Wide a-i the triumphs of the assembling people may spread, may the higher trinm;hs of thy grace and mercy be etill more gracefully acknowledged, and thankfully enumerated and.c-a.llod to mind. O God, it ia thy patience and bounty' which havo placed us this day where we are, and made us what we are duller us not to ay that our wisdom, or the mightiness of our hand, have gained this triumph: or that anything in ns haa deaerved its bestowal. In the very degree in which Thou hast exalted ns.enable us to humble ouryelvee before thee; and while Thou art speaking unto us, in language of amazing encouragement may we sincerely peak to Thee, in the language of self-renouncing penitence, and deeper eurnestne? of desires and purpose, in everything to do Thy will. . , As we look back this day, over all this conflict ended this journey through deep waters completed we blesa Thee anew, O God, for the great and faithful men whom Thou hast raised up among us, in civil, military and naval life, mighty in counsel, triumphant in battle, and glorious in contests on the deep. But above all, we Braiso thee, for that beloved and exalted ruler, whom ion didst set over us, under whose shadow we rejoiced. whose example in life was our lailtuui guiae, wnoee entle and forbearing administration wsh an nonor to umanity, and in whose aeatn, tnnugn it leaves niai enshrined in our hearts, in tbe irrateful aitection or millions of his follow-citirens, we have felt bereaved beyond the common example of mankind. With our thanksgivings for ail tbe past, we rffer this day, G God, our earnest prayers for the abiding welftre, f prosperity and peace of our beloved country ; .we pray bee to maintain the government which thou bast given ns against all assaults, and to multiply n pon every generation of our people the social and personal blessings which it ia adapted to bestow and secure, klsy it ever be edminiatered in righteouf uess, and wise and upright rulers be given tov this people. Defend the nation from ths violence of rebellion, and rescue them from the mutual recriminations of party spirit. Guard and direct the President of ths United btates in the faithful discharge of hia responsible duties; and pour Thy gracious blessings, both spiritual and temporal, for time and for eternity, upon aim and hia household.

Y 5 are assembled to lay the corner-etone of a monument 10 soldiers who freely poured forth their blood upon this spot in their country's defence. The bcdK'" ol many who were dear and cherished in the households of our nation, lie buried around us here. While we honor their memory, and would perpetuate the record of their renown, their widows and their orphans we commend to thee. Their many wounded companions, the charge upon their country's gratitude snd kindness, was present also, before thee. Awaken a spirit of liberal kindness snd just remuneration toward them all, among this whole people; and bless, prosper, and reward every effort which lua? be made lot their comfort and relief, spread tho influence and power of that gospel, which teaches love to God and love to man, aa tbe duty and privilege of all who hear it in every portion of our land, and make thia nation an example and an agent of its influence in blessing throughout all the earth. May ail the exercises of thia day be made to awaken a spirit of union, loyalty and love among those who are here assembled, and all the inhabitants of this land. And may this monument and this ground consecrated by the honored dead, be in years to come a token and a witness to all who shall ever visit this place of thy blessing upon thia people and of all the interests which thou hast preserved for them, aod an admonition to every eoming generation, that thy tavor ia hie, and thy loving kindness is better than life. Thus, O God, do we look up to thee in praise snd praver, aud ask thine acceptance and favor in the name of our Glorious Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Amen. The Baltimore Musical Association then sang French's Hymn," with fine effect This is a national hymn, composed by Bob. B. B. Fbemch, and aung first at the consecration of this ground, in November, 18C3. The next thing in order was the President's letter, which had been forwarded by special messenger, United Statea Marshal Goodiko acting in that capacity, and being tendered tbe use of the President's plegant car. Judge Gooding then read the let-twin a dear, distinct voice, as follows : tux president's t-ztteb. ExzcirnYK Majjstok, 1 Washihotos. XX C, July 3, 18C5. J Jfr. David WxlU, Chairman, arc, Getfyttmry, Ftnn.: Dkab Bib: I had promised myself the pleasure of participating in person in tha proceedings at Gettya-bnrgh to-morrow. That pleasure, owing to my indisposition, I am reluctantly compelled to forego. I ahould have been pleased standing on that twice consecrated spot to ahare with you your joy at the return of peace, to greet with yon the surviving heroes of the war who coma back with light hearts, though heavy laden with honors, and with you to drop grateful tears to the memory of those that will never return. Unable to do so in person, I can only send yon my greetings, and assure yon of my full sympathy with the purpose and spirit of your exercises to-morrow. Of all ths anniversaries of the Declaration of Independence, none haa been more Important and significant than that upon which you assemble. your years of struggle for our nation's life have been crowned with success : armed treason la swept from tfcej, land, our porta are reopened; our relations with other nations are of the most satisfactory character; oar internal commerce; our soldiers and sailors re-anme the peaceful pursuits of civil life; onr flag floats tn every breeze; and the only barrier to onr national progress huiaan slavery is forever at an end. Let na trust that each recurring Fourth of July ahall find onr nation stronger in number stronger In health-stronger tn tha harmony of its dozens stronger In ita devotion to nationality and freedom. Aa I have often said, I believe that God sent this people on a mission among the nations of the earth, aad that when he founded our nation he founded it in perpetuity. That faith sustained me through the struggle that is past It- sustains me now that new duties axe devolved upon me and new dangers threaten ua. 1 feel that whatever the means he uses, tha Almighty is determined to preserve na aa a people. And since I know the love onr fellow-citizens bear their country, and the aarTiacea they have made for it my abiding faith has become stronger than ever that a " government ox the people ' ia the strongest aa well aa the beat of governments. In your Joy to-morrow. I trust yon wiQ not forget the thousands of whites ae well aa blacks, whom toe war haa emancipated, who will hail this Fourth of July with a delight which no previous declaration of Independence ever gave them. Controlled so long by ambitious, selfish leaders, who used them for their own unworthy ends, they are now free to aerve and cherish the government agarnat whose hfe they, ia tbair blindness, struck. I am greatly mistaken if in the States lately tn rebellion we do not henceforward have an exhibition of such loyalty and patriouam as were never eaea nor felt there before. When yon have consecrated a national cemetery yon are to lay the corner-stone of a national monument which, in all human probability, wm rise to the full height and proportion yon design. Noble as this monument or atone may be. It will be bnt a faint symbol of the grand monument which, if we do our dory we shall raise among the nation, of the earth upon ths foundation laid nine and eighty yearn ago in Philadelphia.

The laying of the corner-etone by tbe Grand Mas ter Scott, of the Grand Lodge of Masons of Penn sylvania, was then proceeded with. The Grand Chap lain flfht offered up an invocation, and then the Bight Worshipful Grand Master repeated the order of exercises, and with the assistance of the other officers, this simple and interesting ceremony waa soon performed. The box containing the documents for deposit in the stone was of heavy tin, and the contributions of each State were inclosed in separate and smaller boxes, all held by the larger. The list of documents and coins deposited waa very large, bnt as it is not yet complete, the Board of Commissioners withhold its publication for the present At the conclusion of this ceremony. Gen. Howard was introduced, and delivered the following address: OEaTTOS BT HAJ03-aE5. HOWAED. As I stand here to-day before a re&ceful audience, composed as it is of beautiful ladies. Joyous children, and happy citizens, and think of my last visit to this place two years sgo, and of the terrible scenes in which it wis my lot to bear a part, I cannot help exclaiming, " How changed ! how changed !" It is the. same rich landscape, broad and. beautiful, covered with every variety of natural objects to please the eye. The same wooded ridges and cultivated fluids; the name neat little town clinging to the hillr side; the same broad avenues of approach; the same ravines and creeks bnt, thank God ! the awful magnificence of hosts arrayed against each other in deadly strife is wanting. Yonder heights are no longer crowned with hostile cannon-; the valleys do not reverberate with their fearful roar; t tlih groves and the houses do not give back the indescribable peal of the mueLetry fire. And oh 1 how like a dream to-day seems tbat aid spectacle of broken tombstones, prostrate fences, and the ground strewn with our own wounded and dead companions 1 Then follows, after battle, tho mingling of iriends and enemies with suffering deplete 1 in all possible modes of portraiture. The surgeon, with resolute hearts and bloody hands; the p ile faces of relatives searching for dear ones, the busy Sanitary and Christian workers all pass before my mind in group after group. My friends, my companions, my countrymen, suffer me to congratulate you anew to-day, this Fourth of July, 1805, that this sad work is , completely sweet peace hns really dawned the l'Jth of November, 1863, done, and ' that upon ns. On this National Cemetery, a pious tribute to manliness and virtue, was consecrated, lion. Edward Everett delivered an address in his own rich, clear, elegant style, which, having been published, has long ago become historical, aud affords us a complete and graphic account of the campaign and battle of Gettysburgh. I am deeply grateful to this noble patriot for his indefatigable industry in securing facts, and for tbe clear narrative he has left ns of this battle, in- which every living loyal soldier who fought here is now proud to have borne a part He, joining the patriotic band of those .that are honored by his eloquence, has gone to his reward; apd let his memory ever be mingled with those ' here, upon wboee graves he" bo earnestly invoked your benediction. Mr. Everett was followed by the few remarkable words of President Lincoln. While Mr. Lincoln's name ia so near and dear to ns, "and the memory of his work and sacrifice so fresh, I deem it not inappappriate to repeat his own words : - Fourscore and seven years ago, onr fathers brought forth upon this continent anew nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. ow we are engaged in a "Tent civil wvr, testing whether that nation, or any cation f6 conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We are met to dedicate a portion of it as the final resting-place of those who here gave their lives that tbat tuition might live. It is altogether fitting and proiiesr that we should do this. But in a Ifcrger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our power to add or detract . The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can neve- forget what they did here. It is for ns, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work that they have thus far so nobly carried on. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before ns that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to the cause for which they here gave the last full meanure of devotion, that we here highly resolve that the dead shall not have died in vain, that the nation ahall, under God, have a new birth of freedom, and that the government of the iieople, by the people, and for the people, ahall not perish from the earth. ' The civil war is ended; the test was complete. Be, Abraham Lincoln, never forgot his own dedication till the work was finished. . He did display evenln-creased devotion if it were possible. The dead did not die in vain, and the nation has experienced already the new birth of freedom of which he spoke. Oh, that in the last throes of darkness nnd crime God had seen it good to have spared ua that great heart ont of which proceeded such welcome words of truth and encouragement I - How very much of greatful recollection cluster around the name of Abraham Lincoln aa we pronounce it here among the dead who have died that onr nation might not perish from the earth ! These grounds have already been consecrated, and are doubly aacred from the memory of our brethren who lie here, and from the association with those remarkable men, Mr. Everett and Mr. But. cols, who gave tone to the exercises of consecration two years ago, whoae own bodies are now resting beneath the sod, but whose spirit, is still living, and unmistakably animating every true American heart thia day. We have now been called to lay the coner-stone of a monument This monument is not a mere family record, not the simple memorial of individual fame, nor the silent tribute to geuius. It is raised to the soldier. It ia a memorial of hia hfe and his noble death. It embraces a patriotic brotherhood of heroes tn its inscriptions, and is an unceasing Lerald of labor, suffering, union, liberty and sacrifice, - Let us then, aa Is proper on such an occasion 'as thia, give a few thoughts to the American soldier. We have now embraced under this generic name of soEQer, the dutiful officer, the volunteer soldier, the regular, the colored, and the conscript; but in my remarks I will present you the private volunteer as the representative American soldier. In the early part of 1861, the true citizen heard that traitors at Washington had formed a conspiracy to overthrow the government and soon after that the Stars and Btripes had been fired upon and bad been hauled down at ths bidding of an armed enemy tn South Carolina; that the capital of the nation was threatened, and that our new President had called for help. How quickly the citizen answered the call I Almost like magic he sprang forth a soldier. His farm or his bench, his desk or his counter, was left behind, and yon find him marching through the then gloomy, flag leas, defiant streets of Baltimore, fully equipped for service, with uniform gray, blue, red or green it then mattered not; with knapsack, cartridge-box, musket and bayonet, his outfit waa 1 that was required. He was a little awkward, hia accoutrements much awry, bis will unsubdued. He did not keep step to music, nor always lock step with his com panione. He had scarcely ever fired a muaket, but be had become a soldier, put on the soldiers' garb, set his face towarda tha enemy, and God willing, he purposed never to turn back till the soldiers' work was done. Yon meet him at Washington (on Meridian Hill, perhaps;) discipline and drill seize upon him, restrain his bberty. and mold hia body. Colonels, Captains, lieutenant and sergeants, his former equals, order him about and he must obey them. Ob, what days 1 and oh, what nights I Where ia home and anection t Where is the soft bed and the loaded table r Change of eiimate, change of food, want of rest want of all kinds of old things, and an influx of all sorts of new things, make hint sick yea, really audt in body and sout But tn spite of a few doses ot quinine and a wholesome hospital bed and diet, (as the soldier of '61 remembers them.) his vigorous oouati ration and indomitable heart prevail, so that he is soon able to croas the Long Briile and Invade the sacred red clay of Virginia, with his eompanione in anna. Tet, perhaps, shodd yon now observe him very closely, you will perceive his enthusiasm Increasing even faster than hia strength. He is on the enemy's aide of the river; now for strict guard duty; now for the lonely picket amid the thickets where men are killed by ambuahed foea. How the eye and ear. and. I may say it the heart are quickened in these new and trying vigils. Before long, however tbe soldier ia Inured to these things; he becomes "Vitr with every stump, t-ee, and path way of approach and his trusty gun and stontar heart defj any secret foe. Pres ently yon find him on the road to battle; the hot weather of July, the usual load, the superadded twenty extra rounds of cartridges and three days ra tion-, strung to ms necx. ana tne wmg wwy m-vu unit, nhuia hia atrenirth dnrina? the very first day. ft m uf In lain the ranka and rest but DO I BO I He did not leave home for the ignominious name of atrax-irler and skulker. Cost what it may, ne tous on. Tha Anntfnk the l Cnb Run. the xtever-to-be-forgotten Bull Run, are passed. Here, of a sudden, strange and terrlbla aonnds strike noon his ear. and bear down upon bis ear, and boar down upon his heart; the booming of shotted cannon ; the screeching of bunted shell through the heated air, and the sip, sip, zip of smaller balls; everything produces a singular effect nron him. Acpiin all at once he is thrown onita nnnrnaml noon a new and tryimr expert ence; for now he meets the groaning ambulance and the hhwiv etretcher. He meets limDintT. armless. legless, disfigured, wounded men. To the right of him and to the left of him are the lifeless forms of tne slain. Suddenly a large iron missile of death strikes close beside him and explode, sending out twenty or more jagged fragments, which remorseicsaiy maim or kill five or six of his mates before they have had the opportunity to strike one blow for their country. Ilis lace is now very pale; and will not the American sol- dier flinch and torn back? mere is a stone wau; there ia a buildimr: there is a stack of hay; it Is so ut to hide. Bnt nol He will not be a coward 1 " Oh I God, support and strengthen me !" Tisall hia nraver. Soon he is at work. Yonder ia the foe. ' Load and fire load and fire." But the cry comes, " Our flank is turned! Ourmenretraatt" With tears pouring down his cheek, he slowly yields, and joins tbe retiring throng. Without any more nerve ana mue sireugui. he struggles back from s lost field. Now ha drinks the drees of suffering. Without blanket for the night without food, without hone, it is no wonder that a panic seizes him, and he runs demoralized away. This disreputable course, however, is only temporary. The soldier, before long, forgets his defeat and his sufferings, brightens up his armor, and resumes his place on the defensive line. He submits for weary days to discipline, drill and hard fare; he wades through the snows of Winter and the deep mud of a Virginia Spring. He sleeps upon the ground, upon the deck of a transport-steamer, and upon the floor of the platform-car. He helps load and unload stores; he makes fascines and gabions ; he - corduroys quicksands, and bridges creeks and bogs. Might and day he diga or watches in the trenches. What a world of new experience i What peculiar labor and suffering he passes through, the soldier alone can tell you. He now marches hurriedly to his second battle; soon after he is in a series of them. Fight and tall back I Fight and fall back 1 Oh those days of hopelessness, sorrow, toil, and emaciation. How vividly the living soldier remembers them, those days when he cried from the bottom of his heart " Gh, God, how long I how long!" Would you have the patience to lollow him through the commingling of disasters from the battle ot Cedar Mountain to the same old Bull Bun, you would emerge with him from the chaos and behold his glistening bayonet again on the successful field of Antietam, where a glimmer of hope lighted up his heart Would you go with -him to the bloody fields of Fredericksburgh, ' staunch his wounds in the wilderness . of Chancellorsville, and journey on with him afterward to ' this hallowed ground of GcttyBburgh, and could you be enabled to read and record his toils, his sufferings, and all bis thoughts, you might be able to appreciate the true American soldier. You might then recite the first chapter of the cost of the preservation of the American Union. In September, lbC3, after the battle of Gettysburgh, government sends two army corps to reinforce our brethren in the West Thcvsoldier is already for from home and' friends, but he ia suddenly apprised that he must go two thousand miles further. He cannot visit his family to take leave of them. He has scarcely the opportunity of writing a line of farewell. The chances of death are multitudinous as they appear before his imagination, and the hope of returning is very slender. Yet again the soldier does dot falter. With forty others he crowds into the close, un-ventilated freight car, and speeds away, night and day, without even the luxury of a decent seat; With all the peculiar - discomforts of this journey, the backings and waitings at the railroad junctions, the transfers froru car to car and from train to train ; beuue confined for days without the solace and strength derived' from bis coffee, there is yet something compensative in the exhileratihg influence of. change. And there is added to it in pasaing through Ohio and Indiana a renewed inspiration as the people turn out in masses to welcome him and to bid him God-speed. As little girls throw wreaths of flow-' ess round his neck, kiss his bronzed check, and : strew his car with other offerings of love and devo- tion. Such impressions as were here received' were never effaced. They touched the rough heart anew with tenderness, and, being a 1 reminder of; all the old home affections, only served to deepen his resolution sooner or later, by the blessing of God, to reach the goal of his ambition; that is to say,; with his compatriots, to secure to his children and to: other children enduring peace with liberty aud an uu- divided country. He passes on through Kentucky,! through the battle-fields of 1'ennessee, already historical. The names, Nashville, Stone River, Murfroes-j boro, and Tullahoma, reminded him of past struggles and portended future conflicts. He is deposited at Bridgeport Alabama, a houseless, cheerless, chilly place, on the banks of the Tennessee ; possessing no interest further than that furnished, by the railroad bridge destroyed, and the yet remaining rubbish and filth of an enemy's camp. Before many days the soldier threads his way up the valley of the great river which winds and twists amid the rugged mountains, till he Unas nimseix beneath tne rock-crowned steeps of Lookout Flash after flash, volume . after volume of .light-colored pmoke, and peal on peal of cannon, the crasb ing sound of shot and the screaming of shell, are the.' oujiaoua sjgns of unfriendly welcome sent forth toi meet him from this rocky height Yet on he marches, in spite of threatening danger, in spite of the ambush along his route, until he nas joined hands with his Western brother, who had come fTomXhattanooga to meet and to greet him. This is where the valley of Lookout joins that of the Tennessee. At this place the stories of Eastern and Western hardship, suffer-inf;, battling and elangt r are recapitulated and made to bli nd into the coiupion history and the common sacrifice of the American soldier. Were thertf time, I wculd gladly take you, step by Btep with the soldier, as he bridges aud crosses the broad and rapid river: as he ascends and storms the bight of Mission Kklge; or as he plants his victorious feet, waves his banner. and Hashes his gun on tne top oi ixwxuui mountain. I would carry you with him across the death-bearing streams of Cbickamauga. I would have you follow him in his wcarv, barelooted, V intry marcn to tne relief of Knoxvdle and back to Chattanooga. From hia point of view I would open up tho Spring campaign, where the great General initiated his remarkable work of genius and daring. I could point you to the soldier .pursuing his enemy into the strongholds of Dal ton, behind the stern impassable features of Bocky Face. Resaca, Adairsviile, Caesville, Dallas, New-Hope Church, Pickett's Mill, Pine-top, Lost Mouutoin, Kenesaw, Culpa' Farm, Smyrna, Camp-ground, Peach-tree Creek, Atlanta, from so many points of view, and Joneeboro, are names of bettie-flelds, upon eacn oi wnicn a soldiers memory dwells. For upwards of a hundred rinvH he scarce! v rested from the conflict He skir mished over rocks, hills and mountains; through mud. streams and forests. For hundreds or miles ne gave his aid to dig that endless chain of intrenchments which compussed every one oi tne enemy s lorunea positions. He companied with those who com na ilea the obstinate foe on the front and on the flanks of those mountain fastness which the enemy had deemed impregnable, and he had a right at last to echo the sentiment of his indefatigable leader, "Atlanta is ours, and fairly wen." Could you now have patience to turn back with him and fight these battles over again, behold his communications cut his railroad destroyed for miles and miles; enter the bloody fight of Altoona, follow him through : the . forced marches, via Borne, Ga., away back to Resaca, and through the obstructed gaps of the mountains into Alabama, you would thank God for giving him a stout heart and an unflinching faith In & just and noble cause. Weary and worn, he reposed at Atlanta, on his return, but one single night when he commenced the memorable march toward Savannah. The soldier has become a veteran ; he can march all day with his musket his .knapsack, his cartridge-box, bis haversack and canteen upon his person ; ' his muscles have become large and rigid, so that what was once extremely difficult he now accomplishes with graceful ease. This fact must be borne in mind when studying the soldiers' marches through Georgia and the Carolinaa. The enemy burned every bridge across stream after stream; Uie rivers bordered with swamps for example, the Ocmulgee, the Oconee, and the Ogechee were defended at every crossing. That they were passed at all by our force, is due to the cheerful, fearless indomitable private soldier. Oh that you had seen him as X have done, wading creeks a half mile in width and water waist deep, under fire, pressing on through wide swamps, without one faltering step, charging In line upon the moat formidable works, which were well defended I You could then appreciate him and what he bos accomplished as I do. You could then feel the poignant sorrow that I always did feel when X saw him fall bleeding to the earth. I must now leave the soldier to tell his own tale among the people; of hia bold, bloody work at McAllister againat the torpedoes, abat-tis, artillery and musketry; ot his privations at Savannah; of his struggles through the swamps, quicksands, and over the broad rivers of the Carolinaa ; of the fights, fires, explosions, doubts and triumphs suggested by Griawold-ville, Rivera and Binnaker's bridges, Orangeburg. Congaree Creek, Columbia, Cheraw, Fay-ettevUle, Averysboro, and Bentonville. I will leave him to tell how his hopes brightened at the reunion at Goldsboro. How hia heart throbbed with gratitude and joy aa the wires confirmed tbe rumored news of Lee's defeat so soon to be followed by the capture of tbe enemy's capital and of his entire army. I will leave him to Cell to yourselves snd your children how he felt snd acted; how proud waa his bearing; how elastic his step as he inarched In review before the President of the United Statea at Washington t I would do the soldier Injustice not to say that there was one Mung wanting to make his satisfaction complete, tnd that was the sight of ths tall form of Abraham Li-tcoLjf, snd the absence of that bitter recollection which be could not altogether exclude from his heart that ae had died by the hand of a traitor assassin. X have given you only glimpses of the American soldier aa 1 have seen him. To foel the full force of what he haa done and suffered, you should have ao-eompanied him for the last four years. You ahoald have stood upon the battle-fields during and after the struggle: and yon ahould have completed year observation in the army hospitals, snd upon the countless grounds peopled with the dead.- Ths maimed bodies, the multitude of graves, the historic fields, the monumental atones like this we are laying to-day, after all are only meagre memorials of the soldiers' work. God grant that what he planted, nouriahed, and has now preserved by his blood I mean American liberty may be a plant dear to ns sa the apple of the eye, snd that its growth may not be hindered till Us roots are firmly set in every State ef this Union, snd tfS the full fruition of its blessed fruit is realised by men of every name. color and description in this broad land. Now as I raise my eyes and behold the place where my friend and trusted commander. Gen. Sitiolm, fell, let me add my own testimonial to that of other, that we lost in nim a true patriot, a true man, a rxNrrpiata.uenerai. and a thorough soldier. Upon him and the others who died here for their country, let there never cease to de scend the most earnest benediction or every American heart Let me congratulate this nobis Keystone State that it was able to furnish such tried snd able men aa KmoLM. who felL and MXADE, who lived. to ffuide na sueensjiftilly through this wonderful snd hotly contested battle. In the midst of all conflicts, of all sorrows and triumphs, let us never for an instant forset that there Is a God in kteaven, wnoae arm ia strong to help, whose balm la sweet to assuage; every ttain. and whose love embraces all joy. To Him, then. let us look In gratitude and praise, that it has been His will to greatly blees our nation ; and may this monument ever remind ns and our posterity, in view of the tact that we prevailed? against oar enemies. that righteousness exalte th s nation, but sin is s reproach to any people. Oen. Howard's address was most warmly received. and was followed by CoL Charles O. ' Halpiwe, who read the following beautiful poem, written for the oc casion: WM BT CHART.K- O. HAUnfE.

Ths ceremonies had now lasted until nearly S o'clock, snd were now brought to a close by a benediction from Ser. D. T. Cabjiahaji, of Gettysburgh.
