Rev. Lyman lisienhertD, D.,.sias'born a
Connecticut Yankee. He was . possessed by
nature of a vigorous constitution, Which
was strengthened and rendered more firm
by manual` labOr in early life. He came to
our city of Boston somewhere about 1825;
perhaps a little earlier. Unitarianism had
been rampant [some twenty five years. Its
advocates hid said all the hard 'things, and
all the ridiculoue things, that could be
maid against the old established, doctrines,
of the Bible. They had — reviled Luther
and Calvin, with all the leading ,men of
the Reformation, and represented the
sentimenta 'of the " Pilgrim Fatifers" sus
anything but what they were—as anything
Beeplie,r was never "sound' in the
faith ;fl I mean, as a Calvinist. He never
held, believed, or, preached all the truths in
the "Assembly's , Catechism." He was
Nets Schaal to the hub, on the sinner's
ability., Bat' on the neitessiiy . of Regenera
tion; the Aionetnent, the :Personality and
office of theSoly'Spirit, Perseireialide of the
Saints, and the Trinity, he *sil wound, and
upon theme points he attacked the loose,
semi-infidel views of the whole class of
Nothingarisns, wbo congregated under the
banner of Unitarianism, and whose belief
consisted chiefly in a systematic arrangement
of negatives; or in a
,denial of sill *hicks the
Church had ever-Maintained.
Dr. Beecher was ndapted to - this
work.' He poises - aide wit,waayersa
tile, and quick ; talked,' 'without
writing ; and in such languag,e as to ,be
readily understood. He was a very useful
man, at this period, in Boston.
He was the fret minister who preached
and,published a aeries of lectures in Boston .

dealing with open and, flagrant sits; and,
up to the >time that Luther Tappan donated

at Cincinnati, Ohio; frovided that Doctor
Beeaber would remove there and take
charge of that Seminary, be did good in
the metropolis of Nei England. He was
reviled for a his temperance lectures, by
drunkards calling their liquor "Beecher's
, Beeeher's good, hoWever, was 'assails
mingled with some evil in his want of Or
thodoxy on-some= points:" Bet when he
removed to Ohio, his influence and popu
larity soon began to wane. He found him !
self in a different theological latitude from
that of New England,; and he was first
not matched only, but defeated by Dr.
Wilson, of. Cincinnati. From:that time to
the present, he has been on the wane'; and;
after his return to Boston, now ten or a
dozen years, his mind' has , been verging
toward second childhood.'- He still lives, at
a very advanced age, with mare bodily than
mental vigor,, and at our 'list aceOunt of
him, was, with hie., son, Henry Ward
Beecher, ilk Brooklyn,New York.'

it scarcely need be said, bats raised up a
numerous family. He would halm made a
politician of the Cromwellian or Van' Buren
School, had he - devoted his '!powers to State
matters. I believe he was a good maw;
and I wish I rould.say as much of his chil

customs of society , seem to demand that the

The circulation of this boOk was a very re.

to account for it, after it. had iiiken place,
unites he could see the "power bekind the

publisher, behind Mrs. H. B .StQile, the
writer, (if, indeed, she were the writer, but
which, it is rather supposed, took the whole

the fact that all the' books which have come
from the pen of Mrs. H. B. Stowe, since

A word for Miss Kate Beecher, and the
/mate part of Dr. Lyinin - Beioker's family
will 'be left'for the present. Missi Itate has
figured considerably' in finial/dug up young
lady. teachers for the West. When, they
had been collected by Eu Goiernor
of Vermontoind °there, frem . allaveeNew
England,' they were brought to Hartford,
Conn., and put under thei tuition 'oh Miss
Kate Beecher, who; • in , a very, few week's,
by her wonderful Oaitio powers, moulded
them over, and, ground them out full;fledged
teachers for that great,' unbounded, unde
finable countryi;.the West.
But this is not the only field in , which
Miss Kate hag' ehowtCherself. ,Some years
since, she took up her Pen to wield it as a •
battle•axe over thee luckless head of <the
young ininiate'r who would trot' m a r'r'y Miss
Bacon t Oster , of the Rev. Dr..Bacon,,of New -
Haven:: The' young Mari; it was said; was
worth'.tire. hundred thonearid dollars. He
hidicalled at Dr.. Bacon'a and !risen the Doe
tor's maiden sirder. She thought he ought
-telmarry her. The Doctor thought so too.
: But a ,Very . large number 'of his ' 'clerical
'brethren 'thought not, and the young man
did not marry her.
Mies Kate, Beecher came to the recede of
Miss Bieon—wrote' a beekin : her favor, in

She; has written several other , small

it to any great extent in either 'their books •

Some one said,. long , ego; "there are 'three.
clasies or kinds : Of men in our world : the
good, the had; laid the: ',Beeeher family."
But, from this va ry curious book, it,
seems is' though *nether class must now
be added"; , that 'is, a fourth; natrieiy,' the
female Beeoliers ; for Miss Catharine E.
alias Mila Kate Beecher, by, her clisaifica
tionm , seems determined that the 'male
Beeehers shall not have all the credit Of -
making wonderful 'discoveries, digging up
old heathen notions, . and newly broaching
semi infidel ideas. I really wish Miss Kate
had thought' over her eithjece more-- ' thorn'
°uglily, and digested it more particularly in
all its puts; sts.sheiviould, it is to'be hoped;
have reasoned more logically, and written
more satisfactorily, for her readers.
Having thus disposed - , of the, Rev. Dr:
Lyman Beeeher, the best of all the
Beeohers; and of" Harriet Beecher'
Stowe, and Miss Catharine E. Beecher, or,
the female Beecher's, I must reserve the
male Beechera of thee family for another
paper. They will keep; and perhaps, -
shoUhrsaid paper be delayed a Week or two
as they seem ever to be in a vasoinitting
condition—theY may, by that time , put on
