[Special Dispatch to the Pittsburgh Gazette.)
LONDON. Septemjer 22.—The Ritual

or rescript of Pope. Pius the Ninth, in

Lorinox, September 22.—The Times
/ says the Spaniards have found the ad
vantage of a bold display of patriotism
and national courage. Thek met an im

though their threatened adversary is ten
times more powerful than themselves.
Sickles is manifestly alarmed at the re
eult of hie' proceedings, and has re
quested further instructions Pend
ing a reply from Washington he
'desired to withdraw his note. If this
is the actual case, Spain shows her own
fearlesness, which may savor of -anrea

driven to extremity, she will fight. No
doubt she will, MU/ for her to gain any
advantage by doing so is out of the ques.
-tion. But as the matter stands she.will
lose less by war than her adversary.
America may fairly decline an easy vic
tory on such onerous and political
terms. The people and government of
Spain are resolved not to part with Cuba
without a struggle. A contest could only
result in the sacrifice of Cuba, coupled
with other, but with slight loss. Sickles
expected no such resistance as his note
provoked. Possibly in the face of such
' opposition. his proceedings may be qual
ified or repudiated by his Government. It

America cannot be responsible for his

probable the American Government will
interfere any further in Cuban affairs.

After the return of the President this

was expressed to ascertain the character
of the conference, the supposition being
that it had reference to our relations with

no anti:irily for the positive , asser

no action was taken on the premises.
It is already known that some time

The National Convention called by the

Its object is to ameliorate the condition
of the Irish immigrant in this free

this, it is designed to encourage him to

but fertile lands of the Great West, and
secure him and his family • from the

The gentlemen who originated and
who are now endeavoring to carry out
this benevolent project, are actuated
only by disinterested motives. They
have received the approval of a large
number of the distinguished prelates
and clergy, art well as that of many
of the prominent laymen of the
Union. It is- therefore groped that all
to whom the success of the cause is dear
will interest themselves so far as to see
that their city and State ere represented.
This hope is expressed particularly to
the Irishmen of the Eastern and Middle
States, and even more especially to those
residing in the great State of New Yorit.
The number of delegates is not-lim
ited for any city or State. In conclu
sion, we say that the benificent results
to be expected from this great cause
should inspire every Iriehmse through

Massachusetts Republican Convention,—
Speech of Senator Sumner—Patriotic
By Telegraph to the Pittsburgh Gazette.)
WORCESTER, MASS., September 22.
The Republican State Convention met
this morning, The attendance was large
and enthusiastic. Hon. Chas. Sumner
presided and made an eloquent speech.
The entire State ticket was re-nominated
by acclamation, with the exception of
State Auditor, the name of Chas. Endi
cott,.of Canton, being substituted for that
of the present incumbent.
Dr. Loving made a speech at the cau
cus held on Tuesday night and claimed
that-the Republicans of to day were the
same as when they sustained the Chicago
platform and insisted that the promises
of that platform for citizenship, free
suffrage and the honest payment of the
national debt were being carried out
through the administration of General
Grant. The result was witnessed in
the development of the recources of the
country and its general peace and pros
perity, He favored Chinese suffrage, and
advocated a close union in the ranks of
the party.
Senator Sumner, in the cenrse of his
speech to the Republican State Conven
tion, said: In our foreign relations there
are with me two cardinal principlel
which I have no'hesitation to avow at all
times—first; Peace with all the world.
Second: Sympathy with all strugglink
for: human- rights. In. this spirit he
would now approach Spain. He
traced the history of that country.
Speaking of - the patronage which ena
bled Columbus to discover this now
world, of all the possessions once held
in tats country, Cuba and Porto Rico
alone remain; and Cuba is now in arms
against her mother country. While
Spain' is struggling to hold the
little that remains to her in this
new world; two questions occur,
diet, as to the duty of Spain,
and second, as to the duty of the United
States. Quoting from a French states
man the words uttered in 1850, he said
that colonies are like fruits which hold
to the tree only till maturity comes,
when they will do what Carthage did,
and what America will some day do.
The speaker questioned whether Cuba
has not arrived at that state of
maturity. The day has come, he
said, when the sovereignty of
any foreign power over the colonies
on this hemisphere must cease. [Ap
plause.) And yet while Spain has her
duties to pntirm. there remains a dis
tinct policy for the United States, and
that is, of strict non-intervenation ex
cept in • the way of good •ollloes,
Spain is at this moment engaged
in a comedy and a tragedy. The com
edy is hunting for a King, and the trag
edy Is sending armies against Cuba. It
is not for.= to become actors, either in
tie comedy or the tragedy. If Spain is
wise. she will give up both. As to
the queition. of the recognition" of
belligerent rights to the Cubans, I find
no Government, no towns, no cities,
judiciary, ports, or commerce. to au
ttiorlze such recognition. And again
biligerant rights should, never; in the
opinion of the speaker, be accorded, to
any nation or counT whiph does not
recognize the freedo of every man.
On the subject of ur - relations with
England, the speaker said he would
gladly hold his peace. But yielding to
the wishes of his friends, he would speak
briefly. lie had no hesitation in saying,
as he had always said, that we. as a
nation had suffered fearfully at the hands
of England. He did not say this in bit
terness. but in sadness. That in view of
all England's complicity in our rebellion
he would not attempt to set a price upon
the debt which- that nation owes
to us. He would not make any formal
demand upon that power—not a dollar
of money—not a word of apology. He
would leave it to England, upon due
consideration of the subject, to offer
such reparation as she , deepis proper,
and to our country it remains,
upon such a consideration, to decide
what reparation •we shall require.
Mr. Sumner referred to the subject of
the, proposed annexation of Canada to
our own country, and in thelight of his
tory and of property, as well as of na
tional policy, it was certain that the day
was already dawning, in which we
should see the whole land joined under
the government of the United States.

Resolved, That rather than suirender
their deeply laid ideas of duty in the of
ftelal pcsiticn they are placed in, the
Board of Directors will return to their

The following resolutions, offered by
Mr. V. A. Turpin, were also read and in
