of sufieiing and hunger 'appeal.- to us ', from
all abolition tjons, where hundreds of thern
are huddled together in rags and filth, ' per
ishing arid rtarv iiig. Only a few ' days ago
Congress appropriated $2i",0K.O to save froni
.starvation, a few days, longer, the miserable,
inm.ttes of these abolition pens in that city.'
And j-ou call these 'wrcrchoa victims of your
policy Treedmcn." And the act by1 which
j-ou placed theni in this condition, you call,
."emancipation." 'But 'Viie' iron pen of
history will record it the most' monstrous1
act of cruelty that ever darkened tho-annuals
of any.' of the nations of the earth."
Yes the country begins to see now that ab
olitionism and riot the Constitution isindeel
"a covenant with death-', to the neT."
Not 'content with th-3 ruin th jy have
wrought, these pestilent agitators sicij on
the fact that slavery is abblili6 1, ah 1 luake
that the' basis of a new conSiet. Th'ay are
now everywhere striking for negro equality
warring against the laws of nature, seeking to
blot out ad distinctions, and crush down" the
white race to political and .' social equality
with the blacks; all for th-j purpose of gain
ing a new recruit of negro voters to aid
them in;. ruling and. governing the .white
people in the South and lorder State?. ( The
natural tendency' of this movement will be
to engender a bitterness of feeling and burn
ing antagonism between the whites iul
blacks that may break out in awar-jf races,
resulting in the extermination of the whole
remnant of the negro race in this country.
-But taking for their motto "Better scign ia
hell than scrve'in heaven,", these, mad rest
less spirits rush on to another conflict,, reck
less of all consequences, determined to rule
or ruin. And the country will see . after
awhile, begin to tee now, that abolitionism,
not hlaverj-, was.lhi "sum of ail villainies;",
and the poor deluded negro , will find too
late that his master was his best and kindest
friend, and the , abolitionist his worst . and.
most cruel enemy. . - '
Messrs Editors, the rebellion in the South 1
an plead in extenuation much provocation
long and patiently borne, but the- northern
rebellion can urge 110 such plea.' i Radical
ism in the North was the source and origin
of all the terrible convulsions' and MooJy
i horrors thiscountry has ever'suforsd. The -
South," with all its errors, made iio .aggres
ions On the rights of the North. It never
intermeddled with,' 'nor sought to 'control,
the domestic institutions, of the States in
the North. '. The South claimed only, to ex-ccrt-ise
that control over its own domestic
affairs it freely conceded to the North, and
which was secured n to both by a common
Constitution."' But tiie" Radicals of the
North without the hoo'cF benefiting J that
section,"and with' no "teriiptatioii save the
gratification of a fallen, -depraved, and mal
ignant spirit denounced the Constitution as
"a league with death and j a covenant , with'
hell," aad made . lawless and,, unprovoked
aggressions from year to year on the oonsti
tatiorial rights of the Soutlu : This led to the
formation of two bitter sectionil parties, one
in the North and one in the South. And as
foretold by the Father of his Country, these
sectional parties soon brought on' a horrid
conflict that reddened the laud with kindred
blood, and blasted the country with desola
tion, as if smitten by tho lightaingsofhcav
en. i i ' ' ' -;
; ; "By their fruits you shall .; know; them.'
Radicalism in the North .sowed and cultiva
ted the secyl, and the fruit was a harvest of
blood. To conceal its horrid visage, radi
calism put on the robe 'of philanthropy, and
four millions of the' black race aro robbed of
home and protection,; and doomed to exter
mination, while the whold race of free white
laborers throughout the whole country are
sold into the galling slavery of taxation, cut
off even from the, hope 'that; their children
after them will be; emancipated. - Thus ha
the sun-dial of prosperity and happiness of
this great country been set back half a cen
tury; And now, the same party, under
another name, and with the cry of liberty
'on its tongue, is earnestly striving to subvert
the foundation' of republican (government,
laboring to centralize, consolidate, and build
up a frightful Federal dyspotl.sni, ' under
whose duk and deadly shadow self-government
and all State Rights would utterly sink
and perish. ' ' ' ' . .
.' '."The people have been too long .deceived
by the hypocritical professions and fair names
assumed by the northern disunionists. ' ' They
should remember thatunderthe mask of the
best na.ncn the worst crimes have been com
mitted. In the name of liberty ami equal
ity". France was deluged in blood, while all
law and all liberty lay prostrate beneath the
iron tread of tiTanny. j And in other days,
