The Italians of thie city raised $150 for the eelebratlou of a Requiem Mass for the late Kle Viotor Emanuel, but for reasons sufficient to Ct Churoh, Bishop Elder thought.best not to permit it.--Vickabrg Herald, Jan. 29. We understand, on good authority, that the Bishop seswered that there was some reason to doubt whether the King had reconciled himi self to the Church, and received the Sacra ment. The Mass would not be permitted until there was satisfactory evidence on that point. The steed increaseee of the congregation of the church of the Holy ame o ary, n glee, and the growing wants of the parish may, at no distant day, necessitate the sending of additional Mariat Fathers to that church, henoe the arraignments mentioned in our last Issue, as having been made in consequence of Father Bellanger'e departure for Europe are only temporary. No formal appointments have been made or intended, except with the pro viso pro tem. General Richard Taylor's "Reminiscences of the Civil War," which we publish on the third page of to-day's paper, will be found exceedingly interesting. iHe explains how and why the breach between Gen. Joseph E. Johnston and President Davis occurred, and indalges in some severe strictures upon the oearse of Vice President Stephens daring the war, and his apparent indifference to the fate of Mr. Davis when that illustrious man was In prison after the war. Mr. Stephens, we learn by telegraph from Washington, Intends to neswer General Taylor in the International eeleae. One of the most interesting passages to Louieianians of Gen. Taylor's article, is that giving a sketob of the celebrated Tiger Rifles and their renowned commander, Major Robert Wheat.

Mr. Lloyd who recently preshed a sermon on "Eternal Punish met" an wbhich we commented editorially, thinks that our remarks did not do him jstieM, sad in this connection sends us the fllowinlg eommunieation : INRw OrLuras, Jan. 30, 1878. Der Sir :-My attention has been aelled to as editorial in your paper op "A Free ible." Now if a man takes the trouble to fsorm himself aeeurately concerning my views I have no objection to his pronoanc ing them heretical and damning if that be his oenvietio'. I honor him fora straight forward and honest performance of what be considers to be his duty. Baut then the right to critieise my views involves, as it seems to me, the duty of findiog out what they really are. In the only criticism yeon make you obarge me with taklog "punesh meant literally and "life" figuratively. Now the passage referred to is an argumes urm ad homisem. The point made is that if Dr. Palmer takes "life literally he ought to take "death," the antithesis of life, liter ally, and that in that case he would have the annihilation of the wicked instead of theireternal punishment. In the very next paragraph I gave my own view, via: that neither "life" nor "death" Is to be taken literally, but that both together, the re ward of a man's good deeds and the pun ishment of his bad deeds, make up every man's lot. I explained that In a very meat. "A man's lost opportunities are lost forever, and because of them the man is forever less sympathetic, less intellectual, less holy than he might have been, and so, In a very definite and easily comprehended sense is punished forever." I asimply tried to prove that while the past cannot be wiped out, every man, whether in this or any other werld, may, if he chbooses, make better use of the future; that God desire the repentance, the reformation, of every one of His creatures, and that, with His Infinite reseurces, and eternity at His com mand, it is not unreasonable to suppose He can accomplish ail that He desires. Be kind enough to make the correction and oblige, yours respectfully, W. J. LLOrD. We should be unwilling to feel that Mr. Lloyd, or any other gentleman, rested, however erroneously, under the lmpreseion that we had misconstrued him and were not willing to correot the error; therefore we insert his expostulation in fall, as above. Still we cannot see what correction is to be made. Mr. Lloyd says that Dr. Palmer took the word "life" literally and that he himself was simply pointing out the logical consequence of that position. But we --annot agree with Mr. Lloyd on that point. In the puasage quoted by him from Dr. Palmer's sermon, the Doctor did not, we are confident, understand the word literally, b.at as a figurative equivalent for the word "Heaven." The distinction is very per -eptible. For instance;- aceording to the Catholio faith, Infants dying without bap tism cannot go to Heaven ; they cannot go to Hell either, being guiltless of actual sin; therefore they are relegated to an existence happy and immortal, but not Heaven, not glorified by the visible presence of God. Such souls, then, have eternal life in the literal sense, that is existence, but not in he sense meant b Dr. Palmer. As to Mr. Lloyd's individual views in regard to the character of future ex istence, we think that a correction is as little due as on the other point, if his ser mon was correctly reported. In fact we clipped out and inserted his own language, the following being a part of it: We believe that, sooner or later, every one of God's intelligent creatures will become a loving, obedient child. When that "sooner or later" shall have finally come to pass will not that be an end of the punishment that the reconciled souls had been in the meantime suffering t Mr. Lloyd says : no; even after full reconcilia tion there will still be during all eternity, a loss of some higher stage of happiness and glory that might have been achieved. This loss itself will be an eternal punish ment. Here, again, we are unable to agree with our correspondent. He uses the word "punishment' in an entirely arbitrary sense. Punishment does not mean the absence of reward, but the reverse of reward. If a man earn only five dollars when he might have earned ten, no one would con sider him punished by receiving the five only. No man is "punished" by not re ceiving what he has not earned. It is a mere absence of reward. We cannot, therefore, thoink that we misrepresented Mr. Lloyd in saying, as we did, that he preached "a gospel in which people are told that there is no eternal punishment no Hell." That gentleman says that "both together, the reward of a man's good deeds and the panishment of his bad deeds make up every man's (future) lot." "Both together I" But where in the world (or in the Bible) does he get his authority for putting them "both together I" Be thinks that each and every seaoul will have some reward and some pun ishment-forever. The Bible, however, divides souls into two classes, some des tined to plunishment, others to reward: "And these shall go into everlasting pun ishment~, but the righteous into life eternal." Mr. Lloyd thinks that each one belongs to both classes and that each one shall go into Severlasting panishment and into life eter nal too. We can't agree with the reverend Sgentleman in this understauding of the -matter, though we say so withiall respect, for he has as much right to his opinion s e have to ours, and, we doubt not, bhes inves Slted the teat far more lndaustrionusiy has m hare ever done or shall ever do it Indeed, it we bad to rely upon our own I opinion in so momentous a matter, we 1 should drop It in despair sand not have any 1 opinion at all. If, therefore, Mr. Lloyd .1 find that we eal his doctrine a bhrsy, we I hope that he will not Jtiy uas by seppos- I ing any amount of "eonietton" on oar I part. We ashould ensider it a vast imper i tinecee to set up our interpretation sI' infallible and another's as hretiesl. If we I call it a heresy, it is beesase the Catholie I Churah asys it is a heresy. It will be remarked that Mr. Lloyd calls I his opinion a "view"-"I gave my own l view." But is a view suficient in a matter of so much importance as this J If God has instituted a hell, in the s common acceptance of that term, be must e have intended it as a warning as well as a punishment. He must have intended that I it should set as a powerful check upon sin. I But how could that be unless men knew of s its existence? To suspect it, to doabt it, a to have a "view" about it, would not do; I the Intended effect would be abated or I lost. And that this uncertainty would exist if men were left to form an opinion from a text is clear from the case of so intelligent and earnest a man as Mr. Lloyd. There- ( fore there must be an infallible tribunal to I define the truth when men doubt and difer 1I Dissolution of Parties. The silver controversy appears to be a workiag wonders in Washington. It a presents an entirely new issue and one is c which sectional interests take a shape en- c tirely different from that which has been so prominently visible for a number of years. The map of conaliting interest Is rearranging itself on a line more of long tode than of latitude. Instead of North against 8oath, it is getting to be rather Es]t against West, though with nothing like the completeness of the former antag onism. This time it is rather a confleit ofa elass interests, and becomes sectional mere- 4 ly by virtue of the predominance of i different elasues in different seetions. 1 Trading capital is located chiefly in the North-Eastern States and holds all the rest of the country In a kind of vassal age-the vassalage of debt. It is to the interest of these old and populous States that their olaims shall be paid in gold; it is equally to the interest of the debtor States that a much cheaper currency than gold shall be made a legal tender. They desire to have a silver coin, worth only ninety-two cents in gold, called a dollsr no doubt they would profit still more ed tensively if- a' olunrorth only twente- ve cents in gold should be recognised as the legal dollar. The payment of debts would then become quite an amusement for an agricultural people whose products enhance in nominal value in proportion to the de preciation of the currency. We do not propose at this time to discuss the policy or propriety of this Western proposition. If we were satisfied of its alleged ishonesty, o course be obliged to denounce it, but it seems that there is a good deal to be said on both sides of that question. Bondholders are S-the principal opponents of the measure, and yet it is urged that when the orig inal bonds were issued, silver coin of the value now contemplated was a lawful ten der. Then again, as to ordinary creditors, most of the existing debt of individuals I was contracted when greenbacks were worth less than ninety-two cents in gold to the dollar. We do not, therefore, fnd it necessary just now to side with either Mr. Lamar on the one hand, or with Mr. B. F. Butler on the other. It may be remarked, however, in this connection, as a moral curiosity, that Mr. Lamar, who represents the debtor population, stands upon the lofty platform I of fall payment in gold, while Mr. Butler, from within a few miles of rich, bond , holding Boston, is a champion of the silver currency policy. s There is a point, however, that attracts Sattention even among those who do not e know which policy to adopt, and that is the political upheaval wrought by the in a hexent force of the question. The pocket ;, nerve is a wonderfolly sensitive and sym I pathetic one. Let an iuse arise, like this, e in which large pecuniary interests are at e stake, and see how quickly the sentimental - antipathies rnd alliances of years are dissi pated. Your rich bondholder may have , hated the Southern brigadier most intense e ly, as he supposed, ever since the war, yet y let him find the brigadier voting against It silver, and the prejadices of several lusters e are dissipated asswiftly as a morning's mist. h He finds the brigadier to be a tip-top fellow, y who in the ignorance of youth made some s- light mistake about States'rights and other r, abstruse political dogmas. On the other i- hand an ardent silver ex-Confederate is i: found poking "old Butler" in the ribs or i- slapping him on the shoulder with the " familiarity of ancient friendship. o The fact is that the sectional party line was an unnatural one after the issue of r- slavery had passed away. Human affairs Id are, in the long run, governed by interest, me though, no doubt, important episodes are it, based on the side influences of hatred and re other pasions. Those very passions, s- though, as a general thing will be foand to n have been areasedby a eemnlet of inteets, It. nte or sipjCsag qu edo their work ot ales end leave their legacy ofpradle, but ooner or later that must gie way before the iaflmeae of now interests ere sting new e lsei nt and obliterating all traces of the old. There is actually no : oafiliet otl tes.-te between our Northern and southern States setionally, but the ieal confdets of interests, to be found always sad everywhere, are rsther those of classes Irrespective of locality. Capitl, I North, louth, sad West, alistes together in its onflict with labor; money knows no sectional ealousiese in ts designs upon the profits of production. And now tbat we see old sectional pre Judies giving way so rapidly before this nw alliaes of class Interests, now that so ciety is coming back one more to the nor mal control of buslness esigenoles, now that polities are forming their line of battle along a frontler of financial pollcy in stead of a parallel of latitude, the most keptical may. begin to realise that the In oaenees of the late war mwe nearly ex pended as an agency of evil to the South.

We do not know how many persons are deprived of spiritual help by the absence of 180 clergymen, but if we give a proportion of three thousand soule to each--and it Ia by no mesas exoesive-we find that half a mil. lion of Catholis are sufering grievously for their falth. Bow they are to obtain redress is a problem only to be solved by the inscrutable wisdom of Prinoe Bismarok. We were amued a few weeks ago that this war against the Ohurch was wearying out the agents chosen to cariy t on. It was taken up warmly at irst, whea enthusiasm was strong ; then it beume a matter of duty, shorn of novelty; and now, even to the patient German, it begins to savor of barbarism. Possibly a compromise would be seeepted by the Chancellor, but we do not see bow compromise can be entertained by the Church. Those who are wantonly sad wickedly attacked, without provocatlon and for no fault of their own, sand the extinction of whose natural rights is the object of the as sault, can scarcely be expected to placate the aggressor by concessions of the kind be would demand. The seandal, therefore, is likely to continue for some time longer. Bismarck may tire in the end, or a stronger arm may inter pos; but we have not reached the point at which our German brethren need look for much slief"t .

He is the guest of Father Corooran, pastor of Bi. Joseph's, ' Brooklyn, who was one of his former students at All-Hallows. The occasion of the Bishop's arrival was availed of by a number of clergymen to tender to him an expression of their affeo tion and regard for their beloved professor, and the presentation of the testimonial which was in the form of a beautifully de signed Album, containing the portraits of his former students-with an accompanying ad dress, took place on the afternoon of Janu ary 23d. The attendance, in accordance with the express wish of Bishop Conroy, was con fined almost exclusively to the old students of All Hallows. Rev. Father Belle, of the Marist Order, was some three years ago Curate of the church in Algiers, where he did much for the advanoe ment of the religious interests of the people. By his untiring energy he also contributed greatly to the erection of the fine new church which now ornaments that district. The host of friends and admirers whom he left behind when he was transferred to his native coun try, England, will be pleased to learn that he is in the enjoyment of excellent health and is as zealous as of old.

The preeedi were to be devoted to St. Joseph' Orphan Asylum, and to the Bellef Fund of the Asm eintion. The public, considering the porposes to whish the admiseion mouney would be ap-A piled, and knowing the permers were cap ble of presenting something "Sae" In the way ofi emusement, doaked to the entertaiamentl I great number. LA early as 7 o'oloek ever available portion of the large hall was densely crowded. Those of the audience who could not secure seate wm thankful to get "stand ing room ;" others were satisfied with poosition on the toairway ; while many could not obtain even an entrance to the building. At 7:30 the ourtain rose upon the first pert, discovering to view the oustomary end mes with faes black as "burning Afrio's sons." A novel feature about this scene was the feet that the "middle man," as well as the Quart ette and other partiiepants, had not the slightest portion of "burnt cork" on their faces. The customary musical introduction by ths orchestra being finished, the Oriental ouartete, composed of Messrs. Bosh, Coggee ball, Dressel and Stumpf, sang that beautiful song, "Lutrow's Wild Hunt" with a precision of style, a delicacy of sentiment, and on atten tion to yariety of tempo that elicited the highest encomiams from all present. These a -' .... -rvd t,_ lhiah_ o .,lwmenti. paid them, and fully established the faet that there is no quartette in this oity superior to them. Then ensued the "funny business" of the boes, Mr. Milt.H. Duncan, who fairly con v-ed the house with laughter at his jokes ; and finally capped the climax with an inimita ble rendition of "Mary's Little Lamb." Fol lowing this was "Under the Snow," a ballad snag with grace and expression by Mr. Fred Bush. Mr. Gleason who had been "billed" oe thaeanbo was absent, but his place was excellently filled by Mr. DeBash who succeed ed in showing the audience that he is an "thbleplan persoaultor" of decided abltly. Judginl from their manlsetatione of pleasure they were more pleased than sorry at the substitution. Mr. Dreeel sang the ballad, "Won't You Kiss Me Good Night, Darling,' with a pathos and method that is rarely sur Previous'y to a very mirth-provoking finale by the company, Mr. De Busch sang "Angel Gabriel" in a manner oharacterized by "negro style" that should have been witnessed to be properly appreciated. A German faree, "Der Sohwabenetrieob," conoluded the first part. It was ably interpreted ; the cast collectively and individually exhibiting avlcomfoa worthy of more experienced players. e regret not having at hand a copy of the programme, so that we might be enabled to particularize some of the participants in the farce. Part Second opened with "Old Darkey Im personations" by Mr. Milt H. Duncan. This gentleman proved himself a finished artist. With a striot attention to detail, a rigid ob servance of custom, dress, and gait, he com bined a thorough knowledge of neceseary stage business. He posesses a most natural dialect, and is destined to be highly appreci ated wherever he will be seen or heard. Fol lowing him casme Messrs. Sherrod end Shelton in their celebrated acrobatic song and dance. These gentlemen no sooner entered on the stage than they were greeted with loud and continued applause-the audience thereby tee tifying to a previous acquaintance with these exponents of their special line of business. And right ably did they show the people that they were deserving of the honors paid them; for they sang and danced better than ever. Their "tumbling," somersaults and "flips," all in perfect time with the music, were marvell one. Mr. Van F- In his interpretation of the humorsome and singing Teuton, was, to put it briefly, simply "immense." Messrs. De Busch and Kammer in their specialties were very good. A duo, "Treibe, Treibe, obhiff loin," by Messrs. M. Federer and C. Babst was most pleasing to every German in the assem bly. "The Japanese Twins" concluded this part of the entertainment. In the play Messrs. Beynes and Joachim carried off the honors. Owing to the reception accorded the Oriental Quartette, the gentlemen composing it wer requested to favor the audience with another song. Accordingly they sang "Come where my love lies dreaming." The performance closed with a German fabe, "Grundlich Corirt," which was personated by the actore to the utmost satisfaotion of the audience. We noticed that the stage appointments and scenery were all new, and learned that they were the handiwork of Mr. Philip Antoni. The design and execution are worthy of any racenio artist. The St. Joseph's Association has every reason to congratulate itself upon its perform ance, the numerous attendance thereat, anud the pecuniary results which it has secured for the benefit of the orphans.
