Mr. Charles Nordhoff. fie correspon

been reporting on the coirlltlon of the
Southern Slates, Is highly ofRnded be
cause tho Washington RfjmSUc calls him
a "Dutch Jew." Hu says lie is not a
German Jew, though he conlesscs to be
ing a German ; but to be called a Dutch
Jew, "dls Is de worstcst of all." Wc re
member a German who, some years ago
arrived in New Orleans at.d was Imme
diately attacked with yellow fever and
taken to a hospital. On his re
covery he went to board
at an American boarding-house,
In order to learn Eugliih. The land
lord was a Methodist cli?5-leadcr and
there was a great religious excitement
among his brethren at tint time One
night the German, after taking supper
with the family and his fellow-boarders,
left them all In good health and took a
walk. In an hour or two he returned.
As he approached tho house hu heard
strange and startling sound;, heart-rending
groans, sobs, moans, piercing cries
of anguish, and calls for mercy. He had
never seen a Methodist meeting. Weak
and nervous as he was from recent 111

Allison, the tory historian, who was
once examined for eight hours by Mr.
O'Connell before a committee of the
House of Commons, thus describes his
person and character:

handsome or comtnandinir, but it had
sotnetliliiK in it which irresistibly at
tracted the attention, strong and square
built, Ills flifitro conveyed the idea of
great personal strength; qick, but eva
sive, his eye gave the impression of Je
suitical cunning. He scarce ever looked
you in tho face. In manners ho was,
when tie cnose, extremely picasing: none
could exhibit, when lie desired it, more
courtesy, or was a more agreeable com
panion; aim none, nun oiuerwise in

of vulgar abuse. He belonged to the

no man does such things without great
