Johnson, owing to its length, and the pressure upon our columns of other matter, we are unable to give even a synopsis of its points.

Eloquent eulogies were pronounced on Wm. Lloyd Garrison, Our Wilberforee of America. Wendell Phillips, Charles Sumner, and Gen. Butler, and to the memories of Lincoln and John Brown. The orator closed by advising the colored people to dedicate their lives to the well-begun work, until their full rights were granted to them. The Poem of J. M. Whitfield was well delivered, and a worthy production. The orator and poet were frequently interrupted with applause.The Alta says: - The oration was a well written and well delivered production, and reflect great credit upon its author.

The Poem, too, was good, and received marked applause from the audience during delivery.The Times says: - The Doctor possesses a well cultivated mind, and considerable ability as an orator. They express their regret that the demands on their columns prevent them from giving the eloquent composition in full. The orator was frequently interrupted by the applause of the audience. A large number of white people were present. The poem was a really able composition. It deserves to be read entire.The Morning Call says: - The delivery of the oration was marked by considerable force of expression, and a tendency to eulogize certain of the great Abolition leaders.

The poem was a meritorious production.The Pacific Appeal says: - The oration was a success. The hall was densely crowded with two thousand white and colored persons indiscriminately. The oration was the theme of admiration and praise by all who were present during the exercises. Dr. Johnson was interrupted nearly one hundred times during the delivery of his oration by outbursts of applause, and at its close the audience rose en masse and gave him three rousing cheers, the ladies waving their handkerchief, and the colored brass band joining in sweet strains of music by playing the Star Spangled Banner.

The scene was thrilling in the extreme- but the Dr. bore the honors like a self-poised veteran will perfect composure. Of the Poem we will sayWhitfield commands- your aid, O Muses, bring!What Muse for Whitfield can refuse to sing.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
