The Free Soil State convention was held at Fitchburg, September 15. Wilson, now the acknowledged leader of his party in the State, received on a ballot nearly all the votes as candidate for governor. Horace Mann, on his way to Ohio, where he was to be the President of Antioch College, paused foo carry the Legislature, and this result was most likely to secure Wilson's election as governor.

r municipal purposes revived the custom of the Revolutionary period long since fallen into disuse, and after a discussion upon an article inserted in the warrant for the purpose, declared the solemn conviction of the people, with only here and there a stray vote in the negative, that the repeal of the Missouri prohibition was a perfidious and wicked act. For illustration, only two negative votes were given in Concord and Stoughton; while in Bridgewater, Dedham, Westboroa, South Reading, Fitchburg, and Northampton there was no dissent. Public meetings, thronged by citizens irrespective of party, were held in sparsely settled districts as well as populous towns. The pulpit diverged from customary topics, and by concert on Sunday, March 5, summoned the people, as a moral and religious duty, to resist the great wrong. The clergy in their conferences and the religious press echoed the appeal. Remonstrances were everywhere signed by thousands, hardly any but the officials of the natio

In October, from their home, illuminated for the occasion, he witnessed, with his mother beside him, a. long procession of Republican Wide-Awakes, These companies are described in Works, vol. v. p. 344. which, as it passed down Hancock Street, saluted them with repeated cheers. Later in the campaign he delivered in Fitchburg, and repeated in Worcester, a speech on the popular sovereignty dogma,—a doctrine which admitted the right of the settlers of a territory to establish slavery in it, and showed how such a doctrine, if adopted early in our history, would have largely increased the number of slave States.
