OUR SISTER REPUBLICS.
These are some grea projects
w'lich after tbey bare leeu ouco fair
ly sot before tue people are sure to
be carried out. Ibey may be
thwarted and even defealel in the
early stages of their progress, bnt
having in them a living principle
"that was'not born to die," they sur
vive alliopposition gaining like An
imus, at every fall or check, a
stronger hold on life and win
ning at last a complete victory and a
perpetual place in the established or
der of things.
A project of this kind was started
over three years ago. It was first
publicly broached on the 29th of
November, 1881, in the invitation is
sued by the secretary of state, to the
various independent governments of
North and South America to appoint
delegates to a congress to bo as
sembled for the purpose of consider
ing and discussing the methods for
preventing war among the nations of
The invitation was accepted with
enthusiasm by Mexico, Brazil, Vene
zuela, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Hon
duras, Costa Kica, San Salvador,
Chili and other South American re
publics. A more auspicious com
mencement could hardly have been
expected, although the change in the
administration and policy of the gov
ernment of the United States, pre
vented its further development and
threw the whole subject in the back
ground, it has been revived in con
gress, and is, we believe, destined to
be prosecuted with a zeal that will
justify the hopes of the friends of
the movement and insure its eventual
The project to which we advert pre
sents irresistible attractions to every
one who has "faith in American free
government. The good it is so admira
bly designed to accomplish, is so great
as to commondit to the favor of every
well wisher of the human race, ItB
mission will be psace and interna
tional brotherhood. It is calculated
not only to prevent suffering, but also
to draw the people of North and
South America together by the ties of
mutual good will and prosperity.
Standing as we do at the head of the
nations of the western continents,
and holding a foremost place in civil
ization, we have every incitement to
promote, by Ihe means we advocate,
the confidence that should be reposed
in us. This influence we ought to
exercise, aud this mor il and commer
cial supremacy of the western world
it is our part to win and retain.
The governments of Europe dread
the effects of stich a congress; after
it has once met, it will continue to
meet, and its conventions at stated
periods will become as regular as
those of our own congress at "Wash
ington. Although the movement will most
effectually diffuse and enforco the
doctrine of America for Americans,
native and adopted, it will carry the
motto into practice on broad enlight
ened and liberal principles, and serve
in Europe as an example for conti
nental statesmanship that will be far
less sectional and limited in scope
than any ever yet advanced by the
political thinkers of the Old World,
and far more conducive to the welfare
of humanity than any likely to ema
nate from any other source lhau the
leading republic of modern times.
The steamships plying between
England and New Zealand are among

if all itB bearings are duly considered,
I venture to say far transcending al
so in importance to the English peo
