--The Baltimore South
gives the business men of New York, formerly supposed to be our friends, an unmerciful lashing.
We copy the conclusion of the article:
The future reserves for them as it furnished for their prototypes, a Burke, who will, as in the case of their originals, gibbet their names and memories on such an eminence of infamy, that they will never be forgotten; nay, who will send them to the latest posterity ladened with the execrations of mankind for their hideous counsels and suggestions.
This will be historic retribution; a retribution which will make them and their children shunned by man, and outcasts from the sympathies of the human race whom they have already so much abused and still farther propose to outrage.
Their names will be, as has been and still is the case with those of their models, everywhere recognized as the synonymies of crimes and atrocities which, on the bare mention, appal and horrify.
Even the dregs and rinsings of the sinks and kennels of New York, which they are laboriously gathering together in hordes for their merciless warfare, will turn upon them in time as in the French
revolution, with appetites not satiated, but whetted and made more voracious by the innocent blood which they are asked to lap. Their security will prove illusory.
Humanity will not fall to vindicate itself; it will add an additional warning for the future, in the names of those who now in the madness of their rage plot and counsel the wholesale butchery of thousands of their fellow-country men.
