Mr. Robinson's Sermon
We had the pleasure of hearing a sermon,
delivered in the First Presbyttrian Church of
this Borough on :last Sabbath by by Rev.
H. ROBINSON of Harrisburg. The text select
ed for the occasion was ; " Put them in mind
to be subject to principalities and powers, to
obey magistrates and to be ready to every
good Work," Thus, 24 chap. Ist verse. We
arti'sorry•we.cannot convey to our readers a
just idea of the merits of this discourse, and
regret. that it can not reach the oars of .every
man throughout the entire country. The ser
mon set forth, With the greatest clearness and
power, the duty of obedience to the constitu•
ted authorities of the land, nod the obligation
of all good men to give to the Government
their warmest support and encouragement
while engaged in preserving the National life
and saving the community from the horrors of
anarcltyand civil war. These views were advo
cated not on the grounds of policy or of., any
implied obligation of the citizen to support his
government, but on the nobler consideration
of obedience to the commands of Him by
whose will and through whose Providence
all governments are founded and -sustained.
The abuse of rulers, the fierce denunciation of
certain measures of policy, and the evasion
of the laws or resi-tance to their enforcement
were held to be, not only impolitic, but abso
lutely ?deiced, us they were in direct violation
of the teachings of the Bible and contrary to
the precepts end . etaMple given - by lhe Sa
viour while on earth. The mere words of the
text were sufficient authority to make it the
right and duty of a Minister of the Gospel to
inculcate obedience to law and respect to rul
ers, "and the earneituess and ability with
which the Rev. gentleman enforced its in
junction, showed that he was not one of those
who thought it a duty to rem tin silent, while
the most wicked and dangerous heresies were
advocated by the political gamblers and place
seekers of the Country. The earnest atten
tion which the large congregation bestowed
on the sermon, showed that they fully appre
ciated and approved the doctrines advanced,
and we nutieipate many good results front this
single discourse. Could we not have many
such sermons at a time like this, preached
with good effect in this community and
throughout the cntire country ? -Is there any
subject on which the telt:flings of the Bible
are more explicit than that, or obedience and
respect to the laws, and is there any class of
persons who could exercise a more powerful
influence in this direction than God's Minis
ters ? 15 hilt we have no words of censure
fur these who do not -peal: out for the cause
of our Government, we cannot forbear to ex-
press our a I nirat ion for those, who, regard
less of abuse and misrepresentation, boldly
declare, " the whole counsel of hod." There
can be no danger that disloyalty or treason
will ever umulfest itself iu a community that
is favored with discourses so able and oar
nest as those of Dr. ROBINSON
The meeting of "adopted citizens" in Now
York city a week or. two since was unani
mous in its expression of enthusia-tic loyalty
to the Government. But why 'adopted citi

of persons in this country, those who are and
those who aro not citizens: If the gentlemen
who express these loyal sentiments are foreign.
era, their hearty sympathy and interest are
most grateful. But if they aro American citi
zens why not say so? Why endeavor to em
phasize the fact of foreign birth ? Why
create more classes and divisions than actu
ally exist? Whoever is an American citizen
can have no higher title. And obviously all
judicious nteu will wish at this time to blend
as closely as possible the great mass of loyal
citizens—and to avoid classifying them by any
name of party or country. For .a.1.1-loyal toots
there is now but one party, thtit of the Gov
ernment ; bu.t one couutry ; the United States
of America. When the. flag floats supreme
once more we may remember that we were
born in America or Gettnany, in Ireland or
France; we may discover that we belong to
some political party that marches, with all
the other parties, beneath that flag. But now
all our hands and hearts are needed to hold
it aloft and establish it securely. While the
war lasts we are not Republicans or Demo
crats--we are not foreigners and natives—we .
are only loyal American citizens, rosolved to
stand by our Government and the Union, and
to support it always . in every way that it re
quires our aid, knowing that when the Gov
ernment falls, we fall with it, and that the
end of the Union is the end of•peace and pro's.

The Progress of Preedom.
On the 6th April St. Louis elected a Mayor
"unequivocally in favor of the President's
policy, proclamation, arming of negroes and
all," and the next- morning the Missouri,
DetnoCratjoyfUlly declared that "Si. Louis is
not only a loyal city, but a radical anti-slav
ery city." The same paper contained the
following - notice :
SLAVES JAILED.-A family of five slaves,
male-and female, was yesterday committed
to the county jail on affidavit of Ferd. Rozier,
Jr., claiming them as his property, and ac-•
cueing them of intent to run away.
It is not strange that St. Louis should de
sire to tree itself from such a disgrace as is
implied in this notice, and to prevent the
repetition of such outrages on humanity.
[From tho Mirsouri Democrat, Aprll B.]
Abolitionism has really run mad: Eleven
States abolitionized themselves over two years
since, in declaring the General Government
abolished. They abolished their oath of al
legiance, committed perjury, robbed di.:
treasury, the custom houses, forts, arsenals,
and post offices, and have been perpetrating
the "sum of all villainies " in attempting to
abolish free government and human liberty
itself! Their abolitionism includes robbery,
murder and treason in all their most abhor
ant forms. Their abolitionism airns ° at the
destruction of the highest national glory that
ever stimulated the hopes Of the patriot, of
the sorest guaranties of liberty that - ever be
girt the citizen, and of the brightest prospect
of, national intelligence, progress and gran
deur that ever gladdened the heart of the
philanthropist. From any guilty participa
tion in such a combination of fully, madness
and villainy, we are thankful that we are ex
empt, and :nay no drop of our blood ever be
fevered with such a hell-heated passion.
But this abolitionism is not confided ti the
South. There are several conspicuous chiefs
of this madness in the North, and they are
desperate in their efforts to corrupt our whole
population. Miserable adventurers,. with
every thing to gain and nothing to lose, they
are trying to prevent the constitutional au
thorities from saving the Government from
the vandal hands of the Abolitionists, - and
are doing every thing possible to give tri
umph to this consummation of all wicked
ness. The great prophet of this Northern
Abolitionism has boasted that, as a member
of Congress, he never voted a man or a
dollar for 01'6 suppression of rebellion I and
when he made this boast in New Jersey, his
audience nearly lilted the rafters by their
wild applause I
Among the other noted Abolitionists of
the North is Mr. Seymour, who has just run
for the Governor of Gon'uectieut, and who
has held treasonable correspondence with
his brother Abolitionists ut the South.—
Amoth ,, r is Mr. Toueey, who has been stum
ing that State fur Seyinour,,and who, as
member of fluehanan's Cabinet helped the
A bulitionistF, steal every thing they could get
hold of. And last, though not least is Sam
Cox," of Ohio—"glorious old Sunset Cox,"
as he was formerly known—who made a
speech in Congress looking to the abolition
of the Northeren Confederation with a view
to independence of New England, freedom
limn Yankee schoolmasters, school-houses,
and cil ilization in general.
All these Aholitiunists boldly declare that
they prefer the success of the rebelion to a
restoralion of the Union under Lincoln I
Saying thus much, we are authorised to dia
ler that they mean tar more—they intend to
prevent the restoration oh the Union and in
sure the triumph of their internal .41holition,

that is desirable to live for as citizens, of all
that our fathers fought for, and of all that
the oppressed of other lands have hoped for.
Call them, them, 'Abolitionists," because,
in the language of Beauregard, it will have
''a stinging effect."
Letter from Mr. Chose
The following is a correct copy of the letter
of Mr. Chase to the Loyal National League,
in response to their, invitation to attend •the
Snippier meeting :
WAsnmyros, April 9, 1868.
" , Gentlemen: Imperative demands on my
time compel me to deny myself the gratifica
tion of attending the meeting to which yuu
kindly invite me.
" You will meet to send words of cheer to
our brave generals and soldiers in the field ;
to rebuke treason in our midst, giving, in the
garb of peace, aid and comfort to treason in
the panoply of war; to maintain inviolate the
integrity of the national territory and the su
premacy of the national constitution and
laws ; to strengthen the hands and nerve the
heart of the President for the great work to
which God and the people have called him.—
For what worthier purposes can American
citizens now. assemble ?
" It is toy fired faith, gentlemen, that God
does not mean that this American republic
shall perish. We are tried as by fire, but our
country will live. Not withstanding all the
violence and all the machinations of traitors
and their sympathizers, on this or the other
side of the Atlantic, our country will live.
" And while our country lives, slavery, the
chief source, and cause, and agent of our ills,
will die. The friends of the Union in the
South, before rebellion, predicted the destruc
lion of slavery as a consequence of secession ,
if that madness should prevail. Nothing, in
my judgment, is more certain than the ful
fillment of these predictions Safe in these
stales, before rebellion, from all federal in
terference, slavery-has come out from its shel
ter; under state constitutions and laws, to as
sail the tuitional life. It will surely die,
pierced by its own fangs and stings.
What matter now how it dies?' Whether
as a consequence or dbject of the war what
matter ? Is this a time to split hairs of login ?
To me it seems that Providence indicated
clearly enough how the end of'slavery must
come. It comes in rebel slave states by mil
itary order, decree or proclamation ; not to
be disregarded or set,aside in any event as a
nullity, but mainttiined and executed with
perfebt good faith to all the enfranchised ;
and it will come in loyal slave states by the
unconstrained notion of the people and their
legislatures, aided freely and generously by
their brethren of the free states. I May be
Mistaken in this, but if I am another better
Meantime it seems to me-very necessary
to say distinctly what many yet shrink from
saying.. The American blacks must be called
into this conflict, not: as cattle, not now, oven,
as contrabands, but as men. In the free
states, and, by the proolamation, in the rebel
states; they are free men. The Attorney•
General, in ati opinion which defies refutation
has pronounce - d these freemen citizens of the
United States. Let, .then, the example of
Andrew Jackson, who did not hesitate to op
pose colored regiments to British invasion, bo
now - fearlessly followed. these blacks,
accliinated, familiar with the oeuntry, capa-
bin of groat enfluranee, receive suitable mili
tary organization, and" do their
. part. We
need 'their good will, and must 'make them
our friends by showing ourselves their
friends. We must have them for guides,
for scouts, for all military service in camp
or field.for which they are qualified. Thus
employed, from a burden they will become
a support, and.the,hazards, privationa, and
labors of the white soldiers be proper
tionablY diMinished.
"Some, will object, of course. There are
always objectors to everything.
Let - experience dispel holiest fears and re
fute captious or disloyal cavil.
" Above all, gentlemen, let no doubt rest
on our resolution to sustain, with all our
hearts and with all our means, the soldiers
now in arms fur the republic. Let their
ranks. be filled up ; let their supplies be suf
ficient and regular : let their pay be sure.—
Let nothing be wanting to thorn which can
insure activity and efficiency. Let each
brave officer and !pan realize that his coun
try's love attends him, and that his coun
try's hopes hang upon hi n ; and, inspir-d
by this-thought, let him dare and do all that
is possible to be dared and done,
"So, gentlemen, with the blessing, of God,
will we make a glorious future sure." I see
it rising before me---how beautiful and
grand I There is nut time to speak of it
now ; but from all quarters of the land comes
the voice of the sovereign people, rebuking
faction, denouncing treason, and proclaim
ing the indivisible unity of the republic ; and
in this ileaven•inspired union of the people,
for the sake of the Union, is the sure prom
ise of that splendid hereafter.
" With great respect, yours very truly,
"Hon. George 0 pdyke, George Griswold, F.lmq
and others, Committee of the Loyal Na
tional League, New York."
In a private letter accompanying the
above ;qr. Chase uses the following words,
the latter of which may well be adopted as a
motto by every Loyal National League in
the land : •

iline armed against his country: Let what
each frian thinks concerning the Republic
be inscribed upon his forehead.'"

LAW, "r
- Becks County Emulated.
It becomes our painful duty to chronicle
one of the sadde-,t, and at the same time one of
the most daring and damnable attempts at de
fying the laws and the Government, that, has
yet occurred in this section of the country.
To make the matter c!ear it becomes necessa
ry to enter somewhat into detail.
When the draft was made in October last,
a young man, by the name of James Hummel,
of Middleercek township, roisatortly entered
Tutu an arrangement, with Mr. Azariali Kree--"
ger, to go as sphstitute for the latter who was
drafted lute the service of the United States
This arrangement, was made. Hummel took
the money or at lea , t a part of it, and went
to Harrisburg, where he was---Jteorn into the,
Service of the United Suites and Mr. Kroegeri
accordingly dischargd.
Hummel remained at Harrisburg a short
tium, and then deserted, thereby defrauding ,
the Government out of the services of Mr
Kreeger to which it was entitled, and ;also
Mr. Kreeger out of his money, by not giving
value therefore.
This inert Hummel, together with some Oth-
er deserters. since the time of their desertion,
-have-hero defying the authorities - titl - rthreat:
ening to kill any man who should attempt to
arrest them. They however found it conven
ient to secret thetuselves„whenever thy, guards
We're if ioul, which fact wits duly heralded by
the Tory organ, the Selinsgrove TtineB. Thus
things went on until last Saturday, when
Capt. Cox, who is situated at this place, by
some means learned that there was to bo a
funeral at New Berlin, at which it was quite
probable that Hummel would bo present.—
He accordingly ordered Sergeant. Kephart and
an assistant, to New Berlin with instruction-s
to arrest him in Church, very reasonably
presuming that no resistance would be made,
and blood-shed avoided. But he was sadly
mistaken, these desperadoes were fully armed
for any emergency. The Sergeant, with hie
assistant, entered the Church, and walking
right up to Humtne,l, tapped him on the shoul
der, and commanded him to surrender, upon
which, Hummel drew a revolver and fired two
loads at Mr. Kephart, when the Sergeant fired,
hitting Hutnruel in the side, the ball passing
(it is said) through his lungs. He however,
discharged two more barrels at the Sergeant
after he was wounded. IViiile this scene was
being enacted, the friends and spill utilizers
of Hummel some fifteen or twenty in number
rushed in upon the officer, with revolvers, and
some, with their fists, beating and clubbing
him and his.-assistant and firing their pistols
at them.
We are told that there were some eleven
shots fired during the melee, of which the of-
ficer6 in discharge of their duty, fired only
Sergeant Kephart and his aid made their
escape from the enraged rebels without inju •
ry, except a little scratch upon the knuckle of
one of the fingers of the Sergeant, two ba Is,
however, passed through his coat and one
rested in the lining of hts •est, which ho ex
tracted on Sunday, without much pain. The
last news we have from Hummel, ia, that ho is
not expected to live.
Tirdse are some of the out oropings of the
devilish teachings of Frank Weirick, Jack
Cummings & co. They spur on those poor,
ignorant, deluded people, to acts of treason
and rebellion, and leave 'Chem to pay the fur•
felt with their lives, while these treacherous,
cowardly villains are in their dens of safety,
preaching up that we have no•Qovernntent.
Let the people take warning, this is a spark
front the volcano, with which the Tory Or
gans have been threatening us. Let the Gov-
ernment put forth its strong hand and nip this
incipient treason in the bud, otherwise there
may be bloody times close at hand.

They were ileseendai.ts of the Bret settlers of

. A Yourro Tinto.—John McLaughlin,
whose parents reside at Lafayette, Indiana, is
now twelve years of ago. Eighteen months
ago he enlisted in the 10th Indiana as a drum
met. boy. The marching and fatigues .of the
infantry service
_were too much for hie yoUng
limbs, and he was allowed a transfer to Col.
Jacob's Kentucky cavalry. Being favorably
impressed with the spirit and ardor of the
youthful warrior, the gallant Col. Jacob fur
nished him with a good horse, and assigned
him to Coulpany C, the `crack'• company of
his fine rernent.
John has proved himself a hero in the trues
and fullest sense of the term. Previous to
IiES enlistment with Col. Jacob he fought at
Fort Donelson and . Shiloh, and went through
both engagements unharmed He laid aside
his drum on both occasions when these battles
waxed hot and took a musket from a dead
comrade, with which he fought as bravely as
the most stouthearted man on the field.
He was with Co!. - Jacob at the battle of
Richmond, where he fought like a hero. He
handles a sabre, revolver, and revolving rifle
most effectively. lie was at the battle of
Perryville, where he received a severe gun
shot wound in the leg above the knee. It
will be remembered that in this battle Col.
Jacob, with a portion of his regiment, was
separated for a short time from -the main
body of his command, and while thus separa
ted was assaulted by a largely superior force
of the rebels, led by a Major, who riding up
to Col. Jacob, demanded his surrender.--
While Col. Jacob, was deliberating for a mo
ment, and just as the Major was about to lay
bold of him, John McLaughlin, our bay hero,
discharged his revolver at the Major, hitting
him in the mouth an 1 killing him instantly.
In the confusion which ensued, Col. Jacob
and his men escaped.
In ono of the skirmishes between, Colonel
Jacob's men and Morgan's cavalry, during
the last raid of that rebel chief into Kentucky,
the fighting — ivas very seVero. John McLaugh
lin was set upon by a stout cavalryman of the
enemy, who wounded him in the left leg with
a sabre. The blow knocked the gallant little
soldier froin his horse, and after his fall a
rebel soldier seized him by the collar saying,
'We have got ono d—d little Yankee, any
how.' But Johnny did net think so, and
quickly drawing his revolver, shot the rebel
dead. Just at this moment the rebels were
routed, and Johnny escaped capture.
Tribute of Respect.
