A COMPLETE REVgBAL OF THI OLD MODE OF LIFE AT TIlE VATICAN. Anne Brewster, the regular correspond ent of the N. Y. World in Rome, sends bhat paper the following letter which we give without further comment than to re mark that we have found her letters to be, generally, u reliable as they are interest hig. Some of the statements contained in thia letter appear to us rather improbable, but we leave the reader to judge for him erel, merely republishing it as giving facts and opinions, concerning affairs in Rome, from a nonCatholic point of view : Boss., Ilaly, April 3.--Yaeterday I was lreaent at one of the oldin'ary papal audiences, and was forcibly struck with the change that was visible everywhere in the Vatican. There is more bustle, more going and coming and les ceremony. Common people stopped and talked in loud voices tothe soldiers. There were work people standing about, with dust pans and brushes, doing the work at mid-day that should have been done early In the morning. The great doors on the fine stairway lead Ing up to the Court of St. Damaso, which ed to be closed, were ajar; a serving man stood in one, not in very nice drese either ; he gazed idly at the crowd, had his hands in his pockets, talked loudly to some passer-by whom he knew, and, worse, ldored his throat and spat on the hand. some marble steps over which were sweep lag the rich velvet and faille trains of the eadies! At the entrance of the Court of St. Damaso, instead of the quiet Swism Guards, there was a large, pompous fellow In a sort of policeman's dress who directed the people where to go in a loud voice. The court-yard was filled with carriages ; celesilatlcs passed hither and thither ; a bishop entered, with a large suite of per. sons attending him ; he was saluted re epsetfully, but some of his suite stopped, talked familiarly with two or three idlers, sad laughed audibly. Altogether there wer a modern laiuea alter reigning that seemed qu~e out of keeping. Pins IX. was what may be called in eommon domestic language a capital house keeper. There was a decorous discipline, as order, system and cleanliness visible daring his time that was very agreeable. You never heard a loud voice on those great stairways and lofty passages. You rarely saw work-people about at mid-day. Tb. streams of people that poured up and down, in and out, moved quietly and re apectfurly. Preatees who met each other bowed silently with lofty reverence and 'ent on their epanrate ways. There were Swihr Guards at evely entrance, and num ors of employees, in suitaeble costumes, who, if supercilious were silent, and krlet their places. IBut all thrat sihow and state seeded more molney than Leo XIII. is willing to spend. The piesent service at the Vatican cotsi much lees ; wages are cut down and there are fewer persons to do the work. This may account for the absence ef respect-for the insubordina lion, indeed--which I noticed. The audiences ot Pius IX, used to be bald with a great deal of state. The Pope entered with a court of cardinals, Mgr. Partecipante, prelates and Noble Guards. Be mounted the throne, made a short ad dres in fluent French with an excellent aeenta, or in rich, sonorous Italian, and eeded with the benediction. But there is oe such elegant royal ceremony now. There were about two hundred and fifty ef o yesterday. We were placed In one ae the loggi on the second floor, the one feing the east, the decorations of which were made in the time of Gregory XIII. 3 1noncampagn|, 1572 1585) and Urban VIII. (Barberinl. 16231644) by those artists called the Mannerists, Tempesta Germoneta, etc., Shields, with the winged dragon, the myth of Try ptolemus, the reat of Gregory XIII. and BarberinI bees are over the doors. We were seated on benches that were placed on either side of the oyggia, and had to wait from mid-day until 1 o'clock. At last Ms Holiness came, but without any court or Noble Guards-only one t1cer and two Monsignori Partecipanti were with him. They walked slowly along one side of tile logian end returnetd iy tie tlh-r, Riiving taRie partiy special sttrq.ttlrll )lay ,' o t ,rs" Afr e'ode drsse d wrlu allolt to kat-- ; te - ltgrhr atteptle tot klrtl tihe enol I id, b h tl-dled trint-ili t re stittI trd One tnI i-ie th e i tbe okctirn tho atimdt parte ti, eof vc, t helnr, rned read fl.r unit( e alou(d, i 0l. it'rlllo8 with droll prorlnt eiatiuis. flitn l'ep! gve his shand to kiss and sliokr a fr-w wordrl to ericll one.

Thi-ern was no elthlsieasnl as there nsed to be sat tIle audiences of Pines I. Indeed, aeil expresions of emotion were discouraged. Tire Pope spoke in a ]ow tone of voice when he had anything to say to a person. After he had patsed down anti up tile logio he stood at the and, by the door entering tile Swiss Guards' Bali, and gave the benediction in a mod onrate tone oeof voice, then turned and left U Uee Holiness is averse to making peethee; b; he is tnot so vroluble as Plas IX. He also dislikes having addressee Sread to him, and seems to regard audiences an necessary evils of his iositeioun. `Paphl apartment on the et-crrntl dlrin, thie one forrierly occupied by l'rur IX. U-t has been very exactt about the arranigernent efit; the btd that was first prepared for hin did not please him and he oiedered it tri ie ehanged. Wood floors have been put down on the bedroo ace -,a-J- ,. - cordance with his wishes. This is the first time a wood floor has been seen at the Vatican, and some of the old inhabitants of the palace regard it as a streage lnno vation.- The Pope dosires that all pomp and ceremony shall be observed in relig ious matters; for instance, the Consistory was held with the same forms used before 1870. But be wishes to live as a private individual. He and his Camerlengo, Car dinal di Pietro, are alike in this, and each desires to have the success of religion rather than politics. When you read Car dinal di Pietro's reply to the Pope's alloca tion you see this spirit pervading it: the great work for the Church is to make Christians; that is the key-note. Both the allocuton and pastoral letter annonuc lug the establishment of the Catholic Ger archia in Scotland are temperate discourses; but for all that, you see plainly in the firm passage alluding to the loss of the temporal power that the present Pope stands just where the preceding one did. Because he is silent and prudent, gives no reason for any to encourage the hope that be accepts the present state of Italy as us fail accampli. It is not certain that His Holiness will go to Castel Gondolfo this summer, but It is certain that he will leave the Vatican and Rome during the hot months. A good deal of curiosity is felt as to whither he is going, and a good deal of speculation is indulged in, for tif the Pope should take it into his head to leave Italy bhe might not return, and that would complicate matters most unopleasantly. An entertainment was given on Sunday evening by the Spanish Ambassador de Cardenas, the one who Is near the Holy See. It is the first grand official reception of the Vatican Court that has occurred since the winter of 1869. The party was given In honor of King Alphooso's wedding, and was to have taken place the 14th of February, but was put off to the 31st of March. It was a very splendid affair. The Princess del Drago, the Spanish King's aunt, received the guests. This lady is the daughter of Qieen Christina of Spain and Munoz, her morganatic husband, the Duke di Rianzares. The Princess del Drago was dressed superbly, and was dazzling with jewels. The Princess Massurio, sis ter to the Count de Chambord, was there, and the Princesses Orsini, Altieri, Rospig liosi-in short, all the grande dames of the Papal Court, who have not enjoyed such a gaiety for eight long years. And what made the affair more significant was that there were Cardinals present in grande tenue, and several Monsignori and prelates with crosses and decorations. Not only Cardinal Howard swept his scarlet train through the salons, but a much more important personage-the Cardinal Secretary of State Franchl. The Cardinals were received with all the old-time splendor, at the door of the palace, with torches blazing. This reception and the presence of Cardinal Franchi at it is regarded as a conciliatory sign. It isthe first time since 1870 that a Cardinal Secretary of State has gone out into society officially. How strange it will be to have two courts reigning in Rome, what a brilliant place it will make of the old city. But before next winter who knows what changes may not take place t The Pope may be far away from Rome, all Europe in a blaze, and Italy in the middle of the strife. GREAT DISTBESS IN CALIFORNIA AND COMlMUNISTIC I UMBLINGS. Ean Fraecisoo Monitor. For some time back there has been a se - rions feeling of insecurity among the people of this city. We are in a period of general depresslon, stagnation of business and dearth of employment, produced in a great measure by the same causes which affect the rest of the United States. This has bet n accompanied here by a season of unosual drought and a great influx of Chinese labor. This general depression has been aggravated also by the conduct of self -appointed demagogues, who claimed to show the people how all these evils could be at once removed, and wmalth and prosperity le within the reach of all. The means were communistic and revolution ary. Organizations of armed men openly expressed their determination to carry out their programme by force, if necessary, in defiance of the constitutional authority of the United States and the State of Califor nia. To oppose these, it was said that other organisations were secretly formed which, under whatever name, were to be but a repetition of the famous Vigilance Committee. Now, we have no absolute certainty that these statements are facts, but every one knows that such is the com mon belief, and any overt act, on the part of either side, would have been followed by scenes which we shudder to contem plate. It was therefore the duty of the Archbishop to warn his flock from having anything to do with such organizations, for by the very fact of belonging to such they would incur the sentence of excommuni cation from the Church, pronounced by her Sovereign Pontiffs against all such secret and illegal societies, and we believe that by his thus solemnly warning his people, he has merited the gratitude of all right minded persons in the city and State. 11e also admonishee and even requires them to stay away from all such seditionus, auti-social and anti christian meetings. III a mlatter of such gravity, all Catholca are bound to obey himi under pain of sin, accordi jg to thle injjunctions of thoe Holy Scripture, "'oey your prela'tes anrid be si. , ' ct to thiul, knowi g toy have to give nii acciultt of your Soule." If by the law ,of C;oil <'hlrll't are obliged to obey their pate"tIs, ui a:l lawful thlings, so also are we obliged t, Itztidetr thatt obedience to those inveet, d with np!ritual authority-"'HI that will znt hear the Church is to be ac counted as a heathen." This prohibition was also necessary, as the greater number who attended those meetings went through mere curiosity, but if not warned of the danger might perish therein. Megy, the French commu nist, boasted in New York of the organiza tion they had in San Francisco, and ex pressed the hope that ere long the streets of this city would run red with blood. Most assuredly those who follow suech leaders will in the end be shot down in the streets, pine in dungeons, or perish on the scatfld :iko the Communists of Paris or the Mlolly Maguirea of Pennsylvania tlteen of whom have been already hanged, and Hleater, one of the last three that were rxecutetid, as tile hangman's nooase .was Alipped rtound hisi neck, said to the attend :g prit.st, "Ah, Father, if Ii had taken my paaitor's advice, I would not be here to day." As to the idea of the Archbiabop and clergy of the Catholic Church being in b.l.... 1 OLi. lz..-- - .I Mo many Iawful mode of agitation an organisation against this great evil, and the ameliora tion of the condition of the working classes, it is too silly to need refutation. NA TIONAL DB UNEKNES&. London Tablet. Once fix, by habitual repetition, a stig ma, whether on a nation or an individa al, and, however unmerited, it may take ages to remove the calumny, Numerous are the criminal and had habits imputed to the Irish, and confidently believed by those ignorant of their true character or prejudiced against them. Amongst their other failings, the Irish are reputed to be steeped lower in the degrading vice of drunkenness than their fellow subjects in England and Scotland, which is frequently set forth as one of the causes of the greater poverty, discontent and crime of that country, and of its relative inferiority in industrial and material progress. A Par liamentary Return just issued affords the latest refutation to this calumny. There are but two main modes by which a fair opinion can be formed as to the relative use or abuse of intoxicating drinks by two or more countries--namely, by the amount of those drinks entered for home consumption, and by the number of con victions for drunkenness. But, even with reliable returns, under both heads, there are important modifying circumstances that most accompany them; in order to draw just conclusions. Convictions for drunkenness woold appear to be conclusive as a means of determining relative guilt; yet, nothing could be more misleading, as may be readily shown. In the first place there is a Police Force of 12.081 men scat tered in fixed barracks over Ireland, and who attend all fairs, markets, and popular gatherings; while in Scotland the force amounts to only 3,356 men, mainly sta tioned in cities and towns; and only 29,689 policemen in England and Wales. The Police Force in proportion to popula tion, is far larger and much more efficient in Ireland than in England or Scotland, hence the higher probability of the detec tion of drunkards. But another element powerfully stimulates the vigilance of the police, with whom for some time past, the fuines inflitted for drunkenness are divided, and who thus enjoy the premium set on detection. Nor is national character a fac tor that can be omitted in the comparison. More social and gregarious, more volatile and less taciturn, not quite as well fed as tl e Scotchman or the lEnglisbman, the Irish man, whose national beverage is whiskey, slight indulgence in which stimulates him to noise and rowdyism, exposes himself and tempts his capture by the police, while the prudent Scot and the taciturn Saxon manage to reach home without their ine briety being detected by the police. Thus, upon all these grounds, the number of ar rests or convictions for drunkenness, in the three kingdoms, fails to indicate the rela tive intemperance of the countries illustra ted by the corrected adage :-"There are not more motes in the sunbeam than in the shade; but the light reveals their presence." And so as regards the amount of intoxi cating drink consumed. 'The ardent spir its must be supplemented by ale and por ter, which are English beverages, or by their equivalent alcoholic element, in order to have a fair return of the consumption for each country. While another and an important consideration is the different distribution of populatioi, civic and rural, in the three kingdoms, with its conse quences. Save in the larger cities and towns, which are few and sparse, restau rants, comfortable eating houses, and coffee shops are very rare in the generality of market towns in Ireland, and almost un known at rural fairs, so that the agricultu ral classes, who often travel long distances in broken weather, are drivel into the public house; whereas such accommodation is familiar, attractive and cheap in all towns of any importance throughout Eug land and Scotland. With these explanations we may now sunmmarise tl:e Return (;Io. 437-1878), moved for by Mr. Henley last Session, of the number of persons taken into custody for drunkenness and disorderly conduct, in each city and town in the United King dom, for each of the years 1851, 1861, and 1876. Several difficulties crop up in the returns, but we shall notice one only, namely, that the cffcial departments were not able to estimate the population of the cities and towns in England and Wales in 1876. We propose to supply it, by as suming that the increase in population in the cities and towns in question between 1871 and 1876, in England, was about equal to that in the general population of the whole country. Supplying this omis aion the return stands thus : Istimated Committed in 1876 for Cities and Population, Drunkennes and One to Towns in 1876. Disorderly Conduct Persons. ngllnd...O.0.000oo000 104,174 96 ecotland.... 1.264 402 58.630 it. Iretand..... 79.437 8.78i 90.1 Total.... 12,062,839 171,585 70.3 These figures show, no doubt, the con trast of the distribution of population, civic and rural, in the three kingdoms, the above referring to little short of half the inhabitants oft England, more than one third of the population of Scotland, and only one-eighth of thoee of Ireland; hence deductione drawn from the table most be aftlcted w;ithl the weaknjes, of ouch inequal ity. Making, however, due allowance for thie, it is wholly irinuflcient to explain the vast cor tl:ct between tihe reinieo for Ire land notd SNutland, les than 2 of the civic polpulatien of Niet tand onl piyrng to the magistrates one person charged with drink and disorderly conduct, while it takee 9l, or nuore than four times as many, to supply one from a like population in Ireland. The difference between the results in England and Ireland is trilling, but the number affected in E:gland is more than twelve times greater. No doubt it may, oand will be said that a large, perhape the largest portion of the drunkards in Scotland are Irish ; but the same apology has been made for the prevalence of other northern vices and successfully refuted. In each of the countries there is, unfor tunately, gigantic work to be done in di minishing the horrible vice of drunkenness; our duty is not to cast reproach on any, but to vindicate a race and a nation upon whom an unmerited amount of obloquy is cast, and to set the triiu facts before the world. - -.--,a -- - If you had sone dear frtend living loisc by, ou would itt , go to Mee ImII, and tihe dt al r lie as to 3 iu, the oftener you would vcit I:i ni, Colr dear Lord is always in the B!esred Sacrament expecting yon.

LOAN OF $250,000 Issued by the Board of Administrators of the Roman Catholio Church of the Diocese of New Orleans, at their meeting of the 11th of January, 1878, 1878with the authorization and approval of the Holy See, hearing date November 8tb, 1877. SAID LOAN COISISTS IN AN ISSUs OF 2940 MORTGAGE BONDS, DIVIDED INTO FOUB SERIES. AS FOLIOWSs Series A, 40 Bonds of $I000 Each. Series B, 100 " of 200 " Series C, 1000 " of 100 " Series D, 1800 " of 50 " These Bends, dated January slet, 1878, are signed by the President, the Treasurer and the Secretary of said Boardof Administrators, with the seal of the Soclety aared to each, and are paraphed "~N Vafslr"' by Octave de Arms, a Notary Public in this city. They bear an annual tnterest of 5 per cent met from the data of issue to maturity, which interest is payable semi annually as per Coupons attached, via: On the lot of July and on the let of Janua-y of each succeeding year. The capital ia payable at par in twenty years from datas, by drawlngs to be effc:ed annually, commencing January let, 1884. The interest and curtallment are payable in New Orleans, New York. Rome, Paris, and in several other cities of the United States and Eunrope, which will be hereafter dealgnat d. The Subsorlption Is Opened: -IN NEW ORLEANS At the Archbishop's Residence, Secretary's Offie ; At A. Carriers & Sons, Commission Merchants; At the Hibernia Insuranoe Company's Office At the People's Bank. OPJECT OF THE LOAN. During the criais which followed the war of secession, and which weighed so heavily on the State of Louisiana. the Administrators of the Diocese of New Orleans assumed liabilities which they have determined to I quidate. In the past year a better state of affairs loomed up in the fnancial situation of the Diocese. That improvement will increase as the rate of interest claimed by its creditors Is lessened. The conventional rate, in Louisiana, is too high for a religious sooiety, the revenues of which, though entirely secure, are nevertheless limited, for such a society cannot look for eventual profits in contingent under takings or in speculations altogether inconsistent with its mission of benevolence and coarl'y. Therefore it isa not with a view of creating a new debt that this loan is negotiated, but in order to unify and consolidate anteriorliabilities. and obtain thelrgradual and regular extinction by means of the ord nary revenues of the Diocese, and without endangering the Church property, although affecting it Such is the plan posaltively approved by His Holiness, Pins IX, and unanimously adopted by the Board of Administra tors of the Roman Catholic Church of the Diocese of New Orleans. SEIURITIES. The Diocese of New Orlears, a corporation consti toted under the laws of the State of Louisiana, by the name and style ef "'iHE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH OF THE DIOCESE OF NEW ORLEANS,' afl rds to its cre,'it'o s-ecuritiee that areboth material and moral. As a corporation legally iostitutod it enjoys all the rights an d privrlegrs of a civil body. It cen contract debts, acquire, borrow, alienate and mortgage its pro. perties, whether movable or immovable, under the prescription of its Charter. At their meeting of January Ilth, 1878, the Council of said Society unani. I monsl determnoed. for the reasons above stated, to issue at the rate of 5 per cent, a single loan of $30 OC0, secured by a special mortgage on all the mor'gagable real estate of the Diocsee; and therefore, by a deed dated January i6th, 1870, passed before 0. de Armes, Notary Public in New Orleans, the above resolution was carried into effeet, by the granting of a special mortgage on all the mortgsgable real estate of the Diocese to secure the Bonds thus issued, whlah said mortgsge was duly recorded, as will appear by certid cates of the Recorder of Mortgages annexed to said act in the office of said Notary. Besides this solid guarantee, said Corporation pledges its honor and good faith for the faithful diseharge of the above obligations. REAL ESTATE OFFERED AS SECURITY. Prom the official report recently made to the Holy See, the Church property of this Dioceae is divided as follows . Independent or unmortgagable properties, valued at about............. ..............,t,,000 Morteagable properties valued at Its mini mom rate ............................... 1,080,000 This latter, the only real estate affected by the mart gageaforesaid, and worth double the amount of the loan, include many bui!dings lots, fle:ds and other productive properties not dedic tied to the worship of God.
