President "Wilder, of the New England Historic-Genealogical iu his annual address quoted the expressions of eminent Englishmen iu regard to the greatness of. America: "When speaking of the greatness and influence of our country, with its aspirations, suggestions and possibilities, Dean Stanley said: "It cannot be realized until touched by the actual sight of it.

Then we feel that we are in tho presenceof tnVise great creative epochs of nations, a vast and heavenward inspiring destiny." "What is America now?" said Canon Farrnr, of England. "A mighty civilization, destined perhaps, lo surpass our own, a land of illimitable hopes, a boundless continent! If glorious lias been our legacy to her, glorious, too, have been her gifts to us. She has given us a type at once of ninnhood, cuthusiastic, practical, self-sacrificing, prudent and godly." Hev. Dr. Parker, of London, when siieakinir of our country and its institutions and possibilities, says: "America is more than a continent, it a little world!"

America has a territory fitted to be the base of the largest continuous empire ever established by man."

It is the bigness of that sentiment which has given its best blood 111 vindication of human right." And Prof. Secly, of the English Cambridge University, says: "The United States has solved the problem how, from a fringe of settlement on the Atlantic, a whole continent as iar as me racinc may be peopled una pros per under a united government. If the United htates holds together for another halt centm-v it will, at the end of that time, completely change the condition of such old States as France ana Uermany." BUTLER'S BIBLE.
