speech in New - York,much the best portrait, by the way, in circulation of him during the campaign,--was the means of his election. That it helped largely to this end I do not doubt. The effect of such influences, though silent, is powerful. Fremont once said to me, that the villanous wood-cut published by the New York Tribune, the next day after his nomination, lost him twenty-five votes in one township, to his certain knowledge. On one of the last days of February, I called, with my friend W-, of New York, upon Mr. Lovejoy, who was supposed to be convalescent. He thought himself nearly well again, and was in fine spirits. Indications of an organized movement to bring forward Fremont, as an opposition candidate to Mr. Lincoln, had recently appeared. Mr. Lovejoy was very severe upon it; he said, Any attempt to divide the party at such a time was criminal in the last degree. I remember observing that many of the extreme anti-slavery men appeared to distrust the President.

m myself. I have not fully made up my mind how I should behave when minie-balls were whistling, and those great oblong shells shrieking in my ear. I might run away. The interview at which this conversation took place, occurred just after General Fremont had declined to run against him for the presidency. The magnificent Bible which the negroes of Baltimore had just presented to him lay upon the table, and while examining it, Colonel Deming recited the somewhat remarkable passage from the Cdent immediately challenged his friend to find any such passage in his Bible. After it was pointed out to him, and he was satisfied of its genuineness, he asked the Congressman if he remembered the text which his friends had recently applied to Fremont, and instantly turned to a verse in the first of Samuel, put on his spectacles, and read in his slow, peculiar, and waggish tone: And every one that was in distress, and every one that was in debt, and every one that was discontented, gathered

Lxiii. The letter of General Fremont withdrawing from the presidential canvass of 1864, after having accepted the nomina it cannot be denied that Mr. Lincoln ever bore toward General Fremont the sincerest good will, though for reasons perhaps nolize the public expectation. Some months subsequent to Fremont's removal from the Western Department, one of his personalness, said: I have been thinking a great deal lately about Fremont; and I want to ask you, as an old friend of his, what is tto you frankly, that a large class of people feel that General Fremont has been badly treated, and nothing would give more saouri? asked the President. I have that confidence in General Fremont's patriotism, that I venture to promise for him in adv thoughtfully, I have had it on my mind for some time that Fremont should be given a chance to redeem himself. The great hue result, close upon this interview, was the appointment of Fremont to the Mountain Department of Western Virginia. While M

bosom of the mountain. But occasionally the noon-day sun darts through it a vertical ray which penetrates to its very bottom, and shows every configuration of the varied interior. I felt at that moment that a ray had darted down to the bottom of Abraham Lincoln's heart, and that I could see the whole. It seemed to me as beautiful as that emerald pool, and as pure. I have never forgotten that glimpse. When the strange revocation came of the most rational and reasonable proclamation of Fremont,-- The slaves of Rebels shall be set free, --I remembered that hearty Amen, and stifled my rising apprehensions. I remembered it in those dark days when McClellan, Nero-like, was fiddling on James River, and Pope was being routed before Washington, and the report came that a prominent Cabinet Minister had boasted that he had succeeded in preventing the issue of the Emancipation Proclamation; I said: Abraham Lincoln will prove true yet. And he has! God bless him! he has. Slow, if you plea
