NOTES OF THE WEEK.
I. O. O. F. There will be a special meeting of
Excelsior Lodge this evening. ISee advertisement.
Cattlb Saxb. Bartow offers a large lot of beef
cattle and milch cows, to-day at his auction rooms.
The Trip to KAUAi.-The EUauea on Thursday,
took ten cabin passengers, and about thirty on deck.
She is due this morning.
The Babk Queeh Emma will sail for San Fran
cisco either to-day or on Monday, dependant pon
the arrival of freight from Hawaii.
The steamship Albion of Hall's line, will be due
on Friday, and will sail for San Francisco on Satur
day evening, taking our Eastern bound mail.
Thanks. Ours are due to Mr. J. O. Carter, of
Whitney's news establishment, and Mr. T. G. Thrum,
for files of late papers.
Steamer Time. Capt. Shepherd, of the D. C.
Murray, arrived on Thursday morning last, after
the very short passage of twelve days from San
Francisco. Capt S. reports having made 270 miles
the last day.
The Minstrels. We hear that Frank Jones and
Johnny Tours, with their troupe of minstrels, will
arrive by the City of Adelaide, due from San Fran
cisco next Thursday. Look out for fun at the Ha
Discouraged. Our man Quirk says he is not go
ing to do any more conundrums. He recently asked
his wife what was the difference between his head
and a hogshead, and she said there was none. He
said that was not the right answer, and went off
on his ear."
Target ritACTiCE. Yesterday the crew of the
TJ. S. S. Jamestown were practiced at target firing
with shot and shell, and some remarkable good
shooting was done. The target was put up cn tbe
reef some three-quarters of a mile from the ship,
and was handsomely riddled.
The Next Steamer. The City of Adelaide, of
Hall's line, was to leave San Francisco August 8th,
and will be due here next Thursday, the 17th. The
opera troupe of Madam States may possibly have
concluded their engagement and taken 'passage by
her, and if so we can anticipate two nights' enter
tainment next week from these great artistes.
Adrift. Daring a squall on Wednesday, a canoe
and a whale-boat were discovered drifting out of the
harbor. It was thought at first that some children i
were in them, and some considerable excitement was
created. They were however empty, and were re
covered and towed to shore by a boat from the U. S. S.
Brisk Times. As an indication of the sort of
times upon which we have fallen, it may be men
tioned that one day this week, ia business hours and
at a business place, we counted no less than twelve
business men congregated together, and apparently
deeply interested in a game of " garrison," which
two of their number were playing.
The New Comic Paper. We have received ha !
ha ! ba ! a copy of ha ! ha ! ! "Rennet's O ho
ho own " for Au haw haw ! gust. ' We think
he he he he ! has shown much perseverance in
getting ou ow ow ! out this sheet, and wish him
ha ! ha ! ha ! ! every ho ! ho ! ho ! ! success.
Long may he flourish, " pugnU et calcibus ' '
Hawaiian Apples. We recently saw two very
fine looking apples not oAta grown at Ewa on
this island. The tree from which they were plucked
grows in a garden owned by a French resident, near
the mouth of the river, apd not on the elevated land
of the mountain, as one might suppose. It is heavy
with the fruit, and shows what may be accomplished
in growing exotic fruits, with proper care and labor.
A Monster Ego. Mr. D. K. Fyfe has laid on our
table we mean he placed there an egg laid by one
of his Aylsbury ducks, that is certainly a curiosity
in the way of size. It measures S inches in length,
2J inches in diameter, 7 inches in circumference,
and weighs five ounces. The duck is only seven or
eight months old what may she not accomplish
when she arrives at mature years 7 This is one of
the descendants of a few pairs that were received
here some time since from Australia, and are of the
genuine Aylsbury breed."
Good Templars. At a regular meeting of Queen
Emma Lodge, No. 2, I. O. G. T., of this city, held
at their rooms on Monday evening last, the following
officers were installed for the ensuing term, by Win.
B. Wright, Grand Lodge Deputy : F. B. Swain, W.
C. T. ; Miss Haleakala Napela, W. R, H. S. ; Mrs.
Mary Norton, W. L. H. 8. ; Mrs. H. B. Townsend,
W. V. T. ; Henry Smith, Jr., W. S. ; Chas. K. Ellis
W. A. S. ; Chas. Blackburn, W. F. S. ; James W.
McGuire, W. T. ; Wm. B. Mason, W. M. ; Miss
Sophia L. Sheldon, W. D. M. ; Mrs. H. L. Sheldon,
W. I. G. ; George McKinney, W. O. G. ; John
Sweetman, P. W. C. T.
Police Court. On Monday, James Fitzgerald, a !
son of the Emerald Isle, who has the reputation or
being a quiet enough industrious mechanic when not
under the influence of drink, but a very troublesome
fellow when in his cups, was brought up on a
charge of having been drunk and noisy in the street
late on Saturday night. The charge was very
clearly proven, and tbe Magistrate was about to
pass sentence, when James begged very hard to be
let off this time ; he would never be guilty again ;
in fact, he would promise to leave the country if let
go clear this time. But the Judge told him that he
had been up once too often on this charge ; and be
sides, his Honor on the last occasion had promised1
that the next time he would be ." sent over," and
the Court could not go back on its word. So he was
sentenced to one month's imprisonment at hard
labor, from which he noted an appeal to Judge Ka
makaa. Two young girls a native and a half-caste
were fined So each, for disturbing worship in
Kaumakapili Church Sunday evening, and warned
against a repetition of the offense. On Tuesday, a
native named Stephen Eaaua was brought up on a
charge of malicious mischief, in having " busted "
a seraphina in the little church at Kalihi. It ap
peared that Stephen, who is a musical genius, had
been employed to teach the choir and play on the
seraphina at the church, but getting into disfavor,
he had been discharged He however retained a key
of the instrument, and had such a passion for art
that he used to break into the church and play by
himself after he had been forbidden to do so. At
last an old deacon and a number of the elders ex
pelled him forcibly from the premises one day. But
that was not tbe end of the quarrel, though it waa
of the music, for a day or two after, the choir going
in to practice, found that the instrument waa sick
as one witness said. " it had the asthma and had
lost its voice." In short, the bellows was " busted," J
and would hold no wind. Circumstances pointed
plainly to Stephen as the " buster," and so he was
arrested on the charge of malicious mischief. Un
fortunately, there was no proof that it waa he who
did tbe mischief, tnoug everybody feels morally cer
tain of the fact, and so he was discharged. The
seraphina was a new one, rvently imported at, a
cost of 9200, and it will cost $39 to repair it.
E2F" We are requested to atate that the regular
morniDg serrice at the Fort street Church to-morjpjr'
will be omitted. The Bey. Mr. Damon wjJJflathe
pulpit in the evening. L
The Bard Master. We are sorry to hear that Mr.
Northcott, the accomplished musician, who has with
surprising toil and success brought the King's
Band to its present state of efficiency, is soon to
! leave, as a liTinir salary cannot be paid him. The
rare opportunities that have been afforded by those
controlling the movements of the band for the pub-
i lie to hear it, have proved that it was a desirable
limitation, but deprived of its master, we predict
! for it an abbreviated existence.
A Rooster with a Rat's Taii This species of
! unnatural selection, as Darwin would call it, is to be
; seen in Honolulu. A fowl-fancier, on cuttine the
t 7Z' V v T5
; lntntj , ,. ,

bandaged, it has grown to be a permanent and orna-
mental appendage to chanticleer's head. He is proud
too of its natty curl, and his companions naturally
enough are disposed now and then to give it an en
vious peck. "Who knows but this may be the founder
of a new breed of fowls, that will develope an incli
nation for gnawing cheese and frequenting holes ?
Madam States. We clip the following from the
Sacramento Union of July 29th: '-Madam Agatha
States received a perfect ovation this evening July
24tb, on her first appearance in opera in San Fran
cisco since her departure for Europe six years
since. The stage was fairly covered with bouquets,
and the applause long and enthusiastic. The
Metropolitan was packed at least 200 ladies
finding seats in the parquette. She has changed
very much in personal appearance since her de
parture, and her voice is mellower, clearer, more
delicate and sympathetic."
Rescue prom Drowning. Last Thursday a lot of
native boys, their ages varying from five to eight or
ten years, were amusing themselves in the dock near
the fishmarket, in paddling about in a loose boat,
when one little fellow accidently fell overboard. It
may not be generally known, but it is nevertheless a
fact that many native children are growing up in
this city who have not learned to swim. This iittlo
fellow was one of that sort, and after sputtering and
struggling for a little, he choked with the salt water
and sunk. His playmates looked on laughing, un
conscious of his danger, while grown up men stand
ig with native apathy made no effort to save
him. Another boy, about twelve years old, who saw.
the accident, looking over the side of the wharf
perceived the drowning boy on the bottom, clawing
at the mud, and immediately dove down, and with
no little difficulty brought him on shore. The name

Naval. The U. S. S. Jamestown, 16 guns, of
whose departure from Valparaiso on her way to this
port we were advised by a letter from Chile, in our
last, arrived on Stfturday afternoon, having been
sixty-three days at sea, during a part of which time
she has been cruising in search of some reported
" Islands" and "Dangers" in the North Pacific,
east of long, 131 W., and as far as lat 24 33'

warded to the Department at Washington for publi
cation. Among the officers of the ship, our residents
will recognize and welcome many familiar faces, as it
is only a year since the Jamestown last visited our
waters. The following is a list of officers :

' Captain' CtmrkVf. A. Hinds
Paymaster Clerk C. W. Sinclair.
The following is a sketch of the cruise, obligingly
furnished by 'an officer: "She Bailed on the 3d of
June, and experienced fine pleasant weather almost
tbe entire passage. After getting to the westward a
short distance, took the southeast trade, and carried
it to 10 north, crossing the equator in longitude
103, after which the winds were variable, from
southeast to southwest, occasionally hauling to the
northward and west. When in latitude 21 north
struck the northeast trade, and held it into port.
The trades have been quite moderate, with very
smooth seas. The only interruption to this very fine
weather was a moderate gale on the 10th of J uly,
which came on during the morning with heavy rain
squalls and falling barometer with a moderate, bro
ken sea. During the day, the wind backed from N.
W. around "by W. and S. to S. E. and S. in the eve
ning, when it moderated and cleared up, tbe ship
being enabled to steer ber course to N. W., and make
sail. At sunset the storm-cloud was plainly visible
to West, aud moving away with its accompanying
lightning and rain. A cyclone was plotted, moving
W. by N. at a rate of 15 miles per hour, its centre
probably passing within 200 miles of the ship." We
understand that the Jamestown, after a stay of sev
eral weeks in this port, will proceed to San Francisco.
Tlie New Hlave Trade.
The attention of the leading journals of the
United States and Europe has been drawn to the at
rocities committed by the coolie traders of Macao.
Our position in this ocean gave us the opportunity
for gathering the earliest information touching this
traffic, and the arrival at this port of several vessels
concerned in tbe trade with the coast of South
America, permits us to speak as eye-witnesses, and
to corroborate much that has been said in other
A case has been tried in Hongkong, and the evi
dence elicited has developed a story that puts to tbe
blush the horrors of the African slave coast The
correspondent of a leading New York paper under
date of May 12th, 1871, says :
On the 30th of September last there sailed Irom Macao a
French ahip called the Houvellt Penelope, bound for Callao,
in Pern ; she had no cargo on board, but carried 310 Chinese,
denominated emigrants, who were nominally undergoing en
gagements for a term of years to work in Peru. These emi
grants bad been ibr some time taken care of in the barracooos
of Macao, from which they were transported to the shore under
military government ; then shipped off in boats, each one of
which had Portuguese soldiers on board, armed with muskets
and fixed bayonets, and finally placed on board tbe Kouvele
Penelope. Tbe arrangements of this ship were in curious
coincidence with the first part of the tale. There was a bar
rier across the deck, abaft the mainmast, constructed of strong
wood four inches square and seven or eight feet high. There
were two open barred doors opening aft in tbe barrier, and
there waa a cannon at each door, with the muzzle pointed for
ward." The coolies were not allowed to pass sit the barrier,
where during the day a sentry stood on duty. At night they
were confined to the hold of the ahip, ooe of the crew keeping
watch at the hatchway. Aft of the barrier alept tbe captain
and crew, who, in addition to the two camion mentioned above
had twelve muskets aod bayonets, some swords and revolvers.
Tbe ship, moreover, carried a quantity ol gunpowder and
grapeshot. Before leaving the harbor one of the emigrants
jumped overboard and tried to swim to shore. He was captured
and brought back to tbe ahip. Three days afterwards, out at
sea, another jumped overboard and was drowned. At tbe
same time some twenty or thirty of the emigrant on board
were crying. Xhey said they had been kidnapped, and a man
named Kao-kung-maa was seeking to comfort them. " Do
not cry, my brothers in two days more we shall go back to
China." The 310 emigrants on board Uie Mouvelle Penelope,
not apparently so eager to proceed to Peru aa was the master
of that craft to convey them thither, seem, to have listened to
the suggestion of tbe man Kao-kucg-mao. In any case, tbey
rose, killed the captain and several ol tbe crew, and turned the
ship back to China, where some of them succeeded in escap
ing. The tragedy was not. however, at an end. The Houvellt
Penelope was a French ship ; tbe French Consul at Canton
asked for and obtained the execution of sixteen of the coolies
who bad escaped to land. A Chinese gunboat broucbt tbem
down from Canton, and rending them on a Chinese island
within sight of tbe windows of house in Macao, there these
sixteen men were, on tbe 7th of February last, with the pomp
and circumstances of a grand ceremony, as on a gala day, in
the presence of hundreds of spectators, beheaded by Chinese

fortunate than the others, escaped to Hongkong. The pressor
brought to bear on the Viceroy at Canton led him to make an
informal demand for the rendition of the man. This demand
was forwarded to Hongkong through the British Consul and

the judgment in which has just been delivered by tbe Chief

man. In peaking from the bench the Judge remarked that
it is notorious that the cost of the salable article man," laid
down in Macao, is about sixty dollars and under eighty dollars

The fitting up of the vessel named above, is in keep

the voyage to which the resident of China ia a

of from forty to sixty days, thin and emaciated,'
with leaden hue and eruptive diseases upon his skin,
indicative of a want of pure air, cleanliness and
nourishing food, and with a mien that tells that de
spair reigns uppermost in his mind. It is well for
the friends of humanity, and for the Chinese particu
larly, that the Chief Judge of the Supreme Court of
Hongkong is a man that knows his duty, and dares
perform it. The correspondent says :
The judge animadverted In very severe terms on this truffle.
and said that the time bad come for a stop to be put to a trade
which the experience of the last three years especially lias
shown cannot be carried on without barbarities which the
mind shudders to think of. We at least cannot be indifferent
to what has become a blot on our common humanity. Fur this
case of the tiouvtlle Ptnelopt is not the only one. V all
remember tbe case of tbe ill-fated ship navigated from the coast
of Pern to Japan, the fate of whose crew is si ill a mystery.
We are asaured that within a short period some six or seven
ships, carrying some 3,000 coolies, bave been burned or other

Brave words and timely spoken. While upon this
subject let us clip the following touching the ship
Dolores Ugarte, of infamous memory :
From the China Mail (Extra) May 5 J
On Thursday last the Doore Ugarte was towed out of
Macao harbor, having 650 passengers on board, bound for Peru.
On Sunday the Captain and crew (less oue) returned to
Macao In the ship's boats and reported
. 1. That on Saturday a fire was discovered in the hold.
2. That one of the crew was sent down with a water bose to
put the nre out.
a. mat this man was set upon ana murdered oy me pas
4. That the Captain, wi:h a view to tbe preservation of his
own and his crew's lives, battened down the hatches on the
passengers " in the hold, and took to the boats, in which, aa
baa been elated, they reached Macao yesterday.
6. That the Captain knows nothing whatever of what has
become of the ship-aod w passengers," but believes that both
have been burned together, inasmuch as the " passengers,"
being battened down, had no chance of escape.
These are the categorical statements to us, and they are In
general circulation. Are they true f
Toe ship was consigned in Hongkong to one Aurellano Alarm.
The Captain's name is Garay. Both may become celebrated-
The question will probably arise in this latitude
why should the consignee in Hongkong become
"celebrated?" We are informed that the agent in
Hongkong simply fits the ship with provisions, a
crew and the necessary equipment of other material
for tbe voyage, ne is an accessory before the fact
of kidnapping and forcible detention, while the party
who aids in carrying out the voyage after the crim
inal act unless he can prove ignorance is an acces
sory after tbe fact. Which is the most culpable ?
Now that the facts connected with the traffic in
slaves, yjng tmrayM-rf n Macao and South
AmfiwCtTLave become a matter of notoriety, we trust
His Majesty's Government will use every en
deavor to prevent the dealers in the article man "
from making the ports of this Kingdom an asylum.
Tlie Wonga AVonita ' Dr.
liu.ni. a Hotter.
In answer to Dr. T. Graham's letter published in
Sunday's Alt a, bearing reference to the accommoda
tions, etc., of the Australian steamship IVonga
Wonga, we have received four communications,
which are too lengthy to publish, but two of which
from passengers, refute that gentleman's statements
completely, and speak in most complimentary terms
ot the vessel, ner omcers and general arrangements.
The vessel encountered head winds on a large part of
her voyage, and heavy seas, yet ber decks were
always dry. Ihe burgeon of the vessel comes out in
still stronger style, and denies that tbe name of Dr.
T. Graham appears in the official list of legally
qualified medical practitioners in New South Wales,
Victoria, Queensland or Tasmania ; that he does not
(although posted on Colonial matters) believe he ever
was an " Honorable " in any of tbe Australian i'ar-
liaments ; that he came oft at Sydney Heads in a
tug-boat ; that on the previous steamer leaving Syd
ney tbe City of Melbourne the honorable doctor
bad been taken off by the strong arm of justice, bis
wife and family proceeding without him ; and that
his duty, as medical officer of the ship, compels him
to deny, in to to, the statements of Dr. T. Graham in
regard to the accommodations, etc We must decline
to continue the discussion, but think it is only due
to the owners and agents of the line to publish the
facts as given above. Alta California.
TVino Days Later.
Arrival of the "Lizzie Boss," "D. 0,
Murray" and M. E. Packer."
By tbe arrival on Wendnesday last of the British
bark Lizzie Boss, 17 days from San Francisco, we
have two days later papers than by the arriyal of
the Ajax. Tbe news is meagre and unimportant.
The German troops were making preparations
to finally evacuate France, some bodies of troops
being already on tbe march.
President Thiers' protective policy was much

Several newspapers in Paris were to be pro
ceeded against, criminally, for expressions hostile
to the government.
In England, tbe abolition of tbe army purchase
system was being extensively discusaed, and Glad
stone was represented as having gained immensely
in popularity by that measure.
George Francis Train was amusing tbe London

In Spain, a new ministry had. been formed, but
the Cortes were tumultuous and radical.
Cholera was raging in. Persia.
The yellow fever had entirely disappeared in
Tbe bark D. C. Hurray, Capt P. P. Shepherd, of
the Hawaiian Packet Line, arrived from San Fran
cisco on Thursday morning, twelve days passage.
By this arrival we have dales to July 28, from
which we compile a summary.
Versailles. July 20. In the Assembly to-day
Brunet moved a resolution that tbe Deputies who
do not take their seats within a specified time be
considered to bave resigned. This in aimed at tbe
Orleanist Princes. Monarchical demonstrations in
the provinces are expected during tbe recess of the
Paris. July 23. In the course of an address
by Thiers before tbe National Assembly at Ver-.
sailles yesterday, speaking ot Italy 'he said, it was
impossible to adopt a course wnicu would lead to
war. The true policy of France was peace and
reorganization. No steps must or should be taken
which will even Aend to alienate Italy.
The Monde to-day proposes that tbe island of
Corsica be tendered the Pope as an inviolable resi
dence, by which means it claims that the suprema
cy or f ranee, as tne delenuer or toe Catholic faith,
will be maintained.
Versailles, July 22. In the Assembly, to-day.
there was a very spirited debate upon the subject
of the petition of the Bishops with reference to tbe
temporal powers of the Pope. Thiers, who waa
the chief speaker, declared unequivocally that
while be would not in any way compromise tbe
policy of the country, he would do his best to se
cure the Pope's independence. Gambelta followed
in a speech approving tbe sentiments of Thiers.
and supported the matter for the order of tbe day.
which was then referred to the Minister of Foreign
New York, July 25. A special dispatch from
London, July 24th, says the Popo may leave Rome)
any day. Preparations are making lor bis recep
tion at Chateau Corte, Corsica. Mr. Vallery. own
er of tbe Chateau, bas bad an nnderstanding with
Antonelli, and is to place it at tbe disposal of tbe
Pope. There is a movement going on in France to
guarantee to the Pope temporal sovereignity over
Corsica. The Pope wishes to publish a syllabus in
regard to the occupation of Rome by the Italian
Uovernment and declaring that toe measures wun
holding from him all temporal powers are void.
Measures have been taken already in Rome to pre
pare for the choice of the next Pope. It is pro
posed to choose one who may be moderate in bis
ideas and not unfriendly to Italy, and by tbis means
effect a compromise with tbe Italian Government.
The disposition made by tbe French Chamber of
tbe petitions in regard to the temporal power of the
Pope, is equivalent to laying tbem on the table.
Loxdov. July 20. In tbe HouBe of Commons
tbis evening, Gladstone announced tbe solution of
tbe purchase problem, by advising tbe cancelling
of the Royal warrant, legalizing tbe purchase of
commissions in tbe Army. He declared that tbe
! House of Lords, though impugning the Govern
ment plan for its abolition, bad failed to miMalu
the purchase system, hence the Miniater Lad
advised Her Majesty to take action, which i flectti
ally dwpofed ot the question in acou'danea with
the roahirest will of tbe country. Tins d. claialioii
was received with vehement chfring in lL Ilone,
but Disraeli aird tb Tory ineuAuti funeral ly,
were unable to dissemble their otip-r. nd bitterly
denounced the arbitrary course ol the Govern ni'mt.
Gladstone was defiant and challenged tho opposi
tion U move a vote of want of confidence.
In the House of Lords, Earl Granville rr.se and
announced the determination of the lUniHtry, and
defended their policy.
It is impossible t describe the scene in cither
House on the announcement of th' fate of the
purchase system. The Lords were deeply moved,
but were reserved In tlie demonstrations. In the
Commons, their astonishment, anjrer and uncer
tainty were ill-concealed by the 'Tories. It con
founded all their leaders who were puzzled to
suprgest what action should be taken on an event
which tbey werr hardly prepared for. Notwith
standing the obscure loreshauowings in the Stanti
ard yesterday and to-day, the assertion of all the .
papers is bold and even desperate, and popular
feeling is led to anticipate, far reaching conse
quences in a democratic sense.
London'. July 21. In tbe House of Commons
this afternoon, Cardwell laid on the table the
Queeu 'a warrant abolishing the system of purchas
ing army commissions.
The times says the act of the Minister Is violent.
It regrets tbe great issue raised, but hopes the
Lords will think of the country before themselves.
The Keves approves tli conduct of tho Govern
ment in making themselves the exponent of tho
popular will, and recommends tbe Lords to pass
The Telegraph Is exultant. Gladstone is more
popular in vindicating tbe dignity ot the Commons
than in securing the harvest of a laborious session,
reorganizing the defenses or guarding tbo Interests
of the army.
The Post says the cotirnw of the Government Is
somewhat unconstitutional in bringing Parliament
The Standard says Gladstone grossly violated
bis privileges. Parliament is wasting its time in
precipitating a constitutional crisis.

New Yokk, July 27--A cable despatch slates
that tbe American Commission from the Evangeli
cal Alliance has had several Interviews wlthl'rincH
Gortschakolf. who has treated them with marked
courtesy and distinction. Although offered sump
tuous quarters at Peterboff, by the express com
mand of the Emperor, the members cf the delega

where they are constantly visited by distinguished
Greek and Protectant Christians. They speak very
encouragingly of tbe prospect for the ascompllnli

cordial reception as an onion of success. The mis
sion will be accorded an audience with his Imperiul
Majesty some day next week. The Lutheran mag
nates who are now in St. Petersburg place strong
hopes on the influence which tbe 'Commission will
be able to exert in behalf of their faith at the com
ing interview with the Emperor Alexander. On
tbe other hand, those intimate at court alarm that
the Evangelical Alliance will be told thattliu state
ments with regard to persecutions ot Lutherans In '
the Baltic Provinces are evidently grossly exagge
rated, but that the Imperial Government will order
a thorough investigation to be made in order to de
monstrate their assertions. The American gentle

Home, July 27 Tha Pope, In reply to an ad
dress of the ltoman Academy, remonstrating against
doctrines which are antagonistic to tbe spirit ol
modern times, disclaims any intention on the part
of the Papacy to lay claim to Inherent power to
dispossess sovereigns or to assume direction over
tbe worldly affairs of nations. In ancient times,
says bis Holiness, Christian nations revered the.
Pope as an arbitrator between sovereign and peo-
Cle in cases of disagreement, and great services
ave been rendered by the Papacy in preventing
wars and healing up divisions among tbe nations
of Ihe world.
