es could not have sustained the war! They have not driven the mercantile fleets of Yankeedom from the ocean, and compelled Yankee merchants all to ship in neutral bottoms! Assuredly, a people who could do all this have not been enervated by slavery or anything else. And Seward says slavery is enervating. It follows, therefore, that they did not do all these things. Perhaps they were conquered in sixty days, as Seward said they would be. Seward endeavors to throw the whole odium of Sheridan's and Sherman's wanton ravages upon the subjects of Great Britain. He says: "Nor will any portion of the American people" (meaning still the Yankees) "be disposed to regard the sum thus ostentatiously offered for the relief of the captured insurgents as a too generous equivalent for the devastation and desolation which a civil war, promoted and protracted by British subjects, has spread throughout the States, which before were eminently prosperous and happy." There is some truth in this.
