IR. J. I.. CARROLL'S AOOHKSS
The following is the address delivered
Rev. Dr. J. L. Carroll, of the French
liroad Baptist church, at the memorial
exercises held in this city on Dec. 1 1th:

keynote ot this s lenin memorial service

scaic; aim 111 lining up .lie ten minute
alotted me, I shall seek to make brief i
single point the life of Mr. Davis an il
lustration ol Cod's fulfilled promise 01
blessings upon one who loves Him. I

of the 91st l'salm; "Because he hath set
his love upon ire, therefore will I deliver
him ; I will set him on high because he
natn Known mv name. He shall call ui-
on me and I will answer him; 1 will Ik-
with him in trouble; I will deliver him
and honor him. With long lite will I
satisfy him, and show him mi salvation
I am glad to know that Mr. Davis was
a Christian, that he had "set his love'
on God. He was a memlier of the I'rot
estant Episcopal church. Durtng the
war, while in Richmond, he was a de
vout worshipper nnd communicant at
M. Paul s church, then in charge of the
venerable Dr. Charles Menniiigerode, w ho
lo-oay leaves nis retirement at the an
cient city of Alexandria and comes down
to his old church to conduct a memoria
service in honor of his illustrious and be
loved parishioner in the dark days ol
war. But I have heard the question ask
ed in the last lew days, was there anv
thing positive and pronounced in thechar
acter and lite of Mr. Davis? I am glad
to lie able to give an affirmative answer.
In proof of this I adduce a single inci
dent and the testimony ol two witnesses.
The incident occurred on the last day of
his service in the I'niled States Seriate.
In the conclusion ol hissolemnand touch
ing valedictory address, he magnani
mously confessed to his fellow senators
the infirmities of human nature in his
own character and life, and humbly
begged pardon of every one of them
whom he had ever offended. Could any
thing have been more beautiful, and
graceful and Christian-like? Could any
thing but strong religious principle have
prompted him to such a step at a time
when excitement ran high, when judg
ments were harsh, and words were bit.
ter? The firt of the witnesses whose
testimony I offer is Senator Reagan, of
Texas. Asa member of the Cabinet of
Mr. Davis his Postmaster General he
had abundant opportunities to observe
his inner character and life at a time
when his temper and spirit and patience
were most sorely tried. And yet in an
interview with a reporter since the death
of his Chief he volunteered the statement
that Mr. Davis was one of the most de
voted Christians he ever knew.
The other witness is Dr. J. William
Jones, who recently lectured here on the
Cbnstian lite and character of Stonewall
last Saturday he bears even more posi
tive and emphatic witness to Mr. Davis'
firm faith in evangelical religion, his er
sonal hope in Christ, and the contrilling
influence of his faith and hope upon his
character and conduct. Having settled
the proposition that there was some
thing positive and pronounced in the
Christian character and life of Mr. Davis,
let us now see how the sevenfold promise
ol the text was fulfilled in him. It says:
"Because he hath set his love upon me,
therefore will I deliver him." Look at
this promise in the light of the dangers
which threatened to cut off his eventful
life in the Mexican war, particularly at
the battle of Buena Vista, where he was
severely wounded, while, with conspicu
ous gallantry, he and his regiment of
brave Mississippiaus turned the fortunes
of the dav and wrested victory from the
jaws of defeat ; during the four years of
our fearful war, in which, as the presi
dent of the Confederacy, he had fear
within as well as without, remembering
that at one time he barely escaicd the
deadly bullet of the assassin while t illing
on horseback alone in an unfrequented
part of the city of Richmond, and par
ticularly during the two yearsof his cruel
imprisonment in Fortress Monroe, where
like a caged eagle his feeble physical
Irame threatened to wear itsell out as li
languished under the tortures of shame
and degradation and outrage. Vet from
til these dangers the Lord delivered him
and his life was spared. "I will set him
on high, because he hath known mv
name." The Lord gave him talent
which, in his providence, were develoiied
in beautiful harmony and rounded pn
portion. He achieved distinction as
soldier, as a statesman, as an orator, as
i riter, as an officer in the cabinet of
General Pierce, and as president of the
confederate Mates, hi these several
ivavs the Lord set him on high and made
hitn one of most conspicuous men of the
"He shall call upon me, and I w ill an
iwer him." The Lord took him into
.lose, intimate, telegraphic communica
tion with Himself. He was an unwaver
tig believer in the powerful efficacy of
praver, as witness Ins retieated and
solemn calls upon his jieople to thanks
giving, praver, lasting and humiliation
in the presence of the God of battles in
whose hands were the issues of the war
ind the destiny ol the country. And he
was a man ol praver himself, and his ex
imple stimulated thetailhand brightened
-he hopes of his people. And God nn-
swercd his calls upon hiinselt not in the
vav and at the time he preferred, it mav
ie, but in a better way and at a better
ime, even God's own way and time, to
,vhich the earnest worshipiier became re-
signed and submissive.
1 will lie with htm in trouble, savs
the promise. Our chieftain had troubles,
to which all men are born I, his full
share of them. Apart from otliersoiirees
hat might be mentioned, think what an
tbiindant harvest ol them was born ol
.he cares and responsibilities ol his posi
tion as the recognized head of the Con-
eucratc government, with all eves turned
;o liiin, and all cars waiting for him to
-iciik. Is tt not a wonder that he was
nit overwhelmed by these? And then
vhen deteal came, and he languished in
rons in Fortress Monroe, with little to
lo but to think ot the sufferings his eon
Itiered people were undergoing, is it not
i wonder it did not kill hi in outright ?
tes; ami this would have been most cer
ainly the result had not God kept his
promise to "be with him."
"1 will deliver him, and honor him,"
.'ontinues the promise. Yes, God deliv-
.rrd him Irom his troubles, and how
really in His providence He has hon
ired him, let the millions of hearts
-hat grieve to-day, the millions of heads
