e was aware of the schemes which were planned in Baltimore to assassinate Mr. Lincoln, when on his way to Washington to be inaugurated, and which were thwarted by the prudence, vigilance, and accurate knowledge of one man. The true history of Mr. Lincoln's perilous journey to Washington in 1861, and the way he escaped death, have never been made public until now. The narrative was written by Samuel M. Felton, of Philadelphia, President of the Philadelphia and Baltimore Railroad Company, in 1862, at the request of Mr. Sibley, Librarian of Harvard University; but it was not completed until lately, when it was sent to me, with other valuable material, by Mr. Felton. It has a direct bearing upon events which transpired in forwarding the Sixth Massachusetts Regiment to Washington, and which are now to be narrated. Mr. Felton is a native of Massachusetts, and a brother of the late President of Harvard University. He was born in West Newbury, Essex County, Mass., July 17, 1809, and gra
the three months men, he was mustered out of service, and remained without command until he was commissioned colonel of the Twenty-ninth by Governor Andrew, Dec. 13, 1861. He lost his right arm in the battle before Richmond at White Oak Swamp, in 1862. The seven original companies of this command were among the first three years volunteers raised in Massachusetts, that were mustered into the United-States service. While these infantry regiments were being organized and forwarded to the frof the Tenth, June 21, 1861. He served gallantly through the war, and was appointed brigadier-general of volunteers by President Lincoln, for brave and meritorious services in the field. He was wounded in the seven days fight before Richmond, in 1862, but remained in service to the end of the war. He is a son of the late Hon. George N. Briggs, formerly Governor of Massachusetts, and he is now Auditor of State, having been elected three times to that responsible position. June 14.—Governor t
the close of the year 1861 and the beginning of 1862, Massachusetts had filled every demand made upoent, and an organized system. In the summer of 1862, when the sick and wounded were returned in grequainted with their condition. During the year 1862, which was one of much disaster and suffering, hem also. During the early part of the year 1862, three allotment commissioners were appointed b retreat of General McClellan, in the summer of 1862, from before Richmond, when it was sent forwardding fifty years. In the first six months of 1862, four thousand five hundred and eighty-seven mered into the service in the first six months of 1862, upwards of three thousand volunteers were recreven thousand men were enlisted during the year 1862, assigned to regiments in the field, and forwarusetts regiments and batteries in the spring of 1862, and previous to the commencement of the campaie soil of Virginia. So they were the first, in 1862, to land in North Carolina, and carry the flag,
of which can be found in the Annual Report of the Adjutant-General for the year 1862, but need not be enlarged upon in these pages. From the beginning to the end r draws the attention of the President to chapter 201 of the Acts of Congress of 1862, which gives him power for the appointment of such a board. The suggestion of t the republic. The great number of men which Massachusetts was called upon in 1862 to furnish for the military service of the country rendered this year one of thenumber of three months men, 3,736,—making a total of 69,736 men. During the year 1862, the number of men who entered the navy in Massachusetts was 5,960, which, addede your pardon. The changes and additions to the Governor's staff in the year 1862 were as follows:— John Quincy Adams, of Quincy, was appointed aide-de-camp, wing pages bring the history of Massachusetts in the war to the close of the year 1862, at which time Massachusetts was represented by her brave men in nearly every fi
position of Massachusetts in the war, but also a variety of topics relating to the social, physical, financial, agricultural, and educational condition of the State. The receipts in the treasury from the ordinary sources of revenue, for the year 1862, were $2,947,732.48, of which $1,763,108.62 were raised by direct taxation upon the property of the Commonwealth. The disbursements for the year amounted to $1,683, 390.93, of which $435,251.77, was for State aid to the families of soldiers. Theess up that time. Mr. Crowninshield returned home in August, 1861. Mr. McFarland was left in England to superintend the execution of uncompleted contracts, and to inspect the arms as manufactured. He remained on this business until the spring of 1862. For his entire services Mr. McFarland was paid the sum of $3,527.96. In the final settlement of accounts, the Governor says, the claim of two and a half per cent on all the disbursements was made by Mr. Crowninshield for compensation for himself
attached to it, and made the Fourth Regiment Massachusetts Cavalry. The Fourteenth Regiment of Infantry was changed in 1862 to heavy artillery. The Forty-first Regiment of Infantry, in the Department of the Gulf, was changed from infantry to c at $1,220,000, after making allowance for all the guns we might expect to receive from the United States during the years 1862 and 1863. Of the thirty-two-pounders and smaller guns, the United States were supposed to possess a sufficient supply. ing account of this money. He said that the money properly belonged to the Fifteenth Regiment; that, in the winter of 1861-62, he sent to Captain Studley, in Richmond, two hundred dollars for the benefit of the prisoners there, belonging to the Fift, agreed that they should be. Accordingly, from the sworn statements of the various municipalities, made to this office in 1862, and from the descriptive rolls of men enlisted after those returns were made, a table was made out by Major Rogers, Assis
e letter, in the Governor's own handwriting, were these words:— Will the Adjutant-General please report whether, by the rule adopted by the War Office, this man comes within the category of those entitled to discharge under our order No. 28, 1862. On the 24th of September, the Adjutant-General made the following report to the Governor:— In answer to your Excellency's inquiries, I have the honor to report, that the case of James O. Newhall does not come within the rule adopted by the War Department in regard to General Order No. 28, 1862. Only recruits who went into old regiments between the 21st of July and 31st of December, 1862, are entitled to be mustered out when the terms of service of their regiments expire. The statements made by Mr. Newhall I know to be true. He had five sons in the army, and they have been good soldiers. I think, therefore, that he presents a strong claim for a favorable consideration of his application. Perhaps the Secretary of War woul
hould receive the honor of brevet brigadier-general. He is, said the Governor, a man of mature age, highly respected as a citizen and a gentleman, who left a large family and many important interests at home in the dark hours of the summer of 1862, to help restore the fortunes of the Union cause. Colonel Lincoln was not a politician, but a patriot; and he belongs to a family of patriots, who, whether right or wrong on any other question, are always true to their country. His zeal, fidelitusetts was the medium through whom donations were received from citizens, and disbursed as his judgment dictated, for the benefit of disabled soldiers, and the families of those who had fallen in battle. The amount received by him during the year 1862 was $504, of which Governor Andrew contributed $250; Miss A. Morton, of Andover, $202; and the Joy-street Baptist Church, $45. During the year 1863, $260 were added to this fund, the whole of which was contributed by Governor Andrew. In 1864, th
