"HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THEM THAT BRING GLAD TIDINGS OF GOOD THINGSI" Terma--ifslgecopy, sOenUts UyNal,S-ti aWeWs VOLUME XI. NEW ORLEANS, SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 2ai, 1878. NUMBER 16. Moraling Star and Catholic 'iessengser MIW OBR.ALB. SUNDAY, MAY 96. 1678. TILEGBAPRIO SVIUXAT. rCoadensed from Associated Press Telegrams. IORIZGN Rowx.-It is said that the German Govero ment and the Holy See are negotiating for an amicable settlement upon the basils of a Bill easuel in 1821. The so-called Liberal papers contibue to disonsm the advisability or neces sity of the Pope's leaving Rome during the -ummer for the benefit of his health. One dasy they state positively that he will go to Monte Casino or some other country place, the next that he has determined not to leave the Vat loan. IaUzLAD -The election for member of the House of Commons for the county of Down, Ireland, has resulted in Lord Castlereagh, Con servative, receiving 6,076 votes, and Mr. An drew, Liberal, 4,701. Tau EAsTmeR QUarSToN -The drspatchbe darlng the week have been as contradietory seat any time during the past six months, one day war being inevitable, the next peace ap pearing certain. In fact the whole question is so muddled up that it impossible for even the olosset observer among the great Eapro gJpanJournals to venture upon an opinion. Count 8ohonvaloffh expected in London to day o his return from St. Petersburg. From remarks made by him at Berlin and other pleaes on his journey, it is thought that his missoionhas been sueooesefl, at least to a cer tain degree. He is said to be the bearer of a molafled proposition from the Czar. Upon the strength of these report, hopes are once more entertained that the Congress will meet at an early day. It most not beanpposed, however, that for these reasons the preparations of the several countries for war have ceased. On the contrary the greatest energy is exhibited on all sides. The Russians continue to exhibit a tendency to grsdelly creep up towards the capital, keep ing the Turks constantly on the alert. Fresh reinforcements are constantly going to Bolga -is and Roumelia. Odesse is swarming with soldiers and shipping: troops, guns and stores are going thence to Bengas on the Black Bea or by the Bender Railway to Roumania and Bulgaris. The Turks are not idle; they have brought troops across the Bzsphorus from BSutarla until 130 batallions now man the northern lines. Heavy siege guos have been moved from the Bosphorns batteries into these lines, while batteries on the Asiatic side have been strengthened so as to form, in coj onction with the fleet, a line of defense to which they might retire in case of need, though they are more than ever confident of their ability to hold their positions. The Yakit and Baesiret newspapers of Constantinople, published a let ter from Osman Pssha denying that he said Oonstantinople was not susceptible of defense Against a considerable Russian force, and de elarlng he would never be a party to the dis grace of retiring before an enemy much weak ened by illness and fatigue. GanmurY.-In consequence of oirnumstances connected with the affairs of the Protestant Evangelical Church, Falk, the Minister of Pub lic Worship, has resigned. He has ever been one of the most bitter enemies of the Catholic Chrhob and it seems strange that his downfall should have been brought about by his inter ference in Protestant Church affairs. The government has brought forward stringent bills against the Socialists and a debate on their adoption is now in progress. In this matter the Liberals oppose the Government. Eror.Mn.-The Press Association under stands that replying to a request of the Duke of Westminster to receive a deputation with a peace declaration signed by 200,000 persons, the Marquis of Salisbury, Minister of Foreign Affairs, has stated that he is unable to receive the deputation. The expected debate in the House of Com mons, took place last week but did not dev elope anything of consequence, the vast ma jority of the members concurring in the opinion habt the government Jn the present crisis should not be compelled to make public its ne gotiations and, in fact, having the fall confl denoe of the people, should not be hampered in any way. UNITED STATES. WAsHwesroN.-After a week's hard fighting the Democrate succeeded in adopting the reso laution providing for an investigation into the frauds committed in Florida and Louisiana during the Presidential campaign. The fol lowing committee was appointed: Hons. Clarkson Potter, of New York; Wm. R. Mor rison, of Illinois; Eppa Hunton. of Virginia; John MoMahon, of Ohio; J. C. S. Blackburn, of Kentucky; W. S. Stenger, of Pennsylvania; Thomas R Cobb, of Indiana, Democrats; B. F. Butler. of Massaohuettes: Frank Hisoook, of New York; J. D. Cox, of Ohio, and Thomas B. Reed, of Maine, Republicans. Subsequently a resolution to extend the power of the inves tigating committee to any State where there mas. b9 well grounded allegations of fraud was adopted. ,The Rouse Committee on Levees, etc., has unanimously approved the bill appropriating $3.871574 for closing the crevasses and raising and strengthening the levees of the Missie sippi, and the chairman has introduced it in the House, where there seems every probabili ty it will pass without much opposition. The sessions of the Senate have been chiefly interesting on acocunt of Senator Lamar's speech in iavor of the Texas Pacific Railroad S'bill, Lt.hzldebat on tSe House bill to bill. s hsssrn!=.4Oaaaf·..a . Brigadier General with the pay corresponding to the rank.

He had been greatly honored by the people and be might live long enough to be honored again. Blaine and Hill had a passage at arms in which the former was bad ly used up. The Republicans who spoke, outside of the Blaine following, plainly indicated that Grant would be their choice for President next election. Sargent's amend was adopted; yeas 30, nays 28, Lamar, o yslesippl, being the only Democrat who vo n favor of the bill The question then r 1sed on the bill as amended, placing Shield the retired list with the rank of Brigadier ral, and Grant with the rankof General, and t was rejected ayes 30, nays 34. PoLrrck. ConvENTroNs "Nokn -The Re. publican Convention of Vermont last Thurs day endorsed the policy of President Hayes. The Republican Convention of Pennsylvauni ignored the President altogether. The Dam ocratio Convention of the same State, last Th 2raday, without a dissenting voice, adopted resolutions approving a thorough investigation of the eleotorial frauds of 1876, but opposing any attack upon the Presidefial title as daun gerous to our institutions a fruitless in iti results. The Demoorats nominated A H. Dill for Governor. TaE FENIAN PANIC IN CANADA.--T0ough there seems to be no grounds for the opinion that even a seotion of any of the Irish organ. izations of the United States contemplate an invasion of Canada, the panic in the country continues and extensive preparations are be ing made all along the frontier to resist and defeat any sudden incursion. Maxuco. GALVaeTON, May 23.-A special from Rio Grande City to the News says : The town of Reynosa was captured yesterday by the Lerdo revolutionists, and a prestimo of $8.000 levied The party has since moved southward.

The behavior of some of England's " re I serves" in this country since their enrollment can .hardly have been very comforting to the authorities. They do not at all appear to be imbued with a sense of "the gravity of the situation" or concerned about the peril In a which "British interests" are alleged to have been placed; they do not believe in Eogland as a defender of "the faith of treaties," for most of them have heard of the Treaty of Limerick and other similar performances on England's part; they are not in the slightest degree incensed against the Russian Bear, for his claws or fangs were never reddened in the blood of their race-that being a pleasure which the British Lion kept entirely to him self; they have no quarrel with the Cossacks, and would be quiteas likely to get up a shindy with the Ghoorkas if they came within range. Feelings of this kind found audible expression in the course of the row which some of these ''reserves" got up at the Harcourt street ter. minus on Monday last. Horrified loyalists heard exclamations from them to the effeot that they would prefer to serve out some time in Spike Island rather than fight for the b-y British Government, while others were heard to declare that they would muoh rather go at Sa "bobby" than a Russian any day. Suiting the action to the word, a number of them made what appears to have been an entirely unprovoked attack on two or three members of the police force who happened to be present. Such attacks we hold to be wholly devoid of any exoose or justification. It is very likely that the majority of the Dublin police are quite as good Irishmen as a great many of the Sreserves," know fully as muooh about Eng I land's treatment of their country, and feel not a whit more concerned about the safety of "British interests" in any part of the world. Certainly if any charge of want of patriotism is to be urged against them it is not Irishmen wb:, have volunteered into England's military service who should throw the first stone. We have no doubt that there are patriotic hearts beating under red coats, but it ought to be easy for Irishmen in each circumstances to find better wasa of manifesting their feelings than d getting up rows in Irish towns and Infoietina o serious bodily injeries on Irish civilians and SIrish police.

PATRIOTISM From the Dublin Nation we take this re view of a new book entitled : "Patriot ism, Patriots, and anti Patriots." By Pa tricines Hibernicus : A, thoughtful writer, who takes for this occasion the nom de plume of Patricine Hibernicus," ba4 just given to his country men a very interesatintg and u4eful little work on Patriotism, true and false-deal ing also with that l.egation or contrary of f patriotism which there is no single word I in the English language to express. The theme is a fruitful and a tempting one, and it is handled by "Patricina" not only with considerable skill, but also with an evident desire to enlighten, edify and elevate the minds of his readers, to deepen and strengthen their love of country, to show them how reasonable, natural and right eons is that noble feeling, and thereby to help in making them better citizens and better moo. The little work, in short, is written by a patriot, with a patriotic intent, and a perusal of it would, we think, be advantageous to very many of our coun trymen. The writer divides his subject t into four parts, of which the first is "con cerning the virtue of patriotism in general." He shows how this virtue is a natural property of the human heart, and how the absence of it is sinply abnornal and mon stroes. The great Creator, in his wisdom, separated mankind into races and nations; "he who ignores this fact," says our au thor, "must close his mind alike to the history of the past and the testimony of the present." And then he says: A race of men thus separated by nature's own barriers from men of other regions, and united together by the use of a common lan guage, and by the possession of a common in terest, and, more than all, by the endearing tie of blood, sailed the land in which they dwelt together, as brethren in one household, by the fond name of motherland, and gloried in her honor and prosperity as in their own. Thus was generated in the heart of man the sentiment of patriotism. It was rude in the rude and reaned in the refined. But it was in all, whether rude or refined, a noble, natural, and generous sentiment. The refined and civ ilised man might apalyse and understand this sentiment better, but he could not feel it more deeply than his rode and univilised brother, t the denizen of thbe solemn forest or the wild prairie-the voice of nature spoke to the hearts of both, and from both received the same re sponse- "One touch of nature makes the whole world kin." The love of country is a senti ment as tender as it is deep-it resembles the love of a child for its parent ; and I know not Swhether poet, philosopher, or orator, ever f struck this fine chord in the human heart with a truer touch than did a North American In dian hobief when he said, in reply to one who urged him to leave the hunting grounds, the immemorial home of his tribe, for others which were represented to him as far better for their pnrposes-"They would not be as our own to uo," he said ; "can we say toour fathers' bones, I arise and follow as to this strange place I' Man loves the land of his birth with a love of predilection-that is, with a love beyond that felt by him for any other oontry--limply be eamss it is his own, his bisr-plass, the birth-place of his ancestors, and the resting-place of all that was mor tal in them. He loves it, Into floe, because it is more closely connected with him in his affections. his enjoyments, his hopes and his fears, and even in his sorrows, in the past, the present, and the future, than any other country upon the face of the earth. By the recognition of this important truth, thedistinction of isoe, we in no degree weaken the tie which unites all races and nations in one great brotherhood Patriotism, however, to be thoroughly beautiful and good, must be enlightened by, and in perfect accordance with, religion ; otherwise it may become depraved, vicious, harmful, and lead to many excesses. -This part of his subject our author well illos trates by a reference to some of the scenes of the French Revolution. In his next chapter he treats of national rights, of the immorality of invading sod endeavoring to destroy them, said of the steps lawful to be taken by those Wrho have suffered from sueach injustice. H says : The redress of bls'roontry)' wrongs is the aim of the true patrist, but the means which he should adopt fo4 the achievement of this great purpose mst lie suited to the oirom. stanoes of the time i1 which he lives and the nature of the powe at his disposal. Armed ygsistanoe to tyrau i may therefore at one peasdobe an got of.rta and a duty, and at another a crime. I do not, I could not with truth, maintain the wisdom of the great O'Connell dictum, that "the freedom of a na tion is not to be purchased by the shedding of a single drop of human blood," but I affirm that he who by peaceful means seeks to sooom plish his design, is a wiser, If not abetter man, than he who appeals to the arbitrament of the sword. To justify an appeal to the sword every degree of wrong or oppression does not suffloe. Three conditions are certainly re quired before the sword can be lawfully un sneathed :--lt, that the wrongs endured Are intolerable; 2nd, that there is no rational hope of redressing these wrongs by peacefuol agitation ; 3rd, that there exists a fair probe btlity of success in the case of armed resistance. He who, without these conditions, urges his fellow-countrymen to take up arms, is not their friend but their worstenemy. He who has never seen human blood shed in anger, and knows naughtof thedreadful evils entailed by war, save what he might have learned in the retire ment of his study, may talk lightly of engag ing therein. Had he witnessed the results of war-the gory horrors of the battle-field-the ravaged fields-the burned towns and cities; had te heard the wailing of the widow and orphan, he would say-"Assured indeedshould be that hope of freedom which should jostify me, before God and my fellow-oountrymen, in drawing down such woes upon my country." Next "Patricius" proceeds to treat of several classes of patriots, or pseudo patri ots. First there is the sham patriot, the man who really cares not a pin for the honor or interests of &is country, and who affects a regard for them only for the pur pose of advancing some objeoof his own. Then there is the Demagogue, who is ever "panting with eagerness to pour forth the flood of frothy verbosity which is ever swelling within him, like some highly effervescent fluid in a tightly-corked bot tie. He has at his command a large and varied stock of fine and catching words and phrases. He does not attempt to give them their true signification. He is unable or unwilling to do so. Such explanation would tender them useless for his purpose, by destroying the effect of appeals which are addressed to the passions and prejudices rather than to the reason of his auditors." Ouar author holds that sometimes the dem - agogue has an honest love for his country underlying the vanity that forms the chief ingredient in his composition; but there is another variety of the species-the renal demagogue, who is "utterly bad." Next he goes on to speak of "The Anti Patriot," the professed enemy of his country, who does all in his power, wilfully and deliber ately, to bring about the defeat, degrada tion and ruin of his native land. "Suop pose his country's ruin accomplished," writes "Patricinus," "her soil in the posses sion of her foe, her towns garrisoned by his soldiers, her flag rent, dishonored and trampled in the dust, then indeed the traitor openly triumphs and exults in her downfall." We think there are but few such monsters in any country. A far more numerous class are the Intolerants, of whom "Patricins" writes as follows : The intolerant patriot is a strangely incon sietent belog. The wrongs endured by his country are the legitimate theme of his denon. ciation. Now, what are the wrongs of which any subject and oppressed peop'e complain In general they are restrictions upon their just rights and liberties. aooh restrio tions, enforced by arbitrary power of the strong over the weak, are the reproaoh of the tyrant and the grievance of the oppre-end. hot the intolerant patriot is himself a tyrant, inasmuch as he denies to others liberty of thought and speech, and it is to be presume I that had he power he would also deny to all who differ with bim liberty of action. Hle de nies in practice the liberty he upholds In theory. He denounces as tyrannous that power whloh forbids him, under threat of pun Ishment, to ventilate his politial oplnions, while be himself deamI t9 ashm $he ezeselse id of asimilar right. He chooses for himself a ir- certain path along whihob he walks, and all his ae countrymen most walk with him or follow him is in that path under penalty of being denounced is in private and in public as traitors and anti be patriots. He even sometimes carries hie folly ry -to call it by no harsher name-so far as to on attempt to coerce all who differ with him into mo, submiesion to his dictates. He may be regard es ed by the majority of his fellow citizens as a d brainless, ignorant fanatio, who does not on ly derstand the first principles of the liberty he advocates; but he is not affected by the opin ion of others; he pushes forward furiously, his I month filled with imprecations, and his hand a, armed with a bludgeon, to terrify by threats is or beat into submission all who do not choose a to follow him as their leader. The objects of ea his enmity are not the enemies of his country. xt These be passes by. He would as soon think of attacking them as he would of confronting the levelled bayonet of the soldier, or the lead ed baton of the policeman. His violence is dl to rooted against men whose avowed opinions are m similar to his own. Men of this class may be sincere in their opinions, but their condueet is he highly jortous to the cause of freedom. They h drive hodet, intelligent, and self-respecting is men from out the arena of politics, which is . left to the brainless spouter and the rowdy he armed with his bludgeon. But not only do id they keep back the orderly, sober, and ntelli ,, gent from entering upon the field of political at agitation, but they even render them support th ere of a governsment t. though it may to ,at some extent be bad an t annous, yet offers a. greater liberty than could be hoped for under of the sway of such intolerant and brutal rowdies. m This is a sketch from the very life. m- "Patricins" next proceeds to sketch briefly n, but clearly "The Boasting and Bragging rd Patriot" and ",The Sponging .Patio." of These, we think, are not really separate e. and distinct classes; the Intolerant, above n. described, is usually a Braggart and a re Sponger also. If he succeeds by some un al expected ,coup in disturbing a patriotic al meeting, if he raids upon it with an organ - ized party of dupes, or of fanatics like himself, if he creates a furious riot, has the 1 assembly room wrecked, and gives or gets or a broken 'nose or a cut head, he boasts and e brags of Lie prowess for months afterwards as if he had captured a fort from the en e- emy or sunk an iron clad; he considers - himself a hero, and entitled to get any quantity of drink gratis from true patriots. e lie thinks that Irishmen who agree in his s political views and approve his acts ought id to feel themselves honored if he conde ty scends to "borrow" a little money from in them, or leaves them to pay any trifling debts he may have incurred while in their of locality. It is vain to argue with the In i tolerant. He cannot or will not be brought je to see the unfairness and nnwisdom of his ie conduct; the fact that even the cause to which he desires to serve must be lnjured r. by it is too remote anrd subtle a thing to be n. grasped by his intellect. He hasa crooked er sort of logic of his own by which he can 1e justify his folly to himself. Whatever tr policy or politician he dislikes be will tell ly you is a sham ; shams, he will then tell t. you, must be put down, erg. he is entitled id to employ for their suppression blackthorn id sticks, legs of chairs, paving stones, or any m other implements that may come handy to ,r him. Some of the Intolerants, however, ,n do not go in for physical operations of this e, kind ; they content themselves with keep :h ing up a war of words upon patriots who es are not of their own way of thinking, and u this might be fair enough only that they . consider they ought to have the aggressive y part of the war all to themselves. They ,f like to strike, but they expect not to be is struck again ; they think it excellent fun 25 to satirise "agitators," but they de not like it to have sham warriors laughed at ; they are very severe and wonderfully witty on o the delays, the disappointments and the r- failures of constitutional movements, but . they expect to have the collapse of their own plans and projects treated with infinite " tenderness. And then any little touch of '. reprisal provoked by their own conduct , they complain of as if it were an attack on d Irish patriotism, an effence against the na e tional cause, a stab at Mother Erin herself. :r But we need not further dwell upon the w morals or the manners of the several .e classes of professing patriots referred to m by "Patricius Hibernice." We feel cer tain that the honest and true men in the national ranks outnumber the Intolorants, ' Braggarts, and the Shams by a thousand to one. We believe that the political educa b tion of our countrymen is advancing ; and , we regard the little work before us as very ir well cnlculated to assist in the onward acd 0- ipwald nmovenrent. .

What is more, he did this with a frankness and fulness which was worthy of a priest who, by long years of real service,i had merited the beantiful sad fatherly mlessagest te klsntrsase wbhiahbather Beckx wrote to him on his lapse. Some of the circumstances of his return are told by one who heard it from himself. It seems that on being summoned to Rome, tSignor Corol had a long interview with the Cardi nal Secretary of State, who asked him if he were willing to withdraw the objeetion able passages of his book. He replied that he was willing to submit in everything to our Holy Mother. On his return home he wrote a letter, which he entrusted tothe Abbate Joseph Pecei, his old colleague, aad the brother of the Pope. When Leo XIIL read it, he made some modifications, and returned it through the friendly intersdt lary to Signor Caurd, who received it In a becoming spirit. "The Pope has doigted to write," he said; "I do not need to knoew or even to read ; I have only to aign.

Sixty-three delegates, representieg fifteen States, were present. At the last day's session the special committee on the relatioms of the Order to the Church reported the fol lowing preamble and resolutions: Whress We, the representatives of the An cient Order of ilbernians of the United States of Amerioa in oonvention assembled, are unsan moesly agreed that there is nothing either in the letter of the law of our orgsaniation thaee confiots with the decrees of the Council df Baltimore or the doctrines of the Holy Roman Cathollo Churob, but not beIng theologiams and being earnestly desirous as an orsganoe tion of complying with the laws of the Chae from wbihoh we all derive spiritual consolation; therefore Bola, That if there is anything in the Order at present in opposition to the dootrines of the Church we, so her obedient obhildren, are willing to reotify it as soon as her deciaslo is properly announoed. But until that deoiselo is enunciated we deem any attack upon the principles and objects of the Order, no matter from what souroe it emanates, an unwarranted abuse of an organisation whose objects are Chrletian charity, unity and mutual benevo lenos. .Relred, That our respect for the civil law and our admiration of the free institutions of this free oountry are ss steadfast and undying as our devotion to the Church whose traditions and teachings we so much revere. essolssd, That a copy of the foregolng pro amble and resolutions be sent to His Eminence Cardinal McCloskey, His Grace the Primate of Baltimore. and all the Arobblshope and Right Reverend Bishope of these United States, with the humble request that our standing as a Catholic organiration may be definitely bet tied. The whole of the afternoon session and meek of the evening was devoted to a consideration of this report. Nearly all theleadingmembers of the Convention spoke upon the subject, and the report was adopted without a dissenting voice. A committee of five will be appointed who, with the national omcers, are directed to lay the matter before Archbishop O:bbons, the Primate oZ Baltimore. The following ,fecers were elected : National Delegate, John Hart, of Jersey City; Natinual Secretary, Thomas Kerrigan, of New York; National Treasurer, E: L. Carey, of New York.
