DEATH III THE PULPIT. His Last Words "Wo Know Not What Matter la." f.mda Death, of Ra-r. 1. Hamilton. While. Delleortnir a KBirklU $rn.nn Mtrfeken Oowa la tle Midt of a Speculative Argmei en Mind, Matter Md tit Immortality of ,too Soul Biaarraptoleal Sketch Fall Text of Hla Iast Sermon. Never in the history of this city baa ttiera occurred a death so tracic. so dra matic, and surrounded by to many pecn liar, almost rjronhetic circumstances, as that of Rev. I Hamilton, yester day morning, duriDg his sermon at the Tndenendent Church. Death came to him like a thunderbolt, striking him down in the midst of an elaborate and well studied speculation upon the theories of life and its duties and the possibilities nf .n immortality after death. While thoughts that engross the human mind frnm ha rlawnin? of logical reason until reason is shrouded in the oblivion of the grave, were upon bis lips, be solved the problem of death, and w-ilked down uito the vallev of the shadow relieved of the burden of finite speculation and mortal doubt. The church, or hall, as he was viint to insist unon callioK the tructure in wh'ch ha delivered hu addresses, wn well Hlled. The Dreliminarv services btd all been concluded, and about halt-past eleven o'clock he b-gaii the delivery of his discourse, takins his text trom tne nitn chanter of St. Matthew, beioB a portion of the seventeenth ve'te,"I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill." Around him were the -iniple decorations appropriate to the celebration of Kaxter a few lilies twined with graceful ferns and trailing vinee. arranwd to relieve the monotony of color uphoUWring the pulpit. He spoke clearly, distinctly, el.iuently for twenty mimit a. readin-' a uortion of the time fr -m manuscript, and as the thoughts induced by his train of reasoning surged through hii brain, extetnporir.inx with the facility an I correct diction characteristic of his method of deli .ery. He had led up to a point in his ad lr s where, by logical conclusi -n and clcwe reasoning, the SOLUTION" OK THE MYSTERY Of the union of mind and matter was proved to be beyond the comprehension" of any huoi.tn ininJ, i; ' v'thatandinj; the research, tlie gigantic effort put "forth by the suMimest intellects of any age to penetrate the veil. He had declared that it was '"still, to the eye of human intellect, a night that has no star. That they are united, we are sure; how, we can not discover. We know not what matter is "' His voice became silent. the forefinger sought his manuscript, a blindness fell upon h;m, his brain reeled, his hands sought his throbbing temples, be stigerd back a wingle pace and fell prone beneath his pulpit, g isping, dyinjf. A shudder of fear a:id apprehension swept through the congregation, and a dozen utarted forward to assist him in his dire distress, thinking that he had b en simply overcome by a sudden, momentary faint-ness. Among the first to reach his side was .1. W. Mackie, the President of the Church organization, who observed at a (fiance that Heath was glazing the eye of hu beloved friend, and hurried away to break tha sad intelligence to Mrs. Hamilton who had remained at home that morning on account of the inclemency of the weather. Dr. Martin and Mrs. Dr. Bucknell were present, and Dr. Adams . . . . , , i i vras sent tor immediately, dui woen ue arrived LIFK WAS EXTINCT. Coroner Hamilton was then sent for and the body wa, by him, conveyed to his late home. No. 1165 Jacksen street. The news of the tragic occurrence spread like wildfire, and was known throughout the city in half an hour .after. Some one had presence of mind sufficient to remember that his- daughter, Agnes, was attending the First Presbyterian Church and suggested that a messenger be sent '.to her that tire shock of a public announcement likely to be made from the Sulpit might not be too sudden or heavy, 'his wasflone and Miss Hamilton was led from the church by Mr. G. W. Amies a few moments before someone else whis-lered the sad news to Mr. Sprecher. The congregation was singing the last hymn previous to the announcing of the benediction, and when they had concl'ided, Mr. Sprecher came forward, and with a v.uce trembling with emotion, said that he had a shocking announcement to make. Dr. Hamilton had fallen dead in his pulpit. The an-nouncement created a profound sensation, and a sigh of horr r and sorrow burst from the crowded assembly, many of whom bowed their heads and wept. The benediction was then pronounced and the congregation dispersed with sadder hearts than they had entered the sacred edifice. Dr. McLean made tha same announcement at the Congregational Church and the same involuntary D IS PLAT OF EMOTiOX Wai apparent, the same choking sigh, the same unrestrained evidences of sincere sorrow, a hundred handkerchiefs brushing the tears from ey s that had time and again rested with sincere regard upon the noble, kindly face of him wh had just passed away from their view forever. The remains of the dead minister were placed in the parlor of his home, and during the afternoon scores cf sorrowing friends lifted the winding-sheet to gaze once mora -upon the features of the man who was a brother to all men features as calm and placid in death as if a sweet, refreshing sleep had come upon him in the midst of his earnest labor. The grey hair had been brushed back from his broad forehead, and his long grey beard flowed down. upon his breast from lips that have borne cDmfort and consolation to many an aching heart in the course of along and useful life. No positive arrangements have yet been made regarding the funeral, but it is likely that it will take place from h ; Independent (Jirarcn to-morrow aiierno n at nan-uastone o'clock. If possible, Dr. Horatio Stebbins, of the Unitarian Church, San Franeiaao, will preach the fnneral sermon. The clergy of Oakland will, in all probability. Darticioat in the services, and Ma sonic honors will be given at the grave, the deceased being a member ot that tracer Order of United Workmen, who WllL JULY 9 well w m iiiviuuvi - - doubtless, also take part in the burial ceremonies. The cause of his death is at present unknown, or at least it is in doubt, some inclining to the belief-) that it was CONGESTION Or THE BRAIN, Wbue others onagiie that it was aneur ism of the heart. Five or six years ago he was afflicted with a hemorrhags of the lungs, but he had wholly recovered from this weakness, and within a week had passed a satisfactory medical examination by Dr. Stalling for admission 'to the Order of Chosen Friends. At this examina-; Hon no evidence of heart disease 'nranv kindred complaint were discover- abls. and up to the moment when ne was stricken down be was enjoying unusually - good health.

He remained lin San Jose three or four years, afterwards, about 18C5, accepting the pastorate of the First Presbyterian Church of this city. He held this pulpit (four years and a quarter) until -January. l61t, when, having uttered! sentiments considered by certain individuals comprising the Presbytery of San xJcs (Oakland being in that jurisdiction athat time), antagonistic to he tenets of the church, he was tried for heresy, and in February of the same year bewas " EXCOMMUNICATED." The sermon upon which this ' excommunication" was based were four in number, on "The Future State and Free Discussion." The first, entitled "The Knowledge of God, Eternal Life," from the text of John xvii:3, 4; thel second "Future Punishment," from Matthew xxv:46; the third, "Fear, the Foe of Love," from John iv:18; and thefourthl "The Ues and Dangers of ScepticKm," from Matthew ii:16, 17. Tuere Avere two charges of heresy upon which he wasi held accountable, the first beingthat he held and publicly expressed the "conviction, that both Scripture and reason sanction the hope ani telief that repentance and forgiveness of sins will be possible after death for souls that have not become hardened against the truth in this life. The sooond charge was that he lenied the belief that the state of the lo.-t will be one ofi eternally increasing knowl edge, capacity I and suffering. As the ac-c ise J did not deny the truth of these charges, he was judged by the Presbytery unworthy to stand in a Christian pulpit; but there was no charg-i of unfitness in any ther respect, and many thought that the rsbytery, by their action in this case, were striking a Dior at religious liberty. Under the circumstances the friends of Dr. Hamilton in infor mal consultation resolved upon the organization of a new Church anr meeting was held r ebruary lit, l&bJ, at which a Committee was- appointed to Iraft a constitution for an organization to be called the Society of the First Indepen dent Pres'.yterian Church of Oakland. This Committeee consisted of Hon. Edward Tompkins, Juidge O. L. Shafter, George C. Hotter, Prof. Henry Durant (afterwards President of the Universitv) and Rev. David McClure.. The following were, un- ter the Constitution adopted, elected Trus tees of I THE NEW CHI RCH: Judge S. B McKee, J. S. Emery, A. J. Coffee, W. C. Tompkins, John 11. Glas cock, Chas. Webb Howard, George C. Potter, H. Dorant and David McClure - names that arc intimately connected with t'ie intellectual progress of the State. The first sermon was preached by Dr. Hamilton, under this organization, in Bravton H ill, corner of Webster and Twelfth streets, his subjeet bein? "Spiritual Lib erty," from the text of Galatians, V:l. The later history of the society is well known to the people of Oakland, and it only remains o call the roll of the more prominent men whe gathered about Dr. Hamilton and by their strength of intellect and character assisted him to promulgate and perpetuate what he honestly lelieved to be the truth, as tar as mere nmte minus coma reacn. Besides those! already named, there were Prof. W. B. Kising, Gen. Geo. A. Nourse, Hiram Tubbs, J. P. Moore, Geo. E. Dornin, John I. Spear, T. J. Arnold, Samuel Williams, G. F. Allardt, Hon. Wm. Higby, W. C. ljartlett, C. W. Phelps, J. Ll N. Shepard, J. Ross Browne, W. Spanloing, lieo. J. Mitchell, u. W. Reid, Dr. E; W. Buck, Waltor BUir, C. Hopkins, Wui. H. .Jordan, and .lohn A. Swenarton. Some of these men have preceded their pastor to "that bourne rom which! no traveler ever returns." Notably amiog whom are Henry Duraut. h.d ward lorapkins, .J. Koss lirowne and Samuel WiEiauis, for all of whom li either delivered the funeral discourse or officiated prominently at J THE LAST RITES. Sometime previous to last August, the question of organizing as the First Unitarian Church of Oakland was mooted, but no definite action was t iken, and the subject wasl finally abandoned. Sine? August, the (church property having been ransferre d tio him by the 1 rustees, oa ac count of salary and other expenses incurred by him. Dr. Hamilton has been addressing his icongregation on a thoroughly independent basis, untrammeled by any organization, the original society hav- virtually disbanded, moving and act ing in what one of his congregation apt ly terms "a universal diocese," marrying, burying and counseling any and all who called upon! him and there were many who came ti him with such requests; his diocese was indeed universal. He was a man of truly independent thought and thoroughly honest convictions, seeking to penetrate, :by the force of reason, rather than j unreserved faith the problems that were constantly being presented to him in the Course of his reading or his hservation in the practical affairs of life. He was one1 of the original members of the Berkeley Club organized about eight years ago tor tiie purpose ot discussing ana nvestigating literary and scientific sub jects and composed of some of the brightest intellects in the State among whom hf stood the equal and the peer) in intellectual virility and breadth of thought. The papers read by him before this Society were considered remarkable in their line of argument and deduction, especially when bearing upon speculative philosophy in which he displayed a character of mind and reasoning powers very simiUr to Henry Diirani. He eaves a wife, whom he married about nve years g', and two sons and a daughter. the children being tbeoSspnag ot a lormer marriage. I A TOUCHING TRIBUTE. n Impromptu Memorial Service Yesterday Afternoon. Yesterday afternoon, -at hall-past two o'clock, the Central Mission - Sunday School, which meets in the parlors of the Independent Church, gathered for its regular session. The sad event which had occuired in the building less than three hours before, and the associations of meet- ng in the room where Dr. Hamilton had done so much of his life-work, caused a feeling of sorrow and grief, which fell like I 1 1' iis L t.. ...i ' m wi... a pall over the whole assembly. When the hour tor the session arrived, it was determined, instead of going through the regular lesson, that an impromptu memorial service be held as a tribute to the memory of a faithful friend and kind benefac tor to the! school. THE KXKRCI3KH Were commenced by the chanting of the Lord's Prayer by the school, after which Miss Mamie Tower and Mr. E. Pugh sang as a duet, " The Blessed JDead." Mr. J. C. Esty, the Assistant Superintendent, made a feeling prayer and tha school chanted "Brother, Thou Art Gone to Rest." An appropriate address was msde by Mr. i. S. Tower, the Superintendent, in which be referred to the solemn event commemora ed and drew some forcible lessons on the short ness and! uncertainty of hnroan life. He also referred totheliberality and kindness of Dr. Hamilton to the organization as show ing his earnestness of life aud liberality of views. Tie services which followed were solemn and impressive, and were closed by the chanting "We shall met." HIS LAST SERMON. The fallowing is the full text of the ser mon, which he was delivering when interrupted by Death: "I aim to pursue a line of thought this morning in which it will appear ttbat my view of religion lays the firmest foundations of morality; that it of fers motives far more constant in their action wnd- far nobler in their influence than those which tht-y seek to displace. I would be no men distructiomst; would not disturb the most super.titioue belief that hat restrained from wrong or comforted human becrte, unless I felt sure ot having something- better to offer, .For the clearer tinderR tending of the subject, I will endeavor to bring into view at the outset two sharply opposed theories of the uni- verse; and against tne pacisgrouna lZaJJ?'.K.?L VK"J;rr " U f reor, , t' , u x . onrl tha vparninffn oi tne i ui umu. Naturalism is the word that has come to represent the mechanical theory of the imivArae. Atoms are nenuu. iucjr are .fOTTt&llv rmtlesa. Thev cannot keep still. They slip on each other In some inscrutable way. This generates motion, not "my iu atoms, but in masses. Motion accounts for all things. All that we see, feel and are, is born of the eternal restlessness of atoms. The grip of gravitation on all objects, the globing of star mist and the revolutions of worlds, th flooding of waters, the rise of continents, the germination of vegetable life, the organization of the animal, the beaticg of the pulse, the thrill of the nerve, the thought of the mind, the purpose of the will, the ambition, hope, fear, love, pain, joy of the heart, the swet confidences of the home, self devotion to truth, reverence for God all these are but the variations oLjae r-hni.-jil motion. The vibrations- oT mat tr- if wb could onlv meaaurs-them, would account for all. . Jfothtfig :i's to be thought of as having real existence which does not come under terms ot matter ana motion. Thus. Haeckel. Buchner. Vogt, Lewes and with slight modifications of agnostic doubt, Huxley and spencer, ine tneory is simple enough, if ore could only believe it Supernaturalisro is the extreme contrast in theory. It involves the idea of specific design and purpose impresed upon every motion of matter and form of existence in nature. Of course the a?ent is external to the obiects im Dressed. It does not assume to say with certainty whether matter is eternal, or is created out of nothing by a 'power that is not material; but it teaches that a Buoreme personal win presides over nature, super-natural, that is above nature, distinct and separate from matter lv .verv attribute and duality of being. holdiner to nature. not the rela-, tion of the life to the body, but rather of the architect and builder to the structure he devises and erects, moulding world-stnn m nis nana as the potter moulds the clay, rolling new worlds into space at will, populating mem with new forms of life by special acts of creation, ruling them by special expedients, devised to meet new exigencies as they arise, now throwing A VEIL OF BMXDSESM Over certain nations or races, under which they are left to stumble onto destruction ; now coming to others with special revelations of light, which preserve them from extinction and bear them to prosperity and power; sometimes delivering individuals from awful straits by special interference with the natural course of events, and making their lives glad with every gift of ease and luxury; then leaving others, just as worthy, so far as mortal eye can see, to perish, or linger in suffering, nnder circumstances of horror that cannot be named without a thrill of pain. The laws of motion impressed upon matter are of His enactment. To Him they are not immutable. He can amend or suspend what he has male. He will do so if he sees the occasion that makes it expedient. He is infinite He m'ist be all wise. We are to assume that He has a sufficient reason for what He does. Where the mystery is darkest we must summon the strongest faith. Where the reasons why He should interpose seems to us overwhelming, we are not to say it is because He never comes to us in special interpositions, but because there is some hidden obstacle in this special case that He sees could be overcome only at the sacrifice of some more precious interest. We are to think of every event as coming to pass either as the direct act of God, or as the indirect yet clearly fnrseen result of His purpose, "or by His direct permission and refusal to interfere, when He might prevent it. He creates, regulate', rules "according to the counsels of his own will." TbeM is something pleasing in the thought of an Almighty goodness thus presiding over the universe, above or outside of nature, supernatural, able to come in with absolute power of direction, and ready to run to our help at our call; but such an idea of Hod and the facts of nature and human life, if not palpably and forever irreconcilable, present a confusion of mystery, that we can never hops to see settling into order. Faith is perpetually shocked by these facts, and reason must every moment checK its neaven-born instincts to know whv, lest its search run into presumption and" sacrilege. It lays a paralysing embargo on human inquiry; besides it is a child's conception ot God, and tends to keep us children in mental and moral growth. Ifthere.be one who will thus interfere for our little needs, we shall not rely upon the re-ources in ourselves we remain weak. The secret feeling will be in the heart, that if we choose the easier and more agreeable way, and fall into'diffi-cnlty, he will help us out. Then if he does not come to our call, the irritated disappointment and pain question his justice and cry out against his severity. We refuse to be reconciled. When that which is inevitable in the course of nature and common to man, he falls, we fling our bitter words in the face of Providence and insist that he has not dealt with us equally. ItisnoUthe view to nurture strong men and women. There may be. (I believe there is,) agreit truth in it: but the power of that trath is largely neutralized by con-i nected misconceptions. The mind refuses to rest in a blind mechanical force as the origin of aft things. Turuingto an inti site personal willabovena-ture, outside of nlatter, perpetually changing in arbitrary activities, it falls upon difficulties too dark and complicated to allow of any relief. In seeking a more satisfactory idea of the universe and of this world for which we are more especially interested to give s une rational sccount, let us frankly make these AHMISHIOXS OK ItiNORANCE From which no science or insight of the human mind, has ever yet been able to deliver us. First, we know not what matter is we talk of its properties, extension, divisibility, hardness,- weight, attraction, etc. These words are applied to impressions made in some way upon our senses; express feelings or phenomena of which we are conscious, but what the substance which bt-ars these properties is, we know not. We talk of atoms things that cannot be cut or divided. No eye ever saw one; no microscope was ever powerful enough to bring one to view - the physicist uses the word to express an idea which be is compelled to use in dealing with matter; but whether it is more than a term that covers our igaorance, we cannot say. Sir Isaac Newton intimated the opinion thst if he had machinery that could compress the atoms of our globe together so that they would touch each other, he could pack the whole earth within a cubic ?D u, TTfi ""P Hlmhohz, the greatest living master, per- baps, of the physical sciences, suggest that the ultimate particles of the sol- idest substance we see-, like gold, or granite may be relatively as distant from each other as the measurelessly separated worlds in space, and as unceasingly active. How this is I do not pretend to an opinion. It might as well be so as any other way for aught we can see. We are only su:e of our ignorance of what the thing is of which we talk glibly as it we know all about ik We do know the properties of matter, that is, our own impressions of it; and we mistake these for the substance. Secondly, as little do we- know what mind or spirit essentially is. We are conscious of certain activities going on within ourselves. We distinguish these as thinking, feeling, willing. We cannot doubt these phenomena of our own consciousness, these impressions from some cause on our inner sense. But what the agent that acts is we cannot tell. We cannot see it, touch, measure,' or weigh it. Microscope and telescope are alike powerless to detect its' presence or reveal its nature. We are sure there must be a real cause behind these effects in onr consciousness, as of our consciousness itself, but what it is eludes our search. Thirdly, we know noth ing of the matter in which mind and matter are connected. W know the fact of - their connection; the mode we cannot penetrate, - Professor Tvndall tells as that all modern researches into toe physic 1 basis of life, the functions of toe nerves and the wonderful dicovenes of the'peculiar motions in the molecules of the brain observed to be uniformity associated : with -. special ; kinds of mental action; have not brought us one step nearer, so far as be can see. to the solution of the great mystery in the nnioa of mind and master. - j. nat is stiu to tne eye ot soman intellect, s night that baa no star. -Tkat they are united we are sure; bow we can ' - ! These were the last words he ever These uttered. ff. TWU, .nwrdh innuirv. i v-. THE CSDKL1VIKED PORTION OF HTS 8EBH0N Is as follows: "Now, with these three admissions of our ignorance in mind, allow me to ssy for myself, without the claim that I represent a thought that has yet j .l u ivk made way in the world, although it is not wholly new, and I think is growing into favor, that I find myself utterly unable to conceive of matter as getting under motion or acting in any way without the force of mind, and equally unable to conceive of mind as acting or existing separate from every form of matter. Matter, by itself, it seems to me, would be dead and inert; mind, by itself, a shadow in a vacuum. If mind be a living energy in itself, I do not see how, separated from all material organization, it could send forth that energy and make it felt by any objects outside of itself. If it holds relations to other minds and other objects, I cannot conceive how those relations could be detected or expressed. I have never been conscious of one mental act that was not connected with a material medium. Experience has never taught me the possibility of such a thing, or given me the power to imagine it. To me it seems a life wholly in a vacuum, with no reality to support its feet. I am led to suspect, therefore, that the antagonism of ages between mind and matter, which both philosophy and religion have imagined, has ho real existence: that essentially they are one and indivisible; that there is no need of looking for the bridge that spans the chasm between them. lor there is no chasm. I think of the phenomena of which we are made conscious, through the senses of the body, named the properties and attributes of matter as one phase of a hidden something that we do not, perhaps, cannot, know in its essential nature. I think of the phenomena that came into consciousness, as thinking, feeling and purposing, as another phase of the same e-sential substance. Feeling of physical objects and their relations is on one side; feeling of truth and moral relations on the other. The agent that feels is one. Life is in every atom, if there be an atom. Mind penetrates and vitalizes all existence. This seems to me the simple dictate of common sense, in view ot an tne tacts in the case. I know that these mortal bodies must change. Their grosser organization will dissolve. All experience and observa tion teach me that they will crumble back to earth. But my thought does not follow a spiritual tenant as dislodged from the ihtUv and floating away into a shadowy. bodiless existence. I find myself compelled to hold with Paul, "that there is a spiritual body;" and that, as mind and mat ter are ene and inseperable here, so they will remain foreverraore. There ;s.re forms of matter, we know, too subtile for our physical senses to detect. It may well enough be, that God hath prepared a body for the 8pirituul life as it hath pleased Him. And now, as we approach the final thought which " has been held in view through" this whole dUcussion, a mood of reverence becomes us we are nearing- the ""Holy of Holies." We may well stand in this attitude i)f Agas-iz at the opening of his summer school on the Isle of Penikese. The de vout scientist, as he gathered bis pupil around him to begin the studies from which they all hoped so much, called upon them to bow their heds together in siler.t prayer for the blessing of God upon their undertaking, A WHITTIER HAS PICTURED THE SCENE: "Said the master to the youth, 'We have come in search of truth, Trying, with uncerts n key. Door by door of mystery; We are reaching through tlis laws, To the gariueut-beni of cmute, Him, the endless, unbegun, The unnamable, the One Lijfht of all our liirhtthe source, Life of iifo, and force of fores. . Whit the thought that underlies Nature's marking ami disguise, What it is that hides beneath Blight and bloom, and birth and death, Of our weakness made aware, Oa the threshold of our lask. Let us light and guidance ask. Let us pause in silent prayer," no, tnat we may be guilty ot no irrever of ence, l would have a silent prayer throw our soul open to the light, as we contemplate the conclusion for which the preceding thoughts have prepared the way. As we do not think of our own minds as separate from matter, no more should we, if lam right, think of the Infinite mii.d as separate from matter. God n-t ouinide of nature, sifper-natnral. but rather in nature, tn-natural. if I may c iio a word. He is immanent in matter eternally in every particle and atom, every particle and atom in Him. Separation of the Infinite from any substantial existence is unthinkable. We must interpret Deity from our own being His thought from our thought; His sens of moral truth from our sense of moral truth; His conscious existence from our conscious existence. We have no oher standard. We can no more conceive of Him as acting ipithout a medium, separate from all medium, than we can conceive of a finite mind act ng without a medium. We think not of His Personality as lost in matter, but of all nature as lifted up into Hw Personality, and instinct with thought, feeling and puipose in every particle and a'om as being inseparable from God. Not a sparrow fails without Him. not a tint on lily or rose but is His touch, not a heart beats but by His will and power. In this view, hew near is God brought to us! The forces of Nature are His activity. The grand order and laws of the Lrnivt rse, unswerving forever in their uniformity are HIS IMMUTABILITY. The pain they bring to transgression is His justice,. The healing they bring to repentance and obedience is His mercy. The unconscious assimilation of the very food we eat is His act. It takes place through the constancy of forces of which He is the life. Physically He lives in us and we in Him. How instant, also, does this view assure the retribution in us of every wrong we do ! To be in harmony with the indwelling God is toe highest good. lo do wrong is to thtowdi&cord into this harmony. It de ranges the organic life. It organizes disor der in the morsl being. The worst effect of a wrong is instant upon the voluntary purpose or Consent to the wrong. It is in that purpose or consent. Nothing that follows as an external consequence is worthy of a thought com pared with this. It lowers the moral be ing. 1 he pain that may come in the wake of this wrong is not an evil. It is a good. It is meant to check and cure the real evil. Pain is no more an evil than pleasure. Both are meant as incentives to do riirfit. each in its own way the one to restrain thn other to impel. No pain that was ever felt or ever will be felt in this world, is evil in itself. The only thing that harms u is the purpose to do wrong, and thst harm is instant with the purpose no forgiveness can save from it, for it is already suffered; no cure is possible, save ceasing from the wroug. Then the soul may return into the divine harmony, yet with lowered fH-ade of being and joy. This is the morality for which this religion lays the foundation." FALLEN 1ST THE HARNESS. The following tribute to the memory of the dead is contributed by a friend: It is a glorious death f-r a man laboring in the field of thought and a better Christian morality to fall with his harness on, io the midst of his great work, among his warmhearted friends and admirers with the words of wisdom on bis tongue. Such was the sudden death yesterday of Rev I ,. Hamilton, woo was stricken down iu the midst of a discourse which had warmed the hearts of his hearers to a flow of religious fervor, falling at his post in the pulpit of his own church. The silver cord was loosed when giving forth its most musical and ennobling vibrations; the golden bowl was broken when seemingly full of the waters of . life; the pitcher was broken at the fountain from whose depths words of wisdom had f r so many years been drawn for the- instruction and delight of his hearers. While the echoes of bis silver vaice sounding in the corridors of the church, and the words of truth were mostly in the hearts of bia hearers, a voice from the inner temple, from the Holy of Holies called, to nun. Come up hither, thy work is dene on earth; enter into the reward vouchsafed the faithful servant.

BilwardKlmbiillin One Day Raises Nearly Three-fourths of the Debt on the lrst Congregational hurcb. Edward Kimball, the noted church 'debt raiser," did a good day's work yesterday at the First Congregational Church, pnd succeeded in making it a certainty that the enormous debt of 45,000 now standing on the Church, will be taken up to the 1 st cent. He made an earuest request that none of the names of the subscribers be published, and gave instances where it had resulted in great harm. He told how the experience of the last h ve years at the Kast had shown the danger of allowing church debts to accumulate, and made a strong appeal to the congregation to knock off the manacles that fettered their own church. The. practise of incurring church debts had been aimos entirely dropped at the East, and there was a strong feeling iu existence against it. f rowing out of the experience of the past, 'he removal of a church debt was like the cutting out of a cancer. If it was not taken out by the roots it would most assuredly prove fatal. Up to five o'clock vesterday the subscriptions were: Two of 2,500; four of S2.00J; ne of 1,500, and eight of 4f 1,000-making up a total of $22,500. No subscription is binding on anyone until the whole amount of $45,000 is subscribed, but when that is done every promise becomes a legal obligation, whether any of the others are fulfilled or not. Last night one subsciption of 1,000 was obtained, also one of $300, ten of $500 and several of $250 and smaller sums, amounting in all to about $9,000' SUPERIOR COURT- Department One, Judge A. M.

"The Cross, ti Skiex." Grave, the Eastr Services at St. Psal', St. John's, the First Presbyterian Church, St. Andrew's, St. Patrick's, the Sacred Heart, and the Church of tbe Immaenlato Cob-ct-ptien Snaday School FestivalsDecorations. "Made like Him, like Him we rise: Ours the cross, the grave, the skies." The dawning of Easter in this city was scarcely typical of the gladness of the occasion". Murky clouds obscured the brightness of the sun, and during the day heavy showers drenched the streets and ran off in muddy streams through the gutters. But the weather had no deterring effect upon the congregations of the various churches, and the various places of worship were all 611ed to overflowing with young and old, all eager to participate in the gladsome Christian festival. The more elaborate services were held in the Episcopal and Catholic Churches, and all the Churches, irrespective of denomination, were handsomely decorated, mot of the pastors preaching from texts appropriate to the occasion, tbe choirs singing music expressive of the resurrection and its svmbolic import. Regarding the origin of Easter, it may b of interest to know that astronomer' state that it falls this year upon the anniversary ot the actual date, April yth, A. D. 30. The only real doubt among Christians in regard to the resurrection, is whether it occurred A. D. 29 or 30; astronomy demonstrates that the full moon, which fixed the date of the Paschal, in S.itb, fell on Saturday. April 16th, which would be inconsistent with the circumstances as narrated ill the Gospel. In A: D., 30, however, the moon became full was on Thursday. April 6th. on which day the Feast of the Passover was cele brated, and the subsequent events brought about the resurrection on the morning of the 9th, whiuh being the first Raster would render the anniversary commemorated yesterdsy an exact recurrence of the event. It may not be generally known that the name Easter is supposed to be derived from Ostara or Eastre, a goddess, whose festival the old Saxons celebrated at the. same season as the Christian festival. The musical programmes of the various churches were published in full in The Tribune of Saturday and it now only remains to give a general review of what occured during the celebration of the festival. ST. pall's church. The edifice was thronged yesterday morning with earnest worshippers long before the hour of service, at which time Oakland Commandery of Knights lemplar, o. 11, representatives and successors of the defenders of the Holy Sepulchre, to tbe number of fifty strong, filed into the church, with doffeil chapeau and stately tread, to join the worship of the Christian religion to which tney are saia to be vowed and bound After the imposing services of the church the full programme of which appeared in The Tribune, after which, the rector said that- he would only make a few remarks, leaving his regular Easter sermon to the end of the Octave. He spoke of the asso. ciation of the festival, hoary with the age of 18 centuries, with the past as evident in the present, fresh and fragrant with joy and hope as when tbe women and dis ciples learned that the Lord had risen in deed. He then traced the connection between the passover of Iraelitish history and the Easter fact of the church, concluding with a peroration upon the leson taught bv the resurrection to the people of earth. The chancel decorations were extensive and beautiful. A large cross ot lilies, camelias and white lilacs. relieve! by the emerald of laurestinus and smilax, formed a center piece above the rector's seat, the arcbeson either side being trimmed with lilac, ferns and pepper plant. lhe panels of the arches were adorned with the mitre and scroll, in bluck and gold. The readiig desks were garlanded with geraniums, pinks and almond blossoms, and the chairs with crosses of the same. The font was tastefully decorated with delicate uj.iiJens hair fern, smilax, dainty blossoms, buds and pinks twining grace fully about a miniature cross. Each side of the chancel was adorned by great clusteis of lilies and evergreens, above which rose staves bearing silk heraldic banners of crimson and gold, tbe one on the right inscribed, "Christ, the First Fruit," the banner on the left, 'Tie Prince of Life." The :Bishop's chair was hung with a J wreath. The carol service was held at three P. sr., drawing a large attendanca. A processional opened- the service, the children bearing inscribed banners of various hues, followed by the carol "'Brightly Gleam Our Banners.'" After devotional exercises, the following carols were sung: "Sing Sweet Carols Night is Past," "Then and Now' "Allelulia" and "We Marth, We March." Morning service was held to-day, and the annual parish meeting, for the election of vestrymen fo,r the ensuing year, will be held in the Sunday School room this evening at 7:30. ST. JOHN'S CHURCH. St. John's Church was handsomely decorated yesterday with flowers and evergreens. Easter is recognized by the church as a white-flower festival, and accordingly St. John's was chiefly decorated with lilies and daffodils, and such other white flowers as the somewhat backward season afforded. Over the altar tbe motto "Christ is Risen" was worked in flewers. The lectern and font were bsndsomely draped with flowers, and louquets were placed at ea ih window. The banner of Sf. John was hung on one side of the chani el, and a large cross of " white lilies was susit:nded iu front of the organ galleiy. Much credit is due the ladies of the church, whose deft fingers wove the tasteful emblems with, which the church was adorned. The musical services were rendered with the customary excellence for which St. John's Church has become proverbial. The programme bas been already published. In the evening a Sunday School festival was held, at which the Rev. Dr. Woart, United States Army Chaplain at Angel Island, addressed the assembled c ngregation. The report of the Treasurer, Benjamin Akerly, Jr., showed balance on hand April 10, 188 J, $21 67; collections for the year to date, $128 95; total, 150 62.

The pastor, Dr. Sprecher, delivered a sermon from the text of Acts II -24 "For it wa not possible for Him to be holcfen of it" (death;, drawing instructive and appropriate conclusions from the resurrection and ultimate dominion of tbe Savior. In the evenim - he delivered hia" last lecture on M Infidel Theories Respecting the Resurrection of ChrUt." The platform and pulpit were beautifully decorated; tbe : arches over the chain beneath the organ being- inscribed " Christ, the Lord, is Risen Tivday," in pampas grass. ; In front of the ' pulpit a floral horseshoe, composed of pan siea and delicate whiteflowers, indicative of the "good luck" of the congregation in raising the debt of the church. This horseshoe rested upon - - feed of pansies, JUar de lit ? and ferns, - the whole forming a most exquisite center piece for the other decorations. On the pipes of the organ hnng a beautiful cross of cala Rliee, from which depended festoon of trailing vines, flower almond and spires.

The railing of theoran loft was trimmed with eupatorium and white lilacs festooned from a center of lilies and pinks. CBCBCH OrTHK ADVENT. The services at the Church of the Advent were peculiarly interesting; yesterday. The church was crowded, and Mr. Lee's sermon very fine. Tbe music, nnder tbe direction of Miss Littlejohn, the programme of which was published in Thk Tribunk of Saturday, ' was efficiently rendered. Without exception, this little temple was the most finely decorated in Oakland. The ladies of the Advent parish have for years had a reputation for taste in decoration which ' this yerr was ably sustained. ; The chancel was a floral bower, the windows were festooned and a bouquet was arranged at every pew. Many departed unable to obtain seats. ST. ANDREW'S CHURCH. The services at St. Andrew's Mission surpassed, in ioterest and attendance, th fondest hopes of the most enthusiastic of the parishioners. Tbe decorations and musical programme, already published in Thk Tribune, were fully and effectively carried out, The sermon of Rev. Mr. Jfvel. from the text, "Thanks be to God, wKich giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ," was an able' effort, and would have done credit to one of our largest. ehurches.
