The majority voted propositions of compromise in the line of the Crittenden scheme; but Congress gave no heed to them. principles on which we fought and won this last great battle, and their triumph and our humiliation will be complete.

would turn round and look at as he passed by you. Sitting in his place in the Senate, leaning backwards in his chair, with his head stooping slightly over that great broad chest, and his hands resting upon his crossed legs, he looks in dress and attitude and air the very model of an English country gentleman. A child would ask him the time in the streets, and a woman would come to him unbidden for protection.

Two months later, March 1d this movement in the Senate, and avowed his connection with it.

But this does not appear in Welles's account of thinordinate vanity with which he dwelt upon his own career. Chase and Sumner were impressed with the exhibition of this quali of Saturday, April 22, just a week after he took his oath, Chase (the chief-justice) and Sumner had an interview with him, i his work. So do I. The newspapers are all at fault about Chase. His visit to the South was not political. It was, after hat he had not pushed him for the chief-justiceship against Chase. Seward said that he had presented his papers, and that Bl if Seward had been much in earnest he could have prevented Chase's nomination. President Lincoln selected Hale for the miss

ting against it were Brown, Dixon, Henderson, Lane of Kansas, Pomeroy, Stewart, Sumner, and Yates. Sprague of Rhode Island had intended to vote against the amendment, but informed Sumner the day before by note that he should support it. Chief-Justice Chase wrote Sumner, on the morning of the day when the vote was taken, a brief and confidential note, expressing the earnest hope that the amendment would not be defeated by his vote.

about a national name in any early writing or speech? There is a tradition that Columbia was spoken of, but I do not remember any debate on this point. Did not David Dudley Field propose a national name some eight or ten years ago? I am here in Boston, having just sold this old family house; and now comes the trouble and responsibility of dismantling it, abandoning some things, preserving others, packing papers and books. The task is painful, and I have no heart to write a lecture. Chase is on a tour, which has an electioneering color. Stanton is still with Hooper on the southern shore of Massachusetts; they were to be in Nantucket to-day. Sumner had only once (in 1855) visited the West, and though often urged to do so had never been before a Western audience. In the autumn of 1867—partly to impress his favorite idea on the country, and partly to meet his increased expenses as a householder—he accepted invitations to deliver a lecture at different points in the Western

ncy in political discussions. The note came into the possession of Ben Perley Poore, and was sold in 1888 at an auction in Boston to a New York dealer in autographs. The Senate began its session, March 5, for the trial of the impeachment, Chief-Justice Chase presiding; and the vote was taken May 11, resulting in an acquittal,--thirty-five declaring the President guilty, and eighteen declaring him not guilty, which was not the two-thirds required. Among the nays were six Republicans, includinthe impeachment proceedings, insured their success in the national election of 1868. The only hope of the Democrats was in presenting a candidate of undoubted loyalty in the Civil War,—which at one time was thought likely in the person of Chief-Justice Chase, now parted from his old associates; but that hope they threw away when they nominated Horatio Seymour. One with Sumner's ideas of what a statesman should be would not, if the choice had been left solely with him, have selected for Pres

crutiny of cross-examination, to determine the position of statesmen, and their opportunity to serve their country. A truly great man has no ears for them. After Chase had left Lincoln's Cabinet, in 1864, reports were carried to the President of what the late secretary had said of him; but he turned away from the tale-bearers, saying he could not as President take such things into account; and spite of all he heard, he made Chase chief-justice. The measure on which Sumner had put his foot was not to rise again, but in the contest it had brought on he was to be worsted. The Northern masses as well as their leaders took then, as they take now, but a langake of the country. I send you a copy of my late speech at St. Louis. It was badly reported and was not revised; I did not say what I am reported as saying about Chase. Some of the mistakes in the report you can correct from the context. Yours very truly, O. P. Morton.
