Still more important is the resolution agreed to by the Bishops of Ireland respecting “ unlawful societies.

_ The Toumay election took place on the 10 th inst., and resulted in the defeat of M. Dumortier, the champion o f the Catholic party, and the victory of M. Charles Rogier, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Preo) sident of the Council. M. Rogier is the avowed y j yi lB J a »l|liii||Vi 9 U ^ * >rimc

Charles Rogier, or anyone in Belgium, would hesitate to avow that M. Dumortier was the candidate who re presented the feelings of those who desire to be counted as obedient children of the Church, and as friends to her cause. Yet, in a nominally Catholic constituency he was defeated by a majority of nearly 500 out of about 3000 voters. There is no help for it. The fact proves the extent of the evil with which Catholics have to deal. There is no question of coercion or intimidation that we know of ; the case must be taken to be that a large majority of the citizens of Tournay who enjoy the elective franchise approve of the policy/of the present Ministry although nobody doubts that i t is hostile to the Catholic Church.

— W e publish elsewhere, from the F r e em an 's J o u r n a l , the extremely important resolutions adopted a t the general meeting of the Bishops of Ireland in Dublin, on August 4th and two following days. t^EÜrlfishops reiterate principle on which the National System of education is based, as intrinsically unsound, at variance with the interests of the Catholic religion, and dangerous to the faith o f their flocks. oq ¿k jqA .'ip ¡4 ftW dW lWliMfoiP iV (Unnaturally »i ** riih within the last two years, when His Grace the Archbishop of Dublin published a condemnation, not only of Secret Societies bound by oaths, but of other secret and unlawful associations. I f we remember rightly, an attempt was then made to distinguish between His Grace’s condemnation of oath-bound societies, which was treated as an Episcopal sentence, and his condemnation of other secret and unlawful associations, which was treated as a political opinion.

But now, that the chief Pastors of the Catholic Church in Ireland have joined in this collective act of condemnation, i t may perhaps be expected that no such attempt at evasion will be made.

W e have still to learn how these resolutions.are understood by the “ Nationalists.” What is thought of them by Nationalist orators, and editors, and statesmen, and in particular by Messrs. Kickham and Gill ? Have they brought joy to Slievenamon ? Are they likely to help on the new “ National organisation ?”— and what do the Fenians say upon the subject ? These are questions to which answers must- be sought from the “ National organs.”

Our readers will notice that while warning their flock against these criminal combinations, the Irish Bishops do not omit to warn the Government and the Legislature, mid; the neglect and indifference shown to the wants and to the distress of the Irish poor have created discontent in Ireland, and they call for measures to afford employment to the labouring classes, and to develop the agricultural resources of the ¡ f t i i ty .'V !l,<- ’/ -r-Jf»* !.'v.ii v s i t iili.'f ; »

— The Roman M on ito r e , of the 3rd Sept., says that that is the fortieth day that the miraculous image of Most Holy Mary, venerated under the title of “ Our Advocate,” in Vicovaro, has daily renewed the prodigy, sometimes more sometimes less apparent, nofr of raising the eyes to heaven, now of casting them on the ground, now o f sweetly turning them round upon her children supplicating for themselves, the Church, and Chief Shepherd.

They again condemn the Model Schools as specially d angerous,/|W ii*s^w fe®M M tJW V R their best exertions to withdraw children from them, and direct, as they did before, that no Priest shall send any peisou to be trained as a teacher either in the Central Model School, or in any other Model School, and that no teacher so sent to be trained shall be employed as such by any Priest. The Bishops’ claims are : That the teachers be Catholics approved of by the Bishops and Priests severally concerned ; that school books, such as those compiled by the Christian B ro tM M F ^ ^ P ^ pm in Catholic tq jg k p f spirit, be used in those schools ; that the use of religious emblems in the schools and the arrangements for religious instruction be not interfered with, and that those schools be inspected only by Catholic in spectors appointed as in England. ¡,

The Bishops also come to resolutions which will, or a t least ought, to make the situation of the Catholic Commissioners untenable ; for they declare thatCatho.'m Uc Commissioners fail in the respect and obedience due

He urged them to pray for the peace of the Church and conversion of her enemies : to reflect that the wickedness of the world was the cause of scourges inflicted, and of heavier impending : that the miracle before their eyes Was a warning, but that scourges could not be averted exoept by abandoning the evil way and returning to the true path. The wicked were lately brandishing a two-edged sword with the mad purpose of destroying the divinity of Jesus the Redeemer, and the basis of all the glories of Mary, her ineffable Maternity, j B| repair this outrage it is absolutely necessary for Catholics to approach J e t i t t f r i S l tbp(oflaowinjfctiriW I greater faith, and to show to the Mother of God the poison St. Benedict. A few miles further is the eagle’s nest, Sarracinesco, founded by the Saracens, who were ravaging the valley of the Anio in 876. Certainly, if the Rome of the Popes had to pray against the marauding devils o f those days, she will find nothing in the maxims and manners of Victor Emmanuel and his swarm to encourage her to hope for greater mercy at their hands. Prayers were never more needed by Catholics throughout the Catholic world.

Mr. George Potts, the Conservative Member for Barnstaple, is reported as suffering from serious illness.

B arnstaple.—Should a vacancy occur in the representation III tMa Vwn«j| 111ill probable that Captain Keith Fraser /run be requested to offer himself as a candidate. Captain Fraser is an officer in the first Regiment of Life Guards, and brother to Sir William Fraser, Bart., M.P., the representative of Barnstaple in the Parliaments of 1852 and 1857, who possesses considerable property in the town and neighbourhood ; and to Colonel Fraser, V.C., commanding the 11th Hussars.

R epresentation of T amworth—The Hon. Henry Cowper, who has offered himself as a candidate for the representation of the borough of Tamworth, in succession to Viscount Raynham, now the Marquis Townshond, is to be opposed by Mr. John Peel, of Middleton Hall, a magistrate of the county. A requisition largely signed has been presented to Mr. Peel, who, in an address he has issued accepting the invitation, states that if elected he shall enter Parliament as an independent member, unpledged to the unconditional support of any individual statesman. He adds that on all occasions, in public affairs, he has acted in concert With the party who acknowledged the late Sir Robert Peel as their leader, and that he still adheres to the principles which he has hitherto professed.—Times.

T he R epresentation of K ent.—Mr. Wykeham Martin has publicly announced that he intends to offer himsef as a candidate tor Newport ; and although it has not been publicly announced, it is equally certain that Mr. Whatman will offer himself for the borough of Maidstone. The county Liberals have, therefore, put out to sea in search of candidates. What may be the result of their cruise it is impossible for us to conjecture. It is said that Sir Joseph Hawley will devote his personal services to the needs of his party! Mr. Goldsmidt, of Somerhill, is also talked of ; and we have heard other names mentioned. Certain it is that the Liberal party will fight to the death. It will, we believe, be a matter of great regret that Sir Edmund Filmer has determined not to offer himself as a candidate at the next election.—“ Maidstone Journal.”

Denmark and Germany.—L'Europe of Frankfort, in its impression of Tuesday, publishes the following :—“We have learnt that the Federal execution against Denmark is determined upon. Holstein is to be immediately occupied by German troops. The strength of the corps of occupation is not known to us. We can also announce, on the subject of the arrangements entered into between Denmark and Sweden, that the Government of Charles XV , informed of the grave decision come to by the German Confederation, has concentrated an army of from 18,000 to 20,000 in that part of Sweden facing Copenhagen. This Swedish corps d ’armée will pass over to Denmark as soon as Holstein is occupied by the German troops.” 7 |pi .

Another P olice Campaign.—Preparations are already in progress for another police campaign. There appears to be a most perfect understanding between Sir George Grey and Sir Richard Muyne on this subject. Sir Richard is jackal to the lion of the Home-office. The prey was scented long since ; it was discovered to be hazardous to toueh it, and so a jilan has been formed tor tracking it down, and making an end of it some day, if darkness will but favour the enterprise. A letter dated 1st of Jane, but only within a few days made public, has been addressed by Sir Richard Mayne to Sir George Grey, not for the purpose merely of conveying information on police matters, but ostensibly for the purpose of showing how much better it would be to amalgamate the police forces than to allow them any longer to continue under separate heads of management. Sir Richard avowedly hungers to be the one Caesar of the blue brigade; he looks on the independence of the City with envious jealousy, and if he be powerless to destroy the administrative isolation of the City force, he will at least find some amusement in proving it to be wasteful, vicious, and ineffective. Sir Richard Mayne cannot but be an authority on police matters; be has seen as much as any man in England of the working of the police force; but, nevertheless, we must not accept his statements of the relative effectiveness of the two forces for the simple reason that he is a partisan, the advocate of an idea, and too much bent on seeking undivided power to be capable of impartiality.—City P ress. •" ■■3 ' ' W ' jfc
