Cincinnati Israelite (Newspaper) - April 4, 1862, Cincinnati, Ohio
316the israelite. W a i s. Lond to. The treachery is not new which presents the Olive of Neace with one hand and the a a Hemlock cup with the other. Piety not Only forbids contriving mischief against a neigh Bor but enjoins toward him Benevolence of circumstances permit and necessities require. You Ere not then to invade your neighbor us Honor. A Good name is no contemptible treasure the Wise prize it beyond estates As it adorns birth and signifies even reputation is not Atour disposal it can never be transferred by deed or mortgage nor can another claim it. Am i your debtor the Law will Aid but you can Lay no Bill upon my Honor. Rut with what Freedom and Assurance one assails another a reputation As though ii were goods without owner and belonging to the Hist Iii Vader. A i Only jest a says the vilified but though you sport you Stab your victim in Earnest a Fie is my ene my a pays another did you inform your associates of this circumstance you might perhaps enact More and sinless for but few believe an enemy. When tile heart is out of Lune the Tongue is commonly wrong but j of Oil your darts to make them Pierce the deeper and thus employ artifice to second malice and abuse your ingenuity to destroy the innocent. You assume the right to assail the name of him you Call u foe because you lock Power to affront his person. But supposing him an enemy you Are not a professed infidel. A of he Lins failed in duty must you betray truth for passions Sake his impiety can not warrant yours. Revenge belongs to heaven at god s bar then plead your cause and from Ilia judgment expect redress. Look homeward perhaps there you find matter for satire and work for repentance there you May blame without detraction and condemn without sin. Put a senti Uei on your Tongue for ii is a Slippery member and to ugly nature framed it for motion malice has fitted it for mischief and though a child can set it going Etall the Force of reason and checks of conscience scarce suffice to Stop its career. Bemused this puny member sine More limn the whole body must it enjoy uncontrolled Freedom too Oft the distemper is beyond remedy and the radically infected carry the contagion to the Grove. Detraction is a sin end therefore the offender lies under an indispensable obligation of indemnifying he injured person. Now the slanderer rifles his neighbors Honor blasts his reputation and should there a a a fore make Good the loss and of the Tongue is guilty of the theft so should it Render the satisfaction. The wounds of Honor Are healed Only by the instrument that made a Norris this severe for ii is much easier to Blush than Burn Lur a fault. _ we eau not plead custom for though ii May increase guilt it can not possibly Lessen it. Tile disposition we evince to conserve our own lame should be inspired with some tenderness for another a. He is of Well As ourselves acquainted with that. Inestimable trea a sure and is equally unwilling to expose it to the mercy of petulant tongues. An Humble lie Bloch. Amp co., printers 32 sixth is reel Isaac a. Wise editor amp no Raitor. Cincinnati Friday morning april 4, is. Another word on our social relations the strange and condemnable prejudices which turned up against our people Ever since the politicians of the Massachusetts school have come to Power in this country i. E., for tile few last years have been noticed frequently in this journal it being our # a miserable lot to make War to pop piggies. A these prejudices Are not limited of in european countries to the Low bred and illiterate plea then. Y. Times l not ashamed to speak with derision of the a a jew heart1�?T and a the jew and irishman Quot in noticing Yulee of Florida arc the eccentric methodist preacher Brownlow of Tennessee although a firm Union Man could never hide ids prejudices against our people whom he knows not and even Intel in spen Tiogo Benjamin of Louisiana who is now Secretary of state in Jeff. Davis Cabinet Calls him the a Little jew without telling us How Little or big christians Jeff. Davis the members of his Cabinet the senators and representatives of his Congress Are in his methodist estimation. Plenty of proofs to our premises May be found in our columns. If you ask after the cause of this melancholy revelation of heartless humanity we can Only think of one it is the characteristic of Little big men to see somebody beneath themselves. Truly great souls find All the satisfaction they want in themselves and As my is said to Joshua Doest Roe who would give that All the people of the lord were prophets and god would put his spirit upon them so All great men wish to elevate others to their own Eminence. Alexander Humboldt was the most Liberal minded Man for years no petition for progressive and humanizing measures reached rite prussian parliament without the signature of that illustrious Man. Napoleon 111, Victor Emanuel count Caver Are our testimony we need no More. Small men with big pretensions feel it that they Are great Only if others Are very Small therefore they always belittle press Down on somebody to Rise easy above the level. Formerly it was the negro upon whom they trampled with complacency but now they worship his Black majesty a King next they turned know nothings and persecuted dutchmen and irishmen but they Are now too Well represented in the army they must not be touched. Upon whom shall they trample now they select Trio jew. This is the Only imaginable cause of the sudden outbursts of prejudices without the slightest provocation on our part. Ave say a a without the slightest on our part Quot and so it is. The jew of 1s Doun the kingdom of god among Mankind to us it is of particular interest and a particular duty to counteract the prejudices the Myc to by All fair Means at our disposition. We need not say that an open. Frank honest upright and honorable conduct in nil private and Public affair-4 n the very Hest Means to disco fit Al prejudices if not at once still ultimately As everybody knows this. We would propose other Means beside the Abote which have proved and prove it Juer is u8 lonely and deserted by Allie by an Anim scholars we will Pine away in Man addressed us among other things and we owe Bim an answer. Ii Espo la so to e pint in ii. It is hard very hard indeed and mortifying too to be pronounced in Public print a no rabbi a by so High an authority As Tho Rev. Isaac lec scr of Philadelphia it is a bitter Pill to Swallow and will undoubtedly ruin our rabbinical reputation the congregations will address no More Yasui tical not altogether sufficient to vanquish Heliy dra headed monster. In the first place id say. Beware of mortification. Fan Rosy draws horrid pictures like shades pricing from hades to rite any and every prejudice against any human 10 words cd the Rev. Isaac of and jlsg2 is certainly not worse than the confession is no degrading satisfaction if i one of former years. We Are not charged the profession be honorable the practice can i any particular crime or vice that snot raging a thousand fold among the Community at Large. Hungry politicians can not complain that jews deprived Thom of fat offices for while third rate lawyers suddenly Advance to the highest posts of Honor and remuneration tile jew is allowed to vote for them fight for their cause of Bis country and pay taxes. The Christian sects have not on a sudden turned More Christian although no president blessed us yet with so Many Days of fasting prayer repentance or hilarity1�?T and . Therefore we can imagine no other cause of the state of affairs than the one stated above. The disease must be known to everybody who reads. The remedies Are to be pointed out. Philanthropists in general and the a friends of Israel if particular should think never be otherwise. If you Blush not to wound your neighbors Fame feel not ashamed to heal it. Sin should be accompanied by infamy As Well As remorse and penitence be wailed on by glory and Honor but strange the tables Are turned shame to repentance and Eulogy to sin. The difference Between evil men and Good lies not in the esteem of virtue but the practice. Do not say that fear is clownish and an effeminate weakness but cowardice and Jear Are Ayno Normous neither in philosophy nor morals. That is always a vice Ihu ofttimes a virtue. When prudence commands fear boldness is temerity and Folly. It is cowardice to despond and succumb to danger which valor can subdue but it is rashness to contend with a Power above human Force. The principles of men opposing these maxims Are As Rotten As their practices Are impure. The use of of it efficient Means counteract that miserable speech has so jts original institution that it is become no a a a a snare. The speaking faculty in some appears More a penalty than a prerogative and though if diverted of it they would he unfilled for the conversation yet it would leave them More innocent. Now whether our alumni actors anticipate salvation or not. Is a question their Hopes anti desires appear to Compass Only the present world. Be tender then. Of another a name. The voice of nature says i do unto another As you would have Bim do unto you. A How equitable this admonition. Avoid a mischief entailing incalculable disasters on another. You Are advised in. I. Permit a lit tie As possible to reach your ears prejudicial to another. Eve attended die first slanderer which Are # a Quot a Universal. Impulse Given from above and threatening to Riff Estther people i Ike a contagion. Improved detrimental to the Public welfare to estrange one class of people from another Community. By this policy a a Divide and Rule Quot the tyrants of All centuries and lands ruled. As we feel a natural aversion to All 4 a a prejudices we suspect All. Men effected by them of impure and unworthy motive especially the literate Man thus effected is a i. A a suspicious. Well then Nae to speak of Good morals Justice or Honor viewing our. Case Only in the Light of patriotism it be a i. 1 g % comes the duty of every citizen to oppose effectually every existing prejudice which estranged men and citizens. A a a a but a i it us who. Profess Judaism and Hope our children will follow in the foot print of being. Ii such pro jul ices exist among , discard them. The holy spark of divinity which god breathed into every human Frame the heavenly gift of humanity with which lie imbued every person claim our respect kindness and veneration for gods master work. None is sunk so Low that his heavenly nobility that divine spark feh Ould have completely deserted him. If others commit sins on us we should learn of them to be tree of such vices. The wicked in a teacher and wickedness is a lesson to the Good to learn tile right appreciation of virtue. Vengeance is human forgiveness is Noble to invigorate our hearts in virtue by the vice committed on us is the Eminence of human greatness. So be and educate your children. Let them he citizens of the world Brethren to the human race. Shall we say it again withdraw your children As much As possible from Commerce will you not accuse us of useless repetition ? we must say it again in is too important for the rising and the unborn generations for the future of our race and our religion in this land with its immeasurable future greatness. We must say it again the i retch Huber Foulds rothschilds and All the other princes of finance did not move from us an Inch of the rubbish prejudices heaped on our devoted Heads no they Bro to on us tile monster of envy. Great men with powerful pins men great at the University on the Bench of Justice at tire bedside of the suffering patient in the pulpit in the teach Era Sohair men renowned in the literature of their respective countries simple mechanics we say. Have done that herculean work in Europe. Let us have men in All branches of science and Trade let our innate talents be turned to the different occupations of the citizen Aud prejudices will vanish As tile Mist before the rising Sun. Be americanized is another advice we would give to our friends. We must be no a Turkali Ednot Only in the political the word but also in its social signification.

A gentleman from Down South a or 11 out West make no difference to the Reader writer us a Long epistle on different mutters and things from which we take the following passages to respond properly to them Quot Confidence in your competency must naturally be undermined the Rev. Isaac looser lately stated in a Philadelphia journal thatch knows not whether you Are an authorized rabbi he knows not who authorized a you to assume that title nor has he 3con. query is that the Only tiling the Rev.

But do not care for our Humble self. The congregation however of Cincinnati Albany and else there who elected us their rabbi and those to whom we preached they ought be ashamed of themselves to have been thus imposed upon and that too by a Man who never reflects always acts by impulse. To them we have to say Rise and defend a our Honor your judgment your understanding. But no m them not Rise the Rev. Isaac lecher might swoon away on seeing such a Large Cengr a Ion not being used to such multitudes. God Only knows what evil effect it might have pm Liim tand the fault would be All ours. An ampule just now tells should no risk so hazardous game against an innocent old Man. But what shall we do in flus Case shall we Send our diploma to the Rev. Isaac lecher fur inspection and ratification lie can not rent ten in. They Are All written in that awkward rabbinical hebrew without Vowel Points that the Rev. Isaac Lees it would Only consider it an ,if they were offered to him to be read. Shall we publish them in the newspapers that would look like vain show As All the diplomas of tins kind Are written in the Oriental style and taste overloaded with High sounding titles and Eulogy. We Are bewildered do not know How to come out of this dilemma Are perfectly at a loss what to comes an impulse use arriving from dreamland coining in hot Basto and telling us a do nothing,1&Quot like Ever so Many reverend gentlemen and to obey we stand then a.

There you have the evidence that we Are highly Learned but the other Day to o pretty girls both graduates of the female College and a very respectable Matron who has the Best encyclopedia in her Library toll us remember All three or them told us unanimously that we arc a great scholar a highly Learned Man a doctor of doctors and should open an Academy for the instruction of professors for the different collegiate institutes of Theroun try. Now whoever said we Are a a no scholar Quot offended the ladies and some Cavalier of Honor should chastise that impertinent # a Man before the women take revenge on him with their Needles pins scissors and darting looks of fire.
