After matins the Mother Superior addressed about two hundred young women in the Assembly Hall in the following words: The picture which Mrs. Stowe has drawn of slavery as an institution is anything but favorable. She has illustrated the frightful cruelty and oppression that must result from a law which gives to one class of society almost absolute and irresponsible power over another. Yet the very machinery she has employed for this purpose shows that all who are parties to the system are not necessarily culpable. It is a high virtue in St. Clare to purchase Uncle Tom. He is actuated by no selfish or improper motive. Moved by a desire to gratify his daughter, and prompted by his own humane feelings, he purchases a slave, in order to rescue him from a hard fate on the plantations. If he had not been a slave-holder before, it was now his duty to become one. This, I think, is the moral to be drawn from the story of St. Clare, and the South have a right to claim the authority of Mrs. Stowe in defence of slave-holding, to this extent. ERNEST now went home and occupied himself till luncheon with studying Dean Alford鈥檚 notes upon the various Evangelistic records of the Resurrection, doing as Mr. Shaw had told him, and trying to find out, not that they were all accurate, but whether they were all accurate or no. He did not care which result he should arrive at, but he was resolved that he would reach one or the other. When he had finished Dean Alford鈥檚 notes he found them come to this, namely, that no one yet had succeeded in bringing the four accounts into tolerable harmony with each other, and that the Dean, seeing no chance of succeeding better than his predecessors had done, recommended that the whole story should be taken on trust 鈥?and this Ernest was not prepared to do. 鈥淪aint Lazare?鈥? Dear Sir: Your letter of the 6th inst., asking my opinion of 鈥淯ncle Tom鈥檚 Cabin,鈥?has been received; and there being no reason why I should withhold it, unless it be the fear of public opinion (your object being, as I understand, the publication of my reply), I proceed to give it in some detail. Seated on a log, dangling his legs, was the diminutive Frenchman, with coarse gray homespun shirt and knitted tuque drawn down to his ears, which stuck out almost at right angles from the head. He glanced at the Governor, and then at the red-coated officers, with evident dread and apprehension. 天天色,天天干,天天操,天天射,天天好逼网,天天色综合网 Charlotte is as clever as ever, and sometimes asks Ernest to come and stay with her and her husband near Dover, I suppose because she knows that the invitation will not be agreeable to him. There is a de haut en bas tone in all her letters; it is rather hard to lay one鈥檚 finger upon it, but Ernest never gets a letter from her without feeling that he is being written to by one who has had direct communication with an angel. 鈥淲hat an awful creature,鈥?he once said to me, 鈥渢hat angel must have been if it had anything to do with making Charlotte what she is.鈥? "Yes," he replied; "but how could you have heard it so soon?" 鈥淚 won鈥檛 be silent,鈥?laughed F茅lise rebelliously. 鈥淐鈥檈st une vieille pimb猫che, and I鈥檓 not going to leave you to her. I don鈥檛 want to leave you. I don鈥檛 want to marry.鈥?
