Once in every year the execative ocers make an b o annuity apportionment to eash family or single individual, which is to be for use for that year for personal expenses. There is in I every village a store, in which all kinds of goods are kept, and which are delivered to members of the society without profit; a re eord of each person's purchases is kept, and at r the end of the year the amount is dedonoted from the annuity, so that very little money is i used. If a member withdraws from the soci- 3 oty, what he pets in is returned, without in tersest or increase. If a member dies, and is f the head of a family, his share or interest in 1 the society is divided among his le~al heirs 4 and placed to their credit on the bcoks of the I society.

THE POPE ON THE FRENCH ELECTIONS. o In his address to the pilgrims from An- d goer, on Saturoay, Sept. Ivun, d. Irr'1y L Father, as reported ip the Paris Univers. I spoke as follows with regard to the French a elections and France herself : t "'You will say to God, we have come to a Implore Thee to give as strength and coun e sel in these dificalt circumstances for France. where it is so necessary that these two gifts should accompany the electors ii I and the elected. Representatives have to I, S b nn-ra May Heve grant if I that those who-have to elect them may, e, divested of all party spirit, choose men who I have the strength to resist the evils men acing France and all society. May Heaven grant the elected may be compact, and o that, in concert with the Government, they et may repress internal enemies and resist a those from without. You have internal a enemies who are undermining, and external p enemies who are menacing you. Te in Sternal enemies are undermining and mon- * acing you through the Press and by every k kind of iniquity. They must be repressed, , lest the external enemies should profit by a your internal dissensions to arrive at their t, end, which is that of combatting not only ti France, but also the Catholic religion. I 0 pray to God to Inspire you to choose per- it sons free from party spirit, who have God 81 I, before their eyes, and whose aim is the 0 dignity and grandeur of your nation, and a e the defence of its true interests. May He , h, bear the prayers I have addressed to Him ', during these days, in order that France, w e by means of prayer, may exert herselt to a obtain those good things which are neces- tl o sary for her. I am well aware that the o u course pursued by a part of that nation is " that of prayer and humility. How it b pleases God to see her thus prostrate, 2 humble, and repentant before Himl ti Ot , my God ! regard with favour France, the i . founder of so many works of charity, but ti e also, alas! of so many works of iniquity, a for which, with other nations, she is justly a f punished. 0 God ! bless France, which is a a chosen part of the vineyard planted with r h Your bands and watered with Your blood." P Pius IX. AND M. THIERS -According to one of the Italian papers, as soon as the f death of M. Thiers was known there some i prelates hattened to carry the news to the I f Holy Father, who merely remarked. "Let 1 us respect the decrees of Providence !" The f next day, his Holiness, talking of the sad e den deeth wit' various persons around I, him, said :-"lt is assuredly an event of greet importance for France, and which may have serious consequences; but I do O not s'-are the opinion of those who rejoice at that lose, as if it would hbe an embarras a ue-nt the lee, for the men in power.

Rlso Read Levy Brothers' osrd on fifth page. MR. sUrr's MNIarwaTO. The Irish dally papers, of the 7th of Septem- I her, published the followiug letter from Mr. Battbn the obstruction question: To the Rev. Joseph Murpby, OCC.. Perss: LoNDON, September 31, 1877. 1 Myf Dear ir-I am greatly obliged to you for accepting oy apology for not baying soonert replied to the letter you addressed to me be fore the prorogation. I sit down before leanr 1 ing London to fulfil my promise of writing to I you on tbhe utject wbhion is generally known as "the policy of obstruction." I cannot but i feel that at some time not far distant I shall be called ou in some frmn fully to discues that t question with the Irish people. It would be I impossible in the compass of tnis letter to treat the subject at length. I can only sag- I gest to you bome observations which appear I to lie on the very surface of the question. I That I mnest afterwards enter on a fuller die cussion is no ol.je:iou to my briefly placing t before you my views, nor yetto the publication of those views, which yon desire. If I understand rightly, the course of con dui t, or "policy," recommended for our adop tion is, that the Home Rule members shonid j take part in the 4iscussion c8 ali Eug1su aud Imperial measures in such a way as to impede and lnconvenieoce the general progress of the j business o0 the House. It is with this otjeOt I that the interference is proposed, and from the t approving references to the proceedings of last session we most understand that they are to be a the model-it may be an imperfect one-of a the course which is suggested for the fuotre. I I am sure that snch a course, or anything a like it, would be fatal to Irish interests in Par. liament. In the first place, it is obvious toat 1 it would alienate from as the sympathy and support ofiha laTirge arddlnarousteirTgclas English and Sootoh members won, on general i Irish questions, give no their support. I Of tne extent to which even the otion of last session etffected this It is diffiult for any- I ose not in the House of Commons, and in con- a stant intercourse with its members, to form an t adequate judgment. A very strong feeling c was excited against the whole Home Rule I party by the acts of some of its members. which I were interpreted as obstructive. I am quite a sure that this feeling exercised a disastrous I effeot upon every division we attempted. I know it did so both ou Mr. Sbaw's motion for Home Rule and on Mr. Meldun's on the Bo- I rough. Franch:le, from personal pommunioa- I tion made to We by members who excused t themselves for not voting for thore motions. t On the second reading or the University Bill 1 it unfortunately produced a mischievous re- t sult Upon that Bill I had every expeutation I of a considerable English support. I had the a assurances of that support both by speaking f and votung from a quarter of the House from t which it would have been peculiarly valuable- I I mean the advanced Liberal English members, 1 who are strongly opposed to what is called de- t nominational education, but were ready to state a that as to Irish education the question was one upon whibh the wishes of the Irish people I most prevail. The second reading of the bill was fixed for Thursday, July 26th. It fell certainly on evil days. On Tuesday, the I 24th, there was one of the exciting obstruo- I tionits' contest-two motions for sojonrument I in which the numbers were one against 147. In the course of an angry discussion, the Chan cellor of the Exchequer actually moved hat an Irish member had been guilty of contempt, and thg very day on which I moved the aecond reading of the bill he placed on the table of the House the resolutions by which he pro-. posed to secure the progress of business. All this was fatal to any English support Those who had promised me their votes and their speeches came and told me it was mlapose sible for them, in the face of the strong feel iog that was produced against the whole Irish party, to give any support to the bilL The disoueeson, however, went on. About 100 members remained to listen to my stItemenr. After a debate, to which I venture to think all the argument and reason was on our side. the bill was thrown out by a majority of 200 to 55. Only three English members voted with ne-one of them, 1 believe, by mistake. I did not, however, regret that discuseion. I believe we succeeded in placing the question n ite true light before the country, and we waerm able to exhiblt a Kgrea preponderance of Irinh represunrtaives l its favor. Inclutl ing teiller, the numbers were 54 to 13 No Miniuter spoke, with the necessary exception of the Irish `tcretary; and I most say the tone of his peech very singslarly crrntristed with teb epirit of the observations iirade by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Lo:tu ln re ply to the Dublin deputationu, a,d sabso quently iii the Hones of Commons it was unders'ood that Irish affairs had occupied the attention of a Cabinet council that day; but the great Irish question was not how to re dress the grivainces of Ireland, but how to repress the obstruotiveue's of Irish mem bers,. -1 can only say that I am sure the discussion on that bill would havy had a very different result if I had presented it with the weight and authority of a united party-if oiroum stances had not at the moment alienated from us all parties in the House-and if our thoughts B and exertions had been exclusively given to - the great object at issue, instead of being turned away from it by the miserable subjects that distract us. 3 This was not the only question upon which I was made bitterly to feel the evil cffeots of the course that was parsoed. I had made many efforts to have a diacussion of the land Squestio, by a motion for an address to the 1. Crown to irquire into the workingof the Land , Act. A short time before this my lamented friend, Sir. Colman OLoghlen, had obtained g an opportunity of bringing forward such a motion. He told me that he had been asseeured d of the support of some influential Liberals, and that they led him to hope for that of the g entire party. In one of our last interviews be told me that they had found it impossible to e induce members to vote for the motion in the il then temper of the House, and that with great - relucntance he had determined on giving up his a motion. n I have selected these two inoidents of the session partly becausc I think they ought to be generally known, and partly beoause they strikinogly illustrate bow completely a polioy r of obstruction will alienate from ous sympathy e and support. n But this involves another and a very serious Smatter. If once this policy of obstruction be entered upon it will be impossible to carry Sanything in Parliament by discussion and de bate. Indeed, the only excuse made for the Spolicey is that all appeals to the justioe o d reason of Parliament are in vain, and that ai Swe can do is to, try "sterner" measnres. I can e not but think that this involves a revolution re in our policy of which many who are ready to . assent to it do not see the nature or extent. d It is the abandonment of consntitutional action, asc ofthe adoption of uncosalitutional action in iti telad. 'f'is will be better underatood as we look at the necessary oonsequences of the sug * gested course; but I do not hesitate to say " that that course is in itself both uuconstitnu 1- tional and illegal. If it is anyvthing more than ie a mere saam it means that we are to prevene g. Parliament from transacting its ordinary budi re nees, in order to force them to do as we wish rupon certainu Irish measuree. No one will say that is a constitutional course. e Auyune to whom tbis line of action is pion posed must ask himself to what at wl1 lead. No one will say that a perpeteal obstruction o, t all businees is to be the perpetual condition of the British Parliament. ParliA.ment must put t down obstruction, or obstruction most put 7 down Parliament. The widest of all speolao d tlons is to suppose that Parliament will ever grant Home RBnle to get rid of any amount ol annoyance or ionconvenience that Irish repre santatives aosn cause. To suppose this or to suppose that any mewsure ould be forced att upon Paliament by these means, is loosist- tee enu with all notions of representative govern- I meat. There is no rule that Parliament would ea not adopt, no statote whioh it would not pase, Iri rather than yield to the dictation of a few men sir who attempted to use the forms of the House I to destroy it. But we are told that neither rule or statute En, is necessary. Both parties have been very ola candid. One party tells the House of Comn- In mons: "I intend to use the forms of the the House to defy your authority." The loader of ord the House of Commons replies: "If you at- I tempt it the House will deolare you guilty of she contempt and exclude you from taking part in rev its business." Let me ask any obstruoctionist the what he intends to do if air Stafford Northoote has carries out his threat? If any Irish member ful ,sdeo!ared guilty of wilful obstrootion, and as it a penalty suspended from the business of the an House, you have no remedy but to submit, un- ble less you are ready to resort to that slima ratio the to which if you were really ready you might cot just as well have resorted at first. I ask of in every Irishman seriously to consider all that ren ie involved in that change from constitutional as to unconstitutional action to which we are stil asked to assent. im Thbe arguments by which this proposal is ple justified are exactly those by which a bolder des action has failed." " There is no hope from the ale justice or the generosity of the British Parlia-. of ment." "England has never oonceded any- fini thing to aus except when she has been coeroed." dra We must coerce here now by-a policy of ob- the struction ! ! Is this really to be the logical wh sequence of these high-sounding statements9 abi Is this the inference they draw who cheer the Iri sentiment val Let us not shut our eyes to the real issue. am Teat issue is: Is oonstitutional aotien to be all abandoned, and are we to enter on an nncon- m3 to wthnnt winu here we in are to be led or how many revolutionary pas- on seons we may excite T hi I have made this letter already too long, but for I cannot avoid adverting to some of the rea- cot sons which have been assigned. It is said son that there is no hope of gainlog anything by wt constitutional action, and that the present ree Hones of Commons has contemptuously re- no feseu to listen to the statement of Irish griev- my ances. Both assertions are entirely entree. I have set in seven Parliaments. and I never re member a House of Commons in which there was shown a greater disposition to concede to wb Ireland eqail privileges with those which wil England enjoys. Last year our motion for ho bouheeold franchise in towns was defeated by - the narrow majority of 13-166 voted for it; 179 against it. Those who voted fuor it were brought together by no. party influence. The Ministry opposed it-the leaders of the Oppo astion refused us their support. Does the fact that in spite of this we nearly defeated oar the Ministry prove an indifference in the en House of Commons to the grievances of Ire- a land t'On the bill for assimilating the muni- is cipal franohise to that of England the divi- ins sion was 148 to 176. On a still more important ing measuore-tbat for transferring the manage ment of oounty affairs from grand juries to c councils elected by the people-the numbers anc were 153 to 181. No one acquainted with par- Lo liameutary tacOtic could faill to see that in the K, ordinary course of events these divisions it- sin sured the early carrying of these questions. -a There are those among my countrymen who a will believd me when I say that in toy soul and conscience I am satisfied that if the ordinary I course of events had been allowed to proceed Ste -if the sympathy and support had not been eo f alienated by a system of vexation from which Go I can see no result-every one of those meas- t ores would have become law during the pre- I sent Parliament. The people in our towns [ would have enjoyed by the establishment of mo household suffrage the selection of their own Eis representatives and their own municipal an- to thorities, and the farmers in the country tan t electing men to manage their county affairs a, woald have enjoyed, so far as those affairs do. were concerned, a privilege virtually amount tuing to Home Rule. Pr It is said again that the Home Role party have failed. I have heard it Atated as a r-- tat i proach, that the only bill we have carried is the Municipal Privilege Bill, In the name of t, [ common sense, what did the men who talk so I expect 7 Did they think that sixty men t5 ai stunt six hundred had nothing to do but l' e t, g., over to Westminster and bring bsok , l.Home Rule 7 I deny that the Home Rule o p'rty havo failed. Whenuever the proper oc- ea easion arises I sha.l be ready to prove that c e never did a party with tt.e same tumbers w d and the same resources achieve eo much. At y the close of tue lost session we had consoli- - , dated a pa-ty which had wou for itself re spect rand iniauence in the Hous.. This in 1t a i.tself was no unimportant serviou to our e countrr. We had advanced in their positlon ,t in Pnrlamentand public opinion every one of th the neasures for whiuh the irich peuple are Ri o sanxious. We prevented some bad legislation i. and we forwarded some good. Since our - party has been formed, with the exception of in the renewal of the Coercion Acts, not a ,t single measure adverse to the interests of the it Irish people has been passed. What changes to a- we were able to effect in that measure it m would be too long to recount. If I never did 20 ts anything else I woald consider it abundant to reward tor all the toils and sacrifices Parlia- 13 ag mentary life has brought to me to feel that I p its poucked from that Act in an adverse assembly au the odious power of visiting at any hour of C bh the day or night the home of the Irishman, of whioh was then intrustod to the police. It is do to the presence of a un:ited and compact Irish t ad parry that onu owe that we are not still eu he during many of the severities of the" old ,d Coercion Act. It is to them that you owe that ed one-third of Ireland is free at this moment ed from any Coercion Act at all. It is to the same C a cause you owe it that you still enjoy the bene- 1 ed fit of impartial juries, instead of being sent Is, back-as a Tory committee actually recom be mended-to the system of selection, or, in he other words, packing by the sheriff. It is, I to repeat with pride, to the presence of the same he Irish party that you owe It that in the four a tat years during which that party has existed his not a single piece of legislation has been passed of which the national sentiment can the complain. And then, I say again, we are to asked, What measures have yon passed t We, r ay who are fifty-seven in an assembly of more than Icy f50, and with a Ministry, on the whole, the hy strongest the country has seen for years Does any English Liberal ask what measurss the aus great Liberal party has pasedt Believe me be tnis ory that we have done nothing is not the ry arraignment of the Irish party, but of couosti- a de- tutional action. Unhappily, there is a large the and an earnest, and a very active class of our or oountrymen, botta in England and Ireland, all who have learned, it may be by bitter expe- I an- rience, to distrust constitutional acts, and who ion have tolerated our effort as an experiment that to was sure to fail, and so prove that then their ct. plan for the redress of Irish wrongs is the only mid true one. I cannot help thinking that the its assertions that are so recklessly made of the we failure of conetitutional action resemble very ag- much, to my mind, the impatient conclusions say of such men. But even were there trath in tu- the allegations, how could yon remedy this by ian resorting to "obstructiont" Our course ought enc to be to take earnest counoil together, and see si- if by any means we could bring greater ish rnergy, or activity, or wisdom into our onu say cite. Bat if any evil genius prompted us to at io- tempt that rebellion in the Houso of Commons, ad. wulch would be far more disastrous and far Sof loes dignified than rebellion in the field, what of would be the resuenlt I ant It would make all really constitutional so put tion hopeless. Ia- It would alienate from us all sympathy and ner support from asy party in the House of Com of mons. re- It wronuld alienate from us the sympathies of to the Beglish demooracy, who would see in ao attempt to lower the Hoeso of Common as at. tack upon Eaglead and themselves. It would exasperate and pa nstional antipathies between En M ald Irishmen which every tree Iri Ot.hm d. sire to see ended. It would alienate free" us otherb bi" the members of the Homas of Commons or the English democracy, the great and la1eentisa ola of our own countrymen. who would se in the abandonment of constitutional action the triumph of princoiplee adverse to soeial order. It would break up (never in our lifetime-.l should, perhaps, say in my lifetime--.o.be revived) that Irish parliamentary partlletd that Home Rule Party in the country wblsh t has taken years of totl and tbought and wateh. ful care to build: and after a very few Ltoeab it would end in an easy and what would be an ignominioos defeat, after scenee and scram. bles and unseemly struggles through whioh the dignity of the canouse and the country could not pass without grievous hort. Abroad, in every nation of Europe whihob v)lae rep resentative institutions, we sboold bb 4eapieed as having shown ourselves unit for thoee in stitutions. At bome we should have given an impetus to all thoea pasions aemong our peo ple which every lover of his oountry would desire to aseuagea ....... I ......I.. . the en clearly, I would ask of you, ahd every lover of our poor old country, to use Sour in flenoe to prevent the national cause being drawn into such action. I earnestly hope that those who seem disposed to adopt it may, when we come to fair and foall. discussion, abandon it. I have no fear that with the Irish people rash and wild oouncils will pre vail; but, at all events, my part istaken. I am not indifferentto popularity. I value above all earthly things the regard and seoetion of my country. I have learned to feel some pride in a seat in Parliament, and to set eome value on poitailIAnUenoan. jnu s, In an n he-a choice put to me 1 would forfeit them all for ever rather than betray my duty to my country by sanctioning for one bour the re sort to an nnoonstitutlonal oonrse of conduct which I know in my heart could, in its final result, bring to toe cause of that oountry nothing but disaster and diegrace.-I remain, my dear Father Murphy, yours sinoerely, Isaac Btrr.
