Wendell Phillips, Theodore C. Pease, Speeches, Lectures and Letters of Wendell Phillips: Volume 1, The murder of Lovejoy. (search)
, Rev. E. P. Lovejoy was shot by a mob at Alton, Illinois, while attempting to defend his printing-a menagerie of wild beasts, and the rioters at Alton to the orderly mob which threw the tea overboahe events of the Revolution and the tragedy at Alton. We have heard it asserted here, in Faneuil Htax the Colonies, and we have heard the mob at Alton, the drunken murderers of Lovejoy, compared toy down principles which place the murderers of Alton side by side with Otis and Hancock, with Quinc Mississippi River rolls between St. Louis and Alton; and the conflict of laws somehow or other givstatement which has been made of the events at Alton. It has been asked why Lovejoy and his frienction of the Mayor. There being no militia in Alton, about seventy men were enrolled with the apprersons seem to imagine that anarchy existed at Alton from the commencement of these disputes.

[Enthusiastic cheering.] He says he is not a descendant of the Pilgrims. That is a mistake. There is a pedigree of the body and a pedigree of the mind.

Grant it, and more. When Lovejoy was shot at Alton, Illinois, while defending his press, and his friends were refused the use of Faneuil Hall, William Ellery Channing, William Sturgis, and George Bond, the saints and merchants of Boston, rallied to the defence of free speech. Now we hold meetings onlt broader. That same soil which drank the blood of Lovejoy now sends his brother to lead Congress in its fiercest hour; that same prairie lifts his soul's son to crush the Union as he steps into the Presidential chair. Sleep in peace, martyr of Alton, good has come out of Nazareth! The shot which turned back our Star of the West from the waters of Charleston, and tolled the knell of the Union, was the rebound of the bullet that pierced your heart. When Lovejoy died, men used to ask, taunt
