AN ECCLESIASTICAL ROW. Illshop McCIoskcy, of L.onisvIIIe, Dis elpllulu? Ills Clergy An Appeal from the Bishop to Komc. Louisville, Aug. 29. Within the past week there lias been considerable commo tion among theX'atliolic clergy and laity of the diocese of Louisville, growing out of the removal and transfer by Bishop Mc Closkey of certain well known priests. The most important in Louisville, and tliat which excited the liveliest interest, was tlte removal of Rev. Father Bax, pastor of St. James, Louisville, and his transfer to Bowling Green, Ky., in place of Rev. Father TJeYries, w1k was ordered to Har-densbi-rg, this State. Father DeVries re fused to go and appealed to Rome, which action and otlter circumstances of a rebel lious character connected with the re movals, caused Bishop McCloskey to de pute Very Rev. Father Boucbet, Vicar General, and Very Rev. Father Dunn, Chancellor, to proceed to Rome for tlw purpose of representing the case. They are now on their way to Rome. The action of Uie Bishop in mak ing the clwnges is the subject of much comment in Catlwlic circles, especially in St. John's congregation, who made an ap jeal to Uie Bishop to rescind tins order re moving Father Bax, but without effect. Many wild rumors arc set afloat concerning lite changes. Various absurd and extrava gant stories were being freely circulated in order to allay what was threatened to be come a public scandal. Bishop McCloe key concluded, although contrary to usage, to explain matters from the pulpit, doing so to day in the presence of a latge con gregation of Catltolics. The Bisbop de fended his action and assigned as a cause that De Vries refused to furnish a yearly report of the financial condition of the pari&li, for which he was removed to an other charge. De Vries refused to go, and appealed to Rome from the order of Bishop MeCIoekcy. The case excites much inter est, as appeals -from Bishops are rarely made. The Rebellion on tho Isthmus.

Vernon, O., and have been there for four months, and that the driver's wife, wlto is employed in the Pa tent Office, draws his pay during his ab sence. Walker also says that a Jgeranium and bouquet nursery is maintained for the department officers at an expense of ten thousand dollars to the Government. Walker also 'charges that the department, in letting the contract for supplies to the Red Cloud Agency, pays McCoun, the con tractor, for transportation from Omaha to Cheyenne, when by law the Union Pacific road is required to transport supplies free for the Government. fiEW l'OKK, Unsettled Condition of Markets.

A prominent banker reports that the im mediate cause of the demand by the direc tion of the Bank of California for Ralston's resignation was that during Uie investiga tion a lot of bills receivable from irresponsi ble parties, aggregating in the neighborhood of a milion dollars, with no collaterals. wore discovered. It was also reported that it was the intention of the directors to have subsequently called Ralston into the council, to avail themselves of his intimate knowledge of the business of the bank. Rumors are afloat this mornine of an at tachment issued against the Bank of Cali fornia, but reference to Uie records sltow nothing of the kind as yet. It is reported that some heavy stock brokers and others who have borrowed large sums, in one case amounting to half a million, for the benefit ot tue uant of California, securing tlteir own bills payable with the stock of the bank-, are likely to become lieavily involved. Stock of the Bank of California cannot be given away at present. Collection day is thus far orocTCssinc with a mutual feeling of accominodaUon among business inen.

Speech fit ClevSlanli iiast gritrtrliriy, Cincinnati Commercial llsport. In dose connection with the false" clamor about Uie schools is another false clamor of priestly Interference la politics. We hoar a great deal said about a bill passed by the last Leg-slature, commonly called tho "Geghan Bill," and to listen to a Radial stumper or read a Radical newspaper, a man, knowing nothing else of the subject, would suppose that tbt bill Is a frightful enormity giving peculiar and ImihenSo ad vantages to tho Catholic Church over the other churches in the State. But these alarmists take good cars not to produce the bill itself; because it is only necessary to read it to seo that there Is no foundation whatever for their denunciations. There is not a word about the Catholic Church in the Geghan law, not a provision that gives to that church the slightest preference over any other church, not a provision that is not found in substance in the Constitution of the State, and that was not found in our old Constitution, lifer since Ohio has been a State, ewer since the year of our Lord 1802, the principles of the Geghan bill have been a part of our fundamental law. The old Constitution declared "That all men have a natural and inde feasible right to worship Almighty God ac cording to the dictates of conscience, that no human authority can, m any case chat- crer, control or interfere with the rights of conscience; that no man shall be compelled to attend, erect or support any place of worship, or to maintain any ministry aga nst his consent; that no preierence shall ever be given, oy law, to any religious so ciety or mode of worship, and no religious test shall be required, as a quaiihcation, to any office of trust or profit. But religion, morality and knowledge, being essentially necessary to good government and Uie hap piness of mankind, schools aud the means of instruction shall forever be encouraged by legislative proviaion, not inconsistent with the rights of conscience.'' The same provision, enlarged in its scope, is found in the present Constitution, which declares, Article l, section i, that: "All men have a natural and indefeasi ble iigbt to worship Almighty God accord ing to the dictates or their own conscience. No person shall bo compelled to attend, erect or support any place of worship, or maintain any form of worship, against his consent; and no preference shall be given, by law, to any religious society; nor shall any intcrfereno) with Uie rights of con science be permitted. No religious test shall be required, as a qualification for office, nor shall any person be incompetent to be a witness on account of ms religious belief; but nothing herein shall be construed to dispense with oaths and affirmations. Religion, morality and knowledge, how ever, being essential to good government, it shall be the duty of the General Assembly to pass suitable laws to protect every reli gious denomination in the peaceable en joyment of its own mode of public worship, aud to encourage schools and Uie means of instruction." Now, this constitutional provision com pletely covers the Geglian law, for what man will dare assert that the inmates of our asylums, or eveu the convicts in our ponitentiary, are less entitled to the rights of conscience than other men, or less en titled to the ministry of religion, or that they can be compelled to attend any place of worship against their consent? The Constitution embraces every man, woman and child in the State, the guilty as well as the innocent, Uie prisoner as well as the freeman.' The Legislature can inflict pen alties for the commission of crime, but there is one penalty it cannot inflict, one penalty that the Constitution Imperatively forbids, and that is a deprivation of the rights cf conscience. And now, what is Uie Geghan law? Let me read it, and you will see that every word I have said of it is strictly correct, and that the clamor against it has not the slightest foundation in reason or truth. It reads as follows: "An Act to seenre liberty of conscience in mat ters or tension to perrons imprisoned, or de tained by authority of law: "Section 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Uf State of Ohio, that as lib erty of conscience is not forfeited by rea son of conviction of crime, or by reason of detention In any penal reformatory or elee mosynary institution, or in any house of refuge, work-ltouse, jail, or public asylum iu this State, no person in any such insti tution f hall be compelled to attend re ligious worship or instruction of a form against the dictates of bis or her conscience, and it shall be Uie duty of every director, trustee, superintetulent or other person having in charge, any such institution, to furnish ample and equal facilities to all such persons for receiving Uie ministrations ol the authorized clergyman oi tueir own religious denominations or persuasions, under such reasonable rules and regula tions as the trustees, directors, managers or superintendents shall make; but no such rules shall be so construed as to prevent the clergymen of any denomination from lully administering the rites ot nis denom inationto such inmates; provided, such ministration entails no expense on the public treasury. Sec. 2. This act shall take effect from and after its possaga. "Geo. L. Converse, "Speaker of Uie House of Representatives. "ALrnojfso Hart, "President of the Senate. "Passed March 30, 1875." When this bill first passed the House of Representatives there were sixty votes for and thirty-two votes against it, and among those who voted tor :t were seven conspicu ous Republicans, one of whom, I am told, was and is a Piotestant preacher of the Gospel. But immediately afterward the idea entered the heads of the party man agers that some party capital might be made out of the bill, that it might be made to assist the anrs-Catbolic and Know-Noth-ing cry about to be raised for party pur poses; and hence these seven Republicans were induced, by party considerations, to forego their judgment, and to vole for a re consideration of the bill, and, only four days after they had voted for it, four of them voted against it, and three of them omitted to vote at all. Now, if the bill were a bad bill, why were seven Republi cans found voting for it, before the party lasli was applied to their backs? And why did three of them stand out so far as to let it pass without their dissent? If it is a bad law, why did not Uie Republican State Convention condemn it and demand its repeal? They were ready enoueh to condemn the Legislature, but you find not one word in their platform condemning this law. If it is a bad law, why did the Republican Convention of Hamilton connty, on last Wednesday, re fuse to pass a resolution demanding its re peal? If it is a bad law. why has not some Republican orator, from Gen. Hayes down to the least of them, or some Repub lican newspaper, great or small, pointed out wherein it is bad? But you hear nothing of that kind from tliose speakers; you see nothing of that kind in those papers; but you hear and see general declamation with out end, passionate appeals without truth or 'decency, and misrepresentations with out stint or limit. You bear it asserted that however unobjectionable the hill may be, it was passed in obedience to preistly dictation, and this assertion is made a text for a crusade against the Catholic Church and wholesale denunciation of the Democratic party. But what foundation is there for the charge? That some Catho lic priest, or pries's, may have expressed themselves in favor of the bill is, for aught I know, true: Uiat some Catholic newspa per may have advocated its passage may also be true; but pray, tell me, when Ud a man lose his rights as an American citizen by being a Ca',bolic priest? when did it come to pass that npon a measure touching the rights of conscience, a Catholic news paper was bound to be silent? And when, in the forum of reason, patriotism and common sense, did an indiscreet remark of a preaclier or a newspaper, furnish a just reason for assailing an entire Christian Church and an entire political party? And when did tuey furnish a just ground for charging Uie members of a General As sembly, chosen by tlte people and knowing their responsibility to the pdbpie, with suc cumbing to priestly dletatfoa? Nine-tenths, at least, of the members who voted for the Geghan bill were Pro testants, or sympathized with Protestant him. Not a few of them are earnest and active members of Protestant churches. Some cf them represented eonatituencies In WhlrJh tho CaUioHes are scarcely one in a hundred of the people. Did these men succumb to Catholic dictation? "ere tirt 4evan Republicans, tho Pro testant preacher included; who St first voted for the bill, servsthU of the Pope? Is there any man not aa Idiot, Oc utterly blinded by prejudice, who does not see that the chafgg la absurd, that it is a mere trick of party managers, woo Sre will ing to jeopard religion, convulse society and sow the seeds of perpetual discord in order to achieve party success? Can not any man in his senses seo that if party ascend ancy can be obtained one year by attacking a particular church, it may be obtained at another time by attacking some other e'lurcb? I can remember when a Univer salis Wasct allowed to testify as a wit ness in Some of the iHatesr when it was necessary to believe in hell-fire in order to give testimony about a horse or an ass, when, In som nelghorhoods, he was re garded as a foe to religion and worse than an inhdol. There are many people yet who think Uiat a Unitarian denies Uie truth of Scripture, and deserves Uie frowns and condemnation of all true Christians. There are others who reeard Uie Quakers as enemies of Government, be cause iney insist npon the gospel of peace and dony tte lawlessness of war. There are others who regard thoEpiscopal Church as a sort of adjunct to Rome. And so nf all the sects, there Is not one against whom, in the minds of other sectaries, prejudice may not be excited; and if Uiat prejudice is to take the form of political waifare, UWe is no sect that will be secure from Ha bale ful influence. The Radical manaeors now assail the Catholics, knowing them to be in a minority. Were the Protestants in a minority. I dare say some of these same managers would be found assailing them. JNo, my mends, the only safe ground to stand npon is the Demo cratic principle of equal rights and perfect freedom of conscience, embodied iu our Federal and State constitutions. The churches are powerful and efficient instru mentalities for good, and whatever may be a man's belief or disbelief in theological tenets, he cannot truthfully deny their con servative power over Uie morals and peace of society. But whenever they shall be dragged into the mire of poliUcs, whenever warfare upon a church shall become a bteh road to political preferment, you may rest assured that a blow at their usefulness will have been dealt that will require many years of pain and suffering before its evil effects will erase to be felt. To bear a Radical stumper talk of the Catholic Church you would think, if vou knew no better, that all the members of that church are under the absolute dominion of their preists: Uiat the priest has but to point his finger, and his whole flock vote for Uie party to which he points. There never was a more unfounded assertion, never a greater libel pronounced against a body of American freemen. In natters of religion, the Catholtc reverenUy receives the instructions of Ins spiritual guide; in secular matters he acts, as other men aet. upon the dictates of bis own judemeat. There are tens of thousands of Catholics who vote, and have always voted, the Re publican Ucket, and if the number of such VAf la I TTninUlilnrr if Sa Twf Kaaoxma f I priestly domination, out because the spirit of Know-Nothingism again stalks abroad, and threatens to obtain complete possession of Uie Republican party. It is not many years since Archbishop Hughes, of New York, and Archbishop Purcell, of Cincinnati, were open support ers of Lincoln's administration, and were much applauded by the Republican leaders for that support. Then not one of those leaders was heard to utter a word about priestly interference in politics, or nriestlv domination. On the contrary, these vener able prelates were lauded to Uie skies by the Itepublican partys and their example everywhere cited as an inducement to Catltolics to vote the Republican ticket. Nay, further, President Lincoln manifested his hkfh reeard far liu Arnhhiehan nf Vow Yorkby sending him on a mission to Eu rope, and Uie whole Republican party ap plauded the act. But did Uie course taken by those eminent prelates none more eminent or better entitfed to the regard of .1 , I f . I . . , .. iueir uucks aou ot muiiKUHl (XHliTW ine Catholic vote? Every man of you is read to say, no, for it is as notorious as Uiat the sun gives light to the earth, Uiat the great body of Catholics continued to vote as they had been accustomed to vote the Democrats continued to be Democrats, ami Uie Republicans continued to be Republicans.

Have you forgotten the petition to Congress ot three thousand (I think that was tlte number) Protestant ministers, denouncing the policy of a Dem ocratic administration, and with what a flourish of truupets it was presented and applauded? And is it not an undeniable fact Uiat no Democrat ever suggested or thought of assailing a Protestant church because of that "priestly interference in politics?' Is it not an undeniable fact that that though the form and language of the petition were criticised, tnongn it was said it was of questionable propriety for the petitioners to appear in their clerical char acter and hot in their simple capacity of cit izens, yet no one was found to deny tbeir right of petition, or to vil'fy their churches because they exercised that right? Have you forgotten Uie advent in Washington of a large body ot I'roteetant clergy of Chicago, who almost assumed to speak iu Uie name of the Almighty when demand ing of President Lincoln the is suance of the .Emancipation iTocla mation? and is not every man of you a witness of the fact that Uiat "priestly Interference in politics" occasion ed no Democratic assault upon a Protestant church, while on the other hand it was lus tily applauded by Uie Republican leaders and- the Republican press ? And yet these same leaders and this same press are ready to go into spasms if a Catholic priest has the audacity to exorcise his right as au American citizen, and express, however modestly, a political opinion that is not orthodox according to the Radical creed. r ellow-citizens, l am not a (Jatnoiic and I have no desire to draw comparisons be tween tho Protestant and Catholic priest hood, but since the latter are so freely de nounced for what is called their interference In politics, it may not be amiss to aac a few plain questions. What man ever iimu a political sermon from a Catholic pulpit? I am sure I never did, nor did I ever read or hear of one. What man can number the political ser mons prmcneu irom i'rotestani pulpits, Irom Uiat of Henry Ward Beeeher, in Ply mouth Church, down to thtt of the hum blest edifice whose spire points to Heaven? Whatman C7er beard of a Catholic priest making a stump speech? I am sura I never did, nor do I believe snen a mine ever occurred. But who can tell how many Protestant ministers have takeu the stamp, from Henry Ward Beecber down to the Gran ville Hoodies? What man ever heard of a Catholic priest being a candidate for office? I know that I never did, nor do I believe that any one of you ever did. Bat how many i'rotestani raiaisiers nave held, and liow many yet bold office, from Uie halls of Congress find of the State Legis tnres, down to the humbler offices of Uie county, city and the town? Fellow-citizens, you will much misun derstand me if you suppose that, in any thing I have said, I mean to censure, much less condemn, any Protestant Church or any Protestant Priest. On the contrary, I stand here to defend the rights of every church, and to maintain Uiat every man, he lie Christian or Jew, Protest ant or Cath olic, priest or layman, believer or unbeliev er, shall enjoy, to Uie fullest extent, his rights as a citizen; Uiat be shall have the rights guaranteed by our Constitution Federal and State the right of free speech, therigltt to petition the law-making power, Uie right to vote as be sees fit, the right to hold office, and, meet sacreu ef all, the i B. right to worsh p Almighty uoa according to the dictates of bis own conscience. I stand here to maintain that he shall not be Uadueed and proscribed because he exer cises these rights; Uiat a vindictive prejudice shall not be excited against him because be exercises them; that he shall be, to all in tents and purposes, what the Conrtitntion makes him, a free man. I stand here to denounce the agitators who would practi cally deprive any man of these rights, to denounce the Know-Nothing spirit thai seeks to reduce Catholics and ftfetgn bom citizens to the status of a degraded dass in community, to denounce the hypocrisy that pretends that our schools are in danger, or that our legislation is controlled by any priesUiood whatever; and I stand here to appeal to you, whatever may be your reli gious belief or disbelief, whatever are or may have been your political affiliations, whatever may be your calling or occupa tion, whatever may be the land in Winch your eyes first beaeld the sun, to set tbs seal of your condemnation upon the most heartless, insiocere, ilberal,anti-Acan and dangerous attack npon freedom of con scieneeTtbe rights of the cIUmb, the peace of society and the welfare of your Gevera ment, ever made in America since th Know-XotblBg banner, twenty years ago, went down la the dust.
