of a public vessel to convey him and his fellow exiles to the United States; and having been conveyed to England in one of our steam frigates, he proceeded, after a few weeks of sojourn in that country, to New York, where he arrived December 5. He was greeted with extraordinary demonstrations of admiration and good-will; and the enthusiasm which swept over the city not only pervaded the populace, but extended in a large degree to the educated classes, lawyers, clergymen, and editors. Parke Godwin, of the New York Evening Post, was one of his most earnest advocates. Coming as he did with a national invitation, there was a propriety, it was thought, in according to Kossuth a national reception. On the first day of the session, when he was still on the ocean, Foote of Mississippi, at the instance of Webster the Secretary of State, offered in the Senate a resolution for the purpose; but as special objections were made to its form, it was withdrawn by the mover, and the debate pr

ay, and all my thoughts of you are baptized with blessings. May God and good angels guard you, and restore your precious health!

Furness from Philadelphia, the Barclays from Baltimore, Mrs. Wadsworth from Geneseo, John Jay from Bedford, Mr. Fish from New York and Newport, John Bigelow from New York, Parke Godwin from Roslyn, Mr. Pell from the highlands of the Hudson, Mr. Adams from Quincy, Amos A. Lawrence from Brookline, F. W. Bird from Walpole, R. B. Forbes from Milton, Ellis Gray Loring from Beverly, John E. Lodge from Nahant, and Joseph Lyman from Jamaica Plain. Everywhere in the free States doors would have swung open to receive the honored guest. Yale College, in August, conferred on him the degree of Doctor of Laws.

erting them, and perhaps drive them to unite their distracted voters or to resist the government in case of Republican success. Some who doubted the policy of the speech admitted Sumner's right to make it, in view of what he had suffered from the barbarism of slavery,—making a similar apology for a speech in the House by Owen Lovejoy, brother of the abolitionist killed at Alton. John Bigelow of the Evening Post, who was more in sympathy with Sumner's views than his associates Bryant and Godwin, wrote, June 27, that while appreciating the doubt whether such a speech might not inflame the hostility of the enemies of freedom more than the enthusiasm of its friends, he did not think a different treatment of the subject could reasonably be expected from its author. But Sumner had his own view of the historic conflict. To him it was no holiday contest, but a solemn battle between right and wrong, between good and evil, in which the deepest emotions of human nature were marshalled; in w
