Jobn Quiney Adams, the sixth T
President of the United States, and
the grandson of John Adams, the
second President. He was the only,
son of the family that survived the U
father, John Quincy Adams. Charles
FrancisAdams was bern in Boston, to
aAgPhusetts, August 18, 1807.
At the age of two years he was in
taken by his father to St. Peters- Ifa
burg, where he remained for the U
next six years, his father being hi
United States Minister at the Rus
sian Court. During his residence 
at the Russian capital be learned to it
speak Russian,German, and French, "
as well as English. In I'ehrnary, I
1815, he made the perilous journey
from St. Petersburg to Paris with i
his mother, in a private carriage, to a
meet his father. The intrepidity of a
Mrs. Adams in undertaking such a e
journey in midwinter, and when all n
Europe was in a state of commotion,
gave evidence that the courage and
darjt which her son inherited was n
Snot all due to the father's side.
.Tohn Qpincy.Adams wAs next ap
pointed Minister to England, and I
during his residence there he placed '
Charles at a boarding school. t
1 In 1817 his father was recalled to i
America to become Secretary of t
State in President Monroe's ad
ministration, and young Adams on
_ his return was placed in the Boston
Latin' School, from whence he
entered Harvard College in 1821,
and graduated there with honor in
1825. His father was at this time
e President, and the son spent the
t next two years in Washington, but
in 1827 returned to Massachusetts
and commenced the study of the
e law in the office of Daniel Webster.
He was admitted to the bar ip 1828,
but did not engage actively in prac
I tiese.
In 1829 Mr. Adams nirrried a
daughter of Peter C. Brooks, an
epulent merchant of Boston, another
of whose daughters was the wife of?
Hon. Edward Everett. He .was
nominated in 1830 as Representa
tive in the Massachsettes Legisla
ture; but he had no political aspira
tions, and declined to be a candi
date. At his father's request, how-1
ever, he consented to be a candi
date the next year, and was elected
for three years successively, and
was then chosen State Senator for
two. years. His sentiments were at:
this time more decidedly anti
e slavery than those of most of the
leading Whigs of Boston and its'
vicinity, and as he avowed them
I freely, and did not seek or desire!
1 political prefement, he was snTffer-1
red to remain in private life, and
a bsy himself, as he desired to do,
a with literary pursuits.
e. In or about 1845 he commenced
d the publication of a daily paper in
SBorston, bearing the title of the
r, Boston Whiq. The aim of this
*- p werwas to represent the views
d f the anti-slavery portion of the
SWhig party.
In 1848 the nomination of Gen.
ir Taylor by the Whig~s, on a pro
, slavery platform, and of General
1 Cams, by the DImocrats, on an
Iequally Southern deelaratiom ofi
c1 opinions, led to a withdrawal of the
.anti-slavery men of both parties
' and the formation of the Free Soil
Sparty. The party at their conven
Stics in Bffalo, nominated ex-Presi
b dent Van Boroen for the Pridemiey,
e. and Charles Franis Adams for the'
S.'iCe Prmidency. There wa~s, of
a course, no hops of sa election of

J NEW OBLEANS OUTRAGES. ,
Details of the late political difB
1 culty at New Orleans show that a
more disgraceful state of affairs at
tended the disorganization of the
Republican Convention in that city
f than could have been imagined.
- We learned by telegraph that the
Convention was held in the Custom
n House and that the United States
, troops were employod to stand
guard around the hall in which the_
delegates w,.re to conven.'. But
i it stems that nearly all the Federal '
Sofficials were concerned in the sha me- 1
t ful attempt to make a close corpora- I
, tion of the Convention-or. at least,
e of that part of which they had con
r trol. The Collector and Marshal
ihaving agreed to nse the Ihilding,
Sof the United States, the latter func
I tionary, in advance of the appoint
a ment and action of a Committee on
n Credentials, constituted himnself an
,r. ºauthority to decide who were entitled
,f to seats in the convention, and gave
a notice that he would isue tickets of
a_ admission to mnersers only. Mar
shal Packard was to decide who
. should pass the cordon of troops
i which had been drawn around the
- place of meeting. The Poatmas
i- ter was brought into active service
his share of the labor being to ped
,d dle out Marshal Packard's tickets.
rI But the Postmaster's feelings would
t i not permit him to distribute the
coveted cards through the money
e order department of his office as first
is contemplated, so he gave them out
l of his window-a surrender of con
re venience to decency which we can
r not sufleiently admire when we
d contemplate the spectacle of the
SUnited States Custom-House gar
riosoned by troops, defendtedl with
, artillery and the custodians of the
in l"p~perty closeted in private caucus,
! while delegates to the Convention
es were vainly begging entrance into
Sthe interior of the building.
Junt now, we have nothing to say
about tlh.' relative merits of the
a. praties to the unhappy quarrel
which divides the Republieap
al party, but we must feel indig
m nant at such an indecent and
d wanton perversion of authority
* s that whieh resulted in the or
e gmaiation of two Conventions at
il New Orleans. To calla Conven
. tion in the United States courtroom
i- in the Custom-House building, wail
,a gross political outrage, nnprece
dented in the history of the country. (
of To hide behind a battaliozi of Dep I
of 'ty United States Marshals and
d another of United States infantry,
e was cowardly and scandalous. And
me to attempt to exclude respectable
", 1and well-behaved eitizens from the
- room in which the Convention wase
to be held was a violation of the
ir- pl*inLet prineiples of popular rights.
,I No wonder that the men who had
s.cospired to bring forth these high
m handed asyues were willing to
mn saalder the responsibility for their
-et aupon soone "higher authority;"
