The observances were commenced yesterdsy [ with a general illumination of the city of Baiat Peter's shone lihe a great chureb en fire. At seven o'clock this morning there was a grand Itasssrisa ef prelates, priests, monks and soldiers Mm the Yatican to Baiat Peter's.

There were even nans and soldiers from almost sassy country in the wsrld present, and the as HSibled multitude made up a most brilliant con gregation. Pope Pius the Ninth celebrated the Gregorian BBSS ia Latin and Qreek. There were two interruptions to the ceremony. The curtains of one of the windows of tks church caught fire at one moment, but they were speedily torn down by the guard, and no damage assured. After this a man who had become' crazy from excitement produced by the pomp and glitter and Mfhts, eut his throat, and died just under the hraaas statue of St. Peter. There was no confusion in consequence. His hedy waa quickly removed outside. The Pepe at once proceeded to reconsecrate the sharah stained with the blood of the suicide, and gbsa proceeded with the service of the altar.

Having premiaed thus rsr we shall prooeed to speak of the drat ceremonials connected with the anniversary of the death or Snlnt Peter, as well as of the men by whom they are being conducted, and from whenoe these men come. In this connection It Is entirely appropriate that we should set out with a short return* of the more promi nent points which occurred In the life of Saint Peter? tbe principal historical character In the scene?events which, we fear, have been lost sight of to a very great extent in many of tbe churches, and which, we doubt not. the people at large will be rejoiced to And repro duced In the columns of tbe Hmuld for purposes of future reference. Tbe biographical sketch Is taken In the main from tbe New Testament, the deductions are for the most part Catholic, for belli* at preeent In Rome we act on tbe courteous maxim of doing as "Romans do," and permit the church to give bar own explanation; with these remarks we submit to oar readers ths fol lowing:? sxstcb or m un or um rim?his rnssioa a*o nun. St. Peter, tbe '-Prince of tbe Apostles,'* was originate named Simon. Bis father was a fisherman of Bethsaida, near tbe lake of Gennesaretb, In Galilee, which wss also tbe birtbplaoe oT his brother. St. Andrew. When Simon was about rorty years old hts brother presented him to our Saviour, who, receiving him as one or bis Apostles, sumamed him Cephas, which la the Byriec signifies stone, or rock. For some time St Peter did not habitnally attend our Lord on his journeys, but always went to hear him wlton he taught tbe multitude. One dav. Jesus was on the shore of the lake Gennesaretb, which is also called the Sea of Tiberias, and knowing that Peter and Andrew had all night cast their nets in vain, be told the fishermen to go rurther out fmm the shore. They did so, and so abundant was tbe take that not only their own boat, but also that of St. Jamee and St. Jebn, was filled. Peter presented hlmseir to express his gratitude, and professed nimseir unworthy to approach bis Lord. The humility or Peter procured bim a new call from Jeans. Peter's usual residence was at Capharnaum; our Lord was often there, and walking along the shore again, saw Peter and Andrew and James and John caatiwr their nets Into the sea. He again callsd upon them to follow bim, and It was on (bat occasion that from a mere fisherman Peter became, in the exact words of oar Saviour, a fisher of men. Going from Bethsaida to Caaarea. Jesus asked Peter what he thought of the Son of Man. whom some considered to be John the Baptist, and others considered te be one or tbe otber or the prophet* Peter replied in that celebrated conreailon, that Jesns wss the Christ, tbe Son or the living God. This repl* obtained for him the confirmation of the surname of Peter, and the power to bind and to looee. Peter was one of the witnesses of tbe glory of our Lord upon Mount Tabor He was pres ent at the Last Supper, aad was tbe Ant whose feet Jmos washed. In tbe pages of the inspired gospels ws see Peter in bis pbssss of man and Apostle, until the apostolic spirit dominated tbe natural temper. His Master having reproved him for sinking Malchus, Peter, timid aod fickle, forgot bis oath, but ere loeg bitterly bewailed hie fault. After the death of ear Savieur. Simon Peter has tened to tbe sepulchre. He was tbe first to enter. Hs found that Jeeut was ne longer there. Peter was also ths Orst to when, tbe Scripture informs ns, Jesus ap peared after bis resurrection. Peter, however, waa still to receive aa axproas mission, more especially coneecrat lag him to bis apostolic functions. Jesus appeared to him aad to John, when they both were eagand la fishing on the Sea or Galilee. It was then and there that Jesns, aftsr having tbrics received from Peter the acknowledg ment of his love, an tboegh to make him expiate bis tripls denial, gave bias charge of hia fiook la these words:?feed my lambs. Saint John, the beloved disciple, called Peter by ths title of Apoetle (Chap, xxi 16-17), aa baviag received from Jesus Christ, la reward of bis attachment, the Pastorate, which Salat Ambrose (on Luke xxiii.) en tit lee tbe vtcnrahlp of love. Tbe gift of that ruactioB, aa re laud by the Evnagellst, was made at the very piaoe where Jeene hsd given to Simon tbe name of Peter. Here Peter learned that, following Jeeus Christ, be would saflbv like him aad would be glorified la martyrdom. __ Peter's first sol of hierarchical jmrtodtctioa, after the Asesasioa, was tbe aasnmbllag ot a council at Jeraaaiem, at which hath tbe ApooUee aad the disciples wen pre sent The object wss lbs filllar, la the apoetollo college, the place of Jadaa Iroartot Matthias waa ehosan by lot Peter presided ovsr that assemblage, and reminded tt that the crime at Jadas bad bsea foretold by David. Peter's application of tbe Scriptures wss sgsln very felicitous when tbe dlAiplee were visited by the wondrous phenomenon of the Day ef Pentecost On that memorable day, at about nine o'clock, a great eound, like unto tbe netting ef a mighty wind, filled tbe whole place of the aseembiy. All present saw, aa It were, tonguee of fire, and they all felt themselvee fillsd by that spirit which Jesus, oa quilling them, promised tbey should be inspired with In tbe fervor and gush of tbe aeal by which they were transported their atrange aad eloqueat language astonished ths people of Jerusa lem, and even the strangers who heard them. Some of the Jews took occasion to reproach them as being In toxicated. Then Peter aroee and so earneetlv preached Christ, risen from the deed, thai three thousand persons wars converted and aaked to be baptised. Thit discourse ef Peter was at once wise snd nobis. The Apostle an nounced that In acoompliahmeat of tbe pro pbocy of Joel tbe Usae announ ed by our Lord bad arrived, and that the dlanpiex were filled with that spirit which he waa to shed apon them and upon bla servants In the eecoud coun cil seven deecons were appointed to aaslet the A post'ex in the dlatribution of alma aad la the ministry of prea b? ing. From lbs date of tha Ascension, Peter remaned flv?years la Judea. At the gate of the Temple, on Mount Sion, be restored to health a poor cripple who asked him for charity. The Saddacees sndeavorsd pub licly to arreat Peter aad Joha, who preached the reaur rectloa of our Lord. The Apoetiee, ea the ether hand preached with redoubled courage; aad Peter, previously so timid and halting la bis Ideaa, aa longer herniated boldly to ooafees the name of Jeaua before the aaaembied doctors ot the law. Tbe punishment of Aaaa as ud Sapphire, guilty of falsehood agaiaat both tbe sacred news ot their oath aad tbe spirit of Cbrlatiaalty. aad a thon aaad otber tesUmoalea to the power which dletiaguisbsd ths life of Peter, served only to irritate hia eaemtee.

Go tag tbroagh Naples he plaated tbe raith by giving to that city Saiat Asprea tor Its first bishop Arrived at Roma, tbe boly Pontiff lived la the Traete vere, near ibe site of the Churob or St Cecilia In short time Pudens, a Roman Senator, having beard the preaching or Peter, declared bimeeif converted, and the apostle was conducted te a fine palace which Pudeaa possessed upon the Mount Vlminal. Tbe capital or the world, says Feller fr. dl), appeared to Peter to bs ths best centre tor lb" propagation of tbe divine religion ol which he had become tbe chief minis ter; for Peter was aot only tbe bishop of Rome, or of Antlocb, but also the bianop of lbs church.

St. Peter came to convert Rome, that great c^y "which," assays St Leo, "by its celebrity aad power had apraad its superstitious throughout the earth was now to become, in rulfilment or the designs of God the humble disclpls or the truth, aad subsequently extend Its spiritual dominion beyond ths bounds or sncisnt empire."

The eighteen hundredth anniversary of tha death of the martyr apostle opened, consequently, yesterday morning. The day has been ever celebrated In Rome, but It 1a now being observed with unusual devotional magnificence. Tha preparations have been going on aotlvely In the city during the past six weeks, and many of tbe foreign bishops?foremost among whom waa Monslgnore Vslerga, Patriarch of Jerusalem?arrived as early as the 8th of tha month. The Vatican waa soon busy?Pope Plus tbe Ninth com manded tha celebration of public prayers, fasts, and the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament In the three patri archal basilicas?St John Lateran, 8t Peter's, and Santa Maria Magglore. The "holy crib" of the Saviour was exhibited In the last named cathedral, and oacb basilica waa successively visited by the Holy Father, accom panied by tbe members of the Sacred College, who trav elled in splendid atate, which would be exceedingly surprising to 8t. Peter coul<\he have beheld It In person. CTIT I*r*0TSII?NT8, calculated to facilitate the travel to the different churches, were set on foot and completed with a oelerity which would be worthy of useful Imitation in New York. Tha approach to the Vatican and St Pater's waa rendered more facile and agreeablo to the vast numbers expected to resort there, on foot, daring the ceremonies, from the Cls-Tib rine quarters of the olty, by tha bnllding of a temporary bridge over the river from tbe port of Ripetta, and tbe catting of a road from the right bank of the Tiber, straight tbrouth Monslgnore de M6rode s villa, to the Porta Angelica. This work was finished in good style, and la af tha greatest utility for tbe purpoeea intended. RAILROAD ACCOMODATION.

The prompt response made by the Archbishop of Parts to the rail of tbo Holy Fathsr is made the subject or an earnest canvass, not only in Rome, but generally on tbe continent.

The Pope at once decided to take upon himself tbe maintenance of eighty-Ova bishops during the oom meraorations. In consequence of the number of the bishops present, the consistories in which they took part, and which preceded the religions oelebratlon*. wars held in the atrium of St. Peter's where then* Is hill room for such an assemblage, and the prlnoaa and bankers of the oity hare vied with each other In their offers of shelter anl entertainment.

This consistory discussed the question of the canonization of the martyrs Josaphat, a Pole, Pierro Arbue* and others. Prayers and processions introductory to the final cere monial followed dally. On the next Sunday afternoon the city was irarersed in various directions by long trains of priests, monks and confraternities, and bis Holiness repaired In state <o officiate In th* Church of St. John I-amnio. Tho sacred cradle of Christ wa? ex posed to publto voneration In the Church of Santa Maria Msggiore. An interesting recurrence will, it la said, be added to the ceremonies. It Is customary in Rome for priests who have exercised their sacred office for fifty years to say mass over a?ain like a golden wedding, with all tho formalities observed br them on their first celebrating it. The Popo, it is said, means to celebrate bis metta n -velln this summer, In honor of St Peter, in Braraante's chapel adjoining the Church of Ran Pietro in Montorlo. 1 his report has, howevor. been denied by some of tho Cuthollc journals, who assort that the Pope want* two years more to complete his fiftv years of priesthood, but should be really feel disposed to dispense with that slightIt Is presumed he would hsve mil power to do 10^ His Holiness gave orders for some good rea son for the steep ascent to the Church of San Ptstro In Montorio, in Janiculnm. to bs Immediately rendered more level and prnct.csbl* for carnagos, and Ore hun dred laborers wsrs at ones engaged oa tbe work night and day. _ _ , As a consistory beld on ths 17th sf June, the Holy Father nominated three bishops, one of whom was Mon aignore Louis Haynald, appointed to tbe archbishopric of Colon za sod Baas la Hungary.

Tbe ceremony was solsmnlssd at the little temple of Brnmaate, in which ths Holy Fstbsr baa never officiated. An order was issued by ths Cardinal Vicar enjoining prayers and extraordinary lasts as a preparation for lbs oanonisatlon or ths martyrs of Jspan, and a nscond con slstorv was beld by ths Pope, pre paratory te the celebra tion of the solemn set of canonization.
