Th? Ecumenical Council?The Catholic Faith
UnchiM|MU?<
To the Editor op tub Hkhald:?
After a careful examination ot the reply to ray
letter of the 8th lnst., which appeared In jour Issue
of the 15th, 1 found it to be just what 1 expected.
I had no idea that Its author would have
the hardihood to contradict the facts which
I set forth. He utterly falls to sustain the position
lie assumed in hu first communication. Ho forgets
that he Is living in an age when a bare assertion,
without the necessary proof, must fail to give satisfaction
and fall to the ground. He says, "confirming
a certain principle is certulniy not an innovation or
change." This Is true. But when he ears that
"these articles of faith have been taught and promulgated
by the Church from the earliest periods of
- its history," It is a piece of barefaced effrontery which
haw no uurallel. aud U he means to assert that
Luther, Calvin, or any otuer Protestant, or eveu
Koiuao Catholic, wruer holds that any one 01 the
dogmas enuiueruted in my letter was known or heard
of iiofore the sixth century, he state* a positive untruth,
and the following will suffice to prove It:?
1 mauk Woitsmr. ?Tlus practice was ilrst enjoined
by the second Council of Mce, A. D. 787; but It was
not generally adopted till a much later period. The
woranip ol images is, however, enjoined by the
Council of Trent, and the creed of l'ope Pin* IV. ordalus
that "due honor and veneration are to be
given to them."
Inkali.iwlity.?This was not established as an
article of faith till a. D. 107?. But Papists cannot
agree about the seat of this infallibility, some
place it in the Pope, others place it in a general
council lawfully called, while others place it in the
rope and a general council united. Thus do they
differ on this fundamental point. But the doctrine
in overturned by the practice of their own church;
for Popes and councils contradict each other, and
what has been established by one has been condemned
by another: and I would ask if the Pope is
Infallible where is this infallibility, wlieu there were
three rival Popes at the sauie tune, each excominuu
mating the other f
Transubstantiation.?Papists assert that when
the words of consecration are pronotraccd by the
Eriest "there is truly, really and substantially the
ody and blood of Christ." (Creed of Pope Pius IV.)
In Id* fourth Latcrau Council, A.D. 1216, it was decreed
that the elements were changed, and the term
trausubstanitattou first introduced. This question
was not fully decided till the Counoll o! Trent,
Tub saukikics of tub Mass.?The Papists worship
the wafer after it Is consecrated, affirming it to
be Christ, and that in it a true sacrifice is otlered up
to God. Thus, acoording to the Church of Home, the
priest creates a saviour, who is continually ottered
in the mass. This was determined as an article ol
faith by the Council of Trent, and U is so stated in
the creed of Pope Pins IV.
aukiciI.ar Confession.?The Churoh of Home
declares practically that stu cannot be pardoned unless
the sinner confess to a priest, litis practice
commenced only iu the thirteenth century.
Sbhticb in tub Latin Lanuimuk Wmcn tbb
Pboi-lb do not Understand.?It is singular that
there never was a decree of a oounoli In furor of tlus
practicc; but, on the contrary, the fourth Lateran
Council, A. D. 1215, decreed that divine services
should be celebrated lu the vulgar tongue of every
nation. In this instance Rome acts In opposition to
the decrees of her oouncils.
Tub Papal hitklm acy?At the close of the sixth
century Gregory, Blsuop of Home, asserted that "he
is anti-Ohrlst who styles himself universal." At
tntt time the Bishop of Constantinople assumed the
title, and the Bishop oi Boms condemned it. Phocas,
a most erne) tyrant, had murdered his master, the
Emperor, and Boniface 111. supported him in his
treason. In retnrn for this Phocas, A. D. sob, conferred
the title of universal bishop on Boniface and
[ bis successors. From that time the Popes appro- j
ipriaiou uwuihmn auutmwito ?w .u...
supremacy, but u was Dot waue an article of faith
until A. l>. tsie by toe Laterua Ooanal.
SEVKN Sacraments.?Our Lord instituted two
only?Baptism and (be Lord's Supper. The others
togan to be wilted of In the twelfth century, and not
earlier. Peter Lambert, one of the schoolmen, was
the first who mentioned the number seven. This
deetrlne, however, was not made an article of latth
l>elore the Council of Trent, A. D. 1847.
Half Communion.?In the Church of Rome the
sacratneutai oup w not administered to the Uuty, nor
even to the priests, unless they officiate. Tula is a
new doctrine. It was only established as an article
of faith A. D. 1416, la the Council of Constance.
Pus4atory, ?Thn doctrine was not talked of before
A. D. ooo. Two centuries later a lew persons
only received It. It waa not sanctioned by a couucil
til A. D. 1488. _
lNDiLOKSCB ok Pardons.?These were made a
natter of gross speculation and abase as early as
the eleventh, twellth a.id thirteenth centuries. They
were not made an article of laiUi uutu the Council
I of Treat.
Tub Apocryphal Books.?These books were
I never received by the Jews. They are distinguished
from the otner books by the early fathers. They are
at this day rejected by the Greek Church, as well as
by Protestants; in matters of doctrine they were
' never admitted into the sacred canons, even by toe
Church of Kom?, until A. 1). 1646.
Thr Invocation ok Saints and Angels.?This
doctrine was not admitted into tbe liturgies of the
Church till the seventh century. To address prayers
to the virgin and to tne salute is to substitute them
as mediators In the place of Christ. We are commanded
in the scriptures to come directly to Uod,
m prayer. <lo pray to saints and angels, therefore,
Is an act of disobedience to the divine command.
Intention?The I'aptstssay that unless the bishop
or priest really intends to ordain or to consecrate no
ordluation or consecration takes place, and thus the
validity oldlvme ordinances Is made to depend on tbe
caprice of a slntul mortal. The doctrine is absurd
as It is new?for It wus only established a. P. 1647.
Venai, and Mortal sins.?By the former Papists
nean those which do not deserve severe punishment;
but there is uo such distiuction m uie Bible.
This notion was Invented by tbe schoolmen, nnd
talked of In the twelitn, tnmeenth and lourteenth
centuries: but it was not established as an article of
faith till the Council of Trent.
The Papists cannot, tlicrelore, plead earlv tradlI
lions for une of tbe false doctrines in the creed of
Pom Pius IV. They cannot produce one single
father in each successive age, froui the time of
Christ to the seventh century, who maintains the
doctrines of their new creed. An the fathers of
] tbe first three centuries are unanimous m their
testimony as to the fumess and sutnciencyof the
I Holy scriptures. Papists Cannot tell us where
wo are to nun lucir iruuuious, lor no uuiuuiuic
collections have ever been publisned oy their Church;
they talk, therefore, of traditions, and yet do not point
them out to the world, billi the poor Fnplst is taught
to believe thai the false doctrine* or tun Cnurcii are
ancient and true; lie may next prepare himself to
Bear from the lips or hia confessor that tho doctrine
i of the Immaculate Conception was lausjlna'irt tnctii1
cated m the days of the Apostles. The Catholic layoiau
tlimks It very bad policy for Protestants to read

secret In this case la that they are airaid some ot
. their abused notions may coma to light. With regard
to tho "Immense number of conversions" to the
r Romish laith the reverse is the case; but this has
been answered by abier pens than mine. (Hue Dr.

The following extracts are taken from the concluding
portions ofthe address:?
Mv brethren of the Orthodox Catholic Church of
America, for such Is your real character, ami such is
precisely what is meant oy the terms "Protestant
Episcopal." you hare world-wide relations and Interests
which aro, at thla moment, becoming more
arid more Important to yon and to your
cinldreu. We proless to believe In '-one
Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church," and
our faith la this respect must now beroiifl
more and more practical. The whole I
world in moving, the cnurch of Ood. in every part, j
is moving unaer tno Influences of His Holy Spirit.
If l bail Hie time I should feel U my duty to apeak to
you largely on these points. I shall reserve what I
wish to aay. however, (or a Pastoral .letter, which,
it life be spared, I propone to address to you before
long. You ouirbt to watch and to understand
your epo?a. our Journalists and their foreign
correspondents have never made the church a
study, and hence they "darken counsel by words
without knowledge in nearly all thor write about
ecclesiastical aiiairs. The disestablishment of the
Irish Church; what does It meanf Why, simply
this?that the orthodox Catholic Cnarch of Ireland,
its Historic Church, the Church or 8U Patrick and St.
Colombia, that Church from whloh the
simple and the ignorant Irian peasantry
nave been beguiled by a modern and intrusive
Popish mission, bnt to which they
will now begin to return?that Churcli is emancipated
and plaoed where God meant Uu Church to
stand, free from kings and free from popes, just
Where the Nicene Church stood and Just wnere we
stand. They have robbed her and despoiled her;
btit what of itf It Is a small price to pay for freedom
; and God grant that the Irish bishops may feel
and understand their glorious liberty, and henceforth
assert their apostleshtp in the spirit of Cjprlan
and Athanasius, and or the old time before them 1
i So as to ilte cast and west of Europe. A weak
I pontiff at Home haa been led to summon a council
to which tie vainly endeavors to fix the credit of
being "ecumenical." He baa done a very fooiUh
thine for his own Ideas, bat Ood has already overruled
It for the most glorious awakening of t tie true
catholic spirit, the spirit of the creed and the gospel.
The Oriental bishops, Greek, Armenian and Russian,
have spoken In tones worthy of their ancient sees,
rebuking the pontiff for his presumption and
reminding htm that no Ecumenical Council
was ever summoned by n Bishop of Kome.
But, thank Ood. a council of the Trent bishops
has been caled, and Ood grant that they
may assemble. Pins IX. seems born to break down
the Trent system by working It to death. He will
drive Europe into a reformation by his etiorts to
fallen the shackles of the Middle Ages on the mil
trown limbs of the Church or the nineteenth centary.
et your prayers go up to Ood continually and
anitedly for the whole Church or Christ, and pray
inr the hlnhona now about to meet at Rome, that this
Holy Spirit mar Indeed come down upon them.
Then wo shall hoe a different result from that wlueU
la intended, for "where the spirit of the Lord is
there Is liberty."
The Work of Man's Redemption?A Few
UtoplM Ideas.
To tiib Editor op tub Hirax.d:?
In response to your correspondent who complains
that I hare "failed to Inform us how or when man
can be redeemed from the burdens which lie so
heavily upon him" I will offer the following lncontrovertlots
facta, from which he' will probably bo
able to derive the desired information:?
Ttie cleray. or rather the Church, which Inclndea
the clergy, can be, aa it always has been, of laesuamble
service In the work of man's redemption; and
I am almost persuaded that the movement which is
now going on la the church will speedily result in
the consummation of the work whlcn Christianity
was inaugurated to accomplish?the redemption ol
tne world from "the sin whictt so easily besets"?
coretousness. Men covet riches that they may lire
In luxury and comparative idleness upon the product
or other men's industry, which la doing unto
others as tner least desire that others should do uuto
them. To redeem the world from this siu it Is
obviously necessary to create a necessity for men to
do by others as they wish to be done by. The Church
has oeen so completely successful In the effort to
persuade men that this Is the outy right principle
for men to act upon, that every ono you meet, if
questioned, will admit a desire that Its practice be
be at once and universally adopted. The only objection
offered ts, "how cau It oe adopted t" To tats
objection I would reply:?By making governments
the business agents or and strictly responsible to
their peoples. Beginning with tanking them
our banking and commercial agents, we would remove
this most oppressive braueh of speculation
Iroin the control of Irresponsible individuals, and
place It under the immediate supervision of the people's
responsible agents, by whom a circulating medium
of exchange could oe provided, and agents appointed
to employ u in the Interests of tne whole
people by purchasing commodities from the producer
and disposing or them to the consumer, which
would place the people In a position to make the
cost or production the standard of prices; and tho
profits arising from business transactions would assume
the character or a government tax levied upon
consumption to increase the revenue and he disbursed
lu payment of government llabihttea, instead
or a tax levied by irresponsible Individuals
upon a people's necessities, to bullu up a monopoly
or wealth. This arrangement, by depriving individuals
or the monopoly or the most eflective machinery
ror drawing wealth from other men's labor,
will create a necessity for their doing for themselves
what all are willing and ev?u denlre that
nMipra ahmilrl dn for tham hut urlilph nmm nf ua ara
satisfied to do for others?laoor lor men support and
eurlcliment. In view of the simplicity 01 tltia plan
and the mm with which it can be eniorced, and the
strenuous but misdirected efforts which men are
making to relieve themselves of the burdens which
speculation imposes upon them, we will hardly fail
to realize a vivid perception of the probability that
the question of man's redemption will i? forced
upon our atteutiou la this .'orin sooner or later, and
Del levin# that the sooner will be the better, 1 propose
to present It in this form now and flprht it out
on that line. Who's afraid t Certaiulr tho Church
ought not lo be, for to reduce tne theory of doing
unto others as we would have others do unto us, to
practice will be the crowning glory of the christian
religion as typified by the second coining of Christ
to reign upon the earth King of Kings and Lord ol
I.ords. They are but aorry students of tha liible 01
of Nature who suppose that either teaches that He
will over ooine in person; hut where His principles
are practised there is lie in spirit, truth and power.

Tlierc happened lo arrive one dar at a country Inn
a Catholic priest, a Methodist minister, ft Preebytenan

was announced as ready, to which all.repaired, noi
knowing in the meantime of eaoh otber'a presence,
on seating themselves the rabbi, noticing the food to
be contrary to his laws for eating, politely requested
a separate table, and to be served according to hli
orders. After a self-Introduction, and their custom
ary ooremonles before moaif finished, a.pleaaant oon

preacher and minister, each trying to avoid as mucti
as possime, toucuing on religions mailers; inn Wlior

self as to the fairness of tue thing, and
tii* Methodist felt satisfied that taere vu no prq|udice
or motive in It. The I'resbyterian continued
and, addressing the Catholic, said:?"My rirlend have

and similarly addressing the Methodist, lie received a

nave also chosen a number on which 1 will

chosen by the Catholic, he placed it on the position
designated on the drawn triangle, acting likewise
toward the Methodist. Then, telling Ills own
choseu number, placen it on the position he took on i
the triangle. "Now," he aaid, "if we add the Catholic
und Methodist numbers and place the amount be- I
tween the positions they have, and likewise add the
Catholic and myself, then attain add the Methodist
and mvseif, placing the amounts respectively between
the positions the numbers have, we shall have
the amount of any two numbers or religions, vis a

Catholic ana Methodist reunions with the Presbyterian,
and place the whole amount in the enclosed
space which we agreed upon as heaven.
Doing the same with the combined Catholic atiu
Presbyterian ami adding the Methodist; ami again
with the amount of the combined Methodist and
Presbyterian and adding the Catholic; and having
the whole amounts in our agreed heaven, you perceive
they are all equal." Having finished, he left, It
to the Catholic and Methodist to acknowledge the
truth ofihe same, which they did. But, In the
meantime, the Jewish rabbi was an attentive
listener, and also becoming imbued with Its truth remarked,
"Geutlemea, it is very true, but allow mo
to say a word for the religion I represent, it is universally
conceded that my religion Is the oldest;
that you kuow very well; and as lrom the tree the
branches come, so I contend do yoar religions spring
up out of mine; and If you take each of your faiths
singly and combine them, I will accept the result for
my religion." It was done, and the amount being
I exactly like the others that were obtained, the ltabbl
was also placed la the agreed heaveu. Toe four
gentlemen being duly impressed with the simplicity
and truth of the example, and wishing each other
peace in mind and body, retired.

Neither will they care, perhaps, to know that the
uost crowded watering place as yet Is Aix, In Savoy,
and that the prettiest toilets worn there are
white muslins over green, blue, salmon, coral, pearl,
or etraw flounced jteitlcoau, which arc glued, and
shine through underneath just like the rainbow, or,
if thay will believe It, like sunrise or sunset, or
moonlight, With a gauzy ltazo llko Bierstaut's
"Bridal Veil." This id all very pretty; but
being a bachelor, I repeat, it may not interest tnem
at all, especially if, being tied down to business,
they are quite blue about not being able to go to
either the sweet, bitter or salt waters ol the Beason.
It would be vain to enliven them by the communication
that the future shooting season is to be
splendid?they know it; it can but increase their
subdued exasperation, and it Is a theory in high
life never to aggravate beyond endurance, f will
only say as much about Aix as a man can endure.
The women are going about there in character?
that t?, some as Malntenons, the blondes, in flowing
silky black drapery and mantillas; some as Grand
Duchesses, In a coarse silk called arinure, such a
pretty steel gray with violet faciugs, and tralus with
ri sers; some are Malcontents, with high hats that
are looped on one side by a flue velvet bow and
plumed at tuo lop. Mine. Musard walks about as a
swlss maud, bat in no dulry sort of material; for her
skirt is made short of black lace, her bodice or black
velvet and her snowy chemisette is lold on told or
cambric and Insertion; her liulr In long thick plaits
hangs down to her wulst. Her headdress with this
is Bernese?that is, a large butterfly bow on the top
or lier chignon. Thus we have quite a gamut or
styles; but I am aware my Information, howuver
startling to ladies, has not succeeded in stirring one
ol the facial muscles peculiar to that sex which is
the reverse or "fair."
Home or the ideas in my next period may produoe
a more genial feeling. Aix, the present resort of
high Ule, is ramous for its casino and springs, but
more ror all the Imagery poets find so useful?cascades,
torrents, meadows, rocks, hills, clinging
vines, upland and woods, morning and evening
haze, rainbow shade in abundauce and a
terrace. There is a chateau, too, built in the
Komanie style, aud it would be romantic,
besides, If the mania or reconstruction bod not suggested
the atrocious idea of a modern balcony and
nrriutii aliuttara. Tuis on a suuare. massive, untluua
building w reconstruction Indeed. It was built by a
terrible mau, A?n<kUie do bavoie VI., whom surname
wua <;rean I Comte Vert iu I'rench; Count or Earl
Green in our own ultoia. THU does elicit a mil*?a
faint one. That a man up lu the nineteenth century
should bave been grecu, and have gloried iu the
color, doe? not seem to Indicate thatEuropeau ancestors
were very acuta; but, gentlemen, tlie smile
and litis supposition are equally out of place. Allow
tue, Am^ue? de Huvoie the Sixth by nauie, was
called green simply because he was bright,
, not soft; and lie was called bright becuu.se
j on one occasion?it was tor a tournament
at Chamber*?he came into the fle;d on a green

tue plague, which historloul lact shows ths itnpro5
prlety of laughing at this abode in wrong places;
and it conveys a moral?wo may all turn greener

' bccaase it cm- be worn with any colored

utiy bows to match. Still the women are terribly
stiff and affected. At lat>le <Phott the conversation
is generally die-away, favorable perhaps to long, up'
turned laanes, but not French in the Tronville sense
Q oi the word. One of the prettiest toilets l have seen
n here was a coral red taffeta, with six flounces
pinked out and that cam* hau way np to the knees;
over this a cssaque of unbieaebod silk; looped with
'* black faille bowB, and tne same material was emr
ployed for the punf sash behind; the casaqne was
< buuuuod down on the left aide of the bosom, a la
Polonaise, with coral buttons. The toquet with tbis
. was black, with coral shaded roses and a curling
plume, which lay flat on the crown and fell over the
1 | oabie-plaued chignon. The under linen was all
Valenciennes; tue jeweiry corai. Anotner loveiy

and Valenciennes irw square, with pagoda sleeves;
at tne elbow they were confined by a velvet bracelet,
and a large velvet bow rortucd the centre of the

round her white Blender throat, with a pear-shaped
5earl sospendert irom a bow in iront. tier headresa
was a bit of Valenciennes and bandelets of
veivet. Her ornaments pearls.
The great fault or Atx Is the coterie of ladles
whose business In llie seems to be to beg
lor the elergv. The d'Aiie have a vestry
atmosphere auout them not favorable to the
ameuities ol table taiit. We are all fond of
the ciergy and the poor lu their proper
places; but is u a way to make us all the fonder by
suddenly in the ueart of a dialogue getting us asked
for three loula, which sum is to go towards the completion
of a church steeple ? Personally I do not object
to church steeples?they point upwards sometimes
verv appropriately?but it |g not pleasaut to bo
called upon tor a contribution wnen one has noming
but small cnange in one's vest poclcet, and In such a
circumstance to be told by aidoiultiw that the sacril

the now reservoir, from which the upper part of the
island will be supplied with water. This structure
rents upon the crest of the cliff like a crown
of ((Old, its red embankments not yet having
been grassed over with sod. When the spectator
arrives at a point a lew hundred yards from the
bridge the landscape on every hand breaks into
scenes of indcacrloable loveliness. On the Westcheater
side of the Harlem river beautifully shaded
glades, with the tall elma and the upright oaks, the
mooiitaln ash and the Lombardy poplar, extend
away towards the northern sky over a rolling and
mountainous surface, which la marked by a network
of devious paths and serpentine roads, whose directions
lead to lorty spires and aniqae styles of architecture.
Fruit trees, aviaries, rookeries and singular
masses of dark green forest trees, with broad
meadows and endless stretches of drive, mark
tbia wonderfully beautiful district, which,
it must be said, seems to possess all the
charms that delight the eye, with everything
grand or beautiful In nature. Sloping gently
to the river's edge ta the well trimmed lawn, covered
by huge blocks of granite, which In their position
heighten the effect, ana together with the other
elemenu of the landscape give the prospect a
strange yet beautiful diversity.
Letting the ere sweep around to southward
of the bridge, upon the bank can be seen
thousands of excursionists, who daily repair
to this quarter to eoofy themselves in quiet
picnics aud sequestered walks. Yesterday the
number was unusually larae, because ul the fine

depth of elghteeu feet, and wide embankments,
through the centres ot which are puddle walls made
of clay, and capable of hs rdeuingso as to prevent tin
leakage of the water and resist its pressure. Tht
water will be pumped up from the main aqueduci
coming over the bridge, which has a diameter oi
seven and u half feet, into smaller mains leading tc
the reservoir, by enormous engines made by the
eminent engineer, Mr. W. E. Wortheu, who has

will be pumped Is a p rpeudicular height of 110 feet,

application of power. There are two gate
houses, the Influent and the affluent, which are built
of solid and durable masonry. Besides this reservoir
n tower is being built, the foundation having
already been laid, to carry water up to a height of

that the highest points on the Island can be supplied.
The loftiest point is on Wasinngton Heights, and

SPBINQHKLD, August 16, 1M0.
The weather, which for some time paat has been
dry and hot, took a turn this morning, and a rain
storm, much needed, set In. Tho crop* hereabout
were sadly in need of this change, and the manufacturers
also will welcome it with gratitude. In this
section of the State the factories have not been ma
terlaily Impeded ao tar as watt.' waa concerned, although
there were fear* that such wonid be ih<
case. But In the eastern section of the State and in
New Hampshire the mills have been greatly retarded
In their business by the partial failure of the watei
oourses, which, owing to the long continued ah
sence or rain, had become in some Instances nearij
dry. This dlillculty will, of courso, be alleviated bj

The political horizon of MnBBachusotts has assumed
a mixed aspect. Niggerheads and copperheads,
republicans and democrats, prohibitory ana licence
men, and woman's lights exponents, some in petticoats
and soma in breeches, are holding conventions
and making preparations for a grand political
grab bag. The democratic convention will be the
flret to meet, and John qutney Adams will, ol
coarse, be the gubernatorial candidate, notwithstanding
the many denials in circulation, and Governor
Claflln will probably be the choice of the republicans.
Claim's election la certain, although by
a reduced majority of many thousands. The republicans
In thU state are very busy fomenting disorder
In their own ranks, and there will be a lively rumpua
tn their state convention when it comes to meet,
between tne prohibitory and the license factions, unless
something Is done ere It assembles to ooucuiate
the different wings. There is one thing certain,
however, and that la that the opposition will gatn
largely in the Legislature, probably enough to
sweep this prohibitory law from the statute Books.
The democratto vote will bo largely augmented by
soreheads from ttte republican party and by the
votes of thousands of trade* unions, wno are dissatisfied
with the manner in which a republican legislature
treated the organization of the Kutghta of St.
Crispin last winter. And If a change oould come
o'er the spirit of our political dreams and an economical
legislature be thereby elected, regardless ol
party bonds, It would be a godsend to thia suffering
commonwealth. We are getting tired of seeing millions
of dollars voted away year after year to establish
corrupt railroad corporations.
