Some contests for seats were undecided, there being two sets of delegates from New York and Illinois; but the vitally important Committee on Resolutions, composed of one delegate from each State, had been appointed withoumanent institution. Impelled by this resolution, they had determined to prevent the nomination of Stephen A.

e following anecdote concerning the last sentence in the above quotation from the Message:--Mr. De Frees, the Government printer, told me that when the Message was being printed, he was a good deal disturbed by the use of the term sugar-coated, and finally went to the President about it. Their relations to each other being of the most intimate character, he told Mr. Lincoln frankly that he ought to remember that a message to Congress was a different affair from a speech at a mast meeting in Illinois--that the messages became a part of history, and should be written accordingly. What Is the matter now? inquired the President. Why, said Mr. De Frees, you have used an undignified expression in the Message ; and then reading the paragraph aloud, he added, I would alter the structure of that, if I were you. De Frees, replied Mr. Lincoln, that word expresses precisely my idea, and I am not going to change it. The time will never come, in this country, when the people won't know exactl

he employment of the State's Attorney as counsel for the prisoners. It denied the use of the jails of the State for the purposes contemplated in the Fugitive Slave Law, and imposed a heavy penalty for the arrest of a free colored person as an alleged fugitive slave. The law in Wisconsin was substantially the same as that in Michigan, with an additional clause for the protection of its citizens from any penalties incurred by a refusal to aid or obey the Fugitive Slave Law. Iowa, Ohio, Illinois, Minnesota, California, and Oregon, made no laws on the subject. It is worthy of note, in this connection, that the statute-books of every Slave-labor State in the Union contained, at that time, Personal Liberty Acts, all of them as much in opposition to the letter and spirit of the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 as any act passed by the Legislatures of Free-labor States. Some of them had penalties more severe. All of them provided for the use of law by the alleged slave; most of them gave
