We most earnestly advise and request
*' all our readers to examine atttentively the
a speech of the Archbishop of Westminster,
recently delivered in Liverpool and which
they will And republished on another page.

in sentiments which ought to be more current

11 has never done so and never will. do so,
r that be finds Whigs, Tories, Liberals and
Conservatives among his flock, and has no
disposition to take sides among them;
7 but, he adds, "There are certain things
e which are not political and on these I think
we are bound to have an opinion, and
having It, to express it, and haVuSg express
ed it, to act upon it."
Oe Again he says, "Catholic fathers and mo
t heir '- ought to be admonished
by their Bishops that if they send their
cons to these universities, they expose them
to the risk of losing their faith, that to ex
pose a son to the riak'fl losing his faith is
of to commit a sin of such gravity-that- you
it. know its same." It will be seen that the
y same remark applies to the Godless or
Si Sectarian Schools of this country.

with the evil. The first fact is that the

Another set, and a very bloody one, ha
been played in the drama of Louisiana poi
ities. Nearly seventy bodies of dead negroe
have been buried, victims of tha recen
collision at Colfax, in Grantbparish of thi
State, while it is impossible, as yet, t
goess at the number of those who scapei
with wounds more or less serious.. .A con
siderable number of white men were ala
shot, two of them fatally so far as hearn
from, and others whose injuries may ye
prove mert:. Q
Who is responsible for this terrible los
of life It is certain that the negroes c,.m
menced the scenes of violepee which havr
thus terminated so tragically, but wd an

were found in their babd. It is foreibl;
assqrted that many of them were there b;

even friendly to the whites, and were com
pelled by force and intimidation to joib
the ranks of the more lawless.
But what gave the impulse to this more
meat1 Its prime mover seems to be I
fellow by the name of Ward, a member o
the so-called Legislature which as re
cently in session here under the anspicel
of Kellogg. We cannot from this mere
fact, fasten the authorship of the crime
on Kellogg, but certainly he knew of the
outbreak long enough to have prevented
the subsequent collision if he had desired
to do so.
We must conclude that lie did not care
to prevent it. He knew that the negrc
element in the parishes of that section was
far in the ascendant numerically, and prob
ably believed that it would be able to over
awe the white population, or prove victo
rious in case of collision. From appear
ances, one must judge that Mr. Kellogg
favored the lawless usurpation of the ne

Certainly the Louisiana question is grow
ing to be a grave one. No taxes, no credit,
no courts in many places, a settled deter
mination on the part of many persons to
resist by every legitimate means a gov
ernment which they consider a usurpation,
-all this makes a picture not very sugges
tive of tranquility for uour future. The
most stringent measures will undeubtedlp
be takbu by courts, in those .places where
they have power, to enforce the so-called
revenue laws. We see already the course
that is being pursued in regard to Mr.
Booth, and it may be that in' few week,
more, the officials will have thousands ol
business men on their hands to be support
ed in prison. In that case new jails will
have to be improvised, for the ones we have

There are rumors of war in connectiln
with our sister Jepnblic. These "ay bd
mere gossip, or there may be some- founo
dation for them though Gen. Sherman
assured a "reporter" that the "Empire is
peace." These assurances are not always
prophetic, and it may not be uninstructive
to look ahead occasionally at contingences
as uncertain as this.
It is said,by the war-mongers that the
programme is for the North to furnish the
money while the South shall contribute
the men. That is to say, eack section hat
the field allotted to it in which it excels.
This is complimentary, but-.
What reason have we for cutting Mexi
can throats? or for fightingenthusiaatically
under the orders of Gen. Grant? Has his re
cent action towards Louisiana endeared him
so much to our peoplet Have our relations
with Congress, indeed, become so cordial
that our young men must volunteer to fight
its battles ? They might indeed, curry a lit
tie favor by making themselves obsequlo'a
and superserviceable. Perhaps, if they
were good boys, Congress would pat them
on the back a little, after a while, and put
them on a footing with negroes, provided
they should beacme good Regublicans.
But the probability is that a sentiment
of self-respect and personal dignity would
f restrain most of our young men from too
sudden and vi4 a friendship of this
kind. S 4,.
On the other hand there are many who

But we would be far from counseling any
thing of the sort. No? Our Southern
country needs the energy and labor of all

be a war, let us have nothing to do with it,
either on one side or the other.

confidence in the telegraphic reports con

yet the -most ay of theCa millionaires pt
down was 10,000. Had one or two aubscribed
a900 000 a0 pai and ths have ooptrol, th
paper would have been started, and, no doubt,'
would have been sueoessful; bat we hur this
generation will not sed snb a result. The
taste, the spirit, the-something is waating
among our people. Our gioh Catholics, with
a few praisewortby exeuptions, never endow
an Institution-never build an orphan asylum
-never establish a home for the aged-never
uadow a hospitable.-no, it is the small e*llbe
lons that do all these. It is notao with those
outside the Church. They leave thousands
for the propagation of their ides--they do all
n that line that our people fall to do. It may
be well to remind onrselves bow much ahead
of us the German-speaking Catholics are. We
learn that they have raised over $500,000 al
ready for the establishment of a daily Catho
lic paper, to be published in New York in the
German language. It will be rtd very
soon ; the money is paid in, andt paper will
be a success. Here is an exampjle forr rich
Catholic; but it will, w veear, have o effect.
We have plenty of talent, if it could be used
-if there were a field for it-but the men who
have the talent have not the money, and the
men who have the money lack the talent, and
the result is that our Catholic English writers
are necessitated to dispose of their talent In
the non Catholl market or starve. The New
York 2)ite, Herald, end, and even the
2emes, cntrol exoellegftatholio talent, and
whyt Jaus-e they can for it. We boast
of oofdilne oharohe-copa odions, beautiful;
of colleges and convents, and yet, strange to
any, we save the weakest, the ;pdoreat and
worst supported literature in the country.
Even in books we are behind. Any one of
the large nou-Catholic publishing houses in
the country issue more books in the interest
of the devil than all our publishing houses put
together, issue for the honor of God!!! This
is fact. Let who will gainsay it.
The above from a recent number of the
Oincinnati Telegraph, is deserving the ser
ions consideration of all English speaking
Catholics. That our German co-religionlats
fully appreciate the necessity of using the
powerful influences of the press in preserv
ing the faith and'morals of their children
and in affording them inostruction and am
useonentas. well as in securing these to
themselves, is evidenced by the number
and circulation of the Catholic papers,
printed in German, at presentpublisbed In
this country. There are now daily German
Catholic papers published in Buffalo, Phil
adelphia and St. Louis, all in a fldirlahing
condition and gradually extending in cir
culation and influence. We think that
recently another daily paper of the same
kind was started at Oleveland, Ohio, and,
as the Telegraph's article shows, ,50,000
have already beds subscribed for the pur
pose of establishing another in New York.
Of weeklies, the German Catholics hive
-one in Baltimore, circulation 25,000; one
in Cincinnati, circulation 16,000; one in
Jamaica, Long ,Ialand, N. Y. eirculation
14,000; and two in Buffalo, N. Y. They
doubtless have many other weeklies, but
as we have not certain information concern
ing them, we prefer to let the above, of
which we are certain, pass as the evidence
of what the German Catholics, compara
tively few in numbers when compared with
English speaking Catholics generally, are
doing in this line, in behalf of their religion.
If the more serious consideratlond we have
mentioned have not, so far, been sufficient.
ly powerful to secure the establisment, by
English speaking Catholics, of daily paperr.
and to cause them to give a generous and
liberal support to the weeklies already in,
existence, at least human respect and pride
ought to excite them to some degree of
emulation of the zeal of the Germans.

no rejoice that our own ;0ntury claims a name, no

In there Is heard the echoing cry: Gallitzinl
