A Revolutionary Relic.
The following eloquent Revolutionary Ser
mon, preached on the 10th of September,
1777, on the ere of the battle of Brandywine,
by the Rev. Jacob Prout, to a large portion
of the American soldiers, in the presence of
General Washington, General Wayne. and
others of the Continental army, was recently
discovered among the old papers of Major
John Jacob Schcefinyer, an oleer of the
Revolution. It should be perused by every
lover of patriotism.
" They scho take the Swoord, eall perisk biy the
Soldier8 and' Felow-country:
We have met this evening, perhaps for the
last time. We have shared the toil of the
march, the dismay of the retreat-alike we
endprei .:old and hunger, the contumely of
the internal foe, and the outrage of the foreign
~oppresser. We have sat hight after night
eide the same camp-fire, shared the samne
ogh soldier's fare ; we have together heard
the roll of the reveille, which called us to duty,
or the idat oftthe tatoo, which gave the signal
for the h rdy sleep of the soldier, with the
earth for 'his bed, and the knapsack for his
And .now, soldiers and brethren, we have
met in the peaceful valley on the eve of bat
tle, while the sunlight is dying aw:ay beyond
yonder heighrts; the sunlight, that to-morrow
morn will glimmer ou scenes of blood. We
have met amid the whitening tents of'our en
ampment ; in times of terror and gloom have
we gathered together-God grant it may not
be for the last time.
It is a solemn moment. Brethren, does
not the solemn voice of nature seem to echo
the sympathies of the hour ? The flag of our
country droops heavily from yonder staff; the
breeze has died along the gre-en plain of
Chadds Ford-the plain that spreads before
us, glistening in sunlight ; the heights of the
lrrndywine arise gloiomy 'and grand beyond
de raters of yonder stream, aind all nture
holds a pause of solemu silence on thefeve of
the uproar of the bloodshed and strife of to.

Let the desolate plain-thle bloo~d-soddenedl
valley-the burned farmn house, blackening in
the sun-the sa1cked villaige, and ravaged
town, answer-let the whitening bones of the
buthered farmer, strewn along the fields of
his homestead, ain-wer-let the starving moth

brest, that can afford no nourishment, let
her answer, with the death-rattle mingling
with the mnumuring tonies, that miark the
last strug'gle for .life-let the dying mother
and her babe arnswer !
It was het a day psast and our land slept in
the light-of pence. W ar was not here-wrong
was not lhere. Fraud, and woe, and misery,
and want, dwelt not, among us. Fr,nm the
eternal solitude of the green woods, arose the
