If an artillery ufticcr throws shell after

repl ieed by Home one wild a heller ee ami

opinion, to meitn to hit ia quite sutlicieui ;
and if Jim have a certain grand imhfli.'rctire
as to whether you hit or not, you may count
on public applitusc.'
' A man need Im no less militant, aa the
soldier of facta, tlinn na llm agent of swords.
Hut the arena of argument needs discipline
no less than Hint of arms. Il is this which
the anti-shivery party seem to me not only
to overlook, Imt to d.-xpi. They do not
put their valor to dull. Neither on the field
nor the phillbrm has courage any Inherent
enpacity of taking rare of itself.'
Tim w riter then proceed to lake n quota
lion from Mr. Emkhsom, tlio lallcr mrl of
which I will read:
' Let us withhold every reproachful, and, if
we can, every indignant remark. In thia

The critic takes exception to Mr. Garri
son's approval of the deuuiici.ilory latigungu
in Hincli LMiiiet u t-onnell ruinikuil the gi

' When Win. Llnyd Garrison praises Ihn

ami who win nothing.' If the lenders of

last fifty years have been lostn, I shotihl be
curious to know whnt partv, in lost otiiu-
ion, have won ? My Lord Derby ami bis
friends seem to think Democracy baa made
and ia making dangerous headway. If the
men who, hy popular agitation, outside of

chy Parliamentary Reform, nod the Alsdilion
of the Test Acts, of high Post Hntea, of
Catholic Disiihility, of Negro Hlavery ami

would he hard to any whnt winning is. If
the men who without Him ballot, made Peel

whnt kind of a thing would success he?

cause lay ns much on the surface na thosu I

His remarks upon the nuti-shivcry move
inenl arc, however, equally inaccurate. I
claim, before yon who know the true state
of tht: eiise, I claim lor the ntiti-slavery
