lagrant clerical demonstration in support of it— Lib. 13.23, 35, 38, 39, 63; 14.23. so that the Massachusetts Legislature was satirically petitioned to make the hangman's office a ministerial perquisite. Finally, amid all these phases of opinion, a revolution was taking place which is thus described in a letter of Edmund Quincy's to R. D. Webb: I am told that Garrison's opinions, as well as Rogers's, have Ms. Nov. 27, 1843. been greatly modified of late with regard to the Bible. He is ZZZ27 pretty well satisfied that God has not grown wiser by Cf. ante, 2.426. experience, and that he did not command people to cut their brothers' throats a thousand years before he commanded them to love one another. As a man I rejoice at his progress, but I don't know whether I do as an abolitionist. It was so convenient to be able to reply to those who were calling him infidel, that he believed as much as anybody, and swallowed the whole Bible in a lump, from Genesis to Revelation, both inc

through four pages flows Ere one is packed with tight-screwed prose, Threading the tube of an epistle Smooth as a child's breath through a whistle. The great attraction now of all Is the ‘Bazaar’ at Faneuil Hall, Where swarm the Anti-Slavery folks As thick, dear Miller, as your jokes. There's Garrison, his features very Benign for an incendiary, Beaming forth sunshine through his glasses On the surrounding lads and lasses, (No bee could blither be or brisker,)— A Pickwick somehow turned John Ziska, His bump of firmness swelling up Like a rye cupcake from its cup. And there, too, was his English tea-set, Which in his ear a kind of flea set, His Uncle Samuel for its beauty Demanding sixty dollars duty, ('T was natural Sam should serve his trunk ill, For G., you know, has cut his uncle,) Whereas, had he but once made tea in it, His uncle's ear had had the flea in it, There being not a cent of duty On any pot that ever drew tea. The tea-set was appraised at £ 40. Mr. Garrison's pro

The Apostle was but an incident in Mr. Garrison's activity for the year 1849. He addressed, with Wendell Phillips, the Judiciary Committee of the Massachusetts Lib. 19.38. House in favor of disunion; he presided, at Worcester, Lib. 19.126. over the celebration of West India emancipation, and at the fine anniversary of the American Society in New Lib. 19.78. York; Our meetings, he wrote to his wife (Ms. May 9, 1849), were never before so well attended, and I think never was a deeper impression made. Wendell [Phillips] has, if possible, surpassed himself—he is so ready, so eloquent, so morally true, so sublimely great, that I know not what we should do without him. He is really one of the best and noblest specimens of humanity in this world. he attended the fall meeting of the Pennsylvania Lib. 19.170. Anti-Slavery Society. He wrote freely in the
pt a remedy; and while this Commonwealth has given up all effort to vindicate the rights of its citizens as hopeless and impracticable, under the present Union —it is manifestly the duty of the Commonwealth, as a Sovereign State, to devise some other measure for the redress and prevention of so grievous a wrong, which your petitioners are profoundly convinced can be reached only by a secession from the present Union. Ante, p. 131. On the sixth of May, Mr. Garrison set out for New Monday. York to attend the anniversary of the American Anti-Slavery Society. The air was full of coming violence, of which a truly Satanic Scotchman, James Gordon Bennett, editor of the New York Herald, was the prime invoker. He began on April 30 by charging the religious and Lib. 20.73. philanthropic societies, indiscriminately, that held regular annual meetings in New York, and which were all of one side of thinking in regard to slavery, with having brought the country to the brink of a dissolution o
st important field of labor, and all circumstances pointed to Syracuse as the place for holding the next American anniversary. Driven out of New York city, it could not safely be held in Brooklyn. Moreover, said Mr. Foster: I am willing to encounter mobs if necessary; but if we can accomplish the same object without it, as I think we can in this case, I prefer it rather. Syracuse was, in fine, selected by the Executive Committee when no hall was found to be obtainable in New Lib. 21.59. York or Brooklyn; and Mr. Garrison, accompanied by his Ms. Apr. 20, 1851, S. J. May to W. L. G. wife, rejoined Mr. Thompson under the hallowed roof of Samuel J. May. The meetings, which began on May 7, seemed like a revival of the old anti-slavery harmony and enthusiasm. Mr. Garrison, in order to introduce the Lib. 21.81. newcomers to the citizens of Syracuse, asked Mr. May to read the Declaration of Sentiments adopted at Philadelphia in 1833—proof that the abolitionists were a law-abiding and

I never knew yours fail—no, nor even falter. God bless you for it! But it is getting late, and I must write no more, or Dr. Cabot Samuel Cabot, Jr. will ask, What brought your pulse up so high? Remember me kindly to your wife and your children, to Mr. Wallcut, Mr. R. F. Wallcut. S. May, Jr. Wm. C. Nell. J. B. and J. M. W. Yerrinton. May, Mr. Nell, and the Yerrintons, at the office, and believe me Affectionately and thankfully yours, Theodore Parker. All these losses to the working strength of the abolition body were in the course of nature. When we turn to the political opposition to the Slave Power, we behold a woful spiritual falling off caused by the approaching election. No matter of what party or epoch, our politicians have alternately shrunk and expanded as they had or had not visions of the White
