TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY.
POREIGN.
ITALY-Romse, Jan. 24.-The Chamber of
Deputies to-day passed the clerical abuses bill,
by a vote of 150 yeas to 100 nayes. The Cham
her voted a grant for the expenses to be inour.
red by the partiipastion of Italy in the Paris
Exhibition of 1878.
Rosse, Jan. 24.-In the Chambers during the
debate against abases of power by the clergy,
the Minister of Worship and Justice declared
the law concerning the Papal guarantee was
po]emn and unassailabls; nlso the pledge giv
en to the Catholic world of the Pope's complete
independence in the exercise of his spiritual
powers. Italy ought to regard the mainte.
nance of this law as a qnestlon of honor and
of loyalty toward Europe.
The following, by cable, we give for what
they are worth, reminding our readers that
telegrams come altogether through Protestant
sources: 'Last Sunday and Monday the Pope
had fainting spells. The Pope has privately
notified four Italian, two French, two Spanish,
and two Austrian eoleseiasties that they are
to be nominated Cardinals at the next Con
aastory.
onme, Jan 26.--The most important clause
In the clerical abuses bill makes It a penal
-ofmese to publish writings proceeding from
any cleriecal authority censuring the laws of the
State, Tbe speeches of the Pope are evidently
aimed at ln this provision. Clerical journals
are furious.
FItAscI -Le Presse says that Count de
Chambord will soen issue a manifesto. The
retirement of Duke de Cases from the Minis.
try is probable at an early day owing to a
diagreemwet with Minister Simou.-The
French papers report that unusual activity is
shown by the Germars just now in pushing
ahead the defences of Metz, Strasburg, and
other frontier towns.
GaRMANY.-The German press have lately
attacked France's Eastern poliov which they
claim to be inspired by unfriendly feelings to
Germany. The killing of a German sailor at
Smyrna by a French seaman has afforded more
food for criticisms. The French Government
has ordered an inqniry and the German Gov
ernment has informed the French Government,
that, despit4he newspaper talk, its course is
not considered as unfriendly.
T'KzY.-On-the 20th the Porte's refusal
to accept the terms offered by the representa
tives was communicated to the Conference
which at once broke up. Having thus set the
whole of Europe at defiance, Turkey followed
up her bold policy by informing Servia that
the Armistice would not be renewed but that
unless she submitted by March 1st the Turks
would march on Belgrade. It is reported that t
the enthusiasm of the Russian people for war
has died out and that now the Czar finds him
self in the humiliating position of either sat-
lag his own brave words and oft repeated de
clarations of a vigorous policy with reference
to Turkey or of going to war without proper
preparations and with almost a certainty of
defeat. Northoote, Chancellor of the Exche
quer, made a speech in Liverpool on the 24Lrh.
SHe said peace was essential to the interests of
E-ngland. The Government deeply sympa. c
izes with the oppressed, but intervention in n
the internal affairs of a foreign country was 8
a step requiring grave consideration, lae
strenuously denied that the Government ever 5
had any intention of going to war on behalf of ti
Turkey or wereeverintlnenced by an unworthy ti
Jealousy of Russia. He considered the Turks o1
acton ill-advice, and have undertaken a g'rave f
responsibility in rejecting the friendly propo- it
sals of the conference; but Turkey bad, in the no
rejection, done what she in her free right 01
thought to be for the best, and he was unable ol
to understand the language of those who appan al
rently desired to turn the conduct of Turkey te
into a sauss of offense to Europe. at
Berlin, Jan. 2.--It is noderstood that after hi
Igoatieff has presented his report Russia will tt
address a communication to the powers, ex- ni
plaining her position and appealing to their C
sense ot honor to resent the affront offered to m
all Europe by the Porto, either by collective fa
action or by empowering Russia to act for nu
them. If this efobrt fails, Russia will next th
appeal to the allied empires; should they not Ti
make a satisfactory response, then it is affirm
ed she will act alone. It is reported that Ras- hi
ien bas given orders to prepare for calling out p1
hird division of the reserves, which includes D
all able bodied men. Turkey is reinforcing. b
Mxrco.-President Diaz is now in posses- Li
Sion fl the entire republic, excepting Cina- is
leaand Chihuahua. Diaz's administration is
conducted with prudence and wisdom; the

in which the proposed mode of procedure of
sending for persons and papers was oharacter
of ized as indecent and against proprieties and

by the opposition of what was termed the

V, The House Committee to investigate naval
id affairs report against impeaching Robeson,
* Secretary of the Navy, but do not vindicate

d past.
Wells and Anderson were before the House
bt Committee on Privileges on the 20th. Wells
it made a most unfavorable impression as to his
it veracity. He did not know how many votes
a Tilden got, or how many votes were deducted
y from Tilden, or who carried the State on the
face of the returns, and was all through as in
e nocent, ignorant and bland as the heathen
SOhinee. Mr. Field pressed him very closely,
and brought his rascality into bold relief.
e Both parties remain under arrest till the ar
i rival of Kenner and Casanave, when action
a will at once be taken by the House to compel
e them to tarnish the retsrns and answer qaes
y tlons.
S C B. DeBerry, lately telegraph operator at
Tallahassee, Fla, was examined last Thursday.
o He testified to knowledge of telegrams to the
a following effect: "Secretary to btearns: We
are absolutely sure of so many votes (did not
remember number) and most have Florida,
South Carolina and Louisiana by fair means, or
a otherwise." From same to same: "Send courier
to each country; they most be made to show a
majority for Hayes "
Same to same: "Have seen the Prsident and
Secretary. Money and troops will be sent."
Wituess could not remember the exact words
and declines to answer certain questions as
would criminate him under Florida laws.
Probably he will be held in contempt.. He also I
said that a dispatch had been banded ham for t
transmission to Z. Chandler, signed by Gov. t
Stearni, saying in effeot : "We caunct o rry the a
State for Hales unless we have troops and
money immediately. a
FLOroDA.-Tallahassee, *Jan. 23.-Yeaterday L
Gov. Drew approved an act of the Legislature
requiring the Board of Canvassers to make a
canvas, of the electoral vote in accordance t
with the decision of the Supreme Court in the
ease of Blouhom vs. the Secretary of the State. ,
decided in January. 1874. and in the case of
Drew, decided December 23, 1876. In obedience n
to thel law the board met to-day. Attorney
General Roney having been of counsel for the q
Democratic electors, declined to act, and Mr.b
Carley, Comminsioner of Lands and Immigra- t,
tion, was designated in his place. The oau
vass was then gone into, and all the returns t
found to be regular were counted, and footed
up: 24 434 for the Tilden electors, and 24 3.10 el
for the Hayes electors. B

y The Socalled "Conversion " of a Catholic Congrega
tion to Protestontism m Rome, New York.
- Referring to the conduct of some rebellions
~- Catholics in the city of Rome, New York,
e- which the Protestant journals have magnified
d into the " conversion of a whole congregation
r. of Catholics to Protestantism," the New York
t Catholic Reiew, of the '27th January, says:
n THosl " GnERMAN ROMAN CATHOLICS "
As it is not on every day of the week that a
il Protestant Episoopallan bishop can buy up a
t, church and congregation with the privilege of
e parading his purchase as a " conversion from
t Popery," we can hardly wonder much that
e Bishop Huntiogton's recent specalation has
* not yet ceased to afford matter for pleasant
e cackle in various quarters. The cackling of
geese, as we all learned in early youth, saved
a .anaient Rome once on a time, and we inoline
" to believe that the memor~y of that anserine
exploit has suggested the tone of most of the
comments with which the Episcopalian and
d some of the other sectarian journals have
a sought to disguise the real nature of the tran
- saotion in our York State Rome up in Oneida
county. One of these organs draws a touching
picture of the evangelical fidelity with whiol
this little band of zealous Catholics withstood
all the efforts of tusir pastor and their bishop
to withdraw them from their location in the
I midst of lagerbier saloons and the freight
sheds of the Central railway, and to plant
them in a more desirable spot. They were
u onwilling, says this chronicler, to have this
wicked place entirely without a witness for
God, and their sense of their duty toward the
frequamnters of the saloons made them deaf to
all such pernicious entreaties. That sorely, is
a very pathetic picture! But as it happens to
t be true that the proposed ohurch was within an
r easy fifteen minutes' walk of the old one, and
that, rather than obey, these rebels have for
six or seven years done without religious ser
vices in the lagerbier quarter, the effort to
represent them as martyrs to religious zeal
does not stemtn an altogether successfnl one.
Now thatLB:shop Hunnlugton has trtem in
charge, they will e able with av'er) small ex
penditure of time anti muscular energy to make
the sormoul a Ilelre passing interlude between
two lagers, which seems to have been all
along the object rf their noble ambition.
another of the Episcopalian journals in
sinuates that it was the "English-sb,eaking part
of tite oougregaston " winu separated from
these ,new aceessions to the Hountington flock,
and apparently wishes to force the conclusion
that there was asortof race-sobism-adificulty
between the Irish and German Cat'olisce. Toat
insinuation appears to have no ftundation to
fact. The congregation as a whole was Ger
man, and so was its pastor, Father oShmldt, o
who carried with him to the ney cabolrh three
quarters of his people. Not all, even of the re
bels, remained obstinate In their disobedience;
from time to time stragglers have re entered
the Church and made their peace on the usual
terms. As for the rest of them, they seem to have $1
failed for years to understand their position, a
and it was not until after the failure of repeated e
efforts on their part to be acknowledged by the of
Bithop of Albany that the pressure of their
caurcu debt, united with the habit of per.
versity induced by long rebellion, made them is
lend a toady ear to the suggestion that if they t57
would sell both themselves and their church a 1a
purchaser was ready. Such a step as that of To
actually cutting themselves cff from the Cath
olic Church did not, we may be sure. occur to
them as one possible to be taken when firs tel
they inserted the thin end of the wedge of di- he
obedience six years ago. Tl'ey thought it was
merely a uoesbon of two Catholic churches in- 'i
stead of one, andt that though they had allowed
themselves to insult their bishop when he came bu
to Rome to dedicate the church which they re
fused to enter, yet that he would he quite will- h"s
ing to accept another at theilr hiadl when onue c(0
they were reody to older it to lh!u Even the ev0
fact that no priest would lay t ie corner-estone wi
of their new church, and that a 'Protestant in
minister lad to be ivittd to perform that t
ceremony seems not to have undeceived them
When their building was tiushed they rent a
wold to the bishop that they wore ready for a
pastor. Of course they got none, andt then the-y
altered the tone of their appeal. In laying the
cornerstone they had ostentatiously placed NO'
within it certain un-Catholio documents, ex- M
pressive of their then attitude of disrespect to t
the coustituted authorities of theChurch. This I'ra
corner-stone they now removed, disposed of its
objectionable contents, informed the Bishop
that they had done so, and expressed the hope
that be would now send a priest. While yet 1
their case was under deliberation, they secured thi
the services of a pretended priest, who said 1
what was called a mass in German for a few yes
Sundays and then disappeared from among 7
them. A second-a suspended Swiss or Pros- per
sian-came next, and also departed after a 7
brief stay. Meanwhile their numbers were ¶
gradually lessening by desertion to Father 1
Schmidt's congregation, and the pressure of the '7
debts contracted by building grew heaver wlh
daily. Their appeal to the bishop brought no p
result except the advice to sell their church 150
and join the other congregation, after having p
by public penance satisfied for the long anid 7.0(
grievous scandal they had given. That, proba- p
bly, is what would have happened in the end, 3
If the evil one to whose suggestions they had o
so long lent a willing ear, had not put a most the
tempting bait before them. The Episcopalians a
we uid buy the church, providing the congrega. eea
tion were among the fixtures. The Chopght
was each a happy one, both buyers and smllers the
so mutually amiable, that the transfer was
finally brought aboat after some preliminary
" iMniatotlon of which e an gueas the por- l
Tag- port from the tone of the address made theml on
the day of their reception by Bllihop IIunting
ton. T'Ihey had not ceased, he told them, to be
one Catholics. although they had becoume Protest
Irk ants. lThey had now entered the real, genuinm.
bed Simon-pnre Catholio Church. To be faithful
members of it, the chief preliminary was to re
ion nonne allegiance to the Pope-an easy thing
irk for people who bad lived sears in rebcllito-.
and to cease to invoke the Mother of CGd.
What could be easier And so the farce was
solemnly enacted, and the chief performer got
great glory wherever the nature of the case
it could be successfully disgnised as tragedy, or
Sa even as serious melodrama. But snrely it
of ought not to be eo hard to make people of
0ra1 ordinary intelligence understand that the his
tat tory of the past three centuries has been re
as Deating ever since a Pope refused to secure
ant England to the Church by allowing its king to
of live in disobedience to her laws and yet to call
red himself her son. There is room outside the
ne Church tor all who choose to disobey-withbin
ins her fold there is none, either forking, or priest,
he or layman.
V BUSINESS FAILURES OF 187g.
EVIDENCE OF TaL COUNTRY'd RETURN TO A
g o80UND AND IIrALT/Y FINANCIAL CON DITION.
oh
d The annual circular just issned by the Mer
c pantile Agency (Dun, Barlow and C'o.) throws
ht much light upon the business casualties of the
nt past year and the prospects of business in the
near future. Notwithstanding the financial
'e disasters of the past four years, and the gloom
lt and depression which have attended the oonn
r try from 1873 downward, there are many
things whioh should bring comfort for the I
is present and hope for the future. The authors I
of the circular say it is undeniable that the i
o past year has witnessed a marked improve
d ment in the value of many leading staples, as I
ir compared with the prevalling prices in 1875. 1
It is equally a fact that, in extent of profitable I
i trade, there has been a perceptible gain, while
al in many branches of business a much larger
sonumber have, in 1676, added to their available
surplus than during the year preceding. Nor
should it be forgotten that while the year gone
is by shows an augmentation of business failures, I
it. lso exhtibits asatisfactory increase in the
I wealth of the country. "Cotton, grain, sugar, e
tobacco, gold, silver, petroleum and numerous
other resources of this great continent have i
breen produced in quantities enoticien'" to yield s
$1,000 000." 1X becomes a matter of sincere o
tconigratulation that, while the producing power s
of toe nation has thus been exhibiting itself, h
nth peopll, have alearly demonstrated by a is
'y levei.lig of iumportations and restricted pur- p
chases, of both douwetic and foreign goods that tt
they have learned the lesson of wise economy. at
Looking at tile business failures of 1576. the n,
circular stlows the number to have been 1.352 n
treaerr than in 1o75, but, the liabilities are it
$10 942 :67 less to the former than in the latter cc
year. The failures were 9,092 in 1876 as against w
7,740 in 1875. The liabilities in 176 aggregated ni
$191t117,756, while those of the year preceding to
amounted to '201 061t 333. The following is an tt
exhibit of the financial disasters in busineqp o
circles for the past four years: e

According to the circular the business disas- th
ters of :he past year have fallen with greater or
heaviness upon the New England and Middle do
Statns than upon other sections of the country. an
