Immediately the Village Bell and the alarm guns aroused the people of the Village and neighbourhood from sleep and brought them together for consultation. Among the number were the Rev. Or. Emerson their pastor and colonel Barrett who had charge of the military stores. The militia Aid minute men of Concord hastily assembled with their arms and measures were at Onoe taken for Oono Al log such of the stores As had not already Bee a removed. Some were carried to the neighbouring Woods some were concealed under rubbish near the houses. Soon after this a messenger who had been sent Back to Lexington for further news returned with the tidings of the collision at that place and of the rapid March of the regulars towards Concord. Soon also the militia and minute men of Lincoln under command of captains Smith and Farrar came in and joined themselves to the men of Concord. A Small detachment then moved off in the direction of Lexington to meet the enemy but soon returned with the report that the British were three or four times their number. Upon the nearer approach of the regulars the provincials retired to an Eminence overlooking the Village and about eighty rods Distant from the Center. There they were joined by colonel Barrett the senior officer present who ordered the militia under his command to retire to a greater distance and there wait for re enforcements. To British marched into Concord in two con Jan and while the main body under Colo flt Smith remained in the Cen Tho Tepsa and by the main portion of the provincials who had now left Concord Village in Pursuit of the enemy. Hate at Merriam s Corner began the real Batik of Ike is. A amp d i re it let i by this time the blood of the provincials was fully a Soaad and All restraint was at an end. 91� main body of the British kept to the Highway while the per Surg party and those constantly arriving from towns on tip East and South West took position i the Fields on the Hille behind Wallah Trees and How ses and at the numb reos hands in it Road and than were Able to interrupt harass kill and wound the a Ebay a Little further on a company from Sudbury attacked with vigor and noon the British found themselves Between two fires. Here also they met with considerable loss. Soon the men of Woburn came up and further on in the town of Lincoln where Captain Parker previously mentioned had collected his Meo the enemy were fiercely attacked and suffered severely. Eight of their slain were buried in that town the provincials losing Only three. The Retreat now became a rout and so continued until the British had passed Lexington common. A Fiske Hill they made a desperate Effort to rally but the hot Pursuit and the constant attacks made by flanking parties rendered this impossible. Here colonel Smith was severely wounded and another officer was a horsed. Here too of cured instances of great bravery on both sides. Here too it was that James Hayward of Aston met a British Soldier As both approx shed a Well to obtain a draught of water. The briton Drew up his gun and exclaimed a a you Are a dead Man a a and so Are you Quot replied Young Hayward. They both fired and both fell the former was instantly killed the latter died the next Day. The British did not pause at Lexington common where they had displayed so much barbarity in the morning but hastened on almost overcome by fatigue and the excessive heat of the Day. They had nearly exhausted their ammunition and were themselves too much exhausted and frightened even to Stop to Bury their dead or carry off their severely wounded. About half a mile beyond Lexington common to their great Relief they were met by Earl Peroy with a Large body of re enforcements from Boston. Mahon a British historian says that Smith s Force would have been entirely destroyed had not Gage sent supporting troops and Stedman another British historian who accompanied Peroy says Uthe British were driven before the americans like sheep and that when they arrived within the hollow Square formed by Percy s troops to receive them they were obliged to lie Down upon the ground their tongues ter of the town attachments were sent off to Seise and hold to Bridges Over Tbs hanging out of their Mouths like those of Concord River so As of prevent the militia from the country coming to Ltd the assistance of Concord ,. It was now about two hours after Sunrise and the Force of provincials had increased to the number of four Hundred and fifty. They were collected at a Point northerly of the North Bridge and formed into ranks by adjutant Hosmer of Concord. Between them and the Village Lay the North Bridge occupied by a detachment of regulars. Before Long they saw that fires had been started in the Village by colonel Smiths Force which was engaged in Hunting and destroying stores. Fearing that the whole Village would be destroyed the provincials decided to make a a Effort to pass the Bridge attempt to drive the enemy Hack toward Boston and if possible prevent a general conflagration. The americans at this time outnumbered the detachment at the Bridge four to one but they knew full Well that any attempt to pass the Bridge would be disputed and at tended with loss of he. The Post of Honor in the assaulting Olumn belonged of right to the men of Concord. This they declined. It was then offered to the Brave Captain Davis and his company from Acton and accepted. Captain Divis said a a i have n t a Man in my company that is afraid to Captain William Smith of Lincoln also volunteered to Lead the column. It is said that several officers seniors of Captain Davis declined the Post of danger. Colonel Barrett ordered the column to pass the Bridge and designated major Buttrick to execute this order. Lieu tenant Colo Nel Robinson of Westford volunteered his Aid. The provincials moved Forward in two opium is. A they approached the Bridge Bie British re crossed Aad Bagan to remove the planks and fired upon the provincials wounding one. This was followed by another Volley which killed Captain Davis and wounded one of his men. Mejor but trick now ordered the provincials to fire which they did killing one and wounding several of the British. The latter hastily fled toward the Village and joined the main Foody under colonel Smith. The provincials followed some distance then divided into two parties and took position in the neighbourhood. As yet they were not sufficiently Strong to warrant an attack upon the concentrated Force of the enemy now numbering six or seven Hundred men. The British succeeded in destroying Boxt few stores. According to Gordon a a they disabled their Twenty four Pounders destroying three carriages wheels and limbers sixteen wheels for brass three Pounders two carriages with wheels for two four Pounders about one Hundred weight of balls which they threw into the River and Wells and sixty barrels of flour one half of which was afterwards saved/1 about noon the British began their Retreat to Boston and had proceeded nearly a mile without molestation when they were fiercely attacked by a party of Mih Ute men from Reading under Gap Aih it afterwards governor Brooks by another company from Bill Erica under Captain a dog after a Percy a Force consisted of three regiments of infantry two divisions of Marine and two Field pieces. They left Boston about nine in the morning by Way of Roxbury Brighton and Cambridge marching to the tone of a a Yankee they met with Little obstruction and no loss except that a few wagons carrying provisions and five or six guards were captured near West Cambridge by citizens of that town under the Lead of the Utcy or. Payson of Chelsea and one Lam son a half Breed Indian. After Smith s detachment had rested a Short time Percy now in command ordered the Retreat to be renewed by Way of Cambridge and Charlestown and although he now had a Force of eighteen Hundred men and mostly fresh troops in a High state of discipline aided by artillery a a he showed no disposition to attack the rebels in his rear or the citizens who Hung on his flanks and attacked him at every convenient it was now three o clock and seeing that the British greatly outnumbered them Many of the americans gave up the Pursuit and returned to their Homes. The majority however remained and general Heath who had now arrived acting under orders of the provincial Congress assumed command of the provincials. At West Cambridge Percy encountered a body of militia and minute men from Cambridge Box Bury Dorchester Brookline Dedham Watertown Medford Needham Charlestown and Lynn. Here also were one Hundred men from Danvers under the Brave Yonng Foster. The British thus finding themselves Between two fires halted Drew up in order of Battle and used their Field pieces. General Heath aided by or. Warren who fell at banker Hill on the 17th of june following her made an Effort with but partial Suo oese to reduce the mass of provincials to order but the men were too much incensed and too eager for the fight and the British too anxious to reach the cover of their ships of War to permit a formal Battle. From this Point the latter hastened their Retreat interrupted Only by skirmishing parties in front and on their flanks and by the swelling body of provincials in their rear. A a r from Lexington to Charlestown the British committed repeated acts of vandalism plundering and burning houses and driving from them the aged infirm sick and defenceless occupants. Aged and unarmed men were brutally murdered and no restraint whatever to the barbarous conduct of his soldiers was put upon them by Earl Percy or his subordinates. Their Retreat to Charlestown was greatly impeded by the accumulation of their dead and wounded. At the same time they had nearly exhausted their ammunition and their Field pieces now were of Little use. When they arrived near Charlestown they encountered fresh obstruction and suffered considerable loss. At Prospect Hill it is said they received the hottest file of the Day. Quot about Sunset Quot says Frothingham a a general Gage might have seen his harassed troops almost on the run coming Down the old Cambridge Road to Charlestown Neok anxious to get mud Der the guns of the ships of War the minute men olo Seiy followed but when they reached Charlestown common general Heath ordered them in Stop the Pursuit had Percy a troops been but a trifle later says Hudson they would inevitably have been Cut off by the Essex regiment of seven Hundred men under colonel Timothy Pickering had by the troops from Dore Heeter Milton and other places. A i mgt a the Lees of the British during the Day was seventy three killed one Hundred and seventy four wounded and Twenty six missing. Of these eighteen were commissioned officers. The loss of the Amer Loans was forty nine killed thirty nine wounded and five missing. Of All the towns Lexington suffered most severely its lose being nine killed and , one of whom also died the same Day. The town of Danvers stood second in Point of loss it being about ten per cent of the troops from that town. The events of the Day aroused the people of Massachusetts to the highest pitch of ardor in defense of their imperilled liberties. After the first attacks of the morning at Lexington and Condard messengers were sent in All directions with the news and in an almost incredibly Short time the tidings Reso hed the Eastern Western and Southern sections of the provinces. Messengers were also dispatched to the committees of safety in the other provinces and to the committees of correspondence and safety in Philadelphia. The messengers who left Watertown at ten o Olock passing through Worcester a distance of thirty Miles by noon arrived at Norwich. Conn., at four in the afternoon and new London at seven thence through Lyme at one a. M., Saybrook at four killings Worth at seven Guilford at ten he reached new Haven at noon of april 21st. The news arrived at Trenton n. J., about nine a. M., april 24th, and at Philadelphia the same Day and thence spread rapidly Over the Southern and Western portions of the country. It Reso hed Newburyport at twelve m., on the 19th, and Portsmouth n. Hearly on the morning of the 20th. The greatest excitement prevailed every where and it was now seen that the British ministry were in Earnest in their threats to conquer and humiliate America. The people saw too a demonstration of the by serf Gellas Tref and self sacrificing spirit of those whose lot it was to feel the first Shock of the conf idiot their sympathies were aroused and the resolve was then breathed along the whole line from Maine to Georgia that the people of All the colonies must and would stand by each other in a common defense.

The Unity of god is Why they should net be inf need to and believe in Christ by highest sensibilities 7 of Aoa Jet the Patjens. The Only masses do not think out i Imp Tien toward a understanding heterodoxy or Subtle by 1uitii q. Hag amp Man. A quotation from a genteel engish periodical the saturday review says of the work of Moody and Sankey a no attempt is made at reasoning or reflection. There is not the faintest Trace of educated thought or spiritual Elevation in any of or. Moody s speeches and it is evident that he often done not understand the texts he professes to expound. But then National and Are intended to produce Only a High degree of emotional the method Here criticised As being a Mere sensational Way of stimulating the emotions to really one of the Best that could be used nowadays. The i differ Entis of the Day among the masses would seem to require Jast such methods. The words of the polished review which Are apparently meant to be a belittling explanation Are in fast an Apt pointing out of the Strong features of the Mode of operating. The Oriti ism is a compliment. Almost every Man in the nominally Christian lands of England and America has heard something about the gospel of Christ. The average unsaved Man believes it in a half hearted indolent indifferent sort of Way. It is a matter that he will perhaps attend to some time but not just now. To Trust Christ for emancipation from sin and for a Hope of blessed immortality is a Good tiling to do after awhile when i have enjoyed a Little More of the world won a wife gained a snog Home achieved greater Success in business and have become More famous in my profession. Thus seems to run the excuses of the world Ling while he defers Hie return to god until a More convenient season. Now these who an in such a state of mind need rousing to present action. They want an emotional stimulus to quicken the sluggish relaxed moral Powers and urge to immediate de Teion. The sensibilities must be appealed to As Well As the under standby. 4 a the methods of Moody and Sankey Are psychologically Correct despite the cold critical pronouncements of the rationalists. They Are calling men to repentance and they address those faculties which will be Apt to most readily yield responsive action. Vital truths fervently asserted they Are not addressed to the intelligence. The methods employed Are distinctly sen log and the earnestness of simple appeals Lect Al heresy. Their Bei pages ase simple and mainly pro tidal. They set rather than theorise audit is Fri Denar that Mee Are emotionally drawn say and enticed of their evil desires of i against their better judgment. The counter Active Power must therefore be in Salle degree emotional. A 7ii gtd �?T7. Hence it is eminently proper for the evangelists of Christ s gospel to address the sensibilities As Well As the reason of their hearers. In winning souls it is Wise to touch the primal Moat effective Springs of human action. In lands Long fevered with the Light of the gospel there Gre but few who do not know Good from evil their Heads Are convinced that god s Law is Good. What is needed is fervent stirring appeals that will reach and produce conviction in the heart so kindling and moving men that they will consent to embrace Christ and at Onoe begin to keep his commandments instead of longer obeying fleshly lusts. Scholastie skill in logical methods is not As effective in moving masses of men As is the simple setting Forth of truth by a heart filled with the holy ghost i m of i i be Ufa of course it would be Well if men would but calmly listen to the pure authoritative teachings of Christ and quietly and promptly obey. But it requite a trained intellect to grasp passionless truth with All its antecedents and consequent in cogent logical order. And one most have an Unwar Ped heart and a Strong will in order to yield ready obedience to divine truth presented without notion and emotional fire. But the masses of to Day Are not always possessors of trained intellects Unwar Ped hearts and Strong wills. They must be moved by stirring appeals to the heart As Well As by a Plain address to the reason. Bat mers rhetorical flourish and sentimental effusions of aesthetic Prett Nesses May excite the superficial sensibilities. And yet not incite to True repentance. There Mist be the Power of the spirit to ant men to the heart. Bad emotional excitement propagated by evil men helps to per people Down to perdition. Good emote a re Al excitement set going by goofy teen will help to lift men toward salvation. It takes Power to move men. And Wber there is spiritual Power there will be More or less emotion but not All men Are moved equally by the same surroundings or manifestations. Some attn Are More emotional than others and one can not be judged by another. Those who have Strong wills to quell their emotions have Strong wills to act and. Therefore have mud responsibility. They ought not to wait for # Resistless tide of emotion to flood them Tow Asdan impulsive repentance and a Resistless translation from the Power of satan to the peace of god. Let us beware How we Buffer ourselves to be ashamed of the foolishness of preach floating vapor the the compact Mineral a Stewa but must be Hewa Utah Roku from Pei any taught in the scripture yet a a reformed to acknowledge in this Unity approx of this a to men to repent and be saved. While insisting on having All things done decently and in order let us avoid the attenuated extreme of Finical formality and precis placidity in beseeching men to be reconciled to god.

The polished links of Irre Fragalle reasoning May be olo Seiy wound ground the understanding by the dry hard hand of logic but these entwined chains of premises and Tejml tetons win be Mikety to produce go pent i Quot to ire not told that he reasoned in my opinion the error of those assert Christ a Pec ability lies in not Cep Ting the doctrine of the inseparability of his divine and hut in natures or admitting this in failing to see that such admission precludes the possibility of sin. They and led into this error doubtless by the difficulty of reconciling Hie impel ability with his free will. Now we shall Endeavor to show first that the two natures a Christ Are so bound together in the Unity of his being As to be essentially Indi visible and that from this indivisibility the impossibility of his sitting follows As a necessary corollary. But second that this impossibility did not necessitate his volition vitiate the character of his Triumph Over temptation or effect the voluntariness of his human will in submitting to the self sacrifice determined on by the argument a favor of the indivisibility of the two natures in Christ May be drawn from the philosophy of spirit m which we conceive their Union to be founded. We mean by spirit that in visible essence the Sab step be of att intelligent existence which however it May i a Story is i recognizing the Unity As sub sisting in spirit self existent in to he person identical a each Aad by virtue of identity Otera Elly merged together in being. A c h r is to god and Man Are uni through til is identity of spiritual essence. God forms aaa s body from the dust of the Earth but into this dead organism he breathed the breath of life and he became a living soul. Now while both these sets May have been creative yet the mosaic phraseology chows that Man s body is a formation from matter while his soul or conscious self id an emanation from spirit now if i body is identical a Suft Tahoe with the tenth from which it emf fifis his spirit Mast be substantially identical i the essence from which it is derived. In May he objected that this View unduly exalts Man and Lowers deity. Not so. Same Ness of essence does not imply sameness of nature or attributes. The simple idea of number is the same in one two and three a in one million yet tha magnitude represented by the latter is vastly greater than that of the former. A Diamond and a Block of Coal Are the same in elements yet How different in nature and Valam a spirit in Man is limited in god it is infinite. In Man it sparkle As the drop in god Rolls boundless As the Ocean. In sum it is derived in god it is original. Oat of this element in Man arise attributes faintly reflecting gods Powers but by reason of their impure and limited source perverted in nature and circumscribed in action but from the eternal Fountain of life lying in the deity god s attributes Spring a infinite in perfection omnipotent in Energy and glorious in manifestation. elements that Are Homo Enouf May remain apart by once United division is no longer possible. Their Coalescence produces Unity. Two glasses of water alike in chemical Constitution arc yet distinct in their particles but pour both into one vessel and the particles will so mingle As to Render separation impossible. So in the incarnation god Poar a the fullness of tha godhead and the perfection of manhood into the me person Jesus Christ thereby commingling the divine Fountain us the human Rill and rendering tile Union of the two eternally inseparable. Nowhere in the scriptures is there intimation of duality in the person of Christ. He is every where spoken of As one being. And yet his life exhibits a two Feid manifestation. We read that a sus sometimes spoke and Aoto a Ftp a Man might speak and act and again he spoke As none but god could speak and did works that none but god could do. This person hungering and thirsting eating and drinking and weeping and suffering As men do could change his voice to that of a god casting out devils giving sight to the Blind hearing to the deaf speech to the dumb and raising the dead from their Gre pm whence this divine Energy that spake in his voice and went Forth from his touch was it from without and came at his bidding or was it from within was Jesus a magician or was he a god was his divinity inherent or did it take temporary Possession of him As the devils did of the Demoniac no satisfactory solutions ban be Given to these question except by allowing that in Christ resided two natures distinct in their characteristics yet so run together in their essential who Fri elements of being As to form an entity in Zoje capable of i Fillon. If you ask How from the flite personality there should arise two natures so different a the human and the divine i answer it in mystery we can not solve but no great it mystery than is met with in nature All arts Tif a. Foff. Agassiz states in his Lee tier Ott ref it Duption that the seminal Geritie bbl a tto Fecunda tion is the same in appearance and chemical Constitution in All animals yet one develop a Bird another a fish another a beast and another a Man. Two plants of Kindred varieties May be United in the same Stock by grafting forming st individual Plant Bat though they Aya made one by reason of a common foundation yet each retains unchanged its natural qualities. If mystery were incompatible with truth the entire universe would be a huge fraud. Another argument in favor of the inseparability of the two natures in Christ is based upon the fast that he was no Only the realisation of former types but was himself a Type of that perfected i Minifay which his Mission is designed to bring about. We have not space to dwell Here. Suffice it say that he was both the Type of the eternal Rook. It it v m of i have dwelt Tiras at length upon the character of the Dank amen in Christ because in my judgment upon this depends non possibility of Hie be allowed upon no supposition other than that the Goa of Liq a Yum not a personal Union but a Mere juxtaposition a simple connection severable at will. A a according to this Votaw he was not essentially divine Bat was god merely Juhe det Boniet of his Day were devils deity acting through his bodily organa a did satan through the personal s�4 therefore inseparable Union of the two natures a Christ and the impossibility of his sinning inevitably follows. This needs no Demon stration far if it a Era possible for Higa to sin then a Union Between god and sin must be Poe Aible a conclusion that bears tejoi#tt4tj�gtement, with who hold the abstract possibility of s sinning claiming at the same time from whatever cause the impossibility of its actual realization we have no controversy. The tangled thread of such reasoning Are not Worth the unravelling. A Mere abstraction is a practical nonentity. At methodist Iii Eravoy. Eve since John Wesley Asbury m a Kendree and others fait the Tih twas a Durden Laid upon them a a to spread scriptural holiness Over these lands Quot there have been certain a a methods Quot characteristic of our Church. Prominent among these is the a it inerrancy for a Long time two years was the limit beyond which no pastor would remain continuously Over one charge. Some years since this limit was changed to three years and thus an entering wedge was made threatening the destruction of the itinerant system at least Many so predicted and that their predictions were True is shown to Day by a manifested determination on the part of Many preachers to have this limit extended by the next general conference to five years. If this should be done of course the next move would be to leave the whole matter discretionary with the Bishop feature of methodism a fit conference for 1s76 has not yet convened. And in the mean time let us reason together before this measure fraught with much possible evil is forced upon the Char ohm we say forced because if the proposed change were submitted to be acted upon by the membership of the Church we believe it would be rejected by at least a three fourths vote. V a a Are the Adan Law of such a change f it,i�2imed that the circumstances of the of Huron Are widely different from what they formerly were that Many of our ministers Are now Learned and capable of edifying a single Church for a Long series of years that pastors of other churches by becoming identified with the citizens of a town and remaining in one place for a Long period exert an influence and Power in moral and secular matters far beyond what itinerant preachers Are capable of wielding and consequently methodist preachers do not stand so High in Publio estimation a they should or As their real Merit entitles them that just about the time a methodist preacher gets fairly acquainted with the people of his Church and has organized the Mettke Inte Good working order he has to begin to look Forward to the time when he has to leave to go through again the same embarrassing r trials at some other Point that it imposes an unnecessary expense worry and trouble on account of these frequent removals. Having thus As we think fairly stated the advantages we will now proceed to speak of the disadvantages of suck a change. In the first place then people Are so constituted that a portion of a congregation will have a liking to one Man rms Eli if by and expenses of the itinerant plan. Now try is she to is great and to by looked a to i it net carnal and unworthy of being mentioned if Pastora of other congregations by virtue of their Greener identification with the citizens of a town do sometime seem to Wield a More powerful influence in reference the moral Aad secular matters do they realty build up of Ronger and More spiritual churches than itinerant meth a Flint Pusan inn Are rating i i in i Aslo As so the and expense Dee not Titis savor of Sel fishnet in # we be unerring with flesh and blood instead of looking Only to Tho glory of god besides when a Man entered the methodist ministry did he not know All about the inconveniences axed exp Knees of the itinerant of w but there is another reason Why the laity have a particular liking to the iti Nerancy. Borne men Are so wondrously divinely commissioned and Are so generally Lik a by the congregation who hear them that any chips he is to be congratulated when it it Gash a preacher. Bat should on Church Hava a monopoly of him and should other Church organization equally needy and Warthy be denied the privilege of sharing try portion of Hia life services Why should not from Twenty to thirty churches a a conference be awakened Inte new life by i preaching in the course of i Active ministerial life ?. We have not time in this article to dwell on the fast that the change a other. Churches Are quite As frequent a they Are in ours Aad that those changes Are effected with much More friction. Nor have we time the More than allude to the fact that even with our advanced civilization the methodist Church of to Day with its iti Nerancy is prospering to a far mater degree than any of the other Yaag Seal churches. 0ath0u0 f&is8ts Verso p�obli0-Sohool tea0heb8.
