y the fact that a revolution had broken out in France, which ended in the expulsion of Louis Philipp on the drift of public affairs, especially in France. He formed definite and not always favorable fullness, as bearing upon an acute question in France which had not yet made its appearance in his oer from Paris relating mostly to the policy of France towards the surrounding countries.

Here, as in France, Dana, speaking their language fluently, and mon of Louis Napoleon as the first president of France under the new constitution over Cavaignac the s throughout Europe, discussed the election in France, the inauguration of the new president, the per majority of Louis Napoleon, he declared that France has voted like a drunken man, and that many fen the crown of his uncle.

ber of the right kind of socialists. But Dana, although discouraged, did not give up his interest in the subject. In an editorial on the approaching election in France, he wrote: New York Tribune, April 24, 1849. Let no man be frightened by the terms social and Socialist as adopted by the Democratic journals of France. France. They are Socialists not as propagandists of any societary theory or system, but as believers together, that the condition of the toiling, suffering millions ought to be, may be ameliorated, and that it is the pressing duty of governments to affect such amelioration. He followed this by an analysis of Proudhon's Political Ecoeme blessing of mankind then, as it always remained, to him, and this was as true in the case of an individual as in the case of a race or nation. He looked upon France at that time as the sheet-anchor of the liberties of the world, and regarded the issues of the war in Hungary as affecting the interests of all mankind. With dee

t, calls for a more decided activity on our side. If you can do anything in the emergency to reconcile our friends to the system of defence we are making, you will do a great good. I think ridicule, not pure argument, the most safe and effective way of disposing of it. To talk of the danger of war from it is just what the movers want us to do. The most effective, the only effective point of Mr. Toombs's reply to me was that when he perverted a remark of mine into a deprecation of war with France and England. It would be killed in an hour if we of the opposition could avow ourselves in favor of such a war. Faithfully yours, William H. Seward. In view of the fact that Seward remained to the date of the inauguration the acknowledged leader of the Free-soilers and Republicans in Congress, and afterwards, as Lincoln's most conspicuous rival for the presidency, was selected to fill the high office of Secretary of State, it may be fairly assumed that he had not changed his attitu

remarkable despatch, which Dana withheld till he could send a correspondent to inquire if the secretary meant to repudiate the Tribune. The secretary had declared that he could not suffer undue merit to be ascribed to his official actions, that the glory of our recent victories in the West belonged to the gallant officers and soldiers who had won them, and that no share of it belonged to him; that he heard such phrases as organizing victory with apprehension, that they commenced with infidel France in the Italian campaign and ended with Waterloo ; that we might well rejoice at our recent victories because they were won as such victories were always won by boldly pursuing and striking the foe-and finally, that the true organization of victory and military combination to end this war was declared in a few words by General Grant's message to General Buckner, I propose to move immediately on your works. Feeling that such a despatch might imply dissatisfaction with the course of the Tri

etary. He said all were well. Comstock accompanied Butler to Fort Fisher. That affair makes unpleasant feeling between army and navy. What is the real truth I don't know. W. F. Smith has gone to New Orleans as the head of a board to investigate the Quartermaster's Department there, and everything else. We have nothing of moment from Savannah since its surrender. Of course, Sherrman's army will not be idle there. The Rebels are in desperation. Jeff. Davis wants to make terms with France or England, and is willing to become colonially dependent on either of those powers and to abolish slavery. A violent discussion is now going on in the Confederacy on this subject, and on others, as, for instance, on arming negroes. I don't see how they can keep themselves going for a great while longer. The capture of Richmond now would certainly end them, and that event I suppose is not far distant... Rawlins was looking very well when I saw him last, a month ago. Shortly after

ch less consideration, received that appointment, while a month later an inferior place in the same service was offered to Dana. What or who caused this change of purpose has always been a matter of conjecture with me. It will be remembered that E. B. Washburne, Grant's first friend in public life, was also his first Secretary of State, and although he held office but a few days, for the purpose, as the President himself explained at the time, of giving him special prestige as minister to France, he was most active, in the short interval allowed him, in disposing of patronage and breaking political slates. While it is evident that Grant wanted to do the proper thing, and appear not ungrateful to Washburne, it is also evident that he did not intend to have that aggressive statesman too near at hand, and therefore decided to send him as far away as possible. That Dana concurred in this is hardly consistent with the assumption of the Sun that Washburne was to have a cabinet position

wed their detection. But, great as they were, they sank into insignificance, not only beside those of the carpet-bag governments of the South, but still more beside those committed by the Republican administration at Washington. It charged the Republican party and the Republican journals with stifling inquiry and concealing the magnitude and enormity of these crimes. It called attention to Senator Sumner's resolution of inquiry into the sale of arms and ammunition by the War Department to France, to be used in the war against Germany. It alleged that millions of money had been made by high officials and persons connected with the administration, and that those who were implicated were seeking refuge in a committee which had been packed to hide the truth and to whitewash instead of detect and punish the guilty. It declared that this had been done in the Black Friday and custom-house investigations; that a resolution to investigate a deficit of six millions in the stamps of the Inte

f Lincoln. But it was never pushed to the point of entirely breaking with the Southern interest until after the Civil War began. Even then it was reported that Bennett would not hang out the stars and stripes from the Herald office until after Fulton Street had been visited by a mob. But, however that may be, it is certain that Mr. Lincoln made a great account of the Herald afterwards; and I know of my own knowledge that at one time he tendered to Mr. Bennett the appointment of minister to France. The compliment was declined; but it was appreciated, and I don't think that after that there was ever a word in the Herald which could have caused pain to Mr. Lincoln. Finally, when the career of Mr. Bennett was ended, the antagonisms and hostilities that had surrounded his life were all appeased, he breathed his last in the faith of the Church he had so often insulted; and his remains were followed to the grave by members of his own profession for pall-bearers, Horace Greeley and Geor

t in 1879, and his third in 1882. During the next decade he went many times, his travels lasting three or four months and taking him in turn to England, Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, and Italy. While he manifested but little curiosity to see the rulers or the courts, or to mingle with the official classes, he studied the peopertainty upon Dana's sympathy and support. He had been the friend of Kossuth, of Mazzini, and of Garibaldi. He had pleaded in turn for a Democratic republic in France, for a free and united Germany, for the independence of Hungary, for home rule in Ireland, and for the consolidation and enfranchisement of Italy, and naturally, d to illustrate the evolution of the ceramic art.
