THE VALIDITY OF NEGRO DEBTS.
Alt Interesting Case at Chester.
[From tbe Chester Reporter.]
The Common Pleas docket being called, the
first case taken up was A. S. Wallace, Trustee,
vs. C. D. Melton and X. B Eaves. This was
an action on a sealed note dated in 1858, the
consideration of which was the purchase
money of a negro slave. The plea ot the de?
fendants was failure of consideration, and the j
unsoundness of the negro was relied upon to
establish the plea Messrs. Walker ? Brice
were attorneys for the plaintiff and Messrs.
McAllley ? Brawley for the defendants. Mr.
McAllley made a very interesting argument to j
the courland Jury against the validity of negro
debts. He took the ground that slavery was
entirely an Institution of force, that lt did not
find its origin in the common law, that lt had
DO legal or moral eanctlon, and that, there?
fore, when the force which upheld lt was over?
come by other force and the institution fell,
all contracts which owed their origin to the
institution fell with it. General Walker replied
with force, impressing the Jury with the law
as laid down by the Supreme Court, and charg?
ing them that lt was their duty to be governed
by thal law in making up their verdict in the
case. Judge Thomas, while expressing him- |
self as agreeing with the principles laid down
by Mr. McAllley, told the Jury that he was
hound by the law as laid down by the Supreme
Court, and was obliged to charge them that
negro debts were as valid as any other debts.
The jury retired, and in a few minutes brought
In a verdict-"for the defendants. The plain?
tiffs gave notice of a motion for a new trial.
This lt the first case tried here since the war
lu which the validity of negro debts was in?
volved. As there are many of the same kind
on the docketJt was considered important asa
precedent, AB, however, the negro was proved
to have been very unsound at the time ot the
purchase, and a source ot expense, rather than
of profit, to the purchaser from that time till
the time of her death, the Jury may have based
their finding altogether upon the fact of un?
soundness, and may not have considered at
all the general question as to the validity of |
such debts. ^ _ ,

[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.;
NEW YORK, February 7.
Connecticut is go near by that we in New
York feel almost as much interest in her po?
litical struggles as ia our own. Besides, it is
liberally charged by both parlies In every cam?
paign that many of our citizens, who follow
the profession of voting early and often at
elections, take occasion to participate m those
of Connecticut. It ls certain, however, that
a large part o? the money used In carrying on
the annual campaigns In Connecticut ls raised
here, and that the Federal officials down?
town are usually taxed a percentage on their
salaries to help the Radical cause along in the
Parties are so evenly divided in Connecti?
cut, that the elections have more spirit and
work in them than those in most other btates :
and coming as they do in the spring, they are
regarded as indices of the influence of current
congressional legislation on politics. This be?
ing the Presidential year, the Connecticut
campaign possesses additional interest. The
Democratic convention was held at New
Haven yesterday, and as ex-Governor En?
glish, who had been the standard bearer sev?
eral years running, positively declined a re?
nomination, there was great curiosity to
know whom the Democrats would put up in
his stead. It was a condition precedent that
tne man should be not only popular and of j
high character, but also a rich man, for guber-1
natorial candidates in Connecticut have to
conti '.bute heavily to the necessary expenses
of their desperately contested elections.
Bichard D. Hubbard, o? Hartford, was se?
lected. He is an ex-member of Congress, a
lawyer of unusual ability, and has a plenty ot
money. He can make a good speech, which
English could not. and therefore is better
able to compete with Governor Jewell, who ls
bis Radica! opponent. The political situation
ls complicated by the presence of four tickets
in the Held. The Labor Beform and Temper?
ance parties have also made nominations.
They will not poll many votes, but those they
do will mostly come from the Badlcals, and
in a contest in which fifty votes may turn the
state, they ore of importance in calculating
the chances. The election, which takes place
early in April, though it follows that of New
Hampshire, will be watched with anxiety, as
it will show how far the Republican schism
has penetrated Into that part of New England.
It may be added that the resolutions of the
Democratic Convention do not differ materi?
ally from those adopted by the Missouri Libe?
ral Republicans, at their late meeting at Jef-1
A curious trial has been in progress in Brook- j
lyn, and its result has been looked for with In?
terest not only by all good Presbyterians but
by the advocates of "woman emancipation/
The rather notorious Presbyterian minister,
Dr. Cuvier, in defiance of a canon of his
church, permitted a certain woman, Miss Smi?
ley, the Quakeress, to preach from his pulpit.
For this he was cited to appear before the
Brooklyn Presbytery. The occasion was one
almost of excitement among the Presbyterians
of that city, and the church where the trial
was held was crowded to overflowing. The
doctor spoke in his own defence, but asked
that the matter might be allowed to go before
the general assembly for adjudication, as he
was about to start for Scotland, and could not
bear to visit the brethren there with the brand
ot condemnation from his own presbytery
There were many old-fashioned miolsterB In
the court who spoke vigorously against this
phase of the woman movement. Oze of them
stood up and declared that he "loved woman,
but nene of them should ever dictate to him."
Another "dened any maa to show, from Gene?
sis to Malachi, that ever a woman was in?
stalled in gospel functions." The discussion
assumed a tone of acrimony, but Anally the
spirit ot compromise prevailed. A carefully
worded resolution was passed, In which the
name of the offender was omitted, but the
rule of the church reasserted. It may be
taken as another authoritative utterance of |
the Presbyterians agulnst the unsexed woman
and all her works. It was as follows:
"Tne Presbytery having been Informed that
a woman has preached In one of our churches
on a Sabbath, at a regular service, at the re
auest ot the pastor, and with the consent of J
ie session: therefore
"Resolved, That the Presbytery feel con?
strained to enjoin upon our churches strict re?
gard to the following dellverence of the Gene?
ral Assembly of 1832: 'Meetings of pious
women by themselves for conversation and
prayer we utterly approve; but let not the
Inspired prohibition of the great apostle, as
found in his epistles to the Corinthians and to
Timothy, be violated. To leach and to exhort
or to lead us In prayer In public and promis
crous assemblies, ls clearly forbidden to
wiJQeB In the Holy Oracles." '
A recent exhibit of the condition of the
chorchea In New York showed that the
seating capacity was less than three hundred
thousand. ThiB leaves a population o? seven
hundred thousand unchurched; or, taking into
account young children and invalids who can?
not attend religious services, at least a third
of a million of people in the city could not be
accommodated with church sittings if they
desired them. The larger proportion of these
is, undoubtedly, of the poorer classes. With
them, however, lt is rather Indifference than
want of church accommodations that prevents
their hearing ihe Gospel preached unto them.
How to get down the drag net BO as to
gather in the people who don't care to go to
church has been the interesting problem of |
some of our local evangelists. S?vices In
theatres have oftentimes before attracted the
Indifferent class, and many, doubtless who
came to be amused remained to pray. A
number of Brooklyn ministers hie upon a
plan- lor alluring the outsiders to religious
services, and last Sunday night it went Into
Buccesslul operation. The elegant Academy
of Music in that city has been engaged for a
series of Sunday evenings at a cost of one
hundred dollars per night, the expenses be?
ing defrayed by subscription. PosterB were
put up all over the city announcing thc pro?
gramme of entertainments lor the evening.
"Seats free and no collection taken up."
The etar name was that of Miss Smiley, the
Quakeress preacher, whose appearance In
Dr. Cuvier's pulpit has caused that gentleman
so much bother. Madame Yarian Hoffman,
the celebrated singer, was announced for
solos, assisted by a first-class choir. Mr.
Gallaher, the most sensational of the Baptist
ministers, (who draws tquat to Beecher,) and
Dr. Powers, a powerful Congregational
preacher, were also promised.
The consequence was that never since the
Academv of Music was built had such a mul?
titude Ailed lt. Not only was every seat oe-1
cupled, but every inch of standing room In
the auditorium, even up to the roof. The
stage in rear of the speakers and singers was
packed with human beings, who stood during
the service. Thc orchestra was full and so
were the stage boxes. The doors had to be
closed a quarter of an hour before services be?
gan, as no more people could get In with
safety to the building, and even some ol the
ch o ri s; era were unable to penetrate through
the mas?. The services were a decided sue-1
cess, and when Miss Smiley concluded her
earnest appeal, so strong ls habit, lhere was a
round of applause in the gallery. Dr. Powers,
who conducted the proceedings, aunounced as
stars for the forthcoming evenings Bev. Dr.
Chap?n and Rev. Mr. Hep worth. One of the
secular papers irreverently called this "sugar?
coated religion," but what matter BO long os

of the Donate.
LONDON, February 6.
The opening of-the session for 1872 ot" the
imperial Parliament took place to-day. The
attendance of members was unusually full.
Shortly after assembling the members of the
House of Commons were summoned to the
House of Lords, where the Lord Chancellor
read the Queen's speech, as follows:
My Lords and Gentlemen:
I avail myself of the opportunity afforded by
your reassembling for the discharge of yonr
momentous duties to renew the expression of
my thankfulness to the Almighty tor the de?
liverance of my non from the most imminent
danger, and my lively recollection of the pro?
found and universal sympathy shown by my
loyal people during that period of anxiety and
I propose that on Tuesday, the 27th instant,
conformably to the good and becoming usages
of former days, that the blessing thus received
shall be acknowledged on behalf of the nation
by thanksgiving in the Metropolitan Cathe?

hope to be present. Direction has been given
to provide the necessary accommodation for
the members of Parliament.

from foreign powers continue in all respects

tbat my endeavors at all times will be steadily

The slave trade and the piratic practice
scarcely to be distinguished from slave trading
are still pursued in more than one quarter ot
the world, and continue to attract the atten?
tion of my government. In the South Sea
Islands, the name of the British Empire is
even cow dishonored by the connection of
some of my subjects with these nelarlous
practices, and in one of them the murder of
an exemplary prelate cast fresh light upon
some of the baneful consequences. A bill
will be presented you for faci ll tating the trial
of offences of this class In Australia, and en?
deavors will be made to increase in other
forms means for the counteraction of the evil.
THE FRENCH COMMERCIAL TREATY.
Various communications have passed be?
tween my government and that ot France on
the subject of the commercial trea'y con?
cluded in 1860. From the divergence in
views respectively entertained in relation to
the value of protective laws this correspon?
dence has not brought about any agreement
to modify that Important convention. Both
sides, however, have uniformly declared their
earnest desire that nothing shall occur to Im?
pair the cordiality which bas so loDg pre?
vailed between the two nation?. The papers
relating to these subjects will be laid oefore

United States large claims are Included, which
are understood on my part not to be within

you, so far as the present experience allows
judgment to be expressed, upon the percepti?

constant efforts of the crown to discharge the
duties, uphold the rights and delend the honor
of the empire.
AFTER THE READING OF THE SPEECH.
There was a full attendance of members at
the assembling of the House ot Commons to?
day. After the body hud returned from the
House ot' Lords the usual bills for the. aboli?
tion of the game laws, university terts, ex?
cise, &c, were presented. Dr. Donald Dal?
rymple introduced a resolution looking to the
amelioration of the condilion ot inebriates.
Mr. Millbank gave notice of his Intention to
offer a resolution asking Sir Charles Dilke
if he adheres to the sentiments express?
ed in his speeches delivered at New Castle and
oiher places during the recess of Parliament.
Mr. Disraeli then arose, and called the at?
tention of the House to the paragraph ol'the
royal speech In reference io the ai bitratlon of
the Alabama c'aim?. He animadverted at
some length upon the Treaty of Washington,
for the faults ol'which he blamed Earl Gran?
ville and Mr. Gladstone. In viewof develop?
ments which had been made by the assem?
blage of the arbiters at Geneva, Mr. Disraeli
wanted to know why the government was
exaltant- over the edification lt had giren to
Parliament on the subject. The rojal speech
was signally unsatisfactory, and showed, in
his opinion, that the government still lacked
a proper appreciation of the gravity of the
question at Issue between England and the
United States. The American claims were
greater than those which would follow total
conquest. They were preposterous, Impracti?
cable, and if admitted would be fatal to the
power and honor of England. Tet, said Dis
rael!, sneeringly, the whole subject Is dis
posed of in one brief paragraph ot the royal
Mr. Gladstone followed In reply. He said
the Treaty of Washington itself shows that
England is ready to make every concession
short of national honor to establish friendly
relations with America, and to set an exam
pie to be followed by other nations hence
forth. The government, said the premier,
ready to explain everything in connection
with the treaty, but lt will not admit that
has unwittingly mads a mistake. The para
graph in the treaty Ii the only fair and unmls
takable interpretation of the treaty. He
could, if he desired, lefer to the preposterous
character of the American demands, which
Itself proved their absurdity-for they were
such as no people In tie last extremity of war
or in the lowest depthi of national misfortune,
with the spirit of tne people of England In
their hearts, would erer submit to. [Cheers.]
Mr. Gladstone concluded by saying that the
government would nalntaln the position
had taken firmly, though in a friendly man?
THE ENGLISH VIEW OF THE CASE.
How the Com m Us lon en Understand
In view of the excited spirit of the Eogllsh
press on the Alabamaclaims, and of the vague
and weak treatment of this question In the
Queen's speech, the ?llowlng from the New
York World is worth direful considera!lon :
The remarks made ly 8lr Stafford Northcote,
(who, lt will be remenbered, was one of the
British commlssioneri in Washington,) in a
speech In Parliament on the evening of AU
gust 4, 1871. upon th? motion of Slr Charles
Addersley for the production of copies of
Instructions given by her Majesty's Govern
menf to the commisioners at Washington,
are of interest at this moment. Slr
Charles, lt-will be remembered, was an -un
friendly critic of the trsaty, which was vlndl
cated In an elaborate ipaech by Slr Bounden
Palmer, (one of the British counsel at Gene
va,) by Mr. Gladstone and by Slr Stafford
Northcote. In the effort of the latter to make
the treaty acceptable tn Parliament and to the
British public, he commented distinctly upon
the very question of eonsequential damages
which now excites so much emotion in Lon
don. He appears to hive declared explicitly
that, in his opinion, ?ne treaty excluded ail
claims for Indirect losss; but what he says
however, only goes to the extent of an indi
calton on his part of wlat he intended, and of
the proper Interpretanda to be put upon the
decuraent: He says :
"The claims arising ?ut of the acts of the
Alabama and other vessels were most clearly
defined tn the treaty. The honorable mem?
ber for Blcbmond had rem irked that the pre?
vious conventions left many points vague,
and Introduced a number of claims which we
could never have admited. They were left
so vague, indeed, that lt would have been pos
Bible under those culms to have raised a
number ot questions which this country was
not willing to submit to arbitration. They
might have raised qutsllons with regard to
what they called England's premature r?cog?
nition of belligerency And the consequential
damages arising trom tie prolongation of the
war, and with regard ilsa to other questions
which this country coild not have admitted.
Instead of this being the case, however, the
treaty, as actually coicluded, narrowed the
questions at Issue ven closely, by confining
the reference solely tolosses growing out of
the acts of particular Vissels, and so shutting
out a large class of o?alos upon which Ameri?
cans had heretofore fnsLted. He contended,
therefore, that the Joint nigh Commission
had upon this point worked substantial advan?
tage rather that Injury to this country."
GRANTS BARDS ENSE.
[From the Sew Torie Times.]
Genera! Grant has resolved to make no
modification in our cue as lt was originally
presented, and In doing so he will be support?
ed by the country. A3 for talk ot war, lt ls
too absurd for serious discussion. The people
of England do not want to go lo war with
this country-this country does not want to
go to war with them. Probably such an Issue
hos never been seriously discussed, even in
the most Intemperate ot the English journals.
The cable messages are very apt to misrepre?
sent and exaggerate CD m men ts on such sub?
jects. It suits some hare-brained writers lo
get up a war-cry, but the bulk ot the people
fa the United States and England know that
war between two such nations would be a dis?
grace to civilization, and they are not likely
to be hounded into it by passionate Journal?
ists. If the Geneva Conference should lal),
we shall only be where we were before; but
the position of England will be worse than lt
was bet?re, and lt ls lo be hoped lhat Mr.
Gladstone and his government will perceive
this, if his advisers in the press do not.

New York Society Gossip-A. Leap-Year
Pan y and How lt was Gondncted
Fashion Hints for Spring.
^ Jennie June, in ber Fashion letter for Febi
ary, saya :
The proposed foundation of a "Womans'
Dress Gulla" in London is a reminder of the
most recent of the many projects lo arrest the
spread of criminal folly and extravagance In
dresB, attempted in this country. The latest
scheme was most strongly endorsed and sec?
onded by Miss Phobe Cary, and lt was her un?
expected illness and lamented death which
prevented lt from becoming an actual fact.
The circular had been drawn up, and a Hst
made out ol those ladies who were to be Invi?
ted to her house to aid in the formation of a
dress association, to Include every woman In
the whole country who would make the reten?
tion ot the short walking dress the first arti'
cte of ber dress creed. But death stepped in [
and prevented the accomplishment of the de?
The proposed rules for the London "Wo?
mans' Dress Guild" are the following, and
they are subscribed to by a number ot ladies
of social position and distinction :
1. Not to make purchases unless they can
be paid for at the time, or when the account
is sent in.
2. Never to buy anything simply "because lt
3. To dress in a manner befitting the station
or occupation in lire of the member.
4. To consider the personal tastes of heads
of families within the llmlis of these rules: but
not to make anything a plea for personal ex?
5. To use nothing false for mere purposes of
ornament, or because lt 1B tho fashion, such
as lalse Jewelry, false hair, dec.
6. To avoid all exaggerations belonging to
the fashion of the day, which might attract
7. To avoid all unseemly style of dress, how?
ever much lt may be encouraged by the pop?
ular fashion of the moment.
8. To attend most scrupulously to neatness
and cleanliness, and not to waste needlessly
either time, .(In frequent chjngeB of dress,)
money or dress Itself.
These rules are too sensible to become fash?
ionable; a blind adherence to fashion presup?
poses absence of common sense, and a dis?
regard of modesty and propriety when they
Interfere with the caprice of the moment;
but they may Influence ll, and they are inter?
esting as snowing which way the wind ls
blowing from different quarters of the earth
1 A LEAP-TEAR PARTY.
We hear very little of fancy dress parties or
gift weddings, probably because people are not
In tbe mood for playing the harlequin or the
tool. But quite a novelty took place recently
In the shape of a private leap-year party,
which was a great success, less on account of |
Its peculiar features than the spirit with which
it was carried out.
The dressing was fancy, or otherwise, ac?
cording ta humor, and several young ladles
availed themselves of this privilege to getup
costumes In the most exaggerated glrl-of-the
period style, including hat. coat, cane, Jaunty
boots, and lace ruffles decorating the open
throat and wrists.
"Dolly Varden" - and "Watteau" dresses
were also In high feather, the former consist?
ing of a brightly flowered chintz tunic, cut
square and very low, with antique sleeves,
and skirt very much bunched up over a quilt?
ed silk petticoat, the latter ot a white muslin
or tarletan skirt (short) trimmed with nar?
row flonnces.and pannlered skirt; with deeply
pointed bodice of white silk, brocaded In a
small rose-bud pattern. A muslin fichu, laid
in three broad tolds, and edged with two rows
of narrow black velvet, little muslin ?pron
trimmed with black velvet to match, high
heeled pink satin shoes, hair powdered quite
white, and straw hat set on one side and
triai med with a wreath of small pink roses
without lews, were of course de ngeur, and
produced a char mia - offact. quite taking one
back to the seventeenth century, and to the
Arcadian groves and shepherdesses, whose
poetic lives were in such strong contrast to
our prosaic ones.
There were quite a number of very good
fancy dresses worn by ladies, (the gentlemen
were not so successful,) particularly "Fire," In
scarlet tarletan, and ornamented with ash
gray, black and red roses, in gold leaves; same
lu the hair. Also, Spring, In light green, over
white, with a wreath of primrose and violets.
A mermaid's dress was very much admired,
and consisted of a long skirt of light sea-green
faille, almost covered hy a tunic ol'crystallized
tulle ol' the same shade, caught up on one side
only with a trail of sea weed and coral, mixed
with crystals and water lilies; a wreath ot the
same In the hair, which should be blonde and
flowing. Shell or mother-of-pearl Jewelry
should be worn with this dress, and not a set
of elaborately cut and carved coral, as was the I
case on the occasion referred to. A most pe?
culiar dress, and one which excited constant
attention, was that of the "White Lady of Ave-1
nel." It consisted simply of a long, plain trail?
ing dress of soft white cashmere, without
trimming or anything shining except a
broad slim belt at the waist, and a silver cir?
clet rouad the head, below which the hair
hangs loose, but covered with a long white
veil, which can be used to conceal the face
Of course, the ladles acted as ushers and
waited upon the gentlemen, calling for them
In carriages and taking them home in the
most approved style; also furnlahing them
with bouquets. It was a forfeit during the eve?
ning to introduce a gentleman to ? lady; so?
cial etiquette was reversed, and the ladles
were always presented to the gentlemen, who
put on airs and pretended to be engaged for
all the dances, and carried liny lace handker?
chiefs on the lips of their fingers, and ate
enormous quantities ol ices with a great
affectation of not eating anything at all. Al?
together the leap year party was most suc?
cessful, and liiere ls talk among a select and
intimate coterie ol getting up another In
which the gentlemen chall be attired as ladles i
and the ladles as gentlemen, the vagaries of |
costumes la both cases to be exaggerated as
much as oo3Blbl6. This ls to lake place at J
Delmonlco's, und if tbe idea Is carried our,
some immensely grotesque effects will be pro?
NEW VISITING COSTUME.
Several decided Innovations In visiting cos?
tumes have been exhibited recently, which
were both striking and distingu?. Instead of I
the time-honored black velvet cloak, modern- f
Ized into the polooalse, and worn with rich
black or colored faille dress, or the complete
velvet suit, alwavs elegant and lady Ilk?*,
some leaders of the ton have lately displayed
visiting toilets composed of deml-trained
skirts of black Lyons velvet and long em?
broidered polonaise ot white, or light gray
cloth, with hanging Bleeves, and bordering
below a somewhat deep braided embroidery of
rich fringe. Tho muff and small round bon?
net are of black velvet, the former trimmed
with narrow bands of gray, or silver fox fur;
the lauer ornamented with a small gray or
white ostrich plume, and perhaps a tea ro3e.
The gloves are of a light gray, or the rose
tint, and no Jewelry is worn except a broad
flat gold cross, which Hie boa discloses when
lt ls thrown aside. Very light gray will, it ls
thought, be a favorite spring color.
Small round velvet bonnets, in black, myr- j
tie green or chocolate brown, are the favorite
winier promenade and visiting styles. The
soft crown Blands up from the head, and is
surrounded by a quilling of velvet, or a
straight, narrow brim. Very little trimming
is used-only a bow of velvet and a tea rose,
-or a small plume set at the lett side in place
ol the woruout aigrette.
SPRING SUITS AND CAMBRICS.
Most of the spring suits in preparation are j
made up with the Queen Margare t polonaise,
the waist of which is cut with a spring, and
forms a small basque at the back. There are
others, the upper garments to which are cut
In the Gabrielle polonaise style, that is, whole
in front, with ornamental bows or rosettes
and simulated basque back. The most stylish
of Ihese upper dresses are cut very long and
very llttled trimmed. The underskirt, for ex?
ample, is rather long, and perfectly plain; the
upper dress reaches within a quarter of a yard
of the bottom of the lower skirt at the back,
and is simply cut out In wide, shallow scal?
lops and bouud. Some are looped only on
one side. Some are not looped up at all.
For a spring house dress, nothing can be
prettier than a light, blue poplin skirt, and long
overdress of soft, light, gray cashmere, bound
with blue. It could be readily caught up with
battons and loops'for walking. Cashmere ofa
very light cameo tint over a skirt of chocolate
browu would form another stylish combina?
tion. Long, soft, graceful folds are now quite
taking the place indoors of the puffed out skirts
and panniers, while for the street, the walking
skirt wi i h deep pleated or scalloped flounces
and plain long casaque without ruffles or puff?
ings, and only sufficient fullness to give grace
to the tournure has superseded the ?hort,
bunched up, ruffled skirts, and divides the
honors wita'the sack mantle- which must
charmingly complete some ot the prettiest
and most young-lady-llke fortbcomlne suits
The pretty striped cambrics and percales
which always make their appearer** with the
first of the crocuses and snow drop?, cannot
be put to belter use than by making them un
into long sack moruing dresses, with or with?
out a deep flounce, sewn to not put In the
skirt, or into rattier long skirts, and sacques,
simply furnished with a broad hem belted in
with a bow at the- back of the belt. In the lat?
ter form they can be worn as summer street
dresses in the country. JUNKIE JRE.
The Cause and manner of Hit Death
His Public History and Private Char?
[From the Ba:timo e Gazette, or Thursday.]
- Tue Moat Rev. Martin John Spalding, Arch?
bishop of Baltimore, died at quarter before
five o'clock yesterday, at the Episcopal resi?
dence on North Charles street, adjoining the
Cathedral Church. During the past turee
years the Archbishop had several serious at?
tacks of illness, ono of which occured while
he was attending the (Ecumenical Connell in
Borne. He returned, however, to Baltimore
with health almost entirely restored, and was
received, on his arrival, by an ovation of the
people. One of his first public acts, after his I
arrival, was the laying of the corner-stone of |
the Convent and Chapel of the Oblate Sisters
of Providence, at the corner ol' Chase and
Parnassus streets, which was attended by
several thousands of people.
After that he had a severe attack of Mneas,
inflammation of the stomach, which confined
him to bis room for several weeks, but he
again recovered and made a visit to New
York, and on his return resumed his episco?
pal visitations. About two weeks before
Christmas he was attacked with capillary
bronchitis, which from the beginning was of
the most violent character. He was at once
prostrated, and the highest medical skill was
called to him, but the disease baffled all efforts
to subdue lt. Throughout the whole time, and
up to yesterday afternoon, his sufferings were
Intense, but still a hope lingered with those
who knew and loved him that his robust con?
stitution would conquer tho disease, and be
would be restored to the church.| Almost dally
his physical condition would change, one day
the malady having the appearance of yielding
to treatment, and the next nope would die.
At noon yesterday there was a change, which
made lt evident that he had but a few hours to
live. He was fully aware of bis approaching
death, but his mind was perfectly dear, and
he spoke freely to those around him, up to
within a few minutes of his death. Bight

Dr. Becker, Bishop of Wilmington; Bev. Lan?

Louisville, Ey., ana Bev. Father Coskery,

Marlin John Spalding, Archbishop of Balti?
more, was born near Lebanon, Kentucky, on
the 23d day of May, MHO. His father, Bicbard
Spalding, was a native of St. Mary's County,
and his mother, Henrietta Hamilton, a Dative
of Charles County, Maryland, and emigrated
with their parents to Kentucky tn nod. tha?
an almost unbroken wilderness. The Arch?
bishop was the sixth cw ic of his parents, and
when in his twelfth yesir was sent to St.
Mary's Seminary, In Marlon County, which
had been built by the Catholic people, his
father having been one of the most prominent
In the enterprise. In 182G he graduated at St.
Mary's, and having determined to enter the
priesthood, went at once to Bardstown, Ken?
tucky, where he remained for four years in
St. Joseph's Seminary, teaching in the college
and studying theology. In April, 1830, ne
sailed for Borne, and on the 7th day of August
following entered the Urban College of the
Propaganda. At the end of four years he
made a public derence, covering the whole
ground of theology and canon law, and com?
prising two hundred and fifty-six theses,
which he maintained In Latin, against all op?
ponents, for seven hours. For his able and
eloquent championship be was made a Doctor
of Dlvinty by acclamation.
On the 13th of August, 1S34. Dr. Spalding
was ordained priest by Cardinal Pedlclnl. and
after celebrating his first mass in the subter?
ranean chapel of St. Peter, he started on his
return two days afterward. There were no
ocean steamships In those days, and his Jour?
ney lrom Borne to his home in Kentucky oc?
cupied four months. As soon os he arrived he
was made pastor of St. Joseph's Church,
Bardstown, and on the death of Bev. G. A. M.
Elder, president of St. Joseph's Seminary, he
wss appointed his successor. In 1843 Dr.
Spalding was called to the Cathedral In Lou?
isville, and In 1848 to the Episcopate, under
the title ot Bishop of Lengone, and as coadju?
tor to the venerable Bishop Flaget, Bishop
of Louisville, and was consecrated on the
10?h of September, in that year. He spent
altogether twenty years in Louisville,
where he acquired a high reputation as
a writer, controversialist and pulpit ora
tor, besides having published several
works. He was always ready to expound
and defend the dogmas of his church, and to
enter the field against any opponent. The
Supreme Pontiff fully recognized his zeal, and
In the death of Archbishop Francis Patrick
Kenrick, in 1663, Bishop Spalding was created
Archbishop of Baltimore on ihe 12th of May,
1861, and t he Primate ot Honor of the Roman
Catholic Church in the United States. He
took format possession of the Archiepiscopal
Sec on the 31st day of July, 1864, the remem?
brance of which, at the cathedral, ls still
fiesh with the Catholics of Baltimore, from
that time he was actively engaged In the
duUes of his high office. During his admin?
istration, five new churches were bulli In Bal?
timore, and three In Washington, besides
others throughout the Archdiocese _to the
number of upwards of twenty.
In 1866 Archbishop Spalding convened and
presided over the second Plenary Council of I
Baltimore, composed of forty-seven bishops
and archbishops. For this convocation he
was appointed by Pope Plus IX delegate
apostolic, with ample powers. The acts and
decrees of that council were approved by the
Holy See. In June, 1867. he visited Borne to at?
tend the eighteen-hundredth anniversary of
the martyrdom of Saints Peter and Paul, and
to assist at the canonization of various great
heroes ol' the church in modern times. On
the 23th day ol June of that year, Archbishop
Spalding, at the head ot four archbishops and
eighteen bishops from America, was received
by the Pope, who complimented them on the
result of the Second Plenary Council. On the
27th, two days later, the Pope delivered his
allocution, praising ihe zeal of the prelates in
coming to Borne lu honor of the Holy See.
On the 18th day of December, 1869, Arch?
bishop Spalding was again called to Borne,
took his place in the (Ecumenical Council,
and there remained one ot Its most prominent
members until the proceedings were suspend?
ed by ihe Pope In consequence of the Invasion
of Rome by Victor Emanuel. He was a firm
supporter ol the dogma ot Papal Infallibility,
and had the strong personal confidence and
friendship of Pius IX. During bis adminis?
tration of the Archdlocesejof Ballimore, Arch?
bishop Spalding was very zealous for the wel?
fare of the children, and through his Instru?
mentality many schools and charitable Institu?
tions were established. Among the most
prominent of these is St. Mary's Industrial
Schools for Boys, a short distance from the
city, on land donated for the purpose by the
late Miss Emily McTavtob. He built a large
and handsome building, and turned over the
school to the charge of the Xaverlan Broth?
ers, brought from Belgium for the purpoee,
but up to his last illness always exercised a
personal supervision over lt.
In disposition the Archbishop was genial,
and at once became a favorite with all whe
were brought Into contact with him, and
never Obtruded his religious views upon a nj
one, except in the performance of ble eplsco
pal functions. His writing? were confined
principally to church works, and he had lec?
tured throughout the country. In 1860, he '
delivered a course ol three lectures ar the -'
Smithsonian Institute, by invitation ol Profes?
sor Henry, on the Origin, Elements and His?
tory of Modern Civilization. He was a pleas?
ant speaker, his style having been conversa?
tional rather than otherwise, bat occasionally,
when Warmed by his subject, he became elo?
quent, and his arguments were drawn from a
def p well of knowledge.
The remains of the Archbishop will be pre?
pared to-day, and lie in state at his late resi?
dence until ll o'clock on Monday,, when the
funeral will take place. Nearly all the arch- ."
blebops and bishops of the country, lt ls ex?-',
peeled, will be present, besides a large num?
ber of. the clergy. Archbishop McCloskey, ot..
New York, will probably preach the funeral
discourse. Last night- as soon as his death
wan announced, the bells of all the Catholic
Oh?irches in the city were tolled for an hour ;
In recognition ot the sad event to the whole
