It seems to be a part of the . plans
divine providen c e that every marked ad ciyilization must b egiu ii mighty
convithions. The moral: lay.;, was first
proclaimed in the thur.a.erP, of. Sinai, and
the earthly mission of the Saviour of
mankind closed with
mountains and the rending 'of .
the throes of the earth
quake... The 'Vroddesi of Liberty herself
was ' borax in the shock of battle, and
amidst its__ evaao has carved- on t:-her ,
grandest 'victories, while o'er iticrimson
ed fields the race has marched. on to
hip„;her and , nobler.destinies. As the
li , gittnings of Heaven rend t.nd destroy
(Ally to purify and revigerate, 'so free
dotn's rannon furrows thefields of de
caying empires ; and seeds them anew
with human gore, from ,which springs
a 'more vigorous race, to cherish the hopes
It i pd guard the rights of mankind. -
I "Some _things are worthless, and sonic so good
That nations who buy them pay only in blood."
The long promised nrillehium of the
race will come when all governments, are
based on the consent of the goVerned,
and every human .being is in the enjoy
ment of liberty, protected bylaw. . Then,
and not till then, can' the
. swerds be beat
into plowshares and the spears into prun-,
ing hooke. The lion and the lamb will
lie down together when liberty and op-._
pression, justice and injustice, shall cease
toftiqggle - for supremacy in the affairs
me. Till that time the ear of human
ity will be ' pained' with the roar of hostile
cannon ; and the angels must weep over
ilie t xnart:4ed brave. - ,
Never•was sword unsheathed in holier
cause than tlaatof the perpetuity of the .
American Union, `for..if , the time shall
ever come that, torn - by faction aud,
national strife, it falls, rent and dismem
bered, it - will be' - the *knell of man's
political hopes, the death sigh - of liberty
:on earth. The last great experiment of
free elective government among men will
then have been tried; *and the Goddess
of ..I4iberty, heaving .*her last sigh, may
wing her way back from eartlito Heaven ;
and the downtrodden -of the world can
*hug ttieir chains as the only legacy they
can bequeath 'to their children.
