Before the Thirteenth Regiment N G S N Y My Sword Shall be Bathed in His Text to TUB N Y June 1 T this evening the annual sermon before the Thirteenth merit in the Academy of Music The stnil officers and members of the regiment were immediately in front of tho and their friends thronged tho galleries The hymn sung was tho national My country tis of theo Sweet land of liberty The subject of tho sermon The Ita Mission and Its Doom Tho text Isaiah xxxiv My sword shall bo bathed in heaven Three hundred and fifty-one times docs tho Bible speak of that sharp keen curved inexorable weapon which flashes upon us from the text the sword Sometimes the mention is and sometimes damnatory sometimes as drawn oo sheathed In the Bible and in much secular literature tho sword represents all javelins nil carbines all guns all police clubs nil battle axes all weaponry for physical defense or attack It would be an interesting thins to the history of the Plow find follow its furrow all down through tho from the first crop in to tho last crop in Minnesota It would bo interesting to follow the Pen as it has trucked its way on down through the literature of nations from its first word in the first book to tho lust word which some author last wrote as ho closed his It would bo an interesting thing to count tho echoes of tho Hammer from tho nail driven down through all the mechanism of centuries to the last stroke in the carpenter's shop yesterday But in this my sermon as chaplain of tho Thirteenth rudiment I propose ing up a weapon that has done n work that neither Plow uor Pen nor Hammer ever accomplished My theme is the sword its mission and its doom A OF The sword of the text was bathed in heaven that ia it was a sword of as mother sword may bo bathed in hell and the sword of cruelty and wrong Thero is a great difference be- tween the sword of and tho sword between tho sword of Leonidos and the sword of Benedict Ar- nold In our effort to hasten tho end of war wo have hung tho sword with abuses and execrations when it has had a mission and when in many crises of tho world's history it has swung for liberty and justice civilization and righteousness and God At the very opening of the Bible and on the oast side of the Garden of Eden God placed a flaming sword to defend the tree of lifu Of the officer of the law St Paul Ho not tho sword in vain Through Moses God Put every man his sword by his side David iu his prayer Gird thy sword upon thy thigh O most mighty Ono of the old battle shouts of the Old Testament was The sword of the Lord and of eon Christ in a great exigency said that such a weapon was more important than a coat for he He that hath no sword let him sell his and buy one Again he I come not to send peace but a Of Christ's ond coining it is Out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword Thus sometimes figuratively but ally the dirino mission of the sword is an- What more consecrated thing in the world than Joshua's sword or Caleb's sword or Gideon's sword or David's sword or Washington's sword or Marion's sword or Lafayette's sword or ton's sword or Kosciusko's sword or Gar- sword or hundreds of thousands of American swords that have again and again been bathed iu heaven Swords of that kind have tho best friends of tho human race They have slain tyrannies pried open dungeons and cleared tho way tor nations in their march upward It was better for them to tako tho sword and be free than lie under the oppressor's heel and suffer Thero is something worse than death and that is fife if it must cringe and crouch before the wrong Turn over the leaves of the world's history and find that there has never been a stopped or a nation liberated except by the sword I am not talking to you about the way ought to be but about tho way they mvo been What force drove back tho Saracens it Tours and kept Europe from jeing overwhelmed by Mohammedanism and subsequently all America given over o Mohammedanism The sword of Charles and his men Who can deal enough n infinities to tell was accomplished or the world's good by tho sword of Joan of In December last I looked oft and saw in the distance the battlefield of Marathon and I asked myself what was it that on that most tremendous day in history stopped tho Persian hosts representing not only Persia but Egypt and Tripoli and Afghanistan and and Ar- menia a host that had Asia under foot and proposed to put Europe under foot and if successful in that battle would have submerged by Asiatic barbarism European civilization and us a in after time American The swords of Miltiades and Themistocles and Aristides At tho waving of these swords the eleven thousand lancers of Athens on tho run dashed against the one hundred thousand insolent Persians and them down or pushed them back into the sea The sword of that day saved the best part of the hemispheres a trinity of keen steel flashing in the two lights he light of the setting sun of barbarism light of the rising sun of civilization Hail to these three great swords bathed in TUB WORK FOB GOOD What put an end to infamous Louis plan of universal conquest by which England would have been made to kneel on tho steps of tho Tuileries and the Anglo-Saxon race would have been halted and all Europe The of Marlborough at Blenheim Time came when tho Roman war eagles whose beaks had been punched into the hearts of tions must be brought down fiom their eyries All other attempts had fully failed but the Germans the mightiest nation for brawn and brain undertook the work and under God succeeded What back tho Roman cavalry till the dorses wounded flung their riders and the last rider perished arid the forest became the scene of Rome's The sword the bravo sword the triumphant sword of Arminius While through ary my nerves tingled with excitement and I roue in the car the better to see the of Chalons the mounds and works still visible though nearly five dred years ago they were shoveled up Here the heathen monster called by himself the Scourge of God for the punishment of his life a sacre oi nations came to ignominious de- feat and he put into one great pile the wooden saddles of his cavalry and tho spoils of tho cities and kingdoms he had sacked and placed on top of this holocaust the women who had accompanied him In bis devastating march ordering that the torch be put to the pile What power bioko that sword and stayed that red scourge of cruelty that was rolling over Tho sword of Theodoric THE INDEPENDENCE OF TBB UNITED STATES To come down to ages all gent Englishmen unite with all intelligent runs tuo thing colonies swung off from Britain It would been the worst absurdity oS years if iMs continent should have continued in loyalty to u throne on tho other sido of tho No would pose a governor for tho States as thero h i general for Canada We queens in our American capital could hardly bo brought to support a queen on tho other side of the and good as Victoria ia The only uso wo have for carls and lords and dukes in thin country is to treat them well when they pass through to their hunting grounds in tho far west or when their fortunes have failed them by wealthy monial alliance Im rino his nation yet a port of English Tho trouble the mother country has today with Ireland would bo a paradisaic condition compared with tho trouble she would have with us England and the United States mako excellent neighbors but tho two families aro too largo to live in the same house What a godsend that we should have parted and parted long ago I But I can think of no other way iu which wo could have possibly achieved American independence George III tho half crazy king would not have let us go Lord North his prime minister would not have let UH go Gen Lord wallis would not have lot us go although after Yorktown iie wan glad enough to have us lot him go Lexington and ker Hill and and Trenton and Valley Forgo were proofs positive that they were not willing to let us go Any committee of Americans going across tho ocean to soy what could havo been douo would have found no better tions than London Tower Tho only way it could have bean done was by tho sword your sword son's pen could write the Declaration of Independence but only Washington's sword could have achieved it and the other swords bathed in IT IS A SWORD So now the sword has ils uson although it is n sheathed sword There is not an armory iu Brooklyn or New York or Philadelphia or Chicago or Charleston or New Orleans or any American city that could be spared We have in all our can cities a ruffian population who though they are small in number with tho good population would again and again mako rough and stormy times if back of our mayors and common councils and police there were not in the armories and arsenals some keen steel which if brought into play would make quick work with mobocracy There aro in every great community unprincipled men who like u row on n largo scale and they heat themselves with sour mash and old rye and other decoctions enriched with blue vitriol turpentine sugar of lead sulphuric acid logwood strychnine night and other precious ingredients and take down a glass with n re- sounding of satisfaction When they get that stuff in them and Ihu blue vitriol collides with tho potash and the turpentine with the sulphuric acid t he tims are ready for anything but and decency and good government Again and again iu our American cities has tho of home been demonstrated You remember how when the soldiers were all away t'i the war in what conflagrations kindled in the streets of New York antl negroes were hung Some of you remember the great riots in Philadelphia at fires sometimes just for the opportunity of uproar and de- spoliation In a ut i theatre would havo resulted in New fork city not been for the soldiery of insult which the American had re- in En from the of Mr Macready the English actor when the ter appeared in New York in Macbeth the distinguished Englishman was hissed and mobbed tho walls of the city having been placarded with tho Shall Americans or English rulo in this Streets were filled with a crowd insane with passion The

disband WILL TAKE ITS Arbitrament will take tho place of war between nation arid nation and national armies will disband as a consequence and ths time will hasten there will be no need of an American army or navy or a Russian army or navy But some time after that cities will have to keep their armories arid arsenals and well drilled militia because until the millennial day there will be populations with whom arbitrament will bo as impossible as treaty with u cavern of hyenas or a jungle ut snakes Those men who rob stores and hug and prowl about the wharves at midnight and the dice in

the sword be kept free from rust sharp all along tbo edge and its point like a needle and the handle polished not only by the chamois of the regimental ant but by tho hand of brave and patriotic officers always ready to do their full duty Such swords are not bathed in ty or bathed in cruelty or bathed in op- pression or bathed in outrage but bathed in heaven Before I speak of the doom of tho sword lot me also say that it has developed the grandest natures that the world ever saw It has developed sublime energy of the which defies tho uni- verse when it feels i to be in tho right It has developed a self sacrifice which re- the idea our life ia worth more than anything else when for a ciple it throws that life away as much as to It is not necessary that I live but it is necessary that
