consequence of the multiplication of slop shops in

the mere offals of New York and Philadelphia slop

One of the inestimable rights enumerated in that et
pressive instrument, which declared our independence„
is the "pursuit of happiness." This is a right, of
course, which, both as nations and individuals, we all
desire to preserve inviolate, and the free exercise of
which no one would think of yielding for a moment,
without the most absolute and determined opposition.
Whatever may be the fact in regard to the inilirence ex
[ ercised over us by others, whether spiritually, morally
or politically, we at least cling in imagination to OUT
boasted privilege of self-government, and if, in practice,
we sometimes unintentionally of unconsciously yieldit
into other hands, we cherish the abstract principle with
a tenacity which very forcibly goes to show that it is
dear to every human heart.
Man, then, it is easy to perceive, in all ages and un
der all circumstances, is disposed to investigate the
Means of hiS own happiness, and to pursue the object
as a matter peculiarly belonging to hit - itself. Bat
whether he always does this with a wisdom and fore
sight commensurate with the importance of the object
before him, is another and a different subject of coasid ,
eration. It is one thing to wish forhappiness, bat St is
another thing to acquire its possession. We all profess
to be in its daily and constant pursuit, but alas! how few
of us :Amin to its enjoyment, and realize the dearest.
blessing as our own!
We have assembled this day, and in this place, fel
low-citizens, fur the ostensible object of concerting
means to promote our own happiness and enjoyment.
I do not mean that we have come here to unbend our
minds from the toils and anxieties of business, or to
luxuriate in the glowing beauties of field and forest, or
the picturesque attractions of the surroundinglanffscape.
lAt least, we have not come here for this purpose alone.
These beautiful trees under which we are now assem
bled—the rural sights around us, which are so delight.
cal to our senses—the pure air which we breathe--the
fountains and streams at which we quench our thirst.-..
the fields and woods through which we have been waft , .
ed to this pleasant retreat—are, in themselves, sources
of happiness—l may say, of pure and exquisite happib
ness. But it was not for the enjoyment of these alone,
that we left our,humes to-day, and sought a few hours
retirement in this secluded spot. You have had other
and even greater inducements to bring you together in
free association on the present occasion. Your object _
is, in some degree at least, a candid and familiar dis
cussion of the relation in which yon stand towards each
other;a consideration of some of the evils which *mad
seem to he inseparable from communities of men as ex%
isting under the present forms of society, and a sections
enquiry whether a probable and a rational remedy may
be expected to be found calculated to remove the evils
of which you think you have just reason to conaplafir.
I am well aware, however, that the mere avowal of
these objects must necessarily expose you to the den.
ger of incurring the sneers and ridicule of.your fellow
men. The character of the reformer, whose object is
to rouse the mural capabilities of man, is no more en
viable than that of the discoverer or inventor of some
improvement in the arts. Both have uniformly bees
stigmatized as the deluded victims of their own itria,g.
inations—as visionary enthusiasts, whose labors must
end either in folly or disaster—until repeated exertions
have at last crowned their labors w its success, and then ,
they have been acknowledged to be the guides and
benefactors of society. Nor do I know that we have' .
much right to find fault with the world on this account.
It is a very common thing for us to say that merit is sel
dom or never rewarded—that mankind are ungrateful,
and that the homage paid to genius and industry is re
luctantly withheld, until they are entombed in the sir
mansions of the dead, and their memory alone rem s
to excite our wonder and admiration—perhaps our
concern and sympathy. But let us not forget that all
men are more or less selfish—that there arc many ig
norant and upstart pretenders to modes ofreform which
are not only weak but vicious—which are not only vis
ionary but absolutely injurious—and that it. is armor
the evils of human nature to place tuo great reliance on
our own powers and faculties, and to make too large
estimate of our own importance to society. No won
der, therefore, that we should distrust each other, when
all of us are either conceited and presumptuoul, or
and positively evil.
But although the state of the world is bad, and the
state of our own hearts is bad, yet that is no reason
why we should despair of gaining a better, or why we
should relax in our efforts to secure a greater degree
of happiness to ourselves and to those around us. We
should ever remember that the progress uf light, and
of truth, and of good, and consequently of human hap
. piness, is onward, and although wo may have cause to
believe that during past ages of the world men receded
farther and farther from the original light with which
t h e , were bl e ssed by the Almighty Creator, arid steeped
themselves deeper and deeper in the . evils resulting from
pursuing melt a eunrsc—although they violated" more
and more the order of the Divine Pro. id,ence, and be•

—yet that Almi g hty Being who madeus has been con
stantly striving to draw us back to the same order in
iwhich we were created, and consequently to the same
happiness and enjoyment. Of this fact we may be
lassured both from reason and revelation, and from the
knowledge which we, have of His attributes who guy.
