Abstract: For two distinct prime numbers $p$, $q$, we compute the rational cuspidal subgroup $C(pq)$ of $J_0(pq)$ and determine the $\ell $-primary part of the rational torsion subgroup of the old subvariety of $J_0(pq)$ for most primes $\ell $. Some results of Berkovic on the nontriviality of the Mordell-Weil group of some Eisenstein factors of $J_0(pq)$ are also refined.
