monument of Gen. Garibaldi on the Jnr.i
culani Hill, in the presence of King; Hum
bert and the rojal family, the ciiurt, min
isters and deputations of veterans wLo
served under Garibaldi.
The 50,000 people who witnessed the
ceremony displayed the utmost enthusiasm.
The decorations of public and private
buildings were of the must Imposing and
liberal character. Every mention of the
names of Garibaldi, Italy and King Hum
bert, was greeted wilh loud cheers.
The English and American embassies ho.d
their flags hoisted. The statue of Gari
baldl is by the sculptor Gallori. It is an
equestrian bronze, weighing fifteen tuns.
It has been erected In the grounds of the
Villa Corslni, upon an immense granite
bake, on the four sides of which are shown
four allcgoilcnl groups.
SYMBOLICAL OF 'AMERICA.
The side facing Rome represents the
defence of Rome against the French in
18-18. The opposite side shows the
GarlbJldlans taking Calati rinia. The
third and fourth Miles exhibit groups
sjmbolical of America and Europe.
Premier Crirpl delivered an oration in
which he eulogized Garibaldi without say
ing a word that might glo of fence to either
Franco or the Vatican.
Big nor Crispidllated upon the Inherent nn
tagonltm of statesmanship and religion,
arguing1 that those claiming the restoration
of the temporal power are actuated by far
more human motives than that of safe
guarding the prestige of the church.
The struggles incidental to political gov
ernment, he raid, would stifle all sentiment
of veneration for Christ's vicar. ItaJy has
given an example for other countries In re
nouncing ecclesiastical attributes and ac
cording the greatest respect to the liberty
of the church. In tbe guaranty of spiritual
autonomy, the Pope porsessed an unassaila
bio fortress which might vc ell be envied b
all the powers of the world," and even by
The Pope is now subject only to God. As
a temporal prince Tils authority would be
diminished, for tie would then only be the
equal of other prlnce6, who would league
tncmEelvcs against him.
NOT AGAINST THE POPE.
After 1670, Pope Pius IX, could contend
with Biemarck. Catholics preaching re
bellion should know that they are only as
sisting anarchists who deny both God and
tbe King. Blgnor Crltpi concluded by
-The fetes are not directed against the
Pojie. Do not let us mar the solemnity of
this ceremony. In which the -whole of Italy
is united, but remember that the jubilee re
minds us of our duty to defend a patriotic
inheritance won through long years of sacri
fice." Tne procession of Garibaldlnn veterans
to the Villa Corsini was a striking and im
pressive spectacle, with its bands of music
and its banner. The old soldiers in red
shirts were loadly cheered as they marched
through thostrctts. According tosomeesti
mates fully 100,000 people congregated
upon the Janlculum Hill.
OVATION TO THE KING.
The royal carriage mmed through the
crowd with the greatest difficulty, the
populate pressing about to seize the hands
of King Humbert and Queen Marguerite.
Tremendous shouts went up as the veil
was withdrawn from the statue. Gari

monument to deposit on it flags and crowns

Upon the schooner lielng turned over to

lector ordered Inspectors Audrews and
Roberts to give her a thorough overhaul

several barrels, boxes and sacks, all filled.
