It is true that tihe latter hca Ger Sman blood in hie veins, ard on that account lost tie,, vortes of a section of tl.e constitul j arcy. On the othier hand, Mie had been eai I ily defeated before, aod hadl no particular 3 recommendations except his political opin- I s ions. The other is that the :ititade of tihe a Gove rnment liar d:eacnrtened tihe Catholics. About I1,0(H) voters abstainedl from the I I poll. Of these certainly thle majority were I Catholics; ihad they supported M. Clihavanty, Sthe Conservative candidate, who polled as r it was 2 ,355 votes, ire would have scored an a Seasy victory. There were no less than four I Scandidates of the Left in the field, and it c Swas certain that three of them would not f retire. Tihe Catholic electors in France, t as a rule do not understand voting a for the Opposition. When the Government d is frankly Catholic, they will be enthusiatic c fer the oficial candidate. But as it is, fi 'they are puzzled ; they do not wish to vote ii against the Marshral-President. neither do t they care to support Jules Simon.

TSignor Mancini, the Minister of Grace, Jusatice, and Worship, has Isened the fol. I lowing circunlar to the law cicers, Proca. t rators General of the Crown, with reference r to the magnificent Allocation of the Holy e Father which we publish in full on one of C our inside pages: HOIE, March 17th, 1877. ti Instructions have been requested by l, several a filoes of the Public Ministry in or- eI der to know whether proceedings were to be taken, for offenses of the Press, against p, the newspapere reproducinog tie last Allo- s cation of the Pope, in Rome, on the 12th of in this month. at There is no doubt buhot that all Italians w w!o love their country, its uinternal peace, CI and its unity and gianneur in face of other ar countries of the world, will read with bit th terness of mind the language, exceesire and of violent beyond the common, which this t,, document employs against the Kingdomn of a Italy, its laws and institutions, nod there- ob fore also against the august Sovereign who or reigns over it by the will of t!e nation, wi just as if the State were not one ;hich was tl, legitimately coenstitated and acknowledged pu and respected by all other Governments with which ictrlives upon the most regular pr, and friendly international relations. an The Allocntion ioveighs vehemently in against the will of the Italian people, ex pressed by the suffrage of solemnplebiscites and against the national sovereignty, which it does not shrink from styliug a no usuerpation, and against the free inatitO tions and legitimate powers ot tee State, and against the most important I ,wa and reforms which were approved by the con cordant authorities of both branches of the prc legislature and were sanctioned by the the Kinic. With ingratitade for the generous conces eione ofl prerogatives and tranchiies, which have no parallel in other States, decreed by King and Parliament ti assure the full independence of tile exercise of the spirit ual power of the Supireme Pontiff over the Catholic world, in this discourse it is de nied that such exercise of spiritnal power is truly free and indipendent in R,.m, on the sie ground that indepurletnre mustit consist in exercising, in tname of relig:on, anthority and domination in political mat ters, and in the power of judging and cmO ileruning the laws and civil institutions of Statse, dissuading in such a way the people from giving to ther2 obedience anid ho mage. There is announced in it without die guise the per sistant purpose, whilch also is ot a politicalt character, to profit by all fa vorable occasions for unmaking, Tf possi b!e, the new Itqllan Kingdom. andfor re coveroing for the Papacy the fallen tempo ral power, albeit that power is recognised by the Italian nation to be incompasible with its liberty and prosperity, And despite the concurrent sanction and recognition of all other State.. The maxim is also in culcated, although it is faalsified by noto rious evidence and by the experience of the last seven years, that the Pope wnst be either the suvereign of Rome, or else can not be nther than a prisoner there. Nor, lastly, is there wanting the making a fer vent appeal to all the Bishops of the world, an appeal which shuts the heart against sentiments of filial piety towards the country, orging them by all the means in their power to excitel foreign Governments against Italy and the Government. Certainly there is not in Europe or the world any Government which coeld tole rate such an injury and such an open in citement of the people to cease to yield loyalty and respect to the existing political order and to the laws of the country, with risk of exciting in their midst civil agita tions and discords. The personal inviolability of the Pontiff being respected in order to demonstrate how scrupnlousnely, at cost of all sacrifices and under the very gravest contingencies, we observe the Guarantees accorded by the law of May 13 1871, for the absolute inde pendenuce of the Head of the Church, yet it cannot be doubted but that the reproduc - tion by othbre, through the Press or other wine, of similar provocatiorns and wishes for destruction of the State, and the repetition of suck manifest outrages against the laws and lhstitutions, may authorize the agents of tJ Pnblic biristry not to let each deeds pass with impunity, but to put in force against the guilty the penal action of tho laws and of the relative instructions given by my predecessor in his circular of Febrn ary 15, 1875, in which he also declared that the very large guarantees sanctioned re garding the Holy See are not to be extend cd, to the damage of the State, beyond their legal limits, and that the iniviolabllity of the Supreme Pontilt for his speeches, whatever they may be, and the liberty which is given to him to cause the acts of his spiritual ministry to be afli ed ti the gates of tihe Basilicas inod the churchcs of Rome, do not exclude the responsibility of those who reproduce by the Press, or other wise disseminate, such acts when they con tain offences legainst the institutions and laws of the State. Nevertheless, the present Ministry, inas much as it is strong i*- its faith in thie unity and liberty of the cc ontry, and in its vigi- i lance against the machinations of the I clerical party, deems this a fitting occasion t for giving to tihe world a solemn proof of I the consciousness which the Italian Govern- I ment ontert.ins of its own strength and 1 dignity, and of its sentiments of unlimited I confidence in the country, and of long suf- 4 fering toleration, pusoehed beyond all imag- 1 mned bounds, towards him who speaks not I the mild language of a religion of charity I and peace, but goes so far as to express I without reticence the desire fur the de- r struction of the State and its Government. r I certainly do not intend to impede your Worships in the conscientious fulfilment of d your duties, and I even recommend you to e take proceedinge, in conformity with the c laws. against reproductions by the Press of F the Pontifical Allocation, when such repub- 1 lications may be accompanied by criminal t manifestations of adhesion, by desires for r the subversion of the State, and by outrage e against the laws and acts of the Govern- a ment. I recl-mmend also that proceedings II be taken against writings and articles rela- ii tire to the Allocution when they contain p the before named offences. V1 Iot not oinly do I not command, but even p in name also I believe of the Cabinet, do I ri deprecate the taking of legal proceedings o as long as the matter concerns merely the li simple reprinting of the text of the afore- fi said Allocution, witheut favorable oe- O mente oropinloas, In aayklnd ofaewsp. , i1 a- iith to appreciate it according to their own good sense, of which they have already given so many proofs. Thus Europe will have a new and luminous demonstration to show whether the Pope in Rome not merely enjoys a complete liberty and independence in the exercise of his spiritual ministry, but also experiences the generosity of the Italian Government, even when he overpasses the limits of his religious ofice and enters the political field, and that so far as to vilify the Italian sovereignty and to assail by his incitements the solidity of our national edifice. Forthermore, this document and the perilous example which in its language it sets before the Italian clergy furnish the mostei(tloquent justification of the legitimacy and necessity for the last project of law, which has already been approved by the Chamber of Deputies and which now awaits approval by the enlightened patriotism of the Senate, which body, especially in view of such manifestations, will doubtless desire rto maintain the favorable vots which it gave to this measure in 1875, without any observation being then made either within or without the Vatican, and made less withont that artificial agitation which in these last days was raised for extraneous purposes. You will acknowledge the receipt of the present circular and keep me informed of any proceedings which may be instituted I in relation to the same. I FOOLING AN INDIAN. HOW A CHIEF WAR IMIPRESSED WITH THE MAGNITUDE OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK. (Chicago Times.) Most of Capt. Moss's time has been in prospecting for gold. About 1862, just at the time when there was such a trore on the Pacifice coast over mineral discoveries in Arizona. he struck some Greenhorns whom be induced to shell out $120,000 for a half interest in a mine which he had opened up on the Colorado river. There is nothing niggardly about Mocs. On the contrary, he is munificent. When hlie had got the cash for his mine he started on an Eastern tolr, taking along with him as a friend and traveling companion, Arstoba, a chieftain of the AMojave tribe, iwho had great intlence among his people. The Indian had never seen more than a few men together at a tilne, and his notions of Eastern civilization were very crude. MIose and his companion went from Lower Cali fprnia to San-Francisco on a steanmer, and when the city and its shipping opened be. fore Aratoba's vision, lie became arman ageable from amazement and excitement, and attempted to jump overboard. When they hoarded a -rain east of the Rockies, and the thing was getting down to thirty or forty miles an hour. the old chief tried to throw himself out of a window, and durirng the remainder of the first day of their jontaey by rail it took two men to prevent him from treaking his neck. He got usneed to, railroad travel, however, and liked it toward the last; but the more he saw of city life the greater his amazement grew. Moss and lIis friend lived in the best New York hotele for a week, faring sump tuously. When lie got ready to visit Washington and Baltimore they took the train from Jersey City in the evening, en gaging berths in a sleeping car. During the night run whenever the train halted at a town Moss made Aratoha get up and look out at thle gaslights. Tae object of this was to make the Indian think tthat he was riding through New York. They arrived in Philadelphi9 before daybreak, and re mained there antil night, when the journey was resumed to Baltimore, Mose still practising his deception on the Indian by waking him up at every town to convince him that they were still riding under the gaeighit (f New York. 1 lie game was played upon the unsuspecting and be wildered aborigine until the trip ended in Washington. Suen tney returned to the wilds of i Arizana old Aratobs feared to relate his experience, for he knew that his people would think that he was lying, or that he had been bribed to deceive them. Finally be consented to tell his story, and on a certain day the whole tribe assembled to bear it. When he described his journey i by rail, and told about riding two whole nights under the gaslights of the city, the unturavelled Mnjaves denounced his nar rative as a ronstrous lie, and they nearly mobbed the old cLief then and there. A council was held and it was decided to s banish Aratoba from the tribe, and he was accordingly stripped of his Eastern-made I clothes, and abandoned on an unirhabited island in the Colorado river, from which I tI was afterward rescued by hlis old friendI Moss. THE TERRIBLE FJ MINE IN INDIA. ] The famine in India is trying the soul of the British Inud:au government. For two seasons the rain has failed t-' come, and the crops could not grow. In the Madras ( pIresidency the famine covers more than 8000(1 square miles, containing 20,000,000 inhabitants. In the Bombay presidency the scourge reaches over 501,000 square miles, with apopulation of 12,000,000. The sEarronnding districts are more or less af- p fected. Thoeusands have starved to death, 1 and the hospitals are full of people diseased for lack of food. In addition to the famine hordes of robbers have been roaming 4 through the country, plundeling the heip less people of their worldly goods. The In- 7 dian government, however, is doing a great work in furnishinog relief for these poor is people. It has inaugurated a system of ii public works to give employment to the laboring men. These works consist of '4 roads, reservoirs, tanks, public wells, r market-housese, jails, streets, bridges, and 1. public parks. Supplies of food are sent IS daily into the interior, and relief camps are il1 established at stated intervals. At present over 1,000,000 people are engaged on the Pr, public works, their labor being paid for N, in food, while as many more are fed gra- se tnitonsly at the soup honees, and at the w relief camps. It is probable that the sov- ar ernment will spenod at least $30,000,000 or $40,000,000 in this year. With all this aid, M it is impossible to provide for all the mil lions woo are in distress. Thousands of people are living on roots and berries, - while thousands are falling dead on the i publio ways, from starvation. The next Tm raiqpfall, shoold occur, in the natural order roa of things, in May and June. This is the r lighter rainfall of the year, as it only partly ai fillethe water-coatsee and reservoirs. In October comes the great monsoon when -a a.r .maktl 4ys s ad Sae grown by Irritation, the neessalty to rin,49 apparent. Nearly every hill-top baes tank for water distribution, while I nearly ali the rivers of Southern India are r damaped at a great expenee, and the water I is thns dietribauted over the thirsty Silde. SWhen the monsoons of the spring and Sautumn fall, the tanks and dams are of ne avail. Gov. HArPOmN' MaRoC -We resoive from Lodden & Bates' Bouthern Must.
