Excerpt from Rebel Brag and British Bluster: A Record of Unfulfilled Prophecies, Baffled Schemes, and Disappointed Hopes, With Echoes of Very Insignificant Thunder; Very Pleasant to Read and Instructive to All Who Are Capable of Learning It must t be thought that the following pages are the fruit of a search through the British journals for articles upon our late civil war. Life is too short for such an employment of time without prospect of much greater benefit, public and private, than that task could accomplish, however effectually performed. The articles, extracts from which are here reprinted were, with many others, cut out and laid aside in the course of the current perusal of British journals during the war, as interesting utterances of opinion and feeling, to which there would probably arise some occasion for reference. This selection from and arrangement of these articles is offered as a curious study of the attitude, temper, and purposes of the largest and most influential part of a great and enlightened nation in regard to one of the most important political movements of modern times.
