THE HYACINTHE SENSATION.
The Preacher-Honk in New York
Grand Charge of thc Reporters-What
they .Learned from Father Hyacinthe
-His Personal Appearance-What the
Catholic Clergy Say about Him-His
Future Movements, &c.
The sensation of the hour, in New York, is
the arrival of the French preacher-monk, Pere
Hyacinthe, and all the New York papers of
"Tuesday are filled with such details of his
movements, feelings and Intentions as the
reporters were able to glean on the previous
PERSONAL APPEARANCE OF THE HONK.
The New York Sun says:
The distinguished father's costume is that of a
clviUan--black hat, coat and pantaloons; and in
' variably in his hand he carries a missal. The hope
of many of seeing him in the long serge habit of a
Carmelite monk with naked feet shod with sandals,
was disappointed. Father Hyacinthe was fonnd
to be a short, thick man, of five feet five, with
short, crisp, black hair, retreating from his fore?
head. His face was florid with the hues of health,
and his teeth brilliantly white. His nose was
aquiline, but rather small in proportion to his
fully rounded visage, and his eye wore thc intro?
spective aspect frequent among those who have
experienced strong stirrings of the spirit. His age
appeared to be forty. He was in citizens' drcss,and
completely in black. The hair upon his tonsured
crown had grown again. He had been occupied
in reading a small Duoay Bible, with red
edges, which lay on the marble table berore
him. Evidently, the voyage had interfer?
ed with his 6elf-allotted tasks in that
respect, and the necessity of recovering lost time
was the chief cause of his desired seclusion. He
appeared somewhat impatient of interruption,
and spoke only in French. The customhouse offi?
cers spared the monk the ransacking of his lug?
gage. Many French priests came by the Pereire,
who all behaved with marked respect to the dis?
tinguished man. But during the voyage he was
reserved and almost taciturn. Father Hyacinthe
will soon have the pleasure of meeting his inti?
mate friend, the poet Longfellow. He brings let?
ters of introduction to General Dix, Henry Ward
Beecher and Father Hecker. He desires to re?
main in perfect retirement, and to study this
country, whose institutions he professes to ad?
THE OBJECT OF HIS VISIT-TBE ONSLAUGHT OF
THE KNIGHTS OF THE QUILL.
The pere came to this country, so he In?
formed a reporter, to obtain "freedom from
the everlasting turmoil and cavil of dorrmat ?cal
strife and public notoriety.''' From the conse?
quences of trje latter the reverend rather has
not escaped by his visit to the United States;
on the contrary his change ol locality was sim?
ply, to us? a vulgarism, "jumping from the
frying-pan into the fire." Scarce had he set
loot in "Nev? York before ssores of Bohemians
were^scectiing him in execrable French for
an Interview. Nay, even before he landed he
was encountered by a ?mall army of the
knights of the quill, who boarded the vessel hi
quarantine and interrupted the reverend
lather at the very time he was devoutly en?
gagea In reading from his breviary thc "office*'
set apart for the day. We can gather irom the
following an idea of his "freedom from public
notoriety" after he had reached his room In
Despite a peremptory' order to this effect, large
bodies of the nomadic literati were gathered in
knots in the large hall-way or thc hotel and
around the clerk's desk, using np hundreds of
the address slips in scribbling requests for an in?
terview in elaborately bad French. These they
would send up to the father's room by the por?
ters, a dozen of whom were kept going up and
down stairs the whole afternoon and late Into
the evening. The irrevocable decision of the un
fortunate object of so much attention not to
?rant an Interview to any one, did not seem to
effect his would-be visitors. They would not
leave, and, In fact, appeared determined, at one
period of the evening, to proceed en masse to
his room, and interview nira willy-nilly. But,
fortunately, the by-laws of the hotel forbade any
such summary manner of visiting a guest there?
in. This continual harass and solicitous torture
commenced the moment Father Hyacinthe put
his foot upon American soil, which he had sought
for blissful rest and retirement from all public
notice, and, pursuing him to hts hotel, invaded
the quiet sanctity of his private chamber.
E?en at 9 o'clock In the evening, while passing
by the hotel, we learned that the siege still con?
FATHER HYACINTHE'S VIEWS.
Thc Tribune correspondent succeeded in
gaining a protracted Interview with the distin?
guished stranger, and gives thc substance of
what he learned as follows :
The conversation was partly of a private and
personal character, and not suited for publica?
tion. Father Hyacinthe is, however, entirely
frank about his intentions and his present situa?
tion. He desires lt to be understood that he
still ls a Boinan Catholic. He has never been, he
says, an ultramontane; is not now and never will
be. But he denies that there is any reason for
identifying ultramontanism with the Catholic
Church. Ile Indulges the firm hope that the
Council will not, as is commonly anticipated, con?
solidate the ultramontane theories and consti?
tute them the creed of the church; but that, ou
the contrary, it will leave the door wide open for
those who, like himself, have been throughout
life the devoted champions of a more liberal con?
struction of the Catholic doctrines, and who in
particular have defended the entire harmony
between the Christian religion and the great
achievements of the civilization of the nine?
teenth century. Father Hyacinthe expressly
declares his full concurrence in the sentiments
of Father LaCordaire, who died, according to his
own words, "au impenitent Liberal," and of
Count Montalembert, who recently from his sick
bed (which he expects to be soon his dying boil.)
sent a stirring letter to thc "Liberal priests and
laymen of Germany," exhorting them to have
courage, as without thc courageous profession of
the liberal Catholics, the "church would soon be<
lost in the senseless triumph of a fanatical bigot
ism."' Father Hyacinthe expresses his r.dniira
tion of the wise and moderate words of thc
German bishops lately assembled at Fulda, which
he thinks canuot fail tu exert a must salutary In?
fluence. To the question what course of action he
would pursue if, as the common anticipation now
is, the majority of the bishops assembled In Rome
should expressly sanction thc ultra-Papal theo?
ries of the Roman See, aud leave no room in
the church for any who utterly repudiate those
theories, the father replied that this question
will not come up for consideration until the
resolutions of the Council shall be known. He
has no fixed programme yet as to his movements
In thc United States. He has come over to sec
and to study the count rv of which he has been
so long an ardent admirer. In his addresses, he
has often, in masterly eloquence, traced the great?
ness of this country to its open Bible and its
popular and free religion, and he wants to see
with his own eyes whether thc actual picture cor?
responds with his idea. A fur a few weeks or
months he expects to return to France; he maj?
or may not go to the (Ecumenical Council; be?
yond that, no programme has been laid out for
the future. But the strong basis of his religions
belief, on which he dwells with particular empha?
sis, ls the belief In the divinity of Christ, in the
inspiration of the Scriptures, and the excellence
of the Christian civilization of the nineteenth
Father Hyacinthe is now in the prime of his
manhood. He was born in 1827, at Orleans,
studied at Pau, where his father was rector of the
academy. Having, at thc age of eighteen, en?
tered the Seminary of Saint Sulpice, he was, after
I four years of theological studies, ordained priest,
and soon after called as Professor of Philosophy,
to the Seminary of Avignon. Later he became
Professor of Theology at Nantes. After that he
was for several years connected with tree Parish
of Saint Sulpice in Paris. Feeling a vocation to
the monastic life, he spent two years lu
the novitiate of the Carmelite Convent of
Lyons, then joined that order, and at once pro?
duced a sensation by his brilliant sermons. He
preached the Advent sermons at Bordeaux in 18?J,
the Lent sermons at Pcrlgeux in 18W, and in the
summer of Hie same year went to Paris, when, at
the Church of Madeleine, and later at Notre
Dame, he achieved a great and brilliant success.
Every successive year Increased this success; and
lils reputation as one of the greatest living pulpit
orators, not only of France but of thc whole
Christian world, was undisputed In any quarter.
No great journal of this country or of Europe has
failed to tell Its readers about the biiliiant oratorv
of Father Hyacinthe, and long before his bold
?r?test filled the world with amazement, Father
?yaclnthe's name was known in every part of
the Christian world.
Father Hyacinthe, according to his own state?
ments, has always been a Liberal, and opponent
of ultramontane theories. Now that his liberal?
ism has become so conspicuously known, the
French papers, with what truth we have not yet
learned, publish some interesting particulars
about his Liberal beginnings. We find it stated
that in the year 1862 Father Hyacinthe, ou the
invitation of the Society or St. Vincent de Paul,
for the first time ascended the pulpit of the
Church o? St. Nlzler, at Lyons, as substitute for
Father Hermann, who enjoyed considerable fame
as a preacher, but was then attacked byiuuess.
Father Hyacinthe confined himself, at first, en?
tirely within the limits of the instructions given
him by his superiors; the commencement of his
discourse was cold and unimpassioned, and failed
to excite any enthusiasm in his audience; sud?
denly, however, he followed his own inspiration,
and uttered an eloquent apostrophe on the want
of brotherly love in the present assembly and in
the church, and on the universal selfishness
which prevailed in its place. This latter portion
of his discourse caused no little surprise, and was
the subject of much comment. In a second ser?
mon he announced quite plainly a preference for
morality over dogma. "I have wandered over
the world," he said, "and have everywhere found
only germs of intelligence and atoms of un?
derstanding. I have entered the cloister and
have there only met with abortive saints." The
Archbishop of Lyons, Cardinal Ronald, heard
this sermon preached, and was highly offended
at it. In the first burst of his indignation he
sent for Father Hyacinthe and forbade him to
preach In any church of his diocese. The urgent
representations of the highest society In Lyons
Induced him to withdraw this prohibition.' He
again sent for Father Hyacinthe, and in a mild
and uncommonly forbearing manner put before
him the harm he would do to the church if he
went on with his violent attacks noon it. Father
Hyacinthe could not resist -this friendly address,
and promised to control himself in future. It was
not until lately that he found himself unable to
keep this promise any longer.
WHAT THE CATHOLIC CLERGT IX S'EW TORR
THINK OF HYACINTHE.
The New York Times reporter having had
interviews with several of the prominent Cath?
olic clergymen and educated laymen of the
city, in relation to Father Hyacinthe, says :
All of these expressed nearly the same opinions
upon the subject. It is by no means a conceded
fact among the Catholics, either clergymen or
laymen, that Father Hyacinthe na.-; left the Church
of Rome. He occupies, in their opinion, simply
this position: He ls at variance with the superior
general of his order-thc Barefooted Carmelites
and by leaving his convent without permission
from that authority, has brought himself Into dis?
repute. He is the author, they say, of no heresy,
and consequently cannot be classed in the same
category with Luther, or with thc others who have
risen up, from time to time, against the authority
and doctrines of the Church of Rome. Thc clergy
especially speak of Father Hyacinthe in terms of
kindness, and, without exception, have heaped no
objurgation upon him. lu fact, the clergy are loth
to express anv oplulon whatsoever with regard to
Bis actions. His case, they assert, will be attend?
ed to by the proper authorities at Rome, and if
his conduct merits it he will receive snch ecclesi?
astical censure as the church provides in such
cases. The Very Rev. Ur. Starrs, vicar-general,
and now the administrator of this arca-dlocese
in the absence of Archbishop McCloskey, frankly
avows that he has formed no opinion whatever in
relation to Father Hyacinthe's action, from the
fact that the particulars thereof have not as yet
come to the knowledge of any ecclesiastic In
America. The question having been asked of a
prominent clergyman whether, in case Father
Hyacinthe requested to be invested with cleri?
cal faculties in this arch-dlocese, they would
be given to him, replv was made that In
case Father Hyacinthe proved clearly that he
was still in onion with the Church of Rome, and
should clear up satisfactorily whatever difficulty
might exist bctweeu himself and the superior of
his order, there would t>e no objection to his re- ,
cetving facultlcs-f. e., permission to perform all
clerical fonctions. The clergy generally contend,
however, that the action of Pere Hyacinthe In
breaking with his superior-general has been both
immature and ill-advised, for this reason: That
If he had any desire to leave his convent and thc
order of which he was a member and become a
secular priest, permission would have been grant?
ed him bad he pursued the proper course to se?
cure lt. .ItIs very often the case, no uncommon
occurrence, In fact, to hear of clergymen belong?
ing to religious orders leaving their communities*
and entering thc secular priesthood. No objec?
tion to this course is raised, and no objection
would have been made to Father Hyacinthe's de?
sire to pursue a like course. As to the
matter of excommunication, the clergy are
very loth to speak, although this much
may be said: That according to the consti?
tutions of the Carmelite Order, and in fact, of all
orders of the c'urch, lt ls forbidden to any one
to leave his community without authorization,
and should he do so he thereby incurs an eccle?
siastical penalty-the greater excommunication
or tafee sentential. The question now arises
whether Pere Hyacinthe is under this ban of
excommunication. Thc superior-general of his
order gave him ten days from the 20th of
September last to return to his convent,
or to take such sters as would give him
full power to enter thc secular priesthood,
according to the routine of the church.
Whether Pew Hyacinthe has since then taken
the steps required, Is a matter regarding which,
as yet, no one can speak with confidence. Many
contend, however, that his presence herc proves
that he has not, and, If not, that he is thereby
Ipso facto excommunicated, lt ls thc general
Impression that the approaching (Ecumenical
Council will take no action whatever with regard
to Father Hyacinthe, his case being In the hands
of a proper ecclesiastical court. If the decree of
excommunication should be pronounced against
him, the fact will soon be made public. This
power of excommunication, it is claimed, has
been given by the Pope to the heads or all reli?
gious orders of priests, to be used at their discre?
tion in all cases where members of religious com?
munities leave the same without authority.
The New York World of Tuesday says:
Last evening Father Hyacinthe entertained the
Rev. John Crimmins, of Hunters' Point, and thc
Rev. Irameus Prime, I). D., editor or the New
York Observer. Thc interviews with these gentle?
men were very cordial, but they were, owing to
Father Hyacinthe's fatigued condition, necessa?
rily brief, lt ls understood that during his stay
in this city, Father Hyacinthe will be a guest, for
several ?lays, or Father Becker. Thc celebrated
religious revolutionist retired last evening at au
early hour, evidently well pleased with his first
day's experience in the American metropolis.
A New York telegram of Tuesday night
Pere Hyacinthe, who keeps as quiet as possible,
is to bc waited upon to-morrow by a deputation
of the clergy of Boston, tendering him a reception
there. He called at General Dix's house to-day.
but General Dix was ont of the oily, and subse?
quently on the French Consul. The clergy of
New York will take no action until arter the dep?
utation from Boston has ascertained his inten?
tion. Most of them are In favor of expressing
their sympathy for Hyacinthe on the ground that
he represents In himself the great principle or
Ecclesiastical liberty. They are to call attention
to his antecedents as a great Catholic priest, and
lus opposition to the Ocumenical Council, next
Sunday In their various churches, lt ls said that
Father Reeker, or Paulist lathers, is to have an
interview with Father Hyacinthe to-morrow, and
he will use his priestly ottlccs to have him restored
to his former status in the church.
TUE OCUMENICAL COUNCIL.
Dr. Manning on thc Syllabus.
Archbishop Manning, on October 3, deliver?
ed a discourse on the Pope's Syllabus at the
Pro-Cathedral in Kensington. He expressed
his belief that if the Pope had confined him?
self In the Syllabus simply to faith and morali?
ty in thc ordinary personal sense of the word,
very little would have been heard of lt; but
because his Holiness had pointed out and con?
demned all those errors in political philosophy
which lay at the root of morals, the world had
been in uproar. Dr. Manning thea went
through the several points of the Syllabus, ex?
plaining and defending each of them.
What was the meaning ol" modern civilization ?
The state or political society rounded upon di?
vorce, secular education, infinite divisions, and
contradictions in matters ol religion, and : lie ab?
solute renunciation or the supreme authority of
thc Christian Church. Could il, then, be matter
or wonder that when thc Roman Pontiff published
the Syllabus all those who were in love with mod?
em civilization should have risen in uproar
against Ur Or could it be wondered that when
thc world, with great courtesy sometimes, with
great superciliousness at another time, and great
menace always, invites the Roman Pontiff to rec
oncilc himself to Liberalism, progress and modern
civilization, he should say "No;"' 1 will not and I
cannot. Your progress means divorce; I maintain
Christian marriage. Your progress means secu?
lar education; 1 maintain that education is intrin?
sically and necessarily Christian. You maintain
that it is a good thing that men should think as
they like, talk as they like, preach as thev like,
and propagate what errors they please. I say that
it is sowing error broadcast over the world.
You say 1 have no authority over thc Chris?
tian world, that I am not the vicar ol the Good
Shepherd, that I am not the supreme interpreter
ol the Christian Faith. 1 am all these. You ask
me to abdicate, to renounce my supreme authori?
ty. You tell me 1 ought to submit to the civil
power, that I am the subject or the King or Italy,
and from him I am to receive instructions as to
the way I should exercise the civil power. I say
I am liberated Irom all civil subjection; that my
Lord made me the subject ot no one on earth,
King or otherwise; that lu His right I am
sovereign. I acknowledge no civil superior, I
am the subject or no princ?, and I claim more
than this-1 claim to be the supreme judge and
director or the consciences of men-or thepeasant
that tills the field and thc prince that sits on the
throne-or the household that lives in the shade
or privacy and the legislature that makes laws
for kingdoms-I am the sole last supreme judge
of what is right and wrong.

A NOTABLE SALE.
The Effect of Radical Rule upon the
Value of Real Ehrtate in South Caro?
The property belonging to thc estate of the
late ex-Governor James H. Hammond was
sold at public outcry in Augusta on Tuesday
last. The Chroniule reports:
The terms of the sale were one-half cash, one
fonrth (payable January 1st, 1670, and balance
January 1st, 1871. The auctioneer said he would
put up any tract advertised If solicited. Aside
r?marks were made by spectators-one asking
who ls judge in this district? another answering
Platt; and a third, "What constitutes a jury in
South Carolinaf" to which the answer was given,
"Eleven colored gentlemen and one white man."
It was not difficult to perceive, among those In at?
tendance, an evident distrust, and the conse?
quence was, that In the main thc bidding for some
of the most valuable lands adjacent to our city,
but lying In the State of South Carolina, was spirit?
less among the company. We noticed quites group
of New Yorkers and Pennsylvanians, among
whom were Messrs. Krown, Clarke, Orr, Oths and
McPherson. The places, "Cold Wade and Cow?
den," Silverton, Cedar Grove, Cathwood, Silver?
ton Marsh Tract, Ac, were successively put up,
as per list. As each place was announced, the
auctioneer stated thc product of ctr i and cotton
per acre for several years back, as well as the?
product for the current year. But with
these exceptions, thc places were all bought
in by thc executor. The plantations sold
were Cedar Grove, 1534 acres, to Major J.
B. Cumming, of Georgia, $19,000; Silver Wurr,
1900 acres, to Major Paul P. Hammond ror $17,000,
and "Marsh Tract," 2100 acres, to Geo. G. Chap?
man, Esq., of New York, for $0300. The places
sold were sold at the minimum reserve bid, as lt
was understood, of the executor. The executor,
at the conclusion ot the sale, announced that thc
places were, by consent or heirs, now in his
hands ror lease and private sale. This estate
comprises some or the finest lands on the Savan?
nah River. Such lanela on ihewest Instead of the
east bank of this river-In (?corgla instead of
South Carolina, some or which Included the ra?
mons lands reclaimed by the late Governor Ham?
mond, and which have yielded him ninety-one
bushels or corn and twenty-five hundred pounds
? of seed cotton to thc acre, unmanured-would
have been eagerly sought after and bought at
TUE COLUMBIA CANAL.
The Columbia Phoenix publishes thc follow?
ing article in regard to Senator Spraguc's fail?
ure to come up to time in thc matter of thc
Columbia Canal :
As we are not in the confidence of the "powers
that be." we are unable to state the case accu?
rately in regard to Mr. Sprague and the colum?
bia Canal. But this we do kuow, that Mr. Sprague
or his agents have railed to begin work on the im?
provement or the canal water power, as agreed.
By the 1st October, 1889, lt was suJd that his agents
would "break dirt," but this has not been done.
The silence on the canal is unbroken by thc
Irish voices that we were to hear and by the
shovels, picks and spades that Irish hands
were to wield. Why Mr. Sprague has thus
Tailed to "come to time," no explanation, thus
rar, has been vouchsafed by the commissioners,
who now are Governor Scott and Charles Wilder,

member of the board, having died. An explana?

a matter in which all thc citizens are Interested,
but ror thc still stronger reason that ir Mr.

North who have thc means and thc inclination so
to do. When the contract was awarded, by
Messrs. Scott, Lewis and Wililer, to Mr. Sprague's
agent, lt was understood that Colonels Gibbes,
Childs and Palmer, on thc part or some party
or parties in Philadelphia, made au equal?
ly and perhaps more advantageous offer
than the one that the commissioners ac?
cepted. If, now, this be correct, ami we
believe it to be correct, lt is obligatory upon the
commissioners to act promptly, ir Mr. Sprague's
agent has railed to come up to tho terms or the.
contract, let other Northern or Southern, or East?
ern or Western capitalists have a showing. Thc
people or Colombia, or course, care not a straw
who docs the work. They want lt done promptly
and well: but lt matters not to them who under?
takes lt, provided he has thc means, the energy,
the sense and the will. Let the commissioners
Inrorm thc public what tho state ortho case is.
it is duo to the publie that the Information be
given. If Mr. Sprague's agent has been unavoid?
ably or excusably delayed, and Intends vet to
prosecute his work, we shall have no criticism to
make, ir ho has abandoned the work, we say
thal the field should bo opened to the country.

deodorizer, and the result of the new process is
reported to be perfectly effective. Among other
illustrations, it Is slated that at the moat pre?

earth as a deodorizing agent.
-Panification is the name now applied to
a process of bread making recently discovered
and patented in France. This method dis?
penses with the grinding of the wheat, and, lt
is asserted, will produce one hundred and tilly
pounds of bread from one hundred pounds of
grain ; while by thc old plan of using flour,
only one hundred and twelve pounds of broad
aro produced from tho one hundred pounds of
wheat. The new kind of bread is said also to
be of bettor quality than the old, as the gluten
ls not decomposed and lost by the heat of
grinding. The new mode of fermentation, lt
is also assorted, contributes greatly to the
whiteness of the bread.
-The principle of co-operation is recognized
both In England and the .'. lited States; but
has made no such progress in those countries
as recent statistics show in Germany. In ISM
co-operative societies for procuring ordinary
articles of food numbered 199; iu 18C7, 31?; and
in 18C8, 553. There arc now in Germany 1558
workingmen'* bank and loan associations; and
the whole number of co-operative societies ex?
isting lhere is estimated at about 2GOO, consist?
ing of about 1.000,000 members. In 18G8 their
business transactions amounted to 220.000.000
Miniers, and this they had managed ou a capi?

years increased in Paris in a manlier astound?

every day. a greater number of persons be?
longing to the higher classes have "gone into

into religion means, among women becoming

A Nobby Black Wedding.
For the especial delectation of the handful
of scalawags in our State, wc copy from For?
ney's Chronicle the following notice of a re?
cent "fashionable" negro wedding in Washing?
ton, merely noting the interesting circum?
stance that the groomsmen and bridesmaids,
(and the whole audience for that matter.) were
made up of "whites and blacks," in equal pro?
portions. Thc Chronicle says:
Ono of the most select audience* ever assem?
bled in this city among the colored people met
at the Fifteenth street Presbyterian Church on
Tuesday evening, the 12th Instant, to witness
the nuptials of Thomas S. Boston, Esq., assis?
tant cashier of the National Savings Bank, and
J. Miss Anne M. Wilson, only daughter of Wm.
Wilson, Esq., cashier of that institution in this
city. The church was crowded to its utmost
capacity, with both white and colored persons.
The parents of thc bride entered the church
precisely at half-past 8 o'clock, preceded by
the Rev. C. H. Thompson, of Newark. New
Jersey, the officia.ing clergyman. The bride
was richly attired in white satin trimmed with
blonde and lace. The bridesmaids, Miss Lucy
Barber, sister of Mr. R. H. Booker, and
Miss Laura Fisher, daughter of Mr. D.
Fisher, were dressed in white rarletan. i
trimmed. Tho groom was neatly attired in a
i ashi< m able suit of black. The groomsmen
were Dr. C. B. Purvis, Professor of Howard
University, and Mr. Robert Burton, of Wash?
ington, immediately after the conclusion of
the ceremony at the church, the bridal party
proceeded to the house of the bride's father,
on L street, the doors of which were thrown
open, and was soon filled with a gay throng of
Invited guests. Among the notabas present
were Major Genend O. O. Howard, ex-Presi?
dent Roberts, of Liberia, and lady; John M.
I hingston, Esq., Law Professor of the Howard
University; Professor Bascom and lady; Pro?
fessor Baflx,>' and lady; Dr. A. S. Augusta and
lady, of thc Howard University; Colonel D. L.
Eaton, of the National Savings Bank; H. E.
Rockwell and lady, and Messrs. Devereux and
Finney, well-known government officials. The
bridal party left on the morning train for the
A MAGNIFICENT HOUSE OK WORSHIP.-The
New York Herald contains a very full de?
scription of the new Jewish house of worship,
built corner Fifth Avenue and Forty-third
street. New York, known as "Temple Eman?
uel.'' It blends in unconscious harmony six
different orders of architecture-Saracenic.
Byzantine, Moresque, Arabesque, Gothic and
Norman. The Interior decorations are finer
and more costly than of any Christian church
in thc land. Thc Herald closes Its article with
thc following :
In ten pews from the pulpit sit every Sab?
bath ten millionaires, and from that point back
an aggregate of millions more is represented.
Did there ever sit together, since the days that
the fair and regal niler of Sheba was escorted
by the gorgeous retinue of the court of Solo?
mon to thc temple of that monarch's ambition,
such a galaxy of wordly wealth, and lt might
be ventured, such a galaxy of beauty and re?
finement ? Thc roof of the temple is flat and
cut into squares by flic transverse arch?
es. A good deal of elaborate polychrome
painting fills in the spaces. The best
time to observe the many beauties in
this field of decoration is at night, with
the aid furnished from the full radiance of
the many blazing candelabra. The figures are
brought out In happier relief and show with a
lustre denied them by daylight. Altogether
thc temple ol Emanuel is a feature in itself,
and has no parallel. Its exterior ls an experi?
ment in architecture oftentimes before at?
tempted, but only in this instance realized as
a success. Its interior decoration, without be
inor ?iu?i.? ?a oreaL-A nnytdlv, lias so manv
points of originality thnt it fuirfydl vides the
palra of interest wfth the architectural design.
It may bc added, in conclusion, that tho first
pew sold realized the enormous sum of ?9500.
THE HARVEST IN EUROPE.-By mail from
Europe we have the following resume of the
harvest prospects prevailing at the great food
supply centres, on the first of October, as re?
ported in Pari.-:
The accounts of the harvest in Germany are
very unequal, varying in different districts
from ?rooil to far below the average yield. On
the whole the grain harvest of middle Germany
was below the average; that of the Southern
Slates was far belter. From Austria we hear
that the yield of corn ls considerably smaller
than in the last two years; tho same is true of
Rouraania. Tin; Russian harvest ls stated to
have been good, and thc crops have nowhere
failed so completely as in some places last year.
The fodder ls everywhere poor, with the ex?
ception of a few mountainous districts. There
lifts been very little clover, and both thc hay
ami surrogate have been much injured by the
unfavorable weather. On the oilier hand,
there has been a good deal of straw. Both
potatoes ami heels have suffered from the heat
and drought of July and the rain of August.
The disease luis also appeared with more or
less virulence in some parto. The hopes en?
tertained for the p?talo harvest are not, there?
fore, high; but lt ls said thal the beet is Im?
proving. The hops are said to be in a very
poor condition, pan ly on account of thc
weather and partly from thc insects and thc
disease, which have appeared i'i .nanygardens.
Scarcely n quarter ol'the usual yield is expect?
ed. But little fruit lum been gathered, and
even what was is poor in qualify. Tills is par?
ticularly the ca<e with the apples and plums.
Nor will 1809 bc numbered among tho select
vintages, os thc quantity of grapes is small
and their quality inferior!

title may bc fairly given to a restorative which
has taken precedence of all other touie and al?
terative preparations for a period of nearly twen?
ty years. During that long interval HOSTET
TER'S STOMACH BITTERS may be truly said to
have enjoyed unrivalled popularity. Many prep?
arations have been got up to compete with it,
but they have all fallen Into its wake or sunk
into oblivion for lack of patronage. From the
first, this now world-renownod Vegetable Tonic
has been both medically and financially success?
ful. Every year has added to the number of its
friends, and thc demand for it, based solely upon
thc experimental proofs of its excellence as a pre?
ventive and curative, seems to have no assign?
able limit. The medical profession sanction and
approve its usc, ami lt is now at the head of the
class of medicines to which lt belongs, thc ad?
mitted, undisputed soveaaagn tonic of thc age.
Thc statistics of the United states Revenue De?
partment will verify the statement that it stands
alone and nnapproached in the magnitude of its
sales as compared with those of any other pro?
prietary remedy advertised on this side of the At?
The explanation of this fact may be comprised
in a few words. HOSTKTTER'S STOMACH BIT?
TERS ls at once the purest, the safest ami the
most potent of all vegetable tonics, and the best
antidote to every variety of malarious disease.
Hence it ls especially adapted to the present sea?
son of chilling dews ind unwholesome vapors.
