positive tyranny, which ought to be resisted by all the Lord's freemen, all who are rejoicing in the glorious liberty of the sons of God. In support of this position he cited the authorities just enumerated (in the letter to Henry Benson), whom he confessed he had consulted for the first time after his review of Dr. Beecher, being ignorant till then of the views of any commentator. He had, as he expected, brought down upon himself the mint-and-cummin editors of the Vermont Chronicle, New Hampshire Observer, and their kind. The Observer, in order to injure the anti-slavery cause through him, had alleged that he did not belong to the Church of Christ. This was true: On account of many religious scruples, we have not felt at liberty in conscience to become the partisan of a religious sect, nor to bind ourselves by a human creed, nor to unite in the observance of certain forms and ceremonies. The Observer had furthermore charged that he kept his eye fixed intently on one object. N

It is fortunate for the country that the good sense, the Lib. 5.199; Benton's Thirty Years View, 1.575. generous feeling, and the deep-rooted attachment of the people of the non-slaveholding Statesate where it was prohibited. But the Senate threw it out by a majority of six, with Benton, Clay, and Lib. 6.103, 104; Benton's Thirty years view, Vol. 1, Chap. 131. Crittenden among them. Meantime the debate had been raging over the treatment of, the article appointed a convention of the slaveholding States to assume towards the North the relation of open enemies (Benton's Thirty years view, 1: 610). Mass. Senate Doc. No. 56, 1836. from Alabama, from Georgia, from Virginia. But the resultatisfied with the Compact, as was John Quincy Adams, so far as concerned the bare admission of Arkansas as a slave State (Benton's Thirty years view, 1.636). Benton compliments the Northern members of Congress on their magnanimity in voting to ratify

the common law would serve the purpose, had been referred by the Massachusetts Legislature to a joint committee of five, of Account of the Interviews, etc.; Lib. 6.43, 46, 49; May's Recollections, pp. 185-202. which Senator George Lunt (from Essex County) was chairman. Before this committee, on the 4th of March, 1836, the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society was, on its own request, granted a hearing, less in self-exculpation than in order to defeat the Southern and pro-Southern design on a comy outworks. A New York Abolitionist, writing to the Lib. 6.141. Liberator, whom we can certainly identify with Lewis Tappan, saw in the Sabbath discussion the germ of animosity and contention among brethren. At the semiannual meeting of the Essex County Anti-Slavery Society Lib. 6.158. on September 15, a resolution of Charles Burleigh's, urging support of the Liberator, found Sabbatarian objectors, though the vote was finally unanimous. A week later, Mr. Garrison writes to Mr. May, from Bro

But the result was not encouraging. Mr. Garrison, writing from Newport, June 22, 1836, of the abandonment of the attempt to pass in the Rhode Island Legislature Lib. 6.73. resolutions advising punishment of the abolition conspirators, reviewed the situation at that date: A gentleman from Dover informs me, that the committee Lib. 6.107. appointed by the New Hampshire Legislature to consider and report upon the pro-slavery documents from the South, have not been able to agree, and the whole subject has been postponed to the next session, which is tantamount to an indefinite postponement. The subservient element prevailed at the next session (Lib. 7: 14, 25), but legislation against the abolitionists was discountenanced. The legislatures of Maine and New York have adopted some we

r. Garrison writes from Brooklyn to Henry Benson: My review of Dr. Beechers speech seems to Ms. make some fluttering in certain quarters, especially my remarks upon the sanctity of the Sabbath; on the 18th Ms. he reports to the same that further censure had been visited upon him, as he had anticipated; and on the 21st, that there was still no end of it: The only thing that I regret is, the insertion of a Ms. communication by Knapp, (written by friend Oakes William Oakes, of Ipswich, Mass.), headed The New and old Puritans, because it is written in a manner Lib. 6.122. calculated to exasperate, and not to convince. I know how important it is that I should keep the columns of the Liberator clear of sectarianism, nor have I ever intended to assail any denominational feelings or peculiarities. The Sabbath question is not sectarian, but general—yet the discussion of it is not exactly proper in the Liberator. I have received several letters remonstrating with me on account

he theological schools and reviews maintained their Lib. 6.69. evil traditions. The Princeton Biblical Repertory found a clear sanction for slaveholding in the Scriptures, and admissions in the New Testament of its consistency with the Christian character and profession. Leading Northern publishers apprised the South of their resolve to Lib. 6.71. reprint no English work involving a condemnation of slavery, and not to make their publications a medium of incendiary circulation. One in Baltimore expurgated an English history of the United States that had Lib. 6.156. been found objectionable on this score in South Carolina. To make assurance doubly sure, General Duff Green obtained of the Legislature of that State a charter for a Southern Literary Company, to prepare school-books Lib. 6.173, 206. suitable for a slaveholding community. The main business of the abolitionists, besides extending their organization,—which they did at the rate of Lib. 6.183. nearly one new societ

life-blood beating warm, Strange thoughts within me generate and swarm; Streams of emotion, overflowing, rise; Such joy thy birth affords, and glad surprise, O nursling of the sunshine and the storm! Bear witness, Heaven! do I hate Slavery less,— Do I not hate it more, intensely more,— Now this dear babe I to my bosom press? My soul is stirred within me—ne'er before Have horrors filled it with such dire excess, Nor pangs so deep pierced to its inmost core! IV. Bone of my bone! not all Golconda's gold Is worth the value of a hair of thine! Yet is the Negro's babe as dear as mine-- Formed in as pure and glorious a mould: But, ah! inhumanly 'tis seized and sold! Thou hast a soul immortal and divine, My priceless jewel!—In a sable shrine Lies a bright gem, ‘bought with a price’ untold! A little lower than th' angelic train Art thou created, and a monarch's power, My potent infant! with a wide domain, O'er beast, bird, fish, and insect, is thy dower: The Negro's babe with thee

The Legislature of this State [Rhode Island] resolves to do nothing upon the subject. What will the South say now? South Carolina said, speaking through Governor Mc-Duffie's message, that but three of the States in which Lib. 6.201. abolition societies had been formed had even con 6.173, 206. suitable for a slaveholding community.

nd dollars to our cause. George Blake, of Boston, (though opposed to the abolitionists), said that our fundamental principles were incontrovertible; that slavery could not long continue in our land; that it stood on the same level with the Genthoo sacrifices; and that he did not believe a man, or any body of men, could be found in that assembly, who would dare to propose any law, or any resolutions, censuring the antislavery society, or any other. Mr. Rantoul of Gloucester, Mr. Foster of Brimfield, Mr. Hillard of Boston, Mr. Longley of Festus Foster. Thomas Longley. Joshua H. Ward. Gilbert H. Durfee. [Hawley], all spoke in favor of our rights; also, Mr. Ward of Danvers, and Mr. Durfee of Fall River. Mr. Durfee said he was proud to acknowledge himself as one of the proscribed abolitionists, and he thanked God that he stood where he could vindicate his own rights and the rights of others. A motion was now made to lay our memorial upon the table—ayes 204, noes 216. It was then ref
