But Why has the publication been objected to if the and Tress contains sentiments which Call for censure Why not let it go to the Public that the censure of All who read shall a Quot Al upon its author if it had even contained treason so much the greater reason Why its publication should be demanded. The truth is that with the View Terai it would n t be presented to the Public some have misrepresented its sentiments and have found it necessary to attempt to prevent its publication lest they should be detect id. But it is said to be of a party character and that it is improper to allude to such subjects on such occasions. How far it partakes of this character let others judge. That Man does not discharge a duty which he owes to his country if upon such an occasion he does not contrast the liberties which our fathers designed we should enjoy with those tre do enjoy. If Liberty be on the decline that Day More than any other is appropriate for an investigation of the causes of that decline. If it or Freedom be threatened the Man is not a Patriot who toes not on that Day reflect upon tie dangers which threaten. Sixty one years since our fathers spoke of principles and measures which were and had been oppressive. I spoke Only of principles and measures of a Sii Tillar tendency without Maki Iii an allusion to a party or individual. 1 neither Enlo Aried one parly nor condemned another.

What american can contemplate the Page of our country s his Ltd by to which our minds this Day revert and not be proud that he May Call this his native land while her thousand banners Are streaming upon the land and upon the sea upon the grave where rests her martyred heroes upon the Field where met her tented hosts upon the fair valleys it of the West but yesterday a wilderness while the voices of her millions of freemen arise to Greet the Day where is the Chris of a Noble birth the Aid of a titled nobility or the favor of a haughty arise Otway. And if aught of that ardor which glowed in the bosom of Lafayette that love of Liberty which nerved his Arm for Battle still lingers in the hearts of his countrymen does not this Day inspire France with the Hope that she May yet rejoice in the existence of a to Vernmani Wheeli shall not need the Aid of a Trammel led press and of which she cannot be deprived by the deadly blow of the Assassin or the ruthless violence of the mob does Spain torn to the very Beart with dissension and bleeding with revolution the most favourable result of which can be but Little better than the temporary Ascendancy of a few to Sway the Rod of tyranny look Forwand to no better Day when relieved from the Yoke of a bigoted Priesthood she shall rejoice in that Lili eral policy and those i Lee institutions which Are the Pride of America can Italy Pris Sessing within herself the resources of a mighty nation but cursed with her Laz Arronie with Petty factions and with a government which presents no stimulus to the energies of the people remain in apathy when she looks beyond the wave to an assembled nation exulting in the liberties of freemen and in the happiness Sec Ureil by an intelligent and industrious Community we speak not of those whose a div in dual interest is incompatible with the Public Good but of the people the be who groan beneath oppression and know Liberty Only As a name. But whatever May be the effect Notni the minds of those to whom we have alluded nations Aye the world is indebted to that event which we celebrate not Only for the development of mind and Genius which it slowed As the immediate and inevitable result of the revolution but for the glorious Ctm formation of the truth that the people Are capable of self government for the existence of a Republic for half a Century under a Constitution in the proper Admi Istrati in of which no citizen is deprived of a right representation Irum each and still later the people of �1 Southern Colony casting off the Yoke cd Domestic tyranny assuming a new form of government creating their own of cers setting North their grievances and through their representatives signing and publishing a a Quot Ormal declaration of their Independence. Whatever May have been the views of those who were Active in bringing about these measures each originating under a system of government different irom the other whether they looked Forward with prophetic Eye to the Day of ultimate Relief from the Thra Dom of the Mother country or not we find in these important Steps the very features in miniature of the policy of those ill whose charge were the interests of the colonies during the dark period of the revolution. These i Quot acts with the Opeti resistance of the colonists to the restrictions upon their Commerce and to Quot i Host Laws which had for their of Jacci to Disi courage Domos Iio Industry and to deprive tie Leople of resources which nature had our Nishti for the accumulation of wealth afford the brightest evidence of the spirit of Liberty which pervaded the Community while their ear-1 Alten Lian to the institution of Means for the education of the Young illustrated their estimate of the truth that the Best Hope of Liber y is founded in the virtue and intelligence of the people. A flame Lead already been kindled in the bosoms of Many which could not be extinguished and As the a Riligh ministry devised new systems of oppression that Iiames was increased and communicated to All. I Hough acts of oppression became More i request their ardor was not abated but tyranny was met at every step by the open Resis Tevice of tie people. With that system of despotism which now Eomme red founded in the weak policy of a government which sought to enrich itself by enslaving its people ii have been rendered Quot familiar.

For if it has been the Hasty proud Clit of a Day handed in the momentary exec Dement of honest but enthusiastic men or if it be the Mere result of a Compromise i tween it i Jordanl parties or ambitious demagogues its permanency must be As doubtful As its foundation has been weak and futile. But what is its history More description when Contra died with that which is a conveyed in the glowing language of one who now sleeps beneath the Sod of Monn cello that mighty production of the mind to which millions have this Day listened with admiration. New England first in the diffusion of the principles of Liberty first in open resistance to oppression became the first whose soil received the blo cd of the Bril Tny but not until the voice of the no the "�0 arms Quot had been answered by the thrilling Echo of the South.

Nurtured by such men in a Clinie congenial to its nature it received a fresh Imp use in every attempt to Check its growth watched by americans. And is Yon Asretli Veteran the relic their sons it increased in Beauty in its strength of a band of fearless men. Before whose memory resisting every attempt a it crush it until watered comes As vivid As reality the scene of Battle and Slang Literl tiie glittering steel of the crested Brit n and the form of the fallen foe str Gilling upon the gory Fields alone to rejoice this Day does that bosom Only thrill with Joy which can Point to a Home in our ii Appy land As the place of its birth no the exile from the Lanty of Kosciusko the Patriot from the hmm Eon of Austria and the enthusiastic native of Erin Are upon our shores a the same chord touched and their voices mingle with ours As we swell the Anthem of Liberty.

Wherever the proud Flag of our country unfurls its starry Crest above the Majestic Oise to. There even now Are a the birth Day of american Liberty the Dawn of Freedom to a world.

The primitive Sei lenient to which we halt a Al the past to Shaf system of oppression which had commenced in assuming Dominion Over the con herded firms an Imp Oriatti Era in the history of science of Man and continued under every form the world in View of the causes which produced Down to the period when it would have deprived if while the elements of civil Liberty which were i Man of every right which Belor it is even to the introduced at the very nuo ment when the footstep a Lave.

If the world has Ever presented evidence of the valor of the Soldier the fortitude of men the suffering which the tinman system is capable of enduring that evidence is found in its most striking character in the history of that eventful struggle Between freemen contending for Freedom against the cruel warfare of a foreign adversary. The want of ammunition frequently presenting the most embarrassing difficulty the want of food often threatening what tie Arm of the foe had failed to accomplish the want of Means to procure it still adding to the distress with enough of defeat to create despair in the in ind of a Napoleon but with enough of Victory to give Hope to the heart of an american that feeble army for years sustained themselves against it might of those who fought Bene Aib the Flag of our country s oppressor and at length secured the Freedom for which Fiey toiled. Would you know More of its history it is written in the undying Fame of one who As a Soldier was victorious yet As a statesman Able not ambitious As a Patriot without a blemish As a Christian without reproach As a Man beloved by his country admired by the world. It is written in the bravery of Marion the Noble daring of Putnam the skill and intrepidity of Greene the deed of those who fell and the Brilliant achievements of a Iasi of heroes flu it gained the goal they sought and have gone to their rest. Liberty acquired it next became necessary to devise Means of Quot or its preservation and the adoption f flee Constitution after the insufficiency of the articles of confederation Foi the purposes of government had been fully tested furnishes the most satisfactory evidence that they who Hail fought for Freedom were not unworthy a if its blessings. For Duvid at a period when the line of distinction Between the rights of individual Stales and those of the conf Leracy was but feebly marked it required no Ordinary strength of mind to prepare such a plan of government As would conciliate the feel pigs of All yet interfere with the rights of none.

Circumstances May occur which demand the prompt exercise of authority but War cannot believe that there exists any nation so reckless of the lives Aryl fortunes of her people As to refuse to make ample reparation for wrong rather than engage in a conflict which would Promise them nothing but defeat and disgrace.
