John G. B. Adams, Reminiscences of the Nineteenth Massachusetts Regiment, Chapter 16: the capture and return to Columbia. (search)
rt wherever they could. Usually when digging a tunnel we made holes in various places during the day, so that new dirt would not attract attention. The man inside had to be relieved often, as the air was so bad one could not remain over fifteen minutes. We were obliged to dig fifty-six feet before we were outside of the wall. As work could only be done at night, our progress was very slow. Fifty feet had been excavated, and it began to look as though we should be free again, but on February 14 the order came to move, and half the officers were taken out, marched to the depot, fooled around nearly all night in a drenching rain, then marched back to prison again, as they had no cars to take us out of the city. We renewed our work in the tunnel, continuing all night and the next day, but before we could get it beyond the wall they moved us. We covered up three of the officers in the dirt at the mouth of the tunnel, but when the rebels were making their last round through the pris

of Federal troops in that locality, and advising him to select some other and less hazardous one on his return to Washington. I did this to guard against their being suspected and detained after reaching the rebel lines, as, upon presenting this, they would at once be known as Southern emissaries, and given safe conduct to the capital. Provided with this letter, and with full verbal instructions as to their manner of proceeding, they started from Washington late on the evening of the 14th of February. As an additional safeguard, I sent along with them an operative by the name of William H. Scott, who was well acquainted with the various Federal commanders, and who was to see them safely across the Potomac river. The three men departed in good spirits, and, though fully conscious of the danger before them, thoroughly resolved to successfully accomplish what they had undertaken. Prior to despatching these men, I had some misgivings that there might be still remaining in Richmon

, they were not altogether pleased with his excessive application, and advised greater moderation in his studies. There was reason in their caution. It is possible to task the receptive capacity of the mind to the injury of its creative power; and Sumner, perhaps, gathered his knowledge too fast for the best intellectual discipline. His notes of the moot-court cases heard by the professors, in several of which he was counsel, Cases heard Oct. 22, Nov. 22, and Dec. 13, 1832; and Jan. 14, Feb. 18, June 5, July 5, and Oct. 20, 1833. are preserved. In Feb., 1833, he maintained (Wendell Phillips being of counsel on the other side) the negative of the question, whether a Scotch bond, assignable by the law of Scotland, can be sued by the assignee in his own name in our courts. He seems to have been dissatisfied with his argument, and wrote to Browne, stating his hesitation in public speaking, and his difficulty in selecting fit language for his thoughts. Browne replied, saying that

He was formerly American consul, and is at present a member of the French Institute. In the evening, called upon Foelix; he was just going out upon business, and without any ceremony left me to talk with his sisters. I spent about two hours or more airing my French in this conversation. Feb. 14. Heard this morning, at the École de Droit, M. Oudot, Francois Julien Oudot, 1804-1864. whom I had formerly seen presiding at an examination of students. He lectured on hypothecation. His manner was uninteresting. This forenoon, took a walk through the Faubourg St. Germain, the seat of the old noblesse of France. The houses are large and magnificent; but they stand back from the street, and have in front a high stone wall, say ten feet high. There is a wide porte-cochere, the ent

Journal had supported the Compromise of 1850, while the Atlas opposed it, though subsequently acquiescing. The Advertiser's articles against the Nebraska bill were the most elaborate. The Courier's opposition was from first to last only perfunctory. The Free Soilers were the first to realize the exigency, and the earliest to organize formal protests. Having first sought, without success, to have Mr. Abbott Lawrence and Whig members of the Legislature take the lead, Commonwealth, February 14. they called a State convention to meet at Faneuil Hall February 16; but though open to all, only Free Soilers took part in its proceedings. The speakers were Wilson, Burlingame, and Theodore Parker. A letter from Sumner was read. The mention of his name, according to the report, was greeted with deafening applause. Wilson, referring to Everett's unsatisfactory speech, said that Massachusetts had not yet spoken in the Senate, but that Sumner would utter her voice. Mr. Adams, who had

as a reality, it seems to be like a question before a debating club. I first learned from the New York papers that my colleague is to take the floor on it. Wilson, February 12. At last Banks is elected. I was present when he was conducted to his chair. It was a proud historic moment. For the first time during years there seems to be a North. I fancied I saw the star glittering over his head. His appearance, voice, and manner were in admirable harmony with the occasion. Again, February 14:— I think Seward has made a grievous mistake by his Central American speech. He has given a new argument to those who say that he leaps upon every hobby without regard to principle. I have felt very sore towards Banks for not putting Giddings at the lead of the territorial committee. His name there would have been a proclamation to the whole country, North and South, that on slavery in the Territories we are in earnest. There is much private and public gnashing of teeth over the

at it needs to be obeyed rather than amended, etc. The city council of Boston passed a vote, February 7, declaring the senator's statement with regard to the petitioners undignified, unbecoming a senator and a citizen of Boston, and untrue. He was however sustained by several of the leading journals of the city in his comments on the petition, and he received many letters, several from the signers themselves, verifying what he had said. Works, vol. v. pp. 477-480. E. L. Pierce wrote, February 14:— Your speech in the Senate was just the thing. It was uncompromising, and therefore was right. It was brief; and no speech at this time should be long. It dealt with the present; and this is no time for historical speeches. It was temperate, as we should be; it was firm, as the occasion requires. R. W. Emerson wrote, February 27:— Peace and prosperity adhere to your truth and firmness, as they ought. I am always consoled in the bad times by your fidelity. ... May the

fearful of the abuses incident to its exercise, and doubtful whether an exigency justifying a resort to it existed in the present case. He yielded in conclusion to the opinion of Mr. Chase, the Secretary of the Treasury, that the exigency was imperative, but insisted that a remedy so full of danger must be regarded as a temporary expedient. Feb. 13, 1862. Works, vol. VI. pp. 319-345. The speech was thought to have removed the doubts as to the passage of the bill. (New York Tribune, February 14.)
