Scarce had he succeed aide by Side with Washington in impelling the Clouds of War from the Antrican coast when we find him burning with patriotic impatience to secure to his native land the same inestimable blessings which he had been so deeply instrumental in securing to us. France had awoke like some vast Giantess from the sleep of Ages and called on her sons to rid her of her chains. At such a Call it was impossible for Lafayette to hesitate and accordingly with a heart glowing with All those Noble sentiments which the society and Converse of 76 Trout have naturally inspired we see him hastening to Aid his imploring country and to blood with his already blushing honors a Lew and brighter Laurel. Soon through his instrumentally the secret fires which had so Long been smouldering unrewarded burst upon the air with an earthquake Shock Tho thrones of her tyrants totter in ruins to the dust her chains scatter in broken fragments to the winds a and France lowering in unshackled majesty a Hove the tombs of her fallen , Waves the Flag of Liberty in Triumph and proclaims to an astonished world her Freedom. But Alaspa people without intelligence and Des dilute of virtuous principles Are unlit for such a heavenly Boon. Who could describe the anguish which wrung the pm it Triol 8 heart when he saw the Beacon to had lit to guide his country to happiness and glory changed into a maddening and destroying flame which swept before it All that was sacred and All that was of Good report in the Bonds which unite society and transformed his once Happy and peaceful country into a wide waste of desolation and horror from which a it Leinon Quot might recoil with Shiine vet even in the darkest hour of that fearful and portentous period the uncorrupted soul of Lafayette stood unshaken. Even Adini St those awful Seucs of contusion and havoc Quot when Quot in the words of by Ron France got drunk on blood to vomit crime Quot we still see firm and Majestic form Calm and unruffled amid surround dog War pointing with the same Unble Ching integrity his bleeding country to the port of safety and abandoning her to her dark and hapless Fate Only when she turned with an ungrateful hand and sought the blood of her Dearest Benefactor. In endeavouring to detract from the glory which this illustrious individual has reaped his enemies have attributed his in the cause of Liberty to an Earnest desire of celebrity and Fame. But such an accusation i take to to Ilie highest encomium which Coulty be pronounced upon its character. That the love of glory was a prominent motive with Lafayette no one perhaps acquainted with his his tory will deny. But the glory for which he aspired was the highest and purest which May Crown a mortal life. The spark which fired his ardent soul to action was hat ii it wanted by the almighty dispenser of tilings in the breast of his noblest Cima ties. It is Ever the inseparable companion of a great and wel4-reguated mind. It is that i Onu Der choir lift up the Anthem of adoration us it utters its thanks to him whose Ever burning Eyo watches Over the destinies of Arian for the a ear Aii it e of the illustrious Lafayette to break the of tyranny and Aid in unrolling a he Banner Ltd Lili Orty.

And Long As there is an altar remaining to her worship Long As there throbs a heart with her sacred fire so Long shall that name be considered holy and its mention a Rouse feelings of gratitude and reverence too pure and fervid Lor , and too deeply engraved upon the soul to be transient or Brief. No splendid mausoleum is needed to Mark the spot where his ashes Are Laid no lofty Monument need Pierce the heavens to Tell of his deeds or his Virtues. I la gris from every Elaine Wili come till the remotest centuries to pay Thimuoi visions around his sepulchre even should it be unmarked by a single Stone a and in the Stu it Candous fabric of iii Kricun institutions there is a Monument of Meciej to his memory More lasting than brass or Marble a Monument a which will perpetuate his name until nature herself shall expire and the Rock ribbed and to canal Nion Tuin i be set tiered in Dusl to the winds.

Throughout All the Vicissitudes of his Long and eventful Lilio we never find him deviating 111 the slightest degree from the strictest Lino of rectitude und never in the least com promising thai Stern and unbending integrity which must Ever Maik the hero. Uhe theras the tenant of the prison or the lord of the Palace whether a a the eloquent Leader of a Unate or the Boll of the Battle in whatever situation he May have been placed we shall Ever find him bearing alike misfortune and Pios Gority with a Calm and in refining fortitude and regulating his Ooton dual in the Insl trying crisis by the purest principle s of virtue.
