e 15, 1858. This advice was instantly followed when the election of Mr. Lincoln was assured by the decision of the ballot-box, on the 6th of November. Indeed, before that decision was made, South Carolina conspirators — disciples and political successors of John C. Calhoun John Caldwell Calhoun, of South Carolina, always appears in history as the central figure of a group of politicians who, almost forty years ago, adopting the disunion theories put forth by a few Virginians, like John Taylor, of Caroline, and used by Jefferson and his friends for the temporary purpose of securing a political <*>arty victory at the close of the last century, began, in more modern times, the work of destroying the nationality of the Republic. With amazing intellectual vigor and acumen, Mr. Calhoun crystallized the crude elements of opposition to that nationality, found in so great abundance, as we have observed, in Virginia, during Washington's Administration, that it drew from him his great p

I enclose the official report of this most successful reconnoissance. Nemo. A secession account. Fredericksbubg, Va., November 12, 1861. The enemy made a landing at Matthias Point about two hours before daylight on Monday morning, in numbers reported at from sixty to two hundred. They immediately moved outward into the country, but so quiet had been the landing that our pickets in the vicinity were unapprised of the fact. One of the pickets, named Baker, belonging to Captain John Taylor's Cavalry, challenged some one approaching, when he was answered that a friend approached, and immediately thereafter received a ball from a pistol, which struck him in the breast and glanced around on the shoulder. The ball was afterward extracted with but slight injury to his person. The enemy next fired and burned to the ground the residence of Custis Grymes, which had been so perforated with shot and shell during the last few months by the enemy's vessels in the river as to be

Two batteries of artillery — Taylor's and Waterhouse's — were posted, the former at Shiloh, anin the woods to our front, throwing shells into our camp. Taylor's and Waterhouse's batteries promptly responded, and I theown regiment was in disorder. I therefore gave orders for Taylor's battery — still at Shiloh — to fall back as far as the Pervice in holding the enemy in check for some time, and Major Taylor also came up with another battery and got into positionand slowly, under a heavy fire of musketry and artillery.

h, in brief, was the main purport of the Virginia and Kentucky resolutions. The sort of interposition intended was left in studied obscurity. Not a word was dropped of secession from the Union. Mr. Nicholas's resolution in 1799 hinted at nullification as the appropriate remedy for an unconstitutional law, but what was meant by the ill-sounding word was not explained. The words null, void, and of no effect, contained in the original draft of the Virginia resolutions, were, on motion of John Taylor of Caroline, stricken from them, on their passage through the assembly; and Mr. Madison, in his report of 1799, carefully explains that no extra constitutional measures were intended. One of the Kentucky resolutions ends with an invitation to the States to unite in a petition to Congress to repeal the laws. These resolutions were communicated, as I have said, to the other States for concurrence. From most of them no response was received; some adopted dissenting reports and resolutio

Many residences were handsomely decorated. After the march the visitors were left at their hotel long enough to brush up and lunch, and were then taken to the Wilkes Post Industrial Exhibition at Taylor's Hall, where they were received with marked courtesy by the ladies and gentlemen in charge. The visit to the Exposition over, at about 10 P. M., hosts and guests assembled at the hotel, and arm in arm marched into the banquet, spread on three immense tables in the dining-hall. Senator John Taylor, of Trenton, presided. Toasts were read to The South, The old First Virginia, The Otey Battery, Our country, Richmond, The old Dominion, &c., &c., and appropriate responses were made. The speeches on both sides were manly, generous, free from cant, and such as befit soldiers. It was the next day when the whole company united in singing the Star Spangled Banner. On the morning of the 13th, carriages appeared at the hotel as if by magic. The private carriages of many of the be

r office by the Democratic party was equivalent to an election. On March 16, 1816, a congressional Democratic caucus was held, at which the names of James Monroe and William H. Crawford (q. v.) were presented for nomination. There were many who did not like Monroe who were ready to press the nomination of Crawford, and, had he been inclined for a struggle, he might have received the votes of the caucus. There had been much intriguing before the caucus. At that gathering Henry Clay and John Taylor, of New York, moved that congressional caucus nominations for the Presidency were inexpedient and ought not to be continued. These motions having failed, Monroe received 65 votes to 54 for Crawford. Daniel D. Tompkins received 85 votes of the caucus for Vice-President to 30 for Governor Snyder. After the election in the autumn it was found, when the votes of the electoral colleges were counted, that Monroe had received the votes of all the States excepting Massachusetts, Connecticut,

Taylor soon joined Worth, and they encamped within 3 miles of the city, on Sept. 19, with about 7,000 men, and on the morning ofnally, on the fourth day of the siege, Ampudia asked for a truce. It was granted, and he prepared to evacuate the city. Taylor demanded absolute surrender, which was made on the 24th, when General Worth's division was quartered in the city, and GenGeneral Taylor, granting an armistice for eight weeks if permitted by his government, encamped with the remainder of his forces at Walnut Springs, a few miles from Monterey. In the siege of that city the Americans lost over 500 men. The Mexican loss wa
