poetry, , among which is one poem

called upon IJames G.- Carter, then
the editor 'oflthe Literary Review Of
Boston. " What is that young fellow

social with all. Hawthorne,;on the
other hand, was sensitive, shy., re
served, quiet l ind meditative, and he
often preferred to be by himself.
Says one of his old classmates to the
writer: " I think he was - the mot
peculiar young man in his tastesl
ever met. One peculiarity of his col
lege days I remember very well. On
leaving the recitation-room, instead
of keeping with the rest of the clais
as they stopped to laugh and ,chat,
Ile would immediately drop Off; either
by himself or in company with one
of his peculiar associates. I remem
ber it was often his delightto wander
awdy alone down among the 4)ines.
Here in sonic noiseless retreat he
'would remain for hours studying ansi
amusing by himself. lk seemed to
have a dread of contact with his fel !
low-students, and exhibited tenden
cies to solitude. But few of hitf.telasi
mates ever came to know hint
In college be had but 'three asso;
dates. With these he" wasvery inti
mate. One was ' Franklin Pierce-,
Pierce afterward became PreSident
of the United States, and Hawthorne
his biographer. I remember,''' con 4
tinned my informant, "seeing, thera
often together in college days, and I
know the friendship which they then
funned for each other lasted through
life. Hawthorne's two other !asso.i•
elates in college were Hbratio Bridge
now, at the head of the Bureau of
Clothing in the Naval Departinefit,'
and tleorue S. Sawyer, now Chief
Justice of South Carolina." In rec;!

able for Accuracy. In fact; 1W was,
very often 'deficient. Matheraaties
he disliked very numb. • He 'excielled
only' in one branch—that of a writer.
Professor Newman often spoke of his
translations as showing a high order
of taste, while' his, English coniposi
tions-wemalWays excellent. He, was,
indeed, [Over of literature, and pre
ferred nailer to give'vent to his nat
ural genius than to allow himself to
be cramped and moulded into the
mere, memorizing machine of the
class-room. Bid to complete the sto
ry, some one has said that Hawthorne
was blessed witlfit noble wife,. Whom
if he had never loved he would in all
probability have".died undeveloped
and unknown. Both are now dead.
Hawthorne sleeps on a pleasantihill
slope,near' Concord. His, ideal 'wife
rests in ,an old church-yard in ton
don. In Ilettivii, let . us trust, their
souls are again united.
When Franklin Pierce • entered
itowdoin College , in 1820. he wassix:
teen Years-mf age. Four years later
he graduated, and bade his friend
I;ittliorne, who was •to retuatif l ' an
other year, good-bye. Pierce,
told, did not do much during his first .
'two years in•eolleire. lie seemed to
look,upon the labors of a Greek or
Latin lexicon as a kind of an nnso
cial and unprofitable. drudgery. lAt
the end of his second year, however,
he suddedly changed his course. Pro
fessor Packard sags young Pierce af
terwards told him how it came about.
One _day as he lay on his bed the
thought of ,his whole past course,
with a remark on the subject dropped
by one of his cliss-mates, suddenly
daybed upon him. lie resolvedlO do
better. And-he did. Profeisor Pack
ard says he afterwards . heard-Pierte
recite in Locke at his junior exami
nation, and'it: was one of the best rec
itatons of the class. lam told, also,
that he was a very earnest student in
logic and political economy, and
while in college gave much .title to
the speeches and works of the.,best
BritiSh statesmen. his themes were
also noted - for their finish, inul
achieved not. a little reputation in
college as a debater.
.Even then he
was an ardent politician, and, says
my informant, " I have seen yoting
Pierce often laying down the case be
fore a knot l of politicians at the 'lll-
la , ge post office." A yonng man of
fine looks, pleasing address, and by
instinct a gentleman, lie was one of
_the most popular men at college---in
fact. a general favorite with nil.
Wliile in college he taught school
one winter in the riiratdiitriet4, of
Maine, and found much favor also in
the eves of all the country girls.
" Speakhvg of debating," says my
informant - , - " - I rememlkr one evening
as 1 passetrthrough the College hall
to my room, I heard some one speak
ing in an - earpest tone. The door of
the librigy.was. open. The members
of one of the college societies 'were
engaged in debate. The question
was a political , one. I paused and lis-
tened to this voice. The longer I re
mained the more seemed ihstened
to the place. At the close I decl#ed
I had never listened ton inure plausi
ble or ingenious argumeht. The
young man who made it was Frank
lin Pierce."
The --great Senator Fessenden, the
peer of Sumner, was also a graduate
of ROwdoin. He
,was a black-eyed
young boy when he entered college,
though it is said he proved hiMself a
goal 'scholar and a young man of ex
cellent habits. Yet the professors
found in him evidences of the same
sterling independence which he ex-,
hibitd in later life. In his college
days, as now, the'boys went, under
the name of " yaggers,7 a title given
to them byAlle students'. ~,Not unfre
quently the bitter foes; ihtryaggers
and students, met each tither in bat
tle: It Was not safe for a student to
be out at night alone. One evening
.it was suddenly announced that a
crowd of "yaggers," , had seized
student, and :were severely beating
him down in the pines. The military
company of students was suddenly
called out ,atid hastened to the scene..
Young Fessenden led the troops.. No.
sooner had he reached the field when
President Allen appeared, all .ablaze
with excitement. Says President Al
len : " Fessenden, I order you to
your room. Go at once or you will
suffer punishment." Fessenden in
stantly replied i "I should' - glory
be punished in such a cause," and in
the same breath ordered his young
soldiers on. The story -goes that
there Was some difficulty between
Fessenden and the faculty - about , the
time of his graduation, .on account of
which Fessenden's diploma was with
held. Inlater years, after the great
man gOt into Congress, the . collegt
faculty, it is said, offered to forward
his diploma to him, to which he r
plied that " he had got along withont
it thus fin-, andhe thought he eouldthe
rest of the iray." However this mar
' J
be t it is a well known faet . that in his
later years at' least he `was a very
firm friend of the college and not un
frequently came . back to visit tl 4 e
see es of his youth. •

;The di: overy of M. De la' Bastie,
by which he has succeeded in mak
ing glass hard and tough, has been
eXperime ted upon in New York for
two mon hs by Prof. Egleston, of the
school of mines, of Columbia col
lege, andi on last Thursday, , in the
COoperinstitute, an exhibition of
the glass Iwas given before a number
of the -glass dealers of New York,
and some members_, of the? , press:
Messrs. Patule and De la Chapelle,
1 .
agents of M. De la , -Bastie, were also
present. The tests to which the
ghiss wee subjected were so con
vincing that the New York World
branches out with a' column , ot edito

which we make tholdlOwing extract:

"Prof. Egleston flung glass pl;ttes
about the floor, tossed watch crystals
in the air like pennies,j dropped steel
weights front- heights 'ranging from
two to len feet upon plates •of pre
pared glass with as little effect as the
defenders of the 'castle of Front-de-
B4nuf rained down stones and beams
upon the iron-clad shoulders of Rich=
and Coeur de Lion. le convinced
his audience not only that the glasS
of M. De In Bastie cannot be broken
'excepting under jvery different cOn
ditious froin ordinary. glass and by
the. applicatiou lof much greater
force, but s also that it possesses the
peculiar Property . ; when it does break
of breaking "allnp," like a mass Hof
sand, so , that it no longer splinters,
and disseMinates the peril of look
jaw all about tholspot where it falls.
We are sure that no intelligent per
son *ho witnessed Prof.' Egleston's
experiments can 'have come away
without feeling that M. Dc la Bastie
has really begun,if he has not brought
nbOut, a revolution in one of the
most important of, our manufactures.,
There was a time . when it would have
been thought merely insane to. talk
of building paper boats or paper
coaches. Thanks to M. Dc la Bastie
the legend of Cinderella and her glass
slipper is in a fair way of becoMing
'commonplace fact. Some 30 years
ago .a French manufacturer electrifi
ed-the world of fanhion by weaving
wonderful stuffs for curtains and dra
pery, robes, cravats mid Waistcoats
out of threads of spun glass. We
May look forward now to seeing glass
chimney-baCks and mantles ; glaSs
dinner tables and / boot-jacks,' and
even, as Professor Egleston suggeS
ted, the luxury of living in glais
houses ourselves, ' without thereby
being deprived of the pleasure of
throwing stones at our 'neighbors.
Everybod reinembers the story Of
the distimMished hypoehondrMe whO
was made•• miserable by the convic
don that the lower part of his : bodY
had been' mysteriously converted
into glass, so that it could neither
walk about nor sit down with,conti
dence and decision, but' was compel!.
,ed to handle himself as gingerly as a
brisket of new laid eggs.
The altitude of the Stevens Mine
io n Mount McClellan is 12,500. At
t he depth of from 60 to 200 feet the
'crevice matter, consisting of silica;
Calcate•and ore, together with the
surroundnor•wall rock, is a solid
frozen mass. McClellan' is one of
the - highest eastern spurs of the snowy
range ; it has the form of a horse
,Shoe, with a hold escarpment of felts
ithatic rock nearly 2,900. feet high,
7hich in sonic places is nearly per
pendicular. Nothing unusual occur
red until a distance of some 80 or 90
feet had been made ; then the frozen
erritory was reached, and it has
ontinued for over 21)0 feet. There
are no indicritions of a thaw summer
Or winter. The whole frozen terri
tory is surrounded by hard, massive
rock, and.the lode itself is as hard
and massive as the rock.
The miners, being, unable to exea
-ate the frozen material with a Pick
r drill, found that the only way was
i o kindle a large wood lire at night
oainst the backend of the tunn e l,
and in the morning take out the -dis
mtrated ore. This has been the
mode of mining for more than -two
years. The tunnel is over 290 feet
deep, and there is no diminution of
the frost:- There is, so far as can be
een, no opening or channel through
Which the frost could possibly have
reached such a depth from the surface.
There are other mines in the same
vaeinity in a like frozen state. The
theory is, that the rock was laid down
in glacial times, Whenithere was cold
enough to freeze the very earth's
beart. In that ease the mine is an
iea-house, whose stores have remain
ed unthawed for at least 80,000 years !
The phenomenon is snot , uncommon
Or inexplicable when openings can
lie found throughAybich a current of
Or can pass ; but *i cases which, like
the Brandon frozen well and the Ste
1-ens mine, show no way for, idr cur
r nts, are still referred to imbedded
i .ebergs and the :glacinl 1 period .-----

sleepers and touched their bloated
faces with their gaunt skeleton fin

A bright little girl was playing
croquet, and knocking her ball with
the intention of placing it in position
so that she could pass through the
wicket when her time to play should
come again, was somewhat displeased
to see it roll too far, so that she *as
still out of position. Without utter
ing a word.of coMplaint, she walked
quietly to the ball, and with her foot
rolled it to the place where she had en
deavored to have it stop. AnOther in
the game kindly reproved her; told
her that it wai.wrong, and that if she
learned to do things which were
wrong in small things, like a game,
of pleasure, she would be more likely
to do so in large,things when .she
should be throwri . into the great
Struggles' of life. To this she read
ily responded, Why I saw grand
ma place . her ball before the wicket
the same Way awhile ago." And no
argument could Convince her but
that it was right,to thus take advan
tage of sher playmates,- because she
" saw her grandma do the same
thing." Thus an innocentlittle girl
chanced to be the observer of an act
by one to whom she looked for an
example, and thus a little mind was
poisioned which was perhaps as pre
as the reesh-fallen stiow. Anil thus
