Air. Sccritary GL.AY'ro addressedJ a letter to
his Fellow-citizedniin Delaware onn tihe occasionll
if a I hrge \Vhiigcclebration of our national In- I
dependence, in'lo-iich the cabinet ollicer makes
sonm -miost unrighteous asseltions agaiist his
.coiitryinci-the Democrats. Iis letter may
he seen inl another colmm or our paper. Th
Secretary of State says, that the pre~snit admin
istratioin was brouight into poner by a party.
vwhich has vii tually been proscribed for tweni
ty years." Inl anotier place ie remarks, that
party Is beeiin1" virtunug disfrancised," as t
olice., af honor or trust. Pruscribcd ! diofran
chised ! By ,whom ? 01 course by tle opposite
or D)emocratic parly. The Secretary will say,
them, that the Whrig party has for the la.t twen
ty years beeni proscribed i. e. doomed to de
striscioin-conide fOned-ciit olf from all chance
of ollice bly the )eimocratic party. We regard
this as a base slander on our national character.
The charge is not true. The history of the
successive aidiniisti tios of the Goveritneint
proves its laikity. It is trite, a Democratic
President may have formed his rninct from
those holding tle same political principles willh
himsell This was perhaps mcessary For that
iermony of actioi repiired for a proper ad
ministration of Governmient. 1ut as to the
vast number of Olli':ers nider Goverienit
incliiiig tforeign miiiiiisters &c. we believe it
caii lie established as matter of history, that the
opposite party to hut ili power, lias, if tnot
ecgiiaUy, at least largely participated in the ci
joyient of lemni.
We regard thelanguage used by Ilte Secrc
tary, not only as nuitrute in poiit of ract, but
highly objectiniable on the scare of indclicacy.
uiiming 1i-om a partizan politiciati, workinig his
way to nilice liy intrigue and lby every miseri.

regard iimself s an oilieer (f the chote ation!
and iiot of a party, such language is highly inl
discreet, improper, aind inijrious in ielffets.
IlThe whole letter or tine Secretary of State
exhibits we Inist coiess, a stratige medley of
icisonal and party reelitig. There is nothiiig
nationtial or statesumilike in it. There is noth
ing iin it, applicable to the great occasioni fur
which it n as written. lie was invited to assist
ini celebrating the great birth day of our nation
all independleice, so siiggestive of great ptinci.
iles and evetits-and the Secretary respnds
to the intvitation by a trifliing exhibition or his
party and personal ainoyances. Beside there
is a vein of pindiig egotism riuining through
every sentence of his letter which cannot but
diist. Ili~s vexaiiioins-hiis I rothhes--heis inburs
his dillirlies meet the eye inl cvery plihrase.
The Secretary seems to think it worthy of
recirl that lie is " chained down to ' spot rrom
I- to H; hoirs a day and lhboring all tih time."
We caenniit but suspect there is a little bit or
exaggeration inl this seintence ; tt sippose tnot

wvhiaeb you have honored me for mly sincere
rndeavors to servo you as an instructor of
li encouragiog a school in ynu vicint
age, you are not only benefltinag your
selves, but you are discharging your obli
gatiuns to your children, to society, and to
the country. All the appliances too, for
the support of an itstibtoion of learniisg,
such as pupils, provisions and wealth. are
made so abundant in your neighorhood, hy
the industry of man and the boutv of
heaven, that you have no excuse whatever,
fur permitting a single child to be brought
up in ignorance and neglect amonigs you
and if you refuse to exenl your patron
age and helping hands to all whoare seel
in-g fur light and knowledge in your mids',
vuu will deserve to be elnised with the
nigrateful servant that hid his talcut in the
bosom of the earth
The constitution of America is more fa
vorable to education, than that or any oth
er nation on lie globe; and the incetives
to the improvenient of ilie young tnen of
our land are so miay am powerful, that
if parents flail to be infltenced by thetm,
they will be criminal in the sight of God,
and unworthy of the sacred trust reposed
in thetm. Since the creatiorr of ian, there
has never been so fair a theatre for the
generous strife of ambition as is presented
to the Amierican people.
The abolition of hereditary titles to
fame and olice is the noblest Iealure j our
goverinent ; and the most baut ifil?#sull
ilf the whole operation of our sgten. i
the equal right secured to every- one, of
aspiring to the highest positions o. wealth
and distinction in the State.
In the monarchical and nristocratical
overnmenis of the " ohl world," a man's
destiny is fixed at his birth. Unless he is
ai prodigy of genius, no ellbrts of industry
hiowever fait 1ful, honest and untiring caln
raise him above lhe rank in which he hap)
pens to be burn. If ho is the son of a ten
qnt, lie reels that lie is a bondstan, he
lives in servitude, and he dies a slave.
The most lofty aspirations of intellect arc
thus repressed, and the mind is fettered as
wi-l shackles of iron. No ordinary genius
ever can burst from the prisoiliotuse in
which it is confined, tidtt in which its pin
ions are bound down by the fixed rules of
custom, and te stern decrees of law.
Nothing but a revolution and a conviusion
that shook the whole masses of European
society together could have called forth
aver such spirits as Marhal Ney, John
Ilainoen atnd Oliver Cromwell, from
lie deep obscurity to which they had
been assigned by their birth. Ote age is
probably as fruitful inigreat tali"j as an
wher, ror-iita blessings.at' Lnan nre-dis
pensed with an imnpartial hand ; but in ihe
Monarchies atnd Aristocracies of the world
it is only aiid the disorder and the total
cotnfusiotn of the elemients of society arnd
overnmiaent, that true mterit atnd ntaturail
undodwmttents cian assumtie their prope1r as
endenicy over mtankinad. TVhe period of
he brilliant career of Dunapatte wheh
~alledi itnto exercise those vatious andu
pldemtliud abilities that cotnfoutnded the cal-.
:ulations of men, and astonished the mia
ions of the eartht, we have nto reason to
)lieve, was distinguished above others by
mny peculiar favor of providence. ini all
receding centuries, :neti had lived and
ad passed away, who tmight have betn
equally as illustrious as the heroes who
iught around the pyraumids, tir the states
nen who throniged the court of the mtighity
:(tiqueror of Europe ; but they were etn
laived by the dlesprtismn of their contt
rics, and oppressed lby poveray and burtiedl
