his brow which are SD conspicuous iu

his contemporaries are likely to b
criticised, when he adroitly and pli
antly turns th* discussion into inoffen
sive channels. He is yet the sam?
positive man in all his couv?ctiou
and purposes'that m ade him the lead
er of a caus?less rebellion. ? He well
understands that he cast the die fir
empire or for failure that must malte
him alien to the country and the world,
aid that he lost ; and he knows that
he is to day the" mest powerless of ail
men in tKe land to retrieve thc for
tunes of those who ioiiowf.d him to
bereavement and sacrifice. He reads
aright the inexorable judgment that
makes him execrated for the Confed
eracy, while his equally guilty Bubor
d nates have been welcomed to thc
fitted calf. His vice-president who
followed thc slave empire alar oil
when doubt and darklier gathered
about it, made haste to scramble over
the ruins of the Confederacy and re
gain the seat in Washington from
which he seceded with Davis tc aid
ir- guiding rebclliou. Two of his un
noted warriors have sat in l?epubli
