An ugly sort of a letter of his,
written to Jeff Davis on the 20th of
March, 1861, has been discovered
in the archives of the rebel Con
federacy, in which Cushing intro
duced his private Secretary to the
favorable notice of the "President
of the Confederacy." This Secreta-
ry had gone over to the South De
cause, wrote Mr. Cushing, "he sees,
as you and I see, Mr Davis, that the
union of ihe States is severed, and
the Government destroyed.'" This
letter produced by Mr. Sargent, ap
pears to have taken the Senate by
surprise, and yet it is only consist
ent with what Mr. Cushing had said
an(l done down to that time. It is
also quite consistent with, hisgener
al character. We should think that
Mr. Sumner will be rather sorry that
he worked so hard to make Mr.
Cushing Chief Justice of the Su-
prerne Court. He is not proof
against personal prejudices, for or
against a man and this is not the
nrst instance which these prejudices
nave overcome his better judgment.
This letter was a lucky discovery,
as it afforded undoubted evidence
that the candidate was in sympathy
with the rebellion. The nomination
was of course withdrawn, and Mr.
Kj. settled back into ma true atti-
The Chief Justiceship. It is
already known to our readers that
the nomination of Mr. Caleb Cush
ing of Massachusetts, as minister of
Spain some days since was sent to
the Senate. They are, however, scarce
ly aware of the fact that he has since
received the nomination of Chief
Justice of the Supreme bench. His
nomination for this high office, in
view of his ability, created no snr-
nrise. but. his record would sepm t.n
be a singular one indeed from which
to draw recommendations for such a
position as that for which he is now
named. The New York Times
sums up this record as follows:

be his achievements in these di

inal pro-slavery man, a supporter of
the South and bitter opponent of

ural that he should have denounced
the reconstruction measures, over
and over again as unconstitutional.
He is particularly objectionable in
thisjrespect, because, as Chief Jus
tice, he would be called upon to
pass upon these very' reconstruction
measures, which he has already de
cided by repeated declarations. It
seems to be a mystery, why such
men as Everts, Hoar, Pierpont, and
others should be passed over, and a
man who stands before the country

The following is a copy of Caleb
Cushing's letter to Jefferson. Davis.
Washixgtox, March 20th, 1861.
Dear sir Mr. Archibald Roane.
for the last six or seven years a clerk
in the Attorney General's Office, de
sires from me a letter of introduc
tion to you and he desires it not in
a view of anticipating: administra
tive favor, but that he may have the
nonor ot your personal intercourse.
Of this, 1 take pleasure in assuring
you he is eminently worthy. A
Southern man by birth, family and
afftction, he has carefully studied
and ably discussed in Mr. De Bow's
lievit'tc and other Southern works
the lanieutable events which have
been gradually undermining and
have at lonsrth overthrown the Amer
ican Union- Whilst a, practical man,
he is also 3 ripe and. accomplished
scholar, with indeed predominating
taste and habits. Iu the discharge
of his official duties he has combined
in a singular degree the purest in
tegrity and most enlightened intelli
gence with modest contentment in
his lot, having' more than once de
clined offices of more conspicuous
employment in the public service.
He now resigns his present office
from sentiments of devotion to that
which , he can feel to be his country,
namely the Confed erate States, from
one of which Texas he has ap
pointed. I most heartily recom
mend him as a gentleman and a man
to your confidence aaid esteem, and I
am, with highest consideration, your
obedient servant. C Cushing.

this state of things was felt by all can
but it was more grievously felt by
