The mountain, divided into two peaks called Great and Little Ararat, forms an eliptioal mass of about twenty-five miles in length from northwest to a stbheose, and about half that width. Little Ararat is an elegant cone or pyramid, rising with steep, smooth, regular eides into a oamparatively sharp peak. Great Ararat is a huge, broad-shouldered mass, more like a dome than a cone. eonported by strong buttreses., and throwing out rough ribs or ridges of rook that stand out like knotty mue oles from its trunk. The latest mark which the hand of nature has set upon this mighty mountain was made in 1040, and the story is a pathetlo one. Near the month of the great chasm, with its crown of tremendous prel pinee, there formerly stood a pleasant little Armenian villageof 200 houses named Aghurri. The dwellers there were pastoral people like their forefathers, who led their fooke in the Alpine pastures and cultivated a few fields which were watered by the glaoier stream. They claimed that the vine whioh bore thee. delicious grapes was Father Noah's own, had that the anoient willow, the pride of the vil lage, had sprung from one of the planks of the ark The little monastery of St. Jacob had for eight hundred years stood just above the village, on the spot wher the legend had ap peared to the monk. With the exooption of the wandering Kurds, the inhabitants of Aghurri were the only dwellers on the mount ain; in their village ite traditions centered, and there they were faithfully preserved. Thus Mr. Brle relates the fate of the happy mount ain village: "Towards sunset in the evening of the 2Lat of Jane, 1840, the sadden shock of an earthquake, accompanied by asubterranean roar, and followed by a terrific blast of wind, threw down the houses of Agborri, and at the same time detaohed enormous masses of rook with their subjacent ioe from the oliffs that surround the ohesm. A shower of falling rocks overwhelmed in an instant the village, the monastery, and a Kurdish enoampment on the pastures above. Not a seaoul survived to tell the tale. Four days afterwards the mases of snow and ioe that had been preolpitated into the glen soddenly melted, and :forming an ir resistible torrent of water and mad, swept along the channel of the stream and down the outer slopes of the mountain, far away into the Aras plain, bearing with them huge blooks, and covering the ground for miles with a deep bed of mud and gravel. " " lSnce then a few huts have again arisen, some what lower down the slope than the site of old Aghurri; here dwell a few Tartars, and paest nre their cattle on the sides of the valley, whiobh a grass has again began to clothe. Bat Noah's u vine and the primeval willow and the little t monastery where Parrot lived so happily f among the few old monks who had retired to this ballowed soot from the troubles of the world, are gone fjrever; no Christian bell is heard, no Christian service said upon the d ounta in of theArk." BiUNDAYLAWS IN BCOTLAND. The Earl of Rosebery has recently taken the Presieldenoy of the Sunday Soolety, the aim of whichb is to secure the throwing open of the m e-urnme, libraries, art galleries and similar resurte, and to make the Sabbath of the Brit ish working-man something better than "dol ness varied with drink," as Lord Rosebery de. fBoe it. Whenever the witty young Earl crosees the Tweed into his sin countrie where, by the way, Glasgow still has a whole wilderness of crows to pick with him because of his irreverent speech about a dominie and a pig-he is likely toAnd his work out out for him. The Sabbath Alliance of Scotland has just bheld its annual meeting, whereat the Rev. Mr. Roberts read the report, which, after de ploring the runnlng of trains omnibuses and steamers on Sunday, "goes for" the Queen her self with a vigor worthy of John Knox. Among the speial incidentes" which during the year "oaused considerable anxiety and pain to many Christian people in Bootland as well as to the committee" is cited the following : "During the Queen's visit in September to Loch Maree she and the Princesse Beatrice, the Duhobess of Roxburg and other members of the suite were conveyed on the Sabbath across the Looh in a six-oared boat to the Isle of Maree, where a considerable time was spent. Inquiries being made as to whether the men employed in rowing the b)at were residenters or not, it was gratifying to the committee to be informed that the boatmen who usually ply on the Looh refused to go and that the hotsel keeper bad been obliged to employ his own ser vants. The, were informed at the same time that the worthy inn-keeper at Auohnaoteen bhad refused to send any of his machines or even to convey letters to Looeb Maree on the Lord's day." The Prince of Wales also comes in for a wigging, for that on the 13th of January, the same being the Sabbath, be did visit Hamil ton Palace. Poor Queen I Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown. If, being in the Highlands of a Sabbath, she invites the boat- 4 man of Loch Mares to row his bark to Maree's isle, straightway the residenter. though loyal and by no means averse to turning an honest penny, refuses to go, and Her Majesty is com pelled to depend upon a scratch crew of waiters from the inn, who thereby pat their own souls and her body in danger. If, on the 4 other hand. Her Majesty, being in the High lands of a Sabbath goes to the kirk, where let 1 us say the Reverend Mr. Roberts ministers, I straightway the rigid Anglican press of Eng- E land bitterly seaite her for the "diegusting" spectacle of the heed of the Church of England communicating in a Dissenters' chapel. E Whether she keep or break the 8ootoh Sab- c dath, the Queen is sure to catch it. "The worthy innkeeper at Anohnoateen," we fancy, c however, will not have oooasion to thank the committee for the puff given him in the re- t port. He chnnot advertise himself as "Worthy c Innkeeper to the Queen, the Prinoes Beatrice and the Duchess of Roxburgh," and the tray- t eller to the shores of Looh Mares, being a traveller, is likely to prefer putting up at an ion where boats can be bad and letters re oeived rather than to suffer saiotion for sa Sabbath. On the whole, as we ssid before, c we fanoy that the Earl of Rosebery will find o his work cut out for him whenever he extends I I his orusade i-to 8ootland. THEY FOUND OUT. The 8oottish Highlanders have long been famed for their rough and-ready, but shrewd, mother wit. The following, for instance, ia merely a common specimen of the natural logio of the Gael : Donald, brown as a berry, and newly from his native hills, was a passenger on board a certain steamboat plying between Aberdeen and Glasgow. Two smart alty-bred gents on deck thbought they would have a side-splitting laugh at the slmple monntaineer's expense. "Donald,' can you ount any 1" "Ooh, sy," replied the Highlandman. "She'll may be can sount oneor two." "Then bow many are here." asked the seoond swell, I mean myself, my friend-my self and you I"' The Gael seemed to consider deeply for some time, then slapping his knee in sudden glad ness, as if be bhad just solved some problem, he cried aloud "ehentlemene, there will be a honner I" "A hundred r' cried the laughter-convulsed fops ; "explain yourself." "Well," said Donald, thumping himself on the breast, "her nansel is one (1) and you two notblngs (00'e); is net t'st a banner f" (100) The erest-fallen ooxoomb retired to their eabla amidst the snaanded lagshter of the e Intredustion of the Irish Preesatatioa Nuns to Ut. lIhauel's Parochial behools, New York. [Tron Life, t., f .So maglo by Wimm Btch, D D. of rormoey ,oljeg I Father Donnelly formally introduooed the Noan to their new pupile in the obhuro. avaiI ing himself of that opportunity to tell the chbildren of the good fruitr which they might expect from the labors of their sealoose nit. tresses if they showed tbemselves diligent and dooile, as were the Irish obildren among whot the BSisters bad effected incalculable g wd. .The work of classifloation was then proceeded with, and was continued for three days, durlng which the none got a very fair idea of thbe literary attainments of their popils They seemed to bare, as a rule, a creat thirst for learning, and their conversation would at firat prodoe the impression that they were nicely eduoated; but a very elight examination :howed that their knowledge was extremely superfialal. Those who had been learning algebra and natural philosophy were found unequal to the addition of fractions. Children who had been a long time studying German and Frenhob were unable to write correctly from dictation simple sentencese in English. When the none remarked to one apparently intelligent girl how backward she was,m sobe replied, "Yes, indeed; my mother tells me the same. I have been goiolng for nine years to the publo schools. They taught me German before I knew Enlibsh, and lota of other things, of whiobh I know neither the head nor the tail." On the whole, the Sisters found that, while the cbildren had a superficial knowledge of many thbings, they knew nothing well, and that those In whose charge they bad hitherto been, had aimed rather at display than at solid instruction. A. to religious knowledge, they found their pupils little better than paganse. Though they liked the nuns, and treated them respeotfully, they showed a positive dislike to learninog the catechism, or even hearing the subject alluded to. Noumbers of grown girls had never been at confession, and had not the most remote idea how they sbould prepare for that duty, and the vast majarlty had never made their First Communion. Tee poor obil dren bead been trained in the publio Mchools, ip whioh, under the "godless" system, the name of the Redeemer is never mentioned, except, perhaps, to garnish an oath. STIRRING UP THE PEW HOLDERS St Louis Cathollo Western Watchman. The parish priest in these states has two P evils to complain of; he hbaa the pews to rent with no one to take them-* he has pews rented with no one to pay for them. Yet this revenue from pews is his only b stable support; all other sources of reve a one are casual and precarious. If some thing could be done to secure a competency F for our laboring clergy, the position of a priest would be more inviting. Want of organization, want of fixed and stringent e discipline, above all, want of liberality among our people result in a hand to mouth existence for the priest. People give little, and that little very seldom, and this little they give so seldom they give as a charity. Then there is no order or method of giving. Priests rent pews to people outside their parish and seldom en quire if they hold pews in their own church. In the case of marriages and baptisms matters are regulated more satis factorily, yet many abuses are found even I here. Bishop Rosecrans bas enacted a law in his diocese to remedy the evils of tardy, insufficient and refractory church support. He has published the following : All Catholics, no matter of what age they may be, provided they have any proper in come, permanent or transient, are bound to rent a pew or seat in their church. Failing to comply with this obligation they must be ex cluded from participation in the Sacraments. Except in the case of large cities he re quires that there shall be sufficient pews to accommodate all the congregation. This will necessitate the sub-division of large parishes, a thing greatly to be desired in every diocese in the land. Bishop McQuade, of Rochester, will not allow any church to be built by one of his priests in future with a seating capacity of over one thou sand; and he gives as his reason that one thousand souls are quite sufficient for the care of one man. It is urged against this law of Bishop Rosecrans that it is a stretch of episcopal prerogative. The Church says simply, "Support your -pastors," and hence the faithful are free to furnish this support at the time and in the manner they choose. This is not the case. Councils legislate for the whole Church and leave to synods and to bishops the enactment of such sub sidiary laws as will give to their legislation effect. The Bishop is a law-giver in his own diocese; and even in cases where he summons his clergy to his aid in synod, he is still the sole fountain of diocesan legis lation. The laws of a bishop in his own diocese are binding where they are not ] immoral and do not conflict with the gen eral laws of the Church. If Bishop Rose. crane finds that the people do not support their clergy, be not only has power to t inflict punishment, but he can make such enactments as will effectually prevent a relapse into the same abuse. When the gravity of the case warrants it, a bishop can support his laws with penalties, even to the extent of excommunicating the dis obedient. A correspondent further objects, that this law will bring money matters into the confessional to an alarming and scandalous extent, and give to the administration of the Sacraments a color of worldly busi ness. From time immemorial confessors have insisted that the payment of debts, or at least a promise to do so, shall pre cede absolution, yet there never has been much serious objection to the practice. We have no sympathy with those whose relig ions susceptibilities are so refined and ethereal that the jarring sound of the word money from the pulpit throws them into a swoon. There is at present too little boai ness in our religious affaire ; the result is we are a marvel to men tf business in the world. With obligations banging over us which we cannot meet, and necessities th clamoring for supply which we see daily is multiplying, in is folly to speak of the sen- n sitivenese of the people. It scandalizes the people to be always f harping on money. It also scandalizse peo- as ple for priesta not to pay their debts. If dý scandal must be given willy-nilly, then we prefer the scandal that gives us enough to eat and wear, to that which starves ns. Supporting one's clergy is a business trans action and should be made the people's business more than it is. THE CHURBCB IN FRACE. France is not yet ripe for a persecution of the Catholic Church. "We mentioned last week, says an exchange, the decrees issued by the mayors of several French towns, prohibiting Catholic processions outside the gates of churches. One of these dogberries is to be fosnd at Asserts, in th Y.s. desvtes.t. We t. 1id, to It; fnd that M Boneasel, the prefect of this department, has had the good sense to see the absurdity of the fiat in question, and * has consequently leaned an order super be seding the decree alluded to. Amnong the reasons for doing so we fled the following: " There sl no consistorial ohnrch at o Auzerre. but only a obapel. tn which a. about 150 people proferding the Protestant d creed meet. In pest years no trouble has w ever arisen from the outward ceremonies of it.a recognized Church, and none is to be ap d prehended for the future. The municipality o in leaning the prohibition seem to have been prompted rather by political motives r than by care for public order." All honor it to this courageous man, who will Mow have J to bear the venouonus aspersions of all the a infidels of France. We are happy to say 7 that in the large town of St. Etienne a proposeal to prohibit Catholic procesione was defeated in the municipal coonnil on the 28th nit. by a majority of 13 against 10, a sbowing that even in this mannfaetnriog district the faithful are not swamped by infidels. is, - __________ er MEDICAL ADVERTISEIENTS.
