-slavery movement in America, and he had replied, By giving us George Thompson. This unexpected answer of the American appeared without doubnational act of such importance and delicacy as the sending of George Thompson to America. He questioned whether the national self-love of tair hearing in consequence. But Garrison was confident that while Thompson's advent would stir up the pro-slavery bile of the North and all tsions for him in this regard. Well, after due deliberation, George Thompson consented to undertake the mission to America, and the Englishenough for Mr. Garrison to prefer such a request after hearing George Thompson speak. For he was one of those electric speakers, who do withican audiences as well. But in this he was somewhat mistaken, for Thompson had to deal with an element in American audiences of which he had , ergo, the importance of suppressing the incendiaries. Down with Thompson!

n the loss of his home, or that of the office of the Liberator, was the loss of his friend, George Thompson. It seemed to him when the English orator departed that the paragon of modern eloquence, a, had left these shores. Garrison's grief was as poignant as his humiliation was painful. George Thompson had come hither only as a friend of America, and America had pursued him with the most rele the first opportunity. On Sunday, November 8, the anxiously looked — for moment came when George Thompson was put upon a packet, in which he sailed for St. Johns, New Brunswick, whence he subsequenn approaching him out of the all-hail hereafter a greater in these identical respects than George Thompson, indisputably great as he was.

he old town, was held December 8, 1837-a meeting memorable as an uprising, not of the Abolitionists, but of the conservatism and respectability of the city in behalf of the outraged liberties of white men. Ever memorable,too, for that marvelous speech of Wendell Phillips, which placed him instantly in the front rank of minds with a genius for eloquence, lifted him at once as an anti-slavery instrument and leader close beside William Lloyd Garrison. The wild-cat-like spirit which had hunted Thompson out of the coun-Iry and Lovejoy to death, had more than made good the immense deficit of services thus created through the introduction upon the national stage of the reform of this consummate and incomparable orator. The assassination of Lovejoy was an imposing object lesson to the North, but it was not the last. Other and terrible illustrations of the triumph of mobs followed it, notably the burning of Pennsylvania Hall in Philadelphia on the evening of May 17, 1838. As the murder of

his groupings of heads he decided to place together the Rev. John Scoble, George Thompson and Charles Lenox Remond. When Scoble sat to him, Haydon told him of his ce, as it would have much greater effect. The painter now applied his test to Thompson who saw no objection. Thompson did not bear the test to Haydon's satisfactionThompson did not bear the test to Haydon's satisfaction, who observed that A man who wishes to place the negro on a level must no longer regard him as having been a slave, and feel annoyed at sitting by his side. But wh him, Haydon records with obvious pleasure, and he met me at once directly. Thompson was not altogether satisfactory to Garrison either during this visit as the following extract from one of his letters to his wife evinces: Dear Thompson has not been strengthened to do battle for us, as I had confidently hoped he would be.

Democratic, as well as of those already mentioned. Uncle Tom's Cabin might fairly be classed among the large indirect results produced by Garrison. But as Phillips justly remarked, Uncle Tom would never have been written had not Garrison developed the facts; and never would have succeeded had he not created readers and purchasers. Garrisonism had become an influence, a power that made for liberty and against slavery in the United States. It had become such also in Great Britain. George Thompson, writing the pioneer of the marvelous sale of Uncle Tom in England, and of the unprecedented demand for anti-slavery literature, traced their source to his friend: Behold the fruit of your labors, he exclaimed, and rejoice. Mr. Garrison's pungent characterization of the Union at the dinner of the Free Democracy as but another name for the iron reign of the slavepower, found almost instant illustration of its truth in the startling demand of that power for the repeal of the Missouri

ugh a radical peace man, how just was his attitude toward the men and the measures of the War for the Union. Nothing that he did evinced on his part greater tact or toleration than his admirable behavior iu this respect. To his eldest son, George Thompson, who was no adherent of the doctrine of non-resistance, and who was commissioned by Governor Andrew, a second lieutenant in the Fiftyfifth Massachusetts Regiment, the pioneer wrote expressing his regret that the young lieutenant had not beeninced in a signal and memorable manner a little later when the National Government extended to him an invitation to visit Fort Sumter as its guest on the occasion of the re-raising over it of the Stars and Stripes. He went, and so also went George Thompson, his lifelong friend and coadjutor, who was the recipient of a similar invitation from the Secretary of War. This visit of Mr. Garrison, taken in all its dramatic features, is more like a chapter of fiction, with its strange and improbabl

Chapter 21: the last. Garrison, said George Thompson on the steamer which was conveying the Government party out of Charleston Harbor on their return trip; Garrison you began your warfare at the North in the face of rotten eggs and brickbats. Behold you end it at Charleston on a bed of roses! The period of persecution had indeed ended, the reign of missiles had ceased, but with the roses there came to the pioneer not a few thorns. Bitter was the sorrow which visited him in the winter of 1863. Without warning his wife was on the night of December 29th, stricken with paralysis, which crippled her for the rest of her life. No words can adequately express all that she had been to the reformer in his struggle with slavery. She was a providential woman raised up to be the wife and helpmate of her husband, the strenuous man of God. As a wife for a period of more than twenty-six years, he wrote her on the completion of her fiftieth year, you have left nothing undone to smooth the
