A difficulty occurred at Kiota between the i

RITUALISM IN NEW TOI?K.
[From the Tribune of Saturday.]
The Ritualistic section of tho Episcopal
Church vies with the Roman communion in
its rigid observanco of tho solemnities of Good
Friday. The casual and uninitiated visitor to
St. Al ban's would sc neely havo recognized tho
interior ot that little church had he baan pre?
sent at tho services which were held in it yes?
terday. The genoral appearance of tho chan?
cel arid sanctuary was of that sombre charac?
ter befitting so solemn an occasion, and was
certainly creditable to the good taste of tboso
to wbom the arrangement was entrusted. Thu
entire reredos was coverod witb black drapery,
on the oantre of which a plain violet silk eros j
WHS worked with great effect. The he h ta of the
last window were clocked out and covered with
black a tuff, and this, shutting ont the light,
threw a suitable gloom over the sanctuary.
Long festoons of black drapery were also hung
from all the cross beams of tho chancel and
roof. The latter was vested in a plaiu black
frontal, the Dails and crown of thorns bciug
embroidered in white m the centre. The altar
:ross, tho altar hunts, flower vases, tapersticks
md branches wsrc all removed from the altar
? h elf. The entire pulpit, thc leotero, fald stool
md choir stalls were also appropriately draped
in black. The congregation beean to arrive
?arly, and by the hour of service the benches
in the body of tbe church were crowded with
worshippers, whose devotional demeanor was
most marked, and must havo been very gatiiy
ine to Fatber Morrill, the reotor, whose efforts,
in spite of adverse influences, to infuse
Catholicism in the Episcopal Church, have
boon unceasing, and would rather seem to
craiber atrengtu from ooposition. At 9 A. il
tho procession entered tbe church in a silence
which contrasted strangely with the joyous
hymus which thov generally siog as they slow?
ly wend their way to their ?oats in thc ohanoel
-Father Morrill wearing a magnificent black
robe, the cross on he back of which, the or

and the Litany. Father Mines reading the
lessons. Tbc service of the Reproaches was
then sun? by tho choir, the three priests and
the acolytes s rand i ncr before tho altar. Tho
Ddis-ia Sicct WHS read by Fatber Mon ill. after
which Father Noyes proceeded to tho pulpit
and delivered a very earnest, and eloquent ad?
ir?es on the '"Journey to Calvary." At halt
past 12 P. M., Fatber Morrill proceeded to tho
pulpit, and the service of the Three Hour's
Agony commenced. Taking the seven last
words uttered bv the Saviour on tbe cross
?paiately. he gave an address of about a quar?
ter of an hour on each of them. A prayer was
?.ben uffjred. followed for a time by private
meditation, amid thu most protound silence.
\ bymu wau sung between each address. This
service was of the most impressive character,
md was ?iost devoutly s jared in by the con?
gregation. Evensong was sung by Father
Stoves at 8 P. M., tho sermon being preached
jy Father Minos on the offering up of Isaac as
i type of the Saviour.

to the strong love of home that prevails at the
South, as forming the basis of much that ho
regards as admirable in the Southern charac?
ter. For this be was bitterly attacked by the
Cincinnati Gazette. From the spirited re?
joinder of Don Piatt we make s imo extracts :
THE TWO CIVILIZATIONS.
A kind friend sent me the compliment of a
column clipped from some issue of the Gazette,
in which the leading editor of that solemn old
organ takes to pieces a part of my Arlington
letter. I wish he had not done it. Like the
famous coon, I would have como down had he
given me a chance. I was ready to admit that
I was under "stress of composition," and gave
forth "tho troth of a dull imagination." alter
cudgeling "to bring forth a sentiment." Tbcic
is so much delicate poetic fancy in thc columns
of this venerable organ-there is such a quan?
tity of tender, touching sentiment io tbe soul
of this great financier, that I hasten to acknow?
ledge my master, and beg forgiveness for tbe
sin of ?t tempting sentiment on the heights of
Arlington. 1 say again, "An'I thought he had
beeu valiant, and so cunning in fence"-by
Jove, had ? known that he would even conde?
scend to read my poor stuff, I would havo cut
the s .nt.ment, and given him some solid fig?
ures, on which to feast bis statistical s ml.
Nav, I would have gone further, and confess?
ed that the Yankee love ot locality surpassed
in strong tb all other love known lo hum mi ty.
I would have coased to indulge in that impious
belief, once my favorite, that, had Adam and
Evo been Yankees, they would not have waited
for tbe Lord to expel them from the Garden of
Eden, but would have emigrated long before,
and gone to speculating in wild lands.
1 would have sworn that the love of home
was a great love in New England, and found
expression in the quiet repose of the house ?old,
that was without parillel in the annals of hu?
manity. I would have denied that it was com?
mon for children to quarrel over the support of
the aged parent, or that the aged parent ever
chai ged the dear children a weekly stipend for
board. I would have repudiated with indigna?
tion th? charge that the calendar of horrible
crimes instigated by a love ot money shown by
Kew England, is heavior than tbat of anv other
civilized people known to the world. I would
have shut my eyes to the matrimonial infideli?
ties and divorces, that make that Yankee com?
munity, called Chicago, bo famous. I would
have sworn that the love of the homestead ?vas
so intense, that it passed down from genera?
tion to generation of tender Yankees, who
would die in cold blood rather than part with a
foot of the loved locality, for a slight advance
I would havo sworn to this, and more, if I
could have thought ot it, rather than bo
stretched in torture along tbe leaded length of
a column in this ancient journal.
I could have admitted much if not all of
thiB, and yet maintained what 1 meant to as?
sort. I had no idea of running a comparison
between tbe moral condition of the North and
that of the South. A man may bo as pure
and upright as Ciarles humner, .ind yet have
no love of home or attachment for tho locality
home has made sacred, ide may be a wicked
man, and yet be attached to tho little sur
loundings made dear by toolings wo hold in
common with the bruto creation. Tho Arab
in his tent mav bs as good a creature, in a
moral point of view, as tho Swiss peasant HI
his -iottage. What I endeavored to say in my
letter was that tho love of homo existed at tho
South in a way unknown to New England. 1
never heard thin disputed before. And in this
love of borne I find t <c foundation for a batter
civilization than-one based ou force, pride or
property. The very illustrations ofl rod by tho

NEWS FROM WASHINGTON.
President Grant and tile Senate Amend?
ment to the Tenure-of-omee Law?
In regard to the President's opinion of the
Senate amendment to the lenure-of-office law,
lately rejected by the Bouse, the Washington
correspondent of tho New York Post says :.
Three days ago I telegraphed upon the au?
thority of a prominent senator, that the amend?
ment a? passed by the Senate was Ba.isfactory
to President Grane. Now 1 have reason to"
believe tnat the senator misapprehended
Grant's f-xact remarks. Tho amendment is
not satisfactory to General Grant, unless it is
found to be impossible to obtain a total repeal
of the bill. 1'resideut Grant does not consider
tbe amended bill as objectionable as the origi?
nal bill, as bas been said, but still there are
many features in it which he does not approve,
and which in his judgment ought not tobe
there. . Even should tbo House reconsider the
action of- friday, and acree to the Senate
amendment, it is in no wise certain that the
President, will then make snob wholesale remo?
vals as leading Bepnblicans desire. Your cor?
respondent f.els fully satisfied that the Senate
will not agree to any further concessions or
modifications of the bill, nor is there any dis?
position to yield the principle contained m it. .
? Government JJonuiIon fortt a e Educa?
tion of tit c Colored Kace of south Car?
A "VYasbiDgton telegram to the New York
Tho presiding officer of the Southern Asso?
ciation for tho education of the colored rase in
South Carolina a lew days ago wrote to tho
Secretary of the Treaau y requesting that the
balance of money due thc government for tho
purchase of the United States Marine Hospital
at Charleston, S. C., for an educational institu?
tion, bo remitted. About a year ago tho Trea?
sury Department agreed to sell tho Marine
Hospital for the purpose mentioned for $9000,
to be paid in instalments, and $1500 of the
money was paid over theo. Although tbe
time when the second instalment should
be paid bas been once or twice de?
ferred, not a cent has been paid since tbe
day the sale waa concluded. The Treas ut y
authorities replied to the Southern Associa?
tion that here was no power vested in the
Secretary of the Treasury to make donations
of the public property in bis charge; that the
proceeds of the sale of the Marine Hospital be?
longed to -tick seamen; that tho best ho could
do was to fix upon tho lit of June n .xe as the
day on which the balance of the purchase
money must be paid, or, failing in that, the
building must be surrendered lo the govern?
ment, in which case the $1500 already paid
would be retained as a reasonable rent for the
building from the date of its occupation.
1 he Case of Georgia.
It is said in Republican cueles that the Com?
mittee on Reconstruction, seven against five,
will this week report book the bill reassem?
bling the original Georgia Legislature, impos?
ta ; the test oath qualification, and declaring
the expulsion of the color jd members void.
Tbe Consolar Appointments.
It is not tho intention o' the Secretary of
State to tike up the consular appointments for
home days yet. President Grant desires to
dispose of the homo appomtmouts, which are
being strenuously prossed by senators and
members for their several distrots.
Adjournment of Co nure ss.

of both political parties, that an adjournmont

THE CUE AN QUESTION.
What a Prominent .Member of Congress
:?ays-Ibo Cuban Knvoys^it Work
Tne Senate llonbtfal on the Question
Men- of-War Sent to the West India
The Wanlnnatou correspondent of the Balti
? inrrrvr <^S^?XM??""wiitin uii\R>: uvtu ov L?v^fftir
Public opinion appiars to be rapidly gravi
tatiug lo ono o linton on the Cuban question.
It is o ,'idont that io the weak condition of
Spain and tho prosunt symptoms in Cuba,
some stronger nation will step in sooner IT
later and swallow up this valuable island. A
prominent New Eoglauder, a member of one of
tbo bouses of Congross and a great frioud of
President Graut, who WHS among the loudest in
his vituperation of England for its left-handed
aid to iho Southern Confederacy during the
war, was heard to deol&re himself in
favor of sending a large force to Cuba to aid
the insurrectionary party, provided they would
agroo to annexation to the United Se ttee on
tho withdrawal of the Spanish authorities,
which would surely follow. Who cares a fig
for Spain ? said he; .ve can afford to and will do
as we please on this continent. When wo ob?
tain Cuba and St.Domingo we will absorb tho
rest of the West lillies and make them a step?
ping stoue to tbe South American territory; at
any rate, all tho publio moo hero t.re coining
ai ouml to the opinion held by G-neral Graut
on the subject. Tbe Cuban envoys are at
work, and aro feeling tho official pulse with
great assiduity. They are all accomplished
ge J tlemon and wdl use every endeavor to suc?
ceed. Tbe House of Representatives is rife to
take any action which will be necessary in the
premises. Some doubt is expressed, however,
as to the course the Senate will pursue in their
aotion on General Banks' resolutions.
The Washington Chronicle, of Monday, says:
The State Department is in receipt of news
from our Consul-Goneral at* Havana, whioh
gives some authentic information regarding
the st a tu J of affairs in Cuba.
Ho states that tho prospects of tho insur?
gents are fully as ?rood as those of tho Span?
iards, and that both parties are constantly re?
ceiving reinforcements-the former from na?
tives and partios in tho Unitod States, ?tc,
and tho latter from Spain. Ho complains
that hts duties in protecting American citi?
zens against the tyraunioil exercise of
power by tho Spaniards are increasing,
and suggests that tho number of vessels in
our West India Squadron should be increased.
The war steamer Seminole, no v at Boston, tbe
Galena, now at Portland, and the Juuiuta, al
Philadelphia, have accordingly been ordered
to prepare themselves tor duty in that squad?
ron forthwith, lt was originally intended that
several iron clads should bo detailed for this
duty, but the above uamod vessels have beon
ordered, substituting them for economy's sake,
as the expenso of main tining iron-clads is
very heavy. Nevertheless the iron-clads will
be sent if noces tory.
Senor Morale Lenius, the envoy of the insur?
rectionary government, has gone to New York,
where he will rem un uulil the muidle of this
week. His business there is understood to
bo io arrange for the sale of bonds of tho Pro?
visional Government which lie roprcsenta, and
he will doubtless extend his arrangements for
that purpose to Philadelphia and other cities
of the Union.
THE COLTJMDIA HOTEL.-Major Davis' new
building is rapidly advancing towards comple?
tion, and will bo ono of the handsomest edi?
fices in Columbia. Although oot originally in?
tended for u hotel, thc interior has been so
altered and arranged as to suit the purposo
admirably, it is throo stories hign-thc
frout being painted in imitation of granite.
There aro three wings in .lie rear, and all
the iv oms aro large and airy. Thc main
entrance is in the cemro of thc building,
on tho lirst floor. Thc offico is commo?
dious, and in flanked on either side by
ninokinz and raiding loon;; w.iilo In tho
reara.ro a bdliard-roonj, on ono side, nn.O abtg
gago and wash-rooms, bar and barbershops on
tho oilier. Tho main stairway springs from
tho north sido of tho office and commues to
tho third story-tho ''tread" very broad and
oasv. Many of the apartments aro arranged
en suite for tbo accommodation of families,
t'ho ladies' entranoe leads directly to tho
second Hoof. On the lolt of the Btiirway nro
the pallors, willi sliding doors betwo?n. The
dining-room is ulso on the second fl lor. and is
eighty feet long by over twenty-five in
width, -vi th eight or ten windows-a capital
room for a *'hop."as well aa lor eatin? pur?
poses. A lew feet from tho dinmg-ro..ra is the
kitfhen; which has two doors-to laciliiat? the
outrunco and egress of tho waiters. Thc
kuchen will contain a monster rango, with a
heating apparatus, capab.o of holding one hun?
dred and fifty gallons of water-from .vhich
steam will be supplied to the boaters on tho
jarving tublo; pipes will also convoy hot water
to tho wash-room. There aro grates and eas
burners in nearly every room-about sevoo y
