MEAGHER FESTIVAL IN BOSTON.
The Meagher Club of United Irishmen and
the Meagher Rifles, of Boston, entertained the
patriot and exile, Thomas JJj:cher, with a
grand bnnquet at Faneuii Ift!l, in eommemora
tion of his thirtieth bir:L-Jay. Several other
military ccmpatka ofPron alio jrdned in be
celebration. Deputations i-i civil and military
associations aue::ded frorri iew York nnd roaaj
other places. Tue military weieiofull dresa
uniform, an I a larje nnsiocr cf lad.es also beiu
in attendance, tba affair was truly splendid.
Altogether, about- seTen hundred persons were
present, amonj whom was Mr. O'Dosokce, who
so recently escaped from Van Dieman's Land,
and whose adventures were so remarkable.
Capt. B. S. Tkeaxor, of the Meagher Fines,
presided on the occasion.
After the viands provided had been disposed
of in the manner customary on such occasions,
letters of apology were read from distinguished
invited gcests. This being done, the following
toasts were proposed : "The President of the
United States," which was received with all the
honors; "The Press," which was responded to
by Geo.. Roberts, Esq., of the Boston Tines;
"The Health of Thomas Francis Meagher," which
was drank with the greatest enthusiasm, and re
sponded to by Mr. Meagher. We find h;s speech
reported in the New York Herald, ss fol
Mr. President aid GcntUrtex,- Having to speak
for myself, I have not zsuch to say. Ycu are
aware that, since rny arrival in this country, I
have sought a exemption -from the Conors
which, at this festivity, you have been pleased
to pay me. Did I consult ray own "disposition,
and permit myself to be governed exclusively
by motives of uatnre purely personal, I should
have still adhsred to the resolution with which
I set out, and in this instance likewise, Lave de- j
clined the favors which, in the midst of so much
elegance and worth, and on a spot so noted, you
hae extended to me.
But, in this city, having on other occasions
met with so cordial a welcome, been helped in
my efforts by so liberal a hand, and altogether
been made sensible of so generous an interest
and so " steadfast a friendship, it struck meiti
would be somewhat ungenerous to deny to you
the gratification of the wishes you hvl cher
ished. Here, in this city, epen my entering into a
wider xpanae, nnd noiser scenes, from the still
and shaded waters of the seclusion I had first
sought, was raj coining wiih an ardeDt anxiety
awaited. Here, in the discharge of those duties
which to m-3 were irksome and distasteful, but
to which the changes and exactions of a new life
imposes, was my footing raide good, my doubt9
dispelled, my wavering prospects strengthened,
and widsned, and su!i'u3ed with the light of a
better fortune. Here, was the pr?sence of the
stranger hailed with a fervor which from his
onind at ouce effaced the impression which the
satirist of j'our steady and cultured habits might
have wrought; and here in the gloom of win
ter, when the white flakes on the trees spoke of
the leaves that were dead, and the great heart
that was for a season dead there came the sun
shine on his path, and with that sunshine, flow
ers in clustering profusion to his feet. Here,
better than all this more fragrant than those
votive flowers, sweeter than the kindling sun
shine, deeper in its significance and more inspi
ring in its effect than all that friendship, zeal
ous, active, strenuous, prodigal as it was were
hearl ar mn J me those strong vibrations of a
public spirit, '.rhicb, for every true word spoken,
claims and ensures an ample bearing; which
for the play of intellect and the workings of the
conscience, demands the widest field ; which
discards, deposes, and annuls the tyranny which
on the one and on the other would inflict the
garb of fashion or the chain of fear; which, in
conscience, io history, in politics, -in religion
instinctively conforming to the provisions under
which we live would to the death maintain
their freedom, deprived of which the intellect
becomes a cripple and the conscience a slave, if
not something more debased : which, in a word
mindful of the good deeds done upon the earth
by those who have broken loose from, and soar
ed above all base restraint, would hedge in with
honor, and do homage to the mind intrepid,
inflexible, and inspiring winch Had .he future,
with all its mysteries, in perils and its glories,
to explore, and the sceptre of truth, piercing the
clouds, and glittering like sapphire in the eter
nal hand, and pointing out the way as the sole
guide in the pilgrimage and battle.
That this spirit was peculiar to the city of
Boston it would not be the truth for nie to say.
Of my experience in other citie3 I preserve a
dininet recollection ; and in the face of that re
collection, I shall not err so grcviously as to ar
rognte to the . community amongst whom I now
stand, the spirit which is diffused throughout
Of that Union I have visited five and twenty
States ; and that the spirit of which I spe.ik,
was evident, active, paramount in each and all,
in strict truth, I here assert.
For my part so far as this question is con
cerned, and it is the vital question, if not the
supreme, question of all I have seen no differ
ence between the North and South, between the
East and West. Differences of climate, differ
ences of race, differences in the capabilities of
tae ecu, in - the pursuits of the people in the
lays, in social tastes marked and ineffaceable
differences, in these conditions and accidents of
life, I have observed; but everywhere every
where amongst the citizens of this marvellous
Tepubiic amongst all who look up with loyalty
to that unviolated and inviolable flag and love it
as the symbol of their confraternity everywhere
have I found that freedom of thought, freedom
of speech, freedom of discussion, are rights sol
emnly declared in the instruments under which
these various States, are moulded, admitted by
th willing sense guaranteed by the laws, and
by the intuitive conservatism of the people
-Yet, if this can be said, without exception, of
tha several States I have visited and be 6poken
of thorn in terms of congratulation, , it must be
also said of Boston, and be said especially of
those whom I now address bo said of them,
with marked reverence in consequence of the
holtilities which I am told, secrets and accu
mulates itself against that spirit and those citi
zens in certain quarters, to which I for one, am
not sufficiently disposed or interested to al
lude. . ' -
Let it, then, snSicefor mo to say," that having
been made sensible, to. a singular degree, of the
kindness of the citizens of Boston, and been im
pressed . with the spirit which actuates them,
came to the conclusion that it would be incon
siderate of me not to make some return for that
kindness, and more than inconsiderate to with
hold my testimony, insufficient as it is, in favor
of that spirit, llence it is, gentlemen, that I
am with you this . evening, and in obedience to
your wishes; with a proud heart participate in
the profuse festivities you have provided.
And now that I have given yon the reasons
which induced me to relax in this instance, the
resolution to which I have heretofore adhered,
let me assure you in words that are of sterling
stamp, however rudely they may be wrought
that I feel happy in your society, and in the
greetings you have given me I 6incere!y ex
As I said before as I said on many occasions
similar to the present I set no value on cheers,
parades, or banquets. These, indeed, may be
evidences of an honest enthusiasm evidences
of an enthusiasm evoked by a distant reputation.

Transitory emotions, such as the love of novelty,
be for a time sustained. But with me other tri
butestributes of a less perishable nature and
material possesses the preference.
Short as my experience of public life has
been, it has been long enough to inculcate that

ness, and the etfigy has grown grey.
In no school howsoever wise mav be the les
sons howsoever holy may be the lives of those
wno teacn therein 13 the vanity and precari
ousness of worldly honors so forcibly impressed
upon the mind, as in that sphere, where, with
the interests and passions of the multitude, men
come in contact, and where as there are manv
instances of the like on record the cloud breaks
in sudden wrath above the head which was
crowned but yesterday, nnd the favorite be
comes an outcast.
So frequent have been these examples, that
centuries of history have ia vain been written,
if men doing good deeds, following out great
purposes, and bent upon a great result set
their hearts upon a compensation in this world
L.ut it thus I nave been taught to estimate
the applause and pageantry with which most
men are haned in public life regarding both as
little better than the whirling dust of the high
way, or the froth and bubble of the sea I have
at the same time been taught to value, and as a
pmUu Imettro t- regard that" fAVOr, that
trust, that friendship, which approaches, en
compasses, and clings to one after the excite
ment which accompanied his first appearance
had died away, and the durability of the impres
sions then avowed in his regard have been test
ed by observation, by criticism, by the ordinary
effects of time, and, it may have been, by an
antagonism, reckless and relentless. The friend
ship coming to one thus steadily," temperately,
courageously coming to one when the tide has
retired, and he stands as it were alone on the'
silent shore, dividing his thoughts between the
past and the future, the wild path he has corne,
and the yet more perilous one on which he has
yet to set his toot-prints the friendship which
thus encircles one is above all price, for, in its
growth, it has given promise of its immutabili
ty. That the feeling you exhibit towards me
may be so considered and described, no one,
however querulous or conscientious he may be,
will have the temerity to dispute.
Gentlemen, I know not whether there here ex
ists a concurrence of opinions with those I hold
and have avowed, with regard to certain ques
tions the school question, for instance; or whe
ther if the votes were taken 1 should appear in
a minority of one. Neither am I anxious, out
of these alternatives, to ascertain what the fact
is. When I consider it proper to give an opin
ion one way or the other, on any theory, per
sonage, or event, I do so on my own accord, on
my own responsibility, for its own worth, for
better or for worse. 1 seek the imposition of
my opiuions on 110 man. I ask no man to back
them. More than this, I should feel aggrieved
that any friend of mine, controlled by private
reasons, should hesitate to differ from me; or to
speak more accurately, should hesitate to avow
his difference on nny question which has elicited
from me an unmistakeable expression.
Honesty, thorough independence of mind,
high moral courage these I place above the
dearest friendship. In an enemy, the deadliest
I might strike against, I would do honor to these
qualities. Active in a friend though they met
me at every point they would not estrange, but
rivet my confidence in his sympathy elevating
and not depressing my conception of hi3 good
ness. Thus I speak, having well known, and yet
knowing what sterling friendship 13 the song H
wakes from the saddest heart the light it pours
down through the clouds that gather above the
household the fragrance it steals from the dul
lest or the rankest weeds that intercept our path,
or spring from the ruins of hopes struck down.
Thus I speak, who, not for all the perfumed isl
ands of the South Pacific not for all those cham
bers roofed with cinnibar nnd paved with silver,
of which a brave old seaman of your navy, in
his description of the Amazon, ha3 lately spoken
who, not lor oil those wondrous treasures,
would exchange oue of those friendships it was
my fortune to find whilst I was yet a child in the
groves that were vocal with the songs and peo
pled with the shades of the priests the poets,
the Boldiers of the elder times in their long
robes, and the snow-white fillet, and the Hyperi
on star upon the brow. I do not- inquire, then,
whether you concur with everything oranything
I may have said, here or elsewhere. On the
contrary, I assume that you dissent from nie on
many points ; and yet I say, that for this very
difference of opinion I set the higher value on
the compliment you have paid me. And why ?
Why, for this very difference which may exist
between us, do I the more preciously regard the
trust and firiendship which, with the ringing
cheer and flashing cup you have pledged me in
this old hall this evening. For this reason as I
have a few moments before stated that it de
notes the prevalence amongst you of that just,
that tolerant, that liberal spirit, which gallantly
challenges to the proof opinions maintained in
conscience to be true which fears not to test
them in the lists where the silver spears of in
tellect make trial of their mettle which clears
the ground, admires the bearing, adjudges vic
tory, awards the prize even to the champion
wnose cry ana crest is otner man your own a
spirit sustaining the public mind in a state of
healthful, and brilliant, and courageous activity,
where it would otherwise cower, darken, and
stagnate a spirit which is the foundation of
charity, nnd peace, and propriety, and a grace
ful order amongst men a spirit which brings
dismay upon the workers in deceit, poverty and
shame to those who gamble with the credulity of
a people brings on error, exposure, night, and
consternation, and to tho despotism, of which all
these evil things are but the agencies and weap
ons, dethronement and annihilation a spirit
which, if not fostered by her children the Com
monwealth, that was cradled here, shall have
fewer days than Carthage or Genoa, or Venice,
which, in their generation, were less favored
than you have been ; but which, if, on the other
hand, preserved, shall lift this republic high
above the infirmities and calamities that have
overtaken, heretofore, the prosperous and migh
ty ones of earth setting it, like a city of gold,
upon an everlasting hill.
In this spirit, I conceive, you have met me at
this festival. You are true to me. if I mistake
not simply because I have been true to myself,
that is, true to my conscience, my memory, my
faith," my convictions true to the intellect I had
from uod, and the views of events and men
which through that intellect have to me been
made manifest. To this end I have laid aside
some honors, which if rightfully obtained if
won without the cost of truth might have been
pleasantly and gracefully worn. To be thus
have I encountered no stinted measure of re
proof, and clamor, and revilings. To this end
have I incurred the dismal and sagacious nod,
the peevish admonition, the hasty imprecation
of those who are ever capitulating to, or striking
shallow partnerships with the wrong dealers
in dodges, compromises, and such small ware.
To this end have I preferred to stand aloof from
my own people, and accept their suspicion, their
distrust, their emnity for a season, rather than
surrender to them that which they gave not, and
could never take away.
Still bent upon this cours'e like Kent, banish
ed from the court of Lear, still pursuing y
old course in a country new I trust, whatever
my fortune may be into whatever position I
may be conducted that I shall do something to
fulfil the expectations you have formed some
thing, however little, that may induce you not
to regret the calculations, or revoke the confi
dence with which, as birth day gifts, you have
this day enriched me.
Yet, be that as it may, my mind is fixed my
course taken and whatever fortune may betide,
from that course I shall not depart, though I
walk it alone. If I remember right, it is Sir
Thomas More, who has written that "if a man
be sincerely wedded to Truth, he must make up
his mind to find her a portionless virgin, and he
must take her for herself alone. The contract,
too, must be to love, cherish and obey her, not
only until death, but beyond it ; for this a union
that must survive not only Death, but time, the
conqueror of Death."
I have looked beyond the circle in which, for
the moment, we live, and move, and have our
being have looked into that fresh field lying be
yond there, and stretching away towards eterni
ty have there fixed upon a point to which my
aim and footsteps shall be unswervingly direct
ed. To that point, turning neither to the right
nor to the left, heeding neither cheers nor hoot
ings, in all seasons, and whatever may cross my
path, I shall proceed with the hope that one day,
as the sun of life is going down, I may reach the
summit, and before that sun has sunk in the
unknown sea, may plant thereon the staff I car
ry, nnd decked with a garland sacred to the
truth, leave it to mark the years I have journey
ed from the cradle to the grave.

On the petition of Thomas H. Porter, of the
