BROOKLYN, Sept. 7.-Dr. Talmage's
sermon for to-day is a glowing descrip
tion of the melodies of the Celestial land.
His text was Rev. v. 9: "And they sang
a new song." Following is the ser
Nearly all the cities of Europe and
America have conservatories of music,
and associations, whose object it is, by
voice and instrument, to advance the art
of sweet sounds. On Thursday nights,
Exeter hall, of London, used to resound
with the music of first-class performers,
who gave their services gratuitously to
the masses, who came in with free tick
ets and huzzaed at the entertainment.
At Berlin, at eleven o'clock daily, the
military band, with sixty or one hundred
instruments, discourses at the royal opera
house for the people. On Easter Sun
day, in Dresden, the boom of cannon
and the ring of bells, bring multitudes
to the churches to listen to the organ
peals, and the exciting sounds of trum
pet and drum. When the great fair-day
of Leipsic comes, the bands of music,
from far and near, gather in the street,
and bewilder the ear with incessant play
ing of the flute, and horn, violin and bas
soon. At Dusseldorf, once a year, the
lovers of music assemble, and for three
or four days wait upon the great singing
festivals, and shout at the close of the
chorouses, and greet the successful com
petitors as the prizes are distributed
cups and vases of silyer and gold. All
our Amercian cities at times resound
with orchestra and oratorio. Those
who can sing well or play skilfully upon
instruments are greeted with vocifera
tion, and garlanded. by excited ad
There are many whose most ecstatic
delight is to be found in melodies: and
all the splendor of celestialgates, and all
the lusciousness of twelve manner of
fruits, and all the rush of floods from
under the throne of God, would not
make a heaven for them if there were
no great and transporting harmonies.
Passing along our streets in the hour el
worship, you hear the sacred melody, al
though you do not enter the building.
And passing along the street of heaven
we hear, from the temple of God and
the Lamb, the breaking forth of magnifi
-cient jubilate. We may not yet enter
In among the favored throng, but God
will not deny us the pleasure of stand
ing awhile on the outside to hear. John
hstened to it a great while ago, and
"they sang a new song."
Let none aspire to that blessed place
who have no love for this exercise, for
although it is many ages since the
thrones were set, and the harps were
strung, there has been no cessation in
the song, excepting once for about thirty
minutes; and judging from the glorious
things now transpiring in God's world,
and the ever-accumulating triumphs of
the Messiah, that was the last half-hour
that heaven will ever be silent.
Mark the fact that this was a new
song. Sometimes I have in church been

which all our people seemed to mingle

Sthis, we are told, is a new song. Some
Sof oar greatest anthems and chorals
,.are compositions from other tunes-the
sweetest parts of them gathered up inte
the ,harmony; and I have sometimes
thought that this "new song" may be
cpartly made up of the sweet strains o1
Searthly music mingled in eternal choral.
But it will, after all, be a new song.
ThsIdo know, that ir,. sweetness and
power it will be something that eaz

All the love ofGod'sheart wifl ring from

This new song of heaven was not comn
posed because heaven had nothing else
to do, but Christ, in memory of cross
and crown, manger and throne, of earth
and heaven, and wrought upon by the
raptures of the great eternity, poured
this from His heart, made it for the
armies of heaven to shout in celebration
of viectory, for worshipers to chant in
their temple services, for the innumer
able home circles of heaven to sing in the
house of many mansions. If a new tune
be started in church, there is only here
and there a person can sing it. It is
some time before the congregation learn
a new tune. But not so with the new
song of heaven. The children who went
up to-day from the waters of the Ganges
are now singing it. That Christian man
oi- woman, who, a few minutes ago, de
parted from this very street, has joined
it. -All know it-those by the gates,
those on the river bank, those in the
temple. Not feeling their way through
it, or halting, or going back, as if they
never before had sung it, but with a full
ound voice they throw their soul into
this new song. If some Sabbath day a
few notes of that anthem should travel
down the air, we could not sing it. No
organ could roll its thunder. No harp
could catch its trill. No lip could an
nounce its sweetness. Transfixed, lost,
,enchanted, dumb, we could not hear
it-the faintest note o1 the new song.
Yet, while I speak, heaven's cathedral
ua!lkes under it, and seas of glory bear

sing it-"the new song."

yielded to Senator Hoar, who expressed
the hope that the conference on the bill
might modify the reciprocity feature 8s

congress, instead of the President.
Senator Hiscock then entered upon a

Senator Hiscock was followed by Sena

COLLUMBIA. S. C., Se-pt. 11.-Shortly
after four o'clock this morning a com
mittee of twelve entered tha hall, t-s
corting Capt. 1. R. Ti llman and the
other noimimers. Their entrance was
the signal for lod and long appl)Iause
from the Tillmanites all of whom rose
to their feet as the party passed up to
the Speaker's stand.
The remnant of the Straightout dele
gation remaining in the hall kept tneir
seats and looked and listened in silence,
both to the cheering and to the speaking
which immediately followed.
Dr. Pope introduced each one of the
nominees in turn to the convention.
Capt. Tillman, on being introduced,
spoke in substance as follows:
Mr. President and Gentlemen of the
Convention: After your ardous labors.
lasting thoughout a day and night, I
know that you are now worn out, I have
had some sleep, and out of considera
tion for you I shall be very brief, for
you have had enough of speaking al
Captain Tillman, continuing, said
that he would, therefore, only touch
upon a few points which he felt it
necessary now to mention. They had
just conferred upon him a romination
to the highest office within the gift of
the people. and it has been customary
for thosethus honored to speak of the
sense of gratitude which overwhelms
tjhem, but he must say that whilst he
was profoundly grateful to the people
whose representatives they were, yet
the feeling of gratitude was not so
much uppermost in his mind as was
the sense of responsibility. They had
not conferred upon him a boon but a
burden, and he felt it so, and he realized
now that no Governor from the colonial
period down to the present time had
ever been so much the subject of watch
ful criticism as he would be.
We have just passed through a most
remarkable campaign, an un paralleled
one. and it Is doubtful if such a state of
affairs has existed in any other State.
There must be a cause for this, and
there was a cause. It was the cause of
the people against ring rule and boss
ism, and he was but the engineer, the
masses were the engine. The issues of
the campaign had been already fully
discussed, and most of the member
had already heard him do so at some
point or other in the State. He would
only say now in regard to them tha
the verdict of the people had declared
him to be right. Much had been said
perhaps on both sides that might hav(
been better left unsaid, and much bit
terness of feeling had been engendered
and yet he would say now that the grea
victory for self-government, which hac
been achieved by him in behalf of thi
people, was well worth all of the hear
burnings of the campaign, We entere
this morning upon a new era in thi
history of the State, and he trusted tha
the new departure would be looke<
back upon in after times with feeling!
of deepest gratitude, for it was oni
which made the people, the rank an(
file of the Demoer:ey, the true and onli
masters of the State.

man; he had been charged sometime.
with even brutal bluntness, and as
consequence was to-day the worst hate(
man in the State of South Carolina; an<
yet after aU, the people had endorse(
him. Why ? Compared to his two dis
tinguished competitors, what was he
A mere nobody. What was the reasot
for it? It was not that the people wer<
for Tillman; It was that they were fo:

In accepting this nomination
he felt that his peaceful dlays were
gone and a heavy load of cari
placed upon his shoulders. Be that a:
it may, he would assume the office t<
discharge its duties without fear, favo:
Hie trusted, now that the campai
had closed,the days of vituperation an<
abuse had also closed. Ie had been re
presented through the medium of thi
press as a dangerous demagogue,
worse than -Red Republican-as oni
who had defamed his mother State
When had he ever accused the peopl'
of South Carolina of fraud or corrup
tion ? He had charged official mistake
and mismanagement, and had said tha
such things should be righted and mus
be righted. That was all there was i
that. The turn of the wheel somnetime
brought~ the scum to the surface, anm
there were those that held that sucl
was the case with the revolution whici
had thrown him on top. If it were sc
time would show.
As regarded the hisses of those wh<
opposed him, he could say now that hi
felt no animosity towards them, no:
did he entertain a single spark of re
sentment in his bosom against any mai
who h-ad not treated him with commoi
decency in the campaign. Some there
were who had not done so, and he coul<
not say that he felt friendly dispose<
toward them; but he would say that hi
had no one to reward, no one to punish
and would enter oflice with clean hands
unpledged to anything whatsoever
save to administer the laws faithfull)
Alluding once again to the bitternes:
existing against him in certain quar
ters, Captain Tillman asked the Con
vetntion to contrast his action in the~
past, when he had accepted defeat an<
concurred in unsatisfactory nomina
tions, to the action of the people o
Richland, who had instructed thel:
delegates to vote against making hi
nomniin ation unanimous. Richlan<

column, but like the absence of thi

All that was needed was common hon

ways paid his own debts, always pro
tected his own credit. Why then should
he do anything to impair the credit of
the State ? Ie bAieved that so far from
any injury resulti:ig in this direction,
the contrary world be the case, and
that he would go out of office with the
credit of the State standling highei
than ever. Captain Tillman closed his
speech, which was of much greater
length than his opening remarks seem
ed to promise. with an appeal for har
imony, and said in conclusion that if all
of the people of the State would but
hold up his hands, we would enter up
on an unprecedented career ot happi
ness and prosperity.
The speech was listened to by all in
