he was not guilty of the high crimes and misdemeanors with which he was charged, but because his removal for differing with his party on a novel question of constitutional procedure would have set a precedent by which the independence of the chief executive might have been destroyed, while the character of the government itself would have been so changed as to become more like the revolutionary governments of Latin America than that established by Washington, Hamilton, and Marshall. See, Dewitt, Impeachment and Trial of Andrew Johnson. From this time forth it may be truthfully said that Dana was the Sun, and the Sun Dana. He was the sole arbiter of its policy, and it was his constant practice to supervise every editorial contribution that came in while he was on duty. The editorial page was absolutely his, whether he wrote a line of it or not, and he gave it the characteristic compactness of form and directness of statement which were ever afterwards its distinguishing featur

ers and liberal Democrats. As it was, the Legislature was lost by about ten majority, and with it the State offices and senator, although Horace Mann as candidate for governor received nine thousand more votes than were given to Hale for President. The Maine Law defeated the coalition candidates for the Legislature in the large towns; and that measure, many times since a fatal stumbling-block, would have wrecked the coalition spite of even greater efforts to save it. Banks, a Democrat, and DeWitt, a Free Soiler, were chosen to Congress; while Weston and Hood, one Free Soiler and one Democrat, each came within two hundred votes of an election, Wilson within one hundred, and Adams fell behind his Whig competitor only four hundred. Sumner regretted deeply the defeat of Adams and Wilson, who lost their election at the second trial. He wrote to E. L. Pierce, Dec. 9, 1852: I cannot too strongly urge the importance of placing Mr. Adams and Mr. Wilson in Congress. All our candidates wou

his colleague voted against Collamer's amendmet, which maintained a higher duty on wool, and both voted for the bill (Hunter's) on its passage. The House disagreeing, a bill of the same general character, with unimportant modifications, was reported by a committee of conference. The committee, equally divided between the parties and the sections, consisted on the part of the Senate of Hunter, Douglas, and Seward, and on the part of the House of Campbell of Ohio, Letcher of Virginia, and DeWitt of Massachusetts. There was no contest on its adoption, there being only eight votes against it; and Sumner's vote not being necessary, he was not present when the bill, known as the tariff of 1857, passed March 2. Theodore Parker wrote, Feb. 27, 1857— God be thanked you are in your place once more! There has not been an antislavery speech made in the Congress, unless by Giddings, since you were carried out of it,—not one. Now that you bear yourself back again, I hope to hear a bl

nant-colonel. The Second regiment was mustered in about the middle of September under Colonel Summers and Lieutenant-Colonel Duryea. The Third Maryland was recruited by foreigners in Baltimore City and western Maryland and was commanded by Colonel DeWitt. The Fourth regiment, commanded by Colonel Sudburgh, was composed of Germans. The First and Second Maryland artillery companies were commanded by Captains Hampton and Thomson, and the First Maryland cavalry by Lieutenant-Colonel Miller. service at Second Manassas. Maryland is not entitled to merit for this gallant command. Its colonel, Duryea, was not connected by blood or in any way with the State, and most of the enlisted men were foreigners. The Third regiment, under Colonel DeWitt, was hotly engaged at Cedar Run, and lost heavily. Major Kennedy and over one hundred men were killed and wounded. They also lost over thirty-three per cent of the command at Sharpsburg, killed and wounded. The First regiment of cavalry,

Crockett, of DeWitt; Company I, Drew county, Capt James Jackson, of Monticello; Company K, Arkansas county, Captain Quertermous, of DeWitt. The regiment was immediately ordered to DeWitt. The regiment was immediately ordered to Richmond, and on the road attracted much attention, being known to have among its captains a grandson of the immortal Davy Crockett, and Capt. Donelson McGregor, who was reared near the Hermitage, and was grand-nephew of the beloved wife of Old Hickory. The regiment was stationed at Aquia creek, near Fredericksburg, in the brigadnized at Devall's Bluff on White river, by the election of Col. D. W. Carroll, of Pine Bluff; Lieut.-Col. John L.
