PJLU'IL'S 7> THU SOVTHERN STATES.
Political parties are fast beginning to show
themselves in certain of our Southern States.
In the States which hare latest been restor
ed to a settled status with the general gov
ernment, among which may be included our
own State, the Florida, Alpbttma
-and Mississippi, the parties of the coming
year? are yet in embryo. The old political
leaders have generally been too much occu
pied with ascertaining their own personal re
lations with the government to edneem
themselves about the prospects of their form
er parties. The progress of events will call
xtew leaders to the head of new political or
ganizations*. Upon what issues these parties
of the future are to founded, and by what
lines they are to bo defined, it would be dif
ficult to prognosticate at present. Perhaps
the most significant indications of the chan
nels which political currents will take, are to
be found in the States farthest advanced to
wards their future normal condition, “such as
Instead of attempting to defend or uphold
slavery, Southern politicians are organizing
parties on the basis of the suffrage. In Louis
iana there is a Universal Suffrage party, man
aged by a Central Executive Committee,
Thomas J. Durant, President. This gentle
man, so late as 1862, addressed a letter to
President Lincoln protesting against the abo
lition of slavery. Now he favors negro suf
lrage, and appears to have a considerable
party at his back. Ho urges Governor Wells
to “extend the elective franchise to all the
inhabitants of the State who are loyal, with
out distinction of color or origin.’’
Governor Wells refuses to comply with
this request in a letter which has just been
published in New York, He holds himself
to be bound by the present Constitution and
saws of i ouisiau<| and as these do not con
fer upon the negroes the right of suffrage, he
declares his inability to do anything in the
Without deciding which,of the two parties
is right, or likely to be the stronger In time
to come, we can at least express satisfaction
over the fact that the Southern people have
commenced the discussion of this vital ques
tion. Yet this is by no means the only ques
tion upon which the public mind of the South
Is exercised, during the present period of
transition. Through the candid expositiou
of Southern views in the course of discussion,
by the statesmen, and the voluntary action
of the people, the element of the great prob
lem of re-UDion will finally become fully
known, and a safe and permanent settlement
The Herald as an Advertising Medium.
—One evening last week we had three ad
vertisements handed in at our business
couuter of articles lost. Before noon of the

been answered by the finders of the articles
lost, and Mr. Fay bad the pleasure of restor

Another Conflict of Authorities.—
There is a conflict between the military and
civil authority at Chattanooga, tho former
obstructing sheriffs in the execution of their
orders from the circuit court of the State.
The President has appealed to. Some
ot the civil officers are of the opinion that
cannot execute the civil laws in cases
arising between citizens, there is no neces
sity for their holding their offices.
A Difficcltt occurred at a picnic at
Rock Springs, Tenu., ou the Bth, between
returned Union and rebel soldiers, resulting
in the death of three and the seriously woun
ding of seven others.
As Excellent Reform.—lt appears from
a number of the Nassau P.j Guardian
before us, that an “Early Rising Movement’’
has been inaugurated with great success at
that place. The Guardian remarks :
It gives us great pleasu re to perceive that
the Early Rising movement has already had
its beneficial effects. Young' ladies, we felt
confident, only wanted one or two good ex
amples, by way of keeping them in counten
ance, to iaduce them to rise a little before
that great luminary which gives light to all
the world. How pleasing to see the youth
and beauty ot Nassau on the Esplanade at
5 1-2 o’clock a. m., watching: the sun peering
above the eastern horizdn, with his rays of
many-colored hue, beginning to perform his
daily woik! One of our writers remarks,
with much truth, that those who worship the
Sun are rile most excusable of all idolators.
>V ith what adoration was his approach ob
served by the ancient Mexicans ! It must
enc^ anl >ug. sight to have be
held the \ trgins of the Sun, as they were
called, kneeling around the Halls of Monte
zuma aud _ awaiting his approach to eive
him adoration i Who knows but the aboriei
nal inhabitants of this colony might not have
done the same ?

SPIRITUAL AND TEMPORAL DOMIN
ION OF THE POPE.
The dominion of the Pope, spiritual and
temporal, has endured for six centuries.
There are three epochs into which the histo
ry ot the Popedom may be divided:
1. The occupation of the Papal chair by
Giegory the First, at the end of the sixth
2. The dethronement of Pope Pius the
Seventh, by Napoleon Bonaparte, in 1312.
3. The union of the States of Italy, under
the rule of 4 Yictor Immanuel, which threatens
the severance of the spiritual from the tem
poral power of the Pope.
It was at the first of these epochs that the
liold project was conceived of the union of
sacerdotal and secular power, consummated
under the pontificate of Gregory the Seventh.
It was he that contemplated the reduction of
the whole of Christendom to a feudal subjec
tion to the Holy See, assuming the right of
appointment, notjonly the of whole body ot the
dergy to vacant Sees, but the succession to
every throne in Europe.
History tells us that it was the excesses o f
the Roman clergy which wa9 the immedi
ate, moving cause of the Reformation, and
the decay of the Pope’s power. But Philos
ophy teaches a different les-on, and the re
formation was more a symptom than a cause
of that intellectual revolution which has un
dermined the Popedom. The most re
markable feature of this combined ecclesi
astical and temporal dominion was that it
owed nearly every thing to moral influence,
and very little to force ; for altbpifgh the
Pope maintained at Rome a regular army,
and occasionally took part in the military
operations of Europe, it was more as an
auxiliary than as a principal. His power
owed every thing to opinion. The seat of its
supremacy was in the mind.
But an intellectual revolution was
at hand. . The people of the Middle
Ages were having their mind stirred
to their • utmost depths. The nearly
simultaneous appearance in different parts of
Europe, of Wicklifte in England, of Hujs in
Bohemia, of Luther and Zuinglius in Ger
many, of Calvin in Switzerland, of John
Knox in Scotland—gave evidence of tho all
pervading influence of the change at hand.—
These independent thinkers were the off
spring of a mental illumination that kindled a
glow of light, wherever inEurope it was allow
ed to gather materials. Like all revolutions
the movement was promoted by a few who
direct and guide popular opinion, but there
was a wide basis of sympathy in the general
mind; there were general causes in opera
tion that g tare it support, and of which lead
ers like LUVher, Calvin and Mclancthon are
The next great blow received by the Papal,
authority was the imprisonment of the Pope
in 1812 by Napoleon Bonaparte. This was
accompanied by so many circumstances of
degradation that although much personal
sympathy was felt, the effect as regards the
moral influence of the Papacy was highly in
jurious. It was on this occasion that Bona
parte materially reduced the Temporalities
of the Pontiff, and first drew the line be
tween his spiritual and temporal authority.
Having annexed his dominions to the French
Empire he could not accomplish all his pur
poses. The public was not prepared for so
great a change as he wished to effect, but the
blow neverihele-s was irreparable. Venera
tion for the See of Rome had met, with much
abatement. St. Peter’s was as much throng
ed as ever with devotees, but the general in
fluence of the Roman Catholic Church was
This was the first attempt made in Eu
rope to draw the line between the Pope’s
temporal and ecclesialical authority. If the
elder Bonaparte had lived to mature his
plans, the separation would be complete.
The Nephew has every wish to follow the
example, in this respect, pf.tlie Uncle, but is
restrained by of policy.
In this brief historical survey our object
has been to show that the source and founda
tion of the Papal power, being a moral in
fluence, has lost its hold over the mind of
a large part of its supporters and followers
—that they may still,bow before its shrines,
but have lost for it that sentiment of vener
vation witboat which, its ritual and ceremo
nies afford no compensation. These appeal
to external sources of Influence— that to the in
temalr—these appeal to the senses and imagi
nation—that to the reason.
Do not the events in Piedmont aud Mexi
co furnish a confirmation of these views?
Victor Emanuel and Maximilian are follow
ing those impulses to which their own inter
est and opinion in their respective States
conduct them. The feud between the form
er and the. Pope widens every day, as does
that between the Pope and Maximilian.

Negro Suffrage. —lt is stated that twelve
of the original thirteen States had no clause
in their Constitutions prohibiting the negro
from voting, up to forty years ago. South
Carolina wa9 the one exception.
Emigration to the South.— A Richmond
paper calling upon the emigrants who land at
New York, English, Scotch and Irish, to
come South where they are very much
“Our fields want them ; our forests arc
sighing for them ; finance wants them ; the
fireside wants them ; politics wants them
We have -broad acres and a welcome for
many a day’s importation of them ; yes, many
a month’s cargo, even at this high rate, and
we have a genial country, a hospitable peo
ple, easy employment, indulgent task masters
and abounding room for all.”
Joe Jobmston's Opinion of Davis. —A letter
from Richmond says : #
Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, in a letter to a
friend in this city, remarked that the South
ern cause could not have tailed with anybody
else but Jeff Davis as its leader. That opin
ion seems now to gain ground very rapidly,
and public sympathy with him is diminishing
in proportion as this fact is beiug realized.
Col. Notbrop Davis,. Commissary General
and peculiar proteye, condemns without re
serve the policy which he pursued. The
Colonel says that so disgusted did lie become
with the whole cause that he refused to speak
to him for nearly twelve months before the
evacuation of Richmond. He said that at
the battle of Drury’s Bluff, TJavis, who was
near the scene of battle, feared to order hi 9
Generals to change the plan of actioo,
though be knew it was wrong. The Colonel
says, moreover, that, for the la9t twelve
months before the close of the war, Davis’
mind was very unsettled, so much so that he
rarely issued au important order which he
did not afterwards countermanded. He
changed his opinions constantly, except in
regard to some Generals who we obnoxious
to him. His hostility to them and his opin
ions of their inefficiency remained uniform
Reduction of the Abmy. —The reduction
of the military forces is going on with rapidi
ty. In the Army of the Potomac, the Pro
visional Corps, which was formed by the
consolidation of the old troops, had only a
short-lived existence, from tie 28tli of June
to the 7th of July. That army, therefore,
recently so powerful and destined ever to be
so memorable, no longer exists. A week or
ten days may be consumed in the mustering
out. Gen Auger s troops, employed in the
defense of the works about Washington, are
also beiug reduoed to a mere garrison force.
The Cavalry in Virginia is to be materially
reduced at the discretion of Gen T6rry.
Slocum’s Army of Georgia is to be cut down
to less than 10,(WO, and Logan’s Army of
the Tennessee, is to be reduced to a few di
visions. As organizations, the two great
Western armies will substantially disappear
within a week. But little more than one
hundred thousand men will soon be left in
arms throughout The country, nearly three
fourths of whom will be under the command
of Gen. Sheridan in the Southwest. The
ageuts of the Quartermaster’s Department,
during the last week, sold over 10,000 mules
and horses, and 2,500 ambulances and army
wagons, besides a vast amount of harness
Spd other material. We may add, also, that
ecretary Welles is reducing the Navy, wltji
corresponding vigor, and will ultimately
bring it down from 05,000 men to 12,000 or
15,000. — Boston Journa/e
A Cukiocß Confidence Game.— One day
last week a youDg man 16 years old, belong
ing in Boston, who makes a liviug by retail
ing sewing siik at private residences, by the
skeih, was met in Hanover street by a man
who represented that he did business in State
street, and who had a bundle which he dp
sired to send to New York by special mes
senger. He asked the young man to go and
handed him a ticket. The dupe consented,
under the further representation that he
could get employment at SOO per month in
The young man left a bundle containing
S2O worth of silk with the stranger for sate
keeping, and went to New York. Arrived
there he could not find the parties to whom
the bundle was directed, and upon opening
the latter found it to contain pure saw dust,
when he for the first time realized that he
had been \sold.” He reached home through
the assistance of his father, to whom he
wrote. The individual who fools him again
will undoubtedly have to be smart.— Boston
The Methodist Church South.— A meet
ing of the ministers of the Methodist Church
South was held at Palmyra, Mo., last week,
at which the proposition from the Methodist
Episcopal Church, for the Southern branch
to abandon its distinct organization and form
one body, was debited aUength. The result
was the adoption of a resolution which sta
ted that. “we consider the maintenance of
our separate and distinct ecclesiastical organ
ization as of paramount importance and our
imperative duty.” Iu the report which pre
faced the resolution the committee state that
“the abolition of slavery has not destroyed
all the differences that existed between the
two bodies;” that “the question upon which
the church divided was not whether the in
stitution of slavery was right or wrong, per
se, but whether it was a legitimate subject
for ecclesiastical legislation and to go into
the Methodist Episcopal Church “would be to
yield the position we have so often taken, ad
mit thf charges we have so ofteu refuted, and
bv accepting political tests of chqrch fellow
ship, stultify ourselves, compromise the es
sential principles of the Gospel, and admit
the charge that with the institution of slave
ry we stand or fall."

Fruit* of Stock-Gambling.
The New York correspondent of the Prov
idence Journal relates the following melan
cholly incident of metropolitan life:
“Whilst descending from the upper part
ot the city this morning, I found in the cars
an aged clergymen, long since retired from
the pulpit, but. whom 1 recollect as one of
the most popular preachers of other days.
As I sat beside him I inquired after several
clergymen with whom 1 was formerly ac
quainted. Among the rest was the Rev.
Mr. . ‘When I last saw him,’ said the
aged clergyman in to my inquiry,
‘he was quite well. His departure was most
unfortuuate and melancholy.’ ‘You amaze
me,’ said L ‘pray, s.r what do you mean by
his departure?’ ‘Why, he was dismissed,’
returned my aged triend, have you not heard
On, my replying in the negative, and con
tinuing my expressions of surprise, the old
man related the following narrative ! “The
Rev. Mr. , as you know, succeeded my
father in the pulpit. He had'one of the larg
est and most lashiot able, certainly tne
wealthiest congregation in the city of his
sect, representing from five to six millions
ot dollars. They adopted thp spu a9 their
pastor before the death of nis lather, and
showered on him every favor, benefit and
good office. His salary was seven thousand
a year, and the gifts of his parishoners, to
gether with church fees, would probably
amount to as much more. He was beloved
and honored by everybody. Two years ago
his lather died and left him, his only son,
sixty thousand dollars.
Two years and a half ago the Rev. Mr.
was induced by a friend to purchase
’ a few shares in railway stocks in Wall street.
He was lucky at tho outset; was induced to
dip further ; was again lucky ; and luck led
him on to ruin. From that time up to about
a year ago he kept his Wall, street broker
employed, with varied success. From deal
ing in stockslie went into gold gambling; the
end of that need hardly be related. He soon
found himself not only bankrupt, but he had
sacrificed all his mother's estate, had involv
ed hi 9 wife’s father to the tune of one hun
dred thousand dollars, and had rendered
two of three of his wealthy parishioners
liable to the loss of sums varying from one
hundred and fifty thousand to forty thou
He now found himself but little better than
a beggar in the world. The proper ecclesi
astical authority interferred, took the matter
up, and manifested great indignation. I was
selected as a go-between for both parties. I
accepted the office. I found the authorities
unanimous agaiust the Rev. Mr. , and
advised him to resign, as it wouid be idle and
absurd to contend with that body. He
adopted my advice, resigned, took his family
to a sequestered retreat in a neigh
boring State, where they reside, consigned to
poverty. Some months ago a few members
ot the Rev. Mr. ’s congregation raised*a
fund of thirty thousand dollars for him, and
urged him to quit his native laud for awhile
and sojourn, in Europe. He accepted t heir
proposition, and is now in Germany. His
sad fate should be a terrible warning to all
clergymen against stock gambling.” u
The Bicgest Oil Stort Yet.—As indi
cative of the enormous new oil wells to he
bored this season, the Meadville (Pa.) Re
publican states that within the pa9t two
months 9,000 engines have pass through that
