Sermon Preached. fcjp-'R'rr. T": BrMs,
of Pawnee Cicy, at Falrvlew Churcb,
'Sabbath, Jamt 19th.
Our text on the present occasion
will be found in First Thes8.,2d, chap.
2()th verse. "For Ye are our glory and
God works upon a different plan to
man. Men, when undertaking any
thing of great importance, seek the
aidr counsel aud advice of great men
in order as they suppose to succeed.
So in any great enterprise, underta
ken by men, they invariably- pursue
this course. We see this in every
day life. The motto of the world
seems to be, first j to get the great and
those in authority Interested in their
scheme, and they are then sure of se
curing the many ; and hence, success,
as a consequence, must follow.
God. works upon a different plan al
together from this. He has chosen
tho weak things of this world to con
found and overcome the strong. Tho
foolish things to confound tho wise,
rnthe economy of. salvation, he has'
chosen man a weak, frail, imperfect'
being as he is, to plant hischurch and!
establish his gospel, and proclaim it
to earth's remotest bounds. Hence,;
the commission to his deseiples : Go'
yo into all the world and preach my
gospel, &c. Again: Go and teach
all nations, baptising them in the
name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost. I am with.
you always, even unto the end. This
was to the Jews a stumbling block,.

cations in life ; to lay their all upon
the altar, and devote their lives to the
But are they prepared for this great
work of winning souls. They are not
men of great literary attainments.
They are simply common sense men,
chosen from thu market place, the re
ceipt of custom, the sea shore,' 4b&
Can they overcome Jewish prejudice?
overcome Gentile philosophy and win
men to the cros? Hear Christ speak
inn: to his disciples after His resurrec
tion: Tarry yeat Jerusalem until ye
are endured with power from on high!
That power come on the day of Penti
cost. It fell on them. It sat on them.
It inspired them. And Peter, the
firsherman, tells the story of the
cross, and three thousand were con
verted. And now with this power,
the go out everywhere preaching
Christ, and wherever they went they
overcome error, not by their much
learning, but the story of the cross.
And they even reached proud Cesar's
household and made converts there.
Oh ! for this same power to rest down
upon the ministry and church now.
The whole world would shake, totter
and fall under the preaching of the
cross. ObJ for such preaching to
day. I sometimes almost wish for thje
days of old, when the Methodist
Preachers would take their horse and
saddle-bags, their library of books,
consisting of the Bible and Hymn
book, Baxter's Call and a few others,
and with, these swim rivers, cross
mountains, traverse forest, sometimes
on horseback and sometimes on foot,
leaving behind father and mother,
brother and sister, and perhaps wife
and children to carry the bread of
life to the perishiug few living on the
Paul was such a preacher as this,
thoagh learned in all the Jewish cus
toms and tradition, and religion of
the Jews, understanding all the Knot
ty problems of Jewish theology,
brought up at the feet of Gamaliel,
he was doubtless prepared to teach
aiid defend the Jewish religion. But
was ho qualified for this great work?
He had seal, but without truo knowl
edge. '"'And not until he'Is struck
down by God on his way to Damas;
cus ; not until it is said of him : Be
hold he prayeth not until the scales
fall from his eyes. And Saul, of Tar
sus, becoiries Paul, the apostle: Is he
prepared for his work ? But now he
goes out, the great missionary of the
world, and his texts are We teach
not ourselves, but Christ Jesus, the
Lord and ourselves your servants for,
Jesus' sake. God forbid that I-should
glory save in thecross, &c v
God grant us.such preachers to-,day,
as will get out of self and into Christ ;
that will tell of ,the crucified and
bear in their arms of faith, souls to
the great cleansing fountain Christ.
See Paul baptised with this power,
crossing oceans, and rivers, and
mountain to win souls to Christ. Ha
had been to Thessalonica preaching,
and had ipade some converts there jto
whom he addressed tho text, not in a
spirit of boasting or vainiglory but
rejoicing that in the economy f sal
vation, .God had consented to use him
as a means in their 'conversion." No
doubt Paul looked back at all of this,
work, when in Heathen Borne he
said : I am now ready to be offered
op ; I have fought the good fight, &c.
No wonder he rejoiced in the conver
sion of' men, for ye, those-who I have
been instrumental In saving, are now
and forever Will be my gloryaad joy.
Oh 1 that the mantle of Paul might
fall on us:
We have chosen this subject 'in
view of the present occasion ; and, in
improving the subject, we will briefly
notice: 1st. The character of those
who become the joy of faithful min
isters. Certainly not all who hear the
word, of the many wo have to say,
who hath ,belieyed , our report? Some
are regularin their attendance, ujion
tho means of grace, Godra, house.
Pay close attention seemingly Co 'all
the minister ig saying, almost inside
the kingdom, yet halting still under
cided. Thus they remain for yeare
and perhaps for lifo, wrapped up- 'in
their camel security. Oh ! that the
hearers might also be doere of the
word. ut tHe glory and joy of faith
ful ministers la derived from those
who receive God's word as truth, and
obey it. Very 'few seenxtb appreciate"
the truthfulness of God's word, while
they may give the cold consent of the
mind to its truth. Verv few -feel the
.power of that truth. It isthe word of-
V.l. Tl'in ' a - -,1 - -r
U.UIU.. jLvaa tuo irue eavinu: uunsi
says Ijun the tway,;i;he, truth and tho I
life. Again: the law came by Moses,
but erace and truth by Jesus Christ.
It is not fiction-or a cunningly de
vised fable. It came to us with evi
dence of truth stamped with divinity
itself, from him who said The word
of (the Lord endureth forever. It is
truth without the mixture of error.
Then accept it as truth; believe it:
open your hearts and receive. Ana
it may then be said of you : Thy
word have X hid in my heart that 1
might not sin against thee. Obey its
teachings; fulfill all its requirements,
and the truth will make you free.
Such characters give joy to the
faithful minister in proportional they
discover a temper of heart correspon
ding with the gospel, aud the mind
that was in Christ. Humility, meek
ness, long suffering, forbearing one
toward another, seeking to be imbued
with the spirit of the gospel ; take it
as our counselor, our lamp, our guide
into all truth. Borrow your light
Ithen from the-pages of divine truth,
ana- you win not waiK in uarRness.
Learn from it your duty to God and
to yourself, and your fellow man.
Let its light penetrate your very soul,
and breath its atmosphere every day ;
and remember the words of tho apos
tle, as regards the spirit, practice and
customs of the world Come out
from among them and be ye separate,
saith the Lord, and touch not the un
clean thing, and ye shall be called my
sons and daughters, saith the Lord
Almighty. Oh! bow it rejoices the
heart of a faithful minister to discov
er the temper in those who have been
converted under his labor. Oh! live
the spirit of the gospel, there is power
When they love the means of grace,
love God's house, and can say I was
glad when they said unto me Let us
go up to the house of the Lord, long
ing after spiritual enjoyments. I
would rather bo a door-keeper in the
house' of my God than to dwell in the
teuts of wickedness. It Is always en
couraging to a faithful minister to see
his members all present at the means 1
of grace, and nothing will add to the
growth of young converts moro than
punctual attendance upon tho means
of grace. And some of our members
.ought to blush at the exampel they
ate placing before those who recently
Sometimes we find a member that,
won't go to meetmjr only during re
vival seasons, and then continue
awhile and fall back again into the)
same old way of living ; or, perhaps,
quarterly meeting is coming on, and
they come out to that, but too late for
love-feast. And when the public
collection is taken up, behold, they
have forgotten to bring their money.
It is aHiome. I would rather preach
to half, a dor.cn who make It a busi
ness tou be there, than preach to a
house full of such characters. They
remind me of certain birds, that come
and go certain seasons of the year. I
thank God I belong to a church that
will deal with such persons, and if
they wont come to church, will turn
them out. They are so many dead
Weights on any church.
Now let me say to those young con
verts ; don't think we won't niias you;
we will, and our hearts will be pained,
Don't let anything detain you from
the house of God, if you can possibly
come. I thank God I eee before me
to-day, those who embraced Christ
last winter. Oh ! let me say there is
power here In your presence. As
iron sbarpeneth iron, so does the
countenance of our brethren and sis
ters encourage us. Do not forsake the
assembling of yourselves together as
the manner of some-is. Don't com
mence' to frame excuses, for when
once you commence this, it will' be
easy work then for the adversary.
- When they work for the lory of
God and the peace and prosperity of
the church. In union tnero ija
strength. Behold how good aud how
pleasant it is for brethren to dwell to
gether in unity. The religion of
Christ is unity. It unites families,
neighborhoods, counties, States, King
doms, continent to continent, earth to
heaven, and where thespirit of Christ
is, there is peace; no contention.
But we hear some in the church al
ways complaining, and I sometimes
think they would complain if fioJbr
tunatoas to arrive in heaven, if it is
possible for God to save a grumbeler.
Just listen at them talk awhile. They
haven'tgot the preacher they wanted;
the worst man in the country is in for
leader, and we ought to have another
Stewart, and they imagine a thousand
things that never was and probably
never will be. They are elements of
disorder' in tho church, when they
ought to be so many wedges, closing
up the breeches made in the church
from its enemies. They are, in short,
professional grumbelers and croakers,
a misery to themselves and a plague
spotupon the church. They remind
merof a hand-organ, that can play bo
many tuues and th.en- wind up and
play the same old times over again,
grinding out the faults of others, but
never see .their own imperfections.
Now, itsthe work of the church to
help the minister; 'work to hold Up
ins nanas, msteaa- ot pulling nim
down. I Would rather figh't all the
lions Buuyan saw than to have one of
these professional grumblers hanging
to my coat taiL Nothii.g will rejoice
a minister's heart more than for him
to. feel he has your sympathy and
hearty co-orerntion in this work. Oh !
may the same peace Christ left with
his disciples rest upon, and may the
spirit of the"great Trince of Peace
fire your souls. I

ingf rom the Lord ; by withholding
what rightly belongs toiiis church".'
A narrow contracted, stingy soul, will
never devise liberal things. Always
afraid of doing too much, as though
the gospel was indebted to them. I
am often reminded of the mau in the
Idvefcast." He arose and said he
thanked Got for a free salvation. He
had. been 'a-member of, the church
twenty-five years, 'and only cost him
twenty-five cdnts. "Of such I would
say as the presiding Elder said to him
T,God haye mercy on your old, stin
gy soul, brother." I think if we
would train our children right, we
could overcome this difficulty, form
our Sunday 'Schools into Missionary
Schools. Let the children bring their
littte mitennd cast it into this general
fund for the'suppor!. of the gospel. "" I
think.if we would practice this more,
our children would grow up with
large souls, ready to devise liberal
fhingB'for the church. And a liberal
soul will be made fat.
' Again let-me urge you: If you
want your minister with you without
fear; if you want to be his glory and
joy, seeto his finances ; for my expe
rience is, when a man is crippled
here, he cannot teach with success.
Especially will he-fail in preaching to
a congregation that are in the habit
of sponging their preaching. I sometimes-
go into book stores, and I see
hanging up, a poster with a sponge
attached to it "don't sponge your
reading." And if I had to preach to
a congregation that would not pay, I
would put up such a poster in the
church "don't sponge your preach
ilhg." I don't believe I am preaching
(to any such to-day ; in fact, I know
I'never preached to a more liberal
people. God bless yon for it. You
will remember, doubtless, from this
desk, last winter, I thanked you for
your liberality. But even then, I did
not look at the gift so much as the
principle that actuated you, namely :
thejoye'forthe gospel and a desire to
BUppeptUfc-itt your- midst. Then I
would say to young -and old, if you
want to be the glory and joy of your
minister, support him. He will love
and will preach
witn more power
Grow in grace. Oh ! how it pains
the heart of a faithful minister to see
one face1 absent. I-have heard, since
coming down to preach for you, that
it was feared two or three had fallen
back. Oh ! how my heart was pain
ed. I thought, can I give one up to
be lost ; will one go down to everlest-
ing night. God forbid. But to those
who are present, lam bound to thank
God, brethren, that your faith grow
eth exceedingly, and your charity
aboundeth more and moro toward
each other. God bless you. Continue
to grow in grace. Approximate near
er God, nearer Christ, nearer the
cross, nearer heaven all the time, so
you can say every day now is our
salvation nearer than when we first
believed. And after awhile the work
will be -finished, and the
put on, with shoutings of grace!
grace! unto God. Seeing wearo en
compassed about with so great a cloud
of witnesses, let us lay aside every
weight aud the sins that doth so eas
ily Deset us, and run the race set be
fore us, looking into Jesus, who is the
author and finisher of our faith.
Why do faithful ministers rejoice in
such persons? Because, from their
conversion they derive a proof of
their own fidelity; the truth God
will honor, although the medium of
conveying that truth is bad. A per
son might preach that never knew
what religion is in the heart, yet he
might so present the truth of the gos
pel as to do good, yet good does not In
this case honor the instrument, but
his truth. But I am Inclined to

"What's in a Name T
New York, Juno 13, 1870.
Editor Advertiser :
Your columns have often contained,
in common with thereat of mankind,
the oft repeated and never answered
conundrum "what's in a name."
And though we huve good authority
for the belief that "arose by any oth
er name would smell as sweet," I
nave great doubts whether we are
justified in taking the same liberty
with the "four general rules" of arlth
matic; consequently, I feel called up
on to bring your compositor to ac
count for substituting tho process of
'manipulation" for that of "multipli
cation," in the quotations from the
poem as delivered in Fanuiel Hall,
Boston f on the occasion of the cele
bration of the Fifteenth Amendment.
Reference to.your files will show you
the lines as' follows :
"Had God manipulated
My three score years by Ills eternity."
If Instead you had printed :
Had, God multiplied, da, &K,
it would have conveyed tho Idea.
How it does bring up the old days
to sit down for a quiet chat with the
Advertiser. How the old familiar
names bring out the old familiar faces,
fresh as though ten years of revolu
tion and change had not intervened
since we used to be all candidates to
gether for some territorial, county, or
town honors. And as an old friend
of mine up the Nemaha used to say
"How things have changed since
What would your farming friends
about Omaha have said in those days

fences and buildings, with reference
to the right of way, for the Palace
Car Express to San Francisco. And
who can paint the look of horror
.which would have come over the

one of his stumping tours through

shown him tho present roll of the

among other items from Nebraska,
T. W. Tipton.
An occasional half hour with the
Advertiser is to mo almost like a visit
with a host of good men and true,
whom I sincerely hope before many
years to clasp by the hand ; but till
then, I must content myself with
greeting from a distance, as I do most
heartily here and now :. Furnas, Hill,
Hoover, Carson, Stewart, McPherson
and too many to give all their names.
Hoping to see you all before long, I
remain your old friend,
C. E. L. Holmes.
Mr. Tipton's Speech on tho Central
Branch Pacific IU K. Bill.
Mr. President: I wish tho Senate
was full at the present time, for I can
in ajvery few words say all that I de
sire to say, and all that you need to
know in regard to this question ; and
if you will give me your attention you
shall have it.
The place of my residence is Brown
vllle, on the Missouri river; and we
are projecting a railroad west to Den
ver, over a line of six hundred miles.
In .that part of Nebraska no land
grant has ever been given for the pur
pose of aiding our people to build a
road where settlement has been es
tablished since the organization of the
territory. This road of ours running
from Brownvllle westward will cut
across what is supposed to be the con
templated' route of the Central Branch
Pacific, which, leaving Kansas, will
traverse the central part of our State,
going" oif its way to join tho Union
That Central Branch has always-
been an object of desire with me and
with the Immediate constituency I
represent; because while Omaha, the
residence of my colleague, has been
supplied by tho government with a
road without her people ever cpntrib
uting to the stock of that road, my
neighbor and myself havtf to vote
taxes upon' -ourselves that we know
not-when we shall ever get clear of for
the purpose .of building a railroad
running back upon the prairie, with
out a land grant from you for the first
one hundred miles certainly, and
thereive hope that the Cen tral Branch
ort its way to the Union Pacific, will
allow us a western outlet, a western I
connection. But Omaha would pre
fer undoubtedly that tho Union Pa
cific should not be tapped so often.
The Burlington i Missouri River road
will tap it at Fort Kearney; perhaps
the St- Joseph & Denver road will tap
It at Ft. Kearney ; perhaps the Cen
tral1 Branch will come to Fort Kear
ney; and that alarms Governor But
ler, atLIncoln,because he feels that
if -the people have so many facil
ities for getting out and going to the
market at St. Louis, some' petty vil
lage of his on the frontier will notrbo
como a mammoth and overshadowing
We want the opportunity to tap
some road westward, and the Central
Branch will answer our purpose, in
order that away back in that inacces
sible country, where the Indians have
recently been killing our sparse popu
lation, the people shall not be com
pelled to go to Omaha, or Plottsmouth,
or Nebraska City, or Brownvillo
where I reside, but they sh&B have,
an opportunity of following tho chan
nels of the river that runs down to
"St. Louis, and going to-Si. Louis if
I stand here for the rights of the
settler In the back country, and tho'
I would like to see him bring all his
produce to my town, running in on
the Brownvllle road, yet perhaps one
hundred and . fifty or two hundred
miles back he will prefer to get off and
run down to St. Louis, instead of
coming to our warehouses on his way
to Chicago. I say I can stand upon
that proposition before the people of
Nebraska; but if they ask me to fight
against every improvement of tho
western country where the Central
Branch Pacific runs, I will not take
away from the future population of
those rich Yalleys the privilege of get
ting out southward for the simple
gratification of building up towns
away off east of them on the Missouri
Then the cry was that there -wpuld
be a conflict betweon this Brownvllle
road running to Denver and the Cen
tral joranuu. jl no quesuon was now
much of a conflict? Why, when we
come Into the Republcan Valley, go
ing westward, they will be running
across tho Republican Valley going
northward. We wero afraid they
would want to run westward in that
valley, and we therefore said to them,
"Gentlemen, we want you to stay in
that valley no more than for the space
of twenty-flve miles;" and they havo
agreed with us that I may offer that
amendment to their bill, and when
they cut across our road they will not
stay longer in the valley than twenty
five miles, and that is all I ask of
The next question was what about
the lands where we cross each othor?
Our bill provided for tho odd num
bered sections, and it was perfectly
satisfactory with me that they should
not ask for tho odd numbered sections,
and I had no quarrel with them on
Now let me say ono word In regard

whom I have lived from the year I
went pioneering in that country, are
the officers of the Brownvllle & Fort
Kearney road. Their representative,
with a power of attorney to represent
them here, la in the gallery of this
Senate. I represent their Intorest on
this floor, and I say they have no war
with the Central Branch Pacific rail
road. The president of the Midland
Pacific, which will form a junction
with us in the back country on our
way to Denver, is In this city, and has
no war against that road. Ho desires
a fair chance in crossing that road, or
where they cross our line, whichever
may bo the first line built.
Then, I say, that I cannot allow
either my collegue or any gentleman
to stand here and declare that he rep

Platte country., I am ths representa

should be permitted to build a road
through the State of Nebraska! Can
