A little over one bundled vears ngo
those who were living In New Yoik
city saw n great commotion In the
hnrboi; Biltlsh soldiers weie liuny
lng to nnd fro and packing their be
longings, pi lor to their depaiture for
theli nntlvo land. When all was ready,
the sails weie flung to the breeze and
the enttte Biltlsh lleet started on their
Joutney to native England, and "pence,
sweet peace, floated ovei a free and
Independent people." That day New
York city witnessed one of the ginnd
est and most enthusiastic parades that
had ever been seen in the New Woild.
The long line filed out IUoadway, down
the Bowery, and on to the battel y;
then, swinging round, mnrched back
witli banneis Hying and music playing.
On teaching the cential city, with bon
fires eveiv wheie, and the denfonlng
thunder of cannons, a mass meeting
was held. Old men fell on each otheis
necks and wept, while joung men and
maidens shouted foi joy, nnd, although
the patli ot our revolutlonniy fatheis,
leading from Bunker Hill to Valley
Foige and Trenton was marked with
blodd, pilvation, and surfe'tlng and
death, jet, all tills made mote glorious
the wonderful victoiy which they had
achieved. Then, a new tepubllc with
the lmmortnl Wnslilngton at the helm,
started on a vovnge to national life.
The w heels of Industry began to spin
nnd for neailv three-uuniteis of n cen
tuty pence telgned, and piospeiity a
tonded; but, while oui fotefnthers pur
chased fieedom for the nation, they
did not kill the cankei wot in, and oe
tween eighteen bundled nnd fifty and
sixty the monster hnd giown Immense
lv, and was fast eating his way to the
veiy heatt of the nation. Trie walls
of llbetty which hnd been built by our
fatheis, at such a tiemendous sacil
flce, began to cratk and crumble. A
cloud would be seen gatheilng In the
Southern hoilzon which airse higher
nnd higher until it arched the heavens;
one end settled In the North, the other
In the South, the dreadful seieeeh of
the war-eagle was again hcaid in the
land. Fathers left their plows stand
ing In the fuirow, their planes on the
benches and hnmmeis on the anvil,
and impi luting a klsT on the 11ns of
heaitbtoken wives, nnd clasping Utile
chlldien in a lnt loving embrace,
lushed to the sunn) South In defence
of their home and native land; and
fout long jeais the ciah of Infantry,
and that teriifhc thundei of cannons,
which one mast heal to ieall?e how
dreadful It Is, was heard In our native
land. Thrse were tenlble dajs In
which four millions of brave boys in
blue and sia weie mnrshnlled In dead
ly comrnt, and when there weie elht
bundled thousand desolate hearth
stones In the lnnd, and a multitude
of widows and oiphnns and chil
lers motheis. But at last the terrific
thunderi censed, the smoke of battle
began to cleai nway and theie was a
lay of hpavens' own sun Hint pieiced
the daikness and began to dissipate the
gloom. The unpropitlous skies so long
as brass above the nation weie content
to melt to silent tents; but, there weie
scais on many bt easts, mounds on
many battle fields and vacant chalis
In many homes But the war-cloud
has been lifted, our cannons have been
