I It is said that the enemies of France In 1860 drew geat enoauragement for their bstlýe deigns from the revelations of the Pleblaiscite. The publication oftbe electoral retrans, epeelally as regarded the military r~te, bas eed lto-b have been a motive Case for the disregard of French senti smeat which Prussia shortly afterwards exhibited in the affair of the HIohensollern candidature for the throne of Spain. By publlshing the totals of military voters the lPnech Government In fact betrayed the eomparative smalloess of the military force which could be collected to meet a sudden emergency, and foreign foes were accord- C Ingly taught to discern the weak point in f the French defences. An electoral publica tion of a kindred character has just taken place in Germany, and though the revela tions do not affect the military strength of t the new Empire, they are none the less P caluenlated to awaken serious resections as e to the stability and coherence of a State fI which already presents symptoms of in. o tarnal disquiet and disunion so numerous and-so profound. It appears that it is the Government of Berlin that we have to a lthak for the disclosure. Anxious to learn m the preiese nature of the popular support ti which at the late election was rendered to bJ the various parties in the struggle, the an- o0 thortlies issued instructions to the local of a ministrations throughout the Empire to in draw up, in conformity with certain com- t mon plans and directions,eaccurate lists of th the total electoral population in each dis- fe1 triet, the total number of such electoral th population which took part in the polling, Cl as well as the precise number of votes ob- TI ua ea ny the candidates, unsuccessful as at well as successful, who contested each con- w atituency as the representative of one or o other of the contending parties in the State, on By this means it becomes possible to know Ui nt only the number of successes to be sal reckoned to the score of any political Ge party, but also the amount of strength, we often very considerable, which was put of forth Is those cases in which the party agi suffered defeat. We are also able to learn 18 the relative strength of party feeling as bel exhibited in different districts, and among Po' .pulations differing in race or creed, or eff In the first place we learn that, of the eight millions and a half who in Germany 1 constitute the Parliamentary electorate, ke, hardly more than live millions and a for quarter went to the polls at the last eleo- oto Eon on behalf of any party whatever. uni This deficit, as we may call it, of three livi millions and a quarter most form a serious item in any calculations as to the future ear strength of parties. At present it is suffi- is t dent to observe that not all the incite ments and exhortations of the Government sea and of the Opposition were able to induce gal, this enormous inert proportion of the pop- vas, elation to bestow any attention upon sou politics. The consideration of the position aod is which the Government and Opposition the stand in the absence of these three millions sea and a quarter will be found to deepen the con' sentiments that with this "residuum" lies Uns 1s the future the disposal of the public tim destinies. Any serious change of opinion; cas or any strong impulse leading these torpid stem millions to throw aside their torpor would agi strangely shift the balance of power in The Germany. As it is, the balance of power is befe unasteady enough, nor can we find anything the better suited to Illustrate the condition of ? German politics than the parallel plight of gre Spanish factions and parties in the Cortes plia oDon Amadeo. In Spain, after the Revo soe lation of 1868 and the accession of the reo Italian Prince, it was quickly perceived .i that no single party in the State was in a live posltion to constititute a working majority. gree For a time the expedient of a policy of compromise and cabinets of" conciliation" and succeeded in uniting two or more of the pic factions most profoundly pledged to the rocp work of the Revolution. The clay came city. when the Progressist refused to join withc the Liberal, and when the Radical turned i" on his heel from both. Thus the collapse No became inevitable. In default of a ma- ore jerity, every sort of Government became s Impossible, save and except the uncertain Bokl despotism of the sword, aiid the very no- well tion of Cortes and general elections excited ed b little but ridicule, when it was remembered para that the last experiments of the kind had man S..... aively established the character of count any such proceeding. In Germany there is tirel now just such a cabinet of "conciliation," denc -- such an " alliance" of parties for one or was two common aims. When, however, a war. Closer look into the subject reveals the P"P reciprocal animosities of the "allies" and iinn the hollowness of the " conciliation," it is west impossibleto avoid reverting to the thought the m that it may soon be as hard to find a ma- net-l jerity whereon to establish a Ministry as dere, even in Spain. How long is the German desea Progressist likely to make common cause barn -- wh the Conservative and as soon as the canal ill-assorted confederates begin to dissolve conli artnership, what is to replace their con- vasin ederation in the Parliamentary arena conV The strongest party in Germany is the the a National-Liberal, but the National-Liberal t is are so far from constituting a nIajority of eite the eleetorate that out of the five million for a and a quarter voters only ,G00,000 sup- territ ported the National-Liberal candidates. In fact, the Catholic voters, the bold electors Ti of the feared and caluomniated Centrum- whic artei, muster within fifty thousand of land hi figure, forming an imposing mass of th 1,550, men. The Progressists number ml some 480,000 votes, tue Conservatives T I amount to 375,000, and the Socialists and en extreme Democrats, curious to relate, Cmth reach a nearly identical sum.

We have thought it beat to wait for -t tate further and more exact particulars of this n in. outrage and injury to the Catholic Church roue throughout the world before dealing with I Sthe it in detail, as we intend to do. But this a eto much we must say at once. The promises p earn made by the Italian Government at the n port time of its invasion of Rome, and repeated oby Signor Visconti Venosta on more than sa- one occasion in reply to the representations o ocal of foreign diplomatists, were calculated and d a to intended to make the world believe, that a om- the seizure of the temporal sovereignty of Ic a of the Holy See would not involve any inter di.- ference with the machinery through which oral the spiritual administration and work of the ng, Church s carried on at home and abroad. ob: The blow now struck at the Propaganda I as strikes at Catholic Missions throughout the son- world; not only in heathen lands, but in et Sor countries like our own, together with all ate, our colonies and dependencies, and the ba low United States as well. The solemn as be surances of King Victor Emmanuel and his re ical Government are perfidiously broken, and hi ith, we have another and a tremendous proof hii put of the fact, that the campaign in Italy th rty against the Holy See, of which the crime of an mo 1870 was the principal achievement, is ho as being waged, not only against the temporal Ja ng power, but against the spiritual liberty and ra or efficiency of the Church throughout the m world. the -- ny A LONESOME PLACE.-The life of the te, keepers of the Farallon light, on the Cali a fornia coast, is singularly lonely and mon 00- otonous.

After going through the pasture for some distance they ugust, found him lying in an unconscious condi bbery tion on the brow of a mineral hole. the tali back of his head out very badly. They picked him up and conveyed him home, rerely where in a short time his consciousness re It turned, and when he got so he could speak he related the following strange and thrill ing adventure : " I was riding along to the of all watering-place; while on the way I heard i s, the the report of a gun, and heard the ham of 1 p for the shot passing near me; a number of it for them I thought struck my horse in the a this neck.

I finally became conscious of what had hap enda pened to me and made an effort to get my the leg free, and after a long and painful struggle I succeeded. I then made up my mind to drag myself out, if possible, but I the had grown so weak I was afraid I could SI as- never do it.

When Kinsley had told reo his story some of the party went back to t taly the mineral hole where they had found him, of e of and on reconnnoitering discovered the er is horse lying in the bottom of the shaft as se oral James had stated.

At tin. moment when ot Pallas came ountof the brain of Jupiter, the ; earth produced the rose, that delight might T follow in the wake of wisdom. White at T of first, the poets have not quite agreed to and lii what it owed its many purpled hues. We kno are told by some that the exquisite Adonis T was mortally wounded by a boar, and that his flowing blood fell on the roses, and colored them for ever. According to oth ers, Venus ran to protect him, and the thorns and briers tore her lovely skin, and a the purple drops fell on a wild rose, dyed al it, and consecrated it for ever in her honor. To t he Such a circumstance was scarcely neces- era. sd sary to make so perfect a flower sacred to soot the goddess of. beauty.

Hence came the custom of suns t- pending a rose from the ceiling of the room where families assembled, in order j that discretion, of which it was the symbol, might become the guarantee of the sacred J. e security of all their conversations. Sub rose (under the rose) was a proverb that signified : We can speak freely, without suspicion.
