J launched a bark on Fate's- deep tide
A frail nnd fluttering toy,
Hut freighted with a thousand dreams
Of beauty and of joy.
Ah me ! it found no friend in them
The wave the sky the gale
Though Love enraptured took the helm
And Hope unfurled the sail!
And you, who should its pilot be
To whom in fear it flies
Forsake it. on a treacherous sea,
To seek a prouder prize.
Alas for Love ! bewildered child !
He weeps the helm beside,
And Hope has furled her fairy sail,
No longer tempts the tide.
Despair and Pride in silence fling
Its rich freight to the wave,
And now an aimless wreck it floats,
That none would stoop to save.
Celebration at Lexington, July
Notwithstanding the incessant rain, the
Sabbath School pupils and teachers in
connection with the volunteer com pennies,
and citizens ot Milford and Turkevfoot
came pouring in from east and west, north
and south, in wagons ornamented with
evergreens and banners, on foot and on
horse back, until 12 o'clock M. After
dinner the companies were formed into
line; the order of the day was read, the
Sabbath School then formed into the cen
ter, and the citizens in the rear and march
ed to the grove, where the ladies and
scholars were seated, the volunteers occu
pying the right and left wings, the music
on the right of the stand, on appropriate
air was played. The Rev. Air. Rizer,
of Somerset, was then introduced who
addressed the throne of grace, and pro
ceeded to deliver an appropriate and very
interesting address to the Sabbath School.

Somerset July 21st 184G.
Friends and Fellow Citizens:
According to arrangement of your com
mittee, 1 appear before you to say some
thing for the cause of Sabbath School in
struction; and I am truly glad to meet so
large a number of teachers and children
from various sections of this neighbor
hood, assembled to celebrate our national
I need not discourse about the merits
of the system which it has been , thought
proper to have represented here to day,
nor to detain you with a histo ry of its
triumphs, since the day when it? mcmora
ble founder Robert Raikcs, in passing
through the streets of London, and see
ing so many children running wild for
want of moral restraint, conceived the
idea of assembling them together every
Sabbath, tor the purpose of instruction.
Suffice it to say, I believe the Sabbath
School Institution, as it exists in our
country to be essentially connected with
the support of morality, religion and our
republican institutions. Yes, fellow citi
zens, it is identified with our country's
best and dearest interests, and therefore
it is highly proper, in my estimation, for
the friends of this cause to assemble
peacefully and orderly, as you have done
this day, to show their respect for the an
niversary of our national independence.
But says one, what has the Sabbath
School to do with the 4 th of July? I an
swer, a great deal; and I think it can be
made clear and plain to every reflecting
man. Give me your attention then, for
one moment, (for I intend to be quite
brief) and I will endeavor to show some
reason for identifying sabbath school in
struction with the cause of civil liberty.
It is taken for granted that the Bible,
comprising the Old and New Testament
scriptures, which were "given by in
spiration of God," is the basis of all
teaching in the Sabbath School. Now if
it can be demonstrated that this precious
book, is the onlyjrne light of the world
and ihe sheet anchor of our religious and
political hopos, as I think it can be, then
it must follow that, inasmuch as the ri
sing generation will necessarily act accor
dingto their training,sabbath school instruc
tion tends to the preservation and strength
ening of our civil institutions. I would
deem it a waste of time to enter upon an
abstract discussion of this proposition, on
an occasion like the present, and there
fore would simply call your attention to
a few facts, which are themselves the
strongest arguments that can be advanced
on the subject.
I maintain that Christianity, which is
the sum and subirtinee of the whole bible,
or if you please, the Bible itself, is the
"light of the word." Of this fact, I was
forcibly and deeply reminded this morn
ing, whilst on my way to this place I cast
my eyes over the luxuriant meadows and
waving grain fields, which under the fos
tering care of our Republican government
bespeak the wealth and happiness of the
people. To day we feel more than or
dinarily the spirit of liberty animating our
breasts. We give expression before God
and the world, to that patriodck joy which
arises in our bosoms from the conviction
that we are free. But whence comes the
spirit of liberty? Whence comes that
sacred fire that burns so brightly all over
this happy country? ; We may trace, it
firtt to the independence and bravery of
the puritan pilgrims of the Anglo Sajcoir
race, who landed in 1G22 on Plymouth
rock. It was perfectly natural that men
trained in the school of adversity as they
had been, and made acquainted with the
inalianable rights with whichlhcCrcatoi had
endowed them, should spurn the shackle
of tyranny, attempted to be imposed on
them in the unjnst taxation of their colo
nies. But we must go still f ir lrr back
into the past, to trace the progress of the
spirit of lilerty. It is true that Thomas
Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Frank
lin, John Hancock and their illustrious
coadjutors under its hallowed influence
declared these colonics free on the 4 th
of July 177G, and they together with all
the heroes and sages of our American
Revolution arc justly entitled to our ever
lasting gratitude. But there is another
individual, who in the hands of divine
providence paved the way for all that lib
erty which is enjoyed to a greater or less
degree on both sides of the Atlantic. It
was Martin Luther, who in 1517, pro
claimed to the world, that "The Bible is
a sufficient rule of faith, and the right of
private judgment a universal privilege."
That is the principle, Fellow citizens, of
all civil and religious freedom, and it is
very certain that if the Reformation of
the lGth century had -not occurred, the
Declaration of the American Congress on
the 4th of July 177G would not have been
made. . f&
The illustrious men to whom I have
just alluded, derived their "light" from
the bible, and I maintain that every man
who believes this sacred book, must
necessarily adopt their sentiments. I
maintain that no man whose mind is
deeply imbued with the spirit of Christi
anity can be any thing else than a Demo
crat. - But I do not use the term in its
party sense. A Bible Democrat is one
who believes that the people have the
right of governing themselves. If you
read the bible attentively you will find
that the democracy in their primary capa
city sustained Jesus Christ as well
as John the Baptist in their reformatory
labours, for we are told that "ell Jerusa
lem went to hear;" but the Pharasccs and
chief priests, who were aristocratic dem
agogues, so worked the political wires,
that the one was crucified and the other
beheaded. In a short time afterwards,
however, when the sober second thought
of the people could .act, the little stone
cut out of the mountain's brow without
hands, became the wonder of the world.
The British constitution notwithstand
ing its 'Dei Grtaia Rex (By the grace of
God, King) principle, is nevertheless a
liberal one in many respects, and all its
liberty comes from God and the bible.
Look at the present condition of Africa,
excepting a few spots along the coast, of
India, Australia, where the rays of di
vine revelation have as yet but partially
penetrated. How dark, and horrible their
condition, under the baleful influence of
idolatry and superstition! Behold the
bleeding sacrifices of Jugernaut and the
trembling victims of cannibalism! On the
banks of the Ganges, behold woman,
designed to be the ornament of creation,
the slave of barbarism, and forgetful of
maternal ties, the murderess of her oil
spring. Then remember fellow citizens
that you have been reared" amid the
"light"oi the Biblc,& under the influence
of that republicanism, which is its neces
I go a step farthcrjand maintain, that
just in proportion as the sacred volume
is appreciated, read and properly underr
stood; will be the degree of liberty enjoy
ed by any people. In our United States,
under the enlightened influence of reli
gious toleration, Sunday Schools and all
the other institutions of christianiyt, have
rapidly multiplied, and where is there a
country under the broad face of the heav
ens, where people are more secure in their
persons, property and character, and
where there is a greater amount of ration
For a negative illustration of this prin
ciple, look for one moment at, ItaIy,Spain,
Portugal, Austria, Mexico and the South
American States, where the bible, though
acknowledged, is nevertheless a scaled
book: for beyond all contradiction the peo
ple, that is the democracy ,arc forbidden to
As our country is now at war with
Mexico, our attention is particularly, di
rected to that quarter; and it is to be
hoped that the struggle may result in
placing the bible in the hands of that
priest ridden people. With the sacred
volume, appreciated, read, understood and
obeyed, the Mexicans may, yet rise supe
rior to all adversity, and call the An
glo Saxon race their greatest benefactors.
Since then, the Bible is the light of the
world, and the true source of liberty, both
civil and religious, let me urge upon all in
this assembly, and especially upon all
who r.re connected with Sabbath Schools,
the importance and necessity of loving
and cherishing it. Be deeply concerned
about instilling its salutary principles in
to the minds of the rising generation, for
they arc the hope of our country. Let them
value the bible, and the American Repub
lic will be furnished with a safe guard a

Washington, June 9, 18 16.
A dramatic scene, such, I venture to
say, as never had its parallel on this earth
occurred on Saturday evening last, Gth
inst., and was the legitimate ofl spring of
that strange invention to which the pub
lic attention is at this time so universally
attracted. Professor Morse, ihe inventor
and superintendent of the Magnetic Tele
graph, and his assistant, Mr. Vail, in' their
office at Washington, wished to test the
integrity of the telegraph line the whole
distance through from Washington to N.
York, a distance of no less 2G0 miles.

of the scene I am about to record, the rea

that all these questions and answers occur

longer than that in which the unique dra

Pennsylvania and the Tariff.
It is possible that the fate of the anti
protective Tariff bill, now before the Sen.
ate, may depend upon the casting vote of
Mr. Vice President Dallas. In that
cae the Slate of Pcnnsylvania,which went
for "Polk, Dallas and tho Tariff of 1812,"
may behold her favorite policy prostrated
by the man whom she aided to place in
the Presidential chair of the Senate a
man who is a native of her soil, and
whose nomination to the high office
which he fills was made in compliment
to Pennsylvania, or to mislead her.
If the suffering in which Pennsylvania
is to be involved by the overthrow of
protection should full upon thosc alone

would be difficult, I suppose, to find any
men, but avowed Whigs, who favor the
TariiF or no tariff, protection or no pro
tection, thus becomes a grcad leading
question. All Whigs are on ono side,
and generally speaking, all who are not
Whigs on the other. But then arises the
peculiarity in the slate of things in Penn
sylvania. Pennsylvania is a strong Tar
11" Slate. Among her citizens the pro
tective policy overrides the general de
cision of political parties, and men who
are not Whigs support that policy, firmly
and ardently. This is clear. Every
body knows it, and it needs no proof.
Well, then, what has happened, in con
scqoence of this well known state of
opinion, in Pennsylvania ?
Does the party, here, act against the
Tariff? Docs it speak the same language
which it speaks in Carolina? Oh, no,
nothing like it. In Carolina and other
States, the whole party exists, "principal
ly, for the purpose of putting down the
Tariff, and rooting it out, to the last fibre.
They call it the "black Tariff;" they de
nounce it as cruel and oppressive; and
they openly intimate the idea that a dis
ruption of the bonds of our National U
nion would be a less evil, than the estab
lishment and continuance of protective
principles. But, lo, when they come
into Pennsylvania, all is changed. Here,
they themselves, arc J professed Tarifl
men. Mr. Polk, their candidate for the
Presidency, is declared to be a supporter
of the Tariff, a Protectionist, a thorough
Pcnnsplvanian, on all these subjects.
This is, at least, a'bold stroke of policy.
I will not say how respectful it is to the
intelligence of Pennsylvania; I will only
say, it is a bold, a very bold political
movement. In every Stale where the
anti-tariff policy is predominant, or in
which the party holds anti-Tariff opin
ions, there Mr. Polk is pressed upon the
confidence of the people, as an anti-Tariff
man& because he is an anti-Tariff man;an
anti-Tarifl man, as they commonly say,
"up to the hub.' 1 But in Pennsylvania,
his claims to confidence and support arc
urged with equal zeal, on the opposite
ground, that is to say, because he is a
Tariff man, and a Tariff man equally "up
to the hub." Here, the whole party.
adopt fully, and support warmly, the
Tariff principles of the whigs, the Tariff
principles of Pennsylvania. Here, they
sail nndcr the Whig flag, they would get
into the Whig ship, seize the W hig rud
der, and throw the old crew overboard.
Or, if they keep in their own craft, they
still hoist false colors, give their vessel a
new name, and destroy their old logbook.
Gentlemen, I think if Mr. Polk were
to find himself in a circle of friends, com
posed partly of citizens of Carolina, and
partly of those of Pennsylvanio, he would
find himself in a curious dilemma. It
would be a woundcr, if he did
not set these two sorts of friends
at once by the cars. Tlic Card-J
lina gentlemen would shout "Polk forever,
and down with the Tarifl uf 1812 1" Tho
Pennsylvania gentlemen would say,
"PoIkAND the Tariff of 1312, forever!"
And what would Mr. Polk say? Why,
uttering his own well known opinions, he
would say to his Carolina friends, "Gen
tlemen, you do me no more than justice.
I am opposed to the Tariff of 1812, and
think it ought to be repealed. In the
