interested in the science of politics and social problems of the period.” But Italy was well represented in the brilliant and enthusiastic auditory at Florence; and, at the close of the course, Prof. P. Villari, also a member of Parliament, paid a most eloquent tribute to the United States, and moved the thanks of the assembly to the lecturer - for his appreciative recognition of Italy in her relations to the progress of liberty, learning, and art, as well as for his clear, learned, and impartial analysis of American freedom.”

In Paris the following resolutions were adopted, being moved by Isaac H. Birch, Esq., and supported by Prof. A. V. Wittmeyer :

Resolved, That we, citizens of the United States sojourning in Paris, have seen with pride and satisfaction that our compatriot, Dr. Joseph P. Thompson, has, on many occasions during his residence in Europe, rendered invaluable service by his able, timely, and patriotic endeavors to teach the history, expound the principles, and defend the honor, of the institutions and government of the United States, and secure for them juster appreciation and a more legitimate influence among European nations.

Resolved, That in the series of comprehensive, discriminative, interesting, and impressive addresses upon the origin, principles, progress, and probable future of the nation, with which Dr. Thompson has favored us, we have discovered fresh proofs of the purity, patriotism, wisdom, and statesmanship of the founders of our government; and, while our admiration of our country and its institutions has been heightened by the history and the vindication to which we have listened, our hearts have at the same time been warmed by renewed assurances of their perpetuity.

Resolved, That with the expression of our high appreciation of his good offices, and the hope that his valuable addresses may soon be given to the world and come to us again in printed form, we hereby tender to Dr. Thompson our warmest thanks.

“PARIS, May 29, 1876.”

In London the lectures were repeatedly noticed with favor by the “ Times,” 6 Daily News," 6. Morning Post,” 66 Advertiser," “ Hour,” and other journals. The audience was almost exclusively English, and of a highly distinguished and representative character. In moving thanks, Dr. Henry Allen said of

the lecture on the Declaration, “ It was as strong as wise and good. He had never known more thought and information compressed into a single discourse.” Henry Richard, Esq., M.P., said, “ The lecture on the Constitution combined in a rare degree a profound political philosophy with a manly eloquence. He wished it might be printed, and widely read in England.” Prof. Legge of Oxford said “his ideas about America had, for the first time, gained coherence through these lectures. They ought to be published for the million."
