He has beeu staying with the Rev. S. Wayte, Preei dent of Trinity College, of wbloh hooiety Dr. Newman was formerly a seholar, and has te cently been elected an honorary fellow, Dr. Newman met a number of old friends at dinner at the President's lodgings, and on the follow ing day be paid a long visit to Dr. Posey at Christ Churo. Ho also spent a considerable time at Keble College. In the evening Dr. Newman dined in Trinity College Hall, at the high table, in academioal drees, and the schol are were invited to meet him afterward. Among the Jewels presented by Lord Rose berry to his intended wife, Miss Rothschild, was the largeet eappbire brought to England some time aego in its rough state, and for a long time remained unealable, asee the dealers faenoled they saw in it a flSaw. At length one, more oourageous than the others, purehased it for $4.000, taking all the risk. On being sent to the polishbers, it wase found that the defect was only skin deep. Lord Roseberry paid $10,000 for it, precisely the usme price as the Duke of Westipinster paid some years ago for the-argeet eown turquoise.

The New York Star states that a piece of property in Chicago, a few years ago worth $120,000, would noT now bring $12000. The cause of the great decline in property to a considerable extent, it appears, is due to the high cost of rebuilding the city after the great Are. A prominent Chicagoan, from whom the Btar derives its information, to reported to have said that the boases were rebuilt with borrowed Eastern eepital; the brick ost $15 per 1000 and laborers received $4 per day. Now brick are down to $7 per 1000, and laborers can be had at almost anay price; consequently there is no building in Chicago, which was re built after the fire, which is now worth more than one-third or one-half of its original cost, not counting the interest paid on the mort gage, which in a great many cases amounted to more tLan the preasen value. The 0 ivernor of New Mexico is at logser heads with the Legislature of that an.Amerl can Territory. Religious p,.rjndioes seem to be at the bottom of the dilllculty. the law making body being Catholic, and the Governor something e!se, it is not very clear what. The Assembly not long ag, pssued an act incorpor ating the Soclety of ' e J. suit Fathers of New Mexico. The olj3et of the orporatiun was ttated to be the educationl of youth in all branches of letters, arts and sciences. The aoiety was authorired to hold real and plr onaol property exempt from taxation, and it was provided that it might make by-laws and roles for its governmant, not in confltct with the Federal Corstitetion and laws, nor with the laws of the Territory. The Attorney. General of New Mexioo gave an opinion that the act wee in violation of section 189 of the Revised Statutes, whioh prohibits the Legi-la tie Assemolles of the Territories from grant ing private charters or pecial privileges. The Governor thereupon vetoed the bill, and the Asembly passed it over hie veto. Now the dispute is carried to Washington, and the Gov ernor advises Congress to annul the act of the New Mexico Legislature. The Princess Metternich, who played sueh a conspicuooo part in the Paris ofbthe second lmpire, as the wife of the Austrian Ambasse der and the intimate friend of the Empress Eugenie, has just lost her father and is about to part with one of her daughters in marriage. The princess was a neioe of her husband, her father having married a daughter of the faI mooe Austrian diplomatist by iis first wife. Her father was an eccentrio an remarkable person.

HORRIBLE I'ERSECUTIONS IN PIAST YEARI. The following Is a synopsis of a sermon lately delivered by the Bishop of Balford: SIZE AND CONSTITUTITTON OF R USIA, First of all, Rossia was an enormous empire; its power and extent of territory was greater than people generally supposed. As to its extent of territory, it was more than twice the extent of the British Empire; as to population it was mid to be 85.000, 0003 as to resources, though bankruptcy might be spoken of as a possibility, still its resoprces in mineral wealth were enor moasl and as to power, ailitary force sad streglb, the returns shewd to us that withil) two or three years 1,000,000 men could be put under arms. Therefore, we bad to do with a power that was gigantleo and colossal, which, if unascroplously used, might sot only plunge Europe into war, bat might subject a great portion of Europe to practical lose of liberty-to slavery. Russia was composed of two raeees-the Tartars and the 4lavs. The Slave were eoaverted by mslesiosarie placed and sent by the Holy see many centuries ago, and the Christian religion 1 practised, believed, and professed in Rosu sia was for centuries in perfect union with e the Holy See; and when it fell away into schism from the See of Rome, it retained all the Catholic doctrines save and except t only two or three. Two hundred years ago, after Russia had been for some time in to the authority of a Patriarch, Peter the t Great thought to gather in the reins of I spiritual power, and not only to n hkeo himself the spiritual but also the temporal u head of all the Russians, and his aim was r to subject to himself, to his own authority, t the Greek Church, and every other form of c religion, so that be should be strengthened e by unity in matters of religion, concen- t trating that unity in himself. c PARTITION OF POLAND. The troubles of the Catholics in RuIsala began in the lsnet century, when the power I of Russia developed, and when it began to t concentrate its intentions of subjugating c every kind of religion to the Imperial s power, and Poland, a great kingdom upon a the west border of Russia, was partitioned a off at the end of last century. Poland at a that time was a great Catholic power, . numbering some 16,000,000 inhabitants, of a whom 13,000,000 were Roman Catholics. I, It had shown its power and had rendered t grest-rervices to the Church and to Chris- f tendom by putting back the hordes of Islam t before its power was finally broken. Now, a this great Catholio kingdom Russia saw f might one day be a hindrance to the de- a velopment of her greatness, and the Em- p press Catharine, continuing her system of c intrigue, encroachment, aggrandisement, r and conquest, employed a number of emis- r saries to start up an insurrection, to foster p discontent and revolt and change, in order u to disintegrate the Catholio kingdom. 8be a persuaded the King of Prussia to take part ' of Poland, and also the Empress of Austria e -much against her will and conscience- - to be a party to the partitioning of Poland, g and to take to herself the southernmost part of that kingdom. And then, In order that the Catholics of that kingdom might d feel assured that Russia would provide for d the integrity of their Faitb, and fall and r perfect liberty of religious practice, a treaty a was drawn up at Grodno on the 18th of a July, 1793, the 8:h article of which declared F that her Majesty the Empress of all the ( Rusaiss promised in an irrevocable manner t for herself, heirs, and successors, to main- , tain in perpetuity to the Roman Catholics r thir fith and ri-ightfs and the undiistnrhed exorcise of their religions discipline. THE TREATY IS BROREX e Scarcely was the ink dry which signed the treaty than the Ruosian Government exhibittd itself in its true colors in Poland. A massacre took place, and accorling to Russian authorities alone, in that In sacrea 50,0010 Poles were butchered and put to death. Such was the hatred entertained by the Government of Ruosia of the Catho lic religion, that within thbee years of the signing of the treaty, by means of bribery, deceit, and violence, no less than 7,000,000 of Catholics were forced into the national religion of the empire of Russia. All kinds of means were made use of to achieve this conversion-such as taking out eyes, cut ting off hands, slitting noses, breaking I teeth, confiscating property, imprisonment and exile. Instructions were then given to the Cossacks in Poland in such terms as these:-"They were to out to pieces, with God's help, all Poles and Jews, the enemies of our religion, so that their name and memory might be blotted out," and in one town (Warsaw) a gibbet was erected, on which were hung a noble, a priest, a Jew, and a dog, with the inscription, "All alike." Sixteen thousand Cathohlics were u t to death in the town of Human alone. ow, in order thit his bearers might under stand the designs of Rusla, in the begin ning of this century, and we had no reason to suppose that there had been any change is her policy since, he would give them a brief extract of a conference held at Tilsit between the Emperor Alexander, on the one hand, and Napoleon I, on the other. AN AUDACIOUS PROPOSAL. This conference took place in the year 1807, and lasted twenty days; two points were discussed, so we were told by history, and it was proposed by these two deepots to practically divide the world between themselves. Russia was to extend her oorquests throughoot Turkey and the wbole of the East, and Napoleon was to extend his dominions throughout the West and North. Alexander put forward the view that the spiritual power ought to be in the hands of him who wielded the sword, so that the sword and spiritual power might go together and one aid the other; and he advised Napoleon to make hlmself Pope of the Weast jaust as he (the Emperor Alexander) was practically looked upon and deolared himself to be the Pope of the East. Those were thedesigns which these two despots made known to each other; they were facts which had been put to paper, and we had them as historical evi Sdence of the polioy of Russia. noanxasran PBsxcUIlo. In 1830 another persecution took place in SPoland under Niohbolas, and every kind of . Iaffering was inflicted upon the Catholics. a They were whipped, put in prison, starved, exiled; they had all their lands and prop t erty oonfiscaoted ; and by all this kind of e persecution another number of nearly e 3,000600 people were driven, nominally at Sany rsbe, into the Russian Church. And in thesmdays we had seen a third terrible perseauton began in Poland, namely, 1853, which was not suppressed yet, though it was at its height between 1863 and 1866 Daring thesu three years, about 250,000 Catholics were dispersed as exiles from Russia to Siberia. All kinds of physical force were made use of to carry out the in teotions o( RBousl and to destroy the Qthoolic religion prolbssed by the Emper or's Cathollc subjects. And lest we might be inelined to think that the polley of the present Emperor differed from that of his predecessor Nicholas, bhe (the bishop) would briefly read them an extreat which he had made from a letter addressed by the present Emperor, dated 25th of March, 1864. The authenticity of the letter was vouched for by the Secretary of State of the Pope. That letter "rejoeiced at the celebration of the 25th annlversary of the day on whioh the Russian Church saw the return of her children to her.fold, led back to her by the way of gentle and peaceful conviction (this 'peaceful conviction said the hbishop was the terrible persecution of those 3,000,000 Catholies to whom he had alluded j, and he (the Emperor) thanked God for the triumph of unity snad the Join ing of the Greek Church and the two nationalities, and hoped the priests would always fight for the unity of religion in Russia." There seemed to be, from those documents, no doubt as to what were the designs entertained by the powerful despot some 15 years ago, and we had no reason to believe that they were relinquished up to the present time. A cUArr SCHnEME. Id the time of Emperor Nicholas it was thought that, if the prelates of the Catho ic Cnurch could be corrupted, it would be io easy mode of bringing over the whole if the Catholic population to the Russian religion. In order to effect this, a young man named Simimko was taken out of one of the seminaries ; he was astute and un scropulous, and great rewards were offered to him by the Government if be would only become their tool. This unfortunate man yielded to the temptation and the Russian Government created a diocese for him, and representations were made to Rome to have him made bishop. The Sovereign Pontiff, deceived as to his true Iharacter and designs, created him bishop, and no sooner was he elevated to this dig nity, than he threw off the mask, and at ncee set to work in the interest of the Rus tian Government. He putforth reasons to he clergy to induce them to conform, but inding that he succeeded but little, he ensed a formal circular which he said :bhey had to sign under penalty, and coo 'orm to the Russian schism. Simiasko bhinking that if the clergy could he got ever, the whole flock would follow, went 'rom church to church, from monastery to monastery, and, guarded by a body of police, enforced the signatures of the lcergy. The schools belonging to all the eligions orders were suppressed, and the religious orders could not receive new postulants. In Brodno, the number of jlergy brought together to sign the docu ment was 2,000 priests and 348 monks. rhreata and inducements were alternately imployed to make them sign this doca nent; but oat of the 2,349 assembled to. gether, 937 of them preferred to die of tanger, of hard work, and of cold; 108 were sent to Siberia, they, too, preferring leath to schism. The remainder were in naced by family reasons-by seeing their relations, their sisters, brothers, fathers and mothers taken away irom them, their prop srty confiscated, their being reduced to poverty and placed under the ban of the lovernment-it must, he said, be admitted that a large number did apostatise-if not willingly, at least for the considerations oaued. They yielded to the temptation, au4. atnwardly sadnfornid Wnne gnu w men in convents, were subjected to the fame persecution ; and in one place a number of these females were taken to the water aide, and placed tu sacks tied about their necks. They were put in the half frozen water until they should call out and declare that thuey conformed to the schism. Numbers died or these horrible tormeute; and this mode of torture was after a time desisted from on account of the horror it created in the mind of thle Jews, who pro tested that womer should not be subjected to such torture as this. Men wore forced into the churches and the Rtssian clergy anointed their heads with holy oils, and insisted that they should conform to the Russian schism. Not only did they suffer this indignity, but so!diers were constant ly brought into the churches, and with the tips of their swords they forced open the teeth of these men, in order that the priests might place the communion in their mouths. Women were constantly stripped and publicly flogged, until the Jews again, and the sense of humanity itself, protested, and said such horrible scandals should not be ecdured. FROM SIRE TO SON. After this, a ukase was issued ordering the whole population to conform to the Russian Government's way of thinking. This was in the reign of Nicholas. But at the present time, during the last three or four or five years the great Catholic dio cese of Chelm, which, as the only Greek Catholic diocese in Russian Poland, had been subjected to persecution. The Polish religion was made up of two Catholic rites, one which had its services, as everywhere else, in the Latin tongue, and the other in the ancient Greek or Ruthenian, which had always been recognized by the iHoly See, was of great antiquity, and was prac tised by a very large population of Lith. uania and Poland. In 1841 this diocese of Chelm as mentioned in the Treaty of Vienna and was respected in consequence; but in 1872 the present Emperor, tninking that the time bad come for the Ruthenians to submit, desired that they should be re· formed, and the plan of the Government, in the first instance, was, as they said, tc purge not to destroy the religionsvite ol those innovations, which had crept it during past generations. They forbade the use of the monstrance for the Blessed Sacra meat, statues of saainta, the use of the organ and the bells in the sanctuary. The peopli were called upon to deasist from the use o these, and the Government said the would supply, instead of the statues, othe paintings which were on plates of metal according to the achismatical oeustom o that country. They sent Cossacks ani soldiers and police to pull down the altar. and carry away the plunder; and th streets, according to report, pwere litters with organ pipes which had been take out of the churches. All this was done b the present Emperor, under the pretence c porging the Ruthenian or Catholic Gree riteof the Church. A great number 0 1 these churches were closed and many other were given over to the schismatic clerg; Swho heard confesslons and said Masses i thom. aut tthe people would not submit to this, and absmolutely refused to conftom and in many places they defended their cbihches armed with shovels and axes and anything else they could lay their hands upon. They barricaded themselves behind the church doors, against poliek and sold iers, and on one oeosion they so held out for several days, and a regiment of soldiers was sent against them, The women held up their children in their arms, and aal4 they would die and see their children perish with them rather than give up the faith of their forefathers. This was what had taken place in the diocese of Chelm, and was well known to the British Govern ment. For Colonel Mansleld writing on January 29th, 1875, gave a long secount of the persecution, and said that 52,000 Unlat Greeks had been received into the national church of Russia. The persecution, he continued, had existed for several years, but during the last twelve months it had taken a more exasperated form. The Bishop proceeded tel read from Colonel Mansfield's report of the saffering the Greek Catholics had been put to, and of the stubbornness with which the people clung to their faith, in spite of torments, deportation, and death. Another case was that in which 250,000 people had passed over to the national church; and again Colonel Mansgeld-England's accredited authority-spoke of the sufferings they had undergone. PAPAL SYMPATHY Such, then, was the persecution which had harassed the mind and soul of Pins IX. during h-w our o li ,g tOt ours rtsOtt ue and to show how active the Sovereign Pontiff was in his endeavors to mitigate their sufferings, he (the Bishop) might mention that he had In his possession no less than 39 documents or letters from the Vatican to the Russian Government on this subject, daring the first 20 years of the Pontificate of Plus IX. His success was little, but he discharged his great duty, as far as he could, as a friend to liberty, humanity, and true religion. That perse cution was still continuing, and, to show what kind of a despot the Catholics of Rus sala and the Governments of Europe had now to deal with, he would give them a brief account of what took place in Rome in the course of last summer. During last year, on the occasion of the Pontifical Ja bilee, there was a pilgrimage to Rome, and, amongst others, the Poles formed a pil grimage, and they were to be received on a certain day by the Holy Father. The Holy Father had mentioced to his Secre tary of State that this would be a good opportunity of expressing publicly his con demnation of the persecution which the Ruosian Goverument was continuing to in flict upon the Catholics. The Secretary of State reminded the Holy Father that there was a Russian Ambassador in Rome Prince Ourouboff-and that be should be told that the Pope was gonlog to deliver his opinion on the subject. He mentioned it to the Prince, accordingly, and he begged the Secretary of State not to denounce his master's Government in the face of nErope, but that, if the Pope had grievances to state, he should do it direct to the Russian Government, by the ordinary channel of diplomacy. Cardinal Simeoni prevailed on his Holiness to adopt this course, and a memorandum of grievances was drawn out and sent to Prince Ouronhotl. It was usual when a document was sent from on Gov ernment to another, and even from one gentleman to another, to acknowledge the receipt of such document. A fortnight, however, passed, and, though both were in Rome, Cardinal Simeoni received no acknowledgment, and he communicated with the Prince, who replied thus t "My Government is not accustomed to receive censure from anyone, and I hand this memorandum back to you, and take upon myself the responsibility so to do." Thie was the DISCOURTESY AND DOXEtT practiced by the Russian Government, and it was only one sample of the aiplomatio chicanery which characterised the conduct of that Government in all ages, and was being experienced by the English Govern ment at th'e present hour, as It had been by the Catholic Church aid the Sovereign Pontiff during the last 10.a year. The Sovereign Pontiff bad frequent complaints to make respecting the Czar's Catholic sub jects, and to the horrible butcheries to which they were put ; and, as if to mollify them, concordate bad been received from the Russian Government which simply amounted to nothing.
