    Excerpt from Our Patriot Scholar: Discourse in Memory of Edward Everett, at Vespers, in the Church of the Messiah, Sunday, January 22

    The Scripture Lessons of the evening well introduce our subject. They present to us, first, the aged Samuel calling the people to bear Witness to his integrity in their service and, secondly, the Apostle Paul's comparison of the souls of the dead to the stars of heaven, so differing in glory.

    It was announced, at the close. Of our service last Sun day evening, that Edward Everett, a venerable judge in our Israel, was no more on earth, but a star 011 high, and that our tribute'wehld be paid to his memory at this time. The announcement of his death startled many of you, because unexpected, and we Were all of one mind as to the fitness of this tribute of honor and affection. The loss comes home to us all as a public bereavement and in all sympathy, without any disguise or afi'ectation, we can honestly say that we have lost a friend and benefactor. \ve_must allow, indeed, that this general grief di¿'ers very much from private grief, alike in character and demonstra tion; and that we are not aggrieved, even When a great and good man is taken away from the nation, as much as When a little child droops and dies in our home, and those merry eyes are closed, and that prattling voice is hushedin the solemn slumber of death. Yet our public sorrow is none the less real because it moves in a calmer and more universal sphere. W'e may not weep much, nor be moved to shut ourselves out from the usual round of business or society} yet we are not indifferent nor um grateful; and the very calmness of our temper may be a proof of the loftiness of the object of our meditation, and the dignity of the thoughts and affections that are stirred. \vhen a bright star sinks from sight, or even when the sun goes down, we are impressed deeply, yet not generally as near weeping as when a little ¿ower that we have been petting is snapped by the rude wind or withers upon its stem. To as Edward Everett has shone as a guiding star, and to not a few his face was sunshine. In the serene upper sphere of fellowship he was a friend to us all. Statesman, scholar, patriot, orator, moralist, Christian, he belonged to as all and we may call God himself to witness here to-night that this service is honest and affectionate - alike whilst we bless the goodness of the Almighty giver, and the richness of the gift. We render it all the more honestly and reasonably, because instead of dwelling merely upon an individual character, we meditate upon a life that opens rich lessons in the providence of God and the history of our age.
