Charles Congdon, Tribune Essays: Leading Articles Contributing to the New York Tribune from 1857 to 1863. (ed. Horace Greeley), Benjamin's Second notice. (search)
tfield when he heard that Toby was dead and Benjamin Screws would not, except upon legal compulsion, pay him over the $1,350--Toby's price. There seems to have been a great deal of distress all around. Whitfield was distressed for the $1,350; Colonel Hardy was distressed at having only the fatal measles, when he expected a fine field-hand; and dear Benjamin Screws was distressed, because he had, in a thoughtless moment, compromised his character as a negro-broker by disposing of a measly African. Send me my $1,350, wrote Whitfield. I can't do it, wrote Benjamin in reply. Toby, he continued, is dead — of the measles. I warranted him against the measles and all other cutaneous disorders. He had one of them, however, and his life has paid the penalty of his audacity. Hardy says I must pay him and not you. Whether or not friend Screws ended with d — Toby, we cannot say. Very likely he has, in the most unnecessary manner, consigned Toby to that fate before this. Well, to ma
Charles Congdon, Tribune Essays: Leading Articles Contributing to the New York Tribune from 1857 to 1863. (ed. Horace Greeley), Roundheads and Cavaliers. (search)
scinating chronicle tells you of honorable enterprises, noble adventures and deeds of arms; but such really do not remind you of anything done by Preston Brooks, or Henry A. Wise or John Tyler. Even if the English Cavaliers did plant Maryland and Virginia, which is not true, although so often and so confidently asserted, the condition of very considerable portions of both of those States would seem to indicate a sad deterioration of the blood, through the admixture of that of several Royal African houses and overthrown black Stuarts. With all their faults, neither few nor small, the English cavaliers were gentlemen, and did neither mean things nor cruel ones, as the Virginia cavaliers continually do. The English cavalier would have been ashamed to get into a tempest, torrent and whirlwind of wrath with a woman — some small school-mistress, perchance, who had offended him by going to conventicle; the English cavalier would have thought it a work below his condition to arrest pedlars

edient that missionaries should be sent thither, in order to convert so wise a nation to Christianity. Should the political dreamers of the South, by any stroke of fortune, be left to their abominable devices, and thus be enabled to try before the world an experiment of promoting the genuine prosperity of the few by reducing the many to the lowest pitch of moral and physical squalor, it is possible that missionaries might be sent from the North.to South Carolina, as they are now sent to Central Africa and that some new Livingston might win the noblest of laurels, at the risk of his life, by carrying Christian civilization to Alabama or Mississippi. For it is very certain that whatever perfection the South might attain in the art of civil government, it must still want the very elements of religion. Indeed, if we understand at all this little extract from The Richmond Whig, which is now before us, it is the avowed purpose of a portion, at least, of the Rebels, to be rid, in the ver
Charles Congdon, Tribune Essays: Leading Articles Contributing to the New York Tribune from 1857 to 1863. (ed. Horace Greeley), Mr. Davis proposes to Fast. (search)
of their ability to fast, in a genteel, orthodox and acceptable manner, we advise them, before the 27th of March, which is the day appointed, to take a few lessons of their niggers. Many of these are great adepts, through sad and involuntary experience, in the ascetic art of fasting; many of them are living monuments of the ability of man to exist upon next to nothing; and most of them have quite as much religion, to say the least of it, as their masters. Let Mr. Davis and his friends apply at the quarter-houses of the men-servants and maid-servants, as brother Davis calls them, for all necessary information. There are scrupulous persons who might object to the prayers of Rebels, as, to a certain extent, blasphemous. But we do not. Let them pray. The cannibals of Sumatra pray. The greasy and mud-smeared savages of Central Africa pray. There is said to be no heathen without a religion — all the other heathens pray,--and pray why should not the Confederates? March 11, 1863
