I thank you, gentlemen, for remembering me so kindly on this occasion, and remain respectfully and truly your friend and servant, Robert C. Winthrop. Hon. Thomas Russell, Col. N. A. Thompson, H. F. French, Esq., Committee. Letter from Hon. Emory Washburn. Cambridge, Sept. 9, 1861. Gentlemen: You have entire permission to make any use of my name you may think proper in promoting the objects of the proposed meeting in Faneuil Hall this evening. I hope, besides, to be personally presship, or, by refusing to lend a hand, suffering her to drift upon the shoals and breakers that surround her. Not doubting that old Faneuil Hall will again ring to-night with eloquence worthy of the grave ovation which calls the people together, and hoping to share with others the pleasure of listening to the distinguished gentlemen who are to address them, I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant, Emory Washburn. Hon. Thomas Russell, Hon. Newell A. Thompson, Hon. Henry F. French.

The secret, sudden, and effectual dismemberment of the Whig, Democratic, and Free Soil parties, in this State, by the agency of an association improperly called Know Nothings, gave a new character to the political affairs of Medford; and, at the last gubernatorial election, the votes stood thus:-- Henry J. Gardner, Know Nothing423. Emory Washburn, Whig147. Henry Bishop, Democratic29. H. Wilson, Free Soil9. To the honor of Medford it should be recorded, that amid the fiercest contentions of political parties, and at their caucuses, and at their ballotings, there have never been instances of ruthless violence, or passionate menace, or systematic corruption. The meetings have been marked with that decorum and self-respect which evince an intelligent and virtuous community. Votes in Medford for representatives in Congress.

May 28, 1861.—Governor writes to Jacob F. Kent, Esq., Providence, R. I., that Massachusetts is allowed six regiments, and would be glad to send twenty, if they would let her. He writes to Governor Washburn, of Maine,— If I have a chance to make an appointment of a good man as officer, I make no question as to his age, unless he comes somewhere near Methuselah. I hold that I am not bound to take judicial notice of a man's age, or to enter into any particular investigation on the subject, provided I feel that I have got the right man. Both of us know some people at fifty who are younger than some at twenty-five; yet, on the whole, I like the suggestion of the War Department; and, if<

Aug. 3.—The Governor telegraphs to Senators Sumner and Wilson, Can it be intended by Congress, that volunteers in the field shall fill vacancies by election? Where is to be the source of discipline, when every candidate is seeking personal favor of the men? Aug. 14.—The Governor telegraphs to Governor Washburn, of Maine, General Sherman left here, this afternoon, for Concord, N. H., intending to proceed thence to Augusta. His business is of importance, which justifies your waiting for him there. General Sherman came to Boston to confer privately with the Governor, in regard to an expedition contemplated by the Government to the coast of North Carolina. Massachusetts was to furnish three regiments for it; New Hampshire and Maine were also to furnish regiments. General Sherman had command<
ntingent for the army. It was not until 1864, after Massachusetts had sent upwards of twenty-three thousand men into the navy, that credits were allowed by Congress for the men who manned our frigates, under Porter and Farragut, watched blockade-runners, and sealed the Southern ports. Governor Andrew had frequently spoken of the injustice of Congress in refusing to allow these credits, and had exerted himself to the utmost to effect a change. On the 27th of August, he telegraphed to Governor Washburn, of Maine,— Has Maine succeeded in obtaining an allowance on her men in the navy towards the army draft? If not, does she propose to be content without such an allowance? How can some towns possibly fill their quotas without it? On the same day in which the above was written, Governor Andrew drew up a form of a letter, addressed to President Lincoln, which was sent to the Governors of the New-England States, which, if approved, they were requested to sign. The letter recei

Williams, prominent citizens of Cambridge, and by George Thompson, a member of the British Parliament. At the close of the meeting, Ex-Governor Washburn, of Massachusetts, led off in hearty cheers for the loyal people of the Border States. Cheers were also given for the laboring people of Great Britain, who have stood by us in this war, and for the army and the old flag. The Mayor recommended, that the people generally illuminate their houses, and display the red, white, and blue, and announced that the bells of the city would be rung. The Walcott Guards under Captain Meacham marched through the principal streets, cheering for the
