M_8sns. EDITOH.B:-It is generally understood
that the Hebrew congregation worshipping in the
Hasel-street Synagogue have determined that it
is no longer a suitable placo for Divine Service,
on account of that street being now one of our
principal business thoroughfares, and their de
votions on Saturday being seriously interrupted
by the constant noise. Allow me to suggest that
the reason for its not being a suitable placo for
worship, is one for its being appropriate for a
post?nico, besides its being very central, a hand
aomo building, and convenient grounds. It seems
to us that our influential merchants could not do
a greater service to tho community at large than
to press the consideration of this subject on the
proper authorities. WBITEB.
ST. STEPHENS, June 26,1866.
Messrs. Editora : Observing that you aro pretty
watohful of the publie good-foarlessly calling
.vii-doers to account whenever thoy come under
jour editorial eye-I, as a plain farmer, who can
only understand our mother-tongue to mean
what it says, beg you to inform me whether or
not the Froedmon's Burean, through its officials,
has any right to deny that the froodm nn oan form
?ontracts as other freemen ? Has not Congress
passed a law punishing severely any man who
-hall attempt to make a difference between white
and black men in their politics- status as individ
uals ? And if any officer of the Government, in
his official oapaoity, makes such a distinction, is
he not liable to all the penalty of a violation of
the law above referred to ? When that officer be
longs to a Bureau expressly formed for the pro
tection of the fresdmen, and to see that their
rights as freecsen be not interfered with, is the
transgression not greatly enhanced? What
greater evidence is there of freedom than the
right, as dealing man with man, to make one's
own bargains? Ia-not overy free man bound, in
all civilized countries, by his own contraots?
Will you then, sir, explain, if you oan, why the
Freodmen's Bureau will continue to deny that tho
freodmon havo a right to mako their own con
tracts ? Why is it necessary for contraots, made
botwoon colored laborers and land-ownors, to bo
made as General SCOTT requires, and not ns the
.parties to the contract desire ? Why should Gen.
800TT bo called upon to approve or disapprovp
oontraoh? made in writing between freemen ? By
auch aotiQn, is he not daily denying that the
froedmon are freo, and so violating tho law of the
land? If this be so, will you toll us who ought to

ECCE HOMO-A Surroy of tho Life and Work of Jesus
Christ. For sale by 8. G. COURTENAY b Co.
When Bishop WATSON'- Apology for the Bible
appeared, a great many unlearned, pious pooplo
wero indignant at the idea that tho Bishop should
think tbo Biblo needed an apology. The book
boforo ue, if wo mistake not, ia such an apology,
not from an orthodox point of viow, howevor, as
wo nnderBtand orthodoxy. Nor is it rational
istic. On tho contrary, the groat object of the
present work is to stem the torrent of this dor
man heresy, whioh has received euch a mighty
impetus within the last few years by the writings
of COLENSO, RENAN, and others.
Wo can seo no iniddlo ground upon which to se
cure a Arm foothold. The sacred writers are
either to be regarded as inspired or not inspirod.
Their narratives must bo roceived as absolute
truth, or are subject to the same canons of criti
cism as HOBIEB, PLINY and HERODOTUS. If we
adopt tho former alternative, we stand upon or
thodox, evangelical ground ; if tho latter, we om
bark upon the broad, uncertain, tempestuous sea
of ratio-.ialiyrn. But standing-room for a third
party, we can see none. Yet claims this author
such an outside platform, as will be seen from
the following extract from his proface :
"Those who foel dissatisfied with the current
conceptions of Christ, if they oannot rest content
without a definite opinion, may find it neoessary to
do what, to persons not so dissatisfied,- it Booms
audacious and perilous to do. They may be
obliged to reconsider the whole subject from the
beginning, and placing themselves in imagination
at the time when he whom we call Christ bore no
such namo, but was simply, as St. Luko describes
him, a young man of promise, popular with those
who knew him, and appearing to enjoy the Divine
favor, to trace his biography from point to pplut,
and aooept those conclusions about him, hot
which church doctors or evon apostles have Boaled
wit1- their authority, but which the factB them
selves, critically weighed, appear to warrant.
"This is what the present writer undertook to
do for the satisfaction of his own mind, and be
cause, after reading a good many booka on
Christ, he felt still constrained to confess that
there was no historical character whose motivos,
objoots and feelings remained so incomprehensi
ble to him. Tho inquiry whioh provod servicea
blo to himself may chance to be useful to others."
This patronizing air pervades the entire work.
The author, whoever ho is, evidently designed to
do the Church a great service when he published
his book. ?And being heralded forth with consid
erable pretensions, it has attracted very marked
attention in the literary, theological, and oritical
circles of Grout Britain. The anonymous charac
ter of the book, doubtless, also is of service to
the publishers, who aro not slow to take advan
tage of the public curiosity. Rumora aro indus
triously circulated, attributing tho anthorabip to
various distinguished persons; among them to
Mr. GLADSTONE, and, mirab?e dictu to NAPOLEON
The DOOK is uiviuoQ into two parts : The first
treating of The Baptist, The Temptation, The
Kingdom of God, ."ibrist's Royalty, Christ's Cre
dentials, Christ's Winnowing Fan, Conditions of
Membership in Christ's Kingdom, Baptism, Re
flections on the Nature of Christ's Society. The
second part treats of Christ's Legislation.
Speaking of the arguments adduced, pro and
con, as regards the authenticity of the story of
Christ's Temptati n, the writer says :
"A retirement of Christ into the desert, and a
remarkable mental struggle at the beginning of
his career, are incidents extremely probable in
themselves; and the account of the temptation,
from whatever source derived, has a very striking
internal consistency, a certain inimitable proba
bility of improbability, if the expression may be
allowed. That popular inspiration which gives birth
to rnmors and then boiir voa them, is not gene
rally capable of greater sublime or well-sustainod
?ZBimberty-tige Silber firth meift nur fdjttdjte ?tm-lbe.
"The popular imagination is fertile and tena
cious, but not very powerful or profound. Christ
in the wilderness was a subject for it to work
upon successfully; we should expect strange
Btorios to be told of his adventures in such a
solitude, but we should also expect the stories to
be very childish. Now the story of Christ's temp
tation is as unique as Christ's character. It ia
such a temutation as Christ, and Chris* in those
peouliar circumstances, might be expected to ex
The chap tor is summed np with this paragraph:
"Snob, then, is the story of Christ's tempta
tion. It rests, indeed, on no very strong external
evidence, and thero may be exaggeration in its
details; buc in its substance, it can soaroely be
other than true; first, beoause it is so mnch
stranger than fiction, and next, beoause in its
strangeness it is so nicely adapted to the charac
ter of Christ as we already Know it, and still
more aB it will unfold itself to us in the ooaree of
As we have already indicated, considered from
an evangelical point of view, the book is fall of
objections. And however good its intentions, it
is oftloulated to do harm only in the hands of the
unlettered believer, by fomenting doubt and dis
trust where before faith reigned unquestioned.
Aooordingly the book has been very severely con
demned by our religions prints. Bat, on the
other hand, the author is treated with the most
cavalierly contempt by the advocates of progress
as represented by tho Westminster reviewers.
There must, therefore, be some merit in the au
thor, else why voluntarily aubjeot himself to the
censure of both the leading parties of the think
ing world ?
The argument Is essentially apologetio; ad
dressed to intelligent and candia thinkers, not at
present Christians on fall conviction, bat willing
to work their way in tho author's company toward
conviction. The book is not intended for those
who have alroady accepted the Gospel as having
the fullness of Divino authority.
The author's whole view of his subject is a lay
man's view,-practical and lawyer-like. It is an
application of work-day common sense to a sub
ject ordinarily reserved for teohnical or devotional
troatment. In this lies the Beorot both of tho
charm of the book and of its incompleteness. The
style is remarkable for clearness, vigor and sim
plicity; and the book has been read, and will be

WAR CLAIMS OF -EnSON8 IN THE SOUTHERN BTATES.
SENATE, Juno 25.-Mr. Poland called up tho bill

mako the Secretary of War and not the Quarter
master or Commissary-Gonoral tho accounting
officer in tho claims referred to.
Mr. Howard said the bill was very sweeping,
and would involve great outlay. He askod if the
Committeo on the Judioiary had inquirod bow
much money would be taken out of the Treasury
under this bill.
Mr. Poland said tho Committoe had not made
that inquiry. No matter what tho amount was,
he thought the Government ought to pay it. It
only contemplated the payment of loyal mon.
Mr. Howard hoped the Dill would not pass. Tho
seizure of property in the South was one of the
-necessities of war, and the law of nations com
pelled rebel communities, .atwell as rebels, to
pocket their losses. It was vain to expect that
the loyal people of the United States would bear
any part of such losses.
Mr. Trumbull said he would opposo, aa strong
ly as Mr. Howard, the payment of rebels, but he
would not oppose tho payment of loyal mon. and
only such were proposed to be paid by this bill.
Mr. Howard said ne was opppBod to paying any
body in the rebel States, loyal or disloyal. Mr.
Trumbull thought the loyal men in the South
ought to be paid even more promptly than the
loyal men in the North.
Mr. Howard said that by solemn acts of Con
gross the eleven States of the South had been de
