The Wilmington MeaacnRcr hui nn able an.) interesting article on tlie elmr- act eristics of some of the great mime which have illustrated American ora tory. It is instructive for its nice dis crimination between the inborn orator and the cultured rhetorician, the native fire of the one and the brilliant polish of the other, the impetuous force with which the one impels his hearers, sweep ing them along in the torrent of bis own emotions, in defiance often of the rules of grammar and the proprieties ot lan guage; the other winning a deliberately' accorded admiration for Krace of man ner, elegance of speech, harmony of ar rangement and rotundity of htkmIs. The one arouses the passions und tin emotions of bis he.ircrs. animates thcii hearts and infuses into them the same ardor which burns within himself. Tin other delights the calm reflective intellect and pleases with the demonstration ol the height to which the human faculties may be elevated by assiduous cultiva tion. One is the spontaneous outburst of nature; the other is the triumph ol art. The Messenger illustrates the last by the example of Edward Everett, beyond question the most distinguished in bit day and generation in his successful cul tivation of what may lie called artificial eloquence. We quote what the Messen ger says to illustrate the characteristics of that distinguished rhetorician: As a speaker or reciter be was studied, dignified, full of engaging kculinritie andmarkcdlv artificial. His manner oi drawing his handkerchief from his breast pocket and using it; bis dignified yet graceful posturing; his studied gesticula tion; his sonorous, pleasing voice; his fine accent nnd distinct intonation ; his curious way of moving from place to pluce, not by a gradual, graceful, imper ceptible movement like Mr. Clay, or our own Willie I. Manguin, but like a danc ing master, bv putting toe to toe and then heel to heel and thus fixing all eyes upon his feet, were quite sure to nrresi the attention of all observers. He dill not curry you pell mell by a mighty rush of eloquence nnd so engage your atten tion that you could not attend to his studied manner, hear bis artistic delivery and behold its accompaniments. Yoti were entirely cool nnd sell'-possesscd, and were able to study the Rhetor, his art. his excellencies, his delects. Hence, when you heard peculiar pronunciation of " word very unlike that of the well edu cated Southron, like Mr. Hadger, for in stance you were arrested at once, nnd perhnps'vou marvelled that so fine n scholar, so admirable a Grecian, so splen did a rhetorician as Mr. Everett unques tionably was, should so pronounce. The Messenger paints its picture from the scene iu which Mr. Everett was ehiel nctor in the delivery of bis famous ora tion on the character of Washington, de livered throughout the country for the benefit of the Mount Vernon Association, and in due course of time, nt Raleigh, in this State. We were present, nnd recog nize the accuracy nnd justice of Mr. Kingsbury's conclusions. We recall tin contrast lictween the warm impassioned, unstudied, yet elegant and eloquent in troduction of the orator of the occasion by Mr. Bndger, with the studied manner. the elaborate polish, the finfshed work ol the distinguished literary nrtist. It was the contrast between art and nature. Both were men of giant intellect, of vnst learning, of elewnnt culture, of absolute dominion over all the resources of lan guage and illustration. One submitted himself solely to the guidance of the brain ; the other permitted the heart to share largely in the province of the in tellect. We wonder that Mr. Kingsbury hnd not brought into contrast with Mr. Ev erett an orator of our own State who took the same subject in aid of the same object. Henry W. Miller, of Rnleigh, was the equal of Mr. Everett in intellect. Ik was inferior to him in literary culture, and was unable to abstract from the pursuit of his profession the time to adorn his work with the exquisite polish which so charmed nil those who heard or rend after Mr. Everett. But Mr. Miller was highly educated and his tnstes were literary. But fnr beyond Mr. Everett, he wns nn orator, n born one, fnr his gifts were nn inheritance from Patrick Henry, whom he resembled in erson, not far below him in natural gifts, and infinitely superior to him in acquire ment. In him, more than any man we have ever heard speak, were combined native fire with the Irssons ol training, the impetuosity of temperament judi ciously modified by taste and judgment. To hear Henry W. Miller speak was to hear the real orator iu whom were blended all the splendors of native fire and nil the beauties of cultivated art, but the first always so predominant that the hearer surrendered himself to the pell, and never stopped to dwell upon a word, to measure a sentence, to balance a period, or criticise the effect. Whnt could be done calmly, deliberately and tnjoyubly with Mr. Everett, wns impos sible with Henry W. Miller. When he spoke, be was master of judgment as well as of emotion. Like Mr. Everett's speech, Mr. Miller's was never, during the course of hi deliv ery in different placet, given to the press. Mr. Miller's field wns also a smaller one. But we do not doubt, if he hnd given himself to the work as Mr. Everett did, he would have made, nt least in relation to the subject both bad chosen, a deeper and more lasting national fame than did his illustrious co-worker for the same noble object. In approving the policy of Secretary Tracy to build up n navy commensurate with the interests of a people so numer ous nnd so mighty ns those of the I'nitcd States, we by no means endorse any sug gestion of ii rivalry with the navies of the great European powers. Such rivalry would mean n desire for war as well ns readiness lor it. Our policy is pence, ab stinence complete from tiny Euroicnn complication, and the quiet perfection of our own destiny on this side of the wa ter. But possibly we may not lie per mitted to do this. The intrusion of n for eign policy upon territories ndjaccnt to us may interfere not alone with the tra ditional regard to the Monroe doctrine, hut with the tree exercise of rights insep arable from our integrity ns a nation. How could we exist with the German hand laid upon the Island of Cuba, ready to grasp every ship going from the mouth of the Mississippi and ports on the Gull through the Florida straits, or returning on their inward voyage ? How could we suffer any foreign power to entrench it self upon either of the isthmuses ot Cen tral American, and obstruct our tree con nection with our Pacific territories ? Yet this is the danger that constantly con front u : literally, as the world now moves, we know nut what a day or an hour may bring fort i; we are practically helpless; we may bark; we cannot bite. The object of the creation ol u navy is not to become a naval power of the rank ol Great Britain. No such necessity lies upon us. She would shrink up nt unci into insular insignificance if her navy were not always nt the very highest standard in nmnlicr and power of ships. She is confronted by watchful, jealous, powerful enemies, nt home and abroad, iu the remotest sen and the most distant hemispheres. She is lost il she relaxes lor :t moment; she is vulnerable at a thous and points. Such i not our case; there fore our navy, while il must lie good, need not be great except iu quality. The same sums thai Scour Robinson, Chandler i ml Thompson sient in their successive idiniuislralions to make the navy weak i ml contemptible, would create.exK'iiilcil lvera period ol fourteen years, a navy consisting ol il.' vessels, wlncll wouiu nc .unple for dclii.sivc purposes, and furinid- ible enough for offensive action, il such should become necessary. We do not, with our views of the sub ject, indorse nil the Springfield Republican says; nor do we Ii.im.-c as it dues, the irosiect ol that universal disarmament mil general peace, the true wisdom of na tions, not yet acquired. That paier says: We must contemplate this planning fur .1 navy lor the I'nitcd Stales that shall rival the liulitiiiu fleets o! the war powers uf the old world as entirely out of har mony wilh the spirit ol our institutions, or territorial position or international relations. iimhis unnecessary for n proper iHilicv of ik-fciise. Il would Ik- takiui: n step backward iu the progress of the na tions. A ciiill-oi-iiin.il win nut hviik the great republic nt thisday. European IKiwers on the surface may Ik- talking tip their huge armaments nnd advocating greater, but everybody knows that nil dcrncnlh the surface is' lomenliug n social revolution which will not lung hence ct leet a disarmament, either directly or in directly. SH-akcr Reed has assumed n role arbi trary nnd dangerous, because together wilh strong power of will he unites un doubted intellectual ability, and a thor ough conception of the importance of his IHisition. That position he is resolved to use for the sole Ixnclil of his party, which iu his eye is the country. There wns an inclination to give him credit, when he was elevated to a post so so high and responsible, that his vision would explain! and ihnt he would look lievond iiariv lines. On the contrary, his views if they have not bccomccontractcd are certainly not enlarged. There is not nn evidence of the fairness, the justice the liberality appropriate to one, who, clcrntcd by party partiality, is presumed to recognize the existence of a powerful minority, equal iu capacity in gravity of interests, il not in numbers, to that which he now assumes exclusively to represent. It hits not often occurred iu parliamentary history that u speaker constitutes himself a tyrant over the minority, the arrogant mouthpiece of the will or interests of the majority. It is iiossihic that Mr. Reed oversteps the line that the moderation, or even the sufcty that majority might define; for it might occur to that majority, that while itscll lieing made victims of arbi trary rule, there is always the uncer tainty of fluctuation in popular ma jorities. Abuse of powers is always sure to be followed by reaction. The repub lican party itself is illustration of that fact, (jetting back into power by means more than questionable, it would vainly expect to pcrtuute itself In power by another system of wrongs. The w hole American ieople will view with jealousy the attempt of nny party, by wrongful menus, to cement its hold with n view of securing impregnable position. The house is at present without rules, In the framing ol n code of rules, the democratic minority has not been allow ed a voice. The rules prepared by the majority, reflecting the ideas of Mr. Reed, are so palpably unfair, that the com mittee hesitates to submit its report. In the mean time, the house dcicnl on the general rules goveniingnll parliamentary bodies, nnd these the spenker construes according to his own views n to what is best for his party. It is understood thut Mr. Crisp, of Georgia, acting on behalf of the demo crats, will call for the report of the com mittee on rules, anil will appose the transaction of any business until the re port is made. We know the power of obstructive tactics, not always com mendable, but in this case indisicnsnblc to prevent a tyranny which would hand over the democratic party, bound hand and foot to the majority, thus opening the way to all party measure which menace the rights and liberties of the whole country, cmplinticnlly those of the South.
