The General and the Bishop,
The following account of "two moral slaps
in the face," administered by Gen. Goyon, of
the French Army of Occupation in Rome, to
Mgr. Merode, the Papal Bishop, is at once scan
dalous and amusing. We quote from cones
poi/deuce in a recent number of the Paris
"A scene of a grave character has lately
passed at Rome, and one which shows how
greatly the sentiments of certain mew bers of
the Papal Government differ from those of the
Holy Father, who never speaks of the Emperor
without testifying to the gratitude which he
owes to him. In a recent affray between a
French and a Roman soldier, about a woman,
the Frenchman was wounded. According to ex
isting conventions the Pontificial soldier ought
to have been given up to be tried by a French
court-martial, and Gen. de Goyon claimed him.
Mgr. de Merode refused. The General then ap
plied to Cardinal Antonelll, who admitted the
claim, and gave orders accordingly, Mgr. de
Merode still refused. The question was brought
before the Pope, who ordered Mgr. de Merode
to give up the soldier. Mgr. de Merode obsti
nately resisted this sovereign command. He
went to Gen. de Goyon in a state of great irri
tation, and with threatening gestures spoke in
a most insulting way of the Emperor Napole
on. The General then ordered him to be silent
and told him that since he wore a priest's dress
he could not give him a couple boxes on the
ear, but he desired him to consider himself as
haVing received them morally ; and he added
that if he (Mgr. de Merode) would throw off his
frock, he would take off his uniform and was
ready to fight him. Mgr. de Merode took re
fuge in his eccliastical character. The General
answered that in any case he maintained the
moral chastisement, and he at once sent to Fort
Saint Ange for the Roman soldier, who was at
length given up to him."
How A "PlA031" MIZONO Flll. TO Frooss.—
A secession "peace" meeting was commenced
at Borough Hall, in Stonington, Ct., last Fri
day evening, Luther Ripley in the chair. He
appointed a committee of five on resolutions,
of which only one member was a Union man.
A set of resolutions, said to have been prepared
by Ephraim Williams, Jr., late candidate for
secretary of State, was read. They were very
bitter toward the administration, and down on
the "unholy war." On being put to vote they
were voted down almost unanimously.
The secession sympathizers immediately smelt
an uncommonly large mice, seized the lights
and made a stampede for the door, when, (as
the report in the Palladium says,) !•some went
'downstairs head foremost, and some on their
backs, aided hi their flight by a few Union
boots, when two candles were found and the
Aa Isninacers Viou.ssaa.—A young Creole
lady, who was a teacher in Charleston, and had
taken no pains to suppress her Union senti
ments, found it more comfortable to leave than
to stay in her adopted neighborhood, and there
fore she applied at the bank where her little
savings were deposited, but was peremptorily
refused her own until she could produce a cer
tificate from the Vigilance Committee that she
left without any suspicions attaching to her
character, and that the money would not be
used against the Confederate cause.
She was too proud to countenance such bisin
uatiOns upon her motives, and in turn refused
to observe any such formula. Her French blood
gave her a claim upon the French consul, whose
influence secured her her rights. A cause must
be weak indeed that settles its hopes of strength
upon arch unseemly precautions as these.
Issouttos Bascxxn.—A correspondent of the
New York /braid, writing from the Bedford
Springs, narrates the following incident :
"An interesting little occurance took place at
the Springs, a few evenings since. A secession
family from St. Louis came here for safety and
to spend the summer, but made themselves
obnoxious to visitors by the oilensive parade of
their traitorous sentiments. One of the young
ladies of the family p araded the house and
walks with a "secesh' r badge, and at last ap
peared in the ball room with it on. Duringthe
evening she took position with a secession part
ner on the floor for a cotillion, when her els anis
left the floor and was followed by the balance
of the dancers. • Nothwithstauding this rebuff,
she attempted it the second time, with a like
result. Next day, the whole left the
Springs in disgust.
