THE G?N?RAL COUNCIL OF THE
ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH.-The
Geu'oral Council which" has just been
convoked by the Pope to meet at the
Vatican, in Rome, on December 8,
1869, the'festival of the Immaculate
Conception, is the first that has been
called since the Council of Trent,
which assembled at that city on
December 13, 1815, and continued in
session, with various interruptions,
till December 1, 1863, a period of
eighteen years. The General Coun?
cils, called also oecumenical, from a
Creek word meaning the habitable
earth, aro summoned by tho Pope,
and, in the language of the paper
just issued, aro composed of all the
cardinals, patriarchs, primates, arch?
bishop and bishops of the city
(Rome) and of the world, and are
designed to"'adjudge nil questions of
schism and heresy, belief and disci?
pline, which affect tho Universal
Church.' The Popo in person, or by
legates, presides over the Council,
and all questions are decided by a
majority of the votes cast; though at
the Council ot Constance, is 1114,
the members from each of the fivo
nations, Italy, France, Germany and
England, voted separately. General
Councils do not create now dogmas,
but only interpret and declare what
was originally contained in the
Scriptures and tradition, and accord?
ing to the belief of the Roman Catho?
lic Church, are infallible concerning
matters of faith. This infallibility
docs not extend to points of disci?
pline, history, politics or science,
nor to the grounds of their decision,
nor to collateral observations. Tho
Church of Rome only recognizes
nineteen general Councils. The Con?
ference of Prelates, held at Rome in
1854, and which proclaimed tho
dogma of the Immaculata Concep?
tion, wu8 not a Council, but only u

FELLOW-CITIZENS OE NEW YOKE: I
am violating a rule that I imposed ou
myself, when I came on hore, in ad?
dressing you; in speaking at all; but
that I do violate it is due solely to the
people of Now York, who have met
us of tho South with such kindness
aud such cordiality. [At this junc?
ture some of the paper lamps caught
fire and efforts were made to extin?
guish them. I Gen. Hampton, (con?
tinuing,) I do not like to have a fire
in my rear. Gentlemen, I came,
then, solely that I might thank you
for the courtesy that you have ex?
tended to us and to all tho Southern
States, and that I mjght explain to
you why it was that we were hore and
what good wo hope may bo effected
by our presence. It wns determined
by us when wo came on, that we
would take no part in this Conven?
tion-no prominent part-not be?
cause we felt that wo were not the
equals of any other delegates, but
solely because wo were afraid that wt
of tho South-cut off as we have
been for the last few years from the
political world-if wo should indicutc
our preferences wo might accidentally
select men who would bring defeat
upon the great Democratic party
We determined, then, that we would
let the Democracy of tho Uuitec
States, in Convention assembled, in
dicate who was to bo their standard
hearer, and then that we would corni
up in solid phalanx and pledge ou
firm support to the nominations
Acting upon that, we cast our vot
for President of the United Statee
Andrew Johnson, who had stood be
tween us and min. We wished t<
show him that we appreciated tba
kindness, and to pay bim the com
pliment that was due to him. It wa
then, seemingly, the wish of the De
mocracy to take tho great youn
statesman of Ohio, (and when thc
appeared to be the case, South Curr
linn tendered him her -support. Thc
that distinguished soldier, that sou (

who, I take pleasure in saying, wt

grand acclaim, our little State can
next to your own and declared th
he was their choice, emphatically ai
fully. These, gentlemen, were tl
reasons which induced us to take tl
course wo did; and, if wo have bei
mistaken, I am uuro of ono thing,
least, that you will bolieve we ha
boen inspired but by one single m
tive, and that was to promote the si
cess of. the Democratic party,
has been the earnest desiro of t
South, since the war closed, to jc
with the Democratic party, and
want you all to know that if we h
been willing to go to the radi?
party, we could have mode any ter
that we choose; but wo determin
to take defeat with tho Democrs
rather than by sacrificing our prin
pies to gain success with the radier
We believed that if wo wero truo
those principles, if wo were true
ourselves, that God would uot f
sake us, and that those great prit
pies of American liberty, thc gr
underlying principles of the Der
eratic party, would triumph, s
that wo would at last bo free and
livered from tho ruin which has bi
impending over US. And now, g

even with that incubus of black rule
we can carry the Southern States.
Gentlemen, as I said, I do not like to

"Go on; let them oome.") I only
proposed to come here to make my
acknowledgments to you. I came to
tell you thal this nomination which
you bavo made will.meet the hearty
concurrence of tho Southern men,

bow gratified we have been at the

wanted to tell you that though wo
fought in good faith, we laid down
our arms iu good faith. I wanted
you to believe that we were men ol

meant war, and when we said "peace"
we meant peoco, but not that peace
which thc radicals are giving us; not
