Excerpt from Southern Institutes; Or an Inquiry Into the Origin and Early Prevalence of Slavery and the Slave-Trade: With an Analysis of the Laws, History, and Government of the Institution in the Principal Nations, Ancient and Modern, From the Earliest Ages Down to the Present Time

In presenting a treatise of this character to the public, it may not be improper to state the motives which have actuated the author, and the causes that have led to its production.

No one inured to the institutions, habits, manners, and customs of the South, can mingle to any considerable extent in social circles in portions of the free States, without coming in collision with sentiments and feelings that find no sympathy in his own heart - no welcome response in his own bosom. Repeated altercations of this character, within the last few years, have convinced him of the gross ignorance and misconception of the true spirit of our institutions, and of the facts of their details, that pervade public opinion generally in those sections of the Union.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Southern Institutes; Or an Inquiry Into the Origin and Early Prevalence of Slavery and the Slave-Trade: With an Analysis of the Laws, History, and Government of the Institution in the Principal Nations, Ancient and Modern, From the Earliest Ages Down to the Present Time IT is essentially the highest genius of the statesman and political philosopher to place human institutions and human progress upon their true foundation. Government, laws, and the organic principles of society owe their perpetuity and ad vancement to the true theory of their existence. History is his only measure of human experience; and the experience of the past can alone light the dark pathway of the future. The smoke and din of turmoil and commotion may for a while over shadow its radiance, but to the undeviating eye of philosophy and truth, it gradually reveals its twilight beams far in the dim distance, and they brighten upon his view like constellations in the celestial fields upon the steadfast gaze Of the astronomer. The eye of the true statesman and political philosopher is the eye of faith; it pierces the dim war-clouds Of contending factions, penetrating into regions of pure truth, into higher and more ample fields of being, and then basks in balmy daylight as calm and peaceful as summer sunshine, after the angry thunder-storm has spent its fury and passed away. The theory of the South has seldom yet been founded in truth, nor the philosophy of her institutions put upon its true ground.
