Miss Fanny Flanders were also well known for their persistent Unionism and their abundant labors for the sick and wounded. Mrs. and Miss Carrie Wolfley, Mrs. Dr. Kirchner, Mrs. Mills, Mrs. Bryden, Mrs. Barnett and Miss Bennett, Mrs. Wibrey, Mrs. Richardson, Mrs. Hodge, Mrs. Thomas, Mrs. Howell, Mrs. Charles Howe of Key West, and Miss Edwards from Massachusetts, were all faithful and earnest workers in the hospitals throughout the war, and Union women when their Unionism involved peril. Miss of scorn among the people of enlightened nations. Many of these patriotic loyal women, of the mountainous districts, rendered valuable aid to our escaping soldiers, as well as to the Union scouts who were in many cases their own kinsmen. Messrs. Richardson and Browne, the Tribune correspondents so long imprisoned, have given due honor to one of this class, the nameless heroine as they call her, Miss Melvina Stevens, a young and beautiful girl who from the age of fourteen had guided escaping

ve told him anything, you may be sure. I can readily believe that, said the detective, but if it is so dangerous here, how am I going to deliver these letters? I can help you there, said Sloan, after a moment's consideration; John Earl, Richardson and I will see that they are delivered, and that will keep you from incurring suspicion. That will do, said Webster, and you can tell the people you see to write their answers at once, and inclose them in two envelopes, one directed to theirher name is Timothy Webster. By Jove, Webster, you're a good one; I begin to think myself that there isn't so much danger of your getting caught after all. This being satisfactorily arranged, the two men started in search of John Earl and Richardson, who both agreed to assist in the delivery of the letters which Webster had brought with him from the South, They all went to the room occupied by the detective at the hotel, and after a friendly drink, the letters were properly assorted, and e

nderstands addition, Division, and silence --before the public. It exposed and denounced the Credit Mobilier gang, the Washington Ring, the Louisiana carpet-baggers, the Central Pacific contractors, the congressional salary grab, and the plan for the annexation of Santo Domingo. It opposed the confirmation of Caleb Cushing and George H. Williams for the Supreme Court of the United States, and had the pleasure of seeing their names withdrawn. It denounced the weakness and incompetency of Richardson as Secretary of the Treasury, the corruption of Creswell as Postmaster-General, and of Robeson as Secretary of the Navy. It held up to public scorn the name of Oakes Ames, for distributing gratuitously the stock of the Credit Mobilier, which had made enormous profits out of the construction of the Union Pacific Railway, and exposed such members of Congress and other public men by name as had accepted that stock in exchange for their votes and friendly offices.

tion of this letter was a shock to Greeley's old Tribune office friends, and Samuel Sinclair, long his publisher, in a note to that journal, dated January 1, 1888, said: When that letter was written Mr. Greeley had been and was still severely ill with brain fever; the entire letter, in my judgment, revealed that he was on the verge of insanity when he wrote it. Even this letter did not discourage the President. His biographers say: He smiled at frettings like those of Scott, Dix, and Richardson; but letters like that of Greeley made him sigh at the strange weakness of human character. Such things gave him pain, but they bred no resentment, and elicited no reply. Greeley's lack of faith in the ability of the North to preserve the Union by force of arms next manifested itself in efforts to settle the dispute by negotiation. With this end in view, he was ready to treat either with the representative of a foreign power or with any one assuming to represent the Confederacy. M. M

run a race — few of the graduating class have a step so elastic or a voice so strong. The dinner was like Commons dinners usually; there is a beautiful equality about these things — the most superb sumptuous collegiate festivals and the everyday prog of the cheap table meet on the common ground of two-pronged forks and dark brown geological plum-puddings. However, Dr. Dewey was not there and country ministers have good digestions. . .. I sat with Edward Hale, Sam Longfellow, and [James] Richardson, perhaps the three pleasantest persons in the room. The latter I am going to send you to preach Sunday, July 27 .... If he does n't astonish you I'm mistaken; he's a man of decided genius and great refinement, but has a crack somewhere in his caput; his preaching has been liked by the vulgar. I have never heard it — you must n't settle him. He looks like a Banished Lord. In 1847 Higginson made sundry visits at Newburyport preparatory to settling there as pastor of the Unitarian Chur<

shington and a day was appointed; but so many were going that it did not seem important. ... It was no disappointment to me, for the mere sensation of Civil War I got thoroughly in Kansas. ... I cannot feel as badly as you do about the war; I think that either they or we will emancipate the slaves in some form and so remove prospectively the only real obstacle to peace and prosperity, and then the bequest of debt and hate will be surmounted in a generation or two.

She says Generals are dog-cheap; President L. looks like his pictures; Mrs. Lincoln at the levee was well and quite expensively dressed; that is, her laces were fine, worth two thousand dollars, and she told a lady she hardly felt it right to wear them in these times, although they were a present.

Beautiful day begun with much surprise at my own advanced years, as there is very little inward change and it is generally thought I carry them well externally. In the summer of 1908, he was attracted by an article in the Dial called the Grandisonian Manner, and wrote this letter to the author:— Dear sir or madam:— You will pardon me for thus addressing you, when I tell you that I have just finished the whole series of Richardson's writings, including Diderot's commentary and all, having come upon them in one of the very best of the Massachusetts Public libraries in this attractive rural town [Ipswich]. All my life I have wished for time to renew Sir Charles, as I heard him read aloud by my mother in Cambridge in early boyhood; and as I am now fast approaching my 85th birthday it is a delight to find the book quite reviving the old affection and the old associations of humor.

had been made by the purchaser, the arms were, when the agency was well known, delivered six weeks later. When the Remingtons withdrew as open competitors, one Richardson, described in the debate as a little country lawyer, stepped in. He was not in the arms business, was a neighbor of the Remingtons at Ilion, and known to be in ons with them; and the arms sold to him went at once into their possession, and were thereupon shipped to France. Schurz challenged denial of his charge that Richardson was Remington's agent, but no senator rose. It appeared from Remington's letter—written two months after the secretary's order to the French officer at Tours, wviolation of international law.
