CourrmRuTIONss.-His Grace, the Most Rev.
Archbishop, was so unwell last Sunday as to be
unable to visit the Churches of St. John the
Baptist and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, to
administer the soarament of Confirmation
accordinu to promise. On Tuesday, however,
feeling much better, he confirmed 37 persons,
nearly all of whom were converts, at the Con
vent of the Good Shepherd, and on Thursday,
Feast of the Ascension, he administered the
same Sacrament to 167 persons in St. Theresa's
Churchb, about fifteen of the number being
adult converts.

to several thousand dollars daily. The city

mation to that effct.

Supreme Indlfferenoe.
Beveral of our daily papers put on airs
of supreme indifference as to the habeas
corpus episode of the last few days. It
was, according to them, a tempest in a
tea-pot; they had virtuous regrets at see
ing a judioiary become so much Inter
ested in so trifling a matter, and showed a
majestic contempt for a controversy be
tween a couple of lottery ticket venders.
At the same time the public cannot but
remember that a poroon of the press pf
this city has not been absve devoting a whole
page at a time to the advertisements of one
of thoseeticket venders and pocketing a
consaderable amount of its ill-gotten gains.
The supreme indifference, and the superb
contempt, and the laborious belittling of
the Issue, though apparently directed
equally and impartially agalnst both par
ties, are not above suspicion. 'ane excite
ment was all working one way. If posses
had been called out by the respective
sheridli, Mr. Howard's posse would have
amounted to a dozen or two of his own
employees, while all the able-bodied men
in the city would, if necessary, have gladly
joined )he other. If Mr. Howard had him
self owned and published a lottery "organ,"
it could got have adopted a shrewder line
than to pooh-pooh the issue as unwoitby
the attentien of the public.
-Buat- factt4he-public-feeling whi
really did exist, the "advertising mediuops"
to the contrary notwithstaling, and which
exists to day sufficiently strongly and
zaiversally to take summary measures if
his were not an essentially law-abiding
Community, was not enlisted in a mere ,
iquabble of rival gamblers. It was an
,xhibition of the deep-seated public in- a
lignation that asee long existed among us a
it the fact that the lottery iniquity is
egalired at all, and particularly that It is
made a monopoly. There is no reason
why the same principle of monopoly, if
proper in this instance, should not be
extended to every other business. The
democratic principle is supposed to be that
every kind of business is open to every
body on the same terms. Certainly gov- c
srnment may put cqnditions to its exercise.
It may require a liese to be obtained; it
may stipulate a certain degree of skill or
competency; but these conditions apply to c
everybody alike,, and no one who meets
them is excluded. Upon the principle of
monopoly it is absolutely prohibited that
anybody shall exercise a certain calling,
except specified persons.
This is one of the worst features of des- e
potism. It assumes that all right vests in
the king and that he can concede such
portions thereb as he may choose to such
persons as he may prefer. The poisonous
principle of monopoly probably crept into
this country under the despotic government
of the old Spanish regime, and like every
other taint is hard to eradicate. If Louis
iana were the Island of Cuba we should
not be surprised to see monopolies sold out
to individuals, not only in the lottery, but
in many other kinds of business. It will
be an evil day for America if this fearful
poison should spread. No wonder that the
people are uneasy at it presence. Every
lnstinct of republican self-preservation is
shocked by the contact, and hence the
general interest in a conflict which our
"advertlsing mediums" sought so sedu
lonsly to ridicule as an undignified judi
cial squabble.
Well, the popular feeling was too im
perious to be trifled with and it triumphed.
The Governor, willingly or unwillingly,
abandoned his proteges and thereupon they
surrendered. We claim that this is a most
encouraging symptom. Little by little the
body politic of this State is recovering a
healthy tone and in the same ratio it is
sloughing off the diseased scabs and ulcers
that had accumulated during its sickness
and imprisonment. The Democratioparty
has been blamed for retaining in office cer
tain vagabonds and professional parasites,
but the Democratic party, too, was still
feeble from the wearing of chains. It could
hardly afford to kick the fellows who were
so officious in pretending to unlock its
fetters although they were already drop
ping off.
The little episode of last week is a symp
tom of courage and reaction and health.
Let us see if the coming election will not
clean out the nest a lIttle more.
Communism and Despotism
Extremes meet. We would especially
call this truth to the earnest attention of
our Communist friends. In speaking thus
we do not refer to the red flag brigands
who if they could, would subjogate society
to the reign of torch and sword, but to
certain enthusiastic philanthropists who in
all sincerity bewail the hardships of pov
erty, and in all kindness seek to invent
some human scheme for social ameliora
tion. All these plans seem to tend to one
grand centre, in fact, we might say, head
centre-and that is increased government
authorlty. They would take away from the
citizen and give to the ruler. The authors
contend that under the individual sys
rem, where each man may get what he can
and keep it, the rich grow too rich, and the
poor too poor, and that the proper remedy
for this is to prevent the acquisition, to put
all things in common and have administra
tors-wise and upright men-who shall see
that every man does his duty and get bhis
he.e is somet lng of good in this. It
was the very plan adopted by the early
Christians with the happiest results, and
could be made successful again with just
such material as that was. But taking
society at large, comprising, as it does, pow
erful elements entirely devoid of the
Christian spirit, we could not count on
any such result. The leaders among the
Christian Communists were chosen of
God; they were the Apostles and Bishops.
In socieV at large, is It so Among any
people, in any age, under any form of gov
ernment, elective or hereditary, do we find
only the wise and the good in authority 1
Not at all. As a general thing the men
who hold civil* power are politicians or
tyrants. They are ,unscrupulous and
selfish ; they conetantly seek to promote
their own interests and those of their
friends.. Would yoe expect them to do
better if fhey should bavremore power t Or
would you expect to geta different kind
of mep i office ? Either hope would be
utterly fallaclons, for history shows that
it is not virtue bat strategy that succeeds
in reaching political power, and that the
more absolute the power the greater the
efforts of designlag men to obtain it.
We speak not now of the utter futility
of trying to get honest work out of a pop
fitioa-Ubndercehb system- Everybody
knows how smart the negro slave used to
be in plalng sick, ino having swelled legs,
sprained joints, etc. The white race
would certanly eclipse the colored brother
in artifices of this kind. Everybody would
want ever3boy else to do the work and c
dodge it himself-sometimes with great
skill, always with great pertinacity. But, t
as we say, that is not the evil to which we c
now especially refer,
We speak of the rnlers-admilistratore
onu might call them-but masters you
would soon find theip to be. It would be
impossible to vest such universal power in I
merely human hands, uncontrolled by
religions principle, and not create a des
potism. What powers would it be Pre- t
cisely that of the father over his children, I
combined with that of the master over his *
slave, but without being tempered by af
fection on the one hand and self-interest
on the other. Everything would belong
nominally to the nation, but the rulers
would virtually have dominion over them
Sl4. Offices would be multiplied in every
direction and office-holders would abound.
Every man wholes now'foreman of a work
shop pould then be a government officer,
with more or less of despotic power, like a
sergeant or corporal in the army, and all I
this vast net-work of office-holders would
form a unit of power holding by a common
centre with a common purposeof controlling
everybody out of office. Government would
perform not only all its present functions, I
but four-fold as many more. Its power would
be proportionally multiplied, intensified ;
and confirmed, and the governed would i
ind themselves in actual slavery to an 4
authority which could lawfully sunerin
tend and control their every moment and
movement from the cradle to the grave.
It is true that these overseers, these ser
geants, might be elected by the people
themselves, but they would still form a class
with class instincts, and they would, taken
together, wield an overwhelming power
which would inevitably amount to des
potlsm. Despotism is an arbitrary use of
power, an abusa of power. It may, indeed,
be as well exercised within a limited
sphere as on the mightiest scale, but this
abuse is far less probable, where the power
is limited. There the government feels
its weekness and the people know their
strength. The popular spirit of independence
isa sure guaranty against oppress;on. But
multiply power in the hands of the rulers,
and they inevitably grow arrogant, while, in
thesame ratio, the people become submiss
ive and spiritless. They grow accustomed
to dependence and control. This disposition
is the very hot house of despotism, and thus
we may account for the fact that the most
despotic governments are those whichohave
the most universal power.
And thus, too, Communism really means
Despotism. In its mistaken zeal to relieve
the laborer from poverty it would plunge
him into slavery.
ET. THlRSAs'8 CHURCU. -LEast Thursday
morning, st the half past six o'olock Mass, St.
Theresa's Church presented a most beautifol
spectacle. The altars were chastely decor
ated and brilliantly illuminated, and the nave
of the edifioe was filled with the children
who were about to make their First Com
munion and the young ladies of the several
societies, all beautifully dressed in white.
Father Massardier concluded his oneronus
labors of preparing the children for the receg
tion of the Bread of Life, by delivering elo
quent addresses both before and after they had
received their FirsatCommunion. Thenumber
of first oommunicants was 167, all of whom
wereoonfirmed the sams evening by Hlis Grace,

month of the Sacred Heart.
A Protestant minister of Noew York wrote, a
few years ago, these beautiful lines, whihob
have the true ring of Catholio faith:
"Jesee on high ie unaltered from that He
was below. Jtill does He wear the form of the
servant. There is a man in the highest hee
oen. The same heart beats in His glorified
body. The same truly bhuman sympathy times
its throbe. The same eternal love Is its nn
changing law."
Cardinal Manning. in the "Glories of the
Saeed Heart," write, in the same train :
'At the right hand of God therp site the In
oarnate Son ; 0 clothed in our humanity for
ever. Bet she heart of Jesus is a h ert of
fesh-a symbol, indeed, beoause it beest symbol
isme and manifeete the eternal loveof God; but
it is more than this, it ib also a reality. And
that human heart of Jesus wees, in the hypoe
tatio union, united with the -eternal charity
and sanctity of God-all the ardor of the eter
at love is there, and all the fervor and all the
nderness of our humanity are there."
Here we have the meaning of this month
devoted to the honor, glory, praise and wor
ship of the Sacred Heart-that Heart which is
"the eternal Love of God clothed in the sym
pathies of our hbomanity," and whioh throbs
for each living soul with an infinite and on
obanging pity. Its desire-constant and on
faltering-is to transform the whole world
into Its own resemblance. '! Learn from Me
to be meek and humble of heart," is the lesson
taught for eightes hundred.years, and whihob
has built up in individuals, in families, in
peoples and in nations the grand Christianity
whioh we see pervading the world to-day.
The Catholic Churoh i tt agent established
bythis-Sacred- Heartto-narry outn l divine
plan of love and redemption. By Her means
'the outward life and the inward Heart of our I
Divipe Redeemer have become the pattern and
sw to men.'' She is the outpouling of the
lacred Heart, and from Her lips we learn the
wonderfol depths of His condescension, mercy,
ompaseion and tenderness.
She is constantly bearing .ttere glad tidings
o distant lands. No sooner does civilitstioh
pen a pathwe into aunknown plaeos, than I
,ae hastens to proolaim the meroies of the
sacred Heart, and every conquest She has won
as been by means of this ineffable mystery.
But knowing how prone the human mind is
.o forgetfulness and indifference, the Church 1
ike the thoughtful mother She is, sete a month
spart as especially dedicated to the knowledge I
snd service of the Sacored Heart. She has chosen
he ardent month of Jane, with its wealth of
lowers and its glorious sunshine, as best fitted
'or this devotion; baoanse it typifies the burn
ng love and unbounded wealth of that Sacred
eart which is ever yearning for the love of
[t creatures and which is ever pouring out
ipon them the fragrance of Its compassion and I
orgiveuees. And then She sets in the midst
>f the month, like a glorious jewel in a crown,
he Feast Itself of the Sacred Heart-a day I
when She bids all nature, animate and inani- I
nate, glorify the King of the universe; a day
when She brings the hearts omen close to the r
seart of their loving God, that Its charity, 1
purity, mneknese, holiness and divine oompas- I
sion may transform them into a resemblanoe
of Itself.
This then is the lesson of Jane-an Imita
Cation of the virtues of the Sacred Heart.
Sublime conception of the Church of God!
lender and beautiful planning of the Sacred
Beart above, to win the human hearts below !
ineffable goodness of the King of Heaven, to
secure the loyalty and happinessof the kings
af earth I
If we strive to acquire the true meaning of
this sublime lesson, so sa to put into practice
all its details of sweetness, lowliness, humili
ty, forgiveness of injuries, self-abnegation,
perfect resignation, eto, how soon the world
would become "the Kingdom of God," and the I
Apocalyptic Vision of St. John be realized in
all its glory and completeness.
Let Cardinal M'anning's words be the last
upon this subject, which appeals so lovingly
to the heartsof men:
"We know that friends who loveope another
become like to one another; they catch the
very tones of each other's voices; they ex
change the very look of each other's counten- I
acoe-features the most dissimilar acquire a
strange likeness in expression. So it is with
our souls, if we live' in the habit of prayer; I
that is, in conversing and of speaking with
our Divine Friend. When Stephen stood be.
fore the Council, his face shone like the face
of an angel. The light of the presence of his
Master in Heaven fell upon it. And they who I
live a life of prayer are being ever changed
into the likeness of their Divine Lord. I do I
not mean that theyare outwardly transformed;
I do not mean that there come rays out of
their hands or-their side, or that there is any a
resplendent light upon their countenances, but
I mean this, that there is a gentleness, a sweat
ness, a kindness, a lowliness, an attraction
about their life which makes everybody at a
peace with them. Everybody draws near to
them with a tranquil confidence and a rest of
heart. We know that with some people,
though they are good and just, yet when we I
approach them we have a sense of fear; but
where there is in any man a likeness to the
Bsored Heart of Jesus, there is an attraction '
which goes out from him. 0 * The world
oalls it fascination; but what the world calls I
fasoination is simply this, that in the measure
in whioh men have the likeness of the Sacred
Heart of Jesus, they draw others to them-.
The May Festivals in St. Stephen's Hall, Na
poleon avenue, for the benefit of St Stephen's
Churoh, are oontlnued with increased interest
and suncoese. The entertainments each night
have pleased exceedingly-even beyond all
expectation. To-night the Mitchel Rifles will
open with a Grand Military Tableau and give
representations of outpost duty by the Irish
Bkirmishers in the Donegal Moontains-the
irlsh soldier at the campbivouac-cooking
nd serving rations--attack and repulse of the
enemy-the prisoners--execution of a spy

On the 18th and 19th of May, a Fair was
