and murdering loyal Tennesseeans, Alabamians, and Georgians? Will Chase and Lincoln be fighting over the future honors of the White House, while the valiant chivalry are hunting down, with bloodhounds, the loyal people of the South? Will such fanatical ranters as Wendell Phillips and Beecher foam and froth about the emancipation proclamation, while thousands are being enslaved by the conscripting minions of Jeff Davis? Will the little one-horse abolition and Republican editors of the North be howling about “copperheads,” while such a woman as Mrs. Davis is robbed of her property, and has to flee for her life? Would it not be more chivalrous, gallant, and patriotic, for such puny creatures to add even their little might toward driving back the insolent foe, which they, with their pen-and-ink batteries, have annihilated a thousand times? God knows, they have done enough to bring this accursed and atrocious war on, and they ought to do a little toward quelling a foe but little less criminal (if any) than themselves. It would be the greatest blessing that ever befell humanity if the abolitionists of the North and the fire-eaters of the South consumed each other in this war, body and soul, so that not an atom of their vile natures would pollute or poison, or be left to corrupt and demoralize, future generations.
