eseture by Col. D. Dennet on Tmmigration.
From the Picaune.l
The fifth lecture of the course, was deliver"
ed Tuesdnay evening at Lyceuom Hall by Col.
D. Dennet, who, with luminous force and ef
fective argument, took the following positions:
That the present povert, dlistress and htnumi
listio of the lrcople of Louisiana are chiefly
attributable to a bad State Government,
which might have beeun avoided but for the
multitude of negro immigrant laborete
brought to the State after the war, who be
camoe Louisiana voters, and voted for au imi
quitous Government and all of its terrible con
oel. cennet said that the black immn
grants, between twenty and thirty thous
and in number, cost the planters and enploy
era over a million dollars to bring them here,
and have coat the State eacrilices and damna
gee slu ce they came to the amount of more
than a hundred millions of dollars, besoides
widespread corruptions and the wreck of civil
liberty in the State.
The merchants of New Orleane advanced to
platers most of the money employed in bring
iug these colored laborers to the State, suppos
ing that it would sare the planter and benefit
the merchant, and improve the condition of
The experience of Texas, Virginia and other
Soethern States, shows that a large immigra
tlo of white farmers and their families to
thbis State is the only remedy we now have for
these terrible afltietlons which black imonigra
tion has brought apon.us.
White immigration atone can at the same
time give value to our lands, and save the
State from the horrors of complete and permas
Those who through a mistaken policy
brought to the State the men who voted to
rule un should sow come forward and aid
these who are aiming to repair the damages.
Land owners may improve the value of their
lands and help savathe State at the same time
by erecting cheap cottages on their lands, and
dividing theli into fifty and hundred acre lota
elling the lots and improvementon a credit o
dem iive to ten years in yearly payments, or
by leasing them out to white landless far
mere from this State, and from other States,
who are friends of justice and good govern.
There is more money in Louisiana soil, for a
good and industrious farmer, than in the soil
of any other portion of the United States.
White laboring men can stand this climate
and field labor the year round as well us ne
grous, will remain isa healthy and do as much
Small farmers are now making money in the
cultivation of sugar cane, cotton and rice, ev
en on the share system.
Skilled labor will develop valuable and nu
merous resources in this State that have hard
ly been touched by unskilled African labor.
Leas than two million acres of land are in
cultivation is this State, and over twety mil
lion are uncultivated. The white population
of this State has decreased more since last De
cember, than it increased in twelve years to
l872. Intaoxicating liquors coat consumers in
this State more than the planters and farmers
obtain for the entire cotton, sugar and rice
This State will remain4 Afrieanized, and our
troubles will becaome intolerable, unless mor
chants, capitallsts and other white citizens
work together in applying to the manifold
evils unde r which we truggle the true and
only legitimate remedy.
Politicians and orators cannot save the Stato
without a heavy increase of farmeua and white
By adopting the true policy and carrying it
out vigorously and unitedly, Louislata may
become far muse prosperous than ever before,
and New Orleans may vastly increase her pop
ulation, wealth and prosperity.
We may obtain multitudes of first-class im
migrants from all parts of the States, and
fruom Europe on the terms proposed by the
friends of immigration enterprises already on
foot in this State. 'We can relieve the public
ansity and dread, in a few months, and in
spire new hopes andl new energies among the
people, by taking hold of this work promptly
On our self-reliant energies of mind and
muscle, and on an overruling Plrovidencei must
we depend for the future safety and welfare
of the State. At the end of the lecture Col.
)Donnet was warmly applauded.

.uather Burke is Galway.-The Aloysian
Society of Galway, founded by Brother
Paul J. O'Connor in 1830, aii4 now num
bering over 200 members among whom are
many cletgymen and merchants on the 19th
ult presented Father Barke with a splendid
address of thanks for his glorious iindica
tion of Ireland while in America. From
Father Burke's answer we take the sub
"I am proud to tell you, that in the city
of New York, I received an Address from
a Society of Galwaymen bearing the. title
of the "Paul J. O'Connor Club,'" many of
our fellow-citizens who are members of it,
men who by their virtues, talents and in
dustry, won their way to wealth and inude.
pendenco, told me that among the tender
est recollections they brought with them
from lnnisfall was that they were members
of the Aloysian Society and pupils of Broth
er Paul J. O'Connor. In some of the great
Cities of America that I visited, I often
witnessed with regret, the indifference
to religion of people of other countries
not so with Irishmen, as soon as it was
announced that Father Tom Burke was to
preach, every Galwaymen came to .,ear
him, and when the faithful Irish people
thronged around me and recedied my name
with honor apd applause, I val nao
their applansdpaly u as much as it provy
ed the love they had fo the·QatholiOhuroh
of which I am a priest and for our, dear
mother Erin, whose child I am-bat when
they wotild crown me with booer, I laid
that crown first, at. the f(l of Almighty
God, ad then at the feetfi Brother Paul
J. O'Connor. I have see in Ameriesa num
bers Of Galwaymen, soImeDi6der than my
self-some younger, I have seen them ab
ounding in wealth--open-hearted and gen
erous. Ever ready to distribute their gold
with a liberal hand, when the wants of re
ligion or the necessities of the poor re
quired it; I have seen they again strug
gling with adversity and seekting consola
tion in religion; I asked myself where did
they learn this virtue and the answer was
that they were taught by him who is here
with us to-day. And this love of Faith
and Fatherland is the distinguishing char
acteristic of the Irish race in America ; I
recollect, when describingthe Irish charac
tar in some of the great cities there, I told
them an Irishman is usually a tall sinewy
fellow about six feet high, kind-hearted
and generous, but ever ready to strike a
blow for the old Faith and the old country.
This trait of- the Irish character is well
known in America. I remember when
traveling in a Railway-carriage near the
banks of the Mississippi, about 5,000 miles
from this spot, there was a great big fellow
in the same carriage who was employed on
one of the Levees of the Missiasppi; a
Norther.\ Yankee, who was sitting near
him said to his companion in my hearing,
not knowing that I was an Irish priest;
look here friend-you'd want to look sharp
and mind what you say now, that ere-fel
lar, I guess, is an Irishman an them sort
of fellars can't stand a word about thel
Pope or about their own country-so you'd
betther look sharp now and mind dont
say a word again the Pope or the Irish or
I guess that chap would fetch you a lick
over the bridge of the nose while you'd
be lookii' about you. Among the many
graces Almighty God has vouchsafed to
bestow upon me, I believe not the least is
that he permitted that an Elglishman should
be sent Over to America to oppose me there,
as it gave me an opportunity of striking a
blow for faith and fatherland. I know that
many a pure prayer was offered by the
faithful sons of the Old Country, and by
the fair daughters of mother Erin to beg
of Almighty God, that he would send an
angel to strenghten the Irish priest in the
contest in which he was engaged. It is not
for me to say whether the angel came, but
the Protestant press of America affirmed
that the angel did come, and aided me to
strike the blow for the old faith and the Old
"'Lltramontanism" and Liberalism.
There has been a brisk passage of arms
between the Pall Jfall garette and the Spec
tater, as to the amoud of reason contained
in the theory of persecution propounded
by the first-named paper. The original
position of the Pall Mali was that "religion
is matter of opinion and probability ; that
whoever claims to know much more about
it than other people, and in particular who
ever claims to be the exclusive guardian
and authorized interpreter of a Divine re
velation is condemned ipso facto, and that
the.fact Mlt he males such pretensions
disentitles him to any advantages which he
may claim from public authority": also
that Ultramontanes, as coming under this
category, would some day he tld tl
Englislhmen will not be bullied by them,
and will consider seriously how far they
will permit them to bully their "dopes."
Both the 'pectator and the Saturday Review
protest against this doctrtne, but it is the
Spectator with which the Pall lall is speci
ally anpgry, perhaps because that organ had
charrhterised its fulminations as "nonsen
sical bounce." Accordingly we had a freel
article on Monday repudiating the inter
pretation that 'forcible putting down' or
'persecuting,' in the sense of making the
profession of the Roman Cathblio creed in
any way penal," was whajhe writer nl
vocatej. What he meant s. "that if is
order to obtain certain obJset in reference
to these subject leducation, marriage, and
religious endowments] the Roman Cath
olice form themselves into a compact par
liameatary party ready to obhtruct all
other legislation and utterly indifferent to all
other interests than those of their "Church,
they wall have to be met by legislation on
these subjects conceived in a spirit directly
hostile to them. If, for instance, they ad
opt the tactics suggested, the fact that a
particular form of education is nopleasing
to them and unfavourable to their interests
will be a reason for adopting it." In ad
vocatiog this kind of legislation ab irate,
the Patll all seems to think that it es
capes the reproach of subjecting the pro
fessors of a particular religiop, to penal
consequences. It entirely, howiitr, blinks
the fact that it is virtually elevating its
scepticism, as the ,aturdag Reveiew puts it
"to the level of an established creed, the
denial of whicl enatails upon tihe dissenter
all manner of civil disadvantages." For
this is what it meanst. Catholics cotmbin
to ue their civil righita iu order to Irotect
their ratnarl right of baring their children
educated in a certain way. Tthis, argues
the Pall Mall, is a ronason for forcieg upon
them another system of education whlch
they dislike, and avowedly because they
dielikti i n Otwrte'r .wq a cti1qrse of
political power by ~ere'a~ncflnas orcitizcus,
even in their own concerns' i c acrime
that it must be puolnshed 14q interference i
those concerns in the w" Ay most painful te
n the offenders. For itLAust be remembered
ir that it is in their ow'" concerns alone thas
i. Catholics are dispeo ed to assert themselves
* It is utterly unjorA -fable to talk, as the
h Pall Mall does, r.bout their "attacking the
d lalty" and "im posing their will" on them,
e- Catholics bay a never desired to force Cath
a olie edneati ad on Protestants, or Denomin
ational ed.eeation on Secularists. All thae
they oly e m is a Catholie education foi

SpbjsEc' to contributing their share to. Pro
l tes;ant sad Secularist education. It if
)f s'arcely fair then to describe this polic;
t,as one which imposes itself on others. II
1- is the Secularist party which is "imposing
B- its will" on us by refusing to us, as the
r- Pall Mall would refuse, "any advantage'
m which they [we] may claim from patlic
re "authority." What Lord Palmerston sa:d

SIo F'rench Municipalitiees.-The atrocities in
e which the Lyonese habitually indulge
S e Flitieal excitement of any sor
r: arises in France, have forced upon the
I, Government and the'National Assembly
it the consideration of some means for check
an lg such tumultuous outbreaks in the fu
Id ture. The Governmet propose to reorga
iy nise the Municipality of Lyons after the
ai Paris fashion-to have the city dilided is
-. to five mayoralities, and the whole placed
u- nder the control of the Prefect. This pro
-. posal has greatly irritated the Communists,
- who abound in every grade almost in Lyons;
Id and a memorial has been forwarded to M.
- Thiers deprecating the proposed organiza
- tion as "an unmerited insult and a danger
- to the public peace-" As to the insult, never
3- wasanythlng more deserved by the habitual
id ruffianism of the Lyons mob, sanctioned by
a their cowardly or conspiring Municipal
re Council; and we cannot imagine a better
lb security against their systematic distur
r- bance of the public peace, than the measure
I proposed by the Government. The general
p question of municipal reorganization has
Ld engaged the attention of the Committee on
"y Decentralisation appointed by the National
Id Assembly, by whom it has been decided
a that in towns where the largest payers of
. taxes are not allowed to control the mu.
I nicipal finances, the Mayors shall be ap
in pointed by the Government. In the op
1e posits event, the Mayor will be chosen by
as Municipal Councillors and an equal number
w of the largest taxpayers. This latter pro
n posal is opposed by the Executive, who de
sire to hold in their own hands the power
ir of appointing all the Mayors.
g, Marshal .Baoaine.-We gather from late
; papers that the trial of the Marshal is to
'p come off, and that by direction of the Min
i- later of War, General Appert has been
rt looking out for a suitable place in which the
te accused may be arraigned. The trial is to
d best Versailles. According to a very inter
-t eating account furnished to the London
•r Times by its correspondent, of an interview
"k he lately had with the Marshal-who, as we
'd stated last week, has had the rigours of his
iy imprisonment so far relaxed that he is now
to allowed to receive the visits of his wife
is and friends for several hours of the day
Id the Marshal is most desirous to be tried, in
e, order to vindicate his much maligned char
a acter. The prejudicial story about his be
at ingentertained by Prince Frederic Charles
he at a magnificent dinner, before the snr
y render of Metz, he disposed of by the sim
eg pie statement that he and his staff went on
tn a very wet day to meet the Prussian com
lie mander under a flag ef truce, to arrange
t about prisoners and being delayed for sev
at eral hours awaiting the arrival of the
ed Prince, and drenched with rain, the at
to tendants offered some wine, which the Mar
Id shal put to his lips to avoid the reproach
of barbaric rudeness; and this constituted
the splendid banquet about which the ene
mies of the Marshal have been ringing the
no changes for eighteen months. His replies to
the questions of his English interrogator up
don several other matters pertinent to the
d charges urged against him were equally vin
al dicatory. With respect to the crowning
al charge-that with a hundred and forty
thousand men at his command he
at made no attempt to cut his way through
the lines of beseigers-the Marshal's
n answer is that he had only ninety
in thousand fighting men at his back.
Bwhile the enemy numbered 240,000. He
spoke in the most affectionate terms of
S" the poor Emperor," to whom he profess
e aed great devotoon; when asked " why tihe
i Bonapartlsts were so hostile to him "-a
circumstance of which we were not aware
-he replied that he supposed their hostility
was caused by "the a rd report that he
', had beennegotiating w th Bismarok for the
erection of Alasee and Lorraine into a
1 neutral Ducby, and his own elevation into
i the dukedom. Such a report might in
deed be well characterized as absurd.
2 The Cosrters nd the Police in Poses.-In
r Prussia, 4benever the arbitrary proceed
ings of the police come before the regular
Scourts, those tribunals seem to possess
s uficient Independence to reverse them.
In the matter of the newspapers paoseent
ed for publishing the Arcbbishop of Posen's
d Circular, the courts have decided that
there is no case, and that the conflseated
numbersmastbe returned to the proprie
Stors. Mgr. Ledochowski, by-the-bye, has
published a letter; in which he protests
against the unwarrantable interpretation
whichb it has been attempted to affix to
Sthat Circular. He has no objectiom what
ever, he says to the German language, nor
was les act dictated by any feehlngs of na
tionality, bat he maintains that among the
Syeunger children in the schools nineteen
out of twenty, or ratller forty-aine out of
yfty, do not understand one word of Ger
man asd that those who speak it a little
spk it only -suficlently to ask for ordi
I nari Isbut nhot enough to understand
a lessosrClve in that language. He adds,
aswe tod before, that he has no objection
whatever to religious instruction being
Sgiven in German as soon as the children
Shave acquired the language. Can we hope
that there is some one in the Prussian Ad
ruinistration sumeciently ceollieaded to aic
knowledge the obvious reasouableness of
Sthe Archbishop's demand ?

I- ters in all, of whom 6,000 are Catholics ) M.
i- de Mestral, a Protestant pastor of rausante,
it has written a remarkable letter, which the
)r Journal de Geneve has refused to publishb,
in on the subject of the perseeution at Geneva
+- and the state of things which have led to
is it. He seeks to explain why the Protes
y tants make ooasnen cause with the infidels.
S"'lIf," he say's "thls (Protestant) Church
g was not paralyzed and discredited through
ie Rationalism for the last hundred years *
%* " we should not see the Genevese
ic tremble like a leaf before Catholicism. If
d your Protestantism cannot support the
w presence of a Vicar-Apostolic within your
I- walls, if it has net the strength to resist
d such a trial as that, if you fear so greatly
a- its being brought into contact with the
* Roman Colossus, then permit as to tell
yoe, it is a very fragile vessel, to defend
and preserve which is scarcely worth the
trouble." The fact is, says M. de Mestral,
u that the managers of the Protestant Church
e "only succeed in maintaining the religioous
rt establishment which they call the National
1e Church by means of compromises, equivo
y catiopn, and clever balancing on the tight
rope." The "company of pastors," which
k has recently recommended "a version Of
the Scriptures falsified and tainted with
e. Arianism," as well as aa abiolutely anti
Christian catechism-both drawn up by
d members of its own body-"can scarcely
be an effective rampart against Cath
e olicism !" And "the errors with which
' the Roman Church is constantly re probed,
. inoclud.,g the dogma of the Pat In
fallibility, are far less to be feared as
r dangerous to the Christian life than the
r audacious negations of modern theology
I which sap the foundation of all belief, sad
Sleave of the Holy Scriptures (the founds
tion of Protestantism) nothing but a shred
--scarcely more than the title-page and the
cover." In the expulsion of Mgr. Mermil
e lod, M. de Mestral holds that the Govern
ment has cflnmitted, not only an illegal
a act, but a most decided blunder; for the
Bishop will be more powerful at Ferney
than he was at Geneva, as the attachment
to him of the clergy and people will be in~
creased, and the zeal of the Catholics ihthe
Canton and throughout Switzerland will be
stimulated. But he thinks that he per
ceives a motive in the action of the Fede
T ral Government. The latter has not yet
r obtained all the increased power which it
desires, and it may be glad "to do a good
turn for more eralted personages than
r M. Carteret and the frightened Protestants
of Geneva." But true Protestants, he Eon
e cludes, should be the last to applaud this
o "despotism of Berlin, Berne and Geneva,"
for by it, not Catholicism only, but Christ
ra ianity is attacked, and, therefore, also Pro
e testautism, in whatever it retains that is
2lhe Cler9gy of the Jura.-We have now
the text of the Berne decree ordering the
e prosecution before the Court of Appeal and
Cassation of all the ecclesiastics in the
Canton who signed the protest against the
e pretended deposition of the Bishop, and
provisionally suspending them fronr. all
n functions till judmnt can be obtained
against them. '1 a ree is accomplished
by an order of tht Efe[ntive Council to
the Prefects of the Jnr district, a district,
be it remembered, wish was annexed to
Uanton Berne under very special stipula
tions against interference with any Catholic
rights or privileges. This order enjoins
the prefects to serve upon each of the
ninety-seven ecclesiastics a copy of the
e decree; to put the suspension in force, by
charging a police agent to see that they
exercise no parochial function whatever,
and to demand of them the surrender of all
d the registers of births, death and marria.
e ges. The Liberte of Fribourg justly ob.
e serves that this act "places the Catholic
Jura in a position which Western. Europe
has never witnessed since 1793-a whole
e country deprived of its lawful pastors, the
priests of a whole district forcibly torn from
the spiritual charge of their parishes." And
the Fribourg paper does not think that the
Y Government will content itself with the
ii suppression of the clergy's means of sub.
sistence, or even with the seizure of the
churches and presbyteries. The clergy
y would be supported by the voluntarily
Soffernogs of the population, by subscrip.
tions froca the Catholics of Switzerland,
and if necessary of France, where there is
a long standing and lively sympathy for
"the Berneee Poland." And if they were
e only driven out of the churches, the Divine
Offices would be celebrated in the barns,
e so that the Government would have shown
e its intolerance to the whole of Europe
without any very great result from its own
o point of view. The Liberte therefore thinks
that there will soon be in Switzerland a
territory in which the preaching and pro
fession of the Catholic religion will be no
freer than they are in China or Corea, per
haps less free. This is by no means too
° strong a way of stating the case, for the
act which has been required by the parish
r priests is one, the committal of which
Swould cause them instantlg to cease to be
*Catholics. They are sum£n]ed "to break
off every kind of official relation" with
their Bishop, and "henceforward to exe
cute no order, commands, or measure
emanating from him."
Says the London Register : By degrees
the unmistakable designs of Ruasia upon
Khiva are allowed to leak out. It is now
r announced that permanent posseeMion Is
the aim of the Muscovites. We are glad
Sto be able to sy that we were never for one
moment among the fools and dupes who
, thought otherwise. At no period since the
death of Catherne has the Russian policy
of aggression and annexation been so ram
pant as at this moment. The clamour
I against Germany has subsided, and the
newspaper started some months ago at St.
Petersburgh, to advotate an alliance with
France, ihas ceased to exist. The Czar is
all powerfol atSeheran and Constantinople,
where the Shah and the Sultan court his
friendship. Happy they if the Bear do not
hereafter hug out their existence as rulers
o f nations. At present he and his ally, the
Gernian Empergr,1,ave one object in view,
hIe humiliation of Eugland; and the time.
is near-much nearer than people generally
suppose-when the hireling wretches in
this capital who have for the last three
3 ears been writalg up Bismarck and popu
larising his brutal policy, wfil strive to
esave themselves from the fury of the be
trayed people of Epgland by the load news
of their peridious roar against their pre
sent paymaster add idpl.
PFse the Philadelphia Isqgsrer, we clip the
following report of the proceedings of the
Pennsylvania State Legisla ure during its s.ea
slon on the 10th last :
The House continued in session tIa" m -
ng nnat two e'clock,- No. beila of I r
tine w transacted, the O contin g
in session being merely to ve messages
from the Senate, and to conyf amendments
made by that body.
FUN AND FROLIC..
During the intervals when thefe were no
messages the members of the House indulged
in the usual amusements atttending the close
of the legislative body. These consisted of
calling the most ineompetent members to pre
side, and then overwhelming them with ab
snrd questions and ridiculous motions. In one
days the member who assumed the chair was
yen cut of it by repeated discharges of pa
and deouments from all parts of the
ose. As some of these missiles weighed
half a pound each, and were thrown with
great force and velocity, the fan of dodging
them was more exciting than pleasant.
Finally, as a sort of intellectual relief to the
entertainment, Mr. Broekaway offered a reso
lution appointing a committee to invite Hen.
A. K. WMcClure and the balance-of the Liberal
Republiosn party to address the House on the
condition of all the political partise in exis
tense. The resolution was agreed to Messrs
Brodcaway, Joseph and Titernary, were ap
pointed the committee, and proceeded in quest
of Senator McOlure. He was soon found and
was ascorted ipso the hall. As he entered the
members of the House rose and greeted him
and the committee by whom be was eseeorted,
with a volley of paper missiles, consisting of
a general aseoleizit of all the legislative de
uments of. the assion, in addition to ar

After ronning , the gauntlet the entire length
of the halt, the Senator took his place upon
the Speaker's stand, amidst'applAuse half in
earnest and half jeeringly.
Mr. Speaker and Commoners of the State of
Pennsylvenia :-I thank you for the distinc
tion you have conferred upon me by your invil
tation to address you on the subject of reform.
I know of no ether body of men, either of the
present or past, that needs instruction on the
necessity of both publio and private morality
so much as the House of Representatives of
this State, now before me, or that has so
broadly and deeply experimented in the line
of individsal proligacy. I am not surprised,
however. that i te so when I consider that of
the members erving in this House from my
immediate locality many were not even nomi
nated, and few, if say, were ever elected. I
sent you reform. bills, which cost me many
days of anxious thought and labor to perfect,
but you danoed not when I piped to you,
neither did you weepresponsive to my mourn
ing over the degeneracy of the body politic.
- I must admit, however, that you were prompt
executioners, for every bill that looked toward
reform was negatived with a yell as fast as
rules would allow. But in political, as often
in moral and religious cycles, the darkest hour
is just before the dawn of day, and iLts grati
fying that, after yoen have.eousumn~ated all
the harm you can possibly inflict upon the
State, you have, by a unanimous resolution,
called for a confessor. It is well to pause thus,
just for the sake of novelty or reference, so
that when the tempest breaks you can point
to this becoming act of contrition for the
wrongs done to your constituentseand to the
Commonwealth. Most of you, whohave for
three months been serving in the places to
which other persons were elected by the ps
pie, have discounted the retributive wavie f
popular reprobation by creating offoes by
legislative enactments to which you hope to
retire; and those unprovided for hope to be
placed on the Indefinite pay roll of the pasters
and folders of th House, in accordance with
the prevalent custom here to pension decayed
statesmen. That you seek liberal counsels to
have good seed sown in the chaos eof virtue
that surrounds you is a hopeful sign of the
times, and if you do not cheat us more than
30,000 in Philadelphia next fall, the places
that know you now will know most of you no
more forever. But I turn to the faint silver
lining on the deep cloud of your record. One
act of this House gladdened the hearts of the
whole people of the State and reinspired hope
throughonut the length and breadth ofthe Com
monwealth. I refer to your vote, in the midst
of disorder that at a Philadelphia fire would
be called a riot, on Monday evening last, fixing
an early day for your finul adjournment. I
have heard of no citizen of the State who did
not heartily approve of that act. I am happy to
point to it as the oasis in the withered desert
that yenu have made about you, and to accord you
credit for it. Hoping, gentleman, if I may be
pardoned the use of the term, that the length
of your lives may correhpond with the mesnure
of your virtues, and that you will be suoceeded
by better men than yourselves, I bid you good

and a liberal shower of paper balls.
