"Free Italy I" This, ng tlen, is the Repubioan's idea of freedom, bar r. -monarchy under Victor Emmanuel. The wit ilavery of white people, which the Republi- sie il- can and its gang have inflicted upon n, Louisiana of late years, is also called free e- dom by it, therefore we shall not quarrel Tm b with its prostitution of the term hi this sie connection. em The Pope has, it says, broken bread for with the Italian King, or, in other words. for [he received his money. This is an unqualified co de- slander, so mean and false that, though we ms, have no idea of the personality of its au- dii of thor, we must presume him to be an apos tel. tate. No'bne born a heretic would natural- lie re- ly attain to such a degree of malignity. The nu ted Pope has made a point of rejecting the l King's pecuniary offerings as the vilest pollution ever since the invasion of Rome, an and the slahder above mentioned is based, no doubt, on the fact that thd first of such offerings was actually paid into the trea- tw mlpt sury withoft his knowledge. But that pre- TI Ion tense of a foundation only increases the kn r I meanness of the misrepresentation. lng The rest of the article. is a pitiable and ite childish disregard of all geography and ein t history. It es Italy when it means Rome e. and the Papal States.

Italian usurpation, with a demonstration bi Cai of certain Italian citizens in favor of it. ried It must be remembered that this demon- he Mme, stration was only contemplated and never the really took place, so that the contrast of the Republican is totally pointless. The a n of supposed fact, however, is made an occa ten. sion on which to publish some very strange e' as well as very objectionable sentiments. The writer objects to protesting against l the action of the Italians because he sup ays poses.that it was in accordance with the B popular will and he adds, " It is our creed a nil that the people should be allowed to choose Irw their own rulers and their own govern oment." Truly that creed is beautifully ex of a emplified in the government of the South r by the Radical party. Oh, hypocrisy! cri- where is thy blush her.' He continues: rrow And still less is it allowable in this country aunt that freemen should protest in favor of e- C indW tablishing an obnoxionaus government in Rome, * when that government deliberately submnits a scheme by which it claims to be invested with i lens n power to dispsee of the allegiance of the peo- a hne. ple of the United 8tttes.r ythe When the editor of the Republicas was or the admitted into the confidence of Cardinal 'athe Antonclli we know not. But as it is im Sprobable that such was ever the case, the i tow- falsity of this asseertion, like the rest, is pa a ach tent on its very face. In trath the Pope P never dreamed of making such a pretension in regard to any people. There is a.higher inam moral/law which one may not disobey at o the behest of any government, and by m. N. which a subject may some times be ab Snew solved from allegiance to an impious and r lsts njust ruler. This all men concede, and ddnt Catholic say that the Pope is the infalli nenan ble expounder of that moral law. But he can only do this under fixed conditions lster. applicable in all ages and countries, not ac ntu cording to the interests of the moment. y, snd This infallibility in morals has, moreover, eotber nnothing whlatever to do with political con restly siderations, and any interference of the lie Pope on such grounds would be disregard ed. ect Ve suppose that the Republican, in at his making these illogical and untruthful at o. tacks upon the Catholio Church, is only . . e It is still almost aif-sen - tade of Pari to form a seote 9 as to its ehances of resstatsms.
