ARREST OF GRAND DUKE NICHOLAS.
Grand Duke Nicholas, brother of the Czar

the affair great significance, and the greatest
excitement prevails in St. Petersburg.
On the 13th, the Duke de Broglie declared
that he would call up for immediate discuseion

The Civil Rights bill has been the occasion

Close of the Dominican Mission in Algiers
ITS SPLENDID SPIRITUAL RESULTS.
The Mission by the Rev. Doninican Fathers
Rooney and Turner, of Louisville, which
opened in the Church of the Holy Name of
Mary, at Algiers, on the 26th of April, closed
last Sunday evening with the beautiful and
solemn ceremony of the consecration of the
congregation to the Sacred Heart. On that
day, also, his Grace, the Most Rev. Archbishop,
administered confirmation to eighty-seven
children and adults. L.tring the Missiou, and
especially at- the evening exercises-which
consisted of the Holy Rosary, a sermon and the
Beuediction of the Blessed Sacrament-the
church, though large and capable of accom
modating a goodly number, was crowded to
its utmost seating capacity, and many anxious
listeners thronged the aisles near the door,
glad to find even standing room. Among
those whose presence was specially noticeable
were many non-Catholic persons who were
doubtless well informed and instructed as to
the sublime doctrines of the Church of God
by the eloquent Dominican preachers. We
may hope they were likewise edified, and their
plejndices being removed by the Catholic
truths so ably demonstrated to their minds,
their hearts may turn ere long to the only
path which leads to real happiness on earth,
viz.: a knowledge of the one true faith.
To the Catholics of Algiers, the Mission has
buen productive of many beneficial results,
some of which may be already seen in the
increased attendance at church on Sunday.
Those who nobly persisted in the practice of
their duties to Almighty God before Lave been
encouraged and strengthened to persevere to
the end; while the lukowarm, the negligent
and the indifferent have had their eyes opened
to the frightful precipice, on the brink of which
they stood, and have turned back shuddering.
To the latter class, the Mission has indeed been
of incalculable good.
The pastor, Rev. Father Bellanger, is worthy
of all praise for his earnest practical and suc
cessful efforts to awaken the spiritual zeal of
his congregation. Among his many acts look
ing to this end may be mnentioned the Mission
of last year conducted by the Redemptorists,
and the late glorious one which Fathers
Rooney and Turner came a thousand nmiles
from their home in Louisville to give at his
The visible results of this Mission may be
enumerated as follows: Number of Communi
cants, 800, of whom 150 at least had not ap
proached the Sacraments for tmany years: pre
pared for confirmation, b7, of whom 20 were
adults; enrolled in the Society of the Most
Holy Rosary, 390; and a large number enrolled
in the Scapular of the Blessed Virgin. Add to
these the formation of a Total Abstinence
Society, under the auspices of the Catholic
Total Abstinence Union of Loinsinas, and we
have furnished a record of which the priests
and people of Algiers may well be proud.

OUR IRISH LETTER.
I)ar.IN, April 28, 1874.
The Home Rule party iu Parliament has
achieved at least one triumph-and that over
the strong Tory government itself. Mr. Butt's
bill for giving to Irish municipal towns which
are also counties of themselves, the same pri
vilege as similar towns in England enjoy
the privilege, namely, of appointing their own
sheriffs and clerks of the peace-has actually
passed its second reading in the House of
Commons, and that, too, without a division.
At present the government appoints those
officers. The sheriffs in their turn appoint the
grand juries and the sub-sheriffs, and the
grand juries administer the large amount of
funds collected under the name of county cess
for the mainteniance of roads, prisons, etc., and
appoint all such county officers as surveyors,
goal officials and coss collectors. Thus, al
though there are not more than eight or nine
towns in Ireland which have their own sher
iffs, it will be easily seen that the passage of
this bill will involve a considerable concession
of popular rights. Nobody ever thought that
the measure would pass its second reading, and
it would not have done so but for an intemper
ate speech of Sir Michael Boach,-the chief
Secretary for Ireland, on the debate of Mr.
Butt's bill for equalizing the franchise in Irish
and English towns. Sir. M. Beach opposed
this measure and got it defeated, as I men
tioned in my last letter; speaking, as he did,
in a rasping and irritating manner, and
elggesting to Mr. Butt that if he was bent on
assimilating the laws of England and Ireland,
he might begin by re-establishing the Protcst
ant Church and repealing the Land Act. For
this he was taken to task in a severe manner
by the Tieecs and a host of other English jour
nals, all of whom cried out that both of Mr.
Butt's bill should be passed. Sir M. Beach, it
was declared on all hands, had made a terrible
blunder, and the government saw no other 1
way, strong though they were, of repairing it,
than by taking the advice of the times and
accepting Mr. Butt's second bill" They, how
ever, threatened some mutilation of it in com
mittee, and as the Irish Tory papers arecrying
out against it, there is danger that after all it
may be shipwrecked. But so far victory lies
with the IIome Rule party.
A- vote has been added to the Home Rule
party within the past few days. In Athlone,
at the general election, Mr. Edward Shiel (a
nephew of the orator and a Home Ruler) was
returned as having obtained as many votes
exactly as his Whig competitor, Mr. J. J. En
nis, the brother-in-law of the apostate O'Don
oghue and himself a very bad man. On Friday
last a scrutiny of votes woas ordered and the
juidges of the Court of Common Pleas unani
moously decided that several votes recorded for
both gentlemen and rejected at the counting
up by the returning officer had been improp
erly rejected; and five more of these having
been given for Mr. Shiel than for Mr. Ennis,
the formner gentlemen has been declared enti
tled to the seat by a majority of five. On tihe
:amen principle, the defeated HIome Ruler in
Leitrim county would have been declared en
titled to the seat occupied row by a Tory
named Gore, only that, unfortunately, the
necessary service of the petition against Gore's o
return was not effected in time. This was
most lamentable: the incompetence of the
attorney actually caused the loss of a man to
the IHome Rile-party-that is, the loss of two g
votes on a division. The Kerry petition is to
be withdrawn, the reason being that the ornme
Rule party do not like to put. Mr. Blennerhas. a
sett, the HIome Rtle member for Kerry, to the
expense of a contest, which would be oc
nasiened by the success of the petition, against k
himself and his Whig colleague, Mr. Ilerbert.
In regard to the Drogheda petition, there is, I
am glad to say, strong ground for believing
that Dr. W. H. O'Leary, the Home Role ment
ber; will retain his seat. A scrutiny of the
ballot papers has resulted in giving hint a

The mention of Mr. O'Donnell's name re

week by the Very Rev. the Rector. Three
other courses are-one on Ancient History, by
Mr. Robert Ormsby, M. A. (Oxiui) Professor of
Ancient History in the Uuiversity; one on
Biology, by Professor Sigerson, M. D. M. R. I.

fessor O'Reilly of the Royal College of Science,
Stephen Green; and one on Ancient Irish

been appointed Bishop of Sandhurst, Victoria;
and the Rev. M. O'Connor, I'. 1'. of lRathfarn
ham, Dublin, has been appointed Bishop of
Ballarat in the same colony. I believe both of
those are new sees, and that three-fourths of
the entire body of Australian Blishops are now
Irishmen and mostly Dublin men.
There was a meeting held last night in the
Mechanics Iastilute hero to protest against the
governmental " warning" to the Flag of Ire
land. Mr. P. J. Smyth, M. P., presided, and he
was theouly person of any importance present,
though several members of Parliament sent
apologies for their absence. The fact is, al
though the Coercion Act is an atrocious mleas
ore and although there was only the very
paltriest excuse for putting it into force in the
case of the Flag of Ireland, yet that paper and
the Irishman would not be much regretted if
they were suppressed. They are only doing
damage to the national cause, and their char
acter in other respects is anything but envia

Last Sunday, after Iigh Mass, a number of
gentlemen met in the preebytery next to the
church of the Holy Name of Mary, Algiers,
for the purpose of organizing a Catholic Total
Abstinence Society. The Rev. Pastor, Father
ilellanger, of the Society of Mary, was present,
as was also the Rev. J. A. Rooney, one of the
Domlunican Fathers from Louisville.
One of the menmbers of the State Union
havitng explained the manner of organization,
the gentlemen present registered their nuames
and tfok the pledge for one year, after which
Mlr. W. S. Colbert was elected president, pro
tem., and Mr. F. J. Oser, secretary. A com
mittee of three was then appointed to report
on constitution and by laws, after which the
mecting adjourned to meet this (Sunday) eve
ning at 31 o'clock at the same place, when a
permanent organization will be effected. The
gentlemen of the parish are requested to at
tend this meeting.

r whose name heads this notice occupies a proni
ineut place. For over twenty-five years ho
has labored as a missionary in the interests of
the people of our sister State, Alabama, leav
ing everywhere the impress of his apostolic
zeal and devotlon. From a communication in
a recent issue of the Mobile Regiater we extract
the following deserved tribute to Father PI'l
licer. It will be read with no less interest in
this city, where he is well.known and highly
esteemed, than by our many subscribers in
Alabama who will feel his absence as keenly
as does the dutiful child that of a loving father:
There wase a period in the history of the
Church of Alabama, between the years Ir,-0
and 185.3, when, excluding Mobile, Father Pel
licer was the only priest in tae State. Mont
gomery, his headquarters, testify to his zeal
and industry. Here he collected the scattered
sheep and formed a flock which, to-day, in
knowledge, in faith and in good works, is sec
ond to none in the South. Here, by hard
work, he built a splendid church, schooli house
and pastoral residence, for all of which he col.
lected in Mexico and Cuba. lie also built a
church in Camden. During the years men
tioned above he did the same mnissionary duties
which now require the labor of eight priests.
Often, in the old-fashioned stage he had to
travel from one hundred to three hundred
miles in order to carry the consolations of re
lhgion to the sick and dying. Here in Mobile
we know but very little of his sterling worth;
but even whilst amongst us his duties as Vicar
General ef the diocese and pastor of the Ca

Christian fidelity that has ever characterized

Sunday noon, to attend the concert for the
sufferers by the overflow, gave practical evi
dence of their sympathy for the unfortunate
people of Points Coupee parish, as well as of
their own appreciation of good music. The
forlorn condition of these poor people had
been so graphically portrayed by their pastor,
Father Gotton, that no doubt could be enter

for its object their relief. But when the pro

While time rang a monotone at Circello, an
incident occurred at Formije.
Velleius Pateronlus, who occupied rooms
near those of Tiberius in the Mamorran palace.
was alone in his bed-chamber writing. It was
close upon midnight when he heard a timid
knock at his door. lle expected nobody, and
the hour was one when he might have been
supposed asleep. lie waited a moment, in a
half belief that his imagination had deceived
him; but presently he again heard the knock
ing. loe called to whoever was there to enter;
and Clanudius, the slave, obeyed, closing the
door again cautiously behind him.
" Sir," said Claudius, after cooning close to
Vellelus on tiptoe, " being released from duty
for the whole of tihis day, Ispent it at Crispus's
inn, where my Intended wife is living. Among
the lodgers or customers is a young knight

" Why do yon come to me upon this suhbJedf,'

you to pardon me-that you also, illustrious
