Llltou Iutclll|?Dc?r: , No one who hid experience ol our war u( the rebellion can doubt that it wm the greatest calamity that could befall thia nation except a severance of the Union; nor can the reHecting fail to know that whenever the Federal Government ii un* able to nlaintain its constitutional power over ever/ mile of the territory within its limit*, then the torch will be lighted for perpetual border war, a crumbling of the sectlona into principalities and a universal anarchy, ending In despotism. Gen. Washington doubtlens did more than any other man in organizing our armiea, fighting our battles, and aiding by his wisdom ami moderation in bringing order out of the chaos of the battle and anarchy that victory too often engenders. His life and services have made the 22d of February almost as sacred as the birthday of the country, and on its centennial anniversary, 1832,every gun wait tireil, every trumpet blown, every liag floated to the breeze, while the thunder tones of Uie orator and the song of the poet were heard in every city and village of the land. It was a day of rejoicing in our country, thanks to God who had brought us through the Red Sea and to the Moses that nuided our foot *tep? to the land of law, liberty and pp.ice. It wan well. It was dne from a nation of patriots. Thursday, tlio 12th of April, 1877, in the centennial anniversary of the birth of Henry Clay,who although his infant Voice only whs heard amidst the turmoil ot the tight for liberty, was destined alone, for near a half ?'entury,to calm the waves of discord and preserve the infant nation from civil war nnd dissolution, until her strength was equal to the conflict. Yes, "Peace, too,hath its victories," and again, again, and again he came to her side, took her in his arms, and with hia voice calmed the turbulent wave*, guiding her to a home of i?eace and rest, yet we hew- no note of preparation in the land, no auggeation that ever each, a onewae born or lived. lias the Centennial fire seared otir memories, or "a change come o'er the face of all things earthly," or have we forgotten Joshua? No sound of preparation i? heard even in Wheeling, among your noddies or the public, to pay any attention to the day, or revive any reremembrance of the man, which, perhuiM even more than any other plat e, xhoulu cherish his memory. Have all your old citizens forgotten that he wax ihe originator of the National road and bore it through to the last, against the fiercest opposition of the whole South? mai mat law tue toumiation ol Tour early pro^porily; nay, buitl your city where it is. Have they "forgotten the ti mo when that was the only avenue to the Went, when that road from Cumberland to \\heeling -was lined with the white wagon*, larger than the burthen train of an army, bearing to the Went the comfort* ami luxuries of life, when your wharf was lined with steamboats, taking in ami putting out their passengers and freight; when your stages all night and all day thundered through the street*; the emigrant wagon* whitened your utablo yard-*, ami their owners sought homes among you; when your merchant* and mechanics were all busy; while those in many of the towns were languishing for employment! Yet these things were. There was a time when there was a monument erected to his memory live miles out the road. AVho reads it now except tlie truant' school |?oy as he ebies a stone at the squirrel on its summit. It is cold and alone; but who shall say that the spirit of the great patriot does not sometimes stand upon it and look upon the devastation of his great work, as did Marius upon the ruins of Carthage. The world moves, but man learns only by the great book of the past. You lovcu him too. Do vou not remember the long trains of carriages wilh their hands and banners that went up our Wheeling hill, to bring him in when he was coming in the stage -how the wharf and river hank were lined with men, women and children, when the large, hoarse whistle of the ateamer announced that lie was on board, how the trumpet to the canon" spoke and all the heavners; how you crowded to get a grasp of his hand as if you would transmit it as a legacy to your descend* ant#; how you in thousands looked up to that brilliant smile that often graced his face and lighted up his broad brow, while you listened to his words of wisdom tittered in a voice melodious as the song of birds. But it was so everywhere. He loved his country and all patriots' loved him. Going to the Senate with but the years that would admit him to its sacred' precincts, and with little knowledge, except what was intuitive, he won hearts and power over men without a i*rceptible Hl'ort. Foremost in all good lie was a man honored above all around, He was elected Speaker of the House on first entering its halls and so continued while he remained there. His soul took fire at the wrongs of Greece and burned at those of his own country. Hissuavityjaml talent were mainly instrumental in securing the favorable treaty Client^ and in 1820 he commenced his life work of healing the discords of his country. Ho knew the character of the people with whom he had to deal. The "Missouri Compromise" was the first measure. Protection to American Industry was his favorite purpose. In 1817 he secured an imperfect tariff. in 1828 another, but to preserve theUnion ho was forced to the compromise of 1833. It is true Gen. Jackson said to the rebels of 1832, "I will hang you as high as Haatuan," but the administration narty then having the Executive and House, proposed to reduce duties to an odvalorem of sixteen per cent. Mr.Clay came to the rescue, and the result was a gradual reduction to twenty per cent and homo valuation. Ho-was the framer of the truly protectivo tariff of 1842. In 1344 his effort to soothe the South on the Texas question cost him New York and the Presidency and the country a war. He was forccd, through the madness of the Southern fireaters to present and urge through the fugitive slave law, for which he is much blamed by many who ars ignorant of the facts; but which fhe writer, who considered the law the most vile and oppressive ever imposed upon a people, regards as one of the most glorious acts of his life. ' 1 derive the facts from his own words as wfll as other sources. Mason, of Virginia, the delegate of tho Southern caucus, backed by a largo number of Northern Democrats, presented him the bill as it passed, lie replied, "It is unconstitutional and oppressive." "I know it, but that bill, word for word, ia our ultimatum, an4 we have enough solemnly pledged to our cause from the North to carry it through. If it is not passed wo rebel?if it is the North must." In the language of Mr. Clay, "1 had confidence in the North, and knew the South wotild do as they proposed." In this act Mr. Clay sacrigced his own feeling* to the good of his country, more than in any other act of his life, and had he failed there, the reItellion would ltave Ixen, the war on Northern soil and a hand to hand tight, with a large Southern lirmy fresh from the fields of Alexieo. Uon. Taylor first hfttng boon slain as he was,* the separation might well have bet-n effected. Blame him not. The North needed another insult and wrong and even that did not intensify her. feeling and unite her people; butthe guardian of his country's weal and Union was at his end on earth. Had ho been alive, Air. Douglass would have dared as well, unarmed, to have clutched ths lion in his wrath as to hart presented the Ktuu, Nebraska bill and urged its passage. Even that failed folly to arouse the North. It took the infamy of Buchanan's administration , to do that, and the firing on Fort garnter , to bring out the love of country from many. , Had Mr. Clay been alive when the rebellion came, no one can for a moment doubt on which aide he would have been, 1 although at the aacrifice of all bat his love of the Union, one and inseparable. No onewho heard him not cftn appreciate hi* eloquence, which at all timea chained every eye and ear within the sound of hia voice. No one who did not closely follow his acta, and appreciate his motivea and purposes or perpetual Union as the only source of his. country'a life, csn estimate his true aervioes to his country and the cause of liberty; and no one who did not know him well, can feel hia genial qualities united with an honor untarnished by a thought,or hil contempt of all fraud or chicanery, or appreciate the wisdom and interest of his conservetiam. I will quote one remark that seemed to drop from him very carelesaly that would do much good if written In indellible ink, on the heart of every man who has too much "ambition for his energy," as Billy Keed mid of hia horse that fell ill the shafts while drawing a heavy load. In convernation one evening, in 1837, I remarked; "Is it not strange that Mr. Dallai, old aa he in, and with his standing at the bar. should except that Kuseian mission. He laughed, and replied: "He evidently thought I wonld think so, too, for I met him at ft hotel in Baltimore and he seemed to avoid me, until I determined to corner him, when he said: "I presume you think H strange that I accepted tbla Russian mission, but the truth is I am (joor and have sons to eduoate and estabish in life." I replied: "7pretumeywr experience irUl induct you to inninul them not to enter public lijt until they ore able to live without ita rmolumcnts." I have never heard more wisdom in as few words; but 1 began this simply to suggeet that some notice tthnillrl >M tnlron nltlm I'anUnniil anniversary of the birth of a man who filled 10 large a apace, ho nobly, in the uublic mind as did.
