IxDUNsror.is, Ind., January 15.—The Daily News’ special from Bloomington, Ind., says: A desperate effort was made here last night to mob Epps, the negro who so cruelly murdered James Dobson a few nights ago, by the vigilants, but the bravery of the Sheriff and his depu ties kept the excited crowd at bay. All day people collected from the neighbor hood of Salisbury, and by 4 o’clock it was evident that to leave Epps in re overnight was almost certain death. So, preparations were at once made to remove him to Vincennes for safe-keep ing. Just at dusk a buggy drove hur riedly up to the rear of the jail. In an instant it was surrounded by the crowd. Soon the Sheriff'appeared with a cocked revolver in bis hand, and stated he would shoot the first man who inter fered. In a moment’s time Epps was in a buggy and disappearing us fast as the horses could take him. The crowd was so infuriated that horses were secured and several men started at once. But as there were several different roads, they lost the track and soon returned. By midnight the streets were tilled with ex cited people, anti another posse started in hot pursuit to overtake the prisoner. But at 1 o’clock nothing has been heard, and Epps is now at Vincennes.

Miss Jennie Molihenny, the owner of the place, was, with the exception of two servants, the only occupant of the house. One of the servants discovered the flumes and awoke Miss Molihenny, who rushed from the house in her bare. feet. The young lady stood on the icy platform near the well and pumped water for 20 minutes. Then, Seeing that help was needed, she dashed aw ay through the snow a quarter of a mile to the nearest bouse. When she had given the alarm she ran bnck. The temperature was 12 degrees below zero,and Miss Mcllbenny was near paralyzed with cold. Her bare feet and limbs were badly frozen, and it was with the utmost difficulty that the attending pliyHicinn prevented the ne cessity ot amputation. The lady is now in a critical condition.

The result of the Washington movement will not, in the opinion of the Bell people, have much, if any, influence upon the tinancialoperationsof thecom pauy, yet the decision sent Bell stock from 1,2 down to 101, with 160 bid.

A Plucky Young Lady. Telephone Stocks. SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS. SATURDAY. JANUARY 16. I 88G. A STRONG PLEA For the Orphans and Helpless by Dr. Lewinthal. '1 he following sermon was delivered by Rabbi Lewinthal this morning at the Temple Beth-EI: Ye shall not afflict any widow, or tuilu rli •- child. II then afflict them in anywise and they cry at all unto me. I will surely hear their cry. ’ Exodus xxll; 21, —. There is nothing which more clearly stamps the Bible as Divine than the compassion and solicitude it incalculates for the poor, the wretched and forsaken. The sympathies of the world are ever with the strong, the prosperous ami the gifted; the tender mercies of God Al mighty are upon the weak, the miser able, and the wounded. He is witli those that are of a contrite and bumble spirit to revive the spirit of the low I,’ and to quicken the heart of the contrite. It is this same loving pity which we are exhorted to exhibit toward those that are desolate and helpless. The very fact Hint they are weak and without de fense is to constitute their most powei fill claim upon our active kindness. There are some philosophers who tell us that this feeling of compassion is in born within us. Does history warrant this assumption? Wo are accustomed to look upon the edict of Pharaoh, llint every new born son of the Israelii, s should be cast into the river, as one < f the most inhuman decrees that was ev, r issued. Are you aware that a similar practice prevailed, to the very largest extent, among the nations of antiquity? Infanticide is now regarded with abhor rence; it is justly punished as murder; In former days it was not even looked upon as a disgrace. Greece and Rome were the most gifted and greatest of an cient euipires. Their grandeur and the r wisdom did not save them from commit ing this atrocity. In Sparta the law di rected that when a child was born lbs lather was to carry it to an appointed place to be inspected by the eiders <4 tliecominunity. ifthey perceived that Its limbs were straight and its appearance healthful they returned it to its parents to be reared; otherwise it was thrown into a deep cavern at the foot of the mountain Taygetus. In the other Gre cian republics a similar disregard of in fant life was shown. If the infant was sickly, it was instantly killed; If not. the father was only taken to see it on the ninth day. and if, on seeing it. he stooped down and took it into his arms, it was brought up. But if he did not do this, the little Greek child was exposed in the open air upon some hillside and there left to perish by starvation, unless some one saved its life for the purpose of rear ing it for a career of slavery or infamy. It was the same in Rome rsocomplete ly had luxury eaten away the natural instincts in one class; so deep and de grading was the misery in another, that parents continually exposed and aban doned their children. Nay, the noblest of Romans—consuls, censors and prae tors — were guilty of this hideous crime. You have often beard the famous line quoted with approbation : “lam a man, and nothing that concerns mankind is foreign to my feelings.” When these words were first spoken in the Roman theatre they evoked the loudest applause. This apothegm is uttered by I lie very father who had rebuked his wife for her foolish weakness in exposing rather than killing their female babe. And this out rage of child murder still exists. How many mothers flung their babes into the floods of the Ganges until India cam<* under English rule? In China, in spite of all her learning and the thin veneerof her outward polish, this practice still prevails to a frightful extent. A few y ears ago a French nobleman found sev en dead children during a short morn ing’s walk in the environs of Canton. Nay, how have modern philoso phers acted in this respect? Rous seau, the eloquent, the impassioned who penned so brilliant a work or, education, Rousseau fell no pity for bis own children, their weakness did not touch his heart. Un willing to incur the trouble of training and the expense of maintaining them, he was guilty of the scandalous aet of abandoning every one of them to the public charity of a foundling hospital. Contrast within famous actions such as these the command enacted in our text: '•ye shall not afflict any widow or fatherless child. If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto Me, I will surely hear their cry.” Can any language more emphatically and forci bly express the tender mercy of the eternal? His love made the sorrows of those who had lost their natural protec tor. His own. They are His clients in the Roman sense of the word. He is their great patron. He identifies him self with their interests. He will up hold their cause. The words that fol low seem harsh and severe, but there are times when harshness and severity constitute the truest tenderness. “And my wrath shall wax hot. and 1 will kill you with the sword, and your wives shall be widows and your children fath erless.” What more effectual warning could be addressed to the Israelites than the threat that their lack of mercy would recoil upon those dearest to them? Yet, even though they sinned. God’s tenderness would be extended to those they left behind. Israel incurred the penalty menaced in these words. One of the main causes which brought upon them the sword of Nebuchadnezzar was that they did violence to the stranger, the fatherless and the widow. But when the desolation and destruction were to come upon them when many a husband and father were doomed to fall by the sword, the Lord repeated His gracious promise by the mouth of the Prophet Jeremiah: “Leave lliy father less children to me, 1 will keep them alive, and let thy widows trust in me.” Nor did our heaven inspired teacher content himself with vague exhortations and general admo nitions. He did not leave the fate of the forsaken to the chance sympathy or mo mentary humors of individuals. He gave positive enactments which were to secure for the orphan a regular and cer tain competence. The nation at large was called upon to provide for their wants. At every festival, at the gather ing of the harvest, at the beating of the olive trees, at the gathering of the grape of the vineyard, when giving of the tithes of the w'ine, the corn and the oil, when the firstlings of the herds and of the flocks, and the first fruits of the land were to be devoted to the Lord, the w idow and the orphan were to be lov ingly remembered. However destitute the orphans had been left, they were to be shielded from hunger and privation. Their defenseless state, instead of en couraging, was to prove the safeguard against oppression, fraud and injustice. “Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the fatherless; thou shalt not take the raiment of the fatherless to pledge.” And this selfsame spirit pervades the whole of the Bible. When suffering Job looks back upon his past life and exam ines lus past career, anxious as to what transgression could have entailed upon him heaven’s wrath, lie inquires. “Have I eaten a morsel by myself alone, ami the fatherless hath not eaten thereof? for from my youth he was brought up with me. llave 1 lifted up my hand against the fatherless when I saw my help In the gate (friends and supporters who would uphold me in the court of justice ?)” These injunctions and such examples made a deep impression on Judaism, so that loving regard for those who have lost their natural protectors has ever been a prominent trait In the Jewish character. 1 need not refer nt length to a fact which is well-known to the most of you. For 31 years has the Jew ish* Widows’ and Orphans' Homi in the City of New Orleans, proviued for those who in early youth have been deprived of their natural protectors. At present 144 children are housed, fed. clothed an 1 educated in Hie institution, and trained to earn hereafter their subsistence. This Institution lias but a few days ago held its anniversary festival; the Board of Directors have issued their uppeal and await its result with much anxietv. Although this orphan asylum is ad ministered with ttie greatest po-sibie economy, all the officers serving with out compensation, yet tile expenditures last year reached the sum of $15,163.27, and tor the purpose of maintaining the institution an annual appeal is made and the Israelites of New Orleans gen erally contribute more than half for the maintenance of the institution. 1 doubt not that those among us who have always contributed to its mail - tenance in former years, and who have but lately liberally subscribed for the erection of a new building (the present building being entirely too small) will again do so witn an unstinted hand. Ihe amounts I ask for are small and within the reach o: every one. When Ilie sanctuary stood in Jerusa lem. t he emossnries were sent on the first day of Adar to ml the tow ns in Judea, to remind anil to exhort every Israelite to contribute his half shekel to the ser vice of the Temple. And from the money thus raised Hie sacrifices were brought from the first of the succeeding Nissan. Just so with lhe Jew ish Widows and Orphans Home in the city of New Orleans. On the Sth day of January of each year the institution bolds its anni versary celebration, and contributions for its maintenance tor the ensuing year are solicited In behalf of these orphans do I appeal to you. These children turn their inno cent appealing bices, their eyes full of tears unto us, saying: “Since God has taken fattier and mother from us, will you not be unto us even as fathers and mothers? And the Lord seconds their appeal. He says unto those who are childless: “if you will rear, or help to rear, an orphan boy or an orphan girl.it will be accounted unto you even as though you have been ti e parent of that child.” Think what potentiality of goodness there may be in one infant. How great the blessing which one child can bling unto the world, unto Judaism. Esther was nil orphan, she bad neither father n< r mother; and when her father and mother were dead, hercousin, Mordecai, took her for his own daughter. Whnt would have become of Israel in the dark season of persecution bad not Mordecai lovingly brought her up and kindled in her heart burning love for her people ? My dear friends, it it pleased the Lord to call you away from earth, and you would be obliged to leave your children unprovided for, and your kinsmen and kinswomen would take your desolate, orphaned little ones into their bouse and shelter them, and train them and imbue them with love of their ancestral faith, would not then your purified soul pray to God in heaven to bless and to proti < t those that had not left <4l their .kindness to the living and to the dead? Can you not believe that the departed parents of these fatherless boys and girls pray to God for those who are the bene factors of the desolate? Will you refuse to believe that God in bis mercy will hearken to these prayers. He hath said: “Ye ahnll not afflict the fatherless child.” He has vouchsafed his promise. “Take these children and nurse them forme, and I will give thee thy wages.” Republicans in Caucus. Washington. January 15.—Republi can Senators met in caucus at 10:30 this morning and adjourned at half past I o'clock. Their purpose was to compare views with regard to the right of the Senate to ask information as to the ('resident’s reasons for making removals from office. The fact was stated that many of the inquiries addressed to the heads of departments by the Chairman of Committees remain unanswered up to this time, and indicates the purpose to refuse to give this information. No formal proposition was made, and no action taken, while; a wide variety of opinions found expression witli regard to the propriety of raising a formal Issue wi'h the administration at present upon this question. A majority were of the opinion that should the information sought not ultimately be forthcoming, the duty of the Republicans will, injus tice to the men suspended or removed for supposed caused, be to take some formal action in the -enate to secure the information, or an avowal by the Presi dent that he will not give bis reasons for making the removals. There was unan imous concurrence in the opinion that the removed officials have a right to know whether they were removed for political reasons or maladministration of their trusts, and that it is the Senators’ duty to secure this information if possi ble. The Committees. Washington. January 15.—The House Committee on rivets and harbors to-day resolved to limit the total amount of the appropriation for improving rivers and harbors to $11,000,000. The sums recommended for appropriation will in no case be made public in advance of the bill. The Committee on invalid pensions of the House to-day agreed to report favor ably Mr. Matson’s bill to Increase the pensions of willows from $8 to $l2 per month. Irish Famine. London, January 15.—An Irish high sheriff has written to the Times, that, pending the discussion of politics by parliament, a famine is approaching In Ireland, and with it will come acts of lawlessness. Violent men. he says, de termined rot to starve, will seize the ne cessaries of life, even at the risk of do ing bodily harm to others. —Every first-class dealer sells Opera Puffs cigarettes.

Mi»s Blanche Curtisse and company, In “Ouli a Farm er’s Daughter," at Turner Opera House. MlssCurtisse has the reputation of being a lovely woman and a tine actress. “Only a Farmer's Daughter" has been popular for eight seasons, and it is an exceptionally powerful drama. Sarony anil the well-known Larrv Dooley, of the Fashion, have “doubled up," as the term goes in professional parlance, and will visit the old country, commencing their engagement in Lon don. Local amateur talent in the city will shortly produce the well-known melo drama, Jessie Graham. It will be pro duced at Turner Opera House on or about the 18th proximo. Regarding Sunday performances. Mil ton Nobles says: -1 should like to see the custom of giving theatrical per formances on Sunday broken up. Hie Law and Order League is doing good work in tills direction In Cincinnati, and will do still better, having obtained a decision from the courts in its favor, 1 have been looking over my books and have discovered that in n financial way nothing is to be gained by playing on Sunday. When 1 have played to 14g business on Sunday 1 have found that my Monday and Saturday receipts were correspondingly diminished. Before the inauguration of Sunday performances Monday and Saturday evenings were al ways our big nights. Now. when «e open to SS6O or sllUUSunday, the receipts are apt to fall to $360 Monday. Then, theater-goers who used to pack the house Saturday nights now see the next attraction billed in great style to open Sunday and wait tor that performance. It would be beneficial in more senses than one to have the actors have a day of rest. I have just returned from a trip through the West, hav ing gone over the Union Pacific and returned over the Northern Pacific. T he Fashion Theatre this week has a really good programme. The two Bur tons. John and Lottie, are clever per formers. and Yasso, the Chinese juggler, is a marvel. One of bis best tricks is as follows : He walks among the audience with a paper of needles, giving about 24 to various people. He then asks each one who has received u needle to put it in bis (Yasso's) mouth, lie coming for that purpose. Each of these lie appar ently swallows, and returning to the stage, lie gets a piece of thread and once more walks around the spectators. While doing so he pulls each needle out of bis mouth separately until all of them are perfectly threaded. Miss Fanny Hunt D'Alma will give i concert at Turner Hall shortly. Dr. Hammond says that in a thousand years all white men will be bald. What a rush there will be for front seats then. The breach between John Henry Bro drib Irving and Ellen Watts Kelly Terry is said to have widened ot late to an im passable chasm. The female baseballists are working this way. They will probably visit San Antonio soon. Adelaide Detchen, once a favorite member of Wallack’s New York com pany, is whistling at fashionable mati nees and soirees In London.

January 15.-Concerning a petition of the Mormon colony nt I’ima, Arizona, to the territorial government for arms and ammunition to defend themselves against the Apaches, a special from Tucson. Arizona, says : It is not known what action Governor Zulick will take in the matter, but many suspicious circumstances have recently come to light which Indicate that the Mormon colony has long been secretly encourag ing the murderous Apaches' by supply ing them with powder and trading them guns in exchange for stolen horses, which the Mormons sell in Mexico. It is also stated that the Mormons of Pima were in league with Geronimo's band, and that the host Ues were on most friendly terms with the Mormons. The Indian scouts state the Mormons are getting ready to abandon the Pima col ony and move over into Sonora. That in view of this, they were buying all the stolen horses and cattle ’ that were brought to them, either by renegade In dians or thieving white men. It has been anticipated for several weeks that the Apaches are running short of ammu nition, and it is almost certain that they are seeking to obtain a fresh supply through their Mormon allies. 'The Pima colony numbers some 3200 Mormons, most of whom are polygamists. The Edmunds law has not yet been enforced among them, and they live in great dread of its execution. Business Failures.
