s than the men required. The public journals of the Commonwealth spoke with one voice. Party spirit was allayed, political differences forgotten. The past was buried with the past. The Boston Morning Post, the leading Democratic paper in New England, gave to the cause its strong support. It had sustained the nomination of John C. Breckinridge for President the preceding year; but it did so without intent or thought of following him into rebellion. On the morning of April 16, the Post pue from New York. I write for the purpose of posting you in regard to the operations of our neighboring States. The gentleman stated that Governor Sprague intended to have the Rhode-Island troops in Washington in advance of any other State in New England; and I have an ambition to see the Massachusetts men there as soon as Little Rhody's, —sooner, if possible. If they can get the Empire State, they intend to leave Providence Thursday, at twelve o'clock. The Empire State was chartered by G

Henceforth let no one dare accuse our Northern sky, our ster, who was afterwards commissioned colonel. The Twenty-fourth Regiment was known as the New-England Guards Regiment. It was recruited by Colonel Thomas G. Stevenson, at Camp Massasoit, Readvirs faithfully, John A. Andrew. This 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 tNew-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 th

On the seventh day of March, one hundred and twenty-five sick and wounded soldiers were pth God and human nature on their side,—the roads will swarm, if need be, with multitudes whom New England would pour out to obey your call. A copy of this letter was sent to the Governors of the New-England States, in the thought that mutual conference might be useful, and tend to unite and concentrate opinion in New England upon the subject to which it relates. On the 25th of May, receivNew England upon the subject to which it relates. On the 25th of May, received from Mr. Stanton the following telegrams:— Send all the troops forward that you can, immediately. Banks is completely routed. The enemy are, in large force, advancing on Harper's Ferry.
the same day in which the above was written, Governor Andrew drew up a form of a letter, addressed to President Lincoln, which was sent to the Governors of the New-England States, which, if approved, they were requested to sign. The letter received their sanction and their signatures, and was forwarded to the President of the Unisenting to your attention the inequality of the militia draft among the States, caused by withholding every allowance for men sent into the naval service. The New-England States have many thousands of volunteers in the national navy, belonging chiefly to the sea-coast counties, which are nevertheless to be subject to the same dra nor language could express the sentiments of emotion which befit the occasion and the hour. An arrangement was made, at this time, for the Governors of the New-England States to meet, as if accidentally, at the Commencement of Brown University, in Providence, on the 3d of September, for an hour of frank and uninterrupted conve

He thought that a vessel best adapted to the coast defences of Massachusetts and New England would be a fast cruiser stationed at Boston, and always prepared for service. Such a vessel, besides affording security to Boston, could proceed to any scene o attack would be Portland, the second Boston, and the third Newport, so far as the Northern States were concerned, and he should be glad if the Governors of the New-England States were informed of the danger which threatened them. The letter contained much information which was of interest at the time, and would have been invaluabd, and is now living at his home in Worcester County. His case was one of marked bravery. After his discharge, and on his return home, he staid a while at the New-England Rooms with Colonel Howe. On the sixteenth day of April, the Adjutant-General received a letter from James W. Hale, 76, Wall Street, New York, informing him tha
the Governor wrote to Mr. Green that he had no authority in the matter, and said,— My own inclination with regard to those of my friends who have fallen in this war is to have them rest on the fields where they fell. There is no other place of burial for them more congenial to their repose or to my feelings. But if the feelings of others are different, and if it would lessen the grief of a parent to have the remains of a son removed from the battle-field to the churchyard near his New-England home, I would be the last person to interpose any obstacle, not warranted in reason, to the satisfaction of her desire. In the month of February, Surgeon-General Dale was appointed by the Governor superintendent of the State agencies, so far as they related to the care of sick and wounded soldiers; and the agents were directed to correspond directly with him on those subjects, and to forward to him from time to time their accounts of disbursements, expenses, &c., to be audited and adj

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. Everetf the official duties which then pressed upon him; besides, if it were possible for him to visit New York during the month of December, he was under obligations, having been honored with frequent invitations, to speak at the anniversary of the New-England Society, on the 22d of December.
