those " political discourses," of which om
Northern Domucrals have such II horror-when:
inven by one of the opposite vr?ty of thinking.
The sermon is a curiosity, and wo wish we had
space to lay it nt length bfforo our renders. A

1. That thc cause of tile South was just.
'2. 'Thai slavery, for w hich they; fought, was
3. "That tho rai li and file of the [nhcl army
deserved all pruise. end to be ?heldin everlast

tion of a new policy, shall yet bs the conquer

The speaker fittingly closed with it eulogy on
Andre Johnson, ile styled him the greatest
President since Washington, who had iii vol
oped a character os unexpected mid ns illustri
ous as Louis Napoleon himself. ?>*.'Nttpolcon in
Europe," snit! he, "und Johnson in X nt erica
the t wo greatest men of the age." The rebels
who made up thia congregation canto down
with thundering applause at this passage. Tin
unexpected character that Johnson lins devel
oped has endeared him beyond even ibo Buller
