Eloquent and exalted as he was in intellect, Sargent S. Prentiss was as genial and chivalric as he was gifted and great. No Southern man born was more completely Southern in all his instincts, sentiments, and principles. Like Nathaniel Green, of Rhode Island, who, next to Gen. Washington, was the great captain of the Revolution; like Quitman, of New York, who planted the victorious American standard on the walls of Mexico, like Ripley, of Fort Moultrie, and thousands like them, who have made the South their permanent home, Prentiss was as true and loyal to the South as any of her native-born sons; far more so than the Crittendens, Guthries, Carliles, and others, who are simply Northern men, born in a Southern latitude.

We know not that there was any relationship between the two men, though we should imagine not, for two more dissimilar objects in evsensibility and soul, of the orator and the statesman in the intrepid cavalier and the "gentleman without reproach?" But there is another Prentice, also of New England, editor of the Louisville Journal, who has made himself conspicuous throughout the sectional difficulties of the United States by advocating New England ideas, New England ideas, prejudices, principles and notions, and who is, in his own person, a complete embodiment of the peculiarities of the lowest stratum of Yankeedom in person, manners, intonation and conscience.

The one was a Southern man, born North--a genuine tropic flower that, strangely enough, bloomed into life under the very shadow of the icebergs; but, transplanted to the valley of the Mississippi, fairly outshone in beauty and fragrance all the indigenous flowers of that garden. The greatest orator, undoubtedly, since the days of Patrick Henry, an advocate of magnificent, heaven soaring genius; one who, by a single wave of the magic wand of his fancy, could darken a court-house with clouds of sadness, and bring the rain of gentle pity from eyes unused to weep, and then, as suddenly, by some bright gleam of humor, disperse the gloomy shadows, and make even the falling tears glisten like bright dew-drops in the sunshine.

But when such a representative of this class as Geo. D. Prentice labors for long years, through a leading Southern journal, to convert a proud Southern State, like Kentucky, into a miserable copy of Massachusetts in politics, manners and morals, is it not enough to make the Kentucky patriarchs of a better age rise from their graves and look with awful frowns upon the degenerate race which can permit this vulgar and impudent Yankee interloper to dictate to Kentucky her national policy; to call away Kentucky from her Southern sisterhood; to bid her turn her sword against her own mother Virginia, and even against her own bosom, in the horrid collision of civil war?
