hief instrument — the aster-key with which to unlock the secrets of the intellectual world. And this explains why henceforth, even to the end of his career, the study of language was his chief occupation and delight. Before passing to an account of the new life upon which young Dana was about to enter, it is worthy of note that during the Patriot War, which took place in Canada about this time, Buffalo, as a frontier town, became greatly excited. Sympathy ran high with the patriots; General Scott was sent to the Niagara border to insure the observance of strict neutrality, and to prevent an outbreak which the capture and burning of the Caroline by the Canadians came near precipitating. The militia was called out, but, barring a few parades and marches through the streets of Buffalo, it took no part in active operations. Young Dana, as a member of the City Guard, which he had joined along with a number of his companions when the excitement began to rise, participated in its exer

e Tribune. In October, 1852, that journal, resenting the intimation of its Democratic contemporaries, declared: General Scott is not an abolition candidate. and no action is to be expected from him looking to the overthrow of slavery. He is praised Seward for favoring a subsidy for the Collins line of transatlantic steamers, and when the election was over and Scott defeated, it stood by the antislavery Senator as against the coalition of hostile elements for his overthrow. It adds: ence of Dana's criticism. This is well illustrated by a letter from Dana having reference to Pike's Campaign life of General Scott, and to the assignment of Bayard Taylor as secretary to Commodore Perry in the Japanese expedition. Having taken liber, when it began to become apparent that all the confident anticipations with which the campaign for the election of General Scott had been pushed were to end in disappointment, he wrote Pike again: Here's a letter for you which I hope will b

While it was unselfishly devoting its time, its talents, and its revenues to the antislavery cause, it is not to be disguised that its vehemence and radicalism had begun to estrange its conservative friends. The overwhelming defeat of General Scott for the presidency, and the division of the Whig party on sectional lines, had destroyed the party as an effective national organization. The Tribune, it will be remembered, had always been the leading Whig journal of the country, but its de

wever, we keep good spirits and good digestion, and for constitutional ride a horse for two hours daily. . .. The Household Poetry is not published yet, but there is hope for it within a few months. The Cyclopaedia sells pretty well, notwithstanding. Of volume I. five thousand have gone already, and the tide rises still.... Send on a biography of Gustave Dore. On August 6, 1861, Dana, in a letter to his friend Huntington, commented upon the defeat at Bull Run as an awful blow for which Scott was mainly responsible. It had sickened Greeley, and kept him from the office two weeks. It had been made the occasion of his extraordinary card placing the Tribune in leading-strings. It had produced a crisis in all kinds of business as well as in the affairs of the government. It brought the war home to every interest, private as well as public. It cut down the income of the Tribune, and curtailed the sale of books. Ruin seemed to be staring every one in the face, editors and writers

h he had opened without the enemy believing it could be done, has occupied Grand Gulf, taken Port Hudson, and, effecting a junction with the forces of Banks, has returned up the river to threaten Jackson, and compel the enemy to come out of Vicksburg and fight him on ground of his own choosing. Of course this scheme may miscarry in whole or in parts, but as yet the chances all favor its execution, which is now just ready to begin. It may be that the future will justify you, Greeley, General Scott, and John Van Buren in your idea of letting the wayward sisters go. But I judge that it will be long before the body of the American people will adopt that notion. The strongest sentiment of this people is that for the preservation of the territorial and political integrity of the nation at all costs, and no matter how long it takes. In other words, they prefer to keep up the existing war a little longer, rather than to make arrangements for indefinite wars hereafter, and for other di
