Rev. Mr. Vax-Fossf.n, of tlie XL E.
Church, preached in the PreHiijterian
Church List Sabbath morning.
The Theme
qf his Hcnuon was the Presence of
IT.; sal.l that nowhere in written
bistory is the presence of Go J sj
wonderfully made nianife&t as in the
liis.tr.ry of lr&tt. God was with his
Tootle Ir.u'!, fr.m their earliest tribal
tLivs, up t J the time that they be
came bjndmen in Egypt, an J nil
t'urough that down trodden state he
was present to direct them and pre
pare them for h national oi'guniz'V
lion, that was developed raider the
rule of Mose, who w:is an instru
ment x th liiinds of God. In his
ttitroi'.t'.e'ory he traced the presence
or G.d up to tLe time that he choKc
Moses ti) lead Israel out of bondage.
He sluwed how lauilliariy God mani-fe-u-.i
Lis presence to Moses, and
how M.wses was moved to ask of God,
'Show me now thy tray." The request
bf the leader of Israel was heard,
and Go 1 answered : .Vy presence
ahull go with thee, and I will give thee
rest.'' tv-e Exodus 33d chapter, lltu
The answer of God to Moses was
the teTvt from which the llevermd
-cutieman dwelt on the deliverance
of I-rael frota their down-trodden
condition, and analyzed his sermon
Mo three jrrar.d divisions :
1st God was present in tht Journey
of 1st act.
'2nd. God tru present to individual
members of Israel.
3iL Cod was present, and is present
in the rest thai faitk gives.
The Pretence if God was manifi si,
in the journey of Israel horn Egypt,
from tiie time that the hosts of riia
moh were destroyed in the lied Sea,
forty years till t!ie crossing of the
river Jordan was accomplished, and
the waib cf Jericho fell djwn, and
the land of p-om:se was reached.
How w-u(lerf ally God's presence was
revealed when M-s stt u -k the rock
an I the waters gir.hed forth. How
manifest it was when the manna was
wilt. How jrrand and awe-inspiring
when it revealed itself in the cloud of
o pillar of smt,ke by d"y, and in the pil
lar of fire by nignt. God's presence
is manifest to h:s people to-dity. not
perhaps by seemingly miraculous
physical changes, or appearances in
rite rrth of wator from dry rock, in
loud or pillar of fire, but in the com
forting assurance cr pe-sc of soul
that comes to every one who, Lko
Moses, asks, "dhow me now thy way."
2nd. God was pmcnt to individual
members cf Israel. See how Le was
present with Jus-eph undor the most
discouraging niisforiunes. II was
present in uivams, und I'.pLciJ J -t-eph
in fortitn.le when, during his
long wait of two years, he ws for
gotten by the King's butler, who
knew of how Go 1 was with Joseph.
He v-.s present with Mo&es in the
tuminq bush, and all through Lis life.
He was present with the prophets,
sind filled the truise with oil ;
and as the Reverend gentleman
worked Lis way under the second
Lead of the sermon he grew eloquent,
and quoted great numljers of sacred
historical event;', wherein the pres
ence of God was manifest to Israel,
in both national and individual afe.

in the rest that faith gives. "When men j

the presence cf God will be manifest
It never failed Joseph ; it never failed
Moses ; it never failed the prophets ;
ii ne-.ei- failed Israel as a nation. God
was manifest to maintain them in
everv trial against their enemies ; he
fought their battles, and he gave
them an assm-ance of a rest beyond
the conflict There is ret in faith.
The people of to-day Lave not the
martyrdom of the stake and the cross
to endure to test their faith,' and to
cause them to long for the re6t that

Oil Sabbath evening Rev. E. E. Borry, of
the Lutheran "Church, presxbvd from the
text found in Romans 12th chapter and loth
verse i
If it be possible, as much as lieth In
you, live peaceably with all men."
Tui TnsttE
of the sermon was LIVE IN CHRISTIAN
It was Paul that so requested his brethren
to live. The text seemed to imply a doubt
as to one living peaceably in this world,
and yet it could have only one meaning,
that we are to live peaceably with all men.
Tht Practical a'ulies of life are so varied,
and manifold that it is hard to just tell what
Paul meant. Of Course it did not mean
that we ars not to care whether offence be
given, or not given, but the doubt which is
implied, in "If it be possible," gives room
for offence that nny be given uninteution
ally in the discharge of the practical duties
of lire.
H'e all tare certain dnlits to perform, and
in the performance of those duties may give
offence. Doubtless Paul, when be said
If it be possible," saw how difficult it it
to lice peaceably and discharge Christian
duty ; but the duty of the Christian does
not mean that be hdl be the aggressor.
His own acts are nut to be ggresive; his
deportment toward his fellow-men should
be kind, and bis language should be guard
ed, o that no ci ttit.g or reproachful words
are used for the purpose of giving offence.
To iirs ia Christian Peace,
INVOLVES The faithful presentation of
truth, and sometimes the faithful presenta
tion of truth gives ofl'euce. It is tlio duty
of the Christian lo present the truth, and
he should present it with the possibility of
giving offence, for the truth of the Chris
tian is
Posititt in ilt character. There is noth
ing of the negative in truth. Knowing the
iiositiveness of truth, it is highly probably
that the apostle Paul meant that they j
should be particular to strive, and present
it in the manner that would be the leat
likely to effetid. A blow on the cheek may
produce a stringing, smarting pain, but the j
physical irjury or smsrt, is not to be com
paied lo the ache in the heart that often is
caused by unkind words.
INVOLVES the duty of the preventing of
the Impost on the nght$ of others. It is
the duty of every one to respect the rights
and feelings of others, and not trespass on
the rijliU of others, yet how often is it
done. One person sees auothcr put up a
piece of paptr on auother's boue, or busi
ness place ; he intimates that it is a notice
of sherifl's sale ; the next individual en
laiges on it, and j-erbaps the next makes
the positive assert;on that the effects of
Mr. So and So has passed into the custody
of the sheriff, and thus the business char
acter ol the man is greatly iijured, if not
ruined, and that is trespass. Men and wo
men may by insinuation trespass on the
rights ol others, and make a leactaule life
almost in.jwssib'.e. A man in society may
be haughty to others, and thus trespass on
the rights of others, and disturb the peace
of mind of those against whoiue he offend
ed. A man of influence, of wealth, and
honor may look down on the common herd,
and thus trespass up.in and disturb the
peace of mind of many.
Svmrtimes requires that we give np pecu
liar notions.
We may have peculiar notions of things,
and ttiey be wrong, and in maintaining them
disturb the peace ol many. We may bo
under the control of a qv.ick passion, that
lesds us off of the way of the Christian
Peace. There are weaknesses that are hard
to overcome, but a hich t.hould b;r o erconie,
for they make a peac-a!le life hard to tead.
At this point in the sermon the Reverend
gentlemen aked to be pardoned for making
lu.ntion of a member in his former hsrge,
in Northumberland, who never took of
fense at what was said or done to him. He
had the pious art of turning good-naturedly
from everthing offensive that was leveled
The nious art that he em
ployed should be cultivated

Judge William Parry, in an addres
before the Solebury Farmers' Club,
Bucks county, P , last winter, says :
Tbe cost of feocing our land is a
heavy tax upon our energy, and should
be greatly reduced. We are too apt to
follow iu the foc'sipps of our prede
cessors, without considering the changes
that have taken place since their time.
When our country was new, in a state
oi nature, vie'ding an abundance of
rich pasture, but little land being tilled,
it was necessary to fence arouud the
cultivated crops to jralect the in from
herds of cattle roatuiug at large in
search of their daily food Hut maik
the change in our time ; the Isnd has
II been surveyed and purchased by in
dividuals, the State reserving the right
of public travel, but not tbe right of
putlie pasture. The present system of
fencing against road cattle is an unne
cessary expense, and the space occu
pied by fences and headlands, a waste
of od soil, which should yield largs
crops. The cmtom which still pre
vails among farmers in some sections,
of permitting their cattle to roam at
large upon tbe highways, is wrong
in principle, and unjust for those
who do not suffer their stock to run
loose, to be required to fence against
cattle. Every person should be re
quired to keep Lis stock upon bis own
premises. All persons who own cattle
should keep the.u inclosed. The prac
tical operation of preventing animals
from running at large, in souu parts oi
our country, bat been salutary and fa
vorable, saving large expenditures for
fences, many of wbicu have been re
moved from tbe roadside, thus adding
about eight per cent, to tbe amount of
cultivated lands. Fruit and ornamen
tal trees hive been planted along tbe
public highways, which contribute to
he comfort aud pleasure of travelers,
as well as to tho beauty end value of
the farms. Fences, being one of tbe
heaviest expenses on tbe farm, should
not be required when only needed to
keep cattle on the publio highways.
Tbe practice of letting cattle ran at
large on the highways is a nuisance,
which should be abated by all proper
Tbe running of cattle at large on the
pubhe highways ia a nuisance which
ought to be abolished, and this should
be done without respect to any merit
there might be in the fence question.
There are many other initlers involved
in tbe question of line fences and road
feoccs, with which highway eaitie, or
even cattle of any class, having to do.

The Riot Damage Bill, and the Border
Claim Bill took up the time of the Legisla
ture to such a degree that no provision has
been nude to raise money to piy the mem
bers. The Statu Treasurer, it is reported,
has concliid.-d to i:se such funds as be has,
toward the payment of the claims of the
Common Schools. The cri.icism of tho
country should nut be too severe on the
Legislature. Considering the poaerful ia
tlueu;'s '-f tho lobby brought to be-ir on
wak i. ciu'. ers, tne uu.uber of such
not tmali, It was quite an achievement for
the tax-payers, generally, that the two bills
mentioned were not passed. Together they j
iroutu Lave taken at least six minion uoi-
lars to settle their demand.
Tin Democrats mean to elect the next
President, and w ill never sgaia permit them
selves to be cheated out of their rights.
Any attempt to repeat tbe electoral swindle
of lh77 will bring about a 'revolution
never to be lorgotteu." DtmOcrct and Reg
ister, last week.
That's valorous talk for the Democrat an I
Register, who in times ol d.m?er would j
" sniff the from afar," and Tilden's i
barrel isn't empty, which is abundantly evi
denced bv tbe tTcrs th.t the Nephew made
to the tune of $0,i0, $ '.'t.Olt, f. W.IWO, .

and Oregon. Write a paragraph about the
revolutionary v'ntue of the effort to buy
I'resideutial electors.
The Democrat and Register last week pub
lished a sjieech that was delivered in Con
gress lately, by Congressman Blackburn,
who sports a I4-i:ich moustache, aud is a
brother lo Dr. Blackburn, who ws iu Can
ada during the Confederate war as a secret
service agent for the Rebels, and tngiged
then; in the business of packing a lot of fine
shirts contaminated with stnali-pox virus to
be sent to President Lincoln, to spread that
disease iu aud about the White House.
The speech of Congressman Blackburn is
on the subject of a -Free Ballot." Their
views about a tree ballot sie somewhat pe
culiar when put into practice. The free
dom is all to be on one side, and consists
in bulldozing people to vote for their can
didates, and then altr the ballots have been
cast they are so free with them that no one
but tbemsilres know what has became of
them. But what's the use of quoting Joe
Blackburn on the subject of a free ballot I
Haven't we an illustration In this place 1
Havn't the billots in this town been so free
that Ihey couldn't Oe even kept in a vault t
Firo la t're Ballot.
Tbe Seiinsgrove papers last week pub
lished the following relative to tbe proposed
Seiinsgrove and North Branch Railroad :
The following is ihe new board of directors
of the Seiinsgrove and North Branch Rail
road Company : E. B. McCrum, Wni. F.
Eckbert, J. W. Gaugler, all or Seiinsgrove ;
Wm. Moyer, U. H. Grimm, of Frecburg;
D. O. Winey, of Richfield 5 J. Banks Wil

J. M. Hurlbnt, Henry A. Taylor, Henry F.
Shoemaker, all or New Toik. E. B. Mc
Crum was elected President ; Miles Wettel,
secretary, and V . r. tcKoeii, treasurer.
Mr. McCrum is also Receiver of the road.
J. M. Hurlbut is said to be "Vice President
of the Minnesota Central Railroad."
"Noyes, Gaylord and others of New
York, men who were persistently represent
ed as millionaires aud anxious to build the
S. & N. B. R. R., have disappeared from
the field altogether. Wht they ever did to
promote the building of the road doss not
appear in the road itseif, where help alone
was needed. There were plenty of meet
ings, ami resolutions, and going and com
ing, and sublime lying, but no real help to
build the road. Now we have, so far as is
known, sn "itirely new set of men from
Ne Yoii, in persons of Gates, Hurl
but, Taylor and S wemaker. If these men
:ave the necessary amount of money to in-
' -t and are willing and ready to invest it,
tu. n work on the road will go on. Names
amount to nothing. Money is what is want
ed to build railroads. The millions Noyes
and Gaylord were represented to have, had
no existence."

Lo t oar Congress has assembled,
And where floats the stripes and stars
Sirs a host of rebel leaders
Who once cheered the stars and bars '."
"Time," 'tis said, '-makes all things even," j
And iu fifteen peaceful years,
Lo I onr Capital is t:ken"
By the rebel Brigadiers.
Waa't for this we scaled the ramparts
Surging with the smoke of hell 1
Was't tor this we marched and labored ?
Wa-i't lor this our heroes fell I
Was't for this they starved in prisons
'Decked ten thousand crimson biers
That the nation now may honor
Nineteen rebel Brigadiers 1
Down within the damp morasses
Fought we lopjf and fought wis well.
While the boomiug of the cannon
Rang tbe soldier hero's knell ;
Ilieh upon tbe heights we rallied
Rent the heavens ttltb our cheers.
That the 46ou:h" might send lo Congress
Nineteen rebel Brigadiers.
Twas for this we tramped on picket
Through the niht and through the rain ;
'Twas for this ihe country labored.
Heart, aud hand, and throbbing brain ;
'Twas tor this that tiieuds were parted
Wives and sweethearts from their dears
That to-day oar great (.') Ian -makers
Might be rebel brigadiers.
Though we wou the hard -fought battles.
Should wa gained the laurel crown
Siill the "blue" is "way nlT color,"
And our Hig hangs "mu ni dow n ;
It's the "gray" that now is honored,
And this hard tact bums and sears
That the sum of all onr vic'tries
Are these nineteen Brigadiers.
And the ghost of treason once more
Stalks across the saddened land,
While til- life-bloo i of our bmihers
Drips from either bony haud ;
And the Oodde of our Freedom
Shad-'S her eyes to hide her trs.
