Secretary Seward's letter letter of Colonel Lee charter of transports John M. Forbes, Esq. meeting in Faneuil Hall meeting in Cambridge speech of Wendell Phillips, Esq., at New Bedford remarks the President calls for troops the eve of battle. To write the part taken by Massachusetts in the civil war which began in April, 1861, and continued until the capture, by General Grant, of Lee and his army in Virginia, and the surrender of Johnston and his forces to General Sherman in North Carolina, in 1865, requires patient research, a mind not distracted by other duties, and a purpose to speak truthfully of men and of events. Massachusetts bore a prominent part in this war, from the beginning to the end; not only in furnishing soldiers for the army, sailors for the navy, and financial aid to the Government, but in advancing ideas, which, though scouted at in the early months of the war, were afterwards accepted by the nation, before the war could be brought to a successful end.

On the same day, the Governor wrote a long letter to the Secretary of War in regard to raising a colored brigade in North Carolina, which could be easily done if the proper man should be selected to organize and command it. It needs a man of soul f wheelbarrow. His own undertaking to raise a colored regiment in Massachusetts was begun with talking with you about North Carolina. General Foster, in command in that State, regarded favorably the formation of colored troops. The Governor recommend that you refuse to commission Colonel Wilde as a brigadier-general until he shall have raised a colored brigade in North Carolina. The Governor warmly disclaims any such intention. He proposed the name of Colonel Wilde in obedience to the sug that the term of service began from the time that the regiment was completed and organized. This answer was sent to North Carolina; but it was not satisfactory to the officer who made the inquiry, who wrote again to Mr. Mitchell; this letter was al

ew caused to be issued General Order No. 27, which appointed Major Joseph M. Day, of Barnstable, Provost-Marshal of the Commonwealth, with the rank of colonel, to whose supervision was committed the recruitment of men in the disloyal States. It also provided that there should be a recruiting agent for Massachusetts in the Department of North-eastern Virginia, whose headquarters should be at Washington; one for South-eastern Virginia, with headquarters at or near Fortress Monroe; one for North Carolina, headquarters at Newbern; one for South Carolina and Florida, headquarters at Hilton Head; one for Mississippi, Georgia, and Alabama, headquarters at Nashville, Tenn. These agents were to be styled assistant provost-marshals of Massachusetts; they were to have the sole charge of recruiting men in their several departments, and were to report the names of the recruits to Colonel Day.

This result has promptly succeeded upon the extraordinary and brilliant exploits of the army commanded by Major-General Sherman, whose march through the States of Georgia, South Carolina, and far into the State of North Carolina, while it swept, by its resistless energy, the cities of Savannah, Columbia, Charleston, and their surrounding territories. . . .To these have been added the recent capture of Fort Fisher, on the Cape Clear River, and the occupation of Wilmington by a force detailed for that purpose by Lieutenant-General Grant, and immediately led by Brigadier-General Terry in an enterprise most brilliant, both in action and result.
