body vote, but the majority, in
both branches, for that : ratification was
made a majority by the colored members.
And, thereupon, our House' Of. Represents

The need of a Magazine like the' "Adm.

about eleven years ago, was hailed with
mach satisfaction by those who had felt the
want of such a publication. ft at once be
came popular like "Harper's Monthly,"
though Unlike in many, respects, and from
different considerations., It took, high
ground, and each of the departmentadevoted

was sharply defined. Its held utterances on
the great political Immo of the day and
always in defence of the principles as ever
