Mas Hill took possession of three tenement ' bouses la -ooa of tba wont court of London. Later aba added 11 tenements to ber possessions. Tber ware la a wretchedly filthy and dilapidated condition. A tenant could have no repair made. If be didnt like thing be waa told to a-o. That to tba anawer siren time and again by landlord , to Xew-York when Improvement are asked, and that la why there are eo few complaint. Tenement oooupant are in deaily fear of their landlord. The tyranny which landlords exercise over tenant to aeldum appreciated. Id the tenement taken by Mia Hill tba Occupant were of the lowest class. Bbe collected . tba raot herself, weekly, and insisted on prompt payment. This waa aer nrsi ruie, and It waa made for the sake of the tenants. Nothing la 0 demoralising as. debts bans-log over the beads of the poor. Tba discharge of an obligation builds up self-respect, and aelf-resneot w I tie first prere.iulai.eof character. Another rula of Mis Hill waa to set a right exempt to the tenants. The halls, passages, awl couru were kept scrupulously clean aud in perfect repair. .' 1 learned to know,' she said, ' that people grow ashamed to abuse a place tnat realijr well cared ior. stias niu auueu bu assembly room to ber tenements, provided amusements, and In a few years changed the entire character of the tenement, bbe didn't e-li ka sentiment of a clersrrman recently made that the poor must always be with us that the well to do may practice charity." Prof. Adler saki that the great evil In New-York waa that owners never went near tbeir tenements. It we an agent who stood Ixstween the nocket and the conscience. Poverty often aaelted the heart. Extreme wretchedness promoted vice ot the worst doscrlption, but aa Ore tempered steel, so misfortune olten tempered jnto the raret eauellenca the souls of the purs and good. He commended Miss H til's example to the women of New.York. Tbey were better suited to work among the poor than men. and here was a new career opened tor women or culture, tluoh work as that accomplished by Mia Hill, however, did not alone suflic. In New-York the walla of adjacent bouses otten rendered homes unsanitary. There abould be, tba speaker urged, an act passed by the Legislature, like the Cross act of the Knallsh Parliament, compelling the owner of unsaultarv bouses to sell their possessions. They couldn't be Induoed to sell, tbeea owner of tenement, for tbey were realizing such enormous profits. The profit on the worst class of tenement In New-Y ork was far in ex-' eass of toe income from the finest houses on the best street. Hut tbey could ba forced to aelL Prof. Adler urged the formation of a building company to be composed of private citizens, who sbou'd receive a loan from the public treasury, either city or State. The company abould bo restricted trom taking more than a moderate percenUre on the investment. Tbla company should be empowered to rebuild the bad tenements and to put up new ones. A private corporation, under htate supervision and using State funds, could overcome the limitations which barred the way of Oct via Hill, hucb a -compear should oon line itself to per cent. Interest. Then an additional t per rent, abould be set aside as an insurance fund for the benefit of tenanta In case of bard time. This would be a : benefit to oompany and tenanta alike. He bad outlined bis plan to a few friend, who thoUarht tt feasible, " Now," said Prof. Adler, M I will speak of one of the greatest plague soots In NewOTork. It Is Tho bend' in Baxter and Mulberry street, and la one of the most abominable place that exist on tba face of tbe earth. It Is made by the curving In of two blocks. It to bounded on tba west by Baxter-street, On tba east by Mott-atreet. on the south by Park-street, and on the north by Bayard-street. On Baxter-street IU front la three time tba length of an avenue block, where ten houses aro found on an aver-agw. In 'The Bend' there are 47 front houses, soma sis stories high, and in the one square no loss than M rear butldine. On my first vlait to Tbe Bend' I waa struck by tbe number ot . Undertakers' shops in the vicinity. (Don't laugh, don't laugh: It to too serious for that.) 1 bare tabulated tne mortuary statistics of this vtla plaoa.

The policy of breaking tbe Five Point Into small block should be followed here. Pub-Ira sentiment can bring this about. The evils with which we are con I routed are so treat that if there to any force In the moral law Implanted In our natures they must ba changed, They can and will ba changed." Plans that have been for several weeks under discussion culminated yesterday afternoon in taa organisation, at the rooms of tbe Young Men's Hebrew Association, of tba Sanitary Aid Society for the Tenth Ward of tea city of New. York. Tbe movement for thl organization, was Started by Prof. Felix Adler, as part of his project of tenement house reform. Nona of tba notlemea who attended yesterday's meeting bte In tbe Tenth Ward, but the general plan will ot suffer on that account. Prof . Adler's pur. pose to to bring about tba organisation of tenement reform societies, whose work will ba sufficiently localized and subdivided to cover the entire city. Tbe experience of bis labors baa convinced him of the futility of several oraranUa-tlons In one Urge Held, as baa been tbe case heretofore; and yesterday's action was the first decisive step toward providing for many organization, each with only such territory to work la a It may ba able to handle thoroughly. Tba section that will come under the supervision of tbe Tenth Ward society extends from Houston-street, on the north, to Division-street,' and from tbe Bowery to Norfolk-street. Members of the society, together with persons wbom tbey mar employ, will begin this week to Intellect the tenement houaea within this territory with tbe view of bmrnlna tbe general aanitarv condition not only ot tbe houses but alto of their oecupanta. A report of this survey will be made to tba Directors of tbe society, and on this report detailed work will be laid out for thorough Inspection on which to lose complaint to the . Hoard of Health or Grand Jur, or on which to , baa other measure of correction. Tbe practical , torn that tbl later work will take will be in the assignment of Inspectors to specified street or block ot tenement bouses. It to not intended that the society, although oomposedof Hebrews, shall ba in any way restricted In its effort by . sectarian considerations. Prof. Adler attended yesterday's meeting. aadV after explaining bis view of immediate Be!, aa outlined above, said that the natural development of such a movement would ba the formation of similar societies, to be governed by a general council made up ot representatives ot each wbo would direct the reform. Improve-atent would advance-rapidly when It reached thiastara, ba thought, and tba reform would ba Itkeiv toea to attach to Itself the supervision of ' model lodging bouse and modul tenement bouse construction, having for Its object ventilation and cleanliness In such bouses. There waa press tna need, be said, ot dwellings built with the bent ranltary appliances, and they could eventually ba Secured bv a persistent and capable extension of tbe reform in the way it was now starting. Joseph Blumentbat waa chosen President of the society; Isaac Bernbelmer and E. B- A. 8e-beaaaa, Vlee-Piaeldents; tYedertok Nathan. Treasuesr. and Lee Kohna, Secretary. The Hev. pre. Jacob.

Tbah Hospital Saturday and Sunday Assoc Is tkm. of this city, bat Issued It annual statement and appeal. The statement give with particularity and la a oomprenenxive form tbe exact status of tba hospital, and, so far as figures can tan tba story, a complete account of their work. Upon tbto howlng.tbe association bases Its an. peal. Tbe statement shows that SO hospitals now da-riro support through this channel. Tba cost of maintaining these Institutions last year footed up to 1MSJH0 84. To meet tbto outlay there to a regular income to be Absolutely depended upon, (of Invested funds.) of only $llt2H C while tba amount received from paying patients aggre- fste 1131.241 l. Tbe total number of patient rested last year waa 11. a, and ot that number V.H72 were free patients and it was to maintain this feature of the work, and. If possible, enlarge Its scops and Increase It efficiency, that the annual collection wss Instituted. Tbat It ba In a considerable degree fulfilled Its purpose Is conclusively demonstrated by a comparison of statements of different years. In liwl tba whole number of free patients treated In tbe 17 hospitals then constituting tbe association was s.aM. During the past year these same hospitals increased the number to sUKW. That this increase could not have been maintained without tbe direct aid received from tbe general hospital collection will hardly require demonstration. It ba been maintained in anme nusrter that the ireneral collection in terfere with the procurement of gifts at other time than Hospital Saturday or Sunday, but this contention Is obviously refuted by tbe fiirure of tba statement, showing that tbe Income of these hospital in lt waa by $12i.7t 20 greater than in UWl. and that S40.1MB W or this amount was derived from an increase to the permanent fund. What tba status of tbe permanent funds ot these hospitals would be to-day, were there no yeoeral collection. It M, of course, impossible to say. In London a few of tbe lanrer hospital have suffered a losa of Income. In tbat city there is an annual general collection. In New-York all tbe leading hospital are in tbe enjoyment of an Increase of revenue from their Invested funds. Here there I also an annual general collection. Surely the leaxt that can be claimed for tbe New-York abowing to tbat it shall be permitted to stand as an offset to the London exhibit; and. If this be granted, the cause for tbe London decrease of income must be sought in some other direction. It to not far to seek, and. as has been explained by the Kecrt-tary of tbe London Collection Fund, to readily found In tbe fact that tbe Investment of these institution is in land, and tbat the agricultural depretalon in England during the past lew years amnlv i.eununta for everr deficiency. In tbl city an important source of revenue on which these Institutions have In the past de- Knded is likely to tail them this year, and perns for tbe I uture altogether, amounting In the aggregate to fcJ5,UU0. At the last session ot tbe Legislature an act waa passed tbe practical operation of which will be, it is said, to appropriate to other uses (the police pension fund) all tbe moneys heretofore given to the eleemosynary Institutions of tbe city from the funds contributed to the treasury through tba Board of Excise. Earnest appeal Is therefore made for increased rlfta In the Saturday and Sunday collection, especlsli.v to tbe general fund, tbat the hospitals may not be compelled on account of diminished resources to restrict their growing workof charity. Last year the collection aggregated close upon $46,000. This year, to make up the loss of excise money, it ought to be fully I7&.0U0 to enable tbe hospitals to forward their work tba next 12 months on even its present scale.

The Hebrew Free School Association held It annual meeting yesterday at the school-house. No. 208 East Broadway. An encouraging advance in the association's work was shown by the reports of tba officers and of the various committee. Two Industrial schools and two kindergartens are now under this management. Tbey were started in 1876 with an attendance of 63) children, which has increased to Lm For religious and Industrial instruction tbe cost of each per capita Is $4. wnile for tbe maintenance of tba klndcrrarten branches the coat per capita la $M In tba kindergarten expense 1 Inoluded tbe supply ot clothing, shoes, and dinners to the children. Tba number of dinners furnished in the past vear was 28.0UU. Tbe Held of labor was extended In several new and beneficent directions during tbe year. In conjunction with tbe Orphan Asvium management and that of tbe I'm ted Hebrew Charities tbe association has organized a Technical Instl-stut for the training of boys of 12 years old and upward in mechanical branches. Tbe undertak-Inr has already demonstrated its wisdom and desirability, as the school Is in successful operation. An organization baa also been started known as "Our Own," wbich is Intended to inculcate among tbe children a spirit of lnde- Endenoe. Every child of the Free School be-nirs to it, and It Is supported by penny weekly contributions, the money above expenses, which are nominal, being turned Into a fund to be applied to tba amusement of the children In excursions and entertainments. A gift or $7,500 last Winter from Jacob H. Schlff enabled tbe association to start a library. Nearly S3.0U0 ot tbat sum has so far been spent in books and other equipment. Tbe books are, ot course, ot tne juvenile class, ana have been selected with great care. Tbe report of the IJbrary Committee shows tbat since March. when the library opened, the number of children wbo have availed themselves or It has averaged UO monthly, resulting In tho circulation among theta of more than 3.700 books. Tba arraduates of the Free School have formed an Alumni association durina the year, which promises to be an active and helpful adjunct to the main association, and from tbe Industrial school a large number of girls have been given self-supporting employment during the year by business bouse. Tbe association elected tbe following officers for the ensuing year: President M. & Isaacs; Vice-President Lriah Herrmann j Treasurer N. Cowen: Secretary Henry M. May; Directors Jacob H. ttchiff, Jacob Budwe, Simon Herman: i Trustees Newman Cowen, Jacob H. hcblff, Simon Herman, Moses Ottinger, Henry Budge, Llppman Htern, William Strauss, Henry 8. May, A. Kerbs. There was some discussion In rea-ard to admitting ladies to membership In the association at a reduced initiation fee. Criah Herrmann said that no better step could betaken toward promoting tbe efficiency of the schools, partlouiarly the Industrial branch. Mark Ash suggested that under a reduced fee many persona would come into tbe association wbo could aa well pay full price. He thought it would be be wiser for members to pay Into tbe treasury tba difference between the proposed fee and tbe present fee in cases deserving such Inducement, so that th books ralaht show full fees paid In. Th matter was left with the Board of Director. At tba close of the meeting the folding doors opening Into the rear schoolroom were pushed aside, revealing a room full of children, wbo sang th hymn of the Feast of Dedication, (ChanukahJ which the Hebrews are celebrating this week. A HORSE JOCKET 1ST TltOCDLE. Joseph Maccarter, a Belgian : youth. whose real name Is Adnet, and who is said to be a grandson of a former Master of Horse to the King ot Belgium, upon whom tbe title of Count was bestowed, was arraigned In the Jefferson Market Police Court yesterday, charged by Mrs. Lettle Bond, of No. VU West Twenty-nfth-strett, with feionmus assault. Mrs. Bond said that on Saturday Maocarter cam to ber house with two negro lada and offered to sell ber a sealskin sacque and tour sealskin bats. She suspected the articles were stolen and said she would send for a policeman, whereupon Maccarter produced a revolver and threatened to blow out ber brain. He and bt companion then went away and Mr. Bond notified tbe police. Tbat same nfarht Maccarter was arrested a be was about to re-enter tba bouse with a young man named Jmee Tlernan. . Maccarter said he waa a Jockey and had ridden at different time for Pierre Lortilard aud ether well-known horsemen.

Beber Newton preached yesterday mornii g about tba growth of tbe belief in tba second coming of Christ, its origin tn Israelitish thought, the changing phases of its development, its Christianity, and its flowering In tbe faith of tl e coming of a divine order on earth. Mr. New on began by tracing tbe roots of this belief In tbe Hebrew hope of a Messiah. Christianity," 1 a said, - to tbe child of Judaism. It to a free rer.di ring of tbe prophetic religion of IiraeL" Co itlnulng. Mr. Newton argued that one of the most striking features of Israel's li Te was its MesUmio ex pectations. Th I waa at first a dream or political power on th part of the plucky little nation that now fo und an opportunity to prove Its genius for emi lire. Tbe political dream waa charred with 1 lie ethical spirit of Israel: the coming Ring wi to be sucn a righteous ruler as Is pictured in the Seventy-second Psalm. Tbe band of destiny rudely broke this dream only to leave the ,nobl r aspirations free to vision a loftier dream t tie dawn of the day when the purified nation, the righteous suffering servant of Jehovah, ah uld lead tbe peoples of earth Into the knowle Ige of tbe Lord. A curious tbe logy, a composite of Jewish snd Gentile superst tlons. Mr. Newton mid. grew around this dou le germ. We trace the growth of the popular superstition about the Messiah in tbe age prior lo Jesus, throutrh such books as Enoch. A cles rl defined belief shaped ltelf. in every respect the very belief which we find later on In Chrl itlanity a pre-exlstent Messiah, the elect and onocaled one" of Enoch: departing from earth ' o visit the spiritual world: returning from tt e heavens clothed with Divine authority and p jwer to raise tbe dead, to judae mankind, and o Introduce the millennium on earth; the Mel rew Utopia. The traditional doctrine of Cnr st's second advent was In the air waiting to crys alllze around Jesus. He was received at first by his followers as tbe Hebrew Messiah Tbey were, ever expecting him to set up the throne of a political Me! slab, asking " Lord, wilt Tbou at this time restore tbe kingdom of Israel r" Hisdath. which, for a while broke the spell of thli power, was, after they had become persuaded of his continued life, inevitably seen by them t he the carryin out of the popular belief of Ii reel. He had. they thought, gone intotbo spirit world. He would surely come again with po er and with great glory to judge thn wnrlrl Inmun H earthly kingdom, rultnir mankind from (Jerusalem, and establishing the perfect order ubon earth. He would, then, come shortly. He naght come any day snd at any hour. This wii the Inspiring belief of the early Christians. huE It waa essentially the Jewish dream of Utopia, with a new charging of ethical and spiritual f rce from tbe light or jesus introduced miracul uslv. In Paul's mil d. Mr. Newton pointed out, this belief graduall r faded out Into a hope and faith in the ultimab coming- in of the divine order on earth, etudiei cbronologicailv, his epistles demonstrated Ithis d velopment very clearly. Tbessalenians contrasted with Komans made it particularly plain. The chanire came about throuirh manr co-operatinar causes. The i pea ted disappointment of ardent hope at last opened Paul's leves. His travels brought him face to faoe with the real nrolilems of earth, His narrow JeSvLih superstitions died out amid tbe manly cosinopolitanlsm of religion. Tauaht of tbe Spirit. Desus came to be considered no lonaer a Jewish Messiah, but the bead of hu manity, from Whom tt was to go toward Its ideal slowly, ora-aofpally, and a new earth should rise beneath new heavens. Before Paul died be had lost his Jewish dream and bad gained a human faith, k faith which was. as Powell bad beautifully expressed it, hope made wide." He stamped this large thought and aspiration upon tbe young charch. The Catholic epistles showed tbat the cburih had settled down to regenerate human socienr. Like all creative epochs the formation period of Christianity typed the slow development of its succeeding aaes. Tbe church had been gradually passing from tbe crude and callow belief af ancient Israel into tbe large and human faith) in an oreanic regeneration of society, through which tbe ideal is to come out upon the actual, and man will grow divine as the Spirit of ilod breathes out laws snd Institutions and manners and arts and sciences and economics toward uerfectiou. " This.' suid Mr. Nowton in conclusion, " is tbe faith In wbich we are strong to I labor and to wait, knowing tbat there Is a goof time coming." TEMPER AXCE -JF0RK IN THE SOUTH. An audience that filled Chickering Hall yesterday afternoon listened to addresses by George W. Bain, of Kentucky, and J. Noble Stearns, in behalf of the f reedmen In the South. Tbe meeting bras held under tbe auspices of the National Temperance Society, wbich is sending a representative through the South stirring up Interest in total abstinence for the individual and prohibition by the State." Mr. Steams said tbe temperance missionary had been attending: ineetinaa of colored clergy men. In a meetina in Georgia 15 colored Meth odist preachers, within a few days, had pledtred themselves to preach tbe cause and the motto of tbe sodtety, of whose work tbey bad never heard before. Meetings had been held where for tie first time whites and blacks bad Joined together in tbe temperance cause. Tbrouah tbd preachers the society booed to ac complish a grand Southern work. Publications of the socle Dy were betas- scattered throuirh the South, and Mr. Stearns wanted money to scatter more. It bid been asked to arrange for a week's meeting In I New-orleana during tne exposi tion. It was Intended tbat every person attend- Ing tbe exposition should have a temperance paper handed to mm. Mr. Bain, of Kentucky, made a strenuous ap peal for the colored men South, who. he said. were great k addicted to drinking. The great Question of tbe colored race was tbe drink question, the soul slavery. They swarmed about tbe sal 0009) as flies around molasses, and the Southern painter never bsd more control over them than e saloon keeper in the South had to-day. Liberty was tbe watchword of the race. and they seemed to think to take away the saloons and! drink was taking away their liberty. Mr. Bain believed tbe neirro Question would be solved If Mr. Stearns and his society could make tbe dearo believe it was to his advantage to keep away from tbe liquor saloons. 3IRS.WAipH GETS BACK HER DIAMONDS. John O Connor, the quartermaster of the steam e i City ot Fall Biver, who was arrested for attei apting to dispose of some diamonds on Friday 1 ist, was brought up for examination yesterday 1 1 tho Tombs Police Court. Robert E. Walsh, the stevedore, wbo claims tbe property. was in attendance, and he gave ample proof as to his ownership of tbe gems. The examina tion lastdd only a few miniites. O'Connor would noq explain how he came in posses sion of I tbe Jewels. He stuck to the statement Itbst be boug-bt them for $t00 xrom a inena, out ne could not recall bis name. nor could be put the olticers on bis track. He acted in a I lost mysterious manner. The police assured hi tn tbat no action would be taken aaainst bin i, aa tbe diamonds were lost throuirh the carele sness ot Mrs. Walsh, ant! it waa no crime to gSin possession of another person's lost property. O'Connor, however, thought this was a scheme to get mm in the clutches or tbe law. and be wo a la not deviate from tbe storv he tnid when flrsti arrested. Justice White ordered the diamonds to be given to Mr. Walsh. O'Connor breathed i sigh of relief, and when the macis- trate discharged him he made tracks for the street. i mS CHECK NOT HONORED. Edgar K. Rhoads, an engraver in the em ploy of Riflley A Co.. was arraigned in the Jefferson Markok Police Court yesterday on the com plaint of Frederick D. Hughes, tbe proprietor of the remorne." Hu?bes complained that Rhoads h id induced him to cash a check for $50 on the First National Bank of Mahanoy Citv.
