Excerpt from African Colonization, Its Progress and Prospects: Addresses Delivered by William H. Allen, L. L. D., And John P. Crozer, Esq., At the Anniversary Meeting of the Pennsylvania Colonization Society, Held in Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church, Philadelphia, October 25, 1853 But no prophet saw the portent, or if some Cassandra uttered a voice of warning, her words passed by unheeded, as the ravings of insanity. Greed of gold blinded all eyes and deafened all ears. Now see the gold which we have sacrificed so much to gain - where is it? Melting from our grasp like ice in'a furnace; cast into cannon and mortars; hammered into muskets and riﬂes; ﬂoating off and' Sinking in iron'clad monitors and monsters; hurrying away in horses and harness and the swift wheels of artillery; devoured by armies which consume every thing and produce nothing; springing into gas in the explosion of gunpowder; and strewed in deadly fragments by the bursting of bomb-shells. Go, it must; five hundred millions a year in the North, and as much more in the South, by a law of moral compensation which no man nor nation can evade, till every dollar gathered by wrong shall be scattered to the winds, or drunk like the dust of Aaron's golden calf in the bitter cup of retribution. Let it go; and when it is gone, and the cup drained to the dregs, we shall learn that public virtue, true manliness, the upright administration of the laws, the love of man and the fear of God, are worth more than all the wealth that sinews bought and sold have ever earned.
