Eloquent detail of the wrongs and injuries which our forefathers had to endure it excites a livelier sense of the privileges and blessings which we enjoy and pledges our eternal gratitude to the memory of those heroes and sages by whose devoted exertions we Are enabled to Hail the return of this auspicious morn and to contemplate with exultation the Date of our National existence our Liberty and our happiness. What unutterable feelings of honest grat Slatton must throb within the bosom of every american when he casts his eyes abroad into our infant coup try when he considers her present enviable and unparalleled conditions when he sees her styled and styled truly the Home of the oppress cd the Asylum of the exile the Sanctuary of civil and religious Liberty. Should a being from some unknown Region come among us a being entirely unacquainted with the history of the world and should we unfold to his consideration the present condition of every civilized country what would naturally be his opinion relative to the Anterior history of America wrap in admiration he would exclaim America has always been the favored child of the creator she has enjoyed his unchanging smile of Beneficence Ever since she sprung into existence a whilst other nations Heve been grovelling in the abyss of barbarism and ignorance she has been marching proudly Onward beneath the Hinners of truth and knowledge whilst the wayward have been wandering in the mazes incidental to childhood she has been enjoying All the blessings of maturity of years of unerring in deviating Wisdom. Whilst they have been crushed by the Yoke of tyranny she has basked in the brightest and purest rays of uncontaminated and Sapient policy. Divine Providence must have breathed upon the Bud of american greatness at the very instant of the creation and caused it to burst Forth immediately into the Bloom of perfection whilst the prospects of the rest of the world exposed to All the storms of passion and vice were withered in their embryo leaving nothing behind them but the Mournful traces of a once promising celebrity. Such would be the exclamations of this being but such Are not ours. We know that our country is still in her infancy a we know that we need not search amongst the creations and records of the ancient poet and historian to discover from what divinity of fable we May he said to deduce our origin. No we have but a Short Vista of years to look through to have fully arrayed before our sight our country a birth her childhood a her wrongs and her glory. Four Hundred years have not elapsed since the enterprising Genius of a Columbus astonished the world by the information that they had been living in perfect ignorance of one of the greatest fairest and most magnificent portions of the Globe. Rut what was the condition of America when discovered by Columbus the same Sun indeed Rolls Over our Heads tho same mountains lift their hoary brows to heaven the same cataracts fling around their deafening Thunder the same Rivers sweep their generous tribute to the Ocean but All else How changed where the Mellow soil now yields its bounteous increase to the Industry of the Freeman where our literary and scientific institutions Rise in Youthful Pride where the monuments of our country a Lama Tower magnificently towards the skies the Indian Hunter then pursued the panting Deere the Indian hero in All his glory yelled Forth the War whoops the peaceful Blaze of the wigwam smiled on the Indian mothers and their children and the Council fire gleamed on the sullen brow of Many a War worn chief. Rut the Indian sunk in darkness and out ancestors Rose in glory the Forest scattered its honors before their Industry and the Genius of Liberty exulting in the opening scene w winged her flight from the madness of Europe and spread her Balmy pinions Over the promising regions of the West our fathers rejoiced in her Shadow and avowed themselves her votaries forever. The first Fier manent settlement in America was established at James town in Virginia in 1g07.�? the adventurers received a Grant from James 1st, stipulating that they and their children should enjoy the same privileges As if they had remained or were born within the realm of great Britain. Other parts of the country were settled in different manners but the greater portion of our ancestors flying from the civil and religious persecutions of european despotism sought and found a Refuge amidst the uncultivated wilds of the new world. Here the Black and bloody Standard of tyranny had never fluttered in the wind Here they hoped to enjoy that Liberty for which Thev had deserted their native land yes for Freedom and for us they became voluntary exiles from their country a it a True their country trampled on their rights
