr. Benson from devoting himself diligently to the performance of his duties as a preacher and pastor. On the contrary, circumstanced as he was, we may naturally conclude that the two occupations would materially favour and facilitate

f New England; the dusty legends of the good Old Colony times, when we lived under a king. This is the right material for story. It seems as natural to make tales out of old tumble-down traditions, as canes and snuff-boxes out of old steeples, or trees planted by great men. The puritanical times begin to look romantic in the distance. Who would not like to have strolled through the city of Agamenticus, where a market was held every week, on Wednesday, and there were two annual fairs at St. James's and St. Paul's? Who would not like to have been present at the court of the Worshipful Thomas Gorges, in those palmy days of the law, when Tom Heard was fined five shillings for being drunk, and John Payne the same, for swearing one oath ? Who would not like to have seen the time, when Thomas Taylor was presented to the grand jury for abusing Captain Raynes, being in authority, by thee-ing and thou-ing him; and John Wardell likewise, for denying Cambridge College to be an ordinance of Go

erce. We shall only allude to their names in this place in connection with the incidents of which they were the occasion. The refusal of the English authorities at Gibraltar to allow the Sumter to supply herself with the coal she needed to resume her cruise at the end of 1861, had decided Captain Semmes to convert that vessel into a blockade-runner in order to find another ship for himself. This refusal gave rise to sundry fruitless remonstrances addressed by Mr. Mason to the cabinet of St. James. We have related the career of the Oreto or Florida, which was the first successor of the Sumter—her departure from England despite the notification of Mr. Adams, her seizure and release at Nassau; then the first appearance of the Alabama, her equipment in the ship-yards of Birkenhead, her armament at Terceira, and the vain protest of the United States legation against these hostile acts. Although American commerce suffered severely by this violation of international law, the Americans c

But the transition in England from the rule of the aristocracy to a greater degree of popular power, was not as yet destined to take place. There was an end of the old aristocratic rule; but it was not clear what should come in its stead. The condition of the new minister was seen to be precarious. On entering office Pitt's health was so infirm, that he took the oath at his own house, though the record bears date at St. James's. The House of Commons, which he was to lead, had been chosen under the direction of Newcastle, whom he superseded. His subordinates even ventured to be refractory; so that when Charles Towns- chap.
