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" of worshippers of this denomination thus 12 bishiops, 1 archbishop, 341 priests, 300 churches, 10 colleges, 31 convents, ani 600,000 population. In 1844, the numbers given sire as follows : 17. bishops; bishops elect, 8 ; Apostolic 3'icarate, 1 : diocesses, 21 j priests, 613 (an increase of clergymeh since the last year of 55.) ;. churches, 611; other stations, 481 j seminaries,' 19 ; (stu dents, 261 ;) periodicals, 15, and the popu lation 1,300,000, more than doubled in eight years.) 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 England to acknowledge itand, to its rai pid declension through the reigns of Popei oixius iv.. innocent Vlljl., Alexander VI.y Julius (I., Leo X. and Paul III and so on, from the peace of Westphalta, in 1618, throug! i those of the Pyrenees in 1665, and of Utrecht in 1713, then! throueh the sunt pressiob of the Jesuits in 1762, the impri sonmeikt and death of Pius VI. in FranceL t i tPfm,X . .1 .. i .. . n ! iu ifi ant lDe retirement to.rans ot his successor Pius VII. in 1813, as the pri mate dfthe Catholic I Churchy-down to the restoration of Popery (but wofull shofn of its pretensions)in 1814.

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 successors." 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 wnicn buried under her ruins the gods and god. 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 licism, in continental Europe, based upon the assumption that the security of prot estanifsm and the peace of Christendom demand the defeat of that power, the wri ter thinks will render abortive the attempt fiL ' -I . uo w gumg on wun so mucn vigor, to re store the Hierarchy in all its pristine strength, r ; Recommending a plan of con certed action, and perseverance and de termination in carrying it into execution ine ".bxiJe" concludes -his task with earnest anneal: in lavhr C ih advocates ; taking occasion to record the fact in a u.P."S." that durinsr the vear. the Leopoldind Society of Europe has, itself aione, contributed no less than . 8200,000 for the support of the Ilomish Church in the-United States.iV.

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 ma 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.

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. Mr. U. said that he should not have nH an4any ncrsonal allusion Ia Anv mumKi.i. 1... t " .17"' -t uUl tack that had been mad upon him He should, as long as he was able, and held aeat upon this floor, do his duty to his Constituents to the best Ul aD7. aonesUy, fearlessly, and faithfully? but when violence should prevent his doing it, heAvould then leave the House, go home, and re. .port Jo those whom he ireprenented. ; .V .7 ' .When Mr. G. concluded.
