llow Gen. Grant got into the War. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 4 August 1865

llow Gen. Grant got into the War. The well known correspondent of the Boston Journal, who writes under the signature of 44 Burleigh," thus relates the Btory of Grant's re-entrance in the United States army, at the outbreak of the rebellion : Four years this very month, Mrs. Grant lived in her quiet home in Galena. Her husband was Mr. Grant,the leather dealer, a plain, modest, reliable man, without much apparent force, who attracted very little attention anyway. The war had commenced. The flag had been shot away from Sumter, and shot out of a rebel cannon at Memphis. One morning Vr. Grant called on Senator Washburne,who resides in Galena. He told Mr. W. that he did not feel right—that he could not sleep nights, that he felt that lie was not doing his duty. Washburne asked him what was the matter. Mr. Grant replied : "1 am doing nothing for my country. I have been educated at the nation's expense; but here I ani at home doing nothing. 1 don't know what to do. lam no politician. I don'...

Joliu Mitcliell. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 11 August 1865

Joliu Mitcliell. Ihe career of the above named individual has been a strange one. Twenty y<,*ars ago he was one of the anti-England ! editors in Ireland, and by far the most j powerful of them all. Some of his articles against the British Government were almost terrific in their denunciatory eloquence. He and others more influential , than himself got up a rebellion, which j was speedily put down, and one of the results was their banishment to a British penal colony. By means which were justly regarded as involving a violation of parole, he effected his escape and made his way to this country. He established a paper in New York and conducted it with much ability, but gave offence by his advocacy of slavery as a divine institution and was j constrained to give up his position. He | went to the South and undertook one or two newspaper enterprises there, but, notwithstanding his talent and his uniform zctl for the South against the rest of the country, he failed. A fter the ...

Madison and Marshall. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 11 August 1865

Madison and Marshall. Miss Martineau is helping to corrcct public sentiment in England and turn it in favor of the North, by giving reminiscences of her visit to America in 1835. Prominent Southern men spoke with frankness of tho evils of shivery, and looked with foreboding to the future. She says of Judge Marshall: He was eighty-three—as bright-eyed and warm-hearted as ever, while as dignified a judge as evor filled the highest seat |in the highest Court of any country. He 1 said he saw Virginia the leading State for half his life; he had s«en her becoming the second, and sink to be, I think, the fifth. More than this, there was no arresting her decline if her citizens did not put an end to slavery, and he saw no signs of any intention to do so, east of the mountains, at least. He had seen whole groups of estates, populous in his time, lapse into waste, He had seen agriculture exchanged for human stockbreeding, and keenly felt the degradation. The forest has run over the fine old e...
