ALBLK W011K.S, nr '.w r. v. i they began to return to that Ord whofce j law of guidance is tho only safe rule of life. The text contemplates one of these grand national movements. They had been humiliated by the Philistines. Their, situation at length began to bear on their scni-ibilitics. While they were eutinfled with their conquered condition, there ii i - .. i .i i Vermont, ""mi ue u nop; lor ineui as a people. Cut wheu the yoke of their humiliation began to be irksome and the lobs of their national ark bitterly felt, then there were indications of tho return of a purified popular (spirit. Hut a pervading grief was not a fcure sign of a correct national con science. That unexcelled judge and statesmanlike governor, Samuel, met this issue by a determining test. This was his proclamation to tho people: "If ye do re turn unto the Lord with all your hearts, then put awaytlie strange god, aud Ah titrolh from among you, and prepare your hearts unto the Lord, and serve him only: and ho will deliver you out of the hand of tho Philistine." Tho people obeyed and in their obedienco showed that their repentance was real. There thero was a breaking of idols in their houses and their groves, while true altars wero erected to Hi in who is a Spirit, as they who worship him must wornhip in spirit and in truth. But this was not all ; it was bat preparative. Tbc great national movement was to bo a general gathering to observe a fust unto tho Lord at Mizpch. Then the multitudes came at tho bidding of Samuel. Then they bowed their heads and poured the water aud confessed their sin. Thero was a peculiar grandeur in this movement euch as tho -wtrt-M ha scarcely seen. An assembled nation, a nation with a history as marvelous as it is certain. Millions as one head bowed, and voices, as of many waters, mingled in the confession. The act was a national prayer. What was tho voieo of tho chict magis trate to summon that peoplo to this act of penitence? It was nothing, and yet it was everything. If there had not been a national sentiment, no human voice could have lifted them up aud impcllod them onward. Samuel's then had gono down tho winds without eliciting an echo in ro responso. Tho peoplo would have been fit only for their degredation. But this they had borne until they had begun to feel tho shamo of their situation and the recrimination of a national conscience. Wheu this was sufficiently matured, it fouud a kademhip in tho voice of Bamucl to brltig ltout in royalty to their father's Tho magistrates will then become Go. call ; the authority of earth, for the divii.. 'H wandttto of heaven, onco indeed, t.. "ibject, as wo have il In view of this a full force of the thus presented to us in ti,k -'cord, wo circumMances of tho divine "'ncsa cannot doubt, as I can see, tho correc oi me inierence that (iod has a relation with nations as well as with individuals. With the Israelites he certainly had : but sinill wo think that his care and correction was wholly confined to a single instance? We are not Inclined to believo such par- tiuiity js attributable to God. And, hai. pily, we are informed by tho Word of truth in such an unmistakable manner that wo cannot, for a moment, entertain such an error. Paul assures us that the nations arc the ministers, that is servant oi t.otl. V) hen wc accept this we do not thereby affirm that they are faithful ser vants, true ministers, but that God has a direct relationship with them, that is, he lias a work for them to accomplish, an ,,,t -..- .i.... . i . . ivi iiiciu iu icacu aim a course care fully marked for them to pursue. God deals not only with individuals, ts souls, but also with people in tho aggregate. This double relation begets what may seem to be a difference in his government. We need not, however, fear this relation alucc God is eternal and Impartial and what wans to be a difference, that is a partiality, i only the operation of the same law to different conditions of i.n. uianny. iHtiivnlnali break the law of their Ulng, more especially the higher law, their moral and religions obligations but the i-enalty docs not immediately fol- i k)W : ft trio't I ritl.rt-eoec f.,r w,t,MVi:,. I , , H . J'l.l it VII a wonderful st henic Lat been instituted, even by (iod himn-lf, whereby forgive ries can be obtained; whereas, if nation aud other organization break or fail to ubaerve the law of their being, jienalty is often immediate, while there is no w ay provided, no Great IjuUiiiule, and they roui bear the full rigor for all their w rongt. The death of Christ it a gift to the individual son!; it does not apply in expiation to the nations. They are held rigidly to the rule of their moral obliga-l tii-us. We aee arean for thia seeming1 difference iu tremmeut, in the fact UaU ' nations and other popular bodies bsye no ' : S h , 4S Vrim .XT Ac., 4'.lyl;i2 lioes. wheu they are trwu to the law of their being, faithful to tho great course which God ha sppoiitcd them, their pro. gres is as resistless tho mighty rivers. If they are true to tlx moral and material interests which G)d lias committed to their care, throPi;! every pass and clr cumstMnnc of their career, they have the substantial evidence of their faithful stewardship. While, on tho other hand, if they are false to thene trusts, if their power is used to violate the principles or. dained oi old for the regulation of human affairs, if they are even timid to walk thoso strong paths to high accomplish ments which tho voice of opportunity, which is the voice of (iod, has bidden them press with determination, then must they feel in disaster or disorganization and ruin tho penalty of their mistaken or per verse course. I need not refer you to history, though every page is a point of proof. We havo bad enacted within our own view two of the most gigantic trag edies which the world has known, and they are none other than solemn yet fear ful vouchers to tho principle indicated. Tho struggle with tho .South and the car nage of Franco, lho tremblings of which in their subsidence have scarcely ceased in tho universal heart, wero tho stern calls of an avenging hand to answer to the crimes, on tho ono hand, of slavery and, on tho other, of moral disolutcncss. 1 know, brethren, that it is very disa greeable to bo obliged to listen to tho se vere cxposuro of publio sins. Tho man who seeks favor, plays upon tho good will, glosses the faults of thoso whom ho would conciliate, b trains a fact to accom modate tbo foolish freak of some favorite and round tho sharp corners of a truth un til it will roll like a lio. Verily ho has his reward. Ho has a multitude of friends, but such friends yes ho has his reward 1 But ho who cares more for truth than for falsehood, whetcvor advantage tho latter may promiso must speak his convictions which, if ho bo a close observer, will bo wholcsomo, even if severe. It is quite proper that I should speak of individual sins some of which have been specialized by tho proclamation which convenes us to day. Vat in my mtud tbo day la morn appropriately devoted to tho considera tion of thoso forms of sin which have been committed through tho perversion of our citizenship. Tbeso more directly and per sistently bear on oar well being as a na tion and our attention is not often called to thcra as wo havo tho others moro im mediately in view in our ordinary wor ship. To-day, therefore, I can indicate but a single class of wrongs, aud from these ono alone must bo selected, since in tho opinion of tho speaker it is most subtle and yet most threatening of tho evils which affect ns as a nation. Because this form of wrong is subtle aud iu order that I may be understood, I am compelled to illustrate. My boy hood home was ou the banks of tho Mis sisquoi. This stream how-much-socver loved had a peculiar power to carry a dread to our household. Our friends, you know, are often to be feared moro than our enemies. That friendly river, so lov ingly encircling tho farm for nearly the cutiro year, would have its periodic moods of savago enjoyment to rend and devour, The beauty and worth of the farm lay in tbc Intervale meadow, the bot tom Jand of the river tho product, in of Us shifting current. This portion fact, "iotlm laud. Toil we never so was tho .

Thus, yea ' after year, we toiled and wero compelled to watch tho wasting work, while gradu ally from the opposite shore appeared, as if to mock us, a corresponding formation of stone, sand and drift-wood, where only tho nettle, the w ild vine and the willow would grow. As the meadow wanted, to but a skeleton strip, this desolate bar ran out and up in disgusting proportions. This work of tho water course produced an im pression on ono member of that household at least, winch the Imagination, often brooding in unhappy mood, was not slow to catch and form Into an impersonated Fate of terrific shajie and malignant f pit it. l ubllc sentiment bears In its activities all the marked features of this mountain stream. Wo cannot, if wo wonbl. lone . , ......... w hat is beginning to be of such signifi cance. There was a time when the com- the essential were moral uprightness and Intellectual independence, istich meadow land vii the heart of the nation. The great, because great and their greatness being known, etranocd tho national as pirations so that in Its Infancy the popular character acquired the respectability of mature manhood. Those names repine iu history and rise in the memory, and we know that around them rallied tho un spoken multitudesour fathers who wero tho rock that dashed back tho waves of tho Fuglish sea aud the rock on which our Institutions were based. That day passed. The shifting current turned its force upon the supporting but exposed banks. We cannot divino what caprice directed its course; but the water course ha changed its lied. The two qualities, moral uprightucss aud intellec tual independence, are ucarly tho oppo site of those traits now held iu high ap proval. Let a man stand up in his place like a mountain, what if his imperial head summons the mist of thought and tho (spirit of enterprise to form around him in clouds of precious raiu to break iu showers to refresh mauy a soul, yet ho Is regarded, more often than otherwise, but an obstruction to this flowing and danc ing age. G rand characters, true to God and true to man, have not ceased to exist, but very few of them have been, for years, in public stations. Tho channel of tho popular sentiment has changed. Auother standard of appreciation has been erected. We want to-day keenness and suavity as individual characteristics. Tho demand is so imperiously mado that thoso who possess them not aro beyond tho palo of publio favor. It must be iu to-day's preacher, in to-day's lawyer, in to-day's physician, in to-days publisher, and above all in that place whero the sentiment can manifest itself fully, in to-day's politician. He who Isolds the offices must be keen and ho must bo smooth. He docs, indeed, often turn out a dirk I The consequence of such a drift of sen timent is before our eyes. Tho forming sand-bar arises over against tho meadow of former times. Tho growth of the net tle, and the wild vine, and tho willow is prodigious. Tho observer, lookinf on tho prospect exclaims, Men are not bom to day. The usue of the age it willows and nclllcs and cormorant vines. It is said that tho peoplo arc cheated of their rights, while their prospective privileges aro sold : that tho cities are largely con trolled by rings and lho stales by corpora tions. Whilo the towns, aro not an inch behind iu tho goueral course of reckless ness, but tho partizan cliques are outma neuvcrlng themselves even aud riding with lash aud spur tho jaded public. Somo may feel that this description is overdrawn, but ho will not think so who has intelligently read our leading jour nals for the last year ; ho will not think so who has been brought in connection with the manipulations of political schemers. Wo are politically whero the Israelites were. What difference is there whether the Philistines that hold largely our laud are from our own midst or from beyond our border? AVe have as a peoplo worshipped tho gods of tho Philistines. Ashtaroth and Dngon ariso in our homes, in our groves and iu our political convo cations. This false sentiment which has erected a pernicious standard of character is the very inspiration which our gods have breathed in the popular spirit. The New York condition of things is but a warning, for thero tho realization of that era which this sentiment would inaugu rate is illustrated and forecasted. That city has been as much a devotee to the False aud Fearful as ever Ephesus was to Diana, or Corinth to Venus. There is now, indeed, the indication of a renewal of the public conscience, lt has begun in f,'ew York.

Amelia Urooks, aged fifty-one years, died at her Liiinore Van Wort leaned forward from tlie hotel w indow, and made a per-! le t pU lure of heraclf, a ouly a worldly, learned coquette knew bow, and Julian St. Cloud, coming up with hi porttnun U'ftu, and Jack ilavershaw, from the de pot, Mopped short, threw his cigar out In the grass, and muttered an expression al once impious and nnl&hioiiable. Well! said that walking refrigerator, Jack ilavershaw. What's the matter? Don't you see that womau al the win dow? Yes, innocence. 1 see Miss Van Wort ; but Julian, my boy, I've seen her before, and am uot at all struck. iSho is not for us she is rich, old fellow, and the man that approaches her Is at onco t down as fortune-hunter. Julian looked once more toward the picture. Il was a iM'fect one. There was a re gal littlo head, with a rrown of shining hair, a low white forehead, and dark, soft eyes, aud a mouth exceedingly full of vanity and pride, and taken altogether, they made a very aristocratic face. Then thero was a dross of pale bluo silken t ufl", w ith plaits and edges of white lace iu the open waist, aud loose, flowing sleeves; and thero was a glim, mer of jewels at her throat, and on her small, w hite lingers. It's a pity, Jack! She Is too beautiful to bo rich, ho said. Laura, coma here, said Miss Van Wort, as she saw tho pair coming up the walk. Peep through tho curtain and tell mo who that is with Ilavershaw. Don't let them seo you for tho world, for I am sure they have been looking at mo and talk ing. Dear me, what a splendid-looking man! Laura Leo looked cautiously out, and than sat back with a laugh. That is Julian St. Cloud. What a splendid name! And he is a clerk in tho Gcucral TobI Office. Oh I And hasn't a thousand dollars with which to bless himself. Well, ho probably isn't to blams. Ho would bo, if he should muko lovo to you. This is tho way it begun, and if you will havo palicnco, I'll tell you bow it elided. St. Cloud had a leavo of absenco for two weeks, aud as ho was not likely to havo another for a year, ho must neces sarily roako the most of it, and see all that was to be seen. So be dressed himself in his finest, and went down to Uio parlor with Jack Harvorshaw, that very night of his arri- Thero wero many visitors, and with tho dreamy music, the perfutuo, the filmy laces and gleaming silks, tho long draw. ing-rooms were like fairy land, or bet ter, liko our ideas of that mythical place. Just under a chandelier whore lho light fell with tho best effect, sat Misa Van Wort, in a pretty confusion of lavender silk, lace and pearls, her queenly head resting on tho green covering of her chair her face wearing an expression of su premo indifference to tho whito-gloved gentlemen and chattering ladies who stood or sat near her. You won't bo content until you have singed your wings like tho rest of us. So come along and be Introduced, said Jack, and presently tho handsome post ofilco clerk was bowing over tho jeweled hand of tho heiress. You are a stranger I am quite suro, she said, raising her eyes with that beautiful expression so well and unluckily known, aud wo aro a set of impostors. Will I need a guardian?
