Brooklyn, March 3. Dr. Talmage preached in the Brooklyn Tabernacle this morning on the subject, "Shall America be Eeserved for Americans?" As his sermons are now translated in every language of Europe and many languages of Asia, in his audiences may be seen persons from many different nations. After an exposition of the scripture be gave out the hymn: Arm of the Lord, awake! awake! Put on thy strength, the nations shake! Text, Acts xvii, 2G: "And hath made of one blood all nations." That is. if for some reason general phlebotomy were ordered, and stand ing In a row were an American, an Englishman, a Scotchman and an Irishman, a Frenchman, a German, a Norwegian, and Icelander, a Span iard, an Italian, a Russian and representatives of all other nationalities bared their right arm and a lancet were stack into it, tho Wood let out would have the same characteristics,! or It would be red, complex, fibnne, globnline, chlorine and containing sulphuric acid, potassium, phosnhate of magnesia and so on, and Harvey and Sir Astley Cooper and Richardson and Zimmerman and Brown-Sequard and all the scientific doctors, allopathic homeopathic, hy dropathic and eclectic, would acree with Paul as, standing on Mars Hill, his pulpit a ridge of limestone rock 50 feet high and among the proudest and most exclusive and undemocratic people of the earth, he crashed Into all their prejudices by declaring In the words of my text that God had made "ol one blood ill na tions." The countenance of the Ave races of the hu man family may be different as a result of climate or "education or habits, and the Malay will have the projecting upper jaw. and the Caucasian the oval face and small mouth, and too Ethiopian the retreating forehead and large lip, and the Mongolian the flat face of olive hue, and the American Indian the copper colored complexion, but the blood Is the same and Indicates that they all had one origin and that Adam and Eva were their ancestor and ancestress. why America was built. I think God built this American continent and organized this United States republic to demonstrate the stupendous idea of the text. A man in Persia ill alwa) s remain a Persian, a man In Switzerland will always remain a Snlss,a man in Austria will always remain an Austrian, bnt all foreign nationalities coming to America were intended to be Americans. This land is the chemical laboratory where for eign bloods are to be Inextricably mixed up and race prejudices and race antipathies arc to iterish, and this sermon is an ax by which I lopeto help kill them. It is not hard for me to preach such a sermon, because, although my ancestors came to this country about 250 years aco, some of them came from Wales and some from Scotland and some from Holland and some from other lands and I am a mixture of so many nationalities that I feel at home with people from under every sky and have a right to call them blood relations. There are madcaps and patriotic lnnatics in this country w ho are ever and anon crying out, "America for Americans." Down with the Germans! Down with the Irish! Down with the Jews! Down with the Chinese! are in come directions the popular cries, all of which vociferations I would drown out by the full organ of my text, while I null out the stops and nut my foot on the pedal that will open the loudest pipes, and run my fingers over all the f onr banks ot ivory keys, playing the chant, "God hath made of one blood all nations." There are not five men in this audience, nor five men in any audience to-day in America ex cept it be on an Indian reservation, who were not descended from foreigners if you go far enough back. The only nativo Americans arc the Modocs, the Shannecs, the Chippewas, the Chcrokces, the Chickasaws, the Seminolcsand snch like.. If the principle America only for Americans be carried out, then you and 1 bavo no right to be here and we had better charter all the steamers and clippers and men-of-war and yachts and sloops and get out of this county as quick as possible. The Pilgrim Fathers were all immigrants, the Huguenots all immigrants. The cradle of most every one of our families was rocked on the bank ot the Cl de or the Rhine or the Shannon or the Seine or the Tiucr. A MISTAKEN CRY. Had the watchword "America for Ameri can;," been an early and successful cry, where cow stand onr cities wcnld have stood Indian wigwams, and canoes instead of steamers would have tracked the lludfon and the Con necticut: and, instead ot the Mississippi being the main artery of the continent, it wonldhave been only a trough for deer and antelope and wild pigeons to drink out of. What makes the cry of "America for Americans" the more ab surd and the more inhuman is that some in this country who themselves arrived herein their boyhood or arrived here only one or two gen erations DacK are joining in tne cry. scaped from foreign despotisms themselves they say, "Shut the door of escape for others." Getting themselves on our shores in a life-boat from the shipwreck saying. Haul tlio boat on the beach ana let the rest of the passengers go to tho bottom! Men who have yet on them a Scotch or German or English or Irish brogue crying out, America for Americans! What if the native inhabitants of heaven, I mean the angels, the cherubim, the seraphim born there, should stand in the gate and when tbcysee us coming up at the last should say: "Go back! Heaven for lira Heavenians!" Of course we do well not to allow foreign nations to make this country a convict colony. "We would have a wall built as high as heaven and as deep as hell against foreign thieves, pickpockets and Anarchists. We would not let them wipe their feet on the map of the out side door of Castle Garden. If England -or Russia or Germany or France send here their desperadoes to get clear of them, we would have these desperadoes sent back in chains to the places where they came from. We will not hive America become the dumping place for foreign vagabondism. But you build up a wall at the Narrows before New York harbor, or at tho Golden Gate before San Francisco, and forbid the coming of the in dnstriout and hard working and honest popula tions of other lands who want to breathe the air of our free institutions and get opportunity for better livelihood, and it is only & question of time when God will tumble that wall flat on our own beads with the red hot thunderbolts of His omnipotent indignation. You are a father and you have five children. The parlor Is the best room in your house. A PARALLEL CASE. Your son Philip says to the other four child ren, "Now, John, you live in the small room in the end of the ball and stay there; George, you live in the garret and stay there: Mary, you live in the cellar anil stay there; Fannie, you live in the kitchen and stay tticre. I, Philip, will take the parlor. It suits me exactly. I like the pictures on the walk I like the lam brequins at the windows. I like the Axmlnster on the floor. Now I, Philip, propose to occupy this parlor, and I command you to stay out. The parlor only for Philippians." You, the father, bear of this arrangement and what will you dor You will get red in the face and say: "John, come out of that small room at the end of the ball; George, come down out of the gar ret; Mary, come up from the cellar; Fannie, come out of the kitchen and go into the parlor or anywhere you choose; and Philip, for your greediness and unbrotberly behavior, 1 put you lor two hours in the dark closet under the Stairs." God is the father of the human race. He has at least five sons, a North American, a South American, a European, an Aslaticjand an Afri can. The North American sniffs the breeze and he says to his four brothers and sisters: "Let the South American stay in South Amer ica, let tbe European stay in Europe, let the Asiatic stay in Asia, let the African star in Af rica; but America is for me. I think it is the parlor of tbe whole earth. I like its carpet of grass and its upholstery of tbe front window, namely the American sunrise, and the uphol stery of tbe back window, namely, the Ameri can sunsst. Now I want you all to stay out and keep to your places." I am sure the Fa ther of the whole human race would hear of it and chastisement would come, and whether by earthquake or flood, or drought or heaven darkenine swarms of locust and grasshopper, or destroying angel of pestilence, God would rebuke our selfishness as a nation, and eay to the four winds of heaven: This world is My house, and the North American is no more My child than is tbe Sooth American and the European and the Asiatic and tho African. And I built this 'world for all the children, and tho parlor is then and ail is theirs." For, let me say, whether we will or not, the population of other lands will come here. There are harbors all tbe way from Baffin's bay to Galveston, and if you shut 0 gates there will be other, gates unguarded. And if yon forbid foreigners from coming on the steamers they Mill take sailing vessels. And if you forbid them com ing on sailing vessels tbey will come in boats. And if you will not let them come in boats they will come on rafts. WII.Ii SWIM ACROSS. And if you will not allow wharfage to the raft they will leave it outside Sandy Hook and swim for lrce America. Stop them? Y'ou might as well pass a law forbidding a swarm of summer bees from lighting on the clover top, or pass a law forbidding the tides of the At lantic to rise when the moon puts under it silver grappling hooks, or a law that the noon day sun should not irradiate the atmosphere. They have come. They are coming now. They will come. And if 1 bad a voice loud enough to be heard across tbe seas I would put it to the ctniost tension and cry. Let them come! You stingy, selfish, shriveled up, blasted souls who sit before your silver dinner plate piled up with breast of roast turkey incarnadined with cranberry, your fork full and your mouth full and cramming down the superabundance till your digestit e organs are terrorized, let the millions of xour fellow men have at least the wishing bone. But some of this cry, America for Americans, may arise from an honest fear lest this land be overcrowded. Such persons had better take the Northern Pacific or Union Pacific or Southern Pacific or Atlantic and Charlotte air line or Texas and Santa Fe, and go a long jour ney and find out that no more than a tenth part of this continent is cultivated. If a man with 100 acres of farm land should put all his cultivation on one acre he would be cultivating a larger ratio of his farm than onr nation is now occupying of the national farm. Pour the whole human race. Europe, Asia, Africa and all the islands of the sea, into America and there would be room to spare. All tbe Rocky Mountain barrennessesandall the other Ameri can deserts aro to be fertilized, and as Salt Lake City and much of Utah once yielded not a blado of grass now by artificial irrigation have be come gardens, so a large part of this continent that now is too poor to grow even a mullein stalk or a Canada thistle, will through artificial irrigation like an Illinois prairie wave with wheat or like a Wisconsin farm rustle with corn tassels. Bciide that, after perhaps a cen tury or two more, when this continent is quite well occupied, the tides of immigration will turn the other way. Politics and Governmental affairs being cor rccted on the other side of the waters, Ireland under different regulation turned into a gar den will invite back another generation of Irishmen, and the wide wastes of Russia brought from under despotism will with her own green fields invite back another genera tion of Russians. And there will be hundreds of thousands of Americans every year settling on the other continents. And after a nnmber of centuries, what then? Well, at that tlmn some night a panther meteor wandering throngh the heavens will put its paw on our world and stop it, and putting its panther tooth into the neck of its mountain range will shake it lifeless as the rat terrier a rat. So I have no more foar of America being overcrowded than that the porpoises in the Atlantic ocean will Become so numerous as to stop snipping, A REAL BENEFIT. It is through mighty addition of foreign pop ulation to our native population that I think God is going to fill this land with a race of peo ple 9-3 per cent superior to anything the world has ever seen. Intermarriage of families and intermarriage of nations is depressing and crippling. Marriage outside of one's own na tionality and with another style of nationality is a mighty gain. What makes the Scotch Irish second to no pedigree for brain and stamina of character, so that blood goes right up to Supreme Court bench and to the front rank in jurisprudence and merchandise and art? Because nothing under heaven can be more unlike than a Scotchman and an Irish man and tbe descendants of these two con joined nationalities, unless rum flings them, go right to the tip top in everything. All nationalities coming to this land the op- Iiosites will all the while be affianced, and "ranch and German will nnite and that will stop all tho quarrel between them, and one child they will call Alsace and the other Lor raine. And hot-blooded Spaniards will unite with cool-blooded Polaudcr. and romantic Ital ian with matter-of-fact Norwegian, and 150 ears from now the race occupying this land will be in stature, in purity of complexion, in liquidity of eye, in gracefulness of poisei in dome-like brow, in taste, in intelligence and in morals so far ahead of anything now known on either side tbe seas, that this last quarter of the nineteenth century will seem to them like the dark ages. Oh, then how they willlegislate and banrain and pray and preach and govern! This is the land where by the mingling of races the race prejudice is to get its death blow. How heaven feels about it we may conclude from the fact that Christ, tho Jew, and de scended from a Jewess, nevertheless provided a religion for all races, and that Paul, though a Jew, became the chief apostle of the Gentiles, and that recently God has allowed to burst in splendor upon tbe attention of the world Hirsch, the Jew, who after giving ten million dollars to Christian churches and hos pitals, has called a committee of nations and luruisbcd them with forty million dollars for schools to elevate his race in France and Ger many and Russia to higher Intelligence and abolish, as he says, the prejudices against their race; these fifty million dollars not given in a last will and testament and at a time when a maumust leave his money anyhow, but by donation at 55 years of age and in good health, utterly eclipsing all benevolence since tho world was created. I must confess there was a time when I entertained race prejudice, but, tlianks to God, that prejudice has gone, and if I sat in church and on one side of me there was a black man and on the other side of me was an Indian and before me "was a Chinaman and behind me a Turk, I would be as happy as I am now standing in the presence of this brilliant audience, and I am as happy now as I can be and lire. RACE PREJUDICE. The sooner we get this corpse of race preju dice buried, the healthier t, ill be our American atmosphere. Let each one fetch a spade and let us dig its grave clear on down deeper and deeper till we get as far down as the center of the earth and half way to China, butno further lest it poison those living on tbe other side the earth. Then into this crave let down the ac. cursed carcass oi race prejudice and throw on it all the mean things that have ever been said and written between Jew and Gentile, between Turk and Russian, between English andFrench, between Monolian and anti-Mongolian, be tween black and white, and put up over that grave for tombstone some scorched and jagged chunk of scoria; spit out by some volcanic eruption and chisel on it for epitaph: "Here lies tbe carcass of one who cursed the world. Aged, near 6,000 j ears. Departed this life for the perdition from whence it came. No peace to its ashes!" Now, in vie w of this subj ect, I have two point blank words to utter, one suggesting what foreigners ought to do for us, and the other what we ought to do for foreigners. First, to foreigners. Lay aside all apologetic air and realize yon have as much right as any man who was not only himself born here but his father and his grandfather and great-grandfather be fore him. Are yon an Enclishman? Though during the revolutionary war your fathers treated our fathers roughly, England has more than atoned for that by giving to this country at least two denominations of Christians, the Church of England and the Methodist Church. Witness the magnificent liturgy of the one and the Wesleyan hallelujahs of the other. And who shall ever pay England for what Shakes peare and John Milton and Wordsworth and a thousand other authors have done for America? Are you a Scotchman? Thanks for John Knox's Presbyterianism: tbe balance wheel of all other denominations. And how shall Amer icans ever pay your native land for what Thomas Chalmers and Macintosh and Robert Burns and Christopher North and Robert Mc Cheyne and Candlish and Guthrie have done for Americans? Are you a Frenchman? We cannot forget your Lafayette, who in the most desperate time of our American revolution, New York surrendered find our armies flying in retreat, espoused our cause and at Brandywine and Monmouth and Yorktcwn put all America under eternal obligation. And we cannot for get tbe coming to the rescue of our fathers Rochambeau and bis French fleet with 6,000 armed men. Aro you a German? We have not forgotten tbe eleven wounds through which Baron DeEalb poured out his life blood at tbe head of the Mar land and Delaware troops in the disastrous battle at Camden, and after we bare named our streets and our cities and counties after him we have not paid a tittle of what we owe Germany for his valor and self sacrifice. FOREIGN HEBOES. And what about Martin Luther, tbe giant German who made way for religious liberty for all lands and ages? Are you Polander? How can we forget your brilliant Count Pu laski, wbose bones were laid In Savannah river after a mortal wonnd gotten while in tbe stirrups of one of the fiercest cavalry charges of the American Revolution? But with no time to particularize I say, "All hail the men and women of other lands who come here with honest purpose!" Renounce all obligation to foreign despots. Take tho oath of American allegiance. Get out your naturalization pa pers. Don't talk against our institutions, for tho fact that rou came here and stay shows that you like ours better than any other. If you don't like them there are steamers going out of our ports almost every day. and the fare Is cheap, and, lest you should be detained for parting civilities, I bid you goodbye now. But if you like it here, then I charge you, at tbe ballot box, in legislative hall, in churches and everywhere be oat and out Americans. Do not try to establish here the loose foreign Sabbaths or transcendentalism spun into a re ligion of mush and moonshine, or foreign lib ertinism or that condensation of nil thievery, sconndrclism, lust, murder and perdition which in Russia is called Nihilism aud in France called Communism and in America called Anarchism. Unite with us in making by the grace of God the 15,000,000 square miles of America on both sides the Isthmus of Panama the paradise of virtue and religion. My other word snggesti what Americans ought to do for foreigners. Bv all possible means explain to them our institutions. Com ing here, tbe vast majority of them know about as much concerning republican nr'dcmocratlc form of government as you in the United States know about politics of Denmark or France or Italy or Switzerland, namely nothing. Explain to them that liberty in this country means liberty to do right, bnt not lib erty to do WTong. Never in their presence say anything against their native land, for.no matter bow much they may have been oppressed there, in that native laud there are sacred places, cabins or man sions around whose doors they played,and per haps somewhere there is a gravo into which they would like, when life's toils are over, to be let down, for It is mother's grave, and it wonld be like going again into tbe loving arms that first held them and against the bosom that first pillowed them. My! myl how law down a man must have descended to have no regard for the place wbero bis cradle was rocked. Don't mock their brogue or their stnmbling at tempts at tbe hardest of all languages to learn, namely, tho English language. I warrant that they speak English, as well as you could talk Scandinavian. Treat them in America as you would like to be treated if for tbe sake of your honest principles or a better livelihood for yourself or your family you hail moved under the shadow of Jungfrau, or the RIgi, or the Giant's Causeway, or the Bohemia Forest, or the Francoman Jura, OOD EVERYWHERE. If they get homesick, as some of them are suggest to them that God is as near to help them here as he was near them before tbey crossed tbe Atlantic, and that the soul's final flight is less than a second whether from the beach of tho Caspian sea or the banks of Lake Erie. Evangelize their adults through tho churches and their children through the schools, and let home missions and tract so cieties and the Bible translated in all tho lan guages of these foreign people haro full swing. Rejoice as Christian patriots that instead of being an element of weakness tbe foreign people thoroughly evangelized will be onr mightiest defense against all the world. The Congress of the United States Tecently ordered built new forts all up and down our American coasts, and a new navy is about to be projected. But let me say that S300.000,ttH) expended in coast defense will not be so mighty as a vast foreign population living in America. With hundreds of thonsands of Germans in New York, Germany would as soon think of bomb shelling Berlin as attacking us. With hun dreas of thousands of Frenchmen in New York, Franco wonld as soon think of firing on Paris. With hundreds of thousands of En glishmen in New York, England would as soon think of destroying London. Tho mightiest defense against European nations is a wall of Europeans reaching all up and do wn the Amer ican continent, a wall of heads and hearts con secrated to free government. A bulwark of foreign humanity heaved up all along our shores, re-enforced by tbe Atlantic ocean, armed as it is with tempests and Caribbean whirlwinds and giant billows ready to fling mountains from their catapult, we need as a nation fear no one in the universe but God, and if found in his service wo need not fear him. As six hundred million people will yet sit down at our national table, let God preside. To Him be dedicated tbe metal of our mines, the sheaves of our harvest fields, the fruits of our orchards, the fabrics of our manufactories, tbe telescopes of our observatories, the volumes of our libraries, the songs of our cbnrches, the affections of our heart, and all our lakes be-, come baptismal fonts, and all our mountains' altars of praise, and all our valleys amphithea ters of worship, and onr country, having be come 50 nations consolidated in one, may its every ibearttbrob be a pnlsation of gratitude to Him who made "of one blood all nations," and ransomed that blood by the payment of the last drop of his own.
