In view of tbe general observ
ance of Easter by tbe whole Christ
lan family, we reproduce tho fol
lowing data from Chambers's En
Easter, tlio festival of the resur
rection of Jesus Christ, derives
probably its Teutonic name from
the festival of the goddess Ostara,
(In Anglo-Saxon Eastre) which the
Saxons of old wero wont to cele
brate about the same season at
which the Christian festival of
Easter occurs. In the ancient
ohurch, the celebration of Easter
lasted eight days. After the Elev
enth ceutury, however, it was lim
ited to threp, and In later times,
generally to two days. It was form
erly the favorite time for perform
ing the rite of baptism. The courts
of justice were closed, and alms
dispensed to the poor aud needy,
who were even feasted lv the
churches—a custom which led to
much disorder. Slaves also re
ceived their freedom at thatseason;
and us the austerities ot Lent were
over, the people gave themselves
up to enjoyment; hence tho day
was called the " Sunday of Joy."
To tbo popular sports aud dunces
were added farcical exhibitions, in
which even the clergy joined iv
some places, reciting from the pul
pits stories and legends, with a
view to stir the hearers to laughter.
Against this Indecency, the reform
ers of the Sixteenth Century loudly
aud successfully raised their voices.
During the whole week before
Easter— that is, iv the interval be
tween Palm Sunday and tbe begin
ning of the Easter festival—daily
services were held. On Easter day,
tue people saluted each other with
tbe Easter kius, and tho exclama
tion Surrcxit (He has risen); to
which the reply was Vere aurrexit
(He is risen indeed). The chief
solemuity always consisted of the
celebrution of the Lord's Supper.
Many of the popular obscrvuuees
connected with Easter are clearly
of pugau origin. The goddess Os
tara or Eastre seems to have been
the personification of Hie morning
or east, and also of tile opening
year or spring. The Anglo-Saxon
name of April was Estermonatb,
and it is still known in Germany
as Estermonatb. The worship of
tb s being seems to have struck
deep root in Northern Germany,
and was brought into England by
the Saxons. It continued to he
celebrated in many parts in lhe
north of Germany down to Ibe be
ginning of the present century, by
tbe kindling of boiilires aud mi
nierous other rites. Like the May
observances of England, it was es
pecially v festival of joy. Willi
her usual policy, the church en
deavored to give a Christian sig
uillcauce to such of the rites as
could uot be rooted out; und in this
case the conversion was particu
larly easy. Joy at the rising of the
natural sun, and at the awakening
of nature from the death of winter,
became joy at tho rising of the Sun
of Righteousness—at the resurrec
tion of Christ from Hie grave. The
bonfires can be traced iv the great
"paschal tapers," sometimes
weighing 300 pounds, witli which
the churches were lighted ou East
er Eve. Iv the ancient church dis
bursements of St. Mary-at-Hlll, in
tbe city of London, there is even
an entry "For a quarter of coles for
the hallowed flic on Easter Eve,
The most characteristic Easter
rite and tho oue most widely dif
fused is tbe use of Pasch (i. c. East
er) eggs. They are usually stained
of various colors with dye-woods or
herbs, and people mutually nake
presents of them. Sometimes they
are kept as amulets, sometimes
eaten. Games are also played by
striking Ihem against one another.
In some moorland parts of Scot
land it used to be the custom for
young people to go out early ou
"Pasch Sunday" aud search for
wild fowls' eggs for breakfast, and
it is thought lucky to flud them.
There can belittle doubt that the
use of eggs at this season was orig
inally symbolical of the revivifica
tion of nature —tbe springing forth
of life in spring. Tho practice is
not routined to Christians; the
Jews used eggs in tlio feast of the
Passover, and we aro told that Hie
Persians, when they keep the fes
tival of the new solar year, in
March, mutually preseut each
other with colored eggs.
From the Christian point of view
this "Feast of Eggs" lias been usu
ally considered as emblematic of
the resurrection and of a future

The Tooth family do not hide

Tooth, who made such a disturb
ance in the English ritualistic

Hatcham, has a reverend brother,
Arthur, wbo tried unsuccessfully to

English or Americaus there, and
these few much too hard up to

thereupon betook himself to the

KEARNEYISM AND THE CON
001. Dmahua'a Views—He Will Dot bs Pat
ent at the Conference.
Encountering Col. Peter Dona
hue, the Chairman of the Demo
cratic State Central Committee,
yesterday, we availed ourselves of
the opportunity to ascertain his
views as to the approaching confer
ence at tho Palace Hotel, on the
24th Inst In response lv an in
quiry, Col. Donahue informed us
lhat ho would uot be present at the
conference. He is on a paseo for his
health, having been suffering se
verely from neuralgia. His wife,
also, is an invalid. On leaving Los
Angeles he will go to Paso Rubles
Springs, to test, for his wife and
himself, tho benefit to bo derived
from tbe famed sulphur waters of
To nu inquiry as to what be
thought of the proposed fusion of
tiie two parties, Col. Donahue im
plied that it tiie Republican party
thought itself master of the situa
tion no such overture would ever
have come from it. He himself had
given very little attention to poli
tics of late, uud he had found his
position as Chairman of the Demo
cratic State Central Committee by
no means a beil of roses when he
was actively engaged in the party
The conversation next turning to
Kearneyism, Col. Donahue said
that tho newspapers had couferred
on the agitator a great deal of undue
Importance. Kearneyism would
have amounted to nothing at all
had it not beeu for the constant
prominence given to its leader in
this way. Kearney was a very or
dinary man, with simply the" girt
of energy. Mucli of the strength of
the Democratic party in California
comes from the Irish Catholics. It
was v mistake to suppose that
Kearney influeuceJ a largo element
of this class. The Alta, in its dis
cussion of Archbishop Alemauy's
letter, had assumed that Kearney's
followers were made up largely of
Irish Catholics. This was not so
Tho Workingmeu's ticket would,
in Col. Donahue'soplniou, draw off
more votes from the Republican
than from the Democratic party.
Tbe Democrats who had affiliated
witli Kearney ism would, in large
measure, return to the Democracy.
All that was needed was lhat the
situation should be fully explained
to them by competent speakers.
From the foregoing, It will be
seen that, while Col. Douahuo did
not directly commit liimself on the
question of fusion, he is by no
means v purtizau of tliu movement

MONTGOMERY BLAIR'S BILL.
An Intorviow with Mr. Blair—Tho People
Dofrau led of their Bight).
[From the Detroit News]
Mr. Blair—l am aware that many
Democrats have private reasons
for desiring that tliu contest shall
not be opened. But I have no fears
that any Democrat will attempt to
defeat the passage uf tbo bill. They
dure not do it. There is a power
behind this measure that no Dem
ocrat will care to encounter or op
Correspondent—To what Jo you
Mr. Blair—The people, who have
been defrauded of their rights, uud
wbooaremore for the perpetuity
of republican eoyerumont than for
the ambitious schemes of rival
Presidential candidates, whoso
prospects for 1890 would be jeopar
dized by seatiug Mr. Tildeu iv the
chair to which everybody knows
andudmits lm was elected. lum
perfectly well aware that there are
many Democrats who would like
to let this matter rest where it is;
but when it comes to voting on
the bill they will not dare to man
ifest their opposition. I round
them in the Maryland Legisla
Correspondent — Did you meet
with much opposition there? I see
the vote in favor of your resolution
wus very large.
Mr. Blair—When I first intro
duced it I could get but six Demo
crats to consent to its introduction
or to promise to, support it. But
they knew that I hud the senti
ment of the great mass of the
Democratic party with mo, and
they did not care to oppose that.
It has been said here in Wat'iing
ton that I am a very magnetic
man aud that I carried my resolu
tion through merely because of my
great personal influence. The idea
is absurd—it's all bosh. The power
of my "magnetism" and personal
influence is. illustrated by tho vote
I got fur Senator in the hotly
which is said to be controlled by
Correspondent — How many did
Mr. Blair—Two; that is the ex
tent of my personal influence in
that body. My resolution was
passed because It was right, and be
cause the Democratic members of
the Legislature knew that the peo
ple demanded it at their bauds.
And that is the way members of
Congress will view it. Why, sir,
every man of common s»use knows
that it would he death to the Dem
ocratic party if its representatives
iv Congress should solemnly refuse
to avail themselves of the provis*

then say to us, "You dared not try

You have accused us of stealing

Mr. Blair—David Dudley Field
is tlio author of it, but it has re

of the greatest legal minds of the

calculate that it will take to put
