Sick of Unionism.
The Petersburg Express
which up to the inauguration of Lincoln
labored for the Union
, says it has become heartily sick of Unionism.
's Inaugural and Cabinet following immediately on the heels of this miserable abortion of the Peace Conference, effectively crushed out all our Union sympathies, and put an end to all our previously cherished feelings against secession.
The Inaugural we have said enough about, and as it is subject more odious
we will let it pass.
The Cabinet was a very fit sequel to the Inaugural — a mixed up, higgledy-piggledy sort of concern — a jumble of contrarieties — an assortment of incongruities — in which we could not discern through a solar microscope a particle of nationality, such as should be possessed by the official advisers of the Chief
Magistrte of a great Republic. "We have, under the influence of the scenes we have witnessed in the last two weeks, in the political amphitheater at Washington
, become heartily sick of Unionism.
There is no living in peace or satisfaction the same Confederacy with the Black Republican
radicals, who, under such leaders as Chandler
, Preston King
, Grow, &c, would quickly convert a Paradise into a howling waste, and who would, if they were one hour in Satan's kingdom below, turn it upside down.
Such men are not fit to live under a free, civilized, decent Government, for they are utterly incapable of appreciating or obeying it. They are fit subjects only for such sovereigns as the King
and the President
of Hayti, Swine have just as good a conception of the real nature and value of pearls, as the Chandler-Lovejoy
wing of Black Republicans have of the real nature and value of our free institutions.
We are totally disgusted with the intolerable and irreclaimable viciousness of these creatures, and are ready to greet a separation from them with our whole heart.
"They have pretty essentially and effectually cured as of Unionism.
We have not another word to say against secession.
Let it go on until it sweeps away every Southern State in its course."
