ge man at the time we are chronicling really believed that the Abolitionist was a criminal in essence, and ought to be proclaimed as such by law. The Anti-slavery writers, in describing this period, use the terminology of fiercer times. Harriet Martineau calls it a Martyr age, and we constantly hear of the reign of terror in 1835. Now the term persecution is apt to call up in our minds the fiercest images of history, scenes of bloodshed and tyranny, combats with wild beasts in the amphith should do something to suppress Anti-slavery. The first hearing in the matter was held on March 4th, 1836, at the State House. The audience was so large that the Hall of the House of Representatives had to be used. Many women, including Harriet Martineau, were there, and the social, political and mercantile classes of Boston were represented. When the meeting came to order Samuel J.

for knowledge which educated people are prone to. But, take him for all in all, I know no such other man. His children are most affectionate and free with him — yet they have their own opinions and express them freely, even when they differ most widely from his. . . . People who travel together have an excellent opportunity of knowing and testing one another. . . . I have never on the whole known a man who bears to be more thoroughly known, or is so sure to be loved and reverenced. Harriet Martineau has left us a record of her first impressions in all their freshness:--At ten o'clock he came, accompanied by his introducer. His aspect put to flight in an instant what prejudices his slanderers had raised in me. I was wholly taken by surprise.

ater. They loved him; they doted on him, and he on them. As we have seen, George Thompson came to America in 1835, as an apostle to the Abolition Cause. Harriet Martineau came as a traveler in the same year. By her writings, and especially by her Martyr age in America, she explained to the English mind the Anti-slavery situaton that you are returned to England, and I look forward with great happiness to meeting you in these better times, writes the Duchess of Sutherland in 1867. Harriet Martineau wrote just before her death in 1876: I can say no more. My departure is evidently near, and I hold the pen with difficulty. Accept the sympathy and reverent blessing of your old friend, Harriet Martineau. I have watched his career with no common interest, even when I was too young to take much part in public affairs; and I have kept within my heart his name and the names of those who have been associated with him in every step he has taken. It is John Bright who spoke thus, at

ying scene, he testifies himself, I felt perfectly calmnay, very happy. It seemed to me that it was indeed a blessed privilege thus to suffer in the cause of Christ. Death did not present one repulsive feature. The promises of God sustained my soul, so that it was not only divested of fear, but ready to sing for joy. This same courage enabled him to stigmatize the outrage in his paper according to its deserts, and never for an instant did he alter his tone from any sense of fear. Harriet Martineau, who was visiting America at this time, gives her impressions of Garrison's appearance and manner. It was a countenance glowing with health, and wholly expressive of purity, animation and gentleness. She found sagacity the most striking attribute of his conversation, which was of the most practical cast. The year 1837 showed a marked improvement in New England sentiment. While it is true that the Congregational Church protested against the discussion of certain topics in meeting-

wers of influence, persuasion and truth. And Garrison was the true prophet of such a peaceful method. He had the genuine spirit of reform which we might do well to accept from him as an inheritance. He was, indeed, to use his friend Quincy's words, uttered as early as 1838, one of those rare spirits which heaven at distant periods sends upon the earth on holiest missions. He was, as all such men are, in advance of his time,--too great . . to be a representative man at present, as Harriet Martineau declared, but, she added, his example may raise up a class hereafter. Such an example is indeed full of inspiration for those who see in the world around them many evils not altogether unrelated to those against which Garrison struggled so long and so faithfully. But wherever the cause of justice may call us, let us be careful to go in his spirit, for, as one of his fellow-workers truly said, Non-resistance is the temper of mind in which all enterprises for humanity should be underta

n the exceedingly frank and temperate manner in which you have treated the subject. If all Abolitionists were like you, there would be much less opposition to your enterprise. But, sir, depend upon it, that hair-brained, reckless, violent fanatic, Garrison, will damage, if he does not shipwreck, any cause. Stepping forward, I replied, Allow me, sir, to introduce you to Mr. Garrison, of whom you entertain so bad an opinion. The gentleman you have been talking with is he. Or take Harriet Martineau's first impressions on seeing him. His aspect put to flight in an instant what prejudices his slanderers had raised in me. I was wholly taken by surprise.

ogether different fit did it but know that Garrison was watching it from the window of the very room where a few weeks before he had nearly fallen into its clutches. Garrison remained in Boston two weeks, going about the city, wherever and whenever business or duty called him in a perfectly fearless way. He left on the afternoon of November 18th. On that same afternoon the Boston Female Anti-Slavery Society held a memorable meeting at the house of Francis Jackson. It was then that Harriet Martineau, another foreign emissary, avowed her entire agreement with the principles of the Abolitionists, which subjected her to social ostracism, and to unlimited abuse from the pro-slavery press of the city. The new hatred of slavery which the mob had aroused in Boston found heroic expression in a letter of Francis Jackson's replying to a vote of thanks of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society to him for his hospitality to the ladies after their meeting was broken up by the mob.
