l T. "That; we differ with the Bishop on cer
tain joints of Religious Faith, is quite true;
but wo have no wislt to abridge his liberty
on that account. Whether in this ciuntry

Catholic or Protesiuni, without the least re

fou and nature of God, tlis attributes and
ills requisitions, are themes above the Suhero
and supervision of the Stmt, and cannot
properly bo rnodo the subject of inquisition
and discipline by civil magistrates and tip-,
Mavrs. We do not (asking the Archbish
. op'd pardon) deny to God the right 10 im
pose nn Man any obligation whatever; but
we deny to man tlvi rilil to determine for
mlicrs what obligations to acknowledge and
worship Ilim God lias or has not impostd.
In not the difference between our position
ami that assigned us by the Archbishop a
very jdain one I '
II. The Archbishop, as we wcro quite
sure, is in favor of Civil and Religious Lib
ertywith a difference. He does 1.01 think
the Sovereign Pontiff "forced to throw his
States open for ihe r aching of every form
of Protestantism and InfiJuliiy." , Lei us
think of this: '
There arc at all times in the Roman
States, especially in their Metropolis, a con
siderable number of educated, serious-minded,
enlightened Proiomants, to whom their
Religion and its ministrations are very pre
cious.. There is probubly no time when
these are not liuudreds, while they some
limes amount (we think) 10 thousands ; but
th number is immaterial, since the Rights
of Conscience are not dependent on num
bers. Among these are several eminent
Protestant Clergymen who would gludly
min'tMeno the spiritual needs of their fellow
believers, if that were allowed ; b it it is not.
Let those Proieslunis hire, or buyi or even,
build", a. suitable edifice and proceed ih rein,
evoii in a language wholly .unintelligible to
the Roman people, to worship God and
learn His will according to their own con
victions bf Truth and Duty, and tho Pope's
police n nd soldiers would be down upon them
directly, to break up their meeting, and
probably convey its leading members to pris
on. Is this 'Civil and Religious Liberty V
The Archbishop plaint v deems it consist-
eftt with that kind of it whereof he is "a
f . friend," nnd which tie considers a great deal
, -- better than ours. The two kinds certainly
t are in no danger of being confounded
4' When the Archbishop speaks of the Pope's
1 being required to ''encourage opposition to
H that Religion," (the Catholic,) he combats
t omwhinf which we never propounded.
- We desire bun neither to "encourage n r
i iicourago the religion of men whose faiths
V-- (differ from nis own, but 10 let them alone,
, Wc cannot see what he rightfully has to do
1 i wjih them, Pontiff, his legitimate rule
is over Catholics, not unbelievers. Asteiii
T. 1 1 porul Prince, liis power is over the bodies
of men, not their soul,. In tiiher capacity,
, i. his suppression of Protestant worship by
force seems to us a gross and baneful usur
' pstion.
HI. We do not base the right of ull men
to Bo'igious Freedom on any such frail
foundation as the toleration of Catholics by
Protestants.- Protea ui nis have often perse
cmed.'and in somu countries' Hill persocute
fur Faith's sske, not only Catholics but each
uiner.1 " Our position assumes that all Pefse
million it wrong, whether perpetrated ',' by
Catholics or Protestants ; and that no in
stance of it is to bo justified by ever so many
tuners. . If every Protestant country were
intoUrant, persecution would be no less
wrong in Catholics than ll now is; and if
. every (Juholic date were persecuting we
should nevertheless insist, oil the absolute

V. We certainly have not intended to
uut suspicion on the Archbishop's loyalty
as a citizen of the Unitod Stutes. We ac
cept without question his own assurances on
this head. That he fully believi-s the Re
publican form of Government bestor the
United Stales, we need no assur nice but
his own, Yd ho does seem to us not 10
accept and plant himself on those principles
which lie at the basj of Republican insiitti
tions. To .'.eo a Republic based on Univer
sal Suffrage overthrown bv Foreign bayonets
and a despotism established it its sieud ex
ciu s no indignation or abhorrence on bis
part. Of course, we cannot sue how he
coud assent to the great truths embodied in
the immortal Preamble to our Declaration of
independence concerning the- inalienable
rights of all men. That his Republicanism,
liku his devotion to Civil and Religious Lib
erty, is preferable to ours in the eyes of
thusii who agree with him, we do not dis
pute; we mean no offense when we soy that
they differ from ours, and that we could not
his prlli8e8. '. & .
VI. We are quite willing to leave to Time
the decision between our view uf the char
acter and career of Kossuth and that of the
Archbishop, and we feel so fortified in our
conviction trial we let the Archbishop s
sintemeiu of the case pass without remark.
Wo leel confident that almost any of us
have inoro reuson to dread being written
down a 'humbug' by Histor than Louis
Kossuth.
VII. We do not hold the Archbishop ac
countable for everything that appears in The
b ree man $ Journal. We accept his own
explanation on that point. But that Jjur-
nal speaks 111 the name of Catholics and
Catholicity, and it is bitter and unsparing in
its warfare on the adversaries or Despotism
in Europe and on the supporters of the
Common School system here. In an article
opposing our Free School iuw last year, the
bdttor said of its prospective repeal : , ,
"It will not do away with the iniquitous and
prodigal system of free schools, as now by law
established, in this City. But it will at leastgive
us hope that if the people of the State shall be
delivered from this odious tax, "the people of this
City will soon follow in demanding , freedom
from schools that are a moral nuisance, and have
no kind of claim on the confidence of the pub
lic,-- wc, ac.
Now we did think that, as this 'Freeman's
Journni' is openly advenised as 'the' organ of
Archbishop Hughes, and weekly speaks as
wuh authority, in behalf of Catholic Fuitii
and Principles, it behoved the Archbishop
to let the publie know how fiir its potent par
tisanship of Nicholas, Meiternich and Ha
nau in Lurope and Its hostility to Common
Schools here, met his approbation. Was
this unreasonable I
VIII. The Archbishop is an advocate not
only of Civil and Religious Liberty but of
Universal Education, though in neither case
after our pattern. ' Ue would have Religion
form a part of every child's education.
Very good we concur in that view. But it
is one tiling to assume that each child should
be taught Religion, and quite another to
maintain that Religious dogmas should be
taught in common schools. We desire and
intend that our own children shall bd taught
ue.igton; we do not desire that it shall be
taught them in Common Shools. For this
weshall take them to Church, to Sunday
School i'td Bible Class,'or wherever else tli'iy
may be taught by those who we brieve wi I
teach them Divine Truth in its purity; while
for the acquisition of Reading, Writing.
Arithmetic, &c, we shull send them to
Common or secular Schools. Why is not
this distinction a natural and just one ? How
can a man 60 wise as the Archbishop speak
of our Common School System as "not coi
.cutated to meet thu requirements which
Catholic parents, al least, are bound to fill-
' fill toward their Catholic offspring V Why
Rev. Sir I it never pretended to do any such
thing." Yoir mlght as well objjet that it does
not wash, dress and Vaccinate the in. You
and your Clergy are expected, by 'CatholicJ
parents, and they think divinely commis
sioned, - to teach their children Religion
Why should you find fuult with the Schools
for their own proper work and not atteinp
ting yours 1 -How, ihen, can you : usj . such
language as tins I
"It may suit other denominations to hare their
children brought up without any admixture of
Religious teaching in their education, but it does
not suit us." . .
, No, Sir 1 It does not suit 'other denom
inations' to have their children "reared In
ignorance of God ind His laws, and you

The Archbishop would socin to prefer
that V-' ''' " ' " ; 1
the religious' influences of the least' desirable
sect of professing Christians in the land should
be put in the Common Schools, than that all Chris
tianity, under the pretence of excluding sectari
anism, should be eliminated." , . .: j
As wa underst .nd the matter,: the Arch
bishop's course has not been consistent witli
ihis expression of preference, Twelve, or
fifteen yeurs agu, our Common Schools were
very nearly on th 1 basis here suggested, by
tho Archbishop. The Bible (King Jam a's
Version) was regularly read in tt.em, and
ertatn not very tangible but none thd less
real 'religous influences", were prevalent
therein, which to our mind seemed those of
Orthodox . Protestantism. Bishop. Hughes
led a formidable crusade againM those "in
fluences," and we were among bis followers
in the onset. . We thought, then, and still
think, thai those "rtligious influeno s" wore
unjust 10 Cathoitcs and to what are t rmeJ
Liberal Christians, as well as unbelievers in
Revelation. We fought th 'in together un
til the Publio School Monopoly was over
thrown, tho Ward School system established
whereof the basis (as wu understood and
still unierstand) was the non-i iculcution of
any dogmatic theology whatever. We can
not be misiak- n in atlirtning thai Bishop
Hughes saw the bill that was passed beforo
it was submitted to the Legislature, and that
it recived his approbation not as tho meas
ure tie would choose 10 have, but ns deci
dedly prsfered by him to the system it was
intended to supplant. It certainly had the
support in both Houses of those who deemed
the Catholic grievances real and were anx
ious 10 remove thern. , And now we under-
sijjiihrcjjjjifihop to maintain in sub- ,
stance thai trie now or Ward School system
established, by the act of , J 842 is-decidedly
more objectionable in his view than thai o-
ver which it triumphed I lfthis be the fact,
we marvel that his influence was not thrown
against iha change when made rather than
in its favor. We are still willing to advo
cate any admissable change which bids fuir
secure a fuller attendance of Catholic chil
dren and a heartier cooperat on of their
Clergy, but our hopes of rendering any prac
ticable Common School system acceptable
to the Archbishop , are not so sanguine as
they have boon. : v
IX. We assure the Archbishop that,
however strops'y we may be obliged to dis
sent from some of his opioions, we huve no
thought ofcensuring him for thoir utterance
On thu contrary, wo wish he would mora
Irequuntly communicate .with the public on
the important themes whereon we have the
misfortune to differ from him ; we would
have all conflicting opinions on such grave
topics thoroughly sunned and ventilated ;
and wuussure him that ho need not tuke the
trouble of sending his strictures by The Tri
bune office to Wull-streci in order to secure
their publicity. . We stand at all times ready
10 render hospitality to his convictions and
reasons for our own. H. a.
, KOSSUTH AND TUB BIBL13.
Al Lundon, Kossuth was presented witli
a large German Bible, by Mr. Charles Reed,
on beiiatf of a number of British ladies.
On rccoivinj it hi siid:
"I thank you. I take ii for no merit of
my life that I am a religious man; not for
any merit of mine, bui because it is a ne
cessity to every honest and thinking man;
and because it is the mosf rich and fruitful

ings which lead to happiness in ihis world
and bliss in the world to come. I shall val
ue it because I take religion to be tho most
rich source of that consolation which' I have
wunied so often in, my life. Boing a reli
gious man, and because re'igious, as well as
an enemy to superstition, intolerance, nna

M. Kossuth here alluded to the interesting
fact that at Winchester a working man came up
to the carriage door and presented a Hible to
Madame Kossuth, aud disappeared so rapidly that
she could neither recognize, the honest donor or
tender any acknowledgment.

DRESS OF TUB WOME.f OF LIMA.
The dress of the women of Lima is as
singular as ii is graceful. The skirt, which
is generally of black silk or satin, and made
very full, is gathered in ihe waist at the
buck in innumerable plaits, which there act
the part of a "bustle." To tho waistband
behirjd is attached the nianto, asorl of hood,
made of a fabric something like thin black
crape. This hood is just large enough to
come over the head, tuke in ihe lefi shoul
der arm, and a portion of the right shoul
der; the left arm is carried across the body
and supportr the tight elbow, while the right
bond draws the from of iho veil, or manto,
tiglit'y over the fuce, so as to leave only one
eye , exposed., And those one eyes! oh,
dear I such lurge, coul black, lustrous, beau
tiful eyes would require a ship-load of poets
to dcsciibo them properly. . And then the
hands and feet nf those beautiful Limenas
are delicately small, almost to a fault.
Their figures ore ihe most graceful imagina
ble ( not having yet taken to those accursed
suicidal, affairs, stays), and a queen might
onvy their walk.. In addition to these things
the Limcna never considers herself dressed
unless she has flesh colored silk Blockings
and white satin shoes: und. those extrava
gances may well be indulged in a town such
as this, where no mud ot dirt, except around
the fountains or near ihe water courses,, is
ever seen. Whutev'er may be the rank of
the fair, or raihor ihe dark ono for they ure
all rather dark she Will huve the aforesaid
shoes and stockings, or none at ull. I have
seen a woman going to mass with a shirt
and manto in rags; but she had, neverthc
less! her white satin shoes and flesh-colored
stockings, and stepped, or rather glided,
along, as gracefully as the rest. In fuel,
ihe women old and young, rich and poor,
glido along with the eloquence of. fairies.
Many a gay Lothario has followed iho steps
of a woman, thinking, from her walk and
figure, that sho must bo a fiouri nt least, and
after a lung fugging wulk through ull manner
of streets, under a blitzing sun, has seen his
charmer turn into perhaps eouie little' dirty
houso, where, releasing her manto, she dis
closed her face, and the horrified swain dis
covered he had been , following a woilian

ihe famous Tir Federal, or national stiooi-ing-mutch.'
Our host reckoned the stran-
ccrs at thirty thousand. Thu number of

targets was fifty-fm ; and the crack of many
rifles at once was heard during some hours
more 'than a week. ' Perhaps ten thousand
shots were made in a day. I he prizes
amounted to about thirty-five thousand dol

main prize was a bag of California gold. It
was carried by a watch-maker, near Noufchu

put twenty bulls In or near ihe contre thu
first day. An American, known to ine,
lodged a very good specimen of western
skill. The town was alive; a panorama of
Swiss people, dfess, and manners. Five
thousand could sit under one roof at dinner,
in a beautiful modern building, erected in
full view of Mount Blanc; the actual number
dining on one day was three thousand. As
steamboats came in with fresh deputations,
there were welcomes, speeches, vin d'hon

plainly moved -all Switzerland. Among this
multitude, I saw only one or two porons in

PiCKLtNO MBAT.--Prof. -Refiensque , de
nounces tho use of saltpeter in brine inten

(or food. That part of sultpeter which, is
absorbed by the meat, he says, is nitric acid
or aquafortis, a deadly poison. Animal flesh
previous to the addition 01 pickle, consists
of gelatinous and fibrous substances, the
former only possessing a nutritious virtue;
the gelatine is destroyed by the chemical
action of salt and saltpeter, and. as the pro
fessor remarks, the meat becomes as differ
ent a substance from what it should be, . as
leather is from the raw hide before it is sub
jected to the process of tanning. He ascri

cipally upon salted meat such as scurvy,
soro gums, decayed teeth, ulcers, &c, and
advised a total abandonment ol the use ol
saltpetre in the making of pickle for beef,
pork, &c, the best substitute lor wmciv is,
he says, sugar, a small quantity rendering
iho meat sweeter, more wholesome, and c
qually as durable,
