n say this? Only through emotion do we know thee, Nature! We lean upon thy breast, and feel its pulses vibrate to our own. That is knowledge, for that is love. Thought will never reach it. Art. There are persons to whom a gallery is everywhere a home. In this country, the antique is known only by plaster casts, and by drawings. The Boston ATHENAeUM, —on whose sunny roof and beautiful chambers may the benediction of centuries of students rest with mine! —added to its library, in 1823, a small, but excellent museum of the antique sculpture, in plaster;—the selection being dictated, it is said, by no less an adviser than Canova. The Apollo, the Laocoon, the Venuses, Diana, the head of the Phidian Jove, Bacchus, Antinous, the Torso Hercules, the Discobolus, the Gladiator Borghese, the Apollino,—all these, and more, the sumptuous gift of Augustus Thorndike. It is much that one man should have power to confer on so many, who never saw him, a benefit so pure and enduring.

umberland university and resumed his educational work. From 1874 to 1886 he was chancellor of the University of Mississippi. When it was determined to create a National park on the field of Chickamauga, he was most appropriately appointed a member of the commission which had in charge the arrangement of that superb memorial of the valor of American soldiery, and he is yet engaged in that work with his residence near the National park. Lieutenant-General Simon Bolivar Buckner was born in 1823 in Hart county, Kentucky, entered the United States military academy in 1840, and being graduated in 1844, was assigned to a lieutenancy in the Second infantry. Later he was called back to West Point as assistant professor of ethics, and from this position was returned to the active service at his request, in order that he might engage in the Mexican war. From 1848 to 1850 he was again at West Point, as assistant inspector of infantry tactics, and in 1853 he resigned his commission in the ar
s of Virginia herself, as nearly one-third of her territory, mainly the Trans-Appalachian region, was practically a free State, and its citizens, many of whom were from the adjacent States of Pennsylvania and Ohio, constantly demanded special legislation on questions of representation in the general assembly, in consequence of the large preponderance of negroes east of that chain of mountains. Many citizens of the Great Valley and of Appalachia were much in sympathy with this feeling, and in 1823 the State came very near adopting gradual emancipation, a large number of the most influential men in every portion of the commonwealth favoring it. The chief hindering cause was the question, still unanswered, What shall be done with this great body of negroes when emancipated? About that time the abolitionists throughout the free States became very zealous in the propagation of their peculiar views upon the subject of slavery, and deluged Congress with petitions against it and flooded the
s was to abolish liberal Governments on the continent of Europe, and to maintain the divine right of sovereigns to rule according to their own discretion—in short, to roll back the tide of progress toward free institutions, and to restore the old despotisms as they had existed before the French Revolution. Accordingly France was deputed to destroy, by force of arms, the liberal Government of the Cortes in Spain, and to restore the implacable and bigoted Ferdinand VII. to absolute power. In 1823 a French army, commanded by the Duke d'angouleme, invaded Spain, and in a single campaign accomplished these objects. In the year before the date of this expedition, the Government of the United States had formally acknowledged the independence of the different southern Republics, formerly Spanish colonies; and an appropriation of one hundred thousand dollars had been made (May 4, 1822) 3 United States Statutes, 678. by Congress to defray the expense of missions to these independent na

, of Society Hill, was born at Tiller's Ferry, Kershaw county, November 21, 1831. His father was Benjamin Simons Lucas, an eminent physician, born at Charleston in 1804 and educated in England. His grandfather and great-grandfather, both named Jonathan, were natives of Cumberland, England, who came to Charleston soon after the Revolution. The senior Jonathan Lucas invented and introduced the first rice mills, in 1787, and, associated with his son, was the pioneer in their construction. In 1823 the junior Jonathan Lucas built a rice mill in London, by which he amassed a large fortune. Major Lucas was graduated at the South Carolina military academy in 1851, and during the subsequent decade was engaged in business at Charleston. He was elected to the legislature by the city in 1856, and twice re-elected. When a conflict between the sections seemed inevitable he introduced a bill providing for a select militia of 10,000 men, to be armed and equipped for instant service when needed
long under the fire of the guns, the forts had no advantage over the ships. General Duncan had made a gallant fight, but, after all succor had been cut off, he was compelled to surrender. After his exchange he acted as aide to General Bragg. But he lived only a few months longer to serve the cause which he loved so well. He died on the 18th of December, 1862, in Knoxville, Tenn., in his 36th year. Major-General Franklin Gardner Major-General Franklin Gardner was born in New York in 1823. His family moved West and he was appointed to the United States military academy from Iowa in 1839. After his graduation in 1843 and promotion to brevet second-lieutenant of the Seventh infantry he served in the garrison at Pensacola harbor, in scouting on the frontier, in the military occupation of Texas, and in the war with Mexico. He participated in the defense of Fort Brown, and the battle of Monterey, where he was brevetted first-lieutenant for gallant and meritorious conduct. He se

pastimes. What I know of the habits of the fresh-water fishes of Central Europe I mostly learned at that time; and I may add, that when afterward I obtained access to a large library and could consult the works of Bloch and Lacedpede, the only extensive works on fishes then in existence, I wondered that they contained so little about their habits, natural attitudes, and mode of action with which I was so familiar. The first course of lectures on zoology I attended was given in Lausanne in 1823. It consisted chiefly of extracts from Cuvier's Regne animal, and from Lamarck's Animaux sans Vertebres. I now became aware, for the first time, that the learned differ in their classifications. With this discovery, an immense field of study opened before me, and I longed for some knowledge of anatomy, that I might see for myself where the truth was. During two years spent in the Medical School of Zurich, I applied myself exclusively to the study of anatomy, physiology, and zoology, under

He went to Montgomery, Ala., in 1823, and made that city his home for many years. While living there he was elected major of Alabama militia. In 1834 he was in the Creek nation and was elected colonlooking to the development of his region of the State, until his death, November 7, 1891. Brigadier-General William F. Perry was born in Jackson county, Ga., in 1823, and was educated in his native State and in Alabama, where his parents settled in 1833. After leaving the schools he perfected his education by careful and constwas again elected mayor. His death occurred at Mobile, March 13, 1890. Brigadier-General Sterling Alexander Martin Wood was born in Lauderdale county, Ala., in 1823. He took a collegiate course, studied law in Columbia, Tenn., was admitted to the bar in 1845, and became the partner of his brother at Florence, Ala. In 1857 he
