(Correspondence of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin.
Pants, Tuesday, April , 20th, 1869.—There is
evidently a bitch In the Belgian business, and the
matter is not likely to be brought to a conclusion
as soon as was expected by either party, or by
the public In general. The position of the affair
at the present moment appeaie to be simply this:
When M. Frere•Urban, the Belgian Mixtiater,..ar-..
rived In Paris, he bad presented to Irlat,.by the
French Government, proposals of arrangement
based upon the conventions already made , be
tween the French Eastern and the Belgian
Railway Companies, with only some alight
modifications in the conditions thereby entered
into. But this did not suit M. Frere-Orban' 6
book at all, nor , the views of his government or
country. He therefore demanded to put in a
counter•projeet of agreement Of, his min; and
when he did so, two days ago, it was found to
consist of proposals for arrangement based, not
upon the conventions between the Railway Com
panies above mentioned, but upon the very bill
passed by the Belgian Chamber in such halite.
on the 28d of February last, to prohibit,
by An ez
,post facto act of legislation, those Iden
tical conventions from being carried out. • Here,
then, was a complete misunderstanding : the
parties wore far as the poles asunder; and might
as well have stayed at home, as attempted to
meet and come to terms on these grounds; for
each of them started from a different basis of
their own. The incident is carious, and proves
how necessary it is for parties in these and similar
diplomatic negotiations to have a common basis
before starting. if they wish to arrive speedily a t
any definite conclusion.
Since the above divergence manifested Itself,
there has been a good deal of official fuse, and
runnings to and fro, and meetings at this minis
try anti that, but I don't think there is the least
reason to be alarmed, or to apprehend ttic
march of a French army upon Btu/sets just yet
The fact is that the big power, in this case, ha'
the worst of it. For France feels, and is per
fe etly aware that Prussia must feel, too, that the
more she bullies Belgium the worse for boreall
and the better for Prussia. If ever the struggle
does come between the two nationalitia,
on either side of the Rhine, It
will be an Immense advantage to either of them
to have an advanced position, like Belgium,
decidedly predisposed in their favor. If France,
tterefore, were to be too hard upon Belgium
I ow, she would only throw her more and more
into the arms of Pruteia, and make an enemy o
ter against the evil day. The Belgians are an
acute people, and perfectly understand their
position in this respect, and the advantage It
Etvee them. They are moreover, somewhat vain,
ut indeed they have good right to be. of their
prosperity and liberty, so superior to those of
their big neighbor; and are not sorry
that "little Belgium" should be making .
seise in the world and keeping the eyes of all
Europe fixed upon her. I trust. however, they
will be prudent and not go too far, and remember
that if they were to provoke a conflict their
country must Inevitably be made the battle
ground. But I have no doubt the affair will be
arranged by mutual concessions.
Besides the dotation of the old soldiers of the
Empire, we are to have all sorts of doings in
celebration of the Centenary of the birth of the
First Napoleon. The usual fete of the 15th of
August is to be extended this year
over three days, from the 14th to the 16th
The arrangements for the festivities have already
been placed in the hands of Marshal Valliant
Greed Marshal of the Palace and Minister of the
Emperor's Household, and there is no doubt that
the cfilcial programme on such an occasion will
to on the grandest scale. Now is the time, there
fore, for those who have never seen a French fete,
and wish to do so to perfection, to make up their
maids to a trip to Paris in the summer. The oc
casion will be unique; for everything will be done
to take advantage of the opportunity for roving
the enthusiasm of the people to the
utmost in savor of the dynasty. The
Intention of going to Corsica, if ever eeriously
entertained, seems to be abandoned, the presence
of the Emperor being, no doubt, deemed neces
sary in the capital at such a moment. The
Prince Napoloon has just left Paris for Marseilles,
vthere be embarks on board his yacht for a
cruise in the Adriatic. It has been very much
remarked here that, previously to going away,
the Prince gave several grand dinner parties at
the Palais Royal, to which all the principal mem-
ncra of the Opposition were invited, and formed,
indeed, the chief guests. He is an " artful
dodger," the Prince Napoleon Jerome, and is not
generally supposed to entertain a very high idea
of the stability of the existing state of things.
Perhaps he thlnke It as well to look ahead, and
make friends with the "men of the future" in case
of accident. At all events the incident I mention
has been much commented upon in private
French circles. I forgot to mention that among
ether things spoken of to he done in commemo
ration of the approaching centenary,is a triumph
al car and six horses in bronze, with a statue
of Napoleon 1.. which, it is said, the Empero r
proposes placing on the summit of the Are de
l' Etoile.
Yesterday tho Emperor completed his 61s
year, but no official notice is taken of the eventt
Only,a grand dinner happened to be given at the
Tuileries in honor of the Prince and Princess
Charles of Prussia, brother and sister-In-law of
the King, who are now In Paris; and as her Ida-
J, My the Empress hold hor usual weekly recap-
Lion the same evening, the Emperor received the
compliments and felicitations of the company on
the occasion. Who Emperor looks hearty enough
in the face, but ho now stoops a good deal, and
carries his head on ono side In a way which indi
cates increasing ago and infirmity.
The Duke d'Aumale's book, entitled the His.
Loire des Princes de Condi, and which was seized
acid confiscated at the printing office, some six
years ago, by M. de Porsigny, then Minister of
the Interior, just as it was going to be published
—appears at last this day. The Duke's lawyers
have fought the government through all the
courts of law, and have at last compelled it to
give in and withdraw its opposition. The seizure
was, no doubt, grossly illegal Etna arbitrary, and
one of those acts of over-zeal which such men
as M. de Persigny are apt to commit,
and which always end by doing more harm than
good to the cause they profess to support!' The
work is highly spoken of, and, of course; the cu
riosity of the public to read it is just in propor
tion to the length of time they have been pre , "
vented doing so.
The only business doing in the Chamber is the
Budget, which, as the iSiecie remarks, though
amounting to nearly two thousand live hundred
millions of money, is being voted:at railway
speed, because the deputies are tired and only
thinking about their own re-election. The elec
tions are spoken of for the end of nest month,
and the immense efforts making by the Prefectir
all uver the country show that they consider the
conflict, to be near at band.
f , cene In Christ Church New pork--
Processions,Gennfierions,and Novel
Ceremonies in an Episcopal Temple
—2lie Sacred Edifice In Darkness.
[From the New York Sun of this morning.]
When George Francis Train shouted "Hurrah
for Progress," be Struck a key -note which ap
pears to have found a response in the lay and
ecclesiastical heart of the country. The magic
word Is moulding everything Into new forma,and
the ceremonies of the church militant are no ex
ceptions to the rule. This Interesting fact had
a roaring illustration yesterday morning in
Lilllit Church, Fifth avenue. The rector boldly
announced, six months ago, that Proteatantism
was a failure; and the Tyngs, the Canfield!), the
Dyers bad scarcely recovered from their wonder
at Bishop. Potter's love for his liigh Church
brethren, when the Ritualists threw a bomb
thell into their ranks, and it exploded in triumph
j ea terday.
An astoclation was formed about a year ago in
Christ Church, styled the Guild of the Holy
Lross. The principal members of Dr. Ewer's
congregation approved the objects of the organi
zation. and were duly enrolled as modern Cruse
errs. Their fundamental duty was to promote
reverence toward the "noble tree," and unite in
tbe ceremonials designed to honor the Masa, ac
,:ording to the formulas in St. A.lbsn's Chapel.
‘i ben the purposes of the association had been
coiled abroad, it received new accessions. It
bar, therefore, become wealthy and powerful.
lis proce‘dings have been conducted in secret,
lor the leaders are disinclined to any publicity.
tine of the reporters of the Bun, however, knew
f the existence of the association, and attended
its anniversary. On entering the church he found
in which the select circle of visitors had to "feel
their way" to the pews In the various aisles. The
..ecasion was de signed to commemorate the mini
\ emery of the Guild, and the ceremonies were in
ir adt.d to be "strictly confidential," so at least
-tild the programme. After the worshipper had
.rcped over the mosaic paths to the transept, a
w lights on the altar were faintly visible. bat
be great come of the temple was black with cc
,. itelahtical gloom.
Soon the organist relieved the sepulchral mo
,,otony by performing a voluntary, and then
ouuds of antiphonal chants were heard in the
~stance. The procession approached nearer and
nearer, until the great doors at the entrance
tre rolled back, and a column of a remarkable
cLaructer entered in the following order :
Acoisle carrying a Cross.
Members of the Choir of the Church.
The Reverend Clergy, with Crosses.
Chief Master of theGoild in a cassock.
Fellows of the Guild, in dark gowns and chasn-
Bebordimate officers of the Guild, in otssocks and
red chaeubles.
Members of the Guild, in dark gowns and gray
All the members of she procession wore large
red crosses on their vestments. In this order
hey passed down the side and up the central
aisle to the chancel.. Then they filed off to the
, ewe near the transept, and the clergy moved on
:o the altar.
Prayer and the Litany were read, after which
,mother procession moved from the sacristy to
the chancel, composed of priests in gorgeous
vestments of cloth and gold bullion, with mag
nificent ecclesiastical designs. This digntled
c , ody now entered the chancel gates. At this
moment all the crusaders prostrated themselves
and made genuflexions before a massive cross
which ream' : its stately head high above the
anper-altar. The priests, three in number,
were the hats (berrettas) supposed to be
peculiar to the Catholic clergy. Mass was
then sung by the celebrating priest, acolytes
providing him with the elements at the epistle
aide of the al!ar. Alter offering the "eucharistic
Pacriftee" the chief priest made numerous germ-
H& xions before the cross, and his example was
!allowed by all the crusaders in the church. He
then kissed two books, one representing the Old,
the other the New Testament, which were pre
,•ented to him by acolytes. He then adminis
tered the Holy Communion, beginning with the
priests. and distributing the sacred element] to
,he Guild in the order of their rank.
When all the crusaders had communed, one of
the reverend clergy shed some light on the sub
it et. He said that the Guild represented a new
movement in the Church; and it was only be
ginning its good work. No one, he said, should
despair if the Guild had not done all that the most
squguine had expected or the most ardent hoped.
Lie would tell his hearers, for their encourage-
ment, that only one hundred and twenty persons
i•rufeseed to have believed in Christ himself after
file mission of three years on the earth. If the
rest cause in which they were engaged were not
of God It would not prosper—lt would come to
❑aught. Ho felt assured, however, that they
would progress until the great objects of the
Guild had been accomplished.
The clergy and crusaders then sang one of the
hymns of the Guild, thus :
Faithful Cross 1 above all other,
One and only noble Tree !
None In foliage, none in blossom;
None In fruit thy peers may be;
Sweetest wood and sweetest iron,
Sweetest Weight is hung on Thee.
The chief priest then pronounced the benedie
tion, and the Guild separated.
Mattering prospect of Cuban Affairs
—.Negotiations for the Purchase
of the Peruvian nonitorti—American
Gunboats for the Cuban Navy.
The Washington correspondent of the New
York Herald contains the following :—Vir.
Domingo Ruiz, the Cuban Envoy to the United
States, returned to this city to-night after a few
weeks' absence, which was spent in visiting dif
ferent parts of the country in the interest of hie
canoe. Mr. Ruiz declares that so far from the
Cubans being in a weakly condition they
aro really stronger now than at
any time since the commencement of their
revolution. Despatches have been received by
Mr. Ruiz from Cespedes, which represent the
state of affairs as being in the highest degree
cheering. Thousands of arms and two thousand
men, among were two hundred American anti
leriste, have recently reached Cuba in safety, and
fresh supplies are leaving Mexico and the United
States almost every week. Mr. Ruiz states that
the Spaniards aro very much mistaken in suppo
sing that the Cubans will permit them to remain
idle during the warm season. Ceepedes Intends
to force the Spanish troops to fight
during the sickly season, and will per
mit them to take no rest until they consent to
leave the country or are taken prisoners. In this
hind of warfare the Cubans will have an immense
advantage, being proof against the heat and the
fever, while the Spaniards must naturally fail
victims to both. In about a month Mr. Ruiz ex
pects to receive intelligence from the Cuban agent
sent to Peru announcing the successful negotia
tion of the purchase of two Peruvian iron-clads.
Mr. Ambrose Vallento who has undertaken this
business, has been given fall power, and, no
doubt is entertained about • his, complete sue-
C4:88. The" cOrtditlollB 'will be' that nci'money
need be paid for the monitors until after the
achievement of Cuban independence. The moni
tors are quietly awaiting at St. Thomas the con
clusion of the purchase, and it is said that they
are ready to start on their mission of dastrection
at twenty-four hours notice. Besides these two
monitors the Cuban Envoy here hopes soon to
be able to despatch three of the fastest vessels in
our navy to Cuba. These three vessels, which
include the Hornet, now lying at the Philadel
phia Navy Yard, will be purchased by Cuban
gentlemen and private parties and
then transferred to the Cuban gov
erment. in this Way the interna
tional difficulties will be got over. This arrange
ment meets with the approbation of our govern
ment. The Secretary of the Navy - has 'Wormed
Cuban gentlemen who consulted him on the sub
ject that otir government is ready to sell vessels
to anybody willing to purchase, inasmuch las
Congress has by enactment provided for a de
creue In the force of the navy, thereby rendering
the sale of several vessels of war obligatory. et
the same time it is given out that oar govern
ment will endeavor to prevent the transfer of
any such vessels to the Spanish government.

Corner of Twenty-terst and lace
There are but few of the great public charitiea
of our city which are more deserving of notice
than the above-named, and none that Is less ob
trusive before the public. Many citizens do not
know its locality,nor even of its existence among
the charitable iD6fiItILIMIS of Philadelphia. It

rarely ever gets into the newspapers. The ob

protector—into crime, her sensitive nature feels
lie degradation , and thence, deserted by her
former companions, and lost to her own better
instincts, Elia plunges at once into in
conceivable depths of sin. "Nor man nor
beast has fallen EU far." If once confirmed in
tier evil habits, her reformation is very difficult,
simply because her ein is the yielding up of the
entire moral tense to vice, intemperance, pro
lenity and all licentiousness. The only mode of
contending with her case is the separating her,
early in her carter, from her wicked companion
ships, and subjecting her, long enough to
-übdue her propensities, if not to change her
heart, to better influences, good example and
moral emotion. Tine is the disease and the
treatment, in a nut-shell. The Magdalen Society
believes In complete reformation, and studies to
make its home comfortable as a part of the

Navlgatlng Salt Lake-The Attempt a
The Salt Lake Reporter of April 24th says :
ho far the experiment of boating on the Lake
bas proved very uninteresting to those making
it at least. The Bret trip of the Kate Connor
from K. T. City to Monument Point demonstra
ird the necessity of building the boat almost
anew and putting in heavier machinery. This
was got through from Chicago about the middle
of February, and another trip sufficed to render
the boiler unserviceable from the nad qualities of
the water used. Still another boiler was put in
and a third trip made successfully, better water
Laving been found on the lake shore. On her
fourth trip the boat was caught in the prevalent
heavy storm, and was obliged to eat loose from
the scow she was towing, which drifted back
towards the starting point. That was the last
we have heard from the enterprise.
There is no doubt of the practicability of navi
gating the Lake, but it must be done by boats of
lamer tonnage, and with more power than the
pioneer in the business, the Kate Connor.
A line of packets plying between Salt Lake
City and Corinne, one leaving eachplace every
morning and making the trip by daylight, would
no doubt pay. Salt Lake, the Dead Sea of the
with its mountain Islands and bidden out
eta. being one of the most noted novelties of the
Rocky Mountains furnishing also a cheap means
of transportation letween the two points, per
haps the cheapest way of getting merchandise to
Salt Lake City until a branch railroad shall have
been built to that town. General Connor's ex
periment has at least demonstrated the feasibility
of such navigation, although it has cost him
The Wrench Cable as Cape/May.
The Cape May Ocean Wave is informed by in
disputable authority that the French Atlantic
Cable Company will land their Shore end at a
point of the beach nearly fronting the new Stock
ton Hotel, at the cape, under the sanction of the
MU passed by • the State Legislature at its last
session. A company to connect with them, au
thorized by the same act, was organized at Cam
den recently, of which A. W. Markley, Senator
rubbins, Attorney-General Robeson and other
a ell known Jerseymen are Directors. The Wave
"We know not by what means or through
whose instrumentality the companies were p u
vniled upon to land their cable at this point, but
that every effort was used to give the control of
this tad into the hands of a Now York corpora
tion we are fully satisfied; and though money was
applied the plot fell through. Of course there is
no telling exactly to what degree, Cape May
will be benefited by thus converting it into an
important seaport, and the grand central point
from which the telegraph will radiate north,sonth
and west, but that it will prove advantageous and
immensely so, the merest numbscull will readily
perceive. From Cape May three main lines will
deviate, ono running across the bay to Levies, on
to Washington, another direct to Philadelphia,
while the third it to extent along the shore north'
of New York. The steamer having - aboard the
cable will sail from France in 'July, so that we
may look for its arrival off our coast in the vary
height of the season.' " ,

—Lotta produced a new drama, entitled Pepina, at
the Arch last night, in the presence of an immense au
dience. The piece is valuable in one respect—lt
serves to chew how wretched a play a man can write
when be Wee. Pepina is a poor specimen of the
slangy drama.. It combines ell the commonplace
street realism of the latter day sensational school, with
some oithe cheap pathos of the old melodrama, and a
little genn'ne fan. It Is indebted to several recent
plays of the same class for many of Its characters and
not a few of Its situations. This is sufficient proof of
its poverty. An author who is reduced to ateating
from Daly and the Great American Play Jerker, had
better be gin life over again in a more hopeful and leas
umbilicus manner. The plece,.bas no plot worth
speaking of; the di:tenement le known with absolute
certainty beige the close of the first act- There are
no possibilities in the drama; everything that hap

written such a play if he had become a demented Daly
and undertaken composition while he was agitated
by alternate fits of frenzy and Weld intervals. Tho
only Intelligible and coherent purpose of the dramatist
seems to have been to give Lotta a chance to 'Espial
her various accomplishments. Recalling in sacrificed
to this ; even common sense—for we have her thrum_
ming a banjo, Dinging "Shinbone Alley" songs, and
dancing "ham fat" and the "walk aronad" in a school
room daring study hours. It is undeniable, however,
that Lotta is, somehow, very attractive even in thes e
absurdities, and despite a certain coarseness which
was grievously frequent last night. A little more
modesty in some of the dancing would bo an agree

11 Lotta would, also, hick less, she would be more
pleasant. Now, she kicks through sentiment and
humor and pathos and anguish and misery and mirth
and despair. She kicks when she laughs; she kicks
when she weeps, when she eats, when she sleeps,
when she sings, when ■he stands, when she walks ,
when she is sick, when she dies, She kicks up, down,
backwards, forwards, across, diagonally and around;
and when the curtain comes down the last thAng seen

under way. This is the kind of thing that finds favor
a ilk the galleries and the canaille, but it to not acting.
It is not the sort of performance that will give the
young lady enduring popularity. She cannot kick
along through life picking banjo strings. After a while
people will tire of this foolery, which, however charm
ing is a pretty, young girl, will be disgusting in a
woman on the eh ady side of ti irty. A fair, fat, and
forty female who kicks, will have to practice the exer

she ought to ahannon this slang-whang,ing businelis—
partially, at least,—sad make some ventures in gen_

—Miss Spasm Genoa anil fief little troupe of gray
eyed and fair skinned ivegium opera-singers, tilled the
Theatre Cemique last niglit with a contented if not
rapturous audience. Little Snean herself, with her
exquisite aquiline profile, resembling that of Victo
ria at the accession, was in her beet spirits, and sang
and played like, what she is, the moat , delightful sou
brette now on our stage. Tier Jessie Lea, in -Shaer
ren's two act opera of which she took the title rele,was
an impersonation of sprightliness, sweetness, melody
end grace. Mr. Whiffin played the country bumpkin,
Gilbert, his original character, with a great deal of
spirit, and kept the house in high good humor. He
was still more inspired, however, in the afterpiece, Les
Peva Apeugles, where he acted a sham blind man with
intense humor; title piece le one of tae gayest follies
perpetrated by Ofrenbach, and will have a sure ran ; it
is in a single act, and represents two "alleged" blind
beggars posting thenuseives on the Pont St. Michel,
and using every effort to drive each other off. It is
flied with the most preposterous and most innocent
extravagancies of French invention. This gay little
piece ie not, as has been am erted, new to Philadelphia
sudieecee. In former pears It has been heard here in
French, and always with favor. Miss Gallon has
done well in setting the English and French piecae
side by side, as they contrast admirably and give die
incites to each other. The music of Jessie Leo is full
of pleasant monels, and the composer has arranged
such a varied succession of solos, duos, terzettoe and
quartettos, and changed his combinations with so
mach liveliness, that the small number of the persouie
Is ably masked. The public will wish to hear this
plessiast brace of operettas a good many times yet. It
is to be hoped that at the repetition to-night. Mr. Kel
leher will be able to contribute his promised interlude
of an English ballad; the substitution last eve ning of
a little blowing hum the miniature orchestra of the
