Great Speech of General John S.
A correspondent of the Richmond
Dispatch writes as follows from the
University of Virjrinia:
Th? public hall was orowded this
morning nt half-past 10 o'clock, to
hear the address of General John S.
Preston, of South Carolina, before
the Washington and Jefferson Lite?
Mr, C. J. Faulkner, Jr., in behalf
of the Societies, tendered the au?
dience a cordial welcome, and grace?
fully introduced the orator of the
day, G?n?ral John S. Preston, of
South. Carolina. Ho was received
with the most vociferous applause,
which compelled him to remain
standing for several minutes, and
perntitted the audience to gaze upon
one of the noblest looking men I
ever saw. His splendid figure, erect
as an arrow, noble countenance,
lighted with the fires of genius, mar?
tial bearing, and heuvy groy mous?
tache, reminded one of an old Mar?
shal of Franco, in the proud days of
Napoleon's power and glory.
Ho began by a beautiful allusion
to the lessons taught by classic
Greece, where Homer learned to sing
of gods aud heroes, the sculptured
marble wa3 mado instinct with lifo.
Anacreon wrote in sweetly flowing
numbers. Demosthenes thundered
the voico of freedom, tho Leonidas
died in tho cause of liberty. Rome
taught us tho science of government
and law. The lessons of Israel come
from the waves of the Red Son, tin
Mount of God, Siloa's brook, anc
Calvary's cross. Rut he proposed tc
draw lessons nearer home, from th?
historic past of Virginia-her heroes
and her principles. Ho vividb
sketched tho old glory of Virginia
in tho freedom of her people and th?
excellency of her institutions. Hi
gave striking illustrations from his
tory to show that tyranny had neve
been able to crush tho spirit of liber
ty, and that when it seemed emslie*
iu Europe, it found a refago ou thi
sido of tho ocean, and gavo to tb
world Washington and his Virginia
But where and what is that Virgini
to-day? Four days heneo will b
celebrated tho day on which wa
signed the instrument intended t
give to us tho fruitage of tho vintag
of liberty; and on that day orator
will speak in the namo of freedom
Rome still called her tyrants Cmsai
and preserved carefully the insigni
of liberty-her Senntors still si
clothed in purple robes, and o
festal days her orators Haunted th
names of her patriots long aft?
every spark of liberty was extii
guished. So on tho approachiu
natal day of American independent
the names of Virginia's patriots wi
be flaunted over tho land; for dui
indeed would bo tho day without tl
lustre of those names which gave
its chiof glory. Will it be asked c
that day where is Virginia? Tl
world has honored her; Franco d
creed honors to his memory, and tl
great Napoleon bowed his laurel?
brow in revereuco to Virginie
Washington. He proposed to ta
of this Virginia to-day. In boybo?
ho remembered to hnvo seen soc
proud Indian return to this regi<
to hunt up and fondly linger nroui
tho graves of his fathers. Is it trc
sou for us to-day to inquire aft
those great names which Virgin
gave to the world, and to linger

ed to new life by the sunshine of a
century of glory undimmed.
With the hand of a master, tho
orator then traced the origin and
history of the Constitution of the
United States, and snowed that the
South, in the great struggle, fought
for the principles of that Constitu?
tion, only adding to it a single line
to recognizo the authority of th?
God of nations. The cause of.thc
South failed; and over laud and see
is shouted, "Liberty may bo dead,
but the Union is preserved. Glory

It is false that American liberl
originated in other latitudes than i
Virginia, though it is not surprisir
that this honor has been claimed f<
New England, and would not su
prise us if somo day some mend
cious Bancroft should claim for tl
same section the fame of Washin
ton, Jefferson, Madison, Marshall,
ovon Stonewall Jackson and Bobe
E. Lee. Tho speaker drew an el
quent and touching parallel botwo
Virginia in 177G and 1861, and I
tween Virginia at tho beginning
tho late war and Virginia as she u<
is, and made a thrilling appeal to t
sonsof Virginia, to seek to restore L
to her pristine glory. The sons of t

tho physical, so it is iu the mon

picture we behold is terrible to b(
old and young. But tho young n
have blight visions of bright di
before them, and drawing inspir?t:
from tho past glory of Virginia, tl
may have, at least, bright dreams
tho future. "Aud if, with the dra

he had not erred, and that it vs
not be taken amiss, that he had

Drawiug a beautiful paralle
tween Athens and Virginia, hi
quent ly exhorted tho ?young men of
Virginia to be true to their old mo?

"Commending yourselves to a God
of Bight, rise up with determined
souls and claim that which the noble
Volcian demanded when, . clanking
his chains along ; the Ko man ranks,
he cried, 'Give us that which men
deserve who think themselves worthy
to be free'-and then-no ! my old
eyes will not Uve to see it, but
blessed be the God of my fothers,
thon-even now here, standing on the
sacred places of liberty, I do see, as
in a holy vision, .ulong the yet un?
traveled waste of; a-fast-coming fu?
ture-I see the sacred image of
regenerated Virginia, and cry aloud
in the hearing .of all the nations of
the earth, 'All hajl, our mother!' "
It is impossible to deseriue the
effect of this .speech. Cheer after
cheer interrupted the noble old
Roman, ns with clear ringing voice,
and easy, graceful gesture, he gave
utterance to words which thrilled
every heart and brought tears to eyes
unused to weep. The above is only
a very meagre sketch of the speech,
which held tho audieuco spell-bound
for over two hours, but which so
sparkled with gems in every sentence
that even the bellos and beaux ceased
their clatter and gave undivided at?
After tho deafening cheers had
somowhat subsided, thoro were loud
and continued calls for Hampton.
Ho arose, and as he stood to await
tho ceasing of the deafening cheers
with which ho was greeted, wo could
not but recall tho days when his
raven locks could bo seen leading
bravo legions to victory,
i Ho thanked the young men from
his heart for tho call they had mndo,
and tho kindness with which they
had greoted him. Their cheers re?
minded him of those he used to hear
on the battlo-fiold, telling where
Virginia chivalry led the way to vic?
tory. Ho came from tho noble and
gallant State of South Carolina,
which yielded to none in her devo?
tion to the causo of right, though
she now sits and weeps in sack-cloth
and ashes. But he had listeued with
pleasure equal to that of any present
to tho glowing eulogy upon Virgi?
nia; for, during four glorious years,
he, too, was a citizen of Virginia,
and claimed a part of her proud
heritage. Ho doubted not that ho
was called out becauso it was his
proud privilege to have belonged to
the "Army of Northern Virginia"
the noblest army that ever marched
on God's earth-and to havo led Vir?
ginians as well os brave sons from
other States. As commauder of the
cavalry corps of the army of North?
ern Virginia, ho had tried to do full
justice to all, from whatever State
they came, and to roward true merit
wherover found, whether covered by
tho braided coat of tho officer or the
tattorod jacket of tho privato soldier.
He saw before him somo of tho mon
housed to lead, and hailed this as the
greeting of the cavalry corps, army
Northern Virginia, to their old com?
mander. In tho name of that glo?
rious old corps-in tho name of its
fallen as well as its living heroes-ho
returned most hearty thanks for this
Gen. Hampton was frequently in?
terrupted by deafening cheers, which
were long continued after ho took
his seat. But when the band struck
up "Dixie," tho audience knew no
bounds to their enthusiasm, and
made tho roof ring with cheer after
cheer. Three cheers wero given for
Gens. Preston and Hampton, and
rendered with tho will of those who
honored so highly tho men.
