Good Soldier of Jesus Christ
Dr Chapin in the Camp.
Rev. Dr. Chapin preached in
the large tent encampment of the Anderson Zouaves, situate in Union Square,
yesterday morning. He spoke from the text “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a
good soldier of Jesus Christ, (2d epistle to Timothy, chap. II.v. 3). Our
eloquent Universalist divine was listened to by a large and devoutly-impressed
assemblage. He expatiated in warm and vigorous language on the duties, the
trials and the hardships of a soldier’s occupation, and on the rewards and
glories of a faithful soldier’s services ; and exhorted such of them as had
devoted themselves to military life to fight the good fight manfully, being
steadfast to the end.
