Brooklyn's Orator Asks Hebrews,
Catholics and Everybody
fKo Creed or Bisotry to te Admitted to the
Tabernacle of '90.
v Bbookltn, October 20. The Eev. T.
J)e "Witt Talmage, D. D., preached at the
Academy of Music this morning, his first
; sermon after the destruction of the Brooklyn
"Tabernacle by fire. His audience was of
vast size, and public interest was extraordi
nary. The opening hymn was:
God moves In a mysterious way
His -wonders to perform;
, He plants his footsteps in the set.
Anl rides upon the storm.
Dr. Talmage's subject was "The Baptism of
Fire," and he took as hi text Acts xx, 24,
".None of these things move me." He said:
But, Paul, have you not enough affliction
to move you? Are you not an exile from
your native land? With the most penial
and loving nature, have you not, in order to
be free for missionary journeys, given your
self to celibacy? Have you not turned
away from the magnificent worldly successes
that would have crowned your illustrious
genius? Have you not endured the sharp
and stinging neuralgias, like a thorn in the
flesh? Have you not been mobbed on the
land and shipwrecked on the sea; the san
hedrim against you, the Koman Govern
ment against you, all the world and all hell
against you?
"What of that?" says Paul. "Koneof
these things move tnel" It was not because
he was a hard nature. Gentlest woman was
never more easily dissolved into tears. He
could not even bear to see anybody cry, for
in the midst of his sermon when he saw
someone weeping her sob' aloud, "What
-mean ye to weep and to break mine heart?
for I "am ready not to be bound only, but
also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the
Lord Jesus."
What then did Paul mean when be said,
"Uone of these things move me?" He
meant, "I will not be diverted from the
work to which I have been called by any
and all the adversities and calamities.
i I think this morning I express not only
t my own feelings but those of every man,
I -woman and little child belonging to Brook
f lyn Tabernacle, or that was converted there,
I or comforted there, or blessed there, when I
look toward the blackened ruins of the dear
and consecrated spot and with an aroused
faith in a loing God, cry out: "None of
these things move me."
J When I say that, I do not mean that we
j? have no feeling about it. Instead of standing
Here to-day in this brilliant auditorium, it
I would be "more consonant with my feelings
I to sit down among the ruins and weep at the
words of David: "If I forget thee, O Jeru
salem, let my right hand "iorget her cun
k ning." "Why, let me say to the strangers
here to-day in explanation of the deep
emotion of mv flock, we had there
in that building sixteen years of
religions revival. T believe that a
hundred thousand souls were born there.
They came from all parts of the earth, and
ue shall never see them again until the
boots are opened. Why, sirs! our children
were there baptized, and at those altars our
.. young men and maidens took the marriage
vow, and out of those gates we carried our
dead. When, irom the roof of my hon-e
last Sundav morning at 3 o'clock, I saw our
church in flames, I said: "That is the last
of the building from which we buried our
De Witt on that cold December day when
t it seraed all Brooklyn wept with our house
And it was just as hard for you to give up
your loved ones as it was for us to give up
ours. Why, lite the beautiful vines that
still cover some of the fallen walls, our
affections are clambering all over the ruins,
and I could kiss the ashes that mark the
place where it once stood. Why, now that
I think of it, I cannot think of it as
an inanimate pile, but as a soul, a mighty
soul, an indestructible soul. I am sure that
majestic organ had a soul, for we have olten
heard it speak and sing and shout and wail,
and when the soul of that organ entered
heaven I think Handel and Haydn and
Mozart and Mendelssohn and Beethoven
were at the gates to welcome it. So I do not
use the words of my text in a heartless way,
but in the sense that we must not and will
not be diverted from our work bv the ap
palling disasters which have befallen us.
We will not turn aside one inch from our
determination to do all we can for the pres
ent and everlasting happiness of all the
people whom we may be -able to meet
"None of these things move me. None of
these things move you."
When 1 looked out through the dismal
rain from the roof of my house and saw the
church crumbling brick by brick and tim
ber by timber, I said to myself: Does this
mean that my work in Brooklyn is ended?
Does this terminate my association with this
city, where I have been more than 20 years
glad in all its prosperities and sad in all its
misfortunes? And a still small voice came to
me, a voice that is no longer still or small,
but most emphatic and commanding,
through pressure of hand, and newspaper
column, and telegram and letter, ana con
tributions, saying: "Go forward!"
I have made and I now make appeal to all
Christendom to help us. We want all
Christendom to help, and I will acknowl
edge the receipt of every contribution, great
or small, with my owu hand. We want to
build larger and better. We want it a na
tional church, in which people of all creeds
and all nations may find a home. The con
tributions already sent in make a small
hearted church forever impossible. Would
not I be a sorry spectacle for angels and men
if, in a church built by Israelites and Catho
lics, as well as all the styles of people com
monly called evangelical, I should, in
stead of the banner of the Lord God
Almightv, raise a fluttering rag of
small sectarianism? If we had 5300,000 we
would pnt them all in one great monument
to the mercy of God. People ask on all
sides about what Tie shall build. I answer,
it all depends on the contributions sent in
Irom here and from, the ends of the earth.
I say now to all the Baptists that we shall
have in it a baptistery. I say to all Episco
palians, we shall have in our services as
heretofore at our communion table portions
or the Liturgy. I say to the Catholics, we
JV shall have a cross over the pulpit and prob-
ably on the tower. I say to the Methodists,
we mean to sing there like the voices of
mighty thunderings. I say to all denomina
tions, we mean to preach a religion as wide
as heaven and as good as God. We have
said we had a total loss. But there was one
exception. The only things wc saved were
the silver communion chalices, for they
i happened to be in another building, and 1
take that fact as typical that we are to be in
communion with all Christendom. "I be
lieve in the communion of saints!"
I think, if all the Brooklyn firemen and
nil insurance companies should search
among those ruins on Schermerborn street,
they would not find a splinter large as the
tip end of the little fiuger marked with big
otry. And as it is said that the exhumed
bricks of the walls of Babylon have on them
the letter N, standing for Nebuchadnezzar,
I declare to you that if we ever get a new
rhnrch the letter we should like to have on
every stone and every timber wonld be the
letter C, for that would stand both for Christ
and for Catholicity. The last two words I
littered in the old church on Friday night,
6ome of you may remember, were "Halle
lujah! Amen I"
The two words that I utter now as most
expressive oi mv iceiings minis onrnrsti
service after the Baptism of Fire, are Halle-
lujahl Amen! "None of these things move
We are kept in this mood by two or three
consideration. The first is, that God
rules. In what wav the church tooK fire I
do not know. It has been charged on the
lightnings. Well, the Lord controls the
lightnings. He managed them several
thousands of vears before our electricians
were born. The Bible, indicates that,
though they flash down the sky recklessly,
God-builiife&oJhfm a road to travel.
In the Psalms it issaid: 'HeBSd.pwiq

since the time of Benjamin Franklin the
world has been trying to tame the light
nings, and they seem to be quite well har
nessed, but they occasionally kick over the
traces. But though we cannot master jreat
natural forces, God can and does, and that
God is our Father and best Friend, and this
thought gives us confidence.
We are also reinforced by the increased'
consolation-tbat comes fromconfraternity ot
sonow. The people who, during the last 16
year;, sat on the other side of the aisle,
whose faces were familiar to you, but to
whom you had never spoken you greeted
them this week with smiles and tears as you
said: "Well, the old place is gone." You
did not want to seem to cry, and so you swept
the sleeve near the corner of the eye, and
pretended it was the sharp wind made your
eyes weak. Ahl there was nothing the
matter with vour eyes; it was your soul bub
bling over. I tell you that it is impossible
to sit for years around the same church fire
side and not have sympathies in common.
Somehow you feel that you would like those
people on the other side of the aisle, about
whom you Know but little, prospered and
pardoned and blessed and saved. You feel
as if you are in the same boat, and you want
to glide up the same harbor and want to di&J
emoarK at tnc same wnail.
If you put gold and iron and lead and
zinc in sufficient heit they will melt into a
conglomerate mass; and I really feel that
last Sabbath's fire has fused us all, grosser
and fluer natures into one. It, seems as if
we all had our hands on a wire connected
with an electric battery; and when this
chnrch sorrow started it thrilled through the
whole circle, and we all leit the shock. The
oldest man and the youngest child could join
hands in this misfortune. Grandfather
said, "I expected from those altars to be
buried;" and one of the children last Sab
bath cried, "Grandpa, that place was next
to our own house." Yea, we are supported
and confident in this time by the cross of
That is used to the fire. On the dark day
when Jesus died, the lightning struck it
from above, and the flames of hell dashed
up against it from beneath That tearful,
paiuiul, tender, blessed cross still stands.
On it we hang all our hopes; beneath it we
put down all our sins; in the light of it we
expect to make the rest of our pilgrimage.
Within sight of such a sacrifice, who can
feel he has it hard? In the sight of such a
symbol, who can be discouraged, however
great the darkness that may come down
upon him? Jesus lives! The loving,
patient, sympathizing, mighty Jesus! It
shall not be told on earth, or in hell, or in
heaven, that three Hebrew children had the
Sou of God beside them in the fire, and that
a whole church was forsaken by the Lord
when thev went through a furnace about
200 feet wide.
O Lord Jesus! shall we take out of Thy
hand the flowers and the fruits, and the
brightness and the joys, and then turn away
because Thou dost give us one cup of bitter
ness to drink? Oh, no, Jesus! we will
drink it dry. But how it is changed!
Blessed Jesus, what hast Thou put into the
cup to sweeten it? Why, it has become the
wine of heaven, and our souls grow strong.
I come now, and place both of my feet deep
down into the blackened ashes of our con
sumed church, and I cry out with an ex
hilaration that I never felt since the day of
my emancipation, "Victory! victory!
through our Lord Jesiis Christ!"
Your harps, Te trembling saints,
Down from the willows tale.
Loud to the praise of lore divine
Bid every string awake.
We are also reinforced by the catholicity
that I have already referred to. We are in
the academy to-day, not because we have
no other place to go. Last Sabbath morn
ing at 9 o'clock we had but one church;
now we have about 30, all at our disposal.
Their pastors and their trustees say: "You
may take our main audience rooms, you
may take our lecture rooms, you may take
our church parlors, you may baptize in our
baptisteries, and sit on our anxions seats."
Oh! if there be any larger hearted ministers
or larger hearted churches anywhere than
in Brooklyn, tell me where they are, that I
may go and see them before I die. The mil
lennium has come. People keep wondering
when it is coming. It has come. The lion
and the lamb lie down together, and
the tiger eats straw like an ox. I
should like to have seen two of the old-time
bigots, with their swords, fighting through
that great fire on Schermerhorn street last
Sabbath. I am sure the swords would
have melted, and they who wielded them
would have learned war no more. I can
never say a word against any other denomi
nation of Christians. I thank God I never
have been tempted to do it I cannot be a
sectarian. I have been told I ought to be,
and I have tried to be, but I have not
enough material in me to make such a
structure. Everytime I get the thing most
done, there comes a fire, or something else,
and all is gone. The angels of God shake
out on this air, "Glory to God in the high
est, and on earth peace, good will toward
men." I do not know bnt I see on the hori
zon the first gleam of the morning which
shall unite all denominations in one organi
zation, distinguished only by the locality as
in apostolic times.
It was then the Church of Thyatira, and
the Church of Thessalonica, and the Church
of Antioch, and the Church of Laodicea.
So I do not know but that in the future
history, and not far off either, it may be
simply a distinction of locality, and not of
creed, as the Chnrch of New York, the
Church ofBrooklyn, the Church of Boston,
the Church of Charleston, the Church of
Madras, the Church of Constantinople, the
Church of America.
Mv dear brethren, we cannot afford to be
severely divided. Standing in front of the
great foes of our common Christianity, we
want to put on the whole armor of God and
march don n in solid column, shoulder tar
shoulder! one commander! one triumph!
iiie trumpet gives a martial strain.
O Israil! gird thee lor the light;
Arlic. the combat to maintain;
Arise, and put thy foes to flight.
We also feel reinforced by the thought
that we are on the way to a heaven that can
never burn down. Fires may sweep through
other cities but I am glad to know that the
New Jerusalem is fireproof There will be
no engines rushing through those streets;
there will be no temples consumed in that
city. Coming to the doors of that church,
we will find them open, resonant with songs,
and not cries of fire. Oh, my dear brother
and sister! if this short lane of life comes up
so soon to that blessed place, what is the
use of onr worrying? I have felt a good
many times this last week like Father Tay
lor, the sailor preacher. He got in a long
sentence while he was preaching one day,
and lost himself, and could not find his wav
out of the sentence. He stopped and said:
"Brethren, I have lost the nominative of
this sentence, and things are generally
mixed up, but I am bound for the kingdom
And during this last week, when I saw
the rushing to and fro and the excitement, I,
said to myself, "I do not know just where"
we shall start again, but I am bound for the
kingdom anyhow." I do not want to go just
yet I want to be pastor of this people until
I am about 89 years of age, but I have some
times thought that there are such glories
ahead that I may be persuaded to go a little
earlier for instance, at 82 or 83; but I really
think that, if we could have an apprecia
tion of what God has in reserve for us, we
would want to go, stepping right out of the
Academy of Music into the glories of the
Ah! that is a good land. Why, .they tell
me that in that land they never have a
heart ache. They tell me that a man might
walk 600 years in that land and never see a
tear or hear a sigh. They tell me that our
friends who have left us and gone there,
their feet are radiant as the sun; that they
take hold of the hand of Jesus familiarly,
and that tbev open that hand and see in the
palm of it a healed wound that must have
been very cruel before it was healed. And
they tell me that there is no winter there,
and. that they never get hungry or cold, and
that the sewing girl never wades through
the snow bank to her daily toil, and that
-the eJbck Jisver strikes 12 for 'the night, but
See that light in. the window. I wonder
who set it there. "Oh!" you say, "my
father that went into glory must nave set
that light in the window No; guess
again. "My mother, who died 15 years ago
in Jesus. I think must have set that light
there." "
No; guess again. You say, "My darling
Iittle' child, that last summer I put away for
t5WBtrrec06n, I think she must have set
thaTtghPtahre in the window." Nojguess
again. Jesus set it there; and He will keep
it burning until the day wc put our finger
onthe latch of the door and go in to be at
home forever. Oh! when my sight gets
black in death, put on my eyelids that sweet
ointment When in the last weariness I
cannot take another step, just help me put
my foot on that doorsill. When my ear
catches no more the voices of wife and child,
let me go right in, to have my deafness
cured by the stroke of the harpers whose
fingers fly oyer the strings with the anthems
of the free.
Heaven never burns down! The fires of
the last day, that are already kindled in the
heart of the earth, but are "hidden because
God keeps down the hatches those internal
fires will, after a while, break through the
crust, and the plains and the mountains and
Tfche seas will be consumed, and the flames
win mug meir long arms into iiie buies, uuv
all the terrors of a burning world will do no
more barm to that heavenly temple than the
fires of the setting sun which kindle up the
window glass of the house on yonder hill
top. Oh, blessed land 1 'But I do not want
to go there until I see the Brooklyn Taber
nacle rebuilt. You say, "Will it be?" You
might as well ask me if the sun will rise to
morrow morning, or if the next spring will
put garlands on its head. You and I may
notMo it you and 1 may not live to see it;
but the Church of God does nor stand on
twe legs nor on a tl onsand legs.
How did the Israelites get through the
Eed Sea? I suppose somebody may have
come and said: "There is no need of trying;
you will get your ieet wet; you will spoil
your clothes; you will drown yourselves.
Whoever heard of getting through such a
sea as that?" How did they get through it?
Did thev go back? No. Did they go to the
right? "No. Did they go to the left? No.
They went forward in the strength of the
Lord Almighty; and that is the way we
mean to get through the Bed Sea. By going
forward. But, says someone: "If we should
build a larger church, would you be able
with your voice to fill it?" Why, I have
been wearing myself out for the last 16 years
in trying to keep my voice in. Give me
room where I can preach the glories of
Christ and the grandeurs of heaven.
Forward! We have to march on, break
ing down all bridges behind us, making re
treat impossible. Throw away your knap
sack it it impedes your march. Keep your
sword arm free. Strike for Christ and His
kingdom while you may. No people ever
had a better mission than you are sent on.
Prove yourselves worthy. If I am not fit to
be your leader, set me aside. The brightest
goal on earth that I can think of is a coun
try parsonage amid the mountains. But I
am not afraid to lead you. I have some
dollars; they are at your disposal. I have
good physical health; it is yours as long as
it lasts. I have enthusiasm of soul; I will
not keep it back from vour service. I have
some faith in God, and I shall direct it to
ward the rebuilding of our new spiritual
house. Come on, then. I will lead you.
Come on, ye aged men, not yet passed
over Jordan! Give us one more lift before
you go into the promised land. You men
in miuuie me, uuriicsa vuur uusiness lacui
ties to this enterprise. Young man, put the
fire of your soul into this work. Let women
consecrate their persuasiveness and per
sistence to this cause, and they will be pre
paring benedictions for their dying hour
and everlasting rewards; and if Satan really
bum that Tabernacle down, as some people
say he did, he will find it the poorest job he
ever undertook.
Goodby, old Tabernacle! I pnt or fingers
to my lip and -throw a kiss to the departed
church. In the-last day, may we be able to
meet the songs there sung, and the prayers
there offered, andthe sermons there preached.
Goodby, old place, where some of us first
felt the Gospel peace, and others heard the
last message ere they flew away into the
skies! Goodby, Brooklyn Tabernacle of
1873! But welcome our new church. (I
see it as plainly as though it were already
built!) Your gates wider, your song's
more triumphant, your ingatherings more
glorious. Biseont of the ashes and greet
L our waiting vision! Burst on our souls, oh
day of our church s resurrection! By our
altars may we be prepared for the hour
when the fire shall try every man's work of
what sort he is. Welcome, Brooklyn Taber

Washington, October 20. Senator
Bansom, of North Carolina, has secured the
promise of the United Slates Marine Band
from the Secretary of the Navy, and of
United States flags from the Secretary of
War, to be used to add to the eclat of his
State's centennial celebration of her ratifica

will take place at Fayetteville on the 21st
of November, and Jefferson Davis is ex
pected to be present.
Many Republicans here are inclined to
severely criticise Secretary Tracy for allow

particularly to aid in a Southern celebration
in which Jeff Davis is to be the central
figure, but Mr. Tracy says he knows no

Catarrh in its destructive force stands next to
and undoubtedly leads on to consumption. Ic
Is therefore singular that those afflicted with
this fearful disease should not make it the ob
ject of their lives to rid themselves of it. De
ceptive remedies concocted by ignorant pre
tenders to medical knowledge have weakened
the confidence of the great majority of suffer
ers in all advertised remedies. They become
resigned to a life of misery rather than torture
themselves with doubtful palliatives.
Bat this will never do. Catarrh must be met
at every stage and combated with all our might
In many cases the disease has assumed danger

The Vain Regrets of a Sorrowful Hutband
OvSr the Needless Lots of His Wlfe,-and
the Warning ii Conveys to Others. '
Probably the saddest moat unhappy man In
New York City to-day is Mr. G. V. Remington,
who resides on East 33th street A few weeks ago
be had a beantlf ul wife and a happy home; nor
his ears arc pained by the cries of his motherless
children. Mrs. Remington passed through the
Summer,ln good health and spirits, but the first
change In the weather chilled ner, csuiedlier to
cough, quickened her pulse and brought on a gen
eral feeling of weariness. Mr. Eemlngton thought
it was only a cold, ana so neglected iu
"Oh! 'Why didn't Ido something before It ws
tot) late?" he exclaimed bitterly. "I knew she
was weakened by the heat of the Summer, all the
pores of the skin were open and she was an easy
Victim to disease, but I might have saved her If 1
had only assisted Nature in time, instead of waiting-,
and then sending for the doctor when it was
too late."
Nearly every man or woman who has passed
through the Summer months is specially liable to
the attack of this same demon, Pneumonia, which
comes so quickly, so unexpectedly and often ends
so fatally. Immediate assistance to nature of a
strong stimulant is the only way by which It can
be avoided, and It is for this very purpose that
Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey has achieved such a
national reputation and become so popular. The
dangerous, often fatal, diseases which attack the
system when It Is specially weak can be quickly
thrown off by this pure stimulating whiskey. The
highest testimony of the leading physicians oi the
land amply prove this, and the thousands who
have been saved from untimely graves also attest
it. Great care should be exercised to secure only
the genuine, as it is the only preparation on the
market which has the power to cure ana which
does so invariably, ,
To keep your feet warm and dry, especially so
with parties that have corns and cold feet.
