Aeeoiillng to announcement. Rabbi Ros
euspilz, Kulibt of the Jewish Temple, ol
Nashville, deliwred a lecture In the llaui
ner Hall, Thursday night ol last week, ou
"Jews, Judaism and the Saviour.'' The
night was cold aud threateniiig, but a re
spectable audience respectable in size and
cuaracter assembled to hear Uie learned
lecturer. '1 he Rubbl commenced by read
ing various portions 01 t lie Old Testament,
and commented ou each. The word "God,"
I raced back I o the old Saxon and Syriac,
means "Good," it was lue 'xid in man
thai dictated certain laws, which govern
the people. The laws of Moses had preserv
ed the Israelites for three thousand years
uulil now they were the greatest people iu
ihe earth. Although they only numbered
some Hi.uuO.iiio or 11,ihj,ii0O souls, among
them were some of the most fatuous people
in the world, In statesmanship, letters, art,
commerce, etc. God had fuXlilled all the
promises which Moses had made to the
people of Israel in the wilderness. A large
portion of the law wu-s sanitary, the olisei
vuueeof which made Israel a healthy uation.
The lecturer then discussed Ihe third sec
tion of his lecture, "the Savior." He gave
t lie name of mauy so-called Messiahs, who
had been crucified. He then said, it the au-
.o...,. were not tired, he would discuss "the
Infidel." The alienee manifested their
desire for the lecturer to proceeu. '"UUiU. lie
did. He said the term iutidel was misap
plied. In it true application, the term
meant a creature who deserved the condem
nation, detestation and loathing of all good
persons a creature thut should le an out
cast, froui all society in that sense the 111
lidel was one that lclleved in not lung good,
nothing pure, nothing true, uo.lnng noble.
But In the seuse Ihe term is genetallv used
t he lntidel is a grand character. But for
them there had been no progress iu the
world. Moses, when he left Kgypl with a
rable natiou at his heels, was an lulidel
aguinst the corrupt tyranny of Fgypt. But
lor his Infidelity to tiie corrupt but splendid
dynasty which educated him iu all tiie
learning ol the world, the Israelites would
have remained in bondage. But lor the
grand infidel, Luther, there would lie no
T'rotestantisin. But for tne noble Washing
ton's iutidelity to the tyranny of Greut
Britain, we would not now be enjoying the
blessings of t ue greatest nation iu t he world.
Our readers must not take this imperfect
sketch as the lect ure Itself. The lecture was
able and learned, and although he.ol course,
occupies ground directly tq)K)site to that
ol a majority of t je audience, he said noth
ing tutentlonally offensive. He is a strong,
able, learned man, and his foreign accent
is very attractive to an Knglish speaking
audience. The Rabbi seemed well pleased
with his audience, and expressed bis inten
tion 10 come again.

Who la Mayor?
All Depend upon tbe Board or Al-
uerinen, it no roruiuaicij are

Board Either In
Name or Char
acter. On last Friday afternoon, the four candi
dates for Mayor, Msj. Williamson, John
Latta, Mr. Dale and Mr. Watkins agreed to
leave their respective claims in the hands
of a party of friends, each candidate to
choose four gentlemen to represent iheir
claims; all of them agreeing that the one
chosen by this body, was to be the candidate
of the Democratic party, and should re
ceive the support of the others. This prom -
ised to give universal satisfaction, and no
. 1 . , , . I . .,., 1 1 ..... .1.... ...k..W.
doubt was entertained, but that whoever
was nominated would be triumphantly
elected. The negroes, Immediately after
the result was announced, assembled on the
street corners and on the square, and it was
very apparent that some miscniei was
biewing. Mr. Dale, who had received the
nomination gave general satisfaction, as
he was an old citizen, and was without a
slain either on his private or public ltfe,
nau oeeu Mayor 111 oilier uays, anu nau giv
en universal satisfaction. Although, the
friends of the other candidates were disap
pointed, that their friends were not success
ful; yet, like patriotic men, they abided the
result, and there was but little doubt but
that Mr. Dale would be elected over any
man the opposition might put forth. Ihe
morning of the election it was discovered
mat tickets had been primed me nigni. oe-
lore with Mr. Latta's name on them, and
the neeroea voted solidlv for him all
through the day; and some of Mr. Latta s
strong personal friends of the Democratic
party supported him; although, he repeated
ly saiu mat even 11 ne was eiecieu ne won 10
not serve. After the vote was counted out
it was found that Mr. Latta had been elected
by a majority of twenty-three. Mr. Latta
still avows that he will not accept the ottice;
and as Mr. John Brown's otlice expires lo-
niebt. our city will be without a regularly
elected Mayor. The Board will, however,
elect one ol their number until a new elec
tion cau be had. It isfoitunate that our
laws are plainer than those of the United
Slates. Mr. Latta, if he had been nominated
would have received the hearty support of
the Democrats, and there is no doubt but
that he will make a good Mayor, as he has
filled several oflices with credit to himself
and to the satisfaction to his constituents.

and were soon on their way to the recep

road being very rough, one of the gallants
upset his buggy, but luckily no damage was
done. He should be more careful the next
time, especially when he drives Miss Ida.
We got to Mrs. Jones' about 8 o'clock, p. m.,
where we found a magnificent supper,
which we all did justice to. After supper
we had some charming music by Mr. Davis
and Miss F. J., she being an exquisitely
tasteful performer on the guitar. About 11

agement on the part of the fish-breeder."
The tish commissioners of Pennsylvania,
referring to the same subject,' thus clearly
explain the processes of natural and artifi
cial propagation, aud the result of.each:
"It can be very readily understood how
much the artificial propagation of shad will
assist iu the restoration of our fisheries by a
brief explanation of this method of repro
duction. Shad, while having an immense
capacity ol reproduction, are exceedingly
careless as to manner. After making the as
cent of the stream aud selecting their spaw
ning ground, they remain in its vicinity un
til they become ripe, or iu the proper con
ditiou to deposit their spawn. The act of
deposition usually takes place in the night
time, when the female ascends to the sur
face of the water accompanied by the male,
and they swift in a peculiar jumping man
ner, and with a singular fluttering noise,
with their backs entirely out of water. With
each jump or spirt through, tbe water, the
female expresses her eggs by aslugular mus
cular contraction. The male follows with
his bead opposite the aual Ad of the female,
aud at the same instant that she expresses
her eggs, he exudes his milt. That portion
ot the spawn whicb, by the action of the
current of the water, iw brought in contact
with the milt of tbe male, becomes impreg
nated. By far the larger portion of the
spawn is carried away by the current, with
out ever becoming impregnated. This im
pregnated spawn is then left by the shad,
they exercising no farther care of it. The
spawn so left at once becomes a prey to all
aquatic aud amphibious creatures. It is es
timated that only two per cent, of the en
tire spawn deposited by the shad ever
"By the artificial process the shad are
caught in nets; they art at once taken by Uie
man having iu the charge the hatching,
who selects the ripe.or those ready to spawn,
and by a gentle pressure of the thumb and
fore-Auger down the belly of the flsh, ex
presses from them their spawn, which Is
received as it falls in a vessel prepared for
that purpose; here It is brought in contact
with Uie milt of the male, which has been
collected In the same way as the' spawn of
the female. Impregnation takes place with,
iu a few minutes. The spawn, from a soft,
spongy, pulpy substance, b?oomes hard ana
distended, feelingin tbe water to the hand
like dried peas. The spawn is then taken
to the hatching boxes, which are made for
the purpose 18 x 20 Inches, with the bottom
covered oy a flue wire sieving, which are
anchored in the river, so that the bottom ol
the box preseuts an angle to Uie advent, and
are there deposited; after a lime,, varying
froin three to ten days, depending upon
the temperature of the water, the spawn is
hatched, The little fish are then taken to
the deepest part of tbe river, and there the
tiox is overturned and the fry set free. At
this time the litUe flsh are about three
fourths of an inch long and almost trans
parent, and in deep water can take care ot
themselves their enemies, the minnows,
being confined to the sha!lov.s. hy ai tlfi

with ordinary care, ninety-eight df the
spawn of shad can be hatched."
Within the memory of persons now living,
shad and herring have ascended the Rap
pahannock and its tributary Rapldan above
the Orange and Alexandria railroad; up Uie
Mattaponi above Milford Station, and up
North and south Anna above the Richmond
and Fredericksburg railroad; up James Riv
er as High as Covington, and high up all its
principal tributaries, A letter lrom the late
Colonel T. J. Randolph, In reply to the in

the sweetest complimenis of his boy's moth

That sou, himself, a childless invalid, and

It is a very grave misfortune and peril to
the country that the Presidential election is
to be decided by the votesof the threedispu

in peremptory language, warned the Demo
crats that they must nut, in advance of the
decision, make the unpatriotic error of stir

people. There is no excuse for such lan

that it is not only a blunder, but a crime,
for Democratic organs and leaders to use, at
this time, .language, and indulge iu threats,
calculated to produce needless irritation
V hile, this is true we desire to-day to cal I

aud we call Uie attention of the Republican
leaders to the following facts, in relation to
their course and responsibilities in thai
State bearing on the election and the count,
auu suowing clearly to everybody that th
election machinery has been constituted
and is used there by the Republicans in a
suspiciously unfair and partisan manner
Gov. Chamberlain beine a candidate for re
election he so managed the appointment of
the ninety-six Commisioners of Election in
me counties that seventy were his open
partisans, many of them actually candi
dates lor election to the Legislature, whil
forty ure office-holders who hold their plaeu
by Chamberlain's appointment. Such gross
auu luueeeui parusansnip in offices which
are judicial will make It difficult for tin-
Republicans to rebut charges of fraud In the
iocai cuuut, or oi tampering witn tne vote
alter It Is counted, if such are made. Al
ready we hear of one case where a Republl
can commissioner, beimr chaived with tie
liveriug Ihe county returns and ballots to
lue iteiurning Hoard at uolumtla, has lulled
to deliver them and has kept them in his
possession at Columbia for several davs.
This man is notouly election commissioner,
but candidate for the Legislature; he is a
Republican mulatto, a hot partisan of
Chamberlain. Complaint of his conduct
has been made :y the Democrats, but has
received no attention fro n Chamberlain, or
the Returning Board. Is it not extremely
imprudent for the Republicans to tolerate
such a gross abuse of trust? How can they
answer tor it to the country hereafter?
But this is not all. The State Returning
Board, framed by Republican authrrity,
consists of five persons, all Republicans,
aud four of them candidates lor election,
and assuming therefore to sit in judgment
on their own cases, and without permitting
even a single member to the other side.
'This Returning Board is formed strictly ac
cording to law, but its character is so mon
strously unjust, the indecency of a final
court thus constituted Is so great that it
will be impossible for the Republican lead
ers, not in south Carolina alone, but all over
the counu-y to avoid the odium of coun
tenancing it if the conduct of the Board
should not entirley satisfy the public. Tho

Can the uaUonal Republican party afford
to countenance and to take advantage of
such methods as these, no matter how strict
ly they.may be accordingly in the Jet ter of
tbe law? Can it afford to be put before the
country as the aider and abbettorln such

entire satis taction of both parties? We be
lieve not. If its leaders hope for political

fer that Mr. Tilden shall be returned. Ills
almost impossible for them uuder the cir
cumstances, to ODtain a verdict favorable to
their candidate whicb shall not bear the
the fatal taint of fraud; and we solemnly
warn them that It is quite impossible in
such a case for them to to escape the indig
nation of the NorUi, which will cling to
them and inevitably sweep them out ol
political life. Under the circumstances the
Democrats have only to wait. They occupy
a position of advantage which only their
own folly can deprive them of. But the Re
publican position is painful in tbe liiuhest
degree. To satisfy the public mind that no
wrong is done, where so many circumstan
ces point to a deliberate intention of wrong,
is very difficult for them. To count their
candidates in, without so satisfying the
public mind and disarming suspicion to
court disgrace, and at the next election to
meet an irresistible burst of popular indig
nation. They may, by the methods which
they are using and which we have descri
bed above, legally return Mr. Hayes, as the
Journal of Commerce, & Democratic journal,
correctly says in a paragraph which we
quote elsewhere, there will be no legal
method of setting aside the result. The na
tiou must peat-elully accept sucii a legal re

the act, dig deep their own graves, and two
years hence they will be buried without

;Sfw Orleans special to New York Herald
Governor Curtln has just informed your
correspondent that among the official re
turns received hy the Returning Board ar.
those of Ave parishes In which no intimi
dation Is aliened or charged, in which bv
a mistake of the local Radical politicians,
only t he name ol the two electors at large
anu ine one ior tne aisirict appear upo.i
the ticket, thus leaving the balance ot tne
Republieau electors ruuuiug behind the
ticket some 1,SK) votes.
All these parishes are Republican hy
large majority, and it is known that other
similar errors exist which will increase th j
discrepancy to nearly 8,un0 votes. This
secures the State undoubtedly for Tilden,
uie neiuriiiug uoaru to tne country not
withstanding. rry lie did a' t Vote.
He sprang olfthe train, all covered with
the dust of travel, aud cleared the way, like
a gleam of Un.i l, through the crowd. Before
thetralu had fairly stonned he rushed into
the store he was drumming for, pitched his
saK-nei into tue coai-nox, ana gathered the
book-keeper by the left foreshoider.
"Is U true." he shouted. In a voice choked
with emotion, 'that Tilden only lacked oue
vote oi Having euougn to elect hnu7 '
"It is true," replied the book-keeper, heav
ing a ten-donar sigh: "it is only too true. "
"My God," groaned the miserable drum
mer, hurting his bead between his knees;
"aud I didn't vote. If I had known tli-
thing was hanginz on Just oue vote," said
he, raising and shaking his clenched flsi
above his bead, "I would have voted if I
had had to walk fifty miles to reaoh a ballot-box."

is au i..uiu man.
Could" an)'ihihK be niDre to the point
than this? And yet the parish referred to
is one of those on which Kellouc aud his
crowd has held up aa "bull-dosed" to the
lust degree- cau there be even the faint
est pretext for throwing out the vote o(
such parishes., with testimony of this kind
to the fore? No wonder the Commercial

Hjw th lernocats Can Gat the Vote of
United States Senator Whyte, of Mary
land, in an interview with a Sun reporter,
He is confident that Mr. Tilden has
carried Louisiana and Florida, and prob
ably South Carolina, and that in spite ol
'lie Returning Boards the votes for Mr.
Tilden in those States will be counted for
nim. The votes of such Electors will be
certified to the President of the Senate,
and copies will also be sent to Senators.
When the Senate and House sit togeth
er to count the votes in February oue
teller will be appointed by the Senate
and two by the ilouse, who will count
and declare the votes as they are band
ed to them by the Vice-President.
Should the Vice-President decline to
produce the certificates in favor of Mr.
Tilden, a Senator may produce copies ot
them and move that the votes be counted.
The Vice-President may also decline to
put this motion to the joint convention ol
the two Houses, in which case the tellers
may be asked to put the motion to a vote.
As two of the tellers will be Democrats
and one Republican, a majority of them
au decide as to the propriety of puttiug
the motion, and as the Democratic ma
jority in the House is large enough to
control the joint convention it is plain
that the votes ot all the States that are.
really cast for Mr. 1 ilden may thus be
counted. Should the Senate withdruw
and decline to count these votes tbe mat
ter will go to the House of Representa
ties lor decision, as in a qrsc of failure
to elect by the people. In that event of
course Mr. Tilden would be elected Presi
dent of the United States.
Of the thirteen original States nine

To the Editor of the New York Tribune:
Silt: I voted for Hayes, and shall con
sider the success of the Democratic pars
ly a misfortune. Rut it will be, beyond
comparison, a greater misfortune, to Lae
i President of the United States placed
in otlice by means of fraud or violence;
nd a general suspicion of fraud will be
iluiost as injurious to our institutions us
the reality. The fact, Mr. Tilden has re
ceived a popular majority of nearly 300,
000, fairly entitles him to thebeuelit of all
For these reasons it seems that our in
lluential jouruaU should now declare in
tiie plainest terms that if, atter a thor
ough investigation of ihe ciruumstatices
in South Carolina, Florida and Louisi
ana, there shall remain any doubt as to
the perfect fairness of tbe election iu thode
States, no honest Republicans will wish to
have their vuUa counted for Mr. Hayea.
Such declaration by respectable papers
which supported Uayes and Wheelei
would go tar to allay the deplorable ex--eileineut
that pervades tbe community,

As to ihe issue of the Presidential con-te-t,
ludge Black advances the novel idea
that it will result in the election of Tilden
and Wheeler in the followiag manner:
Ho believes Louisiana and Florida gave
a majority ior Tilden, but that the vote of
acli will be counted foi Hayes, and, as a
result, the votes of these States will be
thrown out by Congress, wheu it shall
ire 't to count the Klectoral vot. This
will throw the election of President into
the Uoasw aad Vice President into the
Senate. The former would und ubte Jlv
elect Tilden; the latter Wheeler. ' So
