credit, the creation of 11 currency, tho preservation
of public faith with foreign countries, and general
tranquility at homo ; and Wobster, in an eloquent
burst familiar to you all, declared, " Ho smote the
"rock of tho national resources, nnd abundant
" streams of revenue gushed forth ; ho touched tho
"dead corpse of tho publio credit, and it sprang
" upon its feot."
' Hamilton was present at the first meeting of tho
Society, when its Constitution was adopted, nnd his
name occurs frequently in their subsequent pro
ceedings. Wo find him, on tho 8th February, 1 1 80,
one of a Committee to procure an Act of tlio Leg
islature to prevent tne exportation ot any clave
from the State, nnd his name is, soon nftcr, found
ftttachod to n memorial to the State Legislature,
commencing in those words i " Your Memorialists
being deeply affected by tho situation of thnso who,
attnuugh free by the law of (Jud, are held in Slav
ery by tho laws of the State" a proposition that
reaognixos distinctly Tim uia.iini.AMr that embraces
th. whole ubatanco of tho Anti-Slavery controversy
and ono by which, if tho whole people were
"deeply aOectod," Slavery would die. On tho 20th
of November, 1788, Hamilton was electod a Coun
sellor of the Sooiety, with James Duano, Judge
BDsn and Robert '1 roup j and, passing over nearly
twenty years, during which he was frequently ap
pointed, ou Committees, nnd for a time held
,iffic of president, in 1X03 tho report of tho Now
York Manuiuissiou Society to tho Abolition Con
tention nt Philadelphia, showed Hamilton still
, eoansetlor of the Association, having as his nilvo
, eates Peter Jay Muuroe and Petor Augustus Jay,
I Daniel 1. Tompkins, who subsequently, ns Gover
nor of the State, had tho honor of recommending
to the legislature or Aoir xork the final nholttiou
.f Slavery, and whose consistent regard for
.principle, of our Revolution, in all their eatholio-
ttyi without limitation to color, creed or condition.
, Still lives in his dosoendnut, who, in our battle
I freedom, lead. th. independent Democracy of
Mtiv. State. '
These memorials of Hamilton give him a rank
Kmong tbe true patriots nnd philanthropists of
age, of which New York iray well be proud.
Mere worldly honors sink into insigniflcanco when
placed; side by tide with the unfading glory of dis
interested benevolence t nnd great as may be
Welt-deserved fame of Hamilton the Soldier
Hamilton the Statesman, equally enduring will
the honor that we now render, and that the lovers
of freedom and opponents of Slavery will
pender, to Alexander Hamilton the Abolitionist.
