hed in the National Intelligencer, Feb. 5. They reply at length to the positions taken by Mr. Stevenson, the American Minister, in his correspondence with the British Foreign Secretary. The second is a rejoinder to an article of Mr. Perkins, of Salem, who, in a communication to the same newspaper, had reviewed Sumner's first article. The article of Mr. Perkins was published in the Advertiser, Jan. 21. Mr. Webster, in his subsequent correspondence as Secretary of State, contended strong but Longfellow has written the best that have been written in the language. I return you your notes on the Right of Search. I sent you, some time ago, a reply to my article which appeared in the Daily Advertiser, written by J. C. Perkins, of Salem,—a lawyer of great attainments and acuteness in his profession. I have taken up the subject again,—partly to rejoin to him, and partly to consider several points which I have heard started in various places on the subject. In my second article,

I say, constantly, cui bono, all this travel? Far better to be at rest in some one place, hiving up from books, study, and meditation, rather than this perpetual attrition with the world. There is an article by George in the July number of the North American, on the affairs of Afghanistan and British India generally.. God bless you! Ever and ever yours, Charles Sumner. To his brother George, London. the letter replies to criticisms of his brother upon English society, as compared with the French. Boston, July 6, 1842. my dear George,—. . . You enjoy conversation on politics, statistics, and history. Do you sufficiently appreciate talent out of this walk? For instance, Kenyon does not care a pin's fee for these topics; but he is exuberant with poetry and graceful anecdote:

Boston, Aug. 4, 1842. my dear friend,—I am ashamed that I have left your kind letter of Feb. 8 for so long a time without acknowledgment; but various calls have absorbed my time, and I now write in haste in order to introduce to you my friend, Mr. Wheeler, Charles S. Wheeler, who died at Leipsic, in 1843, at the age of twenty-six. who has been for some time a tutor in Harvard University. He has published a valuable edition of Herodotus, and has otherwise made himself very favorably known to the scholars of my country. He hopes to pass several months in delightful Heidelberg; and I wish to commend him to your kind attentions during his stay. I send you two copies of the sixteenth report of the Prison Discipline Society; also two copies of Dr. Howe's Report on the Blind, embracin

he will do. He is deeply in debt, and with habits that will render professional exertion irksome. From his fate we may learn that office is not worth seeking. To Rev. Edgar Buckingham, Trenton, N. Y. Mr. Buckingham is the son of Joseph T. Buckingham, for many years editor of the Boston Courier. he was Sumner's schoolmate at the Boston Latin School, and was in Harvard College, of the class succeeding Sumner's. He lived, in 1842, at Trenton, Oneida County, N. Y., and now lives at Deerfield, Mass. Boston, Sept. 2, 1842. my dear Buckingham,—I address you with the familiarity of an ancient schoolmate; for well do I remember those lessons in early days, which we recited together. I thank you very much for the oration you were so good as to send me. I admire the frankness and spirit with which you turned the celebration of the Fourth of July to an occasion for moral improvement. I wish that for ever this day might be set apart throughout the whole country as the National Sabbat
ection. In politics he is a moderate Whig. He is a warm but kind Churchman, and is a most delightful character. In all his views he is pure and elevated; in conversation, modest, quiet, and unambitious, but sensible, well-informed, and with that tinge which every English gentleman, no matter what his pursuit, has derived from the classical fountain. He will be a true friend to you, if you care to cultivate his friendship. He will advise with you about your travels in the country and in Ireland, where he has been. I also inclose a line for Joseph Parkes, a solicitor by profession, but one of the most learned lawyers in England, a strong Radical, a friend of the late Jeremy Bentham and Lord Durham, who takes a great interest in American affairs. He will take you to the Houses of Commons and Lords. Through him you may become acquainted with all the Radicals, —the Grotes, Roebuck, Charles Austin, Sir William Molesworth, Leader, &c. You will, of course, see Kenyon, who is a ver

post, p. 238. while it has given much pleasure to the friends of the slave, has been made, by ingenious and Jesuitical glosses, to reflect upon their conduct and furnish a slur against them. I forward a paper containing some comments on your letter,—which, I regret to say, have been too generally approved by the generality of the people. I have promised to reply to these comments, and shall do it immediately. All that I shall undertake to show will be that we at the North are not foreigners, so far as slavery is concerned, and that we are not busying ourselves with matters which do not belong to us. Repudiation in the sovereign State of Mississippi excites the indignation of the Northern States; but we are silent in view of the injustice to the slave, perpetrated by the same State. Your friends are all well. Mrs. R. regrets that you have favored the Abolitionists even as you have done. I told her that I should let you know her opinion. God bless you Ever, ever yours, C. S

ve forwarded it to him. Dr. Howe's report on the Blind Asylum is published, and is a noble contribution to the cause of humanity. The story of Laura Bridgman, as told by him, warms with magic influence the hearts of men. She throws untold interest about the blind, and the sympathy excited by her remarkable case is extended to a whole class. I send you the School Journal, containing a part of the report, and some admirable remarks by Mann. He has recently returned from the convention at Utica, where, I am told, he did a great deal of good. Everybody listened while he spoke, and wished him to speak all the time. If Hillard and myself can be of any service to you in Boston, during your absence, I hope you will command us as your sincere friends. Charles Sumner. To Lord Morpeth, Cincinnati. Lord Morpeth, while at Cincinnati, wrote to Sumner: I left Cincinnati with regret. I liked its aspect, picturesque and novel, and I liked much a Mr. Chase I met there. the gentleman

tune and a large house are required for the successful administration of these rites; and old Coke, by age, frankness of manner, and wide acquaintance with men, had become the chief of hosts. The closing of his gates will create a chasm in the Whig circle. Lord Fitzwilliam receives largely, but he does not know how to entertain; Lord Spencer does not choose even to receive; and Lord Lansdowne seems to content himself with his largess of hospitality in London and his Christmas rejoicings at Bowood. Old Coke will be missed very much. The other evening I received my annual discourse from Mrs. Howe Mrs. Judge Howe, of Cambridge. on the married state. She thinks me erring, and hopes that I shall yet come into the fold, though her hopes in me appear to diminish. She shall think more favorably, she says, of my condition when I am more taciturn on this most important subject. Have you read Edward Everett's speech? It is in the Advertiser of Friday (to-day).
