So too, whila obedience and loyalty t the con
stituted authorities are required of every subject.
under every form of government, the duties of
rulers are no less clearly cxprennl and implied.
The same prophets that bore their burning n:'s
uxrt tt the people, denouncing the wrath of ioJ
agirwt prevailing iniquity and popular mii?, were
hardly am freruently eoumunioned to warn thoe
who occupied the high places of power, and to
' promulgate mor il principles for the government
of princes. And our Lord and his a pontic,
while avoiding partisan political strifes, and de
claring that the divine kingdom which they
sought to establish was to be advanced not by
pr' tieal maneuvering, but by the dissemination
of piritual troth, did nevertheless prartically
illustrate tbe fact that Cliristianity was dcign-d
not to take men out of the world and to secure
sanctity by seclusion, bat to make them only the
more efficient in every department of dorr, ai d
in every calling and condition in life. While
thy never presumed to dictate a line of secular
policy to their rulers, or offensively claimed a vir
tual supervision and control of public affair,
thy did seek to inculcate stich general principles
as should teed to make every man in hi. own
sphere and capacity the host man for that position.
As a minister of Christ, it is manifestly my
duty to declare the whole counsel of God. to ex
pound God's word in every part, and to bring the
principles cf Christian morality to bear upon all
classes of men. In preaching upon the duties of
rulers, however, it surely cannot be necessary to
disavow any purpose to shape specific legislation,
or to InSuence individual appointment. Nor
will any one do me the injustice to think that I
would d-grade my sacred office by making an
' attack, either openly or implied, upon those who
v are- her intrusted with positions of honor and in
fluence. Ana let me say that, as it :s not my province
to judge of the cajacity or the character of pub
lie men, and to say who are fitted to hold such
otEces, so neither are you called upon to sit here
as jurors to decide upon the merit or demerits of
individuals. It is our business to contemplate
the Bible pattern for rulers and subject, and
then to strive to lire up to what is required of
each one nf us in our own position. And if, in
rontemplating this perfect pattern, any of you
who hoid office shoo Id seem to yourselves to come
short of it. you shall have no more right to infer
that I am aiming to secure your removal from
bfice than that I aim to put every sinner out of
the world who does not come up to tbe perfect
standard of character which it is my duty at all
tinis to bold up before all men.
Taking the word of God then as our guide, we
remark that the first qualification of a ruler is
a?imtt. St thought the Cuher-i"-Iaw of Moses
when -2 gav him the excellent advice in the text,
advice whieh Mmo. under the divine direction.
was prufn ft in following : Moreover, thnu shall
provide out of all people able mm, such us (e.r
' (tod, men of truth, hating covetou.n., and
place such over them tJ bo rulers. No matter
what qualification. men may have fir th hum
bler walks of life, if they are not men of ability,
. they ought not to hold places of great responsi
. . .bility ia the government. A busincf hotix, or
a stock com jsnj which hasalargecajit:il invent
ed and great interests at i tak, ran afford, and
Might to command the best business talent avail
able for the management of its affairs. But no
business house can in influence, in importance, or
: in the pecuniary intercste involved, le coinared
with a government which haJ to do, not alone
with the protection of property, but has j-owcr
to open new channels of wealth, to foster untried
arts, to guard the gate-ways of commerce, to!
. maintain that social order uon which all values ;
depend, and t provide for the intellectual train- j
ing. and to some extent, for tbe mon-.l culture of!
a great nation.

.Honesty of intention will not compensate for
hlunderinir awkwardness. I'uritv of life will not
worth will not make good a nation's ksses.
Christianity t'jaclies no such absurdity a. that
pious men are to hare the precedence over others,
where they arc not by their abiliti.-, a well as
tf'eir virtues, fitted to govern. It would not give
a devout dunce command of a ship in a storm
because he chanced to b the most pious man on j
board : nor wonld it warrant any man in aspiring !
to positions of trust for which he is not fitted by j
talent and experience, and where bis godnesj
must of necessity lie evil spoken of. It i. more-,
over, undesirable that a man's natural amiability '
or his Christian graces should U? put into the;
market, or that one's domestic and social virtues
should be his sole trailing capital. Smie men are ;
born to rule. They are constitutionally adapted j
to make, to expound, or to adminL-t-r the laws, j
And if their time and talents have b ren properly J
improved, they are, other things being equal, the j
best men that can be selected U r legislators,
judge and executive officers. But natural capa- j
citr and adaptation are not all that is requisite, j

If this Im true, does it not follow that the m ire
truly reverential and devout the rulers of any
p-ople, the stronger are the guarantees for integ
rity, hon ir and faithfulness in the discharge of
official duties? If, then, piety is not of itself a
sufficient qualification for office, it surely does not
disqualify any one who, in other respects, is fitted
That fear of God which i. the beginning of
wisdom tends not to make any tuan less shrewd,
lesa prudent, or less efficient. It is no antiquated
theory which the wisdom of later times has dis
carded, but a practical truth, indorsed by the
exjrince of nations in everv age and under
every form of government. " When the righteous
are in authority the jeopIe rejoice; but when the
wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.' " For
righteousness exalteth a nati ju ; but sin is a re
proach t- any p-cople."
The i'riest of Midian also advi-d the great
law-giver and ruler of the Isriielites t aj rint
as his subordinates in office mrn vf truth. From
the rulers ol thousands down to the rulers of
ten, he thought it iuiportant that they should
all be men of veracity ; honest in their purposes,
sincere in their prcK'nsions, and faithful in ful
filling all their promi-s. Mutual confidence,
the cement of society, lo its cohesira power in
an atmosphere where falsehood abounds. And
the more conspicuous the position, and the more
extensive the influence of the man whose word is
worthless, the more damaging L he to society.
The lack of sincerity and candor among states
men and iliticians, so far from being compara
tively excusable, i more culable, by as much us
the exam 1 1; is more jn-rniciou, and greater in
terests are involved. That was an immortal
utterance of the French King, who said 44 If
truth were to be banished from the world, it
ought stl'.l to find n resid.-nce in tl.o breast of
II jr.esty i the best policy not only for the pri
vate citizen but for cabinet and councils, for the
magistrate and the monarch.
Nor did the sage of Midian forget to add
that rulers, from the highest to the lowest, should
be men holing corttovsnrss. Not merely unsel
fish, but hating cuvetousness. Not only shaking
their hands from the receiving and holding of
bribes, but detesting those who, ever so indirect
ly, would offer them. The man who takes office
solely for the emoluments, and who thinks it
clear gain to do the least allowable amount of
work for the largest procurable j ay, is not a man
bating cuvetousness. He who jeopard p-ublic
funds in private peculations, lias not a very
strong hatred ot covctousness. Ho who thinks
that the public owes him a living, and has de
generated from a man dijoscd to earn his daily
bread, into a rolitieal beggar, and a confirmed
office seeker, is not ordinarily, a man hating
Alas for the people among whom genuine, old
fashioned patriotism has died out, and a lust of
power and a greed ol gain arc the motives and
mainsprings to political activity.
Who will doubt now that this Priest of Midi
an, who nxeJdlrd with politics, was a wise coun
sellor and a far-sighted lolitician? Who will
question the wisdom of Moses in following the
advice of his excellent father-in-law? Blessed is
the king who has such counsellors ; and blessed
are the peojle who, through anybody's influ
ence, are provided with such rulers. Does this
enumeration of the elements of fitness in office
holders seem to you incomplete? I remark that
the more the adnce of Jcthra is studied, the more
clearly it shull apear that, within the compass
of these general statements, many items of fitness
are implied which are not distinctly announced.
Thus the man of ability, fearing God ; the
roan of truth, hating covetousness, is necessarily
a faithful man. For if he is a man of truth his
oath of office pledges him to fidelity. And if he
fears God he will strive, as in His sight, rightly
to perform every dutv, and to erforni it lroin
the proper motives. However high or numerous
bis titles, be is not an honorable man who is
content to serve less faithfully in a puMic capac
ity, and for a high salary, than he would serve
private jirties for less pav.
Not less obvious is the inference that they w ho
fear God. and are men of truth, hating eovctous
ness will be character zed by that love of justice,
that honesty in interpreting the laws, and that
promptness :u executing ti cm, which are essen
tial to fidelity. Nor less earnest and active will
such rulers lie in redressing wrongs, in relieving
distress, in equalizing the public burdens, in
anticipating and guarding against coming evils, in
promoting knowledge, virtue and industry, and
in striving to secure ull the element of eace,
progress and prosperity.
Anl this leads me finally to remark that, in
sueh a kingdom as this, thr ruUrs thuuld 1 jre
iniinrntlij PARtXT.vL. Bjth by example and
precept, promoting Innpt ranre, intc ligmce, in
dustry, and stlf-tonlrot, they should, in deal
ing with a nation of grown up children, sup
ply such restraints to vice, und such safeguards
to virtue, as every judicious, G id-learing
father fee!. bound to throw around his children.
Among sueh a ieop!e the iargrst Iifurfi da evil
may a licrnse t f'f.drxtrurliim. The rharUr
ing of riee may be signing the dtath warrant of
the nitiun. As surely as most children will ln
f poiled by letting them do as they have a mind
to, so surely iu;.v the oUlient subjects of this
sovereignty beruiiird by removing from them the
hand of -arcntul authority and the wholesome
restraints of moral law.
From the shadow of such an iinending disas
ter may God preserve this remarkable t-cople, the
record of whose peaceful political progress must
form one of the most interesting chapters in the
yet unwritten history of civilization.
With gratitude for the past and hope for the
future, le this our utterance of piety and patri
otism to-d:iy : Fruin every evil, physical and
moral ; frcm every calamity to person or proper
ty ; from every error in doctrine or practice,
