Uiica, N. Y., Kor. 13?In the German Catholic
Church, yesterday, a difficulty occurred during aer
vice, growing out of a misunderstanding between
tlic priest and the St. Joseph's Society, concerning
a banner, and with regard to which legal measure*
lutd resulted in favor of the society. ?? JB*"
yesterday stated that there were thieve# and liars
present in the congregation, and he *j? '
therefore, proceed with the services. The priest
then withdrew, when a light ensued among the
congregation, resulting in the interference of an
officer and the arrest of four persons.

New York Election?the Governor itill in doubt
? New York, Nov. 14, evening.?Up to the pres

sixteen counties. Taking as a basis the table of
the Times, of this morning, which showed 279 ma
jority for Clark, we now, by the changes in the
official returns, figure out a majority for Seymour
of 467. Nearly every official return differs more
or less from the first receivod. The miyoritv, there

other until every official return shall have been re

THE CONVENTION OF ROMANIST BISH
OPS AT ROME.
No Ecumenical of Romish Council has as
sembled since the Council of Trent, in the six
teenth century. Whether the convention now
assembling at Rome, under orders from his
holiness the sovereign pontiff, is to have the
authority, and to be entitled an ecumenical, or
Coneral council, the world is not yet informed;
ut one thiug is certain, it is a conspiracy
against the civil and religious liberties of man
kind?? conspiracy to counteract the progress
of knowledge, ana especially of Bible know
ledge, which, for some years past, has been
pervading the darkest dominions of Romanism,
threatening to overturn the throne of the pope,
and the reign of the Romish hierarchy, sup
ported by civil despotism. The signs of the
times are alarming to the unholv alliance. En
rope has been awakened from tne sleep of ages.
The light has penetrated the masses in every
Roman Catholic counter. The people begin
to inquire into the origin, nature and rightihl
powers of civil government, and to perceive
that Romanism is the great support of despot
ism and tyranny. Tne revolution of 1848,
and its sequences, have let in a flood of light
on these wutyects. The people forcod from
their rulers written constitutions which guar
anteed important rights and privileges to the
governed, and went far to limit arbitrary
power. But, warned by the excesses of an
archy in the French revolution, they feared to
adopt republican forms of government, and re
stored the dynasties which they had in fact
overturned. The despots were humbled, and
readily conformed to the general demand for
constitutions, which, though they limited their
power, would leave them in possession of the
means of subverting these constitutions when
the popular organizations which enforced the
grant should havo passed away.
Among the mistakes which the people made
after they had gained the ascendency, wiui the
leaving of the military power?the standing
armies?under the control of the despots they
thought they had bridled. The oonsequcnccs
wore that when emperors, kings, and petty
princes got over their fright, thev violated all
their engagements, abrogated all the grants
made in favor of liberty, and with the power
of the sword, and In alliance with the priest
hood. re-established the absolute despotisms
whicn had been overthrown by the revolution.
The emperor of Austria led the way, the petty
sovereigns followed suit, and the people every
where saw all the work of the revolution frus
trated, and utterly destroyod, by those whom
their own mercy had spared, and intrusted
with the executive power. Thus " the power
to do wrong with impuuity seldom waits long
for the will?' A writer on the continent face
tiously observes, tliat the people have discov
ered in the history of their struggle of 1848
that despots and aristocrats, as well as tlio Ro
mish hierarchy, are, every one of them, " a
head too lony. They will, in the next strug
{le for liberty, reap the fruits of this discoyorv.
t is a fearfm apprehension, but an inevitable
consequence of their treachery and breach of
faith with the people.
Yet one advantage was gained by the revo
lution of 1848. It opened many avenues at
the time for the entrance of light Tho Bible
found its way to the people; am\ thenross,
entering through ovory open door, carried with
it ideas inooinpetible with the feudal syst??iin,
and the absurd superstitions of popory. What
is to be done by the pontiff?-he who assumes
to be the legate of Christ on earth T A council
is called, to assemble at Rome, to devise ways
and means to preserve and extend the power
of holy mother Church, which assumes to lie
" the mother and mistress of all churches,"
with divine authority to prescrilte both doc
trino and discipline to all the world.
But there arc other troubles which have con
tributed to the call of the forthcoming council.
Ireland, " the land of saints," has givan signs
of heretical defection. Vast numbers of the
people hare renounced Rmnaskan and kerned
Protustanfa* outright; sod tile defection from
Romanism in wideniug ?u?d spreading through
out the kingdom; an in the United Stateu the
opposition of the Romanist priesthood to popu
lax education, and the open declaration that
when they shall have attained a sufficient nu
merical majority, m the ever swelling tide of
immigration held out confident hopes would
shortly be effected, there would be an end of
both civil and religious liberty, has awakened
the Protestant part of the population to a sense
of their danger, and to vigorous resistance.
Something must be done to meet all these exi
gencies, and what could be thought of but a
Church council held under the eye of the Pope,
in the eternal city; this having been the expe
dient resorted to to stay the progress of Pro
tcsttuiism in the 16th century, when the terrible
Luther had shaken the very pillars of the Vat
ican.
What the council will do may not be even
conjectured Romanism cannot abate any of
her claims to absolute supremacy. It would
contradict her pretensions to infallibility. But
we may expect a bull declaring the paternal re
gard of his holiness for the dear people, and his
regard ft* their rights. This he luid done be
fore ha fled from Rome in the night, when the
citizens required some proof of his regard for
their rights in the amelioration of the civil
government. But tills is mere surmise. No
man can paedict what will be done; and what
is worse, no Paul Scarpi will be allowed to tell
the world what was done and said in the coun
cil, after it is over. Well, we are assured that
the counsels of the wicked shall come to nought

THE PEERLESS YANKEE FLAG.
All bail! triumphant flag,
The ensign of the free,
Bright beacon of tho brave,
Banner of Liberty! * ?
It is no "flaunting lie,"
Tis no "polluted rag,"
It proudly waves on high?
The peerless Yankee flag.
It shields no pirate's deck,
It binds no man in chains,
It yokes no captive's neck,
But nobly heeds his claims;
Its stripes are " burning sores,"
To traitors and to knaves,
Who breed inhuman wars,
To fraternize with slaves.
Its stars are living lights,
To guide us safely on,
And curs'd be he who strikes
The biasing standard down!
Accurs'd the wretch whose hand,
Fill'd with a traitor's gold,
Shall seek to mar and brand
His country's sacred fold!
Unfurl the glorious sheen,
Its disc is pure and bright;
Unconqucr'd and supreme,
Its motto li IVuth aiul Right."
It is no flaunting lie,
'Tis no pollnted raq,
It proudly waves on liigh?
The peerless Yankee Flag!
It waves in triumph there?
Destroy it ye who dare!
AUTUMN.?BT N. P. WILLIS.
Like some richly illuminated manuscript of
cloistered art, the wonder book of nature is
spreading out its autumn pages in all their
wonted brilliancy of mingled coloring; every
mountain is a swelling mound of jewelled lus
tre, and every vale and clump of woodland a
blending of rich rainbow tints, over which a
bright sun-warmed haze is spread, such as the
old missal painters used to canopy the heads
of saints and apostles with a halo of golden
light The hoar-frost covers the meadows in
tho early morning, and lies in crisp-sparkling
wreaths upon the fences and bamroofs, while
overhead a sky of the deepest blue is beginning
to soften under the sunshino. Not a leaf quiv
ers, and the pale cottage smoke curls in a
straight, unwavering column through the frosty
air, while cloudlets of mist rest lingoringly on
the lake, or creep lazily up the hillsides.
There is an exhileration in the air, nnd a
new life in the wind tliat comes careering from
the northwest, bearing frost in its wings, and
brightness to the autumn woods. The farmer
is early afield with his cheery call, as he guides
his oxen to the late harvesting. The maize
fields display their tent-like rows, with garni
ture of yellow pumpkins scattered between;
and the buckwheat patches, no longer yielding
their " honied fragrance," are falling before the
quick-swinging cradle, and lie like red spots
upon the landscape. The orchards are brim
ming with rosy fruit, and the chestnut burs
are showering down their treasures jn the
woods. Plenty seems to reign, and the ftill
ness of tho year has put its stamp of gladness
upon all.
" A mellow richness on the clustered trees;
And, from a lieaker full of richest dyes.
Pouring new glory on the autumn woods
And dipping in warm light the pillared clouds;
Morn, on the mountain, Uke a summer bird,
Lifts up her purple wing; and In the vales
The gentle wind, a sweet and passionate rover,
Kisseti the blushing leaves and stirs up Hfo
Within the solemn woods of ash, deep crimsoned,
And silver beech, the maple yellow leaved?
Where Autumn, like a faint old man, sits down
By the wayside aweary. Through the trees '
The golden robin moves; the purple finch,
That on wild cherry and red cedar feeds,
A winter bird conies withiu its plaintive whistle
And pecks by the wycb-haxel; while aloft
From cottage roof* the warbling bluebird sings."

" Ze Nebraska Bill."?We presume the

Bwixulimi.?A. friend of our* iufuruM u* li??t
several of Ua acquaintance* have been the v ictvma
of tut individual, (a lady we will not caH her, though
she belongs to the leiuale ?e*,) who, In Wan than
two yearn, has obtained money from all elates of
persoua?from Cabinet Ministers, Foreign Ministers,
and Members of Cougreaa, down to clerks and
others?to the amount often and twenty thousand
dollars. Two or three of these acquaintances, he
iuforai* us, were bl?d to the tune of one thou
sand each. The lady in question, be says, is nei
ther fascinating, handsome, refined in manners, nor
elegant in her carriage or dress, but that she has a
will aud a power of impressing upon you the truth
of her stories, in spite of yourself. Being lavish
and generous to a fault, when she has money she
does not scruple as to the means by which she ob
tains it. Those who may be asked to loan a couple
of hundred to any Individual answering the above
description, better think twice before doing so.
BcrmtiKTKJiDKNT or Public Schoolh.?The cre
ation of this office has been urged upon the Coun
cils by Mayor Towers and ex-Mayors Lenox and
Maury; and the late Board of Trustees have, iu
four annual reports, also urged its necessity; yet
the Board of Aldermen has rejected the proposi
tion at throe different times during the last three
years. Home of tho honorable board, who have
heretofore been friends of the measure, are now
found voting in the nogatlve.
Brkad.?One of our City Fathers, who has de
clared himself opposed to coutiuued legislation
upon every subject in our City Councils, Monday
evening proposed In the Board of Aldermen the
following bill; which was referred to the Commit
tee on Police:
An act to Regulate the Weight and Quality of
Bread.
Be it enacted, (be., That from and after the
passage of this act, ull bread tuadu and offered
for sale in the City of Washington shall be manu
factured from sweet superfine or family flour, free ?
from adulteration or admixture.
Sue. 2. And be it enacted, That all bread shall
be sold by the pound aud ounces averdupois,
oiler it is baked; and every person engaged iu
the selling of bread shall be required to weigh the
same at the time of selling, or inform the purcha
ser of the number of ounces contained in the loaf
sold or offered for sale.
SfcC. 8. And be it enacted, That if auy pcraou
shall sell bread in violation of auy of the provisions
of this act, or if any bread sold shall be found to
contain a less number of ounces than it purported
to contain, every person so offending shall be sub
jected to a fine of one dollar for each and every
loaf sold or offered for sale.
Skc. 4. And be it enacted, That all previous
laws in relation to the weight, quality, or sulc of
bread, be and the same is hereby repealed.
An act like the above would be evidently fair
between the buyers and the sellers, and no honest
dealer ought to object to it.
Fifth Ward Market-house.?It is to be hoped
the committee to whom this matter is intrusted
will select tho location originally designated, viz:
the open space at the intersection of Pennsylvania
and North Carolina Avenues. If it be located at
this point, wo doubt not it will command a large
custom. It would be central and midway between
the Navy Yard and the Capitol.
We hope the general interests of the eastern por-.
tion of the city will be consulted in the location, so
that it may in reality prove to be a convenience
and a comfort to the large and growing population
cast of the Capitol.
Sprinq balance bcalks.?We are credibly in
formed that a bill will be introduced into the Board
of Common Council, probably at the next meeting,
making it obligatory upon all persons using a spring
balance to have it tested ^nd stamped by the sealer
of weights and measures ; and also making it the
duty of the market masters to examine weekly all
in use in the various market houses. Tliis, we
think, ought to be satisfactory to all concerned.
Arrival.?The Hon. Wm. Aiken, of .South
Carolina, member of Congress, we observe, is in
the city, and is staying at Brown's Hotel.
Tme Youno Catholic Fricsm 8oci*rv.?At a
recent meeting of this numerous society, Mr. Geo.
Savage introduced a resolution instructing the offi
cers to purchase only from Catholic tradesmen
such article* as the society has use for. We do
not know that it has boon finally considered.
