It details, however, the events in which we now, and will continue to, have an active interest. But the present generation must, in the ordinary course of nature, pass into the grave before the curtain shall have fallen upon the last act of this national drama. It will, doubtless, be objected to this work that it is, in part, mere speculation; and it will, further, be urged that it is absurd in presupposing the possibility of a condition of affairs so extreme as that foreshadowed in its pages; but I have only to say, in explanation, that I am not responsible for the result any more than I should be for the product of the multiplication of two given numbers. In the one case, the numbers are submitted to the process of multiplication according to the rules of arithmetic, and a third, or additional number, is produced. It would be folly to quarrel with this result. In the second case, the data of thirty years of observation and experiment have been taken and submitted to a deductive examination - multiplied, as it were, by the hopes, the fears, the experience, the passions and prejudices of men, as well as by the example of history, and I am compelled to abide the result.
