A Time of justice will Come We are conscious of the odium that rests upon us. We feel thiat we are wronged; but we are not impatient for the righting of our wrongs. We bide our time. The men that shall come after us, will do us justice. The present generation of America cannot judge righteous judgment, in the case of the uncom-promising friends of freedom, religion, and law. They are so debauched and blinded by slavery, and by the perverse and low ideas of freedom, religion, and law, which it engenders, that they call evil good, and good evil; put darkness for light, and light for dark-ness ; put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter. They have been living out the lie of slavery so long, and have been, thereby, deadening their consciences so long, as to be now well nigh incapable of perceiving the wide and everlasting distinctions between truth and falsehood.
