. We know we are unworthy; as a people we have to confess our sins before Thee, and come to Thy throne in the name of Jesus Christ, the great Mediator, who is Himself the Prince of the kings of the earth, that we might have an interest in Thy pardonssions of the foe, to Thy care, to Thy favor, to Thy providence, to Thy protection. Smile upon them and upon us, through Christ our Redeemer. Amen. (Responses of Amen. ) These preliminaries having been arranged, the meeting was formally organizee to duty as Christians and fellow-citizens, as loyalists and patriots, as sinners saved in a common salvation through Jesus Christ, to whom with the Father and the Holy Ghost be praise now and forever. Amen. Speech of Hamilton Fish. My fellownd bring in peace and good — will over the whole land. We ask — we implore these blessings — for the sake of Thy Son, Jesus Christ, our adorable Saviour. Amen. At the conclusion of the prayer, Rev. Dr. Vermilyea said he desired to say a few word<
of the present might be calm enough to derive the same instructive lesson from it!) the fact that the glorious old flag which was once the flag of our Union, in truth as well as in name, floats boldly to the breezes of Heaven, above the cross of Christ, whom our fathers reverently worshipped as King of kings and Lord of lords. Pride and hatred now rise above humility and love, and the harsh notes of fratricidal war quite drown the gentle voice from Heaven, Peace on earth, good will toward men.men. Those of us who profess and call ourselves Christians, used but lately to place the cross of Christ above every thing else; but there is something now above that cross. Ought it to remain in such a proud, and, as it certainly must seem to every calm and humble Christian mind, a God-defying position? Vide the top of Grace Church steeple. God grant that Christian passers-by may look up and think, and learn a good lesson from such a significant sign of the times.--N. Y. News, April 29.
thousands stand ready to fly to the standard of our Southern Confederacy to maintain its integrity or perish in the attempt. Let us play the man for our people, and for the cities of our God, and the Lord do what seemeth him good. Let prayer be made without ceasing unto God, and the result is not doubtful. The Methodist Protestant, of Baltimore, says: We make no pretensions to statesmanship, we are no cabinet officer, we know little of state-diplomacy, but we think we know enough of Christ and his religion to be certain that war, and especially civil war, is a most cruel and wicked thing. It is anti-Christian, and a nation like ours ought not engage in it. Moral force at an era of civilization like that in which we live, ought to be able to settle State difficulties. The points of national honor upon which men dwell so eloquently, are as likely to be overrated as the points of personal honor in the ordinary duel. And what is this war likely to be? A gigantic duel between t
25th ult., Rev. James Bardwell offered up the following prayer: Almighty and most merciful God, our heavenly Father, we adore Thee as the king eternal, immortal and invisible, the only living and true God,--the creator and governor of all worlds — ruling in the armies of Heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth. Thy favor is life and thy frown is death — with reverence and profound humility would we present ourselves before Thee, to confess our sins and implore Thy mercy, through Jesus Christ our Redeemer. In his name do we present our petitions, and for his sake we humbly invoke Thy favor. We have sinned against Thee, 0 Lord, as individuals, and we have sinned against Thee, as a people. We have been unthankful for our blessings; we have abused mercies; we have misimproved our privileges; we have too often disregarded Thy authority and rejected Thy counsel. In the pride and vanity of our hearts we have forgotten Thee, the God of our fathers, and arrogated to ourselves th
. Resolved, That we shall assiduously invoke the Divine direction and favor in behalf of those who bear rule among us, that they may still exercise the same wise, prompt, elevated statesmanship which has hitherto characterized their measures; that their enterprises may be attended with success; and that they may attain a great reward, not only in seeing these Confederate States prosper under their administration, but in contributing to the progress of the transcendant kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. Resolved, That we most cordially tender to the President of the Confederate States, to his Cabinet, and to the members of the Congress now convened at Montgomery, the assurances of our sympathy and entire confidence. With them are our hearts and our hearty cooperation. Resolved, That the lawless reign of terror at the North, the violence committed upon unoffending citizens, above all, the threats to wage upon the South a warfare of savage barbarity, to devastate our homes and h
pplication and prayer for the Chief Magistrate of the Union, and for all that are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, in all godliness and honesty; and it is clearly my duty, by the same direction, to put those whom God has committed to my charge in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers. To my deep distress and disgust I have too much reason to fear that in at least one instance a minister of Christ may have so far forgot himself, his place and his duty, as actually to commit the canonical offence known as brawling in Church, while venturing to do what an archangel durst not do, and to defend transgression of an injunction of the Word of God. We of the clergy have no right to intrude our private views of the questions which are so terribly dividing those among whom we minister, into the place assigned us that we may speak for God, and minister in His worship. Still less claim have w
ained of God, and the magistracy is by His will to bear the sword not in vain. Christ, in His Messiahship, would not be made a judge or a divider as to the statutes cted the coming woes of His own people, and of their chief city. The Gospel of Christ, then, sanctions and consecrates true patriotism. Shall the Christians of the dden change, it is the duty of all to redeem the fleeting hour; the duty of all Christ's people to see that the walls of Zion be built in troublous times, and to hopeh his profession differed from theirs — he being a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ — he inherited their patriotic devotion to the flag of their country. His pat the institution belonged to the kingdom of Caesar, and not to the kingdom of Christ. But the time had come when the religious aspect of slavery could not be ignort unto you desolate. That was the spirit which should actuate the followers of Christ. He hoped the report would be adopted without a dissenting voice. Rev. Mr.

of the publican--God, be merciful to me, a sinner. It was accepted. Imitate the great captain when about to rush into a desperate conflict. You can remember it--Oh, my God, if I forget Thee this day, do not Thou forget me. Pray, then, yourselves, and dear ones at home will pray for you. And now God be with you, and bear your shield and buckler against all your foes, temporal or spiritual, and return you to your homes — conquerors for humanity's sake, your country's sake,--conquerors for Christ's sake. Amen. Reply of Colonel Wilson. Colonel Wilson received the banner from the hands of Mrs. George Strong, and, carrying it into the ranks, gave it into the hands of the color-sergeant. Colonel Wilson and the color-sergeant then returned to the foot of the steps, both grasping the banner of liberty. The Colonel seemed deeply affected, and his utterance was choked for some time. His wife stood on the stoop, regarding him with tearful emotion. At length he summoned courage and s
