of the Free Soil convention at Buffalo; and the Oregon bill was passed just after its adjournment. The New York Tribune, though afterwards supporting Taylor, ascribed to the convention the passage of the bill without any concession to slavery. Giddings, in a letter to Sumner, Sept 8, 1850, considered that the Free Soil movement saved California to freedom. The Democratic national convention meeting at Baltimore in May, 1848, nominated Lewis Cass for President. He had been an unhesitating ported an address and resolutions; six delegates at large, with Adams's name at the head, were chosen to attend the convention at Buffalo. Among the speakers were Allen, Wilson, Amasa Walker, Joshua Leavitt, Adams, Sumner, Keyes, E. R. Hoar, J. R. Giddings, and L. D. Campbell, the last two from Ohio. Early in the day Sumner read a letter from Dr. Palfrey (then in Congress) approving the objects of the meeting, and moved a vote of thanks to Allen and Wilson. His speech at the City Hall in the

Some Whigs, like Rockwell and Mann, both of Massachusetts, who had Free Soil sympathies, were in doubt on the Texas boundary question, and gave conflicting votes. (Giddings's History of the Rebellion, p. 328; Mann's Life, pp, 316-329.) Mann, who was well disposed towards Winthrop, thought he ses—yes, many hearts—now turn towards the defender of peace, of freedom, of the prisoner,— in a word, of human progress. Giddings wrote, November 25, rejoicing at the result of the election, as a rebuke of Webster and Winthrop; and a month later: Thel 25. The antislavery people through the free States received the tidings with profound gratitude.

f Kentucky, who entered Congress in December, 1852, late in his life, told the writer that the South felt that Sumner was the only Northern man who would never under any circumstances swerve from his position, and the only one whose conversation outside of the Senate corresponded fully to his declarations in it. This statement is introduced here, not as a correct estimate of other Northern leaders, but as the Southern view of them. He was not sincerer in conviction or firmer in purpose than Giddings; but far more than that veteran of the House he could by his wide range of thought and research, and by his confessed powers as an orator, force the attention and respect of a hostile assembly. Sumner continued at his desk after his speech till the session of the day closed. He spoke briefly in favor of an allowance to the widow of A. J. Downing, the rural architect, partly for arrears of his salary as superintendent of the public grounds in Washington. Clemens, who had not yet recover

he two conventions. An account of a conference at Dr. Bailey's office in Washington, D. C., before the election of 1852, is given in the Reminiscences of the Rev. George Allen, pp. 99, 100, purporting to have been obtained by Mr. Allen from Mr. Giddings on the latter's visit to Worcester, Mass., at some time later than 1852. Conferences were probably held at Dr. Bailey's house; but Mr. Allen's report of what Sumner and others said is not authentic. Chase's inclinings were not, as stated by een looking forward to the leadership of his party in 1856; but its present rout, rather than defeat, clouded his future in that direction. The Free Soil national convention at Pittsburg in August, of which Wilson was president, and Adams and Giddings were members, nominated John P. Hale for President, and George W. Julian for Vice-President. Adams on his way home wrote to Sumner, August 15, from Niagara Falls: My Pittsburg visit has done me good, by convincing me that the movement is more s

ken words. More than all, the public admired the fearless and defiant spirit with which he confronted the slaveholding senators. For the first time in our history he had won for the cause of free debate in the Senate what John Quincy Adams and Giddings had won for it in the House. The change of feeling towards him was most marked Different types of men, conservative as well as radical, Compromise men of 1850 as well as Free Soilers of 1848, came into sympathy with him.

You don't know how rejoiced I am that a Northern gentleman and scholar has met them in the true spirit of a cavalier. Our rough men, like Giddings, have met them; but rarely if ever have our gentlemen and scholars joined battle with them. It is atrocious that Pettit, Clay, Butler, and the others were not called to order; but I suppose the rules of order, like all the other laws of our rep

Sumner maintained, as was his habit, reserve as to the question of candidate, writing to E. L.
