Those who have attained maturity may

oertained that this region of great equatorial
lakes is one of the most populous and fertile
on earth, and that an immense plateau, among I
moontains crowned with eternal snow, is t
watered by great streams proceeding from e
them, and offers climates of various degrees of l
temperature. This inviting land is, however. s
the abode of savages, who are at perpetual a
war with each other, and who motally cause a

In a recent interview with a New York re. f
Forter, Governor Wade Ha.pton, referring to I
the widely published report that the Chief c
Justice of the United States Supreme Court
was snubbed by the white people of South Car
e'ina during his recent visit t9 that State,
said :
The assertion that Chief.Justice Waite was
socially ostracised-unoermoniously "out" by
the influential whites of Charleston-I am con- I
fident is untrue. I know that in Columbia 4
such was not the case. When the Chief-Jus- I
tice came to the State capital I made it a point
to call first upon him, which, as Governor, I
did not feel was incumbent upon me in point
of etiquette, and I know that the Speaker of
the House called upon him. It is a very on
likely thing that there we. any intentional
rodeness to the Chief-Justice. The Southern
families are not as wealtby now as before the I
war, and receptions are given much lee fre
quently. It is not that the feeling of hospital. I
sty is absent, but there is no longer the same
ability. There is very little entertaining
done, and everywhere there is a sense of strait
ened ciroumstances. Still, neither in Charles
ton nor in Columbia would there be any idea
of " scutting" or slighting in any way a gentle
man in Mr. Wsite's position. It would be an
unnatural and gratuitons impertinenoe, and I
have no idea that it was committed. No re
port of the kind is likely to be authentic, for
the Chief Justice alone would be in a position
to know the true state of the case, and I have
no idea that he would mention such s matter
even if the facts were as alleged.

(hblia lattes. Ja.8 5th.)
Parliament has reassembled, and on
Tuesday night two Irish subjects were
brought under the notice of the House of
Commons. On the order for the consider
ation of the English Prisons Bill as amend
ed, Mr. O'Connor Power moved a resolu- 4
tion declaring that no legislation dealing
with the managenent and discipline of
prisons could be satisfactory which did j
not extend to convictestablishments. The s
special ground upon which Mr. Power ad
vocated this motion was, that even quite I
recently the political prisoners had endured n
perfectly barbaross and inhuman treat
ment at the hands of their jailors, and in t
proof of this statement he read letters from t
Davitt, Chambers, and M'Carthy, three of n
the political prisoners in question. The r
Home Secretary was evidently taken a
aback, and could only mumble out a com- a
plaint that notice had not been given of
the nature of th6 revelation. The result, t
however, was, as usual, unsatisfactory.
Mr. Parnell, Dr. Ward, and Mr. Butt hav- d
ilg spoken, Mr. Power, at the instance of 0
the last-named gentleman, withdrew his e
motion, ard, as the reporters say, " the 15
subject dropped." c
The discussion just referred to took
place at the morning sitting (morning sit- a
tinge have already commenced); at the t
evening one, Mr. Mitchell Heury once more Ii
laid bare the financial grievance of Ireland, 3
ably supported in his task by Sir Joseph J
hi'Kenna, Mr. Butt, and Captain Nolan. d
liee we need not allude to the fac's and ii
argumonts of the member for Galway fur- a
Cher than to say that he demonstrated v
beyond question that Ireland is robbed of a
several millions sterling annually by undue v
taxation, and that the Chancelor of the Ex- a
chtquer, who replied to him, utterly failed
to upset any one of his positions. The i
facts and arguments, indeed, were all on I
one side; yet, when the division came, the v
majority was found on the side of the I
plunderers. What is, perhaps, more dis- I
heartening, is that scarcely half the Home I
Rule patty put in appearance. Out of 57
Dr 58 members only about 33 voted on a
this important motion, and one who was
actually in the House walked out when the
division bell rang.
The policy of obstruction has been again
this week the subject of considerable dia 1
cueston. Mr. O'Connor Power, M.P., lias
published a very able and eloquent letter
in defence of Messrs Parnell and Bigger
against the charges leveled at those gentle
men by Mr. Butt. 'lbe Irish in England
continue to pronounce for obstruction in a I
very decided manner. In proof of this we 4
need only refer to the report of the last I
meeting of the North London Branch of
the Home Ruole Confederation, and of the
meeting in Hull, at which Mr. John Barry,
of Manchester, one of the most trusted
leaders of the Irish in England, called for
another National Conference to decide the
question of the future policy of the Home
Rule party in Parliament. Finally, the
Irish popular ptese calls loudly for vigor
ous action instead of the " conciliatory"
line of conduct which that bty has Itith
erto adopted.
The Home Rule Confederation of Great
Britain has serve4 asa pattern for the Eog
lish Liberals. Last week a conference of
delegates t. Jlflxi4toeiations in differ
ent parts of England was held in Birming
ham to cot sider a scheme prepared by the
lacal Liberal body for a-general federation
of the associations in question. According
to this scheme, which was adopted, no in
terference with the local independence of
the federated associations is proposed or
comtemplated; but from time to time, and
on all occasions of emergency, their repre
sentatives will be summoned to decide
what shall be the policy of the party.
The Confederation is also designed to as
sist the establishment of Liberal associa
tions on a popular representative basis
throughout the country. Manifestly, this is
an important movement. Inter alia, it -
must affect, to some extent, at least, the
Home Rule organizatian. Our countrymen
in Great Britain must meet it with increas
ed exertions to consolidate their electoral
power, and whatever help can be given
them in this work by Ireland and the Irish
representatives in the House of Commons
should be promptly rendered.
In connection with the conference, the
greatest public meeting that has ever been
held under cover in England took place in
the Bingly Hall. Thirty thousand persons
assembled to hear Mr. Gladstone deliver
an oration on the Eastern question. The
ex-leader of the Liberal party, fired by the
enthusiasm with which he was greeted,
rose to tLe level of the occasion, and "gave
it hot" both to the Turks and to the Tories.
The union with the advanced section of
the party thus inangarated was further ce
mented before Mr Gladstone left Birming
ham. The Liberal Association and several
other polilical bodies of Ridical tendencies
presented the distinguished visitor with
warmly- worded addressees of welcome, and
replies were made, in which Birmingham
and all its belongings were landed to the
skies. In one of those replies, it should be
added, lengthened allusion was made to
Ireland. Once more the legislation of 184O
70 on the Church and Land questions was
held up for public admiration, and the
Irish people were accused of ingratitude
in having ceased to form the Liberal tail;
Mr. Gladstone never once acknowledging
that the gratitude is really due to the Irishb
people for having enabled the Liberal par
ty to hold power for two generations.

the sort. He always asked for his benefaotor's

GIN ALPHtU5 BEA$ Es JUBILEE
From the eloquent address of General
Alpheus Baker, of Eufaula, Ala., delivered
in Montgomery on-the oeasion of the cele
bration of the Holy Father's Jubilee, June
9d, we take the following extracts :
We bear people of this enlightened age,
judging all things by its standard, talk
about the ignorance and supersition of the
Church of Rome in the dark ages; but an
immortal author of the 19;h century, one
of the most renowned that ever spake the
English tongue, himself, a Presbyterian of
the straightest sect, the great Macaulay,
takes a different view, and in the com
mencement of his history of Eogland, fit to
rank with "Livy's pictured page,,' de
clares that the resemblance of the Church
of Rome, often spoken of by divines to the
"Ark of Genesis," was never more perfect
than during those evil days when she alone
rode amid darkness and tempest on the
deluge beneath which all the great-works
of ancient power and wisdom lay entomb
ed, bearing withio her that feeble germ
from which a second and more glorious
civilization was to spring.
What. for instance, was the tffect of this
so-cali d ignorance and superstition upon
that country from which we derive our
language and our laws? For six hundred
years, from the time of its invasion by
Julius Caesar, it had remained under the
dominion of the Casars, and notwithstand
ing the enlightenment of the Augustan age,
and the splendor that succeeded it; not
withstanding the efforts of the Romans to
civilize and advance that province; not
withstanding their founding of its cities
and their building across it of that triple
wall, without progress, it remained in
barbarism, and enchained by the reli
gious power of what was indeed a dark
as well as a bloody superstition. But the
instant it is touched by the spiritual
power of Rome, how magical is the change!
Pope Gregory the First, justly called the
Great, sends St. Augustine with 40 monks
across the channel, who lands in Kent; and
with no other weapon than the cross, as it
were miraculously, in two years converts
the whole island to the Catholic faith.
And that Britain, which had almost disap
peared from history behind the clouds of
barbarism, re appears as England, pros
perous and " merrie England," resplendent
with the light of that Catholic truth which
shone unclouded for a thousand years and
prepared her for that glorious march
which has placed her in the front of na
tions and made her the most stable gov
ernment in the world. Who that has taken
the trouble to enquire does not know that
it was the influence of the Church and its
hierarchy that softened the dire and
mutual hostility of the Norman and the
Saxon, at iength united tlem, and the aid
of that hierarchy was signally efficient in
extorting from King John at Rannemede
the great charter of English liberty, to
whose priceless blessings and protection
this our great Republic is heir.
And what does history tell us was the in
fluence of this so called ignorance and
superstition upon another historic land.
Once it was the ultima thule of the world
-the barbarous island home of a race of
untamable pagan warriors, pirates and
marauders. But, about fourteen hundred
years ago, Pope Sylvester sends there a
Catholic missionary. I believe those of
our Protestant friends who are sceptical
about St. Peter's faith make no question at
all upon St. Patrick's. Yes, a Catholic
missionary, who had acquired the language
of that country while be was a slave upon
its coasts, to which he had been carried in
his youth by a band of pirates from his
native Brittany.
And again, as if miraculously, those
bloody savages and pirates all but simul
taneously kneel before the cross of Jesus,
and accept the faith which he established
upon earth. And a hallowing grace de
-scends from Heaven upon that land to ex
pel forever from it every poisonous infl
ence, and to inspire those virtues which
have made its manhood the synonym of
valor, generosity and genius, as is its
womanhood of truth, tenderness and
purity That martyr people whom suf
fering for their faith has consecrated!
In their native emerald isle of the sea, de
spoiled by confiscations, enthralled by in
justice and tormented by temptation, they
, have, nevertheless, in cheerful poverty,
showed the world how to live witih honor,
and to die with faith. And, when driven
s by oppression from the green fields of their
Fathers they have also taught mankind the
pricelessness of their fidelity to the land of
e their adoption. Far who does cot know
that wherever the fisteof the exile may
f have cast them, there, in peace, civiliza
tion's grandest monuments bear witness to
their mighty toils, and in war, freedom's
I holiest battle grounds are watered by their
s blood. My friends I need not name that
hi hallowed country. In the glowing words
d of Lacordaire, these lips are not pure and
a ardent enough to pronounce that name
a but heaven sees it, and the earth knows it,
e and every generous country opens its
o heart, to bid its children welcome, Oh!
I- heaven that sees ! Oh earth that knows!
5 Oh I all of you purer and worthier than I !
e name that country for me-name it-yese
e say Ireland!
g It would be easy but useless to swell the
b catalogue of benefaction, which this Church,
- through every obstacle, and in every age,
has showered upon mankind.
My friends that power which has wrought
Sall these blessings in the world and is con
8 atantly working them,-whose priests in
k trial and pestilence, show that the spirit of
Sthe martyr still survives, whose holy Nuns
e and Sisters of Charity and Meroy ignoring
sect and nationality go about in the beau
tiful langusge of another, "stopping only
where theref sffering and liongering only
Swhere it is intense" and pay their angel
s visits, neither few nor far between, to the
0, lowly beds of sickness and entering, every
r- where providing shelter and education for
f the houseless and the orphan;-a power
that, always doing good, bas stood so many

WHERE THE MONEY GOES J
N. Y. Catholle Review.)
"The receipts of the Vatican from the
Pope's Jubilee were $1.248 650, exclusive
of valuable presents," said a telegraphic
despatch from Rome dated the 7th inst.
As a respected friend of oars, a German,
who is not a Catholic, read off the sam, he
gave a significant laugh and remarked on
the "poverty " of the Pope. Doubtless
many another has laughed in the same
sense, and wondered where all the money,
so freely given, has gone to. What can a
poor, feeble old man, thut up in the Vati
can and tottering into. the grave, want
with so much money I Our well instruct
ed editors even, in commenting on the
same subject, have not concealed their
nods and winks and wreathed smiles.
Well, it is a wonder. Over a million
dollars within a few montlhs, raised and
transmitted to Rome as a free offering to
an old man. Why Rsseia or Turkey to
day, Italy itself, would promise any
amount of security for a loan of little
larger dimensions, and would find it either
impossible or exceedingly difficult to raise
it. Yet here, unsolicited, it dribbles in
from all quarters of the world to "the old
man in the Vatican."
It is natural that our non Catholic
friends should wonder at this; yet a little
reflection on their own parts ought to re
move all matter for surprise.
It is a mistake in the first place to sup
pose that these are merely personal offer
ings to the Pope. The Pope's annual per
sonal expenses are less than those of many
a bookkeeper in New York; far less than
the annual gum that many a young or old
fool tosses across the bar at Delmonico's
for " drinks." No, these offerings are the
patrimony of the Church placed in the
Pope's safe keeping.
But what is done with all the money s
This is also a very easy question to answer.
The Church does not live on air; bishops,
priests and religious do not live on air.
The churches they tend are not built on
air; the charities under their charge, the
institutions and those who fill them are
not airy creations. The Catholic missions
are not conducted by angels from heaven,
but by men and women. The schools and
churches they found have to be supported,
and the native support in a missionary
country is generally nothing at all or next
to nothing.
But coming down to recent years, since
the seizure of Rome and the Roman States
by Victor Emmanuel, what did that seizure
mean u It meant simply a capture and vi
olent appropriation of the property of the
Churth Over which the Pope reigned as
temporal Prince. This was cutting t ff at
once what may be called the Pope's own
revenues. He could not take a penny of
his own money. True, the robber king
has repeatedly 4 flared the Pope a pittance
out of the Pope's own money, which was
naturally rejected, and the offer resented
as an insult.
In seizing the patrimony of the Church,
Victor Eommannel dispersed most of the
monks and nnns, destroyed their works,
their charities, appropriated their reve
nues, sold their libraries, their effects, their
statues and paintings, their objects of art,
allowing in some cases a certain return
value at a fixed sum. If we recollect
rightly, either one-third or two thirds the
amount yielded from this kind of revenue
flows into the royal coffers for the King's
personal use.
Meanwhile the poor monks and nuns
were thrown on the world without any
means of employment or support, with no
one to feed them. This is no figure of
speech, but a fact. The Pope and the
charity of the faithful had to keep them
from starving. Many, of course, drifted off
into various countries: but to-day Ger
many, Austria, Switzerland and Russia, as
well as Italy-by far the greater part of
Europe-are closed against them. And
the objects of their charity were in a worse
plight than themselves.
Then again many bishops were dispos
sessed of their sees, many priests of their
charges. The State endowment was with
drar'n; but they had to do their work all
the same. The churches had to be kept
open, the services carried on, the schools
to be supported, the poor and famishing
attended. This is the Church's mission
and must be carried through, whether gov
ernments lend a helping hand or not.
Where could all these people look for
guidance and help noless to Rome I And
help in every case meant money. In char
ity more than anything else is it true that
" fne words butter no parsnips." The
Catholics of the United States have con
tributed a goodly sum; yet before these
troubles arose the Pope's own donation to
our American College in Rome was $85,000
at one offer.
The bishops and priests of Germany have
been, and are being, not only dispossessed,
but fined and their possessions seized by
the government. In Switzerland they
gather on the hillsides with their flocks,
while apostates are placed in possession of
Catholic chuarches and Catholic revenues.
They are not forgotten by 'the old man in
the Vatican."
The best iponument of the liberality of the
Popes, their love for true charity, their en
couragement of literature, of the arts and
sciences, of education in every shape and
form, is Rome itself, the city of the Popes.
No charities in all the world were so well
managed, so tender and far-reaching in
their objects, of such practical atility as
those of Rome under the Popes. What it
has become under Victor Emmanuel the
world witnesses. Charity has been baieh
ed from it.
