CATHOLICISM IN AMERICA.
(New York Sun, 15th.)
Rome, Oct. 14. In consequence
of a report from Cardinal McCIoskey
tbe Vatican ia taking measures for a
very considerable development of
vathohcism in America.
"This dispatch," the Rev. Dr. Mc-
Glynn, pastor-of St. Stephen's Roman
Catholic church said, last evening,
"is, essentially improbable, if? not ab
sur. The spread of the Roman Catho
lie Church in America can only be
gradual. It cannot be forced by any
oden measures. It most Tesult
from the natural propagation of the
faith, whether from the birth of chil-
ren of Roman Catholic parents, the
immigration of Roman Catholics or
the conversion of non-Roman Catho
lics. The Church in America has
never ceased to endeavor to extend its
circle of influence, which it believes
to be for the good of those that are in
cluded in it. This it has done main
ly by the education of young men for the
priesthood, the establishment of new
bishoprics, but not before they are
actually needed, and the subdivision
of older ones. Undoubtedly Cardin
al McCIoskey has had good news of
the Church to communicate to the
Vatican, but not of a character to jus
tify this telegram.
THE TALLEST MAN AND WOMAN
IN THE WORLD,
The tallest man is Capt. M. V. Bates,
the tallest woman is his wife, formerly
Auna Swan. Capt. Bates was born in
Hopkins county, Ky., his parents being of
ordinary size. He continued to remain
with his parents,who were farmers, doing
the ordiuary labor of a small farm until
attaining his majority ,at which time he
coucluded to see something of the world
Proceeding te Cincinnati, thence to New
York, he was finally induced to proceed
to Europe for the purpose of exhibiting
himself. In conjunction with Miss Anna
Swan, whom he met there, they traveled
over Europe. Tbey were married at St
Martin's church, London, England, June
17, 1871. They were, by request guests of
the Queen, and received from her majesty
watches aud jewels as souvenirs,
Mrs. Bates, formerly Miss Anna Swan
was born in Colchester county, Nova
Scotia; is 29 years old, weighs 413 pounds
is 7 feet Hi inches high.
Mr. Bates is 7 feet Hi inches high,
weighs 478 pannds, wears a No. 9 hat,
25 collar, and a 15 boot. Both are wel
formed well proportioned, good looking
and highly cultured.
They are the largest man and woman
that live. Iu fact there is no authentic
record of any human beings ever having
the enormous height of the these people.
They returned to New York for exhibi
tion in February last and will shortly
make a tour of the West.
A Washington dispatch says there does
not seem, attar impartial investigation,
tli at there is adequate cause for the letter
of instruction sent to the United States
Attorneys in reference to the alleged inter
ference with Republican meetings. .It is
reliably stated that the persons who came
to Washington and who has been pouring
his mendacious recitals into the ears of
partisans purposely credulous is entitled
to no confidence whatever. Of course not,
aud any saae man ought to have known
at first that there was not a word of truth
in tbe lying sauder.
Neither Hayes nor his man Devens can
find excuse for the slanders they put in
circulation under the highest possible offi
cial sanction by sayiug that some other
lying slanderer had misinformed them.
Instructions like those issued by Devens,
at the order of Hayes, are entirely of too
grave a character to be issued, except up
on the best aud surest foundation. No
mere street rumor and no false represen
tations of lying partisan lips ean afford
the slightest pretence even of justification
for the President of the Uuited States and
his Attorney General in publishing to the
world mi groundless a slander. As we
said the other day would be the case, the
threats of Federal persecutions and Fed
eral indictments have no where created
auy alarm among the people whom they
were iutended to influence." To use what
our old Supreme Court was pleased to
term "the flippant speech of that rude
soldier, Kirk," that sort of thing has
'played out." lialeigh Obercer.
A New People. It iaclaimed that s new
people has been discovered in a district of
India. They are surmised to be descendants
of the Jews sent into that land by Solomon
to capture elephants and work in the gold
mines. They call themselves Sons of Israel,
not Jews, and declare that they have auto
graph prayer books written by the Fatriarchs,
and also written Bible, although Hebrew
has become almost a dead language with.
1 them. They observe the Sabbath, but know
nothing of the Passover and day of Atone.

Judge MKRarMon at Wisstok. Judge
Merrimon spoke to' a large audience in the
Court House on last Saturday, on the sub
ject of hard times and the cause. For three
hours he held 1m audience In one of the finest
efforts we ever listened to, and not a person
who heard hinrbuvnenjtvwayjwiser. It is
impossible to give a synopsis ofthe speech,
but we hope Judge Merjimod will write it
out and give it to the public. The loss of
capital North and South, by the war, the
corruption, extravagence and the policy of
contraction by the Republican party," he
gave as the prime cause of he hard times.
He believed that we ought to haye more
money, and that the bonds should be paid
off in greenbacks. He paid one of the finest
tributes te labor we ever heard, and gave it
as his opinion that it was onljj by labor and
economy that the country could be recuper

THE VALUE OF SOUP.
There are hundreds of families ia
comfortable circumstances who never
have sotlp at' dhirrer. w They are not
aware how easy it to. prepare ordin
ary soup and how ch6ap it is too. It
can be made of almost anything, and
a pot of water placed . on the stove
may be the recipient of divers odds
and ends of meat and vegetables to ex
cellent advantage. After these have
been boiled a few hours there will be
found in the pot a very good soup,
wholesome, nourishing,,, appetizing,
and its cost will pe nominal. If the
experiment were tried many families
would be surprised and pleased at the
result. "Tl.ie'vXTulil have a much
better binner for almost nothing than
they have hitherto ha"d any idea of,
and once accustomed to soup they
could not be persuaded Jo relinquish
it. A simple soup benefits at once
health, appelije and the purse.
