    Excerpt from The Historic Parallel, Being a Compilation and Arrangement of Historic Facts

    Since the constitution of our country is more particular ly the outward, expressions of those invaluable and price less principles enunciated in our Declaration of Indepen dence we shall consider more especially, the latter and be fore commencing that pleasing task I wish to refer to a single fact which, when properly understood, will enable usall I think to more fully appreciate the beauty and grand ure of that peerless instrument. There are many very worthy protestant people, who feel that it does not suffici ently recognize the providence of God, and in greatest kind ness wish it was more expressive in that direction; to all such we would recall the letter of St. Paul to the Corinth ians wherein he instructs them as follows: For there are celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial, but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. While this was given as having reference to the resurrection of the spiritual body as distinct from the earthy or physical body, it is equally pertinent, in as much as the civil govern ment is a complete counterpart of the physicial body, as is ecclesiasticism to the spiritual body, the parallel is com plete in all its parts. So we can readily understand why so little prominence is given to the spiritual or ecclesiastical, from the fact, that the tenement they were building was for the earthly and not in any manner connected with the spiritual, for each has its separate and distinct glory. Tne first idea which particularly attracts us, on reading this priceless instrument is its directness terse in its style, as if those old patriot heroes meant business: and we are rather inclined to believe they did. 'we hold these truths to be self evident, no chance for argument there; that all men are created equal - what a thought I from men too who had lived all their lives under that form of government when the mere accident of birth makes of one fish, of the other fowl, and were bold and brave enough to utter a truth so grand, so just, even in the teeth of the power exercising such vexatious restraint over them. That they are en dowed with certain unalienable rights; that to secure these rights governments are instituted among men deriving their just powers from the consent Of the goverened. Here we have an unequivical statement, devoid of all ambiguity as to the sorce of authority in instituting this government by the patriot heroes of 1776. A sentiment more pregnant with possibilities and blessings to mankind, or more in sympathy with the divine order of nature was never uttered by man.
