an 1b0 soon in the old man now bent

strong, however, is, strange to say)
the spirit of contradiction, as display.
ed in the senseless perversity of chil

of grown people. lan, in society,
moves constantly under the influence
of theso two tendencies, and shapes
his Conduct as they direct.
Contradiction is an ciffort of the
liind. It is the first effort of thought,
rejecting error or its . appoarances.
I-. spirit is found most vigorous in
meII of great mental capacity, but not
of the highest geius, and also in

Tihe Late War-A Ploody Exchange
Ideasi No 3.
The idea for which the South
fought, then, we hold, to have been
the iindestructibility of the States;
thte idea foi' which the North fought
was the perpoetuity' of the Union.
The result of' the war will be an ex
'-/urngea of these two ideas. Tholi South
hams accepjted the idea for which (lhe
Northi fought TPhe Nor'th, with the
election of Seymour and. Bliair, or if
niot, thion, after another convulsion
originatinig at tho Nor'th itself, wvill
accept (lie inidestructibility of the
States. And wheon these two p)rinci
ples8, apparently as opposite and in
3onmSistent with one another as thto
sentt'ifugal and contripetal forces of
Ito earth, shall have been settled
>eyond dispute, wo will have pro
cross and peace.
To prove our view, lot us recur to
facts, The majoeity of the Southern
people vere disposed to wait for the
overt act on the part of Lincoln, nor
did thly believe in "the girdle of fire'
theo:y, or the "ringing of the tree"
theory, as to fren and slave labor, but
they woro unanimous on the doctrino
of States Righ1s, and the plain inton
tion to cooroo the States united the
South. The removals of Fremont
and 11untor, because of their emanoi,
pation orders, and the substittion of
other commanders in their place, and
the Andrew Johnston resolutions of.
fered and unanimously adopted in the
United States Senate, on the day af
ter the battle of Mnassas, prove, that
the North o.teroed the fight, not to
abolisl slavery, but to perpetuate the
U nt ion.
lroe labor and slave labor, i is
true, entered largely as eleliemits an11d
occasions of the war. ThIe South )e
ing inl a minority, aid believing the
State institutiol of slavery threatened,
becamo very jealous of States Iights.
'The disputo would in time have been
settlei, however, but for the plain
choico- of force as the arbiter on tihe
partlof the Radical party-thc greatest
blund or in statesmanship upon - the
record of history.
And our Statesmen also blundered
ininensely in this very respect, that
they posponed the issue of States
Rights, and made it upon th ques.
tion of slavery, a sect ioial issue. Mr.
Rhett was right, in urging the supe
ror wisdom of testing the question
upon the issue of taxation, and of- do
ing so bfore the Northern States be
came stronger than the Southern by
three to one in numbers, and double
that ratio by the development of
every variety of resources.
This war, however, like some others
with all of i(s Cnities, has lad a
tendenvy to promote peee, jist as
litigation has settled principles of
law and rules of procedure. As liti
gation gradually wins region after re
gion from the domin ion of doubt, so
that to question certain rights in civil
ized society which have been decided
again and again, would be considered
by sober men as proof of idiocy or
lunaCy, just so, war and treaties, and
modes of thought resulting from war,
have settled, beyond dispute, certain
principles of publie justice for thle rega
lation of nations in their intercourse
with each other. The numitiber of
questions in private business that still
admit of doubt, however, is so great
and the number of complicated rela.
tions that will arise with the extenl
sion and variety of business under
new and untried forms, is almost so
infinite, that litigation, at least in the
form of arbitration, can never coMie to
a close. And the number of settled
principles of public law arc so few,
and the nuumber of queOst ions affect inn
the interests of nat ions that ar~e still
in doubt arc so many, that it is hope
less to look for an end of war. For as
it is d ishionorable coward ice in an in
dlividual to yield a doubtful point t(
threats or force, before his judgmnent
is assured that it is right to do so
so nations would soon sink into con
tempt and degration, that would no'
light uipon a reaison-ablo doubt, ther<
being no common arbiter botweer
them. Let us trust, hrowever., that n<
second civil convulsion will disturl
the American Union. Let us hiopt
that we will learn in peace theO les
sons that have been written in blood(.
