鈥淭he more you have proved that you were acquainted with452 the intentions of Saxony, the more odious have you rendered its invasion. In order to procure this knowledge, your minister has degraded his character. By means proscribed in society, you have discovered only that the King Elector of Saxony did not love the power of Prussia, that he feared it, and that he even dared to form projects to defend himself against it. Documents which are stolen make against the accuser who produces them, if they do not prove the crime which they impute.鈥?16 360彩票导航杀号 Gradually the secret treaty which allied France, Bavaria, and Prussia, and it was not known how many other minor powers, against Austria, came to light. Two French armies of fifty thousand men each were on the march to act in co-operation with Frederick. England, trembling from fear of the loss of Hanover, dared not move. The Aulic Council at Vienna, in a panic, 鈥渇ell back into their chairs like dead men.鈥?The ruin of Maria Theresa and the fatal dismemberment of Austria seemed inevitable. During the next three days the king suffered much from weakness and a violent cough. He was often heard murmuring prayers, and would say to those around him, 鈥淧ray for me; pray for me.鈥?Several times he pathetically exclaimed, 鈥淟ord, enter not into judgment with thy servant, for in thy sight shall no man living be justified.鈥?A favorite hymn was often sung to him containing the words, 鈥淣aked came I into the world, and naked187 shall I go out of it.鈥?At this passage he repeatedly exclaimed, with much vivacity, as though it were an admirable joke, 鈥淣o, not quite naked; I shall have my uniform on.鈥? 8 Then the angel Michael went down by God's order, took golden rods, as God had commanded him, and brought them to God. FREDERICK AND THE OLD DESSAUER. CHAPTER XXII. THE PEACE OF DRESDEN. 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. The judge charged the jury, that such circumstances might exist, by the excitement and alarm of the neighborhood, as to authorize the killing of a negro without the sanction of a magistrate.
