atesmen. This is the title of the sermon delivered by Rev. Moses Hoge, D. D., on the death of the late Judge Hemphill, and is marked by the characteristic vigor, discrimination and eloquence of its author. It rebukes in manly and stirring tones the vices of public men, and shows from the example of all history, that "righteousness exalted a nation." The sermon was published at the request of a large number of members of Congress, and will be read with universal admiration. Upon the text, "Righteousness exalted a nation," we have also in pamphlet form an admirable sermon from the learned Bishop Verot, Vicar Apostolic of Florida.

It is a very calm and logical production, and establishes the flagrant injustice of the invasion of the South by the Federal Government.

Religious duties of masters to slaves. The Protestant and Catholic clergy of the Confederacy are calling attention to the duty of enforcing the sanctity of the marriage relation among slaves. The Baptist Convention of Georgia has adopted an emphatic resolution upon this subject. The Southern Churchman quotes various religious authorities, setting forth the sinfulness of any neglect by masters of this Christian duty; among them Bishop Verot, (Roman Catholic Bishop of Savannah,) who says: "Slavery, to become a permanent institution of the South, must be made to conform to the law of God; a Southern Confederacy will never thrive unless it rests upon morality and order; the Supreme Arbiter of Nations will not bless with stability and prosperity a state of things which would be a flagrant violation of His holy commandments."
