e patriot soldiers who at the first call of their country left their peaceful homes for the untried duties of the camp and battlefield. The proposal met with a hearty response from all, and this society was at once organized. The Society had open weekly meetings at their rooms during the war to supply material for sewing. We have not received a complete statement of the work done by the Society during the period of its existence; but taking the twelve months from April 19, 1863, to April 19, 1864, as a criterion of the whole, we may form a pretty accurate judgment of the good accomplished. During the months named the receipts of the Society in money amounted to four thousand four hundred and sixteen dollars and seventeen cents; and there were forwarded to the front 402 flannel shirts, 369 cotton shirts, 271 pairs of flannel drawers, 212 pairs cotton drawers, 95 dressing-gowns, 156 jackets, 75 pairs pants, 15 vests, 43 pairs slippers, 47 caps, 622 cravats, 1,060 towels, 1,259 han

is practically important, so that it is difficult to measure it. Sumner's first motion to repeal the Fugitive Slave Act was made Aug. 26, 1852, when it received only three votes besides his own. His second motion for the repeal was made July 31, 1854, when ten senators voted for it; and his third was made Feb. 23, 1855, when nine senators voted for it. Ante, vol. III. pp. 303, 304, 393, 412. After a struggle of twelve years his courage and pertinacity prevailed. He said in debate, April 19, 1864:— Often, in other times, I have discussed these questions in the Senate and before the people; but the time for discussion is passed. And permit me to confess my gladness in this day. I was chosen to the Senate for the first time immediately after the passage of the infamous Act of 1850.
