Midnight. roLbete-masked burglats havefrt naently appeared to disturb the slnm era, especially of those having money or keys :o bank vaults in their posseseion. Bit it is not in beds alone that people are no longer safe. Even in their graves they are not permitted to sleep undisturbt d. In the dis seating room of one of the Western medical colleges the corpeo of a grandson of a former President of the United States was found hang ing by the neck, awaiting the knife of the dis secting surgeon. ItIdy enatohing lha become so common in Ohio that there does not appear tobe in at ratgreat State a nook or corner where a person can be securely buried. In the neighborlrg State of Connecticut the work of horror has progressed a step further. A woman-}es, a womar-having ascertained that Yale College furnished a markent'for eob. jeots at the tmotnerative price of $:., apiece, proceeded to supply hereolt by obhloroforming a friend in that way savilng hetsalf the trouble of exhuming the body of some one who had died a natural death i Yesterday morning this city was shocked by the announcement that the tomb of the ltsl Mr. Alexander T. Stewart had been forced open and his body removed from the casket contain ing it, carried away and concealed. Thesnpposed purpose-supposed because no other can be coouceived of-is tI extort motey for the rat s )m of the remains. _ This crime presents bahumanity in its moit do. praved aspec'. The very thought of it et to the last degree revolting. If the prepetrators of the unnatural deed were discovered, even in this law-abiding community, it would re qluire all the conservative inlluenoa of the authori:ioa to protect them from the fury of the populace. Toete mnu,t be something tadically wrong in the e)s'en tof oitulinal la-e, or in its adminis tratiou, where such an i flti-ac is liabhl to be committed without certain and swift detection and pronm t and exewup!ury punibhment. 17o common crimes are encouraged by the comps rative ulmounity with which coomon crimes are committed. T.:e morning journals of yes terday contained a letail( d etount of a "des perate enconnter" of police ta macts with "two well-known buorglars," in which several pi t 1l shoto were rirel. The character of these two desperadoes was oo well understood that when they wore observed ,prowliug sat imt a watch wase set upon them, and they w'er soon seen emerging fron asetore which they had entered with false ke sa carrying withthens a bag con tiniuig two hundred dtl;la-s' worth of stolen properry. 'Cbe j ,,:rnals of the same morting contained anothtur art.in o entitled "A Notorious Burglar Pardone.l," inoid giving an acoount of toe Iar don of a 'notorious batnk burglar' by the Gov ernor of O)ao. Unfult ouat ly neither of these artioles is of an unusual character. They are both of a kind to be found in almost every issue of a daily journal. Now, we ask, in all seriousness, why should "well.known ourglarn" be permolt d to prowl about New York t Why, when a man Is proven to have deliberately chosen a criminal career -to have made bourglary, for insetanoo, his oo Oupation--why shon!d he not, upon a second conviction, be, imprisoned for lanfe Such a man is not et titled to be turned loose to prey upon the community whose willful enemy he has became. And why should notoriocs burglars be par doned f A s ardon is only a mistaken kindness to them, and it is an inexcusable wrong to the public. Better that moany more atrocious criminals should be tilt rg hard and useful labor in our 8tate priason than that hpoest citizens should ;ot be petrittied to sleep securely either in beir beds or in itheir graves. A deep etlt would rent upon the police tould cuch a crime as this rol bery of Mr. ;tewnrt'n grave nc ape steedy dt teotioin. It is not witthiut eroction that wecomment on this plainful ocorrence. As we recall the kind, coutteooa, and genctle nanners of the deceaseed, bhis cordial aud almost atfectionate greeting, and his many amiable qualities, we experience, as all nonet who knew him, a feel ing of horror and resenltment that his lifeless remainsln htiold have been subjected to this Lendish indognt y.

At a recent meeting the priests of this diocese formed !:e resolution of establishiing an Ec. clesiastioal historical Society. Tre name serflcieintly indicates the nature and scope of the In ,vement. The pioneers of reli.ion in the West are fait passing away ard with them a wealth of interesting, edifying and most val. iable lical and personal history. Already the second generation cf the clergy have entered upon ite field broken, and first tilled by tl.eir fore-runners in the work of church eon:qest. The-irat beginnings of religion in t te West are surrounded by so much that in heroic, self-secrildoing, fascinating and even romantic that it were acrime not to proserve the annals. The history of those primitive times is growing in interest as the link binding nos with the glorious past is on the point of breaking and the bchain dropping into the depths of irre coverable oblivion. The perishable and fast perishing materials out of which the future historian of the American Church will con struct his narrative are still in the possession of a few aged and venerable priests, and un less given to the keeping of the lettered page they will go down with them into the tomb from which no voice, no prayer, no enchant ment may ever again call them forth. It is the misfortune of every Catholic country in the world that the history of the first plant ing of the faith is surrounded by obscurity, the twilight of fable blending i's shadows with the first lights of the Gospel dawn. In France, England, Ireland, Germany, Spain and even Russia we have little that is reliable and satisfactory about ti e first preaching of Chris tianity within their borders, and even In Italy, Spain, and thecountries of the East the legend furnishes nearly all we know of primitive and apcatolio times. IHow little do we know of the Apostles themselves f Of mo.o than one half of that glorious company we may say they jived, labored and died; but where they lived, what they did and when and where they died we know almost nothina. Dad Thaddens vreach the gospel in Egypt and Arabia ? Did St. Philip preach and qie in Armenia I Did St. Thomas bring the word of life into India ? Did James ever land in Spalnf Did Bartholomew or Nathaniel preach in Per sia ? Legends are plentiful and warrant be lief, but history Is silent on all these things. What of Andrew. of Mathias. of Matt' ew, of Simon of Cana, ofJ ames the Loss. not to speak of the seventy-twudisciples? Whet. would we give to know the hirtory of their labors, tri umphs and stlferings t There were few Lukes in the rs days, and the "Acts of the Apostles" is therefore asnall work. The Ecoleirsical Hlistorical Socioty of 6t. Louis has been es tablished for the purpose of collecting and preserving the materials for a very large book, the acts of the Apt( 'lese of the A rerican church in the We st.

The Liberte of Frribur gives an aceoot,t of a remarkable setr io of facts that have orccrred in connec'i .n with the atti.mptcd celebration of the Volt Tire Centenary at Ferney,or Fernex, a small town otf tI e ])DepartmenrofAin, Fra co, near Geneva, and once the residence of the celebrated enemy of religion. Certain persons at Ferney re solved to unite t'.eir town with Paris in doirg bonor to the memory of Vol taire, and for this purpose it was proposed to erect his stat Le by subscription over the pub lic fountain it theu mddleof tbetown. Agen t eran, w hire n ame is suppressed out of con a'duretion to th,, surviving members of his tainiln, u ndertru.k to raise the necessary con trihntlo e, atr.d iare an appeal to the inhabit ants h.r tit t prpose, but he was cut cf' by Peddtlein pt ti biforr t:e bad well commenced Lie unit nly wirk. Another tu.k his place, and a few days af iet wards this man al].o was carried to the ceme tery a corpse. Thu two deaths made a deep impression on the people, and it seemed as if the project or the statue would be abandoned. However, a ein rf the proprietor of the chat ean formerly ow;ned and inhabited by Voltaire took up tie etterpr t ; the collection was made, and the statue was ordered of the sculp tor ; bat before it cou!d be erected the young nian too was esmitten down. It will easily be believed that these three deatt's created con siderable s-ensation in the locality; and yet there were to be more victims. M. David, the proprietor of the obatuan, and father of the last deerased, determined to erect the statue. lie was earnrtly warned of the danger he was incurring, but he was deaf to all remun strsrancesa. The stihtut wais erected on its destined site; a fete was planned for its inatgnruaiou and M. David took the lead in it. Tl'usequel was appalling : the mant who walked at rbe head of the pirocosnor tell down dead sr'ddernly a few dat aftertartrs ; and, lastly, M David himself was bo ne t ' Itis grave on October 31. The corn sp.ordent of the Lil. rte remarks here upon :-"In all five deaths I" 1 draw no con olusion. Let the reader, if he please, make of this terrible si quence nothing more than a fortuitous coinctlence. Sonme, I am sure, will see in it the itnger of God." Notwithstanding the liberal pension which awai:s their retirement, Judges in Great Bri tain are apt to continue in harness very often far into tte eighties, deeply .to the exas peration of thise. who are eager for their shoes. Sometimes this is done to secure the patronage of the a tti.e to the political party with which the Judge is in sympathy. Tbus he won't resign till his friends come into power, sometimes t1 spite the Government which won't give him the peerage to which he aspires. Thus Lord Nos bury positively refus ed to budge for anything under an earldom, and it is very well known that a barony would soon bring in the resignation of Chief Baron Kelly, who is ,d. It is related of the lateChief Baron Pollock, that one who wished him to re sign waited on him, and hinted it, extirely wtth a view to the prolongation of his valued ife, etc. The old man arose, and said, with grim, dry gravity, "Will you dance with me?" he guest stood aghast as :the Lord Chief Baron, who prided himself particularly upon his legs, began to caper about with a certain youthful vivacity. Seeing his visitor stagger ed, he capered il tii, him, and said, "Well, if yon won't dl~ace with me, will you box with me?" uuni with that he eqtared np to him, and, half in jest, half in earnest, fairly boxed him out of the room.

A correspondent of the Derry Journal, writing on tie 14th nlt., says: On Mordav, 14-lh Octorder, the mortal remains of Michael Heraeghty. who had been accused of the rourder of Lord Lei trim, and whose death took place in the L'fiord jail on the Saturday morning pre vious, were convoyed to Massmount graveyard, accompanied by one of the largest and most respectable funeral pro. cessions ever witnessed in this part of the country within the memory of the oldest inhabitant." Sunday being the day pre vious to that on which the funeral proces sion was to be held, ample notice was afforded to the parishioners by the respected parish priest, Rev. Father O'Boyle, and his highly-esteemed curate, Rev. Father O'Flagberty, both of whom addressed their respective congregations in suitable and appropriate terms, im pressing upon them the advisability of testifying their undying love and gratitude for their deceased friend. Nor was their appeal, as might be expected, unsuccessful. From an early hour in the morning the most casual observer could not fail to per ceive that something unusual was about to take place-business was wholly neglected and the engrossing topic of conversation b.-came linked with the intended proces sion, its probable success and other innu merable et ceteras connected therewith. The morning appeared dark and lowering, a zone of gloomy clouds encircling the mountain tope, whiset a sonther;y wind blew in fitful gnausts, which had a despond ing influence on many ,f the intending processionists. But their feats were soon to be dispelled. By ten o'clock these indications of a storm had completely vanished, and from this time the day became all that could be desired. Tile processionists now beg.rn to assenmle, the main body starting from Kindrum, in marching order, two men ahreaser, accm panied by Rev. Father O'Flagherty. At Tamrey they were juoined by the parieh priest, Father O'Boyle, with a large con tingent. They now proceeded to meet the hearse on its way from Lifford, having halted for a little while in Rosnakill, in order that those who had not procured the necessary quantity of green ribbon might be supplied. The numbers forming the procession rapidly increased as it moved along, new groups joining them at inter vale. At Kerrykcel, especially, the num ber awaiting was very considerable. It was expected that the procession should have at least proceeded as far as Milford to meet the hearse ; but, unfortunately, it i (the hearse) had reached this place half an hour earlier than was expected, in conse quence of which it was met by the procees sionists something over a mile outside of I the town. It may, too, be mentioned that a large number of people from the parish I of Rosguill had gone also to meet the I corpse, but that in mistake they went in I the direction of "Moyle Hill," instead of t Kilmacronan, and were thus disappointed t Nothing could be more beautiful or more i imposing than the spectacle presented by the procession on its way homewards. The I following is the order:-First came the I hearse in solemn sable which contrasted rather strangely with the remaining part I of the funeral cortege; next the cars con- i taining the relations of the deceased, the c parish priest and curate donned with the t scarfs used on such occasions, and display- I ing green ribbons on their hats-Father c O'Flagherty's ritbbotrtFeinrgf-of great-beauty e and lestre was admired by all. The respectable and well-to do farmers who i had brought their cars on this occasion c followed. Next in order came the young c girls (some four hundred) gaily dressed in t their holiday attire, and exhibiting no t lack of ribbons of the national color. The c young men came next, two abreast, every t one of whlse hate was encircled by a green 1 ribbon or other national device. Mr. t Coyle, of Lurgacloblan, wore a beautiful I sash, which was much admired, embroi dered in green and gold, on which was a representation of St. Patrick, the round I towers, etc., and bhearing the motto, "God 1 Save Ireland." Tire men on horseback I brought up the rear. Numerous spectators were lined along the entire route, all of whom, to judge by their demeanor, seemed c to express a tacit admiration of the view t -presented. In fact, there could be no other i feeling expressed; and he must have been I dull indeed who would not feel a glow of a pride and enthusiasm in contemplating the I scene-where youth, strength and vigor, patriotism and friendship were alike dis played. The procession extended nearly three quarters of a mile; and, judging by the closeness to each other in which they moved-sometimes four be ing abreast instead of two-there must have been considerable over two thousand people present. On nearing Rosenakill, a large green flag was seen to wave from one of Mr. Martin's buildings; an arrangement which seems to have given general satisfaction. The procession at last reached its destination, and the fu neral obsequies being completed, the respected parish priest exhorted his parishioners to conduct themselves in their homeward course in a manner becom - ing the solemnity of the occasion-and I am happy to say that they acted according ly. I hope it will not be considered ,nala propos to mention, that were the redoubt able Valentine M'Clntclhyg-as pourtrayed by Carleton-in exietence, he would have been delighted to find that his pet scheme, "thle spy a stem," weas on this occasion put inter execrtzotou. EverJyone wasee ensurprised rod;gs .ntl 'nr:rui~ed-to find members of the -,ont.buhlary frce having recourse to suct sialy r tlrltrfuges as to be found pry ing obout in plain clothes, when their ob ject and designs are to the community clear as noonday. I do not wish to say anything disrespecttul to the polle force in general, among whom are to be found some of most excellent character; but I do think that they (or their superiors, or whoever be re sponesible for it) might have saved them selves the trouble, and others the annoy ance, of such an unnecessary and anncalled for interference. A correspondent of the Derry Stlrndard writes: Michael tIeraghty, one of thie prisoners charged with the Leitriru murder, was buried by his friends on Monday at Mass mount. His death was announced on the pr vious Sunday in Fanad by the Rev. J. O'Blloyle, PI'. P., and the Rev. G. O'Fiaherty, C. C., together with the intimation that his remaIns were to be buried on the following day. Accordingly a large number of the ae*ionw h a ee La *e!* gba s innocence resolved to pay a last tribute of respect to one who appears to have borne a good name in Fanad, where he has been known from his infancy. From Fanad, north and west a large number of friends assembled on Mlonday morning at Kin drum, while those from other districts met at Tamney. The Kindrum contingent proceeded towards Tamney. under the superintendence of the Rev. Father O'Flaherty, C. C., joining the other part of the cortele under the Rev. Father O'Boyle, P. P. Half way between Kerry keel and Milford, at a place known as "'TheHfswk's Nest," they met the hearse containing the prisoner's remains. When the cortege left -'The Hawk's Nest" in the direction of Massmount the mourners numbered about 3,000, stretching over neai!y three miles on the road. Some twenty cars followed the hearse, and in the rear were about 200 horses. The turn out was one of the largest of the kind ever witnessed in the district, and it was noticeable that the great majority of the mourners wore green rosettes. A large number of females took part in the proces sion. A NOTABLE CHANGE IN IRISH POLITICS. Boston Polt, tNovember 2. It has been evident for some time past that a new step in the Home Role move ment must be taken. The course of Mr. Butt and his immediate followers in sup porting the Ministry on certain measures caused widespread dissatisfaction. The step that was inevitable has come, and a special cable despatch tells what it is. After a three day's Conference in Dublin, the more active and aggressive members of the Home Rule organization, including Mr. Parnell, O'Connor Power, and other "Ob structionists," have declared in favor of an energetic policy. The Conference is said to have been attended by delegates from all parts of Ireland. Mr. Butt, how ever, was absent. The report at hand states that sixteen Irish members have given - adhesion to the new programme. Arrangements were made at the Conference to contest all the seats now occupied by H-ome Rulers who oppose She policy of obstruction. In other words, it is agreed to make an open issue with Mr. Butt before the people. This, though a bold step, has not been u taken in haste. Eventshavegradually led ip to it, and the final act does not find the = country unprepared. Saould the public in lorse it by electing men pledged to support the Parnell policy, the Irish question will soon be a prominent one in Parliament. A relegation of fifty members is counted on. r hcseo are to demand Home Rule, and co- I )perate in blocking the House of Commons until the demand is granted or they are ex elled. Thies looks like downright earnest iess, at all events, and if adhered to it may iroduce good results. Below we publish a proposition to Mr. Parnell from the leaders of the advanced I rish Nationaliste in America., cabled from t .ew York to Dublin last week. Should his be accepted by the Home Rule mem rers and the organized bodies in Ireland, it ° a a most important action which will at once place the Irish cause on a worldwide ooting. It will give the entire organized ° orce of the Irish people a formal mouth- i iece in the British Parliament, and will nore than ever attract the attention of the i world. Even should this offer not be ac- A epted, it is a healthy sign, for it will lead c o an interchange of views between the ° :rish radicals and conservatives, which will t ertainly open the way to an eventual t igreement. e The progress of the new movement will t ie watched ino this country with keen inter- r at. Mr. Butt's second-thought policy of i onciliation has not produced the effect hat was promised. His abandonment of he original spirit of Home Rule disappoint Ad many of the most upright and earnest o nen in Ireland We regret that his course ass led to division, but we do not regard ( he division as dissension. One leader may be displaced by another without weakening the cause. Should the Irish people declate that the time has come for Jr. Butt to stand aside, we do not doubt hat events will prove their judgment ccr *ect. The following is a copyl of a despatch abled to Dabliu fromi Noe York, and aigned by men who will be accepted as -epresentatives of the advanced Irish na ;ional party in the United States. It is addressed to Mr. Parnell ard his political friends, but before reaching them it will be submitted to a number of representative 2ationalists in Dublin for their approval : The nationalists here a ill support you an the following conditions: First-Abandonment of the federal demand had substitution of a general declazation in favor of self-government. Second-Vigorous agitation of the land ques tion on the basis of a peasantry proprietary, while aooepting concessions tending to abolish arbitrary eviction. Third-Exclusion of all sectarian iessues from the platform. Fourth-Irish members to vote together on all imperial and home questions, adopt an ag gressive policy and energetically resist coer sive legislation. Fifth-Advocacy of all struggling national ities in the British Empire and elsewhere. El'GLISH LA WYERS. WIIAT PROFESSOR DWIGHT OiSERVRD WHILE IN ENGLAND. t asby, of Washington, D.

He is now acknowledged to be the r ablest member c f the English bar. He uses what is rarely heard in an English court-elo r quence. In clearness , f statement the London law yers surpass the American; bat they have a trick of hesitat :a which greatly mars the effect e of theii arguments. The English judges, t to, are apt to frequently interrupt and question a lawyer in the middle of his argument. This has an excellent effect in discouraging sophis try and in making the argument clear and confining it to the imeortant points of a case. Snhob an exhibition cf dialectical skill as the Master of the Rolls in Chancery displayed in the condnot of a case he never expected to see again. No living judge could equal him. In I England common law and equity are com pletely separated. No lawyer 'practices in both courkt; neither is a judge ever transferred from one bench to the other. "A man may be a giant in the common law and a perfect child in equity, or vice versa." Professor Dwight spoke of the delightful situation tf the law offices in the Temple. In comparing the American and English s3 stems the Professor said that each had its advantages. "They may lose in wideness f knowledge by their ooncen trationtion in special liness. We may be less acncurate, and they less broad." The English methods of legal instruction were naturally of the greatest interest to him. At Oxford he was a guest of the professors. There, to his surprise, he found a great deal of attention paid to the study of the law. The examination of one student in particular, a young man who had returned after a few years' study in London to take his second degree, pleased him more)than anything of the kind he had ever beard. But law was taught there rather with a view to culture than to practice. In London they have lectures at the Temple, but of the leoturers there are but two of repo tation. He attended a lecture by Sir James Stephen which was very interesting, but hard lyof much practical value. A't ough the English examinations are very severe, they seem to have no thorough course of instruction, and no daily recitations. He had asked barristers why they did not teach their studetti after our American-method, and was told that English young men were "too timid to answer questions before a room full tf people." "The time was when the eating of a certain number of dinners was the sole re qgiremeet for admission to the English bar. Now they bnve both dinners and examinations. hoon they will ask for dinners, examinations and instruction." Senor Anselmo Alfara, a young poet who in clines to the Marseillaise style in his verses, was, rather unfortunately, as it subsequently appeared, selected t> help entertain the com pany at the celebration of Mexican Independ ence, in the City of Mexico, on the 153h of last month. The eff cir took place at the National Theatre. President Disz presided, and our Minister, Mr. Foster, was officially invited and occupied a box When Senor Alfara begin his poem the diplomatic teeth were soon set upon edge. It was a vehement appeal to the Mex loans t3 resent the insults offered them upon the Rio Grande. to "hurl back tae outrage in indiguant mood," to infltme their souls with valor, and much more of that sort, with assur anoes that " -a 'twas when David with Gol-ah wrestled hard. E'en so shall victory bring gceater lame," etc., e:c. Poor President Diaz sat in his chair and wiped beads of perspiration from his brow. Minister Foetnr sat in the box and wreathed his off :ial brow with awfal clouds of mixed dignity nod disanproval, while Senor Alfara read on acnd on. Finally .e ended with calling upon his hearers to die for their country, and the audience, in response, cried, "Death to the Yankees " and "Death to the North!" Minister Foster left in disgust. The next day the newspapers criticised the poem severely, and preeently Mr. Foster wrote a letter, saying that he hadn't considered the young poet's rhodomontade as ctlicial, and wasn't mad about it. which assurance the Mexican State Depart ment said they were very glad, indeed, t> have. 8o the eftsir ended at that point, and bhough it is evident that Sanor Alfara's poem has more or less sympathy in the Mexican capital, it is probab!u there will tnot be enough s,ius icflamed with valor to make the Rio Grande run red with gore MISCELLANEOUS.
