onquer in the end. I distrust these guns at Fort Sumter. I do not believe that Abraham Lincoln means war. I do not believe in the madness of the Cabinet. Nothing but madness can provoke war with the Gulf States. My suspicion is this : that the Administration dares not compromise. It trembles before the five hundred thousand readers of the New-York Tribune. But there is a safe way to compromise. It is this: seem to provoke war. Cannonade the forts. What will be the first result? New-York commerce is pale with bankruptcy. The affrighted seaboard sees grass growing in its streets. It will start up every man whose livelihood hangs upon trade, intensifying him into a compromiser. Those guns fired at Fort Sumter are only to frighten the North into a compromise. If the Administration provokes bloodshed, it is a trick,—nothing else. It is the masterly cunning of the devil of compromise, the Secretary of State. He is not mad enough to let these States run into battle. He
was the origin of what was familiarly known as the New-England Rooms in New York, of which Colonel Howe had charge during the entire war. It became a home and hospital for the sick and wounded of New-England soldiers, both in going to, and returning from, the front. Other New-England States, following the lead of Massachusetts, appointed Colonel Howe their agent to take care of their soldiers. These rooms were supported, by voluntary subscriptions, by patriotic and liberal men in the city of New York. We shall have occasion to speak again of this admirable institution and Colonel Howe in a subsequent chapter. Charles Amory, of Boston, who, in the early part of the war, had tendered to the Governor his services, free of charge, in any position where he could be of use, was appointed master of ordnance, upon the discharge of General Stone, on the seventh day of October, 1861, with the rank of colonel. Colonel Amory performed the duties of the office until Jan. 9, 1863, when he r

In London, he purchased two thousand eight hundred, at seventy shillings each; he also purchased two hundred from the London Armory, at sixty-five shillings each. The New-York agent purchased about the same number, and contracted for about fifteen thousand more; he also contracted for five thousand second-hand rifles, used in the Crimea. The first lot of guns were ready to be sent over; but the Persia would not take
our Sixteenth and Twenty-ninth Regiments. Here, as elsewhere, I found our men in general good health, and earnestly desiring to advance on the enemy. Colonel Wyman is almost idolized by his regiment (the Sixteenth), which he has brought to a high state of discipline. Colonel Pierce had taken command of the Twenty-ninth a short time before my arrival. From all I can learn, his appointment seemed to give general satisfaction; and I believe he will be an efficient and popular officer. The New-York Ninety-ninth is stationed near Fortress Monroe, and commanded by my old friend, Colonel Wardrop. Colonel Wardrop commanded the Third Regiment of Massachusetts Mili tia, in the three months service. As nearly one-half of his regiment is composed of Massachusetts men, I regret he does not hold a Massachusetts commission. Captain Davis's company, to which I have before alluded, is stationed inside of the fortress, and is permanently attached to the garrison. We remained at Fortress Mon
hundred dollars a man, which, by an act of the Legislature, was, in great part, reimbursed to the towns from the State treasury, to the total amount of $2,300,921. Early in the month of July, a disgraceful and cruel riot broke out in the city of New York. It was instigated by persons who sympathized with the rebel cause, and wished it success. The pretext for the mob was opposition to the law of Congress instituting a draft of men to fill our regiments at the seat of war.

Mrs. Haggerty was the mother of Mrs. Shaw, whose residence was in the city of New York. Colonel Shaw was married only a few months before his death. On the thirty-first day of July, the Governor wrote to Major- General Dix, commanding the Department of the East, as follows:— I propose to station one of the companies o
st, the Governor wrote to Mr. Ellison, acknowledging the receipt of the letter and the draft, and said,— I have directed this amount to be divided equally between Colonel Frank E. Howe, the military State agent of Massachusetts, in the city of New York, and Lieutenant-Colonel Gardiner Tufts, our agent in Washington, whose especial duty it is to provide for the wants and comforts of our sick and wounded soldiers; gentlemen acting under my immediate supervision, and who, I know, will expend sures, nor the existence of dangers which render them needful. We are not aware that the plan of the incendiaries, if seriously entertained was ever carried into effect in New England, although there were abortive attempts to destroy the city of New York. On the 19th of October, Edward Everett, in Faneuil Hall, made one of his most brilliant Union speeches, which was published in pamphlet form: a copy of which Mr. Everett sent to Governor Andrew, who, on the 5th of November, acknowledged
e it. Such is an outline of our women's work for the soldiers during the war, under the organization of the New-England Women's Auxiliary Association. It is proper, also, that the services of the New-England Soldiers' Relief Association, the headquarters of which were in New-York City, and whose active and energetic leader was Colonel Frank E. Howe, should receive a passing notice at our hands. This association was organized April 9, 1862, by sons of New England resident in the city of New York, with the purpose of making arrangements to provide for proper attention to the sick and wounded soldiers as they should from time to time pass through New York on their return from the seat of war to their homes. The first meeting was held at the Fifth-avenue Hotel, March 31, 1862. Mr. William M. Evarts was chosen chairman, and subsequently president of the association, and Mr. William Bond and Dr. Maurice Perkins were chosen secretaries, and S. E. Low, Esq., treasurer. A committee
