The great end of the revolution was to secure
civil and religious liberty. Nor did our
ancestors misjudge its valuo in developing the
resources, physical, moral, and intellectual, of
Look fo iU civil results. Under republican
government, we have grown and prospered and

oceans oast and west. Nearly one half of the
North American continent bears upon its geuerouB
bosom teeming trillions of American citizens,
who make their own laws and worship'at
their chosen Bhrines. From 3,000,000 wo have
swelled toJJ5.000,000. From poverty and ignorance
an>l weakness, we have grown rich, intelligent,
sad strong. Our sails whiten every sea,
and our enterprise and energy penetrate into
every land. No longer docs the British lion
strike terror into the hearts of our women and
children. We at-e now here equal iu all the elements
of national greatness, and here superior
in every characteristic of personal liberty and
political iudepence. Groat Britain undertook
to manage our local affairs by assuming tbc
right to legislate for us while we were colonics.
The Parliament assumed that they wore better
judges of our wants nnd necessities than our
own colonial legislatures. They undertook to
regulate the domestic policy of their distant dependencies.
They ' imposed duties upon tea
without consulting us, and in every manner asserted
their right to govern us. Our fathers,
who had encountered the perils of the ocean,
and the greater perils of a savago wilderness,
who had fled from Europe to escape political
and leligious intolerance, could not long brook
such an unjust assumption. They petitioned,
importuned, remonstrated the British government
without avail; they took their rights in
| their own keeping, and, after a long and dotibf,
ful struggle, established a new fundamental article
id the science of government?the great
American doctrine of tne right of the people
to govern themselves. [Great chcering.J No
tenet in political science has more thoroughly
vindicated its wirdom than tbis, and when
brought into issue its orthodoxy has not been
questioned for seventy-eight years until a few
months past, it is said by some who have forgotten
or renottticed the teachings and principles
of tlieir father^ now, that the people of
nansas and Nebraska are incapable of goveruing
ti ernselvca, and that the Congress must assume
the tame guardia. chip over these distant
Territories ns the Parliament claimed over tlio
colonies. Where is the American fueling in the
bosom of any man, who, from fanatical zeal for
1 the African slave, whose condition he cannot
improve, is willing to renounce this great doctrine
of our father*? [Cheers.] Abolitionism
and (auaticism mistake the heart of this coun-.
try, in supposing that, when they cry out a
gainst slavery, it win cause the people to repu- j
aiate the principles upon which the government
is based. [Cheer*.] The country owes my

tfv^posed that its purposo is to supptunt the
Catholic religion, and to ostracise every person
who was not born upon American soil, and every
one whose father was notb< rn here. Now,
this is a different policy from the one our fathers
pursued; they invited here every foreigner
to our shores, und Patrick Henry was indignant
wheu it was proposed to exclude such as
turned tories even and fled tho countr}' during
the revolution. It i- assumed by this association

This may or mny not be bo. I Jo not profess to

Church. I was reared under the teachings of
the Shorter Catechism a:id the Westminster
Confciaion of Faith. There nre not fifty Cntho

foreigners in my congressional district, and
hence my perfect exemption from any peruonal

to counteract the priests. Tlie end, then,
is to justify the means; but two wrongs will
not make one right- The ''know nothings" do
the very thing which they complain of the
priests for doing. I do not pcrcoivo any difference

which fears to avow 'ita principles,
which shrinks from their discussion, and which
makes its members, by secret pledge, spies in

i Report of thc Prafttdent and Din..jri of
th0 QraonviUo Railroad Company.
' Colombia, July 10, 1864.
t Jb the Stockholder* of the Greenville avd Columbia
Railroad Company :
It U with sincere pleasure that we announce
. to you officially that our road it finished. On
. the 9th of December last the 6ars were ran
! over the road to Greenville, the upper termi
. uiu. omce mat time, witb the exception of a
few?days' interruption about the first of March
la^t, tlyj trains have boon run with great safety
" and Regularity over, the whole line of the road.
;v- The t-epdrts of tha/General Superintendent,
anil Auditor and Treasurer, herewith submitted,
will furuish ycmVtih'full and minute details
of the operutiona^through the'past year,
and financial condition and prospects of the
company. We will, however, call your attention
specially to some of the most important of
these matters, and invite the action of the stockholders
upon some subjects that seem to involve
thc_ permanent interest# of the comnnuv.
The expenditures of the yenr, now just closed,
have been lnrger than was expected at your
last meeting. Soon aft r we entered upon the
year it w. s dicovered that we did. not have
Iron enough to finish the road. Aa our necessities
would not admit of del.<y, consequent upon
an order and importation of iron from
abroad, we had to make a .purchase of American
iron at a small increase of price orer the
English article. The iron was procured as soon
as was practicable, and the work urged on to
completion. This purchase of iron amounted
to about seventy thousand dollars. *
In view of the important position which our
road is destined to occupy in connection with
other similar enterprises of our day, and the
high hopes nnd expectations of ita friends, your
recommendation upon this shfei&i .at the last
annual meeting hn& been adtijjJH^Tha officer*

of the road have mado a "close and skilful

with ftuy f.oad that can be named; and as
to safety, oune can surpass it; About fortylive

The financial condition of tno company it
not as good ns could be desired, but from the
prospect of busines*, (promising 4 handsome
income.) the ability and willingness of the stockholders
to sustain it, as heretofore manifested,
wc see nothing to cause despondency of doubt
