rehensions of a contemplated invasion of Canada; and perhaps also his style of conversation with diplomats and other foreigners, often mere badinage, which was interpreted to have a hostile meaning not intended by him. But this distrust, whatever its cause, existed in fact; and there was danger that it might precipitate serious difficulty with foreign powers at a time when our burdens could not be increased without national disaster and ruin. N. W. Senior's letter to Sumner, Dec. 10, 1861; Reid's Life of W. E. Forster, vol. i. p. 344; Walpole's Life of Lord John Russell, vol. II. p. 342. According to Earl Russell, Lord Lyons reported that, incredible as it might appear, the American Secretary of State really hoped to overawe England and France by threatening language. Bright wrote to Sumner, Nov. 29, 1861: There is a feeling among our ministers that Mr. Seward is not so friendly in his transactions with them as they could wish. I hope this is not so. Weed, in his semi-official v

f Governor Andrew, pp. 111-114. Gurowski in his diary, vol. III. pp. 69, 91, 358, names also Boutwell, Trumbull, Wilson, and W. D. Kelley as supporting the principles of the party rather than Mr. Lincoln. Greeley thought Mr. Lincoln already beaten, and that another ticket was necessary to save the cause from utter overthrow, naming three generals from whom a choice might be made,—Grant, Sherman, and Butler. Among others active in the movement were Richard Smith, the veteran editor, and Whitelaw Reid, both of Cincinnati. A large number of letters of public men written at the time to John Austin Stevens, and published in the New York Sun, June 30, 1889, throw light on the movement. Republican conferences were held in the city of New York for the purpose of making a change: one at D. D.

reedmen's Bureau bill. There was the same hesitation among senators, all others holding back from comments on the message. Sumner, who had watched Mr. Johnson closely ever since he came to Washington to be inaugurated as Vice-President, was satisfied that he had taken an irrevocable step in antagonism to just measures of reconstruction—a conviction in which he proved wiser than his associates—and he felt that time should not be lost in making an appeal to the country. Two years later Whitelaw Reid (Agate), in a letter to the Cincinnati Gazette, dated March 3, 1868. referring to the scene in the Senate, recalled the profound surprise and even bitterness of feeling with which Sumner's remarks were received by senators who not long after led in hostile action against the President. According to the same writer, the sentiments of these senators prevailed at the time among Republican journals and leaders who were within the inner circles of the party. The day after the message ca

e of the dismissal being certain language of General Henderson, used by him in court, which the President deemed disrespectful to himself, though an offensive purpose was disavowed by the counsel. General Henderson has continued to hold a high place in his party, serving as president of the Republican national convention in 1884, and of the Pan-American Congress. An unfavorable view of Babcock is given by H. V. Boynton in the North American Review, October, 1876 (pp. 283-327), and by Whitelaw Reid in the New York Tribune, Feb. 17 and 23, 1876. (Compare the numbers of this journal for February 13. 14, 15, 16, 18, 21, 22, 24, 2.5, and 28.) These writers reflect on the President's support of Babcock, and his want of sympathy with the prosecution,—the Tribune saying, He is better fitted to rule an Asiatic kingdom than a free American people. Babcock was again indicted, April 16, 1876, in the District of Columbia, and this time on the charge of complicity with certain safe burglaries

fourteenth amendment and the suppression of the Ku-Klux clans. April 13. 1871 (Works, vol. XIV. pp. 277-282). The New York Evening Post, April 19, 1871, took exception to the centralizing drift of this speech. He renewed also the effort to bring forward his civil rights bill. March 9 and 17, 1871. Congressional Globe, pp. 21,144. His contention against the right of the Senate to hold in confinement recusant witnesses after final adjournment called out a grateful recognition from Whitelaw Reid and other journalists. May 18 and 27 (Works, vol. XIV. pp. 284-305). In this case Messrs. White and Ramsdell, having obtained and published a copy of the Treaty of Washington before its promulgation, refused to disclose by what means it was obtained. Other subjects to which the senator rave attention at this session were a bill for the relief of N. P. Trist, negotiator of the Treaty of Guadaloupe Hidalgo, which he succeeded in carrying, Feb. 3, 14 (Congressional Globe, pp. 923, 1212
