YOU HR AYE, On the occasion of the Presentation of the life-size. Portrait of the illustrious Samuel Thomson, so the Reform Medical College of Georgia, at Con cert Hall , Macon, on tbe evening of March l<rf, 1 *6O. This is it great and gloriou* oecitaion. The hopes that have lit up our pathway along the summit of years, in this hour find their triumphant and glorious fruition. We be hold him whose very name the wave of pop ular opinion submerged for nearly half a century, to-day rise up, in memory, before us, and on that canvass live again for pos terity. When men first fell in prostrate devotion to the sun, it was not when clouds hung up on the sky and obscured bis lustre, but when in all the blaze of his glory he lit up the immensities of space, and the grandeur and majesty of his presence was felt as the eye of God, watching over the universe. It was when the streams trickling down the hills smiled in his beams, and tbe trees and grass and flowers warmed into bloom and beauty at the touch that rippled with light the laugh ing air as it played with the landscape. It was then that men fell in idolatrous ado ration. And as, with the benighted and uncivilized of the centuries that have long since slept, we find human nature still re tains her laudatory appreciation* of brilliant displayg, still choriihes her admiration for splendid and triumphal greatness, and is still blind and perverse to the merit that walks along in humility. The pomp and vanity of the long looked for Jew's Messiah, was not more contradic tory of reason anc intelligence than the pre dicated judgment of mankind on the glory of an action by the brilliancy of the effect and success that attends it. Truth never regards the locality, the hu mility or the glow and glory that gives birth to immortal things ; with the eye of Philos ophy she estimates human nature in every condition by the test es her own integrity and intelligence, whether “buttoned up and laced in the forms and cereraonios of civiliza tion, or at her ease and unrestrained in the light and feathered costume of the savage.*’ She came to earth in Lo light of glory, no “medals, ranks, ribbons, lace, embroidery or scarlet” glittered upon her brow, there was no diamond decorations, no triumphal entry, no bombastic harangue, but silently, when “The sun went down n> ouuu. _..i 4 mourn, The sad necessity of his return,” when the starry shade fell in solitary loveli ness over the plains of Bethlehem, did the first living representative of truth open eyes upon the world. Thera was no emblematic purple, there was no kingly court, no Olym pian Jupiter to thunder forth its arrival, no guns roared in the park, no pealing bells gave evidence of rejoicing ; beit the little stars alone watched the hour, and pausing on their journey, folded up their wings to sleep ’till morn. What an impressive lesson to the public opinion, that now sways and rules the world, and yet what is this public opinion tbat im peratively demands the auxiliaries of wealth and power to challenge its attention or ven eration. It has no limits, nor has it any do mains, it takes its own illusion for senti ments and fools make (hem maxims; like the rain, opinions are born in high places and soon fall down to mingle with the earth. To breast this public opinion, to trample on its pretensions and authority, to show my disregard for opinions born in high places, my contempt for exploded dogmas, my utter detestation of every dictation that clips the wings of discovery, so that it can neither walk nor fly, I am hero this night to avow, publish and declare my veneration and es teem tor the memory and services of Samuel Thomson, whose likeness brings back the discoveries he made in Medical Scienco, and inspires his disciples with new seal and new aspirations in the great and glorious cause which he bequeathed to the men who are here around me, to be transmitted down to posterity. I do not care whence he sprung; who was his lather or his mother, whether be toiled for his daily bread, wheth er he was learned in the schools, or had ben taught by naturo. If wealth had nunedhim, folly played with him, vanity clothed him, he would have left no tracks in the path of scienco, he would have proclaimed ao prin ciples to rally us around Reform, ready to shed the last drop of blood in vindication of its truth. When wo gaxe in raptura at the picture of Mirabcau, when we tee him “hi# breaet di lated with an impetuous breathing, hie lion sac become wrinkled and contorted, hi# eye# shoot forth flame, when he roared and stamp ed and ahook the fierce matt of hit hair whit ened with foam, tbat trod the tribune with the supreme authority of a master and the imperial air of a King who would ask hit origin or hi# authority. Surely God makes some men that rise up like mountain! and conceal from view the anceetry that lie shrouded behind them. Look at Napoleon, that made for himself an alphabet of battles, every letter of which was a victory ; ace h*m as amid the thunder and lightning of war he issuee the decrees of fate, regulatee, organise#, establiahea and in •titutee law, order and government over ter ritories still wet with blood. Bee the nation# as they lift their head# In wonder and bew at hi# approach. Who cam irhenca ha sprung. The eye can scarce reach the sum mit of his glory, and is toe much daasled to discover the base from which it grow#. at Washington l In Aha language of another, “his fame is eternity, his resi dence creation.” See him he stands on the arch of fame, his arms entwined about liberty, having washed the blood es battle# from her face in the waters of glory and then risieg up to the embrace of immortality. But I might exhaust your own patience and myself in multiplying these examplM of greatness, so inspiring as tomakeyou forget the source of its origin. To me the propo sition is so self-evidently sustained- that I shall not consider the birth or other early associations of Dr. Samuel Thomson, in pre senting to your miDds the reasons for which we consider him eminently entitled to this mark of our public veneration and esteem. As this will require of me a review of Medical Science and the proper illustration i of his discoveries, by bringing them promi . nently forward. It may not be regarded unnecessary to bespeak your attention and i patience. I am aware that many regard medicine as a dry subject, as one not calcu lated to awaken interest; but let me here ask such if they have ever reflected on the fact that it is among the most important sub ject* in which you can find human interests implanted—it is associated with death ; the solemn hour approaches us all, when medi cine at which we have, in the pride of health, laughed and jeered, must be rseorted to f>r the purpoao es restoring health, or saving u* from a premature death; when the wife stands, agonized, by the bed-side of some suffering husband, one whose 7 ery look was life to her, whose smile brought sunshine to her heart and whose presence wae as summer to his household, as her eyes fill with tears that silently steal down her cheeks and make the future look cheerless and hopeless ; think you, has ske no interest in the subject of medicine; or the husband, as he eeee the face that lit up smiles at his approach, now writhing with pain, feels the little hand as soft as velvet now hot with fever, hears the voice that once With merry laugh flung down a shower of sunshiny thoughts around his heart, now scarce articulate and feeble, and her lips like heated coral, with no dew of health upon them, think you, as he sees day and night drag by their weary and saddened hours, and he begins to feel death’s shadows creeping from the walls, and all of earth ha loved mt: t soon be tsrn from his side, his hopes bleeding, his heart broken, amid hi* sighs and tears has he no interest in this theme. The most absorbing intereet clings around this subject. Atsueh an hour as I have described, imagine aomo one enter and say, dry tnoac tears, let tny Peart cease its sighs, let thy spirit be gladdened. I can re store this sweet and lovely form to health; she shall pillow her head upon your breast; her heart shall beat responsive to your own ; her voiee shall sing again with merriment, and away down the hill of life, when the suns of many a year shall have risen and set, you will stand with her, pleased with the contemplations of the past and cheered by , the anticipation* of the future. For such a | scene language is tonguelese; though it went upon its knees and begged for words, it would 1 still rise up mute with tears and silence. Many a scene like this the Reform Physi cian has had transpire ; many a time has the reward of many a weary journey been found in the pleasure of such a moment; and sure ly a single instance of such ought to entitle the father of the system to merited honors. I see around me men who love that form; who glory in Thomson, because their own hearts beat fast as they think on loved ones saved, whom they know must have perished save by the use of the very means he has set forth, discovered and defended ; and is it not natural that when this has happened until over four millions of people are believers in his system of medication, have used his treat ment and have preserved liveedear to them, that they should rejoice in this scene and re gard it aa appropriate and proper. The statesman may save a sinking Empire; the warrior carry ita flag to victory ; the lawyer expound ita laws; but the physician is the preverver of the life of ita paople. The statesman, with his arguments, may over power opjioeition to his country, the warrior go out and crush ita foes, but the physician goea forth to meet pestilence, welcome peril, and, in tho discharge of his duty, shake hands with death to preserve the health of the citi zen ; honors are heaped upon men who kill, and seldom on men who cure. The Captain who captures an Indian gets mtfre credit than the Doctor who cures a camp; and yet aay Allopathic friends, for whom I have the highest respect, and who think with me, this public opinion is wrong, outrageously wrong, will, in the very instant of the acknowledge ment, urge ita evidenee in favor of the prac tice they puraue. Now, I care hut little for a cause only sustained by the majority of public opinions; it is the minorities that have planted the flag of victory when dan ger’s hreaea throat gaped widest; minorities have been the oppressed, while majorities have aa invariably been the oppressors; mi norities have lod along the path where revo lutions for the peoples right’s have si umber ed and waked them into power; minorities have been first to light the torch of liberty, and will be last at the spot when minorities may ex nguish It. I have no desire to deal in the utterance of vituperative epithets against my Allo pathic friends. I shall not abuse honsaty of opinion or of purpose, though I may bs forced to smile at the ignorance with which they are assooiated ; net ignorance in the classic literatura of the dgy, not ignorance of the learning of the books, but ignorane* of ’he laws of life and the means by Whioh diseMe enn he snfely and speedily eared.— That the honow of state nod country seldom come tc the profession of medicine is 100 true to admit of serious discussion. “Why has all the antiquities of the past, on which they to largely boast, failed to gain them a single honor in the present. Is it that the people have learned how ridiculous is such a claim, and that antiquity, no matter how much paraded, fails to attract tbe attention or respect of mankind. lam not opposed to things that are old when they are venera ble for qualities apart from age. But while I could glow with enthusiasm, standing in the shadow ot the Pyramids and dreaming of the greatness of these immortal founders, I could but smile to see some lover of antiqu ity, for hourr, endeavoring to deevpher a grecian coin or indulge in transport over a button off a Roman’s breeches. Is it this growing disregard for antiquity, or is it that the intelligence of this century can but smile at the principles and practice of the antiqua ted and ancient physicians. Who, but feels a smile steal upon his lips, as he thinks of a donkeys brains “dried in the smoke of certain leaves” as aprescription for falling sickness, or the blood of a weaxel pulverised with snail shells, or tying to the arm the little stones taken from the gizzard of young swal low* for the same disease ; or what would s patient earo for your antiquity, if you wer® to prescribe for him Vulturs'i flesh ‘especial ly when be hath eaten hi* full of man’s Aceh’, or give him a broth made of a sea scorpion, or make him go out and consult a Hyena, or carry about you the top end of a mouses’ ear, or a cat* rpillar, or swallow cob webs, goose-greaee and spideri. I ask you if you would not laugh at the antiquity of medicine and ay, “Gentlemen you must reform your practice, you must be come Reform Physicians before you can pre scribe any of your folliee forme.” I have but glanced at a few of the commonest pre scriplions of antiquity, and such as I could use without offending the e*r or taste of this audienc*. Surely nesaults on the ignorance of Samuel Thomson come with a bad grace from men whose boasted origin is thus steeped in ab surdities so great as to shock the lingering intelligence of an imbecile. It is the pride of Reformer# in Medical Science that they trace their origin to a Christian and civilized century, and to a man whose likeness, on that canvass, brings back a form that nobly stood up in thia century to stem tbis current of antiquated folly and turn it back to the ages of the dead. Im stream was not destined to overflow tho channels of investigation in which intelli gence began to anticipate the rise of princi ples that would bear upon their breset the weal and welfare of mankind. Too long had men slept upon their rights and let this sub ject of medicine droop and die with tho weight offolly their vanity and preemption had forced hsr to carry. Every other science had sprung upon its feet and was marching over tho battlements of error and supersti tion. Newton had established his legislation over the minds of Europe, and tne systems of Physical Astronomy, illumined by the genius of a Kepler, Descartes and Hamsted, the Car tesian philosophy of Mechanics, Optics, Hy drostatics and Formal Astronomy, all gave way before the law of universal gravitation a# the ruling principle of all cosmical phe nomena, and anew light overflowed history that has ever since continued to rise and shine mere brilliant in its various applications to the complexity of subjects in which ita sub lime aad glorious inspiration has been in voked. Thermatics and Atmology have received the illustrative investigations of some of the most distinguished Reformers in physical science, the laws of polarization, the radia tion of heat. Atmology in its phenomena of vapor and air and the elastic laws of stesm as applied in practical to the engines that cross our plains and the ship* that walk our waters, have been steadily ad vancing into more important usefulness by the reform of old opinions, and the establish ment of new discoveries that contribute to the intelligence, the greatness, the civilisa tion and the happiness of our race. Law has moved forward with tho advanc ing tides of improvement; human liberty hae become more sacred, the claims of justice become more fully recognised. Tho citisea feels the protection that lives around him and manifests ita powers for tho guardian ship of the press and the independence of speech. No iongercan religious persecution lilt ita arm in the presence of the law to crush out thought and enforce obedience to its un intelligible dogmas. No courts of accleaias tical commission sits in judgment on the creeds or conscience of men. No longer can antiquity give sanction to inquisition, and no longer partisan judges ini ct punish ment on God-smitten conscience*. The light of improvement has dispersed the cloods, sn4 the sun of a terener sky shed ita lustre oa the world. No fires kindle around opinioas’ martyrs; no women with clinging arms are dragged to the stake. A law of justice hoe been born into the world and asserts the dig nity of ita birth by the clemency with which it administors the judgments of the law.— The people have felt the glory of ita mission end bow with acquiescence to the riadie** tion of its decrees. In government, too, we find there has brtn # glorious reformation ; the tyranny that has bound gallant nations and trarapfle4 on all their aepirations for freedom, has been Stated to relax ita hold ; collared peers and liveried courtiers have been forced to reoognias the majesty of the people.
