When the Sixth Massachusetts Regiment passed through Trenton, N. J., a person residing there asked one of the soldiers “if he had any whiskey to stimulate him.” The other put his hand in his pocket, and drawing out a Bible, said, “That is my stimulant.” A noble answer, worthy of the cause in which he is engaged. History informs us of an army which carried Bibles and sang hymns, and “no enemy ever saw their backs.” --Phila. Inquirer.
