The speaker took for his test the 23d verse of the 23rd chapter of Numbers: "Surely there isno enchantment ni^itinsl Jal cob, ncitl/cr is there atiy division «gainst Isra-  clr accordlng'to Ihl« tlttie U slw^^  cob and of liirael. What hath OoJ wrougiit ? " After adverting to the circumstances which gave rise to the words of the (ext, and impressing upon his hear-ors the great truth that the hand of God is to biß recognized in every event, the speaker passed on to show how his protecting care had been displayed in the escape of our Republic from the recent conspiracy against its existence. It was a Conspiracy in which we were banded not only the powers of treason at home, under the direction of the men to whom the nation had entrusted the administration of its affairs, but the Mnipathizing Governments of the O'd World. The whole power of Western Europe was arraj'ed on the side of the rebels against us, forming a combination which,.from a human standpoint it would have seemed impossible to resist, and our deliverance was as clearly througli Divine interposition as that of the Hebrews IVom Egyptian Ixjiicl-age.» Such interposition had marked  ery, fontt'ci in' An empire secured .to freedbmiifthe-^ Nortliwest. "He next glanjjcd at the- progress of-population and iulcrnal improvmunt over tlite new Stated of the West, clearly «hoVr-ingr how tfife hand of God had been displayed in si) directing this progress as  of New  England ideas over this vast region, Gaihqunhaid planned a system'of l^ail-ways which,- combined with the natural water courses of the country, were to bVing all the i/ioducts of thie \Yest and Northwest to the Southern coant, thus bringing tliat fegion into commercial relatio^is, and through these, into'piditical and social syrapa-  ^atiffcti^me yvas de^te^ it^^ J^^ ■cause Gild's ph  great West with the Northeast Hi^ plan co^fomided all hunitin wi^icPfim.

Ò'ur efforts to evade it were all in vain. They were delivored, they were cm-ployed in our armies, and wero < xcept-èd as our allies.

The antagonistic powtra of national life were planted here a't the eettle-nient of the ci)nntry—one at Flyinouth and olie in Virginia. Wo are accustomed to say that one waa freedom and the other slavery-—and tiiat is true ; but this is a mere surface-view of the case. If \ve connect (»ur iiittional his» tory with the progress of Christ's kingdom, we must look <leeper than thi«, and recognize the trutli that one was based on the central idea of heathen-isni and the other on the pi^'nciple of t.)e go.s|)cl The. cenlraj printîiple of every linni of iioatheiiisni was the oppression of ihe masspH fi»r the benefit of the few, scorn of hiiinanify, and the d<'gradati()n of man. The Gospel, on tiie other hand, knows man simply as man—invests him with all the rights and privileges which belong to him under the Divine law.of justice. It seeks toedticate, refine, and elevate hnmani-y, recugiiizing the race as one broth-eiliDod under God, the Fatiier of all.  One system sought wealth and the co icentration of material and political power in the hands of the few by degrading the people and enslaving the aborer The other System Ronght all the blessings of true civilization by applying the principles of the gospel to all the movements of society and educating and elevating the whole popiila lation. While these two systerns have been permitted to.grow side by side, exhibiting to the world the peculiarities of each, God hits, by the workings of his Providence has settled purpose to give the control of this continent to ttie Northern life, and swepj; away that Southern system, which in its central idea reproduces the ancient heathenism.  The speaker here alluded to recent attempts to phow that Masaachu.setts was as much of a slave state as Vir-j^ina, and drew a' fi)rcibl.i conti ast between the. two States, «howing that while the form of slavery maintained a languishing existence in the one, it was then the result of temporary circumstances and soon peri.slied in the face of a spirit incompatible with its perpetuity; w^liereas In the other it was t'le natural outgrowtli ot the spirit and tiie, ideas which permeated it  Fr )m the first, the Northern life, the working to constrtict society according to the principles of the Gospel, showed a vigor and expansive power which alarmed the enen»it^-of civil aad religious • freedom. Two mighty efforts have been made to prevent its spread, and to shut it up between the Allegha nies and the Atlantic, while the South and the gretit Mississippi valley should be held by. the enemies of progress and of liberty. I„n the defeat ot these ëf forts the hand of God is plainly visible Tho first was made by Catholic France, and, had it succeeded, would have hem mç'd in the Puritans and confined» them, with their ideas of civil and religious liberty, to the Atlantic coast Every lincknti^s hnw, wiilrheV misî^ta-ftA' uttd her military posts, she had- drawn chain across the continent extending from the month of the St. Lawience to the month of the Missisnippii and how her dufeat on the plains- of Abraham  all its commerce aWay from the South, and bound to the East by kindred, by literattirej reaigion, common sympathies and like liberal ideas. How was all this brought about ? God was prepar ing for the rebellion. He was stationing Ilis forces and forming his line of battle. .' And when a PreBidimt was wiinted to speak the word that should em incipate the bondmen, he was found  1 n ti » e Ño r t h we st j-v4ieíi-v+»t wo^ vjiaiu- ^hâtrirneTrcH^ fall:  manity, is to triumph now. We will not believe that a cause wTiicU God frowned npon and checked and, bafHttd for two hundred years, atid which he «o^lately crushed'on the battfe i^^tiy^ia to win the victory VVlien Satan  had for two centuries tried every foi'iW of hellish cnchantmeht ag'.iiniit ifie hosts of the free.iiortli, let us not believe tliat he can iiot concoct a new spell in the whicli cauldron cf party polities which can biiille our loyal millions and prevail against truth and ustice, which can overthrow the church and pluck down the banner of Christ. The prophets sent for to curse the \merican Israel will see all their en-.  gère tlie great Wear PríU&Hfaiit Kn|flaT)d and «ipened it to the estîithlish' ment of the_ProtesUitt chorch and of  freo institutions- , ■  . Revolutionary, war and the man-ifeit purposes of God iirdeliveriiijg'tlie cyloniet f^rom tho douiiuion of England were next glanced at The speaker theuahowed' how the Missouri poui-promiae, frtmed as a concession toalt^v  ted to elect him, they were ready there, and when soldiers were need to defend the flag of freedom, the stream of men came pouiing down froij the Northwest like the broad fldod of the Mississippi. _________  The Mexican war and t'iie repeal of the Missouri compromise wore successively considered by tlie_ i^)eaker, and it was shown that, although undertaken in the interest of slavery, both had in the hands of God eontfibtited to the advanCenuMit of friiedom. iCansas was the Gettysburg of the Soi th in her political battles. Then she resorted to rebellion, and by it lost- all. Against all opposition the victory Won, and God at length gave politicil and territorial control to the Northern system, that is, to freedom.  The speaker then asked, what indications lias God given uh of the kind ol Government He would have'established, now that he has delivered us from the dangers of civil war ? II« has shown us, fiist, that he wouUI have a nation, and not a confederacy, - or any fot m of goverïimèjit Tviilîoxit a central controlling poWer sufflcieut to niaintain security, order, and law. The South began with the assertion- of the independence of the States of the national government.,^ proceeded to nullification, and, as a natural sequence of tho State lights' doctrine, ended with treason and rebellion. Second, God has shown us that He" would havo a free KaTIon. Tin' indicatlon$«f this were traced at length through our^ past hiií^^ry- Gud had itted nt) compromise which, would save slavery alive In the late war but «me path had been opened to us, iind whenever the nation turned aside from this it met God's flaming sword to turn it back, Evi'ry other path was slippery with blood, heaped with corp nes and dark witli tliG frowñ ff God, or lighted only by the glare of battle. The only path we found open was that of freedom and equal justice to all God has been teaching us that he is a God of retributive justice, and that he will vindicate, at whatever cost to man jtigtiçe^ truth and law. The law of ret rlbution was ilTùsfralë^d by "^he physi cal law that action and reaction are equal—that the return blow is exactly equal to the blow given. The same law in the moral World demands that every wroUg be rendered Jiack jto the wrong doer; and from this law there i no escape, except when the atonement interposés The atonement does not avail for nations, and therefore to nation absolute justice must be doiie rendering back to the wrong-doer ex aclly according to the wrong done.—  by showing that in the fires of civil 'war God had punished the nation f(»r tfie siuof slavery,exacting a full equivalent in blood, in treasure, and it snf-^ feriiig for -every wrong done to' tííe^ slave in centuries of oppression injustice. _ 1  And 'now,lafte,r all that has bee»  WHOLf NOi 1514^  have 00 more voice iu making the laws by wlrîéh ifitj;^ are 'gö«^rned,~or In  .Owr wpua^ tit ntopUit, ,On» cquaitr «ne year, ' , i. ; lOM-ftiinU'e^lIaMiAIMrf*««: , Oaa-halfd'tlttmnnnDj'ear,  Dm eoltraiii «utLjrtaf, . - Wii^i^  roartMa if*«« ot Ut* CMatUtat«*:» mißtmi^'  ' MtHKss um ám itUí mnwiL^l  cakm tha llhiunma ulühtoi*. miainmîiïag i  ■ i^-at, t^jc««.

We stand at the very point at which lines of God's providence, for two hundred years, converge. One ^tily remains to be done to finish the work of political redemption—to declare "that rio man in this land sìiaiÌ be disfranchised on account of race and color. And who can dotibt that this last crowning act of justice will be speedily done? Who can doubt this who will consider that it ia a necessary result of all the linked providences of God that have marked the progress of our nation, not )rgefting that which is one of the most significant, the bringing together here of a body of men, who, against audi an Dfipnsition 4iH--w.as- never ar-ayed against a Congress before, neither baffled, nor awed, nor seduced, have moved right on to the acctmiplish-mentof their great purpose as if inspired from on High, and supporled by a power beyond their own? I think that any Oliriatiasi stiuidino: in one the Other of these halls in the grand crisis points of the session UiUst haVe lelt, surely these mines are moving under the direction of the Holy Spirit; surly God is,here. It was feélÌiig far deeper than springs from party triumph; it Was enthusiasm for right; it was syrhpathy with Christ. Who can doubt the result wben every great measure adoptqil by this body has limed at giving and securing eqiial rights to all? Each step was designed to secure the crowning act, the means if making the consumation sure; and the bestowal of the ballot is the logical and necessary result of the' whole.  catmot defeat it nor much longerjlelay If we need any fither encoUr^ig^ent let U3 glance at the array of this battle On the one stdo are the soldiers who fought oui^ battles, the Icyal millions who sustained them, the Church, and at the head is Christ, the leader of the captain of his salvation. On the otlier side—bnt it is not necessary to name I hem. On the one side are tho s'-ldiers, the loyal million, the churches, with Christ for iheit" leader; on the other -re-all the rest Will that prosper [or which no pra^^^^^^^ of which  no Clirjstian says, 'il bless thee in the name of the Lord," and to whiph Christ Himscy^f ¡B opposed? ' The question itiswered in the asking, Have faith in God, and men now old will live to see the day when the jubilee, shout of liberty and Union perfected shall "sweep over the coiitinent, and when the crowning act of justice shall be followed by peace to the nation and the unrestricted blessing of God.
