s 1830- Military officer; born in Leeds, Me., Nov. 8, 1830; graduated at Bowdoin College in 1850, and at West Point in 1854; entered the ordnance corps, and became instructor in mathematics at West Point in 1857.

After the battle of Antietam (q. v.) he commanded Sumner's corps; and while Hooker led the Army of the Potomac, in 1863, he was in command of the 11th Corps.

In 1864 he was in command of the Army of the Tennessee, and was in all of the battles in the Atlanta campaign.

above all men, Law. The first part of the Age of reason was written in the shadow of a prison, the second part in the gloom of death. From that shadow, from that gloom, came a flood of light. This testament, by which the wealth of a marvellous brain, the love of a great and heroic heart were given to the world, was written in the presence of the scaffold, when the writer believed he was giving his last message to his fellowmen. The Age of reason was his crime. Franklin, Jefferson, Sumner and Lincoln, the four greatest statesmen that America has produced, were believers in the creed of Thomas Paine. The Universalists and Unitarians have fund their best weapons, their best arguments, in the Age of reason. Slowly, but surely, the churches are adopting not only the arguments, but the opinions, of the great Reformer. Theodore Parker attacked the Old Testament and Calvinistic theology with the same weapons and with a bitterness excelled by no man who has expressed his thoug

s? Why can we not deprive these agitators of their vocation and render it impossible for Senators to come here upon bargains on the slavery question? I believe that the peace, the harmony, and perpetuity of the Union require us to go back to the doctrines of the Revolution, to the principles of the Compromise of 1850, and leave the people, under the Constitution, to do as they may see proper in respect to their own internal affairs. The crime against Kansas. On May 19-20, 1856, Charles Sumner delivered the following speech in the United States Senate on what he declared to be a crime against Kansas: Mr. President, you are now called to redress a great transgression. Seldom in the history of nations has such a question been presented. Tariffs, army bills, navy bills, land bills, are important, and justly occupy your care; but these all belong to the course of ordinary legislation. As means and instruments only, they are necessarily subordinate to the conservation of go

ppi secession convention. In 1861 he joined the Confederate army; in 1863-64 was a representative of the Confederacy in Europe, where he procured financial aid, but was unsuccessful in securing the recognition of the Southern Confederacy. After the war he became Professor, first of Political Economy and Social Science, in the Mississippi State University, and afterwards of Law. In 1872-76 he was a member of Congress. On April 27, 1874, he delivered an eloquent address on the death of Charles Sumner, for which he was highly praised, excepting by a few of his constituents, who, because of it, unsuccessfully endeavored to prevent his re-election. In 1877 he was elected to the United States Senate, and there strongly opposed both the debasement and the inflation of the currency. His views upon this question were widely repudiated in his State, whose legislature formally called on him to change his views or resign his seat. Although he refused to obey his legislature in either respec

ton's movements. I now believed such a plot to be in existence. The next morning I raised the flag over Independence Hall, and then went on to Harrisburg with Mr. Sumner, Major (now General) Hunter, Mr. Judd, Mr. Lamon, and others. There I met the legislature and people, dined, and waited until the time appointed for me to leaaded, without exciting any special curiosity. Then I put on the soft hat and joined my friends without being recognized by strangers, for I was not the same man. Sumner and Hunter wished to accompany me. I said, No; you are known, and your presence might betray me. I will only take Lamon [afterwards marshal of the District of The Democratic convention, 1860 Columbia, whom nobody knew] and Mr. Judd. Sumner and Hunter felt hurt. We went back to Philadelphia, and found a message there from Pinkerton [who had returned to Baltimore] that the conspirators had held their final meeting that evening, and it was doubtful whether they had nerve enough to attem

Between 1867 and the beginning of 1886, his most notable speeches, in the House and Senate were on Reconstruction; The impeachment of President Johnson; Principles of the Democratic party; Vindication of President Grant against the attack of Charles Sumner; The Ku-Klux in Louisiana; The equalization of bounties, etc.; The power of the government to enforce the United States laws; and the one declaring his belief that Gen. Fitz-John Porter had been justly condemned. The case of Fitz-John Porty is magnificent and tactics in the inverse proportion. I would like some of my ambulances. I would like, also, to be ordered to return to Fredericksburg and push towards Hanover, or, with a large force, to strike at Orange Court-house. I wish Sumner was at Washington and up near the Monocacy with good batteries. I do not doubt the enemy have large amounts of supplies provided for them, and I believe they have a contempt for this Army of Virginia. I wish myself away from it, with all our ol
