n this respect is illustrated by a case which occurred at this time. Col. T. G. Stevenson, of Boston, when serving in South Carolina early in 1863, expressed a passionate opinion against the policy of arming negroes, and his own unwillingness to serve with them; and upon the outburst becoming known he was put under arrest, Feb. 10, 1863, by General Hunter, who deemed the expressions disloyal. Boston Journal, Feb. 28, March 17, 1863; Boston Commonwealth, March 27, 1863; New York Tribune, March 17; D. W. Bartlett in New York Independent, June 11. At the time of the arrest his nomination as brigadiergeneral was pending in the Senate. He was the son of J. Thomas Stevenson, a conservative of the most rigid type, who will be remembered as a leader of the Cotton Whigs in 1845-1847, and a participant in the prison-discipline dispute of the same period, —always bitterly opposed to Sumner; Ante, vol.

uld have been thought a good session's work for most public men. It fills nearly one hundred and fifty pages of the report, and one hundred pages of Sumner's Works. It was, however, an investigation very congenial to Sumner. He wrote Lieber, March 17: I go home to work at my report on French spoliations. I am struck by the scrubs of the French Directory; but especially by the magnificent ability of Talleyrand, whose reply to our commissioners is a masterpiece.

ants, who had been prosecuted by the navy department on the charge of fraud, and after trial by court-martial, were sentenced to imprisonment and fine. He appealed directly to the President to annul the sentence, and at the latter's request prepared an Opinion Works, vol. IX. pp. 341-360; vol. XV. p. 66. reviewing the report of the Secretary of the Navy, who had approved the proceedings of the court-martial. Sumner sought the President with his Opinion as soon as it was finished, Friday, March 17; and the next day the President, in a sententious indorsement on the papers characteristic in style, entirely annulled the proceedings. Sumner's account of what took place after he prepared his Opinion is interesting:— It was late in the afternoon, and the latter [the President] was about entering his carriage for a drive, when Mr. Sumner arrived with the papers in his hand. He at once mentioned the result he had reached, and added that it was a case for instant action. The Pre

York, M. S. Wilkinson, former senator from Minnesota, William Lloyd Garrison, Gerrit Smith, Governor Claflin of Massachusetts, and A. H. Bullock, former governor of that State. This correspondence noted the popular disapproval and indignation with which the removal had been received. Within a week came an election in New Hampshire, a State hitherto steadily Republican, and the result was a Democratic success, which was attributed to the action of the Senate. Gerrit Smith wrote to Sumner, March 17: The New Hampshire election! What do they who expelled you from your committee think of this first response to their deed of shame? A leader of the party, destined to be its foremost leader, Mr. Blaine, then Speaker of the House, on a careful review of the debate and the reasons assigned, put on record at a later period his conviction of the injustice and folly of the Republican members of the Senate in the displacement of Sumner, Twenty Years in Congress, vol.

evident from the tone of Republican senators in the debate on the reference, as also from their action at a later day, that they were generally well disposed towards him personally, and desirous to go as far in supporting the measure he had so much at heart as their views of expediency and constitutional limitations admitted. The subsequent history of Sumner's bill may be properly given in this connection. It came back from the judiciary committee, April 14, Mr. Frelinghuysen stated, March 17, at the first session of the Senate after its adjournment on account of Sumner's death and funeral, that the committee's report was ready and would be submitted as soon as Mr. Edmunds, who was in favor of it, could be present. Harper's Weekly, April 11 and May 9, 1874, commended the bill. when he was no longer in the Senate, and was taken up for debate on the 29th. It had not been substantially abridged or weakened, but was left to apply to inns, public conveyances, theatres, and other pl
