To-morrow, the second day of March, It
Ash Wednesday. It I the first day of Lent
the begtnnlng of the fsst, or diss etnmmt,
ash-day, In ullnslon to tbe custom of sprink
ling the head with ashce. The name of tbe
day Is a memorial of ancient manners. To
roll oneself In the dust, to cover tho head
with asbes, was. In primitive times, a mark
of profound grief. A man who appeared
with bis body hair and dress covered wltb
dust announced b inch exterior his mourn
log affliction. Examples of this are frequent
In Scripture, being mentioned In Job, tbe
Kings, tbe vrophets, and also tho Gospels.
David, to express tbe bitterness of his grler,
tayi that he ate ashes like bread. In tbe
first centuries of Christianity, when public
penance was Imposed, ashes were cast upon
tbe beads of those who were condemned,
and they were obliged to stand without the
gate of tbechnreh, amid tho lameutatlons
of tho people within.
The ceremonies or Ash Wednesday In the
Catholic Church are a continuation of this
primitive usage. The old linen of the altar
and fragments ot consecrated, wood aro
burned, and the ashes carefully collected.
Before tbe celebration of tbe Mass the priest
la moarnlng robes recites penitential psalms
and solemnly blesses the sacred ashes. Then
all tbe faithful approach and prostrate them
selves, while the priest marks a sign of the
cross with the ashes upon the forehead of
each of them, repeatlnsr each time the words
of the anathema pronounced apou Adam for
as sini "iiememoer, man, thai tnou art
dust, and unto dnst shall thou return.' Tbe
people, having thus listened to the sentenoe
of death, and leaving upon their brows tbe
prophetic ashes, return to their places. It
is the overture to forty days of penitential
mournlnr. and follows ImmedL Jelr tha wild

To day Is known as Shrove Tuesday, de
riving Its name from the ancient practice of
the Catholic Church of absolving tbo peni

Bnt apart from the religious significance
attached to the Lenten ceremonies, the cus
tom tt this season of tbe year of changing
one's diet of fasting and abstaining from
free use of meals Is founded upon a phy
siological law. It Is true th&t abstinence

and Indeed with tbe fervent Christians of
other denominations. Is a matter of religions
discipline. The laws prescribed by Almighty
God for tbe government of tbo Jewish na
tion did not alona relate to the spirituality
Of tbclr fntnre life. Tbo details even of tbe
most domestic duties were prescribed and
the chosen people of Israel were commanded
to ooserve even ineieast 01 tnese mings. it
Is said the penitential season of Lent Is
founded on tbe example of the Saviour of
mankind who, previous to enterlog upon
Ills ministry, prepared tor the work by a
fast of forty dava aud nlehts. Bnt fastlne
at that season of the year was a custom of
tbe Jewish people, In faet a requirement of
tbeChnrcbt and we believe, without enter

Mr. Moore. Who offered this resolution!
The Chair Tbe Alderman from the First
ward, Mr. Stewart.
Mr. Moore. Free speech) free speech. It
doe not become tbe dignity or thb board to
adopt such a resolution. II believed in the
right of free speech, aod It hardly became a
member of the First ward to oiler such a
resolution. If It was legal to compliment
an j body, It surely was the cltlsens of any
and every ward.
Mr. Connolly said objections were sure to
be offered, It mattered not what Important
business wa on hand. Tbe resolution
savored cf the sympathy of conservative
Democrats, copperheads and even rebels.
Mr. Moore, wuat aocs toe gentleman
Mr. Connolly read from the RsrraucAw
of tbe S4th of February tbe resolution
adopted by th Fourth Ward Republican
Mr. "Moore. Let me ask, aa I did not
know lhat I was defending myself) let me
ask, does he refer to me. He cannot cslt
me a copperacaa. 1 ktb mi raj sons to tne
Union army, and was wllllnsr. If necessary.
to join th army myself. During the war
when the city wo threatened, some cltli ens,
now par excellence, were ready to throw tbe
rebel flag to the breeze. He knew it, aod
he wa ready to sustain the assertion But
let not the question of loyalty be tested by
the present aamimstrauon ot tais city gov
ernment. Let ns not by our votes ostracise
any man or set of msu for their religious
i.tHM be, a man ou irai, uu.tpuUcn,
and without reKid to political sentiments,
be would support tbem.
Mr. Emery thought tbo resolution was nn
Called for, aod should be withdrawn. He
bad not heard, nor did bo know of ahy dis
respect to tbe municipal authorities. He
had read accounts of First ward Republican
labs, that were not, according to the paper,
as orderly as they sbonld be. Why a reso
lution sbonld be Introduced by a member of
another ward, reflecting upon the conduct
of a nelffhborlnir ward, he could not under
stand. The Mayor waa a resident of the
Fourth ward, aod would take care of him
self. If Democrats or Republicans wished
to occupy this ball, why should personal
matters be brought Into the conflict.
Mr. Stewart said that he was here ouly to
Irotect tbe honor and dignity of this Board,
t was not proper to criticise or defame the
actions of tbe Board of Aldermen. If the
Board allowed Its chamber to be used It cer
tainly was not proper ror any political club
to meet here by their privilege, aud abuse
the members of tbls Board, it would not
have tbe tendency to exclnde railroad meet
ing. He withdrew the preamble.
Mr. Moore objected. It was not the priv
ilege of tbe gentleman to withdraw the pre
Tbe Chair decided the gentleman had a
right to withdraw the preamble.
Mr Moore appealed from tbo decision of
Mr. Emery said he thought It came with
very bad grace for any Alderman to object
to tne use 01 tne nan mr waru toceiiogs. it

be allowed equally to the Third, Fifth and
Fourth wards. No one was Injured by tbe
use referred to.
