"Tlw Pope May Send the Hat, but He Will Not Find a Head to fnt It On." HIS HOLINESS AND THE HERALD. He Sends a Special Copy of His Al locution to Our Correspondent and Marvels at Amer ican Enterprise. The "Voce Delia Verita" on the American Cardinal. Is Archbishop Bay ley to Get a Red Hat? SIGNIFICANT HINTS FROM ROME. The Official Announcement to Cardinal MeCloskey. Rome, March 15, 1873. The preconizatlon of tne six new cardinals whicti touk place at the consistory held at the Vatican this morning is an important event In the history or the lile ot Pope Pius 15. Xot be cause there is anvthing strange in a Pope select lag prominent ecclesiastics on whom to coaler tfee highest dignity of the Church, but by reason ol the men selected lor the honor. Of the s x new cardinals lour are foreigners; one an Amer ican. who is the flrst cardinal ever create! across the Atlantic; the second an Englishman who re nounced Protestantism many year-" ago and who Has In the last decade done more lor the spr end ingor Catholicism in Great Britain than was done la the Are decades before his advent: the ttil rd a Oerman bishop, who is now in prison, suffering the penalties threatened by trie Prussian ecclesi astical laws. These are the three interesting Macs or the recent election, and tne '.est case is considered in Rome to be the most remarkable Ml account of the circumstances connected with It. That Archhiahup Ledochowsky anew o! the bonor done him beiore tne official publication to day is a fact in which the Vatican rejoices. Over ft week ago the Archbishop of Gnesen and Posen received in hla prison, in a secret manner, the Ifficlal notification ol his election to the dignity ?f cardinal though tt is not known in what way the berretta. or cap, which is sent In place ol the cardinal's hat?toe latter being sent onlr to car dinals ot princely blood?is to be lorwarded to dim in bis prison at Ostrowa. CASDl.NALs IS PRISON. Tbla It, I believe, the third cise la tbe history ot the Roman cbuxcn wbsre an imprisoned prelate baa beta mad* cardinal. A noteworthy case was teat of Jonn Flaber, wao, In 1443. was imprisoned la tbe Tover of London br Henry Till. Pope Paul III. created bim cardinal, whereat Henry VUL waft exceed;cgif enraged, sw^re tbat it Wat a great Insult to blm, and aaid, "Tbe Pupe May Mud tne bat. but be will out And a bead to put It oo." And poor Jonn Fisher was decapi tated. l'neu there we* another case in tne Orat decade 01 >be eigr.teeuth century.

The elevation or Arcnonnop Manning to tbe lUralty o cardinal may be coasriered aa crowning tbe many recent triumphs the Catnollc Churcn aaa celebrated in England. Tbe advent or Or. Mauaing n tbe catholic Church of England marks the commencement or an epoch In the binory of Catholicism in Eugiand. The blgletto was handed to the Arciiblsnop this morning at tbe Engiiah College. The ceremony waa very ?impie. Aa eoou aa tu? preconuatlon of tbe cardinal* bad oeen declared by the Pope in the caaatatory a noole guard aaa despatched to tirn, ?a to tbe two otbers in Rome, witti tne official no tification of his'elevation to tbe Sacied College. A number of prominent ecclesiastic* ot Home were lavited to ? ha English Coiiegi? in tbe fodow lag words:?"Tne pleasure ot your company is re queered at toe English College, Marco 15, at ?levea A. M., to assist at tbe delivery or the t)iql0Uo to His oruco sue Archbishop of Wesimiu ator." A ecu BI-SHOP HVLOSCKT.

"Perhaps It will no i be tbe laet; par Hap* yon n?v aoou nave to roaord a aeoond American cardinal." Thia wtu ooabtieea oe Arcnoubop bayiep. of Bai timore, whose *ervi<>* to the cau*e of the C?ibo!4? Church lu America are deeply ui predated In ihe VitLUD. It will certainly lie gratifying lor tite ir;<?uds oi Archbishop Hughes to krow that the I'ope had intended, bad Uiat j relate lived louger, to li?T? conferred the like dignity upon him. Imint I am certain in satlug 'nat fHis time the name c: the Archbixuup of llaltimore was taken seriously Into consideration. uud though bis uutne U uot amuaj those reserved in i etto suil Uis Holiness the i'ope baa not forgot ten inux. THE EFKECT IN ROME. All the prominent ufeuibers of tne Catholic world bere with whom I have spoken agiee in repeating to me the word* pronounced a lew days ago by ills Holiness the Pope, that "he intended, in con temn# the dignity upon Archbishop McCloskey, not only to give thU prelate a token ol Ins appre ciation and benevolence, but at the same time to give a token ol aympatliy and beuevolcuce to the Catholics ol America." cardinal Antonelll, in a very briel conversation wlih a distin guished |.relate, likewise gave the assur ance that tne toner feellnsr bad inspired His Holiness in honorlug America with a cardinal. Dr. cnatard. the excellent President of the Ameri can College. who has had frequent opportunities ol nesting the Pope speak ou the subject, cor roborates the above in almost the very words. A. lew days .-go Hi' Holiness called him to the Vatican lor tje expre*s purpose of discussing with hiui the best routes tor the messengers with the official notification and the t>erretta to take, and on that occasion spolce in ter us of the warmest appreciation of the pi ogress of Catholicism in America. 1 cannot better give you the clerical opinion In Rome on the subJ.'Ctot the new American Car dinal than by quoting in rull the veiy interesting article published in?yesterda>'s Vo'eMUt Verlta. the official organ of the Vatican. Tne article was written by Mgr. Nardi, domestic prelate of His Holiness the Pope. THE NEW AMERICAN CARDINAL. [Mgr. Nardi's article in the Voce deila Verlta.] Among the prelates abont to be promoted to the purple, Pius IX. has given a new examplo In se lecting for that honor an American prelate. We need not say here anything ill praise of Mgr. McCloskey. There is no American Catholic who does not know him. After performing with wisdom and meekness his outlea over the diocese of Al bany he was transferred to New York, flr.n as auxiliary and then as successor to the illustrious Archbishop Hughes, vAio left behind him a great and beautiful memory. In the ten years which Archbishop McCloskey has governed thi9 diocese ? the most important In :he United states?he has invigorated and strengthened Catholic Institu tions, has almost completed a magnificent cathedral, which will be the most beautiiui in America, aud has won for himself the esteem and the love of alL It li Just, there ore, that such an honor should oe bestowed upon him. But not 01 Iv Archbishop McCloskey is It that the Holy Father thus seeks to Jionor. In the elevation to the greatest dignity oi the Church he intends, certainly, first and foremost, to rewar i him; but none the less likewise to zionor the great, gener ous and taltnful Catholics of America. in truth, looking at the immense country which extends iron Sew York to San Francisco, and from the lakes to the Gull of Mexico, everywhere we see the strength of our lalth. At the begin ning of the pre-enc century only three or our bishops governed the entire body ol 200.000 laith lul; lov n.ty-niuc bishops and six apostolic vicars have charge of nearly 7,000,0 0 Catholics. There does not pass a smgfe year of this rcmaika* bie pontificate in which not les>s than three . r lour new dioceses are aduej, and still tne faithful lament the scarcity oi their pastors. And, without Instituting comparisons, what olshopa! wtiat priests! anu, 1 win add. what lay men ! The priest, and still morft the bishop, is there the fattier of the larniiy. ttie mend of ail, and, especially, or the po -r; indeiatigab'.e in labor ing for the good of the Church, of the family, of the school, oi the hospital, 01 the prison?ana for all. Trie bishops live surrounue i by iheir pries.s and precede them in good examp'e. The priests assist each other, sometimes travelling enormous distance-* and bearing lncreil.b e iatlirue. cour age is the very hat thing warning In the bishops and w^thepriesta 01 America. Very often, when they establish their pious institutions?churches, convents and scnooH?they commence *lth scarcely a dollar, anJ vet the structure rise.*, grows, is finished, and is even enlarged. "1 have founded Ihia jear," so Bishop Dwenger, of Fort Wayne, writes to we, "two churches and an orphan asTlum. I am 132,003 in debt, but all wtll be paid off before tue close of the year." But what iaj t#en arc ti*re! one would think that they have no other love but for tneir Church. Merchants, artists, gentlemen, magistrates, peas ants, workmen, whether natives of Ireland, oi Germany, of England, or natural born citizens? ail s ragg.e t < promoto the interest oi their churches, their schools, tneir bospitu.a, and esi? cially that tn?ir clergy should l-ck for notning.

The love of the goad that atlil exi-is wUl not oe sufficient to ?ave her if the irreligiousness, the impietv and tho wild neglect increases. Sot tvea tne tears of Cnriet were sufficient to aavj His holy city from destruction. Tue example of ihea catao.ica o. America should make other Catbo ice who live nearer the ilo'.y -see meditate on tne course thoy are pursuing towari the tu irch. The proceedings oi to- lay went off la the quick est manner poss.oie. Ine ancient cer:mon>es were all dispensed with.

The official announcement oi hia elevation to a place lu tne College of cardinals waa made to Cardinal llcciosaey yesterday at tit* reaideuoe, at the corner of Midiaon avenue and rnir-y->lztn atreet. Uv a form oi Idea, produced by the uaage of the Chore adopted long beiore the telegraph was conceived or even electricity waa known, be wai omciaily auppoaed. to b? ignorant of the fact until the meaeenger arrived. Tboae periona who rcid tbe caoie telegram aeut by Cardinal AntoneiU annouucinjr tbe pre conlMtlou of Arcbbiahop McCloakey aa a cardinal may be diapoaed to comDat tnn statement: yet tue truth is that altnoign tnat telegram bore the aiguature ol the P.ipai secretary of atate, it waa not "offlc al" hi the a?i ae that tne announce ments made yeaterua? are. It was simply a pre* hmlnary notice, meact a* a gmrd againat that surprite wnien would be caused in tbe mind of the venerable tieu 1 of ibis dtocvsn and his flock if tne envoys of His Uolmeaa anoaid arrlvs on neralded. thr ernciAt ajiKOi'jicgJiB.vT, tbereiore, was made to Cardinal McCloakey yea terday, and noma of tho insunia oi ins new rang were then presented to him. The only other article needed to make up his mil dress aa a cardinal?aamo.y, tne oappMtb? lilt tfmiaenoe must receive from t'ie hinds of tb? Pope blms#r. i Tne oowhUo ia tbe flat-topped, wide-brimmed bat, ironi which depend two large tassel*, and whlen la worn by a cardinal on the grandest occasions. I lie scene at the presentation of documents was not imposing. but It was "iT^'lve in stirring up the sympathies of all who witnessed It. For tne general public it has si certain arong interest because It is not precedented. Kor the Catholic* lta details must. be attractive, as tne majority of tneiu in thia country know nothing about the pre rogatives of a cardinal and nutnltig aoout the way in whlcli such a dignitary is made. Tne ceremomei look place in tne parlors of the Cardinal's residence. Time was no display in the dresses ol the clergymen nor in tuat 01 the Caralnai hlmseir. Vet the lorm which so permeates the Catholic Church, and wnlch Is, in deed, a sentiment m tiiut holy establishment could not be entirely banished. The parlors were closed as to the windows, through which ouly leeble rays of light struggled and were tinted by the crimson hangings tiirougn which they passed. The few persons present were not there by formal invitation, as no cards wore issued lor the event. They were simply clergymen and lay gentlemen who 11 id called at the Cardinal's residence during tne mornlncr, and were iniormed that the ceremonies were to take place. They as sembled in the parlors at one o'clock. The apart ments had been cleared of the simple lurniture with which it is ordinarily Ailed, and thus space was procured lor th> accommodation of THK ALTO Its IN TUK SCKNK. Soon after the spectators were assembled the Cardinal Archbishop appeared in the doorway, sainted them and was respectfully greeted, llo wore simply a purple soutane, his amice or gold and the large uependeut cruoidx. His head was covered with a purple berreita. He crossed the salon lengthwise aud took a plaee at the cen tre of its east side?tne head of the room. Tne clergymen took up positions at either slue of Hia Eminence, in the arc or a circle, and the lay gentlemen ranged themselves along the sides of the apartment. Soon after the Cardinal Arch bishop had taken his place, Father Farley, his Secretary, anuounced the approach of Count Marefoscnt, ol the Guardla ' mobile. This officer entered with a rapid, soldierly step. Ho was attired In the unl lorm of his Guard, and being wonderlully erect, made a most a ddler-like appearance. ills dress was of blue, heavily embroidered with gold. At his side ne wore a dress aword and upon hla head a very handsome helmet, whose crest is gilt and terminates with a lion's head. His hands and wrists were encased in gauntlets. As ho entered be did not uncover, but made a military salute to the Cardinal. He then advanced rapidly to the centre of the apartment, wiiere he saluted His Eminence again, und on going nearer to the venerable prelate he saluted mm a third time. Having been recognized, he began the speech to His Eminence explanatory of bis presence. The speech was in Latin and very felicl tous. He announced first that he was the bearer of tne official announcement to the Archbishop of hla elevation to the Cardinal ate, aud, having added some words or congratula tion to His Eminence, be handed that prelate a letter, of which no was the bearer, irom Cardinal Antotielll, and also the zucottto?a scarlet skull cap. The substance of hla remarks were ??I have the honor to be the bearer irom onr Holy Father 01 the first official announcement ta you (Cardinal McCloskey) ot yo'ir elevation to a place In the College of Cardinals or the Holv Roman Catholic Church, and It is my precious duty to preient to you a p.?rt of the insignia or your high place." He then expressed nis delight at the el"vation of His Eminence to the new dignity, and said aub atantlaliy, In cdnciaalon, that wui:e the Arch bishop ol Sew York was honored by the Holy Father the entire congregation of Catholics in America must be assmed that npon them la conferred ape ial evidences or ratberly approval by the head or that Church, to which they are to laitbiui. Count Mareioachl alterward banded to His Eminence the letter and insignia alluded to. Tne guooetto was enclosed in a red morocco case, and rested upoa a dome, shaped cushion of red velvet. Taking hia cap, which la sometimes called berrettmo, Cardinal McCloskey placed it carefully over the crown of hla head and then began bis reply to the speech of the noble envoy of the Pope. He also apoke in Latin, and used the words of that language fluently and with an elegance tuat la seldom discerned even in the works or tho best modern writers who have crystallized their thonghta in the tongue or oid Rome. The Cardi nal's remarks continued ror about a quarter of an Hour. In substance ha said "lamthankiul for the honor which tae noly Father has conferred upon me?the more ao that It is an honor to which 1 never aspired. I am grateful not only lor the great mark or kind* tie-a which the Holy Father has given me, bat also lor the honor which the act of in ?eating me with new dignity reflects upon the of Catholics ni America. In my own nam^, in that the Archbishop, Bishops aud cergy generally, and In that of the great Catholic population oi America, lam grate.ui to oar Holy Father; ard lor you. Count Mareloscil, 1 reel a deep love, as the bearer to me of tidings fraught wltn so much pleasure tor me and lor ail cat nolle*." Wiillo tnis speech was in coarse or delivery Coant Msrefoschl ?tooa in the military altitude or atteutlon. He kept his right hand upluted to his helmet until the remarks were ended, and then dropping It while concluding the balf-made salute, he turned aud walked nriskly to a place near the door. There he stood until the ceremonies were ended. As he took bis new place Father Farley announced the approach or Mgr. Hon cetti, the Papal Ablegate, and his Secre tary. Dr. t'ba.di. as these officials en tered the room both saluted, and tne lormer having removed the hat he had worn? round topped, with a purple tassel?passed it to the latter. Mgr. Roncettl wore a purple alik cassock. nelng a Monsignor of tne Pon tiflcal Household or the higher class he la entitled to wear tae episcopal color. The envoys walked with quiet steps across tne room until they stood before Cardinal McCloskey. Dr. Ubaldl ato >d at tii? rigot and a little to the rear o| toe Monsignor. The latter then addressed His Eminence in French. Tnere Is n& significance In these different cnolcea or language by tne Monsignor and by Count Mareioaohl. The former chose to speak in French because there were several lay gentlemeu present In the apartment who knew that language, and who could not understand awoken Latin. Mgr. Ronretti Is a most intellectual looking prelate, and the ease and elegance with which he auoke approved hla mental power and llngaal racillty. He said in substance:? "I have the especial privilege and honor to be the bearer to yon (Cardinal McCloskey), from our Holy Father, or one or the Insignia oryonr new rank in the Church, It U the scarlet berretta." Alter some more phrases, explanatory of his mission Mgr. Roncettl congratulated His Eminence upon hta new dignity, and, passiagon, said that a mark ot honor was intended to be conveyed to the cath olics or America through the venerable prelate or New York city. Dwelling upon this subject the Monsignor said "It It my prayer that this evidence of the afTec tion whicn the Ho:y Father bears to tae Catholics of America may lorge new bonds or affection b*> tween them and h:m." In concluding be asked that ths Cardinal would be pleased to appoint a day when the torrttta snail be lormaily conferred upon him. Caidinai McCloskey reptteu to ths speech or the Legate in an earnest voice, appearing to have had strong emotions aroused in his breast by the re marks to wnion lie had juat listened. Ue spots in French &nd as one wne had a thorough command or that lan guage. The sentiment o' his speech wns tne same as that wmcn governed his remarks to the Couut Mureicacht. U alludd to the prayer ol the Legate that new bonds <?r love may be wrought DStwcen the Pope and the Catholics of America, and assured ttis mousigoort tnat it will surety meet a pleading response. cardinal MeCloakey's snort speech in reply to the Papal Legate ended ti.e ceremonies oi an nouncement and presentation. Immeelately the somewhat loruiai omructor which the assoiuoiage had assumed >or a timo was broken and was Basifsd into on* or gsnial simpiiott/. l'nsn eaou of those present?bishop, prlaat and layman?cam* forward to tin; Cardinal and i'on.'-rratu aled mm uuou ni-< aocosslon to a new d sfnliy Jroia wnlch ll,,nor is reflected upon them as members of the Roman Catholic Church.
