The remains of the dead Philosopher lay /ester flay In the house of his Mend, Samuel 8inclair, 69 West Forty-fifth street. They reelined in the Mack cloth covered casket in the rear parlor, with a tall temple of white flowers at the head and the flowery testimonials of loving bands scattered over the pall. J"?.**?1! ?? ? DBFjnriD PATSIOT looked as mobile and gentle as in 1 ire. The eyes were closed as calmly and lines about the mouth were drawn as peacefully as in sleep. The broad forehead was as smooth and placid as in the most pleasant days of his noble career, and the general contour of his face, as yet nnpinched by the chill hand of death, retained the look or lafge benevolence and childish innocence that had become its famous characteristic. THE COFFIN Is of solid chestnut wood, covered with black cloth. It is proiusely ornamented witn sliver moldings, and has three silver handles on each side and one on each end. T11K NOTICE IN THE IIBRALD that the body would be visible to those friends of the dead Philosopher wlio might desire to look npon it during the day brought such multitudes of visitors to the house that the parlors could not conveniently admit them, and it was found neces sary to tnrn away all but the immediate personal fiiemU of the deceased. A policeman was secured to keep back those who were not personally ac quainted with the family, in order that those who were might have the sad consolation of looking npon his features in quiet. The policeman had a trasy day or it. Men came who said, "We were not personally acquainted with Mr. Greeley, but we baa A LOVE AND AFFECTION FOB HIX that entitles us to look upon his body." "I cannot help it," said the policeman, "only friends nan i>e admitted to-day." "We were all his friends," re sponded the bystanders; but the policeman's duty was plain, and the unknown callers left, contenting themselves with the hope that they could view his remains to-day. A STEADY STREAM OF PERSONAL FRIENDS passed into the hall and lingered for a moment about the great patriot's coffin. Strong men looked npon his faoe with tears streaming from their eyes, and sobbed like children, and stooped hnd Impressed upon his calm white forehead the last kiss of an aflTection "like unto the love of wo man." Political friends who had battled by bl9 fide in his last great campaign, old heroes of many political struggles, who had felt and ackowledged the powerful help of his strong arm and pen in earlier days, and men who hod battled against him, came alike to his side and mutely paid the tribute of love and respect to his memory. States men have died and had honors paid them, but few have received such testimonials of AN UNSELFISH AFFECTION, ft love entwining itself abont the hearts or men, a personal endearment that might have been a thing apart from the colder tributes or respect and honor. The lireless champion or a universal bro therhood has been succes*rul rar beyond Presi dencies and leaderships, for hearts have been given him better than votes, and a holy enshrine ment grander than national honors. TnE OBSEQUIES. The trustees of the Tribune, at a meeting on Saturday, appointed a committee, consisting or Mr. Sinclair, Mr. Reld and Mr. Cleaveland, to take entire charge or the arrangements for Mr. Greeley's ftineral. They have fixed it lor Wednesday, at eleven o'clock, from the Church of the Divine Paternity (Rev. Dr. Chapin's), on Fifth avenue, at the corner or Forty-firth street. No special invita tions will be sent out; but it is already known that organizations of various kinds are taking formal iteps for attending In a body. The remains will lie In state throughout the day on Tuesday at such place as shall be announced in to-morrow's papers. TOE EVENT 111 THE CHIRCHES. Service* at Dr. Chapln's Church. At Dr. Chapln's church a somewhat denser con gregation than usual was assembled, In the belief chat the eloquent preacher who had ministered to Horace Greeley's religious lalth for twenty-live yeara wonld enter upon some euloglum of the de based. There were none of the intimate friends jf Mr. Greeley present. They were paying the sad 'ites of affection beside his remains. THK PEW n which the honored sage had pursued his dovo iona lor so many years $ the filth of sixth rom the door On the right hand side of the church is you enter. On the silver plate over its little door sthe inscription, "H. Greeley." This plate yesterday vas bordered with crape, and black drapery fes ooned the back and front of the pew. Many aournihl eyes were cast toward the sadly suggest ?e seat, where for so m any years the noble presence f the great champion was to be seen, in devout Mention to the words of the eloquent preacher, he head bent in prayer when the great preacher ?rayed, and even the lips following in mute mtisic he devotional chanting ol the cliolr. IN HIS THAYER ?r. Chapin touched the subject that tilled all hearts. ? follows:?"Sanctity to ns, oh Lord, the affliction hat has fallen upon our people. Sanctify it to hose afflicted children, that they may t?e able to ear up under the repeated waves* of affliction that ave rolled over them. Sanctify It to those with rhom he was closely associated in the things of re, and sauctlfv it to the great nation, over hadowed by its loss. The sermon was from the text of St. John, lv, 9:?"Jesus saith unto hlrn, Have I been o long with you and yet hast thou not known te, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the ather: and how sayest thou then shew me the uther?" It was devo ted to a theological disquisition on lie realization of the presence of God in Jesus hrist, and not until the close did Mr. Chapin refer p the death of Mr. Urecley. Then he spoke as fol >ws:? The realization of God In Jesus is a power to In ilre men nobly In the work of liie: it is a power > sustain them triumphantly In the struggle or eath. It was a power that Inspired and sustained ur Irlend, our brother, of whom TWO CONTINKNT8 AHK SPEAKING TO-HAV, nd of whom ir I do not say much now, It is be itise I cannot speak adequately and because there | e occasions that transcend words. More ?mpeteut tongues and pens than mine ill illustrate the character, will write e epitaph of Horace Ureeley. His name ill be honored with reverence and love id sorrow by dilttring Hps; for it was the pecu ,rlty or this man that he filled many circles of ? man interest and sent a potent Influence rough them a.I. The homos iill'l hearths ol iho&e who knew Mm best win keep his acta and words Id tender freshness. THE POLITICAL WOULD, Accordant or discordant, as it may be, with his peculiar views, will lament an honored leader; the workman will miss a fellow workman who labored by his side and for his cause; the freed man will not forget him until he forgets the record of his scars and the breaking of his chaius; THB rati, TUB PKBSS, TUB PLOUUH, will be symbols of his memory. Tbeie is not a aobie cause or kind work of man that will not feel lus loss and Bend its echo of regret. And a great nation that, when beat, passion and transient ex citement passes away, Is a Just and generous nation, will ftx him in his place among the trulv ?Mat and good men. Therefore he needs no lengthened or elaborate eulogy from me. But npon oae point 1 may speak?1 ought to sneak here and ?aw, and that fo clone accordance wtth the theme af thin discourse. Mr. Qreeley was Or OUR HOUSEHOLD OP FAITH Ifcia wag hie chosen place of worship. We shall miaa MM here as one of the moat familiar links in ?araaaDeiatton of the Sabbath and sanctuary. 1 shall mlas hia aa one af the most fMrtHar linka in connection with this church and people for twenty ftnfcypsre. Looking through the vlsla of that time among: thoee af (Mr oemparatlve yaath, who are now thinning and scattering away. I recognise MM M among my earliest and truest Wends: lie wae ? ? -r _ # no PAi?-w?Arir*a chrmtum, but was alwaya in sUendaaoe in stem and sun shine, health permit Una. He was % flUthful and bumble worshipper. He gave bis ready help In all klads of charitable and denomtaatiofirwork. He was not meraly a pewhoMer or hiamt He waa a sympathetic coworker. Hia was no holiday taith, worn for a time-serving purpose. It waa not pat on Mm. It grew oat of him, the earttest ingrain convictioa of hta yea th and after 1Mb. Had he aimed at popularity ha would have oancsaMd it, aa many do, under other names and other lorae; for, although thta ts A PAITH or IBB PMOPI.B, tn a worldly and snperBcial sense, it la not a popu lar faith, nut even now it is strangely misconceived and bitterly deaonaced. With hi-n conviction was an obligation, sad he flxnty believed It aad ex pressed it: and yet his large aad lKgai table mlad could not hold its belief In any narrowilmits or cut it off from the great continent of truth. He was not a sectarian, bat always said, Bad said truly, that we In our ecclesiastical position had not put ourselves ont of the Church, but had been put out In the cold. But I say with all tbli, this was liis chief conviction of the Divine Fatherhood. I da not say too much when 1 say the peculiar character of his work, the larare-hearted interest In humanity, came from hia faith in the universal Fatherhood or God and the universal ? brotherhood of man. Bo it' was bis inspiration in life we know, thank God, that it ~vaa HIS SUPPORT IN D1ATH. When wearied and worn with liie'a conflict, he sank upon the field and knew that all his life, of good or oi ill, was over. His last utterance was one of simple faltn and trust. Ho he oompassed a peaceful end. We always listen to catch tne dying words of great men. 1 know of none from a dvtng man so simple, so truthful, so grandly triumphant, as " a , * THOSE WORDS OF MR. QR1S&ST. "I know that my Redeemer llveth.*' That is vic tory for life. It is true it does not prove the cor rectness of any mode of Christianity. It may be no proof of Christianity itself, lint, after all, remem ber that he did not revert to tbi# jnrtjh in bis weak ness, but expressed in his hour of aylni~ TIIK WHOLE CONVICTION OF HIS MWB. He had lived it constantly, and remember, too, it is this Christian truth after alL There 1b a power in it that is not revealed in cold phllosopby or flippant worlcttines*. He who can say in the worldly conscience "1 know that my Redeemer llveth" is strong in the faith and the assurance of God, and strong too in the work of this world and strong when tho work of this world la by him to be done no more?"for he that hath seen Me," salth Jesus, " bath seen the Father." Mr. Hep worth ok the Great Joarnallat. The "cold snap" kept a great maay from church yesterday morning, but at Stetawsy Hall, although it was not quite full, the services were well at tended. Mr. nepworth preached from Hebrews, xil. 9?"We have bad fathers of our flesh, which corrected us, and wo gave them reverence; shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits and live?" At the close of an eloquent discourse he alluded to the departure of a great and respected journalist from the earth to that bourn from which no traveller returns in the following touching manner:? THE NATION'S LOBS. When a great affliction comes we are reminded of our own littleness. To-day we are here; to morrow'gone. A death has lately taken place for which the whole nation mourns. We can speak or him now because he is dead. I had almost seM that he died broken-hearted. He has been inter woven with the interests of this country for forty years, and Just at the close of of the ?est ex citing canvasses which we have known this truly food and great man "shook off this mortal coil." he turbulent waters are stilled at last, and the successful candidate receives the prayers or lorty millions, while the other lies pale and cold in death. When we forget his eccentricities we will erect a monument to the name of A MAN or WHOM AMERICA SHOULD BE PKOm. He was endowed with a large amount of great and true moral courage. I believe that his motives were as pure as any that ever throbbed in a hu man bosom. We ate forced to confess that he did what we would not have dared to do. Many men fill positions well, and yet we never leel their presence; but every one relt the presence ot this warm hearted man, who did what he thought was right and trusted the consequences to the ruture. He was a thoroughly good man, and his errors seem to have been those or judgment and not or heart. While intending to do right he otten did wroug; but how much you can forgive a man who tries to do good to the greatest number ! This country will uot iorget the lact that Horace Greely wanted to pour THE BALM OF UILEAD INTO THE l'tTBLIC HEART. How shall you and 1 meet the shadows that are sure to rail upon us f Take God as a rather and Christ as a brother and with their gnldance vou will traverse the dark passage and enter safely the pearly gates or the palace beyond. THE EVEN1NU SERMON?GREELEY'S CAREER AND DEATH. In the evening the hall was again crowded to suffocation, a rumor having gained circulation that this discourse of Mr. Hepworth would be upon the death of Mr. Horace Greeley. There was not a seat available alter seven o'clock, and chairs and bcncUes were ranged along the plat.orm to accom odate many who were unable to obtain scats else where. The hymn Through the va'ley and nhndow of death though X stray; Since Thou art my guardian, no evil I leer. Thy rod shall defend me, Thy otatl'l>e my stay. No liarin can befall with my Comforter near having been sung by the enormous congregation the speaker selected for his text, Acts ill., ?!?"The work whereunto I have called them." lie prefaced his sermon with an exhortation to the young men or New York to prepare lor the luture world, and retiring to the death or Horace Greeley, he said:? THE GREATNESS OP THE SORROW. It Is well lor us to stand still a moment in the presence or u great event. It is right and proper that we should learn the lesson which that provi dential event teuches us. A great sorrow has ralien upon this land within a few days, and rallcn ! upon it unexpectedly and suddenly. We never | kiiow how much we love and honor our great ones until we see them lying in their coffins: wc never know how :o measure greatness untlll it has bidden us "good-ly" and gone rorever irom our midst. While it Is here we And rault; when It departs we gratefoll.v remember that it was with us and that It pleased us. The young men of this country can learn a very important lesson from the life or that great man, that good man, whose light has gone put and who has left us for another, and w$ trust a better world. The flags all over the Continent ai hair-mast, the tribute or a grateful people to ac knowledged worth, the bells all over the land tolling out their dirge, are signs ol the sorrow or many thousand homes througHon* jand. Three weeks ago we uttered harsh criticisms, but death stops our tongues: three weeks ago we were In the midst or S partisan conflict, our prejudices excited, our passions rousci'; we were ready to attribute to anybodv, to everybody on the other side all possible bad motives, and ready to forgive any weakness ir it was on the side where we stood; but to-day our gladiator has won the victory, and we hope c;od will crown that victory with ten thou sand blessings, and that a whole nation may be as gratetul for the victories of peace as it is slready grateful for the victories or war. The other lies on his bier?his race is run, his battle is over?de feated doubly-doubly defeated, I say, by the victor in yonder distance, and by that other victor who never lowers his lance to us. Let us loos at that life lor a moment. Ilad he been born on the mountain top and kept the even tenor or his wav along the royal ridge he might have lived and died almost unnoticed, but our hearts are tiound to him with peculiar affection, because he began flrty I years ago where jou and I are working now?away i down in the depths or the valley, with nothing ; but a large ambition and a good dream | in our hearts; our eves fixed upon that lorty pinnacle which we hope to reach at some ! time In the ruture. You look at blm and say he was lormcd by circumstances. No. You are wiong. Circumstances were against him; but he fought them and conquered. He had no better chance fllty years ago than nine out of ten in this congregation. Not half the obstacles which stood in his way stand In your way to-day. How did he win T By right down honest work, by physical temperance, by self-control, by self-poise and by self-direction; by having an aim In life, a high and lolty purpose, and by determining never to ylcla until lie had won the fight; and before he died he was, I think, if not the strongest, at least one or the strongest Influences in the land. Agree or dis agree with the conclusions or his mind, that lact remains uncontradicted. He exerted an influence that was felt in evcrv hamlet tills side or the Rocky Mountains. Men loved him who had never seen him. and the influence, the Illustrious influence or that mind flashed its presence over the whole Continent, senates were influenced and dlrccicd by him. HE SAT n?ON NO THRONE; only upon the common chair of the editor or n daily journal, and yet he was the power behind the throne, which is sometimes greater than the throne Itself. I shall never forget the Independent*, the moral courage of his curly life, ami though in later dayB we look upon his career with a suarper criti cism, yet >ou and all friends who rose and who fought against slavery in the name of the New 'ies tament and In the name of God cannot to-day criti cise as we stand i>y his bier tne man whose face was always lilted up against the chaius of tho over seer and the slave owner. Thank Ood for tnat American manhood so lull of courage that it dares stand alone and say an institution is wrong and must be given up l No one knows how much of the victory which freed the slaveB was due to him. Through a thousand Intricate raintflcatious that persistent thought went, kindling minds and kind ling hearts until men learned to love liberty ana to hate slavery. He was again loved and trusted by the whole people, only a common man htmBelf. Yon and I thought or him with reapect, even when most we diftered from his opinions. He had a warm place In the great American heart, and twenty years from now I think the placc will be warmer still, and we, for getting his eccentricities, forgetting his errors of judgment?which. nerhaps, were many?shall bom a monument to THE IT RIGHT MAM AND 1U* HONBBT SCHOLAR whose heart was always true, even when his brain waa wrong. 1 must speak just a moment of his amMttM. Id his later days a new dream seeing to have come to him. l have no doubt thai he wantedexceedingly to be President of the Halted States, and I have no doubt that he waa wlUia? to sacrifice the ease and comfort of his life In oroer to attaia the position, but I believe also that he wanted that high office not so muoh for any per sonal honor or emolument that might accrue - therefrom, bnt with the hope that, standing la a high place, he Might heal the bleeding wonnds of his native land. Vou and 1 saw the necessity for that, so rou and 1 felt that the time had come when we shoaM lorget the old wrongs and start afresh in oar grander career. The war, with all its blood, has gone, and we, wno wore the uniform, were ready to forgive if only we could secure the guarantee of a free future, and that was his wish, bis only wish, 1 think; bnt wan, be it said with sorrow, entangled and enmeshed beyond any pos sibility or liberation. The judgment of the Amerlcau people waa right at the laat, and though they loved and honored and respected the man, they would not iavor him as a leader. That is the whole story, and yet there is no young man hero who cannot learn an exceedingly Important losaon from that life. You, my brethren, hare been called to do your work. No one knows what may lay before you. You shall achieve your ambition if you labor long aud hard; but If you would achieve the high est success?such snecess that when weighed lu the balance you shall not be found wanting?you must live every day by those eflbrts and by those principles which the Lord Jcww Christ lifts revealed. Th? Death at' Mr. Greeley?His Mfc-A Lover Burled In the Coral Bed o* the Deep Ocean and a father and Mother Alao Clone Betforo?Affecting Sermon? The Congregation <rf the Filth Avenue Bnptftct Church in Tear;?Discourse by the Rev. Dr. Arinitsago. The sermon preached at the Filth Avenue Pres byterian church by the Rev. Dr. Armitagc yestcr day morning was one which will long be remem bered by those who heard it. The discourse wus based upon the loss by death of Mr. Horace Gree ley, and at its conclusion there was scarcely one among the congregation whg }$<! pot been affected j to tears. An extempore prayer, however, which the preacher delivered prefhratory to his sermon, waa perhaps the moat touching and affecting of all During its delivery be said they were there tnat morning mingilng tears with their grati tude and offering with their thanksgiving many of those deep feelings for the bereft which nothing but the great omnirotencc of God could creute in the bosoms of mortals. He had taken in His wisdom one much rcspected from among us. Our great publicist slept in the image of death; the man whom we had loved for years, whose name, influence and power had been a life among ns, was stretched out in the image of death. Why He only knew; but out of the affliction He would caune rich and noble efforts of righteousness to grow, and they would sec hereafter what they then knew not of this Divine medium. Those of them who bad progressed into middle life felt that the afflic tion was personal. Some of those in this city began their career as public men or private clU aena, as men following certain PR0FE38I0K8 OF lKTKLLKCT, or might follow equally honorable positions of manual toll and commercial business, ami they had measured their terms of activity alongside of their fellow citizen who had departed tliis life, and God's visitation upon him had struck home to all their hearts, some of them remembered when he came to this great metropolis poverty-stricken, unsur rounded by friends, lonely as a stranger, yet trust ing as a child. They remembered the struggles of early lite, the obscurity, the toll to educate the great mind that seemed to shape its own course and destiny, and they remembered with thanksgiv ing all the peculiar circumstances that gathered about Ills life and made htm what he was. They thanked Cod for Ills poverty aud his struggle*, for the bent of his noble nature, for the power of his Intellectual mind, for the endurance of his seusi- j billtles and for the purity of Ms life. They | thanked Him lor the correcting lessons that he gave them In the great structure of their usetul government, in the jurisprudence of the people and for the sweet and noble communion which he held with nature, and man's higher and uo'der sphere through which we drank kindred views and feel- j lugs, and lie would hallow aud sanctify his lite i that his truth should follow his name in genera- . tlons to come, as being dead he would bo unable to speak. They stood that day silently before Hod. for they found that the great, the venerable and the wise were mortal like themselves. He had per- i mlttcd to come upon Mr. Greeley, while he was old, I ascites of crushing calamities; and. within the \ period or one moon, a lovely family circle that was unbroken, save as a link that had been taken years i ago, and to a bosom that waa unwounded save by | the scar or old strokes which had been left there, He had broken the family arch, broken down the > altar of the house, and visited it with great ! anil apparent severity?an affliction by which father and mother slept together that dav and a lover lay at the bottom of the ocean sleeping In the ! coral beds, an affliction by which the trlultv or the i link that bound and united them had been lnoken, i and tne principals been taken away In a moment, i They prayed that the sweet lessoup?purity, j nobility and honor of his life, and or Ids parent age?might abide with his daughters as legacies that should be a treasure to encourage them, and, above all. that the cross of our U>rd Jesus thrift might dwell In their hearts, that the hope of a i glorious resurrection should arrive when tne be trothed one, and the lather and mother should . conic forth, when the sea should give up her dead and the cartu no longer conceal her slam. Then , might these two ratherless and motherless girls be reunited with the departed majority ol that house who had gone so soon before them. They blessed God lor the manner of his death, as well as for tho means of his life. Ills death had , been slow and comparatively painless, with an ob liviousness or many or the distressing phenomena about it. They thanked Hlui that lie had spared him the wringing or the heart by the rending or the last tics, and that He had taken him In insensl- | blllty or all the transactions of earth to Himself, and yet they thanked Illm that, He did give that great heart and mind lurid moments In passing away, and that he uttered the noblest truth that was ever told to the universe?t4I know tliul iny He deemer llveth." IJlenscd be God's nauie that the ? nubllclst, the Journalist, the statesman, the emperor i could trust In this precious declaration, and they praved Him to permit the Iobs of t^r Grceleyg, I their Rewards and tneir Lincolns, the noble men of all their spheres?make them a bettor ptopie. The preacher then selected as the text 91 l|i? iKf- | mon the eighth verse of the tliirty-flccouu psalui, 1 viz."f will lustruct thee and will teach thee in the way which thou shouldst go." He said they j must pardon his weakness on the occasion; he tolt almost inadequate to conduct the service. 1 When he learned of the death of this great states man his heart bounded back to a pcriou of more : than thirty years, when he met him a 'ittle vounger J than himself, but both young men. In this city, j and It seemed to him to be an admonition to be . ready also: for the thought brought back tho mem- . ery of those times with very great vividness. He , (the speaker) came to this city a yonng boy, empty- j handed as Hoisce Greeley, and at about the same . period as he came, ills lirst knowledge ol him ; was as EPITOR OF THE NEW YORKER, , and some other periodicals followed that, and last 01 all a little evening paper called the Tuttur. He presumed there were few persons in New A one who remembered it. In a conversation with Mr. Greeley a lew months ago he said to htm, "1 have read your paper from its first number, and even | before It was Issued, for months." He asked, with a pieaaunt smile, what I meant, and I said, I drew out of that penny paper of yours, tlic TittiU-r, a wonderlul little sheet, lor its condensa tion, its power and Its influence." With some de gree of surprise he said, "lleally. 111 m surprised that you recollect It. i have not heard the name of the paper mentioned for years and had-entirely forgotten it." True enough. It was the father or the Tribune. Stern and James Gordon liennett had also departed from the old vete rans of the press. They left, no one except Mr. Uryant and Mr. Hrooks, who were the only surviving editors of the dally papers which were In existence when he came to New >?r" Raymond and others followed them, aud they were gone also. When he looked back on those thirty years he naturally felt that the words of the text should create in his mind the inquiry, should he next be led to the close 01 the same journey. The text said,'? I will instruct thee, and I will teacn thee In the way which thou sfiouldst go." Men sometimes said that It was a solemn thing to die, and so It was, but he believed that a little re flection would show that it waa a still more solemn thing to live. It was only TIIR THOUGHTLESS ANI) THE INCONPIbERATE that rushed through lite carlessly; men of more caution remembered that every tread of the foot was one tread nearer death. He earnestly en treated all young men to take an example of the manner In which Mr. Greeley died and to put their trust Id God. He doubted whether Horace Gree ley could ever become what he was but lor his ad versities; it was the lessons he had learned through his struggling life that made liitn consid erate to the poor and the down-trodden, and these ever were dyiug of starvation. What made him so earnest in his desire to see the young men of his country become noble, patriotic and prosperous but the trials which he had had to encounter in his youth and early manhood? He, indeed, naif rea son to dread prosperity more than adversity. Prosperity was the ruin or some men, and be had seen wonderful changes come over men when they became prosperous; prosperity beat down upon them. Horace Greeley wore laurels that day, but they were not granted to him as a young man; he wore them as a man of sixty, after the trials, alter the battle, and after the conquest.; and so did their President; be was crowned with tibnor, marked with respect, endowed with responsibility. And whsre, he asked, did his honor spring from r It did not come to Mm walking up and down th? street lu ribbons ana Klumes; it came to him when his ankles were idilen in blood, among the shouts of the con quered and the groans of the dying. These were TUB HBALt yp |JM BTJUiaUMMf. Honors could only be won by action^ such as those of men like Kranklln, Greelev or James Gordon Benuott, no matter whether their business was simply putting up types, in the harvest, or by wort at the anvil. He could never forget the scene when he Went to Mrs. Greeley's iunerul, to see the venerable old man, bent beneath Me weight of years scarcely able to hold his head from his breast; vet every now and then th? iorti tude and strength that betokened wondertal reso lution with him caused him to raise Ms head, weeping, and he wiped bis hands across bis checks to dash away the tears. Little did he then know that in a month?one short month later?-and poor Horace Greeley would sliMber at her side. But had he not been bereft of' his senses how happy might lie have died whan he looked upon thai daughter?that Attentive nurse?kneeling by his bedside, caring for his requirements, and displaying withal that strength and resolution that God had given her to enable her to pray for him, knowiug so well how near he was to his end?how near, lu dejd, lie was to being lost to her ft>r Hie. Mr. Beccher on th? Death of Mr. Or?el?y. Mr. lJceclicr at the conclusion of the sermon prcacheil last night, a nummary of which appears iu another column, Minn referred to M*. Greeley's death. In applying the truths of his discourse Mr. Becchcr said"It is time, brethren, that we should tnlnk of these things. A pall of death hangs over the community. The heurt of one wlio was the light of our dwelling Is now unconscious. A man I whom l greatly loved; a man who was greatly charged with great power; a man who had a very commendable ambition, even if it were not the most wise one; a man of enormous energy; a man who did not undertake anything cxccpt that which in his judgment was to benefit the generation in which he lived; a man who has gone successfully through a rough and stormy liie and lived to a good old age. He would have clasped a worldly honor which was uot attainable by htm; he clutched at it and fell below It, and died of a broken heart?a man who lived iu stormy times, and whose heart and soul were always on the side ol the best things. With well intent he sought a more eminent honor and missed it. B.v and by, when the excitement of the time has panned away, men's Judgments will be clciiror, ami we shall bim' everything that was unwise in that eadeavor in a duVerenl dii(Y cfcSTfr light.

Mr. Talmagc's sermon last evening was on the death of Horace Greeley, and its lessons to literary men and others. The Tabernacle was crowded to Its utmost capacity. Mr. Greeley was a warm friend of the pastor of the Tabernacle, and took a deep luterest In the lay college connected with the church, belore which he lectured last Winter. The preacher last evening spoke for nearly an hour. An abstract or the discourse will be found below. The text selected was Zecharlah xl. 2:? "Howl, fir tree, for the cedar has fallen." Horace Greeley is dead! The caricaturist diops his pencil, the author his pen, the merchant his yard stick, the laborer his plekaxe, the student his book, the lawyer his brief, the nation its sorrow, the world Its culogium. There ought to be, in the life of tills man, a lesson of hope for the struggling. But young men sometimes think they have no chance, no money, no elaborate education. You have as much chance as this boy had. Look at the lad In Vermont, In homespun clothes, dyed with butternut bark, helping his father get a scaut living out of a poor piece of ground. One who, with bare leet and tow shirt, helped Ills father to raise a living lor mother and sisters has a right to publish fifty boons concerning "What He Knows About Farming." See TUB WHITE-HEADED LAD antting off the Albany towboat at the New lorK flattery, moneyless uud friendless, and sitting on the steps of a printing oillcc waiting for the "boss" to come. Then look at him occupying the lore most editorial chair of the world! Have you no chance? He who lias got a good, industrious mother, graduates from a university higher than Berlin or Kdlnburgh, with a diploma in each hand. God starts us wltn at least $100,000 of capital. Your right arm is worth $6,000, surely; your left as much; your reason is worth $20,000, certainly, and vou would not want to sell your sjuI for iflii.ooo. That makes lor every man that starts In lite a capital of $100,000. Many are waiting for Institutions to mak=i them, and for friends to make them. Fool! why dou t you make yourself? Columbus was a weaver, ./Ksop was a slave, Hogarth a carver ofpewtcr uots, Horace Greeley entered New ^ork with ten $10 76 In his pocket. You say it was genius and eccentricity. No, it was work. Many a man has tried to co;y Horace Greeley, but pot nothing but his poor handwriting and his slouched hat. It was work that made the man. This providence ought to be A WARNING TO OVKK-WOKKKD L1T?RAKY MBN. Mr. Greeley told me ten days belore Ills nomina tion at Cincinnati that he nad not had a sound sleep In fliteen years! Brethren of literary toll, we ba<l better slow up?put do^rp brakes. You who ire going Wit!: tti<Ttss truln, at sixty miles an hour, had better take the accommodation at thirty five miles au hour. It Is this night work that is killing our literary men. The brass heads of the coffin Ud are made out of gaslight. First the devil tries to stop the useful thinker by lazy; but, falling in thai, he stands iu the editor room, or the artist's studio, or the minister s study, saying:?"Do four times the work you are doing: wrife two books this ySdr; go out and deliver fifty lectures at $200 a night." Men of In tellectual toll, you are careful 01 tne candle to keep It burning brlghtlv: you had better begin to look after the candlestick. We find In this solemn providence the doctrine 01 brotherhood. All parties leel It. We arc ftt the close of the meanest chapter of personal vitupera tion. The moment this death was annouueed It hushed everything. When the nation next week follow Horace Greeley to Greenwood you will not be able to tell who were republicans and who lib eral republicans. All the States will vote lor liliu as a man worthy of honor, and by TnE ELECTORAL COLLEGE OK TIIE WORLD he will be proclaimed President of the great re formatory movements of the last twenty years. How quickly the nation has grounded arms! The trumps that sounded the victory or his political opponent will deepen Into the grand march ioi 11 Webcam from this providence that newspaper men. like other people, will have to meet God. it is a vast responsibility to set type or sit in an edi torial chair; the audience is so vast, tne result so Infinite. If any man ought to be a high-toned Christian it Is the editor. Now, the editor In his columns says "we" aud "us," but In the last day It will be "I" and "you." I congratulate you, men of the printing press, on the splendor of your op portunity, ond I charge vou, be careful how you u?e it. Alas! Tor those who prostitute an opportu nity In blackmailing and eularging their subscrip tion list by pandering to the appetite or BAD MEN AND WORSE WOMEN poisoning the air with a plague that killed a nation. Mr. Talmagc referred to Mr. Greeley as the champion of temperance principles. He was tne ft>c of all Intoxicating drinks, from the rve whiskey that throws the sot into the ditch to tlic wine cup that makes a fool of the fine lady In the parlor. Ho saw the ruin intemperance had wrought among men In bin own profession M<1 heard the Knapping heart strings of widows and orphans robbed by the (tend that squats in the rum bottle and sweats in the brewery, the smoke of its torment ascending forever and forever. I think all the decauteis In the grogshop rattled fester day with gladness when it was told that Ioracc Greeley was dead. This sad cireuinstauce teaches us that the last moments of life are a poor time In which to pre pare lor eternity. What THAI' MAN'S HKLK110US IIOPKft were I am not informed, bnt the last days of his sickness were passed under mental aberration. 1 don't suppose there were teu meu in the United States 01 abetter physical constitution than Horace Greeley, but death Is an old besieger and boasts himself of the strength of thejatephe cftrles. Mr. Talmage in coaciadlHf said:?llush now, all m people I Let the nation uncover tts brow and carry forth its illustrious dead. Along the streets where he once trudged a weary boy, and afterwards a weary maa, let hte? be carried. Hang out signal* black and white?black for the woe and white for the resurreatlon.

Bloqwsat Trihat* ?? Hsnut OneMy hf ttee R?t. O. I. Prethtagha*. December's opening Sabbath, bright with sun shine, though bitterly oeld, was greeted by an un usually large attaadaace at the services yesterday morning at Lorrie Hall. Rev. O. B. Frothlngham preached. Ills sutyeet was "The Lore of Qod," and Ms basis the words of 8t. Paul, "Not that God Is loving, but that God Is love." To say that God is lore and love Is God was, he began, the same thing. The great feature of the divine law, as manifested by the early Christians, was God sending His Hon into this world to snatch meu from eternal damnation. Following out this Idea of the amount of saving Influence required to rescue one frotn the influence of the devil, Theo dore Parker, instead of a Trinity, made out a qua terulty?the fourth one being TIIB DKVIL. Having dwelt upon what would be the effect t<f hanlsh the devil from the world he proceeded to say tlia*. it was dlfllcult to define what the love of God is. Unltarlanism of every degree stood upon this basis. Think of this all unbosoming atmos phere giving vitality to the smallest Insect alike with the greatest saint, and bearing on Us broad bosom-all living things. Think of the stars, Forever tlnalng an they Rhine, "The liana tha' made us la divine." Look upon the insect world tuil of wondrous life; dive into the depths of old ocean, where small fishes disport amid the majestically moving whales; walk lorth into the grand primeval forest; look upon the snail In his tiny cover; look upon the polar bear; look upon even the great centre of magnificent forces; go far beyond the stars visible to us into new regions where new stars have been flung into space; look everywhere, anywhere and the universal cnorus comes forth, "Uod is love.'' Alter nil, the EVII. OF THK WORLD Is iusigniflcant when compared with the amount ol good there is. If men would but simply conform to the laws of virtue and truth things would bo greatly different. The great shadow then would be removed from Provi dence. Why will men be so blind aud stupid as to act contrary to what they know to be for their best good ? Ah! there iB THK URKAT PROBLEM of this our wondrous lile. Nothing satisfies man. The Insect drinks in the morning dew and basks in the day's sunshine and dies content at eve. Man is insatiate?never content. Picturing at eloquent length the fl ults or this insatiateness and discontent or man he showed how different the world would be ir men were less ambitious, less restless and more contcut. From tnls he went back to I'ntta- I rlanlsm, which ho summed up by saying that tho Unitarian was an optlmiBt. Hlshop lierkele.v do clared that the only substantial thing was talk. Quaint old Dr. Johnson answered the argument to j Hoswell by saying. "Try him with a stick." Was it ! right that there should be so much crime?

Darwin tells us or the law or selection, by which, in TUB STQUUULK F0H LtFK, the strongest survive All things do not work to gether far good. They only who only love God sur vive. This is the law of selection. No matter what the voluptuary or the worldling, or the cold, scien tific man says; hear what the honest and Just mun says? what he sa>s who strives to do his duty to the best of his ability. Poverty may clothe him in rags, may put out his flie; business may be blight ed, calumny may rouse suspicions against him? this man never repines. The Puritans did not re- j pine at Providence; they found love in God. So do j all truly brave meu. In this connection he re- , ferred to HORACE ORERLF.Y. Ills death had caused a general chill, or his career as a public man he would not speak. He would neither allude to Ills private character. This must be left with the Searcher o! Hearts. It wasonly of the drill, of lile they had a right to judge, speaking for liimseli aloue, speaking Irom a life-long conviction, the life of Horace Greeley illustrated the enthusiasm of humanity. He was a born cicmoorat, a republican In the grain, a man thoroughly human. He had been poor*, he knew what it was to be cold and thinly clad, and to l?c neglected and nobody in society. He had grown rich and powerful and an associate of the wisest and best of the nation. His broad humanltarianlsin early showed itself lu his bitter opposition to slavery. He pleaded !or peace; he pleaded for popular education: he ursert the absolute divorce between religion and the State. He said frankly that this was not a Clu Is tiau Stat;; that here meet on equality ail creeds. He contended zealously for the rights or all men and also of all women. All his so-called allu sions aud scnutnnntalismscanie H orn his humanity. In religion he was a Unlv<'vsallst. lie became a Unlvorsabst from conviction. He believed that God was love. lie died 111 this firm belief. A great teacher, an earnest reformer, a stimulator of honest thought had passed away, lie owed Ills death to fidelity to the same principles that .made his life illustrious. The tolls or being staudard bearer for his party were too much for him. The storm of abuse and calumny bursting upon him was too much. And then there came the defeat?the first crushing blow, which, with strength exhausted by his night vigils at the bedside or his wire, was more thau he could stand. ?: A Spiritualistic View of Greeley's Death. The services or the Progressive Spiritualists at | Apollo Hall were well attended yesterday, despite i the sharp air and the slippery condition of the sidewalks. During the evening exercises the lec turer, Mr. Thomas Cales Forstcr, briefly alluded to | the death or Mr. Greeley. The subject of the dis course was "A Response to the Charge Recently Made that Spiritualism is Heathenism Revived.1' j The lecturer desired his hearers to know that the heathen mind of ancient days entortalned the idea of God, in whose infinite power they believed quite as fully and evidently as sincerely as the pro teased believers of the present time. It was mere arrogancc lor th se now living to claim that Christianity alone entertained the true beller in the divine power. The lecturer cited numerous passages from the writings of ( Illustrious pagan authors in support or his pre mises, and said that the aristocratic religion of the present day was simply JudalBm galvanized. He | claimed that (Hindoo literature bciug his authority) | Abraham was a Urahmin, and, moreover, that he . was an avowed Spiritualist, a believer aud a ! medium, 'ihe heathen of old clearly understood j the relations existing between man and the angel world. Mr. Forstcr spoke at some length to show that many of the learned pagans were Spiritual- j 1st* and that heathenism In Its higher sense, as judged from their works, was something of which no man need lie ashamed. All the better testl- | monies of the religious world showed that TUB HI-IRITCALI8TIC IDF.A was eternal and natural. In th? present age much nud been done to advance Its growth; but It would doubtless require another age to pass away before the whole universe should accept spiritualism as i the one true religion. The lecturer urged all to seek the true and pure spiritual light: so that when their spirits should take the flight to a brighter and higher life they might say with that great and noble spirit which had just entered the spirit-world, "1 know that my Redeemer llveth." The speaker said that spiritualism taught thai every mau must be his own redeemer, and then tho spirit world would be to him all brightness aud all beauty forever. In the morning Mr. Forster's theme was ??Thanksgiving Day." In the course or the lecture the speaker gave a history of public thanksgiving. He said the noblest act done on our last Thanks giving Day was periormed in this city?a ctt* so notorious for crime. The act was providing food to io.ooo destitute human beings, and it made no difference whether thosi who participated in the charity were saints or sinners; the act was a noble one and all concerned in Its performance would have their reward in the blessings and RJ"*t'tude or the recipients of the charity. The lecturer said It was a commentary on the religious Institutions ol the country that the President felt obliged once a year to toll the people that they should be grateful. Kvery day, Bald the speaker, should be a day of gratitude. Tho Spiritualists had especial cause to be grateful. They knew that although there might lie vacant chairs at their family altars on th* recurrence of Thanksgiving Day, the family circle had not, neverthelesH, be?D broken. They know that their departed are NOT JN ANY lilt KB/* WOOD-? not nnner the sod?and tliey also know that Ood never separated two heart.* that attraction or affinity had united. The Spiritualist knew that thlii lire wan only the llrst link in an interminable chain ol life. Mr. Forster said, In conctnsion, that although spiritualism w?h growing, it was often obliged to drag Its way along. lie "urged hla hear ers to push on thi work. Sp ritualism was either everything or nothing. If everything, an he be lieved. every possible effort to advance It should be made liy Its (Uncipies, if it was nothing, It WM the most superb fruud known to all history. "CBUMBS CF COMFOET." Mr. Greeley's Private Secretary Dcaitl the Story Relative to Mr. Held. A reporter ol the Hebald called ou Mr. Whltelaif Eeld, editor of the Tribune, to ascertain his con struction of the story published In a morning paper, which stated that Mr. Reld had written a certain article In the Trltrune to which Mr. Oreeley had written two disclaimers which Mr. Beid had pur* posely left otit of the paper, and that this blow killed Mr. Greeley. Mr. Held said that he would take no notice of the article and would make no statement as to Its as sertions. Mr. O'Dwyer, Mr. areeley's private secretary, who knew all the circumstances of the affair, was atterwardM seen. He made the ap pended statement. It snows that, while there was a basis of truth in the article spoken of, the facts hod been perverted in such a manner as to be totally false. MR. O'OWYKR'H STATEMENT. When Mr. Greeley saw the article. "Crnmbs of Comfort," be wrote u brief paragraph explaining that the editor '(meaning himself) did not write It and disclaiming Its general tenor. This he had "set1' in minion, showing that be did not attach much importance to the whole matter, and when the proof of it was brought to him he drew two strokes across It and wrote another paragraph, in which he treated the matter with still less concern than before. Calling his secretary he told him to liave the fl"Ht set aside and the second paragraph "set up" Instead. His secretary simply enclosed both, without any remark, to Mr. Held, as he was accustomed to do with every article which Mr. Oreeley sent lor hla (Mr. Keid's) consideration or to have amended according as later news might warrant. When Mr. Held received at night the two paragraphs he wrote to Mr. Greeley saying that the matter which ho (Mr. Greeley) had sent lor his consideration ho would hold over until the morrow: that tho papers approved of the article, but still be would act as he might desire. Next day Mr. Greeley expressed no wisn to have any reference made lu tho TrVmne to tue article and expressed his satisfaction with what Mr. Hold had done. It Is said be came no mote to the offlce alter he wrote the paragraph in question. This is grossly incor rect. He wrf c there on Friday?the day after?the article "Our woollen Industry'' Inserted Saturday, the Sth, and came tlier.s again Monday, the day after the Doston lire, and wrote two articles, which were lU?erted. 'the brotherly Intimacy and warm affec tion which always existed between him and Mr. Kied were not interrupted for a moment. He always gave Mr. Hied the widest discretion in regard to modi fying Ills articles or leaving them out altogether, and II an article was necisHarlly held over for even a week he never lelt troubled about It. His last act wus a glance of recognition toward him and an effort to extend to him his almost pulseless hand. Mr. Sinclair was perfectly familiar with the facts at th'j time and coincided in Mr. Reid's action, so did Mr. Cleveland, Mr. Greeley's brother in-law. [From the Star of To-day.] TUe Fight Over the Body. The death of Mr. Creeley seems to have lifted the lid from the journalistic caldron, and out jump the long-cooked enmities, prejudices and malice, which for mouths or years have seethed in un natural restraint. The feeling entertained by the Sun corps to Mr. Whltelaw Reid, late editor and present managing editor of the Tribune, is similar to that felt by a free-b!oodod Apache for a neatly painted Sioux, circumstances placed Mr. Keid in the chair more ably filled by Mr. Dana, and thero he was forced to exercise a somewhat arbitrary policy in dealing with soma lf the gentle men now associated with th')V Sun. Why or wherefore the hate we know mV but there it is bitter, relentless, cruel and savage,Vith a purpose well defined and a plan not ta be deviated from. Hardly had Mr. Greeley dropped Uls head upon his pillow when the Bluiubering fire broke forth, and the fiercest flaming* of the .vim sought to con sume and ruiu Mr. Keul. It will be remembered that the Tribune published some weeks since a manly card Iroru Mr. Greeley, in wldcli he an* ' nounced his resumption of the editorial control. On the same dav Mere appeared a jocose, rollick* inn article entitled, "Crumbs of Com tort," which put In comical phrase the laughable side of a delcated candidate's relief troin the bore dom of politlcul applications lor position. Perhaps the severest standard or good taste would have adjudged the uitlcle broad and undig nified, but no one could read it and fall to catch tlie point, laugh with the writer and be prepared thcncelortlt lor the good-naluivd give-and-take, for which the Trlbun< lias long lieen noted. According to the nun nils article created great indignation in democratic and republican circles, aud gave Mr. Creeley a tlioak Irorn which he never recovered. lie desired to disclaim its authorship, and wrote two short ;u tides to that effect, which Mr. Reid suppressed, thus adding to the detection and melancholy already in the mastery of his mind. . lu other words', it would appear irom the report tliat Mr. Greeley begged the poor boon of explain i lng that lie wus not the author or the "offensive 1 article," and that Mr. Reid cruelly and ungenerously : reluscd him even that consolation. i It seems to u.- there are two ways of looking at this, uiiil in either Mr. Reid uppers entirely justi fied by the facts. 1. There is no proof that the Sitn's assertions are based on fact, so lui as Is known Mr. (Jreelcy may have written the article or he may have approved it, and no one in the Sun has shown or offered the least evidence that lie ever desired a correction. I 2. Whether lie wiote it or not lie was clearly non eompos at the time, as the unhappy tacts since obtained unfortunately prove. ir lie wrote the article and desired to take it back it would liavo been tolly In Mr. Iteid, knowing, as he did, his con dition, to permit it. II he did not write it and tie slred to have that fact known it was a matter of discretion with the editor in charge, the editor who represented Mr. Greeley suue and not Mr. Creeley prosti ate, whether to yield acquiescence ; or rerusc it. The Intimate, almost filial relations subsisting bet ween Mr. Greeley and his lieutenants are well Known. Implicit confidence and entire trust ruled their daily Intercourse, and, wise or foolish, it is very certain that (lie conduct of the puper was a matter about which unfriendly discussions were never had. It would be much more probable that the Sun shonld pretend to reveal a scandal wholly Imaginative than that Mr. Reid sliould insult, annoy or offend the icclirigs of his chief. The Worhi, too, sliows its hand and teeth in de fence of Mr. Creeley Horn the ghoulish criticism of the Times. The World has published several arti cles In re Greeley. 'I tic Hist was very babyish and in flicted a beery lamentation ou the public, for which but few of the Initiated were prepared. Yesterday it launched Into tli;* "iat-witted brutal Jeuuings" and the "thrifty Joitcs," with sharpest lance and heaviest bludgeon, aud in a second assault drew blood freely in the most approved and scientific manner. These Journalistic amenities over the dead body of an associate are ruiher unsightly, and the singular:) brutish demonstrations or the Times liavo excited the disgust of every reader, professional or lay. The generous tone of the llEKAM) is in rich, marked aud Honorable contrast to the vulgar tirade of the l'ost aud the orutal in decencies of the Time* that none can lull to notice it. Mr. (Jreelcy was a fighter In tils time, but he never sought a triumph at the expense ot his better natare, and would have scorned an udvautage gained in discussions with the dead. It is a nasty quarrel as it stands, and before the Winter is over will lead to something besides jed Ink. ACTION OP THE ABCADIAN CLUB.

THE FEELING IH NEWARK. The absorbing topic of discussion in Newark ever since Saturday morning has been the melancholy death of Horace Greeley. Thousands who but yesterday, as It were, impoverished their store or language In reviling aud abusing one of the fathers of American journalism arc now seemingly among the deepest mourners.
