The celebration at Lincoln Hall, on Fri
day evening, of Andrew Jackson's victory
over the British at New Orleans, January 8,
1815. was the largest and meet harmonious
meeting we have ever seen in the District of
Columbia, The hall, at an early hoar, was
filled to repletion with one of the most re
spectable audiences ever seen at a public
meeting anywhere, and, by the imtnens
enthusiasm manifested, give evidence that

or freemen much more than we are Domo
crats or Republicans.
We Southern men have learned some
things by bitter experience. We were once
proud and lifted up, felt able to whip five
Yankees apiece, and defied misfortune. We
felt and spoke loftily. Mark what baa be

approve by my presence that I understand to
be the purpose of this meeting ; namely, to
revive the memory of events which shed lus

strengthen our lo-e of liberty and indepe
dence by thinking of what they cost. It is
well for us toloofe beyond the sad scenes of
the late sectional conflict, and recall the
common trials, common dangers, and com

among the American people of all sections.
I am not hear to tear open old wounds, but
to aid in healing them. As a citizen of the
defeated and humiliated section, it might be
thought natural for me to cherish
bitterness and study revenge. And so, per
haps, I might do if no one's fortunes but my
own were at stake. But I cannot forget
that in our homes there are innocent little
prattlers who are to live after us. In our
poverty we can leave them little else, but I
want to leave them a happy, peaceful, free,
well-governed country to live in. These,
my countrymen, are the pledges of my pa

Most bartily, therefore, do I join with you in
celebrating this day as a day ever memorable
in the annuls of our common country. It is
pleasant and profitable to recur to an event
at the rjecollectiou of pride and satisfaction.
The history of that event is so well known
to you that I shall uot dwell upon its details.

"pride goeth before destruction, aud a haugh

thing to me about the battle of New Orleans
is the arrogant spirit with which the British
army marched into it with the impious cry
of "booty and beauty" Upon their lips, aud
the utter discomfiture which followed, with
scarcely a scratch to the army of "Old Hick
ory." It reminds one of the destruction of

Moreover there is another imminent dan

ofren. If States are kept in pupilage aud

long will it be before such an election will
turn upon counting out or counting iu the
votes of some single State whose statehood
is questioned by one party or another ? Or
a State will have two governments, as sever
al have now, two sets of electiors, the re
cognition of one of which sets will decide a
Presidential election. When such a junc

arise in a few years, what assurance have

such a calamity. Having fought through
the whole late war, I am able to realize the
fearful evils of war. and I trust we may see
no more of it iu our country. Rut what I

and avert them by recurring to tbe funda

which lie at the base of our institutions. It
is time for us, also, to banish the spirit ot
sectional strife and ill feeling, and, recog
nizing each other's virtues as well
as fruits, (for we all have both ) learn to
forget and forgive, and be brothers again.
We of the South are not perfect. Neither
are we so bad as our eueuiies paint us.

and many others whose crimes have affronted
high Heaven and whose oppressions might
make even wise men mad."
In eonclusioo, let me pay a tribute to the
horic patience and forbearance of the peo
ple of New Orleans. They show that
greatuess which is superior to all others
the power to rule their own spirits. Such
fortitude under sore trial would do honor to
any race of men ; it is glorious ; it must be
God-given. I hail it as the inspiration of
coming deliverance and the harbinger of
Louisiana's redemption. I thank you, gen
tlemen, for hearing me so patiently.
