Hcliueaa gave his consent. and the Dean of t&e
Apostolical ProtbonoUrles aaid that Una it should
be done.
Meanwhile the cannon of the castle of Saint Ang*
lo announced to the whole city the promulgation of
the d9 ree. and its multiplied salvo* seemed to wish
to make the tiding of thu great event reaon even
the most distant oonntrtes. All the bells or the
towers and steeples of Borne rang a full peal, and
the inhabitants, to manifest tielr joy, ad >rn?d neir
windows and their balconies with tapestry and
hat gings.
After the Pontifical Mass, at whioh her Royal
Highness the Princess of Saxe, the diplomatic body,
ana the offloers of the French army of ooonpation,

Slace which bad been marked out for them, the

The Holy Father, carried upon the ttdia gutato
tia, then proceeded processlon*lly to the Chapel
of Sixtw IV, commonly called the Chapsl of the
Choir of the Moat Reverend Chapter of the Vati
can, and caused to be solemnly crowned there the
msge of the Virgin, representative of th3 Conoep
ion; the crown was of gold enriched with procious
stones. Then his Holiness passed into the ohipel
called Leila Pitta, to nnrobe himself of his Pontifi
cal vestments there, and (he Holy Fa '.her resolve!
theie the thanksgiving of the Very Rev. Father
General of the Order of Friars Minora ot the Ob

Fathers have always taught. His Holineai after*

On the evening of that glo. ions solemnity, Rami
nresented. a maguiQcsnt spsctacle. A I the houses,
from tb'c palace of tho greit nobleman down to the

d.cS. T! e municipality had caused to ba illumi

'Japitol, where two o chestrai performed until a
very advanced hour of the night some choice >ieces
of muni. , which were applauded by ths cro vd. Ths
magistrates took c?r;> to prepa-e in thair hall, in
honor of the Io.macul ite Conception, an a iadenio
reunion, at which his Eminence Cardinal Wiseman
pronounced bn eloqu wit <iis:;ou'se Iq presence of a
numerous ooucourse of c\r unals, bishops, prelates,
and otber personages.
Rome, upon tf is day so solemn, has manifested
m the mos; striking manner what is ner d voti in
for tl e Most Holy Virgin ; and the bishops, on re
turning to their dioc??sen,and in announcing to their
people what the." have neard from the oracle of the
Vatican, can also tell th m what honors people ren
der to the VirgT in the ca ital of the Citaollc
world, and if Rom>; on this occasion was benaath
Ephesus. The tdttovj of the church will mirk
amongst the most ro raorable this day of the 8th
December, 1854, on whlci the august Mother of the
Saviour ot tae woild has received from the chair of
truth a new triumph.
[From tlie Freeman's Journal, Jan 13.]
Among the touching incidents lu connection witll
the anuudt ceremonies in Rome, we Hod the follow
ing, which we translate from the Univers:
" We might tuw have the Basilica of St. Peters,
in which the cert monies have jam been concluded,
and thus, so to speak, handed do?n to posterity in
visible and imperishable characters; bat, flrst, we
must notice two or three incidents wbijh hare sin
gularly stru< k all who witnessed tnem. Da you per
ceive at half-past 8 o'clock, A. M., that sedan boras
towards the Council Ciamber by servants of the
Holy Father, cloth- d in brilliant costuaie ? The*
move with a pre aution and respect. It ii a salut
they are conducting to tne fete ?a learned and
holy bishop, turited bv tue Sovereign Pontiff ; and,
although seized < n his v;jage by a deiperate malady,
he i as braved the perils 'of an agitated ocean, and
despised trie fatigues of a long joarney by land,
nay, even forgets the approach of death iu his
auxiery to rea h Rome, ia order to place, his jewel
in tbe diadem of the Queen of H aven, and hear
the dogma, so long aemnd by his ardent vows and
fervent prajent, by his votes aa doctor and a?
bishop, proclaimed by the successor of St Peter,
the vicegerent of Cariat upon earth. Having heard
it pronounced by the lips oi Plna IX., he retires
content, happy and full of joy. He can now die; he
ha* se-n tne tiinuiph of ula bel <ved Mother on
earth; be also has pained bis battle. His courage
bas Lot been leas heioic than the general w iose
death the world hta recently admired and lamented.
After leaving the cfmrch i e was met by one of tils
parishioners, who expressed his happiness at seeing
him. ' And I also,' responded tha sweet and ploua
E relate, 'lam fappy; I h*ve witaesaed what I so
ing desired, _..d I am ome here to die.' 'No,
Mviaeigneor,' the otntr answered; ' Bweet Mary
will cure you.'
"'If Mary, conceived without slo, wishes to re
stOie me, I shall retnrn to my diocess to pro tlaim
ler power and her benignity; bat I am satisfied to
die here. It shah Lot grieve me in the lea?t to de
pa; t here.'
" This waa a French prelate, the holy aad cou
rageous Bishop of Mans, who, rather thin not com
ply wit i the call ot tbe Holy Father, to offer in
uere ?n nis tribute or devotion to the H ly See, aud
be present at the meeting given by the holy Virgin
hem-lf, cboie to ex ose himself to the d tagers of
dce? i by sea, or on a road of France or My, dartag
bi* journey to Rome. Thus, behold what oar pre
lut? b suffer lor the love of Mary.
"Aid see here also this venerable old man,
clothed in white, supported by two persons, and
taking his p'ace among the Senate ot Cardinals, who
is he f He is tbe princ < of the Church, dear to the
poor; and, though poor himself, be has always beea
their kindest benefactor: he is the friend of Gregory
XVI.; he is the venerable Cardinal Bianohi, coma
to heur proclaimed from fie mouth of the Vioar of
Cbriat the triumphs of the Qaeen of tne Clur n.
"Then, whilst the Bovereign Pontiff is taking off
bis sacred ornaments, see aporoaohing him two Re
ligious, two chteft of the great and holy family of
the eerapMc St. Francis, the Gene-al of the Con
ventuals and the General of the Observants. The
one holds a branch of the golden lily, tne other a
branch of the si.ver lily; they present them to the
Hi ly Father, and beg of him to receive tiiem as a
ieeble homage of the gratitude of tne Franciscan
family for the new glo rj that he has jast given 1 1
tbe Mother of Chris-tans, to the special patroness
of their S"cular institute, for the consecration defi
nitely and infallibly stamped upon the belief tiat
was always the dearest Inheritance of its doctors,
atd its sch .ols, and its numberless saints and
blefsed, which it had given to the Charch Tri
un phant. It ia with tears that this tribute of love
la offered by the piots children of St Francis; it
is with tears that it ia received by the Bovereign
Pouiff."
In conclusion the Unwtrs says: ?
"Sac:i has been the festival ot the 8th December
at Rome, or rather such has been a part, the nmt
feeble, perhaps, of the imperishable feu. For the
rest, that ia only tae first day; it is the omnsnca
meet ot the ftun. On the 10th another solemnity
attracted to St. Paul'a, outside of tbe walls, tbe
whole of the Holy City: tne Pope, assisted by two
hundred bishops and mil the clergy, went there to
oon sec rate the Church of the Apostle of the Gen
tiles, the dedication of which is thus allied to the
triumph of the Queen of Heaven. On toe evening
of the same day the Academy of Arcade* held ia
the capitol, in the great hall of the Senate, a so
lemn sitting, in which Cardinal Wiseman oe ebrated
tbe recently uefioed myatery; and the next day, the
11th, the Academy of the Immaculate Omoeption
b?d announc <i a sitting net lesa brilliant in the
Church of the Holy Apostles, to fitt the glorious
privilege of which it bears the name, and in whim
it has always professed the belief, re deami are
held In the majority of the churcnea. In fine, it is
a festival without end, and indeed the peopl. cannot
weary of singing the glory of re eorating the vic
trry of t' e powerful Queen or Earth and Heaven.
And that festival, c >mm>noed la Rome, will be on
tlnued throughout the entire world. The bell or St.
Fetor's will set In motto a the bells of toe entire
earth, and even in the aolitudee of the New World,
and in the farthermost cjuntries of tne 0 d, the
word of tbe Sovereign Pontiff will be reueetsd, aad
bailed with acclamation. Everywhere tne I<n macu
late Conception shall be celebrated and glorified
At thin thought may we not h ipe, for the wo Id
and for the Church, the great prosperity whl h tbe
saints lave foretold for the period which would see
the Incomparable privilege of Mary urojlalmed?
May we not believe toat our M ither will repay t>
us in bleesings the brmage that wt have off* -ed he< ?
How doubt that the lacreaee of her gl >ry walci she
baa just received, is, for ns, the pledge ot a better
present, and a more prosper ra? future? That haa
oeen the hope of the saints; it ia tbe hope o> Pins
IX., this other hoi. Pontiff, this anitel of the
Cbnrcb, whose pontificate wia bs henceforward glo
rious amor gat all theee which have ad van eel the
reign of Mary, which have exalted her privilege
and her greatness."
In a subsequent number, the Utivtrt says i?
The accounts received of the holy Biahop of Mans
are m<*t couaollng. The Holy Vi gin baa blessed
tbe courage which condu ted the venerable prelate
to the Eternal City. After t ie fatigues or the
voyege, much augmented by hia aeilstlof at the
augu-t/fte on tbe 8th, a visible amelioration took
L.'.ve, and we hope that t ie learned and plooa
Liatop will soon be sufficiently reetored to enable
him to retdn to J>'? dear dloceea, and again over
whelm it With hie biMMagf. It ie the re?mpeaee
with which the Immaculate Virgin will reward the
great love tbat inspired him to eawut* tbe ptrik
of* long and laborious journey to order to be pre
?eat it the triumph of her Conception.

I shall not annoy your renders with a description
of the ocremoty prformed by tue Pope, assisted by
140 bishop* and 60 cardinals, acd who
munc aoAiit <ni HOW
r..ooui ana mars; I s iall limit my
self to wtite you some incidents which may have
escaped the eight of the correspondents of other
papers, they may be of some Interest to the friends
of the Cnttader.
While the cannon of St Angelo was thundering
fotth its destructive elements, announcing to the
world at large the - nation of the Qsddeis of the
Church by the infallible authority of Pins IX., in
Trastevere, where alone is to be found the true
genuine stock of (he ancient Roman character, toe
peopi* were engaged in a ce'emony quite different
front that performed in St. Peter's Cnnroh. Several
boats loaded with wheat and oorn were tied to the
shore, ready to be towed .tj Civita Veoohia, and
thence set sail for France. The price of bread
being high at Rome, the inhabitants of Trasterere
decided to oppose the exportation of oorn fro n the
city, to feed, at a low price, their own oppressors.
The steamboat which was to tow the b jats down
the Tiber was attacked by the popuaoa and pre
vented from approaching; the police were assailed
with stones and missiles, and compelled to with
draw from the conflict; but several companies of
Frencn soldiers finally appeared, who unceremo
niously charged tne rlotere at the point of the bayo
net. TMb happened at the very mom ant tie P <pe
was decreeing a new arti le of faith f?r his Holy
Church. Pius IX. was much affected on beamg
the news of tais outside council, aud felt grieved
tbat the Romans sbould have offered sucha s andal,
and so mnon indifference towards the " Saored
Mystery of the immaculate Conception."
Within St. Peter's, I confess tuat the cerenmy
was, as It would have been called In some New York
daily paper, "imposing," but without, the procession
pieatuted more the appearanoe of a poor masquer
ade tban the assemblage af toe rich prelates of the
church. With the exception of the Italian bishops,
almost all those from foreign countries were com
pelled to hire carriages an i servants; in a few hours
they improvised in Rome new lwaries, joiskies dressed
to tbe most strange and ridiculous costumes; coaches
bearing newly painted coats jf-aimi of some mlcnd
baibarian, and the ghetto ot the Jew* was ransack
ed to dress up and to give some dignified showing
to the suit of his Holiness. Am >n< '.hi dilapidated
bishops who looked more like pilgrim* than prelaw,
I am sorry to say were those from the United States.
They looked very sorrowful, in balng driven In sujh
an i.umble c .ndiiion, aide by side with ca -Wages
worth seven* thousands of dollars, and which must
have remembered to them the style of oriental lux
ury. Your Archbishop John, and toe one of Balti
more, wtie provided with a decent eta h by tneir
fellow friend and companion Gaetano Bedim, but
unfortunately, not one of the Amerioan prelates has
yet been made a cardinal, nor was there assigned to
them any conspicuous place In the processing.
Durir.g the ceremony, boieg wit a in 8.. Peter's, I
witnessed a curious ooourrenca between a papal ma
jor aid a F reach officer. M .j?- Casoiaal (father of
that famons young Casciani, who denounced to the
papal polioe several ot hia political friends) having
ordered his soldiers to kneel d >wn, perceived that a
French officer was itandiog. Casuani commanded
him genou a tore, but thi foreign otfl -er rema ned
immoveable. TbiB irritated ihe papal centurion to
such a pitch that be d ew his a word in the temple of
the Goddess ol Heaven, and was going to assail the
Frenoh officer, wheu Ol. Guglielmi Interfered in
time to preveut a collision. I learned afterwa'd
that this offieer is a Protestant, and when the cere
mony of the Immaculate Conception was over he
atked the MMl major with what right he ordered
him to kreel before the boly wafer. "I am com
manded by my sovereign,'' answered the papal mi
jor. ?' Well," replied the stern Huguenot, " tell
your aovereigo that tbe Frencti have no orders to re
wive from him. we being his orotectors, and that
for myeelf. I knrel only to God."
To < oamem rate the final declson of the Concep
tion of the Blessed Mary, "born wiihaut Origin*!
ato," the P. pe has ordered to be erected on the Pi
azza di Spagna, Just opposite the College of the
Propaganda, a moLunrnt, on which Bhail be placed
a statue of Mary. This will be nothing ne * to tne
Romans, there being in Rome slrealy a like monu
ment consecrated to t-ie Blessed Mary, on tbe aq lare
of Santa Maria Maggtore. It was relied by Paul
V., the great lover and protector of the Ioqnlsithn.
Durii'g these taat Cays we nive had a change of
ministry. Gall, Secretary of the Treasury, na/Ing
r bbed tnough, waa adviMU to resign. <Ls suc
cessor is tr.e Right Rev. Mr. Ferrard. My lord
Peutini, a constitute NMH prelate, oas oeen tmdered
with tbe charge of Secretary of War. Before the Pope
could be induced to make a net minUtry, several
deputations from various classes of society we it to
bim and begged bis Ho laeas to relieve people from
the robberv of hiB secretaries. Each, commmton
rvomitcnaed him to namo B s top Ferrari as Min
ister of tne Treasury. " Wnat!'' exclaimsd Plus IX ,
'?is there no other honest prela.e in tne chur h but
Ferrari?" At another luterval tbe Pope Bad:?1 "I
see that we are bet rajed and robbed by aid Well,
let us try Ferrari."

8TBKET8.
There appears to b? no diminution o t Interest on
the part of our citizen* in the complaint book open
ed at tbe Mayor's office. Bat the natter doei not
?top with the entering of the oomplalnt on the
book. Mayor Wood, whenever It Is practicable, *a?s
to It immediately and.haa the matter remedied. Emi
grant runner* and baggage smashers are compelled
to return money they have taken wrongfully from
emigrants. Lionises given to unworthy persona
are being revoked, and heads of departments stirred
up to pertorm their duties. No derileciion of doty
is overlooked, nor is any matter deemed too trivial
to pass unnoticed when it Involve* a wrong done to
an) perton. Cases where poor emigrants have bwn
defrauded out of a few dollars are attended to with
as much ewe as thon^h weret; ?t^e.
The great bulk of the com lainta relate to ob
structions on the sidewalks. It appears that contain
persons in the marble cutting busioes* are iu the
habit of appropriating all the sidewalks to them
selves, and cot oontent with that, also ocmpy a por
tion of the street. This, according to one complaint,
has b?en done by one person for the last ten year*.
Old pumps come in for no little denunciation
These relicts of former days have been allowed to
lemain as ornaments, doubtless, tor they have been
no sort of use to anybody for a number of year*.
The police must look out and pay their tailors' and
shoemakers' bills, or else they will And their name*
recorded on the oomplalnt book. By all means, pay
ycor tailois.
There la a bint contained in one of the complaints
that merits attention. It appears that a number ot
very poor people are In the habit of frequenting
what are termed policy shops, and there spending
the money tl.ey receive as charity.
It is to be hoped that tha Mayor will hurry up
the contra' tors, and compel them to clean the
street*. They are in a shameful condition. It ii
positively disgraceful to all concerned? to the au
thorities who do not do their duty, and to our citi
zens * ho tolerate, for more than one day, the out
rageous cordition of our oity. The strteta are
flooded with mud, and it is a perfect torture to walk
more tban a block. Largo hi lea filled with slush,
deep enough to diown a man, are allowed to remain
day after day without attention, and these, too, oc
curring in the most ciowded thoronghfares of the
city. Hurry up the contractors, Mr. Mayor; hurry
them up.

The follow Ing extract of a communication addressed to
Henry II. Dew ey, Esq., L'nlted Suites Consul at I'ara, Bra
all, has been officially oomnmnioated to this offloo by the De
partment of Stato, and is published for the information of
marirors:?
Extract from a communication addressed to the Unitod
States Consul at I'ara, by the Captain of the Port of the
aanie, dated Nov. IB, I KM.
Km i rk-i.ee baviug proved that it is much m<?re convenient
that the aignals beretufote made in the village of Salinas for
tie vessels which touch at that point to receive pilots should
be made near the light house, on account of bein< more dis
tinctly seen Irom on huard the vessels, the Captain of tbo
port has caused a flagstaff forty (40) fast in height to be
plaoeti at the distance of fifty ei^ht (00) fathoms c*st-north
east of the iaid light bouse, where the signal* will he made
with seven (7) different flags, as follows:?
No. 1. A red flag, with white swallow tail.
2 A nliitu flag, with a blue cross through it,
3. A II#/, upper half red, lower bslf white.
4- A flag, nil blue.
6. A it*., inner half white, outer half red.
6. A flag, bine and wuite chequered.
7. A lla;:, red and white chequered.
No. 1 signifies to vessels arriving at Salinas that a pilot
it t litre, and a boat to take him on I oard.
No. 2. That the pilot goes on board immediately.
No. 3 That the tide will not allow the pilot to embark.
No. 4. That the pilot will go on board before noon.
No. A. That the pilot will go afternoon.
No. 6. That the pilot will go on board before miduight.
No. 7. That the pilot will go on board after midnight.
When from on board the vessel* a bonttro is seen in the
village of Salinas, it is understood that there is a pilot, and
a boat to take him on board as soon as the tide will allow.
When two bonfires a?e seen it is a signal that there ia a pi
lot bnt no boat to take him on board. When no bonfire <a
seen during the night in the village, the vessel having appear
ed duriig the day, it signifies that there is uo pilot at the
?tation.
Vessels whieh arrive off that station wishing a pilot
should hoist a red flag at cither the fore or mainmast head
but never at the peak.
When on board the vessels It is known by the signals made
on shore that the tide wilt not allow the pilot to go off, ves
sels not wishing to anchor In six or seven fathoms, keeping
the lliht-bonse bearing southeast, should lio off and on,
standing out dnring the flood and in shore during the abb
tide.
Vessels being northwest from the light can reoeive pilots
more promptly than in any other position. Tbe pilots em
bark at bighwater. which, at tha full and change of the moon,
is, nn the coast, at thirty minutes past seven, (7h. 30m.,) and
at the place where the vessel should auchor, fifteen minutes
past eight o'clock, (8li. 15m t
For information between the village of Salinas and the
light house, two flags will ba used at the said village; one of
which Is all white, and the other red with a white square in
ths centre.
Tbe white flag hoisted on the staff in tbe village signifies
that thve is both pilot and boat.
Tbe r?d flag with whita square signifies that there la a pilot
bat no beat.
The two flags together are a signal that there is no pilot at
the station.
Masters of vessels need pay no attention to these last
named signals, as tbey are merely mnde fur the information
of the keeper of the light, who also ba* charge of the
signals. HENRY B. DEWKY, U. 8. Consul.
