The Pope was presented with $25,000
and numerous uddrewes yesterday by the
American pilgrim* to Koine. He discoursed
on his favorite theuie of the infallibility
of tho Church and did not forget
to allude to his persecutions. There
are a great many people who would like
to be persecuted in the way that His
HoliaeM is persecuted? It seems to pay
well. Speaking of persecution, we oh arve
that'liishop Uilmour, of Cleveland,
has been stirring up the papers there by
a church delivdranco on the School question.
He expresses the opinion that
there is no fair show for Catholics in the
United stale*, and that "all the element*
of government are framed und organized
fjr keeping them in the background."
This fiardly agrees with the opinion of
tho I'ope, who think* that tho Church is
doing marvellously well in thin country,
lie alluded to its progress in America in
hi? remarks yesterduy, in reply to the
addresses of Archbishop Wood and other*,
und ?aid nothing about any persecution
in the United State*. No doubt had
ho been called on for his opinion
oi our school system he would
hive denounced it. Being infallible he
could do nothing lea4 than fall in with
the general deliverance#of the church on
thin subject. All the ecclesiastic?, from
the Popo down, feci called upon tberate
secular education. Still, we have no
idea that hi* Holiness really believes that
this irt balf as bad acouutry for Catholics
&* Spain id for Protestants. If his faithful
subordinate:! in that country will
make things just as pleasant for heretics
as heretics make it in this country for
Catholics, there will be no need for the
British (lovernmcnt to remonstrate with

i- It is Btated at the Treasury Depart- n
ment that tho number ol' legal-tunder o
s notes, ones and twos only, now outstand* E
; ing is $o3,000,C00t equally divided be- ii
s tween the two denominations. This
e amount is one-seventh of tho entire n
d greenback circulation. There has been tl
n a very great complaint as to the scarcity o
of this class of notes, and tho theory at ]
the Department is that great numbers of d
them are being hoarded by the people, tl
Some have supposed, from the fact that F
0 the Department has suspended the issue tl
of notes of this denomination to privato ?
? individuals, that in the process of the re- ti
'* sumption of specie payment they will
l* acquire increased value over notes of p
s other denominations. This idea is alto- n
gether erroneous. The Department is \]
s still furnishing ones and twos to the
n Assistant Treasurers and the United I
r States depositories for the business of
n their offices. The total amount of silver
fc issued since April'20,1870, is $31,738,400. 0
The fractional currency outstanding, at d
this date, is $200,075,807. One million \
of fractional currency will bo retired t|

New York, May 21.?The Custom r>
le House Commission raet to-day in secret ti
r? session, which lasted one hour and forty g
y minutes. " c
'* The first witness at the public Kession h
e was Mr. Luckmever, inspector of silks ti
and fine goods. lie said that nearly all tl
11 silks were undervalued from thirty to p
forty per centum. There are more silks r
manuiactured than are in demand, and if n
these very silks were sold in Paris, or 1<
Lyons, or London, they would have to o
be sold at very reduced prices. He fa- b
d vored specific duties instead of ad val- p
1- orem duties. p
a Henry Himley, sugar merchant, testiis
fied that it was quite common for Cuble
torn House officers to take bribes when
d they pass baggage containing dutiablo \
t- goods without examining them and to r
io plainly ask for money on so doing. a
e- On one occasion, when witness wus H
coming from Europe, an inspector said f,
to him, "What is coming to me out of ?
this if I let it go right through without t!
ie examining it." Inspectors havo hung r
jf around his baggage and asked for money j
ih for not examining it, and if the money ']
r- was not given then they ramsacked the 0
in baggage ai\d turned everything upside
g. down.
ic The next witness was H. J. Meyers,
ie proprietor of the bonded warehouse. He ?
testified that there used to be only one ']
storekeeper at his warehouse, and he had 11
to pay him $20 a month. But three R
rt months ago they put a second storekeep- '
V. er in his store, and he had to pay him $20 c
1- also. Thin money is demanded as a fee.
ie Witness had to pay political assessment*,
s, and every year Mr. Russell, Superintendig
ent of the Warehouse Department, col- ?i
d lected the money. When he refused to tl
ie pay any more for political purposes they (i
put on the second storekeeper. Witness *
paid Russell $300 at one time to have r
ono of his storehouses bonded. The *
ie law distinctly forbids the paying of
jr, money for gettingstore* either into or out
is of bond. The political assessment paid
rs by witness amounted to $300 per year, e

Greeke are relieved from the fear ol
bombardment of their seaboard, their
anti-Turkish sympathies would predominate
even to the length of rebelling il
the Government refused to declare war,
Should England bccome in any way involved
in the war the Greeka would seek
an English alliance on terms which will
not oblige them to fight with the Turks
against the Christians. As a recompense
they will ask only that no part of Iiellaf
shall be given to others than the Greeks,
