Turning around.

--Senator Wilson wrote a letter to the John Brown celebration, which from force of circumstances could not come off in Boston, in which he said

‘ While I accord to John Brown sincerity of motive, unselfish devotion, and unsurpassed courage, I deplore and condemn his armed invasion of Virginia. Were it in my power to do so, I would not consent to attend your meeting, for I cannot by an act of mine thus associate in any degree the issues concerning slavery with John Brown's lawless descent upon Harper's Ferry.
