Last nluht Mr. Morris, in his flfio lec
tura on imagination, might havo qtiotol
as a flno spocimcn of imaginative writing
nnd as psrloetly doseriptlvn of thn
weather, llyron's famous lines deeriplivo
of a storm in the Alp). It is true, tho
livo thunder didn't leap from crng tocrHg
tho rattling peaks among, bnt only be
causo thorn wore no crags In this vicinity
to permit tho amuroment ot leaping, but
thunder hollowed with a low Voice, tho
lightning fluihod nnd tbo rain poured
down In torrents honest torronis, alter
it got undiir gnod headway. Dut nr,t
withstanding tho weather thu school room
of tho high frh'.-il building was crowded
with an lipprociativj aiidiencd lo liilan lo
tho lecture. It wii n, success in ovary
sense, nnd Mr. Morris should foel flattori.d
by tbo attention that was paid to him. Ho
began by saying :
1 havo selected as tho sufje,,t of a fow
remarks, with no aim at ItMtriietioti Im
agination," nnd perhaps I should lmvo
addnd, Anticipation, as it is to intimately
connected with tho imagination. AYo first
imagine, then anticipate. Imagination
piclurtH arid promise to anticipation tho
joy ami pi -aiuro or mo. pain and rorraw
orwtiai v., arterwnru experience, though
It n often d. . this unthrutbftilly as bon
oitly. Wo fpeak of imaiciiation in eonnwtinn
with tM!trv nnd tho lino art". We sav of n
bfrauliful painting or ari'bxquUilo pleco of
statuary : "im: an imagination Its
author must have!" and yet this miy not
be I run.
If tbo painting b a copy of a natural
landscapo roproentlng every bill and val
ley, rivulet an I shrub In fact, as nearly
as can b", an oxact oopy of tbo nnlura'l
icsnc, then imagination had nothing to
do In it production. If Ilierstadt's Yo
semito A'alley or Churcli's Henrt of thn
Andes &m faithful, correct to nature, then
laincinntl .n may havo had littlo to do in
producing '.hem. If tho Greek Slave be
a copy of in) other pleco of sculpture,
then the imagination of Fowors had llttlo
to do In its production; but if the subject
of tho painting or sculp. uro docs not, in
reality, exit, rr the artist has not bad it
for his rne !e! but only seen it with his
"mind' rvn. ' which is tha imagination,
then it i the fruit of thoimsgination first;
and then, ith tho assistance of bis skill,
it is prcducel to tho natural eye; but in
thi case .!. bvitlful form lfd first ex
ist in tbo imagination of Fowors. Hn
saw as plainly tho oxqui'its form nnd
grace of Ilia beautiful figuro before as af
ter bis chilli had modeled it. It was but
a transfer of it from his imagination to tho
marble, that tho world might see, r-dnilro
end love ii.
1 say wo spak of imagination in con
nection with poetry, und very properly
too; tnd. fr this reason, I much disliko
a definition of it civen by AYebstor, in
whijh bo simply calls it metrical compo
sition rhytM " I think thero is muoh
rhymo which shuld not bo honored by
tho name poetry. According to this defi
nition ' (in x m.ier hill a irreat way oil'
"A bull in,.' died with tlie whooping couh"
should be dtanifled by tho naruo of poeiry
'(.-I in. , - in my-lerloii- way
III. woinl. ri to ncrform.
Jlr plniiu hli foot-top. In tho was.
And ride upon the atonn."
Tho locturer then proceeded to deflno
poetry, preferring Coleridge's definition
to Yv'obster's. "Foetry," ho said, "mut
appeal to our emotions of love or pity
tho grand, tho majeslle or tho beautiful.
In short, it must touch n sympathetic cord
in our nnturo, or it is not poetry."
Mr. Morris then refill a sympathetic
poem, in his peculiar mm nor, and every
Imagination, tho lecturer asserted, must
onlor Into music, r.nd illustratml tho prop,
oaitlou at some lotigth.
Oratory, too, rcquiroi imagination, and
in this connection Mr. .Morris gave a vory
happy imitition ol Gough.
Tho actor must also ho posnwwl of im
agination or bo cannot m.-hiovo greatness.
Mr. .Morris then passed to a humorous
troatment of his sul.jtct, nnd depicted tho
disappointment of thn man who, with
nothing, iiimgino that vlien bo gathers
i'-'.OOO ho will bo satisfied. AYhon bo has
hoardod that amount, ho is poorer than
whon ho began to savn. Ho vr.nts more.
Thn poor man Is as rich as tho rich man,
if ho ran only think ro. Klches are all in
AYo cannot wo rngrnt to say givo tho
locturo in full, although it merits publica
tion. Hut then wo could not produco tho
lecturer's inimitable manner, nnd Hint was
moro than half tho address, although thn
matter wai most oxcollont.
Tho Imagination of tho fatbor picturing
tho futuro of his boy, of that of tho boy
looking forward with tho oyos of hopo,
of that of tho Christian anticipating tho
great berenftor, woro pictured in happy
Imagination working wonders in tho
night time, and frightening tho timid from
their propriety, whs skillfully and humor
ously handled, and tho imagination of thn
business man who persists in boliovlng
somobody is trying to injuro bis business
was used to prudui o a plcaiant sinilo.
Then camo a pleasant Jumblo of anec
dote, and oxpri-'kjtons full of wit and quia,
humor, ho.arahV, smilablo and laughable.
Tho sun story was particularly happy;
and, indeed, all this portion of tho locturo
was Inimitable. AYo wisli wo could glvo
it to our reader, but wo cannot.
Tha lecturer concluded as follows :
Imagination is u faculty of tho mind
possessed by every ono In a greater or loss
degroo; and Its delicacy, oxquijitnos and
power depend upon our cultivation i,u,
liner nnturo. '1 lioro limy bo Mrung and
lino imaginations with no oroativn power,
or in other worl originality. .' Wo may,
with littlo creative imagination, appreci
ate to tho fullest extent tho merits of i
lino painting or a sculpture, tho power
nnd beauty of poetry or music, to recog-'
nlyo tho mighty power of .lohovuh us it
appears to tho Imagination in tho vast
ami boundless prospects prctenlod tova by
nature in thu flrinamont of heaven, in
tho boundless oxpitnso of tho ocean, in
tho widu extended plains, In tho high
mountains, in an awful proclpl-o, In tho
bursting of tho thunder, In tho roaring of
tho tempest, in tho gay landscape, lu tho
llowory llel'l. In thn solitary lake, and in
thu aged foroit. Even tho rudo and un
civilized can sou his msjestio powor In all
"How oil' iiiuliM thick cloud iind d.ii
iIock lli .iM'ii') nil ruling irc
Choo .e to re hie, hi glory unnh.tin ii
And uilh tho utajcM) i.r il.iil.ne?-, round
Circles hi- throne."
From what Lhavosiid you will readily
gather thai although we may not nil bo
posseed of creative tmnglnalion, yet wo
all havo this powar toiipprcclnlolhngof.il,
tho beautiful nnd tbo right; and that wc
ro, to a great extent, thn masters of It;
that, by cultivation nttd tight living, our
Imaciiintions will ilwoll upon thorotmnr-n
which aro high and ennobling on gnod
and Impplnots in tho future, and Iheretiv
wo will bo mado purer and better, 1
thank you, ladles nnd gsntlomen, for your
very kind attention.
