Hon. Charles Sumner arrived in Boston last week from his tour of four months in the West. He returned through New Hampshire and Maine, and walked down Mt. Washington on Monday. During his tour he visited every free State in the Union, except California, three of the slave States, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Missouri. He is in excellent health and spirits.
Senator Wilson returned to Massachusetts Wednesday, from a visit to Maine and Vermont. Within six days he traveled 840 miles, and made seven speeches, occupying in all some twelve hours. On Monday he started for Michigan, and will be absent two or three weeks.
