Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 14. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), The secession of Virginia. (search)
men will stand to their guns and make a fight which shall shine out on the page of history as an example of what a brave people can do after exhausting every means of pacification. Yes; old Virginia clung to the Union and the Constitution with filial devotion. The voice of her Henry had first aroused the colonies to resist British oppression. The pen of her Jefferson had written the Declaration of Independence. The sword of her Washington had made good that Declaration. The pen of her Mason had written the Constitution, and her great statesmen had expounded it. Through long, prosperous, and happy years her sons had filled the presidential chair, and her voice had been potential, in Cabinet and Congress, in shaping the destinies of the great republic to whose prosperity she had contributed so largely. But now there had arisen another king that knew not Joseph—the very fundamental principles of the Constitution were, in her judgment, subverted—civil war, with all of its horror

at day in denouncing the President, we also differ from the writer in attaching duplicity to the leading members of the Whig party, or apostacy to Clay in his connection with the bank bills. The men on each side of this excited contest were of an honor and integrity that would never have stooped to anything reflective on their character. The cordial union of Webster and the President, and the Cabinet he appointed, consisting of Forward, McLean, Upshur, Wickliff, Legare, Gilmer, Calhoun and Mason, is strong proof of his honor and integrity, and we are pleased to think that John Tyler, President of the United States, outlived every slander and abuse uttered against his name and character, and that the voice of those by whom he was well known to the day of his death, and the historic page, alike concur in one belief of his untouched honor. The statement of the President, published in the work before us, which was, however, well known in the history of the bank question, is in every r

the government was interfering and checking the progress of the work, and finally informed you when the authorities forbade the completion of the rams, and directed the builders of the corvettes to sell them. When the consultation between Messrs. Mason, Slidell, and myself was held in Paris, the result of which has already been reported to you, it was unanimously agreed that the ironclads must of necessity be sold, but it was thought that the corvettes should be completed, as the builders were confident that the government would not interfere with their departure, if despatched as commercial vessels, and under the assumed ownership of private individuals. Thus fortified by the opinions and advice of Messrs. Mason and Slidell, I gave M. Arman, the principal builder, written instructions to sell the ships, upon his representation that such a course was necessary in order that he might be able to show to the Minister of Marine that his business connection with me had ceased.

that men held dear, with the selfish spirit of the soldier of fortune, himself the only god of his idolatry. I have been thus particular in giving this incident, because it has been by various writers of the life of Lee confounded with the other two incidents of a like character which I have before given. In fact, to our great Commander, so low in his opinion of himself and so sublime in all his actions, these were matters of small moment; and when written to by a friend in Maryland (Judge Mason), after the war, as to whether such an incident ever occurred, replied briefly, Yes; General Gordon was the General—alluding thus concisely to the incident of the early morning of the 12th, when General Gordon led the charge, passing over the similar occurrences entirely, in his characteristic manner of never speaking of himself when he could help it. But that which was a small matter to him was a great one to the men whom he thus led At nightfall our line of battle still covered four
