'After remaining in this.situntiun for Iwii. or three hours, receiving occasionally some heary blows from the ice, an alaim was given lhal we Were close on the rocks. t\'e lill ran npun deck, and beheld a Iremvu-dous clifT frowning directly over the mast-heads of Ihe ship. It was perfectly perpendicular, covered in many places by sheets of ice, and its summit was so high, and shrouded in so thick a fog, that il coulil not be traced frooi ibe deck. We had sc::icely lime to malieaiiy useful exertions, for in n few minutes tbe ship fell bhiadside ngainst ibe cliiV, alone Ihe face of which she was violently hurried by ibe curreiil towards a ridge of broken rocks, which in a 'sbort time wonid have lorn tbe stoniest vessel lo pieces.

In pursuing this course, I will be honest and sincere with Jon, and thus relieve iny own noiiid f^oiri ibose ferlinjj'* which deej) re-flf-clioii and long experience linve, I trust, for some wise and ?ood purpose, crenled. I am Hware, tliui, in declaring; these truths, I must ofieud all the pie|itdice� iv/iicli have been inipliui'ed in your thiniU from infancy ; but the declMraiinn is necessary, f.ir yon cartnot be relieved from the appallinjr dantrer^ wjiich surround yoa ntitil.those errors be removed. The time i�, iudff.l, cottie when your minds must be born again ; wiien your whole character roust ne formed uoew; when Iruib, consistency, find kindness, will take place of error, lt>eoiisi�tency, and malevolence. Many of you, ntiirtiied at the approacbof a change, clifi.i^ to ynar (jrejiidicea, and dfeud the conseqiienties of pniting witli them. These f>'eliii�* are natural, 1 eXpeiieiiced lheii� mice, anil proceeded in niv inveslitjatioiis with fear and irenililiiiff,' A>< I ndvaiiCrd, howeveri bri](hter : proiipevi^ opened, and by n i(devtatin|;  uiientiun tiv nature and In f�ci�, alJ,t)iiit,WB.svfnrbid-(itiiu; disappeared, and ,tlte iixMt S:ilkifi|Cloty ui>d gralifjiiii; rrsulis folluwed. ijavilig Uow pasoed lilts ordenl, and discovered important fcriiefiti for ' my feliuw-creatures, 1 '.ig-*in put luy life iu iny hand, and risk every personal coii�iHeratiot\,' yon may without loss of time be placed in pernii-nent pos.'ession of the.se benelit.s. .So fdr a-i f am permitted to know my.self, this is llie ^o't; motive that now goi-erns my comliirt. The prejudices which have h'-en forced on vo'je minds, solely in consequence of tlir- Ificihties of your birth, will, as I hare before observed, be opposed to those truihs w! -t present to yon. But reflect fjr a moment, and say to yourselves-" Are they not the effects of early impressions Are they not the ima�oidab!e resultof the geograjihicMl circnm-tfinc^'s of our birth and educaiioti ? The constitntinn of of.r nature is such, that in infancy and childliond imy notii^f, however absurd yud contraiy to imturr. niay be forced upon us, as is evident in nil the great districts into which Ihe world is divided. It is therefore possible Ihnt we and our fnrefnihers may have been trained in error, nnd tHOsjht even I.t call good, evil-and evil, good. Let ns ihejj e^idvj-vciur to lay aside, for a sea.s-jn at l>-:i>t, tlie�e eii.iy impressions, nnd, a.s far as they v.ill ;illr,w n.*, exi-raine carefully and attentively wlmt tiiis man iu-i to say and to offer to ns, fje bus succeeded in m-'ikiiig a large population around liinrmucli better and happier than has yet been accnnipli.slied by ai:v of his more powerful competitors, �Jio have acted on those principles which we have been taught lo consider risilt. He lias pursued another course, put other principles into action, and by the totimmiy nf nil eye-witnesses, has produced a betler conrlnci and greater happiness iban can be discovered in tin-same class of people elsewhere. Me a^ks notbiiiK from us ; he seeks no personal advaiita^'e of any kind i from the very principles which he profess-* he can claim no merit, and he refuses to accept reward ; yet he freely devotes his tinjp, exjiemls his fortune, and encounters opprobriinri, to promolr-what he appears confcientiou.slv to believe is calculated to make u� happy. Let ns then give dim a fair and patient hearing. He.is only one against all the millions in the world who have been tHUi�lit from infancy to oppose his notions. If he is riglii, and we are all in error, good, not evil, will en-'ue ; while a full investigation and ii of ins pl-iiis, if they really are visionary und ini|iractic:i-hle, or not beneficial, will bi-iii;; tlieni into coii-templ, and speeriilj' consitrn them to oblivion." Such to me seems the language of reason. In ynur coq! moments the most intelligent nf ynn will adopt it ; and to ihe reflecting and iiUellig>-nt ( now address myself. You see those bnniK whicli heretofore held society together, lonseniiig in every directiou. Learning, because it has been fnUe knowledge, weahh and titles, have lost llieir hold on Ihe imaginations of men, for th-y have filled to yive them happiness. The moral, political, .-ind commercial siysteras of the civilis-J part of the world, are hourly sinking into disrepute ; they artr found to produce far more evil than good, and with one accord cry out that " something must be done." Vou look at each olher for thM ".loinelhiiig" to remove the public distress, while each is conscious that whatever has been nfl'ered by the dilferent piriies of which the population is composed, is (pine unequal to meet thecrisis at whii h we are arriieM. Hut why are all ilie old systems of the woild falling into discredit? Is it upon recmd lliat ;iny truih. when once established, ever fell into disgrace ? Such a result would be cnnfr-^ry lo llie known laws (if nature. It is therefore evident lluit liiere is some funrlumental error in Ihese old systems, and lhat the " something" wanted to relieve us from the difiiculties which hem ns in on every side, is lo remove this error, that mankind tnay P".i"y 'lie end-le.ss benefits which science and experience now otl'er. Vou are in search of relief froin wide-spread and alarming distress. Can it be obtained without tnen-tsl freedom, and on abundance of all the necessaries of life ? Have the old systeips given these ? Can they permitlhem to be given.' No, for they could not exist with them, i:f-4ve nnv parties ii real interest in permanently sup[)ortiiitj ihese old systems.? None whatever. Thfy cannot i;ive to tlie most favoured individual trained uiuier their influence a tithe of the benelit.s wliicli the leaft favoured would enjoy, if we would honesily make use of those advantages which Providence has placed at our disposal. Il is on this ground I a�k ymi not to ppr'ist in your present headlong, danoerm-is course, but to Bland still and reflect on the piiiiciples upon which your conduct proceeds, and you cannot ftil to discover that yon are all equally in error, and are acting in direct opposition to yonr piesent interests and future well being. It can hardly be necessary to state, that I am no advocate K<ir i:reni;itiiie chan terest in bringing it about as any of the indivi.-duils whom they govern, Bul he (ore they can be. expected to act cordially in -a cause op^>08led "10 all -.' their early prejudices and local views; it i� rw�� nc�ti*f 111.1; errors 00 which the present practices of �ociietj�!h*ve' : been formed, and of the'benefits wbirclfr l4wyp�li*-.: lie will derive iVoni the i.ntrodHC�ionof-'e*h* tilts*- � snres, founded on j)Tinrip\e� eapabVe'tif'betiriili^^'^he Jtest of evefy investigatioir^ Kiiowirig'.tfiBt''4�flj:i�i- r-Kor ConitkiibM. fee lastpage.'j "^'"' *
