Brooklyn, March 3. Dr. Talmage
preached in the Brooklyn Tabernacle this
morning on the subject, "Shall America be
Eeserved for Americans?" As his sermons
are now translated in every language of
Europe and many languages of Asia, in his
audiences may be seen persons from many
different nations. After an exposition of the
scripture be gave out the hymn:
Arm of the Lord, awake! awake!
Put on thy strength, the nations shake!
Text, Acts xvii, 2G: "And hath made of one
blood all nations." That is. if for some reason
general phlebotomy were ordered, and stand
ing In a row were an American, an Englishman,
a Scotchman and an Irishman, a Frenchman, a
German, a Norwegian, and Icelander, a Span
iard, an Italian, a Russian and representatives
of all other nationalities bared their right arm
and a lancet were stack into it, tho Wood let out
would have the same characteristics,! or It would
be red, complex, fibnne, globnline, chlorine
and containing sulphuric acid, potassium,
phosnhate of magnesia and so on, and Harvey
and Sir Astley Cooper and Richardson and
Zimmerman and Brown-Sequard and all the
scientific doctors, allopathic homeopathic, hy
dropathic and eclectic, would acree with Paul
as, standing on Mars Hill, his pulpit a ridge of
limestone rock 50 feet high and among the
proudest and most exclusive and undemocratic
people of the earth, he crashed Into all their
prejudices by declaring In the words of my
text that God had made "ol one blood ill na
tions." The countenance of the Ave races of the hu
man family may be different as a result of
climate or "education or habits, and the Malay
will have the projecting upper jaw. and the
Caucasian the oval face and small mouth, and
too Ethiopian the retreating forehead and
large lip, and the Mongolian the flat face of
olive hue, and the American Indian the copper
colored complexion, but the blood Is the same
and Indicates that they all had one origin and
that Adam and Eva were their ancestor and
why America was built.
I think God built this American continent
and organized this United States republic to
demonstrate the stupendous idea of the text.
A man in Persia ill alwa) s remain a Persian,
a man In Switzerland will always remain a
Snlss,a man in Austria will always remain an
Austrian, bnt all foreign nationalities coming
to America were intended to be Americans.
This land is the chemical laboratory where for
eign bloods are to be Inextricably mixed up
and race prejudices and race antipathies arc to
iterish, and this sermon is an ax by which I
lopeto help kill them. It is not hard for me
to preach such a sermon, because, although
my ancestors came to this country about 250
years aco, some of them came from Wales and
some from Scotland and some from Holland
and some from other lands and I am a mixture
of so many nationalities that I feel at home
with people from under every sky and have a
right to call them blood relations.
There are madcaps and patriotic lnnatics in
this country w ho are ever and anon crying out,
"America for Americans." Down with the
Germans! Down with the Irish! Down with
the Jews! Down with the Chinese! are in
come directions the popular cries, all of which
vociferations I would drown out by the full
organ of my text, while I null out the stops and
nut my foot on the pedal that will open the
loudest pipes, and run my fingers over all the
f onr banks ot ivory keys, playing the chant,
"God hath made of one blood all nations."
There are not five men in this audience, nor
five men in any audience to-day in America ex
cept it be on an Indian reservation, who were
not descended from foreigners if you go far
enough back. The only nativo Americans arc
the Modocs, the Shannecs, the Chippewas, the
Chcrokces, the Chickasaws, the Seminolcsand
snch like.. If the principle America only for
Americans be carried out, then you and 1 bavo
no right to be here and we had better charter
all the steamers and clippers and men-of-war
and yachts and sloops and get out of this
county as quick as possible. The Pilgrim
Fathers were all immigrants, the Huguenots
all immigrants. The cradle of most every one
of our families was rocked on the bank ot the
Cl de or the Rhine or the Shannon or the Seine
or the Tiucr.
A MISTAKEN CRY.
Had the watchword "America for Ameri
can;," been an early and successful cry, where
cow stand onr cities wcnld have stood Indian
wigwams, and canoes instead of steamers
would have tracked the lludfon and the Con
necticut: and, instead ot the Mississippi being
the main artery of the continent, it wonldhave
been only a trough for deer and antelope and
wild pigeons to drink out of. What makes the
cry of "America for Americans" the more ab
surd and the more inhuman is that some in this
country who themselves arrived herein their
boyhood or arrived here only one or two gen
erations DacK are joining in tne cry. scaped
from foreign despotisms themselves they say,
"Shut the door of escape for others." Getting
themselves on our shores in a life-boat from
the shipwreck saying. Haul tlio boat on the
beach ana let the rest of the passengers go to
tho bottom! Men who have yet on them a
Scotch or German or English or Irish brogue
crying out, America for Americans! What if
the native inhabitants of heaven, I mean the
angels, the cherubim, the seraphim born there,
should stand in the gate and when tbcysee us
coming up at the last should say: "Go back!
Heaven for lira Heavenians!"
Of course we do well not to allow foreign
nations to make this country a convict colony.
"We would have a wall built as high as heaven
and as deep as hell against foreign thieves,
pickpockets and Anarchists. We would not
let them wipe their feet on the map of the out
side door of Castle Garden. If England -or
Russia or Germany or France send here their
desperadoes to get clear of them, we would
have these desperadoes sent back in chains to
the places where they came from. We will not
hive America become the dumping place for
But you build up a wall at the Narrows before
New York harbor, or at tho Golden Gate before
San Francisco, and forbid the coming of the in
dnstriout and hard working and honest popula
tions of other lands who want to breathe the
air of our free institutions and get opportunity
for better livelihood, and it is only & question
of time when God will tumble that wall flat on
our own beads with the red hot thunderbolts
of His omnipotent indignation. You are a
father and you have five children. The parlor
Is the best room in your house.
A PARALLEL CASE.
Your son Philip says to the other four child
ren, "Now, John, you live in the small room in
the end of the ball and stay there; George, you
live in the garret and stay there: Mary, you
live in the cellar anil stay there; Fannie, you
live in the kitchen and stay tticre. I, Philip,
will take the parlor. It suits me exactly. I
like the pictures on the walk I like the lam
brequins at the windows. I like the Axmlnster
on the floor. Now I, Philip, propose to occupy
this parlor, and I command you to stay out.
The parlor only for Philippians." You, the
father, bear of this arrangement and what will
you dor You will get red in the face and say:
"John, come out of that small room at the end
of the ball; George, come down out of the gar
ret; Mary, come up from the cellar; Fannie,
come out of the kitchen and go into the parlor
or anywhere you choose; and Philip, for your
greediness and unbrotberly behavior, 1 put you
lor two hours in the dark closet under the
God is the father of the human race. He has
at least five sons, a North American, a South
American, a European, an Aslaticjand an Afri
can. The North American sniffs the breeze
and he says to his four brothers and sisters:
"Let the South American stay in South Amer
ica, let tbe European stay in Europe, let the
Asiatic stay in Asia, let the African star in Af
rica; but America is for me. I think it is the
parlor of tbe whole earth. I like its carpet of
grass and its upholstery of tbe front window,
namely the American sunrise, and the uphol
stery of tbe back window, namely, the Ameri
can sunsst. Now I want you all to stay out
and keep to your places." I am sure the Fa
ther of the whole human race would hear of it
and chastisement would come, and whether by
earthquake or flood, or drought or heaven
darkenine swarms of locust and grasshopper,
or destroying angel of pestilence, God would
rebuke our selfishness as a nation, and eay to
the four winds of heaven:
This world is My house, and the North
American is no more My child than is tbe
Sooth American and the European and the
Asiatic and tho African. And I built this
'world for all the children, and tho parlor is
then and ail is theirs." For, let me say,
whether we will or not, the population of other
lands will come here. There are harbors all
tbe way from Baffin's bay to Galveston, and if
you shut 0 gates there will be other, gates
unguarded. And if yon forbid foreigners
from coming on the steamers they Mill take
sailing vessels. And if you forbid them com
ing on sailing vessels tbey will come in boats.
And if you will not let them come in boats
they will come on rafts.
WII.Ii SWIM ACROSS.
And if you will not allow wharfage to the
raft they will leave it outside Sandy Hook and
swim for lrce America. Stop them? Y'ou
might as well pass a law forbidding a swarm of
summer bees from lighting on the clover top,
or pass a law forbidding the tides of the At
lantic to rise when the moon puts under it
silver grappling hooks, or a law that the noon
day sun should not irradiate the atmosphere.
They have come. They are coming now. They
will come. And if 1 bad a voice loud enough
to be heard across tbe seas I would put it to
the ctniost tension and cry. Let them come!
You stingy, selfish, shriveled up, blasted souls
who sit before your silver dinner plate piled up
with breast of roast turkey incarnadined with
cranberry, your fork full and your mouth full
and cramming down the superabundance till
your digestit e organs are terrorized, let the
millions of xour fellow men have at least the
But some of this cry, America for Americans,
may arise from an honest fear lest this land be
overcrowded. Such persons had better take
the Northern Pacific or Union Pacific or
Southern Pacific or Atlantic and Charlotte air
line or Texas and Santa Fe, and go a long jour
ney and find out that no more than a tenth
part of this continent is cultivated. If a man
with 100 acres of farm land should put all his
cultivation on one acre he would be cultivating
a larger ratio of his farm than onr nation is
now occupying of the national farm. Pour the
whole human race. Europe, Asia, Africa and
all the islands of the sea, into America and
there would be room to spare. All tbe Rocky
Mountain barrennessesandall the other Ameri
can deserts aro to be fertilized, and as Salt Lake
City and much of Utah once yielded not a blado
of grass now by artificial irrigation have be
come gardens, so a large part of this continent
that now is too poor to grow even a mullein
stalk or a Canada thistle, will through artificial
irrigation like an Illinois prairie wave with
wheat or like a Wisconsin farm rustle with
corn tassels. Bciide that, after perhaps a cen
tury or two more, when this continent is quite
well occupied, the tides of immigration will
turn the other way.
Politics and Governmental affairs being cor
rccted on the other side of the waters, Ireland
under different regulation turned into a gar
den will invite back another generation of
Irishmen, and the wide wastes of Russia
brought from under despotism will with her
own green fields invite back another genera
tion of Russians. And there will be hundreds
of thousands of Americans every year settling
on the other continents. And after a nnmber
of centuries, what then? Well, at that tlmn
some night a panther meteor wandering
throngh the heavens will put its paw on our
world and stop it, and putting its panther tooth
into the neck of its mountain range will shake
it lifeless as the rat terrier a rat. So I have no
more foar of America being overcrowded than
that the porpoises in the Atlantic ocean will
Become so numerous as to stop snipping,
A REAL BENEFIT.
It is through mighty addition of foreign pop
ulation to our native population that I think
God is going to fill this land with a race of peo
ple 9-3 per cent superior to anything the world
has ever seen. Intermarriage of families and
intermarriage of nations is depressing and
crippling. Marriage outside of one's own na
tionality and with another style of nationality
is a mighty gain. What makes the Scotch
Irish second to no pedigree for brain and
stamina of character, so that blood goes right
up to Supreme Court bench and to the front
rank in jurisprudence and merchandise and
art? Because nothing under heaven can be
more unlike than a Scotchman and an Irish
man and tbe descendants of these two con
joined nationalities, unless rum flings them, go
right to the tip top in everything.
All nationalities coming to this land the op-
Iiosites will all the while be affianced, and
"ranch and German will nnite and that will
stop all tho quarrel between them, and one
child they will call Alsace and the other Lor
raine. And hot-blooded Spaniards will unite
with cool-blooded Polaudcr. and romantic Ital
ian with matter-of-fact Norwegian, and 150
ears from now the race occupying this land
will be in stature, in purity of complexion, in
liquidity of eye, in gracefulness of poisei in
dome-like brow, in taste, in intelligence and in
morals so far ahead of anything now known on
either side tbe seas, that this last quarter of
the nineteenth century will seem to them like
the dark ages. Oh, then how they willlegislate
and banrain and pray and preach and govern!
This is the land where by the mingling of races
the race prejudice is to get its death blow.
How heaven feels about it we may conclude
from the fact that Christ, tho Jew, and de
scended from a Jewess, nevertheless provided
a religion for all races, and that Paul,
though a Jew, became the chief apostle of the
Gentiles, and that recently God has allowed to
burst in splendor upon tbe attention of the
world Hirsch, the Jew, who after giving ten
million dollars to Christian churches and hos
pitals, has called a committee of nations and
luruisbcd them with forty million dollars for
schools to elevate his race in France and Ger
many and Russia to higher Intelligence and
abolish, as he says, the prejudices against their
race; these fifty million dollars not given in a
last will and testament and at a time when a
maumust leave his money anyhow, but by
donation at 55 years of age and in good health,
utterly eclipsing all benevolence since tho
world was created. I must confess there was a
time when I entertained race prejudice, but,
tlianks to God, that prejudice has gone, and if
I sat in church and on one side of me there was
a black man and on the other side of me was
an Indian and before me "was a Chinaman and
behind me a Turk, I would be as happy as I am
now standing in the presence of this brilliant
audience, and I am as happy now as I can be
The sooner we get this corpse of race preju
dice buried, the healthier t, ill be our American
atmosphere. Let each one fetch a spade and
let us dig its grave clear on down deeper and
deeper till we get as far down as the center of
the earth and half way to China, butno further
lest it poison those living on tbe other side the
earth. Then into this crave let down the ac.
cursed carcass oi race prejudice and throw on
it all the mean things that have ever been said
and written between Jew and Gentile, between
Turk and Russian, between English andFrench,
between Monolian and anti-Mongolian, be
tween black and white, and put up over that
grave for tombstone some scorched and jagged
chunk of scoria; spit out by some volcanic
eruption and chisel on it for epitaph: "Here
lies tbe carcass of one who cursed the world.
Aged, near 6,000 j ears. Departed this life for
the perdition from whence it came. No peace
to its ashes!"
Now, in vie w of this subj ect, I have two point
blank words to utter, one suggesting what
foreigners ought to do for us, and the other
what we ought to do for foreigners. First, to
foreigners. Lay aside all apologetic air and
realize yon have as much right as any man who
was not only himself born here but his father
and his grandfather and great-grandfather be
fore him. Are yon an Enclishman? Though
during the revolutionary war your fathers
treated our fathers roughly, England has more
than atoned for that by giving to this country
at least two denominations of Christians, the
Church of England and the Methodist Church.
Witness the magnificent liturgy of the one and
the Wesleyan hallelujahs of the other. And
who shall ever pay England for what Shakes
peare and John Milton and Wordsworth and a
thousand other authors have done for America?
Are you a Scotchman? Thanks for John
Knox's Presbyterianism: tbe balance wheel of
all other denominations. And how shall Amer
icans ever pay your native land for what
Thomas Chalmers and Macintosh and Robert
Burns and Christopher North and Robert Mc
Cheyne and Candlish and Guthrie have done
Are you a Frenchman? We cannot forget
your Lafayette, who in the most desperate
time of our American revolution, New York
surrendered find our armies flying in retreat,
espoused our cause and at Brandywine and
Monmouth and Yorktcwn put all America
under eternal obligation. And we cannot for
get tbe coming to the rescue of our fathers
Rochambeau and bis French fleet with 6,000
armed men. Aro you a German? We have
not forgotten tbe eleven wounds through which
Baron DeEalb poured out his life blood at tbe
head of the Mar land and Delaware troops in
the disastrous battle at Camden, and after we
bare named our streets and our cities and
counties after him we have not paid a tittle of
what we owe Germany for his valor and self
sacrifice. FOREIGN HEBOES.
And what about Martin Luther, tbe giant
German who made way for religious liberty
for all lands and ages? Are you Polander?
How can we forget your brilliant Count Pu
laski, wbose bones were laid In Savannah
river after a mortal wonnd gotten while in tbe
stirrups of one of the fiercest cavalry charges
of the American Revolution? But with no
time to particularize I say, "All hail the men
and women of other lands who come here with
honest purpose!" Renounce all obligation to
foreign despots. Take tho oath of American
allegiance. Get out your naturalization pa
pers. Don't talk against our institutions, for
tho fact that rou came here and stay shows
that you like ours better than any other. If
you don't like them there are steamers going
out of our ports almost every day. and the fare
Is cheap, and, lest you should be detained for
parting civilities, I bid you goodbye now.
But if you like it here, then I charge you, at
tbe ballot box, in legislative hall, in churches
and everywhere be oat and out Americans.
Do not try to establish here the loose foreign
Sabbaths or transcendentalism spun into a re
ligion of mush and moonshine, or foreign lib
ertinism or that condensation of nil thievery,
sconndrclism, lust, murder and perdition
which in Russia is called Nihilism aud in
France called Communism and in America
called Anarchism. Unite with us in making
by the grace of God the 15,000,000 square miles
of America on both sides the Isthmus of
Panama the paradise of virtue and religion.
My other word snggesti what Americans
ought to do for foreigners. Bv all possible
means explain to them our institutions. Com
ing here, tbe vast majority of them know about
as much concerning republican nr'dcmocratlc
form of government as you in the United
States know about politics of Denmark or
France or Italy or Switzerland, namely
nothing. Explain to them that liberty in this
country means liberty to do right, bnt not lib
erty to do WTong.
Never in their presence say anything against
their native land, for.no matter bow much they
may have been oppressed there, in that native
laud there are sacred places, cabins or man
sions around whose doors they played,and per
haps somewhere there is a gravo into which
they would like, when life's toils are over, to
be let down, for It is mother's grave, and it
wonld be like going again into tbe loving arms
that first held them and against the bosom that
first pillowed them. My! myl how law down a
man must have descended to have no regard
for the place wbero bis cradle was rocked.
Don't mock their brogue or their stnmbling at
tempts at tbe hardest of all languages to learn,
namely, tho English language. I warrant that
they speak English, as well as you could talk
Scandinavian. Treat them in America as you
would like to be treated if for tbe sake of your
honest principles or a better livelihood for
yourself or your family you hail moved under
the shadow of Jungfrau, or the RIgi, or the
Giant's Causeway, or the Bohemia Forest, or
the Francoman Jura,
If they get homesick, as some of them are
suggest to them that God is as near to help
them here as he was near them before tbey
crossed tbe Atlantic, and that the soul's final
flight is less than a second whether from the
beach of tho Caspian sea or the banks of Lake
Erie. Evangelize their adults through tho
churches and their children through the
schools, and let home missions and tract so
cieties and the Bible translated in all tho lan
guages of these foreign people haro full swing.
Rejoice as Christian patriots that instead of
being an element of weakness tbe foreign
people thoroughly evangelized will be onr
mightiest defense against all the world. The
Congress of the United States Tecently ordered
built new forts all up and down our American
coasts, and a new navy is about to be projected.
But let me say that S300.000,ttH) expended in
coast defense will not be so mighty as a vast
foreign population living in America. With
hundreds of thonsands of Germans in New
York, Germany would as soon think of bomb
shelling Berlin as attacking us. With hun
dreas of thousands of Frenchmen in New
York, Franco wonld as soon think of firing on
Paris. With hundreds of thousands of En
glishmen in New York, England would as soon
think of destroying London. Tho mightiest
defense against European nations is a wall of
Europeans reaching all up and do wn the Amer
ican continent, a wall of heads and hearts con
secrated to free government. A bulwark of
foreign humanity heaved up all along our
shores, re-enforced by tbe Atlantic ocean,
armed as it is with tempests and Caribbean
whirlwinds and giant billows ready to fling
mountains from their catapult, we need as a
nation fear no one in the universe but God,
and if found in his service wo need not fear
As six hundred million people will yet sit
down at our national table, let God preside.
To Him be dedicated tbe metal of our mines,
the sheaves of our harvest fields, the fruits of
our orchards, the fabrics of our manufactories,
tbe telescopes of our observatories, the volumes
of our libraries, the songs of our cbnrches, the
affections of our heart, and all our lakes be-,
come baptismal fonts, and all our mountains'
altars of praise, and all our valleys amphithea
ters of worship, and onr country, having be
come 50 nations consolidated in one, may its
every ibearttbrob be a pnlsation of gratitude to
Him who made "of one blood all nations," and
ransomed that blood by the payment of the last
drop of his own.
