THB GREAT AMERICAN TBAOO , ~ . .. 31 and 33 Veaey atreel, »i 14-4w N» s ygrt, Po*to_w Box 664* Father Hyacinthe bas been heard from, (says the New York Globe) since the awful calamities which have befallen hia beloved and beautiful Paris. He accounts for the terrible demoralization of the peo plo, and the fall of the French nation, as the result of the negation of God. In this hia viewa coincide with those heretofore | advanced by The Globe, and by many of the loading minds of this country. He boldly says the Church failed in ita mission "lt was too much occupied with dogmatic questions, and too little with the instruc tion of its flock," are his words. At the head of the Church in Paris was Archbishop Darboy, who is to be buried on Wednes day, from the Cathedral of Notre Dame, together with many of his clergy, who fell before the fury of the faithless and unedu cated mob. Does any one believe these men would havo been killed, as so many of their predecessors have been, if they had paid more instruction to their flocks and to the people of Paris 7 Tho Archbishop should have left no stone unturned to the rebuking of sin in f high places, to protesting against the pro longed celebacy of the soldiers and tho priests, and the legalized prostitution of women. Father Hyacinthe is a man of large views, with a heart for the people, upon whom all civil and social institutions rest. He says "the nineteenth century is the age of the work ingmen," and in co saying he utters a fun damental truth, already recognized iv this country by such men as Mr. Beech er, Dr. Deems, Wendell Phillips, Governor Geary, and many moro who might bo named. In closing a recent communica tion to the Gaulois, Father Hyacinthe elo quently and truthfully says: N'aris is in ashes. Tbe work-people have rod, or say it is impossible for them to be in or lore Him. Let the rulers, with whole hearts and brains, consider the I lem, and labor for the restoration of cc to faith, prosperity and peace." aye we any God in this country for ■be work-people of the coal regions, for the poor working women of Boston, of this ity ? Fortunately for us, New York is ot yet in ashes. We have the lesson of 'aris before us. i ... The World's Fair.—The New York Globe saya: We are glad to notice the hearty tnao ler in which the South is responding to le invitation to take part in the great Vorld'a Fair, to be held in Philadelphia in 876, the occasiou of our centenary anni ersary. There is much pride and patri ti»m in the sunny Southland yet, and we are snre that portion of our country will do what it can for the glory and advance ment of the whole. Says the Now Or leans Picayune of a recent date : "So liberal an allowanoe of time has been made that American mechanics, artists, man ufacturers, and inventors will have no excuse f"i Doing uuid,, ou- in «i lv particular. The exs hibition ought to be a thorough panoramic representation of the continent in all its fea. tores, peculiarities, and capabilities." There is really no reason for any jeal ousy on the part of this city or State be cause tho fair ia to be held in Philadelphia. That city is by far the best place for it, and she will, doubtless, do her whole duty in the matter. The East and great West cannot move too soon for their best in — s ——.

They are so uumerous that the ght trains now only consist of from six eight cars, instead of twenty-five or ty as before, and yesterday ono of the it powerful engines on the road was stopped twice near Nonconnah creek, Mississippi, while drawing a train of but seven cara.

DAVIS'S SPEECH EXPLAINED. [New Orleana Times.] It is a great pity that thoughtless peo pie in certain parts of the South will per sist in calling out Mr. Jefferson Davis, and badgering him for speeches. It ia also a great misfortune that Mr. Davis will make speeches like that reported from Georgia, wherein the hope and confidence of the' | volved in the Confederate struggle, are ex pressed. Thero is no form of expression which even so ingenious a rhetorician as Mr. Davis can employ, of the idea here shadowed forth, that will not be subject to misconstruction and baleful distortion. We, who know Mr. Davis, understand well What is meant by his language—that when he hopes to live long enough to wit ness the resurrection of the principles in which the Confederate movement origina ted, he referred to his cherished and sin cerely-held doctrine of Statesrighra, which he has ever maintained with Jefferton Madison, Monroe, and the other Republi can fathers, as th_ cardinal idea of our po litical system. This, Mr. Davis has always thought, was the real issue in the late so called "Rebellion," and with a great ma jority of the Southern people he does not admit that so plain and fundamental a truth has been destroyed by the result of a physical conflict and a preponderaoco of DAVIS NOT A HERO. [Pittsburg Dispatch.] The speeches of Jeff. Davis at Augusta aud Atlanta, Georgia, seem to us to com mand more attention Irom the press thaD their intrinsic merits deserve. The fact that he is delivering speeches at the South, and that these speeches have a tendency to revive the old antagonisms of the South toward the North, is worthy of some atten tion—just as a Ku-Klux outrage is deserv ing of notice. The Government made pre cisely one mistake in its treatment of Davis—it ought to havo tried him by military commission, and have hung or shut him within a week after his eap tuie. Of course it will do little good to arrest him now, as, even conld he bo punished for his utterances, it would only serve to render him a martyr. The parade of martyrdom now makes is simply disgusting. To affirm, as he does, that the government did its worst toward him, Is to utter a falsehood. Of course his thought was that tho disgrace put upon him was more painful to bis proud spirit than execution would have been. Few will believe it He was shut up in a comfortable casemate, daintily fed, and eventually turned loose t'-out trial. A man who seeks to es :apture by adopting woman's guise so high-spirited as to be more I by such treatment than he would bunging. •I\ DAVIS A POWRR'tN THE LAND. [Cincinnati Gazette.] •c words are of solemn import. Wei md them both to Republicans and rats. They cannot be pooh-poohed 'erlooked. They come from the teart of a man who ia still a power land, a man who haa influence in ratio councils, a man who ia the nan of thousands npon thousands ithern Democrats. Tliey are the expression of his deepest and moat pro found convictions, and the convictioua of bis followers. We ask Northern men how they like them ? How do you like them, Republicans, who fought that man and these doctrines for four long years ? How do you like them, Demo crats, who struggled side by side with the Republicans in the ranks of the Union army ? Is thia the man you wish to place again in high power ? Are these Southern Democrats who cheered Davis on, the men by whose side you now wish to fight ? Do not the speech and its reception by the au dience, aud tbe remarks, too, of Mr. Hil liard, show you how wide is the difference between you and the men who are enrolled under Democratic banners of the South ? It is the virtual announcement of a Demo cratic wing pledged to overthrow the amendments, undo all tho war has settled, repudiate the debt, and make a final at tempt against the Union.

I'age, as esoheator /emmonwe»lth, took possession of and at certain houaes in the city belongine tate of Fred. Harotb, of German de io had died leaving no known heirs in itry.

W vitbout recourse, ecember, 1869, Bailey filed a petition, in the hand writing of Page, alleging c held the property as escheator and it to proceed against it according to the (Bailey) was the legal owner of by virtue of an assignment for a val msideration; that Haroth's personal is exhausted ; and that the $1,000 was still due the petitioner. Accompanying the petition was the deed of trust to Saner, to ses cure the note. Bailey, therefore, prayed the court to enjoin Page from proceeding with the escheat and to give him (the petitioner), jude- Zfrit" ~ , 000 J be s_? "/Commo_w J ealt_ claim was allowed. This petition purported to be sworn to by Bailey. ' * "On the same day it was filed, Page an swered in due form that he had taken steps to escheat the property, but that when he had commenced them he knew nothing of the deed of trust—the houses and land having at that time been in the county. He farther stated in his answer that he believed Bailey, olaim to pc just, and knew ot no reason why the plain ill should not have the redress afforded by law. All this was sworn to by Page, as was the other by Bailey. On the same day that the petition and answer were filed, an order ? P ro = ured for tb e payment of the $1,000 ti Bailey. An injunction was granted against Page as escheator, and one H. W. Hey was appointed special commissioner to adver tise the property, pay the costs of the suit, and the debt alleged to be due Bailey in fall. "Matters stood thus until May of the present year, the commissioner in the meantime strangely failing to carry out the order of the court in any particular. Tbe sale took place, however, on the 12th of last month, and Bailey bought through a third party, but no money or title had passed when the bill referred to in tbe first paragraph was filed, so Holzapfel and wile were not too late to recover tbeir proper ty. They now charge that Page and Bailey conspired to get the proceeds by a fraudulent suit on the note, when Page was the real owner thereof; that Page for four years rented the property out for $16 a month and appropriated the money ; that all the proceedings of escheat are a nullity; that the small amount of Con federate money due by Haroth to Braver haa been paid eeveral times, and that the complain ants are the lawful owners of the property " Both Mr. Page and Mr. Bailey are promi nently oonneoted as witnesses, and otherwise with the Haunstein forgery case, in which •_- Mayor Chahoon has figured so conspicuously. What effect this case will have upon the testi mony of Page against Chahoon, the future alone can reveal. It has now the appearance of becoming worthless. The Celebration.—Every impediment to the success of the celebration proposed by the S. C. 8., has been removed, and we may expect one of the largest crowds at the Fair Grounds on tbe 4th of July next that ever as sembled at tbat place, ft was feared at one time tbat the movement might be defeated, in consequence of tbe grounds having been en gaged by the Old Dominion Lodge, Knights of Pythias, for the purpose of having a tourna- I ment, but at a meeting of the committee) of the two Lodges last night the matter was amicably adjusted by the union of Old Dominion Lodge with the Southern Cross Brotherhood, the Knights generously waiving all claim to a par ticipation in the gate fees, and both parties unanimously agreeing to appropriate the nett proceeds of the celebratiqn lo the removal of the Confederate dead from Gettysburg and Ar« lington. The Knights will continue their preparation! for their tournament whicb will take place on Ihe Fourth and will constitute a part of the programme for Ihe celebration. It is under stood that a number of Knights from distant Lodges have entered the lists, and it is ex pected that many of the Lodges from other cities will be present in a body to attend tbe tournament, and also the grand ball which Old Dominion Lodge will give on that night. We are requested by the chairman of Ihe Committee of the S. C. B. to say that it is pos sible some of the societies, _c, have failed to receive invitations to appoint conference com mittees. If so, it is hoped that none will feel slighted, but will unite promptly in the move ment, as it is one in which ail are alike inter- IThe committees will meet at Covenant Monday night next, at B*4 o'clock. ueOfficers Violating Law.—Two policemen, Mr. Clinton DePrlest and 1 John Disney, although sworn to keep I tee and protect the private property of lens against robbers, yesterday changed ctics, by becoming robbers themselves, linst the peace and dignity of the Com tltb, took, stole and carried away, vie I «, property which belonged to one of ceful citizens.
