John Jay Chapman, William Lloyd Garrison, Chapter 2: the Background (search)
hy they were so startled by Garrison. Even Channing, who was a true saint, and, when time was givAbolitionists on the question of free speech, Channing became a broken idol to all of the South and contemporary flock of time-serving parsons. Channing was a man who could, and did, go through the ation, and knew not how to save himself. Dr. Channing's coldness toward Abolition might be shown -beloved of all. He was an especial friend of Channing's. His tragic death was at the time considerenning for permission to use his church; which Channing accorded. The standing committee of the churhan accept this affront from his flock. Nay, Channing should have resigned twenty years earlier, anl are the philosophic illuminations of men. Dr. Channing disbelieved in the principle of associationf association. I share this disbelief with Dr. Channing; the miserable squabbles between Anti-slave which dangers Channing very clearly saw.

Dr. Channing, I continued with increased earnestness, itr made to another; and the figures of May and Channing seem to stand as in a bas-relief symbolizing onalism and the fountains of morality were by Channing turned upon the entire subject. This was no half-work: it was thorough. Channing's name carried the book into houses, both at the North and in ance to posterity, however, is that it proves Channing's courage, and shows that his occasional subsitionists were, of course, not satisfied with Channing's pamphlet; for he could not sanction their vtheir Boston friends were cut to the heart by Channing's essay. They denounced him as an even more son. If, at times, we feel dissatisfied with Channing's caution, we should remember that he was a m[3 more...]
John Jay Chapman, William Lloyd Garrison, Chapter 5: the crisis (search)
Garrison should be silenced, because he was a fanatic; but before long they were demanding that the Abolitionists should be hanged, and were mingling the name of Channing in their execrations. In the beginning they demanded only to be let alone; but before long they were swearing that the South should buy and sell slaves underneunderstand and to resist the advance of slavery as Lovejoy's murder. The Abolitionists of Boston immediately sought Faneuil Hall, which was at first refused. Dr. Channing, heading the free-speech movement, joined with the Abolitionists in claiming the right to use the Hall. It was felt that the great public was behind this claia letter written by one of them, a woman, to a friend in England. Stout men, my husband for instance, came home that day and lifted up their voices and wept. Dr. Channing did not know how dangerous an experiment, as people count danger, he adventured. We knew that we must send our children out of town and sleep in our day garme

led extravagant. They are appalling. They are magnificent. And they came much nearer to expressing the general opinion of the country in 1842 than the milder words quoted above came to expressing the contemporary opinion of 1832. Education was marching, the case was beginning to be understood. Within three years after Garrison's denunciation of the Constitution as an agreement with Hell, the Annexation of Texas brought thousands of the most conservative minds in the country, including Channing, to the point of abandoning the Constitution; and when in 1854 Garrison publicly burned the Constitution on the Fourth of July, the incident was of slight importance. Civil War was already inevitable: the dragon's teeth had been sown: the blades of bright bayonets could be seen pushing up through the soil in Kansas. We see, then, the profound unity of Garrison's whole course, and may examine with indulgence some minor failures in logic which are very characteristic of him — very charact

t a coveted office: it is open to all men. Never for one moment was Emerson's mission far from his thought. His fear of approaching it, his excessive reverence for it, is due to his artistic instinct; just as Garrison's blatancy about his mission — the same mission — is a part of Garrison's lack of artistic instinct. With that gleam of practical sagacity which distinguished him, Emerson had resigned from the Church at the first whisper of coercion. He was a free man. He was freer than Channing. He was freer even than Garrison; for Garrison kept founding Societies which gave him endless trouble. Emerson's early and unobtrusive retirement from office shows us an amusing exchange of roles between the two; for in this instance Emerson, the recluse, knew the world better than Garrison, the man of action. But Emerson knew the world only in spots. His diary shows us a mind that is almost callow. Never numbers, he writes, but the simple and wise shall judge, not the Whartons and
