When God would prepare Mosea for

earth, iu which dwollelh righteousness,

yeais of guiity rebellion, aud cruel war,
are no more than dirt upon the fraud,
which a student's washing removes, aud
leaves the hand clean as before '( Such a
war readies down to the very vitals of
society. ' "
Emerging from such a prolonged rebel
lion, he is bliud who tells you that the
state, by a mere amuesty and benevolence
ot Government, can be put ' again by a
mere decree, iu its old place. It would
uot be honest, l would not be kind or
fraternal, for mo to pieteud that South
ern revolution agaiust the Union has not
reacted, aad wrought revolution in the
Southeru states themselves, aud inaugu
ted a new dispensation.

tho piece which rebellion put in, and was
weaving, baa been mt, and every thread
broken. Yoa must put in new warp aud
new woof, and, weaving anew, as the "fab
