me, your friends feel that you are abandoning a position that might become an object of desire to any one. I will try to meet you in New Orleans at any time you may indicate; but it would be best for you to stop here, when, if possible, I will accompany you. Should you do so, you will find me just above the State-House, and facing it. Bring with you a few copies of the Rules of the seminary. Yours truly, S. A. Smith.

The perversion of true republican principles was greater in Virginia than in any other state, through the cooperation of the government of the United States. In the winter of 1860-‘61 a special session of the legislature of the state convened at Richmond and passed an act directing the people to elect delegates to a state convention to be held on February 14, 1861. The convention assembled, and was occupied with the subject of Federal relations and the adjustment of difficulties until the call for troops by President Lincoln was made, when an ordinance of secession was passed. The contiguity of the northwestern counties of the state of Ohio and Pennsylvania led to the manifestation of much opposition to the withdrawal of the state from the Union, and the determination to reorganize that portion into a separate state. This resulted in the asse

d beating heart, for the first sounds of the great disruption which is at hand. On the 14th of that month, whilst sitting quietly with my family, after the labors of the day, a messenger brought me the following telegram:-- Montgomery, Feb. 14, 1861. Sir:—On behalf of the Committee on Naval Affairs, I beg leave to request that you will repair to this place, at your earliest convenience. Your obedient servant, C. M. Conrad, Chairman. Commander Raphael Semmes, Washington, D. C. ou will have infused into the veins of future generations will yet rise up to vindicate you, and call you blessed. The telegram reached me about four o'clock, P. M., and I responded to it, on the same evening as follows: Washington, Feb. 14, 1861. Hon. C. M. Conrad, Chairman of the Committee on Naval Affairs, Congress of the Confederate States:—Despatch received; I will be with you immediately. Respectfully, &c., R. Semmes.

a manager, he chose English plays; and his close associate, Lawrence Barrett (1838-1891), was of the same mind, though he appeared in Boker's Francesca da Rimini (Chicago, 14 September, 1882) and W. D. Howells's version, from the Spanish, of Yorick's love (Cleveland, 26 October, 1878). Though as a family of managers the tradition of the Wallacks was distinctly English, Lester Wallack (1819-1888) romantically masked his old English comedy manner beneath local colour in Central Park (14 February, 1861); but his dash was happiest in such pieces, of his own concoction, as The romance of a poor young man (adapted by him 24 January, 1860) and Rosedale (produced 30 September, 1863). To the time of his last appearance (29 May, 1886), he was true to his English taste. To see Lester Wallack at his best, one had to see him as Shakespeare's Benedick or Mercutio; as Dumas's D'Artagnan, or in the social suavity of the Robertson and contemporary French drama. The British tradition seemed so

hington on the 4th March following. This was to resist an attempt which he apprehended would be made by an armed force to prevent the inauguration of President Lincoln and to seize the public property. The General was so firmly convinced of the reality of this plot, that nothing could shake his faith. It was in vain that a committee of the House of Representatives, after hearing the General himself, and after full investigation, had reported that his apprehensions were unfounded.

The stake, notwithstanding, was so vast and the General so urgent, that he granted him permission to bring to Washington all the troops he could muster to resist an imaginary but dreaded enemy. The whole number of these, including even the sappers and miners whom be had withdrawn from West Point, amounted to no more tha
