FRIDAY May 2. 187i.
The Jews of the United States are
inaugurating a movement for the es
tablishment of agricultural colonies in
the west and south. It s a remarka
ble departure for this people to un
dertake. Such a person as a Hebrew
farmer is hardly known in the history
of this country. The subject of col
onization was 6rst discussed at the
annual convention of Hebrew congre
gations at Cincinnati, last summer.
On that occasion a committee was ap
pointed to further consider the mat
ter. This committee has reported
that, in their opinion, the true eman
cipation of Jews consists in the greater
infusion of a spirit of manhood and
self-dependence, which can best be
done by encouraging the nrilions of
Israelites dwell:ng in eastern and
southern Europe to become farmers
and mechanics. The committea points
to the broad, free acres of the west,
ready to yield untold wealth, and to
impart to millions of Jews that spirit
of true independence that the owner
and tiller of the soil always enjoys.
The Jews of this country and of all
countries are of a patient, preseverin,
tireless nature. In trade they are
close, active, sharp and successful.
Centuries of persecution have failed to
break either spirit or ambition. Their
physical and mental endurance is
something wonderful. They slowly
emerge from the bondage of ages, and
their representatives control the treas
uries of the most powerful c'vilized
governments of the world, direct their
grandest commercial enterprises, dic
tate international treaties, and the
foreign and home politics of nations.
Looking at the vast accomplishments
of this remarkable race of people in
other directions, what may we not be
prepared to see them do in this new
field to which they now tnrn. We
predict for Jewish agriculture in

The daughter of Mayor Jonea
of Toledo, Ohio, eloped in a singu
lar and sad manner. Mr. Jones!
had repeatedly been chosen chief
magistrate of his city, and is a man
of wealth and high respectability.
The daughter, now 20 years old,
graduated at the head of her class
in the Toledo high school at 1G, and
was regarded as one of the most
accomplished girls in Ohio. She
was a pius Roman Catholic, un
til converted bv a former school
male to believe in the doctrine of
perfection ism, as taught by a sect
of communistic Free Methodists.
She was so influenced by this new
faith that she discarded the lover
to whom she was engaged, intend
ing to wait until she could choose
a husband spiritually suited to her.
At length she became insane, and
was kept awhile in an asylum,
where the friend who had won her
to perfectionism was also confined.
Both were subsequently released,,
apparently cured. Lately Miss
Jones was visited by Sheridm
Waite of Fort Edward, New York,
who brought a letter of introduc
tion from her friend, in which he
was described as the man above
oil others for her to marrv. Al
though Waite was an ugly young
fellow, Miss Jones unhesitatingly
accepted him, religious mania at
once repossessing her. His con
duct then and afterward indicates
that he was equally crazy. They
eloped together, and travelled
from place to place until, in Jones
ville, Mich., they found a clergy
man willing to marry them. A
physician saw them, recognized
the bride, and was convinced of
' 1 TT 1
tne insanity oi tne pair, ue tele
graphed to Maj-or Jones, who has
regained his daughter.

success that shall be the marvel of
agricultural history. With the He
brews once fairly enlisted, we shall
jsee farming prosecuted as a business,
with a thoroughness and success here
tofore unknown either abroad or at
home. The movement, as we said be
fore, is an entire new departure in the
industrial habits of the Hebrew race,
as it has existed for centuries, but it
is to be remembered that it is but a re
t turn to the life and work of the forefathers.
Steps have been taken, at "Wash-ir-ton,

So far the colored emigrants have
-not found Kansas the land of honey
it was represented to be. They have
landed in large numbers at Wyandotte,
. Rnd have no other resources than the
charity of strangers. Wyandotte is a
'flourishing town in the county of the
..same name, at the confluence of the
-Missouri and Kansas rivers, and,
while generally in favor of immigra
tion, is not prepared to give food and
shelter to the thousands of blacks re
ported to be on their way to that state.
.The condition of the emigrant is
-pitiable. Kansas is a colder climate
than they are accustomed to, and pri
vation and exposure have already
caused a number of deaths. What
ever measures may be taken for pres
ent relief, emigration in such large
numbers should be discouraged. Emi
gration should be gradual even under
..favorable circumstances. If the bulk
of the laboring population of large
-districts iu one state are suddenly
transferred to another state, the effects
fire-bad in both. While the Missis
. atppi planters are threatened with ruin
for the lack of laborers, towns in Kan
.t&& are overrun with laborers, for
yfhnm there is no work. The move
ment of the colored race north would
be a healthful indication of enterprise
.ifjtwere conducred with discretion;
but-from present indications the im
mediate results will be injurious to
the interests of both races.
