WASHINGTON, October 23.
The following was telegraphed North from an
unusually well Informed source:
"It is stated upon good authority -that the spe?
cial Cabinet meeting was called yesterday.to con?
sider the berger case. According to the same
authority, which ls one not likely to be mistaken,
the Attorney-General laid before the cabinet his
* views upon the case, stating that a flaw had been
discovered In the acts of Congress by which the
exoj|Bsive jurisdiction of the military commission
over the case had been supposed te be assured,
and that lt would In consequence be found Impos?
sible to hold Yerger. My informant goes on to say
that the Cabinet came to the conclusion that ver?
ger hod been unlawful)" held, and determined that
? Se B^ould be released on the issue of the writ of
habeas corpus. Verger's guilt or innocence ls not
the question now, but all parties admit that he
ought to be tried by competent constitutional au?
thority, and consequently the expected d?cision <
of the Supreme Court will be received with satis?
faction by every one. In this connection lt ls pro?
per to add that the rumors and printed state?
ments regarding President Grant's intention to
disregard the mandates of the court are proved
to be false by the fact that lt has been In his pow
~. -?r ta execute Yerger's sentence at any time since
" -*",1C wiM forwarded to Wm for approval. Instead
of doing so, however, he has anxiously courted
the intervention of the judiciary for the purpose
. of being'governed In his actions by the highest
authority which could possibly be interested in
the case. It ls therefore probable that in due
course of time Yerger will bc turned over to the
civil authorities for triai." "
It ls positively announced that Sherman and
Grant will attend the meeting of the Army of the
Tennessee, at Louisville, on the 17th of November.

THE COWHIDING AT THE CAPITAL.
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
COLUMBIA, October 22.
A sensation : This morning Assistant Adju?
tant-General Elliott horse-whipped a white
mau named Kavanagh-an assistant secretary
in the office of his Excellency Governor Scott.
The scene of this affair was the stairway in the
Executive office. The cause is sold to be a
letter received by the wife of the Assistant Ad?
jutant General-a letter calculated, as one may
infer, to displease the husband-which he had
reason to believe was written by Kavanagh.
The husband's Indignation found vent in this
affair. The drubbing was given with a heavy
horsewhip, and the amount was liberal. Kava?
nagh is said to deny having written the letter.
A good deal of excitement prevails. The ne?
groes enjoy it vastly, and the sympathy with
tlje prompt visitation of justice, os this is un?
derstood to be, ls not unreasonable. Kava?
nagh is said to be an officer high in thc Grand
Array of the Republic, and, withal, a carpet?
bagger high in favor with the powers, that be.
So consequences may come ol' this affair of
which the uninitiated public have no Idea, for
Elliott is a power in himself, and Massachusetts
(his native State) looKSto him with fond hopes.
He ls her pet and ideal of the man and brother,
sent down to Carolina to show us the superiori?
ty ot* the black to the white lace. His role
herein-in this fracas-is the most honorable
In which he has been thus fur seen to appear.
All parties cry to him, "Lay ou Macduff."
Threats of shooting are heard of about town,
but public expectation is not raised very high
by these threats.

LIGHT AT LAST.
THE KEY TO THE GIGANTIC GOLD OPE?
Wall Street and the White House in
Partnership- Mrs. Grant Jp Mr?. Cor?
bin-Half a Million in Gold Sold for
and on Account of thc President's
Wife at 137-A Presidential Margin of
$12,000 on Bonds-How Corbin Pulled
Much as has been published heretofore with
reference to the gold gambling operations on
the memorable Friday, (September 2ith.) evi?
dent 1J ?great deal yet remains unwritten. The
New York Sun, endeavoring to make the re?
cord complete, Bent a reporter to 6ee Jay
Gould and Fisk, with reference to the Corbln
Butterfield defence. The revelations are fresh
and startling. Mr. Fisk stated explicitly that
Corbin, of his oicn accord, ojffered his in?utnce
with his brotlter-in-law, Resident Grant, for
sale, and that he had received, to his (Fisk's)
own knowledge, two checks-one of $25.000
and one of $100,000. . *
MRS. GRANT'S LETTER,.
Which has already been giv?n to thc phblic
through the special telegrams to THE NEWS,
proved to be the key which has unlocked the
whole mystery of the connection of the admin?
istration with the gigantic gold operations.
The letter was shown by Mr. Corbin to a
prominent gold speculator, who, well aware of
its importance, read it over three times. The
address on the envelope was In the President's
handwriting, but the inclosnrc was written by
his wife. Alter a few remarks in regard to the
children, Mrs. Grant says:
"My husband is very much annoyed at your
speculations. He tries not to tte influenced by them,
but fears he ls. Another reason why they must
be closed is because Cuban matters.will soon
come up in Cabinet, and thc action of our gov
ernmcnt will influence the price of bonds."
NATURE OF THE "SPECULATIONS."
It appears that when thc Loyal League ring
were short of gold and urging Boutwell to sell
Mr. Corbin, as mouthpiece of the bulls in gold,
wrote a letter which was sent to General
Grant, then In Pennsylvania, by special mes?
senger, urging him not to permit any sales of
gold to be made until November; and at the
same time wrote a letter to Mrs. Grant, in?
forming her of tfTe request made to her hus?
band, and stating that if they succeeded she
would make a greai deal of money.
DID MRS. GRANT MAKE THE MONET ?
Mr. Corbin has constantly informed Mr. Jay
Gould that he was very desirous to see Mrs.
Grant and her children comfortably situated,
pecuniarily, ro'Mife. Whether-any actual cash
has been paid over to Mrs. Grant since Mr.
Gould has paid Mr. Corbin $100,000 at one
time and $25,000 at another, does not appear;
but it ls asserted that ten valuable lots,
situated iu Hudson City, have of late been
conveyed to Mrs. Grant by Mr. Corbin. The
value of these lots ls about $20,000. and rapidly
appreciating In value.
HOW CORBIN CAME ON TH|: SCENE.
Mr. Corbin's influence with tho government
having often been denied by the friends of the
administration, Mr. Jay Gould publishes In the
New York papen the particulars of the ap?
pointment of General Butterfield as sub
trotwurcr, which Tra? entirely Corbln'w work.
a.- appears rrom tne following ??ccinct recital
of events :
CORBIN C ONTROLS THE ANOINTMENT.
The first Mr. Gould saw or Mr. Corbin was In
the latter part of May last, when Mr. Corbin sent
ror him, and they had au interview at Mr. Cor?
bin's residence, No. 37 West Twenty-seventh
street, regarding the appointment or a sub-treas?
urer in this city. Mr. Corbin represented to Mr.
Gould that he could control the appointment, and
wanted to know how he and Mr. Gould could
make monev by having thc inside track. Mr.
Gould understood that the appolutee was to be
Mr. R. B. Catherwood, the son-in-law or Mr. Cor?
bin. At a second Interview Mr. Corbin inrormcd
Mr. Gould that lie ha ! dropped Mr. Catlierwood,
rearing that his connection with the President's
ramily might be thc subject or scandalous com?
ment, and that he hud fixed on General Butter?
field as thc appointee, and could get letters irom
Mr. A. T. Stewart and others, which would make
things appear easy and natural. He said he
could conti ol Mr. Butterfield, in rael t hat
he owned him, and Mint lie hud consult?
ed with Mr. Catherwood and thc arrange?
ment was satisfactory to him. Thc understand?
ing was that Mr. Catherwood was to receive onc
rourth or the profits rrom whatever was made by
any financial operations undertaken upon ac
coutit or Mr. Corbin and Mr. Butterfield. Mr.
Butterfield gave Mr. Corbin a letter assenting to
thc agreement, and this letter was shown by Mr.
Corbin to both Mr. Gould and Mr. Catherwood.
Shortly after this Mr. Corbin requested Mr. Gould
to meet Geueral Grant at his (Mr. Corbin's) resi?
dence, which lie did, and subsequently accompa?
nied thc President to Boston, where lie uttended
the Peace Jubilee. On the way Mr. Gould spoke
to General Grant in ravor of the appointment or
General Butterfield, and Immediately after the
President's return thc appolutment of General
Butterfield was made public.
PUMTING THE PRESIDENT.
Some time in July Mr. Gould again met General
Grant at Mr. Corbiii's house, by Invitation or Mr.
Corbin. In the evening Mr. Gould accompanied
Mrs. Corbiu and General Grant's children to the
Opera-House and left them there, returning him
seir to converse with Geueral Grant. He asked
him what would be the financial policy or the gov?
ernment, and the President replied that, as be
was anxious to secure high prices ror farmers'
produce, no gold would be sold before the first of
November, except the regular sales or two mil?
lions a month. Mr. Gould then asked how he
would obtain means to purchase government
bonds, and his answer was that the internal reve?
nue receipts were unexpectedly large, and the
currency balauces in thc Treasury would be suffi?
cient without selling gold. Mr. Gould further in?
quired how he expected to keep money easy, to
which the President replied that there were rrom
twelve to fifteen million going out in pensions, and
that he Intended to increase the fractional curren?
cy from thirty millions to tit*y.
OPERATIONS COMMENCED-THE FIRST TOOL.
Shortly afterwards, on the strength of this In?
formation, Mr. Gould purchased $1,700,000 or
government bonds on the joint account or him
seir, Mr. Corbin, Mr. Catherwood and General
A MARGIN OF $12,000 FROM GRANT.
Mr. Corbin stated to Mr. Gould that lie liad re?
ceived a margin or ten or twelvo thousand dol?
lars rrom General Grant, with which to carry
$300,000 or government bonds, which Corbin said
were held for the account ot General Grant by
Messrs. Stone, Nichols A Stone, Mr. Corbin's
FINALE OF GRANT'S BOND OPERATIONS.
Mr. Corbin said that he was anxious to return
the money advanced by General Grant, and to
show him a profit on the transaction so rar as it
had gone, and desired Mr. Gould to pay Stone,
Nichols & Stone one per cent, more than thc mar?
ket price, and then to carry the bonds for the ac?
count or General Grant until they shonld renell
120, without having any margin or security. Mr.
Gould agreed to do this, reserving, ol' course, the
right to sell the honda at any time, il' neccssrry
to protect himself; and on July 29 he paid stone,
Nichols A Stone $304,500 for those bonds, which
was $3000 more thau they were worth on that
day, and which represented profits that Mr.
Gould's firm anticipated would accrue under the
government policy of buying bonds. The trans?
actions thus entered into between Mr. Corbiu and
his associates resulted In an eventual loss or $50,
ooo. Thc bonds were sold witta the assent of Mr.
PLANNING THE GOLD TOOL OPERATIONS.
Foreseeing rrom the large short Interest in gold
and t he absence of government sales au advance
lu thc price was inevitable, Messrs. Gould and
Corbin determined to enter into a speculation for
thc advance. Mr. Gould visited Mr. Corbin daily
and sometimes twice? ?lu) to consult with him
on thc subject, meeting there almost always Mr.
Catherwood, and Geueral Butterfield occasionally.
HALF A MILLION IN GOLD SOLD FOR THE ACCOUNT
OF MRS. GRANT.
Mr. Corbin gave Mr. Gould orders to buy several
distinct lots or gold, besides taking a joint in?
terest in thc other transactions. Among other
lots, he directed Mr. Gould to purchase $500,000
in gold at oue time, which he did, at the price or
132. When thc market had advanced to 137, Mr.
Corbin directed Mn to sell that lol, which he said
was for the account 0/Mrs. General Grant. This
was the first Intimation that Mr. Gould had re?
ceived that the President or any or his ramllv
were Interested In the market. He sold the gold
accordingly, and crave Mr. Corbin a check for
$25,000 on September 6. Their interviews still
continued to be very frequent, morning and even?
THAT BOCTWELL DINNER AT DELMONICO'.?.
In September they discovered that a number or
bankers and brokers, who were* supposed to be
very influential with Secretary Boutwell, had un?
dertaken to bear the gold market oa a large scale.
Arter they bad made enormous short sales, this
combination sent one or their .number to escort
Mr. Boutwell to this city, and'arranged to give
him a handsome dinner at the Union League Club,
where they exerted their utmost influence to in?
duce him to sell gold.
CORBIN CHECKMATES THB "SHORT" INTEREST.
Learnlug or this movement, and in order to
checkmate it, Mr. Corbin procured from General
Grant a letter, to be delivered to Mr. Boutwell,
peremptorily instructing him not to sell gold.
CORBIN DISTRUSTS HIS OWN APPOINTEE.
This letter Mr. Corbin gave to General Butter?
field, with instructions to deliver lt to Mr. Bout?
well on his arrival; but, various circumstances
having excited Mr. Corbin's suspicions that
General Butterfield was flaying him false, he pro?
posed to Mr. Gould thatisafe message should be
sent tq Getferal Grant with a letter from him
(Corbin,) which,'helaid, would settle all or them.
.This letter he read to Mr. Gould, who thereupon
sent William 0. Chapin to Washington, Pa., to de?
liver it? Mr. Corbin afterwards received a letter
irom a member of Genera" Grant's lamily, In
which the wiitcr expressed great anxiety to have
.ese sp?culations closed.
CORBIN W?NT3 TO GET OCT AT 141.
" When gold reached 141 Mr. Corbin informed
Mr. Gould that he had just sent a lefter by mall to
(ieneral Grant, in which he told him that he was
ont of all speculations, either in gold or in bends,
and that, as an impartial observer, he was de?
cidedly or the opinion that it would be very dan?
gerous to sell gold. He then said that at the
present price or gold there would be about $160,
000 profit; that he wished Mr. Gould to give him a
check for that sum, dedncting $50,000 loss on the
bonds so as to confirm his letter, although it was
written for effect. Mr. Gould replied that it was
utterly Impossible Tor Mr. Corbin to be entirely
clear or the speculation until all parties Interest?
ed had sold out; but consented to give him a
check for $100,000 on account, and he (Corbin) salo
that he would Immediately write a private letter
to thc President explaining his real position, the
other letter being Intended for usc in tire Cabiuet
GRANT COUNTERMANDS AN ORDER FOR TILS SALE
Some time before tills Mr. Corbin told Mr. Gould
that an order had been actually Issued from the
Treasury Department for the sale or gold, and that
General Grant had countermanded it on receiving
a letter from him relating to the subject.
THE OPERATIONS AT THE f-l'B-TKEASl'RT_RE?
PORT OF JAY GOULD'S ATTORNEY.
The following report of Frederick A. Lane,
attorney of Jay Gould, is now t n file in Mr.
NEW YORK, October 14.
Jay Gould, ?s<7.-DEAR SIR: By your request
and acting as your attorney, I called* on General
Butterfield, Sub-Treasurer, at his office, on Satur?
day, 25th day of September last. I stated to Gene?
ral Butterfield that I had called In reference to the
one million and a half dollars of gold he had in the
pool, which, with commission and interest, stood
tn about 140 per cent. I told him that he roust
either put up more margins or take up the gold
entirely, or it would be sold out for his account
and in his name.
The General replied that there was some mis?
understanding ir you bought for him; and while
lie did not admit his legal liability (for they did
not have his signature to anything, nor did thev
have a scrap of paper In his handwriting,) vet,
whatever his friends had done tor him he reit In
honor bound to stand up to, and he would do so.
(1 beg leave lo state that the General must ex?
cuse mc from giving lils exact words, as his con?
versation was so interlarded with profanity that
no gentleman would repeat lt.) He said he had
given orders to sell out his Interest in the pool
some davs before, and that he thought "that old
gray-headed fellow" would play them false and
sell them all out ir they did not look out. He
asked me if I had seen Corbin up there, and
"They had better keep an eye on him."
He asked where Mr. Gould was, and whether lie
could see him ir he went to his house that even?
ing. He said he wanted him (Gould) to under?
stand that he never backed out, and that he would
take up the gold or put up margins on Mondav if
Wemaf Hwraq . mat nc nacl been In a speculation
for another two hundred thousand dollars gold,
and that had drained him or all his funds; that
he wanted to leave the matter to his friend
Tweed, but that lie was ready to do anything lie
could. He was very much agitated, and said
that it was not his fault that the telegram got out
so quick; that when he received lt he showed lt
to your messenger first, though there were other
parties in thc room. He showed mc his letter
hook containing copies of his letters to Mr. Bout?
well, and read me a letter which he had written
to him In reference to the sales on Friday, 24th ul?
He added that there need be no great uneasi?
ness about thc matter, for the ju ice or gold was
not going down, and the loss could not be very
great anyhow, and whatever lt was he would pay
it some time. 1 then telegraphed you as rollows:
"He is alarmed. Says if you bought for him lt
must have been a misunderstanding, but that you
should be protected to thc utmost of lils ability;
that it Is impossible for him to do anything to
dav, and wants to sec you. I told him that was
impossible, that 1 liad full power and must have
margins, or lie must take the gold up. I would
consider, and return in twenty minutes for fur?
I did call in about twenty minutes: he then
said, in order to allow Mr. Gould that he was lu
earnest, he would give him a check on account
that day. He said that he did not have on hand
more than fouror rive thousand dollars, bat would
do what lie could. As my orders from you were
peremptory, to make Iii ni give margins or take
up the j-'old, or have it sold, I asked him If lie
would make lt a matter of honor, and ir 1 would
take the responsibility of not selling him out,
would he without fall give mc a check for at least
$10,000 by three o'clock, and mon; on Monday,
and agree to mortgage his real estate for any bal?
ance to be found due on the transactions when
thev were closed? He replied:
"Yes, 1 will, on my honor as a man, give you a
check for at least ?lO.noo before 2:30 o'clock to?
day, and mortgage the very roof over my head tor
I said I would come in about 2 o'clock, as I
wanted to get up town before 3; lie asked mc to
make lt as late ar, possible, for there were so
many around that it might bc regarded with sus?
picion i' I carne there. I then telegraphed you as
"He will hand me check on account at hair-past
2; more on Monday, and mortgage his house for
balance. Am on my way np to give particulars, so
as to get back to him at appointed time."
In the afternoon when I called, about twenty
minutes past 2 o'clock. I found General Butter?
field with lils hat on ready togo out. He told mc
that lils wire was very 111, that he had Just had
hail a message rrom her to come up in the 3
o'clock train, and that he would bc back on Sun?
day night, and would sec you. I then asked him
what lie meant by giving me his word or honor In
the morning as to the $10,000, and ir he thought
that was behaving like a man. and to remember
what sort or a position lt placed me In with my
clients. He then replied:
"Well, I will show you why I could not pay that
ten thousand. My father (or father-in-law) has
drawn on mc as executor this morning for just
that amount, and it has taken all I could raise. I
could not let that go to protest. But yon tell Mr.
Gould that I will pay all that is due, and he shall
not lose bv me."
He tuen called for the draft on him as executor,
and showed lt to me, adding:
"Why, 1 have forty millions of gold right herc,
but I can't take that to make np my losses, ami
Mr. Gould would not want meto."
I walked up with the General as far as my
down-town office, and he said lie thought he would
stop and see Mr. Gould on his way up to the cars.
The following week I again called upon General
Butterfield at your request, and Had ufurt lier con?
versation with him, In which he stated that as to
his taking a million and one-Hair or gold, or even
a million, it was absolutely Impossible. He had
real estate, but no money. He then referred to
your note, and asked why you should charge liim
With anv specific amount, when you referred in
it to his Interest in the pool, and claimed that be?
fore you had any any right to require any money
from him, you should state the accounts of thc
pool so that lie might see whether any money had
been lost, aud tic would leave it to his friend
Tweed how much he should pay. Just then a
mutual acquaintance cam.- iu, and I arose to
take my leave. But the General stood up also,
and, takiug a piece paper rrom thc table about
as large as hair a sheet or note-paper, he held it
up In rront of us, and said aloud:
"There, those are the figures you wanted to
see," and at the same time held up a small piece
or paper, on which was written:
"I want my Mend Klchnnl Mclicll to act for mc
with Tweed in this matter," or words to that er?
The larger paper effectually concealed the
smaller one, and thc observation of the General
about the figures was simply to mislead our mu?
tual acquaintance as to the object or my visit.
I then left for that day, and have not called on
him since. Very truly yours,
FREDERICK A. LANE.

His Sayings and Doings in New York.
Father Hyacinthe has very sensibly declined
a public welcome in New York. Nothing can
bc gleaned from him in regard to his Inten?
tions, more than has been already stated.
Being requested by a personal friend to give
a statement In his own writing as to his pres?
ent position toward tho head of his order and
of the church, he states that he intended to do
so ere long, but was unable at the present, as
he was waiting letters from Italy, which will
Influence his course. He passes much of his
time in meditation and study, and in writing
letters to everybody who writes letters to
him. Except the ceremony of saying mass,
the monk adheres strictly to the rules of
priesthood In bia church, and openly proclaims
his intention to live" and die a Catholic. In
the course of Tuesday he sent for Father Hec
ker, superior of the Paullsts, In Fifty-nluth
street, and spent the evening In his company.
Father Hocker has sailed for Europe to attend
PATHEK HYACINTHE'S REAL POSITION.
Thc New York Sun editorially remarks:
That Father Hyacinthe Is right in opposing the
reactionary tendencies of the Papal Court all
Protestants, and probably many Catholics, will
readily admit; but the particular way he has
chosen to manifest this opposition, and the cir?
cumstances under which he has done lt, are such
as place him at a considerable disadvantage be?
fore the public.
Two things are clear. The reverend rather has
not renounced his allegiance to the Catholic
Church nor his raith in her doctrines, while he
has plainly broken his vows ol obedience as a
monk. In lils publls.hcd letter, giving his reasons
ror withdrawing rrom thc pulpit or Notre Dame
and rrom his monastery, he makes thc excuse that
the dogmas sought ?to be enforcer! upon the Catho?
lic Church by the powers af Rome are raise and un?
christian, and that h? was fettered in his preach?
ing by the orders or his superiors. The flrst allega?
tion, ir true, might bc considered a good one ror
withdrawing rrom the church ; but as he has not
done so, lt ls useless Tor him to oner lt in exculpa?
tion of his refusal to return to his ministry when
counselled to do so by the superior or his order.
Unless, therefore, his second point be made good
by the facts or the case, he remains w ithout de?
What, now, are the facts? For some time the
reverend father's utterances had been viewed
with distrust by eminent Catholics. He had
taken sides in doctrinal disputes, written letters
against the sentiments or thc Pope, and finally
made an address before a Peace Congress which
Ka vc rise to much unpleasant talk. In conse?
quence or these manircHtatlons, the head of his
Order or Carmelites addressed to him, In July
last, a letter forbidding him to print any letter or
discourse; to preach anywhere but In a church;
to attend the sessions of the French Chambers or
of the Peace Congress; or to bc presentat any
reunion not or a purely Catholic and religious
kind. It is asserted distinctly that these were
f rte only restrictions laid upon him, and that
they do not amount to nn exercise or tyranny is
evident. The rather has put himseir In thc raise
position of l ein? a rebel against legitimate ec?
clesiastical authority withwut aufflc4ent grounds
for the rebellion, and without having taken the
proper steps to relieve himseir, lu a UlguiUcd way,
or lils obligations.
AH to the Protestant ministers who seem anx?
ious to distinguish themselves by welcoming
what they regard as an Important convert from
the enemy, wc advise them to hold back a little
while till they see just how rar they have secured
the prize, and what it will be worth after they get
it. As an orthodox Catholic preacher to French
audiences, Father Hyacinthe was a celebrity. He
has not yet ceased to be a Catholic, and when he
does, and when the support ol the church ls
withdrawn rrom him, he may not prove to be the
power he has been. He is no theologian aud uo
controversialist, and wc very much rear that In a
Protestant pulpit, even with the command or the
English language, he would have but little suc?
FATHER HYACINTHE AND THE AMERICAN CATH?
Thc New York Tablet contains the following
all other Catholic papers that we have seen
adopt substantially the same tone :
If he has come or shall come here expecting to
find sympathy among Catholics with the views
expressed in lils letter to the general or his or?
der, he is destined to a wutul disappointment.
Catholics in this country arc. In general, believ
ers in republican government, and ardent de
fenders or civil liberty and the freedom and in?
dependen, eui Um church; but they are equally
stern defender? or the Divine authority or the
church to teach and govern all men and nations
In all things pertaining to thc spiritual duties,
relations and end or man. They are too well
acquainted with Protestantism to have sympa?
thy with any Protestant or anti-Catholic tenden?
cies. Thc American Catholics who he may have
regarded as working for the ends he proposed to
himseir, he will find to be behind none in their
sincere and earnest censures or his spirit and
conduct. The distinguished American Catholic on
whom he may have counted, since he is held by
Protestants to bc a Liberal Catholic, assured us
personally, nearly two years ago, that he reared
for Peru Hyacinthe, whose views were very un?
sound, and Who was evidently yielding to ten?
dencies the nature o? which he did not under?
stand, and which, ir not resisted in time, would
lead him out or the church.
This is a poor country for shaky, esjicciiilly
renegade, Catholics, if Pere Hyacinthe comes
here expecting to Induce any considerable num?
ber or Catholics, or even a single Catholic, to ac?
cept him as a leader, or to follow him in his most
Intemperate and silly attacks on the authority or
the church, lie will "find that lie has come on a
fool's errand. If he comes as a Protestant seek?
ing sympathy and glorification rrom the enemies
or the church, lie will no doubt be welcomed, but
not with much warmth or respect; for they see
that he comes without any following, and has
only his bare seir to offer them. They already sec
that by leaving the church he has lost hts power
to serve them, mid that they have no further '.:se
