In the administration of the affairs of this
world God is ever doin and permitting
things to bi done, the reasons for which can
not b seen by short-sighted mortals. Such
is God's method of proceeding, that we are
continually complied to take many twiners

to the world l-ause of otiriicrs." Then,
too, with what inasterlv emphasis he quotes
words of the Psalmist David, prefac
" If Clod will that the war continue
until all the wealth piled by the bondman's
two hundred and fifty years of unrequited
toil, shall be sunk, and until every drop of
.blood drawn with the lash shall be paid bv
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 righteous altogether.' " Noble utter-

has drawn an unpenetrable veil before our
-yes, shutting out the future from our view.
" Ye know not what shall be on the morrow,"
or what a day may bring forth." How
impressively these scriptural declarations and
thoe of my text are illustrated bv events
which have recently transpired on the other
side of the globe. All the loval people of
iuai great country, stretcning irom tne shores
of the Atlantic to the Pacific, and from the
Gull to the Lake were preparing for such
a day of thanksgiving and jubilee as never
had been witnessed on the Western Conti
nent. The national feeling which, during
luur jcais 01 civil war nau been repressed,
was rising, and about to burst forth in such
scenes and shouts of rejoicing as would have
made the welki n ring." The dove of peace
which had, during those fourlong years, been
confined to the ark, rocked and tossed upon the
troubled waters of civil strife, political con
tentions and cruel war, had now been re
leased, and with the olive branch in her
mouth, was winging her flight over moun
tains and valleys, broad savannahs and
boundless prairies. The good news was
flashed with lightning speed over the land
and th2 world. The dark clouds were roll
ing away, and the sun of the nation's glory
was beginning to shine, and the rainbow of
peace was distinctly seen spanning a conti
nent, as in days .f yore, when lo ! from the
receding black clouds of secession, treachery
and slavery, there darted forth a fiendish
arm, holding in its hand an assassin's dagger.
The whole scene is instantly changed. For
a moment the pulse and heart of the nation
cease to beat, but the next instant there fol
lows a sigh of anguish and wail of sorrow.
Abraham Lincoln, our beloved President, is
- dead ! I do not believe, since the creation of
the world, so many hearts, in so short a space
of time, ever mourned over the death of a
single human being. There is no disputing
or gainsaying the fact, Abraham Lincoln had
gradually been winning for himself a place
in the hearts of the American people, second
only to that of Washington, the Father of
his country. But will not the people now
call him the Savior of the country, when the
life of the nation was threatened ?
This most tragic event is not an accident.
It is not the work of chance. We do not
live in a world ruled over by blind fate. Never
before did 1 realize there was so much force
and intensity of meaning in those words of
our Savior : " But the very hairs of your
head are all numbered,"' nnd even a sparrow
"shall not fall on the ground without your
Father." I do not think there ever was a
public man who recognized more clearly and
fully this doctrine of God's Special Provi
dence, than did our lamented President.
Gathered as we now are in the house of God,
on this first Sabbath morning after having
received the news of his death, how can I
more appropriately employ the usual time
allotted to a discourse than by directing vour
minds to some of those moral and spiritual
lessons taught by this most sad and melan
choly event. The telegraphic intelligence
which has reached the Islands is quite suffi
cient to disclose the naked facts, but insuffi
cient to portray the effects upon the country
at large. Under these cirrumstances, per
haps I may be allowed to dwell upon the re
ligious feature? of .Mr. Lincoln's character,
lie was a public man, and had been called to
occupy a most responsible and trying public
position. He fully realized this fact from the
very moment that he stepped forth from the
sphere of a private American citizen to oc
cupy the highest position within the gift of
his countrymen. His brief address on leav
ing his home at Springfield, Illinois, is inim
itably beautiful : My Friends No one not
in my position can appreciate the sadness I
feel at this parting. To this people I owe
all that I am. Here I have lived more than
a quarter of a century ; here my children
were born, and here one of them lies buried.
I know not how soon I shall see you again.
A duty devolves upon me which is perhaps
greater than that which has devolved upon
any other man since the days of Washing
ton. He never would have succeeded except
for the aid of Divine Providence, upon which
he at all times relied. I feel that I cannot
succeed without the same Divine aid which
sustained him, and on the same Almighty
Being I place my reliance for support. "I
hope you, my friends, will pray that I may
receive that Divine assistance, without which
I cannot succeed, but with which success is
certain. I bid vou all an affectionate fare
During the delivery of this short address
the audience was much affected, and when
it closed there was the hearty response, " We
will pray for you." During his progress to j
Washington he uttered similar sentiments at !
Columbus and Steubenvillc, in Ohio, ever !
expressing '"the hope that he should be sus- !
tained by the prayers of the American peo- !
pie. In this address we have the key-note '
to all his subsequent addresses, letters, proc- '
I&mations and public documents. I cannot !
recall a single one in which he did not fully
and frankly recognize God's agency in the
management of the affairs of this world.
His allusions to an overruling Providence
were not in an half-apologistic and semi-in- j minutes, and hearing a voice, as if in grave
ridel style, as if he wished to conciliate the conversation, 1 asked the servant, Who is
feelings of Christians, while at fhe same ! talking in the next room?' ' It is the Presi
dent, sir.' 'Is anybody with him? No
sir. he is readincr the Bible.' 4 Is that his
his second Inaugural, on the fourth of last ' habit so early in the morning ?' 4 Yes sir,

ances and sublime language, which will live
as lone: as the English laniruarre shall benr.-
ken. Such truthful sayings will go forth
from the Chief Magistrate of a great people
to break asunder the fetters of slavery
throughout the world. His name through
all coming time will b.; associated with that
most important of all his State Documents
his Emancipation Proclamation. It may
well be compared with the Imperial Ukase of
the Emperor Alexander, giving liberty to
twenty millions of liussian serfs. From the
time and circumstances under which it was
issued it must ever bo viewed as marking
the transition point from slavery to freedom",
in the history of the Republic of America.
I cannot stop to dwell upon Mr. Lincoln's
eiiurts and labors in behalf of the slaves and
the colored people of America. It was nn.
b!e and philanthropic, and it doubtless .if.
forded him unfeigned pleasure, during the
latter months of his eventful life, to learn,
in so many ways, that they appreciated his
services. This vas apparent when he re
ceived a copy of the Holy Bible from the
loyal colored jeopIe of Baltimore, as a token
of respect and gratitude. They hailed him
as the friend of universal Freedom." It
never will be known in time how many mil
lions of earnest prayers went up for " Massa
Linkum " from the Uncle Tom cabins scat
tered all over the Slave States, from the Po
tomac to the l'io Grande. Those sincere
but enslaved people took hold of the arm that
sustained the universe. America stands
forth to-day disenthralled and saved, not
merely by the achievements of our noble
soldiers and the masterly statesmanship of
our Cabinet Ministers, Senators and Repre
sentatives, but there was a power behind all
these outward manifestations. That power
was prayer the prayers, too, of the poor.
bays the son of Sirach, " A prayer out of a
poor mans mouth reacheth to the ears of
God, and His judgment corneth speedily."
" He will hear the prayer of the oppressed."
"The praver of thehurnble pierceth the
clouds, and till it come nigh he will not
be comforted, and will not depart till the
Most High shall behold to judge righteously
ana execute ludfrment " .Mr. Lincoln rr-
m . - - - "-ww
ognized that power of prayer, as I have al
ready shown, when he left his home for
the White House at Washngton.
How intensely interesting the fact that
while he was thus occupied with the great
and momentous affairs of thirty millions of
people of whom four or five millions were
in open rebellion, and a million more were
girded as soldiers, yet even amidst all these
cares he did not neglect the poor who were his
neighbors, as the following incident will show:
A newspaper correspondent from Chicago
one day dropped in upon Mr. Lincoln, and
found him busy counting greenbacks. "This,
sir," said the President, in his cheerful way,
' is something out of my usual line ; but a
President of the United States has a multi
plicity of duties not specified in the Consti
tution or Acts of Congress. This is one of
them. This money belongs to a poor negro,
who is porter in one of the Departments,
(the Treasury) who is at present ill with the
small-pox. He is now in the Hospital, and
could not draw his pay because he could not
sign his name. I have leen at considerable
trouble to overcome the difficulty and get it
for him, and have at length succeeded in
rutting red tape, as your newspaper men say.
I am now dividing the money and putting
by a portion labeled, in an envelope, with
my own hands, according to his wish." Such
unostentatious acts of kindness need no com
ment. Our Savior said, when upon earth.
" And whosoever shall give to drink unto one
of these little ones a cup of cold water only
in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto
you, he shall in no wise lose his reward."
I doubt not that the good man is now reap
ing his reward in glory for befrft-nding the
poor colored porter who could not write his
name sick with the small-pox in the Hospi
tal. It is an interesting fact that the Amer
ican citizen at home and abroad, however
humble his lot, was not forgotten by him.
When it was reported at Washington through
the correspondence of our Minister, to Mr.
Seward, that a sailor had been ill-treated at
the Marquesas Islands, Mr. Lincoln imme
diately directs that five hundred dollars in
gold be devoted to the purchase of presents,
to be distributed among Hawaiian Missiona
ries and others who had rescued the unfor
It is an interesting fact that the very last
public address which Mr. Lincoln ever made,
March 17th, was in reference to colored sol
diers being employed by the rebels. He
remarked that he Hoped they. would try the
experiment ! In all his efforts in behalf of
the colored people of America, he has en
deavored to manage the subject with an en
lightened regard to the highest Christian
duty to his country and to God. Having
shown that Mr. Lincoln was actuated as a ;
public officer by Christian principle, 1 am
full y confident that he was truly an experi
mental Christian, one whose Christianity did
not rgin and end in a mere formal acknowl
edgment of Divine Providence. The follow
ing incident is reported by the Rev. Mr. Ad
ams, a Presbyterian minister of Philadelphia.
He was on a visit to Washington, and had
mzAe an appointment to call upon the Pres
ident at the White House, at five o'clock in
the morning. Says Mr. Adams, " Morning
came, and I hastened my toilet and found
myself at a quarter to five in the waiting
room of the President. I asked the usher if
I could see Mr. Lincoln. He said I could
not. But I have an engagement to meet
beautiful an instance of one who followed our
Savior's devotional habit, who, "in the morn
ing, rising up a great while before day,"
went out and prayed.
' Pfjyr ar-l?r.i ojTi heiw-n. lets Uwn a frfam
f K'ictj on the conirrratfi knur
Of laan. ia audieuoe with the leiry :"
The following incident, however, sets forth
Mr. Lincoln's views upon the question of
vital godliness, in the very strongest light :
Several months before his ever-to-be-lamented
death, a gentleman called upon him on busi
ness. After the business was closed and
they were about to part, the gentleman said
to the President, " On leaving home a friend
requested me to ask Mr. Lincoln whether he
loved Jesus." The gentleman makes the
following report : " The President buried
his face in his handkerchief, turned away
and wept." lie then turned and said, " When
I left home to take the chair of state I re
quested my countrymen to pray for me. I
was not then a Christian. When mv son
died the severest trial of my life I was
not a Christian. But when I went to Get
tysburgh, and looked upon the graves of our
dead heroes who had fallen in defense of
their country, I then and there consecrated
myself to Christ. 1 do lore Jesus."'' This
simple and touching confession needs no
comment. It opens to the world the heart
and religious experience of the good man.
The people felt that he was honest in all his
dealings with them, and so he was equally
honest with himself and Gou. These few
simple utterances, welling up from the depths
of 4n"s heart, and accompanied with tear?.
will ever be cherished by Christians of every
name and sect as the most precious sayings
of his life. They touch the tenderest chord
in the Christian's heart. Christians of every
name will ever regard him as a brother be
loved, but departed, and when thinking of
him as departed the language of the Burial
Service will not be inappropriate ; " It hath
pleased Almighty God, in His wise Provi
dence to take out of this world the soul of
our deceased Brother!"
Think not, my hearers, that I have brought
forward these facts and incidents in the life
of our lamented President, because I think it
requires an argument in the style of special
pleading to prove his adherence to the prin
ciples of Christianity and the doctrines of
the New Testament. No, his Christian, as
well as his public and political character, is
known and read of all men. With him
there was no reserve or concealment. His
character was perfectly transparent. His
faults as well as his virtues were equally ap
'Ami e'-u his foiling leaaM to virtue's siJe."
He went to the theatre on
the telegraph informs us, because he wished
to please his frienJs and not disappoint the
people, who were expecting the presence of
the people's wrath ! Mr. Lincoln could not
execute that wrath! He found it. from the
overflowing kindness of his nature, almost
impossible to punish the guilty. Perhaps
there was no trait of his character to which
his enemies took more exception, and over
which his friends more deeply mourned. It
sometimes seriously embarrassed the regular
administration of justice. The officers of
the army and the-Government said it was
useless to arrest offenders and traitors, for
Mr. Lincoln would pardon them. At the last
meeting of the Cabinet, held only the day
before his death, Mr. Lincoln expressed his
" His life was gfntle ; and the -!i:in nta
So mixed iu him thai Nature tnitfht stand up
And say to all the world, This u-us a man."
In turning our thoughts from a contempla
tion of his character to our bleeding coun
try, the question forces itself upon every
thoughtful mind, what will be the effect of
Abraham Lincoln's assassination upon the
Nation ? Our latest dates afford us, as yet,
no facts by which we can satisfactorily an
swer tnis question. 1 lme must determine.
Our minds must for the present find consola
tion in dwelling upon the great truth that
God lives and reigns, and that He is able and
" will make the wrath of man to praise Him."
We may also recall to mind some of those
pages of history wherein somewhat similar
events are recorded. When Brutus and his
fellow-assassins smote down Caesar in the
Senate at Rome, they supposed that with
Cavsar's death Caesar's influence would no
longer be felt. They were disappointed.
Caesar disappeared, but, exclaims Cicero,
"All the acts of Caesar's life, his writings,
his words, his promises, his thoughts, are
more powerful after his death than if he
were still alive." So I trust, and doubt not,
it will be with the life, writings, words, prom
ises, thoughts of Abraham Lincoln. His
blood has stamped an impress upon these
which will immeasurably increase their value
throughout all coming time.
When the hired assassin, Balthazar Ge
rard, brought to an untimely end the event
ful life of William the Silent, Prince of Or
ange, on the 10th of July, 15S1. Philip II.,
all the enemies of civil and religious lib-
determination to deal in the most liberal man
ner with the rebellious States. As it has
been well remarked, The great, capacious,
manly heart of Abraham Lincoln was gen
erous enough to have embraced all within the
forgiveness of its loving nature, and in their
madness they have killed him." The best
friend of the rebels was assassinated bv one
of themselves, and no doubt if he could have
again spoken he would have prayed in the
language of our Savior on the Cross, " Fath
er forgive them, they know not what they
The event to which your attention has now
been called will not pass into oblivion and be
forgotten. It was not done in a corner, but
the crime was perpetrated, as it were, in the
presence of a gazing crowd of spectators in
finitely larger than that gathered in the the
ater where it took place. Abraham Lincoln
was assassinated on the world's wide stage.
There was a great cloud of witnesses. Now
what shall be its influence upon the Nation
and the world, we know not now, but we
shall know hereafter. It will be overruled
for good. How unspeakably thankful we all
should be that he was spared thus long to the i
Nation, even to see a virtual ending of the j
rebellion. God permitted this stunning blow
to fall for the accomplishment of some wise
purpose. I do believe that in after years and
ages it will be seen to have been necessary
for bringing about the final triumph of jus
tice and truth, and the punishment of the
guilty. For a season clouds and darkness
may surround the Throne of God and envel
ope His plans and purposes, but ere Ion" '
He will make all clear and plain. If we are !
watchful and take the word of God for our f
gftide. we shall see the dark clouds revealing j
a rainbow of glorious promise. I am confi- !
dent that a brightand glorious future is open-
ing before our country. Let us be hopeful. J
Great results must follow from these tragic !
events of war and commotion. Surelv we i
have witnessed enough to make us trustful
! and confiding. It seems to be a law or nrin-
. sf , , . . i C1P1,? which God observes 111 his management ;
that fatal mght of nations as wel, illdividlla,Sf thatb when j
He would bestow some signal favor He pre
pares the way by severe chastisements.
Surely I think we may hope that God has
great good in store for that people when he
shall have chastised them for that great sin
of slavery. That must be removed before the
millennium come and the Gospel shall
everywhere triumph. In the appropriate
language of Longfellow, I would exhort you,
" Look not mournfully upon the past; it
comes not back again. Wisely improve the
present ; it is thine. Go forth and meet the
shadowy future, without fear and with a
manly heart." Let us not go forth, however,
trusting in an "arm of flesh," but in God,
our Savior and Deliverer, most fully believ
ing the sentiment of the text, What I do

erty, imntrined that with the death of the
Prince of Oranpe would end his usefulness.
But O, how disappointed were these men !
In the beautiful language of Motley, "The
Prince was entombed amid the tears of a
whole nation. Never was a more extensive,
unaffected and legitimate sorrow felt at the
death of any human being. As long as he
lived he was the guiding star of a whole
brave nation, and when he died the Uttlp
children cried in the streets." The Com
monwealth which William had liberated
forever from Spanish tyranny continued to
exist as .1 great and flourishing Republic
during more than two centuries, under the
successive stadtholderates of his sons and
descendants. So I doubt not a similar re
sult will follow the assassination of the il
lustrious man whose most unexpected death
we now lament. He died tbe martyr to Lib
erty. He was assassinated by the hand of
Booth, but it was negro-chattle slavery
which nerved that arm and prompted that
l)asest of crimes in the annals of nations.
This was the crowning act of the slavehold
ers' rebellion. Sumter was fired upon on the
12th of April, 1S61, Booth shot President
Lincoln on the 14th of April, 1565. The
same bad animus that first struck down the
flag in '61 fired the assassin's bosom when
he smote down the President, Commander-
in-Chief of all the military and naval forces
of the Republic. No powers of metaphysical I
analysis can separate the two. Perhaps it
was needed that this crime of crimes should '
be perpetrated to arouse the minds of the j
American people to the awful enormity of i
the crime of slavery and treason. The deed !
has been accomplished, and henceforth and
forever, in the minds of all loyal Americans
and lovers of liberty throughout the world, a i
stigma has been fastened upon the crime
of slavery and treason which can never be
wiped away. However much we ma pity 1
the unfortunate dupes of the leaders of that j
rebellion, the deeds of the instigators and j
leaders can never be palliated, for their crimes ;
all culminated in Booth's assassination of !
Abraham Lincoln. How the perpetrator of
that crime shall be punished remains to be
seen, but woe be unto those who arouse the
wrath of a nation of thirty millions of peo
