in the McArthur papers.
Gentlemen of the McArthur Litera

And iirst let me remark, that the ob

bers of this society are. in my bumble
judgment, not oniy ja&aatue but praise-
wortny. in iaci, noimng but a knowl
edge of the character and high moral
standing of the gentlemen who com
pose this society is necessary In order
lo convince any one that their object
is pure and legitimate. In all places
wnere similar societies nave been lorm.
ed and properly conducted, the best of
results have been proffuced. Not only
have those of mature age been both
interested and instructed, but Darticu-
lanr nave we young men been prepar

wen semea iact, tuat there is no single
branch of Iparnini! that mav not he

tance drawn from some of the oihert.
Hepce it is, that in literary associations
of men ot different literary, scientific.
and professional pursuits, more erner-
al iniormation i? obtained, and more
good accomplished tha could result
accomplished by putting forth our
eJS'" m the disc.U8!)a ot subjects
portgnce ,0 our jnterests. v.r
from an association ol persons, com
posing -either class or separate branch.
Shoukl my premises in this particular
be correct, 1 think we may safely make
the 'deduction, and calculate -cm xhe
success of our undertaking.
Tlte very object and purpose of this
a 1st 1 a
society siiouia De (ana l have no
doubt is 60 understood by all) the im
provement of the mind and useful fac
ulties ol eacli individual member; and
to effect this grand design, the first ob-
Meet should be to stimulate the mind,
and cause it to search for general iu

This attained, the next grand object
should be to train the mind not only to

precision to separate argument froa
fallacy by the clearest and mosty simple
rules of logicand lo pursue truth even
through the most intricate deductions.
- I am aware that prejudice txists in
the minds of some persons against ly
ceums or debating societies, and the
opinion is honestly entertained by many
that little or no good results to the mem
bers or society generally therelrom.
1 think, however, that all will agree
with me in the opinion, (hat good 6r
evil results, flowing from an associa
(ion ot individuals, depend entirely up
on the character of its members, the
object or purpose ot the association,
and the manner iu which it is conduc
ted. I can easily conceive how the very
object and purpose of not only this,
but all other societies of a similar char
acter, could be perverted and rendered
worse than useless to its members; and
one of the most fruitful tauses calcula
ted to produce that result, is the wide
range which is too frequently given in
the selection of subjects lor discussion.
Whenever the energies of the mind are
let loose to wander through the wide
range ot general literature, taste, poli
tics, and the thousand and one wild
theories which are entertained by some,
there is great danger that those subjects
will claim too much oi our attention,
and be listened to with too much of an
approving ear, or at least, that the
mind will become in some degree dis
tracted and its best powers weakened
.by the multiplicity of demands upon

attention be given to this eubiect
poyuiose w wiiom is entrusted, irom
jtime to time, the duty of selecting sub-
for disrussior,; believing, as I do,
that hundreds and thousands ot persons
who are now classed wita the Deist,
Atheist, Sceptic, and those who advo
cate the various wild and visionary
theories, equally ridiculous and absurd
as that of Atheism, are themselves the
authors of their own conviction. I
cannot but believe it to be proper and
right for any member of this society
to refuse to invent arguments lo prove
position or principle to oe true wiucli
his judgment and honest convictions
teaches him is false, or disprove that
which be believes to be true. The in
dividual, however, claiming to be ex
cused from the position assigned him,
should first be satisfied that the question
at issue involved the discussion of a
moral principle, and that his own argu
ment might have an injurious effect up
on his own judgment, or that of others,
I desire to call the special attention
of the young men who now are, and
who may become members of this so
ciety, to the fact, that it is their privi.
lege and duty lo derive a doubU ad
vantage from the lessons of instructions
which may be here imparted, oter those
who have passed the meridian of life.
In fact, the leading desire of all the
good aud wise men of the age is, to
educate the youth ot our land, and to
prepare the young and rising genera-
tian tor usefulness iu society, and to
discbarge with ability the important
trusts which will soon be confided to
their keeping. And whether they are
cauea upon to nil a station in the coun
cils of our aation, in our legislative
halls, at the bar, in the pulpit, or to
move ia tae circles ot private lite, I
apprehend that it they improve the on-
portunities here offered for obtaining
mierruauon, tuey win in alter lite be
able, with great satisfaction, to advert
to the Hall of the McArthur Literary
Society as the place where the powers
ot their minds were first exercised in
the elucidation of important truths, and
an attempt to impress upon the minds
of others, by oral argument, opinions
wnicn iney entertained.
I know by sad experience, as well
as by observation, that all men, to a
greater or lest degree, possess a natu
ral timidity and feel embarrassed in
their first attempts at public speaking.
some oi me nesi orators and greatest
statesmen, loth ancient and modern,
came near being entirely overcome by
this feeling, and nothing but firm reso
lution and extraordinary exertion on
their part enabled them to succeed.
1 know of no place better calculated
than a society like this for younor men
frt m-primmr the Hi fTipnliioa ini.ion in
(heir natures, aud of yliicli 1 have!
great acholar, who will
not bear testimony to, and afford an ex
and amule of. the truth of this assertion.
Nothing is more natural for mankind
than lo consult their own ease and com
Ijects fort. Very lew, compared with the
been speaking. No young man, save
and except a self-conceited coxcomb,
ever felt luily satisfied with his first ef
fort at public speaking, nor far years
was enabled to entirely overcome this
man-tearing spirit," particularly,
when he Icltthat he was iu the pres
ence 4 Lis superiors.
The wry word Educate, when we
look into its primary meaning or sig
MficBlion, implies more thau a simple
knowledge of letters, or even ef sci
ence. The word edueo, which is the
root from which the wewd educate is
derived, signifies expansion ratlraw-
ing out. Any and every association,
therefore, calculated in its c&ture to
tkaw out and bring to view any f those
rich and innate principles which the
Creator has conferred upon man as the
seal ef his pre-eminence, and s a
means by which he may adorn his
species, may well be termed an institu
tion of learning, and should receive
encouragement from every philanthro
1 lie mind ofian is frequently and
very appropriAtely compared to marble
n tne quarry, which shows none of
its inherent beauties until the skill of
the sculptor discovers .its variegated
colors and gives to it symmetry and
form. A perfect educatiou in the same
manner brings to view every latent vir
tue and perfection that adorns the hu
man mi no, and enables man to see and
feel his superiority over the brute crea
lion, and to think and act as a creaturj
destined tor immortality. And not
withstanding the wonderlul effect of
education, in removing from our minds
tue rubbub ot superstition and the
cloud of ignorance, vast multitudes of
persons in whose minds the Creator
implanted the germ of giant intellects,
have lived anci died in obscurity, and
without any, or at least very imperfect,
ideas of the object of their creation.
And even in the present day, and in
our favored land where every induce
ment is offered to the people to prepare
themselves tor usefulness and a partic
ipation in the affairs of our Govern
ment, the idea is quite too prevalent
that eminence is rather the result of
accident, and that every one must or
should be content to remain just what
they may happen to be. Hence it is
that the halls of legislation, the legal
and medical professions, and even the
sacred desk, are too frequently dis
graced by men who do not understand
the first or elementary principles ol our
Government, nor ot the profession or
ii -i. i i ft
caning uiey nave espoused, many
are the excuses offered by some who
are unqualilied to discharge properly
the duties ot the office or trust contided
to them; (ew, however, are willing to
admit that their ignorance may be at
tributed to indolence or a want of in
dustry and application on their part.
industry and intense application, are
indispensably necessary to tlie accom
plisbment of au education, as well as
all good and great undertakings. And
there does not now live a single orator,
great number wild might be termed
idle loafers, are willing to tax their
minds wita the pursuit of knowledge.
They have very few, if any, ideas
which are their own, and they are con
tent to pin their faith to the sleeps of
others; and be lore you can reasonably
expect such persons to improve the op
portunities which are afforded them for
the improvement of tneir minds, and
to apply themselves with proper indus
try, you must piace mem 10 a position
in which they will ieel that there is
not only a pressing, but an absolute
and present necessity for industry and
intense application. And allow me,
gentlemen, at this point, to premise that
this society is admirably calculated iu
its very nature, to accomplish this de
sirable object.
If the members of this society will
exercise their influence in its behalf, a
majority ot our citizens, and particu
larly the young men, caa be induced
become members, and participate in
our exercises.
This accomplished, we have noth
ing to do but to assign to each his po
sition and work, agreeable to the regu-
taiions oi our constitution and bylaws.
And I am clear in the opinion, that
when we are thus fairly organized,
each individual member will feel that
he is under a present and a pressing
necessity to search for truth, and lo
hunt up and invent argument, in sup
port of the position assigned him, or
which he intends voluntarily to advo
cate. Owing to what I conceive to be a
radical defect in our system of educa
tion, or rather the fault may be attribu
ted to those to whom hat been entrust'
the management and control of our
common schools, an astonishing num
ber of persons who have arrived to the
years of maturity, and many ia- fact,
who are, and for years have been, ex
ercising the elective franchise, are
found to be deplorably ignorant of the
nature of the Government under which
they live, and entirely unacquainted
with our Constitution or the organic
law oflhaland, either State or Nation.
which ate the safe-guards and pro
tection of their liberties.
Believing as I do, that every one,
without distinction of sex, should know
something about their Constitutional
rights and their duties as citizens. 1
conceive it to be my duty again to re
fer briefly to the subject ot selecting
questions for discussion, and to recom
mend the frequent selection and discus
sion of such as will necessarily lead
the debator thoroughly to investigate
fundamental principles ot our Gqv-
ernment, the principles of our Consti
tution, and the rights, privileges; and
duties ot individuals, Stales and Na
tions, Having already extended my remarks
beyond the bounds at first contempla
ted, I feel that (he time of the society
would be much more profitably em
ployed by the discussioa of the subject
selected for the present evening; and
I shall conclude by recommending the
purchase ot a small and well selected
library, to be under the control ef the
society, yet tree to the use of all our
citizens who may be induced to con
tribute to its purchase, and by attempt
ing to impress upon each and every
member the duty which he owes to
himself aud to the society, in the ex
ercise of an influence in its behalf, and
in being punctual and prompt in his
attendance. Let it not be said that the
people ot McArthur and vicinity have
neither the capacity nor taste to partici
pate in a l'terary society, and that we
have tailed in our endeavors to do gdod.
Let us all, both young and old, be de
termined to give character to our insti
tution and render i; useful to all. And,
lastly, let me advhe that the ladies of
McArthur be admitted le seats as the or
naments of our HalL
