Though the Middle of the week it has the stillness the Sabbath. Never before in this nation waa a ladder Day so Aniver Azaliy of in All the Char Che As this which Hai been set apart for the Panerai services of on late president it is altogether right and proper that Jinder the fol4i�?~ibis a pts ii of urging. This is the representative of this government whose chief magistrate has been stricken Down by the foul hand of the Assassin. Wherever this Flag floats our liberties Are ser �gns., a al Man can be deprived of Hie Lim a for trial by twelve of Bia fellow men. The Hareas Corpus is sacred a except in times of War. And the cases Are rare even in this dreadful War where it has been suspended. It guaranteed to our a fathers that Liberty which was denied them i�tfmi6ld country. And Here they met to won hip god according to the dilutes of a conscience without let or hindrance from Man. Who Oak assign any reason Why the head of this gnat nation should have been a murdered was he not the representative of the people did they not almost unan a so Lect Hiya for the place has not the South lost their Best and can they expect any other Man to be put at the Bead of the government More lenient than he a is disposed to err on mercy s Side do they expect to find a Kinder heart More forgiven Jnita nature to animate the breast it Ltd of any Man that May be at the Bead of the a government if they do they will be a it him a fitted. of our beloved president stands without a parallel in history. Brutus conspired against cd Sar because he thought that the liberties of the roman people were in danger. But Here the rep Resen Oilive of Freedom is smitten. The Friend of the oppressed is stricken Down. There Brutus sacrificed private Friendship for Public Good Here the Public Good a sacrificed to gratify he passions of a Deolion a human form. When Charlotte Corday stabbed Murat in his Bath it was torrid the world of a monster one who Bak caused the Best blood of France in flow n her streets and Crimson her a Man not by tens but by hundreds and Tot ands anarchy had reigned Long a ugh an she was the Humble instrument a Llie has of god of ridding the world a of m infant whose name will be handed Dova Jho posterity along with that of be.

And the last words he uttered before Charlotte Corday plunged the Dagger to Bis heart were a that the deputies of Caen should have the Guillotine a fore they were a week older. Or. Lincoln did not Chiin to for any mans blood he was ild it forgiving Man his enemies being the murder of the phom of Orange Wunkam the 1st, in some respects is a Par a Mcase.

I never could eee Why cd gtd i foreknowledge and Providence Shoal Dwity numb free Agency. Why he permitted oar chief Magis Tafte to be Uken out of the Way i May never be Able to know in this world. No doubt it it we for some Wise purpose. I remember once to have mingled my tears with sorrowing relatives that a beloved father should have been consigned to the grave cot Down in the midst of life the orphan child run and the widow helpless thrown upon the cold charities of the world. It All seemed hard a misfortune yet the barefooted penniless boy Haa become a useful Man an ornament to the Church a credit to the state. Had his father lived he might Hava been brought up in idleness petted spoiled a disgrace to his parents and filled a drunkards grave. Truly god behind a frowning Providence hides a smiling face. Take the Hisato of Joseph. He is in the Providence of go gtd to become Vuler Over Egypt. In the first place he it hosted by his Brothers next he is sold a slave into Egypt next we find him cast into prison. So far it does not look As though he were a child of Providence yet god was in it All. He afterwards said to his Brethren. You meant it for evil but god meant it for Good. No excuse for their wickedness that god turned it All to a Good account. It looked like a great is Smity to the jewish nation when they were led captive and their beloved City was sacked. Yet it was the Means of introducing the synagogue worship in the various countries where they Ware scattered. The Bible was translated into greek and a copy of the septuagint was placed in the various synagogues. And thus when the apostles were sent into the various countries to preach the gospel they found their work already partly accomplished All these facilities were ready at hand. So the scattering abroad of the jews though it seemed a great calamity was a Blessing to Mao a providential opening of the Way for the introduction of christianity. It looked hard that Luther should for so Long a time be confined a prisoner at Wurtemburg shut out from society deprived of the pleasures of the family Circle away from his Home and his friends. Yet it was the Means of giving to the world his translation of the script ares and his valuable commentaries which still live though he is dead. It was a crying shame that protestants should be persecuted in Britain and be denied an Asylum in Holland that to escape tyranny in the old country they should have to seek a shelter amidst the snows and ice of december in a wild Forest land inhabited by Savages and ferocious beasts yet god meant it All for Good the land needed the religious element. So Here i can not see it though i have Faith in god that it will All be turned to Good. It May be we have not been sufficiently humbled yet. It May be we Are not giving the glory to god. It May be the time and the place needed a Man made of sterner stuff than or. Lincoln. Strange indeed that in our regular lesson this morning which in the old Scop Tares for the first time for one year was the 26th chapter of numbers we should have read verse 33 Quot so be shall not pollute the land wherein be Are for blood it def Ileth the land and the land can not be Clear used of the blood that is shed therein Bat by the blood of aim was Abraham Lincoln too merciful a was he willing to let the guilty go unpunished i do not say that such was the Case and that their fore he was Saffe de to be taken oat of the Way.

A i verse 88. Quot a a know be not there is a Pali if Aad a Reat Man fallen this Day in is a four attention has been called to the piety and importance of Thia these have been to some extent enforced by a statement of the position and services i the deceased. They May be further shown by a Brief notice of his character. Making no mention of the circumstances and cause of his death not Erin no word a against the deep damnation of his taking off a heaping no anathema upon the head of the Assassin adding no breath to the righteous Public judgment sure to be visited upon those who incited it Lanned and perpetrated this deed Mak of no comment upon the incalculable loss to the country and the world and attempting no explanation or apology for gk>d8 Providence in the matter a go gtd is his own interpreter. And he will make it Plain Quot a shall confine myself strictly to a consideration of the character of oar late president. A a Prince and a great Man has fallen. Let the thoughts and feelings of this hour under god be sacred to the memory of Abraham Lincoln the honest Manl on an occasion set Spart for the purpose we have come up to this House dressed in the decent drapery of mourning to commemorate the death of a Citi sen who won by Merit and wore without reproach the honors of the highest civil position on Earth. Where and when he was bom How he was raised where he lived Are matters of interest rather than importance which i May not Stop to consider. Suffice it he Rose from the humblest walks of life he was an honest Earnest Man of toil. His life was a continuous devoted and unselfish apprenticeship to the Good of his race and the glory of his god. And he has left a Fame which will live in All that is lovable a Fame which gathers its applause from the grateful Friendship of an enriched humanity and which can be sounded Only by the plummet which sounds immortality. 1 May not examine All the characteristics which led to a life so Noble in itself so Sublime and far teaching in its results. I May therefore select a few of the More important and dwell particularly upon these. Of these one As it seems to me was Bis Ekener us Dis partition. There Are men and those too laying claim to greatness who look upon everything As dark. For them Earth Baa no Beauty and life no Joy. They mingle Little with the world and when they do they complain that the world misuses them. They would be regarded As geniuses perhaps they sit apart therefore see nobody and say nothing thinking thereby to gain repute for thoughtfulness they scowl and sneer their conversation chills and Sears your feelings and sends you away sour and my Rose. He was not one of these. His was a glad soul. To him it was a great Joy to live. He laughed As truly As he spoke and there was a subdued undertone of gladness in All that be said and did. He walked among his depressed and West com unions with Strong Eustis tread and Chi a of a a a big a. His humor and his genial whole so led sympathy with his of sly a cleared the heavy sky warmed social tin Tero Oarse and dissipated care. This if to be considered of Peculiar value in his Case As one of a less elastic and buoyant Frame of mind Pould hardly have borne the unprecedented anxiety and care of Hia poi1-tion. Another of these characteristics was hit philanthropy. Embodied in action it became Ablio spirit. Changed in form but not in sence it a a Confidence in his follows. There Are those who hold that the idea of a is a phantom Ltd a mockery. All generosity and disinterested less and pay lion Pirn it a aay a Are merely the i appearance of go a pure selfishness at Ibe Bottom. No. Ipad Doea a cod thing except for pay they being Sharp have cite of themselves and let Olin a 4o the Sana. To Sash religion is hypocrisy honesty a Prapa ratio for a staid virtue Oaty % want of Opportunity Patr Lotima a desire for Nooney or Fame and i int hrs a a fit meet of Phileaon a tical 8iuatiob� living Trio existence fool., 1 a Quot Wai al Oak of Ihns.

Thy sons titrate the elements of the poetry which ill nation feel. They Are the exponent a of those qualities of mind and learn which i More than any other make a Man like god. Therefore whoever has them Mast live whoever Haa them not Mast die. Whoever has them Mast live though a have Many Foults whoever Haa them not whatever be his excellencies be Aidt Vumbi die. Humanity will keep a a Only talf and that which a in sym Pathy Ilii it. Another of Vij site characteristics was Hia firm a in adm to thai be to be Righi. During his Fea Tife Carter no plan or parly Ever claimep., to Day he waa with the radicals�?t0-lat0iqp a was with the conservatives. Now Haf vers a project of the Border state policy a now a project of the Radical policy. If Yon wished to know where he was Yoa had Only to discover where he thought he ought to be. The Plain practical teaching of Hia life was that suffering imprison ment and death itself Are nothing compared with loyalty to truth and duty. He had ambition too but not the Pale ambition of men ready to sacrifice country and kind for self. The excellent who Are present with ask the great and Good who Are absent but whose Fame is every Beret the illustrious dead these were the objects of his emulation. He entered into a rivalry with these that begat the holiest thoughts and the noblest Deeda. Upon these he based till his eyes overflowed with tears and every tear was a baptism of Honor and parity. Glory i think he neither despised nor coveted. That he was Anxionat to please Hia countrymen is shown by one of Bis last remarks in which he said to Schuyler Colfax that he was going to the theater although mrs. Lincoln had not been Well because the papers had announced that general Grant would be present and As Grant had gone North he did not wish the audience to be disappointed. This remark i take it discovers neither vanity nor vainglory but a simple desire to gratify a very natural and legitimate curiosity. And its author though he was not accustomed to blow a trumpet would i very earnestly believe in the More important concerns of life have marched straight Forward to the Post of duty though Bis passage had been end bladed with a Hundred batteries. Another of these characteristics was Hui judgment and sagacity. It is not pretended Here that he was a finished scholar a profound statesman or even a Man of great learning. But he had around him the scholarship the learning and statesmanship of his nation and he stood among them a Tower of strength. He had that unerring judgment and that Clear unclouded far seeing sagacity test learning cannot explain nor scholarship understand. If he had not great Talent he had that rare thing which we Call Good sense and we Ipoh for All practical purposes admits of no comparison with Mare scholarship and learning. Another characteristic was his mod esty. It is difficult to believe that he could not measure his own Success or appreciate his position. And yet no word or hint that has come to Light reveals any such knowledge. Sternly in dependent he was entirely without egotism. Individual is a Rock he was yet simple in manner and sober in mind. Forming and cherishing his own opinions he yet Beard and respected those of others. Consulting and advising with everybody he yet decided and acted for himself. Firm in his deep downright faithful it therance to the right be was yet Liberal and charitable to Warda All the world. He saw nothing to venerate in a title when it was but the in okame of a fool and yet none was Ever readier to Reward Merit when convinced of its existence. He obeyed the divine in Junction a Honor All men a without regard to color and seemed to consider him self a brother to the humblest. But the characteristic that de him and marked his administration and which everybody know and talks about wat bit., Mer. In this respect he certainly a had no equal since the Dayao the divine Limpar. Tome be seemed not Only devoid of All prejudice of All of All feeling of a trad�?4>at absolutely to Ifa ave Loat the sue cent ibid to these things. To Call Abra half line la Lyral therefore certainly indicates a greater Laok of Sente or a greater do Gre a did Gravity Tofilia reasonably to be expected in any Ordinary human be ing.

Memory stretching from every Battle Field Aad Pilot Gravo to every living heart and oter this Broad land will yet swell the chords of the Union when again touched As Sory they will be by the better Angels of our the Good Man a prophecy was egret and deny it As we might they were our enemies and they assailed us. They the died our forts they stole on munitions of War they fired upon our Flag they Burnt our property they murdered our men they starved on prisoners they inflicted upon us every possible cruelty that human ingenuity could invent. Four years after this same Man standing in this same place looking Over a land red with the blood of murdered citizens breathing an atmosphere burdened with the wails of weeping Rachael and praying god if it be possible to let this cup piss uttered there matchless words Quot fondly do we be fun really 4n we Pray that this mighty sconce maa Wiki by Mas away yet if 3od wills that it continue if Ifil Alf the wealth piled by the Bondman a two Hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be Sank and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword As was said three thousand years ago so still it must be said the judgments of the lord Are True and though with malice toward none with Chrity for All with firmness in the right As Rod gives us to see the right let us strive oni to finish the work. We Are to bind up the nations wounds and care for him who shall have borne the Battle and for his widow and his orphans to do All which May achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with All great god what More a with malice toward none with Charity for All Cesar was merciful Sipie was continent Hannibal was patients Washington was All three in one but Only the Savior of the world i speak it reverently a Only the Savior of the world and this Man loved their enemies. Only the Savior of the world and this Man died exol Siming in a voice sad As Earth but Sweet As heaven a father forgive them for they know not what they do. In and through and Over nil this was an irreproachable life. Through him that righteousness which sex Steth a nation shone conspicuously Forth. There is no need As in the Case of most of our Public men to Patch up an excuse for his private vices he had them not. In his varied and exceptional endowments he was fortunate. That he had a Superior and commanding mind no one capable of judging can doubt. But in the practice of so Many Virtues social civil and religious a he was the fairest among ten thousands the one altogether Lovely. His mind was master of his passions and the glory of the one was never wrecked in the delirium of the other. Having scarcely commenced this subject i must close. Briefly and tamely i live gone Over a few of the characteristics of one who has enriched us and enriched the age. And now that i am about to close i feel Bow poorly i have told the Atory of his Worth. The Man of whom i speak was not a god but he was a most extraordinary Man. Nature made him Granite ribbed and teamed him through and through with Gold. God educated him for a great Wigt re and when that work was done he called him Home. The present can not do him Justice. Eternity alone can measure and infinite Wisdom understand his the a indirect yet natural and immediate results of his life Are numberless and measureless save to him in whose hosts and for whose plans All whether wittingly or willingly or not must serve. In the manner of hit life there is Wisdom in the a timeliness of Bis death there is warning. He that runs nay read. Let him read and let him Ponder. Let him learn and let him be Wiser. Had he of whom i speak been gifted As he was yet wanting Energy and real nation he had frittered away his life in ignoble ease or ineffective Effort. As it is he has erected a Monument which the Torma of time May not overthrow nor the Fira of Ages consume. Had be been gifted As he was yet void of moral principle he had been a pathless Comet and a curse the menace of the universe still rolling on with innate Force without a path without a course a Bright deformity on High the monster of the upper sky. As it is he Haa. Become a fixed Star set forever in the heart of eternal space to cast its Light on every people. Had he been merely a. Man of titles he had been forgotten a All titled Dott.

Now that the president has been assassinated the whole country is startled into horror at the deed but it is a sorrowful fact in the history of the last year that not Only the rebels wished the president a assassination but that copperheads in the Northwest openly expressed a desire to that effect. In View of this the Janesville wis Gazette says that the rebel sympathizers of the North have much to answer for in the Way of prolonging Thia cruel War and Are not altogether innocent of or. Lincoln a blood. During the last presidential election the editor of the la Crosse Democrat deliberately put the of lowing fearful wish in Type a if Lincoln is re elected to mis govern for the next four years we Trust that some bold hand will Pierce his heart with a Dagger Point for a Public the Beaver atm Argus another cop Rhead Sheet j8jified the above inf Smouha do Claylon of i a Crosse Democrat and added a history shows several of stances who re the i it eople have Only been saved by the a a seas sin tion of their leaders and history May repeat itself in this country. The time May me when it will be absolutely Necea aary that tiv people do away with such rulers the Quick so Way thus it will be seen that j. Wilkes Booth is not the Only Assassin that bad murder in his Black heart bit that be merely struck the blow that others tug tested and encouraged. When leading editors coolly advise the assassination of the constitutionally elected officers of the government the reckless and daring band will soon be found to lift the Dagger or pull the fatal trigger. It is a matter of record that the Dodd conspirators of Indiana contemplated the assassination of gov. Morton As anians of overthrowing the state government and putting the state on the Side of the rebels. The worst feature about it is that while the leading democrats of the state knew some Biog of the wild schemes of the conspirators they continued to Fellowship with the party ran with them on the same ticket sat with the Chicago convention and Laboured together for the defeat of or. Lincoln. It is doubtless True that the party leaders did not endorse the course of the conspirators yet if they had not countenanced them they would nol have been Able to draw ignorant men into participation of their Indianapolis Gazette. Moses Lincoln Joshua Johnson. The Chicago daily Tribune has the Fol lowing truthful comparison. It holds Good with our lamented president and we have Faith that his successor will in deed and in fact prove a Joshua and smite Tbs traitors a ship and thigh Lincoln was the Moses of the age who emancipated the american people from the Dominion and Thrall Dom of the slave Power. And led them out of Egypt and across the red sea of civil War. But be was not permitted to enter with them the promised land of Universal Freedom. He lived however Long enough to get a Good sight of the fruitful vineyards and glorious landscapes. Andy Johnson is the Joshua who will less the people into Canaan and drive out the hittites and amorite. Nothing will be done a inductively nor from a spirit of revenge but Justice must be meted Dut and Justice demands that treason should be treated As a crime and the leaders of the rebellion shall be punished. When Congress next meets it a enact some modification 6f the confiscation Law but As far As regards the property of the ringleaders it will be made More stringent and searching. Instead of limiting the confiscation to the life estate it will probably be enlarged to include the fee simple As it certainly ought to be. Property thus taken will sell for what it is Worth and the proceeds will lighten the Burden of pub to debt and taxation. A Sugni float fast. Among the official documents found in the rebel capital on the entry of our Troope into Richmond was a Bill offered in Aje Cret session of the rebel House of representatives january 30th, 1865, establishing a secret service Bureau for the employment of secret agents either in Tife Confederate Sites or within the enemy s lines or in any foreign country and a to pricing officer a to organise such a system Vor the Appu cation or new Means of warfare approved and of the establishment of the Bureau.
