The regular circulation of Thi 8" for gHreA entllrvj Am. IS. me. wis : To lei lor the week a.Ogl laVe tearate Propound Amendment to Bl the ConttHntloB. We deemod It our duty, many months Mo, to call attention to an effort, which Hi fcad tben already been set on foot, to lntro- ttaoe religious and sectarian questions Into B American politico, and thus array the dlf- fhrent denominations In bitterness ngnlnst noh other. The little cloud, nt that time HB atot bigger than n man's huud, now begins lo oast ita dark and threatening shadow fjver the land. A measure of tho grarost HB knportance has Just been adopted by the B Restate of the United Puttee. It Is of a B haractvr to awaken the serious reflection B gT tho intelligent people of the country. HB The measure tn which wo refer Is nothing HB tm than a prnpnsltion to amend the Cou- fcUtutioiiof the I'nlted Htates. It Is couched HB hi the following terms : "gssehvil.

If concurred in by the Hi Bouse of Representatives, and ratified by B undent number ot State Legislatures, Bj Vuuld out off many approp rlations such Bs our own Leglalature Is in the habit of HB Biaklng to edtieatioual institutions under Hlj the oontrol of the Catholics, or of some Ha attber religious denomination. Hi We advocate the largest, the most entire HB (allglout liberty. It seems to be an ingre H flient of the very soli, without which the aarth would grow barren, In America a HV aomponrnt part of the atmosphere, with- B Mt which tho air would lose its elastlolty, Bj and we could not brenthe freely. Perfect B ; freedom tu religious matters appears to us B o be the essential foundation, without B ; blob no pure and uudeflled religion can I anywhere be erected. Wo worship only Qoo, Nor even Him B ' aroept in our own way. B The practical question arises, what need B l i there of any amendment of the Const!- B ' I tattoo on this subject ? Is Its purpose to B ; ' BBonre religious liberty ? We hare en- B foyad that fully and without molestation BK abrougbout the hundred years of our ex- BH . Menoe which have just closed. BK I The very first Amendment to the Con- BB BUtution, which weut iuto effect in 1701, B& provides that HHr " Con ere aa ar.au make no law rainaetinff an tatab- HB yjaaapt ot rcliflon, or prouleiUut Un Iree axaralM H , That was all that In the opinion of the BB Kavolutlonary fathers was required on BVj Biat subject In our opinion It Is all that Bj k required now. Why try the expert- BS , snent of something new when that which BE 1 B old bos worked so well ? H, The hand of the demagogue may mar, It Bft lannot mend the Constitution as framed HB BJf our Fathers. Hi Tae Looks of the Candidates. Hi Kow that all the letters of acceptance of HB the candidates for President and Viee- Hl' Prcsidont are In, and the issue Is fairly Bv Joined between Tilden and Reform and Hi Bated and (Iriiiitiain, it is a proper mo- BM ; Blent to consider philosophically the com- HH parative looks of the candidates. The BB features of Haver and Wheeler and H ' Tilden mid Henuiik kh, as more or letw BB erodely pictured, ore known to every BB i fjloughljoy of the land. They hang in H f srvery harder shop, appear in every bar- Bm , j room, and meet the gaze of the loungers Bb tu every village bar-ioom. Therefore, in BB , axamining the lineaments of tbeso men, all B J readers will follow us intelligently, crttl- BB ' aally, and with deep interest. BB Personal beauty in man is a gift not to B fee despised, yet some of the greatest men BB af the world have got along without it ; BB and unless it be accompanied by intellect- BH sal power or moral excellence, it brings BB father reproach than praise to its possessor. BK '. 4Though we foci satisfaction in the society BB ' ( Bf a woman gifted with rare charms of BB Aeauty and cxpreesion, even though she BB jgiaa not tho, genius of Geoboi Eliot, or pny genius ut all, uud wt feel that her moral ft jBaaku up is not symmetrical, yet such is B iu.t the cure t Itli a inau. If lie lacks brume BB . Bud heiirt Initb, though he may huve .line B' ' hysicul roiortiona, we ttiin from him in BJ eontempt. If, however, n lu the case ot Bh ur mitny-sidt'd contemporary of the BB 'yVorld, Mr. IIi iilueht, he lias the form of BM: an Al'OLLo will most of the Kiftn of the BM 1 uses thereunto added, e havu delight B f the eye as well u of the mind and hem t BR In bis proaelice. Dut also gome of the BBU Sgltost of men have been the hi rocs of BH Boolcty.

Tu Uj (, Je BaBsW'LaB'a to always distinctly remember onoe you have seen It, and Hayek's Is one such as yon may see every day. HaB" Is a man of good and kind impulses, not self-seeking, but Inculpable of leaving any impress of individuality on those about him. Tildbw is an acute observer and a resourceful man ager, a man of Intellect rather than senti ment, and a sort of person to boss the job when ho has a hand In It. Hath will be run by Cam ebon, IIlaini, Morton, and CnANiu.Eii, stronger men than he. Tilde will run the machine himself, and use other people rather than suffer them to use him. Of the candidates for Vice-President, IlBirDRic'Kr) Is by far the handsomer and more original man. He is a sort of man to gain personal popularity and to be liked of men and women both, and yet to go his own gait. He has a fine, open coun tenance, alert, Intelligent, and courageous. Wheeler Is a well-looklug man, earnest and thoughtful, but of no unusual strength of Intellect and no remarkable power in any direction. He Is a very respectable person evidently, but ho has never set the river afire, and probably never will. If wo were going to pick out a Sunday school superintendent wo should at once prefer Hates; but If wc were after a Pios Ident of the I'nlted Slates, Tilden would be our man. If we were seeking a first class Vice-President of a big meeting where It was desirable to have ponderosity on the pint form, Wiiekuch would occur to an at once. If. however, we were deciding upon n candidate to vote for for Vloe Prcsldcut of tho I'nlted Htotes, wc shouldn't think of him for a moment ; but If kind fortune gave us the chance of taking llDMiiiH KH, we should vote for him with readiness and confidence. This Is the way in which the observing person, capable of discerning character from faces, must decide the t lies t Ion ot the comparative looks of the candidates. Hav ing done that, he will on Tuesday, the seventh day of next November, proceed to the polls at an early hour aud vote for Tildcn and IIendrickfi, and thus aid In the great work of reform, which the prospeiity antl even the safety of the oouutry demand at this time, and which overrides and includes all other issues. Sitting Ball and the V. I. Ordaaaee Dapartmeat. WASfttxoTOir, Aur. 8 Reports received at the War Department from Usu. SnanDix aver thai man ot tor Indiana now coming into the rnerratlona carry arms captured from the Serenm Caralrv In the late Crerin maaaacre. Every rifled musket, otrblne or pistol placed in the hands of the United States soldiers is indelibly stamped by indenting its number Into the metal ot tho barrel, generally near the breech or breeeh block. TliU is dune while the weapon Is in process of manufacture, whether by the Govern niout In Its arsenals or by private corpora tions in their workshops. In all privato firms a list of sales Is kept, as a matter of course, showing the namos of the pur chasers of oertaln lot of arms. It is but fair to presume that this list shows also the numbers corresponding to the arms old. Now, If the V. S. Urdnanoe Depart ment is equally careful and business-like in the performance of lu duties, it should have in itepossessionslmllar Hats, by which even the simplest-minded olerk could tell at n glauce to wh'ch Captain certalu num bered arms were issued. By this means, whenever an arm is found it should be the easiest matter in the world to trace back its ownership. Company commanders, as a rule, deem this matter of thu numbers so Important that immediately on the receipt of a new invoico of arms the numbers aro all regis tered iu a book, and on being issued to their men tho number of each is entered opposite the name of the man to whom It is issued. As the arms are received by the company oommauders directly from the ordnauoo storehouses, the connection between the manufacture of a weapon and Its ultimate disposition is very close, and should not be very difficult to trace. Even if the compa ny records of the oompanlos that perished with Ci'ster have beou lost, still, If the Ordnance Department bos done its duty, it is possible to ascertain the number cor responding to every firearm issuttd to each company In his commaud, though with out those records It could nut be ascertain ed which particular man was responsible for any given numbered rifle or pistol. The present emergency should be an in teresting evout for the Ordnance Depart meut, as indicative of tho manner in which its business Is conducted i and If on the arrest and dlsarmlug of the Indians returning to the agencies, the Ordnanoo Department is able to show that certain firearms belonged to oertaln soldiers killed in theCusTBR fight, the Indians will have learned one lessou at least, uamely, that a battlefield Is a dangerous source of supply for their war material. Ifo More Pensions. The proposition to grant a pension, for life, to the present President of the t'ultcd Htates, and to rll future Presidents after their retirement from office, should be steruly resisted in the interest of the peo ple. Pensions are paid by the labor of tho country : and every dollar added to the pension list wrings another drop of sweat from tho brow of luboi. What reasou is theio why men should go to work uud turn leu thousand dollars a year to irive to Quo. Q ham fur nothing, us lung us he lives J (Jha.nt has received a groat deal of mouey ulready euougb to make him in dependent if not li-'h. The salary of the President has been doubled during his ndministrulion, and he could easily hare saved one hundred thousand dollurs out of that. If he hit" chnxeu to go Into Wall street and speculate, and hits lost it, that is hl business, aud theio Is no good rea son why the people should make it up tu him. It is easy to vote pensions ; but for the laborers of the country to earn the money to pay them is not so easy. The Chicago Homicide. The ('in unci's Jury at Chicago concluded then iU'iucM on thu body of Fuam ih IIan roiin, Killed by Ai.kxaniii;ii Sullivan w iihout deiioiuiiiitliug tho crime of Sri.i.i i but aa tiny it commended that ho bt in hi to uiiawor beturo tho Cuiniiial ( ouit without bail the Inference is thut they coiirldcicd it murder. The ti ml of Sru.ivAN whenever it shall take place will possess extraordinary In tel est. The provocation offered to him was very great; first, in tho unnuymoiis letter assailing his wife, of which Han rono admitted himself to be the author; and seooudly, In Hanfohu's strikiug Mrs. Hcllivan a blow during the unfile be tween him and her busbaud lu tho streot. The Coroner's jury, however, It seems, did not fljul mfAvirUt ot iuUflcaU0 of wnse In Iheee flagrant provocation to permit him to be balled. An interesting point in the trial may grow out of the peculiar motive with whlob the shot was fired. Hullivan says and we soe no reason to doubt bis state mentthat his intentlou was to maim Hanfoud to break the arm that bad dealt a blow to his wife. It was a most deplorable tragedy, and will cast a gloom over all the future of , the families of the slayer and the slain. ToDar's Event. The performance of Richard Waonbr'b groat musical and dramatic composition begins to-day at Dayreutn, in Bavaria. For this event enormous preparations bnvo been made. A vast subscription has been raised, and the King of Bavaria has agreed to make good any deficiency. A special theatre has beon erected. Ma chinery has been constructed of a more powerful and efficient character than any before applied for the production of stage effects; tho most renowned artists, Instru mental aud vocal, assist In the enterprise; while tho work to be represented no less than four consecutive operas, nil treating different branches of the same subject, each one complete In Itself, yet nil joining lu the final cntatropho Is bollevod to be the masterpiece of one of the most auda cious, original, nnd powerful geniuses of the century. Of those four dramas, a thorough and very tntorcting account is given on another page of this paper. It Is from the pen of Dr. Leopold DAMitomii. who is now iu Uuyreuth, and will report from there tor The Pi n upon the actual per formance. As this account shows, Wag ner treats in tins work the great epical legend of tho (lermitmc race, the legend of Slump or HiEurniEn. The form of the story most commonly known Is ttat re lated in tho Mctiii(fi LU1. From this particular version of the legend, however, be tins considerably departed, adopting in stead the main features of the same story as they are presented in the Icolaudlc Eddo, while such variations a are neces sary for the purposes of his drama, though derived from his own imagination, aro yet so shaped as to form a congruous whole with the rest. As a mere literary production, this work of Waoker's Is ex ceedingly remarkable, and we presume that the music with which be baa accom panied It will be found even more im portant, majestic, and wonderful. In a leading editorial article on " Spuri ous Borrow." the PtiWtc LttlQtr analyses tbe va rious forms of grief, aud sternly exposes those Impostor who seek, with crocodile tears, to play upon the hearts of tho sympathetic. Ttaore Is no nustakloir tbe authorship of the article. The prose uf (J. Washington Cuilds, A. M., exhibits tbe s ime tenderly lachrymose charac teristics which have made his verses so widely read and universally admired. Who but Cnn.DS, A. M., could hsve written tbls noble pasaaee : "Thrre la, perhaps, no enVctation so repu.ilre to food at-nac and rinccnty a thr affVciatinn of eorrow. It proline a an emotion ao.newliat similar tn that which we experience on wit neaeir f a borieaQde upon something specially aarrcd and preciunato oar neerta Kutliliui can uioic lu ! command our revt-rence and lenderuria than Ihu pretence of a real aorrow. noblr borne ; und nothing can m re quk-klr escltv nu, cnnteinnt anil In dtgoaiion than the i.na ahicli wool i feua a rr'ef waich la not tell, and hypocritically ootam a ejmpalhy lo which there H no cialm.

" Thus, with dignity, does tbe great mortuary bard rebuke tbe Incompetent Imitators who vainly try to do obituary verse after his master ly manner. They may aflo, t bis measures, they may even ohelarlie bis words ; but the Ir pro ductions, as Child. A. M., truly observes, sr nothing more tbau week and puerile burlesques. In beautiful contrast with tbls description of spurious sorrow, Is tbe following picture of bis own mission and work! " 1 here li no balm so soothing, lo times of tronble, as the at-adr performance of doty, no tonic ao Invigorat ing to the bi art eihanated by sotrow aa the sympathy ai.d Id it Kl.iilT txtcuda lo crery Buffering brother In helping other to hear tnclr burdens, our own grow light, and the con-olation we girc to them return to rfierr our own wuuuded aplrita Where real grief la thus home and thua conquered, fancied grievance, c n nu no p ace, and the aaVctailou of sorrow will be Im possible." Three admirable words give a new and tender significance to the following gems, which are In ClllLDS, A. M.'s most exilted style, and which we cull from tbe same Impression of tbe iuMk iffljcr: "Ira eai boa'ili Itsoim's cradle, and watched her aa sbi ao tit. And alien wit i pain 1 beard ber moan, how bitterly 1 i pt. I've pre., d liloixt to my bjeom, In hope to lull her pain, And slaed her little forehead, and wlihed ber well again. Uone lo meet her brother." "There was no one by To aee tit r di", Excepting ti'iii alone, But well he anew She ai prepared, Anu so he look bar boms." Hare are true grief and true poesy blended In immortal verse) There Is no burlesquing such balm as this. We hasten to give Hannibal Hamlin credit. He voted against tbs amendment re storing the franking privilege. W have been waiting for years for tbe opportunity to say something good about old Hannibal We bare received several letters request ing ua to employ ythstsver Influence we may possess with Oot.

The death of the Brooklyn boy. Gen. Harht KaEVB, of tbe liberating army of Cuba Is generally discredited In Havana. The following la tbe official announcement of bla death aa published In tbs Ciorto de la Ma rina of the Mb Inst.: " We have just received official advice tbat the so called Insurgent Brig -cten llassv Kssvis.

As to tho telegruph polos lu the streets no doubt many of them are rotten, and others are all the lime getting rotten, and tno whole mass of them prsseut an unalgbth appearance, and they are an obstruction and a nulsanco. The fact Is tbat the telegraph wires of great cities ought not to be put ou poles at all, but abould bs put In underground tubes, as tbey are In many of tbe great cities of Europe.

Two grand fights are In progross at 011 mnre's Garden ono between the friends of Levy and Arbuckle, the other between tbe alligator and tbe gold fish. Moth are utterly unnecessary. Levy Is an expert manipulator. Arbuckle Is an artistic snlolat. Neither crones tbs other' path. Neither could possibly excel In the other's s pe el illy. Ho with the alligator and the gold fish. The alligator I fond of fresh meat give It blm. Tbe gold flab (Imply ask an uninterrupted swim about tbe base of a fountain let them have It. To-nlght-every night. In fact but to-night especially -tho Injudicious friends of two nf;Mr. Snook's attraction will mass themselves at the base of Mr. Ollmore'o platform to clap them selves red and sbout themselves hoarse In honor ot tbelr f ivorlto cornot. How Idle such an Idol. Who aro these men. Judged critically f Mr. Levy is sn English Jew, short, stout, fat, and fussy, with n corkscrew moustache and the largest ylnd power on reco-d. ThcgrettUar num never oifiieil ngre iter curiosity than Levy's lungs. Lew's lungs are worth t'MO a week, fifty two week In th year, ana t'.H's precisely M, 100 per annum, ti rly twice a m nob a the rev erend rector of Trinity in paid, and olghteen times as much a many of the best clerks In our chief mercantile houses draw for tbslr entire time and service. Evidently It pay to be a blower. Levy Is about forty vsars of age. When I first knew him he was the cornot chief In tbe famous Grenadier Hand of the Hrltlsh army. Ho was Just the same then as now, eyeglass, waxod hair, white coat and lungs, lllsolrof "Uud Have tbe (Jueen" has minv times announced the comloj of Her Gracious Nibs Victoria, and "Hall to th Chief" from Levy's little silver huglo ha been the signal a thom.md times for "three cheer for the Duke of Wellington." I don't know how he drifted Into the band of a theatre, hut be did, and his enoore played tbe very mischief with the regular performance. Every one was charmed, nnd the boys In tho gal lery bet peanuts on his st.ying puwer, wblob was and la slmplv Immense. The Cnlted Btatps first know Levy twelve year ago. when I'apa llateinan eaoortod the su perb Parepa to our shores. In her sweeping train were two little men Carl Itosa and Levy. Hh liked them both. Levy accompanied ber en hla cornet, and aeot bis clarion tones, sweet and full and round, tu the heart of every bearer, the soboes of her glo rious voice. But Hosa accompanied her to and from the concert hall, and fastened but tender grapnel about her loving heart, oarslsss ef what audi tors heard or gossips aald. Triumph succdd triumph. Artists struck th bow uf praise on the fiddle back of compli ment, until Levy began to believe be wsa really an artist. Then Jim risk went and saw, sod conquered blm. Jim wsa a princely fellow. There waa nothing smsll about Jim, and when IVivy hesi tated, he almply called for a contract, offered blm ten thousand dollars a yeir to play for him, whenever and wherever be, Jim, pleased, and it wis signed tben and there. It might not be fair tu tail Just where Flsk took blm to ply, but It would be verry funny. Hut let that pass. Suffice It that he thoroughly earned his large salarv. and when Flsk died be put a little blaok rim round one of bis cornet kers, and refused to be oumforted for several hours. After a series of up ao 1 downs, Mr. Levy waa engaged by Messrs. Shook It Fainter nut a a member of Ollmore' Band aa a star fetture at the Garden. He ha played tber fur 3M a weak sttadilv. Hundreds of people ao simply to hear him. He has tbo most wonderful p iwer of sostciiufo ever known. He oan go up higher and at.ty there longer tban any cornet player, living or dead. Ditto lower. That's bis strength. Now, look at Arbuckle. In tbe first place, be is not an Englishman, as stated. H was boro in Scotland, and waa a long time oorn't chief la tbe royal army. He left borne twenty-seven rears ago, and earns to the United States six teen yeir ago. Since that time be bis been continuously with Oilmore, and bis profession Is worth to him about $7,000 a year. Levy pi its light, lutrloate. brilliant music: Arbuckle affects solid, cltsstcal, thoughtful music. His mastery of technique ti perfect. Fie gives a round, full, lordly tone from hla In strument, and it no more Ilka Levy In manner, habit r r expression than a staid, sturdy, reliable horse Is like a young, frisky, and full-of-the-old-llarry colt. Tbe two men ore what I call specialists. Levy Is a star soloist. Arbuckle Is leader of a stir band. Tbe on would ho out of his element wer he to exchange place with bis so-calloJ rival, and ao would the other. But for ah that the friends of ench are striv ing for supremacy, and every night theyjmuko not only a great racket, but a great deal of fun fur the lookers-on. To-night they are to play nlos, ant an effort will he made to run tbe encore element far Into the night. But these buglers are not tbe only features lo this res (n urbr. I have mectloned the alligator. I must nut forgot Mr. Ulltnore and bla military band. W havo written and beard a gr.-at deal sbout Theodore Thomas and his far-tamed or chestra.

V7bu Moody exhorted and Banks sang at tbe nippodrome they had an Inquiry room, In to which the thirsty sinotr went for consola tion. Thirsty ainners go there Just the same now, but tbey go, I am pslnsd to say. for beer. On some oeeaslons the bar receipts are 11,000 each night. They havo reached tbe sum of 11.500. I tell you that long and narrow way which leadeth from end to end of the spacious Osrden is a sight to behold on a dry and hiated night. Hundreds and thousand of free and enlighten ed men struggling for a glass of beer ; eccentric mirrors In which on' Image Is variously dis torted ; a miniature Creed moor, where many a nickel changos ownership; little round tablos, at which alt the domestic Teuton and his thirsty brood ; group of politicians, from little Johnny Davenport to big John Morrlsser, betting and wrangling over the future of their ticket; the orchestra In uniform, and the attendants In costume all oombinlng to form a cosmopolitan, kaialdesooplo picture sa unique as it Is interest ing. On of Mr. Shonk's Ideas has been to add from time to time various kinds of temporary attrac tions to the Osrden. Offenbach for Instance. For awhile Offenbach was a curiosity, but peo ple very soon tired of seeing, at a distance, a baldheaded man. In glasses, waving a baton vigorously, and perspiring profusely ; even If It were Offenbach conducting the rendering of bis own compositions. Almee and her friends lost large money on Offenb.ch. Than Mr. Shook secured Madame Pnpoen belm, the victim of Wachtel's meanness. She sings like n bird, winning golden opinions from the critical, and most cordial receptions from the ordinary assemblage. The Olee Club, Mr. Sohst, Mr. W. II. Stanley, and others are pre sented from time to time, and It Is not to bs wondered at that tbe people patronise tbe plaoe. The polloe are not needed. A merle, in crowds, as a rule, take care of tbomselves, and with the exception nf a brutal assault by a policeman on a young man who Insisted on beating a table with his cane, f have never seen a disturbance. Notables go tbere, of course. Uom Pedro, Don Cirlos, and all the great and good " take It In," aa one of tbe thing to do. I tblnk It' worth It. The cascade la a work of art. The architectu ral beauty of tbo place la undonlable. Tbe land scape la a picture. The statuary la not of th Aral order. 1 he fountains are refreshing. The muato I floe and tbe beer Is good. If aucb a place sucoeeds In summer, why not In winter? Floor It over and have a grand oonoert ball, or a skaling parlor with macadamised surfaoe. Such a speculation would pay If properly man aged, because It 1 located in tbe heart of tbe town. As it Is now, It Is a resort for strangers who want to see the sights. Politicians make It a rendesvous. Almost aor night one oan hear words of wisdom from "safe men," and words of a rival from the old backs, wbo can't aeem to see tbat they are of the past, and of no aooount tn the present, Toung fulks like to take a bos and gossip about th promsnaders, and many a curious aoene a close observer detect as he takes bla walk around tbe ring. Wltb tbe poealbl exception of the bar, I re ally ean't aty that there la an objectionable fea ture about tbe place. Ned Ollmore spends nearly all bis time in tbe barroom, to see that everything la right. Pat Ollmore devotes him self to tbe music, and Mr. Shook passe at least sixteen bours a day luslde the vaat pavilion, where be has planted over $100,000, tbe fruit of which thua far ha been pleasant and profitable. Tbls evening tbere will be rare entertainment. Tbe programme Is arranged largely wltb a view of embllng Levy and Arbuckle to display their proficiency on tbe cornet. But the contest I absurd. It 1 as If tbs late James Oordon Bennett and the late Henry J. Raymond had bean pitted sgalast eaoh other the one to lay tbe foundation of a paper, the other to write a party platform. In other word, tbere can be no rivalry between men of different specialties. But tbe sport will be great, and the bested partisans of the one will en deavor to outclap tbe extravagant laudsrs of tbe other tbe Oardsn making all tbe profit. MomtauB X. AaaHbrr Theory af Hell. To tbb Editob or Tux Sum Sir: The questions and explanations about bell wblob recently appeared In your paper Induce me to send to you tbe following communication In re gard to that Interesting subject, with tbe expec tation tbat It may be of Interest to some of your reader. A far a I hav been able to trace, the origination and tbe whereabouts of hell Is In short Ibis : Near tbe city of Jerusalem la a val ley named Oe-hlnoin. To thla valley the Jews used to bring all dead and uaeleaa animals. A largo tiro of all kinds nf combustibles waa built and tbe c ireasses burned to ashes. Tne same waa dune with all executed criminals aud such suicides to whom an h mumble burial was de nied, lhis place of cremation wa called Ge henna. A far hack as Solomon and llivld this (li henna li mentl ,ne I. and the express! n. " lie li ripe f t (Joln-nn V was then in common use. sa nowtnitvs. " lie is k'olnj to hell." No el.i iu Jew would sot his foot on that -oil. Gclioiina Wan looked upon ns tho place. wher all exlit ence of the bid forever ends. Joaeplius, the well know Jewish bistort in. In hl celebrated work, " Hie Antiquities of the Jews,'' has ex cellent commentaries on this subjnet. there Seems to be mure tban a probability that the present word hell (the Iiido-Gennanlo expres sion " bclla"). with ull it horrible Intimations of Are and brlmtone, originated lo the valley of Oe-hinom, near Jerusalem. Kiilsc your children In common asnie, teach them common sense and good morals, and a sure and certain decline In bell stock will be the result. L. II. B. BnooKLTM, Aug. U. Tbe Lav af the Tall Tewe .
