BEIILIX AX I) ROME.
[From the New York Tribune.]
The contest between the German govern
ment and the Roman Catholic Church is
rapidly coming to a crisis. Archbishop Le
dochowski, after the confiscation of all his
property by repeated fines, lias been im
prisoned for appointing parish priests with
out the consent of the civil authorities, and
for threatening one of his priests with ex
communication. Pastors who derive their
appointment from him have been warned
that they will be punished if tiiey attempt
to execute any ecclesiastic functions. One
of the official newspapers of Germany lias
aroused general excitement and alarm by
hinting that something must be done to re
strain the violence of the Ultramontane
press, not only within the empire, but in
France and Belgium. The houses of the
Jesuits have been broken up, and the mem
bers of the society are compelled to choose
between quitting the country and abandon
ing their religious character. In short, the
Imperial government makes no secret of its
belief that Ultramontanism, that is to say,
the religious opinion of nearly all Cathoiic
Germany, is subversive of the established
political order, and does not conceal its in
tention to assume the control of ecclesias
tical appointments, and of ail religions ed
u<*ng*on, not to speak of more violent
measures against the most conspicuous of
the Papal champions.
The result of a year’s contest in this mat
ter is beginning to appear. The govern
ment has got one archbishop in prison, and
lias encouraged the formation of congrega
tions of the Old Catliolics —of which con
gregations there are about one hundred in
the empire, according to the statement of
Bishop Reinkens last September. But on
the other hand an extraordinary impulse
has been given to the Church party, and
the recent elections have enormously in
creased the strength of the Ultramontane
opposition in the German Parliament. This
of course was to have been expected. The
surest way to encourage the Roman Catho
lics was to martyr an obstinate Archbishop
or two, and as Prince Bismarck is likely to
go on from one hostile measure to another,
it is plain that the danger of a serious con
flict becomes greater 'and greater every
day. While the civil power continues on
its"present course, we do not see where it
can stop short of asserting the absolute
right of the State to set up or to put down
any religion it pleases; and in these days
office speech and free thought a preten
sion of that kind would be fatal to any party
that should put it forth.
The doctrines of the Roman Catholic
Church are Just the same here that they are
in Germany, and there is no part of the
world in which the Pope has more devoted
and uncompromising adherents than in the
United States. American bishops exercise
freely the authority which the archbishop
of Posen is sent to jail for assuming, and
priests may preach,' say mass, teach any
thing they'please, or excommunicate with
hell, book and candle, and our government
will never trouble its head about them.
They have no power except what they de
rive from the free consent of their parish
ioners. Their commands are binding only
on the consciences of their people. If they
are dangerous to the State, the State has
not found it out, and gets on comfortably
enough without religious perplexities of
any kind, only taking care that all denomi
nations have fair play and keep the peace.
It seems to us that the simplest solution of
tiie dilliciiltv in Germany would be to
adopt the American principle of a free
church in a free State. Whatever Ameri
cans may think about the doctrines of Rome
and the assertions of the Syllabus, the
German method of refuting them is repug
nent to all our notions of liberty and equal
.nvestigatiox into the case of
a wealiuy gentleman who died at Park
Hospital, New York, and was subsequently
buried in the common trench oil Hart
Island, with nearly seven hundred others,
has revealed a sickening history of venality
and brutality among the employes of the
Charity Commissioners of the metropolis.
Complaint is made by one woman that the
bodv of her husband, who had been
drowned four weeks previously, and of
whom a description had been left at the
Morgue, together with her address, was
carelessly thrown into the trench. Her ap
plication for its recovery was refused by
the official in charge, on the ground that
his negligence would cost him his place.
Another woman, on applying for the body
of her father, whose name and residence
were known at the lunatic asylum in which
lie died, and given to the authorities at the
Morgue, learned that it had been - given
a nay’' to a medical college, and only by
the Interference of a friend did she succeed
iu rescuing the mutilated] remains. It is
believed that fuller investigation will un
eanu nearly as many frauds as those prac
ticed upon the corpses in the Potter’s I- ield.
-A brisk little tight took place a few
. days before Christmas in I’lute county,
Utah, between a party of four Navajo In
dians and four white settlers. McCarty and
three other whites went to a cabin belong
ing to a man named Beaver, in which were
tho lour Indians, to warm themselves.
McCarty found his brand on a beef hide,
and proposed that the Indians give him a
pony tor the stolen beef. The Indians at
once began the tight with hows and arrows.
The white men left the cabin. One Indian
seized young McCarty’s rifle, when a
Herman named John shot the Indian
through the head. Another drew his bow
on Tom Richardson, w hen young McCarty
shot the Navajo through the hand. The

got a bale of hay, which they rolled toward
the cabin with the intention of setting it on

Indians fled, but ttie one wounded in the

THE DISABILITIES OF ADMIRAL
Washington, February 10.—General Gor
don had referred to the Senate Judiciary
Committee to-day a hill to remove the dis
abilities of Admiral Semmes. The amount
of sectional bitterness displayed towards
this officer lias been second only to that
exhibited toward Jefferson Davis himself,
and great opposition will no doubt be made
to conferring upon him the privilege to hold
office. Several years since he was elected
to an honorable office by bis fellow citizens
of Mobile, which he could not accept by
reason of the political disabilities resting
upon him. He inflicted more material in
jury upon the commerce of the North than
any other man who served the Confederacy.
As time wanes the memories of these tilings
will grow fainter, and sooner or later Ad
miral Semmes will stand on the same foot
ing as all other citizens, in liis letter to
General Gordon asking that action be taken
to remove his disabilities, he incloses the
following straightforward statement as his
petition to two houses of Congress:
“The undersigned respectfully shows unto
your honorable bodies that prior to the
late war between the United States and the
Confederate States he was a commander in
the navy of the United States, domiciled in
the State of Alabama, of wiiich State he
had been a citizen for a number of years ;
that viewing the questions at issue between
the Northern and Southern States, from a
Southern standpoint, lie believed in the
right of secession of a State for cause;
and in a contest of allegiance as between
his State and the Federal government, he
believed his allegiance to he ultimately
due to his State; that when his State se
ceded he felt himself in honor hound to
follow her fortunes for better or for worse;
that his State did secede, and upon the
happening of that event lie tendered ills
resignation to the then Secretary of the
Navy, who well knew the object of the
tender, and that his resignation was ac
cepted ; that being by such acceptance re
lieved from all his obligations to the Fed
eral government which grew out of his late
commission, he returned to the State
which he believed was entitled to liis alle
giance, took up arms in lier defence, and
defended her and the Confederate States of
which she had become a member, to the
best of his ability.
That at the close of the war he retired to
private life, and has again become a citizen
of the United States, having as a voter of
Alabama sworn to support and defend the
constitution of the United States and the
Union of the States. Having thus renewed
liis allegiance to the Federal constitution in
good faith, lie desires the prompt and entire
oblivion, except in so far as history may
deal with the subject of the late differences
between the two sections. He has the
natural affection of an American citizen for
the land of liis birth, and the same pride as
formerly in the glory and prosperity of tills
country, and of his whole country; and he
now requests your honorable bodies to re
move the political disabilities under which
lie has so long labored, and restore him to
the full and free embrace of the only country
which he cares to claim. Respectfully,

SOW HERN SUGAR.
[Pi or. i the Chicago Tribune.]
The soil of Louisiana is specially adapted
to the culture of the sugar cane. Labor is
abundant and comparatively cheap. The
markets are easily accessible. The sugar
and molasses produced are said to be the
best of their kind. Yet despite all these
advantages, the average annual shrinkage
in the supply of saccharine sweets, for the
last thirteen years, lias been 14,000 hogs
heads of sugar and 800,000 gallons of
molasses. The war, Warmoth, Casey,
Kellogg—these pests are doubtless responsi
ble for no small part of the State's in
dustrial retrogression, but there has been
still another and a greater cause.
The yield of sugar to the acre has steadily
diminished, not only on lands that might
reasonably be thought to be worn out, but
on all lands. The trouble is with tire cane.
It Is an exotic plant which needs to be oc
casionally renewed. Otherwise, when re
moved front its tropical home, it gradually
deteriorates and loses its productive power.
Last year an effort was made to bring new
cane from India and Egypt, where the yield
is nearly four times as large as it is in Lou
isiana. The plan was undertaken so late in
the season, however, that it failed. It is
now proposed that the State shall appropri
ate $50,0J0 to send a competent buyer to
Hindostan as early as the Ist of April.
The country is expected to furnish a na
val vessel to" bring back a cargo of fresh
and healthy cane. Why it should go into
the business of freight-carrier for Louisiana
planters it is not easy .to see, pernaps as a
slight expression of its sorrow for having
forced Kellojg upon those planters. There
is more reason lor Louisiana’s going into
Lie business of cane-buyer. The State lias

plantations. If these plantations should be
stocked with fresh cane, the yield probably
quadrupled, and the obligations might he
quickly paid off
The annual diminution of 14,000 hogs
heads of sugar and 800.000 gallons of mo
usses is a matter that concerns the whole
country. We are largely dependent on
Louisiana for our sugar supply. According
to the census of 1870, the total product of
the sugar was 87,043 hogsheads, and of cane
molasses, 6,593,333 gallons. Of these,
Louisiana produced 80,076 hogsheads, and
4,485,159 gallons. If the present rate of de

Nothing of especial interest has yet been

the favorite business during tiie first day’s
proceedings. Oil the secovd day, with Gen.
Colquitt in the chair, the convention got
through with cousiderab*; business. We
make some extracts from the proceedings :
Colonel Thomas Hardeman made an elo
quent speech, in which he said: The con
summation devoutly to be wished is for
returns to show a loss in cotton and a gain
in cereals. The last three years show
100,000 to 300,000 more bales of cotton pro
duced than before tiie war. The State this
season will show a production of 600,000
bales, against tiie same last year. He
proved conclusively from actual returns
that large crops of cotton and small grain
crops did not yield as much money as small
cotton and large grain crops. It is objected
that though the State has thus gained in
wealth, planters have not. Why? There
were railroad monopolists and capital ex
tortionists before the war. They cannot be
the causes. Before the war farmers had
their smoke-houses and corn cribs in Geor
gia : now they have them in the North and
West. They have planted so much cotton
as to reduce its price and leave no margin,
and by having no rotation of crops have
deteriorated the fertility of the land. He
showed from returns that Atlanta alone had
received $20,000,000 of Western produce for
distribution in Georgia. That received at
Columbus (does not go bv Atlanta), Savan
nah and other points will swell this amount
to $30,000,000 to $40,000,000, all of which
could be saved by raising supplies at
home. To abolish liens planters must
raise supplies and then cotton, and thus
they will be independent of factors. Let
the prodigal return to his father’s house.”
General Colquitt called the attention of
the convention to the fact that the actual
supplies obtained outside the State were
about equal in value to her entire cotton
crop; so we send out all the money we get.
Instead of cheap transportation to the
West, he wanted it so high as to amount to
a prohibition of prime articles that ought to
be raised in the State. Col. S. Barnett, of
Wilkes, said the underlying principle to the
failure of farmers was that too few wanted
to work. They had too much brains and
wanted to oversee. Mr. Paine, of Cobb :
“ Resolved, That a committee of five be ap
pointed to report on the importance of di
rect trade.” Resolution was adopted and
Capt. E. T. Paine, of Cobh; Col. W. J.
Lawton, of Bibb ; Gen. G. P. Harrison, of
Savannah ; Col. D. S. Johnson, of Morgan,
and Col. T. W. Fleming, of Baker, were ap
pointed that committee.
MARRIAGE BY CONTRACT.
A Wife Sues Her fluslmntl and Rela
tives for Conspiracy—Domestic Idle
Pittsburg, Pa., February 7.—An inter
esting case of alleged conspiracy is on trial
in the courts of this city, the incidents
being of quite a romantic nature. The
prosecutrix is Regina Steiner and the de
fendants her husband and a number of Lis
relatives. Mrs. Steiner is a large, hand
some, middle-aged woman, a native of
Alsace. She appeared in court in the rich
est and costliest of toilets and with a profu
sion of elegant jewelry. It appears that in
1860 a wealthy merchant named Gottfried
Jacque made her acquaintance and secured
her as his mistress. They lived together
for over two years, when Mr. Jacque con
cluded to marry someone else, and after
revolving the question over, he hired Julius
Steiner to marry her, agreeing to settle upon
her an annuity of $1,200 iu gold, for the
support of herself and children.
Steiner came to America and remained
for a while in New York, but ultimately
came to Pittsburg, where he finally settled.
After the lapse of about nine months he re
turned to Paris, married Regina, in pur
suance of the previous arrangements be
tween himself and Jacque, with whom she
had been living, and brought her to Ameri
ca, together with two children, of whom the
wealthy merchant was father. In the mean
while the merchant had settled on Regina
an annuity of 6,000 francs ; but before the
Yqar had expired after their arrival here,
the husband, with the other defendants,
commenced a series of systematic abuses
of the wife. They tried to force her into Dix
mont Insane Asylum, and in other various
ways to rid themselves of her presence.
For a considerable time it seems that her
husband appropriated her mouey to his own
purposes, and with it purchased some prop
erty—that was not recorded, however—and
and lie conveyed it to Adam Weigand, a
relative, evidently for the purpose of get
ting rid of the difficulties occasioned.
The defendants deny any conspiracy for
the sake ol obtaining the annuity. The
paper provides that the two must marry,
and the inference is that tiie money be
longs equally to the husband and wife.
The case is still going on.

A man who is given every year six brushes,
five combs, half a gallon oi' cologne, and a

fire box, lias Tost his place, been heavily
fined, and is now undergoing a disgraceful
imprisonment,. One man at least, beside

one breath of the flame must have destroyed

what his business at New York really was,
