Tho friends of the Union and the Con-
ErmmoN in this city arc invited, williout
distinction of party, to assemble at Bzyaa
Hall this evening, to give expression to
their views on the present crisis in our na
tional affairs. We aak every citizen who
rejoices ill the protection of the Stars and
Btripes—every one who cherishes the hal
lowed memories. of 70—who feels the
blood course more swiftly in his veins at
ths mention of Tbrktown and Canker Hill
—who holds tho privileges and tho name
of an American, citizen above earthly price
*—wc ask each and all whether the preser
vation of tho Union and ths Constitution,
is not, at all times, of paramount import
a net? We are not speaking of the com
mercial aspects of Lie crisis, which, to the
whole Northwest/are of momentous con
cern. Wc are not discussing its moral re
lations to the institution of slavery. We
appeal to the -sjciple patriotism of every
man nourished on American soil—of every
one who has found refuge on that soil from
the despotism of foreign lands. The ques
tion now presented is solely a question of
I.OVE of country, without which the citi
zen is unworthy of a country, and desti
tute of claims to 3 share in the brotherhood
of man.
Let those who love the Union of the
States and the Constitution as our fathers
made it, rally to-night at Bryan Hall, and
lift up their united Toicc in behalf of the
best form of government that the sun ever
shone upon. Let it be well and clearly
made known that the chief emporium of
the Northwest will follow the national em
blems to the last extremity, and aid with all
her might in throwinx the plotters of trea
son over the Tarpeian rock.

An order has been received at Fort
Leavenworth, from-Gcn. Scott, directing ali
the available forces there to hold them
selves in readiness to be transferred to
Fort McHenry at any moment. Fort
McHenry ia situated near Baltimore. The
purpose of the order is doubtless to bring
the troops within cosy reach in the event
of a raid upon Washington City._
It is rumored also -that troops hare been
ordered from Fortress Monroe, (at Old
Point Comfort,) to Fort Sumter.
The U. S. Arsenal at Mobile, Ala,, has
been seized by a mob, and it i. reported
that Fort Morgan, (also at Mobile) has
shared a similar fate.

SITUSGFXZLD, Jan. 4,1861,
Among the distinguished ccntlcmeu here
probably by the invitation of Hr. Lincoln, arc
Bon. Amos Tuck of New Hampshire and
Gov. Chase of Ohio, the latter of whom will
unquestionably be offered a scat in the Cabi
net—probably the Secretaryship of Stale. Mr.
Tack has been strongly urged as Secretary cf
the Navy—a place in which hi? former position
in the House Committee on Naval Alfrirs pe
culiarly fits him. Mr. Chase is this evening in
consultation with the President elect. .Mr.
Tuck had a conference this afternoon. Mr.
Lincoln Is calmly and coolly completing hi*
arrangements without reference to the absurd
advice tendered him by timid men in various
parts of the country, to makeup his Cabinet
without reference to the dctcauds and expec
tations of the party that elected him. It is
not true that Gen- Cameron has been tendered
a Cabinet appointment.
The cify begins to fill up with members of
the Legislature, and outsiders attracted here
by the importance of the session. The candi
dates for the various places ia the two houses
ore numerous. For Speaker of the House, two
names are mentioned promirently. Jarrot of
St. Clair and Cullom of Sangamon, with the
chances in frvor of the success of the former
though the latter has many friends. . ’
There Is much excitement here to-day in
reference to the news of the contemplated at
tack on Maj. Anderson in Fort Sumter, and
among all parties there Is hot one sentiment
in relation to the duty of the Iriends of the
Union in this emergency. Mr. Lincoln is of
course much concerned for the gallant little
bond bclcagued in Charleston harbor, and no
doubt Impatiently* waits the day in which he
may send the forces of the Republic, one and
indlvisablc, to their relief and thc'discomfiture
of the enemies of popular government. He
attended Church to-day, la obedience to
the Presidential proclamation, and it is
to be presumed that in Ms prayore Mr.

A Voice for the Union.
Vihccoaxs !—A word of affectionate coun
sel with-you on this day of National fast, hu
miliation and prayer I In the midst ofthe
clamorand fierce excitement of the times, can
you be indoced for a moment to heed the
voice, not‘of a politician, notof an office-hold
er or ecekcr, but simply of a Union-loving
American citizen t A Virginian by birth and
residence till manhood, bound by the most sap
cred of all ties to the Old. Commonwealth, to
■which filial and fraternal duty prompts an an
nual pilgrimage, I will not be suspected of
sectional hostility in addressing to you 11 the
words of soberness and truth.”
The question of aggression, alleged by each

what a commentary npon the boasted perma

pots of the earth!
No ench thlngas secession was contemplated
by tho framers of the Constitution. The Falt
ers of Uie Republic, embracing Virginia’s most
illustrious statesmen, uniformly denied the
existence of any ench right. It is idle, there

right of secession, and with a reckless chsre
imrd of your counsel, an Insulting scoffing at
the remonstrance of many sister States (better
able than beraelfto estimate theevils of which
she comphuns), has plunged precipitately into
revolution and open war. Apprehensive, if
time were allowed for the conservative union
sentiment gf the Border States to prevail in
joc councils of the nation, that its bitter sec
tional controversy might be amicably adjusted,

political aflalrs,she declares bcrsclfaniode-
I endent nation, and flaunting her flag of trea

the world as the very embodiment of (emeritv
arrogance and folly. . ,
Virginians, will yon permit South Carolina
to drag your noble Commonwealth into the
vortex ofrcvolution? Do not, limploioyju.be
deceived by the fatal delusion that ptaeeaNe
secession, is posstifc, or that the Union ran now
be dissolved and then be reconstructed upon a
basis more favorable to the institutions of the
p’Outli. Bach alluring intimations of South
Carolina ami her confederates la rebellion,
arc the specious blandishments of your worst
enemy. Secession, I rrjxat, is revolution , and
rrvolution I* war. The question tlicnurisca are
you prepared for war? Has your political and
hocial status become so intolerable as to iustl
«y tbcseverance of your tics with this glorious
Confederacy? Nobly avowinga willingness to
ignore the past, is your future in the Union so
•regnant with inevitable evil as to demand
n advance rebellion, disunion and war?
What would be your justification in the eyes
ofthe world for following In the wake of that
little piratical tug, which having lowered onr
glorious national banner, hoists In Us place
ihe pjlmctto flat-, and commands you (o fight
under it Fight what? To fight your sister
states, aye to assail tin's noblest member ofthe
. great family of nations.
The con.-titufional election of a President,
were he, as charged, to entertain views
mimical to slavery, would furnish you no jus
tification. But Lincoln, however resolute iu
adhering to his platform, will -prove equally
firm in the execution of the laws of the coun
try, aud will astonish you and ronse the indig
nation of extremists in both sections by Ins
undeviating and conservative patriotism. An
other alleged ground for secession is a sup
posed hostility to the people of the South now
deemed almost universal at the North. This
is another of those wilful perversions of the
truth, by which designing politicians inflame
the passions of the people, to the prejudice of
the best Interests of the whole country. Ten
years residence in the North enables me to de
clare with roost emphatic earnestness, the
utter falsity of this impression, now so preva
lent at the South. There is, on the contrary,
a very general fraternal regard entertained by
i he people ofthe North toward their brethren
of the South. The apprehension that the abo
■ilkm of slavery in the South is contemplated
by the North, must ere this have been quieted
!*y the propositions of Seward and the leading
Republicans, so to amend the Constitution os
to render this impossible. The people here
sympathize wilhthepcop.Voftlxc South, though
t lie seceding States forfeit all claim to the con
fidence and affection of the North, the sever
ance being violent and without just cause, dis
astrous to both sections, but particularly so to
the rebels themselves.
To embitter the people of the North against,
lltosp of the South, secession Is the surest
method. On the other hand, were It practica
ble, I could suggest no more certain rcinedv
for the. terrible strife now convulsing the ua*
tiou than the appointment by each district of
every Southern State of their lest men, (not
politicians) to tisii the Xortfu I would guar
antee them natouly'a most cordial reception
and hospitable entertainment, but such gen
uine manifestations of kind feeling, and so
frank uu interchange of political sentiments,
its would completely disarm politicians of their
unholy influence over the masses, and restore
l be country to its wonted peace.
-Vlas, that designing demmrognes—extrem
ists North and South—should be able so to ex-
dte the prejudices of the one section against
the other, as to crush the conservatism of the
country, and eradicate from the hearts of the
people the love of the Union! Virginians, arc
you ready to further these traitorous machina
tions for the overthrow of the Government?
Have you counted the cost, realized the uni
versal distress, brought home to you the hor
rors of civil war ? Think of it, not in the dis
tsmee, but as imminent, aye as already com
menced, and the spread of which nothing but
the goodness of God can avert from us.
Reflect upon the thousands and tens of thou
sands of widows nud orphans which such a
war would cast upon the cold charity of the
world, the fearful carnage, the unrelenting
terrors of internecine strife, (he total prostra
tion of the commerce and all the materia] ln
icrcsta of the country, which would Inevitably
follow, and above all the arrest iu her proull

C5T* The Webb Sisters continue to attract
good houses at McVicker’s Theatre. This is
their twelfth night, and we understand they
remain next week, when another extravaganza
will be produced. This is the last night of
Beauty and the Beast, which is performed first
to allow the children to see it and return, if
they sec lit, though the whole performance
Wiil terminate at half-past ten. Take the

A New FARSfEK’s Barojxeteh. —We have

with a flexible section, so arranged as to com
pensate for the changes of temperature, leav
ing the height of the mercurial column entire
ly unchanged by the extremes of heat or cold,

tially obviates the hitherto great uncertainty
of reading the barometer. This Instrument is

To (he fanner a barometer is invaluable, as
it invariably indicates the approach of a storm,

Mcootys.—Our friend Muggins rode out
yesterday. Ho invested & V and as collateral
look a pair of bays and a swan-neck cutter.
Altogether Muggins was the envy of tho Ave
nue. He only one mUbop. At a
street crossing, while moving at something
under 2:40, he came near running down the
venerable Spriggins, moving slowly on foot.
It was a small remove from being a hospital
case, and Bpriggina made a scramble of It for
the sidewalk. Muggins put on tho brakes and
brought the bays to a stand still by a display
of science that would have set Rarcy crazy.
He meekly apologized to the injured Sprig
gins, observing that it being Fast-day he was
out for a little relaxation, “Tea,” growled
Spriggius the venerable, “ ye appear unto men
too Fast” It was too much for Muggins, nud
he walked the bays for three* entire blocks,
pondering the matter.
The Boos Trade, —Happening in at Col
by’s Gift Store, No. 118 Randolph street, yes
terday, wo had occasion to notice the inroads
made in bis extensive general stock by the
late Holiday Trade, not that it is to be under
stood that there arc not moretthawn w a few
more left.” The fact is valuable as indicating
a growing and laudable taste in community
for making gifts of good and sterling books.
Mr. Colby’s stock comprises a very wide
range of volumes, from the elegant issues rich
In Turkey morocco, and embossed work, down
to the cheap muslin editions, which by the
wise liberality of publishers, have brought
classic and standard novelists, dramatists, his
torians, and Uteratcurs, within the reach of
the humblest purchaser.
Some of tbo volumes sad setts stQl on Mr.
Colby’s shelves are gems ■worth any pur*
chaser’s possessing, while the most moderate
purse need not go away without an armful of
good reading. The little folks ore liberally
remembered In hts stock by some of the most
charming little volumes that ever delighted
young humanity.
A principle in Hr. Colby's trade inaugurated
by him and continued through over four years
of successful trade in this city, and that, too*
coveting a period of depression and panic, la
the accompanying each purchase of a book
with a gill of jewelry, ranging in class and val
ue from a watch, to a ring or somosmaller arti
cle. While his prices for the same volumes
are as low as that of any other house in the
city, this added feature Is a very satisfactory,
and as It proves, moat popular one.
For these reasons set forth, the store No.
118 Randolph street seems a very dellrable
place to be visited by those in search of books,
not only through the Holiday period but at all
seasons of the year.
Prryenfor oarßdleri sndthe Nation
They Rale.
It certainly seems & healthy change in pub
lic sentiment, when a confession is made by
the President of our Nation that there may be
something after all, in national affairs, suita
ble to furnish ■ a theme., for pulpits and
prayer-meetings. We used to be told
by the highest authorities in Democracy, that
political preaching and political prayers were
a chief evil among ns, and of sufficient magni
tude to evoke thunders from the Senate
Chamber, and solemn protests in Presidential
Messages, and it is no remote page in our his
tory that bears the grave rebate to the
“ three thousand clergymen.”
Wc have come, upon a new state of things,
yhea the highest of our Public Functionaries
actually invites from the sacred desk and the
conference room a share of attention to pres
ent human affairs, willing, as it would seem,
to qjlow that subjects for prayer and preaching
may be found less remote in history than an
cient Babylon and Judea, and nearer than Bor
rtoboola Glia, and Patagonia.
The National Fast Day in this city yesterday
was vciy generally observed by the religions
public, and very full notes are appended of
these services in numbers of onr churches.
In the city at large there was little, however,
to mark the day. The Post-office was closed,
as also tbe Federal Courts, and there was no
meeting on ’Change, though probably had it
convened it would have been one of tbo most
solemn gatherings of the day. The streets
were busy us usual, and under tbe influences
of good sleighing and a clear cold atmosphere
a liberal use was made of livery and private
establishments. Still a very large nnmbcr of
our citizens turned aside from their usual avo
cations for a portion of the day at least, and
assembled in their several places of worship,
where the exercises, under the influence of the
alarming aspects of the times, were of an im
pressive and interesting character. With this
this preface we proceed to separate mention
of some of these gatherings.
Rev. W. N. Patton, thepastor of this Church,
oue of the most prominent in tho TVcst Di
vision, has on two successive preceding Sab
baths made especial reference to our national
uffilrs. Sabbath before last he chose his theme
“Prayer for Rulers,” and on last Sabbath “Tin
Suddenness of Revolutions,” from the text 2d
Chron., 29, Sfi, “ And the thing was done sud
denly,” showing how God advances His cause
on earth. Having thus In a measure anticipa
ted the themes suggested for yesterday, no
public service was held In tho main audience
room, but large and fully attended prayer
meetings were held at 11 A. M. and 2 P. M.
At 7}£ last evening the occasion of the usual
Church Preparatory Lecture Mr, Patton
preached from Is. 50th cli., 10th verse, his
theme being; Directions to those who arc in
gloom by reason of trials, personal and gene
rM. Of the services at this church yesterday
as a whole it may be said that both In pastor
and people there was betokened a recognition
of tho workings of Providence in present
events. The President elect was often remem
bered and in. feeling and Impressive terms, in
view of the high trusts about to be commit
ted to him.
The New School Presbyterian Churches
united at half-past 2 o'clock In a union ser
vice in the Second Presbyterian Church. The
pastor. Rev. Dr, Patterson, led the exercises,
and after an oppropriatc prayer by Mr. T.po,
read the 121-2-3 and 4th X’salms. Rev. Mr.
Swnzcy, of the Third Presbyterian Church,
said this was an occasion in which our ill
desert and absolute dependence upon God
were manifest. Amid all the doubt and dan
gers by which we are surrounded, all could
find comfort in the assurance that God’s pur
poses to this nation and to his chosen people
would be accomplished. He was able to ward
off disasters, and can so dispose of this the
best of Governments as to advance the gloiy
of his kingdom. It Is well, that the
Executive has called the peop.o together, and
recommended them to bring their case before
Him who is both able and willing to deliver
us out of all our troubles.
Rev. Mr. Dickinson said it was an indication
for good when the President, distrusting his
own wisdom, and that of those by whom he
is surrounded, recommended the Christians of
the nation to bring the matter directly to the
“ Inflnltoono.” This very fact gives us a right
to hope that God will hear and answer the
prayers of his people. Man's wisdom, the
counsels of the wise ones of the land were all
at fault The praying of Christians will have
a good effect upon those who do not pray.
Thousands of Christians in all the star* States
were earnestly praying with ns for a peaceful
solution of our present difficulties, and he be
lieved God would hear and answer prayer.
Rev. J. A. Wight of the Olivet Presbyterian
church, spoke ol the great anxiety he had felt
for a long rime, for the reason that in family,
social and public prayer, lie had beard so little
fbr the government. When ihe proclamation
for the fast was first published, some said we
should not pay any attention to it, for nobody
had any confidence in the President. If that
were so, it afforded the strongest reason why
we should observe it, for we all have coufi
dencc in God. God holds the hearts of ail
men in His bands. If any* one thinks the
President has no courage, God can give him
that, If bo lacks Integrity, God can prompt to
that. He can inspire our rulers with exactly
those qualities necessary to protect all our
rights as a nation. He instanced Saul, who
though never converted, and ut first a timid
youth—was led to fulfil the purposes of God
and bring deliverance to his chosen people. A
general on the eve of battle, observing a doz
en men at a distance, upon their frees, and be
ing told they were engaged, in prayer, said
that tbo battle was already more than half won.
The fact that this Fast was appointed was a
sign of hope.
Bcv. Mr. Humphrey, of the First Presbyte
rian Church, remarked: God always cnconr
aged bis people to como to him in all times of
trouble. We should hare confidence In him
as our Sovereign. This people of old wore
encouraged to go to him, with the assurance
that he lelt an interest in all their affairs. Our
Cithers had the same confidence in God that
the best of the Israelites had. £vcry stone In
the foundation of our Confederacy was Laid in
prayer. We should all, as individuals, oher?
ish the same hopes. God's purposes to this
nation, and to this church, will be fulfilled.
The Union may be broken. Israel was broken,
but the fruits thus scattered were now blessing
all the nations of the earth- We may not he
guilty ofthe sin of slavery. If so, wo arc not
called upon to hnmble ourselves for that; bnt
we may have opposed it bitterly and in a bad
spirit If so, we should repent and bumble
ourselves before God. W T c may have grown
proud and self-confident, and if so, we shooid
bow humbly before the Lord. We must have
strong faith in him—lalth, though a storm of
blood envelope ns.
Rev. {Dr. Patterson said we have come to
gether to pray [not only for the nation, hat for
the safety of the church. God can make it in
strumental ia saving ns politically. The church
should be remembered here, the church South
as well as North, Where passian most gov
erned them men were crying earnestly to God,
and be believed their prayers would be beard.
The audience then sung the hymn com
“ I love thy Kingdom, Lord,**
and Hew J. E. Boy made an earncstand appro
priate prayer.
Peter Pago, Esq., referred to tho duty of
Christians to take an active interest in tho
political concerns of the country. Christians
had no moral right to leave the government of
the nation to thc-managcment of tho vikrpor
tion of tho community. What could we
expect when the wicked rule, but cruel dis
cord and strife.
A stranger to us here asked that we should
privately, if not appropriate here, pray for
Major Anderson and hit men, that God would
protect them from the mod one* around them.
They were octaqrylng a most important posi
tion. la this their hour of
trial, might la %ome measure depend the fate
of the uatlohf! Wc should pray that God
would protect ftem if attacked, and not suffer
them to be sacrificed to the wild spirit of exci
ted men.
Short, and it JsTtd bchoped effective* prayers
were made by gjbnticmeu between several of
the addresses; asd the meeting separated with
a firmer faith lathe power and the all protect
ing care of Israa’a God:
A large congregation was present at the
Clark street MJu Church, where the different
Methodist Societies had assembled.
Rev. 0. H. Tiffcny delivered an Interesting
and patriotic sermon, which was listened to.

This day wily; he remembered in his

danger.” The Unfcm of our States, th- hope of
our fathers, and the heritage of the world, tain
Imminent danger. The speaker then traced a his
tory of tho growthef the Union in the addition of
new States and the attempts at pres erring the bal
ance of power between the shareholding and non
blateholdlng States.-.For the first time in the his
tory of the nation the principles of the North and
South have been arrayed against each other at tho
ballot box, as opposing forces. The North ba*-
won the victory, the responsibility for the*
right use of the power thus acquired rests npou
her. It should be exercised In maintaining tho
permanence of the Union of these States, There
are noJust causes for the dismemberment of this 1
Confederacy, certainly none la view of the disas
ters which snch dismemberment would necessarily
entail. The teachings of history are full of terrible
examples. We read them In the centuries ofblood
ahed and disorder which followed the division of
the Macedonian, the Roman and the Mogul Em
pires. Oar own fkr-scclug statesmen hare declared
the impossibility of the breaking up of this Con
federacy without convulsion. We have no right
to expose either ourselves orot-cra to so Imminent
a peril.
it we allowed the establishment of an Empire
determined to rc-open the slave trade. It might in
volve us in a war with thona nation-* who have
leagued with us to pm an end to it. If this calam
ity should be averted, the line which marks the
separation of the States, instead of being as now a
glace for friendly greeting, wonld be tbelinu.be
md which men wonhl Intrench themselves in bat
tle ami would be tbe scene of civil war, or falling
this, our brethren of one blood, one history, one
nationality, would be left alone, exposed to all the
horrors of servile Insnrrect ion. These evils we are
bound in duly to prevent. They can alone bo
stayed by the preservation of the Union.
Let. us suppose that these calamities do not fall
on us, we must inevitable lose national power, na
tional prosperity—and tb’e opportunity fur the ad
vancements of nulled Christian Influences. These
wc cannot afford to pan with, because of the com
plaints of the dissatisfied. Whose ia to he the his

History is not a record of time but a treasury of
deeds and principles, and our record Is filled np
with great names and deeds of fame. Call for the

The various Episcopal congregations in this
city were invited to a Union Service fn Trinity
Church on Madison street. The religious ex'
crciscs were ofa deeply impressive audso’emn
character, and were participated In by several
of the Episcopal Clergy and by a large congre
gation. After the appointed Morning Service
had. been read and appropriate psalms and
hymns sung, the Hector of Trinity, Rev.
James Pratt, said that it had been thought
better, iustcad ofa set sermon on the occasion,
to have a few remarks from each of his breth
ren present, to be in each case concluded by a
prayer. He would therefore first call upon the
Her. Dr. Claukson, of Bt, James Church,
who spoke somewhat as follows:
There never has been. In the history of our Lind,
a day of such solemn Importance as iblf, when all
tho people are summoned to pray to Almlgbtr God
to save us from threatened divisions, ana to avert
the fearful horrors of a civ}] war. This Is no time
to enter Into a discussion upon the causes of our
national troubles, and this is no place to set forth
oor Individual theories as to the best plan of set
tling these troubles; w« are met for another and a
different purpose, simply to ask tho Lord God of
oar Fathers, and of ourselves, and of oor children,
to end onr difficulties in Hie own way, and by Ilia
owu power. \Tc acknowledge the powcrle?sne J s
of man. We own the utter inability of oar best
men to propose anything, or to cany out anything,
that wifi restore peace, order and happiness to our
poor dismembered land; and therefore ns a people
of faith and prayer wo have but one resource—the
mercy and the loving kindness of tUo King of
Kings and Lord of Lords.
It may be very well for ns. away from scenes of
trouble, to talk about blockading ports, ami cap
taring capitals. and burning chics, ns if these
were matters of child-play; but la there a Christian
man. Is there a humane man,here, who is not ready
to fall upon his knees, and to sav from his henrt,
” O God. preserve ns from the aw'fal terrors of civil
war; let not oor noble land be lit up with the flames
of an earthly Hell.” It Is bad enough, God knows,
when JuiUonsremotefrorocach otiierin svmrahJw,
m interests and In the bloody con
flicts of the battle-field; but Is there a language
that can describe. Is there an imagination that can
grasp, the horrible picture of brothers of one fami
ly. men of one flesh and Hood and name, standing
up in this land and ace, to shoot cab othsrdown
like dogs ?
Sow, I asy that every Christian \rara. and every
Christian women also, who has not praved, and
who does not every day pray, to Almlsoty God
to deliver ns from danger# like these. Is almost as
machatraltoros the miserable wretch who dares to
stretcWorth a ruthless hand to strike down s govern
ment hallowed by so many sacred associations as
ours. There can be treason then in thechnrc'i and
treason in the closet of the Christian,as well as trea
son in the councils of tbopoUticians. list I have
hopoyet that all will #OO2 be right again. I be
lieve it, because God rules—because God bears
prayer, and because tbo people have began to pray.
I have no patience with Christian people who go
about wringing their hands and saving. -Wc are all
ruined, “wc arc all going to destruction." Of
uoursoweareaU ruined if we have lost faith in
God, and have forgotten to pray, and have left ev
erything in tho hands of the destrovers.
Bat I say that If Chri-tlau people, aad Christian
families, and Christ on churches, were unceasing
audi nportufiate in their petitions to the Great
God to have merer qp° a os, and deliver 09. that
God would tear, (I apeak it with reverence.) for He
has premised, and he cannot He. And it U the
only thing that will save us. There la more hope,
it seems to me, in day# and trouble# like these In
ona humble believer s fervent prayers, than Inajl
the messages of Presidents, and all the dodges of
demagogues, and all the resolutions of commit
tees. I say do right, trust In God, and bo ready
for the worst.
I believe that after this day’* pravers
have reached the skies, that the clouds
over us will begin to scatter. Some of you verr
ago,when this dty, and
anthlß portion of the country, was visited or the
terrible scourge of the cholera. Hen were alarmed
and panic-stricken everywhere. Business was dc
preased. “Death was in the palaco and in the
hom. rear and sorrow and agony abounded.
Friend# of yesterday we carried to tbegravo to-dar.
- I, ° wan felt sure of his life for the next hour The
number of victims increased with a steady growth
from day to day, and all hone seemed to desert
every heart. But on the 4th dayof August, DM9 a
universal prayer was proclaimed and held, and tbo
people came aptothellooso of God, aud cried ont,
“ Spare ns. Good Lord, spare Thy people.” And
somehow, from that very hour, a new heart seemed
to possess us all. We took courage and looked no
and felt safe. Aud it is a fact, as the dally registry
of deaths will show, that the ravagesbf the pesti
lence began sensibly to diminish—the number of
deaths seemed to decrease at once, and happiness
and joy and gratitude took tho place of terror and
consternation. So I believe it will be now But
aa I said before this. Is no time for much sneakier,
but for prayer. Lot ut pray.
The Rev. Dr. Clarkson then read the prayer
set lor the times by Bishop Bargees of Maine,
after which the Rev. Clinton Locke of Grace
Church made the following remarks:
There are, beloved, many persons In these Uni
ted States who are this day Unghing contemptu
ously at the Idea of this Nations fjDay being able to
make any difference In the state of thing*. Thor
»ay, ‘‘what good la It going to do: Is it going to
put off secession, or tranquil Ire the country, or
aolre the party problem of state riuhts and general
rights f We have brought this oh ourselves and
now we have got to bear the consequences/’ Let
us answer them la tho spirit of. tho tscrlpfarcs.
•There was a tatlon once whom God had purposed
to destroy— folly ipsolved to sweep It away, and
oat forty days remained to the end of their national
existence. One of his prophets besought that peo
ple to turn wUh fasting and prayer to their Al
mighty Father. Be ehowed them la wore* Which
Heaven inspired, how their own sinfulness had
brought about this destruction, and be besought
them to repent They believed him. In sackcloth
anoashosthfrklagandthepcarant bewailed their
feinsj and tbeir sorrow was not in vain. The ecrip
tore goes on to ear: “God saw their works, that
tKov turned from tSrir evil vfiays; and God repented
sbat he bad said he would do nnto.tbem,
aflabccildltnot.” lias God changed, beloved. Has
his character altered since the time of Jonah, and
■ wj ceased to interfere wilh the ways ol nations?
Oh. is he not (he same to-dav* yesterday and for

darker, and yet darker. Is ibociond on onr horizon;
cmvfnsion la in onr councils and Irresolution In our
officers; boastful and Indecent triumph In-one
section, aud wild, feckless . denunciation In
another; a want of truthfulness, pf broth
eriy confidence; a fear of being overreached
in political bargaining: a lack of patriotism,
brought about, alas I with how much justice, by n
feeling that the aflUlra ot the country have passed
into tue hands of political hacks, who n«o them for
tbuir own selfish purposes. All these are upon us,
around us, amoiu: us, and we stand trembling on
the vcryojjf a tremendous crisis, and ask ourselves
Can it be true thit these noble States, tho envy
and admiration of the world, are to take arms
against each other.What shall we do to escape
so groat a,calamity f Do. beloved, as the people of
Xiuevch did—tom toGod aedask him to arrest the
calamity. Ask Him to turn his anger from us, and
return to ns his Messing. Do not forget that “un
derneath ns arc the everlasting arms,” and that
those arms have often btva stretched out to save.
When the fleetof Philip, invincible it moved la it*
tremendous force, bore down upon the shores of
England, and a trembling, penitent people crowded
to to ask for Ilia Almighty aid.
whose hand was It that dashed that fleet upon the
rocks and saved the Reformed Chnrch from ruin ?
as it not the Fame God who now rules over ub ?
Alas, wo win not recognize this until all earthly
means have failed. Trusting lu Providence is our
last resource; and yet perhaps Sod meant It to be
&o, for It shows that human old Is merely human,
anq that in the hour of trial, God must bo sought
and recognized. Jn this hour, I, for one, can see
no earthly light. The questions which have arisen
arc so complicated, every step seems so embar
rassed. that ihe only opening, is the way to God’s
footstool. There let us cast ourselves, and while
we resolve to act like manly, true, patriotic Amer
icans, loving our common country belter than
any political sect, let us say “God be merdfol
to ns sinners.” Let as cry “Wc have sinned;
wo hare done wickedly, torn thine anger from
os, and return to ns peace,” and then Jet
ua resign ourselves. Whatever may bo the Is
sue, and He may determine it shall be a bloody
one, let us resign ourselves to Hia sovereign
pleasure, and say “ God’s will be done.”
After Mr. Locke bad finished, ho read the
“ Prayer fer Congress,” and was [succeeded by
Rev. Mr. Tuttle, who spoke In substance as
The reason which Jesus taught us, Is that Divine
Providence governs all things, so that the very
hairs of our uesd are alt numbered, and not even a
sparrow falls to the ground without our Father'd
notice. Ono would think th t this great truth
would always be present with us; and the thought
ofit w-uld go with ua In every day’s rest; and
early in the morning would wake bur hearts to
gratitude and warm our tongues to praise. But
man Is not so constituted. There Is nothing so
good and merciful that ho docs cot get used to It.
Cod dispenses, dully and yearly, his bounties of
seed ihneand harvest, as during the past vear; but
nothing rouses us from our apathy unless a panic,
or threatened civil war arouse us to own the hlce--
rings of a never-falling Providence. The senses
ail are steeped In dull decay, till aroused by dan
gers which threaten our beloved country. The
leatiOtt la all of God’s judgments, and especial
ly tho oue we should heed to-day. is to turn to
Uo-i In humility and prayer. For the same spirit
which tempted us to forget Him in our prosperity,
would seem to take vengeance upon us iu our perils
and adversity, by leading us to distrust Him.
Without Him, wc find, wnun trial comes, is to be
■wPUout hope,and Icaru that it is all from God;
because as lie Is the author of all good, so there is
no evil but by his permission; and ns the scale
made up of aggregated drops, bo the sea of Nation
al Evil ia bat the aggregated sins of individual*,
and thus each individual, searching out hla own
►ins and repenting of them, would call down a
blessing from God out Saviour, to whom let us all
now pray.
The prayer of Bishop Mellvalnc was then
read by Mr. Tuttle.
At the conclusion of Mr. Tuttle’s remarks,
Rev. James Pratt, Rector of Trinity Churcht
Mr Brethren : One of the saddest sight* upon
which wo can possibly look is now presentedtolho
people of these Uniud States. I do not refer f>
the secc a ?ion of one State or more, as I might. I
do not refer lothu.thrcaicocd dissolution of this

I have been reminded oftenof late of a little child,
who when irighterfed by a thoughtless brother by
a fearful array of coming evils, raid. •*I know
what Til do brodder. I'll send lor Bod.” And so
at last wc have bethought ourselves. In the midst
of trials and in view of coming evils, to send for
God. As my Brother Clarkson has said, it la vain
to go about charging our present troubles upon
the North or South, the Bast or West.
True, here they are uad wear© In the midst of
them. I am verv ranch afraid that demagogues
and politicians have had no more said of them than
Is true. Bat brethren wc mast not try to make
them thcecapc noatsofour sins—they have enough

humiliation sincere and our prayers acceptable to
God, wc must bring this matter homo to oursdtet.
We are not here to humble ourselves in view of
tUeaina of the South ortho Boat, or of any partic
ular section of our land; we are here to repent ns
of our sins. Tohnmble ourselves before God in
view of oar own offenses. The Church of Christ,
nil over the land, should go down in the dust In'
view of hia coldness and indifference to the threat
work which has been entrusted to his charge.

BishopMeade, and dismissed t he congregation
with the Benediction,
At the Noon Union Prayer Meeting in the
Yonng Mens* Christian Association rooms
there was an Interesting meeting. One of the
brethren present both in remarks and prayer
referred to Maj. Anderson, invoking Divine aid
for him that he might wisely imd well perform
the duties thrust upon him In this crisis.
A Prayer Meeting at the Third Presbyterian
Church, Rev. Mr. Swazey Pastor, on. West
Washington street, was largely attended at 11
A. it. The Pastor read portions of the 7th
chapter of 2d Chronicles, Romans, 13th chap
ter, and the C2d and 75th Psalms,
In the First Baptist Church, Rev. Dr. Everts
Pastor, a very fall Prayc? Meeting was in ses

In the New England Congregational Church,
and several others of the churches in the
North Division, Prayer Meetings were held,
generally well attended and of a most interest
ing character.
Of the meetings of yesterday as a whole it
may be said that they were pervaded with an
Intelligent and patriotic recognition of duties
devolved upon and the nation during
the present crisis. There was mnch of tho
Union saving .spirit but of a nature of saving
to reform and check the growth of evil,rather
than to buy present quiet by a concession of
right and justice. Probably few if any prayers
were uttered that would have very fittingly
opened the sessions of tho Treason Conven
tion at Charleston.

St. Paul’s Uxivehsalist Church.— • On
Wednesday evening, December 4lh, at the an
nual meeting of the Society, George W. Gage,
Cornelius Price and J. Q. Hoyt were re-elected
Trustees for tho ensuing year.
Since the pastorate of this Church was as
sumed by Rev. W. H. Ryder It has enjoyed an
unexampled prosperity. Notwithstanding the
continuance of general business depression, its
financial condition has become greatly Improv
ed, and all embarrassment removed. It is now
in a condition highly satis factory to its friends,
and most flattering to those whose efforts and
usefulness have caused such result.
Vsiox Parh Baptist Church.— The fol
lowing resolutions were unanimously adopted
by the Baptist Church and Congregation of
lowa City, on Sabbath morning December 23d
nit., relative to their pastor, Rev. Jas. Dixon,
who has received and accepted! call to tho
Union Park Baptist Choreh in this city, and
consequently has resigned his pastorship of the
church in lowa City:
Rewired, That as a church wo feel that we can
not refuse onr concurrence In the resignation of
our beloved Pastor, Rev. Jae. Dixon, inasmuch as
we cannot deny the correctness of his lodgment
that the field to which, bo is now iLvited is mom
promising for usefulness than that which he now
Jit* olwd. That we cannot, however, part with
Rro. Dixon without recording our deep regret that
his labors among ns are so soon to terminate; hla
discourses bavins been characterized by each no
common uniformity of excellence that wc have al
ways looked forward Jo tho exercises of the Lord’s
Day with high expectation, and wc have never
been disappointed.
Huolted, That Bro. Dixon carries with him our
prayers as a church, that tho Lord may bless him
in his person and family, and that He may be gra
ciously plca.-ed to open for him a wide and effectual
door of usefulness in the great city to which he is
called, that his labors there mav be, if possible,
even more successful than they'have been-herc,
and above all that tbe Holy Spirit may give effi
ciency to his ministrations, without which Paul
may plant and Apollas water, but there will bo no
Hesoiitil, That the foregoing resolutions bo re
corded in the church book, and that the clerk of
the church furnish Bro. Dixon a copy.
