and tonehine• address was delivered* on
the occasion by Rev. Dr. Harbaugh,
fessor,of TheOology in blereersburg,:
It is ost difficult, this solemn oc
dfor ode to speak for another, in
the way off loading or interpreting his
thouchts for Ihim. Thi i
e s one of those
overwhelming caveats which make one's
thoughts stand still ; and 'When we feel
the truth cf the sacred deplaration; that
the heart kneweth its own bitterness, and
a stranger doth not interaieddle with it.
For days past; throughout the land, friend
I hits'inet frieUd with, the feeling that, in
the presence Io:f so gr'eat a borrow, silence
lis the most elequent word!. Even when
one ventured[ic word of remark or inqui
ry, it was wittlthe vain hope that the one
addritsed mihlt be eble to express and
interpret for !him his own deep feeling.
When! theitelegraeh first dropped this

towns and vi/lages all over the landmen
'were stunned and paralyzed with amaze

hands of Ithe ;laborer; the student cast
away hi., penl and books; •the merchant
closed his store; the buzzing of factories

ceased ; busy streets were changed into
scene's of S i lbatie quiet, and over all
this express;:ye silence rolled the. solemn
sound of tolling bells.. The land mourned,

What is this all pervading and steadily

, 1 ,
I existigg unuterable feeling furnishes
I prOof that ,Ged, by the very - constitution I

eivilized-eyesi barbarian and Semilarba- I
riar-J,-as wallas Christian ages and na- i
tions; that the- highest possible crime is
regicide i 1 I
This crime is not mere murder. We
need only g•de the higher crimes to
see where!: this enormity stands on the
scale lof i•iiritil deprevity. ' The 'first
and lowe4gr i ade is common merder or
homicide, ns !when one man kills another.
Ne.etiaboie this we may place suicide,
wherein Mae' assumes the disposal of his

I patriCide, whleireiti man takes the life of
the father that begat 'him, the earthly
source of ililie own life. Because the
1 mother bears 'that' "softer and tenderer
name;" and be r r life belongs, to the inner
cirelelof consepratnd hive, we would place
next in the 'dreadful scale thecrime of
patricide. 4.fter this only' do we reach
i that tearful apex of crime—regicidel So
much as the State is above the family, so
high !above the murder of father and

To . unde4tand fully this crime of reg.

own land, the ' uler, an organ of-these
powers, may be deiignated by men ; his
ivreestitre is from God alone. In his
office Ole 1 ruling ifead of the nation is
God's I minister. He places him there
even tboueh it be through the will and
vote of the people, to be for the nation
His own organ and-ndministration of the
higher powers. ;When the assassin as•
sailed this Head of the nation, and this
right Baud of God's, rule on the earth, he
was making direct assault upon God's own
authority in the high place of His power !
On this throne of earthly power he struck
down 'whom God' had set up. He feared
not the attempt, thus to wrest the
ernment of a nation from the divine hand
itself, and by his own daring act first to
arrest, then annul, and finally to' change
the ruling Head of the nation in the face
of Gad's investure, and the will of mil
lions of Men ! ; '
Moreover tie act of thsregicide, is, as
far as ii goes, a stroke for anarchy. A
deadly thrust at the head paralyies for
the time the, Whole body of the nation,
and abrogates 'government; so that if the
whole Illation were in a state adapted for
the result, universal anarchy would ensue.
It is tfoly the virtue and loyalty of the
nation that prevents the legitimate effects I
of the assassin's will and intention.—
, 'flanks to God for that true, vigorous,
adjusting.virtne of the nation which en-
I ables it to rise from so fearful a shock,
and to move with such prompt firmness,
harmony and potver is the path of its
great and soleinl3 mission ! But this does
not abate the turpitude of the awful
crime; on the other hand it sets its enor
mity only into stronger relief, as showing
the high - Character of the government he
sought to :venni, and the generous loyalty
of the millions against whose vigorous
patribtisn th i s crime has been perpetrated.
SuCh 'being the character of the crime
which has caused our present grief, and
suehithe horror with which this crime of
regicide shcws itself to be regarded by
the Whole nation, in harmony with the
deepest Sense of all civilized ) and awe.
ially christianized, nations and ages, the
sorrowing millions may well this day lift
their barns to heaven, and ask, How is
such a crime possible ? Where is an
adequate begetting and sustaining ale
merit acrd basis for such a crime to be
I found ? Certainly it has been in no other
I way possible for it..vo appear except as
lehe nurseling and leg,itivate ripe fruit of
that enormous treason which has, during
the last four dreadful and bloody years,
labored to consummate 'substantially the
crime by, aiming it deadly dagger at the
very heart of th l e Republic itself.—
Whether formally, and by organized con
piracy or not, still essentially and really
;treason and rebellion is the legitimate
mother of regicide. The ; assassin of the
President and head of the nation,whether
thereunto appointed or not, is the organ
l of that treason which has its embodiment
i 0 the great. Rebellion. It was the bon
; eentrated lifirof that great treason which'
nerved: his arm and guided the fearful,
1 weapon of death. The truth of this fact
I beats to day with poWerful, harmonious;
self-atlesting assurance in the patriotic"
=Huai instincts of millions of sad and ;
sorrOwing, hearts. ; ; 1
How better can we ineproVe this sad
occasion than to possess our souls more
fully with a deeper sense of the enormous
crime of treason; a crime which, accord
ing to the wisdom of all Christian nations,
eau only be adequately atoned for by the
penalty of death. We speak our own
deep convictions, and we hope the con ;
1 vietions of all present, when. W - e, say that
no sign of the .times pin-tends greater
danger to the nation at present than that
morbid and 'unchristian spirit which is
in some quarters beginning its endeavors
to avert the.penalty due to treason. We
dread this spirit wore - than all else that
is ,before us as a nation. Sepia Men as
Beecher and Greeley,. who arc endeavor
ing to lead off in this miserable effort to
degrade and ignore the eternal sanctions
of divine and human law, and to convert
I the honest but unreflecting people to
their crusade against the true idea and
e.d of law and justice, are now emphat
ically:the enemies of the Republic. This
mawkish sentimentality is called "mag-
I , , .mity.
naea" What a misnomer ! Its true
name is infidelity to . ' the majesty of law.
Itlolleis a premium for treason ; and, if
sapeessful will be the, greatest unfaith- 1
liSss and cruelty I to, posterity of which
the rulers of our eventful age can be
gUilty. It will be in truth the laying up
of wiatb, anarchy and rebellion . for our
children, It will be a comforting prece
dent for treason in all coming ages of the.
Republic. It will show that treason and
rebellion b deserve and shall receive nb.
magnanimity, in' a degraded
sense of, that word. It will ever - show
that treason, so enormous in its sweep as
to people a hundred battle field grave
yards with the bodies of brave and loyal
men, has earned for.itselk only the right
of what is falsely called magnanimous
treatment. In pestiferous sentiments
like these, be assured, lies deadly poison,
which, if allowed to work its way into the
heart of our, rulers . and our, people, will
sooner or later take the nation's life as
effeCtually as the Rebellion itself, had it
suebeeded, • would have done, and as it
has: actually; intended to do-by bayo
net's, cannon and starvation 4 thousands
of loyal and brave tnen, and which it has
now again attempted to do as,' by despera
tion in the person of the- assassin of the
President. i Such sentiments never come
froin earnest christian scholars, or states
men.; they are born in the 1 hot bad of
sostalism, naturalism and huroanism they
arenot deep conviction but Merely shal
low irresponsible sensation utterances.
Thhy are founded on no ye erable wis
dom; they rest in no true christian prin
ciples—they are underlaid •by no correct
sense 6f the nature and neccessary force
andmajesty of law. Men who utter them
may be able effectually to harangue an
unreflecting crowd,but when they attempt
to lay, experimental hands totheguidatme
of the high and solemn interests of States,
every earnest and thinking man will ex-
claim :-----.Procit/, 0! procul esteprofan it

Tolask that the majesty of law be allow
ed to have its free course, against crime is
no spirit of revenge, is no want of mag
nanimity—betraYs no absence of mercy'
and ~ charity.- If so god himself would
fall under blame! Justice and judgement
are the habitation pt His throne. Human
g overnments are a partible and reflection
lo t f Fits own. Homan law is a reflection
of His will liftman justice is after the
pattern of His justice. To abrogate the
sanctions of and penalties of His law, is
to annul one of His own attributes. In
the lsuffering of 'the penalty of human
guilt in the person, of His own Son he
has demonstrated tothe world that His
mercy does not abrogite Ilis justice
Vain is the attetispt of, man to propose a
sickly sentimentalism 1 as a substitute
that shall outdo and set t sside God's im
mutable la* against crime. Man may be
tender, but law and justice are inflexible.
We have heard of judges who pronounced
the sentence of death on murderers with
tears—but pronounced it in firm faithful
n6s nevertheless. The judge who thus
discharges his solemn duty to the law
and society is twice great • in the act;
great because be shows that- he has all
the feelings of the man, and great again
because he has all 'the firmness of the
judge. -Above all his merely humane
feelings rises the solemn conviction that
the _execution of the law is absolutely
nercessary for the safety of society. He
!feels for the criminal; but he does not
suffer his feelinos 'to carry him into a cur
pt of washy sentimentalism. .He pit
ied the 'criminal, bat be pities society
mere.e It ~
is said that Washington signed
the death warrant of Andre, the spy,with
tears l This is proof that he would have
isplired even him had not a[liigher obliga
tion to honor the law rested on him. Let
our rulers study this example, that' the
majesty of law be not changed into a mere
mawkish feeling. -
,May not, in till:3 view, this sad calami.
vibe overruled in, mercy by an all wise
thhugh mysterious Providence, for the
future brialth and safety cf the Republic?,
Whilst we hope that all manifestations of
revenge may be checked, we hope at the
same time that the Minds of our people!
anti rulers may be more deeply awakened
to:n sense pf the absolute necessity of
vipdieating the law against treason. Vain t
is ;that policy which seeks to be. wiser
than God and mere humane than He !
Should it a:ppear that "the Minister of
God" does, pbear the Sword in vain," wel
tremble for: the future of the Nation. All

sense of the majesty of law,awaken among
us right views of the awful crime of trea-1

regicide—and deliver us from morbid
