George Fitzhugh, a leading publicist of Virginia, in an article in De Bow's Review (the acknowledged organ of the Slave interest) for February, 1861, commenting on the Message, said;--It is a gross mistake to suppose that Abolition is the cause of dissolutit the North. he said:--This feeling of peace at home has given place to apprehensions of servile insurrection. Many a matron throughout the South retires at night in dread of what may befall herself and her children before the morning.

It should also be noted that Fitzhugh was an admirer of Thomas Carlyle, with whom he corresponded, and that his style shows unmistakable evidences of the great Scotchman's influence. Pro-slavery propaganda was not confined to teachers and publicists. The clergy also made their contribution. Dr. Thornton Str
