Tho Europe?? Conscription?.'.''
It is stated by the Loiklon Times,
that thre? day? after thc nc- J^ncu
army bill became a law, Marshal Niel
ordered the censers to be taken'of
those youths who had been uxempted
from military service in 1864, '65 and
'GG, but who will now be called upon j
to enter the national guard mobile.
It is adc*sd that, four days later,
. again the bill fixing the. contingent
for 1868 at 100,000 conscripta, was
laid before tho legislative body, creat?
ing a painful sensation among tho
peasantry and the poorer working
classes, who are not able to buy sub?
stitutes. The condition of alhiirs in
<3ermany ia said to be scarcely less
?deplorable. The laborious and pro?
ductivo classes of both countries are
being dragged from tho cultivation
of tho soil to rend and devour each
other in quarrels in which they have
no interest, nnd feel no interest,
whilst women are seen at work in tho
fields and highways, supplying their
places. We boast a great deal of the
civilization and of the progress of
popular ideas in the nineteenth cen?
tury, but such facts ns these afford a
poor illustration of it. Would we
feel much inclined to felicitate our?
selves upon the progress of the phy?
sical world from chaos to stability
and safety, if earthquakes, floods and
volcanic eruptions were of such fre?
quent occurrence, that it would re?
quire nearly a million of men in
?vory nation to provide safeguards
against the danger, notwithstanding
?which they should periodically break
forth, and, in every generation,
sweep off multitudes of tho human
race? Yet this is a precise analogy
of the condition of the political world
of Europe. A few rival sovereigns
stand with their swords at their sides
and subservient legislative chambers
at their feet, and at a word the great
masses of the working, industrious
people, in the flower of their youth,
aro seized npon and appropriated os
food for powder. If the people of
this country would savo themselves
and their children from those horrors
which follow the concentration of all
authority in a few hands, how should
they struggle to save the free institu?
tions of the United States from the
subversion with which they are now
THE RESUT/T OF THE STIUKE.-The
strike among the colored stevedores
has ceased to be a sensation, and in
fact it has virtually como to au end
by a compromise, but it has had one
beneficial and, wo hopo, permanent
result, which was not calculated upon
by tho insubordinate negroes. It
has brought white labor into compe?
tition with negro labor in this par?
ticular line of work, and the compe?
tition once begun, tho blackamoors
are likely to be pushed out of the
way. Tho gang of white men, some
twenty-livo in number, that we men?
tioned as at work on the ship Mis?
souri some days ago, still find em?
ployment in the same line, and do
their duty well. Auother gang is,
we learn, about to be formed by two
young men well acquainted in the
city, who aro mechanics, out of em?
ployment, and have been employed
recently in tho phosphate diggings
on tho Ashepoo. They say that they
have already seventy men enrolled,
to form a sort of co-operative labor
society, to make contracts for load?
ing vessels and share tho profits be
tweon them. This is tho right spirit,
and if the society is properly organ?
ized, and a man olected to act as boss
stevedore, who uudorstands the busi?
ness, they will, no doubt, get om
ployment and make money.

Reports from all parts of Italy,
leave no doubt that that country is
in great danger of the outbreak of
civil war. The expelled princes, and
in particular tho ex-King of Naples,
have of late been very active in pre?
paring insurrections in favor of their
restoration. The ex-King of Naples
has even rc-appoiuted his entire
cabinet. Cardinal Antonelli, ordi?
narily noted for his reserve, has been
heard to express his conviction that
Napoleon hus lost all sympathy with
Italian unity; that there will soon be
a war between Italy oid France, and
that this war will result in the re?
establishment of the expelled princes
and the nniou of the several Italian
States into nu Italian Confederation.

UNIVERSITY LECTUUES.-These lec?
tures; which were begun at the com?
mencement of the winter, havo lost
uoue of their interest. The loot ure
by Professor Rivers, on Thursday
evening hist, had great literary merit.
His theme was, "Tho conneotiou of
Epic Poems with the history of the
times iu which they were produced,
illustrated from Homer, Virgil, Tusso
and Milton." These great Evange?
lists of the human mind, ns they have
been styled, were severally presented
os types and reflections of the epochs
in which they lived, as phases of
humanity exhibiting the opinions
and conditiou of their times. A full
appreciation of their great epics,
therefore, is only to be reached by a
knowledge of their historical connec?
tions. It is but moderate praise to
say that Professor Rivers enforced
his views with nil that fullness of
learning, ripeness of thought and
finish of style, for which ho is distin?
JEWISH FEAST AND FESTIVAL. ?
Thursday last was the Jewish fast of
Esther. To-day tho festival of Purim
is celebrated. Of both a full and in?
teresting account is given iu the
Biblical Book of Esther. Esther
(Hadassa) was a Persian Queen, of
Jewish descent, and wife of King
Ahasuerus. Hor history, as well as
tho narrative of the delivery of the
Jews by her from a general massacre,
is given iu thc Bible. This massacre
v. is to havo taken place throughout
the whole Persian Empire, on the
13th of the month Adar. King
Ahosuerus, incited by his jealous and
viudictivo minister Haman, who was
incensed by tho independent spirit of
tho Jew Mordecai, resolved upon the
death of all the Jews in his domi?
nions, but was turned from his wick?
ed purposo by Esther, who, inspired
by Mordecai, saved her nation at the
risk of her own life. To commemorate
the most miraculous salvation of theil
peoplo and the destruction of theil
enemies, Mordecai and Esther intro?
duced the fast of tho 13th of Adar
the day of danger. It is solemnlj
onjoiued upon tho Jmy?, wherever
they may bo, to observo this fas!
yearly at this date. Power was gi von
tho Jews to defeud themselves against
their enemies, and seventy and five
thousand of tho latter wero destroy?
ed, among them Haman ami his ton
sons. Tho festival of Purim, which
commemorates tho delivery of the
Jews from tho wrath of Haman, is a
season of entertainment nnd joy, and
for sonding presents and giving alms
to tho poor.

Friendship, Love and Truth. This devo?

latter part of his life, but embraced tho
activity of early years and tho vigor and
maturity of manhood, extending oven to
the day of his last sickness. During his long
connection with the fraternity, he filled
every prominent position that conld bo
