The choice fell upon Beriah Green. A better man could not have been selected. Though of plain exterior and unimposing presence, Mr. Green was Mr. Green was a man of learning and superior ability; in every way above the average of so-called men of eminence. Mr. Tappan, who sat at his right, was ass; upon which the Convention went into Committee of the Whole. Beriah Green expressed his disgust with those who assert that Wm.

He was supposed to be aiming at a seat in Congress (Lib. 12: 127), and though he never attained it, in spite of a Liberty Party nomination (Lib. 14: 174), he remained a politician to the end of his days. Wright is—we scarcely know Elizur Wright. A. A. Phelps. where; and doing—we know not what. Beriah Green knew, though he put the question to Mr. Wright (Lib. 11: 82), What are you at? Has La Fontaine led you off altogether from the field of battle? The preface to Wright's translation bears date September, 1841. Meantime the apologetic, pro-slavery conduct of the Free American by a clerical successor of Torrey (Lib. 11: 82, 91), whom even he had to denounce, forced the Mass. Abolition Society to make a shift of securing Mr. Wright's services as editor once more in June, 1841 (Lib. 11.99).

f it (Ms.). While Mr. Garrison is overtaking his companion at Buffalo, we may pause to consider the state of the Liberty Party about to meet in that city, for the last time in its collective capacity. Rather it was a question whether the organization was not already done for. In the second week in June a Fourth Party had gone out from it, June 8-10, 1847. forming a Liberty League at Macedon Lock, N. Y., under the auspices of J. G. Birney, Gerrit Smith, William Lib. 17.106. Goodell, Beriah Green, William L. Chaplin, James C. Jackson, and others. Its twenty articles consisted of those extraneous topics which began to press for admittance as soon as the Third Party had been launched Ante, 2.435. on the nominal basis of immediate emancipation,—as, for example, free trade, direct taxation, abolition of the Government monopoly of carrying the mails, The hobby of Lysander Spooner, now—superseding Goodell (Lib. 17.170)—the high priest of the doctrine of the unconstitutionality of

8, 62. Northern Disunionists and Southern Secessionists, and the utter absence of any justification for the latter. Neither he nor the American Anti-Slavery Society had ever advocated the right of a State to secede from the Union ad libitum, without reason; and only a revolutionary right, for the causes set forth in the Declaration of Independence, could justify the South in its course. On the issue raised by the secessionists, he reiterated, in Lib. 31.63. rejoinder to a letter from Beriah Green, they are wholly and fearfully in the wrong, while President Lincoln is indisputably in the right. On his side all the elements of freedom will coalesce, sympathetically and approvingly, as against their thoroughly infernal spirit and purposes, and a thousand times over wish him success in the struggle. At the same time, as pertaining to a continued union with the South, God grant that the North may speedily see the folly, danger, and iniquity of trying it any longer! Let . . . t

Sixty-two delegates were found to be in attendance. Beriah Green, of the Oneida (New York) Institute, was chosen president, a fresh-faced, sandy-haired, rather common-looking man, but who had the reputation of an able and eloquent speaker. He had already made himself known to us as a resolute and self-sacrr another passed up to the platform, signed, and retired in silence. All felt the deep responsibility of the occasion: the shadow and forecast of a life-long struggle rested upon every countenance. Our work as a Convention was now done. President Green arose to make the concluding address. The circumstances under which it was uttered may have lent it an impressiveness not its own; but as I now recall it, it seems to me the most powerful and eloquent speech to which I have ever listened.
