eased the hostility excited by his presence, which, of itself, was held an ample excuse for mobs. Hie was finally induced to desist and return to England, from a conviction that the prejudice aroused by his interference in what was esteemed a domestic difference overbalanced the good effect of his lectures. The close of this year (1835) was signalized by the conversion of Gerrit Smith — hitherto a leading and zealous Colonizationist — to the principles of the Abolitionists. In Northfield, New Hampshire, December 14, 1835, Rev. George Storrs attempted to deliver an anti-Slavery lecture, but was dragged from his knees while at prayer, preliminary to his address, by a deputy sheriff, on the strength of a warrant issued by a justice, on a complaint charging him with being a common rioter and brawler, an idle and disorderly person, going about the town and county disturbing the public peace.

Her father and mother were Scotch Presbyterians. My grandfather, Richard Ellison, when a young man, had fought at the battle of Boyne Water for King William, and had received some reward which enabled him and his wife to come to America. He joined the colony about Londonderry, New Hampshire, and took up a farm at Northfield, on the Pemigewassett, or main branch of the Merrimack River. Here he had several children, the youngest of whom was my mother. He and his family removed to Canada about the time of my mother's marriage. They were respectable and honorable people, and were certainly long lived, for my mother's sister lived to exceed the age of one hundred and four years.

Over other settlements the scourge swept mercilessly.
