J hat Cod bath appointed a j public ministry ; thai the preaching of the word is an appointed means of salvation ; that, under God, the ambassadors of Christ. arc the great pillars on which the building of Zion rests ; that, without these ambassadors, the chariot of the everlasting gospel, and the whole machinery that is now in motion, to convert the world unto Ciod, must stop, no intelligent, sober-minded Christian will deny. And the order, in all the dispensa tions of the providence of God is, that the means must precede the end the cause must produce the effect. 3d. The smiles of divine Providence on a num ber of those literary institutions which have been already established in the United Slates, and the advantages which have resulted from them, may encourage us to engage in the same cause. In general, it may be said that all have been useful, in a less or greater degree. In the New England states, their private schools and public i seats of. learning have always been In proportion to the number of inhabitants, making provision ! I.. L.Mt iknl It a as)iisoi in tf" i sv Ann Knit 14 lA UJ laiv IJIUl liiV VUUVKIIVH w Hv V'lV IIIVHIM W neglected. Thus it has been, that they have al ways had a sufficient aupply of public characters, both in the state and in the church. They have exhibited an example well worthy of our imita tion, by transferring to their children, from one generation to another, that knowledge of religion and love of liberty w hich their forefathers brought with them from their native country. Tor your encouragement to prosecute the in tended object, you will now attend to a short his tory or the College of New-Jersey. This col lege was situated in the village of Princeton, in the year of our Lord 1746. Jonathan Jielchcr was then governor of the ptovince, urd obtained its charter from George II. king of G. Britain. Its first commencement con-isitd of no more than six graduates. But now, iu the space of 74 years, alout 1600 young men have received a liberal education in that seminary. And without partiality, there is no danger in asserting, that, numbers compared, the College of Ncw-Jcisey has sent forth as many great and good men as any insutuuon oi learning upon caitn. rroui the Presidential chair, there is not a station in our government hut has been filled by the stu dents of Nassau Hall. From the first session of Congress jn the year 74,.t.hey have bccn and now are, members of that honorable body ; they have been sent,' in the splendid and important character of ambassadors, to all the courts of Eu rope : they how preside on tlic bench of the su preme court of the nation ; in many also, of the supremeourts jiLlbc8eeraljfate.sAhieLma gistrates in our own, and nearly in all other states : at the bar they have shone with a brilliancy of talent ami eloquence inferior to none: in the medical department, the College of New.Jersey can boast of a Shippcn, a Rush, and a Ramsay. An example of real patriotism, especially for the benefif - of e this assembly, in a son of Nassau Hall, I take the lib erty of relating : Colonel Allen, being offered a large reward to leave the American and go over to the British camp, nobly replied, l am not worth much ; but, low as my priced may be, the King of Great-Britain is not able to make the purchase !" What hath been said as to the many great and useful men that have been educated in the Col-legeofiNew-Jersey, might very justly excite us, as "the friends and lovers of our common coun try, to follow the example of its founders'.- But half hath'not been said ; and the main ob ject of the history of that . institution, on this oc casion! hath not yet been brought Jbrward. In dulge the prolixity attached to old age, and suffer me to proceed. ' The principal design of-the pious founders of the College of New-Jersey, vas to raise up and vation to a needy sinful world.

The mot hiirh God heard, and favored that inMituiion. Its Presidents vrere great men of Cod champions for the Cross of Christ. . Under God, in the hands of an lid wards, a Davis, a Witherspoon, &c. it must prosper ; and its pi ous trustees were nien df the same miud. Three hundred ministers of our holy religion, have been educated in that seminary. J hetc have sown tho seeds oflearning and religion in the various dis ttitt of our extensive country, where God in hi providence called them to reside. It Is not lo our purpose, nor is it my wish, to take away from any Christian denomination what ever. As to the Church universal, " peace bo within her walls, and prosperity within her pala ces." The Presbyterian Church In the United States of America, now consists of one General Assembly, eleven Synods, fifty-four Presbyteries, more than six hundred learned Preachers, and nearly twelve hundred Congregations. Traco the matter back t examine it minutely ; gQ from... the distant streams, up to the fountain ; and you will find that all proceeded from the College of New-Jeisey, as the source. No more shall be said on this subject, and it may be said, without exaggeration or dread of contradiction, that, from the northern extremi ties of New-York, to the Alabama, south from the Atlantic ocean to the Missouri, west, a great share of that political, moral, and religious light which hath been diffused throughout this vast region, hath been derived, either immediately or ultimately, from the College of New-Jersey. This ' handful of corn in the top of the moun tains, haih shaken like the fruit of Lebanon and may, in less than one hundred years, send its fruits, the blessingi of civil and religioua knowledge, to the Pacific ocean, Lord hasten it in thy timpr- Much hath been done for us by our fathera and predecessors : we cannot reouile them i they rest from their labors, and are. followed by their works : but we can do for our posterity what they haverdone for theirs. We are drged on by duty and necessity, and encouraged by example. We now proceed to show, in the 4th and last place, that the Western part of the State of North-Carolina is a favorable situation for a pub lie Seminary of Learning and that it contains re sources to can y it into effect. I. This is a favorable situation for a public seminary of learning. We are a people substan tially united in civil and religious sentiments; as yet of frugal, though decent habits in life ; more on un equality than any other section of the Un ion on this side the states of New-hngland ( none very rich, fewery poor: the people in privato life are not inferior to any of their fellow-citizens :h to general information; few more desirous, were they possessed of the means, to educato their sons : a country not yet led far astray by the jontp and glitter of high life and fashion t where it i thought more economical habits may be observed than are in most of our public seats of learning abroad, or in some not far distant, prohibiting those that arc in moderate circum stances from a liberal education altogether, who J generally make the best scholars and the most useful men ; and poison the minds of some of those whose parents at e wealthy and able to bear the expense : a siifTiciently fertile, " bearing all manner of store and, iinallyj i climate which, in point of health) little if any inferior to anypartoLlhciwhoIej favorable, and, . r t - quality uauuui ministers ot toe rtiew i eumeni, oegminng.. 2. It contains resources to carry the intended institution into effect. The country which it is expected will co-operate in the design, grew daiy, both in wealth and population. In point of agricultural improvement only, in its infancy and situated, as to distance, from seaport towns that the substantial supports of life will never command an immoderate price ; which will fix and continue the rates of boarding at a reasona ble standard, if frugality and economy be intro. dured into the system. . . Wehavlui;lf the twenty counties which may unite in the de sign, contain 200,C00 souls; but it is thought, were the inhabitants carefully numbered, the amount would be nearly, or altogether, 300,000. Allowing a householder, or head of a'family, for every ten souls, the number , would be 30,000 i then, one single dollar from each householder would just make up the $ame sum of 0,000 do! lurs. 'Many you may aay, will give nothings granted; but many will give from 5, say, to 2rt dollars or more and wiU not thjs make up tb.a deficiency ? : This sum, "30,000 dollars, would, perhaps erect all needful buildings, to make a It wpuld pot be as much as the tax - ' ' 'Sir- ,vi.;-.
