It was really amusing and instructive to watch the different gestures and hear the several cautious questions which he direct divers expressions of these men one would ted to citizens elicited the information that an old woman had also been taken away a a with the Maiden and it became certain to him that this was his Mother. Now the a conversation Between those two terrible women in the burning House became intelligible to him and be was convinced that the Knight had committed the crime. But whither had they taken the abducted women a Owen roved about for a week in the neighbourhood. All researches were in vain. He returned exhausted to York and anxiously awaited an Opportunity to get into the Castle As he hoped to obtain some explanation from chateau Gray s troopers. Fortune led him to that trooper who had stolen into a Udall a Dungeon. one did not know Tho name of the captive but Owen Felt certain it could be no other. Do away with one thing one with another thing our dry goods Man however shrugging his shoulders and shaking his head would continually remark a Weill done to know one would be reconciled to do away with circumcision altogether and emphatically remarked should his next child be a boy be would certainly not have it circumcised since that time however his wife gave birth to a bouncing Little girl. The other thought since All of Bis boys had that ceremony performed on them he would not like to make a distinction but our i Uke War in shoulder shrugging Man would than his father had done before him and would under no consideration risk it to make such an innovation. Now it was the turn of the lady who had the trooper gave Bim the information of All this time calmly pleasingly plied Lier Jossens death and the desperate condition Needle to give her opinion and with Anima of the besieged hebrews.

The ground gave Way under him and he Sank Down a considerable depth which to his Fortune led perpendicularly downward. At his cries his companions ran to thespot but As they did not see him and believed he was teasing them they Wen away again. Meanwhile he had recovered from his fright and climbed upwards. He rejoiced at the astonishment of his companions who could not discover his place of concealment and concluded also to make use of the discovery he had made in his future plays. By this Means he became so accustomed to the dark subterranean resort that the desire finally came upon him to become better acquainted with the place. Being a courageous bold youth he carried out his determination and did not let it frighten him away when the dark narrow path in which the air was oppressive led still fur ther into the depth. Below the path became Broad and airy and a Bright Glimmer beamed upon him which As he discovered by advancing came through grated openings through which he viewed a High building which was strange to him. Finally he reached a stairway which led to the roof of the passage where it ended at a trap door. After some exertion he succeeded in raising this and now he found himself in a dark apartment. His curiosity led. Him after a Ray of Light into Broad apartments which he recognized As part of Jav Cehan by the grated windows above in which he finally came to a locked Iron door. Now he started on Bis return closing the Cap door again. In childish Pride at his undertaking which had placed him in Possession of a secret he kept his discovery strictly silent although Harac ked his mind by thinking where the building might be which he bad seen through the openings. Only in later years did he perceive that the secret passage must Lead to the decayed Wing of the Castle.

York july 16, 1862. Editor of the israelite a a what news is everywhere ejaculated what has transpired is everywhere asked for in such precarious times As these amid the Bustle of War Many a mind is aroused to Bear of daring adventures to read of Good and Noble acts. And amid All this confusion allo to to present to your readers a Short account of an examination in the sunday school connected with the u sunday the 13th inst was the Day appointed on which the examination was to take that school the Rev or Adler is the principal messes. J. Wiener and j. Walz his assistants. The school Hab been and is under the Best management possible having teachers worthy of their s situation to impart a thorough knowl. Edge of our religion to th9 Young. As i have said sunday was the Day Sot apart for the examination. It would be useless for me to go into detail1 and narrate each particular event that happened but let it suffice in my informing you that the examination passed off very beautifully much to the satisfaction of All present. It was clearly evident that one and All improved since last years examination a and have acquitted themselves Well on the subjects on which they were examined. A in this school every thing has been done to increase the desire of learning on the part of the Young and they appreciate it and Are benefited accordingly. A on every Ope a a Aion there Are several scholars who wore More a in m proficient and those scholars were recompensed in receiving Small prizes. Several remarks were also made by the following gentleman. A messes a. Stein chairman pro. Tem. In absence of , r. I. De Cordora and others who very eloquently expressed their entire satisfaction and in words of on our. W 0 a gement cheered them Onward to continue and learn As they had commenced. There wore also various certificates distributed and i have no doubt that some of the receivers of. The latter appreciable tokens will strive hard to obtain a prize next year to show that they have not worked in next there was Nounou a Cement made which gladdened the hearts scholars More Portsmouth 0., july to 1862. The position of ministers. A. M in in a a a. A a a i have read with communication of or. Loewenthal in the last number of the israelite. He Points out and Speaks of an evil inasmuch As it concerns ministers of our Faith and asks the Learned editor of Tho israelite who Bas done already so much for our religion whether he knows no measure which can to taken for a better change. The statement alluded to in that communication of the disagreeable position in which so Many ministers Are placed in consequence of being so often compelled to move from place to place is not exaggerated but True to the very letter. I state a positive truth Here when i assert that no office which a hold in this country is More Uncertain and unreliable than the office of a minister. It can not be strange to anybody who is acquainted with causes and effects that to Day a minister i will Combine the functions of Lazau Sho Cliet teacher Mohel etc., All in the one word although a vast majority who fill such an office deserve not the name can be in Good Grace with his congregation and to Morrow a majority of his constituents Are against him and desire his disposal. Small congregations i think Are harder even to please than the Large ones because at the former everybody wishes to exercise a certain influence while in a Large congregation the voice of one is not of much weight. The congregations of America Are composed of members who Hail from All parts of tile world from Wilence they bring their Peculiar manners customs etc., which they seek to transplant into the regions of their respective Homes not knowing that the soil can not to alike productive of the same fruits. This is in the first place a sufficient reason Why the minister often can not please if he pays no regard to All these customs habits etc., of his constituents he must naturally fall into disgrace with some members and As soon As his engagement terminates he has to look out for another place if lie can obtain one if not no Ono cares for it. 44 help yourself Quot is a Well known Maxim in this country and Why should ministers make an exception from this Rule i there is i admit a great difference Between the different congregations one is composed of better material than the other and if Supli is Tho Case changes of ministers do not so often occur but if changes do occur Only every three or five years it is still bad enough. No one who Means it Well with our religion can Sanction such a proceeding. I know congregations which advertise for a minister every year and would do it oftener if they could dispose sooner of Tho incumbent in office. Now i know there is nothing More unpleasant for an educated Man who has spent time and Money for his vocation than such an everlasting change of places. I know ministers of our Faith in this country who have occupied in ten years ten or even fifteen different places. If such is the cases and it can not be denied i say with or. Lowenthal who would educate his children As ministers where is the father who should desire that his son might chose the ministry when any other profession or Trade offers a More permanent subsistence ? Tho consequences must inevitably be Felt in. A very Short time Thoro will be a deplorable deficiency of competent ministers to fill the various places. Would the men who do nothing to remedy this evil Tho men who think that a minister is their servant who can be disposed of to their hearts desire feel alone the pernicious consequences of such proceedings a we would not utter a word in their behalf they should As Justice demands it be punished to the extent of their follies. But our religion is something too holy to be trifled with the Progress of Light and truth which our religion will produced if properly taught and expounded is something too sacred As to be silent on this occasion. The welfare of the rising generation demands that something must to done by Tho congregations to improve Tho condition of their ministers. Congregations can not obtain competent men to. Fill their places As Long As they pay such a poor salary and make Tho situations not More permanent. If there is in no encouragement Foran Able Man aaa min. Of years who becomes thus perfectly acquainted with Bis members and who must feel an interest in Che welfare of the congregation knowing Ali Jef do can continue the Good work wish he commenced Tho first year Fop the succeeding years ? \. \ if this is True of a mini ate is this not Tho Baino with the office of a teacher ? can n school Prosper and flourish if there is every year another teacher ? every one who is Only somewhat acquainted with education knows that thereat schools Are those whom competent teachers Are retained for a term of years hence also the congregations whose first and last object it should be to establish Good schools must lose largely Here As the offices of teacher and minister Aro often Una ted in the same person. Here also another and hot unimportant fact must not be overlooked. Often one or the other place is not filled immediately consequently what one teacher has accomplished by hard labor is lost again while the place remains vacant or often the new teacher who is incompetent knows not How to build up and continue Tho labor of his predecessor. The minister and teacher can not work with the same spirit and Good will if he knows he can not fill the place More than one year. Would the Husbandman toil and labor with the same Industry and care if he would know he could not gather the fruits off his labor ? most certainly not. Can it their be expected of a teacher whose care and labor is More ardent than that of a Husbandman ? outside pressures and unfavourable circumstances moist greatly undermine Tho efficiency of a minister or teacher. No officer needs More a free mind encouragement or Good will than a minister or teacher of he knows three or four months before his engagement expires that lie has to leave his office perhaps not knowing How to make a. Living for himself and family after that time How can he yet to useful surrounded by. Such circumstances ? fortunately Iii succeeds and finds another place the sad thought for an existence vanish for the time. Being from his mind. The new congregation of which he has taken charge is pleased with his efforts Ono praises his Nice voice such a Hazan Tho congregation has never had before the other admires him As a preacher he Speaks tim English and German languages with equal facility and one can not find words enough. In his Praise the children like their new teacher in four weeks one finds out perhaps that his children never made such Progress. That is All Well enough As far As it goes. It must be made known through the Columna of the israelite How Well the congregation has succeeded in finding the Rightman at Tho right place hence a sanguine member of the congregation takes up his pen and writes a great Deal in Praise of the new but must the Man who is praised up not know that there is nothing new under Tho Sun. Did be knot experience the same proceedings at his former place and nevertheless he hair to leave after a year. It is an established truth that congregations who Are at the beginning the loudest in uttering Praise about the minister arc often the loudest in denunciation at the end. I say do not Praise up a Man before you find out suf a fic gently his qualities but if you have found a Man worthy of your Confidence capable and efficient show him. All the respect his office deserves irom beginning to end and4 seek to retain his services As Long As it impossible to do so Only then let him go if the minister can improve his condition for he As Well As you must provide for himself and family. I could extend my remarks on this Point yet but what i have said is sufficient to show the wrong policy of congregations in changing their ministers so often. But it must not be believed to do Hustle likewise to congregations a that the fault alone lies with the congregations but often it is the ministers own fault if such he can be called that he gives no satisfaction. In a country like this where every one con claim to to a doctor a lawyer and a thousand other things every one who wears a White Cravat can also claim to be a minister a Hazan preacher rabbi etc., and All these functions combined in one and Tho same person. I claim that not half Tho men who fill the office As minister and Hazan,etc., Aro competent or have been properly Quot educated. In the first place it is a wrong idea of congregations to advertise for a Hazan Shochet preacher,.rabbi, Mohel combined in one person they Aro certain to be hum bugged if they require so much particularly for such a trifling salary say Throe of four Hundred dollars As there is in Many advertisement promised. If a person is a Good preacher it and 1 Anistor to will no doubt forsake his Vocat Ion j teacher to is often not a Good Hazan a Abd As soon As he finds something bettor to do j often if to is the latter he is not the former thus it comes that frequently persons Are elected As ministers who arc utterly income and never have his children educated Iii the.
