"But they will swell themajority agalnst
us at the North." What stuff? The home.
ly proverb of the stabledoor and stolen
horse, over again. Your onl hope of sa
ving yourselves from the majority against
you at the North, is by conciliating the for.
o.gners there; and now is your time to strike
for a treaty with them, instead of striking
at their vtals. Never did see such a
glorious prospect for a complete overthrow
of abolitionism as there is at this time.
Dtop your Know Nothingism, and we
have all the south, all the foreigners,
the Catholics and democrats against them.
Fire eaters, do not go for dissolving the
Union at this time, I pray you. Do not
go for it, whatever the next Confess may
lo. Pall down all your platforms, unite
on the single plank of anti-Abolitionism;
make no speehes in q give the
majority rope, and then lsbTih return to
their constituents, They will astonish high
heave with their legislation. Be it so.
They cannot hurt you as yet, and if they
stop the wheels of the Government, all the
better for us. Anything before Abolition
rule. That will teach the North wisdom.
No matter what laws they pass, my life on
it they will all be repealed by the next Con
gress, and they will not have a chance of
pssing laws again for tenyoears to come,
if ever. It is a time for a sober preparae
