from Sitka says that before the cession, in
1867, the sanitary - condition of the place was
very bad ; the hoases ' were tumbling down ;
decay marked everything, and . the "dock-
"card"' and "storehouses"speeitied in the treaty
had floated away in the fog: But with the ad=
- vent of the Americans the knee-deep-in-mud
streets have beew.gravelled, sidewall have
been laid, a sawmill has been built, houses are
erected, eleanlinesS prevails, improvement is
f everywhere manifest, and the place is now,
pronounced to be inhabitable.

Ti:. sister of th ll

Liars of her history. It appears from her state

four daughters. • Of these, Anna,. afterward
Dallied Barbara, was 'brought up by her aunt;

began to improve she ag . in begged to be taken
to the Convent of the' Visitation; . but she was
refused admission. Sim then 'obtained an in
, troduction to the Carmelite' Convent at Cra

-more of her, except that 'sho had become in

:sent to Eleanor r Irbryk (Barbara's sister) by
the AbbeAs of th convent is as follows :

Lady Byron and Mrs. Stone.
The Diary, , Refniniscences and Correspond
ence of—Henry'Crabb -Robinsoni Barrister-at
Law, F. S. A., selected and edited by ThonniS
Sadler, Ph. D;; lately published in London,and
just reprinted .this country, records what
was probably the first interview between Lady
Byron and Mrs: Stowe. This was in 1853,
when Mrs. Stowe was greatly ." lionized" in,
England, and the disciosineS which Lady
Byron made to 'lfrs: Stowe respecting What
she thought of Lord Byron; according to Mrs.
Stowe herself, were "on the occasion of a
second visit! to England in ISai." • Under the
date of May 24, 185:3, Mr. Robinson makes
record in his diary as folloWs : •
"At Mrs. Reid's, between three and four,
there were assembled Mrs. Beecher Stowe and
some twenty or thirty of MrS.Reid's acquaint
ance, to be introduced to the object of gene
ral curiosity. She looks young and quite un
pretending: She had-been - with Mrs. Clark
son. Lady Byron was,alsO present."
The same interesting diary • contains also
several letters. addressed to Robinson by
'Lady Byron, From the only one Which Makes
any mention of Lord Byron, we copy, thefol,, -
lowing: "
" LAM" TllllOl4 TO It. C. H.
" BRIG]] TON; March 5;1855.-I recollect only
those passages 'of Dr. Kennedy's book which
bear upon the opinions :of , :Lord ' Byron.
Strange as it may seem, Dr. Kennedy is most
faithful where you doubt . his being. Not
merely limn ,casual expressions, but from the
whole tenor of Lord Byron'S feelings,. I could
not but conelude he Was a believer the in
spiration of the Bible and had the
Calvinistic -tenets. To that unhappy view of
the relations of the creature to the Creator, I
have ahcoYs ascribM the misery of his life."—[Vol.
p *lli of 'Fields, lOsgoodS: Company's re
it would seem, then, that up to: March sth,
1855, Lady Byron bad "always" ascribed the
misery of Lord Byron's life; and so of her
own, so fat as she was connected With him,
to far different causes from those which she
stated to Mrs. Stowe only a year later; in 1856.
Of course this is open,:however, to another
construction. Mrs. Stowe, in her narrative,
says : "Lady. Byron expressed the feeling that,
the... Calvinistic theology ; as heard in Scot
land, had proved in this case, wilt often does
in certain minds, a. subtle poison."
The few letters given in the tolume!l"roM
which we have quoted show'that the greatest
intimacy and confidence exiistedhetWeen Lady
Byron and Mr. Robinson ; and as the printed,
letters are "selected," it, would,llie well, per
haps, for Mr.' Sadler L to go over.the tile again.

situations of a novel character„ and it is 'con
structed with such adMirable skill that the full
strength of the plot is developed and the
infixes are built up through the: acts to et, n
mate and powerful intensity. The language,
albeit rather too elegant for the characters, at
times, is agreeable and in -accordance with the

ingly, and Makes her' perforMance more at

compass, rare sweetness and flexibility, mid°,
sonic power. She tripped on sonic of her
high notes last night, but this was dueperhaps
to the rustiness consequent upon a long sum
mer holiday.
. . .
The audienee was not immense, but endour,
agingly large: It was a Very enthusiastie
audience. SometiMes we wonder how people
can summen up' courage enough to applaud
the 'old threadbare Appeals to thein.; which
are made constantly, upon the stage: Bait
there are, men and women, boy 4 in
the third tier who, even at this period of the.
Century, Avill get up and shout and:stamp and
clap their hands and Whistle Ontheir• uninvit

of General George Washington, or :Apostro
phizes the Anierican eagle, or 'invokes the
blessing of the GoddesS of,Liberty or excites
himself over contemplation of the ,surpassing
