In the course of a conversation on religion several nights ago, participated in among others by three Richmond policemen, each of the officers gave it as his opinion that so far as he knew there was not a person in the city who does not believe in God. There are no set of men in the community better acquainted with the people than the guardians of the peace. A good portion of the time they see a great deal of the worst element under the most unfavorable conditions. Under these circumstances such an opinion from such a quarter affords no little food for I reflection. One thing however is proven, if there are any infidels in Richmond they are not given to expressing their views. Watch Your Mutton. There was brought to the office of The Jew ish South yesterday a piece of the intestines of a sheep, on which were a number of pro tuberances, apparently of a tubercular na ture. The portion in question was taken from a sheep which had died about twenty-five miles below Richmond, where it is said quite a number of them are affected in the same waj. This is but another evidence of the fact that the schochet is not a superfluity even in this enlightened day, and that the passage of a law providing for the compulsory inspection of ITEMS OF INTEREST.

All kinds of Mineral Waters on Both in biblical and post-biblical times Judaism was more deeply concerned with practical than with doctrine. Upon the the oretical side religious imagination excercised an unfettered play ; there was no crystalli_a tion into dogma, no formal delimitation of creed. J ndaism remained for a long time very simple, and withal very incoherent | Its doctrines were inarticulate, almost chao tic ; ita conception of God was full of contra dictions. It needed accommodation and read j astment as soon aa it came in contract with and claimed to satisfy a philosophical trained I intelligence. But it was fully able to quicken and to satisfy the religious aspirations ef ordi nary men. We can see now that one part of their re ligion was inconsistent with another ; hut un perceived inconsistencies did not prevent their religious ideas from becoming and producing for them all that lew jarring and incongruous doc trines can produce or become for ourselves. Is any permanent reform of Judaism within the limits of possibility? Can Judaism bust the bonds of legalism and particularism and I remain Judaism still ? That is a question tor the future to answer, and for the future alone. It may he that those who dream of a prophetic Judaism, which shall he as spiritual as the religion of Jesus, and even more universal than the religion of Paul, are the victims of delusion. But, at any rate, the labor which they may give and the fidelity which they may show to thin delusion cannot be thrown away. They will not be the only men who have worked for a delusion and yet have benefitted the world. For their devotion to the cause of an imaginary Judaism remains devoted to the cause of God.— HShbeH Lecture*, Montefiorr. Sleeping In Church. "Some men preach," said Sydney Smith, "as if they thought sin is to be taken out of a r__n as Eve was taken out of Adam, by cast ing him into a profound slumber." So at any rate thought not South, who, preaching one day at Whitehall, observed King Charles II and several of his attendants asleep. Stooping down, he cried out to one of the delinquents, " My lord, I am sorry to interrupt you, but if you snore so loud you will wake the king." His majesty thereupon awoke, and turning to his neighbor remarked with his accustomed good nature, "This man must he made a hie hop; remind me on the next vacancy."
