Venerable Brethren : Health and apostolic bless ing, no soon as, In the mysterlona counsels of Ood, we found ourselves brougnt under a hostile power and paw the civil state of the Apostolic See saoju gated by force of arms, and tne consequent sad and bitter lot of this our city of Koine, we wrote yon, on the 1st day of November of the Tear last nast: to yon, and, through yon, to the whole Catholic world we declared the condition of ourselves and of our city, and to what unbounded excess of au impious license we were exposed. And we testified that, on account of onr supreme duty before Uod and man, we willed to keep whole and entire the rights of the Apostolic See. We stirred you up, and aU the faith ful, our beloved children, committed to your charge, to appeasing the Divine Majesty by fervent prayers. Since then the ills and woes which those tlrst mournful trials feretold to us and to the city, and especially to the apostolic dignity and authority, and to the holiness of religion and morals, have re dounded on our beloved subjects so that, in the ever-aggravated circumstances existing, venerable brethren, we are compelled to say, in the words of St. Bernard, "These are evil beginnings; we fear worse;" for iniquity is running its course, and - urging its counsels. Nor any more does it seek to Bbrond its must wicked works, which, Indeed, can not be hidden; and now it seeks its finishing spoil, In tramping under foot Justice, honor.and religion. In this anguisii, which nils our days with bitter ness, especially at the thought of how continually the faith and virtue of our people are sublected to dangers aud to snare, your signal merits, venerable brethren, and those of onr beloved faithful em braced in your care, afford us the most marked and living satisfaction. Far from every region of the world the faithful, wonderfully attentive to our ex hortations and following your leadership aud ex ample, have counted it their duty, from than mourn ful day of the invasion of onr city, to beseech the throne of divine mercy by steady and fervent pravers ; by public and continued supplications, by sacred pilgrimages, by unbroken gatherings in churches aud feiveot communions and by other principal acts of Christian virtue. Nor can these most earnest efforts towards aD- peatlDg the Lord fall of abundant fruit. The many good results already gained promise yet others, that we await in hope and confidence. For we see Btanchness in the faith and', burning charity un folding themselves always more and more. We be hold a concern that God alone could inspire, la the inlnds of ChrUt's faithful, for the travails and trials of this Holy See, and of the Chief Shepherd. We discern such a oneness in understandings and In Wills that, from the earliest times of the Church hitherto, never could it be more truthfully or more gloriously said than in our days that the "multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one mind." In which array of virtues we cannot refrain mention of our beloved children, citizens of this cherished city, whose love, 01 every rank and de gree, towards us has shone forth, and yet shines, and their devotion and steadfastness equal to the test; and tbelr great-mlndedness not only worthy, but rival of their forefathers of old. Therefore, venerable brethren, we render undying thanks and glory to the God of Mercy for you all, and for onr beloved children, Christ's falthml, be cause he baa wrought, and is still working, such great thliigs In yon; such great things in ills Church; and that he has brought it to pass that where wickedness abounds there has more abounded the grace of faith, of; love, and of a true confession. 'What is our hope, then, and our joy, and our crown Of glory? Are not you In God's presence? A wise son Is the glory of his father. May Ged, therefore, bless yon ; ana may lie remember the faithful ser vice and the tender compassion and comfort and honor which you have exhibited, and do still, to the spouse of Bis Son, in an evil time and in days of Borrow." (St. Bernard Epist.) ' Bnt the Bub-Alpine Government, meanwhile, while on one hand it hurries to make the city of Borne the scorn of the world "Urbemproperat Orbi acereabulum"SU Bern. Hp.) on the other, labors to beguile Catholics, by putting np and arranging certain idle immunities and safeguards that, in its language, It calls "guarantees," to the end that these be substituted to us for the civil sovereignty which, by a long series of Intrigues and by parricidal arms it has robbed as of. Already, venerable breth ren, we have pronounced our sentence npon these immunities and safeguards. We have branded their folly, their guile and their mockery In our letter, dated the Sd of March last, to our venerable brother Constantlne Patrizi, Cardinal of the Holy Koman Church, Dean of the Sacred College and acting as our Vicar in Koine, which was, In due time, printed and published. But according to the manner of the Snb-AlplBO Government, joining a base and unceasing pretense of consideration to a shameless contempt of our Pontifical authority and dignity, and treating our protestations, our expostulations, and our censures as of no account, it has proceeded, in its Parlia ment, to act on these aforesaid "safeguards" as if they were serious, and has had discussions on them, and gone forward In urging and advancing them, noi withstanding the sentence expressed by us on their emptiness. In this discussion full proof was given both of the truth of our judgment on the nature and meaning of those "safeguards" and of the vain attempt of the enemy to conceal the fraud and malice that were In them. Truly, venerable brethren, it is hard to believe (incredibiU est), that so many errors openly against the Cathodo faith and against the very foundations of natural law as were uttered on occasion of that debate could have been put forth in the eentre of this Icaiy.whlca has ever especially gloried, and now glories, in de votion to tne oatnouo religion and to tne Apostolic See of the Koman pontiff. And in very deed, by the singular protection God grants Ills Church,the convictions 01 far tne larger part of the Italians are very different. They groan with us and deplore this new phase of unaccepted sacrilege, and they assure us day by day, by Increasing proofs and avowals, that they are associated in spirit ana in understand ing with the faithful in other parts of the world. Wherefore we anew address our voice to vou. venerable brethren ; and, although the faithful com . milted to you, by letters or by grave documents in form of protebts. have shown us how outraged they are at the condition ttat oppresses us, and how fur they are from being deceived by the cheats called "safeguards," we yet consider it a part of our apos tolic duty that we should declare solemnly through you to the whole world that not only what are called 'safeguards," and which are devised by the Sub- Alnlne Government, but mat au titles, honors, un munltles. and privileges, whatever shape they take. nnder the seneral name of safeguards or ruaran. tees, can be of no avail whatever towards securlns the prompt and free use of the power divinely trans mitted to us, nor tuwaius guarding tne liberty nrensart for the Church. Such being the condition of aftalrs, as we have re peatedly declared and professed that, without the crime of breaking our solemn oath (at enthronlaa- tkB. we can consent to no condition which, In any manner, would destroy or diminish tie rights of God and of the Apostolic Bee, so now, as of our bounden duty, we declare that we will never agree to nor accept, nor can we so agree to or accept these cunnlngly-wrought-out safeguards, or nroDoaed by the 8ub-Alnlue Govern ment, whatever their device : or any otuers ef what soever kind, or however ratified, wulch. nnder the form of securing our sacred power and liberty, shall have been offered to as la lieu of and in exchange for that civil principality wtn wnion Divine Prevl j.. i!id that the holy Apostolus See should be furnished and strengthened, and which is ratified to na bv legitimate and Irrefragable titles as well as by ...u.n for mere than eleven centuries. For it iamost clear to every one that, were the Roman V-ontlff to be subjected to the rule of another prluoe, and not to possessed himself of a real sover r. i. ,,mi exemnt neither In his own per. iun nor in the acu of his apostolic ministry from the ?T".."f ib.traierto whom he would be subject. r-Jw.iht inie a heretic or a persecutor of Iho Chnrcb. or?again. might be at war with other rulers or other wUe in a state of war. ind indeed, la not this very concession of safe nt?UofThlch we speak a most clear proof that Kher right than what the vm of lay rulers pre sent! s 1 attributed W us,wUoluvo, the divinely-given suthority of making laws regard ing the raorsi an" religious order to us, who are count ltuted the Interpreter throughout the world of natural and mvlne right. And as to what reg arrts the relations of the Church hd civil society you know perfectly well, venerable brethren, that a'.l the prerogatives and all the rights of authority neces ary to governing the universal Church have been received by us, in the person of the most blessed Peter, directly from God himself. Nay, thoe prerogatives and right and the very liberty of the Church were born and acquired by the blood of Jetus Christ, snd are to be valued by the Infinite prlie of Ills divine blood. Ill, then, would we deserve of the divine blood of our Redeemer, were we which God forbtl to borrow these onr rights, especially lessened and debased as they wish to lend them, from rulers of the earth, who are sons, not masters, of tne church. Thus said to princes, fittingly, that great light of sanctity and doctrine, Anselm, Archbishop of Canterbury: "Think not that the Church of Ood In given yen as to a master, to make use of her, but that she is commended to you as her advocate and champion. Nothing more pleases Uod than the liberty of Ills Church." And the same saint wrote In another place, adding Incentives to duty : "Never count that your dignity Is lessened If you defend and cherish the liberty of the Church. Deem not that It humbles yon when you exalt her. Think not that you are weakened when you strengthen her. Lift np jour eyes and look all about yon examples are at your hand. Meditate on the princes who flgbt against the Church and trample on her. See whether It is pioflting them. What Is becoming or them Is too plain to need speaking of. Assuredly, they who promote her glory with her and in her win Una their own glory." (SU Anelm Epp. 18 et 42.) And now, venerable brethren, after what at other times, and here, we have explained to yon, it surely ean tie dark to no one that tne wrong done In these woeful times to the Eoly See have redounded on the whole Christian commonwealth. The wrongs of the Apostles, as St. Bernard says, since these are the glorious rulers of the earth, affect every Chris tian; and since, as 8t. Anselm says, again, the Ro man Church works for all the Chuiches; whosoever takes away an) thing belonging to her Is recognized as guilty of sacrilege, not only against her, but against all the Churches. Nor Is there a shadow of donbt that the keeping of the rights of this Apostolic See Is most closely Joined and tied to thn nUhest purposes and interests of the whole church and to the liberty of your Episcopal ministry. Thinking and meditating on all these matters, we are bound anew to enforce and to profess what we have oftentimes declared, with your unanimous consent that the civil sovereignty of the Holy See has been given to the Roman Pontiff by a singular counsel of Divine Providence; and that it is of ne cessity in order that the Koman Pontiff may exer cise the supreme power and authority divinely given to him by the Lord Christ himself, of feeding and rnlmg the entire flock of the Lord with fullest liberty, and may consult f oi t he greater good of the Church, and its Interests aud needs, that he shall never be subject to any prince or civil power. Yon, venerable brethren, and with you the faith ful committed to your care, knowing these things well, are Justly moved, all of you, for religion's sake, and for the rake of justice and of peace, the foundation of all other good things, and you have given to the memory of future generations the worthy sight of faith and love, constancy and firm ness, on behalf of the Church of Uod and in her de fense, in which you have set a new and noble ex ample, nut, since tne God or an mercies is aiso tne Author of these good dispositions, we lift our eyes, our hearts, our hopes to Blm: unceasingly beseech ing mm mat ite win increase, strengthen, ana con firm the excellent dispositions and the piety that are common to you and to the faithful, and we also earnestly exhort vou. and the people committed to your watchfulness, that as the contest waxes in its neat you will call to the Lord, with us, more fei- ventiy, ana witn more eausion of heart, that lie may Himself hasten the days when Be will again smile on us. Ood grant, also, that the rnlers of the earth whom it much imports that Bach a pernicious ex ample of usurpation as we endure may not take root and flourish to the destruction of all power and order may join with one consent of minds and wills, and that hushing quarrels, the disturbances of rebelliOLS being appeased and the deadly coun sels of the sects abandoned, they may nnlte in one movement for restoring to this Holy See its rights, and with these his full liberty to the visible ueaa or tne unurcn, ana tne aesirea cairn to civu Boclety. Nor less, venerable brethren, plead with the divine mercy in your prayers! and lu those of the launiui mat tne nearts oi tne wicnea, escaping irom the blindness of tbelr minds, may be converted be fore the great and fearful day of tne Lora snail come, or else that He, in crashing their Infamous counsels, will show how foolish they are who strive to overtnrow tne tock mat unrisi nas set ana to vio late His divine privileges. On these prayers onr firmest hopes in God are founded. "Think ye that God can tarn away His ear from His most aear s posse wnen sne snail nave cnea out to turn while resisting these who have been torturing her? Bow will Be not recognize the bone of ills bones and the flesh of his flesh ay, rather In some sense, the spirit of His Spirit? Now, indeed, la the hour of malice, and the power of darkness. But the honr is the last, the power is quickly passing. Christ is with us, the power of God and the wisdom of God, and the cause Is Bis. Have confidence, Be has conauered the world." St. Bern. Ed. Meantime, witn great courage ana sure mun, lei us follow the voice of eternal truth, which says : Strive for Justice, for thy soul ; and even to death fight for Justice, and God will overthrow thine ene mies for thee. Finally, venerable brethren, praying to tiod from our heart for the richest blessings of heavenly gifts on you, and on the faithful, clergy and laity, com mitted to your care, as a pledge of onr especial and intimate love to you and to them, we impart to you, and to the same our beloved children, most lovingly, the Apostolic ueneaicuon. liiven at itome, at ou reier a, on me mm oi juay, A. D. 1871 the twenty-fifth of oar Pontificate. THE FUTURE OF FRANCE. m Her Only Hope of Salvation a Republic. General de Trobriand, U. 8. A., who has Inst returned from France, says: Every thine in politics In France now is quicksand an unsafe- Btantlai,'ttreacnerous mixture oijtraaiuonai lueas, private interests,, prejudices and irrational theories and in all this conglomeration of feelinz there is no solid ground to build any' thine permanent. All may depend on accident. 1 do not believe that legitimacy wiu do restored, mainly because ail the cities are strongly op posed to it and Inclined toward a republic. The strength of that party is the old families in Brittany and the south or, ranee. The clergy are also favorable to legitimacy in those sections of France, looking to it as their best protection. The peasantry of France are as a mass eminently ignorant, prejudiced, and selfish. Those who are In the hands of the priests would vote whatever they are tola or do anything else blindly for the restoration of a prince, for no other reason than that they were told to Qo so. At mis moment, u a pieoiscite were proposed, a very large number of peasants would vote for the empire, knowing absolutely nothing ef anything concerning national con cerns. As for the republicans in the cities, a certain number of them are good, liberal, and intelligent men, but they are in the minority. A large number of the republicans of France are Impracticable men. The monarchs will never admit a d ltterence between one sort of republican and the other. Their constant cry has been of 1 ate, ''Yon will see now impossible Is a repabllc In France. AS soon as we nave a republican government you will see what it will do by what Is going on in Paris" (alluding to the Com munists). So, although the Communists in Paris were fighting the republican government the monarchists always say that it is impossible to have a republic, because the republicans are incapable of forming and maintaining It. But I consider the only really posslbU chance of salvation for France Is In the republican form of government. I do not think either of the claimants lor the crown can do much, becaase, as soon as one of them gets even an apparent chance, the others will immediately unite against blm with the republicans. I do not believe much in the fusion of the two branches of the Bourbon family. Yon cannot have any idea here of the deep demoralization of the people of France under the Imperial Government. It was a worse gov ernment than ever France had before. But there is no fear of Its restoration. Although many of the peasants are in favor of it, their master has rone, and thev have no leaders, no officials to lead them to the polls and tell them I what to vote; consequently they are like sheep withoat a shepherd. THE WALLOWS. Terrible Double Execution In Arkansas- One of the Criminals Makes a Deadly As sault on a Jailer Rioting at the Jail The Prisoners Overpowered and Dragged to Death. The Memphis A valanche of the 10th Instant has an article which we condense as follows: The first indlcial execution which ever oc curred in the county of Crittenden, Arkansas, opposite Memphis, since it was organized, took place yesterday. The wretched victims of the scaffold were John Koseborough, who was con victed at the last term of the Judicial Circuit Court of the county of the murder of William Freeman, last Christmas eve, about a mile from the town of Marlon, between four and five o'clock in the afternoon; and Henry Harris, who was convicted at the same term of the court of the murder of John Bell Crockett, at Bradley's Landing, about twenty miles above Memphis, on the 24th day of December last. The execu tion was witnessed by nearly fifteen hundred people, the great majority of whom were colored. ROssBonotron ahd ma wife. Koseborough 1s wife, a young colored woman about twenty years of age, with heavy features of the true African stripe, came through the yard, accompanied by Sheriff Hardin. She was told she could have a lew minutes private con versation with her husband, and she approached the bars of the inner door. SCENE OF TERRIBLE EXCITEMENT. Half an hoar previously an assistant turnkey named T. C. Manns had entered the corridor for the purpose of guarding the culprits. Mrs. Roseborough had not been in conversation with her husband more than five minutes when SCREAM UPON SCREAM came from the place between the doors in which she was ensconced, mingled with cries of Sheriff Hardin! Hardin! Hardin!" The great est commotion ensued, the Sheriff rushed to the spot, Mrs. Koseborough half rolled down the steps in front of the door, shrieking and . trem bling with affright, while at the open barred door appeared Manas, the tnrnkey, with the lower portion of his face and his white shirt all COVERED WITH BLOOD and an ugly gash in his upper lip, which was literally cut in twain. The door was quickly unlocked by the Sheriff, and Manas leaped out, bespattering the portals of the door with his blood, like a person escaping from a den of en raged animals, while the two culprits retired to the upper part of their cell. Man us was taken into the kitchen, where Dr. Grigsby examined his wound and pronounced it not of a very serious character, although it was Dieeding profusely, it was then ascertained mat Manus had made some remark while Kosebo rough was talking to his wife, and that indi vidual turned round in a passion and shied a half brick in his face, inflicting the wound above referred to. It is not known whether his wife banded the missile to him through the bars, but certain it is that she exhibited the greatest anx- letv to pet outside as soon as possible. Above all the confusion which ensued Harris was heard shouting frantically in the cell: "I am an inno cent man, and by the everlasting God you will never hang me'. I WILL NEVER GO ON THAT SCAFFOLD. I will be shot down first in my tracks." He was excited and nearly frantic, and with Kosebo rough had retired to the upper end of the corri dor, where, like a coupie oi wiia Deasts tasnea into fury, they stood at bay. The Bheriff evi dently regretted that be had taken the handcuffs on nis desperate prisoners, wnicn ne oniy naa done out of genuine kind-heartedness, being anxious to make the men feel as comfortable as possible. He called for half-a-dozen volunteers to enter ana secure tne men. v oiunteers steppea promptly forward. They etnppea on tneir coats ana ieanessiy en tered the corridor, accompanied by 8herlff Hardin and his brother. The officers had not been a couple of minutes inside when the noise as of a fearful scuflie was heard inside the cor ridor, mingled with the cries of "Down with them!" "Don't shoot them!" "Keep them down!" In another couple of minutes Koseborough came tumbling down the steps, securely guarded, with his hands securely strapped behind his back. He was followed by Harris, strapped and guarded in a similar manner. Sheriff Hardin then said, turning to Kosebo rough, "John have yon anything to say to the crowd if bo, you can say it now. i win give you fifteen minutes." CONFESSION OF ROSEBOROUGH. I have tried all I could to get clear of this punishment; but I have not been able to do so, ana x win now ten yon ail nere mat I AM THE MAN THAT DID THAT MURDER. (Sensation.and loud cries of "oh! oh!" mingled with groans.) Yes, I am the man that murdered old man Freeman, and I cannot say whether he has gone above or below. I did what I could to save my life, but the Bible says that he that slays shall be slayed again. Ah, poor me, I mur dered that poor old man lor his money, and I must die. I DID IT WITH AN AXH. (Great cries of "Oh! oh! oh!" and "God have mercy on your bouI," "amen," etc.) Yes; I did it with an axe. To do this, and to tell this, is bad; but I must tell It. Let me tell yon, sisters and brothers, not to depend npoa any one, but to depend on Goa, wno wui take care or. you (Cries, "Yes be will. Bress de Lord.") If I bad done so that murder would never have been done, and I would not have been here to-day. I tried to escape getting this rope around my neck. Now 1 wish to tell you colored folk what will do them good. I want yen to put your trust in uod and not in man, ana DON'T TRUST TOUR WIFE when you go to do wrong. The Sheriff will not allow me to speak any more. HARRIS PROTESTS INNOCENCE. narrls rose no from Ms Bitting position, say ing: Mr frionds. I am innocent of the deed which has been put npon me. It has troubled me a great deal, bo that I could not pray, and it seemed as if I had no friends in this world. I go with all my Bins on my head, but I believe I will GO INTO EVERLASTING LIFE. ("God bless you." "Amen." "The Lord breesyou.") 1 tell you I am innocent; God knows that I am innocent, but the people will not believe it, and therefore I can tell you I welcome death. (Sensation.) I would like a new trial on this case. tor I am an Innocent man. Sheriff Hardin intimated that his time was up and Harris sat down. All were calling on God together for mercy, as the Sheriff, poised a sharp axe in his hand At the word l'amen," he raised the axe, aBd with a firm, well-directed blow he severed the rope which held the end of the trap. THE "DROP" FELL like a flash, the wretched men descended with a "thud" and rebounded back. For a couple of minutes there was a strong muscular action of the knees of both, twitching of hands and shrlnkinsr of the sheuldera. Three minutes later the hearts ef both ceased to beat. The newest variety of lager is called "A echt Importirtes BrannscLwelger Doppel Bier." In an Ohio school celebration, the superin tendent announced the title of a song as "Riding the Elephant Home." When the audience found that it was "Write me a Letter from Home." he thought it prudent to disappear. There is one sensible Yankee girl in London. She was the champion skater last winter.

I Fxelvrtwly to The Eteninn Telegraph. Particulars of the Awful Coolie Ship Dis aster. New York, June IS. A San Francisco spe cial plves the particulars of the burning of the ship Don Juan, which left Macao on May 4 with a cargo of coolies for Tern. The Don Juan loaded at Macao, taking six hundred and fifty coolies on board for Peru, and on the Cth was burned to the water's edge, not more than fifty miles from Hong Kong. The coolies, who have arrived In Hong Kong, all aver that their treat ment was humane, and they had nothing what ever to complain of either as to the allowance of food or the quality or quantity, and the whole affair was simply accidental. The other view in the question, namely, that the Vessel was Set on Fire by designing men among the Chlnese,ls not Im possible. One of the men distinctly avers that he heard an explosion of gunpowder aft, and also smelt a strong smell of it. Others again say they did not hear any report; that they were nearly overpowered by the sickening smell of the ship's material burning aft. It Is to be re gretted that the European who had the hu manity to open the hatches did not succeed in saving his own life, as he was overtaken by the coolies, who made a rush at the boat waiting for blm, and a general scramble occurred to get to it, the Europeans using arms to prevent the coolies getting into it. In this scramble several Chinese were drowned. The boat, however, ultimately succeeded in getting clear of the ship, but had not gone far when It upset in sight of but not within reach of the coolies. The coolies then seem to have had a little leisure to look around, when they observed the other three boats at a distance. Daring this time all the materials of the ship were ra pidly burning, and A Large Number Perished In the hold, some of whom, no doubt, were suf focated, but the cries from others were piteous. Many, however, jumped in the water and escaped by drowning the more Horrible Death by Fire. 'While the luckless men were on deck and on the bowsprit in this position one of the masts fortunately gave way, and the men at once made a rush and scramble to reach it; they clang on with desperation, calling as loud as they could to save their lives. They had not been long in the water before a fishing junk came up and they were taken off, two or three at a time, in a small sampan. The mast was held on the wreck by wire rig ging, and would otherwise have drifted away to sea. The coolies state that there were no less than Fifty Europeans on the Vessel, bo it remains to be Been what became of them. Some, no doubt, were lost In the boat that was swamped. From Macoo, it is reported that thirty-five of the crew have arrived there, and are unanimous in stating that the - Coolies Mutinied and set fire to the ship aft, in hopes of forcing all to abandon her, and bo take the vessel. It seems they thought the fire could be extinguished afterward. Cataeazy and Fish. The Tribune 6ays: We are conclusively as Bured that the statement from the Evening Post afllrmlDg that M. Cataeazy, the Russian Minister at Washington, had written home a letter dlj paraging the Hon. Hamilton Fish, and charging him with various misdemeanors, is unfounded, and the alleged letter a forgery. The relations of Mr. Fish and M. Cataeazy, official or per eonal, have always been cordial and intimate, and no word of difference has ever marred them Departure of a United States Minister. 1 1 Hon. John M.

The Wife of Professor Henry Falls Down a Flight of Stairs and Sustains Serious Injuries. The Washington Patriot of yesterday says: The community will no doubt be pained to bear that the wife ot Professor Henry, Secretary te the Smithsonian Institution, met with a sad accident on Saturday night, the result of which will confine bar for a long time to her room, if not permanently isjure her for life. The par ticulars, as near as could be ascertained, are as follows: About 11 30 o'clock, after the family bad retired, she bad occasion to pass from her bed,-cbamber to a room across tbe passage, and in reaching which she was compelled to pass tbe upper landing of a flight of steps which lead from tbe front east door to the second story of tbat portion of the building used as the resi dence of tbe family. The gas had been turned off, and, groping her way in the darkness, she unfortunately walked directly to the steps, fall ing down the entire flight, some twenty in number, breaking ber cellar-bone, right arm, and wrist. Her cries and groans aroused the inmates of the house, who soon went to her assistance. She was removed to her room, and yesterday Drs. Tyler and Morgan set the broken limbs. The wounds are quite painful, but, under the circumstances, her condition at a late hour last night was comparatively easy. Death at 'Work Among the Executive itorses. The Patriot also has the following There is new trouble In the Executive stables. One of the Executive horses is dead, having gone tbe way of all horseflesh two or three days history commonplace by becoming the victims of diseases common to plebeian animals. It will be remembered haw, two years ago this sum mer, a valuable Executive blood mare departed its horse life suddenly and mysteriously, and nnder circumstances fraught with so much of deep Interest to the Executive stud, as that the entire Surgeon-General's office was summoned to an investigation of the cause, and a learned chemist was empioyea to dou aown tne animai s bowels, with a view to possible poison, and, iol they louna "Doiia:" This time it is a brood mare that nas created a vacancy in the executive stua, ana again a mystery is connected with her "taking or! ." The animal aiea 01 a aisease nunerto un known to the veterinary practice, and which, for want of a more technical name, must be called "sore tall." Strange as it may seem, the mare, while apparently enjoying the best of health, being In excellent condition, was seized with "sore tall." me appendage Droao out an over with scab, the flowing hair dropped off, the scab became a running sore, and bo weak ened tbe system that no medicament could bring lelief. A handsome and valuable three- year-old colt, the offspring of the recently de ceased mare, is now nnder treatment for the same disease. The latter case was subjected to rigorous poulticing and steaming on the first appearance of the "sore tall," and hopes are entertained of a cure, though such a consum mation ia by no means certain. Jeff Davis, the fine two-year-old Hambletonlan colt, ana CincinnatuB are kept as far from tbe apartment of the sick aBimal as the limits of the Executive stable will admit, and care is being taken by the hostlers, who are careful and practical grooms, to prevent the "sore tall" from spread ing any lartner. ; !;.
