EDWARD EVERETT HALE ON THE SECRET OF THE DEAD CLERGYMAN'S SUCCESS. A large congregation was assembled In the Church of All Sonls, Fourth-avenue Fourth-avenue Fourth-avenue and Twentieth- Twentieth- street, yesterday morning, when tbe Rev. Edward Everett Hale opened a service In memoi f of the late Pastor, the Rev. Dr. Henry W. Bellow rs. The service was particularly Impressive. Mr. B le read a message of comfort to the bereaved from Isaiah, and then the whole congregation, standing, sang with striking effeot a hymn entitled the ". )eath of a Christian in His Prime." Mr. Hale pra red earnestly, earnestly, and then, standing on the draped pulpit, lifted his eye-glasses eye-glasses eye-glasses and turned over care ully the pages of some old maauseript. I take n y text," said he, "from the fourteenth verse of tbe tweuty- tweuty- nf th Psalm : The secret of tbe Lord Is w th them tbat fear Him. I select It because it is th text of a very remarkable sermon, preached undei very remarkable remarkable circumstances by Dr. Bellows, the original manuscript of which I have here now.'1 The speaker then went on to relate that the manusci ipt was dated 18 years ago. On Jan. 13. 1870, Dr. Bellows was to have preached to what is called in '. ioston a "theatre congregation." and had arranged to speak from another text altogether. But 1 sudden Inspiration came to him that be must pr ?aeh on this particular text, and he did so, at tl e same time telling his audience tbat he was to have spoken on another topic, but could not re sist tbe mental call tbat came So him to make tbe - change. He afterward) wrote the sermon out. Tbe address bad an unexpected effect for good that surprised the autboi , In bis Impromptu effort he interpreted the " fea of tbe Lord" to be not that sense of terror which was the curse of the old theology, but tbe affection , regard, and obedience, as of a son to a father, v Inch the believer manifests toward God. The seen t of the Lord, he ..urged, was His omnlpotenee and the fearlessness of those who know they liv 5 In Him and have His power to do good. Th sermon caused many who heard it to change theii ways of life and to walk In another path. "This tsxt, and this Interpretation of it," continued Mr. Hi le, "are an illustration of the moving spirit of th 9 master life wnicn is gone from us. That spirit is runner shown in tbe lines of a long private letter which Dr. Bellows wrote to me long ago. and in which he sketehed bis biography. It Is written in thfc perfect and full confidence or friendship, ana pas that frankness tbat comes of corresDondende under such conditions. It contains a lessoa of I peculiar value to the young, and proves the fact tbat a true and pure boy becomes a man honored, beloved, and useful." - The speaker read some Interesting extracts from Dr. 1 ellows's own pen portrait of himself, to which the congre- congre- J ration listened with tbe keenest Interest. In this etter Dr. Bellows stated tnat he should ah 'ays consider consider his first experience as a preacher in tl e City as the backbone of his career, and .one wh ch drew from bin the best of his heart and mtnn. It re quired, then, real courage to be a Unitarian In New-York, New-York, New-York, and to be a Unitarian minister wife to be a sort of social outlaw. Dr. Bellows also spoke very affectionately of his congregation In the later, and 7 commendea Its Christian worn aad social standing and influence. " It is a reverent body of real Christians." were bis words. Of his nreacb- nreacb- Ine and preaching methods he spoke wit hi seeming dimdence, simply saying tbat bis addresses had been " plain, direct appeals to tbe religious nature of man, not a preaching down, but a r. reaching up." He suspected, be wrote further, th; it he had read as much as any one of his day of div nlty. history, history, literature, poetry, abd metaphysics, and regretted regretted that be had not put some of bis w itlngs In hook form. Instead of the perishable pam ibiet and newspaper article. " rnis letter." resumed Mr. iiaie. as ne loiaed ud the missive. " throws a light npon the man which shows his marvelous and varied abilities! and tbe secret of his noble service. It was arte be had won the habit of constant prayer and bad acquired a sense of God that bis history was written. He was a servant always, willing, active, and! earnest. He never asked of any new piece of work. ' Is this In my line t Does this add to my ret utatlon 1 Can't I shift this upon somebody else V fc n it was he became a living example to young 1 nen and young women of the GosdpI be preached here so often. He did not preach ethical sermon! to settle people's doubts. He spoke as a firm bel ever, for ne knew all would come out aright for tl ose who loved God aright. Looking over th 1 almost world-wide world-wide world-wide range of bis active ministry, it is found that the secret of his power was that It was Almighty power. It came from God. His overflowing eloquence and power of ap; eal come of his trust In God to supply tbe inspi at ion to spesk with moving and convincing poi rer. He used to tell those of ns In Boston who I ad to ad- ad- dress religious assemblages that we spent too much time in tbe mere preparation of detail It was enough to get our point clearly before usl he held. and then trust to God to give us tbe power to make our sermon strong and effective. " We wljo remain after him," said the speaker in conclusion, "will best show onr gratitude to him If we follow In bis footsteps along the way he trod, and if rwe trust and believe in God not simply believe aaa matter of doctrine, but live and act our faith as Ifl we were sons and daughters of the present Goo.'

SOLDIERS AT WORSHIP. THB ELEVENTH REGIMENT ATTENDS DIVINE SERVICE IN A BODY. Some time ago, when the Eleventh Regi ment N. G. S. N. Y., decided to attend divine worship, worship, considerable difficulty was experienced in obtaining obtaining a church in which the regiment could as semble, owing to the refusal of a number of ministers ministers In this City to penult tbe use of their churches for this purpose. The Pastors applied to all failed, in the opinion of the members of the regiment, to give any adequate reason for their refusal, which was, however, generally ascribed to the reputation borne by the regiment of having a large number of non-believers non-believers non-believers In Its ranks. For a time It seemed as though tbe Eleventh would be nnder tbe necessity, owing to its inability to procure the use of any sacred edifice, of holding religious ser vices in iu armory, when, finally, the Rev. C. C. Lasby. Pastor of the Old John-Street John-Street John-Street Methodist Episcopal Church, hearing of the position in which tbe regiment was placed, tendered tendered the use of his church. The regiment yesterday yesterday afternoon marched from its armory, at Grand and Centre streets, and filed Into the Old John- John- Street Methodist Church, where the regimental regimental Chaplain, tbe Rev. G. C. W eidling, was waiting to receive it. All the officers and over 800 men were present. Tbe services were opened with prayer by the Pastor Pastor of the church, which was followed by the sermon sermon of the Chaplain, who spoke in German, and took his text from First John, Iv. : 16. la the course of his address, referring to the refusal ot the various various ministers to permit tbe regiment to worship in their churches, the preacher said: "In 1862, when tbe cry went up for every true man to go to the front and save the country from disruption, the Eleventh Regiment was among tbe first to respond. At Gettysburg and on many another bloody battle-field battle-field battle-field the Eleventh held gallantly Its ground In defense of the Union. Xatcr on, in 1H72 and 1877, during tne riots, the members of the Eleventb Regiment stood prepared to pour forth their hearts' blood In defense of law and order and in tbe protection of life and property. Not long ago a well-known well-known well-known General asked me: "How goes It with religion In tbe Eleventb r I told him tbat my connection with the regiment at that time had not been of sufficiently long duration for me to be able to give him a positive answer, but I said tbat I hoped soon to see the regiment regiment assemble in church for the purpose of attending divine service. A few weeks ago the regiment decided to assemble for this purpose, but at this juncture a most monstrous and most unexpected unexpected obstaole was encountered. This regiment, composed ot members of all denominations, asked the rastors 01 a number or churches in this City for a place in which to worship their common God. and these so-called so-called so-called followers of Christ were so far away from the true spirit of godliness godliness tbat they refused tbe regiment's nraver. Christ came on earth not save the right eous, Dut to bring sinners to repentance. The righteous referred to in this instance are those who Imagine themselves to be so good that they need no more to be added unto them those who are wrapped up in paltry pride and jealously of scot. Christ despises sucn as these. They Btrlve to shut tbe gates of heaven against those who wish to enter, and they will themselves be shut out. This regiment, which has fought to maintain the integrity of the Union, which has. In the troublous times of tbe past, restored peace and law and order order to the City, has been debarred from religious worship by those churches which It fought to preserve preserve from destruction. It was an insult to us, but we will forget and forgive. We w'll. in obedience to Christ's law. return good fore . '.L and will re tain no bitterness in onr hearts. We will only bear In grateful remembrance tbe fact that there was one true priest who threw open the doors of his cnurcn to us." At the conclusion of the services Col. Unbelt ant. surrounded by bis efficers. advanced to the altar rails and thanked Mr. Lasby on behalf of the regi ment. A ROW IN AN OPIUM DEN. Delia Magnire, a fashionably dressed young woman, was arraigned in the Essex Market Police Court, yesterday, charged, on complaint of Eliza beth Chin Tin, the wife of a Chinaman, with disor derly conduct. From the evidence of the com plainant It appeared that the prisoner came to her nouse, at No. 4b first-street, first-street, first-street, late on Saturday night, and. after raising much disturbance, broke a show case containing cigars. In testifying In her own defense tbe prisoner stated tbat her busband, Barney Barney Maculre. was addicted to the use of onlum. and that on Saturday night she learned that he was smoking tbe drug at Chin Tin's place. She accordingly accordingly went there for the purpose of taking her husband husband home, but was resisted In ber attempt by the wife of tbe Chinaman. An altercation ensued, which was followed by a struggle, in the course of which tbe show-case show-case show-case was accidentally shattered. In rendering a decision In the case Justice White said that Mrs. Maguire was justified in following the course that she had adopted. In his opinion the opium dens in this City were evils which called loudly for suppression. The magistrate tbu di- di- nussea tne case. the to in he 85 of six ers steamers his ly he a at or of I.
