any apology, then, is needed for our early
p irticipation in political contests, it is to
be found in the greZprinciP;es, which are
now at issue, and the deep stake wb have
as individuals in their decision.
We are gathered together in this , ancient
° like the Oreeke at the Olympic
games. We have come up from all parts
of a widely extended commonwealth, like
them, to strengthen our devotion to a com

We meet with the same object- the de

with the unity of feeling and sympathy that
belongs to men engtged in a solemn and
important undertaking. .13light shades of
political difference are obliterated, and all
personal and party feelings are merged in
the zeal that possesses us in behalf of tour -

perilous and tremendinis crisis has arri

periled, anarchy and social confusion threa

such a crisis; is a coward, end he who fal

and his duty to the. country, is a traitor,
and dims not deserve - M live under our free
form of government.
When I . bank abroad . over our state, I
am surprised at the 'extent of her natural
resources and power. fetins)lvania stret
_over an extent of territory, large
enough fm. half a dozen Italian kingdoms,
and almost as capacious as the island of
Great Britain lidelt. We are placed in
the gap between the northern and southern
sections of the Dania, and are the great
avenue of transit between these important
divisions. Within our borders, beyond
the mountains, rise the sources of the' nvtir
which opens a ebonite' cf eirminimication
for us to the most distant „regions of the
civilized and unsettled west. The Dela
ware, which sweeps its broad current by
the city to which I livei expands into au
arm of "the ae.i, and,gives us a wide portal
to the Atlantic, over which our produc
tions are carried to s.II the kingdoms of the
old world. OM. sod yields bounteously to,
the husbandman, while mines of inexhaus
tible_ minetiul wealth ate boned every

mountains, whim
_summits are bathed no
an, ationspiiere of cloud, are oluthed, from

with shafts of coal winch run into the very

When I "reflect, that in addition to these'

as to prevent individual enterprise fr.,rn
being crushed by the.irresistible rivalsbig,
of large monoplies. The character and
institutions of the state have been upheld
against the dictation and abuse of the Fe
deral Executive 'and his organ. During
the tidnrinistration of George Wolf. Penn.
riylvania was a servile vassal in The train
of a foreign and arbitrary power. No line
'of poliEy could' be pursued, or no measure
sanctioned, which was not first approved
by the cabinet at Washington. Theinde
pendenie of our State Executive was but
a mockery, and Pennsylvania, instead of
being governed at Harrisburg. was, in re
ality, ruled by-ilie,powerst# Washington.
We were mortified witnesses of the pliancy
of a Pennsylvania Governor, in decla , ing

foreign inStructions; consenting to be the

But, Mr. President, the great triumph
of Mr. Ritner's administration, and, I may
sav,,the noblest benefaction that has ever
been conferred upon Pennsylvania, is the
successful establishment of a system of
Com non Schools throughout the state. 1.
give his predecessor credit for his effitris
iii . this philanthropic cause, but i claim for
Mr. Rioter the merit of completing and
perfecting, that which was but in its in
fancy when tie s tank it to. his 'Charge.
Whorl he commenced his administration,
'he found the aui t ieet of
. Conamou School'
Education, strange to say, very unpopular.
In one district, nis pp Hutu s had achieved
an. overwhelming majority under the bat.
tle.cry of " No Cotuuron Schools," and,
indeed., throughout the state the popular
teeling was strongly adverse to the ass
tern; but, sir. Mr. Ritner, ail a legislator
and Citizen, was oppressed with the all.
absorbing importance of Education in a
free state. He knew that long continued
ignorance must debase the
. .publat "mind,
and that it must generate licentiousness,
which, sooner or later, would .usuip the
dominion of law and order, and deliver us
up to a wild and fearful anarchy. Moval
•bi those philanthropic impulses, he com
mitted hinisell . to the!udvocacy of comm.
=noel education, and with a vigorous in
dependence, regardless of optional conse
quences, he determined to stand or fill in
nts elf .rts to change the popular mind in
favor of tte.a . giitem.k He persevered, un
daunted with repeated and .disheartening
repulse,!, until he hraught . the.whole cum
tnot(wealth to his aid, and'. succeeded in
L securely establishing
. .the system. fon
ierity will bless the name of the man, to
the latest generation, who gave them an
educated ancestry, and. handed. down to
them the lass and liberties of Penniylva•
nia, fortified and illustrated by a race of
educated and eultgbtenedintai. I bold up
Mr. Ritner, sir, not only as a benefactor
of Pennsylvania, buts* an honored advo
