that alio may have her not a single, hut
million of pound of human flesh. She
stands Ik; lore the world on llmt hond alone!
She tell I lint grent court that her demand ia
nominated in her hond ! She asks judgement,
like tho Jew on her hond, not on iia right or
jiialice. Nut a ahow of the hitler hna she to
luaintnin her claim, nothing hut the simple
existence of tho fton.7, exacted in a lime whi n

hie, and their rnpacion and cold-blooded
crneliiy excite n chill of horror Ihrniigliout
civilization. Iliimnnily has nirenily Hpokcu
in tho language of the Duke, of iliia muii
"A stormy adversary, an Inhuman wretch,
V'ncnpablo of pity, void and empty
From any drnm of mercy."
Yet what iloea the reply to that? When
railed into court, alio Maud up hefnru the I
country with her knife and scales, gloating '
over the miseries of her victim. In viiin iloea !
Immunity tell her that alio hut lend'sl Ihe fash- i
ion of her malice till the lost hour of nrt.atui I
that ahe will then relent; that the miseries j
huddled tni ihe back of her victim are
enough to pluck coumiisseraiion
"From branny bosoms and rough heart of flint,
From atuhborn 'links and Tartars, never

A simple subsliliilion of tho word, "Consti
tution" for "charier," and " country'" for
" r it) 'a," and Sluikspeare would have chruiii
rled slavery's threala in our hull of Congress
for tho Inst four yenr.
The Irienil of freedom does alnvcry bate
with mi intensity equalled only by the Jew's
bate for Antonio. J'lin key of ihut halo is
given by the great poel in tlitit speech w here
rihylock, ivhe'u Antonio had called on bin for
a loan, be says
" I hate him, for ho is a Christian."
Hut this is said to himself, liir neither the
Jew or hlnvery dure to speak tiloud Ihe true
justification of their net The only public
justification that cither gives, is " It i my
humor." So raid Shylock ; so stands Slave
ry before the country, and augwris. liok
at thnt sublime speech of I'urti.t lo the Jew
on the quality of mercy which alio hegs him
to exercise Inwards his victim. Mark well
the close reseinhlauce between thai and the
answer of ihe Juw, nud the arguments nf the
friends of freedom and tho reply of slave
ry " The quality nf mercy is not strained ;
Jt droppcth, as tho gentle r.iin from heaven. -Vpon
the place beneath ; it is twice blessed;
It Messeth him llmt givc,and him Dint takes ;
'Tis mightiest in the inilitu st j it hecomes
The throned monarch hater Hum his crown :

Wherein does set tho fear and drend of
Jlut mercy is above his sceptered sway,
It is enthroned in tho hearts of king,
It is an sttributo to Uod himself;
And earthly power doth show liko O.id's
When mony seasons justice. Therefore,
Though justice be thy pica, consider this,
That in tho courso of justice none of ua
. Bhoiild sco salvation. We do pray for mercy,
- And that samo prayer doth teach us all to
Tho deeds of Mercy."
On the stony bcnrl of Slavery this nppeal
fall like chalf, and with tho words of the
Jew it cries
" My deed's upon my hea t ! I crave tho law,
Tho penalty and forfeit of my bond 1"
And when tlm youthful Judge plead again
that the Jew lie merciful mid let him lour the
bond, be answered
When It Is paid according to tho tenor.
1 stand here on my bond.
How like Slavery! And when the Jew is bid
to have a turgenii by to stop the iiicrchniu'
wounds, lent be bleed lo death, mark Ihe cnl
" Is It so nominated In tho bond " I
Ask 8lavery to ameliorate the condition of
lier victims, ami doe aim not ealoui.lv asK

atill further, when you reply that it if mil,
bill Hint it is good lo do so much fur human
ity, slavery mumbles
I cannot And it; it is not in tho bond."
Thus tniglit we follow the cumpaiison
between this fanciful creation nf Sliiikspcuro
and the H ieculiar it,.tituiion" nf America,
hut we furbear. Olio is fiction, a character
overdrawn ; the other is a reality, with the
half not pictured. All know the sequel nf
the story of the Jew and the merchant. The
bond proved worthless, becuiiae it gave with
the pound of flesh "no jot of blood," and the
Jew could not take the one without the other.
Bo bis bind and bis property were confiscat
ed to the State for bis having conspired

so as almost lo sive Ihe effect of a bower.
There is lo be, contrary lo tho cuslnm, only
a little dancing at Ibis parly, and ihe most of
ihe lime shall be for conversation. An es
pecial god-Bend too, such a company is lo
tho llerlin young people ; for generally Ihe
luws of snciety for tho intercourse of young
gentlemen and ladies are tho strictest possi
ble. F.very gentleman i assumed belore
unvthina is known to the contrary lo Im of,
lax principle. He cannot walk out with n
lady; be cannot nccompany her to a meeting,
a concert, or a theiilre; bo must not see her
at lief own bouse, except in rou.pony wilh
her mother or guardian. Sho never goes in
company without an older relative, and for
her lo invite any young gentleman tn her
house would be the greatest breach of eti
quette. The proper place for intercourse
between the sexea i considered lo lie the
ballroom, and tho few words passed I hero

Hungary wna a very uninteresting country

As the Hungarian was gone, I took up the
defence nf poor Hungary. " 1 was not sure
of Ihe lac Is," I said, " but I hnd n different

as I stopped for breath, by " Volerlllich !" (ex
cellent!) "Iho vowel buve even a clearer
sound tlinu ours, and tho consotinnts are

will never leave me,

I could sny nothing in defense. I told
him party-movements had carried this act
through, which I could nol understand.
Hut as lo the existence of Slavery, he, like
nil foreigners, laliored under a great mistake.
That I, that my countrymen al the North,
had nothing whatover to do with it. We
detested it. We condemned it. Hut we.
in the free States, could not reach it ; we
were not responsible for it. Ann even if
we we7e, it was a momentous and very dif
ficult question, how it was lo be dona awav.
Sudden and complete emancipation would
often be only a curse to the slave. I then
tried to unfold our Constitutional system, tho
peculiar independence of our several States.
They understood easily, and admitted
there were many more difficulties than they
had supposed. Perhaps, unfortunately, there
is nothing Hint a German understands quick
er than the evils of a Confederacy, where
the members have llieir indepent rights.
