  • In this letter, Mrs. Emma Michell discusses articles in the British Banner, Dr. (John) Campbell's views on the abolitionists' attitude toward the church, an apparent dispute between a Mr. Chickering and Lewis Tappan, and an article on American slavery which is concerned with the "Infidel School of American Abolitionists." The Dublin Anti-Slavery Society has passed a "vote of disapprobation" on the conduct of Kossuth. Emma Michell quotes Mary (Anne Estlin) as saying "she should think that Kossuth would never sleep in peace in his bed again." She refers to an admirable speech by Wendell Phillips, an excellent article by Edmund Quincy in the National Anti-Slavery Standard, and the success of the bazaar. (Richard Davis) Webb will review R. L. Carpenter's pamphlet. (James) Grant and (John) Scoble had a long talk together. Scoble "went into raptures" over Mrs. Maria W. Chapman's talents, beauty, and voice and called her the "syren [sic] of America."
