a3ed no eulogy. Public opinion' has long since
pronounced them superior to any other nov

cease until a crisis shall have been reached and
passed; 'a house divided against itself cannot

Wendell'Phillips, shortly after the organiza

party saith. ' . •
“NO man ; hair a right:to be surprised at .this

And Horace Greeley, while 'admitting 'that
the abolition of slavery in the States 'is the real.
:object of the Jlepublican, party,, explains the
reason why they, did not then openly aciyogete
the. doctrine.' We quote 'from his paper (the
Tribune) Of . July 28, 1854: '
• 4'We.eontend that the abolition of slavery in
the States is the real
,object. of the Republican,
. .
::Admit that Abolition in the States is what '
all men ought to stri4 for, and it is clear to
ourmind that &large majority.are not prepared
for this, and the practical question is this—shall
. we.politically attempt what will certainly
iolve us in defeat and failure? 'or shall we not
'rather attempt that which 'a majority .are 'ripe
for; and thus, by our conseqUent triumph, invite'
that Majority to go further? Shall we.insiat on
