in New York?The New England Society
had its seventieth dinner at Delmonico's. in
New York, last night. About 300 members
of the society and guests were present. Mr.
Bailey presided, having at his right Presi
dent Grant and on his left Gen. Sherman.
Gen. Sherman, In the course of his speech in
response to the toast, "The Army and
Navy," said upon the civilization of New
England is based the civilisation of North
America, and it will remain and will govern
this continent. Referring to the result of
the late war, be declared never was there
such an example of the conquerors giving
the conquered the same rights they them
selves possessed. The moment the van
quished laid down their arms we said to
them, "Go home; go home to work for the
flag which is to be the common one over our
homes." He continued:?I say to every
southern man who will go with us heart and
hand to build up this land, they are welcome
just as if born on the very surfece of Ply
month Rock; but if they cherish any hopes
for the old conflict a storm will arise over
their heads ten times as heavy as the last
one. Gen. Sherman said this with great
clearness and emphasis, and was greeted
with great applause and waving of handker
chiefs, renewed again and again, the com
pany rising. President Grant turned to
Governor Morgan, on this expression of
Gen. Sherman, and nodded his head with
great commendatory heartiness. Gen. 8her -
man continued?I speak for the army and
navy, the men of bone, of muscle, the bone
and sinew that aggregate America.
