ife of Lincoln, vol. IV. pp. 269-277, Sumner was in Washington when this despatch was under consideration, and it is likely that the President advised with him concerning its modification. There was unfortunately in the critical period of 1861-1862 a conviction prevailing in England that Seward was personally hostile to that country, and bent on war with it. It may be accounted for by the tone of some of his official papers, as that of his letter, Oct. 14, 1861, to Lord Lyons; his proneness w; and he was happy to do good offices for the doctor in securing appointments in the army for two of his sons. They were as friendly and confidential as in the early days, and both rejoiced in their restored relations. A letter from Lieber in 1862 began with My old and restored friend. The suspension of their correspondence in 1853 would not be referred to in this Memoir but for an explanation given in a letter of Dr. Lieber printed in his Life and Letters, pp. 296, 297.

Chapter 45: an antislavery policy.—the Trent case.—Theories of reconstruction.—confiscation.—the session of 1861-1862. Sumner was in Washington ten days in the latter half of May, 1861, when he conferred with the President and General Scott, anry showed that it takes but little slavery to make a slave State with all the virus of slavery. June 26, July 1 and 14, 1862. Works, vol. VII. pp. 122-127. Failing to change the terms of the bill, he voted against the admission.

Chapter 46: qualities and habits as a senator.—1862. Sumner was from the beginning of his career in the Senate an interesting, and he had now become the most conspicuous, figure at the Capitol. His seat was first inquired for by visitors. Pall Mall Gazette, Dec. 26, 1866. The correspondent remarked upon the public interest in Sumner,—greater than in any other senator,—as also upon his qualities of intellect and character, saying that his motto might well be Frangi non flecti. Person, ided to him their interests in pending legislation, or in business with the departments, rather than to others who had passed their lives in professional, industrial, or commercial pursuits. The Congressional Globe's Index for the session (1860-1862) will show how much more Sumner attended to the details of the internal tax bill than his colleague, who had been a manufacturer, but was lacking in method.

Ultra-conservatism made its last struggle; and conspicuous among its leaders was Professor Joel Parker of Cambridge, whose judiciaand contrasted the circumstances of his first entrance into the Senate in 1851 and his present position. Other States were not as steadfast as Massachusetts in 1862. The Administration was outvoted in New York and New Jersey,—States which had chosen Republican electors, and now elected governors Horatio Seymour and Joel Paning sixteen months ago! But McClellan's failure did more for the good cause than any argument or persuasion. God bless you! Sumner attended in the autumn of 1862 the annual dinner of the Hampshire County Agricultural Society at Northampton, where he was called up by Erastus Hopkins, an accomplished orator and steadfast frie

In 1861– 1862, at Sumner's instance, Seward gave the count a place in his department as translgenuous as it is sophistical. but he first gave his views to the public early in 1862,—at first in a guarded, and later in a more positive, manner; venturing fur

began the work in the first session that I was here. God grant that I may end it to-day! Sumner succeeded at this session in carrying what he had proposed in 1862,—the abolition of the coastwise slave-trade, now left, as he said, the last support of slavery on the statutebook. He had reported a bill for the purpose, but as the Rise and Fall of the Slave Power, vol. III. pp. 455-504. Sumner kept up continuously the contest for civil equality which he began in the session of 1861-1862. The street railway companies of the District of Columbia provided special cars for colored people, and excluded them from all others; and the exclusion was rigidhe District. This ended the contest, and from that time all the cars on street railways in the District were as free to one race as to the other. Sumner had in 1862 secured the competency of colored persons as witnesses in the District of Columbia, but failed then to prevent their exclusion in other national tribunals, which,

He called attention to the obstruction of travel and trade by resolutions in 1862 and 1863, and introduced in 1864 a resolution authorizing any railway company to carry the government's supplies and troopCongress and in the electoral college, as well as for State autonomy.

haus; but I had before in Keith Johnston's vulgarization in English with Rogers's additions. I hope you will examine the pen-and-ink copy of the map of 1566 with the stretto di Anian, which is my most curious discovery in all this research. This you will find at the Coast Survey. I had two works of Kittlitz, —one in German and the other in English. Sumner put into his speech an intimation that the Senate should have been consulted in advance as to the treaty, Mr. Seward submitted in 1862 to the Senate the draught of a convention with Mexico for the assumption in part of her debt, and the Senate advising against it, the negotiation went no further. President Polk asked the advice of the Senate before concluding the treaty with Great Britain on the Oregon boundary. and also a protest against its being made a precedent for a system of indiscriminate and costly annexion,—adding his hope that subsequent expansions would come solely by the attraction of republican institutions wit

liged to enter on it again. While at the outset, before a rebel cruiser was upon the sea, he gave repeated warnings in his correspondence with English friends, high in public position, against the acts of their government which brought on the controversy, and had set forth the dangers of keeping the controversy open, he had meanwhile been most assiduous in the Senate in maintaining pacific relations with Great Britain, and preventing measures likely to produce irritation,—as in his speech in 1862 on the Trent case; his opposition in 1863 to letters of marque and reprisal; his resistance in 1864 to the attempt to embroil us with that country on account of the St. Albans raid; his defeat of the attempt in 1866 to scale down the neutrality acts; his opposition in 1868 to the retaliation bill; and his constant suppression of Mr. Chandler's bills and resolutions aimed against Great Britain. The New York Tribune, April 21, 1869, contrasts Sumner and Chandler in their treatment of interna

te, was made to remember by words written on a Prussian standard that the Black Eagle had conquered them at Koniggratz and Langensalza. Sumner, with the approval of high military authority, had twice before made efforts of a similar intent,—one in 1862, against placing on the regimental colors the names of victories obtained over our fellow-citizens; and another in 1865, against placing in the national Capitol any picture of a victory or battle with our own fellow-citizens,— without incurring crstimony. How a cultivated heathen could differ from me I do not understand. History is full of examples to sustain me; only the sea and tiger are as blind and senseless in ferocity as party hate. I long to state the case. Twice before, once in 1862, I offered this resolution with the applause of General Scott and General Robert Anderson. Where is Massachusetts civilization? Thus far our Commonwealth has led in the great battle of liberty and equality. By the blessing of God she shall lead
