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
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

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
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
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. They saw an
increasing population u perishing through lack

Uborera into his harvest that there on llut con-fcccratcd-i66tra'
ftftintaln ihouU pen,the
streams thereof would make glad the city of
God." 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

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 st.il siifTiciently fertile, " bearing
all manner of store and, iinallyj i climate
which, in point of health) little if any inferior to
. 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. . .
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!
