Ohio as the mother of great men becomes possibly more conspicuous in war than in pence. The number nnd character of the men who were leaders on the Held between 1801 and 1SG">, whose birthplace was in Ohio or whose early training was there received, ara preeminent. Among them were such conimandcj-s us McDowell, MoThcrson, liuell. Cox, liosecrans, and aJ«o Sheridan, Sherman and Grant McCJellan went to the war from Ohio, and wus first appointed to the command of Ohio troops. It is only not to be forgotten that Hayes and Garficld won the title of "general" long before tliut of president. But these names are to me liardly so significant as the fact that one- eighth of all the federal army of the great war came from Ohio. The similarity between Ohio and Maine in having its great men political loaders is striking. .The delegation of Maine in congress, like the delegation of Ohio, has always been one of preeminent ability. George KvaiKs and William Pitt Fessenden, Lot M. Jforrill, Hannibal Hamlin and James G. Elaine —not to mention men who arc now in congress—illustrate the character of the timber which the Pine Tree stati has sent to Washington. An Ohio governor was the rivnl of the great Maine man as a candidate for the republican nomination for the presidency in 3S78, and four years later a like condition prevailed. The Ohio men won both ;n the conventions ami at the polls. Lnt tlie contrast, between the vocations and avocations of the great men of Ohio and the great meiv of Massachusetts is most striking-. One who visited Boston 20 or-SOycai-sngo wanted to sec literary men—Longfellow, Whittier, Kind-son, T.owell and Holmes. Sunnier Jld not a.ttraet the public notie-; thnt Longfellow called out, nor W.ilso;i tint of Wliittier, nor WinU'i-op that of Holmes. There are two exception;-. One. Daniel Webs-tor. Xo man probably ever filled the public eye in any state as did Webster in Massachusetts. J have he.-u-d Col, lligfg-ijjjioii say that when Webster, walked down State street,' State street seemed to stop its business, look out of the windows of counting rooms, cease its walk and turn round in order to look at the great man. Men oii(4 boys said, in bated bi-eath: "There, goes Webster!" The other exception is Wendell Phillips, great orator, who thought he was a statesman, but who helped to make the events which called into service t.he greatest of statesmen. —President Charles F.
