The ;r"t~1jMf*T"~*?g" nf aMMilaj?OB and!
wealth in^he Northern States accord
ingly ftr a&eeded that in the Southern
States; and While at the first census the
opulation of the South represented one*
afr of the total population of the conn
try, in 1860 it was loss than one-third.
The population of the great State of
Virginia, in the early days of the repub?
lic, almost equaled that of any two
Northern States, while in 1860 she
ranked fifth on tho census list, and sho
averaged only twenty-siu persons to tho
square mile; whereas Massachusetts ave?
raged 157. Our material progress, then,
from year to year, was not what it should
have been, and in that respect the result
was a continuous loss of power and in?
fluence upon tho part of the South. This
fact is indisputable, whatever the causes
may* have been, and it is useless now to
inquire whether it was the result of false
statesmanship and an unfortunate pre?
judice against commerce and manufac?
tures, or the effect of OUT peculiar insti?
tutions. The causes, however, no longer
exist, .and our. present condition and
opportunities are suoh as should insure
us, if true to ourselves and to the lessons
of the peat, our full share of prosperity.
The losses, hardships and sufferings that
have bendien our people are well calcu?
lated to make them -appreciate now the
importance of,'developing, all pur 're?
sources, and will,, no doubt,* educatoH
them riot only to realize tho necessity of r
labor-in all itsfitrms as the means of ma?
terial success, but also to honor it as an
essential condition of social progress.
There could, bo no better schooling for our
people in this respect than their recent
experiences, and they already understand
in all its force the true meaning, as well
as the philosophy of the Divine decroo:
??By the sweat of thy brow thou Shalt
earn'- thy bread."' It is an interesting
fact in this connection, said to be estab?
lished by statistics, that the health of
colonists in hot climates is in direct pro
Sortion to their habits of industry,
hose colonists^ - for example,,who labor
habitually, secure health, as nature's re?
ward for their work; and leave a hardy
progeny behind thorn to inhabit and
possess the land;1 while those who are
inert, or whose habits of life are seden?
tary; are more subject to disease and
transmit to their descendants enfeebled
constitutions, as nature's curse for the
violation of her laws.
"Cheered with tho viow, man went to till
the ground -
From whence 'he rose; sentenced,
deed, to toil
As to a punishment; yet (e'en in wrath
So merciful is Heaven) this toil became
The solaoe of his woes, the sweet employ
Of many a livelong hour, and the surest
Against disease and death.
The ordeal, it* is true, to which our
people have' boon ' subjected since tho
? close of the war has been a trying one.
The sorrows and. horrors of war were ex?
ceeded by the evils of reconstruction',
(which, under the humiliating tyranny
of Corrupt Officials, surpassed anything
that was. ever, before inflicted upon a
people of the same culture and Civiliza?
tion,) and' there is nothing we have to
deplore more bitterly than the effect
upon those who. wore unable from age
to accommodate themselves, to the new
circumstance's, or to change, with impu-M
nity, their habits. The young con
change their mode of life, as may be ne?
cessary, and can meet and outlive losses
and.troubles', but this is rarely possible
with those advanced in years, flow many
of our most respected arid honored have
succumbed to untold trials, losses and
humiliations, who would otherwise , have
lived to a good old age! This is, indeed,
one of the saddest features of the sad
picture, and should be included with
those memories of the past that claim
our deepest sympathy.
In the further consideration of our
subject, it may be necessary to meet tho
objection, that the recent tendency to
centralization will end in imperialism,
or (permanent democratic absolutism;
and that, accordingly, the, future of
our republican government is uncertain.
There is, however, no just cause for ap?
prehension. Tho American people will
neither be defrauded of their inheritance
of liberty nor forcibly deprived of it
They are too intelligent to be deluded,
and too brave to be overawed. The pas?
sions and prejudices of the hour may
temporarily oloud the truth, but the sun?
shine of returning reason will soon dissi?
pate tho mists, and public opinion will be
again heard on the Bide of constitutional
government The republic has been
termed "an experiment," but it has now
weathered the political storms of almost
a century, and the people are not only
fully imbued with the spirit of freedom,
and deeply attached to their institutions,
but, what is equally important, they
have become habituated to self-govern?
ment The idea of any coup d'etat being
successful, therefore, in this country,
with a people accustomed to liberty, is,
of course, preposterous; for, if Otesarism
had been possible with us, it was only so
through the votes of tho people them?
selves, who, if untrue to their Anglo
Saxon instincts, might have been tempted
into the support of their successful sol?
dier, from his popularity aa the so-called
"Saviour of the Republic" This dan
ger, however, if it ever existed, as so
many thought, is certainly past; far the
people have spoken in words that cannot
be misconstrued on the "third term"
question. Calhoun, one of the wisest as
well as purest of statesmen, regarded
civil war as the soverost test to which our
republican form of government could be
subjected. His Apprehension was, that
the leader of the victorious section would
become the despot of both sections, As
our institutions have now survived this
ordeal, under the most trying oircum
staftoea, we should bays greater confi?
dence in their stability. The war preju?
dices are at last buried, the bloody chasm ,
pearod from our political ?ky. f
L Tho roconatruption meaaurea, . it?ifl
! true, were not only oppressive and
I tyrannical?conceived in hate and born
in iniquity?but they . resulted from a
gross and. unsoropnlous abuse of power
by a radical faction, whose legislation
was a disgraoe to American sell-govorn
ment, and ill comports with the liberal
and advanced views that should have
characterized the American people,
claiming, as tbey do, to teaah and lead
tho world in the art of freu government.
We should not, however, hold the people
responsible. They were misled by cor?
rupt party lenders, who relied upon tho
war prejudices to prolong their term of
power. It is not surprising, then, under
the circumstances, that the voice of rea?
son was temporarily hushed, and that it
should have required almost ten years
for Northern voters to understand the
facts as they existed at the South, and to
realize the enormities and wrongs that:
had been practiced upon our people
under the Reconstruction Acts of Con?
gress. The truth was, however,, (thanks
to the independent press,) at last under?
stood at the North, and we have tho best
ovidence in the vote which was polled at
'the elections last faU, that the masses are j
really "true at heart," That vote should
restore confidence in the American peo?
ple, if the excesses Of the preceding de?
cade had destroyed it.
It is further true, that the Government
has become consolidated; yet it is still
essentially decentralized?certainly so
?as comparod with French or continent id
centralism. Witl/the growth and deve?
lopment of the country, there i was ne?
cessarily the usual change from the
homogeneous to the heterogeneous, from
the simple to the. complex, from the
weak and purely Federal republic of the
past, to the strong and powerful nation
of to-day; but this was only, in accord?
ance witli the law. of . progress itself,
and arose from the necessity of the .
case, in the growth of the "social
organism." The country has passed
from the condition of a small confede?
racy of States, representing a few mil?
lion of people, to that of a groat nation.
It bos become one of tho first powers of
the world, and, at the present rate of in?
crease, her population will exceed, be?
fore the close of the century, 100,000,000.
We cannot have the pure Federalism of
Jefferson, but this should oause no appre?
hension, if the present limits of national
authority be not exceeded. A strong go?
vernment does .not necessarily preclude
local aolf-go vernment; for there is no real
incompatibility between the two. While
we cannot, therefore, expect again the
extremes of "States' rights," we may,
nevertheless, enjoy all the blessings
of local control over local interests;
and it is probable that the present
revulsion against the centralizing po?
licy of the Republican party will re?
sult in the reeognition of all constitu?
tional restrictions, and oheck any tend?
ency to further consolidation. Upon the
whole, there is much that is promising
in tho political outlook for the cause of
free government, and it probably stands
to-day upon a surer, basis than ever be?
fore in the history of tho world; and I
would add, in the language of the im?
"Doubt not but success
Will fashion the event in better shape
Than I can lay it down in likelihood."
But furthermore: as in the physical
world, every change in the natural envi?
ronment is followed, we are told, by cor?
responding changes in the fauna and
floral; so, in the moral world, gradual
changes in the social environment are
followed by corresponding changes in
the social organism. While, therefore,
development and growth, in tho ad?
vance of civilization, frequently produce
changes that would be dangerous, if
if society remained otherwise the same;
vat these very changes become sources
of progress and improvement, when, in
analogy to what is observed in natural
history, corresponding changes occur in
the very fabric of society, adapting it to
neic circumstances. The operation of this
law can be discerned in the history of free
government in this country. While, as we
have seen, by the foroe of circumstances,
our simple Federal RepubUo has beoomc
a strong nation, and as compared with
the States, necessarily clothed with con?
trolling powers -such, indeed, as would
have been regarded by our earlier states?
men as fatal and destructive?yet, at the
same time, corrective and harmonizing
agencies have been developed, which
supply adequate 'counteracting influ?
ences; and I hesitate not to affirm that
the equilibrium will be preserved, and the
resultant be real progress.
The conclusion of this admirable ad?
dress will be furnished to-morrow.
A collation, furnished by Mr. John
McKenzie, followed; but as nonejbut the
