From the JTorth American Farmer.
Upnn the brown an.l far-o!T hills
ilic haze lies soft and blue.
Wlii'a nuts are dropping thick and fast
Vliere Summer wild iiowers grew.
Tli rnnpVs po!J an 1 crimson leaves
Like LlooH tainc 1 banner gr.'atn,
An 1 p-irple a-tnrs ope their bloom
Beside eaeh jiurp.e it.cair.
Tlie woods like sne grand temple stand
Ueneath the glowinsr skies,
Vriiiia down the lonir, dim isles, the haze
Like s!um!ricg incense lies.
No organ's deep, majestic notes
Come pealin?; on the air
No choral strain triumphant notes
Along these arches fair.
No voice is heard no sound, save but
The brooklet's rip'lin flow,
Or whistling email in clover thick,
Where scarlet berries grow.
Perchance some frightened rabbit's tread
May wake and echo there,
Or d owsey hum of honey bee
Fall on the dreamy air.
The sunflower and the golden rod
Their gaudy hues unfold,"
And seem as if .some Midas' touch
Had changed them into gold.
Th'? grapes in purple clusters hang
Upon the clinging vine,
And in the ori-hnrd, 'mid the leaves,
The ruby apples hine.
But through the forests, o'er the hills
A voice come whisp'ring low
It murmurs of the wintry winds
And of the falling snow.
The crimsoned lo'aves to earth must fall,
An J breezes o'er them siirh,
Oh ! sad it seems, that ought so fair
Should ever fade or die.
AVarea 1 on every falling leaf
This lesson most sublime:
That resurrection's holy power
Shall triumph over time.
For though the summer flowers must fade,
The Spring with sun and rain
Shall call them from the hill and vale
To bud and bloom arain.

with his eternal, unvarying click ! click !
Click! click! the polished types fall into

You know him by his works, who read

CO., VA., WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER
BEV. JOHN CHAMBERS.
The subject which I propose to discuss
this afternoon is: "Blasphemy and ribaldry
are being popularised in this country."
Tha first clauso of tho ninth vrrc of th.i
fourteen h I'lnpter of Proverbs declares that
" F':h no' r , y.,vh nt ."." L' t the stu-i-
'i t-f L!i! ory sit co-vu with his map3 be
tV:; lii.u. a ;. I with the anebnt records that
he cui teleci from the most distinguished
and wei!-funnshol libraries in the world,
and ask himself where is Thebes, Babylon
and Athens? Where are those magnificent
citie3 of antiquity? He looks upon his
map in vain. He comes on down in the
history,of life; he prides to see the lengths
and the breadths and the heights and the
depths of the mighty Roman Empire. The
utmost that he can do in regard to any and
all of these is, the discovery of a broken
shaft or the rcmnant3 of a magnificent tem
ple. The cities of Thebes, and of Athens, and
of Babylon, and of Nineveh seem to have
been blotted out of existence ; and the men
of those days, and the vast nations that
struggled and contended the one with the
other, have perished. And if this curiosity
should load him to investigate a little more
closely and he should desire to go back to Je
rusalem and take a lo k at her, and to watch
the progress of the Pilgrim from Ileivcn as
he made his way fro.n town to town and
from village to village ; as he met the U'r.d
man, or the leprous man, or the dumb man;
and now he stops to ask where arc those
traces? Man answereth, that magnificent
home of God, with its Shekinah and its
Holy of Holies, and all that belonged to it
have passed away He beholds the man who
went about preaching and warning the peo
ple. There he is in every home, in every birth
place of the Christian ; there he is within
the geographical boundaries of the birth
place of the Son of the Eternal God ; be
has gone to the remnants of the place of
His birth. There he is with the Apostles,
and what does he see? What meets his
eye? just one sweeping wast3 of desolation.
They have followed in the wake of those
great empires they have gone down and
not a trace can scarcely be found. Why,
my Irethern? IT'? -all this desolation?
WhjT these ruins? Why scarcely a footprint
to bo seen upon God's footstool ? There is

There is no reason why the material. that
built Bab3'lon should not remain. There is
no reason why the materials put into Thebes
should not le there. Why is all this ? and
why are these nations blotted out, that you
can scarcely find a remnant of one of them?
They were men as we are, they were intelli
gent as we arc ; but they are gone. They
have passed away, and everything that be
longed to them is gone. They are buried
beneath the rubbish of the earth, and there
is not a tear-drop that falls upon the grave
of one of them. And now why all this ?
The people became fo ils they mocked at sin.

ican people are known. Springing into be
ing as by magic, and m iking such wonderful
progress, we are the admiration of the
world. What is sin ? I can answer in the
words of Paul, " Sin is the transgression of
the law." Where there is no law there can
be no trangressicn.
There is Divine law and there is human
law. Sin is the violation of the Divine law,
as it is the violation of human law. Blas
phemy and ribaldry ri.se up, and the very
first indication we meet with alarming in its
character, is the disposition of many to
make light of s:n. You cannot at any mo
ment take a knife out of j-our pocket and
make a slight incision into your finger with
out pain. You violate law in doing that.
It is against the law of nature ; for nature
has her laws, which mu-t. not bo violated.
It i3 therefore a violation of the law, and
you are suffering the penal ry of that viola
tion. So when you come into o.-i.t! organi
zation. In the fir.-t pl.iee thre is the fam
ily. There are family laws, the violation o.'
which bring upon us trouble, vexations and
distress and nothing but trouble and dis
tress. Then you go into the community, there
are laws to govern it. We have laws mu
nicipal laws whether good or bad, they are
the laws ; and ifmen make laws they are
lound to obej- those laws as they, made
them. They mu-t do sa until they repeal
them and put better ones in their place.
We have general laws national laws. It is
the national laws which are binding upou !
every human being, from the Chief Magis- j
trate of the nation to the most subordinate j
citizen, they are obligatory on them. And so !
we have moral laws that God has given us.
. When, therefore, law in any of its forms,
ia any of its combinations, is mocked at,
treated lightly, scoffed at, laughed at, that
every time such things are introduced, un
less it is quenched at once, it will ruin the
people, and there is no cscajJ. Reverence

wherever and wheresoever, and under what
ever circumstances you can imagine that
men become reckless of law, disregarding it,
treating it with indifference, and looking
upon sin as a very small matter, then you
may look for the most disastrous conse
quences. Now, what are we to understand by fools
making a mock at sin ? I give you Divine
authoirly, which I have in' the 25th verse of
the 5th chapter of Isaiah: "Woe unto
them that call evil good, and good evi.l" Why
say good unto them that call evil good and
good evil ? Is it good to run the cars oil
hc Lord's day ? Is it good to drink ? Is it
good to drive out? Is it good to do a thou
sand other things which are done in these
degenerate days on the Sabbath ? Why do
they violate the law of God, and insult the
authorities of the land, and trample upon
the law of the -Most High God? They put
darkness for light and light for darkness ;
they put bitter for sweet and sweet fur bitter.
No man repentcth of his sin saying, what
have I done ? Sin, then, is the violation of
law ; law is to govern and control.
Now, what are we to understand by blas
phemy? Blasphemy, strictly and morally
speaking, is an indignity offered to God, by
words, or writing, or speaking disrespect
fully cr lightly of these things ; and this
blasphemy is constantly employed every
where. The name of God is blasphemed by
a vile and vulgar profanity. God, then, is
blasphemed by the light and indifferent way
in v!:ich his name is employed, and the light
: nd indifferent way in which His name is
employed, and the light manner in which
we speak of His authority and of His good
ness. Ribaldry is mean, lewd, brutal and
I ask you, then, whether this blasphemy
and ribaldry are not, everyday that you live
in this land, popularized by reason of those
that mock at sin? No wise man, no dis
creet man, no just, true and noble man
would do this. Human society, allow me
to remark, can only live, flouri.-h and raise
to great eminence as it is intelligent, refined,
virtuous. This you may rely upon as a uni
versal fact, that human society can never
ri.vj to any eminence, to any degree of em
inence, only as that society is chaste, elegant,
refined. I ask you, then, whether, in your
judgment in this respect, we are improving
in this country? My brethren, my private
opinion is that we are not ; that we are ev
en' day becoming more blasphemous"; that
we are speaking lightly of God, lightly of
His government, indifferent of the great
principle which lie has laid down to regulate
and control u.s.
Why, the very youth of the land arc lie
coming vile. This is as true as that we live
to-day. For example, respect for age and
station is declining rapidly ; and has been
for the last thirty years in the United States-.
I trace this condition of things as far back
as 1S29-30, and along there, when the pub
lic press of this country assailed the wife of
one of the greatest men of our land in the
most bitter language. Then a young man,
I saw whre these things would end, when
the Chief Magistrate of the nation was re
proached, rebuked and viiiified, and all that
was sacred and holy was assailed in the vilest
and the most cruel languyre the man
whose character should be chaste and sacred
in the min Is of men.
And oh, how cruel ! Itow malignant ! how
devilish must that heart be that will speak
ill of the character of a woman ! The very
children in the stm ts learn the leson that
th-y hoar at their father's morning, noon
an J evening fe-tive board. The lys coi,M
b' heard and the jrbis too. It has len r t
ti:ig worse from that day to this. I ?ny that
the very children in the streets use the vilest
vulgarity; and the lowest spcies of lan
guage is employed by mere children. This
language is convoyed to them through the
public pres, which commenced this tirade
of abu--c many years ngo, even before the
period to which I have referred. They
speak approvingly of the most vituperative
and blasphemous language.
The object of the press is to keep alive
party spirit. This, then, is its uce. In this
way you find that the very children in the
land have not the slightest regard for God's
authority. We are toj 1 in the 2'Jd chapter
and the 2Sth verse of Exodus that "thou
shalt not revile thy gods (that is the Judges)
nor curse the ruler of thy people." Now
have you heard this ? Is there a man or
woman in this house that has not heard the
very Chief Magistrate of our own nation
spoken of in the vile.-t, in the most vulgar
terms, and in the most blasphemous man
ner. Haven't you heard the very boys say :
"You old dotard, what do you know?"
and turn round and- villify the character of
the rulers of the nation. And that is the
very language that is employed. The Apos
tle Paul makes a statement in the 5th verse.
2"d chapter of Acts. It was written after
he had rebuked the high priest. "Then,"
said Paul, " I wish not brethren, that he
was the high priest, for it is written, 'Thou
shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy peo
ple.' " "Thou shalt not speak evil of the
ruler of thy people." Do they regard this?
These children a!out your streets and in
your houses are doing it every day.
There are men who do the same thin'
and some who profess to be ministers of the
Gospel. What are we to think when the men
calling themselves ministers of the Prince of
Peace, ministers of rurity, minister of love,
do this ? the very men who should be spread'
ing the Gospel instead of defaming the
character cf the rulers of the nation. This
is done inprcsence of men who call theui-

position of society it is countenanced. I
took up a morning paper, not long ago, and
read that a man said he would rather go to
hell with one man, than to Heaven with
In the name of God, what will be the result
of all this? It is not the blasphemer and the
vituperative man that uses the language that
is so terrible, that is so horrible ; but that
such polluted lips, that such vile blasphemy
against God should be countenanced and
encouraged and lifted up by intelligent men.
I remember taking up the J'ulh'c Ledger
a very truthful paper it i. and reading a
report of a meeting that was held in this
city. A number of the ministers of the
Lord Jesus were there. It reported this
that one of the prominent speakers, speak
ing of certain beings no matter who they
were said he would chase them to the gates
of hell, and you and I will make faces at
them as they go in. Now, in (.God's name,
in the name of everything that is human,
could such language be countenanced ? It
was, the paper said, applauded. Then do
you wonder at the drunkards ? Do you win
der at the blasphemy ? Do you wonder at
the lawlessness? Do you wonder that the
little boys have become corrupt to the core ?
Do you not feel that everything is going
to destruction ? Do you wonder why fools
mock at sin ? Think of it, a fellow-creature
standing at the vey gates of hell, and mock
ing as he sees my poor soul going down to
condemnation 1 My brethren, my Ameri
can Christian brethren, is that a subject of
laughter? I appeal to you in the name of
God, is that a subject of laughter?
The Bible says that "fools mock at sin."
The boys and girls, fifteen, sixteen, and sev
enteen years of age, have an impertinence
and assurance that are alarming. It is not
the children that arc to blame so much as
the people. Their parents take the papers,
and the children read them. Why, every
thing is turned upside down. According to
a report of the New York Herald, a church
in the city of Brooklyn was turned into a
You remember the recent tour of the
Chief Magistrate of this nation. I do not
say that lam in favor of this journey, or
these speech-makings ; but I have great re
spect for that office. I have always believed
and maintained that it was the most dignified
this side of Heaven. I like that chair in
the capital of this nation, first consecrated
by the Father of his Country, whose memo
ry I love ; that and the purity of his char
actor is like the jasper stone in the temple of
God. If the Chief Magistrate of the coun
try pascs through the country, and the
people, as he passes along, desire to sec him,
and desire to speak to him, and desire to
hear him let them do so. He is not the
President of a section, nor the Chief Mag
istrate of a few States, he it the Frctident
of this great country, and any insult to him,
any indignity, any outrage offered to the
President of the United States is an insult
and an indignity offered to you and me.
The children read the papers. They read
something disrespectful, something calcula
ted to excite indignation, and thus they con
trpct that spirit of hatred, and then a spirit
of wrath, that is kindling the fires, that when
they burst, brethren, it will be such a burst
ing of the materials of this world as will put

The safety and the security of the people
is to become wise and good, according to the
teachings of the Gospel. Notwithstanding
all this, God has said reverence my sanctu
ary. G"d s;id ye shall keep my Sabbath and
i-.-t p-..''nc it; but, nlaa! my brethren, it is
of but very little importance to the great
rr,ar.sr.f the people. I fear; and still, many
j rolf s to revere what the Bible says. Now,
when our Lord Jesus Christ was upon the
earth, he was surrounded with as wicked
people, perhaps, as live in Philadelphia.
His omniscient eye rested upon the world
aud upon the priesthood.
The Iiord Jesus Christ knew just as pos
itively what they had determined to dp wilh
Him as you know this moment that I stand
before you. He knew that they would put
Him to death ; that they would heap upon
Him every indignity ; that they would blas
pheme Ilim (just as they have lccn blasphe
ming in our country for the last thirty years).
Yet after all this, what did lie do ? Did his
pity, or his supremely exalted character, cr
his attachment for the glory of his God and
Maker and Father did that make Him fay
that He would be willing to go and stand at
the gates of hell and make faces at those
poor Jews as they were going out from the
presence of God and the Glory of his pow
er. Did he say he would rather go to hell with
this man or to heaven with the othr ? No,
He said, "Father, forgive them, for they
know not what they do." Will you and I
act this way? Will we love like Jesus Christ?
or will we rush on and blaspheme God? A
fool will make a mock at sin, and bring de
struction upon himself. This blasphemy
and ribaldry are becoming popular and pop
ularized. That the mighty press, that pow
er which bhould be emploj'cd for the per
manency and the penetuity of this great
nation, that very press should be holding
out every principle of justice, virtue, and
truth, that very press should bo spreading
God's gospel, and endeavoring to restore the
breaches and build up the shattered places
of the nation.
My brethren, do not suppose that I con
sider myself a prophet, I am an humble man
among jou, one of your number. I love
this country still, I want its peace, I want
its happiness," I desire to see the length and

I want to see God glorified, and his Sabbath

and Jionor law, and stand by and sustain law
and order, and virtue and truth and piety.
Then thi3 republic shall remain until that
time when God shall despatch Gabriel, who,
with one foot upon the land and the other
upon the water, will proclaim that time shall
be no more. It will, I believe it will.
If not perhaps in a quarter of a century,
and it may be the half of that time, repub
licanism will have become a byword, and
independence a reproach. In God's name,
in the name of all the men and women in
the land, in the name of the little children
that are born just into life, let me beg you
brethren, not to make a mock at sin.
Story of a Horse. N .
The superior intelligence of the noblest of
quadrupeds is well illustrated by the follow
ing statement of facts, which appears in tho
Lynn Reporter :
Almost everybody knows Alderman Otis
Ncwhall genial, good-hearted Otis New
hall, whose hand everybody likes to shake,
and whose smiling face is pleasant to look
upon and very many of our readers will
remember "Old Whiter," a horse which
Mr. Newhall owned for several years, to as
sist him in his lalor3 about Pine Grove
cemetery, of which he is the able and ex
cellent superintendent. "Old Whiter" was
a very intelligent animal, and knew almost
as much as some men. Many anecdotes are
related of this horse, which we have no room
for here. He was often sent alone about tho
grounds of the cemetery with a loaded cart,
and would turn the corners of the avenue
quite as carefully without a driver aa with
one. He was also often sent to the stable
where he was kept, which wa3 half a inilo
distant, much of the way through a piece
of woods. A note attached to his bridle
would inform tho workmen at the barn what
was wanted, and the errand being accom
plished, the horse would bo turned back,
always returning faithfully and in good time
to the place from whence he came. He
was never known to f ill on these errands,
nor to meet with any accident.
About four years ago, "Oil Whitey"
being eighteen y;ar3 of age, Mr. Newhall
sold hi in and purchased a young horse. A
man in Gloucester bought hira, and that wa
the last Mr. Newhall saw of him, until ono
day last week, when a stray horse strolled
into the cemetery grounds, and walked up
to where the laborers were at work. They
tried to drive him away, but several times he
returned, and finally, finding he was hot
wanted, turned his steps toward the stable
before mcntionsd. Mr. Newhall was absent
at the time, but upon his return at once
recognized his former faithful assistant, who
testified his pleasure at seeing his old master
in the most demonstrative horse language.
He was lean and sore, and but a wreck of
his former self, but his memory had not fail
ed him. Mr. N. had his old favorite well
washed, fed and cared for, and then turned
him into a rich pasture, where he found
plenty of sweet grass which he devoured
with evident relish. For a week this old
horse enjoyed the rest he had so well earned, .
but every day when he had finished his re
past, he would find his way to where the
laborers were at work in the cemetery, and
stand among them, as much as to sav that
he was ready to go to work airain. Two or
tliree davs since a man from Topsfield called
on Mr. Ncwhall and claimed "Old Whitey"
as his property. He said that he had bought
him of the Gloucester man seme time since,
to work on a farm ; that he had put him in
his barn the night before he came tj tho
cemetery, and in the morning he was mis
sins'. The old horse had made his way out,
and finding himself at lilierty, faithful to the
instinct, or reason, or whatever it may be
called, that was implanted to him, had
traveled daring that night, or early morning,
straight back, a distance of twelve or fifteen
miles, to his old home, as though desirous to
return to las former duties. It is gratify
in? to Mr. Newhall to believe that "Old
Whitey" has a kind master, who will see
that he is properly fed and cared for, a,
after twenty years of faithful service, ho
certainly deserves to be.
