EABBI WISE, of Cincinnati, has provoked a
good deal of merriment and adverse criti
cism among his fellow Israelites by assert
ing, in a recent discourse, that the Jews are
dying out, and will ere long become extinct
The absurdity of the idea will be appreciated
by every person in the country, and we are
inclined to the belief that the statement was
made without thought. At any rate the
Jewish Messenger indulges in some pretty
severe comments on the subject, alleging
that the fact that Kabbi Wise allowed his
daughter to marry a Christian is father to
the thoughtor the apology for the state
mentthat Jews need some new blood to
perpetuate them on the face of the world.
THB scriptures inform us that there is a
time to laugh. Perhaps the scripture is
right, and perhaps the calamity that befel a
lady in Rhode Island last week was a penalty
for chosing the wrong time for cachination.
At any rate, the lady's husband brought
home a quantity of pork and undertook to
pickle it for the winter, but instead of salt,
took sngar with which to make his brine.
His mistake convulsed his wife with laugh
ter, and she laughed on until she became
hysterical and finally died. We are at a loss
to find the moral to this story. It is either
that people shouldn't use sugar to make
brine, or that people shouldn't laugh at oth
ers' mistakes. You pays your money and
takes your choice.
THE New York comic paper, Puck, has a
cartoon that is singularly malapropos in the
light of the death of Bayard Taylor, which
occurred after the paper was printed and cir
culated. It represents a naturalized Ameri
can citizen being seized upon by the Berlin
police and dragged off to prison while vain
ly appealing in front of the American em
bassy for protection, while our late minister
is in a somnolent attitude, with a mug of
beer before him. The satire expressed in
the cartoon is well deserved, and would have
provoked no invidious comment had not
the announcement of Mr. Taylor's death
come to hand simultaneously with its publi
cation. But that fact gives it a ghastiiness
that is involuntary, even to those who recog
nize its appropriateness in view of the many
indignities heaped upon American citizens
in Germany, and the lethargy of our author
ities in relation to them.
Now that Congress has adjourned may we
not hope that its menbers will devote their

The holiday season will be a merry one, we
presume, and consequently much of the dis

will hail the day with joy in fconor of the
beginning of the new dispensation. Nine
teen hundred years ago the event was herald
ed on tho plains of Bethlehem by an angel
choir who sang: "Glory to God in the high
est, and on earth peace, good will toward
men!'' And well might the event be hailed
with delight, for it marked the disappear
ance of the old regime of law and the advent
of that of lovethe overthrow of the era of
intolerance and retaliation, and the inaugu
ration of that of toleration and peace, of
good will to all people. T'lis was tidings of
great joy indeed, worthy to be communicat
ed to mortals by the songs of the heavenly
For nineteen centuries this religion has
progressed, yet to-day it is nominally ac
cepted and recognized by less than one quar
ter of the people of the globe, not more
than one-tenth of that number, however,
having by voluntary aot professed obedience
to its teachings. And yet it was intended
for all people. Can it be that the religion
itself is at faultthat it is repulsive to the
human heart, and therefore not acceptable?
This we cannot believe, for its theories are
more nearly in accord with our inborn sense
of right, and our preconceived ideas of deity
than any that has ever been devised by
human ingenuity. Its one law is the es
sence of all that is reverent towards God and
just toward mankind "Thou shalt love the
Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with
all thy soul, and with all thy mind and thy
neighbor as thyself." This is the whole
lawthe only lawof the new dis
pensation. Its slow progress, how
ever, may well set Christians to think
ing. Even in nominally Christian commu
nities but a small portion of the people are
professing Christians, and those who are,
seem to bo half hearted, quarrelsome, dis
contented and doubting. Is this not due to
the fact that those who profess Christianity
have imbibed and aot upon an erroneous
conception of that of which Christianity
consists? We well know that in the first
three centuries after Christ, the spread of
his religion was checked by neglect of the
injunction to go into all the world and preach
it. The Jews thought they were God's chosen
people, and that it was to them only that his
son waa sent the Romans refused to believe
that the gospel was Bent to any but them
the Greeks embraced the new doctrine as
being designed for them alone, and thus the
church became divided, disorganized by dis
putations, and finally almost disappeared.
For centuries it had an existence only in
name. The reformation brought a change
a revival of true religion. But almost before
it had got fairly nnder way the same disturb
ing element made its appearance. The fol
lowers of Luther held that only they were
entitled to be known as Christians the
Church of England olaimed to be the only
true catholic church the Presbyterians in
sisted that they and they only could claim
the precious promises of Christ, while the
Wesleyane, the Baptists, the Moravians and
a score of others soon appeared claiming to
be the elect, and all others heretics deserving
roasting at the stake. None of them remem
bered that when Christ was born and the
good tidings proclaimed it was announced
that the gospel was to all people.
Thus it has continued ever since. Each
decade marks the organization of a new sect
claiming to be the only true church of Christ,
as being the only people who serve God in
his own accepted way. Instead of assisting
in the spread of the gospel they
have retarded it. In foreign missionary
fields this has been especially noticeable. A
Catholic, a Methodist, a Baptist and a Pres
byterian are frequently working in the
same region. Each claims to be a Christian,
and to be anxious to oonvert the heathen
from their idolatry, but eaoh works at cross
purposes with the other. The native may
be almost persuaded to be a Christian, when
he finds himself in a dilemma. The Catho
lic pulls him this way the Methodist the
other the Baptist insists that if he would
sa^e his soul he must travel the path that
tie directs the T'resliyterian reads the five
points of Calvinism and declares that salva
tion can only be obtained by their accept
ance. What is the half-converted wretch to
do? He usually argues that if the new re
ligion has so many roads, eaoh diverging
from the other, and eaoh essential to salva
tion, he will reject them all and be content
with his idols and his sacrificial offerings.
The Christianity of to-day is not the religion
heralded by the angel hosts so many centu
ries ago and taught by him who was mar
tyred on Calvary. It is, on the contrary, a
religion of exclusiveness, not for all people,
but for a fewa religion of contentions and
of hate. In the abstract all evangelical
Christians, so-called, profess to be akin, but
yet harbor jealousies and uncharity towards
each other. Envy of the success of otheis
is a predominating feature among the mass
of those who profess Christian unity.
Is it not the duty of ministers of the gos
pel of every denomination, on this Sabbath
preceeding the greatest anniversary of the
church, to begin a new lifeto act upon the
theory that the qood tidings of great joy
shall be to all people? Can they not forget
the trivial differences of faith and creed that
have divided them for so many years, and

RELIGION JICTATEI BY ZAW.
In this country, where the selection oS
religions belief is a matter of choice*, it will
read curiously to be informed that in Eng
land, perhaps the most enlightened of mod
ern nations, it is, uader certain circumstances,
regulated by law, We all know that the
crowned head England makes oath to
sustain and uphold the established church,
i but that is a mere matter of form, descended,
from a more intolerant and bigoted age than
the present, end the oath is 'to-day more
honored in the breach than tho observance.
But a recent decision of the court of queen's
bench has revealed the fact that the citizen
has no right to the choice of his own re
ligion under certain contingencies, but must
adopt and adhere to that preScribsd by law.
A recent case in point may be briefly told.
It has been the custom when a Catholic gen
tleman and a Protestant lady intemarried,
to educate the male children in the Catholic
faith, and the female children in the Pro
testant faith. Some years ago the Duke of
Norfolk, a Catholic, married a Protestant
lady, named Ellis. Now that children have
been born to them and reared to manhood
and womanhood, the matter of their religion
has been brought before the courts. The
lady avers that at their marriage her hus
band promised that their children should be
Protestant, and she accordingly brought
them up in that faith. But the court says it
doesn't signify a bit in law what he promised.
He as father has now the right to decide
what they shall be. The matter has evoked
intense interest and feeling among the old
English Catholic families, and is not unlike
ly to prevent marriages between those of
different faith in the future. Borne has all
along been jealous of them, but the number
of Roman Catholic families of the higher
class in England has led to their breeding in
and in to such a degree that, from a sanitary
point of view, an infusion of fresh blood has
been highly desirable.
The absurdity of such a law is manifest.
There can be no objection, provided the
parents are agreed, to the education of the
children in the. Protestant or Catholic faith.
Either is good enough if lived up to. But
will not this decision produce something of
,'i disturbance in the political, as well as the
religious world? Will a man or a woman
be willing to change his or her religion at
the dictate of a court which finds that their
parents made a mistake in their education?
Surely they will not quietly submit to it.
Religionor at least its formsis merely
a matter of education. When a belief in
the truth of a doctrine becomes fixed in
one's mind, it oannot be eradicated by any
law or decree of the court. It will only
give way to better light Jor matured reason.
The folly, therefore, of attempting to change
one's religion, will be apparent to the dull
est comprehension. We are fortunate in
this country in having no such law, and no
judge who would be absurd enough to en
force it, provided we had it. In that respect
England is very far behind the times, and
the sooner she works a reform the better it
will be for her credit.

AMERICA'S BRIGHT PROSPECT*.
What the. Leading English Journal Thinks
of Our Financial Sltuatton.
The meeting of Congress at Washington yes
terday was so nearly coincident with the meet
ing of parliament at Westminster on Thurs
day next that a comparison cannot fail to sug
gest itself. Nothing is more remarkable at
brut than the contrast between the situation in
the United States and in this country. There
domestic affairs and the prosecution of a long
settled financial policy engage the public at
tention here, our foreign relations are of pre
dominant interest, and the government is en
tering upon novel and arduous enterprises for
the assertion of English power iu distant lands.
Every body in this country welcomes the reas
sembling of parliament and the assumption by
the representatives of the electoral body of
their share of responsibility in matters of state.
A very different feeling prevails in America,
where the possibility of interference by Con
gress in the financial policy of the treasury is
looked upon with regret and alarm. If the
law had not enjoined that CongresB should be
convened on the first Monday in December, and
it ihe executive had any alternative couroe be
foie it, we may be sure that the wisdom of the
legiblative branch of the government would
not now bo consulted. The business upon
which all minds are bent is the resumption of
specie payments, and this is regulated, in de
fault of subsequent legislation, by the act of
Congress of lb75, which declares that on and
atter the 1st of January next, the trpasury de
partment must pay coin on demand for all out
standing "legal-tender notes, uecter known
as "greenbacks." The President's message,
befoie approaching the vital question of re
sumption, drew a general picture of the state
of the republic He congratulated Congress
upon the preservation of peace, the mainten
ance of friendly relations with foreign poweis,
the strict observance of neutrality during the
recent troubles in Europe and Asia, the abund
ance of the harvests, the revival of industry
and commerce, and, above all, the fact that the
national credit, stands higher than it ever stood
before. The good fortune of the United States
in having little of what we know as foreign
policy is illustrated by the space winch the
message gives to the negotiation with Mexico
on the subject ot the border raids. The Presi
dent's language is conciliatory, although he
contends that stern repressive measures canuot
be dispensed with on the side of the United
States. Evidently the feverish disposition to
pick a quarrel with the neighboring republic,
which was reared with some reason while the
Democratic reaction was proceeding, has now
abated, indeed, both abroad and at home the
prospect is most encouraging, if only the na
tional finances could once more be established
on a secure foundation. The dealings with
the debt are satisfactory, and could the cur
rency be brought back to a "hard money"
basis and cleared of the complications of the
silver coinage, there would be no reason to
question the prediction that America is enter
ing upon anew era of prosperity.

It Seems to be a Little Short at Present
The Danger of Clergymen Tampering
With Temporal Affaire.
1 Cincinnati Special, Dec. 20.
Bishop Purcell and his brother Edward are
just now unable to pay moneys deposited with
them by the Catholics. A week or so ago a
note given by the Rev. Purcell went to protest
at one of the banks, then another and another
and a few days later there were
riled in the office ot the recorder
mortgages hy the Fnrcclls to the
amount of $75,000. Purcell had done a bank
ing business with Joseph Hemann, the, Ger
man banker who failed a short time ag and
caused a run on them. The number of deposi
tors is variously estimated at from 8,000 to
6,000, and the liabilities are guessed "at
$1,000,000. These figures are only estimates.
Father Purcell sayB it is not necessary to
state the number of depositors or liabilities. It
is really not the business of the public. Be
the depositors few or many, they cannot lose
in the end. The church has too much prop
erty to allow this. He said: "We shall soon
be able, I hope, to pay all demands, and I am
suie, at least, that no one will lose anything
by us, as there is no mortgage, or judgment,
or hen on our churches or institutions, whether
charitable or educational. There can be no
danger of loss to any one.
The reporter called upon a number of busi
ness men, bankers, and others. The general
impression seemed to be that while the arch
bishop's affairs were in a bad condition just
now, they would finally be adjusted without
loss to the depositois, though this might be
sometime in the future. Many wealthy mem
bers of the church here would doubtless come
forward to aid the archbishop, who is beloved
by all in this his time of trouble.
It is said, on pretty good authority, that the
venerable Reuben Springer, whose magnificent
donations to the Cincinnati public, and to art
in Cincinnati have made him famous, has de
clared that the archbishop shall not Buffer
financially, even if it cost him around million.
It is asserted Springer has already handed to
the archbishop a check for $40,000.
Mr. Springer is a devout Catholic, childless
and a widower. He is able to command seve
ral millions in cash on short notice. It is hard
ly probable he will allow the church to suffer.

A CHRISTMAS HYMN.
Hail! glorious day, hail! new born King,
By prophets long foretold,
Thy church the glad refrain will sing
Till time itself grows old.
On this auspicious day was born,
And in a manger laid,
Th' incarnate God, Who, on that morn,
His love for man displayed.
Our faith in Him let us confess,
By it the world defy,
'Twill make us strong when cares oppress,
If we in Him rely.
Hail! glorious day, Hail! Prince of Peace,
Our Savior and our King,
Our joyful hearts can never cease
Thy wondrous love to sing. BETA.

A COUNTERFEITER'S LUCK.
The Wife of the notorious Pete McCartney
Applies for a Divorce in a Chicago COH-T*
The Career of the Coney Man.
[Cnicago Times, Dec. 19.J
A bill for divorce was filed on yesterday by
Martha McCartney, in which she states that
Hhe was married to Peter McCartney Octo
ber, 1864. In October, 1875, her husband, un
der an alias of Charles Lang, was convicted of
counterfeiting at La Porte, Ind., and was sen
tenced to serve fifteen years in the Indiana
State penitentiary. She therefore asks to have
a release from him, and also that she may have
the custody of her three children.
McCartney, or "Old Peter," as he was called,
had a wild and checkered career prior to his
being jugged. He was one of the shrewdest
and mast dangerous counterfeiters that infest
ed the western country, working principally
Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Iowa, Wis
consin, and even in Minnesota. He was
probably the only "coney" man who ever did a
complete and thorough "coney" business on
his own hook. As an engraver his record stood
high Tnere have been better hands at this
branch of bis professionold Nelson Dnggs
and Tom Ballara could get up abetter plate
but none of them were capable of engraving,
printing, and "shoving" their own money as
old Pete was in the habit of doing. At one
time he owned a farm ana considerable prop
erty at Neo^a, 111., where it is believed he did a
great deal of his work. While there he qot up
the celebrated $20 treasury note fiich, at the
time, was the most perfect counterfeit in circu
lation. But McCartney did not
confine himself to manufacturing
and dealing paper money. He was a har
money man as well as a greenbacker. He had
complete sets of dies for making standard gold
coins, and he did something in silver, which,
however, was rather small business for mm.
For a great many years Old Peter operated
without beim -enou&ly mokfcted by the secret
service operati\ es. Up to Washburn's admin
istration, although he had been arretted several
times, he ah\ajb managed to square accounts
by turning up some plates, dies tools, orcoun
Urteit money, probably crusMnx the palm of
tha sagacious detective wuh some genuine
chink as well. At one time Peter was nearly
ruu down in Missouri, and he agreed to meet
!he detective at midnight on the edge
of a oorn-field. According to the -tor the
opaiator told of the interview, Peter came to
the place of meeting armed with a stiot~i:un, a
biace of pistols, a bowitJ-knife,
and other lm
plements of modern warfare, took up a posi
tion on one side of the fence and kept the de
tective on the other. Under the circumstances
the operator did not try to molest McCartney,
who ga\e up si.m dies for the manufacture of
counterfeit money and an old plate which was
of no earthly use to anyone since the bills
printed Irom it were of imptifect a charac
ter as to be easily detected. Subsequently
Chuiley Anchisi, who was one of the sharpest
blades in the secret tcrvice, happened to be
iu Southern Illinois, and heard that McCartney
was on t'ls farm at Neoga. As there was suf
ficient evidence agsmst him to secure a convic
tion, Charley conceived the idea ot getting
Peter to Chua^o and arresting mm. The de
tect.ve wut into the office ot the operative in
this city. The assistant was the oaly occupant
at the time, and Anthisi had very little trouble
in inducing him to go out for a couple of cigars.
While the supernumerary was absent Charley
glanced ovei the papers scattered on the desk,
and came across a letter from Peter to the
effect that be was ready to come to
Chicago whenever he was wanted.
Anchist telegraphed him to come at once, ar
rested him at the depot, and turned him into
jail. He then sent a dispatch to the depait
meutat Waamugton, and was very much sur
prised two or three daysatterward to receive an
order foi the oisehar^e of the counterfeiter.
No explanation was given for this action.
Peter alwajs seemed to have some peculiar
influence with the secret service department at
Washington, by which he managed either
to elude arrest or to escape pun
ishment after he was arrested. Early
in Washburn's administration he was arrested
in St. Louis by tieoige Alfred Mason, who was
subsequently himuell arrested for shoving"
counterfeit money. He had had dealings with
old Peter, but a dippute arose between them,
anl Mason took this means of getting even
with his former pa). McCartney was "incar
cerated in the city prison of St. Loui- He-
made several effom to trade with Wabbburn,
but without effect. In a short time, however,'
he found some other parlies who
served the same purpose and on
the night of the 5th of February,
1S75, altnough suffering from wounds received
at the tinif of his arrest, and being unable to
walk without a crutch, he managed to uot out
of his cell, break a hole through the wall of the
jail, and escape. He was recaptured in Texas,
but escaped trom the United States marshal by
jumping from a flying railway train. ThiB was
reported at the time, but people who do not
place implicit trust such yarns were inclined
to believe that he fixed his custodian. Old Peter
also escaped from a train in Pennsylvania in a
similar manner, only his feet were in lions,
and it vfuM never satisfactorily explained how
he was able to make tne leap. He was again
arrested in Wisconsin and succeeded in making
another escape. Finally, through the shrewd
opeiations ot Detective Rathbonr-, of the secret
service, he was taken in Indiana, tried and
convicted, and is now serving out his term of
fifteen ypars the Michigan City penitentiary.
Since then nearly fveryone who hi worked
with old Peter has been run down and impris

FOOD JKOU THE GU1LLOTIST*.
A nrrtbl Crtmr in France Murdering
a Mother and Hui.Ung Jltr Daughter.
A fiendish crime came before the assizes at
Doubs, France, a lew weeks ago. The accused,
named Naehm, wa3 a very powerful man, and
was considered dingerous when under the in
fluence of drink. In the same village was
young girl named Celina Rondot. a blonde of
M, and very i repossessing. Nachm took a
fancy to the gir.', and, as she related in her
testim ji.y, seduced herif it can be so called
by thrfats against her relatr.e?, and by em
ploying torce. Everybody in the neighborh. od
wa., afr,ud of the ruffian. Lost September
thf-re was a village festival at Fontaine, and
Celma danced with the young men of the
place, but refused to dance with Nachm
This enraged the latter to an nncortroilable
degree, and, after the dance he followed the
girl to the Louse ot her parents, abusing her
the whole way. As she wa, going he
seized her by the hand and sajd. "You'll
never die except by my hands." Next morn
ing he came and walked round the house, and
in the evening he came back. The father of
Celma had the mean time gone to the mavor
to acquaint him with the threats made by Na
ohin. The narrative of what occurred, as given
by Celina, is very dramatic. Her mother and
herself were the kuchen in a state of mortal
tear they were shelling beans, when they beard
a man step outside next a pane of glass was
broken, and a man was heard breaking into a
barn which communicated to the house. Hur
ried stens were then heard, but the young girl
was in time to bolt the door. The terrified
mother, however, losing all prudence, opened
the street door and altemptod to fly. blKe a~
met at the door by Nacbin, who
brandished a hatchet. She tried to cry
and the daughter rushed to her. Na^
onin raised the hatchet and struck the
mother. Three fingers fell to the ground. He
struck a second blow, and the woman fell to
the ground without a cry he had split the
skull. The young girl, with this horrible scene
before her, tried a ruse, aud spoke to the mur
derer as it she had not remarked anything.
She told him to wash his hands. "No," said
he, that's only your mother's blood. I have
just killed her, and I am about to do the same
to you." Betore doing so the brute wanted to
satisfy his passions. He knocked down the
girl, kicked her, beat her, and then violated
her. On her supplications for mercy he al
lowed her to rise. She ran out, but was fol
lowed and again knocked down. Again he let
her go. and she ran into a wine-store imploring
protection. Nachm followed her and de
manded drink. The wine-seller, named Yeau
ney, and his servant, both ran away aud
left the girl again alone with the mffiau. Again
the murderer knocked the girl .iovn, throttled
her, and sat dow~ on her. Finp.lly he left her
for dead. Then the brute walked down the
village. When the girl recovered there was no
one to protect her and Mine. Yeauney advised
her to hide IZ. a barn. There she remained till
midnight, when she was brought to her father's
house. Nachm was by no means drunk. The
procuieur general questioned him, but he pre
tenaed to forget the circumstances, though ac
knowledging his crime. It was shown that the
crime was premeditated. The advocate called
for a merciless (unpityable) veidict from the
jury. They brought a verdict without ex
tenuating circumstances, and Nachm was
promptly sentenced to be guillotined. On
heanng the veidict he tainted, and had to be
carried away by the gendarmes.
