[Lond.w Correspondence New York WorM.] Some private dispatches trorn the Vatican ai rlved here last nigbt. Necessarily, they came in cipher. I believe they were ostensibly sent by a banker in Rome to his correspondent in London. ai.d referred, apparently, only to morev matters. But they really were messages from "those nearest the "Pope "to their friends hi re and in Dublin. I am able to say that one fact was stated with great (learaeu in these messages. The condition of the Pope had grown very serisus; lis was far more dangerously ill thaii had been thus far supposed. He was suf fering from a very seveveie attaik of rheuma'ic fever; his legs were ulcerated and cave him great pain; tor the last two nights he had b?-?;n unable to sleep without the aid of powerful opiates. He was bearing his sufferings, which at times were extremely acute, with great Sitience and with woiulrl'ul cheerfulness. ut on the 13th of next month, if he lives until then, he will be eighty-two years old, and a man of that age canwotlong endure these pauis. Should he die, 1 have no doubt that the plan upon which he has decided for the election of his successor will be carried out to the letter: we shall hear simultaneously of the death of the Pope and the election of the Pope. Ttie cry will be "The Pope is dead! Long live the Pope!** But then will probably follow scenes in Rome that have not yet been witnessed there, and unless the government is stronger that it 6ecms to be, the Kci mob may succ.-ed in wreaking their vengeance in a terrible man ner. At all events, Home for the next few weeks promises to be once more the most intjr estlng spot on earth. In addition to the bronchitic affection under which the Pope has sutlercd for some time and his present attack of rheumatic fever, he lias suffered for many years from a varicose ulcer in tlie leg, the temporary closing up which is followed by epilepto d seizures of a ^?rv ex hausting kind, while its reopering, whether sj>ont.ineous or artificial, procures exemption from th se seizures. Th's safety-valve, how ever, is said to have at last tailed him, the cerebral congestia caused by the paroxysms of coughing sufficing of itself to induce anepi leptoid attack iu spite of the ulcer's remaning open.
