Jefferson Davis, walking a tightrope over a large waterfall towards the Capitol building with an American flag on top and a Union solider. On the other side is a man ready to cut the tightrope with an ax. Caption: "This modern Blondin leaves but one impression/Upon the mind of every calm spectator: How easily we circumvent Secession/Must now be clearly seen by this arch-traitor."
