uty. There has been some controversy in military circles as to which company can claim the honor of first reaching Boston. I can answer, that the first were the three companies of the Eighth Regiment belonging to Marblehead, commanded by Captains Martin, Phillips, and Boardman. I had been at the State House all night; and, early in the morning, rode to the Arsenal at Cambridge, to ascertain whether the orders from headquarters, to send in arms, ammunition, overcoats, and equipments, had bears companies and regiments, which were then being raised in the State; several of whom came back, when the war was over, with distinguished fame, and with generals' stars upon their shoulders. Among these we name Hinks and Devens and Briggs and Martin and Devereux and McCartney. Others rose to high rank, who never came back, but who fell in distant battle-fields, by the side of their men, and beneath the shadow of the flag they carried, which symbolized their cause and the nation's. Of these

Sella Martin, and Robert Morris and others, to strike out the word white in the militia laws, be referred to the next General Couword white be stricken from the militia laws, was laid on the table.

chapter, and from it made several extracts. On the 26th of July, Major-General Fitz-John Porter wrote to the Governor a letter, from Harrison's Landing, Va., which was promulgated in special orders July 30, in which he said,— It affords me great gratification to express to you my admiration for the noble conduct of the troops from your State, under my command, in the late actions before Richmond. No troops could have behaved better than did the Ninth and Twenty-second Regiments and Martin's Battery (the Third), and portions of Allen's (the Fifth), or done more to add to our success. Their thinned ranks tell of their trials; the brave men lost, their heroic dead, and gallant conduct, and devotion to their country. Their discipline was never excelled; and now, with undaunted hearts, they await, with confidence of success, the order to advance. I hope you will be able to send on men to fill their depleted ranks, even in parties of ten, as fast as recruited. A few men joining
e service than a captain. The Governor exerted his utmost power to have this wrong righted, but in vain. The only answer which Secretary Stanton gave was, that mistakes had been made in the beginning of the war, which he did not wish to keep up. We will not say that the Secretary was altogether to blame; but the wrong done could have been righted by Congress fixing a brevet rank, which would have carried command and pay with it, and not have permitted officers of the skill and bravery of Martin, McCartney, Nims, and others we could name, to serve in positions which properly belonged to brigadier-generals, and to perform the duties of those positions with pre-eminent merit, while only holding in reality the commissions of captains, and allowed only the pay and allowances of captains. It is true that these gentlemen were named in official bulletins in words of praise for gallant and efficient services in the field, and, at the end of the war, they were brevetted brigadier-generals;

read the clause of the Constitution: The Governor, with consent of the Council, may remove them [judicial officers] upon the address of both houses of the Legislature. The Constitutional Convention, which met in 1820, appointed a committee to take this clause into consideration. That committee consisted of Messrs. Story of Salem (Judge Story, of the Supreme Court of the United States), John Phillips of Boston (Judge of the Common Pleas Court of Massachusetts, and President of the Senate), Martin of Dorchester, Cummings of Salem (Judge of the Common Pleas), Levi Lincoln of Worcester (afterwards Judge of our Supreme Court and Governor of the Commonwealth), Andrews of Newburyport, Holmes of Rochester, Hills of Pittsfield, Austin of Charlestown (High Sheriff of Middlesex County), Leland of Roxbury (afterwards Judge of Probate for Norfolk County), Kent of West Springfield, Shaw of Boston (present Chief Justice of the Commonwealth), Marston of Barnstable, Austin of Boston (since Attorney-

ch gentlemen take possession of a meeting, and the fitness of those gentlemen to take possession of a meeting. On the 3d of December, certain gentlemen--Rev. J. Sella Martin, James Redpath, Mr. Eldridge, Mr. O'Connor, Mr. Le Barnes-hired the Temple for a Convention to assemble at their request. The circular which they issued aonvention, uniformly leave it the right to organize itself, and meet it, if anywhere, on the passage of its resolutions. In conformity with this custom, the Rev. J. Sella Martin took the floor as temporary Chairman. He appointed a committee to appoint officers. That committee reported a list, with Mr. Sanborn of Concord as Chairman. Mr. Martin announced him, as he had an entire, well-recognized right to do, for the Chairman of that meeting. But suppose the Convention chose to insist on its strict right, and to organize itself without regard to its callers. Then it was perfectly in order for any member to address the temporary chair, and make a moti

d scores of others. Of Mr. Garrison's English anti-slavery friends there were the Ashursts, Stansfelds, Shaens, Taylors, Thompsons, and Chessons; and Richard D. Webb came over from Ireland for the occasion. America was represented by the U. S. Consul at London (Mr. Morse), and by a number of anti-slavery friends who were happily in London—Mrs. Chapman's daughters and the Rev. William Henry Channing being among these, while Miss Sarah Remond, Bishop Payne of the African M. E. Church, Rev. J. Sella Martin, and William and Ellen Craft well represented the enfranchised race. The American Minister sent the following letter, which was read by Mr. Chesson: 54 Portland place, June 25, 1867. To F. W. Chesson. Sir: Permit me to express my great gratification in receiving W. L. G. Breakfast, p. 15. the honor of an invitation to be present on the interesting occasion so complimentary to my countryman, Mr. Garrison.

The John Brown meeting in Boston,its breaking up. The breaking up of a meeting in Boston, on the 3rd inst., held in memory of John Brown, has been noticed in our telegraphic dispatches. A negro named J. Sella Martin was chosen chairman of the meeting, and symptoms of a row immediately followed. The Express says: A call for a committee of one hundred to preserve order was received with hisses. Three cheers were given for Gov. Packer of Pennsylvania, and his letter to the Commitor. Mr. Sanborn appealed to the audience to keep order, and was replied to with hisses and groans, interspersed with cheers for the Constitution. The Chief of Police was present with a force, but made only a temporary lull of the storm. Martin commenced a speech, which was broken up with the noise, on which he laid all the blame of existing political troubles upon the conservatism of the cities, and States and Wall streets. The committee came in with an organization, of which F. B.
