At the Governor's suggestion and request, the church bells were rung throughout the State; and it was while sitting in the quiet Friends' Meeting at Amesbury that Mr. Whittier heard these, and, divining the cause, framed in thought his inspired lines of praise and thanksgiving (Laus Deo!), which Mr. Garrison never wearied of repeating. A Jubilee Meeting was Feb. 4. speedily convened in Music Hall, which was crowdeFebruary, and delivered an address to an audience which Lib. 35.34, 35. packed the City Hall to overflowing and received him with the greatest enthusiasm.

S. Foster. poets and litterateurs of the country, and leading citizens Emerson, Whittier, Longfellow, Lowell, Bryant. of New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Chicago. The press also cordially endorsed the movement, which was so quietly initiated that Mr. Garrison knew nothing of it for several weeks, and was taken utterly by surprise when it was announced to him. The following is a transcript of the circular to the Public: National Testimonial to William Lloyd Garrison. The accomplishment of the Great Work of Emancipation in the United States directs our minds to

How would it do, said Mr. Garrison, to place this interrogation above the door of the House of Commons?— Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law? Psalm XCIV. 20. I used to quote that in the Anti-Corn Law Days, replied Mr. Bright, with a smile. Then he alluded to Lewis Morris's recent poem, The Epic of Hades, which had greatly impressed him, and repeated, with exquisite feeling, Whittier's beautiful apostrophe to his sister in Snow Bound. Descending next to the river terrace, the two friends talked of the future life, and Mr. Garrison narrated the curious circumstance of Henry C. Wright's Ante, p. 253. post-mortem suggestions about his burial-place. The story greatly interested Mr. Bright, who had known the author of A kiss for a blow thirty years before, and he speedily repeated it to others.

An affectionate interchange of letters took place between himself and Whittier in December, Mss. Dec. 18, 20, 1877. when the latter's seventieth birthday was celebrated; and to the many public tributes paid the poet, Mr. Garrison contributed a friendly and critical estimate in blank verse, through the columns of the Bostts so often quoted by Mr. Garrison in antislavery days, and spoke briefly and with deep feeling. He was followed by Mrs. Lucy Stone, who acknowledged the debt which women owed to the deceased; the Rev. Samuel Johnson (who read a poem written by Whittier for the occasion); and Theodore D. Weld, whose emotions almost overpowered his utterance; after which Wendell Phillips delivered an address masterly in its analysis and characterization, and tender in its concluding words of farewell and benedic

About the year 1850, certain publishers began with some regularity to send books to the Liberator for review; and it is pathetic to observe the scrupulous acknowledgment of them, generally with a notice, however brief, when the readers of the paper might have grudged both the space used in this way, and the diversion from much more urgent editorial writing.
