Jeffreys and Butler. We are indebted to Massachusetts for some of the most agreeable surprises of the war. We had expected nothing from that State but a steady outpouring of fanaticism and fiend
repulsiveness of countenance, the twain might have been brothers.
The only thing honest about Jeffreys, and the same of Butler, was the face, on which God had written the villain in such manifest l ead.
Butler was once as extreme in his profession of love as he now is of hatred of the South, Jeffreys, as long as he looked for professional advancement to the Protestant corporation of London, was the two men. The historian informs us that there was a fiendish exultation in the way in which Jeffreys pronounced sentence on offenders; their weeping and imploring seemed to titillate him voluptuou on in New Orleans.
It is rare that in this world monsters of this class receive their reward.
Jeffreys, though he died in great agency in the Tower, died a natural death, and so may Butler.
