As Emerson notified Carlyle in the Oct. 30, 1840. previous autumn, We are all a little wild here with numberless projects of social reform. Not a reading man but has a drxecutive when New York surrendered the alleged fugitives from justice to Virginia, and its Legislature repealed the act of 1840 extending the right of trial by jury to citizens whose freedom was called in question by kidnappers or Southern slaveownered.

s upon Mr. Foster's unresisting person, in a spirit and with a violence hardly to be denominated Christian (Lib. 12: 110, 118). Stephen Symonds Foster was born at Canterbury, N. H., in 1809, and graduated at Dartmouth College in 1838. He began his preparation for the ministry at the Union Theological Seminary, New York, but abandoned that career in favor of a reformer's. He quickly identified himself with the Non-Resistants (ante, 2: 327), and entered the field as an anti-slavery lecturer in 1840. A devoted, noble, single-eyed, pure, eloquent, John-the-Baptist character (Wendell Phillips to E. Pease, Ms. June 29, 1842). and we soon had the town in Nov. 23, 1842. commotion. During the [next] day, a considerable number of persons were Nov. 24, 1842. in attendance, and the discussions assumed so exciting an aspect that, at the close of the afternoon meeting, it became apparent that we should have a riot in the evening—all in defence of the clergy and the church! When the evening ca

Mr. Garrison recalled his first visit to England in 1833, Lib. 15.110. and his regret that his ignorance of any language but his own overruled his desire to cross to the Continent; how, on his second visit, in 1840, the need of a universal language for mankind was again impressed upon him at Bowring's table, when he could hold no conversation Ante, 2.378. directly with Isambert and the other French delegates to the World's Convention, so that at the Crown and Anchor Ante, 2.384. soiree he had to testify against the existing diversity of tongues among mankind, to him so unnatural, fraudulent, afflictive, insupportable. Phonography seemed a long stride towards the desideratum, as promising to render ea

Mrs. Garrison, with her customary self-abnegation, interpo in a fog, was narrowly avoided, and the voyage completed in a leaking vessel. Richard Webb, the last to bid him adieu in 1840, was waiting anxiously at Ante, 2.404; Liverpool to greet his return, Webb had been remembered by his faithful corresp of pioneer, to be the chief transatlantic figure in its proceedings that he had in the World's Anti-Slavery Convention of 1840. But that distinction was reserved for the Rev. Dr. Lyman Beecher, who was introduced and often referred to as Lib. 16:[e as a member of the Convention; but I soon perceived that the same spirit which controlled the Anti-Slavery Convention in 1840, had entire mastery over this. In the course of the afternoon session, the Rev. Mr. Kirk Edward N. Kirk. of Boston incid

Oberlin has done much for the relief of the flying fugitives from the Southern prison-house, multitudes of whom have found it a refuge from their pursuers, and been fed, clad, sheltered, comforted,the public lands.

answered by computing from the latest census of Kentucky that, out of some 5,000,000 whites in the South, only 100,000, including women and minors, held slaves. Judge Jay, reckoning Wm. Jay. from the same basis, but applying it to the census of 1840, arrived at the sum of 117,000, which, if we were Lib. 20.34. to enlarge it by 70,000, would still exceed by less than one-half the population of Boston in this year of Lib. 20.183. compromise, reaction, and violence. We have sought in vain t cultivated audience, more ability guided by the best taste on a platform, more deep, practical interest, on any occasion. It took me completely by surprise; and the women were the ablest speakers, too. You would have laughed, as we used to do in 1840, to hear dear Lucretia Mott answer me. I had presumed to differ from her, and assert that the cause would meet more immediate and palpable and insulting opposition from women than men—and scolded them for it. She put, as she so well knows how, the

is, and mobbed by divinity students. His reputation among sectarians on both sides of the Atlantic suffers a still further decline. Friendly correspondence as to his heresy with Harriet Beecher Stowe. From among a dozen conventions which make the year 1853 memorable in Mr. Garrison's career, we choose for a caption the one that most affected his popular reputation. Theologically, his progress had been (from the orthodox point of view) steadily downward. The Chardon-Street Convention of 1840-41 had shown him Ante, 2.421. willing to discuss the sanctity of the Sabbath, the Ministry, and the Church. The Anti-Sabbath Convention of Ante, p. 218. 1848 marked the change from inquiry to open opposition to Sabbatarianism. The Hartford Bible Convention gave public notice of his abandonment of the common view of the inspiration of the Scriptures in which he had been bred. This, though not the lowest possible stage of descent—for an Anti-Bible Convention or Society was conceivable—was

y of America which was Lib. 27.6. opened twenty-five years ago by the organization of the New England Anti-Slavery Society—may it soon be closed with the record of the accomplishment of its object, the complete, peaceful, unconditional abolition of American slavery. To this toast, proposed by Quincy, Mr. Garrison responded in an historical retrospect, mingled with Lib. 27.6. tributes to his departed co-laborers, whether steadfast or alienated. Had the division in the anti-slavery ranks in 1840 not taken place, he thought emancipation might already have been achieved. T. W. Higginson thanked the abolitionists of Massachusetts, not alone that they first told the secret of slavery, twenty-five years ago, to the astonished nation, but that they have told another secret, more recently, more daringly, to a nation yet more astonished—told the secret of anti-slavery, and told it in one word—disunion!

Chapter 18: the irrepressible Conflict.—1858. Both Seward and Lincoln overtake Garrison's declaration (as far back as 1840) of the irreconcilability of freedom and slavery. Conviction seizes upon many abolitionists that the conflict will end only in blood. Garrison deprecates the idea, and washes his hands of all responsibility for such a ter-mination. No attempt was made in 1858 to renew the Disunion Convention of the previous year. The financial prostration continued, and, furnishing a pretext to the clergy to blow up a spurious revival of religion, became a Lib. 28.70, 78, 83. greater obstacle than ever. The Massachusetts abolitionists, however, relying upon the new Executive of the State, N. P.
