t MntMwu&n &xtt NOT THE GliOllY OF CJ3SAK It V T THE WELFARE OF ROME BY II. B. STACY. RESTORATION OF THE JEWS. It is stated in llio Now York Evening Star, that Professor Rush oftliat city, in u, lecture recently delivered, endeavored to show that the prophecies respecting the restoration of the Jews could he un derstood no otherwise than literally. Ju reference to this subject, M. M. Noah, (the editor of the Star) himself a .lew, quotes the following extract from Black wood's Magazine, and adds thereto the remarks annexed : Huston Courier. " It is impossible to read the Scriptu ral references to the future condition of Palestine, without discovering a crowd of the plainest and .most powerful indica tions that it shall yet exhibit a totally different aspect from that of its present state. Enthusiasm, or even (tho natural intciWvliiefrjo feel 1i this memorable' nation, may color the future to us too brightly ; but unless language of the most solemn kind, uttered on the most solemn occasions, and by men divinely com missioned for its utterance, is wholly un meaning, wo must yet look to some pow erful, and unquestionable, display of Pro vidence, in favor of the people of Is rael. The remarkable determination of Eu ropean politics towards Asia Minor, Sy ria, and Egypt, within theso few years ; the not less unexpected change of manners mid customs, winch seemed to defy all fliango; and the new life infused into the stagnant Governments of Asia, even by their being Hung into the whirl of Euro pean interests, look not unlike signs of the times. It may bo no dream to imag ine in the phenomena the proofs of some memorable change in the interiorof things some preparatives for that great prov idential restoration, of which Jerusalem will yet be the scene, if not the centre ; and the Israelite himself, the especial agent of those high transactions, which shall make Christianity the religion of all lands, restore the dismantled beauty of all earth, and make man what he was cre ated to be only 'a little lower than the angels.' The statistics of the Jewish population are among the most singular circumstan ces of this most singular of all people. Undorall their calamities and dispersions, they seem to have remained at nearly the same amount as in the days of David and Solomon, never much more in prosper ity, never much less after ages of su tier ing. Nothing like this has occurred in the history of any other race ; Europe in gen eral having doubled its population within the last hundred years,and England near ly tripled hers with the last half century; the proportionof America being still more rapid, and the world crowding in a con stantly increasing ratio. Yet the Jews seem to stand still in this vast and gen eral movement. The population of Ju dea, in its most palmy days, probably did not exceed, if it reached, four millions. The numbers who entered Palestine from the wilderness were evidently not much more than three ; and their census, according the German statists, who were generally considered to be exact, is now nearly tlie same as that ol the people un der Moses about three millions. They are thus distributed : Tn Europe, 1,910,000, of which about 058,000 are in Poland and Russia, 453,- 000 in Austria. In Asia, 7(58,000, of which 300,000 arc m Morocco. In America, North and South, 57,000. If we add to these about 15,000 Sa maritans, the calculation in round num hers will be about o, iS0,000. This was the report in 1S25 the num bers probably remain the same. 1 iio extraordinary fixedness in the midst of almost of universal increase, is doubtless not without a reason it we are even to look for it among the mysterious opera' tions which have preserved Israel a sep arate race for eighteen hundred years May wo not naturally conceive, that ; people thus prosed without advance or re troccssion; dispersed yet combined; bro ken yet firm ; without a country, yet dwelling in all ; every where insulted, yet every where inlluential; withouta nation yet united as no nation ever was before or sinco-has not been appointed to offer this extraordinary contradiction to the com mon laws of society, and even tho com men progress ol naturo without a cause and that causo ono of final benevolence universal good, and divine grandeur?" Wo apprehend there is some error in the above statistics, and that the number of Jews throughot tho world may bo csti mated at nearer six millions than three Thoir numbers will never bo accurately known until tho restoration when thousands who, from convenience and pride, and some from apprehension conceal their religion, will bo most eager to avow it when their nation takes rani: among tho Governments of tho earth. Though thoy may not bo powerid to numbers, will still outnumber seven of tho existing European monarchies, but for difi'usion of general intelligence quickness ol apprehension aptness in business concerns amazing ministry ana enterprise, and incalculable wealth, they will constitute, for their numbers, tlto greatest nation on earth, and the whole of ludea will, in a low years alter the res toration, exhibit a most splendid spocta- Ic ol tho united power ot riches, talent, uul indomitable enterprise. All tho old ports on the Mediterranean will bo again pencd, the harbors cleared, and the ruin ed cities rebuilt, from Alexandria to the Rosphorous; the old canal reopened from airo to the lied Sea; the trade to India through the Straits of Dabelmandol re ivedmanufactories established, and the water newer of the Jordan and the Dead Sea used for mills railroad laid down to tho Euphrates, and the hole of the commerce of Persia diver ted into new channels. What tho result of tho restoration may be is not to bo doubted; but the means of bringing about this event arc not so well established as vet. We. must keep our eye uirectcu towards the Last, anil depend upon events which Providence disposes to tho ultimate completion of his will. War is costlv and il the Pacha of Egypt refuses obedience to the Sultan, and the Sultan is sustained by Russia against Egypt ; if Persia forms allies, and takes part in tho the wars ; il India is threatened, and the ir becomes general m the East, the restoration of the Jews as a measure of policy and expediency, may bo closer at hand than many imagine. Come when may, the Jews are ready, not only to form their Government, but to embrace in its protection and toleration tho two great branches long separated from the arent tree, Christianity and lslainism the planets which have revolved around the Sun the streams flowing from the great fountain and then will be realized the oath to Abraham, " In thy seed shall ill the nations ol the earth be blessed. N. V. Star. As one of the most striking and signifi int signs of tho times in which our des tiny is cast, we cannot, says the London Vthenaiiim, avoid referring to a recently published appeal addressed to the Pro testant inonarchs ol Europe, on the sub ject of the restoration of the Jews to their own country ol the Promise. I his sin- ar document recites the original cov enant made with Abraham, and referring to the opening suggested by the present posture ot Oriental allair.s, pleads the ausool the wanderers boioro the princes of Europe, in every one of whose domi nions they were so latelv a proscribed and denounced race, that it seems as if the world could scarcely have got so much older and wiser in the short interval. In tho face of general demonstrations so full of meaning, all partial attempts to ro-es- ahlisli the reign ol bigotry lose their ter ror. If there be something striking in this ippeal from the Jew to the Gentile on the strength of other arguments than hisgold, there is, if possible, something still more strange to our antiquated notion .of the Jewish character llsell, in a lact which we find stated elsewhere. It appears, that the, Hebrews of the town of llosemberg, the capital of the district ofOppelon, in Prus sian Silesia, understanding that the erec tion of the new Lutheran church in that place was impeded for want of fund subscribed tho required amount for i's completion, and accompanied tho gilt by i letter express their desire for the spread thi: feeling ot universal brotherhood, un disturbed by dillerences ot religion. Ver ily, the Jewis another character, lost to the page of European romance. Jiosfon J. uncs. Tun Jr.ws important ip true. A Hamburg paper, the Dorpzeitung, says: "Tho Jews of Constantinople, with their Kabbi, declare that thoy will not wait any longer than another year for their Mes siah. Jl, within that time, he does not ippear, they will conclude that ho is al ready recognized. J ho iinhbi is entire ly of this opinion, and has even proposed to bis congregation to profess Christianity lorthwith." From the N. V. Weekly iMecnser. Tilt; DAHLIA ami MOSS ICOS1 I1V MRS. MARY L. CARDINUR. Elizabeth was tho only child of Mi and Mrs. M., people of immense wealth 1 hey were located in tho town ol A and dwelt in a superb mansion, situate upon a beautiful eminence on tho river T Petted and spoiled from infancy, no wis of her heart was ungratified. She was truly beautiful. Tho glanco of her darl eye was penetrating as tho piercing ray of a sunbeam. Hers was tho power to raise or depress the spirits of those around her. Mich was her unconquerable lov of gratification, sho could not rest until every wish of her heart was accomplished. She loved tho praiso and adoration of her friends, to which sho was so much accus tomed that sho seemed to demand them whenever sho appeared ; and was restless unless sho was the themo of universal ad miration. Ellon W. was an oiphan. Sho was placed, at hor parent's (loath, with her father's sister, Mrs. S a lady of high intellectual attainments, and ardent piety. Their dwelling was situated in a beautiful valley in the suburbs of tho town ofN . Everything which naturo und art could combine scorned juiinglod in F KID AY, MAY this delightful vale. The mountain scenery on the west, was calculated to inspire tho mind with awo and sublimity. Tho trees ol the forest towered on its top, and tho roses and myrtles bloomed in sweet security upon its mossy edge. Numberless rivulelsineandered from their rocky beds, in murmuring streams, amid their own native solitude. It was oppo site this mountain Ellen W. resided, and like Dryads of tho grove, sho delighted to range over its sloping sides, and bound, like the fawn, toward its dizzy height. Mrs. S. carefully instilled into tho ex panding intellect of her neico tho purest principles. And under her transforming hand, she grew in all tho loveliness of nature. Her mind was early imbued with piety, and stored with useful knowledge. Shu was taught, not only to explore tho pjbgcsdr history, tin) firt of painting and music, but she perfectly understood the principles of domestic economy, bho was nature's true votary. She loved to contemplate the varying seasons, nnddc- ived pleasure and instruction from the lessons they taught her. Sho delighted, at twilight's soft and hallowed hour, to view the golden sunset, the glowing crim son, with its emerald tints, tlie nine ar ched sky, with its cAfctial garniture ; ami in childhood's yielding hour, would clasp! her fairy hands together, as she looked upwards to the starry heavens, and fancy her beloved parents were gazing upon her, through the bright scintillations which beamed so sweetly above. Music was her passion, and with the sweet songster of her native grove, sho warbled in her own wild melody. She v a 1 eimr li?ht as air, Her law and lurm, divinely fair. Her disposition amiable, her counte nance the perfect confound beauty. She tad been the pupil ol tho village pastor ; tho favorite lamb of his flock. Beloved by all who knew her, and designated the Hose of the Valley, around the heart of her aunt she wound herself, as the young ivy twines itself around its parent stem. Theirs was that happy coincidence of mutual feeling which leads to unbounded confidence. Willi a small income, thoy managed not only to live genteelly, but to assist in relieving the wants of many, in whose eyes, as they blessed them, the tears ol thankfulness gleaned, hko the pure drops of the morning. While the voting ladies were in their eighteenth year, Henry Carlton, and Alfred Harrington, who had lately gra duated from Vale College, were visiting different parts of the United States, and wore spending sonic time at iN . At a soiree, given by Elizabeth's father, these young gentleman were invited, and went. On entering, they were dazzled bv the brilliancv of the scene. No ex pense had been spared to render it ono of uncommon splendor. Elizabeth had seen the handsome strangers, and had ascer tained they were wealth'. She entered into tho amusements ot tho evening with her whole heart, determined to enroll them on the list of hor admirers. She indeed looked beautiful. 1 lor eyes beam ing with pleasure and iier countenance lighted up with smiles. She was dressed in dark satin, with white pearls. She moved around, the presiding divinity of the evening, a tar of the first magnitude in fashion and folly. To her the friends were introduced, and with many others, bowed to this proud beauty. Unrivaled, carcsscd,gratifiod and adored, she seemed to walk on air, for sho was reveling in her own element. As Henry C, and Alfred II., with their fair companion prome naded from room to room, beneath the rays of an hundred lights, which cast a magic upon tho scene, they became in terested in a lovely young creature, who was bending with inimitable grace, over a splendid centre table, admiring among a profusion of what was calculated to please the votaricrs of our nation's idol, a remarkable well executed print of an cient Greece, with its dalipidated temples and moss chid towers. So completely was sho engaged in viewing it, that had she been in reality, with tho youth and maidens of Athens, turning their lutes beside their native rills, wandering over their vino-clad mountains, or amid their balmy groves, she apparently would not have been more unmoved by tho scene around her. Arrayed in transparent mus lin, which hung in lose folds around her sylph-like form, her head resting upon her hand, over which clustered a profusion of dark raven curls; modest and unas suming in appearance, but oxquisitly beautiful. Elizabeth on beholding tho stranger's inquisitive gaze, approaching, saw Miss W , when, looking up, sho bowed with ease and pleasantness. After some conversation, Henry Carlton oll'urod her his arm, and with him she strayed amid tho giddy throrjg, until thoy again found themsclos at tho table, where they were soon accosted by Alfred and Elizabeth, tho latter exclaimed, "Mess mo, how en gaged you arc. Pray what is your em ployment? Plodding over Concic sec tions, orstudying the language of flowers?" This sho said with an inch smile. "Wo wore looking at this print," replied Carl ton. "And pray what is it?" said Eliz ubcth. "It is tho duhliu and the most 15, 1840.

"Oh ! is not tho dahlia splen did ?" "Is not tho rose enchanting? said Henry "would that I could pluck it from its parent stem, and were it forever in my bosom." As he spoke, his eloquent eyes rested upon Ellen, who, blushing deeply, with difficulty- suppressed a sigh. Ho saw the emotion his words produced; there was something in her expressive in telligent countenance, which rivitcd tho soul of Henry Carlton, and chained him to Ellen W. forever. A ffiw years having elapsed, we are again with our young lriends, Alfred Ilar rin"mi, and Elizabeth M. in their splendid mansion; Henry Carlton and Ellen W. in theirs- Hut how great the contrast! Eliz abeth M. aftcrhcr marriage, lived in a con tinued round of dissipation and folly,until she became weary of her own existence. She was tho mother of two lively children was still the idol of her parents; "and might have been the happy wife of an indulgent husband. Hut so f,abituatod had shebo coino to a continued round of excite ment and pleasure, that she lived no longer than when under their immediate influence. IIorhcaHi became impaired.

Her mind was continually upon the rack for something new. To please her was impossible ; her days vera spent in restlesness and gloom. Her husband. wearied in his attempts, sought enjoyment abroad. The dwelling of Henry Carlton, and Ellen W., was tho abode of happiness and peace. Soon after their marriage, rtlrs. ft. died; and her lovely niece cen tered all her affections in her husband Ho was the idol of her heart's youmj mi-inn, .Mm snuioveu mm with all a wo man's fervor.

Wo promise to give below some ac count of yesterday's proceedings, as full mil accurate as possible, although any thing like a complete history of so mem orable a day, including all details and in cidents, would be quilo beyond our pow er in tho brieftimu allowed us now. We might state the. vast numbers in atten- incc the banners, badges, order of procession, and every statistical Hem both ofarrangenient and proceedings but tho sketch would still be altogether im perfect. For how were it possible to to. transfer to paper the reality of the scene totrantuso into a description tho living spirit which quickened the immense concourse as one man and which, more than the array of banners or the pagean try of processions, constituted tho real element of subsistence to tho mighty gathering, prompting the eloquent har angue and the responding shout the deep enthusiasm of word and look with which friend greeted friend, or which, diffused in silence like a palpable presence over the vast assemblage, imparted a feeling of solemnity and grandeur blended in uni son with the idea of a Nation's majesty. J t seemed as though the people ihem selves had mot in their legitimate atti tude of sovereignty, to vindicate the Con stitution and the Laws, and to rebuke the presumption which, seated in high places had used delegated power as though it were a a soil-derived authority, forget' ting tho dread allegiance to the sacred charter of American freedom. Delegations were in attendance from every State. From Thursday evening until yesterday noon tho tide augmented continually bv fresh accessions, set stea dily towards the Reception Room at the Lutaw i louse, where names were regis tered and lodgings assigned in tho hos pitable houses of Whigs throughout the citv. New Annand came in force from the banks of Krnnelteck from the green hills of Vermont, from the Valley of the Connecticut, where the echoes of triumph yet linger, prolonging the shouts of recent victim' so noblv achieved there from gallant Jihode. Island, her sister in glory from the bosom of the Old Day Stale, where Independence leans upon his spear and looks towards Faneuil Hall ; from town and city and rural abode they came an ardent band, bringing with them the unconquerable spirit and steady purpose which never yet have ceased to characterize the descendants of the Pilgrim Fathers. Tho Empire Slate gave forth hor sons from the shores of Erie to the waters of the Hudson, and the sound of her voice was like thunder, us it mingled in the blended acclaim of the congregated host. From tho plains of Monmouth and the battle fields and Princeton, and from the regions adjoining, came an earnest crowd bearing the veiled image of New Jersey and with mute eloquence appealing to friends and brethren for justice against tho violence which had done outrage to her honor. The Democracy of Penn sylvania gathered from every valley of the Keystone fstato from our sister city of Philadelphia, from Pittsburgh, Lancas ter, Uniontown, from Carlisle, York and other towns of tho interior marrhiug un der tho banner of the Hero of Tippeca noe, whose favorite name, sounding through the Alleghany heights, and along the valleys of the .Susquehanna, the Dela ware, and the rocky battlements of Mo nongaheln, has aroused an enthusiasm which nothing can suppress. Ohio was the first in reaching the city through her Zanesville delegation an evidence of zeal which sho will bo eager to repeat at tho polls in duo time, and which befitted her well since she claims tho Farmer of Forth Hend as her son and citizen. Indiana, mindful of her own history and ofu's services who once pro tected her in the days of her infancy, stood forth in a strong delegation of man ly youth. Michigan held not back, but with .Illinois and Missouri, gave stout hearts and warm ones to join in tho proud fellowship of the national communion. Tho spirit of Kentucky, noble and gen erous, asit displayed itselfat ilarrisburgh mingled with tho aggregated elomouts of patriotic ardor gathered from all quarters of tho Republic. From Tennessee Ar l;ansas M ississippi . I labama Geor gia and South Carolina delegations came, fewer in numbers than from the more continguous State, but all nnimated by that feeling of a common enthusiasm which constitutes a bond of brotherhood between Whigs in all quarters of the Un ion and prepared to join with thoir brethren in the solemn pledge about to bo entered intobeforo tho eyes of tho whole country. North Carolina, oagor to vin dicate her claim once more to the glory of being a whig State, and to givo a tokou of tho spirit with which her name will bo redeemed next fall, poured forth a pow erful detachment of her chosen youth; whilo the Old Dominion, from tho wide extent of her territories from highlands VOL,. XIII No. 673 uul lowlands gave up her noble sons, who came with tho song of Virginia's deliverance on thoir lips,to receive it. turn congratulating shouts lrom tho congrega tion of their countrymen. The delega tion from Virginia was estimated at fifteen hundred strong. Delaware, as m tho days or the Revolution, marched gallant ly to tho rendezvous, and once more tho Delaware and Maryland lines stood sido by side, united in a common cause. Our neighbors from tho District were with us, too in great force. How strong must be that feeling of en thusiasm which thus drew together from such remote points such a multitude of mon of all tempers, habits, pursuits various in their local peculiarities, and divers in their opinions on indifferent matters summoning each from his indi vidual business some from the plough, others from the counting-house, the oflico, and all at a sacrifice of personal conven ience how deep and strong, we repeat, must be that feeling which could thus bring together so many men from such different and distant (iitarters, and causo them, when assembled in ono body, to hail each other as brethren, to plight witti hearty goodwill the mutual hand of fellow ship, and to blend all thoughts and feel ings in harmony on tho great subject which they met to confer upon! Not a district of this great Republic was without its delegates. Representatives were hero from beyond the Mississippi from tho borders of the great Lakes from tho shores of the Gulf of Mexico. The sons of the Puritans met with the descendants! of the Cavaliers the Western Huckcyo was seen side by side with the Palmetto of the South the dwelleron the sea-shoro saluted tho hardy mountaineer. Thero was a general commingling of hearts and voices local prepossessions, indivdual preferences, every thing that might with draw the mind from the one great purposo of the meeting were set aside, in order that one undivided, deep-felt and univer sal feeling of opposition to the party in power might have a hearty, loud and unanimous utterance. This voice has gone forth ; it will reach every corner of the land it will roll through valleys far and near, and reverberate from mountain to mountain. It will mingle with tho rushing sound of the Mississippi waters, and blend with every breeze that sweeps over tho plains of the South ; New Eng land will echo back the voice which tho Empire State shall prolong, and Pennsyl vania take up the flying sound until tho note of remonstrance and indignation shall swell into one of triumph and victo rious joy. The concentration of such a multitudo from various points, it may well be sup posed, created no small bustle and excite ment in our city. It was like the gather ing of the clans, when the fiery cross sped from hill to hill among the Highlands, and every true heart responded to tho sum mons. Estimates of expected numbers usually exaggerated in such cases, for once fell short of the reality. Tho Com mittee of Reception sat night and day with the names of Whig householders beforo them, and found incessant employment in distril uting the new comers among our hospitable citizens. The spectacle presented by our streets yesterday morning was of the most ex citing and cxhilirating kind. The day before had been cloudy, and on Sunday night a heavy rain fell ; but tho morning of the Fol'uth or May opened brightly, ii i nl the sun rose in a cloudless sky. From various points the delegations moved at an early hour with banners and music to take their allotted positions in west Balti more street. Each detachment as it pass ed on was greeted with shouts ; the wind ows were crowded with ladies, who lev ti ed with delight upon tho scene to ;vn.ch their own presence, with waving hand kerchiefs and fluttering veils, gave a bright adornment. Tho marching of tho in numerable divisions, the array of ban ners, tho galloping of the marshals to and iif, decorated with gay sashes tho sounds of music answered to music, and of shout provoking shout all imparted life and enthusiasm and gave a happy beginning to tho coming pageant. THE PROCESSION. Tho Procession was led by Captain James O. Law, Chief Marshal of tho day, and an aid on each side on horseback, lie has appointed five assistants; they were Messrs. James II. Miliken, Wash ington Hooth, Charles H. Winder, Levi Fanestock and J. W. Osborne. A fino baud of music immediately followed tho Marshal, playing Harrison's March, as composed by Professor Deihnan. Then camo the President and officers of tho H A LT 1 M O R E CITY DELEGA TION, bearing a largo white banner on a frame, with tho following nppropriato Lrnscription from a new and popular song : "Tho people nro coming from plnin nnd Iroia mountain, To join tho brave band of tho honest nnd frtv, Wliteh Krows ns tho&trcnm from the leaf-sheltered fountain.
