The civilized world will find, too late, that its philanthropy has been all false, and its religion all wrong on this subject; and the people of the United States will find that, under the pretence of “saving the life of the nation, and upholding the old flag,” they have surrendered their own liberties into the hands of that worst of all tyrants, a body of senseless fanatics.
