Burlington Weekly Telegraph (Newspaper) - March 15, 1851, Burlington, Iowa A St Mya Pir . March to. To it m meeting of the citizen Otto him Lump jmj it Ulm la Burdar the 8th Day of March for the Pur on so. A a a pose of taking into Cornier at Ion the Amenuel charter of Hie Oquawka and Peoria rail Road. On motion of we. D. Hendersone a. Oil Fht to Axil a foq., we called to the chair a a ,hit1 of t Lirtz fathers i Quot a i or. J. Ii Stewart elected Secretary. ,�1 #1 t dirty tamers motion of j p put Raon e-q., resolved that the chair appoint threate Leonato draft Resolution for the action of tuts meeting a Tutor to the amended charter of the Oquawka and Peoria rail Road. Thereupon the chair appointed j. P. Patter a on. W. D. Henderson and James Moir and on Mutton Mark Graham and John m. Fuller were added to said committee. The committee re is bad denounce i a utterly destitute of truth tired and after a Short stay presented the Fol a Ichieh Wejs Root Eyfa a by the file of the Gama a a a the a ital Iii Lahurl. Aad by Jat Forth a nets toe Iowa state Gazette the very stately hate Genet Tel the and a retail dealer in politic and second hand to toilers lumber through a column of very aquire Eal Noa in get in order to explain and justify the Meier of in fits boo a of the preceding week. There i no reiteration of its wretched a in no to attempt at proof no allusion whatever to the my and Nuh Sou slanders which red Matte itself and which every Democrat whig and Abca Rotfer a the state knew to be false the moment they were uttered. The silence of the Gazette in this respect amounts to a Lirt Nal am at Ike a ame time mortify ing abandonment of it Titi on a recantation of its slanders to Iri if up of the ghost of untruth. There is Hope of Reform Ilion As Long As a lingering sense of shame prompts a recognition of the authority of Public sentiment. The Gazette Slid too much for its purpose the recoil has thrown it Flat on its Back. Evil deposed person May profit by its example and for the future forbear to count too largely upon the credulity of Prejs tie and the depravity of human nature. The Only Point time i at in the column of Gazette to rattle so far As we Are hate to discover any Point at All to a him attempt to convict us of a Little innocent Bento ism. We have expose i the falsity of this allegation too often already to bother our readers with it again. The poor old Gazette. In order to sustain itself lugs in the new York e vening Post Albany Atlas. And Chicago Democrat As free soil organs with which h alleges we Are acting in concert. It so happens that we Hare not seen either of these paper Lor years and w hat they May be driving at in politics we neither know nor care. If they advocate free Oil doct net everybody knows they derive no Aid from the Telegraph. What they May my about col. Benton is a matter a touch beyond oar control As is the course of the National intelligencer towards or. Clay and of equal indifference to our feelings. To regret the coarse of the Gazette for More reasons than one. It is the last paper with which we should have sought an altercation and it ought to Hare been the last to assail us especially with charges As unkind an i injurious in purpose As they were devoid of truth and reason. By listening to insane counsels it has involved itself in acts of foil an injustice which it never can explain away satisfactorily to an honest and enlightened Public. When a political journal cease to be True to it own household its integrity will be Couie questioned and its influence will soon cease to be Felt at the ballot Box and in the primary meetings of the we could sincerely wish the Gazette a different Fate arid therefore warn it to Bew Are of selfish and imprudent counsels. For one we cast freely Torgier its injustice if the Public will forget its falsehoods. The accredited editor of the Gazette is a gentleman towards whom we entertain none other than prop a feelings. We w ish him Well in his new vocation but to Honor it lie roust stick to facts As they Are and have been and not As they May happen to be warped to his hand by reckless and unscrupulous plotters of mischief. Lock up sir look abroad Over the state learn your duty aright if you would discharge it honestly and faithfully take the entire party into View an. Open your ears to the voice of the a orly 1 you Are a Young Man yet and have your political character to form among us. Let it be based upon a Broad and enduring foundation and in after time you will have some reason Yuria to respect yourself if you May not Challenge that of the Public. Avoid slanderers and Arnall Beer politicians pm their counsel a be a Inan after your own ideas of that animal keep on the Jackson Side of every question a Long a you pretend to be a Democrat and go ahead like a Yoag earthquake by following this homely advil of a your Mele Fuller a you will stand a Chance in the Long run to become a a some pumpkin. A you say that you will recur again to a the better not unless you can improve greatly upon your last Effort. Take a fool advice and drop it while you May. Fate is against you for facts Are stubborn things. The files of your own taper Are terrible telltale against every word you have uttered and every one you must utter for the future if you attempt to to Ster up your former assertions. The recollection of the politician of All parties throughout the state is fresh and their United evidence is full against you. You can to fool them nor any one else by pretending to be a a this is a Case of farts and not a f cd a in a a matter of slander not of literature but if Yon can see nothing brighter in the future than the agitation of this unmitigated slander the sooner you shall a a recur to the subject a the better for those who have a Leal and substantial interest in out ant putting Down a a it has been said that whom the gods would a be Troy they first make we shall see what we Lialja see. The Telegraph stand ready to round up to the threatened Thunder whenever the Yul cans of the Gazette who manufacture the article from the raw material shall give the word. A a poor or the i a which Ait to a a a a a a we fowl a a As Unm y a we wow a a were Una Noou by we heartily the news a cushions of some of the provisions of the be errors of opinion i be the object of resolved bit we heartily approve of the project for constructing a rail Road from Peoria to out Weka with a lateral Branch to Burlington and that we recommend to the citizens of Henderson county a cordial co operation with the counties of Warren. Knox Fulton. Peoria and the cite of Burlington. Resolved. That we tender our Hearty thanks to the members of the county court of Henderson county for the Public spirit Aud Zeal for the interests of our county and Section of country which they exhibited in ordering an election to May next for the purpose of determining whether Henderson county shall take $50,000 Stock in the Peoria a. Oquawka rail Road. Urto Lccy that we heartily recommend to the citizens of Henderson county to vote at the coming election for the taking of 50,000 Stock in a 1 rail Road b cause we believe that the value of the lands in our county will be so much enhanced. That a tax for the payment of the interest of said Stock would be Little Felt by our citizens. _ i , that the commissioners for Henderson county Are hereby instructed to use their he to exertions to have the Branch contemplated by the amendment of said charter to Start from Soin Point in Henderson county. Resolved that the citizens of Burlington deserve the thanks of this meeting for their recent vote in directing the City to take Stock to the amount of $75jxr in said Road. Jumil ctr that a corresponding committee of 3 be appointed by the chair to Corres Jionda w Ith the different Points of said Road. A Csolti. That the proceedings of this meeting it a published in the pay is of Peoria Fulton 1 Knoxville Galesburg Monmouth Oquawka and Burlington. Thereupon the chair appointed Stephen s. Phelps. J. B.

Us to it a As that some of a papers in the state in their recent Dis of sob Vised code have exhibited and argument. Truth should such discussions and truth can Best be ascertained after bearing both aides. With your permission 1 should be glad to reply to torn of the article Alt Oded to through Jour i propose at this time to notice briefly an article from the miners express republished and endorsed a week or two since by the Dee Moines Republic the object of which was to a How the i expediency and impotence of those provisions of the code relative to the Sale of intoxicating liquors. The creation a a belief that a Law to ineffectual is doing much towards rendering it so. If the proposition above alluded to is erroneous the Public goed requires its correction. The writers to whom i have alluded teem to mis apprehend or at least the undervalue the object of the enactment under consideration which is evidently to prevent the establishment or continuation of tipping houses or dram shops. No one can suppose the this will at once annihilate All the evils which flew from the use of ardent spirits but will any one deny that much will be thus effected As much perhaps As it was proper for legislation to attempt f moral suasion most do the rest. The great difficulty with which the Temperance reformer has to contend is nol to produce a conviction of the evils of intemperance but to overcome the Force of habits to prevent those who Are wishing to resist the baneful relish for intoxicating drinks from yielding to temptation. How Many men have we known who would remain at Home sober and temperate for weeks but who whenever they came to town could not pass a grocery without tasting a Ltd Baring once tasted would lose All self control Sod become sets again the Law proposes to remove this Opportunity and temptation so that Good resolutions formed in consequence of up peels to their better feelings and their reasons May be permanent. To continue the system of licensing these drinking houses and then punish intemperance As has been suggested from some quarters is but Little More reasonable or just than to c reate a source of Marsh Miasma before 1 our doors and then punish us for shaking with i the ague.

Daniel f. Are under o ligation to Hon. D. F Miller for numerous documents recently furnished this office. From ii Peoria Republican. Peoria and Mississippi Railroad. Mtg Embea two. A. Pickett i have but Little Leisure the present week to continue my remarks upon he subject of the Peoria and Mississippi Railroad. I attempted in my last to show the importance of some immediate action in favor of this great Enterprise on the part of the people of this City. The people West of the Mississippi to Hare and Mutt Hare an outlet to the end to. If they cannot get a Road to Peoria they will go somewhere else. If our people will act Aud act liberally Aud vigorously Iowa will pour her Rich into our Lap. If we Are in fort if we fold our hands and say u a Little More sleep a Little to f slumber a our Days of rapid growth and Prosperity will soon be null a ered. Last year Quot a very Cotnam Endale Zeal was Mamie Ted in favor of this Railroad. It was then thought Best to delay any further action because the old charter was found to be very defective and because it was deemed a most important object to obtain a Grant from the legislature of the old Warsaw Railroad from to harming on. These objects have now been accomplished. The charter has been amended so that it is As favourable As can be de ired or expected. This old track can now be had by a company probably for a very Small a Mere nominal sum. This is Worth to company at least $100,000, by saving that but we Are told that the Law will be evaded or violated. Perhaps it May be in some instances. So Are the gaming Laws but who does not at once perceive that gambling in secret and by stealth is much less pernicious than though it were openly permitted and sanctioned by Law ? if there were at Many licensed gambling houses in this City As there Are establishments for retailing liquor if the doors were kept open by night and Day if piles of Gold and Silver and Bank notes were spread out in tempting array before the eyes not Only of those who enter but also of those who pass along the streets who can doubt that the effect would be infinite la More pernicious than the present condition of things if we can effect a similar change in regard to our temptations to intemperance in Oral Effort May then act without the fear that its object will be thwarted by Legal enactments. Again it is alleged that the Law under consideration by permitting the Ordinary traffic in intoxicating dunks transforms every store into a grocery. No More than the right to Issue a common promissory note makes every merchant a banker. The distinction is just As Broad and As Well understood in the one Case As in the other. A i Ank Bill is Only a promissory note. The Law Al own any one to make a promissory note and to traffic with it in the Ordinary Way. But the Constitution refuses a License for opening a shop for issuing these notes to be used As a circulating medium. I believe the express and the Republic would both regard the above provision of the Constitution As useful and efficacious. Why should they so readily give judgment before trial in the Case now under consideration ? the declaration that the Public would not henceforth be sharers in the profits of Russel Ling has been made a subject of ridicule hut with Bow Little Justice ? is it not easy to perceive that by sharing in the profits we encourage the act How Many honest and upright men in our own City have been engaged in the retailing of ardent spirits who would never have done so but for the Legal License Given them for that Pur pm it one they look to the Laws of the land As furnishing a sufficient Rule for their conduct in this particular without searching for a u higher Charles the second of England is said to have secretly licensed the Buca Niers of the West indies and to have shared in the profits of their Pira cies. When these ruthless men were consigning to destruction the infant and its Mother did not the countenance and participation of amount a expense of grading this certainly i a a. No1 1 a cd to s i. A he re Orth Din Lor and .a.inr, Ltd a. a a a of is an object Worth seeking for and saving i suspect from remarks i have heard made by ome of our citizens that considerable disc our Emont has been produced by the lately pub in Dinc a Gazette in order to furnish a partial excuse for its unjust course toward this paper and for the further purpose of hitting the editor in a false position drags in the name of Cass Dickinson and Douglas m such manner As to favor the impression that we had been warring against the policy of these gentlemen. It would be utter Aon Soute the Challenge the Gazette to the proof of this imputation while it already stands dumbfounded under a former challenges nevertheless we would take it As a favor which we shall be glad to reciprocate if the manager of that concern would show to a Reader the fir get word which has Ever appeared in our columns disparaging in the slightest degree the Good mine the politic integrity or the proposed policy of either of these gentlemen. A the proof of the pudding is in chewing the bag a and slander cannot Long remain current unless substantiated by some show of testimony. The to the reasoning of the Muscatine enquirer which has been copied Lishco statements of or. Rantoul respecting i the cod of railroads. He makes the Best single track roads most nearly $j8jxiu per mile. At such Cost our Road to Burlington will require $2,380. 100 for its construction. This it is Rex div admitted is a greater sum than can be Rais i in this new country at this time. That funds can be raised to build so expensive a Road from the people along the line or even in j the Western country i do not suppose but j that enough can be raised to build such a Road As will meet the present wants and requirements of the country 1 believe. I cannot doubt but a Good Toad with the Fiat bar rail. Mtg be made to the Mississippi for $10,000 per mile and that such a Road May he made from Feona to Farmington a Little less than Twenty five mile taking the old track for $100,000 to $125.�>. Nearly All the grading is preserved in a tolerably Good condition. I know it is objected that w Hen a Railroad is built it should be in the most substantial manner. It seems to i me however that if we cannot build a Road of the Best class to should if we Are Able make one of another and a cheaper class. A Well built Road w Ith the Fiat bar rail will do the business of the country for a few years and Confer immense benefits upon the people. When a Roa i of this kind shall begin to fail so As to require reconstruction the increase of population Ami wealth will have been such that the people will be amply Able to build a Road of the Best class. Any one who has witnessed the growth and improvement of this Section of the country for the last ten or twelve years cannot doubt Fhi. The cheap Road will of itself earn or create the Means to build a better one. As Well right it be contended that our new settlers should not build log Cabins to protect them series and families from the storms and tempests of Winter while opening their new farms but should build them Etves Good Frame buildings in the first place As to say we will have no Railroad until we can have one of the Best that modern skill and science can furnish. Can the people of Peoria end Farmington and those along the line raise the necessary Means to build Iii part of the Road ? that the Means Are Here. 1 have no doubt Means too that can Well be spared. We have men of wealth men who Liy the most undivided attention to their business have met with a Success the to t Gratifying such men Are cautious How they invest their Well earned acquisitions but i let them once see a reasonable Assurance of the Access of the Enterprise get them once enlisted in the work and they Are the very men i who will make Success certain. Another movement was made last evening that i encouraging. A petition was presented to the i common Council of this City praying that body to have a spec id election for the Legal voters of this City to determine by their votes whether the cout11 shall sus crib Stock a the Railroad not exceeding $100,000, the petition was re acts to their own consciences i mention this by was of illustration and not for the purpose of instituting a comparison Between the grocery keeper and the Buchanier. Or take a Case More nearly apposite a Privateer is a licensed pirates he seizes upon the property of private citizens on the Ocean and divides his Booty with the government an act which would be robbery if done on land and yet How Many honorable and upright citizens Are found ready to engage in this species of legalize robbery whose humanity and sense of Justice would revolt at the idea of making gain by the forcible acquisition of the property of innocent and Uno fending individuals were not Wrt dirt nov by a.

It was recently mid to i me by two Boston capitalists that if we would help ourselves if we would begin the work in i Earnest and thus show our own Confidence in the Enterprise we could easily obtain funds at the East to Complete the Road a and on of them a gentleman of High Eminence As connected with the improvements of the country said do not a do too much before calling Lor Aid from the East if you do they will Mak you pay too 1 Muehr interest. I idea As i understood it i was that we must show our own Confidence in the undertaking As the surest Way of getting i the Confidence of Eastern capitalists.

I am therefore of the opinion that something substantially valuable has been accomplished by dissolving the partnership heretofore existing Between the government and the grocery. By this ret the Law has emphatically declared the practice of drat Selling to be pernicious and the effect of the declaration and example will not be thrown away. I Hope no one will be so far influenced by the prediction that this Law will prove a dead letter As to venture to disregard it without a careful examination of its provisions. They Are easily comprehended and tolerably stringent. Among other things it is made no longer necessary to prove the ownership of the premises which has heretofore furnished the most usual Means ofes Cape for those who had violated the Law. The indictment or information May be against the building itself wherein the violation of the Law has taken place. The sheriff thereupon seizes the building and its contents in the ume manner is if by attachment and holds them in his custody to satisfy the judgment of the court unless some one will come Forward acknowledge himself the owner and give Security Lor the satisfaction of that judgment. On the whole i am of the opinion that the Law is a tolerably Good one and that whoever attempts to violate it will find the Road Hilly sometimes Steep and always Slippery.

We take pleasure in laying before our readers the following interesting and encouraging letter from Peoria received by yester Flay a mail. Its perusal Wilt doubtless afford satisfaction to our readers and All others Friendly to the Enterprise. We think we see in the fact set Forth Aad i the Lone of the letter the most Gratifying assurances that Peoria has been a Wake and to a fall realization of the immense importance and advantages of the work and that her citizens will take hold with a Strong hand and a determined will to push it Forward to immediate completion. Two important facts stated in the letter cannot fail to arrest the attention of our citizens 1st that a rail Road is authorized to be constructed from Peoria to Springfield thus bringing us within a few hours of St. Louis at All seasons of the year and 2d, that Eastern capitalists stand pledged to but old both the Peoria and Springfield and the Road from Peoria East to the Central rail Road. Thus have we opened up before us As the Bright prospects of a no Distant future direct connection with St. Louis at All seasons by Way of Springfield and the same connection with new Orleans and new York by Means of the great Central rail Road. These fac fit cannot but awaken the beet Hopes of our citizens and arouse them to renewed Energy and activity in the great Enterprise. We Trust the suggestion contained in this letter will be followed and the Day and place for a meeting named immediately. If this has not already been done we propose Knoxville As the place and wednesday the 9th of april As the time. What say you friends along the line Peoria March 4, 1851. Gentlemen a your esteemed favor of the 19h feb. Came to band a Short time arcs and was hailed As a Star of Promise. We notice with pleasure As an a nest of Success the spirited movements of your citizens in the work of uniting the interests of Iowa and Illinois and More particularly of Burlington and Peoria by the Strong Iron band of the nineteenth Century. To which permit us to Hope will soon be added through its increased facilities for communication the More enduring and pleasant Bonds of personal Friendship and fraternal Intercourse. We cannot but feel assured that the favourable result of your present efforts when known will greatly assist in arousing to action throughout the entire line of the Road. The efforts of our citizens last year seemed a realized by some unfavourable features in the charter which Are now As we believe entirely removed and will Somi be generally known. The feelings of Many of us Are encouraged by the passage of the charter giving us an outlet to Springfield and a connection with the Central Road at Bloomington Aud the still More important fact that an Eastern company Are pledged to Complete both within four years. We would Here remark that so far from Peoria wishing to Stop All roads Here we feel warranted in the belief that no one thing has brought the Western Road More into Ivor than the probability of an Eastern outlet nor shall we be satisfied until it crosses the Central Tiack and unites probably at Lafayette ia., with the great Eastern outlay which opens to us the Atlantic coast at almost every important Point from Charleston to Quebec. With reference to a meeting of the commissioners for organization a would remark that in a hurried note to the Monmouth Talas we suggested that Knoxville Monmouth Oquawka and Burlington should name the time and place intimating at the ume time that sufficient notice of the Call should be Given and somewhat improved roads desirable for the meeting.

Baldwin and h Mitchell being appointed said committee reported the following preamble and resolutions which were adopted. Whereas the county of Jefferson at this time is the most densely populated of any county in the state with one exception arid contains Large and extensive mines of Coal the value of which would be greatly increased by having easy nodes of transportation to those parts which have no Coal and whereas the agricultural and commercial interests of the county at this time deserve a More expeditious and available Mode of transportation to her markets and whereas the citizens of Burlington and Des Moines county Are now using great exertions to extend from the Mississippi to our Borders a Plank Road therefore resolved. That we commend the spirit and Enterprise which has been manifested by the citizens of Burlington and Vicinity in undertaking to build Plank roads from that flourishing City into the Interior of the state. Resolved that the building of roads through our county and then to commercial Points on the Mississippi so As to enable the citizens of our to get with facility and ease to Good and available markets with their commodities should at this time claim their Earnest and careful consideration.

Let us have a full meeting at the court House. Trial of Commodore have already announced the fact that the sentence of suspension of Commodore Jones for five years one half the time without pay Ami emoluments by the court martial recently assembled at Washington has been approved by the president Ami Secretary of the Navy. He is declared not guilty of the first and second charges and guilty of the third fourth and fifth charges. The findings acquit the Commodore in some of the specifications wherein he is charged with Fra Milf deceit wilful and deliberate falsehood malice negligence oppression a. The following remarks by the court accompany the sentence. A a the court thinks it proper to remark that it has been induced to add to to the suspension of the accused the suspension of his pay and emoluments for a portion of the time from a consideration of the facts proven before it touching the profits made by him from the improper and unauthorized use of the Public Money. A a the court further remarks that in substantially acquitting the accused of the matter charged in the second specification of the third charge it does not mean to be understood As entertaining the slightest doubt of the injustice done to the three lieutenants Green mar band and Craven by the language quoted in the specification from the accused despatch. No. 34. The court has discovered nothing in the testimony in any manner affecting the character of those officers or either of them. But the court did not find it proven that the alleged libel which is contained in an official and privileged communication was written and transmitted by the accused with feb. 25. Office straight line Railroad from St. Loni to Cincinnati Gazette rejoices greatly at the passage by the Virginia legislature of the Parkersburg or Northwestern Railroad Boffl a incorporating a company Lor the continuation of a Railroad from the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad near Clarksburg Virginia to Parkersburg near Marietta.

The a Naeem then entered Tho room of mrs. C., who was confined in bed by sickness and shot her and her sister who was attending her. The fiend upon making his escape from the House met the servant who he also shot. All of the persons have since died. It is yet a mystery who did the deed or what motives they could have had for such an act. The most intense and painful alarm prevails in the neighbourhood. Death or a worthy morning about four of clock Captain Henry m. Shreve one of the worthiest citizens of our Community died St the resilience of his son in Law in this City. He was one of the earliest and most intelligent pioneers of Western Commerce having commenced Flat boating As Early As 180h, and continued in that business until 1814. In december 1814, he took charge of a Steamboat the third built on the Western Rivers Ami proceeded with her from Pittsburgh to new Orleans performing the downward trip in fourteen Days. He put himself and Steamer under the direction of Gen. Jackson and under cover of night conveyed troops and supplies for the Relief of fort St. Phillips running by the British batteries undiscovered. During the Battle of the 8th of january he served one of the heavy Field pieces which Cut Down the advancing column of Gen. Kean. Although two steamers had previously made the downward trip Captain Shreve was the first to make the upward voyage. By his own improvements of the steam engine and models of steamboats he first demonstrated the practical bit of navigating the Mississippi by steam Power and for his Success was honoured with a Public dinner More than a Quarter of a Century ago. To him the Wes owes also the destruction of the celebrated Livingston and Fulton monopoly which had virtually locked up the navigation of the Mississippi. During the administration of Adams Jackson and Van Caen he was u. 8. Superintendent of Western River improvements. As the inventor of the steam Snag boat he contributed More to the safety of Western Commerce and became a greater Benefactor to the West than almost any one identified with the history of the Mississippi River. A full biographical sketch of capt. S., was published in the democratic review about three years ago. In his death the Public sustains a heavy loss. The funeral will take place this Forenoon at half past ten of clock from Christ Louis times 6/a. Oca country abroad impressions in German correspondent of the Philadelphia bulletin eloquently writes of the colossal impressions which the peopled Europe begin More fully to entertain of our country As they read of its extraordinary Progress which the census returns so surely indicate a a but never has the growth of material interests so surprised the world As that brought to Light by the late census of the United states. The statistics Are mostly copied in the foreign papers and such Gigantic strides in wealth and population Are looked upon with wonder Here in the old world. Men say and with truth i suppose that the history of Mankind has no parallel to such a steady Une cited firmly Laid Progress. And i have no question that the next ten years will show an increase of emigration from these countries of Continental Europe which will he More astounding and be it remembered too an emigration of thorough industrious labourers add mechanics the Best perhaps that we could have from Europe. I find men everywhere in these German states dissatisfied with the condition of their country and fearful for the future looking eagerly to the free land Over the Waters men often too not at All among the ignorant classes. This is especially True of the smaller states like Saxony which Ean gain nothing from these wars and disturbances and May lose everything. A a it must make you at Home look anxiously around at this immense foreign element infusing itself into our country its society and into the spirit which is to form its new institutions. However As a mixture of races in the worlds history has Ever invigorated any single Stock and As the English language the great language of the future is an amalgamation of All languages we need not fear perhaps for this corresponding amalgamation of nations this meeting together of nearly All races of the Earth on our wide richly stored land.

I Burns festival in the City of n. York or. A lord Clark made an allusion was present and concluded with the following Bryants the poet of the Toast was received with great ent Lusiam when or. Bryant arose and said i thank the company or. President for the High compliment they have paid me. It is enough to make any poet vain to be toasted at a festivity held to celebrate the memory of so Grest a poet As Burns. One circumstance is enough to stamp Burns As a Man of the highest order of Genius. He took a local dialect and made it classical gave it a character of universality. I am not ignorant of what the poets who had lived before Burns did for the dialect of Scotland nor what has been done since by Walter Scott whose works a read by every body and will be read for Ages to come. But the poets of the scottish dialect before Burns never attained that general and popular perusal which his works have acquired and it was the Good Fortune of Scott that he wrote after Burns had made that dialect familiar to All classes of English readers. It was Burns who taught us All to love the scottish dialect its Graceful diminutive its Rich store of comic expressions its homely but intensely significant phrases of pathos and tenderness which go to the heart. Within his lifetime Ami his life was not a Long one his poems were read wherever the English language is spoken on the Banks of the Hudson of the Ashley Ami the Sanee. Of the Mississippi of the 8t. Lawrence of the Ganges As Well As on the Banks of the Tweed and the thames. It is owing to Burns that the natives of Scotland have it in their Power to say that to him who has not some knowledge of the scottish dialect Ami some relish for its significance there is one chamber of the common Treasury of our literature a chamber filled with gems Ami jewels to which he has not the key. A a a of pioneers of Reform movements often fall info the Shade while a a eleventh hours men reap the Harvest they have planted. The reason is that few reformers Are at once constructive Ami destructive. In the beginning the great work to be accomplished is destruction the refer air is thrown into an attitude of offensive antagonism to whatever is and becomes so accustomed to a defiant position that conciliation is out of his Power.
