memorable war. Who that knows aught
of Papal history knows not the bitter con

peace of convents, and stirred .the bile of
monks, on the subject of the Immaculate

it, "or rather of the blessed Virgin (for it
begins with her birth, and ends with her
coronation in heaven "that of our Saviour
coining in by way of episode,) is finely cut
in marble by Andrew Riffy." This would
have been a worthy pulpit from which to
proclaim the decrco of tho "Immaculate
Conception."
There is one circumstance connected
with this affair, to which we accord the
fullest credence, albeit it has been trans
mitted to us through the "Vienna Tcle-
i rranh." namely, that when this decree
i O 1 ' - '
The dogma that Mary was conceived
without sin, and at no moment of her ex
istence was under the taint or dominion of
pravity, was promulgated under the dome
of St. Peter's on the day we have named.
So tho same year which has witnessed one
great war commenced, sees another great
war terminated. If the shores of the Black
.Sea are shaken with the sounds of battle,
pence, with her soft and silvery accents, is
ihcard in the aisles of St. Peter's. What
eo many Popes had feared to approach,
-what bo many Councils had left undeter
mined, what Trent discussed, but could
not decide, Pius IX. has definitely settled.
He has voted Mary divine honors, ando
the system of the Papacy stands perfect
and complete, and finds, after n progress of
thirteen centuries, its culminating point.
We were mistaken when, three months
ago, speaking of the then expected and now
promulgated decree, we hinted that very
probably this was an honor reserved for tho
Lateran. There would have been a fitness
in proclaiming Rome's last and greatest
dogma in a temple where so many memo
rable dogmas, transubstantiation among
the rest, had already been voted to be
true. But tho roof which was privileged
to hear the first accents announcing Mary's
apotheosis was not that of the Lateran, but
St. Peter's. The Pope has at present a
great many distinguished strangers on his
hands ; like a good bishop, he is bound to
use hospitality; the ride between the Va
tican and the Lateran is two f ull miles ;
the streets of Rome are none of the smooth
est ; the Via Sacra at this season gets
miry and deep, and the winds howl mourn
fully through the naked walls and arches
of the Coliseum ; and at such a distance,
;and through such difficult paths, the din
ner hour could not have been punctually
kept and the cooks in the "holy kitchen"
might have been ruffled by being obliged
to serve their dishes out of season, not to
speak of those who were to partake ; and
so, for very prudential and cogent reasons,
doubtless, a less distant hall than the "sto
ried" Lateran was found in which to dis
cuss and promulgate this great dogma,
even, says the Tablet, "tho purest and
greatest temple that "hands of man have
reared to the honor and the worship of tho
Almighty." Wo think the Pope might
havo done worse than decrco the temple
"immaculate" too. When infallibility
was at work defining questions touching
the holiness of persons and things, it would
have cost little more trouble to have found,
"for the greater glory of God," that St.
Peter's holds the same rank among tem
ples which Mary does among mortals. It
is true that a few things must needs be
forgotten in order to the implicit reception
of such a decree! 'This pile sprang from
the foul box af Tetzel. It is surrounded
by squalor and brawls, by beggary and
vice j its precincts are defiled by atoniina
tions of all kinds ; but it might have been
held, on that very account, a more suitable
type of tho immaculate purity despite her
-earthly origin of her to whose worship it
now solely devoted.
But to come to more important points ;
the Tablet says, that the day that witness
ed the proclamation of this decree was one
of the higAdays of their church ; indeed,
the very greatest day in the annals of Pa
pacy. There bavo been otherwry notable
days of late, he gives us to understand.
It was a great day "when her hierarchy
was rendered back to England and to
Holland, three centuries of heresy;"-
was a great day which saw "tho structure
of a regular Catholio Episcopate built up
in the United States of America," they
were two groat days when the regium pin
it was abolished in Austria, and the Gall
ican liberties were surrendered in France ,
but none of these could compare in glory
-to that of tho "Immaculate Conception."
"The 8th of December," 6ays. the faWrf,
whose words sink under the weight of
what they announce, "the 8th of Decora
licr, in the year of grace 1854, was the
jterfect illustration and the crown of al
w.os nnssed. "Rome was intoxicated." We
havo high authority for the fact that Rome
is drunken. A seer saw her in that state
long ago ; nnd we have seen no indications
of late that she has grown sober. It is the
property of a drunken man to be filled with
fantastic joy from a very inordate cause ;
and we ate to set down to the delirium un
der which Rome at present labors, all the
extraordinary thing.) which have been said
and written on this occasion. The TaLkt,
which seems just as giddy as the rest, says,
for instance, "In the presence of cardinals,
archbishops, bishops and priests come to
gether, with hearts on fire, from every
part of the orLi terrarum on which the
sun shines, a sovereign Pontiff one of the
most glorious that has ever filled the see of
Peter with his pious people about him in
tears" (as close about him ns French bay
onets would permit, and grieved that they
could not get closer, although here the
Tablet is discreetly silent) "and the eyes
of two hundred and fifty millions of united
believers turned on him, and, as our Cath
olio readers may well believe, the whole
court of heaven smiling down upon him,
proclaimed a dosma that will livo in tho
faith and in the affections of Christ's chil
dren on earth till doomsday, the dogma
that Mary, the Mother of God, was never
for an instant in any way under the do
minion of sin or Satan. That dav, we are
told, Rome was filled with joy. Wc know
it. That day has gladdened the universe."
Indeed, the whole Roman world appears to
have been seized with nn epidemic madness
on the occasion, and bishops and all write
in the samo delirious vein. The bishop of
Marseilles says, that on that day "some
thing will take place that will sound from
tho heights of heaven to the depths of hell."
The bishop of Rhodes believes that Pius
IX., in declaring this dogma, "will effect a
remarkable weakening in the empire of sin
and death." And the bishop of La Roch
elle, in addressing the Pontiff, says, "in
their ardent devotion to Mary, a multitude
of pious souls are awaiting thy judgment,
punished, nnd those are miserably afflctcd j
who are the only good people the world j
contains ; but now that Mary is on the !
throne, all these errors will be rectified, j
The Bishop of Nantz says, that " on the j
day of the proclamation mercy will take !
the place of justice, ineffable sweetness
will succeed to the present sorrows, and
all these good things will be the more
previous, that they pass to us through the
ma ternal hands of Mary.' ' " It is expected,"
says the Bishop of Rodes, " that wars com
menced on all sides will cease ; that con
spiracies and plots will be dispersed ; that
contagious diseases, everywhere appearing,
will disappear ; that harvests withered up
in so calamitous and inexplicable a manner
will prosper; the earth will render her new i
and hitherto unknown homage, and she i
will pay her debt to the world in a way
worthy of herself. Nor will this be the
first benefit tho Virgin will have conferred
of late on the Roman world. Did she not
deliver the Pope, when other help he prayed
for in vain ? Did not Pius IX., in 1849,
in his reply to tho bishops assembled at
Imola, to feliciate on his restoration, praise
them for having taken care, above all, to
acknowledge that that event had been due
to the protection of ' the Virgin!" from
which we can only infer, that God might
probably, but for Mary, have left the Pope
at Gaeta and Mazzini at Rome. ' And this
too, explains "the tears of his pious people,'
of which the TaUd speaks. Yes ! when
they heard Mary's divinity proclaimed,
they recollected that it was to Mary they
owed Pius; and, oh! how iervently, but
for these nasty French bayonets, would
they have hugged the dear old man I
" You might steal God from them with-

This accounts in part for the large ab

to say with Simeon, 'Farewell to the world,'
and to bless thec, most holy father, in
singing the song of the swan. Our eyes
have seen the light bursting forth for tho
instruction of the rations and the glory of
the people." Another speaks of it as
"creat ing unbounded joy in heaven." We
dare say it will be news there. There is
no answering for the freaks that may get
into the head of drunken men. Their talk
is often very wild ; and projects and pur
poses are avowed which are at once aban
doned as impracticable whenever the
fumes have subsided. Were Romo per
fectly sober at thisioment, wo Bhould say
that she intends signalizing the promulga
tion of her dogma by some raid or out
break, after the manner of past times ; but
as it is, wc are inclined to put no severer
interpretation upon the following threat
like hints than wo would put on those
which men will drop in their cups. The
Bishop of St Claudo says, "this decision
is necessarily attached to the providential
and merciful designs for the world. It is
the commencement of events which will
form ono of the greatest pages in the histo
ry of religion anfl humanity." "It will be
great joy," says the Bishop of Marseilles,
"for the Church triumphant, an abundant
blessing for tho Church roillitant, and a
de'p confution for hell.'' The Bishop of
Rhodes speaks of the decree as "tho com
mencement of a tew era of regeneration
and sanctification in Christian States."
We all know what the tanctif ration of
States means, and the instruments with
which Rome usually conducts such pro
cesses. Add to these the words of the
Bishop of Marseilles, already quoted, that
onthot day "something will take place
that would lound from the heights of heav
en to the depths of hell.'.' But we would
not lay greater stress on these dark sayings
than they merit We are not sure that
those that utter them know their own
meaning) andwe are disposed to allow
coneidcrablt latitude of opewh, when we
out their knowing it," said one in speak
ing of Romanism. Blot out the name of
God from some Latin prayers, where it still
remains, and would any void or alteration
ensue in the worship of the Roman Church ?
We do not say that this decree formally
enacts that there is no God ;' but we main
tain that its effect is to obliterate God from
the minds and beliefs of the people of the
Roman Church. The decree bids them
not to pray to God, nor look for any bles
sing from God, nor cherish any love to
God, nor even think of God. It is wc
strongly suspect, the filling up of the cup,
for it is the last truth of the Bible left
standing now blotted out. It is not the
manner of that Church to deny truth in
the way of leaving its place a blank , but
to deny it in the way of displacing it by
the antipodial error. In this way has
she gone the whole round of revelation, ex
tinguishing one light after another; and
now all is dark, darkness that may be
felt. She denied the atonement by sub
stiuting the sacrifice of the mass j she de
nied the existence and angency of the Spirit
by substituting tho sacrament ; she denied
Holy Scripture by substituting tradition.
There remained only the belief in a God;
and now the Church of Rome has blotted
out that last truth by a decree which fixes
her, in tho feelings and beliefs of the mem
bers of that Church, as the supremo and
only God. However divergent their cour
ses and diverse their forms, all error has a
common point of meeting : and thus the
Infidelity of Voltaire and the superstition
of the Popes have found at length their
culminating point in Atheism. " There is
no God." said the French Convention,
when they celebrated the apotheosis of a
female in Notre Dame ; and Pius XI. and
his bishops re-echo the cry from beyond
tho Alps, in the apotheosis of Mary in St.
Peter's, "There is no God."
Monetary Affairs.
The New York Evening Post of the lth
inst, says :
The demand for money continues active
though not to the extent of the increased
supply. Money rates are easy at 9 to 1 2
per cent for good securities, and 7 per ceut,
on call. '
The demand for foreign exchange has
somewhat improved, aud sterling exchange
is now quoted at 107 3-4 a 108 1-4, but
tho best bills can be bought at 108. Fraucs
arc easy at 5.18 3-4 a 5.25. Bills on Am
sterdam, 40 3-4 a 41 ; on Frankfort, 41
1-2 a 41 5-8; on Bremen, 77 3-4 a 78,
and Hamburg SG a 30 7-8.
Importers are buying exchange with a j
little more freedom ; and will do so to a
greater extotit as the money market becomes :
easier.

reaction from the recent heavy advance,

The principal decline has been in Illinois
Central Railroad bonds, which fell 3 per

Central Railroad stock fell one per cent,

The difficulties between Messrs Page & Ba
con of St. Louis, and Messrs. Duncan, Shcr
man Co., form a general topic of discus
sion. It is stated that .Messrs. Duncan &
Co. failed to comply with their agreement
while it is alleged, per contra, that the
agreement was formed on a basis which
was altogether changed from circumstan
ces growing out of the failure of Messrs.
Belehcr, Brothers & Co. of St. Louis; which
chance of basis rendered the agreement void.
It will be seen from our telegraphic re
port that the failure of the St. Louis house
of Page & Bacon, has led to further fail
ures at New Orleans.

Statistics of the Past Year. The
papers in various directions, are filled with
statistics of tho past year, giving tho re
markable events, accidents, incidents, fires,
&c, throughout the country. . The entire
loss from fires throughout tho U. States,
for tho year, is estimated at about ?25,-
000,000. There were also 83 fires in which
loss of life ensued, the number of victims
being 171.
Tho number of railroad accidents was
193, killing 106 persons and wounding
589. In 1853 thero wcro only 138 timi
lar accidents, but attended with the loss of
254 lives, besides 469 wounded.
Tho steamboat accidents ot ttio year
havo alarmingly increased tho total num
ber reaching 46, with tho loss of 587 souls
and 255 wounded, against 31 accidents,
390 killed and 149 wounded in 1853.
Crime, too, of every grade, foot up a
fearful catalogue.. There were 682 mur
ders and 48 executions during the year.

The weekly bank statement, published
below shows an increase of $1,891,562 in
the amount of specie held by the banks
since tho week previous, making a total of
$15,488,562. This is a larger amount
than was held by these institutions at any
period last year, when their coffers were
swollen by the Mexican indemmity money.
The line of loans and discounts has also
been increased $1,731,875, making a total
of $83,976,081; which is much lower
than is warranted by the condition of the
banks, as they have been accustomed to
regulate their movements. A steady and
regular expansion of loans and discounts
is certain, as the banks, with a view to di
vidends, will use the money they hold.
Tho revival of export of gold is not like
ly to tako place beforo June, and in tho
mean while our Tory reliable scmn-month
ly supply of gold from California must con'
tinue to add regularly to the accumulation
of specie here. - ' ' : )
