H. Sept, 7, 1845On earth peace, good will toward men.These words are a part of the song that was sung by the angelic hosts, in presence of the shepherds, in honor of the birth of the Savior. As the pious shepherds were watching their flocks by night, suddenly a bright light surrounded them, and they were terrified by the splendor and strangeness of the scene. But soon they hear the multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will toward men.Thus was Christ heralded, and every where we find him introduced by the sacred writers as the Prince of Peace.

He comes to induce men to beat their swords into plough-shares, and their spears into pruning hooks, and no longer learn war or lift up their sword against each other. The principle of his holy religion is good will towards men - towards all men - those of our own nation and of every other nation under heaven. And to this principle it is proper that we give our attention at the present time, as the subject of war is agitated throughout our land, and we are in danger of coming in conflict with a neighboring republic. Recently some of us witnessed the departure of soldiers from this place, who, torn from their families and friends, were forced to hurry to the scene of anticipated conflict, there to encounter not only the dangers of war, but the peril of disease and a fever often fatal to those unused to the climate.

They bade us farewell, knowing not but that it was their last farewell- and that they will all return, the contingencies of war leave us little reason to expect.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
