nest appeal to the consciences of menstealers. This was a damning bill, but it was true in every particular; and the evidence which Garrison adduced to establish his charges was overwhelming and irrefragable. Nearly fifty years afterward, Elizur Wright described the baleful influence of the society upon the humanity and philanthropy of the nation. The humanity and philanthropy, he said, which could not otherwise be disposed of, was ingeniously seduced into an African Colonization Society, of General Samuel Fessenden, of Portland, Me., to Mr. Garrison, dated December 14. 1832. Among the remarkable minds which the Thoughts disillusioned in respect of the character and tendency of the Colonization Society were Theodore D. Weld, Elizur Wright, and Beriah Green, N. P. Rogers, William Goodell, Joshua Leavitt, Amos A. Phelps, Lewis Tappan, and James Miller McKim. Garrison's assertion that the overthrow of the Colonization Society was the overthrow of slavery itself, was, from the

Arthur Tappan was elected President of the national organization, and William Green, Jr., Treasurer. Elizur Wright, Jr., was chosen Secretary of Domestic Correspondence, William Lloyd Garrison Secretary of Foreign Correspondence, and Abraham L. Cox Recording Secretary. Besides these officers there were a Board of Management and a number of Vice-Presidents sr voice was not heard. The Rev. Amos A Phelp's Lectures on slavery and its remedy; the Rev. J. D.

May's letters to Andrew T, Judson, The rights of colored people to education Vindicated; Prof. Elizur Wright, Jr's, Sin of slavery and its remedy; Whittier's Justice and Expediency; and, above all, Mrs. Lydia Maria Child's startling Appeal in favor of that class of Americans called Africans were the more potent of the new crop of writings betokening t

nary results produced by the Liberator. He believes in marrying masculine truths to, masculine words. He protests against his condemnation by comparison. Every writer's style is his own — it may be smooth or rough, plain or obscure, simple or grand, feeble or strong, he contends, but principles are immutable. By his principles, therefore he would, be judged. Whittier, for instance,, he continues, is highly poetical, exuberant, and beautiful. Stuart is solemn, pungent, and severe. Wright is a thorough logician, dextrous, transparent, straightforward. Beriah Green is manly, eloquent, vigorous, devotional. May is persuasive, zealous, overflowing with the milk of human kindness. Cox is diffusive, sanguine, magnificent, grand. Bourne thunders and lightens. Phelps is one great, clear, infallible argumentdemonstration itself. Jocelyn is full of heavenlymindedness, and feels and speaks and acts with a zeal according to knowledge. Follen is chaste, profound, and elaboratel

t here. You can form no conception of it. 'Tis like the time of the French Revolution, when no man dared trust his neighbor. Private assassins from New Orleans are lurking at the corners of the streets to stab Arthur Tappan, and very large sums are offered for any one who will convey Mr. Thompson into the slave States. . . . There are several thousand Southerners now in the city, and I am afraid there are not seven hundred among them who have the slightest fear of God before their eyes. Mr. Wright [Elizur] was yesterday barricading his doors and windows with strong bars and planks an inch thick. Violence in some form seems to be generally expected. Great meetings to put the Abolitionists down afforded vents during this memorable year to the pentup excitement of the free States. New York had had its great meeting, and had put the Abolitionists down with pro-slavery resolutions and torrents of proslavery eloquence. Boston, too, had to have her great meeting and her cataracts of

also the duty of its organ, the Emancipator, to rebuke the authors of the appeals. Not so, replied Lewis Tappan and Elizur Wright, your request is unreasonable. If you choose to make a mountain out of a molehill, you choose to make a mistake whicology of the priesthood alone for the present. I could have wished, yes, I have wished from the bottom of my soul, it is Wright who now holds the pen, that yon could conduct that dear paper, the Liberator, in the singleness of purpose of its first yept in a peculiar and, as I think, diseased state) to believe them. Barring the extreme plainness of speech with which Wright and Tappan gave their advice to Mr. Garrison, it was in the main singularly sound and wise. But the pioneer did not so rive of the advocates of the third-party idea was none the less a grand one, viz., to have a free Northern nucleus, as Elizur Wright put it, a standard flung to the breezesomething around which to rally. Garrison probed to the quick the question in

er in the wickedness of all opposition to his idea of right and duty. This, of course, must be taken only as a broad description of the reformer's character. He was a man, one of the grandest America has given to the world, but still a man with his tendon of Achilles, like the rest of his kind. His narrow intolerance of the idea of anti-slavery political action, and his fierce and unjust censure of the champions of that idea, well illustrate the trait in point. Birney and Whittier, and Wright and Gerrit Smith, and Joshua Leavitt, he apparently quite forgot, were actuated by motives singularly noble, were in their way as true to their convictions as he was to his. No, there was but one right way, and in that way stood the feet of the pioneer. His way led directly, unerringly, to the land of freedom. All other ways, and especially the Liberty party way, twisted, doubled upon themselves, branched into labyrinths of folly and self-seeking. Ho! all ye that desire the freedom of the
