That this s the true object to
which t ie present : extraordinary exertions
of jthe Roman Court ultimately tend," says
the writer, ' no reasonable doubt can, for
a moment, be entertained." The argu
ment that Rome does! nof generally exert
this power (which .she believes herself to
possess, as a matter of divine right.) in our
days, he holds to be no . argument to dis-;
prove the intentions and designs he im
putes, or to warrant he inference that it
has beep, or soon wity be, relinquished.-!-
He contends that she Has ever been prompt
to but them forth whenever there was an
opportunity to extort obedience ; and he
allbdes to the pregnant and startling fact
that the present Pope Gregory XVI., but
a few years ago, attempted to wield this
pofver, with unexampled absoluteness, a
gainst Portugal and Spain ; quoting in
proof, from the Allocution of March, 1841,
and observing: that the Spanish crovern-
ment, in their manifesto of July, 1841, a
verred that the holy See had never since
the time of Gregory yil. until the present,
maintained pretensions so high, or promul
gated them in a manner so imprudent and
so reckless. 1
In this connexion, he quotes authentic
statistics, going to show the extent to which
the Roman ecclesiastical establishment
in the United States, has increased within
the past eight years, j He puts down, as
fbr jthe year 1836 for instance, the numi
ber of ecclesiastics, of establishments ana"

since the last year of 55.) ;. churches, 611;

dents, 261 ;) periodicals, 15, and the popu
lation 1,300,000, more than doubled in
He then comes to the consideration c f
thje jqqetion, whetherbr not, in the presen t
condition of the. Romish Church and cf
Christendom, there are reasons to believe
theiltoman clergy will at last come out of
thej impending contest victorious I Tp
throw light on the course of his argument,
he refers to the past history of he Roman
Catholic Church", and proceeds to show
that the Roman, Frankish and Germaa
governments have ever taken that churc i j
under their patronage lor the advance-!
ment o f their own political interests ; ana
tha sh 3, who was at first a suppliant, ami
afterwards an ally, always ended, when;
she; cot Id, as an imperious tyrant. From
the, times of Constantine and Theodosiui;,!
down; through those of Pepin and Charle
magne, of Otho and Henry III. to those of
King John and of Arragon, when the as-!
piratiohs of Gregory VII. seemed to be
near tbjeiriccomplishment, he takes a ra
pid review of her pretensions and of her
unvyillingness to make concessions to thi
State for the purpose of establishing her
power. He next conies to the beginning
of tiie 14th century, when this power bej
ganjto decline, and instances the refusal
of Phil p the Fair to lsubmit thereto, the
stand r aadc by the German government
against it, the refusal of Edward III. olf

Iwoful disappointment which she met with'
in that design, on the . final overthrow of
her hierarchy, in that country, in 1830.-
Next he comes to her ill-success in Russia,
and to her better luck in Belgium, in 1831.
This brings him to a consideration of the
prdgress"of affairs in i the- Papal - States
themselves, and i ndeed throughout all Italy.'
Having shown that" there is a state of
feeling existing there, which is decidedly
adverse to the government of the Church,
l and that the yoke jwoiild not reluctantly
be thrown off, upon a fitting opportunity,
and having argued successfully, we think,
: that the domination of the Romish govern
ment is opposed in its influences to the ad
i vanccment of the arts and sciences, and
: especially to the interests, temporal and
eternal, of the peojJle, the writer gives a
direct response to the question with which
he started, " Will the Hierachy come out
of the contest victorious V The reply may
be thus condensed. No: for the faster
the power of Rome increases, the greater
wil be its abuse, and thence its sure over
throw: such are the feelings and tendencies
of things in Europe that a mere trifle may
at any lime work the overthrow and ruin
of the Hierarchy. Italy must ere long be
totally destroyed, if the Church be not;
and it only needs the withdrawal from her
of Protestant support to effect this result.
Look at Spain," (says' the writer.) "It
mightrbe said that Providence placed that coun
try under the exclusive control of Romanism to
shqw the world what effects it is capable of
working out for the temporal interests of the
nations. And what is Spain now? A dreary
waste haunted .by beggars. Cross it from the
Pyi-enees to Cadiz, from jthe Bay of Biscay to
the Mediterranean Sea, and you will fteLa3
though you were transported into an African
country : no agriculture, no industry, no trade,
no means of internal communication, no castles,
no palaces hot even ruins of Christian origin :
but there stands in the middle of the desert the
Escurial, the fit abode of j the destroying angel
of the land. Still thi3 is the country of the or-
ango tree, and the nightingale : the home of
chivalry, poetry and love ; where 'the Moors
reared the wonderful temples, the enchanted
palaces of Andalusia, Grenada, and Valencia,
gathered all the learning of the world, and the
best scholars, artificers, and husbandmen of the
middle ages, who converted it into a garden
worthy of the magical Alhambra. What a con
trast between the Moors and Philip II., and his
Nor is he less eloquent when referring
to ffaples and Sicily, in this connexion.
1 What," says he, " are Naples and Sicily
noW ? Go back to the days of your youth, re
view the splendid scenes which the polity, phi
losophy, and poetry of Ilesperiaand the island
of the sun presented to your enraptured imagin
ation, and say if you did not almost believe that
that paradise of the Western Greece was a
land beyond the boundaries of this world? And
when you crossed in a hurry the patrimony of
St. Peter, and the duchyj of Rome, could you
realize that that pestilential desert was the field
of the long-contested battles, and the triumphs
of the republic, the favored retreat of dictators
and consuls, and the resort of the rusticating
nobility of Rome ? But there is the Papal city
overlooking the melancholy Campagna as if
ashamed of its desolation, and trying to escape
from the malaria of her own manufactures, the
most appropriate type of the religious syste mi

desses of the land." j
And ne goes on to snow and to account
for the hatred which the Italians have for
Popery ; in the mis-government and mis
erable effects .upon the character,' happi
ness, advancement, economy and triorals
of the people. Thence he proceeds to
show the incompatibility of this religious
cried with the political compact of the
Uiiited States : that the greater the Con
stitutional liberty, the! greater is the dan
ger to it from Popery ; and then comes to
the subject of the Christian alliance re
cently entered into in bur land for the pur
pose of resisting its rapid advance in this
country. This, with the prospects adver
ted to already, of a stern and successful
resistance to the power of Roman Catho

the assumption that the security of prot

jcUssedi Among those; whai took part in ih6 dis
cusionvvas iMrQ idtjiogs, of: Ohio. Having
heard. very littlo of his . speech, I can give no
other account of what he said than that ho dwelt,
as he alwaj s does, a good deal Upon slavery, and
the amount of money, which the north, has to pay
fbrit. Dwelling so mucb upoii it as he does is
extremely; provoking to southern members; with
l whqnT be of course makes himself very obnox

allowances and cbmpensan'onswbch Georgia

zens of that State during a period of .many years
prevlously.i'.vi?iVj j?.-.,' ify.t
'. Mr Black, of Georgia followed Mr. G., and
indulged in a strain ofinarks highly offensive..
MK G. had spoken of Islayery as an evil j Mr.
Black said that neither" the people of Georgia
Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, nor South Car.
olina deemed it an evi
uui a jjiaitu, aiiu so
would. yield the floor if he would exhibit any
proof to the contrary, j Mr. .G. .rose and t Mr.
Black after some ' parleying, yielded the floor.
Mr. Giddins then went on for a while without
touching the particular; point upon which Mr. bJJ
made tbo inquiry of him, when Mr.,B claimed
the floor. . Mr. Giddings contended that he had
jt, and an altercation and contention ensued for
some fifteen minutes, which was any thing but
creditable to the committee, -i The chair decided
that Mr. Giddings had the floor.' Fromthis there
was an appeal, and,t he decision of the chair was
not sustained. v 1 , v
ever listened to in any! public body. ' Why the
Chairman permitted the indulgence of such a
strain of remark, I cannot conceive ; he did,
however, check it after it had gone on many mi
nutes. I could not give all the language used
without ofiending the. ear of modesty; but'im.
proper asHhe language was, there were many
members sitting around Mrl Black who were so
hugely delighted with it that they could not re
frain from loud laughter.
When Mr. Black concluded, Mr. Giddings en
deavored to get the floor, but some one had mov.
ed thatthencommitt(e rise. - Mr Scheck appeal!
ed to members : hii colleague had been grossly
and personally assailed, and desired to reply; he
presumed under such circumstance no gentle
man would insist on the motion to rise. Mr.
McCcnncll, of Alabama, said he would, and sev
eral others made the same reply. The commit
tee rose and reported, and immediately went into
committee again, when Mr. Giddings obtained
the floor and proceeded to notice the insulting re
marks of Mr. Black. Mr. B. had charged Mr.
G.whh owning the wagon, and claiming it which
had been used by the Rev. Mr. Torrey to steal
negroes, and had said that if Mr. G. had his de
serts he would now be keeping company with his
fellow laborer, friend, j and worthy companion,
Mr. T., in the Maryland Penitentiary. He also
charged him with franking a calico frock home,
and thus defrauding the post office, marking Jt,
however, no public document."- These speci
fic charges Mr. G. pronouncrd absolutely, total,
ly, and unqualitiedlyafoe. ' The first had been
made in that House last Session, and he had then
put the stamp of falsehood upon it; there was
not a particle cf truth in it. The other he had
never heard before, and he pronounced it a base
fabrication, false and foul it orrginated with the
member himself, or wi(h him whom he served in
uttering it. j
When Mr. G . rose, Mr. Black came across the
Hall and took a position very near to him with a
stout hickory cane in his hand when he eyed him
with a look full oflneaning. Standing within
six feet of him, and within the same distance of
Mr G. I saw mischief afoot, and mentioned to
two members that there would, I feared, be diffi
culty. Mr. Black seemed to be waiting, I
thought, for Mr. Grtosay something personally
offensive of him. PreSently.Mr. B. advanced to.
wards Mr. G. and took a position within a foot or
twoorme, as I stood at the entrance of the bar,
and leaning on it.
Mr. Giddings went on
lie said the member
had talked of knocking
him down 1 Did he sud
pose that the people of jthe North sent cowards
here to protect their rights? Did he suDDose
Northern men had craven hearts ?
Mr. Black now said, raising his cane, "if you
will say, 6ut of doors, yhat you said here I will
knock you down," and immediately attempted to
get nearer to Mr. G. brandishing his cane in the
meantime. Fortunately, however. Mr. Wood.
ward, of S. at the moment occupied the seat
of Mr, Simpson of the same State, and Mr. B.
could not approach Mr4 Giddings without pass
ing him. Mr. Woodward prevented him from
doing so until other members Mr. Payne, of
Ala., Mr. Slidell, and Mr. Jameson, of Misso.,
came up, interfered, and took him away.
You may well suppose there was great ex
citement for somo minutes in the House, at
what had taken place, and there seemed to be
an apprehension in the poinds of some that more
violence would be offered. Mr. Giddings made
a few more remarks and closed. He said this
was the. first time he had ever alluded to any
member personally since he had been a mem
ber of the House. That he had always en
deavored to treat every member with the utmost
courtesy, though he had not always, received it
at the hands of olhersi and had even seen a
bowie-knife drawn on nim in this House. This
annunciation produced manifest astonishment.
ana tne inquiry was made by many, to whom
ne alluded j lie did not indicate the individual,
but alluded to the circumstance which baimened
S -m my
iwy vHuree years ago, wnen Mr. Giddings in
,UIUWU uouse. wunout makinir anv mnfion
on the subject,4hat he j had been intentionally
jostled and insulted. Mr. Black alluded to the
same transaction io-his remarks to-day, as proof
Mr; G.'s want of courage and spirit.
