X HTNEKAL SERMOK.
We clip the following very interest
ing letter from the columns of the Gib
son City Eeterprize of Gibson City,
Ford county, Illinois, which was writ
ten by a former republican resident
lawyer of that town, who at the time
of writing the same was temporarily
located in Girard, Kansas. The occa
sion of the letter was a request from
the democratic friends of the author's
to preach a funeral sermon over the
republican party, and he writes it up
with a caustic pen:
Members of the Democratic Commit
tee of Invitation and Democratic friends
of Gibson: I received your pressing
invitation by telegraph to .reach for
you a funeral sermon over the republi
can party, and being as ever anxious
nd willing- to accommodate you, I
comply with your request, but as you
were evidently too poor to pay the
charges on your message, I take it for
.granted that it vould be impossible
for you to provide for my expenses to
Gibson, and such other necessary ex
penses as your knowledge of courtesy
would suggest to you. I therefore
accommodate myself to your impecu-
neous circumstances, and we will hold
short service through the columns of
the home paper.
We will open our exercises by sing
ing that old and familiar hymn, "Re
turn ye ransomed sinners home."
Brother Hughes -will please lead the
singing, rand let all the singers siug.
We will next give attention to the fol
lowing lesson: Yerily I say unto you,
the kingdom of this land is like unto
a husbandman who had two sons,
.and the elder f the two rose up and
:saith unto his father: If I cannot rule
the inheritance as I wish, and compel
hee and my brother to serve me in
iniquity, then old man comes down your
shanty; and his brethren hearkened
not unto his demands nor sanctioned
Ids iniquity, which so incensed this
elder brother Chat he straightway stole
lall the silver and gold from the coffers
of his father's ihouse and threw down
the walls thereof and carried away all
he treasures of the house and sought
to steal one-half of the inheritance and
set up for himself another kingdom
wherein the iniquities and wickedness
of his ways might find no hindrance.
Then rose up the man of the house and
taketh .that son by the collar and lead
eth him away .to the woodshed and
laboreth him for a season of four
years, until he repented .himself in
sackcloth and ashes. And verily I
say unto you that son was again forth
with returned to his former rights in
the inheritance like unto his brother
who tended the vineyard, and in four
:and twenty years by false promises
.and deceitfulness was admitted to the
full management of the inheritance.
There is a fountain filled with coin,
Drawn from the mines of earth;
A treasury with vaults so full
We all may share its wealth.
The rebel thieves rejoiced to see
That fountain in their day;
An d thereanay .we though vile as they,
Wash all their debts away.
I will now call attention to the fol
lowing passage as my text: "He is
not dead but sleepeth." The subject
of these remarks was born in the year
1856. Its father was freedom and its
mother was Justice. The offspring
became the inseperable union of the
two, and was called the Republican
Party. When only four years of age
the affairs of the .Nation were given
into its hands, and no sovereign on
.the face of earth ever assumed the
reigns , of a government in a worse
condition of demoralizat'on financial,
moral and political than ours when
entrusted to its hand. No sovereign
in the annals of, time ever accomplish
-ed more or brought about greater
national improvement and prosperity
than has resulted to this Repub lican
party: aud no sovereign ever retired
from -tlie throne of any kingdom in the
civilired world, leaving to his suc
cessor a nation of a people in a more
perfect enjoyment of peace, prosperity
and happiness than this Nation to
day. Such a record of the grandest nation
al career of twenty-four years which
this or any other nation ever saw or
ever will see, and with the honors of
such a record upon it, the Republican
party retires from the reins of govern
ment not dead but sleeping for a
time, to be called again to power.
not alone of its own volition, but called
as it was at its birth to respond to the
cry of forty milliors of loyal freemen.
Called whenever treason shall again
be seen stalking forth unmasked in the
land. And may God in His mercy
defer that day to the uttermost limit
of His all wise providence. You, my
Democratic friends deceive yourselves
by thinking that day will never come.
But let me tell you, the seasons will
not have made a circuit of the year
before you will behold it, if your eyes
be not blinded by passion and preju
dice. Writing as I do from this lo
cality, which wiis in times of war the
border-line, I may say to you that
already before your victory was assured
I beheld it. At' two cities in this
county has the rebel flag been flying to
the breeze in jollification over your
victory, and not only flying to the
breeze but maintained and defended
there at the muzzle of the gun, and
this, not in the atmosphere of demo
cratic shotgun supremacy but in a
county as strongly republican as your
own. Xou say such men as that have
no sense, and this is the only difference
between them and you, for so long as
you cling so close to them with their
lack of sense to hide their principles,
you must in your hearts hold common
principles with them, and when your
rebel friends who, lacking for want of
sense and education that wisdom which
republican institutions have given to
you shall show forth to the world your
common principles, then will the loyal
people again demand the restoration of
the republican party to power. Look
you at the banner State Missouri.
When these principals were cropping
out the present campaign you present
ed a rebel General for Governor who
boldly declared from the stump in my
own hearing, "They say I was a rebel.
I say I was a rebel, and I am proud of
it. The confederacy is in the saddle
to-day, and will regain in this cam
paign what they lost in the war."
The loyal men of Missouri saw it, and
the democratic majrity of 55,000 only
two years ago for Governor stands
cut down to hardly 5,000. But the
hour has arrived for closing these ex
ercises, and in conclusion by way of
explanation let me say if I speak too
plain or my manner sounds harsh, I
want you to take as I mean and not as
I say, for I mean it far stronger than
I say it, and if my discourse is not
altogether satisfactory io you, then
well perhaps you tickled the wrong
GENERAL 'GRANT (OH THE RETIRED LIST.
It was but a fitting act of the retir
ing administration, and a fitting close
for a long, patriotic and successful re
publican rule, was the passage and
signing of the bill to retire General
Grant, .and placing the infirm old
soldier in his proper place on the list
of army heroes, and the confirmation
of the appointment by the unanimous
voice of the Senate. The cheers that
greeted the successful issue of this
measure are a sufficient test of the
patriotic feeling that throbs in the
hearts of a loyal people when called
upon to remember with honor and
gratitude the man who had led the
armies of the nation to victory over an
arrogant, internecine foe. All honor
to the retiring republican president and
the republican senatt, and honor, too,
to the democratic members of the house
of representatives, who, on the morn of
the inauguration of a president of their
wn political faith, felt that they could
afford to be just to a man who, in car
rying the standard of the republic to
victory, saved it from disruption and
made it possible for democrats to be
honored with place and power. "Voiced
by the press all over the land.
One of our Southern Oregon demo
cratic exchanges says: "We are sorry
at the course pursued by the Standard.
Indeed if such a course were general
by the democratic journals, there would
be some truth in the strictures of the
Oregonian as to the Southern Con
federacy having captured the govern
ment. The paper that cannot speak
with decency, we do not even say re
spect, of Gen. Grant must injure any
cause it seeks to uphold. The Stand
ard put the head "Dying of jim-jams"
over its account of the pitiful condi
tion of Gen. Grant, who is slowly but
surely being consumed by Cancer of
the mouth. We can think of no fate
more terrible than the death by Can
cer. We know that the great heart of
the American people goes out in sym
pathy to the great captain, so vic
torioui, that at last but waits his con
quering by the king of terrors."
The Chronicle's Washington special
of the 10th inst., says: "Settlement
of the New Hampshire case in the sen
ate will be a precedent for the Oregon
case, which will arise if the governor
of Oregon appoints a senator, the legis
lature having gailed to elect. It seems
to be settled that the senate will admit
Blair, and if it does it will admit any
senator who nviy be appointed from
