Speech of S. S. Murry, Esq. July
Fourth 1855, at St. Mary's Chapel.
WIlkesville Township, Vinton
County, Ohio.
Ladies, Uenthnicn and Fellow Citizens:
It is with diffidence that 1 arise to
Address you on this occasion; I feci my
inability to do so, in a manner deserv
ing of the day and the assembled muU
titudes around me; I could wish you a
more able speaker: fur the intelligence
that beams from every eje, almost
makes mc shrink lroni the task I have
This day, fellow citizen?, is certain
ly more worthy of our most humble ad
oration than anything terrestial, and
the men of 1776 of the greatest honors.
When, from the commencement of time
down to that day, did the world ever
hear such honorable and glorious sen
timents of political economy from mor
tal man, as was promulgated on this
day, 79 years ago, by that noWe band
of patriots, assembled in Philadelphia,
Pa , in the publication of the Declara
tion of Independence, that has just been
read in your hearing sentiments that
has no parallel on earth, (except in the
teachings ot the Savior of the world.)
When did the world ever hear, before
that time, that most noble and soul-reviving
sentiment, that all men are, by
nature, created equal, and endowed
with certain inalienable rights, among
which, is lite, liberty, and the pursuit
of happines. These principles were
never spoken in the ear of the world
before they were new they are the
propeity ot the United State?, held and
preterved for the benefit of all mankind.
The world was startled when she heard
them; and Kings and Monarchs trem
bled at their utterance. The greatest
ruling Sovereign in the world, King
George the 111, of England, drew him
self up to his full height of majestical
dignity and proclaimed, "My .subjects
shall be conquered in North America;"
and for this purpose he mustered his
armys', and commissioned Lord Howe,
and others, to commence the work ol
subjugation. They thought it would;
be but sport to humble the spirits of
me Americans, ana cause them to beg
for mercy at the feet of their haughty
Sovereign, who ruled with mighty sway
in Great Britton and North America.
But they were mistaken in their men;
for from the time that the spark from
the smitten steel ignited the powder in
the riffles of the Americans, at Lex ing.
ton, on the 19th day of April, 1775,
until the glorious termination of the
war at Yorktown, did the British ruN
ers know that they had no ordinary en
emy to contend against, nor no cring
ing sycophanU to crouch at their bid
ding. Yes,fellow citizens,on this day,
1776, a nation of freemen were spoken
into-, existence, in opposition to the
wishes ancfefforts of that haughty ;ru?
ler, King Cfeorge the I II,' and these
great and ennobling truths proclaimed,
which secures to us this day our ' liber
ties and our social enjoyments. Can
we tnen honor cue day, and the men ot
that day, too highlyt I think not. Can
we, omnia uay, snow too much grati
tude, love and respect for the forefath
ers of our country? Go with me to
the Hall of the Colonial Congress, and
see who 19 assembled there on this great
and momentous occasion momentous
not only to the American colonies, but
to the world such as never had been,
and, perhaps, uever will be again, and
what do we see there? Men assembled
for the purpose of empty show and pa
rade,decked out in costly robes of State?
No! We see men there dressed in the
plain garb of the common people, to
make no show, but with the wisdom
of their heads and goodness of their
hearts they did make it; for the wis
dom of the world yes, the wisdom of
the world, was there; and a John Han
cock, with a price upon his head, presi
ding over that body the greatest that
ever met upon the Globe and see them
choose their committee to draft a dec
laration ot their principles, and of their
independent. Thos. Jefl'erson, Bern.
Franklin, and John Adams were chos
en, and nobly did they perform the
work assigned them; see them return
and present their labors to the wise men
assembled; hear them plead for the
principles therein set forth; hear them
pronounce the emphatic yea! see them
pass it, and see them raise the pen,
dipped in the ink of pure love, (tor I
can cell it no other.) and dash their
whole souls into their pen, as did John
Hancock, when they pledged each to
the other their lives, their fortunes, and
their sacred honors, to secure the liber
ties we this day enjoy, and then say it
we can honor them to much, or esteem
the day too highl? Every heart in
this assembly must respond with me
we cannot!
But to appreciate fully the principles
of the Government under which we
live, and give full weight to the acts of
our forefathers, we must compare them
with the Governments and acts of men
of other countries; tor we might as well
think of studying Astronomy without
the aid ot Mathematics, as to appreci
ate the principles (and the blessings
that flow from them) of our Govern
aient without comparing them with
others. Now let us take a short view
of the world, from the earliest time
down to the present: In the early times
of the world, we read in the Holy Writ
that men did establish Governments;
and although we are told they were
guided by the hand of the Lord, we
find, from some cause or other, their
Governments were imperfect, and men
and nations preying upon one another
the principles of life, liberty, and the
pursuit ot happiness, entirely left out,
or overlooked and men ruled only by
the strong arm of physical force alone.
Come down to Moses' time, and we
tind a Government in Egypt, and Pha
ro their ruler, and we find that this ru
ler held the children of Israel in bond
age,and would not let them go, although
the Lord visited the land with locusts,
frogs and lice.- Remember that Pharo
gave these people noplace of honor or
of profit in his Government, but made
them hewers of wood, and drawers ot
water, tor his people; it then could not
have been a Government like ours.
Let us follow Moses, after he has led
the children of Israel out of Egypt,
and they had planted their Government
in the Promised Land. Do we find
there a Government of equal rights
Government that would be as reliable
at this day? Although they had Moses'
written laws, wrote by the special or
ders of a Supreme Being, yet they
tailed to establish a Government on the
true principles of equal rights and equal
justice to all.
JNext, we see small Governments
ai-ue on different parts of the Eastern
Continent, and the people governed by
the will of one man; as a god, they
looked to hi in for their lives and their
happiness for liberty, such as we en
joy, they did not know. The greatest
law-giver we find on the earth after
Moses, until Christ's time, was Sycur
gus, of Sparty; although his territories
were small, and his people not numer
ous, they withstood for centuries the
attacks of the more numerous nations
around them. And why 9 Because
their Government was more closely as
similated to the principles of the rights
of men, and thus resembles . our own
more closely than any that had prece
ded his, for he had a council elected by
the people, to make laws for them; but;
they were not elected as our Senators
and Representatives are, by ballot and
the calm judgment of the people, but
in a novel way: there were judges of
elections selected and placed in a room
where they could hear the people; and
as the candidates presented themselves
the people cheered, and the man who
received the most hearty cheers from
the people, was declared elected. Thus
was established an election of their ru
lers, by the people of Sparty. But
Sparty fell; the greatness of that once
small band of Patriots has fled, and the
place of their State is known no more
among the nations of the earth. They
fell a prey to that more powerful Gov
ernment, Rome; whose rise and progress
cast sucn a naio or giory around the
name of a Roman, that 'even caused
Paul, the aposlal, and follower of the
meek and lowly Redeemer, to declare,
when in trouble, that he was a Roman
citizen." Now what kind of a Govern
ment had Rome? It was said to be a
republic, but was it such a republic as
ours? ' Did it secure to the Roman cit
izen all his natural rights? Did it af
ford her citizens all the liberties that
ours does the American citizen? Did
she consider that Governments were
instituted among men, as well for the
governed as the Governor? Did she
act up to a true Democracy? by this
word I mean a government of the ieo
pie. Did she, al ter establishing ann
ate of wise men, and her Courts of jus
tice, execute her laws for the advance
ment of her people, and for their good?
Did she dispense justice with an even
hand; to the great and small, rich and
poor alike, and cause them to cling,
with a strong hand and a willing heart,
to institutions which she had establish
ed? She did not. Although Rome
flourished in great splendor for many
centuries, and done much to ameliorate
the sufferings of mankind, yet she failed
to attain that high and lofty position
occupied by the American people, by
the instrumentality ot our forefathers,
by the establishment of this glorious
Union under which we live, and by
the perpetuation of the principles that
were given to the world on the 4th day
of July, 1776. We may yet attain a
greater height of national prosperity
and individual fjoyments. But Rome
fell her Government was delective
and great was the struggle of her death;
she was three hundred years in yielding
up ner liberties. . UarK and benighted
times rolled o'er the earth after her fall,
and llio hearts of . mensunk within
them; the spirit of liberty seemed to
have taken its lliglit from the world
forever! But not so, my fellow citi
zens; although it slumbered long in its
exile and debauch, and the animal pas
sions of man had their sway, and Kings
and Princes rioted on the wealth and
labor of the people, it only waited to
break forth with more force, in the bo
soms of the American people, and on
her soil to re.ir its head, never more to
leave, I tiust, this land of Liberty. If
we are true to ourselves, our country,
and the world, our career as a free and
independent nation will far outstrip all
the Governments, in true greatness, that
has gone before us since the world be
gan. What a trust then, fellow citizens,
is delivered into our hands. Shall we
prove recreant to that trust? Shall we
suffer our Government to fall by party
strife, as Rome fell. Cazsar had a par
ty,and the Senate had a party, but Rome
had no party; Kome fell, and Caesar
and the Senate fell with her. Shall
this be the fate of this glorious Union?
Shall we la 1 1 by party strife, by deny
ing the right of citizenship to those
who may come among us from a foreign
clime? Shall we back ourselves up in
our nativity and rally round that selfish
cry of, "Americans should rule Ameri
ca;" thus casting a stigma on the
names ot some of the greatest men ol
the Revolution? I answer no! and ev
ery American will answer no! and if 1
had the eloquence of a Demosthenese
and was on the highest peak ot the
Rocky mountains, with a voice louder
than ten-told thunder, 1 would proclaim
to the American people, and to the
world, "Let America bb ruled by
Principles;" and I would invite the
down-trodden of all the nations of the
earth to come and partake of our glo
rious liberties. Was this Union es
tablished, and our liberties secured, by
Americans alone? History says not;
the names attached to the Declaration
of Independence says not for we find
there the names of Burton, Guinett,
and Robert Morris, natives of England;
James Smith, George Tyler, and Alath
ew Thurston, natives of Ireland; John
Witherspoon and James Wilson, of
Scotland, and Francis Lewis of Wales;
and of the officers of the army, Lafay
ette, of France; Barons De Kalb and
Steuben, of Germany; Wm. R. Da
vis and Wm. Moultrie, of England
Wm. Crogan, John James, and Rich-
ard Montgomery, ot Ireland; Koscius
ko, of Poland; Charles Lee, ot Wales;
Arthur St. Clair, ol Scotland, all Ma
jor Generals in the American army.
Horatio Gates, ot .England; Count Pu
laski, of Poland; Hugh Mercer, of Scot
lacd, Brigadier Generals; and of the
Navy, we have Paul Jones, of Sect
land; John Barry, of Ireland; Albert
Gallatin was orn m Switzerland and
Alexander Hamilton in the West Indies.
Neither were they all of one religion.for
we Gad the name of Charles Carroll, of
Carrolton, signed to the Declaration of
Independence; and whit was he? I
will tell you: he was a Catholic; and
when he signed his name, he simply
wrote it "Charles Carroll;" the ques
tion being asked, who is Charles Car
roll? he added, of Carrolton, so there
should be no mistake what Charles
Carroll was meant. So we see that
this Union was not reared bv the hanrl
of Americans alone, but by the aid of
men of many nations, and of different
religious sentiments. Let us then be
a band of brothers, railing around our
libarues and our country; and here let
me py my respects to the recollectiois
of nw friend, Patrick Quinn, who lies
bcri&i in the Churchyard yonder; he
was a man or a good heart a native
of 'Inland and a Catholic he emigra
ted from New York, in the year 1839;
he was the founder of this Society ;
whea he came here he found none of
his people here, and this part of the
country almost a wilderness ; and what
do we see now? The forest made to
blossom like the rose, and his neoDle
not counted by tens or bv fifties, but bv
hundreds! He did not live to eniov
the fiuits of his labours, but his lady is
sun smong us; and long may she live
wun ner people to enjoy the land; and
may Kiev live in hanninoo. Imra fn tlio
end 6f time, and continue to be'a.tright
ornament ot this Republic, is the wish
of the! friend and humble servant.

Cpl. Medary : I nave only time" to
say Jhat the Fourth in Cleveland passed
otfiii a manner worthy of the day aud
oceMiou. For full particulars I shall
refe you to the city papers, with the
remkrk that never, in the history of
eland, was the 4 th of Jul; celebrat
n better style than on yesterday,
military encampment comfhenced
he Saturday previous, and from that
t'uni to the morning of the gloriout
eourth, military companies from ab
roal ind citizen strangers flocked into
.hecity by thousands aud tens of thou
sa nils. The procession was formed bv
Marshal Fitch at half past 10 A. M.',
and extended full one mile in length.
A!mong the distinguished stiangers in
thei procession, I noticed Gov. Medill
andnuite and. ex Qovernor Wood, seated
togtiher in in elegant, open carriage,
drawn by four beaulifull horses. Fol
lowing the Governor's carriage are those

nor was a novelty in the celebration,
and he was the observed of all observ
ers. He reviews the troops at the
Grand Encampment to morrow.
Large numbers of Canadians joined in
the celebration of yetefrldy. Two Can
adian Fire Companies iu full uniform
were in the procession. This is i decid
edly new feature :n the celebration of
iht 4 Hi of Julj. We Americans, celeb
rate our victories over the English, and
English subjects travel over sixty or
serenty miles to unite with us iu tbe
celebratian of there victories ! ! Good !

of its merits. The orator was Gen. Cro-

Newspapeh. -Judge Longstreet, whose
views on all subjects are sensible, prac
tical aud worth treasuring up, thus
sets forth the value ot a newspaper:
'Small is the sum that is required to
patronize a newspaper, and moot amply
remunerated is the patron, I care not
how humble and unpretending the paper
which he takes, it is next to impossible
to fill a sheet fifty-two limes a year
without putting into it something that
is worth the subscription price. Every
parent whose son is off from him at
school should be supplied with a paper,
I well remember what a difference there
was between those of my school-mates
who had, and those who had not access
to newspapers. Other things beinjt
equal, the first were always decidedly
superior to the las', in debate or com
position at least, The reason is plain:
they had command of more facts. Youths
will peruse a newspaper with delight
when they will read nothing else.'
A friend ol ouis tells a good story of
Henry Boswortb, of Fredoma, that will
bear repeating. At the Mansion Huuse,
in Buffalo, a few days since, Bosworth
found himself in company with quite a
number of gemlemen who were engaged
in discussing the Know Nothing move
ment, iu a rather warm aud animated
manner. Our Fredouia neighbor, who
is somewhat skeptical concerning tbe
promises of reform, held, out by trie so
called American party, at length en
quired of one of its most ardent advo
cates, who chanced to be silting near
him. ' "What positive good has been
accomplished by the Know Nothings
thus fart "It has," replied the individ
ual addressed, ,,puritied both the old
political parties." "That may be the
case,' responued Bosworth, "in fact,
I think you are perfectly justified in
making the assertion. Aad I'll tell you
of what 1 am now convinced," be con
tinued, while a merry twinkle passed
across his countenance, "if you could
uke'lhe tame number and the tame tort
of men from Ihll, it would purify thai
also !" A loud burst of laughter follo
wed this reply, and tbe discussion of
Know Noihirgism was abruptly term
inated. C'uH. Whif.'- '

A true American Meeting--Religious Toleration
and Political Brotherhood.
A few days after the Virginia electiou
mass meeting was held in St.' Mary's
county, Maryland, to congratulate the
country , on the lirmnets aud nobility
which the gallaut Democracy of Virgi
nia bad displayed. Tbe meeting com
menced by declaring first that much as
northern abolitionism was to be dread
ed, that "successful Know Nothingism
was still more alarming" the former
would divide our country, "the latter
would make our country not worth di
viding." Then the two portions of tbe
meeting the Protestant and the Catho
lic divided, and each separately pas
sed the following resolutions , to which
we call attention :
Resolved bv the Prole&tant portion
of thit assembly, That, knowing their
general worth as men, and patriotism
as citizens, to be in every respect equal
to our own, we do most Bolemnily
pledge ourselves to our Roman Catholic
brethren, whether Whigs or Democrats,
indignantly to frown upon and manfully
to contend against all and every nt
tempt to deprive them of the civil and
religious rights which are secured to all
by the constitution. . .
Resolved by the Roman Catholic por
tion of thit aetembly. That we do most
cordially reciprocate the kind aud brot
herly sentiments expressed in the resol
ution just passed by our Protestaut
brethren. Acknow ledgiug no higher
allegiance on this earth than that which
binds us to our beloved country, we
can, and we will, stand shoulder to

in resisting her foreign enemies, or iu
protecting .tbe constitutional rights ol
all her citizens from assaults of domes

He Would Peep.
Joe Dovetail had a wife, a strong
minded wife. She looked upon Joe ts
a sort of necessary evil, treating him
very much as the lady did her husband
on the North River steamboat, who
ventured to object to somearrangements
fur travel, when she shut bim up by
telling him. in the hearing of a dozen
passengers 'Why wl a, is it to youT If
I had known you were going to act
so, I wouldn't have brought you along.'
But Joe and Mrs. Dovetail never trav
eled. They were alwayt at borne, though
Joe was rarely seen there or elstwhtre.
She had long trained him to the habit
of retiring under the bed when company
called, and familiar as ha had become
wilh that retreat, it was a warning t
a militia training would hold him, tin
leis left under that bed: as being hit
last usual place of abode.' Duriug the
stay of Mrs. Joe's friends, he occasion
ally thrust out his head like a turtle.bat
one glancq of the loving eyes of bis
spouse would send him under with coll
shivers running up his back. One day,
ss she was. bobsnobbing over the fire
with a friend and a social class, Joe
thrust out his figurehead, and defied the
shakes tnd fro-vns of his wife, till,
growing valiant aud desperate, he sang
out : 'My dear, you may shake your
head just as much as you please, but I
tell you, as long as 1 have got toe spirit
of a man, I will peep ! .

The Crops.
We have devoted a large portion of
our col uiWiia to extracts frith reference
to the crops. We could not publish
anything just now of more general in
terest. - Tbe comnietcial prospects of
the country rest almost entirely en the
result of the harvest. This being the
case, it is extremely encouragiug to re
ceive from almost every quarter most
encouraging reports, VV'e have hid a
grea I deal of rain to much by far ; but
tbe condition of the crops notwithstan
ding is generally good. -Unless the rust
strikes the Wheat will yield full at
.veil as anticipated A gentleman from
ludiana informed us that, between Con
nersTi lie aud Cambridge City a yield of
thirty bushels to tbe acre will be real
ized. Along the Una of the Cincinnati
end Indianapolis Railroad, the firmer
have already commenced cutting, and
in another week or ten days new Wheat
will be in market; and In less than a
month lour "ill be telling below teven
dollar per barrel. In Tennessee and
southern Kentucky the Wheat has been
harvested, and. the yield it reported tq
be twice as large at in any former kel
son. We hear Complaints of the backward
ness of Corn, but tbe : prospects 'not
withstanding are very favorable for ta
unusually Urge yield. Oats and. Uay
continue to promise will. .,
"Aildison said,' 'Keep a stiff reio.'
Young America somewhat inelegantly
but more nervously commands 'Keep
a ttiffupper lip !'"' "
