Here are extensive quotes from Editors , commenting on the Turner rebellion.
Comments based on the N.Y. Journal of Commerce, gain the rebuke of G; quoting and embellishing words from that paper: “Look at the humanity, the justice, the principles of these editors! ‘Much as we abhor slavery’ …. Conscious as we are, of its being contrary to the rights of man, and condemned by every precept of the bible….yet ‘there is not a man of us who would not run to the relief of southern tyrants, and violate every principle of rectitude, because they have white skins, and slaughter the slaves, because they have black skins. A fine exhibition of morality! It combines everything odious in cruelty, robbery and murder.”
