meaning of the term "Jew." He says
that he is an American by birth, bqt a Jew

(Query: Is Butler a Christian?) He uu-

In the great struggle that now engages us,
there is a necessity for the best service
and devotion of all. For my own part. I
am anxious to do my whole duty in this
great crisis. While the cause was pros-
perous, the public merit of aiding it might
well be left to those whose honor-
able ambition, for distinction press-
ed them forward in its service; but
now that a cloud has seemed to gather
over the prospect' of speedy suc-
cess, (for ultimate success is certain as
there is a God in Heaven), it is specially
incumbent on all to show their readiness
to assume a due share of the burthqens and
exposure of the day, This sentiment
would urge me to a prompt and willing
service, wherever and however I can be
useful; and to render diy service in such
cause, I eseem aun honor to any citizen.
The conclusion I reacltTir-er4i-ofe+'a,-
that if, by an unmistakable expression of
the public opinion, it should appear, 'that
in the judgment of the community, my
service in the cause would be most useful
in the post you propose, I should receive
that judgment as indicating the line of
duty for me,,.and, sacrificinsi all other
considerations, I .would obey: the com-

Bpt to have such authority, the opinion
should be general and spontaneous.
I couldn't, therefore, consent to become
.a competing candidate 'for this or any
other position.' I am ready, and nay tru-
ly say- desirous, to aid in this straggle
wherever I can be most efficient; but not
believing myself capable to be more use-
ful thah in a private station, I could not.

manifested-so decidedly, as to remove
any aPpearance of competition. This
course would h4e the more incumbent up-
on ale, in view ; of the fact that several
gentemen of great merit, most of them
my /personal friends, have already been
placed '", .-..Iu.'il; before the community
,as proper recipients of ;.ul..'.. considera-.
And if the spontaneous and general
sense of the community should assign me
to the particular, duty you propose, my
obedience must be cowpled with another
condition, to which there connot be, I
presume, any objection, namely: that in
as much as my departure from the rule of
life Ihad adopted, is imposed by considera-

Beast Butler and the Jews.
Some time since General Butler stated
in an official telegram that "five Jews were
captured trying to run the blockade, etc."
Foorthwith a Mr. Id. S. Isaacs, of 150
Nassau street, New York, addressed him
a letter, inquiring why he specified the re-
ligion of these contraband traders, and
commenting upon the fact as an invidious
religious distinction. Butler, in reply,
explains that the phrase was meant to
"designate nationality, not religion, as one
would say, "five Irishmen, five Germans,
or five Italians." He adds :
"I have always considered the Jews a
nationality, although possessing no soun-
try. The elosen-a'' within which they eling
tosethsr, the aid which they afford each
other, on all proper, and sometimes im-
proper occasions, the fact that nearly all

Corn for Soldiers' Families,
It will be seen from the communication
published below that an arrangement has
been made by which a portion of the tithe
corn can be obtained for the support of
soldiers' families. This is an excellent ar-
"rangement, beneficial io the Government
and the people. We would urge uponi all
county officers entrusted with the execu-
tion-of the law for the support of soldiers'.
families tp exercise the utmost diligence-
and care in furnishing that relief to fairi-

quire. We have been informed that in
some portions of certain counties some neT-
ledt of this important duty has arisen
through carelessness'or inefficiency of cer-
tain officials. The Justice of the Peace
have something to do with the execution of
the law,and we are advised thatit is the in-
tention of the Governor to turn over to
conscription any officer whom he shall as-
cerain to have neglected his duty in this
important particular :

in every smile, we could but wish that
the o her attributes of the cele6tials were

she was all love and tenderness., Home
