Biographical sketch of Wendell Phillips. Universal liberty was the inheritance of Wendell Phillips. The blood of unmitigated Puritan and of unsullied Revolutionary sires ran in his veins. Freedom of thought and of religion had been the stamping-ground of his ancestors. He strove for them, no less than for freedom of being and of action. Born in Boston,--of which city his father, John Phillips, was the first mayor,--on the 29th of November, 1811, he was early destined to strange distinctions. In 1831 he was graduated from Harvard College; in 1834 he completed a course of study at the Harvard Law School, and received the degree of bachelor of laws. In the same year he was admitted to practise at the Suffolk bar. To him, however, the law was not the all-absorbing study of a lifetime; and, impatient of its details, he sought recreation in the exciting topics of the times. Already, when he came to sign the roll of the court as a member of the bar of Suffolk, had he ventur

He might then have chosen a subject upon which all persons would have agreed; but, had he done so, he would not have been Wendell Phillips. For him it was an opportunity, and in his address on The scholar in the Republic, he delivered one of the most remarkable efforts of the century. Mr. Phillips spoke for the last time in public, on the occasion of the unveiling of the statue of Harriet Martineau in the Old South Meeting-house, Dec. 26, 1883. His days came to a close on Feb. 2, 1884. The cause of his death was angina pectoris. No eulogy of Wendell Phillips is required. A man whose name is stamped upon every page of the most memorable epoch of American history is not likely to be soon forgotten. No age ever produced a greater master of invective, no voice ever aroused a more bitter hatred in unsympathetic minds. They who the most keenly felt the sting of his eloquence c

ning the gamut of the harp of hearts. In January, 1832, the Anti-slavery Society was formed, just a year after William Lloyd Garrison had begun the publication of The Liberator in Boston. Who can forget the names of those noble-minded men and womo the great struggle which was Impending. In the crowded thoroughfares of Boston, he found the mission of his manhood. Garrison had just been driven from an anti-slavery platform. A mob had wrought the deed: the Puritan and patriot, the cultured ahable resolves, witnesses the events of a day. His soul knows the manhood of force, as well as the eloquence of speech. Garrison is being dragged through the streets of Boston; the young man follows, while respect for law, peace tenets, and personaloting in his brain. Pregnant liberty is heaving in the qualms. The mob, incited by the cries to violence, lay hands on Garrison, put a rope around his waist, and drag him to imprisonment! What a memorable day for the Puritan city! The abolitionis
