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 AMERICAN CITIZENS 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 zens?" .There aro but two political classes 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. perity in every State, in every country, and in everrtown of the country. IlM.Soani of the foolish Copperheads in 11 lioois and Indiana have taken up arms.. They will be put down, of course, and all other plots of that sort be utterly frustrated. Gun. purnsitlu's order against traitors is working well. iferFrom Gdifornia we learn, that the 7 -11 n ion - -Leagoe-movenretst - has-Tb eetfititwitif: rated there by a great meeting at Sacramento city, at which speeches were deliyered by General NVright, Senator Conness,.GovernOr Stanford and others.

Elliott'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 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, ism. All traitors south and all their abettors North are Abolitionists, for they have null irig- but 'Atiolifiim in %le w—abobitiim oT till 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 WRY 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. ,practiCal.— 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, S. P. CHASE. "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 : • What said the Roman orator when Cat iline armed against his country: Let what each frian thinks concerning the Republic be inscribed upon his forehead.'"

COPPERIIEADS GO ARMED TO CHUM RIOT AT NEW L' EI?II A' 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 four. 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. WAR NEWS. The rebels made an attack upon our forces at Cape Girardoan on Monday morning.— Con. McNeil commanded the Union troops.—. The rebels, under Burdridgo and Marmaduke, were badly whipped, at last accounts we're in full rot rent.

Attempts had boon made to burn severaftrailroad bridges, bttt the Union troops drosM the rebels away in every instance. The President has received dieatchba from Gen. Grant and Adjutant General Thomas, beforo Vioksburg, dated the 23d of April.-- On the evening previous, six. gunboats and twelve barges ran the batteries of Vioksburg and Warrenton. Various houses in the town were set on fire that the light caused by them might enable the gunners to discover tho Fed eral vessels. None of the barges were in• lured, and only one steamer was abandoned. She floated down the river slit miles and then grounded. - All hands on -board of her were saved. The crew of one of the boats having refused to run the risk of passing the batter ies, there place was supplied by men who volunteered from an Illinois regiment. The whole feat. was accomplished with the loss of only two killed and ton wounded. The great land and naval force now below Vioksburg completely flanks the rebel position.

IMPORTANT TO LAWYERS.—The Pre sident Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Alleghrny county, Pa., gave notice, re cently, that all lawyers practicing in that Court, who did not at once pay the excise tax, should be suspended until such payment was made. This is right. The pillars of the law should always set the example of its observance, and we hope that the determina tion of the Allegheny Judge will' be emula ted by every judicial officer in the land. A DECISION OF IMPOIITANCE.—Whe (her the publication of nn official advertise ment in the German language is fully in .agreement.with the requirements of law has for-some time been a matter of-doubt-with legal authorities. Before the Supremo Court of Pennsylvania the matter was recently tested, The case was carried up on a cerW orari from — the - Quar being raised upon the road case from Upper Hanover and Franconia townships, Montgo mery county. this ease, the Court deci• dud that notice of the view, required to be published, must he given in the ord nary language of the country which is used in the judicialyroceediiigs. In the present case, the notice Was given in German papers, s and in the German language, and for thisreason the proceedings are quashed. lii coiihties where, the German hinguage s prehils, this decision of the highest judicial anthorities, is of much importance. This youthful hero, passed through a. city in Indiana, while on furlough was stopped by ono of the Provost Guards asked him where his pass was. 'Oh,' said he, 'the Col. didn't give me one, but just told me to go as all the rest went. But,' said he, pulling up the leg of his pants, 'here's a pass the rebs gave me; ain't that good enough for a littlo fellow like - me - ?' Thegittril tlinughtlf - was.

God was merciful to them in their last moments on earth in preserving their minds clear and unimpaired, awl making their suffering light and of short duration. They were ileseendai.ts of the Bret settlers of Cumberland County, and residents of-the same to the close of their lives. They served their Country with distinction in the war of 1814; in the numerous battle fields 'on our northern Lakes, and on the close of the war, returned to their homes whore they sp-nt the remain der of their days among their families and friends.

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.
