And notthe leastnotable of these miracles is the 'xistenee, evtei now, of this wonderful race, to after bondages and .persecutions, sufferings and punishments, wrongs and oppressions, nl, aughterings and spoliations, such as the chronicles of no other nation record. There they'tre!-now, as in the tents of the Father of the Faitl, as in Egypt and in Baby lon, as in temple of Solomon and in the synagogues of Chorazin, Bethsaida and bf Capernaum, as in the private recesses of the to Eastern ghettoes, and of the Jtidenstrllisse of later days,--alas, how late!--there they are, ve proclaiming now, as then, the great shibbo leth of their faith, "Hear O! Israel! the Lord he oumr God is one God!" and now, as then, con he forming, as far as practicable, with the rites and ceremonies ordained by Moses. , Interesting all of these cannot but be to the Y, reflective mind ; most of them are of impres on sivesolgmnity; and many of them are of af feeting sigqifictnce. Not a few of them in a volve curious scientific facts and questions; an andparticularly is this the case in relation to t-. the divisions of time and the dependent regn fe lation of fasts and festivals, Our hours, a our days, our weeks, our months, our n_ years, are not the same as those of the d- *Hebews, although these be all meas . ured by the * motions of the earth orin relation to the leavenly bodies. Of the di vision of hours into minutes nothing was known to them. As the civil day com nences to with usatrp 4night, the astronomical at noon, r and ado with some people the day commences w veith the rising of the sun, so with the Jews n the day conaences with the setting of the sun. They understand 4t to have thus com 'y menced at 'the creation, according to the be Scriptnral statement, "And the Evening and a the Morning were the first day." This does !s- not alter the length of the day ; but, from the si- system of designating any portion of the day ri or night by ia term signifying both the night b and the day, it led to the counting of a part he of one day, withthewhole following night, and to a part of the next day, as three days and three ce nights. The division of the day into twenty f fopr hours was not known to the ancient , Jews. The period of daylight was dtided by e them only by the rising, culminating and set ting of thesun. ..Noother division is found in the Old Testament. At a later period they divided it like the Romans, into four parts, Se onsisting of three hours. These hours, wever; were not, ];ke ours, always equal. t Each of thesm was the twelfth part of the ' time the sn was above the horizon. So that if this in wintj Ni'as inse hours of our time, each of their hours would be but forty-five of our minutes. If in summer daylight Jased fifteen of oua hours, each of their . Swould be equal to an hour And ditee intes of our 'time, These unequal hours f are tehnia ycsled lled "temporaryhours." Iu Ji4a rthe dpys throughout the year were I nearly of equal length, however ; and so the ".temporary hours" -were not of as different a lengths as we have suppoged them, for, the r ke of ,ill.etration. v. A ees -or vespers the Jews distinguished two. Onecommencedat noonand terminated i t at the setting of the sun; the second com- I a, menced at the latter peridd. The time in- t eTuded between the two was spoken of as be- o tween the two vespers. l. The night-that is the period from sunset y n suinrise-Lamong the Hebrews was dliided I into four parts called "watches," each of themin is Jstig ,three temporary hours. The first e wn t itCh spoken of in Lamentations as "' thi o ' begitifinhgf thrnwatehes'" the second watch I to is called "the middle watgh," in the book of p Judges ; the third watch apears to have had C no other epitht ; the fourh was called " the v marting'watch." . The 'Jewish week consisted, of seven days c , including the Sabbath; but they had no eother a4 designations ;than those of their order rom E e the, Sabbath--firt, second, third, etc. The t 1ft ellifi~. 'Jewe, at a later day, gave the name s y p9f i's: roscraai gnifying " prephration "-to i the day, before the Sabbath. The laws Sobliged thesrews to so complete an abstinence o from :labor on the Sabbath, that they were ii a prohibited rom preparing food to esl "or'even ; froirligtitig re for any purpose. Another tl farn for the day before the Sabbath, not used y ,o byt~IeHellenists, was the Vesper of thewSab- b hsth; This copumenced at the ninth hour- -; three temporary hours after noon, that is, i T1' 'then set about preparing whatever n woki necessary for the Sabbath, so is to finish I before upset; and if they had a journey to g mtke they contrived it so as not to have to a travel after aunseto ~ Besides this week of a days, the Hebrews had a week of years, A a: period of seven years, the last of which was , ,alled aSabbatical year, and a week of weeks fc o of years, a period of forty-nine years, the last , r of which tas.calledthe Great Sabbatical year, to or the yeas of Jubilee. The Sabbatical year, hi v says Milman, "was another remarkable in- J1 1-stedce of. departure from every rule of politi- ~ cal wisdom, in reliance upon divine provi- to Sdenoce. The whole land was to lie fallow ; the lb t whole people were given up to legalized idle- te a ness. All danger of famine was to b3 pre- T; l yented by the supernaturally abundant har- be vest of the sixth year; but it is even more th remarkable, that serious evils did not ensue from this check on the national industry." d Spontaneous productions were common pro- th party. Of the Grand Sabbatical year, or year wi of Jubilee, we will speak presently. M Of months the Jews had like ourselves two tri kinds; but they were both lunar. One of ne these consisted of the period elapsing be- lif tweeanthe departure of the moon from a par ticular point in the heavens and her return to is it. This was called "the periodic month," ris and is equivalent to our "tropical month," or ral our".i, sidereal miro'th "-there -being a differ- H once of only some seven seconds between go, tbhese: It consisted of twenty-s'en days, att i bhouis, arid forty three minutes, nearly. sys XThe othr montlawas measured by the space off elapsing between two conseoutive conjuac- the i~ons of the sun and moon, and consisted of it i twenty nine days, twelve houirs, forty-four cer minute aa id some seooada. Thi' was the by month in general use.. To allow for the odd ma hours and minutes, the months were made wil to consistalternately of twenty-nine and thirty the days,..the Sanhedrim origibalIy regdlating hay them. The month was not calculated from sun the period of'the actual conjunction of the ago ssu and doOnea but from that pg the latter'a prs; bepoming visible after it, and hence the ap Selication of the Thrase "new moon." shich is a misnomer :s now applied among us. In order to discover this period, trusty otbsevers were sent to the neighboring mountains to observe it; and on seeing the crescent, they hastened, even on the sabbath, to inform the Sanhedrim, and the people were notified of it by the blowing of trumpets, while they cried out "The festival of new moon! the s festival of new moon! " This festival is based upon the command in Numbers, e. 28 v.11-15. e that a burnt offering shall be made in the Sbeginning of the months. It seldom hap d posed that in the serene climate of Judea the d moon was obscured by clouds; when it did, e the Sanhed-im decided when the month com menced. s The Jews had both a solar and a lunar year. The synodic month which comnprised the 0 autumnal equinox originally commenced the Syear. Bnubfter the departure from Egypt, r oses ordained that in memory of the pesiod - of the deliverance, which was the spring, with the month comprising the vernal equinox, d should commence a year, which is called the e sacred er ecclesiastical year, as the former is ,f called the civil year. The months had at. no other designation than that of their first, second, third, etc., except tha e d vernal equinox, called Abib (green corn-ear), and that of the autumnal equinox, calledEtha nun (in reference to the ten penitential days commencing it). About the time of the cap a tivity they were named Nisan (formerly Abib, and answering to parts of March and April,) f Iyar, Sivan, Tamuz, Ab, Elnul, Tisri, (formerly Ethanun, and answering to parts of Septem ber and October.) Marchesvan, Kitslen, TeLbt, s Shabet, and Adar. These twelve months, however, comprise but three hundred and fifty-ounr days, or more than eleven days less than the solar year; so that after three years ethe close of the lunar year would arrive more than a month before that of the solar year. To correct this, a thirteenth month, called embolismic or intercalary, .was added every third year. This was named Veadar. Other forms of anunal commencements ob served by the Jews were that of Elul, (the sixth month, answering to parts of August aud September,)fcom which, account was taken of all cattle brought forth, in order to regulate the tithes to be paid oh them; and that of Shabet, (the eleventh month, answering to pl arts of January and February,) from which was dated the period, within:three years from which it was prohibited to eat the fruait of y trees then being planted. t et another hind of yearly period observed I by the Israelites, as already observed, was the Jubilee, or Grand Sabbatical year. As the Sabbatical year consisted of a week of years, or seven years, so this consisted of a week of weeks of years, or seven times seven-that is, forty-nine years. The ordinance for this n :11 be found in the twenty-fifth chapter of Le viticus, from the eighth verse. In this year all debts were cancelled, all property which hadbeed sold or alienated was gratuitously re stored to the original owner, and all slaves were manumitted. "All the estates," says Milman, "were to revert to their original owners, all burdens and alienations ceased, and the whole land returned to the same state in which it stood at the first partition. A singular agra rian law, which maintained the general equality, and effectually prevented the accu mulation of lIge masses of property in one family, to the danger of the national inde pendence and the establishment of a great landed oligarchy." Tn +hiv " 5t-+..l n ++,,. 4d,,:o,.«ý ,r a"._ ae In this-iketch of the divisions of time at among the Israelites, it is to be observed that in neither scientific exactness nor critical deter minatidn on disputed points is pretended to. r d Adeqluateness for popular purposes-is all that ad is aimed at, with the object of illustrating how 1- much more may be involved in a question at a- tracting so little attention as a Jewish festival a- ordinarily does among us. It was suggested by the fact that with the setting of the sun at yesterday cdmmenced the great festival of d Rosh Hashanah, or the Feast of Trumpets, as ushering in the civil year 5627 of the Jewish at era. The former name signifies "Beginning if of the Year," equivalent in name to our New h Year's Day. It is called the Feast of Trum >f pets, pr- excellence, to distinguish it from osh d Chodesh, as the first of every other month oe was called, on which also, as has been seen, trumpets were blown. Its observance is thus ps commanded : or "And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying m Speak unto the children of Israel, saying : In t to the seventh month, in the first of the month, i to shallye have a Sabbath, a memorial of blow o ing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye w shall do no servile work; but ye shall offer an e offering, made by fire, unto the Lord."-Levit e icus, chapter 23, verses 23-25. " And in the seventh month, on the first of r the month; ye shall have a holy convocation; d ye shall do no servile work; it is a day of it blowing of trumpets unto yo."--Numbers, - Ihipter 29, 1st veire: S4, The five verses following that last quoted r may be refened to for particulars of the offer Ssinge commande dto bema e.' Next to 0om - KIippur; `the =gret Day of Atondihent,-which Soccurs on the tenth day after it, Rosh Hash anah is considered the most solemn holiday a of the year, especially as commencing the "Ten Days of Repentence," closing with the former holiday; and as being the day on which the creation of the world was comple ted; that on which the sacrifice of Isaac by I his father took place'; and that on which the MIessiah will come. The feast is also called "Yonm Hadin," or Day of Judgment, for the teachings of the Rabbis say that on that day a the.Almighty reviews the career of every crea- a-, ture, meting out its fate for the next year. "'] The belief was that on this day the good and bad deeds of each individual were balanced in - the three books : one the book of life in which good acts were entered; one the book of death, in which evil deeds were recorded ; and the third the boob of the middle state, in which indifferent actions were inscribed. Maimodides says that the blowing of the a trumpets is symbolic of the awaking of sin ners to repentance and to the leading of a new life. The hearing of the sound of the trumpets eoie is obligatory on every Israelite, and at thel" rising of the sun to-day, the blowing of the e:. ram's-horn, or Shopharl, as it is called in a,,r Hebrew, will commence in each of the synay- A gogues of the city, and the faithful will be in eel attendance. In the English and German syr synagogues they usually appear in shrouds to c, offer their prayers; but this is not done among - the Spanish and Portuguese. Jews. Whether it is among the Polish Jews or not, we are not P, certain. The holiday is further particularized by'congratulations among friends, differences made up among enemies, and general good will prevailing. The festival will last two days, that is, till sunset-or more accurately, per- ans haps, till starlight-to-morrow evening. At Boa sunset this evening the congregation will t ) again assemble, and, commencing with praeyer go throouh religious services, Ty i morrow till noon the same. The Shopliar will again be sounded ill tie mornriin'g, end no ortho dox israelite will partake of any food before havring hc.erd that tone, wlch - to rerilnd him that ctod e it itn jud-gment, and that tlh; same voice s.:11 anounee the last judgment. 'The twenty--t'st and twenty-second bhapters i of Geneis, reciting the birth andl sacritice of SIsaac, will be recited, together with the first I chapter of Samuel; and appropliate sermons Swill be preached. Again in the evening, the re"gious services will he repeated; and so the t festival ofl Rosh Hashanah will close. Those - of our renders who may have an opportunity 1;t find an early mor.iing visit to the syna gogue, as we have intimated, equally interest ing, iteressive, and significant. The ram's-horn is blown every moning doring the ten penitential days, and on the evening closing Tom Kipper-, the last of them.
