SlftntOeance of th? Word "Departure."
Brooklyn, Jane 19?Rev. Dr. Tal
mage Is now /on the Atlantic, having
sailed from N*r York on the 15th inst.
for LlverponAor a preaching tour In
ffi^anjjpgBotland. Ireland and Sweden.

go to UuBsla, there to witness the
reception and disposition of the cargo of
breadstuff* on board The Christian
Bearld relief steamship Leo, which sailed
last week for St. Petersburg. Previous
to his departure be dictated to hie
stenographer the following farewell ser
mon, to be read by the vast and widely
scattered audiences whom It is bis week*
1 y privilege to address through the mo
dium of the newspaper press. Ho took
his text Irom II Timothy iv, 0, "The
time of my depa ' >re is at band."
Doparture! J ~<*t is a ?vord used only
twice In all the Bible. But it is a word
often used in the courtroom, and means
the desertion of one course of pleading
for another. It is used in navigation
to describe the distance between two
meridians passing through the extremi
ties of a course. It is a word I have re
cently heard applied to my departure
from America to Europe lor a preaching
tour to last until September. In a
smaller and less significant sense than
that implied in the text, I can say.
''The time of my departure is at hand."
Through the printing press 1 address
._this geraaepr^e-my readers all the world
over, and when they read it I will be in
midocean, and unless something new
happens in my marine experiences I will
be in no condition to preach. But how
unimportant the word doparture when
applied to exchange of continents as
when applied to exchange of worlds as
when Paul wrote, "The time of my
departure Is at bund."
Now departure implies a starting
place and a place ot destination. When
Paul left this world, what wastho start
ing point? It was a scone of great I
physical distress. It was tiieTulllanum,
the lower dungeon of the Mamertiae
prison, Rome, Italy. The top dungeon
was bad enough, it having no means of I
ingress or egress, but through an open
lng In the top. Through that the pri-1
soner was lowered,- add through that
come all tho food 'and air and light re
w colved. It was a terriblo place, that ]
^ upper dungeon, bid- tho Tallinn um was
the lower dungeon, and that was still
more wretched, the only light and the
only air coming through tho roof, and
that roof the floor oi the upper dungeon.
That was Paul's last earthly residenco.
' I was in that lower dungoon in No-1
yeuiber, 1889. It Is tiado of volcanic
stone. I measured It, and from wall to
wall it was fifteen feet. The highest roof
was seven feet from the floor, and tho
lowest roof live feet seven inches. The
opening In the roof tlirough which Paul
was let down was three feet wide. Tho
dungeon has a scat of rock two and a
half feot high and a shelf of rock four
fect high. It was there that Paul spent
bis lost day on earth, and it is thore that
f I soe him now, in the foarful dungeon,
shivering, bluo with cold, watlng for
that old overcoat which he had sent for
un to Trom, and which the had not yot
^sentdown, notwithstanding he ,had writ
ten for it.

That dungeon were Paul is incarcerated,
we might find out what are the pros
nr.rds of .Jia^Ps lv,''/*^ throu.ah thorough,
imprisonment. In the, first place ho is
au old man, only two years short ot
scvonty. At that very time when ho
mostneeds 'ho warmth, and the sunlight,
ami the frofh air, ho is shut out from the
sun. What arc those scars on his
ankles? Why, thoso woro gotten when
ho was fast, his feet in tho Stocka.
Every time ho turned, the flesh on his
ankles started. What are those scars
on his back? Ycu know he was whip
ped five times, getting thirty-niao strokes
? one hundred and ninety-five bruises on
the back (count them) made by tho Jews j

There is a wanness' about Paul's
looks. What makes that? I think a part
of that came from tho tact than he was
for twenty four houis on a plank in the
Mediterranean sea, suflcring terribly,
before he was > cscucd, for he says posi
tively, "I was a night and a day in the
deep." Oh, worn out, emaciated old
man! surely you must be melancholy;
no constitution could endure this and be
ehe er Uil. But IjYiVcbs my way through
the prison until I come up close to where
he is, and by the faint light that streams
through the opening I see on his face a
supernatural joy, and I bow before him,
and I say, "Aged man, how can you
keep cheerful tr .id all this gloom?" His

Hark! What is that shuttling ot feet in
he upper dungeon? Why, Paul has on
tvltation to a banquet, and he is going
> dine today with the king. Those
luflling feet are tho feet of the execu
)uors. They come and they cry down
rough the hole of tho dungeon; "J fur
up, old mao. Como, now; get your
ready." Why, Paul was ready,
had nothing to pack up. He had no
fage* to take. Ho bad been ready a
! while. I see him rising up, and
ghtening out his stiffened limbs, and
tng back his white hair from his
ee.d forehead, and see him looking
rough the hole in the roof of the
?on into the faco of Iiis execution
nd hear him say, "I am now ready
0 no offered, and the time of my de
parture is at hand."
Then they hfthim out of the dungeon,
and they start with him to the place of |
execution; They say: "Hurry along,
old man, or you will feol tho weight of
our spear. Hurry aloDg." "How far
is it," says Paul, "we have to travel?"
"Three miles." Three miles is a good
way tor an old man to travel after ho
has been whipped and crippled with
maltreatmeut. But they soon get to
the place of execution?Acquro Salvla?
and he is fastened to the pillar ot mar
tyrdom. It does not take any strength
toj tie him fast. He makes no resist

life? You have a great many friends

launch the thunderbolt of the people
upon those infamous soldiers. No!
Paul was not going to interfere with his
own coronation. He was too glad to go.
1 tee him looking up In the face of his
executioner, and,as the grim official
draws the sword, Paul calmly says, "I
am, now ready to bo ofteredi and tho I
t ime of ray departure is at hand." But |
I put my hand over my eyes. I want
not to sco that last struggle. One
sharp, keen stroke, and Pan! does go to

What a transition It was! From the
malaria ot Homo to the finest climate in
all tbe universe?tbe zone of eternal
beauty and health. Iiis ashes were pet
iu Uie catacombs of Rome, but In one
moment tho air of heaven bathed from
hie soul tbe last ache. From shipwreck,
from dungeon, from the biting pain of
the elmwood rods, from the sharp sword
of the headsman, he goes Into the most
brilliant assemblage of heaven, a king
among kings, multitudes of the saint
hood rushing out and stretching forth
hands of welcome, lor I do really think
that as on ih right hand of' God is
(?briet, so on tue right hand of Christ
Is Paul, the second great in heaven.
lie changed kings likewise. Before
the hour of death, and up to the last
moment, be was under Nero, the thick

horrible possibilities of his nature ?
seated as he was amid pictured marbles
of Egypt, under a roof adorned with
mother-of-pearl, in a dining room which,
by machinery, was kept whirling day
and night with most bewitching niagnili
cence, bis horses standing iu stall?? of
solid gold, and the grounds around his
palace lighted at night by its victims,
who had been bedaubed with tar ana
pitch and then set on tire to illumine
That was Paul's kiug. But the next
moment.he goes into the realm of him
whose reign is love, and whose courts
are paved with love, and whose throne
is set on pillars or love, and whose
scepter is adorned with jewels of love,
and whoso palace is lighted with love,
and whose lifetime is an eternity of love.
When Paul was leaving so much on this
side the pillar of martyrdom to gain so
much on the other side, do you wonder
at the cheerful valedictory of the text,
"The time of my departure is at hand?"
Now, why cannot all the old peoplo
have the same holy glee as that aged
man had? Charles I, when he was
combing his bead, found a gray hair, and
he sent it to the queen as a great joke,
but old age is really no joke at all. For
the last forty years you have been dread
ing that which ought to have been an
exhilaration. You say you most fear
the struggle at the moment the soul and
body part. But millions have endured
that moment, and may not we as well?
They got through with it and so can wo.
Besides this, all medical men agiee in
saying that there is probably no strug
gle at the last moment?not so mnch
pain as the prick of a pin, the seeming
signs of distress being altogether invol
untary. But vou say, "it is the uncer
tainty of the future." Now, child of
God, do not play the InQdol. After
God has filled the Bible till it can hold

about them, and you do not want their
society? Oh, no. There have been
days when you have felt that you could

crying to the departed: 4 "Come back to

Come back to the table where you used

burglary in heaven. No, ao. God will
not trust you with resurrection power,
but bo compromises tho matter and
says, "You caunot bring them where
y?-u are, but you can go where tuey arc."
Thoy are more lovely now than ever.

Besides that, it is moro healthy there
for you than here, aged man; better cli
mate here than these hot summers and
cold winters and late springs; better
hcnrins; better eyesight; more tonic in
the air; more perfume in the bloom;
moro sweetness in the toug. Do you
not feel, aged man, sometimes as though
you would like to got your arm and foot
free? Do you not feel as though you
would like to throw away spectacles
and canes and crutches? Would you uot
liko to feel the spring and elasticity and
mirth of an eternal boyhood? When the
point at which you start from this world
is old age. aud the point to which you
go is eternal juvenescence, aged man,
clap your bands at the anticipation, and
say, in perfect rapture of soul, "The
time of my departure is at hand."
I remark again, all those ought to
feel this joy of the text who have a holy
curiosity to know what is beyond this
earthly terminus. And who has not
any curiosity about it? Paul, I suppose,
ha l the most satisfactory view of heav
en, and he says, "It doth not yet appear
what wo shall be."
It is like looking through a broken
telescope. "Now we see through a
glass darkly." Can you tell me any
thing about that heavenly place? You
ask me a thousand questions about it
that I cannot answer. I ask you a
thousand questions about It that you
cannot answer. And do you wonder
that Paul wassoglad when martyrdom
Save him a chance to go over and make
Iscoveries in that blessed country ?
I hope some day, by tbe grace of God,
to go ever and see for myself; but not
now. No well man, no prospered man,
I think, wants to go now. But the
time will come, I think, when I shall
go over. I want to see what they do
there, and I want to see how they do it.
I do not want to be looking through
the gates ajar forever. I want them to
swing wide open. There are ten thous
and things i want explained?about
you, about myself, about the govern
ment of this world, about God, about
We start in a plain path of what we
know, and in a minute come up against
a high wall of what we do not know.
I wonder how It looks over there.
Somebody tells me It Is like a paved
city -paved with gold; and another
man tells me It Is like a fountain, and
It is like a tree, and It is liko a triumph
al procession; and the next man I meet
telis me It is all figurative. I really
want to know, after the body Is resur
rected, what they wear and what they
eat, and I have an immeasurable curi
osity to know what it is, and how it is,
and where it is.
Columbus risked his life to find this
continent, and shall we shudder to go
out on a voyage of discovery which
shall reveal a vaster and more brilliant
country? John Franklin risked his
life to find a pasrage between Icebergs,
and shall we dread to find a passage to
eternal summer? Men In Switzerland
travel up the heights of the Matterhorn
with alpenstock Hud guides and rockets
and ropes and. getting half way up,
stumble and fall down In a horrible
massacre. They just wanted to say
they had been on the tops of those high
peaks. And shall we fear to go out for
the ascent of tbe eternal hills which
start a thousand miles beyond where
stop the highest peaks of the Alps,
when In that ascent there Is no peril?
A man doomed to die stepped on the
scaffold aud said in joy, "Now, in ten
minutes I will know the great secret."
One minute after the vitat funotion
ceased toe Utile child that died last
night knew more than Jonathan Ed
wards, or 8t. Paul blroselr, before he
died. Friends, the exit from this world,
or death, If you please to call It, to the
Christian Is glorleus explanation. It
Is demonstration. It is illumination.
It to sunburst. It is the opening of all
the v'ndowa. It Is shutting up the
catechism of doubt and the unrolling
of all the scrolls of positive and accur
ate information. Instead of standing
at tbe foot of the ladder and looking
up, it la standing at the top of the lad
der and looking down. It Is the last
mystery taken out of botany and geolo
gy and astronomy and theology.
Ob, will It not be grand to have all
questions answered ? The perpetually
recurring interrogation point changed
for tho mark of exclamation. All rid
dles solved. Who will fear to go out
on that discovery when all the ques
tions are to be decided which we have
been discussing all our lives? Who
shall not clap his hands lu tbe anticipa
tion ot that blessed country, if it be no
better than through holy curiosity cry
ing, "Tbe time of my departure is at
1 remark again we ought to have the
joy of the text, because, leaving this
world, we move into the beat society of
the universe. You see a great crowd
of people in some street, and you say:
"Who is passing there? What general,
what prince Is going up there? Well,
I see a great throng In heaven. I say:
"Who is the focus of all that admira
tion? Who Is the center of that glit
teriog company?" It is Jesus, the
champion of all worlds, the favorite of
Do yuu know what Is the tlrst ques
tion the soul will ask when it comes
through the gate of heaven? I think
tbe tlrst question will be, "Where Is
Jesus, tbe .Saviour that pardoned my
sin; that carried my sorrows; that
fought my battles; that won my victo
ries?" O radiant onel how I would
like to see thee! thou of the manger,
but without its humiliations; thou of
the cross, but without Its pangs; thou
of the grave, but without its darkness.
The Bt bio intimates that we will talk
with Jesus in heaven just as a brother
talks with a brother. Now what will
you ask bim first? I do not know. I
can think what I would ask Paul first
If I saw him in heaven. I think 1
would like to hear him describe the
storm that came upon the ship when
there were two hundred and seventy
five souls on the vessel, Paul being the
only man on board cool enough to des
cribe the storm. There is a facination
about a ship and the sea that I never
shall get over, and I think I would like
to hoar him talk about that first.
But when I meet my Lord Jesus
Christ, of what shall I first delight to
bear bim speak ? Now I think what It
Is. I shall first want to hear the trag
edy of his last hours, and then Lukes
account of the crucifixion, and Mark's
account ot the crucifixion, aud John's
account of the crucifixion will be noth
ing, while from the living lips of Christ
the story shall be told of the gloom that
fell, aud the devils that arose, and the
fact that upon bis endurance depended
the rescue of a race, and there was
darkness In the sky, and there was
darkness in the soul, and the pain L v
cauie more sharp, and the burdens be
came more heavy, until the mob began
to swim away from the dying vision of
Christ, aud the cursing of the mob
came to his ears more faintly, and his
hands were fastened to the horrizoutal
piece of the cross, and his feet were fast
ened to the perpendicular pieee of the
cross, and his bead fell forward in a
swoon as he uttered the last moan and
oried, "It Is finished!" All heaven will
stop to listen until the story is done,
and every harp will be put down, and
every lip closed, and all eyes fixed upon
tho tfdl vine narrator until the story Is
dou^and then, at the tap of the baton,
tho e&fnal orchestra will rouse up; fin
ger on suing of harp, and lips to the
mouth ot trumpet,there shall roll forth
tho oratorio of tbe Messiah, "Worthy
-to a^fajftrab that ?waa -jE~-"~f" ' "*oiw
blessing aid riches undhoiftv
and power, world without end!"
What be endured oh, who can ten, '
To save onr souls from death and hell!
When there was between Paul and
that magnificent Personage only the
thinness of the sharp edge of the sword
of the executioner, do you wonder that
he wanted to go? O my Lord Jesus,
let one wave of that glory roll over us!
Hark! I hear the wedding bells of heav
en ring now. Tbe marriage of the
Lamb has come, and the bride hath
made herself ready. And now for a
little while goodbye! I have no mor
bid feelings about the future. But if
anything should happen that we never
meet again in this world, let us meet
where there are no partings. Our
friendships have been delightful on
earth, but they will be more delightful
in heaven. And now 1 commend you
to God and tho word of his gra ;e. which
is abio to build us up and give us an in

Chicago, June 22.-/-A meeting nan
held at the Democrat le^ headquarters to
day by colored Democrats from all
parts of thecouutrv uudes th3 auspices
of a negro national Democrat to com
mittee Many of those prwcui claim
ed to be K??pui 'he.in . but said that the
treatment of the colored race by Presi

of j ustice. They said they desired hence
forth to euter the l)"inucratic fold. De
fore the permanent organization was
effected addresses on the tariff and
President Harrison's alleged Ill-treat
me id of the colored people were made
by several delegates. The following:
is an extract from one of the speeches
?'VVearo here to day because we be
lieve the Republican party has outlived
its usefulness, at least so far as it re
lates to the negro, and it Is our duty to
cast ubout for a safe and more sure an
chorage. We believe that Grover Cleve
land, when President of the United
States, gave the t ?? st neseraneo possible
that under Democratic rule a free
American's best interests, bis liberty
and happiness were fully conserved.
1 know by experience ahd personal
observation that the civil, public and
political rights of my race were never
conserved by any executive than tnoy
were by David li. Hill, when he was
Governor of the great Empire Stale of
The political parties of the day are
not the parties of the last decade.
Their names are the same, but new men
represent them both. The great Dem
ocratic party has gained wisdom by ex
perience. 11 deals with great national
questions on fundamental principles.
It is forgetting the past unpleasant
ness, it is living and nourishing in the
grand and real present. The Hepubli
can party of today, which we turn
away from in sorrow, stands as a sec
tional party as a political necessity. It
is dictatorial, overbearing, autocrat
ic." The roll of delegates showed sev
enteen States represented.
