e been thrown open, and the fervor of my discourses anticipated and exceeded by my fellow-townsmen. The fact that two millions of colored beings are groaning in bondage, in this land of liberty, excites no interest nor pity. If these damning facts are remembered sixty years after their occurrence to the shame of the trustees of the two churches, viz., the Presbyterian Church on Harris street and the Second Congregational Church, it is also remembered to the honor of the two pastors, Rev. Dr. Daniel Dana, and the Rev. Dr. Luther F. Dimmick, that they had thrown open to the prophet the doors of their meeting-houses, which the trustees afterward slammed in his face. In Boston the same hard luck followed him. In all that city of Christian churches he could not obtain the use of a single meeting-house, in which to vindicate the rights of two millions of American citizens, who are now groaning in servile chains in this boasted land of liberty; and also to propose just, benevolent, and c

as soon as convenient. Your friend and well-wisher till death, Wm. Lloyd Garrison. Mr. Garrison now proceeded to Newburyport, resolved that his native town should be the first place in Massachusetts to hear his lectures on slavery. Dr. Daniel Dana, pastor of the Presbyterian church on Harris Street, readily agreed to give him the meeting-house for that purpose, but when the audience gathered for the first lecture, the doors of the sanctuary were closed, and it appeared that the Trust Garrison delivered his first lecture in Dr. Dimmick's church, on the evening of September 28, to a large audience; but the next evening the doors were closed against him, and Dr. Dimmick found himself as helpless in the hands of his Trustees as Dr. Dana had been. Indignant at this insulting treatment, Mr. Garrison addressed the following communication to the editor of the Herald, and, shaking the dust of the town from his feet, went back to Boston: Sir: Twice have the inhabitants of th

Half as many gentlemen of Newburyport confessed Lib. 20.73. their gratitude to Webster for his having recalled them to a due sense of their Constitutional obligations; and in this group we read the names of Francis Todd (who, if a novice in slave-catching, had known something of Ante, 1.180. slave-trading) and of the Rev. Daniel Dana, D. D. These Ante, 1.207. addresses, with Professor Stuart's obsequious pamphlet Lib. 20.83. on Conscience and the Constitution, elicited acknowledgments from Webster, which were so many supplements Lib. 20.62, 89, 121. to his 7th of March speech, coining fresh euphemisms for the shameful thing he invested with the sacred name of duty.

It was provided that this committee should consist of three in the body of the town, one upon the common, one in Charlestown End, two at Menotomy, and two on the south side of the River. The members first elected were Samuel Danforth, Esq., Andrew Bordman, Esq., John Bradish, Deacon Samuel Bowman, Benjamin Goddard, John Cutter, Ephraim Frost, Daniel Dana, and Deacon Samuel Sparhawk. The faithful and useful services of Dr. Appleton were recognized by the College in the bestowment of a degree, which, however common it may have since become, had never before been conferred by that corporation, except upon Rev. Increase Mather in 1692, and which was therefore a notable mark of honor. The record bears date July 9, 1771: The Rev.
