QO~CY~BBIO I~BAgentB Se.b Grast sad tie Jews. ha Tli The Israelite, an ably condueted ourm hra,. published at ancinnati, Ohlo, gives a, Gen. Grant the Tfllowlag well-merited no rebuke t Ut About that Grant nomination affair, lo we can only repeat what we said before, tic that in case of his nomination to- the to Paesidency, which we hope will not take as place, we will consider it ournduty to a oppose his and the party nominating tic him. We are told that no polities is wi expected from The 'Israelite, and it has &4 no intention of meddling with any. It an has kept aloof, all the time, except it when men like Grant, Butlei, Wilson, hin Ellis, Brownlow and others of this kind We abused and outraged the Jew. Then it "" did not care for the ety of treason raised pa at everybody who had anything to say, ar not indorsed by the censor In Washing- a ton, and struck.with both fsts. Worse dr than. Gen. Grat none in this century G in civilized countries has abused and to outraged --the Jews, officially in broad ed daylight and mostbarbarously. If there G are any among us who lick the feet that 9' kick them about, and like dogs ran after him who has whipped them, if there are or persons small enough to receive inde- at cencies and outrages without resent- ki ment, and creep about their torpentors for selfish purposes, we hope their num ber is small, and we know it is too small b, to be counted in comparison to those s who will not vote for a man and oppose at him who outraged the Jew in a manner as Gen. Grant did. Here is the story in fall: Hdqes. 13th Army Corp., Dept. Tents. et Oxford, Miss, Dec. 17, 1862. J General Order No. 11. The Jews, as a class, violating every regulation of trade established by the ai Treasury Department, also department u orders, are hereby expelled from the de partment within twenty-four hours from 01 the receipt of this order by post com manders. .b They will see that all this class of L poople are furnished with passes and required to leave; and any one returning after such notitication will be arrested rs and held in confinement until an oppor- d; tunity occurs of sending them out as si prisoners, unless furnished with permits si from these headquarters. No passes will be given this people to a visit headquarters for the purpose of w making personal application for trade ca permits. of By order of Major Gen. Grant. a J. A. aWLIINO, A. A. 0. . o This barbarian order caused a general a outcry of horror all over this country, in a the public press, public meetings and a resolutions, in any and every form. In b .ongress, Mr. Pendleton, of Ohio, mov- o ed the following resolution: I Whereas, on the 17th day of Decem- o ber, 1862, Major (len. Grant, command- c ing the Department of the Tennessee, a - did publish the following order, to-wit: (here followed the above order verba tim.) And in pursuance thereof did f, cause many peaceable citizens of the a United States, residents in the said de- q partment, to be expelled therefrom with- i , in twenty-four hours without allegation d i of special misconduct on their part, and t on no other proof than that they were - members of a certain religious denomi nation; and, a Whereas, The said order in its sweep- i ing condemnation of a whole class of a citizens, without discriminating between i the. guilty and the innocent, as illegal and unjust, and in its execution is ty- t rannical and cruel; therefore t Resolved. That the said order de serves the earnest condemnation of this House, and of the President as Com- I mander-in-Chief. This was lost in the House, but only because nobody paid any attention to it, t - and the order had baen revoked pre viously. The vote, after all, was a very . close one-56 voted to table and 53 to pass it; two more votes would have done y it. Among those voting for the resoln tion were, besides other Republicans, also Mr. Colfax, the present Speaker of I . the House; Mr. Low, of St. Louis, and I e other prominent members of that party. 1 The order No. 11 fell most savagely m upon the old Jewish residents in that 4 department; but there was no Senator I from those States in Washington, except I from Kentucky. Therefore, Senator Powell, from Kentucky, in behalf of his outraged constituents, introduced in substance the same preamble and reso Slution in the Senate, where it was de feated in a most shameful manner, where but seven, vis: Messrs. Davis, Harding, ILatham, Nesmith, Powell, Sanlsbury, and Wilson, of Missouri, had the moral courage and moral rectitude to stand by an outraged class of their fellow-eitizel s. President Lincoln could not persuade himself for a long time that Gen. Grant issued that order; but wben Mr. Haskel, of Padnesh, Ky., succeeded in convin cing him of the fact, he immediately re voked it, and expressed his indignation at the outrage in the strongest terms in presence of Messrs. Gurley, Lilenthal and Wise from Cincinnati, and Bjunr from Louisville. There was nobody, at the time, to de - fend the despotic and barbarous order of Gen. Grant, not a voice was heard in its favor or defence; but plenty, besides President Linool, seven Sepators and fty-three members of Congres, in its , ondemanation. Every free man felt Soutraged by the lawless ukase of a mifll Stary chieftain, whom they now want to force apon us as Chief Magistrate of the country. We have to say thibs: As a Jew, we cannot and will not vote for a man who 'ot has done a moe bsmess isjn-le s than may man to pewee n this eotsry, has done us in any civilized country. C Therefore we hope and expect that the sal entireJewiah preas will come out boldly a b and justly against the movement to on nominate Gen. Grant as President of the age United States. Again, as a citizen who tha loves his .country and her free instita- sin tions, who considers it his solemn duty int to protect justice and freedom as much eftf as it may be in his power, we can not esi and mpust not intrust the banner of jus- thu tice and freedom to the hands of a man uni who, when possessing the brief power of trn a'commander of -a volunteer army (and in I among them thousands of Jews,) abused oft it so ontrageously, and trampled upon rat his fellow-citizens because they were too I weak to resist. That maan, in our esti- boy mation, is unfit to be the chief of a re- any public whose citizens claim equal justice gri and equal freedom. Therefore we hope On and expect from all political leaders to re' drop the scheme of nominating Gen. as Grant. As a man, we feel an aversion go to every person who disrespects the just sm claims of humanity and justice, and Et Gen. Grant by his order No. 11, 1862, is bn guilty of that disrespect. on That is part of what we have to say he on this point. and we will say it over thi and over again, until the masses shall ab know and appreciate it; till the feeling of honor shall awake also with those sel who cry with the millions, laugh or weep re by order of their newspaper, cheer or is scorn ad libitum. When a tfew scanty by and poverty-stricken insurance compa- fie nies in New York offended the Jews by co an order not to insure their property, lo, there was noise, meetings, resolutions, Ni etc.; now when one who outraged the op Jew beyond measure or comparison, one lo1 who outraged the Jew, the man and the C( citizen, the dignity of the United States Ti and the sacred cause of justice and hu- IU manity, is proposed as President of the su United States, nobody has the courage M or the rectitude to talk. Is this princi- Be plel Is it manfull Is it honorablel at Let cowards be silent for utility's sake; ar but let men speak out honorably. la pc Consider that our good days are gene rally more in number than evil days, our days of prosperity-such, I mean, as are suitable to our condition and circum stances-than our days of adversity. d This is most certain, though most of a us are apt to cast up our accounts other wise. How many days of-at least competent-health have we enjoyed tfor one day of grievous sickness! How many days of ease to one of curses! For one danger that hath surprised us, how many scores ofdangers have we escaped, or and some of them very narrowly! But, as alasi we write our mercies in the dust, i but our afflictions we engrave in marble; our memories serve us too well to remem- bi ber the latter, but we are too forgetful w of the former. And this is the great of cause of our unthankfulness, discontent fr and murmuring.-Bishop Hall. A country schoolmaster, preparing bl I for an exhibition of his school, selected al a class of pupils and wrote down the fc questions he would put them on exam ination day. The day arrived, and so did the hopefuls, all but one.

"Na poleon Bonaparte," was .the answer, f quickly returned. "You believe in the a Established Church, do you not?" c' "No!" said the youngster, "the boy $' that bilieves in the church hasn't come a to school to-day!" We understand that the Sheriff has o received instructions to proceed imme- g diately to the collection of the back b Y taxes due the city. The amount of these a taxes is more than a million of dollars, and the dollection of them at this time 9 will doubtless have the effect of impro o ving the condition of city money.--[. e O. Picaywae, 18th instant. t a, FICxLu MAN.-There is, generally a of speaking, so much in a man's nature a d that it is incomprehensible to a woman, r. that it is always a daring task for her y to weigh his actions, or to attempt the it divinations of his feelings. His love is t ir seldom her love; his faith is not her t .t faith; his life is not her life-only ina r moments of existence which shine out is briefly and brightly in the dark expanse n of memory, like stars on the purple fir n- mament, does it seem that love and sym e- pathy can raise the curtain, and let one r, soul receive the other. For if woman s, knows not man, neither can he except in II, rarest instances, regulate the spring of ud her faults, or discover the fountain of le her virtues. lirl ---~c-- Never desert a friend, when enemies le gather around him, when sickness falls nt on the heart-when the world is dark il, and cheerless-is the time to try a true n- friend. They who turn from the scene .- of distress betray their hypoerisy, and pn prove that interest only moves them. If in you have a friend who loves you and al studies your interest and happiness, be ur sure to sustain him in adversity. Let him feel that his former kindness is sp Le- preciated, and that his former love is er not thrown away. Real fidelity may be in rare, but it exists in the heart.

The author maintains fio that the human race is cosmtopolitan, pry since it can live everywhere, and by its an intellectual powers neutralize the evil tie effects of physical agents on its organ- ga ism. To thisDr. Caffe demurs, objecting at that man does not perpetuate his race ve under all climates;that he may live, it th true, in any climate to which he is taken th in the prime of life,-but that sterility is ap often the consequence, and that at any wl rate his offspring will dieat an early age. co However, this may be, Dr. Foissac's t13 book contains much interesting matter, po and the chapter on stature contains a lei great many new and interesting facts. be On this subject Dr. A. Latour, in his ve review of the volume, expresses himself no as follows: "No one will maintain that ac good soldiers or not to be found among fn small men. During the campaign in Egypt, Moorad Bey's vexation would ar break out whenever he made a few of in our brave voltigucrs prisoners. 'What!' "" he would exclam, are these the men na that have beaten us? Shall I never be fu able to vanquish those little fellows?' of Yet Dr. Foissan maintains, on the th strength of highly reliable historical se records, that the inhabitants of ancient hr Gaul, who were victors and conquered ar by turns, but always terrible on the tl field of battle, were tall and flie men, 0 contrary to Dr. Broca's opinion. To the or low or middling stature of Alexander, ei Napoleon, and Gustave Adolphus, he ti opposes the gigantic proportions of Phi- ti lopasmen, Pyrrhus, Caesar, C h aremagne, t Conde, Peter the Great, and Charles the fo Twelfth. Most of the generals of the of Republic and marshals of the Empire, at such as Chamboinnet, Kleber, Pichegru, w Massena, Soult, Bernadotte, Kellerman, o1 Bessieres, and Murat, were very tall, or ti at least much above the common stand tl ard." Dr. Foissac not only finds the am latter condition fulfilled in that of great di political characters, orators, poets. learn ed men, and generally of most men representing intellectual power; whence C le concludes that, save in the case of of defoimity, genius and talent are indepen dent of physical conformation. Scarron cl and Pope would seem to nullify even the ni above saving clause.

Inno cent as a lamb, sweet as the breath of a summer's morning, beautiful as a houri, and pure as the white robed immortals. d her little heart at all times full of ten- i derness and love for all around her oh, what a sad pity it is that she will grow to wamanhood, run men crazy, i break their hearts, and perhaps become a flirt!

Smith is insis ting that I shall have him, and he hugs and kisses me so much, that I can't hold e out much longer." ' THE NEW TAX BIIILL.-No Reduction e on Distilled pirits.-A late Washing ton dispatch to the Western papers says tithe chairman of the Committe of Ways I n and Means made an important statement 4 n in the House this afternoon foreshadow ing the new tax bill, to the following eflect: The tax of manufactured articles I Sis almost entirely removed and retained - on four or five articles of luxury. The n tax on distilled spirits is fixed by the Scommittee at two dollars per gallon. nThe income tax remains unchanged. We spend half our lives in making mistakes, and waste the poor remainder in reflecting how easily we might have Savoided them. k Gov.

It was well set spi forth in a recent lecture by a Olevlaud we professor.; It is startling to learn the for amount of carbonic acid emitted from wi the longs of one person, or from a single go gas burner, enough to poison the whole the atmosphere of a good sized room in a W very brief period of time. How many inl think that winter temperature demands an the exclusion of fresh air to make their wi apartments warm and comfortable, the when the fact that in the cold season we as consume more oxygen, and consequen- ral tly exhale a greater quantity of the ml poisonous carbonic acid gas, should th lead Lto a directly opposite course. A WI bedroom in winter requires more me ventilation than in summer, and the ne non-observance of this fact will readily be account for the awful diseases to which or frail humanity is subject. Jc We wonder if many of our readers de are aware of the poisonous exhalations ms incident to a congregation of their "fellow-citizens," in ball rooms, church- nl and lecture halls. If they have not all fully considered the vast impoitaunce 30 of thorough venti:ation, let them take ce these undeniable facts home to their y3 serious thoughts. A person in health tl has eighteen breathings per minute, Li and thirty-five hogsheads of air passes t through the lungs in twenty--four hours. Of this, from three to five per cent. or about two and a half hogsheads, is TI exhaled as carbonic acid gas, and th thus one person would render two or hr three hogsheads of air unfit for brea- b thing again. Letevery person anxious th1 for the preservation of his health, take Ti care that the windows of the dormitories 11 are dropped a little even during the 11 winter nights. There is far less danger p ot taking cold than there is of inhaling D the noxious atmosphere, which saps M the health, undermines the constitution, gs and embitters life with suffering and J1 diseaso that might have been avoided. U N POSTAGE BETWEEN TIIE U. S. AND I CANADA.-A Vashington dispatch of o of the 27th ult. says: Under a new arrangement just con cluded between the Post Office Depart- 11 ments of the United States and of the Dominion or Canada, the single rate of postage on international letters will be reduced, on and after the 1st of April, l 1888, from ten to six cents, if prepaid at the office of mailing in either country: is but if posted unpaid, or insuftlciently prepaid; they will be subjected to a postage charge of ten cents per single , rate, in the country of destination. The authorised weight of a single letter g will be fifteen drammes (by the metrical , scale) in the United States, and half an C ounce in the Dominion of Canada. J Postmasters will levy postage accor- o dingly on and after April 1,1808. THE COTTON WORM AGAIN. -The ok Jackson parish Flag, of February 22, fr says: One of of our most reliable and respec table planters, Mr. Harrison Hill, in- It forms us that within the past few days, y since the weather has become warm, he has seen millions of the fly which pro duce the cotton worm flying about his a plantation.

It is understood that the present s cabinet will resign promptly if the a Senate sustains the impeachment of t of Andrew Johnson. g BEAUTIFUL AND TRnu.-In a late a article i Frazier's Magazine this brief d but beautiful anid true passage occurs: e "Education does not commence with e the Alphabet-it begins with a mother's \. love; with a father's smile of approbn tion or a sign of reproof: with a sister's gentle forbearance; with a handful of g ftlowers in a green and dainty meadow; sr with a bird's nest admired but not e touched, with creeping ants, and al most itoperceptible comet; with pleasant walks in shady lanes, atd withi thoughts C directed in sweet and kindly tones Ii and words to nature; to acts of benevo - lentce; to deeds of virtue, and to the a source of all good-God himself." BoYs UsiNG TonAcco.-A strong and Ss3nsible writer says a good sharp thing, a and a true one too, for boys that use tobacco: It has utterly rumid thousands ix of boys. It tends to soflening and weak in ening of the bones, and it greatly injures n- the brain, the spinal marrow, and the whole nervous fluid. A boy who smokes early and frequently or in any way uses is tobacco, is never known to make a man as of much energy, and generally lacks all muscular and physical as well as men ne tal power. We would particularly warn go boys who want to be something in the en world, to shun tobacco As a most baoeadhl ye poison.

S.--* The Philadelphia Ledger says, "since the adoption of the Constitution there have been but five trials of impeachment by the Senate. The first of these was that of William Blount, a Senator from Tennessee. It commenced December 17, 1798, and was concluded January 4, 1799. The next was the trial of John Pickering, Judge of the New Hampshire District, which lasted from March 3, to March 12, 1803. The third was that of Samuel Chase, one of the Associate Judges of the Supreme Court of the United States, which was commenced November 30, 1804, and lasted until March 1, 1805. The fourth was the trial of James H. Peck, Judge of the Mis souri District, which was prolonged through two sessions, vin: From May 11th to May 25th, 1830, and from Decem ber 30th of the same year to January 31st, 1831. The last trial by the Senate was on the impeachment of Judge Hum. phreys, of the Tennessee District, about the year 1863, we think, but the record is not before us." ACQUITTED.-Mr. John Arnold, who was indicted by tle grand jury of this parish for the murder ot Capt. Rufus E. Sewell, in this city, in December last, was tried at the late term of the District Court for the parish of DeSoto, Judge. James I. Weems, presiding, on a ehange of venue, and acquitted.--Bouth- Weters. The coffee-house keepers of New Or 3 leans have raised the price of "drinks" from 15 to 20 cents apiece. SAlways doubt the sincerity of a young - lady when she wipes her month after you kiss her. Struggles give strength. A man or a woman that has never been compelled to struggle hardly has any conception of strength. It is the storm that tests the power and strength of the ship. The world progresses by the workers; in other words, the strugglers. People who think the condition of struggle an a unfortunate one and to be lamented, do i. not see the bearings of life and the best destiny of the race. Think in the midst of your struggles that it in to be the c making of you, and that under it you g. get power and strength. e NOT A REBEL BY CHOICE.-We find a the following going the rounds of the I- press and give it for what it calls for on the face : Alexander I. Stephens, who is now residing in Philadelphia, visited the s Jewish Club House in that city city, a 6 few evenings since, and in response to a call for some remarks, said that only in t the last extremity was he drawn into the rebellion, and that even then heo identified himself with it only that he might further the cause of the Union. that whilst the people would gladly see Mr. Johnson out of the way, ther do not relish the means employed to efect that ' purpose. It also declares that the ac quittal of tlie President would be the ruin of the Repub'ican party. fJean Pantl certainly understood wo ; mankind remarkably well when he said, at "female hearts are like Spanish houses; L- having more doors than windows, it is mt much easier to get into them than to see t into them."
