Tlic followiii"; Hciisible wor.ls arc from the Jíoston I'iiot, tho chiuf Jioinun Catholic pajtcr in the I'ni ted Stutes : We do nt, shout, for a Catholic President or a 1'rotestant l'resi dent, or a Hebrew President, but for an American President. And the best American is he w ho exc.in nlilies in his own person that this is not a Catholic, nor a Protestant country, nor an Anglo-Saxon, or a German or an Irish country, but a country of all races and creeds, with one great, broad, unalterable creed ot iair jday and equal rights to all. Wc could wish that all who rank themselves as religionists would take the same iew of the matter indicated, tht the Pilut docs. Put they do not. Pome a lining down to a late day, it was i in Catlifilic J'raticc, it was so in Protestant England, it was so in the Colonies m this country. The Puritans tied from England because they were not, peimitteil to serve !od according to the dictates of their consciences, and w hen loca ted here, they ut up their con sciences as spirit levels to direct and control others in their worship. And they were lettered tvra-its too, not unlettered, ignorant zeal ots, which rendered their .-way the ,more gulling in it's day, and the more reprehensible in the light ot the present age. We have often thought, and still think, that the religious body which the Pilot represents have aimed and still aim at a temporal power hero akin to the spiritual which it has attained, and loudly hope to see the day when the Cross, rather than the Starry Pan nor, shall be the ensign of Amer ica. Ah we never expect to see that day. so we ardently hope it. wiil never come that Church and Sf'i T will be ever divided in thi.s country. Put it is not alone tho KKToKi" COPPTEOLS. Sligii allowed his angry passions In ri.Mi lat v..,.k. He got mad, pawed the .aith, kicked up be hind and before, and tore things. lie was iiiiul at tho Lkaiu ií, and in order to duty it's editor, be smeared Lis own paper to such an extent that it was a st( rich in the nostrils ot it's every reader, no matter how polluted the person luanipuhiting it. S!ii:h -'tarts out by giving as canse for his anger, that while wo wrro at Nogal recently, we told a In, 'Jul of his that while here, ho, High. published us as a horse-thief. If a friend of his so informed him, tho alli:ince oii;;!'tto be a congenial one, for he can lie with equal facil ity to iSiigh. High never so pub lished us, ergo we never told any one that he did, and if ho had, we shouldn't have whined about it. If an indictment were hanging over our head for disposing-of sto len mules, the, rightful property of a woman, as ii'nv ponds over Hi;h. we might feel like whining Cer tain it is, wo would be ashamed i and wotiKiri i ,ien;ioii u.a, or m ot zeal begotten ot dangerous pro mlieo to miv reliifioti and nolities. Protestants, while asseverating . , , lieu eíiií, jo eiiuui .- on. i nij in-,,, 1 ... . . . t t -..i ot oot'i schools, nave uusieii ineni- lioman Catholics who show a s)ii-it I k;Il(llT,(, s.1):,.ct until purtr(.d 0t that the Catholics desire to rebuil their Church at the expense of other demominations, reveal their inner consciousness," unconsci ously sometimes, by making the religious professions of this or that candidate for ollice, a shibbo leth for political action When, for instance, a candi late for Presi dent is presented, his religious bias is canvassed and it he has none, then that ot his parents. Ami so, :is to candidates for Con gress or other offices. V et, where the connection bet ween parties and religion is, would puzzle any but a bigot. Take tor instance, our Presidents, and see how little re ligion or it's profession had to do with the undying fame oí the per sonages. Contemporaneous history in tonus us, that Washington was not a'protessmg Christian. Indeed he was charged in his life time with being a Tom Paine man in conviction, though too politic to so announce himself. His wite, Martha, was a devout Christian, but she was neither General nor President. Her husband George, held the dual positions. Thomas Jefferson was an open apostle of the faith which g, , ; u- edTom Paine. 'k et his .Mili- cal fume has not. sullered from h, however much some zealots i...n think hi:; spiritual frame ina now be siith nng. So wc might ti'Uieh the entire gamut until we find Lincoln, '"''I.,., not find response from a single. one who would come up to the standard fixed by the Egos of our l It' dav. Lincoln never attached inm u.Ji t. miiv ehiirch. and vet it selves in tho eflort to have God in serted in the Constitution. It is not enough lor them that the word " Creator," as represented in the Declaration ot Independence, and that the Constitution appears as signed by George Washington in "the year of our Loan, one thou sand soven hundred and eighty seven." No, they must have GOD in it, and because Congress will not stop it's legitimate work and take steps to present such an amendment to the Constitution as will impel the people to assert that they " believe in God the Father, (iod the Son, and God tho Holy Ghost," they tool as though pos sessed of religious license to an athematize that body for it's con tumacy. Wdonot despise Christianity nor it's devotees. We like colii e, but dislike cl.ickory ; so wo like Christianity while despising big otry. Wo love true Christianity, and true Christians command our voluntary esteem. Put there is a pale beyond which it is unseemly for religion to travel, and politics is a path which only morality, the h.'iL'!lli:.id .'Oillisti;0'.!tv,-:!lollld ox ! u!o:v.

Garfield was the only one in the long list who was a leader in religion as in politics, and he didn't live long enough to reveal whether or not his professions would prove an aid to his poli ical duties. The present incumbent is not, and never was a professing Chris tian, yet he is a pretty good man of his kind, however much or lit tle he may think ot his kind. There is no disputing the fact, that when a denomination becomes dominant in ooiijiuunity or State, With two labor tickets, the i'ro-hlhiliotii.-ts and both the old par t it s in the fold, Iiutii'Iig is needed to n hi variety and picturcMpiciu .-s to New York politics this year ex cept tho appearance of the " mug gies" and tho woman sull'ragists. The King of Spain is lourteen o,, nth old and has a fra'arv of LriOo.noit a year. Ho spends ev ery cent in lollipops ami caramels. tho heinous charge by the court before which we were arraigned. ( And right here, we feel like add ing in parenthesis, that we never felt that love for horseflesh that induced u- to possess noro than ono'ca'ndlo in our life, v.iine, and that was when in militar' service. On resigning we loaned our line grey to a chaplain and have never heard from either beast since, albeit the chaplain has been apprised of our whereabout.1".) Sligh says we drink forty glasses of whisky p(r day, ami this in face of tho fact known by ovcy one acquainted with us here, that wo do not taste, touch nwr handle whisky. "When we did, it was not '4' excess, and it was our habit to pay for even more than we con sumed, whereas ho had no such reputation, as we know from hav ing been authoi'iie.'. to dun him tor a whisky bill due Willlludgens by him, and hich nun we pub lished. Nor ditl we ever drink to sin h extent that we would make u.-e of language upon t ho public street loud oik. ugh tor everybody in town to hear, so obscene and blasphemous as to make a Negro courtezan blush from shame. Nei ther did whisky over cause us to show the heaslial nature which Sligh exhibited on White Oaks Avenue, ;m the glare ot day, when ho oxj ed i.ii per.-oii to empha size a vi 1 ." r proposition made to i';,e ph-necr mo,v! ant ot this town.

Henley docs not feel honored by our defense of him as against the cossardiy attack made upon him in tho Nugget, and intimates that wo dare not face the old gentleman. Tho let ter which we published last ivcek from Mr. Henley's -on, thanking us for our kind cmsef, and the oth er one, that wo isited Mr. Hen ley's alter our defense appeared, and the receipt tor publication of Henley, Jr's letter, gives tho lie direct to that dual charge. A Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones." While Sligh livid hero, ho lived in a very fragile hou- s, composed ot the thinnest of glass. When ho left hero, lie had no house, and there were nono so poor as to do him reverence by throwing a stone at him. He had so often swallowed himself, and spewed himself up, that, he nauseated everybody, and our people rejoiced over his depar turo as a quarantined party would over the lifting of an embargo. We do not know who is financially backing him, but if it is possible to read the future, wo c-.u seo in largo letters, "swindled" upon the brow of soino deluded mortal. We caro not what the Kev. (God save the mark !) may say about us. Since before attaining years of majority, wo have boon before the public, and there is no man who overbad business or pro fessional dealings with us with whom wo aro noi en- wore not on good terms, and no badge of dis honor ever attached to us. Emp ty vaporings of a diseased mind pass by us harmlessly, occasioning an occasional laugh at the ludic rous features of our distempered friend's ailment. The above is only the kernel of a big nut which wo throw in the dirty snaggled teeth ot our Colorado madura eoniplexioned friend this week. When ho in vites, wo will give J i I tn the meat. This week, wo arc too busy. If he has proper regard, however, or any, for his relatives, ho will not goad us to further expose his rotten character. Tho subject is a bad smelling ne, but having such a chronic case ot catarrh, we can handle it with some degree of comfort. LINCOLN. Lord Mayor Sullivan's Poetry. T. I).
