ger of fo-mine our national character af
ter a wrtng ideal. In 1S61 this nation
was a yo ang giant. What was to be the
type of our civilizition? History furn
ished mny warnings, but no ideal.
Some nations, as ancient Egypt,
Assyria t td Rome have made war their
trade; vea, their pastime. Look
upon the drawings copied from the dis
entombed sculptures of Egypt and Assy
ria, and Rome followed the same eorv
path, till, with all her boasted grandeur"
shebecaaea nation of fiends drunk
with blood. Seme nations have been
plea8ure-lovinz, glory-seeking lovers of
pageants and pompous display. Some
times mingling wrh their love of vain
glory, the cultivation of the beautiful in
ait and literature, but stilt were sensual
and eross. Such were the civilizations
of Niueveh and Greece, and in modern
times of France. National character
formed after such ideals could not endure.
There is littie danger to America from
such sources. Other nations have been
mammon worshipers. As Tyre, in her
declining days, Rome in later times, and
later, Spain, And how these perished!
Think of our land as it was 30 years ago.
Suppose one half was to have remained
slave and Mammon our God, and all lofty
ideals lost. The war came. Its discus

liberty and the divine law. If taught us
tiat righteousness ezal'etb, bit sin is a
shame to any people and that the people
that will not inscribe upon their banners,
' Holiness to the Lord," are doomed.
The war gave to the world an exhibi
tion of the splendor of American man
hood. Before the war the impression
generally was that the Yankee was a tort
of clever engenious Jack of all trades.
Wben it closed the world was filled with
admiration for the sterling character of
our people. When the call was issued
for soldiers by President Lincoln, a
spectacle was presented such as had
never been witnessed before. Notwith
standing the difficulty which districts
sometimes experienced in filling their
quotas such armies were never before
raised from among an intelligent, peace-
loving, industrious people, so largely by
volunteering. If soae, for a time, hesi
tated, as the tide of war swelled, brave
men answered the call, shouting a they

We see the Loble character of the men

they were not soldiers by profession, but

what an era of progress has our counry
since experienced! How much of this
prosperity may we attribute to the char
acter of the men who came from the war?
The pastor drew the lessoos of the in
fluence of Divine Providence on the
struggle, and the men who guided the
destinies of the nation throughout this,
the most trying period ia its history, the
result demonstrating that justice is inex
orable. The disiou se also demon

and in conclusion Dr. Taylor said:
Shall thoe who never came back from
the wnr and those wbo in the years since
i;s ciose have laid down wearied and
worn in sleep till the la?t reveille sha.l
summon them to stacd h'ain among the
living, be forgotten? The martyrs of
Christianity gave their livts for their faith.
These died to perpetuite tie American
republic and to tessify thit a mm is a
man, to matter what the color of his
skin. They sacrificed themselves for the
principles symbolized by cur triple dyed
and star-spangled flig" which cf all
natiora! e-uiblems represents what is
most God-honoring and ennobling amon"
the governments cf earth. We ardently
hope that as new issues arise good men
in the north and good men in the south
will see eye to ejeT join hands and labor
together to promote the highest welfare
of a common country.
We do well to remember those who by
the sacrifice of their livea purchtsed for
America her high place. The land is
dotted with their graves.
