HnALTn or Tae HOLYr FATna.-During the
earlypart of the week theb cable dispatches re
ported the Pope as rapidly improving in

ay he had a relapse and wase again confined to
him bed.
GEaLINY. -On the 24th, the upper House of
the Prnssian Diet spent six hours in debate on
the bill regarding the training and appoint
ment of the clergy. . Bismarek made a apeoh
In support of it, stating that the attitude of
of the Government is jusntified because of the
domineering aesumptions of the priests. A
very serion o contiDnuing fonr days was

SrAx.-Serious differences have arisen be
tween the Ministers and the Permanent Com
mittee appointed by the Cortes to act during
the time it is not in io , General Pavia
has resigned comm lMrid and unarmed
troops parade the streets of thd city where
much excitement exists. In Malaga the vol
unteers have mnutinied and Barcelona is raled
by the Federal Republicans. The Carlilts
meanwhile continue to gather strength and
confidence and are gradually gaining gronnd.
DESTRUCTION OF SAN BSALVADo.-The de
struction of San Balvador is confirmed. A
population of 40,000 ruined. Every city with
in the radinsbf twenty miles suffered mere or
lees. bShocks continned from the 4th to the
19th of March, when the climax was reached.
Fortunately such citizens as had not left the
city were living in Plszas, hence the loss of
life, though great, was much lessened The
Hotel De Plaque and the Government Palace
only are left standing. Loss estimated at 112.i
000,000. Aggregate less of life 500.
wNITED STATES.
THi INDIANS.-Reports from the lava beds
are contradictory; during the early part of
the week it was stated that the Modocs had
deserted them and in small bands were prowl
ing about the country, and great fears were
entertained for the lives of the settlers; snb
sequent reports show, bhowever, that they are
still in their old position. On the 16th, a fight
took place in which sixteen Indians are re
ported killed, among others the redoubtable
Sohoncbin. The troops lost seven killed and
twelve wounded. More troop. are being sent
to the front where all are waiing for the
friendly Warm Spring Indians to commence a
decisive fight. Two of the worst bands of
Apaches in Arizona have submitted anoondi
tlonally. They have defed the Government
for twenty years, but the loss ofstwo bhundred
of their warriors during thelast campaign dis
pirited them. Gen. Crook accepted their sur
render.
Euaan.Asr.-It is stated that over two bhn
dred emigrants arrived in New York on the24th,
who were promised by the agents in London
that they would be given work immediately
on tbeIr arrival; but they found the promnise
entirely false. Out of some 5000 emigrants
who have reached there since last friday,
about 4000 are nuprovided with means, bay
ing spent all their means to get here, on the
representations that they would be employed
upon landing.
Dedication of Ireland to the Sacred Heart
ofJesus.
Referring to the solemn dedication of Ire
land to,the most Sacred Heart of Jesus, the
DWblia Nsuie of the 5th inst. says:
The great national-religious ceremonial of
last Sunday will be remembered and commem
*rated in Ireland as long as the Irish race in.
habit their paternal seats; as long as Irish
stresamlets rna sad Irish breeseaeblow apon the
everlasting bills of "the Sacred Isle."1 With
everdowing hearts-with emotions the deep
est, the meast solemn, that ever stirred the hn
ma seal-a whole people have performed an
met of trsaseeadant homagpand supplicoation
to the Most High; have solemnly dedicated
thir esnntry to the aecred Heart of Jesus
Theseenes of Sunday last in the churches of
Ireland will be memorable for ever I Never
not even in the days of primitive faith-could
these scenes have been surpassed, could such
ferrour and piety be exceeded. From early
dawn to noon the sacred edifices overflowed
with living crowds. The humble thatobhroof
ed hobapel on the distant mountain side; the
spacious cathedral in the wealthy elty; the
gleas of earrv sad MayW ad rs.a; the
.tee dslaisvai o; Cseh l* 4a
be forgotten by the beholder! The conznni
cants were to be numbered not by tens but
hundreds of thousands; and presented an
aggregate without precedent in our religions
annals!
A great, a gigantio fact reveals itself striking
ly in this awe-inspiring national event. It is
the inseparable mingling in the Irish heart of
loves of God and devotion to country. The idea
that Ireland, their prostrate and fettered mo
ther, was to be the object of this great and
solemn supplication-that their country was
to be served-that in the depth of her bondage
and sorrow she was to be put under the spec
ial prbtection of the Most Sacred Heart of our
Lord-seized upon our people with a magical
and Irresistible influence. It was a theme in
every Irish Catholic home; athoughtie every
Irish Catholic Heart.
Assuredly, it was a sight to stir the soul to
see this people-this modern Israel-bending
en massoe in solemn appeal to the God of their
fathers to look down upon the destinies of
their nation, and placing it under the protec
tion of his Adorable Son. In an age of unbe
lief and cynical doubt and scepticism and
spiritual death or torpor, such a spectacle is a
benefit to the whole world. Its influence can
not be measured; its effec4annot be stayed.
Surely the spirit of religion is vital and power
fol beyond all other influences with this
race of Christian heroes and martyrs;
this race which has evangelized half the re
gions of the globe, and planted the cross of
faith from the rising to the setting son Sure
ly a nation so faithful to God-so unshaken
by affliction-so purified by suffering-is de
stined for no ignoble or inglorious part in the
world's history Let us confide in the protec
tion under which Ireland has, thank God, been
formally and specially placed. The act of
Sunday last is the precursor of our country's
triumph!
The solemn and impressive act of the Church
thus performed throughout Ireland supplied
the occasion of the following beautiful poem,
whiph appeared in a portion of the edition of
the Nation of last week, and is worthy of the
national and Catholic spirit of the author, our
gifted countryman, Denip Florence MacCar
thy :
Wherer beneath the Saving Rood
The nation kneals to pray,
A holy bond of brotherhood
Unites no all today ;
Prom north to south, from east to west,
From cirellng sea to sea,

O Sacred Heart, to Thee!
She bares her breast, which many a wound,
Which many a blow made more,
What time the Martyred Mother swooned
Insensate in her gore.
But, sh, she coould not die, no! no!
One germ of life had she
The love that turned, through weanl. through, wo
O Sacred Heart, to Thee!
She gave her ilghs, she gave her tears,
To Thee, O Heart divine!
She gave her blood for countless years
Like water or like wine;
And now that in her horoscope
A happler fate we see,
She consecrates her future hope,
O Sacred Heart, to Thee!
She cogsecrates her glorious past
Porglorious 'tis, though sad;
Bright, though with many a cloud o'ercst;
Though gloomy, yet how glad I
For through the wilde that souennd her spread.
Bow darksoms they might be.
One light alonag the desert led,
O Sacred Reart, to Thee I
as oeonsecrates her dark despair,
Though brightened from habove
She oesoerates her Patrick's prayer

In one grand chorus, Laod, we pray.
With Heaven, and uarth, and Sea.
To consecrate our land today,
O Sacred Heart, to Thee !
Protestant Liberality.
We gladly make room in our editorial
columns for the following article from the
Golden Age, a paper to whliclh the Catholic
eommunity has reason to be grateful for
many bold and honest words in the cause
of justice. If our Protestant cotempora
ries will imitate the manliness and liber
ality of the Golden Age when an inojustice
is done to their Catholic fellow-cltizens,
we care not how hard they strike us when
we ourselves deserve the whip. Of course,
there are sentiments in this article to which
no Catholic can subscribe, but we gjve it
as a whole, knowing that our readetY will
make the necessary criticism for them
selves:
" In this country, by the theory of our
constitution ans1 the spirit of our laws,
church and state are separated; a great
gulf is fixed betwen them, finally and for
ever.
" And yet questions of religion have al
ways more or less shaken political parties,
and continue to influence political ap
pointments. Not many months ago, our.
legislature, (N. Y.) grew as stormy as the
sea off Halitax, over the. question of ap
propriating public monies to sectarian in.
stitutions. Then, too, the question of the
Bible in our common schools has added fuel
to the same fire. And now the old antago
nism between Protestant and Catholic has
erisen tnow in the Board of Education in
Ne& York.
* : I: v-,rnae-y*r is a sturdy, sub
stanti:n .i . Ionent officer; lie means to do
right as I.- lunderstands it; his sympathies
are with lil ,that is virtunoneus and excellent;
he has a clear headl, onil a clear conscience;
but he is not a non ri'f broad or universdl
charity; he does ii,.t comprelhend the true
American and non-sectarian impartiality
of our constitations and laws; he is a Prot
estant who hates Catholics, an; who ex
presses his religions antipathies In bIs po
litical acts; in short he has had the task of
appointing a Board of education consisting
of twenty-one memburs, and he has named
twenty Protestants, and only one Catholic
-this last being a sick man, absent in
Florida !
" Now, let us weigh this act of our new
and honored chief magistrate. Here is a
city full of Roman Catholics-it Is the
Home of America. It is here that the im
migrant firtlands. It is here that he
brings his children. It is here that we
buld our common schools on the broadest
possible foundation, and beg him to send
to them hIis offspring. It is here that a cer
tain party in the Catholic church, jealous
of the liberalizing effectb of popular edu
cation in unsectarian and secular schools,
oppose the sending of Roman Catholic
children to the pubia schools. It is here
that every possible inducement, therefore,
sheould be held out by Protestanota to the
pareats of ehildrea to seed theml to
school. B t its hers te at fl Have.
meyer ias 1100e the beot *l al
gaet to th ert~rf C8$5Ca.
glory is their equal invitation and advan
tage to all.
" For our part, we believe that our com
mon schools are the feet anchorage of out
American republicanolism. Whatever In
terferes with them, whatever hinders or
cripples their usefulness, whatever limits
their unolversality, whatever takes away or
abridaes their attractiveness to any special
claiie tthe community, is a common det
riiment to all classes.
" But Mayor Havemeyer has new made
it impossible for a self-respecting Catholic
to send his children to the publio schools.
The Roman Catholics have no vestige of
inafluence in the Board of Education. One
man in twenty-one, is merely a vanla voice
and nothing more. This disparity is noth
ing short of mockery. It violates every
fair man's sense of justice. It is an arrow
that overshoots its own chosen mark. It
is a fatal policy which mst teaet against
itself. It Is Protestant intoleroce-which
is the worst form of bigotry known to this
enlightened age.
"Now let us put a case. Suppose that
at the next election in this city the people
shall choose for Mayor a Roman Catholic
instead of a Protestant. This is no foolish
or improbable suanpposition, for this has
happened many times in the past, and is
morally certain to happen many times in
the future. Suppose, tren, after the elec
tion of a Roman Catholio Mayor, he ap
points twenty-one members of the Board
of Education, in the following proportion,
namely, twenty Catholics and oe Protest
ant-the latter being an invalid in pursuit
of health, say at a safe distance in the Yo
semite Valley ! What would be said of
each an eccentricity of religious bigotry in
a municipal officer t What would Protest
ant citizens say? What would Mayor
Havemeyer himself say ?
' He would probably call it an outrage
against public justice and American fair
ness. And he would be right In so stigma
I tizing it. But it is no whit more an ont
;rage to put twenty Catholics and one
Protestant into the Board of Education,
than to put twenty Protestants and one
Catholic. And the same denunciation
which Mayor Havemeyer would be quick
to visit upon one of these acts, we are just
as quick to utter against the other. Mayor
Havemeyer has given to his possible Cath
olic successor a precedent so dangerous
that we rebake it now and here, and de
mand a revision of the Mayor's list, or (if
this be too late,) then we hope to see a
general protest against the Mayor's blon
der."-IBoton Pilot.
SPANISH BENEVOESNTASsOCIATION, Mosrua.
-The Spanish Benevolent Association, com
posed of a large number of our beet and most
respectable Spanish fellow-citizens, celebra
ted their second anniversary yesterday, In a
most appropriate and successful manner. Or
anized in 1871, and being purely benevolent
in its object, the Association hss made rapid
strides, and to-day is one of the largest and
I beat of the kind in the city; the members be
ing zealous anil active, ever ready to do good.
Their first appearance in public was on the oc
casion of the Jubilee in honor of Pape Pinus
IX, but from some unfortunate eause they fail
ed to publicly celebrate their first anniversary.
This year, however, they determined that the
day should not pass withont some proper pub
lic demonstration. In the morning they form
in front of their Hall, on Church sreeb be
low Water, some eighty-six in number, each
member briog on his breast a beanutiful ro
sette of red, yellow and red and the Marshal,
Mr. J. J. Lazo, and his Assistant, Mr. Frank
Rue, mounted on horseback and decorated
with handsome insignia of office. The pro
eession, headed by the Fire Department Brass
Band, then marched to the Cathedral, where
a solemn High Mas" was celebrated by the
Very Rev. Father Pellicer. who at the conole
sion of the services blessed the beautiful new
banner of the Association, and made a few
happy and eloquent remarks.-Meb e Register,

Monday last, wad the centre of attraction tt
sall lovers of refined enjoyment on both sideol
r the "Father of Waters," as the grand Fair foa
I the benefit of the new ehuroh was in progres
the whole time, with unabated interest and a
host of new and startling wonders nightly
This churah, being one of the few gems of
gethic art in the Bouth, or perhaps in the coun
try, a short sketch of, Its history might not
pFrove uninteresting to many readers of the
STAR.
Rev. Father' Bellanger, 8. M., the present
honored pastor, I. himself the designer and
architect of this beautiful strocture, and Mr*
Leonard, of New Orleans, the builder. Taking
charge more than three years ago, on the death
of the loved and revered Father Denis, his pre
decessor, Father Bellanger found the afairs of
the parish environed with many difficulties,
mostly of a pecuniary nature, however, but
from which only the tact and address of the
patient, faithful priest, having the glory of
religion and the spiritual welfare of his flock
at heart, could extricate it. The congregation
is not a rich one, as may be supposed; though
not lacking in seal and fervor; but the old
church, being untenable from age, it was re
solved to build a new one, which should not
only be a source of pride to all Catholiocs, but
also an architectural ornament to the town.
The Rev. Father on assuming control set about
to accomplish this purpose, and in May, 1870,
the corner-stone was laid by his Grace, the
Most Rev, Archbishop. Thenceforward the
work never langnis ed, until it has now reach.
ed a near state of c mpletion. With the pews
and altars and other interior appurtenances
ready to be put in their places at the close of
the Fair, it will be thrown open for divine
worship on the first Sunday'in May next, three
years after the laying of the cornerstone.
The interior ot the churoh, as has bees al
ready stated, is pnrsly gothic, though no ela
borate frescoes grao the walls. The glare
and glitter of paint are nowhere to be seen,
but in their stead is the snown white, rough
stoooo on the massive walls and solid, enduring
ceiliog, groined and arched in the highest
style of art. The roof is supported by two
rows of stately columns, extending on each
side from the entrance to the chancel--spacionus
between and gracefully arched overhead.
Above the main entrance or vestibole is a
beautiful oriol window, which is designed to
admit the light after it passes through the
stained glasse setting of the frams; and another
but smaller window of the same description
overhangs the choir gallery, which latter is
small but very neat, semi-circular in shape and
directly over the rvestibnle. Three bow win
dows and three of the orlol clam will permit
tshe light of day to stream in upon the Sanotu
ary from the rear or east end. The body of
the church will be lighted by fourteen lofty
bow windows, five on a side and four in the
front, or west end, all adorned with stueeo and
the frames set with French glass. Altars, pews
and other appointmente will be of material
and finish to correspond with tbo imposing
grandeur of the whole.
To raise the necessary funds to complete this
beautiful edifice was the object of the late
Fair, and the good people of the town, with
out maeh distinction as to secot, joined hands
with commendable unanimity, and showed by
their hearty support dnriag the week that the
desire to make it a secess pervaded one and
all. The ladles worked with ceaseless energy
a labor of love to them-ably ssisted as they
were bymany generoues friends in New Orleans,
ineluding, among others deserving the men
tion, the sweet singers, Miss Theresa Cannon
sad Miss A. Wagner, and Misses Lirrie Burns
and Emma Doyle.
The Fair opened on Easter Monday night,
with the beautiful religious drama of the
"Chinese Mother," whibh was enacted to a
crowded house, the leading roles being taken
by the Misses Doyle and Brns, and Miss . J.
Forrester, of Almgers. Basin's Esther" was
performed en Tuesday night to aaother large
aeditory, b a number of yoaung sad beautiihl
Cres ladies of new Oresas, bremest amoeg
whom, se i her went is all geod eaterprfsss,

that night the St. Joseph Catholle Benevelnt
Society of Algiers proceeded there in a body,
with colors and regalla, headed by DesnISel's
lIne baud, and were made the recipients of a
neat addres of weloome by Mise M. J. Per
rester, to which a suitable reply was made
on behalf of the Boolety by Mr. M. J. Barrett,
one of the members.
Thursday marked an era in the series of en
tertainments. The juvenile opera of "Laila,'
gotten up expressly for the ocoselon by Mrs.
Sarrasin, of Algiers, and in whloh forty-two
young ladies and missaes partiiopated, was put
upon the stage with fall scenic and transform
ation accessories, and it need hardly be added
was the wonder and delight of all who had the
good fortune to behold it. On Friday evening
the entire fire department attended in a body,
and, not to be behind their compeers of the 8t.
Joseph Society, were also presented with an
eloquent address by Mis Lissle Sarrasin, ex.
pressive of the feeling entertained for the gal
land fire boys by the ladles. A concert, under
direction of Miss Cannon, followed. Satuadsay
witnessed the advent to the Fair of Braneh No.
10 of the Hibernian Association, with a fine
band. A funny drame, entitled the "Enchant
ed Princess," prepared by Miss Mary Gastel,
was rendered this night by some native talent,
and excited so much merriment that almost
by general consent it had to be repeated on
Sunday and also on Monday, the last night of
the Fair. On the latter occasion Miss Cannon
gave some more spelcimens of her line vocal
powers in ballad singing, and seemed to asur
pass all her former efforts to please. When she
sang the simple balled, "Coming thro' the
Rye," her rich, clear, cultivated voice filled the
large body of the churchb with "a concert of
sweet sounds," as melodiously uttered as they
were raptorously received and repeatedly en
cored.
Of the tables at the Fair and their arrange
ment little need be said here. They were all
that art and nlogenuity, money and pains,
guided by refned taste and superior judgment
in decoration could make them. The receipts,
when the result is announced, will doubtless
hbe correspondingly large, and the winners of
the many$rizos happy.
To say, in concladingthis sketch, that a more
enjoyable week, combining pleasure and good
works, was rarely or never before sean in
Algiers, woueld be a truthful, though, perhaps,
faint expression of the feeling entertalined by
all.
A gentleman on Camp street has received
from the "Nun of Kenmare" the following
graoeful and grateful acknowledgment of =50,
