This narrative will record, too, incidents that occured
•during his successive visits to the principal cities of the
United States, so far. as a knowledge of these incidents
may seem to him calculated to enable the candid and
. intelligent reader to understand distinctly the nature
i^and objects of this enterprize—the principles by which
be has been governed in its execution—the degree of
success that has hitherto crowned his exertions—the use
he bas made of his success, so far as the public are con
cerned—the stage in the prosecution of his design, at
which he has arrived—his plans and intentions with
Ward to its further prosecution, so fur as they can be dis
tinctly foreseen, ahd are likely to be in any degree
te resting to such readers. •
This narrative will commence with his departure from
MiltOn, Albemarle county, Virginia, in 1809, and close
'with his departure from Charleston, for Philadelphia, in
■ MI 6.
This narrative will be followed by the principal part of
•-hn oration,entitled “The Rostrum,” in which he has en
deavored to illustrate the permanent public utility, and
'to display the intrinsic dignity and attractions of the
' species of oratory which he has cultivated; its appropriate
■ ■ sphere, ip contradistinction to other and pre-established
applications of this noble art; its peculiar adaptation to
the age and state of society in which we live, and to the
spirit of a popular government; the subjects best fitted
-for the exercise and exhibition of this species of oratory,
-and the many useful and benificent purposes to which it
maybe made subservient.
A series of shorter passages, from other oratious, pre-
"viouslv delivered from the Rostrum, and a few specimens
of Hiilosophical Criticism, will occupy the last part of
° the "volume.
As this volume is committed to the press, for the pur
pose principally, of enabling the intelligent part of the
public to decide how far the writer is qualified to per-
rorm the duties of a teacher of oratory—to deliver Lec
tures on Rhetoric, accompanied by exercises in compo
sition, criticism, and elocution, to successive classes of
students, in the principal colleges established in the Unit
ed States, it is proper that his pretentions to prac
tical knowledge anil skill in the exercise of orato-
: 'rjr, should be subjected to a Severer test, than the stiper-
•' ficial fugitive ana equivocal impressions, on the minds of
■ a miscellaneous audience, by detlamutions from the Ros
It is fair and
unreflecting sympathy, may have extorted a plaudit, un
consciously, perhaps reluctantly, during the delivery of
'tiis orations, should have an opportunity to retract of
confirm that plaudit;to review calmly the sentiments and
’the style in wiiich they were expressed, on which they
teemed, and were believed, perhaps untruly, to stamp ap
probation, and to decide how fir the impulse of the mo-
-ment was in unison with the dictates of deliberate reflection
The writer feels that this appeal from the impulse of
’ momentary feeling, to the dictates of mature reflection,
'from the auditor to the reader, from the Rostrum to the
-press, is not merely fair and proper.
It is the course which prudence, honor, and integrity,
*the united dictates of personal and social duty, prescribe.
- He well knows, that the plaudit, which the candidate
’‘fbr OfStorical honors, may draw even from an intelligent
- audience, is equivocal and ephemeral, unless it is ratified
'-by the judgment of the intelligent reader, and that in an
.age like this no species of literary empiricism, or impos-
-ture, can escape detection and ignominious exposure,
when anappeal is made from the Rostrum to the press.
He makes this appeal therefore, under a distinct present
timent. thut the sentence pronounced upon his preten
tions will he the award of justice, and he cannot antici-
, spate this award without solicitude and apprehension,

Pursuant to a resolution of Council, the following re
port is published for the information of all concerned.
“The committee to whom was referred the considera
tion of the best mode of redeeming, investing and appro
priating the funds derived from tin emission of corpora
tion treasury change bills, report—that for the further
security of the holders of the said bills, the treasurer do
keep a separate account of the amount issued and that
he do keep the sums in the treasury of the city, to enable
him to pay bills when presented to him, and that on no
occasion do he make use of the sums so received, but for
the payment of the said bills, unless otherwise authorised
by special resolution of council. Your committee are of
opinion, tliAt the amount issued is too small to enable
council to make any appropriation of the same by invest
ment in funds or otherwise to draw interest, and that the
existence of these bills may be too short in their limita
tion to authorise council for the present to make any
permanent appropriation of their proceeds. Your com
mittee further recommend that the treasurer do receive
for said bills, the current money of the city, to wit—the
notes of Bunks which are not depreciated further than
tlie difference of excliange, and that the treasurer furnish
tiie committee of Finance with the amount of change bills
issued, and tlie amount on hand received for the same,
and that he do advertise that persons, holders of tlie
change'bills, will receive payment at any time, by calling
on the treasurer—but no sum under one dollar will be
