SATURDAY, MAY 21, 1370.
In several towns in Vermont,
the Republicans and the Demo
crats are uniting in their calls for
caucusses to nominate delegates
to the State Constitutional Con
vention, that the best men maybe
elected regardless of political
opinions.
A species of brigandage has
been commenced by the Indians of
Texas. They abduct wives and
daughters of white men in that
section and hold them for ransom.
This fact has been reported to the
Government, but as yet no steps
have been taken to punish the cop
per colored ruflians. Reason why,
because Texas is a Southern Slate.
Why is the New York Tribune
hostile to the Fenians and Irish
freedom? Three years ago it had
for its watchword, "America is
with Ireland," and this when the
Irish were in revolution. Mean
tlmo the Tribune has lost none of
its enthusiasm for the negro.
Ths Philadelphia Age says:
"In city and country the Demo
cratic party is a unit in opposition
to the fraudulent and infamous
Fifteenth Amendment. There is
not a break in the line. No Dem
ocrat is absent from his post. All
are ready for the contest to again
make this a white man's country,
a white man's government, and an
inheritance fit for the children of
white men."
Grant has been very gruff with
"interviews" since his Into visit to
his accomplished brother-in-law
Mr. Corbin, and other shinning
Northern lights. The New York
World hints that things did not
work altogether smoothly in re
spect to certain arrangements for
ifcoutracts" predicted upon a pro
spective Indian war. The Doylcs
town Democrat thinks his Excel
lency should, nevertheless, be
contented, for although "he is the
lnzziest man that ever occupied
the Presidential chair, he has al
ready contrived to make more
clear money out of the position
than any ten Presidents wo have
ever had."
A Texas correspondmcnt makes
this statement, which is capable
of more than one construction:
"Lincoln, Grant, Sherman, and
Butler arc renewing their youth all
over the South in the shape of
juvenilo fifteenth amendments,
from one to Ave years of age, the
assistant voters of the future."
Says the Richmond Dispatch :
If the members of the Virginia
House of Delegates expect in this
day of calamity in Richmond and
poverity in Virginia that they are
to have a hall ilttcd up for them
with desks and all the confine
ments of modern legislative halls,
they look for more than their fore
fathers had, and they were quite
as good as their descendants.
Mb. Suvmkb proposes another
law for the special good of the
negro, which he earnestly declares
is, so far as he knows, to be the
last. This law is to give the ne
gro the same rights on stcaiuboa ts
railroads, and such places, as
white men have. It Is, In fact, a
recognition of the failure and in
sufficiency of the Civil Rights bill.
That bill gave the negro the same
rights as the, white man every
where, and, therefore, of course,
governed these cases; but it is
found ineffective, and hence the
present effort to give again, by
special law, what was fully given
before. In this necessity for iter
ative legislation, we see the futil
ity of attempts to establish by
legal means facts that the people
are not willing to accept. Ne
groes may travel in the first cabin
in Massachusetts becauso the peo
ple are pleased to indulgo
themselves with that little vanity
of superior philanthropy; but they
will not elsewhere, despite a great
many laws of Congress; for courts
are In sympathy with the people,
and there are few judges not suf
ficiently acute to find in the wil
derness of the law, plenty of valid
points against an unpalatable
statute.
JEWISH
Yesterday was the occasion of
smost important and Interesting
event to. the Jewish portion of our
citizens. It wu the dedication of
their church and brought out their
fnll strength to participate lathe
ceremonies. About the hour desig
nated In the programme, the proces
sion formed at B sum's Hall, on
Washington street, In the folio
ing order : Police, musicians, youths
of the congregation, (both sexes)
congregation and invited guests.
It wu a pleasing sight to witness
the little girls, who were beautiful-
ly attired iu white Swiss dresses,
with scarfs of piuk tarleton thrown
across the shoulder aud waist.
Closing their rear were four or five
carrying a circled wreath, in the
contre of which was a young
girl with a velvet cushion and a
key. The procession moved down
Washington street to Grove, up
Grove to Cherry, and to .he Temple
where open order wu formed and
the rear marched through into the
Temple.
The chairman of the building Com-
mitttce proceeded to the pul
pit, accompauicd by the
priests and those bear-
ing the scrolls of the law. The 111.
tie girls were placed Just in front
of the pulpit, while music from the

with our bright future, I haud you

tion, aud may this temple proudly
aud worthily take its place among
all the high aud sublime houses of
God that have bceu consecrated to
the Kiug of Glorv. here iu the New
aud yonder iu the Old World.
Mr. Sam Fischcl responded in the
following happy strain :
Mr Dbab Child:
My tips almost full to giv? utter-
auce to the' emotions that stir me,
on being the recipient through
our pure hands, of so great a
trust, so high an honor, as the cus
tody ot this key. It is not ofteu
i lite-time, that one Is called
upon to give expression to the sen
timents which animate me, on so
great, so soul-stirring an occasion
as the present. The consecration
or a building, erected to the wor
ship of our Universal Father, is
tho noblest deed, the grandest tri
umph a Nation or community can
achieve, aud it is with no little
pride and gratitude that I accept
the great truth you have just col
lided to my care.
When I look around me, and
upon this Imposing assemblage, I
can not too lerventlv thank Had
for permitting the completion of
lois grcai worn.
I thank yon, my dear child, and
through yon the Members of the
Congregation, for their flattering
mark of esteem.. To your
playmates aud little friends, you
may carry my assurance, that no
effort shall be spared by their
"Elder," to Impart to them a full
knowledge of the Divine teachings
and trust of our beloved Religion.
The choir then sang "Man Tom"
"How good are thy tents, 0,
Jacob." The following wu read,
from Psalm hvh:
"Raise roar heads, 0 ye Gates!
and be raised high ya everlasting

A circuit wu formed around the
pulpit by the officiating ministers
and the bearers of the scrolls, tbe
choir singing In the meantime. Tbe
following from psalm o. wu read :
"Shout glory unto God, all the
earth! Worship with joy ; appear
in bis presence with rejoicing;
yet that God is the Lord: it is lie
who hath made us. aud His we are
His people aud the sheep of His
pasture. Enter ye his gates with
thanksgiving, and his courts with
adoration ; thank Him and praise
His name. For God is good : His
grace is everlasting, aud His truth
eudureth to all gcueralions."
The choir repeated, during which
time a second circuit was perform
ed around the pulpit.
Tho following from tho first
chapter of Moses was read :
In the beginning God created
the heavens and the earth. And
the earth wu without form aud
void ; and darkness was upon the
face of the deep, and the spirit of
God moved upon the face ot the
waters, -and God said, let there be
light and there teas light."
Psalm cl "Hallelujah" wu
then sung by the choir, and the
perpetual lamp lighted, when the
third circuit wu performed.
"Jancbzet Alii Lande" was then
sung. The little girls placed the
wreaths around the scrolls, and the
Bible and Prayer book on tbe pul
pit stand, when the scrolls were
deposited within tbe Tabernacle.
Evertblng done was followed by
music from the choir, who saugln
tbe sweetest strains. The congre
gation sat with uncovered heads,
while the gu burners were all
lighted. The scrolls contain the
five books of Moses, which are all
read, we understand, In the course
of three years. The "perpetual
lamp" is to burn constantly and
without iutcrmisslon. It Is sus
pended in front and above the
tabernacle, aud prescuts a reddish
appearance. Upon the coucluslou
of the ceremonies, evening services
were held, which were closed with
benediction. The officiating priests
were, the Uev. Dr. M. Lilleuthal.of
Cincinnati, and Dr. B. II. Gottlielf,
statioued Miulster. Ah able and
clcquent surmou was delivered by
Dr. Lilicuihal, which will be fouud
below.
Among the invited guests we
observed Governor Alcorn and
several other distinguished gcutlo-
men, who seemed to enter Into the
ceremonies with much interest.
The iuterior of the church pre
sents a beautiful appearance and is
not surpassed, if equaled, by any
church iu tbe city in point of work
manship. The structure cost about
twenty-five thousand dollars and
is arranged something similarly to
the Presbyterian church, on Walnut
street. Tbe front part of tho build
ing Is uot very prepossessing, in
eousequeuce of its clumsiness; but
we have been Informed that a more
chaste aud elegant appearance will
be given it In the course of time.
We understand that refresh
ments were partaken of ou board
of the steamer Pargoud last even
ing. A grand ball terminated the
affair, which came off at the Pren
tiss House. There were a great
many in attendance, aud all ap
peared as happy as they could be.
Doubtless, yesterday will be a day
ever kept afresh in the memory of
the Israelites of our cltj. They
now have a place of worship ol
handsome structure, and one ot the
most learned ministers in the South,
which they should teel proud of, as
they doubtless do.
SEHMM DELIVERED AT THE
DEDICATION OF THE JEWISH
AY1AVVUIE I THIS CITY BY
THEHET. .HR.LIL.IE.1THAL.
Psalm CXX1I. t-"I wai g!al, when tuv
I'M unto me, let ui i Into tbo h.juu ol
tha Lord."
The work is done, and your task,
my brethren, nobly accomplished.
The hour, you have longed for, for
the consecration of this splendid
structure to the service ot God has
arrived, and with one heart and
pne psalm of thanksgiving you join i
lirtiie words of the Psalmist:
"Enter into his gates with thanks
giving and into his courts with
praisef be thankful onto him and
bless ills 'name; for the Lord is
good; his rnToy f s everlastlug, aud
his truth ehdiircthmto all genera
tions.' ;
Yes, I can cof -hend vour joy
ous sentiments : i aft fully appre
ciate the pride and satisfaction
with which yon look on this tern-
Sle, the noble result of noble sacri
ces and exertions. Yon, my
brethren, though u yet but few In
numbers, have spared neither mon
ey, nor trouble and labor, to com
plete this house, the first Jewish
temple in the Etca ol Mississippi,
of which henceforth It will be said
This is none other than the house
of tiod, and this Is the gale of
ueavenl You. dear and pious
mothers of Israel, with cheering
looks and words, have you encour
aged the men, not to spare and not
to falter, till they had compiled with
the old sacred command: "They
shall make a sanctury, that I may
dwell among them." Yon, my dear
children, tad you, the young men
ana maidens or Israel, you reel
proud in tbe pride of your good
parents, and with eyes, sparkling
wun niiai love and gratitude, you
say with the Psalmist: "Open to
me the gates of righteousness. I
will go uuto them aud I will praise
the Lord. This is the day, which
the Lord has made, we will rejoice
and be glad on it"
Accept all, each and every one of
you, our best thanks tor this solemn
and happy hour, we are now cele
brating. May llcaveus' best and
richest blessing reward you. tbe ef
ficient officers, committees aud
members or this congregation ; may
unto you the .sacred promise be
verified, "He that soweth in tear
shall resp iu joy; he shall doubt
less come again with rejoicing,
bringing his sheaves with him?'
Heaven's best and richest blessings
on you, dear and good mothers in
Israel : may tbe blessing given by
the High Priest Ell to Hannah, be
fulfilled also unto you that the
God ol Israel may grant unto you
all that you uk of him. Heaven's
best blessing on you my young
friends, and my dearly beloved
children ; may He grant our prayer
tor yonr welfare, as it is saia : mo
Lord will bless them that fear the
Lord, both small aud great ; ye are
blessed of the Lord, who hath
made heaven and earth."
But our thanks and God's bles
sing also to the skillful architect
and all tbo workmen who have as
sisted In the construction of this
noble temple: God's blessing on
all those who have worked for Its
embellishment aud adornment ;
and Heaven's blessing above all ou
tbe noble Governor of this Bute
and our American brethren of oth
er denominations, who have as
sembled with us to celebrate this
consecration and are greeting this
day and this temple u a new proof
oi mat religious liberty, which is
tbe brightest gem In the glorious
and heuven-born diadem of our
country.
Biit let us come back to our text.
I am glad when they say unto me,
let us go into the house of the
Lord.'' These Inspired words wore
sung by the pious pilgrims, when
every year, on the three Jewish
holidays, they loft their homes and
happy firesides to worship in Jeru
salem, tbe holy city. From every
town and every hamlet there camo
the members or the twelve tribes.
However various their avocations
aud engagements ; however differ
ent their clannish aspirations and
predilections, all were forgotten in
the noble sentiment of their com
mon nationality. All differences
wero surrendered ; all aniiuotiUos
buried; all their ideu centered in
tho idea. Iu the love, power and
wisdom of God we must renew our
life, sanctify and hallow our ac
tions, eicvato and enuooie our
wishes aud desires. Ia the temple
of God we shall ever be impressed
with the trutn that there is some
thing higher aud grander than mere
wealth, power aud lust and am
bitiou. And when they bad wor
shipped there, when they had lis
tened with devotion and emotion
to tbe mighty choirs o( the lead
ers ; when they bad been edltied
aud instructed by the admonitions
aud teachings of the prophets;
when their better nature bad been
aroused aud awakened; then, as
their ameu to prayers, psalmodies
aud sermons they shouted in glor
rious emulatiou, "Indeed we are
happy when they say unto us, let
us go into tbo house of our God."
This, heuceforth, will be your
happy lot, too, my brethren. Hith
er, you men of Israel, you shall
come to humble yourselves aud to
bow down before tbe throne of
Heaveu's majesty, as we are pray
ing every morning and every even
ing. Away with tbe egotistical
pride that, boasting of its success,
will say, "My power and the
strength of my haud bu won for
me .all this fortune." Away with
that stony heart, that beats only for
solftsu purposes, and knows of
neither love to God or to mau ;
away with those staring eyes that
know but to grope their way
through the moles of the earth,
without a look up to Heaven or to
tbe welfare aud happiness of oth
ers. No, here you shall be remind
ed of your nobler and holier nature,
ot your higher aud luting destiny,
so that, really happy and really
contented with your lot, you may
exclaim, "He that has clean hands
aud a pure heart, who has not lifted
up bis soul unto vanity nersworu
deceitfully, shall receive the bless
ing from the Lord and righteous
ness from the God of salvation."
A well tried friend to the grave,
to his last resting place, may
they find here comfort and conso
lation ; may the hope of immortal
ity retlect Itself in their tearful
eyes. May they go away, confirm
ed in the faith so beautifully ex
pressed in the words,
Lift ii nil. Lift li tarnett,
Aud tli grave If got iti fit';
Duit thou art. todn't wturoMt,
Was aot peka of till toui.
Thus, in life and In death, in hap.
piness and adversity, we know
where to look in order to find shel
ter, hope, and comfort No matter
how the storm of life may rage, we
know where to cut our anchor;
no matter how lonely and forsaken
we may feel, we know where to
find our father who always will be
with us. No matter how cunningly
deceit, and falsehood, and selfish
neu may try to entrap us, we know
where our friend U, tad will never
deceive us ; no matter how much
wealth and gain, and pleuure and
mst may attempt to ruin us, we
snow where to find the fountain
head of real and luting joy and
pieuure, ana exclaim: ins joy in
God shall be our strength and
might And thus looking to this
sacred place, to this holy shrine,
we My, better than the old Patri
arch Jacob did: "Surely the Lord
Is In this place and we know It;"
and therefore, "we are glad when
they aay onto us, let ns go into tbe
house of ths Lord I"
But we have still another cause
for rejoicing, when now-a-days we
repeat the words of onr saored laws.
For eighteen long centuries we have
been sitting mourning and weep
,ng, not only on the rivers of Baby
on, but on the shores of every
river on tbe old continent Relig
ious hatred and prejudice, fanatic
ism and bigotry ruled supreme.
Instead of loving one another like
the children of one father, men
bated aud persecuted and murder
ed one another, and all for tbe
glory and in honor of God. Then
there stood the synagogue, a for
lorn outpost on the dark and
gloomy ghetto, resounding with
wailiug and lamentations. Ths joy
with which tbe worshippers enter
ed the house of God, wu not pure
and unadulterated ;uo,lt wu alloyed
with tears and fears, and only faith
and hope were the miulsterint
angels. Tbe heavenly messengers
that whispered confidence in the
ears of the devout mourners; it
wudark, terribly dark right on
earth ; only the stars of a hope of
better times were twinkling In the
rightly firmament
And the better scenes were com
ing, for He sleeps and slumbers not,
the guardian or Israel. On that
same day, on which Ferdinand and
issabella or Spain, Instigated by
Forquemada, drove 800,000 Israol
lets from that proud pinlnsula,
Christopher Columbus sailed from
Palos to discover tbe virgin soil of
American libertv. Once mora the
Creator spoke, let there be light
and there ws light Of course.
tbe twilight lasted yet for centu
ries, for the progress of the human
race is a slow one, and especially
slow in religious matters, But day
was dawning, and the sun like a
bridegroom wu coming out of bis
bridal chamber rejoicing as a
strong roan, to run his race. Fred
erick the Great of Prussia, wu the
first Monarch who uttered the fa
mous word, let every one be bless
ed, according to his Ideas. And
nobly he was followed by Joseph
II, tbe liberal Emperor of Austria,
who first granted an order of mu
tual religious toleratiou.
But the true prophets and apos
tles of modern civilization ware
those God-Inspired men, who, on
the 4th of July. 1770. proclaimed
the divine principle of civil and re
ligious liberty. They deolared
State aud Church separated for
ever. They proclaimed the self-
evident truth that every man lseu
titled to lire, liberty and Happiness
they broke the chains of every fet
tered race and class ; aud America,
tbe giant child or America became
the beacon light for the hopes and
aspirations or all Humanity. U
God bless America. Heavens best
reward to those immortal spirits of
Washington aud bis compeers who
llrst asserted mau s innate right
and titles; and Israels lasting grat
itude to them and their desceudauts
for evermore. -
Religious liberty, at last bu won
the victory and has become a truth,
a well established matter of fact
And nowbero more than here In
the sunny South. Since fifty years
tbe most important positions aud
omccs have been entrusted to Lira
elites by their American brethren
and fellow-citizens. Thcro has not
been mere religious toleration nor
mere passive acquiescence ; but re
ligious liberty and equality in the
fullest sense of the word; and
while we Iglory In this noble fact,
how appropriate is it that we now
exclaim, when entering our tem
ples : "I am glad, when they say
unto me, let us go into the boose
of our God ," for now we have
cause to rejoice indeed ; the hour
of our salutation and redemption
hu come ; in spite of all momenta
ry drawbacks, the reconciliation of
the human race in the love of God
can and will not be retarded.
And this is the third reason why
we proudly exclaim : "I am glad,
when they say nnto me, let us go
into the house of God," our God,
for Israel s religion will assist iu
accelerating this happy time so
long desired and prayed for. While
we shall repeat here day after day,
the words of our sacred creed,
"Hear, O Israel, Jehovah is our
God, Jehovah Is one," we do not
worship a veteran God, who Is but
our Father, but our Redeemer and
our special Providence. No, this
idea ot a uatiouai uod has
exploded long ago. We consecrate
this temple to the common Father
head of Uod, and the common
Brotherhood of man. While within
these walls tbe' descendants of
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will
convene to worship tbe bod of
their fathers, we at the same time
will pray, sincerely and devoutly,
with King Solomon : "Hear them
in heaven, thy dwelling plac, and
do according to all that the stranger
calleth to thee for." "While here
we shall inculcate to the great and
tbe little ones tbe paramount doc
trine, that "love thy fellow man as
myself" is the supreme and all
comprising command of the Bible.
we shall teach them also, in the
words of our teacher and prophet
noses, that this word does not ap
ply merely to the relations between
Israelite and Israelite, but u he
emphatically enjoins, "But the
stranger, that dwelleth among yon
shall be unto von m one born
among you, r.- I tfcstt ttz.lt love
him as tbyr f ; I am the Lord your
God" (Let. WkUt here w
hall try to wU by a life of justice,
charity, and benevolence, admission
Into tbe blissful regions of future
life ; we shall never claim aa exclu
sive privilege for ourselves, bat
with onr old Rabbis, shall preach
and teach t Tbe good oaea of all
denominations, no matter what
their creed or faith, shall parties
pate in the blessings of future life.
These are our doctrines. This is
our religion, breathing universal,
ail-comprising . love saul charity,
and, therefore, we shall repeat:
"I am glad, when they tell me, let
ns go into the bouse of oar God."
No fenetaclsm, no bigotry, no ex-
cluslveness any longer. Broad m
God's love shall be onr love : broad

and earth: bright as God's

Have we not all one father? bu
not one God created us all, why
should we become fatherless oue
to the other, and destroy tbe cov-
enant of our fathers; and cheer
fully therefore we close for Jews
and Christians with the prayer of
the I'salmist: "Peace be within
my walls and prosperity within
thy places ;" for my brethern and
eilow-citiuns sake, I shall now
say: feacs be within thee: be

God, I will seek thy good for ever

We have seen a remark made by
a paper in New York '-if it were
not for the cotton crop,there would
be no coin balances in New York
banks or in the Federal Treasury !
it would all be on the other aide of
the Atlantic" which we believe.
We add, if the growers ot cotton
would grow their necessities, such
as corn, hay, hog and horse, the
South could resume specie pay
ments after two crops; and the
"Federal TreMury,'1 with the
"New York banks," would soon
be crushed under the weight of
the green rags and the gold inter
est borids.
We dare not let an opportunity
slip to give "line upon line," "pre
cept on precept," until there bo a
change, say we can make two
and a quarter millions of baiea,
and worth at leaat two hundred
and fifty millions . of dollars, it
would not need two years to give
us specie for all purposes. What
is the truth in connection here

of say 4,000,000 of bales, netting
four hundred millions of dollars?
How much gone for the gew-gawi

we are, with oar cotton, sup

greenbacks and nil the thlevings

kept at home all it sells for
how long would it be necessary to

In twelve months the bottom
