1855 he was elected a Senator of the United States to
succeed Edward Everett. He advocated the repeal of
the Fugitive Slave Law, and the abolition of slavery in
the District of Columbia, and became in 1855 one of
the leaders of the Republican party, then just organized.
In May, 1856, he was challenged by Preston S. Brooks
because he denounced his assault on Mr. Sumner as
"murderous, brutal, and cowardly." He declined to
accept the challenge, on the ground that duelling was
forbidden by the laws of his country ; at the same time
he notified his challenger that, if attacked, his conscien-
tious scruples would not prevent him from defending
himself. He was re-elected to the Senate of the United
States about January, 1859, and in March of that year
made a speech in defence of free labour, which attracted
much attention. He rendered great service to the
country during the civil war, as chairman of the com-
mittee on military affairs. General Scott declared that
he performed in one session more work than all the
chairmen of the military committees had done in twenty
years. In 1861 he raised a regiment, and received a
commission as colonel ; but his duties in the Senate
prevented him from remaining long in the field. He was
the author of the bill by which slavery was abolished in
the District of Columbia, April, 1862. During the civil
war he introduced many important measures to organize
and develop the military resources of the nation, and
delivered about one hundred speeches at various places
in support of the cause of liberty and union. "No
public man," says Headley, " ever brought to the high
duties of a great occasion more sympathy for the toiling
and the oppressed, or more faith in the people and the
democratic institutions of his country." In 1865 he was
again elected to the Senate for six years, and in 1872
was chosen Vice-President of the United States, in which
office he died, November 22, 1875.

Commenting on " The City of the Plague," the " Edin-
burgh Review" for June, 1816, says, " We take our
leave of it with unfeigned regret and very sincere ad-
miration of the author's talents. He has, undoubtedly,
the heart and fancy of a poet, and, with these great
requisites, is almost sure of attaining the higher honours
of his art, if he continues to cultivate it with the docility
and diligence of which he has already given proof."

In 1820, Wilson and Sir William Hamilton were
competitors for the chair of moral philosophy in the
University of Edinburgh, which the former obtained.

principal topics of the day. "They contain," says R.
Caruthers, "oassages of 'admirable fooling,' shrewd
observation, description, and criticism. . . . There was
originality with fervour and boldness in all he wrote. It
was mixed with baser matter, in the shape of invitations
to coarse jollity, and fierce political and personal satire;
but the frank, genial, literary spirit predominated."
