pillitiettention of the American Congress. It
consequently became the theme of protracted, ar
dent and ablediscussionamong flick...nest power
ful debaters ih that body ; for the iniShment had
opponents as well an advOcates. The eloquent
RICIIAIID LEE; of'Virginia, exerted the
noble:it powers of his oratory-in- support of the
deelarationoleelaring in the close of nu elOquent

This speed* was received with evident:signs_
-; ---- c - T — ifyrObation by the assembly. But the demi
' ties ; fiem Pennsylvania and Maryland not 'being
-. "present, and Congress desiroa by some delay to '
evince the maturity of its deliberations, adjourn-
MI the further consideration of the subject to 1112
first of July. ...On thia question a difference of A
pinion existed between the people of the'colonies
of Pennsylvania and Maryland, and the other
colonies. 'These two colonies, acting under a
mistaken view of the subject and believing that
. the prosperity of the States depended upon their
continuing in allegiance to the mown of England,
oppOsed the,movnient in favor of , r , r , . Declaration of
-Independence. ~Iridlust not be supposed, howev
er, that the whole people of Pennsylvania coinch.•
dad in this view of the subject. In the Legisla
ture of Pcrinsylvania, the party opposed to a dec
laration carried the 'measure of instrnctiOn to
ther menthers in Congress by.a very small major.
• • ity; and the declaration was afterwards signed by
nine Pennsylvania members. .
On the first of July, the subject el the declara
tion was again taken up. Jourt Dm:laser:4 ono
of the members from Pennsylvania, acting under
the instructions'of his Staid, made an able reply
• to the . speech of Mr. Lsk. The speech of Mr.
Ptmaksots was lengthy ; among other arguments,
which time has proved to - be erroneous, he said,
t' it was an established filet that America could
bo .well and happily governed by the English
• laws, under the sauna King and the same parlia
ment: Two hundred years of happiness furnish
the' proof of it; it :is not as independent, but as
subjects ; not as republic, but as monarchy ; that
we have arrived at our present degree of power
and greatness:" Again, said the speaker, tt the
• English Constitution is one irywhich 'monarchy
is so tetnPered that the .monarch finds himself
-.clutched in his efibrts to seize absolute power ; and
the tsower of the people is so regulated, that an.
archy Is not to be found. • But for us it is to he
apprehended, that when the counterpoise of mon
archy shall tut longer exist, the democratic power
moycarry till before it, and involve the whole
State in confusion and ruin. Then an ambitiona
citizen.maparise, seize the reins of poWer, and
annihilate libel ty forever; for such is the ordina
• ry.courso, of ill balanced democracies,they fall in
to•anarehy and Ihe'nce under aespotism."
• ;It was for JOHN ADAAIS to reply to such argu
ments. His character and his opinions were well
known; and he was not one that would hesitate
in proclaiming them. The speech supposed to
Itai4 Veen made by him on that occasion, is one
Grillo noblest and powerful of of oratory ever
&livered. Following Mr. ,Dieltinson, ho spoke
' in favor of the declaration, as follows: •
"Sink or swim, live or die, survive or • perish, I

This powerful speech clectraled :the assembly ;
.a universal burst of applansc followed it, the
question was settled ; all controversy was at an
end. The majority of the Assembly pronounced
in favor of Independence. The members of
Pennsylvania and Mar ylond were authorized to
vote for the declaration, except Jonx Dicrtxson,'
who was excluded because of dis formal opposi
tion. Consequently on the 4th day of July, 177 G,
upon the report of Thomas Jefferson,John Adams,
Benjamin .Franklin, Roger Sharman , nod Phil
ip Livingston, the thirteen federated colonies dis
solved all their allegianel to the British crown,
and declared themselves FREE AND INDEPENDENT,
under the name of the. thirteen United States of .
America! The manifesto of-Independence pass.
ed by Congress- was written by Tnomns JEFFER
Unanimously passed by the Congress of the Mir
teen U. Slates of America,' July 4th, 1776.

,people to dissolve the

We hold these truths to be selrevident
all men are created equal ; that they are endowed
by the Creator with cermin unalienable rights;
that among those are life, /iberty, and the pursuit
of happiness. That to secure these rights, gee.
ernincuts are instituted among men, deriving their
just pUwers from the consent of the governed ;
that whenever any form of government becomes
destructive allies° ends, it is the right of the peo-
plo to alter or to aboli4h it, and to institute a new
government, laying its foundations on,such princi
ples, and organizing its power in such forms, us to
am shall seem most likely to effect their safety &
happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate, that
governments long established should not be
changed for light and transfent causes; And ac
cordingly all experience bath shown; that man.
kind arc more ilisposed to suffer, while evils ore
sufferable, than to right theinSaves by abolishing
the forme to which they are accustomed. But
when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pur
suing invariably the same object, evinces a do.
sign to reduce - them under absolute_ despotism, it
is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such
government, and to provide new guards for their
future security. Such has •beeti- the patient:suf
ferance of these colonies ; and such now ipthe
necessity which constrains them to alter‘tileir
former syStemn of goveripnent. The history of
the present king Of Great Britain is a history of
repeated injuries and' usurpations; all having in
direct' object the establishment, of an absolute
tyranny over these States. To prove this let facts
be submitted lo_a candid.world. •

A secession Irks occurred in the Church of
Scotland, and there will henceforth be a State
Presbyterian Church and a Seceding Presbyterian
Church. The tsecession arose from nn interfe
rence of the Civil Power in- Ecclesiastical mat
ters. The seceders were led by Dr. Welch, Mod
crater of the General Assembly, who, on the 18th
of May, having rend a paper setting forth the
views entertained by himself and associates, left
his seat and withdrew from the Haltfollawed
those of his _opinion. These seceders then con.
vened separately under the presidency of' the cel
ebrated Dr. ChalmerS. They numbered 400 min.
isters. There remain attached to the establish'.
mud. 793 parish ministers, and 102 ministers of
chapels. All the elergyinen deposed by the late j 1
Majority in the Assembly had. been reinstated.—
The ferment in Edinburgh was very great. -
The London Morning Advertiser says—The
event, in whatever light it is viewed, is one w
such tremendous importance, that words arc
adequate to express the thoughts to which it :nes,
give birth iu every reflecting mind. is an over.
powering contemplation. The world has wit.
tressed no moral event or equal importance for the
list two centuries. Out of 0.00 clergymen in
the Seottish establishment', nearly 500 (taking
with them 500,000 of the people) have severe.,
their connexion with that' establishment, am,
' thrown themselves, their lives and families, no
the providence of that Being for whose truth tin c
have made the 'sacrifice. The Nomintrusinn
clergy stand at this moment before the world. in
the attitude of living martyrs for their print:Mb
and there is a species of living martyednin whi, li
it requires more courage to endure 'than the inai •
tyrdom which is suffered at the stake or on the
Scaffold. No one who can estimate aright the
sacrifices for conscience sake which these gre.
nod good men are now 'milting, can doubt th.,
should the necessity require tt,—and who can te
but it soon may?—they will be equally ready t

Prescott swore Howe shouldn't get over the post

seemed much embarrassed and Mr. Robert Ty
