Address of the Professor! of Munich Uni versity to the Excommunicated Theolo gianPapal Infallibility Strongly De nounced. The case of Dr. Dollinger continues to attract great interest. Dr. Dollinger receives the sup port of tbe Bavarian Minister of Worship, and the greater number of the Catholic professors of the Munich University forty-four out 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 tbe majority of the so-called Ecumenical Council attempted to force upon Catholic Christianity on July 18, last year. iSiuca then the work of force inaugurated in Rome has been continued, and at a time when tho German nation con quered on the battle-fields the first place atnong the nations of the globe, the bishops of the Ger man nation assumed the task of oppressing tbe consciences. In the service of uuchristian ty ranny they have brought confusion and distress into many honest hearts. Their object is to per secute the firm believers of their faith and to en chain us 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 Ueldung), 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 28 you have given a pledgo of the salutary development; you have upheld the rhrht of free scientific examination and inserted a page of the highest historical importance in the annals of the Munich University. You had to decide between a humiliating submission, with out regard to right and truth, as demanded of yon, and a dlflicult but indispensable duty, aud you have chosen tbe 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 Gratry, "Is God in need of your lie?" (bedarf Gott eurer Luge?), and we and thousands of true hearts with us answer like you, reve rend sir, with a clear and decided "No!" LEAP FOR LIBERTY. Daring Attempted Escape of a Tblef He la Shot Twice Before lie surrenders. The Albany Evening Journal of Saturday eays : 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 Weis, of the Police Court squad, armed with a bench warrant, went to arrest Charles - Keele, 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 tbe rear on a shed, and springing from thence to the ground, made his way out in Jefferson street. Weis dropped on his little game, however, and started for the corner of Jefferson, reaching it just as tho fallow emerged from a yard and ran rapidly down tbe street. The officer called to him to halt, threatening to shoot blm if be did not. This had no effect in decreasing the fugitives speed, however, and Weis. pulling out 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 tho same track, until at last tbe fugitive ran into a house on the Delaware turnpike, a short distance from Jefferson street Officer Van Buren was attracted to the scene by this time, and took up a position in front of the bouse, while Weis passed round to the yard in the rear, intending to close in on and capture him it possible w Knout, Diooasned. Weis no sooner reached tbe yard than he beheld his man coming out of the back door, and called to him to halt. Keefa ran into the house again, and Weis after him. Before the officer couia seize nini, nowover, ne made a desperate rush, sprang out of the front door past Van Buren, and started - over towards Madison avenue, at a high rate of speed. Van Buren called to blm to halt several times, but he etui kept on. when the officer, fearing he would escape, fired two shots after him, both taklDg effect In tbe fleshy part of tbe right leg He continued to run for a distauce of thirty or lorty feet atter receiving tne wounds oeiore ne fell. He lay so still and motionless after falling that it was at first believed he was killed, but be soon came to, and was taken in charge by tne officers, who conveyed kirn to tne Police Court, when he was committed to Jail. EOUMANIA. Persecution of Israelites In that Country, Mr. B. F. Pelxotto, of California, the recently appointed, umtea mates Consul at Bucharest. sends to the Jewish Messenger tho conclusions reached after two mouths' star in Koumanla, with regard to the persecution of his brother Israelites In that country. He states that tha persecution, of whose details somewhat exagger ated accounts were transmitted several months ago, still continues; that it is systematic, and is fostered by trade jealousies and the political chicanery of demagogues, who laite mis cneap uiewoa oi uutaiuing popularity, The new Constitution declares that no Israelite can tecome a citizen; aud a still later project introduced Into the popular Assembly aim nt excluding all Jews from obtaining contracts for public works, from residing anywhere but in the towns, and from enjoying the beuelis of education in their own ialth. Mr. Pelxotto has learned enough since hU arrival to luake him "dread to know more." CHLOROFORM AND THE ROPE. Suicide of Cousin of General Jot Hooker. The St. Lonis Times of April 19 says: About 10 o'clock yesterday morning one of tho waiters at the Planters' House observed a man apparently occupying a cramped and distorted position in one of the third story windows of the bulldlrjg on the northwest corner of Pine and Fourth streets, The man's peculiar posture aroused the curiosity 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 pant had committed suicide, having deliberately hung hlmtelf. A PREMEDITATED ACT. The police were at once notified, and the door barred to intruders, so that when our reporter arrived all was just as 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. DIS 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 tbe body showed that there was no tension of the muscles. He had dressed himself with care, having put en a clean shirt and stockings, a pair of pants and a vest. His 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 his life, the first payments of which were made in 1866. One was for $1000, in tbe Connecticut Mutual, and was taken out May 14, 1806. in favor of his wife. The second was for $2000, in the New York Mutual, and 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 . Heddcn, 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 nigbt, about 9 o clock, tne woman who calls herself Cora Clinton, whose name is fresh in the public mind from her connection with tbe late awful tragedy in this city, sent for Captain Dutcher, ot tne police torce. lie went immedi ately in answer to tne summons, accompanied by Lieutenant r rank Scbulter, also ot tne nonce. Cora at once entered into conversation with the two ofllcers. She told them that she had shot Uedden wltn her own hand; that she wanted to be taken away from "this place." Captain Dutcher gave ner in charge of Lieutenant Shulter, who conducted ner to iau. i ne city editor ot mis paper men visited the jail. Cora then came out from her cell, and was told that tne reporters were pre sent, and that if she had nothing to conceal sue had better relate the circumstances. She was dressed in plain black, was pale, but did not appear much agitated. Turning to ns she said: "I confess that I killed him." We asked if she meant Daniel Hedden, and she said, "Yes. She continued: "He said he had taken lauda num nnd asked me to shoot him. He wanted that I should save his soul from the sin. I thought that the pistol he had was the one he usually carried, and that Is a seven-barrelled re- yolver. I intended to kill myself with the next load. After 1 saw that there was no otner load, then I threw down tbe pistol and ran out." Cora is. when properly dressed, as sne was last night, a fine-looking woman, ner face is broad ana mil. ana nos 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 had killed him." 1VAR AMONG THE WOMEN. "If Women Fight They Ought to Hare the Right to Vote" How the Illinois Woman Suffrage Association Divided. From the Chicago Post, Horace Greeley has been contending for some years that women ought not to be permitted to lay their hands upon that consecrated imple ment of civilization, the ballot, until they have borne arms. It 11. u- naa on l uesaay evening happened into a room 20 by 20 in the Reynolds block, where was assembled the executive com mittee ot tne Illinois woman Bunrage Associa tion, his skepticism on the subject of woman's capacity for fighting would have been most enectuany extinguisnea. In that room, on mat 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 her right to vote is to be measured by her fighting calibre, most of the women present at No. Si ought to be per mitted to cast at least a thousand votes next November. Nearly all of tho 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, and a seces sion of an obvioss majority for tho formation of a rival society. And snch fun as It was! Cusblng's Manual was langhed to scorn. Epithets were freely indulged in. Men and women stood on the floor and contradicted each other la tbe most ap proved fashion. An officer was charged with peculation. From eight to twelve o'clock from five to ten combatants were frequently on the floor at a time, interrupting each other and clamoring to be beard. It was trying to me cnairman, ana, in iruia, trying to everybody; but a few seemed to enjoy tne trial, as frogs are sometimes said to langn during the skinning process. For hours the uproar continued. A policeman in frost ot tho post onice beard an unusual noise, sprung his rattle, and called a squad of neighboring police around him. They consulted. Some thought it was a murder. Another wanted to turn the firemen's hose on it. But at last they ventured up the stairs and peeped timidly in. It was half past 11, aud no heads broken yet. Finally mid night struck. Thirteen persona were standing en the new carpet in a paroxysm of unquencha ble rage, swinging tv-eir wearied arms and screaming at each other with hoarse voices. The chairman de clared the committee adjourned, when the leader of the opposition instantly called upon tbe frantic crowd to meet in tho afternoon at her residence and organise a rival State society. And it was so. The gas was turned out; tbe voices gradually ceased; the pollcimen tip-toed away, confounded at the rare perform ance. To sum up, insults had been freely ex changed, old hostilities had been strengthened, and new animosities had been engendered; a disgraceful scandal had been heaped upon tho cause which tho combatants had 'promised to promote, and all to decide whether the desk Ehould go Into that corner. If we had time and room to-day we should write upon this text a satire upon human life. PITTSBURG'S SMOKE NUISANCE. Prevention of Smoke by Perfect Combus tion How Pittsburg Can be Made a Clean City. The FItt8burg Commercial of Saturday eays: A practical test is to be made mis atternoon at 8 o'clock, at the coke works of Mr. C. U. Armstrong, in the Twelfth ward, for the pur pose ol demonstrating to those who are skepti cal on the subject that the smoke nuisance can be effectually abated in this great and busy and smoking city of ours. Very important results nave been achieved, aid It is now claimed by Mr. McKenzie, a well-known mechanic, that he has 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 ot 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, onr 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 the furnace while in operation will melt away almost like wax, so that it be come necessary to lessen the temperature with cold air before tbe flame passes under tbe 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 is comparatively Inexpensive, can be managed by any one, and the economy in fuel wonld 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 other 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. 2.23 a AX. XHTSLXiXaSNCXI. The Bunn Case. Court of Quarter Session Judge Parson. 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. iiattnack, Betting forth that the Urand Jury bad examined four of the five wit nesses endorsed upon the bill, and had treated them In such a manner as to convince them that it was the intention of the Urand Jury to ignore the bill; that they had sent for the remaining witness, Mr. Strang, and after exam ining mm it was oeuevea tney wonia ignore me bin : and therefore the Ooart was asked to allow an order withdrawing the bill from the further consideration of tbe present Grand Jury. Connsel said the Curt had already heard tne merits or mis prosecution upon a writ of habeas corpus, and the President J udge had refused to discharge Mr. Bunn, saying it was a matter which should bu inquired, into by the petit Juiy, and now the Grand Jury were about to arrogate 10 incmcives mo power oi saying mat there, was not sufficient la the case to warrant its being sent into Court. In the olden time, when Grand Juries were composed of knights, gentlemen above suspicion, a ending of theirs against the pre viously expressed decision of the Court rendered tfcem liable to fine and imprisonment. judge raxson said the world naa progressed since that time. Counsel replied that ne knew the world had pro gressed, but he hoped not in such a manner aa to snieid criminals, in tnat aay, as ne naa remarked, tbe Grand Juries were made up of gentlemen who were above suspicion, but now the world had so lm- S roved that, upon a tew turns of the wheel, a Grand ury would be drawn having eighteen politicians, who would quickly enough present a pauper for stealing an egg, and would quickly enough protect the political functionary who plundered the public coffers. Be really did think that, after the Court bad upon habeas corpus remanded Mr. Bunn, the action of the Grand Jarj in ignoring the bill upon the same facts would be grossly against law. Judge rax son said this was a novel application, and, so far as the court was aware, without preca cent. Tbe official proceedings of the Grand Jary were not known to the court, and should not be known.! In their official capacity they were respon sible neither criminally nor civilly, and while they were In same respeet under the control of tbe court, they were also under its protection, aud the court would not infer rranticlr. ate that they lnteodod to violate tbelr oaths and consciences. The affidavit was not permitted to be tiled, and the application was dismissed. The McCloskey Homicide. Court of Grand Terminer Judges Paxson and Fin letter. A session of Grand Terminer, to continue during the week, was begun this morning. Tbe case pnton trial was that of Samuel Snod grass, charged with causing the death of the boy Michael McCloskey. The defendant is a respect able man, some fifty years of age, aud a drayman by occupation. The deceased was a small boy, who had suffered from a curvature of the spine prior to this occurrence. It appears that about 8 o'clock In the afternoon tho child was lying on his face looking down a cellar in Front street, near Balnbrldge, and bis legs were across the gutter, bnodgrats bad a new horse in his dray, aud was try Id bis quality ; he aud three others driving down the street at pretty good speed, appearing to be racing ; fcnodgrass 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 upon hearing the child scream; alarge crowd collected and tiaodgrass asked If the boy was much hurt: the child said, "You are a bad man to drive overfiny legs," and be said, "No, I am not a bad man; it was all accident." Home one In the crowd asked Snodgrass his name, but, with out replyiDg. he jumped on bis dray and drove rapidly off. The boy was removed to the Pennsyl vania Hospital, where be was treated with some suoceas, so that be Improved fast, and at bis own re quest was taken home; the removal Injured him, and on tbe 18th of November he died. At the time of our going tc press a jury was being seleoted. Henry llaislehurst and Moses A. Dropsle, fisqs., 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. It Involves a letter written by that friend to himself, wherein he says: "I have been for some years engaged in wtltlnerup a history of the iJ wight family, and supposed I had every D wight in the land in it. But the other day I saw that Post D wight, of Syracuse, of the Grand Army of the Repub lic, bad sent out some notices of a military sort to the said army. I write to ask if you know of such a man llvintr there. If so, what is his business? Is Post his whole Christian name? There was curious scene in a Richmond Court on Wednesday.
