Th New York Crusader (G.rvazfci paper,)
is putt in some very ha:d siuestiuits to Hon.
Mr. Chandler, of this State, sugstcd by. his
speech iu the House of Representatives, de
nying that the Pope of Rome exercised any
political power out of, or away from, his own
petty dominions. The Crusader joins issue
with Mr. Chandler in regard to the Pope's po
litical power, and asserts it to be a f.ict that
"the Bishops are bound to report at Rome, at
least once a year, what transpires, politically,
in their several dioceses." Those who have
read Mr. Chandler's speech will recollect his
declaration that "if the spirit of conquest
should seize on the wearer of the tiara, and he
should seek to subjugate Italy, provoking the
arms of other nations against his own State, he
(Mr. Chandler,) would look on the chances cf
the defeat of his own arms as coolly and com
placently as on the mischievous schemes of
any other ambitious monarch." But the Cru
sader with much force enquires:
Has Mr. Chandier forgotten already that
Pius IX provoked, in 181'J, the arms of other
nations against his own State ' That French,
Austrians, Spaniards, Neaplitans, Lazzaronis..
and Swiss, banditti, were called by the Vicar
of Christ to subjugate his people? Perhaps the
Hon. American Representative will say that
the Pope was only attempting to re-conquer
what he had been deprived of, and that he
was right, such being also the opinion of every
Bishop in the United States, in proof of which
he has only' to read the pastoral letters and
sermons of Bishops England, Kendrick. Hughs,
etc., etc. But, admitting this right for the
Pope, then you must also acknowledge that
Georgelll, was justified in waging war against
the United States, unless you will consider tho
Romans as not belonging to the human family,
and not children, like the Americans, of the
But Mr. Chandler will reply, as is customary
with all Catholic Komish writers and orators.
that the Romans attempted to deprive the
Pope of his spiritual power, and do away with
the religion of their fore-lathers. Lnfortu
nately for him; and for all the members of his
Papal congregation, the Constitution of the
Roman Republic, decreed by the unanimous
vote of the people, in lblu, stated:
"Art. 7. The Catholic religion is the
"The exercise of the civil and political
rights of a citizen do not depend upon the re
"Art. a. The Chief of the Catholic church
will receive all necessarily guarantees for the in
dependent exercise of the spiritual power."
By the above articles it will be seen that the
framers of the Roman Constitution did not in
tend to deprive the Pope of his spiritual pow
er, nor to renounce the Catholic religion.
The Crusader presents facts which Mr.
Chandler will find it difficult to overcome, set
aside, or explain away. We shall look on with
some interest to sec if any effort is made by
tne other side to nullify them.
En passant, the Metropolitan Catholic Al
manac for 18-35, mentions among the list of
"Prelates who have retired from office," the
Right Rev. Frederick Reze, Bishop of Detroit,
consecrated October 6, 1833. This calls to
the recollection of the Philadelphia Daily. S'an,
"a most shameful act of injustice and barbarity
against this gentleman, for the perpetration
of which Rome would have been called to ac
count by any other government in Christen
dom, had he been its citizen. Bishop Reze is
citizen of the State of Michigan, and yet he
has been for years incarcerated in a Roman
dungeon, without any one knowing why.
Consress has demanded his release: his old
fellow citizens of Detroit, who love him, have
mplored it, and the Representatives of tiie
United States at Rome, have asked it, but all
n vain. An American citizen is immured in
a Papist dungeon, because the Pope holds au
thority over his life and limb, and no threat or
persuasion can ellect his release." Here is
evidence of the 'temporal power of the Pope,'
which Mr. Chandler did not find it expedient
to allude to in his Jesuitical defense of "the
carer of the tiara." The truth is and Mr.
Chandler knows it "the power of the Pope,"
n political as well as spiritual matters, is re
garded by all true Catholics as supreme. It
is also true that the mission of Romanism in
his country is for political supremacy, hence
the combination and organization of Roman
Catholics, as such, and the concentration of
their votes at the ballot boxes to control our
elections. liar. Tel.

Jan. SI, '55.) " GEO. W. RHEEM, O. S.
Cocrtesies of thx Press. The New York
Express, in treating the "Dead Head" ques
tion, nas the following :
"It is impossible for the Press so discharge
its duties to the public well, without favor
from that public. The Reporters for the Press,
for example, must have the best places in
deliberate assemblies at public dinners, &c,
or else they cannot actually report. In all
public deliberate assemblies', these especial
favors are always shown them there in free
countries. So in operas and theatres to ena
ble the critic to hear well and judge well, an
especial "favor" of a good seat must be given
him. If he is no better off in position there,
than the great mass of the public, he is not in
a position to judge well, and so to write well.
The favor is reciprocal. It is the interest of
the public thus to be noticed and it is for the
interest of t he Press to notice.
Bona fide editors and reporters can now find
time to ride hut little, and the expense of
transporting them can be but little. It is the
perversion of the dead head system among the
politicians that has led to its disuse and un
popularity, and the quicker that is corrected
the better; but in a country where a free press
exists, the cheaper and freer are made the
means of collecting all the necessary intelli
gence to supply its wants, the better for all
concerned. The Press is always indefatigable
in gathering facts, if the expense of gather
ing them is not placed beyond its means."
Ttoniaa Catholic Sesret Association.
The Democratic papers are very much alarm
ed about tiie American 'secret political organi
zations.' What do they think of the San Fe
desii, the most secret and the most dangerous
society which the Roman Catholics have in
this country ? Its direct object and unaltera
ble determination is to uproot every institu
tion, government, law and custom that is in
opposition to that church. It is the violent
hater of Republicanism ; it is the sworn and
fiendish opponent of" Americanism ; it wears
upon its unhallowed lips the vow to overturn
the liberties of this country, and to make the
Pope Supreme Ruler. Such is the "San Fe
desti," and yet with a full knowledge of its
existence in this country, the lips of the Dem
ocratic editors are hermetically sealed with
regard to the designs and operations of this
"secret political organization !" Telegraph.

Papacy and Republicanism. Every day
we have more convincing reasons to assert the
antagouism of the Roman Church to Ameri
can Republicanism. The Hickman (Ky.)
Times states that a Roman Catholic priest,
living in that county, preached a sermon near
Wilburn a few days since, in which he attemp
ted to prove that a Republican Government
was wrong in principle, in practice and in
morals; that it was contrary to the laws of God
and nature, ruinous to the interest of the true
Church, (the Roman Catholic,) and that all
who were members of that Church should do
everything in their power to break down and
destroy any such government. '
Mcke Railkoad TitovbLL's We learn from
the Clinton (Mich.) Express, 'that one of the
contractors on the Oakland and Ottawa rail
road, named Gray, on Thursday last had some
difficulty with some Irishmen in his employ,
in the course of which he was oblieed to resort
to fire-arms in self-defence. Three Irishmen
were shot but none dangerously wounded.
