Dr. John Hall's Delicate AUosioo to the Walworth Parricide. Frightful Fruits of Misera ble Marriages. The pleasant sunshine of yesterday was again propitious to the piety of church-goers. Churches were crowded hy people or all classes, and pastors were gratified with the attentive and sympathetic reflection of the ir thoughts in the perfect masses of bright faces that were eloquently bent toward them in listening attitude during their discourses. Next Sunday it may be anticipated, however, that the fashionable congregations will begin to show some Blight depletion, the result of the steady drain of the watering places, which will then have become palpably strong. Then we shall hear somethfng about how people worship In thsse abodes of gossip and frivolity when they leave the stately and cir cumspect city behind them. Yesterday many mediocre and many able ser mons were preached in the city, some of the most ? notable of which will be found reported below. ST. 8TEPHEH'3 ROMAN CATHOLIC GHUBCH. Sermon by the Rev. Dr. MrOlynn? The Mystery of the Trinity? The Apostles' Commission? The Charter of the Cath olic Church. A large and highly intelligent congregation assem bled in St. Stephen's church yesterday morning. The recurrence of the festival of the blessed Trinity gave the pastor, the Rev. Dr. McGlynn, oocaslon to explain the fundamental mystery of the Chris tian dispensation. He took as ills text the concluding verees of tho Gospel according to St. Matthew:? "And Jesus coming spake to them saying, All power Is given to me in heaven and in earth. Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations; baptising them in the Dame of the Father and of the fen and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things what soever I have commanded you; and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world." The Church seU apart this day for the contemplation and honoring of the TRINITY OF VEttSOMS in the unity of the Godhead; and she appropri ately presents to us, in the words of the Gospel, at once the divine source of her authority and tho supreme and ultimate object of all our faith and worship, in the triune name of God. the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost. It is in this name that Christ commands we should be initiated into His Church, and be born again in the holy sacra mnt 01 baptism. Tills mystery is to be the su preme object of our endless adoration, and its contemplation the source of our perfect happiness in Heaven. To the holiest and the best of old, even those who waiked fnmiliarly with nod, this mystery was not revealed. It was reserved for tnat son of mart, who w as the meekest and humblest oi men, ami who yet did uot hesitate to say : ? ?THE FAT1ISK AN D I A!tS ONE." It was reserved lor lllm who came in "the form of a servant " to be the mau of sorrows and be bruised for our iniquities; but of whom His t cloved dlu clple in the beginning of his history tells us that "the W or 1 was in the beginning and the Word was with God, and tho Word was God; and by Him all things were male and without ilirn was made nothing that was made. And the Word was made flesh ami dwelt among us; and we saw His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Fataer, lull Of gr:ice and truth." What was hidden from the wisest aud the best of old Is now known, revealed to every little child. And fnitli In a mystery that is incomprehensible to the brigluvst seraph in heaven is required ev^n of the little child as a condition of the true mem bership oi the mystic body 01 Christ. If baptized in iniaucy others pledge them to this faith: and when at tne dawn of reason their Mother Cnurch pre sents to them the image of the crucified Saviour ? she must reveal to them the mystery tnat lies hid den under that symbol, and as she tells them of His sufferings she must also tell thenwand He was God." "l or so hath God loved the word that He bath given lor ir his only begotten son." It is only by rim revelation of the distinction of persons in the Godhead that our faith in the divine atonement can be lor us more than an un meaning formula, and tiiat we can understand how a <;od incarnate could offer true and acceptable sacrifice. The divine naturo that He has in ono with the Fattier gives to Ills sacrifice an infinite and all-atoning value. While the distinction of persons renders it poasible for such a sacrifice to be offered ami accepted by a <;od. the Church teaches wha' she has been taught, tnat there is iu the one, simple, indivisible, HI'IlilTCAF. ESSENCE OF TUE OODHEAD a real and true distinction of persons? the Father, the ifon and tiio Holy Oliost. In the (iospel of tliis day Jesus Christ, in addition to inculcating tne dogma of t tie blessed Trinity, speaks oi the absolute univ ersality of the Church. "(Jo ye, teach all nations," teach them all truth In all ages, in all places until the end of time. That commission, Riven to the Apostles, constitutes t,hc glorious charter of the Catholic Church, against which all the power of earth and darkness will light in vain. CAHAL STREET PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. The Kingdom of Uod-Mrmon by the Itev. David Mitchell. There was a large congregation at tho Canal street Presbyterian church, 17 Grecno street, yesterday morning. The Rev. David Mitchell took his text irom St. Luke, xvil., 20:? "The kingdom of God cocieth not with observation." The word kingdom, he said, was frequently on the lips of the preacher ot the divine Gospel. In this text the poor in spirit were spoken of as the children of the kingdom of <iod. Another expression was used synonymously with the kingdom of God? the king dom of iieaven. The kingdom of heaven was In their hearts, but unless they knew something of It now they would not even ultimately attain Its greatest glory. The disi tpies asked Jesus when the kingdom would come. Jesus, in reply, spoke the parable of the nobleman who went iway into foreign countries and lert las possessions in the bands of trusted friends. Another time the dis ciples asked, "Who would be the greatest man in the kingdom ?" Jesus placed a little child before them and replied, "01 stich is the kingdom ol heaven." "MY KtNfinOM IR NOT OF THIS W(jHI 0," Jesus Ml I, before the representative of the Roman government. Some of the disciples were waiting for tlte development of some such kingdom as that of the Roman government; but when the Pharisees asked when the kingdom would come, he replied "The kingdom of cod comelli not with observa tion"? that tn, because it was unseen, tirtlelt. The kingdom of God was apirituai; they could perceive this from the prophecies uttered in regard to It. Christ, in all ills pretensions to kiugship, set aside the iduaof being a temporal prince, in the ordinary MBliOtf the word. When the brothers who quar reled ai>out their property came to lllm and asked liim to decide tne quel Hon He tojd them that He bad not come here to adjust quarrels about prop erty but fo plant the eternal truth In trie hearts of men. What was It that drew men to Jesus I The eternal trath which *u la His teachings. Men of alt races, of all nations, recognized Jesus as their spiritual Icing. Jesus lived forevsr. and was Men at the right band of God. lie was the sun of right eousuess, around whom all leaser stars moved in their various orbits. His was a spiritual kingdom. It was a kingdom of sonhtant activity and ok silknt naowTH. It was ever lurking in the hearts of uien. The kingdom of God was like a mustard seed, which grew silently until It spread Us very branches toward heaven. The stream that made the greatest noise was the shallow stream. Who made the greatest noise In society t Sot those who lived for ] Jcnus Christ. The murderer, the parricide, they who undermined the very foundations of society, were always before the world. The robber, the parricide, attracted more observation than a thousand earnest workers lor Christ. The mis sionary in foreign lands and he who whs going trom garret to garret In this city? were they the ones who attracted the greatest amount or ohser vationr This was in harmony with the teachings or nature. Look at the acorn an the soil. For the lirst days it was not seen at ail. and it might he that many years might elapse heiore it would at tain Its perfection, standing before some Alpine mountain the.v could see how slowly day dawned oyer the world. Had they observed the progress or the seasons? During a few weeks God HAD THROWN IlIH M4NTI.R Ol BKAUTV round the parks and the conutry. The kingdom or God was not sees by their eye; nevertheless it was coming continually, it was coming successfully. Not a week paused but some new heart was won over to Ghrist. The kingdom or God was free froid all earthly conditions. It was not local, bill uni versal. A kingdom that was confined bv so trianv acrcs of soli was ever belore their eyes, but the kingdom of Jeans was not confined to this city or this country. It stretched up to the Arctic, regions, it reigned in every country In Kuropc. Wlmre.ver God's children were gathered for worship there the kingdom of God might be found. It to be found in all lands, no matter what complexion the sun might have given the Indian or Airican. He asked them to Itrt up their mmds to conceive for one moment the vastnes*. flic universality of this glorious kingdom of heaven. In tho conicutions that separated nation from nation it was alone that they learned the various national bounds. He thought the time would come when there would be no such strong demarcation as there was at pies en: between German, English, French and Ameri cans, but ALL NATIONS WOULO BK ON R FAMILY worshipping God. This kingdom was iree from all pomp and ceremony. He wished them to bear tu mind that the Church, as an organic body, was not ' this kingdom. It was a spiritual body anil tree from all ceremonv. It wns a kingdom not seen, not lelt, except as Chey felt It in the silent pro. grew of converting men to God. Its conquests were meral and religious, 'l'he Lord's promise would stand and be lulflllcd. livery day tiio king dom or Cod was coming. There was ever an on ward movement. It was sometimes depressed, but in this day in which they lived they would lie destined to see it coming all over the world. Would they be opposed to it? Then thev would be long to the kingdom of Snian, or hell, or darkness; and it was an awtul thought to be au eneiu. of lliiu who was their friend. .ALL SOULS' CHURCH. The "Strong Consolation1' of lhi> Chris tian?Sermon fey the Hev. Dr. Bellow*. The Rev. Dr. Bellows preached the sermon al the Churcli ol All Souls yesterday morning. He chose as his text a portion of the eighteenth verse, sixth ' chapter of the Epistle to the Hebrews. The "strong consolation," he said, of which mention was made in tlic Eplstlo was or a kind so marked that all good men could not fail to appreciate its full mean ing. It implied a trust in an assured hope. What t hat hope was he who looked forward in his dally strug gles through life to that day when ke would be freed from all the troubles of earth, to begin a life in another world of bliss and happiness, kuew full well. The reverend preacher then went on at great length to show what faith was to a good man, and how it sustained him in his toils and troubles, and how it made him strong In the assurance that Ulc hero below was uot all that man was created for. Real happiness did not, he said, consist in the mere enjoyment of the things of this world. There was beyond its threshold a something that the Christian looked forward to aa he plodded his weary way along, and which was Indeed a "strong consolation." The Idea that one was lu the enjoy ment of real happiness In the possession of worldly goods and pleasures, and that beyond them there could be nothing to make happiness more com plete, was a fallacy made evident every day by ex traordinary examples. What was money and wealth to him who had not health, or the beautinil sunshine to him who was poverty-stricken at heart ? What, protection were soldiers and guard ^ to the soul racked with the pautrs or a stricken conscience ? Some people wondered why It was that so many strange things happen iu the world that seem to them irreconcil able with the tdea or the justice of au ail-wise Providence. They consider i*. unaccountable how death and disease are often allowed to make havoc among tho beautitul, the amiable and the uutllal and the pure, while the negligent and the useless are spared. Vet all these things are a part and parcel of the operations of a wise Providence. Because the sood are orten blighted and humbled and made miserable, their affections reut asunder by domestic calamities, an<l are stricken in various ways, that is no reason why liie In this world should be considered less beautiful, less a tiling to l?e made bright and pure by self denial -and have battling with Its every trouble. All the evils that befell humanity in its struggling* only gave here below a strength and an energy. to the living i hat made men look forward to au assured liupe beyond the grave? to a life that would be free irom pain and misery. The reverend sen He man then argued to show what he considered 10 be an error on tho part of some people who looked upon God as a visible being. God was a spirit, he said. He was everywhere, and he did not beiieve that Ho was any where tn particular? that He was confined to any particular space. On the contrary, He filled all space and was as visible now through faith as lie would be when t lie soul of a man would be freed irom the body. Faith did not, m the next world, make the vision of God as a spiritual being any clearer than It does in this world. Those who iu praying to and addressing God prayed to ami addressed a particular body or shape, so to speak, as Jesus Ci.rlst, lost sight of the Father In the contempla tion ol tho form of the son. God should be wor shipped as a spirit, and it, would be idolatrous to do otherwise. The reverend gentleman concluded by asserting that lor the good Christian the assured hope to eternal life in heaven was indeed a strong consolation, a trust so sacred and pure that all the troubles of life tn this world became light and easy to bear for the sake of the happiness to cotuc. CHURCH OF THE COVENANT. Sermon on the Communion by the lie v. Or. Marvin R. Vincent. There was a large aud fashionable assemblage at the Church of the Covenant, corner of Park ave nue and Thirty-fifth street. The ltev. Dr. Marvin R. Vincent, the pastor, preached the discourse, his subject and text being Phlllppians ill., li? "Not as though I had already attained, either were al ready perfect; but I follow after, if that I may ap prehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus." "If any man," he began, "ever had a definite aim la life, it was St. Puul. llis hopes and aspirations were summed up in on?i word Christ. He expresses a desire that he may know Christ and that he may bn so lilted with his uncompromising spirit that he may be an aid to the Church. He tells us that lie might have been reasonably proud ol his lineage, education, endowments and grand opportunities in his pro fession, but that he only cared for the werk of Christ. He tells them that lie Is not already per fect. It is evident that while Paul speaks without vanity he holds himselt as A MO!>LI, CntUSTIAN. This relation is very forcibly stated bv Paul. He was grasped and seized by Christ. The Muiile of ol the racecourse was in his mind. He was in hot pursuit of wealth and worldly distinction when Christ compelled him 10 stop and change tliat iron aud indomitable will rrom the pursuit of mere worldly wealth to the preaching 01 those doctrines which Be has taught. A chosen vessel, he was filled to the brim. Christ was ins an aud all. Presenting at further length the characteristics establishing Paul as a moral Christian, he eniorced the duty devolving on them as proteasing Christians to make hlin their example. It wa* peculiarly appropriate to do UMs on a day like the present, when they were about to reuew their prores-?ion of i hrlst. Some tear that they ought not to cornc to Til K COM M I'M ION TABLB. The sense of failure is upon such. When any one proposes to stay from the Lord's Supper on this ac count ae dishonors Christ and himself. Christian experience Is not victory but pursuit Paul ad mits tn?u we often stumble, but tie says tt is only the proof a probationary existence, Inasmuch as they were likely to stumble it. was their duty to use all the raesns In their power to help them. It a little boy learning to write, because he should s|>oil his page wit 1 1 inots, should throw down his pen would it be right for the teacher to permit this' No; he would tell hitu if he were a good penman lie would not tie learning to write. And so the Lord's .>upj>cr was not lnbtituted lor FEHKEi'T PKOPLB, but for poor and erring tnen. Cbrl.lt never treat# His Disciples as perfect men. II was the duty of everv one to consider the whole economy of Chris tianity. Prayer is open to all aud belongs to the condition 01 striving, 'lake preaching, forexample. It is Dot the entertainment of congenial minds, it asmiBies that Christian men need instruction. It is a very false idea that the church Is a sort of a ?alnt ft rest, where safe souls look down upon their brethren struggling In the valley. Consider the Holy Sacrament, we cannot approach It too seriously. It is a soldier's rations, not a victor's feast. It was in this spirit that the Jews ate th<> Passover. It was Instituted because of our weakness. Christ knew that, try m they would, they would forget nis face. It was for FOBarrrtTL sorts tbat this ordinance wan Inatttated. If in their sclf examinations they had aakod themselves If they were wholly converted to Christ and felt that they were not, and for thin reason considered them selves unfit to participate in the Lord's Supper, let tncm remember that there are two kinds or conviction? as an act of the will and as a consum mation of that act. It is like a man enlisting as a soldier. The new dangers and discomforts make him sigh for a happy home, bnt bis enlistment now keeps him in his part through danger and ex posure. Ills loyalty remains nnshaken, and this is like the Christian. Temptations may often assail him and they may frighten him, but if he stands li rm he Is a a true soldier. In conclusion he urged that Christ was tue author of their faith and that lie would be their finisher. ST. PAUL'S METH0DI8T EPISCOPAL CHURCH. The BaildiafUjt of Character? Christ the Only Sure foondatioa for the Edlflee-.Msn the San of All His Acts on Barth-Scimon by Dr. Com. The Her. Dr. Cyrus D. Fobs, pastor of the St. Paul's Metnodist Episcopal church, on Fourth ave une, preached to a large and attentive congrega tion last evening from the passage found in the twentieth verse of the Epistle of Jude "But ye, beloved, bonding up yourselves on your most holy faith." lie said every man is building a house In wliioh he must Uve forever. That house is his own character. There are many builders who, In the prosecution of their work for 01 hers, may slight it, but ne is indeed a foolish man who neglects the proper construstion of a house for Ids own use. This illustration is round throughout the Scriptures. The Saviour uses it In the closing paragraphs or the Sermon on the Mount, where he speaks of the wise man who built IiIb house upon a rock. It 1b a favorite illus tration of the Apostle Paul, who, in his Kplstle to the Corinthians, says ^"Accord ing to the grace of God, which Is given unto me as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation and another buitdeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon." In the study of architecture there are several things to be considered. There are the plan, the foundation, the materials, the workmanship and the location. All of these are essential to the per fect structure. In accordance as its use is to be so is the class of the edifice. And, first, the skill of the architect is called on to prepare the plan and to lay the building in its entirety before him lor whom it is to be constructed. Tins accomplished, the location, the foundation ami materials are duly considered. The speaker then proceeded to show that any defect in the five points mentioned became fatal to the structure uiuf the consequent necessity lor care in every one, ami t hen drew an analogy between this ana tlm building-up of character, which every man, either lor good or evil, must do for himself. In very many instances the uiateilals and workmanship seem very lair, as represented by SALESMEN AN i> CASI1IBRS in the business world, who, perhaps, go on for years respected anil esteemed by tho community, and yet, in the end, a fault 111 the construction is manifested somewhere, and what seemed so beau tiful and well-proportioned comes crashing to t tie I ground, leaving only a shapeless mass of ruins. : He snowed tho necessity of a carelullv prepared i plan of life as a requisite for the building-up of j character, the planting of a firm foundation, the j care 111 the selection of materals and in the work- | manship, and udded:? "I submit that we have reached a point when we are called ou to build up THIS I) ASK OK CHRISTIANITY. He read from the context to show that we are building under the eyes of God. Every person In the Holy Trinity as therein stated is assisting us This should be carried home to our consideration. Those who have built upon any other loundation have found their endeavors useless, and in the clos ing scene of life have cried ont, with Solomon, j "All is vanity and vexation of spirit, and there is no prophet under tho sun." After re ferring to the fact that the edifice mini is constantly constructing can only be occupied by himself and one other, that is, the spirit oi' good or evil, he added, that edifice is man's sell, and it is what he lias made it. He cannot get a way from it, and it will remain with him forever. This is well stated in the concluding chapter of Revela tions "He that is unjust let him be unjust still, aud he that is riglitcous let him be righteous still.'' The acta of man's life can never be hid, for aside from the book or remembrance, in the final day, he will stand belore (Jod THK SUM OF HIS LABORS, whether for good or evil, while upon earth. Asa man sows so shall he reap; that Is, of the thing he \ sows hlutll ha reap; and, in illustration of thls.no i more terrible idea was ever suggested than that the miser should retain his avarice, the licentious I man his lust without tho privilege of indulging in ! these passions.

'FIFTH AVENUE PKE3BTTERIAN CHUECH. Dr. Hall's Sermon? 1, lie n Perpetual Ronnil of Chaage, Full of Interest and Vurieiy? The Married State? Allusion i to the Keeent Parricide?1 The Dutien of ! Parent*? The Obligations of Public ! Men. The Rev. Dr. Johu Hall preached yesterday at the Filth Avenue Presbyterian church to a large con gregation. After the usual services and prayers (the supplication beseeching a providential dispen sation or wisdom to the President of the United states and the preservation in ways or integrity and freedom from corruption those having the ad ministration of power, receiving u fervent re , spouse) 1*. Hall took his text from the Book of | Joshua, third chapter and concluding words of the fourth verse? "For ye have not pasted this way heretofore." It so came to pass, he said, that some things in life which bore a common and fa i miliar aspect, came to be endowed with novelty 1 and beauty when one was placed in new conditions ' aud relations to them, and so it was in the mani- 1 Testations of the precious words which God had j i given them. Some of them seemed common aud , or no special application until it pleased God to < change the surrounding conditions and relations. , The text which he had read partook, lie thought, [ j of thH general character, and admitted of appltca- ' | tion to a numberless series of conditions and ? I changes. Life was made up of continual progress | from change to change ; they were not living in the 1 present, but rather in ihe future, and their nands, I like those of the climbers, were ever stretched above their heads to aid them. ITTWABP ASP ONWAHD. They were not, however, to regard this as a sign of man's unhappy and unsatisfied condition, but should rather take it as a proof of God's wisdotn and goodness. There was no sameness in life, no dull monotony ; life was ma>le lull of intercut be cause It was full of variety. They might pervert this feeling in tneir natures, might grow pettish and dissatisfied aud might strike their heads agalust THE BARS OF CTECTM STANCH that God placed around them, but it was, ncverthe- I less, tho fact that they were ever passing from such change to change that the text was always i applicable? "Tc have not passed this way hereto- 1 1 rore." The next general remark litcli ne would i make in expounding the text, was that ror < all these steps and changes God had ; fixed special times and circumstances. When these words were spoken to the people 1 oi Israel they were about to enter the promised I ' land. The pillar of lire had been withdrawn and 1 they Were left to seek guidance by such ordinary ' means as it pleased God to give. Even so, through I all their changes, they might be sure that guidance I was provided ir they only sought it oi God. They [ should cultivate courage and constancy and be < | steadfast to the end. Among the many cbaugns of life to which tne text applied, Wiere was scarcely I ! one of greater Importauce or carrying with it more I Sac ted duties and obligations than mat or young people about to enter the married state. How often were they prepared to enter such state in 1 the true spirit of the text, living each lor the other ! and both for Hod f How often, rather, did Lot such ! marriages result, if not in. BfCIl BLOODY TBAflEniF* as they had seen in the city last week, at least. In I lifelong miseries and regrets? How often, instead 1 of resembling two streams blending harmoniously 1 (done, .did they not find married life rather like 1 two frozen pools? cold, stagnant and dead f In 1 this aew relationship of life, in thus entering on a i j way not passed heretofore, the Divine guidance ! was especially necessary. Equally important was ! the relationship of life into which parents entered. | They had to guide a young life, to check Its temper and restrain its passions. To them was committed the important task of bringing the VOrNO, PLASTIC character into a right mould, so that It might have symmetry of form and be without flaw. In that most dliliou It task lu which ther could be engaged they entered upon a way not paaaed heretofore, and ao should loot to God for guidance and assistance. The worda of the text might be alao addressed with great propriety to those having to undertake im portant public duties. It ao happened that such persons wero oiten strongly tempted to throw off all responsibility, to abandon their puoltc duties, because of censure and disapproval. They orten lotiud their errors noted and their motives mis interpreted, and were, in consequence, tempted to abandon the duttea which they had undertaken. But that waa not the wisest coarse to follow. Who ought to adhere ateadlaatly to hla duties, and who oaght to display true public spirit, if not the Christian man? Recently a number of OPKIGIAL APPOINTMENTS had been made, some of the persons appointed being men ot tfiown religion, and It remained to be tested in the eyes of the United States whether they would be able to put down corruption. To them be would say that they nad entered on a new way not passed heretofore, and would exhort them to seek guidance from Him who could make them mighty to KEPIIESS VBNAI.ITT and to uphold tliiit widen Is true and good. In conclusion. Dr. Hall reminded his bearers that the words of the text were spoken to the laruelitea wnen they were about to cross the Jordan into the Promised Land. They, too, would come to cross the Jordan? the river of death? into the Land of Promise, and he exhorted thetn to preparedness for th.it solemn moment, and not to rely on snatch ing a hasty introduction to Christ iu the last trem ulous hour oi existeuce. 8T. PATRIOK'8 CATHEDRAL The Church Militant? Her Endless Strag gles and Victories? The Successor* of the Piaherman Reviewed by Bishop I<jrnch? Collection tor the Pope? High mass was celebrated yesterday by Father McNamee. The choir, under Professor a. Schtuits, rendered lionerafl'* mass in C major. It being Trinity Sunday, a collection was taken up in aid of the Holy Father, which, owing to Bishop Lynch's discourse. may be presumed tg^ have far exceeded any of previous years. It speaks ill for tho de votedness of the parishioners to have subscribed only $800 on former occasions, Alter the chanting of the "Veul Creator" the Right Rev. Dr. Lynch. Bishop of Charleston, ascended the pulpit, and, huvlng read the Gospel or the day, said that he would not speak on the great mystery which the Church commemorated? the mystery of the Holy Trinity? but lie would say a lew words in relation to the Holy Father. The oration was pregnant with historic lore and vivid pictures of what was achieved by tne Koman pou tills in by gone times. He alluded in very feeling terms to the present Pope, and was digulAcdly severe on THK LAWS OP (1 KllMANY, which deprive catholics or religious liberty. To do justice to the discourse it would lie necessary to report it in full. From age to age the faithful have substantially manifested their unity by supporting the llolv ^ee; but. never before did the'father of the faithful make so powerful or so tenner an appeal to tiie charity of his children than he did on this occasion. He appealed to them under circum stances of heart-rending afflictions, which forcibly call to miDd the fierce struggles of the Church iu Its earliest existence. Long centuries ago the na tions wore plunged into the depths of paganism, ami the world wan full of tollies and disorders and inutilities. Everything was in contusion and men worshipped images of metal aud stone. In the midst of this disorganization the supreme God sent llis beloved Son to recall meufroin their evil wajs and to leave behind iilm thewiol.v Church to be the guide of man uutll the end of time. Then the king doms and empires AKKAYED THEMSELVES AGAINST this Church; national pride combated her in her onward march. We know the history of the for midable st rug^ies which she was compelled to un dergo duriag the Hist three centuries. The man who aat upon the imperial throne of Rome lifted his arm against her; and, long aud fierce though the struggle was, she never let fall the banner of the cross. Constant ine himself became a Chris tian. Then it was that Christianity achieved a brilliant triumph; but her battles were not yet at an end. The proud rulers of the earth sought again to subdue her, and to com pel her to change her laws. But tho Church could yield notliing to error, and her career was one of incessant conquest. Amid all these struggles against the powers of darkness there was one prominent Individual who stood forth? the pastor of the rniversal Church. The very first successor or Christ, alter having witnessed the beheading or Paul, was single n out for destruction; and, in sight of the Seven Hills, he was crucified, like lus Master. In tho sixth persecution, which w?s the hitherto most bloody, tne cruel Emperor determined to rttST THE CHRISTIANS through the caves beneath the ground, to annihi late them, t o destroy tlfe Pontiff and to prevent tho election or a successor. Decius would rather have lost his throne than witness the election or a suc cessor to the fisherman. And for two long Tears the clergy were unable to come together, but they at length bit Med the designs of tlieir enemies and kept intact the Hue Of pontiffs. From that day to the present how many pious popes liavo there not been cast into prison or sent info exile for their zealous labors! Bur, despite all opposition, the banner of truth which was raised on the day of Pentecost has never yet gone down. In this our own day the Supreme Pontiff lias witnessed the establishment of a new empire in the promulga tion of laws equal to those ot JULIAN THE APOSTATE. And even Italy, the land which ought to be tne protector of the pastor, has had a hand in wrest ing from him his little dominion. That dominion . was only a small portion or Italy, and Italy is but a small part of Europe. Its government was the most ancient, in existence, venerable lor its dignity, venerable for the reputa tion of Its members, venerable for the justice of its laws. Iu the face oi these facts might com bated right, and Is victorious, but only for the time being. The conquest gained over right can not endure forever. If ever there was a day which ought to have appeared dark to the eyes of politicians if was the day which ushered in the present century. Then it seemed as If the days of Deelus had returned. The Cardinals were forbid den to assemble, the preceding Pontiff had ex pired in capitivity and Rome was In the possession of hostile hands. Nevertheless, the Church eventu ally overcame all opposition. We need have no lears as to what the final Issue of the present state of affairs will be. Iu Home to-day THE GOVERNMENT OF ITALY is making laws, not only in opposition to the. laws of morality, but destructive, as far as possible, of the Church itscir. And the tender-hearted pontiff is a prisoner in the Vatican, and dare not put his loot in the streets ot the city. Only a few days ago a cardinal was maltreated by the people. The infuriated populace are not content with this, bnt they arc crying out war against everything sacred? war against the religious houses, war against cod Himself. But the Holy Father remains strong in THK C0N8CI0C8NS88 OF RIGHT, and right must tie triumphant In tne end. Iff will also be strengthened by the Knowledge that he. has the sympathy and support of the entire catholic world in these his days oi affliction. From this very pulpit, some time ago, went lorth the soul-srlrring words of sympathy from the glorious prelate or New York which were borne in print to the re motest bounds of the earth and sent a thrill through the entire Christian world. They evoked a spirit and a feeling which are not yet extin guished, and which, the speaker trusted, will be manifested not mereKy by pecuniary contributions, but by continued aud fervent prayer for the safety of the venerable Pontiff, the restoration of his rights and the peace aud prosperity of the uni versal Church. COLLEGIATE REFORMED DUTCH CHURCH. The Rfv. Or. William Ormiitnn on the Saving Power of Uod. The Rev. Dr. Ormisiori preached yesterday morn, ing at the Collegiate Reformed Dutch church, on Filth avenue, at tho corne>r of Twenty-ninth street, from the text (Epistle of Paul to the Ephealaus, i? 19) :? "What Is the exceeding greatness of His power to us who believe?" The prcaaher began by explaining the context and -by showing the cir cumstances under which Panl wrote these words, it was not an easy thing even lor cod to save a ruined world. The salvation of a human soul from the ruin of perdition is the grandest manifestation or the power of the Almighty. This power is analo gous to that which brought the Lord Jesus from the grave and raised Him to power and eternal glory. This is the spirit of tMr simile used by the apostle Paul in that Cod reaches down from heaven ; and raises each poor soul which is added to the I kingdom. Each soul to-day allied to Cod has been as much the direct agency of divine power as if the body had been raised from the grave. There is not j it person living who has been pierced by the ar- 1 rows ot divine love but has felt that the Khaft came from the divine bow. IT IS VKKY ntRb TO !K> RIGHT. It is like rolling u stone up hill and finding it roll back each time. The discouragements in the first of a christian's life are terrible. The death, burial and resurrection of Christ is per haps the most clearly proved of any fact Iti Biblical history. The power that could raise the dead can raise an* or us. His resurrection Is a type of ours, for John says that "when ?e see Him we shall be i like Him.-' As He was raised, so shall wc b?; if we ! suffer with Him we shall relgu with iiim. The near ness of Christ to humanity can be seen from j the manger to the rtnal leavetaking of the ascension. As a babe In Bethlehem He was so charming that we cannot but love Him. The sor rowful man as He appeared years af:er attracts ua by brotherly sympathy, it. was in ills humanity thai He attached people to Him and in Ills divine power that he saved them. To all who this morn ing surround the altar of repentance, In whatever part of the globe, Is poured out tho divine grace from the same great sonrce. There can be no rears tor the saiety ofHhe chnrch under such a protec torate. The woes of earth affect all of us, but we t should remember that Cod's power.

Attorney Street Church tor the Colored Methodist* of the Boat Side of the Citjr?~A Day of Jubilee Among Them? Dedicatory Sermon by Bishop Janea. Yesterday was a day of jubilee for the colored Methodists of the eastern portion of the city, the GHy Church Extension and Missionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church, with the liberality which has characterized its movements since its organization, having authorised the purchase of a spacious, neat and comfortably furnished edifice, for the occupancy of the Emmanuel colored congregation, gathered by their Allen street mis sion. The church Is located in Attorney street, between Delancey and Kivlngton streets, and was formerly occupied by the Methodist Protestauts (wlilte)? adlstinot branch of the . great Methodist progeny. It was purchased for $30,000, the half of which amount was paid when the negotiation was closed, and since then SO, 000 have been subscribed towards cancelling the remaiuing indebtedness. It was annonnced yesterday that Mr. J. B. Cornell, the President of the Missionary Society, gave $3,590 or that amount, and it was confidently hoped that the entire sum would be obtained throughout the day. Bishop Janes conducted the opening services yesterday morning, in the presence of a congrega tion composed of white and colored Methodists, the latter, ol course, predominating. After Kev. J. H. Merwin read the Scriptures and the choir sung a hymn, commencing, I love Thy kingdom. Lord, Tiie bouse ot Thine abode, Bishop Junes proceeded to deliver an able dis course, taking for Ills text the twenty-eighth verse or the first chapter of Colosslans? "Whom we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus." In his Introductory remarks the Bishop said that few things were more edifying than QOOD EXAMPLES, and the higher the service in which the example was furnished the more important was its instruc tion. There was no higher service in the world thun preaching the Gospel, and the example of St. Paul in preaching Christ wa3 worthy ofimltation. The preacher said that in order to preach Christ successfully his character must be fully described, and proceeded to delineate the excellencies of Jesus Christ, who com bined the human and the divine uatures, who was the Author of all religious teachings, the Giver of the Bible, the Itedeemer of the worl l by His viourious death upon the cross, and the Victor over the grave by rising from it. lie was also the Mediator and Supreme Lord of his people, and the object of all worship. Christ was the theme on which the apostles dwelt, and how, he (the Bishop) asked, could any minister who knew the true Gou and t-ne one Saviour? who had any appreciation of spiritual Interests and the immensity ot human destinies, who understood that this is a state of probation and that everything that pertains to the eternal world is to be determined here? preach any tiling else but Christ, and Him crucified 1 The Bishop went 011 to show at length the duty 01 ministers, to warn every man of his BinfUl State, and remarked that there was a wonderful mistake Hi the public mind In reierence to THE CRIMINALITY OK CHILDBXN. Just as soon as they Know good front evil they are responsible, anil if they do wrong they become guilty betore God, ami it they die In their sins where God and Christ are thev cannot come. Children ought to be warned of the danger of dying in their guilt and being lost forever, and it should be tne great concern 01 the pulpit and the Sunday school to lead them to repent of their sins and to obtain forgiveness of God that they might be pre pared lor death and the luture. The youth should be warned ot the danger of contracting habits of drinking intoxicating liquor, of using tobacco, of profanity and of love lor evil society, and of resist ing the graciocs influences of the divine spirit. The middle-aged and the hoary-headed sinner should also be admonished and encouraged to accept the oilers of the Gospel. The reason for this warn ing must be assigned by the Christian minister, for it was not a mere arbitraiy announcement to persons that they ure in peril, out it is becausc the fact exists. MANKIND ARE IN IMMINENT TEKIL because they had broken God's law, and they were rapidly passing to the judgment seat. The great Issues of eternity were before them, and unless they obtained the remission of their sins through believing in Christ, and the transformation of their souls by the Divine spirit, they would be banished from God and the glory of His power. Bearing In mind, no doubt, Mr. Beecner's recent discourse setting forth the proposition that every one who hail a spark of geoilness would get to heaven, the Bishop said:? How unreasonable is that SYMPATHY WITH HUMANITY that continues to cry "Peace,'* and to say pleasant things to lull men to sleep, and to encourage them to hope for goodness and glory while they are liv ing In their carnal state and in their criminality before God ! The warnings of God In His Word were selemn ? "The wages of sin Is death: the wicked shall be turned into hell with all the nations that forget Goil.'' In the further elucida tion of his theme the speaker pointed out how the preacher and the Sunday school teacher could effi ciently perform their duty. In warning and teaching others the way of salvation, and in conclusion said | that they would be rewarded by presenting those committed to their instruction "perfect in Christ Jesus" at last. Physical infirmity would remain with a renewed soul, but the power 01 grace was such that the motives and affections inigh' be purified, and although such might err in judgment it would be said ol them, "They are good." He hoped that the spirit of his text would be in the mind and heart or every man who should there alter occupy that pulpit. In the afternoon addresses were delivered by General Fisk, Dr. Dashiell and other lrienJs 01 the enterprise, and it was announced that Rev. *J. Parker would preach in the evening. BROOKLYN CHURCHES. PLYMOUTH OHUSOH. Mr. Beeeher Absent? The Justice of God? The Fall ot the Angels? An Exhortation to Justice and Mercy? An Unusually Interesting Sermon by the Rev. Mr. Murray. * Plymouth pulpit was occupied yesterday morn ing by the Kev. Mr. Murray, 01 Park street church, Boston, Mr. Beccher, ror once, making an ex change. There seemed to bo no falling off in the attendance, as Is usually the caso in Mr. Becclier's absence. Mr. Murray delivered a very Interest ing discourse on the ju.sticc of God. His text was Psalm lxxxix, fourteenth verse? "Justice and judgment are the habita tion of thy throne." I wish to speak to you this morning or the justice of God, or Divine justice. Not a lew say that the pulpits are reticent ou this subject. I desire that none may say it of mc. 1 believe in the fatherhood of God and in His I Jnstic. No one can comprehend the greatness of ! God's love who does not know that ju-stice under* I lies it. I will separate my sermon Into two heads? First, the justlcfcof God to liis people ; second, the justice or God as the rule of His conduct. God is Ills own governor; no counsellors sit wirh Him; lie has no opposition even in thought, and berore the glory or the invisible universe the highest, archangel hides his face, and to the authority of the one central Will everything is subject. So yon see the government or God is God Himself. 1 I ask you to inquire what would he the predomi nating principle, the comer stone, on which tins structure is laid. God ha? for Ills subiccts two classes, tne just and the unjust. Were ail the sub jects pure and right-miuded the severer elements of God's government would be hidden : for such a state where there would be nothing to restrain, I where nothing wonld occur to rume the mind, love "Vould undoubtedly be in the ascendant; but It Is j { not so. as far back as the anuals extend EVIL HAS CONTEND Fin WITH OOOn. Will yon consider, now, the fall or the angels v I make no attempt to explain that most mysterious 1 event; how, being pure and far above the world, 1 I they could rail; but such was the raet. Cor once, 1 ; at least, the chariot 01 God hew been rorced to 1 ! batile, and God stood victor on that awful field. I What did He do 1 He showed no maudlin pity; he ; paid no attention to their pleadings for mercy? 1 their sin was unpardonable; hell was the appro priate place for them, and Into it they went, laded j ; and reli, aud God's pure ones rejoiced. The next instance was God's treatment or onr ! ! proit>nitor, Adam. Vast periods of time had been 1 employed to create a world worthy of man, until j such a result was obtained that God pronounced jt ' good. At last man, endowed with reafon, was placed on the earth. Thus situated, endowed with every blessing, there was only one injunction laid I upon him, . ANT) THIS IIE OISOnEYEP. And what followed ? This man, who yielded to temptation througn love? this man, whose parent- ? age linked him to the celestial ordors? must i.e. for this one slip, fall forever? Would not Got! modify His rules lor once, and let His favorite go 1 Iree * Here was a golden opportunity for God to forgive; but here are lacts, not theory. He did what He said He would. Tho justice of God had bOen tampered with; the penalty must drop. The universe had heard His proclamation, and the universe looked to seo it He would keep His word. Would He consign His ravorlte to dark ness ? calvary showed them how He loved jus tice. and ror the first time heaven felt the inflexi bility of its King, and so lor the second time did God make a revelation or Himself. At the coming or the saviour a crisis had come; man was losing his superiority to tbe beasts or tho fields; tho tendency was to grow more gross. Now, It ever, something must be done. Lost and mined as they wefe, God still loved his children, so Ho decided they should be redeemed. Would the pleading ol the angels do it t Could tho love or UoU luiuseif i \\xa eleiftQUt vUuauw 9<wu? and spoke. No augel was high enoairtu Jostle* lifted his hau l above power* and principalities and pointed to the heart of the son or aoD, and then, for the third time, was a revelation ef Justice snch as heaven will never forget. New. consider In the second instance the justice of (led as the rnle of His conduct. The doings of God are watched by intelligent spectators, and God la oon stautly watching us so that the uecessary date may be la his possession. Whoever pretends (v judge most be guided by no Impulse, but bv flxe# rules. This implies that no decision will -go beyond or fall shert of justice, or will ever be re voked; claims of justice must be complied with before the milder nature can come out. The Eter ual cannot rebel against Bis own nature and re main God. and It was this consideration which shut the gates of heaven against our progenitor. Nothing short of death would do. Thns It was that Adam was ejected from Eden. The principles ef God's government had been violated, and In order that His authority might be vindicated ADAM WAS LOST. We stand under the shadow of that old, old cars? yet. An inexorable pressure is brought to bear en human souls. What chance is there, then, for man to escape ? Does any man know of a path through wliH-ii to run from this overhanging doomr If you fly to tlie uttermost parts or the earth OOD 18 THKKK. The justice or God is as a circumference ronn4 about siu. There Is no mask or mautle that can conceal the lace of sin Irom God. Now, if nothing can shield you irom the wrath of God, If you can't save vourself, what will be the result? I pan imagine but one possible contingency? that God will lower His demands. I mention this beoanae .vou think that God will forgive you. Who Is bo In sane as to imagine that God at this late day will revoke His decision? Who is fool enough to argne that, worm as he is, the Creator will cease to aet in accordance with ills strict rules? Justice, thou art beautilul; calm and majestio la thy face; no passion ruffles thy countenanee; beautiful are thy closed lips; beautiful are thy gar ments <*f faultless drapery, and thy hand of snow, baiaucfig the impartial scales. O Justice, hear thou our prayer, and descend to-day and stand be fore this people! Thou art needed; come clothed in a beauty beyond the beauty in whtcli the Greeks carved thee, aud stand revealed before as. dome not alone, but bring thy sister, Mercy ; let thy voloe mingle with hers, saving, Here wo stand, twin at tributes of God, born or His love; the one to pro tect the innocent, the other to plead ror the guilty. Then shall we sav, O God, justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne. CHURCH OF THE gOLY 0R08S. Dedication of a New Catholic Church at Flulbuah-A Large Congregation and Auspicious Opening? Sermon by Bishop l<oughUn, on Manet location. Iii the leafy, truly rural vlilago of Plat bush, a new church was yesterday dedicated to the servioe of the Catholic religion. Tnis chnrch Is the "Churota of the Holy Cross," and the building of It waa commenced about a year ago. It is In the Gothio style of architecture and the material used is brick and stone. The cost has been $32,000, and it will seat 800 worshippers. Thearcliltcctls Mr. Houghton, of Exchange place, New Yors, and he appears to have done his woric very creditably. Ihe old frame church, which was dedicated six years ago, is at the rear of the old church, and will be utilized for school and parochial purposes. Yesterday the weather was so balmy, the air so invigorating, the breeze that fluttered the leaves and stirred the blood so suggestive of a ride into the rural lanes and under shady trees, that It was not surprising to the common sense observer to find that the Flatbush avenue cars arriving about chnrch time from the city nearly emptied themselves of their occupants when they arrived at the village lane in which the church is situated. The result was that the building was crowded with A TOWN AND COUNTRY CONGREGATION of devout worshippers. The dedioatory and the ordinary services were periormed by the following clergy :-^The Right Rev. John Loughlin. D. D., celebrant; Father McCullum, deacon; Father T. O. Rellly, sub-deacon; Father Nevln, and the pastor of the church, Father O'Doherty. In tho gallery has been erected a small but powerful and mellow toned organ, by Mr. Henry Erbon, ef New York. , The organist is M. Cortada. The choir was com posed of the following:? Soprano, Mrs. Moore; alto, Mrs. Southwell; tenor, Mr. Doyle; basso, Mr. Dallon. During the servioe was sang "Mcridiatus.'' for four voices; "Milardi," and the trio, Verdi's "Jesu del Veivi," all of which were _ well rendered. Bishop Loughlin selected the tol lowing as the text ror his sermon? the first clause of the third verse of lonrtlf chapter of St. Paul's First Epistle to the Thessalonlans:? "For this Is the will of God, even your sanctiflcatlon." "God," said the Bishop, "has lett nothing undone that we may be sanctified. The end sought by Got! in His work for us is our salvation ana our sanctiflcatlon. That was the end proposed by God In giving us exist ence. Now, if tnis is the end proposed by God, It is reasonable to inquire what are the means pro vided by which this sanctiflcatlon Is to be carried out by us ? In the Gospel He had declared to as what the arrangement was. It was an arrange ment between cod and His Blessed Son, and It waa A VERY SIMPLE ARRANGEMENT. Every human power was usod to prevent it being carried out, fiut what was man's efforts as agaiast God's efforts? It wus a grand scene, this addressiug man by God, and giving to men thiB glorious commission of being rho depositary and reveaier of His truth. God so uniting men to Him self that henceforth they were not to proclaim their own notions, their own ideas, but were to be Inspired only by the truth of God. They were told to teach the people henceforth "the command ments that I have given you;" and these were not to be regulated by their own private Judgment. "The words that I have re ceived, I have given you," said our blessed Lord. This, then, WM part of the Divine arrange ment. Now mcu must be enlightened aud^anctl fled by this ttGth. But there is hesitation In put ting confidence in men who profess to be the teach ers of this truth, It is said that a Catholic Is re strained of lus liberty: but he is not restrained ol his liberty, for lie who hears and receives this truth is not listening to a man merely; he Is not Wound to the voice or man: it is the voice of God, and it is the truth in God that makes him free. Man is either to obey the truth in God or the spirit that is within him, and man Is either for God or against Him. There Is no medium point; tftere is no fellowship between light and darkness, be tween 1 CnRfST AND BELIAL. "He who Is not with me," says the Son of God, "is against me." It is n?t bondago, therefore, but liberty ye are called upon to enjoy. The catholic may lie said by men to be a slave, bat there is no slavery where this liberty Is enjoved. Where there is truth there is liberty. Besides the truth by which men are to be sanctified there are other means. They are very simple, but they are also very grand, simple, because they are the result of Almighty condescension; simple, because He knew the nature of onr hearts; simple, because we are but snail babes. We as men are grand and trnly great; we are made so by our character. We are great because we arc made in tho Image and the likeness of God. Great, because we have been re deemed by the precious blood of Christ; great, be cause we are sanctified by this, and became It Is tho will of (iod that we should be sanctified. There is a wonderful harmony, too, in tne simplicity and the greatness oi the means provided lor our sanc tiilcatiou. This was made manifest in the simple aud the holy sacrament or baptism, and all the other sacraments, especially in tliaL sacrament of love by which God manifests Himslif to men In a most peculiar way, in which He says, "He that eateth Mv flesh and drinketh My blood abldoth with Me." Who is it that makes man small and contemptible? Man himself. .">ee how God loves him, how He magnifies him. See how He desires to be united with hlin in time, that he may be united to Him in eternity. The Bishop concluded his sermon by a few words or practical application, and added his great thankfulness and congratula tions at seeing so beautiful a church dedicated to the service of God. SOUTH PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. Installation Services? Dr?. Cayicr, Wells and Evans Officiating. There was quite a large congregation last even ing at the South i'resbtterian church, at the cor ner or Clinton and Amity streets, Brooklyn, to witness the Installation of the Rev.
