Et magis, magisque viri nunc gloria claret. Rest not! life is sweeping g other voices, till it reaches our rulers at Washington, and in tones of thunder demands the cessation of this unjust war. On the 17th of the same month he read before the Boston Mercantile Library Association a curious and brilliant paper on White slavery in the Barbary States.

I take pleasure in saying, said Horace White, in a letter written from Chicago, that in my opinion your recent effort ranks with Demosthenes on the Crown, and with Burke on Warren Hastings. Your speech, wrote A. A. Sargent (now senator from California) to Mr. Sumner, stirred my heart with feelings of pride for the representative of my native State.
