ed opposition to Texas with a slaveholding constitution, regarding the tariff as a higher principle of union in the party than the love of freedom. Nor is it too much to say that the country towns of Massachusetts do not, to any great extent, sympathize in this matter with the exclusive supporters of the tariff. . . . The country is right on this subject; and Mr. Allen pointedly expressed the unhappy antagonism which now prevails, when he referred to the opposing influences of Worcester and Lowell.— the heart of the Commonwealth on one side, and the spindles on the other. Sumner found a difficulty at this time in getting access to the public. Buckingham of the Courier,—who was in general sympathy with his views, and had usually welcomed him as a contributor,—being hampered by creditors and a partner, and dependent on the merchants of Boston for patronage, was constrained to decline his manuscript, pleading that, not being in independent circumstances, he was obliged to submit to<

His speech was not on a high level, and gave no promise of leadership in the antislavery conflict. Seward's more serious treatment of the slavery question on the evening they spoke together started a train of reflections in the mind of the fut

higs of all shades, with very rare exceptions, abstained from public demonstrations against the Compromise. In the autumn of 1850 a large meeting was held in Faneuil Hall to protect persons claimed as fugitive slaves. C. F. Adams presided; Rev. Dr. Lowell offered a prayer; R. H. Dana, Jr., read resolutions; the venerable Josiah Quincy, sent a letter, giving the authority of his name to the cause; Frederick Douglass pleaded for his race; and a committee of vigilance was appointed; but Boston Wus, as we were then by no means grown up. Sumner remained at Cambridge two or three nights. Longfellow wrote in his diary, April 24:— A pleasant dinner, at the close of which we heard the news of Sumner's election. In the evening came Lowell and Gurowski and Palfrey, and Sumner himself to escape from the triumph and be quiet from all the noise in the streets of Boston. He is no more elated by his success than he has been depressed by the failure heretofore, and evidently does not de

He produced an original letter of Washington, never published before, and lent to him by Rev. Charles Lowell, showing how the Father of his Country refused to have one of his slaves recovered if it would excite a mob or riot, or even uneasy sensations in the minds of well-disposed citizens; and then, in contrast with this injunction, he describedtion of that side of the question he had met with, believing this to be also the opinion of all candid men, and even of the Southerners, as shown by the reception they gave it. The speech was warmly applauded in letters from eminent divines,—Charles Lowell, John Pierpont, Convers Francis, William H. Furness, A. A. Livermore, Samuel Osgood, Rufus P. Stebbins, and James W. Thompson. A senator then far removed in opinion and party action (Cooper of Pennsylvania), whose subsequent change of positi

e Free Soil leaders felt much aggrieved by Sumner's abstinence from the campaign, and smarting under defeat when success was so near, some of them attributed to him the disaster. His course was the subject of comment in two or three journals, Lowell American, edited by William S. Robinson, and the Commonwealth. These criticisms were confined to the leaders, and did not extend to the masses. and was the occasion of hard words at the party headquarters.

o had been in accord with him before, but as well from others who confessed a change of heart as they meditated on the outrage in its personal and public aspects,—from obscure persons, whom he would never see, but who testified the inspiration they had—drawn from his character and career; from women who placed him in their affection and admiration by the side of husband or son; from clergymen like Wayland, Storrs (father and son), Beecher, Huntington, Dexter, Farley, Clarke, Parker, Francis, Lowell, Kirk, and others less known to fame, but not less devoted ministers at the altars of patriotism and religion. Of the letters received between May 22 and June 30, not less than three hundred and fifty are preserved. It would be instructive to read in connection with these files the letters received by Douglas, Mason, Butler, and Brooks for the same period, and compare the sentiments expressed, as well as the character of the writers. A few extracts must suffice to show the spirit of

The lecture was printed at New York in pamphlet from a reporter's notes, without the author's revision. It was rewritten and repeated in 1870 at many places in the Western as well as Eastern States. It was delivered once before the election in Boston October 1, and after the election at Concord, where he was Emerson's guest, and also at Providence and Lowell; and on each of these three occasions he was waited upon after his return from the hall by companies of Wide-Awakes, to whom he replied with counsels for moderation in victory, and also for firm resistance to menaces of disunion. Works, vol. v. pp. 344-347, 350-356. The lecture was repeated the same autumn at other places,—as Foxborough and Woonsocket, R. I., and New Haven, Conn.
