termined effort in Massachusetts to repeal the personal liberty law of the State. An appeal to that effect, signed by Chief-Justice Shaw, recently retired from office, B. R. Curtis, Joel Parker, George Ticknor, and a large number of persons of high standing, was published in the papers and presented to the Legislature. It was supported by leading Boston journals. George Ashmun, who had presided at the national Republican convention, in an open letter to Mr. Winthrop urged the repeal. Governor Banks, yielding to the pressure, in a farewell message recommended the repeal; while his successor, Governor Andrew, took the opposite position, though willing to assent to the revision of any doubtful provision. Sumner was most earnest in his protests against a repeal, insisting that any questions concerning the statute should be left to the courts, and that a repeal under menace would be a humiliation. His letters, which were freely shown among members of the Legislature, were thought to h

General Banks came to Washington in the autumn of 1864, and remained some months even aftan, in order to press the recognition of the Louisiana State government. General Banks was not in favor with Mrs. Lincoln at this time. She wrote to Sumner notesl's appointment as a member of the Cabinet, which she feared might take place. Banks was very sore with Sumner on account of his opposition to the Louisiana plan.

re of long standing, and in some provisions coeval with the government itself. Banks, the chairman, and a majority of the House committee on foreign affairs were inon the table (Globe, p. 243) on Reverdy Johnson s motion, Sumner voting for it. Banks, in his report and speech, disparaged the American system of neutrality as wantto the senator as a public man and personal friend. Conkling and Orth supported Banks, and the bill passed the House unanimously—--a large proportion of the membersLieber:— I thought that I had told you the fate of the neutrality bill of Banks, which Bemis has so thoroughly riddled.

It came up for consideration late in January, and was voted upon April 20, 1868. N. P. Banks, chairman of the committee on foreign affairs, reported it, and led in the debate. He had been a conspicuous Know-Nothing, and was elected to Congress in 1854 by that secret order. He made a speech the next winter in the House in favor of irt for liberal institutions, with an appeal for the abolition of slavery; Dec. 17 and 19, 1868 (Congressional Globe, pp. 122,145).

The House had rejected Banks's resoluions acknowledging the Cuban insurgents as belligerents, and passed a single resolution of remonstrance against the barbarous manner in which the war was b island (J. W. Fabens). They plied members of Congress by personal solicitation, and distributed freely a pamphlet which they had prepared. The result appeared in Banks's resolution for a protectorate over Hayti and San Domingo, which after debate was laid on the table by a large majority. Jan. 12 and 13, 1869.

d not be understood as committing Congress to the policy of annexing San Domingo. This declaration, showing the judgment of that body, was the decisive influence which ended the agitation of the project after the inquiry had been concluded; it showed that the joint resolution for annexation could not be carried in the house. Among Republicans voting for the amendment were G. F. Hoar, H. L. Dawes, Eugene Hale, and James A. Garfield; and among those voting against it were B. F. Butler and N. P. Banks. The resolution was sent the same day to the Senate, where it was at once taken up. Sumner read from the newspapers accounts of civil war in San Domingo, and said that the whole scheme was nothing less than the buying of a bloody law-suit. The next day, after speeches from Stewart, Yates, and Wilson for the resolution, and from Schurz against it, the Senate concurred unanimously in the House amendment (Sumner voting for it), and rejected eight amendments offered by the senator.
