1 Noble Br nrfarlion.
A tchWtam from Vudah-Pesth to a Frank
fort inurnml states that Baron llirsch has de
cided to distribute 100,lRi(,lHKIfrauc,or about
J JO.lHHJ.tKtO, among all eustiug Luropeau
Jewish charitable institutions.
Since Shakespeare drew his picture of Shv-
lock tho world has had to correct the portrait
many times and nuder umny conditions, some
of which, were the contrast drawn, would not
redound especial Iv to the glory and honor of
the Oi utile. It may be assumed that at the
present day, among intelligent uud educated
people, the fierce and liur.asouing hostility
which once existed against the Jews as a race
hh died out aud that they are on precisely
the same plaue aa any other people, saving,
perhaps, a feeelng of their being still aliens,
winch they themselves encourage, or at least
do not try to discourage.
It is certain that in works of cbaiity and .
benevolence, slid especially to those who are
ot tin' sf&l of Abraham, the Jew sets an ex
amide which niav be counted but cannot -die
I'rxci lied by people of other blood and other
faiths. I harity, particularly mat cliarity
which rightly begins at home, is a cardinal
virtue with the Israelites, and one which be
does not sutler to grow rusty or worn out by
disuse. There Are no more complete or bet
ter organized or more useful charitable or
benevolent institutions iu the United States
than those of the Israelites, and noun where
less distinction of class or rank is ohaetved.
They are model institutions of the kind, and
it is a bright jewel iu the crowu of the mod
ern Jews iu America that they are well aud
lhe condition ol the Jews Iu some Parts ot
Europe, nnd especially iu certain of the Rus
sian provinces, is deplorable. They have
beau ostracised nnd persecuted with a rancor
which is more befitting tho Dark Ages than
the close of the niut tuouth century. The
Russian government, or at least the depart
mental governments, have hot hesitated to
proscribe them, to exile them nnd to confis
cate their property, reducing many of them
whose sole crime was their religion, to penu
ry and destitution.
It is doubtless to the relief of man; of these
unhappy people that a portion of Baron
Hirsch's uiuuitlceut charity will be extended,
as his secretary has been dispatched to Rus
sia to begin the distribution of the fund.
The imiueusity of that fund is almost be
yond the powei of conception. To think of
$20,(100,000 being given to this single pur
pose strikes us with admiration and amaze
ment, The good that such nn enormous
amount of money can do is incalculable, the
amount of suffering it will relieve beyond
computation. Baron llirsch is to be com
mended for his prudence, as well us his mar-
vulous generosity, in being the administrator
of his benillceuce, instead of waiting to have
this gigantic- sum distributed by his executors,
In this way it will lie. done in accordance
with his wishes, and thoroughly ami system
utically, as it might not bo dnue otherwise,
Barou Hirsch certainly merits a civic crowu
not alone from his coreligiouists, but from
all who believe iu the virtues of charity aud

Ono day, after listening patiently to a cer

brought down not only tue thrush, but

wheu I pull.d the trigger this hawk, which
was also out hunting, had swooped down
upon the thrush, and in conseqence the one
shot had dons for both birds. But that was
not all. The report of my gua had scared

The Rev. J. Hyatt Smith, once pastor of
the Second Reformed church, at l'23d street
sud Sixth aveiiuo, New York city, in a ser-
mon ou infidelity, stated that at one time,
years sgn, thirty-six men residing in New
burgh banded themselves together as a soci
etv of infidels, recognizing no Ood, snd de
fying His power if there was any. They
baptised A cat, slid gave the holy communion
to a dog. Within a period of five years escb
and every oue of the thirty-six hail met his
death iu sn unnatural manner. On investi
gation it has been found that the society was
instituted nearly hall a century ago. Near
the entrance to the tiresent NewbiiruhTriuitv
church stood A partly decayed tree, in the
hollow ol which the immersion of the cat
look place. The stutement in regard to the
full txterminalion of the society within fivs
tears is true. The entire thirty-six met with
unnatural deaths seven of the number com
mitted suicide and five were killed in railroad
accidents, lhe others coming to an nntiinely
end in various manners. Many older resi
dents remember the circumstances of the in
stitution and the extermination of the society
quite well. Albany, N. Y., Argus.
