Something to think of.
The proud spirit of the South
illy bears the contemplation of the rule of Black Republicanism.
No wonder that a true-hearted Virginian like Judge Robertson
should pray Heaven to avert the humiliation of his passing under the yoke of Abraham Lincoln
! Not the least revolting relation in which we may regard his power is that of foreign affairs.--Imagine all the officers, Ambassadorial and Consular, throughout the world, filled with men who would not only not say one word in vindication of the South
from the aspersions constantly indulged towards it, but who would, on the contrary, unite with our libelers in calumniating it. To be under the necessity of calling upon such men to extend to us the assistance of their official characters in foreign lands, would be a deep mortification.
How would an honorable Southern gentleman ask the official aid of Seward
, or Summer, or Doolittle
, or Burlingame
, or of that Marat of the American
--Would he not rather appeal to the generosity and courtesy of the Representatives
, of France
, or Russia
, or any other country?
Would he not endure the sufferings of imprisonment rather than solicit a release at the hands of any one of these detestable men?
We believe he would.
Even though the South
has the acknowledgment of all her rights, and the Union
is restored — yet if Lincoln
is installed, the four years of his rule will be four years of humiliation to the South
