1859 Editorial on John BrownNatickMA8888888942Cary Holmes2013-05-01 19:46:30The Natick Observer November 5, 1859 Page 2The Natick Observer Saturday, November 5, 1859 Old John Brown Our readers are probably aware that the hero at Harper’s Ferry, called “Old John Brown” has been convicted of treason and murder in the first degree, by a jury of the Sate of Virginia, and perhaps before this article has been put to press, his execution will have taken place. We call him a hero because he has performed an act which required all the essential elements of moral and physical courage to perform; because he acted up to his moral convictions of right and duty, even to the peril of his life; because he carried his principles to their logical conclusion without fear; and because in the final history of the Abolition movement in this country, Harper’s Ferry is to take a prominent place, and will stand perhaps in relation to the overthrow of Slavey, as the Boston Massacre now stand in relation to the overthrow of the tyranny of King George. The movement may have been unwise, and humanely speaking, foolish—that is, in the sense that it was made without any prospect of a successful issue—but it was nevertheless made in behalf of the most just and righteous cause that ever men sacrificed their lives for, and in the Providence of God, may not be so entirely barren of results as the short-sightedness of politicians and time servers now suppose. True, it was the effort of only seventeen men, with a leader reputed to be crazy; and though they are all dead or as good as dead, and were backed by no great political party or ecclesiastical organization, yet none of our readers can remember an event which has so profoundly stirred the depths of society throughout the entire American Union, as this affair at Harper’s Ferry The reason of this is to be found in the fact that the blow, insignificant as it was, was aimed at, and hit the tenderest spot in the social and political institutions in the nation; and feeble though it was, yet it has laid bare a degree of festering rottenness and corruption such as the world never before saw or imagined. Slavery is a perpetual war. A constant conflict with the right, and unceasing fight, with eternal truths. While it exists, it must remain a fomenter of riots, rebellions, insurrections, murders, assassinations and battles. The stronger it grows, and the longer it continues, the more frequent and ferocious will these become. It exhausts the soil, saps the moral sense of the people, degrades labor, and is driving the working classes of the country to the wall, but shutting them out of the fairest portion of the lands of the Southwest, which should remain open for the surplus population of the older states, for the use of the men who must have cheap land or starve. The killing of old John Brown and his men does nothing to end this war. Their sacrifice turns the thoughts of men to the appalling wickedness of the system with ten-fold intensity, and a thousand John Browns exist today where one existed before the affray at the Ferry If this nation has not the virtue, courage, sense and decision to put an end to slavery by some concentrated effort of a peaceful nature, then the end must come by violence and blood.
Reverend Henry C. Wright Proposes The Natick ResolutionNatickMA8888888943Cary Holmes2013-05-01 19:46:24The Natick Observer November 24, 1859 p. 2The Natick Observer November 24,1859 Henry C. Wright. This gentleman lectured to an overflowing house in this village on Sunday last. His remarks were upon a resolution which he submitted to the meeting, the substance of which was as follows: “Whereas, resistance to tyrants is obedience to God, therefore, Resolved, That it is the right and duty of slaves to resist their masters, and it is the duty of the North to incite them to resistance, and aid them in it” Upon rising, Mr. Wright stated that he should offer the above resolution, after which he hoped that it would be discussed by any one present who chose to do so, and at the close of the meeting it should be voted upon. He also recommended that the audience choose a Chairman, in accordance with which, Mr. D. M Gerry was selected to preside. Mr. W(right) then took the affirmative, and spoke about an hour and forty minutes urging the people of the free States to religiously, politically, socially, domestically and commercially treat the slaveholder as they would a robber, a murderer, or a pirate. He spoke of the recent affair at Harper’s Ferry, eulogizing briefly the leader of that movement and expressing a hope that the meeting would adjourn to the day of the execution of John Brown, when the same hall might be filled to take such views of the fate of that man as they might deem necessary. At the close of his speech, the resolution was again read, and adopted by the audience, the vote however being very small. Editors Note The Natick Observer states that the Rev. Wright lectured to an overflowing crowd. The meeting was held in the schoolhouse located in the center of Natick . On page 268 in The Life of Henry Wilson by Thomas Russell and Elias Nason (Boston, 1872) it is stated: “…the question was put, and perhaps fifteen or twenty persons in the meeting of seven or eight hundred, voted for the resolution.” According to Russell and Nason, Henry Wilson was present but refrained from speaking. It should also be noted that the population of Natick in 1859 was about 5,000. Cary Holmes Reference Department Morse Institute Library Natick, Massachusetts

Tyler (Secretary of the Antislavery Society of Massachusetts Dr. Ira Russell Rev. Babcock Rev. Wm. H. Walker Wm. Adams jr. S. S. FosterThe Natick Observer December 10, 1859 John Brown Meeting in Natick! Agreeably to previous arrangements, a meeting was held in School House Hall on Friday evening of last week, to express sympathy for Old John Brown, who was that day executed in Virginia for following the Christian impulses of his heart in efforts to rescue from bondage the down-trodden and oppressed. At an early hour, the hall was filled to overflowing, and many went away unable to find admittance. Among the audience we observed many from out of town. The general aspect of the audience was such as to indicate to the most casual observer that the occasion which had convened it was one of no ordinary interest. The meeting was called to order by J. B. Mann, Esq. who presented a list of officers (which had been agreed upon by the committee of arrangements) consisting of E. C. Morse Esq. for President, a long list of Vice Presidents, and J. B. Mann, Esq. for Secretary. The President, upon taking the Chair, addressed the meeting in a speech characterized with deep feelings of sympathy and profound respect for the Christian firmness and moral heroism of John Brown; while at the same time he regarded his action as unfortunate and mistaken, as regarded himself and the cause he designed to promote. While such efforts as he had made might be the occasion of good to the Anti-Slavery cause, he thought that the legitimate results would be all wrong. He did not hesitate to say that there was much in the character of John Brown, deserving of our highest admiration; still in regard to his acts at Harper’s Ferry, he thought him mistaken in judgment. In short that while his heart wall all right, his head was all wrong. The President then introduced Rev. N. D. George, who spoke earnestly from previously prepared notes—taking the conservative side of the question, regarding both the head and heart of John Brown as wrong, and the results of his actions disastrous to the Anti-Slavery cause. Hon. J. W. Bacon followed Mr. George and defended Brown in an eloquent and forcible speech, regarding him as activated by the highest, best and purest of motives. That he followed the golden rule of doing to others he would that others should do to him---that he remembered those in bonds as bound with them. Today he had paid the penalty of his acts upon the gallows, and such would have been the fate of George Washington, Patrick Henry, John Hancock, and John Adams, had they fallen into the hands of the mother country. Old Brown had done the same thing,---had taken up arms to rescue slaves from Virginia bondage, that our government had done to rescue white slaves in Algiers. Mr. Bacon was interrupted by frequent and hearty applause. Rev. C. M. Tyler was the next speaker, and he expressed his sympathy for John Brown, his admiration for his Christian firmness and martyr like devotion to the cause of liberty; his hatred to slavery, and his belief in the abstract right of revolution in certain contingencies. Dr. Russell spoke of the martyrs of liberty, instancing the case of the Rev. E. P. Lovejoy, who more than twenty years ago was driven from St. Charles, Missouri for publishing an Anti-Slavery religious newspaper, and fell, bravely fighting, rifle in hand in the defense of his property and principles in Alton, in Illinois. Missouri had furnished the first martyr in the Anti-Slavery cause, and was the first to set about becoming a free State. He hoped that the martyrdom of old John Brown would be followed by like results in Virginia. At the close of his remarks, he offered the following preamble and resolutions: “Whereas, we, the citizens of Natick have assembled, recognizing the principles of Thomas Jefferson as enunciated by him in the Declaration of Independence, “that all men are created free and equal, and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights---among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”, and whereas, believing in Virginia’s celebrated motto that resistance to tyrants is obedience to God, ---therefore, Resolved, That in conflict between the master and the slave, there is the attribute of God that can take sides with the oppressor. Resolved, That the devotion of the principles of liberty and the heroic self- scarifies of Old John Brown in behalf of the down-trodden and oppressed, is deserving of our highest admiration. Resolved, That while we recognize the rights of revolution, when all other means have failed to correct long admitted governmental evils and insupportable wrongs, we fully believe that political, moral and religious agencies are the best, and will be the most effectual means in removing the blighting curse of Slavery from our land.” The above resolutions were passed previous to the close of the meeting, the following being opposed by G. L. Sawin, Esq. and for want of perspicuity was declared rejected by the Chairman. “ Resolved, That we regard all attempts to incite a servile insurrection with no less abhorrence than we do the Southern bluster about dissolving the Union, or the wicked and insane threat of Gov. Wise that he would incite and insurrection and take possession of the archives of the general government, n the event of the election of a Republican President, and form a Slaveholding confederacy.” Rev. Mr. Babcock of South Natick presented his views in a series of resolutions in which he took strong grounds and defended them in an able speech, which was frequently applauded. He defended the American Anti-Slavery Society, and expressed the opinion that that Society and Mr. Garrison had done more for the Anti-Slavery cause than all the churches and pulpits in the country. Rev. Wm. H. Walker took the stand and made on of the best and strongest Anti-Slavery speeches of the evening. He repudiated the Fugitive Slave Law and Dred Scott decision. He denied that ministers and church members were more pro-Slavery than other men, but contended that a vast majority of the ministers and church members of the free States were voting, active Anti-Slavery men and were far in the advance of the masses outside of the churches in their devotion to freedom. Wm. Adams, Jr. of Boston, electrified the audience with a recital of what he had witnessed of the horrors of Slavery. Mr. S. S. Foster of Worcester, mad a strong Anti-Slavery speech, eulogizing John Brown. He approved of what he had done, and believed that he had been directed by an overruling Providence. While his conscience would not allow him (Foster) to use carnal weapons, he being a non-resistant, he believed that Old Brown did right in using the sword of steel. He preferred ballots to bullets and while it was snot right for him to vote, he urged all those who consciences would allow them to vote, to do it in behalf of the Slave, but not by supporting the Republican party, as that party did not contemplate the interference with Slavery within the Slave States but merely to exclude it from the Territories. Dea. John O. Wilson, our Representative elect, in a neat and happy speech expressed his admiration for John Brown, and his admiration for his Christian fortitude under troubles and trials that would overwhelm ordinary men. Mr. Wilson was heartily applauded. Rev. Mr. Smith, G. E. Rockwood and R. E. Fawell made eloquent and pertinent speeches, when after considering the resolutions that had been previously been offered, the meeting adjourned. The meeting was a successful one, and on the whole satisfactory. Perfect freedom of speech was allowed, and sentiments not in harmony with the majority of the meeting were loudly applauded by those who were pleased with them.
Letter in Response to The John Brown Meeting in NatickNatickMA8888888945Cary Holmes2012-01-06 00:18:13The Natick Observer Dec. 10, 1859 p. 2Written by John B. MassThe Natick Observer December 10, 1859 To Rev. N. D. George Dear Sir: I propose to address you a few words upon the subject matter of your speech at the John Brown meeting, held in this place on Friday evening of last week. In doing so I must be very brief in order to accommodate the space which will be allowed me in the Observer, and I cannot therefore waste many words in explaining or defending the propriety of my doing so. You were one of the committee of arrangements. You met with that committee and acted with them. It was understood that to some extent you sympathized with the objects of the meeting, and I belief that you assented to the proposition of having the church bells tolled, and gave your consent to have the bell of the Methodist Church tolled with the rest. I believe that you were aware of that the purpose of the meeting was to advance the Anti-Slavery cause, and it was understood by your remarks in committee, that you were willing to speak at the meeting to that end; nay, that you were desirous of doing so. The opportunity was accorded to you, and you were placed at the head of the list, if I mistake not, that you might give a leading tone to the meeting, in the right directions. I presume that the action of the meeting, subsequently, satisfied you that you failed to meet the expectations of the people, and I propose to show that the argument advanced by you was unsound. I propose to do this because your influential position as a clergyman has given a degree of weight to your speech, which the logic of the speech did not sustain, and I hope to be able to convince even yourself that such is the case. I understood you to claim that the Constitution of the United States was Pro-Slavery---that its Pro-Slavery provisions are binding upon us at the North and are the measure of our duty in relation to action upon the subject. In other words, we must do as the Constitution requires, interpreted by its present administrators. Now sir, if your position is correct, John Brown was a criminal and was rightfully hung. He was a traitor and murderer, and Gov. Wise and the Court which tried him were right in putting him to death. It will not do for me now to enter into any elaborate vindication of Brown as there is not room, but I regard his act as the practical and logical result of the Anti-Slavery argument. It was the “irrepressible conflict” brought to a head, and all Anti-Slavery men in the last resort must stand just there. All who are not prepared for that must sustain Wise. But I may remark that in regard to other matters, this bugbear of the Constitution does not befog people. You sir, would unquestionably send the Bible to the heathen, though Congress should prohibit it. If Congress should pass an act against praying, you would nevertheless be daily found in your closet. If the people should vote unanimously to have you bow down and worship the golden calf, and should amend the Constitution for that purpose, you would refuse to obey. To disobey such laws you would regard as an honor and sacred duty. John Brown reasoned on Slavery in the same manner, and why shouldn’t he? Does one sin differ in moral character from another, or only in degree? Can Congress change the moral character of Slavery any more than any other sin? Can Congress abrogate the command to “remember those in bonds as bound with them?” I had supposed that all Anti-Slavery men of intelligence took the broad ground that Slavery is sin, and that no Constitution or enactment, or agreement, can bind us to its support. Indeed, such is the palpable force of this proposition that a large portion of the supporters of the Democratic party in New England do not hesitate to defend the action of that party by affirming the natural correlative, to wit: that Slaves are rightful property. Bust since the delivery of your speech I have found several who fancy that a way has a last been developed by Which God and Satan can both be served at the same time---that Slavery though wrong, can be rightfully sustained by means of the Constitution. It is an awful fallacy, and I beg you to consider it. I do not think you fully believe it, but have been misled by the sophistries of the Pro-Slavery press, so the advocacy of a false position. But my sheet is full and I must desist. I make no attack on your motives, but assail the error of your position as I understand it. J. B. M.
Letter: Perhaps Revolution Is The SolutionNatickMA8888888946Cary Holmes2013-05-01 19:46:20The Natick Observer December 17, 1859 Page 2John B. Mann Natick SelectmanThe Natick Observer December 17, 1859 To Rev. N. D. George Number Two In my last letter, I took the position that John Brown was right and Gov. Wise was wrong, but want of space compelled me to forego explanations of my exact meaning. Now, I did not mean that Brown was right in the means employed or the time chosen for his operations. Of that, I have not the means of judging at the present, and none of us have. I meant that John Brown was right in principle; and if he was in possession of such information that led him to suppose his efforts could be made successful, it was his duty to proceed. This is the justification of all revolutions. All revolutionists must be sure that they are right, and must see a reasonable prospect of success in order to stand justified before the world; though I am not sure but what they would be justified before God in striking a blow at any time. Rev. Mr. Tyler in his speech enquired “at what time revolutions become legitimate?” Now I suppose that revolutions become legitimate always whenever wrong is inflicted and all other conceivable means have failed to obtain redress or relief. This was the ground assumed by the patriots of 76 and it cannot be maintained than that Washington, Warren, Adams and Jefferson were scoundrels, traitors and murderers. This I suppose will be granted. If one case is stronger than the other and in respects clearer, the advantage is on the side of Brown; because the wrong inflicted upon the negroes is almost infinitely greater, the cry for relief has gone up much longer and the prospect for deliverance by ordinary means is far less probable. After thirty years of anti-slavery effort the number of slaves is larger than at any former time; the value of capital invested is very much greater; the assurance and audacity of the slave holders is much in excess of any former time; the moral, ecclesiastical and legal supports of the system are more powerful than ever before; the firmness, resolution and confidence of the opponents of the system have been lessening for some years. Well, if the question is too large for us now, how will it be when the Slave population is doubled, as it will be in twenty years? Then it will be surrounded with double difficulties---it will have all of its ramifications and complications twice as perplexing as now, and it will require a double sacrifice to get rid of it. There is a natural law of increase of the Slave population which cannot be arrested and a natural law of increase of moral contamination which goes with it, that renders this result certain. John Brown is the only man who has met the question or dared to meet it full in the face. To meet it now by revolution, will save one half the blood, one half the misery, one half the lives that will be required twenty-five years hence; and that it must be met finally in that way is rendered certain from the fact that it cannot be met in any other way now. J.B.M.

The whole number is ONE THOUSAND AND SIX. The list is imperfect, yet in its present state, it is sufficient to fill the southern regions with consternation -- but it falls far short of the truth, as to the growth and strength of the abolition cause, though it occupies 18 pages in small type! The number of societies, whose members are reported, is 607, leaving 399 from whom no returns have been made. The number of members belonging to these 607, if our hasty enumeration be correct, is 55, 790, averaging about 90 to each society.

Macy Anna Gardner Oliver C. Gardner David Huntington Susan Dow Edward I. Pompey Eunice C. Macy Charlotte AustinA NEW COUNTY SOCIETY, IN NANTUCKET Nantucket, 10th mo. 5th, William Lloyd Garrison: Respected Friend --- Agreeably with a vote passed at a meeting of the abolitionists of Nantucket, held on the 28th of 6th mo, I transmit for publication in the Liberator, a report of the formation of a new County Anti-Slavery Society in the place. It has not sympathy, as will be seen, with that narrow, proscriptive spirit, which would exclude women from the free exercise of their rights and privileges, as members of anti-slavery society. …… it was thought expedient to resolve the County Anti-Slavery Society, which comprised nearly three hundred members, (many of who were merely nominal abolitionists, and as such, rather retarded , than facilitated the progress of the cause,) and the Women’s Anti-Slavery Society, into one organization. The following persons were appointed officers: President, David Joy; Vice Presidents, Eliza Barney, Peter Macy, Alexander Robinson, and Elizabeth G. Macy; Corresponding Secretary, Andrew M. Macy, Recording Secretary, Anna Gardner, Treasurer, Oliver C. Gardner; Executive Committee, David Huntington, Susan Dow, Edward I. Pompey, Eunice C. Macy and Charlotte Austin. As yet only fifty names have been appended to the constitution. A new impulse seems to have been given to the cause among us; …… much more will be done through this instrumentality for its promotion during the coming year. Anna Garnder, Rec.Sec.
