Roass, April 20.-At the Easter reception of Jo
Cardinals, Pope Leo dwelt upon the strength bw
sad vitality of the Pontificate, he said the war be
which has been declared against the Papacy
from the earliest times continues with andi
minishbed fieroeness. Trusting in God, we are
ready to carry on the warfare, and to uphold Mi
the rights of the Church. The Roman Pontiff la
oonaluded by expressing the hope that the ag
erring ohildren would finally submit. Ia
April 25 -An encyclical, just issued by the en
Pope, points out that it is wrong for society Ni
to combat the Church and the Roman Pontifi- so
at eseially regarding the latter's olvil re
princpality, which is a guarantoee of its liberty to
and indepeudenee. do
The Pope renews and confirms the protest of oh
Pias Ninth against the ocooupation of this oivil or
prinoipality of the Church. His Holiness is s
eeonfdent that, with the aid of God and the fin
--seal of the pastors, society will finally return 0O
to the homage it owes to the ohurch. The tr
eneylieal is generally moderate and full of at
expressione of affection toward society. al
Tit EAersra qusrtnex.-Through the ef re
forts of Prince Bismarck it appeared early lst
week that there was a very great probability
that Rassia would withdraw her army sad
England herB eet from the neighborhood of u
Constantinople, and that then the proposed
Congress would be held. Bat no sooner was
the prin ple of a simultaneous withdrawal t
admitted than great difficulties as to pratical a
points arcs.. The English wished the ase
stianes to withdraw to Adrianople, which is -
three days' march from Constantinople, but tt
only one day's travel by rail. The Russians
would only consent to withdraw a distanoe
equal to one day's march. Then guarantees N
were demanded that in case of the failure of Is
subsequent negoolations the forces of the two
powers would be allowed to resume their C
original positions without any trouble: Ros- n
siaisspecially interested on this point as she P
is secured that England has the sympathy of
the Turks, and that should Turkey be forced tt
tsrdelde upon an alliance with either party 0
she would certainly turn to England. Mean- b
while the leading journals of Earope seem to 0
entertain very slight hopes of a pesoeful set

tinue their preparations wi bh unabated energy.

Turkish outrages of ,1876, and the whole

The Mussulmans are goaded to de-pair by the
tyranny of their former victims. The country

The latest mail from Ireland brought reports
of this terrible event which has caused a pro- t
l found sensation throoghoutthecivilized world. c
SA correspondent writes from the spot as fol- i
h lows: "The Earl of Leitrim, accomnpanied by
r his clerk or sub-agent and the driver of a post
car, left his lordsebip's residence, Manor
Vaugban, near Milford, County Donegal, for
Milford on a post oar. When some time on the
)0 highway, and when passing the cottage of the
,-wisow Algoe, a respectable Presbyterian lady,
It whom his lordship had evicted, a volley of
e, shots were fired out of, it is said, Crat'. Wood.
e The shots took a fatal effect. The earl and the
clerk and the horse were killed instantly,
-. while the unfortunate driver lingered uaoon
ik scionusly for a few bours."
id The following are more particulars of the
d- outrage. The Earl of Leitrim left on Tuesday
do morning, about half-past eight o'clock, his
to house. Manor Vaughan, near Carregart, en
ies rets for Milford, thence to go to Londoaderry.
He drove on a post car, accompanied by a
ii newly-appointed clerk, named Macker, from
the County Leitrim. The second oar was oo
te oupied by the Earl's valet and a countryman.
When coming near a plantation a few miles
of from Milford, the driver of the first car was
s. shot dead and the Earl and the clerk were
he wounded. The borne in the second car being
ry lame, was a good distance behind, and owing
oe tv the hilly nature of the ground the part on
it were cntoff from view. 'he clerk ran back
for help, but quickly expired, and meanwhile
Od the Earl was shot to the death. A gun-a
fv fowling-pieoe, made by Hollis & Son, London
-and a pistol of somewhat antique pattern,
were found beside his lordship's body, as also
a gua*-stook of rude workmanship considerably
ed shattered. Two men were seen crossing the
at neighboring Bay of Malray in a boat. In the
boat subsequently was found the barrel of a
ee gun. The police have also got a billy cook
tar hat of a superior quality to anything worn by
00, the peasantry.
00, AN nYr-WITNxMs' STORY.
ip At the inquest, Kineaid, the servant of Lord
ad Leitrim, swore that he was on the second oar
B- and w about 250 yards behind, when a seoon
o- volley was fired at Lord Leitrim's oar; he drove
Sup at once, and was engaged n asesiting Mao
.*, ker, the clerk, when two men in front Bred a
Sthird volley at his lordship, who had escaed
ir the first discharge; he then noticed Lord Lei
trim struggle with two men, and two more
ik shots were fired during the struggle, and one
one man gave his lordship a dreadfnul blow wIth a
sad heavy weapon. When we left Manor Vaughan
his there were two outside car; on the first were
we the Earl, John Masker and Charles Buchanan;
sad I had the luggage with me on the second ear;
and a little behind; shortly after leaving we pased
rely two oart on the road comlug in the eams di.
I in- reotion as ourselves. Did not observe ny one
t is on the road after that. The At thing Iheard
od was thb report of a shot in Woodoert Wood.
ae- I was les than 250 yards behind, and ad lost
light of his lordship, owing to a turn in the
oad. I was just ooming in sight of him again
when I heard two shots fired immediately after
.n advance of ns, I then saw Macken and the
Iriver were cif the car. Boohanan was lying g
in the road. Mocker was just getting on his o
feet coming towards us. Loguet, the driver, T
uoald not make my horse go. I got cfi the car
nd ran to meet Macker. He put his arms
arouud me and told me be was shot. Macker
wae then about a hundred yards from the fi -st
sar. Macker then got on the car, and asked B
me to return to Manor Vaughan, as be said we T
would be all murdered. I did not go back. A
Lord Leitrim was at this time in front quar- 0:
reling with two men, and two shots were then 01
ired, and Myoker fell, and I caught him. He
then said, "I am done." He then became weak. T
I brought him un a part of the road, and then R
two more shots were fired, and Lord Leitrim A
then got off the car. I could see his white
bair after I heard the lastashots fired, Isaw a
man taking up a weapon to his lordship
'bere were then two men on the road with E
bim behind the oar. I saw a straggle going
on, and two more shots were fired. I did not T
bear Lord Leitrim say anything. I heard the H
voloes, but did not know what they were say- H
log. I asked Loguet to jump up on the ear
aud come. He said be wonldn't, that any per- T
son who would go there would be murdered. I A
did not go forward for some time. I heard no
more shots. When Lord Leitrim disappeared A
the men also disappeared. It might ue ten
minutes during the fl:ing. When I got up to
his lordship he was partly lying on his side, *
with his head in the water, and was dead. A
Nothing attracted my attention about the men *i
I saw on the road until I saw two men rowing 9
a boat across the water. The two men on the z
road bad grey coats, the men in the boat wore
dark coats. I lifted Lord Leitrim's body on c
our own ear, his own horse bad gone on as far
as Oratha Wood. When I got up, the boy
McBride was sitting on the car, and going to
Milford. I met two policemen, and told them
of it. Lord Leitrim carried arms, but he did
not use them at all. I saw two men go in a
boat, but could not identify them.
Letterkenny, April 4th - The adjourned in
quest was resumed to day before Coroner Ram
soy, and in the presence of County Inspector
Casrr, Sub-Inspeutors Baily, Croghand and Mo
uire, and a number of solictors who appear.
ed on behalf of next of kin of Lord Leitrim
and Macker and r nobanau.
Dr. Orborne and D. Dunlop deposed,-We
have examined and made a post mortem exami
nation of the body of William Sidney, Earl of
Leitrim, and found as follows-A punctured
wound on the back ab.,ut two inches from the
vertrebtl column opposite the first dorsal ver
treb se, on the left side, and about nine others
on the back, oud about thirteen others on the
inner part of the left arm. One in the armpit;
two or three lacerated wounds on the left ear,
and a wound on the bridge of the nose. We
extracted several pellets of lead, some as large
as a pea, and some the size of shot, from the
back and arm. The inner part of the left arm
was shattered. There was hemorrhage from
the left ear. The wounds appeared to be
caused, for the moseet part, by gunshots. The
chief disoharge had taken effect in the lower
part of the 1Ift arm, and portions of the coats
were carried into the wounds. Besides several
slight abrasior sa un the left side of the face and
head, there was one tratsverse wound of the
scalp on the vertex three inches in length,
with a fracture of the skull visible through it.
On removing the skull cap this fracture could
be traced, extending from the bottom of the
middle forse of the base of the skull, across the
top of the skull, and into the inner angle of
the corresponding fores upon the left side, al
most completing a oiroular transverse j ncture
of the skull about the top of the head. A
second fracture branched off from the other,
running posteriorly to it, which at last turned
and joined the first about an inch above the
petrons bone. Just below the scalp wound
there was a curved crask about an inch long ;
there were two short fractures through the
synamons portion of the left temporal bone.
There was much effusion of blood into the soft
tissues in front of the left ear, also under the
scalp near the temples. The same gentlemsn
also deposed that heexamined Bocbanan'sbody
and found six pellet wounds on the front of the
right arm, twenty-three on front and side of the
right breast, one on the left breast, three on
the back and right side of the chest. They ex
amined the body of John Masker, and found
no external marks on him, except one small
punotured wound about an inch above and be
hind the left ear, in which there was a grain of
shot. On opening the skull we found great
effusion of blood. We believe that wee the
I oanse of death.
The jury then found-The deoeased Earl of
SLeitrim and Charles Bouhanan came by their
s deaths from gunshot wounds infleted by saome
persons unknown to jurors ; and we find that
She Earl of Leitrim's death was hastened by
I blows Inflicted by some heavy weapon, and
Sboth oame by their deaths in the townland oi
s Wood Crtloe on ld of April, 1978' and we find
s that John Meeker died on the road at Cratloe,
same day, of effsion on the brain, probably
au oesed by great excitement, and from a wound
a behind the left ear.
A; private magisterial inquiry was held, when
the following five prisoners, who have been
arrested on suspicion, were remitted to Lifford
I Jail pending further inquiries: - Charles
SM'Taggart, Cratloe; Mansfeld Fonabolt, As
I. thbourangan, and Thomas Morennan, and
a another whose name is not pablsed. The in
d quiry was adjoourned for eight days.

y Editor Cathol:e Colombian :
Ie There are many people who think that too
1t moch money is spent by Catholics on the
n Church, Priests' salaries, and the like. Why
. cannot the seats in the Church be free as they
d are in Europe f Why should we have to pay
11 for worshipping God IIt seems to me that it
pew rents and collections wore abolished, we
oould all prey with more devotion at the public
at services of the Church. The ciroulation of the
e* collection box, and the rattle of pieces to it, Is
a very great cause of distraction. Our Lord
Ir drove the money changers out of the Temple.
Does not our system seem like bringing them
Sback agal I)avour.
SThe Colesass's reply is as follows :
d It is always pleasanter to have people usg
of geet better plane, than to oad fault. It is
ad neither possible nor desirable to have pub
es, Ito worship without paying for It. It is not
ly possible, beoause after your Church is boilt
ad and paid for, repairs, labor in cleaning and
keeping in order, vestments, lights, the sob
en sistence of those who serve the altar, all
n require outlay. Priests do not require very
ird Ige salaries; but they need besides "board
leo ena lothes," what will enable them to help
oa tbe poor, and show hospitality. It Is not
ad desirable to have an inexpenaive worsbip
in- The devotion which stops with aying "Lor
Lord," and never does anything subostntial
pre fo the Lord, is pestleetat hypoorly.
People who seet every eset they give the
Church, as so muooh wasted in generosity, who
can dress well, live well, and keep up show,
but get smothered at the quarterly pew rent,
and groan at the sight of the collection plate
do not understand what it means to be Chris
tian. They are not living in God's grace and 5
are complacently going forward to hoar the
words "L'epsrt from me." The devotion which
is aggrieved at the sight of the plate, or sub.
scription list is hardly skin peep. If our corres
pondent has any way to suggest by which wor
ship can be supported, and worshippers save w
their souls without cooperating with their ti
means, we shall be glad to have him explain it k
to us. In Europe during the ages of faith yi
people were glad to use their means in build- g
lug churohes, buying vestments, employing a
sculptors and painters, founding parish and a
cathedral livings, and doubtless by this time, Io
they think better of themselves for having a
done so. But it is better for the living genera
tlon not to hunger after cheap devotion, for ti
each member of the oongregation to hbold him- el
self personally bound from week to week to take aI
his part in paying for candles, altar breads, i
and the rest of the things required fr the de- i
oeuny of the Bouse of God. a

The Unelaimed Divideade at the Bank of

which £851,739 Os. 9., was advanced by the s
Bank to the Government. Where, it le asked,
are the persons who are entitled to so large a
sum of monesyt And it is added that it would
be certainly curious to trace out each osee In- ,
dlvidually. What, the Financier suggests, if
claimants die suddenly, or die Intestate, or diQ
leaving no known kith or kin behind them I
What if a whole family perish through a
wreck, or railway collision, or sudden and eta -
veore mortality, or other catastrophe t Dwell
ing for a few moments upon such reflections as
these, one ceases to be surprised at fioding that
the amount of unclaimed dividends in the Bank
of England. now approobhes a cool million 1
sterling. Unclaimed dividends, unclaimed
deposits, unclaimed balancesof all kinds, must,
we see, in the course of years, still more so in
that of centuries, mount up to very respect
able sums indeed. And sunobh chanoe gains as
these are doubtless supplemented to no mean
tune in the aggregate by those sccrning to is
suing banks through the loss, destrootion, or
disappearance of bank notes for which they
have received good money or due "considera
tion," but which, by no physical possibility,
can ever again reappear at their counters.
There are traditions that in some old establish
ed banks there exists to this day mouldy old
boxes of gold and silver plate deposited for 1
safe custody fifties or hundreds of years ago,
and the owners of which, never having turned
up, are hardly likely to do so now. Nay, it is
equally within the realms of belief that un
claimed strong-boxes in bankers' strong rooms
may contain deposits campared with which coin
r and silver plate pale in value. The Bank cel
lars in these respects resemble somewhat, in
their suggestiveness of reclaimable wealth, the
"ooze and bottom of the deep, with sounken
i wreck and sumless treasury," sang of by hak
N. Y. Cathollo Review.
