Grnnt a Firm Believer in provl- ilentlnl Interference!. ICOPVUIGOT, ISO!.] A short time a^o the writer, of this paper was walking with an intelligent young man through the crowdedstreets of New York-, we were conversing upon ordinary topics as suggested by. our contacts and surrounding 1 , when he without any apparent connection slackened his gait and asked: "Do you think that Divine Providence interposes in events, in war for example?" The writer answered: "Surely.^ God is everywhere and in every thing." He replied: ' : It may be so, but with my daily associations and adverse influences it is hard to believe in any Divine Presence." Within an hour after that time and conversation a paper was, solicited upon the subject: "Providence in War." To Israelites and Christians the Old Testament Scriptures furnish abundant material of the direct and indirect interposition of the hand- of God, from the times when Abraham, under Divine favor and blessing, sent out his trained OKtT "GEHUINE Has our Z Steep la ^ed on froat of J.

I? bands of servants to recover his nephew's belongings, through all the battle-fields under Moses when en route to the Promised Land, through the fierce conflicts of .Joshua and the judges 'of Israel, the wars of Saul, David and other kings to the close -of the Maceahers superb and courageous efforts to gain and retain the* beloved possessions of their fathers. . •When the people of God did that which- was-rightin the sight of God, Be blessed them in rich abundance and success at^ tended their arras. When the people forsook the Lord their God, as Solomon had predicted, success did not attend their arms. If we study the subject of idolatry as herein set forth, we will have a very complete mirror in which are reflected the general and special providences of the Great Knler in human affairs. The worship of an idol—be it sun, moon, stars, man, woman, mountains, rocks, carved images, bulls, heifers, calves, birds or other animals, or things however adorned with gold,'silver or precious stones, always has lowered the soul's standard. The first strong commandment for Jews, Mohammedan or Christian is: "Thou shall have no other gods before ' Me!" Oence, as far as we can trace the facts of history, profane, secular and djvine, we find that nations and rulers •whose people have lowered their standard and become corrupt, have, sooner or later lost their courage, their patriotism, their prowess, their virtues. When finally the Lord the Almighty has withdrawn his favor and blessing, as' in ancient Israel, in Egypt and old Komei there comes a crumbling to pieces and a scattering to the four winds. Ten thousand are driven by a thousand and no Goliath has been able to save the fln-hting forces. Now we may write for "Idolatry" "Corruption,'" and declare without fear of contradiction that soon or late, but, as sure as there is existence, "Corruption" will enervate and destroy the defensive forces of any people. When there is no Immanuel (God- with-Man) there is something else. For Love of God and Country read; "Love of business," "love of gold," "love of great possessions," "love of sell. These worshipers flourish for a tune like a green bay-tree. But look again! They' are not. Children have varied the corruption carrying it perhaps intomag- nificent display and a vain show; but grandchildren comminute and,dissipate the whole upon the wings of the wind while they themselves retain little, if anything, but imbecility. But where Is Providence in all this? If is simply this: Not a sparrow falleth, to the ground without our- Father's-notice. He has made it so. In.all physical laws, the Great Designer's presence is usually admitted for it is sensibly felt. But when spiritual force comes in from. God, there is a mote uncertain hold as to which is the monition of ; my own mind, of my own conscience, .and which is the monition of the.Divine Spirit? What matters it? As,I conceive it the conscience could.have no play, no force- without the Eternal Presence? As light is essential .to this earth, so is the Eternal Light essential to the human mind- essential to the activities of the human conscience. _ .". The compass guides the shipj but intelligence adjusts and regulates the compass. Without adjustment and regulation the ship will drift and probably finally be wrecked.

Let this common conscience lose ^the U<»ht of OivinK presence and munition, the army drifts and will finally ba wrecked. Its compass is out of adjustment. Us intelligent regulator is not holding the compass in its position. When the Lord adjusts and holds the common conscience there must always be a veritable success. . • The battle of Bull Kun was the writer's first experience under fire. He stood with his brigade by the well- known blacksmith shop, a few miles behind the main lines, in reserve, waiting orders with his brigade. The artillery made the neighboring woods resound, and the upper air was filled with shrill sounds—men anticipating great danger to life and limb grew pale. The writer was at first overwhelmed; his limbs grew weak and trembled .and there vyas literally no strength in him. A feeling of shame and sorrow then filled his heart; for he had not dreamed of such senseless weakness as this, but he had no power in himself to rouse his manhood. Then instantly it occurred to him to lift his heart in prayer to One who cetainly was able to succor him and prepare him for the trials now so near at hand. He well remembers the substance of that prayer- "0. Godl fill my heart with Thy spirit and enable me to do my duty." _ Swifter than the whizzing bullet, quick as the lightning and brighter than the sunbeam was the powerful response. \Vordscan not express it, but it came in effects. All fear and the consequent results of apprehensions at once disappeared from his body and soul. The prayer was heard, the sad condition of human weakness did not recur in that mode during the great war. Was that a special act of Providence? Certainly "special," but. precisely ac- cordin"- to God's promises and according to His° spiritual law, which is often enunciated in the Bible, to-wit.: "Call upon Me in the time of trouble and 1 will hear thy petition." An army officer who had just had his len- almost severed from his body began to°cry oat: "0! Lord have mercy on me, have mercy and help me^to bear this." He saw the eye of a.Christian friend fixed compassionately upon him while h'e was trying to give him some air. Catching the scent of sympathy the wounded officer smiled and said: "One always does so in trouble, then only he remembers and calls upon his Saviour." "Why shouldn't he? Until I was afflicted I went astray," his friend said. Since that day that officer has been a faithful servant of his Saviour. In his wounded condition Our Father found him and healed him. Such instances that are known among both Union and Confederate soldiers are numerous, and doubtless the Heavenly Father who ever dealeth directly with human souls,..has his own abundant multiplication- Providence exhibits his dealing with great 1 eade rs. One could not be long with General George H. Thomas without noticing this. He was wonderfully successful in his operations, especially at Mill Springs, Ky., and finally at Nashville, Tenn. A sense of responsibility and a sense of duty pressed his mind and heart without intermission. He once said to the writer: "1 can not leave the front; 1 can cot go on a furlough, though I haven't seen home nor my wife for more 'than a year. Should I leave headquarters this winter something would be sure to go wrong." Here was a constraint and an impulse beyond those which came from the ordi; nary conscience. . They kept him solid at his post out of battle and in battle. They imparted the same discipline to his men at all times and made them partakers of his imperturbable character, unconquerable in battle. These exhibitions were even more marked in General, U. S. Grant. "He must not do thatl If be 'should he would be flying in the face of Providence!" He could not swear, the feeling of God's presence was so__strong. It" inspire! him with courage when other hearts failed. It kept .him on the offensive till the sin of slavery and re- catecl against war ana a~U connected with it instantly reversed the wheels of their whole being, buckled on the armor ana wont forth, without compunction of conscience, to fields of strife. But one asks: How about the other side, where there was an equal sincerity and a like unanimity? The spirit was not the same. Yet in neither the Union nor the Confederacy was there positive clearness of" conscience. The Onion clouds would not clear till our Leader's purpose was absolute aad fixed that human bondage should be destroyed. It must always be remembered that the Lord's prophets on the subject of slavery were persecuted unsparingly in the North. Massachusetts egged these in Fanc-uil Hall, Connecticut drove them from her shores and Illinois banged them to the nearest tree. The Lord guided the terrible conflict till both North and South were brought to a re- pentwice in the ashes of great losses and superabundant affliction. Indeed, "He moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform." There is another illustration which the writer has given .before, but from its aptness he will venture to repeat. It shows how the prayers of two men who are'leaders on opposite sides may be directly answered without a violation of the idea of providential care and supervision. There were two army corps opposed to each other in the terrific conflict of Chancellorsville. The- commanders of each were known to be men of prayer. They both besought the Lord for success, always adding, "not my will, but Thine be done." Doubtless both were equally sincere. The Union General suffered a dreadful defeat and was made to pass through the dark valley of humiliation, like the prophet of old—he wanted to die. The Confederate General had an abundant success. He overwhelmed his enemy with numbers, when triumphant shouts filled the air, but in the dark wood that lay between the two armies, when he was reconnoitering during the night, 'probably for a renewal of the conflict at dawn, he fell mortally wounded and was carried to the rear .soon to die. He had gained his victory,' his life had ended in the coveted glory and his prayer was fully answered- But the Union officer feeling The Chastening Hand did not give up the prayer. Prom that time success set in upon him and his cause, and he lis-ed to see the Union restored and the blot of human slavery wiped forever from the land. So to the pleading soul it is often darkest just before the dawn. In some similar way the Lord heareth and answereth every faithful servant under His Proviclential'Sky. 0. O. HOWARD. " Continual dropping wears away the stone." The continual breaking of lamp-chimneys costs a good deal in the course of a year. You can stop it. Get Macbeth's "pearl top " or " pearl glass." You will have no more trouble with breaking from heat. You will have clear glass instead of misty; fine instead of rough ; right shape instead of wrong; and uniform, one the same as. another. You will pay a nickel a chimney more'; and your dealer will gain in;good-will what he loses in'trade; he will widen his trade by better service. Pittsbuig. . GEO. A, MACBETH & CO.
