der as felons citizens charged with aiding slaves to escape, to establish quarantine against the ships of Maine and New York. More desperately unconstitutional was the proposal of Governor McDonald of Georgia, that even Lib. 11.183. packages from New York or any like offending State should be subjected to inspection, and suspicious persons therefrom be obliged to give security for good behavior— in the midst of a contented slave population. The Governor of Virginia declined to honor Governor Seward's Lib. 11.54. demand for the extradition of a New York forger—a piece of retaliation too dangerous to escape the censure of his own Legislature, though it subsequently passed an inspection law for vessels destined for New York, as Lib. 12.10. did South Carolina. These laws could be suspended by the Executive when New York surrendered the alleged fugitives from justice to Virginia, and its Legislature repealed the act of 1840 extending the right of trial by jury to citizens whose fr
solutions were laid on the Lib. 15.18. table. Months passed, during which inaction on the part of the North paved the way to the catastrophe, and sapped the Lib. 15.82. courage of the resistants—the political and practical resistants. William H. Seward, in a public letter to Salmon P. Chase, submitted in advance to the inevitable Lib. 15.113. annex ation of Texas, repudiating disunion. His counter measure was to enlarge the area of freedom—as if the South did not provide for that by cing slavery perpetual, Lib. 15.39. and authorizing the Legislature to forbid the landing of Lib. 15.54. any colored seaman—the toleration of which by Congress was a virtual approval of the action of South Carolina towards Mr. Hoar. Yet still Mr. Seward contended— We must resist unceasingly the admission of slave States, and demand the abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia Lib. 15.113.; and he even dreamed, when one independent Congress had been elected, that the internal slave-tra

I long to have some one acknowledge the fact, if he did anything to help Jerry's escape, and rest his defence, 1st, upon the unconstitutionality of the Law; 2dly, upon the egregious wickedness Cf. Lib. 21.198. of the Law. It is now no longer probable that either Gerrit Smith, Charles A. Wheaton, or myself, will be indicted. They were, however (Lib. 21: 187), at Auburn; and, bailors being called for, Hon. William H. Seward stepped forward and put his name first upon the bond, and afterwards entertained the traitors at his home. They were never tried. See the full account of the Jerry rescue in May's Recollections of the A. S. Conflict, pp. 373-384. I suppose that warrants were issued by Judge Conkling for me and for Mr. Wheaton. Alfred Conkling. Why they were not served, the managers of such matters best know. It is not that we have cowered to them. I have spoken and written, if possible, more pl

Garrison, therefore, took his place without scruple beside Charles Sumner, John G. Palfrey, Horace Mann, Henry Wilson, Anson Burlingame, Richard H. Dana, Jr., John Jay, and Joshua Leavitt.

Seward, to Greeley, to Garrison, to Phillips, to Quincy— the union of all the opponents of the propaganda of slavery, there were loud calls for Garrison, who responded with peculiar felicity, paying just tributes to Hale and to Lib. 23.74. Clay, The first meeting of Garrison and C. M. Clay, whenever it took place, was not as early as 1844, as the latter records in his Autobiography (1: 99; see Lib. 16: 23).

ed number of slave States to the Union, and we will not return your runaways (or at least such is our intention)! In 1845, it ran: Admit another slave State, and the Union is ipso facto dissolved! The best of the Free Soil leaders Lib. 24.13, 33. in Congress were still denying all thought of interfering with slavery in the States; Giddings and Sumner were Lib. 24.105, 121, 149. dodging the plain inquiry whether they admitted any Constitutional obligation with respect to fugitive slaves. Seward, discounting the present triumph of slavery in the case of Kansas and Nebraska, and anticipating yet greater,—slavery not only luxuriating in all new Territories, but stealthily creeping into the free States themselves, Greeley's Struggle for Slavery Extension, p. 81. and the country no longer a land of freedom and constitutional liberty,—could still proclaim his acquiescence in the Compromise of 1850 (of which he had never spoken irreverently), and could declare: I have always heard, with e

Chapter 18: the irrepressible Conflict.—1858. Both Seward and Lincoln overtake Garrison's declaration (as far back as 1840) of the irreconcilability of freedom and slavery. Conviction seizes upon many abolitionists that the conflict will end only in blood. Garrison deprecates the idea, and washes his hands of all responsibility for such a ter-mination. No attempt was made in 1858 to renew the Disunion Convention of the previous year. The financial prostration continued, and, furnisil Hall, Dec. 9, 1859, in case his fellow-citizens of Massachusetts embarked in a war of invasion [of the South] for the destruction of the Union and the Government of the Union (Lib. 29: 197). Davis took for his text the famous speech of Senator Seward at Rochester, N. Y., on October 25, 1858; in which Lib. 28.177. the latter foretold the supplanting of the Democratic Party in power by the Republican, and gave universal currency in a happy phrase to the old abolition view of Ante, 2.338.

The non-political abolitionists were generally passed over in the search for Brown's accomplices which immediately began after Harper's Ferry—through the Democratic press, and then through the Senatorial investigating Lib. 29.194, 207. committee directed by Senator Mason. The Republican leaders, especially Seward, for his irrepressible conflict, Lib. 29.177, 181, 185. were held responsible; and their organs were quick to repudiate the connection, and to shift the burden on to Lib. 29.169, 173, 177. the Garrisonians. For the moment, their fears told them that John Brown had ruined their chances of success at the next Presidential election. In this state of mind Henry Wilson came, on the first tidings of the outbreak, to confer with Mr. Garrison at his home in Dix Place, and departed with cheering <
