RoME, June 25th.-The ,hbilee.-All the c
Roman nobility returned to Rome to cele- of
brate the Pope's Jubilee, and in the depu- se
tation composed of the active members of fe
the Pious Union of Catholio Women they
bore their part nobly. What the Gentle- Is
!nen's Society for Catholic Interests is to w
the men this Union for Pious Works is to bt
the women' of Rome, and His Holiness ci
showed his appreciation of their import- tr
ance by receiving them immediately after hi
the gentlemen's audience. They assem- P
sembled in the Sala Ducale,~Which was as re
full as ever it could hold and numbered se
over 800 of the noblest and worthiest ladies pp
of Rome. Their address was read by the P
Marchesa Donna Chiara Antici Mattei, nee hi
Princess Altieri. It was very beautiful, m
and was followed, as is usual on solemn of
presentations in Rome, by a piece of poetry H
suitable to the occasion, composed and re- ol
cited by the Countess Gualanda. They la
laid at His feet a large sum money as their hi
offering on this happy occasion, and to dif- T
tfuse more general joy, they bestowed mar- sc
riame portions on the different parishes for g
which the president of each committee e:
drew, and which will be bestowed on the al
virtuous girls frequenting the Catechism F
classes which are under their care. They di
Sloaassigned a number of premiums and a m
general feast for all the children in the a
schools which are under their patronage.
The -Marchesa Antic Mattel sent, in her 8(
own name, the thanks of those 800 Roman A
ladies, but reptesenting many more, to the al
Archbishop of Westminster for transmis- Is
sion to her Majesty for her telegram to Ii
their beloved Sovereign and Pontiff. On A
the morning of the 15th, at half-past seven fx
O'clock, this same society, to the nu L
f 1000, assembled in the Basilica of
Mary Major, and, after some prayers, form
id into a procession, and, singing the Lit- R
nies, proceeded to visit Santa Croce in si
ernualemme, thence to St. John Lateran, c1
here, after hearing Mass and a sermon, p
tey all received Holy Communion for the e
oly Father and His intentions. a
i There was hardly any good Roman who d
did not fast one day preparatory to the
Jubilee, to prepare themselves more wor- I
thily to implore God's blessing on Pins IX. I
In many of the churches where the work- a
ing people, unable under the new regime to d
count on even half a holiday to go and v
pray, the Blessed Sacrament was especially a
exposed at hours to suit their convenience, F
and it was an edifying sight to see at dawn a
of day and late in the evening the tired ti
workmen and poor women praying fervent- ti
ly for the good Pontiff, the loss of whose a
paternal rule they so bitterly deplore, and
the crowds were even greater at these s
hours than on the others. There were o
grand Triduums celebrated in several a
churches: that in St. Peter's deserves par- I
ticular mention, both from the crowds at- c
tenuing it, the respectability of the congre- t
gation, and the splendor with which it was s
got up. The ceremonies of thanksgiving a
commenced at 6 o'clock on th evening of 2
Sthe 1Gth with a grand "Te Den " at St. t
John Lateran, at which $]nediftion of the s
Blessed Sacrament was gben. The church
was as full as ever it could hold; and a I
;more devout and recollected congregation, I
with the exception of a few " liberators" I
who went on purpose either to make a rows
or disturb the congregation, never assem
bled under any roof.
Under the pretence of being exercised, I
soldiers were kept in the neighboring pia
za, and a large guard of police, etc., were 4
in attendance around the church, so that
the rowdies thought it better to be quiet.
This was a magnificent demonstration. 1
' here were 500 canrises drawn up await
ing their owners in the Piaa,whle, for i
the first time since the 20th of September i
the cabmen said they "made some money
and the long double file of again

t Next morning, the 17th, the I
Feast, the dsy when te Pope was pro
claimed, and for the first time blessed the
Roman from the belcony of his now forci
bly ezpeoprlated Quirinal Palace, the Mass
took place at St. Peter's. It was spleadli.
A piece of muae especialy composed in
honor of his Holiness's Jubilee, and pre
sented to Him with their address by the
maestri of the Capelle. was performed here,
sand in all the other churches to-day. One
could only wonder where the people came
from. To see them pouring out of the
church and filling the now desolate Plazas
was a refreshing sight. On the 18th there

Swas worthy the Jesuits, and this is saying
enough. The jrectors of the foreign col
leges have got up a Triduum at their own
expense at St. Igusaio in honor of the Holy
Father, and, in fine, if I went on for a V
week I would hardly exhanst all religious so

Deputations, Addresses and Presents.- "
Their Eminences, the members of the Sa- Ti
cred College were the first to pay the visit t
of congratulation to the Holy Father, pro
senting Him, at the same time, with an of
fering of 30,000 lire. •
No less than 1000 messages of congrata- o
lation reached his Holiness, notably among a
which was one from Thiers. All the mem
Shbers of the Bourbon family sent their feli- ad
citations. His Majesty the Emperor of Aus
tria senta special envoy nm the person of be
his Grand Chambeilain, his ighness
Prince Constantine Hohenlohe, who was
received in a private audience, and pre
sented an autogph letter from the Em
peror to His Holiness. Next day this
Prince attended the Holy Father's Mass in TI
his private chapel, and received Holy Com
munion from His hands; as did also the
other personages who had come to his W
Holiness. His Royal Highness Don Miguel to
of Braganza had an audience to congratu
late the Holy Father. To him succeeded an
his Berene Highness the Prince d'Isemberg. he
The Queen of Sweden, and almost all the at
sovereign princes of Europe, sent their he
good wishes. To add insult to injury, the th
excommunicated King of Italy sent Gener
at Bertole Viale to oongratultq the Holy c
Father, but his good wfes were politely 8
declined. No salmittaOes.4 Tus IX for

The Germant ticn numbered over

I Among the pri many vicars-gener- E
I al, canons, and ir, and among the
Slaity were the of Lowenstein and th
Isemberg, w 'ed to one of the ot

was represented, and sent r
the deputations that have come to th
Rome the German ones have had the most of
t success, because they are made up of all
, classes. In them there are nobles, canons U
priests, princesses, peasants, farmers, and i
a even messengers, and daily working men,
and it is quite delightful to hear of their c
) doings and fervor. th
B In the evening of the 16th, at the very Al
Shour when His Holiness was elected Pope,
He received the deputations from Naples
and Sicily, presented by his Eminence Car- le
B dinal Riario Sforza; they presented Him
I with the gestatorial chair and two flabelli,
I and from Naples 55,000 francs in gold.
, From Sicily also a larger sum. There were
a also numerous other presentations of par
I ties bearing messages. The members of Al
the Pontifical Court presented an address
a of congratulation and a beautiful present 8S
I a gold temple ornamented with precious T
e stones, and containing a relic of the Prince vi
e of the Apostles. The Camerieri Sereti A
also gave a siphon. Then glorious little tc
- Holland came forward with the magnifi- t
cent donation of £25,000 sterling in gold; ci
this after having already presented hand- w
a somely to His Holiness on the 12th of April, ti
g and the expense of taking home all their oi
if Zouaves and providing comfortably for d
b. their wounded ! There was a large and re- Ii
e spectable deputation presided over by ,w
h Count Von Waal. All honor to the good v
a Dutch. The Noble Guard offered to His ri
i, Holiness a valuable ring, presented by the Z
" Duke of Castel-Vecchio, their commandant, e
w and Prince Viano. a
i- Finally in the Consistorial Hall the Ro- tl
man nobility presented to the Holy Father Ii
i, the gold medal they had expressly coined r
r- in honor of this glorious occasion and 1000 b
re of the same in silver. 5
It The Belgian deputation have given not
t. only the tiara, but there were so many val- i
a. usble jewels over and above what were 1
I- necessary sent in, that they have brought
rt a box of precious stones to his Holiness,
rr and also an album, one page of wheih con
' tains bank notes and the other side
s_ names. Many private individuals ha
n sent large sums, and the sum of me
I collected by the Ulita Oatolea is v
e- large; in one fortnight in Turin
i 30000 flanes were given.
-I The editor of the egister collected an
sI sent to the Holy Father a box of jewels.

he three days n_ 1200. From the Diocese
as of Breelan the Hly Father received the
ire gift of £4000. Thirty-three cases of pres
It ents were also reeived from Turin. The
ng Dutch address, spoken-of above, bore six
ol- hundred thousand signatures.
wn Besides thejewels Belgium sent £12,000.
ly Malines alone having contributed £6000.
Venetia sent a deputation of fourteen per- a
sons, bringing 60,000 francs and a volumed i
with 150,000 signatures. All the smaller v
towns of Italy sent large subscriptions and IM
volumes with thousands of signatures. t
The Tyrolese deputation numbered 100, B
many of whom were peasants, wearing ti
their picturesque national contume. U
From Spain, twenty of the noblest and to
best citizens came, headed by the Bishop St
of Avila, and bearing an offering of £10,000 &
and-many jewels, among which was a pic- w
torial cross of diamonds, worth £1712, the ti
gift of a lady of Seville. To this must be hi
added about £4000 worth of precious tl
articles, which have been left in Madrid to Il
be raffled for, the proceeds to be sent to the "
Poolnd gave £4000. The French dele- t
gation numbered 300. On the 23d the Irish at
delegation, numbering 200, was received. di
Their address was read by the worthy headof ti
the noble old Catholic family De la Poer of .7
Gurteen, M. P. and D. L. for the county of a
Waterford. Count de ]a Poeer laid at the
fect of His Holiness the address and signa
tures, bound in a handsome volume, and tl
an offering for the Peter's Pence, to which w
he had himself handsomely contributed. II
The Pope made a nice speech, after which tl
all the ladies were admitted to kiss His 21
hand and one of them, knowing how fond ft
the Holy Father is of the poor, and all that o0
comes from them, presented Him with four a1
eggs sent by a poor Irish widow, for His it
Jubilee. Te Holy Father was perfectly 0
enchanted, and said, "Four eggs, four w
eggs-what an appropriate gift! This is a tl
fast day, an i I will have them made into a re
fritter for My dinner; I'll eat them;" and ci
again and agaid He returned to His eggs. w
Every one saw that the dear Holy Father p
thought more of the widow's mite, coming a
from her heart, than of all the grand gifts w
others out of their superfluity will never T
miss. When will people realize that to n
reach Pins IX. it is not necessary to be a
noble or rich t Among the donations to ti
the Holy Father on this occasion was one ri
of £10 in gold, the gift of a "Poor Irish tI
Servant." tl
On the 21st the deputation from the tl
United States was received. Their address h
was read by the Vicar General of the Dio- p
cese of Natchez. n
Among the particular audiences granted ti
this week was one to Miss Edes, an a
American resident, much and deservedly ti
esteemed here, who offered Him £800, col- fi
lected for the occasion of His Jubilee by a

The curriculum of the year's studies at b
1 St. Colman's College, Fermoy, closed on
I Tuesday with a public examination in the
various classes and a distribution of prizes.
I And if we have occasion from time to time
to mark with pleasure, as the best hope of p
the country, the intellectual activity and J
educational progress that are now every- a
- where being exhibited. Tuesday's exhibi- p
tion at St. Colman's brought fully home to a
r our minds the great work that is being I
r done in our midst for the Catholic youth of I
Ireland. The spacious balls were thronged c
S.with some of the elite of the country, and a
I visitors from distant parts including seve- a
as ral old distinguished pupilE of the College. 7
s The walls were adorned with appropriate I
, emblems and mottoes-specimens of fine
art culture were in abundance-but better i
than all, the intellectual culture and train- I
r ing of the alumni were evidenced by the I
d really splendid answering, the fine manly
0 bearing and general appearance of the I
students. St. Colman's is certainly keeping i
t pace with the onward march of education I
- In d. It may be said to be in vain. I
e W bound also to remark that the I
it of the venerable and patriotic 4

nee from the fete on the last two I
we had to regret, added addi
to the suaoess of the day's
s. The visitors began to arrive

thoreghout were most satisfactory, after b
which his Lordship distributed the prizes ft
tO the happy young victors. After the dis
tribution his Lordship delivered a magni- a
Bsent address, taking as his text an emblem A
which he said struck his eye upon entering a
the hall-"Faith and Fatherland." After C
having partaken of a sumptuous dinner, sa
the visitors repaired to the theatre, where y
they witnessed the celebrated play of a
"Pizarro," after which came the well- C
known farce, "His Last Legs." Thus were i,
the day's proceeding brought to a close, ti
and we must congratulate the body of c
directors upon the success that crowned a
the labors of the year.-Cork Examiner, tI

Fifteen men, charged with complicity in
the raid on the militia barracks at Mallow, i
were brought up for examination before e
M, Coote, R. M., and Mr. Eaton, R. M., in fi
the County Court, Cork, on Saturday June ei
24th. Mr. Blake, who appeared for the de
fence, objected to Capt. Coote adjudicating, '
on account of the, opinion expressed by him
at Mallowr'that lone of the prisoners were
lnnocet,4uit ttl objection was overruled
rst, on the puon that the tasgist.rlltfL
weremerelf s ting magisterially, and nest, o
that Capt. Coote's words had been misrep- O
resented. The Crown Solicitor stated the
case against the prisoners, and read letters t
which have fallen into the hands of the 6
police from Robert O'Sullivan to a person F
named O'Callaghan, showing that the raid
was arranged so far back as last May. i1
These letters were signed "J Hughes," but a
were alleged to be in O'Snllivan's hand- m
writing. Cornelius O'Sullivan was men- of
tioned in them as ready to take part in the n
raid. Stephen Murphy was connected with t
the raid by means of a letter found near
the barrack, addressed "Dear Stephen," I
the envelope of which was found in his ,
house. Stack, when arrested, had in his
pocket a ticket issued to him the previous ci
night at Blarney, and Cashman was cap- sI
tured on the spot. Of the others, Barry ti
and Doyle were arrested with Murphy re
turning to Cork, and Daniel McCarthy was cl
found in company with Robert O'Sullivan
and Stack. The rest of the prisoners were
simply found returning to the city on Sun- a
day morning under circumstances consid- J
ered auspicious. Several witnesses were
examined, and the investigation not ha m
closed at 6 o'clock, was adJourned till i
day morning, three of the prisoners, Crob,
Walsh and Donoghue being admitted to t4
bail. P
The Very Rev. Dr. Flynn, V" G., accom
panied by . the Rev. P. Kent, P. P., t
John McGrath, P.P., and Bev. E. O'Don
naIl, P.P. and a large body of the clergy,
proceeded'yesteridty to the residence of t
our venerated prelate, for the purpose of
presenting the magnificent gifts purchased
for his Lordship by the priests of the dio
cese. The testimonial consisted of a large
and exquisite diamond ring and a massive
and finely wrought gold cross, with chain.
The Very Rev. and Rev. gentlemen were
received with that gracious and unaffected 2
cordiality which is one of our Bishop's en
dearing qualities. Dr. Flynn prefaced his
reading of his address by assuring his
Lordship that a much more costly present
would have been made if the priests were
not restrained from doing so by his simple I
and unostentations habits. He (Dr.Flynn) t
had no doubt that the feelings of reverence i
and grateful attachment which prompted 4
the offering would be, in his Lordship's I
estimation, ts chief value and attraction.
After Father Flynn had read the address,
Bishop O'Brien replied insa tone and man
ner which impressed all hearts.-Waterford

Our town presented a gay appearance on .
Friday evening last. Monster bonfires
erowned each eminesee in the nelghbor
hood, blazing tar barrels were whirled with
exultant shouts through streets and lanes,
, myriad tapers fashed out from the aewer
festooned windows, and bagpipes, drums,
violins, ete., paraded the town until a late
Shoar playing popular and inspiring airs, so
r. that all was 'merry as a marriage bell."

r, ting up the gala for our beloved pastor,
SVenerable Archdeacon O'Regan had on
. that day presented his parishioners with a
r, magnificent bell for their new church, and
its Bist maiden song rang out in honor of
f. the anniversary of our Holy Father's 25th
a- Pontificate. There was something very
r. affecting to a Catholic mind in hearing the
vast crowds (for country people had docked
into the town in hundreds) at 10 o'elock at
night shouting with one voice " Long live
Pius IX! Long live the 'ope King!
Long live our beloved pastor, Archdeaoon
O'Regan !" while the deep and solemn vi
brations of the newly hung bell were heard
for miles around.-Correspondent, Jums. 17.
A publie meeting of the citizens of Dublin I
was held on Sunday in the Carmelite 4
Church, Whitefriar street, to adopt mea- -
sures for raising a memorial to the late
Very Rev. Dr. Spratt. There was a great
assemblage on the occasion, the spaciousne
church being thronged in every part. A I
large number of ladies attended. Within I
tihe sanctuary were many of the leading
citizens of Dublin, Catholic and Protestant,
and a full representation of the trades of
the city. The foliowing resolutions were
adopted :
" That the character f the Very Rev. Dr.
Spratt as a priest, a patriot and a philanthro
pist. and the inestimable setrvies which, dur
ing half a ceptury, he rendered to religion,
education, country, temperance, and the sf
ferias poor, deserve to be held in grateful and
enduring remembrance. "

some degree express our sense of the long, un- I
wearied and self-sacrifoing labors of this pub
lie benefactor, and the sentiments of affection
and reverence with which his memory is re

over fifty years guardian of the St. Peter's
Orphanag, and during that Jme bestowed
upon it his anxious care and $nadqrrelieitudeo
the endowment of that admir bllbiMarity will
be a suitable application of tHe Memorial
Fend, at the same time providing fitting mon
"That it is the duty of all who respect a
long life spent without earthly reward in the I
advancement of sobriety and virtue, the pro
motion of Christian instruction, and the relief
of poTerty and suffering, to unite in raising a
memorial of the Very Rev. Dr. 8pratt, and I
that a subsoription be opened for the purpose. I
" That as the Very Rev. Dr. Spratt devoted
the greater part of his life to the promotion of t
the spiritual and temporal welfare of the
working classes, and uniformly manifested his
sympathy and love for them, this meeting
calls upon the trades and laboring classes, in t
an especial manner, to join in the general 4
tribute." t
A committee, with the lord Mayor as
chairman, was appointed to carry out the
purposes of the meeting. The Lord Mayor,
Sir James Power and Rev. John Hall were t
appointed treasurers. - Dublin Freeman,

On learning of Dr. Whitehead's intention
to resign the office of Vice President of t.
Patrick's College, Maynooth, the students
presented him with a massive silver claret

their well-being, and in appreciation of
those rare talents by which he has so sig
nally promoted the best interests of the
college for more than forty years, dring

t A rumor is current that Lorderby's
a estates in Tipperary have been bought by

to be hoped that this is true. Mr. O'Con

every prospect of his making an excelent
Slandlord. At the same time it strikes us it
