dlnneroftheking. Atlrsthis visitors weremost
y school-boys, -who pointed him outtoone ta
other, relating his numerous tricks; then came
little gird bringing him dainties and calling
to him with their sweet voices, and the old
bachelor on the third story also came to see
Spring, and would always stop to relate the
history of his dead canary. Good Father
Mark! how he enjoyed his pet's triumph.
Every day witnessed the progress of the
bird. All that he wished to' team. him was
understood and retained. The bullfinch forgot
his woodland songs to carol the air whistled
by his master. Such, a~Ltength, became the
celebrity of Spring, that Mark thought he
ought not to leave him any longer ih his poor
cago; he must have a dwelling worthy of his
visitors.
Our worthy tailor, therefore, ransacking
every corner of his money-drawer, started out
one flneday with every penny he possessed,
and soon returned in triumph with the prettiest
It was made of bars of wire delicately turned,
ornamented with glass beads and silver fll
agree, porcelain mangers atq-crystal troughs;
the emperor could have desired no better.
The door of this tiny palace was oilened, and
its future occupanwasnt was troduced. But alast
instead of appearing pleased with his new
home, Spring flew- hero and there with an
angry air, straiing himself against the bars
and endervoring to escape from his beautiful
prison.
"This home sickness will pass away after
awhile," said Mark to himeelf, to-morrow we
shall hear him singing his To Deaem of joy."
But the followng day and several others
passed, asd rna chrpwas heard. The exiled
ird remained on his perch silent and sad. In
vain his master increased hisallowanece of cake
and millet grass. Spring regarded all with a
languid eye. The bird with his head cast
down, feathers rauled, sad dull, languid eyes,
appeared pining away. Mark couldstndit no
longer. He opend the door of his Louvre, and
proaduced the old cage still hung with the
withabied chick-weed. On seeing it, theprison
ar aroused if-mself* he raised his wings
lew towards his o home, then datting on one
of the bar he suddenly uttered a lively cry.
His love for life seemed to have returned; with
familiar scenes he recalled his forgotten songs.
His voice was never so well modalated or so
sonorous; it filled the little chamber of the
ftailor. Singing one after another of his old
airs, he seemed to exhaust his melodies in the
fuliness of his joy. Wiser than many men, he
had refused opulence in order to insure a
paceful life and th humble asylum ; in his own
language. he sung those beautiful words of
Virgil:
"appy is the man who sleeps beneath the
roof where lie was born, and beholdcsthe ripen
-ing harvests ofhispatrimonial estate."
Sweet bird, thy wisdom often recurs to my
mind to enlighten and strengthen me. Ah !
that thou could'tt ilnpirt to every one thy love.
*.III cisy, ant. ie necessity of ltgleration!
Why is not thy joyous chant as it mounts to
heaven, understood by every passer by. It
seems to say: Confine your desires within the
limits of your possessions; it is moderation in
our wishles that mnake us rich ; ma,n rants but
little here below, and that little not long. That it
is that the carol'ng of Spring :has so often
spoken to my mind. But I hear his songs no
Wore: he is gone, never to eturu.
For some mouths past Father Marl's work
was diminiushing; and at length lie was with
out any. The poor tailor was obliged to accept
journeywork at some distance fromu his home.
He went to work at daybreak and did not re
turn until eve;in-e so that Spring conldl see
him but seldom. Who bird was proiahble grow
ing sad, for one day I met Mark uniler the
stairease with the cage in his hand. I saluted
Spring and congratulated my friend on having
so joyous a companion who supplied to hint the
place of a family and of society.
" At one time you imighthave saidso," replied
he. " While I 'orked at my needle day after
day, he chatted gaily with me, and at dinner I
enjoyed sweeter music than the greatest prin
ces. But now all is changed! Since I have
been going out to work, I leave-sw-early and
return so late that my pet is always asleep
when I see him. It isonly on Sunday that we
can enjoy each other's society. Thls cannot
continue, Monsieur. Spring is becoming sad
at being left so much alone, and, to tell the
truth, it is not the life for a singing bird - he
needs some one to listen to his songs anti to
respond to them; so I have made a great
resolution, I free my bullfinch !"
At these words his voice was husky with
emotion, and le leftme abruptly.
Poor Father Mark, may God remember his
self-devotion I If it is true that a cup of cold
water given to the poor will be rewarded in
the kingdom of heaven, I hope this sacrifice,
made even for the happiness of a bird, may be
remembered in favor of my good neighbor.

Doctor maintains his ground valiantly,asad his
latest demonstration thus ~winds up hispart of
the controversy:
We bring forward an additional eh1ý to
day, iaz : That wherever you meet witha re
gion of country that has been burned over and
-over again with the Ares of "Revivalism,"
there an almost utter and -ery general Indiffer
ence to religion eventtally sapeirvieni e
look not so much to the immediate results of
the revival system, Tn m--alin-ithii additional
charge ; they are deceptive. But we look to
the final feits. The whole system is a stupen
dous blunder. But even the immediateresulte
"ae not to Ake passed. over lightly. Take the
great revival of 18569-a6 in Ireland. What is
the testimony of Reev aae Nelson ia Presby
terian minister in Bi olst ! He fratnkly says:
"The revival was made to rest-for iterealityon
certain extraordinary eonversions,-which have
since proved false and wicked ; the.conasqunce
being an immensely increased iiiorality in
Ulster. Now," he says, " will Dr. McCorle meet
ns on this assertion, or put it to the test of sta
tistics  We know he will not; dare not. The
norality of the Presbyterian people has been
ruined by revivals." Such, my brethren, was
the immediate result, one of the revivalists
himself being the judge. Let me give you an
other eatract concerning that same revival; it
is this, viz : "Many of the earlier revivalists,
whose mental calibre could not withstand the
excitement of the movement, have found a per-.
manent home liilunatie asylums; while multi
tudes of others, piffed up'with spiritual pride,
have fallen into worsed sesesthan that of the
mind. Many who, thri ]e ago, were dis
tinguished as revivalist preaiTehi of the purest
and most sanctified kind, are now drunkards
thieves, and immoral livers; and one, to our
certain knowledge, is now lying in prison,
charged with being concerned in alate coward
ly and barbarous murder. Since the revival
began seduction has prevailed to aha extent
evser~~bewn .Rfore,as the large increase in the
number of illegitimate ebildren so fully preveea
Has drunkenness or immoraity decreased in
the district where it chiefly prevailed The
very contrary is the fact. Judged, therefore,
by Its results the revival movement of 1860
must be considered not as ' a refreshing stream
of God's grace,' as some have not hesitated to
profanely call it, but as a withering blight,
which has parched the ground whichit seemed
to refresh, and his left embind it fruits the full
bitterness of which will never be truly known
till the day of doom."
But I do not intend, in this sermon, to dwell
at all upon this point of the searing effect of
Protestant revivals. I merely allude to it, and'
return to one of the main charges, viz: That
wherever the fundamental principles of Pro
testantism have taken deep root in the mind of
a thooghtful people, there, after a number of
generations, infidelity prevlails, to a very gun
oral-to an alarming extent. The charge is that
the logica~i conclusion of the fiudameutal prin
tilles of Protestantism is Rationalism, and that
the historic issue in the case of Germany, Swit
zerlandl, America, and other Protestant lands,
substantiates the logical anticipation. You
percieve at once the seriousness of this indict
uimet. If it is true, then Protestantismis what
I have charged it to-be, a betesy. If it is true,
it is not a subjeet to be plrovoked about; it is a
nmattir to blagrieved ovec; for mulhitudes of
good Iaon have beent, anlld areidentified with the
system. If it is true, Protesiaotism sho!ld be
vuided by every oc who m oe l brother
man, and the causo of Our Blessed Saviour. Its
houses of worship should not be entered by the
sons and daughters of the Church. If it ts not
trite, then it is for Protestants to let us know
why, which they have essayed but failed to do
hitherto. If it is true, it is something you
ought to know, and not to turn aside from. If
it is true, it is criminal for the Christian to ig
nore it. It is too important to be pushed aside
because it is anll unpleasant subject.
If individuals will not hear the word the
world is hearing, and will hear, and will decide
the issue, there are two counts, then, in the in
dictment, which I dwell on this morning.
First, that, as a fact, infidelity prevails very
widely int lands which once were Protestant.
Secondly, that is because the logical issue of the
Protestant dogma is Rationalism. Let us con
sider the first count. Permit me tp read to you
a little Acconnt o fRcligion i Genera, Switterland.
It is written by a'Protestant minister', and, is
as follows, viz: " The statements made by Mr.
J. Wright, a Unitarian, are, alas, too true, viz:
That-thesuccessorsof the very magistrates who
condemned 'Servetus, of the pastors who ex
communicated him as the denier of the Trinity,
now themselves unite in rejecting that doc
trine! The faith of the great Churches of Ge
neva is Unitarianism. The system of John
Calvin is almost extinct in the town where he
was once the spiritual tyrant. There are be
lievers in the divinity of our Blessed Lord Jesus
existing in Geneva, it is true, who are divided
into several-parties , but the National Church
of Geneva is Unitarian. The number of inhab
itants in Geneva amounts to about 64,000;
among them are about 40,000 Unitarians, 18,000
Roman Catholics, and--the miserable balance
are left to Protestant Triuitsrianism."
We all know how things have turned out
after three centuries of Protestantism in Ger
many. There is no tced.of testilmony oni that
point. We all know haiov it is ini New EaiIfatnd,
and wherever New l:glaiud emnigrati.-, has

De. BgLLOws AND Ta ITrxa Pars.
The Rev. blower, after writing a series of let
ters from Europe, in which he dealt largely in
slanders against the church generally, has sent
a communication to the London Sime., in which
he particularly traduce the Irish priesthood.
A French paper thus alludes to this last per
formance :
The Rev. WV. Bellows hasd published, in the
Lohdon Times, a letter on the Irish in America.
The reputation of the Rev. Doctor, and the
wide circulation of the imes, have given to
this letter an importance it byno means merits.
The English doctor, under the influence of his
anti-Catholic prejudices, presents a picture o
priests which is anything but true. He statfs
that Irishl priests exercise over their flockse a
absolute influence even on political questions;
that eleciions are discussed from the pulpits,
and the l4t people vote according to the die
tation of thoer.dergy. This is uttt'ly false,
especially nai-egards the Uhited Syntes. The
people esteedi and revere- their pidst, buecause
he is worthy-bof:iespectd.ald veneration-bunt
the Rev. doctor'knows full welltthat the lCath
olie Church in America doe not mingle in
polities so long, at least, the government
ablsta;,s from interfering fith the liberty of
worship, which is the ease the present time.
Dr. Bellows gratuitoly calumniates the
Catholic.clergy. He ld have taken eoun
sel of his confreres in the United States. They
would have inform him that the great influ
ence of the Catholi clergy and the universal
respect which is e erywhere paid to them. are
ow11ing, in a gremeasure, to the fact that they
invariably keepaloof from political agitations.
During the w Catholic priests delivered no
harangues ~ arouse public enthusiasm. So
universally/did they abstain from playing the
political' magogue, that they were inmoct de
nounced"4s rebels, While to-day their prudent
reserve/is a subject of universal applause.
Whether a Democrat or a Republican concerned
themo but little; they only sought to save
soels, to train up children on Christian prin
citles, to give counsel and assistance to all who
approached them, and, like their Divine Mas
ter, spend their lives in doing good.
The Englishl doctor has mistaken the door;
hie has taken the Protestant tenmple for a Cath
olic church. In such a temple religion, in
point of fact, is altogether political, alnd tihe
everertdl ministers seem never to become tired
ih dislcussing the mnost arduous taid compulicated

Are Protestant Goeer*neamts Liberal --It is very
common for Protestants to contrast Catholic
and Protestant Governments-boasting of the
liberality of the former. Norway is pre-emi
nently Protestant, but its liberality is more
than quesIionable, for it does not accord equal
rights even to Protestant dissenters from the
State Church; and Catholics ate still more un
justly dealt with. Read the following :

We called upon the military commandant-an
Irishman, who occupies a part of the palace of
the ex-King of Westphalia. Our reception by
him was gentlemanly, cordial. and dignified.
I think the Irish are, after all, the best man
nered people in the world. They are found in
every country as adventerdeafor honor, and
change neither in character por manners.
They follow foreign fashions, ind acquire a
foreign-anguage; nbut in the first they retain
their heart and in the latter their brogue.
They are Irishmen alwys. Count N- is high
in the favor of the Emperor, has the commis
sion of a field-mahal, and is married to a
Neapolitan princess, a most accomplished and
lovely woman, and related to most of the royal
