ociates, if you will close your mouth on the slave question, you may reckon on our undivided support on Irish matters. Whenever your country's claims come up, you shall be sure of fifty votes on your side. No! said O'Connell; let God care for Ireland; I will never shut my mouth on the slave question to save her! [Loud cheers.] He stood with eight millions whom he loved; he stood with & peasantry at his back meted out and trodden under foot as cruelly as the Magyar; he stood with those behi us in the House of Commons, O'Connell would leave any court or any meeting to be present at the division, and vote on our side. That is the type of a man who tries by its proper standard the claims of all classes upon his sympathy. He did for Ireland all that God had enabled him to do; but there was one thing which God had not called upon him to do, and that was to speak a falsehood, or to belie his convictions. He did not undertake to serve his country by being silent when he knew he ought
Jefferson City (Missouri, United States) (search for this): chapter 8
Georgia setting a price on the head of a Boston printer; senators threatening to hang a brother senator, should he set foot in a Southern State; the very tenants of the pulpit silenced, or subjected to a coat of tar and feathers; one State proposing to exclude the commerce of another; demagogue statesmen perambulating the country to save the Union; honest men exhorted to stifle their consciences, for fear the Ship of State should sink amid the breakers; the whole nation at last waking to Jefferson's conviction, that we have the wolf by the ears; we can neither hold him nor safely let him go, --yet this man, whose tempest-tossed life has somewhat sharpened the eyes of his soul, can see only a solid basis of Liberty No tyrant to throw the apple of Eros in the Union; to raise the fury of hatred in thy national family What place has such fulsome and baseless eulogy on the lips of a truthful and honest man? I have a great deal more of the same tenor, but I shall weary your patience.

Well, then, he is a patriotic anddevoted Hungarian, -grant him that! He loves Hungary so much that his charity stops at the banks oquestion of the liberty of twelve millions in Hungary is as much a question of Austrian politics, ase there is discomfort in that one chamber of Hungary. What would have been his tone in answering ome here on the glorious mission of redeeming Hungary. God speed him in every step — in every honee did not send Kossuth into the world to save Hungary.

t me preface what I have to say with a single remark about America. You will recollect the old story of the African chief, sd support its cause. Europe has many things to learn from America. It has to learn the value of free institutions, and the lips of Louis Kossuth. Happy art thou, free nation of America, that thou hast founded thy house upon the only solid basiy that this has been the general tenor of his addresses in America. Now, he says, I do it because I love Hungary so much. ns of his puppet, the Emperor of Austria. What says he to America? I do not wish to be entangled with American politics. Ain the way of humanity and justice; that man, who comes to America and goes not to the prison of Drayton and Sayres, to the chat his philanthrophy shrinks before the public opinion of America. No! We do not know that he was ever afraid of anything be, how many despot hearts may we comfort, to help God save America? None! [Great cheering.] No, he did not send us into the

for the perpetuity of slavery (every man, North or South, acknowledges it),a war which even the Senate of the United States pronounced wicked and unnecessary; which the noblest intellects of the land have reprobated; which all parties have justified on the ground of its necessity to preserve the Union by aiding slavery, and not on the ground of justice, of humanity, or of liberty. What does he say of it? Take, for instance, the glorious, --we sent out a party from a slave State across to Mexican territories: we, Protestants, set up slavery on the soil which Catholics had purged from the stain,--Take, for instance, the glorious struggle you had not long ago with Mexico, in which General Scott drove the President of that Republic from his capital. Mark you that language! I shall have occasion to refer to it again. I know how to read your people's heart. It is so easy to read it, because it is open like Nature, and unpolluted (!) like a virgin's heart (!!). Many others shut the

Would he not blush to stand so near even to Austria, who compels her peasantry to learn to read, ind in any German paper, at the very fount of Austrian despotism, such advertisements as daily fill -Fayette goes to Vienna for help. He goes to Austria for help on his side in French politics, as ellow here for? I do not wish to meddle with Austrian politics. The question of the liberty of tweria? Who is Haynau? The culminating star of Austrian atrocity, --the general whose name recalls everything that is most monstrous in Austria's treatment of down-trodden Hungary. Haynau! What was iot a word of the language which he applied to Austria that is not equally applicable to the land wh ourselves which is not equally applicable to Austria. I send Fayette, therefore, to Austria.

Kossuth (Mississippi, United States) (search for this): chapter 8
and replace it with the form of the great Hungarian. This, then, is my purpose,--to look at Kossuth as the slave would look at him. Let me preface what I have to say with a single remark about Amants? [Tremendous cheering.] Just such is the message that the American slaves send back to Kossuth, Recreant! If you could not speak a free word for liberty the wide world over, why came you to the torment, the destruction which he may bring upon any other. Now that, in another form, is Kossuth's patriotism. I love Hungary, says he; stand aside all ye other races! I will so mould my lanntinued cheers.] Now, this is the exact difference which the Antislavery world recognizes in Kossuth. He is the man who has been content to borrow his tone from the atmosphere in which he moved. ; and is willing to be as good as its power is great !!! Does the great statesman-like heart of Kossuth believe all this? If he does not, is the most devoted lover of liberty ever bound to lay on he

r act was the act of the people, and above the notice of the judiciary! Free as the land, the beautiful surface of whose Ohio was polluted by the fragments of three presses,--the emblems of free speech,--and no tribunal has taken notice of these deeds! Free as the land, whose prairie has drunk in the first Saxon blood shed for the right of free speech for a century and a half,--I mean the blood of Lovejoy! Free as the land where the fugitive dares not proclaim his name in the cities of New England, and skulks in hiding-places until he can conceal himself on board a vessel, and make his way to the kind shelter of Liverpool and London! Free as the land where a hero worthy to stand by the side of Louis Kossuth — I mean Ellen Crafts [great cheering]--has pistols lying by her bedside for weeks, as protection against your marshals and your sheriffs, your chief-justices and divines, and finds no safe refuge until she finds it in the tender mercies of the wife of that poet who did his se

of your country's power; it is jealous of its own dignity; it knows that it has the power to restore the law of nations to the principles of justice and right; and knowing itself to have the power, it is willing to be as good as it is powerful. These are the twenty millions of people whom George Thompson, with such striking truth, has described as engaged in one great slave hunt, with their President at their head, pursuing a poor, trembling fugitive, flying for refuge to the flag of Great Britain, on the other side of the lakes. Your people have that instinct of justice and generosity which is the stamp of mankind's heavenly origin (!!!). May your kind anticipations of me be not disappointed! I am but a plain man. I have nothing in me but honest fidelity to those principles which have made you great, and my most ardent wish is, that my own country may be, if not great as yours, at least as free and as happy, which it will be in the establishment of the same great principle

Certainly. We go where we are magnetically drawn; we cannot resist rushing into the arms of those whose hearts beat responsive to our own. If a Socialist visits Paris, he goes to Prudhomme. If an Antislavery man goes to Paris, he goes to De Broglie. As Dr. Jackson said of his lamented son, who died recently in Boston, in whateParis, he goes to De Broglie. As Dr. Jackson said of his lamented son, who died recently in Boston, in whatever company he went he nailed his flag high, that all men might know his principles. [Cheers.] Now, I say, that Louis Kossuth did not nail the flag of his principles high to the mast; if he had, Hangman Foote would never have invited him to Washington. The world-wide love of man, the burning enthusiasm, the hatred of all oppressias done service to his kind, if he be one who loved only his own race or color or country, and stopped there,--who loved a Frenchman because he was himself born in Paris; or, born in London, was ready to serve all Englishmen,--if he were one who has rendered some great service to a single nation, or loved his own race and hated all
