Let memory go gleaning over all the fields of the past:—where will she find an instance that Freedom had once proclaimed Slavery dead, where it ever lived again? Some systems of wrong, once sent to their graves, have no resurrection. But these results were only the first steps in the march of the earthquake which had startled the world. Some events are understood just about as well before, as after, they happen. On the subject of African slavery, the voice of no nation could be so potential as America's. When slavery was declared abolished here, it meant that it had received its death-wound in every land. If negro slavery fell dead before our altars where liberty was born, it would carry all like systems with it to a common sepulchr

It came upon them like the trump of doom. It annihilated all hope of intervention by the Powers of Europe, in behalf of the slave-propped rebellion. This they acknowledged themselves. They saw—it was clear enough even to the blind—that the first throne in Europe which took sides with slavery in America, would crumble to dust in the earthquake of a revolution. It banished all idea of the recognition of the Confederacy from the brain of every minister in Europe.

Those who sneered at it as a pompous brutum fulmen, forgot that slavery never was restored, where it had, by supreme authority, once been proclaimed abolished. Liberty takes no such steps backward. Slavery had been abolished by proclamation in San Domingo; it was the attempt to reinstate it, that whelmed that island in blood. Anywhere else, it would have the same effect. Lord Russell ridiculed it because it was levelled only at Slavery over territory beyond Mr. Lincoln's control, while all the States and Districts held by Federal armies were exempt.
