Many other instances of equally atrocious cruelty might be enumerated, but your committee feel compelled to refrain from giving here more of the heart-sickening details, and refer to the statements contained in the voluminous testimony herewith submitted. --Report of Messrs. Wade and Gooch, a sub-committee of the Joint Committee of Congress on the Conduct and Expenditures of the War. This committee visited Fort Pillow two weeks after the massacre, and made a thorough investigation. They took the testimony of a large number of eye-witnesses and sufferers, all of which was submitted to Congress. General S. D. Lee, Forrest's chief, after denying the truth of the report of the committee, undertook to show, by the most feeble special pleading, that the massacre was justifiable,

of January, 1864, and, as we have observed, was adopted on the 8th of April following. The President's recommendation was acted upon, and the subject was taken up for consideration in the House on the 6th of January, 1865. On the 31st of the same month, it was adopted by a vote of one hundred and nineteen against fifty-six. The following was the vote: yeas.--Maine--Blair, Perham, Pike, Rice; New Hampshire--Patterson, Rollins; Massachusetts--Alley, Ames, Baldwin, Boutwell, Dawes, Elliott, Gooch, Hooper, Rice, W. D.

Mr. Sumner rejoined; and Mr. Davis's substitute, providing for consular relations only with the republics aforesaid, was voted down-Yeas 8; Nays 31--and then the bill passed: Yeas 32; Nays 7. On reaching the House, it was referred to its Committee on Fereign Affairs; which Committee was discharged June 2. from its further consideration, on motion of Mr. Gooch, of Mass., who ably and temperately advocated its passage. Mr. Cox, of Olio, replied, à la Davis; and, after further debate by Messrs. Fessenden, of Maine, Eliot, of Mass., McKnight and Kelley, of Pa., and Maynard, of Tenn., in favor, and Messrs. Diddle, of Pa., and Crittenden, of Ky., in opposition, it was passed — Yeas 86; Nays 37--and, being signed June 5. by the President, became the law of the land. Previous to the triumph of Emancipation in the Federal District, there was no

Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation. The House now concurred with the Senate, by the following vote: Yeas--[Democrats in Italics.] Maine--Blaine, Perham, Pike, Rice. New Hampshire--Patterson, Rollins.

h duties in the office of the Secretary of War, belonging to that department, as shall be prescribed by the Secretary of War, or as may be required by law; the offices of these additional assistant secretaries to continue for one year. On motion of Mr. Hale, the amendment was so amended as to provide that they should be appointed by and with the advice and consent of the Senate. The amendment as amended was adopted as a substitute for the bill, and passed. In the House, on the same day, Mr. Gooch, of Massachusetts, moved that the bill be put on its passage, and demanded the previous question, which was ordered — yeas, seventy; nays, thirty-five. On motion of Mr. Holman, of Indiana, the yeas and nays were taken on its passage, and being taken, resulted — yeas, ninety-one; nays, thirty. So the bill passed, and was approved by the President, on the twenty-second of January, 1862. No. Xix.--The Resolution in relation to the Allotment Certificates of Pay to Persons held as Prisoner
ansomed slaves. This bill became a law on the 16th of April. Just previous to its signature by the president, Mr. Sumner said to him, Who is the largest slaveholder in the country? Who is he? replied Mr. Lincoln. You yourself, sir, returned the other, holding, as you do, all in this District. On the 23d of the month last named, he spoke eloquently on his bill for the recognition of the independence of Hayti and Liberia, which was carried through the house mainly by the efforts of Mr. Gooch, and was signed by Mr. Lincoln June 6, 1862. This law, Mr. Andrew wrote to Mr. Sumner, will be a jewel in your crown. The Haytian people subsequently tendered an elegant medal to Mr. Sumner, which he, in accordance with views previously expressed, declined to receive. It was therefore, in 1871, deposited in the library of the State House of Massachusetts. On the 24th of April Mr. Sumner reported a bill, on which he made effective remarks, for the final suppression of the slave-trade, wh

ic positions of the Republican party. They included two-thirds of the Republican senators, but a smaller proportion of the Republican members of the House, where there was much shifting of position. New York Times, January 23; February 5. Of this type in the Senate were Sumner, Wilson, Trumbull, Wade, and Preston King; and in the House, Thaddeus Stevens, John Hickman, G. A. Grow, Roscoe Conkling, and Owen Lovejoy; and among Massachusetts members, Alley, Buffinton, Burlingame, Eliot, and Gooch. At such a period the steady courage of Sumner was of inestimable service in saving the country from the disaster of compromise and surrender. The intimacy between Sumner and Adams, which began in 1845, and had been very close during the political conflicts of fifteen years, now came to an end. There was a scene in which Adams resented Sumner's protest against his support of compromise, the details of which are not known. It was Mrs. Adams's desire that the public should not take note o

eased with a characterization such as this: At church ye pray to the devil—your good works damn you and carry you to hell. All your preachers preach false doctrines, and they and all who follow them are going to hell. Is it to be wondered that a religious people thus abused felt aggrieved? Were these ancestors of ours besotted bigots? We have still, it is said, Unrest of Christendom. The Presbyterian Synod, in session in Philadelphia May 27, 1745, deemed it proper in an address to Governor Gooch, of Virginia, to disclaim countenance of such provocations, and ascribed them to schismatics who had been excluded the Synod in 1741. Foote, pages 137-139. Happily there have been modifications in Christian exemplification throughout our land since our colonial era. I have no sectarian interest in this discussion. New Englanders are among my kindest and most cherished friends. In their regard for literature we might profitably emulate them. The loving and gentle Bishop Meade of
