This vessel hails from my native place (Newburyport, Mass.), and belongs to Francis Todd.—So much for New England principle!— Next week I shall alludn this nefarious business. I have stated that the ship Francis hails from my native place, Newburyport, (Massachusetts,) is commanded by a Yankee captain, and owned by a townsman named Francis Todat God and good men regard it with abhorrence. I recollect that it was always a mystery in Newburyport how Mr. Todd contrived to make profitable voyages to New Orleans and other places, when otherent: A suit has been commenced against the Editors of this paper, by Mr. Francis Todd, of Newburyport, (Mass.,) for an alleged libel published in our Black List Department of Nov. 20, 1829.

The arrivals of these cargoes of living freight were reported in the newspapers as unblushingly as if they had been cattle, or baloard for them. Needles and thread were provided for the women, the Captain further stated, the entire space between decks was given to the slaves, and a prayer-meeting was held by them every day. When they reached their destination (on the Mississippi river, below New Orleans), they expressed their gratitude to Captain Brown for his kindness to them, and when, later, on his return down the river from New Orleans, he anchored off the plantation, they again thanked him and professed themselves s
people of his color as widely as his means would permit. It seems singular that a production so original, able, and important, coming from such a source, should not have been promptly noticed in the Genius, even if critically and with exceptions; but it was not until the Richmond Whig had reported, with ridicule, the secret session of the Virginia Legislature to consider a message from Governor Giles on the subject, and the Savannah Georgian had announced similar action on the part of Governor Gilmer and the Georgia Legislature, that Garrison alluded to it in any way. After copying the two articles above referred to, he said: We have had this pamphlet on our table for some time past, G. U. E., Jan. 15, 1830, p. 147. and are not surprised at its effect upon our sensitive Southern brethren. It is written by a colored Bostonian, and breathes the most impassioned and determined spirit. We deprecate its circulation, though we cannot but wonder at the bravery and intelligence of

s labors on behalf of the slave. Walker did not long survive the third edition of his pamphlet, dying on June 28, 1830— some thought by foul play, as a price was set upon his head at the South; but this surmise was incorrect. His noble intensity, pride, disgust, flerceness, his eloquence and his general intellectual ability, have not been commemorated as they deserve. (See May's Recollections, p. 133, and Lib., 1.17.) He is a unique figure in the anti-slavery movement. The late Rev. Henry Highland Garnet reprinted the Appeal in 1858, but this edition has become as scarce as the original. A copy of the third edition is in the May Collection at Cornell University, inscribed Rev. Samuel J. May, from his friend and admirer, Wm. Lloyd Garrison. Mr. Garrison was never acquainted with Walker. who printed and circulated it among people of his color as widely as his means would permit.

The Governor submitted these documents to the House of Delegates on February 16, and the communication was laid on the table. (See Richmond Enquirer, Feb. 18, 1830, and Boston Courier, Feb. 26; the Abolitionist, monthly, 1.98; Williams's History of the negro race in America, 2.553.) From internal evidence it appears that the third edition of the Appeal was published shortly after March 6, 1830. It was wholly reset, and contained many corrections and important additions, both to the body of the text and in the shape of notes. The additions were for the most part explicitly indicated, and were designedly of a character to justify the epithet sanguinary applied by Mayor Otis. They favored a servile insurrection as soon

The result was a furious riot lasting three days—during which the persons, homes and property of the blacks were at the mercy of the mob—and the final flight of more than a thousand of them to Canada. (See Wilson's Rise and fall of the slave power in America, 1.365.) the editors of the Genius naturally took a deep interest, urging the establishment of schools and the formation of temperance societies among them; The labors of the Rev. Simeon S. Jocelyn among the colored people of New Haven were deservedly praised and commended as an example of what should be done in other places. Jacob C. Greener established a school for orphan and indigent children in Baltimore, and a colored temperance society was also formed there. The erection of a college, on the manuallabor system, was proposed privately, though no reference to it appears in the Genius (Lib. 1.111). and Mr. Garrison wrote thus in their vindication: There is a prevalen

He evidently took little interest in Liberia, and, as has been already mentioned, had early expressed his distrust of Ante, p. 91. the Colonization Society, because it did not make emancipation a primary object, but was actively supported by G. U. E., Mar., 1824. prominent slaveholders like Clay, Randolph, and Bushrod Washington. Hayti was near our own shores, and its Government was ready to give land to all immigrants who would settle upon it, while a few large land-owners offered to pay the cost of transportation of such as would come from the United States. Few were tempted even by these inducements, and the fruitless insertion of the following advertisement in the Genius for several successive weeks indicated that the eagerness on the part of many slaveholders to liberate their slaves, if free transport

If he wishes to discuss the subject of slavery, or to complain of any slander of his character, I shall be happy to see him at my boarding-house, No. 135 Market Street, where I will endeavor to convince him that he is pursuing a wicked traffic; or if I fail in the argument, I will make a public apology for my strictures upon his conduct. Let me assure him, however, that I am not to be intimidated by the utterance of any threats, or the perpetration of any acts of violence. Dieu defend le droit.—W. L. G. Garrison early declared against paying any money compensation to slaveholders for emancipating their slaves; and in reply to the inquiry of a colonizationist,— Who can doubt that it might be the soundest policy to extinguish the master's claim throughout our territory at the price of six hundred millions of dollars? he said: We unhesitatingly doubt it, in a moral point of view.

We should be sorry to have this practice become general. There would then be no question agitated in Congress without eliciting the informal and contrarient opinions of the softer sex. Forty years later, his friend Mrs. Abby Kelley Foster, at a Woman Suffrage meeting in Boston, laughingly confronted him with these longforgotten words of his; to which he rejoined, Whereas I was blind, now I see. He had not yet outgrown sectarian narrowness, and he still denounced Paine and Jefferson for their infidelity, and lamented because a fete was given to Lafayette in France on the Sabbath.
