e general name of the Free Soil party. Van Buren was their nominee for the presidency and Charles Francis Adams for the vice-presidency. Seward, Greeley and Thurlow Weed, on account of dislike to Van Buren, the anti-slavery candidate, supported Taylor with such earnestness and skill as to carry New York and thus make Taylor prerth could attain a settled ascendancy, if the proposed combination could be secured. Good practical politicians like Giddings, Seward, Chase, Hale, Sumner, Banks, Weed —all men of eminent abilities, long used to political strategy—saw an opportunity to regain the governmental influence which they had lost since 1850. They were witing the post of secretary of war, and that he had relied on the promise, but Seward and the Southern Whigs persuaded the President not to make the appointment. Weed, Wade and Lovejoy feared that the cabinet would surrender to the South, while border State supporters of Mr. Lincoln did not like the selection of Blair or Bates.
