The Pope will deliver an allocation and pro olaim the reestablishment of the Catholio hierarchy of Scotland, confirming the bishops appointed by Pinu II. A new Italia ministry has been formed C with Signor Cairoli, as president. It is under- C stood that Humbert will consent to a dissoln- fe tin of the Chamber of Deputies. Faxace.-The Senate by a vote of 153 to a 100 adopted the State of Slegs Bill. It pro- ti vides that the President can only declare a bh state of siege during a dissolution of the Chambers and in the event of a foreign war. The Bight wished also to permit its deolara- p tion in the event of insurreotion. This motion B was lost. Six thousand persons have been attacked It with measles in Lyons. T The type setters in several large printing t houses in Paris have struck work: This, takenin conjunction with the great strike of D the miners at Deoaseville, whioh is attributed to the instigation of the International, at traeets much attention. a Gen. Berthant has been appointed to com- h mand in Bordeaux, in place of Boohebooet. Othef important ehanges of commanding ot*- , cars impend. B BrSAI.-There is a crisis in the manufactur- B ing districts of Catalonia and in the com mercial centres on the Mediterranean coast, p where numerous fallures have taken place. i pne hundred and nineteen foactories have been a closed, and 9000 workmen thrown out of em- tl ployment. C plT a EASTERN QueTroIo.-Notwitbstanding A the confident assertions made last week, the o Treaty between Ruesia and Turkey, has not I yet been published, and England and Acstria tl seem so far to be as much in the dark con- t osrning its terms and provislene as the world a at large. Despite the mass of telegrams that ii have been received from the capitals of all I European countries, there is nothing tangible, a nothing upon which any opinion as to the im- 8 mediate future can be based, though all con- Ih rvey one and the same impression to the a reader, viz: that all the powers are placing a their troops and navies upon a war footing, t and saccumulating large supplies of war ma- I terials. Thus we still see all the hands, reg- a ular and extra, at Woolwiob, England, working ( sill ten o'olock at night; we find the Austrian .1 government securing an extraordinary appro- C priation of 60,000,000 florins, and bdally the I REusians occupying new strategic positions, s even going so far, it is said, as to commence T the concentration of troops on the Austrian t frontier. t Meanwhile there is no certainty as to the t meeting of the proposed Congress, one diffi- c culty with reference to its powers and scope e no sooner being settled than two or three f others are brought forward. d Advices from Tiflis state that typhus fever d is raging among the Roesian troops in Asia. I Gene. Mellikoff, Solowieff and Schelkownikoff are reported to have died. It is believed more men have been lost by sickness since the cessation of arms than on the battle field during the war. There seems to be imminent danger of a re volntion in Constantinople, and the streets c are continually patrolled by large bodies of I troops. The Turkish garrisons of Shumla and E Varna, numbering 58,000 men, besides 16,0.000 a Egyptian troops, are expected in Constanti- a nople. COnA.-Washington, March 19.-The De partment of State as in receipt oi cflioial infor. I mation down to the 5th inat,from the United I States Consul General at Havana, and reports I that up to that time the number of surrenders I in the Central Department wasee over 2000. 1 The insurgents still unaccounted for in Eastern I and Los Villos distriots were variously esti mated at from 2000 to 4000. UNITED STATES. WAsnrsioro.-The President has communi- , oated to the Senate theo correspondence regard ing the Fishery Treaty, whereby the United States is compelled to pay England 5,000,000. The correspondence is bulky, but contains nothing startling or new, and developes no I harp practice on the part of England or pal- a ble stupidity on the part of the United I tee. The commiseioners of the Freedman's Bank a have commenced the payments of 10 per cent. to depositors. Senator Howe has introdaced a resolntion a nesting the President to inform the Senate, I hether W. R. Whitaker, who recently presid ed in the BSuperior Criminal Court of the parish oLOrleans, was formerly employed, either in the internal revenue service or as Assistant I reasurer at New Orleans. If so, during what 4 od of time, and whether in either of such a pocties the said Whitaker is a defaulter to e United States, and to what amount and under what circumstances. MfJah 21.-Eight hours, as a day's work, commenolog at 7 o'clock, with an bour's Intermission, commenced to-day at the Navy Yardaqd on public buildings, and at the agri cultural grounds. The workmen are discon tented with the arrangement, but the oau thorlties see no other interpretation of the law. MISCELLANEOUS. From all parts of the Union we daily have r ts of commerolal failures in all lines of obusiness, even a number of the oldest and best houses succmbing. In Boston there is in ad dition a panio among the thousands ofdeposi tore in the Savings Banks. The exports or domestic produce from the port of New York for the last week aggregate $8,154,874 the largest for a like period in many years. ST. PATBRICK'S DAY IN MOBILE. Register. March s0. The anniversary ofSt. Patrick was appro priately celebrated on Sunday last by the sons of Erin in Mobile, in common with the Irish Catholics of the world. The procession was formed about ten o'olock on Government street, the right resting on Hamilton, and con siated of two divisions. The first division was composed of St. Patrick's Benevolent Associa tion and the Catholic Total Abstinence Society, headed by the Fire Department Band. The second Division was composed of St. Patrick's Literary and Reading oom Society, and St Patrick's Booety of Whistler, headed by Gass' Band. After the processiono had been properly formed noder the direction of Grand Marshal Thos Tobin, the following route of march wasee taken, the procession moving from Govern ment street up Hamilton to Dauophin. down Dauphin to Jackson, op Jackson to Beaure gard, up Beauregard to St. Patrick's Chnrch, there to attend Pontifiocal High Mass. On arriving at the church, the large procession Sled in and were seated to liaten to the reli gious exercises of iebsday, wMob were very impresive. The Right Rev. D. Manucy, D D., Bishop of Dulmen and Vicar Apoetolic of Brownsville. Texas, was the celebrant, asist ed by the Rev. Father Serra, S. J., assistant priest; Father Marley, of St. Bridget's, Whis tier, deacon: Father Armstrong, sub-deacon, and Father Keeler, master of ceremonies. At the gospel, Father Shanahan, of Spring Hill College, delivered a panegyrio or St. Patrick. After a brief sketch of the life of the Apostle of Ireland, Father Shanahan proved that the Irish race whom he evangelized were, during the four centuries suoooeeding their conversion to Christianity, distinctly a missionary race, and that they retain these same characteristio in modern tims. Right Rev. John Quinlan, Bishop of Mobile, ofliciated at the ceremonies, attended by Father Kirwan and Father Ming, S. J., of Spring Hill, as deacons of honor. Millard's Mass wee rendered by the bchoir with creditable effect. After divine service the societies reformed on Beauregard street, op posite the church, and thence proceeded up Beauregard to Franklin, up Franklio to Blood good, down Bloodgood to Claiborne, down Claiborne to Beanregard, down Beauregard to Joachim, down Joachim to Government, up Government to Claiborne, up Claiborne to the Hall of St. Patrick's Benevolent Society, where a fine lunoooh was spread for all who desired to partake thereof. When the procession reached the convent on Franklin street, they halted and serenaded the Sisters of St. Joseph. After the societies had partaken of lunoch, they pro ceeded to the Bishop's residence, where they serenaded Father Brown, who responded in fitting terms in a brief sneech. After serena ding the Sisters on Conti street, the societies disbanded, and the celebration of St. Patrick's Day, 1878. was drawn to a close. ST. PATBICK'S DAY IN NATCIIEZ. Condensed from Natchez Democrat. The day was in every respeot lovely and pleasant. At a little after halfpast nine o'clock a. min., the members of the Hibernian Benevolent Association assembled at their hall, and proceeded in a body, with Marshal Fan ning in command, to the Cathedral, there to attend the celebration of High Mass. The Cathedral was crowded, and Mas was celebrat ed by Rev. Father Marty. Rev. Father Finn de livered the sermon, taking for his theme the life and deeds of St. Patrick. Father Finn's discourse was at once logical, eloquent end beautiful. An Irishman himself, he threw his whole soul and spirit into the subject, and kept his audience for over half an hour in the plea sure of following hint as he traced the charac tar of the illnetrions Saint, and the wonderful effect of his teaching and example, upon the Irish race directly, and indirectly npon the world at large. In the evening, at seven o'clook, the Society re-assembled at the hall for the purpose of dis cussing refreshments, and enjoying a "feast of reason and now of soul." President Geo. T. Payne seated the Society and its few gnests, and, taking the ohair, flanked by Very Rev. M. F. Gri goon, and Rev. Fathers Finn and Marty, opened the proceeding in a neat introductory address. Father Grignon was first called on and offered the health and prosperity of the Hibernian As sociation of Nathbez. He was followed by Father Finn, and then came an intermingling of songs and toasts and responses which were given by Meassrs. Paul A. Botto, Jas. W. Lam bert, N. . Judab, Wmin. Lowry, J. Thompson, P. Walbsh, Theo. F. Wensel, W. F. Fanning, J. O'Cavanagh, Lawrence Marron, W. N. Irvin, and various other gentlemen. Between the sentiments the time was pleas antly whiled away with beautiful songs well rendered by Messrs. Fanning, Thompson, Father Finn and Mr. Wise. The very enjoy able oooasion closed with "Anld Lang Syne," in which the whole company joined. The present ofiloers of theAsooiation, which was organized in 1572, are: President, CGeo, T. Payne. Vice-President, A. Tuttle. Recording Secretary, J. A. McKee. Corresponding Secretary, Fred Maher. Treasurer P. Walsh. l Marshal, W?. F. Fanning. ST.

The advantages attending the system of anonymous journalism are great, but they are often abused. For instance, to read in our daily papers that "the Rome corres pondent of the London Times" says so and so, is to be predisposed tojbelieve the state ment which follows, for it is only natural to suppose that the leading journal of Eu rope would take care that its correspondent at the capital of Christendom should be not only an intelligent but a truthful gentle man. But if it were universally known that "the Romo correspondent of the Lon don Times" was the notorious villain An tonio Gallenga, who fooled Mazzini into accepting him as a disciple of the revolu tion, who concocted a conspiracy for the assasbination of Charles Albert, King of Sardinia and father of Victor Emmanuel, claiming for himself the honor of striking the dagger into-the breast of his sovereign, and who then sold out his fellow dupes, took his reward, and went to London where he enlisted in the service of the Times, the credence attached to any state ment he might make would be very small. Happily, the knowledge of the personality of the Rome correspondent of the London Times is becoming general. Taus, we read in the daily Graphic of the 7th inst.-and the daily Graphic is by no means a Catho lic journal-toe following caustic remarks concerning Mr. Gallenga: "The present Rome correspondent of the London Tinme is that estimable gentleman, Mr. Gallenga, who began his career as a diseci ple of Mazzici, and engsgKed in a couspiracy for the assavsinstion ut Ciarlren Albert, then King of Sardinia and fattier of Victor Eiunan nel. When thbe plot was ripe, MAIr. Gallengs betrayed hib fellow-coLtsplirator, received the reward of lil treacuer), and went to London with a special lettar of recommeudation to the Tines. I he ahility of this man as a journalist cannot be qucatiouned; but he often seems to take delight in misleading his own employers and in fooling the English publio. His dis patch of yesterday concerning the new Pope is a case in point. Leo XIII., he tells us, in his replies to addresses, etc, 'avoids all men tion of the Virgin, with the purpose of dis countenancing Mariolatry, which his prede cessor so long encouraged ' Yes-and the Polpe also avoids all mention of the Holy CGhost, with the purpose of discountenancing belief in the dogma of the Trinity ; he does not make any mention of lfell-asd therefore be is a Universalist. Mr. Gallenga has rather overshot his mark thin time in his anxiety to show that the new Pope is at all diterent from the old Pope." There are two animated barometers in Sacramento, Cal., that have proved trust worthy, even where artificial instruments have failed. One of them is a catfish, which is kept in a water trough. No matter how clear the weather may be, this fish always, before a storm, makes it a point to swim about with his head below the water and hie tail above. When the rain begins to fall le goes out of sight until the weather changes. The other is a couple of frogs under tho floor of the police office, which have rever yet been seen by any of the otflicers, but who presage a storm ser eral hours in advance of the barometrical indications, by a series of peculiarly dis cordant croaks. No matter how clear and bright the night, the police cflicers then make it a point to prepare for a storm, and the warning has never proved in vale. iisda~;~'gtilh,_:"dll`IjI~C+ýdýdý. ddý`. i..W.aý3frc;fsfýifiCiT~iýL: A FLEET-FOOTED GENERAL. ROW AN INDIAN BEAT GENERAL BARMT AND SAVED HIMSELF A FLOGGING. st. Louis GlobebDemo.rat. General William 8. Harney, of this city, when a young man, had the reputation of being the swiftest runner in the army, as well as the best Indian fighter. HIe was a strict disciplinarian, but not one of the "stuck-up so common now-a-days. He would often mingle with his men when noet on duty, and laugh and joke with them on terms of familiarity, and went so far at times as to compete with them in the exciting sport of foot-racing. An impres sion prevailed at one time that almost any Indian could outran a white man- but General Harney believed that he could beat any red rascal that wore moccasins, and whenever he met a warrior who boasted of his fleetness of foot, he took great pleasare in giving him a trial, and always came oat ahead. Only once did he fail to reach the winning post before his adversary, and that was by a "foul." The affair ocuarred at Fort Winnebago in the winter of 1883, when Fox river was frosen over and the weather was very cold. An Indian had committed some breach of the rules of the garrison, for which Harney, then a captain, concluded to adminolster a flogging. He always believed in giving every man a fair chance, white or red, and on this occasion hbe conducted the Indian some distance up the river, and giving him a hundred yards the start, told him if he reached a certain point without being overtaken be would escape the flogging. The race was on the ice, which at some places was thinner than at others, on account of the formation of "air-holes." Both men wore moccasins, and both were stripped and belted for the race, Harney swinging a cowhide in his hand, with which he confidently expected to accelerate the movements of the Winne bago on overtaking him. At the word '"go" both started at full speed, the Indian doing his best to save his hide, and the white man anxions to preserve his reputation as a runner. Harney gained rapidly on the warrior, and was getting ready to swing hia rawhide, when the cunning savage made an oblique movement toward a spot where the ice was thin. Being of much lighter weight than his pursuner, he passed over the dangerous spot in safety, but as soon as Barney stepped upon the thin ice it was shivered like glass, and down went the tall captain, sinking into the cold water like a sea lion. Being a good swimmer, a few strokes brought him to the edge of the thick ice, and clambering upon it he made his way to his quarters, spangled with icicles, and as mad as a buffalo bull. He lost his cowhide in the water, but that was a small matter, as the Indian never return ed to the fort while the captain remained there. Captain Harney's foot-race afforded "old Twigge" occasion for many a joke, and it was a long time before be heard the last of it. A century ago a French Marshal issued an order against employing explosive shells, on the ground that these missiles were "not generally used by polite nations. and Frenchmen should fight according to the laws of honor." That was the era of etiquette in war-a day which produced the story of Fontenoy, with its "Gentle men of the Guards, fire first !'" Modern war long since got over its scrnples against the use of explosive shedls, and we do not hear as much now as we heard a dozen years ago of the immorality of explosive bullets for infantry arms. Admiral Lord Dunesany, in a recent lecture on the laws and customs of war, as limiting the use of fireships, explosion vessels, torpedoes, and submarine mines, noted that early in the centnry it was held lawful to kill the crews of fireships, when captured, on the ground that they employed an inhuman device in fighting; but now, he said, sucha aslaughter was never looked on with favor. In the same way, torpedoes sent from one ship against another, and even concealed tor pedoes, exploding by contact or by electri cal communication, are now recognized as legitimate, though Admiral DI)unsay thought that concealed torpedoes must be put in a different category from the others. As an example of an unfar missile, he in stanced hollow iron Inmps filled with dynamite, psinted to look like coal, and shipped on board the enemy's vessels at crg stations. But he was forced to ad mit that tihe rough game of war cannot be played according to the ideas of inter national lawyers, while the failuro of the Brusanis Conference, four years ago, shows the diiliculty of defining what does not con stitute legitimate warfare. It is easy to despise all earthly things, when we reflect that we muast die and leave them all behind us.-St. sTerase.
