er of sectaries, largely non-voters, who disowned the limitations of the Constitution, and the considerable political party which accepted its obligations; and this while speaking in presence of two senators then representing that party, Hale and Chase,—the latter second only to himself as a lawyer and statesman, and destined to the highest judicial office in the nation. In the Emancipator and Republican, June 27, 1850, Henry Wilson gave a full account of interviews with Webster from 1845 topower in the direction of his Seventh of March speech. That speech carried the Compromise measures, but it made also a political revolution in Massachusetts. If Webster had spoken as he had hitherto always spoken, if he had spoken as Seward and Chase spoke later in the same month, he would have remained in the Senate; or if he had by choice passed from it, he would have been succeeded by Winthrop. That speech, and what he said and did afterwards in the same line, called Sumner, a few months

n the Senate I predict great weight for my friend, the new senator from Ohio, Mr. Chase. He is a man of decided ability, and I think will trouble Calhoun on the slad and well-trained lawyer, and is a grave, emphatic, and powerful speaker. Mr. Chase spoke against Clay's Compromise, March 26 and 27, 1850, making the most thorod,—the Free Soilers. Hale sustains himself with great address and ability, but Chase is a, person of a higher order of capacity. As to Webster,—Emerson calls him aighty pulpit from which the truth can be preached. I think that Mr. Hale and Mr. Chase should in the course of the session present a complete review of slavery, usi deal of speaking before any important votes. I anticipate much from my friend Chase in the Senate. He is an able lawyer, and of admirable abilities otherwise. on were out of the way, I think it could be easily vindicated to the States.

The line of division as to politics betweenthen controlled by the slaveholding interest. Chase and Sumner were well known to each other befor. In character, presence, and style of debate Chase and Seward were the peers of any who have evers audience. They believed that whatever gifts Chase and Hale might have, Sumner stood before all osuch a privilege. In the debate of August 26, Chase made the point that the usual courtesy was denthe Virginia Resolutions of 1798 and 1799; but Chase and Sumner never advanced to that position. Tblic forms a part of the annals of the world. Chase defended Sumner's choice of time, to which he y in its extinction.

II. pp. 567, 568. while others could not at once overcome a deep-seated distrust growing out of his twenty years subserviency to the slave power, or the suspicion that his new attitude was due to the fact that his term as senator was near its end. Chase wrote Sumner, Jan. 18, 1858, that Douglas was seeking a suspension of hostilities until his re-election became sure. His speeches in the celebrated debate with Mr. Lincoln, a few months later, justified this distrust and suspicion. Sumner wrote to E. L. Pierce from Washington, April 11, 1858: I know Douglas thoroughly; and I think there cannot be too much caution in trusting him.
