The Power. of•theload In Ire
A recent number of the Dublin Tablet,
an Irish Catholic journal, calls to account
several of the Irish members of Parliametit
for failing in' their duty to the Church.—
We insert part of the article, as we find it is
the Dublin'correspondence of the Phihtdel
tibia-North American :
"This country Of ours is a Catholic coun
try, the real constituents of it are the
bishops and priests. We take this for;
granted, arid 'we do not see how it can be
questioned. Thorn are of course excep•
tions ;. places where lay influence predomi
nates ; but, on the whole, the Irish repre
sentation is the work of the, priesthood,—
The Irish members are in Parliament be-,
cause the priests have sent them there';
they know It perfectly Well, and the Pro
testants are not ignorant of it. The Irish I
priests are alio the only priests in Europe
or America that

It is in the United Kingdom of Great
Britain and Ireland, in a parliament fierce

virulent hatred of the Christiau religion.
that the priesthood wields this formidable
power. It is to their credit, and to the °red-
it of the people they govern ; it is an hon.
orable tribute to their worth, and to the
excellency of their life. They can do in
Ireland what the priests cannot do in
France., Belgium, or Piedmont ; and
they du 'it openly in the face of the
Government, and no man dares to molest

fifty gentlemen or more sit there by favor

when the Prime Minister abuses the

either from ignorance or malice, the Holy
See. Such is our abjetition and worldli
ness, that we have nothing 'to say when
the Sovereign Pontiff is stupidly reviled.
We fear that this silence does not proceed
from arty Christian spirit of patience ; for
whenever an honorable metriber thinks
himself unjustly mitered he seems never
to sleep over the injury."
This extract deserves more than a hasty
reading. It assorts that Irish Priests di
rectly control Irish polities ; that fifty .
members of Parliament are 'there by favor
of the priests ;" that the real constituents
of these members are the bishops and priests
and that Protestant Britain has a "most
viruleut haired of the Christian religion."

heretics are only fit for the stake.
The Priests control the politics of Ire
land., because they hold the people in ter
ror of their power, and because thus they
can most certainly tidvattee the interests of
the Church, to which they have sworn a
paramount duty. Who doubts that Amer
ica would be as priest.ridden as Ireland,
if our population were as abject, and if the
people would yield to the arrogant de
mands of the Romish Clergy ? Already we
have seen the intentions of Rome, in its
foray upon our Common School System,
and our laws relating to the holding of

The first movement towards'retnefution
in ICutsas has already been:taken. A Con
vention of the People met on the sth
resolved to repudiate utterly the action of
'ha late Legislature, and to resist every
attempt'to inforce its enactments or laws,
and determine to take no part in the eke
tion for Delegate to Congress. ordered by
that body, but to hold an election on their
own authority. They also nominated
Ex-Governor RIZEDKR as their caudidate,
and he accepted the nomination.
it seems certain, therefore, that the eit
izens of Kansas will refuse obedience to
the laws enacted by the late Legislature ;
—that they will refuse to pay the taxes it
has levied, and will resist forcibly any at
tempt to collect them or to punish offend
ers against their enactments. This will
bring about a direct collision between the
people and the Government—for Gover-
nor SHANNON has declared his determina
tion to enforce obedience to those loon ;
and there is every reason to 'apprehend
a civil war, in Kansas, as the result
of the conflict. Nothing can now
prevent, it but but the abject submission
of the people to the usurpation of their
rights, or the abandonment by the Usur
pers of their high-handed scheme's. Of
the latter we have no hope, and of, the for

RUMORS IN REGARD TO THE RUM
The Paris correspondent of the London
Times of Saturday says it is reported that 0.-
000 troops had embarked at Balaklam for tha
north of Sebastopol, who report that the Rue-
Wane there wine in full retreat towards Perekop.
The Paris papers are discussing the question
whether Sebastopol is tenable by the allies
while the Russians ate masters of the forts on
the north side fronting the sea. F .
A despatch from Dantzio of the 14th says
that the Baltic ships of the allies are expectid
to be ordered home Immediately. •
It was rumored in the London clubs that the
allies round 1,200 guns in Sebastopol. Also
that the Russians were falling back on Batch..
aerie, but the French minors say that the Ras
elms certainly would hold the north side of
Sebastopol to the last extremity. Also that
the admirals of the allied fleets had decided
that it was not expedient to enter the hither
of Sebastopol until Fort Constantine should
be silenced. • Probably the allies will attack
this fort froth FOrt Alexander and Aftillity
