Two very considerable on'es, besides thie daily receptions of faunili, a nnd individnalp, have taken place this week. On Sunday the women of the parishesof S. IPeter, S. Spirito, S. Martha, and 8. Maia, Transpoutina, headed by their respective parisalh pi-isat and the president of the "Circolo"or Guild of S. Martha, to which they all belong, were received in the Sala I)ucale. 500 pool women of the labonring classes, including small bshopkeepers in bye-street, all clean and tidy, and many in thie picturesque cos tume now so rapidly dying out, presented themselves to ask for the Apostolic Ilene diction for themselves and families pre vious to an eight days' IRetreat as a ire aration for their Easter Communion. This Retreat is to be given by the l'assionist Fathers in Holy Week. The Holy Father addressed to them a short discourse, en couraging them to presevere in the use of the Sacraments, in patience under the dif iculties of their condition, so much aggra vated by existing circuonstances, the in creased cost of all the cecesanries of life, and other hardships, arnd terminating a disconrso full of good sense, benevooence, and afoetion, gave to themi and their ihue bands and families tie Benediction they s6dught for. On Tuesday thie inhabitants of the large parish of Stir. Maria Maggiore had an audieuce. 'They brought with them as an offering to IisIHoliness a remarkably fine copy of the Madonna venerated in that Hasilica. The artist in Francis de Rho den, the first pupil of Overbeck. An ad dress was read by the parish priest in the name of the assemrbled piarilioners, to which tihe Holy Father graciously replied, pointing out thie difference between the period when faith inspired the erection of that magnificent edifice andi the present time, which is one, generally speaking, of destruction. l uliarluded to the danger f(hish indeed is manifest to all who go up the Esquilinelhill) that the making "-' new streets-not one of which will give ta tter access to the church-may end in the eer ions damage, and even partial destruction of one of the most magniticent eldificees in Rome, the deep cutting by the side of the church having placed the foundations in great peril. lie trusted, however, that the sacred edifice might be preserved from the danger that was so imminent, and that the Holy Mother in whose honor the church ha been originally built under such exttaor dinary circumstances (thu snow in August, hence the title, Sta. Maria ad Nives), would continue to watch over it; whilst the work that had no foundation but impiety, that was accompanied by the blasphemies of the low tolerated by the greet, by the exclu sion of all that related to the spiritual and by a seeking only after the material, must in the end inevitably perish. HIis Holiness concludled by giving to all present the us ual brteedictioi. One of the events of the past week has been a ciurse of two lictuiiis by the cele brated Father Secclhi, ii the great hall of the Cancelleria. The ploceedts were to be devoted to the poor boy-attizans of the city, wiho have been collected togetrher un der the auspices of tile Society for I'roiuiit ing Good Wiorks. Notwithatanding the high price of the tickets, lifteen francs, the room was well tilled- Thile illustrious as tronomer was greeted with great applause as he entered, lie spoke in French, as the language heat known to tihe audience, and comrmenced by an apology for any abort-comings in that iianguage, an aponlogy which the French reporters say was totally unnecessary, since he spoke with perfect flsency and correctness. 'lTheo first lecture was on Saturday last on tihe Sun. I can not give you a detailed account of it as it lasted nearly three hours. It embraced all the recent discoveries which have nmade Father Secchi's namne famous in all coun tries, and was illustrated with a series of the most beautiful experiments and illue trations showing how, by means of the spectroscope, tlhe presence of various min erals was detected. The spots. the pro toberances, the eruptions, were all dis cnssed at some lenght and with singular distinctness and perspicuity ; and the au dience separated with unaiuinrous expres sions of delight at the instruction they had received. On Monday the Rev. Father concluded hlis rewarks on the Sun, rand pro ceeded to the planets, comets, nod tixed suare. In examining these remote bodies too the spectroscope and electric light play ed as important part. The Rev. Faitlher spoke of tlo stars that are applarently white (but in reality blue), of those that are red, and others that aire yellow, and shlowedt that these rays depend muchl oU.the miin crals contained in those distaint orbs. For the greater part of tihe experimental illus tratmons the room was darkened, rand tihe objects represented projected imn a white cloth. Towards the end of his lecture Father Secchli spoke of the great aid, in money and otherwise, andi the unceasin encouragement ie hltd reiceived fromu tihe Pope, whose intelligent interest in the pro gress of science was only surpassed by his zeal for the pronmotion c-f the glory of Uod; andat the contirision the following words wereseae in brilliant light rt tire end of the room : PIO*1.1~' I' P M* INTER' sIDRIiA' NICAHTI* u-rURIxOs' ANoI)i (To Pius IX., Supreme J'ontil;, shining as a unn among the stars, mrany years !) Tins elicited a universal and enthusiastic burst of applause. Many who were present af terwards went to thank Fasthier Secchi, arid toexpress their great gratification for the great treat he had affordted them ; while those who undertook the charitable car, of the boys in whose beialt ho gave Iris lecture must ever feel indebted to his char ity. And people talk of suppressing tire *Religious Orders! ATTEMPl--rs-t t URItAte E AT THEV tii Est. 'On Friday last, 2lst March, tire Feast of St. Bsnedicet, Fatter Lnikbircini, at tIre tiean, in the course of liii Lent sermon, spoke of the great servicts tie Ilenedictinui Order had rendered to the frolid in tire preservation and nrulti;hliuatiou of valu able manuscripts that ase now tire p ido and the gloty of the countrias in 'whichm they exist, and are sought by Governments as well as Individuals, at prices almost I fabeloes. He spoke of the monsteries ~vI~~·X. j· ~~-Y ~ -~~-l beineg the only refuges of learning in the times when Geoseric. Totila, and others of same stamp, ravaged Europe with their - hordes of barbarians. )During this dis course, in which, indeed, if there was a fault, it was that it was somewhat of an historical lecture as well as a sermon, . about thirty rouglhs entered the church, a some uttering a sort of low whistle, some o thing between a whistle and-abish. Many y present having a too lively recollection of . the terrible scene in the Gesan on the 10th e March 1l71, began to leave the church, es Specially ladies having the charge of clil ' dren. The hissing continued; more ladies rese and left, and at last the preacher some d what abruptly closed his discourse. The re gentlemen present went to the pulpit stairs or to form an escoagfor the preacher on his g way to the sa:crrsty, the clutch rapidly a emptied, and so the matter endled. On the , following Sunday there was again an at d tempt to renew the whistling, but the cnu gregation was too numerous and imposing . for it to succeed. In the afternoon there was again a little renewel of the whistling, sand both then and in the morning some in It solent-looking youths just outside lighted , their cigars with some of the little hand . bills whLI are so often given at church f doors in hine to announce where sonme . function or ceremony is to take place dur Sing the week. These were said to be etu dents of the new regime at what was the College of the Sapienza, now the Royal SUniversity, and where manners form no part of the instruction, and religion has been "suppressed." On the following day, however, greatly to his surprise, Father s Lombardini, the preacher, who is brother Sof General Lombardini, aide-de-camp to King Victor Emmanuel, was summoned to the Questura on the charge of having preaclhed agaionst "the sacred person of the SKing," lie was not confronted with his Saccusers, and had to uniergo an examina Stion of cconsiderable lengtli as to what he ~ did say. his statement was, fortunately, fully confirmed by a Guard of "Public SSafety," who had been there in plain clothes. So, all charges against him hav t ing utterly and signally failed, he was f "warned,' and set at liberty. The accus Sere are known to be of the iRed Republican Sand Communnnist party, who are rabid Sagainst the clergy, and above all the Reli Sgious Orders, as were their Parisian com rades and chiefs. On Tuesday morning, Sthe Feast of the Annunciation, there was again an attenmpt to disturb the congrega tion, the object being evidently in all tht se cases to provoke a breach of tLe peace, and so cause a general contusion greatly to the p advantage of nminor "anoexationists" and S"expropriators," while entirely serving the I turn of the greater ones. There has been Sfound also a chalk or plaster bomb in Gay azzari's meeting-roli ; all is no doubt the Swork of the same party, all intended to aid the desire of the lowest and most violent t of the Socialist party to get rid tfiret of the SReligious Orders and theni to proceed to other mneasies conducro t."Equality and Fraternity." t i'USaERTT- Oi SACRIED A11SIC. On 'Tuesdlay afternoon there was a con - cert in the great hall of the Cancellecia in aid of the charity for the maintenance in sickness and other assistance of poor femrnule servants. O.? Thursday, 27th, there was a Sconcert on a larger scale with a chorus of t 21111 amateurs, with full band, in aid of the charities, conducted by the Pious Union of Catholic ladies. The introduction and prayer, frunom Mose in Egitto, wits miagnifi cently rendered as was also the whole of the second part. A tino chorale, by Pal 3estina, was also executed with telling ef fect notwithstanding its difficulty. a:ENEIIAi. NEWS. Not many people are staying in Rome, the beautiful weather inducing many to go on to Naples. iRone, however, is still full with a eloating population. Many have come with an expectation of seeing the old t Papal ceremonoies of Holy Week ; but, as .these cannot take place, they are proceed ing to other parts of Italy. IlorIE Fcl siaNISHIe AS ANAIIT.-WVO have plenty of elegant houses in our large . cities and their surroundings,, but fiw homes; plenty of furiiituro, but few com forts; plenty of food, but poor service; plecty of dress but small comfort in wear- a ing it. Why is all this1 WYitlh all the means of elegant, and comfortable, and healthy a living, why this universal unrest? We :t cannot answer our own questions in de tail, but will add a few words on the dses of furniture in pronmoting the health and hlappiness of a family. First; Let all fur niture be selected, prirmarily for use, sec oodarily fobr decoration. To furnish your front ball so elegantly as to feel obliged to take your company in at the basemient duoor, would be noc greater folly than to c furnislah your parlor so expensively that t you stand in mortal fear the moment you openC its doors for use, or throw open. its windows for light andl air. The country "Aunt" whose "best room" was too rice for '"ordinary company,"i made so iian-y enc mica by her invidlious distinctions, tlhat her best room, small as it was, was anmple I to hold all the feiends she hadi left by the r end of the firat year's experiment. A good t rule in furniture, as in dress, is, never to buy ain article which your means will not allow you to use on all proler occasions, and replace. whie-n, by reasaon of use, its utility or beauty lenbsen c destroyed. Sec- , ond: HaIrmonize the different aerticlea in each room, or suite of rooms, and balance . the whole household around the ocie cen-i tril thought, so that you can exhibit your house as whiole, without shaming tue ce'sa gerness of one department by the rich- I ness and display in another. Let comafort guide you in every selection-your own, t rather than your neighbors' your children's I rather than your own, if either must yield t -and yoe will leave a home where good a taste will ncever be oifluded, acd where earthly liappintess cmay reign undisturbcal.-- e Coh abine Maikci.

"Aunie Laurie" is an okld Scottish sing, te w itten by a Mtr. IDouglass, of Finland, whliclh, after sluttllboing for ylars, allmost forgotten, wits intruduceld anew' to tlhe musical world by tilhe Muses Cummnlings in their Scottish concerts. It owes its won-J derous ipopularity to an incident whiclh 1 happened during thle Crilnmea mar, on the eveunog preceding the battle of tite Alma. ilh atllhitd troops had anariciel from Balt- aj sckik lay to the Alma, wlitn upoii the liouijanak, a smltil strneam, they bivouack ott on thle evening of die 19tll of Septemu ben, 185.73 T'ho marcha laual baeen a severe one, aund Itt thle tired men, after tleir evecing meal, land gathered arsoutnd the catmp-flrea in knots to while away the time in talk of TI homte and tlhose near and dear to their hlearte. It was when the troops were thus engaged that a iighlalznder of Sir Col an Campbell's btigadae began singing, in a clear, strong voice, this eweet song. The effect was oeetaicalt. Tile clerished recol lections of thlir tative land stirring their taecarts, one by one tIle Scottisa troops join ed in the music, until from tllousanda of voices tile refrain.

In the deepest distress, j he composed this chesaping song. A Lon don publisher gave him one hundred dol lars for it-a mere pittance for such I spendthrift. He wrote other enccessfu songs, but in a moment of weakness, de pressed with poverty, he forged the name of Ihis publisher, and notwithstanding tha most streabons efforts were in his behal made by his many friends, In which thi publisher joined, Foley Hall was throws into Newgate Prison, where le died, bro ken-hearted, before his trial came on. "Home, Sweet, Home," a song that cat never grow old, was composed by our grea countryman, John Howard Payne, when wandering a homeless, penniless strange; in the modern Babylon. It was during one of these nigta, when suffering from hunger and impecuniosity, he liatlessly walfed the Paris streets that, through the undrawn curtains, he noticed tihe firee glowing upon the hieartlis of the dwelling' which hie lpassel, nod the families gathered around their cih'eerful light, betokening the happiness reigning within. Depressed witt his unfortunatn condition, the emotion of his heart found uttterance in the form ol this sweet song, which he wrote next day (Sunday), in an upper room of the Palail Royal. It is ,sl to think that from the bitter anguish of a heaven-born mind this exquisite result should follow, and yet the world's history is tilled with many more examples of the paradox, "in agony joy is born."- TI'alson's Art Jour. Calling a boy up in the morning can hardly be classed under the head uf "pas times," especially if the boy is fond of ex ercise the dlay before. And it is a little sinagular that the next hardest thing to get ting a boy out of bed is getting him into it. There is rarely a mother who is a suec cess at rousing a boy. All motherp know this ; so do their boys. And yet the mother seemus to go at it in the right way, she opens the stair door and insinuatingly oh s.'rve, "Johnny." 'hiere is no response. "John-ny." Still no response. Then there is a short, sharp "John," followed a mom eat later by a prolonged and empihlatic "John Henry." A grunt from the upper regions signifies that an impression has been made, and the motherls encouraged toadd: "You'd better he getting down here to your breakfast,-young man, before I come up there an'. give you something you'll feel." This so startles the young man that hlie immediatey goes to sleep again. And the operation has to be re peated several times. A father knows no thing about this trouble. He merely open his mouth as a soda bottle ejects its cork, -and the "John Henry" that cleaves the air of that stairway goes into that boy like electricity, and pierces the deepest reces ses of his very nature. And hle pope out of that bed and into his clothee and down the stairs with a promptness that is com mendable. It is rarely a boy allows him self to disregard the paternal summons.
