THE HERALD. the new cbcsade. In the Centennial year of our existence as a Nation, we are threatened with a ma lignant crusade against the rights of con science. We fondly thought that the blood of Catholic and Protestant which filled the tame bloody fount upon every field from Bull Run to Appomatox, hid b e used to baptise anew, the lofty tolerance which Calvert planted upon the shores 1 f SL Mary's biy. It would appear mistaken. An ambitious soldier, greedy of wealth and power, has blown upon the smoldering embers of religious fanaticism, and caused them to flame up again. It is day, men for we were gad reflection that in our love of office and advance - such a a ^he mere ment, would try to give fatal stab to freedom, as is contemplated by the secret aooietie*.organized to support a candidate, pledged to war upon the re ligious rights of 5,000,000 ot American citizens. It has to be met, and it behooves us to prepare for the storm, acting like the Ostrich of the Arabian des erts, hiding our heads when the danger is most immiment, to pretend that the Dem ocratic party, will not be compelled, by the Imperialist J unfa, and its Republican auxilliaries, to accept the gauge of ba tie thrown into the political arena. How can it be accepted ? By open and direct avowal —to stand in the future asinthepasl.by the constitutional rights of every American citizen, irrespective of country or creed. To the right thinking men, who permit themselves to be borne along with the cur rent ot Republican pa: tv politics, we must appeal.—and at once, is not an outgrowth of the Protestant churches, the men who organized it, are adventurers, and are unknown to the Christian militia of the Churches, who It would be The new crusade are doing their Master's work,according to their convictions. The pious men of every denomination, as a rule, are too seriously lent upon saving their souls, to inflame the pr^udiees of their people:—or to unjust ly persecute. To such, we put the question, -.fill it help you to salvation, to sustain by tout countenance, a party, which upon a false issue. is doing its utmost to drift ns into the appalling danger, not of a reiigi < a«. bet of a' polemical contest Look around among your neighbors and ac quaintances: do you 5nd that the color of religious belief alters men's nature ?

Giant, Blaine, Foster, cl ai. have warned the nation, that it i« in danger:—that su perstition. ignorance,. and priestcraft, are sapping at its foundations, and mast be prevented from »o doing. Let us talk rea sonably. Where is poor silly superstition at work:—where is it to be found ? To our mind it is the most inocuous element in our midst, its devotees are mainly silly girls, who pay their quarters or halves, to Madame Blanche the great planet reader, to adviae them upon tbeir love afiairs, or tell them who carried off their beaux —or the degraded fetish worshippers <jf the South, or the dreamers of lucky num bers for lottery policies, in the purlieus of the Northern cities, The peril from that source is represented by the cypher 0. Ig norance ia a relative term, many an unlet tered man is quite as intelligent, and has as keen an appreciation of his rights and duties, as they who read and write ; it' is however a very inconsiderable factor, in the sum of our continued national existence. There are about four thousand priests in the United States, twenty cases of their interference in politics, we believe cannot he given, out of tbe entire number, some are intemperate of speech, like tbeir brethren of other denominations; bnt such men are never honored or regarded, as they—who attend to their spiritual affairs, 'fiiere is a sturdy sense of consistency, almost universal among the Catholic laity, which, compels clergymen even if not so minded, to attend solely to their proper tuission. But the schools are in danger; how, from what quarter doth the danger come? Other than sporadic attacks, here and there, there has been no plotting, nor notion thought of against them, people , ' , g , g ,, ' who so charge, should have proof.

Laws of New Y'ork city his been elected President of the Uni versity of the titate of Missouri, to suc ceed President Read, whose resignation will take effect July 4,1876. The Rev.

Ex-Congressman Niblack and Congress Holman seem te have about equal chances for the Demecretic nomination for Governor of Indiana. Either one would be a creditable choice. The Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial says that the Presi dent has in his hands evidence that Secre tary Fish has inspired newsjmper articles ugainst him on Cuban questions, and that Mr. Fish's son-in-hw, Mr. Sidney Webster attorney of the Spanish government, has done the work. mg tat* man There is considerable talk in Mississippi of amending the Constitution, so that no citizen can vote in levt he can read and write, and the Democratic press ia calling upon the Legislature to prepare such an amendment for submission to the people. There is probabfy no simpler, and on the whole more satisfactory remedy, for the ills from whieh the body politic is suffering in Mississippi. Congressman Martin I. Townsend, of Troy, one of the wits on the Ret.ublican side of the House, is disposed to be face tious over his humble as-fenment in Speaker Kerr's committees. He writes to a friend:—"I was put upon the Committee on Revolutionary Claims, and Claims of the War of 1812, so that if any false proofs were presented I could correct them from my own memory." A Man Torn to Pieces by the Cora. Sunday morning about nine o'clock the mangled' remains of a man were found strewed along the track of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad at the Four-mile House, three miles from Camden Station, Balti more. When they were first discovered, it was difficult to determine whether the remains were those of a human being or not, as they were so completely mutilated and ground to pieces by passing trains as to be almost unrecognizable. The only portion of the frame which indicated that the mass had once been a man, was the lower portion of one leg and the foot. Word wa« sent to Baltimore at ten o'clock, and an engine and car dispatched, and tbe fragments of the body gathered together and brought to Mount Clare Station, and placed in a coffin by Mr. John E. Davis, to await identification, which appeared te be almost impossible. Speaker Kerr's Health. A special dispatch to the New York Sun says : The health of Speaker Kerr was such, when he left Washington last week, as to make his friends solicitious. Since then the announcement that he has undertaken a longer journey causes them ti be more anxious, and it is feared that the election of a Speaker pro tem. will be necessary b :fore the work of the House is fairly inaugurated. The last Speiker pro. tem. was Pomeroy, of Auburn, N. Y. i'hepro. tem. Speaker is vested with all the authority of Speaker, though neither can change the standing committees. Mr. Kerr did not, it appears, understand the force of House rule 108, or he would have made the committees on public expendi tures worthy of the important trust c onfided to them. In the last Congress the Deprrt ment of Ju-ti-c Committee though organ ized during that Congress in accordance with the rule, was a nonentity because Speaker Blaine chose to have it ao, A Ringing Protest. Charles Xordhoff, in the character of a Methodist layman, enters a ringing protest against the effort of any Methodist Bishop to commit the Church to a third term. He says that Bishop Haven has done a great deal at the South to widen the breach be tween Northern and Southern Methodists, and to weaken the bond of brotherhood letween the sectionq or at least to increase causes of irritation. He closes a fetter to ' The Herald' ou the subject by a sharp complaint of the conduct of Methodist clergymen, in endeavoring to use their in fluence at the White House for political purposes. He says of this course: "It seems to me dishonorable, and they have undoubtedly and within my own painful experience brought contempt and disgrace upon the Metbooist name by such miscon duct. In my judgment and in that* of many other Methodists,the favor in which our more prominent clergv have been held at the While House, and consequently in the departments during a number of years, ias had an evil influence upon them, and lias worked badly for the Church. For my [ art I should be very happy if the nex' President should prove to "have unconquerable aversion to all Methodist clergvmen.
