His Letter to the Newport Congregation Writ
ten More Than a Hundred Years Ago.
To the Hebrew Congregation in Newport, Rhode
Gentlemen :—While I receive with much
satisfaction your address, replete with expres
sions of affection and esteem, I rejoice in the
opportunity of assuring you that I shall always
retain a gratfnl remembrance of the cordial
welcome I experienced in my visit to Newport,
from all classes of citizens. The reflection on
the days of difficulty and danger which are
past is rendered more sweet from a conscious
ness that they are succeeded by days of uncom
mon prosperity and security.
If we have wisdom to make the best use of

The citizens of the United States of America
have a right to applaud themselves for having
given to mankind examples of an enlarged and
iberal policy —a policy worthy of imitation.
All possess alike liberty of conscience and im
munities of citizenship. It is now no more
that toleration is spoken of as if it was by the
indulgence of one class of people that another
enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural
rights. For happily the government of the
United States, which gives to bigotry no san
ction, to persecution no assistance, requires
only that they who live under its protection
should demean themaelves as good citizens,
in giving it, on all occasions, their effectual
It would be so inconsistent with the frank

pleased with your favorable opinion of my ad
ministration and fervent wishes for my felicity.

WELL WORTH READING.
" Moeb LIGHT. "—-I rational treatise on BibU
Under this head, Rabbi L. Weiss, of Colum
bus, Ga., has* sent forth a little volume into the
world. Its pages contain answers to the most
striking and important questions of Judaism
and Christianity. Its purpose is, as the author
himself says, in hia introduction "to inform
the intelligent Christian of the position of Jews
in relation to Jesus of Nazareth, hia rejection,
his crucifixion, the conversion theory, hope in
the Messiah, belief in devil and hell, etc" The
answers are necessarily brief, aa within forty
three pages, the author touches upon not only
the subjects mentioned above, bnt gives a
chapter each to the questions, "What shall I
do to be saved," " Does God visit the sins of *
parents upon their children?" "Doesscrip
ture fortell Israel's condition aa it ia and ever
will be ? " wd " Which ia the true religion?"
The author shows a thorough and compre
hensive acquaintance with both the Old and
New Testaments, and brings the authors them
selves of the Christian gospels to disprove
many of the assertions made by tbeir followers.
The book is valuable for its many references
upon the all-interesting topics enumerated,
and for the numerous suggestions which can
not tail to rise in the mind of the earnest
reader. The style is terse, not a single weed
is wasted, yet lucid enough for any reader.
The Bloch Publishing and Printing Co.,
Cincinnati, publish the book and have put
upon it the nominal price of fifty cents.
RICHMOND MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE CO.
Mention of the organization ofthe "Rich
mond Mutual Fire Insurance Co." has been
made in some of the daily papers, and as much
interest has been manifested in it, we have
inquired into the leading features of this com
pany, so that we might inform our readers re
garding it, and find that, instead of taking
pledges of individual policy holders, that, if
necessary to pay losses, they would agree to
pay several times the amount of their pre
miums, the Company was formed by stock
holders, the amount of dividend on the stock
being limited by the charter and the insurers
pay the usual premium which is the limit of
their liability, but they participate in the
profits of the Company, and as Richmond has
always been a profitable field for fire insurance,
even before the recent increase of insurance
rates, it is probable that the policy-holders
will receive large dividends.
