xWR QUILzAZ5. SUNDAY. 3AY 31. ,se. wU=Zu ?WiU or aNKMRO'CoikN3L1. .n the evening ofhthe Jslt .May, Wen alu Phillips. delivered a .eture on Daniel O'Connell, at the Academy of Music, New York., The.ttenidalee was large, eight or tea Cathol clergymen occooupying seats on thepatform.. Judgng from internal evi des, the audience were very enthusiastie. Some journals pronounce it, the mmst ap preeiative ever heard on. t~,~ subjee t thougsbit has be~aeatd by master. inds. It w}~:jIesely be ,ecessary for- us to say, that.Wp ,pet totally hrom the lebturer in hia peger view on the South and slavery. We ae indueda togive the aoneluding por tion, beeause we recognise in it features o~lng Ul justlr e to, O'onnell's towering gesndlhis trillinag eloquence, his hercn lsa 3lbws eatn replendent achievements. We wpnkld;emark upon that portioiof .it whiq;lws reference to the rejection of one tho~gapd pounds from New Orleans, tthat from Lis-ignorance of: the real condition of the negret Daniel O'Connell was quite in competent.to form an imipartihl estimate of .the rualitis of the case. He heard a great deal s t isiagifary grievances, never ver ified, which moved his great heait, because of the-cruel sufferings of his own people. Hence, some allowance must Ie made for theMilsepsition which he occupied,in muag nifytag evils te they were transmitted througha distorted medium. At the period referred to, three eloquent Scotch ministers visited this city on behalf of the Free Church of. 8Sotland, then disrupted, inder theleadership of Dr. Chalmers, fronm the parent kirk. Their visit created consider able sensation, and the South cont:Uriated liberally to the fui'nd-Dr. Scott's church, opposite Lafayette Square, alone givi we recollect-five thousand dollars. Atthe General Assembly in Edinburg, anti-slavery sentiments ran high; boisterous and un seemly scenes ensued, highly personal and damaging to the clerical participants, amidst which slavery and slaveholders were de nounced in unmeasured terms, and clergy men fro tbe South-Dr. Scott included refused admittance to the Scotchpulpit. A Dr. Curminhem, to test the sincerity of his brethren, meoedthat the contributions from. the South be rejected, as unhallowed. This fell like a bomb on the "venerable Court Church;" but after considerable discussion, much more decorous in tone, on motion of Dr. MCandlish--the great gun after Chal mere-it was resolved to retain the "blood moiey." The eanny Scoot showed himself there. However mistaken, the course of O'Connell on a similar occasion, shows mag nanimously in contrast'-" as different as Hyperion to a Satyr." His triumphs he owed mainly to eloquence that was never--equaled. Perhaps you doubt my testimony. If you do I will vouch for it with the endorsement of a man who never loved Ireland, and that is John Randolph, of Roanoke. [Laughter.] When he. went in and beard O'Connell, the old Virginian cried out, " Therd are the lips, and this is the tongue of human eloquence." I think he was right. I have listened to the im pressive solmnitof Webster, been de lighted with the grace of Everett, dazzled with the rhetoric of Choate; I know the iron 'strenth of the logic of-Calhoun; I hae-bee-beneath -temagnetism-of Henry Clay; it has been my fortune to sit at the. feet of the great speakers of the English tongue on the other side of the water; but I think O'Connell's oratory blended into one harmonious whole the solemnity of Webster, the grace of Everett, the logicf Calhoun, and the magnetism of Clay. [Ap plause.] Nature seemed to hae intended him for a Demosthenes of our epoch. She gifted him with everything that goes to make up the great tribune of the people. In the first place, he had a magnificent pre sence, impressive in hearing-imposing like. that of Jupiter-Webst.-r himself hardly outdid-him in the majatly of his appearance. And this is much niore than yon faincy at first in the qualities of an or.ttov---his phy sique.. I rememnbcr lRussell Lowell telling us that when Mr. WVcbstcr catme hmoll from Washington at the timne vvlhtcin the Whig party thouglht. of dissolution, a year or two before its death, and he went down to IFa.n cuil Hall to protest., andl. ,drawiýg himiiself up to his loftiest inipressiveness, his brow clothed with thunder, lie stood before the listening audlience, ant said, " Well,-genu tlemen, I am a Whig, a Massachusetts Whig, a Faneuil Hall Whig, a Revolutionary Whig, a Countitutional Whiig. If you break the Whig party, sir, where amn I to go I" And, says Russell Lowell " We held our breatlh, thinkinig it a fearful thing where he would go." [Grenat laughter.] If hle had been five feet three, we should have said, "Who cares where he; goes t" [Renewed laughter.) So it was wlth-T'Connell. There was something majestic in his presence be fore lie hspok,, and hie addled to it what Web ster hadl not--what Claym hight have lent to Mr. Adamn-gracne. Lithe as a boy at seven ty, perfect in attitude, every gesture a pic ture, so natural, as if nio ellort, nio arlt, nothing but :nature spoke all over him. Then lie had a v,ie that 'cvered the wh lin gawnllt. lie oild .iudow t ht. mintion witht the majesty of lturke. As I beard him o.. say--' l send my voice aciross tihe Atlati"ii like the thmiid,.', until the slaveholders 1,f i <M jiuiinl G(od's thunderlolts. ar. hurled, iaud to r,.:nuiad thle l,oid i hiu ili the oruiulg tuf hi. d. miti.,,i ais hi.i3 .reakig.. ..a --'.] Thi.u with lh slightest pu sliiie Irislh brogune-which is the, L. pleasure of it.-he wouldi tell a stay thaat wouldput ive thonssand men nlo tfh , the moment after he wotld melt thewkqop of Exeter Hall into teams.

[Laughter adapplause.] P r So when he entered the House of Com- k mons ipIS8jO,.the London T.meshad always t, hatedl..him as Harriet Martineau and Mr. Brougham did-and you may read their ,d scandal' in all their page--the London STVies. covered- him with ridicule, turned his speeches inside out,. made his sentences n read wrong, treated. him as the Herald ur sed to treat us twenty years ago. [Langh-» e ter andapplause] Finally, he stod ui. Said t _ he, "Mr. Speaker I have toiledtw y ' to speak under this roof, and after that '( twenty years' work and standing here, is it m, English fair play, is it the justioe-of English gentlemeas that I should not be treated h Mikerthe rest t" Welli the next day the 1B London Times came out with a card of y thirteen reporters, saying that since Mr. O'Connell disliked their reports, they d would never noticee-him at all. Perhaps you are aware that the gallery of the House t of Commons is not open to the public, and - was not then. No one has a right to sit there if any member chooses to observe their presence. It is sufilpient to nay, "Mr. Speaker, I see strangers" and they A. are removed. The next day, when OCon- ' neil arose to speak, the thirteenreporters I of the 27m1.. arose, folded their arms, and Splaced-their penils-ostentatiously between G Stheir thmbs and fingers, as aninndtgttion d, that they would not write a word. O'Con nell got up and said, "Mr. Speaker, I ob serve thirteen strangers in the gallery," [ laighter,] and they were removed and b - that day no man in the Heouse had a line of d his speech reported. The next morning for the t ilrmt time, the 'Lmdon Tias er "quarter," and said, " If Mr. O'Connell i will give up the quarel we will." [Laugh ter and applause.] Well, he never' met that treatment again for ten years; but when he held his monster m land, fifty thousand strong, the Times again e followed him with abuse and ridicule, until t a the last meeting whichhe held, at which ,r the Times reporter was present, and was r afraid to attend the meeting alone, he went f to O'Connell at his hotel, who kindly gave y a him his breakfast and took him to the y" n meeting in his carriage. He proctued him 0o s a table and every convenience, and then k said: "Are you ready, Mr. Reporter ?" and 1 the reporter answered that he was. Mr. O'ConneRlthen turned around and addressed d the meeting in Irish! [Laughter and ap e lause.] arlyle says: "He is a natural king, he melts all wills into his, and doubt lees that is the greatest evidence of power." e You can only understand it h.bcomparmson. h Let me carry you back to the mob-year of t 1835, in this country, when the Abolitionists o were hunted,, when your streets roared if with riot, whei from.Boston to Baltimore, 21 f from St. Louis-to Philadelphia, theinmob fa - took possession of the city; when private A1 I houses were invaded and public- halls were al e burned, and press after press were thrown ni o int6 the river, and Lovejoy baptized free- al n dom with his blood-you remember it. al Respectable journals warned the mob that e they were playing into the hands of the ,. y Abolitionists.

Twenty-seven gentlemen, :who were called the West India Interest, the Bristol- paity, the Slave party, went to him. said-they : "O'Connell, twenty-seven votes, yopu have not one.-twenty-seven votes, if you never will, o to Free Maans',.Ha} with--Buckto-a Br teiailf yon ae never" fow-d at :an Anti-Slavery meeting there-al this solid column on every rish agest pay atoppthere, and count as your gpl¢ - "'It was a terrible temptation, y-B i n.

I .Jeep silent on the iegro question." [Applause.] Never said SBckton, from that day, never did Lush ngteaonsand myself walk out of the lobby hat O'Connell did not follow us. OAgain, hey sent him £1000 once from New Orleans, ,he slaveholders to the Catholice MA5 ociation; the bill was laid on the table of :onciliation Hall, and the Liberator took it p ; said he, " God knows how poor we are, iow much we need it; but, thank God I Ire and is not-poor enough yet to take the wages of unpaid toil!" To an Alabama lanter woiho asked admission to the House if Commons, he refuted it. Said he, "9I lo not think a slaveholder ought to be re neived on terms of qaidIby a civilised uropean." [Applause. A Boston 'man acing to his house i MXerlon Square, he tuolame his-door, receiving him with both' ands, as was his wont. .With.genial hos itality says he, "8ir, you are weloome. I -n glad to see anybody from Massachusetts.' Sis a free State. Walk in. You are a wel tme guest." And he drew hims into his arlor. The gentleman said: "Ah! you paeak of slavery, Mr. O'Connell. I would Ike to disauss with you the justice of that nstitupn." - " Disuess anything," -said )'Connell, "under thiq~ roof-anything; unt before you discuss the justice of one nan's owning another just let me'loek up y spoons. Well, I left him in 1841or 42 in London. He was standing between he Whig and Tory parties. He had fifty rotes ta oowet h-s bidding, called )'Connell's taiL The Tories and the Whiga, eore contending for asecendency. Earl Grey was reported to have said to him: I' What Lo you want?
