which had zealously advocated the fusion, now gave up the effort as hopeless, but from time to time upbraided the Whig journals and partisans whom it held accountable for the failure,—July 26, 27; August 5, 19, 24, 26; October 24; November 13, 15, 27. This defeat of popular aspirations was a great disappointment to the best people of the State. It kept alive old griefs, and divided into rival and hostile factions those whose duty it was to work together for a great cause. For once Massachuses the predominant influence of Free Soilers in the order, which foreshadowed, in the event of success, the election of Henry Wilson as Everett's successor in the Senate.

where he spoke were Springfield, Worcester, Fitchburg, Lynn, Lowell, and Salem. At Springfield The Boston Telegraph, October 29, gives extracts from newspapers showing Sumner's success at New Bedford, Springfield, and Worcester. The local paper at Lowell gave a similar description. he spoke in the largest hall of the city, which was crowded to its full capacity, with several hundred seeking admission without avail. The Springfield Republican, hitherto not partial in his favor, wrote, October 27:— The outbursts of applause by which Mr. Sumner was frequently interrupted told the irrepressible enthusiasm of the audience, and their hearty indorsement of the sentiments of the speaker; and we may say without exaggeration that a better or more cheering demonstration was never made in Springfield. Nearly or quite twelve hundred persons were present during the whole evening, and hundreds on hundreds went away unable to get in. Sumner began his address, Works, vol. IV. pp. 6

ours l'illustre senateur des États Unis, M. Charles Sumner. The elder Gordon, with whom Sumner kept up a correspondence, mentioned, May 24, soon after they parted, how at every meeting his friends inquired earnestly for him, as Renouvier, Taillandier, Bouchet (he of the horny hand, who tills his own soil), Masarin, and Carabine Mares,—from all of whom I am charged with kindest remembrances and compliments, which if given verbatim would swell this letter to a sheet of foolscap.
