The Prince of Conde had been commissioned to fight the valiant chief of the Huguenots, "for that he was their sworn enemy," says the cardinal. In the eyes of fervent Catholics the name of Conde had many wrongs for which to obtain pardon.

So he rushed to avenge the wrongs of the Countess Gertrude; and his father, whose good-natured good sense foresaw that the fiery Robert would raise storms upon his path, happily for his old age he did not foresee the worst, let him go, with his blessing.

"Truly," said the Duke mildly, and with the tone of a meek man much injured; "my dear cousin's death, and the wrongs I have received from Harold, touch me nearly." Then said Fitzosborne, with that philosophy, half grave as became the Scandinavian, half gay as became the Frank: "No man should grieve for what he can help still less for what he cannot help.

At Macchia he remained, brooding on Albanian wrongs, devising remedies, corresponding with foreigners and writing ever writing; consuming his patrimony in the cause of Albania, till the direst poverty dogged his footsteps. I have read some of his Italian works.

The oath which I took when I kissed my rival's brow, demanded another prey when I kissed the child of those nuptials."

Shame for consenting to keep his unearned titles, property, and privileges at the expense of other people; shame for consenting to remain, on any terms, in dishonourable possession of these things, which represented bygone robberies and wrongs inflicted upon the general people of the nation.

In spite of the great disadvantage of having masses of ignorant foreign voters to deal with, and of native black voters, who have been purposely kept in ignorance, we certainly see wrongs gradually righted, and the truth by degrees prevail. Even the one great, exceptional case of New York city has been reached at last; and the very extent of the evil has brought its own cure.

It is a philosophical statement, made not because women suffer, not because slaves suffer, not because of any individual rights or wrongs but as a simple declaration of the fundamental truth of democracy proclaimed by our Revolutionary fathers. I hope the discussion will no longer be continued as to the comparative rights or wrongs of one class or another.
