it is not artificial, and this we shall all find

AN EPISCOPALIAN.
‘ • Rxahop Qni niau's FnMund. —The
Mobile Reyidtr publishes the pastoral
letter of the Catholic Bishop ofjlubilc.
We extract from the letter: h
“An edifice of constitutional freedom,
whose fair proportions the clear heads of
; bold and skilful men have planned; whose
deep foundations the sweat of toilsome,
struggling years has watered; whose every
stone the blood of heroes has contented; J
whose towering grandeur, the boast and 1
wonder of the age, millions of honest
hearts hsvo loved and labored, lired and
died to sustain, and whose open portal*
spoke s welcome to the oppressed of even I
laud—this wondrous work, in its fresh
beauty, is nodding to its fall, fur dire am
bition and fanatic seal have capped itsj
strength and compassed its destruction. |
Alas, for the glory that is departing, the I
world may never lock upen its like again! j
But, in the midst of the gloom, there is I
one ray of comfort fur the American
Catholic- -the church that he loves im
planted no hostile conviction, encouraged
no adverse feeling; and those whom she
has commissioned to teach have never j
spoken but words of benediction. Indeed, j
it could not be otherwise, obedience to
the highest recognized authority and as
sent. without appeal to its decisions is th.
only plane in which state rights and con
gressional power can move in harmony
together. This in the catholic principle;
it is also the keystone of the federal arch.
So. dearly beloved, had the voice of our
church been been heard, and its influence
allowed to away the councils of men. our |
dear country would on this New Year*
day be making its giant strides, with un
divided strength, and planting its firm
footstep uu the threshold of a still glori
ous fntur-r and our joy would be that ot
the gladsome child that, knowing no care,
nestles in the bosom of its mother. Wc
are sorrowful; but, thank God, ours is not
the sorrow of remorse, nor the bitterness
of reproach. It is only the mournful re
gret that fills the honest heart, when that
which is great aud good is passing away,
perhaps forever.
“But let us not be misunderstood. While
rrgreting the dismemberment of ibis great
republic—and heaven knows we would do
all wc oould legitimately to prevent it—
we would nat purchase Union at the ex
pense of justiee. Better that the instru
ment ot confederation should be rent in
pieces and scattered to the winds, than
that it should become a cloak for malice or
a bond of iniquity. It is only ns a sccuri
ty for just mutual interests, a protection I
for reserved, independent rights, and tte !
noble charter of the Constitution is, in j
letter and spirit, all this—that we love th* i
Union of the states and prsy fur its con-1
tinuance. Let us then, dearly beloved, a
long as hope remains, faint not in our
efforts for its preservation. And even
when hope grows dim, let our prayers |
continue to arise in tenfold strength to the |
throne of God. It is in moments when i
human power retires in its weakness from '
the struggle, that the might of the Lord |
comes forth to succor. Then, if a hidden ,
and adorable Providence, in penalty of
oar sins, should|withall refuse its aid, with- ;
draw its hand and let our noble edifice [
foil to the ground, let us pray God, that
oat of the scattered materials, this wisdom
aud power may give form and stability to
other works, which may rival, if not in j
stately grandeur, at least tn social weal. |

Th# Report of th# Invasion Qwioitt—
The following is the report-of the Select
Committee appointed to investigate the al- !
leged conspiracy to seine the Capital:
The committee entered oprioi % invee- ,
tigation under a deep eetme of the?- impor
tance and the instrioric difficulty el the in
quiry. To prove the existenaa of-a secret
organisation having for Us nhpnt the re
sistance to and overthrow of the Govern
ment would, in the very naturanf the ease,
be a difficult tank, if each an osjgaatsation
really existed. On the other hand, in a
time of high excitement, consequent upon
the revoletioosry events transpiring all
around ns,—-the very air filled with ru
mors—and individuals indulging in the
most extravagant axpressions of fears and i
threats, it might well be thought diftcnlt
to elicit such clear proofs as would enable
the committee to pronounce authoritatively
that no such organisation existed, and thm>
contribute to the Quiet of the public mind
and the penes of Inc country.
The committee have pursued their la
bors with a determination on their part
to eeeertainthe teal foots safer as poibte,
end if sometimes they have permitted in
quiries and admitted testimony not strictly
within the rales of evidonoe or within the
seeps of the resolutions, it is to be attri
buted I# their great anxiety to elicit the
real foots aud to remove unfounded appre
hensions.
The extraordinary excitement existing
JL Jk
prior to the lake Proride#?is! tfoctkn led
, disaffected person* of high and low p#n-
I tin, after the result of that flection be
j net known, to consult together *o the
t question of submitting to that mdt, and
,1 also upon the various modes of rwic
, • tears.
rj Anroc otter mode*, a re*Wanes to
p| Bte coaming of the ballots and to the
tj Inauguration of Mr. Lincoln m| the
j seirnn of the Capitol and the Lumet
’ of Cdumhia. ware dismissed formally in
, j this city and elsewhere. But too much
, diversity of opinion seems la have exisl
, ed to admit of the adoption of any well
organised plan until some of the States
i commenced to reduce iter theories
of secession to practice. Since then,
f the persons thus disaffected, seem to
have adopted the idea that all resistance
to the Govern meet, if there is Co be any,
should hare at least the color of Slate
aurhorfty. If the purpose wt at suy
lime entertained of forming an orgaoiat
j tion, secret or otherwise*. to seize th-*
! District of Cdmubin. stuck the Capitol,
jor prevent the inauguration of Mr. Lin
-1 cola it seem* to nave Wen rendered
i contingent upon the secession of either
! Maryland or Virginia, or both, and the
Sanction of one of these Stated.
Certain organisation* in this District
ana in Maryland, that prior to the elec
tion seem to have been openly political
clubs, have since assumed the character
of military organisations, and are now
engaged iu drilling, and expect to pro
vide themselves with arms, some from
private subscription*. But so for ss the
committee were able to learn their pur
poses. while they sympathized with se
cession. there is uo proof that they in
tended to attack either the Capitol or
the District, unless the surrender should
be demanded by a State to which they pro
fess a high degree of allegiance.
Some of these companies in Baltimore
professed to W drilling for the sole pur
pose of preventing other military company
ios from passing throughdhe State of Ma
ryland. Whether these representations
| of the purposes of those companies be eor
| rect or not. the committee have failed to
: discover any ►atisfoctory evidence that they
have any purpose whatever, bs s mere
mob, without the sanction of &(ate author- ]
ity, to attack the Capitol or any other pub
lic property in this District, or to seize the
District. If it should be admitted that ,
| any one of thiso organizations was hostile
I to the Government, or entertained unlaw
ful purpose's, they are in no other proper
sense secret, and are not. ’hereforc. such
as are contemplated iu the resolution
of the Hou*a.
The committee are unanimously of the
opinion that the evidence produced before
them does not prove the existence of a se
cret organization, here or elsewhere, hos
| tile to the Government, that has for it*
object, upon its own responsibility an at
tack upon the Capitol*or any of the public .
property here, or an interruption of any of |
the functions ot ike Government.
The committee submit h re with all the
the testimony taken ou the subject, and
ask that the same aud this report be print
ed, and that the committee be discharged j
from the lurther consideration of the sub
ject.
tea. branm’h VIEW'.
Mr. Brsneh. (N. C.,) from the same
Committee, presented his views, ss fol
lows :
That he concurs entirely with the ma
jority, that the testimony does not estab
lish the existence of a conspiracy, or com
bination, or a purpose on the part of any
Btrsous to seise the public property, in the
{strict of Columbia, or to interfere with
regular operations of the Government. —
lie thinks it has been established, not
i withstanding the difficulty of proving a I
I negative, that no such conspiracy docs ex- i
' ist. cither in this District or elsewhere,
j It appears from the testimony of Lieu- I
I tenant Genera) Scott, that seven compau- i
j ies of artillery and one company of sap- 1
pars and miners, of the regular army, j
have been ordered to, aud are quartered in J
this city, in close vicinity to the Capitol,
| under a mistaken belief that the public
j property in the District was or would be
( in danger, and the Committee being unan
' imously of the opinion that uo such com
! bination or conspiracy or to
I the Government or its property exists, the
! undersigned would ask the passage of the
| following resolution:
/{faulted. That the quartering of troops
of the regular army iu this District, and 1
around the Capitol, when nut necessary ■
for their protection from a hostile enemy, 1
i aud during the session of Congress, is im- 1
| politic and offensive, and if permitted, may |
; become destructive of civil liberty; and.
in the opinion of this House, the regular
troops nuw in it ought to be forthwith re- I
moved therefrom.
——■ - ■ -- >■
A3T We learn that the active Repabli- j
j cans in New York city, (says the Bal- I
j timore Exchange, of Saturday last.) in
! their anxiety to prevent any movement i
on the part of Maryland prior to the
fourth of March, bar# offered to furnish
from thirty to fifty thousand dollars to
secure IhvTr object From the same source
we have also the information that the army
will be immediately increased by the new
administration to 100,000 or 150,000 men, |
and also close the Southern ports. We
state these foels on what we believe to be
unquestionable authority.

' Tnx Proposed Dctias ox Boo**.--
. There is no class of importers who will
suffer proportionately more from the new
• tariff, should it pass, than pul Ushers and
book sellers. There are also, in the'
I United States, a large class of persons who
are in the habit of replenishing fteur libra- 1
j ries with English. Gorman, aud French .
standard wonts, but who. under the in-;
• creased tax proposed, will feel disposed j
1 soiutfw bat to deny and restrict them-1
\ selves in this intellectual treat. This
may have a tendency to increase Ameri
can re-issues, snd there being no inter
national copyright, piracy on foreign aa- J
thors and publishers will grow still more .
common.
• Under th rt present tariff, the revenue j
derived from the duty on books, is paid ;
at the rate of eight per cent, ad valorem j
on all kinds. The to.al value of English j
books imported under the present low du-1
ty, does not probably average more than ,
|;.>00.000 or $300,000 per annum.
In the proposed tariff, there are four'
! clauses effecting English books, viz:
Sec. 18.—A duty of 15 cents per lb |
weight on all “New English Books, j
bound or unbound.”
| Sec. 19. K duty of 10 per cent, j
ad column on “Magazines, Printed Pam- !
phlets. Periodicals, and illustrated News- I
papers, bound or unbound,”
f*EC. 20. —A duty of 20 per cent, ad |
tolurcHi on “Periodicals and other works,
in course of printing and publication in ;
the United Stales.”—(Who can know j
this?)
t?ac. 22 -All B>oks printed more \
I than Thirty Years from ths date of impor- J
tation to be free.
Why “a hook, bound or unbound,” j
; should be charged 15 cents per pound. |
land “a pamphlet, bound or unbound.”
j 10 per cent, od vUnrein, is a problem in
stupidity which we cannot solve. Ou
bad effect of these clauses is. that it will
not pay here to reprint the classical, thco
l logical and scientific works of the first
class—the great bulk of imported tender i
being of this class, and demanding addi
tional rates. —A r . Y. Journal uf Commerce.
