KITCn Or ADHIRAL ORIOOIT.
Admiral GREOoar was bom at Norwalk,
Conn., on the 9th of October, 1789, and v, as
warranted as a midshipman of the United
States navy by President Jivriasox on the
16th of January, 1809. He had been in the
merchant service from 1802, and entered the
navv after having narrowly escaped British
impressment. His first service was on board
the schooner Revenge, from which he was
transferred to the ketch Vesuvius. In April.
1811, he was promoted to acting master and
appointed to command gun vessel No. 1C2,
and attached to the Balise division.
In the spring of 1812 Midshipman Grbjort
was ordered to a Northern station, and at
the commencement of the war with England
placed under Commodore Ciuvnckt's com
mand, on Lake Ontario. Admiral OnEaoRK
participated in the attack on Kingston, No
vember, 1812, and in March, 1813. was ap
pointed acting lieutenant and flag lieutenant,
in which capacity he participated in the at
tack and capture of Little York, and also in
the capture of Fort George on the 27th of
May of the sunoyear. Commodore urfoort
was with Commodore Ciucacxt in all the
actions on Lake Ontario, and gained from
his superior the highest praise for skill and
bravery. After participating In several
fights with British war vessels on the St.
Lawrence, he was finally captured in Au
gust, 1814, by the enemy, Bent to England,
and retained as a prisoner of war until June,
1815, when he was ordered to one of the
frigates cruising against the Algennes.
In 1821 he was appointed to command the
schooner Grampus, with orders to cruise
upon the Spanish main, for the purpose of
suppressing piracy and the protection of
American commerce. In 1825, Lieutenant
Geioorv was especially selected to fit out
the frigate Brandywine for the purpose of
conveying General Lapatettk tol raiuc, and
served under Commodore Morris until the
ship arrived there.when she was placed under
his command. In 182G, Lieut. Grioort
fitted out a 64-gun ship at New York for the
Greek Government, andailed her there. In
1828 he was promoted Commander, and at
tached to the New York navy yard until
1831, when he was sent in command of the
Falmouth to cruise in the Pacific. In 1838
he was promoted Captain, and appointed to
command the North Carolina, and in 1841
was placed on the Brazilian station in the
frigate Raritan; after which, in 1845, he waa
ordered to the coast of Mexico and emp!o ed
in the blockade of that coast, where he re
mained until January, 1847.
In September, 1849, he was ordered to the
command of the squadron on the coast of
Africa, returning to the United States in
June, 1852. In May, 1852, he was placed in
COiEmand of the Boston navy yard. At the
commencement of the rebellion Commodore
Gregory proceeded to Washington and was
urgent in his demand for more active em
ployment. The records of the Navy De
partment afford ample evidence of his pro
fessional abilities as well as his patriotic dig
position. There were few, if any, in the naval
service possessed of more practical ability
than Admiral G rf.gokt. In July, 1 801 , ho as
ordered by the Navy Department to super
intend the construction of all vessels of war
built outside the United States navy j ariK
on which duty he remained until his death.
He was commissioned Rear Admiral on the
I6th of July, 1862.

NENATOn SUMNER ASKING FOR
Senator Bckkir made a speech In Boston
on Tuesday evening, in which he narrated
his difficulties in his attempts to manage
Tot Presidents his failure to accomplish his
purposes, the result being an utter dis
agreement between them. He gave hlshear
ers, among other things, a copy of the tele
graphic dispatch he sent Presideyt Joiwso
in Novembcr,18C5,(for which he forgot to pay)
giving a piece of his gigantic mind to The
President. Concerning the duty of Con
gress to " ask for more," Mr. Svmier said:
"In the first place, Congress must bo sus
tained in its conflict with the one-man power:
and in the second place, ex-rebels must not
be restored to power. Bearing these two
things In mind, the way will be easy. Of
course, the ConstItut.onal amendment must
be adopted. As far as It goes, it is well; but
It does not go far enough. More must be
done. Impartial suffrage must be estab
lulled. A homestead must be secured to
every freedmanj if In no other way, through
the pardoning power. If to these is added
education, there will be a new order of things,
witli liberty of the press, liberty of spoech,
and liberty of travel, so thot Wendell Phil
lips may speak freely in Charleston or Mobile.
There is an old English play which goes
under the name of the four "Ps." Our pres
ent desires may bo symbohzed by four Es,"
standing for emancipation, enfranchisement,
equality, and education. Let these bo se
cured, and all else will follow. I can never
cease to regret that Congress has hesitated
by proper legislation to assume a temporary
jurisdiction over thewhole rebel region. To
my mind the power was ample and unques
tionable, whether in the exercise of belliger
ent rights or in the exercise of rights derived
directly from the Constitution Itself. In this
way everything needful might hate been ac
complished. In the exercise of this just ju
risdiction the rebel communities might have
been fashioned anew, and shaped to loj alty
and virtue. The President lost a great op
portunity at the beginning; Congress has lost
another. But it is not too late. If indis
posed to assume this jurisdiction by an en
abling act constituting provisional goicrn
ments. there are manv things which Congress
insv.do. actinir directlv or Indirectlv. Act
ing indirectly, it may insist that emancipa
tion, eniranciusement, equality, ana educa
tion shall be established as a condition pre
cedent to the recognition of any State whose
institutions nave been overtures n uy reoei-
lion. Acting directly, it may, by constitu
tional amenament or by simple legislation,
fix all these forever."

Tho French Democracy autl Ihe Lin
Tbo Hon. Mr. Mangm, editor-In- cbief of
Ihe Phare de la Loire, (tho celebrated Dem
ocratic organ of France, published at Nantes,
Trance,) which initiated the project of pre
senting a gold medal to Mrs. Lincoln in com
memoration of President Lincoln, writes
from Nantes to a friend of the Lincoln fami
ly at Chicago, that in consequence of the
great number of subscriptions, the transmis
sion of tbo medal has been delayed, as it lie
came necessary to substitute for the originally
intended medals a larger one, adequate in
value to the increased amount of tho sub
scriptions. Mr. Man gin adds that the "com
memoration medal for tbe noblo widow of
tho glorious and unfortunate Lincoln" has
been already struck. He remarks that the
Imperial mint at Paris declined to do the
work, und that it was done by the Geneva
mint. Tbo medal has thus been completed
in a land of freedom. Mr. Mangm, whose
letter is dated Nantes, August 30, adds;
"As far as I am concerned, I insist that the
French Democracy should deliver, by the
hands of some of us, the s nib oho o tiering
personally to Airs. Lincoln.
Mr. Mantrin states that no individual sub
scription was to exceed ten centimes, (four1
cents,) so as io givo it an essentially popular
character; and ho admits tbat "tho workmen
of Franco have interested tbemsehes in this
testimonial with an eagerness which will
touch tho heart of her who was the wife of
tho emancipator of labor."
Under this heading the New York corre
spondent of the Boston Post writes as follows:
At No. 21 West Twelth street is located
a very fine establishment known to tbo select
few as the headquarters of the United Stutes
Sanitary Commission, where a gentleman of
elegant leisure enjoys handsomely furnished
apartments, rent free, and a salary of $5,000
tur tue penormonce oi not tery urauous u ti
tles. It in understood that tbo Commission
has a cuBh balance to its credit of something
over $200,000, and there are curious persons
who are anxious to know what use is to be
made of the same. Newspaper men who in
quire at tho Twelfth street institution, it Is
noticed, return singularly opaquo und re
ticent, as though they had neither seen nor
learned an thing, und the question is asked,
"Do they buy up anxious inquirers ?"
There is certainly a general desire to know
when and how tho affairs of the Sanitary
Commission are to be finally wound up, and
while there is not the least disposition to im
pugn the motives of the managers, there is
a curiosity to see tha finale of this great en
terprfoe accomplished in harmony with its
magnificent record In the past. As our
once famous Union Defenee Committce.nitli
all their resplendent respectability, has never
made a dctuihd report of Us millionaire col
lections and disbursements, we are all the more
solicitous that no such dubiety as becloud
tho committee's history should attach to the
noble organism whose praise Is ln all the
households of the land.

"The pyuenl of boautle to soldiers aader the act
