epublicans, and an earnest supporter of the impeachment. His nomination by them, notwithstanding the disadvantage to which they had been put by the impeachment proceedings, insured their success in the national election of 1868. The only hope of the Democrats was in presenting a candidate of undoubted loyalty in the Civil War,—which at one time was thought likely in the person of Chief-Justice Chase, now parted from his old associates; but that hope they threw away when they nominated Horatio Seymour. One with Sumner's ideas of what a statesman should be would not, if the choice had been left solely with him, have selected for President a military officer, however meritorious his services, who had had no civil experience. Sumner probably accepted General Grant's candidacy rather as a necessity than as a fortunate event. He is, however, not on record as objecting to it in any letter or public way; and, as far as known, he acquiesced without protest in the final decision of his p

that it is very important that the Government should possess this work, from the fact that our librarian here, Mr. Spofford, has endorsed it in the very higest way, and in addition to his indorsement, I find that the Comte de Paris says: It is a work of the greatest value, but seems beyond the strength of a single man in the limits of a single life. General Grant says: I heartily endorse the sentiments expressed by the Comte de Paris in his letter of July 27, 1883. Governor Horatio Seymour speaks in the highest terms of the work. Dr. Cogswell, the organizer and first Superintendent of the Astor Library, says: As a chronological and synchronous record of the events it is more minute and more authentic than could be formed in any other way; and as documentary material for the historian of those events it is absolutely indispensable. I need not go over the names of all the eminent men who have indorsed this work, but amongst others there is Colonel Duncan K.

se of the Democratic, or peace party. The convention which nominated McClellan and Pendleton was one of the most representative bodies that ever assembled in this country. It met in the city of Chicago on the 29th of August, 1864, with Governor Horatio Seymour, of New York, as its chairman. An idea of the temper of the convention may be gathered from an extract from one of the speeches delivered in it by Rev. C. Chauncey Burr, of New Jersey, which is as follows: We had no right to burn ousand spoons. It had been said that, if the South would lay down their arms, they would be received back into the Union. The South could not honorably lay down her arms, for she was fighting for her honor. Mr. Horace Greeley says that Governor Seymour, on assuming the chair, made an address showing the bitterest opposition to the war; but his polished sentences seemed tame and moderate by comparison with the fiery utterances volunteered from hotel balconies, street corners, and wherever s

concessions regarding constitutional questions. But the arbitrary acts, the unjust favors, the most necessary measures for defence even, the suspension of the habeas corpus, the increasing rates of taxation, added daily to the number of discontents who joined the ranks of this opposition. The elections that took place during the autumn of 1862 in ten of the States, either for the office of governor or for Representatives in Congress, soon revealed the strength of this opposition. Mr. Horatio Seymour, who had distinguished himself by the vehemence of his attacks upon the administration, was elected governor of New York. Out of one hundred and twenty-four Representatives elected, the opposition succeeded in obtaining sixty-seven, thus gaining thirty seats over the delegation elected two years before—an advantage which reduced, but did not destroy, the preponderance of the Republican party, which could always count upon the suffrages of the New England States.

Almost all of Gillmore's forces were collected on the island—namely, Terry's division, four thousand strong, and that of Seymour, including the brigades of Vogdes and Strong, the first being established a long time on the island, the second countingcked, repulsed, and obliged to retire, after abandoning two guns and burning one of his steamers. The greater part of Seymour's division, collected on the 10th, posted itself strongly on Morris Island, of which it occupied threefourths. It held te reverse. But it had been reinforced during the evening by a Georgia regiment, and when, on the 11th at daybreak, General Seymour directed two storming-columns against the fort, they were received with a terrible fire.
