7L AX ITALIAN DICK TURPIN. m Frm a a, r. sn. ' ; r ' Viotor Emanuel, King of ' Italy, has a' de- J ligbtful sense of humor, t leaving found it to 1 his interest to absorb the entire possessions of Fope Tins IX, be has written a letter to his Holiness to explain to. him that it,.! nil . for the Pope's own, good. "Tbpe are. trou blesome times," says his ilajtbiv; "the pa " fiions of the people are in a state of efferves cence; they might even give your Holiness trouble; permit me, therefore, to relieve yon cf all your burdens." If the true story of the life and adventures cf Kiohard Turpin may be relied upon, it was with like playful humor that he lightened the passengers by the London' coach of their lit tle belongings. "My dear madam," would the gentle liichard say, "those diamonds are care to you, and may one day tempt some evil-minded person to steal: allow me, there fore, to take care of them." Turning to tho mercantile traveller, with a beaming smile Tjpon Lis cheerfulface, and trifling in a sport ive bat careless way with the silver-mounted butt of his pretty pistol, Richard would ob serve, "Your purse, my dear sir, I notice is Tery heavy; gold is the mot of all evil, and your pockets are fairly overflowing with gold. Permit me to unburden them, and to relieve your mind of that distressing weight of care which the possession of so much wealth must bring." One day Dick fell In with the Bishop of London. The feelings of that ecclesiastic at the sight of the outlaw must have been some what Bimilar to these of the Bishop of ' Home on receipt of the letter to which we refer from that royal bandit already under the out lawry of excommunication. - The circum stances of the two cases are so similar that we may be pardoned for recalling to our readers the ballad version of the first one: "Bold Tnrpln once on Hounslow Haath His bold mare Bess bestrode. When there be saw the BUhop's coach A -coming along the road ; So he gallops close to the horses' legs, And he claps bis head within, And the Bishop says : Sure as eggs Is eggs, This here's the bold Turpin 1" The good Pope doubtless made some simi lar exclamation, in choios Latin, when the King clapped his bullet-head and curling moustache into the window of the Pontifical coach. However, the Italian bandit does not, like the English one, put two bullets in the , Bishop's nob. ; On the contrary, he commits his little robbery in a religions spirit. A sweet air of sanctity pervades the entire affair. He approaches the apostolio coach with meekly folded hands and a devout air. We all remember how the Rev. Mr. Stig gins was accustomed to smite himself con tritely upon the stomach with his dilapidated umbrella, and to roll his eyes heavenward before partaJuDg of Mr.Weller's pineapple rum hot with three lumps to the tumbler; but even Stiggins, though clad in a connate suit of brass, never had the impudence to call the indignant weller to bless the bowl. King Victor Emanuel, however, is equal to the oc .,' caslon. "I see the inevitable necessity," . 6ays this Italian Richard Turpin, "for the security -of ' Italy aud the Holy See, . that my troops, already guarding V the frontiers, should advance and occupy I the positions which are indispensable to the security of your Holiness and the mainte f sance of order." Perhaps his Holiness would 1 be even more .secure if the King should lock 1 him up in some quiet cell, quite by him f self, and away - from all the oares and I clamors of this troublesome world, "Your Holiness,", adds the . child-like and bland llicardo, "will not see a hostile' act in this L. ( asure of precaution." Hostile! Oh dear, by no means. Such a good friend to have in time of need; he will see to everything, Zouaves and alL . "I beg your Holiness to bestow upon me your apostolio benedic tion," concludes this son of the Ghnrob, "and I renew to your Holiness the expres , sion of my profound respect." Turpin, the ' original, always allowed his victims - to swear. If the British traveller, handing 1 over his pocketbook, said: "Take it, and be d d to , you," Dick was rather pleased ' than otherwise. ' And undoubtedly it would greatly solace the feelings of the Pope if, in - handing over the keys of the castle of St. Acgelo, he could indulge in some good re sounding anathemas. It would be a moment of true bliss if he oould fling the keys at Tnrpin's bead, follow them up with a brisk , application of the apostolio toe, and finally '.. consign Richard with many , maledictions to those regions where the mercury goes so high . that there is no use in keeping a thermometer. But one of the misfortunes in being the head of the Church is that he can't swear, exaept in Latin, and that doesn't relieve one's mind. And so the unhappy Pope must hand over the keys with his benediction. Oh, too cruel Turpin i Alas ! poor Pontiff ! TBE POPE'S TEMPORAL DEPOSITION. From th N. Y. Time. One of the great events of the past smm- , tner the destruction of the temporal power of the Pope, and the reduction of the Holy 1 '. Father to the simple position of a high priest has fallen flat on this generation. Two years ago it would have been considered - one of the grand apocalyptio revolutions, the accomplishment of prophecy, and the heralding of the speedy coming of the new "kingdom." Preachers would have com mented on it, and prophetio writers would have demonstrated its harmony with myste rious and ancient prodictions. Moralists would have Been in it the final undermining of priestly power in temporal things, and that secularization of tho world's religious institutions which has baen the dream of so many reformers. But the "capital of two civilizations" has been transformed into the ' capital of the kingdom of Italy, and the , great spiritual monarchy, which for bo many centuries baa us toot on tne necK or kings, has been dethroned, while the world of Eu rope and America have hardly noted the oc currence, or if they have, scarcely felt more excitement over it than if the kingdom of Greece were overturned. This great revolu tion, and the triumphant expression of un limited dogmatio knowledge by the (Ecumeni cal Council, have signally failed to arouse "' the anticipated deep interest of mankind. As - dramatic scenes, they may be said to have been failures. v The causes are not obscure. The earnest ympatoy oi modern peoples is not with, re ligious leaders, their doctrines, or their organizations. Modern thought and feeling are far more oauea out toward political re forms and political revolutions. So stu pendoua a political cnange as nas been going ,on this summer, wherein the first military cower of Europe has been humbled, Cieaaristu cr personal government has exploded, and a qeiet and earnest race have taken the first - place In European progress, has quite ab sorbed the thoughts of men, and given them little opportunity of studying the destinies of the priesthood. Events so wonderful as the overthrow and capture oi Napoleon in a six weeks' 'campaign, the siege of Paris, the declaration of a repnblio, and the appa- rently threatened chaos of political partibs in France, have caused the smaller fortunes and revolutions of 1 the Popedom to be compara tively neglected. Moreover, many will recall list it is but sixty years since that the Pops as deposed and deprived of his dominions by a far more powerful potentate than Victor Emmanuel, and yet in six years he was again restored. It is true that now he has hin own people ngainst him, and then his prodeces ftcrs.hnd a foreign conqueror. But in the changes which must ooour daring the next twenty years throughout Europe, it is not at all an improbable event that portions of the Roman or Cellio races may unite to replace the Pope on his throne, and mav burned. . The indifference of Protestant, however, to tbis great event, may arise from a yet deeper cause. IUs becoming more and more doubtful whether the deprivation of the Pope of his temporal power will much diminish his spiiitual influence in distant couutrioH. Un doubtedly in Italy, the humbling of the head, of the Church to the condition of a superior bishop, without an army or a treasury, or any considerable territory, will lower him in the eyes of the ignorant, "and lessen his power over their minds. But, in the opimou of foreigners, and even with the reformers of bis own country, the fact that there is no distinctly Papal territory, with a cut-throat army, and the worst government and most corrupt administration in Europe, will really free the Pope from some of the worst reproaches cast upon him. Hitherto the American or Eng lish heretic and European reformer has siid: "The Papal States are a sample of the legiti mate effect of Roman Catholio principles transferred to politics, nere you have the religious State whiob the Church desires to found in America and England, and every where else." The rapaoity, illegality, cor ruption, and tyranny of the Roman States were a perpetual and unanswerable argument against the Pope's Government. This is henceforth removed. The Pope stands before the world simply as a priest of religion and bishop of bouIs. He can now be the successor of the apostles in his poverty as well as his sanctity. No political stains now rest upon him; nosuspicionjof princely luxury or princely oppression. He has no relation to the powers of this world. His subjects may be under republics or monarchies or empires. He rules over souls. . Such a figure, the centre of the Church's affection, freed from earthly insignia and eartLly complications, supposed to be the humble object of persecution and the saintly mcdel of sanctity, will, in our judgment, pos sess a far deeper infinenoe over the Roman Catholics of all countries than did ever a petty Italian prince, governing badly a wretched and oppressed population.
