At the several massesin St. 8tephen's Church (Bouliguy) last Sunday, the faithful were ad vised by the Rev. Clergy to make the visits required for gaining the Indulgence of the W Jubilee to the four city ehurehes, vie: the 01 Cathedral, St. Mary's (Archbishop'e), the Im- V maculate Conception and St. Patrick's. The tl Rev. Fathers stated that by following this ad- m vice the faithful would be certain that, at least E in so far as the visitation of the Jubilee Sta- Ii tions was concerned, they had complied with a the necessary eonditions. By a letter dated May 12th, to the Propaga. in tear, we learn that His Grace, the Most Rev. it Archbishop, Bishop Martin, of Natchbitoeches. h and the clergymen who accompanied them, all arrived at Hlare, Francse, on Tuesday, May a 11th, at 4:30 P. w., after a pleasant trip of ten b days. On Sunday, the 8th, by the request of many of the passengers, His Grace preached on the deck of the steamer. His audience was both numerous and attentive. On the 10th he u preached in the Church of Notre Dame, Havre, to an immense congregation, and on the fol- s lowing Saturday left forCambral, where, upon a the invitation of Cardinal Regular, he was to f officiate pontifically, on the Feast of Pentecost t The Monday following be intended to acoom parying the Cardinal to Donal, where a large number of Bishops were to assemble for an Im- t portant religious oeremony. The Promeeslon of the Blessed Sacrament in I St. Patrick's Purisb, last Sonday evening, was I one of the largest ever witnuessed in this city. Long before the appointed bour the charoh was crowded with devout worshipers, many of whom had some from distant parishes to give publio testimony of their Faith. At 4:30 P. M the Rev. Thos. Finn scended the pulpit and preached an eloquent sermon, after which the procesesion was formed in the following order : rcs.Bearer. Acolytes sd Attendant., Chldrea or bthe Behesool. Bcodality B V. M. Sanetary Bolety and Rosary Bociety, Ladies sd Gentlemen of the Parish, 8. Vinoet de Panu Soclety, Banner of 8S. Patrick, Young Mens C. T. A. Soelety. Lttlte Girls Strewlng Flowass, Borne by Rar. P. F. Allen, Paor, aocesapaiLed by Rev. T. Finn and Rae. L. Kenedy. and the Onar of Honer, ConsIsting of about sixty Gentlemen. In this order the procession, which num bered about 3000 persons, marched slowly up Camp to Julia street, down Julia to Magazine, down Magasiune to Poydras, up Poydras to Camp, and thence to the ohurch. Father Allen then briefly addressed the congregation, after whish Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament was given. The Nagro mamIlmi A week or two ago we copied a letter on this subject from Very Rev. Father Benoit, a Rector of St. Joseph's Missionary College ii in England. The letter was written from I this country to a friend in England, and, d though a little uncharitable towards the a white Catbolics of the United States, will p be readily excused for that, on account of b the sealous tone it takes in behalf of the tb negroes. o In fact It is the phenomenon per aeesUauid p of the whole XIX. century to see a spiriti- p al Empire of five millions of souls-well, we p will not say actually abandoned, but- n neglected as in the case of our negro popu- a lation. They would, in numbers, make v quite reapectable kingdom, yet who bids c for their spiritual guidance I Who labors a with them and for them as the zealous tJ missionaries of the Church did and do with c the Chinese, the Japanese, the Indians of this Continent, even the negroes of Africa I p Where is the Blessed Peter Claver that t seizes their (ouls by the main force of an t irresistible compassion and love and binds a them captives at the foot of the Cross b We may fairly say that the negroes " go- a a-begging" as subjects for spiritual zeal. a They are left for the most part to the manipulations of a few carpet-bag speon- a lators in "collections," or peaceably per- I mitted to wander back into Voudoolem. It v is well known that a considerable exception c to this state of things exists in New a Orleans, principally in the Creole parishes. p People of the French race have always ex- v hibited less exclusiveness and clannishness e than others. They are noted for the facility h with which they can accommodate them a selves to the peculiarities of other races and e for the genial and native republicanism I with which they recognize a man under any d shade of colbr. In fact, French politgness is but another name for good sense and o freedom from foolish prejudices. ii This was practically evidenced in the a Jabilee demonstrations recently made. The a processions from the Second District, enor- a mous as they were, consisted about equally t of whites and colored people. It is plain t that in that section the latter have not for fotton their Catholicity. It was quite c evident, too, that a very democratic spirit t pervades the two races in their religious e relations. The colored people were not I only in the procession, but they were 1 everywhere in it,-behind, in front of, and side by side with, white people. We heartily sympathize in the grand r work contemplated by Father Benoit and 1 his missionaries. If Christ died for the re demption of the negro as well and as much as for that of the white man, his soul is just as worthy of every effort for its salvation. In the next world there is no distinction of color, but rather they who have been most humiliated in this life Will be most tenderly dealt with by Him who is equally the Father of all. Danger In Publid Buildings. The recent melancholy disaster in Massa chusetts ought to have a powerful effect in correcting the prevalent architectural errors on the subject of exits for public buildings. When a public edifice is erected almost en tirely of stone withscarcely anything inflam mable about it, as Is the case generally in Europe, not much precaution is necessary. In America, however,, churches are often sonstructed of wood,-pine at that,-and not as much means of getting out provided, in proportion to size, as in a private dwell ing where at most a dozen people would have occasion to escape hastily. Means of egress ought to be so numerous and commodious as to obviate any poshi bility of panic. If people could be moved with the precision of a military oomman", accidents would be generally avoided, but unfortunately, fear pervading a mass of humanity becomes terribly exaggerated and all reaqon is overcome in the excite. ment of the moment. A rush is made, the foremost are trampled under foot, the vie tors being in turn crushed down upon the victims by the surging tide which rises upon the barrier that it has created until the exit is hopelessly choked up. We have heard of the horrors of the burning church in Santiago, Chill, oin the flames of which Stwo thousand persons perished in this way. The burning of the Richmond theatre is also a fearful example of the destructive effects of panic combined with insufoient means of escape. Churches ought to have doors opening outward so that pressure from within would Sburst them open, instead of sealing them fast. The windows, too, ought to be so low that every one of them could afford a con venient opening for escape in case of preo sing need. But particularly the galleries, an onsightly and barbarous appendage often seen in this country, ought to con nect with the ground floor by means very wide steps of easy grade. The narrow, precipitonus fSights that we generally see are mere trajgfr human slaughlter in cases of panic. By the terrible disaster at the Frengh Catho lic church in Booth Holyoke, Mas, seventy two persons were killed, twenty-two were to fatally burned, and twenty-seven seriously in joured. Of those killed fifty-five were females and sixteen males. nt Life consisate, not in mere existence, but in doing good.

On this subject we must' remask, of however, that a scourge is often sent on aso- di count of the sins of a people, and that a scourge is not necessarily an extermination ati No doubt, we of the South have amply of merited the tribulations through which we t have been passing of late years, but they be who have wronged nous are not justified be- i cause God made use of their wickedness to me work the ends of his own justice. The ill people of the North have grievously in wronged the South in the ungenerous and, even, malignant manner in which they 'ti have encouraged the devastation of this to section by asgracelessa brood of Vandals as an ever stole, plundered and ruined anywhere. on The Northern people may say : We did not of thl do it.

Natural decay can not have overtaken our system already. be of Sr. SmurMo's.-Lsst Sunday, the clesing Ci ceremonies of the month of May, were per formed in many localities in this city, and w among them all one of the most beautiful and it impressive scenes was that exhibited at St. al Simeon's Academy. The spacious chapel of hi the institution was handsomely decorated and fe brilliantly lighted, while all the pupils, from young ladies down to little girls, were charm- in iogly attired as for abridal ocoasion. A nuoh. m her of children, too small to go to school for the tt present, but aspirants for future enrollment. cl swelled the train, beautifully crowned with tt wreaths that were to be deposited at their Hoely Mother's feet. Father Massardier offlia ted at the altar, music being very creditably C furnished by the larger pupils conducted by o the Sisters. a One c ,uld not assist at such an occa in., o air tour perceiving how deep and imperish- a able moust be the impressions made upon young hearts by participating in scenes like ~ this. They perceive that whatever is most a grand and important is consecrated to God. a Religion, in this as in all exercises con nected with their school, presides over d Severy event, and everything tends to in- a t vest it with loveliness. In after years, of f coarse, disappointments will come. Children a learn a great deal at school, hbut they can . scarcely ever be taught to realize that life is e but a rude trial and that as viewed by the inex periedoed eyes of childhood it is a delusion. I So discouragement will come and the weary eye will wander back along the vista of life to t ' find some spot of repose. Then the good Sie- I ters and the quiet chapel and the sweet e Mother lovingly crowned will rise upn as though 1 h present and the doubting heart will know that h there is, after all, something pure and tree in r. life. And this is a point in education worth i all the rest. e ST. VIcaerT Da PAUL'S PRIBsa.-We are It pleased to hear that the Fair which opened Saturday evening, May 29th, in St. Vincent's g Hall, has been well patronized. Besides the d usual attractions to be found at entertain.* m ments of this kind, a series of beautiful and Sionstructive plays, announced for the several nights, drew large numbers of strangers to the Hall. While all acted their parts intelli gently, we feel that, for superior excellence, a special mention is due to Messrs. A. Steiner, J. ie C. Sporl and C. Hawvichorst, members of St. 2 Vincent's Literary Society, who appeared re spectively as Alonzo, Pedrillo, and Don Vacco, , lin the drama entitled "Almanzor, King of se Morcia." en .The programme for the next three nights is as follows: Baturday evening, "Chinese Mother," by the young ladies; Sunday even o- ing, "The Expiation," by Bt.

Its subjeot is a s most important one, especially in these times, Qi when the spirit of Truth seems to be ignored M by men, who prefer to make themselves ohiL ps dren of darkness rather than ohildien of light. as Every Catholic should road this work ; the d instruction which it contains is a duty we owe in toourselwes; and no one san commenee the RI work through a sense of obligation, who will ac not be compelled to finisb it with a feeling of ael pleasure h As a brilliant gem reflects more varied bean- m ties in every light we view it, so this rars or volume reveals more profound thoughts, more CI snblime meanings from every side in which our minds pereos it. And yet there is asn effort in the style; but the words flow on in o simple eloquence, clear, conise and thorough- as ly convincing, giving equal credit to the piety o of the holy priest and to the learning of the at distinglashed Cardinal. We cannot refrain from calling partleoulpr attention to chapter xiii., entitled "The Gift Ie of Understanding," which will prove a rare es treat to every inteIligent minad; but for the as benefit of those who may fail to obtatn the F bcok, we quote the following extract, which is the ansawer to every cavil against the dog matie teachings of the Church and the perfect ti illumination of every doubt which canrarise p in the mlads of the faithful : "A third efficeof this gift (the gift of nuder- hi standing) is to reduce the revelation of truth to the form of a science. We hear much of science in these days. We hear of physical, cc and social, and historical soience; but as soon m as any man says that theology Is a science, at once we see the supercilious change and lines of countenanoe, which we all well know, in C those who have courtesy at least to keep tr silence "Let us ask what, after all, is selence! Science means the knowledge we have of truth by revolving it into its first prineiples, whichb e again are self evident. Now I fully admit that E theology is not a science in that strict sense because revelation, which is the matter of to theology, is to be resolved into the nuthority 1i of God. "Therefore it is not self-evident to the hubman reason; but for that cause I altogether deny C that history, and a great deal of that which we are called upon to receive as seienee, is sience. o' or even scientific. I folly admit that ndathe- f, matics, arithmetic, geometry, are sciences; and I would add, the sciences of the physiaol world. They may be tested by expbriment, p they may be resolved into self-evident prinoci plea; therefore they may be called science. And I wall also use the word science of theol- a' ogy, for this reason: that whateveris methodi A cal, clear, definite, plrecise, whatever can be b stated in its principles, may be called scientific, if not in the strictness of propriety, at least r next to it; and in that sense it is quite true o] that the revelation of faith is a supernatural d science. For instance, there is nothing which is so definite in its conceptions, in its terms, in b its definitions. as the Catholic faith. Take g the theology of the Nature, and of the Persons, p and of the Perfections of God. Can anything be more precise Its precision is turned to o' our reproach. Take again the Athanasian T Creed; take the definitions by which we ex press every doctrine of the faith. I need not prove that 'these things are definite. The 1 world cries out against us for that very defin. I iteness; the world denounces us becane we we are dogmatic. If we are not dogmatic, who would know what we teahob If our doctrines Shad neither beginning, tor ending, nor circum- e I ference, like the opinions that are tossed to a and fro by conflictiog sects, nohcbdy would know what we wean. The admission of one indefinite word into an argument, like the ad- d mission of one false figure into a sum, confuses the whole; and therefore the Church from the teginning has been rigorously precise in the choice of the very words by which it conveys t the faith Hlaving defined its doctrlnes, it s-aembles them and groups them together. Your baptismal Creed is the germ of a whole science. The twelve articles of the Apostle' t Creed are, it fact, the text of the whole the- I ology which the Councils of the Church have I elaborated in every age to this day, perpetually analizing more and more exactly the meantng t Iof every revealed troth by this gift of under- t . standing, and then combining them all to gether luto perfect uLirytud symmetry, and 3et never venturing to draw a line round it, or e to say this contains the whole of the meauine; it and that because in this life "wb know in parr, and we prophesy in part," while we are wait ing for that time when the perfect shall come, and what is partial shall be done away. We ir do not venture now to declare that we possess . the whole truth of any mystery, but only so far aslt is revealed. If you look back from a I high mountain, you will see a multitude of n paths and roads and rivers diverging every ,n way. At last they reach the horison and vanish. So it is with the truths of revelation. We can tthee them so far as thef are revealed I t- to us, but at last they reach the vanishing 2. points, where they pass into the infinite mind of God; there we cannot follow them. Theol ogy does not venture to give account of any o thing beyond that which has been revealed ; e- but that which hase been revealed, theology, with a precise treatment and exact method, defines; and combining truths together, it bh rings out that which is implicitly revealed. it Theolegy surrounds the faith, like the radiance round thq sun. The sotienee of God radiates from the bsptias Creed." This work i so ebxceptlonally'beautiful that we may revert to it again; in the mean time re we recommend it to the attention of the writer d of the article on "Science and Religion," which 's appeared in a recent number of the New Orfleas Ie MaUIh4, as also tb the editor of the same jour n- nal, whose learned mind seems more in har id mony with the sublime principles of revelation al and more in accord with the teachings of true be science than does that of his contributor.

Fatbhr ti Kirwan Tgesloosa, sang the Mass. The & aoil, oOpoisd of pupils from the ister', o school, and trained by Miss Agnes Berojfou,i sang Batfman's Mass with fine effect. Brothe t Felician, Director of St. Vincent's Academy, b presided at the organ for the occasion. At the tl Communion the Very Rev. Pastor annoesoed r that in a few days he would go North, in com pany with the Right Rev. Bishop, to ollect. Father O'Callaghan is very oobh beloved by B his congregation and, I may add, jpstly so. IHe B has just covered In a new church which, when t, completed, will be the largest as well as the b, most beautiful churoh in the Dioceeeof Mobile, a, excepting the Cathedral of the Immaculate b Conception. It is plain Gothic, built of briok, n trimmed with Alabama limestone-length 120 feet, breadth 60 feet. The Mass over, Father Kirwan" preached a sermon on "the love of God in the Blessed a Eobharist," taking bis text from the 8th chap- y ter of St. Mark's Gospel, 1-9 verses. He was listened to attentively by a vast audience, for that subject is one which is dear to every u Catholic heart. The Vespers were announced to begin at five o'clock P. m. The charming little brass band from the Brothers' Academy, directed by Pro fessor C. Herwig, was promptly on time, and played "The Harp that once through Tara's a Hall" as the congregation assembled. Every available space in the church was occupied. After the singing of the chapter for the day by the Very. Rev. Pastor, the ceremony of the renewal of Baptismal vows and the reception of new members into the Sodality of the Chil dren of Mary commenced. It was edifying to hear how accurately and distinctly the little girls pronounced each one of those beauntiful prayers. Such prayers are indeed protestations I of love and devotion to Mary Immaculate. The boys who made their first eommunnro in i the morning renewed their Baptismal vows, a and then followed the striking ceremony of crowning the statue of the Blessed Virgin. I Twelve little girls presented twelve crowns to the Very Rev. Pastor, one of which he plsaced C en the statue and the rest on the altar; then some fifty girls presented bouquets and roese. After the crowning; the Very Rev. Pastor ad dressed a few words of encouragement to his qpiritnal children, directing them to persevere in their devotion to Mary, and pointing out the benefits to be derived therefrom. The procession of the Blessed Sacrament was very impressive. The Very Rev. Pastor bore the Blessed Sacrament around the church, and Fathcr Kirwan acted as Master of Ceremonies. Brother Sylvester, as cross-bearor, followed by the Children of Mary's society, numbering ninety, with their beautiful banner, came first; then the girls that made their First Communion in the morning, numbering twenty-one; these were followed by the St. Aloysins' society, with their rich banner, numbering in all seventy; then the boys who had made their First Com munion in the morning, numbering thirtyjour; these again were followed by six or eight little girls, carrying silver-plated baskets laden with rare flowers, which were strewn by them be fore the Blessed Sacrament, as they proceeded slowly around the chureh. The members of the Children of Mary's Society sang the Tan tum Ergo daring the procession. The true character of an ecclesiastical chant is " music for words, not words for music." This was strikingly proven by the young ladies of the Children of Mary's Society this evening. Every syllable of that sublime hymn rang out i. with a precision and rhythm which modern art eould not give it. After the procession, Benediction was given t by the Very Rev. Pastor, and the vast eongre . gation, colleoted from all parts of the city, r dispersed amid the inspiring strains of one of h Prof. C. Herwig's Grand Marobhes from the *s diminutive but really aooomplished brass band, r- composed of boys from the Brothers' school. The 30th of May will be long remembered in n St. Vincent's parish. Take it all in all, it was ,e a day which neither pastor nor people will soon forget. OcoA sioAL.
