Excerpt from Sir Theodore Broughton, Vol. 2 of 3: Or, Laurel Water
Heaven have mercy upon the poor man who would even dream of such a thing! Not a bakers cur with a tin kettle tied to his tail would be so hooted, pelted, kicked, beaten, and pursued as he would be.
The Hebrew sage declared, there was nothing new under the sun; but since his days, and even since the days of the English sage whom I have mentioned, a new thing has arisen, and that a mighty and ever-increasing power.
The daily and weekly press, the mightiest engine for good or evil that ever was invented by the prolific brain of man, possesses - neither unreasonably nor unjustly do I mean to say - an amount of power which any individual might as well attempt to contend with, as an infant to stop a locomotive with a straw.
