One of the sick soldiers, to whom Elliot had been kind, on witnessing this treatment, told him if he would lay the case before Gen. Buell he would get redress. Elliot answered, I look for my redress to the Southern army. In New Orleans, where General B. F. Butler exercised authority, the services of the churches were interrupted by the arrest and deportation of ministers. The following appeared in a Northern paper as an item of news: The three disloyal Episcopal clergymen, Rev. Dr. Goodrich, Rev. Mr. Fulton, and Rev. Dr. Leacock, who have been forwarded to this city from New Orleans by Gen. Butler, staid at the Astor House until yesterday afternoon, when they were turned over to the custody of the United States Marshal, who will consign them to Fort Lafayette. The offence of these ministers was that in the Sunday service they had omitted the prayer for the President of the United States. The following scene is a specimen of what occurred in many parts of the South un

te Duke of Gloucester he styled a d—d bore and fool, and told an odd story of the duke extracting at table from Wilberforce, by means of blunt and princely impertinence, the account of Necker offering his daughter, Madame de Stael, in marriage to Pitt. He also mentioned that, at the time Lord Chatham made his celebrated speech against employing Indians, Speech of Nov. 18, 1777, in reply to Lord Suffolk, who had justified the use of all the means which God and Nature put into our hands. Goodrich's Select British Eloquence, p. 138. Lord Bute had in his possession letters from Chatham, when William Pitt, in which he boasted of employing Indians successfully, and exclaimed, Sing lo Poean! by means of Indians we have got the trick.

he Compromise, or a renewal of agitation upon the subject of slavery. Ante, p. 194. At the beginning of the next session, in December, 1851, the caucus of Whig members affirmed, almost unanimously, the Compromise Acts to be a final settlement, in principle and substance, of the dangerous and exciting subjects which they embrace. The Whig members from Massachusetts were reported to have voted in caucus as follows: for the Compromise, G. T. Davis, Duncan, and Thompson; against it, Fowler, Goodrich, and Scudder. The House, April 5, 1852, by a vote of one hundred to sixty-five, declared the Compromise—laying emphasis on the Fugitive Slave Act—to be a final adjustment and permanent settlement. In June, 1852, in conventions held in Baltimore, the Democrats nominated Franklin Pierce for President, whose only conspicuous merit was subserviency to slavery; and the Whigs, General Winfield Scott. The Whig convention, controlled by considerations of availability, set aside Fillmore, who bett

tempting it; and none that he could not so master as to state it, if he pleased, in terms of monosyllables. For all these merits he paid one high and inexorable penalty,--the utter absence of all immediate or dazzling success. His publisher, Goodrich, tells us, in his Reminiscences, Vol. II., p 269. that Hawthorne and Willis began to write together in The Token, in 1827, and that the now-forgotten Willis rose rapidly to fame, while Hawthorne's writings did not attract the slightest attenutiful prose ever published this side of the Atlantic,--the author of The Gentle Boy. New-England Magazine, October, 1834, p. 331. For twenty years he continued to be, according to his own statement, the obscurest man of letters in America. Goodrich testifies that it was almost impossible to find a publisher for Twice-told tales in 1837, and I can myself remember how limited a circle greeted the reprint in the enlarged edition of 1841. When Poe, about 1846, wrote patronizingly of Hawthorne

Custom-House fraud. --Eugene A. Kozlay has been arrested in New York, on the charge of committing the recent fraud discovered in the Custom-House in that city. Kozlay was a clerk in the warehousing department of the Custom-House, and had charge of the books of the warehouse where Goodrich & Walker had stored their invoice of silks. Suspicion was directed towards him from the fact that the permit was evidently filled out in his handwriting, slightly disguised, and was written with the exact shade of blue ink that he ordinarily used. There was also a slight mistake in the warehousing book copied into the permit. The prisoner denies the charge, and says that the filling out is a forgery. Mr. Kozlay is a Hungarian, and came here in Kossuth's suite.
