THE SCATTERED PEOPLE.
Lecture on the Children of Israel An
Eloquent Address by Hon Z. B
Vance, of North Carolina.
From the report of the Baliim nc Sun.
Honorable Z. B. Vance, ex Gov
ernor of-North Carolina, lectured
at the Masonic Temple last night,
under the anspiceB of the Bryant,
Stratton & Sadler College. U pon
being introdueed by Mr. Sadler,
Mr. Vance was enthusiastically
received. About eleven hundred
Dersons were Dresent. Amoner the
eentlemen, on the stage were the
following wbo came from Washing
ton expressly to be present at the
ecture; Dr. Geo. R. Dennis, Sen-
ator from Maryland: Gen. M. Y
Ransom and Col. v ra. Joiituon,
Senators from North Carolina; Hon.
Z. B. Vance and Hon. II. M.
Robbins. also of Xorth Carolina,
and Col. IJ. E. Peyton, of Virginia,
and Col. Woolford, of Maryland.
Mr. Vance started out by saying
that in giving a lecture under the
auspices of a business college, he
thonirht a fittin? subiect would be
o O J
the greatest commercial people in
the world. There is a river in the
ocean (tne dulf out-am) vf L c
expanse, whose waters ebb and now
all unaffected of the turbulent
billows and furious waves surround
ing it; and so there is a river among
mankind which reiuses to mingle
with surrounding waters, and whose
own characteristics can be distin
guished with the naked eye This
river is the Jewish rjeoDle.
Tho liijtnrv nf the Jrwa is the
history of our progress
the faithful of God, and their idea3
still continue to fill the world. Just
as the sun, which sets behind the
hills, reflects its glorious rays, the
thoughts of Israel, no more a nation,
We admire the ancient Greek
and Roman nations, but we reject
their God as an idolatry; we despise
the Jews, but reverence the religion
which they founded. For thousand
of years they have preserved the
same customs, the same forms, and
cherished the same ideas and insti
tutions. Their exile has made them
a commercial people, and although
persecuted by Popes, Emperors, and
nations they remain the same. Aye,
what a persecution ! They sub
mitted to cruelty in the name of
their own God withm hearing o.
the hymns their Psalmists had sung.
With all the persecution the Jewish
people and Church are still stand
ing though the stones ot tneir tem
ple have fallen. What is the line
of the pontins to tnat great ana
glorious line ot Isaac and tne rest r
The first pontiffs, and for that, , the
Saviour cf the world, were Jews.
Every Christian Church to day is
. i i 1 T 1
a graft upon the stock ot the Jewisn
church, and each Christian per
petuates the Jew. The lecturer
f . i i i i
here entered into a local ana ciear
review of facts, showing that the
Jewish nation were the hrst to re
cognize one God, one great govern
ing and directing power that was
unsubjective to Kings. The beauties
and riches of Palestine, and the
condition of the Jews in ancient
time, were each told of with glow
ing language and thoughtful ex
pression by the lecturer.
In speaking of the perfect gov
ernment of each and all the tribes
of Israel, he said they were allowed
to carry arms, elected their own
chiefs, and could not secede from
other tribes in confederation.1 of
their own whenever desirable. The
chiefs served without pay either
back or front. Laughter and ap
plause. They exercised the ina
lienability of property, and when
the day of jubilee came all property
reverted to the original owner.
Every fifty years God, the King,
assumed the soil and gave back to
the descendants of the first posses
sor the right ;of their inheritance.
This ' constant recurrence to first
rrininles is seen anions? ourselves.
for we have learced nothing of gov
ernment duriDg the past century.
The ancient tribe went in and out
of their Union whenever they pleas
ed, and they had their slaves.
Jerusa em, he said, sits in soli-
- A T..J 1 -11. 1
laij giauucm uti uuuciia inns, anu
tne stones ot its temple though
crumbled are reverenced, and just
as thought is more lasting than
granite will remain revered to the
end. rAprjiause.l The pyramids
may iauer anu iaii away, ana no
deep seated remembrance will re
main, bat Jerusalem shall always
stand a brighter and more glorious
monument than towering spire of
any church in Christendom, The
wanderings and sufferings of these
people during 1800 years is not to
be pursed, nor would he as a Chris
tian maa wish to it, for it staggers
human credulity to believe it all.
And whajdoes their religion con
vey in tha pai tio-inr r mat the
wrath of;u religious bigot is worse
than theruelest tortures of hell.
Mr. Vance here described the
peculiarities of the various classes
of Jews in different countries put
ting those in Europe and America
among the most intelligent and
J t C I 1
progressive. Their great longevity,
freedom from malarious diseases,
and peculiarities of form were also
spoken of and described. Mr.
Vance said that as a man who had
given the subject the greatest 6tudy
and utmost attention he would
assert that the Jews t day are the
solercst, most industrious, and mor
al people or, the globe. Applause.
He said he never knew yet of a
Jew being imprisoned for anything
above a misdemeanor. Applause.
They contribute much in charity to
the Gentile, but never ask them
! for charity in return. Applause.
The most they ever asked has been
! to be let alone. fApplausc.1 If
a Jew breaks down in business they
set him up again, and he never saw
a Jew that could not read, write
j and compute figures, especially the
figures. fLiauhter and applause.l
i a a j
! They do not seek political power,
I and though the greatest in the ex
i tent of their business transactions
j seldom own ships or property.
j They are always ready to pick up
j and start when the day arrives,
(jreat credit was extended the
Jews by the lecturer for their hav-
! ins been
the first to benefit the
introducing the bill of
Whenever, he said, the
; world by
Lnl wag taken from tbeir
throat they advanced. It was only
of late that a Jew was announced
to have taken a lease on the Per
sian nation, and no country to-day
ceuld war against the power of the
house founded bv Rothschild.
Christian men are taught by Jewish
rabbis, the world has listened with
delight to Jewish song, the voice
i - . . . .11
i ot Jewish orators is Heard m
Courts and Senate ; and if it be
trus, or half way true, that the per
secution of the nation has been un
just, what have we to answer for
True, in this enlightened country
all the restrictions have been re
moved from the Israelites, and are
only fastened on those whose fore
fathers founded the land and bled
in its freedom. Applause. But
there is still a statute in the book
that should be removed if Jews are
to be judged by their merits like
the children of the Civil Rights bill
laughter, who have always been
serfs. Applause. The lecturer
admitted that Jews had faults as
citizens, and believed there were
Jew swindlers, but not enough of
them to compare with Christian
swindlers. He had found that a
Jew could not make a living in
New England, for Jonathan with
! his knife and single could whittle
7saac out of his door steps before
he was aware of it. Laughter.
The lecturer closed with prophecis
ing a beautiful and glorious morn
ing for the Jewish nation.
Death of Strauss
The Raleigh Sentinel in notic
ing the death of Strauss the Ger
man Rationalist, has the follow
" Strauss was a very learned and
able man. and we cannot doubt, a
thoroughly conscientious and sin
cere opponent of the Christian re
lirion. His long life was devoted
to the destruction of the only hopo
of a lost soul, and his end, how
ever much it may have illustrated
the resources ot " masciuine
strength," was as sad as it is pos
sible to imagine. Deprived of every
consolation and hope that faith in
Christ brings to the soul ia the
hour of death, this great scholar
passes into the eternal world lean
ing upon nothing, but the piercing
reed of a vain and empty phuoso
phy. His life furnishes an awful
example of misdirected and per
verted abilities and vast and varied
learning, at his death, without any
hope of heaven, furnishes, a warn
ing more potential than voice of
prophet or thrcatenings of destruc
tion, iiislife was a stupendous
failure, his death inexpressibly
awful. In life he knew not God
and the Saviour; in death he is
- 1 cheated by a false philosophy, and
plunges into everlasting darkness,
without light, or peace. His life
was a mockery ! his end destruction.

had neither Bible nor common
prayer hook, but pulling out a pack
of cards he spread them before him.
He first looked at one card and
then ii'iorher. The t-'erireant cf
the company saw him, and said:
' Richard put ip the cards; this
is no place for them.'
'Never mind that,' said Itichard
When the services was over, the
constable took Richard a prisoner,
and brought him befjro the mayor.

' When I see the duce it reminds

' When I see the tray it reminds
me ot Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
' When I see the four it reminds
me of the four Evangelists that
preached Mathew, Mark, Luke
' When I ace the five, it reminds
me of the five wise virgins that
trimmed their lamps. There were
ten; but five were wise and five
were foolish, and were shut out.
'When I see the six it reminds
me that in six days the Lord made
heaven and earth.
' When I see the seven it reminds
me that on the seventh day God

' When I sec the eight it reminds
me of the eight righteous persons
that were saved when God destroyed

his three sons and their wives.

me of the queen of Sheba, who

She brought with her fifty boys and
fifty girls,all dressed in boy's appar

so King Solomon told by that.'

'I Will not,' said the mayor, 'if
you dj not term me to be the knave.'
1 The greatest knave I know of is
the constable that brought me here.'
' I do not ki O.v,' said the mayor,
'if he is the greatest knave, but 1
know he is the greatest fool.'
' When I count how many spots
there are in a pack of cards, I find
three hundred and sixty-five, as
many days as there are in a year.
' I find there are twelve picture
cards in a pack, representing the
number of months in a year, and on
counting the tricks I find thirteen
the number of weaks in a quarter.
' So, you see, a pack of cards
serve for a bible, almanac and
common prayer book.'
Some scientist has stated that
after the age of thirt3T-five a man
loses a ounce of brains per annum.
Wre suppose that no old man will
acquiesce in any such theory; but a
contemporary has made the state
ment the occasion of a shot at Mr.
Richardson, of the Federal Treasury
by saying that evidently he is a
very old man ! When we remem
ber that Mr. Richardson undertook
resumption by paying five dollars
in silver upon each check against
the Government the hit is not un
provoked. In all our knowledge of
financial expedients that was about
the smallest and most futile. In
that Richardson unquestionably
found the little end of the horn.

und While Louise was
playing with her
came into the depot
a j-tr uctcdiy
handsome gentleman, about sixty
years of age. He had something of
a military bearing, and his coun
tenance indicated intelligence and
refinement. The girl's appearance
immediately attracted his attention,
and as he, too, was waiting for a
train, he occupied the time in watch
ing her. As he walked leisurely to
and fro in the ladies' room, he came
near to where the girl was sitting
just as she opened tho locket and
revealed a well -Known face, that
was the exact counterpart of a pic
ture that he had at home in his

Josephine the deceased wife of
Napoleon Bonaparte. The gentle
man immediately asked the girl, in
good French, where she obtained
the picture. She replied, with
" My mother gave it to me."
Requesting the favor ot examm-
ing the locket, he took it in hand,
and, with the greatest astonishment,
read the following inscription :
"Josephine, to llovtense De
" My mother was a Miratel,"
said he, scanning the beautiful
Frence girl's features closely, "and,"'
he added, as a light seemed to il ish
in upon his confused ideas, "she
was a sister to Hortense De Miratel,
who, for some act of faithfulness to
the unhappy Josephine, received
this bcket and portrait as a reward.
My good girl, who are you, any
how." The child then related her story
how her father and brother had
been killed in battle, and that her
mother had recently died; that she
had committed her to the care of
the only relative that she believed
to be living, at Newark, Delaware.
The gentleman then being satisfi
ed that the girl was his own niece,
disclosed his own name, Victor
Provost. He had escaped from
prison when a young man, having
been incarcerated by the Bourbons
about the time of the sojourn cf
Louis Napoleon in America.
He fled to this country and settled
at Wilkesbarre, Pa., where he now
lives in affluence, being interested
in large coal and iron tracts in that
locality. It is haruly necessary to
state that the niece needed but little
persuasion to accompany her ut.cle
home, lhe romance ot her story
is increased by the fact that Mr.
Provost has a son, who is a very
promising young man, and that he
immediately became fascinated with

We have all heard of Botany
Bay, in Australia, as a place whith
er convicts were formerly sent, and
where there was doubtless much
swearing, but it is a new thing for
botanical names to be mistaken for
oaths. The story goes that a man
wrote to the editor of a horticultu
ral journal, asking what plants
would be suitable additions to dried
grasses for winter ornaments. The
editor replied :
"Acrocliuium Rosenm, A. album,
Gomyhrena globosa and G. globoso
When the man read this, he fairly
boiled over with rage, and imme
diately sent a note ordering his
paper to ho discontinued. Ho
averred that an editor who swore in
that way, just because he was asked
a simple question, should have no
support from him.
This rcmieds us of an English
traveler whose conscience would
not allow him to swear, but who
found that at the hotel in France,
where he was staying, the waiters
were so accustomed to hear Eng
lishmen use strong language, that
they considered him a milksop, and
neglected him accordingly. He
therefore hit upon this expedient to
securo a proper amount of attention.
Whenever he gave an order he roll
ed out in sonorous notes the words)
" Northumberland, Cumberland,
Durham." Tr.e effect was marvel
lous. He was henceforth waited
upon with the greatest alacrity and
The Suft'-rn Home says : The
loneliness of country life was not
felt in the days of slavery, when
the farmer, surrounded by his
d Jtnestics, was iikc a feudal lord in
his castle. But since 'fw3. the
dreariness of the farm has driven
thousands to the town. Unless
this tendency can be checked, the
country will be depopulated. A
well managed Grange can remedy
the evil by. supplying tho social
element. Ever;' Grange should
be a place for social gatherings of
farmers with their families at least
o-ico a month. Poplar Tent is
acting upon that plan and if it were
generally carried out, country life
would have i charm thrown around
it in th-j social and kindly relation',
