A Wickedness Denounced.
We recently published the charge of a
Protestant Bishop/of-one of the North
ern dioceses, in which be thought proper
to warn his people against the growth of
the horrible crime of fceticide. In a re
port of a sermon delivered in the Balti
more Cathedral on the 14th, the Catholic
Mirror represents Archbishop Spalding
as saving: -
"Finally the most reverend orator said
that he could scarcely trust himself to re
fer to what was still behind, and was far
worse than all this—an abomination lead
ing to the depopulation and desolation of
the land; to excesses worse than the mur
der of the innocent by• Herod, because
committed not so much through sudden
passion or the motive of cruel ambition,
but with deliberately wicked purpose; a
practice worse, probably, than any ever
generally adopted even among heathens,
but which, nevertheless, was becoming
frightfully common in this enlightened
age and country, and which was even oc
casionally defended as an evidence of
growing enlightenment. •He would not
refer more particularly to a turpitude too
shockinglo think of, one which should
not even benamed among Christians; but
he deemed it a sacred and solemn duty to
give this warning, in general arid sufil-
ciently intelligible language '
these horrible and unnatural excesses re
ferred to were -almost unknown among
Catholics, and were not as yet, thank
God, believed, to have reached this lati
tude, at leaat to any great extent, they
were fast approaching us, and threaten
ing the ruin of our people, body and
soul. He wished to put it on record that
the Catholic Church utterly abhors such
abominations in every form and sha'pe,
and under whatsoever pretext they are
practiced, as an atrocious violation of the
divine commandment, "Thou shalt not
4ikay Spans Over the Ohio.
Roebling, the. builder, thinks
bridges across our great rivers should be
constructed with less 'than five hundred
feet span over the main channel, and that
the length should be governed by local
surroundings, but he is'opposedto struc-
tures on the coinmon trues plan, and
would substltate another, combining the
suspension with the arch and trussplans,
which, he contends, would ensure perfect
safety and durability. He condemns the
common truss bridges, because it does not ,
admit, safely, a length of span Much
greater than tour hundred feet; and be
cause the increase of expense is dispro
portionately great when it exceeds three
hundred feet spars. Mr. Roebling is also
opposed to narrow bridges,and expresses
the opinion that those of. hirty or forty
feet wicitlfare safer; as being less affected
by motionof cars,: or force, of:wind.'

says ; General Grant will conduct hls

PITTSBURGH - GAZETTE : THURSDAY, FE
Turkish shops and Baiiids.
An eastern bazaar is usually conceived
of as possessed of Oriental magnificence:
The reality hardly comes up to tha ex
pectation. They- are quite:eclipsed, I
think, by a modern European street of
well furnished 'stores. Yet I can well
un leratand how in a past age they may
have acquired their reputation, and they
are by no means contemptible displays at
present. The principal one I have en
tered is perhaps half a mile long, with
side issues at right angles, say at an equal
aggregate length. It is of brick or stone,
arched overhead, with windows in the
arches sufficient to admit the light. In
the center is ,a passageway, eight or ten
feet in width, and on either side contin
uous; ranges of shops,,,or stores, as we
should term them. The goods are all
open and displayed, but back of them are
magazines and stories, for . further sup
plies. The avenue was thronged when I
was ( in, one to - three thousand people, I
should judge, being present, and as Turk
ish; trade is carried on with an immense
amount of chaffering, the scene was yery
fide y. Small shops, hardly larger than
si: y eight , or ten feet, -'for - the sale of
,go s, or the use of mechanics, are also
ere through the city . But the
pr', cipa. traffic seems carrxdOn in the
bah ar—those dealing in similar articles
constituting one bazaar.—bt M., 'in
The Last. Donis of a Prince.
Details of lliti moat touchiing nature are
given of the last days of . the young
Prince Royal of Belgium.- His intelli
gence was developed in an extiaordinary
manner, and he was, moreover, posses
sed of a generosity and nobility.of nature
rare at any age. From the 14th to the
hour of his death he was constantly de
lirious, and heat was I ,onlyimaintained by
bags of hot sand, renewed every hour.
In the intervals of delirium his intelli
gence never totally left him. He expired
with his father and mother at each aide of
his bed, in presence of the Duchess of
Ursel, Mistress of the Robes; MM. South
oz and Doines, his tutors, to whom he
was tenderly attached; Drs. Witmer and
Henriette, two Sisters of Charity, and two
servants in attendance; while the King's
chaplain chanted the prayer for the dying.
He breathed One deep sigh and died. The
Queen, who had not quitted his bedside
or changed her dress for fox ty-eight hours,
was carried out of the room in a fainting
state. The King became so frightfully
excited that it was thought that bleeding
would be neceseary. The Prince was
laid 'dressed in white, on the bed on which
he died, a crown of fresh white roses on
the pillow, a statuette of the Virgin at the
foot of his bed, and the toys with which
he last played on the counterpane.
Everybody has noticed the delicate
white bodies of frogs, devoid of their
colored coats and trowsers, stretched out
on ice in the'vrindows of restaurants,
and looking like very diminutive-babies
in primitive costume. The number of
these succulent little fellows that are
daily consumed in this city is not small,
and a large part of their come from the
romantic bulks of the Calumet, south df
the city, employing the services of quite
a number of fishermen. It is said that
some of these experts become - so skillful
that theycan ,tell, in a bed of mud, ex
actly where a frog has burled himself.
As high as five dollars each hai been
paid by our medical colleges in winter
time for living frogs. The reptiles are
used for experiments in galvanism. .As
nothing else will answer, the professor
must have a supply, even if the ice be a
foot thick. The same people who in
autumn ; Lring frogs to Exench restau
rants, procure them in the dead of winter.
When first - taken from the frozen mud
•they are as stiff as the imitations of them
in cast iron that we see in ornamental

Children are qualified bldisings; but
whether altbgether or only partly so, they
are necessary. Wipit sort of a plight sh.mid
we reach In a century or so, without them?
pitiable, no doubt. Then let us - be kind
to the young folks. Let us recollect that
we were once such, and likely enough,,
were just as colsy. rollicking, nonsensic
al, mulish as any that we see about us,
and whom we are apt to censure as a
nuisance. Children are properly never a
nuisance, though sometimes, as in case of
a young gentleman and lady, who like to
be alone, they approach that style. The
worst of children at Such that Is, they
blab any. little tokens orfamlllarlty and
affection whiclu they , observe. "Ps, I
see Mr. Fergu son kiss Aunt Marrlota
in the parlor "or "Mint Mary had her

ire not pleasant to be noised -abroad by
stentorian' lungs. Slightly, a nuisance
then, possibly, but rarely otherwise.
