stem of African slavery which may be demanded to adapt it to the progress of civilization. Regarding the whole subject in this light, the duty of thoroughly investigating it seems to me to be laid upon the country as a moral necessity. It is useless to talk of delicacy and humiliation, in the presence of such fruits as a false philosophy has already borne plentifully throughout the land. As your chosen instructor, I owe you a service. I dare not give up your minds to the dominion of Wayland's Philosophy, (your text,) nor to any other text on this subject, now known to the country. I propose to lead your way in exploring the mine of truth which we may assume to underlie the system of African slavery. We may look with confidence to reach these results: 1. That the philosophy of Jefferson is false, and that the opposite is true, namely, that the great abstract principle of domestic slavery is, per se, right; and therefore it is not in the use but in the abuse of this princip
86. a Psalm of Freedom. by Rev. E. H. Sears, of Wayland, mass. Still wave our streamer's glorious folds O'er all the brave and true, Though ten dim stars have turned to blood On yonder field of blue. It is our nation's judgment-day That makes her stars to fall; And all the dead start from their graves At Freedom's trumpet-call. Lo, on the thunders of the storm She rides,--an angel strong; “Now my swift day of reckoning comes Now ends the slaver's wrong. “ Lift up your heads, ye faithful ones, For now your prayers prevail; Ye faithless, hear the tramp of Doom, And dread the iron hail! “God's last Messiah comes apace, In Freedom's awful name; He parts the tribes to right and left, To glory or to shame.” Then wave the streamer's gallant folds O'er all the brave and true, Till all the stars shine out again On yonder field o

They were more congenial. The text-book, Wayland's Moral Science, interested me, and in my final examination of the book, I was enabled to recite thirteen pages verbatim.

These doctrinal teachings would be perfect did all nations stand, in all respects, upon a complete level; but as they do not, the teachings applied to statesmanship are as useless as they are vicious. I have the very highest respect for the learned professors of colleges. But when they go out to talk on politics, they always remind me of a recluse old maid lecturing on how to bring up children. One portion of the exercises of that year was the reading of Demosthenes' Oratio de Corona. I do not like

Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Child, Lydia Maria 1802-1880 (search)
Child, Lydia Maria 1802-1880 Author; born in Medford, Mass., Feb. 11, 1802; educated in the common schools; began her literary career in 1819; and was noted as a supporter of the abolition movement. In 1859 she sent a letter of sympathy to John Brown, who was then imprisoned at Harper's Ferry, offering to become his nurse. This offer he declined, but requested her to aid his family, which she did. Governor Wise, of Virginia, politely rebuked her in a letter, and another epistle from Senator Mason's wife threatened her with eternal punishment. These letters with her replies were subsequently published and reached a circulation of 300,000. In 1840-43 she was editor of the National Anti-slavery standard. Her publications include The rebels; The first settlers of New England; Freedman's book; Appeal for that class of Americans called Africans; Miria, a romance of the republic, etc. She died in Wayland, Mass., Oct. 20, 1880.

termined to go on to Virginia to nurse him; but, prostrated by the shock thus given to her nervous system, she was prevented, by physical incapacity, from carrying out the generous and heroic impulse. On suggesting the execution of this design to her distinguished relative, Mrs. Child, that lady at once sent a letter to Captain Brown, forwarding it with a note to Governor Wise, in which she asked permission to go on to Charlestown and nurse the old hero. Letter to Captain Brown. Wayland, Mass., Oct. 26, 1859. Dear Captain Brown: Though personally unknown to you, you will recognize in my name an earnest friend of Kansas, when circumstances made that territory the battle ground between the antagonistic principles of slavery and freedom, which politicians so vainly strive to reconcile in the government of the United States. Believing in peace principles, I cannot sympathize with the method you chose to advance the cause of freedom; but I honor your generous intentions; I ad

Those which were acknowledged by the President were chiefly sent by the ladies. Wayland Incorporated April 10, 1780. Population in 1860, 1,188; in 1865, 1,138.

This society held frequent meetings, at which contributions were re

t was a busy foreignpost day. At Providence the truth reached her: President Wayland [of Brown University] agreed with me Autobiography, 1.346, and Society in America, 1, § 4. at the time about the iniquitous and fatal character of the outrage; but called on me, after a trip to Boston, to relieve my anxiety by the assurance that it was all right,—the mob having been entirely composed of gentlemen! William Goodell writes to Mr. Garrison from Providence, Feb. 25, 1836: Have you read Wayland's Elements [of moral science] ? There are a few pages in it that squint hard at a support of the authority of Government to judge of and punish incendiary publications. I am astonished that no one has noticed it. But all in good time. I am waiting to see his course in some matters now pending. We shall soon see how far he will go in playing the Lane Seminary game over again!
