Address of the Professors of Munich Uni versity to the JSxcommuulcated Theolo gian Papal Infallibility Strongly De nounced. The case of Dr. Dol 11 tiger continues to attract great interest. Dr. Dollingcr receives the sup port of the Bavarian Minister of Worship, and the greater number of the Catholic professors of the Munich Unlver6lty forty-four oat of sixty two have presented the following address to him: In accordance with the other high schools of Germany we protested, eight months ago, against the resolutions which the Pope and the majority of the so-called (Ecumenical Council attempted to force upon Catholic Christianity on July 18, last year. tiiuea then the work of force Inaugurated iu Rome has been continued, and at a time when tho German nation con quered on the battle-fields the first place among the nations of the globe, the bishops of the Ger man nation assumed the task of oppressing the consciences. In the service of uuchristian ty ranny they have brought con fusion and distress into many honest heart. Their object is to per secute the firm believers of their faith and to en chain ns all as much as it Is In their power in tho Irons of absolutism, which is meant to replace the functions of reason and right, the traditions and Holy Scriptures. Whither will this begin ning lead ? What will become of the Catholic world and the Fatherland when it is no longer permitted within the pale of the Church to unite scientific culture UeUung sincerity of heart, and liberty of conscience with religious ness ? In these times of danger, when all exte rior pillars of support are breaking, it behooves the high schools to cling to the last and, with God's help, unbreakable plank of outraged truth. Upon you, above all, reverend sir, have the eyes of the nation been directed. You have fulfilled the general expectation; by your declara tion of March 23 you have given a pledgo of the salutary development; you have upheld the right of free scientific examination and inserted a page of the highest historical importance in the annals of the Munich University. Yon had to decide between a humiliating submission, with out retrard to right and truth, as demanded of you, and a diflicult but indispensable duty, aud you have chosen the right paih. Persevere in the struggle, reverend sir. Defend yourself with the shining shield of science, and may it be a shield of destruction to all those who corrupt Christianity. At this crisis of our Christian des tinies we remember the question of the coura geous Gratrv. "Is God in need of your lie?" bedarf Gott eurer Luge?), and we and thousands of true hearts with us answer line you, reve rend sir, with a clear and decided "No!" LEAP FOR LIBERTY. Darin tr Attempted Escape of a Thief He la Shot Twice Before He Surrender. The Albany Evening Jonrnal of Saturday says: About 11 o'clock this morning an affair took place in the vicinity of the corner of Jefferson street and Delaware turnpike, which caused a tremendous excitement for a time. The facts are substantially as follows: Officer Frank Wels, of the Police Court squad, armed with a bench warrant, went to arrest Uharlee Keefe, a well-known and desperate character, and an ex convict, on a charge of grand larceny. The officer proceeded to the residence of Keefe, No, 2 Delaware turnpike, but the latter seeing him come, sprang out of a second-story in the rear on a shed, and springing from thence to the rround. made his way out in Jefferson street. Yeis dropped on his little game, however, aud started for the corner of Jefferson, reaching it just as the fellow emerged from a yard and ran rapidly down the street. - The officer called to him to bait, threatening to shoot him it be did not. ihis baa no etieet in decreasing the fugitive's speed, however, and Wels. pulllne ont his revolver, snapped it, but from some cause it would not go off. The chase was continued down Jefferson street to Dove, through Dove, up Elm, round and down Jefferson again in the same track, until at last the fugitive ran into a house on the Delaware turnpike, a short distance from Jefferson street Officer Van Bur en was attracted to the scene by this time, and took np a position in front of the bouse, while Wels paessd round to the yard in the rear, intending to close in on and capture him it possible without bloodshed. Weis no sooner reached the yard than he beheld his man coming out of the back door, and called to him to halt. Keefe ran into the bouse again, and Weis after him. Before the officer could seize him. however, he made a desperate rush, sprang out of the frontdoor past Van Buren, and started over towards Madison avenue, at a high rate of speed. Van Buren called to him to halt several times, but be still kept on, when the officer, fearing he would escape, fired two shots after him, both taking effect In the fleshy part of the right leg. He continued to run for a distance of thirty or forty feet after receiving the wounds before he fell. He lay so still and motionless after falling that it was at first believed he was killed, but be Eoon came to, and was taken in charge by the officers, who conveyed kirn to the Police Court, when be was committed to jail. E0UMAN1A. Persecution of Israelite In that Country. Mr. B. F. Pelxotto, of California, the recently appointed unite a states consul at Bucharest, Bends to the Jewith Mestenger the conclusions reached after two mouth' stay in Koumanla, with regard to the persecution of hit brother Israelites in that country. He states that the persecution, of whose details somewhat exagger ated accounts were transmitted several months aero, still continues; that it it systematic, and is fostered by trade jealousies and the political chicanery of demagogues, who take this cheap method of obtaining; popularity. The new Constitution declares that no Israelite can "become a citizen; and a still later project introduced Into the popular Assembly aim at excluding all Jews front obtaining contracts for public works, from residing anywhere but in the towns, and from enjoying the benefits of education in their own faith. Mr. Pelxotto has learned enough since bis arrival to make him "dread to know more." CHLOROFORM AND THE ROPE. Suicide of a Cousin of General Joe Hooker. The St. Lonis Times of April 19 says: About 10 o'clock yesterday morning one of the waiters at the Planters' House observed a man apparently occupying a cramped and distorted rwsition in one of the third story windows of the building on the northwest corner of Pine and Fourth streets. THie man's peculiar posture aroused the cariosity of the waiter, who called to the porter of the building opposite to go and see what was the matter. Upon opening the door of room No. 8 it was found that the occu- Eant bad committed suicide, having deliberately ung himself. A PREMEDITATED ACT. The police were at once notified, and the door barred to Intruders, so that when oar reporter arrived all was just at when first discovered. The dead man and his surroundings formed a scene not soon to be forgotten. The bed was undisturbed, and the appointments of the room just as the chambermaid had left them. In the window casing, about seven feet from the floor, was a stout iron staple. To this had been at tached an inch trunk strap, the loose end of which had been made into a noose and placed about his neck. BIS APPEARANCE. The man was leaning forward, one hand rest ing on the window sill, and his feet, with the knee bent, resting easily upon the floor. There was a quiet look of repose upon his features, and the whole position of the body showed that there was no tension of tho muscles. He had dressed himself with care, having put en a clean shirt and stockings, a pair of pants and a vest. Ills hair was also neatly combed. A handker chief was placed about his neck, so that the strain upon the strap might not cause it to cut into the flesh. WHO HE WAS. The official investigation made by the coroner brought to light the principal facts of the man's history. His name is J. Walcott Hooker. Upon his person were found Masonic badges and papers, Indicating he had taken the thirty-third degree in Masonry. He had also three insur ance policies upon Lis life, the first payments of which were made in 1866. One was for $ 1000, in the Connecticut Mutual, and was taken out May 14, 1806. in favor of his wife. The second was for $2000, In the New York Mutual, aud the third for $3000, in the same company, both in favor of Belle Hooker, his daughter, aud showed that he was forty-three years of age. Numerous conjectures were Indulged In by the few admitted to the room as to how the deed was committed. The composure of the features and the absence of all signs of a struggle lead many to suppose that the death was not simply the result of strangulation. It was thought that he had first saturated his handkerchief with chloroform and had died while insensible. The porter states that he had told him he was a cousin of General Joe Hooker. SINGULAR TRAGEDY. A Man Murdered at Ills own Request- Confession of the Murderess. Some days since we gave an account of the suicide, in a house of bad character, of one Daniel E. Redden, a clerk in the paymaster s department at Omaha. It now turns out that, at his own request, a girl Cora Clinton fired the fatal shot. The following particulars are from the Omaha Uerald of April 18: Last night, about 9 o clock, the woman who calls herself Cora Clinton, whose name Is fresh in the public mind from her connection with the late awful tragedy in this city, sent for Captain Dutcuer, oi tne ponce lorce. lie went immedi ately in answer to tne summons, accompanied by Lieutenant FranK scnuiter, also ot tne ponce. Cora at once entered into conversation with the two officers. She told them that she bad shot liedden with her own hand; that she wanted to be taken away from "this place." Captain Dutcher gave her in charge of Lieutenant Shulter, who conducted her to iail. The city editor of this paper then visited tne jail. Jora men came out irom ner cell, and was told that the reporters were pre sent, and that it sne naa notning 10 conceal sne bad better relate the circumstances. She was dressed in plain black, was pale, but did not appear much aerttated. Turning to us she said: "l coulees tnat l Kiuea mm. vveasKeaii she meant Daniel Hedden. and she said. "Yes. She continued: "He said be had taken lauda num nnd asked me to shoot him. lie wanted that I should save bis soul from the sin. I thought that the pistol he bad was the one he usually carried, and that is a seven-barrelled re volver. I intended to kill myself with the next load. After I saw that there was no other load, then I threw down the pistol and ran out. Cora is. when properly dressed, as sne was last night, a fine-looking woman, ner face Is broad and full, and bos an intelligent expres sion. She is capable of heroism. We asked her why she sought to take her own life. She re plied, "Because I bad killed him." :1YAR AMONG TIIE WOMEN. "If Women Fight They Ought to Have the Right to Vote' How the Illinois Woman Suffrage Association Divided. J-Ycmi the Chicago Pout. Horace Greeley bas been contending for some years that women ought not to be permitted to lav their hands upon tnat consecrated impie ment of civilization, the ballot, until they have borne arms. If H. G. had on Tuesday evening happened Into a room 30 by 20 in the Reynolds block, where was assembled the executive com mittee of the Illinois Woman Suffrage Assocla tion. bis skepticism on the subject of woman's capacity for fighting would have been most effectually extinguished. In that room, on that occasion, it was demon strated to the blindest observer that woman can fight that she can fight like a Bengal tigress and that the scene of ner contentious exploits, when the occasion is woman suffrage, falls little short of Dore's Bedlam. If ber right to vote is to be measured by her fighting calibre, most of the women present at No. 84 ought to be per mitted to cast at least a thousand votes next November. Nearly all of the committee some twenty-five strong were present. They apparently came well drilled and prepared for the contest five men and twenty women; or, to speak more cor rectly, twenty women and five men. The cam paign began over the reading of the minutes, and continued, without cessation, a scene of tumult and angry recrimination till after mid night, ending in a violent rupture, aad a seces sion f an obvioms majority for the formation of 4 rivfil society And such fun at It was! : Cushlng't Manual was laughed to tcorn. Epithets were freely Indulged in. Men and women stood on the floor and contradicted each other In the most ap proved fashion. An officer waa charged with peculation. From eight to twelve o'clock from five to ten combatautt were frequently on the floor at a time, Interrupting each other and clamoring to be Heard. It was trying to the chairman, and, in truth, trying to everybody; but a few seemed to enjoy the trial, as frogs are sometimes said to laugh during the skinning process. For hours the uproar continued. A policeman in froat of the post office beard an unusual noise, sprung hit rattle, and called a squad of neighboring police around him. They consulted. Some thought it wat a murder. Another wanted to tarn the firemen's hose on it. Bat at lost they ventured up the stairs and peeped timidly in. It was half past 11, and no heads broken yet. Finally mid night struck. Thirteen persona were standing en the new carpet in a paroxysm ot unquencha ble rage, twigging their wearied arms and screaming at each other with boaree voices. The chairman de clared the committee adjourned, when the leader of the opposition instantly called upon the frantic crowd to meet in the afternoon at ner residence and organize a rival cute society. And it was to. The gat was turned out; the voices gradually ceased; the pollcimen up-toed away, coniounnea at tne rare perioral- ance. To sum up, Insults bad been freely ex changed, old hostilities had been strengthened, and new animosities bad been engendered; a disgraceful scandal bad been heaped upon the cause which the combatants bad promised to promote, and all to decide whether the desk should go into that corner. If we had time and room to-day we should write upon this text a satire npon human life. PITTSBURG'S SMOKE NUISANCE. Prevention of Smoke by Perfect Combus tionHow Pittsburg Can be Made a Clean City. The Pittsburg Commercial of Saturday says: a practical test is to do made mis afternoon at 3 o'clock, at the coke works of Mr. C. H. Armstrong, in the Twelfth ward, for the pur pose oi demonstrating to those who are skepti cal on the subject that the smoke nuisance can be enectualiy abated in tins great and busy and smoking city of ours. Very important results have been achieved, aad it is now claimed by Mr. McKenzle, a well-known mechanic, that he bas discovered a method of perfect combustion, whereby no smoke is generated. His appliance, therefore, is not strictly a smoke consumer, but a smoke preventer. ills principle of combustion works perfectly with our soft coal, and he is prepared to show to those who will take the trouble to witness his tests, that every particle of smoke issuing from our mills and foundries, our shops and steam boats, can be cheaply and economically pre vented. Without entering into details, we may state that the result is attained by means of a furnace placed in front of the boilers, from which the heat or flame is conveyed directly under them. The combustion in this furnace is thorough, and the heat so intense that it could not be applied directly to the boilers. A bar of Iron placed in tne furnace while in operation will melt away almost like wax, so that it be come necessary to lessen the temperature with cold air before the flame passes under the boilers for the generation of steam. This flame is entirely devoid of smoke. and our) smokestacks, when this appliance comes into general ue, will cease to vomit forth their blackness. The furnace la comparatively inexpensive, can be managed by any one, and the economy in fuel would render it desirable, even if there were nothing to gain by getting rid of our greatest nuisance that nuisance which blackens our houses, blackens our cloth ing, blackens our persons, and blackens our civic reputation smoke. But there are otber advantages to be gained, not the least of which will be the opportunity to utilize all our slack, the furnace consuming the finest coal-dust as readily as lump or nut coal. The Bunn Case. Court of Quarter Session Judge Pareon. This morning counsel representing the prosecu tion In the case of William M. Bunn, charged with conspiracy to obtain from the city of Philadelphia money by Illegal means, presented to the court the affidavit of Charles F. iiartnack, sotting forth that the Grand Jury bad examined four of the five wit nesses endorsed upon tne bill, and bad treated them In such a manner, as to convince them that It was the Intention of the Grand Jury to Ignore the bill; that they had sent for the remaining witness, Mr. Strang, and after exam ining him it was believed they would Ignore the bill ; ana tnereiore me uourt was asuea to anew an omer withdrawing the bill from the further consideration of the present Grand Jury. Counsel said the Curt had slreany heard the merits of this prosecution npon a writ of habeae eorpue, and the President Judge had refused to discharge Mr. Bunn, saying It was a matter which should be inquired, Into by the petit juiy, and now the Grand Jury were about to arrogate 10 tnemseives tne power oi saying mat there, was not sufficient la the case to warrant Its kclng sent into Court. In the o'.den time, when Grand Juries were composed of knights, gentlemen above suspicion, a nnding or theirs against the pre viously expressed decision of the Court rendered them liable to fine and imprisonment. judge raxson said tne woria naa progressed since that time. Counsel replied that no knew tne world had pro gressed, but lie hoped not In such a manner as to shield criminals. In that day, as he had remarked, the Grand Juries were made up of gentlemen who were above suspicion, but now the world had so im proved that, upon a few turns of the wheel, a Grand Jury would be drawn having eighteen politicians, who would quietly enough present a pauper for stealing an egg, and would quickly enough protect the political functionary who plundered the publlo coffers. Be really did think that, after the Court had npon habeas corpus remanded Mr. Bunn, the action of the Grand Jury in Ignoring the bill upon the same facts would be grossly against law. Judge Faxson said this was a novel application, and, so far as the court waa aware, without preca cent. The official proceedings of the Grand J dry were not known to the court, and should not be kcown.:in their offlclal capacity they were respon sible neither criminally nor civilly, and while they were in some respect under the control of the court, they were also under Its protection, and the court would not Infer rr anticipate that they Intended to violate their oaths and consciences. The affidavit was not permitted to be tiled, and the application was dismissed. The MeCloskey Homicide. Court qf Grand Terminer Judaea Poxaon and Fin letter. A session of Grand Terminer, to continue daring the week, was begun this morning. The case put on trial was that of Samuel Snod grass, charged with causing the dea'.hof the boy Michael McCloskey. - The defendant la a respect able man, some tiny years of age, aud a drayman by occupation. The deceased was a small boy, who had Buttered from a curvature of the spine prior to this occurrence. It appears that about 8 o'clock in the afternoon the child was lying on his face looking down a cellar In Front street, near Balnbrldge, and his legs were across the gutter, fcnodgrats bad a new horse In his dray, and was trying his quality ; he and three others driving down the street at pretty good speed, appearing to be racing; Snodgrass was on the side of the street where the little boy was lying, and the wheel of the dray drove over his ankles, fracturing both. The drays stopped npon hearing the child scream; alarge crowd collected and Suodgrass asked If the boy was much hurt; the child said, "You are a bad man to drive overmy legs," aud he said, "No, I am not a bad man; It was all accident." Home one In the crowd asked Snodgrass his name, but, with out replying, he jumped on his dray and drove rapidly oir. The toy was removed to the Pennsyl vania Hospital, where be was treated with some success, so that he Improved fast, and at his own re quest waa taken home; the removal Injured him, and on the 16th of November he died. At the time of our going tc press a jury wat being seleeted. Henry llazlehurst and Moses A. Dropsle, Esq., ap pear for the defendant A Syracuse gentleman tells a bit of a story about a friend which amuses members of the Grand Army of the Republic.

Mont Valerlcn Continues to Cannonade Neuilly, Cllchy, and Porte Maillot, firing slowly and deliberately, and some shells still fall within the ramparts of Paris. The Army of 'the Assembly is being continually reinforced. Many new troops arrived yesterday and to-day, and were at once forwarded to the front. It Is rumored that the Prussians Evacuated Fort Charenton, and it has been occupied by Government troops. This is officially contradicted. It is reported that, in consequence of the difficulties between The Prussians and the Communists, the former, who still hold St. Denis, yesterday stopped at that point all supplies for Paris from the North. The Insurgents' Batteries continue to reply to the fire of Fort Valerlen, but the fire is feeble and ineffective. Heath of Schamyl. New York, April 24.

The torrent bas cut its channel through the front Battue and far out into the fields to the depth of probably forty feet, while steadily foot by foot the great levee crumbles into iu boiling waters.
