ned in camp in Washington while the others crossed the Long Bridge over the Potomac, and bivouacked one mile from the bridge. The next morning being Sunday, they formed in picturesque groups, and their chaplain preached to them. That afternoon they returned to their camp in Washington. They call this Our campaign in Virginia, That part of Virginia was not rebel territory. For a few weeks in the summer of 1862 and 1863 they did garrison duty in Baltimore. They returned to New York in July, 1863, and did not leave here again during the war. Shortly after the war they caused to be erected in Central Park in this city, an expensive monument On the pedestal is inscribed In honor of fifty-eight members of the Seventh Regiment who died in defence of the Union.

And with all that under the performances of her administrative officers, Massachusetts had the disgrace of a draft, intensified by a draft riot, which had to be put down by force of arms. A draft, under the law of Congress, was carried into effect in Massachusetts in the months of June and July, 1863, and was entirely an abortive affair as far as men were concerned. There were enrolled, between the ages of twenty and forty-five, 164,178. Then there were names of persons drawn from the box, numbering 32,079. Of these 6,690 were held to service, and of this number only 743 joined the service; 2,325 procured substitutes. Twenty-two thousand three hundred and forty-three were exempted, and 3,044 failed to report, that is, they left for Canada or elsewhere, and 3,623 paid commutation.

They contained matter sufficiently alarming, but, as is always the case, exaggerated. In substance they stated that there was an organization of troops which was to be placed under command of Fitz John Porter; that there was to be inaugurated in New York a far more widely extended and far better organized riot than the draft riot in July, 1863; that the whole vote of the city of New York was to be deposited for McClellan at the election to be held just one week from that date; that the Republicans were to be driven from the polls; that there were several thousand rebels in New York who were to aid in the movement; and that Brig.-Gen. John A. Green, who was known to be the confidential friend of the governor, was to be present, bringing some forces from the interior of the State to take part in the movement. The fact of such a
