to Norfolk, Va., and resided there until 1870, with the excep-
tion ol two years when he was consul at Matanzas, and his
taniily resided as refugees at Rockland, Me. The family went
to Rockland, 2a i Aug., but lie received the appointment of con-
sul on the 1st of that month, 1861.

He was one of the - Bell and Everett " electors, and during
he whole campaign made strong union speeches, so that ho wa?
known throughout the State as one who was opposed to reces-
sion in any form. Virginia went for Bell and Everett. In the
spring of lSbl a very important case, involving nearly half a
million dollars, in which he was counsel, came up in Washing-
ton v irgmia had not then seceded, hut that event was ex-
pected daily to take place. Mr. Chandler obtained a permit
trom (ren. Gwyne, then in command at Norfolk, to enable him
to -return; and he went to Washington. Hurrying through
with his case as rapidly as possible, he returned and arrived at
fortress Monroe only to find that the obstructions placed in the
river the night previous would prevent all persons from reach-
ing Norfolk m that direction. His only way of getting there
was to takea carriage as far as Yorktown, whence he could o-o
by cars to Richmond, and thence home to Norfolk. It was at
fortress Monroe, at this time, that Gen. B. F. Butler tried to
get trom him some information of the Confederate forces At
lorktown Mr. Chandler was arrested by the Rebels under the
Rev. Gen. D. H. Hill, of North Carolina. His horse and car-
nage were confiscated, and he was thrown into jail, where he
remained for more than two days in a cell with a stone floor,
without food .drink, or even a blanket to protect him from the
cold, and subjected to the grossest insults. Frequently was he
shown a rope and told that he would be hung, which undoubted-
ly would have been his fate ^ had it not happened that a Col.
Charles Mallory, of Hampton, Va., accidentally heard of his
arrest ; and not believing it, rode down to the camp to ascertain
the facts lie went instantly to Richmond, and left no stone
unturned to effect his release. Upon Mr. CVs arrival in Nor-
to k he applied for permission to go north with his family.
After a long delay he obtained a "flag of truce" on the 23d of
June, 1861. Even then he barely escaped, for an order came
from Richmond to arrest him at ten o'clock that mornino- ■ but
fortunately the order fell into the hands of a friend who delayed
it a few minutes, so that when the oificer went to serve it the
family were steaming down the river. His family remained in

Baltimore until the 25th of August, when they went to Rock-
land, Me.

In 1863 he removed his family back to Norfolk. He was U
b. district attorney for East District of Virginia, and so rjentlv
did he administer that office that there were but few ea^es of

confiscation, and no one tried for treason ; but he was threatened
with removal from office many times because of his leniency.

He drew up, May, 1866, the indictment against Jefferson
Davis for treason against the United States, and assisted the
attorney-general in the prosecution at his trial.

He was counsel in the case of Mayor Ellyson vs. Chahoon,
for Chahoon ; and was very much injured in the shoulder by the
falling of the floor of the room of the Court of Appeals, on 27th
of April, 1870, from the great mass of people assembled to hear
the decision of the court in the case. He had not, in 1871, en-
tirely recovered the use of his hand, owing to the thickening of
the shoulder blade in uniting where it was fractured by that
fearful accident. He became insane by spells, during one of
which he drowned himself in a stream near his residence, 7
April, 1871.

While residing in Thomaston, he was commissioned justice of
the peace, 18 Feb. 1835, and of the quorum in 1844; was
chosen, 29 June, 1839, captain of the Thomaston Guards. He
resided, 1871, at No. 70 I Street, Washington, D. C. Pension
