We take tbe following communication from the Mobile Register, on the subject of Ritualism that seems to be tbe latest sensation in the revolution of events: Whether wisely or otherwise, the Epis copal Convention has decided to let Biiavhcm alone at present, aner warm debate, rnnnipg ihrongh two djiyi, on reports submitted on thin sutjot, tbe Convention has accepted a sub stitute for the reports in the shape of a resolution to the tftvet that the House nf Bishops shall consider both reports (njonty and minoritj) and inform the r .1 j tu:. next convention 01 tueir uouiaiuu. &u,. looks very much like dodtinp; the ques tion, which, perhaps, is about the wisest thine the Convention could do. For Ritualism is becoming a ti-eklish qies inn to handle, and by tbe time the next Episcopal Convention meets it may be a disagreeable one. TBI GROWTH OF BITBALI8M. Tt. ia nnlv a counle of vears since tbe new rituxl was introduced in New York. It wis then confined to a smtil cbapei, so far np town tbat it almost escaped no tice. Its noveliy attracted tbe public and the press, and pret'y soon everybody was talkioK about Father Morrill and tbe odd form of service at St. Albans. .Tbe little cbapei was crowded every hunaay afternoon and evenine. not with wor shipers, but with gossip and idle gazers. Father fllornil was laugoea at, u uo kept on. Gradually he gathered a con gregation around I im, and then the reg ular Episcopal ministers became uneasy. They appealed to the Bishop to slop tbe "show business" at St. Albans, but the B shep did not choose to interfere. He was not sure that be bad authority to do so, and besides, it was whispered that be was somewhat inclined to Rimalism himself. At any rate, he would not top "tbe show" at St. Albans. Stead ily tbe congregation increased, and new attraction were introduced in the little chapel in Fonj-3eventh street The sen sation increased too, and presently Rit ualism became contagious. It even invaded Fifth avenue. Dr. Ewer, Rctnr of Cbiiat's Church, one of the most fash ionable edifie s i the metropolis, bgan to copy from Father Morrill. Ritualism in Forty-seventh street was compara tively a small affair, but Ritualism on F.fth avenue was a great matter indeed Dr. Ewer's parishioners first wondered, then grew indignant, next became reconciled, and finally settled down into a likiog for the new service. Ritua'ism had secured a firm fooihold on Fifth avenue, and obtained tbe entree into good society. Presently it began to be rumored that Trinity Church had caught the contagion, and it certainly seemed so to the people dropping in there of a Sunday. But Trinity Church soon shook it off, and it then seised Trinity Chapl, op in Twenty-fifth street, where Rev. Morgan Dix, soa of the man who became famous by writing " shoot bim on tbe spot," officiates. D-. D x was not attacked so violently as Dr. Ewer, but the virua of Ritualism got so far into his system that it could not be got out. He does not practice Rimalism to qu'e the same extent as Dr. Ewer and Fether Morrill, but he believes in it, and bis be liel threatens to grow. TBI ItTtTALtSTIC DOCTklKI- The points of docrine of tbe Ritual ists are doubtless quite clear to them, though they may be bsxy to others. They have been ao ofiea misrepresented, lht ibe Ritualist priests are not now willing even to speak of tbem, except to persons i.f more tbao ordinary intelligence. The R taalists believe in paying homage to lb Mother o( God. Tney do not believe ia tbe Iaenecoiat Conception, bat Ibey go nearly as .r as Catholics did before tbat dogma became an article of faub ia dorelioii of tbe Virgin. Tbey eall ber Q teeo of Heaven and oar B esel Mother, and, i tteir prayers, they ask her inter MEMPHIS. TENNESSEE. MONDAY EVENING NOVEMBER 9. AT WILL. ON INSPKOTION, INSURK , cession. Tbey believe in dcoraiing the altar in honor of God ; in bowing before tbe altar; in exhibiting the cross as tbe symbol of redemption; in the com munion of saints; in coufession; in the Eucharist; and, in fact, in nearly every thing the Catholics believe in. They al nn.t hxlieaa in nnrffatorv. for thev sav there is an intermediate state of spiritual existence, in which nuls not pore enough for heaven, when they leave the body, are purified and prepared for heavenly joys. I do not know tbat tney tieneve to absolution from sin, out 11 tuf-y an oi, they may as well give up the confessional. They are inclined to favor celibacy among priests, for tbe same reason that it is commanded in the C.tholio Church. In regard to the Eucharist, they believe tbat the elements are only bread and wine, but they also believe in the real presence of the L rd, though tbey do not attempt to explain bow ibis is introduced, believiog tbat no human understanding can compass it There are many other articles of faith in tbe Creed that has lately taken so strong a foothold in New York, but tbe few salient ones enume rated are enough to show what Ritualism is. '' THI TINDKKCT 01 BITUALISlf. The Rilualisig will not admit that there is more dangr of drifting into Roman ism through their creed tnan through any other, though their opponents in the Episcopal Church maintain that they are going headlong in that direction. In deed, these rpponents say, when they are prticularly angry, tbat tbe Ritual ists might ss well call themselves Catho lics at once, since tbey have borrowed so much from Rime. The chief lights of the new movement maintain that instead of marching toward Rime, they are merely bringiog the Episcopal Church up to what its founders intended it to be. Not being a theologim, I will cot attempt to say whether they are right or wrong. I merely record what I hear, and neither make comments nor draw inferences. Dr. Er, who is not more than a step behind Father Morrill, declares tbat Protestantism is a failure He baa preached some able serraons on TuM t?..;l,,ra ,f PrntAatnntiam " which sermons have attracted the notice of prominent members of the bpiscopacy. One of these Assistant Btshoo Cum mins, of Kentucky replied to Dr. Ever last Suortay evening, maintaining that Protestantism is not a failure, and giving the Ritualists a severe handling. THI 0THOLIO TISW, How the Citholics view this movement is a question that is often asked. I have heard aeveral Catbulio priests Bpeak of it simply as a matter of course. Tbey are gratified at its progress, but not in the least su prised. The Catholics, so far as I can understand, regard the Catbohz tion of this country as only a ques'ion of lima In fact a great many of them believe the whole Christian world will one day be in tbe bosom ot iheircnurcn. When asked if they are willing to make any advnce for the purpose of receiving tbe Ritualists, tbey say they will not move one step. It is not necessary. They believe the Ritualis's will surely ge to the end of their journey, and tbat will land them in Rome. Perhaps tbey are mistaken. One man can form any opinion on this subject as well as another. I horeby state wbat I have heard from the lips of Catholic priest. It may have been wise in tbe Episcopal Convention to leave Ritualism where tbey fooad it. Had tbey issued a pro nunciamento against it, the Ritualists might have quietly disregarded their au thority. This woold be bad for the Cburcb, for nothing is more demoralizing to an organized body than to have the authority of its chiefs disregarded. Ritualism is a new idea, and ideas, like revolution, do not go backwards. P"' haps when Macanley's New Zalander visits London Bridge, to sketch the ruins of 8. Paul's, Ritualism will have passed iis prime. A Touching Love Story. At tbe mature age of fourteen I had become a being of dark imagining, on wbom tbe freshness of the heart bad long ceased to fall like dew, in consequence of my entertaining a fruitless passion for a charming cousin of mine, who was only even years aud a half older than myselt. One September morning, when I was about to return to school, I came to the fatal determination of declaring my pas sion; and, with tbat view, ran her to earib ia a maimer boose, which over looked tbe lake in her father's ground. I rushed in and fell on my knees before her (I remember to this day bow tbe fir cones with which tbe place was paved hurt tbem), and blurted on: my love in an incoherent speech, which mey have lasted three mioutes or three-quarters or an hour, so far as I am able to state a this distant period. I love to think of her now, with a moderate amount of gratitude, because she did not laugh ; but, helping me op, and kissing me on tbe forehead, she said : " Poor, de tr boy, and so you are going bsck to Winchester, ere y on? Mind yon are good at your lessons. Don't get flagged, wbieh won Id grieve me very much ; and here s half a sovereign for you, and "d I think yoa had better not keep tbe carriage waiting To this day I cannot help thinking that it mist have been excess of emotion which caused me to run away as bard as ever I could, witb the ioib safely etowed away ta my waia'enat rxvke-t.

Unaccountable Doings of a loulsvi le Man. Perhaps no incident within the recol lection of the very oldest member ot la's now very ancient community, ever ere ated more profound sensation here than did the sudden and mysterion. disappear ance, some weeks ago, of Mr E D Tyler, long a weil known and highly esteemed Citil'n of Louisville. He took" passage on tbe steamer Palestine, bound for Evansville, and before reaching that port suddenly disappeared from the boat, i L : - . i nC wtit it .1 .Knnlr behind inaviUK ui. ..iwii.uu k " " him in bis stateronm, as if to indicate a hurried departure, or foul play, or any th ng bat wbat was tbe real stale of the case. Afer his disappearance, a man who had occupied ihe stateroom with bim, left the boat all bandaged and plastered as if suffering from the effects of a very severe pugilistia chastisement, and this mys terious individual was fixed upoo as un doubtedly the murderer of Mr. Tyler, for when the two had entered the stateroom, they bad both been whole, with neither bruises nor bandages. This was settled upon as conclusive evidence that tie ap parently wounded stranger hd robbed Mr. T. and thrown him overboard, and detectives were forthwith put upon the track of the supposed villain. There were other surmises, however, as to Mr. Tyler's fate. Some believed he bad thrown himself overboard and found a suicides grave beneath the dark waters of the Osio, believing death to be the sovereign balm for all earthly ills, in whatever form it might come or be re sorted to. Besides, he held a life assu rance policy of $30,000, and this certainly was fully as much of an inducement as any reasonable man contemplating sui- i i j j : CIO couiu ueoiro. His friends here, believing bim to be . i r . i J J .drowneo, onrea a rewara 01 i uuuurcu dollars for the recovery of his bidy, his family donned the usual habiliments of mourning, and hs estate was adminis tered upon. To the astonishment, how ever, of every one who had koown of his mysterious disappearance, the morning papers yesterday annouooed his sudden reappearance in the ci'y, and that he had o ly been traveling in Ktnsas. There was no further explanation than this, and of course Mrs. Grundy was all agog to hear more. Mr. Tyler's aff.irs had become public property, and the news papers were expected to say so nothing m ire about bim. We are sorry Mr. Ty ler bas not made some statement which would have put him right before the pub lic, for there is no doubt that more in jd9tica than j'istice bas been done him It was confidently stated that he bad been in St. L uis ever since he left Lm isville, disguised in green gaggles, and wearing an immense beard, and that he ha4 been in caboot wilh the bruised indi vidual alluded to as occupying the same Wteroom with him on tbe steamer. 0 her equally startling intelligence with reference to the returned man was put in circulation, and for the last twenty four hours he has been the " one among . I L t. . I HnLIU ten thousand, so roucu ana me puui.u curiosity been excited by the strange in cidents conn'eoted with his disappear ance ... Yesterday Mr. Ty'er filed a petition in bankruptcy in the United States Court, and his liabilities are said to be from f 100.000 to $200,000. It is also asserted that be has left the ci'v wi-h his family for the E-tst. Louisville Courier. Buggies Without Axles. We yesterday saw a curiosity in the shan. of a buggy built by J. B Whitney, of 172 Grand R ver atreet, under a patent grant-d to him Janua-y 28, 1868, and which is applicable to ev-ry descr ption of wheeled vehicle, and is adapted to heavy as well as light work. To under stand this fully one sbon d see it, but to a person conversant with mechanics, the following description will give an idea of the p'an of construction. There are no axles, but a short shaft of maodrel, made fast in the hub, ech shaft running in two independent metal boxes, secored by proper fastening to a framework of wood or iron, in the shape of a capital D, with the addition of three light siaj-bar run ning across the D. thus making a very neat, ligb', and substantia ger. All tbe weight of tbe load and strain of draft is thrown upon the main journal of tbe hub, securing at the same time a liirht but rong and durable vehicle. Detroit Union. A War Sehe.

Special eorrespondenes Public Lsooss. Nsw Yosx, t'ctober 31. The closing ceremonies of the Protest ant Episc pal Convention were per formed on Thursday nigh', and were remarkably impressive. Tbe pastoral letter of tbe presiding Bishop was read, and was received with marks of the greatest respect. I', makes grateful allu sion to the venerable membvrs who have passed away within the past nine jetrs, and after discussing tbe variwos ques tions which have been considered by tbe Convention, urges renewed exertion in the dissemination of the truths of Chris tianity. On mooted questions the letter is generally non c immittal, and on that of ritualism, is whit may be called radi cally moderate and conservative; bat it is by no means weak in its blows directed against m titers outside the pa'e of the Church. F irinstance. it protests strongly against the illegitimate drama plays of tbe Black Crook style and urgues that its tendency is to debase, to ruin the taste of tbe publie for pure, simple nleasures and innocent amusements Whether tbe reverend prelate who penned the letter had ever witnessed a perform1 ance of Qenevitte de Brabant, thefi tht eat of all tjitbv Dlavs. la rn ire ihan I can say ; but the closing portion of tbe para- trraoh oo the subject ot tbe drama, so called, would seem to indicate tbat be had either bad a sly view of the d rty thing himself, or hid been made ao quamted with its peculiarities by some sinner who had seen it. He says: "In our daTS there is a licentiousness and grossness in theatrical and like enter tainments which won'd have been shock ine to even th less refined in the days of our fathers. We exnortyou to n-'e mese things, and above all to separate from all contact with these pollutions tbe youog and precious souls for whom you cave answered in the H )'t BiDtism. It is not only the religious people who dread tbe ii fluence of the kind of plays most popular in our dys. All thinking people are beginning to moral zs in re gard to th-m. When the Black Crook was introduced, the respectable world was shake i with shame, bm inexorable Fash ion, who governs in ethics as well as in dress, decreed that the bare-legged drama was proper, and her votaries lejaliz-si'. Then came the White Fawn and the Devitt Auction, in bilb. of which the main feaiure wi that portion of wo man's form, which old time modestly re quired to be sedulous'y screened from tbe publio gtze. There was beauty and grace, to be sure, and there were magni ficie it to:lets; and tbe music was in kejpingwilh tbe rest; but to those who weigh consequences, there was in all this show of betuty and graces a something lacking, without which the whole was but an evidence of a downward growth. Tbe i came the light, airy, doubifully decent Qrande Duchese, with its seductive music- Tbeo Belle He'ene, a little more suggestive of the " perfect loeseness," which so well mirks Freoch literature, French plays and French social life. At last, as a natural and necessary se quence, we have Genevieve de Brabant, iban which there can he nothing beyond, until another Aphra B-hn arise to write the libretto of ao opera bouffe, in which the characters shall appe.r in parts naturalibus, shall speak aud act jum as if there were no restrictions to be placed upon the language and the movements of those who cater for the publio amuse ment. The second adventists have not relin quished the hope of which I spike in a recent lener. Eider Snow is positive hat the end is very near, and Sister Bensoo predicts fir all the wicked peo ple a most ajtonigiiig time when tbe las' horn blows. She says that tbe recent convulsions in South Americt and Cali fornia are merely premonitory symp toms, and tbat before long we shall have c ur share ef the fright and the damage. She laaghs at Shakespeare's notion that these things are merely "strange erup tions." That ' Tb teetnln g ear h Is with a kind ol eholie pinched and vsxsd By Ih. imiri.M,rnent of uaruiy wind Within her womb," .he says, ia flat nonsense, geological and physical, for these violent retchings are warnings given to the faithful to make ready for tbe millealum. When twitted wi h the fact that these warnings have been observed f r many thousand years, she replied that it is impossible for man o read aright tbe signs made by the Creator, and that tbi ridicule which a' laches to those who have prophesied in correctly is out of place. "A single mistake ia a calculation is sufficient" she says, "to throw us back thousand years, but we can afford to wait, for we know that tbeablrssrd day is coming."
