culiarly r.ppropmte to ycung men every where :
A bcobe of generations may roll by
before the world presents another oppor
tunity so glorious ' as now offers to make
your lives immortal. History has a sharp,
quick pen now. The lightning plays
through it. Not one atom of the humblest
heroism escapes it. Not a name under
which a brave man or boy does well shall fail
to be recorded where it will be read by
admiring, grateful millions, ages hence
The revolution of '76 was but the tame,
prosy prologue to the grand drama in,
which you are invited to be actors.
That war grew out of a question about
taxes, as many wars had before. It
aimed no deeper. But in getting into
full blast it raised a principle which gave
it a glorious vitality and insured it suc
cess. That principle has a political em
bodiment in the constitutions of the
national and state governments under
which you live, consciously happy, proudly
free. But the revolutionary war was not
fought under those constitutions. Our
fathers for seven long years threw them
selves, shoulder to shoulder, against home
tones and foreign despots, under another
document a paper such as the human
world had never heard'of before. It needs
not be named for you all have it by
heart and your hearts have all been
made larger by it. That paper thrilled
through all Christendom, and far out into
heathendom. It served better than the
strongest government to knit together the
hearts and arms of the people of thirteen
V most heterogeneous colonies,' and make
them victorious over the proudest govern
ment of, Europe for it charmed enmity
out of the very heart of the people of that
Against that immortal paper it is, and
not against the constitution, otherwise
thanTas' an emanation from it, that the
conspirators of the South have risen in
rebellion. -They long ago made up their"
minds that they would, not temporarily,
but .forever and aye,, mollify and s.e.tat
nought the! first -and foundatioa sentence
of the .'Declaration of Independence, the
true and only gospel of American as well
as human .liberty, and they have rebelled
against, the constitution only. because it
would not practically confirm arid eternize
that' nullification. - , -- -

able rights to life, liberty, arid the pursuit

the very time when George III. was
stirring up, by the promise of liberty,
their negro 'slaves as well as white bond
servants, to aid him in subjugating what
Be called his rebellious colonies, 'and they

generosity tq , make both black and
white serviles faithful to the continental '
i cause. It was a sincere, earnest vow to
God and man, that the war should result
in freedom to all, if it resulted in favor
of America ; and it put an end to the
British project of raising the slaves
niinst their masters, of which Washing
ton expressed such dread, in his letter to.
' Richard Henry'Lee, -written from Cam
bridge. By many masters arid by some
whole states the vow was kept, but by'
others it' was meanly broken. " -
