Ou the left sat the members of the dip lomatic corps, the heads of departments and others, in the rear the members and members elect of the House, and behind them those per sons who had occupied places in the galleries. When all had been settled, the President-elect arose and the Chief-Justice administered to him the oath ol office. The great crowd on the plat form rose and remained standing with uncov ered heads during this ceremony. As the Presi dent bowed his head and kissed the open Book the crowd cheered again and again. Turning from the Chief-Justice to the little rostrum that had been erected in front ot the stand. President Harrison began the delivery of his Inaugural Address. He said: THB 1SACGCRAL ADDRESS. There Is no constitutional or legislative re quirement that the President shall take the oath of offloe iu the presence of the people. Hut there is so manifest an appropriateness in the. public induction to office of the Chief Kxeruiive officer of the Nation that from the beginning of tho Government tho people to whose service the official oath consecrates the efiieer, huvo been called to witness the solemn ceremonial. The oath taken in the presence of the people becomes a mutual covenant: the ofllcer covenants to serve the whole body of the people by a faithful execution of the laws, so that they may be the unfailing defense and security of those who respect and observe them, and that neither wealth, station nor the power of cii"oi nation shall be able to evade their just penalties, or to wrest them from a be.netioent public purpose to serve the ends of cruelly or selfishness. My promise is spoken; yours unspoken, but not the less real and solemn. The people of every State have here their representatives. Surely I do not misin terpret the spirit of the occasion when I as sume that the whole bodyof the people covenant with me and with each other to-day to support and defend the Constitution and the Union of the States; to yield willing obedieneo to all the laws and each to every other citi zen his equal - civil and political rights. Entering thus solemnly into covenant with each other, we may reverently Invoke and confidently expect the favor and help of Almighty Ciod, that He will give to me wisdom, strength and fidelity, and to our peo ple a spirit of fraternity and a love of right eousness and peace. This occasion uonves peculiar interest from the fact, that the presidential term, which be gins this day, is tho twenty-sixth under our Constitution. The iirst inauguration of Presi dent Washington took plaeo in New York, where Congress was then siHing, on the thir tieth day of April, 1779. having been deferred by reasou of delays attending the organization ot the Congress and the canvass ot the electoral vote. a1 Vr:'.it")it H riUon. Our people have already worthily observed the centennials of the Declaration of Independ ence, of the Hattle of Yorktown and of the Adop tion of the Constitution ; and will shortly cele brate. In New York, the institution of the sec ond great department of our constitutional scheme of government. When the centennial of the institution of the judicial department, by the organization of the Supreme Court, shall have been suitably observed, as I trust it will be, our Nation will have fully entered it second century. I will not attempt to note tho marvelous and in great part happy contrasts between our country, as it steps ovst the threshold Into its second century of organized existence under the Constitution, and that weak but wisely-ordered young Nation that looked undaunted down the first century, when all its years stretched out before it. Our people will not fail at this t'me to recall the incidents which accompanied the institu tion of government under the Constitution, or find inspiration and guidance in the teachings and examolo of Washington and his great as sociates, and hope and courage tn the contras', which thirty-cght populous and prosperous States offer to the thirteen States, weak in every thing except courage and the love of utterly, that then fringed our Atlantic ea-board. The Territory of Dakota ha now a population greater than any of the original States, except Virginia, and greater than the aggregate of tlvo of the smaller Slates in 171U. The center of population, when our National capital was located, was east ot Bal timore : and it was argued by many well-informed persons that it would move eastward rather than westward. Yet, tn 1) it wan found to be near Cincinnati, and the uew cen sus, about to be taken, will show anotherstride to the Westward. That which was the body has come to bo only the rich fringe of the Na tion's robe. Hut our growth has not been limited to ter ritory, population and aggregate wealth, mar velous as it has been in each of these direc t ons. The masses of our people are better fed, clothed and housed than their fathers were. Tho facilities for popular education have been vastly enlarged and more generally dif fused. The virtues of courage and patriotism have given recent proof of their coutinued presence and increasing power in the hearts und over the lives of our people. The influ ences of religion have been multiplied and strengthened, 'i ne sweet onlces or charity have greatly increased. The virtue of temper ance is held in h'gher estimation. We have not attained an ideal condition. Not ail of our people are happy and prosperous: not all of them are virtuous and law-abiding: but on the whole, the opportunities offered to the indi vidual to secure the comforts of life are better than are found elsewhere, and largely bette than they were here one hundred years ago. The surrenderor a large measure of sover eignty to the lieneral Covommeut effected by the adoption of the Constitution, was not ac complished until the suimestious of reason were strongly reinforced bv the more impera tive voice of exoerience. The divergent inter ests of peoce speedily demanded a '-more per fect union." The merchant, the ship master and the manufacturer discovered and d sclosed to our statesmen and to the people that com mercial emancipation must )e added to the po litical freedom which had been so bravely won. The commercial tlicy of the mother coun try had not relaxed any of its hard nnd oppressive features. To hold in check tho development of our cotimeivlal marine, to prevent or retard the establishment aud trowth of manufactures in the States, and so to secure the American market for their shops, and the carrying trade for their ships, was the policy of Kuropean statesmen, and was pursued with the most selfish vigor. Petitions poured in upon Congress urging the Imposition of iliscriniinaliiiK duties that should encourage the production of needed things at home. Th-i patriotism of the peopic.which no longer found a flelj .f exercise in war, was energetically di rected to the duty of equipping the yi nng Republic for the ileien-e of Its independence by making its people self-dependent. Societies tor the promotion of home iiiaiiuiaii'u-es and for encouraging the u-e f domestic in the dress of the p-n. pie were organized in many ot the State. The reviva". al I tie end f the cent ury, of the same pal riotic (merest in the pres ervation and development of doniest.c indus tries, and the deferi-e ot our wuri;:cg people aga-nst injurious forc.fi competition, is an in cident worthy of atrrntion. It is not a de parture, but u return, that we have witnessed. 1 he protective policy had then it s opponents.

In 1876 Mr. Blaine was appointed United States Senator from Maine to fill a vacancy, and was subsequently elected for the term expiring la 1883. Tnia po sition he resigned in March, 1881, to accept the Secretaryship of State offered him by Mr. Gar field.

Soon after his arrival in that State he decided to mix politics with his law business, and very soon became a prominent figure in the Republican ranks. and in 1850 his party sent him to Congress. He served from 1859 to 1809, two terms, as chairman of the committee on Indian affairs. In 1870, he was appoiuted to the United States Senate to fill the unexpired term of Daniel S. Norton (deceased), and subsequently was rhosen for the term thatended in 1887. He was again elected for the term that closed in 1883, but resigned in 1881, to enter the Cabinet of President Garfield as Secretary of the Treas ury. Upon the accession of President Arthur, in the same year. Secretary Windom retired from the Cabinet. Upon his return to Minne sota the legislature of that State elected him te serve the remainder of his term in the Sen ate.

He took a con spicuous" part in the final cavalry campaign through Alabama and Georgia under uenerai Wilson. His regiment was attached to Wins- low's Brigade of Upton's , Division, and was led with great coolness and dash at all times, and especially in its dis mounted nlght attack ttpon : the fortifi cations covering Columbus, Ga., they ana their gallant companions of the Fourth Iowa and Tenth Missouri swept irresistibly over all obstacles, capturing over 3,000 prisoners, fifty- two guns, two gunboats, and an almost incal culable amount of stores, ammunition and cotton. Colonel Noble had already won his brevet of Brigadier-General and shown himself worthy of still higher promotion. Educated at Miami University and Yale College and trained as a lawyer, he was frequently called upon to per form provost marshal's duty and to write paroles, one of which, in behalf of the peripa tetic editor of what had come to be known as the Memphis-Jackson-Montgomery-Columbus Appeal, attracted great attention for its vigorous English and the comprehensive con ditions it contained. As a soldier Gen eral Noble was a fine, handsome, deep chested, sturdy-limbed dashing figure of splendid health, medium size and dis tinguished ability. At the end of the war he was recognized as one of that brilliant as semblage of cavalry officers who had done so much to end the struggle in the Central South ern States. , He was rapidly rising into promi nence and nothing but the termination of hos tilities prevented him from reaching high rank and important command.- As soon as he was mustered out he resumed the practice of the law at Keokuk, but shortly afterwards removed to St. Louis, where he rap idly acquired prominence, and in due time was appointed United States District-Attorney, in which office he rendered most important serv ice in the prosecution of the whisky ring. He has long been known as one of the strongest lawyers at the St. Louis bar, enjoying a high reputation for probity, learning and industry. Postmaster-General. John Wanamaker, of Pennsylvania, the new Postmaster-General, has had a singularly sue cessful career. He is now in his fifty-second year, having been born in Philadelphia, July 11, 1837. He was not Of the fortunate class to whom wealth comes by inheritance. He was. nevertheless, of the lucky few toward whom tne iiue oi loriune n-- TTrW-lY seems to flow contin-.L V VrL- w VtA uously and who pros- httX- per almost without of- John iVanamaker, fort. He was fashioned for a business career by that inexorable law of circumstances. His education was, therefore, not elaborate. He began work early and from his meager earnings managed always to save something each week, till at the age of twenty-three he had 1100 to his credit. A lucky investment in eal estate increased this amount to (2,000, thns en abling him to start a clothing store on his own account. He soon rose to be one of the leading clothiers in this country and afterwards gradu ally added the dry-goods line. His appearance in business was almost instantaneous with his advent into public life. He became identified with every popular movement, and when the Centennial Celebration Commission was creat ed his was one of the first names mentioned. He was also prominently identified with the movement for the correction of the abuses in the municipal government of Philadelphia Mr. Wanamaker is a man of very char itable instincts and dispenses his bounty with a free and unstinted hand. He has established several institutions for the benefit of the poor in Philadelphia. Although Mr. wanamaker nas always taken a com mendable interest in public affairs, ho has never held any office. He has been frequently solicited to permit the use of his name for Congress and mayor of Philadelphia, but has never been Induced to yield. In religious movements Mr. Wanamaker takes a lively interest. He is an active member of a Presby terian community. Besides the interest de rived irom his vast business, Mr; Wanamaker owns 3,0X),000 worth of real estate. Mr. Wanamaker is ot German stock on his fa ther's side, and a descendent of the Huguenots in his mother s line. Attorney-General.

Ia the eleventh century Palestine was the scene of unwonted animation; the Crusades were commencing, and in the spring: of 1096 six million persons were said to be in movement toward Palestine. Thia must, however, be a monstrous exaggeration. Crusade mad ness seized upon many who seemed little likely to fall victims to It, and rich and poor, young and old, feeble and strong, men and women, left their homes to wend their painful and sor rowful way to the Holy Land, to press the soil once trodden by their Saviour's feet, . and to rest their eyes on the scenes amid which He lived aud died. The most distant - islands and savage countries,"- says William of Malmesbury, "were inspired with the ardent passion. The Welshman left his hunting, the Scotchman his fellow ship with vermin, the Dane his drink ing party, and the Norwegian his raw fish." Pilgrimages to the Holy Land had been in great favor from an early time in the history of the Christian church, and it had always- been reckoned a peculiar mark of piety to leave home and journey to Jerusalem. The Crusades were only, pilgrimages better organized and on a larger scale. and instead of a few straggling thou sands comprised vast multitudes. Need I add that tho condition of the pilgrims was often deplorable, and many, after surviving the perils ' of sea and land, and when almost in sight of the Holy, Sepulchre, were cut off by robbers or died of wounds or diseases? At Jerusalem there were then living some Italian merchants of Amalfi, who daily witnessed scenes that wrung their hearts, and, with the consent of the Caliph of Egypt,- they built a hospital for the reception and relief of pilgrims. This nursing com munity was at first known as the Hos pitalier Brothers of St. John the Bap tist of Jerusalem, though some au thorities contend that it was original ly dedicated to St. John the Almoner. Before long, however, it was placed under the protection of St. John the Baptist, and it bears his name to this day. The nursing community threw itself into its work with impassioned zeal, knowing no weariness and recog nizing no distinction of race or creed the only passport to its help was to need it; and it has been in that Catholio spirit that the work has been ever 6ince carried on "for the glory of God and the good of man." The fame of the order rapidly spread rich gifts poured in upon it, many recruits joined its ranks, its power increased, and the good it did augmented. Gentleman's Magazine. The sun had already sunk in the west when the convict returned to his native village. During the many years of his confinement he had har bored but one idea that of l-evenge. As he neared the old school-house (which, by the way, he had made up his mind to fire) a bell from a distant spire began its slow and solemn peal. A feeling which the convict had not felt in many years Jilled his breast. He stood rooted to the spot, and tears, hot tears, moistened ' his ' cheeks. When the bell had ceased its tolling. he hastily wiped .his eyes with the back of his calloused ; hand, and ex claimed: "My heart is softened; I will not shed blood to-night I will rob instead!" Life. The death of Miss Lucinda Wash burn, a wealthy and aged lady of Sac ramento, Cal., recalls the fact that Miss Washburn was among the per sons selected by Troy Dye and hit ganglo murder. Troy Dye was publio administrator of Sacramento, and he thought he could kill certain rich men and women who had no relatives, ad minister upon their estates and pocket the proceeds. The gang started busi ness by murdering . an old farmer named Tullis, for which crime Troy and others were hanged. On the trial it was shown that the gang had a large number of rich spinsters and bachelors on its black list. . . At the funeral of the wife of a saloon-keeper in Brooklyn, recently, when the undertaker ordered that the cortege should start for the church, a stranger walked 'up and said: "Tais funeral can't go . on. .

Il Pertinent Question; "Shall Amer ica be Reserved for Americans?" This Land of Ours Broad Enough for the Bom or Kvery Race, and. If We Only Let God Preside, No Danger Need be Feared. . In a recent sermon at the Brootlyn Tab ernacle Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage took for his subject: "Shall the American Con tinent be Reserved for Americans." His text was : . And hath made of one blood a.'", r ations. Acts xvli., 26. " That i3, if for some reason general phla botomv were ordered and standing in a row were an American, an Englishman, a Scotchman anI an Irishman, a French man, a German, a Norwegian, an Ice- lantfer, a Spaniard, an Italian, a Russian and renresantatives of all other national ities bared their right arm and a lancet were struck into it. the blood let out would have the same characteristics, for it would be red. complex, fibrine," globulme. chlo rine, and containing sulphuric acid, potas ium, phosphate of magnesia and 6p .on, and Harvev. and Sir Astlev Cooper, and Richardson, and Zimmerman; and Brown Bequard, and ail the scientific doctors, allopathic, homoeopathic, hydropathic and eclectic, would atrree with Paul as, stana insron Mars Hill, his pulpit a ridge of limestone rock fifty feet high, and among - the : proudest and most ex elusive and undemocratic people of the earth, he crashed into all their prejudices by declaring in the words of my text that God had made "of one blood all nations." The countenance of the five races of the human family may bo different as a re salt of climate or education or. habits, and the Malav will have the projecting nrmer iaw and the Caucasian the oval face and small mouth, and the Ethiopian the retreating forehead and large lip, and the Mongolian the fiat face -of olive nue, and the American Indian tne copper colored complexion, but the blood is the same, and indicates that they all had on origin, and that Adam and Eve were their ancestor and ancestress. : I think God builV this American con tinent and organized this. United States Republic to demonstrate the stupendous idea of the text A man in Persia will al ways remain a Persia man -in Switzer land will always remain a. Swiss, a man in Austria will always remain an Aus trian, but all foreign nationalities coming to America were intended to ne Amer leans. This land is the -chemical labora tory where all foreign bloods are to be inextricably mixed up and race prejudices and race antipathies are to perish, and , this sermon is an axe by which I hope to kill them. It is not hard for me to preach such a sermon, because, although my ancestors came to this country about 250 vears aeo. some of them came from Wales and some from Scotland and some from Holland and some from other lands, and I am a mixture of so many natloaal ities that I feel at home with people from under every sky and have a right to call them blood relations. There are mad caps and patriotic lunatics in this country who are ever and anon crying ont, "Amer ica for Americans.'.' Down with the Ger mans ! Down with the Irish ! Dawn with Jews! Down with the Chinese! are in some directions the popular cries, all of which vociferations I would drown out by the full organ of my text, while I pull-out the stops and put my foot on the pedal that will open the loudest pipes, and run my fingers over all the four banks of ivory keys, playing the chant, "God nam maae of one blood all nations." There are not five men in this audience, nor five men in any audience to-dy in America, except it be on an Indian reser vation, who were not descended from foreigners if you go far enough back. The only native Americans are the Mo docs, the Shawnees, the Chippewas, the v Cherokees. the Chickasaws, the Semi- noles and such like. If the principle, America only for Americans, be carried out, then you and I have no right to be here, and we had better charter all the steamers and clippers and men-of-war and yachts and sloops and get out of this country as quick as possible. The pil grim fathers were all immigrants, the Huguenots all immigrants. The cradle of almost every one of our families was rocked on the bank of the Clyde, or the Rhine, or the Shannon, or the Seine, or the Tiber. Had the watchword "America for Americans" been an early and sue cessful cry, where now stand our cities 'would have stood wigwams, and canoes instead of steamers would have tracked the Hudson and the Connecticut; and in stead ot the Mississippi being the main artery of the continent, it would have been only a trough for deer and antelope and wild pigeons to drink out of. What makes the cry "America for Americans" the more absurd and the more inhuman is that some in this country who them selves arrived here in their boyhood or arrived here only one or two generations back are joining in the cry. Escaped from foreign despotism themselves, they say : "Shut the door of escape for others." Getting themselves on our shore in a life boat from the shipwreck, saying: "Haul the boat on the beach and let the rest of the passengers go to the bottom!" Men who have yet on them a Scotch or Ger manor English or Irish brogue crying out: "America for Americans I';. v hat if the native inhabitants of Heaven, I mean the angels, the cherubim, the sera phim born there, should stand in the gate and when they see us coming up at the last should say: " "Go back! Heaven for the Heavenians !" Of course we do well not to allow for eign nations to make this country a con vict colony. We would -have a wall bnilt as high as Heaven and as deep as hell against foreign thieve?, pickpockets and Anarchists. We would not let them wipe their feet on the mat of the outside door of Castle Garden. ff'England, or Russia, or Germany, or France, send here their desperadoes to get clear of them, we would have these desperadoes sent back in chains to' the places where they came from. We will not have America become tho flumping place for foreign vagabond ism.! But you build up a wall at the Nar row before Sew York harbor, or at the Golden Gate before Kan Fraa Cisco, and forbid the coming of the ia dustrions and hard-working and hon est population of other lands who want to breathe the air of our free institutions and get opportunity for better livelihood, and it is only a question of time when God will tumble that wall flat on our own heads with the red-hot thunderbolts of his om nipotent indignation. You are a father and you have five children. The parlor Li the best room in your house. Your son Philip aa7. to the other four children. "Now, John, you live in the small room in the end of the hall and stay there; George, you live in the garret and stay there; Mary, yon live in the cellar and s?tay there; Fannie, yon live in the kitchen and stay there. I, Philip, will take the parlor. It suits me exactly. I like the pictures on the wall. I like the lambrequins at the windows. 1 like the Axminster on the floor. Now, I, Fhilip, propose to oc cupy the parlor, and I command you to stay out. The parlor ouly for Fhilippians. You, the father, hear of this as rangement, and what will you do? You will get red In the face and say: 'John, come ont. of tht small room at the eutl of the hall: George, come tluwu out of the garret; Mary, come up from cellar; JCauuie, tomu nut uf the kitcheu, mul 40 lult It.

God is the Father of the human race. .He has at least five sons, a North American, a South American, a European, an Asiatic and an African. The North American sniffs the breeze and he says to his four brothers and sisters: "Let the South American stay in South Amer ica, let the European stay in Europe, let the Asiatic stay in Asia, let the African , stay in Africa; but America is for me. I think it is the parlor of the whole earth. I like the carpets of grass and Jts upholstery of the front window, namely, the American sunrise, and the upholstery of the back window, namely, the American sunset. Now I want you all to stay out and keep to your- places." I am sure the Father of the whole race would hear of it, and chastisement would come, and, whether by eartnquaue, or flood, or dronth, or Heaven-darkening swarms of locust and grasshopper or de stroying angel of pestilence, God would rebuke our selfishness as a nation and say to the four winds of Heaven: "This world is my house, and the North Amer ican is no more mv child than is the boutn American, and the European, and the Asiatic, and the African. And I bum this world for. all the children, and the parlor is theirs and .all is theirs." For, lot me say, whether "We will or not, the popula tion of other lands will come here. Ihere are harbors all the way from Baffin's bay to Galveston, and if you shut fifty gates there will be other gates unguarded. And if you forbid foreigners from coming on the steamers they will take sailing ves sels. And if you forbid them coming on sailing vessels they will come in boats. And if you will not let them come in boats they will come on rafts. And if you will not allow wharfage to the raft they will leave it outside Sandy Hook and swim for free America.' Stop themr You might as well pass a law forbidding a swarm of summer bees from lighting on the clover top.or pass a law forbidding the tides of the Atlantic to rise when the moon puts under it silver grappling hooks, or a law that the noonday sun should not irradiate the atmosphere. They have come. They are coming now. They will.- come. And if I had a voice loud enouah to be heard across the seas I would put it to the ut most tension and cry: "Let them come? You stingy, selfish, shriveled up, blasted souls who sit before your silver dinner- plate piled p with breat of roast turkey incarnadined with cranberry, your fork fall and yonr month full, and cramming down the superabundance till your diges tive organs are terrorized, let the millions of your fellow men have at least the wish ing bone. " But some of this cry, , America for Americans, may arise from an honest fear lest this land be overcrowded. Such per sons had better take the Northern Pacific or Union Pacific, or Atlantic and Char lotta air line, qr Texas and Santa Fe, and go a long journey and find out that no more than" a tenth part of this continent is fully cultivated. If a, man with one hundred acres of farm land should put all his cultivation on one acre he would be cultivating a larger ratio of his farm than our nation is now occupying of the national farm. Pour the whole human race, Europe, Asia, Africa, and all the islands of the sea, into America and there would be room to spare. All the Rocky Mountain barrennesses and all the other American deserts are to be fertil ized, and as Salt Lake City and much of Utah once yielded not a blade of grass. now by artificial irrigation have become gardens, so a large part of this continent that now is too poor to grow even a mul len stalk or a Canada thistle, will, through artificial irrigation.like an Illinois prairie wave with wheat.or like a Wisconsin farm rustle with corn tassels. Besides that, after perhaps a century or two more when this continent is quite well occu pied, the tides of immigration will turn the other way. Politics and govern mental affairs being corrected on the other f-ide of the waters; Ireland, under different regulations, turned into a garden, will invite back auother gen eration of Irishmen; and the wide wastes of Russia, brought from under dospotism will, with her own green fields, invite back another generation of Russians. And there will be hundreds of thousands of Americans every year settling on the other continents. Aud, after a number of centuries, all the earth full and crowded, what then? ' Well, at that time some night a panther meteor wandering through the heavens will put its paw on our world and stop it; aud, putting its panther tooth into the neck of its mount ain range, will hake it lifeless as the rat terrier a rat. So I have no more fear of America being overcrowded than that the porpoises in the Atlantic ocean will be come so numerous ts to stop shipping. It is through mighty addition of foreign population to our native population that I think God is going to fill this land with a race of people ninety-five per cent, su perior to any thing the world has ever seen. Intermarraigo of families and in termarriage of nations is depressing and crippling. Marriage outside of one's own nationality is a mighty gain. What makes the Scotch-Irish second to no pedigree for brain and stamina of character, so that blood goes right up to the Supreme Court bench and to the front rank in jurispru dence, and merchaudi.se and art? Be cause nothing under Heaven cau be more unlike than a Scotchman and an Irish man, and the descendants of tiese two conjoined nationalities, unless rum flings them,' go right to the tip top in every thing. All nationalities com ing to this land the opposite will all the while be affianced, and French and German will unite, and that will stop all the quarrel between them, and one child, they will call A teaco and the other Lor raine. And bot-blooded Spaniard will Unite with cool-blooded Polander and romantic Italian .with matter-of-fact Norwegian, and a hundred and fifty years from now the race occupying this land will be in stature, in purity of com plexion, in liquidity of eye, in graceful ness of poise, in dome-like brow, in brow, in .taste, in intelligence and in morals, so far ahead of any thing now known ou either side of the sea that this last quarter of the nineteenth rentury will seem to them like the Dark Ages. Oh, then, how they will legislate and bar gain and pray aud preach and govern 1 This is the land where by the mingling of races the rare prejudice is to get its death blow. : . How Heaven feels about it we may con clude from the fact that Christ, the Jew, and descended from a Jewena, neverthe less provided a religion for all races, and that Paul, though a Jew, became the chief apostle of the Gentiles, and that recently God has allowed to burst In splendor upon the attention of the world Hlrscb, the Jew, who, after giving ten million dollars to the Christian churches and hos pitals, has called a committee of nations and furnished them with forty million dollars for schools to elevate his race in France and Germany and Russia to higher intelligence, and abolish, as he says, the prejudices against their race, these fifty million dollars, not given in a last will aud testament. aud at a time when a man must leave his money auyhow, but by donation at fifty-five years of age and in good health, utterly eclipsing all benevolence since the world was created.

Aged near six thousand years. Departed this life for the perdition from whence it came. No peace to its ashes 1" 1 Now, in view of this subject, I have two point-blank words to utter, one suggest ing what foreigners ought to do for hs, aud the other what we ought to do for foreigners. First, to foreigners: Lay asido all apologetic air and realize you have as much right as any man who was not only himself born here, but his father and his grandfather and great-grandfather before him. Are you an Englishman? Though during the revolutionary war your father treated our fathers roughly, Kugland has more than atoned for that by giving to this country at least two denominations of Christians, the Church of England and the Methodist 'Church. Witness the magnificent liturgy of tho one and the Wesleyan hallelujahs of the oth er. And who shall ever pay England for what Shakespeare and John Milton ami Wadsworth and a thousand others have done for America? Are you a Scotchman? Thanks for John Knox's Presbytetianism ; the balance wheel of all other denomina tions. And how shall Americans ever pay your native land for what 1 nomas Chalmers and Mcintosh and Robert Burns and Christopher North and Robert McCheyne and Candlish and Guthrie have done for Americans? ' , t ; 4 Are you a Frenchman? We can not forget your Lafayette, who, in the mst desperate time of our American revolu tion, New Y'ork surrendered and our ar mies flying in retroat,espoused our cairne, and at .Brandy wine and . Monmouth, a:.i Yorktown put all America under eternal obligation. And we can not forget the coming to the rescue of 'onr' fathers Rochambeau and bis. French fleet with six thousand armed men. Are you a German? We have Hot forgotten ae eleven wound3 through which your Baron de Kalb poured out his life blood at the head of the Maryland and Delaware troops in the disastrous battle at Camden, nnd after we have named our streets and our cities and counties after him we hjtve not paid a tithe of what we owe Ger many for his valor and, self-sacrifice. And what about Martin Luther, tho giant German who made way for'rellgious lib erty for all lands and ages? Are you Polander? How can we forget your ' brill -iant Count Pulaski, whose bones were laid in Savannah river after a mortal wound gotten while in the stirrups of one of the fiercest cavahy charges of the American revolution? But with no time to particu larize, I say: "All hail to the men and women of other lands who come here with honest purpose!" Renounce all obliga tion to foreign despots. Take the oath of American allegiance. Get out your nat uralization papers. Jont talk against our institutions, for the fact that you came here .and. stay- shows that you like ours better than any. - othor. If you don't like them there are steamers going out of our ports almost every day, and the fare is cheap, and, lest you should be detained for parting civili ties, I bid you good-bye now. But if you like It here, then I charge you, at the ballot-box, in legislative hall, in churche and everywhere be out-and-oftt Ameri cans. Do not try to establish here tho loose foreign Sabbaths or transcendent alism spun into a religion of mush and moonshine, or foreign libertinism or that condensation of all thievery, scoundrel- ism, lust, murder and perdition, whi:h in Russia is, called Nihilism, and in France called Communism, and in America called Anarchism. Unite with us in mak ing by the grace ot God the fifteen million square miles of America on both sides the Isthmus of Panama the paradise of virtue and religion. My other word suggests what Arner icans ought to do for foreigners. By alt possible means explain to them our in stitutions. Coming here, the vast ma jority of them know about as much con cerning Republican or Democratic form of government as you in the United Ktjtijes know about politics in Denmark.or France, or Italy, or Switzerland, namely, nothing. Explain to them that liberty in this coun try means liberty to do right, but cot lib erty to do wrong. Never in their pres ence say any thing against their native land, for, no matter how much they may have been oppressed there, in tht native land there are sacred places, cabins ot mansions, around whose doors they playod, and perhaps somewhere there Is a gravo into which they would like, when life's toils are over, to be lot down, for it is mother's grave, and it would be like going again into the loving arras that firisl held them and against the bosom that first pillowed them. My! my! how low down a human must have. descended to have no regard for the place where his cradle was rocked. Don't modc their brogue or tfceir stumbling attempts at the bardent of alt languages to learn, namely, the English language. I warrant that they speak En glish as well as you could talk Hcaadina , vian. Rejoice as Christian patriots .that in stead of being an element of weakuMK the foreign people, thoroughly evan gelised, will be our mightiest 'lefense against all the world. The Congress of the United States recently ordered built new forts all up and down our American coasts, and a new navy is about to be pro jected. But let me say that :),0X),ni)0 expended in coast defense will not be so mighty as a vast foreign population liv ing in America. With hundred of thou sands of Oermans in New York. Oer many would as soon think- of bomb shelling Berlin as attacking um. Willi hundreds of thousands of French men in New York, France would a soon think of firing on Paris. With hun dreds of thousands of Englishmen in'NeW York, England would as soon think of de stroying London. The mightiest defense against European nations Is a wall of Europeans reaching up and d;wn the American Continent a wall Of heads and iiearts consecrated to free government, A bulwark of foreign humanity heaved up all along our shores, reinforced by. tho Atlantic Ocean armed as it is with tempests and Caribbean whirl winds and rlan billows ready to, fliag mountains from their ratnj.ault, we need as a nation fear no one in the unl verse but God, and if found in hi service wh need not fear him.
