of the Union troops at Perrysville, and requested that officer to forward the telegram to General McClellan at once. This the Colonel promised to do, and in a few minutes the important message was flying over the wires to its destination at Columbus, Ohio, and the President's request for my appearance at Washington followed soon after, and was received by me in due time. Recognizing the importance of the call, I lost no time in answering the dispatch of Mr. Lincoln, and started at once on mmunications addressed to me should be forwarded to that city, and on my arrival there I found a number of letters which required immediate attention. Among the number was the following, which had been somewhat delayed in its transmission. Columbus, Ohio, April 24, 1861. Allan Pinkerton, Esq., Dear Sir:-- I wish to see you with the least possible delay, to make arrangements with you of an important nature. I will be either here or in Cincinnati for the next few days — here to-morrow-C

agement in all the States, and on May 1 six hundred and fourteen delegates assembled in convention in Cincinnati. Meeting as they did without previous organization, they were largely at sea both as regards the form of the platform and the candidate. Charles Francis Adams was the preference of the radical civil service and tariff reformers. Illinois was divided between Senator Trumbull and Judge David Davis, of the United States Supreme Court. A Labor Reform National Convention, at Columbus, Ohio, on February 21 (twelve States being represented), had nominated Judge Davis for President. He declined the nomination on June 28 on the ground that he had consented to the use of his name in the Liberal Republican Convention. Governor Brown was the favorite of most of the Missouri delegates, and Pennsylvania was ready to vote for Curtin. Horace Greeley was supported by sixty-six of the sixty-eight New York delegates. How to nominate him on a platform in line with the declarations of
escape, except by fighting his way through, or leaping from a lofty and almost perpendicular precipice. Here he surrendered himself and the remnant of his command. Of the infamous treatment of this distinguished captive and his comrades, the following memorandum was made in the War Department at Richmond, signed by Lieut.-Col. Alston, as a personal witness: They were carried to Cincinnati, and from thence he [Gen. Morgan] and twenty-eight of his officers were selected and carried to Columbus, Ohio, where they were shaved and their hair cut very close by a negro convict. They were then marched to the bath room, and scrubbed, and from there to their cells where they were locked up. The Federal papers published, with great delight, a minute account of the whole proceedings. Seven days afterwards, forty-two more of Gen. Morgan's officers were conveyed from Johnson's Island to the penitentiary, and subjected to the same indignities. But these hardships and outrages did not break

b. 18: 182). I long to see the day when the great issue with the Slave Power, of the immediate dissolution of the Union, will be made by all the free States, for then the conflict will be a short and decisive one, and liberty will triumph. The Free Soil movement inevitably leads to it, and hence I hail it as the beginning of the end. The new movement had had a somewhat rapid development. From Cincinnati, in May, had issued a call for a Lib. 18.82. People's Convention to be held at Columbus, Ohio, on June 21, to form a party based on opposition to slavery extension. Whigs, Democrats, and Liberty Party men mingled in the three thousand signers to the call. Mr. Garrison did not see in this combination and its object the moral display which its promoters alleged. Our gratification, he said, at this movement is found Lib. 18.82. only in the evidence that it gives, that the anti-slavery agitation is spreading among all classes at the North. As for the issue that is presen

a slave-holding State. With her usual frank utterances of opinions, she was soon branded as an abolitionist, her articles excluded from the journals, and she from good society, with daily threats of violence to her person and the destruction of her property. Three disastrous fires-the work of incendiaries, no doubt — greatly reduced the resources of the family. Owing to her husband's ill health, and failure in business, she took the post of assistant editor of an agricultural paper in Columbus, Ohio; but as the breaking out of the war soon destroyed the circulation of the paper, and four of her sons had gone into the army, her thoughts turned to the scenes of conflict in the Southern States. The suffering freedmen and the boys in blue appealed alike to her loving heart for kindness and help; and, without appointment or salary, she went to Port Royal in 1862. She remained in Beaufort, Paris, and Fernandina thirteen months, ministering alike to the soldiers and freedmen, as opportun

Stearns, Tower, and Andrews. Sumner's was an inferior part, not equal to his general ability or merits as a scholar, nor what his classmates thought he deserved, but all that his standing in the regular course strictly admitted. He was one of four in a conference on The Roman Ceremonies, the System of the Druids, the Religion of the Hindoos, and the Superstition of the American Indians. The different systems were set forth in their order by John Bryant, of Boston, Isaac A. Jewett, of Columbus, Ohio, John B. Kerr, of Talbot County, Md., and Charles Sumner, of Boston. Sumner treated with sympathy and respect the religious belief of the Indians. He wrote on his manuscript that the programme had miscalled the part, which should have been The Religious Notions of the North American Indians. He seems to have been somewhat sensitive about his part. Anticipating his place on the programme, he had proposed to decline in advance any share in the public exercises of Commencement. His fat

ructure of history would be shirted from the past to the future. Rauschenbusch, Christianizing the social order, pp. 96-102. Many Christian pastors have attempted to live in the spirit of this gospel, but it is scarcely invidious to single out Washington Gladden (1836-1918) as the best-known and most effective worker for the regeneration of the social organism in the pulpit of our period. He was pastor in North Adams and Springfield, Massachusetts, and, for over thirty years, in Columbus, Ohio. He was the author of many books on the social and religious readjustment, of which perhaps On being a Christian (1876), applied Christianity (1886), who wrote the Bible? (1891), Tools and the man (1893), the Christian Pastor (1898), and The Labor question (1911 ) have had the largest sale. No one of these volumes, however, was written merely in order to be published; they grew out of the pressing problems of his ministry. His fine-spirited Recollections (1909) indicates the stormy t

throughout the Peninsular campaign. After this they became one of the companies (A) forming the Second South Carolina cavalry under command of M. C. Butler. Mr. Black was instrumental in getting his company to join this fine regiment, with which it remained until the close of the war. He was in all the engagements of his company with the enemy up to and including Gettysburg. On the retreat from Gettysburg, three or four days after the battle, he was captured and taken to Camp Chase at Columbus, O., where he remained seven months, when he was taken to Fort Delaware, where he was confined until the early part of April, 1865, and was then exchanged after having been in prison nineteen months and twenty-three days. After his exchange he received a thirty-day furlough and returned home, but before the expiration of his furlough the surrender had taken place. Mr. Black had an exceedingly interesting and daring experience in effecting his exchange. Those being made were of prisoners fro

mers moving by the Ohio, a large part of his force while attempting to cross into West Virginia at Buffington's Island was captured on the 21st of July, and on the 26th General Morgan was forced to surrender with as many more, bringing the aggregate of his loss to more than half of his original command. The remainder made their way to the South in small detachments and were organized at Abingdon, Va. Of the imprisonment of General Morgan and his principal officers in the penitentiary at Columbus, Ohio, his romantic escape from therewith six of his faithful comrades, Hines, Hocher-smith, Sheldon, Bennett, McGee and Taylor, and of his subsequent movements and tragic death, September 4, 1864, at Greeneville, Tenn., reference must be made to the full and able history of Morgan's cavalry by his distinguished second in command, Gen.
