Excerpt from One Hundred Years Ago: An Historical Discourse Delivered by Rev. George Duffield, During the Centenary Celebration of the First Presbyterian Church of Carlisle, July 1st, 1857

When he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of Zion, they shall sanctify ray name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and fear the God of Israel.-Isaiah xxix-23.

The recollection of great events passes down through many generations. After a lapse of one or two, they are wont to be celebrated in some public manner. A century possesses nothing, in itself, that merits distinction from other numbers. Nor have one hundred, or a thousand years, any natural connection with the events that loom up from the past, in solemn and affecting reminiscence. They are but marked points, adopted for computation, and affording appropriate occasion for the general consent, of those interested in them, to recall and profit by their remembrance.

The Lord himself has respected this tendency of our nature; first in the feast of the passover; and subsequently in the Jubilean festivals He instituted for Israel. Few things contributed so vastly,-to their patriotism, as citizens of the Jewish Commonwealth, to their religion, as worshippers of the Most High,-and to the glory of the nation, and prosperity of their church, as the people of God. They distinguished them above all other people of antiquity; and they promoted, greatly, their knowledge of "the one only living and true God," and their enjoyment of His fellowship."

The Saviour of sinners, also, has made this same tendency of our nature subservient to His own gracious designs. In the memorial-feast of the Lords supper, we commemorate an event, the mo.t astounding that has ever transpired in this fallen world, viz :His own death, by which He has accomplished "redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace."
