God in Bound.
Iht voice ot my hsloved.-Cand'ou : 8.
Every gound we bear is, in a certain
sense, the voice of God. It is the waving
of His band that produces the undula
tions of tbe air; it is this that produces
the tympanum, that delicate scructure of
the omnipotent artificer, ana this a cam
communicates motion to -the" auditory
nerve, a motion so sliclit that a micro
scope could not detect it, and yet suseep-
tible in all its minuteness, of millions of
variations: this aeain produces an im
pression. on the brain,' that soft and
pulpy mass of seemingly insensate-mat
ter, through vhtch a ' Knile may be run
without giving pain, and which yet re
sponds with the quickness of thought,
and with the accuracy of machinery, to
the delicate impression of the nerves of
sense: and this semi-organic aud jelly
like mass, in a manner utterly inconceiv
able to us, by certain mechanical change i
in iu own form, communicates with the
joul, and, produces thought and feeling
in tne invisible and immaculate part ot
man.' The brain being in certain forms
or shapes, the soul heart a magnificent
anthem; when it is in certain other
shapes the soul hears the screeching of
an owl or tbe filing of a saw; and yet
the difference in these shapes is probably
so small as to be wholly invisible, even
if the action of the brain was exposed to
microscopic scrutiny. What iafinite
wisdom and skill was that which created
ns with these subjective susceptibilities,
and adjusted to them the varied condi
tions of the outer world! What a cn
ception it was in the first, to put xpirit
and matter en rappnrt ! To whom but
the Almighty would such a concep
tion ever have occurred ! The very ideal,
without execution, is nothing less than
divine, but when we realize that execu
tion in the co-operation of soul and body
in our own persons, we can but feel that
God is all and in all.
Every sound we hear is the result of
a cause put in operation ana Kept in
operation, and -endowed with the power
of producing a certain ellect, and no
other, by an ever present and all-controlling
God. The air undulates no
more nor less than tie womu nave it; i
the tympanum vibrates not otherwise
than as He wills; tbe nerve, in its mi
nutest quiver, moves only as He moves
it; the brain is impressed not otherwise
than as He impresses it; the thought and
feeling which result are none other than
such as He produces; in other words.
our hearing is the result of divine action ;
every sound is heard only as the result
of a divine contrivance that we shall
bear; and consequently in each act of
bearing we are operated upon by that
divine nower. The power and the pres
ence of God being thus inseparable from
each act ot hearing, poetry, philosophy
and religion, each suggest that every
sonnd we hear is, in a certain sense at
least,.the voice of God.
God is our father and our friend, our
creator, preserver, benefactor and savior.
Whom have we in heaven but him what
Is there upon earth that we should desire
besides Him ? He is the author of life
and the fountain of all fullnes, the God
of all comfort, the sonrce of all joy. He
is not an abstraction nor an impersonal
principle, but a living, being, a person
with thoughts and feelings just like ours,
except that they are infinite in purity
and power; Ue is the God whose fore
sight and ever active benevolence supply
our wants; He is the God and father of
our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Oh,
bow supremely lovely, how infinitely ex
cellent)
We are in constant communication with
Him. In every waking moment we hear
His voice. The zephyr that dallies with
the foliage is His whisper; the blast of
the hurricane is His louder voice ; the
thnnder is His speech ; the brook mur
murs onlv as lie would hare it ; the noise
of the mountain torrent is only His ut
terance the air ; and.the sea would lie for
ever in the stillness of death if not put in
commotion by the ever present God, and
the roar of the ocean, is, therefore, but
one of His tokens; the twittering of the
wallow is only another of His manifes
tations ; the spKirnw learn sits single song
from Him and performs its little air only
as His instrument; the mocking bird,
with its grotesque and original combina
tions, defying tbe rules of art, is only
a mediam of communicating divine mu
sic; the lowing of the kine, the hnm of
the bee oa its harried flight, and all the
myriad voices of animated nature are
but the outspeaking! of Him who made
and keeps Ilia creatures animate: the
tinkling of the lonely bell in the ferest
reminds us that we are not alone, for God
is there; without Him we should be deaf
and nature dumb; in the solemn tones
from the steeple that summon ui to the
gates of Zion, it is God who cans as
there; the deep music of the organ is
Uii ; it is liis voice that we hear in the
tongs of the saints; it is He who glad
dens as by the prattle of the little ones
at borne; the kindly tones of friendship
are his tones ; the very ticking of the
clock is His outspoken testimony of the
i
MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 12, 1866.
lnvsriableness of His laws ; the ringing
of the anvil, and of the artizan's hammer
and chisel, and all the founds of indus
try, are vecal deliverances of natural
causes, of which causes the first il God.
The earth lies baptized in the air, and
the air is filled with sounds from pole to
pole, and every sound is an enunciation
of the presence of (iod.
That most precious and lovely Being.
while still the most adorable and glorious.
ij thus in perpetual audible communica
tion with His people. O, Thou whom my
soul loveth, is it possible that every
sound I hear is trom Thee I I by voice
is sweet even when it speaks in thunder.
for it is the voice of my beloved. If I
stand upon some storm-worn crag and
witness the. furious tempest, and the
terrific bursts that make the very moun
tains tremble, I still rejoice, for if they
tremble it is only at the presence of the
Lord, at the presence of the Loid of the
whole earth, and the convulsing elements
are but uttering the voice of my beloved
I stand on ocean side and love to sar,
" O Lord, Thou art my beloved I" when
in its roar I bear tbe voice of my beloved.
If, in some lonely glen I lay me down on
mossy bank,' and I am soothed to
sleep by the uuder-tones of nature. I am
happy with my departing consciousness
that the voice of my beloved is the lullaby
that brings my repose, w ben 1 awake,
I awake with joy, because it is the voice
of my beloved that has ended my slum
ber. As I walk the lawn or the wood
and bear tbe sighing of the gale, or the
wild music of the winged orchestra, my
heart bounds with gladness, for in all
these I hear the voice' of my beloved.
the euphonies of nature, if sweet in
themselves, are sweeter Mill when we re
member that these are but the forms in
which God addresses us. The gentle
tones of the dear ones at home, full of
sympathy and love, axd the ringing
laugh of my little ones are delightful to
hear, but all the more so, when f remem
ber that their voices are but the voice of
my beloved, and that He whoa my son)
loveth, and who is my chief joy, speaks
to me through them.
It is perpetual pain to be absent from
those we!ove. A message, even if it be
so long coming, brings sweet alleviation
of chronic grief; but to hear the voice
brings rapture. Our God is not a God
a fur off; He is very nigh; He is in
speaking distance; He speaks to us in
every sound we hear the low breath of
a sleeping babe is His whisper ef love.
The blast of winter, if it tells us of the
sufferings of the homeless, tells us, also,
of the distinguishing goodness that pro
vides us with Shelter and hre. ' If we be
exposed to its fury we still hear, in its
wild shriek or hollow moan, the voice of
Hun who is our beloved, and who will be
sure to make all things work together for
good to.them that love Him. The sounds
that terrify others, but remind us that
we are in the bands of God, tbe very
being whom of all others we cherish and
love and adore, in whom we know we can
confide, and who we know loves us as
much more than we love Him, as His
infinite capacity for loving is greater
than ours. Thus hearing Him in all that
we hear, every sound becomes melodious
and the harshest jarring of discords is
softened and turned into Imruiotiy. Ever
thus while awake, we can hold1 converse
with God; and it is sweet to remember,
that He who made the ear, Himself can
hear. And that the voice of prayer and
praise is fur more delightful to Him than
His many-toned voices are to us ; that
while we, from our imperfection, fail to
observe many of His tokens, He, in His
omniscience, never loses tbe slightest
accent of ours; that if, in every sound
we hear, our hearts exclaim, " The voice
of my beloved, He, too, when he hears
the low voice in the closet, or the joyous
exultations of the sanctuary,- says, with
condescending benignity, " The voice of
mv beloved," and that He says of each
one of His saints, as every saint says of
llim, my beloved is mine and 1 am
His." Cant, ii: 1C Christian Index.
LAST HOURS OF BT01TEWALL JACKSON.
Narrative by His Medical Attendant.
Dr. Hunter McQuire has furnished the
Richmond Medical Journal with a de
tailed account of the last hours of Stone
wall Jackson. It is especially interest
ing as the writer was Jackson s medical
attendant
He says that after the fatal wound was
received, and Jackson was being sup
ported from the field, he pushed aside
the men who were holding him up,
stretched himself to hi full hight, and
cried feebly, yet distinctly enough to be
heard above the din of battle, " Gen.
Pender, you must hold on to the field;
you must bold out to the last" This was
his final order upon the field. He was
then placed upon a litter and taken to
the W ilderness Tavern, which was used
as a hospital.
Chloroform was then administered,
and as be began to feel its effects, and its
relief to the pain he was suffering, he
exclaimed, "What an .infinite blessing,"
and continued to repeat tbe word " bless
ing" until he became insensible. The
round ball (such as is used for a smooth
bore Springfield musket) which had
lodged under the skin upon' the back of
his right hand, was extracted first. It
had entered the palm, about the middle
of the hand, and fractured two of the
bones. Tbe left arm was then amputa
ted, about two inches below the shoulder,
very rapidly, and with slight loss of
blood, the ordinary circular operation
having been made. There were two
wounds ia this arm, the first and most
serious was about three inches below the
shoulder joint, the .ball dividing the
main artery and fracturing the bone.
Tbe second was several inches in length,
a ball having entered the outside of the
forearm, an inch below the elbow, came
oat npon the opposite sid, just above the
wrist . i
Througbout the whole of the operation,
and until all dressings were applied, he
continued insensible. Two or three
slight wounds of tbe skin of his face re
ceived from the branches of trees when
bis horse dashed through the woods, were
dressed aimplr with isinglass plaster.
During that day and the two or three
next following, he seemed to be doing
well, but on Thursday a change occurred,
and pleuro-pneumonia of the right side
followed. His wife and child were sent
for, bnt be began to sink. On Satnrday
he was still worse. We quote the closing
description verbatim : .
When hia child was brought to him he
played with it for some time, frequently
caressing it and calling it hit " little com
forter." At one time . he raited his
wounded hand above it head, and, closing
his eyes, was for tome momenta silently
engaged in prayer. He said to me, "I
tee, from the o amber of physicians, that
you think my condition dangerous; bnt, I
AQRI0W jj
LARGEST CITY CIHCILATIO.V.
I thank God. if it is His will, that I am
ready to go.1' ' Aboutdaylight on Sunday
morning, Mrs. Jackson informed him
that his condition was very doubtful, and
that it was better that he should be. pre
pared for the worst. He was silent for
a moment, and then said, "It will be
infinite gain to be translated to heaven
He advised his wife, in the event of his
death, to return to her father's house,
and added, "You have a kind and good
lather, but there is no one so kind and
good as your Heavenly Father."
He still expressed a hope of his recov
ery, but requested her if he should
die, to have him buried in Lexington,
in the Valley of Virginia. His exhaus
tion increased so rapidly that at 11
o'clock Mrs. Jackson knelt by his bed
and told him that ere the sun went down
he would be with bis Savior. He tp
plied, UD, no; you are Irightened, my
child; (loath is not so near; I may yet
get well." She fell over upon the bed,
weeping bitterly, and told him again
that tbe physicians said there was no
hope. After a moment's pause he
asked her to call mo. "Doctor, Anna
informed me that you have told her that
1 am to die to-day ; is it so f - When
be was answered, he turued his eyes to
ward the ceiling, and gazed for a moment
or two as it in intense thought, then
replied, " Very good ; very good ; it is
all right." lie then tried to comfort his
almost heart-broken wife, and told her
he had a good deal to say to her, but he
was too weak. Colonel Pendleton came
into tbe room about one o'clock, and he
asked him "who was preaching at head
quarters to-day ?" When told that the
whole army was praying for him, he re
plied. " Thank God they are very
kind." - He snid, "it is the Lord's day ;
my wish is fulfilled. I have always de
sired to die on Sunday."
His mind now began to fail and wan
der, and be frequently talked as if in
command upon the field, giving orders
in his old way; then the scene shifted, and
he was at the meets table in conversation
with members of his staff; now with his
wife and chisd; now at prayer with his
military family. Occasional intervals of
return of his mind would appear, and
during one of them I offered him some
brandy and water, but be declined it,
saying, "It will only delay my departure,
and do no good ; I want to preserve my
mind, if possible, to the last. About
half past one he was told that he had but
two hours to live, and he answered again,
feebly but firmly, "Very good, it is all
right" A few moments before he cried
out, in bis delirium, " Order A. P. Hill
to prepare for action I pass the infantry
to the front rapidly I tell Major Hawks '
then fttopped, leaving the sentence un
finished. Presently a smile of ineffable
sweetness spread itself over his pale face,
and he said quietly, and with an expres
sion as if of relief, " Let us cross over the
river and rest under the shade of the
trees," and then, without pain or the
least struggle, his spirit passed from earth
to the God who gave it
At a ball of the Duchess of Bojanos,
in Paris the other evening, the Princess
of SL Ella appeared as the . Press, in a
robe covered with the pages and titles of
several journals printed on satin.
