-Lawrence, or better known to his early

Nono had been dead a long time, and that the
cardinals had put in his place a priest who,
by his resemblance to the late Pope, could
play the role of the defunct. The Pope was so
delighted that he exclaimed, "Our Catholic
papers are never so witty and amusing !" and
he ordered a subscription for five years to be
taken in his name to the Republique Fran
caise. "We shall see," he added, "who will
last the longer, the Glambetta paper or I."
-Poor Marshal MacMahon is being chas
tised by the Univers with whips of scorpions,
because during his recent visit to Caen his
visit to the church was too brief and his atti

dies had been prepared for him, but he did
not kneel, though Napoleon III never visited
a church without worshiping on both knees,
and the correspondent of Univers had s on
"even M. Thiers kneel on one occasion at Ver
sallies." And, further and worse, though
the Bishop had given the Marshal a broad
hint about the urgent necessity of church re
pairs, the Marshal did not promise him a
centime towards them.

An Alliance Between Servia, Roumanla
and Greece.
IN. Y. Time..]
The results of the interview of Ischl
still continue to be the great question of
interest, and it is semi-officially de
clared that not only will Austria with
draw her objections to the offensive
participation of Roumania in the war,
Sbut that Servia is at liberty to attack
' the Porte whenever she pleases, provi
ded the Bosnian and Herzegovinian in
surgents receive no assistance, and
that the military operations be limited
to the direction of the eastern and
southern frontiers-that is, to the Timok
t and Morava valleys. There is then
very little doubt that hostilities will
shortly commence along those lines
5 and will be contemporaneous
6 with a general government among
the Greek populations in Thrace Mace
donia, Epirus and Thessaly. Indeed,
the most serious symptom of the al
leged Servo-Greeco-Roumanian alliance
is to be found in the organization of
u bands of Helenic volunteers in Rou
a mania, where free passage on the rail
Sways is given to all who desire to re
turn to Greece. Five hundred young
men started last week for Athens, and
new war committees are being organ
ized in the interior and a newspaper,
the SUllagrus, has been started in the
capital, which, in Greek and French,
r openly advocates a union of all the
races of Eastern Christians for the
assertion of their rights. Although the
announcement of this alliance is
probably premature, there is no doubt
that the movement in that direction has
begun, and even should the German
government refuse the request made by
King George for a couple of its gen
erals, to whom the command of his
army shall be confided, there is little
doubt that a Hellenic insurrection will
seriously embarrass the Turkish plans.
The Hellenes know that they have
nothing to hope for from European di
plomacy, and that they will receive
nothing except what they may gain for
themselves, and so they propose to take
up arms. The patriotic commit
tee Rigas, whose headquarters
are at Athens, is manifesting an extra
ordinary activity, and within a short
time everything tends to show that its
- programme will be put into action. It
is almost superfluous to speak of the
agitation in Crete, where the refusal of
the population to send a commission
composed half of Christians, half of
Mussulmans to confer with the Porte
on the question of certain reforms de
manded by the inhabitants, has pro
voked an order for the seizure of some
of the notables of the island. Persons
here, in direct communication with the
province, confidently assert that the ex
ecution of the imperial irade will be
the signal for the outbreak of the in
surrection, in spite of the presence of
the English fleet. In short, the move
ment in the East is fast assuming such
proportions that should diplomacy fail
in finding a perfectly satisfactory solu
tion to the question within the next six
weeks, the conflagration will become
general, and will not be quenched ex
cept by the extermination of the Chris
tian element or the dismemberment of
the Ottoman Empire. Still, before
either of these issues can be realized,
many a scene of horror will be enacted,
and blood will flow like water in the.
valleys of the Maritza and the Morava.

The matter of the South Carolina
plunderers grows more interesting
every day. A paragraph in the Charles
ton News and Courrier seems to indicate
that Y. J. P. Owens, who was reported to
have died in Baltimore last week, is
not dead at all. That paper says: "His
temporal troubles are not yet over. A
requisition will insure his return to
South Carolina, and the proof of
his barzen rascality in stealing
public money and funding stolen cou
pons, are ready for the intelligent jury
who will honor him with their attention.
Owens could not expect to cheat the
jailer by dying so inopportunely." Ac
cording to this, it must be somebody
else's corpse instead of Owens' that has
created so much stir in Baltimore. All
the rogues are not to be punished, how
ever. Jones and Woodruff, the clerks
of the State Senate and House, through
whose connivance the fraudulent
pay certificates were issued and swin
dling contracts for printing made,
have turned State's evidence and saved
themselves and their fine houses in
Charleston. Each of these two "sur
renders twenty-eight thousand dollars
of bonanza warrants and all claims
against the State for printing, etc.
Jones also surrenders his Beaufort
property, valued at twelve thousand
dollars and Woodruff surrenders the
Republican Printing Company's build
ing and fixtures in Columbia, valued at
about seven thousand dollars, and also
claims against the Bank of the State for
one hundred and thirty thousand dol
[New York Times Letter.]
I arrived in Utah about the time the
"Inquisitorial Reform" began. The out
side world knows little about this. The
authorities of the Church caused it to be
proclaimed that the people, by their
dilatoriness in taking plural wives, their
scanty payment of tithes, and other
shortcomings, had displeased the Lord.
The territory was traversed by mission
aries who preached to that effect, and a
confessional was established-or rather
a catechism prepared-with the view of
obtaining information as to the life of
every family and its members. The
country was districted, and "teachers"
were appointed for each district. The
duty of these men-for they were all
men-was to visit every house in their
respective districts, and put the ques
tions laid down by the head of the
church to each individual alone. These
inquiries searched into the most sacred
relations, and had to be answered
on oath. The result of this inquisito
rial reform was that the Mormons were
found to be the most iniquitous of peo
ple. and Brigham Young decreed a gen
eral baptism of every male and female
in the church. My house was visited
by one of these teachers In the
absence of my husband. I re
fused to hear his questions, and
he insisted that I should. I took my
husband's rifle and ordered the teacher
to leave the premises at once, which he
did in great haste. Another branch of
this reform was the instructing of girls
in the importance of plolygamy, and
what their duty was as brides of "God's
chosen people." All girls from the age
of 12 years and upward were compelled
to attend lectures by the Elders on these
subjects. Many of them, acting on the
doctrine that was inculcated, were led
to become plural wives as young
as 13 years of age. I never heard
of any force being used in Salt
Lake City to induce these children
to "seal" themselves to men, but at Co
rinne, or what has become Corinne, a
number of girls were once confined in a
house until they were starved into con
senting to become wives. They were usu
ally promised that they would be sent
to school until they were of age before
being expected to take their positions
as these plural wives, but these promises
were seldomr kept. I knew three girls
who ran away from their "husbands"
and took refuge at Camp Douglas, and
there were a great many who did so,
some of them marrying soldiers. Nota
few became women of the town. Theu
reign of the "Inquisitorial Reform"
lasted several years, and was the era of
licentiousness, murder and destitution.
