RIPLAJATION OF THE 80-CALLED CHURCH
CHANGE AT ROME, SEW YORK.
+itsr It. Leal Times
In your paper of January 22d you gave
publication to an article taken from the
Churchman. and beaded "A Remarkable
Religions Event." The article gives an
account of "a whole church going from
Boman Catholicism to the Episcopal
churoh" in Rome, New York, and which is
chlaimed as a grand triumph for Episcopa
Having formerly resided in the locality
where this "remarkable event" trans
pired, and being acquainted with the cir
cumstances, having just returned from a
visit to that place,|I concluded to give you
a correct version of the affair, especially
inasmuch as no contradiction of the
COurchrman's version has appeared in your
In the early part of 1171 the German
Catholics of Rome, New York, determined
to build a new church. On assembling
for the purpose of fixing a site it was dis
covered that one portion of their number
favored locating the new church in a part
of the city admirably adapted for such a
purpose, while another portion, some of
whom were proprietors of saloons, insisted
that it should be erected where, when the
congregation assembled. there would be a
probability of a good business patronage.
Nlumerous meetings of the representatives
of both parties failed to produce unanimity
of opinion, and the subject was submitted
to Rt. Rev. John Conroy, bishop of the
diocese of Albany.
The bishop sent Father Nethen, the
Vicar General of the German Catholics of
the diocese, to that city to examine into
the condition of affairs and report the
facts to him. That official did so and
reported in favor of the site selected by
the party first mentioned, and St. Mary's
German Catholic Church was erected, and
is the recognized German Catholic Church
in Rome. After the decision of the bishop
was received, thoou who favored Ii difltrent
site dete ruined to build and did build St.
Joseph's Church, da spite the commands of
the Catholic Church authoriti·s. Their
first priest was a "silenced oee," who
had not been authorized to ofliciate as ia
clergymnan in the Roman Catholic Church
fqr the last fifteen years. The ('hurchma,,n
would have it understood that tht:s Mas
the conversion of an "entire Catholic con
gregation." This church was never Roman
Catholic, but was a German independent
church, and is so named in the directory.
It wan dedicated by RIev. A. J. Canfield,
pastor of the Universalist Church of the
Reconciliation of Utica, a sufficient refuta
tion of its being Roman Catholic. Since
the erection of the church there has been
continual disunion and disturbance among
the members, some of whom had their e) es
opened to the lact that it had been built
more for the benefit of business than reli
lDuring the first few years of its existence
they employed their own pastor, as all in
dependeLt churches do. At one tinme cards
were played and lager beer drunk so nesta
the church that services were greatly in
terfered with, which was just tihe reason
that the bishop objected to building a
church there. Because the pastor rebelled
against such disgraceful acts, on several
occamious the police had to bit culled itn to

Observations made during the Arctic Ex- I
pedltlon have brought to hIliht one or two
CIIioll facts in connection with the powers I
of growthl possessed by diftierent plants on- e
der varying conditions of climate. Ameri- i
can research has proved that the seeds of a
certain plants, if gathered in one climate 1
and sown in another will germinate earlier 1
or later, and with more or less vigor, accor- e
ding as the new clim-teis a armer or colder
tihan the a el. And even a perceptible I
change of climate is not required to show t
these results : a differenco or a few degrees I
only in latitude is sufficient to do so. For
example, wheat from Scotland, sown in the I
ounth of EnglaLd, will germinate and
ripen much more quickly than a hieat of ex- !
actly similar quality gathered in the South I
and planted in the came latitude it which ,
it was grown.
This fact is of the utmost inimprtance to
agricultiuriste. To secure early growing I
wheat, it is only necessary to take care that
the seed is gathered in acolder climate than
that In which it was sown. The process is
peifectly I ra cticable, as it might lie so at
ranged that the wheat sown in the North

APPFECIATION OP WAGNEB.
A story from Bayreuth shows to what ex
I tent some of Herr Wagner's disoiples appre
ciate his compositions. A popular writer
of English songs was going through the
piano-forte score during his stay in Bay
reath, when a little group of devotees hap
pened to call, and begged him to continue
tho exquisite strains of the Gotterdamme
runq. This he did amid achorus of raptu
rous exclamations, until the music became
so complicated that, skillful pianist as he
was, he found himself on the wrong tack,
a: d ran off into a sort of burlesque imita
tion of the master. Instead of the expected
chorus of remonstrance from the devotees,
at the profanation of the wonderful music,
to the astonishment of the player the ejac
ulations of delight were redoubled. He
crashed away handfuls of the abominable
chords, in the base, and the disciples
called upon each other to admire the
harmony and grandeur of the theme.
He rushed up and down the key-board
in vague chromatic scales, interspersed
with casaal thumps on any notes upon
which his aimless fingers chanced to strike,
and in hushed tones his hearers bade each
other to remark with what wondrous subt
lety the leading motives were suggested
and introduced. lie played vague discords
on ever-changing keys on all parts of the
piano, and with upturned eyes the disci
ples pointed out with what grace and power
the subject was brought before them-they
could learn every detail of the story with
out a word of explanation, so eloquent was
the music when heard only on a piano; and
they could but wonder how, after playing
such heavenly music with so much skill,
the pianist could still hint that Herr Wag
ner had ever been approached by mortal
musician, and could even smile as he talked
about the master's sublime genius.
Sixteen Thousand Dollars Paid for Two Pink Vases
of Old Sevres.
(Montreal Herald )
In the drawing room of the Marquis of
I)urfort, at hli chateau of la Feire Saint
Cyr, a pair of vaneas with eivers, of pink
old Sevres, have stood on the same table
for over a century. A bot not long uince,
happening to get into the driawin_ room,
and dashing round and round, atiR.r the
manner of those disacre,.rble creatures
when they find t'emeselves caught in any
enclasure, threw down one of thOSe vases
and broke the cover, which was mended as
neatly as might be. The incident attracted
the attention of a visitor to these vases,
which nobody had noticed previously. A
few days afterwards a dealer in curiosities
called on the Marquis, bringing a letter of
introduction from the Iriend in question,
and told him that he had come from Parisex
pressly to see the two vases, which he was
accordingly allowed to see, and which he
examined with all the air of a connoisseur.
The dealer would fain have bought them,
but the marquis declined to sell them, re
marking that he was not a dealer in porce
A day or two afterwards he received a
letter from the man entreatlog the Marquis
to fix his own price for the two vases.
Several others, repeating the same request,
arrived at short intervals, until the Mar
quis, annoyed at the dealer's persistence,
consulted his inteudanut o the subject, re
marking: " We must really do something
to discourage this persecutor ; what reply
lIad I hetter make to him ?" " Tell him he
may have them for G0,0cit) francse" said the
intendant with a laugh. The marquis,
amused with the idea, replied accordinigly

A very po'ur old man was busy in planting

rudely asked, " Why do loo plant trees, if you

I AII.s Soruasanle ]ST.-AM-A remark
able change in the character of the abip
building on the Clyde has for some time
been going on, and during the last year it
reached very large proportions. This is
the substitution of iron sailing ships for
iron steamers, and the change is ascribed
in some measure to the increase of late
years initbe price of coal, an increase which
m-akes it diffieult to ran steamships at
a profit. In 1873 there were built on the
Clyde 125 iron screw steamers of 218,000
tons, and only twelve iron sailingships of
19,000 tone were launched. But in 1876
only eighty-three iron screw-steamers were
bnitt, while ninety-seven iron sailingcships
of 96,000 tons were constructed. This is as
increase of more than eight-fold in three
years. The change is one which will be
welcomed by enil makers and sailors, who
generally dislike steamers for reasons of
HOUSE FURNISHING GOODS.
