At St. Peter's church, in Barclay street, there was solemn high mass yesterday morning. The music was unuor me uirecuon 01 rroiessor I'ecner ana ; consisted of Haydn's Muss No. 10 in B flat, an offertory by Pacini, and the "Veni Sancto Spiritus" by Nuinmel. The solo parts were taken by Mrs. East on, soprano; Miss Tobin, alto: Mr. Savage and Mr. Fritsch, tenors, and Mr. Stand, bass. The music | was exceedingly beautiful, and lollowed by a sermon by the Rev. M. J. O'l-'arrell on "Liberty and [ the Catholic Church." No one had a greater right f to speak of liberty than the Catholic priest, he said, but particularly the Iriah priest. He then explained that liberty was not license, and argued that the Catholic Cburch, instead of being opposed to liberty, was in complete harmony with all the great principles ol freedom and human right. CHTTBCH OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION. Kev. Dr. Marrough's pretty little church (Roman Catholic) on Fourteenth street was crowded to excess yesterday. The Catholic Union held a celebration of the great national festival with a high mass and sermon. Mandanlci's mass in U major wufl anno hv u mucrniflp^n:. p.hnlr iimlur Him i tton of Professor Gustavus Schmltz. The soloists were Mile. Henrietta Corradi, Mine. Unner, Mme. Morrlson-Fiser, Herren Graf, Sohst and Urchs. The Catholic Choral Cnlon, who supplied the materials lor ttie chorus, covered themselves with glory, and rarely has a mass been sung with such eclat in this city. To Professor Schmltz much of this success is due, as he brought everything in the musical line through triumphantly. The mass Itself is not interest- ' ing in a musical point of view, being patchy and commonplace. Mile. Corradi sang with effect the beautllul aria of Lalorce, entitled "The Vision of Ht. Cecilia." and the sympathetic voice ot ' Mme. linger was heard to advantage m the "Aguus Dei" of the mass. Mme. Morrison-Flset sang in charming style an "O Salutarls," 'founded ou an airia from "Attlla." Mr. Hohst proved liimseli one of the best oi church baritones by his artistic rendering of a "Veni Creator," adapted from one of W. V. Wallace's operatic airs. Nearly three thousand people sat in tho church for more than throe hours, listening to the delicious music afforded them hy Mr. Schmltz. outside the sfect l was redolent of firecrackers and torpedoes, and inside the church was tilled witli eloquence, music and piety. Rev. I'. J. McGnlre was the celebrant of the mass, Rev. P. Maloue deacon and Rev. John J. Corr subdeacon. There were present in the sanctuary Kev. Arthur J. Donnelly, of St. Michael's; Kev. Gabriel Healy, and Rev. Dr. William P. Morruugh, pastor of the church. TIIE SKRMON. After the g09pel was chaunted by the deacon of the maxs, the Kev. br. J. L. Spaulding?nephew of the late Catholic prima en of the United Slates? ascended the platform of the altar, and proceeded to deliver a discourse on "Tiie Providential Mission c?i the Cnurch in the Lulled States." He baaed the arguments o! his discourse on the text., "There is no other name given to man whereby he may be ' saved but Cliust Jesus our Lord." It would not be doing Justice to the eloquent Doctor to Rive a synops.s of his lecture without remarking, llrst, that U was worthy in delivery, eloquence and style of the name he bears and the occasion which was celebrated. The Church was the Church of Christ, he said, with its appointed agents, who received authority to speak, teach and organize. In speaking oi the providential mission oi the Church in this country tie did not intend to touch the subject exclusively. The reverend Doctor, thereiore, went back fo its earlier periods?to the days of its infancy?when its onward and upward struggles alarmed the champions of paganism, retarded that of barbarism,sowed the seeds of Christian civilization by which the haman race was to be regenerated, oievat d the personal dignity of man, ennobled woman by showing her a place in society to which she siiould always be entitled, ireed the slave and placed the rule of laith before kmsfs and peasants. I?r. spanlding then went on to enumerate all the instances of unswerving fidelity with which the Church always maintained her right of dictating in the spiritual world, and sought to prove that all the good aud noble qualities Christian men now possess were mainly owing to her leaching, lie th''n traced her rise, progress aud elevation to tiie present standard by which Catholicity Is to be measured here and everywhere else. The his? lory of Catholicity in thiH couutry, he said, dated back to a period when Protestanlsm <!ld not exist?to the days 01 Columbus and ins more successful followers. There was not a portion of the land tliat did not owe a tribute of respect to Catholic teaching ami Catholic cessionaries. In 1776 there were not more than 36,000 catholics in the States?to-day there were nearly 1.1,000,000. Then there were lew priests, no bishops, temporary churches?lo-dRy the American people can read and see lor themselves the extraordinary progress or i;ainoiiciiy iwi annum auu si.iui.itics. Hishop England once said that, when he came to America In 1*20, it was impossible to conceive the disgrace which was attached to the name of "Catholic/' Times are since altered. Then everything was against Catholicity, w Including public opinion Itself. Now Catholicity k has made an Impression on the public mind by its steady, unostentatious working, and while Proies^ tanism seems to he fading from the land It seems to be the only successful creed which is able to and must prevail. Tile lecturer then told the miaaiou of the church, .she had ecu sufficient powers to perform the mission she was destined for. tier mission in these Mates, where the broad domain of liberty receives every denomination kindly and equa lyr is to educate meu as lutel:ectual beings rattier than as beinus 01 animal leellnys and instinct*. "God knows," said the lecturer, "how wu love this KepuDlic. and how tu.holies would labor and have labored and died to make her happy and prosperous. Bui us no rcpubl.c can stand unless it be founued on public virtue, essentially based on religion, this Kepublic must be based on sume such foundation in order to oontinue. Catholicity alone can be its great preserver. ToHiiv It. i>ttlukratnti i#u mauuou f7\w> i?a !? <*?? ? "?J " ?v.v..i..vu V" .u? t D IUI Itn HIMIJ BUU yiV?" perity, and prayed fervently for both. The Kev. l)r spaulding brought tils discourse to a close by a beautiiul apostrophe to the Church and a strik.ne and admirable simile, showing tho cure and fondness with which she watched over the destinies ol this country and the I.opes she euentertalned and cherished ol Having h?r from anarchy or decay, which have wrought the stump 1 of ruin ou so many ancient nation* and republics. THE 69TH'3 TIPPERARY FLAG. What a strange connection It la apparently to name the honest boys of Tipperary aud our great uational holiday, the Fourth of July! There la something in it, though In the workings of most human hearts It Is given to but few to scrutinize it too keeuly, for the subject requires braius ol not the ordinary order. It may bo some consolation, and very probably It will be a matter of pride to the men of Tipperary, when they read the Hbuald, to know that the presentation ol their nag to tho gallant Sixty-ninth was Just us Irish a demonstration as ever Tipperary could display, among her glorious valleys, with the great hlUa around, fitting emblems of her stalwart sons. There were plenty of honest Jrisnmen yesterday at liellevue hardens, East Eightieth street, celebrating the glorious 1'ourth by mingled recollections of Ireland aud America? the exiled gallant sous ol the Kmeraid lsie and the home that received them alter every lallure tor an existence as a nation. It was very late In the afternoon when the Sixtyninth put In an appearance, but when they did the music of their baud was very acceptable. They played that most charming air. "The KlUarney Lakes," and, as they marched along, every man seeinod neatly fixed up, and the sweet plamtiveness of the music touched many hearts. Soon after this General McUellan, accompanied by the gentiemen named above, ascended a platform which was erected ou the nortuern portion of the grounds, and presented the Tipperary flag, the acceptation of which waB acknowledged by (tolnnel (Juvaniurh. If. Is needless to hav hnw w?ll General McOlellan did the work assigned to him, and how veil Colonel Cavanagh responded. Both speakers made their remarks most brier, and each received a perlect ovation. The participants in the affair remained enjoying themselves in the garden unta a late hour in the evening. THE PYROTECHNIC DISPLAYS. The display or fireworks under the auspices of tho Department oi Parks was very fine and attracted immense concourses oi spectators In the various squares and parks. The chief displays were at the City Hail and In Union Square Muster Ground, and the pyrotechnical exhibition consisted or myriads or aerial pieces and something like oue hundred fixed designs. Some or the flying pieces, as rockets, bombs and Roman candles, were very detective, while othors were or compensating extraordinary beauty and power. In the City Hall Park tne throng was very dense and the scenes were alternately grotesque, beautiful and ridiculous. The display commenced about eight o'clock with a discharge of rockets and bombs, and then a axed piece was ignited, a band or music meantime discoursing patriotic airs. The design or this ornamental blaze was a highly colored sun, changing to Saturn and his satellite", composed or richly colored Saxon and Chinese gerbs. Alter blazing away for some five minutes tne design went out in a roaring explosion like the firing 01 a line ot pickets, in the crowd there were people oi almost all nationalities, and within a mdhiA of ton fop.t tram thn r?nfirt.?r ?t. nnc t.imn there were Chinese, Spaniards, French, German*, Irish, English aud Norwegians, all engaged in conversation or babbling out ejaculations of admiration in their respective languages. At Union square the crowd 01 spectators was very dense, and tilled almost the whole plaza. The display of pyrotechnics was extremely tine here, auu tne assemblage 01 spectators was of a much better class, socially and in point of outward appearance, than those ut the City Hail Park. A lino display was made at Mount Morris square, which attracted about half of the semi-rural residents of llarlem to witness it. .Similar patriotic exhibitions took place at the Ratt.ery, Grand street, and East Broadway, Fort Washington, Clareinont, central Park Entrance Circle (west siue), Jackson square, Canal Htreet l'ark, Cooper Inton Park, Madison square and Washington Park. The music at the various places was turnlshed by Harvey B. Dodsworth. leader of the Central Parte Band, and at alL the larger squares the cloning pieces of fireworks consisted of large allegorical patriotic devices. CASUALTIES.

The day was ushered in by the ringing of bells, firing or salutos on Fort Greene, in the Eastern district, and on .Sixth avenue. Then the enthusiasm ot the juvenile portion of the community was thoroughly aroused, and all tho various contrivances for making a noise were set in operation. The greater the noise the moro enjoyment Becmed to be derived irom it, and it would be Impossible to convey au acurate idea Of tho confusion which prevailed tn all sections of the city throughout the entire day. The quantity of fireworks set oil' in Brooklyn during the day and evening was probably double that or uny previous Fourth. It is some years since there has been any parade by the military in Brooklyn, and therefore the at>j nence of the soldiery lrom the streets yesterday was not missed. Otherwise nothinsr aDueared to be omitted which was at all calculated to murk tlie day as that or the anniversary of our national Independence. There was a very general display or flags and bunting trotu the various public and private.dweilings about the city and upon the vessels along the wharves, while the boats upon the different lorries were almost covered with llags of aii sizes. The various private club houses aoout the city were lutuelully decorated outside, while the members inside had a glorious time. In accordance with tne orders issued by Chief Campbell, tlie entire police force of the Department were on duty throughout the entire day, and very uaiurally wished they were in some other calling Mian that of preserving the peace while everybody around them was enjoying himself. They rendered good service at the various tires, in the frequent street brawls and by,aiding those who were wounded by the careless use ot firearms to reach the hospitals. Accidents iind Incidents.

There wero a nurat>er of private displays about the city which even surpassed those which were given by the city. THE DAY IN WILLIAMSBUSG. Williamsburg presented the appearance of a New Kugland Sabbath yesterday. The streets were deserted, soveral of the liquor stores were closed, and, but for the occasional explosion of a bunch of llrecrarkers, a stranger might suppose that the Burghers lacked patriotism. But the quietude was not the result of alack Of patriotism. The great bnlk of the active population departed eurlv for tho suburban parks to enjoy a day of quiet. and returned iu the evening somewhat sunburned, but more or less refreshed. The societies connected with the Church of St. Vincent de rani spent the day In Myrtlo Avenue Park, where an Immense multitude of citizens assemb'ed and participated in their festivities. No disorder what >ver occurred during the day. The societies connected with St. Mary's church of the Immaculate Conception assembled In Uoulevard <;ro\c, and parsed the day rational!/ and ' pleasantly. lu comparison with former years, the accidents wore few.

In Hobokvn, The day was ushered In l>y the congregations or youths, who were on the streets belore three o'clock. At a more advanced hour four companies of the Stato militia paraded the principal thoroughfares and were roviowed by the Mayor and Council at the City llail. Picnics, excursions, brass bands, firecrackers and lager beer wero the order of the day. The members of the Caledonian Club of Hudson county, proceeded in a body to the Schutzen I'ar* at Union lull, where they enjoyed the national games. Dospite the obstinate heat of the day the sturdy children 01 the laud of Hruce and Hums enjoyed themselves us .Scotchmen know how lo do. Their perlormances In the manly contests were loudly applauded, aud the managers of tho park spaieil no trouble lu making the surroundings as agreeable as possible. In the evening a large assemblage of persons entered the square at Garden street to witness the display of fireworks, which was as brilliant as the appropriated sum of $7& would admit ot. There were very few accidents ami lew disorderly characters. One boy had his haud blown ofl, uml during the military parade Major llart was thrown irom his horte, but his friends will be glad to learu that he was not seriously hurt. In Paterson. Tho Intensity of the heat In Paterson yesterday was tempered with a delightful breeze, but the latter sent flying through the air great clouds of dust from the powdery streets, upon which there has not fallen a shower in two months. Still the day seemed to bo enjoyed by everbouy, especially the children, who seemed to have taken to the streets and public places. There was a general cessation of business, but no public observances by the authorities, except a very meagre salute fired by the Paterson Cannon Club, for which the Common Council had contributed $50! Tho German societies paraded in wie morning, anu spent ino remainder oi uie day at a picnic, wUicti was held at liuuker Ilill, under the auspices of the Ariou Singing Society. A parade was also made by the Insu societies, whlcb terminated in a picnic on Temperance Island, under the auspices or tin* St. John's t. a. i!. (society. Mingling witii these parades was the street, procession of a menagerie aud circus, which performed yesterday In I 1'uterson. Great numbers ol people lelt the city | by both the Krie and Midland railways, which sold excursion tickets good till Monday. Bj no means a Jew went io New York to witness tbe pjro technical exhibitions announced 111 yesterday morning's BlIALD. Tbe usual clang Of church bells and small arms continued all day. There was no public pyrotecimical display, hut there were quite ereditaole private exhibitions at the residences of soiuo of the more Wealth/ inhabitants. The day was uot unaccompanied by a number or tbe ordinary casualties, but they were much lewer than usual and none of them very serious. A tireworks stand took lire about liii o'clock 011 Thursday night in Market street. Tbe lagots new about, creating almost a panic for a wlule. A man was entering a Broad way horse car with a largo bundle of fireworks, which are supposed ' to have been touched by somebody's cigar. At any rate, the man was barely inside when the whole bundle went oil' iu every direction. Tbe car was crowded at the rime, but they got out with wonderful rapidity, and a general skedaddle Irom the vicinity took place, it seems almost miraculous thai no one was hurt seriously. Several accidents resulted from tbe careless use oi Urealms. liarrimr the iieat. and the lack, or anv i regular observance, everybody seemed lo enjoy U1111.seIf, aud the day passed oil quietly. THE DAY IN WESTCHESTEB. "Independence Day" was duly honored throughout Westchester couniy, where the celebration was enthusiastically carried out, not only by the local authorities and resident?, but also by thousands of New Yorkers, who wisely exchanged the heat and noise of the city (or the umbrageous# groves of that attractive suburb. Prom every public institution and more pretentions mansion the Stars and ^tripes waved a welcome t* the last but three iecurriug anniversaries ere this giant Republic will have reached the lCOth year of its benelleont existence. Altnougn a vast amount of "villauous saltpetre" was burnea by "Young America" throughout the day, no casualties oi a serious nature were reported up to a late hour last evening.

The motley inmates ol the Comity Jail were also remembered hospitably by MhcritT Hi undage. THE FOURTH ON STATEN ISLAND. Within the memory of the oldest Inhabitant of Richmond county Independence Day was never celebrated with more Cclat than yesterday. At sunrise the gunners at Fort Wadsworth?at the Narrows?fired the usual salute, as did also the forts on the Long Island shore. Services were held in the different churches, both morning and even- 1 Ing, which were well attended, and in the evening speeches and fireworks prevailed In honor ef the 1 nation's natal day. At Elm Park Colonel Frank McKlroy addressed an < Immense audience, and at Stanleton Part Hupervl* [ sor Iirlck, Alderman uenjamin brown, < apialn John : li. Vaughan. Judge KHpatrick and Ju<ltc<* Carrett addressed the meeting. At the New Dorp Club grounds several races occurred. The McKlroy Guards, of the North Store, paraded ] quite creditably, and the Norman Guards enjoyed , themselves hugely at Silver Lake. strange to say not an accident occurred during the day. The Messenger beys of the city, to the number of 150, went to Clifton Park, where t>all playing and other games were indulged in. PIETY AND BILLIABD8-RELIGION AND SUNDAY CONCERTS. Father Mooney is the plucky little Catholic parson who blessed the cannon at Hull Run lor the gallant Sixty-ninth, anU thus made himself forever famous. Lately he did another creditable thing in donating a building site for a new Roman Catholic church at the corner of lOGtli street and Second avenue. Everything Father Mooney naa anything to do with becomes remarkable. This new church lias already become remarkable In consequence of the unusual means resorted to to raise bnlldlng funds, on Sunday evenings promenade concerts are given by the congregation, who attend in great crowds, much to the horror of the straight-laced people of other persuasions, who look upon these innovations in tne religious lino as nut quite thu thiug. Hut Father Flattery, the pastor, pays no heed to these wild objectlous so lung as his own eongrega- : tlons are satisfied. Kext Sunday evening there will be another promenade concert at the corner of lootii street and Second avenue, atid on the night following there will be a grand billiard tournament for the benefit or the church. <iarnier, Daly, the two Dions, Ubassy, Deerv, Kavanagli and oth?r celebrities of i he cue win participate, and a crowded house is looked tor. It is cxpected that this will be followed on some future occasion by a grand clrcas performance. And why not? FATAL RAILROAD CA8UALTY. Mr. Charles N.

Bergen Point, which has so often been the scene of aquatic sport, fully maintained its reputation yesterday. The Kill Von Kull is the home of the Argonauta Kowing Association, which, il not among the oldest, is one of the most distinguished of the amateur boat clubs of America. Their club house is not only one ol the handsomest aud most complete In its adaptation to aquatic purposes, but it probably contains more handsome craft of every description known in rowing circles than can be found elsewhere in the United States. The festivities which took place yesterday were under the management of the Argouautus, aud attracted many hundreds of ladies aud gentlemen, not oniy iroiu the city, but from the neighboring precincts of New Jersey and staten Island. The long, cool porticos of the I.a Tourette House were thronged with spectators, who were there enabled to command a full view ot every portion ui the races; and the strains of musio from the orchestra oi me ciuo serveu noi ? little to enliven the occasion. Steamers laden, with living irelght, seeking a change lrom th- hot, dusty air of the city, Mltted to and fro; tugs, chartered by private parties; yachts, beautlful 111 proportion and decoration; sailboats and visiting clubs, each added its quota to the life of the hour, and in a unlet, sensible and memorable way to all concerned the day lapseu. The reeatta commenced at three o'clock and consisted of a louroared race, a six-oared shell race, a palr-oared race, a single-scull race and a tub race. The prizes Riven by the Argonautas were a gold badge to each of the winners of the four and six-oared races, and a silver goblet to the winners of tUo palr-oared race. The single-scull race was a challenge. The time made in the four-oared (two miles) was 11m. 55*.; in the slx-oared, same distance, l:;m. 33>*i. The tub race naturally afforded the most amusement? the contestants being prepared for a ducking and a swim. They had both, to the lutluito batisiactiou ot Uia assembled crowd.
