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

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.
