UTEUATIiKE AX KKLIUIO.V-THEIIt CO
InACQURAL ADDRESS DELIVERED , BY
Prof-.Wf I. NicnqLS, a. m., of Asn
land Colleqe; Sept. 15th.
"The chief glory of a nation" says
thq great English Lexicographer, Dr.
Johnson, "consists in its authors."
Another equally eminent authority!!
proclaimed ,. "Let me make tho poetry
lts laws or formttlatts its ere
"Show me. tho books -that a man
reads," says a third, "and I will tell
you the character of the man."
Thus it happens, that accumulated
evidence, establishes beyond cavil, tho
fact, that the Literature of a nation,
its learning, its science, its let
ters, its authorship, its scholastic
achievements of everydegree, isa prime
factor in determining national charac
ter, permanence and greatness.
A single illustration of this propo
sition must convince the most skepti
cal. Our own government entered upon
itsjdistinctive national career under
auspices M-holly without predecent-in
the history of nations.
While other nations have struggled
up slowly and painfully from low con
ditions, trailing their path of progress
with tl.i) blood of martyrs, patriots and
heroes; evolving with toil and sweat
and tears, strength out of weakness,
light out of darkness; faith, supersti
tion, learning, culture art and scienco
out of grossest ignorenco and godless
creeds, the United States, like a ship
full rigged and manned, swept grandly
out upon the sea of national progress
freighted with the wealth of civiliza
tion and the nobler arts, with the niag.
na charta of free and equal rights, of
civil nnd religious lil)erty, with con
stitutional guarantees and safe guards
and the highest, noblest, divinest gift
of God to man, a pure christian
lailfl. aria tt tolerant clu.'oilan prati-
And do we ask who were these who
planned so wisely and builded so well?
"Wo know what masters laid the keel
What workman wrought the ribs of steel
What made each mast and sail nnd rope
AYbat Anvils rung, what hammers beat
In what a forge and what a heat
Were shaped the anchors of thy hope."
Every lip in this assembly to-ifay
is whispering with reverent accents
tho names of Franklin, Adams, Jay,
Jefferson, Washington, Hamilton,
Henry, Madison amln host of ethers,
heroes, jiatriots'and statesmen, men of
culture, of letters,- cf scholastic at
tainments, and above all men who
with a dee) and abiding faith in the
God of nations,' sought the glory of
their country and the moral and intel
lectual elevation of their race.
Passing now from particular illustra
tion to general statement, we may
safely assume that Learning and Re
ligion are the chief factors in promot
ing human welfare; that to theso two,
indissolubly joined, the race must look
for its emancipation from the bond
age of error and for its moral andsocial
elevation In discussing this proposition-wo
remark: 1st, That from the
beginning Religion has fostered Learn
ing with zealous care; or if wo may be
allowed a figure involving a relation
ship most vital and tender we shall
say that Learning is the child of Re
ligion and the parent with pore than
maternal care hasnurturedand watched
over her offspring. From earliest an
tiquity to comparatively recent
times, Learning has been peculiarly
the possession of the priestly class.
Tho erudition of the sacerdotal class
es in Egypt, in China, in India, in
fact inall the ancient empires of the
Orient, is too well known to need com
ment The voluminous writings of
Confucius the founder, of a religion
boasting more devotees than those of
all others combined, professedly jiad
in view the cultivation of letters and
the preservation of learning. The
moit valuable manuscripts of Greek
and "Roman Classic Literature owe
their preservation to the zealous care
of the church.
Amid the sack of royal cities; the
overthrow of dynasties and powers;
the palling of a - higher civilization,
the loss of priceless arts, and treasured
sciences, amid anarchy and ruin and
the beastly excesses of savago hordes
fattened with slaughter and the spoils
of war; these priceless treasures of a
classic age were hoarded in priestly
cells and guarded by the time-defying
walls of sacred raonastarics.
When tho fierce and bloody Turk
fastened upon "the great capital of
Eastern civilization and culture, the
city of Constantine, and the Cross
gave war beforer the Orescent, tho
learning which fled before the- savago
conquerer was welcomed to the "great
universities which religion had already
planted in the heart of Europe.
'And in our own land we may safo
ly say there is' not a. school of estal-
uuea iiut uvre ira origin utrectiyor in
directly to religionists nnd their coad
jutors. We must agree then with the
highestauthority of this or any otherage,
we mean the author of the "History of
civilization," "that all literary life pro
ceeded from tho clerical and that all tho
eruditions of science, language and let
ters has proceeded from schools and
Universities founded in the interests
If then these things bo true, and
who can deny thcmJ are wo not to

cious inauguration of this enterprise to
celebrate which we are met 1
We are to-day engaged in a work
of no common interest. We are laying,
as we trust, broad and deep the foun
dations of an institution of learning;
an institution where our children and
our children's children shall be trained
for vast and extended usefulness; an
institution that shall wield an influence
not only upon our own but on every
From these halls of learning shall go
out we trust men and women who
shall stamp their impress upon ' tho
times; -who shall determine and .mould
the culture of their age. Wo expect to
"Men whom the lust of office cannot kill,
Men whom the spoils of ofllcc cannot buy,
Men who possess opinions and a will,
Men who have honor men who will not lie,
Men who can stand licsldo a demrfgoguo
And dam his treacherous flatteries with

In public duty nnd in private thinking."
These are the men the -world needs
to day; and to this work we pledge our
highest, best endeavors.
And in the prosecution of this en
terprise we have called to our aid the
sanctities of the christian religion.
Seeking christian culture and
christian character wo Jiavu placed
our institution under tho fostering
care of one of the leading branches of
the great Protestant Church, believing
that only in a vital union of religion
and learning we shall find a realization
of Our hopes. .
And, I believe, I voico a common
sentiment of the Trustees and Faculty
wheh'I say that in impressing into our
service the sanctities of the christian
religion we shall with care and watch
fulness keep ourselves above nnd be
yond the baneful influences of bigots
or, sectaries of every sort. The com
mon ground of christain faith and
hope where all good men may meet
and grasp hands shall be tho arena of
all our labors. Again I say may wo
not congratulate ourselves upon this

And hero we enter upon a field of
thought too vast for critical review in
the time allotted us.
Volumes might bo. devoted to this
theme and the subject remain unex
hausted still. A careful review would
bring before us in vast procession -the
scholasticism of the ages: the history
of every science; tho development of
every art; the growth of every system
It would lead us to a study of the
language and literature of many peo
ples, their social institutions and their
moral statistics. Wo should And our
selves treading now tho flowery fields of
Poesy, now the mazy labyrinths of "fio
tion"and again groping ninid tho somber
shades of archeological and antiqua
rian rscarch. Wo must therefore
content ourselves with bare outlines,
selecting here and there an isolated
fact in support of our theory.
In the study of Philology, we shall
find the initial efforts of every people
in their written language to have been
in the direction of the religious idea,
the heathen developing tho Theogomy
and the christian the Theodicy of his
Tho Immortal Illiad of Homer,
what is it but tho Thcogamio system
of tho Pagan Greek? and tho sublime
conceptions of tho book and Job what
are they but tho Theodicy of Iho

as every shade of human want

without a thrill, that this glorious

Again in tho domain of physical sci
enco there can be found no real antag- '
onism between revealed religion and,1
the researches of scientists. '. '
It is true thatVhcn Columbus for
mulated his theory of the spherocity of
the earth, the churchmen stood aghast
believing, it rank- heresy. So when
Galileo promulgated his theory of the
revolution of tho planets tho monkish
scholastics raged upon him and Lis
choice lay between revocation and the
Yet who does not know that the
real antagonism was not between learn
ing and religion, but between learning
and ignorance, which too often garbs
itself in ecclesiastical robes?
Again, in later times, when Geology
opened its marvelous pages, when the
old rocks began to tell their strange
goiH nges-of extfnet fcrnrrr-
and species, of epochs and periods so
voiceless and remote that the six thous
and years which Chronology had as
signed to the Mosaic Rccord,dwindlcd
to a hand's breadth by comparison, the
cry went up "Geology has destroyed
tho Bible; Scienco nnd Revelation are
in conflict." "If Science stands, Reve
lation and all that is built upon it must
fall." "But the story of th rocks and
the" story of Moses both stand and not
a Scientist in all tho schools to-day
claims any conflict between, them, for7

Again, in the field of high art, we
shall find Painting, Sculpture, Music,
auxiliaries of Religion, and not in any
sense opposers of it.
In Painting tho masterpieces of tho
ages have been of Religious inspiration
of which "The Madonna and Child,"
"The Last Supper," nnd "The Crucifix
ion" may be taken as models.
In music the grandest conceptions
that have come down to us through the
ages past, throbbing and thrilling
through the great heat of humanity are
the solemn, woishipful Oratorios, tho
grandly resounding anthems and tho
"Hymns of loftypraise.'The Miserere,"
"The Te Deum" and "Tho Gloria in
Excelsis." Music is the native tongue
of exulting praise, of solemn worship,
of glad thanks giving. It may voice
alike the despairing wail of lost souls,
or the triumphant songs of those who
have come up out of great tribulation
and are at last adorned with the gleam
ing robes and glittering crowns of the
In the mechanic and ; indus
trial arts we shall find equally cheering
results. The first use to which the art
of printing was put was to multiply the
copies of the Scripture.
The first book ever printed was tho
word of God. ,,- r'H'
And while we cannot dwell upon
this point, we may say ingeneral terms,
that- civilization and religion are so
closely allied, so nearly identified at
every point, that what ever promotes
the one must necessarily promote tho

the great inventions of modern civiliza
