Such being the etaes, it is regret table than the information supplied by the 1ournals should be in so may instances anfestive and inooorret to a degree likely to lead to a groat deal of misappreanson., Perhape this was unavoidable.

Pioe weolse before Easter, Mias Collins who was p ioously . in the enjoyment o0 excellet health, was saddenly attaehed with a violent pals in tlahe bsad H.,_sa lerimge wereintense, andshe.elt, asehed soribed herself, as though a number oi sharp points were being driven into hem brow sand around her head. The pai, oeatinued all day and through the night, but as no importsaoo was pttaohed to it nothing was said ' about it. On that day wee, however the same symptoms c curved, but witL loger 'duration and, i that were possible, with greater intensity. On the third oceseion her torture was so severe as to reduce her to a state borderoing on lmeasibllty, and while she wa inL this condition she was additionally aMieted with pales is her bhands and 'et, but ae wounds or mars of wounds were visible. It was actually distresinog to those around Miss Collins to be compelled to witness her a InFy without having It in their power to rejeve it. The fourth time the young lady auered wss on the Feast of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin (April 4th), and then the wounds appeared on the upper part of her hands and feet, ond blood issued from trem. On Good Friday her sufferings reached a climax apparently, and it was thought im possible, humanly speaklng, that she could endure them, Indeed, it was the opinion of all who saw her at the time that her last hour had arrived. It was on this occasion that the wounds on the back of her hands looked as if they had penetrated through for corresponding marks appeared on the palms. 'That day week, when Dr. Morse saw her for a short time, and made a cursory examination of her hands, she suffered, comparatively, little or nothing. On the 25th of April, also, her condition was not very distressing. Next Friday, however, hur paius regained their oldlnten. sity, andherwrlthings, asbelay prostrate, smote the hearts of the beholders with the most acute feeltngs of compassion. Since then precisely the asses phenomena have been observed with unfailing regularity. The order in which they occur has always been the esme. Sometimes during the after noon of Thuraday Mias Collins experien es the exeoseiatiag pains in the head to which we have alluded. This eontnues, with little abotement or Interalasion, all nilbt, and on Friday phrtial lseasibillity, or at least, tdirnee to all her surroundings, Intervenes. The clsiee of her safferiogasp pears tb be reacbed when the wounds on her bands and feet open and bleed more or leas copiously. The wounds do not, how ever, show almaltanedusly. One hand gen erally suffers frt, then the other; and, Judging from her motions and the *eesay movements of her frame, the wound In her sidd opes last. Sometimes it is abselutely appalling to witaems her agony. Her lmbs beeome rigid ; ashe stretohes out her arm in the form of a nces whijst her cosatenance shows unmistakable signs of the torture to which be is put. Bat when the crisis is passed her fae, on the contrary, wears an erpreiselon of lebble sweetness and com psore, so that she appe? to be in a state of eastatio contemplation. We have 4aid that, as a generaLrulo, Miss Collina siuau.r ordeal commenees on Thnreday evenlng,but, to the taniahment of her frinds, she eabibted the premaani tory siges on the eveaning of Wednesday, 7th lnstant. She ansoWred all that nIht all Thursday nand all Friday, san on the last day it was fouid thab the wounds in her feet, which previouly appeared on the upper surface only, wenre visible also on the solos. We have now enuneratod thsfacts of the ene, related to us by the very best sathor ity, as they occurred and me ochurring and we shat say no more. It is net our province to prooonoco as to the cause of these oxtraorPdinauy phenomena, and we shall certainly Sot - be so presumptoug as to do so. We will merely state that Dr. Pawlikli, the young lady's medical attend and basa'qrefauly ninrtd all the uleveop. meonts. Hes' I in due time pulibh the results tf J& nahsr tions, and the verdrct of a gentimse of his high scientific attain aon intelligent and remmlotn p~abliac. Dr. Morsc-a l ; g something in the shape ofa report to the papers. lio oedeavoip to traoe Miss Collins' sufferings to a disease of the heart, .to which she was subject sometime sieee, bat from whichlob te nnderetand, the lady is at present en tirply free. Of the wounds he has little to , arnd hab,iittle, when it is carefully weirged, amaunts preoisely to, hta-be knows nothing at all aboat. thmo. This gentleman, aU we befbre ne tioned, was present on a day on which Miss Collies was nunsually calm and free from palo, and therefore his observations, were neces sarily incomplete and unreliable. We say this much withoeutthe slightest intention of derogatieg freem hiakill or good faith, and it only means that circumstasnes were against his forming a correct judgment. Perhaps one of the eamt singular features of the case-and cerTainly, on soleatilo prinelse, amef.thp most unaeounstable -is the rapiditj ds thoreuaghe'wih which Miss Collins recovers froms her alarming conaditis. -Oe would imagine, from the duration and indescribable inten sity of her seerilgs, that she weaold have to endure a leog period of phelesl and mental r on after the pain had.va tibed. Indeed, aider similar eiruomstas ces, the most robest and powerful man could hardly be expected to be able to rise from his bed. tYet atreage to sy, Mis Collins only looks a little wearied on Sat urday morning, and before the day closes abe is net only about her ordtnary avoca tions, but her natural gayety and cheerfl ness of disposition mauifest themselves without restraint.

The soules omi holy baptism, ean are destined to become ode day the compaleans of brlght angels in hearen. They are so dear ad precious i theeyes of the most Holy Trinity, that the Father gave Hisa only Begtton So; the Eternal Word, beeame as, ead'gave His blood as a rasem ; and the Holy Ghost deseends Into these souls for their sasoUld cation. Great, therefore, is the account which the Bishop will have bo reader, St whom these great treasures have been con fided. Unwearying. vigilance therefore, ardent zeal, and unbounded charlety guided by wisdom and prudence, must be the -bsra teristics of the Bishop. But conscious of my infirmities, never for one moment did I esuspect even that my obscure and lowly name was thought of in connection with a dignity so sublime, a burden so heavy. Hap py and contented is the venerable Cogrega tion of missionaries, founded by the illustri ous Doctor of the Church, St. Alphonsus, and in which I had passed so many pleas ant years; I had looked for no higher favor than to pass the remainder of my days in the sacred seclusion of the cloister. Yen can, therefore, better imagine, than I can describe, what were my fears when the en tirely nnlooked for dignity was imposed upon me; but it is God's will. lie who delights in using lowly and weak instra ments for His wonderful wolts, that all the world may recognise that it is the Hand of God, and not man, has been pleased to try than man's. For the Vicar of Christ, select me for an office fitter to angels' minis our glorious Poph Pins has spoken, adg In his command we mast recognise thei ble will of God. And in this reflection I am flled with confidence. For It is God who bas chosen me, not I who have chosen the sublime oice. Without God we can do nothing, but with Him we can do all things. For as Jonas wee reproved and panished, wben from a sense of unworthiness he fled from the grave eharge given him by God, so, my brethren, it would be wrong in me to be de jected and ast downa, now that I know through the voice of the Bovereign Postifft that I should undertake the dunties of sneb grave responsibility. For Be who called a David from his lit tle sheep-fold to wield so admirably the sceptre of ltarel, and esummoned the Apes ties from their shinog nete to the stupend oes work of uconverting a paganm world, will, now that He amile me to ratle thi vast diocese, give me all that2 inecessary to reader my relgh replete with blessings for my people. Confiding, therefore, in God, whoe voice I obey and reting ia the in tereemsion of-the Immacnlate Virgio, the motherof those souls for whom Her Son shed His blood, I unhdertake the aruduoeus duty of laboring for yonr salvation. Ye., my dearly beloved brethren, your saldvation, your welfare shall beaeforth be the only obttect of my labors anod of my life. Is the exerelse of amy inistry, I shall take fim for my moele Whi, Lhough the Lord ae Muster, yet could truly say that Hte ea ~o serve and not to be served. Like this Divine model of Pastors, I ashall regard no service too low or mieblal, where the welfare of my fleok is conoerned. He who received the greatest sinners with all sweetness and tenderness, and deigned to interrupt His grave diseouree that little bchildren might approach to Him in sweet famililarity, has taught me ion what manner I shall receive all wlho approach me. And as tihe Good Slhepherd espared Halmself no fatigue, and made every acritice, even to the shedding o' the last drop of lia blood, so may bretlhren, to pronrote your salvation, Ishal spare myself no fatigue, nor heai tate-to make any sacriflie. I anm consol'dl, loy brethren, when I re flOct on your good will, your seal lir roll gion, your love and devotion to y0ur pee tore, of which yen have livensnoab brilliant proofs. For you all I ibsll make ceastantly a re membrance of yo is my prpyi n, that God, the Father of Glory may' give you the spirit of wisdom and relatlou in the knowledge of him ; the eyes of your heart illamienaed, that ye may know what is t4he hope of his call; that in all things ye may be made rieh in HIma, e that nothing in isnAe gtbe wanting to yoe. ye u, my brethren, by our Lord eases Chbrist, and by th chbarity of the NolyGhost, tbatye help ae in your pryers for me to God, .tiat through God's bely grace I may be able to discharge properly thegrave duties lccambent on me asBhhop of this diocese.

[From the Dabht Nation, May 3.1 Only a few weeks ago our daily journals and the whole set of Castle politicians were in a altter of exeitement over the opening of the "new Dock" on the Royal Canal. The opening was effected amid much cere mony; soldiers and police In great num bers were ranged about the place; the ex tent of bunting displayed on the occasion was enormous; a small metal bridge was swang round, and a little steamer passed between the piers, bearing on her deck the Lord Lieutenant General and General In augurator of Ireland, with other official personages. Then there was a "flourish of trumpets," after which his Lordship, in brief terms, declared the "Spencer Dock" r open for business. This ceremony was r followed by a banquet and a series of pros perity speebhes; and nest morning there . were gaing articles on the subjeet in the f daily journals. One might Uatrally sup h pose from all that had been apeken and written In reference to the 8pescer-Dock a which is simply a littlaportioa of the canal a widened and deepened by some feet-that there Were any pumber of vessels in the ,t river waiting for the accommodation of the I. new dock, and that there was a great s amount of merchandise on its banks await s ing shipment. A visit to the place will a dispel any sneh notions. A more lonesome a spot one could not easily see about the a city. It is oceupied by two mud barges a and a small schooner, whose business there a is not readily discoverable. No doubt the - place will be useful, and was in some measure needed by the railway company who have had it constructed; but the im portance of the work has been enormously g overrated by the sponters on Irish pros perity, and the significance which they af Sfeet to attaeh to it is simply nareal. a On Thursday the Inaugurator-General was again at work, this time in opening a a small connecting line of railway in the s North. The usual twaddle of Irish proe. I perity was talked once more, and the daily press, as usual, gepeated it with variations Sand amplifietions. But while this dela sive and dishonest sort of chatter is going t on, there are coming at intervals from the r government pres instalments of an im portant governnient return, in which an other tale is told. We allude to the cen sus of Ireland for the decennial period end ing in 1871. Within the past few days the tables relating to the eonnty Longford f have been leased; and what is the tale [ they tell It isa tale of decay and ruin r the same tale which is being told for near i ly every county in Ireland. In the year 1831 there were in the county Longford 19,418 inhabited houses. In 1841 the number came down to 19, 145-reduction of 418. In 1851 the number had.come down to r 13,822-a falling off of 5,323 within ten years. In 1861 the number was 13,030, represent ing a decline of 822 inhabited houses within the preceding ten years. And in 1871 the number had still further fallen to 12,002-a reduction of 1,028 houses within the last decennial peried, or of 7,416 from the date of the census of 1 1831. In like manner has the population dwindled away. Between 1831 and 1841 the figures show a slight increase; since that time the decline has been continuous. In 1841 the population of the county Longford numbered 114,491. In 1851 it hat zien.o 82,348-a decline of 33,143. In 1861 the number was 71,694-a rednuc ties of 10,654 within the preceding ten years. And is 1871 the nu.ber was 64,501; showing a decrease of 7,193 since the date of the preceding censuas. These are very unlike statistics of pror perity. In no scotry in the world weould they be regarded as such, or takes to indi oate anything but the wasting away of the life and strength of the nation. In France, in Austria, in England, such fig urea would be looked on as ominous and alarming. If such a state of things ex slated, the rulers of the land would at once be called on to investigate the cause and arrest the progre s of the national deelen- I salon, and efforts directed to that end would most assuredly be adopted. But in Ire land we are asked to look on at the rapid I dwindling away of our population, not simply with indifference, but with positive I eatisfaction. Who are they that ask us to take so false and mlsehlevous a view of the caue; they are the foreign rulers of Ire. land, and their Irish party; and that fact accounts for the origin of the story and explatis its meaning. Itis true that those who maintain that Ireland l prosperitg tl a slarvelons de gree have make out for themselves sets of a igure which they delare afford proof poe- t ive of their cooclslons. These figures have referesce to the number of horned cattle is the land, to thqlisereased depos its in the banks, and the increased eoa sum lion of some exciseable articles. But c even if we accept the figures as accurate, ' they do not really sustain the view of the a case pt. forward by tltose peroone. Even r if it were true that the remnant whicb is left of the Irish popul.tion participate to some grxtent in tli flush of commercial aco tIvity, the increase of wealth, and the im proved economic oopditiove which, during. the past fifteen or twenty years hbave beon general amoug the civatiseq nations of the world, that circumstauce would not prove the state of affatrs in Ireland to be satisfactory. For it woUnd still be traula thatrselatvely to the progress: u ther satieas Ireland has ifallem to the rear in the mamlb of man." Daing that tilde the ouremse of trie and the accsrlltioh of wealth In England has been sim-l' iO mOus. OfFrnce the sainme may .,I" so great has the fnasecial strength. ceuntry become within, the last qusrar of a century that it has not been iosly hurt by the late tremeadoes war s the ine of unparalleled,. magnitude wibch bas been laid upon it. In Belguim, in Germa ny, in Russals in America, in the British colnies, the same sort of advanee has hes going on. In each and All of them (prer is more coin in cireulation than there was some.years ago, and some improvement has.taken plaece in the soelal condition of the people. Ireland has elighly felt the impulse of that movement; ahe has bene fted somewhat by the flourishing condition of her ne ibbors; but the extent of her gain is bht trivial, and when all the facts of her'eondition are taken into conidera tion they present to the minds of her ehil. dren occasion not for rejoicing but fmr sad ness; not -for eontent with the system on which their eountry is ruled, but fot hearty detestation of it. Under suoh circumstan ces it is . hard thing to be treated on every paltry opportunity to a prosperity speech from our- Inaugurator-General; there is however, some consolation in thefact that, notwithstanding the--responsive eloquence of the morning papers, the great majority of Irishmed known well what value to set upon such performances and perfectly an derstatd that genuine 4rosper:ty or real peace will never be known in Ireland until the management of Irish affairs i. taken out of the hands of the English Parliament. THE PAssIro FLOWx.-,-The history of this singular and beautiful flower is thus given in The Gardes: The flower was originally named Passifora, or the flower of the passion, by the Catholic priests who followed closely in the track opened up by Columbus to the new continent of Ameri ca, in order to attempt the conversioh of the aboriginies to the Cbristian faith. Many of these Catholic mislionaries were men highly cultivated in all learning of the time, and were consequently more or lees naturalists. As students of nature, we may imagine that they were muah struck with .the beauty and singular structure of this remarkable flower, which they found. growing in wild luxuriance and abudansoe over the rocks of Hispani ol, Cuba, and Jamaica; and also climbing the great trees to their tope, and hanging their beautiful foliage and blossoms in thick festoons from the branches. The structure of the flower, upon careful anal ysis, appeared to them a " miracle," whichb seemed to foretell that these new countries were foredestined to Christianity; for the strueture which they so much admired at frst glance was found, upon more careful examination, to contain, as they conceived, representations of the objects most olosely connected with the crucifixion, and the events which immediately preceded it. The season is eomiog when we shall see, by the rural wayside and in the flelds, the butter dies sporting in the sunlight, on their gossamer' wings, as we used to see them in childhood. They are always pleasant to behold, sad they are useful taonitors teaching us, as they silent ly do, to be cheerful and happy. They are as sociated in the mind with those other emblems of hopefulness as well as happiness, the flow ers. And yet these are not all of the qualities which the butterfly emblematises. It calls up thoughts in the thougutfol, which'are far frem nnmingled-thoughts which remind us of the transitoriness of life, as we have it here, and of all things earthly. In the delicate tints on their restless wings, as they flashingly reflect the sunshine, we may read, Pasing qway !' But we need not go Into the fields, or even the ural highways, to find butterflies. They meet us in the city at every turn, sporting their lives away, with no more important aim than that of their prototypes. They are surely not so useful. Nay, they arenot useful at all in the direct sense. It is only as sources of warning that they so become. They teac not hope. They rather, to say the least, tempt to despair -despair of the progress of our race in the elements of its true nobility. And were they not, after all, but exceptions to a rule, flitting sway their ephemeral existence, and so much of substantial utility and worth, we might aield to this temptation. But in view of the earnest lives which the good and the true are leading, we can afford to let these social but erflies sport their brief semblances of real life sway, while we look composedly on the scene. Show as a man who can quit the society of the young and take pleasure in listening to ibe kindly voles of age; show us a man that a ever ready to pity and help the deform Ad; show us a man that eevers the faults )tothers with a mantle of charity; show is a.man that bows as politely and gives he street as freely to the poor sewing girl is to the millionaire; who values virtue, not lothes; who shuns the company of such is oongregate the fair sexr or make unkind emarks of the passing poor girl ; show us i man who abhorathe libertine; who scorns he ridiculer of his mother's sex, and the i-poaere of womanly reputation; show us be man who never forgets for an instant he delicacy and respect due to a woman, n any condition or class-and you show us. true g'etleman. - Tihe young man, as he passes through Ife., advances through a long line of temp. mrs ranged on either aide of him; and the nevitable effect of yielding is degradation a a greater pr less degree. Contact with hem tends inosensibly to draw away from im some portion of the divine elecotric lement with which his nature is charged; ud his only mode of resisting them is to tter and ect out his "No" manfully and re olately. He mast decide at once, not raiting to deliberate and balanooe reasons; or the youth, like "the woman who delib rate is loa.e" Masy deliberate, without lecidiog; but "not to resolve,. i to re olvte." A perfect knowledge of man ia in he prayer, "Lead us not into temptation, mt deliver as from evil." No man can ever borrow bhimself out of lebt. If you wish for relief you must rork for it. You must umake more and pend less than yon did while you were mnning in debt. Rauecees rides on every hour; grapple it, nd you may win, but without a grapple Swilt never go with you. Work is the reapon of 4ronor, oand ihe who lacks the respon will never triamplh. Be the companion of vise, and you will onan be its siavs. INSURANCE COMPANIES. NEw O.LEANS MUTUAL INSURANCE ..
