Senator Wilson, in a speech at Worcester said, that when he and others were conveying Mr. Sumner to his lodgings, Mr. S. remarked: "I shall give it to them again if God spares my life.

There is no doubt of it. Mr. Sumner in extremes could not be other than he was in the full energy of life and debate. He is thoroughly imbued with his "mission." He is now, beyond doubt, preparing a copious revenge. Unhappily, such must be the natural consequence of violence of any sort. One act begs another, and the end cannot be foreseen. The Senate has had some experience now; and as the conservation of its own dignity and the peace of the community is within its own keeping, let us hope that the personalities of debate will be restrained within the proprieties essential to the decorum of national legislation.
