At tbe Ninth street Methodist Protestant
church, the pastor, Iter. Dr. Drlakhouse,
fireacbed to a good congregation la the morn
at, taking as his subjecti "Precious Blood"
1 Peier, LlQ.
Any one who will attentively observe the
operation of hit own mlod and the words he
employ! la the expression of his thoughts,
cannot fall to notice an aptitude for certain
term which he uses more f recently than
othert. Iniptratlon does not change the
racoul pecnllarltlea of the Individual, and
hence we find tbli habit of the Intellect ex
hibiting tuelf among the anthora of the
acred Scriptures. John hat bit favorite ex
pressions, Paul hat Ma, ami Peter alio
" Trecloai blood' la associated la the aame
epistles with "precious faith" and "pre
cious promises," and "precious corner
stone." la One, to be "precious" la the
mind of the Apostle Peter Is the superlative
of good, and means tho highest estimation
he could embody In words.
"Precious blood" Is prolific of thought
enough for oar purpose. It Is a golden
wedge held within these lines of troth i "For
as much na ye know that ye were not re
deemed with corruptible things, such aa Hi
rer and gold," Ac , wc propose to elaborate
the broken sentence to analiio this golden
wcago -precious oiooa."
That the atonement or blood made by our
Lord JciuiJChrlit.Mie great anil type for slo,
was not an arbitrary election of God the
Father, we may assume. It would be highly
Inconsistent with all our notions of his In
finite wisdom to conclude that the form glren
to the principle of substitution was not
special and selected. hy It was given that
the shedding of blood should be Inseparably
connected with all substitutes for sin, we no
more fullj understand than the mystery of
our redemption In general. H 1th the angels
we may desire- to look Into these things, nor
are we prohibited the search. c know
that with the entrance of sin Into oar world
came the gracious prorlslon of salratlon.
We know that the penalty of sla la death, .
which Is a negative for the forfeit of life.
We know that so far as we bare any concep
tion or equity that lire for 11 To or death for
death alone measures up to what we require
as a satisfaction In the administration of law
as between our fellows, and we may sofelv
assume that what would violate oar natural
sense of rectitude would vlolata the same
principle as it exists la the divlno adminis
tration, Inasmuch as truth an 1 right aro un
changeably the same. Tt U ia- f.ir
therefore, to understand bow the death of
too sinner sausnes tho penalty or his sin;
but the wisdom and goodness of God are
magnified In devising a plan whereby the
sinner could be spared the penalty, and yet
the eternal Principle of rectitude, which
must preside mall governments over moral
creatures, be honored and preserved.
Adam was a federal bead and represented
our race, so that his sin became the sin of
the world, not In its guilt, but In Us moral
consequences. How to atone for such a sin
and yet spare the sinner was the problem of
redemption. It has beea solved by the Infi
nite love on the principle of substitution.
And It enters Into the whole economy of sac
rifices and Is tho meaning of "precious
blood." as It stands couocctcd with the
death of Christ. How substitution satisfies
the whole purpose of revelation to explilu i
aided by the great system or types and offer
ings and ceremonial observances of the Mo
sale dispensation. So far, then, as possible,
let us try to understand, by the aids just re
ferred to, Aoi tHbttUution tatitjtitfor tin.
We have said that tbe atonement or blood
made by Christ was notanurbltrarvrioptiAn.
And we have said that our natural tense of
equity aemanns lire ror lire. And In this we
have tbe reason of an atonement by blood.
And tbe first glimpse we have of tbe Idea di
vinely enforced nnd opproprhted Is In that
early declaration "Hut tbe flesh, with the
life thereof, which Is the bloo I thereof, shall
ye not eat." And when the sacrificial sys
tem afterwards took form wu have the Idea
extended, ana it was made toco?er the prln
clple of substitution and app.Itd as an atone- fore the sermon. At the offertory an organ ' Interesting. After the ceremony, the sacra
meat. , voluntary was flnelv Dlaved bv Dr. Thomas , ment or the Lord's Banner was admlnlatererl.
The catlmr of b'ood at the first waa nn or
bitrary prohibition, so far as we know from
Revelation, but when the ceremonial Hw
came to be established, then the rear on for
the prohibition was given In these words, ,
"For theliro of the flesh is tuthoblooli
nnd I have glrcn It to you upon the altir to
make an atonement for your soalj fork Is
the blood that maketh no atonement for the
soul " Tho gist of it Is In this "the blood
Is the life." Wo see then, In part, why It
was given that the shedding of blood should
oc inseparably connected with all substltu
tlon for sin. Tbe blood It the life, and the

natural tense of equity And all mercy pat
aside from our thoughts and denied appeal
to our sensibilities it Is that which we de-
roand or one another blood for blood and
life for life. And when wu carry the prlncl-
pie to the divine administration, we are not
confused la the application, if we are slow
In making It, that If tbe penalty of sin be
death then tbe sinner must die. The law Is
plain. e understand It. Vnd tho blooi is
sacred because It represents tho life. It Is a
part of our exposition, and suggests why tbe I
apostle I etcr, when he thought of tho sacrl-
flea of Christ, and attempted to express his
superlative estimation of the deed of love,
said, "precious blood."
The speaker then dwelt upon atonement
by substitution In contra-dlstlnctlon from
atonement by rcnal(y, and how It was

The experience of years had been blessed
to Paul In his labors. The man who labors
most Is most blessed. If yon want to be
blessed, von will be so If yon will toil and
labor. We grow In grace and knowledge as
we work for Christ. If we do not work,
alast ws sleep. Sentiment alone, though
pure and refined, la of no Talue. We must
labor. To do as Christ did la of Immense
value, and If we attain to what Taut attained
we are richer than we can be with all else In
this world. Work for and with Christ. Peo
ple sometimes pray, Increase our faith. In
constant labor we have faith. The more we
know Christ the more we shall know and
love another) our faith will become more
elevated, and we can say with Paul, "I know
whom I have believed."

In the afternoon the Rev. Mr. Freuch
preached from Galatlans, 6th chapter and 2d

so fulfill the law of Christ."
In the evening the usual monthly concert

with the truth that the people through tbe

Ubssquixs ot Mr. D. D. T Lixca. The
funeral service of D. D. T Leech, esq , took
place at j90 o'clock yesterday afternoon In
the presence of a crowded congregation.
Tbe deceased was widely known throughoat
the city as an earnest Christian laborer lo
prisons, barracks and hospitals. For many
years he waa a prominent offlclat member of
the Foundry church, and was beloved by tho
entire congregation. For thirty years he
was a clerk In tbo Post Office and Treasury
Departments) was the author of numerous
essays on tbe organisation of the Govern
mental Departments, lie was a fine scholar,
and waa considered one of the best linguists
in the country.
The funeral exercises were conducted by
tbe Rev. B, Peyton Brown, who read appro
priate passages from tbe scriptures, and by
tbe Rev. A. E. Gibson, tbe pastor, who gave
a brief history of the life and teal of the de
ceased In tbe cause of Christianity and the
Church, saying that he bad been an ex
emplary member of Foundry church for
more than thirteen years, attending Its
services morning, noon and nlgbt. As a
private citizen or member of tbe church his
life was without blemish, and for 33 years
be might be regarded as one of God's chosen
servants. Though tbe deceased was not a
minister of Christ tn the ordinary accepta
tion of the term, he was truly one Indeed,
and bis Christian labors were well known
throoghont the entire country, as during the
late war his ministrations and relief to the
hospitals of the defenders of tbo Union were
or the most acceptable nature, and appre
ciated by the Government and those of the
noble sufferers who were tbe recipients of bis
care and kindness.
The affecting services brought tears of
sympathy to every eye.
After the services were concluded a large
number of tbe persona present passed before
tbe coffin to take a last glimpse of the welt
known features. Tbo remains were Incased
In a handsome walnut coffin, covered with
black cloth. On the Ud was a silver plate
bearing the Inscription, " D. D. T. Leech.
Born at Nassau, X. Y., April 10, 1310. Died
November 5, 1909."
The pall bearers were the Hon. Joseph
Henry, LL. D , Hon. Horatio King, Robert
RIcketts, James N. Davis, John C. Ilarkncss
and Edward Simpson
Tbe services over, tbe faneral cortege was
formed by Mr. L. Williams, undertaker, and
the mournful procession proceeded to Glen
wood cemetery, where the remains were In
terred. Ltcecjt Lbctibxs. L. F. Ward lectured
at Union League Hall yesterday morning,
on the " Signs of the Times," and took the
ground that we are at this time undergoing
a moral and Intellectual revolution) that the
Intelligent reader of history could discover
in the present state of society, the strongest
analogies to those great eras of progressive
activity tbat characterize the annals of tbe
human race ) and sees tbe same races at
work which marked the rise of Grecian phil
osophy and ushered In tho Christian era,
and discovered a striking parallelism be
tween the slumbering powers that lie beneath
the present social stratum and that wblcb,
kindled by John Guttenburg and Martin
Luther, burst upon the world In the revival
of letters and the reformation.
Tbo recent war and the abolition or slavery
had given an Impetus to thought In this
country, and opened tho eyes or tho people
to new Ideas and a course of thinking
hitherto unknown, and showed that there
still remained something to do for the human
race. It has taught the people to respect
the agitators of hitherto unpopular questions,
and made them realize tbat wbllo everything
seems to be running smoothly, there may be
hidden agencies at work nt the roots of so
ciety, powerful enough to overthrow It.
These and other Indications tell us plainly
of a coming revolution by which the minds
of tbe people shall be emancipated from all
kinds of tyranny
Tbe gist of the lecturer's Ideas may be
round when be says: Geology Is upsetting
tbe prevailing notions or man's antiquity as
well as tbat or our globe. W ben Sir Charles
Lyell declares that Indisputable evidences
have been found that man has occupied the
continent of Europe 30,000 years, and Louis
Agasslz asserts (and supports tbe state mint
by proof) tbat he has Inhabited America for
10,000 years, It Is Idle for theologians to
strive much longer to perpctuato tbe error
that be has existed but 0,000 years. A few
more years of progress and the believers In
tbe Mosaic account of creation will bo as rare
as those to-day who believe that the "sun
stood still on Glbeouj" and It will not bo
very long before the questionable theory of
man's descent from a single pair will also
have to be abandoned so Irresistible Is tbe
logic of nature as revealed In the greit book
of rocks and fossil remains which the geolo
gist reads as he reads a printed page.

niBBi BxtMsomi'i Lectubb trrOK Hbbrok
and tbb Cati ot MicarKLAB. This learned
and distinguished representative of tbe Israel
ltlsh faith, who baa come to thla coon try to
call the attention of the American people to
the mournful and destitute condition of Pal
estine and tbe holy cities, and wbo some
months ago made a profound Impression In
this city by his discourse upon Jerusalem,
gave a-very Interesting lecture upon Hebron
and the Care of Machpelah last evening In
the Hebrew synagogue, on Ninth street, to
a large and attentive audience, and we should
say, from oar acquaintance with the people,
that half of those present were of the Gen
tile faith. Tbe genuine orthodox Israelite
always sits In the synagogue wllh his head
covered, and. J ndglng from this fact, It woutd
seem tbat the Reformed Jews lo this city
were Tery decidedly In tbe majority, as the
number of hats worn dnrlog the discourse
were Tery few Indeed, though tbe number of
Jews present were certainly vsiy large.
There Is, as a matter of fact, on this point a
very decided division In this synagogue be
tween tbe orthodox party and tbat of the re
formers, in which the latter party is alto
gether In the majority. This synagogue
numbers among Its members a very large
number of our most enterprising and valua
ble citizens In all branches of business life,
and much wealth Is represented by them.
The eminent oriental expounder of the
Talmud was Introduced to the audience by

King, which was the learned Rabbi's home.
Tbe discourse of tbe Rabbi occupied, per
haps, an hour, and presented a comprehen

oldest of existing cities, having been founded
by Arbafa, tbe father of Anak and the Anak
rlons, the favorite abode of the patriarch
Abraham, and the residence of King David
dnrlog tbe early part of his reign. Tbe
Arable name signifies " The Fond "of God,
by which epithet the Arabs designate Abra
ham. The lecturer gave an account of the
sufferings of Its people In 1834, when, as a
consequence of the rebellion and defeat of Its
Inhabitants, It was stormed and plundered
by Ibrahim Pasha, and of Its plunder again

which was presented by the terrible condi

coursed. He also described the Cave of Machpelah,
which, according to the Mahommedans, Is
now covered by a mosque, formerly a Greek
