CELEBRATION IN LEBANON.
The patriotic citizens of Lebanon
held, a union service in the Presbyteri
an church, as per the proclamation of
tho president of tlitf-United States, to
celebrate the one hundredth anniver
sary of this great republic. The open
ing services of prayer and reading of
scripture M as conducted by Rev. Wal
ter Sklpworth, followed by excellent
music by the choir. The opening
speech was made by Rev. J. It. Kirk
patrlck, setting forth tho principle
upon which the government was
founded as the real object tp celebrate.
V. M. Miller, Esq., made a very timely
speech, linking the names of all Amei
iean statesmen and patriots together,
without partiality to any, as tho leal
cause of America's erreatness and glory.
Mr. C. B. Montague delivered a fine
eulogy on the life aud character of
Washington, claiming him as the her
itage of the world in Its strugglo for
republican liberty. Mr. J. J. Swan
drew some fins lessons from tho early
life of Washington for the children,
and made some fine impressions on the
old as well. Mr. J. M. Marks paid a
fine tribute to Christianity, as the rock
basis upon which the government Mas
built, and without which the must
fall. Rev. I. Carlton then reviewed,
briefly, the grand progress of tins na
tion in all that pertains to her real
glory, and showedj'iiat immense pos
sibilities lay out before us. The exer
cises were closed by a few well timed
remarks by Revs. Sklpworth and ( Jib
oney. Rev. G. W. Uiboney deserves
great credit for the arrangement and
carrying out of the programme, with
which all seem delighted. These pa
triotic gatherings keep the fires of lib
erty burning on our country's altar,
and impress, the old and young of what
it cost to purchase this nation's liberty
and how that priceless boon should be
religiously and sacredly guarded.
