he escort of Lawrence, who was known to be unfriendly to Phillips's motion, and something in the manner of Webster himself, showed clearly enough where he stood. The debate, however, proceeded. Allen spoke most earnestly, maintaining that the question is not whether slavery shall be endured, but whether liberty shall be endured upon the American continent; and he protested that he would resist to the death any further encroachments on the area of freedom. Phillips, at the suggestion of Samuel Hoar, for the sake of brevity, reduced his amendment by dropping three of his resolutions; but Samuel H. Walley renewed, even as to the remaining three, the objection which Child had made as to the whole,—that they were superfluous. The vote was now taken at a late hour, when the delegates from the country in large numbers had left, and the amendment was lost. The vote was 91 to 137. The Boston delegation numbered 105, and supplied the main part of the 137 See accounts of the convention i

f resolutions was read by John A. Andrew. The Free Soil State convention met at Tremont Temple in Boston, September 6. Sumner was present at the preliminary caucus in that city, speaking briefly, and being placed at the head of the list of delegates. He assisted in the preparations for the convention by inviting speakers and counselling as to candidates. The convention continued for two days. It nominated S. C. Phillips for governor, and an electoral ticket, at the head of which was Samuel Hoar. The addresses and proceedings were marked by a most serious and determined spirit. It was, as Sumner wrote to Palfrey, an earnest, imposing body, with an enthusiasm that rose to fever heat. Sumner spoke briefly in moving a committee to report an address and resolutions, of which he was made chairman. The address was not his own composition; Palfrey was its reputed author. The Free Soilers of Massachusetts proved to be men of extraordinary vitality; and it is interesting to observe

ch co-operation for the purpose of securing a United States senator who was to be chosen by the next Legislature. The discussion was frank and earnest. Generally, excepting Wilson, those who had been Whigs-Palfrey, Adams, Phillips, Dana, and Samuel Hoar—opposed the coalition, Dr. Samuel G. Howe. who was not present, did not regard the coalition with entire favor. Dana, though opposing it, recognized some of its good results. Adams's Biography of Dana, vol. i. pp, 166, 171, 172, 195, 210ght to pacify the public mind with the claim that the North had on the whole gained the substance. The Free Soilers and Democrats united on senators in all the counties with no difficulty, except in Middlesex, where the union was opposed by Samuel Hoar, Dana, Burlingame, and J. C. Dodge; and in the towns such unions were almost universal. For Congress the Free Soilers supported Mann, the rejected Whig, and Fowler, insuring the election of both. The canvass was very spirited. The Free Soil

ompromise, looked to the maintenance of the Whig party as the vanguard of the great army of constitutional liberty. Meantime a popular movement for a union began at Concord, in a meeting held June 22, where a committee of correspondence, with Samuel Hoar and Ralph Waldo Emerson as members, was appointed. This committee invited a large number of the leading men of the three parties to meet at the American House in Boston July 7; but less than thirty attended. Atlas, July 10; Commonwealth, July 8, 11. Among the Free Soilers at this conference were Samuel Hoar, F. W. Bird, S. C. Phillips, C. F. Adams, Henry Wilson, R. W. Emerson, George F. Hoar, and Marcus Morton, Jr. Less than half-a-dozen Whigs came, and most of these were obstructive. No definite action was taken, for the reason that a call for a fusion mass convention had been issued by other persons interested in the movement, which obtained eight or ten thousand names, and received in some towns the signatures of nearly all

Further proof was given by the slave codes, which, whatever might be the eminence of individual virtue, were faithful witnesses of the average condition of society; by advertisements for runaway slaves, suggestive of cruelty and lust, and admitted even into reputable journals; by the three congenial agents of slavery,—the slave-overseer, the slavebreeder, and the slave-hunter; the treatment of the friends of slaves, even when, like Samuel Hoar, they bore the commission of States; the duels and street-fights common where slavery exists; the frequent resort of slaveholding members of Congress to violence,—using pistols on the floor and challenging to the duel, with their defence of such methods in cool harangues. He treated the sophistries of the advocates of slavery, which had been reaffirmed during the session with greater audacity than ever before, that slaves were property which the masters had the right under the Constitu
