THE ROMAN QUESTION.
Count Cavour'ss Speech Rome ths Capi-
ital of Italy.
From the important speech delivered in the
(Sardinian Chamber of Deputies, on tho 25th of
jriarcn, Dy uount uavour, we mane tne louow
ing extracts. It will be seen that tho location
of the capital of Italy is in a fair way of defi
nOlfE THE CAPITAL.
The first truth to be proclaimed is, that it is
impossible to conceive a constituted Italian
kingdom without Home for Us capital. If wo
have a right if it is our duty to wish to pos
sess Uoine, it is becanse of this impossibility.
Eminent and sincere men mar feel a prefer
ence for one town oranother, but it is incontesta
ble that if Borne were once our capital, all
discussion on this point would thenceforth be
impossible. The fact alone would bring about
an absolute and universal agreement. I avow
that, personally, I perhaps prefer the simple
and plain streets of my native city to the an
cient and modern monuments of tho Eternal
City. But my resolution is taken, like that of
ay countrymen like that and I speak now
as the representative of Turin of the noble
city which is resigned to that sacrifice which
the country demands of it. We must go to
Borne, but without trenching upon the inde
pendence of the Pope, without bringing; the
Church under the domination of the State,
If, though I believe that lojpe impossible,
France fonnd herself powerless to oppose our
entry into Home, we would not, in order to
effect that entry, use violence towards her. Let
us not imitate Austria in the iogratitude avow
ed with a deplorable courage by the lips of one
of her statesmen.
DUTIES or SARDINIA TO NAPOLION AMD THE
When, in 1859, we asked for the support of
France, the Emperor did not dissemble to him
self the difficulties of tho situation in which
this war would place him with respect to the
Court of Rome. We cannot, after having ac
cepted the boon, aggravate tho embarrassment
in which it may involve the benefactor. If we
can succeed in convincing Catholics that the
reunion of Romo with the rest of Italy cannot
place the church in a position of dependence,
tne question will nave maae a great step to
wards solution. Many conscieutlous people
think, indeed, that if the Parliament were in
Rome, and die King at the Quirinal, the Pope
would lose much of his independence, and
would be nothing more than the grand almoner
or the chaplain of the King. If these fears
were well founded, I should not hesitate to
say that this reunion would be fatal, not only
to Catholicism, but to Italy. No greater calam
ity can befall a people than the concentration,
in the hands of the Government, of spiritual
and temporal power. When these powersare
united, liberty disappears, the rule of caliphs
prevails. It will never be so in Italy. Let us
examine, under all its aspects, this question of
the influence of Rome wi.h Italy upon the in
dependence of the spiritual power. Now, in
the first instance, does the temporal power ren
der the Pontiff really independent ? If it were
so, I would hesitate to solve the problem. But
no person caa maintain such a view in the
times when sovereigns, resting upon the Diviue
right, regard their domination as a right of ab
solute property over men and things.
THE TEMPORAL POWER. ,
I am not the defender of tho temporal power,
but I must be just towards it. I hold neither
the Pope nor his ministers to be responsible
for the atrocious acta to which, at certain points,
the reaction tended. These acts ouly prove the
deplorable influence which such a regime exer
cises over human character. I believe I have
sufficiently established the antagonism which
exists between the Holy See and tho popula
tions. If that be so, this power is not for the
Pope a guaranty of independence. It is said
to be necessary for Catholic society, and that
it ought to be guarantied by the Catholic Pow
ers. Are human sacrifices still necessary to
render the gods propitious ? Is it in the name
tl- el Tli up. e .1 14 !.
U! uuu wuu gave uis me iur mu wurm, me
sacrifice of a nation should bo demanded for
his representative? It is said : But the Pope
may conciliate the people by reforms ; and those
who think thus make effort to obtain from the
Pope such concessions, never suffering them
selves to oe ciiscourageu Dy remains.
But this is asking what the Pope cannot
grant ; lor his position as a political sovereign
is subordinate to his rank as head of the Church,
since bis temporal power ought to be to him no
more than a guaranty, a ealeguurd for his spirit
ual power, which latter must stand supreme.
By muking concessions, he would violate hit
duties as a Pontiff. He may accept and tole
rate certain institutions, but he may not conse
crate them. Thus, for example, he tolerate!
piril marriage in Prance, but he canuot pro
claim It in his own dominions. It is the sami
with a host of other institutions which arc op
posed to Catholic precepts, but of which It is
nevertheless, necetsary to admit tho existence
Qhe Pope should not be reproached lor tha
which is in reality not obstinacy, but firmness
and lor which I bold that Uatholics ougntio u
grateful to mm ns a i
duty. I have often
meritorious fidelity to hl
combated tho opinion ot
those who have insisted that the Pope should
grant reforms, and have blamed him for not
At the Congress of Paris I was asked to point
out which might be exacted of him. I refused
to indicate any. I professed openly the opin
ions which I nm npholding hero j and, in con
Junction with M. Minghettl, who took an im
portant part in these negotiations, I declared
that the only means of governing those coun
tries without military occupation was the abso
lute separation of the spiritual from the tempo
ral power. All theso efforts will be defeated
by the radical impossibilities which result from
the confusion of the two powers. Europe has
long been laboring to invent reforms for Tur
key: there is not an effort which has not been
made for this purpose: it has been sought to
reconcile there the rights of civil life with the
Government, such as it is there constituted.
The attempt has not succeeded, and never will
succeed ; the union of the two powers renders
itsTViluro inevitable. Thus the temporal pow
er does not make the Pope independent.
TUB INDEPENDENCE or THE POPE.
Can it be said that in losing it, he will only
change the form of his subjection ? No ; we
can give him the independence of which he
stands so mu h in need. It is precisely the
separation of the powers which will give it to
him. When the Church is once emancipated
from all connection with the temporal authority,
and separated from the State by distinctly
marked limits, the liberty of the Holy See will
no longer have to suffer from the shackles im
posed upon it by concordats and the preroga
tives ot the ciyil power, which the temporal
power of the Court of Rome has alone rendered
necessary up to the present time. I believe
thnt every sincere Catholic desires, above all
things, such an eofrauc lisement. The only dif
ficulty is to discover by what guaranties this
liberty of the Church will be assured. We will
give it ample guaranties : we will inscribe tho
principle of the reciprocal independence of the
church and of the Mate in the fundamental
statute of the kingdom, and we will insure by
all possible means its complete realization.
But tho surest guaranty is the thoroughly
catholic character of the Italian people. Italy
has often made great efforts for the reform of
ecclesiastical discipline; but she has never
raised berhand against the religion with which
it is connected. .The country of Arnold, ol
Brescia, of Dante, of Savanurola, of Sarpi, of
Oiannone, has ever, like them, sought only the
reform of the Church ; that ardent desire has
always been accompanied by the firm determin
ation that the Church, purified, should subsist
and become more free. That freedom will be
better insured by the love of 20,000,000 of citi
zens than a few mercenaries. It is said these
hopes are fallacious ; all your proposals and ne
gotiations are repulsed. I shall not enter into
any detail upon this delicate point. I admit
that, up to this time, none of our efforts have
succeeded, but I also declare that, heretofore,
we have never explained our intentions openly
and fully, as we explain them now. We may,
therefore, still cherish some hope.
History shows us that Rome, invaded by the
Spaniards of Charles V, saw the Pope some
time afterwards crown Charles V, and ally him
self with him. Why may we not see the same
change wrought ou Pius IX at the present
day 7 11 ut il the .Tope should repulse us, as
he has hitherto done, wo shall not cease to re
main faithful to the same principles. Arrived
at Some, we shall yroclaxm the separation of
tne unurcn from tne mate, ana the tweity oj the
Unurcn. When tnis has been done, and conse
crated by the representatives of the nation, and
when the veritable tendencies of Itulians and
their sympathy for the religion of their fathers
have been made evident in the face of Europe,
tho great majority of Catholics will approve,
and will cause to fall on tho riant head the re
sponsibility of the struggle into which the Court
ot Home would Rave sougnt to enter with tne
nation. At the risk of Deing considered Uto
pian, I avow my belief that when these princi
ples have been proclaimed and consecrated by
you, the soul ot Pius IX, opening itself anew
to the generous sentiments which earned for
him such hearty approval some years ago, will
stimulate him to seek the i mmortal glory of
having reconciled the Italian n ation with the
church, and religion with liberty.
Mrs. Mary Gaines is thus described, as she
appeared at a late Presidential levee, leaning
on the arm of a young gentleman, a relative ot
her family : " Her figure, short and slight ; her
weight, perhaps one hundred pounds. She
wore a Quaker colored water silk dress, cut low
over a full bust ; the very short sleeves reveal
cd a finely-proportioned and fair white arm,
that would have graced the belle of the assem
bly. Thongh ber age is about fifty, no one
would estimate it over thirty five. She wore
bright gold bracelets upon her wrists. Her
hair, which is black and glossy, was confined
in a netting of gold lace, and two long bright
curls fell, one upon either shoulder. Her eyes
are black, restless, and expressive. Two small
ostrich plumes of white and blue were par
tially concealed in the dark folds of her hair.
Her step is elastic, her manner graceful She
is very conversational with her acquaintances,
and her countenance indicates unusual intel
lectual ability. Thus let your readers form a
conception ot Mrs. Gaines, as, with a magnifi
cent white camelia upon her bosom, she elided
round and round amid tho gay and happy
throng in the great east room ot the President's
The Youno Ladies E.scouruaiNa the Vol
cnteers sou Plnsacola. The Atlanta South
trn Confederacy, recording the arrival and de
parture, on the 1st inst., of several companies
of Georgia troops for Pensacola, says :
" Two hundred and twenty-three young
ladies of tho Atlanta Female institute came
in a body, and were formed in a line at the
Atlanta Hotel, under Prolessors Ma) son aud
Howard. Each vouug lady had a small flue
of the Confederate Slates, made of paper cum
brie, with the 'bars' and 'stars' beautifully
printed thereon. Each flag also had the in
scription, ' From the young ladies of the At
lanta Femalo Institute. None but the brave
deserve the fair.' Miss Kane made a few re
marks, wheu all the young ladies in a body
stepped forward and presented to each member
ot the Gute City Guards one ol the very beau
liful miniature tings which they held in their
Hands. Three cheers for the ladies of the Fe
male Institute were given with a hearty good
will Dy all who were present, and then three
I more were given by the crowd for the Guards,
' " At two o'clock, all the soldiers had takei
their seats in the cars, and tho train of the
Macon and Western road moved off with thir
teen passenger cars attached, amidst the burn
ing of cannon, and the cheering and Bhouting
of unnumbered throngs, and waving of hand
kerchiefs by the ladies from the windows and
Vert Embarrassing; on Both Sides. It
is strange what mistakes sometimes happen
when ladies are going shopping. A nice,
precise old bachelor, the pink of politeness and
essence of dignified propriety, is the owner of
the principal "dry goods" emporium of ono of
our large Inland villages. He regards the la
dies as " fearful and wonderful " is a little
afraid of them, to confess the truth, and, as the
saying goes, wouldn't touch ono of them With
a ten-foot pole. The ouly semblanco that he
tolerates is in shape of "dummies," of which
he has two or three for the appropriate dis
play of lace, shawls, bonnets, and dresses.
Coming out of an inner-room, the other day, in
great haste, he saw, as be imagined, one of
these figures standing directly in his way, and
he very unceremoniously picked it up, round
the waist, and swung it to one side. Conceive
his feelings when a voice from under a bonnet
squeaked out : "Here I what are you doing?
I'll tell my husband." Unfortunately it was a
fair customer, not a lay figure, whom he had
treated so uncavalierly. " Excuse me, madam ;
I thought you were a dummy I" gasped the
luckless mortal, retreating breathlessly towards
his room, as the only practical refuge. Ima
gine his horror imagine the lady's trepida
tion imagine ths irrepressible giggling of the
feminine shoppers who had witnessed the whole
scene I Altogether, it was rather a disagreea
ble predicament for an old bachelor to get

DR. SCUENCK, the Lung Doctor. Tbe Pro
prietor of SCHENCK'S PULMONIC SY
RUP, the Inventor of SCHENCK'S RESPlROME
TER, the only Instrument that can to a certainty
detect the slightest murmur of the respiratory
This Is of great Importance to Dr. SCHENCK,
to know the exact condition of the lungs, whether
It Is Tuberculous, Pulmonary, Bronchial, Pleu
ritic, or Dyspeptic Consumption, and whether it
is both lungs or only one that are diseased.
It requires constant and long practice to be
come familiar with every sound or rattling of a
diseased bronchial tube. Patients come to Dr.
SCHENCK to get examined that have been ex
amined by thtir family physician, who told them
that their lungs were almost gone; when, by a
close examination with the Respirometer, It Is
often found that It is an affection of the bron
chial tube, and, by getting a healthy action of
tne liver ana tone to tne stomacn, tne sufferer Is
soon restored to health. Sometimes medicine
that will stop a cough is certain death to tbe pa
tient. It locks up trie liver, stops tbe lrculation
of the blood; hemorrhage follows, and, In fact,
stopping the action of the very organs that
caused tne cougn.
Liver complaints and Dyspnsia are the causes
of two-thirds of tbe cases ot Consuuip'ion. Per.
sons are at this time complaining with dull pain
in the side, bowels sometimes costive and some
times too loose, tongue coated, pain in tbe shoul
der blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at
outer times drowsy; everything tnat Is eaten Ilea
heavy on the stomach ; aciaity, belching up
wind. Hundreds are complaining at this time
In this way. Let them take a heavy cold, and,
before they get rid of It, then another, then Is
the time to know what to do, then Is the time to
go to Dr. SCHENCK and get your lungs exam
ined, then Is the tlmo to know what cough med
icine to take. Stop that cough sudden, and then
the lungs, liver, aud stomach, are all put into an
Inactive state, and, before the patient is aware
of his situation, the lungs are a mass of sores,
and death must soon follow.
SCHENCK'S " PULMONIC SYRUP" is an ex
pectorant which does not contain any opium,
nor anything calculated to check a cough sud
denly, but, when assisted by tho SEAWEED
TONIO, to Improve tbe tone of the stomach, and
restore a healthy action ot tne digestive organs,
with tbe MANDRAKE PILLS, to bring about a
healthy action of the liver. When these are ta
ken together, or as Indicated, they are sure to
bring tne constitution tmcK to a bealtny state
wuen aneclea oy any ol tne anove diseases. Dr.
SCUENCK believes that too much cannot be said
In tavor of the curative powers of tbe MAN
DRAKE PILLS. Their action Is peculiar, but
certain, in all cases of torpid bowels or diseased
liver, which is too frequently the primary cause
of a broken-down condition of the whole system,
and otten passes under the name of CONSUMP
TION, when that disease does not exist at all, or
if it does, is readily curable by a proper atten
tion to restoring u healthy action or tbe stomach,
liver, and other functions, whose duty it is to
eliminate and carry otf the unhealthy deposits
which clog and render sluggish the wheels of the
Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup will prolong life
sometimes several months, by keeping tbe bron
chial tubes free from tbe putrid matter which
Impedes their functions, wben the lungs are too
far gone to cure There is no medicine that can
cure Consumption when both lungs are much
diseased, and Dr. Schenck would rather every
one would know their true condition before ta
king bis medicine.
lie treats no diseases but those of the Lungs,
Liver, and Stomach, and makes no charges lor
advice, or examining lungs In the ordinary way,
or as physicians generally do ; but for a thorough

Often, a tnenty-five cent box of SCHENCK'S
