The teachers Institute gathered tbe
teachers of New Castle eounty together, lo
a church to Newport, on Thursday last.
The proceedings were quite Interesting, the
religious festure being quite marked- The
event of the day was tbe address, of a
clergyman named 3. S. Willis of New Tork
the subject being "The blble to the reboots.'
The lecture to spokes of by Iverylvenlng'e
correspondent, as "being received with de
editor of that Journal to say, that be sharp
ly censures the lecturer. Now let ns set
what It was, which met with such decided
approval. When speaking of the Roman
Catholic church the lecturer save: "Ton
aannot reform Romanism, It to Incapable
of reform. It most be laid away In tbe
mummy rags ot universal disapproval aDd
kept only as a curiosity. It to not lit for
life. It cannot llvs. It Is the symbol of
corruption. Tbe sign of moral death. The
sepnlcbre of dead men's boaes."
It to an Infamous Insult to the entire body
of Catholic tax payers, to have their church
slandered tn this vile, and false manner
The men, and women paid by meant of
money—applaud ihe clerical calumniator
and on tbelr return to tbelr schools ask to
be reaped<d, and trusted as the teachers ol
Catholic children. A teacher capable of
"approving" of a picture so false a* a his
torical fact, and so obnoxious to their every
day experience, Is Ignorant of the past, and
blind to tbe present, or a virulent fanatic
incapable of receiving the glory of Cbrtot
aln charity, or Imparting to a child tbe
aplrlt of the command "you shalt love thy
neighbor aa thyself.
The speaker shows such marked and
manifest Ignorance, of tbe subject he spoke
upon, that as an historical sketch It was dis
graceful. We select the followisg
"The Bible correlates with the dawning
progress of civilisation. It to, and always
hasb«eD,the test of popular Intelligence
and civil force; tbs complement of the alti

to-day at tbat disgusting mother of harlot?,

tyrants, tbe by-word ot the age; thescor
of tbe world. Spain bas not tbe Bibb.
Italy and Russia, Swltlerland and Ireland
—Tbe comparison might be continued In
It were difficult to put together so many
lies In the same space as are lo be found In
tbs above extract. Our respect for the
Bible, and probably our knowledge of the
holy book are quite equal to that of the
revsrened gentleman, and here let us state
broadly, tbat there to hardly a Catholic
family you can find without a Bible; that
the knowledge of the word of God Is quite
as general among Catholic* aa Protestants;
that Catholics have no hostility to tbe
Scriptures,—quite the coutrsry; and he tha'
says that they have, either deliberately lies
or to Invincibly ignorant of a known fact
Let.ua go back to the extract.
First. Tbe Bible had nothing whatever
to db with tha dawning or growth of civili
zation. Poetry, music, tbe drama, elo
quence, sculpture, painting, government, alj
reached tbelr highest development, before
the apostle* were commissioned to teach by
onr jllvlne Lord. Any teacher who
prove*" tbe contrary doctrine I* not lit to
tsaifh because of tha grots ignorance.
Second. Tbe moral and maternal cond'.

Germany to a standing menace to free Insti
tutions, with e discontented and Impover

Industrious, and content. Tbe least that to
said of England tbe better. There I* more
Ignorance, crime, and piuperlam In Eng
iand than In any other country In Christen
dom to-day. Spain has never changed her
faltb. If she was once mistreat of the seat,
conqueror of tbe Moors, was the mother ot
arte, navigation, poetry, end literature, sbe
was then, aa dow, Catholic, and we must
look to other cause* for her political decline.
Her social condition Is better at this hour
than either Germany or England. No man

"Recently Archbishop Purcell, of Ohio,
he* secured an act giving all prisons ot
the State Into the hands of priests on tbe
assumption that nlne-tefaths of all the con

The reverend gentlemen might be
cuqed for hie Ignorance of question* affect,

of exlsttag li.t ns, and callow teacher*
might "approve" such mistakes, but when

Txx THanks'-iving Proclamation of Gov
McClellan, of New Jersey, issued on Wed
nesday, differs from tbe usual stereotyped'
form, as, after expressing thanks to God
for His mercies and bietr-ingsht giving th*
people of New Jersey peace and plenty
exemption from pestilence, which ha
scourged the Booth, he suggests that "in
every church, in every community of the

and disposition, to offer, on the approach

Thebe is not much to be said in favov
of the Public Buildings, at Broad and
Market streets, Philadelphia, but it is
worth while noting that Mr. Thomas U.
Waiter, at a meeting of the Institute of
Aichitects, in New York, cited, as proof of
nig statement that "thi* country contains
meu who can prodnee anything that is
wanted," the fact that "there is aa fine carv
