In a recent number of that journal we find aa indication of liberal sentiment so rare in theae days of religious anil politi cal bigotry that we malfe an extract from the leading editorial. It is most credita ble to the bead and the heart of the wri ter. The article is headed "The Catho lies—Ob, the Catholics!" "The Catholics are increasing rapidly, very rapidly—uo donbt about that and if you had attended to your own legiti mate worli, and had worked as faithfully during the five years last past as have the Catholics, you would have increased as wvl! as tbey. The Catholics, prie.sts and people, siuck to their work—"all at it, and always at it.'' Ilad you done like wise, it would have been more creditable to yourselves and much better for the in terests of Protestuiiiam. The Catholic believes the teachings of his Cburcb and labors to spread its influeuce. And who blames ^hiin for that? YVou'd y^u not increase the numbers and influence of your Cburcb? You claim to be bcuest. So does the Cathoiic. You say you are sincere. So is he. You believe he is in error, and talk aboui fighting him. lie believes you are in error: he triea to con vert i'uu. '0, but it he gets the power he'll force me.' Well, if he were to that's precisely what you talk of duinj to him. Would it be any worse in him than it is iu you 'But the Catholics are seek 'n(5 to get the'conlroljof this government.' Well, BUf^iose tbey are—what the Advo cate is certainly uot iutlined to atiirui— but suppose they aro, then come out, 'hoti bright,' and say if you have not been aiming, at least indirectly, to do the very same thing Don't get mad. It will do no good. Anger is uo argument. Hon estly and candidly, hag not Puritanism, as represented by you, been trying for years to accomplish the sauje end? The Acvocate makes no charge, but simply agits a question or two. Ysur course as ministers, the course o! your press, and the course of a large por tion—a majority, perhaps—of your peo ple during the few yiars last past, is well known. The effects of it am very pfain ly to be seen, Ail this while the Catho lics have worked—in the tumps, on the fields, in the prigoti, iu ihvi huepiiul, aud wherever eUe they could find an opening. They desired to increase their numbers and influence the labored earnestly aud Ooastantly for that purpose nor have they labored iu vain. Why did you not pursue a similar course Hal you done so, you would now have uad less to com plain of you would have increased in numbers and iu iutluence aud bundjtds and thousands of men and women who have gone int* the Catholic Church would uever have done so had you and your co-laborers always maintained in principle and practice a pure, non secu lar Churcb. You did not do thlg and the result is, you have lost more than will be speedily regaiued. Don't blame the Catholics, blame yourselves yours is tb« Uuit, aud yours will be tbe sorrow. The Advocate is not set for tbe defence of tho Catholics, however. A large portion of their teach ings and usages it does uotaeceive. Tbe is Protestant to the core, but its religion is not o( the quarreling and figbt ing kind. The wcapens of its warfare are not carnal, it is willing to do justice to Catholics, desires to treat them kindly, and if called ou to dubate any point of doctrine, or any usage, wiih any of them, to do so respectfully, kindly and with a desire only to elicit, iru'L. The Catho lie*, for tbe greater part, have, dttrtug the few years last past, actcdly consistently. There have been a few exceptions, but exceptions do not form tbd rule. They have acted consistently, aud that's tfiore tbau PuitaniHin has done, whether it were represented by Congregationaliats, by Unitarians, by Presbyterians, by Baptists, or by Methodists. AnJ Puritanism pre vails very extensively in all thise sects, in tbe E*st and North. They have acteJ consistently with their profession*, while Puritanism did not. There's the differ ence, aud a difference which led to wide ly different results. Gentlemen, these are Stubborn facts, and the more you butt agaiuat theoa tbe worse will you bort fokt e a a "Consider well whether you had not better leave off that Pharisaio prayer, 1 thank thee I aa not other men, and adopt that of the publican, 'God be merciful to me a sinner Then, just in so far as the Catholics can Large Cities. The New York Tribune says there will be ten large or prinripal cities on this continent iu 1900, and that they will rank in this order: 1st, New York 2nd, Phil adelphia 3J, St. Louis -lib, Cbiengc £ih, Cincinnati 6th, San Francisco 7th, fcaitimore 8 b, Boston 2th, Pittsburg and 10 h, liichmond. In this list no strictly inland city is taken into account. They are all on the seabord or navigable waters running to the ocean. It may be as the Tribune asserts, but we think there will be a city in the central part of the coutiueut before that time that vill out number some of those mentioned. The opening of the Pacific Railroad: or the prospect of its opening, will cause a large city to spring up along the foothills of the Kdcky Mountains that will compete, and we think successfully, with some of those mentioned in the list of largo cities.— 1 be gold min^s of Colorado will support a large city, aud th? demand lor it will cause it to be bui't. A^ain. the eertaintv of immense deposits of gold in U^tah will attract tha attention of the people to tbat quarter, aud tbe result wiU be a lurge city will spring up in that territory which will astonish the rest of the nation. The ad vantages of either of these poiuts must be seen at a glance. We believe the next 25 yejrs will build up a city either in Colorado or Utah, or in bath of them, that will outstrip Pittsburg or Richmond and claim to be rated in the list, famous for tkeir rapid geowth and inexhaustible resources. "Westward the star of empire takes its way," and it would be strange if hig cities did not spring up as way marks to hhow the course that the people have taken in search of the aforesaid empire. Here^s one of tbe most beautiful as well as trn-'hful passiges in our language The humble current of little kindnes ses, which, though but a creeping Ptream let, incessantly flows although it gli les in silent secresy within the domestic wails, and along walks of private life' and Bakes neither noise nor appearance in the world —pours, in the end more beautiful Irib uto into tbe store of human comfort and felicity than any sudden and truusient fi'Od of detached bounty, however simple tbat may rush into it wit a mLluy speed.

And then, if we cannot put down the Catho lics in that way if we c«a not, or wiii not, preach better, pray more fervently and more acceptably, live more boliiy and unblamably if we annot evince a higher decree of Cbristain attainment, be more upright and consistent than they, and do more good than they, why we will have to let the to alone.
