INITIAL SERMON OF THE S Elf BI SH OP
OF SOUTH CAROLINA.
The Trae Character of Christian
Preaching-Th? Daly of Toleration
Enforced-Earn tat Words from the
Shepherd to hi* Flock.
f.The announcement of a discourse from the
Ight Rev. Bishop W. B. W. Howe, the suc?
cessor of the lamented Bishop Davis, as the
chief pastor of the Protestant Episcopal Dio?
cese of South Caroona, filled Sr. Philip's
Church last evening wkh an unusually large
congrega lon. While the body of the church,
Including a'sles, ga'lerles and doorways, was
crowded to its utmost capacity by the lally,
an imposing array" of the clergr, In their
priestly robes, occupied the chancel. The ser?
mon was one that w?l be full of interest-to
Episcopal readers especially-throughout the
State. The bishop said:
We preach n ,t ourselves, but Christ Jesus the 1
Lord, ano ourselves, your servants, fer Jesua'B |
sake.-// Corinthians^ 4YA, 6th.
In these nervous words, the great Apostle
te the Gentiles exhibits to the Corinthian
Church a characteristic leature ot the Chris?
tian ministry, When lt Is animated by the
Spirit ot Him who ordained it, and promised
to he with it nnto the end of the world.
And ibis characterisiic feature ls its self-re?
nouncement, wherein-men learn, ihtough the
Grace of God, to lose themselves in the per?
son and work of tt;e Re Jeemer. Does any be?
liever s <y, lor ins une , "I am of Paul, or 1 am
of Apollos ?" Immediate'? such a npitlt ls re
oukjjfl by the counter challenge, "Who, then,
is Paul, and who ls Apollos, but ministers by
whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to
ever v man ?" I have plumed. Ai ol os water?
ed, out God gave the increase. So, then,
neither is he that plantet), anything, nor he |

death, cu things present, or ihincs to come}

Let me, then, my brethren, on the present
occa=ion, invite you, asia most meet, to con-1
?? template my text nuder ihe aspect wi.icu haa.[
w been suggested?. '. and as. exemplified in
the person and experience of Tie Apos?
tle himself. I will " not dwell on the
occasion ol St Paul's writing this second let?
ter to the church ?lu Coi lath, rave merely to
remark, that sn influential minority In that
church still resisted the weight and authority
of the first epistle, and spoke contemptuously
ol its author and his preaching. Tain minor?
ity found a leader ls the person of ap sola* J
sary from Jems dem, and whom St. Pani terms
a "false apostle" ana a "minister o? Satan," j
and whose confident and arrogant bearing was
in striking contrast with ihe humility of the
apostle. This ia se apostle sought self In
popular applause, in preaching for gain, and
in seeking to secure, by most onworthy art*,
a large fol'owl?g; but t?e true aposile renounc?
ed all these thing*, and counted them AS che
very dust of the earth? if only he could win
Christ, and magnify Him in the eyes ot others.
With mus much premised, let us recur to my
text. "We preach not ourselves, but Christ
Jesus the Lord, and ourselve*, sour servants,
for Jesus's sake." Lett's first look and see
how these words were fulfilled In St. Paul
Two great classes of men made up the
ancient Christian church-the Jews and the
Gentries-and io have adjusted the Gospel
so as to make it subservient to the . radii lons
of either ot these greet sections, would Lave
been not to preach Jesus, the Lord, bot him?
self. What did the apostle do ? Look and see.
The Jew said,' "Except ye be circumcised, ye
cannot be saved." Bul such a canon as this
plainly ot soured the cro?s, and the Infinite |
sacrifice which had been offered thereon. In
such a dilemma, the apostle never hesi?
tated to bring down .on himself the
ire*-of H?iscc?llTjneW ip* ?ne distinct
announcement, that only In the blood and
righteousness et Christ, and not by works nf I
the law, could men, both Jew snor-Gentile, be-|
justified and sanctified, and at last glorified.
"Standfast," he writes to the Galatians "in
the liberty wherewith Chi 1st has made us
free, and be cot entangled again with the ,
Xgke of bondage. Behold I. Paul, say unto
you, that If ye be circumcised, Christ shall
profit you nothing. For In Jesus Christ
neither circumcision avalleth anything, nor
uncircumclBloo, but faith, which workeih by
love." And to the same effect he writes to
the Corinthians: "CircumcMoa is not bing,and
uoclrcumcMon is nothing." And Juatas he ,
never failed to cross and denounce the no-1
lions and traditions of his countrymen, when.
those traditions contradicted the truth of the
Gospel, so in like manner he never hesitated
to shock the vainglory of the philosophic
Greek, by insisting upon the facts ot dur
In au the.simplicity of a child-like faith. In
recommending the Gospel to mena' accept?
ance, the apostle renounced all that pompous
rhetoric wherewith very'many of the teachers
ot that age were wont to catch the ear and
fasten the attention of multitudes, who went I
roving from school to school, and from creed
to creed. I do not mean j hat ino apostle de?
spised a true philosophy, or that ne noder
rateAthe graces ot a noble literature, or that
he was unwilling to make them pay tribute
to the advancement and spread of the Go.-pel;
his epistles, and the references in
them to Greek thought and culture,
snow that he did not under-value them
In their proper place-he would oaly
not have them overshadow, but simply illus-,
irate the .truihs which he advocated, lest
otherwise the "cross of Christ should be made
of none effect." Not for wonda would be draw j
away the thoughts of his hearers from the
message itself to the manner in which it wa :
d' livered, or to the skill of the messenger
He was ever ready to abase self, in order .oat
the Master might stand oat all the more clearly
apon the canvas. "And I, brethren," he
writes In this same ep'Bile, "when I came to I
you. came not with excellency of soeech, or of
wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of
God; for I determined not to know anything [
among you, save J*sus Ch ri st and Him cruci?
fied. And I was with you in weakness, ana ia
fear, and in much trembling. And my speech
and my preaching were not with enticing
words of man's wisdom, but In demonstration
of the Spirit and of: power, that the faith
should not stand In the wisdom of men but in
the power of God." And in another place he
says: "The Jews require a sign, and the
Greeks seek after wifdom, but we preach
Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling
block and unto the Greeks foolishness." How,
toa. did our apostle abhor the sectarian spirit
of 9s day which exalted any name, even his
own, into und fe prominence, aa Jealous was
he of the honor dna unto his Master. "Now
this I say, that every one of you saith I am*of |
Paul, and I of Apolles, and I of Cephas, and I
of Christ Is Christ divided* Was Paul cru?
cified for yon? Or were ye baptized lr me
name of Paul' I thank God I baptized oort
of yon. but Crlspus and Gains, lest aova . ott:
say I baptized in my own name." Itu.
everyway, he took heed unto himself ?md was
alwax* on his guard not to preach himself,
bat .?Christ Jesus the Lord."
Observe next the other characteristic feat?
ure in St Paul's self-renouncing ministry, and
which is expressed Io the latter part of the
text "Ourselves, you.- servants, or bound
slaves, for Jesus's sake." We have a most
affecting reference to bis well-known devotion
to others In the 20th sf Acts, when, having
called together the elders of Ephesus to bid
them farewell, he takes t hem to witness before
God concerning himself, In these touching
words: "I have coveted no man's silver, or j
gold, or apparel; yea, ye yourselves know that
these hands have ministered nnto my necessi
ty, and to them that were with me. I have |
showed yon all thing?, how that so laboring,
ye ought to support the weak, and to remem?
ber the words of the Lord Jesus, how He said.
'It ls more blessed to give than to receive.',(
And observe the motive which Impelled St
Paul to become the servant of ol herc-it was
all "for Jesus's sake " It was ont of devotion
to tbe Master that he abounded In Journeyings,
"in perils of water*, In perils of robbers, in
per s in the eily, in perilsln the wilderness, in
perils in the sea, In weariness and painfulness,
in watchings often, lu hunger and thirst, in
fastings often, in cold and nakedness " un?
doubtedly it ls a high reach to labor for man,and
from love to man, and to lose yourself in th?
wants and distresses ol your lellow-meo and
to lay down your Hie for them, if need be! and
all for their sakes; bat high and noble as all
this ls, lt ls not so high as to do it from rever
et.ee to oae "Who loved you, and gave Him?
self for you;" and "Who Is God over all, bless?
?e? forever more."
And as lt was with the Apostle in this re?
gard, so ought lt ever to be with all who are
called to preach the glad tidings of Salvation_
they, too, must do it, first and last, for "Jesus's
And, moreover, they must see to lt, as did
ihe Afpstle, that they "preach not them
selves, but Cnrlst Jesus the Lord." A
love their own souls, they most be <
I here. What ever else changes lu the h
time, there can be no change here. Am
is lt to preaca Christ* You may ]
learnedly and eloquently, but not nece
Him. You may preach sound doctrine
cannot be reproved, but what ls the soi
doctrine, if Christ be not in it ? 8ystv
theology, which have been wrouebtout
most careful and prof und reflection,
scriptural truth?, and which are entirely
', mat? in their r? suits, do not necessari.y i
I Christ to the hearer : for dogmatic, tea
I let it be remarked, is rather the hedgf
'sometimes a thorny one, io cu ard sad 1
the "faith once delivered to the saints,'
I the living truth Itself, which alone can m
! our souls unto eternal life. A preacher,
6tancr, may discourse upon the ca
doctrine ol justification by faith, au
do it in such a way as to leave i
out altogether, because he fasten?
thoughts upon a process-upon a sc
-rainer than . upon ihe pets m
work of our adorable Redeemer Hi
I say nothing against dogma, nor join:
hue aud cry which is raised against lt o
day?, but merely say, let it keep its own |
and not presume to stand in our Lord's i
or offer ii self to us. instead of
Dogma is essential to Christ lau truth, bei
lt grows otrt.pl the very, constitution i
human inielf?ct itself, which is necessl
to ruminate "upon and distinguish
one another, so as to harmonize them
various aspects of the truth, which have
pr? sentedlo it. But when, instead of b
the form into which truth is cast, or
verbal channel whereby it is transit
from one age to another, the dograatii
ment asserts for itself sn independent v
why then it becomes, as lt were, only "sc
lng brass and a tinkling cymbal." And
when tue preacher ls able to avo d this f
of delivering ihe results of the mere lo
faculty instead cf "Christ Jesus the L<
and makes it his special effort to procla
personal Suviour, and one who ls alive for?
more, even in such an efforr, and how
honc-tiy made, there wdl be more or le
a liability to .proclaim a partial Cb
and a partial salvation, and not a w
Christ and a whole salvation.
Now in this connection, look at my 1

You cometln.es hear men spoken of as fi
fal preachers of Christ, and termed such
exoeQence, because they dwell almost'-ex
S'vely upon "Christ crucified.'' But su:
Christ was not only crucified, but He was i
incarnai e, and obedient to the Law for n
and resurgent and ascendant as well as ?
clfled; and these acts ol His were as m
paris of His redeeming work as were
crucifixion aud death; and, however fervei
we may press Gethsemane and the oross uj
the needs and consciences of sinners, we rt
not do lt to the exclusion o other works;
if we do, just here our preaching ol Christ \
be narrow and defective.
The cross and ihe precious sacrifice then
will Undoubtedly be most attractive
the eyes of a perishing world. Indeed, Je
has predicted this In the words, "And I,
be lined up. will draw all men unto Me." I
when men are b^wed down under a sjns<
sin, and wheo they ask themselves, "Whc
with shall I come before the Lord, and b
myself before the high God," what less co
you expect thin to tee them fasten th
eyes with the ioten-est gaze upon the "La
of God, slain lo take away the Bins of I

tms feel the batden of sin, nor the greit lc

such a case, is more calculated to move a

we mu.- li preach over and over again ot h
man sin and ils atonement, only taking ca

Yon will mark the apostle's expression, II
brethren, cot Jesus Christ crucified, b
"Jesus Christ and Him crucified." Indeed
partial preaching of Christ, even though
dwells upon the cross, cannot but reBult
partial end^defecrlve views of the "great BI
vallon." Slight, for example, the lncarnatit
as being the union ul the divine ai
haman, and how apt ls the eat!

our thoughts of haman immortality becom

we forget that Christ ls risen and alive To

of our own immortality as bodiless, and t
think thus, sot only without dismay, but eve
with satisfaction; and such surely have nee
that a risen as well as a crucified Chrl;

preach "Cnrlst Jesus the Lord" when w
preach any one, or all of those instrumental
ties which He has appointed for the adminli
trallon of His redemption. We preach Hil
when we preach o? the Holy Ghost who take
of Him and shows Him unto us, and withot:
whose Indwelling we are none of His. W
preach Christ when we preach of His Gourd

we preach the ooe bapt ism for the remlssto

and 60 drawing down His lile into u?, is not ol
God but ot the world. Yea, here, as every?
where el*e, Christ must be "all In all," foi
without Him we eau do nothing.
But it the wa]s of preaching Christ are so
multiform, ls lt not plain that no one man can
preach Him fully ? So long as men's spiritual
perceptions differ, there must be expected a di?
versity In some respects; and all that can be re
Stired ls that each one, in reflecting the light,
ould reflect not himself, but only the
central figure, which 1B Christ. Just as in
a landscape, one ls attracted to the moun?
tain, another to the sunset, and an?
other to the quiet harvest field, so in the
infinite relations ot our Lord to the human
soul one ls mostly drawn here, and another
there. And this f ?ct, my brethren, oui;ht
surely to teach us chanty and toleration, one
towards another. There are, of course, limits
within which, as orthodox Christians, we must
all of us be content to walk. We may act step
aside, for instance, from the two great creeds
of universal Christendom, but within these
we ma; walk ia love one towards another, and
help one another to bear each his burden.
Ana, surely, it ls one great blessing of our
branch of the church that she distinctly recog?
nizes this broad catholicity, bounded only by
the Apostles' and Nicene creeds. So long as a
man will use her formularies she asks not to
know what he holds outside of them. She
will not proscribe him because be ls a Calvin?
ist, or because be hs an Arminius, or because
he has high views of the sacraments. Within
her wide borders men dwell W20 never can be
brought to think alike in all points, or to see
the troth ia all its relations in precisely the
same way. I know it is sometimes urged that
we are wide, tilt we are weak; bat who of us
wooM sacrifice our comprehensiveness for the
sake'ol having more sharply cut articles ol
faith rwLoof us would. If he could',''eliminate
the moderate Calvinism ot the seventeenth ar?
ticle from the Prayer Book and thereby lose oar
Ushers and Lelirh't o ns ? Or. put ander the baa
high sacramental views, aud thereby lose
Hooker and Ken and Wilson and Keble ? Nay.
in a'l these differences, we will learn to say i
with the Apostle, "NTotwlthstaod'ng
way, emin is preached, and therein fr?
yea, and will rejoice." Looking al the Pi
Book thus with large eyes, lt would seem
the result oiHhe entire Christian past

our taklng*oroad views, and generously
cheerfully recognizing the fact that God w

dwelt upon what I conceive to be a most
portant topic, because without such
catholic views lhere can be no well grout
charity among us. My brethren, we 1
learn to lift ourselves above ourselves,
even above our mon earnest convict:
if we would live in peace, and e
a progress which ls free from
anxiety of suspicion. Rely upon lt, not e1

Eo, surely we ought to walk in love and

of the apostle: "Who art thou that Judg

Entirely in tula spirit, if I kno.W myself, d
brethren, and feeling my weakness more tt

My record ia not unknown to you, am
: merely cay, at this time, that my views

the pasr. and I bold them with fervor. B
while this is so, yet may God ever forbid il
my affections and sympathies and love shot
either be prescribed by them, or limited
them. God forbid that I should need, at tl
late day, to learn for the first time the lease
that othei b may see the blessed (ruth, as it

1 brief months, and now I si and alone, and "?o

(?race to will and grace t J do, and that none ut
the girts of grace may be in vain."
Receive me then, my dear breihrenof the

brighter days ia store for us, but at ibe eame

exodus of the clergy which has gone on in the
last six years, our once vigorous diocese will,
soon or late, become like those worn-out
fields we all know so well, which have uo
husbandmen to plough them, or BOW seed
upon their soil, but are given over to briers
and thorns and fires.
A word more, and I will no longer detain
you. It lt be our bounden duty, the duty of
the clergy, to preach Christ Jesus, the Lord,
and ourselves, your servants, for Jesus's sake,
then lt ls no leas yours, my brethren ot the lally,
as you value your souls, to give heed to the
word spoken, and to enthrone in your hearts,
above father or mother, or wife, or children,
or estate, Him whom weare commissioned to
proclaim as Lord to the glory of God the Fa
ther. The time and the circumstances which
environ na are all calculated to put to a severe
test our faith In that Gospel wherein we have
been t aught, and our love for Him who died
for us. duce, when all things moved on qui?
etly about us, and we had abundance, it was
not so; but new. 1? Christ be "really enthroned
i in our hearts, the crown which we offer Him
will cost ns som et hi Dp. Beware, brethren,
how you subord?nale Him to temporal Inter?
est?. Take heed how you learn to endure
easily, and wlih Indifference, the closed and
dilapidated church. Fall not Into the snare of
putting even, thing else In order, ere you ren?
der to Him bis due, but "seek ye first the
kingdom of God and His righteousness, and
all these things shall be added unto you."
Pray often and earnestly that the Lord of the
harvest would send forth laborers into His
harvest. For, believe me, my brethren, we
can do without many things that seem all im?
portant-we can do without large estates, .and
rich food and sumptuous apparel; but we can?
not do without Jesus Christ. All that now
meets the eye and screens the eternal from ns -
will soon lift Itself, and reveal that which
passeth not away, even the dominion, and the
power, and the glory of the Son of God-the
same yesterday, to-day and lorever. 0 how
will you then appear, il in that day of R?v?la?
tions you shall be found to have built your
house upon the .shifting sands, and to have
committed all your hopes, and cares, and
thoughts to that world whose fashion passeth
In that day. when we shall see the King in
His g-ory, and behold thousands and thous?
ands ministering to Him, and ten thousand
times t-n thousand standing before Him; in
that day when the books shall be opened and
the dead, both small and /rea*, shall be judged
.out ot the books? and for tie tblocs aone io
the body, aud fur the things not done but
which ought to have been dune-in that day
may we, who are appointed to watch for your
souls, u they that must g ve an account, pre?
sent you fan tl? ss before the Throne, because
washed in the blocd ot that immaculate Saint
that was s ain to take away the s'ns of the
world; and thus as we look up to Him who
Judget h righteous Judgment be able to say In
humble confidence, "Behold us Lord and the
children whom Thou hast given us." Amen.
PREPARATIONS FOB THE MASONIC]
The Masonic parade, On the occasion of lay?
ing the corner-stone of the new temple, pro?
mises to be one of the events of the season,
arri Charleston may look forward- to visits
from thousands of our friends from the cotin
try. The Master Masons wil be allowed to
pas? over the railroads and back for one fare
only; and besides the crowds this induce?
ment wi 1 gather, large numbers of repre?
sentatives from tbe adjoining Stiles will be
present to take part la the festivi?
ties of an order as universal as the
world itself. At a late mee tl o g of the
commit*ee on decorations some exquisite de?
signs were banded In by Mr. John H. Deve?
reux. At the crossing of King and Went?
worth streets, the sight of th" Tew temple,
a triumphal arch wH be erected, in imitation
of the "Arco di Constantino" In Borne, the
side arches covering the sidewalks, and the
main arjh crossiog at one spin the entire
street, and attaining at the apex of the arch
an elevation or some for,y feet. On the Side I
of the street will be a ba us trade, and Just above
it a large platform tor the band, the whole to
be surmounted by banners, flags, drapesy, Ac.
Upon the lidies will devolve the pleasing task
of preparing wreaths, garlands and flowers
for the decorations. A large and commodloss
platform will be erected In King street, oppo?
site Mr. Holmes's book store, with a rostrum
for the speakers, extending over and com?
manding a view of Wentworth street, east
and west. It Is ala') hoped that the owners of
the adjoining buildings will ornament their
fronts, and thus contribute to the general
effect. Charleston bas not hal a gala day lor
a long time, but this ls likely to be an occa?
sion to be remembered.
THE NEW COTTON PRESS.
A Sacco*fal Trial -Carlo.Ititi Of St I
Charleston Machi ne Shop.
The flo al trial of the new cotton press, de-1
slgued and built by Mr. John F. Taylor, oft
the firm of John F. Taylor & Co., at their ex-1
tensive workshops* a fuli description of which
appeared in TH? NEWS of Saturday, took
place on Saturday morning, In the presaoce of I
a number of the business and "cotton" men of
the ciiy. The press was srt in motlon,and turned
out ona hun ired and three bales, ready for I
shlpp'ng, In about eighty minutes. Many ot I
these bales, owing to the bursting o? the tie?,
had to be put on the press twice, and the
average work performed was seventy-five
bales in the hour in first-rate shipping- order.
The builder s claim that the work done by the j
new machine is far superior to that ot the I
old presses, and that the difference is already
known to shipper?. The performance of the
press was entirely satisfactory, and lt was at
once received by Mr. John Hanckel, fur whom
lt was mad". Accepting the invitation
ot the proprietors, tbe company assembled ai
ter wards entered the machine shops of Me? sr?. I
Taylor AC)., and there inspected a colo,-sal
hammer. A large mass of Iron had been heat
ed for the purpose, and having been p aced*
upon the anvil, was wielded and beaten into
various shape*, showing the admirable work- j
log of the heavy machine. The hammer
strikes a dead blow of live thousand pounds,
and the valve arrangements are so perfectly I
adjusted that the weighty instrument can be
used for cracking hickory nuts without inj ur- I
log the kernels. Tbe hammer ls a direct act
lng steam one. Among the noticeable woik
lately turned out at these shops, are the Iron
fronts tor the new Masonic temple, and an im' j
mouse boiler, made for the steam-tug "Chris
liana," of Savannah. It weighs sixteen tons.
It Is quite encouraging to see that Savannah
has steamers large enough to carry the boil?
ers we make in Charleston.
