i, S. Hirsch in Philadelphia, David Einhorn in Baltimore, are only a few of the names of those who fought in the thick of the fight. About the year 1843 the first real Reform congregations were established, the Temple Emanuel in New York and Har Sinai in Baltimore. It cannot be my purpose here to trace the history of the movement in this country; suffice it to say that the untrammelled freedom which existed here very soon played havoc with most of the institutions of the Jewish religion. Eacckground, so that in some congregations the service is altogether English; and in a few congregations an additional service on Sunday, intended for those who cannot attend upon the regular Sabbath-day, has been introduced. Only one congregation, Sinai in Chicago, has followed the old Berlin Reform synagogue and has entirely abolished the service on Friday night and Saturday morning. But whatever criticism one might like to offer on the Reform movement in the United States, it deserves great pr

ls In all thy steeple-towers are rung. And I, obedient to thy will, Have come a simple wreath to lay, Superfluous, on a grave that still Is sweet with all the flowers of May. I take, with awe, the task assigned; It may be that my friend might miss, In his new sphere of heart and mind, Some token from my hand in this. By many a tender memory moved, Along the past my thought I send; The record of the cause he loved Is the best record of its friend. No trumpet sounded in his ear, He saw not Sinai's cloud and flame, But never yet to Hebrew seer A clearer voice of duty came. God said: “Break thou these yokes; undo These heavy burdens. I ordain A work to last thy whole life through, A ministry of strife and pain. Forego thy dreams of lettered ease, Put thou the scholar's promise by, The rights of man are more than these. “ He heard, and answered: ‘Here am I!’ He set his face against the blast, His feet against the flinty shard, Till the hard service grew, at last, Its own exceedi
eople ignorant enough to contend, not only that slavery impoverishes, but that, in a military point of view, it enfeebles a State. One of the first acts of Moses, after he had delivered his countrymen from the Egyptian yoke, was to wage war against the Edomites, conquer and reduce them to slavery. Josephus declares that the Jews were greatly benefited by the booty and the slaves they acquired. This was while Moses was governed by Divine council, contemporaneous with the thunders of Mount Sinai, and the delivery of the ten Commandments. This conquest of slaves was ordered with direct reference to the occupation and settlement of the promised land. Having given slaves to the Jews, the Almighty regulated the institution by an excellent code of laws; and when they entered Canaan, authorized them to make slaves of the heathen around them. If we explore the history of English civilization, we shall find that slavery, even the slavery of Englishmen, rested at its foundation. T
lorious fabric on earth. He alluded to the condition of things thirty years ago, when abolitionism was a speck no bigger than a man's hand, but which was now a cloud over shadowing the whole earth. It has seized upon and destroyed the peace of society, rended the religious institutions of the country, and has at last reached a point where forbearance is no longer possible.--He then proceeded to speak of slavery as an institution which God approves. --It was instituted by God himself, on Mount Sinai, when in the commandments he said thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's servant.--The first slave catcher was an angel, the second was St. Paul. It is an institution sustained by all scriptural authorities — ordained by God, recognized by his chosen people, countenanced and sustained by the Saviour and his Apostles. The result of its establishment in the American Colonies had been prosperity unparallel to the white race, and civilization to the black. The cultivation of cotton was anothe
