the inconoclasts who came to occupy
I the places deserted by the *' first fam- c
ilies" formerly directing public opin- t
ion, lnt who were carried into the t
abyss of rebellion by the first wave
of secession that swept over this city 1
Southward in 1860-61. Its alumni is
large, considering the disadvantages
it had for years to contend against,
and its enrriculum!,iSit much in
ferior to the older and more favored
colleges. While specially designed
( to afford opportunities for a liberal I
education to those excluded by pre- I
t judice or supposed expediency from
other stbhdol, it makes no discrimina -

nationality, sex, " color or previous

- Founded upon what has been given
to tile public relative to Judge Hil

the Grand Union Hotel, Saratoga,
there is an almost universal expies

gentleman's birth was delayed too
long by just about two centuries, and
also a very general concuv rence in the
opinion that it is altogether too late
in the nineteenth century to attempt
to justify the bigotry and intolerance
exhibited towards Mr. Seligman ; and
unless Judge Hilton has more valid
reasons, to be openly stated instead
of being vaguely intimated, for what
appears a gratuitous insult offered to
placate a few nabobs, it is predicted

There is no question that the silver
discussion has created some alarm
among foreign holders of American

as follows: There is no coin issued or

value, fixed by laws in force on the
14th of July, 1870, when the bonds
were authorized; and as the govern

of these bonds in that coin, the See
retary gives it as his opinion that there
will be no legislation or other action
had by which they will be made re
deemable, or their interest payable,
in coin of less value than that exist

The Temperance Movement Ini
The New Orleans 1)einocrct, under
this heading, relates that "" within
the past month unimerous Temperaice
Societies have been organized in
Franklin, Morehouse, Lincoln, Union, i
Iberia, St. Maay, etc." We are sorry
to say that as to Franklin, at least,
this statement of our contemiporary
is incorrect. We ai e glad that we
can say, however, that the number of
saloons in our little town has de
cieased, within the last two years,
from three and four, to only one. Also
that our parish officers are~all temper
ate men, and, with one exception, all
belong to the .order of U. F. of T.
Whether or not this cause is " the out
growth of puritanism," we are not
ahble to -say ; but one thing we do
know, and that is, that it has had a
good effect upon the morals of the
country wherever it has prevailed.
We have for some time favoreid
this cause, but have never belonged
to the proscriptive wing of the order,
and therefore do not believe in the
passage (of any law to proliihiit or
restrict the sale of intoxicating liquors.
We think that public opinion ought
to regulate this matter, and that the
grand aim of temperance people
should be, to so edcuate this great
power that tny decemt man would he

- Jews at the Ihotels-The Tweed I
NEw YORK, June 23, 1877. a
a The great sensation in New York, e
a just now,is the action of Judge Hilton, a
t the representative of the Stewart es- t
a tate, in excluding Jews from the s
I Grand Union Hotel at Saratoga. The
1 I Grand Union is the largest summer 1
1 hotel in the world, and the most ex- i
t elusive. Joseph Seligman, one of the I
o wealthiest bankers in this city, has, t
a for some years, lived at the Grand I
1 Union, with his family, during the F
a sunmner months, and he applied last
week for suitable apartments for this i
season. Much to Mr. Seligman's dis- I
gust, the clerk informed him that he a
- could not have rooms, and when asked 4
n for a reason said that Judge Hilton
n had instructed him to refuse all Jews.
e To say that there was a storm would i
a' be to put it very mildly. le it known
lthat the Jews are iumerous and enor
mnonsly wealthy in New York. They
- are the largest bankers and among the
y largest merchants, and they control
u" the theatrical and operatic business.
h There was a buzzing among them, and
:r a newspaper war of vast dimensions
- was the result. Judge Hilton gave as
d his reason for his action that any hotel
ie was ruined the moment it became
is known as a Jew house, for the reason
1- that the Jens are all loud, coarse, ob
te trusive and filthy. He said they would
c- get rooms at the lowest possible rates,
re and smuggle into them all their viai
1.1 tors that they were filthy in their
e- habits, and that they swarm in such
e, niimbersus to monopolize the piazzas;
t- that in so public a place as a hotel
r- they had privileges as guests which
of gave them license to be disagreeable
c to other people ; that their women
at were gross, vulgar and over-lressed
to in short, he woult'ut have then, about
or at anyvprice. Otl the other hand, the
Jews i:isist that they ame as quiet and
.s gentlemanly as any other class, that
V- they pay their bills and have a right
It to all accommodations that other peo
lie pie have. And the Jews of the United
g, States are withdrawing their trade
its from Stewart's, and there is a war ri
ire valing in bitterness the one raging in
Europe. It is true that there are a
class of Jews of the kind Judge Hilton t.
describes. Many a banker now worth l
his millions and living in gorgeous ,,
style, came into the city with his pack w
on his back, and made his commence- s1
n.ent in the alleys and by-ways. di
Matanners don't come with money, and s,
it is not to be expected that such a is
man should possess all the graces of gi
good society. His daughtets, dress t~
H.-y ever .,o .vcll, will be vulgar, and jj
his sons, no matter how large the dia- no
mtuds they wear, will be nothing but fl
snobs. Such ate doubtless. disagrees- st
ble at hotels, and are not to be desired, ft
and it is true that the Jews have more ti
than their share of them. But it is tl
true, on the other hand, that there are f
thousands of Jews who have both tI
wealth and manners, and who are as a
well groitded in all that mnakes the t,
gentlemta or lady as anybody. Hilton
made a mistake in rejecting the Jews a
as a iace. T[le people will not brook
a line so drawn. Class distinc
tions are out of place in this country,
and fotty Judge Hiltons with forty 1
times the Stewart estate back of them, t
can not make them. It will kill the
trade of the Stewart establishment, r
and will hurt the Grand Union Hotel. c
Townsend, Tweed's Attorney, pub
lishes a tremendous artaigutoent of a
Fairchild, the Attorney General.
Townsend claims that Fairchild de
ceived Tweed, by promising to let
him go if he would make a clean
breast of it ; that Tweed did so protm
ise aid stood ready to give informa- I
tion that would have saved the State
two millions, and id'ould have brought 1
the whole gang to justice ; but that
Fairchild, in the interest of John Kelly
and tosmirch the reputation of certain
men, used such portions of what
Tweed confided tohitm as would serve
his purpose, and then refused to let
himo 'i on the score that his testimony
is worth nothing. The true inward
test of it all is thatI Tweed i1 about as
honest as a thousand ttore who are itt
oth I parties. 'lTheje is a vet % o ide
spread dhead of seeing him on the
stand, which is probably the reason
why he is kept iu duress. Tiere are
Republicans who took Tweed's money ]
-in fact his gigantic frauds could not
have been cariied out without help
from the Republican party-and they
are shaking in their shoes. There are f
plenty of Democrats whom the public
esteem and who are spotted with it, C
and there is a wide-sprehd uneasiness
that Tweed, when he does get on the
stand, will prove a bull in a china shop
and, kick over a great many very
pretty kettles of fish. No one knows
whom the old man will strike when
he gets within striking distance, and
there are hundreds who do not want
him to have the chance to hit. As it
stands, the prosecution has been an 4
absurd farce. No one has been pun
ished but Tweed, and he is no worse
than the rest of them. Sweeney gets
off by paying back about a twentieth
of what he stole, and Ingersoll was i
out within a few weeks of the time he
went in, and the rest of the gang have
never been hurt a particle. The pros
ecutions have cost tlhe city four times
as much as was ever realized from the
thieves by restitution, and so absurd
has it become that the moral effect
of Tweed's imprisonment is gone, for,
owing to Fairchild's treatment of the
case and the skillful manipulation of
his attorneys, Tweed is now looked
upon as a martyr, and is more pitied
than ,blamed. It is a sorry ending.
I New York is in as bad hands to day
as it was when Tweed reigned, and is
entering upon another term of fraud
The city is stirred up on the silver
question. New York is inflexibly op
posed to the remoiietizing of silver,
and the businesas world stigmatizes
the making silver a legal tender as
only another form of inflation.
Debts due other countries can no
more be paid in silver, than they can
in greenbacks, and the production is
so enurmous that a still further de
cline is considered certain. Thlecity
will fight it to the death, and gold is
the only standard that is acceptable;
every member from the citV wiIlb.
instructed to favor no financial sche.ne
that looks to making any thing but
gold the standard of values.
The cleansing of the Custom-House
is going on satisfactorily. The old
suckers are mostly cleaned out and
a class of men who are willing to
work for the government are in their
places, The Post-Office, never so bad
as the Custom-House, for skilled men Sv
were necessary there, is also being
shorn of many men, and a stricter di
discipline and more efficiency in the
service is being had. In short, there so
is a cleaning up all round, which is as $i
gratifying as it was unexpected. The
people have discovered that President Oh
Hayes was in dead earnest in the th
matter of civil service reform, and
they rejoice exceedingly. But it bi
strikes the old bummers with awful
force. Those who have already lost K
their heads fill the bar-rooms with of
their lamentations. It is a bad time
for office-holders, who depend upon 5(
the strength of " our member." " Our
member " isn't as great a man as he MI
was once. S
The merchants report a better feel- t
ing among the business melt of the u
South. As absurd as was the howl ti
about military occupation, the ro- k
moval of the troops from the South
did have some effect in stimulating
trade in that section. The Southern a
people have now a certainty of a
policy, and they can make their cal- '
cnlations accordingly. The sentiment C
in. the city is overwhelmingly in fa- I:
vor of the Presdent among men of
f all parties who have any thiug to risk, t
I. and he is growing in strength every
day. PIETRO. t
