ugh those islands, whose reports they scattered, at great expense and by great exertion, broadcast through the land. This was at a time when no newspaper in the country would either lend or sell them the aid of its columns to enlighten the nation on an experiment so vitally important to us. And even now, hardly a press in the country cares or dares to bestow a line or communicate a fact toward the history of that remarkable revolution. The columns of the Antislavery Standard, Pennsylvania Freeman, and Ohio Bugle have been for years full of all that a thorough and patient advocacy of our cause demands. And the eloquent lips of many whom I see around me, and whom I need not name here, have done their share toward pressing all these topics on public attention. There is hardly any record of these labors of the living voice. Indeed, from the nature of the case, there cannot be any adequate one. Yet, unable to command a wide circulation for our books and journals, we have been oblige

by the authority of the people of Massachusetts. A simple illustration will show the absurdity of this claim. If the official oath to the Constitution of the United States, which he says Massachusetts required him as Judge of Probate to take, really binds him to execute all the laws of the Union, in every capacity, then such execution becomes a part of his official duty, since it was as a Judge of Probate, and only as such, that he took the official oath. It follows, then, that if Marshal Freeman should direct Judge Loring to aid in catching a slave, and he should refuse, the House of Representatives could impeach him for official misconduct. I think no one but a Slave Commissioner will maintain that this is law. Mr. Loring contends that he was bound to issue the warrant, holding as he did the office of Commissioner! Who obliged him to hold the office? Could he not have resigned, as many — young Kane of Philadelphia, and others-did, when first the infamous act made it poss

the island of Campobello. Andrew became a so-called branch (i.e., commissioned) pilot, at Quoddy, and died suddenly in the service in the year 1813. His wife, whom he survived, though not long, was reputed the first person buried on Deer Island; and on this unfertile but picturesque and fascinating spot Fanny Lloyd was born in 1776, and became the belle of the family. She was of a tall, majestic figure, singularly graceful in People's Journal. (Eng.) Sept. 12, 1846, p. 141; Penn.

The outward being, however, was but a faint image of the angelic nature within; she was one of those who inspire at once love and reverence; she took high views of life and its duties; and, consequently, when adversity came upon her as an armed man, she was

at a students' supper where I was at first introduced as a Confederate officer, but I got round it. This little episode was referred to by Mr. Bryce in a letter to Colonel Higginson, dated 1907:— Do you remember being with Dicey and myself at a Sunday dinner in Trinity College, Oxford . . . where you saved a perilous situation with a swift decision worthy of your military experience? One of the dons had fancied you were a Confederate officer! In Oxford, also, Colonel Higginson saw Freeman, the historian, Rawlinson, Montague Bernard, the late High Joint, and Miss Thackeray, the novelist, by far the most original and interesting woman I have seen in England. She pressed on me a letter to Tennyson and I expect to go to see him. This visit to the poet at the Isle of Wight is minutely described in Cheerful Yesterdays, and from the letters only this extract is taken:— Presently I heard a clamping step and in walked rather heavily and awkwardly a man, the most singular com

Later he was a contributor to The United States magazine and the Freeman's journal. He was editor of the New York Daily Advertiser, the National Gazette, and for a short time published the Jersey chronicle and the Time-piece And literary companion. At Commencement he delivered with H. H. Brackenridge a poetical diame his life-long friend. Later, Whittier edited the American Manufacturer, the Haverhill Gazette, and the Hartford, Conn., New England weekly Review, also contributing to John Neal's magazine, The Yankee, and afterward editing the Pennsylvania Freeman. He at first contributed most of his literary work to the National era of Washington, D. C., an important anti-slavery paper, but after the establishment of the Atlantic monthly he wrote mainly for that. Some of his works are Legends of New E

everywhere eager to hear. I am covered all over with applications to lecture in all parts of the free States. The many base attempts that have been made to cripple my influence, and to render me odious in the eyes of the people, have only served to awaken sympathy, excite curiosity, and to open a wide door for usefulness. Notice the large and harmonious meeting of the Eastern Pennsylvania A. S. Society at Philadelphia in December, 1841, at which, however, the temporary suspension of the Freeman in favor of the Standard was voted (Lib. 12: 2, 3, 7, 8).

Mr. Child, in accordance with a notice already given, withdrew from the editorship of the Standard, and was replaced by a committee of three, consisting of Sydney Howard in controversy, pointing Lib. 14: 102. out to those political abolitionists who urged rather amendment of the Constitution, that this was synonymous with dissolution, in fact and in the eyes of the South. So J. M. McKim, in the Pennsylvania Freeman, argued justly that the pretence that the Constitution was anti-slavery was a tacit admission that, if it were pro-slavery, dissolution would be a duty (Lib. 14: 105).
