For The Jewish South. IRcltotousXcabcrsof tbeWorlb. By Charles Hutzler. [This address was delivered Thirteen Class, of Richmond, on October IS, tHiIT, by Mr. was prepared without any view to its publication ; but it has been so favorably commented on by the members of the class, that many of those who were not present have tried to prevail upon the writer to place it before the public. After much solicitation Mr. Hutzler has agreed to give it to the readers of The Jewish Soi'Tii, which in to-day's issue publishes the first instalment. Two more sections are to follow, one of which will appear next week, and the other the week after.] Part I—Buddha, Confucius, and Zoroaster. IN ADDRESSING myself to the subject of this sketch introducing Buddha, Confucius, Zoroaster, Me&gt;ses, Christ, and Mahomet, I will ask you to permit your thoughts to take a flight backward acroM the centuries and imagine the conditions. When Moses first came upon the scene Egypt was the the centre not onl...

the "leader of men" and the originates of religious forms. The founder of the Buddhist faith, who flourished in India during the fifth century before the Christian era, known also as Gautama and Siddartha, was in many respects the most remarkable of all the leaders with whom we have to deal. Born under conditions of honor and wealth, surrounded by all that usually constitutes happiness; gifted with powers that gave promise of the fruition of his ambition, he suddenly threw aside kindred, wealth, honor, and position, and without other incentive than the current of his own irresistible impulses chose the life of an ascetic, became a philosopher, and established a new faith. Nor was this attained without surmounting innumerable obstacles. His incentive is best described by quoting his own words: "I am now going to establish the kingdom of rightee&gt;usness,to give light to those enshrouded in darkness, and open the gate of immortality to men." With this declaration he left a ho...

up the lifee&gt;f ane)ther of the so-called heathen leaders — one who stands euit prominently in sacreel history as one e&gt;f the grandest characters that the world has produced. By reason of the of accounts, Zoroaster is generously attributed to a varying number erf dates, ranging from 6000 down to 600 years before Christ, but the me&gt;st generally accepted elate is located either at the time e&gt;f the great law-giver MOMS or about 1000 B. C. With so much obscurity relating to time, it is not te) be wondered at that so little is knoWO e&gt;f his persenial appearance, and only so much e)f his persemal histe&gt;ry as can be gathered from the fragments that have ce&gt;me clown to us through the ages. The Zend-Avesta, which is a philose&gt;phic system giving an account e)f the creation, tejgether with religious precepts carefully compiled and ethically demonstrated, is attributetl te&gt; him ; and of this it is ...

this being estimated as one-fourth of the populatiem of that continent at that time. It wemld seem as if this record should be sufficient to satisfy the thirst for glory e&gt;f even the nrnst ambitious microbe, but there is one bacillus, not endowed by nature with the power e&gt;f causing elisease in man, which has been responsible for the sacrifice of many human lives among one people—the Jews. On several occasions eluring the Middle Ages persecutions of the Jews had their starting point from what was known as the "miracle of the bleeding host." On these occasions the bread of the sacrament, which was believed to be actually the flesh of Christ, was Observed to be covered with blood-red blotches, which were at emce decided really te&gt; be blood which had appeared in cemsequence of wounds inflicted upon the holy wafer by some malicious Jew. Following these "miracles" came the inevitable persecutions, resulting in the murder of theiusands e)f [ews. Modern inv...

Congress was transacted in secret, no great deal is known of its workings, but it is claimed by those acquainted with its inner affairs that the greater portion of its important legislation was framed by Mr. Benjamin. An act performed in 1862 shows the true patriotism of the man. General Huger was in command of Roanoke Island and Mr. Benjamin was filling the post of secretary of war. A requisition for powder was made and was not filled. This was twice repeated without avail, and Roanoke Island fell. An investigation was ordered by congress, and it took but a few seconds for the secretary to inform the committee that the powder had not been forthcoming for the best of reasons —there was none to send. The ejuestion then arose as te) what might be the probable effect upon congress and the people in general of this disclosure of the Confederacy's limited resources. It was decided that this would never do, and the committee was in a quandary. At Mr Benjamin's own suggestion the committee...

mm gave further proof of his manliness and independence. He had occasion to appear before a judge who was notorious for the discourteous manner in which he treated those lawyers who were se&gt; unfortunate as to have dealings with him and whe&gt; really stood in dread of him. Mr. Benjamin had only begun his argument, when the judge informed him cjuite abruptly that it was useless for him to proceed as his mind was already made up. "Your honor," hotly replied the ex-Confederate, "you, of course, can refuse to hear me argue this case; but I wish to tell you this —that never again will I condescend to appear in your court." The judge was so surprised that any barrister was bold enough to defy him that he was at first unable to reply ; but in a moment he realized that Mr. Benjamin was right, came down from the bench, him by the hand,apologised, and begged him to proceed, which he did, winning the case. The next week Mr. Benjamin was tendered a bancjuet for his temerity b...

Single Copy, Five Cents. Advertising Rate, 50 cents per inch. Resolutions and other Reading Notices, 10 cents per line. Entered at the Post-Office, Richmond, Va., as second class matter. PERHAPS IT is a pardonable pride which prompts us to lay some stress upon the (act that with the present; issue The Jewish SOUTH makes its two hun dredth appearance. True it is that this is ne&gt; abnorm.nl longevity on the part of the average publication. But Jewish journalism, in the South particularly, cannt&gt;t be gauged by the secular press, anel when we state that this is the second paper of itskinel in the entire South that has as yet attained unto the elignity of two hundred issues, it will be seen that we are justified in felicitating emrselves. A brief glance at the changes in the Jewish pre...

man was Hatzarmarveth. He had watched the poor girl anel saw her e&gt;ne day helping a blind woman to cross a brook. That was enough to cause suspicion, and seeing her give breael to a poe&gt;r wretch, he deneranced her. Tirtza was immediately brought before the judge with the unhappy Pcleg, whom she had helped. " You are accused e&gt;f having given bread to this miserable man," said the judge with severity. "I am young and strong," said Tirtza. " I could wait until the next day to eat, but poor Pcleg was dying of exhaustion. I took pity on him and gave him my bread." "Pity! pity!" replied the ypiteful judge; "it is with such words one corrupts youth and attracts vagrants into this cerantry." "lam no vagrant," said Pcleg, "I am one hundred and twenty years old. I can work no more. I was on my way te) Abraham's house when I met this virtuous child. Abraham has we&gt;rk for young people and bread and lodging for the old. It is there that I want to die."...

suffering, became exiled, returned to free his brethren from bondage, led them through the wilderness to the borders of a promised land, constitute a series of events so familiar to all mankind that it is almost a work of supererogation to relate them i n detail. That which stands out prominently in his history is that in every act performed by him he shrank from receiving personal praise, but always attributed his success to instructions from God. Such difficulties as beset his path no other man ever encountered and overcame. Such wisdom as he displayed in foreseeing every event that developed in his remarkable career so far transcends all other human knowledge that we can attribute it only to divine favor. Such faithfulness no other man has ever displayed. And all the rest of mankind's teachers cannot approach him in the purity of doctrine distilled from his lips. Altho' to Noah had been given the substance of the sixth command, and Abraham had received instruction in knowledge of...

and that without a treasury to draw upon or the allied assistance of any friendly power, but solely by the force of his own incomparable genius he carried them not only over seas and mountains, but through deserts as well; not only dodging foes on one side, but meeting and vanquishing them on others; not only providing food and drink, but quelling open and secret rebellion; not only turning the heads of his followers aside from the worship of idols, but bringing them to the worship of the true God ; not only furnishing wise and humane laws, but making provision for health as well; not only writing the simplest and greatest moral truths to be Ifanded down to history, but composing songs and poems of rare power and beauty, we must marvel to behold all these parts concentrated in a single creature, and marvel still more that when he died he chose that no man should know of his grave, lest his enthusiastic admirers might forget their Creator and seek to worship the bones of mortal man. ...

capabilities. Therefore, the stage impressing the public mind in its different characters should picture the Jew in his present condition and not as he was believed to have been in the past, when his chances for advancement were not as good as his fellowmen's. And he is slowly gaining his way, even on the stage, as an honorable character and not as a mark for satire and ridicule. In " Men and Women," a modern drama, " Israel Cohen," a Jew, one of the leading characters, is the personification of integrity and honor, the president of a bank, and beloved by his community. Let us hope that future authors and playwrights, when introducing Jewish characters and traits, will study, investigate, and learn their true, genuine qualities, and then when the stage portrayal is given the Jew will be justly depicted as he is, and by this means much will be done towards dissipating the false impression of his character and toward breaking down the barrier between Jew and non-Jew. Jewish Criterion....

Thkkk is every reason to believe that the slim attendance upon synagogue services is due in a great degree to the fact that nowadayses acorrespondent aptly expressed it last week, much, if not all, of our praying is done "by proxy." With a rabbi to recite a portion of the prayers and a choir to chant the remainder, the average congregant seems to think he is a useless appendage, and argues that so long, as he makes his payments to the congregation promptly he is doing all that is required of him. To-night the ladies of the Congregation Beth Ahaba will make a move toward a restoration of the old state of affairs. They will endeavor to organize a choral union, having for its object the resumption of congregational singing. This may, on its face, seem a matter of no great importance, but in the light of recent events, unless something is done to make the attendant upon the Sabbath services feel that he has a part therein and that his presence is lucxssary, the weekly devotion is doomed...
