CHRiISI' SENTENCE OF DEATH.
An Alleged Copy of the Most Memorable Judicial Sentence Ever Pronounced. The following is a copy of the most me morable judicial sentence which has ever been pronounced in the annals of the world, namely, that of death against the Savior, with the remarks which the Journal LeDroit has collected, and the knowledge of which must be interesting in the highest degree to every Christian. It is word for word as fol lows : Sentence pronounced by Pontius Pilate, intendant of the Lower Province of Galilee, that Jesus of Nazareth shall suffer death by the cross. In the,;sventeenth year of the reign of the Emleror Tiberius, and on the twenty fourth day of the month of March, in the most holy City of Jerusalem, during the pon tificate of Annas and Caiaphas. Pontius Pilate, intendant of the Province of Lower Galilee, sitting to judgement in the Presidential seat of the Praetors, sen tences Jesus of Nazareth to death on a cross between two robbers, as the numerous and notorious testimonials of the people prove. 1. Jesus is a misleader. 2. He has excited the people to sedition. :3 He is an enemy to the law. 4. He calls himself son of God. 5. He calls himself, falsely, the King of Israel. ti He went into the temple followed by a multitude carrying palms in their hands. Orders from the first centurion, Quirrillis Cornelius, to bring him to the place of ex ecution. Forbids all persons, rich or poor, to prevent the execution of Jesus. The witnesses who have signed the execu tion of Jesus are : I. Daniel Robani, Pharisee. 2. Jo)hn Zorababel. ., Raphael Robani. 4. Capet. Je us Is to be taken out of Jerusalem through the gates of Tournes. This sentence is engraved on a plate of brass, in the Hebrew language, and on its side are the following words: "A similar plate hias been sent to each tribe," It was discovered in the year of 1280, in the City of Aquilia, in the Kindom of Naples, by a search for Roman antiquities, and remained there until it was found by a Commission ot Arts in the French army in Italy. Up to t e time of the campaign in Southern Italy it wrs reserved in the sacristy of the Carthusians, near Naples, where it was kept in a box of ebony. Since then the relic has been kept in the Chapel of Casert. The Carthusian·, obtained, by their petitions, that the plate might be kept by them, which was an ac knowledgement of the sacrifices which they made for the French army. The French translation was made literally by members of the Commission of Arts. Dennon had a fac simile of the plate engraved, which was bought by Lord Howard, on the sale of his Cal iuet, for 2,890 francs. There seem to be no historical doubts as to the authenticity of this. The reasons of the sentence corres pond exactly with those of the Gospel. ------------,ml---I ~QI) lslt.--4mm.. the Electric Light in Deep Water. [Baltimore American.] Mysterious flashes of lights, far-reaching and brilliant, from the direction of the har bor, over the city and against its most lofty buildings, and again down along the water in one direction or another, excited no little comment Thursday night. The startling il luminations were simply the result of one of a number of proposea experiments with the electric light in a new direction. It is be lieved by several scientific gentlemen of the city, chief among whom in this matter is Mr. R. S. Jennings, that eventually electric il lumination may be made most valuable in deep water investigations. The theory has not been practically demonstrated, for the experimentation is as yet yet in infancy; but it is thought that under proper conditions, the electric light can be so applied as to bril liantly light up the bottom of a body of water, even though the depth be one hun dred feet. To test the question, a Brush (l1c tric light machine was mounted upon a scow with an eight-horse power steam-engine to run it, and a tug was employed to tow the scow about the harbor. The gentlemen in terested in the experiment were accompanied by a number of iriends. The results were not fully satisfactory, owing principally to the roughness of the water, but the trip was a most interesting one, and the power of the electric light was strikingly manifested. A movable parabolical reflector was used back of the light, which was again and again thrown against vessels from two to two and a half miles distant, bringing them out in clear, full view, and enabling their names to be read with the aid of a glass. When the light was thrown upon the dome of the City Hall, it leaped out of the darkness and stood up against the dark sky as if suspended in mid-air. One of the curious features of this part of the display was that to persons in the city the shadows of steamers and other ves sels passing at this time between the light and the City Hall dome were distinctly pro trayed against the white background. It may well be imagined what a sensation was created by this par orama. If, as is believed, I the idea is a feasible one, its workings will be of great importance in the search of lost treasures, for drowned persons, the raising of wrecks, the removal of torpedoes, &c. Denmoralization In Politics. [N. Y. Sun.] It is a painful commentary on the prevail ine demoralization in politics that the recent alleged attempt at bribery in the Legislature at Albany has generally been treated as a joke. The Republicans seemingly have taken no other view of it. They appear to regard it as wearing no serious aspect whatever. And even the Democrats have sadly fallen short of the duty devolved upon them by such an occurrence. Even the'patriotic Gen. Spinola-strictly honest as he is said to be has fallen far short of doing his duty in the premises. He should have roused a storm that could not be quelled. He of all men should have seen in this no occasion for a joke. If anything in this world can be seri ous, the attempt to corrupt, to weaken, to destroy republican government by bribery is serious. Erastus Brooks has arisen more nearly equal to the occasion than any one else. But · what has even Mr. Brooks done compared to what he ought to do ? On this subject a man cannot go so fai that he will not be sustained by the people Ifipublic offices, especially of a legislativ( character, are to be bought and sold, ther the people are at once reduced to the condi. tion of serfs-of cattle and swine. If what Mr. Bradley says is false, he ih one of the greatest criminals of the age. Ii what Mr. Bradley says is true, then Mr. Ses sions has no proper mate but the serpent the serpent that entered the Garden of Eden. Hardened, debauched, habitually corrupt legislators may laugh over the matter. The honest, plain people of the country will never laugh at the idea of public offices being sold, because full well they understand that it is in effect bartering away the people's rights and liberties. The crimes of the Czar were but the con summation of corruption in the Government of Russia. The people desire no Czar, either single headed or many-head, in this country. We warn the legislators at Albany, of all parties, that they cannot possibly over-e sti mate the importance and the gravity of this charge by a Republican Assemblyman against a Republican State Senator of an attempt at bribery, and of the actual payment of two thousand dollars in furtherance of that at tempt.
