Mr. Parton has done a good service in recalling a character which had well-nigh passed out of popular thought, though not entirely out of popular recollection.

Our space will not permit us to point out all the mistakes which Mr. Parton has made, and we will mention only a few which attracted our attention upon the first perusal of his book.

Mr. Parton tells us that Burr's rise in politics was more "rapid than that of any other man who has played a conspicuous part in the affairs of the United States"; and that "in four years after fairly entering the political arena, he was advanced, first, to the highest honor of the bar, next, to a seat in the National Council, and then, to a competition with Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Clinton, for the Presidency itself."

In 1792, at which time Burr received one vote in the Electoral College, all the electors voted for Washington; consequently the vote for Burr, upon the strength of which Mr. Parton makes his magnificent boast, was palpably for the Vice-Presidency.

Mr. Parton says, that, in the House of Representatives, Burr would have been elected on the first ballot, if a majority would have sufficed; and that Mr. Jefferson never received more than fifty-one votes in a House of one hundred and six members.

Mr. Parton comes into conflict with other writers upon matters affecting his hero, as to which he would have done well if he had given his authority.

Matthew L. Davis, Burr's first biographer and intimate friend, says that Burr's grandfather was a German; Parton, speaking of the family at the time of the birth of Burr's father, says that it was Puritan and had flourished in New England for three generations.

Mr. Parton makes Burr a witness of a dramatic interview between Mrs. Arnold and Mrs. Prevost shortly after the discovery of Arnold's treason, the particulars of which Davis says Burr obtained from the latter lady after she became his wife.

Mr. Parton does not appear to have the power of distinguishing between conflicting statements of the same thing.

But the most curious exhibition which Mr. Parton makes of this mental and moral confusion occurs in a passage where he attempts to prove his assertion, that "Burr has done the state some service, though they know it not."

It is impossible to define Mr. Parton's opinion of his hero.

At the end of the volume Mr. Parton makes a summary of Burr's character,says that he was too good for a politician, and not great enough for a statesman,that Nature meant him for a schoolmaster,that he was a useful Senator, an ideal

Mr. Parton occasionally assumes an air of impartiality, and mildly expresses his disapprobation of Burr's vices; but in every instance where those vices were displayed he earnestly defends him.

In the contest with Jefferson, Parton insists that Burr acted honorably; in the duel with Hamilton, Burr was the injured party; in his amours he was not a bad man; so that, although we are told that Burr had faults, we look in vain for any exhibition of them.

Mr. Parton has tried all three modes, and failed in all.

Mr. Parton's explanation is, that "Hamilton probably implanted a dislike for Burr in Washington's breast."

Mr. Parton finds in this abundant material for extravagant eulogy of Burr.

Mr. Parton devotes a chapter to the refutation of this charge, but does not succeed in making a very strong argument.

Mr. Parton thinks that the challenge was as "near an approach to a reasonable and inevitable action as an action can be which is intrinsically wrong and absurd."

It establishes the general charge, which Parton virtually admits, that it was not passion excited by a recent insult which impelled him to revenge, but hatred engendered during years of rivalry and stimulated by his late defeat.

Henry Clay defended him in these proceedings, and in reference to his connection with the case, Mr. Parton makes a characteristic display of the spirit in which his book is written, and of his unfitness for the ambitious task he has undertaken.

Upon this paragraph Mr. Parton makes the following extraordinary comments:"Mr.

Parton says these averments were true.

Mr. Parton says, that this "was an amusing instance of Burr's lawyerlike audacity."

A continuance of such practices led to a separation, and his wife afterwards made application for a divorce, upon a charge which Mr. Parton says is now known to have been false, but which we have reason to believe was true, and which was so disgusting that we cannot even hint at it.

Mr. Parton attacks Davis because that writer stated that Burr left his correspondence to be disposed of by him, and eulogizes his hero because he ordered that the letters should be burned.

We have no more space to expose Mr. Parton's blunders and sophistry.

As we have seen, Mr. Parton has described Aaron Burr as suited to many very incongruous conditions in life.

In our review of Parton's Life of Burr, published in the March number, the following passage occurs, as a quotation from that work:"Hamilton probably implanted a dislike for Burr in Washington's breast.

" We do not wonder that Mr. Parton should have been annoyed by so damaging a criticism of his book, but we can account for his forgetfulness only by supposing that he has been so long "immersed in the reading of that period" as to have arrived nearly at the drowning-point of insensibility.
