Senator Sumner

Senator Sumner   Mr. Sumner left Boston last evening, for Washington, by way of Fall River.  Though much improved in health, he is still regarded by his physicians as an invalid.  He has never at any moment given up the idea of taking his Senate during the present session; and he is unwilling that Massachusetts should suffer by his absence, when important questions, in which she is interested. Maybe pressed for decision. He will be there to vote on the Tariff.  He has engaged a passage to France in the steamer Fulton, which leaves New York March 7th, and will spend the summer in Europe.  Boston Telegraph, Tuesday.
