imself, a very respectable lawyer and somewhat eloquent declaimer of the Suffolk bar, coolly asserting with a threatening brow, meant to be like that of Jove, to the swarming millions of the free States, that this discussion must stop! To such nonsense, whether from him, or the angry lips of his wire-puller in front of the Revere House, the only fitting answer is Sam Weller's repetition to Pickwick, It can't be done. [Cheers and laughter.] The like was never attempted but once before, when Xerxes flung chains at the Hellespont- And o'er that foolish deed has pealed The long laugh of a world! Oh, no! this chasm in the forum all the Clay in the land cannot fill. [Cheers.] This rent in the mantle all the Websters in the mill cannot weave up. [Cheers.] Perpetuate slavery amid such a race as ours! Impossible! Re-annex the rest of the continent, if you will; pile fugitive slave bills till they rival the Andes; dissolve, were it possible, the union God has made between well doing

hat whom God would destroy, he first makes mad. Were it not so, Mr. Choate would be the first man to laugh at the spectacle of himself, a very respectable lawyer and somewhat eloquent declaimer of the Suffolk bar, coolly asserting with a threatening brow, meant to be like that of Jove, to the swarming millions of the free States, that this discussion must stop! To such nonsense, whether from him, or the angry lips of his wire-puller in front of the Revere House, the only fitting answer is Sam Weller's repetition to Pickwick, It can't be done.

he South and the nation should understand Massachusetts. Mr. Webster has been trying to persuade everybody that he is the State. Some leading presses have labored to show that Webster, Whigdom, and Massachusetts were identical. While things remainee cannot see. [Cheers.] That a large party should follow Mr. Webster anywhere is not surprising. You know, Mr. Chairman, I ws an inherent defect in the article. [Cheers.] Now when Mr. Webster, standing on that majestic height whence the hopes of thiser may be considered posted on this point. I remember Mr. Webster once said, in reply to some taunt of Hayne's, There is Mlls. The Sultan might well have pleaded, in the face of Mr. Webster's recent eloquence, that fear of dethronement, anarchy, ng Kossuth. Would the world, would humanity, would even Mr. Webster, have said Amen to such a plea from his mouth?

eply to some taunt of Hayne's, There is Massachusetts! Behold her, and judge for yourselves! There is Concord and Lexington and Bunker Hill, and there they will remain forever. Let us borrow the formula, and when anybody in the United States Senate doubts our position, let us cry, There is Massachusetts! Behold her, and judge for yourselves! There is George Thompson, welcomed by the heart, if he could not be by the pocket of the Commonwealth. [Cheers.] There is Horace Mann in, and Charles W. Upham out, and there they will remain forever. [Cheers.] There is George S. Boutwell in, and George N. Briggs out, and there may they remain forever. [Enthusiastic cheers.] I cannot however quite consent to say that our friend could not be heard in Faneuil Hall. That glorious old name does not belong to bricks and mortar. As the Scottish chief boasted that where McGregor sits is the head of the table, so where Freedom dwells, where all lips are free, wherever the foe of slavery is welc

The meeting was therefore adjourned to Worcester, and suppthe fear of national rebuke at the hands of Mr. Thompson. I am afraid it was no such honorable sentnd especially so big and bitter a drop as George Thompson. [Cheers.] We should have chosen our timbster Whiggery, I mean,--as of hatred for George Thompson.

[Cheers.] Our welcome to George Thompson to-night is only the joy we have in grasp. [Cheers.] When, therefore, we recount to Mr. Thompson our success and marvellous progress, we areuent gentleman flat plagiarism?

very in peace till you got a new race to people these shores. The blood which has cleared the forest, tortured the earth of its secrets, made the ocean its vassal, and subjected every other race it has met, will never volunteer its own industry to forge gags for its own lips. You, therefore, who look forward to slavery and peace, make ready to sweep clean the continent, and see that Webster, Foot, and Dickinson be the Shem, Ham, and Japlet of the Ark you shall prepare. [Cheers.] The Carpathian Mountains may serve to shelter tyrants; the slope of Germany may bear up a race more familiar with the Greek text than the Greek phalanx; the wave of Russian rule may sweep so far westward, for aught I know, as to fill with miniature tyrants again the robber castles of the Rhine,--but this I do know: God has piled our Rocky Mountains as ramparts for freedom; He has scooped the valley of the Mississippi as the cradle of free States, and poured Niagara as the anthem of free men. [Loud cheers.]

Welcome to George Thompson (1840). A reception to George Thompson, in Faneuil Hall, November 15, 1850, was broken up by an angry mob. The meeting was therefore adjourned to Worcester, and supplemented by other meetings in several cities. At the reception in Lynn, November 26, 1850, Mr. Phillips delivered the following speech:-- This is certainly, fellow-citizens, a glad sight for my eloquent friend to look upon; these enthusiastic crowds, pressing to extend to him a welcome, and do thup full as much of the last spasms of defeated Whiggery,--Webster Whiggery, I mean,--as of hatred for George Thompson. [Cheers.] And it is in connection, partly, with this point, that I hail these tokens of welcome extended to him here, and at Worcester, as of especial value. It is of great importance, just now, that the South and the nation should understand Massachusetts. Mr. Webster has been trying to persuade everybody that he is the State. Some leading presses have labored to show that

.] Our welcome to George Thompson to-night is only the joy we have in grasping his hand, and seeing him with our own eyes. But we do not feel that, for the last fifteen years, he has been absent from us, much less from the battle to whose New England phalanx we welcome him to-night. Every blow struck for the right in England is felt wherever English is spoken. We may have declared political independence, but while we speak our mother-tongue, the sceptre of intellect can never depart froo superficial structure like the Capitol at Washington, which man put up and man can pull down again. It is an oak, striking its roots through the strata of a thousand customs; to uproot it would shake the continent. It is the granite of the New England formation, basing itself in the central depths, peering to heaven through the tops of our mountains, and bearing on its ample sides the laughing prosperity of the land. The wind of the blow that shall be aimed at free speech will strike the U

r the benefit of his health. In Italy invalids are always recommended to secure the southerly side of the house. Mistaken man! how wild in him, an invalid, to take so Northerly a view of this great question! [Cheers.] But for this, like the pliant Irishman, he might have moved in the best society! Could he but have chanced to be born in Ireland, and have early contracted the habit of kissing the Blarney stone of every nation, instead of shivering here beneath that North Star,--which South Carolina, it is said, intends to forbid her pilots to steer by, it is so incendiary a twinkler! [laughter and cheers]instead of this, he could repose his wearied virtue -- Where the gentle south wind lingers, 'Mid Carolina's pines; Or falls the careless sunbeam Down Georgia's golden mines.

While things remained as w, at least, the question is settled where Massachusetts stands; so unequivocally, that even the Dan reply to some taunt of Hayne's, There is Massachusetts! Behold her, and judge for yourselves! T doubts our position, let us cry, There is Massachusetts! Behold her, and judge for yourselves! Teers.] Mr. Curtis defended the right of Massachusetts to surrender the fugitive slave, on the grby yielding to its noblest instincts; that Massachusetts cannot now afford to be humane, to open hesome shadow of claim to plausibility. But Massachusetts has pledged her whole strength to the slave free arms to God, and thank him, not for Massachusetts' mercy, but for Massachusetts' justice andMassachusetts' justice and consistency.
