Maw o~Ana. sIoAnr. APaL . s 7n. msZ'rps labs. The follow;ig extract is from an article In the Cathoeli World, for April, being a tmaslation from the German. It is ably written, and replete with suggestive thought. We recommend it to the perusal Souear readers: The Franco-Prusilan war of 3870 is one of the most important events in the history of Europe. The prostration of France is no indication that she will never-rise again, ir i® 1807 Prussia was in a worse condl ieon than France is now. In 1815, and antil the past few years, Prussia was last ia the list of the great powers, though now hel is the first. France, then, in a few years may rise again to her full power. There are no more fresh, uneivilised rases to come ibto Europe to take the place of those which are now said to be decaying. We have shown that liberalism has reached its acme, been fond wanting, and is dying. Its efforts in Italy, Spain. Germany Vienna and Peath are -but the last convulsions of an expiring system. The natural child of e libersalism-ociallsm-must also disappear = before the eommon sense of mankind. c What remains t Will there be in Europe I the alternate anarehy and despotism of the Central American republics without any t end Must-we despar of Europe's fature mo, a thousad times no I We look to the fature with hope and consolation. Common sense and religion will win the a day; Christianity has still the regenerating c power which she showed in civilizing the c barbarians. Christianity has been th j principle of national life since the Redeemer r established it as a world religion. The a spiritual life must be renovated by truth L and morality. Christianity is both. We 1 Christians, hope, therefore, for the conver- c sion of the popular mind; we begin even - -ow to perceive signs of regeneration, reno- a vation, renewed energy and vigor in mental t convictions and civic virtues. t God's punishments are proofs of his t mercy. He chastises to convert. The first a punishment of France, in 1789, was not t enough to teach her to repent. Louis o XVlIi. came to the throne a freethinker ti instead of a Christian. The prostrate armies of Metz and Sedan are the result of I corrupting and enervating infidelity. God Ii chastises ambition and pride in nations as " well as in individuals. The republic has c shown itself incapable, because it possess- c ed neither honor, principle nor religion. c The victories of Prussia are a blessing of a God for France. The Prussian army is but E the instrument which God has used to c punish a culprit nation-a revolutionary, irreliglons and frivolous system of govern- E meat. Victorious Germany, too, will be C taught to reflect when it sees the blood of its thousands of slaughtered sons, and the r miaeries which the war has entailed on its r ence happy families. Wars teach unruly nations to reflect. Will the present war I suelee to humble Europe, and cause her to r redsect We know not; but God will send f other chastisements if this one avails noth ing. Dark clouds are already rising in the d east, which may soon burst over Austria c md Germany. The rod of God's anger will a be felt by Austria again, for her lessons of 1859 and 1866 have been forgotten. They have only made her throw herself more 2 ;?eadly into the arms of the devil. In Italy Ii the secret societies will yet avenge on the C house of-Savoy the blood of the defenders w of the Vicar of Christ. - But the German Empire has been re- cc established under a Prussian Emperor. h Yes, but this is only an episode in the ac- C tual crisis- of the world. A Protestant j, Emperor of Germany is entirely different ti from a German Emperor. The old German as Emperors represented the idea of Christian ti monarchy; the Protestant Emperor in t Berlin represents modern Cesarism. His ib Empire cannot last long, for history tells as id that empires of sudden and accidental re growth lose rapidly the power which they B as rapidly acquired. But is not Prussia's Is triumph the triumph of Protestantism in Europe? Such a question is easily an- d, aswered. Protestantism as a positive reli- C, glon no longer exists in Prussia or else- at where; and Protestantism as a negation nI exists everywhere, perhaps more in some L Catholic lands than in Prussia. On the battlefields of Woerth and Gravelotte the go Catholic Church was not represented by L France and Lutheranism by Prussia. Ca- cm thoic Bavarians, Westphalians and Rhine- 01 landers fought for Prussia, and would be b, astonished to hear that they were fighting for heresy. Priests and Sisters of Charity d, accompanied them to battle. Who, on the ti other hand, would call the Turcoe Catho- ti lies Or the French officers, who never F beard mass and who curtailed the number I of Catholic chaplains to the minimum ? 0 Were the French soldiers, who drilled on Sanday instead of going to church, on p whose barracks, in some cases, was written, m " No admission for policemen, dogs or tl priests l"-were they the Catholic cham- b pions? No, the Christian soldier first ap- it peared, in this war, with Charette and 4 Cathelinean in the Loise army, demoralized t, and destroyed, however, by the mad-cap g radical, Gambetta, and his infidel associates. ii In fact, the Prussian army was more Ca- ti tholic than the French. The latter must ti be won back to religion from the enerva- I ting influences of Freemasoory and Vol tarianism before it can regain its prestige. The only hope for France is in her zealous d clergy, in the vigor of the old Catholic . provinces, and in her humiliations, which C ought to bring repentance. ' The resulting of Catholic renovation is v beard all over Europe. The rising genera- a tion will bring' Italy back to tIme Church. fi The spirit of the Tyrol and of Westphmalia ti is spreading through Germany. The Ultra- b montanes in Saxony, Bohemia, Steyermark, a bshow the energy of this renovation. The t peasantry of Austria and of a large portion t of Germany are still nocorrupted. Hion- a gary is steadfast in the faith. The seizure t of Rome by the Sardinian robbers has roused the Catholic heart of the world and 1 helped on the cause of regeneration. Where the Catholic faith was supposed to ' be crushed, lo i it has raised its head de- t uantly. The deceived nations want peace, free- 1 dom, order and authority. These blessings infidelity and liberalisu have taken away. The people are beginning to see that the old, Set ever young Apostolic Church alone a can guarantee them. They will turn to Rome, where lives the Vicar of Him who 1 said, "' am the way, the truth aid the ( life ; to Rome freed again from the bar barians; to Rome become Roman agaio I vwhen it has ceased to be Sardinian; to i-; Io~ I ....... Rome will the people look A jese-and order. It is' Bome that td1 a that Christ is Lord of tbhe icrld' ei eon quers, that He gov.er. Thesal do minion of Christ will ain be establisahed. We shall se agSin Christian States founded a on Christian prineiplesandtradltaolawLith s Chrisln laows andrulers. Whether these rulers will be kings or presldents we know not, but they will in either cas eonsldep themselves as mere delegates of Jesus Christ, and of his people, not as Byantine despots or representatves of mob txnaen. They will understand that statesmanshi does not Consist in giving license to the wicked and forglin chains for the good. We shall have Chtasttan schools, Christian universities, Christian statesmen. Ye lib erals in name, well may l grow pale The Ibfuture of the world ongs to the prinlples of the Syllabs, rand this future Is not far of. We conclude with the words of Count de Maistre: "In the year 1789 the rights of man were proclaimed; in the year 1889 man will proclaim the rights of God." The las'rd Day not the Sabbath. That the Lord's day is not the Sabbath, says the Catholic Advocate, but, its nucces sor, a separate, though kindred institution, resting on distinct christian grounds, is evident from the dissimilar nature of the leading idea by which the observance of the two days is characterised. The essen tial feature in the Mosaic Sabbath is rest; in the Lord's day, it Isprayer. The lawoof Moses does not prescribe prayer or the reading of the Scriptures on the Sabbath, and in fact this higher and more religions observance of the day came into existence 1 only later, when the worship of the syna gogue had become general. Christ himself repeatedly attacks the narrow and materi al significance which the Jews give to the Sabbath ; plainly foreshadowing that the 4 holiday of the Christian religion was to be I of a more spiritual and elevated nature. The Thalanudists, carrying out the domi nant idea of the Mosaic Sabbath, declare that on that day it is unlawful to tie or un tie p knot, to sew two stitches, to write two lines, to put out the ire, and going still further they afirm that it is forbidden I to take an emetic on the Sabbath, to pare a or bite offone's finger.nails, to pluck out a the hair of the bead or beard. This reminds us of the time when the 1 Puritans of New England enacted such I laws as the following: " No one shall run on the Sabbath day, q or walk in his garden, or elsewhere, ex cept reverently to and from meeting. No one shall travel, cook victuals, make beds, sweep house, cut hair or shave, on the Sabbath day. No woman shall kiss her child on the Sabbath day." The Puritanic and Protestant idea of the t Sabbath is evidently of Jewish and not of t Christian origin. Even servile work on the Lord's day was not forbidden daring the first three centu ries of the Christian era. The only observance of the day, of which intimation is given in the New Testament, relates to public worship and not to rest f from labor of any kind. Tertullian, indeed, mentions in an inci dental way, that Christians rest from work on Sunday, but the other writers of the irst ages speak merely of pablic worship and a prayer on the Lords a day. Pliny the Younger, in his letters to the Emperor J Trajan, does not speak of rest from labor. c In describing the manner in which the e Christians keep the Sunday. We meet t with no positive laws concerning the ob servance of the Lord's day until the fourth century. The Synod of Laodiceas, (A. D. t 361) forbids Christians to work on Sunday. ti Constantine promulgated a law suspending F judicial proceedings and servile work on el that day. Valentinian confirmed this law . and added a clause prohibiting the collec- h tion of debts on Sunday. The history of the observance of the Lord's day, there tbre, proves that the primitive and leading t( idea in its celebration is that of prayer and religious worship, and consequent and sub- Is servient to this is the idea of rest from n labor. B The early Christians assembled on Sun- c day to assist at the sacrifice of the Mass, as Catholics do now, and this was then, as it a still is in the Church, the great and domi nant feature in the observance of the t Lord's day. P Protestantism, rejecting the great Sacri- o0 rice of the New Law, which gave to the ti Lord's day its peculiar and Christian signi- v cance, was logically led to identify the day of the Lord Jesus with the old Jewish Sab- F bath. P Even Protestants are beginn'ng to un derstand, however, that the Sunday is not h the Sabbath. The distinction between the d two days is very well expressed by the late S F. W. Robertson, an Episcopalian, in his s sermon "On the Religious Non-observance P of the Sabbath." No one, I believe, who would read St. v Paul's own writings, with unprejudiced mind, could fail to come to the conelusion v that he considered the Sabbath abrogated 0 by Christianity. Not merely modified in cC its stringency, but totally repealed, * ti for the Lord's day sprung, nut out of a f transference of the Jewish Sabbath fromn tl Saturday to Sunday, but rather out of the idea of making the week an imitation of t the life of Christ. With the early Chris tians, tile great conception was that of fol lowing their crucified and risen Lord; they L set, as it were, the clock of time to the epochs of history. Friday represented the death, in which all Christians daily die d and Sunday the Resurrection, in which all Christians daily rise to higher life. Care fally distinguish this, the true historical t view of the origin of the Lord's day, from a mere transference of a Jewish Sabbath I from one day to another. For St. Paul's teaching is distinct and clear, that the Sab- I bath is annulled; and to urge the observ ance of the day as indispensable to salva tion was, according to him, to Judaize-to i turn again to the weak and beggarly ele- 1 ments, whereunto they desired to be in bondage. And also by Lecky, (European Morals, Vol. II, p. 258): "The celebration of the first day of the I week, in commemoration of the resurrec- I tion, and as a period of religious exercises, dates from the earliest age of tile church. The Christian festival was carefully dis- i tinguished from the Jewish Sabbath, with I whIctm it never appears to be confounded till the close of the sixteenth century; but i some Jewish converts who censidered the 1 Jewish law to be still in force, observed both days. In general, however, the Christian festival alone was observed, and ithe Jewish Sabbathical obligation, as St. I Paul most explicitly affirms, no longer reat ed upon Christians." Roua, March II. -Bom and .,raee. The Omeerpaor atoeNeo. of Milan, one of the best lnfIored of the Catholic organs i of Italste that a seeret artlale exists Si the of Peace between France and Pruassla, by . ich'e $bo former requires a r pldg of nn e Confederation . in otow ,uroras.: nl, should France de sire to, etero the emporal Power by a second expedition, and probably in con Junction with Bamvrian Austria. What *oever truth may be contained in this asser Ston, ,i is quite oertain that the arrival of the new French Ambassador is looked on with the greatest uneDsiness by the Liber ale in Italy, apd especially by the men in S8bm and Aesfas.-Austria has marn taied silenoe so har on the Roman ques tion, but an nnderstaadleg-.is believed to exist between Bordeaux and Vienna on the matter. The Viennese deputation to the Pope arrived on Thursday evening and was presented to him yeeterday. A number of the Roman nobles went to the railway to meet the deputation. All these circumstances contribute to intensify the apprehensions of the Italian Government, which also stades ia the greatest dread of French RBed Republicans. The Cataholie Popur la ower.-Visconti Venosta-anxious as a last chance--is do log all that is possible to transfer the Capi taI before the summer, in order that the logic of accomplished facts may plead for it with the Powers. Once effected, he cal culates on their reconciling themselves to it. The Quirinal.-The usual Sunday recep tion took place there, but was only attend ed by three Roman ladies, the rest of the society being either Russian or of the Ro man middle olass. Princess Margherita's circlenarrows daily, and she is said to complain bitterly of her position. The beat class even of English Protestants still, I am happy to say, continue to avoid the reception, and no Austrian, Bavarian or Spaniard of rank.is, I-need not add, ever seen there. Prince Umberto left Rome yesterday on a hunting party at Venafro, in the Kingdom of Naples. Her Britannic Majesty's Consul is said to have been among the recent guests at the Quirinal, and the Vice-Consul has (on the authority of the Nuova Ronma) been decorated by Victor Emmanuel; for what service to the Roman Revolution is not stated, but Eng lish and irish Catholics have a right to in quire. Impiety. - Caricatures of the Pope abound. The last is "the flight to Corsica," a brutal and blasphemous parody on the hight of the Holy Family into Egypt. Such things would be sconted in Protestant Eng land or Germany. Another caricature en titled, "After the Suppression," represents the religions of Rome of both sexes camp ing as " Zingari" on the Piazza San Pie tro. I send both prints, as an example of what is being done to educate the people. There are many others much worse, which I only know by hearsay. Padre Curci is now preaching at a Triduo of Reparation for the recent horrible outrageson religion, and the Church of St. Andrea delle Fratte is too small to hold the faithful who flock to hear him and to protest by their pres ences againste imp:eties .they have wit. nessed. It is to be hoped they will do something more than pray and protest, for the evil has reached a pitch perfectly in credible. At Poggio the "Liberals" cel ebrated the Carnival by a mock funeral, 1 the Pope being represented by a large pig, with a priest's vestments and a tiara. It is r becoming daily more and more clear that c the Italian Government is the instigator or c the accomplice of the outrages on the Holy a Father, and that we can look for nothing a else from it. Catholics must take the mat- I ter into their own hands if they mean to t have redress. t Subiaoo.-A great pilgrimage took place t to Sagro Speco on the 25th of February, E for the intentions of the Holy Father. No t less than 8000 persons belonging to the neighboring villages were present. The Bishop of Subiaco celebrated Mass in the a cell of St. Benedict, and the population, who area most devout and loyal race of t peasantry, followed him to the door of the Monastery, and before dispersing raised the cry of " Viva San Benedetto!" " Viva Pio IX. Papa Re!" They were so numer :ns and so resolute that the Piedmontese troops thought it wisest to let them alone. The reaction is very strong throughout the Valleys of Subiaoo, Guercino, Alatri and Ferentino, and indeed throughout the provinces of Sabina and Frosinone. Austria at Rome.-The event of the week has been the reception of the Austrian deputation, headed by the Altgrave of Soims, and comprising at least fifty noble and princely subjects of the Apostolic Em pire. The Pope a reply to the address is 1 the most important feature of the inter view: "In the midst of the impiety and per versity of our age, which tends to the I overthrow of all established institutions, it cannot be otherwise than a great consola tion to me to witness the sentiments-of af fection and loyalty which are manifesting I themselves from every part of the world. It is this which gives me strength to sustain the war which is waged, either in malice or in blindness, against our holy religion anud against the See of the Vicar of Chbist. We have seen one throne fall. another nearer still shaken to its base. The storm will in crease, but it will also retreat; in what day, or hour, or time, I know not, but the day will assuredly come when the Lord will speak to the stormy waters and will bid thmem to stay their course- Tsque hoc et non ultra. Ilic confri nes tumetes fluctus tues. I know, nevertheless, that God in His works, is accustomed to make use-of the hands of mankind. Order will be restored only when those who are seated on the thrones of the world hIave understood that it is impossible tlhat those thrones should be maintained with the excessive liberty of the press and the general license of tihe present day. Thley must be inevitbly drawn into thie current of revutointon-I Er'dimini qlui judicatis Iterarsa. I well know that your Emperorsdlsires, from the 1 bottom of his heart, the triumph of religion and of the Chlrim i; he has proved, by uany actione4uriug my own Pontificate, that bee-lthe worthy descendant of the 1 family -hicll has so often protected the rights of thie Holy See. When yon return to your own country, tell him that the Pope I bears him thie strongest affection, that lihe Sprays for him and for his family, and that he trusts tlhat thie sentiments of his heart may bear fruit in action. I bless thile Im perial House, I bless all of you, your fami lies, those whom you represent, and all the atholics of the lHoly Roman Empire. I pray God ht this easlng may acom pany you on your bhoe journey, may fol low you through life, and may also beo consolation to you in the hoar of death, bthat you may enter Into the glory of God. s Be ndictfo Dot," etc. h.Zams and Boso.-M. de Coauelfles ar i rived on Monday, not as Ambassador-a i dignity which -appears to be reserved for M. Cochin--bt an semi-officlal capacity. He has been received by the Pope more than once sinee his irrival, and consider able importance must be attached to his presence, as it is certal hebe will enlighten the Government of Bordeaux on the real ties of the situation. M. Cochin will probably arrive next week in Rome, and will, I am informed, receive a magnificent and most cordial reception. Te Pope and Prssia.--The Holy Father has done all in his power to abate the iniquitous conditions of peace between France and Prussia. He appears to have charged the Catholic delegates of Northern SGermany with a message to this effect, and Count 8obomberger seems to have been the person who updertook this delicate and most Christian mission. As I have already informed you, if there have ever been any hopes -of help from Prussia, they seem to be completely at an end, and the Catholics of Rome have the good sense to turn to France and Austria as the only recognised defenders the Holy See has ever had, or can look to in the future in an official capacity. Tihe Oonsistory-The Pope held a Consis tory on Monday, the 6th inst., when the Sees of Agen,Southwark,Raveuna, and Fer rara, with several others is partibm, were filled up, but no public notice could be giv en to the (Cardinals, who were merely re quested to repair to the Vatican at a given hour, as the Pope desired to see them on Church affairs. The Emeutea-The papers which I have sent you will show your readers how ut terly unprovoked were the riots which dis graced Rome yesterday and day before. The sermons of Padre Tommasi, on Thurs day and Friday at the Gesu were so utter ly devoid of all political allusions, even on the showing of the Liberal papers, the Liberta and Nuova Born - that nothing save a foregone purpos o insulting the Catholic population of Roude could account for the shameful scenes of yesterday. Pa dre Tommasi's Lentei discourses have been, ever since Ash Wednesday, confined strictly to moral and religious matters. Not a single word could be commented on as betraying political animus, and those of the last two days have been consecrated to as explanation of the Sacrament of Penance. Tablet. It certainly speaks well for the Irish laboring class that amid the dirt, discom fort, poverty and general misery of their existence, the parity of their women shines out brightly. In a note to the appendix to the fourth report of the Agriculture Com mission, just issued, will be found some striking evidence on this point. Mr. Nicol Reid, a Scotch Presbyterian and volunteer bailie of Raploch, a village just outside of Stirling, chiefly inhabited by Irish settlers in Scotland, gives an interesting sketch of the character and habits of this community. He says: There is a colony of Irish here and has been for about twenty years. They live in very poor houses and have very little fur niture; but they pay small rents, and some of them pay no rent. When they first came here they used to make great rows amongstthemselves, and were very trouble some. A good many were taken up by the police and fined and that quieted them ; they do not like osing their money, so if they make a row I just threaten them with the police and they are quiet directly. About the beginning of May they go with their families to the bark peeling, and lock up their houses, nailing a board across the door. They stay out about two months and sleep in wooden sheds, lying together as thick as bees, but there is no immorali ty among them; indeed, they just behave to each other like wheen children, you would think they hadn't the same notions as other folk. I have only known two or at most three Irish girls go wrong, and it was always with Scotchmeu. When they go to the bark-peeling they frequently leave their savings-bank books with me, and a good many have them. I have one book with £40 to the good on it now in my house. The Jesuits at Metz, says the Bien, Pub. lic, are seventy-five in number, who are employed in educating and instructing about 500 students. 350 'of these are boarders. The College of St. Clement, which is under tLeir direction, is oneqf the most important in all France. When the war broke out they-lost no time in sending their pupils home, and offered their es tablishment, together with the whole of their staff, for the purpose of an ambu lance; accordingly, since the 14th of An gust up to the beginning of December, they have nursed Opwards of 500 wounded men under their own roof. Mloreover, many of them have been serving day and night in thie ambulances and hospitals of tihe city. Within the walls of their own college they devoted themselves exclusively to the care of the sick. They prepared the food and the medicines, kept the beds and rooms clean, dressed and cleansed thie wounds of the sufferers, performed the most loath some offices for them, and two of- them kept watch all through the night in their sick-rooms during the whloleof the time above-mentioned. Both iofllicers and pri vates, touched by saneu zeal and devoted ness, presented lhIt good Fathers with an address expressive of their gratitude, and signed b~y'ill the officers and all the com monjoldiers who had been cared for at St. Clement. It was addressed to the rector of the college, and appeared in the Belgian newspapers. Not satisfied with this, they resolved to set up in the church belonging to the college a monument on which should be engraved the expression of their grati tude, and they handed to the rector tihe plan of the monument together with the sum of money which was required to erect it. Nor was this graceful ackLowledgment undeserved, for no fewer than twenty-four of thie Fathers and Brothers fell ill of small-pox, typhus fever and dysentery. Four of them died, and one is at the pres eat moment so ill as to be beyond hope of recovery. The sight of a drunkard is a better ser mon against that vice than the best that ever was published on that subject. •O "i3~~~~ ... . ...: . INSURANCE COMPANIES. NEW ORLANS INSURANCE ASSOIA STION.
