r, he made famous in Mosses from an old Manse. He afterwards held a post in the Salem Custom House for three years; during which period he wrote little, but The Scarlet letter gradually took shape in his mind. It was published in 1850, to be followed during the two succeeding years by The house of the seven Gables and The Blithedale romance. Then followed seven years in Europe, four of them at the Liverpool consulate, and, as a result, his last great romance, The marble Faun. He died May 19, 1864. Hawthorne we all agree to be the greatest American imaginative prose writer; and his place in the literature of our tongue becomes every day more sure. If his genius matured slowly, it did really mature. His notebooks are frequently commonplace; probably because his art was massive and deliberate, and he had no faculty for spinning delight out of next to nothing. His personality, too, was of a subtlety and remoteness which could not be interpreted colloquially; perhaps it was only

n retaining it. After two committees of conference, the Senate yielded by a vote of twenty-six to thirteen. Some Republicans were influenced by the consideration that the issue was not a practical one, as there were no negroes in the Territory, and others probably were hampered by the existence of a similar discrimination in their own States. Sumner was very earnest in the discussion, and on two different days contended against the exclusion of colored men from suffrage. March 31 and May 19, 1864. Works, vol. VIII. pp. 236-243. To the objection that the question was not a practical one, he replied: But it is said that there are no persons in the new Territory to whom the principle is now applicable. This can make no difference. It is something to declare a principle; and I cannot hesitate to say that at this moment the principle is much more important than the bill. The bill may be postponed, but the principle must not be postponed. One incident of the debate was an encount

was detached and served at Maryland Heights, where it remained until December, 1863, having on June 10, 1863, lost 44 men as prisoners at Winchester, Va., and having taken part in a skirmish at Harper's Ferry about the same time. On May 17, 1864, the regiment, acting as infantry, joined the Army of the Potomac near Spotsylvania, Va., and entered with it into General Grant's campaign of 1864, being assigned to General Tyler's Division, 2d Army Corps. It took part in its first engagement May 19, 1864, on the Fredericksburg Road, near Ny River in the vicinity of Spotsylvania. Afterwards, as part of the 2d Brigade, 3d Division, it was engaged in the battles of North Anna and Cold Harbor, and, crossing the James River June 14, it took part in the assault on Petersburg, June 16 and 22. The regiment remained actively engaged in the siege of Petersburg until April, 1865, and took part, after the fall of the city, in the pursuit of the Confederates. After General Lee's surrender it was st
