We translate and present some extracts
from .Father Hyacinthe’s discourse, pro
nounced before the Congress, of Peace, at
Paris the 24th of June last. The passage which
most scandalised the clerical party is incor
rectly given in the circulated reports, and is
here presented legitimately for the lirst time.
The Father’s extreme liberality in placing
Catholicism, Protestantism,and Judaism on
the same moral level will greatly strike our
readers. The peroration is, in the original, as
remarkable for the magnificence of its styleas
for the elevation of its ideas.
■ “I turn my eyes now toward the Occident.
H ere it is the water which separates us,it is the
great Atlantic Ocean dividing America from
ourselves. But do you see, from the lofty side
of the glorious Leviathan, in our Rade de
Brest, do you see that giant cable falling with
the report of the thunder and the rapidity of
the lightning? It buries itself in the 'depths,
scattering iu its passage the monsters of the
deep and braving the tempests; it stretches
from Europe to America in order to carry, not
messages of war, hut those of peace, aud to
realize the union of the three nations which
form the aristocracy of the world, and which
will be able, on the day when they are wise,
enough to desire it, tg Cause peace to reign'
on our planet^—America, England and
France! •
“To vanquish war * * * it is needful
to read and explain to the world, which as yet
knows them'not, those two great books of the
morale private and the morale public, the book
of the Synagogue, written by Moses with the
flames of Sinai, and transmitted by the pro
phets to the Christian Chnrch, ana then our
own book, the book of mercy, which explains
and completes the book of the law, the I
Evangel of the .Son of God. The I
Decalogue of Moses and the Evangel
of Jesus Christ! The Decalogue, which
pronounces justice, while showing in the j
heights of justice the fruit of charity; the |
Evangel;which pronounces charity while I
showing in the roots of charity the sap of j
justice. Here is what must be affirmed by j
precept and example; here is what must be j
magnified before the peoples and the kings. !
[Prolonged applause.] I thank you for this I
applause, because it comes from your souls, j
and because they are appealing to both
the boobs of God; I accept it in
the name of the two books. I accept
it too in the., name, of those sincere men
whp.standaround themifa Europe and Ameri
ea. For it is. a striking fact that there is place
in the sunshine of civilization over the world j
for only these three religions: Cathblicism, •
Protestantism and Judaism. [New applause], t
Over the cradle of our Lord Jesus Christ
the angels sang in the sweet majesty of Christ
mas night, dory to Godin the highest heaven,
and peace on earth to men of goodwill: and
over the tomb whence he reappeared, the
cradle of our new/life, Christ himself Baid, I
have overcome the world ; peace I give unto
you. The future shall unite the promiso of
the angels to the gift of Christ, the double
'hosanna of his cradle and his tomb. The fu
ture is not for violence; it is for goodness;
and this will he the fulfilment of that ptfcS!&
saying, one of those which jin
fail: H leased are the vieek, for they shall possess
the earth,” [Repeated applause.]
A Description ot' Its Dictator by General
. A Washington correspondent' of the Eve
niiir/ Mail reports the following from conversa
tions with Gen. McMahon :
“At Buenos Ayres everybody who is be
lieved to be frieniuy to Lopez is calumniated.
The attempt to break down the credibility of
every witness is so systematic that it controls
the legations even. lam afraid our Minister,
Mr. Kirke, has so far forgot himself as to assist
in the effort to nun roy credit with mv Govern
ment, which began there and has followed me
here,” President Lopez, according to Gen.Mc-
Mahon, is a man of about 40 years of age, of
middle stature, witty a fifm, well-khit frame,
evidently capable of great endurance. In
complexion, hois dark, like a Spaniard, wear
ing a tail beard. His eyes are penetrating and
lustrous, features strong and marked. He
looks what he is, a man of powerful intellect
and high culture'. He was educated chiefly in
Europe; speaks Spanish, French, Portuguese;
speaks English only tolerably,but understands
it better. He is fluent in the Guarni tongue,
the native Indian speech. He is very well
versed in', history, and especially In modern
politics and affairs;
Fully posted about our affairs, he watches'
matters in the United (states with the greatest
interest, and has a full and complete apprecia
tion of the position not only of parties, but of
our leading public men. He expressed him
self yery anxious that President Grant, Gen.
(Sherman, Senator Sumner, Gefl. Butler,-and
others of whom ho spoke, should become
acquainted witty the true nature >of
the Paraguayan struggle. He under
stood the causes of Gen. McMahon's,
recall, and did not deem it unfriendly to his
cause, therefore. General MeMalion declares
that Lopez expresses the utmost sorrow at the
necessity which drives him into the terrible
war. The General has seen the Paraguayan
president wringing his hands with every ap
pearance. of utmost_ mental anguish, when
speaking On this subject; but he never hesi
tated to declare Ids acceptance of the issue,
believing that in this he was not only fighting
for himself and'his people, but for the other
Republics of South America.
George I’eabody.
AtlU o’clock last night,'at his'residence in
London, died George Peabody, the, eminent
and beloved benefactor of two heuii.splieres.
He was born in 1795. at Danvers, Massa
chusetts, whose • Institute "'and Lihrarv
he lias so munificently endowed, and from
whose people ■ in Ids declining j’ears
he has-, received more than.one tribute Of
, honor and gratitude. He was a grocer’s clerk
at Danvers from 11 till 15, when, after spend-'
ing a year with his grandfather at Tlietford,
in Vermont, he went to Newburyport as clerk
for Ids elder brother, a dry goods merchant.
Next we learn of him in Georgetown,
D. C., whither he went with his uncle after
the burning of his brother’s, store, and there,
conducting the business of his house,although
a minor, his mercantile genius! developed it
self. But, fearing that it he continued busi
ness in his own name he would he held re
sponsible for debts of relatives which he had
never contracted, he withdrew in 1814 to be
come the partner of Mr. Elisha Riggs, in tlie
■wholesale dry-goods trade, that gentleman
supplying the cajpital, the management of
which he coufidecf to the young merchant.
At Baltimore next year the new house
flourished in a large and growing
business, insomuch that in 1822 it coum afford
to establish branches in New York and Phila
delphia. From such beginnings Mr. Peabody
derived the opportunity to make personal
acquaintance wftli Europe in the purchase of
goods, and several times on his transatlantic
journeys was intrusted with afiairs of moment
by the State of Maryland. By the retirement
of Mr. Biggs in 1829 he became the head of his
house, and in 1857 settled in London, four
years afterward withdrawing from the firm of
Peabody, Riggs & Co:, and establishing him
self as a banker. It was then that through
his efforts "faith in American credit, greatly
damaged in the crisis of 1837, was resus
citated and maintained, and that the State of
Maryland was so well favored in transactions
for which he refused any compensation what
ever. His house in London became the head
quarters of Americanism in news and intelli
gence and acquaintance, and in further proof
of his undlmiiiished love of borne and father
land he sent over the water in 1852 a toast for
the bicentennial anniversary of his native to wn
of Danvers: “ Education .a debt from the pre
sent to the future generationand to
pay his share of the debt inclosed
a check for 520,000 to be disbursed in
the foundation of an institute, iyceum, and
library, subsequently endowed to the extent
of hundreds of thousands of dollars, including
a gift for a branch library id North Danvets.
His philanthropy has been exercised in nume
rous instances. The first Grinnell expedition
to the North Pole he gave $10,000; and in 1857
the magnificent sum Of S300;000 was given as
the first installment of $500,000 for the estab
lishment of an institute to promote literature,
science and the arts. His later bounties of
$500,000 to the cause ot Southern education,
increased after the manner of the Baltimore
andfDanvers endowments, are recent and fresh
in matitude. ,
But the scheme of philanthropy which,
from its novelty and extent, will peculiarly
distinguish Mr. Peabody’s princely benevo
lence, is his gift to the London poor. A sum
of t';!so,o«i, or $1,250,000, was invested by him
iii the experiment of alleviating the manifold
distresses of a class of people reared amid all
the discomforts, temptation, and squalors of
that world of a city, the British metropolis.
Four great buildings, known by the name of
Peabody, have, been erected in four of the
poorest quarters of London, and given to the
tenants at small rents.
Mr. Peabody made his last visit to the land
of his birth on June 9, and on the 3d of July
last made his additional gift to the cause of
education in the South. His many benefac
tions won for him an esteem rarely accorded
in Europe to a private personage, yet Mr.
Peabody is believed to have contracted few
very intimate-and earnest friendships among
the English. Sir Emerson Tennant, who
died a year ago, is Said to have been
one of the several Englishmen, who may
be accounted his warm personal friends.
N evertlieless,Mr. Peabody was widely admired
and cordially esteemed. The noble statue of
him made Dythe American sculptor Story,
erected at the expense of London, and un
veiled at a meeting of which the Prince of
"Wales was Chairman, royally and grandly tes
tified to the good work which Mr. Peabody
had wrought in the hearts of those around
him, and to the sentiment which he had
created in behalf of his countrymen across
the water. Not only has London dedi
cated him a statue, out Borne, by order
of its admiring Pope, whose charities
he has. aided, proposes to erect one in his
honor. Mr. Peabody’s face and hearing con
stituted a gracious index of the character,
worth and work of the man. It had the in
telligence of charity as well as of thrift, and
his face was in strict truth an open counte
nance. The good he did liyes alter him, and
nothing of the benevolent spirit which has left
its earthly stage has perished. To repeat the
sentiment of the good English Earl: what he
gained, that he lost; what he gave, that,indeed,
e owns.— Tribune.
An Explanation from John G. Whittier.
Amesbury, 26,10 mo., 1860.— T0 the Editor
of the Standard— De.\u Fiueud : There is a
story told of a worthy deacon, who, when re
monstrated with for sleeping whenhis favorite
monster preached; and keeping wide awake
when others supplied the pulpit, excused him
self by sayiug that when his own minister was
present he had such perfect confidence that
all would he right that he could go to sleep
with a clear conscience, hut when he saw a
stranger in the pulpit he felt in duty bound to
keep awake ana see that there was no heresy
in his discourse.
In regard to my dear friend, Maria Child, I
have the same confidence that the deacon had
in his minister, but there is this difference in
the case, I have never been able to sleep over
her discourses. I know of no one with whom
I more uniformly agree; and as lam always
attracted to her signature, I read with hearty
approval her comments in the last Anti-Slavery
standard upon what she supposes was a letter
of mine to the Newport Convention, but
.wliich was only a very poor photograph of
the same done bv the electric telegraph. By
referring to the ‘letter, correctly printed, it
will he seen that I made no allusion whatever
to “minors.” The sentence under comment
read thus: “But unsupported by a more prac
tical education, higher aims and a deeper
sense of the responsibilities of life and duty,
it is not likely to prove a blessing in her hands
any more than in man’s.”
As the telegraph version.,of my letter was
published in the Standard, will it De too much
to ask that the tiue copy may have a place in
thy columns ? Very truly, thy friend,
John G. Whittier.
„ “Asiesbvry, Mass- 12thi Bth Month,-181)9.
—My Pear Friend : I have received tny letter
inviting me the Convention in- be
half of WOman’s (Suffrage, at Newport, R. 1.,
on the 25th inst. Ido not see how it is pos
sible for me to accept the invitation; and
were I to do so, the state of my health would
prevent me from taking such a part in tlio
meeting as would relieve me from the respon
sibility of seeming to sanction anything in its
action which might conflict with my own
views of duty or policy. Yet I should do my
self great injustice if 1 did not embrace this oc
casion to express my general sympathy with
the movement.
“I have seen no good reason why mothers,
wives and daughters, should not have the
same right of person, property and citizen
ship, which fathers, husbands and brothera
“The sacred memory of mother and sister—
the wisdom and dignity of women of my'owu
religious communion, who have been accus
oined to something like equality iu rights, as
■well as duties—my experience as a co-worker
with noble and selt-sacriflcing women, as
graceful and helpful in their household duties
as they are firm and courageous’in their public
advocacy’ of 1 unpopular truth—the stehdy
friendship which have inspired and strength
ened me—and the reverence and respect which
I feel for human nature, irrespective of sex—
compel me to look with something more
than acquiescence upon the efforts
you are making. I frankly confess that? lam
.not able to foresee all the consequences of tho
great social and political change proposed, but
of this l am at ioast sure, it is always safe to
do right, and the truest expediency is simple
justice. I can understand without sharing the
misgivings ot those who fear that when the
vote drops from woman’s haiuUnto the ballot
box, thebeautj’sanii sentiment, the bloom and
sweetness of womanhood,. will go with it.
Stronger thap statutes or conventions, she
will be conservative of all that the true man
loves and honors in woman. Here and there
may be found an equivocal, tinsexed Chevalier
D’Eon, but the eternal order and fitness of
things will remain. X have no fear that man
will be' less manly or woman less Womnnly
when they meet on terms of equality before
the law.
“On the other hand, Ido not see that the
exercise of the ballot by woman will prove a
remedy for all the evils of which she justly
complains. It is her right, as true as mine,
and when she asks for it it is something less
than manhood to withhold it. But, unsup
ported by a more practical education, higher
aims and a deeper sense of the responsibilities
of life and duty, it is not likely to prove
a blessing in her hands any more than in
“With great respect and hearty sympathy,l
am, very truly thy friend.

Tbe Blutiop and tbe Editors-—A Speech
from tbe Captain-Geuetal-—Colonel
O’DalT’t Testimony.
; Havana, Oct. 30.—His Reverence, Jacinto
Martinez, the account of whose Bishopric
was found $200,000 short before he left us for
Spain, and who, if he profited thereby, has
followed the godless example of his Excel
lency, General Caballero, is supposed
to have been implicated in a.
conspiracy to make the plump Count
Yalmaseda Captain-GeneraL It is not cer
tain that Seiior Gelpi, of the now dying
jPrensa, was his intimate fellow conspirator;
but it seems thatDe Kotlas is wearing out
others as well as being worn out himself, for
Geljti Is going on, and Castanon, the loro of
bloody-minded journalism, the editor of the
ill-written Fez de Cuba, but a man sufficiently
courageous to call the volunteers cowards, is
about to give up the ghost journalistically.
The other day, to a private meeting at the
palace, the Captain-General found occasion to
say: HAffairs in the interior have beoome
worse fbr want of sufficient reinforcements,
and complications at home may prevent a fur
ther shipment of men this way. The collec
tions by customs, confiscations, by the
Spanish Bank, and by gifts have been
absorbed. Some of _ our troops have
been fighting three’ or four months
without anything but the advance made them
before starting; ana now, unless -1 can prove
the rebels routed and subdued before the
meeting of tho Washington , Congress, the
American tide will be ail against us. I need
millions of money at once.” As for
the Tebels, Col. O’Daly, who is here
recovering from wounds, reports that
the Spaniards t give more importance
to the Yankees- and the Junta than the
fighting Cubans do,the latter desiring nothing
so much as arms and munitions, and caring
little for cities or ports so long as they can
operate on the crops and the slaves. Anything
hut a prompt arrangement with the rebels
will, he said, end in the ruin of the island,
since they are well able to carry on the war,
even by themselves.— Tribune.

Mrs. Stowe’s Slander Finally Exter-
Tho latest number of the Quarterly Review,
just published in London, contains seven
letters from Lady Byron to the Hon. Augusta
Leigh, Lord Byron’s sister. They furnish
most satisfactory and conclusive evidence of
the falsity of Mrs. StoWe’s charge against
Lord Byron.
These letters were written} just after tho se
paration. They are full of expressions of af
fectionate kindneafiand esteem. Lady Byron,
in the first of them, writes of Mrs. Leigh: “In
this, at least, lam ‘ truth itself when I say
that whatever the situation may be, there is
no one whose society is dearer to me or can
contribute more to my happiness.” Again,

Mrs. Stowe has just printed a card in which
she asks the public to suspend judgment upon
the contents of these letters until the publica
tion oi' her forthcoming hook on tho Byron
scandal. And for what ? Why are people
asked not to form an opinion on the evidence
in Lord Byron’s favor? Mrs. Stowe volun- 1
tarily assumed the position of a prosecutor.
She arraigned Lord Byron and his pure andin
nocent sister before the world on the hlackest
and most infamous charge she could conjuro up;
and now, after listening to her side of the
case—presented with alfthe care and ability
which the thought of years .could give—we
are asked hot to believe the testimony for the
The trutty is that the weight' of evidence is
so overwhelmingly against her monstrous
accusation that Mrs. Stowe how deems-it ne
cessary to defend herself for making it. In so
doing she might obtain sympathy under other
circumstances,for men will generally side with
a woman who is assailed. But such a position
does not belong to her. She it was who led
the attack, more unsparing of her sex than
any man could he: and she has failed most
conspicuously.. The commandment, “Thou
shalt not hear false witness,” ought, however,
to-have been familiar to her. ’
If she had Succeeded, it is difficult to per
ceive what honor she would have gained. AU
that it is necessary to remember in connection
: with the horrible story is, that after the separa
tionhady Byron wrote to her husband’s sister,
“You have been ever since I knew you my
best comforter, and will so remain, unless'you
grow tired of the office.”— Sun.
Excommunication of Font of the Elders
—The Official Announcement.
The Deseret News, published at. Salt Lake
City, and the official organ of Brigham Young,
prints in its issue for Oct| 2G the following
Toichom it may concern: This certifies that
Win. S. Godbe, E. L. T. Harrison arid Eli B.
Kelsey were cut off from the Church Of Latter
day Saints on Monday, the 25th day of Octo
ber, 1869, by the High Council of Salt Lake
City, for harboriDg and spreading the spirit of
Wm. Dunfokd, Clerk of Council.
Our attention has been called of late to
several articles which have appeared in the
Utah Magazine; a weekly periodical published
in this city. An examination of them has con
vinced us that they are erroneous, opposed to
the spirit of the gospel, and calculated to do
injury. According to the practice in the
chnrch, teachers were sent to labor with the
editor aud publisher, to point out to them the
evil results that would follow a persistence in
the course they were pursuing. This did not
have the desired effect; and they have since
been tried before tho High Council, and after
a thorough and patient investigation of the
ease, it was foirrid they had inibibed the spirit
of apostacy to that degree that they coulu not
any longer he feUowshipped, and they were
cut of}’from the church.
The Utah Magazine is a periodical that, in its
sj'irit and teachings, is directly opposed to the
work of God. Instead of building up Zion,
and uniting the people, its teachings, if car
ried out, would destroy Zion, divide the people
asunder, arid drive the Holy Priesthood from:
the earth. Therefore, we say to our brethren
arid sisters in every place, tbe Utah Magazine is
not a periodical suitable for. circulation among
or perusal by them, and should not be sus
tained by Latter'Day Saints.
We hope this will be sufiieient, without ever
having to refer to it again.

“‘Col. Jcemes Pipes,’ Mr. Stephen Massert,
made a bit with our people' last night, in his
highly amusing budget of fun, sentiment,
song and story. The audience seemed fully to
appreciate his varied programme, and sye only
regret that he so soon leaves us. It is too late
to enter into an elaborate criticism of this
artist’s accomplishments, but this we willsay,
that as a reader, reciter, balladist and imi
tator, he stands unrivalled, and in his peculiar
sphere as lecturer wo have never heard any
one who gives so varied an entertainment.
His ‘Vagabonds’ and ‘Beautiful Snow’ were
gems, and with his charming ballads were ex
quisitely rendered.”
