Hi . e.ii.lii.' . tu.iar ii.s.s iu our S, natlon.vlhistory, we should rejoice m hope. In th'S crisis ,t hope was the ground for action, arid action the ground for h"[>e. Else what meant that mov n.iit which a foreign writor had termed "tho uprising of a great people?" So a man C'HjId make his tdyos)ncraMes go so far as to deny that there way liope. But, were there really uny solid grounds for hope? fit. Ei'st, tho vigor and youthfultie's of our nation. Some of tho Kuropean countries haa I- looked upon us, probably, as a nation of the mushroom kind, mid taught that w had attained our maturiiy. Whatiicr (hey thought so, or only said so, he could not ? tell; but tho object of those European coun' tries was to lash that theoretical democracy in i. Kurojie which was tho practn u! democracy hero. Arncri1 ca had been and would be called the continent of results. Europe was tho continent of transformations. America, r the continent of results, received all the contribut one froni the other continent, and developed them. Tltero was no evil in our institutions which n taogered, really, the destruction of those ii stitutions. Hut, in spite of our institutions, evil had crept in. Another reason for the hope ol' whicb he had siioken wits the loyalty of tho people. Ah, tho jieople were loyal, an I democrat :\n'l republican stood back to back in the cause of liberty. They ha 1 risen, not to subjugate, not to destroy, but to preserve. Another reason was the hope in Clod, for withfx,,! tl.nl h,?.? of ? ' ,-v, .... ?w,'< ,>(.<ru useless. Wh-'ti Hie very lif? of the natu n was imperilled they should abjure parly, sink porty, and fly to the nation's assistance, i'horo were t oine men who, it they saw their brother dt ownii , would scramble fur their loaves ur their u bstot : .

The nation was on it* 1 knees that day, and on rising from its knees it would bo great. After an eloquent a'>j>e.ti to his c<iTicregatiin oa behalf of the Union, tho preacher concluded by <>tl r,nv up an appropriate prayer t" the Thronjpf Mercy, after which a hymn was sung aud the services closed.
