Mr.e Geram lastited salt aait the bioshop i the Court of Arches, As court is what Is left of the ecoleal astical jurisdition of the Primate of all England-it being the Prerogative Court of Canterbury; the aesteduss are delivered ito the name of the Arebbiabop, althougb the judge is asiapl lsmash, ad'b leae the bishop. Mr. Go peld the Supreme Court of Apalis for Anglicans decided in his favor, so that, since that decision baptismal regeneration has ceased to-be a dogma in the Church of England. As this celebrated oase was the frst of a series of similar ones since decided, it gave lians, both in England and America. he Bishop of Exeter called a Diocesan - Synod to a>irm that article of the Niceno Creed, " I acknowledge obe baptism for the re mission of sins." There was also a rotest published against holding the Synod, signed by fifty-four clergymen of the dio cese of Exeter; there were also immense meetings held at Martin's and at Free masons' Hall, at which petitions to her Majesty were agreed to and afterwards _resented by Lord Nelson, requesting her rajesty to order the revival of synodical functions in the Church of England and convening the ancient convoation of the Church. But the most important docu ment put forth on the oceasion was resolu tions published in the Oimes of March 19, 1850, signed by ten celebrated dignitaries of the Church of England, and some emi nent lawyers, the first name signed being H. E. Manning, M. A., Archdeacon of Chi chester; but the only effect of all these re mtonstrances wait the conversion of many ardent souls to the true Church. The court of last resort for Anglicans, in which all the celebrated cases from Gorham vs. the Bishop of Exeter, to that of the Colenso case in 1865, are heard and decided, is the Queen in Council, and not the House of Lords, as som-e otherwise well informed persons believe. By two statutes (2 and 3, Will. IV., c. 92, and 3 and 4, Will. IV., c. 41,) such an appeal is to be heard by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, and its sentence is final and definite, and not subject to further review. Its members are all laymen, and may belong to any imaginable creed, or be mere infidels, with only one exception; for the Lord Chancel ior (who in the Gorham case could not act as being a party) must not be a Catholic. The judgment of the Privy Council legal izing the heresies of the " Essays and Be views," and the unbelief of Bishop Colenso, was the occasion of Dr. Manning (now Archbishop of Westminster) writing his celebrated letter to Dr. Pusey on the " Workings of the Holy Spirit in the Church of England. D. P. . New Orleans, January 4, 1872. Joint Address of the State Catholie Total Absti nsnce Unions. JA/UARY 1, 1872. " New Year's Day" is noted as an auspi clous time to put away bad practices and begin a better course . scores in every com munity make resolutions, on that day, to give up habits of drunkenness, and lead lives of sobriety ; and it may be considered 1 a favorable time for a concerted effort on the part of the Catholic Total Abstinence Associations throughout the country, to in stitute needed improvements in their sys temr of organization, in order that member- 1 ship may be made more attractive and use- c ful to those who join them. c A sincere derire to entend the practice of I Temperance impels us, to urge the sev- I eral Catholic Total Abstinence Societies t throughout the country, to unite them- c selves in State Unions, preliminary to the t establishment of a National Union, devoted I Ir. to thie adai q f the Tempirance eau.se, the of our people from the evils of e, and the promo tin.of'thel i and well-being in the communit . . ee are asloes now flly no - ed.

This I s the Cardinal Grandison of Disraelis " Lo thalr"-Dr. Henry Edward Manning, Ro Sman Catholic Arhbibahop of Westminster, Sseessor in that ooice of the late Cardinal * Wiseman. It is no wonder that the Irishmen at the a meeting are enthusiastic about Archbishop , Manning. An Englishmsm of Englishmen, u with no drop of Irish blood in his veins, hlae is more Hibernian than the Hibernians themselves in hissympathies with Ireland. a A man of social position, of old family, of a the highest edeuation and the most refined a instincts, be would leave the Catkolic noblemen and at any time go down to his a Irish teetotallers at tihe East End of Lon don. He firmly believes that the salvation of England is yet to be accomplished through the influence of the religious de- ai votion which is at the bottom of the Irish ii nature, and which some of us call supersti- d, tion. He loveN his own country dearly, , hut turns away from-her present condition G of industrial prosperity to the days before dl the Reformation, when yet saints trod the di English soil, " In England there lies been q no-saints since the Reformation," he said na the other day, in sad, sweet tones, to one hi of wholly different opinions, who listened at with a mingling of amasment and reverence m No views that I have ever beard put Into as living words embodied to anything hike e at same extent the full claime and pretensions di of Ultramontanism. It it quite wonderful to sit and listen. One cannot but be im pressed by thq sweetuesa, tbh thoughtful- of ness, the dignity, I lad almost said the ah sanctity of the man who thus pours forth, I with a manner full of the most tranquil conviction, opinions which proclaim all modern progress a failure, and glorify the Roman priest or the Irish peasant as the th true herald and repository of light, liberty aG and regeneration to a sinking and degraded d" world.h Although a good deal of an ascetic, as t his emaciated face and figure would testify, foi he is nothing of a hermit. He mingles to ad a certain extent in society, he takes part in TI many public movements and he has wl doubtless given Mr. Disraeli ample oppor- bli tunity of studying his m$nner and beag tic I don't believe -Mi. Disraeli capable of un- H derstanding the profound devotion and seo single-minded sincerity of the man. A fle more singular, striking marvellous figure Cc does not stand out I Mtink, in our English th society. Everythig that an ordinary lei Englishman or American would regard as mu admirable and auspicious in the progress of Fr our eivilization, Dr. Manning calmly looks hil upon as lamentable and evil-osiened. cc What we call progress is tohis mind decay. laI What we call light is to him darkness. tw What we reverence as individual liberty Ir he deplores as spiritual slavery. Tile mere wl fact that a man gives reasons for his faith db seems shocking to this strangely-gifted Is apostle"of unconditional belief. TL gh to you were to accept on beaded knees ni-e- to ty-_ine of the decrees of Rome, you would of still be in his mind a heretle if you paused tin to consider as to the acceptance of the ban- sm dreth dogma. I have never heard fromr th; any other source anything-so clear, com- evi plete, pd astonishing asbis cordial accept- so anee or the uttermost claims of Rome; the In prostration of all reason and Judgment be- ge fore the supposed supernstaral attributes me of the Papal throne. In one of the finest h puasages ef his own writings be says: "My En love for Eland. begins with the England tin t 8 de. Saxon England, with all its Lot see to me saintly and beautl. c- E lana I barve always loved fa* lbugh maejetio, it became Sless Catholic, until the evil world broke off the light yoke the o-called Reformation.

When it we sa othe wiseof the murdered Arshbleop sotf " Paris that le was disposed to rrhet th e D introduction of the dogmat of lallbility, SArachbishop Manning came eagerly to the rescuee of is friends s memory, and as one, would vindicate a person unjustly aooused sof rime, he vindicated the dead Arobbish op from the atlPgm of having for a moment : dared to have an opinion of his own on sueh a subject. Of eounersr,Dr. MWnning [ were an ordinary theological devotee or fa natie, there would be nothing remarkable In all thls. But he is a man of the wide t culture, ofbhigh Intellectual gifts, of kesn and penetrating judgement in all ordinary affairs, rmarkableforb ehis close and logical argumeht, bhi persuasive ressenl, and for a genial, quiet kind of humoerwhich seems especially calculated to disholve so phistry by its action. He is an English gentleman, a man of the world; he was educated at Oxford with Arthur Pendenni dls and young Lord Magnus Charters; he l lives at York Place in the London of to day ; he drives down to the House of Com mons and talks polities in the lobby witit Gladstone and Lowe; he meets Disraeli at dinner parties, and is on friendly terms, I dare say, with Huxley and Herbert Spen- b cer; he reads the newspapers, and I make no doubt is now well eaquainted with the history of the gitation against Tammany in and Boss Tweed. I think such a tan is a a marvellous phenomenon In our age. It is s as If one of the medienval saints from the sh stained windows of a church should sad- s denly become infused with life and take a de part in all the ways of our present world. ac I can understand the lobg-abiding power of the Catholic Church when I remember a that I have beard and seen and talked with Henry Edward MIanning. Dr. Manling is not, I ru,,cy, very much ao of a political reformer. His iuclinations would probably be rather conservative so than otherwUse. He ti drawn toward to Gladstone and the' Liberal parry less by St distinct political afnity, of whilch there is so but little, than by his hope and belief that at through Gladstone something will be done D. for tbat Ireland which, to this Oxford scholar, is still the "sland of the saints." The Catholio members of Parliament, whether English or Irish, consult Arch- be bishop Manning eonstiatly upon all ques- lu tions conneeted with education or religion. Ire His parlor in York Place-is the frequent be scenes of conferencems whlch have their in- ha fluence upon the action of the House of inl Commons. He is a devoted upholder of it: the doettrne of total abetinence from intox- of biating drinks; and he is the only English- mi man of rel influenoa sad ability, exeept eli Francis Newman, who is in favor of pro hibitory legislation. He is the medium of communication between Rome and Eng- 1 land; the living link of connection be tween the English Catholic peer and the To Irish Catholic bricklayer. The position which he. o rpies Is at all evepta que. ti distinctive. There Is nobody else in Eng-mi land who-could set up the faintest elaim to to any such place6 It would be superfluous thi to remark that I do not expect the readers of the .alahy to have any sympathy with th the opinions, theological or political, of til such a man. But the man himself is wor- de thy of profound Interest, of study sad du even of admiration. He is the spirit, the an soul, the ideal of medieval faith embodied ho in the form of a living English scholar and dim gentleman. He representa and illustrates a va movement the most remarkasble, possibly ps the meet portentous, which has disrbed an England and the English Church sines the tn time of Wyclife.
