Christ tun Iirethren, and FrHoir-Cithcn :
It was deemed expedient that this meeting
should be opened with an uddros, explanatory
of the object ; to point out its importance, and in
inspire us with zeal and unanimity in its prose
cution : which, instead of retarding the business,
might have a tendency to unite our judgments and
our hearts, and hasten our progress to such mea
sures and decisions, as may, in the issue, be hon
oraUe lo ourselves and beneficial to the world.
lie, who now addresses this intelligent assem
bly, feels a pride and a pleasure to be honored by
an audience of freemen and chrittiutiti whom the
haiKTo? God has placed on higher ground, on a
more' elevated situation, than has fallen lo the lot
of any people upon earth, during the long lapse
of six thousand years.
As freemen, enjoying equal rights, you Itow to
no authority but the constitution nnd laws or your
couhlryT " As chrittlaitty you call no man rno
ter you bow to no authority but the laws of
Christ, the great King, and head of his church ;
"who sittetb king? and shall forever the- scep

also know and fctl that you stand lespoiis'ibre to
Uod, to the Church, the State, and posterity, in
bring forward the ljc
which this convention, whs invited to assemble on

Should this detail be considered cither errone

Introductory to our discourse,, and in some
measure connected, with the design of our meet
ing, you will now lend your attention to the read
ing of the last four verses of the 144th Psalm,
the description which a wise a:id piuus prince
has given-of a happy nation :

without resistance, to the chains of oppression :

never have concerted a system of defence. Per

the hope of success, were founded on their reli

who rulcth in, the earth :" They knew " that tho
race was not always to the swift, nor the battle to
the strong." In the name of the Lord of Hosts
did they set up their banners ; and his right hand
and his holy arm, crowned the contest with vic
tory and independence. ' The Lord is a man of
