me, on what of earth remained in the form which so lately enshrined the noble spirit. Then mournfully the parting bugle bade Its farewell o'er the grave. California claimed her hero and statesman, and his ashes now repose on the calm shore of that ocean which washes the western base of the empire for whose glory he lived anof the most superb monuments which the genius of Art has erected to human greatness. On the 27th of March (1874), I wrote to Hon. A. A. Sargent, Senator from California, to learn the present condition of Col. Baker's grave; and in reply, I received the following interesting information from Mr. Robert J. Stevens, son-in-law of provoked by the insulting words of the Catiline whom for a few days longer Heaven had condemned our patience to tolerate as a Senator of the United States, the California Senator, rising in his place, said,— There will be some graves reeking with blood, watered by the tears of affection. There will be some privation. There
words, seemed to come unbidden, and range in harmonious forms—as in the walls of ancient Thebes each stone took its proper place of its own accord, moved only by the music of a lyre. * * His oratory was graceful, sharp, and flashing, like a cimeter; but his argument was powerful and sweeping like a battery. Not content with the brilliant opportunities of this chamber, he accepted a commission in the army, vaulting from the Senate to the saddle, as he had already leaped from Illinois to California. * * His career as a general was short, though shining. * * He died with his face to the foe—and he died so instantly that he passed from the service of his country to the service of his God. It is sweet and becoming to die for country: such a death, sudden, but not unprepared for, is the crown of the patriot soldier. But the question is painfully asked, who was the author of this tragedy, now filling the Senate Chamber, as it has already filled the country, with mourning? There is a
XXXVIII. On the 19th of January, 1862, Senator McDOUGALL, of California, had introduced into the Senate a series of Resolutions concerning the attempt to subject the Republic of Mexico to French authority, in which the following peremptory clause appeared:—That it is the duty of this Republic to require of the government of France, that her armed forces be withdrawn from the territories of Mexico, and on the 3d of February, when the Resolutions came up for consideration, Mr. McDOUGALL madlated to aid and comfort the Rebellion, just in proportion to its adoption. Sufficient unto the lay is the evil thereof. The present war is surely enough, without adding war with France. It is sufficient that the policy of the Senator from California, without any certainty of good to Mexico, must excite the hostility of France, and give to the Rebellion army and fleets, not to mention that recognition and foreign intervention which we deprecate. Let us all unite to put down the Rebellion
ed to sway might become a military empire, with all powers, executive, legislative, and even judicial, derived from one man in Washington. Could any prophet have foreseen clearer what actually followed in so atrociously unrepublican a form, and in violation of all the Republican souvenirs of our country in the case of Louisiana? It would have been well enough if this tremendous power at Washington had limited itself, as it had done in the appointment of Military Governors in Mexico and California after their conquest, and before peace. But to appoint Military Governors, and prolong their power in a conquered country, beyond all civil jurisdiction, beyond an undoubted necessity, and their appointment for temporary purposes by the urgent necessity of suppressing a Rebellion—the distinction must be very clearly drawn, and the civil power must come in the first moment the opportunity occurred, and the military power be withdrawn. Then comes in the power of Congress to establish Pro
