Σελίδα 71 - Secretary as may require immediate attention, a Treasurer, and three Directors. 6. The Directors, Secretaries, and Treasurer, shall constitute the Executive Committee, who shall meet once in each month, and shall have the direction of the funds and operations of the Association. 7. An annual meeting shall be held at such time and place as the Executive Committee shall deem advisable, of which due notice shall be given, and at which officers shall be chosen, reports be made, and any other business...
Σελίδα 39 - ... which extinguishes public virtue, and puts a final period to liberty. Thus the Assyrian empire sunk under the arms of Cyrus with his poor but hardy Persians. The extensive and opulent empire of Persia fell an easy prey to Alexander and a handful of Macedonians. And the Macedonian empire, when enervated by the luxury of Asia, was compelled to receive the yoke of the victorious Romans. The descendants of the heroes, philosophers, orators, and free citizens of Greece are now the slaves of the Grand...
Σελίδα 3 - to ascertain whether those who are able and willing to work, can in general procure employment — what is the effect upon the comfort, happiness and morals of the females who depend on their work for a support, of the low rate of wages paid to that class of society...
Σελίδα 14 - Association is formed for the promotion of the principles of Unitarian Christianity at home and abroad — the support of its worship — the diffusion of biblical, theological and literary knowledge on topics connected with it — and the maintenance of the civil rights and interests of its professors.
Σελίδα 11 - ... source of all the blessings of nature, providence and grace, in whose infinite wisdom, goodness, mercy, benevolence, and love has originated all the moral dispensations to man.
Σελίδα 3 - ... whose institutions, of every character and name, rest on the will of the people; and whose only true greatness, and security, and happiness, is in the intelligence and virtue of the people. The truth is, that both political economists and legislators, have too generally looked to wealth as the supreme good of a nation; and to the means of increasing wealth, as the means of national greatness and happiness. The working classes have therefore been regarded by them, as is machinery, in relation...
Σελίδα 8 - To my mind, it is as plainly the will of God, that there should be a permanent ministry for the poor of cities, — a distinct ministry for the special purpose of the poor, — as it is that we, who are not poor, should meet together to worship him. This is the sentiment which I now wish to bring before the opulent, the pious and the charitable of our city. There must be a ministry at large for the...
Σελίδα 80 - Christianity,— and they are the life-spring of mv soul, — I do not hesitate, when I find a decided preference for a church of other sentiments than those which I receive, to recommend a connexion with that church to all who express this preference, as a very important means of their improvement and happiness. I find my own views of our religion, indeed, to be very acceptable among the intelligent and serious of the poor. But I feel that a great good has been obtained by every instance in which...
Σελίδα 81 - But he will also see precious fruits of them. Nor, painful as are some of the scenes through which he must pass, and trying as are some of the circumstances that must occur in this ministry, do I believe that there is a department of the sacred office that is either more useful than this ; or, one that will yield greater satisfa'o tions, than will be found by him who heartily engages in it.
Σελίδα 79 - ... have them, the regenerating instructions and excitements, the supports and consolations of our religion ; I would ask, is our worship, or are our offerings to God in our churches what they should be, while we are there blessing him for that dispensation of his grace and truth which he has given to us by his Son, which, however, we are ourselves withholding from multitudes, who can receive them only through our christian sympathy and benevolence...
