f The Executive Committee or the Lutheran Orphans'
Home at Oermantown make an appeal In lclialfof
the Institution, In which they say : "This Institution
kas been so lontr crippled In lis benevolent opera
tions by the want of means, and has been so lonjr
burdened by a heavy debt, that It Is now proposed,
by a concentrated eti'ort from all parts of tho Church,
to pay on" the entire debt, and, If possible, relieve tho
Home forever from emtiarruMHiiient. This Is pro
posed to be done through the medium of a Fair, to
I held in tho city of Philadelphia, some tlmo durlnir
the cominit autumn, of which piirtlctilar time anil
ulHce due notice will be given. When It Is remem
bered how much wits accomplished, through this
name Instrnmentallty, In bcliulf of the sick and
wounded soldiers during the summer of 1hi4, and
when we reflect upon the great wealth and liberality
of our Church, which has done so much In past
yeiirs In the way of benevolence and charity, we feel
Jure that a result will be attained commensurate
with the Importance and magnitude of the work we
kave undertaken. We appeal to you In leluiir of the
iidlirent orphan children, who naturally look to us
for support and education; many of them are the
children of the noble men who pave their lives In
maintaining the union and perpetuity of our country.
Both Christian feeling ami patriotism, therefore,
Krompt ns to earnest ell'nrt, and even aucrittce, In be
slf of these little ones whom (loci has given us to
uluuuteand nurture for Hint. On r appeal Is to all
portions of the community: to the various industrial
c'lasHF.s, to give the products of their skill nnd work
manship: to men of nil professions, to contribute to
their substance to advance the object we have in
view: to the women and children of our Church, to
tlo what thev can to further the cause."

Bishop Lynch will lecture In St, Michael's Catholic
Church next Thursday evening In aid of the poor.
May Day. The 1st of May a month synonymous
with beauty, gladness, and gushing freshness has
come, not lit smiles, but in tears. Perhaps, after all.
however, what we call tears arc but tho sprinkled
drops of water with which the coy maiden laves her
face ere she puts In an appearance fully dressed and
blooming. At any rate, for years back almost uni
formly, has not this been her custom ? The "May
lavs'' of yore we know no more. The elders among
tis'tell ns of sunshine, mirth, and frolic on the first
of the month, and we hear their stories, as we look
upon old pictures, with the consciousness that the
like will never, mayhap, he repeated. Even the
Tlcasunt and Jolly poets of old used to delight in
'OtDPartng this month to a lHautlful maiden, clothed
In Burihlu! BtuI scattering flowers, while she danced
to the""niusic "f Wrl and rippling streams. The
poets of our day siug 13 different strain. Never
theless, we know that elCT'.S, Z? uloom, and
chilliness of to-day will be succeeded by warmth and
jovousness to-morrow. Pretty May never yet haa
milked it for a full thirty-one days. Neither will she
this year. Trees, bushes, and tho grass of the field
have opened their leaves to welcome her, and so in
viting is their call that she must respond. Uood-by,
tickle April !

l..xiluiiiH Hie ('axe at I.cuuili.
The New Yurk Tribune of this morning contains
the following article 011 its editorial page, by Horace
Greeley :
Mr. John It Young tins been for some four years
employed on the Tributu; and for nearly three years
has held an important though subordinate position
in Its editorial department. Late last week, we were
shown package of what were said to be (though
not sifrned with his name) his private, confidential
letters, written nwlnly in 1I7, to his most intimate
friend from boyhood nnd the associate
In some newspnner enterprise or enterprises at
Philadelphia. With these letters were two
or three others also strictly private in their
nature which were said to have been
written by his brother nnd by others of his Intimate
friends and business associates the purport of the
whole lielng that the writers were in great straits for
money to sustain their enterprise or enterprises, aud
that they suggested to, and discussed with, each
other various plans for tilling tho aching void. They
were also troubled about the lack of news for their
bantling, nnd (being refused tho dmot"!is of the
Associated Press oil any terms) resorted to shifts to
supply the delliciency. Interspersed with these were
various anticipations, speculations, criticisms on
certain of his associates in the Tribune office, etc..
such as are oftener written than read by any one but
the person specially addressed, and which 'make no
appeal to the judgment or sympathy of any other.
These private letters, or portions of letters, gar
nished with sensation head-lines and spicy com
ments, often wholly unjustilleil by the text, tilled
some four columns of the Sun'x editorial page, unci
were liitroiiucen witn nue noiinsti as tne exposure
Cf a plot whereat Integrity must stand aghast ami
Humanity veil her lace to hide Hie crimson of her
agonizing blushes.
The ,snn, we are sure, doe3 us injustice in assum
ing that this journal has any '"reputation." for un
earthing nnd publishing such stuff ns this. Three
fourths of it was matter in which the public hud and
could have no legitimate interest, the blazoning of
which could gratify no decent curiosity, and to
print which at all was simply an outrage. Mr.
Young assures ns that, while he wrote some of the
private notes therein attributed to him, ho is
quite certain thut the rest of them never
flowed from his mind or pen, or else they have been
so garbled and transformed as to ehuuge their mean
ing entirely. All must know that language is often
used in the freedom of friendly intimacy which,
though innocently nieaut, would sound badly If over
heard by strangers. Thus A says to his next
frichd It, "I am abominably hard up, and
must strike some one for 11000 before
Saturday night," meaning only that he
must induce some one to pay him or lend htm that
amount; yet the words are susceptible of a quite
diil'erent interpretation. There are few who write at
all freely, in the eonudonce of close intimacy, who
have not written some senteuces which they would
be startled to And printed uud coldly criticized by
strangers as expressing literally their purposes or
convictions.
The charges on which Mr. t oung stands arraigned
by the . on the strength of these letters are sub
stantially these:
1. Having exaggerated conceit of his own abili
ties and iiunlillcatious for journalism, with a corres
ponding pelective appreciation of the merits of some
of his present or recent associates.
2. Aiiusmg nis position on me m mine ami nis in
fluence as 11 iournalist to promote his private ends.
and especially to procure louns or subsidies for his
or nis ineinis Philadelphia venture or ventures.
8. Betraying the confidence reposed in him by this
establishment to transmit surreptitiously the des
patches of the Associated Press to his Philadelphia
journal or Journals not entitled to receive them.
Yt 1th the first or these imputations me punuc mis
no proper business; the second we are cnulldeut is
false and unfounded; the third we trust will prove
equallvso; but this involves the interests of others
wuose right to a searching investigation is unques
tionable, no matter what they must think of the
means whereby it has been rendered necessary. Wo
call, therefore, upon our partners In tho Associated
i-ress to institute lortliwitn a rigorous situiui.t,
before some Impartial arbiter or tribunal, of the
charges against Mr. Young with regard to the des
patches or the association, proposing to uim- no
part In that scrutiny unless we are made the party de
fendant, but Insisting that Mr. Young, or whoever
may tie suspected or implicated, shall not ne sianncu
in the back, but shall have the fullest opportunity for
explanation and defense. We need not add that we
consider the offense alleged a very grave one, espe
cially if the oilender be one honored and trusted as
Mr. Young hus been. Hut, pending such scrutiny,
we beg that it lie understood that Mr. Young has not
been removed, imr suspended, nor in any manner
condemned by us, us has brell mistakenly asserted
ny tut" Mm, and telegraphed till over the coiintr. 11
is not our eusiiiiu to miss Judgment on any one on
the strength of a 1111 i indictment, especially when
tlie li i n liuir nf it wii plainly impelled by envy, ma
lice, and bllphtcd aspirations. II.
