    Excerpt from Oration Delivered on the Eighty-Third Anniversary of the Battle of Minisink, at Goshen, July 22, 1862: In Dedication of a Monument

    But I am also to speak to an assemblage of freemen, convened for such solemn services in a period of their national history, when the Government is called upon to undergo what all nations must submit to first or last - struggle and grapple for its very life; and, while so struggling, demonstrate to the world, not only the strength of Democracies, but the ability and will of such form of Governments to maintain themselves at every hazzard and to the bitter end. I am to speak to living men of living questions, though I am quite sen sible that in speaking of these, I am, as it were, to tread upon fires that have not yet collected cinders enough to cover them.

    But, fellow-citizens, I have no idea that the men of the next generation, in reviewing the proceedings of this day, shall be justified in saying that we did not comprehend the nature of the crisis in the midst of which we are, or the spirit of the age in which we live; and while I trust no thought will arise or word be uttered inappropriate to the solemnity of the occasion, I trust such words shall be uttered as, in the judgment of posterity, shall put us all right on the record.

    To an exact and thorough comprehension of the character of the men, and the debt we owe them, whose memories we are assem bled this day to commemorate, I regard it as peculiarly appropriate to look for a moment to the estimation in which they were held by the generation Immediately succeeding them.

    On the 22d of July, 1822, (forty years ago this day,) the then active men of that period, of all callings and professions in life - to a number hitherto unprecedented in the country, (history says -met where we are now, and formed in solemn funeral procession to inter the bones of those we so honor to-day.
