I distrust these guns at Fort Sumter.
I do not believe that Abraham Lincoln means war. I do not believe in the madness of the Cabinet.
Nothing but madness can provoke war with the Gulf States.
My suspicion is this : that the Administration dares not compromise.
It trembles before the five hundred thousand readers of the New-York Tribune.
But there is a safe way to compromise.
It is this: seem to provoke war. Cannonade the forts.
What will be the first result?
New-York commerce is pale with bankruptcy.
The affrighted seaboard sees grass growing in its streets.
It will start up every man whose livelihood hangs upon trade, intensifying him into a compromiser.
Those guns fired at Fort Sumter are only to frighten the North into a compromise.
If the Administration provokes bloodshed, it is a trick,—nothing else.
It is the masterly cunning of the devil of compromise, the Secretary of State.
He is not mad enough to let these States run into battle.
