n of the suffrage; and (2) The execution of Jeff. Davis. I notice the cry for Jeff. Davis in England. This is the present form of sympathy for the rebellion. He does not deserve it. And yet I wish that his life should not be touched. It was painful to read what was said in Parliament on the President's death, except by Disraeli. Derby was wicked. Russell was drivel. It was a beautiful and masterly speech which Stansfeld James Stansfeld, who entered Parliament in 1859, and is still (1893) a member. made at the public meeting. That speech, if made by Russell, would have been as good as the payment of our claims. I have not the pleasure of knowing him; but I wished to thank him as I read it. The case was stated admirably. To R. Schleiden, June 27:—-- You will be pained to hear that poor Seward has been called to bear another blow. His wife, who is now dead, was a lady of rare talent and character. She died June 21, at the age of sixty. Sumner's affectionate trib

t is not encumbered with the duties of ordinary legislation Mr. Cameron secured action on all but one of the treaties at the session of Congress meeting March 4, 1871, when general legislation, except as to the condition of affairs in the Southern States, was excluded by rule; so that there was ample time for the consideration of treaties, as there is at special sessions of the Senate when the House is not in session. The Darien Canal treaty, which Sumner reported July 13, 1870, is still (1893) pending in the Senate; and, according to Davis's method of accusing Sumner, not only he but all his successors in the chairmanship have been, during a period of twenty-three years, culpable for not moving forward this treaty and securing the Senate's action upon it! (2) It does not appear that the Secretary of State ever asked the senator to obtain earlier action on any one of the treaties. (3) The treaties when reported were in the hands of the Senate, and could be called up by any senator.

s in favor of the treaty. The case of Alaska was very different, in which one of the chief motives was to show our regard for Russia for the part she had taken during the war, and to strengthen the Northwestern possessions. The St. Thomas purchase made no impression upon the committee or upon the public either. The smothered attack upon Mr. Sumner in this [Miss Seward's] article is most unjust. Mr. Cameron died June 26, 1889, at the age of ninety. Mr. Patterson and Mr. Harlan are still (1893) living. Mr. Patterson writes:— I have read the article by Miss Seward with a good deal of interest and more surprise. The Senate generally, I believe, regarded the treaty for the purchase of St. John and St. Thomas about as General Grant did,—as one of Seward's schemes, and determined to have nothing to do with it. Some denied the constitutionality, and more rejected the policy, of entering upon a system of annexing non-contiguous territory and outlying islands to the United State

and a sixth was reported the very next day after it was received. The treaty with Salvador was with the committee seven weeks, the last fortnight of which Mr. Sumner was prostrated with a severe illness which kept him from the Senate. The Darien Canal treaty remained with the committee only three months, although it. is still pending in the Senate, which has not been able to come to a conclusion upon its merits for the period of nearly eight years since it was reported. Still pending in 1893, twenty-three years after it was reported. When we consider the deliberation and obstructions to which public business is subjected, particularly in Congress, Mr. Sumner will be regarded by all who study these dates as having dealt with his share of it with extraordinary despatch. Senator Hoar, recently in this Review, recorded his amazement at the proof of diligence which this record gives, all the more impressive because of the various duties pressing on Mr. Sumner, and his belief that no
