Tbe Jews of tbe United Static are filled with sincere pity for tbeir rjff.-nn brethren, and ut their threat meetiuR in Cin cinnati last July, a committee was appointed with a view to promtte their emigration tc this country. 1 be committee has reported ir favor if this scheme, and they gay: "la our opinion the true emancipation of the Jew CODMhts in tbe greater intuition of the spirit of manhood and self dependence, which can be bent done by encouraging tbe large master of Israelites dwelling in eastern and southern Earrpe to become farmers, aKricuIturibU and mechanics." litre lies tbe importance ol this movement, that it desires "to make th Hebrew a tiller of the soil and a dresser ot the vine, aa bis fathi ra were before him. The Jews are often r proaclie-d with thi ir de votion to trade, but that is not their fault. The persecutii;? ch-istiane generally de prived tbeoi of tbe power of holding lauds, and so drove them into trade. They then persecuted them again because they proved be'Ur business men than themselves. The idea is enteitaiued ol coiouizing the oppressed Jews of Europe in the United State. where their machooc Mill be revpected and tie same citizen-rights accorded to tLem as to tbe lest of the community.

WHAT IS TUB PLAGUE? The plague has been dehnt d as a septic lever, accompanied by nauses, vomiting sup ourating bubres or malignant pustule scat tered over d.fferent portions ot tha bedy, as, tor instance, on tbe neck, armpits or groins; x disease in which wild delirium alternates svitn profound coino, str'erou breathinp, and the involuntary vomiting ot bloody froth ir mucus; a di.eae in which the glandular -tructuret of the bdy are largely involved, and in which those victim that survive are nidousjy rcarreu and pitted as alter uinlig- unt sruall-pt x; a disease in wh th a mortal ity of sixty per cent, is considered light, and id wulcb the mortality bits otttu leachtd ninety per cent, of those attacked. 'Ihe predomiuett sjuip ojis ot the plagu?, as noted in the ootbreak at Morocco at the commencement or tne present century, are bus dtscrib- d by Dr. Jackson, an English physician: "It attacked some with sudden tnd vie shiV-ring, o'heis with delirium, succeeded by urquenchsble thirst. Cold water was eagerly resorted to by the unwary, tnd proved fatal to tboe who indulged in its momentary relief. Some had one, two or more buhjea, which formed and became as lirge as walnut in the coarse of the day ; others had a mm: ir number of caibuucle; thers hud bth buboes p.ni carbuncles." Dr. Jaukrf n gives the histories of some of l.is cas-8. We cull a fi'w choice extracts iroru tois horrible medical melange. "M. C. was suddenly aliai ked while fol lowicg his usual avocation, lie felt a ensa tion similar to the pricking of needki, and in the s tuations where such sensations were 'experienced fiery rett caibuccles at'terwaid .tpp-ared. llu died tne same day." "M. A. fell suddenly down on tbe s'riet, and was conveyed hom-j. Three carbuncles tod five bub'ifs appeared in tbe same day, in the groin, under the kner joint, in the arm pit at.d in the elbow, and he died three hour aitHrward." Dr. Jickfon's cock wes attacked and rush ed to the doctor's TvOai dior with his hair d sheveled and eye piotrudmg fir m their ockets screaming, "Open tha door for I am smitNn."

It is pretty accurately ascertained that the recent fatal explosion ot a thirty-eignt ton gun on board the British man-of war I bun derer" wa caused by the shot slipping for ward in the bore after it had been rammed home, thus allowing a too quick combustion of D3wder and creating a strain which no i?un in existence could rs-iot. A similar ac chfeot happened two ypars ago, v. hen two cine-pour d guns in tht R yal r!illery b'ew to pi ces. The fault in these cases was dis tint.t'y traced to the rammr, the bead of which was so near the iz) of the bore that, after ramming home tne charge, being drawn out quick:y it exhausted the air and drew the shut part of the way back. In sub sequent experiment it wa found tnat by dett handling the sbtt could be entirely drawn out of the gun by the rammer, the pattern of which ha consequently been al tered throughout the service.

THB FIB9T FOIJfT he reporter thought of waaas te tha fenuine- ce.s of the letter, the reporter not neiag ni yet sumuienuy acquainted wita Jdlss Daven port to be able to swear to her haodwritiag. A brief visit wa, therefere, paid to Mr. Spauldiog, of the Olyaspio, and the genuine ness ot toe letter tuily established in a very brief interview. The reporter next went to the Lindell nad 1114011CU wr air. unsweia, wno was teuna np ia room ov. ne responded promptly to thi reportorial tali, and sat diwn on a big trunk alongside the scribe, while the Utter read nitn a short-hand copy of thi laistly Ira grant espiitie. AT TUB LIXDBLL. At the conclusion ot the reading Mr. Oris wold said the whole matter was news to him as Miss Davenport bad preferred no claim of loss, to cis knowledge, donng her two weeks" stay at the ho el. "However," mid he, "let's go and trace this thing up." In a few seconds the reporter nad hotel proprietor were tripping down the servants tans toward the linen-room. Mrs. Bagwell a pleasant lady, who has charge ef that de partment, was mt on the landing, lir. (iris wold said: "Did Miss Davenport complain af losing anything while sne was here? "No, sir." "Did she say anything about losing any ewrnng or jewelry from her room?" "No, sir; but on the afternoon of thi day she left, Mr. Speiry (derk at th Linden) sent me a note, stating that Miss Davenport had lost no, not lost, misplaced a pair of earrings, and a-kiog me to have the room -earched lor them at once, which I did, aad iu cue oureau in tne bedroom we tonnn thm and a splendid pair of silk s'ikV.tiit. .' turn- tuouiumg nanoxercnietl. "What kind of earnage werethsy ' "Heavy jet earrings'" L.ke tneee you have ea ?" (nfrrriig t tb handsome pendanu in Mn. BagwiU'i ears). "Yes, sir; only lsrer." "You never hea-d of her losing any dia monds in any way?" "No, sir." "Nor of her losing any other property?" "Duly what I should j idge from the re msr to Katie, the girl who was iB th room -hen she received the black earring! we found." "What was that?" "She said she was very glad to get tha black earrings back, and was psrticularly nleaeed to get tbe stockings and handker chiefs she didn't know what sba would have done witnout them next day at Cincinnati but said the black earrings were not the ones she had lost." Mr. Griawold remarked that "Miirn Daven port was taking the matter very ooo lv tn h diamonds w rth a thousand dollars, and leave the betel wb. re she imagined them to have been lost, without making known her loa to some of the people around the hotel." Mrs. Bagwell. Mr. Griswold and tha rn. porter then repaired to room 365. f.aina- sut on the Sixth street i de, on toe fonrtfe loor. ueri tney were joined by iatie, the girl to whom Miss Davenport had remarked that the , earring! found were not the ones aha had lost. In answer to Mrs. Bagwell's aoMaxona. Katie told a very straight story, which cor roborated Mrs. BagweL's statement at all point. "Ni thing more here," said Mr. Griswold. "Let's go down and aee the clerks." THB COMYBRIATIOlr WITH TUB CLEKKg showed that Mr. Price, Fanny Davenport's leading man. had come to the desk a boot noon en tbe Saturday of her departure, and reported that a pair of earrings had been m iplaced by Mis Davtuiport. Wouldn't tbe clerk have a search made tor them in tbe room? Mr. Chassaing is eeeama te have been that giatlima nad net Mr. Saerry immediately wrote a brief note to Mrs. Bagwell, upon re ceipt of which that lady nt once commenced her search with tha result given abeve. It was farther ascertained that a earriage had that day been ordered for Miss Daven port at half past one o'clock, and that she didn't pay f. r supper, on the supposition that after the 'matinee she would have a lunch tt tnn theater nnd go direct to the depot. Sbe didn't, however, carry out this programme, as the subsequently returned to the hotl blJ received the black earrings, tandk rehiet nnd stotkiegs at the band of little Katie. Justat thi juncture Mr. Frost came to the front, and producing a little velvei-covered ring box said, "This wa tound in Mis Da venport's room after he left." "Oh," said Mr. Griswold, "that didn't hold earrings. There were no diamond ear rings in that." "Well, but she found her diamond err ring that ahe lost. I saw it," said Mr. Frrst. "Lost how? I niver heard of it." Mr. Frost proceeded: "Well, one night I reckon it was the Tuesday before she lett "KIM DATBHPORT AUD HER LKA.DIX8 UAH, Mr. Price, came in rather late, and went up the elevator to the room. Presently Mr. Price Price is the man whose association with Misi Davenport caused that tcan. mag mi Windsor, Ontario, and Detroit, you know his wife cams here shortly after he ar rived, nod he sent her right back came to the office said Miss Fanny bad lost one of her diamond ear-drops, he guessed either in get ting in or out of the carriage at the theater er at the hotel. I had heard the carriage drive around from the ladies' entrance, on Sixth street, to tbe main entrance, on the avenne, aad I had the carriage aearched, and aure enough, there was the diamond, large as life and worth five hundred doliars, Mr. Price said, as he held it up before my eyes. That's all the lost diamond I know anything about." What pnzxled everybody wsi the fact that Mils Davenpoit should wait some two weeks nnd more after losing her diamonds before making known- her loss in any specific shape, and that then she should write to Detective Hutbsing on the quiet, instead of notifying tbe hotel. It was suggested that perhaps Miss Dav enport's attention had been called to her loss alt the more strongly by reason of the little mishap that befell Miss Helen Tracy, now playing with Miss Davenport, and also a gnest at the Lindell a shirt time back. When Miss Tracy left the hotel she left be hind, in her room, two large trunks, full of silk dresses, etc., and during her absence the room was entered, the trucks opened, and their contents strtwn promiscuously over the floor. Thinking it possible that Miss Tracy had lost some jewels or other valuables, the hotel folks wrote her inquiring aa to the los of any, with intent to make thi same good, hut received word that nothing of value was missing. OTHER DIAHONDI. "Why," said Mr. Froei, "we have some very curious incidents occur here at times in regard to valuable property. I in writing bow to a railroad man named Lenaham, at Dubuque, Iowa, relative to a diamond that was found in room No. 164, just below Misi Davenport's, by Mr. J. G. Kelly, of New Yoik. Mr. K lly left here without reporting his find to us, but now, after some time, writes to say he will give up the diamond if we csn find the owner, but, of course, it may b quite a small diamond for a 1 I know. Miss Davenport's were both large and valu able." And that's as far as the investigation t.7 ached yeaterday. A prominent pawnbro (not Mr. ceyer) told the reporter he thought he could find out something about the mutter in a day or so, pending the re ceipt of which information the matter must remain a mystery, which possibly it will tax all Detective Huthsing'i energies to e !vu. When the gamblers have been heard from thi matter may possibly assume a more defi nite nhmnm F.LKCTKIC BKL.TM.
