Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Letters and Journals of Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Chapter army life and camp drill (search)
a season of undisturbed chastisement, beyond reach of Miss Laury, was too much for me. The Oaks, Sunday, October 25 The weather is growing cold; to-day it is quite raw and uncomfortable. The family have partly gone to the church where it is Communion Sunday. They have it once in three months, and they say the elders pull away at the wine in a style which is quite vivacious; they use a dozen bottles for several hundred people, and then take up a collection to pay for it. Camp Shaw, November 13 . . . There is a perpetual chatter of jackdaws, a black, glossy bird, intermediate between the blackbird and crow in size, which congregates in immense flocks at this season, soaring and alighting in great armies. November 21 I believe I have a constitutional affinity for undeveloped races, though without any of Thoreau's anti-civilization hobby. I always liked the Irish and thought them brilliant. It is the fashion with philanthropists who come down here to be impressed with

of many slaveholders to liberate their slaves, if free transportation from the country could be secured for them, did not exist to the extent to which the Colonization Society would have had it believed: Emigration to Hayti. G. U. E., Nov. 13 to Dec. 18, 1829.To humane, conscientious Slaveholders. Wanted, immediately, from twenty to fifty slaves, to remove and settle in the Republic of Hayti, where they will be forthwith invested with the rights of free men, and receive constant e indignation aroused by this constant exportation of hapless victims to the Southern markets. The discovery that a Massachusetts man, and one of his own townsmen, was implicated in it elicited his prompt and stinging rebuke. In the Genius of November 13 he wrote, under the Black List, as follows: Domestic slave trade. G. U. E., Nov. 13, 1829, p. 75. This horrible traffic continues to be pursued with unabated alacrity. Scarcely a vessel, perhaps, leaves this port for New Orlea

p.149. The controversy was carried on both by an action of tort and a bill in equity. The pleadings and evidence in the equity suit fill two hundred and sixty-five pages. Sixty-three depositions were taken,—chiefly in the autumn of 1841. The volume containing them bears, on almost every page, several of Sumner's marks and comments. His client contested the validity of the patent on the usual grounds of previous knowledge and use. The trial of the action of tort began before Judge Story, Nov. 13, and consumed eleven days,—resulting in a verdict for Sumner's client on Nov. 26. Boston Advertiser, Nov. 14 and 27, 1844. Sumner spoke ten hours,—beginning on Thursday, and ending the next day. Franklin Dexter, one of the leaders of the bar, was the counsel on the other side. He filed a motion to set aside the verdict; but before the court passed upon it the case was settled by the parties. Sumner made a formidable brief of the law. Mr. Dexter, in filing one which only stated his poi<

to invoke the sentiment of national unity against a party organized on the basis of antislavery ideas. The Atlas denounced the new party as sectional, and promoting disunion, and said the South ought not to submit to its policy, August 26; November 13. though the editor became eight years later an earnest supporter of the Republican party, to which the charge could be equally well applied. The Whig orators joined in this outcry. Choate assailed the Free Soilers as a party founded upon geocal lines. At Salem, Sept. 28, 1848. Others associated them with nullifiers, and held them up as deserving the penalties of treason. Adams, November 9, at Faneuil Hall, made a spirited retort to Winthrop's suggestion. Boston Republican, November 13. The passage of Sumner's speech at Worcester in June, in which he mentioned the secret influence that went forth from New England, especially from Massachusetts, and contributed powerfully to Taylor's nomination, and in which he referred t

Pearson in his letter (Boston Courier, November 13), while stating that he had signed the petition, justified his former action. The hearing of the Burns case, with the popular resistance and the death of Bapeless, but from time to time upbraided the Whig journals and partisans whom it held accountable for the failure,—July 26, 27; August 5, 19, 24, 26; October 24; November 13, 15, 27. This defeat of popular aspirations was a great disappointment to the best people of the State. It kept alive old griefs, and divided into rival and hhad taken, Sumner did not after his speech at Worcester make any political address during the recess of Congress; but his time was well occupied. He delivered, November 13, the evening of the State election, before the Mercantile Library Association, a lecture on The position and duties of the merchant, illustrated by the life of

ediation and intervention in our Civil War, sometimes with the suggestion of force in the background, had been considered by foreign powers. The French emperor, whose mind was set upon interfering in the contest, by a despatch, dated Jan. 9, 1863, to the French minister at Washington, formally offered to mediate between the United States and the Confederates. He had by a despatch, Oct. 30, 1862, sought the co-operation of England and Russia for the same purpose. Earl Russell's reply, November 13, was that the effort was premature. These offers, though firmly rejected by the President and Secretary of State, were an encouragement to the rebellion; and it was thought that the time had come for our government, with a view to end such plots, to take the position by an authoritative declaration that under no circumstances would any foreign power be admitted to a part in the contest. Sumner, therefore, prepared elaborate resolutions for adoption by Congress. He carried them through h

Samuel K. Lothrop, always liberal in thought and genial in personal relations, invited him to meet the Wednesday Club at his house. His colored friend, J. B. Smith, gave him a dinner, with Rev. Dr. Potter of New York, Moses Kimball, and Edward Atkinson among the guests. Sumner wrote to Whittier, November 13:— Last evening I was told that you were in Boston, and to be found at the Marlboroa House. I hurried there at once, and was pained to learn that you had left for home. This was hard for me, for I longed to see you. Why did you not let me know of your visit? It would have been pleasant to review our days and note the great progression of events; and I wished also to look with you at the future, and compare the destinies as we each see them. I confess my anguish when I think of t

rts General Grant as stating that he consented, against his belief, to the inclusion of the indirect claims in the American Case,—doing so at Mr. Fish's request, who thought it necessary to consider Mr. Sumner, then at the head of the committee on foreign relations. If General Grant talked, as he is reported, he committed an anachronism, as the senator ceased to be a member of that committee March 10. 1871. two months even before the treaty was made. The Case was handed to the secretary November 13, eight months after Sumner ceased to be chairman of the foreign relations committee. The next day Mr. Fish wrote to Davis, The President approves of your presentation of the Case. It was not presented to the arbitrators till December 15. the respective dates of the termination of Sumner's connection with the committee and, of the preparation and filing of the Case make it clear that General Grant did not include the indirect claims in the Case for the reason he is reported to have give

ter's subsequent career is well remembered. Behind all was the greed for Cuba and the watching of an opportunity to seize that possession of Spain. The whole transaction, reviving the memory of the Ostend manifesto of Buchanan, Mason, and Slidell, ended in a fiasco. The Virginius was delivered up by the Spanish government; and while being towed as a trophy by one of our war ships to New York, she went to the bottom off Cape Fear. I left Boston for Europe, May 20, and was absent till November 13. For the few days after my arrival home Sumner remained in the city. I sought his rooms at the Coolidge House as often as each alternate morning, reaching his door before he had completed his dressing, and remaining till after his breakfast. I brought him a can of honey from Hymettus; told him what I had seen in Europe,—Rome, Sicily, Athens, Constantinople, the Danube, and the exposition at Vienna,—and described the spectacle I had witnessed when John Bright resumed public activity aft

Today we have accounts of terrible import from Charleston and Savannah. They will have to submit to the will of the majority in the Union, or go to everlasting smash out of it. My own idea is, that, however the South may fume, fret, and bluster, just now, they will be very calm before next March. . . . . November 13.—Papers still full of Southern secession nonsense. . . . .
