hereof was read, the Secretary of the Senate making a note thereof. The electoral votes of New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont, and New York were similarly disposed of. Senator Douglas suggested, and no objection was made, that the formal part of the certificates, and the names of the electors, be omitted from the reading. The reading of the vote of South Carolina was productive of good-humored excitement. The reading of all the electoral votes having been completed, the tellers reported the result: Whereupon the Vice President, rising, said: Abraham Lincoln, of Illinois, having received a majority of the whole number of electoral votes, is duly elected President of the United States for the four years commencing on the 4th of March, 1861: And that Hannibal Hamlin, of Maine, having received a majority of the whole number of electoral votes, is duly elected Vice President of the United States for the same term.--Commercial Advertiser.
f Boston, of the conservative party; and Benjamin F. Butler, of Lowell, of the Breckenridge wing of the Democratic party. John A. Andrew received 104,527 votes; Erasmus D. Beach, 35,191; Amos A. Lawrence, 23,816; Benjamin F. Butler, 6,000; all others, 75. Mr. Andrew's majority over all the opposing candidates was 39,445. The eight councillors elected were all Republicans, as were all the members of Congress. The presidential electors in favor of the election of Abraham Lincoln and Hannibal Hamlin, for President and Vice-President of the United States, received about the same majority Mr. Andrew did for Governor. Nearly all of the members of the Senate and House of Representatives were of the Republican party. The newly elected Legislature met on the first Wednesday in January, 1861. Hon. William Claflin, of Newton, was chosen President of the Senate, and Stephen N. Gifford, Esq., of Duxbury, clerk. Hon. John A. Goodwin, of Lowell, was chosen Speaker of the House of Represen
s, of Great Falls, N. H., for her offer to nurse our wounded men in Baltimore; also Miss Laura B. Forbes, of Cambridgeport, for the same offer. Telegraphs Hon. Hannibal Hamlin, Vice-President, Hampden, Me., I advise you to come forward without delay, in view of possible events at Washington. Telegraphs Governor Washburn, of Main left Boston for Washington on the 23d of April. In New York, he had an interview with Major-General Wool, commanding the Department of the East, and with Vice-President Hamlin, whom he met there. On the 24th he wrote to the Governor, General Wool and Vice-President Hamlin are in favor of your taking the responsibility of sendingVice-President Hamlin are in favor of your taking the responsibility of sending two regiments to take charge of the forts, and to furnish and arm three vessels for the protection of the coast. You can exercise the power, under the circumstances, better than any one else. On the same day on which this letter was written, an order passed the Executive Council, that the Governor send a force of militia to garr

There were a great many cases of this character, some of which have not yet been settled, for want of proper vouchers, which should have been furnished by officers. On the 4th of June, the Adjutant-General reported to the Governor, in writing, that he had received a large number of reports from our batteries in the Army of the Gulf, which related to matters which he deemed proper to acquaint him with. The first was a letter from Captain Hamlin, of the Thirteenth Battery, which had left Boston on the 31st of January, but which was detained at Fortress Monroe, and, after a very long and tedious voyage, arrived at New Orleans on the 10th of May. The ship was becalmed off the coast of Florida, and, for a time, was short of water. The captain wrote that he had received authority to recruit men from the Massachusetts nine months regiments in the department, whose terms of service were about to expire; and he had no doubt he would

On the nineteenth day of May, the Constitutional Union (being the old American) party held their convention in the city of Baltimore, and nominated John Bell, of Tennessee, for President, and Edward Everett, of Massachusetts, for the Vice-Presidency, The Republican Convention was held on the sixteenth day of May, in the city of Chicago, and upon the third ballot nominated Abraham Lincoln, of Illinois, for the office of President, and Hannibal Hamlin, of Maine, for the second office. This convention also adopted a platform very pronounced upon the subject of Slavery, and which was calculated to give but little encouragement to the extension or perpetuity of the slave-holding power. On the eighteenth day of June the regular Democratic Convention assembled, pursuant to adjournment, in the city of Baltimore, and named Stephen A. Douglas, of Illinois, and Herschel V. Johnson, of Georgia, as their standard-bearers in the political

ed enumeration of their political principles, as, The Constitution of the Country, the Union of the States, and Enforcement of the Laws. The National Convention of the Black Republican party was held at Chicago in the month of June. It adopted a platform declaring freedom to be the normal condition of the Territories; and protesting especial attachment to the Union of the States. The Presidential ticket nominated by the Convention was, Abraham Lincoln of Illinois for President, and Hannibal Hamlin of Maine for Vice-President. The great majority of the Southern Democracy supported the Breckinridge ticket; it was the leading ticket in all the Slave States except Missouri; but in the North only a small and feeble minority of the Democratic party gave it their support. In several States, the friends of Douglas, of Breckinridge, and of Bell coalesced, to a certain extent, with a view to the defeat of Lincoln, but without success, except in New Jersey, where they partially succeed

ent Tyler promptly resorted to a joint resolution, easily carried through the House, but passing the Senate by a majority of only two votes, and taking effect March 2, 1845, two days before Tyler was succeeded by Polk, who was instigated by the same pro-slavery ambition as his predecessor. The slave-power was then the master of the Democratic party; and Northern Democrats—some from pro-slavery sympathies, and others from servile fear—voted for the measure in Congress, In the House, Hannibal Hamlin of Maine, Democrat, voted for the resolution; but another Democrat from New England, John P. Hale of New Hampshire, revolted from his party. With the latter also stood Preston King of New York. In the Senate, John A. Dix of New York, an unstable politician, voted for it. joined by a sufficient number of Whigs in the Senate to carry it through.
