nia; June 2 and 16. Dr. Howe's speech of June 16 is fully reported in the Semi-Weekly Courier, June 24. by Henry H. Fuller, a hard-headed lawyer, who spoke twice, commending the resolutions in terse and pertinent remarks; and by Hillard, who appeared only once in the debate, urging fairness in the reports of the Society, and rebuking an anonymous newspaper attack on Sumner. Sumner, Howe, and Hillard were the subjects of coarse attacks in communications printed in the Boston Post, June 2, 4, 9, and 22. The first article was replied to by a writer in that journal, June 5. The Boston Advertiser, June 26 and 30, contained communications friendly to Dwight. On the other side there were several speakers,—Rev. George Allen, of Worcester, who consumed one hour in his first speech and two in another, comparing to some extent the two systems, but chiefly defending with friendly zeal Mr. Dwight; Bradford Sumner, a lawyer respectable in character, but moderate in professional attainments;

o Charles Allen, Jan. 3, 1849:— I cannot forbear expressing to you my joy in the recent election in the Worcester district. Your triumph is a complete vindication of your own personal position, while it insures to our cause an influence over our State and in Congress which it would be difficult to estimate. I wish much that Mr. Palfrey had been returned. He is sure to succeed another time. Palfrey failed to secure a majority, and his Whig opponent was chosen. To William Jay, June 4:— Let me not delay my thanks to you any longer for your last most powerful effort in the cause of peace. I have read your Review of the Mexican War with the interest and gratitude inspired by all your productions. By a careful analysis of documents and of unquestionable facts you have shown the aggressive character of the mexican War, and still further the foul slaveholding motives in which it had its origin. I think that the just historian hereafter will be compelled to adopt your

controversy. The Free Soilers were particularly annoyed by the reproaches of the non-voting Abolitionists. Mr. Garrison, at a meeting of the Norfolk County Antislavery Society, held at Dedham, April 22, introduced a resolution condemning the senator's silence for four months on the slavery question, and his omission for two months to present the petition for the relief of Drayton and Sayres. Mr. Garrison renewed his criticisms on both points at different times in the Liberator, April 23; June 4, 11, 18; August 6,13. Another non-voting Abolitionist, Edmund Quincy, also repeated them in letters to the Antislavery Standard, which were copied by the Liberator in August, and in the Boston Courier, August 14. The resolution was opposed by William I. Bowditch Mr. Bowditch, in a note to Sumner with reference to Mr. Garrison's course at the meeting, said: Much as I honor and love him, Mr. Garrison's passion sometimes seems to be to attack single individuals rather than the system of sla

e early by rail for Dax, where at breakfast met a Frenchman who insisted upon knowing my age and business; he set me down at thirty-five, perhaps thirty-eight. The Eaux-Chaudes there are striking. Thence by diligence to Pan, where I arrived at evening; the view here is far more beautiful than I had expected,—I think the most beautiful thing of the kind which I have seen in France. June 3. This whole day passed at Pau, where I saw the castle, and enjoyed the Pyrenees capped with snow. June 4. Started at eight o'clock in the morning on the outside of the diligence for Eaux-Bonnes in the Pyrenees; as an accidental companion was a priest, with whom I talked a great deal, and who was very civil. The road was constantly ascending by the side of a beautiful little stream. Arrived before four o'clock; tasted the waters, took a bath, and made a contract with a guide to conduct me to-morrow across the mountains to Cauterets. June 5. Mounted on horseback at six o'clock in the morning

very, which had been framed by a territorial convention and ratified by the people, was pending in the Senate, where its defeat was assured by the determination of the Administration senators not to allow the increase of the Republican electoral vote which would result from its passage. The senators availed themselves of the debate on this bill to make political speeches which attracted attention only from the public interest in the speakers themselves. The day set apart for Sumner was Monday, June 4. Green of Missouri, to whom the floor had been previously assigned, gracefully yielded it to him. He entered the chamber a few moments before the time assigned for the Kansas bill. He had with him his speech in print, thinking it best to rely on his notes and avoid the strain of trusting only to the memory. The audience in the galleries was not large, as the interest in the debate on slavery had been transferred from Congress to the country. The account of the scene is compiled f
