of the students, and not the students with the rights of the public.  The 

whole case reminds me of what is said to have happened some 

Methodist emigrants to Hayti.  They commenced holding religious 

meetings but as often as they met the Catholics mob[b]ed them.  

The government prohibited their meetings, because they disturbed 

the peace of society.

      From all that appears in the case the young men acted un-

der a high sense of duty, and made no ordinary sacrifice to bless the 

poor and needy for whom none else would make sacrifices.  It is to be hoped 

that the pious devoted and talented young men of the church will follow the 

example.  The noblest achievements of Christianity now to be made in our land, 

are on behalf of the colored people.  Here is the only point where violent perse-

cution is to be met.  Here is the heaviest cross to be borne, and here the 

martyrs crown to be gained.  When Christianity shall have broken every 

yoke, dispelled the night of oppression, and melted away the iron pre-

judice accumulated through many generations, and introduced the glor-

ious morning of universal jubilee, a higher note of praise will 

be sounded the throne of God, and all heaven will be filled with 

joy.  "Glory to God in the highest, on earth peace, good will 

toward men."
