Butler, a native of Troy, N.Y., was then chaplain for the U.S. Senate and in reading here between the lines one finds much in the way of sectional conciliation in the wake of the Compromise of 1850 that had been pushed through the Senate in September. Drawing on the example of Israel and Judah, Butler points to the expected violence a Civil War would unleash on America.
