He elaborated it with great care, and hence was acquired that remarkable production—the last work of combined study and genius— his rich, clear, correct, harmonious and weighty style of prose. And it was always perspicuous; you could look through the crystal water of the style down to the golden sands of the thought. In 1851 the claims of both Crittenden and Dixon to a seat in the United States Senate were being urged with zeal and warmth by their respective friends. The rivalry of two such champions created quite a breach in the Whig party of the State.

A calculation of the amount saved to the commerce of the United States by shorantic, and suggested that a sub-marine telegraphic cable uniting the two continents might be laid there. He urged the Secretary of the Navy to have soundings made there under his direction to ascertain the truth of his theory. This was done. In 1851-52 three small vessels were placed at his disposal, and Lieutenant Berryman's soundings fully demonstrated the existence of the telegraphic plateau.
