The progress of civilization, and the in
creasing diffusion of knowledge, have taught
the people of Europe a truism, which their
statesmen are slowly transforming into a prin
ciple. It is that the Church and the govern
ment of a nation have different fields to work
in, and cannot become intertwisted without in
jury to both, eventually substituting clashing
prejudices for administrative harmony. There
are times when the prelates of a powerful
church can aid the government of a powerful
nation; but history has in every generation
borne the testimony of experience to the fuel
that the price of the aid thus obtained eventu
ates in the vassalage of the state to the organ
ization of the helpiDg church. Having tasted
the sweets of political power and felt their
carnal fascinations, the prelacy soon seek
them more earnestly th&n the Glory of
Goo, for of a truth, religion is like the snow
from heaven. It can amalgamate with
nothing - earthly without being defiled
The prelate, be he Catholic or ..Proltitant,
who steps down from the pulpit to ascend the
lower rostrum, who closes the Bible to open
the text book of hauiun politics, and pr&cti
cally prefers speechifying to ,the delivering
and expounding of God's Word, impllej, by
the act, that he considers the temporalities of
earth worthier of his services tnan the Eternal
Master who Dida him go forth ani preach the
Gospel, il may, like Archbishop HcaHxs,
oe arrayed against a rebellion striving tu upset
a National Government; but he forgets that
he was appelated to put down the greater re
bellion of Satan against Jjchovah. Is it his
mission to save Slates, or to save souls of value
infinite? Was he sent to preach peace on
earth and good will towards man, or to sum
mon hosts to arms ? Was he not changed ty
leave unto Caxsar tho things that are
Oaxsai'b, and to seek for Goo the things that
are Guo'a,
Mark well the signs of the times in regard
to this matter. Italy is once more riding in
armed protest against the double re
gality of Pius. In the Southern States,
preachers, Catholio and Protestant, are as
suming the antithetical quality of priests and
political rebels. In the North, Archbishop
Hughes and Mr. Billows have abandoned
the holy cause of God to plead that of the
government. In this general desecration of
the highest office of man, which accompanies
the growth of this unholy rebellion, there is
something very strange if philosophy could
only find it out!
We have rtad the words of Paul, tho com
missions Christ gave, the commandments
thundered from Sinai ; but in none of these
have we found it enjoined in none of these
have we found it permitted that the Apostles,
the Levites, or their successors, make, break or
preserve temporal nationalities, and, to do it,
lay aside the preachings of the gospel of
When we read political harangues delivered
from a once saintly pulpit, in which the quo
tations used are neither from the word of God,
nor even from the sayings of the Fathers, but
are in lieu derived from the proclamation of a
temporal President or that of a military chief,
we cannot help feeling that that Church needs
reformation now, if it never needed it before.
Have idolatry, Sabbath breaking, profanity,
theft, adultery, murder and coveteousness de
parted this earth, that thoe ordained to urge
against them the prohibitory laws of Jxhovah,
have to turn to the edict of the rebel Davis or
the proclamation of a President to find what
-will lead to the edification of the souls of
We admire the abilities of Billows, the
Jesuitic suave diplomacy of Archbishop
HuOHia, the vehemence of Bell preachers;
but we sorrow for the honor cf Christianity
when we behold these capacities turned from
tne service of the Goo to whom they were so
solemnly pledged on ordination day ; and we
blush to see them 10 dwarfed, and, in one
sense, so desecrated, in tie service of a fleeting
. Alas, that so many popular preachers should
need preaching unto them I
ine x nest can properly stand before the
oldler, but with uplifted finger pointing to
the camps of the redeemed; to others shoala he
leave the call to carnage, and the horizontal
hand that points foe-ward.
vm tne Archbishop, will Mr. Billows,
will Mr. Ubis favor us with one instance in
wmca tine great Hierophant and Divine
founder' of Christianity ever mounted hillside
or pulpit in the Temple to call men to slaugh
ter? Was He ever heard thus to cry havoc
and slip the dogs of war Ha who, stricken on
one cheek, turned the other?
A rebellion, unequalod in magnitude.
' accompanied by a prierthoid secularized, must
place us in a light most enviable to the gaze of
Europe to-day, and to that of posterity here
after. ,
Oh, when will the oup pat from nsy&r the
aloes are bitter Indeed I
The 81tmatta.
Oca armies must not nlv beinore&eed vast
ly but increased immediately. Delay brings
everything to " fearful hazard. Delay,
if continued, is necessarily fatal. The rebels
are at work as perhaps no people were ever at
won oeiore. . iney are, as we all know,
gathering, by the most desperate means, their
wncie strength to strike a speedv. terrible, and
decisive blow, for. amid their failinz and al
most exhauted resources, they are aware that
this is their only hope. The largest army that
ever stoed npoa tnis continent is now at Kicn
mond or stretched out between Richmond and
Gordonsville, and, day after day, that vast
army is rendered still mere vast by the pour
ing in of thousands and tens of thousands of
conscripts from all the Southern States. All
tne departments cf tne rebel service are active
and energetic every day, and equally active
SJid energetic every night. The rebel author
ities and the rebel citizens fully appreciate the
tremendous magnitude of the crisis. In like
manner our own government appreciates it
and sends forth a loud call through the nation
for misrhty hosts to rush to the salvation of
the republic. That stirring call must be ans
wered not by sounding promises, not by en
thusiastic words, but by the speediest possible
appearance of hundreds of thousands of armed
men opon the theater of anticipated action.
Wa cannot be too quick ; there is sad danger
that we cannot be quick enough. The great
fear is that the rebels, lar in advance of us In
their preparations, will make their terrific on
set before we are fully ready to meet it. There
is a certainty that they will do this onlees we
succeed in hurrying forward reinforcements as
thev were never yet hurried forward by any
nation of modern times. Even in that event,
we trust that our magnificent and glorious
armies will be victorious, but, in matters of
such high and awful moment, nothing should
be left uncertain that can by any possibility
be made secure. '
Deeply aroused as our country is supposed
to be, and is, we doubt whether the mass of
the people, or any very considerable portion
of them, comprehend to the full extent the
magnitude of the preeent occasion. They
scarcely seem to us to realize that, within the
next few months, or perhaps the next few
weeks, or even the next few days, issues will
be decided vitally affecting not only themselves
and their posterity, but all mankind In all
time. It is of infinitely greater importance
tout we save the republic now than it was
it a', our fathers should win national freedom
in the old revolutionary struggle. If those
eld heroes had failed, their failure would have
been indeed a deplorable thing, yet still the
calamity would have been endured but for a
time; the separation of America from Great
Britain was written in the book of destiny,
and, if it had not been accomplished at one
period, t wouid inevitably have been accom
plisbed at another and not far distant period ;
but if we, the descendants 01 Uie gren. archi
tects of American freedom, fail now to pre
serve what they created, 11 from any cause
whatever we fail to save our republic from
being rent in twain, the dreadful consequences
of our failure can never, never be repaired
either by ourselves or by those who shall come
after us. No nationality rent apait by war
was ever reunited unless by the power of a
despot starting up from a sea of blood, and
none ever can be.
Oa the James River Rebel Battery sad

Jamestown, the first settlement in British
America, was founded by the famous John
Smith acd his companions, May 13, 1607.
Our sketch represents all that now remains of
it tne tower of the church, which is undoubt
edly the oldest in America. The first church
was burnt in the winter -f that year, since an
old History says, "Uood .Blaster Hunt, our
preachnr,Iost all his library, and all be bad
but the clothes on his baek. This happened
in the winter, in that extreme frost, 1607.
The spring approaching, Mr. Scrivener ' and
Capt. bmuh divided between them the re
building of Jamestown the repairing our
palisades, tne rebuilding our church and re
covering our storehouse. All men thus -busy
at their labors, Master Nelson arrived with his
lost Phoenix." It would seem that a similar
fate attended this second church, for Sparks,
in his life of John Smith, quotes from that
chivalrous man's account this passage: ' In
March, 1617, they stt sail for England, and in
May they arrived, under command of bamuel
Argall, at Jamestown, where they were kindly
entertained by Capt. Xearley and his com
pany, in a martial order, whose right hand
file was led by an Indian. In Jamestown he
found but five or six houses, the church down
the palisades broken, and the colonists dis
persing themselves about planting tobacco."
From these extracts it is evident that previous
to 1617, or ten years after the first settlement
of Jamestown, there had been two churches
destroyed. The tower, therefore, sketched by
oar artist, and which stands the solitary relic
of that once famous town, undoubtsdly be
longed to the third church erected here. It
is, in all probability, about 240 years old.
Close to this old tower the rebels have erected
an earthwork battery. The land on which it
stands, and the surrounding country, has been
long in the possession of tee Ambler family,
and is in pretty good cultivation.
Breckearldge em the Double Quickstep
The "time made" by Breckenridge's shoddy
follewers on the morning of the fifth, in their
retreat from Baton Rouge, deserves public
mention. Tney began tne retreat at ten
o'clock, and at twelve they were ten miles dis
tant from the scene of their inglorious repulse.
This is certainly the " best time on record."
Mr. Breckenridge always ran well before the
people. He understands running. On this
occasion he ran to fight another day, perhaps
but it is our judgment, Jefferson Davis, when
he hears of this exploit, will hang him up to
dry, right beside Mr. Mansfield LovelL Why
not 7 iireckenridge is no more of a soldie
than Lovell. But let us forget him. He is
the meanest traitor ever raised in Kentucky,
Just think of it. He bad fifteen regiments
of infantry, a body ot cavalry, and ten pieces
of artillery, and yet he waa. pushed off the
field by a foice not one fourth his numbers.
To our apprehension, this fight at Baton
Rouge is, in its results, one of the most signal
victories of the war. What with the tout
rout of the ragged starvelings of Breckearldgw
the "skedaddling party," as somebody styled
them yesterday and the destruction of the
ram Arkansas, the day deserve to be remem
bered. Jf. V. Uelta.

C. PI. Clay
We take the following passage from a letter
of the regular Washington correspondent of
the New York Evening Post :
WasHisQTOir, August 13. The speech of
Mr. Clay, at Odd-Fellows' Hall, last night,
gave sufficient evidence that the statement of
the Evening Post a day or two ainoe in refer
ence to him (and which ka been doubted, in
tome quarters here) was .absolutely correct-
Mr. Clay said repeatedly and distinctly in his
speech, that be would never drw his sword so
long as slavery was protected by tne uovern-
nient. The tone of Lis remarks on this head
was not very encouraging." That I may not
be accused of misrepresentation, let me qaote
a paragraph from the Republican report of
the speech :
u Mr. Clay then spoke of our efforts at home.
He was not fully satisfied with the drift of af
fairs. He believed the President to be an hon
est man, and the officers in the main desire to
do right; but we are trjing to conquer the re
bellion witn tne 8 word in one band and the
shackles in the other. We are fighting as
though we were anxious that neither side
should win. You have been eighteen months
carrying on this war on peace principles, and
wha nave you gamed r 1 am told by men 10
nigh authority tnat the capital is yet in dan
ger. You allow four millions of good Union
men in the ooutn. wno are your natural an its,
to cut your own throats. He Mr. C would
never u&e the sword while suxpery t prouctea in
rebel State. Loud applause and cheers a
lady sear us indignantly asserted that she did
not come to near abolition speecbes. I xr
better acknowledge the ' Confederacy,' and let
Mr. Davis and his people go by tnemselvos,
than attempt to defeat the designs of God in
regard to tne great question of universal lib
erty. xou must give to every man tne same
liberty you desire for yourself. Applause. J
When J draw a sword.it thall be for the I tera
tion ani not for the enslavement of mankind.'
Wild enthusiasm and applause. He would
