Inasmuch, therefore, mv dear brother, as you aro rosponeiblo lor my absence from church I feci that I cannot oinploy my leisure at home better than in inditiug a few thoughts suggested by tho perusal of your Fermnn. Of course what I have to sav is intended for no eve but your own, and I bog of you to destroy these pages as oon as you have read them lostthrv should fall into tho hands of seme Copperhead who might presorvo or misinterpct their meauing. Tho most pleasing and striking feature my dear brother, in your diseourso, is tho immense encouragement it holds out to loval sinners. No Uuivursalistovcr oponeil tho gate of Iloaveu wider or mado tho cise ol tho needful and righteous power of road thither smoother for tho general arbitrary arrest, without which free gov miblio than vou haao doDo for your nolit- eminent would be a nicro mockery a ioal brethren, among whom I am proud to be classed. Instead of tho old straight ami narrow path through whioh it was once vulgarly supposed the pilgrim must ncods strugglu and scramble to reach tho Heovouly height, you have substituted an Tranent, macadamized .ccolesiastioal turn niko. broad enough to admit of tho pas. a"o of vehicles of all descriptions, and traded so dexterously as to leavo the tray- a aler unconscious that ho is making any ascent at all. Or, to drop metaphor, ( which, by the way, I abominato as a vto- iouB kind of writiDg) I am rejoioed to seo thatyouhavo thrown aaido the narrow and malignant orthodoxy onco currently imputed to you, nnd adopted a oreed wor- tlitr nf th,! beral and adranocd bbo in "V vliinli wu live. Thero aro nersOn. as vou arc possibly aware, doar brother, who read tho New Tcstaraont in a.spirit so dark,and put up- on it a construction nofalso and perverted,- n. hold that onW thniic who believe baptism with Him and partako of Hi SaoraniouU-nfao are membera of III ohurch and followers in His footitops oan obtain ctornal life. Out if anything was necped to domonstrato ihc falsehood of suoh theology us this, it is, ns I gather ed from your discourse, tho fact that it makes no room among tho saints for oar lato beloved President. If the gloomy readings of the fanatic are to bo beliovcd God is no rcspeoi of persons, andomin ont party services aro not credited in tho awful acoount as oflsots to ncgloct of His ordi nances and breaobes of His commands. Itiasmuoh, thorcforc, as our lato chief was never baptized, nover mado any profession of faith in Christ, ncyor partook of His Sacraments, or embraced what is callod l,theplooof salvation," and raroly at tentlod church, if wo adopt tho fiendish doctrines of tho bigot wo must boliove lht ho shall bo judged hy tho same gos pel standard as tho obscuro Copperhead who has shown tho same unmindfulnoss ot tho ordinaueos of religion. How dt lighted'I am, doar brother, to see that you reject with scorn such indecent blasphomy, and along with it tho obseleto docttincsof Peter and Paul and James and Luther and Melancthoa and Jeremy Taylor and tho other rudo spirits of long-gono and barbarous ages. Aud here let me own that hitherto tho exercise of loyalty and tho enjoyment 01 its earthly rewards has been marred, in ray cao,by oortain doubts oud misgivings abont tho future, A widespread .feeling of joy exists among the Copperheads, based on tho tru?t that offiences and con tracts in this world arc by no moans her ald, and assurances of harps and crown in ibu next. Yos, I oonfuss,dear brother, that I have myself had reasons of d despondency while pondering this subjpot. But your blonscd word Iiavo soothed my doubting soul and uleared away the 01m from my blinded oyos. I never felt such a cheering assurance of Heaven as in rcadiDg your most Catholio an'd liberal disooursc. Indeed, I feel a sort of beati fic exaltation to-day in view, of the pros poet ol a bli-sful immortality whioh you have opened up to mo, as with a wisDrd,s wand. If our dear departed brother's political services, as yon beautifully sug gest, aru sufficient to wipe out his MOB,will not tho like serviocs of humbler brethren of the party avail to obliterate thihs ? Have I nut faithfully servod my country as n collector of Internel Rcvenuo through the whole of our long war for liberty and should an untimely hot or thrust call me hence before tho exp ration of ray official luru, il I,ot !l blod 'bought that some reverend fiicnil like that dear brothcr,wil kindly n-oouut my asoonsion to tho man sions of tho blest, to a giping auditory, and explain the facts which iu my case, dippensed with the need of faith, baptism, and sacramental bread and wine ? Ah '. bow refreshed I feel and with what holy coiiGduncB and zeal will I rcsunio to uior- row my waeK daJ worK 01 00"eoting from the iniolont laborer and tho bloatod scmp- tress tho tribute thoy owe for negro eman cipation to "tho best government tlio. world ever saw,1' l snail icel, in me light ot your inspiring discourse, that every dol larso collected is indeed ''troasurod in Heaven." I shall henceforth discern tho "PIaD o "Ivalion" in my quarterly re- " and in evory t'rJ circular, to mansions m the skie. 1 lianHS, reverend and near urotuor, tor those words in season I am greatly plcasod to notice, dear brothor, the npplauso whioh you award to our benignant rulers for tho frequent exor- chaotio aggregation of individuals speak'iDg writing and doing just what ploascs thorn, answerable only to tho law, wHh its tardy and uncertain puniabmonts. The fact that as in your own ease, the government now and then inadvortantfy kidnapped a man of uodoubtod loyalty, and adjuetcd to his legs tho fottors intended for tho blatant -I ... . . oopporhead, lias not, l am rcjoioeu to sco, weakened your attaohmcnt to tlio Ocneu- I . . .

Thoro is something truly grand In tho conception of his conversion at such a time something in keeping with his ex alted position as tho head of this emanci pated nation. If ''ihoro is joy in Heaven over ono sinner who ropoutcih," fanoy tho intensified delight of tho celestial compa ny at tho conversion of our President on our national holiday at tho tpectaole of him sinking on his knees amid tho roar of cannon, tho waving of tho star-spangled banner, tho cherrings of the crowd, the rhctorioal hcllowings of a thousand orators tho explosions of pop-bottles, and tho orackiug of grouud nuts between the teeth of a million loyal littla boys. Yrou have a sense of tho sublime, dear brother, of which I hardly suspocted you a concep tion of dramatic effect rarely found outside of tho theatrical temples of sin. It occurred to mo, at first, as a possible objection to your plan, that, lift) being un certain, oven in tho caise of exalted officials our Chief Magistrate might unfortunate ly bo cutoff by casualty or discaso boloro tho day appointed for his regeneration. But a moment's rcfkolion assured me that while this sad calamity might doprivo tho country of a most agrconblo and striking religious spcctnclo on the day of its great festival, it could by no means jeopordizc the prospects of the Pretldnlin tbo world to come. HiB distinguished ecrvie.es to the came of freedom as Military Govern or ol Tennessee nnd olsowhero afford abun dant data from which I feel, dear brother, hat you could arrange his salvation on moat satisfactory basis. Whilo we will all look eagerly to the Fourth, therefore, in accordance with your suggestion, wo will feci in tho interval no nervous alarm about tho di.-tinguisbed oandidato for ropen tanoe. Ono more thought. Speakiug of the Copperheads and sympathizers, you eug gest that their only refuge to savo their cluldrea from infamy is to have their names changed, or to cmigrnto fo foreign lands, I concur with you in this kind sug gestion, and have read that portion of jour dii-courso to certain Copperhead neighbors of mine, who have been sorely puzzled to know what to do with the weight of infamy which is accumulating upon their back, and, as jou eloquently remark, is branded on their foreheads. Strauge to say, they leaped eagerly at your generous proposition. Two of them i mmediately begun to pack their trunks and expect lo Uke ship at Now York next woek. Ono of them has already sailed as a steerage passenger for Bremen. Others arc, as rapidly ns pnssiblo, inventing new names for themselves. Prom but ono have I received any insolenoo, nnd ho is a low fellow whoso hcaTt has been with tho Cop perheads from tho beginning. " Change my name I" said he, with impudont bra vado. "What shall 1 change it to! If I call myself Grcoly thoy might think that I wroto that poetry about ihe 'taunting lie' and the 'starry rag.' If I call myself Garrison they will swear that I was tho clian who denounced tho Constitution of tho United States as a covenant with Death and an agreement with Uoll. If I call myself Sumner I might bo mobbed for saying that tho man who obeyed tho Con stitution wos a dog. If I look tho tiamo of Wright, who kuows but that I should bo followed up as tho howling infidel who said that if Cod Almighty did net abolish slavery, Ilo was a very great scoundrel.

No Judas," he ooucludod 'If I have ta drop my old name and tako a now one, you hvve a d n'd poor assort- mcnt in the Abolition vocabulary to choose from."1 I need scarcely remark, rever end and dear brother, that I was only re strained by tho prominent musoulardovol opement of this profano wretch from knocking him down on the spot.

The Future. When wo look forward into the future, how littlo do wo seo, that assures us of length of life, or brighter prospcots. But all uncertain do wo tako tho step, as it wcro, in tho dark.

But hope, high hope, buoys us up to renew our journey, and thus we aro led on, step by step, through changes and trials, until tbo final change oomes, which unveils the great mystery of death! to our eyes. Could we forseo tho path we must tread, who could for a moment have the oourage to travel on 1 No heart would bo bravo enough to cueounter the trials wbioh beset them. But with our ignoraneo of the futuro, and Hope leading her Syren voice to win us onward, wo trust her in cnud liiro simplicity, and go on rejoicing, oftentimes at tho vorge of destruction. How wisely has it been ordained by the Fathers, that wc should be unoon'icious of our futuro life, as it would destroy all in tcrests of lifo in onr earthly existenoo ; we should remain tn apathetic indifferenco to existence and usefulness. But tho uncer tainty brings Hope, and Hope gives Li!o wbioh animates us to press onward, sur mounting obstacles, ovorcomieg pain and anguish, with tho consolation that tho fu ture will be brighter, and our life will yet bo clothed in flowers. Thus wo journey on. hoping for the best, trusting in God who has wisely hidden these things from us. The Dlyiij Alarmku.

Sherman Worsted. Whon General Shorman was in oommand at Benton Bar racks, St, Louis, ho was in tho habit of visiting every part of that institution, and makcing himself familiar with ovory thing lhat was conic: on. He woto an old brown coat and a stove, pipe bat, and was not generally recognized by tho minor officials or tho soldicje. Ono day whilo walking throuch tho grounds he met with a soldier who was un mercifully boating a mule. "Stop pounding that mule!" said tho General. "Git eout!" said tho eoldior in b lissful iirnoranoo to tho person whom ho was speaking. "I tell vou to stop!" reiterated the - - - Gonoral. "You mind your businoss, and I'll mind mine," replied tno.Boinier, ooBijnuwg nn flank movomontupon the mule. I tell you again to stop I ' said tho General. "Do you know wjjo i am l l am General Sherman." That's played out," said the,soh3ier 5 t'ovcry man who comes along boro with an old brown ooat and stovo pipo hat on claims to be General Sherman." It is prosumed that for onoe Goneral , Sherman considered himself outuankod. Mobbing a Woman In Iowa. For a few days, Iodianola bts boon tlio sccno or Amazonian warfare, A dis graceful mob, composed of women, has given the town a notorioty which its well disposed and orderly citizons must bo heartily ashamod of. It appears that a Mrs. Paterson, a widow lady, who has been undor tho doctor's care for twowooks was peouliarly offensive to tho exclusively loyal female portion of that town, for romo expressions of hostility to tho Ad ministratien prior to tho unfortunate doath of Mr. Lincoln. On tho rcoeipt of the news of tho diabolical assassination of ihe Prosidcnt, without giving the subjeot tho lca'st investigation, and bidding defi anoo to tho laws, a number of women, among them the wife of the Presiding El der of tho Methodist Church, viiitod tho houso of Mrs. Patterson and compellod her, an invalid, to leave her houso, and carry an emblem of mourning, which, wo understand, was a flag, and march around tho town. She protostcd that she had not uttered a word of exultation at the doath of the Prosident, and implored thorn to confront her with tho witness ; but her protesta tions were answored by tho insulting ro ply that she was lying. She assured them that she was unablo to walk the dis tance required, and if forced- to perform tho humiliating sorvioo thoy must oarry her. Her protestations of innocenoo, her widowhood, and even tho precarious oon dition of her bcalth,had no power to move thoir pity. Go sho must, and thay forced her out the houso.and dragged hor around tho streets to bo scoffed and jeered at? tearing her dress nearly off. Not confont with-inflicting this gross indignity upon the siok mother thoy attempted to com pel her little daughter, thirteen years of ogo to porform the samo service, and be cause eiho had spirit enough to resist tho outrago she was boaten and bruiied' until blood streamed from her noso and ber arms wero black and bluo. Tho above, we aro credibly informed, are faots. What lower depth of degradation can wo reach than tho existence and tbc en couragement of a public sentiment which transforms females, in the midst of sohools and ohurohes, and surrounded with what ought to be Cbristion influences, into the worst type of men! Do those women desire that their sons and daughters Bhould pat tern after them, and trample under foot tho laws of sooioty, humanity and God ? Such an exhibiliou of heartlcgsness and eontempt of law, humanity and Christian ity disgraoelul alike to tho town and tho parties engaged in it wo venture to say has not ooourred since tho mobs of Paris whioh originated tho bloody and disgrace ful French Revolution of 179S.
