        Historic account of the politics relating to the 1836 elections between Martin Van Buren, William Henry Harrison, and Hugh White as viewed from the Whig party of Ohio in 1835 through the letters of a former State Senator to the US Senator, Thomas Ewing

      Archive of four autograph letters signed by “C. Hammond” dated Feb 1, Feb 8, March 30 & Dec 16, 1835. All letters are in fine condition, with the exception that the letter dated March 30 the signature has been clipped. They are written by Charles Hammond to Senator Thomas Ewing regarding political matters. The four letters are all politically charged letters regarding the elections of 1836, and show the process of the people in power in Ohio were trying to accomplish. They read in full: (1) Cincinnati, Feb 1, 1835 / Dear Ewing, The Harrison meeting of yesterday was a failure. There was but about 200 present, and there was no enthusiasm. The day was cold, but not otherwise disagreeable. The weather was, however, urged as the reason of so few being present. The proceedings were all prepared. A committee to … went out as usual and retuned. The report was brief, tame, and harmless as to others. The speeches were made. The meeting was organized about three in the afternoon, and adjourned in less than an hour. I attended for the purpose of observation and I noted very soon what was the object of the most active. You will understand it in a moment when I say they are Webster men more than two thirds of them. None of them appear as Presidents, Vice Presidents, or Secretaries. But they were the motion makers – Wm. Green, Timothy Walker, Lawyer Hodges etc. There is another thing a little remarkable. The meeting is held forth as that of the people, the common working people, the hurra boys. The conspicuous actors on the spot affect to be the tip top of our literary gentlemen. Mr. Hall of the Western Monthly, Benjamin Drake, John P. Foote of the deceased Literary Gazette etc. It was amusing to note that gentlemen talking in the name of the people about politicians and political managers. Whilst they were playing their game with hands so open that if you did not shut your eyes you would see all their cards. I have not been able to discern any ardent feeling for the general here. The administration leaders of the place give him no preference over other opposition candidates. None have moved for him that did not go with us last October. His nomination only serves to increase distraction, and I begin to feel as tho the battle is lost before even the muster of the troops is begun. McLean is coldly received. No second is yet made to our Ohio nomination, and this move for Harrison very much weakens its force. In my opinion one thing only can save us – the voluntary withdrawal of both Clay & Webster. Neither of them can be elected, yet their respective partizens obstruct every movement adverse to what they esteem the interest of their respective favorites. If no withdrawal can take place, I think a congressional caucus ought to be resorted to – If that cannot be made effective, the party may as well be considered as dissolved. Its continuance serves only to strengthen the administration by enforcing unanimity among the household of the palace. / Yours sincerely, C. Hammond *This second letter refers to the assassination attempt made on the life of President Andrew Jackson. On January 30, 1835, the first attempt to kill a sitting President of the United States occurred when Jackson was leaving the Capitol, Richard Lawrence, an unemployed housepainter from England, aimed a pistol at Jackson, which misfired. Lawrence then pulled out a second pistol, which also misfired. (2) Cincinnati, Feb 8, 1835 / Dear Ewing, /There is great apathy prevalent here in respect to public affairs – The expositions of the post office abuses excite little attention, and even the attack on the hero had created but a very slight sensation. We received the account of it, in the N. Intelligence of Jan 31, on Thursday evening, by the river, just as our next days paper was going to press. It was immediately put in type and without diffusing the news – The paper was on the press about 8 oclock and I took one and went to a much resorted coffee house to witness what would be the impression – some twenty persons were congregated, engaged in playing domino, backgammon & drafts or looking on at the games – I announced my intelligence – there was no rants – no expression of interest – no inquisitiveness for particulars – One or two of the players looked up, but the others exclaimed, “Come, it is your play, go on” So much for news of an attempt to appropriate our hero – “the greatest & the best of men” – I attempt no explanation. I give the fact for what it is worth, with the additional one, that it would seem to have been a totally fair sample of public feeling here. Twice I wrote to you, Feb 1. I have observed in various papers, suggestions, in favor of the opposition in Congress, agreeing upon a candidate for the Presidency before they separate. I have seconded the suggestion, by an editorial in the Gazette and it has been well received. I am thoroughly persuaded that more than four fifths of the opposition would prefer this course, and I do not believe any more would be as likely to reconcile all. The nominations of so many cannot but occasion divisions. The sooner measures are taken to arrest them, the easier it will be to heal their divisions – the less hope is excited the less the feelings of rivalry, among candidates and their friends will take root – One thing seems certain to me, if all cannot now be reconciled & united, they never can be . If harmony of feeling and action is unattainable the sooner we know it the better. I can see no hopes for Mr. Webster. In New York and Pennsylvania, the din of federalism will be as the Shirt of Nusses - Opposition to the war will be the same in the West, & in the South the proclamation and the Forse bill – The chance for Mr. Clay is better than for Mr. Webster – the difficulty in respect to him, we all feel, and whilst regret & deprecate it, we have too much reason to fear that it is inseparable – My opinion is that McLean stands better than either of them; but there is a haven of great bitterness against him among the Whigs of the whole West, and I am fearful that both Webster & Clay feel insufferable objections to him. There is no evidence in the general reception of Harrisons nomination, that he would be well received – the intelligence of the country cannot respond to it – They have had enough of Military Chieftains – B W Leigh I am persuaded presents the fairest prospect for concern trusting all parties & sections – His recent re-election is a strong indication from Virginia. None of the impracticable objections against the others I have named exist as to him - I have given the whole matter much reflection for a long time and looking at matters as they now stand. I would say Leigh for President & Samuel Belle of N. Hampshire, would be a judicious nomination. We are visited with a spell of most severe cold – the thermometer has been lower than for several years ranging much of the time from zero to ten below. The health of the City is generally good – /Sincerely yours, C. Hammond (3) Cincinnati March 30. /Dear Ewing, / Was there no portion of the documents accompanying Tyler! Bank report published? I have been too unlucky as to get none. Neither have I received any of the documents accompanying the Post office report in the House. Of the Poindexter report I have no copy at all - Can you supply me with all or any of them? Our Buckeyes are anxious you should make one of them on April 7 – If not very inconvenient. You ought to be here – Having plumped into the vortex of politics you should avail yourself of all prosper opportunities to multiply friends. An occasion better than this may not again offer. Personally, you are known here to very few. A strong prejudice has been excited against you. Your personal presence and personal intercourse cannot fail to diminish this. That you are a native of the West is not known so generally as it might be. That fact ascertained and a complying with the body of the nesters that will be here congregated will infuse into many the affection and the pride that forms the Esprit de Core I have no doubt the celebration will be highly respectable and deeply interesting. /Yours sincerely (Signature was clipped out) (4) Columbus, Dec. 16, 1835/ Dear Ewing, /Matters proceed here very smoothly. I can give you no news. The Presidents message is a veritable hotchpotch of demagoguism. The French affair cuts a most farcical figure. I dissent totally, from the mass of Editorial notices. There is no war in it perceptible to my vision. It is mere humbuggery. Ever necessary apology is made preceding the vaporing that he will make none and that is a shallow piece of special pleading in itself. The recall of the cheque is a mere set off against last winters recall of the French Minister. Is not that your reading? An adjustment is fully expected and the idea is purposed of making the people believe that France has been frightened into compliance. Why should the creditors be made the victims either of all this maneuvering or of the point of honor, if it is really to be made? I suggest the propriety of moving that the American Government pay the creditor and they make the controversy truly a material one. As well do this with your surplus millions or waste it in warlike preparations, fortifying or naval. Allow me to ask your attention forthwith to a small private matter. There is a case in the Supreme Court S. Sprigg & other plaintiffs in error vs Mount Pleasant Bank. Will you ascertain where it heads on the docket and advise me. If the record is printed obtain a copy and forward it to me here – with Direction to send it to Cincinnati, if I have left here. I expect to remain here until in Jany. Be so good as to sick(?) the Senator as far as you can and oblidge (sic) me in this matter. / Yours truly, /C. Hammond The case as was decided in 1836, regarding the loan of $2,100 from the bank to the plaintiffs challenging the bank on the interest charged after payment was not made in time. Charles Hammond (1779 – 1840) was an attorney, journalist and early Ohio political leader. Hammond became interested in the political issues of the state. Between 1813 and 1822, he was elected first to the Ohio Senate and then to the Ohio House of Representatives. His greatest interest was in judicial matters and from 1823 to 1838, Hammond served as the reporter of the Ohio Supreme Court. During his tenure as court reporter, he published the first nine volumes of Reports of Cases in the Supreme Court of Ohio. Hammond continued to practice law for the rest of his life. He became well known for his position defending the state in the United States Supreme Court case, Osborn v. Bank of the United States (1824). Hammond argued that Ohio had the authority to tax the National Bank of the United States because it was a business that competed with other businesses in the state. Although Ohio lost the case, Hammond's was recognized as an excellent lawyer. Chief Justice John Marshall complemented Hammond's "remarkable acuteness and accuracy of mind." In addition to practicing law, Hammond also had an interest in journalism. Living in St. Clairsville, he edited the Ohio Federalist from 1812 to 1818. After moving to Cincinnati in 1826, Hammond became the editor of the Cincinnati Gazette. He continued to manage the newspaper and write editorials about constitutional law until his death on April 3, 1840. Thomas Ewing, Sr. (December 28, 1789 – October 26, 1871) was a National Republican and Whig politician from Ohio. He served in the U.S. Senate as well as serving as the Secretary of the Treasury and the first Secretary of the Interior.

First edition of Schwerd's seminal paper on the diffraction from the fundamental laws of wave theory.F. M. Schwerd, a pioneer of the early Fraunhofer diffraction, studied the intensity diffraction pattern of a circular aperture, also known as Airy disc.Schwerd's theory presented in the present paper was highly influential. Max Von Laue, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1914 for his discovery of the diffraction of X-rays by crystals, wrote in his autobiography: "Only shortly before this, when writing an article for Enzyklopaedie der mathematischen Wissenschaften, I had given the old theory of diffraction by an optical grating, which went back to Schwerd (1835), a new formulation in order that by applying the equation of the theory twice over, the theory of diffraction by a cross-grating could be obtained. I had only to write out this equation three times, corresponding to the three periodicities of a space lattice, so as to obtain the interpretation of the new discovery". (Max von Laue).Even though Schwerd published many articles and teaching books for high school, non can be measured in importance with the present work. Since Fresnel had reduced the interference of transverse vibrations in the first quarter of the 19. century, nothing of importance was published until Schwerd theoretically described the colour phenomenon when light is being deflected by obstacles from their straight path and brought to mutual interference. "Schwerd, though not well known to modern students, has had a great influence on optics through his monumental book on diffraction ... Die Beugungserscheinungen which he wrote in two years' spare time, is the classic comprehensive treatise on Fraunhofer diffraction ... Fraunhofer gave the laws which follow from his experiments but neither he nor J. F. W. Herschel developed the theory. This was done first by Schwerd and was viewed as a great triumph for wave theory over the emission theory of light. (Hoover, Richard B. and Franklin S. Harris, Jr..

Schwerd's Monumental Work on Fraunhofer Diffraction, Applied Optics, Vol. 8, Issue 11, pp. 2161-2164 (1969)).Honeyman: No. 2830, 2831 - Poggendorff, II, p. 878

With a total of 5 engraved plates, (these with small and neat embossed unlinked library name), London, [The Royal Society], 1835, 1838. * Sir Charles Lyell (1797-1875), one of the greatest names in early geology, was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1826. By 1827 he had already begun to plan his chief work, The Principles of Geology. The subsidiary title, "An Attempt to Explain the Former Changes of the Earth's Surface by Reference to Causes now in Operation," gives the keynote of the task to which Lyell devoted his life. The first volume of the Principles of Geology appeared in 1830, and the second in January 1832. Received at first with some opposition, so far as its leading theory was concerned, the work had ultimately a great success, and the two volumes had already reached a second edition in 1833 when the third, dealing with the successive formations of the earth's crust, was added. Between 1830 and 1872 eleven editions of this work were published, each so much enriched with new material and the results of riper thought as to form a complete history of the progress of geology during that interval. The Antiquity of Man, appeared in 1863, and ran through three editions in one year. In this he gave a general survey of the arguments for man's early appearance on the earth, derived from the discoveries of flint implements in post-Pliocene strata in the Somme valley and elsewhere; he discussed also the deposits of the Glacial epoch, and in the same volume he first gave in his adhesion to Darwin's theory of the origin of species. In 1834 he made an excursion to Denmark and Sweden, the result of which was his Bakerian lecture to the Royal Society "On the Proofs of the gradual Rising of Land in certain Parts of Sweden."

"Blanka, tragedi", "Demosthenes, sorgespel", "Ode till Napoleon" och "Till de återkommande svalorna". Andra delen innehåller statsvetenskapliga och juridiska skrifter och inlägg, bl.a. om tryckfrihet och domstolväsendet. Anders Lindeberg (1789-1849) var utgivare av "Stockholms posten" från 1821 till 1833, då den fick läggas ned p.g.a. dålig ekonomi. Ett av hans största intressen var teatern, han ville bl.a. reformera Kungliga teatern och om detta inte lyckades upprätta en privat teater, fri från statligt förmyndarskap. Detta visade sig omöjligt. Lindeberg ingav 1834 en skrivelse till JO där han beskyllde kungen för att handla lagstridigt och egennyttigt i fråga om teatermonopolet samt erinrade om 25-årsminnet av den dag då en svensk kung störtades för att han illa vårdat sitt lands intressen. Han åtalades för majestätsbrott och dömdes till döden. Han benådas emellertid till tre år på fästning men vägrade godta detta, utan anhöll istället om att bli halshuggen på sin födelsedag den 8 november, tillika dagen för Stockholms blodbad. Regeringen räddade sig genom att utfärda en amnesti till åminnelse av 24-årsdagen av Karl Johans ankomst till Sverige och Lindeberg blev fri under farsartade former. Han öppnade 1842, utan tillstånd, Nya teatern vid Kungsträdgården och lyckades driva den några år innan han av bl.a. ekonomiska skäl var tvungen att ge upp

Originaltrykket af dette, vel nok det smukkest kolorerede danske blomsterværk. Værket er af største sjældenhed og blev kun trykt i et ganske begrænset oplag.

Således anfører Carl Christensen i "Den Danske Botaniks Historie", Bd. 1, p. 212, at "de fleste Eksemplarer har færre tavler (færre end 306), f.Eks. det i K (Det kgl.

The attractive plates... are conservative in style and reminiscent in both design and colouring of the late eighteenth century."
