To the Editor of Morning Star : Five or six weeks of fine growing weather have added somewhat to the prospects of the crops along the coast, but the chance has not been sufficient to cause our people to expect any better crop than was made last year. Times are dull, and money is not to be had. Property sells at merely nominal prices and we fear must so continue. Several pieces of nice property were sold here last Saturday at Sheriff's sale, and " went for a song." The plantation of lion. C. A. Brusle, near St. Gabriel, in this Parish, established and cultivated as a sunar estate, was sold for the pittance of $7,700-title good. Several pieces of de sirable town property were adjudicated at correspondingly low figures-for less, in fact, than the main buildings on them cost. This is truly an ugly state of affairs, and claims the attention of every good citizen. Add to this the heavy burden of taxation the people of our State have to bear, and one must admit that the planters deserve praise for working along as courageously as they do. Pursuant to a call made by our kind pastor, Father D'Hemecourt, at High Mass last Sunday, a number of gentlemen-old and young, of our congregation assembled in the evening at the presbytery, and after • a few words from the Rev. Father explana tory of the meeting, the gentlemen present at once organized and proceeded to form a section of the Cathollo Militant Union of the Cross, by erecting Michel Herbert, SEsq., a worthy representative of the old Creole stock of our section, President; John H. Shanks, editor of the iberville South, Yice -President , Austin Hunt, Treasurer; and Lucien Grass, Secretary. Thus this good work has been begun in our midst, and we hope will go on until every member of our congregstloa is en rolled in the Militant Union, to do his part in the great Catholic movement of the world. PELICAN. LETTER FBOM PASS CHRISTIAN, MISS. PAss CHnISTIAN, May 6, 1872. Editor Morning Star: Having been favored with an invitation to attend a literary and musical entertain ment given by the Irving Literary Society of Pass Christian College on Saturday evening last, I was so well pleased with the entertainment as to deem a report due to the gentlemen of the association. At the appointed hour I proceeded to the college, and, from a distance, perceived i.numerable lights pendent from the trees, and hung on the bushes and shrubs that adorn the extensive and beautiful grounds. Nearer approach revealed a large number of fanciful Chinese lanterns of all possible shapes, sizes and colors, which, suspended in .tho ar waved to and f wit th gentle breeze, aflording a sight at once novel and picturesque. Scarcely had we taken our seats when the college band executed an overture, showing that the efforts of their eflicient leader, Professor L. Bayersdorifer, had beeu crowned with complete success. The Irvings then stepped upon the stage, when Mr. W. A. Elder, President of the society, in a few i well chosen words, welcomed the audience, begging their leniency in behalf of his comrades, as mete tyros in the art of litera ture. Tile exercises of the evening were vrely interesting, and, with some exceptions, much. praise must be given b-th for thought and delivery. In tile latter re 1 spect, however, several members were somewhat deficient, and evidently showed a want of previous practice, which ma terially detracted from the merit of their compositions. This, I afterwards learned, - was in no small degree owing to the fact that a sudden illness deprived them of the f valuable assistance of their critic. Space is wanting to make a full review of the pr, grammne, but Mr. W. C. McCarty deserves menlltion for the feeling manlier in which 1:e delivered "The Scveinth PIlague of Egypt." - A very humnerous and interesting corlt.s pIttoudlece, America, by Jno. Chilnamnan was read by Mr. J. Tesson, whilethe "'May tiarol," an original poem fromr the pen: of Mr. ii. Dufour showed that gentlela:tn to be possessed of considerable power iin thi' - departlent of literature. y In the musical depllartlment IMr. E. Iir t naudz gained lucch applause for tllhe u manner in which lie executed tha:t beauti 1 ful d difflicult opera of "Robert le Diable." A song from the choir prove4d ea pleasing as to be encored, anld a liket good fortune met the solo of Mr. Geo. Corkery. t e regret no cing able to particularize more, since all the young gentlemen cer tainly did great credit to themselves and furnished a musical treat to tlhe audience that would have done honor to older and more etxperienced perfornlcrs. The laues tion " Which country sutllBred the more, Ireland ;r i'oland f" was debated by i.rs. 'Tierta and Dufour, for IReltnd, whlilh Mtle'nts. L.echlo and Stewart main tallit d the catuse .f Poland.

ENGLAND. A serious tlot took place in Klarkof, a larKs market town of South Russell, last wee caused by the interference of the police with the Easter amnusements of the people. The fire-engines were brought out to disperse the crowd by throwing water on them. This so exasperated the populace that they attacked the police and fire stations and gutted them. The Gove nor ordered out the troops, who I were stoned by the mob, whereopon they fired, and many citizens were killed and wounded. The rioters then dispersed and at last accounts the city was quiet but under martial law. The debate in the House of Commons, on the bill to rlepeal the unlawful assemblage act, was protrac:ted to a late hour, and was very exciting. Tihe motion was for a second read f ing of tlc bill. Several Irish members took oceasio, to make speeches in defence of HJome Rule. What they wanted was to have the laws of Ireland assimilated with those of Eng- i land. The Marquis of Hartington, Secretaiy for Ireland, opposed and denounced Home Rule at synonymous with Fenianism. He ex plained the present law, showing that in effect it prohibited the assembling of an Irish Par liament. Isaac Butt, member for Limerick, D declared himself for Home Rule, but indig nantle denied that he was a Fenian, as inti mated by the Marquis of Hartington, of whom a h- e demanded retraction.' He protested against such expression coming from a minister, who received his information of the country he sought to rule over through detectives and Sspies--the real ruling powers in Ireland. If it was true that home rulers were Fenians, it spoke well for Home Rule, which had been able to win back to peace men driven into re hellion by shameless legislation. Until Irish r men obtained the right to manage Irish affairs in an Irish parliament, peace, content and prosperity were utterly impracticable. He warned Commons that If the act was not re pealed Irelan would endanger te sasety Stheempire. He wanted for Ireland a local government-like that of the American States, and for the kingdoms national legislation, similar to the American Congress. FRA~CS. I The Commission of Capitulation, in their report, praise the commander of Phalsbourg for his brave and obstinate defence of that 1 fortress, and recommend that he be decorated 1 with the Cross of the Legion of Honor. They also exonerate the commander of Neubrisach of all blame for the capitulation of that place. The report exonerates the General Command ing in the Lower Rhine Department of all blame for the surrender of Listenberg, and 1 reprimands the commanders who capitulated I at Marsal, Vietry and Le Francoise. The trial, I by court martial, of Marshal Bazaine, who was a censured by the Committee on Capitulation t for his conduct at Metz, will be held at the riding school at Versailles, and wilLcomanence the latter part of April. That will probably last over one hundred days. One thousand I two hundred witnesses will be summoned to 1 testify before the court. The Governmaent I will allow Bazaine to employ, as his counsel, i M. Lanchard, the well-known advocate. Mair shal Bazaine surrendered himself. Tuesday night, to stand trial by court nartial. DENMARK. The action of the police authorities in for bidding the members of the International So ciety fronm holding a meeting in Copenhagen, S sciquent arrest of the President and Treasurer-of-the -branch there, gave rise to a great excitement among members of the or- a ganization. A large number gathered in the I streets and created considerable alarm by a their violent denunciations of the Governlmen t. They were finally dispersed by the police. It has been deemed prudent to place a military guard around the public bui'ings andl palaces * until the excitement bas Watirely subsided. SThe leading members of the society will be e prosecuted for high treason. The police are a adopting energetic mioasureS to suppress any violence. B EPAIX. The news has been very coutradictory, and r though coming from Government sources, it . would seem that the Carlists are not yet en tirely dispersed in spite of their defeat on the 4th inst., in Navarro by Marshal Seranno and Gen. Marion. In this fight DJn Carlos lost 35 killed and 747 prisoners. UNITED STATES. t SOtrTH CAnou.NA.-The Kiklux cases in the Unaited States Court have concluded.

MIsoILLtWZOUB IRISH WEWS. MR. JOHN MARTIN, M.P., ON HOME RULE. Mr. John Martin has written a letter to the Freeman'sn Journal, urging that a mo tion in favor of Home Rule should be brought forward in the House of Commons, e before the close of the present session. He obse/qt that some of the Home Rule members d emit good policy for Ireland to join with the nglish and Scotch mem bers in trying to effecolegislative changes which may perhaps tet.to smooth the way towards Irish independence; but he believes that the sooner the irrevocable de termination of Ireland is made known to , England, the sooner the English are in dnced to confess the evil of the Union, the sooner the two peoples deliver themselves a out of the present unhappy relation of a hated master and disaflected slave, the sooner an honorable, friendly and safe ar rangement is made between. the Queen's English subjects and her Majesty's Irish subjects-the better for all parties. Mr. Martin sees no reason why the session should belost. He is convinced that Home Rule will not be obtained until the English -people, in whose sense of justice be has slight confidence, are convinced by a uni versal expressiob of opinion in favor of the demand by the Irish race at honie and abroad, that it is no longer safe for them to keep us in subjection. So rapid and strong t is the present movement for Home Rule, t that such,a universal pronouncement of the Irish race may soon be obtained, if the proper means be taken for obtaining it; and a parliamentary debate this besaion seems to him one of the proper means, and one the neglect of which may seriously re trd progress ofthe national cause. THE IRISH PROTESTANT-STNOI. This body has been very busy indeed. The proceedings as reported in the daily papers read very much like those of a pro vincial town council or poor law board of guardians. There is an utter absence of the dignity befitting a religious governing body-and, if not an absence of courtesy in debate, there is a very frequent disre gard of it-as when a lay member tells the Archbishop of Dublin that he has "violated his ordination vows," and where the lie direct is given to the statement of another member. By one resolution the names of Saints were removed from the e calendar, and by another the Lessons of the Apocrypha were expunged from the Book of Common Prayer, notwithstanding a very feeble attempt made by the clerical party headed by the Archbishop to retain Sthem; one lay member characterizing them as a tissue of "nonsense, fables, and lies." One would think that the reformiation of Protestantismn was work enough for the Synod, yet the education question could not be shelved thloogh marked "very dan gerous." After various forms of resolution had been discussed. the following moved by Sir It. Orpen was adopted: "That this Synod most strongly deprecates the intro duction into Ireland of the system of ede cation proposed by the Roman Catholic hnierarchy." Though it is certain thiat every member present would desire to take the education of Catholic children out of the hands of Catholics, it is instructive to note how great a number of the mem bers have qualms of conscience as to the entire elimination of religion from school teaching, as shown by the voting or or against the resolution as follows : Laity Ayes, 77, Noes, 52 ; Clergy- -Ayes 71, Noes G63. There being consequently 118 in favor l and 115 against the resolution. TIPPEIARY. © An agent of the International has visi 1 ted Carrick-on-Suir, and met with signal failure there. The honest men of Carrick would bare nothing to say to him, but he nevertheless proposes to himself to make a tour of the towns and villages of Tipperary. 1 In publishing this report from a correspon dent in Carrick-onuSuir, the Tipperary a Free 'ress observes that Tipperary nmen occnasion-irlly wnear strong lnonts, and, as a Stle, are nInuseCu'.ar anid hIard-fisted, and our coln ten! , rlary racily counsel tlhenu, if this agenlt lshould insult theini with his iropo nal, noir Ito '"lhrow hiimi into Ia holrse-pond witlhont attacing it rIopln to isa Ioldy, nor to licn:k h:ll too nncerenOllliously out of tlihen-ir din-rict." If tile agent's zeal has not quite overcoule hlis prudence, lie will leave Slthat latituidce speedily. WORKING LIENs ASSOCIATION. At a meeting of the working-men and othlre, interested in the labor movement held inl the Mechanic's Institute for the purpose of drawing public attention to the present deplorable condition of the labor ing classes, a resolution calling on em ployers to consider the greatly increased cost of living, and to increase the wages of laborers to IG shillings per week, was adopted. The promoters of the meeting vehemently repudiated the slightest accord ot symnpathy with the International Asso ciation. TIlE GALWAY EI.ECTION PETITION. It is as yet impossible to predict when the case of the petitioners will be concluded. Moral suasion by the clergy is all that is proved nup to thie present. It is nonsense ton speak of anything else, a landlord alone can coerce a vote. Lord Clauricarde's agent acknowledged thlnat twelve tenauts have received notice since the election. SUNDAY CLOSING OF PUCI.IC-IIOUSES. At a publio meeting at Belfast, resolu tions, and a petition supporting Sir Donni nic Corrigan's bill for thie closing of public houses in Ireland on Sunday, were unaoi motiily adopted. A Ipetition in favor of thie same was unanimously adopted by the Board of Guardians of Limerick Unions. IPItESENTATION TO IIE REV. DR. GOWING. The friends and admirers of thlis reverend gentleman have just presented him with a testimonial and an address to mark their sense of his fearless and disinterested championship of the poor Fedden tenants, whose case was brought under public notice by him, and caused such a sensa tion throughout the entire kingdom.

Thiers at Paris.--M. Thiers continues to amuse himself in the absence of his masters ; he has been present at an official reception of hi. Jules Simon's, and has given two dinners and receptions at the f Elysee. Among the guests at the first din ner were several mayors of Paris* the second was given to the clergy aDn the judges. But both at M. Jules Simon's and at his own reception M. Thiers took care that he should be overheard to say : I must go in time to reacl' my legal domicile; I must not "sleep out." as I am under the surveillance of the Committee of Perman enco. The impression produced -and probably intended to be produced-is that B the President is subjected to the most ab surd restraint, and that there can be no possible reason why he should not be al lowed to live in Paris, if he likes. The question of the transfer of Government is sure to come on again not long after the reopening of the Assembly. JlM. Jun.ua and Molus. - The Abbe SJunqua has been condemned by the Bor I deaux court to six months imprisenment, we presume for libellous publications-but has given notice of appeal, and has arrived in Paris. The other priest, accused of complicity in these libels, M. Mouls, is re ported to be about to open an "Old Cathe lic" chapel at Brussels. r France and the Haly See.-The Uaivers announces that a numerously signed peti tion in favor of the rights of the Holy See will be presented to the Assembly after the recess. The same paper publishes a note signed by M. Louis Veuillot, in which he says that the words uttered by the Pope on the 13th inst., (they are published in our Roman Letter) recommending charity to certain Catholics, must certainly be exclu sively applied to him. M. Veuillot says he will obey, and will seek to effect the de sired harmony; but if the Pope. who is the Judge, considers that the work of the LUni revs can no longer have the character de manded by the interests of the Church, that work shall be terminated. GERMANY. The Prussian Government and the Church. The last of the vexatious measures against the Church in Prussia-which a correspon dent in the Voce dellc Verita attributes to a quasi-reconciliation between'Prince von I Bismarck and the Masonic iuterest repre B sented by the Crown Prince-has been the removal of about sixty-ecclesiastics in the Polish provinces from their posts as in spectors of schools. The Bishop of Ilil desheim has directed the clergy of his dio cese to retain the inspection of the schools, at least provisionally; adding that if the ! position becomes practically untenable, and it is impossible to reconcile the Divine " law with human legislation, "we shall I have to enure the grief of withdrawing our co-operation, and aibandiiiing a field of labor which the Church has cultivated s with so much love and so many sacrifices." r The Bishop's answer to the inquiry respect ing the effects of excommunication is not yet made public. In the meantime, aFree mason has been expelled from his lodge for disobedience to the supreme lodge. The cases are parallel enough, but we do not Shear that Herr Falk lhas objected to excom munication when fulminated by this tribu ' nal. The President of a Catholic club has also been prosecuted, because on the sup - I ression of the club it appeared from the archires that this club, with many others, jo,ined in the address last year to Cardinal 1 Autouelli, protesting against the calutmnmies r contained in: a pretended " Biography " of his 'Eminence. Tile Central Committee, the court decided, had become a political association by the fact of prop:gaating this address, and the particular club in que~s timn, by entering into communication with the Committee, hail violated the law by communicating with another political as sociation similar to itself. If we are to be lieve the London Standard's Cologne cor I respondent, the Government ere by no means so certain of ultimate success as they were a few weeks ago. The Conserva tive party are becoming suspicious, and if it becomes apparent that Government is not only acting against the Catholics but throw ing itself into the arms of the Liberals, the whole Conservative element in the house will go over in a body to the Opposition. Bishop Strossmayer.- We contradicted, some months ago, the authenticity of a speech said to have been deliveredl in the Council by Bishop Strossmayer, and pub lished by the enemies of thle Church. This, or something like it,, appears to have got into the Austrian papers, for Mgr. Stro.s mayer lhas written to Mgr. Feasser, the Secretary of the Council, to repudiate it, mdding that hIis ideas are radically d;tl'er emit from those maintained in thie pretend ed speech. " I am conscious," hlie contin ies, " that I have never said anything I which was calculated really to weaken the authority of the Holy See, or to wound in, the least degree thIe unity of the Church." lIe authorizes tile Bishop of St. Polten to make any use of his letter, and that Pre late publishes it as coming from onup "with whose iname thie enemies of thIe Church take," he says, "strange liberties;" We i mention the f.mct principally for thIe infor mation of those who have gone so far as to I name Mgr. Strossmayer as a possible con- - secrator of schismatic Bishope. ITALY. 7he College of Cardinals.-" Our Own Correspondegpt, of the London Telegraph , writing from Paris, under date of April 2 14th, says:-" A private letter from Rome, received yesterday in Paris, and writtm , by one of high authority in the Vatican, states that the Pope has no longer any in tention whatever of leaving the Eternal City. The College of Cardinals, it adds, has deter mined that, in the event of the death of the Holy Father, the Conclave to elect his suc- j ceasor will be held elsewhere, probably ( within the limits of France or Austria, or perhaps in the Island of Malta. ThIe same I letter says that the Pope has been persuad- 1 ed to fill up thie vacancies among the car- - dinals, which now amount to twenty-six , or twenty-seven ; and that in thie list of hats conferred thenames of the Archbishop " of Paris, the Bishop of Orleans, Archbishop Manning, and three German prelates will be included. The Pope, so says the letter, aeems to have no fear 'for the fature,and appears confident that sooner or later the Temperal Power of the Roman See will be restored. But the cardinals are evidently impressed with the idea that, should a new election for the Papacy take place, more or less pressure will be put upon them to elect as Pope one of the few car dinals who are on comparatively, good terms with the Italian Court. The Ambas. sandors accredited to the Vatican from France, Austria, Belgium, Holland, Spain and Portugal are very anxious that, in the event of the Pope's death, the Conclave should take place at the Vatican, and offer to guarantee the perfect freedom of the future Pope's election --Butthe-- cardwira do not seem to haveany confidence in the present state of Ronle, and say that, although the Italian Government might aci i htitly by them, the mob of the city is not to le truasced. WVIlAT I KNOW ABOUT F.al:.ILNo.-Horace Greeley's work on agriculture has been read to some purpose by the people who made the Goshen butter that A. W. Skaidon 4 Co. sell, at the corner of Jackson and Rousseau streets. Besides the bucolic luxury, some. times, factiously denominated cow.grease, Mr. Skardon has on hand and forsaleat very reasonable terms, a fine selection of Teas, just received from China. He has also Fulton market beef, the finest in the market and just as cheap as can be bought in any wholesale store in town. All the favorite brandsof ale are to behadat this popular store. To sum up, A. W. 8kardon & C., can be safely recommended to all housekeepers for their choice stock of grooeries and their reasonable prices. So many humorous pathetic, grand. eloquent and other klinds of edioral pwis have been written about the relative merits of t different aeswi ma chines nownannfsctu rsd, that people scarcely know which to chose.
