THE MANNING TiM :
WEDNESDAYI JLY 6, I557
B. S. DINKINS, Edlitm-.
One hundred and eleven years a"
Monday, our brave and nob e
tainded forefathers, decare1 the"
grand thirteen States independent of
the mother country. They iadJ the:
Wisdom which discovered the impos
sibilitv of man rebelling against man.
Knowing, as they d-10. that constitn
tions and laws alone could be rebelled
aganst, they hesitatea not io miiak e
use of all the means given to them by
their God, to defeat the injustice of;
'kings, lords, and commons,' that their
liberties in the end might stand upon
the foundation of independence. T -rs
was no rebellion either in theic hearts
or in their acts. They entered into
1pen uationai war against those Who
vanted more than was just and right.
Their contest for independenc, could
not be construed even as revolution.
'They had a perfect government; their
grmies were in the field;' the great
and glorious Washington was their
wommander in chief. To tell us that
such brave, wise, just, and patriotic
men were rebels or revolutionists, is;
to announce the statement indirectly,
that there is no such a thing as gov
ernment. Their government was as
perfect as that of other nations; and I
in the end proved to be much safer, 1
-and a thousand times better. In a
word, our great forefathers fought for
the liberties of the world, which is
nothing more nor less than "the rights
. of man." These principles, defended
1by our forefathers, descended from
fathei to son, were the main spring
and stay on which the Confederates
stood in the dreadful conflict of G1-'5.
Theirs was no rebellion against the
Union, bat the assertion of constitu
tionol rights belonging to sovereign
The fourth of July, the anniversary
of the momentous event of the decla
anation of independence of the United
States, is celebrated with more or less
pomp and parade throughout the
Union. The whole Union continues
to unite in memorializing annually the
rand principle of the rights of mu.
And yet, 25 years ago, the cannonm of
the Federalists thundered in the in
,glorious attempt to suppress tis same
.principle. The Fourth of July will
'ever keep immortal the Revolution
