Chapter 23. Cameron's report Lincoln's letter to Bancroft annual message on slavery the Delaware experiment joint resolution on compensated abolishment first border State interview Stevens's comment- District of Columbia abolishment Committee on abolishment Hunter's order revoked antislavery measures of Congress second border State interview emancipation proposed and postponed The relation of the war to the institution of slavery has been touched upon in descrild from the enemy to be disposed of in future as Congress might deem best. Mr. Lincoln saw clearly enough what a serious political role the slavery question was likely to play during the continuance of the war. Replying to a letter from the Hon. George Bancroft, in which that accomplished historian predicted that posterity would not be satisfied with the results of the war unless it should effect an increase of the free States, the President wrote: The main thought in the closing paragra

Because of the war we secured transportation only as far as Vera, and here we received information that the Prussian Minister of War had telegraphed to the Military Inspector of Railroads to take charge of us on our arrival at Cologne, and send us down to the headquarters of the Prussian army, but the Inspector, for some unexplained reason, instead of doing this, sent us on to Berlin. Here our Minister, Mr. George Bancroft, met us with a telegram from the German Chancellor, Count Bismarck, saying we were expected to come direct to the King's headquarters; and we learned also that a despatch had been sent to the Prussian Minister at Brussels directing him to forward us from Cologne to the army, instead of allowing us to go on to Berlin, but that we had reached and quit Brussels without the Minister's knowledge.

Shortly after we arrived in Berlin the Queen sent a messenger offering us an opportunity to pay our respects, and fixed an hour for the visit, which was to take place the next day; but as the tenor of the despatch Mr. Bancroft had received from Count Bismarck indicated that some important event which it was desired I should witness was about to happen at the theatre of war, our Minister got us excused from our visit of ceremony, and we started for the headquarters of the German army that evening-our stay in the Prussian capital having been somewhat less than a day. Our train was a very long one, of over eighty cars, and though drawn by three locomotives, its progress to Cologne was very slow and the journey

A large and influential meeting was held in Cooper Institute, at New York, to express sympathy for and take measures to furnish relief to those loyal inhabitants of North Carolina, who, deprived of their usual means of support, and overawed and crushed by rebels in arms, are reduced to great straits of suffering. The Hon. Geo. Bancroft presided. Eloquent addresses were made by the Chairman, by the Rev. M. N. Taylor, T. W. Conway, William Cullen Bryant, Gen. A. E. Burnside, Prof. Roswell C. Hitchcock, Dr. Lieber, the Rev. Dr. Tyng, and others. J. M. Morrison and W. E. Dodge, jr., were appointed to receive subscriptions and donations of supplies.

A reception was given this evening, at the Academy of Music in New York City, to the heroes of the frigates Cumberland and Congress, destroyed by the Merrimac in Hampton Roads. The Academy was crowded in every available part, and the most enthusiastic greeting was given to the men-o‘--war's men. Pelatiah Perit presided, and speeches were made by Professor Hitchcock, William M. Evarts, George Bancroft, and William E. Dodge. Descriptions of the fight and songs were given by the crew.--(Doc. 128.) Resolutions were unanimously adopted in both branches of the Massachusetts Legislature to-day, in furtherance of the suggestions of the Secretary of War, inviting the citizens of the Commonwealth to join, on Sunday next, in a general Te Deum in honor of the recent victories, and congratulating the Western States upon the valiant deeds of their soldiers in the Valley of the Mississippi.

Mr. Bancroft on the Declaration of Independence. Mr. Rufus Choate, deceased, has left upon record his opid it, but we are happy to have the opinion of Mr. George Bancroft, the best known of our historians, that the Don was not a tissue of glittering generalities. Mr. Bancroft contradicts the late Mr. Rufus Choate point blaniously responsive to those of that advocate; for Mr. Bancroft says distinctly that the Declaration avoided speing their virtuous horror when they read what Mr. George Bancroft has written. The bill of rights which it (i.al justice that is anterior to the State. But Mr. Bancroft goes still further; nor can we forbear the pleashe glad tidings and their universal application, Mr. Bancroft says: The astonished nations as they read that aly-remembered accents of their mother tongue.

f the warrior chieftain elicited the most enthusiastic approbation. The Singing Society then chaunted a splendid chorus, entitled the Warrior's prayer. Hon. George Bancroft, the eminent historian, led Miss Pauline Antoinette Witthaus to the centre of the stoop, the son and little daughter of Mr. W. standing on each side, and t Mr. Amos F. Eno held in his hand the costly and chaste regimental banner which the young, accomplished, and patriotic lady presented to the De Kalb regiment. Mr. Bancroft, in a pure German accent, addressed the regiment as follows:--Worthy, brave, and gallant soldiers: I am greatly honored by introducing to you this blushing maists invited were: Gov. E.

Pierce, sang the Boatswain's call, and he was loudly applauded. The Hon. George Bancroft was next introduced. He said we must remember the wonderful condition in which these brave men were placed — not face to face with an equal enemy, but met by a new and untried power, that proved itself vastly superior to anything with which they were acquainted. And not only were they unable to resist the iron, but the Cumberland was so badly wounded that they could see how many sands might yet flow out before she was destined to go down. It was under these circumstances that our
