Doc. 47.-President King's address to the Graduating class of Columbia college, June 26, 1861. Young gentlemen :--I salute you as trained athletes, just entering upon the strifes of life. If we have at all succeeded with you in our efforts at education, you have learned how to use your faculties. It will now devolve upon you to make their use subservient to the highest aims and the largest good. So only shall you prove yourselves worthy of your alma mater--worthy of your glorious country. Life is real — life is earnest, to all and at all times; but at the particular juncture at which it is your fortune to be called to act, it is more than usually real and earnest — and it is this exceptional condition of affairs that seems to demand from me at this time and on this, our most solemn academic exercises, a plain and frank expression of opinion, as to matters concerning which it is criminal not to have an opinion, and cowardly not to express it when fitting occasion offers.

, as a boy, I found nothing essentially unlike types known to me at home. Especially easy was it to identify his village monarch, Ready Money Jack, with the broad shoulders and yeomanlike bearing of old Emery Willard, reputed the strongest man in the village, who kept the wood-yard just across Brighton Bridge. In my memoirs of Margaret Fuller Ossoli I have attempted to sketch the cultivated women who lived in Cambridge and were a controlling power. Mrs. Farrar, Mrs. Norton, Mrs. Howe, Mrs. King, and others,—of whom Miss Fuller herself was the representative in the next generation,—and whom I was accustomed to seeing treated with respect by educated men, although these ladies themselves had never passed through college. Yet Radcliffe was anticipated in a small way by the advantages already held out to studious girls through the college professors; and my own elder sister studied Latin, French, Italian, German, and geometry with teachers thus provided. Some of these instructors

e some of the provisions in the substitute bills, as they as well as the original, all embraced features of freeing slaves, he should vote against them all. Mr. King, of New York, proposed to amend the amendment by making it apply to all who had rebelled against the Government. Mr. Carlile, of Virginia, said he hoped somade. He had more hopes of the restoration of the Union since he had heard the wise and temperate remarks of the gentleman from Vermont. Mr. Sherman thought Mr. King's amendment worse than the original bill, effecting not only every man, but the women and children of the seceded States. Mr. Trumbull briefly defended the s taking only the property of those whose persons could not be reached, but would be content with Mr. Sherman's proposition, if the Senate should prefer it. Mr. King's amendment was then rejected — years 7, nays 82. The question recurred on Mr. Sherman's amendment, and it was adopted — yeas 20, have 11, as follows: Y
