on Ihe general question of Ailieicau Slavery
nnd ita abolition : II. If l',.L .!'. Ur porter.
" Having said ibis much about the book, I
feel that I have nearly anticipated ull that J
Imvn to offer in this confined space upon its
subject. That subject is slavery, mid il sure
ly constitutes ihe most dillictdt nnd solemn
problem that now engages tho nttentinn of
mankind. I have uo w ish to dissemble or
gloss over my entire and anient sympathy
with its victims mid its opponents. The
anti-slavery party in the I'liitrd States may
possibly have made mistakes and miscalcu
lations which I have no means nf correctly
appreciating ; but, w ilh all duo nllowanco
fur error, iiiliniiaty.mid thu intolerance which
is ii.: lo entwine itscll even w ith tho nohlesl
of effort, Mid tin. holiest of causes, my Calm
belief is, that Ihey nro fighting A hlHt'o un
paralleled either in nneicnl or modern hero
ism. Of modern heroism I certainly would
not not speak lightly, iu addressing either the
cuiiiitrymcn ol Washington or Wellington.
Let them be rightfully hailed by thu respec
tive populations ns the fathers of iheir coun
try, ltut glorious as may bavo been tiieir
exploits in the field, und scarcely less glorious
Iheir uudevialing deference to the laws mid
cniisliliiiiiinsnf the countries they had odoru

" Having thu expressed, in no flattering
accents, my sympathy with tho enemies nf
shivery on it own soil, 1 do not wish tu quit
the topic without a wold ol counsel lo my
own countrymen, lo observe entire justice
and discretion Inward its IrieiuU und abet
tors. We must never furget that weoiigi

mid, iu the I'uited Stales, tho enactment of

To gag the lien and lull I Xjirrssion i f npmion
in this country upon any exhibition ol i run
ny and umighteous, most assuredly I luver
will consent, in iho face of European despots
or American slaveholders f but we may be
qtiilu certain that wo could not confer more
material assistance upon the friend nud pa

in their side nny feeling of insulted nation

Iheir country was exposed lo undeserved
censure, or inapplicnblu contumely. The
nnli-sl ivory pnrty in tho Fuilcil Slates uro
entilled lo the most fervid expression of our
sympathy nud admiration ; the personal in
tervention ol foreigners in Iheir riitcrpiiso
would, I am pcsiiadod, only clog their rlfurt
nnd nullify nny which, as a nation, we ninv
ever have a lair and legitimate iipporitiuhy
'.o use. I!t iho only weapon of war line in
tins 1 1 1 1 1 quarrel bo tho concurring conic i
enco ot mankind; let Iho only shout of tii-
umpti over its honl adjustment bu the Hal
Icluj'ilisnf the Heavens.
"Nevertheless', while I am anxious lo pre
scribe mnn lo the warmth of symynthy, mid
thu nrdour of humanity, iheir duo IiuuiiiIh
and restraints, I think it most desirable, not
only thai Iho conscience of tho American
people should he roused lo it inmost depths,
lull tlmt they should rend, in the iucrensed
stir und sensation which the question excites
through all thu family of man, tho certain
indications that it can never sleep, hut Ihnt it
must woik nnd liiiuo its way till, in one
iiiodo or another, iis ultimate consiimalion
ha accomplished. It is for them lo examine
llm ground, lo lay tho foundation, lo smooth
the itppiuaehes; happy for Ihem it will hu il
they may rear (ho imblo edifice of a race's
freedom in tranquility end cnipporure, mid
not amid scenes of confusion, violence nnd
bloodshed, such ns the pazo of Liberty her
self would shrink lo encounter. Let theui
only drink in deep enough the thorough con
vidian thai lliings cannot go on forever ns
ihey ore going on now. Within even the
short interval which bus elapsed since my
own visit to tho I'nion ten years ago, and
from even Ibis fur distance, it nppears to me
that 1 can trace the (outstep nt no slnw pro.
grcs in Ibis grout cause. Such seems to
me the formal piopo.al of a candidate by tho
mill-slavery parly lor the next election to tho
supremo oflico of President of tho I'uited
Mutes; swell seems lo nui Iho appointment
conferred last your, by the eminently com
mercial, eminently American Statu of Mas
sachusetts, lo thu olhco of its senator in
Congress, upon my own uiiicb-vidiied b iend,
Mr, Churle Sumner. Iu our past hour of
friendly intercourse, in our frequent walks
by the sparkling estuary of Itosiou, or upon
tho sunny biow nf Hunker's Hill, bow little
did I, how little did he, I leel well assured,
dream of such an opening upon hi quiet
nnd unostentatious career! Ami now, while
I bavo been writing these lines, I Imve re
