ne to one in favor of the Union. No convention was therefore called and secession was defeated for the second time in North Carolina. But all the efforts towards a peaceful solution of the problem were failures; Sumpter was fired on and President Lincoln issued his call for 75,000 troops. The share of North Carolina was two regiments. The reply of Governor Ellis to this call for troops, addressed to Hon. Simon Cameron, Secretary of War, on the 15th of April, marked him as a man of promptand Chicago; suffered the unjust accusation of sending infected clothing into the union lines from Canada, and came perilously near having the distinction conferred upon him of being made the scape goat to bear the infamy of the assassination of Lincoln. Two sons of the University served as the head of the Confederate Department of Justice. Thomas Bragg was the second and George Davis the fourth Attorney General.

federate military organization in Texas was followed by an universal feeling of the most intense anxiety and suspense, which increased each day. An outburst of wrath throughout the North against the fallen South had followed the assassination of Lincoln. Some of the leading newspapers accused the Confederate authorities with having been implicated in the plot. The inflamed state of the Northern mind rendered the preposterous accusation easy of belief, while the bitter feeling engendered by thut rarely committed by negroes, and the general experience of that time justifies the assertion that in Texas at least they were trustworthy and faithful servants. On June 19th General Granger issued his order of emancipation in pursuance of Lincoln's proclamation. This was expected by most of the people, although a few clung to the theory that the right of slave ownership was guaranteed by the Constitution, and would be respected at least where proof of loyalty could be made.

Pierce, which he had declined.—E. A. A.], but I did not accept, wishing to take my wife's advice on the subject. On consultation with her I determined not to return to Washington Territory, believing firmly that the days of the Union were already numbered, and not wishing to be absent from the land of my birth when her hour of trial came. I resigned the position tendered me by Mr. Buchanan and devoted myself exclusively to planting at Casa Bianca. In 1860, when it became certain that Mr. Lincoln was elected President of the United States, the people of Florida, feeling alarmed for the safety of their rights and institutions, began to hold primary meetings preparatory to a general convention of the State. In December, 1860, I was elected a delegate from Jefferson county to a general convention of the State, which assembled at Tallahassee the 1st of January, 1861, and passed the ordinance of secession on the 10th day of the same month, which received my hearty approval.

Mr. Lincoln was then associated in the practice of the law with young PickettMr. Lincoln was then associated in the practice of the law with young Pickett's uncle, Mr. Andrew Johnston, who was later of the firm of Johnston, Boulware and Williams, of Richmond. Mr. Johnston, who has been dead for a number of years, was a great and good man, and was highly esteemed by the President, who, it is said, dUnion. After giving her friend the information sought, Mrs. Pickett goes on to say: I have before me a letter from Mr. Lincoln, dated February 22d, Springfield, Ill., which, though a private letter, bespeaks his superlative greatness, his accurarrible massacre.

urnside to Buckner, adjuring him to take no steps until he could be seen personally. I have just come from the President, telegraphed Burnside, indicating that Mr. Lincoln was willing to do something to hold such a man to the Union cause. What that something was, is not certainly known, but it is said to have been a commission aers was the safety of Kentucky herself, and immunity from the devastation of war. George B. McClellan, one of Buckner's West Point chums, had been made by President Lincoln a major-general in the regular army, and placed in command of the Department of the Ohio, which was soon enlarged to include Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, andf the details of his conversation with Buckner. McClellan's correspondence at this period makes it probable that he was called to book by General Scott or President Lincoln about this matter, though no letter or telegram on the subject from the Washington end of the line is found. But on June 26th, after he had entered upon his

that was in office previous to the outbreak of the rebellion. This was a curious mistake, in view of the fact that ex-Senator Harlan, of Iowa, is very much alive, that he was not only prominent as a senator and a member of the first Cabinet of Lincoln, but also that he was an eager candidate for the nomination for Governor of Iowa last year, and that only a short time before the death of Jones he had made a stirring speech to the old soldiers on Memorial Day. Less curious, perhaps, yet stiof the living. Thomas Lanier Clingman, of North Carolina, almost as prolific a coiner of speeches as Senator Stewart or Senator Call, remained in the Senate until the close of the extra session of the Senate which followed the inauguration of Lincoln. The body adjourned on March 28, 1861, and this one lone senator from a seceding State, said good-bye to his associates, and passed away only to meet his Northern friends on the field of battle.

My object was to secure for the citizens otates, and under the Constitution of the United States. I understood from Mr. Lincoln, if this condition be fulfilled, that no attempt would be made to establish or sustain any other authority. My conversation with President Lincoln upon the terms of settlement was answered in writing—that is, he left with me a written mems may return after they had concluded their business, without interruption. Mr. Lincoln, in his memorandum, referred to what would be his action under the confiscattant Secretary of War.

tional rocks asunder on sectional lines and issues. The South was fighting against the stars in their courses. But, standing on this sacred spot, I should be false to the memory of the dead if I did not remind you that he, the man we all adore, battled for the constitutional right to dissolve the Union, not for revolution, not for slavery—that the war was fought upon a legal, not a moral, issue, and it is significant that slavery is not mentioned, either in the Confederate inaugural or in Lincoln's Gettysburg address. It is a pleasant reflection to-day that the feelings which human nature cannot repress in the sad hour of defeat have found the gentle and sure medicine of time. A new generation has risen underneath the healing wings of peace that are strangers to the discord of their fathers, and the gray-haired veterans of Gettysburg and Chickamauga, conscious of their rectitude of purpose and lofty patriotism, now yield loyal allegiance to the government, not having disowned th
