It is now claimed that Grant's nomina

"Whether General Graut could, as presi
dent, protect these pr people in their
rights is not so much the question," ingeni
ously adds the modest originator of the
brilliant assumption, "but they think he
wiil." And believing this the poor deluded
darkies will, according to the same organ,
"wade through fire and water" to cast their
votes for the third term. After which they
will be left to learn from 6ad experience
that they have simply trusted in an idol of
The confession is drawn from the third
termers as aching teeth are drawn from
festered jaws, that the meetings at Music
and Farwell halls, were "very considerable
demonstrations." "But," they add, as a
sort of palliative of the sting of such a con
fession. "They consist on part of Demo
crats, who hate Grant because he whipped
their rebel confederates,' and in part, of Re
publicans who were curious to learn why
the man who saved the country was ineli
gible as a ruler of it." This view, indus
triously promulgated by the tools of third
termers; but the fact remains, nevertheles?,
that without the aid And earnest co-operation
of the men who gathered at Farwell
and Music halls on "Wednesday night, the
Republican ticket, with Grant at
the head of it, cannot carry Illinois.
To protest against the disfranchisement
of Cook county, was the primary object of
these vast assemblages of Republican
voters; but the representative men of that
party, present from all parts of the Union,
were blind indeed, and inexcusably blind,
if they failed to see in such an outpouring
of the Republican masses and in the ex
pression of sentiment that followed, a deep
seated hostility to third termism, and a
firmly grounded determination that the bal

of the Union, hostile to Grantism, shall
not be disfranchised through the ma
chinations of man who could never
escape the designation, won from
Republicans, of "Dirty Work Logan,"
The Blaine organs are protesting, with
notable earnestness, that the adoption of
the "unit rule" in the Chicago convention
would be an unprecedented outrage. It
was not adopted, they insist, by the nation
al conventions of 1303, 1372 or 1370; "and
any attempt to impose it upon the conven
tion of 1330, because one of the candidates
may profit by it, would be a piece ot ras
cally trickery to which Republicans ought
not to submit." But what care tho third
termers for this? If they can in any man
ner by profit by the adoption of the
unit rule; the rule will not only
be adoptsd, but the Logans of
the convention will stand up on their seats
and swear, by all the heathen gods, that
their course has the sanction of uniform
usage and precedents without number. The
Blaine men will, therefore, if they are wise,
act upon the assumption, from the start,
that the third termers intend to "do them
dirt." Every opening that promises a
Blaine vantage-ground will be securely
closed up, fairly and honorably, or foully
and unwarrantably the character of the
manner and means employed being deter
mined by the necessity of the occasion or
the end sought to bo accomplished.
Washington, I). C, May 20th, 18S0.
Agricultural operations cease on tho
mountainside when the eruption begins ot
the crater above. So congress ought to
suspend business or the attempt to do busi
ness when the presidential conventions be
giu. All the legislation consummated be
tween June 2d and election day in Novcm
uer, will be very little, and that little very
bad. There is a disposition within the last
lew diiys to ignore tho house proposition
for adjournment on the 31st of- this month,
un l prolong tho sebsion into tho month of
June. This may mean July, or August. I
still hope both parties will agree to get
away by the end of tho month, but there is
n) certainty of it.
The appropriation bills are well advanc
ed, except tho general deficiency bill, and
that will probably be reported to-d;.y. It
stays behind tho rust, as one trusty person
behind a picnic party, to pick up whatever
little valuables may havo bei-u left by oth
ers. As the toll will nw bo reported it
will be complete in itself, but chlvr in
house or senate it will receive amendments
to cover what was unintentionally dropped
from other bills or is found at the lust mo
mcnt of the session to be necessary. There
is never, or hardly ever, uny debate on this
Kxcept these appropriation bills I don't
believe tiny important measure, with the
possible exception of Senator Bayard's
special deputy marshal's bill and Senator
Morgan's joint rule for counting tho clec
toral vote, will puss, such if the session is
prolonged. The former re-enacts the pro
vision as to deputy marshals which the
president vetoed two months ago in the im
mediate deficiency bill, and the latter pro
vides that both houses must concur in or
der to throw out a single set of returns from
a state, and that both houses must also con
cur in order to receive a set of returns
whenever there is more than one set. These
arc both party measures so considered by
the Democrats and will almost certainly
Of the Democratic presidential situation,
as seen here, nothing can be said except
that Ticdcn seems to have the lead so far.
There may be doubt as to what aspirant is
second, but I think on the whole that Han
cock has more strength than any other.
This is merely the Washington view, how
ever. There are no indications beyond the
fact that Pennsyvania will present his name
and three other states ore pledged to him,
that he is or will be more successfully
pushed at Cincinnati than Thurmau, Hen
dricks, Field or Payne.
THE CATHOLICITY OF THE AMERI
THE CRV "HOME! ROMISH !" THE l IHT.C'H OF
ENGLAND NOT FOUNDED BY KINO HLNKY
Extract from Bishop Seymour's Contention Ad
There are two difficulties that beset our
mission work especially, and hinder its suc
cess. These are on the surface, they are
phantoms, the creatures of ignorance and
prejudice, sometimes of malice, but they
are none the les3 obstacles because they arc
imaginary; often they are the more invinci
ble for that very reason. Mistakes in logic
may be corrected, but mere prejudice can
rarely be rooted out entirely. The Crst of
these surface difficulties to which we refer
is the careless cry against us on every side,
"Rome! Rome!'' if is not new, it is as old
as the sixteenth century. Whenever lgnor
auce aud prejudice and malice
have nothing else to say
against what they do cot under
stand, or miscom true, or hate, they shout
"Romish! Romish!" This objection has
been leveled against the priesthood, the
sacrements, the creeds, the liturgy the
Lord's Prayer, the cross, the bowing of the
head and the bending of the knee in wor
ship; indeed, almost everything which is
commended of God in Holy Scripture.
This cry has united all the enemies of the
church against her, and men who hated
each other right sore have joined forces in
hearty sympathy, while they pointed at the
surplice or the bishop's robes, and shouted
"Romish?" And, indeed, Rome has on
more than one occasion sent her own sons
to help on the up.oar, prejudice the success
of the foe whom she dreads most of all.
Indeed, this senseless cry makes cowards of
thousands. The one thing it would seem,
which they think of, the one thirlg which
they would avoid, is the being charged
with the crime of Romanism ; and to se
cure this immunity they would sell their
birthright, they would leave their father's
house, they would forbid their heads aud
knees and'hands the decent reverence which
they know is due to the Mot High God,
aud their crucified Re'dcemcr; for this, they
would denude their churches of all that is
beautiful in nature and in art; for this, they
would apologise for their own polity, and
excuse their prayer book, aud compromise
their principles, and then, when all is done,
the heterogeneous multitude, which they
seek to conciliate, cries over them in their
nakedness and shame, "You are crypto
Romanists still." Let us well understand
that Romanism is a system of error in doc
trine and practice, which has grown up by
degrees in these later oges in the western
church. It can bo traced back from its pre
sent gigantic proportions stage by stage as
its additions have come, until it disappears,
nnd leaves the church' of Rome pure,
uncorrupt, Catholic, such as she
was when St. Paul wrote to her his palmary
epistle, such as she was when seven ot her
bishops in succession offered up themselves
in martyrdom tor Christ. Let us well un
derstands that this system of error is
largely a perversion of the truth, and hence
in certain respects is often like it, just as a
counterfeit resembles the genuine coin, and
is dangerous just in proportion as its re
semblance is close and renders the distinc
tion ditlicult. One does not throw owHy
the true current money because thcro w
false in circulation ; neither are we to reject
Catholic truth in doctrine and practice, be
cause there are perversions and exaggera
tions of them to bo found, Let us well un
derstand that it is very easy to call what
we don't like "Rouinnism" aud that such a
cry, if nothing more can be urged in
opposition, by no means settles the question,
Tho thing objected to, although called
Romish may nevertheless bo right and
tfue, Romanism is for tho most part a
system of positive error, of additions to the
truth; the body of truth is beneath it, and
hence by the Ignorant and unskillful is of
ten confounded with it. The cry "Romish,
Romanism," is to the ordinary assailant of
the church what the stones were to the ig
norant, prejudiced Jews who attacked and
abused our Lord. When she announces
her divine claims, her holy mission, her
identification with her exalted head, as the
continuation of his incarnation through the
ages, and tho bringing His offices of
prophet, priest, ami king practically within
the reach ot all generations, then they give
over arguing, and nave recourse to pei'scctr
tion; they raise a mad cry, which will ex
cite prejudice aud hate, just as the
Jews, when Jesus proclaimed His
absolute eternity and God-head 'in the
words, "Before Abraham was I AM," took
up stones to cast at Him. Romanism, as
an usurpation and a system ot error, has
only u siut;!e invincible loe in the world,
and that is no one of the religious bodies
around us, who identify us with it, and
abuse us accordingly ; but it is the one,
Holy, Catholic and Apostolic church on
earth, ot which we are the true representa
tive, and branch in this land.
II. The second difficulty with which
we have to contend is the ignorant state
ment the Anglican church, trom which we
are sprung, originated with H.mry MIL
The charge is made alike by tho Roman
Catholic and the rabid Protestant. It fur
nishes a curious and familiar illustration of
the readiness with which bitter, foes will
drop their hostility when they wish to as
sail a victim which thev mutually hate.
This is our position : the Romanist and
tho ultra Prostestant alike bear us no good
will, and they both approach from
their opposite camps, and with a sneer af
firm, "Your church was founded by King
Henry III," The answer is immediate aud
complete. The church of England can
trace her continuity back by undoubted
historic evidence to apostolic times. What
was done in Henry the Eighth s reign was
simply to reform her, and this reformation
was effected by the church's own lawful as
semblies, and the convocations ot Canter
bury and York, of which the king was not
a member, and with whose proceedings he
had nothing to do. The one question on
which the whole issue turned was this:
"Hath the bishop of Rome by divine right
any more jurisdiction within this realm of
England than any other foreign bishop?"
To which the response triven by both the
provincial synods was "No." And then the
church and state alike
by lawful legislation to repeal
the canons and statutes which had
allowed that unsurped jurisdiction and
bound England to Rome. The Church if
England, the same chnrch which wu plant
ed in Apostolic times and by Apostolic
men, was thus set free from foreign domi
nation and control. She continued en the
same church in ministry, sacraments, creed,
rites and usages. There was no break : she
held on to her cathedrals, parish churches.
universities, colleces, schools, endowments,
everything, indeed, except the errors of the
past; these she cast aside end rejected.
This movement bet'an in the reign of Henry
VIII, and he was in consequence accident
ally connected with it, as anv other sover
eign must needs have been, had it occurred
in the time of any other monarch. But for
any one to seriously affirm that the Church
of England originated in the reign of Henry
VIII, or was founded by him, is to betray
an ignorance so profound that it must ex
cite astonishment, or else to disclose an
unscrupulousness and wickedness which
are truly distressing.
Brethren ot the clergy anil laitv, let us
rise to the full measure of c ur responsibility
in gifts, and labor, and patient endurance.
Let us work, while we may, with all our
might, and seek to overcome our difficulties
in the spirit of love. Let us cas. ourselves
in taith on Ihm, who opens His har.il, and
fills all things living with plenteousness,
and He will give us our reward in due

The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance .Society,
