This volume has been prepared on the same general plan as the previous volumes of the Series, and, it is hoped, will be found as worthy of confidence and approval.
In its pages have been gathered a great variety of political facts, which at once attest the activity of our political life during the past two years, and indicate the directions of it. Several of the Chapters have great political importance, and all of them are worthy of attention. The IVth, VHIth and IXth may be indicated as furnishing special attractions to the student of our system—its principles, its modes, and its growth.
The Chapters devoted to the record of parties on pending questions contain, I hope, all the available facts necessary to judge them, distinctly classified, and carefully stated.
In the votes given, Republicans are printed in Roman, Democrats in Italic, and Independents in Small Caps; and gentlemen are indicated according to their party relations at the time of voting.
No effort has been spared to ensure accuracy and completeness, and the volume is submitted to the public in the hope that it will meet the want which it is designed to supply, and be accepted as a useful contribution to political history.'
