Ladte'and flentlcmen: When we look back at the progress of the human race in the arts 01 civilization, we are forcibly struck with the truth that the sentence of labor pronounced npon oat first parent* as tho condition fcf acquiring material goods, was by no means confined to the lower, and animal wants of man; but that it has th" sam> imperious force as applied to the gratification Ol hi* highest intellectual necessities. We sec, it is true, that Providence has supplied various means of advancement to the human race ; but these arr not thus perfect, as we find -hem, but are rather susceptible of receiving perfection from the appli? cation, not of mere human endeavors, but of those higher powers of iateUect?the image of himself which God has stamped upon the mind of man. it is a remarkable fact that when we cast "or eyes aro.md our world, we find man the most helpless and def...
