and that he wrote after the disheartening meeting at Mr. Collier's, and one cannot but be struck by the vigor, courage, and prophetic confidence of the writer. In this article the number of anti-intemperance societies then existing was estimated as rather less than one hundred, and of anti-slavery societies as upwards of one hundred and thirty,—most of them in slave States and of Lundy's formation, among the Quakers. Allusion was made to the colonization of one thousand colored people in Liberia, and the emigration of seven or eight thousand more to Hayti within four years, and to the fact that influential citizens in the District of Columbia, and in many other places, were then signing petitions to Congress for the abolition of slavery in the District. If this important principle be recognized by that body, said the editor, it will be a bright omen of the future emancipation of the whole country. The formation of peace societies was also noted with satisfaction by him. The br

perpetual alarm; how, in addition to these, shall we be able to contend successfully with millions of armed and desperate men, as we must eventually, if slavery do not cease? At the conclusion of Mr. Garrison's address Mr. Plumly, an agent of the American Colonization Society, briefly urged its claims to support, and a collection in aid of it was taken up; but, beyond what is quoted above, the orator of the day said nothing in favor of the Society, except to commend the infant colony of Liberia. The Boston American Traveller of three days later contained a notice of the discourse, in which the orator was described as of quite a youthful appearance, and habited in a suit of black, with his neck bare, and a broad linen collar spread over that of his coat. His prefatory remarks were rendered inaudible by the feebleness of his utterance; but, as he advanced, his voice was raised, his confidence was regained, and his earnestness became perceptible.

ciety. No man contemplates with more intense interest and unmingled satisfaction the colony at Liberia than the subscriber. I have elsewhere termed it the lungs and heart of Africa, full of generoued slaves, I view the republic of Hayti with a favourable eye. In many points it is superior to Liberia. Its climate is more salubrious, its government is stable, its locality is near, and transportileges. Our free coloured people, moreover, generally cherish less repugnance to Hayti than to Liberia. But while I would encourage every feasible plan for the reduction of this part of our populon he could concerning the Haytian government and people.

d their usual frequency and measure. In attacking the principles, and exposing the evil Lib. 1.65. tendency, of the Society, we wish no one to understand us as saying that all its friends are equally guilty, or actuated by the same motives. Nor let him suppose that we exonerate any of them from reprehension. When it was reported that certain persons, in a distant part of the State, scrupled to subscribe for the Liberator because they favored gradual emancipation with transportation to Liberia, We are glad to learn, he said, that some Lib. 1.117. have even a perverted conscience in that place; for on the subject of slavery we feared they had none at all. The Quaker mode of extinguishing slavery by abstaining from its products still commended itself to Mr. Garrison. The free States, he says, in the second Lib. 1.5. number of the Liberator, receive and consume the productions of slave labor! The District of Columbia is national property; slavery exists in that District!

Fifty years later (1881) a friend of colonization and Liberia, after reviewing the deplorable condition of the republic, concludes: We shalle condition imposed upon us, and do not persist in crowding upon the shores of Liberia ship-loads of poor, ignorant, and improvident negro laborers, to die or to degsport them all in less than thirty years; while its pretence that only through Liberia, Sierra Leone, and similar colonies can the slave trade be abolished, conceals one of whom, to my knowledge, has emancipated any of his slaves to be sent to Liberia!!

He is now painting a portrait of Ashmun Jehudi Ashmun, the militant agent of the American Colonization Society, who went out to Liberia in 1822.

ommendation of the enterprise had been restricted to the colony at Liberia; that, relying upon the information which Mr. Cresson had given hithe abolition of slavery as altogether delusive. The influence of Liberia on the slave trade would be limited to its petty territory. The on these grounds, therefore, and while we acknowledge the Colony of Liberia, or any other colony on the coast of Africa, to be in itself a goo so strongly impressed in favor of the Colonization Society and of Liberia. It happens that the individual who, of all others in England, ex statements which served to represent the Colonization Society and Liberia in glowing colors, and to place their opposers in a disgraceful atslaves had been offered to the Society gratuitously, to be sent to Liberia. This unparalleled liberality seemed to me to be indeed the work s cruel mockery to say that the persecuted and oppressed exiles to Liberia had gone with their own consent, cheerfully and voluntarily; that

se addressed the Society, and pointed the contrast between October, 1833, and May, 1834, by defending his friend against the charge of having slandered his country Lib. 4.79. abroad. Still another church was found in which to protract the meeting, which in all occupied four days. The Colonizationists, who had held a counter meeting in palliation of slavery, kept aloof till a pretext for interfering was furnished by the unfavorable testimony of a returned colonist as to the condition of Liberia. The last two days, at the Chapel, were marked by interruptions, and at the close on Saturday afternoon the hall was seized by Gurley, the Rev. G. W. Bethune, a Methodist bishop from Virginia and others, for a colonizationist demonstration. Some of the ruffians bawled Lib. 4.79. out for Garrison, but he was out of their murderous reach. This was far from satisfying the Courier and Lib. 4.85. Enquirer, which warned the abolitionists never to meet again in New York. Disregarding t

was very interesting and called out strong character and ready speaking. I was on the committee too to draft the Constitution which differs somewhat from our Free Religious Association (as does the name Association of Liberal Thinkers). The best known people in it were Voysey (a small and narrow soul who got alarmed and withdrew), Leslie Stephen (who married Miss Thackeray), Stuart Glennie (who wrote the account of Buckle's Eastern travels), G. J. Holyoke (veteran radical), Mr. Blyden of Liberia (black and Mohammedan who has written on that subject in Fraser), Mrs. Rose (formerly of N. Y.), A. J. Eyres the philologist, and various Unitarian ministers. I spoke several times and twice succeeded in allaying incipient contests by suggesting phrases that reconciled different opinions, so that one speaker proposed to send me as arbitrator to reconcile the strikes now going on at the North, and they all laughed and applauded.

incoln proposed colonization as a scheme for disposing of the freed people who, under the name of contrabands, flocked to the camps of the Union armies, and he gave no word to awaken the hopes of the emancipationists that he would ere long initiate an active anti-slavery policy. The message seemed to Mr. Garrison feeble and rambling, and he Lib. 31.194. could find nothing to praise in it except the recommendation that Congress should recognize the independence and sovereignty of Hayti and Liberia. To Oliver Johnson he wrote: What a wishy-washy message from the President! . . . Ms. Dec. 6, 1861. He has evidently not a drop of anti-slavery blood in his veins; and he seems incapable of uttering a humane or generous sentiment respecting the enslaved millions in our land. No wonder that such villanous papers as the Journal of Commerce, the New York. Express, Bennett's Herald, and the Boston Courier and Post, are his special admirers and champions!
