Delivered at Nebraska City, If. T.,
FELLOW CITIZENS : We are the in-
habitants of a highly favored country.
We enjoy the blessings ot a govern-
ment, created by the union of sovereign
otates. We have presented to the
world a practical, illustration , of the
principle that man is capable of "self-
government. ... '
Let us endeavor then to mate a
prudent and j'udicious use, of the in
struments that it has pleased an all-wise
Providence, to place in our hands. Let
us cultivate brotherly love, one 'with
another, and strive to preserve har- round him.-, It is the ark of our politi- New York was done, perfect, and pre

Let those whose lots have been cast
in this beautiful and fertile Territory,
where peace reigns and contentment
smiles, those whose energy and
enterprise have caused the desert to
"blossom as the rose, endeavor to
suppress commotion, still discord, and
to. dwell together in friendship and
harmony. God forbid that the dis
graceful scenes, that are presented by
some of the citizens of a sister lern-
tory, should ever be exhibited here. I
would rather see Nebraska, with her
fertile prarics, designed by nature for
the nourishment and happy homes of
our people, severed by some mighty
convulsion of nature, from the rest of
the civilized world, and floating as an
iceberg upon the ocean, than to see
her soil drenched with the blood of her

Will you: 1 pause for a reply.
Friends, we have reason to be proud
of our country. The reflection that
we are citizens -pf America, some by
birth, and perhaps some by adoption,
should fill the heart with pride and
exultation. wherever the American
flag floats, whether on the Mediter
rancan or the Ualtic, the Atlantic or
the Pacific, it affords protection to the
tVmencan citizen. He may be an
exile in a distant land, penniless and
without friends, but when he gazes upon
the glorious "stars and stripes of his
country, fresh hopes spring up in his
bosom, his spirits are revived and new
energy is imparted to the man.
The republics and empires of an
tiquity, and the despotic governments
of modern times, employed much of
their superabundant wealth, in the
erection of splendid ornaments, excit
ing a false and vicious taste, and pro
yoking the national nride and vanity
into an admiration for delusive, unreal,

WASHEIGTON STATUE INATGUEATED. -
E Decidedly the most. interesting fea
ture of the Fourth'of July celebration
in New "York City, was the inagufa

done' with imposing ceremonies. The
spectators were estimated at twenty
thousand, and the wholfi tnilitarv fnrrfi

of 1812, turned out in their strength.

Not long ago a dead body was taken
rom the water at Alexandria, Virginia.
Having been recognized and claimed
by the wife of a citizen as the corpse
of .her husband, it was duly borne to
ho grave with due solemnity, followed
by the widow and children in all the
habiliments of woe., Several days
passed, when tho husband and father,
whose funeral had lately been ccle
brated, suddenly returned in the full
enjoyment of perfect health. , The
surprise with which he was greeted,
and his own on . learning what had
occurred, maybe imagined. The sequel
of this strange story did not terminate
so happily. -The sexton, it seems, had
run upalarge bill for funeral expenses,
which the city authorities refused to
allow, and the consequence was, that
the man actually had to pay for his
Six or seven hours of every day,
men are breathing corpses; the lace
discharges expression; the brain gives
up thinking; life is gone; only the
animal lies there, pulsating, breathing,
snoring helpless as an infant un
noticed as a statue; all gone, all vacant,
empty, useless. Looked at without
educated associations, there is no dif
ference between a man in bed and a
man in a coffin.
And yet, such is the power of the
heart to redeem animal life, and clothe
all rude and uncommon things with its
own leaf bearing branches, that there
is" nothing more exquisite, refined and
pure, and beautiful than the chamber
of the house. Sleep it has sprouted
up with all the flowers of the poets.
The couch from the day that . the
bride sanctifies it to the day that the

the household bed. By its side oscil

crib. In this sacred precinct, the
mother's chamber, lies the .heart of the
family. Here the child learns its

A LESSON FE0M THE BLEBS.
, A gentleman observed, in a thicket
of bushes near his dwelling, a collec
tion of brown thrushes, who for seve
ral days, attracted his attention bv
their loud cries and strange movements.
At length, curiosity was so much ex
cited, that he determined to see if he
could ascertain the cause of the excite-
ient among them. On examing the
bushes he found a female thrush, whose
wing was caught in a limb in such a
way that she could not escape. Near
by was her nest, containing several
half grown birds. On retiring a little
distance, a company of thrushes ap
peared,., with worms and other insects
in their mouth, which they gave first
to the mother, and then to her young;
she, the meanwhile, cheering them in
their labor of love with a song of
gratitude. After watching the interest
ing scene till his curiosity was satisfied,
the gentleman released the poor bird,
when she flew to her nest with a grate
ful song to her deliverer; and her
charitable neighbors dispersed to their
several abodes, singing as they went,
a song of joy.
