All dreaded it—all sought to avert it. While the inaugural address was being delivered from this Wife looking nsa Mentone, devoted altogether to saving the Union without war, insurgent agents were in the city seeking to destroy it without war—seeking to dissolve the Union, and divide effects, by negotiation.
