A STRAN'GELY FOOLISH CLERGYMAN.
It appears that the Rev. Mr. Putnam, of
Paun's Episcopal Church, on Jersey City
Heights, has got into trouble with hiis con
gregation, and-rom the nature of his difli
lulties it is plain that the hapless clergy
man'is not fit for the ministry of a falshion
able church. It is not alleged that hlie is
immoral. It is not pretended that hie is
unorthodox. His opinions in regard to the i
- use of millinery in the service of the altar i
are notdiatastefnl to his parishioners. The I
fatal defect in his character is that he loves a
d"poor" company. He has a propensity for
nosing round among the poor people of his I
congregation and finding eat how they I
stand the hard times, instead of devoting I
himself to pastoral visits among the rich I
members. He has an unhealthy and mor- I
bid desire for visiting the sick; and the t
sicker they are and the more they suffer t
from want, the more he seems to enjoy their I
company. This diseased imagination isal
ways urging him to go in search of the halt C
and the blind, and pilot them to hospitals. I
In fact he is behaving in a very aggrava
tiflg fashion towards the eminently e
respectable people who pay him a large e
salary. The consequence of his loss of time p
in bad company was that he had to neglect t
study, and grew careless in the compnsition t
of his sermons. He ceased to cling the gay ii
and festive metaphor with his accustomed a
grace and ease; the lofty hyperbole no h
longer leaped in exuberant vitality along p
the margin of his flowing eloquence; the P
fitful flashes of fancy played not amoog the
mountain peaks of his religious thought; fl
the voice of the bold personification failed a
to echo in the sounding passages of his ex- P
hortations. He neglected the sprightly a
syneedoche for the sick bed. He troubled ii
himself about beef soup for beggars rather a
than about flowers of rhetoric. He set a a
good turn done to neighbor, above a pretty 1
turn of expression. The result was that d
his congregation missed the glittering gen- r
erality and the polished platitude with n
whiob their Sabbath had been cheered so n
long. They felt that they were falling be-. e
hind other churches that paid no more than iI
they did for a clerical orator, and their n
complaints were loud and bitter. The un e
fortunate pastor has spent the best years of t
his life in their service, anti is not well v
prepared to be turned out to look for a new
situation; but he is willing to submit to r
whatever trials are sent upon him. He con- a
fesses with tears that his sermons are not p
as good as they ought to be, but he promisee a
amendment though not pledging himself to c
give up his low associations with the sick d
Mr. Cox, one of the vestrymen said, that a
a number were willing to overlook occa- a
asonal deficiencies in the sermons, but a
others were not-so lenient, and at least half r
of the vestry thought that Mr. Putnam b
should resign, and one vestryman had said a
that if Mr. Putnam did not resign, he (the t
vestryman) would seek another church. a
In December the vestry had several a
meetings to talk over the question of ask- a
ing Mr. Putnam to resign, and at two of
them Mr. Putnam was present. At the
second of these Mr. Harrison said, that
the only remedy he could devise was
Mr. Putnam's resignation, on hearing
which Mr. Putnam, in tremulous tones, o
said that if Iy so doing lie could bring t
about any good to St. Paul's parish, or pre- r
vent evil from happening to it, he would i
immediately resign. When his presence t
became Ithe occasion of a division of the
church, it was time for him to go. No action t
was taken at the time, but now it is the in- f
tention of the " lighly-respectable " to r
bring msatters to an issue. and the proba
bilitles are that in a few days Mr. Putnam s
will be forced to leave a church which he
has built up and labored for during the
past 17 years.-N. Y. Sin..
FRRHNCIH FINANCES -8ome figures of the
projected budget are quite Interesting. The
expenditure of the country is estimated, in
round nunmbers, at $560,0(X)0,Ki); the reve
nue at $t~88,0(0h,000 But in France, of late 1
years, the revenue is usually underestima
ted. With the fall of the empire, deficits r
became a tradition in France, and the
yearly surplus has been almost invariably
far in excess of the estimates. The finan- i
cial health of the country-in spite of the
depressed condition of business-is so ro
bust that the Bank of France refuses to aso- I
cept gold except atdiscount, preferring its
own notes to coin. This state of things in
vanquisbed France contrasts sharply with
the financial poaition of victorious Ger
many. The Kaiser acknowledged in his
speech at the opening of the Reichbstag, on
Thursday last, a deficiency of over $6.000 -
000, which, to judge from the experience of
past years, will be considerably increased be
fore the yearja out. The old Kaiser'a speech
was tame and melancholy. Its only really
interesting feature wars eoefldence express
ed in the preservation of the peace of Eu
rope; yet the largest expenses are still in
curred for war purposes.
-1The national debt of France, due ex
lo~usively to the wars in which she has been
engaged since 1848, will absorb this year
about @150,000,000; the pensions to inva
lid soldiers, widows, and orphans, t22,000
00); the army 110,00U,000. In this way
just one-half of the whole revenue of the
country is sacrificed. Had it not been for
the Crimean, the Italian, the Mexican, and
the Oerman ware, and the present supposed
necessity of keeping a large standlog army,
France would not owe a cent in the world.

A WHISPER HEARD 143 MILES OFF.
Prof. Bell, the inventor of the telephone,
comes from the staid old city of the witches
-Salem. He is professor of " vocal physio
logy" in the Boston University. About
five years ago be first began to think about
the possibility of the transmisslon of sound
by telegraph, and the idea took possession
of him completely. His invention had so
far taken form eighteen months ago, that
with the assistance of a practiceal electri
clan, Mr. Watson, he began to experiment.
The first time the practical success of
the telephone was demonstrated to the sat
isfaction of others was on Oct. 9, 1876,
when an experiment was made over the
private wire of the Walworth Manufactur
inog Company of Cambridge running to
Boston, two miles distant. The telephone
then spoke for itself, and the conversation
of the operator in Cambridge could be dis
tinctly heard at the Boston end of the line.
An interesting dialogue took place, the
speakers talking in their ordinary key.
One of the experiments, which occurred
on Jan. 21 on a wire running from Boston
to Salem, was eminently gratifying in its
results. Not only every word spoken an
Boston, but even thetones and inflexions of
the several voices were accurately transmit
ted and readily recognized by those at the
Salem end of the line. Other experiments
demonstrated the fact that a lady in Mal
den could sing " The Last Rose of Sum
mer," and every note be heard inihe room
at Boston. The sound was perfectly clear,
and had about the same effect as if the lis
tener were at the rearof a concert hall, say
100 feet away from the singer. Subsequent
trials showed that laughter, applause or
Instrumental musie could be equally well
transmitted. In the case of the latter, not
only the key could be transmitted but also
the quality of the music. A violin could
be distinguished from the violoncello.
The greatest distance that has been van
quished by the telephone is 143 miles
from Boston to North Conway N. H. The
most recent improvements made on the in
strument do away with batteries altugeth
er, and permanent magnets are now em
ployed instead, the electric wave used in
transmitting the sounds being generated by
the voice itself. This is regarded as a very
important step in advance, as the bother
and expense of keeping batteries in order
has been the great drawback to the em
ployment of the instrument for private pur
The wonderful little instrument of whose
future value to civilization the inventor is
sanguine, consists of a powerful compound
permanent magnet, to the poles of which
are attached ordinary telegraph coils of
insulated wire. In front of the poles
surrounded by these coils of wire, is
a diaphragm of iron: A mouthpiece, whose
function is to converge the sound upon this
diaphram, substantially completes the ar
rangement. The operation of the instru
menut is thus described by Prof. Bell : The
motion of steel or iron in front of the poles
of a magnet creates a current of electricity
in coils surrounding the poles of the mag
net, and the duration or tiis current of
electricity coincides with the durartion of
the motion of tihe steel or iron morved or
vibrated in the proximrty of the magnet,
When the human voice causes the diaph
ragm to vibrate, electrical undulations
are induced in the coils around the magnets
precisely similar to the undulations of the
air produced by the voice. The coilsare
connected with the line wire, and the in
dulatione induced in them travel through
the wire, and passing through the coils of
another inttrument of similar constrnctio-i
at the other end of the line are again re
solved into air undulations by the diaph
ragm of this instrnment. The voltaic bat
tery is entirely dispensed with. The line
wire may be or any given length, provided
the insultation be good. Prof. Bell further
says that soft tones can be heard across the
wires even more distinctly than loud utter
ances, even a whisper being audible.
What is to be Done on the Fiftieth Anniversary of
the Episcopacy of Plus IX.
IN. Y. Sunday Cltl.qu.i
The fifrieth anniversary ,,f tile elevation
of Pius IX. to theepisrcopacy, which occurs
on the 21st of May next, will be commemo
rated on that day in Iome in an unusually
imposing manner. It is intended to present
to the Holy Father on that occasion the
united offerings of the faithful throughout
tihe world as a tribute of unchangeable of
fection and devotion, and in order, also, to
relieve the wants tf those who are suffering
poverty for conscience sake. Mrs. Gun.
Sherman, having consented to co operate
with a committee of European ladies, has
made an nprern: (approved by the hierarchy)
to Aurerican Catholics to assist in the work.
Collections have already been taken up
in this city, and in one church (St. An
drew's, DUane street) tihe sum of $1,000 has
been contributed by the congregation.
There will be a great procession of pil
grims from all pointsof Christendom to the
Eternal City to participate in the anniversa.
ry of the Pope's golden wedding and though
no organized movement has yet been made
by American Catholics to swell the throng, it
is understood that members of the Church
are making preparations to visit Italy for
the purpose. A number of Canadian Catho
lics will leave Montreal in a body, en route
for Rome,in the middle of April. On their
arrival in this city, they will be received by
representatives of the Catholio Union of
St. Michael's Society and of the Society of
St. Vincent de Paul. The members will
remain together until they obtain an audi
ence with and the benediction of Pius IX.
The party will consist of 100persons, each
of whom will contribute 6300 to meet ex
The Canadians expect to be joined in
this city by several Americans; and all
others speaking the English language who
share in the loyal aentiments they enter
tain will be welcome to accompany them.
The celebration on the coming 21st of May
is designed to be a continuation of the
many previous personal jubilees that have
been vouchsafed to honor the Pontiff
during an extraordinarily long life and
Under the direction of Mrs. Gen. Sher
man the movement in this country is as
suming great magnitude. The lady is
constantly receiving letters asking for in

THE DEAF AND MUTE.
ARTICULATION AND LIP-RiADING, AS
itUGHT AT THE CLARKE INSTITUTE.
S[. T. World.
Comparatively few people are aware ofthe
I proficiency attained by deaf-mates in the
t art of speaking and understanding speech
I -or, as they themselves term it, articula
I tion and lip-reading---and fewer still bave
S any ide of the extent to which pereons con
Sgenitally deaf and dumb, or others In that
condition through accident or disease, can
be and are very frequently educated. The
f ninth annual report of the "Clarke Institu
tion for Deaf-Mutes," at Northampton,
Mass., gives a very interesting account'of
the operations of that school. For It is not
an asylum, nor, as commonly understood,a
charitable Institution. It isa school espec
lally adapted for the education of semi
deaf and semi mute pupils, but open to
those who are wholly deprived of the facil
ities of speech and hearing. The Stae of
Massachusetts makes an annual appropri
ation for the education of deaf-mutes, and
the Clarke Institution receives a certain
numober of these children. But it takes no
child under the age of five years, the ear
liest age at which they can be taught. The
number of pupils in the institute hase been
greater this year than the last, but the de
mand for admission is largely beyond the
means of the society, and other establish
ments for the educraion of the deaf-mutes
are constantly coming into existence. Dur
iug the first year children are taught to lay
sticks and rings in imitation of designs
gives by the teacher, and are taught wea
ving, card-pricking and drawing. Then
words are taught, then writing, then con
structing them into sentences, and so on
progressing from year to year until the
seventh year, when the common course of
study ends and the pupils are in the ele
ments of zoology, physiology, philsophy i
and physical geography. The studies of
the high course comprises those above men
tioned, with algebra, geometry, botany, ,
geology, chemistry, astronomy, history, t
psychology, drawing and other accom
plishments. But the marvel of the educa
tion of deaf mutes is the rapidity and facility -
with which they acquire the art of articula
tion and lip-reading. Articulation is taught
by imitation. The deaf child is induced
through the sense of sight and touch to
attempt the imitation of each position and I
movement of the vocal or ans necessary
for the utterance of linguistic sonnds.
Lip reading is the ability to read from
the movements of a person's features
-particularly of his lips-what he
is saying. At first the words ut
tarred for a deaf mute to read are pro
nounced slowly and in an exaggerated
manner; then more rapidly until the pupil
can read from the lips of a person speaking
in the ordinary way. The prevailing idea
is that deaf and dumb persons speak to one
another only on their fingers. How as
tonished, therefore, would some be to see
a community of these safflicted beings talk
ing to one another in the normal fashion.
It sounds monstrous to hear from a deaf
and dumb girl that the girls working in the 1
shop with her declare that she talks plaiply.
and as much as to read a letter from a deaf
person, saying that he finds h.imself able
to follow the clergyman of his church is
the latter reads the lessons. If the deaf
ale not made to hear and the daumh to
speak, they are at least plovided with a
marvellous substitute. One young lady gra
duate writes to theinatitution to say that
she has made the acquaintrnoce of several
persone during the year, and among them
a gentleman of whom she says. "I can now
read his lips much more reabdly titan six
months ago. lie understards me well," a
declaration which shows what practice will
do and excites a kindly interest in the pos
sible future of the young maiden
"Thou art a blessed fellow," said Prince
Ilal to Poins, " to think as every man
thinks; never a man's thought in the
world keeps theroadway better than thine."
The praise which Shakespeare puts in
the mouth of the English Prince, could fall
as properly upon the heads and sound as
sweetly in the ears of a large class of our
brethren in the faith, who receive from the
world the dubious compliment of being
" enlightened " Catholics. Their enlighten
ment is a peculiar Rift. coming as it does,
from the Region of Dgrkneas instead of de
scending from the -' Father of Light." An
enlightened Catholic, according to the clas
sification of the world, fs one who knows but
half of the truths of religion and practices
less--who knows the laws of the Church,
but applies them, as it suits his conveni
ence, or as it pleases the world, with which
his thoughts are always in harmony. He
lives in mortal terror of falling into any
practices of devotion which the Church has
blessed, but at which the world sneers as
superstitious. He won't believe, though
he has God's Word for it, that a mortal sin
will send his soul to perdition, because, this
" enlightened " world has long since dis
carded this folly of saints and penitents.
He accepts as much of Christian morality
as the world approves. Passion, he believes
is an evil thing, when it injures health,
destroys reputation, deprives him of the
comforts of life, or lowers him in the social
scale. Upon these evils of sin the world
frowns-this excess the world condemns.
And since he thinks as every other man
thinks, with the submission of a pagan
slave, our enlightened Catholic abhors
such sine, not because God is offended, or
his soul is imperilled by their commission,
but because they are not respectable and
are not allowed by the laws of good society.
There may be other sins which the Deca
logue most solemnly forbids, or the laws of
God's Church prohibits. But the "en
lightened" Catholic, whose intelligence the
world praises, " keep dark" about them
lie doesn't want to know them. Public opi
nion is the great god whom he worships,
and that divinity knows nothing about
them. So be detides that the fasting of
Lent, annual confession, the Pschal com
i munion and special seasons of prayer and
self denial are ecclesiastical foDperies,
Sspiritual novelties which are wholly unne
cessary to save a man of so much wisdom as
he possesses. Like the English nobleman
be has come to the conclusion that God will
think twice before he condemns a man of
superior attainments. Like Poins he keeps
the roadway of the world, and most proba
bly in theend stumbles and falls at the end
of the journey. The light of his wisdo-a
does not serve him much, when the dark
ness of death gathers around him.
An unenlightened Catholic, a blind bigot,
who never looks at spiritual things through
the word spectacles and never mensur
them with its lying yard stiack, is the very
opposite of all this. He has a custom of
as opening his eyes to the fall light of divine
teaching. He never attempts to dividethat
light with the spectrum of his private
Judgment or to refract by the thick medium
ie of human passion. Whatever the Church
ie commands, he receives with entire, unques
,h tioning obedience, because God has ap
t- pointed it as the sole guide of his soul. Of
re course, for his folly of listening always to
G- God's voice, and for refusing to be the slave
it of the world, he is denounced as a trouble
u some blockhead. He won't consent when
ie Ash Wednesday marks his brow with the
i. dust of death and the ashes of self-denial,
, to eat and drink, as the world did on the
If eve of the deluge.
It God deliver from death those Catholics,
a who are so enlightened as to be, in lang
u- nage IA bhas the odcr of paganism,
too liberwl for their creed, either in the ao
o ceptance of its doctrines or conformity
with its practices. Never was stupidity
f so gross or so awful in its punishment as
- the mental state of those Catholics who
d have neither honesty nor manliness enough
a to try and act up to what they know
u to be their cree.:, or intellect enougL
- to nuderstanrd trhe consistency ,f all its
a parts and thi incornsistency of their posi
I tion. They have dropped out of the reach
- efall spiritual peace, and live in a hazy twi
e light-all sin in practice, and half heresy in
- speculation. An enlightened Catholic who
a professes on one band that the Church is
- his appointed teacher, and on the other de
clines to take notice of the counsel, admo
a nition and the solemn admonition of the
Church, may obtain the dishonoring respect
of the world that hates his creed, but lie is
the greatest fool that crawls between hea
l ven and earth.
F The real object' of education is to give
children resources that will endure as long
as life shall last; habits that will ameliorate,
not destroy; occupation that will render
sickness tolerable, solitude pleasant, age
venerable, life more dignified and useful,
and death less terrible.-Sidney Smith.
