By these frank avowals of one of the chief men in the Confederacy, that Slavery was the corner-stone of their government, so called — that it was founded upon the principle that a superior race has a divine right to enslave an inferior race — that its ethics were those of the savage, who insists that Might makes right; and the explicit avowal of the chief leader, tha

The letter was as follows:-- Baltimore, April 17, 1861. my dear son:--Your remarks last Sabbath were telegraphed to Baltimore, and published in an extra. Has God sent you to preach the sword, or to preach Christ? your Mother. The son replied:-- Boston, April 22, 1861. dear Mother:--God has sent me not only to preach the sword, but to use it. When this Government tumbles, look amongst the ruins for your Star-Spangled banner son. and within ten days from the time of its departure, full ten thousand men of the city of New York were on the march toward the Capital. John Sherman, now (1865) United States Senator from Ohio, was then an aid-de-camp of General Patterson. He was sent by that
