ord the loss. My money does go as no other money seems to go. I verily believe, if I had a million it would slip through my open fingers. Similar mishaps befell him in later life, when he could better bear them. He had another in 1859 on the train between Washington and Philadelphia, and still another about the same time at a station in Boston. After delivering his address at Union College he visited Saratoga, where Dr. Howe joined him, and thence he made an excursion to Trenton Falls, Niagara, and Geneseo, at which last place he was a guest at the Wadsworths'. One who heard him at Union College wrote that he made an impression as an orator in whom it is hard to say whether the gifts of nature or the accomplishments of art in its highest sense are most pre-eminent. W. M. G. in the New York Tribune, July 29. George Ripley replied, June 8, 1849, in the same journal, to some criticisms on the address, and received a note of thanks from Sumner. This was the beginning of their ac

Pearson, a Boston merchant, arrived in the harbor, having the negro on board, whom the captain had discovered some days after sailing from New Orleans. The negro showed no ordinary enterprise and alertness, and succeeded in escaping to the mainland; but the captain, after a pursuit of two miles, retook him in the streets of Boston, charged him with theft, and forced him on board the Niagara, a barque bound for New Orleans, which, though kept in the harbor for some days by a storm, eluded a steamer which had been despatched with a State officer to serve a process for the rescue of the negro. The capture was unlawful; the pursuing captain was a volunteer in a service which was odious to all men of honorable sentiments; and the jurisdiction and process of the State had been treated with contempt. The circumstances certainly invited an expression of public indignation. John A.

m to his house in the neighborhood, where was only his family; after dinner we were joined by William H. Channing. 1810-1884; an American divine of the Unitarian faith, then in charge of a church in Liverpool; nephew and biographer of William Ellery Channing. November 7. Saturday, my appointed day of sailing. Mr. R. at eleven o'clock drove me to the Adelphi Hotel; at twelve o'clock to the pier, where I embarked on a small steamer with the passengers and their luggage for the steamer Niagara, a Cunard packet bound for Boston; at about three o'clock all was ready, and the voyage commenced. November 17. Tuesday. At midnight reached Halifax. The voyage has not been very rough; the first days were even pleasant; but I have suffered as ever from sea-sickness, and have not yet taken a single meal at the table. Much of my time has been passed in my state-room. . . . Went ashore at Halifax, and took a stroll through Mud and darkness; soon returned to the ship. November 18. At
