man, member of the House, said two years later (July 9, 1856) that Sumner merited chastisement for the speech. Sumner described, on his return home, to his friend Dana, the Senate in executive session, as it seemed at that period, like the cabin of a pirate, where the only test of fitness for office was fidelity to the slave-power. Adams's Biography of Dana, vol. i. pp. 288, 289. Clay's proposition to send him to Coventry was thought more practicable. It had Sumner's co-operation to this extent, that he had not from this time of his own accord any personal relations with his five assailants. Without any dread of another encounter, the next day he offin the speech the heaviest blow its author had struck the slaveholding oligarchy, and again recalled with pleasure his own part in placing him in the Senate. Charles A. Dana, of the New York Tribune, approved it as a splendid excoriation and incineration of those fellows. Rev. A. A. Livermore gratefully acknowledged the noble, lo

ajos Batthyanyi, the Hungarian patriot. On his return, while at Mr. Furness's in Philadelphia, he called with Mr. Allibone on an old friend, Henry D. Gilpin, an invalid with but few days in store, cheering him with a report of the kind inquiries made concerning him by the Grotes and other English friends. He declined at the time two invitations in New York city,—one to address the New England Society, dressed by Mr. Evarts; and the other to speak in the Academy of Music, given by Greeley, C. A. Dana, H. C. Bowen, and Oliver Johnson. Warned by physicians and friends to enter slowly into the excitement of debate, Among bills and resolutions offered by him, not elsewhere noted, were these: for the substitution of simple declarations for custom-house oaths (Works, vol. IV. p. 441): for the promotion of the safety of passengers on steamers between New York and San Francisco (Works, vol. IV. p. 455); for limiting the liability of shipowners; for preventing violence and crime on board

ein Emma Lazarus (1849-87) was held by such men as Emerson, Gilder, Stedman, Channing, Eggleston, Dana, and Godkin due alone to those poems and essays which did more than the writings of any other Amelue. It added grace, without losing force; the deft touch replaced the heavy or awkward stroke. Dana had begun his journalistic career on the New York Tribune under Greeley, where he was managing edant figure until 1862. He became editor of the Sun early in 1868. What he meant to do, and did, Dana announced thus: The Sun . . . will study condensation, clearness, point, and will endeavour to pr whole world's doings in the most luminous and lively manner. In certain other respects, also, Dana and the Sun were characteristic of the new era. The great majority of papers were still servile ps were unfriendly to the idea. Greeley in the later fifties had no sympathy with the proposal of Dana, then his managing editor, to issue a Sunday picture paper. The essence of the modern Sunday sup

ew York Times, in successive leaders, took positive ground against negro suffrage as any part of the reconstruction. March 2; June 3, 19, 21, 23, 24, 26, 28, 29. The Cincinnati Commercial printed eleven years later letters found in Andrew Johnson's office at Greenville, Tenn., after his death, which approved his policy of reconstruction at the outset. Among them were letters and telegrams from George Bancroft, James Gordon Bennett, Henry J. Raymond, Simon Cameron, and W. H. Seward. Charles A. Dana, then an editor in Chicago, wrote to Sumner that it was advisable to keep with the President as far as possible in order to prevent the Democrats coming into power through any unnecessary quarrel among ourselves. His journal, the Chicago Republican, justified President Johnson's exclusion of the colored people from his plan of reconstruction. John W. Forney of the Philadelphia Press, a partisan of the President, who had come also to be an admirer of Sumner, begged him, in view of all

otel, in Boulogne, says a recent traveler, it seemed to me that all the men were soldiers, and that women did all the work. How pitiful! How shameful! A million of men under arms! The army, the elite of the nation! One man of every ten to keep the other, nine in order! O infinite and dastardly imbecility! I need not say that the Tribune plunged into the European contests headlong. It chronicled every popular triumph with exultation unbounded. One of the editors of the paper, Mr. Charles A. Dana, went to Europe to procure the most authentic and direct information of events as they transpired, and, his letters over the well-known initials, C. A. D., were a conspicuous and valuable feature of the year. Mr. Greeley wrote incessantly on the subject, blending advice with exhortation, jubilation with warning. In behalf of Ireland, his sympathies were most strongly aroused, and he accepted a place in the Directory of the Friends of Ireland, to the funds of which he contributed lib

g, turning over the broad black leaves swiftly, pausing seldom, lingering never. The letter R. attached to the literary notices apprises us that early in 1849, Mr. George Ripley began to lend the Tribune the aid of his various learning and considerate pen. Bayard Taylor, returned from viewing Europe a-foot, is now one of the Tribune corps, and this year he goes to California, and opens up the land of gold to the view of all the world, by writing a series of letters, graphic and glowing. Mr. Dana comes home and resumes his place in the office as manager-general and second-in-command. During the disgraceful period of Re-action, William Henry Fry, now the Tribune's sledge-hammer, and the country's sham-demolisher, then an American in Paris, sent across the Atlantic to the Tribune many a letter of savage protest. Mr. G. G. Foster served up New York in savory slices and dainty items. Horace Greeley confined himself less to the office than before; but whether he went on a tour of obs

ck's advice, made dispositions or appointments that Grant did not approve, but if subsequently Grant wished these steps reversed, Stanton never objected. During Early's invasion of Maryland telegraphic communication between Washington and City Point was interrupted for a while, and great confusion and alarm prevailed at the capital. Several movements were ordered without Grant's knowledge, all of which proved abortive. In this emergency Stanton finally appealed to Grant. He directed Charles A. Dana, then Assistant Secretary of War, to say to Grant that unless he gave positive directions and enforced them the result would be deplorable and fatal. When Grant placed Sheridan in command in the Valley he did it knowing that his own confidence in that officer's capacity was not shared by the Government, but neither Lincoln nor Stanton interfered, and all this, though Stanton was an imperious man, fond of power, used to authority, and never doubting his own judgment in civil affairs.
