n disconnected topics, like old Billy's negro, chokes me! Excuse this expression of my solicitude and affection. Against such forebodings, Mr. Garrison had not merely the conviction, but the evidence, that the anti-slavery sentiment fostered by the Liberator would compare favorably in point of vitality with that derived from periodicals not open to the reproach of irrelevancy. On August 30, 1838, Mrs. Chapman wrote to him: Wendell Phillips told me, after his excursion through Ms. Worcester County, that the Emancipator left men asleep as to the forwarding of the work, and that he could get no assistance in his labors but from Liberator men. Still, Mrs. Chapman and her sisters, whose exertions at this time may be said to have been indispensable to Mr. Ms. May 25, 1838, W. L. G. to G. W. Benson. Garrison's pecuniary maintenance, knew better than any one else the possible damage to the Liberator from becoming practically the organ of the Non-Resistance Society. Hence the followin

It was prefaced by a fresh allusion to the disadvantage of competition with the Emancipator, sustained by the Parent Society, and the Friend of Man, sustained by the New York State Society, and consequently afforded at a lower rate: Though not yet sufficient to cover all expenses, the Lib. 7.203. circulation of the Liberator is, we believe, as extensive as that of any other anti-slavery journal in this country; .

These were from Goodell's own pen (Lib. 8.158; Goodell's Slavery and Anti-Slavery, p. 469). In New York city, the Emancipator published approvingly the forms of political anti-slavery pledges be

Mr. Dickey even went so far as to call him a Hicksite Quaker—no Lib. 8.46. anti-climax in Cresson's orthodox connection, and quite the equivalent of calling a man an infidel. This latter form had now become the favorite one in the mouths of those clergymen who were seeking to make it a pretext Lib. 8.169. for driving Mr. Garrison from the management of the cause. Such an one, in Vermont, in the early summer, had denounced him from the pulpit as a Sabbathbreaker, an enemy to the Christian religion, a disturber of the peace of society, a violator of all law, both human and divine. Language like this, which might well have been reserved for arch-criminals, could not fail to inculcate a lamentably false idea of Mr. Garrison's moral character among the public at large, and even to disquiet distant friends. In the present instance the following private vindication seemed calle

from Bordentown to Philadelphia, our friends obtained leave of the captain to hold a discussion in the cabin on slavery. Several slaveholders were on board. Alvan Stewart had not spoken more than a minute or two before they began to shout, Down with him! Hustle him out! Throw him overboard! This induced the captain to break up the meeting, but our friends carried on the discussion in private parties until they arrived in the city. When I came on, I was introduced to a slaveholder of Alabama, who shook me by the hand with great courtesy. I took a severe cold by the way, and am very hoarse at present. . . .

He delivered seven lectures there, the people hearing him gladly. We all hopociety. Hence the following letter, which had the desired effect: Miss Anne Warren Weston to W. L. Garrison. Weymouth, Nov. 11, 1838. Ms. I feel as though the interest I take both in the cause of peace and that of abolition, will be a wish to have the cause introduced into the Liberator, would be anxious to take a paper wholly devoted to it. I think in Weymouth twelve or fifteen subscribers might be obtained, and I presume that wherever Mr. Wright lectures he might obtain a largeforward my views. P. S.

, five-sixths of the ministers of Franklin County, of all denominations, united in Lib. 8.91. a declaration against slavery and in favor of immediate emancipation; and in the same spirit, but more weightily, a clerical convention assembled at Worcester delivered Lib. 8.33. itself, under the inspiration and leadership of the Rev. George Allen. Side by side with this moral and religious quickening, the political measures already employed by the abolitionists not only were maintained, but asersigned, legal voters in the city of New York, will not vote for any man as Representative to Congress who is not in favor of the immediate abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia, etc. At the impressive Young Men's Convention held at Worcester, Lib. 8.159, 161, 162.

The light of the fire must have been seen a great distance. At midnight, by the advice of friends, I left the city with a friend in a carriage, and rode to Bristol, a distance of twenty miles, where I took the steamboat next morning for home. From the Needles's, whose mob-threatened home he quitted, on the night of the burning of the hall, with the parting benediction, Peace be with you, Mr. Garrison took refuge, by invitation, at the friendly house of Morris L. Hallowell, No. 240 North Sixth St., where the Junior Anti-Slavery Society had gathered to meet Henry C. Wright. About two o'clock the next morning (May 18) a covered carriage was driven

And while silence was thus imposed on States as upon individuals, in regard to vital and fundamental political questions, because slavery was involved in them, Senator Preston, the colleague of Calhoun, was winning the applause of his section by declaring in his seat, that if an abolitionist come within the borders of South Lib. 8.11. Carolina, and we can catch him, we will try him, and, notwithstanding all the interference of all the governments of the earth, including this Federal Government, we will hang him. This lawless and savage threat was heard without remonstrance by the senators from Lib. 8.159, 161. Massachusetts—Daniel Webster and John Davis. It remained for a Northern doughface, Charles G. Atherton, of New Hampshire, to offer the fourth gag-rule, Lib. 8.202. devised by a pro-slavery caucus

He made a very able argument, and was replied to by a Rev. Mr. Powers, of Scituate, but in a feeble manner. In the evening, Dr. Follen made a long and Chas.
