THE MEMPHIS SUNDAY APPEAL. MEMPHIS, TENTlvT., SUNDAY, FEBIKJAEY 6, 1H70, VOL. 80 NtJ loT ESTABLISHED 184-0. The Ecumenical Council. From a lettor of the Roman coiron oiident of tho New York Tribune we extract the following: From rDeattl conversation villi oue of the most enlightened ami lib eral Catholic divines from the United Siate, now in attenduuce on the Council, 1 infer that no ential ciiunge has taken plao' in its tioliUcitl aspe'l siiice it- opening on the eighth ol December. A Urge majority an' uudoubwilly in favor of establishing the inlailioUity ot iht Pope a a tlosf uin. They are the friends of absolute j' mt in civil governmeut, and ah- In.- unity in the Church. In virtu. ol his ..tii -e a- suci-e-sor of St. Peter mm! Vicar ol Christ, the Papa m ciaiuie.il.. be the depository oi uni Veraal tru'h. as well as of plenary au thority. He holds the keys of the Kinaiiom of lU-uvcn. It is his pre- 1 tg&tive to ii-'iise forgiveness of Biiie, to bind and loose in the court 01 , conscieiti-e, to announce to niau the deensw of the Almighty. He rules tin- Church by divine right; he d- rises his power trom uo human source. t.ut is huusell Uie lomula won of all Hiwer; the clergy are his creatures and instrutii'-iit-, ami have no a).;..Mi fnmi his sovereign will, ll his authority is thus paramount in the Church, on UU stronger gr.mniis sliould it lie paramount in secular governments. As all authority M jiom God, and as lie is the representa tive ol tiixl on earth, his domiuion naturallv embraces the rule of human sovereigns. To htm, their feaity la due, from him, their authority eman ates, and of htm, they hold the clmr-t.-.r f their tt-iniorai ritclits.

On the other extreme, are the pre lates who contend lor the participa tion of the clergy iu the Infallibility t the Church, and w ho beiteve that they are the authorized channel- ol divine taflaaoee a-well as the Pom.

Sir: 1 was not present in' court yix terday to hear your remarks on Mr. Stanton, but to-day I was shown a newspaper report of them, which I presume to be perfect ly accurate. The tollowing paragrapu nas struct, me efta -urprise: But it Is not of the lawyer, emi nent as he was in the science and practice of the law, that men chiefly think as they renumber him. Hi service to mankind was on a higher and wider field. He was appointed Attorney-! neral by Mr. Buchanan, on the 2Mh of lecember, lbOii, in one of the darkest hours of the country's history, when the Union seemed crumbling to pieces, without an arm raised fcc its support; when 1 without the public counsel- was doubting, and within were fears;' when teebh-ne-s and treachery were uniting to yield whatever defiant rebellion might de mand, and good men everywhere were ready to di-spair of the Republic.
