Eo.NGLAND.-Lodon, Aug. 6.-A meeting of 5ome Rule moembrs was held to day to con "der the recent occurrences in Parliament. The proceedings were private, but it is under stood a resolution was proposed censuring the obstruotivee. After three hours s'ormy debate tha meeting broke up in disorder without pass tig any resolutions. The Standard understands that Dr. Butt will reelgn his seat for Limerick and offer himself for re-election, in order to decisively test the opinion of the people of Ireland as to the rela tive authority of himself and Mr. Parnell. The Government is energetioally replenish tog stores at the Deptford victualing yard whence the provisions for Gibraltar and Malta were taken. Each of thie places has stores enough to maintain a lage army for twelve TiiP ETICi L don Nesu' Paris "oons p ta eftelegrapjhs the following: I am told, on the best authority, that M. Dufanre is dis ,posed to try to form a ministry of conciliation, with the assistance of the Left Centre and moderate Right, as recommended by the offi cal .3oniteur. The object of this step is to avoid the dangerous crisis which would be occasioned by the present reactionary Cabinet being confronted by a large Republican ma jority. Londoe, Aug. 5.--Reter's Paris telegram states that it appears certain that an amioa ble arrangement, at least outwardly, has bee efeoted between the heretofore opposed sec tions of the Imperialist party, adversaries of M. Ronher having submitted to his control and direction of affairs for the present. In obedience to instructions from the Prince Imperial, Baron Hanseman will run for the .Chamber of Deputies in Ajacoio, against Prince Napoleon. MExTING OF THE EMPERORs.-The Empe rors of Germany and Austria met at Ischel on the 8tb. None of their Ministers were present. The whole interview is said td have testified to the existence of the frankest understanding between the two monarchs. SPAIN.-Tbe first installment of reinforce mene for Cuba, 1000 men, will leave Spain on the 15th inst. THa WAR.-Immediately after the serious d~isaster at Pievna, thte Russians cemmenced 'the concentration and reinforcempnt of their army between the Danube and the Balkan mountains. On the 9.h they flltNthemselves so strong again, that it is said they attacked the Turks once more at Plevns. We have not yet had a confirmation of the report, how ever. 1n Asia the Russians have also heavily rein forced their army, which, has once more as saumed the aggressive and advanced from the frontier towards Kars. The Turkish Government have isnued a cir cular denying that the wounded Russians on the battlefield of Plevna were killed. The cir cular also charges the Russians with the most brutal cruelty in various districts, citing nu lmerons instances, which, if true, must excite the universal condemnation and disgust of the civilized world. UNITED STATES. WAsHINGToN.-The Bureau of Statistics ro ports for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1E7 : Exports $602 500 000, imports $451,250,000; ex -orte of coin and bullion for the same period 66.195 000, imports $40,750,000, against exports of V,6,600,000 and imports of $16,000,000 for the previous year. MAINE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION.-The Con vention met on the 9th.-The Resolutions sub mitted by the Committee affirm: That the United States continue a nation and not a mere confederacy; Citizenship is national; its alle glance and obligations are national. They view, with solicitude and alarm the complete consolidation of all political powers In the sixteen Southern States in the hands of those who participated in the rebellion, while white Union men are persecuted into silence or banishment. The entire colored race are so practically disfranchised by force and fear that, in congressional districts although they have more than two-thirds of the voters, they are unable to elect one of their own race, or a white man in sympathy with their interests. 35 Representatives in Congress, and 35 electo ral votes apportioned to the Southern States by reason ot their colored population, are thus invested to the sole aggrand!zement of Con federate power in the National Government; and late rebel sldiers in Georgia, South Caro lins, Mississippi and Louisiana are thus ena bled to exert in the adminstration of the Gov ernment more than double the political power of the Union soldiers in any Northern State. The States of South Carolina, Florida and Louisielana were fairly and legally carried by the Republicans at the November election, IS7, for Btate and national tickets. The un most impartial tribunal tbat could be organ ised by authority of the National Government -a tribunal to which Demoorats in both branches of Congress gase their deliberate as sent. For the Demoorao party now to raise the cry of fread is bothe nmanly and dishpn eat, and if peeistinnmlst be accepted ad an indication thahth rty, in its mad desire for power, is lming to feour, at all basards, anar chy and donfosion. . An amendment endersing Hayes, and anoabeb stating that Packard and Chamnberlain abould have been supported by the Federal Gfov ment were oglred. The seones were mes stormy and exciting, and fdally the Resolu tions as reported were declared by the commit tee adopted. ' TjE STnRIus.-The strikes on the railroads have almost entirely ended and all trains are roaunning. In the mining regions, however, the trouble continues to a limited extent. At Bayonne, N. J , the miners struck against a redoution of waged to 80 cents a day. At Port Johnson 400 strikers called on Mayor Melgs, aocompanied byFathetdKiileen, and asked hinl to call sa the coal copeanese and teqoest them to pay decent prices. The Mayort promised to do what he could, and urged them to keep the peaoe. At Reading and Baltimore the coronet's juries acquit the soldiers of all blame for the killing during the riots, holding that the ag gressive action of the mob placed the soldiers in imminent danger of losing their lives and Justified them in firing. MUISCLLALNEOUS. 8rT. Lours, Aug. 6 --Tihu-i,. Bonitafe'l'oopi tal, noder the management of the Sisters of the Franciscan Order, situated in South St. Louis, was destroyed by fre.

LocIsvIaLE, Aug. 6 - The workingmien elect five out of seven candidates to the Leg islature, over the regular Democratic nomz nees, in the city of L-,ieville. COLrUMcUs, Miss., Aug. 9 -Parties from Pickens county this evening report the excite ment abating. The negro evidence proves that several whites participated in kitiing seven negroes. One white man in custody, and warrants for others out. No lynch law is being administered, the law being allowed to take its course. GALVaSTONt, Aug. 7.-The Neuas San Antonio special says: Lient Bullis crossed the Rio Grande on the 4th, recaptured five stolen horses and returned to the Texas side on the 5th. Major 8obofield arrested forty-five Valdez filibusters at Eagle Pass. An exciting contest is now in progress be tween the popular Lower Coast stdeamers Mar tha, Eva, Isabel, and Wild Gas-lle, for the ognership of a beautiful silk flag, on which, the dingle but very suggestive word " Favovor ite" is il-clibed. Toe ownership is to be de cided by an elI tion, every pereon who buys a ,O cent ticket being considered an elector, and each having the right to cast as many votes as tie is willing to txpend 50 cent pieces. The proceeds of this elcction aire to bo applied to the benefit of the Clilrchl of St. Cecile, at Jsi nit's Bend, of which the r olous pastor is Father Cnarbier of whom a local paper says: " When he (Father Charbier) canme to the Jesuit's Bend, only five months ago, he found an unfinished Church, now nearly completed; a dwelling house scarcely habitable; which is now rendered comfortable and commodious ; an apology for an Altar. which is now replaced by a new one, worthy of the Universal Church; the grounds open and unprotected have been surrounded with good and substantial fences ; but though so mouch has been already done, yet much remains to be done before tite Church of St. Cecile is placed in a condition worthy of our Holy Religion, creditable to the good people for whose benefit it was erected, and p.sseneed of all the necessary facilities for the performance of the Divine Ministrations of the Holy Catholic Church." We take great pleasure in directing atten tion to the card of our popular young friend, Mr. Jac. Kirkpatrick, which appears on our filth page. Mr. Kirkpatrick is eminently quallified by education and training for the great work he has undertaken 'of giving to this city a really first class depot for the sale of Catholic books, devotional goods, etc. Slnoe the establlshment of his store be has succeeded remarkably well, and if his progress In the near future can .be measured by his suocesa in the past, it will not be long before he will be enabled to move from his present quarters, at el0 Magazine street, to the central business part eft be city, and thus give our Catholic public as fine an establishment as that poseassed by our Methodist friends. Enterprise and liberality in btainess ever melet with their legitimate reward-- ,-eou. This is weil exemplifled in the cano ,,f our friend, the Levy Bros. of the popular dry goods emporinum 5e0 Magazine street, By their justice and liberality in all dealings they have so pleased the public and thereby increased their business to such proportions that they are compelled to move to more commodious quarters. This they will do on the 1st of October, and as they intend to open with a sntirely nsew stoak, they tre oaerlng their persetas s at weoalHlly lew pets.m. lead their IN MEMORIAM : D. J. R. The following lines, says the Favannah (Ga) News, were written by Father Abram J. Byan, in memory of a lother who fell flahitig in the war for Southern toandaonce. Never has afood mother's nobility of soul, hen struggling with love and duty, shone forth more resplendent than her's of whom our "cypress. &yuwad poet" speakse in the fifth stanza. And never rnal affection been embalmed in language mote ea~utiltay sad than in the opening of this sublime poem.\ As we read the plaintive words we fancied they well addressed I ot so much to the ears of the lving as to the spirit of the fallen one who sleeps in his ' lonely'elttle grve." The man who can read this without emotiop ought not to be envied: Thou art sleeping, brother, sleeping In thy lonely battle grave t Shadows o'er the past are creeping Death, the Reaper. still is reaping Years have swept and years are sweeooping, Many a memory from my keeping, But 1'maitlng still and weeping For my beautiful and Brave. When the battle songs were chanted, And war's stirring tocain pealed; By whose songs thy soul was haunted, Clamored wildly-wildly panted " Mother, let my wish he granted !

With lend prayers and bleuinge crowned thee, And she sobbed, " When foes enurround thee, If you fall. I'll know they found thee Where the bravest Idve to die." At the altar of their nation Steed that mother and her son; Be tt e victim of oblation, Panting for his immolatlon Bhe, in iitesteae' holy station, Weeping words tf ctonsecration, While Gad smiled His ap.robation, Itlsseed the by's aelf abnegation, i.beered the mother'e deeolatiou, When the acrice wasoe done.

Dr. Kay, a graduate of Cambridge Unt versity, in hie work on " Social Condition ant Eduation of the People of Europo" e:lls u : " When I was~. Nurepaborg, in theginguotz of Bavaria, I asked a poor tman whether :."ti obligqd him to send bin children to school. He said. 'yes; I moust either sentd them to sabhol or educate them at l:uore, or I should be tined very heavily." I said, "I suppose you don't like these rolebs " lie asawered. " Why not, airI I am a very poor man; I could not aflord the time to teach my children myself, nor the expense of paying for their education myself, the munioipal authorities pay all the sohool fees for my children, and give them good clothes to wear at school; both my children and myself are the gainers by such ano ar rangement; why should I object to It" " In Ratiabon, I spent the whole of one day in company with a poor peasant, who acted as my guide. I said to him. " Have you any good sohools here fcr dour children 1' He an ewered with an air of astonishmept, "Ob, dear, yes, sir: all our children go to shbool; Sue law obliges aus to send them to school, and provides goon schools for them." " When I reached Munich, I engaged, accord ing to my usnal custom, a poor man as my guide. I asked him to take me to see some of tue schools, where the children of the poor people were educated, and told him, that I did Lot ish to visit the best, but the worst schools in the city. He answered me, " Bar, we have no bad sechoolr hero ; the government has done a great deal for our schools, and they are all very good." I said, ' Well, take me to the worst that 3on know." lie aunaswred again, " I don't know any poor one, hot I will take you to the one where my own children go. I am a poor rman, arind cannot afford to pay anything for tie rldocation of my children, I:.,i many of the cotldren that y)u will ace there. are like my own, sent to the school at thu ,x p'~e ot f the city. 'Actordiirngly, after pasaiLg evez al liargt anti hatltnuitme schools for pirimaary inle ri ct .t, we proceeded to the one, hbich the ch.hlte, ot cmy poor guide attended. It was a lofty ard handsome bul;ding, four stories high, and about (i; feet broadi. In the toe ntpper etornes, all the teachers, of whom there were ten edu catel ten attacl:ed t tthe invtitut:on, resided. On the lower floors, there were ten class roomse, ersc'. bLet 20) fe-t long, 16 broad, and 14 feet h:ih, cld firred up with parallel rows of dreki, maps, drawing-boards, and school books Five of these spacious clase-rooms wore for the boys, and five for the girls. The children were' all c:amslfied according to the time of entering the school." I wernt tirst into the second crass room. The children were so clean and respectably dressed, that I could not believe they were the children of poor persons. I expressed my doubt to sy guide. His answer was, "My children are here, sir ;" and then turning to the teacher, he requested hinm to tell me, who were the parents of the children present. The teacher made the children stand up one after another, and tell me, who their parents were. From thbm I learned, that two were the aors of counts, one the son of a physician, one of an oflicer of the royal honeehold, one of a porter, and others of mechanical artisane, and of laborers, who were too poor to pay for their children's education, and whose ctildren were clothed and educated at the expense of the town. They all eat at the saue desks. They were all clothed with equal rtapectability. In their manners, dress, cleanliness. and appearance, I could discern no striking diff.reace. " 1 v;sited a prieAt who directed one of the largo educational etablisahrnets in the cit). Ile told ame that they had estrabehed eigLt nortial colleges in Bavaria for the edueation oft teachiri, and that two of these had been ape cially set apart for the educatiton of Pr..,etant teachers Ite seemed to make very iiht of all d.flicultien ariing frum religii',s dlif ferenco s, and spoke of oduca ton an of a nii:" tional work, which it was neceisary to iccooll p!ish, ty the joint .fforts of all reltgious parties. e I remember particularly a visit paid to one school in Monich, which may be fairly taken me an example of all; for all the schools in that city are remarkably good. When I en tared I did not know anything aboat the j ojsjHje. ro wj saja j o jejy the be were all the children of trades-people. I therefore asked the teahober to tell me what their parents were. He answered: 'The two boys you see here are the sons of counts ; yonder is the child of a tradesmen; there is the son of a physician ; there, a son of one of the courts' servants;' and so he continued to point out others, who were the children of professional men, shoemakers, tailors, etc. I then said, 'Have you any here, whose parents are so poor as not to be able to pay anything for their education, and who are consequently dependent on the town charity for their in struction t' ' Oh I yes,' he immedlately an swered : ' the one yotrsee yonder (pointing to a very clean and respectable looking child) is one, and there is another ;" and he continued to single out several others, who were paid for, and clothed, at the expense of the city." Is this a dream or a romance of the golden aget Or Is it a Jesuit f.brication to deceive both Catholics and Protestants aliket What! the sons of the poor laboring men ofaCatholic Kingdom going to the same schools, studying the ssme lessens, sitting on the same benches, and taujht by the same teachers in com panionship with the children of the wealthy, the intelligent, even with those of the aristo cracy of the land. But so it is ; there is no room for doubt, for the witness to the facts is aPro testant and was employed by the Protestant University of Cambridge to prepare the work whiclrwas publlsbedly that igstltatitin only are the childree of the pooreat taughit t~e same chboole, but they are clothed so respect ably at tile publio cost that their fellowship is neither fifensive nor repulsive to their superiors. The Kingdom has about 4500 000 inhabi tants; the Protestant minority being about 1,000,000. This minority has the full and com plete control of the education of their own children, and while the majority have six normal schools for the education of Catholic teachers, the Protestants have two normal schools for educating and training Protestant teachers for the Protestant schools of tha minority. This is just hat Catholic ed:cation requires in New Orleans. A Catholic Normal School for thle Ireparation of Catholic teachers, a Catholic bipeiintecdent to exa.mine teachers and lock after the schools, a Catholic Board of Education to have exclusive control of the education of all the Catholic children of bhe city, without oiy interference whatever from non-Catholic, for why shonld Methudists, In fidels, Jeew or Preoylterians ask to havo any thing to say or do rerarding Crtholmo educa tion, any more tLhan CatLolics in Austria, France, Bclgium or ;avatil have concerning P'rutestant educiation I Cii.tI'su. " Aumong imany Catholics," :Ias the Are Mares "wlho do Lot niegkct t.tir Relig ot, there exists a lamentable disregard fo,r, or Ignorance of, many ho'y practices recommend ed Lb the Church. liHw umany Catholic bouges there are where there is never to be seen a drop of holy water, a staten, a crucifix, a blessed candle or palm I These sacred objects, given us to be a ,lo;aection, or as me morials of what should be dear to us, deserve the same reverence and love from as that our forefathers always gave them. What a jeer ing look of incredulity is evinced by many amongst us when miention is unade of any miracle that is not 'saLd in the Bible ! With what an air of contemptuous disbelief they hear or read of anything in connection with the mystic life, such as ecsatases, revelations, eto. ! How uneasy they seem when the subtject of the heroic ants of penance done by the saints, or of the simplest practices of bodily mortifi cation, happens to come across them! How loudly and pathetically do they not protest against the noble sacrifces which sorme favor ed souls are inspired to make, whereby they break asunder the dearest ties, and shut them selves out of the world behirnd the grille of a monastery or convent. lioe spirit of Faith mnakes a true Catholio appreciate the beasty, the reasonableness, the sublimity and the utility of all thb'e practices and acts; whilst the want of tut ispirit tmat:es them tIn con demnid as extravagan., as useless or un mean ing.

After uttering this semi threat, which failed 1 not to produce its effect upon the individal whom he addressed, 8quire Townshend terned abruptly toward his nephew, who was stand t ing by the table. " Now, Master Ssobeverill, you may take a lesson from this gentleman, who bath been born and bred among the Papists, and bath, a by Oud's grace come to see the error of his ways and theirs, and bath foreeworn a oreed which he now sees to have been an idolamroue superstition and a nest of treason,'and bath a joined our pure reformed faith, for which our glorious martyrs suffered in the fires of Smith field in Bloody Mary's days.
