territory and in population. With the exception of Maine, it lies the farthest eastward of all the States in the Union. Its capital is four hundred and fifty miles east of Washington, and is separated from it by the States of Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland. It contains seven thousand eight hundred square miles of land, river, lakes, and sea. In 1860, it had a population of 1,231,066, engaged in farming, manufacturing, fishing, and mercJanuary, the anniversary of General Jackson's victory at New Orleans. Colonel Wardrop, of New Bedford, Third Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Militia, was sent to Governor Fairbanks, of Vermont; and other messengers were sent to Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Maine, for this purpose. One of these messengers was the gentleman who afterwards became Governor Andrew's private military secretary,—Colonel Albert G. Browne, of Salem,—and who served him during the entire war; and who,
ble and characteristic munificence, and of the honor I feel in being made the instrument of its transmission. Also, a similar letter to Mr. Mason, transmitting a check of Mrs. Hannah F. Lee for one thousand dollars. To Governor Buckingham, of Connecticut, We cannot furnish you with muskets, as we have exhausted our store. Will you co-operate with us, and have some bought by our agent in England? To Dr. William J. Dale, Express to Mrs. Tyler, and other citizens of Baltimore, my thanks for therying to find the utmost known in this city; but there is no reliable intelligence not known to you. New York has sent up to this time five thousand four hundred troops, and by Tuesday next will send four thousand more. Three regiments from Connecticut are nearly ready,—two thousand four hundred. New Jersey claims to have four regiments nearly ready,—three thousand two hundred. Notwithstanding all this, it seems to be the strong desire of every one here, that more men should go from Massach
to strip off over the heads of men, and they are very safe to handle or drop. The charge fits so loosely, expanding after ignition of the powder, that a child can ram the shot home. Major Cobb can fire one hundred rounds from his battery in six minutes. Every thing—horses, wagons, and all—is ready for your call. I have the honor to be sir, your most respectful and obedient servant, Horace Binney Sargent, Aide-de-camp. June 10.—The Governor writes to Governor Buckingham, of Connecticut, I have your letter of the 7th, inclosing duplicate letter of credit for £ 10,000 on George Peabody, which you state will be sent to Mr. Crowninshield. That gentleman has already received orders to execute your orders; and I trust that he will be able to do so. On the same day, the Governor gave written instructions to Colonel Ritchie, of his personal staff, to visit our regiments at the front, and confer with General Scott as regards future movements, and to report. The Governor wri

His Excellency Governor Buckingham, of Connecticut, contributed personally one hundred dollars to the association, expressing his warm appreciation for the thoughtful and considerate kindness in making provisionse memorable battle-fields upon which they had won such immortal renown. This does not include the regiments which passed through the city from the States of Connecticut and Rhode Island; the care, reception, and entertainment of which devolved upon their energetic and able military agent, Colonel John H. Almy, whose entire time
