The fate of the bill appropriating $3,000,000 for the centennial celebration in Philadelphia in 1876 was to have been decided by the House Saturday.

ADDRESS OF HON. THOS. J. SEMMES TO THE TO THE GRADUATING CLASS, LAW DEPART. MENT, OF THE UNIVERSITY kes OF LOUISIANA. Delivered in Grunewald Hall, Monday, April 27. se, .eir ihb the Gentlemen Graduates of the La'w cchool :-You my are about to commence the practice of a dig ;he nified and honorable profession. That success so, may attend your efforts is the sincere desire of at these who have been engaged in your legal education; be assured success will follow la in borions study, if accompanied by integrity in ta- the diligent discharge of your professional aly duties. There is no short road to eminence in the professsion of law; the fruition of its bie honors and rewards is the result of constant bis application. Without earnest and intense study you will be deficient in the requisite knowledge to practice a profession which de mands the most varied information; without th. integrity, the most brilliant talents and most he diversified knowledge, will fail to command 'd. respect and confidence; without the confitlenee of of the publie compensating employment is or never realized. Themis is truly a jealous mistress; she de Dk mands constant and undivided love ; her favors trs are withheld from those who, led astray by at pleasure, or the fascination of other attrac ns tions, grow cold in worship at her shrine. ° Action makes the orator, as we are informed by Demosthenes, but study makes the lawyer. C Knowledge of all kinds is required in the ex tended practice of thesuccessful advocate, and therefore no branch of science is to be neg 1e leoted. Philosophy, physics, metaphysics, a Pl history, political economy, all in their turn, 1 to and to a greater or less degree, are called into y the service of the law, in adjusting the rights a so of litigants in courts of justice. Blit, in the c at culture of your minds do not become devotees b at the shrine of that modern system of mate- ft al rial philosophy which excludes the supernatu- h n rul, and by which man is converted into a mr ruex reasoning machine, without hope, with- " out satisfaction of his aspirations, without an ai g olject to gratify the irrepressible yearnings of the soul, and therefore without happiness. The 01 most mtelancholy instance of a purely material sl :t culture is to be found in the autobiography of it John Stuart Mill, who began Greek at three w y years of age, road Plato at Seven, studied logic at at twelve, went through a complete course of se t political economy at thirteen, including the "J most intricate points of the theory of currency; P; at eighteen became a constant writer for the e Testminster I.eriew, and at nineteen edited lien- di Stham's flieory of Eridence. lie was brought up by his father to believe that Christianity was false, and that even as regards natural religion of there was no ground for hiith; for he laments tit r " that those who reject revelation, very gener- th ally take refuge in an optimistic Deism, a worship of the order of nature, and the sip- tit posed course of Providence, at least, (as he ch says,) as full of contradictions and perverting to the moral sentiments as any of the forms of sit Christianity, if only it is as completely nual yzed." We rise from the perusal of this drear of autobiography with sad compassion for him lIUl who tells .r; that Coleridge described his men- vil tal condition in two lines: 20. W" ork without hope draws nectar in a sieve, And hope without an oIject caunnot live.'" The tendency of the age is to materialism of the intellect of the ago is mechanical; the of metaphysical and moral sciences are falling thi into decay ; the science of the mind is neglect ed, and philosophers are found who maintain that " the brain secretes thought as the liver ki secretes bile." 8" It is no longer the moral, religious and ore spiritual condition of the peon le that concerns our legislators; the physical comfort of the c masses is the sole object of government. The recent scheme of compulsory education the ignores moral and religions culture, sacrifices wh heart and soul on theal tar of-material science; na, the body politic is alone cared for, while the not soul politic is thrown aside, as unworthy the l consideration of statesmen. Men seem to have h lost their belief in the supernatural, the in visible, the divine, the spiritual ; they no gil longer worship the beautiful and good; virtue, mot having lost its absolute character, is measured the by the extent of its usefulness. The spirit of fut materialism has invaded even the domain of fast the masses; the song of the poet; is it any son; longer "a tone of the Meminon statue breath.- Th lug music as the light first touches it T a liquid wisdom, disclosing to our ensetthedeep Pitl infinite harmonies of nature, aud man's soul 1" sloe Alas, no! it is either the cold and drear song boee ofa philosophy fhbich colegates the soul to the o gloomy region of the nuknownable, or the Ct meretricious chant of worshlip of the senses, not ill suited to the choristers of the Tenple A. I of Venus. eleg. We are gravely told by tile scientists of the cand present day, that belitef iI the surnllatural, etc. which is the floul tlla' "t ill Ilotl e .l-i- hi gionu , is inconsistent with] lhe , , ,I iia0r lt r , al, that lellgioll is the int-t-vItiIll ot tr.tllr ), N degrades the imtel'rel, sulitlrire. s 4i li pira- , r ..i.. tilsh of I:attle, anld is a:s.ta~,,lt s(tic to tLu ; in.ts I.bety of tLe l.e-ple. "I , No uassertions have less tfoundation in fact i." and in reason. Religion, iu ita nature and LI constitution, is theological; it teaches that the end for which all creatures are made is ions, not temporal bat spiritual and eternal, for Him who i 1º6 c ir · ote,_ t M s ( t e, $ final cause prescribes the law which all men must obey; hence it vindicates the rights of God in the government of men. The rights of God are perfect, absolute, and the foundation of all human rights; hence the oppression of T-one creature by another is a violation of God's right; no wrong can be done, no man can be deprived of life, liberty or the pursuit of hap pinsss, without a violation of God's right. Religion, therefore, as the vindicator of the rights of God, protects the inalienable rights 27. of man, opposes despotism, arbitrary power, and every species of slavery; it demands for God's creatures liberty, political, social and individual, and such liberty as it demands can on never degenerate into license, because license ig- necessarily iluplies a violation of God's law. ess "Religion." says DeTocqueville, "is the com of panion of liberty in all its battles and tri gal umphs, the cradle of its infancy and the divine la- source of its claims; it is the safeguard of in morality, and morality is the best security of nal law, as well as the surest pledge of freedom." in Intellectual culture, without religion, may its gain an ephemeral triumph ; it can never per lnt petuate the freedom and the civilization of a o great people: it never has raised a fallenu em te pirr, ,r infused new I fe into a superanunated or In- efl'to nation. >ut The great danger in our own country is from st the predominanuce of material interests. De d mocracy htas a direct tendency to favor ine qee qIality anti injustice, because the Government is must follow the passions" and interests of the people, and of course the stronger passions le- and interests; and these with us are material. irs There is no restraint on predominating opin by ions and interests but religion. e- The fancied antagonism between religion te. and real science, though frequently asserted, ed has never been established. Religion, on the r. contrary, ennobles and dignifies science. - God calls himself, not only the God of good id ness, the God of mercy, the God of peac'e, the g- God of wisdom, the God of justice, the God of , armies, but also the "God of all knowledge." 1 Kings, 2, 3. to In the conteriiplation of religion science has ts a divine aspect, not only because to know, to .i ie compreheid, is the divine trait in man, but as because nature is the work of Gol ; substance, c. form, laws, pheeomena, the essence of life, allt - have been ordained by hinm with infinite wis a dum and power. On his work he has left the i impress of himself, a splendor which reveals n and manifests him. ,f IRligion invites man to scrutinize the work c 0 of God, and the wisdom of God in His work ; o 1l she provokes scientific investigation. ,f The grand scene described in the Scriptureo, *e where God caused all the beasts of the earth e i and fowls of the air to pass before Adam, " to t; , see what he would call them," is a magnificent , e symbol of man, in the name of God, taking possession of the world by knowledge. e The Scriptures are full of recognitions of the ti .dignity and divine origin of science. ti Sp olomuon, in the Book of Wisdom, says: s " For he hath given me the true knowledge tl n of the things that are, to know the disposi- d a tions of the whole world, and the virtue of f, the elements. "The beginning and ending and midst of the n times, the alterations of their courses and the lI e changes of the seasons. tl "The revolutions of the year, and the dispo- tl f sition of the stars. "The natures of living cre al ins, and rage di r of wild beasts, the force iof winds, and reason- -If ings of man, the diversities of plants and the ki virtues of roots." Wisdom, ch. 7, v. 17, 1, 19, 20. so Again, in the book of Ecclesiasticus, we find: " lioor the physician for the need thou hast of him; for the Most High bath created him. " The Mcst High hath created medicines out of the earth, and a wise man will not abhor i, them. " The virtue of these things is come to the C. knowledge of men, and the Most HIigh hath given knowledge to men, that He may be hon ored in Hlis wonders." Ecolesiasticus, ch. 3, a v. 1, 4, G. m: .Religion, therefore, neither repels nor fears ch ecietce, nor is there any antagonism between GI them, and I comprehend the disdain with tw which Cuvier rejects the idea. That great os naturalist and man of science says: "I will in, not stop to reply to those who would have as So believe the spirit of science is antagonistic to Its that of religion." Interest in your welfare has impelled me to lol give you this parting warning against the bn most subtle enemy to your happiness. It is tat the most subtle, because it is gratifying to eta human vanity, pride and passion, as well as dii fashionable, to ignore the existence of a per- fro sonal God, aind the fact that nature forces on our hearts a Creator, history a Providence. the The wish that long years of success and hap- .h piness may await you, is the faintest expres- Cal sion of the profound interest all the mem bers of the faculty feel in each and every one bra of you. un CouMsiL ION. -Parents will find, at Mr. A.

The water has an continued to spread over the interior country so southward, submerging all the conitry around Gland Lake and the eastern bank of the Bayou ri-Teche; the Grand river, Belle river and Lower no Boueff country, and the rich " Braley' Settle of ments" along the Lafourche. gn It is difficult to reckon the inimense amount ny of loss occasioned throughout thitse sections 'r- just named, to say nothinug of the greater loss n- to the peopi~ farther north in this par iIh and or the parishes of West li;ton IRotg, and Points Coupee. The pro-pect for crops th roughiot this whole 1 e- country had not !,en eqpilalled since the war, it and upon these prospects depended every hope i1 of our people. The crops of the a hree former I. years had f.liled in many respects. Very few - people hall supplies for any length of time, n and those who obtainedl advaun.es: obtained , them in very limited lots, and these, it is need e less to say, have been destroy ed or discontinued since the overflow. e The misery an'l suffering among our people, consequent upon the widespread disaster of the present flood, Intist have equalled if not 11 exceeded the loss in property thus ctused our f . section, had it not been for the general, open handed supply of provisions and money sent c I through the Relief Committeco of your city. Truly our ccuttry presents a noble example of generosity in the manner in which our appeal for help has been responded to. Upon this i charity, so nobly and generously given, many of our people now depend to save themn from the horrors of starvation. White and black senfer alike, with little hope of a change for the better inside of the next two or' three months. The water, we fear, will not go down in time to enable much of the oveaflowed district to grow a crop of late corn, and in that event the prospects before our State are gloomy in deed. Many of our people are already looking 13 forward to now homes, and no doubt large , numbers will, as soon as they can, cast their hi lots in sections above the level of the floods of the Mississippi. Texas and Florida seem to be the " promised lands." No doubt Texas will al draw largely upon the population of our d Wooded distritts. Means of transportation keep many in their watery homes now, though hi some are on the move already. PrLICAN.v. th The Church in North Carolina. th sa A cot respondent of the Brooklyn Catho- no lic JIeri,'r writing from Raleigh, North for Carolina, under date of April 1Cth, says: w: On Friday last our Bishop arrived here, oct and installed ReIv.

Lnt PART IIt. nss While Thellues picked out of our hero's ase shoulders the two javelins still sticking in the ld steel shirt, he said in a low voice: rite " Yong master and friend, had you not better ride forward fast f It is not well to leave lo "those weighty oorn-bags too long in the charge ar, of common soldiers." I'e "You are right, my friend. I will do so" I Der Charise, I must overtake the Other vehicle. W Bring all our friends here quickly after me. e0, Fellow-soldiers, you must sustain your severe ed pace for a few hours or so longer. At every I d- milestone you must change the run to a quick I ed walk until quite in breath again." And remounting, he galloped forward. It I le, was in a part of the road perfectly level with I of the land around, under bright starlight, the - moon having set, that he came up with the r r four soldiers who were escorting the baggage- I ' cart. They were halting. The linch-pin of t one of the front wheels had given way, the I Y. wheel had woblled off the axietree, and the a legionaries were even then busy in endeavor- n il ing to manufacture a temporary fastening. In c s other respects all was not well. Two of the b Y horses bad fallen lame. To maintain a forced a pace was no longer possible. When the k wheel lhad been rpllaced in a rude fashion, na ,r Paulus diectred his men to move forward 0 gently at a walk, until they should be rejoined at by the nine others belonging to their little ; expedition; and while riding quietly in their tl rear, and affecting to hum an air of music ti which was then popular in Greece, and neused w to be played by ladies upon the seven-stringed rt lyre, he considered, with no little anxiety 1t and carefulness, was it possible that the free- c, booters should find out the contents of the ei Istrongbox, and return in pursuit? ht First, it was certain that they would not go tl, all the way back to Rome; they would not w dare to take their culmbrous and conspicuous at prize into the city at all. They must already have halted; and it was likely that, making no their way offi tihe highroad into the forrest, it they would have deposited the chest in some ati safe dell ordiingle. Secondly, however, it was de not probable they could open the chest by any br forcible means for many hours. This thought wo w-as a relief. But suddenly an alarming idea Li occurred to hiim. Eleazar had betrayed him ; sa would not Eleazar be sufficiently cunning to anticipate-not perhaps the removal of the bu money out of the chest, but the easy and joy obvicus artifice of concealing the key f The het delay which could be caused by the want of a his key might enable a well-mounted rider to the fetch from the rear-guard of (emanicus's army we a strong escort, and to lead it back in time to in 1 recover the booty; and might not Eleazar pol- A eam a slulicate key f Might he not have followed har hts accomplices, and, meeting them on their roa, return, have produeed the means which they tolt desired but lacked of opening the box ?

There were soue wines whei and other provisions in the cast, and he deter- uonce Rined to call a halt, af ord his men the re- he a freshmenta which their severe exertions had land rendered so needful, and consult with his three last, fkdkma wl and wine, he ordered them to give the hores. a feed of corn in nose-bags, and then to go back along the road, beyond hearing; to keep attentive watch for any sign of pursuit; to take a repeast, and to rest until further orders. When these things had been done, and whea the soldiers were out of hearing, our youth and his three companions took their seats upon the corn-bags in the wagon; and while eating some bread and meat and grapes, and passing round a horn of wine, Paulus laid the subject of his anxiety before the others. They agreed with him as to the gravity of the disastrous possibility impending over them ; and Longinus, who was very modest, seeinWthat neither Charias nor Thellus proffered a word said : " i lnturions, we left Homre, you know, by cros the Via Notentntana; we have made about a the hundred thoulsand paces; we are now not far fromt the Lake Thrasymene,.cJf evil fame. I not know this country well. Not six hundred rave paces front the road, on the right hand, there argo is an acient bosky dingle or hollow. It was, I think, formerly a quarry, front which many so- thousand paces of this very road were paved. ile. It is now lined all round with copse and brush me. wood. I recommend that we take the wagon were throngh the fields into that doll, where it will very remain concealed completely, as it will be uick mnch below the level of the surrounding country. At the brink of the dell we can on it harness the horse., which sunle of the men can ith mount and ride oflf upon. There are provi the sions enough for thr-ee or four days for three of the us. We will let the wagon roll down to a go.- ledge in the concave of the dingle. The cen of turion Chitris, l'hellus, and myself will re the main on guard, and lead the forester's life for the a day or two or three. You, who are so well -or- mounted, can ride as fast as posible to the n canmp of t;crmantlcus, near Faortum, Allieni, and the bring back a sadiciernt escort, say lifty men, coe and we will await, your return." the " You have tonched it with the point of a on, needle," cried Paulus. rd " It is good advice," added Cl atias, " in ted substance. liut we had better tnot leave wheel Ie marks througl the fields. Let as ourselves carry dr the corn-bags, as well as the provisions, into sic the dell. Let the wagon, the weight of which ed will be enormously lightened after the coin is ed removed, proceed forward. The horses can :y then bear it swiftly ; and all the ten soldiers cc- car have a conveyance, two ,o horseback, he eight in the wagon ; the two, l.tme hl:rses can bet led by the mounted menu; all nix beasts will go thus be preserved for future ie. I don't like, tot when in war, losing an ass, or even the ear of pu an ass, that I can save." y " N:vertheless," returned Patult, " we mush ig trot separate the conveyance too far from what 5t, it has to convey. Yours be the task of obliter Ie sting the wheel marks, not all the way to the as dell, but near the road. I may be able to y bring back soldiers, yet not to bring another it wagon. Therefore we will forthwith carry a Louginus's plan into effect. Itis iUtpossibleto n; say how soon it might be too late." Lo Without calling to the soldiers, who were a ie hundred yards off in their rear, antt were en d joying their supper, Paulus tied hid horse's to head to a tree, and, with the vigorous help of a his three companions, soon saw removed into o the dingle, to which Longinus led the way, the y wagon and the whole of the treasure concealed o in the tightly-strapped corn-bags.
