nvoke effort for his deliverance. How can you feel, or even affect, interest in such a caricature of the human form? was the burden of pro-Slavery logic throughout the last generation. Our author met, the traducers of the Black race on their own ground, and vanquished them with their own chosen weapon. Never compromising a principle nor truckling to a prejudice, he turned the laugh on the jesters and set the public to mocking the mockers. While others demonstrated the injustice of manselling, he portrayed its intense meanness, its unspeakable baseness, its monstrous unreason, in colors that even the blind must perceive.

Congressional Globe, pp. 317, 333. A few weeks later Banks and Orth attempted without success to bring forward for debate a resolution for annexing San Domingo. Feb. 1 and 8, 1869. Congressional Globe, pp. 769, 972. Public opinion in the United States was at this time averse to tropical extension, and to the acquisition of islands occupied by a population alien to our own, who could be governed only by methods unknown to the American system. This is seen in the unanimous disfavor which the St. Thomas treaty, negotiated by Mr. Seward, encountered in the Senate in 1868-1869, and the resolution of the House, Nov. 25, 1867, against such purchases; as als
