Weffibtt ft8 the ,- ttfeooitJ.Vff, March S6, 1804.—The /Pastel- Services itt tile taberhaOle to".day were attended by immense audl* •tfitees. Beautiful floral decbrations Alfnasfc hid the pulpit from view, and •ihteigfeat organ gave forth its inoat *apturous strains in honor of the day, Itt the forenoon Rev. Dr.'falmagedeliv* 1 '«*«! an eloquent sermon, tho text be* Stttf takdii from Genesis 23 : xvii, xviii; "And the Beld of ttcbron, which was In Maclipelttli, which was before Mamre, th6 field, and the cave which •was therein and all the trees that •were in the field, that were in all the tjorders round about, were made sure •unto Abraham." At this Easter .service I ask and an : *xver what mny seem a novel question, l» wi1Ub.c.v found, before I get through, a.'practical and useful and ' tremendous question: What Will res- lirrection day do for the cemeteries? irffst, r remark, it will be their supernal beautification. At certain seasons it is customary in all lands to strew flowers over the mounds of the departed. It may have been suggested by the fact that Christ's tomb was in a warden. And when I siiy garden I do not mean a garden of these latitudes. •the late frosts of spring and the early frosts of autumn (ire so near each other that there are only a few months of jftowgrs in the field. All the llovvers we see to-day hud to be petted and -coaxed and put under shelter, or they would not have bloomed at all. Ihey .are the children of the conservatories. IHit, at this season and through the most of the year, the Holy Land is all .ablush with floral opulence. You find all the royal family of flowers there, some that you supposed indigenous to the far north, and others indigenous to the far south-the daisy And hyacinth, crocus and anemone, .tulip and water lily, geranium and ranunculus, mignonetto and sweet •marjoram. In the college at Beyront •you may sec Dr. Post's collection of .about eighteen hundred kinds of Holy r,and flowers; while amoug trees are tho oaks of frozen climes, and the tamarisk of'the tropics, walnut and •willow, ivy and hawthorno, ash and •elder, pine and sycamore. If such floral and botanical beauties are tho -wild growths of the field, think of •what a garden must be in Palestine! And in such a garden Jesus Christ •slept after, on the soldier's spear, his last drop of blood had coagulated. And then see how appropriate that all .our cemeteries should be iloralizcd and tree shaded. In June Greenwood is Brooklyn's garden. "Well, ' tlien," TOU say, "how can you make out that the resurrection <lay will beautify the cemeteries? Will it not leave them a plowed up . ground? On that day there will bo an earthquake, and \vill not this split the TWlished Aberdeen granite, as well as " the plain slab that can afford but two words, 'Our Mary,' or 'Our Charley?' " Well, I will tell you how resurrection day will beautify all the cemeteries. It' will be by bringing up tho faces that were to us once, and in our memories arc to us now, more beautiful tlian any calln lily, and the forms that are to us more graceful than any willow by tho waters. Can you think of anything move beautiful than the reappearance of those from whom we Imve' been parted? I do not care which way the tree fulls in the blast of tho judgment hurricane, or if the plowshare that day shall txmx under the last rose leaf and the last china aster, if out of tho broken socl shall «omc the bodies of our loved ones not damaged, but irradiated, The idea of the resurrection gets .easier to -understand, as I hear the phonograph'unroll some voice that talked into it a year ago, ju&t before our friend's decease. You touch the lever and then come forth the very tones, the very song of tho person that breathed into it once, but is now departed. If a man can do that, can not Almighty God, without half trying, return the voice of your departed? And if he can return the voice, why not the lips and the tongue and the -throat that fashioned the voice? And if the lips and the tongue and the throat, why-not the brain that sug* cested the words? And if the brain, tvhy not tho nerves, of which the brain is the headquarters? And if he can return the nerves, why not the muscles, - which, are less ingenious? And if the muscles, why not the bones, that are less wonderful? And if tho voice and the brain and the muscles «nd the bones, why not the entire body V If man can do the phonograph, <Jctl can do the resurrection. \V>U It be the same body that in the last day shall be reanimated? Yes, but infinitely improved. Our bodies Change every seven years, and yet m ppe sense it is the sume body. On my wrist and the second linger of my vight hand/'there ,is' a scar. I made •Uiat at twelve years.of pge, when, dis- eusted ut the presence of two wtftsT I t°« k * re<i )lot |ron ** n4 turned them off and burned them '.out, Since then my body has changed at ie4st ft half 4ozcn time's, but those WS ppye it *^bo samebwly. ™> never tyse our identity.

Afls.thet rsBnaidswitie* «fiti% the idea 6t feSttrKsclida easier, Ood Made Adam. Mew&a not fashioned after any model. There had never beefift humiitt organism, and sd thews was noltilflg tfl copy. At the fltst attempt God Wads a perfect man. He made him out df tuedust dfthe earth. If out of otdlHfti'.y dust of the earth and without a model God could wake a perfect mrin, surely out of the 1 extraordinary dust of mortal body, and with millions bf models, Ood can make each one of us a perfect being in the resurrection. Surely the last undertaking wotild not bo greater than tho first, See the gospel algebras ordinary dust minus a model equals a perfect man; extraordinary dust and plus a model equals a resurrection body. Mysteries about it? Oh, yesi that is one reason Why I believe ifc. It would not be touch of a God who conld tlo things only a's far as I can understand Mysteries? Oli, yes; but no more ab»ut the resurrection of your body .than about its present existence. I vv ill explain to you th e last mystery of tho resurrection, ; and make it as plain to you as that two and two make four, if you will tell me how your mind, which is entirely independent of your body, can act upon your body so that at your will your eyes open, or your foot walks, or your hand is extended. So I find nothing in tho Bible statement concerning the resurrection that staggers me for a moment All doubts clear from my mind. I say/that the cemeteries, however beautiful now, will bo more beautiful xvheu the bodies of our loved otics come up, in tho morning of the resurrection. They will'c'omO in improved condition. They will come up rested. The most of them lay down at the last very tired. How often you have heard them say, "I am so tired!" The fact is a tired world. If I should go through this audience, and go round tho world, I could not find a person in any stylo of life ignorant of the sensation of fatigue. I do not believe there are fifty persons in this audience who are not tired. Your head is tired, or your back is tired, or your foot is tired, or your brain is tired, or your nerves are tired. Long journeying, or business application, or bereavement, er sickness has put on you heavy wcitfhts. So the vast majority of those who went out of this world, went out fatigued. About' the poorest pi ace to rest 'iu is this world. Its atmos- pliere, its surroundings, and even ^its hilarities, are exhausting So God stops our earthly life, and mercifully closes the eyes, and more especially gives quiescence to the lung and heart, that have not had ten minutes' rest from tho first respiration and the first beat. If a drummer boy were compelled in the army to beat his drum for twenty- four .hours without'st'qpping, his officer would bo court-martialed for cruelty. If the drummer boy should be commanded to beat his drum for a week without ceasing, day and night, he would die in attempting it. But under your vestment is a poor heart that began its drum beat for the march of life thirty, or forty, or sixty or eighty years ago, and it has had no furlough by day or night; and whether in conscious or comatose state, it went right on, for it it had stopped seven seconds your life would have closed. And your heart will keep going until some time after your spirit has fiown, for tho ausoultatcr says that after the last expiration of lung and tho last throb of pulse, and after the spirit is released, the heart keeps on beating for u, time. What a mercy, then, it is that tho grave is tho place where that wondrous machinery of ventricle and artery can halt Under the healthful chomiotry of the soil all the wear and tear of nerve and muscle and bone will bo subtracted and that bath of good fresh elean soil will wash oil! the last ache, and then some of tho same stylo of dust out of which the body of Adam was constructed may be infused into tho resurrection body. How can the bodies of tho human race, which have had no replenishment from tho dust since the time of Adam in Varadiso, K«t any recuperation from tho storehouse from which he was constructed without our going back into tho dust? Factories are apt to bo rough places, and those who toil in them have their garments grimy , and. their hands smutched. But who cares for that when they turn out beautiful musical instruments or exquisite upholstery? What though tho grave is a rough place, it is a resurrection body manufactory, and from it shall comoi the rftdiant and resplendent forms of our friends on the brightest morning the world ever saw. You put into a factory cotton, and it comes out apparel. You put into a factory lumber and lead, and it comes out pianos and organs And so into the factory of the grave, you put in pneumonias and consumptions and they come out health. You put in groans and they come out hallelujahs. For us, on the final day, the most attractive places will not be the parks or the gardens or the palaces, but tho cemeteries. We are not told in svhat season that day will come- . If it should be winter, those who come up will ba more lustrous than the snow that covered them, If in autumn, those who come «p will be more gorgeous than the woods after tho frosts b»d penciled them. If in the spring, the bloom pn Which they irs'-wl 'will be 4uU » 0f W pared with the rubicund of their cheeks. 'Oh, the perfect resurrection body!

If he did not rise, how did sixty armed soldiers lot him get away? Surely sixty living soldiers ought to be able 'to keep one dead mant Blessed be God! He did got away. After his resurrection Mary Magdalene saw him, Cleopas saw him. Ten disciples in an upper room at Jerusalem, saw him.. On a mountain the eleven saw him. Five hundred at once saw him. Prof. • Ernest Kenamwho did not see-him, will excuse us for taking the testimony of tho five hundred and eighty who did see him. Yes, yes; he got away. And that makes mo sure that Our departed loved ones and wo ourselves shall get away. Freed himself from the shackles of clod, he is not going to leave us and ours in tho lurch. There will be no door knob on tho inside of our family sepulcher, for we can not come out', of ourselves; but there is a door knob on the outside, and that Jesus shall lay hold of, and, opening, will say: "Good morning! You have slept long enough! Arise! Arise!" And then what flutter of wings, and what flashing of rekindled eyes, and what gladsome rushing across tho family lot, with cries of "Father, is that you?" "Mother, is that you?" "My darlinsr, is that you?" "How you have all changed! Tho cough gone, the - * croup gone, the consumption gone, tho paralysis gone, tho weariness gone. Come, let us ascend together! The older ones first, the younger ones next! Quick now, get 'into line! The skyward procession has already started! Steer now by that embankment of cloud for tlie nearest {rate!" And, as we ascend, on one side the earth gets smaller until it is no larger than a mountain, and smaller 'until it is no larger than a palace, and smaller until it is no larger than a ship, and smaller until it is no larger than a wheel, and smaller until it is no larger than a specie Farewell, dissolving earth! But on tho other side, as wo' rise, heaven at first appears no larger than your hand. And nearov it looks like a chariot, and nearer it looks like a throne, and nearer it looks like a star, and nearer itjooks like a sun, and nearer it looks like a universe. 'Hail, scepters that shall always wave! Hail, anthems that shall always roll! Hail, companionships never again to part! That is what resurrection day will do for all tho cemeteries and graveyards from tho Machpclah that was opened by Father Abraham in Hebron to tho Machpelah yesterday consecrated. And that makes Lady Huntington's immortal rnvthm most apposite: When tbou, my righteous judge, shaltcome To take thy ransomed people home, Shall I among them stand? Shall such a worthless worm as I, Who sometimes ain afraid to die, Bo found at thy right hand? & AND BRINGS OP , St» if Old—*ofl «l* fo* Ml* fciothe*—A Injured tflfl*c*ncc tittle »ot-W6uid it be fetMd"' 9Tt>nieth1fr# - that', w , yd\i v#&8 In datfg$f? , , w ^ Maittmai-1 presume iiofe Wny? tittle Wot-I was tfcinfcin' ttiat if * burglar should break ia at^ «#*>*£ scratch on the bedpost, so he'd think there was a awful cvofts mouse in the room.—Good News.
