s as if the curse of the Almighty has already overtaken them. For the first time in their political history, disgraceful tumults and anarchy have been witnessed in their cities. Blood has been shed without the sanction of the law, and even Sir Robert Peel has been enabled to taunt Americans with gross inconsistency and lawless proceedings. I differ with Sir Robert Peel on many points. On one point, however, I fully agree with him. Let the proud Americans learn that all parties in this counSir Robert Peel on many points. On one point, however, I fully agree with him. Let the proud Americans learn that all parties in this country unite in condemnation of their present conduct, and let them also learn that the worst of all aristocracies is that which prevails in America, an aristocracy which has been aptly denominated that of the human skin. The most insufferable pride is that shown by such an aristocracy. I will continue to hurl these taunts across the Atlantic. They will ascend the Mississippi, they will descend the Missouri, and be heard along the banks of the Ohio and Monongahela till the black man leaps delig

Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Ashburton, Alexander Baring, Lord, (search)
Ashburton, Alexander Baring, Lord, English diplomatist; born in England, Oct. 27, 1774; son of Sir Francis Baring, an eminent merchant: was employed, in his youth, in mercantile affairs, in the United States, and married an American wife. In 1810 he became the head of his father's business house; in 1812-35 sat in Parliament, and in 1835 was raised to the peerage under the title of Baron Ashburton. The unsettled condition of the Northeastern boundary question led Sir Robert Peel to send Baron Ashburton to the United States, as being widely acquainted with American affairs. Here he concluded, Aug. 9, 1842, with Daniel Webster, the Webster-Ashburton treaty, which settled the northeastern boundary between the United States and the British dominions. For this achievement he was accorded, in both Houses of Parliament, a complimentary vote of thanks, and an earldom was offered him, which he declined. He was privy councillor, a trustee of the British Museum, and received the D. C.

should be declared, the legislature of Massachusetts would take the lead in setting up a separate Northern confederation, which might result, perhaps, in some connection with Great Britain. He finally reported that a withdrawal from the Union was an unpopular idea there, but that there were leaders in favor of it. He did not mention any names. Henry went to England for the reward for his services, when he was treated coolly by the officers of the government, and, in a letter from Under-Secretary Peel, he was referred to Craig's successor in the Canadian government. Offended at this treatment. Henry did not go to Canada, but landed in Boston, accompanied by a Frenchman who called himself Count de Crillon, but who was an impostor and swindler. Henry visited Governor Gerry, and from him obtained a letter of introduction to President Madison. He then went to Washington, and laid the whole matter before the President, who was so well satisfied of the great value of Henry's disclosur

e minimum. Of course the army will be concentrated before we reach Monterey. We are only a detachment (about one thousand) sent in advance, to take possession of this point, to which provisions, etc., will be sent for the supply of after columns. I sincerely trust that our advance movement will be but the beginning of the end, and that we shall soon have an opportunity of showing these people our determination to push this war, and hence induce them to come to terms. I see, by Sir Robert Peel's speech, that England did offer her mediation, and therefore presume it has been declined by Mr. Polk. As to the contemplated attack on the castle of San Juan de Ulloa, I very much fear it will be a failure, if the Mexicans make a stout resistance. I never believed in the ability of fleets to take fortifications, though the navy always expressed its confidence of success, until it became necessary for it to attempt it. I think now it would be more prudent, as far as success is con

ripple the South and assist the North in keeping the seceded States in the Union, President Lincoln issued his Proclamation of Emancipation. When this was done the time for the Confederate States to establish friendly relations with foreign nations had passed. The fact should not be overlooked that the great Conservative party of England—which, to a considerable extent, represented the land-holding and agricultural interests of the country, formerly led by the Duke of Wellington and Sir Robert Peel, and latterly by the Earl of Derby and Mr. Disraeli—sympathized deeply with the conservative attitude of the people of the Confederate States. Although not in power during the war, the Tory party was strong and vigorous. It retired from control of the government, Lord Derby and Mr. Disraeli resigning in June, 1859, on account of the question between Austria and Italy, and it came into office again, succeeding the Palmerston-Russell Administration, in June, 1866. The parties were near
ited to the blowing-tube by a boss, around which point the glass was also much thicker than at other portions, especially near the periphery of the disk. See crown-glass. Owing to the vexatious excise laws of England, it was almost impossible to introduce improvements in the manufacture of glass, as was illustrated in the abortive attempts of the English opticians to manufacture lenses of large sizes, even under semi-official sanction. The general relaxation of the excise system under Sir Robert Peel's Act of 1846, rendered possible the introduction into England of an improved method, for some time then past in use in France and Belgium. The glass used upon the Exhibition Building of 1851 was made upon this plan, which is briefly as follows:— The workman dips his iron tube into the semiviscid glass, and takes up a quantity amounting to 12 or 14 lbs.; he rolls the mass on a wooden block, till it assumes a cylindrical shape; he applies his mouth to the other end of the tube, and
, the invention seemed to have no repute or success at the time, but came out again twelve years afterward as the invention of Hargreaves, under the auspices of Robert Peel, of Bamber Bridge, the grandfather of the statesman, Sir Robert Peel.

Hargreaves fixed one of the cards in a block of wood, and the other was slung from hooks fixed in a beam. The hooks remained in the kitchen at Peel fold in 1850, but the cards were destroyed by a mob who came from Blackburn, — a part of the same wretched story of ignorant men opposing the introduction of machinery. The same Robert Peel, or his son of the same name and the father of the statesman, employed HargreavePeel fold in 1850, but the cards were destroyed by a mob who came from Blackburn, — a part of the same wretched story of ignorant men opposing the introduction of machinery. The same Robert Peel, or his son of the same name and the father of the statesman, employed Hargreaves in 1762 to erect the cylinder cardingmachines in a mill at Blackburn. Though the carding-machine was well and efficiently constructed in the time of Arkwright, it was not till after several attempts by different men, Paul, Hargreaves, and Arkwright, worked in such a manner that it is difficult now to determine what share each
