We thank our sages for it who led by god s spirit found the right sense of the Laws and their teachings again give Rich material for further investigations and at the same time afford tile measure to the judgment of All new renderings that is As the correspond with them then Good or oppose them then Are in .error.�?T1 a a that i do not mean a rejoined Rabudal a much More i hold that by a True Progress also much which before was held for knowledge May lose its value for the present. Thereby the Merit of previous investigators is in no Wise depreciated for every one is praiseworthy wha from his stand seeks for knowledge in that manner i which in is possible for him. Even through these exertion he raises the following race to a higher degree from whence the is a More extensive and deserves a great Deal which until then was concealed a which makes the previously discovered useless for in i the . 41 according to that it might occur Quot expostulated rabbi Jacob 14 that that might appear false to me to Morrow which j have to Day held fur Correct. What a religion would that be which would show itself so Uncertain no my Friend Only word in sciences is Good proves what you have said and Here it is unconditionally 41 also not unconditionally Quot said rabbi Nehemia out of respect to the speaker but gently to jus sen. 14 you have remarked Rab a by Jacob who in spite of this caution had heard him interrupting by addressed him. 44 Pardon the interruption a responded Nehemia 11 but it is not even Good in math. Matiee in which indeed one May discover new tilings but never can refute the old for Don Joseph certainly thought of refutation when lie spoke of the uselessness of the 41 Well do you see now a rabbi Jacob continued a a even in the positive sciences a such innovations Are not suffered Bow much less then in 44 nevertheless something appears to Lay just in religion which summons to efforts of this nature Quot opposed Jensen 41 and indeed a not alone in our but in All religions generally. I can nut closer describe this something but it is positively there for just the most pious the Best people who were real by convinced of their belief stepped Forth with new teachings which contradicted the old. Perhaps they were involved in error a ibis is possible but they intended no tres Paes they meant it Well and if their views were false religion must yet have furnished the possibility an interpretation. A do you know that in our Days anew teaching has been promulgated in christianity which already Lins found great adherents and daily spreads further. Have you heard nothing of petres Waldus of Lyon Quot 14 yes certainly Quot responded rabbi Salt cob a a yet i have paid no further attention to 14 As True As i live Quot cried Benedict.

And who always ventures to distinguish them in the usages Yea see a covering do you al<6 certainly know that you see Correct How of however so and nut otherwise they should be required of god until now at least every one who has conscientiously observed them has Felt the blessed Consolation of having Practised an action pleasing to god.

Two years ago we gave an account of the hebrew books in the british1 museum pro 0 Perly arranged and classified by Herr Joseph Zedner attached to this great National establishment. Oar attention has now been a 0 attracted by an account of Thestine Library a a. From the pen of Uever Zedner Hir self in the a a Masker which we find so interesting that we Transfer it to our columns. The gentleman referred to says a when in january j too the British m museum consisting of 50,000 vol., was first thrown open to the Public rabbinical literature was Asi seems represented in it by one single work a the Amitio or weeps of the talmud. But already a few months afterwards a jewish merchant who had immigrated fifty years before from Holland s. A Costa presented to the museum a collection of Iso valuable rabbinical works in order to testify his gratitude for the tolerance prevailing in ids adopted country. These works however would but for an accidental a circumstance a have found their Way thither before that time. The circumstance that the bindings bore Tho initials of Charles in intimates that the books were originally intended for him a probably by the jewish Community Oil tot gratitude loathe privileges granted to them but came into private hands owing to his Cath which had in the interim taken it is right the observe that the libraries of All monarchs since Hep by Yih. Have Bee incorporated with the British museum the edition of the talmud referred to having belonged to the Library of finry Yll the example of the Well intentioned donor found no imitators. The collection containing several rare and unique works remained unknown even to Learned inquirers and the increase of Hebro works from that period to our own amounting to about 600 volumes generally consists of editions of tie Bible mostly purchased from the Large a m Library the Duke of Sussex. Besi Dethero were also acquired several valuable my Una Lilia and impressions on Parchment. When it however had Vecuna evident in i vols. Through the Purchase of h. Michael s ? n v a i u Able Jibrin by Long be fore in no Imas one of the largest collections of books in this department in the hands of apr Cate individual that the British museum to rival in this Branch the largest existing libraries attention was at once paid to a regular increase partly by procuring All new works partly by supplying what was missing in the elder literature both by making purchases at auctions and by providing foreign agents with the list of works required. Thus within the last ten years about 2500 volumes have been added and when subsequently through the enlargement of the area an obstacle also much Felt in other departments had been removed it became practicable this year ts59. Exactly a Century after a Costa a present to proceed to the proper arrangement of Che hebrew books and putting them in order. The new i locality forming a distinct portion of the narrow internal space glazed in parallel with the Quot Kings Library a is 51 feet Long and 12 1-2 feet High so divided according to height by a the repositories 84 in number should he within an easy reach both from the top and the Bottom. In the arrangement in which the future increase was kept in View size has been taken into account. In every shelf moreover the alphabetical order marked on the backs was followed. When. There were several editions of the same work the chronological order was observed. The i vision is even marked according to Content a 9 in the color of the binding in the sub Divi Sion by the Back. Containing the titles both in hebrew and English. Moreover the Library number la marked on the Back by a threefold Chiffie. The following arc the principal divisions Bible talmud Kabbala and other branches of literature. Of bibles with or without commentaries there Are 722 volume of biblical commentaries 417 of the talmud 574 of Tai in Adieu commentaries Cio rabbinical decisions 1050 official rabbinical opinions 450 Midra?h,-135 Kabbala so discourses 346, Liturgy 346 philosophy 556, gun Nipar and educational works. 47u geography history and biography 248 poetry criticism and periodicals 560.

Nor Arn there contained in it unique works copies of very rare and ancient editions or impressions on Parchment which about 300 in number Are placed Ina separate Case. Polyglots and Hooks belonging to special collections arc likewise a excluded from this to so chronicle is a touch of the Quot country Parson Quot which will be Light or heavy to an unhappy class of men according to guilt. Those who have but slightly erred in this direction will feel it but those who bae sinned in this Way constantly and determinedly will As they deserve fee in deeply 44 what i con Trau is envious malignant detraction with its train of wilful misrepresentation sly innuendoes depreciating shrugs nod nods. I hate to hear a Mao speak in terms of taint Praise of another who has outstripped him in their common profession saying that he is a 1 rather lever lad a that he 4 really has some Talent that he is 4 not wholly devoid of Power a that he a has done better than could Hie expected a and the like. O that we could All learn to acknowledge wit i frankness and heartiness the Merit that overtop us done to Jet us try to pull Down. Read with pleasure the essay which you feel is far better than you could have written listen with improvement Teeth Sermon which you feel is far better than you could have preached. I think envy Distant feeling. In a True heart it can not live when you Havo come to know the envied Man Well. It is in our nature to like the Man who surpassed us when a Tarn a 9 we come to know bit. Perhaps it Tsimpos a a is Hie to look at Merit or Success in our own Peculiar line without making an involuntary comparison Between these Ardour own perhaps it is natural to fancy our ground rings have hardly As yet. Met the a appreciation they deserved. A but i do not believe it is natural except in men of very bad Nav 0 0 a a a i lures to cherish any other feeling than a kindly one toward Tho Man Quot whose Powers Are so Superior to ours that with hardly an apparent Effort he beats us far As eclipse beat his co Peers in Tho Especial walk of our own tastes and talents when we have done our most laborious and our of Home. The most eminent St temen of our country have been most distinguished tor their love of Home. It was a Delight for them to retire from the cares of Public life not to the luxuries and excitement of City life but to the quiet and simple pleasures of a Rural Home. The Strong love of Washington for mount Vernon and of Henry Clay for Ashland is Well known and Webster testifies the same feeling in the following passage a it is Only shallow minded pretenders who either origin a matter of personal Merit or an obscure origin a matter of personal reproach. Taunt and scoffing at the Humble condition of Early life affects nobody in this country but those who Are foolish enough to indulge in them and they Are generally sufficiently punished by the published rebuke. A min who is not ashamed of himself need not be ashamed of Iii Early condition. A it did not happen to me to be born in a log Cabin but my elder brother and Sisters were born in a lug Cabin raised among the Snow drifts of new Hampshire at a period so Early that when the smoke first Rose from its rude Chimney it curled Over the Frozen h ill there was no sign of a White Many a habitation Between it and the settlements on the Rivers of Canada. Its remains still exist. I make it an annual \ nutation. I carry my children to it to teach them Tho hardships in endured by the generations which have gone before them. I line to dwell on the tender recollection tile Kindred tirs die Early affections and the narrations and incidents which mingle with All i know of this primitive family abode. I weep to think that none of those w to inhabited it arc now among die living and if Ever i tail in affectionate veneration Lur him who irises it find defend god it against Savage violence and destruction. Cherished All the Domestic Virtues beneath its roof and through the fire and blood of seven years revolutionary War shrank from no toil no sacrifice to serve his country and to raise ids children to a condition better than his own May my name and the name of my posterity be blotted forever from the memory of Mankind Quot it s no no shame Quot paid a daughter of Erin us she loaded her two country women with chairs they had just # bought. As we journeyed homeward to could not help thinking that this poor woman had a More Correct idea of the nobility of labor than Many of our Young people who Are More conversant with a Legendre Quot than the Art of making Home Happy. Yes god s Fiat has ordained it and a a it a no shame to its very necessity is written on the brow of our destiny hence any violation of this great ordinance of heaven for human improvement brings its own punishment i ii it. Whence All this ennui that so annoys Young gentlemen and ladies of the present Dav ? is it not the pleading of god s Law in your own organization is it not a voice calling for action in your own Homes and in the dwellings of mural mental and physical want even fit be True that there exists no necessity for daily toil on your part to sustain life yet others do hear that voice behind them crying a work or starve Quot and we will be much happier if we make the worlds Burden lighter. J care Doe in what direction your energies May be expended honest labor is no disgrace. A want of Faith in Xii is truism has produced More moral obliquity than almost any other cause without it be intemperance mid in pome cases it has Given birth to Tho love of Strong drink. What a vast amount of actual want As Well As Bob faced crime in been caused by persons having Given wrong views upon this subject. How Many have Blade an Effort to keep up an appearance of wealth where none existed and want and crime s of have been the result of the deception.
