ecaying from thinness of blood and dryness of system, and that the only certain way to elevate it is to engraft upon the negro stock. She speaks in rapturous terms of the rich African blood which is thus to be infused into the dull veins of the Yankees, regenerating and reinvigorating all the energies of the old race, and imparting new vigor and new energy, to which it was a stranger before. Nor does she labor alone in this "sacred" cause. She is supported by one Tilton, the associate of Beecher in the Independent, who maintained in an oration delivered in the presence of many hundred women, that "it was good for white women to marry black men, and that the "passional" and "emotional" nature of the blacks "was needed to improve the white race. " That the admixture of negro blood would vastly improve the Yankee race cannot be doubted; but we deny that it would improve any other race. All these things are beastly to the last degree, or which amounts to the same thing, they are genu
visit the earth and receive the due reward of their deeds in beholding the final result of their notable system for improving the morals, religion, and politics of mankind. It is not for us to complain of the great loss which mankind at large must suffer from the deprivation of Yankees.Three years of self denial have enabled us to dispense with even such a luxury as their companionship. We find that, by dint of manly fortitude and abstemiousness, we can manage to exist without Harper, Beecher, Greeley, Everett, or any of their works. But how can Yankeedom give itself up in this wholesale suicide, immolate the memory of its ancestry, and slaughter that " manifest destiny" which was to appropriate the whole continent of America to the Yankee race ? The Confederacy can look with philosophical composure upon this tragical performance. We are not to be astonished at this time of day at any exhibition which Yankees may make. After all the atrocities and diablerie which for thr
cently been in New York, writes: The Yankees do not hesitate to admit the superiority of our Generals over their own. After the idol of the hour, (it is Grant now,) they award the merit of great generalship to Lee. European military critics always speak of Lee as the ablest soldier developed by the war on either side, and so far without his equal in the present armies of the old world. Stone wall Jackson commanded the admiration of the Yankees as well as of the rest of mankind. Even Beecher made him the subject of an elaborate enology. Beauregard stands high with the Yankees for his defence of Charleston and his admirable retreat from Corinth. The other Confederate Generals best known, and whose merits are handsomely acknowledged, are Joe Johnston, Longstreet, Magruder, Hardee, and Polk Portraits of all these officers can readily be obtained at the bookstores in New York and Boston. At Frederick's show windows on Broadway, are displayed two splendid photographs, one of Lee
nded that the Abolition party did not always accord to the Republican party all that justice demands. He maintained that, in its attitude towards "the slave power," it gave a sign of progress which Abolitionists had no cause to lament.--"I hope," he said, "to see many of them take their position under the banner of disunion. I have said, again and again, that in proportion to the growth of disunionism will be the growth of Republicanism or Freesoilism." On the 16th January, 1855, Rev. Mr. Beecher advocated a fight, for the purpose of settling the question between North and South. He believed that the Sharpe rifle was truly moral agency. Mr. W. O. Duval said: "I sincerely hope a civil war may soon burst upon the country. I want to see American slavery abolished in my time." "When the time arrives for the streets of our cities to run with blood to the horses' bridles, if the writer of this be living, there will be one heart to rejoice at the retributive justice of Heaven."
nspired, it will awe as a revelation from above! "No wonder," it exclaims, "the President was lifted above the level on which political rulers usually stand, and felt himself in the very presence of the awful mystery of Providence. Well may the President call the people, as it were, into the Court of the King of Kings, and show them their accountability and their duty towards Him. With these views, it is, of course, the duty of the hierarchy to guide the people politically; and we see that Beecher proposes to organize future campaigns upon this basis. He proposes to get rid of the old theologic trammels; and in a recent sermon, in which he announced his determination to devote himself more to polities, he alluded to "the sacredness of days and ordinances, such as Sunday, fast days, peculiar modes of baptism, and so on, as of use simply to educate and assist Christians in their several lines of spiritual development, while there is, and should be, no intelligent recognition of sacre
