Francis Jackson Garrison, William Lloyd Garrison, 1805-1879; the story of his life told by his children: volume 1, Chapter 11: first mission to England.—1833. (search)
per to state in what manner the mind of this venerable philanthropist became so strongly impressed in favor of the Colonization Society and of Liberia. It happens that the individual who, of all others in England, exerts the most influence over Clarkson's mind, is the main pillar of Mr. Cresson's support—namely, Richard Dykes Alexander, a wealthy and respectable member of the Society of Friends. As Clarkson has entirely lost his sight, this gentleman reads and answers many of his letters, and ease of life before him, surviving till 1846. we found to be very beautiful. On alighting at his door, Mr. Paul and myself, at the request of Mr. Alexander, strolled about the serpentine paths of the Park, while he went in to ascertain whether Clarkson's health would permit an interview at that time—as, a few days before, he had injured one of his legs severely against the shaft of his carriage. In about twenty minutes we were called into the house, and were met by Clarkson totteringly suppor

ious cause we have (Ms.). See the resolution offered by Edmund Quincy in Faneuil Hall on Mr. Garrison's return, touching these coincidences of Clarkson and Wilberforce (Lib. 16: 202). It is a fact for a poet to celebrate, wrote S. J. May to his friend on his return, that you should have been in England to attend the burial of Clarkson, as you were of his co-worker Wilberforce. Lib. 16.194. But in this particular only the parallel fails, as Mr. Garrison was denied the privilege of following Clarkson's remains to the grave. On October 1, in beautiful and affecting Glasgow Argus, Oct. 15, 1846. terms, at a public meeting in Glasgow, he took notice of his venerated predecessor's Repose at length, firm Friend of human kind. A few days after their last meeting at Playford Hall, Mr. Garrison, with Douglass for his companion, betook Aug. 24-28, 1846. himself to Bristol and Exeter. At the former place he was the guest of John Bishop Estlin, an eminent 47 Park St. surgeon and ocul
p. These were forming, and they came up the hill with a rush. First came Slack, with Hughes' regiment and Thornton's battalion, and formed on the left of Cawthorn; then Clark, with Burbridge's regiment, and formed on the left of Slack; then Parsons, with Kelly's regiment and Guibor's battery, and formed on the left of Clark, and on the extreme left of the line McBride took position with his two regiments. Shortly after Rives, with some dismounted men, reinforced Slack; and Weightman, with Clarkson's and Hurst's regiments which had been encamped a mile or more away, came up at a double-quick and formed between Slack and Cawthorn. In the meantime Woodruff had taken position with his Arkansas battery on an elevated point of land overlooking the field from the east, and at the first sound of Totten's guns had opened a fire on Lyon which retarded his advance and greatly aided the Missourians in getting into position. The battle was now fairly set. The opposing forces were nearly equal
kansas, Col. Evander McNair; Turnbull's (formerly Terry's) battalion; Provence's battery. General Van Dorn had recommended for promotion to the rank of brigadier-general, Col. W. N. R. Beall, Col. D. H. Maury, Maj. W. L. Cabell, Lieutenant-Colonel Phifer, Colonel Hebert, and Col. Tom P. Dockery, and assigned them to command as such. Brig.-Gen. W. N. R. Beall, of Arkansas, was assigned to the command of cavalry forces which had been under General Gardner, of Alabama, relieved. Shoup's, Clarkson's, Roberts', Lieutenant Thrall's section of Hubbard's, and Trigg's batteries (the latter half under command of Governor Rector) had been transferred already, and assigned to Cleburne's and Hindman's divisions—not heretofore mentioned. By special orders, at Memphis, April 24th, the brigade noted above as Roane's, under command of Lieutenant-Colonel Danley, Third cavalry, was ordered to march to Corinth with five days cooked rations. On his departure, General Van Dorn, having tendered to

perfum'd with heartfelt sighs of grief, And moistened by the tear of gratitude,— Oh, how unlike the spot where war's grim chief Sinks on the field, in sanguine waves imbrued I Who mourns for him, whose footsteps can be viewed With reverential awe imprinted near The monument rear'd o'er the man of blood? Or who waste on it sorrow's balmy tear? None! shame and misery rest alone upon his bier. Offspring of heaven! Benevolence, thy pow'r Bade Wilberforce its mighty champion be, And taught a Clarkson's ardent mind to soar O'er every obstacle, when serving thee:— Theirs was the task to set the sufferer free, To break the bonds which bound th' unwilling slave, To shed abroad the light of liberty, And leave to all the rights their Maker gave, To bid the world rejoice o'er hated slavery's grave. Diffuse thy charms, Benevolence! let thy light Pierce the dark clouds which ages past have thrown Before the beams of truth—and nature's right, Inborn, let every hardened tyrant own; On our fair s<

The scene at Shackamaxon forms the subject of one of the pictures of West; but the artist, faithful neither to the Indians nor to Penn, should have no influence on history. Clarkson countenances the mistakes of the painter. With perhaps an unnecessary excess of critical skepticism, I have not rested one single fact relating to Penn on Clarkson's authority, but have verified all by documents and original sources. Shall the event be commemorated by the pencil? Imagine the chiefs of the savage communities, of noble shape and grave demeanor, assembled in council without arms; the old men sit in a half-moon upon the ground; the middle-aged are in a like figure at a little distance behind them; the young foresters form a third semicircle in the rear. Before them stands William Penn, graceful in the summer of life, in dress scarce dis

aunton, evidently anticipating an early movement of the Army of the Potomac. It is believed that no large force of the enemy have crossed to the eastward of the Blue Ridge. Alleged defeat of Guerilla Bands. A dispatch from Gen. Curtis, dated at St. Louis, says 1,500 Confederates were defeated at Putnam's Henry, on the 27th, --Killing several and taking over prisoners." The following is a dispatch from General Davis, (who killed Nelson,) at Columbus, Oh. The expedition to Clarkson, Mo., 34 miles from New Madrid, under command of Capt, Roger Cook, of the 2d llinois Artillery, has been entirely successful in dispersing the guerillas, killing 10, wounding 2, and capturing Colonel Clark, in command, a Captain and 3 Lieutenants, 3 Surge one, 37 men, 70 round of arms, 42 horses, 13 mules and 2 Legroom, and a large quantity of ammunition — burning their barracks and magazines, and entirely breaking up the whole concern.

Stealing a watch. --Night before last Joshua Owens, of Baltimore, and Capt. Wm. T. Clarkson, being together, and the latter being taken sick, Owens carried him to a boarding-house on Brook avenue, kept by Mrs. Green, to lie down and take a nap. On getting into the house Owens proposed to take care of Clarkson's watch — a very valuable gold time piece — but the latter declined, and put it into the hands of Mrs. Green, to be kept for him. Clarkson then laid down and fell asleep, and thereupon Owens went to Mrs. Green, and representing that Clarkson had sent for his watch received it from her and made off. When Clarkson awaked Owens and the watch had disappeared. He at once obtained a warrant for the arrest of Owens, and put it into the hands of watchman John E. Brooks. Yesterday morning about eight o'clock, Brooks and Clarkson being on the look out for Owens, saw him enter the "Here's Your Mule" house, on 8th street, near the Spotswood Hotel. Brooks followed Owens and arrested h
