Psalm 147:13. " For he hath strengthened
the burs of thy gates ; be hsth blessed thy child
ren within thee."
Augmented strength for security and defence,
uud multiplied blessings upon successive genera
tions are the reasons assigned here for national
praire to the Lord. Assembled to-duy by pro
claiuaiiun of the President ol the United dlule?
for thanksgiving, we may find these reaseu i
abundant (or our praise. The bars of the gaUs
of the free government winch our fjreljthers set
up Cod has strengthened, uud be has poured a
century of blessings upou their children.
Cur thoughts to-day, naturally enough, are ou
the ceuiury.uiore tliau on tbe single year. The
proclamation itself inuKei this, uol merely
an annual but a ceulennial Ibunksgiruig.
The fekst to which wo sit down with glad heuru
is spread witli Hie fruits ofu huodred years.
'I be unparalleled privileges aud opportuui
lies, the independent progressive iile, the open
avenues of industry and trade, the eularged gen
eiul welfare, the uaiioual greatness in which
every citizen of the Lulled Stales may feel that
be has a lull measure of blessings, are all Ut
separably connected with the progress ami suc
OBsd that Cod has giveu our couulry duriug the
hundred y ears of lis life.
before proceeding to note some of the results
of the century that claim our thanks to-day, it is
proper and fitting that we should make greatful
meuiion of blessings enjoyed in tbis a foreign
laud, which yel is so much like a home luod to
us. For protection freedom security comforts
bounties health, and advanced privileges of civili
zation aud society we owe tbuuks ; and es
pecially lor the boon of reciprocity that the year
has brought to ihia kingdom. Cur great ccuulry
bos opened tier anus to receive this kiugdoin,
uecessanly limited iu resources, into her more
enlarged prosperity, and to make her citizens'
resident here leel still less that they are in u for
eign laud. The mutual regards of the two
countries have been cemented mlo tbe closest of
national relationships. They have said to
each oiher what is mine shall be thine, and
thine ebull be mine ; and such community of
commercial iuteresls, wid doubtless curry wilh it
yet closer lies of good will und friendship. We
give thanks for this lo day.
Wliiu Cod made his wonderful promise of in
crease and great nationality to tbe pilgrim
Abraham, the grandest purl of it was, thai iu
him all the uulious of the earth should bo bless
ed. Cod built him up into a great nation, not
lo the detriment or for the envy, but to the
welfare aud for the joy of all the world. So our
best gratitude to-day is. that the great nation
thul Cud has built up from ibose pilgrims to the
wiUs ol America, stands forth as a blessing lo
Ibe world. While we clearly see uud thankfully
own the divine bund iu our owo country's Mo
tor)', in her first settlement, her struggles and
conflicts, and msrvelous progress, yet we forget
not that the whole earth is the Lord's, und thai
what he does for any one people he does in the
interests of all. Every naiiou that pushes
forward in the march of progresss. thul opens
out new paths for the weary struggling race lo
go forward in, tbal gives development lo some
priuciple lor tbe euuouragcmeut, aud hope of
mankind, may well invite tbe wbole world lo
share iu its gratitude. Vouoe America has
achieved no success in freedom and self-government,
and has made no progress, that the whole
earth muy not bo thankful for. Il is iu recogni
tion of this, and not lo selfish competing pride,
thai tbe nations' of the world have brought their
choicest things, in this centennial year, and laid
them us il were us thank offeriug on tbe altar of
American liberty. It is peculiarly Citing, that
in Ibis year that celebrates its majority, ull the
world should bring their best things to tbe coon
try, that bos been such a blessing to the world.
Tbe Cenleuuial fair at Philadelphia is not so much
an exhibition, us it is tbe world's expression of
hearty good will and joy in tbe unenvied progress
of our country. It is in noble acknowledgement
of the place America holds in the world's ad
vancing nun eh. Tile fraud success of that ex
position but typifies the success of the century
itself. It is but a specimen fruit of what the
century bas produced. The century itself is the
vastly grander success and greater marvel. We
thank Cud ior it. And we thank Cod for tbe
hundred years of life that be has giveu the young
yet greet republic. It is a hundred years lo
wonder over sod to be gratclul for. If not an
other century of life is added to our country we
thank bun lor this one. if America should sink
helped to establish under currents of sympathy
between those nations, and ber clearer ideas of
civil rights have taught them to be more free in
the interchange of boih thoughts and things.

the whole world is smoking. No nation has been

She bis been to tbe hurl of uone. Her lighl has

Kogland herself is greater and grander and richer
as u nation to day than .-be would have been, had
tbellnited .States coutiuued weak enough to lie
We knew not bow to tell the story of Ameri
ca'! ptogreie and growth.- Tu words grow irtte
on our lips, and we have almost lost the means or
measuring ibeni. We fail to realize how swift
we have ruu, or how far we have gone, because
everybody else bas been running with us. Ships
sail.ng side by side, to themselves, scarcely seem
to oiove. If tbe rest of the world had stood sull
then we could easily see bow lur America had
advanced, but the civilized nations generally
have been ou the swill march, and are aliuusl
immeasurably ahead of where they were u hun
dred yean ago. 11 youthful Ameiicu al her ma
jority had even coins up us a nation to where
Ihs) old nation, were ut her bfrth, il would liuve
been a marvelous progress. Uut those old
nations have accelerated their speed uud multi
plied their greatness many luues since then, aud
il ii to the head ol their advancing columns that
America has come. To-day in power, in influ
ence, in resources, in the real eleiueuts of
national strength anr1 greatuets, she stands iu the
front rank with the old uud stiff growing nations.
1 his is the more surorieiug il we remember her
weakness poverty and doubt when she assumed the many names that sbe can cherish and renter
ualiouulity. Il was with great pangs and throes
that the republic was brought even lo the birth ;
and when burn she was n eak loose jointed child,
over the lite of which the most patriotic mid
wifes slood iu doubl. Uucerluinlies and sutler
lugs and desperute conflict marked ber begiuing.
She had few industries, was debt burdened, uud
puverly strickeu. Necessity ulene united the
colonies that had beeu settle! under very differ,
eut auspices. Tbey had lo feet their wuy luwurJ
a true union, and solid basis of self goveruuieul.
i'hey had uu precedeut lu fulluw, uud it was nut
unlil the federal cuuslituliun was frumeii and
signed eleveu years alter the declaration ol inde
pendence, that eveu Franklin ceused lo doubt
whether America's sun still ou the horizon, was
a risiug or u selliug suu iJ.it from such a strug
gling and uncerluiu begmuing bow marvelous
and rapid bas been Ihe growth.
As one of the gruud achievements of the cen
tury we can note America's mastery of her own
broad domain. Al fit... ihe wilderness was not
among the least of her difficulties, ll was some
thing lor her to buttle with and conquer. The
wilds that stretched uwuy to the west wero then
almost as foruudublo us those uf Africa now ap
pear. Tbe riven were barriers, lhu mounlHius
were hard lo cross, the vail miles of loresls
in special callings, but iu her progressive citizens
generally. T-ke it from top to botloin, no na
tion ever had a body of citizens that could com
pare wilh hers. She lifts up ber common men
to free and growing manhood. She gives lo all
a stimulus to persanal improvement. She ex
pects every citizen lo be a growing man. Tbe
human race, we know, is fallen. Crimes uud
corruption are everywhere. The grading of
society is Irom bod to worse all over the earth.
But how much has America done lo make every
man feel that he has a chance, that he cun rise,
that though horn in humblest circumstances he
may come to highest position and influence. She
has done much lo make ibe world feel that a
man's honor is not iu bis family, or birth, or
caste, but in his worth. 't hrough ber iuttuence
many a shackle of oppression has been broken,
and multitudes have been emancipated from Ihe
contempt of those who assumed lu be their bel
ters. It doubtless still seems strange to the old
monarchies, that a man who would not even be
received into their aristocratic circled should be
taken np and made the ruler of so great a na
tion. 'I hey ran hardly give equal place in dig
nity and greatness with themselves lo a nation
that takes one Irom uniong the common people
one that has been a rail-splitter, a tailor, or a
were lo be lulled, tbe savage was in the woods, farmer's boy, and clothes him with such sublime
Pioueeriug was full ol hardships uud perils. 'I he
colonlies hail occupied uud peopled but a narrow
strip on the Atlantic shore. When independence
was gamed the nation scarcely had looinold be
yond the Alegauies. A few years before, when
Wushingloii marched bis few troops from Vir
ginia to Fort Liu Lluesue or Pittsburg il was u
heroic and feurlul struggle wilh rivets, forests,
mountains and savages. Hut look now over thu
broad continent Iroiu oceau to oue.iu, and see
how complete the mastery is. There are no
rivers iu the wuy, DO mure mountain to bd
dreuded, no more forests to be fought as foes.
The wbole lund is conquered. Tbreo hundred
thousand square miles of it are in farms. Tbe
rivers and streams are loo few for the commerce
aud factories. Forests are iu such demaud, that
they command a price ; and men go bunting
to find more mountain.- in which there is gold.
The whole breath ol the continent is richly min
istering lo Ihe uulion's prosperity wealth uud
power. Augustus l 'x'-ar bad his triumph in
Koine, because in long cuiupuigus be al length
marched his warlike legions lo the British sea, a
lew Luudred miles, uud years after Agricola gol
himself a name by discovering that Britain was
au islaud. America iu about as short a lime has
march bur peaceful legions of farmers and ur
tisians and tradesmen, uud school teachers from
ocean to ocean. As mile stones of ber march
over ull the breadth aud length uf the vast con
tinent, she bas set up great cities, uud she is
ready on every side to make new territory suc
cumb aud bloom uuder her mighty industry. She
bas multiplied by three the number of ber stales,
all the added ones being much larger than most
of tbe original thirteen. She has multiplied her
popuiaiiuu over thirteen times, as many limes
us sbe had slates to begin wilh. To cover un
area -o vast, in bo short a time, with a solid
stroog great nationality is a result as amoziug
as il is unparalleled.
How greatly also has the life of the people been
enriched und filled with blessiugs. How slow
uiuifistrucv. bat Brainier result ol the ceo
tury is there than this steady onwurd murch in
free manhood. We give thank-t that our coun
try has graodly gone Ibrward in this very direc
tion which Dat revolutionary forefathers marked
out, and towards which our pilgrim forefathers,
before ihem. beat their steps.
And how great a matter for thanksgiving is
it, that our couutry thus lur has not failed of
any uf the great ends thai she has sought. She
has bud trials and troublesome questions to deal
wilh. Shd has had financial distresses and per
plexing political difficulties. Sbe lias bad bloody
devastating wars. But evory time sbe bus come
forlh out of her trials and conflicts wiser and
stronger. In every war she has gained Ihe end
lor which she fought. In that of 1812 she se
cured her rights as a neutral trading with billi
gerents; and commerce ever since has been coo
ducted on the principles for which she then
contended. In tbe late great sad civil war in
which she poured out so much blood or her
noble sons and suffered such devastutiou und in
curred such burden of debt, she gained all lor
which sbe fought eo long and bitterly. Tbe
Union was saved. The slave wus freed. The
power of free constitutional governmeut to up
hold its authority was maintained, und tbo great
Republic was held to its grand mission on the
eurlb. The great question iu regard lo America
has been can a government whose sucrednees
und authority are in a written constitution la
stead ol personal royalty maintain ilselt ? la
Ibis respect the nation has been true to its
principles, true to its origin, true to itself from
the beginning. Its government has undergone
no revulution or charge. Its constitution bas
been unaltered except in two or three amend
ments to bring it more in accord with the real
spirit of tbe instrument itself. Says a recent
writer: "Among ull the lessons which the
world has learned from tbe progress of Ibe
American people, none are of greater value than
this, that government, by written cnnsMlutlons,
feel as it we could hardly crowd ourselves back
into it. Most of us would have to wear the
home spun, aud borne made soil. Our dinner
would have lo be cooked in the open fire place
or brick oven. The iron cook stove would not
be found iu the kitchen for it was not. For fire
itself we would bare to me the tioder or run
to a neighbor's lor a shovel of coals. Xo
friction match would be at band. Xo hyd
rant would be in the house not even a pomp
would be in the well. In place uf kerosene and
tbe beautiful lamp, or tbe gas jet. the tallow
cundle would be the best that we could do for
light. We would miss thousunds of handy little
articles, aud our homes also would be bare of
much that is attractive in them now. Few
ornaments would be seen. The magazine and
periodical would not abound on our tables, bring
ing us into sympathy with the wide world of
letters We could ill down once a week und
read the local news in one ol the thirty seven
little dingy newspapers that were then printed in
our country. The great daily sheets, loaded, by
lightning, with news from everywhere, and flying
from mammoth steam presses many times faster
than the seconds fly from the hand of time,
would not lie waiting at everyone's door beforo
he was up iu the morning. A few solid roughly
printed and coarsely bound books would be
within our reach, instead of the present almost
endless variety ol artistically and elegantly made
volumes in fiction, science, literature and religion.
If we wanted to go Irom Now York lo Phila
delphia we coold take the lumbering wagon
advertised in a Xew York paper at the lime as
the Lightning Express, to go through in two
to-day, we would thank him for what has beeu j lays, instead of, as now, tbe thronged balf-bour
and unenterprising und narrow in its range would stroB enough to restrain nutnun passions in
life a hundred years ago seem to us. We would ' lime3 of greatest excitement, and, at the same
duoe, for the results achieved fur tbe discoveries
and inventions made and lor tbe hopes and pro
gress to which the world has been awakened. In
the great principles of self-goveroinenl. in the
education and elevation of the manes, in a free
Christianity, in personal thrift, in the victorious
power of mind over matter, in the production ol
noble men, in genuine patriotism, in voluntary
sacrifices endured for right and freedom and
good government, the United Stales, if they
should not last another year, would not cease to
be in inspiration to the world. Other nations
would still feel their influence and be the better
It is a grand sign of tbe yet better days
coming, that Ihe nations are getting so much
good from each other, and that oue io quickly
takes ap into itself whatever of good is de
veloped in another. The prosperity of one ia
mors and more overflowing into others. Capitol
is flowing across their boundaries almost as freely
as it flows wilbic them. Commerce and quick
communication ore binding them together in
common interest, They take op each others
inventions and prosper by them. They help
Irnin of parlor cars, that flies the distance io a
couple ol hours. Or if we wished to go to Albany
we could spend a wearisome week on a lltllo
sloop, instead of lounging and resting four hours
in an Aladin't floating palace. There wonld be
no magnificient steam-ships running with the
regularity ol time itself, in which we. with the
thousands of others, could make pleasure trips
across the octal and around tba world. If the
crazy desire should seize us to look upon the
Father of Waters, or tbe fabled rocky moun
tains, we cjuld muke our will, strike out into
the wilds, and doubt if we should live long
enough lo reach borne again, instead of being
whirled past fine farms, peaceful homei, and
great cities while we sleep and wake. In tut
we would have to wait tweaty-seven years, or
nearly a third of the century, beforo we coold
cross the Mississippi without going into foreign
territory. The very toil of inch stales as Louisi
ana, Arkansas. Missouri. Iowa and all welt ol
them, did Dot become oora until seventy-three
years ago. Instead of sending a message of sorrow
or joy to distant friend,, or effecting important
commercial exchange by an iaitaataneoui flash
each other keep step in tbe Heady march ol along tbe wire, we would h ive lo send by slow
progress. And whatever clogs the channels of
trade i one is felt by the others. Tbe war or
famine or fire that hurts one is a drain on tbe
others. Hard times like tidal waves flow around
the world from land to land. The light that
shines in Ibe weal scatters darkness in tbe east.
And so ia spite of the prejudices of race, and old
jealousies, the nations ore becoming more help
ers, than rivals of each other. This is one of
grand outcomes of tbe centary, and in this
America has been a leading influence. She bos
given wings to commerce. She bas given faith
and coarage to enterprise. She his evoked (be
spirit of travel, of encoded exploration, or colo
nization, and of rapid and general intercommu
nication. Sbe bas done macb for the ming
ling of races, macb to make mon everywhere leel
that their field is the world. Her thousands of
immigrants coming from different nations have
coaner or yet slower nail at li;gh poetags. We
almost wonder how the world moved at all with
out the railroad, and (learner, and telegraph,
for the two latter of which the world ii indebted
IB America, uod of the former of wbieh ihe ha.
now oi many mtlei, as there were in all tbe world
twenty-five years ago. Miles enough of railroad
she bai to reach .three limes around tbe earth,
with a good lized snitch at the eod.
And what shall we say of tbe almost camber
lees inventions that have laktn so much of the
tedioasneie and drudgery out of It'll, aod that
have multiplied the working force of man so
many times, aod that luru oal so cheaply soon
B multiplicity of usefol and beautiful things, that

Inventive genius has taken hold of every indus-
lune, mobile enough to be compatible with true
Nor is tho late loud cry of corruption and job
bery so threatening to our free government as
the political diu would seem to indicate. Care
lul evidence shows that the country has not
grown worse in Ibis respect. In her earlier days
her judges and legislators accepted perquisites
and considerations that they wonld not dare ac
cept in these days. Helpers lo contracts and
grants look pay then more and more openly,
than now. During the revolution one of tbe
most trying and discouraging things was the
frauds in contracts, horse flesh instead of beef,
barrels half filled, spoiled provisions, new leaky
worthless bouts, etc. Washington writes to
Heed, " Such dearth of public spirit, and such
want of virtue, inch slock jobbery, and fertility
in all low arts lo obtain advantage of one kind
or another in Ibis , great change of military
arrangements I never saw before, and I pray
Cod's mercy that I may never witness again."
The fraod is not mure, but the stuodard is higher.
Reforms have como to be ralying cries since
Iben. Iu many things a man would be con
demned now. for what would not seriously
affect his standing then, There was no move
ment in temperance then. Now it is a great
reform qiieitioo over Ibe whole couDtry. Even
party spirit runs not 90 high as il did in earlier
days. There is lelt to be more federal power,
more oneness of oaliooality, and less of sectional
rights in tbe government than was formerly felt.
Nor has religion Ion ground in the century.
Nay, never belore has Christianity made ao great
Kogreis. Says Secretary Clark, ia his paper
fore the American Board at Hertford : The
outlook for Christianity a hundred rears since
wus certainly dreary enough. The sciences, the
philosophy, Ibe culture of the age, were all
against it. Its aggressive power seemed reduced
to a minimum. Tbe Protestantism of tbe Re
formation bad long since apeol its force. In
Croat Britain the movement inaugurated by
Whitfield and the Wetleya Was yet ia its in
fancy . and proleelaot Christians generally shrank
back, in Fburisaie prida, or indifference, from
the frightful spectra that loomed up ia France.
In lhu couutry whatever of Christian life tbeie
was, found ample exercise in tbe struggle for
Hut what a change since then. Sweeping and
blessed revivals of religion almost completely
iwept oat tbe old forms uf French infidelity,
then to lashionable. Christian truth bas come
to the front in philosophy. ThBre bos been a
wonderful increase in Christian activity, aod ia
Cbriilian fraternity aod liberally. The Ipint of
Christ is ia the lite of men more. Christianity
new uke bold pf thi lime and of toe age (or
more (bin il did then. ll is since then that Che
great mi .sugary organizations have been formed
aud Christianity bas become aggressive along
tbe whole line. Heathen nations are receiving
the light, some have been Christianized. In
oor owo country the growth of Christianity hoi
very much ouuped the great growth of popola
uoa. At toe begionlng of the centary there
was only one church for every seventeen hon
ored people, but now with oaf forty millions of
people tho censa shows a charcb for every five
habdred and thirty persons. From 1850 to 1S70
the increase io population was sixty per ceoL,
while tbe increase in cborebes was niu'liy pur
cent. 1 bey were nearly doubled in tweoly
yean. For this we may well give thanks to-day.
ll is oar country's best hope.
This year i one from which we look not only
into tbe past but into tbe lotore. What will the
next centary bet What will it da for oar
country aod for tbe world! Will progree go
on accelerating as in Ibe on past? What
try, and every material. It has touched with its
magic influence little things ai well us great. It
facilitates manufactures io cotton, aod wool, and
silk, and iron, and wood, and robber, and leather,
and almoat everything to soch an extent, and in
each great as well as little things that the very
trades, and arts, and common modes of life have
been revolutionized. It is over (lie machine doing
his handiwork that tbe skilled mechanic now
mostly presides, and we hardly lift a hood for
any thing that ia not helped by some convenient
contrivance. Is it strauge thai with such helps
and incentives America should now be produc
ing uud utilizing more iron aod cotton and coal
ai'id some of tbe precious aielals than tbe woofs
world was using a hundred years ago? But we
cannot dwell longer on Ihis material progress.
There are other result, of the century, for
which we may have even a higher gratitude. I
can only call attention to some of them.
America's best producl has eo; been wbeat or
gold or steamboats or telegraphs but men. She
is covering her broad dominion wilh irue free
men, intelligent, educated, qualified to act io
liberty. She has produced patriots, statesmen,
generals, orators. scientists, banisters, physicians,
preachers, scholurs, merchants, uod mechanics
whom Ibe world will not torgei. She has bud a
pulpit of anpurallelled educating elevating, re
viving and purifying power. She has had a
bench und bar thai have been to ber houor. not
only for their ability bat in giving practical
clearness to the .principles ol justice. In syste
matizing 1 1 vs. and iu promoting ihe authorita
tive force of written constitutions. Sbe has
raised up a vast army uf the noblest educators.
In the pare sciences which have risen into such
prominence during the cenlory, her sous have
done their part, and in ihe practical arts far more
than their part. Bat her chief elory is not in
marvellous inventions doubtless there will be !
What great questions in science, in geology,
biology, astronomy, political economy, will be
settled ! What adjust ments between labor and
capital will be effected 1 What conquests for
Christ will he made I What advincement there
probable will be in international comity and
fraternity ! Japan and China may take their
places in tbe Christian brotherhood of nations.
Africa herself amy be all mapped with railroads
and beautified with thousands of church spires.
And in America herself, what population, what
wealth, what new industries, what new comfort
and elegancies of life, what grentnees. what re
form will there be ! Happy the boy to-day who
bull live to he a honored years old ! flow
grand the waichwonls that the ions of liberty
i should take up at tbe opening of this new century .
t Some of these watchword should be. manhood
', for man, freedom for all, honesty in everything.
purity in public as well as in private lire, rrlurm
in morals and in civil service, troth in science,
in businese. in religion, in all things, and the
