Perhaps one of the most notable events in recent history was tbe cordial invitation extended by Spain to the persecuted Jews of Russia to come and settle in the land of his most catholic majesty. It Is quite probable that these Hebrews are the descendants of tbe identical Jews expelled from Spain during tbe ages of intoler ance which ruled that kingdom, in whiob. the Jew was as much hated as the Moor. Spain, whicb bas so mercilessly persecuted the Jews, now probably feels like entering _ against a like persec u tlon of tbe Hebrews iv Morocco. The Jews of Morocco represent one or tbe most gifted and distin cuished sections of tbe Israelite raoe. They speak Arabic, and they ara, to a large extent, descended from those Spanish Hebrews wbo contributed so much to the power and lustre of tbe Arab and Moorish rale in tbe Peninsula. Some of the brightest names oonnected with the sobools ot Arabian soience and learning are tbe names of Jews, ■nd members of the same nation ality not only figured in tbe coun olla or the Moslem Princes, but, •fter the occupation of Andalusia, held posts of tbe highest trust un der some of the Castilian Kings. It Wm not until after the conquest of Grenada tbat a system of persecu tion was adopted in Castile, and the Jews wbo were banished at tbat epoclr, for tbe most part, joined the Moslem exiles in seek ing a refuge across tbe Straits of Gibraltar. They had the best of reasons for ezpeeting kind treat ment in Morocco, for tbe same tol erant policy pursued by tbe Moors In Spain had heretofore been fol lowed by the rulers of that country. Up to a certain date, indeed, the history of Islam in western Afrioa •nd in the Iberian Peninsula, bad presented a close parallel. Tbe Edrisltee, who reigned at Fez, like tbe Omylad Caliphs of Cordova, were a dynasty of tbe purest Ara bian stock, and tbe Almoravides and Almobades, wbo ruled in suc oession at Morocco, were tbe same resolute reformers wbo had given a new lease of life to tbe Moslem power In Spain. Under these oir eumstances it was natural tbat the Spanish Jews should seek a new home In Africa, and tbere is no doubt that the accession of these •migrants gave • great impulse to commercial and industrial activi ties, and heightened for a time tbe prestige of tbe universities at Faz •nd Morocco. Since the beginning of tbe sev enteenth century, however, Mo rocco bas been crushed by con tinual elvil wars, and by the eztor- lions and oppressions which are tbe fruit of sucb a state of things. Id tbe desperate struggle of Arab, Berber, and Moorism elements for supremacy, tbe whole political and ■octal structure has been disinte grated, and every healthful fea ture of tbe old civilization has been destroyed or has decayed. From this war of racss the Jews have beld aloof, persevering as best tbey could in tbeir peaceful avoca tions, and as a consequence they bave been made tbe victims of each race by turns. Tbe fact tbat not only the whole internal com jmerce of tbe country, but the mak ing of jewelry and the work in Mil- ver and copper, are wholly in the hands of tbe jews, has marked them out as special objects of plun der. With a view too, of concili ating publlo opinion and excusing tbeir own extortions, tbe rulers bave fostered religious prejudice among tbe lower class of Moslems and connived at explosive out breaks of intolerance. ~ The result la that nowhere, at any period of history, has the lot of the Hebrew been so unspeakably wretched as Hie In tbe rery oountry which his ancestors did to much to strengthen Md glorify under preceding dynasties. suring the Tunisian expedition •f the French Spain bas bad her •yee fixed jealously upon Morooco. Her generals recall tbe exploits in .that country of Field Marshal " CDonnell, and tbey thirst for nsw military glory and conquest. It would be one of the marvelous de velopments of the nineteenth cen- tatjr If Spain's new born interest tB the Jews should lead her to , ac pause their cause both at home !Md in Moroono. Should war arise between tba two countries it msy be railed upon that, in tbe oppress ed Israelites, tho Christian nation weald floa staunch allies. I A Polish periodical gives inter esting statistics oonnected witb tbe merciless repression of tbe insur rection of 1883-64 by the Czar's lieutenants. From these data, whicb appear to bave been com piled very carefully and dispassion ately, It appears that witbin tbs space of two years 83,434 Poles were condemned to perpetual expatria tion aud transported to Siberia or to other outlying provinces of the Russian Empire. Above 10,000 more contrived tv effect tbeir escape to foreign countries, but tbe greater number of these stifle red the loss of their entire property, confiscated by tbe State, and have abandoned all bope of ever return ing to tbeir native land. Three hundred and sixty patriots were banged in cold blood by tbeir cap tors. Pecuniary mulcts lo the amount of 82,000,000 roubles were levied upon the "Vistula prov inces," and 2700 estates were se questrated, the majority of them being subsequently conferred by the Czar upon Russian noblemen fortunate enough to merit bis spe cial favor. Public libtaries were eitber deetroyed by Muravieff's or ders, or deprived of the more valu able portions of their contents, which were conveyed out of the country, and distributed among the State libraries iv St. Peters burg, Moscow, Kief, und other great Russian cities. The outrages committed upon defenceless women and ecclessiastics are also tabulated in these returns, and constitute one of the most revolting records of modern history, "The Falls of Niagara were dry for a whole day," raid the Rev. Dr. T. B. Fuller, of Hamilton, On tario, in a recent leoture. The ac curacy of the story was questioned, aud now the clergyman publishes the sworn statements of several person tbat they saw tbe phenom enon. Tbey say that it ocourred on March 31, 1848. At 5 o'clock in the morning so little water was dribbling over, tliat a man aud his daughter walked half way across from tbe Canadian shore, near tbe edge of the precipice. The girl stuck a pole iuto a crevice of tbe rock, and left a handkerchief flying from the top. Not content with this feat, they went half a mile above the Fall, and rode part way across the bed of the river in a wagon. Others did similar things. The jagged rocks at tbe bottom be low tbe Falls were exposed. This strange condition lasted until nightfall, wbeu the stream began rapidly to swell, aud before morn ing was as large as usual. Dr. Ful lei's theory is as follows: "Tbe winds had been blowing down Lake Erie, which is only about thirty feet deep, aud rushing a great deal of tbe water from it over tbe Falls; it then suddenly changed, and blew tbis little water (compar atively speaking) up to the western portion of the lake; at this junc ture the ice on Lake Erie, wbicb had been broken up by these high winds, got jammed iv the river be tweeu Buffalo aud the Canada side, and formed a dam which kept back the waters of Lake Erie."

Tae aiaie Prison Investigation— atwrtMueT Olseloeuree. Ban Francisco, August 3d.—At the meeting this morning of the State Prison Investigation Com mission, William Neilson gave by request bis views on tbe prison management. Before entering upon tbe broad question of prison management, be made some start ling statements on Informatien fur nished bim and what be bad him self observed of the San Quentin prison. He stated that gambling, liquor drinking, and tbe vilest of corrupt and immoral practices were constantly going on and permitted witbin the prison walls. Tbe facts were not known to the Warden, but they were none tbe less in dulged in. He invited i he Com mission to go with bim to San Quentin aud verify the truth of those statements. He then de nounced tbe present prison system and contrasted it with tbat of Ureal Britain, Australia and other countries. He made several sug gestions which he submitted to tbe Commission, strongly advising the adoption of the "silent" system. The afternoon was spent in execu tive session, wherein tbe verdict as to certain specific charges was dis cussed. The Commission will to morrow inspect the prison at San Quentin and on Monday next in spect tbe prison at Kolsom. The Commissiou bas divided certain labors and will act separately in certain duties of inspection. Trueaee metroyerl by Plre. Tkuck.ee, August 3d.—A fire broke out last night in a dance bouse on Jibboom street, wblch raged throughout tbe night and is still burning, though now under control, having destroyed every business house in town except three and many residences. The loss is estimated at $350,000. Among tbe heaviest losers are P. Sheridan, $12,000; N. E, Burck halter & Co., $10,000; J. J. Adolpb, $21,000; F. Rabel, $10,000; J. G. Levisou & Co., $25,010; Andy Johnson, $12,000; H. Davis, $10,000: 8. McKay, $20 OlJO; G. W. Harri son, $10,000; Udd Fellows Hall, $10,000. The remainder of the town was saved witb great difflcul -10, the water supply being sbort. The losers show commendable pluck and rebuilding bas already begun. Tbe new town will be of more substantial construction than that destroyed. The insurance will probably aggregate about one third of tbe loss. Ail tbe derni monde are houseless and the pre vailing opinion favors allowing them to remain so, with thd alter native of seeking other localities. Furll.er «>r 11.0 Xrauk.. tlrr. Tbuckee, Augusta.—The char red bones of some peisou unknown were found lv the debris of tbe fire. Besides tbis no loss of life is report ed. Front street is filled with tbe temporary buildings of those burned out. Lumber is constantly arriving for new buildings. Large parties from Reno and neighboring towns bavo come to labor aud none are turued away. Tramps have fiockod tothe place in large num bers. It was rumored tbat the "60," which once gave Truckee notoriety throughout the land, was to be reorganized for the purpose of keeping tlie demi-monde from lo cating in tbeiroldquarters. Should the society be formed, the fact will only have to be known to produce tbe desited effect. 6:30 P. M —The tire bas been quenched about Odd Fellows' Hall. The interior of the building is in good condition. EASTERN. nn- t*r.sl<leul'a Uou.lllloii Executive Mansion, August 3d, 7P. M.—Eveniug official bul letin— The President passed a very satisfactory day. The wound con tinues to do well. He takes an adequate quantity of nourishment and appears better than at any time siuce he was injured. Tbe rise in temperature this afternoon was slight. At present his pulse is 102, temperature 99, respiration 19. RESUSCITATING THE DROWNED. Rules ot the Mew fork Board of Health. Remember tbat tbe patient must be treated instantly and on tbe spot where rescued. He must be freely exposed to the open air; loosen the clothing so as to freely expose the neck and chest. All persons uot needed for saving him should avoid crowding about. Let tbe throat and mouth be cleansed by placiug the patient gently facs downward, with one of his wrists under his forehead. Quickly wipe and cieauee the mouth, and if the patieut does not breathe,- immedi ately begin the following move ments: Place the patient on hla back, with shoulders raised aud support ed easily on a folded coat or some kind of pillow. Let one person, at the patient's head, grasp the tongue gently and firmly witb his finders, covered witb a bit of handkerchief, and draw it out beyond the lips; then either bold it or press the uuder jaw (chin) up so as to retain the tongue protruding from the mouth, but it is better to hold It in that position with the hand. Raise the patient's extended arms upward to the sides of bis head, aud then pull them steadily, firmly, slowly, outward. Next turn down the elbows by the pa tient's sides and bring the arms closely and firmly across the pit of tbe stomach, ami press tbem and tbe sides and front of the chest gently but strongly for a moment, then quickly begin to repeat tbe first movement. Let these two movements be made very deliber ately and without casing until the patient Lreatbes, and let the two movements be repeated about twelve or fifteen times, remember- Ing that thoroughly to fill tbe lungs with air Is the object of the first or upward and outward move ment, ami to ezpsl as much air ac possible is the object of the second or downward motion and pressure. The artificial respiration Bbnuid be steadily kept up for forty minutes or more when tbe patient appears not to breathe; and, after tbe na tural breathing begins, let the same motion be very gently con tinued, and let the proper stimu lants be given io tbe intervals. If help and blankets are at hand bave the body stripped and wrapped in blankets, but do not allow the movements to be stopped. By standers can supply dry clothing. The assistants should briskly rub the feet and legs, pressing tbem firmly and robbing upward, while the movements of the arms and ebest are going on. Apply harts born or a feather witbin the nos trils occasionally, or sprinkle or lightly dasb cold water upon the face and neck. The legs and feet may be rubbed aud wrapped in hot blaukets, if blue or cold, or if the weather is cold. When the patient begins to breathe give brandy by tbe tea spoonful, or hot sling two or three times a minute, until the beating of the pulse van be felt at tbe wrist, but be careful not to give more of the stimulant than Is necessary, Warmth should be kept up iv the feet and legs, and, as soon as the patient breatbeß naturally, let him be carefully removed to a house, and be pluood in bed under medical care. Life in High Altitudes. The greatest height to whicb men have ever mounted is about five and a half miles above the spa level, and tbe balloonists who ven tured on that experiment were very glad to come down. Short as tbeir stay in the upper regions was tbey were almost frozen and al most suffocated. Tbe cold so be numbed their hands that, had they not taken the precaution (o carry with them chemicals for the pro duction of a little artificial heat tbey would have become helpless and lost their lives from inability to pull a rope aud let out tbe gas of tbeir alr-sbip. The air which they breathed was too thin to sup port life, and they felt all the sen sations of partial strangling or drowning. Of course auy labor at such a height was impossible. The census shows that the oleva tion at which men can live and work to advantage, and whicb they therefore generally choose, is a very low one. The average height of the Uuited States above tbe sea level is about 2,600 feet, but tbe mean elevation of the pop ulation is only about 700 feet. A hight of 10,000 feet Is considerably less tban two miles, yet of all tbe 60,000 000 of people iv our country only 26,400 live at that elevation. Mot only men, but other ani mals and plants as well, find tbe struggle fur existence harder as tbey rise higher. As plants and animals diminish in number, the means of supporting human life rapidly decrease, so that tbe up ward growth of the population, so to speak, is cbeolted long before the cold becomes too severe to be endured or tbe air too thin for breathing. The bulk of tbe little band wbo reach a height of ten thousand feet are miners, aud oould bj nothing else. More than Ibree-fourtbs of tbe whole population choose to live at less than one thousand feet, or considerably less than one - fifth of a mile above lbs sea, and only three per cent, of the inhabitants make tbeir homes at a height of two thousand feet. If it were pos sible to walk upward from the earth as readily as upon its surface, au ordinary pedestrian in half an hour could paes tbe limit at which human life can he permanently maintained, and in little more tban an tiour be would reach a point where it could uot exist at all. If tbe builders of Bibel had ever scaled the mountains beyond their native plain no miracle would have been required to convince them tbat tbeir Impious enterprise was a waste of labor. NEW TO-DAY.
