the tremendous agitation Mr. Sumner stood to principle firm as a rock. He saw the storm impending; he deprecated bloodshed; he felt that the best way to avert it was for the North to hold itself immovable. He exhorted every one to stand for the right with unwavering front. He wrote (Jan. 1) to William Claflin, President of the Massachusetts Senate, Let the timid cry; but let Massachusetts stand stiff: God bless her! To Count Gurowski, author of an admirable treatise on slavery, he wrote (Jan. 8), These compromisers do not comprehend the glory of principle. Perissent les colonies plutot qu'un principle! In a letter to Gov. John A. Andrew, dated Jan. 17, he said, Pray keep Massachusetts sound and firm, firm, firm! against every word or step of concession. In another letter to the same, dated Jan. 28, he said, Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes: don't let these words be ever out of your mind when you think of any proposition from the slave-masters. O God! Let Massachusetts keep true.
