it. is tho universal testimony of : ; "i 1
nvn who have talked wit li tito natural
lenders of the South thal their lan?
gt iago is frank and their conclusions
those of reason. "We ?add tm opin
iou,-as to the relation of the ?St.des to
each other under the Constitution;
we fought for thai opinion: wit would
like to liavo established ii: wo were
beaten in battles, as wo were bea! :>
before battle- by unmix rs: wo accept
the situation frankly, andar? prep :r? d
to be just as loy?] 'and devoted tu the
United States as wc were to the South?
ern Con fodoracy. M isa matter of no
importance whether wo i md reason on
our sid ? or nut ; if is suiiicient that wo
}.:ul not strength."
lt seems wonderful that thorn is no
feeling of hate against us. because
those mon in their hearts believe
themselves to be th" injured party:
but, upon examination, tho wonder
di '.appears. Tho contest bi i ween the
free and slave Slates was. Lo a largo
extent, upon a point of honor; con?
sequently the war partook of tint
na! ure of :i duel. Ill that species of
redrew.; thor< is very rarely any lurk?
ing hostility, even on the part of the
wounded man. t The combat is a tri?
bunal, and its decision i .; accepted as
lina!.
Wo own ourselves TO bo surprised at
tho ported and universal aoijniosocnce
of th.: Southern people, ll is far be?
yond what .we dared to hopo, lt is a
strong proof ol' the supremely practi?
cal nature of the American mind. Ko
repining, no . sullenness, hut a com?
plot . ending behind of the past, and
bi mungal! tho energies to the future.
Tho intelligence of the Southern
?..adors comprehended Ihe situation at
once., and acted upon it instantly.
So much political sagacity, so much
j * raidit * il good senst%, int ve never 1 ?of? TO
boen displayed in similar circum?
stances. The 7V,.es se-'ms to think
that tl i cae phenomena arise from t:
want ol' earliest conviction; but thai
is not the eas '. They arise from ra
j iii !i ty ol' perception. Tin* native ci ti -
wu of v irginia to-day holds us ?irmly
as over that Virginia, and Virginia
alone, is his country; but he sees thai
asa Stat:. in a Federal Union, notas
a sovereign ?State, she must (?vcr
heron ?tor be ct nit ?nt to remain. Such
being the conclusion ol' Iiis comm m
sense, it makes no earthly difference
what lie thinks if the practical r -t-ull
be t!ie same as if ho did not think it.
i :' there wore any more Southern
institutions which tho free Stiles
wanted to s;?bj.. r to their Viii, any
more Southern property which th y

We own, like Sir Peter Teazle, ton
horrible sensation at big phrases, and
exclaim like him, ??Danni your senti?
