PLAQUEMINE, May 7th, 1872.
To the Editor of Morning Star :
Five or six weeks of fine growing
weather have added somewhat to the
prospects of the crops along the coast, but
the chance has not been sufficient to cause
our people to expect any better crop than
was made last year.
Times are dull, and money is not to be
had. Property sells at merely nominal
prices and we fear must so continue.
Several pieces of nice property were sold
here last Saturday at Sheriff's sale, and
" went for a song." The plantation of
lion. C. A. Brusle, near St. Gabriel, in this
Parish, established and cultivated as a
sunar estate, was sold for the pittance of
$7,700-title good. Several pieces of de
sirable town property were adjudicated at
correspondingly low figures-for less, in
fact, than the main buildings on them cost.
This is truly an ugly state of affairs, and
claims the attention of every good citizen.
Add to this the heavy burden of taxation
the people of our State have to bear, and
one must admit that the planters deserve
praise for working along as courageously
as they do.
Pursuant to a call made by our kind
pastor, Father D'Hemecourt, at High Mass
last Sunday, a number of gentlemen-old
and young, of our congregation assembled
in the evening at the presbytery, and after
• a few words from the Rev. Father explana
tory of the meeting, the gentlemen present
at once organized and proceeded to form a
section of the Cathollo Militant Union of
the Cross, by erecting Michel Herbert,
SEsq., a worthy representative of the old
Creole stock of our section, President;
John H. Shanks, editor of the iberville
South, Yice -President , Austin Hunt,
Treasurer; and Lucien Grass, Secretary.
Thus this good work has been begun in
our midst, and we hope will go on until
every member of our congregstloa is en
rolled in the Militant Union, to do his part
in the great Catholic movement of the
LETTER FBOM PASS CHRISTIAN, MISS.
PAss CHnISTIAN, May 6, 1872.
Editor Morning Star:
Having been favored with an invitation
to attend a literary and musical entertain
ment given by the Irving Literary Society
of Pass Christian College on Saturday
evening last, I was so well pleased with
the entertainment as to deem a report due
to the gentlemen of the association. At
the appointed hour I proceeded to the
college, and, from a distance, perceived
i.numerable lights pendent from the trees,
and hung on the bushes and shrubs that
adorn the extensive and beautiful grounds.
Nearer approach revealed a large number
of fanciful Chinese lanterns of all possible
shapes, sizes and colors, which, suspended
in .tho ar waved to and f wit th
gentle breeze, aflording a sight at once
novel and picturesque. Scarcely had we
taken our seats when the college band
executed an overture, showing that the
efforts of their eflicient leader, Professor
L. Bayersdorifer, had beeu crowned with
complete success. The Irvings then
stepped upon the stage, when Mr. W. A.
Elder, President of the society, in a few
i well chosen words, welcomed the audience,
begging their leniency in behalf of his
comrades, as mete tyros in the art of litera
ture. Tile exercises of the evening were
vrely interesting, and, with some exceptions,
much. praise must be given b-th for
thought and delivery. In tile latter re
1 spect, however, several members were
somewhat deficient, and evidently showed
a want of previous practice, which ma
terially detracted from the merit of their
compositions. This, I afterwards learned,
- was in no small degree owing to the fact
that a sudden illness deprived them of the
f valuable assistance of their critic. Space
is wanting to make a full review of the pr,
grammne, but Mr. W. C. McCarty deserves
menlltion for the feeling manlier in which 1:e
delivered "The Scveinth PIlague of Egypt."
- A very humnerous and interesting corlt.s
pIttoudlece, America, by Jno. Chilnamnan
was read by Mr. J. Tesson, whilethe "'May
tiarol," an original poem fromr the pen: of
Mr. ii. Dufour showed that gentlela:tn to
be possessed of considerable power iin thi'
- departlent of literature.
y In the musical depllartlment IMr. E. Iir
t naudz gained lucch applause for tllhe
u manner in which lie executed tha:t beauti
1 ful d difflicult opera of "Robert le
Diable." A song from the choir prove4d ea
pleasing as to be encored, anld a liket good
fortune met the solo of Mr. Geo. Corkery.
t e regret no cing able to particularize
more, since all the young gentlemen cer
tainly did great credit to themselves and
furnished a musical treat to tlhe audience
that would have done honor to older and
more etxperienced perfornlcrs. The laues
tion " Which country sutllBred the more,

i.rs. 'Tierta and Dufour, for IReltnd,

A serious tlot took place in Klarkof, a larKs
market town of South Russell, last wee
caused by the interference of the police with
the Easter amnusements of the people. The
fire-engines were brought out to disperse the
crowd by throwing water on them. This so
exasperated the populace that they attacked
the police and fire stations and gutted them.
The Gove nor ordered out the troops, who
I were stoned by the mob, whereopon they fired,
and many citizens were killed and wounded.
The rioters then dispersed and at last accounts
the city was quiet but under martial law.
The debate in the House of Commons, on the
bill to rlepeal the unlawful assemblage act,
was protrac:ted to a late hour, and was very
exciting. Tihe motion was for a second read
f ing of tlc bill. Several Irish members took
oceasio, to make speeches in defence of HJome
Rule. What they wanted was to have the
laws of Ireland assimilated with those of Eng- i
land. The Marquis of Hartington, Secretaiy
for Ireland, opposed and denounced Home
Rule at synonymous with Fenianism. He ex
plained the present law, showing that in effect
it prohibited the assembling of an Irish Par
liament. Isaac Butt, member for Limerick,
D declared himself for Home Rule, but indig
nantle denied that he was a Fenian, as inti
mated by the Marquis of Hartington, of whom a
h- e demanded retraction.' He protested against
such expression coming from a minister, who
received his information of the country he
sought to rule over through detectives and
Sspies--the real ruling powers in Ireland. If it
was true that home rulers were Fenians, it
spoke well for Home Rule, which had been
able to win back to peace men driven into re
hellion by shameless legislation. Until Irish
r men obtained the right to manage Irish affairs
in an Irish parliament, peace, content and
prosperity were utterly impracticable. He
warned Commons that If the act was not re
pealed Irelan would endanger te sasety
Stheempire. He wanted for Ireland a local
government-like that of the American States,
and for the kingdoms national legislation,
similar to the American Congress.
The Commission of Capitulation, in their
report, praise the commander of Phalsbourg
for his brave and obstinate defence of that 1
fortress, and recommend that he be decorated 1
with the Cross of the Legion of Honor. They
also exonerate the commander of Neubrisach
of all blame for the capitulation of that place.
The report exonerates the General Command
ing in the Lower Rhine Department of all
blame for the surrender of Listenberg, and 1
reprimands the commanders who capitulated I
at Marsal, Vietry and Le Francoise. The trial, I
by court martial, of Marshal Bazaine, who was a
censured by the Committee on Capitulation t
for his conduct at Metz, will be held at the
riding school at Versailles, and wilLcomanence
the latter part of April. That will probably
last over one hundred days. One thousand I
two hundred witnesses will be summoned to 1
testify before the court. The Governmaent I
will allow Bazaine to employ, as his counsel, i
M. Lanchard, the well-known advocate. Mair
shal Bazaine surrendered himself. Tuesday
night, to stand trial by court nartial.
The action of the police authorities in for
bidding the members of the International So
ciety fronm holding a meeting in Copenhagen,
S sciquent arrest of the President and
Treasurer-of-the -branch there, gave rise to a
great excitement among members of the or- a
ganization. A large number gathered in the I
streets and created considerable alarm by a
their violent denunciations of the Governlmen t.
They were finally dispersed by the police. It
has been deemed prudent to place a military
guard around the public bui'ings andl palaces
* until the excitement bas Watirely subsided.
SThe leading members of the society will be e
prosecuted for high treason. The police are

MR. JOHN MARTIN, M.P., ON HOME RULE.
Mr. John Martin has written a letter to
the Freeman'sn Journal, urging that a mo
tion in favor of Home Rule should be
brought forward in the House of Commons,
e before the close of the present session.
He obse/qt that some of the Home Rule
members d emit good policy for Ireland
to join with the nglish and Scotch mem
bers in trying to effecolegislative changes
which may perhaps tet.to smooth the
way towards Irish independence; but he
believes that the sooner the irrevocable de
termination of Ireland is made known to
, England, the sooner the English are in
dnced to confess the evil of the Union, the
sooner the two peoples deliver themselves
a out of the present unhappy relation of
a hated master and disaflected slave, the
sooner an honorable, friendly and safe ar
rangement is made between. the Queen's
English subjects and her Majesty's Irish
subjects-the better for all parties. Mr.
Martin sees no reason why the session
should belost. He is convinced that Home
Rule will not be obtained until the English
-people, in whose sense of justice be has
slight confidence, are convinced by a uni
versal expressiob of opinion in favor of the
demand by the Irish race at honie and
abroad, that it is no longer safe for them to
keep us in subjection. So rapid and strong
t is the present movement for Home Rule,
t that such,a universal pronouncement of the
Irish race may soon be obtained, if the
proper means be taken for obtaining it;
and a parliamentary debate this besaion
seems to him one of the proper means, and
one the neglect of which may seriously re
trd progress ofthe national cause.
THE IRISH PROTESTANT-STNOI.
This body has been very busy indeed.
The proceedings as reported in the daily
papers read very much like those of a pro
vincial town council or poor law board of
guardians. There is an utter absence of
the dignity befitting a religious governing
body-and, if not an absence of courtesy
in debate, there is a very frequent disre
gard of it-as when a lay member tells
the Archbishop of Dublin that he has
"violated his ordination vows," and where
the lie direct is given to the statement of
another member. By one resolution the
names of Saints were removed from the
e calendar, and by another the Lessons of
the Apocrypha were expunged from the
Book of Common Prayer, notwithstanding
a very feeble attempt made by the clerical
party headed by the Archbishop to retain
Sthem; one lay member characterizing them
as a tissue of "nonsense, fables, and lies."
One would think that the reformiation of
Protestantismn was work enough for the
Synod, yet the education question could
not be shelved thloogh marked "very dan
gerous." After various forms of resolution
had been discussed. the following moved
by Sir It. Orpen was adopted: "That this
Synod most strongly deprecates the intro
duction into Ireland of the system of ede
cation proposed by the Roman Catholic
hnierarchy." Though it is certain thiat
every member present would desire to
take the education of Catholic children out
of the hands of Catholics, it is instructive
to note how great a number of the mem
bers have qualms of conscience as to the
entire elimination of religion from school
teaching, as shown by the voting or or
against the resolution as follows : Laity
Ayes, 77, Noes, 52 ; Clergy- -Ayes 71, Noes
G63. There being consequently 118 in favor
l and 115 against the resolution.

WORKING LIENs ASSOCIATION.
At a meeting of the working-men and

held inl the Mechanic's Institute for the
purpose of drawing public attention to the
present deplorable condition of the labor

ployers to consider the greatly increased
cost of living, and to increase the wages of
laborers to IG shillings per week, was
adopted. The promoters of the meeting
vehemently repudiated the slightest accord

M. Thiers at Paris.--M. Thiers continues
to amuse himself in the absence of his
masters ; he has been present at an official
reception of hi. Jules Simon's, and has
given two dinners and receptions at the
f Elysee. Among the guests at the first din
ner were several mayors of Paris* the
second was given to the clergy aDn the
judges. But both at M. Jules Simon's and
at his own reception M. Thiers took care
that he should be overheard to say : I must
go in time to reacl' my legal domicile; I
must not "sleep out." as I am under the
surveillance of the Committee of Perman
enco. The impression produced -and
probably intended to be produced-is that
B the President is subjected to the most ab
surd restraint, and that there can be no
possible reason why he should not be al
lowed to live in Paris, if he likes. The
question of the transfer of Government is
sure to come on again not long after the
reopening of the Assembly.
JlM. Jun.ua and Molus. - The Abbe
SJunqua has been condemned by the Bor
I deaux court to six months imprisenment,
we presume for libellous publications-but
has given notice of appeal, and has arrived
in Paris. The other priest, accused of
complicity in these libels, M. Mouls, is re
ported to be about to open an "Old Cathe
lic" chapel at Brussels.
r France and the Haly See.-The Uaivers
announces that a numerously signed peti
tion in favor of the rights of the Holy See
will be presented to the Assembly after
the recess. The same paper publishes a
note signed by M. Louis Veuillot, in which
he says that the words uttered by the Pope
on the 13th inst., (they are published in our
Roman Letter) recommending charity to
certain Catholics, must certainly be exclu
sively applied to him. M. Veuillot says he
will obey, and will seek to effect the de
sired harmony; but if the Pope. who is the
Judge, considers that the work of the LUni
revs can no longer have the character de
manded by the interests of the Church, that
work shall be terminated.
The Prussian Government and the Church.
The last of the vexatious measures against
the Church in Prussia-which a correspon
dent in the Voce dellc Verita attributes to
a quasi-reconciliation between'Prince von
I Bismarck and the Masonic iuterest repre
B sented by the Crown Prince-has been the
removal of about sixty-ecclesiastics in the
Polish provinces from their posts as in
spectors of schools. The Bishop of Ilil
desheim has directed the clergy of his dio
cese to retain the inspection of the schools,
at least provisionally; adding that if the
! position becomes practically untenable,
and it is impossible to reconcile the Divine
" law with human legislation, "we shall
I have to enure the grief of withdrawing
our co-operation, and aibandiiiing a field
of labor which the Church has cultivated
s with so much love and so many sacrifices."
r The Bishop's answer to the inquiry respect
ing the effects of excommunication is not
yet made public. In the meantime, aFree
mason has been expelled from his lodge for
disobedience to the supreme lodge. The
cases are parallel enough, but we do not
Shear that Herr Falk lhas objected to excom
munication when fulminated by this tribu
' nal. The President of a Catholic club has
also been prosecuted, because on the sup
- I ression of the club it appeared from the
archires that this club, with many others,
jo,ined in the address last year to Cardinal
1 Autouelli, protesting against the calutmnmies
r contained in: a pretended " Biography " of
his 'Eminence. Tile Central Committee,
the court decided, had become a political
association by the fact of prop:gaating this
address, and the particular club in que~s
timn, by entering into communication with
the Committee, hail violated the law by
communicating with another political as
sociation similar to itself. If we are to be
lieve the London Standard's Cologne cor
I respondent, the Government ere by no
means so certain of ultimate success as
they were a few weeks ago. The Conserva
tive party are becoming suspicious, and if
it becomes apparent that Government is not
only acting against the Catholics but throw
ing itself into the arms of the Liberals, the
whole Conservative element in the house
will go over in a body to the Opposition.
Bishop Strossmayer.- We contradicted,
some months ago, the authenticity of a
speech said to have been deliveredl in the
Council by Bishop Strossmayer, and pub
lished by the enemies of thle Church. This,
or something like it,, appears to have got
into the Austrian papers, for Mgr. Stro.s
mayer lhas written to Mgr. Feasser, the
Secretary of the Council, to repudiate it,
mdding that hIis ideas are radically d;tl'er
emit from those maintained in thie pretend
ed speech. " I am conscious," hlie contin
ies, " that I have never said anything I
which was calculated really to weaken the
authority of the Holy See, or to wound in,
the least degree thIe unity of the Church."
lIe authorizes tile Bishop of St. Polten to
make any use of his letter, and that Pre
late publishes it as coming from onup "with
whose iname thie enemies of thIe Church
take," he says, "strange liberties;" We i
mention the f.mct principally for thIe infor
mation of those who have gone so far as to I
name Mgr. Strossmayer as a possible con- -
secrator of schismatic Bishope.
7he College of Cardinals.-" Our Own
Correspondegpt, of the London Telegraph ,
writing from Paris, under date of April 2
14th, says:-" A private letter from Rome,
received yesterday in Paris, and writtm ,
by one of high authority in the Vatican,
states that the Pope has no longer any in
tention whatever of leaving the Eternal City.
The College of Cardinals, it adds, has deter
mined that, in the event of the death of the
Holy Father, the Conclave to elect his suc- j
ceasor will be held elsewhere, probably (
within the limits of France or Austria, or
perhaps in the Island of Malta. ThIe same I
letter says that the Pope has been persuad- 1
ed to fill up thie vacancies among the car- -
dinals, which now amount to twenty-six ,
or twenty-seven ; and that in thie list of
hats conferred thenames of the Archbishop "
of Paris, the Bishop of Orleans, Archbishop
Manning, and three German prelates will
be included. The Pope, so says the letter,
aeems to have no fear 'for the fature,and
appears confident that sooner or later the
Temperal Power of the Roman See will be
restored. But the cardinals are evidently
impressed with the idea that, should a
new election for the Papacy take place,
more or less pressure will be put upon
them to elect as Pope one of the few car
dinals who are on comparatively, good
terms with the Italian Court. The Ambas.
sandors accredited to the Vatican from
France, Austria, Belgium, Holland, Spain
and Portugal are very anxious that, in the
event of the Pope's death, the Conclave
should take place at the Vatican, and offer
to guarantee the perfect freedom of the
future Pope's election --Butthe-- cardwira
do not seem to haveany confidence in the
present state of Ronle, and say that,
although the Italian Government might
aci i htitly by them, the mob of the city
is not to le truasced.
