Rozas.-On the 10th, the Pope's enoyolioal
letter appeared in the Oeecrratore Romano,
covering seven columns of that paper. He de
neones Booiealism, Communism and Nihilism,
whiobh militate no longer secretly but openly
against the civil state, rupturing the matri.
monial ties, -gnoring the right of property,
laiming everythig however legally inherited
or honestly acquired, and attempting even the
lives of king. These sinister agenoies spring
from the Reformation, which opened the 1
sluicale gates of skepticism till godless govern- 1
mets -ave arisen wherein the Author and 1
Redeemer of the world is ignored. Youth are 4
trained to believe that man's distoioes are
bonhded by the present and without any here- 4
after. hence the impatient and aggressive I
spirit which seeks its gratifliation at others'
expsese. Thus the natoral development of the i
Beformation was indicated by previous Pen- e
lite from Clement [iL to Pine IX, in their t
alloeatipns and enoyclicals, but the chorch's t
wariag is more than ever reqgired. When a
tyranny prevails then the Churobh shi',d the
preseed. When the tyrant is too strong she i
njoins resignatIon. The Pope j astifia Cnrle- f
dan marriage and the subservience of woman o
te man, of the obhild to the parent, and cf the t
ervant to the master. Such interdependence c
rightly observed in the state as in the family
would operate on the earth as it does in Heaven. v
rhe poverty of which sooialism is impatient is o
sorreoted bt the church, which besides her E
own charities enjoins alms giving on the rich t
Swhom she thus reconoiles the poor. Such a
a the solution of the evils for which socialism ii
aeks a revolutionary remedy. Let therefore a
il principalities and powers accept the t
fhuroh, the sefiguard of earthly and the t
aresy of heavenly things. a
Faxca -On the 14th the Chambers ress- a
ambled, the Assembly reeloted Grevy, presi- 0
lent, and the Senate chose Louis Joseph Mar- v
el, who was nominated by the Republicans. o
be country is already in a state of great
gitation on account of the proceedings of the a
extreme Radicals who have been greatly em
eoldened by the success of the Republioan
perty. They desire at once to secure the adop
lion of a programme which will include the i
abolition of clerical influence in the nniversi- a
sle and power to grant degrees; a declaration
a favor of compulsory education ; assurance
gainst protectionism ; and a promise of dis- b
tmssl of reactionary members of the magis- 0
racy and foreign offic. .

-The Ties dispatoh continues : The conduct fo
f the Republicans is justifying all the worst hi
rediotlons of their adversaries. Gambette's t
per, La Bepalique F1ascaise, attacks the ap- vi
oiotment of Gresley to the Ministry of War, in
stead of Farre. "The Left have fully mads
p theIr minds to have the Ministers, and are its
etermined to remove all but Republicans from tb
Sue, and to carry out the wishes of the elec- th
nral body, especially as regards the Ministry ha
fWar." Gambetta's speech at Romans left ex
o doubt as to the magnitude of the changes wi
let would be insisted upon. Foremost among mi
ess'is e change in the Generals in command of

AWskraorox.--In the Senate during exeo- era
' essloa, the war between Haves and Con- I
hg broke out afresh on the New York ap- had
polntments. It happened in this way : Seors
tary Shermrn sent in an elaborate communion
tion assigning reasons for the removal of the
New York Custom House cfiolals, Messrs.
Arthur and Cornell. The 8eoretary charged
them both with ineffciency and mismanage
ment of their offioes, and alse with a positive
neglect of duty, and argued that they could
not be depended on for the collection of the
publia revenue. As thees gentlemen were
speoial friends of Mr. Conkling, the Senator
came to the rescue in an able phillippic against
the Administration, marked by extreme con
tempt and bitterness. IHe said the charges
were false and frivolous, and that the Presi
dent had been groely misinformed. Jude
Thurman referred to this Republioan wrangle
in a sarcastle manner, and suggested that the
Secretary's letter ought to be made public, so
that the fioials assailed could have a chance
to defend themselves. Mr. Edmunds moved,
however, to refer the whole subject to the
Committee on Commerce, which was carried,
This is like sending the lamb to the wolf.
Conkling and his friends control that commit
tee absolutely. The Democrats on it, and the
Senate Democrats generally, despise Mr.
Hayes for his mean partisanship, his Ku Klox
and timber prosecutions, and his slanders on
the South. They will leave him and Conkliog
to fight it out. This is considered the first
stepin the Presidential campaign.
The Senate passed a bill granting arrears of
pensions to persons entitled thereto, dating
from the time of death or discharge from sear
vice. It will require about eighteen millions
to pay each arrears. The bill was passed a'git
came from the House, without amendment.
Washington, Jan. 13 -The new sugar tariff
was carried to-day in committee by the votes
of Gibson, Robbins, Harris. Bayler, Tooker,
Borohard and Phelps, agairat the votes of
Wood, Banks, Kelly, and Garfield. It is regard
ed as a great triumph for the Louisiana plant
ing interests. The rate is 2 40-100 on melado
concentrated, melado and molasses ooncentra
ted, and syrups from cane juice and tank bot- i
toms and on all sugars not above 13 Dutch
standard; on grades 14, 15 and 16. Dutch
standard, it is 21 cents; on all above 16 it is 4
cents. The hopes of nesaing the bill are not c
very bright. Mr. Wood. chairman of the
committee, has reported a finoaneial bill to the
House first, thus givingsit a precedence which
may be fatal to the new sugar tariff,
The House has taken up the bill to provide t
for a Miesseiippi River improvement commis- i
sion, and for the improvement of the naviga- I
lion of said river and the protection of its a
alluvist lands, to which bill Mr. Robertson
had offered amendments appropriating some 2
r-3 800,00 for closing crevases, to be expended I
by the War Department. The consideration t
of the bill caused much interest among me:n. r
bere from the Southwest, but on the part of I
the Hoes, generally, there was not evinced a
any interest proportioned to the importance i
of the subject. The bill will probably be de
feated by the votes of Northern Democrats. ,
14 h, inst., at Maunh Chnuk, Pa., boarpe and
McDonnell, members of the Mollie Magnire f
Society, were hanged for murder. & moment
of er the drop fell a reprieve from Gov. Hart- C
raoft was received. The telegram says: When a
the Governor's reprieve arrived at the jail this ,
morning a esene of intense excitement ooorr
ed, but althoogh the culprits .had only been n
banging for a few minutes, there was no n,
movement made toward ontting them down. c
The telegraph messenger reached the jail be- .
fore the drop fell, but no heed was taken of it
his knocking and ringing. The wife of one of h
the uonlprits having previously been extremely
violent outside, when the drop fell the knock
ing and ringing continued, and the Sheriff fr
sent out a man to arrest the parties whom he di
imagined to be creating a disturbance. It was t
then found to be a telegraph messenger with tt
the reprieve. A brother or McDunoell, who ht
had been kneeling by the scaffold, arose and a,
excitedly charged the 8' erlff and bystanders A
with the murder of his brother. The excite
ment spread, and the sheriff appealed to one
of the priests, who exonerated him from blame.
Amidst this excitement the reproaches of the
maddened brother of MoDonnell and the
wailing of the bereaved families outside, the
onlprits seem to have been forgotten, and
they remained bhanging for thirty minutes To
after the drop fell. There is no reasonable
loubt, however, but that they were both dead mi
when the reprieve came. After the bodies ad
were out down they were placed in eofisa and of
given to their families, whose cries could be ml
leard for several blocks, adding greatly to the ce:
revailing excitement

in My Dear Mr Caraher.--I have to offer you
ing sincere thanks for your letter on the land ques- t
ope tion, valuable to me as reflecting the opinions
his and setting forth the views of one so well and r
on-so intimately acquainted with the ounty, and d
og I wish moat warmly to acknowledge the kind-.
ot. ly terms in which you refer to me, and the i'
on confidence you are good enough to express in C
om my loyalty to the cease of the Irish tenantry.
nto Upon this question of the land there can be no b
en- rest, no trooe, no pause. Formidable as are g
men the obstacles before us, discouraging and des
by perate as may be our task, we are bound to
)0, press on, for, in a cause like this of the Irish
ide tenant, time-that is, time allowed to pass T
wbe without protest-works against justice, and is a

ro- Gladetone Land Act of 1870. tenant pronerty te
in *mounting in value to nearly £2000,000 was
hat sold as landlord property in Ireland, the ten- tt
;e ants being robbed to that extent on the sales m
so of landed estates with tenanoles at will in our ti
na unfortunate country. I, for one. feel, there

working its havoc on the tenant class, and tt
that it is an imperative duty to cry aloud II

ture t Dark od diamal, indeed. There are, I f
ty verily believe, soorns of men voting against os to
ne, of this question from sheer inability to realize °e
ral its force and meaning as we see it in Ireland. Oc
England is so thoroughly a commeroial nation at
ni, that the commercial idea permeates and domi
rer nates everything. You might as well argue tie
with a blind man as to the difference between it
red and blue, or with a deaf one about the ito
ad trmerits of a national mtlody, us try to get these ob

Tue peculiar circutmstances of England have 'iO
he kept them till now from feeling the pinch of a
tenure question here. Their gigantic commer- fat
ro- cial and manufacturing development drew off mm
' the people from the land, and allowed the fri
' landlords to establi h the idea that no one W]
all under God's sky had a right in or on the soil ha
er but themselves. 8), when we come to talk to an
Is this House of Commons of the occopanoy right qu
er of the Irish tenant, the members all around us

be' the forest. Remember the oase we have to pao
ie to tiem is not merely one that does not arise

tional circumstances hitherto prevalent here), tot

the English landlords shudder at the idea-of phi

a hold of tenure on the soil. in I
But unless I fall to read the signs of the wi
d times, the day is coming when there will be a the
land question here in England that will shake Bie
ir the feudal system into the dust. If the check of 1
d of tie manufacturing development of this the
country continue, a great and immutable law har
me of nature will be seen asserting itself. The wet
d population will turn around from the huge the
towns and saek the land. Then, perhaps, the ing
' masses of the English peocple will see how they the
' have sold their birthright in this matter, and -°'
allowed themselves to be cut cff from the soil; to I
and happy will England be if in that hour the poo
land question be settled here as peaceably, as and
calmly, and as equitably towards all parties hon
and all interea's as we In Ireland are now pro
t striving to settle it. the,
We, however, never allowed snobh a fatal oe5s
system to constitute itself unquestioned In our the
midst. We have made protest and war against log
its wrong, and that war and protest I am for tie
maintaining resolutely still. And why t Shall
I deceive my constituents and fellow-country- Al
r men by holding out the idea that this legisla- peep
tore is likely to pass, not merely Mr. Batt's espe
Land Bill, but any land bill that will give In
fixity of tenure at valued rents1 No, I cannot Fati
lend myself to suooh aorel delusion. But loan of I
say that I honestly believe that these two ad- Elds
vantages flow from a persistent effort on our alum
part. grat
Firstly, I believe In the inevitable triumph am t
of our prinoiples, not merely In Ireland, but with
here in England; and we are, as it were, hold- but,
ing a citadel meanwhile. pate
Secondly, I say that sad as are the evils the on ti
Irish tenantry suffer from, as it is, things a see
would be thousandfold worse if it were not for me I
the activity of public opinion which we thus wish
maintain on the question. For proof of this I than
need; only point to our own county and the aent
good aooomplished by you and your respected Bit
colleagues of the Tenants' Defence Association. be se
I tell you there are hundreds of tenant farmers the c
sitting by their own beartheldes to-night in Ire- peon
land who would be on the roadside, honesless Is k,
and,farmlesg, if we were inort and silent and "apma
keeping up no vigilant war on the land system. their
What proof san I adduce that there is a land If,
question arising here In England Look as e
around. Note that every essentially popular poor,
organization In this country, north, south, to tr
east and west. Is now addressing itself to Fran
that question. Mark the crowding eigna that
the people, the forces of popular power are
ad. tackling it. Read the remarkable pamphlet I
send you herewith, and say if it Is not for us
NIAa Irishmen a startling sign of the times. It is a
lecture on the land tenore systems of England
end other countries by Mr. W. H. Daignan, of
Ir. A. Wallall, Staffordshire, a gentleman of inlde
per dent fortune, of great ability, and grou.t
:ten- irlaence. You will see that, with the researob I
and penetration of a scholar and a philosophi
s oal politician he boldly proclaims the prlooi
;d plea which we in Ireland have been so violently
r ou denounced for maintaining on the land ques
ques- tion. More signifiant atilt is the fact that the

Y Next month, God willing, the Arohbishop
1 of Milwaukee, Dr. Henoi, *111 celebrate
the fiftieth anniversary of his priestly
ordination. Thousands of his old friends
in Cincinnati, will mark this day as a red
d lettered one in the calender of their own
y lives. The Joy that this annlversary will
bring to the heart of the good and venert
ed Archbishop will be their Joy-his festi
val will be for them a day fail of sweet
e memories. In this diocese fifty years age
be received the dignity of the priesthood
from the hands of the saintly Penwlek. For
fifteen years, until the Holy See called him
to his present exalted position, he was ea
r gaged here in missionary labors at Canton
r and in the city of Cincinnati. As pastor
of Holy Trinity (German) Church he ex
ercised the widest and most beneficial ina
fluence over his brethren in the faith. The
German laity justly regarded him as the
priest entitled by his virtues and learning
to be their guide and leader in all works
r of religion. Ile was worthy of the limitless
confidence which his bishop and the people
placed in him. His leadership was always
marked by rare prudence, and snucces
always followed it. While engaged in his
priestly labors for his growing congrega
tion, now the largest in the city among the
Cethollo Germans, he established the
liauhrheitsfreund, became its first editor,
and organized the flourishing St. Aloysian
Orphan Society. Lost Sunday this Society
celebrated the forty second anniversary of
its birth. The life of Mons. Henal, as a
priest and bishop has been of the highest
honor and greatest benefit to the Church in
the United States.

We are pleased to learn that the people
of Jsanerette possess cow what they so
long wished to have, a resident Catholcl
pastor. The Rev J. D. Flanagan, for over
seven years assistant priest at the Chureb
of St. Peter and St. Paul, New Orleans, has
been selected by the Most Rev. Archbishop
for this difficult and laborious position.
The young pastor is without a presby
tery, without a school, and without a
Church, properly so called. But from the
knowledge we have of the go-sareadative
ness of the citizens of Jeacerette and of the
energy of their first Catholic pastor, we are
confident that they will soon possess Cath
olic institutions of which they may bejostly
proud. There can be no doubt that sesh
institutions contribute much, not only to
the beauty but also to the developmenat
of new towns, such as Jearerette.
We understand that Father Flanagan
will shortly call upon his parishioners for
aid in building his church and parochial
house, and we suggest that he should sail
on all onE-Catholic residents to assist him
in a work which so vitally affects the pro
gress of the town.
