We are accustomed to regard our country as peculiarly law-abiding and peaceful. This, in spite of the fact that three presidents have been murdered within the last forty-five years, a record of assassination of chief magistrates surpassed in no other land, not even in Russia. We need not be surprised to learn that in no […]

Among marine disasters there is none more extraordinary in character or more appalling in consequence, than the loss of the whaleship Essex.
