saW ART.nAN. lVNDAT. MARCH 29 1874. L1vr = OMK ro OI. DEATH OF CARDINAL BARNAIO. Rox, February 28.-The Sacred Col lege has lost another of its members. On Tuesday, the 24th of February, Cardinal Alessandro Barnabo expired at the hour of half-past four in the afternoon. His death was not altogether unexpected. A year or two ago he bhad been attacked by gout in the bead and latterly he became almost entirely Iºlind. But be attended to busi em-, notwithstanding his illness, and did not cease visiting the Vatican until within ten days of his disease. At the recent re ceptions of Pius IX.,, Cardinal Barnabo was usually seen supported by the arm of General Ksnaler, the Pope's Minister-at War. The immediate cause of the Car dinal's death was an accession of gout to the stomach. He was born in Foligno on the 2nd of March, 1801, being the eldest son of the Marebese Enrico Barnabo. The Barnabo family is a very ancient one, and when the arst Napoleon took away to France the cadets of noble Italian houses, Alemandro Barnabo was among the exiled and was placed in the Ecole Polyteeniqune or military school. One of his comrades at that school was Mgr. Regnier, the present Archbishop of Cambray. Alessandro was the eldest of nine children, of whom three sons and two daughters died before the Cardinal. The oldest surviving brother is Oraso, a Canon, and in deacon's orders only. Aleasandro Barnabo, when he re turned from France, embraced the ecclesi astical profession and displayed talents of no common order. II. was promoted to a Canonry in St. Peter's, and in July, 1847, became Secretary of the Propaganda. In this onerous and diffiBcult post he continu ed for nine years. Cardinal Fransoni, Prefect of the Propaganda, died in April, 1856, and Barnabo, then Secretary, was chosen his successor. lie was created Cardinal Priest in the Consistory of June, 1856, and took the title' of St. Susanna. He was member of the Sacred Congrega tions of the Inquisition, the Council, Rites and Ceremonies, and Extraordinary Af fairs. He was moreover, Protector of var ious Religious Communities and of the Irish College in Rome. It was chiefly, however, by his government of the Propa gauds that Cardinal Barnabo became nown and respected. He was the life and heart of all the Catholic Missions which owe allegiance to the Sacred Congregation de Propaganda Fide, which are scattered all over the world, and which are guided and controlled very much by the Prefetto Qenerale of Propaganda. Cardinal Bar nabo was modest, kind, and unassuming. His advice was rarely sought in vain. He Lessessed in an eminent degree the gift of discrimination of character, and was firm and just. He was laborious and patient, and thus his penetrating genius was the better able to master the daily mass of correspondence arriving from every part of the globe, and containing problems to resolve, perils to be avoided, and impor tant cases to decide. His memory was prodigious, and his knowledge of human nature was as remarkable as his vast pe were of recollection. Cardinal Barnabo was as a father to the Missionaries. those marvellous Missionaries of the Catholic -Church, whose labors and lives are spent with such prodigality of sacrifice in the work of disseminating the Faith. To many of them the parting counsels receiv ed from Cardinal Barnabo were treasures of comfort in dying hours of difficulty or danger. The demise of Cardinal Alessandro Barnabo will bring sorrow to many hearts, and mourcing for him will be felt even in the farthest isles of the Pacific. Thousands of living Catholic Missionaries were edq eated almost under the eye of the diseased Cardinal, whose connection with the Pro paganda (as Secretary and Prefect) lasted for more than a quarter of a century. The mortals remains of the deceased Cardinal lay in State in his apartments in the Pro paganda College the day after his demise. The funeral functions were performed in the chapel of the College on Friday the 27th. The catafalque was placed in front of the lligh Altar, and Mass was celebrated by Dr. James Gould. Bishop of Melbourne, in Australia. The Dies Irv, Hosanna in Excelsis, and Libera Me were beautifully anne by the choir of the College, assisted by ..ou.e of the members of the Pope's own choir. The chapel was filled with ecclesi astics of every grade and nationality. The present laws forbid the interment of the Cardinal's remains in the church of his title. His body was therefore carried in the evening of Friday to the Campo Vera no. There it will provisionally remain until its final removal to the fhmily vary tog-place at Foligno. It is rumoured that Cardinal Bilio will be the new Prefect et the Propaganda. THE COLOSSEUM OUTRAGE. Expiatory services on account of the eacrilege in the Colosseum still continue. On Friday, the 27th, about sixty or seven ty persons met at the Church of St. Bona ventura, near the Colosseum, and went through the devotions of the Via Crucis. There was no interference on the part of the Questura, although four officers of that department watch attentively the pro ceedings of the Catholics, and took notes of them. AIOLITION OFP ILI.EGITIMACY. Salvatore Morelli, the same deputy who proposes to emancipate the femaleo sex from the fetters of matrimony, has present ed to the Italian Parliament a 1Bill to ab olish the odiousdistinction between legi timate and illegitmate issue, on the ground of its contradiction of the rights of nature. All children born out of wedlock are to take the mother's name, and to rank as legitimate. No prejudice is to effect tlhe 4'moral position in society" of such off apring. The father may at any time he pleases give the children his own esurname in addition to that of the mother, and he must contribute to their maintenance. This change is to be carried out, asocording to Morelli,*"in homage to justice and the dignity of man." THE ExaQUATUCIt. A discossion has taken place in the Chamber of Deputies respecting the Exe quator. The Holy See has at no time rec ognised the absolute right of temporal governments to examine and alter the Balls ar appointment to Bishoprics and ecolesi Soflices. Catholic sovereigns, to whom the privilege of nominating to church Isneos was conceded by Concordats, havebhd the inspection of Balls as matter 4Of eenrtesy ad convenience. Butthe Pope 4mlever pelnitted the alteration of Bulls for ecclesiastical appointtments ade by the Curia Bomana. In Italy the exhibition or forwarding of Bulls to the civil authori ties is strictly prohibited. But there is no concealmint practiced, and the nomina tions are public. The recently appointed Bishops have uniformly declined to present their Balls for the purpose of demanding the Ezequatur and obtaining the tempor alities. But immediately on their preconi zation in Consistory they give notice to the civil functionaries, who generally reply that they will issue the Exequsatr on pre sentation of the formal documents. These documents are never presented, and the Bishops attend to their spiritual duties and trust to Providence for their support. The Syndic of Cagliari, when Archbishop Balma was appointed to that see, was anx ionus to strengthen the Archbishop's power of doing good and sought to induce him to forward his Bulls. This the Archbishop refused to do, but after consulting the Pope, he caused the Bulls to be placed in the sacristy, where any, person might In spect and copy them. The Syndic for warded a copy of these Bulls to the Gov ernment authorities; who then wrote to the Archbishop to know whether he de sired the Exequatur. The Archbishop gave a verbal reply, to the effect that he would take no part in presenting his Bulls and demanding the Exequatur, but stating his wish to be recognized as Archbishop if that recognition could be had without vio lating his conscience. The Exequatur has issued. TIE roPE His Holiness continues to give audiences every day in the week, and his state of health seems highly satisfactory. He re ceived this week deputations of Poles and Lithuanians, and visits from several dis tinguished foreigners. The Papal Court has of course been affected by the deaths of Cardinals Tarquini and Barnabo, and by the illness of Cardjnal Capalti, who lies in such a state as to preclude all hopes of his recovery. Cardinal t-apalti was marked out as the successor of Cardinal Barnabo at the Propaganda by reason of his great talents and ability, but for some time it has been evident that no favorable termi natioq to Cardinal Capalti's ailment (apop lexy) could be expected. It is coni dently rumored that a new creation of Cardinals will be made in Easter week, and that Archbishop Manning will be among the recipients of the purple.-Lendono Tab let. IFrom the Chlcago Tribune.J. When Chatles Sumner was elected a Senator, in 1851, George S. Boutwell was Governor of Massachusetts ; Henry Wilson, President of the Massachusetts Senate, and Nathaniel P. Banks, Jr., Speaker of the House in the Massachusetts Legislature. Sumner and Wilson represented 27,803 Free Soil votes, and Boutwell and Banks represented 36,363 Democratic votes, in "c oalition," against 57,364 Whigs. The "coalition" csocked the established order in Massachusetts in more ways than one. it was a raid by young and aggressive men, of whom the current inquiry was, " Who are they t" It was a trick in politics so :hrewd that subsequently, by common consent, the way to its repetition was barred by constitutional amendment, in troducing the plurality system in all elec tions with a fixed number of seats in the Legislature. To explain hw it was done: The " Coalitionists' voted separate party tickets for Governor, and united on candi dates for the Legislature, electing in the House, 210 members against 174 Whigs. The majority in the House filled the vacancies in the Senate, which was made to consist of 27 Coalitionists and 13 Whigs. Then the two bodies, in concurrence, elected the Governor and other State offlcers. It was comparati'vely easy to carry out that part of the programme which involved Boutwell's election as Governor, and it was also easy to elect Rantoul (Democrat) to the unexpired six weeks of the Senatorial term; but to elect Sumner, an Abolitionist, to the full Sena torial term, there was the rub. The con test was protracted at the State House from January into May, a large number of Democrats scattering their votes, fearing to go on the record as voting for an Aboli tionist, but fearing more that by absenting themselves a Whig (Robert C. Winthrop) should be chosen. In that Legislature were, we believe, Ben Butler and Caleb Cushing, Democrats, not openly voting for Sumner; ahd Samuel Hooper and Henry L. Dawes, Whigs, voting for Winthrop. Finally the Legislature framed what was famously known in Massachusetts for some years (until abolished), the " Sealed-Ballot act" for all elections; and, on the first count of votes under the " sealed ballot," Charles Sumner was found to be chosen. When, subsequently, Caleb Cushing was in Pierce's Cabinet, and Ben Butler was the Democratic candidate (against Banks, Republican,) for Governor of Massachu. setts, and when Democrats had patronage and a Southern constituency, responsibility for Charles Sumner in the Senate was readily shirked by an appeal to the record of -iria voce votes, and the secrets of the "sealed ballot" were ever sealed. The coalition was in power two years, but could not survive the Presidential election of 1852; and with the ascendency of the Democrats in the nation, and the reascen dency of the Whigs in Massachusette, it look ed gloomy enough for the young men who had so bravely seized a state in defiance of hereditary rules and tradition. Who, theen, could have predicted that these young men of 1851--Sunmner, Boutwell, Banks, Wilson, and Burlingame-were so largely to fill the pages of history since written I Complaints are often made of the difficulty of procuring ged pens, but those who will call upon A.

The bravest nation of Europe has just received, at the hands of its destroyer, the last death-blow. An imperial skase has conferred upon General Kotzebue the title of Commander in-chief and Governor of Varsoviana-Var seviana, not Poland. The very name of place and people is to be no more. It has not escaped public notice and pub lie Indignation that this cruel and most un necessary outrage took place on the very day that Francis Joseph of Austria (now on a visit to the. northern bear) was re viewing a nssilan regiment in the square of St. Petersburg. The Emperor of Austria is a strange gentleman ; he calls himself Catholic, and oes much more than desert the head of the Church - quietly but fearfully is he storing up for himself "wrath against the day of wrath." The ruin of the Hapabnrghs is as sure as doomsday. But now, since the dastardly act of Saturday last, Francis Joseph must have utterly lost caste even with those whom his past acts of treachery to the Sovereign Pontif did not much affect. The Emperor of Austria feasting with Russia and drinking to the oblivion of the Polish nation, and passing in glorious re view those regiments which are armed, ready if called upon, to make her homes desolate I Has the man no gratitude - no care for decency t-no brains t Is he without heart as well as without head i Is he so anxious for a "friend at court" that he will throw away all that makes life tolerable in order to obtain one t Let him; but he shall not be able to defer, by any amount of sneaking, "candid court esy," his well and long-merited chastise ment. When Sobieski, King of Poland, rescued the imperial city of Vienna from the Turks, he called the day on which he had achiev ed his victory the happiest of his whole life. He was so proud to be the instrua ment of Heaven in saving a Catholic peo ple from the sword of Mahomet, he sent to the Pope the standards he had taken, with the following letter : I came, I saw, and God conquered. Austria repays the act of her deliverance by a cruel meanness without parallel even in this age of falseness and treacheries. Well, we must have patience and wait God's time ; but it is a grievous trial to flesh and blood. Our soldiers are nowhere, our hopes are disappointed, our friends fall away-the world and the devil are them selves surprised at their success. Everything, except the cause, is lost. This remains, and therefore all remains. It is true that Our good knights are dust ; Their swords are rust ; Their souls are with the saints, we trust. But the cause survives ; and "God is able out of the stones to raise up children to Abraham." And whatever comes to pass it will always be seen that valor and truth and devotion and sacrifice will be on one side, and treason and numbers, selfishness and violence on the other. Over the tombs of the heroes of the Church it is written that they "Held faith and honor far more dear than life." But Sir Walter Scott has given ut beforehand an epitaph for Francis Joseph : Shame and dishonor sit By his grave ever; Blessings shall hallow it Never, oh, never! THE ART OF SPEAKING.-Man is natural ly a speaking animal; and a good style is merely that accomplishment in the art of verbial expression which arises from the improvement of the natural faculty by good training. The best training for the formation of style is, of course, familiar intercourse with good speakers and writers. A man's vocabulary depends very much always, and in the first stage perhaps al together, on the company he keeps. Read the best compositions of the most lofty minded and eloquent men, and you will not fail to catch something of their nobili ty, only let there be no slavish imitation of any man's manner of expression. There is a certian individuality about every man's style, as about his features, which must be preserved. Also, be not over anxious about mere style, as if it were a thing that could be cultivated independently of ideats Be more careful that you should have some thing weighty and pertinent to say, than that you should say things in the most polished and skilful way. There is good sense in what Socrates said to the clever young Greeks in this regard, that if. they had something to say they would know how to say it; and to the same effect spoke St. Paul to the early Corinthian Christians, and in these last times the wise Goethe to the German students "Be thine to seek the honest gals, No shallowsoundlng fool , Sound sense inds utterance for itself. Without the critic's rule , If to your heart your tongue be true. Why hunt for words wita much ado I" But with this reservation you cannot be too diligent in acquiring the habit of ex pressing your thoughts on paper with that combination of lucid order, graceful ease, pregnant significance, and rich variety, which marks a good style. But for well educated men, in this country at least, and for normally-constituted men in all conun tries, I should say, writing is only a step to speaking.--Oa Slf-Gul(urc. B Pro, fcssor Blaeckic.

There is no genius in life like the gen ius of energy and activity. You will learn that all the traditions so.current among young men-that certain great characters have wrought their greatness by an in spiration, as it were-grow out of a great mistake. And you will farther find, when you come to measure yourself with men, that there are no rivals so formidable as those earnest, determined minds which reckon the value of every hour, and which achieve eminence by persistent application. Literary ambition may inflame you at cer tain periods, and the thought of some great name will flash like a spark into the midst of your purposes ; you dream until mid night over your books ; you set up shadows and chase them down-other shadows and they fy. Dreaming will never catch them. Nothing makes the "scent lie well" in the hunt after distinction but labor. And it is a glorious thing, when once you are weary of the dissipation and ennui of your own aimless thoughts, to take up some glowing page of an earnestthinker, and read deep and long until you feel the metal of his thoughts tinkling on your brain, and striking out, flow, flinty flashes of ideas that give mind light and heat. And away you go, in the chase of what the soul within is creating on the in stant, and you wonder at the fecundity of what seemed so crude. The glow of toil wakes you to the consciousness of your real capacities; you feel sure that you have taken a new sleep towards final de velopement. In such mood it is that one feels grateful to the musty tomes which at other hours, stand like curiosity-making mummies, with no warmth and no vitality. Now they grow into the affections like new found friends; and gain a hold upon the heart, and light a fire in the brain, that the years and the mould cannot cover or quench. RAILROAD ACRoss THE ANDEs.-One of the grandest works of this age is now being constructed across the Peruvian Andes, connecting the Pacific Ocean with the Am azon River by means of a railroad, and opening the whole interior of Peru to the commerce of the world. Hitherto that rich and immensely productive country, so graphically described in the United States reports of Lienuts. Herndon and Gibbon, has been virtually locked up to foreign trade; the transportation of one ton of freight from the interior of Peru to the sea port, Lima, costing three times as much as the transportation of the same amount of freight from Lima to Europe. The rail road in question was began in 1870, and has already cost over $70,000,000. It is estimated that it will be finished in 1876. Over 10,000 laborers, mostly Chinese are constantly employedon it. The enormous difficulties that have to be overcome in the construction of this road may be estimated from the fact that the Andes rise there to a height of 20,320 feet above the level of the sea. The road itself rises 17,000 feet, and is by far the highest railroad in the world. Even the Mont Cenis Railroad sinks into insignificance when compared with the Peruvian undertaking. The road has also the highest viaduct in the world, it being 580 feet long and 300 feet high in the centre. It rests on three pillars, of which the first is 166, the second 183. and the third 253 feet high ; is built of iron and was manufactured in the United States' A MILE IN THIRTY-TVO SECONDs.-The following story of the achievement in re spect of speed, in an ice-boat on the Hud son, in the vincinity of Stattisbure last week, is told by the Poughkeepsie Eagle: "Thursday last the wind blow very fresh from the south,'"nd the owner of the new ice-boat 'Cyclone' determined to take ad vantage of the favorable opportunity for timing his yatch. The Hudson at this point is very wide, and at the course se lected its breadth is one mile. Having made every preparation for the feat to be accomplished, the reel-points were shaken out of the sails, and every stitch of canvas spread to the gale. With two men on the windward runner to keep the boat down to the ice, the helm was turned, the sails fill ed, and in a few moment, with every inch of canvas drawing, she was under fall headway. Like an arrow from a bow she daA*d away on her course, clouds of pul verized ice following in the sunrface of the river, and in what seemed but an instant the river had been crossed, and the mile accomplished in the almost incredible time of thirty-one seconds, being at the rate of two miles In a minute and two seconds. Persons on shore compared the speed of the flying racer to that of a meteor flashing through the sky and watched her movements with eager interest. The owner afterward put the boat through some movements on the ice, and astonished as well as paralyzed the lookers-on by sailing all the way across the river on one runner, the force of the wind throwing her over on her beam ends and raising the windward runner from ten to twelve feet above the ice." The man who thinks he can carry his boyish pranks into the serious business of life is not a man, and defrauds himself and his employer. "After work, play," That shouldsatisfy the most sanguine. "Busi ness before pleasure" is tile motto of the prodent man whose guide is experience, and it is sufficient for the novitiate in active life. lat it is despicable to see the younng mnan just starting in life so wedded to his formerenjoyments as to place them above present duties. There is no royal road to success any more than to knowl edge. He who would succeed must work and after all there is more real en joyment in work, which has a worthy ob ject, than in play or pleasure, intended to kill time. We remarked a few days ago to a business man whose present means are amply sufficient, but who worked really harder than any of his numerous employees, "that he ought to take it easy." Said he, "I am never so happy as when I have more than I can do, I may wear out in working, but I dread to rest out in idling." He was right; his work was a part of himself, a part of his life, and it was always faithfully done. To apprentices especially, this earnestness and interest in their work is necessary if snucess is ever to be obtained. A young Parisian gentleman has acquired a taste for the flesh of dogs and cats. Lately he feasted upon a large and well cooked Tom, and was soon after selped with un pleasant pains in the stomach. Tom was avenged. He had dined on a poisoned rat! The gentleman recovered, b"d now avows a preterence for orthodox beef and conven tional mutton. INSURANCE COMPANIES. NEW ORLEANS MUTUAL INSWRANCE COMPANT, Corner of Canal and Camp Streets.
