The bells of the land rang with joy
and tle journals teemred with gladness
when the Pacific Railroad was comple
ted. It was hailed as a great enter
prise, not merely because two parallel
iron bars extended from Atlantic to Pa.
cifc. but because it was supposed to
guarantee that which is desirable: cer
tainty, celerity. and economy in the
transit of freights and passengers from
one verge of the continent to the other.
In the first two requisites it has given
satisfaction ; in the latter, althoagh an
improvement on stage eoaclhes and bull

freight charges are fifteen cents per

The Executive Order of Preaiden
Grant to the Indian Commission is as
exceptiaoable: Of the formation and
purposes of the Commission, we eannot
say as muobbelieving the objects aimed
at impracticable or unnereesary, and the
members eonmeituting it not qualifed
for the task. Upon their characters as
exemplary Christians, there may be no
spot or blemish, but Orthodox views
and social poe/tion without other more
available virtues, do not go for much In
a Sioux camp. The rsservation bud
nes ean never be a succmes until the
tribes are segregated and reduced to a
mere buadful of deerepit and diseased
creatures each. and then it will hasten
their extinetio and render the mine
tratioms of the clergy a decent necessity.
Perhaps this is the real ultimate object
of the system, garbed under an ostensa.
ble one fles repugnant to the senses. If
the otbee is to scure honesty in the
treaty am dealings with Indians, this
Commission is illy chosen. It is a sub
ordination and maerioe of etileney 1I
deterence to the morbidly sentimental
pressure of a class of people who are as
Ignorant of the Indians as those they
send to manage them, and they know
as little of the business they are coming
on as a Digger Indian does of the cor.
ventionalities of Fifth Avenue society.
In a few years they may learn, but In
less than a few years the veterans of
three score who are coming, will have
probably been laid with their fathers,
or be scalped and laid out to bleach on
the plains. Therefore In the practLiable
purposes an error has been committed in
the formation of the Commission. There
are probably ten honest men in the west
who might have accomplished good in
such a Commission. But even this Is
useless exlpendture, even if the old fo
gys do not muddle things by bad recom
mendations to the I)epartment. They
will keep far enough away from the
scene of an Indian war to get the wrong
account of everything that transpires
for they have a mission of peace and do
not desire the offensive odor of blood.
In time of peaee, the army officers as..
-signJ as agents that they' will vsdt will
be just as honest without as with their
inspections, and we do not feel prepared
to say that if we occupied the position
of a civilian or military agect, and say
such fossils come Urls. Heeping
around, there would be any unnecessary
exertions to remove the wool from their
eyes, or provide them with tea and toast
in return for Sunday School tracts. And
we expect this is human nature. Posal
bly they may do no great harm except
expend two and a half millions useless
ly. They get no salary but have ex
penses paid, and philanthropists have a
reckless way of running up bills. But

THE WA ILING OP THE JEWS IN
Quite a number of our readers will re
member the sallusion to the following
described custom in Mr. Osborne's IA
brary Lecture last winter, and the fine
photograph of the place exhibited. To
us it seems a custom fuller of sad inter
est than any other on record-a people
banished from its holy places for centu
ries, still fingering by the cold walle
that enclose them, warming them with
their kisses, and baptising them with
their tears. And Time and generations
go down to the Past. to the ends of the
earth are that people scattered, and
though distinguished for acquisitiven
ness and parsimony, yet thrice a King's
ransom is given freely that by the outer
wall they may lament their long lost
heritage and invoke the favor of an of
fended Uod :
"The Jews in Jerusalem have pur
chased the right of the Turkish gov

their sncient Temple. and there lament

Men, women and children there as

wear a kind of long dressing gown

curls in front. The better class of
women are clothed in a white loose
dress and shawl.
As they a;"proach the place of weep%

but soon begin to swing their bodies
back and forth, wringing their hands,
while a priest or patriarch leads off in
reading selections from the Prophets in
most wailing tones.
At certain periods all voices join in
the cry, tears run down their faces, and
they seem to be moved by the most ag
onising sorrow. Old men and women
were there with whitened locks and
feeble steps, and they bowed and wept
in deepest grief. Little children, too,
were there. their eyes moistened and
voices trembling as they joined in the
No looker-on can doubt but there is
sincerity in this service. The Jews feel
that Jehovah iears their cries and
prayers, and according to prophecy will

bitter wailings, their lost glories; gath

of Israel, and henceforth permit them
to live and die in the Holy City, and be

This practice is said to have been con
tinued from the twelfth century. and
perbars from an earlier period. By the
Emperor Adrian the Jews were driven
from the city. During the reign of Con

only near enough to see it; but at length

AN IMPORTANT MTATMElENT.
Mr. beward has a call made ulpon
him in a letter elicited by the Alabama
discussion from Mr. I. W. Newman, an
Englishman but a strong friend of
America. It is a new point of some
moment, and certainly It untru'e, de
mands a denial from the Ex-Secrbtary
of State. He says that in an historical
retiew by Hon. John Jay, read before
the Paris anti-slavery Conference of
1867, there is a statement that in April.
1861, Mr. Seward. Secretary of State,
advised the American Ministers in Eu
rope '" that the Federal (iovernment
could not reduce the seceding States to
obedience by conquest," and the Presi.
dent, so far from rejecting willingly.
accepted that doctrine. Upon this pre
sentment, England promptly recognised
the belligerent rights of the Confederacy.
The published " Diplomatic Correspon.
dence" of 1861, certainly does not con
tain any such expreseion,. ut coming
from as respectable authority as it does,
the silence of Mr. Seward mder the
charge, cannot be else construed than as
an admission that it was really written
and suppressed from publication. It it
is true, it very injuriously effects the
cause of our Government in controversy.
