uffered criticism on various grounds, and among others through his support of the course of Senator Fessenden, of Maine, in the impeachment of President Johnson. In 1876, General Chamberlain was elected President of Bowdoin College. In 1878, he was appointed by the President of the United States to represent the educational interests of the country as a commissioner at the World's Exposition in Paris, and for this service he received a medal of honor from the Government of France. In 1883, he resigned the presidency of Bowdoin College, but continued for two years longer his lectures on public law. During this time, he put to one side urgent invitations to the presidency of three other colleges of high standing. In 1885, finding that the long strain of work and wounds demanded a change of occupation, he went to Florida as president of a railroad construction company. In 1900, General Chamberlain was appointed by President McKinley Surveyor of Customs at the port of Portland,
for I always speak of you together, the term of political general. If there be such an expression, I can not find it now, nor can I recall its use. The only place wherein the word politics occurs is in the pages which I have referred to, and wherein I explain my own motive and reason for nominating Howard over you and Blair for the vacant post. My reason may have been bad, nevertheless it was the reason which decided me then and, as a man of honor, I was bound to record it. At this time, 1883, Thomas being dead, I can not say more than is in the text, viz.: that he took strong ground against you, and I was naturally strongly influenced by his outspoken opinion. Still, I will not throw off on him, but will state to you frankly that I then believed that the advice I gave Mr. Lincoln was the best practicable. General Howard had been with me up to Knoxville, and had displayed a zeal and ability which then elicited my hearty approbation, and, as I trusted in a measure to skilful mane
al preservation of a government that guarantees to its people the protection of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. In executing their deeds of local charity the Grand Army of the Republic found they must call to their assistance the good and loyal women. There were innumerable cases where only a woman could minister to the unfortunate; hence almost every post has auxiliaries in the persons of noble women who do as much as the members of the posts for the helpless and indigent. In 1883, at the national encampment of the Grand Army, held at Denver, Colorado, such glorious women as Florence Barker, of Massachusetts; Kate B. Sherwood, of Ohio; Annie Wittenmyer, of Pennsylvania; Mrs. L. A. Turner, of Massachusetts; Clara Barton; and a score of others organized the Woman's Relief Corps as auxiliary to the Grand Army of the Republic. Since the time of the organization of this corps, the parent society has had to look well to its honors, as these noble women have raised and dist

say to him, Well, now, general, take good care of yourself, we shall need you in 1888, he would say to me privately, It is all right. I am entirely satisfied, and it will be no matter which way things go in 1888. In the fall, at the solicitation of friends, he accepted a number of invitations to different cities. We came to Washington for the assembling of Congress on the first of December, but the general had taken a cold and was not at all well, suffering acutely from rheumatism. In 1883 he had been to Hot Springs, Arkansas, and had received great benefit there. I was very anxious to have him go to Hot Springs at once, but he felt he had been away from his duties in the Senate long enough and was extremely desirous of securing the passage of his bill for the location of the military post north of Chicago now known as Fort Sheridan. He said he would wait until the Christmas holidays before going to the Springs. I wrote to Doctor Garnett, his physician there, and begged him

n before mentioned, and commanded a good view of the country between us and the James River. This farm-house I ordered to be heavily occupied by the reserves of the pickets. On reporting my weak and exposed condition to General Butler, I was informed that three regiments were at the Half-way House which could be used as a reserve. During the day I had instructed Generals Brooks and Weitzel to gather telegraph wire from the turnpike road and stretch it among the stumps in their front. In 1883 General Butler claimed the credit for the use of the wire, and intimated that in Heckman's case his order with reference to it was not carried out. The fact is, there was not wire enough to go round. Brooks and one brigade of Weitzel were so near the enemy that I was fearful they might be run over. Heckman was not in such danger of a sudden rush, and so the wire was used in the direct front in contact with the enemy.--W. F. S. I left the farm-house after midnight, and returned to my headqua

If they reach home you demoralize him, and get the worth of your money.

The naval forces, after waiting until 11 o'clock A. M., got under way and steamed up the river. Arriving at the island chute, the line of battle was formed, the Essex on the extreme right, the Cincinnati, with Flag-officer Foote on board, on our left, the Carondelet on her left, and the

f the cavalry battles yet told. III.* personal history of Ulysses S. Grant. By Albert D. Richardson. (Hartford, Conn., 1868: American Publishing Company.) Full of anecdote and interest. On the whole, better than either its contemporaries or its followers. IV. Military history of Ulysses S. Grant. By Adam Badeau. (New York, 1868-81: D. Appleton & Co.) A pompous third-rate production, and untrustworthy. V. The Virginia campaign of ‘64 and ‘65. By Andrew A. Humphreys. (New York, 1883: Charles Scribner's Sons.) The admirable temper and ability of this book place it far above any military narrative thus far written in this country. VI. * personal Memoirs of U. S Grant. Two volumes. (New York, 1885-86: Charles L. Webster & Co.; Century Company, 1895.) This great book has been already spoken of in the text. With it should be read the Memoirs of Sherman and Sheridan. They make a trilogy that will outlast any criticism. VII. Grant in peace. By Adam Badeau. (Hartford<
