SEW OBLEANS. BSNDAY. OVEMBER 2, 1873. ILTIN FROM ROME. A SPEECH OF TUE HOLY FATHER. Roxu, Oct. 5.-A deputation of the Cath olic Young Men's Society of the Immaculate :onception went the other day to offer heir homage to the Vicar of Our Lord. It ncluded Canon Bartolonl, editor of the "oma; Antologia Illustrata, the Marquis Ladrea Lezzssani, Signor Joseph Lezzani, ount Joseph Barbiellini, and Signor Lupi lebastiani, etc. The Marquis Lezzani read he address; after which his Holiness, who coupled the throne in the Salla del Irono, epited to the following effect: "I have ead in certain journals-not in the LTnita 'attolica, nor in any Catholic paper, but in ertain revolutionary organs, for, as you :now, I am condemned to read the bad tapers as well as the good ones-I have ead, I say, that they now mean to get the stire possession of Rome, so as to restore 'aganism here again just as it existed in he days of Nero or Augustus. And as they Enow that they cannot carry out such a lIan as long as the Pope stays at Rome, herefore those men of the Siecle want to trive the Pope out. Thanks be to God, hey will be prevented from accomplishing heir design. It is by the prayers of the :atholics that such a calamity will be Rarded oif The Lord has placed at Rome ,he See of His Vicar on earth; and He will lot allow the destination of this city to be to changed. Old Rome, the Rome of the Emperors, is really fallen : all that is left ,f it is merely a few columns and a few itatues, which people dig up here and there imongst the ruins. But you may be quite lure that it will be impossible to pull down :he Rome that is now; namely Christian Rome. " Do you, then, my children, pray, pray :onstantly, for the Church. Before I leave you, I wish to give you my blessing; and ,he blessing of Christ's Vicar, unworthy as be may be-has its value. I therefore bless you and your families : I bless your labors and your hopes and your future. Benedictio Dei, etc." TIIHE FEAST OF TIlE PLEBISCITE. On the anniversary day of the sham pop ular vote that gave Rome to the Sabalpine usurpation, a demonstration of loyalty to the Pope was made by many friends of the cause who assembled at the Vatican. ANOTHER SCANDAL. The Sindaeo of Rome, Signor Pianciani, is a devoted partizan of the present usur pation and a bitter enemy of the Catholics. le is all the more so because he is an apos tate. Pianciani once wore the soutane, and aspired to be a Roman prelate. The other day he sent orders to the Religious men and Sisters who teach the schools at the Baths of Diocletian to attend at a dis tribution of school prizes that was to take place at the Capitol. He well knew that they could not come. All their principles -nay, even common decency-the pro ceedings that were to take place, the songs that were to be sung, the speeches that were to be delivered, made it utterly im possible for Religious to show themselves on such an occasion. Pianciani, however, affeeted to be indignant at their refusal, and denounced clerical ignorance and nar row-mindedness. He at once decreed the immediate expulsion of all the Religious from the convents which they occupied. Next day, the Syndic's agents came to the convents, and informed the Monks and the Sisters that they must be turned out forth with. The Brothers had one hour allowed them to prepare for leaving their homes ; the Sisters were indulged with two hours. There were affecting scenes amongst the girls of the Nuns' schools. The children clung to their good mistresses and cried violently at the parting. The secular mis tresses, who came in worldly fashionable attire to take the place of the Nuns, tried to pacify the girls, but in vain. The Sis ters, twenty-four in number, have received a temporary shelter in the Monastery of St. Hubert; the Brothers have been taken into the establishment of the Borgo, which belongs to the Pope. THE ARMENIAN CIIURCI. News has arrived from Constantinople that the Porte has come to the determi nation to recognize the Catholic Armenians as a distinct religious community from that under the governance of Mgr Kupelian, the neo-schismatic. The Catholics, ate, ther, fore, to be re-instated in their right., nod nothing of the question now remains save the settlement of matters of det il. Tihe band of France is said to be perc tible in this improved state of afftire. THE POPE'S PRELATES. A circumstance happened on the occa sion of their reception which shows how vigorous the memory of the Holy Father still is. Amongst those whom the Marqais Lezzani presented to the Pope was the Canon Bartoloni, who, many years ago preached a course of sermons in the Church of the Carthusian Monks, near the Baths of Diocletian, of which heas Pius IX., was an auditor. When the Pope saw Padre Bar toloni he immediately addressed him in the kindest manner, saying : " Ah, Father Bartoloni, I know you: I once heard you preach at the Carthusian Church, on the Feast of St. Bernard." The members of the deputation were all delighted at this epalrecognition of one of their members by the Holy Father. THE PLEBISCITE ANNIVERSARY. The festival of the Plebiscit was observ d at Rome with very scanty demonstra ons of public rejoicings. A few flags and illumination of the Corso were all the utwatt signs of festivity. The Voce della arit, says that the state of the country is ery alarming in some of the provinces. urders and robberies are frightfully on e increase, and the police seem powerless provide for " Is publica sicurezza." At errara/a stronghbld of the "regenera ors" of Italy, a whole family had been urdered by robbers. In another house, respectable man was found with his roat cut. Two of the police in going their unds, were set upon and butchered with ives. One of the chief banks in thq ty, in a central position, was entered and bbed by bandits at 2 p. . There have so been many incendiary fires, and no y has been arrested. Onemight almost y that ruffianism reigns unchecked at errara. DEPUTATION FROM CIVITA VECCXIA. On the 25th ultimo, the Holy Father re lped epatationfro Civlta Veochia, restal the "&e for be Promo Whla marking on the chequered existence of man upon this earth-how our life is made up of an alternation of joy and sorrow, weal and woe, success and disappointment, the Holy Father went on to say : Nevertheless, let as trust in God. You see how many subjects of bitterness come in upon us from Italy, from Germany, from Switzerland, and other kingdoms and pro- t vinces, where so many men are banding together to afflict the Church. Now, I do t not tell you that all these evils will soon pass away; I no not tell you that we are I on the eve of delivolance and of triumph ; but I do tell you that God will surely show Himself, although I know not the moment when He will work the miracle." The Holy Father then dwelt upon the im- t portanco of the early education of children in religion ; and, in reference to the nu merons audience of ladies before him, spoke of the duties of Christian mothers. Then, goingback to the state of Christen dom, he said:--" One of the most noted in fidels of the last century recommended that the last king should be strangled with the entrails of the last priest. In our day the infidels do not use this language, but t they are doing their best to turn the words t into facts, and they who call themselves moderates allow themselves to be led on wards, and they would put into execution if Almighty God permitted them. Men walk resolutely in the paths of inequity ; and the clergy are the object of hatred in Italy as well as in certain countries of the North of Europe, where the Government is invading the office of the Bishops, punish- * ing the good and rewarding the wicked, especially those who cast off the easy yoke of the Church and voluntarily put on the fetters of a human ruler, who will bear heavily upon them with his iron hand." The Pope then went on to speak of tirhe Italian Government's prohibition of the pilgrimages, under pretence of danger of r cholera infection.; contrasting that pre tence with the liberty allowed to vast multitudes in cities to assemble in theatres where blasphemous and licentious per formances were permitted, nay, encouraged by the Government, " All," said the au gust speaker, 1" is done against God ; all is done for the devil." The discourse con eluded thus : " I exhort you all to practice courage, firmness, and constancy, oppose everything that conscience condemns. Lift up your eyes to heaven; implore the Di vine succor, and you shall bear a voice saying : " F'ear not them cwho kill the body, yet cannot kill the soul; but fear, rather, Ilim rho can destroy both soul and body." London Tablet. The London HomemsRulers and the General Election. The Home Rule London Election Com mittee has agreed upon an address to the Irish electors of the London Metropolitan constituencies. It states : "There are ten contituencies in this metropolis, and they send twenty-two members to parliament. In each of these constituencies the Irish vote now on the register offers us a most en couraging basis for future operations, as may be learned from the following :-Lam beth, out of 36,784 on the register has. 4500 Irish voters; Marylebone, out of 35,576, 5000: Chelsea, out of 17,408, 4,500; Greenwich, of 38,311, 3000; Southwark, out of 19,416; 4500 ; Tower Hamlets, out of 32,546, 6000 ; Westminster, out of 17, 408, 3500; and the City of London, out of 20,185, 3000. The total number of the electorial votes of the metropolis was 268, $06, and of these the approximate estimate of the number of Irish electors was 44,000. This shows how great a power the Irish electors are in the metropolis of England. Therefore it was stated that a definite policy should be laid out for them, so that at the day of reckoning they might know whom to support and whom to reject." The address then goes on to say, " An opportunity has at length arrived when we may materially contribute to the estab lishment of the parliamentary indepen dence of Ireland. Soon there will be a general election throughout this realm. Irishmen scattered throughout Great Bri tain and especially those resident in Lon don, can in many places, by their united votes, return to parliament members pledg ed to restore to Ireland hlit full parliamen tary powers, The Irish vote, if properly directed, may decide many an election. We are now a power in England and Scot land. The Irish vote will be required at almost every polling booth. Let us take exampl'e from the English pohiticiaos. Our duty is plain. It is to support such candidates as pledge themselves in writing to vote for the restoration of a par:iament to Ireland and the release of the political prisoners. It has been proved by the late commission sent to Ireland by the English Laborers' Union that untold and incon ceivable distress prevails amongst our people, growing from the land monopoly, the absentee landlord, the oppressive po lice. the suspension of the constitution, the long imprisonment without trial of many of our countrymen on bae suspicion, and tihe wretched habitations (of one room each) in which half a million are obliged to dwell. No measure of an English par liament can remedy those sufferings except the repeal of that Act or Uuion which, in 1800, suppressed our leg-slature, extin guished our trade, scattered our wealth, and exiled, and continues to exile, the bone and muscle of our peasant population. We therefore call upon you to unite and make the Irishl vote powerfal in the borough, and to support, before all ,otlhers, the candidate who will declare for am nesty to the Irish political prisoners and Home Rule for Ireland. I, any borough where such a candidate is not in thie field we will nominate a candidate to the con sttauencies wh're there is a chance of hts success. We wish to support the advano ed Liberal party of England, but if they refuse to us these concessions we advise ou to allow the Tories to come in, eitllher y openly supporting them or by splitting the Liberal interest. We look upon Mr. Gladstone's cont;onons, and even bitter, opposition to the release of the pohlitical prisoners as unworthy a statesman who stands at the head of the English Govern ment." The reporter of a Nashville paper who, mentioning a young lady's decease, touch ingly alluded to her as " one of the bright eat jewels that ever glittered in the diadem of an earthly home: one of the purest stars that ever gleamed upon the frontlet of our social skies: one of the sweetest flowers that ever bloomed in the garden of earliest association," has had his salary increased to four dollars a month, half cash and the balance in cordwood, -.W e epec, svaithmg. sad ste prepared for . ... ~ -- . ,i, , ' A Plan of State dnesation. BY PROF. FONTAINI. [From the Picayune of October 12th ] Only a brief outline of a plan of State edu cation, which was elaborated many years ago, is here presented. It was prepared for the State of Texas, after a careful examination of 1 the educational systems of Germany, Sweden., Denmark, France England, Scotland and of the New England States, and .presented in various lectures delivered to the Texas Legis lature, while I was chaplain of the Senate, dring different sessions. Its leading features 1 were adopted by the State, and the plan was working well when I removed from it in 1859, although its efficiency was somewhat limited by the incorporation in the plan of some of the objectionable features of the common school syetems in operation in theolder States, I and which, in its incipiency, I could not pre vent. It is based upon the following simple a!d just principles, which adapt it to the condition of independeut anl enlightened States: 1. It is not the duty of a State to teach reli gion. The ministers of God, whoever they may be, are required to teach His truth. A free State, whose citizens are Jews and Gen tiles of many sorts of beliefs, as well as Chris tians who profess 105 various forms of faith, cannot in its governmental capacity meddle with their conflicting creeds, or trespass upon their rights of conscience. Its Legislature cannot with propriety'decide who are orthodox teachers, or appoint school boards to deter mine questions of contraversy argued by a constituency so variant in their religious opinions. 2. It is the duty of the State to punish crimi nals, and to protect all classes of obedient citizens in their lawful pursuits, in order that they may support themselves and the Govern ment which they have established for their oammton good. 3. No State can be stable and prosperous whose power is in the hands of uneducated voters; therefore, a fund sufficient for their education, and for those whom they elect to represent them, ought to be provided. 4. If this fund is provided by means of tax ation, or by the sale of public land or other i common property, it belongs equally to all of the citizens of the State and to their heirs who are the children of the State, each one of whom is entitled to an equal share of it, or of the educational benefits of it. 5. Where the dominion of conscience begins, the civil power of the State should end; it is, therefore, wrong to force a parent to send a child to a school whose teaching, or religious, or moral influence he does not conscientiously approve. Supposing that an educational fund sunli ciently ample is in the public treasury, with out discussing the mode of accumulating or of managing it most efficiently, I will consider the question how it can be utilized so as to satisfy the judgments and consciences of the citizens who have paid it for the education of their children. Some of those taxed to raise this fond are Jews who are not willing for their children to be coerced or allured by any plan of State education to becoming either Christians or in fidels. Many of them are Roman Catholics, who will not have their offspring trained by those who despise their religion, and who they fear will endanger their salvation by teaching what they regard as heresy. Other classes of citizens belong to organizations of more than 105 different kinds of churches or religious communities in this Republic, while others are skeptics and independent free-thinkers, disso ciated from all the rest. Yet a majority of this discordant multitude who compose the body politic termed the State are parents who desire conscientiously all their offspring to be educated, patriotic and useful citizens. They ought to be supposed to be equally scrupulous in regarding the dictates of their consciences in relation to their education. It is impious and tyrannical to coerce them to send their chil dren where they do not wish them to go to re ceive their mental and moral training. In ad dition to the impracticable element of ortho doxy, which has rendered abortive or very inefficient all the plans of State education heretofore tried in the older States, there is another disturbing cause with which all our present plans are troubled, especially in what were the slave States. It is the education of the children of the emancipated colored peo ple. It cannot be doubted that they ought to be educated; and if it is possible for them to receive it, an education should be given to them equal to that which is bestowed upon the white children, for they also are the children of the State. But many conscientious parents would suffer the extreme penalty of any de spotic laws rather than mingle their chil reun with those of another race in a common school. I have no time or space to discuss the ques tion whether a plan of State education should embrace " mixed schools." The plan here pro posed will eliminate whatever difficulties in the way of education they may present, and it will rid the State eifectually of the task of meddling with the subject of religion and the rights of conscience. 1 think it will be accept able to all classes of our citizens. and be equally beneficial to all the children of the Sta:e, no matter what may be their comlplexion or parentage. I do not fear that any honest and intelligent citizen will object to it when he weighs well its imparlial j:stice andl prac ticability. I um certain that It will be adopt ed ultimetely by every State in the Union, and I sincerely hope that the next Legislature will enact it. 1. The law should requ-ire all minors be tween the ages of six and twenty-one years to be registered in the office of the Tieasurer of the State. The usual limit of' what is termed the " achola-tic ageo" of tlhese children of the State is sixteen years. This should be ex tend.ri. to twenty one, in order that al'ter they have left the primary andt ucadenic schools, they msay be aided fromi the fund to complete their education in sonic State college or luni versity. 2. BMake it the duty of the Treasurer, in ad dition to his annual report of the condition of the finances, to report semii-annually, to the Governor of the State, the amount of the edu cational fund, and the proplortion of it to which each minor or child of the State is en titled, a hch pro rata share shall be ascertain ed by dividing the whole sum by the number of registered childreu, which reports shall be published. 3. Neither the parents, guardians, nor chil dren, nor any otner person, shall draw this fund, or any part of it, from the treasury, ex cept the teachers of the children. Whenever any teacher or teachers of any registered child shall present to the TLreas-,rer, in due form of law, a certificate, witnessed by the parent or guardian of the said child, and properly signed and sealed by any jndn3ial officer legally quali fled to attest the said certificare, attestintg that he or she has received instructuion as a acholar from the said teacher or teaches during the past year, the Treasurer shall pay to the said teacher or teachers the portion of the ednca tional fund to which the said child is entitled, or so much of it as is due for the edlocational ser' ices rendered. It is easy to perceive that this simple plan is just to all classes, no hatter what may be their complexions or creeds. It makes every child a child of the State. Any one of them, whether white or black, Catholic or Protestant, Jew or Pagan, can go to any school or college in the State, and the institution will be paid for the tuition. If the children do niot go to school, their part of the fund will be lost to them; but it will bie uneed by those who are educated. This will make their education sof ficiently compulsory. If parents or guardians do not like the school most convenient on acount of the creed of the teachers their mode of Instroction, or the conduet and char rater of the upsil, b can seend their obil drnso ear otr,~ b e priva3,t* or otherwise, white, colored or mixed, which they may prefer, and the State will pay for their tuition. This plan will aid every de serving institution of learning and every I meritorious teacher in the State; but the worthless will be abandoned for want of pa- G tronage. It proposes no sudden or radical II change in the present common school system, bt it will grdually improve antil it Is satis factory. The school buildings now owned by the State, and the teachers commissioned, may be employed as they are now, as long as they are useful. But if the property of the State r now need for educational purposes should not be needed yireafter, it may be sold, and the r proceeds may be applied to increase the fund tl and lessen taxation. The wisdom of the peso le can amnold the plan as it many ie necessary. Its adoption will be anr inestimable benefit. and it will ieiesnt any collision of educat inal ,., plans between crhurch:lid State. o EnwAil FONTAINE. a N, w Orleans, l.t , tl.t. 9. le73. t --- ---~ 1bIPORTANT SURGICAL OPERATION IN CoRx - A young girl, fifteen years old, has just been dischrarged from the North In timary after undergoing a surgical opera tion which was performed in her case, if not for the first time in Cork, at least for C the first time with such complete success. At five years old the child began to suffer L from white swellings about the right knee, which occasioned a contraction of the limb, and made it impossible for her to set her foot fairly on the ground. In course of time she suffered so severely from the ma lady that it was found necessary to place her in the Infirmary, and on examination of the limb it was decided that either am putation should take place or the knee joint be cut out. -The latter alternative was chosen, and the rare and difficult operation was performed with complete success by Dr. N. J. Hobart, visiting sur geon to the institution, assisted by the F usual surgical staff. First, the natural covering of the knee was laid aside, the kneecap and joint were then cut out most skillfully, and the end of the thigh and leg 1 bones having been brought together and the leg thus straightened, the knee cover ing was replaced, and the limb bound up. I It united perfectly, and all disease having S disappeared, the child row walks with ease, the slight deficency in the length of' the limb being made up by the addition of a thick sole to her boot.--Cork ExIariner. An English inventor has secured letters patent for an incombustible paper, and fire-proofink. Though the paper is not regarded as absolutely indestructible by fire of any degree of fierceness, it is yet claimed that under such circumstances as fires in houses, factories, or other buildings, it is "ordinarily incombustible." The pulp, which is manufactured in the usual way, is composed of vegitable fibre, one part; asbestos, two parts; borax, one tenth part; and alum, two-tenths parts. These ingredients, having been previously ground and finely divided, are brought to the consistency of pulp by the addition of water in proper proportion. Not only can writing-paper be thus manufac tured, but a coarser substance for the bind ings of books or the inclosing of manu scripts. The fire-proof ink can be used either in writing or printing, and is made according to the following recipe : Grap hite, finely ground, twenty-two drachms ; copal, or other resinous gum, twelve grains; sulphate of iron, two drachms'; tincture of nut-galls, two drachms; and sulphate of indigo, eight drachms. These substances are thoroughly mixed and boiled in water, and the ink thus obtained is said to be both fire-proof and insoluble in water. When any other color but black is desired, the graphite is replaced by an earthly mineral pigment of the de sired color. Moralizing on the recent " financial panic" in Wall street, the Nation says: " If a Roman or a man of the middle ages had been sudden ly broughb into view of the scene, ho would have concluded, without hesitation, that a rutlhless invader was coming down the island; that his advanced guard was momentarily ex pectedi; and that anybody found by his forces in possession of Western Union, or Harlem, or Lake Shore, or any other paying stock tr bonds, would be subjected to cruel tortures, if not put to death. For neither Roman nor me dia-val could understand a rich man's being terrified by anything but armed violence. Sua eca enumerates, as the three great sources of anxiety in life, the fear of want, of disease and of oppression by the powerlul' If he had seen Wall street brokers and bankers last week trying to get rid of stocks and bonis, lie would, of c,inrse, have supposed that they were not poor or feared poverty; he wonth have judged from their physical acti7ity rbat they were in perfect health, so he would have been driven to the conclusion that sonme barbaiian host, commanded by Sittimng Bull or Red Cloud, was enteriug the city, and was breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the ownu ers of personal property." Any one looking upon it "could hardly avoid iceling that a new plague had been sent atnong men, that there was an impalpable, invisible force in the air, robbing men of their wits, of which phil osophy has not yet dreamied "-in other words, " panice." A writer in Our Monthly has evidently been inside a comnposing room, if he has not " dug a living out of a case." lie thus sums up the result ot his expel ience : Working for forty editors and scores of authors, every one ot whom is as sensitive as a sore thumb, and as lively and interestiung as a hornet, no wonder that printers die young, and only pachydertuatoms, grizzly, mulimh ape cimene get their share of life: " appy) infants, early blest ! Re.- in peaceful slumber, reot: lescued from the Ihamlmmis. and jeers. Which iocrease with groaing years.' The writer wishes he could offer himself as san awful example of the perils which envuiron the man who meddles with cold-type. A tbuhoroughly trained printer should have had a stepiuotber, and then a stepfather, and then have been bound out t:, a ranuner, and then have married a scolding wife and lived in a smoky bouse, anid theit have bad i. family of bables who were afilicted with the colic. lie should have added to all this discipline a thorough knowledge of science, art. law, laso guages, theology, Listory and biography. If. in addition, he hcs a v-ciour-luuokig counteu ance and an amiable disposition, he may st.and some chance with those authors and editors; but the probabilities are, after all, they wilt worry hium to death."
