most exciting canvass was prosecuted with the greatest vigor. Luckily for us the coalition was composed very largely of young men, among them plenty of able and vigorous debaters, full of youth, energy, and strength, such as Burlingame, Banks, Rantoul, and others, who afterwards made themselves famous. The election came off with very curious results. So far as Lowell was concerned the hope for our success gave courage to the operatives in the mills, for we promised them protection from ant he can find out that those two words are there; but who put them there, or whether they are there honestly, or whether they represent the sentiments of the candidate, the voter has no means of determining. Early in the session of 1851 Robert Rantoul, Jr., than whom the State never boasted a more eloquent or logical man as a political debater, was elected to the short term in the U. S. Senate, in the place of the Hon. Robert C. Winthrop, who had been appointed by the governor to succeed Web

A large convention was held in the city of Worcester on the seventh day of September, over which the Hon. Robert Rantoul of Beverly presided. As Mr. Sumner entered the convention, the whole assembly rose, and with long-continued cheering gave him welcome as their honored champion. He then made one of the most effective and brilliant speeches ever heard in that city. His theme was The duties of Massachusetts at the present crisis; and with the skill of a master whose heart is glowing with the grandeur of his subject, whose tongue is touched with a celestial flame, he proceeded amidst continued outbu

was observed that persons suffered no pain in the operation, and that no inconvenience resulted from the administration of the vapor. It was the opinion of Robert Rantoul and other members of the Congressional Committee that Doctor Jackson suffered from a heated and disordered imagination, and that is the most charitable view or Morton's favor, calling attention to the fact that the government had been pirating his patent, and proposing that the subject be referred to a committee. Robert Rantoul seconded the motion, and the step was taken. It was considered better for the chances of success that the proposition should come from a Western man. This. Morton. About the same time it happened that the Massachusetts State House was reconstructed, and William Endicott, as Commissioner, and a near relative of Robert Rantoul, had Morton's name emblazoned in the Hall of Fame with those of Franklin, Morse, and Bell.

the old tone so often breathed there of Northern submission has very much changed since John Quincy Adams vindicated free speech on the floor of that House. I read just now a speech worthy, in some respects, of Faneuil Hall, from the lips of Robert Rantoul, in rebuke of a recreant Abolitionist from the banks of the Connecticut (George T. Davis). I know not what may be the future course of Mr. Rantoul on this question; I know not how erect he may stand hereafter; but I am willing to give him gooMr. Rantoul on this question; I know not how erect he may stand hereafter; but I am willing to give him good credit in the future, so well paid has been this his first bill of exchange. [Great cheering.] He has done, at least, his duty to the constituency he represented. He looked North for his instructions. The time has been when no Massachusetts representative looked North; we saw only their backs. They have always looked to the Southern Cross; they never turned their eyes to the North Star. They never looked back to the Massachusetts that sent them. Charles Allen and Horace Mann, no matter
