Ordination of the Chaplain of the 25th
A Council convened yesterday forenoon at
the High Street Church Vestry, for the exami
nation of Mr. Edward B. Furbish, son of D.
H. Furbish, Esq., of this city, preparatory to
his ordination as an Evangelist, for the purpose
of becoming Chaplain of the 25th Maine regi
ment. The council consisted of Fastors and
delegates from the 2d Parish, 3d Parish, High
Street,State Street, Bethel and West Churches,
Portland, and the 1st Church, Westbrook.
Rev. Dr. Caruuthers was choseu Moderator,
and Rev. Horatio llsley, Scribe.
The examination of Mr. Furbish having
proved satisfactory, it was voted to proceed
with (lie ordination, and to assign the parts
for the services of the same.
In the afternoon the services of ordination
took place at the High Street Church. The
25th regiment, commanded by Col. Fessenden,
and accompanied by the Portland Rand,
marched in from Camp Lincoln and took seats
in the pews on the lower floor of the Church.
After the soldiers had got seated, the house
was filled to overflowing by the ladies and
gentlemen who had waited outside until the
regiment had entered. The services then pro
ceeded as follows:
Invocation,reading of scriptures and prayer,
by Rev. Mr. Southworth of Westbrook.
Singing—“Uo preach my gospel, saitli the
Sermon by Rev. Dr. Carruthers from Job
21,15—'“What is the Almighty that we should
serve him ? and what profit should we have,
If we pray unto him t"—ami 1st Timothy 4, 8,
‘•Godliness is profitable unto all things.”
Ordaining prayer by Hcv. Mr. M Trill of the
Bethel Church.
Charge to the candidate by Rev. Dr. Cltick
Right hand of leliowship by Rev. Horatio
Daley of West Church. •
Address to the officers and soldiers of the
25th, by Rev. Dr. Bosworth of the Free Street
Baptist Church.
Concluding prayer by Rev. Mr. Sewall, of
Luneuberg, Vermont.
Benediction by Rev. E. B. Furbish the can
Prior to tlie benediction the audience joined
in singing—the Band leading—the by inn, “God
bless our native land,” to the tune of America.
The services throughout were of the most
interesting character,and were listened to with j
the strictest attention. The ordaining prayer !
by Rev. Mi. Merrill, was fervent and impres
sive. The sermon of Dr. Carruthers was only
about twenty-five minutes in delivery, but it
was one of his finest efforts. The charge by
Dr. (.'bickering was earnest and faithful. The
right hand of fellowship by Rev. Mr. llsly was
the gushing out of a warm heart from one
brother to another. Dr. Bosworth, in his ad
dress to the officers and soldiers, was peculiarly
eloquent and happy. The occasion was a sol
emn one, and it w ill be long remembered.
After the services were over the regiment
again formed, and with the Band, marched
back to the camp.

The Richmond Whig of the 1st, says infor
mation from Gen. Lee's army indicates that
an important flattie is impending, and will
take place at the close of this week.
Gen. McClellan’s army is on this side of the
Potomac, and is advancing.
The Confederate army is in excellent condi
tion and eager for the tray.
The Whig speaks of President Lincoln's pro
clamation as ordaining a servile, insurrection
in tile Confederate States, and says it, is not
misunderstood either by the North or the
South, and adds, ** It is a dash of the pen to
destroy lour millions ol our prosperity, and is
as much as a bit! Ibr the slaves to rise in in
surrection, with the assurance of aid from the
whole military and naval power ol the United
Stales. It speaks of tile cruelty of the Ad
ministration, and says Gen. liutler is a saint
compared with his master.
The Whig also says our military operations
tire henceforth to assume a very grave charac
ter. The (tends new programme will necessa
rily destroy all terms lielween us.
The next campaign will Ire a tremendous
one, Itoth for the magnitude and character of
the operations. Let our authorities prepare
tin- whole strength of our people for the tre
mendous shock. The enemy is making great
preparations, as well as Issuing fiendish proc
lamations. We must respond with equal en
ergy. Il we do not, we are lost; but we will
do it.
The Whig has the following information:—
Yesterday the Yankees advanced on Warren
ton, taking the sick and wounded prisoners
and parolling them. The movements of Lee
ami Jackson were towards that place on Sat
urday, hut their exact movement is not known.
It is enough to know that our Generals under

the following:
In the confederate Senate on the 29th. Mr.
Semines of La., submitted the following joint
Resolved, by the Congress of the Confeder
ate States. That the proclamation of Abraham
Lincoln, President of tlie United States of
America, issued at the city ol Washington in
the year 18112. wherein he declares that on the
first day of January, in the year of our Lord,
18(53, all persons held as slaves within any
State, or designated parts of a State, whereof
the iteople shall be in rebellion against the U.
S., shall l>e henceforth and forever Iree, is lev
elled against the citizens of the Confederate
States, and as such is a gross violation of the
usages of civilized warfare, an outrage on the
rights of private property, and an invitation
for an atrocious w ar, and therefore should be
held up to the execration of mankind, and
counteracted by such severe retaliatory meas
ures as in the judgment of the President may
be best calculated to secure its withdrawal or
arrest its execution.
Mr. Clark ol Mo., moved that flie resolution
be referred to the committee on foreign affairs,
lie was in favor of declaring every citizen of
the Southern Confederacy a soldier, authoriz
ed to put to death every man caught on our
soil in arms against the government.
Mr. Semines of La., said the resolution had
not been drawn without reflection. The ques
tion of retaliation was exclusively an execu
tive one, to be regulated by circumstances, but
it was proper that the legislative department
of the government should express its approval
of the retaliation contemplated by the resolu
Mr. Henry of Tenti., said the resolution did
not go fur enough. He favored the passage of
a law providing that upon any attempt being
made to execute the proclamation of Abraham
Lincoln we immediately hoist the bluck Hag.
and proclaim a war of extermination against
all invaders of tilt- soil.
Mr. Phelan, of Mississippi, said that he had
always been in favor of cuuductilig tbc war
under the black Hag. If that Hag had been
raised at Manassas a year ngo the w ar would
have been ended ere now.
Mr. Yancey, of Alabama, moved that the
pending resolution, together with the resolu
tions submitted by him some time since rela
tive to retaliation, etc.. Is* reii*rr,.il In a ..-li.-t
committee of three,jukI he made the specinl
order for Wednesday next.
Mr. Burnett, of Kentucky, moved that all
of said resolutions he referred to the commit
tee on the judiciary; this was agreed to.
Gen. Beauregard, Sept. 24th, officially an
nounced his assumption of tin* command of
tile Department of South Carolina and Geor
gia. lie says:—Ii: entering upon the duties
which may involve at an early day the defence
of two of the most important cities in the Con
federate States against the most formidable ef
forts of our most powerful enemy, I shall rely
on the ardent patriotism and the intelligent
and unconquerable spirit of the officers and
men under my command, to sustain success
fully and to maintain our posts, and the credit
of our country and our ow n honor. And to
avoid irremediable disasters, it is essential
that all should yield Implicit oltedieuce to any
orders emanating from superiors in authority.
The Richmond W hig says the entire rebel
losses in the Manassas battles do not exceed
5,000, ami that the losses in tint engagements
in Maryland range between 5,000 and 0,000.
