Last Sunday, Mr. Beecher announced
to hil congregation that he would bo ab
sent two Kabbaths. He continued. It is
now tvolvo years since I have taken the
liberty ot leaving my own ctiurcii, but
havo generally made it a point uniformly
to be present and du my own preaching
both morning ana evening, exchanging
almost never, and then groaiimgly. Now,
then, it is nnlv fair that thu pu-.tor
iiibv tako a little liberty. You stay away
wnen you tiavo anuria lo, anu l ought in
have the liberty to do so occasionally. In
this instance tho absence Is more ttmn or
dinarily intcrcstiiii; to me. I go back to the
old fjtmillar places in wh It'll my own pub
lic life began. No ono can tell, no words
can express (here Ileccher paused, nltnost
nvercomu with emotion) lhe depth of tiU'ec-
tion I fcul for the West, nnd to this hour
fuej tho pain of lie separation from
there. I go back to placos now where
cities aro through which I have waded
kneo deep in mud. I go back to mako a
circuit of P,0U0 miles and deliver seven
teen addresses in only twico at much tlmo
a it tool; mo to go 800 miles when I
first lourneyed from Cincinnati. Twelve
years ago 1 mado substantially tho same
circuit. Then it begun on tho Monday
following tho bombardment of Fori
Sumter and this proclamation call

mudu my trip I ran along
the veruu of a lino of fire, and was gree
ted with tho roll of tho drum, tho trum
pot's sound, tho (lulling of Lnyonets,
tears and parting salutations at every sta
tion. I went into Cincinnati, nnd 'hat
'oodly p9op1o wero so alarmed lest Ken
tucky should como over and swal
low them up that thev would not let me
speak, and I hud to shako off tbo dust of
that city Irom my leet. 1 uaa lo go on

again under aspects a thousand times
more propitious, und with tho assurance
that I am a citizen of a country free in

without peril to life or limb. When last I
went West I kept tho line Mason and

that God made men free and tho devil

now there is no such danger, and thero it

I am proud now of my country ; I rejoice
