revilers of the great Preacher of Righteousness cried: Crucify him! Crucify him! His blood be on us, and on our children! In the judgments which speedily fell upon the presumptuous Jew and the Slaveholder, do we not see a remarkable historical parallel? The conspirator continued:--Let us alone. Let me tell you, my dear cousin, that if there is any attempt at war on the part of the North, we can soundly thrash them on any field of battle; and not only that, we can give them over to Jean Jaques, and leave them to manage that. We know our strength. Why, we export over two hundred millions of produce, which the world eagerly seeks and cannot do without.

Oh, more than thrice-blest relic, more Than solemn rite or sacred lore, The holy life of one who trod The foot-marks of the Christ of God!
