PADEN T1 retorted, "I scorn your quarter !" At that moment there; was not a senator in that Congress who was not proud to have such a man for fellow countryman. It was one and the only time that Stephen A. Douglas realized that he! had meet his master. In that same theatre, years later, George F. Hoar of Massachusetts rose and delivered himself of a philippic address to the southern chieftain then a man without citizenship. Mr. Lamar answered: "When Prometheus was chained to the rock, it was the vulture and not i . eagle, that buried its cruel beak in his vitals and tore a h' tortured them." 1 It was, perhaps, the finest retort in the parliamentary history, and it was effective, too, for since that day, now a quarter of a century agone, no scamp :f a demagogue in American Senate has uttered in publij a derogatory of the character of the man who stood for all the south and stood for it four years of awful trial. Does this here Pittsburg editor know em igh history to realize that Jefferson Davis spilled his blood in stricken field for the American flag? I srow not. Does he know that it was a charge made by Jefferson Davis at the head of his regiment that captured the Bishop's Palace brave soldier, an adversary: who was then a fallen chief tain. The tribe of jackal, however is not quite extinct in our fair land, it seems. Whether traitor or patriot. Jefferson Davis was in his person the south. His farewell speech to the Senate when he withdrew from that body in 1861 will be held'by the future Americans of the north, as well as the south, fit companion piece of noble patriotism with Lincoln's Gettys burg oration. You can depend on that. It ought to be against the law of the statute, as well as against the canons of good taste and contrary to the precepts of loyal patriotism, for any man to abuse JfT Davis unless that man had shed as much blood on stricken field of battle as came from the veins of Jeff D ivis in de fense of the Star Spangle Banner.
