THIKD AM'AL XEETIX.' Of THE
An Eloqarct Address of IVflcomf hj
the Tresldeat, iltorgt lUnrruit,
Washikotox, April 27. The firwt
session of the tbiril anuriai meeting of
the Ampritan Historical Association
tu held in the lecta.v halt of the
Columbia 1'oiversiiT this morning.
PreeidiLt George liinmf:, the etut
riant American historian, delivered
the adilrfee of welcome. Mr. Benaoft
poke is follow :
MB. BAKCROtl'a ADDKKM.
Brothri of the AmcrinD Hutoriel A
cittioa: 1 welcome Ton to tbia third anai-
verearv of vour n s nee. Yoo who
in our uaivoraitiea inttruct thecozuec
jrerermtion in th hiatory of their rae;
yon who break from datiee in charvb
or in state to show your lore for your
fellow-mtn by your i?al in the ttady
of their progrces; yon who for a mo -
ment throw aside the carea of the
ptese, the toil of antborebip or the de-
liuhta of etudv in retirement, in tbe
name of tbe exiaiioa I bid )oi a'.l
joy at yonr renewed presence with one
auot'jer. The object of oar parsait
is one of the graedts. that solicits tbe
attention of man. The movement cf
mighty States over the scene of ever
succeeding action is like the march cf
so many armies with their vtthnt
civllimious for their banners;
they tbaniselves have faded away;
their career, their enduring contribu
tions to tbe earn of human knowl
edge, their men of trinecendent gen
ius, such s are vo irlifaleU to the racj
at great intervals ol curituries, all
come within tbe laoge rf onr pur
suits. Moreover, we are nearest of
kio to the etudecti of moral philoso
phy. The movemonts of humanity
re governed bylaw. It ia true Hint
tbe eparrow. when the tune comes for
its f a! I to tbe ground, obeys a law that
pervaded tbe koamoi; and it is equally
trne thu'. every hair in the bead of a
human being ia numbered. Tbe
growth and decay of empire, tUe
nirrning luster nf a dynanty and Its
fall from the sky before nconday j the
11 rut turning of a city tj the footsteps
ot a traveler suaichins lor its i ace.
which time baa hidden, nil proceed as
it ia ordered. The character ot science
attaches to our pursuits. The dilil
cnlty ot discerning the presence ol
law in the actions of rational being!
grows oat ol tbe infinite variety ot
lue movements ol the tinman will
nd of the motives by which it may be
wayeu. iu mo department ot tils tor y
the difficulty of judgment is dimin
ished, lor history deals with Ilia
past which is beyond the reach of
change. The dimemlng statesman
may forecast tbe character of coming
events, and form a plan of action with
a reaeonahle confidence in its wisdom ;
but the critic, who does not bring with
him tbe spirit of ciudid Inquiry, can
not comprehend the institutions that
lire forming themselves before his
eyes, lu all antiquity no true democ
racy exlhted a a government; yet our
national organization accepted ele
ments from the political organimtion
of tbe Gretks. It counts Christianity
among its sonrco?. It profited by the
experience of the Roman empire in
eetabl suing inter cit zsnship and do
mestic free trade. It ws essentially
imbnod with ttie spirit ( I tbe reforma
tion which rose op in Germany with
Lather, und was developed by Calvin
in France and in bwlf aoriand. It drew
from Knglaad ideas of personal liberty
nd elements suited to tbe form of
fovernment which it had to frame,
n its co'onlal period it derived from
its own experienco an opulence of
forms of representative government.
The American people have cause
t) be grateful to preceding generations
lor thsir Iara inheritances. Here is
no rale ol "the many;" it is tbe gov
ernment by the people, the govern
ment by ail. Were individuals or a
class to set themselves apart here
they would constitute only a sect. A
government that is leas than the gov
ernment by the entire people is a gov
ernment which the legislation will by
its very nature incline to the benefit
of claasoi. Tbe government of our
"new nation" is riuhtly described by
one of its greatest exponents rs
'gjvernment of tbe noople by the
people for the people." The singular
combination of tbe best elements of
the pftst in our institutions favored
our increase of territory. Our f itbors
eiprefgjd their vast aspirations in the
articles ot confederation. We never
extended our limits in the direction
which they pointed out; bat it was
not long bclcr we reached the Uull
of Mexii:o. When a foothold was of
fered to the United States in tbe Weet
Iadia Islands they, niter reflection, re
fused to plant their feet on the
richest of them all, and have
nevnr departed from the decision
not to enter the tropics. The complete
ness of the country was net established
till President of tbe United Slates
snccoeded by one treaty Tvlth Great
Britain and another with Mexleo to
enter into the peaceful possession of
the continent for sixteen degrees on
tbe Pacific. It was this settlement
which perfected the Union. From that
mo'iient its majesty and sglely rested
on the line of List and West ; and as
f r as the human eye can see we may,
in consequence, hold our Union in per
petuity. In the lint Congress slavery
bron r lit danger to the Union. Under
tbe Presidency of John Adams it tcok
steps f.ir an early dissolution; it was
quieted for awhile by Jefferson and
bis immediate successors, hut from the
moment that the country bad its vast
f tab inhnient on tho Pacific the dis
solution nf the Union became impos
sible. The will tf the people was
able ' to exact Us preservation,
but wlint an infinity cf p, wer
was necefsary to carry out thit will.
To r xprrt s ir, I adopt the worda ol an
Eogluth writer, who is a master ol his
own nol llar guaiP, thorough scholar
and honored as a hie:oi ian in both hem
ispheres: ' There are certain things,"
he tays, "which only deiaocia'y cn
execu'e. No monarch or privileged
order could have dared to take the
measures necessary to maintain the
Am.T.cvn Union. They would inlalli
blv have wrecked themselves in the
tffjit."- (Oceana, by James A. Froud,
rP. m 2.)
. We may ask, What is tbe spirit o!
government which saved i'B l (o by
its ir cm parable energy? D.!cauie

tion ti be for them tbe ripened frnit

The peorxe ol the United Mates era
the nice conservative in tho world.
frr they cherish self government a4
the moot precious of pnsstsuons. They
make law deliberately, only alter
long r Section, and they only make
laws within lbs limit of their confuta
tion. From end to end of tbe
I nited states two houses of legislation
exist as the rule, and the Executive
possesses a veto. A constitution may
be charged only u'ter reference in
some term to every individual in the
community. If the question mty be
flaked, doea a king r a people
give tue most honest euppcr.
t) the institution which they
both have accepted, we tnuBt
turn to France for a reply. Once, in a
reconstruction of its government, a
Bourbon wra enthroned In France as
a constitutional king. The first i-u :
cesror to the throne, conspired ogtiiuot
the constitution and was driven into
exile, all the world pronouncing the
judgmont he Justly left, Nextcamelho
house ol Orltans, holding up the II ig
of monarchy that should be the bint
of republics. Its king, in many thinjig
a wise and faithful mun, yet made tl e
interests of his family paramount to
the interests of tbe nation, and in leg
islation obstinatuly refuted to extend
the f uUrage so as to conform it to the
principle on which he received tbe
crown, and he, to), having been false
to tbe principle on which he accepted
powor, provokrd an insurrection, and
on tbe fudirmentof mankind h dm-.
ly fell. A member of another
oynasty beinir called to thn
Presidency of the French re
public, reached at tbe Imnerinl crown
and carried France into an unequal
war with its neighbor, brincine utter
oeieat on nimseii and the heavier sor
rows and le ases on a generous land
which he had ruled. The form nf a
government of "the new nation" seems
to tho world to be but of yesterday;
and it is so; yet that this government
by the people, for the poople, is the
oldemt form of government now exist
ing in tbe civilized world this side of
the empire of tbe Cxars. Hince the
inauguration of Washington Poitugal
aud Bpain bnve pastel from iirespon
s bio monarchy to constitutional rule.
The republic of Holland has disap
peared. In France government by
tbe people exists by the deliberate
choice o! the nation. Germany, which
in the midJIo ot the latt century was
divided into hundreds of sovereign
tins, has formed itself into one con
solidated government with a Par
liament by universal suffrage. The
republic of Kosciusko has ntterly
perished. Switzerland has thrown
aside its medieval form of confede
iacy, and ia now a true government
by the people. It would be bard to
count the revolutions which the
Grand Ducby cf Austria has under-
?one within the last ninety-six years,
taly, thank God, has become one.
The United Kingdom Is revolution
ized. The caeeol England is simply
this: Its King and its church long
time ago brnko from the Roman Stw.
Many men of the people accepted the
reformation. Englishmen, including
dissenters, were driven, through a se
ries of conflicts, to the attempt to
found a giveroniont of the people by
tho people. The attempt was prema
ture, and fulled. Tbe court again con
spired against the rights of English
men. The people, especially the die- j
eentere, kept themselves in the back
ground, and in intrnrted tbe
conduct of a new British revo
lution to the aristocracy. The
price taken by their aristocia-y
for success was tbeir own
nil but absolute rule of Great Britain.
Tho House ol Commons became mas
ter ol the king, and that master of the
king was elected chietly on the dicta
tion of tho majority of the landowners.
Tbe system was secure'd by bringing
in a new dynasty, which bad only a
parliamentary title to the crown.
This wiw the resolution of
l!!8. The aristocracy of England
Seemed to have founded its (.ower
upon an everlas'ing rock; but tbe
great expansion of industry and com
merce and the subsequent accumula
tion of wealth Boon compelled them to
mnke a place by their side for tbe
moneted centers. Commerce and
industry went on; in due timo
tbe example of tho Unite States had
its influence in the world. France ex
cited rivalry by once more entering
upon tbe career of a free S ate. At
last tb reform of the British Home
ol CommoiiR tiegun. the next the corn
laws wore reenled ; then science, by
its BUcce'ssful inventions, almost anni
hilated tho cost of transportation of
articles wheat among the rest - from
c 'ntinent to continent, so that land in
England lost its high value, the value
bosiB rn which tbe rule of the British
landholders rested began to totter,
and now, in the fullness of lime, the
llouso ol Commons, which is the
ruler ot the United Kingdom,
him taVen itself out of the hands of
the landowners, and placed itself in
tho keeping of the British and Irish
people. The United Kingdom, with a
.Ministry dependent for its existence
on tho House Commons, is cboscn by
the people, nnd Britain approaches
more nnd more nearly to government
by the people, for the people. Tho
United tStulcs of to-day nrv. now the
chief home of tho English-speaking
population of the world, for in nil
their English is tho language of the
people of l0 OlHOi 0. Canada stivtchi-s
along their border; a straight line from
England to Australia would cross their
domain; Newfoundland, New Bruns
wick ami Nova Scotia Hank them on
the east; the Bermudas mid Bahamas
are anchored near tlcir doors A gen
'ral representation of all who speak
the English tonnue would find in the
United States the central place most
convenient for their meeting
At the conclusion of the address the
following letter was read from Leopold
Von Banke, tbe venerable historian
of Berlin, in reply to a letter from
President George Bancroft a.-king him
to consent to become an honorary
member of the Association :
To tho Prcnident ot I lie Ame'io'ii Hi'l'.ric!

tion, 1 gratefully accei t the jxsition

kinship It filla me with especial joy
to s-e Mr. George Bancroft, one; of tho
masters in our science, extending bis

About 5 o'clock last evening two
brothers, John and Edward Burke,
proprietors of a grocery he-re. became
engaged in a quarri'l about a liorso, in
tho course of which John drove his
knife into the left side of Edward's
throat, severing v ins and arteries,
ami indicting a wound of about two
inohi's in length. John, realizing the
fearful crime he had committed,
rushed into the 'store, picked up a
derringer, planed tbe muzzle over his
right eye, pulled tho trigger nn.l sent
a bullet crashing into his bruin, in
flicting a wound from which Im is
now dying. Edward's wound, while
regarded us extremely dangerous, it is
