To gentlemen occupying tbe distinguished positions of members of the two most important committeesof the House of Representatives of the United States, aswell as to those who accompany them, the authorities ofPhiladelphia tender the city's hospitalities, with theearnest hope that tbey will be liberally accepted by them.'W hen I think of the purposes of your visit, and of theoriginal causes which led to it, my mind naturally Roesback to the days when the greatest event of the civilizedworld taok place when tho Colonies of America, misgoverned and oppressed (as all colonies governed from abroadmust neoesaarily be), determined to become an independent nation and effected their determination in amanntr that- startled an admiring world. Hero,frnntlemen. in this building, in thin vert hall.nearly ninety four yours ago, a few brave hearts aud brightbeads resolved that the United States should be a freeand independent nation, and here it was that this reso u-t on made them such. That great event of the 4th ofInly, 1770, baa since oeen universally celebrated as thebirthday of Freedom and Liberty, and each recurrence oftne day nan neon a national noniiay. we are now apnroaching the first centennial anniversary, and it is suggested that on this spot, at that time, we shall as a nation,as nearly as we can, bring to mind the scenes of '76, whichcannot bs effectually done at any other place here to declare our renewed allegiance to the Union for tbe future,as well as to rejoice in oar mutual gratnlations for tbepast. I trust, gentlemen, that the patriotic spirit of onrsires, the great men of tbe day which required such men,rosy animate ns to nnited action on this subieit, so thatPhiladelphia may t every centennial anniversary showthe spirit that, marked that venerable occasion.

I am satibtiod that Philadelphia has aHistory, not only as a city out on account ot tne associations surrounding us.
