      "WE ARE THREATENED WITH COPPERHEAD REBELLION" (CIVIL WAR.) GREELEY, HORACE.

      ". . . Don't despair of the Union yet, though the skies are dark. We are threatened with Copperhead Rebellion and Foreign Intervention, and we are dying of enormous debt and heavy taxation. But I guess we shall weather the point though I have often despaired of it."
