Neri (Texas, United States) (search for this): chapter 126
They may turn away wrath; but what is the wrath of man? This is no time to abandon any advantage in the argument. Senators sometimes announce that they resist Slavery on political grounds only, and remind us that they say nothing of the moral question. This is wrong. Slavery must be resisted not only on political grounds, but on all other grounds, whether social, economical, or moral. Ours is no holiday contest; nor is it any strife of rival factions, of White and Red Roses, of theatric Neri and Bianchi; but it is a solemn battle between Right and Wrong, between Good and Evil. Such a battle cannot be fought with rosewater. There is austere work to be done, and Freedom cannot consent to fling away any of her weapons. If I were disposed to shrink from this discussion, the boundless assumptions made by Senators on the other side would not allow me.

Following Mr. Calhoun, who pronounced Slavery the most solid and durable foundation on which to rear free and stable political institutions, and Mr. McDuffie, who did not shrink from calling it the corner-stone of our republican edifice, the Senator from South Carolina [Mr. Hammond] insists that its frame of society is the best in the world; and his colleague [Mr. Chesnut] takes up the strain. One Senator from Mississippi [Mr. Jefferson Davis] adds, that Slablack,—a word which, so far as the slave is concerned, he changes, on a subsequent day, to elevating, assuming still that it is ennobling to the whites,—which is simply a new version of the old assumption, by Mr. McDuffie, of South Carolina, that the institution of Domestic Slavery supersedes the necessity of an order of nobil
