Wasumi Stox May 10.�?never was n timelier or were appropriate Sermon than that preached by i v. Or. Talmage this morning. The subject was Quot before they adjourn Quot having reference to the Early dissolution of Ern Gross and Trio text selected was psalms of 22, Quot Aud Tench his senators senators in this text stand for lawmakers. Joseph win the lord treasurer of Tho egyptian government Aud among other great tilings which he did a to riling to my text was to Tench Liia senators Wisdom. Aud if any men on Earth ought to to endowed with Wisdom it is senators whether they stand in congresses parliaments or retch tags or assemblies or Legislatures. By their decisions mamas go up or Down. Lawmakers Are sometimes so tempted by prejudices by sectional preferences by Opportunity of personal advancement and some times what is Best to do is so doubtful that they ought to by prayed for and encourage in in every possible Way instead of severely criticised and blamed and excoriated As in much of Tho time Tom Case. Stir Public men Uro so often the target to be shot at merely because they obtain Eminence which other men wanted but could not reach that Mere injustices Are hurled at our National Hui Laturo i ban Trio people of the United Buttes can possibly imagine. The wholesale belying if our Public a men is simply Damnable. By res ii leu in Washington i Imre Eaton to find out that Many of our Public men arc persistently misrepresented and s. Me of the tes t it i them the purest in their Liv. S and most faithful in Tho discharge i f their duties tire the worst Defaun d. Someday i Waul to preach a ser Mou from the text in ii Peter a they Are not to speak evil of dignities. Whereas Angels Are Grater in Power and might not railing i cessation Atiim to them before Tho land. But these s natural brute beasts made to be Tain n Anil h Biroy Eil speak evil if like things that tiny understand . It constant and malignant is this work. F in regard to eur Mablie nit u that All Over t Inland there Uro those who Suppi be that the City of Wasin Uptou is the Center of All corruption while Liat with its Parks Anil is Ione Striate statuary Aud its wide streets and its architectural so mini tries Anil its Lovely Homes it is not Only Tho most Beautiful City under the Sun but has tin highest style of citizenship. I have seen but one intoxicated Man in the More than six Mouths of my residence and i do not think any Man can give similar testimony of Init other City on the american continent. Code a Nanto in Tho Constitution. The gavels of our two houses of National Logie Luttre will soon fall and adjournment i f two Lii Dils of men As tul muted As upright Aud As patriotic us Ever to capital will take place. The two or three unfortunate outbreaks which j a i leave m timid Only make Moro conspicuous Tho align ii the Fraier Ity Tho eloquence the Fidelity which have Cha act Tiz d these two bodies during All the Long months of in it Octant a Mil and ions deliberation. We put a Halo around great men of the past because they wire so rare in their time. Our Senate and House of representatives have five such men where Iii Ethry had one. But it will not be until Mufti r they Are dead that they will got appreciated. The world Finis it safer to Praise the dead than Tho living by cause the departed having a heavy pile of Marble above them May not Rise to become rivals. But before the gavels of adjournment drop and the doors of Capitol Hill shut there Aro one or two things that ought to be done mud let us Pray god that they May be accomplished. More forcibly than Ever before Congress has been implored to acknowledge god in our Constitution. The methodist Church a Church that is always doing glorious things Luns in ils recent Wilmington conference requested our Congress to Amend the injun rial document which has been Tho foundation and Wall and Dot no of our United states government by inserting the words Quot trusting in a1 mighty if that amendment is , it will not Only please nil the Good pet pie of Trio country but will please the heaven. It was Only an oversight or a mental Accident that the fails is who made the Constitution did not insert a divinely worshipful sentence. They ail so far As they amounted to anything believed in Quot god the father almighty Tho maker of heaven and Earth and in Jesus Christ his Only Begotten the Constitution would have been a failure had it not been for the divine interference. The members of Tho convention could agree on nothing until in response to Benjamin Franklin s Ruquist that the meetings to opened by prayer the lord god was idled on to iut Chicre and help and then the Way was cleared and All the states signal the document a historical fact that All Tho rat terrier of modern infidelity cannot bark out of existence. I know that tilde was a i exception to the fact that Trio prominent men in those times were Good men. Tom a Ulvi mid i Luna Allen. Tom , n libertine and a Sot did not belie a in anything Good until to was dying Aud then he shrieked out for god so mercy. And Eulum Allen from one of whose ii Iid ants i have received within a few Days a confirmation of the incident i mentioned in a recent Sermon As saying to his dying daughter that she Bud 1 tier take her Mother s Christian religion Tim his own infidelity. The article sent to sr. Quot the Story has been denied by some of Tho Allen family but the Bronson family some of in were with the dying girl affirm that it is substantially True ill such a matter one confirmation is Worth Moro than Many so says the Artiel Cut me. There is no doubt that Ethan alien was Tho vulgar est sort of an infidel for sitting in a Church his admirers say he struck the Pew in front of him and swore out loud so As Todi stub the mooting and no gentleman would do that. 1 do not wonder that some of his descendants Are ashamed of him but of course they could not help it and Are not to blame. But All the decent men of the revolution be lie veil in god acid our american Congress now assembled will Only Echo Tho sentiments of Trio fathers when they in throne the Nam Cut god in the Constitution. We love now More reason for inserting that Neki of lodgement of divinity Tului fathers had. Since then Trio front input has Hien peopled Aud great cities from the Atlantic to the Pacific built and All in Pence showing that there most have Hern supernal super Visal since then the War of 1812, and ours the Victory i since then great financial prostrations out of which to came to greater in sch Rity than anything that preceded. Since then sanguinary 18u2, 1803, 18c4 Anil 1805, and ing the fact that All the foreign despotism were planning for on demolition to in a a Unitas people and tomorrow you will find in both houses of Congress the men who fought for Trio North and Tom South now sitting Side by Side aimed with no weapon except Tho pen with which they write Homo to their constituents who want to be appointed postmasters. The Man who cannot Seo Gist in our american history is As Blind of soul As he would be Blind of body if lie could nut at 12 of clock of an unclouded noon sic the san in Tho Hovius. As a matter of gratitude to almighty god gentlemen of the american Congress be phased to insert the four words suggest d by the methodist conference. Not Only because of the kindness of go Ltd to this nation in tie past should such reverential insertion be made hut became of the fact that we arc going to want divine inter Osit Ioa still further in our National his cry. This Geld and Silver question will m Var be settled until god st tries it. This question of Tariff nil free Trade will novt r by settled until mud soil its it. This question Between the East mid the West which is getting hotter Anil hotter Aud looks toward a Republic of he Pacific will not be settled until did settles it. To needed god 111 the 120 years of on past Uati Unal life and Ewill mid him still More in the next 120 years. Lift up Yeier Heads be everlasting Gates of our glorious consult ii ii mud let the King of glory come in make one line of that immortal document Radiant with omnipotence Sis in at least one weird with thrones at the beginning or at the close or in the Center recognize him from win m us a nation we have received All the blessings of the past and us in whom it Ore dependent for the future. Print that word Quot god Quot 1 r Quot lord Quot or Quot Ete Ruul father Quot or Quot Haler of nations Quot somewhere Bot Wien the first word Aud the last. The gnat expounded of Tho Constitution ships at Marshfield mass. The Atlantic dec Etui still humming near his Pillow of dust its prolonged Lullaby. But is there not some duo now living who in the White Marble Palace of the nation of Youder Hill not ten minutes away will become the Irradiator of the Constitution by causing to be added the Mast tremendous word of our English vocabulary the numb of that living before whom All nations must Bon or go into defeat Aud annihilation a god a Churchi and Sintz. Aguin before approaching adjournment of our american Congress it ought to be decidedly and forever settled that no appropriations to made to sectarian schools at a that the courtship Between Church mid state in this country be forever broken up. That question already seems Temponi ily settled. I wish it might be completely Aud forever settled. All schools and All in a Sti Tut ions As Well As All denominations should stand of the same level before american Law. Emperor Alexander of Russia at his Peter huf Palace asked me How Many denominations of religion there were in America and i recited their names As Well As i Coulib then he asked Ino the difference Between them Aud there i broke Down. But when i told him that 110 religious denomination in America had any privileges above the others to could hardly understand it. The greek Church first in Russia the lutheran Church first in Germany the episcopal Church first in England the Catholic Church first in Rome i Hanunm danish first in constantinople the emperor wondered How it was possible that All Tho denominations in America could stand on the same platform. But so it is Aud so let it Ever lie. Let there be no preference 110 partiality. 110 attempt to help one sect ii Inch higher than another. Washington and Jefferson and All the Early presidents Aud All the great statesmen of the past have lifted their voices against any such tendency. If a school or an institution cannot stand without the prop of National appropriation then let that school or that institution go Down. Of the other Side of the sea the world Lias had plenty of illustration of Hureh and state United. Let us have none of the hypocrisy and demoralization born of that relation on this Side of the Atlantic. Let that i Unin a nation come out ahead that does the most for the cause of god and immunity men institutions and religious getting what they a Chiec by their own right Arm of usefulness and not by the favouritism of government. As you regard the welfare and perpetuity of our institutions keep polities out of religion. National convention. But now that i am a peking of National affairs from a religious standpoint i Bethink myself of the fact that two other govt is will soon lilt and fall the one at tit. Louis and the Ether at Chicago and before those National conventions adjourn i ask that they us Knowli de cd in the plat i ring. The. Men who canst act those platforms Are hero this morning or will read these words. Let no political party think it can do its duty unless it acknowledges that cd built this Cut input and revealed it it the right time to the discoverer and who has reared Here a Prosperity which has been Given to no other people. A ooh a says some one a there Are people in this country who do not believe in a god and it would be an insult to them.1 Well there Are people in this country who do not believe in common Dice Ivy or common honesty or any kind of government preferring anarchy. Your vorp form is an insult to them. You ought Udo to regard a Man who docs not believe in god any Mere than you should regard a Man who refuses to believe in common decency. Your pocket Book is not Safe a moment in the presence of an atheist god is the Only source of Good government. Why not then say so and let the chairman of the committee of resolutions in your National conventions take a pen full of Ink and with bold baud Bead the document with one significant a Whytas a goodness of Gud in the past Aud a bogging his kindness und Protection for the future. Why my friends this country belongs to god mud to ought in every possible Way to acknowledge it from the moment that on an october morning in 1402, Columbus looked Over the Side of Tho ship Anil saw the carved staff which made him think he was near an inhabited country and saw also a Thorn and u Cluster of berries Type of our history Ever since Tho piercing sorrows Aud Cluster of National Joy until this hour our country has been bounded of the North South cast and West by Tho goodness of god. The Huguenots took Possession of the Carolinas in the name of god. William Penn settled Philadelphia in the name of god. The hollanders took Possession of new York in the name of god. The Pilgrim fathers settled new England in Tho name of god. Preceding the first gun of Bunker Hill at Tho voice of prayer Ull Heads uncovered. In Tho War of 1812 an officer came to general Andrew Jackson and said Quot there is an unusual noise in the Camp. It ought to be stopped. A general Jackson said 1 what is the noise a the officer said Quot it is Tho voice of prayer Anil then the general said Quot god forbid that prayer and Praise should to an unusual noise in the Encampment. You had better go and join prayer at Valley forgo. Prayer at Monmouth. Prayer at Atlanta. Prayer at South Mountain. Prayer at Gettysburg. A ooh Quot says some infidel Quot the Northern people prayed of one Side the the Southern people prayed on the other Side and so it did not amount to anything a Anil i have heard Good Chris Tau people confounded with Jhc infidel statement when it it us Plain it to me As my right hand. Yes the Northern people prayed in one Way and the Southern people prayed in Uno Lher Way and cd answered in Liis own Way giving to Trio North the re establish meet of the government Aud giving to the South larger opportunities larger than she Bod Ever anticipated the harnessing of her Rivers in got manufacturing interests until the motile and the Tallapoosa and the Are Southern Mer Rimcus and Trio unrolling of great Southern mines of Coal and Iron of which the world knew nothing and opening before her opportunities of wealth Whiteb will give 00 per cent Mere of affluence than she Ever possessed and instead of the Black bands of air can slaves there Are Tho More industrious Black hands of the real and Iron mines 1 f the South which Are achieving for her fabulous Aud unimagined wealth. And there Are domes of Whito blossoms where spread Tho Whito touts. And to into Are plows in Tho track whore the War wagons wont Aud there Are nouns where they lifted up a hol lament. Llo Colu. Prayer. Oil you Are a stupid Matt if you do not understand How god answered Abraham Lincoln sprayer in the White House and Stonewall Jackson s prayer in the faille and answered All the Pray cry Cfall Tho cathedrals of both sides of Mason and Dixon a line gods country All the Way past god s country now put his name in your prone Lucia Mutos. Put his name 011 your ensigns put his Namo on your City Aud state and National enterprises put his name in your hearts. To cannot sleep Well the last sleep until we Are assured that Tho Gud of our american institutions in the Pust will be the god of our american institutions in the Days that Are to come. Of when All the Rivers t hat empty into Atlantic and Pacific seas shall pull on factory bands when All the great mines of Gold and Silver and Iron and Coal shall be Laid Bare for the nation when the last swamp shall be reclaimed und the last Jungle cleared and Tho last american desert Eden cd Aud from sea to sea the continent shall be occupied by More than 1,200,000,000 souls May it be found that moral and religious influences were multiplied in More rapid ratio than the population Aud then there shall be four do ologies coming from North Anil South Aud East and West four do ologies rolling toward each other Aud meeting Micou Tinct with such dash of holy Joy that they shall mount to the throne and Hent no a Arch resound again with peace on Eurth Good will to men. I take a step farther and say that before the gavels of our Senate and House of representatives and our political conventions Pound adjournment there ought to be passed a Law or adopted a Plank of intelligent helpfulness for the great foreign populations which arc coming among us. It is too late now to discuss whether we had better let them comp. They Are Here. They Are coming this moment through the Narrows. They Are this moment taking Tho first full inhalation of the free air of America. And they will continue to come us Long As this country is the Best place to live in. You might As Well pass a Law prohibiting summer Beis from alighting of a Field of blossoming buckwheat you might As Well prohibit the Stags of the mountains from coming Down to the Deer Liek As to prohibit the hunger bitten nations of Europe from coming to this land of bread As to prohibit Tho people of England Ireland Scotland Italy Norway Sweden und Germany working themselves to death on Small wages of the other Side the sea from coming to this land where there Are Trio largest compensations under the Sun. Why did god spread out the Prairies of the Dakotas and Roll the precious Ere into Colorado it was that All the Earth might come and plow and come and dig. Just As Long is the centrifugal Force of foreign despotism throws them off just so Long will the centripetal of co of american institutions draw them Here. And that is what is going to make this Tho mightiest nation on the Earth. Intermarriage of nationalities not Circle inter marrying Circle and nation inter marrying Dation. But it is going to be italian Aud norwegian russian and Celt scotch and French English and american. Greatest nations of the age. The american of 100 Yeara from now is to be different from the american of today. German brain Irish wit French civility scotch firmness English loyalty italian aesthetics packed into one Man and he an american it is this intermarriage of nationalities that is going to Mako the american nation the greatest nation of the Ages. But what ure we doing for the moral and intellectual culture Ollie 500,000 foreigners who came in one year and Tho 600,000 who came in another year and the 800,000 who came in another your and the. 1,000,000 who Are coming into our various american ports int Are we doing for them Well we Are doing a great Deal for them. We steal their Bagg Ege i soon As they get litre. To Send them up to n boarding House where the Liast they lose is their Money. We swindle them within tin minutes after they get ashore. We Are duing a great Deul for Tim. But what Are to doing to introduce them into Tho duties of Good cilia Mohip Many of them never saw a ballot Box. Many of them never heard of the of Tho United Stales. Many if them no with our Laws. Now i say let the government of the United states so commanded by Cue political party or both political parties give to every immigrant who lands Here a volume in Good Type and Well bound for Long usage a a volume containing the declaration of Independence the Constitution of the United states and a chapter of the spirit of on i Hemment let there be such u Bookou the shelf every free Library in american. While the american Bible society puts into the right hand of every immigrant a copy of the holy scriptures let the government of the United states commanded by Somo political party put into Trio loft hand of every immigrant a volume instructing him in the duties of Good citizenship. There Are thousands of fori signers in this land who need to learn that the Ballet Box is not a Footstool but 11 throne not something to put your foot of hut something to been before. Christ my put riot Lam. But whether members of the National legislature or delegates to one of the National conventions or private citizens let us cultivate Christian patriotism. Of How Good god Lias been to us As a nation just open the map of tie continent Anel Sec How it is so Peel fur immeasurable Prosperi ties. Navigable Rivers More in number an greater than i any Uthi Planel rolling Down c i All Side s into the sea prophesying Large manufactories and easy Commerce. Look at the great ranges of mountains Tim bore d with wealth on Tho top Aud sides Aud metalled with wealth underneath. One Hundred and eighty thousand Square mics of Coal one Hundred and eighty thousand sep inc Miles of Uruu the Iron to pry out the Coal. The Coal to forge Anel so Elt the Iron.

The people of the United states me happier than Uny people on Earth. It is the testimony of every Man that has travelled abroad. For Tho poor More sympathy fur the industrious More Opportunity of How Gricel god was to our fathers mid How Good Goel has by to to us mid our children to him blk sold to his glorious name to him of Cross and Triumph be consecrated Tho United states of America tin re arc three great reasons Why you Anel i scald do our Best for this country three great reasons our fathers Quot Graves 1 or Cradle our children a Birthright. When i say your fathers Graves your s run quickly. Whether they sleep in City cemetery or country graveyard their dust is very precious to you. I think they lived Well Aud that they diesel right. Never submit to have any government Over their tombs other than that government under which they lived and died. Aud then this country is our Cradle. It May have rocked us very roughly but it was r. Good Cradle to be inked in. Of How much we owe to it our boyhood and girlhood it was spent in this Blisse a country. Imper have any patience with a Man who talks against this country.
