those of Our fellow citizens Who will be pre
sent, in advancing this great, and, as I be
lieve it, Heaven directed cause. That. "Lib

support," is a truth which has long been
known to the wise, and of which we are all
becoming convinced hy fearful experience.
It has been the ignorance of the people which
has so long enabled tyrants to - hold . the world
in chains; and they have never failed to burst
them asunder whenever light has broken in
strongly upon tlituu_But.if they are per.
mittod to - relapse kilo ignorance and its nat

rise again, under the name of patriots, and
we shall see the world re-plunged into Gothic
darkness and' - despotism. It is not in the
nature of things, that a popular-government
can long subsist, except among an enlighten
ed and virtuous people; nothing else can
shield `them against the designs wished
and intriguing politicians, who always come
in the name and garb of patriotism, and, call
ing themselves friends Of the cheat
'lawn 1 1
to enlighten the people, deserves the zealous
support--of-eve!, geiguitiv friend of liberty;
and I hail, with unaffected joy, the ardour
with which this great and philanthrolife. plan
has been every where received. Viewed in
a temporal and political light, merely, it de
serves the strongest support from all
wish the continuance of our free and happy
institutions at home; and when we see the
effect that our example is producing on the
world, the motive for our exertions rises to a
far loftier and nobler sentiment. It is the
cause, not of the United States only, but of
the whole earth. It is the cause of man
throughout the world; and who is there so
poor and sordid of spirit, as to think only of
himself; when the great question is, whether
this earth shall be inhabited by enlightened
And virtuous free men, erect and, firm on the basis of independence, or by hordes of igno

virtue, that which impels a, man, in all his
public acts, to look solely to the of his
country, without any view to public aggran

Revolution Vere, for the most part, such men.
A great crisis called them out, and the corn

supplied a great motive of action—which
heldthem together, and directed their efforts
to the liberation of their country. But that '
crisis once passed, and the object achieved

and then came personal ambition, with alfits
disastrous retinue of faction, intrigue, injus
