asonable sentiments were uttered by Franklin Pierce, Caleb Cushing, Fernando Wood, Horatio Seymour, and Chancellor Walworth; Greeley's American Conflict, vol. I. pp. 388-393, 512. Cushing made, November 26, an inflammatory speech at Newburyport, which affirmed the right of secession, and denied the right of the government to coerce the seceders. (Boston Post, November 27, 28, 29.) His letter, November 19. justifying the complaints of the seceders is printed in the Boston Advertiser, November 21. Henry Wilson replied to him at length in a trenchant letter, which reviewed his earlier and better record. New York Tribune, December 26. and Daniel E. Sickles, in his speech in the House, Dec. 10, 1860, set up the city of New York as a barrier against the march of national troops for the maintenance of the Union. Journals of great influence, notably the New York Herald and Albany Argus, stimulated the conspiracy with harangues which justified the seceders and denied to the government

not in Congress, journalists and other leaders of public opinion, Sumner's cause found little support. Governor Morton of Indiana denounced it before the people, and took issue directly with the senator. Julian's Political Recollections, pp. 260-268. George W. Julian at once replied to Morton in the Indiana True Republican, and also in speeches. Governor Andrew of Massachusetts felt assured of the President's honesty of purpose, and advised co-operation with him. Letter to Sumner, November 21. At the Union Club in Boston, November 7, the Governor and Henry Ward Beecher had a spirited encounter with Sumner when Governor Parsons of Alabama was present to solicit a loan for that State. (Boston Commonwealth, November 25.) Governor Andrew, as his valedictory message in January, 1866, shows, was not in entire accord with Republican methods of reconstruction. The editors of the New York Evening Post, Bryant and Godwin, usually radical in their views, contended against compulsory act

upon them. We have a new French minister, Monsieur Berthemy, who is discreet and clever. As he is still young, I doubt not he will have a brilliant career. Mr. Seward is singularly well, and completely restored from injuries and wounds of all kinds, talking as much as ever. Let me thank you sincerely for your kind words on my marriage, and remember me, if you please, to the Prince de Joinville. Congress was in session from March 4 to the 80th, from July 3 to the 20th, and from November 21 to the 30th; and the Senate held a special session from April 1 to the 20th. The resolution for adjourning from March 20 to July 3 limited the power of senators not making a quorum to voting an adjournment,—a limitation which Sumner did not think constitutional. July 3, 1867; Works, vol. XI. pp. 365-367. Sumner pressed for a continuous or almost continuous session, with the view of checking the President and defeating his plans; but others did not see the necessity for the constant p

the lecture. In 1870 he was still enforcing the truths which he announced twenty-five years before, in his celebrated oration of July 4, 1845. On his route he enjoyed the hospitality of friends,—of Judge Harris at Albany, Gerrit Smith at Peterborough, and Senator Fenton at Jamestown. While at a hotel in Chicago, during a call from Mr. Arnold, biographer of Lincoln, a newspaper reporter, without disclosing his purpose, happened to be present, and the next day gave to a journal of the city what purported to be an account of Sumner's conversation on the President and on Motley. Chicago Republican, November 19; New York Herald, November 21; Boston Journal, December 5. The senator read it with great regret, and repudiated it as a whole,—calling it afterwards in the Senate a stolen, surreptitious, and false report, . . . with a mixture of truth, of falsehood, and of exaggeration, producing in the main the effect of falsehood.

ble evidence. Stated so positively and in such a quarter, it was likely to obtain general credence; and but for a fortunate suggestion that the Senate records should be searched and made known, this calumny might have remained forever attached to an eminent senator. Mr. Fish's letter to the Boston Transcript adroitly gave only dates of references to the committee: and the omission of dates of reporting suggested to Mr. Sumner's friends a further inquiry as to the omitted dates. On November 21 the injunction of secrecy was removed from the Senate proceedings, on the motion of Senator Hoar of Massachusetts, and Mr. Fish's repeated charge found to be untrue. Mr. Sumner's chairmanship ended March 3, 1871. It was found that he reported the Mexican protocol (referred Dec. 8, 1869) on Jan. 11, 1870; the Darien Canal treaty with Colombia (referred April 1, 1870), on July 13, 1870; two treaties with Peru, and one each with Guatemala and Nicaragua (all four referred Dec. 8, 1870), on
