Gettysburg, October 25, IS3I.
Of the Anti-Masonic convention, to the People
of the United States.
A large and growing political party,
through us, respectfully addresses you.— I
Numerous bodies of enlightened and honest
freemen, in states containing inure than half
the electors of our union, have openly and
fhirly delegated us to represent them, in the
.perligniance. of duties, which cannot flit to I
atlect your essential rights. And believing
that your rights are inseparably blended
with theirs, we seek, most earnestly, so to
perform these duties, as to produce • effects
equally and extensively beneficial upon the
rights of all. These duties.coneist in. nom
inating citizens to be supported, as candi
dates for the offices of President, and Vice
President, of the United,States, at the next
election, and in setting forth the grounds, on
which you are invited to sustain the nom-
The, concurrence of millions of men, in
any act of deliberation or decision, for .ob
jects, in which they have a common interest,
presents to the, mind a magnificent and ex-,
citing spectacle. If the men be intelligent,
pathetic, and free, and the object be that of
appointing the most suitable of their num
ber, to guard the rights, and advance the
prosperity, of the nation, which they con
stitute, human life can rarely exhibit a
spectacle of equal interest and sublimity.
Scarcely any approach toWai l ils such an
exhibition has ever been witnessed; in any
country; but,ours. . Let it be our ambition,
so to continue and improve the exhibition,
in all its stated recurrences, as shall more
• I • - commend - --it-to—t-he—appro• ;• •
and esteem
_of the great brotherhood of
communities, to which we 6elong, and most
effectually tend to the establishment and
support of free principles, in every commu
nity of our fellow men.
In selecting candidates for the' highest
offices, in the gift of the peopleOt is essen
tial to consider--the peculiar - frame and ob
jects of our government...---the perional quali
fications of the candidates—the principles,
which should govern their administration =
the sources of danger to these principles—
add the means of removing that danger.
On each of these considerations, we wish
to offer our opinions with that ingenuous
ness, fullness,. and earnestness . , which be
come freemen, in addressing their equals
and brethren, upon subjects involving their
dearest hopes, and most imperative duties.
Government has always been a business
of the highest importance. In every form,
it has exercised - a mighty influence upon
the individual and collective condition of its
subjects. In most countrieS, it has gener
ally been the prey of crafty and fortunate
violence; and Ivielded for partial and selfish.
objects. With such an origin and such an
object, it was impossible that it should net
be the parent of innumerable mischiefs.=
But bad as it has been, it hits not been with
out its advantages; and these. have greatly
outweighed its evils. Without government,
there could have been no extensive associa
tions among men. Their conflicting in
terests and
,passions; would have produced
universin collisionth, so, fierce and frequent,
as to have revented rtmeh increase; and
day, only in the condition of a few scattered,
ignorant, indigent, foe le, ferocious, and in
secure families. To raisc-them above this
condition, government was. absolutely in
dispensable. ~ ~............
he-gl3at use of government is to secure
rights—all the rights of those, who unite
in its formation. These are comprehended
in . life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
To the security of these, order is essential.
Order cannot be maintained without a coin
mon and definitive arbiter of the dill;.,rences,
that may arise between the 'individuals
composing a nation, and a power to protect
the whole against external aggression.—
..Such an arbiter and power is government;
which, to be perfect, should be just, intelli
gent, free from the bias of self interest, and
effective, as to all the objects for which it
is constituted. But such ' a .government
never existed. And so long as men are
ignOrarit; selfish, and passionate, never will
exist among them. The nearest possible
approximation to such at government is - a
A Republic acknowledges the rights of
all, and seeks to avail itself of the ,wisdom
and power Fall, to promote,their Common
welfare; Its theory is perfect: 'is fOund
ed upon the proper basis, pursues the propel
end, and employs the proper means. And
by the principles of elective representation
and accountability,`it may be so extended
as ultimately to combine ail nations--4not
'into one family—intoa friendly association
of several peacefill,prosperous, and numer,

and ' happiness of man; and if government

of substantial glory, than can otherwise re=
suit; from the labors, and sufferings, and
virtues or our race. It is a practical scheme
of universal benevolence, sure to be approy--
ed, embraced, and sustained, by all men, in
proportion to the just Eevalence, in their
minds, of intelligence, truth, and philan
thropy. Such a government is the one,
under which, it is our privilege to live.
Where it is the distinctive object
ernment to bring the public wisdom to the
direction of the public will, fur the public
good; an the people understand their rights,
their duties, and their interests, a design....
tion to fill the high places of its,administra
tion, by a majority of their free voices, is
the most precious reward;feaFthly - ori - qin;
which can be bestowed upon intellet
and moral merit; and imposes an accounta
bility exactly propoctioneJ to its value. No
step should be taken towards it:4 bestowment,
without a lively and genereus itude;
The qualities, which should be possessed,
by every President of the United States, are
the 'nest estimable, that can adorn a man.
He should be industrious. No great end of
human life tan be Atained. without great
effort. Every thing, which is good, in the
character and condition of luau, is progres
sive, and cannot be otherwise. Knowledge,
virtue, safety, happiness, are attainments,
not gifts, nor inheritances. They are the
slowly maturing, but precious fillits of ex
ertion; not the 412.pricious or unsought boun
tiel dearth, or heaven. Free government,
the most complicated and expansive good,
that can spring from human efilats, has not
been acquired, and Cannot be preserved,
without perpetual and strenuous exertion.—
The chief magistrate of this government
must, therefore, be willing and accustomed
to labor. Honest labor is always honora
ble. In the-President of the Uaitnd States,
it is most honorable, because, his labor is
rated to the nohlest_putpese
can be advanced by human means, and re
quires the employment of the highest 'quali
ties that can animate the soul.
He should be intelligent. The objects
and' provisions of our government, in all its
relations both foreign and domestic—the
sources of its power, and the means of its
support- 7 -the history of its origin, its estab
lishment; its trials, and its;fruits, are topics
of inquiry and meditation more pregnant
with valuable instruction, to the genuine
friends of mac, than all others, supplied by
civil records. They aro themes of enlight
ened examination, discussion, and admira
tion, every where. And the most respecta
ble nations of the world are now agonising
to disabuse themselves of their ancient, bur
thensome, and unequal institutions, for the
sake of following ( - kr example. To under
stand these topics, will•well repay the 'films,
it may cost, to every mind. It is'an essen
tial part of the education of every freeman.
In him, who is entrusted with the most res
ponsible application of all the knowledge
they intbld, to the holy purposes of rightful
order and social advancement, it is equally
the'dictate ofduty, self-respect, and honora
ble ambition, to understand them familiarly,
and in all their details. Such understand
ing can he'obtained, only by diligent study,
deep reflection, candid observation, wise in
tercourse, and practical experience.
He should be honest. His conduct.should
be a perfect exemplification of the solemn
claims of truth and right, in all his commu
nications and influences, and Of the strictest
fidelity to the prescribed duties of his office.
cordial, both in his official and private relit
(ions—the transcript of an. upright, pure
and benevolent mind, and suitable to aid in
the accomplishment of all his grave and ex
alted functions. '
The greatest crime, which can be 'Coin
pitted against freemen is the Usurpation ob
pdwcr. It sheuld be deemed the unpar
donable sin of Republics. It has been the
unfathomable deep in, which all the footsteps
of liberty, in other countries, have been
swallowed up, in all ancient and modern
times. To it, the higliest plate of delega
ted power afibrds both the most temptation.
and the most probable means of success.—
Whoever fills that . place should, therefore;
be strong in honeeiy. If be yields to the
temptation, and seeks to employ the means,
entrusted to him only for the benefit of his
fellow citizens, in endeavor to raise him-

for his elevation- to the noblest and widest
sphere of beneficient exertion, to which wig

would be necessary, that he should be a pa
