1 eu pot, believe .that any compromisel
embraeing the - thaintence of the Union - is
now possible. . All ,that I learn leads to a
directly opposite belief. ' The strength of
the Reuellitm, is_ in,its military, its army
That arinv dominates all the country and
'all the !people within its range. Any
offer of terms made by cuy man or men;
within that range, in opposition to that
;army,a is simply nothing for the present ; 1
because such wan or men have no power
whatever to enforce - their side of a cow
promise one were wade with them.
To illustrate: Suppose refugees "from
the Son li and peace •then from the North
get to to her in convention, and frame and
-proclaim a compromise embracing a res
toration iif the Union. In . what way can
that compromise be used to keep Lee's
army out, of Pennsylvania? Aleade's ar.
my can keep - Lees army 'out of Pennsyl
vania, add, I think, can ultimately drive
it out of!exirtenee. - But no paper com
promise to which the controllers of Lee's
army are' not agreed can . at all effect that
aroty. in au effort at such a compromise
we would waste time which the enemy
would itdprove to our disadvantage, and
that would be ell: .
A compromise; to be effective, m nst . be
made either, with those .who control the
Rebel army, or with the people, first lib
erated teem the i dominion of that army by
the success of our own army. Now, al
low me to assure you that no word or in.
timation from that_ Rebel army, cr from
any of the men-controlling it, in relation'
to any peacefeemprouiise, has ever come
to my knOwletige or belief. All charges
and insinuations to tlie contrary are de.
ceptive add groundless. And I promise
you that'if a y such proposition shall

and kept a se ret.,from you. I freely

"Now, no ode can look on such dune

commandments, including the Saviour's
own 'new zonntiandioent,' and make it
out a breach of eithok ot them. The real
,and only difficulty IS the, great: firsein'a
lion of this aniusemeitt,.which renders i'
so difficult , of control. Yet Scotch Fres .
byterians have datieed for centurite ;
Swiss'Calvinists before their own cottage
doors; French peaSaants dance, and sleep
with quiet conscience; and cannot we .
Americans learn an, equal amount or self
control in s telt matters ? .
-There are one or two items worthy of,
note in the Bible view of the question.
First, that the historic danoing„named is
not condomned,.but, the idolatry or licen
connected; with it: NOW, that
dancing and sin have gone hand-in-glove
from the beginning of the, world,' needs
no proofs . but so has utliSic.and sin; eat
ing and sin. What we want is an eye
clear enough to discover what and which
is the sin., and sterogth of will or grace
enough to leave the one alone.while tak
ing the other.
"In the glorious lists of graces and
virtues named by the - various Apostles as
the fruits of the Spirit, dancing is out one
of them, therefore I have no faith in 're
ligious dancing;' but neither is it named
in any list of the fruits of the carna
mind. The . jurt inferefloc, then ; seems
that it has - in itself -no Moral clurracter
whatever, and that its right or u'rbug i.
dependent altogether upon circumstances.
"Note, also, that Solomon makes no
mention of 'a -time to He," or 'a time to
blaspheme,' or ..a time to be drunk',•—real
immoralities. The fadt is, 'the subject Of
what is sin, and what is not,-is still greatly
mystitied—hundreds of men whose eon
