Massachusetts in the year 1837. Some opposition was made to the order, but it was adopted. Jan. 28. In the House.—Mr. Pierce, of Dorchester, introduced resolutions to sustain the Union; and that all attempts to overthrow it, with the expectation of reconstructing it anew, were vain and illusory. Referred to the Committee on Federal Relations. Jan. 29. In Senate.—A message was received from the Governor, transmitting certain resolutions passed by the States of Pennsylvania and Tennessee; also the Ordinance of Secession of the State of Georgia, adopted by a convention of the people of that State, and forwarded to Governor Andrew by George W. Crawford, president of that convention. After some debate, it was voted to print the message of Governor Andrew and the resolutions from the two States, but not to further notice the Secession Ordinance. A debate then arose upon passing the bill for Massachusetts to indorse the notes of the United States to the amount of our indeb
em are in an insignificant minority. On the tenth day of March, the Governor wrote to General Hamilton, of Texas, then at Washington, expressing his regrets that unavoidable public duties would prevent his meeting him at Washington, that he might stand by him in his earnest efforts to save Texas. I would do so, he says, if it was only for the satisfaction of trying, and, if you fail, of failing with you. I pray you to give my hearty and sympathetic regards to Governor Johnson, of Tennessee, and assure him of the interest with which we of Massachusetts watch for the welfare of his Union friends, and for his own personal success in his noble career. Major Burt visited Washington on his return from Texas, at the request of the Governor, who gave him a letter to Secretary Stanton, dated Feb. 3, in which he urges at considerable length the importance of invading Texas. His plan was to have Matagorda Bay as a base, and, with an army of 25,000 men, march upon Austin, through
balance to the credit of the State. The act of Congress, passed July 4, allowing naval credits, also made it lawful for the executive of any of the loyal States to send recruiting agents into any of the States in rebellion, except Arkansas, Tennessee, and Louisiana, to recruit volunteers, who should be credited to the State procuring the enlistment. Governor Andrew had, long before the law passed, pressed upon the War Department the justice and importance of such a measure. He argued thaton our standards. The year 1864 was the presidential year. A Republican National Convention was held in the city of Baltimore, at which Abraham Lincoln was nominated for re-election for President of the United States, and Andrew Johnson, of Tennessee, was nominated for Vice-President. The convention was composed of the leading men of the party,—men who had, from the beginning of the Rebellion, never faltered or hesitated in their determination to suppress the Rebellion, and to make no comp
f of his staff. The day was a common New-England wintry day; the ground was covered with snow to the depth of about six inches. Early in the morning of the 22d, the veteran officers and men of our gallant commands assembled in Boston, and formed in military order. All were represented: and when placed in column of march with their old uniforms, each command carrying its tattered flags, some of which had waved over fifty battle-fields, in the valleys of Virginia, and on the mountains of Tennessee; had followed the fortunes of Butler and Banks in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas; and had been unfurled where Burnside and Sherman had led in the Carolinas and in Georgia,—a sight was presented which awakened the most patriotic and sublime thoughts in the heart of every loyal person. As the procession moved through the different streets, business was suspended, the sidewalks were crowded with spectators, banners were displayed from almost every house, and everywhere cheers went up of
