THE DOGMA OF INFALLIBILITY.
Protest Against the Dogma ky tue Ger?
man and Hungarian Bishops.
The following is the protest of the German
and Hungarian bishops against the Infallibility
Jfost Holy Father-A printed document has
reached us wherein is set forth, for subscrip?
tion by the Fathers of the Council, a petition
be'o-tu" the (Ecumenical Synod to decree the
authority of the Roman Pontiff is supreme, and
therefore free from error, when, in virtue of
hit apostolic power, he speaks to all the faith
Ad masters of faith and morals. It is certainly
wonderful that the jude' s of faith should bc in
Tited to put forth a declaration, signedtry their
own.hands, as to their decision before even the
.abject has been discussed. But, in so grave a
matter, we have decided to appeal to yourself.
Most Holy Father, because being appointed hy?
the Lord to tend his sheep and iambs, you
nave at heart the caro of thc souls redeem?
ed by the blood of Christ, and commiserate
with paternal affection the evils by which they
are threatened. The times have gone by
when Catholics were wont to call in
question the rights of the Apostolic See. There
to no one who denies that, as the body is in
eemplete without the head, so it is impossible
to hold a council representing the universal
Chnrch without the successor of St. Peter,
while all obey thc commands of the Holy See
most readily. Besides which, the Council of
Trent decreed what was to be held by the faith?
ful concerning the authority of the Roman
Pontiff, as also did the Council or Florence,
Whose decree on this matter should be in
everything the more sacredly observed be?
cause it was affirmed by the consent ol thc
Latin and Greek churches, and will form the
basis for the restoration of tlie union, if the
Lord should deign to turn His merciful
?yes towards the East, now oppressed
by so many evils. Moreover, as at the
present day the Christian Church has to sus?
tain a new and hitherto unheard of struggle
?with those who risc np against religion as
though it were a con! ri vance for the destruction
ot the human race, it appears by no means ad?
visable to impose upon the Catholic world,
tempted on every side by so many snares,
burdens heavier than those imposed by the
Fathers of Trent. For the reBt, although with
the universal church, Bellarrcine declared that
"definitions of faith depend chieily from apos?
tolic tradition and the consent of the diuretics."
and although a general council is the shortest
way for ascertaining the opinion of thc uni?
versal church, yet at the well known council
held at Jerusalem by the apostles and ciders,
and down to the Council at Nlcsea, innumera?
ble errors of various churches were expelled
and destroyed by the decisions of the successor
of St. Peter, approved by the consent of the
universal church. It is indubitable that all
Christ's faithful owe trne obedience to the de?
crees ot the Apostolic Sec; moreover, learned
and pious men teach that whatever the Sover?
eign Pontiff, speaking ex cathedra, decrees
concerning faith and morals, is binding, even
without the consent of the churches In any way
declared. Still we cannot pass over in
alienee the fact that there are grave diffi?
culties arising ont of the sayings and acts
of the fathers of the church, and from
jennine historical documents and the teaching
of the church itself; and unless these are en?
tirely solved, the doctrine commended to the
Christian people in the above-mentioned peti?
tion, as revealed by God, cannot be proposed.
Bat our mind recoils from discussing these
matters, and we rely upon your good wUl In
asking that the necessity for such a discussion
aaay not be Imposed upon us. Besides, exer?
cising our episcopal functions over some of
tte chief Catholic nations, we know from daily
experience tho state of affairs among them.
Weare convinced that thc definition demanded
would furnish new arms to the enemies of reli?
gion for stirring up discord in tho Catholic
world, even among men of the greatest distinc?
tion; and we are certain that In Europe-at
least to thc governments ol our nations
it would afford a cause or excuse for
Invading the remaining rights of the
church. We lay these things before
your Holiness with the sincerity which is
.?ue to the common father ol the faithtul, im?
ploring that by your order thc doctrine, the
sanction of which ls demanded, may not be
brought before the Ocuraenical Council for
discussion. Finally, we prostrate ourselves at
your feet, and beg your apostolic blessing for
ourselves and for those whose spiritual wel?
fare is committed to our charge. We arc the
most bombie, obedient and devoted serrants
of your Holiness. Signed-The Archbishops

Th? primacy or jurisdiction of the Roman
Jfcntiff. successor of the Apostle Saint Peter,
over all the church, and, consequently, the
primacy In magistracy, is clearly taught by
the Sacred Scrip ures.
The universal ?md unwavering tradition of
the church teacnes us alike, through the acts
and the declarations of the Holy Fathers and
by the attitude and decisions of several (Ecu?
menical Councils, that the doctrinal judgments
delivered by the Roman Pontiff in respect of
faith and morals are not subject to revision.
With the consent of thc Greeks and of the
Latins there was adopted in the Second Conn- ?
ICU of Lyons the profession of laith contained
ID the following declaration: "Controversies
arising in matters of faith ought to be defined
by (or, with) the judgment of the Roman Pon?
tiff." Likewise, iu the (Ecumenical Council of
Florence it was thus decided: "The Roman Pon
t Iff ls the true Vicar of Jesus Christ, thc head
of the Universal Church, thc falber and teacher
ol all Christains, on whom has been conferred,
in the person of the blessed Peter, the full pow?
er of tending, directing, and governing the
entire chnrch." Sound reason Itself demon?
strates that no one can be in communion of
faith with the Catholic Church If ho be not
united to its head, it being impossible to sepa?
rate, even in thought, the church from Its
Nevertheless there have been, as yet there
arc, a few who, glorying in the name of Catho?
lic, and abusing lt to thc detriment of those
of little faith, dare to teach that sufficient is
that submission to thc authority of the Roman
Pontiff, by virtue of which they accept his de?
crees regarding faith and morals with what
they call a respectful silence, without the In?
ternal assent of thc mind, and solely in a pro?
visional way, till such time as the assent or dis?
sent of the church shaU have pronounced de?
By which perverse doctrine everybody must
see how the authority of the Roman Pontiff is
destroyed, unity of faith shattered, and an am

MATTERS IN GEORGIA.
fhe Political Muddle ut Atlanta.
Tho Georgia Legislature has gone through
the farce of an election for senators, resulting
Ia the choice of Blodgett, Farrow and White?
ley. Tho Conservative members, we Judge
from the number of votes cast, declined to
vote or tako any part in this outrageous fraud
opon the people. This infamy has boen con
Rim mated by thc power of tho mllitarv and
through the instrumentality of thc bayonet.
Tho whole proceeding ls wlthoutthe shadow
Of law or authority. These .men, Blodgett,
Farrow and Whiteley, have boon choren by
the military and not by the people. Every re?
spectable citizen ot Georgia despises these
venal political tricksters and unprincipled
demagogue?. Now comos tho question: Will
Congress admit the lcgallv elected senators,
EUR and Miller, or Ute representatives of th ud
and corruption, Blodgett, Farrow and Whit?
Growth of the Guano Trnde.
The Macon Telegraph and Messenger "learns
from a clerk in tue Central Railroad office,
that up to this time no less than eigH million
pounds of guano have been received and de?
livered into the hand6 of dealers and consum?
era since thc 15th day of last Nov- mber. Eight
mUllon pounds more have passed over tho road
to other railways, and gone into thc country."
The Augusta Chronicle adds:
"These sixteen million of pounds make eight
thousand tons, worth an average of about
eighty dollars per ton, or in the aggregate
over a million and a quarter. This is a large
trade, and shows to what extent planters Tn
aouthwest Georgia now rely upon commercial
fertilizers In the production of cotton. Large
as this showing is, it docs not compare with
the guano trade of this city. We have ono
concern here-thc Dickson Fertilizing Com?
pany-which has sold and received orders for
?tore than five thousand tons, and now orders
io the extent of hundreds of tons are pouring
in upon them dally. This ls a home company,
and wc are rejoiced to chronicle Its admirable
success We have other large dealers in guano
here, some of whom have sold as much as
three thousand tons. We believe we would be
clearly within bounds in saying that Augusta
dealers have sold at least thirty thousand tons
this season, worth over two and a half million
