Your 1-sue of April 2S Should possess in tbe eyes of Amcrica n citizen* a turr.incauce iar beyond that whicti n?fuch? h to a glowing, eloquent aud oxnaiisilve description of a novel ecclesiastical ceremony, tnonnit never so itaponiag. A marvel lous pen-picture It surely Is of au event markiug a new era in the ecclesiastical history of this conn try and of the i ntlie Continent. What did Cathoilci see In thH ceremony t Simply that a single century of liberty ha* solle vetopcJ the lloman Catholic body in tlil^ country that tbelr bishops am given seats m tne lapal tea ale, in the highest administrative council of tbat iHurc:i whlc.i has witnessed the birtn and groftib oi evury Uvii coustitu lou iu cuiiRicauom. H the highest office la tfee TTatt?<l Stat,mis ac cessible to the man of lowliest birth, provided he be a native of tills Republic, even 10 the child born to-day of the emigrants arrived among us but yes terday, go, notthur more nor less, Is the lo.'tleu eminence in the Catholic Cltu ch, even the Chair of Peter, made accessible to every Catholic priest, be he boru as lowly as Hndebrandt or Slxius V. To catholics there is no other signiacance in the ceremony of last Tuesday. That man wtio stood so meekly on the altar steps of Si. Patrick's Cathedral and seemed to bow nis bead to receive the highest honor of the Roman purple as if he were about to bo crowned with thorns, Is In very deed tne son of emigrant parents, born In lowly condition and risen step by step to his present eminence through the sheer Impelling force of his native goodness, winning love and a good name irom all within tils communion and without. it lias ever been the boast of American citizens that the social equality guaranteed by our tederal constitution makes every, native-born freeman clieible even to the Chief Magistracy of the Repub lic: it can, since last Tuesday.be the boast of every American C.itholie?why should I not say of every American oitlzen ??that the first dignity in the Christian Church, a place among the long line of Sovereign Pontiffs stretching 1800 years buck to St. Peter, is no* accessible to every boy born on American soil. Among the boya wha ministered on Tuesday I morning in the sanctnary of St. Patrick's, or the : throngs of their fellows who eagorly watched out side lor one glimpse of the Cardinal's robes or a I parsing smile irom hlsiatherly countenance, there whs not one, peroiiance, who did not feel, as lie looked upon tne pale teatures and shrinking form ol the Prince of tne Church, th u he might himself i be one day exalted to thai same proud statiou by learning, labor and spotless purity of life. Any one who ?ives other significance than this to the elevation of our Archbishop to the Cardl naline misunderstands the policy of Pius IX. and : the purposes of tlie Catholic Church, and mistakes the prejudices of ins creed or education lor the , doctrines and ulnis or his Roman Catholic fellow I j citizens. We may well rejoice, then, that the same equal ] Itv which throws open to true merit in every walk Of society the hf/hest honors and trusts 01 tne State now breaks down the barriers which have ; stood between American Catholics and the subilm- : est office 01 the Papacy. but there are pregnant lesaons to be learned irom this event which marks the first centenary of religious liberty noneatl the protection of our Republic. It was the successor ot John Carroll , and Leonard Neaie in the see or Baltimore whose ' I hand plac -d the burretta on the brow of tne flrst I I American Cardinal I In the beginning or 1775 John Carroll, alter the i suppression, by Clement XIV., of the religious so ciety to which lie Had vowel Ills Hie and given its j best years, hastened buck Irom Europe to aid witn ? nis lauillv lu tne couiiQg sr.ruirgle ior lndepend I ence. We rind his brother. Jharies Carroll, of I t.arrolitou, prominent lu that same year as a mem i oer of the first "committee of observation." es ! tiblished at Annapolis;"and In I77<ia sp?uial reso lution oi Congress oesires Charles Carroll "to prevail upon Mr. John Carroll to accompany the j committee to Canada lo ushisi tne in in such uiat ! ters as tliey shall think useful." This committee compused Charles Carr.di himself. Benjamin I rrankliu and Judge Samuel Cltass. Tlio z-al of ! the Carrolla and ol thu entire bo ly of Maryland i Cutuolics for the cause of inucpendetice, aud j the precious services rendered bv them, were well known to Washington ami to Congress. Tne | innueu 'o winch the amende.) constitution oi Mary laud (the work of Daniel CarroJij hud lu the I training of ths federal constitution is too neil i known to need snoclal mention here; but It will luterest tne reader to be told, In tins year of grace, i 1875, wuen goinetnwg like a cry of alaiui is raised : at this pliuniom ol a Papal aggression, that it was ! the instructions of Washington that Benjamin r'rmiklin. in 1780, while ambassador at Paris, oo < taiued from Rome the appoiutment of John Car- I r"*l jy Vicar General ol to* American Cnurch in the United states, and later as first Bisriop of 1 Baltimore. Thus we may reokou among the fouuaera of the Roman Catholic hierarchy iu this Republic the very founder* of that Republic itself ' just a* certainly us we must acknowledge among I tne fathers oi American independence not oniy Charles Carroll, ol Carroilton, out tne Jesuits Jonu Carroll and Leonard Nealc. Nor did Wash' ingtoii and Franklin, when Independence bad I been wou, tuink that the Romau Catholic faith should die out wiui their mends the Carroiis. I liiey, too. aided, by eveiy means ihey could em- 1 ploy, tlie establishment of the flr?tCatholic college in tne very heart and csntre or tie I'm n?at | Georgetown. Over tue prog ess of that buiidiug ?> ashiugtou watcaed witu as inech care almost as Joan Carroil lumseif. And toe visitor is still i spown tne tree In the college courtyard to whlcu i the -Father ot his Country" tteo his horse when he duly rode out to visit bis iriend and walk , rouna with him to mspect tne progress of tue j new edifice. i hat the love of the Carroila for the Union which they contributed to fouud nad not died out after ) the lapse of a century one lact chosen among many may i idicate here. A descendant of Charles Carroll, tlghtiug for ine Union during the late j war, was stricken down by a mortal wouud on the battle field, itiere was no priest nlgn to hear the tfylng man's confession ana give him the ao aoluiiou he craved. But, calling his most trusted j officer fa Protestant) lie forced nlm to receive nis lini couie^dluu, ho unci Dim t?y soiumn prom i?e to repeat It lu Ins name to a catholic priest at tn? nr?t opportunity, and expired happy at liiiviDff fulfilled iluty to hi* country ami nis Oed. When, later, his Protestant iricmt, with i streaming ey ?, besought tho flrnt priest lis met to hear this conlession, do you, reader, marvel that the miuistei of Goa was as Incr. dulous at first as he was alterward moved by the recital of an act of pictt only parcelled by that of Bayard, k ehrraiter *u us iwur ?< so nt rtprochti t Han Washington and Prankdu lived to behold wnat New Yor* witnessed last luesday, think vou thev would have felt alarmed at th? progress iu this land of tne Camoiie Church or at tue exaltation of an American Bishop to the rauk ol cardinal i They would have rejoiced rattier, nor would Benjamin Franklin's spirit rest till he had ootaiued tor toe see ot Baltimore and the wortliv successor of John Carroll the honor that has come unsolicited and unexpected to tne successor of John Ungues. But since mis last treat name has come under I my (itUj let me add, that had Providence spared to the Lulon tney had saved Abraham Ltucolu and William H.

The recent union of the Wesleyan aim New Connection Methoaists in the Methodist Cnurcli of Canada bus proved so barmomou* in action and so hopeful or permanent good as to awaken a more lively interest in other Methodist branches in the question of joinlug in the plan of a united Cana dlun Methodism, Outer the spur of thi* increased interest an influential convention id' representa tives, lay and clerical, ol the Primitive Methodist, Cuurch, was held a lew data ago In Toronto. Aide papers bearing on the question were presented, | and careiuily considered uui inir a series of sessions lasting throuijn two nays, ii nad been pruueutiy and very wisely arranged in advance that, no vote should be taken by tne (Jonvoution eitner lor or against union, but the prevailing sentiment of the i representative* was strongly iu lavur of a general Methodist union. WATER STREET MISSION. In a quiet way the Water street Mission Is doing a great work. It has to do with the lowest, the vilest and most ignoraut of our population. Yet the temperance reform has been pushed, and many of the most uardened have been drought to Christ. Ail the surroundings are evil, wholly evil, and that continually, overtopping the songs o praise are Hie oaths ol the blasphemers, separated on 1 v by a thin partition. Prayers are disturbed by tne revelry outside. On Wednesday nights nearly two hundred men ami women, wlioni Ha tail lias manned and wounded and left lor dead, gattier lor worship. The life ol' tno Mission is a woman Who Is herself a intraole ol grace?rescued, reformed and saved, lier influence over iter rude assembly is marvolious. How a woman trained as sue was trained, without education or culture, can speak as eloquently aud effectively is a wonder. Her liold on the desperate and hardened people with whom she iias to do lnuicates tue power ot a liv ing faith. FORTY-FOURTH STREET SYNAGOGUE. SORBOW Ab AN INGREDIENT IN JOY?NAD A11 AND ADIBU'ti SUDDEN DEATH. The portion of Scripture read in this synagogue yesterday related to the death of Nadab and Auttui, the sons of Aaron, who offered strange lire before the Lord contrary to the law, and lor which they Were slain. The event is recurdud m Leviticus, X. The Kev. b. M. Isaacs preached a sermon based on a phrase In Habakuk's prophecy?"The righteous uvotli in his laitk"?of which the sudden death of those umaitblul son* ol Aaion served to illustrate the point. HabaKUk, he said, prophesied in the days of Daniel. lie remonstrated with God for permitting the wicked to flourish, aud. he adds, "1 will stand upon my watch and flet me tiuon the tower, aud win watch to see wnat he shall say unro me, ami what 1 shall answer wuon l am re. proved," What proflt. the speaker asked, i* there in the great riches o'f auy man wno knoweth not nor honoreth God r ihe Lord, said the propuet, is 111 11 ir holy temple ; let all the earth keep silence oefore hint. And uien, in the oousciou-ness tuat sorrow is bul lor a snort time, comparatively, the prophet utters a prayer that is iiardlv equalled in tue whole Bible. Nadub and Abiou oien belore the Lord because tluy offered strange nre to Him. We are strange crca uies here oelow, growing old aud careles-i, yet each man says to mmseii, *'l am pure." We are given over to care; indeed, we are born to trouble as the sparks lly upward. Jaco'j songnt to end his da}s iu peace, but Ills purpose was disturbed by tue tuought that Joseph was no more, and his grav hairs were going down to tue grave 111 sorrow. We all are but travellers and piiurtui* here, whether we rule in carriages or walK barefoot. Mr. l>aaus here reierrcd to the boeavenienU of families, the sundering of uomcstic ties and the great sorrow that usually results irom such shi'AHAnoNS ar death. and then bade his hearer* not think that death was Hie omy tormeutur. The dissunulauon of laise irlends and tueir lorsauiug iu tunes of ad versity and trouble are worse. If in me midst of our glory we are reminded that we are but mortals nere, we must not di?tiiiss religion as if it wa* a lalsshood, We must take a mat view of our conuitlou in il e. other* Have tukru tue < up as bitter aa ours and draiu it loirs dregs. In the de.-ert o. Sinai, before the multitude or Israel, to uuitie wiiom a pillar of cmud advanced by day aud a ptbar 01 fire by M?ht, nlmosi belore Aaron had hnlsued blessing tlieui and they had offered tin ir sacrifices aud iad shouted and praised the Lord, ti.ey were ready :,o bow down to rnoltAn calves aud recognize tt>e dumo idol* as t; e gods wno nad brought them out of tsvpt. They should huve been happy to have had such signal marks 01 ui vme favor, cau we imagine an* one who should have hatl more Joy in i.ls nreast tnau Aaron to have Ins sons anointed priests ol the Laird with him' But see a hat a day brought forth?triev are both slain in one day.

On Friday last, after weeks of earnest and active search on the part 01 boats ot citizens, the Newton Sroltn mystery at Boontoo, N. J., was solved by the finding 01 lir. Hnitn'i body. About a month ago Mr. Smith, a well-to-do and popular saloon keeper, started out for a day's ilack shotting on t?e Passaic Kiver.

The river wn? searched 1111 und down and the shore*, nut no mini of him. altnoufh tne boat he hired waa iouud capslaed with the dncas in the oo'iom, wnicn Smith nan purchased irom a hunter before starting. Divers 01 experience, Willi tneit appa ratus were engaged Horn New York, but tney found nothing. At last there was Honed up by a villager smito's cost. Tne finding ol ttna without the Imdy. it being a cold day wheu Mini to stsrted, strengthened the general t?eli*r tnat lie had been robbed ami murdered. At on" time as many as two hunured persons were scart-hiag ,or the body, but ta vain, Pinaiiy toe search ?,.? given up. as a last hope tne ; friends applied to a clairvoyant In Newark, sno told them all about Smith- (hat ts. all that lud been air.eady published about the matter in ib< newspaners. The irlends returned, made one more effort,gnd lound tae body m tne river, near where the coat nad t>ecn found.
