trr> publishers in offering ihe above work
r5 , an enlightened and discriminiting
.i r feel confident of receiving that en
?ub o’ement which has hitherto been so li
courJ,° bestowed upon all productions of me*
^ra \lUUng the many orators who have dis
rl,1' 1 tbeir eloquence at the bar, both in
i ^rica and in Europe, none hare been
,uCCessfuI in touching the finest feel
pt)[ o,e heart, and exciting the noblest
in-,5i *lS 0t the soul, than Mr. Phillips. His
V , ,^cS are replete with metaphor, anil
yPet^ in a great degree, all that felicious
^ness of which the English language
C f!‘susceptible. Hiseulogium on the ini
Washington, is ot itself a inaster
:‘ cce of eloquence. In his character ot Bo
KyarU, he paints the actions of that won
fflul personage in language at once sub
j.nleand imposing : with all the chasteness
ud precision of an historian, he recapitu
?,{.Jhis movements from the cradle to the
‘‘‘^p^-lYoin the camp to the throne—aud
frora the elevated station of an em
!o that of an exile and captive—there
M.0vill be read w ith lively interest by all
tiassesof readers; and the citizens of this
republic, may. w hile perusing the immorali
t;,.s and vices of Europeans, rejoice that in
(his country such a crime is almost unknown,
jjii speeches on the Emancipation of the
Homan Catholics of Ireland, need no com
n!ent_they speak for themselves—and un
told to mankind the history of a class of men,
who,although denied many political and ci
vil privileges, have always been known to
be the friends of their country in times of
danger and in battle.—The American reader
mu^t view with indignation the various op
prrssien under which a great portion of that
gallant and patriotic people at present labor ;
and “ ages yet unborn’' will lament the ex
pttnee of a code which prevents man from
whipinghis Creator according to the dic
tates of his own conscience.
The publishers, therefore, feeling anima
ted by a desire to present to the American
public, specimens of sublime and chaste elo
quence, which has been so often exerted in
the cause of benevolence and the noblest
rights of human nature, w ith respectful dif
fidence invite the patronage of all classes
who are interested in the display of national,
social, aod forensic oratory.
