By the charter ot tho momtimont society the President ol the United States ia ex officio tbe President of th society, and tb (iovornor of the sen. arate States, respectively, it vice. pre, dents; thus tho interests of the peo ple are doubly guarded, and by the provisions of this bill no money can be paid out of tbi appropriation except as the work progresses, and then only upon estl mate mad by th engineer vusigw ui toe worn, approved by tho Prosidont of th United State. It is an enterprise in Which the whole country holds an interest. Ai the glory of the great man to whom this irtouie or affection anu) gratitude it to be paid -belong, to no one State or sec tion, but is th glory of th nation, so Is this mark of Mteem designed to be national Is th fullest n. and (he. this tvannn, if th ns other, is it incnnv i tho ground and leave not a silicic stone to mark Die soeno of our shame than permit it to remain in its nrosent euuuivion as a perpetual stigma ol re proach on American oiviliaaUon and patriotism. But I have faith that the United State will not pormit herself to bt outdone in paying homage to ber own distinguished citnons. I hare lsitb tbat thor is enough patriotism lult io the lime to Ibra-ot elf and tbo- present in doing a simple aot of uuty in making the necessary appropriation- on tho part of the Govern, ment for tho completion of the Monu ment. . Too many evidence havo pre sented lliomsalres oa this floor within th post tew months that, notwith. standing th fact that many men hero within th last iflMoyear have stood fao to lac ss loo in hoUv-exntesuwt rivll wsn, wo are to-day mora closely heart of tho Chines child at his moth or' knee ; but when that child is plac ed in the care of the publio teacher, to this reverence for parents and super iors is added as the first essential a strict course of moral culture, which places tbe- Chinese citizon aa found in his native country on a level to which by no means overy one in this cnliirht- onod itopublio can aspiro. If there is one thing demanded Iherelore above others , in our school systems it is tb higher degree of moral culture; it is mat t tie lives oi our Illustrious men shall bo held up beloro tho youth of our country ior emulation. And this was never more true than it is to-day, when corruption creeps into high places and men holding offices ot high publio trust are found unfaithful ; nevor more important than it ta to-day, when tb sacred obligations of the official oatb are forgotten and the indiscretion and criminal acts or publio ottlcials cauje th nation to hang its head io shame at tbe deeds of those whom it ha made its trusted publio servants. On this account,' also, would I therefore havo this monument hastened to an early completion, tbat the youth of our land might not fail to study the character of the great aod good men wno laid tbe loundation ot this Gov ernment, aud tbat, studying these characters and tbe principles of moral ity of which they are the outcrowth aud upon which tbey are based as the superstructure npon iu foundation, their own oharaoter may be so estab lished and their own lives be so shaped that tbe future shall know them a fully coming up to tb high Jefferso- nian standard ol honesty, inteirritv. and faithfulness. I can conceive of no higher compliment than tbe iuoVment of the nation that its servants have been conscientiously faithful to their trust; and 1 would permit no occasion to pass unheeded of making publio recognition of tbe wis deeds ot creat and good moo ; nor, on the other hand, can I picture to my mind a docpor degradation than is his who falls W cause of his unfaithfulness in the dis cbarge ot those public duties which are the attendants of the public posi tion to which he was exalted. Let us therefore not fail in our duty to dace before our youth, as a permanent me morial wherever it ia possible, monu monts to tho virtues of the groat and good of our land. Generations to fol low will reverence the memory of those who have not only been men of virtue in themsclvos, but wbo have also not failod to pay tribute to tbe virtues of the great and good of the past 1 claim, too, tbat it is th duty of every American citisen to inculcate in tho hearts of his conntrvmen. and ea. pecially in the heart of his own chil dren, a love tor our country, her insti tutions, and her men. Let patriotism be instilled into the hearts of our chil dren ; let them learn to reverenoe and look up to tbe Government which pro tects them ; let them feel that npon them will devolve duties in the future in protecting our institutions, and the oouutry ia safe against encroachments from without and dissentions from within. Already have foreign nations learned to regard us as s model fienub- lio, and, Ihoueh trite, it is none the loss truo that the oppressed and down trodden of the world have learned to look to America as an asylum and a refuge. The last two decades have wituessed the grand spectacle of pow erful foreign nations sending their highest and most intelligent officials to our shores to study our principles of government and witness their applica tion. Fven China and Japan, our an tipodes, have sent to us from the ends ot the earth th youth of their highest lamines to oe instructed in our institu tions of learning. But not alono have our institutions and principles of gov rnment been studied by foreign pow ers ; they liave also been corned, and republics have sprung up and flourish ed wherever these principles have been tried. Switzerland, in ber Alpine fast nesses, defying tho great powers of Rllmnnr lit I la f?Mr. 1. - U; . 1. 1 ,. - , w.vwv, uv nil in j. iKva of counties heroes and scholars; pow erful France, that gave us Lafayette in tbe Revolution : and far-off Jnn.n little but powerful and ant to learn, have all looked to os and in a measure copied our example. Nor have we yet reached tho pinnacle of our glory and greatness. Th great Jefferson, ap prehensive that tbe tascinationa of Ku ropo might prove too great a tempta tion to tbe now .Republic, hoped that an "ocean of fire" might roll between the Old World and the New. There may have been causa for this anxiety, but, if so, it exists no longer. It is the New World that now wields the influ- euce upon the Old. It is too much to bone that year by year this influence shall grow stronger? uut while our example as a frovern- mont is bearing rich fruits beyond tho seas, lot us not forget tbe debts we owe to those of tbe past whose blood ce mented the links that bindTus togethor as a nation. Lot us nover forgot that had not brave hearts and strong hands guided the helm of state in the infancy ol the iiepu blio, we must havo drifted into nttor and hopeless anarchy. We are too prone in th days of our afflu ence and powor to forgot that it is not to ourselves we owe our greatness, but ratbor to those who a hundred years ago laid broad and deep and strong the foundations for this grand and powerful superstructure reared for tho American people. Having thoroforo full faith in our Government, having lull faith in our institutions, having full faith in tho patriotism of the nation. I anneal to you and to your patriotism, aa th representatives of the people and the peoplo's faith, that you lend yonr aid in securing the oouiplotion of the Washington Monument. Itisaarand. a noble work, and it Is for this Con gross towinforitsclf laurels withwhich our predecessors failod to dock their brows. I appeal to you as men loving the Government, ol which von am a fundamental part, that yoa let not tb new century b ushered in upon as without showing to our people and showing to the world that wo all rover enco the name of Washington and that wo delight to do honor and reverence to hisvnemory. W have been highly prosperous as a nation. We lava shown to tbe world that our Govern ment is based on principle as endur ing as adamant. Let ua show to th world that wo are proud ot tb heroes who established that Government and that, though w havo grown rich and great and rowsi-ful, wo are not un mindful of the debt waowo their mem ory. Lottbismonuraentbooompleted, that that debt may at least be nar. tially cancelled and that may show to me woria mat we nave not forgotten th virtues of th Illustrious Father of bis Country. .
