wrote to Mrs. L. M. Child, April 2:— I trust that the letter to the emperor of Brazil, with the excellent tract, Mrs. Child's pamphlet, The Right Way the Safe Way. is already far on the way. I gave them to the Brazilian minister here, with the request that he would have the goodness to forward them. I count much upon the enlightened character of the emperor. Of course, slavery must cease everywhere when it ceases among us. Its neck is in our rebellion, which we are now sure to cut. Cuba, Porto Rico, and Brazil must do as we do, without our terrible war, I trust. Sumner remained in Washington two months longer. It was, as already seen, his custom to linger there after the close of a session in order to bring up arrears of business and correspondence, and to prosecute studies on questions pending or at hand; but he had a particular purpose now, when projects of reconstruction, in view of the approaching end of the rebellion, were rife.

Edmunds wrote from Burlington, Vt.:— It ought to have a place in every school-room and in every library of the land. Give me leave to hope, however, that you will not hasten the closing prophecy of irresistible attraction, and that you bring a little of your potent obstructiveness and technicality to bear against the hasty purchase of the Danish islands or Cuba. You see I do not include British Columbia. Schuyler Colfax wrote from South Bend, Indiana:— I write this hurried note to tell you how much I was interested and instructed by your article in the last Atlantic. How you find time for so much research I cannot imagine; but the results are always valuable to your friends, among whom allow me to count as one. James Dixon, late senator from Connecticut, wrote, September 11:— The fertility of your mind seems exhaustless. The s<

He reported against the resolution after the House had added a recognition of the independence of Cuba.-one of Mr. Banks's projects,—March 2 and 3, 1669 (Globe, pp. 1819, 1828, 1864). the maintenance of mixed courts in Africa for the suppression of the slave-trade under the treaty with Great Britain, and the payment of salaries to the judges. Feb. 1, 2, and 3 (Congressional Globe, pp. 765-767, 783-786, 818). The New York World, with reference to this debate, referred, February 5, to his dictatorship in the Senate.

He Senate took a recess till half-past 7 in the evening, when Morton replied to Sumner. He repelled the charge of usurpation and the comparison of the President with Buchanan and Pierce, but passed lightly over the use of our ships in the Haytian and Dominican waters. Though predicting the annexation of San Domingo and also of Cuba and Porto Rico at some future time, he as well as the other supporters of the resolution put aside the ultimate question, and contended that the proposed commission would result in useful information. Aorton's speech was the strongest on his side, and it kept within the limits of parliamentary law and good breeding. Nye justified the President, but paid a tribute to Sumner's character as the boldest among the bold of the champions of human freedom, as spotless as the mountain snow, and spok

This interest, ever ready to provoke or aid an insurrection in Cuba, held a public meeting at Steinway Hall, November 17, to stimulate a war spirit against Spain. William M. Evarts took thevictions, and do not cease to be yourself because of the insanity which infects the citizens of New York on the subject of Cuba. Longfellow wrote on a postal card: I like your letter to the Cubans extremely. That is the way a statesman should thinkal armament against a friendly power, and the latter's subsequent career is well remembered. Behind all was the greed for Cuba and the watching of an opportunity to seize that possession of Spain. The whole transaction, reviving the memory of the O
