Comn with mo to the eastern part of the city the old town where you will discover scarcely a sign of modern architecture. The streets arc narrow ; the houses lean towards each other from the opposite sides of the way, as if they were friends almut to full" into each other's arms. It is the Jews' quarter. Tho doorways arc crowded with women and children all hearing the unmistakable features which, the world over, characterize this historic people rejected of God, despised of men, persecuted as no other nation has ever been, scattered everywhere, yet retaining their nationality, endowed with a vitality which has no parallel in the human race. We turn down tho Jadengassc, the Jew' alley, from the chief thorough tare of the modern town. In this street, one hundred and twenty-four yean ago, lived a dealer in old clothes who hod a red shield for a sign, which in German reads Roth Schild. It was in 1743 that a child was born to this Israelite. ' The name given to the boy was Abselm Meyer, who also became a clothes dealer and a pawn broker, suc ceeding to the business of his father. By degrees he extended his business, lending money at high rates of interest during the wars of the last century, managing his afflun with such skill that Prince William the Landgrave, made him his banker. When Napo leon came across the Rhine, in 1806, this clothes dealer was directed to take care of the treasures of the Prince, amounting to twelve million dollars, lie wisiieg iSepllm JAJS. E. SAYERS, VOL. XL which he invested so judiciously that it brought large increase to the owner, and especially to the manager. The banker died in 1812, leaving an estate estimated at five million of dollars not a very large sum these days but he left an injunction upon his five sons, which was made binding by an oath given by his sons around his death bed, which lias had and still has a powerful influence upon the world. The sons bound themselves by an oath to follow their father's business together, holding his property in partnership, extending the business, that the world might know of but one house of the redahidd (Rothschild). The sons were true to their oath. Nathan went to Manchester, England, as early as 1797, but afterward moved to Iiondon. Ansel in remained at Frankfort. James went to Paris, Solomon to Vienna, and Charles to Naples, the five brothers thus occupy ing the great financial centres. Nathan, in Iiondon, amassed money with great rapidity, and the same may be said of the others, the wars of Napoleon being favorable t the business of the house. Nathan went to the Continent to wit ness the operations of Wellington in his last campaign against Napoleon, prepared to net with the utmost energy, let the result lie as it might. He wit nessed the battle of Waterloo, and, when assured of Napoleon's defeat, rode all night, with relays of horses, to Ostend ; went across the channel in a fishing smack for it was before the days of steam reached London in ad vance of all other messengers, and spred the rumor that Wellington nnd Uluehcr were defeated. 1 lie 23th of June in that memorable year wag a dismal day in London. The battle was fought on the 13th. Nathan Meyer, of tho House of Red .Shield, bv hard riding, readied London at mid night on the 19th. On the morning of the 20th the news was over town that the cause of the allies was lost, that Napoleon had swept all bef.iro him. England had been the leading spirit of the struggle against Napoleon. The treasury of Great Britain had sup plied funds to nearly all of the allied Powers. If their cause was lost what hope was there for the future? Ran kcrs flew from door to door in eager haste to sell their stocks, I'tindsol every description went down. Ansel in Meyer wrs besieged bv men who had funds fiir sale, but he was not in the market, ho too had stocks for sale. u imt wuuui tnevgivcY JSut mean while he had scores of agents purchas ing. Twenty-lour hours later Wel Imuton's messenger arrived in Lon- 1 . 1 j .1 I mi ion ; tne triun was Known, i lie na tion nave vent to its joy ; up went the funds, pouring, it is said, five million dollars into the colters of this one branch of the houc of the Hed (Shield. Though Frankfort is comparatively a small city though it has no imperi al court it is still a great money centre, solely because that here is the central house of the Rothschilds and other bankers. The house of the Red Shield is the greatest banking house in the world the mightiest of all time. Its pow er is felt the world over in the Tuil eries of Paris, in the Ministerial cham bers of Berlin, in the Imperial Palace at St. Petersburg, in 'the Vatican at Rome, in the Rank of England, in Wall street, State street, and by every New England fireside. The house of the Red Shield, by the exercise of its financial power, can make a differ ence in the yearly account of every man who rends these words of mine. Though Anselm Meyer has been half a century dead though several of his sons have gone down to the grave the house is the same. The grandchil dren have the spirit of the children. The children of the brothers have in termarried, nnd it is one family ani mated by a common purpose, that the world shall only know one red thivld. The house, at an early stage of the American war, took hold of the Unit ed States bonds. Germany had con fidence in America. England strove for our ruin, but the people of the Rhine believed in the star of Ameri can lilicrty. Fifty years of peace had been long enough to bridg wealth to this land, nnd with every steamer orders were sent across the Atlantic for investment of American securities. It is supposed that Germany holds at the present time about three hundred nnd fifty millions of United States bonds, and it is said thnt there have been no less than fifty million dollars profit to the bankers of Frankfort on American securities since 18G3. Tho great banking houses here make little show. The transactions of the Rothschilds amount to millions a day, and yet the operations are con ducted as quietly as tho business of a small counting house. You can pur chase any stock here. Passing along the street, I noticed bonds of the State of California of several American States bonds in Dutch, Russian, Turkish, Arabic, Spanish, Italian, French bonds of all hinds of States, cities, towns and companies. The rc- Grts of the Frankfort Exchange are kcd at by European bankers with as much interest as that of London or Paris. Erlnnger, the banker who negotiat ed the rebel cotton loan, and who fleec ed English sympathizers of the South out of fifteen million dollars, has a house here. He has just now taken hold of the new Tunisian loan, but his management of the rebel loan has brought discredit upon his house. The power of the Red Shield was FIRMNESS IN THE RIGHT felt by Prussia last summer. The rrussiun Government demanded on indemnity nf crrpflt amount, twentv- five million dollars, I believe, from the city of Frankfort. 1 he head of the house of the Red Shield informed Count Bismark that if tho attempt was made to enforce the levy ho would break every bank in Ik-din ; that he had the power to do it, and that he should exercise the power. 1'russia had won a victory at Konnigratz j she could swecn away all armed opposi tion, but liore, in the person of one man, she hail met an adversary who had the power to humble her, mid she declined the contest. A much lower sum was agreed upon, which was paid by the city. For fifteen centuries the Jews have lieen cursed by the Potie, and persecu ted by the Roman Church. There is no more revolting chapter of horrors in history ihan that of the treatment of the Jews at the hands of the Pontiffs. In all lands where the Roman religion is dominant, the children of Israel have lieen treated with barbaric rigor al lowed few privileges, denied all rights, looked upou as a people accursed of God, and set apart by divine ordina tion to lie trampled upon by the Church. In Rome, at the present day, the Jews are confined to the Ghetto; they are not allowed to set up a shop in any other part of the city without a permit ; tlicv can engage only in certain trades ; they are com pelled to pay enormous tuxes into the Papal treasury ; they are subject to a stringent code of laws established by the Pope for their especial benefit'; they are imprisoned and fined lor the most trivial offenses. They cannot own nny real estate in the city ; cannot build, tear down or remodel any dwelling or change their place of busi ness without Papal permission. They art! in abjwt slavery, with no rights whatever, and entitled to no privileges, ami receive none, except upon the gracious condescension of the Pope. In former times they were unmercifully whipped and compelled to listen once a week to the Chrixtian doctrine of the priests. Rut time is bringing changes. The Pope is in want of money and the house of the red shield has money to lend on good security. The house is always ready to accommodate Govern ments. Italy wants money, so she sells her fine system of railroads to the Rothschilds. The Pope wants money, so he sends his Nuncio to the wealthy house of the despised race, offers them security on the property of the Church, the Cotnpagna, and receives ten million dollars to maintain his army and Im perial State. That was in 180o. A year passes, and the Pontifical expen ditures arc five millions more than the income, and the deficit. is made up by the Rothschilds, who take a second security at a higher rate of interest. Another year is passed, and there is a thir l annual vacuum in the Papal tnas u ry of six millions, which will quite likely be filled by the same house. The firm can do it with as much ease as your readers can pay their yearly subscription to your weekly Journal. When will the Pope redeem his loan at the rate he is going? Never! Mani festly the day is not far distant when these representatives of a persecuted race will have all the available proper ty of the Church in their possession. Surely time works wonders. Boston Journal. What a Democratic Nueces .Henna. The Cincinnatti Gazette refers to the fact that the Democratic party is hob bling along tied to the eorpso of its record of cowardice and treachery, grasping at any and every means to keep itself from sinking out of sight and paints what a Democratic success means, thus : Democratic success, as interpreted by the doctrines of the party, means to undo everything that the national triumph over secession has done and to restore the status of the reliellion, with the South to dictate terms to the na tion. If it does not mean this, what do they mean by going before the jieo ple at nn election canvass with the doctrines that include all this, ami that have no meaning but this? If they do not mean this, will they disown one of the doctrines that comprehend it ? They have either to admit that Dem ocratic success means to restore the status of rebellion, or else to admit that the war of national defense was just nnd constitutional ; that secession is a crime; that slavery is legally abolished, and shall no more exist ; that the States Governments by levy ing war, lost their legal existence ; that the legal tender notes and the bonds issued for the public defenses are legal, and that this public faith must be sa credly kept ; and in admitting this now they confess an abominable, trai torous course all through the war of national preservation. There is something very sad in those memorable words of Aaron Burr. "If I had read Voltaire less the world would have been wide enough for me and Hamilton." Generals Thomas, Hancock and Meade, havedeclared themselves averse to taking Sheridan's place, because they know he is best Qualified for its duties. -' A woman of New York, who drank flfteeB bottles of soda.

(Original For the RercaticAM, HCMILIATIO A KFWr.DT FOB MORAL There are certain specific cures to which we always have recourse in at tacks of certain diseases. The most speedy curatives are, not unfrequently, the most simple. The very best anti dote for the more common forms of poison is generally within the reach of every well supplied house-wife. It is no mark of a skillful physician that a man carries with him a whole pouch of medicines for the cure of any one disease. It is only when he may be called upon to treat a varidy of dis eases that he provides himself with a variety of medicines. So with moral disease. The cure is generally sinfple, yet severe and sure, There are a large class of moral dis eases engendered, or at least stimulated, by wealth. Under its influence some mens' selfish natures are so stimulated that they, in a short time, assume pro portions entirely too large for their boots. To them work whew! It is only fit for the poor trash and certain ly honorable in none ! Arrogance, insolence, impatience and oppression are but symptoms of the disease. The remedy, in such cases, is generally brought about by the work' ings of the disease itself. The flound erings of the victim, in his paroxysms of insolence, become unbearable. The antidote is Humiliation. In the ad' vaneed stage of the disease nothing else seems to have the least effect. It is only when his wealth has taken to itself wings, when his flatterers have turned to scoffers, when his pride has changed to shame, that the scales fall from his eyes. When that is done, the cure is about affected. Bitter in deed is the dose of Humiliation, yet it proves effective when everything else has failed. The same is true of Church or Po litical Organizations of Communities of Nations. When their selfish big otry, their haughty insolence nnd their rushing oppression can no longer be endured, Huniiliatum is the effective remedy. The proud must shed their gaudy feather); tlie insolent become tamed ; the diciatorialness of tone be turned to the plaintiff notes of sup plication. Babylon the Greed must full. I We have seen a member of our own nation dwarfed ami withered by an attack of that fearful malady, which, it seems, Humiliation alone could check. History records few, if any, more striking examples of the feverish pilch to which a proud, domineering, levilish spirit will drive men than has been witnessed in the actions of the Southern States. The most able and experienced nurses could do but little in pafching up the imaginary wounds of the blinded patient. Nothing would appease the avarice of these Southern lenders in their greed for honor and power, but abject nnd servile submis sion to their domiueering will. Noth ing could cure the dangerous malady with which they were afflicted but a thorough Humiliation. These proud aristocrats, these scoffers at honorable toil, these contemners of free speech, these Southern nabobs who long boast ed that one Southerner was equal to five Northern men, who made merry at the clanking chains of four millions of bondmen have, nt lost, licen Humil iated. Terrible, and well nigh fatal Wiis the disease severe and simple has been the ciire.TFrom the assumed rank of dictators they have found a place in the procession of suppliants. The former slave deposits his ballot in the same box with the ex-master. In the "Last th" they have found what they so littfc expected, but what they so much needed Humiliation, May it prove a permanent cure for their ills and a warning to proud ar ristocrats everywhere.

The way thai an Earl calls a Duke a liar in the British House of Lords was illustrated ia a recent debate as follows: "I beg to call the attention of my noble friend, the noble Duke, to an observation whieh my noble friend the noble Duke is reported to have made, and which my noble friend the noble Dnke will find tpon acflection to be inconsistent witk strict veracity." Maw a i ran tiers ina rift-ata Indiana. A Denver-letter in the Cincinnati Gazzdt has a story of frontier life : My hist letter closed with the arrival of our party at Godfrey's ranche, on our westward journey. The ranche is about midway between Old Julesburg and the Platte and Denver City. As this is a noted place, and its proprietor a "character," I propose to dwell a while. "Old Godfrey," as hois called by travelers and himself when he is at his ranche, and "Old Wicked," when he is on his travels, is a man about sixty years of age, above the average in sta ture, well built and firmly knit, his shoulders slightly bent by time and hardships anil wounds received from tho Indians, who are his only neigh bors, and wlio never visit him to take tea or drinks socially, but always cull when they think their force strong enough to take his cattle, his goods, or the scalp of the old veteran, or of some or all of his family. His watchfulness has so far thwarted them and protected his household treasures ; but tney often run off his stock, nnd he as often suc ceeds in getting even with them. The ranche is built of adobe, the walls be ing about two feet thick ; the apart ments are the dining room, for travel ers, a kitchen, two or three lodging rooms, and a large room used for a sitting, wash-room and store the floor being rough boards. In this room arc also the arms and ammunition used in defending his home from the frequent attacks of his neighbors. "His family consists of his wife, a frail, patient-looking woman, a daugh ter about eighteen, and three sons. These form the corps reserve, while one or two hired men assist in guard ing against surprise and doing the work about the ranche. Outside of the house, and ten feet from it, are the fortifications, which completely sur round it. The walls of defence are built of sod taken from the surface of tho prairie, being about two feet thick at the bottom and one nt the top, the height being about five feet ; near the top loopholes nre frequent, affording range in all directions. Through this wall, opposite the front door, is nn opening about three feet wide, and bags of sand lying near to barricade the same if required. "The Indians, who have often by treachery and open attack tried to destroy this fort and murder its oc cupants, have as often been beaten, till they now have a wholesome fear ot the determined Godfrey, and his brave family. They hate him with a bitter hate, and declare they will yet have his hair, and Godfrey declares that they shall not. "The bluffs arc about six miles from Fort Godfrey, and distinctly visible. Behind those bluffs the Indians watch for chances. A week since Godfrey saw a fine antelope near his ranche, and taking Ins long rifle he started in pur suit. Jn the excitement of the chase he failed to notice the distance and Hearing the bluffs, a party of seven Cheyennes, who had bcenwatching as usual, 'went to him.' The old man started, but his horse was too slow, and the Indians were gaining upon him rapidly. Here his experience served him. Knowing that his long rifle would reach farther than the car bines with which his pursuers were armed, he suddenly stopped his horse, took deliberate aim over the back of the steed, and laid one of the savages low. lhis occasioned a delay with them, which Godfrey improved. But, two taking care of the dead Indian, four followed on, and in a short time Godfrey repeated the operation, killing one more. "This last delay saved him; but lieing cut off from his ranche, he found shelter in another ranche about ten miles from home. Here was a chance for the red skins. 'Old Wicked' awny and his family without his aid. It was a chance no to lie neglected, nnd soon about fifty attacked the fort, ex pecting to revel in the blood of the family of their bitter foe. 1 he fami ly had time to prepare for them, and received them handsomely, Mrs. God frey and the daughter loading, while the male members defended. The liattle raged for twenty-four hours, but the determined brave men and women held their own till the stages approach ed, and the Indians 'vamosed the ranche' in double quick. Thus the pioneers of our country live in perils ana dangers constantly, without aid or sympathy from the Government which ought to afford them sure pro tection." The Old Mlave Wblp. The relel planters of Tennessee, or Conservatives, as they call themselves, are discharging such colored men as they had in their employ, for voting the republican ticket at the late elec tion. They had better have a care what they do, for there is a movement on foot to confiscate the property of every man who was a rebel during the war. and who now abuses in this way the clemency of the Government in permitting him to retain his estate. which was clearly forfeited, and who now makes it an engine of oppression to loyal men, by discharging them from employment for such a cause. Slavery, u an institution, was swept out of existence by one sovereign act of the nation, but the spirit of slavery ingers long, and can only be killed by compelling it to strike its fangs into iw own vimus.

Sancho Panza's blessing on the man who first invented sleep, should be e-racofullv entailed on the crcntlpman. his heirs and assigns, who first provi ded sleeping accommodations for the weary railroad traveller. Sleeping cars were invented by Mr. Woodruff, one ot our best known and best es teemed citizens. They were introduc ed on the Pennsylvania railroad, and answered so well that other roads adopted them. A company, with a capital of a million and a quarter, was formed, to place the cars everywhere. Of course, up came new improvements, nnd other patents, which for economy's sake were brought up. The "silver Iialace car," about which so much has ately been said, is thus described: You enter it, at cither end, through an antcchamlicr, above which expands a silvered dome, lit with a magnificent lamp. Leaving this, you find yourself in a parlor, lined with luxurious sofas the whole well lighted and well ventilated. The interior is lined with the finest panelling of black walnut, ornamented with carving and silver buhl-work. Tho roof, to which are secured large silvered lamps, is suj) ported by silvered pillars the floor is carpeted with costly tapestry. Night comes, and in the course of a few min utes the whole changes again. Each pair of sofas changes to a lied, the beautiful ceiling comes down to meet you, nnd woes you to sleep; nnd long curtains fall to screen you from obser vation. fareaaes not Help-Meets. We do not suppose there is a maii anywhere quite so stony-hearted that he docs not enjoy caresses from a lov ing wife. It is a good thing to be loved and petted, nnd no man is above it. But some men think so much of this that they get nothing more, when they choose a companion for life. And some women know the power of ca resses so well that they employ it art fully, and neglect all other useful attainments. The result of which is any numlx-r of ill-assorted matches and a tleal of unhnppincss. It certainly is a good thing the ro mance and poetry of love. By "moon light and starlight" is not a foolish myth. The billing and cooing arc never to be despised, nor ought petting and caressing to fall into disrepute. It is only a stony heart that can affect disgust nt these things. But be not blinded by such nllurements. Soft words ifre not all thnt will be needed. Caressing hands and flashing eyes will not suffice to make a happy hope. Look for accomplishments of mind and the culture of refined thought and education in practical matters, without which the most romantio love will in time grow dim and cheerless. New York Gazelle. Soiled to a T. The very common expression, "' To suit or fit to a I that is, to suit ex actly, to fit perfectly is said to lc derived from the so-called T-square, a peculiar sort of ruler, having a cross piece at one end, which gives it the shape of a capital T. This instrument is much used by architects and mechan ical draughtsmen in drawing their plans. By placing the cross-piece against the straight edge of a drawing board, and drawing the pencil along the edge of the upright ruler, a true perpendicular line is insured, while a true right angle can be made by con tinuing the line along tho edge of the adjacent horizontal arm. Parallel lines are also made by means of the cross-piece, which is sometimes arrang' cd so as to lie set at different angles. As the T-square is often used to test the accuracy with which lines nnd an gles have been drawn, it is altogether probable that the proverbial phrase, "Suited to a T," refers to, and origi nated in, this tact. Change of Department Commanders. The President sent nn order to Gen. Grant, as acting Secretary of War, di recting him to relieve Gen. Sheridan as commander of the Fifth Militaay District, and to transfer Gen. George II. Thomas to the vacancy. The President further directed that Gen Sheridan should be ordered to the De partment of Missouri and Kansas, and Gen. Hancock to the Department of the Cumberland. Before the Adjutant General was directed to frame an order in accordance with these instructions, Gen. Grant proceeded to the White House, and conferred with the Presi dent relative to the transfer of Gen. Hancock, whose presence on the plains in connection with the Indian troubles General Grant thinks should not be nterfered with. The President ac quiesced, and it is probable that when the official order is issued General Hancock will not be disturbed. The regular order of supereedurc will be issued to-morrow. This change has been anticipated so long that it does not create much excitement. 9mm "I Don't See rr."-Lord Nelson was undoubtedly the author of this slang phrase. At the celebrated naval battle of Copenhagen, Nelson, who was determined to continue the fight, but whose attention had been called to a signal of the commanding officer to cease hostilities, placed his hand over his good eye, ana pretending to look with his blind one, said, "f don't see it," and at once ordered a brisk renew al of the engagement.

"I have Iiccn doctoring myself," said the languid fair one, with a smile, to the bluff though kind M. D., while he was feeling her pulse.
