128               CHURCH REVIEW.

  And now, fellow-citizens, I have briefly discussed
what I am pleased to call the three cardinal principles
of the philosophy of progress. Permit me to say, in
concluding, that despite all adverse circumstances,
               "Let us all be up and doing,
                   With a heart for any fate;
                Still achieving, still pursuing,
                   Learn to labor and to wait."

   Do not become discouraged. America is ours, and
we must prove it. We believe in the fatherhood of God,
and the brotherhood of man; and we join hands with
all the good and true of this land of ours, and in the
name of a common humanity, in the interest of a com-
mon good, and with love for a common country, we
shall help rear upon this western shore a government
more just, more powerful, and more glorious than the
world has ever seen.

ana. Even so far back as the year 1458, is it asserted that
Columbus saw this coast; this was during the Wars of
the Roses, and the same time that Pius II reigned Pope
of Rome. But a further research informs us that
Guiana's real discovery was in 1504 by Vasco Nunez;
during the Papal sway of Julius II, and the primate-
ship of William Wareham. However, it was unknown
to Europe till 1595, while John Whitgift was primate,
