CABBIXGTON. JOHJT B. CARRINGTOBT, JB Thursday Morning, Jan. 22, 1880. XENNYSON'S OREDrTOBS. A writer who signs himself 'J. O. 0." has an article in the Cornhill Magazine which has already made a tremendous stir in England, and whioh will attract much attention and cause much discussion in this and other conn- tries. In this article Tennyson is arraigned for extensive borrowing and stealing from other authors, and a great number of verified quotations are given in support of the charge. Among the authors from whom the great poet is accused of "appropriation" are Her bert of Oherbury, George Herbert, Cowper, Lucretius, Shakespeare, Fersius, Napier (Peninsular war), Keats, Oongreve, Horace, Shelley, Robert . Browning, Catullus, Pin dar, Petrarch, Moschus, Stephen Hawes, Theocritus, Wordsworth, Archdeacon Hare, Dryden, Beaumont, . Ford, George Peele, Webster, Callimachns, Homer, Virgil, Sappho, Martial, Dante, Milton, Fitzgerald, Dr. Johnson and others. "J. 0. C." begins his article by some adroit comments upon the extent to which Virgil borrowed of his prede cessors, and remarks : "John de Peyrarede once observed that he knew no task more in. structive than to compare Virgil's adaptations of Homer with the original passages to note what details he rejected, what he added, what he softened down, what he thought proper to heighten. It was a perpetual study of the principles of good taste. In full confidence that what applies to Virgil in the case applies with equal justice to the work of our Laureate, we propose to devote a few pages to the sub ject, by way of inaugurating a branch of Tennysonian research whioh must necessarily be gradual and cumulative, but whioh will sooner or later become indispensable to proper appreciation of his services to art. Every Englishman must be quite as jealous of the fame of the Laureate as our old friend Furius Albinus was of the fame of his beloved Virgil, and we have in truth as little fear as honest Furious of our remarks being construed into an insinuation of plagiarism against a great and noble poet." "In Memoriam" is first taken up by "J. C. C. to show Tennyson's obligations to others. Of this poem it is said : "The general scheme of -the work is undoubtedly suggested by the series of sonnets and canzoni dedicated by Petrarch to the memory of Laura. Not only do the several divisions into whioh 'In Me moriam' may be supposed to fall correspond with the divisions into which Petraroh's series may be fancifully divided, but the whole method and purpose of the two poets would seem to be precisely similar." There can be no doubt, the writer thinks, that the measure of In Memoriam," the hint of the cadence, and indeed the whole cast of the metre, have been taken from a very rare volume, scarcely known even to professed students of our early poetry the occasional verses of Lord Herbert of Cherbury. The following are a few of the quotations made to show how Tennyson bor rowed for the poem under consideration, which we give as they are given : Never morning; wore To evening but some heart did break, (vi ) from Lucretius : Nec nox ulla diem neoue noetem Aurora aecuta eat. Que non audierit mixtos vagitibua sgris Pioratus. His heavy sho tted hammock shrond Drops in his vast and wandering grave, (d.) from Shakespeare, "Kichard IH." ao i. so.8: To seek the empty, vast and wandering air. And from his ashes may be made The violet of his native land, (xviii.) Persius, Sat. i. 39 : Nunc non e tumulo f ortunataque faviila Xa8centur violce t That strikes by night a craggy shelr, And staggers blindly ere Bhe sink. (xvL) For this graphic touch see Napier, "History of the Peninsular War" (Battle of Albuera) : The Fueileer battalions, struck by the iron temDzst. reeled and staggered like a sinking ship. The beautiful euphemism "to cease." for to die (xxxiv.,) is of course from Keats' "Ode to a Nightingale" : To cease upon the midnight with no pain. 'Tis better to have loved and lost Than never to have loved at ail. (ixvil.) Oongreve, "Way of the World," act ii. sc. 2 : 'Tis better to hare been left than never to have been loved. Or possibly, as has been before suggested by Thackeray, "Pendennis," vol. L chap. vi. it is best to love wisely no doubt, but to love foolishly is better than not to be able to love at all." After dealing with "In Memoriam" J. 0. 0. goes on to collate other parallel passages at random up and down Tennyson's poems, merely stopping to remark that he does not propose to trace his obligations to Shelley and Keats, as they would of themselves form a n interesting paper. We quote : Dry clashed his harness in t he'icy oaves And barren chasm, snd all to left and right The bare black cliff clang'd round him, aa he based His feet on slippery crag that rang narp smitten. massing os Arthur. Now compare Wordsworth : With the din Meanwhile the preolpioes raog aloud, The leafless trees, and every Icy crag Tinkled like Iron.; As we have alluded to the "Passing of Ar thur," we may, omitting the obvious Homerio and Virgilian imitations, notice a very singu lar appropriation or coincidence. The two fine lines For so the whole round world Is every way Bound by gold chains about the feet of God- are the versifications of a sentence from Arch deacon Hare's sermon on the "Law of Self- Sacrifice :" Thia a the golden chain of love wherebv the whole creation is bound to the throne of the Creator. ITe may ne see for peeping flowers the grass, writes George Peele, in that loveliest of pas toral dramas, "The Arraignment of Paris." You scaroe could see the grass for flowers, echoes Mr. Tennyson ("Two Voices"). Now the noon-day quiet holds the hill is a literal translation of a line in Callimachus, Lavacrum Palladis, 72 : Mesambrina d'eich' horos hasuohia. Concerning the Arthurian poems and their resemblanoe to the original romance "J. C. C." says the whole of "Elaine" is taken, with the exception of the ornaments and illustra tive poetical matter, from part iii. chapters exxii. and exxiii., while much of the tone of the Fourth "Ineid" has been transferred into it. In like manner the "Passing of Arthur" is derived from part iii. chapters clvii. clviii. How closely he sometimes follows his original may be illustrated by one or two quotations. Of Lancelot the "History" says, chapter clxxvL : Thou wert the goodliest person that ever cams among press of knights, and thou wert the meekest man ana tne gentlest that ever eat In nail among la- Marr'd as he was. hs seem'd the goodliest man That ever among ladies ate in hall. And noblest. Again : And then he threw the sword into the water aa far as he miffht. and there came an arm and an hand above the water and canght it, and so shook it thrice snd brandished it. History. And clutch 'd the sword. But ere he dipt the surface rose an arm And caught him by the hilt and brandish'd him Three times. And so on and so on. "J. C. C." says he has by no means exhausted his list of these "interesting and instructive" parallel passages, and the spirit which animates his article promises that he will in time give to the world the rest of them. But even if he succeeds in depriving Tennyson of most of that whioh has passed for original with him his poetry will continue to be read with perhaps but lit tle less profit and pleasure. EDITORIAL NOTES. The report of the committee to investigate the subject of convict labor, a synopsis of which was published yesterday, shows con clusively that convict labor Is not a dangerous competitor with other labor, and takes away part of the stock in trade of the demagogues. The practice of "holy kissing" seems to be spreading in New Jersey. This time it is the Key, Gustav Hafermann, the pastor of one of the largest and wealthiest congregations In Hoboken. He kissed his eighteen-years old brunette cook a great deal oat of "pure Christian motives," and because he regarded her as a daughter. The trustees think he is very "ecoentrio," and that on the whole it would be better for him to resign. - Kissing the cook is not always safe, even for a minister. The mines of Maine, of whi ch some ac count was recently given in these oolumns, have been carefully examined by Prof. Stew art of Virginia City, who has been three months at the work. At a recent lecture In Portland he said : "The mines of Maine, like those of every other place, have, upon the surface, deposits of metals whioh, as we go deeper, disappear and give way to deposits of silver. The mines of Maine are much richer than those of Nevada. The Sullivan and Blue Hill mines promise to be among the richest in the country. Around Frenchman's Bay and along the valley of the Penobscot I believe from investigations I have made that there are mines of surpassing richness. Of course I don't mean to say that every mine is a bonan za) far from it." In Hancock county there are rioh veins of copper, and he predicts that next year the price of copper on Lake Supe rior will be changed. Jules Favre, the French lawyer and states man who died at Versailles Monday night, was seventy-one years old. He was born at Lyons of a mercantile family, and was in Paris studying law when the revolution of 1830 broke out. From that time onward he never ceased to profess Republican principles, though they were generally out of fashion. After the revolution of 1848 he was secretary of the Minister of the Interior, and also un aer secretary tor Foreign Affairs, tie op posed the election of Louis Napoleon to the Presidepcy, and after the coup d'etat he re fused to take the oath to the new constitu tion, skid thereby forfeited his election to an administrative office. In the Legislature he was a strenuous opponent of imperial meas ures, and especially the declaration of war against Germany. After the surrender at Sedan he advocated the exile of the imperial family, and in the new government he be came Minister of Foreign Affairs and Vice President of the provisional government. In his negotiations for peace with Bismarok his theatrioal exhibition of sentiment pro. voked the ridicule of that cynical statesman. Upon Thiers' accession to the Presidency, M. Favre withdrew from political life, and has since confined himself to the practice of his profession. Congressman Acklen, of Louisiana, is man for his constituents to point with pride to, and also for his fellow members and the country for whioh he helps make laws to be proud of. Last winter, as may be remem bered, he was guilty of gross misconduct in a Washington restaurant. It is now stated tbat he has been guilty of a very serious attempt to deceive the House. He is interested in some Nicaraguan claims and has urged the matter upon the attention of the Committee on Foreign Affairs with great pertinacity, but has not suooeeded in gaining anything except the reference .of the case to Mr. King, of Louisiana, a member of the committee, for consideration. Becoming impatient, during Mr. King's absence from the oity, Mr. Acklen had the effrontery to submit to the House what purported to be a favorable report by the Committee on Foreign Affairs on this business. Mr. King, upon his return, discov red what had been done, and brought the subject before the committee. He and all the members of the committee were naturally indignant at this unheard-of proceeding, and it was seriously considered whether Acklen's oonduct ought not to be reported to the House with a recommendation that exemplary notice be taken of it. He was let off, how ever, being only required to withdraw the spurious report from the House files. If he were not a Congressman it would seem that Mr. Acklen, of Louisiana, is on the road that leads to a prison. Governor Blackburn, of Kentucky, in his annual message portrayed vividly the terrible condition of the penitentiary of that State, and now the report of the Prison Sanitary Committee has been made to the Legislature and describes a deplorable state of affairs. The committee finds that there are eight con victs oonfined there who positively cannot live longer than a few months. There are at least 50 others, some of whom are confined to their beds, who in all probability cannot live longer than the latter part of this spring, and about 200 others who are in a - state of debility and weakness practically unfitting them for duty or work. The remainder of the conviots do not present a healthy appearance and seem affeoted by the injurious influences which have prostrated the others. The causes of this state of affairs are found by the commit tee to be numerous. The penitentiary grounds are badly drained, and the sewerage is so defective that in damp weather water stands in portions of the inclosure from whioh arises a malaria, rendering the air impure. The yards, cells, and work shops are over crowded, and the accumulation of filth and general lack of cleanliness within the prison contribute to the generation of disease. There is a general lack of ventilation in the system and construction of the houses and cells. The committee expresses the opinion that one of the direct causes of the unhealthiness of the convicts is due to their not being supplied with a sufficient variety of wholesome food. It is hardly to be wondered at that Governor Blackburn felt justified in pardoning as many as he did out of such a place. RECENT PUBLICATIONS. The Tribune Almanao for 1880, just pub lished, is a valuable collection of statistical information which not only editors and politi cians, but all classes of business men, will find useful. Besides the usual calendar, there are summaries of the laws of the last two sessions of Congress, political platforms and constitutional amendments adopted in 1879. The chapter on the eleotions of United States Senators is next in order, and Is followed by a table of the electoral vote for President from 1864, and lists of the principal executive, de partmental, diplomatic and judicial officers. There Is also much other valuable matter. Harper's Magazine for February is rioh in illustrations and varied and entertaining In its reading matter. The illustrated articles cover a wide range of subjects. Howard Pyle writes and Illustrates "Bartram and his Garden." The Bev. B. F. DeCosta contributes a humor ous article on "Foreign Tips," which furnish es motives for eight characteristic pictures by Beinhart. Mrs. J. W. Davis describes "A Famous Breviary." One of the most inter esting articles that have ever been written about General Washington is that contributed to tbis number by William F. Oarne, treating of "Washington as a Burgher," i. e., in his re lations with his fellow townsmen of Alexan dria. The illustrations are exceedingly inter esting. The Hon. John Bigelow contributes an illustrated paper entitled "A Visit to San Marino,' 'from which it,would appear that the title of "republic," aa applied to this province of Italy, is a misnomer. A. B. AUen contrib utes an illustrated description of the "Per cheron and Norman Hosre." to the breeding of which so much attention has recently been given in this country. A. A. Hayes, Jr., con tributes his series of Colorado papers, with an entertaining description of the mining dis tricts of that State, with twelve excellent il lustrations by Rogers. The Bight-Reverend Arthur Cleveland Coxe contributes a poem en titled "The Drop Star," an Indian legend ot Lake Kayutah, in New York, whioh is beauti fully .illustrated by Beinhart. Blackmore's new novel "Mary Anerly" is continued, and Black's "White Wings." Edward Everett Hale contributes a short story "Mr. Keesler's Horse-Oar" conceived and written In his happiest vein. A brief history of thrilling interest, entitled "A Night in an Avalanche," is contributed by S. H. M. Byers. A timely musical contribution to the number Is the paper on Hector Berlioz, by Emily Koyall. Among the poems in the number Is one by James T. Fields, in his best vein, entitled "A Lover's Peril." "A Symposium of Wood Engravers" contains a great deal that is in teresting. The "Editor's Easy Chair" ren ders a graceful tribute to Oliver Wendell Holmes, apropos of his recent reception in Boston, and discusses, in a thoughtful essay, the reaction against Dickens due to that au thor's personal characteristics. Lippincott's for February is, as usual, strong in its sketches of travel and adventure. It contains the eighth of Dr. Oswald's "Sum merland Sketches," which takes the reader through regions rarely visited by travelers ; "A Day with the Ottawa Chantier Men," by Frederiok Mather, a pleasant account of a visit to the great lumber region of Canada, and "Old and New Kouen," the first of two pa pers by Edward King upon one of the most noted cities of France all these papers being liberally illustrated. An anoymous writer disousses the claims of Kansas City to bo the site of "The Future Capital of the United States ;" and there are papers on "Tha Bona partes in Exile," "Decorative Art and its Dogmas," "The Pleasant Land of Lome," by whioh is meant the Hebrides Islands, and on life in the back woods of Virginia. "Adam and Eve," the new serial story, progresses sat isfactorily; there are two short stories, a poem by Elaine Goodale, and the editorial depart ments conclude an excellent number.

Governor Andrews yesterday nominated to the Senate four State commissioners who were confirmed, besides making other nominations. Two of the commissioners George W. Woodruff of Litohfield as railroad commis sioner, and James W. Hyatt ot Norwalk as bank commissioner have served heretofore. John W. Brooks of Wolcottville is appointed insurance commissioner in place of John W. Stedman of Norwich, and William H. Hay- ward of Colchester is selected to fill the un expired term of two years of General Walker of New Haven who was appointed last year but declined to serve. The appointment of Mr. Hayward raises several questions that seem to be pertinent in , connection with the statutes and executive nominations. In the act whioh oonfers upon the Governor the appointment of railroad commissioners, it is provided that "no stock holder or agent of any railroad company shall be a commissioner." The object of this provision is apparent. Mr. Hayward is not only a stockholder, but a director, and the president of a railroad ' company.' He must retire from these places to hold the office of commissioner to conform to the law ; but the law itself probably never contemplated this dilemma, though it does not expressly provide against it. Mr. Hayward is also a State Senator just re-elected for two years. When the appointment of commissions was taken away from the General Assembly, one or tne strongest arguments urged in favor of a change was that by the caucus system mem bers of tha Legislature had opportunities to secure places for themselves ; and moreover it was thought that the publio servioe would be best secured by the selection of outside) men. It has been olaimed by railroad cor porations in this State that the board of com missioners have final jurisdiction in all mat ters brought before them, and that was the claim pressed in the Plantsville case ; but the courts have held that the Legislature may re view the aots of tne commissioners. As questions are more than liable to go to the Legislature over the heads of the commission ers, and as all matters of legislation affecting railroads precede the action of the commis sioners, members of the board ought not to be in a position to exert an active influence upon legislation. Aside from the moral as pects of the case, as pointed out. which hincra closely upon the legal, the fact that Mr. Hay ward has been as Senator chairman of tha Railroad Committee and a conspiouous repre sentative of the railroads in that position, af fords an additional reason why the people of the State would take more satisfaction if a man less identified with railroads had been se lected. The Governor seems to have changed his views aa to the proper qualifications of a railroad commissioner since his appointment of General Walker. Bev. T. D. Murphy has resigned the na- torato of the Gran by Seoond Congregational church, which he has held for fifteen years.
