o the Advertiser's defence of Winthrop. After an argument showing that the bill, being practically a declaration of war, and containing a national falsehood, should have been opposed by the entire Massachusetts delegation, he reiterated his expressions of respect for Winthrop's character and attainments, and of the pain which he felt in being obliged to condemn his public action. In a note to Winthrop, August 5. he announced himself the author of the two articles. Winthrop replied, August 7. stating that he had already connected Sumner with them, and complaining that they misrepresented his whole conduct, and appeared to be intentionally offensive to him personally. He said: I cannot conclude without reciprocating your regret that anything should occur to interrupt our pleasant relations, nor without expressing the hope that circumstances may occur which may enable us to restore them without the sacrifice of self-respect on either side. To This Sumner replied August 10.

uld not, therefore, had I been in your place, have predicated any action of mine upon the grant by them of any favor whatever. They cannot afford to be generous or even just. If you can get even that to which you have a clear right, you will do pretty well; but to get it you will have to fight for it. There remained now but one mode of obtaining a hearing,— the moving of an amendment to one of the appropriation bills, which are left to the closing days of the session; Seward wrote, August 7: Sumner will try to be heard on the civil and diplomatic appropriation bill, and he has, a clear right. But what are rights in the Senate to such as him and me in this period of demoralization? and of this last resort Sumner determined to avail himself by moving an amendment repealing the Fugitive Slave Act. He communicated his purpose to those who had his confidence, but as far as possible kept it from the public. Fearing that if it were known, the appropriation bill would be held back

moments before, Mr. Fish voted on an appeal from the decision of the chair. Fessenden gave his vote for the repeal, while Hamlin remained discreetly silent. As a member of the committee on pensions, Sumner attended faithfully to matters referred to it, as appeared from the reports he submitted and the bills he pressed to a passage. He took an interest in questions of procedure, and his incidental remarks at different times showed close attention to public business. The session ended August 7, and Sumner arrived home on the 13th. Sumner's course during the session, in connection with his character and position, brought to his support the mass of the clergy of his State. He had already among them many friends and admirers, who recognized in his arguments for peace and freedom the moral elevation of his aims. Such were Woods and Storrs, the seniors of those names, among Trinitarians; and A. P. Peabody, Livermore, Francis, and Clarke, among Unitarians. But now, with rare exc

ional Globe, p. 1399; Sumner's works, vol. IV. pp. 281-301. Sumner in his speech kept within the limits of parliamentary invective as practised in the houses of Congress and in the British Parliament. London Star, June 21. the London Times, August 7, in referring to the speech as an alleged provocation for violence, said: The speech was elaborately strong, but not stronger than many delivered within the walls of our own Parliament during the discussion on the Reform and Emancipation bills. A like honor came the same year from Amherst College; but it did not come from his own Alma Mater (Harvard) till three years later. In Europe, particularly in England, the assault was recognized as an event of grave import. London Times, August 7; London News, September 1; Daily News, September 1; London Morning Star, June 24 (article written by Henry Richard); Sumner's Works, vol. IV. p. 326. George Cornewall Lewis called it the beginning of civil war. Henry Reeve also heard him sa

en famille. August 5. Mr. Parkes breakfasted with me; at ten o'clock left London; took the train to Godalming, where I got upon the outside of the stage-coach for twenty-four miles on my way to Mr. Cobden's at Midhurst, passing the great estates of Petworth, now in the hands of Colonel Wyndham. Mr. Cobden was waiting for me at half-past 6 o'clock, and drove me to his pleasant home. August 6. Rode on horseback with Mr. Cobden to the Downs; several of the neighbor squires to dinner. August 7. Mr. Cobden drove me in an open wagon to Chichester (twelve miles), where I was to take the train for Weymouth; visited the cathedral there, where are works of Flaxman and the tomb of Chillingworth; lunched at the house of a cousin of Mr. C. August 10. Left Jersey at half-past 10 o'clock; arrived at Granville about two o'clock; the tide did not allow us to enter the harbor, and we landed on the rocks, going ashore in a small boat; the police came aboard, and with them the secretary of th
