. But the great opportunity never occurs twice, and the nearest I ever came to it was in being one of several undergraduates to bring the elder Professor Henry Ware out of his burning house. It was not much of a feat,we afterwards risked ourselves a great deal more to bring some trays of pickle-jars from the cellar,--but in the case of the venerable doctor the object was certainly worth all it cost us; for he was the progenitor of that admirable race upon which, as Dr. Holmes said to Professor Stowe, the fall of Adam had not left the slightest visible impression. This combination of motives was quite enough to make me wish that if there should be another fugitive slave case I might at least be there to see, and, joining the Vigilance Committee in Boston, I waited for such an occasion.

s friend sadly, only we ain't got no money. They said that they had been inveigled into coming by Atchison and others, on the promise of support for a year and fifty dollars bonus, but that they had got neither, and had barely enough to take them to St. Louis. Let me once get home, said the same youth who made the above confession, and I'd stay at home, sure. It has cost me the price of one good nigger just for board and liquor, since I left home. Curiously enough, in reading a copy of Mrs. Stowe's Dred, just published, which I had bought in Lawrence, I opened soon after on the apt Scriptural quotation, Woe unto them, for they have cast lots for my people, . . . and sold a girl for wine, that they may drink!
