Charles Congdon, Tribune Essays: Leading Articles Contributing to the New York Tribune from 1857 to 1863. (ed. Horace Greeley), The Slaveholding Utopia. (search)
ons of the equality of even white men before their Creator, which is the essence of Christian brotherhood. The Whig complains that, in the tempest and torrent of the Rebellion, men are plotting for the establishment of something like a monarchy, and for an aristocracy founded upon wealth. The Whig in an exceedingly bilious way, reprehends these schemes against Democracy and Human White Equality, because it fears, as we fancy, that in the good time coming Editors will hardly be made Royal Dukes, and Printers hardly Baronets. The titles to this new nobility will be found in bills of the sale of Slaves; we may have Count Cuffee, or Sir Benjamin Barracoon, Prince Cotton-Pod, or the Marquis of Fine-Cut; but although these great people may condescend to take The Whig, and although a few of them may very punctually pay their yearly bills, and be highly gratified by reading his effusions, it will be hard for the Editor, in the new arrangement, to achieve so much as the simple Squirehood.

invading Canada. The retribution was terrible. More than 1,000 French settlers were slain, and the whole province was threatened with destruction. The French then attacked the English. A party of Canadians and Indians burned Schenectady in 1690, and murdered nearly all of the inhabitants. In 1691 the province of New York was redivided into ten counties—namely, New York, Westchester, Ulster, Albany, Dutchess, Orange. Richmond, Kings, Queens, and Suffolk. Cornwall county, in Maine, and Dukes county, in Massachusetts, forming a part of the domain of New York, were transferred to those colonies under its new charter. The French invaded the Mohawk country in 1693, but the greater part of them perished before they reached Canada. Count Frontenac, governor of Canada, prepared to attack the Five Nations with all his power, when the governor of New York (Earl of Bellomont) declared that the English would make common cause with the Iroquois Confederacy. The colony was largely inv

nsolation to perceive that the English themselves and the Scotch are committing the same blunder that cis-Atlantic barbarians were guilty of. The Empress of the French visits Great Britain for her health, which is impaired; she goes in the strictest privacy; she is in deep and recent mourning; every consideration should induce the people of England to respect her wish for seclusion. Yet she is followed by crowds who press upon her as eagerly as Backwood Democrats did upon the descendant of the Black Prince; she is worried with salutations and bored with addresses; bells are rung when she enters a railroad car, invitations are thrust upon her, municipal authorities intrude themselves on her notice. Dukes and Provosts are alike in this matter; curiosity gets the better of courtly courtesy as well as of republican breeding, and the worst taste and the worst manners of the Americans are paralleled among those who affect to censure and contemn everything that is American.--Boston Post.
sposition, however, among the brave gentlemen who now swell the ranks of the South Carolina soldiery. We take it for granted that men of the highest social pretensions in the South will not be slow to volunteer in the ranks, as the highest nobles and gentlemen of England did on the apprehension of a French invasion. The ranks of the citizen soldiers, raised to defend England, are full to overflowing of the proudest aristocracy of the land, sometimes whole companies being mainly composed of Dukes, Earls and Barons. Moreover, in the organization of a Southern Army, we shall, if we are wise, adopt the system of France, the most military nation of the world, in which every soldier is considered a gentleman, and when off duty as much entitled to courteous recognition from his officer as if both were civilians; and in every case keep the door of promotion to the highest rank open to the humblest private.--Beginning right; enforcing the strictest military discipline, yet discarding the st
vement, however he may have sought privately to enlist English co operation with France in its favor. Nor has France at any time intermeddled with American concerns, nor in any way exerted her influence in attenuating the Northern and Southern States of the old American Union from each other. French emissaries have never come to this continent for the purpose of setting the North and the South by the ears on the subject of slavery; there has been no Exeter Hall in Paris, there have been no Dukes and Duchesses to patronize runaway negroes. When Mrs. Stowe visited that city, instead of the ovation she received in England, she produced no sensation. Great Britain, on the contrary, has been the great Abolition power of the world. She has been the "Genius of Universal Emancipation." There is no proposition in mathematics which can be more clearly demonstrated than that, for more than a quarter of a century, England has employed the slavery, subject to divide and ruin her commercial an
A Big gathering of Nobs. --At the levee of the Prince of Wales, on the 25th of February, the nobility and gentry were in swarms. Here is an estimate. The levee yesterday was attended by about one thousand seven hundred of the nobility and gentry. There were present nineteen Dukes, one hundred and thirty five Peers, and two Queen's Counsels, thirty-four Admirals and sixty-eight other naval officers eighty-three Generals and four hundred and eighty four officers of the army, and about fifty clergyman.
re. --Aristocracies the world will have, either of genuine gold or gilded copper; either of ancient birth, or of education, or of mushroom wealth. That to which we object is the hypocrisy which professes to hate all aristocracy, and is the most obsequious, servile, and soulless worshipper of aristocracy in all the world.--In this respect, as in many others, the people of the United States were the greatest humbugs in all Christendom.--Not in Europe itself can greater obsequiousness be found to rank and title. We are afraid that our own country is not entirely free from the disgraceful weakness. In the name of all that is manly and honest, let our institutions be either faithful outward signs of the inner man, or the inner man conform to the outward sign. If we hold in such ecstatic delight everything that savors of title, why not establish titles of our own — make Dukes, Earls, and Counts of some of our old families — and have the name as well as the thing that we so pine afte
