WASHINGTON'S THANKS. His Letter to the Newport Congregation Writ ten More Than a Hundred Years Ago. To the Hebrew Congregation in Newport, Rhode Island: Gentlemen :—While I receive with much satisfaction your address, replete with expres sions of affection and esteem, I rejoice in the opportunity of assuring you that I shall always retain a gratfnl remembrance of the cordial welcome I experienced in my visit to Newport, from all classes of citizens. The reflection on the days of difficulty and danger which are past is rendered more sweet from a conscious ness that they are succeeded by days of uncom mon prosperity and security. If we have wisdom to make the best use of the advantage with which we are now favored, we cannot fail, under the just administration of a good government, to become a great and happy people. The citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and iberal policy —a policy worthy of imitation. All possess alike liberty of conscience and im munities of citizenship. It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily the government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no san ction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themaelves as good citizens, in giving it, on all occasions, their effectual support. It would be so inconsistent with the frank ness ot my character not to avow that I am pleased with your favorable opinion of my ad ministration and fervent wishes for my felicity. May the children of the stock of Abraham who dwell in this land continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other inhabit an tf—while every one shall-sit in safety under his o*n vine and fig-tree, and there shall be none to make him afraid. May the father of all Mercies scatter light and not darkness in our paths, and make us all in our several vocations useful here, and, in His own due time and way, everlastingly happy. G. Washington. WELL WORTH READING. " Moeb LIGHT. "—-I rational treatise on BibU cal subjects. Under this head, Rabbi L. Weiss, of Colum bus, Ga., has* sent forth a little volume into the world. Its pages contain answers to the most striking and important questions of Judaism and Christianity. Its purpose is, as the author himself says, in hia introduction "to inform the intelligent Christian of the position of Jews in relation to Jesus of Nazareth, hia rejection, his crucifixion, the conversion theory, hope in the Messiah, belief in devil and hell, etc" The answers are necessarily brief, aa within forty three pages, the author touches upon not only the subjects mentioned above, bnt gives a chapter each to the questions, "What shall I do to be saved," " Does God visit the sins of * parents upon their children?" "Doesscrip ture fortell Israel's condition aa it ia and ever will be ? " wd " Which ia the true religion?" The author shows a thorough and compre hensive acquaintance with both the Old and New Testaments, and brings the authors them selves of the Christian gospels to disprove many of the assertions made by tbeir followers. The book is valuable for its many references upon the all-interesting topics enumerated, and for the numerous suggestions which can not tail to rise in the mind of the earnest reader. The style is terse, not a single weed is wasted, yet lucid enough for any reader. The Bloch Publishing and Printing Co., Cincinnati, publish the book and have put upon it the nominal price of fifty cents. RICHMOND MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE CO. Mention of the organization ofthe "Rich mond Mutual Fire Insurance Co." has been made in some of the daily papers, and as much interest has been manifested in it, we have inquired into the leading features of this com pany, so that we might inform our readers re garding it, and find that, instead of taking pledges of individual policy holders, that, if necessary to pay losses, they would agree to pay several times the amount of their pre miums, the Company was formed by stock holders, the amount of dividend on the stock being limited by the charter and the insurers pay the usual premium which is the limit of their liability, but they participate in the profits of the Company, and as Richmond has always been a profitable field for fire insurance, even before the recent increase of insurance rates, it is probable that the policy-holders will receive large dividends.
