to accomplish so much in the present and

methods. The (list, is the simple narra
tive of a journey one may make, with an
account of the country through which
one pusses, its inhabitants, etc., etc. Hero
dotus gives us the host specimens of this
method. The sicond, is, in Ihe form of
narrative bated on information taken from
sources other than one's own, the testimo
ny of a third parly. Luke relates Paul's

Well, then, it is charged lignin.l Mr

The remark of the Saturday Review
j has passed into the current of common
| sayings—lie (Fronde) "does not seem to
‘ have fully grasped the nature of inverted
commas," which is a remark applicable to
smaller hr greater minds than bis; though
it does bailie even a learned ingenuity to
ascertain how, properly, and in the com
ma style, to credit nature for all that wc
manage to pilfer from her stores.
Mr. James F. Mellue, in a slashing anj,
we must suy, a very ably written book, en
titled, "J lory (Juecn of fieotn itrul her latent

desired in the w ay of a critical demolition
of James Anthony Fronde.
It is beyond our present purpose lo set
before our readers Ihe method and sub

Our readers would thus he forestalled, or
at least their mental appetite would be,
probably, weakened, for wliat is in store
for them iu All . Moline's hook, w hich wc
urge them to procure.
Suffice it to say, that those easy old
dupes—whose accurate knowledge of his
tory will compare favorably, may be, with
the snail's conception of geography,—and
wlm have made unseemly baste to blow
Mr. Fronde's trumpet for him, will make

If Mr. Fronde s histories he lie lions, his

been deeply Interested In what may be
tailed Jewish character and Hebrew phil
osophy, and have long wished to hear or
read a characteristic history or compen
dium of the subject, as it presented itself to
our mind. Dr. Isaac M. Wise, editor or
the Israelite, and a most profound liberal
Jewish scholar—in a mimic rof conversa
tions, gome years since, and since the
death of our beloved tutor and friend Dr.
Rupliall of New York, gave us a sketch of
tvliat he termed the philosophy of the
Jews, and so astonished us with his care
fully worded hut liberal thoughts, that
they Imvo been, in a measure, inspirations
to us ever since.
We see, by the Cincinnati Enquirer
that the Doctor is delivering a course of
lectures iu that eily on tho subject, the
tirst of which, in a brief synopsis, we pre
sent to our readers to-day. If any one is
curious to know why we attach w much
Importance to this subject, we Imvo this to

OP THE JEWS.
Or. Wise is in the habit of annually de
livering a course of lectures upon some
philosophical or literary subject connected
with the history of Iris race, and this year
lie Iras selected thu “Philosophy anil
Philosophers of the Jews." Jt is a topic
eminently adapted to the extensive arid
profound erudition of tire learned Kabbi,
and one which cannot fail to he illustrated
by the deep thought which has character
ized every lecture he has given in the
past. To most men the history of Israel
is confiucd to tho Biblical narrative or the
pages of Josephus, varied only by an oc
casional and very imperfect reference to
the persecutions the hatiuii has miller
gone, particularly in Spain mid Russia,
hut more or less in different by-gone ages,
at the bunds of almost every people on
earth. But in the history of the Jows
there is u mine of wealth undiscovered,
except by learned men like l)r Wise,
whom Cineinnatiiins are proud of placing
hr the very front ranks of the Tal
mudic scholars of the age. From the
earliest times, with a few brief intervals
up to the present the history of thu Jews
bus literally teemed with bright examples
in every branch of literature mid art, and
us Dr. Wise proposes to bring down his
story to so late n date us Mendelssohn the
Brand, lie will till up a gap in history
with which but very few are conversant,
uml every literary man will be glad to
hear that u lecture will be delivered at tire
I’lum street Temple every Friday evening
until the course is complete.
Yesterday evening was the introducto
| ry lecture, and Dr. Wise commenced by
saying that as so much dogmatism and
mysticism had been spoken and published
it was time for the voice of reason to be
heard, uud accordingly ho should treat
the philosophy and philosophers of the
Jews with some regard to plain common
sense, and endeavor to make liis whole
course of lectures us popular ns the subject
would permit. He then brietly referred to
viiriotisc definitions of philosophy, and said
" l’liilosupliy is tire system of the Kosnros
brought into ideas distinguished from re
ligion iu that re ligiou Ims tire authority
of books uud of tradition, while philosophy
points to reason only, and its only author
ity is the humau mind. Philosophy is fur
ther distinguished from religion in that
religion is a finished system ; whereas
philosophy is never finished, but ever ex- j
(rands with tho process of the ages and
the growtli of thu human nrind.
It can never propound with binding
elfeet, because its increase in thought and
learning never ceases ; uud while religion
enjoins us to obey God, philosophy' bids
us to listen to reason. Tor all this,
however, they are twin sisters, and it is
yet an open question whether nil the dif
ferent cults are not organically the oil
spriug of one. I think,” he went on to say,
"that that is the only true religion which
is based upon philosophy, and that only
the true philosophy which is based upon
the natural religious conceptions of man
kind. There is. then, aChristain philoso
phy, a Jewish, a lirnbmin and a Moham
medan philosophy; and I must go yet fur
ther, and add a Catholic and Frotostnut
philosophy. All commence with religion,
because iu religion are hound up the doc
trines of the relations between God and
man aud man. Therefore also, philoso
phy may bo said to he cradled in the re
ligion iu which wo are born.
However high the ideas of a man tuay
rise, they are still inextricably inlet twined
with the religious sentiments instilled in
his curliest y ears. Hence most believers
iu the religion of their childhood are hon
est in their convictions, vvheteaa the con
trary is too frequently the case with pros
elytes. The Christian may become a Jew,
or the Jew a Christian, hut iu any such 1
change eaily religious impressions are
rarely, if ever, thoroughly eradicated.
Consequently the origin of all systems of
philosophy, such as those of Greece,
France. Holland and Germany are plainly
marked, ami as the Gentile nations have
their distinct systems, so has Judaism its
own, a Jewish philosophy, written by Jews,
with Jewish conceptions, despite all the
efforts which have been made to strip it of
its Jewish garb. In the lectures which
follow 1 shall therefore necessarily dwel
upon the scientific, literary and social iul
Alienees which have presided ut its birth
or guided its career.
"After the Hihle was translated into
Greek a school of Eclectics arose, who en
deavored to harmonize reason with faith,
ami from Philo we learn the theories of
the thinkers of Alexandria. They, how
ever, are more nearly akin to an investi
gation iuto the origin of Christianity than
an inquiry into the history of the'jews.
T he 1 rimtarian doctrine, or at least its un
broken permaueuce. must also be attribu
ted to Philo, for had it not been for him
the Christians would, I think, instead of a
Trinity in Unity, have adopted three gods.
Then came the age of casuistry, antagon
istic to philosophy, and after Constantine
the schools were closed and no one dared
to attempt to reason philosophy upon any
subject in which religion or even politics
were involved. Among tho Jews the
Uubbinied system prevailed, and as men
are ruled by terror more easily than by
any other agent, care was taken to keep
up the idea of a goqd, active devil, with
plenty of minor devils, and an infusion of
fire and brimstone.
Superstition was pre-eminent, and tlie
people bowed their heads and said amen.
IScfurcMohummcd was boru an obscure
Jewish sect, culled the Karreites, muse,
who did not believe the Talmud, and while
the Uabbinists leaned upon authority, the
Karreites relied upon reason, and thus
they were tlie lirst Jewish philosophers.
And when the Arabs captured Spain and
began to study Greek, nnithematics and
medicine, the Rabbinical Jews began to
study philosophy, and of these Saddaiah
was the first, (or the Greek philosophy
was redressed in Arab garb, and Jews ar
gued with Jews, and Mohammedan with
Mohammedan, philosophy arose from the
clash of thought. Its cradle was in Spain
Portugal, IJagdad it then passed into
Italy, and thence into Holland and Ger
many. The thinkers of these countries
in the middle ages, so frequently called
blasphemous fanatics, were the very men
who preserved the times, in which they
livid from Hie veil of one black night,
and alone made the civilisation of the
nineteenth century possible. It is the cu
rcer and thoughts of these men of tlie
Jewish race who have contributed to the
attainment of this great end.”
