CONCORD, N. H. Nov. 7th, 1852.
M aiiiis: After n journey of two daya
and nights, with the usual delays nnd vexations
of all kinds, I find myself nt my own desk again,
from which I have so often held friendly inter
course with you and the reader of the prrrlcsa
Duglc. The recollection of the last threo
months, nre to luc the most of them, of the pleas
antest character. A few ol thoso who one yenr
bef ire, were full of lifo and promise, had dis
appeared, lint even for these, wo do not
mourn ns thoo without liopo. When such die,
as were ltnchcl Myers, and Josephine drilling,
It Is for ourselves only that we need mourn-"
end even such mourning, is nut of place, as it
is understood in tho wo-.ld. If we mourn for
such as our young friends were, it is because
wo aro dead, and r.ct they. They belonged to
thoso over whom death had no power.
Tho nation is now j.ihilat.t at the surcess ef
tho lato election. Only a small number aro
doomed to disappointment, so near unanimous
hns been the vote. Tho successful enndidato
seems least elated at his sudden distinction.
Ho discountenances and openly disapprove of
immoderate demonstration of joy on the part
of hi friends. Ho alone socms mindful of the
disappointment of his opponents ; an 1 bo tells
his exulting friends, thut "(lie Injur of triumph
should bt the hottr if m.ttjnanimify." Tho no
blest sentiment perhaps, of all his life.
Tho Frco Democracy have also had some sig-
nal triumphs of late. Probably Iho election of
Mr. Giddinga lo tho next Congress, has given
tho supporters of his parly ns much causo of
congratulation sud rejoicing, ns any event since
the formation of tho party. Six weeks before,
I lectured in Jcllerson nnd some other place in
his District, and hi prospects seemed d irk in
deed. Tho temptation to throw my influence
wholly in his favor, in the true spiiit nnd posi
tion of the political parlizin, was very gn at.
llul the fact that almost every hu-c nnd hull
controlled by Free Soil men, w as bolted nnd
barred against mc, leads me to hope that I did
not swerve from my Integrity. Wc can do bet
ter things than to send good or bn 1 men to
Congress, to a wear fealty to tyrant-, and fidel
ity to a union with slaveholders."
A peculiarity of mine is, ( wns e.nce told
mo by a Physiognomist and Neurologist,) to
bo sad, often, at w hat n o it others would njoicc,
I confess that in our government, no triumph
of any party, or party candidate, brings nny joy
to mo. I have too olien expressed my admira
tion of Mr. Giddinga, to warrant any further
declaration of it here. Ho is far too good a
man to do the wotk assigned him. No wonder
all Congress laughed, nnd all tho nation too,
when ho administered the oulbs lo a sluve
holding speukcr, at the opening of tho last ses
sion. And almost everybody too, who looked only
at immediate results, was glal of tho election
of Cha:lcs Sumner. Formic, I did not rejoice,
It scorned to me his elevation was bis fall. My
mind is not yet chungi)d. Now he is the boas
ted champion of tho doctrine, " Freedom Na
tional, Slavery Sectional." My curse and tho
tunc of every bom st heart, on such a senti
ment, even were it true, ns it is not in this
country. Ho admits nnd declare that slavery
is in the constitution ; nnd only demands that
it bo confined within it prescribed limits. Ho
glorifies Washington, and make him, so ho
says, his model. Ho vishc tho government
restored, as it was in his hands, nnd adminis
tered ns he administered it. And yet, Wash
ington wns a sluvo holder nnd slnvo hunter.
Ho signed the Fugitive Slavo Law of 17U.1, and
under it, hunted a poor woman clear to Now
Hampshire. And he would havo laid hands
upon her there, only that he fmrnlthr people! "

Put Daniel Webster fell like tho rent nnd

I former glory. L.ko tho old "girdling" in

I and consign U to inglorious nnd prematura de-
esy and death. Men admire, his speech in
Congress I too, felt its power Still it was
poison as the sacraments cf Cirec. Slavery i
a desperately wicked "tctti .mat," us it could
bo " national." The more infamous nud infer
nal it is sectional, the moro desperately wicked
is that union w ith slaveholders which alone se
cured its existence, and so makes it Indirectly
notional. And that indirect connexion wilh it,
is enough to cover the Union nud all who vol
untarily support it, with rvcilasling infamy.
After all, Mr, Sumner himself proves in hi
peeeh, that slavery is constitutional ond na
i tional. He specifics the clauses. True, ho do
plore thcin, but ho sw ears to support them,
und hitherto has kept the oath. And the iiidu

And now Iho slavo and his uncompromising
friends Ii nvo gono into mourning, over tho

that spirit, ho would have answered, "pet the

the Slate), not aboliahod, "at a band of freemen,
a tuna of brothen, for the improremenl of man'
Anrf, fir the ehra-ian of Ihe ran."
It seems to me, dear Murius, it becomes OS
to look well to our step. The course ef Oemt

Notes from the Lecturing Field.
NEW LYME, Nov. 14, 1840.
I'iau M Alius. I never remember a time
when I had more lo write than du.ing tho psM
live or six weeks, mid never remember a time
when I I. ad !es disposition to j (in a single sen

been constantly transpiring, nud ns constantly
have I determined ' lo keep sou apprised of

For a month before tho election, this dislrl' t

the cause of freedom. Nevtr v as 1 1 ere a eon.
tost in which the elements ef fierdmn and sla
very entered so laigely ; and t.rver was flirte a '
timo when our Political brethren preached the
gospel of universal Liberty with greater earn
estness than during thnt struggle.
It was a time of universal rejoicing among
the friends of freedom, when tho old veteran
triumphed so gloriously, 1 can assure you it
was by dint of bard labor that such a result
waa secured. I held meetings in most of the
towns In this county, of a character truly en
couraging. Tiio number in attendance Was
unusually lurgc, and many nn ndvocato of fhe
Ilallimoro platforms was seen to tremble. 1 in
no rnso failed to present our distinctivo visws
ns abolitionists, and nt tho same timed allowed
that those who could uso tho Franchise ought
to vote for freedom. I think it w rong to tote,
I think it wrong to lie, I think it wrong to de
ecive, and so with many other things. .Put if
men will vote, lie, or deceive, I say do it for
freedom and ngainst slavery.
