of entering New York before night. Arnold had furnished him with papers revealing the condition of the highland stronghold. At Tarrytown, 27 miles from the city, he was stopped (Sept. 23) and searched by three young militiamen, who, finding those papers concealed under the feet of Andre in his boot, took him to the nearest American post. The commander (Colonel Jameson) did not seem to comprehend the matter, and unwisely allowed Andre (who bore a pass from Arnold in which he was called John Anderson ) to send a letter to Arnold telling him of his detention. Washington returned from Hartford sooner than he expected. He rode over from Fishkill towards Arnold's quarters early in the morning. Two of his military family (Hamilton and Lafayette) went forward to breakfast with Arnold, while Washington tarried to inspect a battery. While they were at breakfast Andre‘s letter was handed to Arnold. With perfect self-possession he asked to be excused, went to his wife's room, bade her far

pay his debts. In short, in the United States hereafter, he who has uncontrovertible property in plenty but little cash on hand — as, for example, he who is land poor — may yet be solvent and entitled to the time to realize and pay his creditors. At first blush this seems broadly equitable, but what will be the result in actual practice? Perhaps, had it been in force, the author of Waverley, with his vast genius as his property, would not have been insolvent, and that other Scotchman, Anderson by name, who possessed, yet would not surrender, the secret formula for a popular nostrum, might have proved it overworth his debts, and escaped the penalties of the law. On the other hand, into what dangerous controversies will it lead us! Hitherto the proof of insolvency has been simple and easy. Now it never can be. The expert on values has a new field open to him, as creditors and debtors, not to speak of lawyers and courts, may quickly learn. In practice, the law will, therefore,

March 25, 1869 In United States history the Constitution provides that the privilege of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when, in cases of rebellion or invasion, the public safety may require it ; but does not specify what department of the government may suspend it.

he battle of Bull Run, and fought gallantly on the Virginia peninsula, until wounded at the battle of Fair Oaks, or Seven Pines (1862), when he was succeeded by Lee. He afterwards opposed Grant and Sherman in the Mississippi Valley. He was in command during the Atlanta campaign in 1864 until July, when he was superseded by General Hood. When Johnston heard of Sherman's raid, and perceived that Polk could not resist him, he sent two divisions of Hardee's corps, under Generals Stewart and Anderson, to assist Polk. Grant, in command at Chattanooga (February, 1864), sent General Palmer with a force to counteract this movement. Palmer moved with his corps directly upon Dalton (Feb. 22), Joseph Eccleston Johnston. where Johnston was encamped. The Confederates were constantly pushed back and there was almost continual heavy skirmishing.

rom Charleston Harbor. The President refused; a disruption of the cabinet followed. Floyd fled; and Anderson received (Dec. 31) from Secretary of War Holt —a Kentuckian like himself—an assurance of his approval of what he had done. Earlier than this words of approval had reached Anderson. From the legislature of Nebraska, 2,000 miles away, a telegram said to him, A happy New year! Other greetings from the outside world came speedily; and a poet in a parody on the old Scotch song of John Anderson, my Jo, made Miss Columbia sing: Bob Anderson, my beau, Bob, when we were first aquent, You were in Mex-i-co, Bob, because by order sent; But now you are in Sumter, Bob, because you chose to go; And blessings on you anyhow, Bob Anderson, my beau! Bob Anderson, my beau, Bob, I really don't know whether I ought to like you so, Bob, considering that feather; I don't like standing armies, Bob, as very well you know, But I love a man that dares to act, Bob Anderson, my beau.
