All its acts tend to defeat recon

true of Gen. Grant himself, who

Crittenden was engaged in defend,

for a capital offence. After an
elaborate and powerful defence, he
closed his effort by the following
striking and beautiful allegory:
"When God, in his eternal counsel,
conceived the thought

ministers who wait constantly up
on the throne Justice, Truth. and
Mercy and thus addressed them:
'Shall we make man ?' Then said
Justice; 'O God, make him not,
for he will trample upon thy laws.'
Truth made answer, also : 0 God,
make him not, for he will pollute
thy sanctuaries.' Rut "Mercy, drop

up through her tears, exclaimed:

through the dark paths which he
may have to tread!' Then God
made man, and said to him
man, thou art the child of Mercy
