It鈥檚 eerie how the lives of Louis Liebenberg and David Carrier spiraled each other for decadeswithout either of them knowing it. Back in the early 鈥?0s, Louis was also an undergraduate incollege and, like David, he was suddenly electrified by an insight into human evolution that fewothers believed in. 7 But after they had been blessed with these tokens, they went back to the cave in which they were born. I am happy to see that morality is rearing its head with advocates for slavery, and that a 鈥渕ost invulnerable moral panoply鈥?is thought to be necessary. I hope it may not prove to be like Mr. Clay鈥檚 compromises. The Southern Press says: 鈥淎s for caricatures of slavery in 鈥楿ncle Tom鈥檚 Cabin鈥?and the 鈥榃hite Slave,鈥?all founded in imaginary circumstances, &c., we consider them highly incendiary. He who undertakes to stir up strife between two individual neighbors, by detraction, is justly regarded, by all men and all moral codes, as a criminal.鈥?Then he quotes the ninth commandment, and adds: 鈥淏ut to bear false witness against whole states, and millions of people, &c., would seem to be a crime as much deeper in turpitude as the mischief is greater and the provocation less.鈥?In the first place, I will put the Southern Press upon proof that Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe has told one falsehood. If she has told truth, it is, indeed, a powerful engine of 鈥渁ssault on slavery,鈥?such as these Northern fanatics have made for the 鈥渓ast twenty years.鈥?The number against whom she offends, in the editor鈥檚 opinion, seems to increase the turpitude of her crime. That is good reasoning! I hope the editor will be brought to feel that wholesale wickedness is worse than single-handed, and is infinitely harder to reach, particularly if of long standing. It gathers boldness and strength when it is sanctioned by the authority of time, and aided by numbers that are interested in supporting it. Such is slavery; and Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe deserves the gratitude of 鈥渟tates and millions of people鈥?for her talented work, in showing it up in its true light. She has advocated truth, justice and humanity, and they will back her efforts. Her work will be read by 鈥渟tates and millions of people;鈥?and when the Southern Press attempts to malign her, by bringing forward her own avowal, 鈥渢hat the subject of slavery had been so painful to her, that she had abstained from conversing on it for several years,鈥?and that, in his opinion, 鈥渋t accounts for the intensity of the venom of her book,鈥?his really envenomed shafts will fall harmless at her feet; for readers will judge for themselves, and be very apt to conclude that more venom comes from the Southern Press than from her. She advocates what is right, and has a straight road, which 鈥渇ew get lost on;鈥?he advocates what is wrong, and has, consequently, to tack, concede, deny, slander, and all sorts of things. 一道本不卡高清专区,一本大道香蕉中文在线,一本道理高清在线播放 The French and the Spanish nations are, by constitution, more impulsive, passionate and poetic, than logical; hence it will be found that while there may be more instances of individual barbarity, as might be expected among impulsive and passionate people, there is in their slave-code more exhibition of humanity. The code of the State of Louisiana contains more really humane provisions, were there any means of enforcing them, than that of any other state in the union. 鈥?Agua?鈥?she asked. 鈥?Agua purificada?鈥?
