votes from Winthrop left him without a majority; but on the third ballot his election was effected by the refusal of two Southern members to vote,— Holmes of South Carolina, a Democrat of the Calhoun school, and Tompkins of Mississippi, a Whig, both of whom had previously voted for members who were not candidates.

Adams sent Rockwell and Ashmun with a message to Palfrey requesting him to vote for oombs, who had supported Winthrop two years before, now voted for an independent candidate of their own kind.

Five thousand people answered to the call. It was an assembly distinguished for that loyalty to moral principle which has been the life and glory of New England. Finding no hall large enough, the multitude thronged upon the Common. The venerable Samuel Hoar, whose name is associated with the mission to South Carolina for the protection of the colored seamen of Massachusetts, was called to the chair. S. C. Phillips reported an address and resolutions; six delegates at large, with Adams's name at the head, were chosen to attend the convention at Buffalo. Among the speakers were Allen, Wilson, Amasa Walker, Joshua Leavitt, Adams, Sumner, Keyes, E. R. Hoar, J. R. Giddings, and L. D. Campbell, the last two from Ohio.

by Jefferson Davis, who had resigned,—by the side of Chase, and in close proximity to the senators from Virginia and South Carolina. Butler's seat was immediately before Sumner's, and Mason's immediately behind Chase's. The line of division as totors, those who like Foote supported the Compromise as the best thing for the South, and those like the senators from South Carolina who opposed it from the standpoint of disunionists; and it was conducted with acrimony and personal recrimination beth in the Senate, June 24, 1864, recurred to Hunter's fair conduct on this occasion.

h peculiar satisfaction that I learned your sympathy with what I had recently done in this place. The tone which you helped me adopt so early is most in unison with my present position. On the floor of the Senate I sit between Mr. Butler of South Carolina, the early suggester of the Fugitive Slave bill, and Mr. Mason of Virginia, its final author, with both of whom I have constant and cordial intercourse. This experience would teach me, if I needed the lesson, to shun harsh and personal critin festive or literary occasions to the question of slavery; and others besides Sumner, even on this occasion, assumed the right to make them. For instance, Governor Clifford in a reference to the Constitutional convention, and R. Yeadon of South Carolina in praise of Webster's course on the Compromise. Mr. Everett, in thanking him for the printed copy of his Finger Point from Plymouth Rock, regretted this habit, which he feared would break up patriotic celebrations by turning them into a part

fit by their example. Perhaps the senator from South Carolina [Mr. Butler], who is not insensible to scholars to the plantation manners of the senators from South Carolina and Virginia, applying to them Jefferson's desc, is my answer on this head to the senator from South Carolina. If the work which I undertook has been done ties of a common country; that Massachusetts and South Carolina are sister States, and that the concord of sistran senator from Virginia, and the senator from South Carolina with the silver-white locks—I have replied compa may be otherwise minded, and the senator from South Carolina also; and they will, each and all, act accordinlave States, specially shunning all allusion to South Carolina; but now he accepted the challenge, and in resp apt quotation from Jefferson, the reference to South Carolina as threatening nullification as often as babiesner's questions by admitting the legislation of South Carolina as to colored seamen to be unconstitutional.

on without slavery. The instrument was so drawn as to imply a certain sanction of slavery in whichever way adopted, and the Free State men withheld their votes. It was therefore adopted with slavery, and submitted to Congress by the President in a message, Feb. 2, 1858, in which he declared that by the decision of the Supreme Court slavery exists in Kansas by virtue of the Constitution of the United States, and that Kansas is therefore at this moment as much a slave State as Georgia or South Carolina. Douglas promptly, at the beginning of the session, took ground against the admission of Kansas under that constitution thus forced on the people, maintaining that according to the principle of popular sovereignty the inhabitants should have perfect liberty to vote slavery up or down, and vaunting his indifference as to which they did. He said with emphasis, Why force this constitution down the throats of the people of Kansas, in opposition to their wishes and our pledges? He drew to h

ng measure. He was prompted to meet the general issue at this time by the bolder attitude of Southern members of Congress during the session,—like Hammond of South Carolina, Hunter and Mason of Virginia, Brown and Jefferson Davis of Mississippi,—who had not hesitated to defend the institution as a normal condition of society, beny objecting to the speech, called it elaborate, unsparing, and denunciatory. (Seward's Life, vol. II. p. 457.) His last adjective was misplaced. Chestnut of South Carolina followed Sumner with an outbreak of coarseness and brutality, which began with a sneer at his sufferings, and ended with a disclaimer of any intended violence his apartment at night by friends who persisted in remaining in it. The time for violence in Congress, however, had passed. The advanced Southern men of the South Carolina type, who conceived and executed the previous assault, were now busy with plots for secession and rebellion, and contemplated without passion a speech which, <
