    He served in the Kentucky Legislature and published an anti-slavery journal. He was also one of the founders of the Republican Party, served as Minister to Russia, helped negotiate the Alaska purchase and claimed much credit for the Emancipation Proclamation.
    Who was he?

    Cassius Marcellus Clay wrote The Life, Memoirs, Writings, and Speeches of Cassius Marcellus Clay showing his Conduct in Overthrow of American Slavery, the Salvation of the Union and the Restoration of the Autonomy of the States.

    Edit - The question asked for the name of the anti-slavery journal published by Clay, not the title of a biography of him.
