There has been for years past bi |j few speeches made here more cheerful! received. (Jul.

Col. Taylor devoted a fe w minutes to each of the great and grai ih questions dividing the parties. To Jt e- temperance issue he directed his heagfe: e- in a line of thought that mwt plainly pifl rs ed the fallacy of Third Parly attempt nt and at the same time, elcquent! es and loyally advised non-partieai ae Tork.

Mr. Monroe assisted in nomiX. natini? a Third Party candidate for Conpress, to which l?et Col.Taylor owes h>A.do|3 feat more than to any other. No doubt that ? * was great glory for Monroe. We find him still interested, ar.xioua and venomous. h? He has lately issued a book?the title of I , which is a direct stab at the Republican party?and is being distributed after all the country papers have gone to press. Monroe being an eminent impracticable, he takes desperate chances to play into the hands of the Democratic party. This is only one of a hundred illogical movt-s , ry of the Third Party. If prohibition^ever " comes in Ohio it will come over the dead h bodies of these, cranks. Five percent of c of the voters will never be permitted to die- r. , tate to the ninty-five percent, and the Monroe feather weights should lose no * us time in findiug that ont. Si f The indications to-day are that there p will be voted twelve Third Party tickets ? It hero next Tuesday, apainat eleven last . year and thirty-three in 1877.

Two years later he went to thi Rome and spent two years in the Convent hii of St. Andreas della Vallee. While there w.fl he became the intimate friend of Cardinal jj" Wiseman, then rector of the English Col' lege iu Home, and of Cardinal Culten, then rector of the Irish college. Upon re- jje, 1 turning to New York he was assigned as jQE 1 assistant pastor to St. Patrick's - Cathedral. In 1838 he was appoint- ani ed pastor of St. Joseph's Church. aul He waa not well received at tiret by the parishioners, but they soon ' became reconciled to the change by his [ gentle ways, and ultimately they fairly 1 1 idolized him. In 1841 he wai appointed are ; by Bishop Hughes to the prcs'dency of SI. ^ : John's College, Fordham, much against * the wishes of his pariahonere. He ro- 1?T turned at the end of a year to Sc.
