[Footnote 1336:  I have made an effort to identify writers in Blackwood’s, but am informed by the editors that it is impossible to do this for the period before 1870, old correspondence having been destroyed.]

[Footnote 1337:  July, 1861.]

[Footnote 1338:  The Atlantic Monthly for November, 1861, takes up the question, denying that democracy is in any sense “on trial” in America, so far as the permanence of American institutions is concerned.  It still does not see clearly the real nature of the controversy in England.]
