n: He spoke of the statement of Dr. Johnson, that Burke could not be met under a tree in a thunder shower without impressing one with the fact that he was in the presence of an extraordinary man. He illustrated his point further by reference to the conversation of Johnson himself, as reported by his biographer, which had so long been among the classics of literature. One evening Sumner took tea at Jamaica Plain with Rev. James Freeman Clarke's family, where he talked of his last visit to Paris, and his dinner with Thiers. After dining at Longfellow's on the afternoon of November 12, he went to the Church of the Disciples in the south part of Boston to attend a social meeting, to which he had been invited by the pastor, Dr. Clarke. Mrs. Clarke writes as follows:— While on his way to the church he asked a gentleman in the streetcar about the exact locality. The gentleman told him, and then said, in a tone of inquiry, Are you a stranger, sir? showing that there was a Bostoni

Very faithfully yours, George Ticknor. To Count Adolphe de Circourt, Paris. Boston, May 30, 1842. my dear Count Circourt,—In your very kind and most agreeable letter, written last February, you ask me to write to you on the political prospects of the United States. More than once I have determined to do so, but havsomething that shall make a man submit more willingly to bear the name of an American. They that were in Hamburg when it was burnt up, or in Cape Francois when it was sunk, were better off than a citizen of the United States will be in London or Paris a year hence, if in the interval things go downward as fast as they have a year past. Take that to the next Cabinet meeting, and show it to President Tyler. They say he loves plain truth, and seldom gets it; but I rather think that, like other

harleston, where, after over half a century of distinction as a jurist, he died April 9, 1893. Isham G. Harris Isham G. Harris, war governor of Tennessee, was born near Tullahoma, Tennessee, February 10, 1818. At nineteen years of age he settled in Tippah county, Mississippi, where he engaged in mercantile business. He studied law during the night hours for two years and meanwhile was successful in trade, when, through a bank failure, he was left penniless. He resumed business at Paris, Tenn., and soon recouped his losses, manifesting, throughout this most arduous part of his career, a remarkable business ability, and indomitable courage. In 1841 he was admitted to the bar, and subsequently was elected to the legislature of Tennessee. In 1848 he was elected to Congress, where he served two terms with distinction. Subsequently he made his home at Memphis, and widened his practice as an attorney. He was chosen presidential elector in 1856, and was elected governor of Tenness
d and privates Alden, Abbott and F. A. Chase were sent, mounted, back to Berlin on the Maryland side of the Potomac, with requisitions for a supply of mules to take the place of the horses on our baggage wagons. While returning they were captured by guerrillas and taken to Belle Isle, Virginia. A detailed account of their experience will be found in the Appendix. Monday morning, the 20th, we continued our line of march, passing through Snickersville, near Snicker's Gap, Bloomfield, and Paris, all small villages, and camped at Upperville near Ashby's Gap, where we remained until the afternoon of the 22d, leaving at 5 o'clock, the right and centre sections advancing about six miles and camping at Piedmont. The left section having been detailed as rear guard to the supply train, was on the road all night in that capacity, and the next morning made a rapid march of twelve miles to rejoin the Battery. We overtook it at mid-day pushing on into Manassas Gap. We met a body of cavalry

of Gen. J. R. Anderson, who had been transferred to the control of the Tredegar iron works, and at Mechanicsville he was ordered to open the battle. Although wounded in the first combat of the Seven Days he remained in the saddle and fought through the entire series of battles. He was in every battle fought by Lee in Virginia, and only missed that of Sharpsburg, Md., by reason of being detached at Harper's Ferry to receive the parole of the nearly 12,000 prisoners captured. The Count of Paris, in his history of our civil war, states that in one of the battles, when the front line of the Confederates had been broken by the Federal forces, General Thomas struck their advancing column in such a way as to turn their expected victory into defeat. After the conclusion of the war he lived a retired life on his plantation until 1885, when President Cleveland appointed him to an important office in the land department, and in 1893 to a still more important one in the Indian department, w

d the responsibility of protecting a line of 300 miles from Cumberland Gap to Corinth, Gen. John H. Morgan spread consternation throughout Kentucky and Tennessee by his great raid into the former State. Leaving Knoxville on the 4th of July by way of Kingston and Sparta, he passed rapidly through Tompkinsville, Ky., where he crossed the Cumberland to Glasgow, Lebanon, Harrodsburg, Versailles, Georgetown and Cynthiana, where he had a heavy engagement on the 17th. Thence he returned south via Paris, Winchester, Crab Orchard, Somerset and Sparta, making the great circuit in twenty-five days, capturing many prisoners and destroying much military property and securing valuable recruits. Besides this, great demoralization was caused throughout General Buell's army and department, and many times the number of troops in his command were diverted from other service to protect threatened points or attempt Morgan's capture. Following are the reports of General Morgan, giving the details of
ashington, the State capital, as well as military headquarters. The pretty girls of that refined and hospitable community had the presence of the officers once more. Maj.-Gen. John Bankhead Magruder—Prince John, as he was styled in the palmy days of peace—was as much a society man as the youngest officer in the army. His nephew and aide-de-camp was as great a beau as had been his uncle in former days—and would be now. He wore a Confederate uniform, made and finished in regulation style in Paris. The parlors of these two chivalrous representatives of the old South were the scene of many costly and elegant festivities during the winter of 1864-65, while the warriors of his command were resting on their laurels in prospect of a quiet winter spent in quarters. There proved to be but little interruption to this welcome interval of repose. The annoying report of cavalry invasions into northeast Louisiana caused Cabell's brigade, with West's battery, to be hurried out of its snug sha<

for these admirable gifts, which I enter with sincere pleasure in my catalogue of books. You are indeed happy to have such a co-worker at your side. At the next opportunity I shall write my thanks to him personally. How is Dr. Hermann Hagen pleased with his new position?
