The Sermon of the Rev. De. Moory, delivered before the congregations of the First and Second Presbyterian Churches in this city, on the National Fast Day, November 15, has been published by request, and is for sale at the bookstore of W. H. White. We have read this admirable production, as we read everything from the gifted pen of its eminent and excellent author, with the most sincere satisfaction. The leading points of the discourse are that ‘"War is a part of the agency by which God disciplines nations."’ 2. ‘"The proper resort of a people in time of war is to God."’ 3. ‘"We should then gird ourselves for this conflict, in the hope that God will maintain our cause."’ These positions are sustained and illustrated with the power, brilliancy, eloquence, and pathos, characteristic of Dr. Moore's remarkable pulpit ability. No patriot can read it without being nerved to do, to dare, and to die for his country; no Christian, without feeling to his heart's inmost cere that ‘"the Lord of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge."’
