mwi OLU . SUNDAY MARCH 54I. Is,. rZTTU rox 1r W TOr.C Nsw YORK, March 13, 1872. To the Editor of Morintg 8tar In an immense and populous city like thisl with over a half million of Roman Catholics, the eternal salvation of whose souls is endangered with imminent peril, because of the numberless temptations in the most seductive aspect, to which they are exposed and subjected, the advent of the Lenten season amongst us must neces sarily produce and possess a transcendent interest. None will attempt to deny the vital need of the soul'sawakening from the lethargic torpor of sin, In which, through an abandonment of the laws of virtue, it may have almost fatally slumbered, at any time; but In a time so fraught with induce ments as this, there are peculiar reasons * why those whose misfortune it may have been to shrink from the influence of Divine grace, and so transgress, should avail them selves of the invitation of lingering grace and make a more eager effort to divest themselves of the hateful load of their ini quities and seek restoration to that for feited by their own dereliction, by their own volition. Without any -desire to imply that even the slightest modicum of censure is due to the past, I can, without any restraint, assert that our pulpits, from which words of Divine wisdom incessantly flow,have never presented before an array of preachers grander and more acceptable. Profound in discursive lore, exhaustive in every form of dissertation, and easily intelligible to every capacity, their exhortation and explanation of Christian doctrine, their defence of Ca tholic principles end tenets, fail not to at tract the attention of an ordinarily too superficial world. Protestant and Catholic come in attentive throngs, to listen and be edified by the explanation of beautiful truths of Catholic teaching, never properly understood, never, perhaps, heard of be fore. The fame of our expounders has reached all classes of society, as is mani fested by the surging masses which in vain frequently seek ingress to churches filled to repletion already. Let us endeavor to force an entrance into one of these, singularly attractive by reason of the forensic repute of the distinguished divine, whose matchless eloquence has per meated all the civilized centres of the old world. We are fortunate enough to gain admission, and see VERI RiW. THOMAS N. DURKE, of the " Illustrious Order of Preachers," a monk whose fine features are partially shrouded by the cowl of St. Dominic. He is sojourning for a brief period, previous to his departure for Europe, whence he came a few weeks ago, on business connected with the pious brotherhood, of which he is so noble an ornament. Many of your read ers, no doubt, who have been secular enough to have read Disraeli's "Lothair," will re collect his brilliant description of the pow. erfal oratory of Cateby-Monseignor Ca pel-as was heard in the splendid basilica of the Piazza del Popolo, in the city of Rome, during the Lenten season, where he was wont to address the English-speaking tourists and residents, who were drawn thither by the grandeur of the ceremonies or, it may be, from tile warmth of their own devotion. Numerous and oftentimes of high social distinction were tile converts made by the profound impressions created upon hearing this eminent priest, until the time when he was withdrawn by Archbishop Manning, whose jurisdiction -extended to him. To him, was chosen to succeed Very Rev."Tom" Burke, as he is familiarly called. Tall, commanding, and of stately mein, he possesses every attribute calculated to win admiration, and this feeling is increased when we become cognizant of his marvel ous powers. In the Church of St Vincent Ferres, to which we wended our way, we will be well repaid for every disadvantage to which we may have been suljected, to hIearing' a man whose influence over an audience is almost unaccount4ble. Those whose good luck it was to havb heard him, within the shadow of St. Peter's, in the Eternal City, wil concur with your corre spondent in expressing the indescribable satisfaction then produced. Precious are the treasures of wisdom and eloquence combined which have fallen from the mouths of our pastors time after time, but never before, and I speak the prevailing sentiment of our people and city, have we heard or witnessed anything like the sensa tion which the wonderfully-endowed utter ances, dropping as priceless pearls from his lips, produce. Every linenament in his fea tures, every member of his body is preg nant with a gesture, which is as expressive as imperial. Ilis diction is felicitous to a degree rarely attained, yet within the com prehension of all. Every evening but Sat urday, during the week the multitudes of every sect and of all ranks in our commu nity, dock to hear instruction imparted, which reproduces the scenes pictured by Lacordatre, latisbonne and other mighty intellects itnspired by the Church of Christ. Tire daily press love to iepict-from inter easted motives likely, for they are infidel or hostile to our religion-the incidents trans piring in connection with the eermons of the "gifttd Catlholic friar," as they ate pleased to call him. Good results have already attended hIis efforts, conversions are numerous, and sinners are bei.ng recon ciled to their God, whose lives notoriouely were steeped in crime and degrading prac tices of the basest nature. DEDICATION OF A NEW CIIL'I:'tII. On Sunday last tihe new church of tile Dominican Fathers was dedicated with the usual ceremonies by Archbishop McClos key. This house of Divineoo worship is in one of the most beautiful and most eligible locations in the city, situate on a rising ele vation contiguous to Central Park. A little over a year ago a rode shed alone protected from the burning sun of summer time and dreary rain and snow of the winter the lit tle congregation that assembled to partici pate at the celebration of the Holy Mys teries, and formed, as it were, the nucleus around which gathered the many now seek ing admission to the nobler, graoder, ec elesiatictal pile, which patient devotion, untirilng energy and well-directed zeal on thle paR t of the good mlonksu have reared to I thl|e scrvic,, I-Imar aad glory of the Most Ilhgh (;Godt.

THe NUN OF KENMAUK. At the residence of Hon. William E. Robinson, late member of Congress, a de lightful reception was given to the officers of St. Patrick's mutual alliance a few evenings ago on the occasion of the.arrival from Ireland of a bBautiful green flag of the most precious jmaterial, the scroll and devices belng the handiwork of the "Noun of Kenmare, whose works, historical, re ligious and imaginative mark a genius of the vfry highest order. Mr. Robinson had leetured several times in this city and suburbs for the benefit of the convent in which this young lady resides and upon all ocessions was assisted by the assoeliation above alluded to generously, and to show her sense of gratitude for the favors re ceived she has forwarded this exquisitely adorned banner, together with several copies of her various literary productions to be presented to those who have so nobly aided the cause she loves on Wednes day next at Cooper's Institute, in order that the flag may be borne in the proces sion on ST. PATRICK'S DAY, for which much preparation is making. It was supposed that the usual parade would, in consequence of graver reasons, be omit ted this" season, but the continued and elaborate measures employed to thwart the designs of those not favoring street dis plays, does not warrant us in saying that the "turnout" will not be as imposing and demonstrative as on previous times. The Irish element is so large in this city and the means of gratifying their desires so easily attainable that anything proposed by themn is usually attended with success. They love display and it is fair to presume in this instance their wooing will not be in vain. - I. M. The Grand Jury. That the present grand jury, of which Mr. E. Booth is the foreman, is one of the most efficient and intelligent that has ever examined into the affairs of this communi ty, is universally acknowledged. From the report presented on the 18th, we make the following extracts referring to the Catholic institutions of the city : Female orphan asylum, corner of Clio and Camp, under the wise care of Sister Mary Margaret. With 180 orphans, and depending exclusively upon the charitable for support, it is not to be wondered at that the neglect of a Legislature distinguished for its munificence to itself to make any appropriation for the charities of this par ish should be severely felt by this asylum. Deprived of this much needed aid, and with flour at $10 to $12 per barrel, they have been obliged to economize strictly in everl respect, and to substitute some coarser descriptions of food to take the place of flour to some extent. This is also true of other asylums hereafter named and from the same cause. The Grand Jury regret exceedingly" that the State's econo mies should have taken this direction. The modest claims of the orphans are nearly equal to the necessity of. a four million dollar State-House, or an equally import ant and equally needed three million dol lar ditch-digging company. The asylum is recommended to the consideration of all. Everything is perfect there-health, clean linese and order. St. Vincent's Female Orphan Asylum, corner of Magazine and Race streets. Sis ter Mary Agnes is in charge, with other sisters, of 160 infants, ranging from the cradle to eight or nine years of age. The building, which is well known, financially labors under the same difficulties as the Female Orphan Asylum on Camp street. The children look well, are clean, healthy and well cared for. Providence Asylum for Orphans.-Under charge of Sister Mary, with three Sisters assisting. They have thirty children in charge, and are doing the best they can ; but they need clothing and money to pur chase, necessaries. St. Vincent's Home for Boys, 371 Bien ville street. This Home has eighty-eight children, under the superintendence of Mr. Powers. The, boys range from three to fifteen years. They are clean ; their food, if coarse, is abundant. There are eighty three attending class in a school-room much too small, and they are in great need of beds. Like the other asylums not re ceiving a cent from the Legislature, they are very much pressed for means. [This Home was established by the So ciety of St. Vincent de Paul, and is con ducted under its patronage. It is one of the special works of the Society and is un der the management of Mr. D. P. Scanlan, President of the work.] House of Good Shepherd, corner of Bienville and Broad streets. This is a voluntry reformatory institution for adults, and has 190 inmates. under charge of Sister- Mary and twenty-four other Sis tore. Clothing and shoes are greatly need ed. The stagnant water standing around I in thegroundsshlowsathat the lots need fill inug p as a matter of health. Everything I is very clean and orderly. Female Asylum of Our Lady of Mount I Carmel, No. 53 Pietylstreet. In charge of I Sister Superior St. John the Baptist. This I asylum has 212 lgirls, from four to eighteen years of age. They are in needl of beds, blankets, and musquito bare. Everything is in excellent condition, clean and orderly. The building is unfit to accommodate so I many pupil. Female Asylum of the Immaculate Con- I ception, 871 Rampart street, in charge of a Sister Superior Mary of St. Eutychus, and twelve other sisters. They have eiglhty inmates of from five to eighteen years of ege. The builling is in a deplorable con- a dition inside for want of repair, though C kept in as iperfect order as circumstances f rill allow. They are in need of blankets, I nosquito bars and shoes. Such articles c will be well bestowed if citizens can spare t eirn. lThe girls have manufactured al >cautiful silk embroidered flig, whichl they a tah ,to sell. t St. Mary's Boys' Asylum, corner Char roes and MHazent streets, in charge Cf Sister a uperior Mary of the Nativity, and twelve u itlll"r ·ateis. There are two hundred boys, I :ighty-onue of whom are infants. The d Splace is very cleea and well kept. There is peed of elahlabi an4d ýloed. The Legil uature withheld the pittance doled out to t these orphans. St. Joseph's Asylumi:- This Institution is r for children of both sexes; corner of f Josphine ad Laurel. It is governed by f M.oiher Mary Jacebini, aided by several Sinters. There are 200 children. Buildings are unsuitable.. :The necessaries of life are wanted. The Sisters do all the work. Everything is clean and orderly. St. Elizabeth's Asylum.-Corner of Maga sine and Josephine streets. This Asylum is for advanced girls. It is under the care of sister Angelsca. They have 186 girls industriousl'engaged in various domestic arts. The dormdtoriee are clean and airy and the cooking arrangements excellent. Tihe asylum is in debt. Sixth Preeinet-Asylum for Girls.-Na poleon Avenue, near Prytania street. This is a branch of'St. Elizabeth Asylum. It has only recently been established. It is a model of neatness, order and taste. The sity-seven children look healthy and oleam, and receive great care.. They are taught useful arts, etc. Louisiana Retreat for the Insane.-Upper Magazine street. Under the superintend ence of Sister Severina, this institution has attained eminence.- Sixteen or eighteen devoted and patient Sisters control seventy three insane people and give the greatest r satifaction. The ladies are obliged to make many temporary arrangements to meet the ever-increasing calls upon them. They have at least twenty more patients t than they can conveniently provide for. They give their services gratuitously. Respecting the Charity Hospital, the re I port says:-The total number of patients t Is 619. The number of patients variously employed in the hospital about 40. The I building and grounds afe kept in the most perfect good order. Economy is evident. The Sisters of Charity continue their in dispensable ministrations and conduct the culinary and domestic affairs of the hos pital in a most creditable manner. There is a low per cent of mortality and a com paratively small number of patients under Streatment. The hospital is in a condition to receive and treat as many as even our severest epidemics may send within its wards. Parish Prison, Orleans street.-Captain Johnson, with seven assistants, in charge of 303 inmates. This institution is in a highly organized and satisfactory condi tion. There are few amates awaiting trial for any length of ' Th-edical de partment is qnder ae -ll, ,,p of Dr. Cooper. Th Soiety of St. Vtqcent de Paul has es htbWihQ a small J rary, to which citizens are inite add a few more suitable books. The cells are clean, and all the inmates show that they are not stinted for food. The separation of the prisoners into two classes-the unconvicted and the convicted-is recommended. [Parties having suitable books, which they may wish to donate to the charitable work abovealladed tcanAoso byn ing them either to the members of the several Conferences of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, which exist in almost every parish of the city, or by sending them to this office. Books in all languages will be most acceptable, as amongst the inmates of the prison, for whose benefit the library is established, are men of all nationalities.] NAPOLEON AND THE VWESTRN 'UNION TELEGRAPH COMPANY.-It is agreeable at any rate to know that the illustrious exile I of Chiselhurst is not, at the worst, to be left penniless. We read : The Western Union Telegraph Company has long been desirous of expanding its headquarters in this city, and some time ago an effort was made by the company to purchase the Astor House for its great telegraphic centre. The attempt failed, however, and no bargain. could be effected. By selecting the Astor House it was in tended to bring the enormous business of the company in close and profitable proxi mity to the magnificent postofice in process of erection near the City Hall. In conse quence of the failure to purchase the Astor House, a second and more successful bid was made for the very desirable property on the northwest corner of Dey street and Broadway. This estate extends between fifty and sixty feet on the Broadway front, and runs back on Dey street to a depth of one hundred and fifty feet. It is at present occupied by several well-known firms, and is even now a valuable business centre. The most interesting fact connected with this estate is that it was bought seven years ago by Dr. Evans, the well-known Franco-American dentist, for the Emperor Napoleon. It is well known that Dr. Evans was a great. favorite with the Em peror, and that he became in many matters his confidential adviser. The property was purchased in behalf of Louis Napoleon by.Dr. Evans, for $480,000. It was bought of Dr. Evans, in behalf of the ex-Emperor, by the Western Union Company, for $840, 000; a profit, therefore, accruing to the deposed monarch of $360,000. It is the intention of the Western Union CT mpany to commence tearing down the buildings at present situated on the property, when the slet of May arrives. A magnificent struc tore will then be erected on the site thus obtained, which will be the great tele graphic heart of this continent, whence shall radiate the enormous system of wires now centering in the comparatively ob scure establishment with which the com pany has to be content at present. The new building will be architecturally one of the most emphatic boasts of the city, and will also be as complete in its accommoda tion as in its artistic qualities. The news which has already leaked out has exerted a very beneficial effect on neighboring property, and the knowledge that one of largest business centres of the city is to be erected in Dey street, has already occa sioned a brisk demand for stores and offices in the vicinity. A bMUsICAL SINECURE.--It is only right, at the commencement of Lent, to call Sir Charles Dilke's attention to the gratifying fact that the office of the King's Cock-crower has been abolished. The duty of this offi cial was to crow the hour each night withlin the precincts of the palace duriug Lent, instead of calling it out like an ordinary watchman. The last instance on record of the Cock-crower performing his duties was on the tfirst Ash-tWednesday after the acces sion of the House of hanover, whien the unfortunate man got into std trouble, for George ii., then Prince of \Values, beigr disturbed at supper by the Cock-crower enteri the room and making an unpleas osat n to qspeonnee that it was "past ten o'clock," Imagined that some insult was Intended and was with diffculty made to unaderstand that such was not the case. There is, however, reason to fear that the office existed for some time assa sinecure, after its duties had ceased to be performed, for in Debrett's Imperial Calendar for 1822 the "cock and cryer at Scotldud-yard" ap pears in the list of the persons holding ap pointments in the Lord Steward's depart ment of the Royal Household. It is to be regretted that although the Cock-crower no longer exists, the practice of cackling occa sionally like sillier birds than the cock still prevails in certain quarters-not oply in Lent, but at other seasons-and might be discontinued with advantage to the public service._ It is painful to note that the ob servance of Lent by public departments is far less strict now than in former days. The Lord Chamberlain, it is true, forbids theatrical representations on Ash-Wiednes day, but the Admiralty and War Office make no difference inthedletof-oua-ssilors and soldiers daring Lent, although by so doing they might effect a decided economy. A precedent for saving in this respect may be found in "Pepy's Diary." On the 12th of December, 1663, he writes: "We had this morning a great dispute between Mr. Gauden, the Victualler of the Navy, and J. Lawson and the rest of the commanders going against Argier about their fish and keeping of Lent, which Mr. Gauden so much insists upon to have it observed, as being the only thing that makes up the loss of his dear bargain all the rest of the year." Pall Mfall Gazette. UNPROFITABLE CASE OF LIFE INSURANCE. A Hartford life insurance company has re cently been called upon to adjust a loss caused by the death of Miss Eunice Whit beck, of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, in August, 1870, in the ninety-third year of her age. The Courant gives the following' details of the case : "She was insured twenty-five years ago by Mr. Abram A. Oakley, of Columbia County, New York, for his own benefit. Mr. Oakley probably expected to realize handsomely after a few payments but the venerable spinster of three score and ten didn't die, and after some years becoming discouraged at the constant drain upon his resources, lie as signed the policy to one Peter Conkling. The latter bore the brunt of annual pay ment for seven years, and gave it nup as a bad job, assigning the policy of James Conkling, who was plucky to the end, arnd paid regularly up to the year of his death, which occurred when Miss Whitbeck was ninety or thereabouts. Meanwhile, the case had become famons in the office, and No. " 3615," was looked upon as a verita ble curiosity in life underwriting. After Mr. Conkling's death his executors made the payments, and so much a custom had it become that they made one payment after her death which they did not learn for several months, residing several hundred miles away. This of course will be re funded. The executors will receive the amount of the policy, $1300, which is about half the amount paid in premiums by them and their predecessors. FoxES As SEEP-HERDERS.-The Stock ton (Cal.) Republican vouches for the fol lowing story : " People often wonder at the remarkable instinct displayed by well trained shepherd dogs, but what will they say when we tell them of a band of sheep that is guarded by foxes alone. The story seems improbable, but of its truth we have the most undoubted proof. On VWhisky hill, four miles from Milton, may be seen, almost any day, a large flock of sheep herded by foxes. These guardians of the little lambs are three- in number-one a gray for and the other two of the species known as the red fox. In point of intelli gence these novel shepherds are said to greatly surpass the best trained shepherd dogs. They perform their work well, and from morning till night are ever on the alert. The gray one seems to control, and in a great measure direct, the actionsof the other two. A gentleman informs us that he yesterday saw the gray fox pursue and attack a hog that had seized a lamb and was making off with it. The contest was short and sharp, and resulted In the hog dropping the lamb and beatibg a hasty re treat. The fox picked up the apparently uninjured lamb and carried it back to the flock." HISTOnr.-If men could learn from his tory, what lessons it might teach us ! But passion and party blind our eyes, and the light which experience gives is a lantern on the stern, which shines only upon the waves behind us.-Coleridge. MISCELLANEOUS ADVERTISEMENTS. E. A.
