perty on the high seas, in the Territories, and wherever its Constitutional authority might extend. The committee was divided upon these propositions, sixteen free States advocating the Douglas doctrine, and fifteen slave States, together with Oregon and California, dissenting. While the consultation was going on, three gentlemen entered the committee-room and announced themselves a committee from a caucus of the friends of Judge Douglas, with a resolution which his friends desired to be rep My proposition was voted down in the committee by seventeen States to sixteen. The Douglas propositions were voted down by seventeen States, and the other propositions were carried by seventeen States,--fifteen slave States and two free States, Oregon and California. What became of the resolutions in the convention I have already stated. I have also given the report adopted at Baltimore by the Breckenridge convention, and the only change made in the resolutions of the Breckenridge conventi
me for not having a sleeping-car at his disposal in which myself and officers could be accommodated. As it was, I tested early the discomforts of campaigning by sitting up in the cars all night. We arrived in the morning at New York in good health, and the regiment accepted the invitation of Mr. Stetson to breakfast with him at the Astor House. Myself and staff accepted a like invitation from Mr. Paran Stevens, the landlord of the Fifth Avenue Hotel.

Yet while no blame could seem to attach to me, a senseless cry went out against me, and it almost cost me my confirmation in the Senate. Of course every Democrat voted against me, and so did some of the Republicans, for various reasons. I suppose I should have failed of confirmation if Colonel Baker, then senator from Oregon, who had been detailed to do duty with me at Fortress Monroe, had not been in his seat and explained the senselessness of the clamor. But one senator from my own State voted for me, the other, the senior senator, voting against me because of my difference with Governor Andrew on the slave question. In the meantime neither horses nor artillery came. I did, however, get a very valuable reinforcement of a California regiment and a half, at the head of which was Colonel Baker, who had had s
