On the 9th of September, General Sherman writes from New York to the Governor, The public interest requires that the remaining troops for jor-General Butler to raise six new regiments in New England, and to arm, uniform, and equip them. The first intelligence Governor Andrew had that such authority had been given, was by a telegram dated Washington, Sept. 11, and jointly signed, A. Lincoln, President, and Simon Cameron, Secretary of War, stating that General Butler proposes raising in New England six regiments, to be recruited and commanded by himself, and to go on special service: we shall be glad if you, as Governor of Massachu

See the President and Fox, to whom I wrote same date. Nobody answered. Boston is very earnest and solicitous. Can we do any thing by visiting Washington? This telegram was also signed by Mr. Lincoln, Mayor of Boston. On the twentieth day of March, the Governor wrote to Edward S. Tobey and Samuel H.

A Republican National Convention was held in the city of Baltimore, at which Abraham Lincoln was nominated for re-election for President of the United States, and Andrew Johnson, of Tennessee, was nominated for Vice-President. The convention was composed of the leading men of the party,—men who had, from the beginning of the Rebell H. Sidney Everett, of Boston, assistant adjutant-general, with the rank of major, Dec. 30. The year 1864 was one of the most important of the war.
