THE NATIONAL 11EPUBLIOAN : MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 15, 18SG.
MOSES' SISTER AND OTHERS, aim influence op amis won tub BOYS IN THE HOME. Somo lllstorlo Instances of I'dllliful nnd AITccttonnta Cnro from Miriam In Modern Tlmon Ailvlco to Thoso Who Snuli nnd Othorwlso Ill-Trent Tliclr llrothcrs. HnooKM-N, N. Y., March 1 l.-ltov. T. I)o Witt Talmagc, I). 1),, preached to-ilay In tlio Brooklyn Tnbemaclo llio tonth of bis series of sermons on "Tlio MnrrlaRO Itlng," tlio subject being "Tho Bister's Inllucnco Upon Iter Brothers." Tlio pnstor first read nml expounded a chapter In Exodus on tho crossing of tho lied sea, and spoko of tho water on either sldo of tlio Israelites as "crystal palisades." Tho hymn sung was Tome, tlioit fount ot every Messing, Timo my heart to sing thy grace Tho toxt was Exodus II: 4 "And his sister stood afar oft to witness what would to dono to lilm." Dr. Talmago said ; l'rlucess Thcrmutls, daughter of Pharaoh, looking out throuch tho lattice of her bathing house, ou tho banks of tho Nile, saw a curious boat on tho rlrcr. It had neither oar nor hcltn, and they would havo been useless anyhow. Thcro was only ono passenger and that a baby boy. Hut tho Mayflower that brought tho Pilgrim fathers to America carried not so precious a load. Tho boat km mado ot tho broad leaves ot papyrus, tightened together by bitumen. Boats wcro sometimes mado ot that ma tcilal, as wo learn from I'llny and Herodo tus and Thcophrastus. "KIM all thollcbrow children born," had been l'haraoh's order. To savo her boy Jochebed, tho mother of llttlo Moses, had put him In that rmccr boat nnd launched him. Ills sister Miriam stood on tho bank watching that precious craft, Sho was far enough off not to draw attention to tho boat, but near enough to offer protection. Thcro sho stands ou tho bank. Miriam tho poetess. Miriam tho quick-witted, Miriam tho faithful, though very human, for In after tlmo sho becamo so mad with that very brother for marrying1 a woman sho did not like, that sho mado a great family row and was struck with leprosy. Miriam was a splendid sister, but had hor faults llko all tho rcBt of us. Ilow carefully sho watched tho boat containing her brother, A strong wind might unset It. Tho buffaloes often found thcro might, In a sudden plungo of thirst, sink It. Bomo ravenous water iowi inigui swoop anu pici; his eyes out with Iron beak. Somo croco dllo or hippopotamus crawling through tho rushes might cranch tlio babo. Mlrl.im watched and watched uutll l'rlucess Thcr mutls, a maiden on each sldo other holding palm leaves over her head to shcltcrher from tho sun, camo down and entered her bathing house. When from tho lattlco sho Raw that boat sho ordered It brought, and when the leaves wcro pulled back from tho faco of tho child and tho boy looked up ho cried aloud, for ho was hungry and frightened, and would not oven let tho princess toko him. Tho Infant would rather itoy hungry than to acknowledge any ono of tho court as mother. Now, Miriam, tho sister, Incognito, no ono suspecting her ro latlon to thu child, leaps from tho uaulc and rushes dowu and offers to get anursoto pacify tho child. Consent Is given, sho brings Jochebed, tho baby's mother, Incog nito, not suro of tho court knowing that sho was tho mother, and when Jochebed arrived tho child stopped crying, for Its fright was calmed and its hunger niipcasod. You may admlro Jochebed, tho mother, and nil tho ages may admlro Moses, but I clap my hands In npplauso at tho behavior of Miriam, tho faithful, brilliant, and strategic sister. "tlo home." somo ono mlcht havo said to Miriam. "Whyrisk yourself out thero alono on tho banks ot tho Nile, breathing tho miasma anu in danger 01 ucmg auaciiou oy wild beast or ruffian; go homo." No; Miriam, tho sister, most lovingly watched nnd bravely defended Moses, tho brother. Is ho worthy her caro nndcourago? Oh, yes; tho sixty conturlcs of tho world's his tory havo never had so much Involved In the arrival of any ship at any port as in tho lauding of that papyrus boat calked with bitumen. Its ono passenger was to bo a monarch In history. Lawyer, statesman, politician, legislator, organizer, conqueror, deliverer, llo had such remarkable beauty In childhood that Joscphus says when ho was carried along tho road pcoplo stopped to gazo at him, and workmen would loavo their work to admire him. When tho king playfully put his crown upon this boy ho throw It oil indignantly and put his foot on it. Tho king, fearing that this might bo a sign that tho child might yet tako down his crown, applied another test. According to tho Jewish legend tho king ordered two bowls to bo put beforo tho child, ono con taining rubles nnd tho other burning coals. And If ho took tho coals ho was to Iivo and if ho took tho rubles ho was to dlo. For EOino reason tho child took ono of tho coals and put It in his mouth, so that his Ufa was spared, although It burned thu tonguo till ho was Indistinct of utterance over after, Having como to manhood ho spread open tho palms of his hands In prayer, and tho Bed sea parted to let two million flvo hun dred thousand pcoplo escape. And bo put tho palms of his hands together lu prayer, and tho Ked sea closed ou a strangulated host. His llfo was unutterably grand; his burial must bo on the somo scale. Clod would let neither man nor saint nor archangel havo un thing to do with weaving for him a tbrouu or megine ior mm a grave, mo omnipotent God left Ills throuo In heaven ono day, and if tho question was asked, "Whither Is tho King of tho Unlvorso go ing!" tho answer was, "I am going down to lury Motes." And tho I.ord took this mightiest of men to tho top of a hill, and tho day was clear, and Moses ran his eyo over tho magnificent range, ot country. Here, the valley ot Esdraclon,whcrotho final bat tlo of all nations Is to bo fought, and yonder tho mountain llermon and Lebanon and (lerlzlm and hills of Judca, and tho vlllago of Bethlehem there, and tho city ot Jericho yonder, and tho vast stretch of landscape that almost took tho old law giver's breath away as ho looked at it. And then, without a pang, as I learned from tho statement that tho eye of Moses was uu dimmed and his natural forco unabated, (lod touched tho great lawgiver's oyes, aud they closed; and his lungs, and they ceased; anil his heart, and It stopped; and com manded, savlnir, "To tho skies, thou Im mortal splrftl" And then ono Utvlnohand was put against tho back of Moses and tho other hand against tho pulseless breast, nnd Uod laid him softly down on Mount Ncbo, nnd then tho lawgiver, lifted in tho Al mighty's arms, was carried to tho opening of a cavo and placed In a crypt, and ono stroke ot the Divine, hand smoothed tho features into nn everlasting calm, and a rock was rolled to tho door, and tho only obscriulcs at which (lod did all tho olllccs ot priest and undertaker and grave digger una mourner wcro ended. Oh, was not Miriam, tho sister ot Moses, doing n good thing, an Important thing, n glorious thing, when sho watched tho boat woven of river plants aud mado water tight with aspbaltum, carrying Its ono passe ngerV Did sho not put all tho ages of tlmo and of a coming eternity under obli gation when sho defended licr helpless brother from tho perils aquatic, reptilian, nnd ravenous? tho it was that brought Hint wonderful babo aud his mother to gether, so that ho was reared to bo tho ile llveier ot his nation, when otherwise, It saved at nil from tho rushes ot tho Nile, ho would havo been only ono moro ot tho Hod defjlng Hiaraohs, for l'rlucess Thcrmutlsof tho bathing house, would have inherited tho crown of Egypt, and as sho had no child of her own this adopted child would havo como to coronation, Had thero been 1.0 Miriam there would havo been uo Moses. What a garland for faithful sisterhood I l'or how many n lawgiver aud how many a hero and bow many a deliverer and how many n saint nro tho world aud tho church Indebted to a watchful, loving, faithful, godly sister? Como up out of tho farm houses; como up out ot tho Inconspicuous 1 cincs; como up from tho banks of tho Hudson, and tho l'cunbscot nnd tho Buvannuh and tho Mobile ami tho Mississippi aud all thu other Nilcs ot America and let us co you, tho Miriams who watched and pro tected tlio leaders In law and medlclno nnd merchandise and art aud agriculture and mechanics and religion! If I should ask all tkeco physicians and attorneys and incr thnnts and ministers of religion and suc cessful men ot all professions and trades wLnaro Indebted to un elder sister for good ff.Kurucii and perhaps for an education or i nprVrous stsit to riie, thoynvyuld.. rlso by tho hundreds. God knows how many of our Greek loxlcons and how much of our schooling was paid for by money that would othcrwlso have gono for tho replen ishing of n sister's wardrobe. Whtlo tho brother sailed oil for n resounding sphere tho sister watched him from tho banks of self-denial, Miriam was tho oldest of tho family. Moses and Aaron, her brothers, and younger. Oh, tho power of tho elder sister to help dccldo tho brother's character for usefulness and for heaven! Sho can keep off from her brotlicr inorooviisuian .Miriam could Imvo driven back watcrfoul or croco illlo from tho ark ot bulrushes. Tho older sister decides tho direction In which tho cradle boat shall sail. By gentleness, by good sense, by Chtlstlan principle, sho can turn It toward tho palace, not of n wicked Pharaoh, but of a holy God; and n brighter princess than Thcrmutls shall lift him out of peril, oven religion, whoso ways aro ways of pleasantness and all her paths aro pence Tho older sister, how much tho world owes licrl Horn Wlillo yet tho family was In limited circumstances, sho had to hold and lake caro of her younger brother. And If there Is anything that excites my sympathy It Is a little girl lugging nrountfn great fat child and getting her cars boxed becauso sho cannot keep him quiet. Hy tho tlmo sho gets to young womanhood sho Is palo and worn out, and her attractiveness has been sacri ficed on tho altar of sisterly fidelity, and tho Is consigned to celibacy ami society calls her an ungallant name, hut In heaven they call her Miriam. In most families tho two most undcslrablo places in tho record of births nro the first and tho last, tho first because sho Is worn out with tho cares ot a homo that cannot afford to biro help, and tho last becauso sho Is spoiled as a pet, Among tho grandest equipages that sweep through tho streets ot heaven will bo thoso occupied by sisters who sacrificed them selves for brothers. They will havo tho finest of tho Apocalyptic white horses, and many who on earth looked down upon them will havo to turn out to let them pass. Let sisters not bcgmdgo tho tlmo'and caro bestowed on n brother. It Is hard to be lieve that nny boy that you know so well as jour brother can ever turnout anything very useful. Well, ho may not bo a Moses. Thero Is only ono of that kind needed for six thousand scars. Hut I tell you what your brother will bo cither a blessing or acurso to society nnd u candidate for happiness or wretchedness, llo will, llko Moses, havo tho cholco between rubles and living coals, and your Inllucnco will havo much to do wiiumsuccisiou. jiomay not, uuo.uoses, be the deliverer ot a nation, but ho may, after your father and mother aro gone, ho tho deliverer ot a household. What thou sands of homes to-day aro piloted by broth ers I Thcro nro properties now well Invested and yielding Income for tho support of sis ters and younger brothers, becauso tho older orotucr rose to tuo icaiicrsnip irom tho day tho father laid down to die. Whatovcryou do for your brother will como back to you again. It jou set him an Ill-natured, cen sorious, unaccommodating example it will recoil upon you from his own irritated nnd despoiled nature. If you, by patlcnco with all bis Infirmities and by nobility of char acter, dwell with him, In tho fow years of your companionship, you will havo your counsels reflected back upon you somo day by his splendor of behavior In somo crisis wlicro ho would havo failed but for you. Don't snub him. Don't deprccfato his ability. Don't talk dlscouragfngly about his future Don't let Miriam get down oft tho bank of tho Nile aud wado out and up set tho ark of bulrushes. Don't tcasa him. Brothers and sisters do not consider It nny harm to tease. That spirit nbroad In tho family Is ono ot the meanest and mostdovll fell. There Is a teasing that Is pleasurable, and is only another form ot Innocent rail lery, but that which provokes and Irritates and makes tho eyo flush with auger Is to bo reprehended. It would bo less blameworthy to tako a bunch of thorns aud draw them acioss your sister's check, or to tako n knife aud draw its sharp edgo across your brother's hand till tho blood spurts, for that would domngo only tho body, but teasing Is tho thorn and knlfo scratching and lacerating tho disposition and tho soul. It Is tho curso ot lnnumcrablo households that tho brothers teaso tho sisters and tho sisters tho brothers. Sometimes It Is tho color of tho hair, or tho shapo ot tho feature, or an affair of tho heart. .Some times it lo by roroollua a saorot of by a sup gestlvo look, or a guffaw, or nu "ahem 1" Tease, ! Tcasa I Tcasa 1 For God's sako, quit It. Christ says: "Ho that hatcth his brother is a murderer." Now, when you, by teas ing, mako your brother or sister hate, you turn him or her into a murderer or mur deress. Don't let Jealousy over touch n sister's soul, as It so often docs, becauso her brother gets moro honor or moro means. Even Miriam, the hcrolno of tho toxt, was struck by that evil passion of Jealousy. Sho had possessed unlimited Inllucnco over Moses, nnd now ho marries, and not only so, but monies a black woman from Ethiopia, and Miriam Is so disgusted and outraged at Moses, first, becauso ho had married at nil, and next, becauso jbo had practiced mlsccg nation, that sho Is drawn into a frenzy and then begins to turn white, and gets whitens a corpse, and then whiter than a corpse. Her complexion Is llko chalk; tho fact Is, sho has tho Egyptian leprosy, And now tho brother whom sho bad defended on tho Nile comes to her rescue, in a prayer that brings her restoration. Let thcro bo no room In all your houso for Jealously cither to sit or stand. It is a leprous abomination. Your brother's success, 0 sisters, is your success. Ills victories will bo your victo ries. For, whllo Moses, tho brother, led tho vocal music after tho crossing of tho lied sen, Miriam, tho 'sister, with two glittering sucets oi nrass, upuitcu ami gmicnug in tho sun, led tho instrumental music, clap ping tho cymbals till tho last frighted neigh ot pursuing cavalry horso was smothered In tho wave, and tho last Egyp tian helmet went under. How strong It makes a family when all tho sisters and brothers stand together, and what an awful wreck when thoy disinte grate, quarreling about a father's will and making tho surrogate's ofllco horrlblo with tliclr wrangle. Better when your wcro llt tlo children In tho nursery that with your playhouso mallets you had accidentally killed each other lighting across your cradle, than that having como to tho ago ot maturity and having lu your veins and arteries tho blood ot tho samo father and mother, you fight each other across tho parcutal gravo lu tho cemetery. If vou onlv knew It. your intcrcsta aro identical, Of all tho families ot tho earth that over stood together perhnps tho most conspicuous Is tho family ot ltothschllds. As Slayer Anseltn Rothschild was about to dlo lu 1612, ho gathered bis children about him, Anseltn, Solomon, Nathan, Charles, and James, aud mado them piomlso that thoy would alwajB bo united on 'Change Obeying that Injunction thoy havo becu Iho mightiest commercial power on earth, and at tho raising or lowering of their scepter nations havo risen or fallen. That Illustrates how much, on a largo scalo nnd tor selfish purposes, a united family may achieve. But supposo that Instead ot u mognltudo of dollars as tho object, It bo doing good and making salutary Impres sion nnd raising this sunken world, how much moro ennobling I Sister, you do your part, nnd brother will do his part. If Milium will lovingly watch tho boat ou tho Nile, Moses will help her when leprous dis asters strike. When tho father nnd mother nro gouc, nnd they soon will be. if thoy havo not already mado exit, tho sisterly and fraternal bond will bo tho only ligament that will hold tho family together. How many rea sons for your deep und unfaltering affection for each other I Hocked In tho samo cradlo, bent over by tho samo motherly tenderness, tolled for by tho samo father's weary urni and aching brow, wlthcnr.unon Inhciflancu of all tho family secrets, and with tho names given you by parents who started you with tlio highest hopes for your happiness and prosperity, I charge jou bo lovlue nml kind nnd forgiving, if the sister see that Iho brother never wonts n sympathizer, tho brother villi no that tho sister never wants an escort. Oh, it tho sisters ot it household knew llnutigh what teirllllc aud damning tcmpullons their brother goes lu this city life they would hardly sleep nights lu tho anxiety for his salvation! Aud It you would ruuko a holy conspiracy of kind works and gentle attention and earnest prayers, Hint would savo his soul from ilenth aud hide a multitude of sins. But let tho sister dash oil In ouodlievtloii lu dlsclpleshlp ot tho world aud tho brother Ilea off In another direction In dissipation, and It will not bo long before they will meet again at tho Iron gate of despair, their nils Icied feet lu tho hot ashes of a cousumed lllellme, Alnsl that brothers and listers, though living together for years, very often do not know ench other, and thoy sue onlv the Imperfections aud nono of the i . i ,. den. llaucr,of the Husslju cuvalry, bail In tally wlfo waiAltrcd oil to thu army, and tho family supposed ho wnsdead. After ho falncd a fortuno ho encamped ono day In lusam, his natlvo place, and mado a ban quet, and among tho great militiamen who were to dlno ha invited n plain miller and his wlfo who lived near by, and who, af frighted, came, fearing somo harm would bo dono them. Tho miller and his wlto wcro placed on each sldo ot tho general at tho table Tho gcucral asked tho miller all about bis family, and tho miller said ho had two brothers nnd a sister. "No other brothers!" "My youugcr brother went oil Willi tho army many years ago and no doubt was long ago killed," Then tho general snldi "Soldiers, I am this man's younger brother, whom ho thought was dead." And how loud was Iho cheer, and how" warm was tho cmbraccl Brothers nnd sisters, you need as much of nn Introduction to each other as they did. You do not know each other. You think your brother Is grouty and cross and queer, and bo thinks you aro selfish and proud and unlovely, uoth wrong I That brother will bo a prlnco In somo woman's eyes, and that sister n queen In tho estima tion of somo man. That brother Is a mag nificent fellow, nnd that sister Is n morning In June. Como, let mo Introduco you: "Moses, this Is Miriam;" "Miriam, this Is Moses." Add 75 per cent, to your present appreciation ot cath other, and when you kiss good morning do not stick up your cold check, wet from tho recent washing, ns though you hated to touch each other's lips In ailcctlonoto caress. Let It havo all tho fondness and cordiality of a loving sister's kiss. Make yourself as agreeable and helpful to each other as possible, remembering that soon you part. Tho fow years of boyhood and girlhood will soon slip by, and you will go out to homes of your own, nnd Into tho batllo with tho world and amid over changing vicissitudes, and on paths crossed with graves and up slops hard to climb, and tin ouch shadowy ravines. But, Oh, my God and Saviour! may tho end ot tho Journey bo tho samo as tho start namely, at tho father's and mother's knee, If they Inherited tho klmrdom. Then, ns In hov hood and girlhood days, wo rushed In after tho day's absence to tell of exciting adven ture, and father and mother enjoyed tho recital as much as wo who mado It, so wo shall, on tho hillside of heaven, rehearse to them all tho scenes of our earthly expedi tion, aud they shall welcomo us homo ns wo sav: "Father and mother, wo havo como and brought our children with us." Tho old revival hymn described it with glorious rcrctltlou llrothcrs and sisters tt en In-Ill meet, brothers and sisters thcro will meet, llrotbcrs and sisters thcro will meet. Will meet to part no more 1 rend of a child In tho country who was detained at n neighbor's houso ou a stormy night by somo fascinating stories that wcro being told him. and then looked out nnd saw It was so dark ho did not darogohomo. Tho Incident Impressed mo tho moro bo causo In my childhood I had much tho samo experience Tho boy asked his comrades to go with him, but thoy dared not. Itgot later and later 7 o'clock, 8 o'clock, I) o'clock. " Oh I" ho said, "I wish I wcro homo 1" As ho opened tho door tho last tlmo a blinding flash of tho storm and a deafening roar overcame him. But after a whllo ho saw In tho dlstanco a lantern, and lol his brother was comlug to fetch him home, and tho lad stepped out, nnd with swift feet hastened on to his brother, who took him home, whero thoy wcro so glad to erect him, aud for n long tlmo supper had ccn waiting. So it may bo when tho night ot death comes and our earthly friends can not go with us, and wo daro not go alone May our Brother, our Elder Brother, our Friend closer than n brother, como out to meet us with tho light of tho promises, which shall bo n lantern to our feet, and then wo will go In to Join our loved ones walling for us supper all ready, tho mar rlngo supper ot tho Lamb I hkautv uNvi:u,i:i).

Tlio I'nllro llcny Tluit I'nnr 1'cnplo Aro ltnllrniidcd to 1'rlKotiHccord llvl doner. A letter published In a Sunday paper, signed Silas 1. Mason, turns out to bo base less. Mason charges that many persons Just arrived In iho city aro arrested at tho night lodging houso aud sent dowu as vagrants. Messrs. I'lumpslll aud Thomas Moore, who aro In chargo of tho placo dttr-' Ing tho absence of Supt. Klllot, stated last night that only four persons havo been arrested at that placo In many months, Every arrest mado thero Is noted under tho head of "remarks" on tho lodgers' book. Mason was registered thcro four nights, Jan. SI to 21. Inclusive Mr. Mnoro said that tho first night Mason camo thcro ho was so dirty that ho would not allow him to go up stairs. Ho was not arrested at tho night lodging house Ho was at Mr, Emery's ofllco Jan. S3, 11:15 o'clock p. tn., whero ho was arrested by Lieut, Arnold and Officer Brccn ou complaint of Mr. Emery. Tho officers woro telephoned for by Mr. Emery. Wm. U, l'arkhurst, an old man, who Mason claims was unjustly ar rested by Officer Brccn at tho night lodging house, was found to havo registered bis namo on tho lodgers' book, and Supt. Elliot wroto him down on tho hook as n "fraud," aud on his complaint Officer Breen arrosted him. Tho ufilccr arrested tho samo man onco beforo for being drunk and asleep ou tho grass in tho agricultural grounds. Tbo officer denies that ho sworo that l'arkhurst bed been a beggar about town. Charles Hooper, who Is also claimed by Mason to havo lecn unfairly dealt with, turns out to havo been properly treated. Lieut, lloto lcr said that Hooper was tho worst lioy lu tho neighborhood whero ho lives, and tho pcoplo complained blttcrlv of his acts. Tho lieutenant claimed that, as far as bo knew, tho boy was Justly punished. Tbo police say that Mason trumped up his complaints without reason, oilier than to creato sympathy for himself, and, whllo they frankly admit that mis takes arc made at times in tho arrest of un fortunates, In thocaso ot Mason and thoso ho mentioned tho nrrcsts were Justifiable aud for cause. Till: lOVHNANT'S NEW PASTOIl. Trlnl Sermons hy Iter. T. Iliinilln A l-'iivornlilo Impression Created Largo congregations wcro present yester day at tho morning and evening services of tlio Church of tho Covenant, N" street, near Eighteenth, llcv. T. Hamlin, ot tho Mt. Auburn Chinch, Cincinnati, preached. Many wcro drawn thero to hoar tho preacher from tho fame that ho has attained In Cincinnati ns a pulpit orator. Others wcro Impressed with tho idea that ho would become tho pastor of tho church, and both classes wcro thoroughly pleased with hlslm presslvo and clear style of diction. Thcro Is a grnco of manner about him that Indicates culture, and throughout his discourse he well sustained tho Impression. lTaelng his opened watch beforo him and opening tbo small Blblo ho road Isaiah I: IS, as n text for tho evening sermon. Ho found his sermon ou tho first clause of tho verse, "Como now nnd let us reason to gether, salththo Lord." Tho scrmou was extempore, Mr. Hamlin Is 33 years of ago and has been In tho ministry fourteen years and 11 half. Tho Ilr6t thirteen years he spent nt Troy, N. Y. Ho has been only a year and n half In Cincinnati. In person ho Is tall and ot fluo proportions. llo has a pleasant voice, and Instant attention Is given him when ho begins to talk. His method of do livery Is ot tbo conversational style, and his words aro 6lmp!e, pointed, and forcible. Tlio congregation of tho Church of tho Covenant aro In hopes that ho will become, their pastor, hut Mr. Hamlin has not as yet given n reply to the call, though ho will likely do so within u week. His congrega tion at Cinclntiatlhavo lately held a meeting Iirotcstlug agalusthlslciiving them.
