Over a hundred inti mate friends and relatives of the couple wit nessed the ceremony, which wae performed by Rabbi E. N. Calisch. The decorations in the hall where the couple plighted their troth were of the most tasteful and beautiful order. There was a pretty white altar, and a profusion of palms, feme, and floral ornaments added richness to the picture. Professor Thilow's orchestra furnished music for the occasion, and during the ceremony the musicians filled the air with sweet, low strains. Mr. Mord Foote, of Atlanta, a brother of tbe groom, acted as beet man. sntf n»— <*.rrt_ Strauss, of Baltimore, was the maid of honor. The ushers were Messrs. Leon M. and W. B.

Beth Shalome it Fifth. Last week we were disposed to claim tbat the Beth Shalome Congregation of Richmond is the fourth oldest in the United States Since that time we have received the follow ing from Rabbi Mendes of Savannah, which shows we were in errs. " When yon were in Savannah, I did men tion to yon the fact, that "Beth Shalome" was the fourth oldest Congregation in the Uni ted States. I was under that impression at the time, bnt from recent research I find I was mistaken. The years of organization of the different Congregations are, Newport, 1658 ; New York, about 1710 ; Savannah, 1733; Philadelphia, 1782; Richmond and Charleston, 1791. Lancaster Pa. claims to be one of the oldest Congregation in the States, but I an unable just now to say how much justice there is in their claim. Yon are right, my love for my old Charge "Beth Shalome," is still in my In art, and I would not knowingly do the dear old Congre gation an injustice." The dates given by Rabbi Mendes are un doubtedly correct, for they are indentically the same as those given by RaMns Lyons and De Sola in their Jewish Almanac published in 1854. This book is also silent on the age of the Lancaster congregation and we would be glad to have something definite and authentic am to that organization. Petersburg. Miss Grace Kail left for Baltimore last Sun day, to spend the winter in that city. A Channukah festival is under preparation by the Sunday-school children and will be given in all probability on Sunday, December 11th.

Rising to thk Occasion.—Mr. Pahncks, the eminent tragedian, paused a moment, folded his arms, and contemplated with set lips the howling mob in the gallery. Then he spoke. "No! " he shouted, in a voice that smo'hered the din like the crashing of a thunderbolt into a pack of exploding firecrackers "I am not to be put down by noise ! This is a case where ' similia similibus curantur' won't work." And he went on as before, annncured ranter.
