The Shaking of the Kations.
sermo.v nr Trie bf.v. t>r marshal!., of M ississippi, AT THW COOPÄR msriTOTB. A sermon on "The Shaking of the Na tions" wan preached by an ex-rebel chap lain— ßev. Ur. Marshall, of Mississippi— in the basement hall of the Cooper Insti tute yesterday morning. The audience was very respectable, both in numbers and appearance. After singing and praying, during which latter exercise the reverend gentleman besought the Almighty to bless the President and guard him from the counsels of cruel and bloodthirsty men, distinguished prisoners—political prison ers—were also specially commended to ths care of the Almighty. For hi» text Dr. Marshall chose tlio fol lowing passage of Holy Writ:—"1 will »hake the nations, and the desire of all na tion# shall come, and I will fill this house with the glory of the Lord of Hosts." Time, he said, would fail, were he to at tempt to show forth the full moaning and richness of the text, foreshadowing as it did tho coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the nations of the world would be shaken, and the utmost he could hope to accomplish was to furnish his audience ■with a skeleton which tliey must cover with flesh and muscles. As an introduc tion to tho principal part of his discourse he laid before them what he under ton.I to bo tho Divin# method in the government of tho kingdoms of the world preparatory to the coming of Jesus Christ. He then proceeded to explain the reason why na tions wcro shaken, one ressort being that they got too big—not too great, but too big—by which he meant to say they ac quired a bullying, overbearing disposition, and went about the world singing "Rule Britannia" or some other similar ditty of self-laudation. Then they were shaken by God, and fell to pieces for the good of mankind. It was not by any means a question of territory, but it was the absence oj a spirit of brotherly love and kindness, which caused nations to be shaken and fall to pieces. By the spirit of brotherly love he meant that spirit which lireathed in the late speech of Lloyd Garrison oh the im prisonment of Jeti'ersou Davis, and tor which he (thospeaker)had learned to love Garrison, as it showed that he had a heart as big as the universe, and that it was filled with thoughts of fraternal love and friendship for all mankind. (Great sensa tion among tho audience; smothered ap plause and hisses). The same spirit which oreuthod in that speech would do much to establish a feeling of brotherly love and kindness over the length and breadth of the land. He then bitterly denounced all attempts tending to establish a sectional religious feeling between the North and South, and predicted that fearful results would ensue from all such attempted re ligiouB intolerance, lie earnestly desired that th« Northern people could listen to the teachings and preaching of Southern clergymen. From their pulpits not a word was spoken on political subjects from year's end to year's end. The language of the Southern people was very different from that of the bulls and bears of the Northern pulpits, who say to the South "For your sins God has deserted you, and you have been soundly thrashed;" butin the South where they have buried their son* a«d their fathers, where their houses are burned and their fields laid waste, the people still look up to God and acknowledge that it was good for them to be afflicted, and that in mercy, not in wrath, had they been chas tened by the hand of the Almighty. That was the spirit in which they wished to be received by their brethren of the North. They believed implicitly that whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth. Why could it not be understood that if a people, after having fought chivalrously for four years, could now, on being beaten, submit mag nanimously ? (Great sensation). He believed that this shaking of the na tion had tended to give each individual a clearer and better knowledge of tho char acter and lore of God. But not alone were nations thus shaken to accomplish tho will of God in proparing the world for the conning of the Lord. Individuals, fami lies and cities were at times shaken. After mentioning several instances where an un timely and awful calamity had overtaken both individuals and cities, he said that even the great city of New York would be shaken by God if it stood in the way of tho Lord Jesus, and some individual would in the remote futurn look down with a shudder of disgust at the adders and other poisonous reptiles gathered around tho ruins of the Croton aqueduct, and, as he stood there, ho wopld meditate on the cause of the downfall of the uiighty city. All these shakings of individuals, families, cities and nations were, however, but pre paratory to that time spoken of in the text when "this house shall be filled with tho glory of the Lord of Hosts." This—the concluding head of the discourso—was elo quently and briefly discussed, after which he announec.il that a collection would be taken up to defray the expense of hiring the hall, and tho surplus would be added to the fund ho was raisirig for the purpose of sending to their homes the disabled sol diers of Leo's late command, many of whom are now scattered all ovor the coun try. Ho spoke in high terms of the gen erosity of the merchants of New fork, for the liberality they had displayed toward him since his arrival in this city.
