I Prtra, 2:17" Honor all men."
Tbe omphalic pulnt ol tills Injunction lies In tbe
vrordnft. Tbere Is little need ol express cummand
to secure thu giving of honor to some men. Among,
every people, there are individuals to whom admira
tion nnd reverence are- freely rendered. Military
successes are everywhere rewarded wllh popular
honor. The more cultivated communities pay es
teem also to those vt ho are rtnlucnt Iifatt, literature,
science, or works of philanthropy. Erery nation
lias its heroes, men whose brilliant qualities or val
uable services hare caused their tmuies to bo enrolled
In the temple of national fame. Hem worship Is
not confined to any one people or historic period.
Universally, there is a disposition "to render honor
to particular Individuals, the choice and master
spirits ol present aud pist times. But the direction
to "honor all men" looks to sotnethlni; very differ
ent from that which is Instinctively practiced In the
world. The reverence paid to particular individuals
Is paid bt cause they excel In some Valued qualities.
They are distinguished by talent, pron ess,tlearnin,
or virtue. But the renderimr of honor to a few on
such grounds, is not Inconsistent with contemptu
ous feeling toward the mass of men. Il Is, in fact,
olten seen that thtise nbo arc most enthusiastic In
their estimation ol certain Individuals, at the same
tiiuedespisemust heartily thebulkof mankind. They
prostrate themselves with almost idolatrous rever
euce before the special objects of repaid, then turn
and trample on the .undistinguished multitude. At
the basis of tbe precept before us, there must be
Ideas and principles very different from those on
which men commonly form their eslimatc of human
north. If honor la due to alt men, it must be upon
the ground of qualities and characteristics hat be
long to all tbe members of our race. Tbere mu&
be a certain value and dignity pertaining lu men
fclmply by tirluc of their humanity. What are tbe
grounds of tbe honor required for ail, irrespective
of race or condition, of intellectual qualities or
moral character? Tbe answer to this Inquiry may
lead to thoughts useful and appropriate to the occa
sion which brings us together to-day.
Tbe idea that there is a worth Inherent in man as
man, is distinctively a Christian idea. The origin
of it Is that divine re veli.l Ion which makes known
with clearness and certainty hutnuu character, the
relations of man to his Creator, and his destiny as
an immnrlal creature. Heathen nations have always
regarded the multitude with contempt. The com
mon people were regarded hy the eminent few as a
mass of rude malcrlal, valuable only as it was
serviceable to their convenience or ambition. They
who could might use, aisd in the using ruthlessly
destroy it. But Ctiristidtiil introduced a different.
sentiment. It declaies tbe essential equality of men,
since they are all the offspring' oKa Father who
"hath made of one blood all nations,'' and who is
"iiocspectcrof personS." The points ol likeness
hetw en men are shown to be far more numerous
and Important than the points of difference. We
learn that every man has certain qualities and ca
pacities that demand for him honorable regard. A
escrcdnt-ss ii vests him on the score of his member
ship in '.he race. Whether be be white or black,
learned of Ignorant, whether be be the exemplar of
virluAir the slave of vice, he is entitled to he held
In value, simply lit cause he is a man. Let us note
some of the facts that Constitute this title.
One claim to honor lor all men is grounded upon
tbe facts of human origin. Man is not meiely the
handinorkot God, as are the brutes and ull sense
less things, hut be was made lu the.iinage ol the
Crealor. There was a certain likeliest, to tbe divine
Author of bis being that crowned hlui with a sur
passing glory. Some of our modern philosophers
are ready to strip human natureof thisglory. They
would have us believe that man is only tbe last de
velopment from successive orders ol animals, each
of nhich led by natural evolution to the next grude;
In other words, that men are only a higher species
of apes. But we will still hold fast to the enuobllnf
truths which the Scriptures make known tons r.
siK'cling our creation. By special. act of the Al
mighty man vas made, made a little lower than
the angels, made with capacities of knowledge and
of love, by which he might be united to his Crealor
in a near communion and feilowehlp. He may be
come even a partaker of the dlv'n v nature. These
original honcrs have been sadly impaired h the es
trangement ol man from his Maker. But tbe divine
image stamped upon him at the beginning has nut
been tfljccd. Humanity Is a ruin, hut there Is a
grandeur even in the ruin which bespeaks the mag
nificence of the original structure. The travtlir,
visiting the spot where tbe old EgypliaB city of
Thebes once stood, finds scattered remnants of the
former splendor of the hundred-gated city. At one
place there may be a stalel) column, all that remains
of a grand temple; at another spot are vast blocks
of carved stone, half t oveiVd by ihe drifting sands;
and in the midst of the plain" may bo a.gjgaijjie
slatue. seeming lo keep through the slowly passing
centuries watch ' and" ward over the desolation.
Thougbscautr aud defaced, bow suggestive are such
ruins. Their majestic proportions and the wide
spaces that separate different parts, tell of the great
ness of the city of which they are tbe sad memo
rial). So tbere are traces of the original dignity of
man to be seen even in the lowest debasement to
which any portion of the' race has fallen. Even the
violence and Ingenuity of bis wickedness show n bat
noble endowments have been perverted. Although
tbe present condition ol man Is far below what It
was Intended tobe, yet there Is that in him now
which marks him the child of God.
The honor derived from his hiodj origin belotigs0r ,he rebellion, and now, more recently, the state
to everv hrjman being. There is not one so low In
capacity, so nndevcloped, or so vile, that be may
not, if he will, look up and claim kinship with the
majesty of Heaven. The-rnembera of the race have
one lineage. A certain nobilily is their birthright,
for tbry are be children of the King. He acknowl.
edges their claim, and encourages the Weakest and
meanest to look up to Him and say, "Our Father."
Another consideration showing the essential
worth of all men, la tbe fact that every human being
has the capacity of development without limit, and
at the same time is endowed with Immortality.
This Is a prominent point of difference between
man and all lower creatures. However rnde and ig-
norant be may be, tbere are latent, powers and ca
pacities that may he drawn fnrth and cultivated to
any conceivable extent. Take the rare that stands
foremost for Intelligence, virtue, and power; trace
back a little way its history, and it will be fouod ex
isting In a rude and low condition. Tbe Individuals
who are the glory of onr humanity, the grandeur of
whose souls renews onr faith in the God like nature
of man, are the bright, consummate flower evolved
from a rude stock by the culture of successive gen
erations. Every human soul contains the germs of
whatever has appeared greatest and brightest in any
one of the race. Tbe universal sympathies of a
Sbakspeare, tbe profound thought of a Plato, tbe
energy of a apoIeon,al exist in rudiment lu tbej
aiui,uarKminaoi tor noitentoi. x or tuereare evert
here some elements of thought arid affection, and
power of will, and these are by their nature -expansive;
they might, under fi "Hr circumstances,
and with sufficient range of i ' pment, reach any
height to whleb man baa asccuu:d.
Remember, now, in connection with this fact,
that all men are destined to immortality, that
before each stretches an endless life. What then
may not any human being become? What knowl
edge, what mlxht ef intellect, what range and depth
of feeling may not be developed In any human
heirs In the ages through which be shall exist.
We value things small and rude IT we know
them to be the beginnings of tbe vast and splendid.
The grandeur to which" they are to arrive throws
back a glory on their present state. . ; ?
Every human being should be regarded with a.
feeling of respect and reverence because be has great
capacities, undeveloped Clements that In some pe
riod of his existence may lie brought out and culti
vated so that be may surpass those who now are
most revered. The noblest of material works

Let one more fact be brought to mtndthat further
evinces the.sacredness of humanity, that Is, the high
estimate of man's worth which God displays. He
Is the object of a Providential care that never remits
watchlulness and Ihe recipient of a bounty that
spares no benefactions. For him tbe earth has been
prepared and furnished with its Inexhaustible storeof
means for his delight a'nd development. For him the
world of nature has been called into existence, and
Its varied processes are for him sustained. The Cre
ator administers und directs Ihe vast aud complicat
ed system of the universe In his interest causing all
powers and Influences so'tn work together as may
best serve his advantage. Tbe earth yields for him
its bounty and the heavens shed blessings ou his
The honor God puis npou man by gmfigjl
lordship over nature and by making him the ohjei
of his Providential care is limited to no class or con
dition. It belongs to man by virtue of bis humanity.
Still more significant If tbe value for which his
Creator holds him is the cost paid for his redemp
tion. This consideration is one of much weigh, tbutl
do not enlarge upon It as it is moic familiar to our
thoughts, aud a fcequent topic of separate discourse.
I have endeavored to represent some of th. facts per
taining to human nature which show that honor Is
due to all men, that a vahjeand eveu sacredness be
longs to thefin, he their condition and character
what they may. Since they are men they bear tbe
ttaccs of a divine likeness, thcy.have the germs and

This idea of the jacredncss of humanity involves
suggestions of gratitude and duty. We ought to
recognise with thankful satisfaction the progress in
the world of tbe sentiment of respect for humanity.
There Is a better appreciation of the worth of man
as man irrespective ef circumstances or character.
Do you ask foPthe evidences of this ! See them In
tbe growing sympathy between nations and races,
and in the tendency toward uuion hetweenshitherto
severed portions ol kindred peoples. See also tbo
growth of a broad sentiment of philanthropy which
seeks tbe reformation of the vicious, and cxteudscarc
to the helpless, a philaStbropy which regards none
wearing a human form as too degraded or miserable
to be Ibe objects or kindly sympathy and aid. Tbo
art i Hoi Jl barriers between men are slowly crum
bling; the disabilities resting on classes are being
lifted. The great convulsions that shake tbe na
tions are weakening or casting down some of those
systems of 'ecclcshv-tical and civil despotism
which have degraded and dishonored men.' The
eveuts now passing before our eyes in the old
world have manifest tendencies iu this dlrectlou.
There are silent forces also, more mighty than wars
or revolutions working to liko ends. Yes, -although
the just apprehension of the worth and dignity of
human nature is far from entire prevalence, it is
gnlningground. There is a wider recognition of the
essential facredness of humanity. The ties of hu
man 'brotherhood are more and more strongly felt.
Nowhere Ijas this progress been more manifest
than In that laud whicli'to many of us Is tbe laud of
our nativity aim the object of our patriotic affection.
As iu common with bur American brethren we
pay our thanks and worship before God. It well be
comes ns to remember what great advances have In
his Providence been wrought forns. The truth of
the essential equality of men was acknowledged In
the earliest asSerlion of political principles. But a
sad contradiction existed while there stood nnder
the protection of tbe state aminstitutlon which In
trie highest degree wronged a class of men and dis
honored humanity nt large. That Institution has
passed away uith the shock of a disturbance ujndcr
which the land still seems to rock and heave. Ter
rible as weyo tiie sorrows that came upon flic nation,
heavy as Is the burden still carried, it will yet be ac
knowledged, whcii the dishonor to manhood lnvolv
ul In the crime is jusTly felt, that the retribution was
righteous. The downfall of slavery was an Im
mense gain bul a furthrrstep was necessary In order
to tho vindication of tbe wronged race so far as it
can be vindicated by constitutions and laws. .That
step has been accomplished by tbe incorparation In
to the fundamental Instrument of government of
the provision that no man shall be excluded from
thvr rights of-cttlzensblpjOn occbuntSjf race, color
or. previous condition of servitude: Thanks be to
God for so great a victory won for the cause of hu
manity. It remains now for public sentiment to
come up to the standard fixed In law, that social
bans be removed from erery class, and a universal
sympathy and fellowship be cultivated.
How marked, In the series i of'events lately trans-
piriiiL' In tire Republic hare been tbe workings of &
retribute and acompensatlng Providence. Who, even
of the most extravagant hope, would have dared
to anticipate such changes as have taken place?
Tbe bondmari'h'os become a citizen. Slave marts
have been converted into places' of instruction for
those whom but just now it was a civil crime
to teach. A member of the despised nice occupies
in tbe Senate the seat of tbe foremost representative
in which the great conspiracy against human rights
was most warmly fostered and where tbe first overt
actsf treason were committed comes forward In
support of those who uphold tbe principles of
equal freedom, with a majority vote of tens of
thousands cast by the bands of frcedmen. The very
people who bad been destined to perpetnal servi
tude sit now in legislative assemblies and hold a
TmK further indication of tbe advance gained by.
the sentiment of regatd for man, that a more hu
mane policy has been attempted in the dealings of
tbe American Government with tbe aborigines of
tbe western territories, a race whose wrongs fill one
of the darkest, pages of American history. A'volce
has been beard in high places protecting against
that ferocions sentiment which clamors for the ex
termination of the red men as if they were wild
beasts or venomous reptiles. Tbe attempt to treat
them as men, on principles of justice and philan
thropy may for the present be orerborne by that
spirit of contempt, cruelty and avarice which here
tofore bar ruled. But it Js something thai thought
has been taken of their rights as men. If corres
ponding action Is now defeated, tbe better senti
ment of the age will yet demand and enforce its
successful rtneif al.
These moral gains wherever they are noted ought"
to p,Te a ratefal satisfaction. As men we should
rejoice with thanksgiving whenever any portion of
our race makes a step forward or comes Into a recog.
nltion of tbe universal right to Justice and honor.
Especially those of ns who are Americans ought to

borne, and consttnted a weakness under which we7
bad well nigh fallen. The glory and strength of the
Republic will be according to the consistent fidelity
with which that law Is fulfilled. It seems to be the
design of Providence that the New World should be
tbe seat of a cation built up from elements con

The choice and costly product was the Pilgrim
Fathers, who are to be accounted tbe true founders
of the State, for it has been their principles which
have given it vitality and form. On this day of a
devout observance received from them, let ns not

Tbe original stock was allowed ta take root and
gain strength. Into it have been grafted scions
from every land. Europe has long been pouring, in
steady stream, her mingled thousands on the eastern
shores of the continent, and now more raceatly, the
oldest Empire begins to overflow upon the western
coast. Tbe blood of all races and peoples mingles
in the file-currents of tbe nation. It Is well that It
should be so. There Is a place and a Providential
mission for all. Each will contribute some peculiar
clement for the development of the nation. All will
conspire to build up that etiucture, as ytt only bo

Let another brief observation conclude this dis
course. We honor men by cherishing a universal
human sympathy. Recognizing the intrinsic value
or men nnder all conditions, and their capablltty'bf
development, however rude their state, we ought to
feci as a personal wrong whatever holds in degrada.
Hon any clsss of men, or limits their opportunities
to.rise to a higher range of life. "We are members
one of auother." The abasement or any portion of
tbe race Is a dishonor to our common humanity. In
its elevation we all rise. It ought to be our con
cern, therefore, to promote the advancement cf our
fellow beings. Those who, by favor of Providence,
have enjoyed advantages and opportunities of cul
ture, ought to beware that they do npt look with
contempt upon thoso of other racesf classes, and
conditions. If brought into connection and contact
with those of a-Iower grade, there la a special obli
gation to seek their elevation. A nobler work, or
one more acceptable to God, can not be ptrformef"
