of tho achievements of tho U. S. gov
ernment since that time and all our
freedom and liboity, but tho eolobia
tion that docs not also impress upon
Character of the Puritan Fathers of
New England. ,
Ono of tho most prominent fea
tures which distinguished our fore
fathers, was Jlielr determined resist
ance to oppression. They seemed
born and brought up, for tho high and
special purpose of showing to the world
that tho civil and religious rights of
man, the rights of self-gpverniuont, of
conscience, and independent thought,
arc not merely things to be talked of,
and woven into theories, but to be
adopted witli tlie whole strength and
aidor of tho mind, and felt in the pro
foumlost recesses of the lie.ut, and
cart led out into tho general life, and
made the foundation of practical use
fulness, and visible beauty, hh, i t,.m.
Liberty with them, was an ob
ject of too serious desire and stern re
solve, to be personified, allegorized,
and enshrined. They made no goddess
of it, as tho ancients did: they had no
time nor inclination for such trilling;
they felt that liberty was tlie simple
birthright of every human creature;
they culled It so; they claimed it us
such; they reverenced and hold It fast
as the unalienable gift of tho Creator,
which was not to be surrendered to
power, nor sold for wages.
II. It was theirs, as men; without it,
they did not ostoem themselves men;
more than any other privilege or pos
session, it was essential to their happi
ness, for it was essontlal to their ori
ginal nature; and therefore they pre
ferred it above wealth, and ease, and
country; and that they might enjoy
and exercise it fully, they forsook
houses, and lands, and kindred, their
homos, their nutivesoil.iind their fath
They left all these; they left
hngland, which, whatever it might
havo been called, was nut to thorn n
land of freedom; thoy launched forth
on tho pathlehhiccan. tho wide fath
omless ocean, soiled nut by tho earth
beneath, and bounded, all round ami
above, only by hoaven: and It seemed
to them like tlmt better and sublitnor
freedom, which their citiulry knew
not, both of which thoy hud tho con
ception and image in their hearts; and
after a toilsome and painful voyage,
they came to a hard and wintry coast,
unfruitful and desolate, but unguarded
and boundless; its calm silence inter
rupted not the ascent of their prayers;
I am tilling an old tale: but it i- mu
which iuust be told when we speak
of those men. It i- to bo added, that
Ihi-y transmitted their prlneiplts to
their children, and that peopled by
such a race, our ' country was ulwajs
free. So long as its inhabitants wore
unmolested by the mother eountiy. in
tlie exorcise of their important lights
thoy submitted to the form of Uuglisll
governuii'iit; but when thoe riuhts

glorious event, but by no means un

they had always been taught, like Un
truths of the Bible: thoy had descend

repeated to his listening children the
stoiy of his wrongs and his resistance,
and bade them rejoice, though the
wild winds and tlie wild beasts were
howling without, that they had notli
inif to fear from gioul men's oppression.
lioio are tlie beginnings of tlie
Uovolulion. Kvery settler's hearth
was a school of independence: the
scholars were apt. and the lcsons sunk
deeply: and thus it came that our
country was always free; it could not
be other than free.
As deeply seated as was tho prin
ciple of liberty and resistance to arbi
trary power, in tho breasts of the
Puritans, it was not more so titan their
piety and sense of teliglousobligation.
Thoy were emphatically a people
whose tiod was the Lord. Their form
of government was as sti icily theomi
lical. if direct communication be ex
cepted, as was that of tho .lows: itisi.
niucli that it would be dilllcillt to suy.
where there was any civil authority
among thein entirely distinct fi i co-
i lesiasticiil jurisdiction.
Whenever a few of them settled a
towiu they immediately gathered
themselves into a cnureli: and their
elders were magistrates, and their
code of lawswas tho Pentateuch.
These were forms, it is true, but forms
which faithfully indicated principles
and feelings; for no people could havo
adopted such forms, who were not
thoroughly imbued with the spirit,
and bent on the practice, of religion.
Cod was their King; and they re
garded him as truly and literally so,
as if ho had dwelt in a visible palace
in tho midst of their state. Tiny were
his devoted, resolute, humble subjects;
they undertook nothing which they
did not beg of him to prosper; thoy
accomplished nothing without render
ing to him tlie praise; they suffered
nothing without earryingtheirsorrows
to his throne: thoy ate nothing which
they did not implore him to bless.
Their piety was not merely external:
it was sincere: it had the proof of a
good tree in bearing good fruit: it pro
duced ami sustained a strict molality.
Their tenacious purity of manners
and speech obtained for them, in the
mother country, their name of Puri
tans, which, though given in derision,
was as honorable an appellation as
was over bestowed by man on man.
That there were hypocrites among
them, is not to be doubted; but they
were rare; the men who voluntarily
exiled themselves to an unkown coast,
and endured there every toil and hard
ship for conscience' sake, and that
they might servo (Jod in their own
mannor, were not likely to sot eon-
science at dofhiucc, and make tho ser
vice of (Jod a mockery; they wore not
likely to be, neither were they, hypo
crites. I do not know that It would be
arrogating too much for them to say,
that, on tho extended surface of the
globo, thoro was not a slnglo com
munity of men to bo compared with
them, in tho respocts of deep religious
impressions and an exact performance
of moral duty. -Uopritit IKlii.

what effect clothes had on the minds
He found that badly fitting or shabby clothes
were more or less depressing; that if he put a
man into good clothes, well-fitting, good style,
of good quality, the wholeman was" toned up;'
felt better, worth more to himself, to his work,
to the community. It was clearly proved that
clothes are an intellectual and moral force.
In that case, just think how much the general
level of any community is affected and improv
