Again, it may not be very surprising that the man who threatened the people of Baltimore with, assassination by servile agency, should issue even such a paper as this. It will indeed shock the civilized world; and the man whose arm will not feel nerved by it to strike a heavier blow upon the enemy, must not only be base born, but dead to all the instinots of humanity.
