Wis., on Saturday last at the advanooed eae o sxty-six s years. Born at Viena young west wi with his parents to Italy, his father Beving t obtained some onlce in te eourt of Medesh. 1830, and appointed oort chaplain at . Mar gar's. Becoming acquainted with the late Bishop Roeatti on one of that prelates many visits to Rome, be resolved to come to America. C Bishoptosetti took sick ina Paris, returned to Italy and died; Father Melober, notwithstand-l ing, continued his course and arrived in t. Louis in 1843. He was for a time pastor of a small congregatlon at IAttle Rook remaining at that post until it was erected into an epis- a copal see. After that he was called to the care of St. Mary's parish in this city, of wboh he retained charge up to the time of his elevation to the bishopric of Green Bay. hi Bishop Melober was a very zealous and la borious prelate; and the many and arduous n labors of hs young diocese hastened, if they did not directly cause his death. When seven years ago he entered upon his high duties, he found sixteen priests in his i:docese, one year ago he reported forty-ight priests and twelve C clerical students. This is a severe blow for that young diocese, h and the loss of so sealous and holy a prelate will prove a veritable calamity to the Church in the Northwest. We have not learned the a precise name of the malady of which Bishop a eicher died, and e n only say that his end t was not unexpected for days before it arrived. o He was fortified by all the sacraments on 'tnrday previous. May the Good Shepherd r whose o8e he filled and whose life be so closely imitated on earth, bestow spon the departed prelate the" enge " of a blessed we come.-St. Loris WaJehsema. Mother Gallway, eaprrioress of the Sacred Heart, died in this city on the 91st inst. She was born in Cork, Ireland. When twenty years of age she came to Kentucky, and there after settled in New Orleans. At the age of 1 thirty-two she entered the Convent of St. Mi chael's. In 1843 she became Mother Superior ess of the same convent. In 1848 she went to St. Louis. In 1858 she came to Chicago. In 1865 she was made Vicar Seperiorees of the Western Province. She went to Paris in 1863 to assist in the election of a successor to Mo ther Barrat, the foundreas of the Order, which I was established in lo41. In '64 the foundrems died. In 1966. she built the convent of Mary ville, near St. Louis. 1er health failing, she removed to Manhattanville, New York, becom ing Snperioresa there, but again had to yield, and in 1;72 came to Chicago.

Missions in China and Japan. [Freeman'a Journal ] The .lissiin Catholiques learns fronm the mis. sionsries in Japan that their situation, up tc September 22d, had not changed. They wera not persecuted, but they only enjoyed a sort ol quasiatolerance. In a few weeks they expected a revision of the treaties. The Japanese openly declare that .they will not petition fot religions toleration. Mareover, the French Minister is the only one of the foreign repre sentatives who takes any interest in this meat ter. Mr. Ling, the American Minister, was very devoted, but his Government rescalled him joet at the very time when his presenet was most needed. If God does not come to the assistance of the Missionaries, they will have little in the future to hope for and moob to fear. This state of things proves the n*eessiti of inserting, in new treqties, stipulations gear anteeing to Catholie Japanese the fullest free dom of worship. Christian powers would the have the right, and it would become ther duty to interfere if tbe Japanese Government fails in its engagement. Apropos to the above, we give the following letter to the editor of the Japan WeekIl Mail " 8i-With reference to the letter which ap peared is your issue of August 30th, signed Philalethes.' I would beg to say that I think it calculated in somne degree to give rise to a misconception of the attitude of the Jepanse Government in respect to Christianity. "'Philalethea' ays: 'The first of these ia that Christiamnty is now tolerated by epecisl edict, and the publia notices warniog the peo ple against it have been removed.' The latter of these assertions is perfectly true. The tno tices in question have been renmoved together with certain others forbidding mnurder, artson, robbery, sedition and other ollffences, and if the removal of one class of notices is to be inter preted into a toleration of Christianity, then, bya parity of reason, the removal of the others moust be held to be a sanction of thebo crimes forbidden by them. Besides, it is abstmolutely untre that 'Christianity is now tolerated by special edict,' and as far as the publio utter . ances of the Goveroment are concerned it is no morq permitted now than it has been any time thtees two hundred years. .'Now, if thed Japsnese Government had done no more tte *t removb the edicts forbidding Chriatiaenity, tbgether with those forbiddlinop murder , retobbery and soditie, I admit that rh en no more be eonsidered to be tol~ is Jaan than can murder, arsoo, robbery sad sedition. But such is far from being te casea On the eontrary, the Japaasee Govwernment have faithfully and honorably feflllled to the letter the pledge wbale they gave some months sinace to the foreign repreeentstives of remitting all pun lshment which had been Inflcted on subjects of the MikLdo on saooont of their having adopted the profession of Christianity. II 'Phlnlethes' will take the trouble to inquire of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Japan, or of the English Consuls at ilogo and NagasakLi. respectlvely, he will, I venture to say, And this statement confirmed. I may add that the banilbed Christians then remaining in saptivi ty were sent back to their homes at the cost of the Japanese Government. us "I Phllalethee' can show that a similar course has been pursued with rsfernee to all persons who haysve been sentenced to punieb memt on aouneat of having bun convicted of sOb murder, arson, robbery or sedition, I will ad- me mit that my argamout ameunts to othing. to Till then I must consider that be rather an- t fairly represents the ease b "The rswpoeiblJapaamse Minister ha, if I am not misinformed, stated to the effect that so long a oonverts to Christianity do not give trouble to the Government, the Government will net interfere wth them, and it is enrtain 1>. that Jppnesse in numbers attend ehureh open lyat Haiodate and elsewhere. But I would an doubt whether ' Philaethes' would admit that q a Japanese might with equal impunity commit In mrero, aren, robbry or sedition. of "I am, years obediently, Vamrrae." muRDnR ow Two CAOLIouo MImsiroanmuS Camt.--Ones again (says the North Chins Herald) in the province of 8seclnen, a Catheli O French missionary has been murdered, tboough ' he was provided with a passport from Pekin in perfectly good order. The Rev. Pere Hue, pa accompanied by a native priest named Tay, o went to the city of Ki'en-kag-hi'en with the is intention of taking possession of a small house do bought with the express permission of the high authorities of the province superior to to the local mandarin, who, himself, seemingly acquiescing in the project, had previously in- fo formed the mismionaries that nothing hindered of -their entering his territory. This mandarin, named Kouli, has always shown a spirit of vieo - lent hate against foreigners and ill-will to ut Christians. whom, in spite of the Imperial p edicts, which generally he did not poet up, he el bad constantly refused hitherto to admit gl e within the limits of his sabprefeeture. As to w h the oity people, they were all most peaceful it and shored a good spirit towards the mission- of aries, whom tey bad oftentimesbefore invited d to come and reside amongst them. Suddenly, e L on the 6th of September, the residence of the it a two missionarfle was invaded by $ mob, who, d rushing upon them, dragged them along , the stret, beating and wounding them tl E 1e they had in their hands but two dead bodies. 1i . Naturally the mandarin eoni, to whom sus- C pioion poslt strongly as the antbor of the g riot, stopped quietly ihis yPlen theoughost, and adid not attempt to rest the outbreak. me It is to be hoped the fore gn legations will y at last join in a common un derstanding to pu t - Ian end to such frequent, illegal, and abomina- d -f ble crimes. e SLeattsr of the mry rather to reasigner Ledechow.- i to ski, Aitieap o Pese. e Venerable Brother,-If at any time it s e has been God's pleasure to show to men t oh that the Church a edifice is Divine, and f a thateverywbere all attacks directed against , y- it by the powers of hell and the malice of t ne man must be in vain, surely now, Vaener - able Brother, is this truth made clear to + 'the sight even of those who do not wish to a see it, to-day He has permitted e-erythin" i to conspire for the destruction of the r o Church. We see contemptfcalumny, laws, and the powers of this world arrayed t against it, the effect of resolutions long i F. formed and brought to realization by pro- ( tracted labor and developed on the part of ' e. the im, ' cable sect, which has a!most everywhere possessed itself of supreme a e power. IHer adherents are marked as sedi .17 tions; her Bishops are condemned by the oi civil tribunal s agitators ; they are loaded - with fines deprived of their functions and " expelled the country ; tha Religious Or ders are suppreset4, t' _ clergy is gagged, and, by arbitrary measures, prevented from exercising its ministry ; education of 't3 the youth in the spirit of the Church is forbidden, in order that, on the one hand, the population may not be confirmed in 0 3the principles of religion, and that, on the u is other, the training up of able and faithful - servants of the a.tar may be prevented. In order to annihilate the glorious name of God, the property conseecrated to God r is robbed ; even the highest dignitary of 1 5s the Church is kept in bondage in order ' that, though utterly despoiled, he may not govern the Church with freedom, according *50 to his powers. All this, Yen. Brother, ' makes your heart bleed, but it likewise i094 rends Our own; for though we feel the ited greater portion of the afflictions that assail by you-so that by the weight of your per secutions your health hasbeen endangered -We see on the other hand, and beyond this, the evil spreading over tile whole of Europe io its whole length and breidth, and over other parts of the world likewise. mis- Nevertheless, the very magnitude of the p to evil, and its ehtraordieary diffusion afford were us the sure hope that deliverance is close rt of at hand. For if God, when lie desired to ted save the world, permitted so many diaboli cal perversities-permitted men to assail aneh even His own Son-we have grounds of belief that the same God is by the efforts mat- of hell let loose preparing an amelioration was of the state of things-preparing a triumph iled of the Church, at this moment deprived of nic all human sncoour; and that by the vial sth ble manifestation of His Almighty power He will compel even the proudest hearts into obedience. Furthermore, Venerable arm Brother, yea make the tokens of your love ree. the dearer to Us, the more you are afflicted then with troubles, and magnanimously sacrifce yeverything, even life itself, to the perform ance of your duty ; and the more resolute ly and staunchly you fight for the Church, in the more lively is Oar desire that you may l: speedily be restored to complete health. The gifts from your diooeans, which you ink have forwarded to Us, have forced Us to o a admire your ardent charity, but have, at ose the same time, occasioned Us regret, be cause these alms have been given by those se who are themselves smitten on all aides by icil severe tribulation. Reoeive, therefore, the pe assurance of Our deep gratitude, you as 't well as your clergy and your-people, oo ther behalf of whom We pray fervently to God, o, th:at Ie may give them the same-spirit, the which He has given to their pastor, and iter- like constancy in great peril in which they hen, are at present.

Felice Cavallotti, a man of vi noted Republican principles, wag lately w 1 tto under prosecution by the Crown for having g erial published seditious writings. He was p, he elected Deputy for Corteleona and Bel- a dmit gloes, and. the Government prosecution f Sto was in consequence suspended. As Deputy, at cefal it was incumbent on him to take the oath tk alon- of fidelity to the King, before he could ed exercise his privilege of speaking or sitting f the in the Chamber. This oath is of course who, contrary to Repblican ideas, and it was o supposed thai Cavallotti weoal refuse ita However, of tie 47th of November last, a w adies. letter appeared in the Cpiti.e, in whieh i ga- Cavallotti declarejhimself still a repnb-, Sthe lican, who knew na-Kiag bthe nation, a reak. and who looked oe the oathl as null and will void before his coseeienee as contrary to Spsi the popular sovereignty, in formal eontra- L mina- diction to his pledged word to his constite eats, and opposed to the will and the a rights of his electors. An oath, moreover, , ghew- Is, said Cavallotti, " always, in its every > essence and nature, and nader whatever form, a religions act; as such it is univer- e zo it sally recogntsed, and therefore it eansoat men bind absolutely those who by reason of their and free opinions, donot fetter their onsciences ;ainst with religions acts." It used to be said ce of that oaths must be interpreted eor iao - a ener- postatis but Cavallotti thinks they may beh ar to taken according to the sense previously ish to declared by the perseo taking them. Aod thing if in his case the oath should become a wmere, f the comedv, it is the fault, according to Lim. o` laws. those who make the oath compu'sory, azd rayed employ it " to surround, with an aureo!aof long sanctity, institutions which require re- i pro- form," .and to paralyse the force of de art of mocracy. Language like this cond .not :most escape comment. On the day following, prome namely on the 28th hNovember, when Ca a sedi- alUotti appeared in the Chamber, and was y the about to take the oath, a deputy, named oaded Lioy interposed with a request that as and Cavallotti asould be required to say is Or- whether he maintained his declarations agged. touching the oath. The President of the rented Chamber then offered the formula to tion of Cavallotti, who attempted In vain to ad rch is dress the Chamber be'ore swearing. At hand, last he took the oath, and immediately sed in aserted that be maintained the declsra on the tions he had published the day before. aithful The President then said :-" Honorable rented. Cavallotti, you have sworn, and therefore name have contracted a pledge which a man of o God honor cannot break." But Cavallotti re ary of joined :-" I am unpledged." Toue oath iorder itself is thas worded:-"I swear to be may not faithful to the King, to observe loyally the Lording Statute and the laws of the State, and to rotber, exercise my functions as deputy with a sole kewise view to the inseparable interests of the el the King and the country." The Crown law t assail yers have since demanded sad obtained ir per- the leave of the chamber to resume the ogered former process against Cavallotti. It is beyond not the first time that the matter of oaths 'ule of has eniged the attention of the Italian reedtb, Parliament. In 1865, when sinme Profes tewise. sors of the University of Bologna gave up of the their seats in the Turin Parliament rather afford than take an oath which was contrary to is close that of fidelity which they had previously sired to sworn to the Pope, Ca.ar Cantu proposed iaboli- to abolish the oath altogether. lie was o assail supported by the Baron D'Ondes Reggio, ands of who said:-" I have not the heart to de efforts prive of ofiee those men who are so faith oration fal to the Pope, and I feel more inclined to rinmpb deprive the persons who are so ready to rived of wcar, or rather to forswear themselves. ae vial- Honest servents who refuse the oaths, are power more useful to the State than dishonest hearts servants who freely take them." Again, in nerable 1867,-at Florence, Count Crotte resigned mr love his seat because he was not permitted to afflicted qualify the oath of loyalty to ".the King, macrices the Statt, and the laws, "by adding," in arform- so far as they are not contrary to the laws olute- of God and the Church. He was subse Thnrch, quently re-elected, and took the oath is on may his own mode with a reservation made bealth, before or after the act of swearing. The ch you Premier Minghetti was not so scrupulous, Us to for he twice swore fidelity to Pius IX., aye, at once in 1847, as member of the Consulta, at, be- and subsequently in 1848, as Minister of ythose Public Works under His Holiness. The idcs by conduct of Cavallotti has been fiercely ire, the criticized among his frends and his foes. von as Some say he alone has had the courage to pie, on declare openly the sentiments of honor to God or dishonor-entertained secretly bIy all spirit, the Revolutionists or Republicans. Itn may ir, and be asked what possible reliance can be ch they placed in the guarantees to the Pope, when em and the oaths to Victor Emmanuel and the Sanni- Statute are turned avowedly into a farce, of the to the very face of Parliament. afrshb azuRn or CONVENTS. glofy Possession was taken on the 1st of De f Oar cember of six contents, namely that of the u and Moinks of St. Jerome at St. Onotrio, where bosin Taso die·d he Trimtarian Convent of St. S Grisogonu the Hospital of St. Grovanna della Malva; Sta.
