the fatal stroke. . : ;

THE FEAST 07 ESTHEB.
Yosterday, the 13th day of the 12th Jewish month,
Ador (or this hoing a leap year, of tho 13th month
Yeadar), was tho fast of Eather; and to-day is
known .as Purim, or the Feast of Esther. Tho
institution of the festival is thus chronicled in
Esthor ix. 20 :
"And Mordecai wrote these things, and sent let?
ters unto all the Jews that werta in nil tho provinces
of tho King Ahasuerus, both nigh and fur. To
stablish this among them, that they should keep
the 14th day ot the month Adar. and tho 16th doy
of tho same yearly. As tho da??a wherein the Jews?
rcstod irom their enomics, and tho month which
was turned unto thom from sorrow to joy, and
from mourning into a good day: [ Yam Ton, "good
day,' is tho Hebrew expression for festival or holi?
day] that they should mako thom days of feasting
and joy, and of sending portions ono to anot'ior
and gifts to tho poor. And tho Jews undertook to
do as they had begun, and as Mordecai had writton
unto thom : Because Haman the son of Hammc
datha, tho Agagito, the enemy of all tho Jews, hod
devised against tho Jows to destroy thom, and bad
cast PUB, that is, the lot, to consumo them, and to
destroy them. ? ? ? 'Wherefore they called
these days F'?mat, after the name of Pur.""
Purim, the ur , by which this festival is uni?
versally known, we thus soe, signifies "tho feast of
lots," and is the anniversary of national deliver?
ance. It has evor : een a season of rejoicing with
the children of Israel, through all the centuries of
their dispersion and persecution. Tho loading j
features of the ceremonies connected with its cele?
bration are tho samo everywhere, however it may
differ in minor details. The day preceding Purim,
the fast of Esther, is one of the six regular fast
days of the Jewish year. It is rigidly observed by
all the devout and orthodox members of the con?
gregation of Israel, and neither meat nor drink is
tasted on that day, from tho rising of tho' sun
until after the stars have become visible to tho
naltcd oyo. In tho evening al] repair to the syna?
gogue to hear tho minister read the Megillah [the
Book of Esther], which is read in its original He?
brew, from a parchment scroll, in a chanting reci?
tative. The congregation, with their books before
them, follow the precentor, repeating certain
verses after him, according to a time honorod cus?
tom.
. Next morning [i. e. to-day] these services at tho
Synagogue are again repeated, and tho remainder
of the day is then spent in rejoicing. There is
not a ? member, perhaps, anywhere, of the house?
hold of ABBABAM who on this day sits down to a
poor dinner. This were against his principles.
.Mnner parties, balls and masquerades ere very
much in vogue on Purim, ivlindful of tho injunc?
tion of Holy Writ, each sends presents to his
neighbors, whether rich or poor, and with a deli
caoy worthy of all praise, and of imitation, tho
thoughtful and benevolent Jew takes this oppor?
tunity of sending substantial aid to him who is
lees blessed in this world's goods. On Purim this
may bo done under tho plea of "sending portions
ono to another."
Indeeds of charity, inactive, thoughtful, cal?
culating benevolence, the Jews not only preced
od every other people, but probably still main?
tain this pro-eminence. Benevolent societies for
various purposes date far back into thc Middle
Ages among many of tho Hebrew congregations
of Central Europe, long before the birth of tho
much vaunted nineteenth century philanthropy.
These charities, both private and public [i.e.
through agents or organizations], ore looked upon
as matters of course, and not heralded abroad as
munificent acts of "princely liberality."
... To the young people, tho masquerades are gen?
erally the most attractive part of tho customs con?
nected with Purim. It is the only day of tho
year when all of set purpose intent to bo merry
and gay. "Tho feasting and, gladness" ore prc
s cr ?bcd in the book of-EST HEB, but; we think, the
masquerades aro a super-addition derived t om the
Christian carnival, the two festivals very frequent?
ly being synchronous. Masquerades appear to
offer great attractions in time of general rejoicing,
OS Witnoaa ?Ho 4>*vn?.?l ii* Oc."l,?Uo Tlukvp,, tit?
saturnalia of Ancient Borne, and the mummeries of
Christmas in England. It was, therefore, natural
for the more hilarious of the younger Jews to en?
graft this custom, copied from the surrounding
nations, upon tho feast of 'ESTHER.
There is a story, we believe, of a Babbi who waa
so carried away in his zeal for the proper (?) ob?
servance of Purim, that he said (but this was long
ago, before Eather MATTHEW, and before the inven?
tion of whiskey,) that persons on Purim should
drink until they shall be unable to tell thc difference
between the blessing of MORDECAI and the curso of
HAMAN. But this custom, we aro pleased to be
able to say, is of those more honored in t :o
breach t oan in the observance ; and there is, per?
haps, no people on tho globe less addicted to
strong drink than are the Jews. Of course there
rall bo found individual exceptions, bul as a rule
our assertion holds true tho world over.
PROCEEDINGS Of CONGRESS.
In the Senate on Monday the credentials of Hon. 1
P. E. Thomas, Senator elect from Maryland, were
presented and a motion was made that he bo per- j
mittod to take the oath of office. Ihe credentials
were thon read,'and Mr. Howard moved that they
be referred to : tho Committee on the Judiciary.
A long discussion ensued, in,which a number of
members- participated, on the question of Mr. |
Thomas' lovalty to the Union. A full report of
the-debate will be found elsewhere. The further
consideration of the subject was finally postponed
until to-day.. In the debate, Messrs. Johnson,
Trumbull, Fessenden and Sainsbury advocated the
immediate admission of Mr. Thomas, and were op- j
posed by Messrs. Howard, Nye, Sherman, Steward .
and Comtess, who favored the motion to refer. The j
joint resolution authorizing the Secretary of War to
.turnish to Governor Brownlow, of Tennessee, arms
and equipments for twenty-five hundred militia was

Brownlow wanted these ar r's to protect Union man
from assassination. Mr. Patterson asked if "reb?
els" bad not been murdered? Mr. Fowler replied that
'.he hoped so-hoped some of these arms would
be used for that purpose 1" The resolution was
adopted-yeas thirty-five, nays five. 'Ihe Bul sup?
plementary to the Military Beconstruction Act was
then taken np, the question being on concurring

the House amendments was adopted, but the sec?
ond, which requires a majority of the registered

r SPEC! AX oRRESPONBENCE OF THE DAILY KBW8.1
?WAsrm.OTOK, March 18th, 1867.-There has been
no debate in tho Senate, where alone of the two
branches of Congress, the ethics of party finesse
is studied with my depth that, has brought in
such plain relief tho potty dissensions ranlding in
tho Radical breast, as tho discussion of Saturday
up?a the Supplementary Reconstruction BilL It
took until the toll of midnight to get a vote and
pass thc Bill, notwithstanding there were only two
Democrats present during the evening session.
Tho quibble was wholly confined to the Bopubli
can side of the chamber, and, in fact, the entire
proceeding had more the air of a Radical caucus
than aught concerning consimato statesmanship.
Tho fight was mainly waged between SUMNER, NYE,
DRAKE and HOWARD, on the one side, and TRUM?
BULL, MORTON, WILSON and FESSENDEN, on the
other hand.
Neither HOWARD or Nxs could see any reason
for haste in declaring an ultimatum looking to
final requirements of the Southern States, and
promising admittance to Congress whenever the
letter cf such propositions had been complied
with. Notwithstanding the fact of its being plain?
ly evident that ho wa? ready for no definite recon?
structive action, HOWARD became quite indignant
at Mr. TRUMBULL for speaking of him as an enemy
of ibo Bill under discussion, and demanded with
no little heat. " By what authority does the Sena?
tor from Illinois assert that I am an enemy of this
Bil1? ' ' and when TRUMBULL proceeded to show in
nie arrogant, biting way, how the nervous old
Michigander was nothincr, if not opposed to every
conceivable form of legislation that could come up,
HOWARD was too- lull for utterance, and hobbled
oil to a retiring room looking very red and
choleric.
As for HENRY WILSON, SUMNER'S colleague, he
was fairly driven "beside himself by some cold?
blooded remarks of NYE, who persistently nettled
"tho cobbler," until it was not in the nature even
of a long-suffering, recently converted proselyte to
the paths of peace, to stand more, and so WILSON
flared , up, and then, astonished at his own heat,
endeavored to retract-was met by another succes?
sion of taunts from NYE and BRAKS-which again
drove him to anger and loyal utterance. Being a
man of simple craft, loss of temper invariably suf?
fices to draw from WILSON confessions of con?
science, from which, in his own cooler moments,
be shrinks abashed, and not nnfrequently utterly
disclaims. And so it was in tho present instance.
Stung by tho castigation administered by NYE,
WILSON gave impetuous vent to a series of
prognostications, to the effect that delay in
reconstruction was fraught with danger to
the " country, but especially to tho Radical
party. Tho people, he said, . demandedV re?
construction o n some basis, and the Radicals
could not ro into tho Presidents 1 canvass in tho
year to como-four years after the war ended-and
acknowledge their failure to reconstruct the Gov?
ernment by keeping tho South out. If thoy failed
in their duty, the country would find leaders who
did not. WILSON continued to contend that tho
South would go heartily into the movement about
to bo inaugurated under thc Bilk and that tho Rad?
icals had a fair show for Controlling ail the States,
sa ve Virginia. He was confident of South Carolina
and Louisiana, and rebuked SUMNER for haggling
over minor points when the great object of bring?
ing in those States with Radical Senators was
within their grasp.
Tho next sensational feature of the debate was
SUMNER'S impassioned remark-unwittingly utter?
ed, it is truo-in which he denounced the States
about to be constructed under the Bill as "born of
thc bayonet." Several Senators sprang to their feet
upon the conclusion of the speech, and were about
to take the immaculate gentleman from the "Hub"
severely to task for such libel nunn ttoir ?OT-HT in?
tegrity, but fortunately BUCKAXSW, the cool, woll
versed Pennsylvania Senator, was awarded the
floor, and succeeded in making a striking and
adroit use of Mr. SUMNER'S characterization, osten?
sibly in that learned gentleman's defence, against
the evident ili-feeling ol his colleagues on the
j other sido of tho Chamber. SUMNER, he claimed,
I was the pioneer of his party, advocating a policy
for which he was ever denounced one
year by his friends, only to seo them support
it the next by their votes. He averred that SUM?
NER was perfectly correct in characterizing these
States as "born of the bayonet." Civil authority
did exist there. It protected life. It regulated
property; it performed folly all the fonctions of
government-as fully as elsewhere. Now, military
authority was reared above the civil. Neither pro- '
perty, nor liberty, nor life were secure, save by the
permit of a soldier; and this state of things was-to
exist until conditions were acted upon by the
South which were extremely repulsive, and could
only .be extorted by power. Verily, this was the
offspring of the bayonet, as. admitted ' by Mr.
Sum. E;:.
Tho Bill was then pass ed, and how goes to the
House for the appointment of a committee of con?
ference to consider the real nat of disagreement,
wbijh is, whether a majority of all registered votes,
or of all the votes east at an election, shall be re?
quisite to ratify the constitutions that may be
adopted. . . -VIDEX. . ;

Our New York Letter.
[FROM OTTS. REGULAR CORRESPONDENT. ]
NEW YORK, March 18.-St. Patrick's Bay in the
morning-and in the afternoon-was unduly cele?
brated yesterday..by-one of th? heaviest snow
storms we have experienced thia season, and in no
other manner, except in the churches,' for as it
fell on Sunday-as did the snow-and as the excise' "
law forbids indulgence rn the national beverage on' :
that day, ell of the festivities were postponed till
to-day. To-day, however, will due honors be done
to Ireland's Saint in a groud civic ana military dis?
play, in a grand banquet at the Astor House, in a '
grand banquet at Delmonico's, and in speech os, .
parties, balls, wniskey-punch-imbibingB, and a
tripping, in more senses than'one, of the light fan?
tastic Irish toe. The religious portion of the cele?
bration yesterday was particularly. imposing, and
in the Church of Immaculate Conception a most
beautiful and appropriate discourse- waa - delivered
by Archbishop MCCLUSKEY. The members of the
Temperance Society, who ara also members of the
church, wore the regalia of the order, and the .
discourse was listened' io with th?" marked atten?
tion it merited.. The procession to-day willbe
a much more imposing display than any similar
one on any former occasion, and the Archbishop
will ride at the hoad thereof in; compliance' with
the invitation tendered by the various associations.
The late news received from Ireland will tend to
heighten the interest of the entire celebration, and
tho Fenians wilt enjoy thc festivities aa they hove
never enjoyed them before.' People who are neither
Irishmen nor Fenians- air? beginning to feel and
express somo syrrmothy^forr the Greon-above-the
Bed cause, and so far as sympathy alone will , gp
the Fenian star here may bo said to be in ibo as?

Third Avenue Railroad Company. Tho old idea
that a railroad through Broadway would spoil the
beauty of this thoroughfare has been exploded
long ago, and nine-tenths of the people hore would
prefer riding np Broadway in a car than through
any of :tho other Avenues, or in the old-fashioned
stages that charge ten cents instead of six, and
crawl along at a snail's paco into the bargain.
Tho bridge across Broadway, at the corner of
Fulton streot, will soon be completed-probably in
about ten days hence-and, no doubt, in the courso
of a year at least a half dozen more will bo con?
structed at other points ; meanwhile at this point,
always the most .crowded spot in the city, there is
always a perfect jam caused by tho gaping crowd
of idle lookers-on who seem to havo naught to do
but to inspect ?t? public works without receiving
any compensatio-, for their trouble.

Tile KetomrtrneUon Debate In trio United
States Senate.
. [/Vom the National Intelligencer.]
The Supplemental Seeons traction Bill was taken
up in the Senate on Saturday, a little beforo 2, and
occupied that body till midnight. Tho Bill, as re?
ported by the Judiciary Committee of the Senate,
differed bat slightly from that which passed tho
House. The oath was modified BO as to exclude
the phrase "sincerely attached to the Govern?
ment," and some other unessential amendments
were offered. The debate in the Senate took a
wide sweep, embracing the whole question of re?
construction. A number of amendments were
offered and rejected. The question which elicited
the warmest discussion was whether tho voto
which ratified tho Constitution should be one re?
quiring a majority of all the registered voters or
of all the votes ast. Tho House Bill requires the
former, as did the BUI of the Judiciary Committee,
in th?-estimation of some of the members, but not
in that of others, and several votes were had upon
it, and any quantity of debate.
The alterations finally made wore by modifying
thc form of the oath, and by inserting the third
section, which provides for a vote being taken at
the election for delegates for and against the con?
vention, which shall noi be held it a majority op?
pose it, or if a majority of the registered voters
mil to vote upon" the question. The samo provi?
sion, requiring one-half the ? registered voters, is
applied to tho ratification.
Mr. Howard's amendment respecting the oath
specifies the condition of disfranchisement, in?
stead of referring in general .terms to the Act of
March 2d. Thistelicited a warm discussion, which
developed a marked diversity of opinion. Some
gentlemen thought the oath of but little conse?
quence. Some thought it unfair to ask a man to
swear to that to which yo a could apply no test,
such as a feeling of attachment'to the Union. Some
thought rebels would not be deterred by oaths,
and a lew agreed with Mr. Sumner in thinking
that the terms were not hay^n enough. Ho wan tea
tho affiant to swear to the indisolubUity of the
Union; that he would not countenance the Con?
federate debt, but uphold the national, and oppose
all discrimination of rights in regard to color. Mr.
Howard's amendment was lost in committee, bnt
adopted in the Sonate.
Tho question that was most persistently debated
was, whether a majority of the r gistered voters
or of tho votes cast should bo sufficient to call a
convention and ratify the constitution. Messrs.
Howard, Sumner, Njo, Fess m den and Co niling
contended for -the former. The speeches of
Messrs. Howard and Nye were especially bitter
against rebels. Accordingly to their statements,
the Southern people are not fit to live in a repub?
lican country, or, 'indeed, any other. They are
unworthy ot ggg^ffl^^^^^^r?tottija,ulT9i?P
vernal maasacrelng ' of the negroes-by Federal
bayonets. This is the plain English of their t Jk. j
Both were afraid of too hasty reconstruction.
Both thought tho negroes too ignorant and too !
slavish to be trusted to vote against their masters, j
Mr. Howard, too, had a great horror of minority j
governments. Strange to say, he protested
against a negro government, and was apprehen?
sive that these contumacious rebels would stay
away from the polls 'and leave the poor blacks,
who required guardians and are unfit for self
government, to make a .negro government.
Mr. Nye was afraid the masters would keep
thoir late slaves in leading. strings, -and . so carly
reconstruction would bo simply restoring rebels to
power.. So that both .sire, in fact, opposed to any
recon .traction for some time to come, though Mr.
Howard became quite indignant at Mr. Trumbull
for speaking of him as an enemy of tho Bill, and
demanded with no little heat, ." By what authority
does the Senator from Illinois assert ! thai I am an
enemy of the Bill ?r and when Mr. Trumbull show?
ed why he was, took: the chairman of Judiciary
oommitteo to task, lecturing him vehemently, prc?
claimed his independence, and announced with,
more force than modesty that he " recognized nu
superior, and would submit to no;dicta>or." The
very temper of the gentleman showed the truth of
the charge. So, too. Mr. Nye flared up at a re?
mark of .Mr. Wilson's' about charging him with
domayoguism, by appealing to the passions en?
gendered by the war, instead of pouring oil on the
waters, the Senator from .Nevada'proceeded to pnt
on the cap by indulging in tho very strain- of talk
which validated the charge.
Mr. Fessenden had considerable to say about
leaving tho people of the South to their own
choice. He was unwilling to compel them into the
Union. He was in favor of the military bill puro
and simple,'and did hot want it clogged with any
terms of reconstruction. Ha wanted them to have
no chance' of saying .they were forced m, but is .
they took their own way cut, he would have them
take their own way back, and lot Congress say
whether they would recognize that way or not. He
was perfectly willing to defend that position be?
fore his own constituency or any.other, and did
not share the apprehension of Mr. Morton and
others that the nation-would tire of the delay.
Mr. Colliding made...a couple of very forcible
speeches, one especially, insisting that the people
of the Soutli^shonldibe bound by tile work "d. rio,'
and unless a majority of them voted, they might
repudiate it as the act of the minority. : ; ?
M?D the other hand, the :-prop?sitioti was shown
np very thoroughly hy Messrs. Wilson, Morton,
Trumbull and Drake. . The two former insisted
that .delay, oi reconstruction-wo s fraught with
danger ito the country, .but especially to toe Radi?
cal party. .The people demanded reconstruction;
and Mr. Morton pertinently suggested that the
Radicals could not go into the Presidential can?
vass next year, four years alter the war was
ended, and acknowledge their failure to recon?
struct the Government by keeping the South cut.
If they failed in their duty, the country would
find loaders who . didn't. Mr. Wilson-contended;
that tho South would, go heartily into this
movement,1 and that the Radica s had a fnic
show for controlling all ',' the,..States except
Virginia.. He--was confident'of South Carolina
and' ' Louisiana, and rebuked -?ins colleague
for haggling, . over minor points when the
great object of bringing in the South wita Radi?
cai Senators wa?' in their 'grasp; Mr. Fowler inr
terrupted to. ask. a question. But it was more than
the Massachusetts &natorcouldstand.;. Ho warm?
ly assured him that hs was the last man: who
should b? found making any "opposition to. this
policy, for he (Mr. Wilson), had fought this san e
tight and had to meet the same arguments to get
mm (Mr.-Fowler) into toe'Senate. It was crash?
ing. Mri Fowlejrjrtoodcbnvictsd and ho longer in?
terrupted the impetuous .flow of the gentleman's
roseate prognostications.1 That "part of Mr. Wil?
son's speech relating to welcoming, tho Sooth waa
very ?ne, bat Mr. "'ivye'e. subsequent' partisan ap?
peal drove him into ! stating that he did not mean
rebels, bot negroes and loyalists. The argument
that to require a majority of the registered .voters
to count tue absentees ought to bo conclusive.
Mr. TnunbuU had great'd?no?lty in keeping
his frie ada 'from loading .down tho Bill .wi th .amend?
ments relating to tho details, and twice they were
tacked on, but -removed on reconsideration. He
insisted that the whole question of detail was left
to the commanding general, who m~st devise and
employ his own "machinery, f Ho can use the exist?
ing electron laws', adapting "them to the changes
required by tho act of Congress, bat he protested
repeatedly Against any effort to convert this into
an election law,.declaring that if-that was tho in?
tention of tba Senate, the Bill must be referred,
and ample time be given to the committee. \, .
& Perhaps the most interesting part bf the dis?
cussion grew out of the'proposition of Hr. 8um
-ior to require each State to establish and main
j tain a system of common schools. It was contended
-fay the Senator that they hod power to lay-down
- any conditions jj of reconstractio ? - they J thought
wisp, and-that sufirage without knowledge waa
bootless, *and he .read a tOassic eulogy on educa?
tion. In the course of his remarks,he clonouneed
tho States to be created under this bill as "born of
[ the bayonet." This expression seemed particularly
obnoxious to bis fri ends-we suppose because they
secretly acknowledged its truth. Several Senators
sprang to their. foot on the conclusion-of his
speech, oad Mr. IBrelinghuvMOn was recognized.
He pretested against such an idea going forth to
the country. It was grossly unjust, and the gentle?
man ingeniously sought to evado ito force by ex?
plaining that the governments to bo ?zested would
bo the work of the people. ~'".Y - , - -
Mr. Copnesji gnnmfolly-itipnl^m^l itf nnH .nw
minded the Senator that California sprang into
the Union from a.'mmtaryxsrdef.but ho forgot to
?tate that <2aiifonna had no conditions affixed to
her comi-g, with the alternativo of acceptiag tbam
or being kept under the bayonet.
Mr. btewart protested against anv man's voting
for a Bill and denounci g. it" He would vote
against a Bul or he would def ou d it, and he donned
.tuat.it was. growly unfair to denoanco a measure
and get the credit tor standing on a higher eleva?
tion-than oUifiTs. while really supporting it with
his vote,' They would bo met on the stomp with
this speech of the Senator, and it waairaju.it to
his friends,
Mr. Hendricks denied the power of Congress to
instituto governments for the South, or to pre?
scribe any other condition than those imposed by
the Constitution. Ho very briefly, but forcibly
and conclusively, destroyed all the foundation of
Mr". Sumner's argument on the pow er of Congress
to prescribe governments for the S?rth, which he
derived from necessity, from military govern?
ments, and from that clause in tho Constitution
guaranteeing a republican government. Ncoessity
knows no law, but we were governed by a Consti?
tution, and have no powers save what wore con?
ferred. There is no war, and the gentleman
knows it. Thero was no excuse, thon, for appeal
mg to the war power; but if there was, that did not
justify such interference with the rights of Ameri?
can citizens. Governments already existed in the
South; they are republican in form, and there is
not tho shadow of an excuso for congressional in?
terference.
Mr. Buckalow made a very striking and adroit j
argument, ostensibly in defence of Mr. Sumner,
who,, he claimed, was the pioneer of the party, ad- !
vocatinfflfc policy for which he was denounced this ?
year by his friends, only to support it the next by
their votes. Ho claimed, too, that the Senator was
gerfectly correct in characterizing these States as
om of tho bayonet. Civil authority did exist I
there. It protected life. It r?K?l&ted rroperty; it
performed fully all the functions of government
as fully as elsewhere. Now military authority was
reared above the civil. Noitlier property nor lib?
erty nor life were secure, save by the permit of a
soldier; end this state of things was to exist until
conditions were acted upon by the South which
j wero extremely repulsivo, nnrl nmi' miy v? ex?
torted by power.
Mr. Sumner's proposition was hat by a tie vote.
Ono point of this debate ?ve must reserve, as we
havo not space to do it justice. We refer to the
question whether Congress is committed at all to a {
pl"n of reconstruction by the act of March 2d of i
the last Congress. On this the difference of opin?
ion was very decided.
Thc bill now coes to tho House, and it is difficult ;
to sa in what shape it will come out, and there is
a marked difference between the two Houses on the ,
question whether a majority of all the registered
voters, or of all the votes cast at the election, shall
be requisite to ratify tho constitutions that may be
adopted._
FBOST AND ICE.-On Sunday morning there was
ice and a thin frozen crust on lat ly ploughed I
ground-we saw both; and on Monday morning
thero was a heavy white frost. No doubt some of
thc fruit was kill od; and more of it injured-but
we still hope that there will be a sufficiency of the
early-blooming fruit, such as peaches and plums.
It is hardly probable that the applo crop has yet
been much injured. All tender garden vegetation,
not specially protected, must have suffered.
Yesterday was milder, and we trust that thero
will bo littlo or no frost this morning.

- I, have always recommended tho Faber -Polygraae ;
Lead Pencils as tho only pencils fitted for both ornamen?
tal ana' mathematical drawing; but, after a thorough
trial of'the atif*"*" Pot/grade Lead Pend?a, man
tmelnred by the American Leed Pencil Company, New
York, I find them superior to any pencil in use, even to
Hie Faber or tho old English Cumberland Lead Pencil,
Niing a superior pencil for sketching, ornamental and
moclianiial drawiii?. and all tho ordinary wea ot> lead
pened... ? '
These pencils are very finely graded aad have a very
smooth lead; even the ?oftest pencils hold tho point well ;
thar ara all that can be desired In ft penciL itMveanio
jpoat rjlfaanrrr tft Ml iMl itt asaltee ktBtkit?n that ttfeat
will no long?r be compelled to depend upon Germany or
any other loreign market for pencils.
