ICcadeneed from Aseoclated Press Telegra·ns ioRlEIOl Tna EASTERN QUErsnoN.-The mission of Cohunt Sohouvaloff to St. Petersbourg it now ap pears, has been a complete snoec, for sino his return to England the prospeot'f a peao, fal settlement have improved a hid red fold. Atleit this is the opinion of the Epropean preo which is confirmed by the pnblrb utter ances of such statesmen as havrd had Occasion to speak during the last week. It is now gen erall believed that the Congress will meet in Berlin. about the 11th of Jane, Russia having agreed to submit the treaty to disnussion and revision. The basis of the agreement is said to be as follows: "BuAgaria to be divided into two provinces -one north of the Balkans undera Prince, the other.. -bb of the Balkans, but not touchbing the .E1an Sea, with a Christian Governor, and a Bvernmeot similar to thS of an Eog lish colony. Turkish troops to permanently quit Bulgaria. England deplores, but will not oppose the retrooession of Bessarabia, or the annexation of Batonm, and reserves the right to discuss in Congress International arrange ,ents relative to the Danube. Russia promisees .ot to farther advance her Asian frontier or take -indemnity in land, or interfere with the claims of English creditors. The question of payment to be discussed by the Congress, which will also reorganize Thessaly, Epirus and other Greek provtnoes. Bayazid is to be ceded to Turkey, Turkey ceding thaaptovinoe ofKatour to Persia Russia agrees that the passage of the Dardanelles and Bosphoruenhall remain in statu quo. England will suggeqt at the Congress that Europe reorganize Bulgaria, and will disonss the question of the Russian uocupation and passage of tro~ps through Ronmania." Although affairs seem to have assumed this peaceful aspect we should not be_too sanguine that war has been averted. The four powere chiefly concerned c,'ninue their warlike pre parations with unremitting energy and the London Tinmes and other English papers have commenced the agitation of another question which may poaeibly breed troub!e; viz: the .ccessity oestablishbing an English protector ate over Turkey in Asia. Besldes, the Russian unofficial papers are obafliog under what they reem to consider a backdown on the part of Russia. Meanwhile the Russian forces in the feld are suffering terribly from disease, 15,000 having died in two months on the lines near Constantinople alone. Another source of anxiety is the growing strength of the Mussul. man insurgents in Bulgaria who number 30,000 and occupy positions that are almost impregn able.

Another dispatch says: Revolutionists are rising and arming in vast numbers : a general outbreak is daily expected. Prominent Ler siste here are preparing to go to the frontier. Cr a.-BHarana, May 27.-Captain General Jovellar, has received a dispatch from Gen. Martinez Campos, stating that a large number of insuorgents have just surrendered, including a chief named Limfana Sanchez, with one bundred and seventy officers and two hundred mgn and two hundred women and children. Toit is considered the Arst step towards the surrender of the remnants of insurgents. Antonio Maoe.s Commander-in-Chief of the Cuban forces, has arrived in New York. He represents the patriots about 1,000 strong op posesd to 40.000 Spanish troops. Hle says he has made no terms with the Spanish Govern nent, has not surrendered eto., but can give yo satisfactory explanation of why the Span lards let him pass through their lines. He thinks theconcilatory policy of Gen. Jovellar and Martinez Campos has done more injury to the Cuban cause than all the Span;'h forces combined, and has caused large d.fections from the patriot ranks. UNITED STATES.

Chace, Robeson, Weetamore, the two Tecoum sbeh and the two Wampanoag mills, besides the Border City, Sogsmore and Union, there are nearly 12,000 out of 30,000 looms remaining idle this week. It is stated other mills will shut down next week. Some are running on contracts and cannot stop at present. Many here think the mills ought to have stopped long ago, and that if the movement should ex tend now through the whole of New England trade woold be started in the fall, and its imt polse would keep business moving. By the stoppage of these mills some 4,000 persons are thrown out of employment. TERRIBLE STORM IN WiscoNsiN.-Forther reports from the tornado district indicate the loss of life and property as far greater than first reported. The town of Perry seems to have been the first place in Milwankie county touched by the storm. Thence it swept across the lower part of the county, entering Jeffer son county, near Fort Atkinson, and veered around to the north, and then to the east. Primrose, Perry and Mentrose, in Milwankie. suffered severe damage. Reports indicate 30 lives lost, and between 50 and 100 injured in this coonoty alone. The track of tte storm was gverywhere marked by desolation and ruin Its width was from a quarter to half a mile. It lifted in several places only to come down in others with renewed fury and force. It was accompanied by thunder and lightning of the most terrifying nature. The belt of country traversed is low and wet-a favorable condition for the development of atmospheric electricity. A storm of like intensity passed over nearly the same belt of country about twenty five years ago. News from the interior is very slow in reacting here, but from so ,counts already received, it is evident that the worst is yet to be heard. The loss to property cannot be estimated, but will undoubtedly reach hundreds of thousands dollars, while the loss of life it is feared will largely exceed the present estimates. The New York CathoAe Herald, in a recent issue, gives a short sketch cf the life of Aroh bishop Gibbons, from which we take this statement : Since the aooensioi of Archbishop G:bbone to the primatial See of the Uuited States hie has written many able articles in the Cat,holic JMirror. In a late number of that excellnt journal he gives a brief atd clear idea of what a Catholic paper should be. IIe saes: "Ac cording to our view a Catno'.ic paper abhnid be a model of dignity, trutihfnlness and clean linens It shon!d practice what it preaates. It should not wound chatlty. It most not violate varacity, It should not b3 fool-mouth ed. It most not bear false witneso against its neighbor. In rbort, it ston'r be an example of religion in pratice." OUTRAGES ON CATHOLICS IN S7WITZE. LAND. Liverpool Catho!io Times, May 17. The Government of Geneva has lately exhibited a tendency towards an utter disregard for honesty, decency, or feeling, in dealing with Catholic subjects; but, on the 5th instant, by its orders an act was perpetrated which W3e of all unusually disgraceful and outrageous nature, and which cle:srly shows the line of policy pursued towards the Church in Switzerland. The occurrences took place in the canton of Valais ard the commune of Chene Blonrg, where the Catholics quietly and inoffensively carry out the diffenent services of their religion. For some time past they have been oppressed and made to feel as if they were inferior to their fellows of a different religion. They bore this tyranny with signal patience. They were robbed of their splendid temple in which they assembled to worship their God. It was handed over to the members of a sect that aided not in building it, nor expended money on its decorations. This act of confiscation fell with trying bitterness upon them, as they were thenceforth com polled to worship in a poor and lowly chapel. But even in the humble tenement they are not allowed freedom of religion. Their chapel is considered a fitting object for pillage, and they themselves legitimate subjects for insult antd degradation. By an order of the Government of Geneva a police force entered their place of worship whilst the congregation are engaged in a religious ceremony, violently take posses sion of the sacred vases and other objects made use of in acts of worship, and not content with offering indignities to the members of the coi gregation, they attempt, in t`-ir seacriligioneu audacity, to seize and take away the Blessed Sacrament, at the time exposed on the altar. And yet, whilst such revolting acts are ordered and sanc tioned by authrity, the articles of the Federal Coustitutiou proclaim the inviola bility of liberty of conscience, and guar antee freedom of worship. A petition, which bears the signatures of the commu nal electors of the canton of Valais, which protests indignantly against this horrible act of spoliation, has been presented to the Federal Council, a.il it remains to be seen whether the constit.tional guarantees are as the petition exprr-ees it "a truth and a protection for all' or a mockery and a delusion so far as they relate to the freedom of Catholics. That there is some hope the Catholics may one day, by their courage and energy, put a stop to those disgraceful perseeu tions, is to be found in such facts as the following reported by the same paper : The Catholics of the Jura, declining .to he enteeiletd by the persecutions, have fought a succeseaul electoral battle in five dietricts, wianing all the seats, and putting tihe official candidates to rout. They have been united by the necessities of their position, and they seem determined to tender intolerance somewhat more difficult than heretofore. DEFELOPMENT OF THE REPUBLICAN I'ARTY IN ITALY. Rome correspondence London Register, May II. Considerable curiosity and excitement have accompanied the Congress of Repub lican Associations which was held on Tues day morning in the Argentina Theatre. About a hundred deputies represented 400 societies; the remainder of the gathering was comnposed of Roman Republicans, of journalists, and of an enquiring and curi ous crowd, which always comes to the front on occasions such as this. The depo ties addressed one another by the title "'Citiazn," and many of them were remark able in their appearance, with large beards, long hair, and broad-brimmed felt hats. The usual fiery speeches distinguish ed this meeting of the leaders of the future republic. A letter from Aurelio Saftl made mention of a republican constitution and spoke of the "reintegration of Italian terri tories still submitted to the yoke of stran gers." This sentiment was received with rapturous applause. Oa a succeeding day, at another meeting of the Congress, a citi zen, Barbaro, developed this thought further, when he recommended to the president to include PIalta with the Italian territory yet unredeemed. klowever the Italian Gavernmeut may regard t' e mrve ments of these eociet: a, it is we!l known that were Malts acrq;red by them, either throgglh int .u or by force, it aouldi. bLo taken- pi5s-,'-nlii in f byv I:ly w:t i tihe clt; z-u R tn!t:t.h,; t ;:.t : !i .

T1i:Leae words were loudly applauded by a large number of those present. In the last sit ting of the Congress, citfizen Imbriant pronounced a discourse, in which he pro tested against Austria, which oppresses two Italian provinces, and he sent "a frater nal salutation to those who are groaning to day in dark prisons because that they loved their country, Italy." A vote of thanks was then passed to the Rman Mu nicipality, which had given tlh use of thee hall of the Argentine Theatre to the Con gress. It is to be hoped that the Munlci pality will record this vote aniing the faisti of Modern Italianlz. d RiJme. An order of the day enumerating tou means judged bent to attain the proposed aim of the Congress was then passed. Among these means are-popular agitation in every way which local circumstances allow; popular conferences held periodi cally for the propagation of the idea of popular sovereignty, and the organizing of manifestations of a national character; popular publications, development of agri cultural associations, institution of rifle practice, "and measures to be taken for all that can concur to the realizatloo of anso armed nation; and, finally, development of women's associations." That the word 1epublican be added to the titles of all existing associations was also determined upon. At parting the members shouted "Viva Mazzini !" "Viva Garibaldi !" Signor Nicotera strives to embarrass the Govern ament by an interpellation on the permia sion accorded to the Republicans to as semble in Congress. THE FIRST ASSEMBLY OF GENTLEMEN IN THE WORLD. IIOW ENGLISH GENTLEMEN BEHIIAVE TIIEM SELVE S. In the record of the proceedings of the House of Corommons on tle 13;h of May we find the following: Mr. O'Donnell moved the reduction of the vote by the sum of £31),00)0, a special grant to Messrs HIansard, for supplying a more complete record of the debates. Mr. Gray, in supporting the motion, was greeted with derisive cheers from the min isterial benches below the gangway, and much interruption, in which sounds of the ,mewing ot a cat were distinctly audible. Mr. Sullivan called attention to this method of interruption, and asked for the interposition of the chairman. The chairman oxpressed a hope that as notice had been taken of the matter, the offence would not be repeated. Mr O'Connor Power did not think the subject ought to be passed over so easily. especially as it was not the first time that sueach unseemly interruptions had proceeded from the same quarter. He was prepared to drag the offender to jastice by distinctly naming him, unless he had the good taste to acknowledge the offense and apologise for it. Mr. O'Donnell said he was also prepared to point out who the offender was. The chairman remarked that it was not osual to name a member, but to move that his words be taken down. Mr. O'Sbaughuesay pointed out that it was impossible to t:ake down this peculiar kind of utterance. Mr. Gray intimated that he felt no annoyance at the interruption, and he believed that the heon. member from whom it proceeded was able to imitate the lan guage of other animals in a still more natural manner. The subject then dropped, and after some further discussion upon the merits of the proposed grant to Messrs. iansard, the amendment wat withdrawn. At half-past twelve Mr. O'Donnell moved to report progress, and after a discussion lasting an hour and a half the motion was rejected by 200 votes to 34. Mr. Parnell then moved that the chair man do leave the chair, and a discussion ensued. The Freemsas' Journal has a telegram stating that " it has seemed good to the Holy See to hbange the Bishop's Cathedral Cburch from Vincennes to Indianapolis, Indiana." Edito rially the Freeman says: The See of Vincennes. Indianas. was sta, lIsteh in 1l 3, the beloved Sinmon Gsbri:l brn"e being its first Bishop.

While the late See, Vlncennes. has, bisides the Cathedral, only one church (Ger anmu), and a chapel of the Academy of the Sis ters of Providenlce, Indianapolis rejoices in fire churches, one of themn a Franciscan Conventual church, with five or six priests; and there are. besides, live chapels attaihed to as many Convents of various Religions Sisters. Beyond this, Indianapolis is the most cen:ra' point for Bunthern Indians, and mostearily acoe.sible, seven railroads, from east, wi st north and south, converging there. There Is also, at that point, ant immuense amount of a Is. sionary and reform work to do, as, besides an Insane Asylum, State Legislature, and an el borate system of godless schools, Indianapolis, twenty years ago, had the reputation of having more Protestant meetin g-housee than any other city of its size in the Un ion. SHAD IN A MITL RilVER. From the Plesyoue. On Wednesday last Mr. W. M. Russ, of the,United States Fish Commission, and his assistant, Mr. Thomas Taylor. deposited in Amite River, abolut fifteen miles from Lake Maurepas, one hundred thousand young shad, of the kind known as the white shad. The shad were transported by rail in cans from the hatchery, with some difficulty,-in water that had to be renewed every two hours. Mr. Rues states that by November the little shad in Amite will be from five to seven inches long, sad that they will then seek salt water, which most be by a route through Maurepas and Lake Pont chartrain. They will again return to the fresh water of the river in spawning time, and will multiply very rapidly year after year. The shad attains its full siz in the third year, when it becomesa delicious fish, weighing from seven to twelve pounds. It does not bite the hook, anrd mnust be caught by seise at the piroper season of the year. A REMERDY FOR STRIKES. Philadelphia Ledger. PIlans for dealing with the labor ques tion are more onumerous than practical, but here is one that has worked wellj in Rhode Island, and may be found useful wherever there is cheap ground near large mills or factories The employees of the A. kc W. Sprague estate, numbering near ly ten thousand, are represented by the manager of the estate to be more contented than he hbaever known them to be hither to, notwitUltanding the reduction of their wages. He ascribes this apparently anom alous contentment to the fact that the Sprague estate furnishes each head of a family in its employ with enough ground for a good sized garden-from a quarter to half an acre. Low wages have compelled the workmen to cultivate these plots of ground, and they have found that they can almost raise subsistence for their families by tilling the soil, and by that means, even with the lowest wages, they are able to save something. It is also said that the moral effect of the cultivationl of little gardens is excellent, the men having lees idje time to be tempted into dissipation, and soon learnig to take a pride in thre home which their o,v industry builds up for them. A further advantage is that this miniature farming qpens the way to work that will suplport The laborer when he is thrown out of employment at his regular trade or calling-it gives hiM a new string to his bow, and makes him so much the morm independent. Green fields and gardens are not always so near to the fac tory and workshop as they should be, but ,a good many people are in a position where they can make use of the hint contained in this record of what mnakes the Sprague em ployees cheerful and contented under low wages. Tim " AeszsU " IN P'PAI.-A Protestant author thus describes the "Angelus" in Spain: At sunrise a large, soft-toned bell is tolled from the tower of the Cathedral three times, somrnmoring all the inhabitants, wherever they are or however occupied, to devote a few moments to the performance of a saort prayer in honor of the Blessed Virgin, called the Aigelue Il)onmini At the close of the evening the b I 1tolls again.

Any other plan of enforo. ine moral ernt,,srets would hare been met whit a ho-l of ereertison. The suoceee of these schools bad been most consoling. Oat of 1,186 dis charged during three years ending with the year Ir475, no less than 996 were known to be doing well-he quoted from Mr. Lontaigne and only four bad been committed to prison (cheers). Now, of the qualifications for en trance to the indostrial schools under the met, be mentioned two-found begging, and not having any home or settled piace of abode or proper guardianchip. lie turned their atten tion now to the cireumetencee, the require ments, and the probaMe fate of the 1O,000 blildren who inhabited their workhooses.. In what way did they differ from those children who were qualified to be placed in industrial schbools T Begging-was not their whole life in the workhouse an appeal for alIme (bcheers). Having no home-were those white washbed sepulobree of human hope, where life was measured out by the ounce, to be called homes ? Proper gnardianship-be could not tell what beoeme of those children-hbe would tell them how many had been exported and what they cost, but once outside their own dis triote nobody seemed to know what became of them, nobody neemed to care (hear, hear). The young of the brute was carefully pre pared for its future bnisnens in life. The young of the Christian was turned out to take chanc . In. the words of Mr. Lentilgne "llundrelds of children who, under other cir Oanmstuoees, might have become useful mem bern of society, are condemned without any fault of tneir own, to sink on the very three hold of independence into the pauper and on productive cleass." When would men of basi nees understand that this did not pay, that they could not let this condition of things con tinue? (Hear, bear ) In the workhousse there was no intention to provide industrial training, no appliances tr giving it, and if there were, bow, being in hourly contact as they were with the wrecks of life, how could the children escape or surmount the depreseleg infnlences which surrounded them " ('Cbeers). The task of the teacher wae a hopeless one everything was against him, even to the pa rents of the children, who were more likely to eorse than to bless him, and whose fate and example were alikedemoralising to the obhil dren. Two things they learned, and the ans son sank into their very marrow. One was that society war bound tO support them, the other war that they owed society seither labor nor thanks. Yet Mr. Lentaigne said : " A greater amount of intellectual power lies un developedt and lost for wsotcf coltivation in a tenth of the workhouses in the eentre of freland than in Blgiornm." Colonel Chiohester I onluded by an eloquent appeal to the ladies to take this matter of indnutrial schools into their own bands, and in this way to edvance the oause of Christian education and well being of the country at large in a degree which they could not imagine (applauee). A TIMELY CIRCULAR QV AMISERMENTS. The Biltimore Mirror publishes the sub joined circular from Archbishop Uibbots to the Clergy of his Diocese: Rev. Dear Sir- As the senaon is approaching when excursions and picnTics are osnally held, I request you to call the attentioof ybtor con gregation to the statute of thu diooces bearing upon thin notj-ct. Experience has shown tlrht picnics and ex oursions are a fr eqent occasion of scandal andodiseipar ion. and that even those which are undertaken under the auspices of the Chroch oso escape the stigma of license and Jiseditd caston only by the prudent forelight and vigil ance of the pastor. No pecuniary profits resulting from popular amusements can oompeeaste for a single sin or soene of disorder, and I need not add that a scsndal, far from being palliated, is aggrava ted, when committed on an ocesuion of this kind. lt view of the dangers attending even those festivities whioh are undertakeo in the ir.er aets of charity and religion, the statutes of the diocese require, as you are aware, that no in toxiosting drinks should 'e sid or nrad on the premises, and that the pastors, I.y thi.r presence and o unsel, shoold contribato to bo nliitituennce of decirata and order.
