nding evils of slaveholding. They saw that end of the chain which encircled the ankle of the bondsman; they do not seem to have so clearly perceived that the other lay heavily across the throat of even his sleeping master. Homer — if we may take Pope's word for it — observed that Jove fixed it certain, that whatever day Makes man a slave, takes half his worth away; but that the slaveholding relation effected an equal discount on the value of the master appears to have escaped him. It is noou ever saw. He perfectly realizes all my ideas of Nestor. His literature is great, his knowledge of the world extensive, and his faculties as bright as ever. * * He is quite a pr<*> chevalier; heroic, romantic, and full of the old gallantry.
