But I think of all the Christian denominations in the United States the Catholics are the last the Southern people should join in attempting to put under the ban of civil proscription. For as a church they have never warred against us or our peculiar institutions. No man can say as much of the New England Baptists, Presbyterians or Methodists: the long role of abolition petitions with which Congress has been so excited and agitated for years past come not from the Catholics; their pulpits in the North are not desecrated every Sabbath with anathemas against slavery. Alexander H. Stephens

He could no longer separate the wife and the husband to suit the convenience or interest of the purchaser; no matter how advantageous might be the terms offered. Hence; all the marriages that could ever be allowed them, would be a mere contract, violable at the master's pleasure. Their present quasi marriages are continually thus voided. They are, in this way, brought to consider their matrimonial alliances as a thing not binding, and they act accordingly. We are then assured by the most unquestionable testimony that licentiousness is the necessary result of our system Presbyterian Church
