It canuot be said tli:it Colli ctor Siminons, in
liis pn- cliargo on Wa-a-Bgt-Baj has violated
the letter of the PiaaJdeat. order to olli.-e
lioldeis, uulepB the Adininistration ia a " BB
" lifical orgauization,'' or Congress a " caticus,w
both of which oflice-holdi is were iorbidden to
" inauage." But iD that forgotten docuuient,
the ofllce-holdera' right to expreaa themselvcB
on public qnestioua was not to bo allowed to
* iuterfero wiih the dischargo of their official
" dutics." Mr. Siiiimons, no donbt, looks upon
his reappointiucnt aa a public question, but
his zeal in discussing it bas earried him u lOBg
way from his Custoni Houso.
Captain Howgate's plan mrets with favor in
alniost all quaiters, and there appears every
reason to hope tliat it will take shape iu a
Polar expedition from this country. As the
Senate (Jominittee on Naval Alfairs bfld al
icady n-ported favornbly upon the UU for this
project, nnd the Hoaaa CaaBalltteB has ngrocd
to a Iike report, the measure will come before
Congress with strong support and probability
The restoration of the franking privilese
with respect to corrc apondence, which Mr.
Jlanilin urged nnd the Senate voted for yes
t.nli.y, will not be so serious a mattcr M it
may hceni. The real restoration took plaee
when the last CongrcKS voted to nllow public
(iocutnonts to go Ihrough the mai'.s free. The
letters of Coiigiessmen and of tho President
aad Yiee-President will hardly load down the
mails, but the renewal of this priviloge, sbould
the Hoaaa concur, will l?ut the whole busim ss
just where it wns when the Pldladelphia
Couvention of 1S72 demanded its abolition
as a preparation for a speedy reduttion in the
rates of poatage._
POPE LEO XIII.
The Italians bave a snying to illustrnte tbe
fallaciouMicss of all predictions as to the ac
tions of the couclavc: OM entra papa, e*ce
carilinale?"lle who is pope when he goes '?.
''will be only a cardinal when he comes out."
But in this instance the Sucied Colleo-o has dc
ceived popular a-gaertj by dolng just what
was foretold of it. Cardinal l'ecci, long bc
fire the death of l'ius IX., was fie
quently BSBBBJ in Kome ns tho probablc
succcssor to tho Papal throue?more
fieqiiently peihfips than any other Cardinal
now livintr; anil the piomptness with which
the election was effectod shows that tln re can
have been little or no donbt from the lirst as
to his prceinineiit fitness nnd availability.
Pius IX. was Bb-BBB alniost as quickly, but in
1846 there were political rcasoiis for Baaa*
vv'nicli do not exist now. The sjieedy result
of this election can only be regardol ns a
stnking tc-stiiiionin! of tln- high opinion entcr
tiiined oi tln- new Pope by his BBBOflfataa in
tlie colleie. All nccounts of him, indc-cd, aie
flattrring. Hy eonuaoo agreemevt, he ls a bbui
of blumeless life, atrong inind, gcntle disposi
tion, culture, scliolar.-diip, reiined inanncrs, and
sincere picty. We pflbti-b in other culunins
the piutiiulai's of ins paat career, and such
illustrations of liis eharaeter as can be gath
ered froin those who know the RoflMfl court,
and toircthor with these details we itive
some lively extraets from recent coik
ppondenee of The Lomhn Timrs, which we
advise our readers to ncc( pt with BBIBB-BtaWa
reserve. Among the vnrious itenis of inisin
ioimation disseminated from this activo soiircc
is tlu- rtory that Cardiaal Peeei was nnt Hkad
BJ pii-.s IX.. wln. wlthln ld for seven years
the hat tlmt had been givon him by (.rciroty
XVI., and that hc- was practically banishoil to
his diocese of fVruKi,t, instead nf being in
vited to graoa the Boaaao court. The trutli is,
as to t-B lirst tale. th.-'t he was not crcat'-il
fa pctio by Grcgory, but his elevation t.. tlu
jniijile aaaaa origioal act of Piaa himtw-lf; an.l
iis to tlio S(C(,nd, Ihat ull cardinals who have
sees are expeeted, exeept uuder special cii
eumstanccs, to icside at them. Cardinal Pecci
was a good bishop, and hc lived with liis
lloc-k. Pius JX., when bishop of Imolii, did
the Bame. Indeed, the late Pope gavo the
strongest proof of bis QOB-dOBCa in tho 111:111
who has now succeeded bim, when he ap
pc.intecl him, lust Scpteinbi-r, Chainbc rlain of
the Holy lioniau Church, to govern dariag tbe
iiitern'gnuiii?Bfl BB-09 so important in its in
lluence upon the eharaeter of tliu BBZl nigll
that the iiicuinbent of lt is populaily e.ill. .1
If any augury could be drawn from tho re
lations between the late pontitT and tlie pres
ent one, it would be that the policy of the
Holy Bea is DOt to ba matciially cliangid.
Th.-re seeius to be an cxpi .tation that tiie ik vv
Pope will provo " moihiatc" in his dealiogfl
with the Eurnpeun Povvcis, and that he will
prcparc the way especially for a recr.iiciliiitinii
with the kingdom ol Italy. That a ebaaga
must come soouer or later in the rospective
attitudes of Church and State in Italy
and Germany iidinits of little donbt, but that
tbe new Pope will make any itnportant con
cesHion? or MiiTciidcr any of the claiiiis of tlie
papaej bbbbm to us bigfalj ImprobaWe. Tbe
poartaoa of the ebareb was too lirmlv aettled
by Pius IX. lo be easily ebaaged, and the policy
of Italy is at tho prescnt time more nggn-s
sively aiiti-Catliolic than it has ever beofl be?
fore. It appaan to bj that the reiga of
I.eo XIII. is to be one of tninsilioii, which
will peiliaps witiicss a giiidiiiil amclioration oi
the distresi?cs of the Church, but is alniost as
likely to BBB them aggravated. He comes to
the throno at all evenis untramiiiellcl. He
has had 110 part iu the poliiieal afl'airs of the
iloly See. He has lived for many years in
u pasioral retirciuc nt. He is suppow-d to be
readj to BCeBpt the inevitable, and make the beat
of it. He is cerluinly not ol.jectionable to the
secular powers, althougli lie is bv 110 in.aiis a
Liberal in polilics. All Ihe ministers ol the
late pontiff retire, BBPBf-hag to established cus?
toni, and the new ruler can chuoso new coiin
Hillois wiihout embarrasKinent, ond wilh
out the fear of iiiisconstruction. He is
an old man, but old age beflta a
]Hipe, and many a pontiiT who hai come
to tlio throne at a still more udvaiiced
period of lifo has been sparetl long PJBBIgi in
the ebair to bave a name iu hislory. To
faithful Catholies, whose atlections hnve bc. 11
diavvn to the Konian See in a very special
maiiner during tlio laat painful years of
the good, gcntlo and K''n<,r,?llrt it-Bj t-B
choice of a head ol the Chur.-h will
be an occnsioii oi congiatiilation und
tri'imph, and Iheir satisfaction to-day will hc
all tlK' greater when they leim that tin- new
Leo is likely to emtilate t!ie peisonal viitues
of his pradeeeoaar. Hut to thoaa oataida tbe
p.ile of tho faith, who cc.nsicl.-r the tiibula
tioiis and n-siiousibiliiies which are impost d
with the taa-fl in these times, (lioacchino
Pc-cci will not BM 111 a BBUI to be envied.

malter of dollars aud cenls to the projectors.
Since then there havo been numerous
c hiiiige? of programme. Stationery bas issued
fi-oni the inanagers of the expedition in tbe
utinost profusion. Pamphleta in clean typo
and neat gray covcrs were scatterrd all over
the laad, and to anybody who might lie sup
posod to take nn interest in such uiatters, at
leaat fouror five eopies were sent. Newspaper
oflicos wero bcsiegcd, aud there seemed to be
no lack of inforniatiou about the expedition
liefore tho public. A curious feature was the
persistency with whicli it was aunounced that
the expedition would start ut given times, and
the (lilusioii was kcpt up witl.iu a few days of
the appointvd hour ihat tho start would actu
ally ba made.
We present to-day au inside history of tbis
speciilation. Its promoter* appear to have bocu
ni, n of mnall means and no scientilie preten
sions. At no time bave they owned or finnly
engaged a vessel for their expedition. Their
hope socnis to havo been that tho subserip
tions would lie paid fast enough to iloat the
enleiprise. The curious foattue about it is tho
luiinber of promineiit scientilie nien who gave
it partial support by writing lettersof guarded
approbation. The Aeademy of Scieiices of this
ciiy cotiiinitted itself by resolution in a sunilar
manner. It seeuis a pity to expose the empti
iii ss of tlio project while nien of such dignity
have givon it u qiiasl-support. Hut tho latest
niove of the adventurers who have tho
scheme in eharge, is of a more serious
chaiacter. They have actually obtained tho
passage of a bill tluough ono branch
of (Ongrcss by which the Xational bonor
will be in somo nieasure conimitted to
their project. Peiinission will bo given by
the bill to enablo these spcculatora to obtaii

rcpresentutive ship of an American cxploiing

many substractions of this aort from the total stock
of virtue and intclligence poBsesRed by tho Legisla
