th, called a conference at lobby No. 13 in the State House, which was held in May, 1846, and consisted of himself, Adams, Sumner, S. C. Phillips, and Wilson. The result was the purchase of a journal already existing with a slender support, and in June the Boston Daily Whig under new auspices was issued, with Adams as editor. Reunion of the Free-Soilers of 1848, Aug. 9, 1877, pp. 20, 21. Sumner, as appears by Palfrey's diary, attended, July 23, a meeting where Palfrey, Adams. S. C. Phillips, Wch is incorporated into the text or notes. Besides these engagements, professional and juridical, I have many others,—some of which you can comprehend,—multifarious and incessant. I am now engaged to deliver the address at Schenectady College in June. Have I time to take the Whig I feel that I have not; and yet I do not like to decline. I fear that Adams May think in indifferent to his comfort and to our cause. Winthrop, while he remained Speaker, left the controversy concerning his cond

At Salem, Sept. 28, 1848. Others associated them with nullifiers, and held them up as deserving the penalties of treason. Adams, November 9, at Faneuil Hall, made a spirited retort to Winthrop's suggestion. Boston Republican, November 13. The passage of Sumner's speech at Worcester in June, in which he mentioned the secret influence that went forth from New England, especially from Massachusetts, and contributed powerfully to Taylor's nomination, and in which he referred to the unhallowed union-conspiracy, let it be called—between remote sections; between the politicians of the Southwest and the politicians of the Northeast; between the cotton-planters and flesh-mongers of Louisiana and Mississippi, and the cotton-spinners and traffickers of New England; between the lords of th

ernor Quitman's inaugural message, in January. 1850, was an harangue for disunion. They seemed to be sincere in this aggressive and threatening attitude, though it was observed at the time that their governing impulse was ambition and empire, and slavery the pretext which was used to fire the Southern heart. But it did not yet appear that the masses of the Southern people were with them in their revolutionary purpose. Meanwhile preparations were made for a convention to meet at Nashville in June. These demonstrations had an effect on the more timid of the Northern members, as appeared in the decisive vote, Feb. 4, 1850, against the Wilmot Proviso. The resolute and defiant attitude of the South and the weakening resistance of the North opened to Henry Clay, now again a senator, the opportunity to appear for another and third time in his career as a pacificator between contending sections and policies; and late in January, 1850, he presented his scheme of a comprehensive and final

e proposed to speak at an early day on the slavery question. Seward wrote at the time, Dawson raved at him [Sumner], and Mangum behaved like a Christian. Seward's Life, vol. II. p. 182. His preparation, which he had expected to complete late in June (the time he had fixed for speaking when the session began), was interrupted by an illness, not serious enough to prevent his attendance on the sessions, but disabling him from work, and enjoining abstinence from special effort and excitement. By time proceed in the full conviction that at last I shall he understood. I fear nothing. I am under no influences which can interfere with this great duty. From the time I first came here I determined to speak on slavery some time at the end of June or in July, and not before, unless pressed by some practical question. No such question has occurred, and I have been left to my original purposes. My time has now come. I wish I could speak this week; but I cannot. For some time I have not be

ction of his official oath than in commendation of what he had done to maintain freedom of debate and the honor of his State. The Advertiser printed tardily, July 10, Sumner's speech of June 26,—its first publication of any of his speeches. It did not publish his speeches on the Nebraska bill, though publishing Everett's speech on the bill, and even his later remarks on the clerical petitions. The Atlas, Journal, and Traveller, while giving to their readers Sumner's speeches made late in June, practised before that time the same exclusion as their contemporaries. The Transcript, being social rather than political in its character, did not publish speeches; but from Sumner's first session in Congress it was uniformly kindly and generous in its brief paragraphs concerning his public conduct. The Springfield Republican did not publish his first speech against the Nebraska bill, though publishing Everett's and Seward's; but it published his second speech of May 25, and from that tim

Among his callers while he was there were Mr. and Mrs. Fish. About the middle of June he became the guest of Francis P. Blair, Sr., Silver Springs, Md., near Washington. Here he suffered a relapse; the unhealed wound continued obstinate, and singular sensations in the bead gave him forebodings of paralysis and insanity. He wrote,ives of his brother Albert, went on to Philadelphia, where he became the guest of Rev. William H. Furness, and put himself under the medical care of Dr. Caspar Wister. His expectation when he went North was to be in his seat the next month. In June the Democratic national convention, meeting at Cincinnati, nominated James Buchanan for President, Brooks was dissuaded from going to Cincinnati, as his presence might be embarrassing.

g and oppressing the chest as with a torturing, deadly weight. They have been considerably reduced by the administration of hot baths and powerful internal remedies. If I rightly understand the physician and his patient, these new pains are to be regarded purely as an effect of sympathy between the nerves in the region of the chest and the great nervous central column, not as an extension to that region of the malady of the latter, nor as an independent local disease of those nerves. In June and July Sumner passed the greater part of the time in his bed, unable even to take the air in a drive. He saw few persons, as it was difficult for him to move about; and indeed lie had little heart for society. Among his American callers were Mr. Woods,—always ready with kind offices for him, as for all fellow-countrymen,—William C. Bryant, Professor Felton, George Bemis, Thomas N. Dale, and Mrs. Ritchie of Boston; and among English friends full of sympathy whom he met were Mr. and Mrs. Gr

ion now absorbed the public mind, and was the ever-recurring topic of debate in Congress. The Democratic national convention, meeting in Charleston, S. C., in April, adjourned, after a session marked by tumult and passion, to meet at Baltimore in June, where it nominated Douglas as President, after the withdrawal of Southern delegations, and of Northern delegates like B. F. Butler and Caleb Cushing, both of Massachusetts, who were in sympathy with them. In the Charleston convention Butler voas to the effect of work, and the constant pressure of affairs on a system which is not yet hardened and annealed. My physician enjoins for the present caution and a gradual resumption of my old activities. But his speech in the Senate in the June following, and his address at Cooper Institute the next month, gave assurance of established vitality and endurance. He wrote, August 6, 1860, to Dr. Brown-Sequard:— The speech in the Senate will be evidence to you of the completeness of my
