six month's imprisonment. has been arrested
and sent to prison to serve out the term of his

iDeputations from the Reichstag and Landtng

their congratulations. He persists in his refu
,asl teaeknowledge the juriadiction of the new
ecclesiastical court,or the validity of his de
pesition. It is expected the Government will
intern him, as it did the Bishop of Paderborn,
onless he prefers quitting the country.

TuaxaY -All infoimation from official and
unoflclaal sources, confirms the opinion that
not only is Austrian occupation of insurree
tionary provinces determined upon, but that
some foreign occupation is absolutely necessa
ryas a precaution against most probable mas
sacre of Christians wherever they are unarmed
and helpless. In Montenegro the greatest n
easiness prevails. The reigning Prince, on the
adviceof the Great Powers, maintains neutral
ity between the Turks and the insurgents. His
subjects are all in favor of taking part with
the insurgents and a conspiracy to overthrow
him has been discovered.

sides of the Hlouse. Fort (Rep.) then propos-d
that ooleers of the House be instructed to give
preference to Union over Confederate soldiers.
Previons question lost, ?7 to 103. Mr, liarri

LAST SCENE OF THE YORTIIGHT-RESURRECTION
OF I.ITTLE JUSTIN.
The last of those fifteen days, during which
Bernadette was to honor the Blessed Virgin by
visiting thugrotto,-the day which was to close
this long series of prodigies,-was the object of
varied asnd conflicting conjectures. All wished
to witness the final scene; as well those who
had fri qiently assisted at the daily ecstasy, as
i. i.e- who so far had not beheld the spectacle.
Tie day happeLed to be ':'hursday-a matket
d ty at Lourdes. f)uoing the whole morning,
fronm the first faint glimmeerings of the slowly
approac:hiing dawn, the pathway to the grotto
was j ammed with the moving masses. At seu
rise, twenty thousand persons were stationed
around ; and new accessions to the number
were pouring in at every minsie.
Never previously-never since-not even at
those great solemnities which have been noised
far and wide over the land, has Lourdes wit
nessed such a concourse. Police, gendernmery,
soldiery: all were in readiness "to prevent
disorder."
One feeling rose uppermost throughont this
multitude: the vague expeotancy of onin
wonderful spectacle. It seemed apparent t.o
all that the aeries of Apparitions would lhe
closed by some extraordinary ocourrenco.
Some opined for a miracle operated either by
Bernadette or in her favor.
Bernadette, a-ci ding to her cuIstom, heard
Mats bI'fore setting out. At. the head of the
deciviti,,ns path, a gendarme stood in waiting.
lie walked lfore the child with bared sabre,
and oil,uned la way ti'roughi the press. Planks
had ',en dtispos1.l tc.ir trh, grotto, in order to
f.,ci itate hl-r pasa,i. W~'ithout these ipr
cautl)un , e, bonted u, ' h bl for lirnlladette
to rietce I lt c.lol' .e' 15s5 which shut up
eve-ry lietig to th ,ihai.'
VWhen tlPehild pti..ra~,+:d hterself, the wh:olet
assemblalge, y one cnmntoi impulset, tell ion
their knees. I ':lroke:n sil:ence: reigned arunuttd.
T"':uo ecl:y soon began : peaceful, radllat,
as ever. The childL went to drink at the tount
tai::, and iertored tier nacestolted p)enance
for iininerd. Nothing , trticular marked this
Apparition of the tonrt, of March. Bernadette
recuive.l the order to speak again to, the
riests, tand to renew her demand for a saotc
tuary. and for processions. She begged of the
I Apparition to tell tier name: the mysterious
Laldy gave no answer.
By the repeated bowings of Bernadette to
wards the niche, it was seen that the Blessed
Virgin was on the point of disappearing. The
child received the last smile of farewell,-the
aureola faded away and died out,-a deep sigh.
1 Bernadette had returned to earth.
bShe arose, took her mother's arm, and with
drew; but a cloud of sadness hung over her
heart:-wonld she again behold the amiable
Lady.
The crowd slowly b)roke up. Daring the
wholeday, hundreds of pious visitors succeeded
e each other at the grotto." At sunset a great
p number was still there, examining the spot,
praying, drinking at the spring, or g:tatherong
from the sacred precinct some prec ous tme
mento.
But the Immaculate Virgin did o)t allow
s this memorable day to pass without ai signal
t manifestation of her gracionbsnes. A metne i,il
miracle wonll fitly e!ose the prodigies of lir
privileged fortnight.
A child of two years was d3ing in a hoi of
] Lourdes. lle was called Justin. his father,
John Bionhohorts, gainied his bread as a day
laborer. Affected with a slos consumuing
fever from his birth, :L.e cl:1il hadl never been
able to, walk a ,,:t . Ail remediles were tr.eid
in vain: life was fJat , t,.. away. Tie dr:: L

despairing and p,,wti'ess, were toe-ute Lia

A charitabi negii;.!,ur was already Ireparinug
the little win':ug-sheet. From tinme t, tsime
a she spoke a few words of unheeded comfort to
y the wretched mother. The eyes of the child
were glazed; his limbs cold and stiffening.
n The breathing was barely perceptible.
" He is dead," moaned the father. " If heis
d not dead, he will die in a few moments." said
i. the good neighbor. "Retire, and weep at
your ease, my poor friend," suggested she to I
the mother. After a while, I will envelop the I
body in this winding-sheet."
But the mother wept not. A wild hope had
sprung up from the depths of her despair.
" He is net dead," cried she. "The Blessed
Virgin of the Grotto will cure him for me."
" Grief has crazed her," said the husband
sadly.
The mother seined the inanimate body of her
chill, covered it with her apron, and iotd
terred by the resi,,stance of her hushandt and
her i ieild, butsris frm:r the Lou se like i maniac
runhinlg forward at, the top of her peledl, and
praying alitdi " I go to the Virgitn." she had
exclaimi(.1 on( leaving the house.

netighborhod of the grotto. The sarih:ken
mother asct. herself on iher knees bif,,re the
grotto, prayed with all ther soul, atd draggied
herself towards the little r'oerv.iir intol which
the cnrrent of the sprig- flotwed. She disen
gages the body of her dlead or dying child
from its covering, and plunges it naked into
the miraculous water. The weather was ex
tremely cold; the water was freezing.
Exclamations of terror, indignant outcries,
follow on the deed. "This woman is crazy,
she is going to kill her child." Some endear
nred to interfere. She knelt immovable, hold
ing the body plunged in the water. "Away,
I away !" exclaimed she with energy. " I wish
to do a!l that depends on me; the good God
1 and the Blessed Virgin will do the rest." The
little Jastin was livid: not a limb moved.
SLit'fe seemed extinct. "The ch-ild is dead," said
the spectators. " Let us leave her alone. The
I poor woman: i± crazed with grief."

slumber weighed upon them. From her throT,e
in Heaven, the Blessed Virgin whispered to
- the heart of this woman the words that Jsus

was the thought that passed through her
mind.
Her husband returned after a while. "Well!

Blessed'Virgin has healed him." The kind-.

about the winding sheet, could not credit her i
