The Ro man Catholic church was the subject of conversation; the interests the controlling men of that church tool: iu the political af fairs of this country, how clo-eiy they w atched the movements of political parlies, with a view to iheir own advantage; aud how well informed t li--y were on those subjects. As an evidence of the truth of these things !Mr. Harringer said that the first informa tion be received of the appointment of Mr, Campbell to the Cabinet ol Pre-ideut Pierce, was through the Nuncio of the Pope of Rome, the Nui.cio informing him at the time, that he (Mr. C.) was a member of the Ro mish Church. I think Mr. Harringer said, that at this time, he did not know Mr. Camp bell, nor did he know that be belonged to the Romi-li Checrh. The appointment to the cabinet of President Pierce, his mem bership iu the Roman Catholic Church, tho tact ma' the appointment had been made, were all communicated ll Mr. 1, by thu Nuncio, in advance, of any other informa tion he had received lioiu home ou the sub ject.
