, The theory of radical abolitionism as
propounded by its most eminent leudeis

detestable instrument. They dunauded
; the exodus of tho idave over the ruins of
tho American Union. They avowed boss

ings all Iheir exertions being the abolition
of slavery, they recognized no human law,
treaty or compact as oi suuicieni. lorco to

"Was it not that Hie only hopo for the
