You have been in- vited o share our dangers, encounter with us our perils, endure with us our privations, defend with us our country and Jaws, and share with us our djffehtful soil. If you have notencoun-1 tered dangers, it is beca?HPhe enemy have not met us. it you have not shared with us our country, itlias been because peace has not been restored. Patience becomes the soldier of liberty. The love of country swells the patriotic heart. The husband- man waits for the harvest, that he may gather into his granary the rich reward of toil. In these he is eomforied, and his pos- terity made happy. The soldier who hopes for glory, must sub- mit himself to discipline. Subordination gives strength and se- curity to an army. He that will not submit to it when corrected and improved by the experience of ages, does not deserve the proud appellation of a soldier. Our single star inculcates a unity of action, while it illus- trates the perpe...

Among these are many fully competent to conduct any kind of busi...
