for an 'office, never served in anY official 'ca

a holy horror of a politician, particularly an
unsuccessfulrone; and in the present instance
- wash bur hands of any intention to meddle
out of our sphere. Nothing but outraged
huManity could bring us out, and outraged
humanity has brought Its out. Listen to our
