THE HOLT PLACKS.-Rabbi Sneersohn
("Phobus, -what a name!") has made an ap?
peal to Grant for protection of tho civil and
political rights of the Israelites in Palestine,
and that they may be permitted to take ref ugo
under tho stars and stripes from tho violent
and arbitrary rule of tho Moslem. Our
bunting is getting rather expansive already,
and we aro afraid that the supply will not
hold out. Had not John Logan better
establish a post of the Grand Army of the
Republic within the area embraced by the
Holy Sepulchre? Grant will now havo a
grand opportunity to atone for the cruelty
of his famous order against the despised
race; and who knows bnt that he may be an
instrument in tho hands of Providence to
bring baok tho Jews to Palestine, restore
the pristine glories of Jerusalem, and make
ber what she once was, "the joy of the
?whole earth!" By all means, let the glo?
rious stars and stripes be unfurled from the
summit of Mount Moriah. Let us annex
Jerusalem, with Canada and Cuba, and
thus widen the area of freedom and spread
the pinions of our eagle so that all nations
and tongues may take refuge under her
wings and be safo under her feathers.

bis fare. "The h-1 you do," was tlio only
answer. The conduotor persisted. "Wall,
here's my pass," said the traveler, present?
ing a heavy revolver at tho official's head.
Another hugo fellow interposed at this
point, presenting a pistol to his fellow-pas?
senger's temple, with a menacing look.
"None of that, stranger; fair play, shell
ont." This settled the matter, and the fare
About nine weeks ago, a mad dog made
its appearance at Falmouth, and, beforo
being killed, bit a great many dogs, bogs,
and other animals. A Mr. Oldham had five
bogs and a horse bitten. Tho hogs nil went
mad in nine days and died. The horse was
worked every day, and nothing unusual was
observed in his condition until Sunday last,
when he exhibited symptoms of hydropho?
bia. He was kept closely confined in a
stable, and died during the day, after suffer?

Tho Baltimore and Potomao Railroad
