cretary. 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 strongly against the asserted right of visit and inquiry, whether as a right of search or as a more limited right of inquiry for verifying nationality; Letters to Mr. Cass of April 5, 1842, and to Mr. Everett of March 28, 1843. Webster's Works, Vol. VI. pp. 329-346. and publicists generally are in accord with him. President Woolsey, however, regards the distinction between search for ascertaining nationality and search which goes further, as entirely reasonable in the light of justice.— Introduction to the Study of International Law, § 201. The Treaty of Washington, which he negotiated, provided, however, for naval co-operation in the suppression of the slave-trade.

rring words that shall move the whole land. Send them home, and we will publish them. To Thomas Crawford, Rome. Boston, May 14, 1842. my dear Crawford,--. . . After I had completed my subscription for the Orpheus,—that is, after I had got all the names on paper that I supposed would subscribe,—I put the subscription-paper into a pigeon-hole without collecting the money, where it lay undisturbed, among other documents, till I was aroused from my slumbers by your most welcome letter of Jan. 4. . . . I read Greene's letters in the Knickerbocker with great pleasure. 1 fear that there is but little chance of any great change with regard to his consulate. Perhaps you are aware that I made an effort to bring about some improvement. He wrote letters to members of Congress and persons of influence in behalf of the Consulate at Rome. Mr. Webster said there would be no difficulty in appropriating one thousand dollars to our Consul at Rome, by way of salary; and said that he would
tional law, his only published article, during the year 1842, was a review of Professor Greenleaf's treatise on the Law of Evidence, then first issued. American Jurist, July, 1842, Vol. XXVII. pp. 379-408. In the early part of the year he taught in the Law School as Judge Story's substitute. His social life varied this year little from what it had been during the two preceding. In the spring he visited New York with Prescott,—their special errand being to meet Washington Irving. In January he had many pleasant interviews with Dickens, who brought a letter to him from John Kenyon, and who was grateful for his kindness. Dickens's Life, Vol. I. p. 305. Late in August he met Lord Ashburton, who was then in Boston, and visited with him places of interest in the city and suburbs. With Lord Morpeth, who was journeying in various parts of the country, he continued his correspondence. Morpeth sailed on his return Sept. 29. Sumner passed the last five days in New York with him,—

f a scholar and gentleman, and is in very pleasant contrast to the balderdash of Stevenson. I wish he had not begun, I must be more or less than man. Is this not too trite? Speech at Manchester, England, May 25. 1842. Mr. Everett, in the revision of his speeches, omitted the phrase to which Sumner objects. Orations and Speeches, Vol. II p. 424. Enter Cushing, L. S.; then enter Howe. The two are debating high politics. Good-by. Love to Cleveland. To Lord Morpeth. Boston, Aug. 3, 1842. my dear Morpeth,—This will find you, I trust, with a safe scalp, far away from the wigwams and council-fires of the red men. I wonder at the variety and complexity of your travels. The whole continent will be reticulated by the lines of your journeys. Quebec is imperial. How much superior to Ehrenbreitstein!—as much so as the power of England (with her zone of military music about the earth) is more imposing than that of Prussia. Quebec and Montreal both have a European air, prese

vers a discourse on the day before, in commemoration of the second centennial anniversary of the graduation of the first class of the University. Come and hear it. This will be a literary festival, characteristic of the country, and everybody will be glad to see you. I am going, for a few days, among the hills of Berkshire with my sisters; but I shall always be within hail from Boston. Good-night. As ever, ever yours, Charles Sumner. To Professor Mittermaier, Heidelberg. 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 schola

uld send instructions to our ministers to discontinue their uniforms,—the Kow-towof Europe. Ever and ever yours, Charles Sumner. To Dr. Lieber he wrote, Jan. 11, 1842:— Howe will soon publish another report on Laura. She, poor girl, was delighted at his return. She cried with joy; and her nervous excitement deprived her fingers for a while of the power of language. To Jacob Harvey, New York. Boston, Jan. 14, 1842. My dear sir,—I have been much gratified by your letter of Jan. 12, which I have just received with the newspaper containing an able article on War with England. I agree with you entirely with regard to the Creole affair,—except, perhaps, that I go further than you do. In the first place, England cannot deliver up the slaves who are not implicated in the mutiny and murder by which the government of the ship was overthrown. She has laid down a rule not to recognize property in human beings since the date of her great Emancipation Act. The principle of

a perfectly lawful voyage, and taken by mutineers into a foreign port, her officers were entitled by the comity of nations, while at such port, to the aid of the Government in whose jurisdiction the port is situated in maintaining their authority, and should be protected from any interference with the relations and statusof persons on board existing under the laws of the United States. Mr. Webster, during the negotiations of the Treaty of Washington, again pressed this view. Letter of Aug. 1, 1842. Works, Vol. VI. p. 303. See Wheaton's International Law (Dana's edition), pp. 165-167. The British Government refused to restore the slaves; but Mr. Joshua Bates, as umpire under the Convention of Feb. 8, 1853, held that the owners had a just claim against it for pecuniary indemnity. The reasons which he gave for his decision are open to the same criticism as are the arguments of Mr. Webster's letter. While confining the controversy to the case of a vessel driven by maritime disaster o

anding these differences in opinion and action, he had never any controversy with the Abolitionists. They usually treated him with exceptional good — will and confidence; and if any dealt harshly with him, he made no public answer,— simply saying to any one who called his attention to their criticisms: We are all striving for the same end,—they in their way, and I in mine; and I can have no controversy with them. His view of the policy of the Abolitionists is shown in a letter he wrote April 9, 1850, in reply to a friend who justified his own opposition to the Anti-slavery movement by urging their violent language:— I have read the Liberator more or less, since 1835. It was the first paper I ever subscribed for. His subscribing for the Liberator at that early day was an exceptional case in his profession. Few lawyers read it, much less subscribed for it. Ellis Gray Loring and Samuel E. Sewall,—the latter still living,—were conspicuous instances of the few Antislavery l

ufficient defence for any marine tort. To Dr. Channing he wrote, March 31, 1842:— I ought to apologize for the freedom with which I have marked the proofs and appended notes. To Dr. Channing's pamphlet on The Duty of the Free States. Believe me, I do not presume upon the value of any of the suggestions I have ventured to make, but offer them only for the consideration of your better judgment, if you have time and inclination to look at them. To his brother George he wrote, April 1, 1842:— Dr. Channing has put forth a glorious pamphlet on the Creole, in reply to Webster's sophistical despatch. One feels proud of being a countryman of Channing. His spirit is worthy of the Republic, and does us honor abroad. His is a noble elevation, which makes the pulses throb. The paltry, uncertain, shifting principles of Webster's letter are unworthy of him. The question of slavery is getting to be the absorbing one among us; and growing out of this is that other of the Union
