Before the Boston meetings occurred, Mr. Phillips had carried his hostility to Lincoln so far as to seek and accept, for the first time in his life, the votes of a political caucus, and he appeared as a delegate from his Ward in Boston May 23. at the State Convention to elect delegates to the approaching National Republican Convention at Baltimore. In this new role he made a speech in opposition to the Lib. 34.87, 94. resolution endorsing Mr. Lincoln, but without the slightest effect, for it was carried by acclamation. His utter failure to influence the Convention Mr. Phillips made special and unsuccessful efforts, also, to have an anti-Lincoln delegation sent to the Baltimore Convention from Vermont (Ms.

but the prevailing sense was of weariness— frequently expressed in a desire to go home—rather than in acute bodily pain, though that was not wanting. Once, in a wandering moment, he asked: Am I in England? his mind evidently reverting to his last happy visit there. What do you want, Mr. Garrison? said his physician to him on the morning of the 23d. To finish it up! was the reply. The wish was not long denied. That evening his children sang for him the old hymns of which he was so fond,—Ward, Hebron, Amsterdam, Christmas, Lenox (the last three especial favorites), Denmark, Portuguese Hymn, Coronation, Confidence, and Old Hundred. He could no longer speak, but he manifested his pleasure and consciousness by beating time both with his hands and feet, and was evidently happy in listening to the familiar words of spiritual cheer. An hour or two later the great change began; but so strong was his vitality that he lingered, unconscious, for twenty-four hours, and expired peacefully a<

An orderly but rapid transfer to the unarmed tender Landis was made; the magazines and charges in our guns were drowned as far as practicable. Commodore Mitchell, Lieutenants Wilkinson, Ward and I were the last to leave the Louisiana after firing her effectually. Commodore Mitchell then called me to him and told me to go in a boat, indicated, to Commodore Porter's flag-ship, then anchored off Fort Jackson, distant about a mile, and s of a brave soldier and a Christian gentleman in his bosom. He extended to us our paroles, putting us on the footing with other prisoners. A day or so after, the good, brave old Colonel sent for Commodore Mitchell, Lieutenants John Wilkinson, W. H. Ward, W. C. Whittle, and some other Lieutenants, and told us that he had been ordered from Washington to withdraw our paroles and put us in confinement. Upon inquiry, we learned that it was because of the report of Admiral Porter, of scandalous or

Ward, editor of the "Key of the Gulf," has arrived here from Pensacola. He states that on the 25th ult., the steamer Gen. Rusk arrived at Key West with 200 troops for Fort Taylor, and 100 for Fort Jefferson, Tortugas. The United States steamer Crusader, Lieut. Craven, had reached Key West with marines. The United States frigate Brooklyn was going into Key West, on the 16th. There was no doubt she had left her troops at Fort Pickens. The Texas Commissioners stipulated that the Rusk's troops should be landed at New York, and the commander of the three companies on board of her signed a paper exonerating Capt. Smith, of the Rusk, from any blame for the deception. By an arrival at Key West, on the 26th ult., It was reported that the Spanish flag had been hoisted at St. Domingo by the French and Spaniards.
