As f iniaueipmans ve may ue excuseu for correcting some misapprehensions as to Mr. Taylor's memorable flrst journey throngh Europe. Doubtless he received nid and encouragement in niany ways after he had proved what manner of mau he was. But he givos himself ■vhnt ought to bo aeeepted as the time versión. He started on that journey with L14.0 in money, and of this lie got $50 from Joseph E. Chandler, then proprietor and editor of the United States tímette, and $50 more from Samuel D. Patterson, editor of the Saturdaij Evenoiy Post, both of Philadelphia. These two sent him further remittances while on his jonniey. The most of the remaining $40 carne from the profits of a little volume of his poems, republished from the pages of Graham's Pliiladelphia Magazine, which volume, he says, was " charitably Boticed by the Philadelphia press." If the eircumstance is worthy of mention now, it is right that it should be put as Mr. Taylor gratefully stated it himself. - Philadelphia Lui '{o:
