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-

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.

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

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

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.

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
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
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 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.

The prose uf (J. Washington Cuilds, A. M.,
exhibits tbe s ime tenderly lachrymose charac

read and universally admired. Who but Cnn.DS,

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

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
"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've pre., d liloixt to my bjeom, In hope to lull her

"There was no one by
To aee tit r di",
Excepting ti'iii alone,
But well he anew

Hare are true grief and true poesy blended In
immortal verse) There Is no burlesquing such
balm as this.

We regard such accusations brought against

equanimity. When bis opponents resort to

The death of the Brooklyn boy. Gen.

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
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. All that baa been aald In pralss of
them waa, In my Judgment, deaerved. Let m

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
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
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.

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

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

Seems to be mure tban a probability that the
present word hell (the Iiido-Gennanlo expres

of Are and brlmtone, originated lo the valley of
Oe-hinom, near Jerusalem.
