give fair-play to the emancipated. I was much pleased with his spirit, and the familiar and candid way in which he unbosomed himself. Last evening I spent with Solicitor Whiting (the brother of William Whiting. Anna), and had a good time. Solicitor William Whiting, whom Secretary Stanton appointed to expound the war powers of the Government under the Constitution, especially as relating to slavery, was a son of Mr. Garrison's early and steadfast supporter, Col. William Whiting of Concord, Mass. In his interview with the President, Mr. Garrison said to him: Mr. Lincoln, I want to tell you frankly that for every word I have ever spoken in your favor, I have spoken ten in favor of General Fremont; and he went on to explain how difficult he had found it to commend the President when the latter was revoking the proclamations of Fremont and Hunter, and reiterating his purpose to save the Union, if he could, without destroying slavery; but, Mr. President, he continued, from the ho

In this new role he made a speech in opposition to the Lib. 34.87, 94. resolution endorsing Mr. Lincoln, but without the slightest effect, for it was carried by acclamation. His utter failure to influence the Convention Mr. Phillips made special and unsuccessful efforts, also, to have an anti-Lincoln delegation sent to the Baltimore Convention from Vermont (Ms. June 13, 1865, S. May, Jr., to Mary A. Estlin). served to intensify the bitterness with which, in a speech before the Emancipation League, four days later, he spoke of Mr. Lincoln, Lib. 34.86. declaring that, as the President had delayed so long before touching slavery, while he had suspended habeas corpus (the barriers of liberty set up two hundred years ago) in sixty days, no negro in America owed anything to him. Mr. Lincoln, he asserted, did not desire to crush the rebellion, and

The Republican National Convention met in Baltimore on the 7th of June, and unanimously nominated Mr. Lincoln for a second term. Among those who witnessed its proceedings, from the gallery, was Mr. Garrison. He was revisiting Baltimore for the first time since 1830, having just come from the Progressive Friends' Meeting at Longwood, with Theodore Tilton, editor of the New York Independent. Of the Convention Mr. Garrison wrote, on his return: It was well worth going from one end of the country to the Lib. 34.102. other to witness its proceedings; yet it came in my way incidentally, and I was glad to have the opportunity to be a looker — on in Venice.

My charge, he said, against the Administration, as anless cheering than these gains was the action of the newlyreconstructed States of Arkansas and Louisiana, in adopting free Constitutions, the former by popular vote, and the latter by a Constitutionaoffences, in the eyes of Mr. Phillips and his supporters, was his apparent willingness to have Louisiana readmitted to the Union without enfranchising the freedmen.

The amendment was earnestly opposed by Mr. Phillips, who instanced the President's attitude towards the Ante, p. 85. Missouri radicals, his pains to humor Kentucky (the Gibraltar of the Border-States obstacle), and his recent Amnesty proclamation, in confirmation. Mr. GarrisonAnte, p. 85. had no apology to make for the Amnesty, which he had elsewhere condemned in uneqed in favor of the reelection of Abraham Lincoln; so that its duty was simply to record its votes for the man thus unmistakably designated. From Maine to Oregon, the response was the same, with the single exception of the Radical delegates from Missouri, who, on the first ballot, voted for General Grant, in accordance with their instructions; and then transferred their votes to Abraham Lincoln, making the grand total of 519 for his reelection.

Passing from these, he replied specifically to Phillips's current criticisms and complaints, expressing his conviction that the people could not do better, politically speaking, than to reelect Lincoln, and that they ought, as a matter of justice and to vindicate the democratic principle, to keep him in office until he should be the acknowledged President of the whole United States. He also animadverted upon the Convention which was to meet in Cleveland the following week, May 31, 1864. to nominate Fremont for the Presidency: Gen. Fremont, as yet, has not shown a single State, a single Lib. 34.94. county, a single town or hamlet in his support. Who represents him from Massachusetts, on the call for the Cleveland Convention?
