Cor ?-? e Health of the Holy Father Improving: SUNSHINE AND CATHOLIC REJOICINGS. Clerical Hopes and the Relations Between the Vatican and the Qnirinal. FAFJL SECLUSIONS AND ITS EFFECTS. Pio Kono'i Crutch and the Story Con nected with It The Effect of Wearing a Sanctified Stocking. . , RoiM, May 1, 1873. Tie days of gloom are Apparently over?not only In relation to the weather at Rome, bat to the millions of Catholics In all countries or the globe who for tbe past month have been anxiously wait ing lrom hour to Hour for the receipt of dreaded ?ewe from the Vatican. The doctors declared weeks ago tbat Pio Nono could be pronounced recovered as soon as the warm, or rather the ??nuy, weather should return, and to-day?May ?ay?we have the long-expected clear blue sky, irlU Its fleecy clouds, at which joy must reign In .the Vatican. For the past few days my reports from across the river have been of such an assuring nature that I did not think it worth while to tele graph them. A few days ago His Holiness attended mass in his private chapel. Nearly every day for the past week he has received distinguished ecclesias tical visitors, and haB transacted much business connected with temporal and spiritual things. To-day, as I write, he is to walk for the Urst time in the Vatican Garden?the extent of tbe Papal temporal dominions. On the 6 th of May it Is announced that ne will celebrate mass, and on the 13th (bis birthday) will give audience to tbe Catholic deputations bringing congratulations upon his safe recovery. POPULAR SYMPATHY FOR THE RBVKREND 8CFFKRER. The late illncsH of the Holy Father has had, in more than one respect, Important influences in toning down or removing the hostile spirit that many of the liberals of Italy felt towards him. His IHaess has called out a great deal of sympathy for the suffering Pontiff from nearly all classes of the population. King Victor Emmanuel himself has ?ent one of the masters of ceremonies of his Court everjr day, sometimes twice a day, to the Vatican, to inquire alter tbe health of His Holiness. This has produced a very favorable Impression In Vati can circles, which I find likewise expressed by nearly all tbe high Roman ecclesiastical digni taries. This improvement in the relations between the Vatican and the Quirinal is, however, conflued, perhaps, only to the persons of the Holy Father and His Majesty. ITALIAN UMITY. The same hopes of the restoration of the tempo ral power are held in clerical quarters as ever In deed, 1 am Inclined to the view that they grow stronger, In Just the same proportion, It seems to me, as Its probabilities decrease. The Vatican still considers the Qulrlual government as an usurper and looks forward to the time when the defunct Italian States shall be once more pulled out of the ?Ure, the deposed kings and princes placed once more on their thrones, and the Pope, of course, on Jus. This view is general among tbe clerical party of Rome. I have been surprised at hearing the great plans, or rather hopes, which are entertained by prominent men of their number. A confedera tion of Italian States is tbe aim of the cleri cal party. Yet I think it ia an Utopian dream, In lew of the present state of feeling in Italy. ?aid Italian liberal to me:?"Such a thingwoald be led by the whole of Italy. And as to the tem power being restored, who is to do it if Italy ?tot r?and she will not. The traditions of tbe people tend to oppose the establishment of ' ipal temporal power. No man ever wrote so Jgly against it as Dante; and Macchlavelll, l?g three centarles ago, traces the causes of 'dan disunity to its Influence. The German Gregorovlus says that the temporal power has al ways kept Italy divided.

A verv good anecdote Is circulating at the v?m ?an. When the I'ope asststed at mass a tew <i??l ?go In his little private chapel he was led Thither two members of his cvtrt. Wima abcHt leave the chape) he suddenly turned to one of the two and told him to hand him a crutch, telling ' them that they would find it In a certain place, which they did. Now, there Is a tale or curious Import attached to that crutch. Some yea re ago there was a young man In France named Outran, who had a congenital affection in hla leIt leg, so that bis whole limb was bent up and could not be straightened. Us parents ^ere of course very muoir afflicted; but ue doctors cOuld do nothing. A Ml irtend or tne raiuTiV, nOw?veL, A Y9n de * vont Catholic, had heard something ofthe e.xtraor-' dinary cures effected by tte blessing of the Pone, and lelt convinced that if she could get any article of apparel that had been at any time worn by His Holiness and apply this to the lame Mmb some marvellous result would come from it. Shu visited Home and succeeded, in fact, in procuring A STOCKING that had been regularly worn by the Holy Father, and this she took to France and had the afflicted young man wear it. The effect was miraculous. Tne crooked limb grew better, and in a short space of time the young ipan could walk as well as any body else. Some time arterwards the boy and his father cumo to Rome, bringing with them the crutch that the former had earlier worn. The Pope received them in a special audience. Tbey tonl him all about the wonderful care that bad been effected by the wearing of the sanctified stocking. He listened good naturedly, and when tbey had finished said, in his characteristic way"This is Indeed a very strange thing. I wore that stocking for two long years, and it never did me any good." This Btory comes from such a reliable source that I repeat it here. The fact of the cure having taken place in a remarkable manner is not to be doubted. As to how far faith and the Holy Father's stocking bad any influence iu effecting the cure?this 1 leave undiscussed. LE1IH4JTOH AVENUE SYNAGOGUE. The Difference Between Will aad Desire In Religion?The Lord'i Help ftr Hla People?Sermon bjr Rev. Dr. Haebach. A large and lashionable congregation gathered In this synagogue yesterday and listened to an able discourse by the eloquent rabbi on the differ ence between the desire and the will in respect to religion. His text was 11. Kings vl., id?"Fear not, for those that be with us are more than they that are with them." This was the answer of Eliaha to his trembling and fearful servant when the latter announced that the Syrian host had the oity sur rounded, Intent npon the capture of the prophet who had revealed their secrets to the King of Israel. "Alas, my master 1" said the servant, "what shall we do?" The servant saw only the hosts of the enemy, but his eyes were blinded so that he could not see the celestial army who camped round about the prophet and covered the hillside with their com panies. It seems from the narrative that the ser vant doubted the words of Eliaha, for the prophet bad to pray that the Lord would open his eyes that he might see the UOSTS OP THE LORD CAMPBD ABOUND him. Tho Doctor said he would not undertake to explain the miraculous features of this narrative. AH such efforts to reduce the miracles of the Scriptures to the mere consequences of natural causes are vain and unprofitable. It conduces union more to our spiritual welfare to investigate the sound moral kernel ol truth enveloped in the pithy saying of the prophet?more are they that be with us than they that be with them. All moral defects under which we labor are the fruits of weakness and menial incapacity to resiBt; and this incapacity exists so long as our eyes are opened to see only the strength of the enemy that we may have to combat. But as soon as our eyes are opened to see the hosts which the Lord has commissioned to help us, the power or resistence is increased a thousand-fold. The will Is aroused and we can only rely upon the force of our moral powers. The will is the test of man's strength and worth. And yet nothing Is more common than lor men to conioundtwo Widely different perceptions Tins WlLI. AND TUB DRSIRB. There la as great a distance between them as there is between strength and weakness. The will takes the inchoate wish and desire and moves them into thecouipletest results, while the wish. Independent of the will, is ever grasping after the shadow and losing the substance. The desire is a child of the heart, lurnlshed with wings, with which it is perpetually soaring above the earth, and building its castles in the air, while the will is the strong arm and the brave soul that is gradually but certainly developing into its ultimate and com Slete manhood. The wish is like the bottomless arrel with which the condemned toils to drain the ocean dry. The will is the spade that digs until the sterile ground becomes productive. And as different as their natures are, so different, also, are their results. It is an old adage that no man has ever died with half his wishes ralfliiod. But or the will, the Psalmist has said that God will rulfil the will of those ttiat fear Him, and will also hear their prayer and save them. Tq, pray and to will is the staff upon which the weary traveller leans for sup port, while to pray and to wish Is as if a man should say to his staff, "Walk thou and I wiH lie down and rest, and when you come to our destination awaken me." To will is the muscular motion or the soul; to wish merely Is as neuralgia to the mind. The former is the host that is for us; the latter against us. And greater are they that be for us than those that be against us. And yet a large majority or men cherish the wish and the desire, while a compara tive few cultivate the will power. And when they become entangled In the enemy's snares they say, as did the prophet's servant, ALAS I WHAT SHALL W1 DOt Take the prophet's answer and open yonr eyes to the host tnat is on our side. Wherever I sec moral evil exalting Itself, aald the Doctor, I read also the words or the Prophet Eliaha?"More are tliey that be for us than against ua." The hoary headed man plucKS from the struggles of lite a flower when he brings to tbe decline of years a will strong in faith and confidence In God. But too many or us trust to our eyes and not to our laith and will, aud too often all or ua fall Into the error or the prophet's servant. The Doctor made a fit ting application or the text to his congregation. Whom he urged not to wulit so much by sight ana so little by raith, but to pray that their spiritual eves may be opened that they might see the help that God has provided for every one of ua in doing right. RECEPTION AT THE CHILD REH'8 FOLD; The reception at the children's Fold, 437 East Fifty-eighth street, came off yeaterday afternoon. There are about forty children taken care of in the lnatitntion, which la very amall, being cramped into tbe limited confines of a amall brown stone house. The exercises consisted of singing and little recitations by the children, many of whom were not more tnan five years old. The institution has been in ex istence Just seven years and has grown from a small beginning inte a concern of some Import ance. The principal says that if awnole block were occupied by tne institution no space would be lost, for hundreds of applicants are turned, away every week for lack ol room to accommodate them. The cnildrcn in the house do all the work and cleaning, thus obviating the necessity of employing paid help. They look cheerful, clean and happy, and acquitted themselves quite creditably. kicked to death. The Inquest In the Case of Michael McCabe, Alleged to Have Been Klekci to Death by Patrick Brady?A Verdict Exonerating Brady?The Wldpw Asks God To Be the Judge of the Jury I Coroner Keenan held an Inquest yesterday at the Twentieth precinct station concerning the death of Michael McCabe, alleged to have been kicked to death by Patrick Brady on Tuesday last. William F. Klntzlng and Mitchell Laird for the prosecution, and Messrs. Howe k Hnmmel, coun sel for Brady, were present at the Infuest. Mrs. McCabe, widow of the deceased, who was dressed In deep mourning and seemed to be greatly agi tated, stated that her hosband came to their bouse, 466 West Forty-second street, at eight o'clock on ;he morning of the 20th mst.; he laid down on the floor, complained of violent pain, and said, "That brute, Brady, has murdered mo;" he became worse, and died at live o'clock next morn ing. James O'Shea, a butcher at 606 West Fortieth street., testified that he saw the two come out of an alleyway near bit place to the front of his premises; they were quarrelling and Brady kicked him behind; ttiey separated ana Brady went to his business, while McCabe went borne. Sergeant Bnddlntrton related how he had arrested Brady, and stated that the latter had confessed to having kicked McCabe, but denied having kicked him in the abdomen. Dr. Malonev, wbo attended McCabe, testified that he found him with tiernla, which McCabe had just succeeded In rednctng himself. He complained of pain In the abdomen and was suffering from high fever. Dr. Wooater Beach, who had made the post-mortem examination, said he had found a rupture in the small Intestine, allowing the exit of its contents, which causcd peritonitis, from which he died. The iurjr retired, and the foreman annonnoed that McCabe died from a rupture of the Intes tines. Dr. Beach?Why, yon have misunderstood my testimony. 1 distinctly stated that McCabe died from violence. Foreman?Well, the jury find no evidence im plicating Brady In causing the death of McCabe. Dr. Beach (scarcely above bis breath)?Well, I do. Foreman?Wen, that's the voice of the whole Jury. coroner?The verdict of the jury compels me to discharge you, Brady. Brady (a stout, strong man, with a red face)? 1 thank you, Mr. Coroner, and gentlemen of the ^ (ioroner?I have nothing to do with It; It's all the doings of the Jury. Mrs. MoCabo?Brady was the death of my hus band. 1 know he has money, and 1 am but a poor, distressed widow. God has this in Mis hands. Brady is the murderer of my man.

The Stock Market Bui), but with a Firm Undertone. Money Easy and Foreign Ex change Lower. THE MOVEMENT OF COTTON. Government Securities Steady and in Good Demand. Wall Street, i Saturday, May 24?6 P.

The Utal imports of foreign merchandise at the port of New York for the past week were $8,686,318, made up of $1,479,40? of dry goods and $7,106,811 of genera! merchandise. TUB COTTON MOVEMENT. The total receipts of cotton at all the ports for the past week were 34,044 bales, against 41,031 bales the previous week, making the total receipts since September 1, 1872, 3,378,614 bales, against 2,641,119 bales last year?an Increase in the present crop of 737,395 bales. The exports from ail the ports during the week were 42,642 bales, against 28,838 bales lor the same period last year. The total exports for the expired portion of the cotton year are 2,315,874 bales, against 1,836,262 bales last year. The stock at all the ports is 327,629 bales, against 211,020 bales in 1872. T1IE BANK STATEMENT. The bank statement is unfavorable, inasmuch as it shows a falling off in specie and legal tenders, an expansion in loans and an increase of deposits. The surplus reserve, therefore, shows an impair ment of pretty nearly $900,000. The loss in specie is trifling and scarcely worth mentioning. The loss in legal tenders is not readily explained, font Is in actual contrariety to the usual current of the money market at this season of the year. Still, the amount is not so very large and the dilTerence may have occurred in the system of averages of the banks in connection with the payment for the government gold this week, for which the Treasury required 60 per cent to be paid in legal tenders. This fact alone ought to explain the disparity. In deed, it more than accounts for it. These are the only notable features of the statement, the changes otherwise being nominal. The statement, with its predecessor of last week, is given below: ? May 17. May 24. Loans $278,074,400 $279,846,300 Specie 20,698,900 20,632,600 Circulation 27,489,200 27,493,800 Deposits 207,834,100 209,762.300 Legal tenders....! 43,102,200 42,762,900 The ohantree for the week have been as follows Increase in loans $1,771,900 Decrease in specie 66..100 Increase in circulation 4,aoo Increase in deposits 1,928.axi Decrease in legal tenders 349,300 The above figures show that the banks now hold $4,071,476 in excess of the reserve required by law? a decrease for the week ot $898,800. THB FOREIGN MARKET. London advices continue favorable and reflect about the same condition of affairs reported yester day. Consols were 93%, >66's 91X, new lives steady at 89% a 89% and ten-forties at 88% a 88%. In the new French loan the premium still stands at 3% per cent. Paris rentes were a shade stronger, being quoted at 64.96. The increase of sped# in the Bank of France to-day was 600,000 francs. The London market is reported dull. The statement by private telegram was to the effect that money is worth to-day 7 per cent at Frankfort and 6% per cent at Berlin, and farther that the Bank of Prussia will probably so adjust its rate of discount aa to keep up the drain on English gold, which bad been partially checked by the directors of the Bank of England. TOE MONET MARKET. Nothing new ts to be said concerning this depart ment of the Btreet. Money was freely offered at 4, 6, e and 7 per cent for call loans, and 7 to 9 per cent for prime mercantile paper. The latter, however, is becoming scarce. The Treasury balances In Washington at the close of the week were as fol lows :? Currency $4,330,000 Coin 76,100,000 Certificates 20,600,000 Outstanding legal tenders 860,306,000 FOKEIUN EXCHANGE is dnll and lower. The leading drawers have re duced the rates % per ceut.

GOLD STRONG?118% A 118%. The evidences of the anticipated "squeeEe" in gold have not yet appeared, and the mind of the street Is as much disturbed by tbe possibilities or the present bullish assault as ever. If plans have been formed for the future they have not yet developed! and speculation as to their purpose would be simply idle. The market opened at 118%, and during the entire day advanced but % per cent. The pending complication in France between Thiers and the opponents of his adminis tration, and a foreknowledge of another shipment of bullion from England to the Continent, may have had a shadow of influence on the operations of the day, but It was so very slight as to be worthy of no more than passing mention. With some the impression prevails that the market all Summer will run in this gold groove, and that the present movement is only the forerunuer of a speculation in specie ratner than in stocks. The steamers which left New York for Europe to-day took out |1?6,618 in specie, principally in silver bars. The following table will exhibit the fluctuations in the gold market during the dav:? 10 A.

The stock market to-day reached the acme of dulness. The Hoard was inactive, and a general indisposition was manifested by both bulls and bears to indulge in their wonted antagonism. The transactions were, consequently, few in number, and barely enough was done to establish quota tions. The bank statement evidently had little to do with prices, though slightly unfavorable, and there were no features in the fluctuations of the day really worthy of mention. Western Union opened at 86%, receded to 84%, rallied % and closed at 84%. Erie vibrated all day between 63 and 53%, the last sale be ing at 63%. Pacific Mail ruled between 46 and 45%. New York Central told down to 100%, its highest price during the day being % bet ter. Lake Shore was a trine off, showing the extremes of 90% and 90%. Union Pacific and C., C. and I. C. kept together, the difference betwean them being, aay % a % per cent. Investment shares were quiet and firm. Harlem sold at 130 Northwestern preferred at 85 a 85%, and all other stocks at correspondingly slight variations. Busi ness closed at the usual Saturday hour, and it is not improbable that the 1st of June will see the sensible change made which adjourns the Boani every day at three o'clock-two-thirds of the mem bers having signed the petition to that effect.

Completed?Bate of the Brftdhurit and Jones' Wood Re late*?The Westchester Annexation Bill Signed toy the Governor?The "Obatme tlvea" Opposed Thereto Under Anjr Con* tlderatlon?"Larchmont Manor**. erty and the Hammer Club House of the Brooklyn Yacht Club. A satisfactory week's business h*fl just closed* and with It, no doubt, the Spring sales. The SnB" mer solstice will now drive the heavy operatert Into the country to rusticate during the dog days, and for a short time real estate transactions will be but moderate. One wqek ago to-day we mentioned the sale Of the Bradhurst estate, which came off on the aoth Inst. Every prediction of ours In regard to prloas < and the general effect upon surrounding property was amply verified. The price obtained for Mio "estate" was $445,600. Each lot averaged throughout $2,300 and a fraction, and, considering the unfinished state of tho streets on which this land Is loeated, the rates ob? talned may be considered as first clnss. The next sale of Importance, ana, in fact. t.h? of the season, owing to the location, was that o portlou ?* ?ue JonoB--nooa estate, which waspm* Up?u the market under the trusteeship of Messrs. Henry Clausen, Jr., and Adolph Levlnger, by A. J. Bteeeker, Son & Co., on the 2'2d Inst. Every lot waa disposed of at very good prices. A portion or the success of this sale may oe ascribed to the signing of the bill, by the Governor, establishing the Eastern Boulevard, by which meas ure the east side residents will obtain a fine drivo from Seventy-second street to the llarlem Klver. Public anu private sales for the past week win foot up close on $1,000,000, which at this season ot the year may be considered a Hue week's business, WE3TCHKHTKR ANNEXATION. The passage of the act annexing the towas ot Morrlsuuia, Klngsbrldge and West Farms to the city of New York, which was llnally accomplished by the closing ceremony of Oovernor Dlx's signa ture to the bill on Priday last, meets with general public approbation, and is endorsed by the Innuen mu l press with a unanimity that is rare in a njat terof so much magnitude and importance, rhe clause submitting the matter to the people, whlcB requires the question to bo passed on by a vote of the counties of New York and Westchester at tho general election in November next, did not seem to conciliate the "obstructives" aud "lmplacables" iu anv perceptible degree, as th^ amended i bill, on its third reading In the Ben* i ate, received In opposition exactly the ion? votes that were cast against the original bill IB that body when the howl was at its loudest for the popular suffrage amendment, which now proves so unsatisfactory to anti-annexation stomachs. The public will not, therefore, be slow to appreciate these hostile manifestations at their true worth. Nothing now remains to be done is this connection except to wait until Fall, when the measure win become a law In clue course of time. in speaking of Westchester It will not be amiss to mention that the Brooklyn ifacht Club, possessing a souadron of upwards of lorty vessels, is nego tiating lor property at Larchmont, tne most beau* tllul location on tho Long lslaud Sound, for tho erection of a club house aud a Summer rendezvous. Larchmont, as It Is called now, Is well and favor ably known to all residents of Westchester as the manor of E. K. Collins, the spirited proprietor of the lamented American ocean line of European steamers. This great estate has been purchased by a company or well known capitalists, whoso President w Mr. Silas C. Herring. A uurnber of ele gant cottages are already erected on these prem ises, which skirt the Long Island Sound, and ? horse railroad of about a mile's length Is run front the depot, at which numerous trains of tho New York and New Haven Railroad stop both ways lor the accommodation of th? residents of 'Larch "The enterprise displayed by the proprietors ot this modern paradise Is only an earnest of our spirited New Yorkers in checking the exo du<? to New Jersey. While the Hudson River, from Manhattanvllle to Peeksklll, is dotted with the most costly and luxurious Summer (and even Winter) residences, the grand scenery of the Hound has been looked over on the Westchester side, and very few really ex tensive cottages grace this water frontage. The exception to this rule is New Rochelle, Mamaro neck and Rye. Larchmont, however, and the pro jected improvements in lands and building of fine edifices, will intase a new spirit into the owner's of realty, on Long Island Sound, and teach them that It Is by no means necessary for our citizens to travel to Long Branch, Newport, Narragansett Pier or other fashionable or unfashionable watering places, when within one hour's ride they can ob tain as flue sea oroe/.e and as healthy a locatlonas Larchmont and adjoining water fronts afford. The New Haven Railroad Company have decreased the commutation on their road from $90 per annum to $75 from this city to Matnaroneck, thus affording good and cheap lacllitles to Westchester residents.

It may have been that the roughs who committed ull these assaults were totally alien to the gas men, and If such were the case, It was unfortunate for the cause of the strikers. The effect was, however, none the less serious. The overworked men, who, for twelve hours out of every twenty-four stood before the flaming furnaces, began their strife with the sym pathy of tne entire community "They lost It by their unwarrantable efforts to prevent other inea from doing their work. TtlK CAHPHNTEKS MUST NOT BE RASH. The carpenters have begun a movement which Is well and proper enough in Itself, but they are In no small danger, if private information which has reached us Tie true, of committing a grave and feral error. When the laboring classes bind them selves together by an oath to obey the dictates of a leader there Is some Justification for the men re quiring all so obligated, without exception, to quit work. On the other hand, when a workman In engaged In supplying food for his femlly, when ho is not bound by oath to any man or set of men; when, properly speaking, he relieB onlv upon him self. It is no man's right on the face or the earth to dictate to him how many or how few hours he shall labor. If he chooses to work twenty hours per day he has a legal right to do so. Any class of men who make an effort to control the actions of others should show some valid reasons for so doing. WHAT DOBS THIS MEAN? The carpenters have for some time been in a troubled condition over the Eight Hour law. A large part of the trade struck about one year ago auu obtained a decrease of hours. This movement was not engaged In by the entire body of workmen, and to-day the strange phenomenon is presented of one branch of the trade working eight and tha othefr ten hoars for" the same wages. The bosses, ?Ming that the men who labor longest appear to bo the best contented, have begun a flank movement on the eight hour men to bring them back to the old rules. The workmen, who have become used to short hours, late breakfasts and early dinners, very natur ally object. They have called a meeting. They have explained their trttuation to the world. They have commanded somewhat of the city's sympathy. It 1s to be hoped, therefore, that they will not carry out the resolutions which they have quietly formed, and which rhey hint at in the oard given below. Every worklngman knows what the phrsso means?"Yon are notified to quit won." Here are the sentiments ol the carpenters as they now stand R??>lred. That ail or any carpeatcr* or Joiner* now wurkliiK nine or ton hours within the city limit* be and are hereby notiUed cither to quit, or work but eight hour* per day, on and after Monday, May ?. Workmen belonging to the branch of the trade performing ten hours' labor deoiare that they fear trouble during this week. They say that forcible opposition will be made to their working mora than eight hours. This will not be tolerated, au^ U attempted, serious trouble is inevitable.
