    THE PITTSBURG- DISPATCH, MONDAY, MAY 6, , 18681 ' " " , :; ,, . - . ,V ' 'V .
He Does Uot Favor Miscegenation,
and the Man Who Says He Did,
Other Dajs Lived Over is the Subject of His
Bbooexyn, May 5. At the Tabernacle
to-dayjthe Iler. I. DeWitt Talmage, D. D
preached a 'sermon on the subject, "Other
Days Lived Over,"andmadereference to the
falsehood that be had advocated miscegena
tion ot the white and black races. The vast
congregation sang the hymn beginning:
Our God, oar help in aces past,
Our Iiope for years to come.
Dr. Talxnage's text was Deuteronomy viii., 2;
"Thou shalt remember all the way which
tie Iord thy God led thee." He said:
Before entering on my subject I wish to say
that some newspaper correspondents, referring
to a recent sermon in which I welcomed for
eign nationalities to this country, hare said
that I advocated as a desirable thing the inter
marriage of the white and black races. I never
eaid so, I never thought so, and anyone who so
misrepresents that sermon is either a villain or
a, fool, perhaps both.
Bat to open this morning's subject I have to
say God in the text advises the people to look
back upon their past history. It will do us all
good to rehearse the scenes between this May
morning and our cradle, whether it was rocked
in country or town. A few days ago, with my
Bister and brother, I visited the place of my
bojhaod. It was one of the most emotional
and absorbing days of my life. There stands
the old house, and as 1 went through the rooms
2 said: "I could find my wav here with my
eves shut, although 1 have not been here in
40 years." There was the sitting room where a
large family group every evening gathered,
the most of them now in a better world. There
where we hunted for Easter eggs and the
place where the horses stood. There is where
the orchard was, onlythree or four trees now
left of all the grove tnat once bore apples, and
such apples, too. There is the brook down
which we rode to the watering ot the horses
bareback and with a rope halter. We also
'visited the cemetery where many of our
kindred are waiting for the resurrection, the
old people side ty side, after a journey to
gether of 60 years, only about three years be
tneen the time of their going. There also
sleep the dear old neighbors ,wbo used to tie
their horses under the shed of the country
meeting bouse and sit at the end of the pew
singing "Duke Street" and "Halerma" and
Antioch." Oh they were a glorious race of
men and women who did their work well,
raised a splendid lot of boys and cirls, and are
now as to their bodies in silent neighborhood
on earth, but as to their souls in jubilant
neighborhood before the throne of Goo. I feel
that my journey and visit last eek did me
pood and it would do you all cood, if not in
person then in thougnt, to revisit the scenes of
boyhood or girlhood. "Thou shalt remember
all the way in which the Lord thy God led
Youtn is apt too much to spend all its time
in looking forward. Old age is apt too much
to spend all its time in looking backward.
People in middle life and on the apex look both
ways. It would be well for us, I think, how
ever, tii spend more time m reminiscence. By
the conmtmen of our nature we spend most of
the time looking forward, and the vast major
ity of this audience live not so much in the
present as in the future. I find that you mean
to make a reputation, you mean to establish
jourself. jnd the advantages that you expect
to achieve absorb a great deal of your time.
But I see no harm in this if it does not make
you discontented with the present or disqualify
you for existing duties.
It is a useful th'ng sometimes to look back,
j&nd to see the dangers we have escaped, and to
nee the sorrows wc have suffered, and the trials
and wanderings of our earthly pilgrimage, and
to sum up our enjoyments. 1 mean thiB morn

am aware that tbe memory of the cast, with
many of you, is all covered up with teu thous

to far as the Lord may help me, to take away
the covering, that the old picture may shine
out again.

Among tbe crrcatest advantages of your past
life was an early borne and its surroundings.
The bad men of the day, for the most part, dip
their heated passions out of the boiling spring
of an unhappy home. We are not surprised to
find that Byron's heart was a concentration ot
tin. when we hear his mother was abandoned,
and that she made sport of his infirmity, and
often called him "the lame brat." He who has
Ticious parents has to fight every inch of his
way if be would maintain his integrity, and at
last reach tbe home of the good in heaven.
Perhaps your early home was in the city.
It may have been in tho dajs when Canal
street. New l'ork, was far up-town and tbe
site of this present church was an excursion
into the country. That old house in the city
may have been demolished or changed into
Stores, and
to you, for there was more meaning In that
plain house, in that small house, than there is
in a granite mansion oraturreted cathedral.
Looking back this morning you see it as
though It were yesterday the sitting room,
w uere me luveu uues sat uy tne plain lamp
light, the mother at the evening stand, the
brothers and sisters, perhaps long ago gathered
into the skies, then plotting mischief on tbe
floor or under the table, jour father with a
firm voice commanding auiience that lasted
half a minute.
Oh, those were good days ! If you had your
foot hurt, your mother always had a soothing
Falve to heal it. If you were wronged in the
street, your father was always ready to protect
you. The year was one round ot frolic and
mirth. Your greatest trouble was like an
April shower, more sunshine than shower. The
heart had not Decn ransacked by troubles, aor
had sickness broken it, and no lamb had a
warmer sbeepfold than tbe home in which
your childhood nestled.
Perhaps you were brought up in tbe country.
You stand now to-day in memory under tbe old
tree. You clubbed it for fruit that was not
quite ripe because you couldn't wait any
longer. Ton hear the brook rumbling along
over tbe pebbles. You step again into tbe fur
row where your father in his shirt sleeves
shouted to the lazy oxen, "ion frighten the
Ewallows from the rafters of the barn, and take
just one egg, and silence yonr conscience by
baying tbey won't miss it. You take a drink
again out of the very bucket that the old well
fetched up. Yon go for the eon sat night and
find them vtagclng their heads thruugn tbe
bars. Ofttimes in tbe dusty and busy streets
you wish you were home again on that cool
grass, or in the rag carpeted ball of tbe farm
house, through which there was the breath of
sew mown hay or the blossom of buckwheat.
Yon may have in yonr windows now beauti
ful plants and flowers brought from across tbe
seat, but not one of tbem stirs in your soul so
much charm and memory as the old ivy and the
yellow sunflower that stood sentinel along the
garden walL and the forget-me-nots playing
hide-and-seek raid the long grass. Tbe father,
who used to come in sunburnt from the fields
and sitdown on the doorsill and wipe the sweat
from bis brow, may have gone to his everlast
ing rest. Tbe mother, who used to sit at the
tloor a little bent over, cap and spectacles on,
her face mellowing with the vicissitudes of
many years, may have put down her gray head
on the pillow in tbe valley, but forget that
homeyoa never will. Have-on thanked God
tor it? Have you rehearsed all these blessed
reminiscences? Oh. thank God for a Christian
father: thank God for a Christian mother;
thank God for an early Christian altar at which

t bring to mind another passage in the his.
y ot your we. ineuay came wnenyouset
up your own household, me uays passed
along in quiet blessedness. You twain fat at
tbe table morning and night and talked over
your plans for the future. The most insignifi
cant affair in your Ufa became the subject of
mutual consultation andadnsement. You were
bo happy you felt you never could be any bap
pier. One day a dark cloud hovered over your
dwelling and it got darker and darker, but out
Ot that cloud tbe shining messenger of God
descended to incarnate an immortal spirit
Two little feet started on an eternal Journev,
and you were to lead tbem a gem to flash in
heaven's coronet, and you to polish it; eternal
ages of light and darkness watching the start
ing out of
Yon rejoiced and yon trembled at the re
sponsibility that in your possession an lm-
mortal treasure was placed. You prayed and
rejoiced and wept and wondered and prayed
and rejoiced and wept and wondered; yon
were earnest in supplication that you might
lead it through life into the kingdom of God.
There was a tremor in your earnestness. There
was a double Interest bout that home. There
was an additional interest why you should stay
there and be faithful, and when in a few
months your house was filled with the music of
the child's laughter, you were struck through
with the fact that you had a stupendous mis
sion. Have yon kept that vow? Have you neg
lected any of these duties? la your home as
much to you as it used to be? Have those an
ticipations been gratified? God help you to
day in, your solemn reminiscence, and let His
mercy fall upon your soul if vour kindness has
been ill requited. God have mercy on tho
parent on tbe wrinkles of whose face is written
the story of a child's sin. God have mercy on
tne mother who, in addition to her other pangs,
has the pangs of a child's iniquity. Oh, there
are many, many sad sounds in this sad world,
but the saddest sound that is ever beard is tbe
breaking of a mother's heart. Are there any
here who remember that in that home they
were uniatthrul? Are there those who wan
dered off from that early home, and left tbe
mother to die with a broken heart? Ob, I stir
that reminiscence to-day,
I find another point in your life history. Ton
found one day you were in the wrong road; you
couldn't sleep at night; there was just one
word that seemed to sob through yonr banking
house, or through your office, or through your
shop, or your bedroom, and that word was
"Eternity." You said. "I am not ready for it.
O God, have mercy." The Lord beard. Peace
Ranm to vonr heart. In the breath of the hill
and the waterfall's dash you heard tbe voice of
God's love: tbe clouds and the trees hailed you
with gladness; you came into
You remember how your hand trembled as
you took up the cup of the Communion. You re'
member the old minister who consecrated It,.
and you remember the church officials who
carried it through the aisle; you remember the
old people who at the close of the service took
your hand in theirs in congratulating sympathy
as much as to say," Welcome home, you lost
prodigal;"and though those bands are all with
ered away, that Communion Sabbath is resurrec
ted this morning; it is resurrected with all its
prayers and songs and tears and sermons and
transfiguration. Have you kept those vows?
Have you been a backslider? God help you.
This day kneel at the foot of mercy and start
again for heaven. Start to-day as you started
then. Arouse your soul by that reminiscence.
But I must not spend any more of my time in
going over the advantages of your life. I just
put them all in one great sheaf, and I wrap
them up in your memory with one loud harvest
song, such as the reapers sing. Praise the
Lord, ye blood bought mortals of earth! Praise
the Lord, ye crowed spirits of heaven!
.But some ot you nave
not always had a
smooth life. Some of yi
on are now lu -the
shadow. Others bad their troubles
years ago.
ou are a mere wreck of what you once were.
t must gather up the sorrows c
your past life.
but bow shall I do it? You say that it is impos
sibles you bave nan so man) troumes ana ad
versities. Then I will just take two, tbe first
trouble and the last trouble. As when you are
walking along the street, and there has been
music in the distance, you unconsciously find
yourself keening step to the music,so when you
started Hf e j our very life was a musical time
beat. The air was full of joy and hilarity; with
the bright, clear oar you made tbe boat skip;
you went on, and lite grew brighter until after
a while suddenly a voice from heaven said.
'Halt!" and quick as the sunshine you halted;
you grew pale, you confronted
You had no idea that the flush on your child's
cheek was an unhealthy flush. You said it
can't be anything serious. Death in slippered
feet walked about the cradle. You did not
hear the tread; but after a while the truth
flashed on you. You walked the floor. Oh, if
you could, with your strong, stout hand, have
wrenched tbat child from the destroyer. You
went to your room and yon said, "God, save my
child! God, savo my child!" The world seemed
going out in darkness. You said, "I can't bear
it; I can't bear it!" You telt as if you could
not put tbe long lashes over the bright eyes,
never to see tbem again sparkle. Oh; if you
could have taken that little one in your arms
.and with it leaped the grave, how gladly you
would bave done itl Oh, if you could let your
property go, your houses go, your land and
your storebouse go, how gladly you would bave
allowed tbem to depart if you could only have
kept tbat one treasure I
Bat one day there arose from tbe heavens a
chill blast that swept over the bedroom, and
instantly all tbe light went oat, and there was
darkness thick, murky, impenetrable, shud
dering darkness. But God didn't leave you
mere, juercy spoice. as you took up tne cu:
and was about to put it to j our lips, God sail
"Let it pass." and forthwith, as bv the band
angels, another cup vas put into your bands; it
was tbe cup of Gou's consolation. And as you
have sometimes lilted tbe bead of a wounded
soldier, and poured wine into bis lips, so God
put His left arm under your head,and with His
right hand He poured into your lips the wine of
His comfort and His consolation, and youlooked
at the empty cradle and looked at your broken
heart, and you looked at the Lord's chastise,
ment, and j ou said, "Even so, Father, for so it
seenieth good in Thy sight."
Ah, it was your first trouble. How did you
get over it? God comforted you. You hav
been a better man ever since. You bave been
a better woman ever since. In the jar of the
closing gateot tbe sepulchre you beard the
clanging of the opening gate of heaven, and
you felt an irresistible drawing heavenward.
You bave been purer of mind ever since the
night when tbe little one for the last time put
its arms around your neck and said: "Good
night, papa; good night, mamma. Meet mo in
But I must come on down to your latest sor
row. What t as it? Perhaps it was your own
sickness. The child's tread on the stair, or tbe
tick of the watch on the stand disturbed you.
Through tbe long, weary days you counted tbe
figures in tbe carpet or the flowers in tbe wall
paper. Oh, tbe weariness, the exhaustion! Oh,
the burning pangs! Would God it were morn
ing, would God it were night, were your fre
quent cry. Bat you are better, or perhaps
even well. Have you thanked tbat Gou to-day
you can come out in the fresh air, that you are
in this place to hear God's name, and to sing
God's praise, and implore God's help, and to
ask God's forgiveness? Bless the Lord who
healeth all onr diseases, and redeeineth our
lives from destruction.
Perhaps your last sorrow was a financial em
barrassment. 1 congratulate some of you on
vour lucrative profession or occupation, on
ornate apparel, on a commodious residence
everything you put your nanus to seems to
turn to gold. But there are others of you who
are like the ship on which Paul sailed, where
two seas met, and you are broken by tbe vio
lence of the waves. By an unadvised indorse
ment, or by a conjunction of unforeseen
events, or by fire, or storm, or senseless panic,
you bave been flung headlong, and where you
one dispensed great chanties now you have
bard work to make the two ends meet.
to thank God for your days of prosperity, and
tbat through your trials some of you have
made investments which will continue after
the last bank of this world has exploded, and
the silver and gold are molten in the fires of a
burning world? Have you, amid all yonr losses
and discouragements, forgot that there was
bread on your table this morning, and tbat
there shaU'be a shelter for your head lrom the
storm, and there is air for your lungs, and
blood for your heart, and light for your eye,
and a glad and glorious and triumphant reli
gion for your soul?
Perhaps your last trouble was a bereavement,
Tbe heart which in childhood was your refuge,
the parental heart, and which has been a source
of the quickest symnatby ever since, has sud
denly become silent forever, and now some
times, whenever in sudden annoyance and
without deliberation yon say, "I will go and tell
mother," tbe thought flashes on you, "I have
no mother;" or tbe father, with voice less ten
der, but as stanch and earnest and loving as
ever, watchful of all your ways, exultant over
your success without saying much, although the
old people do talk it over bv themselves, bis
trembling band on tbat .staff which you now
keep as a family relic, his memory embalmed
in:gratelnl hearts, is taken awav forever.

Or, there was yonr companion in life, sharer
of your Joys and sorrows, taken, leaving the
heart an old rum, where the chill winds blow
over a wide wilderness of desolation, the sands

once bloomed like the garden ot God. And

suddenly, right before you was an open grave.

it was a cavern down which went all your hopes
and all your expectations.
In the name of tbe Lord Jesus Christ, the Com

the Lord take tbat child out of your arms?
Why, He is going to shelter it better than you
couli He is going to array it in a white robe,

broken heart that Jesus heals. Blessed the im

band of Jesus wipes away the tear.
I was sailing down the St. Johnriver.Canada,
which is the Rhine and tbe Hudson commingled
in one scene of beauty and grandeur, and while
I was on the deck of the steamer a gentleman
pointed out to me the places of interest, and
said, "All this is interval land, and it is tbe
richest land In all the provinces of New Bruns
wick and Nova Scotia?
"What." said I, "do you mean by Interval
land?" "Well," be said, "this land is sun
merged for a part of the year: spring freshets
come down, and all these plains are overflowed
with the water, and the water leaves a rich de
pos!t,and when the waters are gone the harvest
springs up, and there is the grandest harvest
that was ever reaped." And I instantly thought,
"It is not tbe heights of the church and it is
not tbe heights ot tbe World thSt is tbe scene
of the greatest prosperity, but the soul over
which the floods of sorrow have gone, the soul
over which tbe freshets of tribulation have
torn their way, tbat yields the greatest fruits
of righteousness, and tbe largest harvest for
time, and the richest harvest for eternity."
Bless God that your soul is interval land.
But these remlniscenses reach only to this
morning. There will yet be one more point of
tremendous reminiscence, and that is the last
hour ot life, when we have to look over all our
past existence. What a moment that will be!
I place Napoleon's dying reminiscence on St.
Helena beside Mrs. Judsou's dying reminis
cence in the harbor of St. Helena, tbe same
island. 20 years after. Napoleon's dying remi
niscence was one of delirium, "Head of the
army." Mrs. Judson's dying reminiscence, as
she came home from her missionary toil and
her life of self sacrifice for God, dying In the
catin of the ship in tbe harbor of St. Helena,
was. "1 always did love the Lord Jesus Christ.''
And then, the historian says, she fell into a
sound sleep for an hour, and woke amid the
songs of angels.
I place tbe dying reminiscence of Augustus
Caesar against tbe dying reminiscence of the
Apostle Paul. The dying reminiscence of Au
gustus Ccesar was. addressing his attendants,
"Have I played my part well on tbe stage of
lifer' and they answered in the affirmative, and
he said, "Why, then, don't you applaud me?"
Tbe dying reminiscence of Paul the Apostle
was, "I have fought a good tight, I bave kept
tbe faith; henceforth there is laid up for me a
crown of righteousness which tbe Lord, the
righteous Judge, will give me in tbat day, and
not to me only, but to all them that love His
appearing." Augustus Cajsar died amid pomp
and great surroundings. Paul uttered bis dying
remluiscenoe looking up through the wall of a
dungeon. God grant tbat our last hour may be
tbe closing of a useful life, and the opening of
a glorious eternity.

Facts and Figures That
Like the tireless and undauntable mountaineer, who, hav
ing reached the summit, looks' back, with a feeling of pride
and satisfaction at the dizzy heights he has climbed, so do
we to-day take a retrospective glance at the broad expanse
of business we have passed since the opening of the spring
season. Though the weather has not been all that could be
desired, business was and more, Indeed,
"When to the sessions of sweet silent thought.
We summon up remembrance of things past,"
We cannot help but feel highly elated at the panorama that
passes before our mind. Our daily sales register tells the
story. Every department in our store looms up with won
derfully increased sales over the corresponding period of last '
year, and it would be strange, indeed, did we not stop once
in this mad stream of trade, and, like the explorer of the
sources of the Nile, searchingly look for its course and
origin. What can it be, is the question we ask ourselvesj
that actuates purchasers from near and far to pass the doors
of other establishments and wend their steps toward Fifth
avenue and Smithfield street KAUFMANNS'. Why this
popular tidal wave this unanimity of opinion this universal
destination of purchasers? We don't know. One thing,
however, is certain, viz: It must be a powerful magnet that
attracts these crowds of intelligent men and thoughtful
women. Maybe it's because we offer superior inducements;
maybe, because we always give you better value for your
money than any other store in the city; maybe, because we
show the largest stock, most fashionable styles, most depend
able qualities; maybe, because our methods of dealing are
the fairest, our maxims the most straightforward. .,,
Be this as it may, the fact remains that the people are
good judges, and, by the liberal patronage bestowed upon
us, clearly express their approval and appreciation of our efr
forts to please them. And right here leE it be understood'
that the same enterprise, liberality and honest dealing that has
characterized the conduct of our business in the past, will con
tinue to govern it in the future. Our policy of having strictly
ONE PRICE, and multiplying sales by reducing margins to
the lowest possible minimum will be strictly enforced. In
quantities we shall seek to lead in every line of goods handled,
but in qualities we shall aim to keep only that which we can
Opposition we fear not, but rather welcome. We shall
stand ready at all times to meet any legitimate competition in
prices that may be offered by "Going Them One Better,"
Buying and selling in large quantities we have no difficulty in
so doing, as the following few of the many bargains now
offered at our store will readily prove.
