SERMON ON The Death of Capt. William I.. Haskell, Who died at Chambersburg, Pa., Oct. 18th, from wounds received in the battle of Anti ctam, delivered in the Baptist Church in Yarmouth, Oct. 25th, by Rev. Charles F. Foster, Pastor. l ext :—1 Here w I»0 discharge in that war. [Eecl. viii. 8. We live ic a sorrowful day. The quiet en joyment of t'ie fireside is broken by the sound of weeping. Mourning hearts fill the land. We go forth in the morning hopeful: we re turn at night bowed down with grief; fora great shadow has swept across our path. The news of sudden disaster reaches us, and our hopes are dashed in a moment. Such has been the experience of many hearts,—of many households during the past twelvemonth.— All this is the result of strife. It is with us the fruit of astern necessity which has driven the strong and vigorous but beloved ones of our homes to the conflict with a wicked and desperate foe. War is, in its best aspect, a calamity to be dreaded, and to be avoided if possible by eve ry means consistent with a regard for justice, truth and order. It is to be reckoned as the greatest curse which has fallen upon the na tions of the earth since the dawn of history.— ; And though the Bible has exhibited the plans of campaigns and the pictures of conflicts under 1 the superintendence of Jehovah Himself, and though the sacred wriliugs imply the necessity of strife so long as error and injustice seek to obtain the mastery over the true and the right, yet war is an evil, a curse, and a judgment up on our people. In this light is it presented by the inspired historian, wheu he records David’s sin in numbering his host, and the sad conse quences of the act. Three forms of chastise ment were offered to the sinning king, from which he might select; either seven years of famine, or three months of disastrous fighting, or three days of pestilence. Even the warrior was daunted at the thought of that devastation which must attend repeated defeat, and he chose rather to fall directly into the hands of God. War, existing as a necessity on our part, and also as a Divine judgment we believe, is now upon us. Looking over the face of our strick en land, at the disorder in our public, our business, and our domestic interests, gazing with tender hearts at the sight before us, of the wasted strength and beauty of manhood, and remembering that this is but a repetition of the wo of many whose horizon has been sud denly darkened at noonday, wc cannot help referring to those words of the Psalmist, ex pressive of deep humility under the Divine chastisements, “ come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations He hath made in the earth!” leiu unguier ua\ is nopeu lor. l ms Slate of things cannot last forever. Peace, w ith the blessings of a free and Christian government, and the reunion of these S'ates, rises in pleas ing prospect before us, to lie fully realized when the chastisement of war shall have been sufficiently endured. When Jehovah shall have seen that we penitently and trustfully seek His face, anrl that the purposes of discipline are accomplished, then will He doubtless with draw! the scourge. For He too, “ maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth ; He break eth the bow and cultetb the spear in sunder; He burnetii the chariot in the tire.” Yes, in this war, dreadful as it seems, there will be a discharge. The welcome shout shall ring through the land,—the arm of the foe is brok en, the giant head of the rebellion is in the dust, and peace with her attendant blessings returns to us again. God grant that this time shall speedily approach, when the loved ones shall come back to our homes, freed from the obligations under which they are now placed in the arduous defence of our country. But, beloved, there is a war, in which there is no discharge. The wise man has most graph ically inserted the illustration of the text. He here alludes to that event which must befall all mankind. He likens death to a struggle in which every one of us is compelled to partici pate. The illustration, no doubt, covers the idea of the apprehension as wdl as that of the final realization of the event. Man is a frail being. Born with a perishable organization which needs to be watched and guarded at every point, the whole of his life may be re garded as an attempt to ward off the approach of death. There are multitudes, who all their life-time are subject to bondage through fear, and even those who are apparently the most dauntless or indifferent, are nevertheless care ful to shun the path where danger lurks. The appropriateness of the figure of the text is at once manifest, when death is viewed in its true light, as a retribution. As a penalty for sin, it is an all-controlling evil. It is a part of the original curse so manifest in its character, that men would escape it if they could. The idea of suffering, an<l pain, and of an unknown fu ture is associated with It. The soul shrinks back tremblingly at the thought of all this.— The passing out of the world, indeed, divested of the attendant distress, and apprehension’ cannot la’ a punishment to the believer. To him the surroundings of the tomb, and the mode of his exit, constitute the curse. Thus he suffers for transgression, and from the suf fering his soul draws back. Life is, then a con stant struggle with death. Our mortal exist ence is a warfare. But let us turn to the prominent thought of the text. It is not the fact that death is the enemy of the human race which especially claims our attention on this solemn occasion. It is that none are exempt from this warfare, and that none can escape from the destroyer’s power. “ There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath lie power in the day of death.” Oh! there are some of the noble and good of earth whom we would gladly withhold from the final conflict. There are some whose very frailty.and beauty would seem to exempt them from such a dread necessity, and there are others whose man ly vigor, we fain hope will insure them at least for a season from the assault of the de stroyer. But alas! there is no discharge in that war. The fearful conscription is at work, and death is everywhere. The old are not exempt. For though the grasshopper lie a burden, though fear lie in the way, and desire fail, the foe must be encoun tered by the aged, with trembling limbs, and palsied hands, and weakened energies. The yrmny are not exempt. lie whose ten der age keeps him beneath the parental roof, while his older companions have gone to battle, meets the adversary at home. We think there arc places of security for those whom God has given ns. we put them deep in our hearts, we keep them in the seclusion of the tire-side cir cle, that the rough conflict may be avoided, but how often are we taught the lesson that peril hides in the very bosom of fancied safety and repose. The soldier returns rough and scarred while the brother or child tenderly watched falls a victim to the destroyer at home. Let the young remember that death is their lot. Mature manhood is not exempt. The intel ligent, the active, the wealthy are not a prive leged class. How have the mighty fallen! now is the equality of mankind here demon strated! Dives and Lazarus meet. They die and are buried. One event happeneth to all: It is appointed unto men once to die. So in the struggle of perishing mortality with its greatest foe, there is no discharge. 1 have aimed to expand a scriptural illustra tion so as to impress the truth that death is the common lot of man. The Bible, however, by the same kind of illustration communicates a corresponding truth of a consolatory nature. There is victory in death. The laurel fresh ens above the mournful cypress. Mortality is swallowed up in life,—that life which the ev er-blessed Son of God reveals. He has con guered the last enemy. He has risen from the grave. In this demonstration of His power, Christ brought life and immortality to light. Henceforth we may look to Him, not for the avoidance of the coutest, but for final victory, “ Thanks be to God, ” says the Apostle, “ who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. ” What a glorious result to a life-long conflict! the resurrection of the just! the res tortion of these bodies, and the clothing of these spirits with an immortal freshness! the attainment of unspeakable bliss at the right hand of God! This is the victory of faith! I turn to contemplate for a moment a few features of the life of him whose remains are with us to-day. Were we to consider only the outward aspect of the case, our language would lie only that of surprise, perhaps of mur muring. Who could be so poorly' spared from earth, as the young, the noble, the educated, the brave,—the accomplished scholar, the gal lant soldier, the affectionate husband and sou? Shall not such a one be exempt from the sad decree? All! there is no discharge in that war, and we must bow with a trustful spirit to the superior wisdom of God. William L. Haskell was horn at Poland, in this State, January 7th, 1838. In his earlier years he evinced a mature manliness, and a de termined energy of character not common at that age. His parents tell us that he w’as al ways a manly boy. This feature l»ecame in tensified in the subsequent development of those traits which constitute true manhood. Every one who became acquainted with him must have perceived in his bearing a dignity not assumed. His desire for knowledge, which couiu uoi no gruunea witn the mimed oppor tunities of liis Imme, led him to seek an edu cation elsewhere, and at considerable sacri fice. He began his course preparatory for college at the academy in this village (Yar mouth) about eight years ago. He entered Bowdoin College, and graduated in I860, hav ing spent his vacations in teaching, so as to obtain tlie means for continuing his studies. It was during his collegiate course that he taught several schools in this town, and so became well known to our citizens, and espe cially to the children and youth, for whom he had a peculiarly kiud regard. After graduat ing, he was associate Principal of the Oak Seminary in Vassalboro,’ for a year or more, until the time of his entering the army. Here i it was then that the call of duty reached him. An ouly brother had been taken prisoner by the enemy at Bull Uun, and the report of his death, though afterwards proved to be errone ous, caine home to sadden the hearts of friends. Feeling the urgency of the ease, and the de : mand upon him in the hour of his country's j peril, William enlisted at once, resolutely and heartily. He entered the service as 1st Lieu ■ tenant, Co. B. 7th Maine regiment. This was | in August, 1861. He shortly left for Balti more. During the winter he came home, and was engaged for some months in the Quarter master's department, at Augusta. While thus ! occupied the battle of Williamsburg was fought, in which the “7111" gained such laurels. ; Impatient for active service, he immediately I thereupon hastened to join his regiment. He was In the tierce and repeated encounters be fore Richmond, and subsequently in Maryland, j Previous to his last battle a Captain's eoin i mission had been issued to Inn, but it did not reach him unliljhe lay wounded and suffering at Chambersburg. On the evening of the 17th of September, just five weeks previous to the arrival of his remains in this place, his regiment, after a wearisome march, reached the scene of the battle which had been raging through the day in tlie vicinity of Sharpsburg. They were at once ordered to the perilous task of dislodg ing the enemy from a neighboring hill, on ! which they were securely posted, and con | cealed by an orchard. The slaughter was ter rifle. Placed between the concealed fires of an overwhelming force, their ranks melted be fore the enemy. Capt. Haskell, then Acting Adjutant, was prominent in the charge, until his horse having been three times shot, and becoming unmanageable, he dismounted, and at that instant a bullet penetrated both his knees, and he was prostrated. He lay upon the bat tle-field until Saturday, when lie was removed through the kindness of Capt. Jones. At Cbatnbersburg, to which place he was taken, he received the best ol' care and medical at tendance in the family of Mr. Hamilton, until his death, which occurred quietly and peacably on Friday, the 18th inst. It is scarcely needful for me to speak of his excellent personal qualities in the presence of those who knew him so well. Of his valor, many who arc here to-day, who have seen him in times of strife and danger, can testify. He, like yourselves, knew beforehand the extreme peril which attended that fearful onset in which he lost his lire. Yet he flinched not in tlie execution of the order. Conspicuous on that day, while mounted upon a horse whose color made him a prominent mark for the ene my. he was at every point where the shafts of death flew thickest. And after he was wound ed, while lying with but little prospect of a re moval from the battle-field, his cool courage, and his unselfish nature, manifested tliem selves in the letter written with a pencil to his wife, and in his request to a brother officer to “leave him to his fate, and take care o( him self.” That he was actuated, not by a sordid mo tive, but by a noble patriotism in going him self to the service of his country, I have not the least doubt. He has fallen a worthy sac rifice for the maintenance of a worthy cause_ a martyr to the sentiments which actuate every true lover of his country. I call to mind with a peculiar sadness the words which I address ed to him, a little more than a year ago, on the occasion ot his marriage. They were the la mi'iar and oft-quoted line of the Latin poet: “Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori,”—it is sweet and proper to die for one’s country. I lit tle thought then that j was uttering a kind of prediction,so soon to be realised. I am told that the verse was a favorite expression with him, and that he often repeated it, as though the sen timent were thoroughly incoporated in his soul. Hi* consecration was the result of his firm con viction of duty. Under this impulse he enlist ed; uuder this he fought; and thus he died, a true patriot. But to these natural excellences, we are as sured that the one thing needful was joined. Tli^fc was a basis of character w hich the grace of God must have laid. His attention was etClIed to the subject of religion while pur suing h.s studies at tiie Academy, and he then entertained a Christian hope, although he made no public profession. To his lriends, however, he was at that time free to express his religious convictions and belief. The tes timony of one who was intimately associated with him iu Camp life goes to prove that he never lost his regard for the truth as revealed in Christ. In his last hours the veil which had been partially drawn over his religious life by self-distrust or by the anxieties of his profession, was completely removed, and his faith appeared with fresh luster. A minister of the gospel who attended him during his sickness thus writes. “He died in the adopt ing favor of God. and the saving hope of im morality and eternal lile. His end was peace.’' How satisfactory must this testimony be to ev ery Christian heart! What a victory is this in the warfare with death? “Thanks be to Him who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Friends, you who are so sorrowfully gath ered to-day to pay this tribute to the memory of one beloved and esteemed, let your hearts be cheered by those many circumstances at tendant upon his death, which were of a char acter to mitigate your grief. It was a kind Providence that saved him from a lingering death upon the battle-field, and placed him un der the care of those kind friends who watch ed over him to the last. It was almost a mi raculous interposition that led the father to his bedside just in season to receive his part ing words, and the messages of affection to loved ones at home. It is a pleasant thought that his body lies not in an unknown giave, | and that the hand of corruption has been stay | ed for us to look upon his lifeless, yet sugges tive features to-day. But most of all should it console your hearts, that he died trusting in God,—peacefully, calmly fell asleep iu hope of a resurrection in Christ. Beloved friends, comfort one another with these words. J»u, Ilia 'M.ni; v will ji.iiiit I||> III J|| III",line I commend yotir valor, exhibited in so many hard lights, and while I appreciate the glory • which your arms have won, I cannot help j most earnestly pointing out the importance of seeking that crown of glory which ladeth not away. You may return to the scene of con flict. Some of you may fall upon the battle field. In a holy cause like ours, the passage from the battle-field to Heaven is as direct as from the softest dying couch prepared by lov ing hands in peaceful homes. But, in order to make this happy transfer from the scene of strile to the rest above, the heart must be at peace with its God. The hero, who shall most successfully fight, is he who in the hour of death, can rest assured that the enmity ol his heart is conquered by grace, and that he has thus gained a victory over self. To him the gates of the eternal city shall open. It is for you now to obtain this assurance through the mediation of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our | prayers are for you while you remain in the camp, they will follow you when you go again | into battle, and we trust that the spirit of the brave ones who have fallen, with the Spirit also of our Divine Master w ill animate you in } the future. Brother! farewell for a little season; thou hast finished thy course; henceforth there is ] laid up for thee a crown of righteousness, j which the Lord the righteous Judge shall give j thee at that day; and not to thee only, but j unto all them also that lore His appearing.
