nd society. He was in the freshness and vigor of his powers; He had become familiar with the platform; and it is remembered that as he handled one adversary after another, he seemed conscious of his strength. The other speakers were without attractions of style and manner, and, except Mr. Gray and Dr. Howe, knew very little of the subject. The meetings were prolonged during eight evenings, from half-past 7 till nearly or quite eleven, and sometimes till nearly midnight. May 28. June 2, 4, 9, 11, 16, 18, and 23. Sumner opened the debate on the first evening, occupying an hour and a half, leaving the rest of the time to three speakers who replied. A report of his speech is printed in the Boston Courier, June 1, 1847. The speech is like his later one, though going more into details on some points, and being quite severe on the meagre quality of the Society's reports, particularly the last one, which he thought a small month's work. Between its flimsy covers is all that we ha

G. Abbott; and among the latter were Wilson, Dana, Sumner, Burlingame, Charles Allen, Marcus Morton (two of the name, father and son), Amasa Walker, E. L. Keyes, Charles P. Huntington, F. W. Bird, and John M. Earle. Five of the members had been or were afterwards governors,—Briggs, Boutwell, Gardner, Banks, and Talbot. Three afterwards became United States senators, Rockwell, Boutwell, and Dawes. One (the younger Morton) became chief-justice of the State. The convention began its session May 4, and closed August 1. Robert Rantoul, father of the distinguished statesman of that name, and member of the next earlier convention of 1820, called it to order. Banks, already eminent as a presiding officer of the State House of Representatives, and since Speaker in Congress, was chosen the president. Nothing was wanting to the dignity of the assembly; its only drawback was the circumstance that its members had been chosen on strict party lines, and the majority had a distinct political e

t, and their confidence in him as the representative of the opinions and policy of Massachusetts, with the regret that Everett had failed to represent them in a critical hour. Among those who wrote their full approval was Linus Child, who had supported Winthrop in the Whig convention in 1846. Prescott wrote, I don't see but what all Boston has got round; in fact, we must call him [Sumner] the Massachusetts senator. George Livermore, of Cambridge, a merchant and a conservative Whig, wrote, May 4:— I asked an old Whig friend to-day (one who wondered last year that I could say a word in favor of Sumner when I thought you unreasonably assailed) if he had read your last speech on the Nebraska bill. Yes, said he, I have read it; and I wish every man in the country had read it. It ought to be printed in letters of gold. These are the words of a Hunker Whig, a Webster Compromise Whig. They are but the true expression of a general feeling which gladdens my heart and justifies my as

eral characteristics. Mignet's lecture may be found in Memoires de l'academie des Sciences Morales et Politiques de l'institut Imperiale de France, vol. II. pp. 1-32. It was a masterpiece, but had sallies against our country. On my return I addressed him a letter at some length, making a reclamation. In the evening went to the reception of Madame de Circourt. May 3. Appleton called and took me to the Bois de Boulogne; dined with him. Then to Lady Elgin's; then to Michel Chevalier's. May 4. This morning received a visit from M. Mignet, 1796-1884. in which he expressed himself in the handsomest terms with regard to my letter. Visited with Vattemare the library of the Institute, then the Cour des Comptes, where M. Battie, the premier president, received me very kindly, and gave orders that I should see all the archives, which are kept in a separate building, and also the rooms. The machinery of administration in France seems to be perfect. In the evening went to M. de Lama

o the question of candidate, writing to E. L. Pierce, April 20:— I enjoyed your brother's speech and your article,—both excellent. I can trust you at Chicago, for I know that you are true and earnest. Should Seward be rejected there, I fear it will cause him a pang. Douglas will not be put up at Charleston. I long for Hunter. Then will the question be fairly in issue,—on one side slavery, just, divine, permanent; on the other, unjust, barbarous, and to be abolished. And again, May 4, he wrote to Mr. Pierce, who sought his advice as a delegate elected to the Republican convention from C. F. Adams's district, as follows:— The Democratic party is a wreck bumping on the rocks, and must go to pieces. This gives to us assurance of success. If any have inclined to a candidate who did not completely represent our principles, he can find no excuse now. Von Holst, vol. VII. p. 170. We can elect any man the convention at Chicago choose to nominate. You know that I al
