Edward Everett. The furious war speech of Edward Everett on the 4th of July finds a complete refutation in a letter addressed by him to a great "conciliation meeting," held in Faneuil Hall, Boston, February 5th, 1861, just five months before. The following is an extract from that letter: "To expect to hold fifteen States in the Union by force is preposterous. The idea of a civil war, accompanied, as it would be, by a servile insurrection, is too monstrous to be entertained for a moment. If our sister States must leave us, in the name of Heaven, let them go in peace." That is enough! The man who could utter the sentiments of that letter and then make the speech of the 4th of July, cannot respect himself, much less be held in respect by any one else.
