VzcKSLsURG;, MIss., April 28th, 1"73. eEditor of the Morning Star: visited Monroe, La. last week, and I find very pretty and thriving town, pleasantly ated on the Ouachita river and in the midst magnificent agricultural country. When railroad to Shreveport is completed, and n it is connected with St. Louis by rail via le Rock, Arkansas, it will be a place of siderable importance-it would be a splen location for a good Catholic school or col which I am sure would be liberally sus ed and patronized by the inhabitants who most desirous of having such among them. Sisters of the Sacred Heart are already blished there. e Sisters of Mercy have a well established ol in Vicksburg that is highly appreciated, ir convent is a beautiful and substantial ding. So also are the other Catholic buil s of this place. The good Father Leray, se energy has effected so much, is now t anxious to establish a first-class school boys in Vicksburg, and there is no doubt that he will be ably seconded in his efforts rds that end by his congregation, to m too much praise cannot be given for liberality. e mission given here by Father Rooney h1i able assistants a short time ago, was and success, and it is very edifying to find great degree of veneration and love enter ed by this congregation for those good eats. o.

ROME.-The only telegram received this week concerning the health of the Pope was dated April 28th. It said "he has passed a rest less night and anxiety concerning his condi tion is renewed." As nothing has since been heard, we presume that those who are so auxi ousto see him dead, have nothing favorable to their hopes to communicate. The ministry have tenderedt their resignations to Victor Emmanuel, the Chamber of Deputies having passed an adverse vote to a project of theirs. The resignations have been accepted but as yet no new ministry has beenl announced. ENGLAND.-In tile House of Commons, Mlr. Hamilton moved that the Government be in structed to purchase the Irish railroads, stat ing that Ireland was ready to defray the ex pense of a transfer. Er. Gladstone opposed the project. He offered to help the railroads with loans at a low rate of interest, and was ready to assist them in an emergency. He ad vised the amalgamation of the roads. The mo tion was rejected. The London Republicans have undertaken the prosecution of the Car list Committee who are collecting funds for Don Carlos, as they claim, in violation of in ternational law.

The total result of the vot ing in the city and country to fill vacancies was the return of three Radicals, four Repub licans and one Legitimist. IM. Tbiers was greatly discouraged by the Count de Rumu sat's defeat. V hen the result of the election was announced, he remained alone for an hour. The tenor of all advices received from Paris indicates that a serious conflict is threat ened.

At noon the Emperor entered the rotunda, with the Crown Princess Victoria of Germany on his arm. He was fol lowed by the German Crown Prince Frederick William, who escorted the Empress Augusta. After these came the eldest son of the Prince, accompanied by the Prince Imperial of Ans tria.

WASIrINGTON, May 1.-The reason for the postpouemncut by the Supreme Court to-day of the application of counsel for Warmoth for the allowance of an appeal from Judue Durell, in the Louisiana case, was that the court had nothing but the application before it, and, therefore, could not act. Counsel was granted leave to file the record and other papers in the case, preliminary to its consideration. Several eminent lawyers, practicing before this court are of opinion that the Supreme Court will not immediately act npen the subject at the Fall term-to which it has adjourned-but will de lay it in order to give Congress another op portunity to act upon the subject of the Louis iana complications as a political question, thus removing it fromn judicial review. - - COYSECRATION OF BISorI- GRoss.--It.

OUR I51IST LETTER. tI)'sn., April iu, 1873. Victory has waited on the banner of the peo ple- the Catholic people-in county Tyrone. It is true that Captain Corry the Orange land lord candidate, has been declared elected by a majority of thirty-six votes over the tenant right man, Mr. Macartuey. But the fact is, that through an inexplicable blunder on the part of the returning officers, some 240 votes were ''" invalidated," and of these, 180 were given for Macartney and only sixty for Corry. If all the votes given were counted, the former would have had 3,283, the latter 3,199, and, therefore, there would have been a majority of eighry-four in favor of the popular candidate, instead of there being, as there is -for the present at least-a majority of thir ty-six the other way. I say " for the present," because there is a rumor that Mr. Macartney intends to question by legal process the inva lidity of the rejected votes, and it is by no means certain that if he does question it, he will not be successful in ousting his opponent. But even if the present result is to stand, the virtual victory of the pseople must be acknow ledged, and will be felt severely in the Orange and landlord camp. Nay, even if Captain Curry were in a majority of thirty-six, it would bt a virtual defeat of his party. For just'con sider. hlere is a county whose representation has been in the undisputed possession of the Tory Orange landlord faction from time im memorial. There has not been in it till this present mon.h anything like a contested elec tion, for at least fifty years. The late Mr. Corrv sat for it for more than forty years un interruptedly. In fact, the two leading fami lies in the county-the family of which the Earl of Belmnore is the head, and the HIamil tons-here at every election put up their men and get them elected without any question whatever. Sole, suddenly we lind one of the Belmore'a-for Captain Corry is a brother of the Earl of lIelmore-opposed, and actually punr, 1 minori.y of eighty-'tiuir, and techni cally in a maujority of only thirty-six! The .xplan:Hation of this snrprising piece of busi ei-s is simply this. The tenant voters were mure I thralls until the ballot system of voting can into operation. They could only vote aaliln|r tleir landlords at the certain risk of b ie tin out of their homes, and under . t " ! c,:I+:u-.+s;LIu.e, they naturally- enough I no. +..n L !.n I,.Ittriea! convictionus, and al lowe. I;ti,.itubrdl full awig. Now, however when .. nitllurhs can't mai:t., out how they vote, thivn us natturalvly i-e. n in their might pud strike ,htovi at -i i' . tii" I.lighting as cendancy of thli iit :. : . - :,-l i..stuers. You utay be sum tt,. h . ,.., "t.", : u: " iown in the monh.:' ibis Tyrone victi..:. i- inot 'only a popular victory ; it is also at '. thoti c nl nationalist victory. For it is iquite certin thlat all or nearly all who voted for Macartney, were Ca tholics, and all who, voted for t~c.ar·n-were get nine Orangemen. You may 1,. sure the Orange men polled to the last matu in favor of their candidate. If this be so, they have been proved to be in the aminority, and it is mani festly a delusion to seppose that Tyrone is an Orange county. When I tell you that the reg istration of Catholic voters has been grossly neglected, that thousand Catholics can be added this year fo the registry of votes, and that in the late contest there was no great in ducement for thenm to put forth their strength, yet that even so they managed without any fuss to beat their opponents, it is easy to im agine what they can do at the next election. As one of their priests said in Qmagh on Mon day evening last, they will put forward and elect two genuine Home Rulers and Tenant. Righters, and add their fine county to the list of those constituoncies which will achieve the liberation of the country. Some surprise may be felt by some that the Catholics have been able to win the victory, and it may seem incredible that they will or can achieve a greater one on the occasion of the next contest. And no doubt the surprise and incredulity would not be altogether nn natural, considering the fact tht the repre sentatives of Tyrone have ever and always* been Orangemen, that it has always been spo ken of as an Orange county, thatits Orange inhabitants have always conducted them selves as if they alone constituted the popula tion. But the fact is that for very many years past the Catholics have outnumbered all the Protestant sects united. and these kept quiet only because their landlords and magistrates and governors being Orangemen and having the power to oppress, they could not exeroise their political rights without great danger to them selves in various ways. Now, when they can do os,, they immediately show what Is the true political condition of parties in the county. I here venture to predict that at the next gen eral election, several other northern constitu encies which have hitherto been without the slightest question set down as Orange, will come forth full-fledged Catholic and Nation alist constituencies. A great surprise is in store for Orangemen Englishmen, anti Home Rulers, and all that tind of thing, A vigorous eftort is now being made by our Irish Whip to injure the Home Rule move ment, by representing it as hostile to the movement for the settlement of the bducation question. The Eireing P'ost-the one bribed organ of the goverjment in that county-has always gone on this despicable tack and is now especially at its dirty work with as much vigor as it is capable of, which is not much. A Mr. John Carroll, of Earlsratt, county Kil kenny, wrote a letter the other day to the Freeman the s6bstance of which may be guess ed from its heading-" Home Rule vs. Denom inational Education." The document having contained several falsehoods, Mr. O'Neill Daunt, of the Home Rule Association, felt himself forced to reply to it. Of course, he utterly demolished Mr. Carroll. But though this is a desirable result, I think it would have been better to let that Individual alone. The thing such West Britons most desire, is to be noticed at all. If they are replied to once, they go on writing ad infinitum, and that is just what they want to get an opportunity of doing. But since Mr. Daunt determined to no tice Mr. Carroll, why did he not choose anoth er way of demolishing him than that of argu ing with him? Any argument would be thrown away on such a man; and, therefore, he should merely have pointed out that this man is simply an old Keogh-and Sadlerite--one who wrote in 1851 in favor of such traitors as Keogh, and wrote in pretty much the same way as he does 1now-is, in fact, and has al ways been a political sham, cheat, humbug, charlatan, and, as such, should not be listened to for a moment by respectable people. Another piece of gross wrong and injustice, has been practiced on Mr. MacAleese of the Ulster Exraminer. Ie was committed to prison as a first-class misdemeanant, and hitherto first-class misdemeanauts in these counties have been confined in a pretty comfortably furnished room, have had their room cleaned out by an ordinary prisoner, have been al lowed to read books and bapers, to have a fire, to see their friends, to transact their business, to supply their own food. At this present moment a gentleman named Skipworth com mitted for contempt of court in England, con nected with the Tuchborne business and com mitted as a first-class misdeneananut, is treated -n the way I above described. But Mr. MscAl eese is treated as an ordinary prisoner. lie is not allowed to see his friends-even his wife; he is not allowed books or paper; he is not al lowed to tranlsact his newspaper business; he is fed on the prison fare; his hair has b jn cropped close; and he has been coumpelled--- a fltal measure ofdegredatiou-to wear the pris on dress. I need not say that this circumstance has excited fresh indignation throughout Ire land. Althoifugh it is nearly a week since the matter was brought under the notice of the governmentt, the governmlent does nqt appear to have as yet done anything to put an end to the outrage anld the scandal. .t. .lc. " I nee the day at hand," said Gen. Mauteuf fel durilng the recent debate in the Prussian Diet on the ecclesiastical bills, " when the power of the Crown will in its turn be called in qnucstion.

Last Monday-the day set apart by the Ladies' Memorial Association for the decora tion of the graves of Confederate soldiers was celebrated here in an appropriate manner. The places of business were generally closed, and many of them exhibited bodges of mourn ing. The immense clouds of dust that hovered over the city throughout the day deterred many people from joining in the pilgrimage to the Soldiers' Rest; still there was a general outpouring of the people. The street care were crowded, every available vehicle in the city was called into requisition, and all the avenues leading to the cemetery were thronged with pedestrians freighted with floral tributes. Not a grave in the "eternal camping ground" was neglected; upon each head-stone hung a green wreath, and every lowlj mound was covered with flowers. The incomplete monu ment, and the mound upon which it rests, in the centre of the Rest, were covered with flowers, garlands and scrolls, inscribe to the memory of soldiers who sleep in distant fields. The oration was pronounced by Col. Thos. II. IHerndon, a gallant defender of the Lost Cause. I find in the R;gistrr a brief bnt excel lent resume of the leading points of his address, which I append : le approached his patriotic. task with a touching allusion fo the character of many of those whose graves were before him. Stran gers, unknown heroes for whom no mothers., sisters, or widows planted flowers, but who at this solemn, patriotic festival were the coun try's honored guests-though dead. A higher sentiment of patriotic love and devotion re cognized them as glorionulyalptized in blood, sons of Southern mothers. This, he said, was our part of the general tribute to the Confed erate dead wherever they fell, wherever they repose-from Gettysburg to Mansfield-on land or sea. But there was a greater signifl cance in this ceremony. It was a vindication of principle, a lofty reassertion of the faith in the justice of our lost cause which animates the great heart of the people, lie wished to say nothing that would grate harshly on the ears of any or engender animosities . liHe but spoke to his thenue, he but unbarred his heart. We love our dead -we respect ourselves. We have been arraigned as traitors, stignmatized as "rebels" by self-styled historians. Rebel lion is selfish; its spirit is greed of power and ambition. The nobler spirit of patriotism is inspired by faith, supplorted by honor and do votion. Who shall say that Lee and Jackson had not these 7 Time will vindicate us. We are the friends of our dead. We who can speak and act comne to testify against the stig ma of treason sunght to be branled upon them. We swear at is not true; they were brave, honest, devoted men, who proved their faith by the highest test-death! We are no ashamed of thorn. They have fallen, but we stoop by them to raise their memory in honor and love. Did we not it would be shame to us. And our spi its are yet aglow with the memo ries of the days when Lee led his dauntless legions to victory and Semmes made the name of "Alabama" immortal. Battletields bury men, not rights. The principle for which we fought lives yet, in the loveof Southern hearts, in the memory of the past, in the stories which mothers tell their children at their knees. Lee surrendered an untarnished sword. IHe sur rendered the policy of resistance, not the prin ciple. The speaker closed with a graceful allusion to the devotion of our ladies in their constancy to these memories, and their efforts to raise the mtonument whose beautiful pedes tal was now ini their aiidst. Trute to her his tory, womlanl was last at the cross onl which perished the hopes of the South, and tirst at the graves of our departed brave to resuscitate the mnmortal memories ini which the hopes of a future South still live. To-day begins the month of May, the fairest and sweetest in all the year, because it is the month consecrated to Mary, fairest of the chil dren of men. 1Her shrines, in every land and clime, will be garlanded with the loveliest flowers of the May, and from them will ascend prayers, and petitions, and acts of consecratio that will bear ,rich fruitage of favors. Iow full of beauty is the month of May ! We had a most refreshing shower of rain this morning. It was sufficient to allay the dust with which we have been afflicted for some time, but it will require plentious show ers to satisfy the thirsty vegetation. The Rlegister gave, notice a short time ago that it had disposed of its city circulation to W. I'. Barlow. Most people believed that it was simply a ruse designed to out off "dead heads." But delinquents and dead-heads learn ed this morning that it was a bona fid business transaction, Captain Barlow having assumed charge to-day, and relentlesly cut them of. This arrangement is a great relief tethe paper. Tnasus. Ten thousand emigrant, left Llverpool last week for the United States Expected Arrival of Persecuted German Sisters. When Bismarck commenced his infamous persecution of the Church in Germany, no lit tle consolation was derived from the certitude which existed in the minds of all Cathollc that it would be beautiful in two ways; drst, by reawakening the zeal of our co-religionists in that country, and, secondly, by sending to us what we must need, zealous priests and religious to aid in the great missionary work of our IHoly Church. That the perse cution has already infused new life into the Catholics of Germany, and, indeed, of the world, our columnegive testimony weekly. We have also had the pleasure of an nouncing the arrival in this country of many priests driven from home By the se vere laws enacted against them, but so far we have not seen the advent annohuced of any of the good and holy women belonging to Orders agairtst whom the brutal laws were di rected with equal force. VWe are happy to state that for New Orleans has been reserved the honor of giving welcome and refuge to the first of these good women who seek on our shores what they were denied in their own country; the privilege of sacrificing them selves for the welfare of others. The steamer Frankfurt left Bremen on the 9th of April for this city with eight Sisters of the "Congregation of Christian Love." This order is numerous in Germany, its principal object being the education of the young. The mother-house is at Paderborn, i t Superioress be ing a Sister of the celebrated Catholic German orator, von Mallinkrodt. The Sisters who are coming are from Sooest, a town not many miles from Paderborn. Bismarck's interdict upon the religious orders has involved the Sis ters of Christian Love, as they are supposed by the authorities to be affiliated with the Jesuits and, as being danrgro-s to the great German Empire are no. longer allowed to teach. To the Rev. Father Bogaerts, pastor of St. Henry's parish, we are indebted for this valua blo accession to our already numerous corps of religious who devote themselvs to the cause of education. On their arrival they will take charge of the female departmentof St. Henry's German-American IProchial b hool, which is situated on IBeltin street, between Maga rine and Live Oak streets, lith District. Great preparations are being t"ldo to gives these Sisters a welcome proportionate to their sa rilicos and worthy of the cause for which they suffer ; a welcome that will show them that our happiness at receiving then is as great as was the sorrow experienced by their fellow countrymen at parting with them. The scene at their departure is described as follows by a correspondence in the Berlin Ger mantia of April 2d : ,nocl, March :31.-This day the ". Sisters of Christian L-ore," from the mother-house of Pa derborrr, left our venerable city. These Sis ters had been teaching for the last live years in the elementary schools of our city, with a surcca$ which obtained for them unuversal as teem and admiration. Like the Jesuit Fath ers, tire Sisters are compelled to emigrate to a foreign lanud. They are bound for New Or leans. Some people do not reflect,- that by similar measures ia new blonw r -ac- time struck in thro face of the majority of the peo ple. This is shown by the great sympathy which the fate of the Sisters has called foeth in the whole city. At their departure the vast space of our railway station was thickly crowded with people, all of whom, even .the ordinary laborers bad donned their festive garments. Tears glittered in the eyes of many. When the train left, enthusiastic cheers burst forth, from the assembled crowd, and the waiving of handkerchiefs seemed to have no end. Many of the pupils would not refuse themselves the pleasure of accomlpany ing their revered teachers to the next station. Farewell Bisters, until we may see you again ! The German Empire will no doubt rery soon need you again. " When the summer day of youth is slowly wasted away into the nightfall of age, and the shadows of past years grow deeper and deeper as life wears to a close, it is pleasant to look back through the vistas of time upon the joys and sorrows of early years. If we have a home to shelter, or hearts to rejoice with us, and friends who have been gathering around our fireside, tjien the ronugbplases of our wayfaring will ti worn and smoothed away in the twilight of life, while the bright sonny spots we have passed through will grow brighter and more beautiful.
