.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

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. Webster and Clay and the ti
stafflof \Vhig statesman told the people that I,

At that moment -O'Connell entered the
House. Twenty-seven gentlemen, :who
were called the West India Interest, the

and is not-poor enough yet to take the

lanter woiho asked admission to the House

tuolame his-door, receiving him with both'

Ike to disauss with you the justice of that

)'Connell, "under thiq~ roof-anything;
unt before you discuss the justice of one
nan's owning another just let me'loek up

nee said, forgetting his calling-[laughter]
-that we did not need empty words, we
needed deeds-forgetting that there are
imes when words are the strongest deeds.
Applause.] Here was a man of words; and
left him standing in London-this repre
entative often men-locked up in an upper
hamber, and he held the Tory party in one
land and the Whig party in the other, and
ras deciding to which he should give in.
