of Columbia, and from the States of Virginia, Tennessee, Louisiana, Florida, and Arkansas, not to be entitled to vote. Upon consideration, this report was overruled so far as to authorize-by a vote of 310 to 151-the delegates from Tennessee to vote; those from Louisiana and Arkansas were likewise authorized to vote, by 307 to 167. The delegates from Nebraska, Colorado, and Nevada, were then allowed also to vote; but not those from Virginia, Florida, and the remaining territories. Mr. Henry J. Raymond, of N. Y., reported the platform, which was unanimously adopted. It is as follows:-- Resolved, That it is the highest duty of every American citizen to maintain against all their enemies the integrity of the Union and the paramount authority of the Constitution and the laws of the United States; and that, laying aside all differences and political opinions, we pledge ourselves as Union men, animated by a common sentiment, and aiming at a common object, to do everything in our pow

nd even most of its tributaries — was in the full and complete control of the Federal Government, being policed from Memphis to New Orleans so thoroughly that it was difficult for even an individual to cross. It was essentially free from annoyance, even of field batteries and riflemen. This was fully comprehended by General Sherman, who previously, by General Grant's direction, had penetrated Mississippi beyond Brandon, pushing General Joe Johnston and his small force almost to Meridian. Raymond, Jackson and Brandon had already felt the Sherman torch, and monumental chimneys marked the localities of these towns. The country from Vicksburg to Brandon had already been laid waste and desolated, and beyond Brandon towards Meridian was a poor, piney-woods country, destitute of supplies for either army. Notwithstanding this condition of affairs (well known to Sherman), there remained at Natchez a large division of Federals under General Davidson; at Vicksburg, McPherson's Seventeenth a

American Arms and Ammunition, A Personal and what came of it, Topics of the Time, Home and Society, and other articles are very cleverly done and beautifully illustrated. But we were especially interested in Extracts from the journal of Henry J. Raymond, the famous Editor of the New York Times. This number gives a vivid descriprion of his visit to Army of the Potomac in January, 1863, his private intercouse with Generals Burnside, Sumner, Wadsworth, and other officers, and a good deal of thurg, the plan of Burnside to cross the river again below Fredericksburg, which was prevented by a telegram from Mr. Lincoln, and the celebrated stick in the mud expedition, which was defeated before the column reached the place of crossing. Mr. Raymond tells a good deal of the dissensions among the generals of the Army of the Potomac at this time, and narrates a good many things which form pleasant reading for an old Confederate, and some of which we may hereafter have occasion to quote.
ith the people themselves, it is to determine this great question, and I cannot doubt what will be the determination. We will stand by our Constitution and our laws, and we will enforce our Constitution and our laws (Applause.) Speech of Henry J. Raymond. Fellow-Americans and brethren, in the cause of human liberty I never felt more at a loss for words, I never felt more the poverty of human language, than at this moment. But what need that I should say any thing to you, when the occasioay choose to go. (Loud cheers.) The people have resolved that the Government shall be preserved, and they must and shall preserve it. At this time the speaker was interrupted by many voices crying out--At what time will the Baltic leave? Mr. Raymond--At 10 o'clock, I learn, from the foot of Canal street. (Three cheers were given for General Scott, and three for the Baltic.) Fellow-citizens, I believe that we have a Government at Washington on which we can rely, and worthy of preserving.

f Lincoln, by Isaac N. Arnold, then a member of Congress from Illinois. A Pennsylvanian asked Thaddeus Stevens, the Republican Congressional leader, to introduce him to a member of Congress who was friendly to Mr. Lincoln's renomination. Thereupon Stevens took him to Arnold, saying: Here is a man who wants to find a Lincoln member of Congress, and as you are the only one I know of I bring him to you. The same feeling largely prevailed among leading Republicans outside of Congress. Henry J. Raymond, of the New York Times, in his Life of Lincoln, says that at that time nearly all the original Abolitionists and many of the more decidedly Anti-Slavery members of the Republican party were dissatisfied with the President. More explicit testimony is the statement, in his Political Recollections, of George W. Julian, for many years a leading member of Congress from Indiana. He says: The nomination of Mr. Lincoln was nearly unanimous, only the State of Missouri opposing him, but

e thousand dollars cash, and glad to get off so. Greeley has fared worse. Why, last week he had to let good lands in Pike County, Pennsylvania, on which he had paid five thousand dollars, go to the dogs because he couldn't raise five hundred dollars. So we go, and the worst not come yet. We are lucky who are not under the necessity of borrowing. The hope of putting up the price of daily papers in New York, although favored by the Herald, came to naught, because, under the influence of Raymond, the Times opposed it. In the end the reduction of expenses proved to be the salvation of the Tribune, which never missed an issue, but continued with renewed determination to be the organ of all who were in any way opposed to the extension or favored the destruction of slavery. On May 2d, in reply to the ominous warnings which reached it from many sides, it declared, this time in the unmistakable language of Greeley: We do not believe the Union in any present danger, yet we say most
