The last reek has. eeea another victim perishiig in the wa ters, and adding one more to tho snreber of tho plain. O, my brethren and friends, forbid me not to speak, while year after year, I am compelled to follow these vic tims of slaughter to the grave. Forbid trio not to speak, while the Bible declares that drunkards shall not inherit the king-" dora of God ; and while God hiruielf pro nounces a woe upon him who, through an eril coYctonsnes, pntteth the bottle to ht neighbor, and waketh him t drunken ! For twenty years it has been my lot ts ti&it the wrecks of tbi9 destroying traffic. Not all die by a violent" death. Often, have I bten called to risit others upon their death bed sometimes to hear their blasphemies, and sometimes their cry of ai;guih ; but never aid I know one ray of coiufcit by such a feed of death. For twenty years I have witnessed the distress aul ihauie, and often the bitter poverty of the wives and children of the victims of this traffic. Often have I seen tbeni suffering uuchr angwish which scarcely the kindest cmfojU of the Gospel and the utmost duty of submission to the will of God had power to assauage. But nev r did I meet by such a bed-bide, or as a crnjterter in the midst of sach a faraiiv, one, who had, by the traffic in &troi? drink, aided in producing the ruin. No one who ever traffics in the poison ever at tends the body ef the drurlkard to the rave. The end of such a work of his )and., no man has the courage willingly to behold. I have seen the aged mother, and tho meek ami afilieted wife, both suffering from sicklies?, from whom the son and husband had taken the supplies which the hand of cuanty furnished, and carried them down .1 " 1 m to the ohop, and sold them for rum. j lonKm, colporteurs and tracts have se lf have Mo a daughter, snffenng and dy- j Cemplihcd great benefits, but by far the inir on a couch of straw, her bedstead standing on a few loose boards, while the rest 6 the floor anil the ceiTtng'tlaa ttm consumed for fae),f .and all else was open from the cellar to the roof. There the lay, in the cold of winter, in a dying state. Her attending physician had carried a blanket and an overcoat and 3prcad thesi on her shivering limbs: ad these, the drunkard father and mother, had taken and add for rua. I followed her to the grave ; and net long after the father and inetner ; both victims of strong driak. A few years since, a young man sent for me to visit him in the fall of the year. He was in a consumption : which." he ac knowledged, while his sobs choked his ut terance, was 'brought upon him by excess ive drinkiiig and consequent exposure. "Winter came on-, and the charities of the town consigned him to the care of a man who had been thriving and comfortable bet had undertaken to keep a grocery and sell rum, and had fallen a victim un der its power. Character, comfort and property were at this time well nigh gone ; he dragged out a few years of sorrow and poverty and then sunk into the' grave. At the house of this person, gome two miles north of this place, I visited that sick, and broken-hearted young man. In a cold, unfinished chamber, on a thin bed of straw, whose covering he had vainly tried to eko out by throwing over it his wearing apparel there, without a fire, without an attendant, I found him on tho ccidest day ofa severe winter. There for tho last time I ptinted him to the Savioar, and prayed with him ; and that night he died. Yo-i remember a man who used almost n. ;htly ;o be reeling and vo ciferating ground the Biidge, for Many years and fur whoun his meek and suffer ing wife u-od nightly to send down their little hoy ;wo miles to follow his father, lost bo should fall dovrn and perish on the v.ry li inc. I saw that man oa a bed of f-icktv- :u which intoxicating drinks had broii.. t. him; and tueu I o.-irnestiy 'but kiudiv v.irncd'him that now he must refornj or .lie ; for iu all probability ho could i:,-ve i;ve through, another such a scene. Tl -peer mm, when scarcely ro coverod nclKcier.tly to totter down to the Bridge'', came down. Those who traffic in strong drink saw his haggard looks aiad trembling baud. They knew his habits; they had known them for vars. They had known the distress of his family. They knew his condition. But he had a little mor money and they filled for him onee more the intoxicating oup. He went home and uid. After he was slaiu I at tended his funeral, but not one of them who had received the price of his blood was there. The snn would go down ere I could tell you the history of half the cases like the!e, which I have been perpetually call ed to witness here during the last twenty years. Now another victim is gone. It ii nearly twenty years since I first knew tho anguish oi' his father and mother who have gone down to their graves in sorrows His worthy and excellent wife endured his conduct till it waa neither decent nor safe to endure it any longer and then left him. Hig ehildren have drunk tho cup of sorrow from their earliest years. He has been to them a living grief; and has gone down to tho grave leaviag then without comfort as thty think of the past, and without hope as1 they think of his eternal destiny. Strong drink was the cause of all. I had the confidence of that man, and often and earnestly entreated him to reform. Ofton has h wept and promised reformation. But the cravings of a debased appetite wero too strong; he fell ; he fell lower and lower. Were those who. received his scanty earnings ignorant of his infirmity ? Did they not know that they were ministering poisoa to a poor maniac, bereft of self-control ? They knew it well. They saw him of late, day after day, overcome with dmnk enntsa. But even in 'that state, they sold him the poison, and continued to cll, till their work was done, and their vin- - tim perished. I know not who sold him the last portion ; I desire not to know. It matters little who sold him the last. But upon th hoads of all them who have known his infirmity for raonths or years, rests the tnailt of that man's blood. I cannot donbt that they must answer for it at the bar or Uod. v Sunday in Caiap. Richmond, Aug. 10, 1S62. Sunday. iu camp!

Probably at no period of the war has taa reiijious element in the armv ib!ucih iu me arizxv neen i more predominant than it is at present. i in m a n w- lHQfnnnr. ak.n mosc cognt influences tnst hare opera ted upon, and fcubdusd.'thereeklss spirit of the soldiery, are those wlittfh arc born in the heart itself, upon the field of battle. There is something irresistible in the ap peal whith tho Almighty makes when he strikes from yonr side, in tho twinkling of an e v, your friend and comrade, and 'lew natures are so utterly depraved as to en tirely disregard the whisperings of the "still small voice V which makes them selves so vividly heard at such a moment. Every, man nnconsciously asks himself, ' whose turn will come next," and when at the termination of the conflict, he finds nimseit exempted from the awful fiat that has brought death to his very side and all around him, his gratitude to his creator is alloyed, though it may be bat dimly, with a holier emotion, which for the time renders nim a wiser and better man. In this aspect the recent battles have done more to make religious converts than all the homilies and exhortations ever uttered from the pulpit. A man who has stood upon the threshold of eternity while in the din and carnage of a fight, has listen ed to eloqnence more fiery and imprcssivo than ever came from mortal lips. It is not strange therefore aa yo go through various camps, even ou a week day, that your ears are here and there sa luted with the melody of a choir of voices, rich, round and full, sung with all their seriousness and earnestness df true devo tion ; or that before the lights are out in th evenitg, manly tonei are heard in thanksgiving for the blessings of the day ; or that the Bible and Prayer Book are commot books upon the mess taW nr j that when Sunday arrives the little stand trorn wtiia ttts (Jhapiam is wont to dis course, is the centre of a cluster of inter ested and pious listeners. In many of the regiments much of tbit kiadly iniiuence is due to. the pure and el evated character of the officers. Wherev er these arc fouud, yon invariably also find a neat, well disciplined, orderly, quiet com mand, as prompt ia the camp as they are brave upon the field. Now and then von may hear a taunt about our praying Oap tain' or Colonel but even thes thought less expressions come from men who vea eir officers and would follow theta j to the death. As you know, some of our ablest Gaaerals are men who have drop I ped the gown of the christian for the ap- parel of the soldier. Polk was a bishop, I Pendleton a clergyman, D. II. Hill a r- ligious author, Jackson a dignitary of the chureh, while scores of others, occupying subordinate positions, are eqnallv 'well known for their devotion at tho shrine of Christianity. Allofth ese gentletaen have bocn eminently successful in whatever thev have undertaken, havo passed unharmed through the dangers by which they have been frequently environed, and are living illustrations of the trnth that a fighting christian is as terrible to his enemies as be is geatlc to hi friends. Gen. Jackson never eaters a figitt with out first asking God' bWwg and protec tion. The darjend thia -Etranrre man upon the Deity seems never to be ab sent from his mind, and whatever he does, or says, it is alwavs prefaced "by Gods blessing" ' v In one of his official despatches, be com mences : " By God's blessing we have to day defeated the enemy.' " Saidono of his officer! to him the other day " Well, General, another candidate ;(refering to Pope)ia awaiting your attentions." uS'o oserve, was the quiet tcply, " and 1 bj God's blessing 1st shall receive them to. iiis lull satisfaction." !

The General, commanding the Brigade, having been authorized to have inscribed on the battle flgs of his Regiments the names of actions in which they have par participated, avails himself of the oppor tunity to refer to some of those actions. xu in ew bern, besides a fleet of gunboats yeu fought 13,000 of the best troops in me x'eaerai service Having reserves of 7,000 men. You numbered les than 4, 000, not ten of whoraj officers and men, had ever bn in batti before. After an uninterrupted fire oflfour hours vrWli has uoj beeen exceeded in severity bv anv you have sine heard except for one hour at lysines' .Aim,; and, after you had inflic ted on the enemy a tyss of not less than half your own number in killed and woun ded you made -good your, retreat out of a peniiBula ia wbtcK e ;liad confidently boasted that hewcltrapture you as ho would chickens in a coop.' At Slash Chureh tou encountered the division of Gen. Porter, and a part of the division of Gen. Sedgwick, numbering at least 20.000, and including fi,000 United States regulars. You, with the two father regiments tem porarily acting with ou, numbered about 4,000. Yon repulsed' the enemy's attack, and boldly advancing attacked "hira with such vigor that, altera six hours' combat, you withdrew in perfect order, to avoid being surrounded during the night the enemy not daring to follow you beyond the field of battle. Your Commander might have justified mmssu in retiring, oetore sucu superior forces, both atNewbetn and Slash Church; but when oa assuming a command he re solved never to retreat before any hostile force without fighting. . it, he did not place too high an estimate bn the valor aad dis cipline of the brave men it is his prie to command. In the late brilliant operations before Richmond, you were th first Brigade to cross the Chickahoniiny ; you were" th first to encounter the 'enemy, and vou were the first to start hitn on that retreat in which the able combinations of our Gen erals-in-Chief allowed him to take no rest until he found shelter under the guns of his shipping. You captnred from him a flag before any other ; troops had crossed the Chickahominy. At Meeh&nicsviliQ 'you were under a heavy fire on Thursday evening, the 25th t and Friday morning which you had no opportunity to return. At Gr.i nes' Miil vou opened the fiVht. and continued in it until the enemy had been driven from every part of the field. On Monday, at Frazier's farm, you were again in the heart of the engagement, from its opening to its closs, driving tho enemy before you for a great distance, and cap turing a battery. On Tuesday, at Malvern Hill, yoa were again under a terrifio fire, which you had no opportunity .to return. Though rarely able to turn out 3,600 men for duty, yon have in six pitched bat tles and several skirmishes, lost 1,250 in killed aud wounded. Otfive Colonels two have been killed in battle, two woundfed, and one taken pris oner an overwhelming force. Whilst making this bloody but brilliant record for your Brigade, you havo been, as soldiers of freedom should always be, mod est, uncomplaining, and regardful of what is due to others. Your ranks hare been thinned by the casualties f war, but be not discouraged. In a few days they will be filled by re cruits, and yours will. be the proud task of teaching there to maintain the reputation you havo achieved.

Liquor makzb, sslleu akd Drinker dkad. On the first Sunday of January, 186 , a liquor-maker and ven der, from the northern part of this coun ty, passed by our residence on his way down the country with a load of his stock ia trade. A friend of Ours, who was with us at that time, on hearing his occupation determined to talk with him about it, and try to convince him of the error of his way. He took'' a temperance tract in his hand and west to the peddler's wagoa, and hailing him asked "What arc yon loaded with 3" " Whiskey," ho replied. ' How many men will that load kill ?" " None' Our friend then asked him if he did not think he was doing wrong, and that he ouirht to Quit it. To wbieh lift 1 j uv ri v j 3 - fr 1 . 7 replied, "iNo, ill be d d if I don't make a.d sell il long as I lire." Oar friend i..ju pvts mm me vraci ana astea nim to read it. The poor wretch left ns, and started in pursuit of one of his class to help hira drink away hia sorrow, cursing the friends of temperance. He looked with disdain upon the tract, as he walked away, swearing that he womld not read it, until he became so ancrry that he tore it ia pieces and threw it upon the ground. 1 suppose tne poor man Kept his word, for he had but a short tima to annnd in tVii. way. About a week thereafter his spirit j departed lor a more dreary region than it is pleasant to contemplate. O, that thia poor man had taken the advice of a friend! But no, he drank until he died. LEWXAM. Cleaveland county, N. C. Sward in the Heavens. We aro informed by gentlemen whose veracity cannot be questioned, that on the 22d instant, near Grooversville, Georgia, a phenomenon of remarkable significance was witnessed in the heavens at about 4 o'clock in the evening. It vf as a perfect representation of a. sword handle, blade aud point all visible. The blade was red and the handle silver color. The blade pointed toJJbe Northeast and tU handle to the ; South west. It was high up in the heavens, appearing to the eye about twen ty feet long and two feet broad. Soon af ter it was witiessed, a wind springing up heavy clouds appeared and screened it from view. We are not one of those who attach a peculiar significance to remarkable dreams, believe in witchcraft, or view erery celes tial phenomenon as an omen of good or evil. But no similar phenomenon to the one in question has been witnessed for many generations, and we are therefore, owing to the peculiar circumstances sur rounding us, inclined to regard it as sig nificant. Flavius Josephu8, in his history of the Jews, refers to a similar appearance in the heavens just previous to the deitruction of Jerusalem. He says that a star, retemUing sword, stood over the city, and a comet that continued a whole year. Another writer, ve are informed,deacribes the sword as. .hanging over the city, with tho point down. After the deitruction of Jerusalem th star disappeared. This phenomenon has aiways, oy learned Uivmcs, been described as the " Sword of the Lord:' From the de struction of Jerusalem to the present pe riod nd such representation has been beheld in the Heavens. Tho mysterious workings of the " God of Hosts and of Battles" are as difficult to comprehend in our day and generation as they were in the days when Jerusalem was detroyed by fire and sword. And it mav be possible that this second appearance of me - awora oi tne Jiord" (as tac reverend gentleman who had the pleasure of sinir it styled it,) was an omen to the people of mo oouLfl uiat ineysnould speedily carry the sword of justice andof liberty between the bound of the Confederacy, and dye its blade 'crimson in the blood of our ene- mies, who have not only disregarded the principles of civil aid religious liberty, but have mocked Deity, by the practiee of their irreligious and degrading isms. The handle of thia sword being in the South aad its blood red btede in the North, may be a token to our hosts to commence the journey of invasion, and this the assurance that the " God of Battles" will uphold and sustain the arms of the Southrons.
