Caleb Cushing1

M, b. 17 January 1800, d. 2 January 1879
     Caleb Cushing was born on 17 January 1800 in Salisbury, Massachusetts.1 He was the son of John Newmarch Cushing and Lydia Dow.1,2 He graduated from Harvard in 1817, pursued a post-graduate course in mathematics, moral philosophy and law, 1817-19, and was tutor in mathematics and natural philosophy, 1820-21. He then engaged as law clerk in the office of Ebenezer Mosley of Newburyport, and was admitted to the bar in 1822. In 1825, 1833, 1834, 1846 and 1850 he was a representative in the state legislature from Newburyport, and in 1826 a state senator from Essex county. He was a Whig representative in the 24th, 25th, 26th and 27th congresses, 1835-43. In the disruption of the party incident to the accession of President Tyler, Mr. Cushing supported the administration and came to be classed as a Democrat. President Tyler sent his name to the senate as Secretary of the Treasury, but he was refused confirmation on political grounds. The President in 1843 appointed him commissioner to China to negotiate a treaty with that empire, enlarging his powers to envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary, and in 1844 authorizing him to treat also with Japan. He was successful in negotiating a treaty and establishing regular diplomatic relations with the celestial empire and in 1844 he returned to America by way of Mexico, thus completing the circumnavigation of the globe. In 1846 he was elected by both parties a state representative from Newburyport. He appealed to the Massachusetts legislature to appropriate $20,000 to equip a regiment of volunteers for the Mexican war. Failing to obtain the appropriation, he, with the aid of friends, contributed the sum needed, and he went to Mexico as colonel of the regiment, being promoted brigadier-general soon after his arrival at the seat of war. While in Mexico he was nominated by the Democrats of Massachusetts for governor of the state and was again nominated in 1848, but in both elections was defeated by George N. Briggs, the Whig candidate. In 1850 he was again a member of the state legislature and was mayor of Newburyport, 1851-52. He was appointed an additional justice of the supreme court of the state in 1852 and on March 4, 1853, he was appointed by President Pierce attorney-general in his cabinet. At the close of the Pierce administration he was state representative from Newburyport three successive terms. At the meeting of the Democratic national convention in Charleston, S.C., April, 1860, Mr. Cushing was made permanent chairman and left the convention with the other northern Democrats who subsequently met in Baltimore, Md., and nominated Stephen A. Douglas as their candidate for the presidency. President Buchanan appointed him in December, 1860, a confidential commissioner to South Carolina to determine the disposition of the people toward reconciliation. He supported the administration of Mr. Lincoln, offering his services to Governor Andrew "in any capacity, however humble, in which it may be possible for me to contribute to the public weal in the present critical emergency," and was entrusted with various confidential missions both by the President and by the cabinet officials at 'Washington. In 1866 he was a member of the commission appointed to revise and codify the laws of congress. He was sent to Bogota, S.A., in 1868, by Secretary Seward, to negotiate with the United States of Colombia, and successfully accomplished the mission. He was with Morrison Waite and William M. Evans counsel for the United States at Geneva in 1871 in settling the Alabama claims. In 1878, upon the death of Chief Justice Chase, President Grant appointed Mr. Cushing chief justice of the United States, but his name was not favorably received by the senate and before a vote was taken Mr. Cushing declined the appointment. He was U.S. minister to Spain, 1874-77. He received from Harvard the degree of A.M. in 1820 and that of LL.D. in !852. He was an overseer of Harvard, 1852-56, and was a member of the Massachusetts historical society and a fellow of the American academy of arts and sciences. Among his works are: History of the Town of Newburyport (1826); The Practical Principles of Political Economy (1826); Historical and Political Review of the Late Revolution in France (2 vols., 1833); Reminiscences of Spain (2 vols., 1833); Growth and Territorial Progress of the United States (1839); Life of William H. Harrison (1840) and The Treaty of Washington (1873); and frequent contributions to magazines and reviews. Caleb Cushing married Caroline Wilde, daughter of Hon. Samuel Sumner Wilde, on 23 November 1824 in Newburyport, Massachusetts. Caleb Cushing died on 2 January 1879 in Newburyport, Massachusetts, at the age of 78 s.p.1
