For the Frets.
The PUgrlm Fathers Vindicated.
Messrs. Editors:—The late attempt of
your correspondent “Maine” to calumniate
the character of the Plymouth Pilgrims, re
minds me of a similar attempt which I noticed
in the Haliowell Courier, of the 4th inst., in
an article written by its editor, (Mr. New
man,) extolling the Episcopal Colony of Pop
ham, at the expense of the Pilgrim colony at
Plymouth. He says:
In 1607, just thirteen yeacl|4|k the Puri
tans landed on Plymouth B^^Hp>orgc Pnp
baui lauded at the inmithj^^^Hnncliec with
English settlers, and buii^^^^&d dwelling
houses. They remaine^^^^^He year. In
1606 Popham died, the sefflWiffc'rcd from
cold and privation,their store-house was burnt,
they were annoyed by the natives, and returu
, South
load of
am’s at
ibers of
•A their
I Itual of
........... liberal
in their views aDd tolerant in their opinions.
On the other hand, the English Puritans who
came from Holland, and landed on Plymouth
Rock in 1620, were Illiberal and selfish in their
religious views. This was soon manifested in
the banishment of oil who dissented from them,
"the Baptists and Quakers, and the extreme
laws they enacted iu religious matters. Al
though representing themselves as fleeing from
persecution, they immediately set to work to
establish a system of religious domineering
ten-fold more severe than they had themselves
suffered from the English Church. Their re
liglons frpuiy culminated years after in the
putting to death ol the witches.
» I will not say, as Ex-Gov. Wasiibure, at
the late Popham celebration intimated, Unit
both the Jomeatown and Popham colonies fail
ed because they were exotics from the Episco
pal Church—children too tender to maintain
themselves so far swsy from the mother's apron
suing,—wnereas, nail mey neen I unian*,Hard
ened and mode self-sacrificing by persecution
as the 1’ilgriin* were, they would have suc
ceeded as these actually did succeed in e»tal>
luhin'j a settlement in these then inhospitable
wild*;—but 1 do wish to take this occasioned
tills place, to say that both “Maine,” and the
editor of the “Kennebec Courier,” betray a
shameful ignorance, as well as a sectarian
spite. In saying that the Episcopal Colouy of
Popham, were “liberal and tolerant in their
opinions,” whilst the Pilgrims “who came from
Holland, and landed on Plymouth Kock, were
illiberal and nelflxh in their religious views,”
alleging that they banished Uaptists,huugQuak
ers, and put witches to death. What are the
bets? According to history, the Episcopal
Colony, which died a year old, at the mouth of
the Kennebec river, was fitted out by Lord
Chief Justice Popham, of the King’s Bench,
who sent his relative, George Popham, in
charge of the Colony hither. He was indeed
a devoted Episcopalian; but was he so very
“liberal and tolerant in his opinions,” as the
editor of the Kennebec Courier would repre
sent? On the contrary, no one was more in
tolerant towards the non-confonnists or Puri
tans than he. It was before him that many of
these humble Christian were tried aud sentenced
to death, for the awful crime of differing from
the Episcopal Church! Take for example, the
case of that godly man John Penry, or Ap
Henry, (son of Henry,) who for daring to draft
a petition to Queen Elizabeth, praying her to
allow him liberty to “preach the Gospel in his
native principality," was found guilty of differ
ing from the church by this very Popliam, and
“condemned to die ” He suffered deatli as a
martyr, and his “apjs-al to the Queen,” |u»t
before his execution, is one of the most saintly
and affecting papers that all history records.
Popham and his Colony, were “liberal and
tolerant,” were they? The Courier man lie
trays great ignorance in his desire to extol the
Episcopal Popliam, at the ex|iense of the Ply
mouth Pilgrims.
Then again, he intimates that the Puritans
who landed oh Plymouth Kock, were really
not driven hither by the persecutions of the
Pniaisnna I I'lm re Vi Malllvoii nli *•<, • ■••si >>o«
themselret as fleeing from persecution.” Did
the man nmer read history ? Let him read the
following from Daniel Webster’s Centennial
Address, Dec, 22, 1820:
An unfrequented and barren heath on the
•bores of Lincolnshire, was the spot whither
they were driven, and where the feet of the
Pilgrims were to tread, lor the last Jime, the
land of their fathers.
As this scene passes before us, we can hard
ly tbrbear asking, whether this be a band of
malefactors and felons, flying from justice?—
What are their crimes that they hide them
selves in darkness? To what punishment ate
they exposed that, to avoid it, men, and women,
and children, thus encounter the surf of the
North Sea, and the terrors of a night storm ?
What induces this armed pursuit after them,
and this arrest of the poor fugitives of all ag
es, and both sexes? Truth docs not allow us
to answer these inquiries in a mauner that docs
credit to the teimlom or Juxtire of the times.
This was not the flight of guilt, but of virtue.
It was an bumble ami jiearcahlc religion. fly
ing from causeless oppression. It was con
science. attempting to escape from the arbitra
ry rule of tlie Stuarts. It was Koldnson and
Brewster leading off their little band from
their notire mil. at first to fl:id a shelter on the
shores of the neighboring couliueut (in Hol
land). but ultimately to c.michither; and hav
ing surmounted all difficulties, and braved a
thousand ilaugers, to And here a place of ref
uge, and of rest. Thanks be to God that this
"l"'t was honored as the asylum of religions
liberty. May its standard, reared here, re
main forever! May It rise up a« high as heav
en, till its banner si util Ian the air of both con
tinent*, and wave as a glorious ensign of
i peace and serenity to the uatioii!
They merely -represented themselves," did
j they, as “fleeing from persecution” ? a preten
sbm discredited by the Episcopalian writer of
the Hallowed Gazette. That must be a man
very apt in history. and withal, quite itnti-eec
larian, and liberal, himself, like his ancestor
Pop ham!
But it is time, high time, that the editor of
the Kennebec Courier, yonr correspondent
“Maine," and all other ignoramuses of history,
are set right with regard to the religious liber
ality of tlie Pilgrims, whom they have tra
duced as a set of intolerable bigots, that hung
the peace Ail Quakers, hanished the conscien
tious Baptists, and persecuted the godly witch
es of Salem to death. These charges liave
lieeu rung so many times liy “the Church,"—
which, from Queen Elizabeth's time to the
present, has always hated the Puritans—the
Independents—theCongregationalists.ror their
democratic churcli organization, that it is time
they were corrected, in justice to tlie futhrrs of
remibliranistn in America.
When these poor, persecuted Pilgrims, driv
from their homes
" as Webster says,
deck of the May
>nt to enter upon
he Atlantic, to se
‘n place of refuge
Ijinson, addressed
ruly catholic and
sd the admiration
of all “liberal"’ men throughout the world.—
No man ever had exerted a greater influence
over his brethren, than the amiable and devout
Robinson had over his little persecuted, exiled
flock. No church ever imbibed more fully
the spirit of their beloved pastor. And there
on that deck, addressing them for the last
time, he solemnly charged them, as about
to go forth to establish a new empire in a new
world, to call no man master—to stand forever
independent of all 1‘opex, and Bitltop*—to
think for thcmnelces, and to act for themnelve*,
owning no eccllsiastical allegiance to any hu
man being, but to Chkist alone. lie charged
them to be bound by no human ereed*, but to
study, understand, and interpret the Scriptures
according to their own convictions of truth
ami duty. He told them he was fully “per
suaded that God had yet many new truths to
bring out of His Word, of which neither they,
nor any other fchurch were yet apprised; and
charged them to be ever ready to receive it,
let it come from whence and from whom it
might.
Did this look like xnctnrixmf Was this il
liberal t Was this intolerance? The Courier
says, “the Pilgrims who came from Holland,
and landed on the Plymouth Rock in
were illilsiral and selllsh iu their religious
views! Nothing—nothing—could be farther
from the fact. Never was there a body of men
who went forth with purer Ideas of relig
ious liberty and independence. It was
in accordance of the solemn charge of Kohiu
son, that after they left him in Holland, and
were upon the ocean, they formed that famous
compact w hich coulained the very need of all
the free institutions of this country, that secure
to every mau the principles of civil and relig
ions lilierty. whereby all are free to worship
God according to the dictates of their oten con
science*.
^uii unci uicj iuimii u ui i iyniiMiiii, (lici iiiCJ
establish a sectarian church like the Episco
pal, which would allow no person to join It
uidess he subscribed to their creed, and which
would excommunicate and persecute all who
dissented from it? No—no—they had no
written creed—they would allow no such iron
bedstead in their communion. The Bible, the
Bible only, was their creed, and every one was
at liberty to read and interpret it for himself.
Was this “illiberal and intolerant?" When,
even, did Mr. Newman's “eetablished church”
practise such a liberality ? Never—never to
this day, neither at home, In England, nor
abroad, as it is or ought to be, iu America.—
But then they hung the Quakers. This
is untrue,—there were no Quakers in their
whole colony. They banished Roger Williams,
the Baptist, to Rhode Island. This, too, is
false. It was the aristocratic mcmliers of the
“established church” iu another colony—the
Massachusetts—who drove Roger Williams
away from them; and it was “the English Pu
ritans who came from Holland, and landed on
Plymouth Rock iu 1620,” who offered him an
asylum, invited him thither for security, and
actually employed him as their pastor! Inde
pendents or Congrcgationalists as they were,
they even received a Baptist as their pastor
for a season, until lie should be able to make
a settlement in Rhode Island. Was this per
secuting and banishing the Baptists ? Did the
Episcopalians ever treat the Baptists or any
other dissenting denomination with like liber
ality ? Nay, to this day, would au Episcopal
1 clergyman or church allow a Baptist, a Con
gregational 1st, a Methodist, or any other min
ister than a Roman Catholic audj a English
Episcopalian, to enter an Episcopal pulpit and
( deliver a sermon? We a»k the editor of the
ilaliowcll Courier, who so much admires Uic
tin iiiwi" ui iu«- vuurcu in ioc Hull* 01
Elitalietli; that drove our (allien from home,
because they were so “liberal iu their views
ami tolerant in their opiuiou,” it, tills very day,
a Baptist clergy man should offer to preach in
; the little Episcopal mart in-house iu Hallowed,
its priest or its vestry, of which Mr. Newman
is one, would allow him to occupy its pulpit
for a single service a as <io-imJ minister? We
know they would not. Away, then, with such
men's admiration of lilierality and tolerance;
and away with their contempt of the Pilgrims
j for the w ant of those virtues.
It should be known that the slandered Ply
' mouth Colony was a very different tiling from
; the Massachusetts Colony. That was not sce
\ tarian—that was not aristocratic—that was not
j bigotted—that was never intolerant. It was
! a humble body of religions brethren who came
. here poor to enjoy freedom from the pensecu
1 tion of tlie English Church. On the quay of
Deli Haven, in the cabin of tile May Flower,
on tlie Rock of Plymouth, they laid the iound
alion of ad tlie civil and religious democracy,
which we now enjoy. On tlie contrary, tlie
settlers of Massachusetts were not exiles.
Generally they were men ol wealth belonging
to tlie English Church ami aristocracy. Tltey
were not separatists, they claimed membership
ltj the established church,aml differed from it on
ly in ahjur'nuj the Pofiish forms of its icorshiit.
Iu due time this abjuration inode Congregn
tionalUts of them—as were the Puritans In-fore
them; hut for years and years they hated the
Plymouth Colonists as bad as did their breth
ren in England tn-fore them. These were the
men who lianished Baptists,hung Quakers and
i killed witches. They came honestly by their
intolerant habits; they learned them at home
in the bosom of their "estalilislH-d” church.
So great was their hatred and contempt of the
Pilgrim Fathers of the Plymouth Colony, that
' it was not till seresttf-toco yeors offer the Pu
ritan Church landed on the Rock, that a union
between the two Colonies took place.
The stale slanders against the original set
tler* of New England are unworthy any man
who has a drop of Vanki-e blood iu his veins.
“It Is an ill bird that bewrays Its own nest.”
