all this he accomplished within the brief
period of four years.
In perhaps no oilier respect does Lincoln
excite our admiration so much as by his
writings. It Is easy to comprehend the
greatness of his character, but it is not
easy to understand what It was that gave
him so uiaivelous a power over his native
Positive Inspiration seems the only term

ness. We read in this book the utterances
ol other and celebrated orators, aud their
loftiest flights seem urtifli iul, strained aud
Ineffectual when compared with the siui
pl est utterances of Lincoln. Take such a
passage as this from his second message to
Congress, lis noble sincerity and dignillcd
eloquence may hardly be paralleled, search
in what field of literature we may:
"Fellow.cilUcns, we cannot escape his
tory. We of this Congress uud this Ad
ministration will bo remembered In spite
of ourselves. No personul significance or
insignificance ran spare one or unother ol
us. The fiery trial through which we pass
will light us down, in honor or dishonor
to the latest generation. V e say we are
for tho Union. Tho world will not forget
that we say this. We know how to save
the Union. The world knows we do know
how to save it. Weeven we herehold the
power and benr the responsibility. In giv.
ing freedom to the slavo we assure freedom
to the free honorable alike in what we
glvo and what we preserve. , We shall
nobly save or meanly lose the last, best
hope or earth. Oilier means may succeed,
this could not fail. The way is plain,
peaceful, generous. Just way which, If
followed, the world will forever applaud
and Ood must forever bless."
A deep vein ot nulauclioly run through
the character of Lincoln, appearing very
early in llfu, And the very exubcranco of
the in irtli fulness to which be was at times
excited was but a mask cast over tho grave
and serious reality of his nature. We can
understand how, to such a man, the poem,
"Oh, why should tho spirit of mortal be
proud r would convey deeper meaning
than It would to most men, and we can
also understand with what feeling he said
to a friend, when the cause for which he
wag struggling soemed doomed to failure
"I feel as though I shall never be glad any
more." e can also understand tlie pecui-
iar iuiprcsaiveness with which the lines
"Duncan la in his grave.

Came to bim on the lastfiunday of Llslife,
when he read them aloud, and, after a
pause, repeated them. His death wu the
one thing needed to give completeness to
a Ufa whose whole tenor was so highly
tragic as his. There is a se'nte in which
we may be glad that death came to him
at such a time ami ia audi a manner. His
Hie and death have a completeness und a
unity which appeal to the artistic sense;

The one who devotes his life to a (real
cause, must in very dceu pour, out liU
blood upon the altar, for It is this that
brings victory to the banners of that cause,
more even than all bis life can avail to do;
it is this that forever "signs him for king
among the tloiul."

they were rescued with great difficulty ;
and In no instant the caini) was alive
Although tho boats, sleds aud provisions
hud been placed close to tho tents to avoid
separation by just such a happening as
this, wu now found ourselves drilling
slowly away from them. Boards wero at
once thrown across the crick, nimble feet
sped back and forth, the sleds and boats
were successfully jumped over, and when
the gap had widened beyond the length of
the plunks, a way wag discovered around
it. The provisions recovered, our tents
were .quickly shifted farther back troin
the edge of the line, and we were soon

the yard arms were stripped and broken
upward parallel to the masts; and so, like
a great, gaunt skeleton, clapping its bunds
above its head, she plunged out of sight.
Those of us who saw her go down did
so with mingled feelings of sadness and
relief. We were now utterly isolated, be
yond any rational hopo of aid; with our
proper means, to which so many pleasant
associations nttached, destroyed before our
eyes; and hence it was nn wonder we felt
lonely and in a sense that few can appro-
elate. But we were satisfied, since we
knew full well that the ship's usefulness
bad long ago passed away, and we could
now start at once the sooner, the better-
