It ia conceded that in small States,
there exists a purer glory, and higher
patriotism, than where a denser popula
tion, bloated in its civilization subverts
tho nobler aspirations of its people, to a
sordid ambition, Hencojtho picture of a
giant horde, conscious of its might, and
greedy for conquest, employing every
means, of skill, of force, andcf treachery, to
overthrow a people, wlvwo pride was
their devotion to principle, and whoso
genius gave wisdom to tke councils of
tho nation. There existed, on the part
the South, a distinctive and prominent
individuality that excited the envy and
hatred of the North. Tentcious of her
rights, phe repelled any invasion of them,
not with braggnrt haughtiness, hut with
appeals to the Constitution.- Sensitive of
her honor, she disdained V> share the
division; of unlawful spoil. Proud of her
traditions, she clung to tho Cvuse of truth
and justice, and, dnriugl to <bfend' them,

Were the cause of our oppressors just,
why should they employ physical force
to sustain it; nay, the very restraints they
seek to impose upon our will and actions,
imply, on the part of those enforcing
them, a blindness to justice, er a care
lessness, to determine what is truth', and
what, is error. - Belief is admitted to be
