ers will llutiik us lor giving them seme
particulars ot the liiu mid ch ii HiMei' ot this
jood man jut now touching his three
score yearn nml ten.
Whiltie Iihs otten been called the Uurns
of America. The same simplicity ot lan
gnage, the Hliunst i-x:ltiive ut-e, of com
mon Anjjlo baxon word, the descriptions
of lowly lite ar.d the humblest scenes in
nature, the same wholehearted and gener
ous appeal to whatever is bet in hu
manity, pervade the wi kings of both.
Born in poverty anil reared Jut the plough

ucation than that obtained at the road
side sehoo'-hotise and by an attendance ol
two yours tit an academy, but with hap
pier surroundings ot home and society
than fell to the lot of his Scotti.th prototype
with an unyielding, lite-Ions adherence to
temperance in all things, snicierity, and
love ot his kind, this good man, just now
verging upon his three score years and
ten, has made tor hiuisell a place in the
hearts of his countrymen, and in those ot
the best of all English speaking countries,
like that which Burns iias held tor a cen
tury past on the banks of the Ayr and in
bonnie Dundee. His loye ot Burns, ivu
plated early and growing with his growth
and his acqtiai ita-ce with his writings,
are pie i; an ly told in the lol'oving uccount
from his ow.i m :
'Bums is to me the noblest poet of our
race. He Wis the first j.o t 1 read, and
he will be the 1 ist. One diy aim ot our
preachers came to stay ad niuht, and
noticing, as we sat by the fire, tint 1 was
intent upon a book, he s:iid, 'I will read
to thee, it t'.ieie likes, some poems by
Robert Burns. I have a copy with nit.'
So he got the boak and began to read. It
was th j first I had heard of Hums, a d my
wonder and delight over what I hea d are
as lreh still as i' ic were yesterday. I had
heard nothing up to that ra ment, it
seemed to me, that had any ri:ht to be
called poetry ; and I listened as long as
the old man would read. I noticed he
left the book on the table ; so I rose at
gray dawn next morning, and red lor my
self. I was hanging over the book when
the Friend came down, and then he told
me he wes going tarther to visit such and
fiuch meetings, would be back at such a
time, and, it I liked, would leave the book
with me. Thee may be bo sure 1 grate
tally accepted his offer. I read Burns
every moment Iliad to spare; and this
was one great result to Hie ot my com
munion with him: I found that the things
out ot which poems came were not, as I
had alwavs imagined, somewhere away
off in the world and lite lying outside the
edge ot our rsew Hampshire sky; they
were l ight there about my feet, and among
the people I knew. The common things
of our common life I found were lull of
paelrv. It was a new and a perfect reve
Wnittier's lather was of a tall, gigantic
long-lived race able to cope with bcais or
Indians, both ot which were not untre
quently encountered on the banks of the
Merrimac, where our poet was born, and
where most et lite has been spent; a non
resistant by principle and in practice, as
except perhaps in the case ot wild beasts
or all Quakers; a good, well-meaning,
useful man in his day and generation. He
however, could not see in his boy any
thing more than he himself was, or nisre
than were his ancestors before him, a
pro misiug ploughman jbut.the boy's mother
with keener insight, recognized the divine
spark, and happily encouraged and minis
teret to it. until it broke forth into aflame
which has burned with ever-iacreasina:
fervor, until the brow then clustering with
raven locks has been silvered with age.
Ot his mother ot French decent, with
the maiden name ot Abigial Huzzey
Whittier says, in tke idenais' Review:
"All that the sacred word mother means
in its broadest, fullest significance our
mother was te us; a friend, helper, coun
selor, companion, over-loving, gentle,
and unselfish. She was spared to us in
the seventy-eighth year, and passed away
after a sickness ot about three weekb.in the
full possession et her taculles, ia exceed
ing peace, and with an unshaken trust in
the boundless mercy ot our Lord. It was
a beautiful and holy death-bed. Perfect
love bad cast out all fear.' Another mem
ber of the family writes : 'Perhaps I may
be too partial to the mercy ot mother,
though I conless, lor my part, I only
fear I do not sufficiently revere her mem
ory ; she was really and truly a good
mother to us. She had no moods, was
ever patient, affectionate, and firm. She
so sympathized with misfortune and dis
tress that she ceuld not wait to investi
gate, and consequently sometimes gave
to those who were unworthy ; but, if that
be a weakness, it is ot the order that no
one will be ashamed ot before the Judge
of all. I wish every one had more ot it.'
Whittier himself was very sensitive and
diffident. He sent his boyish effusions in
8 bit way 10 tne nearest village news-
and blushed to his finger-tips when
Wlitim Loyd Garrison, who edited the
paper, atter a long and diligent search,
lonnd bim out ; out tne nour had come,
and then and there, in an obscure farm
boose in East Haverhill. Massachusetts,
these two men then in their teens, now
so famous and beloved first ttruck
bands, and for more thau half a century
haye pursued, each in his own way,
throngh evil report and good report, the
fath ot conviction and rectitude, and yet
ive to reap a rich reward ot appreciation
Ia his extreme modesty. Whittier con
sidersibis literary attainments rather acci
dental and fortuitous. Indeed, as has
happened to more than one ot the men
who bar won the admiration ot their
fellows and achieved greatness, he vss
at first without honar In the eves of his
mates at school and on the farm, and
their ridicule of bis attempts at verse was
so stinging that the passion lor writing
well-nigh died out of him, lor very vexa
tion and shame. His own judgment ot
his writings, alter the mature considera
tion et filty years, is thus expressed hi a
letter to a friend lately : 'I have not been
Able to place a very high estimate on my
writings. I know too well their defi
ciencies. But I have given the publics the
best I had te give, and the measure ot
tavor with which it has been received has
been a constant surprise to me. This,
at least, I can say truly, that I have been
actuated by a higher motive than literary
success; and it has been my desire that
whatever influence my writing may exert
sheuld be found on the side ot molality.
treedem, and Christian charity,
Mr. Whittier has attempted other parts
from tine to time than that of poet, dri
ven tliereie by that bane ot literary men,
res anqima dmt. At eighteen he es
sayed school keeping; bat the rough, ha
rum scarum boys of the district were too
much ler aim, and he resigned, lor
years thereafter he called himself an edi
tor, but never attained more than moder
ate success in that apparently easiest ol
ill professions. He has represented Ha
verhill and Amesbury occasionally in the
Massachusetts legislature, but it is Re
lieved that he does not pride himself ou
his record as a legislator or politician.
He never was yery poor.' because his
wants were small, and because, with the
frugality and conscientiousness character
istic et Quakers everywhere, his outgoes
never exceeded his income. It is related
that years ago, when he was not as popu
ar as tan is now, he was walking one day
on Cornhill when he met Muzzey. the
publisher and pill seller. Atter" some
conversation about poetry and one thing
and another, Muzzey proposed to pay
him $500 tor the copyright ot his produc
tions, and a percentage on the sales. Mr.
Whitiier was vastly astonished. He
thought pill and ok making had com
bined to make the man crazy ; but Muz
zey was in dead earnest, ami at last air.
whittier, with a reserved feeling ot com
passion for the demented publisher, con
sented to the arrangement. Mnzzey
brought out the hiiherte ill dressed and
oiscure children ot the poet's brain,
which he p eked up here and there, in
neat and attractive shape. The sales
which immediately followed astonished
nobody so much as the poet himself; but
he gradually reconciled himselt to them,
and began te put money in his purse. He
realized, however, no yery great sum
from his productions before the advent of
Snow Bound, which he himselt considers
a very indifferent bit ot versification, its
sudden popularity being ene ol the great
est surprises of his life-. Mr. Charles U.
15 rain md, who made hi in a visit soon at
ter its publication and tells the story.
savs: 'I found his heuse newly painted
and improved, whereupon I said to him.
'It is evident that poetry has ceased to be
a drug in the market The uext morn
ing Mr. Whittier's answer came. U was
in the winter, and as the poet went up to
the fire to warm his boots preparatory to
putting them on. he said : 'Thee will have
te excuse me, lor I must go down to the
omce ot tne collector.' men, witli a
humoroas gleam in his eye. he added
Since Snow Bound was published, I have
risen to tne dignity ot an income tax.'
In 1840, thirtv-seven vears age, Whit
tier gave up newspaper writing and other
public working and retired from public ob
nervation, almost entirely, to a plain,
white, old fashioned house, which his
limited means enabled him to purchase,
on the outskirts ot Amesjury, a manutac
turing village in northeastern Massachus
setts.Here he has lived ever since, devoting
himselt entirely to literature, having tor
his only companion until 1864 when she
died bis last surviving sister, Elizabeth
His study is a cosy roem ot medium di
mensions ; a cheery, epen fire place, with
the old fashioned brass andirons, is
prominent feature ot it, indeed, all the
poets seem to look upon staves as lulolcr
able innovations and pledged enemies to
poesy; near window is his writing: table
which is usually strewn with manuscripts
and writing materials, very rarely inclu
ding books ot reference ot any kind
there are a tew chairs, some simple pic
tures of anti slavery acquaintances on the
walls, with here and there a photograph
ot some literary er personal triend. Uis
book cases are roomy and well filled, and
the number of autograph books sent bim
by authors is yery large.
Usually it is not long after he conceives
a poetical idea before be has it reduced t
writing. He writes only when the mood
seizes him, and then he writes as it fired
with inspiration, losing all consciousness
ot time and things, coins out of himself
as it were, and becoming part and parcel
ot his subject. His first dralt suffers little
subsequent alteration, and the various
editions ot his works represent little or no
time spent in revision. A thought seizes
him: he dees not mature it by slow pro
cesses and an infinite number of inciden
tal thoughts and mental finishing touches ;
he deliberately seats himselt at his plain
little writing-table, and at once puts it
upon paper. May be it is a poem of four
er five short stanzas he will write : he
does not strain atter his ideas or expres
sions ; they tranquilly oome to him as fast
as he needs them, and he writes them
down. He may scratch a half line here,
and there, and begin again ; he may sub
stitute one word for another Jnat does
not meau enongh; but there is no strug
gle, no nervous fidgeting about with the
legs; no biting the top ot his pen handle
in mental agony; no waiting for the
sluggish current ot thought to bear along
on its surface the right idea.
. In stature Mr. Whittier is like his
ancestors, tall, measuring six feet or
more, ol slender baild. but straight as
an arrow; a fine-looking, oldish man,
with bigb forehead, a fine face, a quiet
smile, dark, piercing eyes, and hair once
black, but new thinned and gray. He
dresses in a so it of black cut in Quaki r
fashion and his speech is characterized to
a slight extent by the peculiarities ot the
people whose form of service and creed
he prefers to any other: although, it is
well understood the latter is hardly broad
enough to cover all his opinions and con
victiona. He walks about the country 'in
theneighborhoed;ol hishome considerably,
is pleasant and companionable with his
neighbors, but never drives in a carriage,
and cannot be coaxed or compelled to at
tend a gathering ot litcrateurs or ex anti
elavory peoplo. a ljceum lecture, or any
pecular assumblyjwhatever. He occasion
ally' not olten, visits Boston, and
usually spends there a portion of the win
ter at the house of his friend. Ex -Governor
William Cluflin ; he has never been
abroad, and Washington, which he visited
on one occasion, is the extreme limit of
his journeying in this country.
Speaking of Whittier, a recent writer
has remarked 'Distinguished es will be
his place Jin the annals ot literature, jnstly
famed as he is for his exquisite and soul
stirring poetry, to us, Whittier, in his own
pure, sweet, beautiful lile, is far grander
than in his writings. His life is highest
poem. The man is tar nobler than the
poet,' and Mr. Charles H. Brainard truiy
says. 'Mr. Whittier's lile has been more
beautiful and true than any poem that
ever fi.jwed tioni his inspired pen, and
fully justifies the warm eulogium con
tained in the clo.sing hues of a beautilul
tribute to his lite and character from the
pen of his devoted Iri nd, tlio late Phube
Hut not Ihv strains with courage rife ,
Not holiest livuins, shall rank above
The rhythmic bounty of thy life,
itself a cuutiole ol love.''"
Six years .go, at the age of sixty-tour,
Whi tier wrote the following poem, which
appeared in the October number ot the
Atlantic Monthly of 1871, which it will be
ttnely to read again in view ot his 70th
birthday next Decern her.
BeneiU.li the moonlight and the snow
Lies dead my latest year;
Ths winter winds are wailing low
Its dirges in my car.
I grieve'not with the moaning wind
As if a loss befell;
Before se, even as behind,
God is, and all is well I
His light shines on mo from above,
His low voice speaks wltbis,
The patience of immortal love
Out wearying mortal slu.
Not mindless of the growing vears,
Of cure and loss and pain,
Mv epesare wet with thankful tetiri
For blessings which remain.'
If dim the gold of life hns grown,
I will not count it dross,
Kor turn from treasures still my own
io sign ior lacK una loss.
The years bo charm from Nature take ;
As sweet her voiecs call,
As beautiful her mornings break,
As lair her evenings fall.
Love watches o'er my qniet ways,
Kind voices speak my name,
And lips that Had it hard to praise
Are slow, at least, to blame.
How softly ebb the tides ot will !
How fields, oncn lost or won,
Sow lie behind me green and still
Beneath a level sirn I
Hw hushed the hiss of party hate,
The clamor of the throng !
How old, harsh voices of debate
Flow Into rhythmic soag I
Mothinks the spirit's temper grows
Too soft in this still air.
Somewhat the restful heart foregoes
Of needed watch and prayer.
The bark by f nmpent vainly tossed
May fonnderin the calm.
And he who braved the polar frost
Faint by the isles of balm .
Better than self-iiiiluUent years
The outtiuiig heart of youth;
Than pleasant song in idle ears
The tumult of the truth.
Rest lor the wearv hands Is good,
And lve for hearts that pine,
But let te manly habitude
Of upright souls be mine.
Let winds that blow fr.m heaven refresh.
Dear Lord, the languid air;
And let the weakness of the flesh
Thy strength ol spirit share,
And. If the eye must fall of light,
The ear forget to hear.
Make clearer still the spirit's sight,
More fine the inward ear I
Be near me in raino hours of need
To soothe, or cheer, or warm,
And down these slopes of sunset lead,
AS up the hills of morn I

the tanneries ot that country, and found
out for himself the secret of the Russia

seeret has been known, however, a long
time, and is simply the result of birch"
bark tar, with which the skins are dressed
in place of tallow and grease, the latter
sibstance being so largely used as food
among the lower classes. This tar,
which is carefully saved as it exudes from
the wood when burned, was first used as
a substitute for wheel grease in Russia,

and dressing of skins. By a system ot
