Hepburn spoke As follows the Rev. Or. Hepburn s a Peeff. 11 fellow citizens i am in moaning apology when i say that i sincerely regret thac Tye duty of opening the discussion upon these devolved upon Roe. A Nof the Fri have tho cast m publicly declaring my views and feelings upon a any of the subjects referred to in Thorn it is the duty of every Roan a now to avow his honest convict ions. The great error of conservative my no Hae been that they have been too prudent or timid rather. We ought to a be Wiser in the future. But i would prefer that some of the older citizens of Wilmington to Many of whom have taken such an Active part in this meeting should address you i Mead of me. Still a As the interests of All of us Are involved in the course pursued by this a Community and by of Ripatte we have All a fright to speak and to be healed. A we Luyo not assembled in any Mere spirit of exultation. We see about us Taro much of tho frightful results of War for this we a miss Many familiar faces which we shall Nev behold on Earth again we see Many of our citizens reduced to poverty and want we have seen to Doy citizens of a neighbouring state a brought into our midst Many of whom wore once in affluence who Hove been left Home less and Are now dependent upon the charities of the authorities and of Wiir citizens for their support. would be hard hearted indeed who could in the midst of such abounding misery indulge in frivolous exultation. No we have come together As ear Doat men to decide on matters of greatest in fco France to . A / i May say too that we say nothing in to frence to past opinion and 0uch a Large assemblage As this All varieties opinion must have been held. It is no Fri Graco for a Man to change Bis opinions ris dishonest and unmanly to disavow Bis past life this baseness is not asked by these solutions of any Man. We. Have. Nothing a do with the past / let the dead past Bury. Read Alt Nat to prop ref is to Doole re clearly and firmly our present views As the course which we deem it our duty to pursue. A a tho sum and substance of the resolutions is that we renounce the government under which we have been living for borne Yearb and their we a cry fitly desire that our state Man once More be restored to the Union. A a if there is any one present who still has airy lurking feeling that Trio Confederate government has any claims upon him let him but review tho Courso of its rulers for the past four years or if he prefer it for the last year and let him then Quot say what motives of hour or duty bind him to it. Treason gon Tlemcen a a crime of which not merely the subjects of a government May be guilty it the rulers Algo May be guilty of it. Right minded people will alway8 exercise great Charity toward their rulers and will endure much from them but there is a Point beyond which obedience ceases to be a Auty. When the government becomes unjust and cruel when rulers emand what a a fre Oroen dare not give Quot then the rulers become the traitors and hot to resist and renounce them a treason against Freedom and against humanity womb a has been the course of the Confederate authorities from tho beginning ? of All those rights which we have been taught to regard As Moat stored what Orie is there that they have not violated ? this confederacy was founded on the principle of state rights and the rights of tho states were at the very first trampled under foot. Then we had a conscript Law it was denounced by some of the leading men of our states As unconstitutional and As what ought never to to in a free country but tho Law was passed As swooping ruthless and cruel a system of of inscription As Ever disgraced the a legislation of any country. A every year added to its a injustice and severity until at thelast or Davis demanded All exemptions should be revoked and that in his hands should be lodged the whole Power of deciding whether a Man should Servo the confederacy at Home or in the Field. was to detail men to practice Medicine a reach the gospel edit newspapers Mako Awe amp of. What a claim was that to be put Forth in this once free noun cry 1 then we had most oppressive1 tuxes a the last diet was wrung from the clutched Bend of poverty a and owing to Blunder or fraud that tax must be doubled. Had were Maine much longer in their Power there Are Many Here who would have had to sell Evory thing to pay their taxes. I need not dwell on the rope Diatian of the currency the suspension of tho writ of Hareas Corpus legalized robbery called impressment the want of Good Faith in their dealings with our citizens the secret sessions of Congress &e., amp of. To close the catalogue of their follies and crimes we see that slavery which was declared by or. Stephens the Corner Stone of the confederacy will soon be completely destroyed by them. I aay Thon a what claims has a government which has thus forsaken All the principles upon which it was founded and which has been guilty of so prolonged and systematic and oppression upon any Man for Confidence or support ? truly do these Reso a lotions declare that the War is now waged fori the Sake of which has forfeited All claims4o our confided to and affection. A a a we declare also in these resolutions that it is our conviction that our Only Hope for peace Security and Freedom is in the restoration of the Union in allies integrity and that we desire to see our state Onoe More a member a of a the it a uni amp a. This i believe is the sentiment of the Large majority of the people of North Carolina 4 do not believe that she Ever Loat her attachment to the old government. North Carolina never gave in to the heresy of see Sion. When the hour of trial came when War was seen to be inevitable end she was called upon to take sides in the struggle she yielded to the Strong claims of blood and Kindred and even against her convictions she generously stepped Forward to defend those against whose views 8he had always protested and most gallantly Lias she fulfilled the pledges Eho then made. She was trained in a different political school from borne of her sister states of the some two years Agod had occasion to look Oyer a number of speeches and oration made by prominent men of our state through a lung series of years. I was struck with the uniformity of their views on the inestimable a value of the Union. All who referred to the subject enforced the necessity of preserving the Union in its integrity and Power As the Only Means for scouring to the states the Blessing of peace and Liberty. Especially do i Rebi Ember Thot Marks of one whose name will always be held in Honor not Only in this state but throughout the whole United states a i mean judge Gaston. I asked myself Asil read these Strong Decla dons whether these Wise and Good men were Only indulging in empty declamation or whether they were expressing their deliberate convictions in 1 in. Ten Lka of Mora in Refl of Pivov-�u6 a a a ,. I now know that Thoirs were words of truth and Wisdom. It was an evil Day to us Whon we turned a deaf ear to Scheir voice. By four years of suffering and bloodshed we have Learned the value of that government which onco Laid so Light upon us that we scarcely know that we had a government and which diffused so quietly its blessings that to Learned to despise it and to night we declare that we oboe Back to tho Faith of bur fathers and Hope fur Security for ourselves Hod Prosperity for our state in the restoration of tho state to that Union in which she enjoyed so Greta Prosperity in the past. Quot i know that in the minds of Many there is the feeling that although tho Independence of the South is now hopeless yet it would be better for us if to could be an Independent nation of fac is a fatal delusion. The worst thing that could befall the South would be for her to gain her Independence. Were the Choice Given us to night of choosing Between reconstruction and the establishment of the South As a separate and Independent Empire we should decide without a moments hesitation in favor of reconstruction. To say so because i am convinced that Freedom and this so called Independence cannot exist together. Let me ask every wavering mind if there be any such present to reflect upon ��?oj8� posing that tho original so hemp i the secessionists had succeeded and that they Haa established a separate government in Southern states what would have been. The inevitable result ? does any one suppose that the two nations could have lived together in peace 1 remember that or. Thornwell in a made about the time that South Carolina passed the ordinance of secession Dre a with his accustomed eloquence a glowing picture of the two sister republics growing up in Harmony slide by Side but it was As wild a fancy As Ever entered a sane Many a two such nations speaking a common Lan Chace with different forms of civilization rival interests and feelings embittered by years of controversy could not live together m peace. Perpetual War would have existed Between them. Large standing armies would be required to guard our boundaries and our coasts and whence would these armies be found where slavery exists theye is no. Foreign emigration from our own Entrom our own men from the Middle class from the Small Farmers and mechanics those who make the Pride and a free country and Are the controlling p Igor would the Ari tics to supplied by a Stern conscription while those who possessed Broad lands and a Largo numbers of slaves would Hugo been the exempts and these would have formed the ruling Clas in the nation. We should thus have had a slave aristocracy the slaves to till the soil and do the Little manufacturing that would have to be done while the poorer class of White people would compose tho array. You May to sure that such a system would soon degenerate into a most Cru a military despotism. Yet there can be no doubt Tomt such Wusthof scheme of John 0. Calhoun and of those who attempted to act out his principles. But do void suppose that there would be Only two republics if the work of separation should onco commence it would not end until the whole nation should be resolved into its original elements and we should soon have a multitude of Petty military despotism tho contempt of All foreign nations wasting each others. Strength in bloody and endless feuds. We have seen the commencement of this work of disintegration during the last four years. The pc plei of the trans-mi88�89� department have for some time regarded themselves As inde pendent. I know it to be a fast that when in. Hood was placed in command of the army of Tennessee an order was sent beyond the m�88�ssipi for 2d,000 men to reinforce him and the Nion refused to obey the order. So at present How comes it thet Gen Leeds weakened army receives no reinforce meet Troin that Quarter ? is it not evident to All that the Fate of the confederacy will be decided by the to suits of the military movements East of tho Mississippi Why then Are not the Largo armies which we Are told Are beyond the River added to Leeds forces. 1 saw it stated not Long ago that the men had refused to. Come and i believe the statement. Yes if even the Southern con Deracy had become a separate nation the mls Assipi River would soon have out it in two and you would have had two confederacy is instead of one. Nor would it have stopped Thero. Hardly had the War fairly commenced when we heard it said openly and frequently that tho Border states a Virginia North Carolina Kentucky and Tennessee could not Long live in Harmony with the Cotton states already a new confederacy was making its appearance. And so it would have gone on. Who can depict the of Sucha state of things ? May heaven in Meroy Avert from us and our posterity such a Fate 1 # a we desire then the reestablishment of the authority of the general government Over All its territory because we Are firmly persuaded that under the Protection of that government alone can we find Refuge from such a state of anarchy and ruin because to behave that under its of filtering care alone there a can to any Progress in Art Industry science Aud literature any Security for our lives and property and enjoyment of Plain practical Republican Freedom. In reference to tho future of our own1 state i have no prophecies to make. I am not so . Friends to be. Northcar Lioa Isa Graat and Noble state with her dowry of Fertile lands her fishes ies and mines and streams and valleys and her Brave and honest people she has All the elements of greatness. She prospered in the past in spite of All the obstacles in the Way let us Hope that when the storms of War arc passed and the confusion incident to our Trun amp Tivo state is gone that under a new and we Trust better order of things she will at once enter upon that career of Prosperity and Honor which heaven1 has marked out for these remarks which he delivered in a subdued but Earnest tone of voice indicating the deep and Earnest feeling by which each word was inspired hold tho audience in breathless attention which was Only broken by occasional applaud st during its delivery and at the close.

During the Progress of the French revolution there wore two parties which arose and for a Long time contested for the supremacy the g r�?Tror.diat8 and. The jacobins. Tae mob was at the disposal of the jacobins and sustained them in their most atrocious measures. We must a said Murat one of tho leaders of the Jacob Tuff a a strike into tiie hearts of our fuck. It is our Only a tho Giron hints attempted to arrest the. Progress of the frightful massacres in which the jacobins were engaged. They thus exposed themselves to the Daugert us charge of being in sympathy with the aristocrats. The strife which on hued a strife involving life for death was one of the most terrible recorded in his Lcuy. Madame Roland wag one evening urging Vergniaud to rally the Giro dist party at every Hazard to arrest the massacres. A the Only Hope a of France Quot said she a a is in the sacredness of the Law. This atrocious carnage causes thousands of bosoms to thrill with horror.

Such a conflict must necessarily terminate in a Street fight. The Cannon Are with our foes. The of the friends1 of the order massacred. Terror will restrain the rest. We Ahall ouly provoke our own b a for several Days the strife raged in the con mention with the utmost intensity Between a the Gironde its and the jacobins. Tho party which could obtain the majority 1 would surely consign tho other to tho scaffold. M. Roland the Giro dist minister of tho Interior was a Man of Grey Nipower but Madame Roland with a brilliancy of Genius Sel Doin 8uri�?~assed, prepared for him. His speeches in the convention. France recognized her marvelous abilities the one party regarded her with adoration add the other with hate. Probably never before in the history of the world has a woman occupied such a position. It soon became evident that the rage of the jacobins would descend upon a Date Rubaud and she was urged to escape from Paris. The heroic women replied a a i am ashamed to resort to any expedient. I will neither disguise myself nor make any attempt at Street escape. My enemies May always find me in my place. A i owe my country an example of firmne8b, and j will give she remained in paria and soon perished upon. The Guillotine. The convention consisted of eight Hundred men. Twenty one of the most illustrious men of France were considered leaders of the Gironde its. Tie Jato bins accused them of treason and Over awing the numbers of the convention by a mob carried the accusation and condemned them to death. It was then voted that All Paris should be illuminated in View of the Triumph of the people. At Midnight the while convention in procession traversed the Brilliant streets leading to Grace their Triumph the doomed Gironde its. They were All then consigned to the concierge Rie there to await the final trial. A summer came and went while illustrious men lingered in their with fortitude the record of which has embalmed Scheir memories they struggled to sustain each other to meet that Fate which Thov knew could not be doubtful. At length the hour of final Triumph came with the most imposing military array of infantry cavalry and artillery to guard gains the possibility of any Ooi Roter revolution the prisoners were conducted in a Long precess a a two by two to the judgment bar. It was the 30th of october 1793. At eleven of clock at night the Verdi of was brought in and they were doomed to be led the next morning to the Guillotine. As the sentence a was pronounced one of the Gironde its a Lane plunge i his heart and fell life term to the floor. Another in the delirium of enthusiasm shouted a a this is the to pfc glorious Day of my life Quot it waa Neidnig pfc when the victims were conducted Park to the Gondi Argiere. As they matched along their voices busted into the Marseilles hymn in tones which reverberated through the corridors of the prison and echoed through the a streets a a it come children of your country come the Day of glory dawns on High. And tyranny has wide unfurled a a her blood stained Banner to tho were placed in one Large Hall and the lifeless their comp Jion was Deposit cd in one Corner. By decree of Assembly the remains of Zaiane were to to taken with the rest to the Guillotine and the axe was to sever tho head from the lifeless body and All the headless trunks were very quietly to be interred together. Some friends or the Gironde its immediately sent to them a sumptuous banquet their final funeral repast. A Largo Oaken table was spread. Servants entered with Brilliant lamps. The richest i ads of my Jab and wines were brought in a vases of Flowers smiled and the costly dishes appeared one after another until the Board was covered with luxury and splendor. In silence they took Tny in places at the table. They were All men of Brilliant intellect and the most of them eloquent. A priest abbe Lambert who had gained admission with his Pencil noted Down their words their actions their indications their the repast was prolonged till the Dawn faintly entered the grated windows. When the cloth was removed and the fruits the wine and the Flowers alone remained the conversation became animated,.with occasional bursts of gaiety. A Fow of the unbelievers in immorality endeavoured thus to meet their but it Wasdi parity unnatural and unworthy of the men condition. Death is nut a jest Aud lie who attempts to regard it such dues but Dishonour himself. A a what shall we be doing at this time tomorrow a asked tacos.

It introduces us to a Noble existence. Were it not to there would be something greater than god. It would be just Mau isolating himself uselessly and hopelessly for his country. No 1 Vergniaud is no greater than god. God will not suffer Vergniaud to Morrow to. Ascend the scaffold but to justify and avenge him in future As the Light of morn penetrated the Dungeon some sought a moments sleep others wrote a last line to friends while others gathered in groups for. Conversation. At four of clock the Gens do armes entered with the executioners. The Huir was out from their necks that it might a not impede tho gen80iino picked up a lock and sont it to his wife saying a a Tell her that it is tho Only memorial of my love which cuu transmit to her and that Ray thoughts in death were a Vergniaud scratched upon his watch a few lines of tender remembrance Aud sent it to tho Young Ludy to whom in a few Days he was to be married. Five rude carts Cohy eyed them to the set Froid. Each car contained. File persons. The streets through which the sad procession marched were thronged with countless thousands. It was one of the most splendid of october mornings. As the carts moved tho Gironde its Sang the Marseillalse--iiymnr"afth��?~tn3 of each Verso Thero was a moments silence Aud then the Strain was renewed loud and sonorous. Arrived at the scaffold they All embraced. They then resumed their funeral chant. One after another ascended the scaffold continuing the song until his head fell into the Basket. Thero was no weakness no voice faltered. On each succeeding moment As head after head fell the song grew More faint. Vergniaud at last stood alone. Long confinement had spread a deadly Palor Over his intellectual features. ascended the Steps the chorus away into a Solo of surpassing Richness. For a moment he gazed upon the headless bodies of. His friends. And then As he surrendered himself to tho executioner commenced anew the Strain a a Coc a children of your country Homo to Day of glory dawns on tho axe fell and his lips were silent in death.
