Cause and Contrast — an essay on the American Crisis.

By T. W. MacMAHONahon.

Of all the other publications written in exposition of the causes consequences, and philosophy of our Struggle, this work almost by universal accord, is regarded at Unrivalled. It is artistic in style, eloquent throughout, logical in detail, and the most convincing synthetic of the justice of our sacred Cause. In brief, to quotes.

From the Petersburg express.

"To defend the institution of slavery upon all the points on which it has been assailed, to show the physiological and intellectual inferiority of the negro to the Caucasian race and the elevating influences upon the former of a state of servitudes to expose the real authorship and nature of the war into which the two sections of the late Union have been plunged, and thus lay the foundation for its correct history — there are the objects of the publication before us — and the writer hereby the very clever manner in which he has performed his labors, rendered valuable service not only to the cause of Southern literature, but to the cause of truth and justice. His statements are lucid — his logic no less vigorous than accurate — his reflections judicious, and his style pleasing."

Price: one Dollar--sent to any part of the Confederacy upon receipt thereof. Address
