THE NEW YORK HERALD. WHOLE NO. 6793. ARCXBISHOP HUGHES. Bis Sermon Yesterday at the Cathedral. THE OOGMA OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION. Troposal to Commemorate the 8th of December. ASSAULTS ON THE CHURCH. *0., Ac., Ac. Archbishop Hughes returned from hU journey to Rome on Tuesday last, in tbe Atlantic. Ho had gone there on invitation of tbe Holy Father, to participate in the pro reeding* of the Council or Coaventioa of Bishops, in reference to the much talked of an) but ltttle understood dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin. That great point tettlel. he has returned to give hi? attention to the in tor* at* of bU archiepucopate, and to those questions, lay and spiritual, which attract no mucb pub lie interest at thia particular epoch. Yesterday bring the first Sabkath since bis return, there waa a very gene ial desire manifested on the part of tbe community, as well of other denomination* ?? of his own fold to see and hear him, and to learn hia views on matters and things in general, and on the topi's of the Immaculate Conoeption in particular. It had not bnen announced that he would have made bia appearance in hi* pulpit yesterday, but yet it waa generally expected that he woul<\ And so St. Patrick's Cathedral was the shrine] to wbicb thousands of our papulation yenteaday bent their step*, albeit many among them were unused to appearing in that or any other Roman Cathol'c temple. Onr reporter was among the number, and with difficulty ? so densely thronged waa the odific* ? was able to procure admission. But the Roman Catholic clergy of this city are extremely and exception ally civil and attentive to the press, and did not even close the door of tbe sanctuary itself against the servant of the public. It was l'alm Sunday, and the news and aisles were plentifully supplied with branches 4 of that shrub, which had previously, it is to be presum ed, received tbe usual benediction. Tbe churc'a wore its usual aspeet, it not being the custom to drape it unit <>Md Friday, we believe. The mass, toe, was the ordinary tigh ma.-s celebrated every Sunday, i the only difference being tbat it was xome what longer, tbe history of the Passion, as re lated by tbe Evangelists, being introduced and read at length. The Rev. Francis McNlerny officiated at mast, assisted by the vs. Wm. Starrs, Vicar General; Tho*. /I. Preston, Secretary; Thos. Burning. John Barry and John Hennes v. Archbishop Hughes occupied the throne during tbe celebration of tbe first portion of tbe mass. He did not wear the state robes of bis high office, but the ordinary under-dress, If we may so call it, of an arctbishop. consisting of tbe tunic, and a lace cape, aor mounted by a smaller purple velvet cape. Instead of tb? golden mitre, he wore on his heal the barita, or ?.?el vet cap. We were pleased to see tbe reverend m;m ' appearing in such excellent health. He seems much improved by his Kuropenn tour, and, as a gentleman be side us observed, must have left Rome immediately a'ter tbe close of the carnival, and availed himself of a trav- I oiler's license to take what fare he could get. After the reading of the Gospel of the dsy he ascended the pnlplt * with a firm step, and, wltb excellent intonation and for cible delivery, commenced his SERMON* Ani a Terr great multitude ?pr?>?il their fra orient* In tb? way, aud other* cut dcwn branched from the tree? mail ?trewfi them in tte way. , And the multitude tbftt want be'ore and that followed, crl?*1 out UTlUK. llofnBM to IK- u..? ..f DhM. Ulnwl if h<* 'hat coineth in the name of the Lord. Hostnna in the highest Th? narrative in the Holy Script ores, an read In the ?ami of Palm .Sunday, in the hiitory of the Paaalon of nur Saviour. It begins with the 21st chapter of St. Mat ikew and concludes in the 23d. and la appropriately read at tbi* aaaaon. But the word* which we liav 1 Jaet read a- our text are thoae which are especial ly applicable to the eolemnity of the day. They ?re the rrcord of the enthusiasm of the people, seeing '< the Son of God entering into the Holy city. They ?re the record of that mutability of human affection* which ihowi that possibly the ?*me voice which cr'ad ont " Hosanna," cried out a few days afterward* " I<et fcim be crucified. " Nevertheless, the church, in order o imprest upon you the great tiuth ? that of our Ssvi ar submitt.oir to the humiliation of the passion, which wan not by neceasity, but by hie own choice, and a* the taaaifeatation of hi* love ? the church, I nay, ha* pre served thoae word* that you, following day by day, through the ecclesiastical year, the course of the my* ?riea of the earthly life of the Hon of God ? may pay in weiooaung btm to your heart*. llo*anna! blessed ia ho who comet h in the qame of the Ijord." In ahort, the \lrns you bear are signiflcaat of triumph a* well a* of .y. The palm is the lymbol which, along the aialea of > e catacomb* distinguishes among the aainta who were M there to aleop In ring the >rst age* of the church, those 'm> died a* martyrs to their faith. The branch of palm ad the vial of blood engraved on their tomb* diet in If h the martyr* above all other*, and *ymboliz* victory. Tietoty ! And yet it leem* strange for me to ?peak to you to-day on the subject of victory, sines it is aot tny- purpose in this connection to ipeak of the vic tory of the .uon of God, who triumphed over death and the grave and thus became a conqueror; bat of hie church, which inherit* the viciadtudes of his life. That church I* heir to his suffering*, and yot at the ssms time it Is triumphant. It Is of It I now design to speak It might otherwiM item at range to you that I ahould wpeak of triumph, or of palm* which symbolise It, at :t moment wbeu you are a?*ailed in the piivate circle* and lathe public journal* with imputation* of dlahonor, w.th revlhag# with calumniei, with (landers, and when oven thoee wtio should be, and who are by the very object of their creation, the appointed guardian* to regula e principle* of eternal justice, have them fielvea, in puthing their authority to an extreme, attempted to iovado the simple right* and liberties of the Church of Jesus Christ. Thi?, then, doe* not seem a moment to apeak of triumph; and yot it ia precisely the moment whan that aubject Is proper. It i* ao ? beoanae what do these asaaults prove r rhey prove that the or dinary mean* are now conaldered not sufficient to arrest ^e profresa of truth on the thoatre of free dlscnssioa T prove that th' re i* ao way of patting down these * -d teachers of the doctrine of the ton of God? thoae are substituted for his own presence ? the church, they rove more particu'arly that if the hostile mg* of those who kaow nought of her divine attri - .(*?? aad of hsr majeetic beauty, who believe that elie i ' .. to u roe of corruption, that she ia the enemy of the a nan kind, that aho is the adversary of all that : en 'htaoed, or grand in conception or performance, can ad ao other mode of attacking her; ahe 1* beyond the ?sch tl their feeblo attacks. And if they Sad thi" ? ?*r*e nsce??ary, is not this a time of triumph' But l *re is siUI more, deeriy beloved brethren. Lcokiag | er the h.atory of this charch, of that miraculous L idety, one. birmonioos, universal, independent, that pK Cbilitlaa society called the church? kxiklag, I *ay. I ret the annals of her history and of what ab* ha* taax-d through, you percoive how cloe-ly ahe resembles a ? |her history, the history of the life of ber IMvine J founder. Her* Is a succession of trials and of triumph ^ K va is. Uks hi*, an everlastiag 'sufTenag on the part of 4 the world, and wi the part of the enemies o' tmtli. And , n the part of tie church, aa on the part of Christ, there U >a perpetual triumpi. And who is it that caa reeoitec' | or a moment her vicisaitadee when the Aret Apostle* en ered the gale* of Koine? ru imperial mistress of the world? acc ? ulered the lists witn the p jwera of thateae , my whan i'eter ei tared the Uats wub dread Nero, who, I -0 caa recollect that, aad aot reeogaWe ber Divine orl in ?

Watchiag the auceeaatan of her ?a ret. during tse first three hundred year*, aad ageing that the whcis force of that empire which had subjected the aatioas of the world was directed towarda the extin f alshment of tha young life of Chrlatlaa society, we Sol that that society grew aad i acreaaad tUe more, and that that mighty Coioesu* of aa empire crumbles into dnst Thas It is that while, oa the part of the world the abureh ia, and has been, aad ever will he ssaillsil by a.l xt>" bad paaaioas of the hcaaaa heart, allied With r *\ ftl-led with aetaace aad allied with w*a<th . while ahe Mat, like |M( Matter, . jTar for the present, nevertheless, at th? proper tune, slie triumph*. But there if a special reason why the uplifted palm In your hind* to-day should be regarded by you u a token of triumph? the oelebration of a victory. That victory la the great event which has ?o lately occurred. It iit the definition 01 a doctrine which, 'although believed as a private sentiment in the heart of the church for eighteen huouied years, bad not yet before received the official ?teal of tbe church. I speak of the doctrine of the Imma mlate Conception if the ble neo Virgin Mary. Ani the ground of tilumph In reepect to tbu topic is, nut that any definition, or any belief could make that most distin guiehed and noit elevated of all Uod'<r intellectual ens? iuien, whether in heaven or on eartli, morw lteaorwd, or that suy definition could add to her giory or to her prerogative*, but that all tbe heresial by Which the church ban t* en assailed from the beginning- oootaim, without one single exception, in the errore wUieh they teach . ome principle calculated to weaken or deatroy. and, if possible, to bring into degradation, in the eat tat - tion of men, the ever bleated Virgin Mother of God. Tha' baa been more particularly tbe cut within the la.it tlire hundred jean. The leant ancient of the here* lee which bare been pr'ac bed is that rne especially which made it a point to wound her and cut ber ofi. Tlieir tneory wan to adore her bob, indeed, but at the une tiui?. by way of increasing hi* honor, they would ueprt-ctate L<*r preroga tives unci almoat call into que*M<>n the nttributex which reader her. ax the servant of God, high reepect And tbey thought they were makiag great progress at first, because they pretended to reject thing *, the mere e* ctescenresof time, which had grown Into the holy practice* o( tbe Cathotic cbureb. Then after these carae other*, toe ing other error** untouched by the first ratcrmera, until floe My every root rne of the church, even to tbe divinity of theiton o( Uod, haa been not only aiaputed but denied and rejected under the plea of making Christianity pure and at the same time rational and worthy of intelligent beings. Tbsse errore have gone ae tar ai they poasiMy could go. And, on tbe other band, while the church bai maintained thoao doctrines which she always had maintained, It is remarkable that in proportion to tbe .issiults of the adversaries of truth tbe faith of her oh 11a re n beoomes more and mora warmly intense to wards every dogma which ber enemies had denied, and among them mora espeoially the hoaor of the bleseed Virgin Mary is, I will not say among tbe Catholic* of thla community but of tha world, more lovingly up held. Among the oppenentaof the Church no Mttind is heard no* except the sound of hostility to the pr? rogatives of Mary Catholic* may hare f>und themselves al time* under the necessity, at it were, through the aente of expediency at least, of not urging thladootrine, butthey believeu It none tbe lees. Fiuauy, atatims when many of these Idle speculators. these philanthropists without Uod, these humanitarians without any divini ty , tbese men who look at human nature as a kin l of improvable upper strata of animal life, and have no key to .t? mysteries? these men who believed at last, 1 *up pohe. that the Church of Christ bad fulfllle.1 her high mission, and was now a thing which had out lived the period of its usefulness and should be cast aside? the Churcli cf Christ determined a great point of faith. Ah! let these men meditate on .be spectacle which was wit nessed in home on the 8th of Itoctmber, 1S64, and they will probably understand that the church I* not dead ? that the church is not old ? that the church has not outlived its usefulness ? that the live* and refgns. and that at she has seen the rise and the ruin of em pires and dynaatiee during eighteen hundred jean ? herself unmoved ? so she will live to wit ness all the changes and vlclasl tude* of these silly spe dilations on human philosophy and human humanity, by which these philanthropists would attempt to come to the relief ol mankind, by raisin,; and elevating this fallen and otherwise depressed aud unhappy race. It was my privilege, dearly beloved brethren, to be among the favored oiaex wbo witnessed the assembly ot oishops at Rome. As it was not my desire to pronounce any thing like a formal discourse to day, I shall perhaps bel ter fulfil your ceairaa if 1 give you in brief a narrative of thin#- ss they occurred, in connection with this great subject ol universal joy and triumph. I will therefore proceed to do so. As I have remarked, for the last three bundled years, but particularly since tbe beginning of this century, those who were most nearly in com munii.n with God? the bishops, or many of tb* bltbr.pt, the piiesta, and holy person* oevoted to religion? expressed outwardly tbeir great desire that tbe sovereign l'ont'fT should define as an article of faith that belief which bad been floating from the beginning on the sea of Catholic tradition, and abiding in the Catho lic heart, with reference to the Immaculate Conception. Tbe Hol> Father entertained with favor the expression of this sentiment . and during the period of his exile from be. i .etho ton. lis of the apostles, whan at tiaeta, be Issued an encyclical letter to till tbe bUhopa of cbriflten *iom, requiring or requesting theui to furnish him with a tVidarmtton of ilte n*ntlBM?lkt wbinl, prevail**! auioag their e'ergy and people on the subji-ot. Uf course It re quixtil a long tlmo to iec<ive answers to such a let er, sent to tbe various parts of the earth; but little by little, one alter another, these responses caaM la, to the number ol. I think, 564, from so tnanv bish ops, scattered throughout the world ; and of these there were less than fifty whose writers considered that, although 1lie doctrine was true, ana was believed by ih* m and bv their people, l was not expectant to ce fine it at that moment There were only lour out of that Immense number whoee wri'ars were not pr-pxred for the definition. These letters are published, an i con atitute an aggregate of nine octavo voiumea. And still, owing to the difficulty of access in such remote and pagan lands as some of the blahope dwell in. th?y bad not yet received the encyclical letter, or had not been ablt to forward their answer. These letters having been received, the lioly Father, even then, while yat at Uaeta, appointed a commission of twenty of the most laarnel theologians, tor the purpose of Investigating everything which history had recorded on this subject. rne*e ? gain, alter their return, were aided by others In Rome and finally, after much prayer and fasting and eupplicatirn of God, both by himself and ?>y other* whom he required to unite with him the Holy Father determined? no doubt under the Divine inspiration ? to make that solemn decla ration of the doctrine. For this purpose ha Invited a oertain number of bishope, so that the epiacopaoy of ascb country might be more or lets represented, to assemble at home. He did not invite many beeau.se he was aware that to some bishop* It would be a mutter of great in convenience to go, and be knew that anything like an Invitation or formal request would be corresponded with, no matter at what sacrifice Nevertheless even thla. for some dsy* previous to tbe Hth of December there weie assemble*!, from day to day, some 1M bishop- of tbe Catholic church, representing every nation, and, I may say, every tongue and tribe uader the sky. These had come together, and the question was submitted to them, not indeed as to tbe doetrtne, for that tbey had already been the first to profess, nor as to the appropriateness or fitness of the time? these two points wera withheld ? but as to the form and words of what is called the "bull" ? the form and articles ol the proclamation In whlsh this doc trine wts to be define*;, *? it bad been drawn up by tha theologians. It was this which was submitted to them. This it waa tbeir duty to canvaas, paragraph by para graph, line by line; and tbey did so, Having for pur pose simply to sift out and examine and probe whether any authority had been quoted in lupport of the doc nine, which authority eould be questioned. It was their piovinse to see that no slight error of the theo loclans should Introduoe a doubtful testimony in sup port of sacb a doctrine. Oh' dearlv beloved brethren, what a spectacle was tbe meeting of these bishops' All were kindly received bv tbe Holy Fathar. Ail as sembled In a public ball adjoining tbe great St. I'eter's. There waa no Introduction necesfiry. On tbe second, third and fourth days, there came in ottsr bishops, travel-worn, wbo had ccme from the distant f?a-t or from the far ofi South. 1 be?e men, who had journeyed thousands and thousands of mllea, had but Jast time to refresh them selves sad put on tbeir episcopal robes before they walked into th* assembly, tbey took part in the discus sion of tbe matter before the body in tha vary hour within which tbey bad arrived. There waa no com paring of ae>te? aa to what each one believed ? there was no question or high doctrine or low doctrine ? there waa no Interrogation as to what school oca belonged or as to wbat had been tbe influent* which tbe sentiments of the government, er the effect of the church North or foutb, or Fast or W*'at, tad bad upon the minds of these who came to take part in tbe proeeediaas of that augnst aeeembly. There waa tha oneness, the unlver sallty of truth? one heart, one faith, and one laa gjage. If tvery bishop had spoken bis mother tongue, wtat a jargon would bave been there ! What an Imitation of the *c?m ?' the Tower of BaSel ' But there w?i OH language uied? the language of tbe church aod a faitbfai aod a truthful oaa la that language, by which ? \?tt biM.op under atood tha other, and read hi* thought* without ambiguity. There waa no time. I lay. (or intro<ioctiona or making acqoaiatancee. but they were able to rea.I each other ? countenance* And than, baring transacted the bualnea* for wtuah they came tber returned home each to the foi l he had left behind, without? with a few enception* ? having ma.te the ac ({uaintance of even the brethren whom thee had met it tint aaaembly. Haally came the day for the promulfa tioo ?f tha dogma.
