Catholics In Germany.
To Oie E'lUor? of Oie Charleston Dally New?:
GiSTLisiiKN : Will yon allow me to irouble you
with what may perhaps not intercut you very
much. The subject of Germany, under one form
and another, occupies a groat deal of space just
now in all our newspapers. Yet it would seem
that but few who are net Germans, oven under
stand what is meant by the term Germany. I am
led to this reflection by reading a paragraph in
yeBterday'a Courier, under tho head of "War Cor
respondence, ?'otanley" writes from Hoidolherg:
"In Austria the German language is not entire
ly spoken, and this coupled with tue faut that the
Gormaua are of the Lutheran, and the Auatfiuus
of the Catholic porsuasion, would make annexation
to PrusBia, whore both language and religion
agree, to be much preferred."
No? I am free to confess that I do not exactly
understand this writer. What does he moan by
the German not being entirely spoken in Austria ?
If his intention is to say that only a part of the
poople under Austrian rule use tho Gorman lan
guage, he ?a correct in point of fact. But tho
same is the casein Prussia. The vernacular in
tho three northeast provinoea of Prussia,?which
wero her share of the spoil in the Partition ot Po
land,?is not German but Polish.
Again ho saya : "The Germana are of the Lu
theran and the Austrians of the Oatholi 0 poraua
eiun." The distinction here is wrong. Tho Aua
Iriiins are Gorman* just ao muoh as the Prnasians,
or Saxons, or Hcesiana; or, to be more explicit,
about thirteen or fourteen millions of the subject?
of Austria are Germane, and cannot bo properly
spoken of as Austrian?) in contradistinction to
And lastly, as regards the foregoing religious
eluasification, il is not true. There aro Lutheran*
iu tho Austrian dominions, and tuero are many
Catholics io the remainder of Germany. Accord
ing to the N'-.tion.-l Almanac for 18G4, tht Protos
tant population of Austria ia 3,182,610. Bavaria
which in tho ?.?.igest German power after Ati?trii
and Prussia, Una a large preponderance ot Cat he
lies, eo haa the Gr>.nd Duohy of Baden, Prussit
has 7,000,000 Catholics ; Wurtemberg haa one
ttiird Catholics, and so with tho other States.
I tliibk I have adduced sufficient proof to ehov
that "St.inlov" ia miaUkcn, and that tho dorm?n
aro not all Lutherans.

[FROM OOB own OORBEflFONDENT.]
New Yobk, August 7.?Tho cable excitement is
still tho oxcitomont of tbo day. Newspapi-rdom
is still divided on tbo vexed question aa to whether
or not tho affair will yet turn out to bo a humbug.
Tbo Herald ia on tho sido or tho cable booauso it
(tho Herald) could not elso brag of its having re
ceived the first important dispatch, and of its in
tention to do tho same in futuro; that is, to receive
all important telegrams beforo any of its cotein
porarios. Ever siuco tho receipt of aaid dispatch,
tbo Herald has beon bragging little by littlo in
oach isBiip, and to-day it conies out with a whole
column in tho samo style.
All of the other papera are jealous of tho Herald,
and aro down on tho cable. Tho World contends
that it is a very alow coach, to aay tho luat-t, and
that ita news ia often anticipated by tbo regular
ocean eteainors, a,uu winds up by asking the per
tinent question?or what Mr. Cybcs Field would
call tho impertinent question?"Is the cabio a
Yet though tho World, and the world may bavo
an idea that tho cabio is a mammoth humbug,
both worlds are no doubt in error, and though
there aro nemo eccentricities about ita workings, or
rather about its not working enough, there ia
good reason to suppose that it will all come right
oro long, and really bo what wc have ao oft beon
told, that it ia iu beautiful working order. Tho
ncrald blamea the Asaooialcd Press for tho want
of proper cabio news, and coolly threatens to
smash up the wholo concern and get all the news
on its own aoconut.
8trikcs aro again tho order of tho day and
hour?I say of the hour, for it is in relation to
tho hour for "knockiug off work" on Saturday
afternoons that tho strike has beon agreed upon.
Tho Carpenters' and Joiners' Union, of Brooklyn,
after having given duo notice of their intention
to Btriko were they not allowed to "knock oil " at
four P. M. on Saturdays, have been true to their
word, aud struck iu a body a couple of dayB ago.
A majority of tho "bosses" liavo yielded to tho
striking nature of the argument, bnt somo still
"Tbo choierais on the dcoroaso. Tltcro woro but
nineteen cases reported yestorday, and only four
deaths. The, abatement in tho severity of the
diBtaso is attributed to tho vory agreoable ebango
in the weather, which is cool and delightful.
Two Italian gentlemen, taking exception at the
tenor of some articles that appeared in tbo Herald
reflecting injuriously (aa they conceived) on tboir
nativo land, called at the Herald offioo and de
manded that a retraotion should bo made, or that
tho junior editor should accept an invitation to
partako, with one or both of tVotu, of pistol? ?ml
coffee ihe editor replied that be bad no timo
nor inclination to shoot or be shot at by any gen
tloman who shonld find fault with an article pub
lished in his paper, and, thorefore, whilst he ro
fosed to comply with their domand, he chose also
to declino their vory polite invitation.
As tbo time draws near for tbo advont of tbo
groat Italian tragedienne, Adelaide Ristobi, the
lovers of the legitimate drama are growing more
and more anxious aud impatient. Although Ris
tobi is known to bo the greatest ictress living,
and to have oven disputed, if not shared, the
laureLs of tho great Rachel, as sho has never bo
foro visited America, none have ever had an
opportunity of seeing her except those who have
taken a voyage across the Atlantic. As your cor
respondent took that voyage ten years ago, and
saw Ristobi in Paris, in her groat impersonation
of " Medea," in 1856, he may be permitted to in
dulge in a few remarks on aaid performance,
Ristobi, though not a beautiful woman, is strik
ingly handaome. Her eyes, which are as dark as
night, yet flash with a brilliancy that startles and
charma tho beholder. 8ho is tho personification
of grace, and as to her reading, it is all that it
oan bo to be? perfection. To see her act once is
to remember it forever. On the morning follow
ing tbo night on which I saw hor in " Medea," I
sat at tho breakfast table of the Grand Hotel de
Louvre, next to Chablotte Cosuman, who, ro
i ferriog to the relative m?rita of Rachel and Ris
tobi, remarked that " Rachel waa a machino?
i ftisToni a woman." No criticism could bo jueter
or moro expressiv? than this, for each of tbom
i stands at the head of one of the two great schools
i of acting, the studied and artistic, and the impul
r give and < motional.
Tho weather has grown so pleasantly cool that
. the theatres aro drawing very well. The porform
, ancos will, however, continuo to bo commonplace
i till tho rogular fall and winter season begins.
. Many persous who bad betaken thomselvos to the
i various watering placea and resorts of fashion are
. making a homeward move, and all indulge con
fident expectations of a gay timo coming.

His Exctllfi.cy Frexideid Andrew Joknton:
b'm?Yt-ur Excellency iaalie dy iu possession
of tho main fscfa in regard to the conspiracy
which, by reviving the Convention of 1804, pur
posed to subvert the civil govern meut of Louis
iana. An Informal mefrtiaj. of 2r? members, 150
being tho whole number, und 70 a quorum, pro
ceeded to depose the President or the Convention,
who considered the Convention itself oxtinct, and
himself without futic ions of ollice, and to elect
B. Ka Hitwoll aa President pro tern. Thoy adjourn
ed to meet again, sud a proclamation was issued
by the Preeidout pro Inn., comoning tho Conven
tion to meet on the 30th of July l?at, and direct
ing his Excolloncy tht. Governor <if tho Stato to
iaeuo writ? or oleotioH to fill vacanoiea. So far
the wholo matter w.a looked up ?it as a harmless
experiment, though mischief ?vas intended, the
people being c< i.fMcni, that the Governor would
uot condi acend to imtico thia proclamation, aud
that iu Cito tho Convention should commit any
. act of inl?rrercuct?, ho would at onco have it dis
persed. Unfortunately, however, after a lapse of
nearly a month, tho Governor iasuod write of elec
tion to fill up 61 vacancies iu that body.
This document, to which tho Secretary of State
refuaod to give his attestation uuder the seal of
8tato, was ieaued under tho attestation of tho pri
vate aeorotary of tho Governor. The people ol
tho State, became alarmed whou no donbt could bo
entertained as to the fr.ct that their Chief Magis
trate had given willing aid and assistance to aub
vort tho Government, tho preservation of which
was especially intrusted to hia keoping.
Oai Friday, the 27tli nf July, a large mooting waa
held in tho hall of tho Hom-c of Representatives,
professedly for the advocacy of universal au?rngo,
butin reality to reorganize for tho mooting of tbo
Courontion ou tho Monday following. Tho object
of tho meeting was to excito tho passions and
pr?judices of the colored population, so as to
mako them the victima of a riot, by urging thorn
headlong into a conflict with the State and munici
On tho other hand, wo wore determined to pre
vent riot i-nd bloodshed, by pursuing suen a
course as would bull?s the nefarious calculations
of tho-*o agitators.
Our remedy, and tho only remedy, must bo by
recourse to the usual process of law, and even
then to proceed in such Manlier aa to Insten upon
them tho rttpmteibiliiiea of all collision whatever.
Tho case was submitted to tho Grand Jury by tho
Attoruey-ii'eneral, and in the meantime tho JLk-u
lenaot-Govern?r and the Mayor called upon Gen.
Daird to ascertain whether, if a warrant issued
upon a regular indictment w. re placed in the
hunda of the sboriff for tho arrest of th? members
of the Conven.ion, the military would interfere.
The answer was that the sheriff himself would he
arrested, and that the Convention, meeting peace
ably, could not be interfered with by the officers
of the law.
It ia propor here toalato that the Mayor had
previoualy addrosaed a note to Gen. Baird, in
quiring whether he would be interfered with by
tue military in case ho would proceed to disperse
the Convention aa an unlawful aesemblage.
The answer to th? communication was that tho
meeting of the Convention being poaccuble, could
not be suppressed by the Mayor, and that tho
military authorities would prevent tho intorferen en
i of the oivil authorities. It wbb onngouioa toy tt?
Lioutenant-Governor that the city authoriti? s,
I under those oircumstanoea, did not intend to iu
l terfcro to prevent the meeting of tho Convention.
But ho proposed that in case a warrant of arrest
were placed in the hands of tho sheriff, tho latter,
before attempting to execute it, would call on the
General, who thereupon would ondorao hia objec
tions, and the mattor would at onco bo submitted i
to the President. Thia arrangement was satiafac- '
tory to both parties. Ou tue same day the At
torney-General and tho Lieutenant-Govcrnor tele
graphed to tho Prosident to aaoertaiu whether
the process of the court to arrest tho membt-rs of
the Convention could be thwarted by the military.
The answer waa expected to sustain tbe court.
On Saturday, the 20th, the State and municipal
authorities called upon tho President to advi o
the people aa to tho proper conduct to ba hold tho
next day, so aa to avoid all collision aud riot, and
tbe Mayor issued hie proclamation to the same
effect. The prosa of the city, with the exception
of the Radical organ, gave wise and salutary
oounsola to tho people, inviting all good citizens
I to avoid congregating about the Capitol, aud to
domean themselves with prudenoe and diaoretion.
On the morniug of the 30th the Lieutenant
Governor callod upon Gen. Baird to comuiuuicato
to him tbe President's dispatch, and also inquired
from the General if lie would not havosorao troops
in tbe vicinity of the hall to preserve penco and
good ordor. Gen. Baird sosworcd that applica
tion had been m * do by members of the Conven
tion. Tho suggestion was then made, that to
have too large a police force on the spot might be
construed 'as meant to ovorawo tho members, and
inasmuch as tbe oivil authorities did not intend
interfering with tho Convention until instructions
were received from tho President, aa above agreed
upon, it was proper to have troops to co-operate
with a small police forco to proaerve poace, and
firovont all posaihlo attempt to bring about a ?el
ision. This su gestion met the approval of tho
gouoral, who t hon stated that ho would immedi
ately give orders to have the tr<?opa in readiness
Buf?ro the end ot this interview it waa Lg.vin
agreed upon betwoon Gen. B tird and tho Lieut.
Governor, that whatever warrant of arrest might
be placed in the hands of the sheriff would be
submitted to him before any attempt to have it
1 oxoeutt d slm'ild be made, aud that upon tho in
dorsement of tho generar* objection?, tho matter
! would ho icf<-rred to tho Presidont. The Mayor,
beiug inform, d of thia arrangement, sont but a
small polio? tjreo to tho vioimty of the hall, and
i tho troop? that maro to act io conjunction with
tho police wore osgerly expected.
At noon information having readied tho Lieu?
' tenant-Governor that in tue Third District there
was a commencement of t-ffervescence, and that
i a large number of nogrooa woro coming towurda
Canal street from above and bolow. Ha imme
' diate.y sent a dispatch to tho general conveyh?g
thia intelligence and urging that the troops bo
8cuit without delay. About, oue hour afterwards
the riot broke out, ending in thu di.? pera ion of the
Convention and the capture of the rioters, luclud
1 ing stvoral members of this body.
? It is not our purpose to argue tho quostion ol
i the facts as to the actual commencement of the
collision, and fix preciaoly tho mode and mannet
and whore it started. Wo will, however, remark
> that tho collision was brought about by tho armed
? mob suatainiug the Convention. Suffice it to aay,
that tho civil authorities took all tho precaution?
' possible to prevent the outbreak; that they an
> plied during three- days previous to havo the mili
tai y to preserve ortLr at the place whero the
Convention was to meet; that the authorities,
State and municipal, corne to an understanding tc
set in concert with the military for that purpose:
that the citizens no more tuau the police contem
plated prov?inting the Convention from holding
their meeting in peace and adjourning and diapera
9 ing unmolested; and th ?t (he warrant for their ar
i rest would have beon submitted to the military at
> agreed upon, although the President's dispatch tc
tho Liouteuant-Governor, aud tho subs?quent one
to tbo Attorney-General was imperative that tht
military must not thwart the Convention. The
i military authorities had been fur thrao days pro
t vl us to tbo riot iu const mt communication witt
the Attorney?General and tbo Lieutenant-Govern
- or, with a view to prevent the impending riot.
- Tho efforts were u..eueo. aaful and could not coun
t teraot the incendiary counsels and appeals o

That the civil authorities havo dono their doty u
i this respeot ia patent. That more could bavi
been doue by them waa impossible, aa thoy wen
not allowed to removo tho cause of tho riot by
takitiR proper moin* to provont the meeting of
tho Convention, ?nd wo donbt not tor a moment
that tho military commander bim? If will be tho
first to corn.borato the so fact? and to arrest all
calumnious imputation nKtiinrt iho conduct of our

As regards tbo nrocUmation ot martial law, tho
least that can bo said w, that it was inopportune
if the rioting had ceased complutulv, tho polico
being m.o-ters ol tin sitoatlun.
Tbo colored population as a body did not par
ticipate in Ih ce disgraceful sccuoh, and the freed
men iti the vicinity of tho riot w<-ro ?-lauding a?
lo?iktrs-on will.out bcinp; molest? d. The colored
mob, in union with a few wi.ilo rioters who woro
loading them,wo*e no doubt ?o I organized. That,
they ?ero ??-Il armed is undoubted, an forty-two
policemen and several citizens were either Killed
or wounded by them, all hough tho conflict waa
ovor in Ichh than two hours
T ? enty-bcvon rioters w?vro killed, and a con
siderable manner wounded.
At dark when all was ovor, when thoso of the
mob were either dispersed or iu prison, when
traiiquility autl order ?an r? stoied, martial law was
proclaimed and tbo prisons where the rioters
were confined emptied by orders from boadqnar
ton?. These measures undoubtedly woro not in
toiidcd to revivo tbo hopo* of the outlaws; but,
wero they not calculated to inspire them with falso
hopes? Tho very uoxt morning tho organ of tho
agitatora was issued, containing, as usual, tho
moat inflammatory articles, and bo tho succeed
ing ??sues. Had tho military, on Momlay after
noon, taken u stand to co-operato with the oivU
authorities instead of proclaiming martial law the
mn-t beneficial ?fleets would bavo beo.1 tho roeult.
