ICcndensed from Assoclated Press Telegrams 1 FOREIGN ROMBa;-A London Times dispatch says that the Clerical party has announced its intention of partiolpating with the greatest energy in the elections which must follow the contemplated extension of franobhise. L'Italie says that the Council of State has decided that the See of Naples is in the royal patronage. and that the archbishop appointed by the Vatican cannot enjoy the temporalities of the See until he has obtained investiture and exequitur from the King. It s stated the Pope will make a direct ap peal to the Czar on behalf of Polish Catholics, and if the appeal be fruitless, will issue an en cyclical denouncing the conduct of Russia. GuRMANY.-A telegram from Berlin says: The attitude of the exiled German bisehops as indicated by their memorial to the P.-pe, ex pressing the wish that an equitable arrange ment may be reached with Germany, is regard ed in Berlin as gratifying earnest of a possible reconciliation. The Germania, however, says that It finds little in the negotiations between the Vatican and Germany, on a ich to rest hopes of peace for the Church. Swrrzat.AND.-The electionson the 12th for members of the Great Council of the Canton of Geneva have resulted in favor of the Demo cratiocCoeservative party. This insures the return of the dispossessed Catholic priests, the cessation of religions war, and eventual sepa ration of church and state, but does not insure the return of Bishop Mermillod, as he was ex pelled by the Swiss Federal Government. FaANc.-The Chamber of Deputies has an naulled the election of Mons de Bourgoing and the electoral committee has recommended the unseating of Fourtoo, late Minister of the In terior. The Exhibition was finally closed on the 11th inst. The receipts since the opening were I 12663,746 francs. EPAm.-Daring the trial of Moncasi, for shooting at the King, it was proved that the crime was premeditated since 1877. He had then intended to attempt it when the King visited Tarragona. The defonss attempted to show that Moncssi was insane or, at most, only attempted to irnllct bodily harm, nevertheless he was condemned to death. TunREY.-A Renter telegram from Constan tinople says Rossia is establishing a second line of defense at Adrianople. Several pronmi sent Turks, believing that the attitude of the Russians in Roumelia will lead to war with England and Turkey, are anxious to convince Minister Layard that the best mode of fighting Afghanistan would be to engage Russia in Eu rope. The Sunltan's immediate advisers en courage, however, a pacific course. Several Ministers, and especially tnue military party, favor a definite cession of a portion of Bosnia to Austria, so as to secure her neutrality in view of future contingencies. CARDINAL CULLEN's SUccEssoR.-A dis Patch from Rome to the London Standard dated November 13th, says that Right Rev. Mgr. McCabe, Bishop of Godara, and coadjutor to the lats Irish Cardinal, has been selected t3 souceed to the Arohbiahoprio and will probably be made Cardinal. Dr. McCabe has been for a long time associated with the Arch Diocese of Dublin, and is very popular with both priests and people. He first attracted attention when parish priest in St.Nicholas parish, situated in that part of Dublin known as "The Liberty," for his successful exertions t3 reclaim the rough element, which is very numerous in that neighborhood. He was thence transferred to the Important parish of Kingston, where he gained further distinction. A short time ago be was appointed Bishop of Godara and the appointment was received with satisfaction by all lasses. He has throughout his long Min istry carefolly abstained from iterfering in politics and was in marked contrast to the late Cardinal in many respects. His appointment will probably tend to bring to a close a long and bitter quarrel between the heads of the Catholic Courch in Ireland and the Irish Na tionalists. UNITED STATES. WASSINGrON.-It is currently reported that Zach Chandler, Don Cameron, and other ex treme Radicals are frequently in consultation with the President, with the view, it is said of securing his adhesion to the "Bloody Shirt" wing of the party. They hope to effect this now because Hayes is vexed with the Southern States for not having elected any Republican candidate to Congress. The members of the Cabinet at the meeting on the 15th, were ex tremely bitter and revived the old talk about outrages in the South. Gee. Ord, commanding the Department of exas, says : Trevino's pursuit of depredating exioan Indians will make it unnecessary for t to do so. These Indians, by their thieving ourse, have already depopulated some por tions of that country. The explorations, by soouting parties, of the mountain country west of the Pecos River have developed unex Pectedly well watered and quite extensive grazing lands, both plain and valley. Silver, lead, iron and copper districts have been dis covered and specimens of both silver and gold brught in. A map of the oonntry, which will live meet valuable information, is now in pre paration.

Some months ago a man named Grier was murdered beside his wife at Palestine by a band of Regulators. Afterward a man named Qaackenbnsh was ordered to leave, and did s). On the 8th of June less thirty men went to theI house of Steve Whits, colored, kidnapped his son William, whom they took to Winchester, where be was convicted of grand larceny and sentenced to one year in the penitentiary. He afterwards secured a new trial. At the esme time the elder White received notice from the Regulators to leave the country. Not heeding the notice, he was shot dead in his house by a large body of mounted men. The Grand Jury has found true bills against a dozen leading citizens as being implicated in the murder. Since the killing of White ten prominent citi zens have received orders from the Regulators to leave the county, under penalty of death. Mr. Putnam, colored lawyer of Palestine, re ceived snob notice, and fearing his life was in danger immediately left. At Z sesville, Ohio, at 4 o'clock, on the morning of the 14 th, a policeman on the bridge had his suspicious aroused by the movements of a party in a wagon, and when they raasoed the bridge ordered them to halt. The driver whipped his horses into a gallop and escaped. The policeman procured assistance and follow ed them fsorteen miles before he was able to catch up with them. Upon attempting to ar rest them, the whole party jumped from the wagon and escaped to the woods. The wagon was found to contain the bodies of four prom inent citizens who had been buried in Wood lawn Cemetery since Monday. MISCELLANEOUS. Mrs. A. T.

LETTER FROM PLA&QBEINE. PLAQLUEMINE, November 8, 187' Editor Morning Star: The fever here has declined very rapidly owing t, the cold weather and the lack of material. Oa All Saints day besides masses and vespers as on Sundays, there was a large procession frem the Church to the graveyard, where Father Harnais delivered a touching sermon on Purgatory, after which he blessed the graves. Then the people scattered through the cemetery and here and there groups gathered around the graves of loved one,. The number of new graves tells the story of our entfl'rings during the past season. The work of repairing our church has began. The walls will be raised and a new roof put on in a etyle to add much to the building. The planters all around tho parish are making sugar. The cane seems to be doing well. and the plsanteis are highly elated over the prospects. The weather bids fair to do well, although if a little colder it would not hurt. Business is beginning to revive and the people are trying in a measure to catch up for what has been lost this summer. PELICAN JR. Inducements Ofered to Attend Protestant Churches. N. Y.Snn. The iovitations and inducements held out nowadays to New York and Brooklyn churoh goers are worth noting. "All cordially invited," " strangers made welcome," " seats free," ' 500 young men wanted for these services," "come everybody," "coma early," "attentive ushers," "free permanent pews assigned," "hymn books for all." "no collection," " public promptly seated," and "a fifteen minutes sermon," were among the seductive hints conveyed in yester day's notices. At Willet Street Methodist Church the sermon was "illustrated by beauti fol paintings;" at St. John's there was an illus trated sermon; as also at Pacific Stre t, Brook lyn, and elsewhere. At the Church of the Holy Spirit "music of the highest order was guaranteed; at the Union Gospel Services, "singing by Carlos Florentine;" and at various places were promised either individual cele brities, like "Mrs. Wilson, sister of the late P. P. Bliss," and "Mr. Miltaner, cornetist," or else, more generally, "choice music," and "rare musical talent engaged." Other attractive adjouncts were " an interesting temperance lady," " Hogan, the reformed gambler," " the sifted evangelist, Jane Benson ;' while a Brooklyn church secured "four theological stadents from Drew Seminary," to be "present eatthe day and conduct the serviees ST.

To aid us with their pray'r,e No name shines brighter than thine own No name to us appears More dear. in all our Holy Faith, h bhn thine sweet Saint Elizabeth ! iI. From earliest infanchery, life Was fraught with marvels groat; And many wondrous miracles Her name illuminate; Eut she, of all these wonders, still Remains the greatest mirasle, Though mistress of a royal realm, With subjects far and wide To press around her ducal throne, And claim her to their side, Her heart disdained the glitt'ring show, And turned to homes of want and wos. Ill. Like a bright sunbeam passed her form Down ev'ry rugged road That led to starving households, where Chi'l Penury abode. She came, and at her joyous tread Disease and Want and Hunger ield. She came to raise the fallen sount, To shield the weak from harm, To pour into the anguished heart Religion's holy balm ; To whisper in the dying ear The glarles of a happier sphere. IV A face, a form more 1.v. ly far Than poet e'er hath dreamed. Or e'er upon the 'raptured sight Of mu-iog artist gleamed; So fair, so bright, so sweet was she, The darling Saint of Hungary The sunny splendor of her hair Fell rippling past her neck, A nd sled a golden glory o'er The soft blornm of her cheek, Where roses bloamed, ns fair as those A miracle did once disclose Beneath her mantle, wlch before Had hid but alms gifts t ' the poor ! Eyes, whose soft blue glowed like the skies After bright morning showers: Eyes, that the violet might have claim'd As beauteous sistert-lowers, Such a divine and tender grace Beamed from their azure loveliness ; TYt holier far than rialet flower Or tiLts of azure sky, Were those pure eyes whose yearning depths Were ever turnet on high Fix'd ever on that Heavenly goal hwest winlows of a sweeter soul. V . The very air that waved abhve Her pure and holy brow Seemed instinct with adoring lore, As though it well knew how Abundantly Ocd's precious grace Her favor'd spirit did embrace, So soft, so bright it played about Her gently-tloating hair, It seemced to quiver into life And wreathe a halo there: Around her brow it faintly shone, The semblance f a Hear 'nly crown. On Mercy's errands, far and near, Where'er her footsteps stole, Still, still about her form there waved That mystic aureole ! And all who saw the wondrous sight Rever d her as an angel bright, Whese upward flight, whose soaring soul To larth were bounded still, God's holy purpose to comp'ete, Her mission to fulfill. And ever through their minds perplexed Stole thoughts of that mysterious text Of those who, as the Word declares, Entertain sngels anawars ! Death, that dissolved her mortal frm, Could not destroy her tame; The loveliest legions cluster round Her dear and cherished name, Unfolding to the heart of fallh, How blest was sweet Elizabeth ; Like rays around a brilliant suann, They cluster round her life,. And shed a pure and hallowed light On all her deeds. as wife, As m:stres , mother and as queen- Perfect alike in every cerne. And still her gentle spirit lives In ev'ry kindly deed That d;es with holy charity To aid another's need, And to thebemse of Miserty Still from her cwatch wilthn the skies She bonds Fer loving gaze Cn those who, follon ing in hr steps, Seek out the darksome ways That lead to homes where Want and Care Have d'iv'n thebr victims to deespir.

Long may thy sain'etl menory b). To every clime and age. Wherever beats the Catholic heart. A priceless heritage - A t-e.,sure that to larth is given To guid' the yearning soul to Heaven I "The Sort of Wife a Man Should Seek " Now that the epidemic 's over, we can think of no sobjeot more ngreeable to a large class of our readers than the one indicated above, and which we find thus treated in Father O'R.illy's new volume on TUE I MEN AS WE NEED THKEM: "It is the dearest interest of every young man seeking a companion, who is to be the sue of his life, the honor and treasure of his home that he should find the best, the purest, the most worthy in every way of the devotion of whole lifetime, and that, having found her, he should not only keep her pure, stainless, and worthy of all love and honor, but thbat every day of his life he should labor to make her more so, and be himself before her eyes the living and ever present oopy of Christ's good ness and devotion." "Be it your first and chief care to seek the beautiful soul much more than tie beautiful body. There are comely and attractive women, who resemble exquisite vases of rich material and most classic firm, but filled with a poison one or loathsome liqnon: woe to the imprudent man who should teats of the fo.l contents ! The beautiful soul is a treasure beyond all price, placed sometimes in a homely vessel of unrefined material or rude workmanship, buot whose value is altogether independent of either form or material. It Is toe most ex quisite of pefomes given forth by the least brilliant of flowers; the water of life, of delight, and immortality, often gushing forth from a spring in some obecord or barren vale, or as often placed by the hand of the Creator in the lowliest and homeliest of vessels." "Young men wno are themselves pore of heart will surely be directed by the secret and irresistible charm of true goodness towards a maidenly heart worthy of tneir affections.' "This is tbhe one supremely precious quality which a young man must find in the compsnilon he would choose for life. There can be no love without it. For love is founded on esteem, and esteem can only rest on the certainty of innocence in the beloved object. One cannot love what one does not respect; but how can a yonug and pure heart respect a woman though divinely fair, from whom the oharm, the freshness, the fragrance of purity have de parted-like a beautiful tflwer rifled of its sweets and containing only the putrid corpses of the insects that have preyed upon itl" "Be slow, therefore, in judging for yourself, even whore, with the chasm of personal beauty, you have found in a girl tVe outward signs of maidenly modesty. There is Oue who reads the heart and who will sourely guide you in your choice, if you are only careful to oon suit his pleasure, much m ire than the ino.i natlon begotten by a fair face, a graceful per son, and a moodest bearing. It is all-important to you that you should be mabstr of your own soul at this juncture, when a hasty choice might be a wrong choice, and when a wrong choice would make sh!ipwreck of your whole future life. Lift up your soul to Him who is bound not to fail those who seek liia light and strength in a choice so momentous.' "There are other qualities beside maidenly innocence, even when it embellishes the high est beauty of form. We would say to you whether you be a prince or a peasant, the wealthiest of men or the poorest, depending only on your stout heart and strong arms, Let the woman you would make your wife: come from a irell regulated Ihome. where thte woman ly rirtues are carefully cHllirated. Suoh homes are to be found in every class of Society." "Taeogh you feel drawn towards a maiden by the twofold attraction of beauty and appar ent modesty and innocenoe, show not your in terest, give not your heart away, till you know more. Watch how she bears herself under the trials of home life; what respect she shows for her parents, what sympathy toward the suf fering; make sure that she is unselfish in all her conduct toward others, and espeeially in her sisterly devotion toward her younger brothers and sisters." "She who is ever mindful of the wants, the comforts, and happiness of others, and forget ful only of herself, who manifests that moth erly devotion toward the younger members of the household, and tendernese toward every form of suffering, will be sure to bring to your home the same wifely and motherly qualities. She will make the happiness of your life." "To learn what she really is, be not content with an acquaintance formed in the ball-room, or amid the crowd and glitter of a watering plaoe. Study her in her nome life. You need a wife who is to be your life long companolon, your m st constant and trusted friend, your wisest and mrs'a disinterested oounoselor, the dear sharer of all your boliest Joys: the mother mmAdW !A ,-1A. ts enlightened and solid piety, to bring the reli gion of your father's home to their minds and their hearts ; who will not be satisfied with teaching them the great truths of revelation, but show them these truths practiced and made lovely by her own daily life; the prudent gov ernor of your household, careful of every detail of domestio economy. knowing bow to make her servants obey and work by love, charitable toward t'e poor. hospitable toward all, lovely and venerable in the eyes of your friends, your relatives and acqnaintanoe " AfMor alluding to the indispensability of uon varying truthfulness, and a fair amount of common sound asnse, the Reverend author con c'udes : "Such, then, are the womeu who are alone worthy of a true man's love. They are the true women. S',ould Providence guide you t3 t ie presession of such, thou are you most bless ed. Your parents can give you education, position, wealth, an honored name and home; society may bestow honor and trust; but far above all that porents ran bequeath and so ciety can confer of what isconducivo to happi noes and honor, is a true woman, given to a man's heart by Him who knows tlse heart's needs, and wherein consist the felicity of a man's household and the glory of his life." .AMEdICAN 6SUFFERINGS AND IRISHL G; RATITUDE. London Universe. a We are pleased to learn that a collection has a commenced in Ireland, (chiefly we believe, as I vet, amongst the members of the Society of St. f Vincent de Paul) for the purpose of helping r those who have been made widows and orphans by the terrible ravages of the yellow fever in different parts of the United States of Amerioa. This is right, and we most sincerely hope that i the reeling will spread and will produce I abundant trait. Never can any Irishman, worthy of that truly Catholic, and truly honorable name, forget how nobly America acted towards Ira land in 1847. Famine and f ever desolated the "Green Isle" and hundreds of thousands of her I hapless inhabitants were hurried prematurely to their grar ce. The English Government did not (or would not) see the terrible extent of the misfortune which had fallen upon Ireland and refused to accede t U Lord George Ben tinck's proposal to vote ax:xten millions for works which would have given remunerative and useful trtployment. O'Connell begged of the Whies to aid Ireland, and was seconded by Mr. Disraeli (now Lord Beaconsfield ) but they preferred half measures, and Ireland deeply suffered by their unfortunate policy. At, th.it moment America su'pped in and, list ening to no pbny plea of a false "political economy," sent her men-of-war across the At lantic tilled with food and clothes to seasist suffering Ireland. The Jamestown idated into Cork Ilarbtor laden with help fir those who sanlered from cold and hangir. St arving Ire F land felt the fall force of American generosity. It is now Ireland's turn, and it Is good to see that she feels her duty and is beginning to not op to it. The Freeman's J.urnal in a kind ly and humane article points out that no time ought to be lost by Ireland in helping the be reaved ones in America. Tnis lappeal uas been met with a response which will prove that even though Ireland may not be a wealthy country, sue is rnoh in one thing, and that is the noble quiality of gratitude. She fee:s, with the poet, that He that' ungrateful bath r.o other fan't, All oter faults may pass for rrtuoi in him. It is a happy thing when one nation Is thus linked with another by rivalry in doing good, and when it is shown that, though a wide ocean may separate one from another, they can "shake hands" across i:s vst expanse and feel like brothers. The fo:lowing letter was received by Arch bishop M'Gettigan from Cardinal Manning on the occasion of Cardinal Collen's death : "WIsTMI.~STrR, OCT. `i7, 1-:. "MJy Dear Lord Primate-Yonr Grace will greatly oblige me if, when the Bleshos of Ire land are assembled on Tuesday next to fulfil theli last cflloes of veneration and of affection around the bier of the great Pastor and Prince of the Church whom we have lost, you would convey to them this expression of my heartfelt sympathy. He has left behind him, both in Ireland and at the Holy See, a memory which will never be forgotten. "It is not for me to say what the episcopate of the late Cardinal Archbishop of Doblin has done for Ireland. Looking at it from England, it seems to me to have been marked with a force and a wisdom seldom united, and still more rarely in se high adegree. There are few Sees in the Catholic Church in which greater prudence and greater constancy are required ; and in both he was always equal to toe difll oult and trying emergencies of his high office. The public voice of Eugland has borne a strong testimony to his personal and ( l:ial chsrab ter. "As a private friend of many years he is to me a pets inal los. which I sensibly feel. Let me also ask your Grace t o convey to tie I:s1h ops of Ireland my allectionate respect .-ha lieve me, always, my dear LJid Primate, your affectionate servant in Jeans Christ, ' l IIs.

It was a mournful exclamation of Dean Swift as he looked upon a noble tree, whoea top, struck by lightning, had withered, decayed and was dead, "I. too, shall die first a top; . and, after many years of bodily and mental suffering, this great wit and satirist died as he had predicted, "in a rage, like a poisoned rat in a hole." There was, possibly, some heredi tary taint in him through which he caught a glimpse of this dreadful end. Bat dying at the top is a great malady which (s stealthily making its way inta the whole machinery of American life. In the high-wrought state of our oiviliz.tion there is no occupation, profee sional or business, which is not carried on un der a mighty and exhantting preesure which is sadly telling upon the faeulties of our people. The prof.-esions are fall of men overworked, and with half their vital energy gone, at a time of life when the whole powers of their being abonld be only folly developed, and in priatine strength and vigor. In every sphere of labor, from the highest to the lowest, and on every hand, we see men whose time and strength are completely exhausted in the daily endeavor to get a living for themsalves and families. Especially in cities like onra, where the com petitive forces are such that only intense and continuous labor can stand a chance of sncces, the strain of special faculties in the direction of special work is t, o great to be borne even by men of iron frame and nerves of steel. The results are paralysis, mental infirmity, and early death. The few who survive above three score, survive to an uge of decrepitude and on happiness. Theover-werked lawyer acts as it he were wild over his own thoughts. The critical and never-ending work of the editor leaves so little vigor in his body, that the few moments be take eto himself furnish but meagreenjoyment. The merchant cannot leave his counting-room, and leave there, also, hie business. It is con tinually on his mind, even when surrounded by those domestic pleasunres wbich ought to bar thought of else but home and fireside comforts. The speculator on 'Change looks haggard and fretful. The whole line is wearing out with never cessing activity. I)Dan Stan ley compared, a few days ago, the restlessnese of the American people, derived from his present to,ur of observa tion in this country, to the continuoous fretting and whirl of Niagara. We are fast destroJ ing ourselves, and something must be done to check it. Dame Nature is indulgent for a time, but rigid in her exactions after a s-mon. She may postpone fir a while the debt we are piling up against ourselves by t iis too great baste, but she only postpones, and will eventually ex act every part to be paid with interest. We can point out a cause for all tlbi and a remedy. The caneelies in this fact-t tat every one is trying to viewith his neighbor in luxury. The maij rlty are living beyond their means. The extravagance of our life compels excesr in the strife to sustain it.
