it is said, thai $50 000 00 would have been

when one of them proffered us a piece of

On the 11th of this month one of the great
est men ever in our national congress died,
and a nation mourns her loss.
Charles Sumner was burn February (Jth,
1811,and was a college-bred statesman.
He attended Latin School in Boston, and
then went to Phillips Acudeni , and when
he was nineteen years of age, graduated
at Harvard. He studied law at Cambridge
and was admitted to the bar when he was
twenty-three. Ho was a very intimate
friend of the late Judge Story, the great
law-writer, Sunnier also wrote works on
law and his work on international law is
said to his best production.
When Daniel Webster look a seat in
President Filmore's cabinet!!, his place in
the senate was won by Sumner after an
exciting contest. The first great speech
he made was in 18."2 on the Fugitive Slave
bill entitled "Freedom National Slavery
Sectional." The title of this speech lw-
laid down as a maxim, and ever followed
it through the rest of his political career.
His next famous speech in congress was
"The Crime against Kansas" and occu
pied two days May 10th and 20th, 1N52,
in delivery. This was tlio greatest bomb
shell overcast into the ranks of slave-hol-dors,
and on the 22d of May, while writ
ting at his desk, he was brutally assaulted
by Preston S. Baooks w ho knocked him
insensible to the floor. In 1837 lie again
took his seat in senate, but again was com
polled to go to Europe on account of his
ill-health, however he soon again resumed
his place in Congress and on June 4th,
1800, delivered his greatest speech "The
Barbarism of Slavery."
In 1801 he supported Lincoln and Ham
lin in the presidential contest and re
mained a leader of the Republican party
until the last presidential campain, when
he assumed tho leadership of the Liberal
party, supporting Horace Greeley.
Mentally and physically Sumner and
Webster were very much alike. And he
was the only man who ever could have
tilled the place of Webster.
statements of his in reference to the roou
tation of Lincoln, and particularly the
odium ho tries to cast upon the character
of the ladies engaged in the tempoanco
movement in thts city.
There surely is chance enough in Ne
raska for two such mighty cities as Lin
coln and Nebraska City, to exist and pros
per without resorting to scurrilous attacks
to tear one another down. We ourselves
are one of the three students from the latter
city whence "Paul Howard" hails.
It would be much more manly in him to
write something to which ho is not
ashamed to sign his genuine name, and
shield us the part of the just reproach his

etry in any other way.

Though "Grimes" lias gone where the
woodbine twincth we will toll him when
he returns, that he can now stay the tears
that gush from his manly eyes. We are
sorry for "Grime?," but do hope that when
ho returns the "Living Pierian" will not
possess as much influence over him as
she has over the "modest youth." Wo
