with waiting battle-lights! About the Christmas hearths vague shadows came; Close mists of sorrow damp the sparkling flame For many a household missed its dearest head, And many a Rachel mourned her children dead; Our people, looking in the embers low, Familiar with the ashes, talked with woe. The angels' song that hailed the mystic birth, “Glory to God, peace and good — will on earth,” Though echoed, and the burthen of a prayer, Weighed the heart's wings, and hope seemed half despair, Till Christ, perchance, on his dear mission came Into the fireside's saddened ring of flame, And soothed the mourners with his whispering, “Man's cause is mine! Peace and the Sword I bring.” To-day, flushed morn of greetings, Memory's hands Warm with new blood, and gathered household bands Radiant with home's gentle atmosphere-- Muffle the bells that rock the cradled year! We may not gladden the old holiday With mirthful words and fancies brightly gay. 'Tis not for Time, and what Time takes, we g
A fighting Clergyman.--Rev. B. C. Ward, pastor of a Congregational church in the village of Geneseo, Ill., conceives it to be his duty to forsake the pulpit for the field. He has received authority to raise a company of infantry, but proposes to enlist clergymen only. An appeal to his clerical brethren, published over his own signature, calls upon the fighting stock of the Church militant to prove to the world their willingness to seal with their blood what they have talked in their pulpits, and closes with this extraordinary passage. Much as we have said and done to prove our loyalty, we have not yet resisted unto blood striving against sin. Shall we now, at the call of Christ, come out from behind our velvet-cushioned barracks, whence we have so often hurled bold, indignant words at the giant iniquity of the age, and meet it face to face with the hot shot of rifled artillery, with the gleaming bayonet, or with clashing sabres in hand to hand encounter?
this is great. Many regiments have no chaplains. Thousands and thousands of our soldiers never heard a sermon. Deprived of this means of grace, and exposed to so many and so powerful demoralizing influences, what is to become of them, if divine truth in some form does not reach them? Shall no man care for their souls? Shall we leave them to perish, and not make earnest efforts for their salvation? And will not the blood of souls be upon us? Let us look our responsibilities in the face, and endeavor by Divine aid to fulfil them! Let this noble enterprise which proposes, as far as possible, to supply the lack of religious services in the camps by the employment of colporteurs, and by those little messengers of Gospel truth — tracts — be amply sustained. If you are disposed to aid a great cause — the cause of patriotism and of religion, the cause of country and of Christ — please remit your contributions to James E. Cuthbert, Treas. of the Evan. Tract Society, Petersbu
27. to John Pierpont. Servant of Christ, erect, unwearied, strong, Fresh from the toils of nearly fourscore years-- A work-day in his vineyard brave and long-- The evening hour thou giv'st to man, to God, The last the brightest of thy life appears. On! to the Holy City, which the foe Of man and God assails, to overthrow The fairest temple mortal hands have raised, And tramp with Slavery's hoofs where Freedom trod, Thou girdest on thy armor. God be praised. Lift high his Cross. By that his hosts be led. Soldier of God! his banner wave; thy head Bearing its mortal crest of silver white, Thy lofty soul wreathed with immortal light. Libertas.
