Excitement Caused by His Action— Tho following sermon on the tomporanco qaoption was preached yesterday morning at tho Forty-seventh Street Congregational Church, by tho pastor, tbo Bov. Edward F. Williams. His text was t And » certain woman coat a piece of a miil-ntono upon Ablmclccb’a head, and nil to break bis skull.— Judges, ix„ C 3. & GO., Abimoloch, tho bramble-king of Shoohom, was a thoroughly unfortunate mao. Ho was unfor tunate in his birth, his name, his character, his friends, and his foes; in a word, disaster fol lowed every stop of his career. On a small scale, his history illustrates tbo history of Alcohol, and os'such X ask you to consider It this morning. Abimoloch was tho son of Qldeon. His mother was a Shochomito, an idolater, as tho name (Father of tho King—a heathen title) given tbo child testifies. A good name is a groat blessing. It pledges its possessor to an effort to securo tbo qualities of character which distinguished him for whoso sake the name is bestowed. Abimo loch was pledged in his name to tho worship of Baal. His father was a man of reputation and sterling virtues. He had delivered Israel from Amalok and Mldlan. Ho was a military here of the first class, cool, brave,'decisive, -magnani mous, and unselfish.' -' For himself : and his descendants ho refused the sovereign ty which a. grateful people pressed upon him. •He opposed tho spirit of idolatry which was rife in his day, yet yielded to its in fluence so far as to raako, without Dlvlno authori ty, a costly opbod,whoso worship at Ophrah, his own city, ho permitted to take the place of tho wbrabip appointed at Shiloh, As a Judge, for forty years no guarded faithfully tbo interests of tho people. lu morals ho was not overstnet. He haa mauy wives, and was tho father of sev enty sous. Mo supported a secondary, or ille gitimate, wife, in idolatrous Shccbem, the mother of Abimoloch, who, wo may presume, was educated alter his motboi’t) way o'f thinking, to honor Baal and to hate Jehovah.., As a young' man, Ablmeloch sooma to havo lived aUonjfttoly at OpliraU and at Shcchom, and to havo been of a jealous, selfish, cruel disposi tion. At tho timo of which wo write, bis father and-mother are dead, and the biothora are from 25, to 35 years of ago. Abimoloch haa not for gotten thecrown -which hia father-rojeotod, and, na‘ tho ono least worthy of it/'ia'moat auxioua to'wear U.' Mark the parallels thus far. Alcohol is of : re spectable origin, ot-loabt : on his father’s side, — from tho grata of which, wo malco our broad, but, for all that, ' has no real right to exist.- Thoroughly unworthy, Alcohol scoka to rule, and to rule for selfish, purposes. With Alcohol ad with’Abimoloch, wo may bo stiro that that which has no right to exist can hover attain to tho highest prouporlty ; nay, that this existence will carry a ourao with it from first to last. Tho desire for a prominence for which his talents do not fit • him, leads Abimoloch into a conuplracy. Our first view, of him as a young man Is as a cpuspiratdr against his owu kin. Ho has as little principle as Catalina; and is far moro oruol. lie communes with tho houso of his mother’s father. Ho appeals to anti-' lernelitish prejudices. Ho makes friends with those who hate Abraham aud tho traditions of Abraham. Ho excites their fears, asking them which is bettor, that all tho sons'of Gideon should reign, or that ono should roiga, and that one their one “ bone and flesh.” As a matter of fact, the fears ho excites’ are groundless; tho sons of Gidoon havo no intention of trying to rule. They arc content to abide by their father’s de cision, and to romain citizens of a State in which Jehovah is King. Hut Abimoloch assumes that they aro plotters against tho liberties of Sho ehorn, aud the towns la league with BUochom. His ruso succeeds. His mother's brethren plead his cause, secure him influence and money, and, with the money, ho hires "vain and light per sons,”—tho loafers of our saloons, —who, hav ing nothing to do, are moro thou ready to bo led ' by tho first man who will minister to their appe tite; They go with him to Ophvah; help him to kill, at ono blow, tho throo scoro and ton sons of his dead father. It is the first manifestation of that bloodthirsty spirit which, in; Eastern coun tries, for moro than forty centuries has sought tho lives of all* those whoso interests could, in any possible way, clash with tbo inter ests of tho would-be sovovoroign. Abimoloch may havo made a feast ; a religious foost, no doubt. At a word, bis unsuspecting brethren are offered in sacrifice . upon the altar of stouo which they may havo helped to roar. Jotham alone, tho youngest, escapes. Thus far all is woll. The obstacles In tho path to the crown are removed. Tho ceremonies of the coronation are hurried .forward. “By tho plain of tbo pillar that was in Shoehorn,” the' anointing takes placo. Battho men of Shcchom do not know what thoy havo done. They do not boo that their liberties bavo boon ip no danger from Qidoou’s legitimate sous ; that ho who has como among thorn, their relative only by a left handed mnniago, Is tho real usurper, tho roal tyrant. Thoy ao not soe that by tboirown act thoy havo bortorod away their privileges, and lout their influence to soouro their own ruin. Is It not bo with Alcohol? Does bo not plead against morals, and law, tbo Sabbath, ana re ligion ? la bo not full of biuta of tyranny, aud loss of iudlTidual libortlos ? Docs ho not unite “tho lewd follows of tho baser sort," and, paid with tbo money of tho moro respectable, load them out to murdor those who have tbo right to rulo? Is it not in this way that bo gets bis power, bis crown as King; aud, wbon King, is bo not tbo worst King that over eat on a throne? They who give him this authority little know at tbo time what they avo doing, no moro than did tho Bhoohomitos who crowned the adventurer Ahimoloch, and for no other reason than his ghbnosß of tongue, his lack of principle, and his accidental birth among them. They were seltlHh, uo doubt. They desired to keep tho otlicos iu thoir own bauds. They behoved iu tho principle of later-day polities, “To the victors belong tbo spoils." If Abimolooh bo King, they wilt bo pro moted, Shoehorn will botbe Capital city; oth ers will envy their good fortune. It la a glorious day's work wbiob they have dpno, Their shouts of Joy All tbo air. There is one who sees the consequences of the aot i one who baa boon an interested spectator TEMPERANCE.

CHICAGO, MONDAY, APRIL 6, 1874. of tbo doings: ono who can koop olionoo no longer, who, talcing his stand upon the spur of iho mountain that overlooks the town. Bings out, orchauls out in the well-known Arab manner, and in tho clear, loud Arab voice, a prophecy of ruin that must have startled alike tho new-made being, and tho fawning subject: Hearken unto mo, ye men of Shcchem, that God inny hearken unto yon. Tbo trees wont forth on an lima to anoint a King over thorn; and thoy sold unto tho olive-tree: Reign Hum over ns. But Iho oUvo-tteo saUl unto them : Should I leave my fatness whore with by mo thoy honor God and roan, and no to bo promoted over tho trees 7 And the trees said to tbo fig-tree: Como than and rolgnovcrus. But the fig-lroo said unto them: Should 1 forsake my sweetness, and my good fruit, and go to be promoted over tho trees 7 Then said the trees unto tho vino;' Como thou and reign over us. And the viue said unto them t Should I leave mine which chcoreth Ood and man, and go to bo promoted over the trees? Then saldsll the trees unto the bram ble : Gome thou and reign over us. And tho bramble said unto the trees: If fntrulh you anoint mo being over you, then come and put your trust lu my shadow; aud If not, lot fire come out of the bramble and devour the cedars of Lebanon. Now, therefore, If yo have done verily and sincerely In that yo have made Ahlmeloch King, and . If ye have dealt well with Jcrubbaal and his house, and have done unto him according to tho deserving of .his hands: For my father fought for yon, and adven tured hie life far, and delivered you out of tho hand of Mldlan: And yo are risen up against myftthor’a house this day, and have slain Ufa sons, tbreoscoroand ton persons, upon ono stone, and have made Ablmo loch, tho sou of his mold-servant, King .over the men of Bhouhom, because bo is your brother; if yo then havo dealt truly and sincerely with Jcrubbaal and with his house this day, then rejoice yo in Ablmolcoh, and lot him also rejoice In you: Built not. lot fixe come out of Ablracloch and devour tho men of Bhcchora and tho bouse of Millo; and lot fire come out of the men of Bbechcm and from tho house of, MiUo, and devour Ablmcloch, It la tho voice of doom. It is the handwrit ing ou tho wall, which even at tho boginuiug do olaros that tho tyrant’s days aro numbered. Thoro could ho no difficulty In understanding this simple parable. The olive-tree, tho fig tree. tho yine. the source of all tho region's wealth, who fill offices too Important to admit of their leaving. thorn ovou for a throne, are Oidoou and Gideon’s boob, who have refused to rulo ovor laraol, while the worthless bramble, which Is so ready to rulo, and to rain in its rule, is tho base-born, low-minded, deceitful Ablm elooh. Tho parable of Jolbam is a prophecy, and the prophecy is a curse. A curse alike on people and being. Will it ho fulfilled ? Time will toll. ; Jotbam has gone, has fled for safety. His words must be proved true boforo wo may ven ture to abide In or near Shecbem. So it is with Alcohol.' Ho is orownodwiih great rejoicings, and, as the result of the most astonishing combinations, bo is entrusted with tho govomraopt of viilogo, city, State and na tion. -Ho lms persuaded us that it is bettor that hoshould roigo—bo, our “ bone and flesh,** tho innocent medicinal quality in tho wheat from which comes our stau of life—than the honor* ablo well-bred sons of tho deliverer of our na tion. So wo put tho powor into bis hands, and. ore tho work is done, wo hoar behind us. and abovo us, out of tho clear Bky, tho voico of warning, and of woo. “It bitoth llko a serpent.. It stingeth like an adder.” Bat lot us follow the reign of Abimolooh. Ho has Boourod the crown, tho ond of all his hopes. What uso will ho make of it? -Jothara boa given him his frame. “ bramblo-Kmg.” Will that disgraceful title stick to him, and dosonbo his administration ? • For throe years tho conspirator enjoys his powor. At the end of that time his tyranny ex cites opposition.' Tho men of Sheohom seek to bo ild of' him. They sot liors-in-wait for him In the mountains. Goal, son of Ebod, bolder than tho rest, heads tho plot against him. He has ft strong following,—a bravo, outspoken following. At a feast they curse Abimolooh openly, and ask “Who is Abimoleoh, and who is Sheohom, that we should servo bira ? Is not ho tho sou of Jo rubbaal ? and Zebul his officer ? Servo the men of Hamor, tho father of Sheohom: for why should wo servo him?” And as tbo loader in thoir counsels, Gaal adds, “Would to God this people wore under my baud I thou would -I • re move Ablmolccb.”' And■ tbo boldness'passes' into a challenge, • “Increase* thy army and come out.” ■ It is a serious state of things.. Abimoleoh can not safely remain in Shecbem. Ho, therefore, holds his Court in ono of the lessor cities of tho longue,- and trusts Zebul, his officer, to adminis ter affaire in tbo place of danger. The rebel is caught by a rebel. Through pretense of friend ship Zebul lends Gant along, stop by step, till tho soldiers of Abimolooh arise and make short work with his aspirations for tho throne. But tbo rebellion has begun. Abimolooh is unpopu lar. His officers aro unpopular, and though Qanl has fled, and bis followers aro wounded and slain, and the city by -public act banishes Goal for cowardice, popular sympathy is not with -the King.’ The very next day the Shochomltos sesm to have gone out to Gael with tho purpose of imakipg'ono more effort to regain their liber ties. Abimolooh hears of.lt, gathers his mon, • follows tbo rebels, strikes tlionv’front, ronr, and flank—annihilates • them. * But, while fighting outside' tbo - wails, rebellion -rages within the walls. Zebul is overpowered. The whole town is in arms. There Is but one avenue open. Ablmolooh.at tnqks the city, contends against ft a whole day, carries it at last by assault, slays the people therein, breaks down tho walls, burns down the ‘houses with fire, sows with-salt the ground ou which they stood. A'fow escape—they that are in tbo town of Bhochem—and take refuge “in the hold of the house of God Borith,” i. 0., in the strong fort of Baal. But no asylum is'sa bred to Ablmeleoh. Ho hastens to a neighbor ing hill,- outs down a bough from a tree, puts it upon his shoulder, commands his follow ers to do the same, loads them to tbo door of tho fortress.'sots those boughs ou lire, nud calmly awaits the suffocation of tbo inmates. A thou sand perish. -The prompt, decisive, .vigorous' measures of Abimoloch save him. True, ho. has put to death half his subjects; has destroyed. • what should bavo * boon bis capitaldty, has made his aforetime friends his bitter enemies. But no matter,, tho lire kindlor, tlio bramblo-King, still wears his crown. Shall we stop to point out tho parallels? If the slaves of Alcohol rise against him, are they not powerless ? Do they. not often lose their property and thoir lives in tho. attempt to got rid of him ? Is.not every widespread revofu tiou'agaiust his authority attended with fearful disaster?* And in this disaster, are not those who gave thoir votes for him os being sure to be involved? And yet his sway is dreadful. It cannot bo, endured. Men ami women aro unit ing against him, and risking tbelr lives to bring about his overthrow. How much bettor never to have entrusted him with power! But, as in tho cose of Abimoloch, tho reflection comes too late. • Ahimolcob’s victories make him reckless. In his anxiety to crush out tho last vestige of re bellion, ho marches to Thobez, encamps against ft, takes it. There is a strong tower here into which all the men and women fly for safety, and cacry thoir weapons of defense with them. The band within aro tho “ forlorn hope.” Abimolooh looks for an easy victory. He has had every thing his own way from the flrtft. Ho has gotten rid of tho rightful heirs of tho throne. He has nut down rebellion after rebellion, and in a way to make his subjects fool the cost of rebellion. Ho has shown Baal that oven his sacred asylum affords no protection to (hose who throw off thoir allegiance to thoir King. Ho will make short work of tho few who bavo laid hold upon 1 the strong towor in Thobez. Ho remembers the success at tho fort of Baal, at Scheohom, and draws near to apply tho torch. But there is a power which Abimoloch has not recognized, au eye which has not lost sight of him oven from tho day of bis birth; au agency which has stirred up this rebellion against him Id order that his true nature may bo Known, and that in tho attempt to crush out the rebellion ho .himself may be crushed out, and tho bitter memory of his worthless rulo remain a lesson of wisdom forever. 11 Ood sent an evil spirit between Ablmolooh and tho men of Bheohem, and tho men of BU6- chom dealt treacherously with Ablmolooh.'* Godin sovereign after all. His plans are develop ing oven in Baal’s city. Ablmolooh, the usurper aud assassin, is in his hands, and shall work out His purpose. Jotham's parable has come true in part. “ Fire has come out of Abimolooli and devoured the men of Bheohem and • tho men of Millo." The bramble bush cannot Uy aside Us nature, or avoid doing that for which it was designed. It has kindled a llro which has burnt up two cities already, and which threatens evoty city in the league. To prove tho predictions completely true, it only needs that the llro which has boon kindled consume tho klndlnr. Aud so heartily do we despise him, that wo shall bo glad to see him burn. But will ho fall? Every stop ho has taken has strengthened his power. Every effort against him has failed. Even Israel, in part, has submitted to his authority, and is con cluding that it Is bolter to submit altogether. Alas, for tbo paralysis of tho public heart! Ablmolooh applies the torch to tho tower. Thoy that have taken refuge In It should perish. They havo lifted up thoir hands against his rule, and shall miserably dio. There is a mightier, a wiser, » more skillful thou Abimolooh, one who can use tbo weakest of all weak things of this world agains him, and this, too, at tho moment of, his greatest strength. Far up In tho towor is ono who has suffered from his tyranny, ono whoso friends havo fallen fighting against him, ono whoso highest ambition will bo gratified by putting an cud to his Jlfo. Tho weapon ohosou la tho simplest, a piece of a broken mill-stone. It has boon carried up Into tho towor for tho purpose to which it is to bo devoted. It is in tbo hands of a woman ; wo know not her name, orhorxank, but her work has boon on record for more than 8,000 yoars. “A certain woman cast a piece of mill-stone upon Abimolooh’s bond, and all to break bla skull.” It was not a careless throw. Tho stono was well aimed, and no doubt followed by a prayer, and what swords and Javolins, and battering-rams, and charges of brave men had failed to do a weak, unknown woman succeeds in doing. Tho stono hit tho usurper on his hood and broke Ids skull, and broke it so completely that life was despaired of, for this is tbo foroo of tho words, Ail to break,” 1. 0., thoroughly, entirely broke. And so it came to pass again that tboy who thirst for blood havo tbolr own mood to drink. M They who tako the sword perish with tho sword.” Tho methods which proud, solilsh, unprincipled men choose to follow servo to porpoluato their own infamy. Xot tbo weak are obosoo to confound - tbo mighty. Abimolooh has reached tho limit of bla miserable career. That limit a woman Ims sot. Oh, tho disgrace thus to dio, and so ho hastily calls to bis armor-hoaror, 11 Draw thy sword aud elay mo, that men may not say of mo, A woman slow him. And bis aimor-boarer thrust him through, and ho died.” But it made . no difference. More than 200 roars afterwards it was. a proverb in Israel, “ Who smote Abimo lech, tho son of Jembboaboih ? Did not a woman oast a piece of a mill-stone upon him from a wail, that ho died in Thoboz ?” So it is always,—wicked men are very sensitive about their honor, about tbo place they shall fill in history. They tako disgrace very hard ; are un willing to fall by the band of an inferior. But God’s Justice writes “Ichobod” on their repu tation, prints tho truth about thorn, and bids tbo winds boar it to the four quarters of tho world. . la tho crusade now waging, in woman’s name and nndor woman’s direction,’who shall utter a word of rebuke if the tyrant got his death-blow from a woman’s hand ? ■.> It is quite too muoh to liopo that Alcohol, aa King, is now to dio. Bat ho has wrought min enough,-has cost the aaiion'lives and treasure enough, to warrant tho most rigorous measures against him. That bo will die hard there Is no doubt. That ho will bum and kill to save him self is only too evident. Bat die ho ought, and meat, and will. For ho is Ohrisl’B enemy, and Olirist shall conquer. About tho present temporanco-rovival, thoro is only this to say: It stands by itself, peculiar In its origin, its spirit, its method, and Its ap parent success. Thoro is nothing in history with which to compare it. If God is in it, tho revival will spread ovor tho land ; if it bo of impulse and lovo of notoriety, it will soon waste its force. The pro moters of this revival soem to bo ootiiatod by moral motives. - They are socking to benefit society, to restrain crime, to shut off the , sources of orimo, to dry up tho fountains of crime. The weapons of their warfare aro not carnal but spiritual, end mightily to tho pulling down of tho strongholds of sin. They appeal to conscience, to men's inborn senso of right, and cannot fall in at least strengthening the feeling already widely prevalent that Alcohol has no right to exist. Liko tho revolution against Abimolooh. this last revolution has its riso in a : senso of per sonal wrong. That part of Ohio whore tho revolt 'has boon most nearly universal ooco belonged to Virginia, ana ' was largely settled by emigrants from - Virginia. Those settlors came with tno intem perate * habits 'of -the • cavaliers. . Steadily tho old families have boon dying oat, poisoned by Alcohol. Tho Quaker women of Huntingdon and Washington have shown the greatest cour age In this uprising,—not so much because suffer ing, from poverty and personal abuse, as from mortification and sorrow- over-the premature death-of thoir sons and tiiftii or a disgraceful-tyrannical appetite, Wait-' iusfy6ors for help that gave no sighs of coming, they wont forward themselves, and have brought abput a change in the public .sentiment of the region which. scorns- miraculous. •. Those women BTo'Christion women. .They aro not fanatics, if they seem so. Thoir methods may bo orudo, mlaapplicable to large cities. Ordinarily it can not bo wise to pray, and sing on. tho streets, and in . saloons, .interrupting a business, which, however, moan, .is carried on under sanction . of . law. .But It .is wise, to - pray somowhoro, and to . . lift of a united, protest against dmukonuoss asj a, sin. Tho way to deal with tho evil is, to create a publlo sontimont that shall Croat drunkenness as a venal -offence against, society.
