whowns diwtined to commit many
other similar "Im-jruhirities," had
four years previously been "com

cuHtomers" at the Bell Inn, in that
same city. All tills being known to
the good Bishop, he made reply to the
complainant, that 'ho hoped tho

In 1737. after a sojourn nt Oxfor.d,
during which he graduated lie visited
London to assist a friend who had
been appointed curate at the Tower
and there his wonderful career as a
preacher fairly commenced. After
lie had been a month in town he re
ceived letters from the Wesleys, giv
ing glowing accounts of their work
In Georgia, America; "and from this
time," he says, "he longed to go
abroad and hcip them in that pro
vince." Tho letter of John Wesley
which flually determined him to do
so, is eminently characteristic of that
wondertul man. ininng tne tnree
months he remained in London, he
generally preached nine timcsa week.
So great was the crowd on these oc
casions, that constables had to be (sta
tioned at the church doors to keep or
der or prevent accidents and thou
sands often went away from the
largest churches for want of room.
Uke results nttemlMl his nreaehlnar
at Bristol and Gloucester. Large col
lections for the Georgia mission were
obtained. His friends often entreated
him to spare himself but his in
variable reply was. "I had rather
wear out then rust out. No nestling,
no nestling on this side of eternity." I
un tne urn or May. 1738. after a
pieosant out lonur voyaire. he reached
Savanah. He found that John Wes
ley had left for London, and he him
self a fter a short stay of four months
in tne colony returned. He had
however formed a uroiect which
was destined to influence tho whole
of his after life the establishment of
a home for orphans in Georgia. On
his arrival in London he found all the
churches closed against him; what
were called the "irreirtilarities." of
tho Wesleys had brought him also
into suspicion." A clergymen who
allowed him to preach was shortly
afterwards deprived of his lectureship.
At Bristol the Chancellor threaten
ed him with excommunication If he1
dared to preach or expound in the
diocese. Then he turned to the col
liers at Kingswood who needed con
versation his friends said; as much as
any Indians in Georgia. His first
sermon was "preached on a mount to
upward or two hundred." On the
next occasion Howard of ten thou
sand were assembled. "All was
hush." he snvsr "I siwilto fr.rnn timir
and so loud that all, I was told couhi
nviii, t jn-revcr ne went vast
throngs assembled to hear him. The
Gentleman's Magazine for 1739 tells
us, that, "on Suturduy 18th of March
instant, no preached at Ilanliain
Mount to tUMX) Dersons. In the even
ing he removed to the Common; it
was crowded with so great a multi
tude of couches foot and horsemen,
that they covered three acres, and
were computed nt twenty thousand.
The 25th of April he nrrived In Lon
don by way of Oxford, where he was
prohibited preaching bv the Vice
chancellor. On the 27tli hepieached
on a tomb in Islington Churchyard,
being denied tho pulpit. Sunday he
preached in MoorAelds; In the after
noon on Kennlngton Common." At
the latter services between thirty and
forty thousand persons were present.
Whitcfield preuched for an hour and
a half.
In August of thcsaineyearhcsRiled
for America. Tho opposition ho had
met with in England on the part of
the clergy, hud not yet spread to the
New World, and Whiteneld was
welcomed by them as before. When
ever lie was announced to preach im
mense congregations assembled. Ar
rived nt Savunah, he proceeded to
carry out his cherished project of
founding an orphan asylum. This
soon involved hint in difhnlti.s.
from which notwithstanding his her
culean labors he never esenped. He
took upon himself a burden for Iia-
yond his strength to lienr. In 1711,

Shortly after his return to England
ho became acnuainted with the Coun
tess of Huntingdon, who made him
one of her chaplains, and In whose
drawing room lie hnd frequent oppor
tunities of preaching to tho nobility
of Kngland. This meeting with
Lady Huntingdon completed the cir
cle of the influences' that determined
the whole of his after career. No new
element was afterward Introduced
into It. The remaining twenty-two
years of his lifo were spent In excdi
tions to America In ellorta to sustain
his orphan-house, In annual "cir
cuits" lor out-door preaching, which
embraced the whole of Great Britain.
and extended from tho departure of
the frost in early spring to Its return
in tho late autumn, and in winter
ministrations In the Tabernacle at
Mooreflclds, In a chapel which was
also erected for him In Tottenham
Court-road. Seven times In all lie
visited America, making thirteen
voyages across the Atlantic. The
length of his journeys, the continu-
ousness of his labors the number of his
sermons the vastnessof the multitudes
assembled to hearthem were alike who
wonderful. In spite of failing strength
and sore pain he labored to the end.
"On Saturday September 20, 1770"
his servant, ltichard Smith, tells us,
'Whitefleld rode from Portsmouth
(New England) to Exeter, fifteen
miles In the morning and preached to
a very great multitude In the fields.
It is remarkable that Isjfore he went
out to preach that day which proved
to be his last sermon, Mr, Clarkson,
Sen., observing hini more uneasy
than usual said to him, 'Sir, you are
more fit to go to bed thun to preach.'
To which Mr. Whitcfield answered,
"True, sir,' but turning aside he
clasped his hnnda together and look
ing up, spoke: 'Ixird Jesus, I am
weary iu Thy work, but not of Thy
work. If I have not yet finished my
course let me go and speak for Thee
once more mine neids, seal the truth,
and come home and die.' The text
he preached from was 2 Cor. xiii, 6."
The next day the Master called
his -wtwried servant -home. Thus
ended a lne of labor never surpassed
since the days of the Apostles. His
remains were interred nt Newbury
port, near Boston, a snot where lie had
often expressed a wish to be buried if
his death should take place near
enough to make it practicable.
In Cowtier's well-known poem,
"Hope," there occurs a singular testi
mony to the real worth of Whitefteld's
character. So bitter was the preju
dice against evangelical religion, even
in Cowjier's time, that iu vindicating
tills eloquent preucher. he thought it
better not to call him by name:

In time of danger and trouble
Jir. Speaker Colfax will leave on
therecords of Congress some of the
most shameful partisan ruling that
ever disgraced a deliberative body.
Parliamentary laws are stretched and
wnrped to allow the utmost latitude
of personal abuse to his fellow parti
saris; add titc utmost rigor la exerted
to gag the unprotected Democrats the
moment they begin a retort; In the
Hou,so on tLje 1st lnst.( under pretence
of making an explanation1 about the
Alta Vela business, Ben. Butler
launched into a gross personal attack
upon Mr. Brooks and his paper, the
New York Express. Ho even made
the basest allusions to a lawsuit in
which Brooks was engaged years ago.
Colfax saw nothing unparliamentary
in this. We subjoin what followed:
Mr. Brooks began by asserting that
Alta Vela was nota newly discovered
Island, but belonged to San Domingo.
He disclaimed also all Intention of
making any personal attacks on ei
ther Gen. Butler or Oen. Logan.
The following war of words ensued,
which we quote from the Globe:
Mr. Butler Will the gontleman al
low me to ask him a single question ?
Mr. Brooks Yes, sir.
Mr. Butler While I was In the
military service of tho country, did
not the gentleman arise here and ac
cuse me of being a " gold robber?"
Mr. Brooks I did : and It is because
I did arise and on this floor accuse the
gentleman of being a "gold rohlier"
(and the fact was substantially estab
lished In the courts of New York)
that he pursues me with the fire and
fury exhi bi ted upon all occasions when

Mr. Brooks Sir, the gentleman
from Massachusetts, in order to pun
ish me for this discussion two Con
Kresses since, has entered upon the
subject of a lawsuit which 1 had In

uttered to proclaim the glories of Big

gentleman is distinguished in war as
in the arts or peace, ur what use
would It be for me to speak of the

particularly of tho booty of New Or

Mr. Brooks Well. If the Chair had

of mine, I would bo quite able to ap

I might do as be has done, perhaps.
I miirlit say that I. not as a lower.
but as a JournaHst, having reference
io journalistic matters connected with
Alta Vela.as a subject of public dis
cussion, have been called uisin to give
an opinion In reference to some mat

And If 1 undertake to enter Into
that discussion, I Iioihi the Chair will
observe carefully what I am saying
ana Keen me wit nin the hounds or or

tain case in the State, of Massachu

had come homo from the glories of
war. illustrious and renowned, with
tne Keys or liicnmomi in his pocket,
elovatcd. ennobled, and iiirirra.nili7.cil
by tho various victories which he had
won over the enemies of his country ;
yet he was attacked there by a com
mon Lnc-K tayer for an onslaught upon

As he is capable of submitting pa
tiently to a thrashing like that. I
have no occasion here or elsewhcroto"
vindicate myself from the personal
attacks which the honorable gentle
than from Massachusetts makes upon
me here. . ,
Sir, no man can deprecate more
man i tnese discourtesies of debate ;
and those who have observed my
course in this House for years past,
will bear me witness that 1 never In
dulge in them unless I aid provoked.
But I allow no gentleman no honor
able or dishonorable gentleman in
any species of debate, unprovoked by
any personal allusion from me, to at
tack me without using all the talents
which God has given me In vindica
tion of myself and In the way of
propor retort.
I hope that now the honorable gen
tleman from Massachusetts is satis
fied with the vengeance he has had
for the exposure which I made of a
gold transaction In the city of New
Orleans. Wealthy as he is, abounding
In all the resources of fortune, enjoy

sum of money, and will no longer

care, was beyond his art. liong slnco
this show of vitality vanished, and
now it lies, bereft of life, a shapeless
mass which gives no sign, scarcely a

semblance of life, under the galvaulo

Senators f It was itot at all hoces-t
sary for tho defense of tho President
that, in tho exercise of that discretion
which tho lftw allows to him, ho'
should be put to prove that his Inten
tions were all right. He has gone
far beyond the necessities of his case.
Never were good intentions and hon
est motives more thoroughly proved
than they have been In this ease, I
repeat It, that if everything else were
made out agnltfst him, this great cx
culiiatory fact must absolve hint from
all criminal liability, And now,
Senators, I have done with the law
and tho facts of the case. There ro--rrtairts
for me, however, a duty tot bo
performed one of solemn import aud
obligation a duty to my client, to
my former chief, to my friend. There
may be those among you Senators,
who cannot find a case of guilt against
the President. There may lie those
among you, who, not satisfied that a
case for impeachment ha yet arisen,
are fearful of the consequences of ao
quital. You may entertain vaguo
apprehensions that Hushed with the
success of acquital tho President will
firoceed to acts of violence and revo
utlon. Senators, you do not know1
or understand the man. I cannot say
thut you willfully misunderstand hitu
for I, too, though never an cxtrcmo
party man, have felt more than onco,
In the heat of party conflicts, tho
same bitter and uncompromising spir?
it that may now unimalc,you. The
time has been when when I looked
upon General Jackson as tho most
dangerous of tyrants. Time has been,
when, day after day, I expected to
see him Inaugurate a revolution ; and
yet, after his administration was
crowned with success and sustained
by the people, I lived to seo him
gracefully surrender his great powers
to the hands that conferred them ; nnd
under the softening influences of ti me
I came to regard him, not as a tyrant,
but as oho of the most honest aiid pa
triotic of men. Now, listen for
moment to one who, perhaps, under
stand Andrew Johnson better than
most of you, for his opportunities
have been greateri When nearly
two j'ears ngo ho called me from the
pursuits of professional llfo to take a
scat in his Cabinet, 1 answered tho

I came here almost a stranger to him
and every memberof his Cabinet, ex
cept Mr. Stanton. We hnd been
friends for many years. Senators,
need I tell you that all my tendencies
are conservative? Y'ou, Mr. Chief
Justice, who havo known mo for a

ored witli a scat irt tho Cabinet of Mr.
Johnson, not a step was taken that
did not come under my observation,
nota word was said that escaped my
attention. I regarded him closely in
Cubinent, and in still more privuto
and confidential conversation. I saw
him often temptud with had advleiv
I know that evil counselors were
more than once around him. I ob

Constitution and the laws. He stood
firm as a rock against all teinntatlou
to abuse his own powers, or to exer
cise those which were Hot conferred
upon hint. Steadfast and self-reliant
in the midst of all dilllcultv. when
dangers threatened, when tempta
tion were strong, lie looked only to
the Constitution of his country and to
the people, Yes. Senators. I have
seen that man tried as few huve been
