It is coming-- it must come -- it will come. The difficult labor of bolstering up the present effete government will soon be too expensive to the Western nations, and Europe will find it necessary to divide the dominions of the Sultan, and the haughty Turk will have a Christian for his lord and master, and Christians for governors, magistrates, and police-officers. Then the terrible higher law of which we have spoken will have no power in the land.
Harper's finally wakes up and leverages its archives -- this from 1856. Such a good idea I'm almost tempted to pay them for the print ed. But then I'd have to read it.
