This Slime conflict made Englaud un
settled tor live hundred veara?from
William. Duke of Nonuanflv to mi
lium of Orange. It was just" wheu tliU
contest was coming to its height that
emigration commenced to this count rv
Cromwell, the leader of the ?"Ki
party, atone time was on the point of
giving up the contest and emigrating
with his chosen braves to this country
of better hopes. Under his leadership,
i however, the republican form finally
prevailed; so far at least as to lie the
ruling element in the English govern
ment. When the question was settled
iu England by the triumph of republi
can principles, the contest was trans
ferred to this continent.
In the year 1020 the May Flower land
ed on Plymouth Rock a band ol Puri
tans. Driven by religious, .persecution
from their own, they sought m a for
eign land tlie liberty of conscience they
clulmed as their right. '
About tliesame time Jamestown, \ a.,
was nettled by a company of "noblemen
gentlemen and merchants, iiceompa
nied by a class of menials. These vert
rcifrcuciitative settlements. Oil Plymouth
Hock was planted the seed of liberty
the germ of a higher civilization than
the world had ever witnessed?a civili
zation in which thought is IVee, learn
ing fostered, every man's rights ro
spected?where "labor is compensated
and honored"?where the poor find
protection, the oppressed an asylum,
libert y a home, und science and religlou
a sanctuary. ....
Jamestown produced a race directly
opposite. III the Dutch ships was the
seed of a social order radically different
and antagonistic. Here one class or
society was composed of persons des
pising labor?of idle and dissolute hab
its; the other a menial race, doomed to
ignorance and nnremuneratcd toil,
with "no rights which a white man is
hound to respect." This system bore
its natural rruit?ignorance, licentious
ness, oppression, and strife. It put
shackles on black limbs, and padlocks
on white lips. Governor Berkley, of
Virginia, in his report to the Privy
Councils ill 1071, says: "I thank God
there are no free schools and printing,
presses, and X hope .we shall not have
these hundred years, for learning has
brought disobedience, and heresy, and
sects into the world, and printing has
divulged them. God koep us from both."
Oil Plvinoutli Hock was planted free- |
doni. At Jamestown oppression?here I
democracy ? there despotism. These
two systems cannot co-exist harmoni
ously." Antagonistic in spirit and pur
pose", they must come in collision.
Thus, on American soil, is the old
contest, made up of the same elements
of which it was composed in England.
The great question hero, as it was there,
is for supremacy?for power.
Plymouth Hock claimed the right to
speak. "All men are created equal.
They are endowed witll certain inalien
able rights, among these are life, lib
ertv and the pursuit of happiness.
"Silence!" cried Jamestown. "Not a
moment," replied Plymouth Rock.
"Shut up or I'll make you," demanded
Jamestown. As the years passed away
the controversy waxed warmer. In the
race for empire, they start for the Pa
cific. Plymouth Rock outstrips and
plants tile standard ol" liberty oil the
broad plains oftlie West. Jamestown
liecoines enraged. They confront in
the national councils. Plymouth Rock
out-argues. Jamestown grows desper
ate and appeals to the bludgeon. Hut .
blows would not answer for arguments.
They meet at the ballot-box. Plymoth
Rock outvotes. Jamestown, in ungov
ernable rage and passion, unslieatlis
the sword, determined to rule or ruin;
and, haughtily spurning every over
ture and compromise, presented his ri
val the single alternative, "submit or
<lie." Plymouth Rock, ill t lie calm con
sciousness of the right, replied, "Dieif I
HIit.tf, but submit / never will.'*
Tliev met on the Held of blood. Four
vears'tlie conflict raged, and near the
spot where the teed was planted, James
town expired. Plymouth Rock lias out
stripped, outwitted, outargtied, out
voted, outgeneraled and out fought, her
rivul?overpowered him?killed him.
To-day in' is buried. No dirge Is sung
at his "funeral. His obsequies are per
formed, not with expressions of griei,
but amid the rejoicings of earth and the
shouts of heaven. Buried now so deep,
we hope he will never have a resurrec
tion, and may God grant his miserable
ghost may never revisit this laud of the
So the great question oft lie ages is
settled. The "irrepressible contliet" is
ended, in this eountry, in favor of free
dom. The struggle which commenced
in the interest ofaristoctticy and for the
extension and iierpetuBUon or oppres
sion, lias terminated In the triumph or
domestic principles and the abolition of
slavery. Tlie sword was raised to
striko down freedom. The grasp was
ilrni ? the arm which wielded it was
strong. The head offroedom seemed de
fenseless. The nation trembled. The

there an hour of such intense anxiety.

recoiled upon Uie head of those who
dealt the blow. Thus lUustraUng the
truth or the divine word, "His mischief

war is over. The doctrines of the decla
ration vindicated. I Our government
sustained; its brave defenders returned,
and Liberty is secure m this, her best
retreat. Henceforth this anniversary
will be doubly precious. It is conse
crated anew, to freedom aB well as in
dependence. While it serves to cele
brate our deliverance from foreign
tyranny, it will commemorate our
triumph over domestic treason. Here
after when the light of this glad dnj
meets the eye of the American patriot,
It will call to lite remembrance the
scenes of the Great Rebellion, as well
as those of the Revolution, and lnspiro

these changes for the better or for the
worse? We hope for the better. God
will make the-wrath of mail to praise
him, educe good out of evil, and order
out of conftasion.
As to the results of the conflict it may
be too soon to speak with confidence.
But something may be set down as
fact8, and if the incidents of the past
throw light on the future, and "coming
'events cast their shadow before, we
may predict other things with some de

Both citizens and scholars indulged
freely, enjoying the good things which

been placed at each table, and blessings
asked by the ministers present. You

Jill partook to satiety; indeed the most

The few paroled rebels in attendance,
