In the evening, despite the weather, a large au dience assembled to hear the discourse by Dr. Baird, from the text "Mv Kingdom is not of this World," which was decidedly interesting. Report oT.

Physician. Welcome. We arc more than glad to announce the fact that Dr. S. W. Coombs, of Bowling Green, Ky., is joing to locate in our citj Beally we claim him ours. His diploma was from the Nashville Medical College. Afterward he graduated with the highest honors in the clinical department of the College of Medicine, Philadelphia. Dr. C. lias formed a copartnership with our well known fellow-townsman Dr. J. B. Buist. We know Dr. Coombs well. His manly hearing and professional skill arc only ex celled by his superior merit and modesty, and a just conception of the vocation he so worthily fills. frnnI Concert To-night. A number of our leading amateur musi cians, ladies and gentlemen, will give a concert of sacred music this evening, at the Cathedral, the proceeds to 1k for a"benevo lent purpose. The burden of tho entertain ment will be the leading parts of Do La llache's "Missa pro Pace,'' together with which will be given a munber of solos aud concerted pieces. The organ will be taken by Mrs. G. H. Wessel, who thoroughly un derstands the instrument. Mrs. W. H. Hart is the leading soprano, while the mu sic will be under the direction of Mr. Craig- linarl Trlinci OT-npripnv in silfl mnttprc will guarantee an excellent cnteitainmenL The Concert Hominy Niglit. The concert by Christ Church Sunday school at McClure's Hall, on Monday night, was a complete success. The children, un der the direction of Mr. John Ashford, sang beautifully. Their words were well spoken and their time was splendid. Mr. A. de serves much credit for his services. The choir sang several very fine selections, which added greatly to the evening's enter tainment. Solo, by Mrs. J. Bains, was beautifully rendered and received with great applause. Mr. and Mrs. Ashford sang several duetts, and we must say we enjoyed their singing. Their voices hlend vd beautifully together, and we hope ere long to have the pleasure of listening to them again, especially the comique. Mr. and Mrs. Snibbs, which gave the audience a chance to enjoy a laugh, and they did it witli success. Klnfnl Hirttngrs. The name of David Wilson figures often in these columns, owing principally to the fact that he has a well developed fondness for spiritous and malt liquors. He was be fore the Police Court again yesterday on the charge of drunkeness, and left five dol lars as a souvenir of his visit. James Brown (who is black) was fined five dollars on the charge of assault and batten-, and the colored youth who perfor ated Mr. Brown's structure with a pocket knife the day before, was fined a like amount, being advised by the court to re frain from such conduct in the future. S. Frankland was arrested yesterday charged with assaulting another and H. II. Smith has excited a suspicion in the minds of certain members of the police force that he was engaged in merchandizing without having taken out license to do so. Tonnff Men's Christian Association There was an interesting meeting of the Young Men's Christian Association on last Monday night, in the basement of the First Baptist Church. There was between twenty-five and thirty persons present, among whom was the llcv. Dr. J. W. Hoytc, who, being called upon, made some remarks to the Association. The most im portant business transacted was the elec tion of several persons to membership in the society, the appointment of an Execu tive Committee, and the appointment of a special committee of five to revise the Con stitution and By-laws, and to prepare an address to the ministers and Cluistian peo ple of our city; setting forth the object and intentions of the Association. At a meeting held a few evenings .since the following otiicers were elected for the ensuing year : John Lellyett, President. Willis Bonner, Vice President. Wm. Cassetty, Corresponding Secretary. Frank P. Hume, Becording Secretary. Henry Win. Fordo, Treasurer. The Association adjourned, to meet Mon day night, when the first regular meeting will be held in the basement of the First Baptist Church. BLACK DIAMONDS. . - Soho Facts ConccrnlBg Cekl. Fortunately the citizens of Nashville are not dependent upon a single company, or a particular section lor tue coai tney use, as there arc at least half a dozen different firms in the city dealing in coai, and the supply is obtained from various localities. At present there are about 50,000 bushels of Cumberland coal in Nashville and if the river continues to rise, a larO quantity will be brought down from, those mines. The Scwanee Coal Company probably have aiumt 150,000 bushels on hand at their yards; Mr. Stratton, who clcils in St. Ber nard coal, keeps a itttck of about 125,000 bushels, and is receiving coal every day; and Mr. Ward, who also deals in St. Ber nard coal, has nearly 100,000 bushels at his yard. In addition to this stock, a great deal of Vulcan, JEtna and Diamond coal is brought to Nashville; but the companies dealing in these kinds do not keep a large stock on hand. The St. Bernard Company, whose mines are located near Earlington, Ky., on the St. Louis and South Eastern road, have re duced the price of their coal from $4:50 per load, of seventeen bushels, to $3.50 j and for this timely reduction theV are fentitfed to the hearty thanks of our citliens. The SewAD.ce is sold for $3 "per load of twenty two bushels while the other kinds of coal arc sold in loads of seventeen bushels, at $4.50 per load. The present indications are that coal will be bought in large quan- i 'i ! r . 1 r . . . . . iiuus iroin me upper oumDenanu, during the next few weeks, in which case a re duction in price will follow. XE LQMOr AGO. Soniofning of Former Nnshvillo Not' ablcs. Inquiries liavo frequently been made of tnoso who some years since made quite a figure among us. There are a number of them, and as men's motives ore sacred, rer- ference shall only be made to then! as per taining to matters of information to those interested. Some pains as well as some pleasure have been taken td find the where abouts 01 those remembered gladly as well as sadly, in our city and by our citizens. First on tlie list we will take JIB. BOBEBTS. In connection with this name, who of our citizens does not remember the Sewanee House on College street? Connected with tliat hospitable landlord and noble gentle man, who, in 184S-49, when Carter and Thomas were running the stage ftoui Louis ville to Nashville, does not remeiuber Tyree springs ell, air. lSobcrts is one of the most prominent citizens of Buchanan county, Missouri, living under the vine and shadow of his own fig tree, near eight nines noixneast oi at. josepn. lie is tlie father of our worthy fellow-citizen, Clay HODCrtS. JAMKS C. KOBRnSS. This gentlemen, One of tlie noblest aud most influential citizens of Buchanan county, owning a magnificent farm six miles north of St. Joseph, is a son of tho former and a graduate of Franklin College near this city. He is eloquent) able and sincere. His is the scholar's, soldier's, writer's pen, tongue and sword. He most worthily represented the Democracy in the Missouri Legislature, and contributed as much as any one to the recent Democratic triumphs in Kansas, and the depletion of Badical majorities in tlie Northwest. All liouor to him. COMMISSIONER STOXE. This gentleman will be recollected by our people asholding forth some years ago on Cedar street as tlie Chief Justice of the Municipality? assessing and remitting fines at will. Not long since he was seen in Washington City in a subordinate capacity of the Census Bureau. JUDGE CAIiKV. This gentleman succeeded in 1S0S in se curing the nomination for Circuit Court Judge, and was elected, holding the same for some time. He now represents an in surance company as solicitor, 111 Chicago. SILAS F. ALLEN, the City Attorney during the years of 180S 09, will be remembered by even- one. He is heavy-set, low-browed and plethoric, and divides his time between practicing law and playing "pitch." His oflice is over Mastcn's Bank, on Main street, below Fourth street, Kansas City, Mo. He is a man of extraordinary talents, and although poor as a church mouse, he never refuses to strike when he is struck, and reluctantly consents to take a drink every time lie is invited, lucre is an outcome 111 that man yet. B. K. SHEIUDAN. As you go from West Kansas City to Kansas City proper, and near tlie Lindell Hotel, you find a lodging house, marked in big black let tors, " Sheridan House." You need not expect to stop there, for It is closed bankrupt, it is believed. Possibly our citizen tax-payers may have a faint memory ol onell. r. falieridan, who issued certificates of "loyalty" upon which to vote, and who dwelt for a time in the "Club House" on North College street; and who prospered and grew fat from the gathering of tithes in our midst. Now it came to jkiss that the Sheridanaforsaid also went to Kansas Cky, where he yet abideth. He engaged in the stone-quarry business, and, like Tasso's Jerusalem, not delivered, has been left without one stone upon another, lie is poor indeed. QBANT. This man, though no kin to Ulysses S., will be borne in mind as chairman of the County Commissioners, and as having something to do with the Nashville and Chattanooga Kauroad, while lnms was lie- ceivcr (and he did receive). This Grant, whereof we speak, is at Independence, Ks. ne evidently feathered his nest by very hard strategy. He drives his team and is well fixed. So much for tliat sort of in (well, we won't say what). THE MEMBER FBOM SUMNER. McKinley, of Sumner county, is not un known to fame. He it was who, in the days of the disfranchisement of the white men, was livelier than gunpowder in his Badicalisnl. He is now dealing in coal on Fifth street, a few doors west of Wyandotte street, Kansas City. METROPOLITANS. One of the former Metropolitan police force, whose name our informant cannot ' now call to mind, is engaged in the furni ture establishment of Woods & Abernathy, at Leavenworth, Ks., and another is making an honest living by tilling the soil near the same place. Jo. Blackburn. This personage, who has been found guilty of forgeiy by a jury of the Federal Court, has not yet put in an appearance, and from all accounts is not likely to rush precipitately into the arms of the United States Marslial, with a view of giving him self up From this city he proceeded to Lebanon, on horseback, and at which place he hired a buggy from Swindle &Ncal and started for his home in DeKalb county. Tlie horse and buggy was returned yester day morning, but Joseph did not come back and it is understood that lie defies arrest. Whether he intends to re main in the neighborhood of his old home, or to leave instantcr for foreign parts, is not known. It was Joseph, when in com mand of the left wing of Brownlow's " nie lish," in 1S07, tliat ousted Matt Brown from tlie oflice of Mayor. And now woldn't it be funny, after the lapse of a few years, to find him a prisoner under the man whom he once put out of oflice ? Time works wonders. Important Nnit. Tlie Chattanooga Times of the 25th inst., reports the case of W. L. Sprayberry a:ainst the Nashville and Chattanooga Bailroad on trial in the Circuit Court at that place. Tlie Times says: "This is an action against the Nashville and Cliat tanooga Bailroad Company for damages. On the 15th of December, 1870, Sprayberry bought an emigrant ticket of the agent of the railroad company at Chattanooga. The ticket was for the transportation of Spray berry, his wife and two children, from this city to Shreveport, La. Tlie family were carried on the cars hence to Memphis, where thev were transferred to a steamboat. The boat was lost in a storm on the lower Tississippi river, and Sprayberry 's wife and two children were drowned. Carelessness in the management of tlie boat is charged, and it is setup that with competent men in charge of her she need not have sunk and drowned her passengers. The com pany that owned her is insolvent, hence the suit against the road that told the plointill'his ticket."

Court, the "Boyd cases" have occiibied most of the time. Tlie frauds which these caseS brought to light were most surprising and brazen. Pension claims were made out for nersons who never existed, and for the siuvivors of persons who never died and never were in the army; affidavits nurnorting to he made by persons who were fictitious; childreu were enumerated who were never bom, ana marriages certified tn .which took place. Thos. G. Boyd, purported to be the guaraian 01 numerous orphans, whose parentsi appeared in court to testify that they still lived, to the best of their knowl edge and belief. Thos. G. Boyd, the leader and manager in the frauds, and arch crimi nal of all concerned, was an old citlzqn of juonroe county, who stood high with the people, and consequently was the more able to lead others into crime, ne was a promi nent member,, of the chmxhj made great prpiessions 01 religion alter 111 arrest, nu renaereu nimseii notorious by praying for the jury by which he was tried. He was convicted and sentenced at a former term of court. Gen. Vaughn, as one of the conspirators with Boyd, was put on trial this term, but owing to an attack of congestion ol the brain, his case was con tinued to next term. Esq. P. T.Butler, another conspiritor, has been convicted. As it was probable that his ageandinexperience caused him to be little more than a tool of Boyd, his sentence will be light, and per- naps it will be suspenuedi A. A. Boyd, or Monroe county, charged with conspiracy in the same cases, sub mitted his case to the court, and got off with a nne 01 1,000. Esq. Jas. H. Kelso, of Monroe county. connected with the same frauds, was sen tenced to pay a fine of $1,000 and to im prisonment for tliree montlis. A.

Saturday Evening, Nov.,.22 There were fewer excitiug minors current tc-klav than yesterday. The foreign advices were favorable, securities inXondon having been linn and higher, and money having been uown to 0 per cent lor prime three months' discount. The Bank of England rate was not reduced, but it is confidently expected that it will be at an early day. The bank is still gaining specie, having tcdav taken iu on balance JC2S.0O0. Here the event of the day was the publication, for the first time since Sept, 20, of the regular weekly statement. In ma'king up the statement no account, however, is taken of the loan cer tificates,the amount of which outstanding is about $18,000,000. The statement shows that the banks held, during the past six days, an average or $30,S99,B0O legal ten ders although now they hold $03,000,000, the average being a rising one. The other items of the report are not desen-ing of special mention. The following is a com parison of the statement rendered to-day witli that of last week, which was not made public.

Some of the weaker class of stock specula tors were compelled to pay as high as l-lo of one per cent per day. Mercantile paper was in fair demand at 12 to 15 per cent for prime. Ihe transactions in gold were large, and the market was feverish. Tlie opening price was 110, from which there was an ad vance to HO, a decline to 109J, and anad- nce to liu. Most oi the business alter one o'clock was at 110 to 110 J. The rates on gold loans were all for carrying,and were as follows: 3-02, 1-10, 5-G4, and 7 per cent, to 7 per cent, gold per annum. The specie shipments for the week amounted to $530, 410, principally silver bars. Tlie interest disbursements at the -Sub-Treasury for the week amounted to $759,300; the customs receipts to $1,707,700. To-day the Trea sury paid out for 5-20 bonds redeemed the sumot$510,000,and$19,000forinterest. Tlie silver disbursement to-day amounted to $350. From Washington tlie tidings come that Mr. Richardson is grappling with an other idea on the finances, which may be called the twin ot the live dollar silver re sumptive idea, and that he will bring it out in his report to Congress as a recommenda tion. He iaid tliat specie resumption was wanted, and he gave us tlie live dollar plan. He hears the demand for an elastic curren cy, and we understand intends to meet it by recommending the Treasury to print its notes and National Banknotes hereafter on india-rubber. This he claims will give such elasticity to our circulating medium as to render it unnecessary to draw further on the "$44,000,000 rcsen-e," which he has done "under compulsion." A THRILLING TRAGEDY. The daughter of Rev. Mr. Richardson. living a few miles from this place, having some misunderstanding previously witli a gentleman, went to his home, found him at work, spoke to and shook hands with him, and then drew from under her shawl a pis tol, placed it to his breast and fired.

The bond of Miss Ricliardson was fixed at $1,000, and was promptly given. Haynes was wounded in the right lung, and his condition, at last accounts, was extremely critical.

FINAXCIAIi "SCIENCE." We have daily demonstrations that finance is as vet far from havinc been reduced to a positive science, but we have seen no better illustration of this truth than the following incident within the experience of a recent Secretary of the Treasury: Mr. essenden once, while he was Secretary of the Treasury, had in con templation an important financial meas ure, but being uncertain touching its consequences, sent for two eminent bankers of New York to benefit by their views on the subject. These two gen ii -r -i . - - nemen immediately responded to jut. Fessenden's invitation, and in the inter view with him at the besrinniner of which he stated his proposed measure ranged themselves on opposite sides ot the subject with great promptness and a good deal of heat. They argued the question in all its bearings, pro and con, and at the end left the Secretary as undecided as he had been at the open ing of the conference. But he thanked his visitors for their attendance, frank ly admitted his perplexity, and said he would consult them on a future occa sion, and asked them in the meantime to give the subject their best thoughts. A fortnight later he called them to a second interview. Imagine the amaze ment of the Secretary when he found that in the interim his visitors had ex actly changed sides, and were as intol erant ot each other now as thev had been on the occasion of the first meet ing! Mr. Fessenden, it is said, more than once declared his belief that fi nance was not a science, and instanced this circumstance. An English judge lias decided that a quarrel between man and wife is not a breach of the peace. WOMAN HOLT, i'' ae oi mo iKni-dcrcrs.of Mrs. sarratt saiil in 186.

The only question was as to whether she merited the death penalty or other punishment. "it is saia that strong euorta were made to procure her pardon, or a re prieve," said I. "Yes, every possible means was tried," returned he. "President Johnson must have found it very difficult to resist such im portunity," remarked I. ''To hold the life of a fellow being in his gift, and refuse the prayers and tears of friends on behalf of the criminal, must be the most painful trial of those in high places:" "After eo terrible ji crime, punish ment was needed for justide io the dead and protection to the Irvine, said he, "It is said that President Johnson refused to see some one who sought nun to entreat a reprieve, remarked 1.

"The President had decided that Mrs. Surratt ought to suffer with the other conspirators," replied he, "and avoided painful interviews, which could be of no benefit."

GRUNDY COUNTY., Tlio Controversy 'fit) oh t the Removal of the CouHty Scat Reply or Mr. Sanders to Col. Colynr. To the Union and American: Altamont, Nov. 12, 1873. I have to ask space in your valuable paper to answer the article with regard to J . M. Bouldin, Esq.-, and myself, which ap peared in the" weekly Banner of the 2Ud October, and also an article in the TJidN and Albican of the 25th October, purporting tV be in answer to an article in the McMinnvllleNexo Era. I would fain have remained silent, and treated the communication in the Ban ner with silent contempt, but for the very lengthy reply of Mr. Colyar in the Union and American, which deals in such wholesale misrepresentation of myself in particular, that longer for bearance cerises to be a virtue. And in the few strictures I now' write, my pur pose is to keep within the record, and not to foUcw Mr. Colyar through all his misrepresentations, but only to no tice the most glaring and prominent, as supplementary to the article con tained in the Nev) Era of the 23d Octo ber, which is substantially indorsed by the most respectable citizens of Grun dy county, who witHessed the proceed ings of the County Court. It is not my object to detail the his tory of the removal of the county seat, except in so far as it may be incident ally connected with my reply. "When Mr. Colyar requested the County Court to submit the proposition of removal to the vote of the people, he tried to over awe and intimidate the Justices of the Peace with hia power, by telling them if they refused to submit the question he would mandamus tho (Jourt and comoell them to do so. And in the can vassof the county before the people, when the iilSoTreHcy of the Tennessee Coal and Bailroad Company was held up to the public gaze, and the mortgage upon the Tracy City property of S300,- OOO", drawing interest at the rate of some 20,000 per annnm5 and their ut ter inability to make a title to the land upon which Mr. Colyar proposed to lo cate the county seat Mr. Colyarwould then become very much excited and furious; would !rik out of the harness of legitimate debate, and wnt to fight. But, with all his bitter acrimony and vituperation, . he was defeated before the people. They placed the seal of condemnation upon him. He then became desperate, and so exasperated that he next resorted to the County Court, believing it easier to thwart justice before the court than before the people, and by fraudulent and corrupt means, the vote was made to read 448 f or removal and agamst, when in point of fact there waa 22G against and 1 vote for Alta,mont. A part of the -148 votes' were' citizens of Marion county, and a portion w'eTe ille gal votes at Tracy City, which we arc amply prepared to establish when ne ccesary. He then had an order made," adjourningtlle County Court to Tracy City, and Commissioners appointed to make arrangements for holding the Courts at that place. In the meantime, Mr. Bouldin and myself sued out writs of certiorari and supersedeas, and the same were placed in the hands of the Sheriff o"n tho loth October, the first day of Chancery Court at Altamont, but notwithstanding all this, Mr. Col yar, not being much of a Governor and having bad adv.ee, ordered out his militia to arrest the Chancery Clerk and seize his recoi-ds and papers, and carry them to Tracy City, the pre tended county seat, ordering his cavalry to break down doors, search houses, and take the Chancery Clerk dead or alife, ad. bring him to Tracy City. Such reckless' and law less conduct, on the-part of Mr. Colyar, has no parallel in the history of Ten nessee, emanating as it is does from a a man who, but a short time since, de sired to meet, what he was pleased to call, the Radical party, "as our fore fathers met the savages, with a torch in one hand and a sword in the other." Gov. Brownlow and his militia were re spectable compared with Gov. Colyar's. But Mr. Colyar seeks to escape his lawless conduct by saving that when I was ordered to Tracy City with my books, I had men with weapons about me. threatening anybody who took the books and papers. Now, this is all pos itively untrue, and Mr. Colyar cannot escape in that direction. It is tine that Gen. Hill, the Special Chancellor, told the Sheriff and his armed band if they interfered with the books and papers or the business of the court, he would put them all in jail, and they immedi ately withdrew from the office. Mr. Colyar is left witnout any ex- cuse lor nis lawless anu reck less condnct for calling out his militia in time of profound peace, and no impending danger, making it oblig atory on the part of Gov. Colyar to call out his troops. But his overweening greea ana op position for place and power having failed of success, whenever and where ever attempted, he now seeks the grati fication of his avarice through another channel, to oppress a weakly county that is financially embarrassed beyond its ability almost to pay its debts, by holding out fraudulent and pretended inducements to the people, that if they will but move their county seat to Tra cy City, he will take them out of debt, when m point of fact he cannot take himself out of debt. Mr. Colyar states that Mr. Bouldin and myself were ar rested and tried before a Committing Court and bound over to the Circuit Court, but he forgot to tell your read ers that he was the prosecutor, who is doing all m his power to breakdown tne present Clerk and Master, that he . . v ' and his may rise upon nis rums. But my sureties, he says, arc being sued by various parties for the viola tion of my official bond, which is posi tively untrue, as Mr. Colyar must have known whenhemadethestatcment. Yet he professes to have written nothing but what he knew to be tacts, .now much credit is to be given to what he has published to the world? Is it an aberration of the brain, a naliucination of the mind, originating in the feverish excitement of dreams of tne removal ot the county seat? But he states that the matter is producing considerable nrnifimiinf nmmirr flin Bnlfnrs. VllV t.At..U.'UW l.u.vu wuv " - - ' j is this, when the Court was open, and the Hon. B. J. Hill presiding as Spec ial Chancellor, ready to administer justice to all or to any of the parties litigant? A more upright, true and pure man never wore the ermine. I am persuaded that anj intelligent and generous public will know what estimate to place upon these accusa tions against me, made for the wicked purpose of breaking me down as an of ficer. Mr. Colyar is very bitter, in assailing me for what he calls a contempt of his court at Tracy City. Admitting that it was a legal court, (which we do not,) then who occupies the most unenvia ble position, Mr. Colyar for usurping the control of the executive power of the State, and wielding it against peac able citizens, and that too in time of peace, when there was no invasion from without or intestine commotions within, or myself? But he had as well submit to the law at once, for we are determin ed to put him through and make him pay his taxes, "if it takes all summer." R. Sanders. We have now given both sidesahear ing. and must close ourcoluinnsaguinst the further prosecution of this personal controversy. Ed. Tlie llroicnsville Stales of tlie 22d says: Jas. Bennet, charged with an assault to commit murder in the first degree, was found guilty by thejury and sentenced to three years in the penitentiary. " ELECTRICAXfe" . To the Tnion and American: Tn vrmr issna of Nov. 22 appeared arx article in which the author 'theorises very learnedly on the mechanical ef fects produced upon wood by the elec tric spark. He seemato share the pop ular impression that electricity has a greater affinity for iron, etc., thanoher Slings. The fact is it has just abont as much affinity for iron cr anything; else, as heat has. Iron will condnct them both. Iron does not "draw" elec tricity per se; neither does any of the metals, nor any substance whatever. The metals are the best con ductors; hence, a piece of iron or copper will be morel likely to be made the passage way of an elec tric spark, than a piece of; "dry wood near it, not because the iron' 'draws it," but because it affords- an easier passage .to the great reservoir, the earth. Next, the gentleman, says that, for a tree to be riven and split throughout, it is necessary that the spark should go down one or more of the central tubes and convert the sap into steam. Now botany tells us that the tubes of woody fiber, when young, servo as channels for the ascending sap; but afterwards they become filled with particles of in organic matter, thus becoming solid. If the lightning should strike tie tree and pass down the central portion, it would find only a very, very small quan tity of aqueous mtter to be converted into steam, and as porosity is a uni versal property of all bodies, the small amount of steam would find egress through the interstices of the wood and the tree would stand comparatively unharmed, if this theory were true. The sap instead of being converted into steam, is separa ted into its two elements, oxygen and hydrogen, which occupy a much great er space than steam, and the tearing effect may be partially attributed to this, but in a very small degree. If the formation of steam or tho decom position of water were the principal agent in the rending effect of electric ity, why is it that when the human body is struck, it is not "shivered to atoms" as is the tree? "Why is it that a solid rock may be burst by the elec- rtric spark? It most assuredly con tains no water? ohiroj.. The Unita Catolica, of Naples, gives some statistics of the annual receipts of Peter's Pence, which have never been published before: In 1861, the Pence amounted to 14481,000 francs; in 1862, to 9,402,000; in 1865, to 6,445, 000; in I860, to 5,939,000; in 1867, to 11,312,000; in 1868, to 11,000,000, thus giving a total of 71,161,000 francs in eight years. It is stated that the amount collected during the last three or four years is largely in excess of the average of the above sums, and that the total up to the present time will not fall much short of 400,000,000 francs. The great falling off from 1863 to 1867 is explained by the fact that the Pope's temporal possessions were deemed to be secure, and consequently he was not in need of large outside subsidies- SPECIAL NOTICES.
