REV. FATHER TR ECY.-We have had the
pleasure of a call from Father Tracy, pastor
at Huntsville, Ala. Father Trecy's parish
was greatly impoverished by the results of
the war, during the course of which its
church was demolikhed by vandals calling
themselves soldiers, who swept over that
portion of the State, on a raid.
Father Trecy has a letter from Right
Rev. Bishop Quinlan, commendingand urg
ing most earnestly the enterprise in which
he is now engaged-that of soliciting aid
for the restoration of religious worship in
Huntsville. The consent of our diocesan
authorities has been also obtained, and
Father Trecy will probably soon present
his claims before some of the more charita
bly inclined of our readers.

Episcopal SIIght of Hon& "
It must not be supposed that the fascina
ting art of jugglery is confined to those
brilliant "professors" who eat burning
coals, swallow swords, and draw intermin
able lengths of ribbon from their, throats.
There o s an intellectual hocus-poet -also,
whereby a not too exacting public is easily
mystified, and a desired.conclusion arrived
at by logical dexterity almost as satisfacto=
rily as if ,y logical fairness.
The most scientific instance of thi "itel
lectual slight of hand presented he won
der of this generation, is p r ably that fur
nished as the chef d'w " e-the substantial
fruit-of the rec Episcopalian General
Convention d in New York. It is em
bodied i e so-called pastoral letter of the
liHo of Bishops.
The great Slfieulty with Episcopalianism
is the old fastioned one of trying to carry
water on both shoulders. It wants to be
both Catholic and Protestant-Catholic,
as claiming that there is authority in the
Church; Protestant, as denying it. Cathld
lics and Protestants agree on the following
propositions : Either theChurch has author
ity, or it has not; either there is a right of
private interpretation of the Scriptures, or
there is nct; either the Church is infallible,
or it is not. The broad common sense of
mankind admits these propositions as self
evident. Episcopalianism denies them all.
It insists there is a middle ground be
t.;een these opposite terms and it essays to
comprlomise on that ground. Its existence
is based on the pretension that contradict
ory terms can be reconciled. It is evident
that the ordinary human mind can never
follow the ingenious calculations necessary
to such a conclusion, and so the difficult
points must be dexterously kept out of
sight. Is that not splendidly-done in the
following bold dash with which the above
mentioned pastoral letter opens t .
Brethren, Belored in the Lord: The Incarnate
Goil hath conunmitted to fallible men that great
commission wherewith He came into the world
from the Father who sent Him. --Bii to His
ministers, thus weak and subject'to error, He
hath given His holy and infallible word, that
without peril of misleading His flock, we may
instruc- them, with all authority, by speaking
always according to the Scriptures.
The last sentence is the gem. It is the
great literary triumph of human history so
far, where intellectual oil and water are
combined, ice and fire amalgamated, light
and darkness made to co-exist. The former
limb of the sentence claims infallibility with
" all authority ;" the second repudiates the
claim with calm, in fact, ironical disdain.
Luther and the Apostles are introduced to
one another. As successors of the Apostles,
the silken-robed bishops claim that " with
out peril of m isleading His flock, we may in
struct them with all authority.! Just here
Luther breaks in with a sneer, and spoils
all by adding, " if we speak always ac
cording to the Scriptures."
Oh, that lovely " If!" and to think that
it is not even expressed, but neatly evaded
with the turn "by speaking." There is
where the slight of hand comes in.
Just as the weary Christian, sick of his
own errors, and yearning for some certain
ty of truth, thinks that now, at- last, he has
found an authority that "may instruct him
without peril of misleading," he' is
discouraged with the proviso that their in
struction rlust be "according to the Scrip
tures." Alas, the same uncertainty still!
Who is to tell him whether that instruction
is according to the Scriptures
This is like amending an elaborate bill
by striking ouit the. enacting clausein a
proviso. The pious Episcopalian is inysti
tied, honwever, by the proceedin liHe can
not conceive that so labored a manifesto
should actually mean nothilng, and there
fore consoles himself with l te hylpotlhesis
that the reverend pastors do, claim sonme
If they speak accord i ng to the Sc ri pt ires!
Truly, not -very Ihazardlous plromisec tiat.
Any man, or body of mien on eart:l cI:uld
say the same thing. If they alwnay.s slak
according to -the Scliiprtllur, they cert~l.i.ly
will not lead any oni astray. Such an as

According to announceinent, ron. T. J.
Semmes lectured at St. Alphonsus'. Hall
last Monday evening, on 'Reason and Au
thority." As was- anticipated, the effort
was a masterly one, not merely elSleidating
,the subject in its philosophical bbaridgs,
but illustrating many of the positions with
I such felicitous comparisons, such poetic im
agery, and such happy allusions, thaf th
nterruptions of applause were very 'fre
.Thoughthe audience was not aplarge as
the merits of the occasion might reasonably
I have warranted, we otberved that it em
I braced some of the most intelligent of our
fellow-citizens, attracted, doubtless, by the
high expectations they had based upon the
abilities of the lecturer. We were happy
to perceive, as the lecture advanced, that
they had no cause of disappointment.
S_-It wold be unnecessary, at thislate date,
and after the synopsis published in the daily
papers, for us to attempt an analysis of the
discourse. We will only call attention to
the fact now demonstrated, that ability for
successful lectures exists in on midst. As
f uncultivated as is public tastein New Or
leans, in the field of lectures, it is also evi
dent that a good audience can be assembled
r on such occasions, and by proper efforts, a
successful course of such entertainments
might be inaugurated, capable of producing
most beneficial results.
Doubtless as public .interest becomes
awakened, audiences would greatly aug
ment, and a growing taste for intellectual
entertainment- would chasten apd circum
scribe the passion for ,amusement which
now-a-days tends so much to materialism
and sensuousness. There are enjoyments
of which the soul is fully capable, far supe
rior to the attractions of mock-pageantry
inma theatre, of indecency in the ballet, and
of half-suppressed libertinism, in the ball
room. Eloquence and po y
far more exquisite, as well as more refined,
than those allurements of passion which
must be rejected. Besides which, they
leave behind no reproaches of a spirit de
graded to the level of the animal.
There, are many subjects, philosophical I
and historical; points along the line of con
tract between the church and the State, be
tween religion and science; misreprdsenta
tions of a Christianity to be denounced and
triumphs to be proclaimed, which afford an
ample and legitimate field to the lecturer,
and could be made most interesting and in
struetive to.the public. -An experiment in
this line might indeed result in failure, but
an any-rater-it--would be exploring a field
that holds forth good premises.
St. Peter's Church.-Dedlcatlon of a New
-Last Sunday, 22d inst., the beautiful new
Altar built by order of the indefatigable
pastor, Rev. C. Moynihan, was dedicated
to Almighty God by the celebration of a
solemn High Mass. The dedication sermon i
was preached by the Rev. Jeremiah Moyni
han, pastor of St.John-theBaptist's-Church,
and was one of his very best efforts. He
showed, from Holy Scripture, that the true
God was always worshiped before an altar, I
and that all true worshipers of the one living
God and his only Son, our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ, always had, and always will I
have, a material altar on which they will
continue to offer, from the rising to the set
ting of the sun, the Lamb of God slain from I
the foundation of the world for the sins of
men. The United Laborers' Association, t
headed by theirPresident, Mr. Win. Crotty,
and consisting of several hundred of the t
most respected of the congregation of St. t
Peter's, also the St. Joseph's--or we believe
the full name is the Catholic Christian Be- C
nevolent Association' of Algiers-headed by
their worthy President, T. Herlihy, made f
a fine appearance with their banners and
music. The Church was crowded to its ut- r
most capacity, and most of the regular 1
members of the congregation had to give up I
their pews to accommodate the strangers
present. Altogether, it was a day that will -t
long Ie renmembered by the go-ahead con- I
gregation of St. Peter's.

It is a pity that the Church of England;
as tilpresented in America, could not con
'trdl the doctrine and practice of its sister
establishment in Ireland. Recently, aigreat
triennial convention of that religious body
has. been held in New York, and in the
pastoral.pf its house of Bishops we find the
admission clearly and neatly made, that
they wio pieach the Gospel should live
This is pretty severe on their Irish co
ecolesiastics. When that doctrine was first
enunciated, there were but few who preach
ed and few who believed the Gospel. It
meant that they who believed ought to
support those who instructed them. It
never meant that those who did not receive
the Gospel ought-to support.its preachers,
nor that those preachers had an inherent
right to tax the whole world of unbelief for
tI&e sustenance of the saints, and only
awaited a good opportunity of enforcing
that right at the point of the bayonet, or
under the auctioneer's hammer.
The Irish Episcopalian ecclesiastics, like
their brethren of this country, ought to be
satisfied to "live by the Gospel," and not
covet the lucre wrested from a hatred inca
pable of resistance. It is the Gospel of
love, not the Gospel of force, by which
they ought to live. To the extent that
they preach, they are entitled to support,
supposing them authorized to preach.
Froni those who hear them and listen to
them, they ought to require contribution,
not from those to whom they do not preach*
It may be said- that a Church-of-England
priest in Ireland, who has but his clerk for
a congregation, does as much labor and
shows as much zeal in preaching to that
one man as though a crowded audience
were present. In getting his salary, he,
therefore, merely gets what he has earned,
and so really lives by the Gospel.
--The fallacy here consists in the fact that
he does not live by the Gospel only, but by
that, mixed up with! government patron
age. It is evident that if he relied upon
the Gospel alone, without any understand
ing with Queen Victoria, his missionary
services to the clerk would. not long keep
up the parsonage. If, indeed, the govern
ment, in giving him a salary, or in forcing
its subjects. of a certain locality to give
him one, had nothing whatever in view but
the propagation of the Gospel, it might
still be considered by many that he lived
by the Gospel. But in. point of fact gov
ernmentsin subsidizing priests, always have
objects of State in view, and to that extent
the priest is a politician; to that extent he
loes not live by the Gospel, but by his ca
pacity of emissary, pioneer, or scourge.
Let, then, further missionary labors of
our liberal English Church, in America, be
directed -to the enlightenment of the be
nighted Irish Episcopalians on this point.
Let that misguided body be brought back to
primeval doctrine in this essential par
ticular, and then, on with the campaign
against Rome in true apostolic simplicity.

A few years of Southern sun, in the streets

; Lecture by Right Rev. Bishop Eider*
x- On Sunday next, Decembe6fth, a lecture
ir will be delivered by the Right Rev. Wm
t H. Elder, Bishop of Natchez, Miss., in 8t.
y Theresa's Church, eorner' Cmp and Erato
6 streets, at seveii o'clock, aP . The subject,
10 we understand, is to .b the "life and
4t Times_9f. Bishoa Plunkelt," who sufered
'e martyrdom and was put to a cruer death
dging'the reign of CarlIes II.
- The lecture is to be given for the benefit
t of St. Theresa's Conference, Society of 8t.
º- Vincent of Paul--in other words, for the
It poor of the city, .qf4 whom there are many
o now suffering for food, fuel and raiment.
It Knowing the Right Rev.egentleman's abil
'e ity as an orator, we can safely promise the
s, audience a litera.y treat ; and from his
it character as a scholar, his studies, habits
ir and profound erudition, we feel assured
y the lecture will be both agreeable, pleasing
g and interesting to all classesof the communi
ir ty, and instructive to the studept of history.
The subject, "Life and Times of Bishop
e Plunkett," is of itself well calculated to
e arouse feelings of the deepest and most in
t tense interest; one,, pyrhaps, that might be
calculated to remove the screen and exhib
if it to the world the bitter intolerance of the
h past; but when treated by a gentleman of
it such refined taste and delicate sensibility
t, as the Ritght Rev. Bishop Elder, we feel as
sured that nothing will be said' that could
o cause the most sensitive to take offense.
, The subject is one which will enable the
i* impartial reader to form a just estimate of
d the times in which we live, and surely a
r flattering one, for the raick and gibbet and
d instruments of torture are done away, and
t it is to be hoped forever; more christian
e charity and respect for the opinions of
', others and mutual forbearance prevail
I, now than in the intolerant days of Charles
II. The object for which the lecture is to
t be delivered is one which cannot fail to bb
9 popular with the inhabitants of NewwOr
leans. A people proverbially -generous
n cannot fail to appreciate the labors and ex
ertions of a body of men such as the Soci
P ety of St. Vincent of Paul.
P Of this the Society has already substan
tial evidence. There is scarcely a week since
3 the Society has been instituted that they
e have not received donations, and not in
one single instance did the donors wish
their names to be made known. This is
1 not, indeed, Pharisaical charity, given at
the sound of the trumpet, but in accordance
with the maxiums of the Gospel: "Let not
thy left hand know what thy right hand
doeth." The members of this Society have
no earthly motives in view now but to re
lieve the members of Christ Jesus in the
persons of the poor. "I was hungry, and
you gave me not to eat; I was thirsty, nm-u
you gave me not to drink; I was naked,
and you clothed me not," cannot be said of
them, for they seek out the poor, the needy
and the naked to provide them with food
and raiment, without distinction of race or
religion. And if the cup of cold water
will not pass unrewarded, how great must
be the rewUrd in store for these men t
Admission to the lecture will be free, as
the gentlemen of the Society feel confident
that they will not be disapipointed in the
high estimation which they have placed on
the liberality of the people, when the col
lection is taken up.
TUnRNES' ILtaL..-Passing up Lafayette
street, we were attracted by the substan
tial, extensive and elegant appearance of
the building, now fast approaching comple
tion, on the corner of .)ryades and Lafay
ette streets. On stepping over to look into
it, we were met by our respected friend,
John Kerwin, Esq., who is the contractor
for the mason work.
This building, which will be a great or
nament to this part of -the city, has a front
of three stories on Dryades street, and, in
the rear extending on Lafayette street, it
is two stories; each, 25 feet 8 inches in
height, contains a spacious Hall. The
lower story, intended as a Gymnasium for
the ICImembiers to exercise illn, is entered by a
large door on Lafiayetto street; the upper
one is intended for balls and other assem
blies, and i, entered from Dryades street.
This Hall, with its appendages, will be one
of the Ilmost complllcte in the city for the pur
