AILY PRESS, POKTLAND. Atnrclaj Horning, December 15, 18G6. Etonian Calhaliea-m in tin1 ttontlicrn ttlnle*. The Catholic Church, with its usual prompt intelligence, has already recognized in lie Frecdmen a class of citizens who can no t long he deprived of influence in the slate. • albolio missionaries are already at work u|> „n that pliahlc material, moulding and slmn ,,,v it tv serve the purposes of the Church, in the Catholic creed anti service there is Much to attract the mind and heart of the tio ro race. The holy relies and legends ol the saints, the confessional and the authority ol the clergy, are alike adapted to the preju dices and habits of the negro mind. The richly ornamented churches, the clerical vestments, the elahoiate ceremonies, the glor ious music, even the mystary of the Latin service, appeal powerfully to the love of dis play which is so marked an element hi the ne ;.ro character. The creoles are, with rare ex ceptions, devout Catholic! already. Their darker relatives have hitherto been more ne glected; but it is evident that an active ptop agandlsm, such as is now on foot, can hardly iail to accomplish great results among them, suppose, as is ny no means impossible, mat this impressible people should become very generally, or almost universally, members of tbe Catholic communion. The immediate re sults would undoubtedly bo good. No one will coutend that it is impossible lor a Catho lic to he a Christian, while many- will admit that upon a race like this, the influence of the Catholic religion navy lie far more powerful and general than the pure but cold er abstractions of Protestantism could possi bly secure. But any faith in a Divine govern ment, any recognition of God's law, most have some salutary and restraining power. The influence of tlie Church would to some extern purify and elevate the negro character. We believe it would also limit its develop ment, and especially its political development —using tbe word in tbe high sense. Inde pendent thought is systematically discour aged by the Catholic Church. Vet independ ent thought is the life of onr institution'. The constitution of the Church, with its hier archies and its solitary brad, is ibe re verse of democratic. The clergy are not citizens of this or any other country. All forms of government are indif ferent to them. The prosperity and aggran dizement ol tbe Church is their.sole care. If its prosperity appeared to require the over throw ot the American system, they would conscientiously labor to that end. Tin's indif ference and more or le.53 pronounced opposi tion to republican institute ns cannot fail to infect tbe laity, and so far to make them not better but worse citizens. Now the great majority of ti e Catholic clergy are, it most be assumed, honest, God fearing men. Their opinions are entitled to respectful consideration. But so equally arc the diametrically opposite opinions of the great body of the American people. We be lieve in tbe institutions which our fathers founded, and tor the perpetu.,1 maintenance of which thousands of this generation have raid down their liras. We have a right to watclr the tendencies of the Catholic faith, and so far as we believe them to be, not con sciously but nevertheless really injurious, we have a light, to oppose them, not by •violence’ not by intolerant abuse, but by clearly show iug their injurious character and adopting such counteracting agencies as are at baud. We have believed that the most trustwor thy basis for popular government Is to be found in abroad system ofpopular education. That education is not sectarian. Religious education is left to the chiirdhes and the Sun day schools. The Catholic Church alone has set itself in opposition to popular cducatiou. The Church withdraws its children from tlie public schools, for tlie express purpose of giv ing a sectarian bias to their training. This management should teach us what to do. The Church which is avowedly indifferent wheth er our experiment of popular government succeeds or falls, and which finds its account in opposing the general movement in favor of public education, will be checkmated by fos tering that very movement. Our i'reedmcn’s Aid Societies are doing a good work, but we cannot Afford to neglect any means which promise to promote the cause of education at the Soulh. We can* not afford to throw’ away tbe powerful stimu lus which a moderate educational qualifica tion for voting would offer. Such a qualifica tion may be jp>Lly required on other grounds; it is doubly important now, bicause it calls upon every man to lay tlie foundations of sell education. A man who can read and write can be reached by the current of free thought. He is not so likely to mu render his opinions to the guidance of another. He can hardly re main indifferent to tlie great events transpir ing around him. It will be a great mistake, if politicians counting on the negro vote in ItSOS, leave it in such a condition that no man can predict, wliaf. it. will be in 1k72. V.’hai oss Woman dip.—At the outbreak of the rebellion a nor then-born woman of firm Union principles lived in Alabama. Tier situ ation was so critical that her husband scut lier to her friends, promising that he would not take np arras against liis country. During the whale tour years of the v. ar shu was unable to hear from him, until on returning site, learned that he had fallen in the first, hattle of Bull Run. She then resolved in her desolation to devote herself to the welfare of the freedmen by beoomiug their tea .'her. The Christian Reg ister tells the story: “Often was she hooted at and even stoned in her walks to and from the school by rude boys or the students of an academy iii the town, though the sad veil of lier widowhood drawn closely around lier might have invited pity in stead of insult.J The good woman a ho protect ed and lodged her was perseouted'and shunned because she 'sheltered a Yankee rekooliuarm.' Insult, danger complete social isolation and hatred, Mrs.-could bear unmoved, till they threatened lier only white friend. Then shi; took refuge in a black man’s home. Finally an order from President Johnson threatened the removal of the Froedmon’s Bureau Irom the town. The officer in charge Warned Mrs. —- that her lite would not be safe one moment after the slight protection of the Bureau was withdrawn. With a sad heart she bade her colored friends‘goodby,’ packed her trunk and sat waiting one morning for the stage. The door ot lier room suddenly opened. Looking up she recognized Mr.-, one of the most in fluential men ill the county. lie’greeted her respectfully and coming hastily to where she was seated on an old box, earnestly begged her to stay ainoug them. For months he had watched her closely, and observed her great - influence for good over the colored people, ffe would do all in his |K>wer to protect her from insult; she should continue her efforts hence forth shielded by his authority. A stranger so i long to kindness and sympathy from a white man, no wonder she was overpowered, and tears were her only answer to this unlookcd 1 for reward of her patience endurance.— hha stayed. What a regiment of soldiers could not accomplish, this one weal: woman has done. Through weakness was she made strong. She has revolutionized public seniimeht in the whole country. Unflinching coura*ro and i steadfast devotion have won the victory"” ( Geoiuie Sand.—A Paris correspondent of ' the World furnishes the following: George Sand is engaged in writing a Guide ; to the Environs ot Paris for the Visitors to the Exposition, to form a part of the work to which the principal writers of France—Victor Hugo 1 Lamartine, Michelet, Quinct, #e. will oontrib- « ute. It has been erroneously stated that Theirs I ami Guizot were also engaged in procuring ar- i tides for the same book. Madame Sand’s pen is still endowed with ■ all the vigor, all the charm ofits earlier days — ' lier department in the forthcoming book tall doubtless lie the richest in imagination, the most vivid in its descriptions, for .- lie has pass- ' ed her varied and useful life in the pleasant a places the history and beauties of which s e undertaken to reveal to the sojourners T e suinmer residence of Madame S. is at Pakistan 1 where she lives with her son and daughter-in r law, „d a little granddaughter, he. esom-foi delight.

'I'lii' tti-licT Fnnil, To the Editor ok the Press: I cannot refrain from offering a single word in relation to tlie question now beiug discussed, in your columns of wiial shall be done with . the relief fund. The suggestion offered liy ‘ B.,” and sustained by “Another B.,” ae«ni» to me open to grave ubjoetions. 1 n tlie first. ph>ce, notwithstanding the faithful manner iu which the Committee have discharged their duties and the great amount of good they have been able to do, there still remains lnufthsuffering tube alleviated. The winter lias blit just be gun, and no one can foresee what legitimate calls may arise tor the disposal nt this money iuthe land, cold months that ate coming. 1 say legitimate calls, for it slyuilil not lie forgot ten that this money was given for the relief of the suffering, not to build monuments to the liberality of the givers in the sbapeof church es. There is now in existence among us an association of ladies formed for the purpose of seeking ont and relieving those eases of suf fering which, owing to the shrinking delicacy of the unfortunates, have not been thrust for ward into the public sight. This association considers its work as only begun, and is solicit ing contributions and funds. It would cer tainly seem just and proper that if there is a surplus of the general fund, some portion of it should he turned over to them to be applied to such cases. As for the . church organizations which have lost their houses of worship, I do not deny that they have to bear a great priva tion; no one can feel more deeply than I do the importance of having churches and the privilege that it is to go where one feels at home, but I think it is just as well for churches as for individuals to practice self-denial at time.- . Willi the single exception, I believe, of the Swcdenborgians, all the turned-out societies have access to places of wor ship of their own denomination, where they are welcome, therefore they arc not without Sunday privileges, and it does seem to me that in these circumstances they can better afford to wait for means to rebuild than can tlie hundreds ot invalids, of feeble old men and delicate women, who have lost all the comtcrts to which they have been accustomed and are living in narrow crowded rooms, or in the temporary houses erected for them, with thin floors and not so much as a rug to keep out the cold ; better far than the ittle children whore mothers are obliged to use anything that comes to liaud as a substitute for the warm blankets and puffs that used to cover them through the cold nights. I repeat, church or ganizations ought to lie able to make sacrifices as well as individuals. It they are good for anything, if they have their foundation iu the genuine love of God and liis worship, they will stand for awhile without anything so perisha ble us piles of brick and mortar to hold them together. A Church Member. Mr. Editor:—In your is3ue of Thursday, a correspondent who signs himself “Another B.,” advocates the division of the lund non' re maining in the hands of the Belief Committee, amongst the societies who are struggling to re build their places of worship destroyed by the great fire. ^ The honesty aii jiis intentions, aoS that he believes the greatest practical good will accrue to the community at large in this use of the fund, is, of course, beyond suspicion; but,Mr. Editor, 1 believe that I am but echoing the sen timents of a very large part of our citizens in saying, that to use the fund in this manner, Would he little bettc-r than robbery of the poor and destitute for whom it was so lilierally giv en, and for whom it was solely intended. If places of worship were built with this fund, they would bo, a.- your correspondent So eloquently states, monuments to the liberality and Christian benevolence of those who so generously came forward to our relief at the time of our sorest need, but does he realize that they would also stand as everlasting mon uments ot the shame and perfidy of the people-of our fair city, who would build their churches upon the sufferings of the destitute in our midst ? Would such places of worship be acceptable in tlie sight of God? lines your coi respondent realize thai there are many iu nut midst who, without the aid of this fund would suffer from the cold pi our lung and severe winter, and would feel tin- bit ter pangs of hunger? Let tlie fund be used by the Belief Commit tee as originally intended by the givers, to re lieve the wants of the poor and destitute, and for this purpose alone. A Friend ok the Poor. Jin. Editor:— Several communications have of late appeared in the Portlaud papers, evi dently ut forth as “feelers,” suggesting the appropriation oi the Relief Fluid by those hold ing it in trust to aid in rebuilding the elmrches destroyed iu the fire of July. We deeply sympathize with those religious societies, and with the city in this great loss, and earnestly hope they will soon be rebuilt. But. tiiis relief proposed will reflect, little hon or upon those churches, and still less on there who have accepted this sacred trust lor the re lief of the suffering. It does not yet appear that such aid is nee,led; by those well inform ed wo are assured, that in most cases the churches are abundantly a ole to rebuild, and intend to do so, as soon as certain differences of opinion can be reconciled. One parish ljas already more than twenty thousand dollars to commence with! And in every parish thore are men, who are able to do this, if they were as willing to use their own funds, as some are to take those for the purpose, which were contributed for the suffering and the homeless. , There may be one or fwo parishes that are poor, but there is wealth in the denominations they represent and they will doubtless afford re lief when appealed to. But the money iu the hands of the Belief Committee was not contributed for sucii a impose. Appeals were made for the homeless thousands if our city destitute of fond and clothing, and ho thousands given was for their relief, not to mild churches. The cry of the suffering and the homeless' :omcs to us from Quebec; our sympathies are noved; we take collections, levy contributions, ;et up fairs and send over thousands to give ■""d to the hungry and clothing to the naked. WeU, the commit tee to whom these funds are t- iii after relieving immediate suffering and milling a few shanties for the homeless turn ivor the remaining thousands held in trust by hem, to rebuild the Nunnery or Cathedral that ras burned! How would sncli a proceeding be looked up- j n by those who sent the money with their I ears and prayers? I Thus tar, scores of families iu Cortland who 1 •ere horned out, have not re eived the first - lollur. Many of then, have yet no home; their amities arc scattered among their friends iu j he city and in the country. They have not ct called for aid, and are nobly struggling to 1 ise without it. With the high wages and liundant employment they have succeeded, i •bile the season has been mild, in getting long without aid. But winter is upon us; the demand for labor i falling off. Nothing to do in our shipyards, , otbing on the wharves, nothing on onr streets, i Every day we meet men, wandering in our ] treets, seeking employment hut finding none. 1 ■ nil this will be every day growing worse and ‘ 'orse as the winter grows severer. For the i * kft - f Go : ’s poor and suffering ones, lot <he ; Fund lx- held as « sacred trust, a^Sre" j kflBe given when suffering and want, iuoon- j sequence of tlie fire, is known. Any denom ination that lias suffered loss liy the tire, ^ can, before spring, raise a fund to relieve their * sister churches, if in their estimation they real ty need hell). But to take the bread from the limigryf the : clothing truiit tlie needy, and leave tlie home less scattered or in the streets, by diverting the j Belief Fuild l'rrim hsVifithuate design.Ps-pre teucc ot ' huikling a house for the Lord,” would he a breach of trust iu thoseholding the funds, j and reflect only shame and reproach on any , church mean enough to seek such aid, *** Pier*’ iUugaxiuce.
