"To be sure, my son," said the dying mD; "it is well th'ou?ht of, and 1 will do il DOW." He gave tho names of six, the usual Dumber, and tank back exhausted upon bit pillow. A gleam of thought parsed over his withered features like a ray of light, nnd h rallied once more. "My son read the litl. Is the name of Mr. Wiggins there ?'' "It is, father."

The simple truth is that our nation had not learned tat (io 1 did not create ouo raco of his children to bo trampled upn by another; nor that she is but a single na tion instead of a dozen of nations.

Until the rebellion, tho commerce, politie-i. rrligi-iu jnUenees in the North were an 1 social mainiy in the servico or slavery ; nnd did much to giro strength and ratnpancy to its in.er- nal spirit, oitiing hko nan tne poopie of tho North thought a man disqualified by his idaveholding to preach the flo.pel of Jesus Christ; and scarcely ono in hundred or them would have refined lo vote for a slaveholder for President.

Nor must it be for gotten that the hundred thousand Domi nicans are just now enjoying a complete md hnal triumph over tho many millions of Spain. Itome, like ourselves, was a iC TrtrrTtrSn' nTa.,y"yu, Knu iT v io 7. .f(r to achieve an entire conqueu of tho few Cantabrians. The lesson of such cases is that a people, however great, should be ware or driving to desperation a people however small. It may be hoped that tho negroes or the South would stand in the wny of this apprehended guerrilla war fare. A part might. Hut the remainder identifying it with justice nnd mercy, might hasten to identify themselves with it. Moreover, if our Government shall be guilty of what scorns to be bad faith or cruelty toward tho conquered rebels, would there bp a disaffection at the North bir inorealnrmiag than that hitherto man ifested? In a word, would not tha Gov ernment thereby ruakoan enemy or tho South and an enemy ofthe North also?
