le and most excellent gentleman. For several years I never failed to enjoy his very agreeable hospitality whenever I was in New York. I know no house that was more attractive; his wife was a fascinating lady. And Lord Jeffrey is gone too, and Mrs. Jeffrey! I hope the Empsons are well. Are they still at Haylebury, and does he conduct the Review? Remember me kindly to your father and sisters. I recall with inexpressible interest the long avenue and the groves of Lanfire. To Lieber, June 25:— I have just read your paper on Pardons, which seems to me admirably done. It is a piece of pure science. Your criticism on the existing state of things is perfect. I am not so confident as to your scheme of remedy. The first volume of the new work on The science of politics, By P. E. Dove, published anonymously in the first edition. where you are noticed, will be published at once in Boston. It seems to me calculated to influence many minds. No previous English work on the s

in the hall indicated that the present generation was about to leave it. His motion was carried unanimously, and the Society adjourned sine die. Boston Atlas, June 25. The lateness of the hour, the physical weariness of all present, and the skilful resort to a motion to lay on the table, which was a surprise to the supporters of positive action, prevented the adoption of Mr. Lothrop's substitute. Boston Atlas, June 25. One of the audience writes as follows:— I was out of town when the meetings began, and on returning found everybody in wild excitement about a subject to which they had never before paid the slightest attention. I think all tunwearied and persistent. The failure of the Society to come to any definite result after the prolonged discussion caused public disappointment, Boston Atlas, June 25. which led to a meeting of the managers on July 10, when it was voted to call a meeting of the Society for the purpose of voting upon Mr. Lothrop's proposition, w

on; but they soon came to his support, making their decision as a choice of evils. The former lost his re-election to Congress, being defeated by Charles Allen; and the latter, who explained the reasons for his decision at considerable length in a letter to Sumner, passed two years later out of political life, being defeated as a candidate for governor by the same union of Free Soilers and Democrats which elected Sumner to the Senate. Horace Greeley, editor of the Tribune, wrote to Sumner June 25, declining to take definite action for the present, and expressing the fear that the secession of earnest Free Soil men from the old parties would leave the pro-slavery men in control, and increase the number of members of Congress who would not insist on the prohibition of slavery. While kindly to the dissenters, he wrote that he had decided not to identify himself with them, and added: I do not judge that this course is the best for you or for others; act as your own conscience and judgm

ing malevolence towards the friends of freedom, and the treachery and apostasy of men, small as well as great, are in themselves most disheartening. Still, I know the cause is right, and as sure as God is God must prevail. To George Sumner, June 25— The recent outrageous expedition against Cuba The second attempt of Lopez. has dishonored us before the world. . . . my own impression is that it [Clay's Compromise] will pass through the Senate; and this is founded on two things: first,, of course, will be longer; but there our ultimate triumph is none the less certain. The young man whose bosom does not yet stir with sympathy for a noble cause may be swayed by a selfish ambition to keep on the side of freedom. To Lieber, June 25:— We have before us in Massachusetts a very bitter period of political strife, to last till the Presidential election. After that the Free Soil cause will be completely and without let or hindrance in the ascendant. I know public sentime

mner, by letter June 20, read in the Senate June 23 (Congressional Globe, p. 1438), in reply to Dr. Boyle's, read by Butler June 16 (p. 1414), disclaimed that the doctor's services were dispensed with on account of his testimony or his offer to become Brooks's bail. Boyle, though no question was made as to his professional fidelity, was in sympathy with the Southern party and with Brooks, whose bail he had offered to be. It was also stated that he was Edmundson's landlord. (New York Times, June 25.) Pennington charged him with being evasive, indirect, and wanting in frankness and impartiality as a witness. (Globe App. p. 889; see Buffinton's testimony, Globe, p. 1363.) His selection of Butler as a medium for his letter, which he sent to be read in the Senate, shows his relations with that senator.
