Not alms-giving but charity, that considerate regard and frank kindliness which the word originally signified, at a time when some people really loved their neighbors and before philanthropy was in vented. Philanthropy is a very grand thing, no doubt, embracing the whole race in its as pirations but in constant danger of forgetting individuals, warmly sensitive to the interests of the antipodes, hut somewhat forgetful ol the people at the next door. Charity is a fine thing at the head of subscription lists, and conveniently expressed in Federal currency, an important item in the excuse account, easily calculated beforehand as a certain small percentage of tire year's outlay. The New Testament charity is of another sort—charity that snffereth long and is kind, the quality of which Paul wrote, saying, “though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and have not charity, it prohteth me nothing.” Here are eight servant girls who have been ruined in this city and have taken refuge within a few week? in the Aims House. It is not charity in the old sente which relieves their immediate wants, supplying food and shelter lor them and their unhappy offspring. It is in. some degree no doubt the kick of sneli charity which has left them to fall into sin and misery. What life can be more lonely than that of a maid-of-ali-vvork in a small family! Under the most favorable circum stances she is not a member of the family.— She has no lot or part in their enjoyments. Condemned to solitary confinement in the kitchen, without mental resources to make the heavy hours eveu endurable, wbat won der if she seeks the company of others of her age and station'/ Ignorant and inexperienc ed, what wonder if she falls into bad company and bad ways i* it is tue duty ot housekeepers to do some thing to alleviate the monotony of such an existence. The task is difficult, no doubt. The stupidity and frowardness of servant girls are oltener spoken of than the actual hardships of their dreary, unsocial life. But charity sultereth long and is kind. Kindness alone would go far. It is not kind to treat a human being under your own root, as you treat a stove or a clothes-horse, as a conveni ent and uselul m. chine, a part of the kitchen furniture, to be shut up in vacuity and silence until wanted. It is the duty of a housekeeper to become acquainted with her servants, to learn their histories, to study their characters, to know how they spend their evenings, to provide them with rational amusements at home, to make their apartments reasonably pleasant. So doing, any housekeeper will be sure to secure better service for one thing, so long as human nature is human nature. It will not do to proceed to the other ex treme, to undertake arbitrarily to control the disposition ot a servant's time. Even ser vants have rights. They wiU say that the work is worth the wages, and that if the work is properly done the employer has no right to make any further requirements. YVnat is more important, they are unquestionably right in so saying. The weekly wages give the employer no right to claim anything more than punctual fultilmentofdally duties. But the fact that an inexperienced young person is brought into intimate relations with you, is domiciled under your roof, is exposed in your service to great danger, while it give3 you no right to invade her liberty beyond the terms of the contract freely made, imposes upon you nevertheless the duty ol using all the Influence which maturer years and superior education may give you,to protect and save her. If them is tress is worthy to be an example, her indirect influence ought to be very great. But like mistress, like maid. If the mistress be scliish, exacting, indilierent, these qualities will be reflected in the kitchen looking-glass with the utmost fidelity—unless indeed it is an angel in disguise that washes the dishes, and that we believe is a rare occurienee. Do unto others as you would he done by. And so ends tbis lay sermon. Papal Intolerance. The national Home of Representatives, af ter debate, has refused to make an appropri ation to support a mission at Rome. The avowed cause of this proceeding is the recent display of religious intolerance by the Papal court, resulting in the removal of the Ameri can chapel outside the walls of Rome. The action of the House was taken, we believe, without official knowledge of the affair. The best newspaper account of the matter has been furnished by the Rev. Dr. Prime, editor of the New York Observer, in a letter to that paper which we copy as follows: Rome, Jan. 4,180.7. If you have thought the Inquisition was a thing of the Jead past, a monster of the dark ages now known only among the sauria and luegatheria ot a former cycle, just read what 1 am about to write: You are doubtless aware that Protestant worship is not allowed in public assemblies in the city of Rome, nor, indeed, in the Roman States. The only exception to this restriction is that the Ambassadors of foreign Govern ments, resident in Rome, having a chapiain of Uieir own ill, oi course, worship in their own way, and if they choose to have a public service in their own houses, on the Sabbath day, no objection is made. Under this pro tection the Russian, the Prussian, the Ameri can and other representatives of their respec tive governments have for many years had Divine service in their houses, and if a chapel has been opened in another part of the city, under the flag or name of the embassy, it would be regarded as a privile ed place. The British Government has no diplomatic rela tions with Rome. Why it is thus excluded I do not know. It lias been said that Mr. Odo Russell was sent here as Minister, but when the Pope sent a priest to England to repre sent him at the Court ot St. James the mis sion was declined. Mi. Odo Russell has since visited here in a nou-otlicial character, and is very much laughed at for his nei/otiations with the Pope. His Holiness has a vein of quiet humor in him, and has amused himself aud the world too, by talking to Mr. Odo Rus sell about an asylum for himself in Malta or plkpwhprp whp.ii hp hail nn mnrp iilna nt* rr,v ing than toChina or the moon. And tor forty years past the British have been tolerated in lidding worship in a haylolt, finished oil' as a chapel, just outside the wall by the Porto del Popolo. They call it the English Church, and it is generally supposed they are outside the wall because they cannot get the privilege of being inside. But they are merely there because they cannot find a more commodious place, and they have no license to worship there or elsewhere. No public worship, except the ltomish, is tolerated by law under the do minion of the Pope of Rome. But the prac tice is better than the law. It has grown in to a custom of the authorities to wink at or overlook the religious assemblies of strangers, visitors at Rome; and as much of the money brought into Rome and spent here is that of the people who come to see the city, it is the interest of the authorities to be indulgent to their guests. If Protestant service id the Ital ian language were set up it would be soon set down. For six years and more, the Scotch Presby terians have had a station here. Indeed, they have two; one the Free Church, the other the Church of Scotland. The chaplains have held service every Sabbath, in their own apart ments, with a few of their countrymen, rarely more than thirty or forty being present. No sign or notice is allowed to he put up on the house to designate it as the olace of worship 'the stranger finds it advertised at his hotel, and, coming to ttie number, prowls up the dark, stone stairways to some very upper chamber; and there, as stcretly as the early Christians in the catacombs of Rome, or in the dens and caves of the earth, he finds a lew like-minded, who piay and hear the Word. These services disturb no one, and the authorities do not notice them. They aiTect to ignore their existence altogether. On Saturday, JDee. 29,1806, the chaplains of these two missions were sei ved with the following warning, issued by the British Con sul. 1 copy it verbatim lrom the original, now before me: British Consulate at Rome, Dec. 11,1866. Bir: It is my official duty to inform you that Mousiguore Raudi, Governor of Rome, has just communicated to me that you are bolding illegal religious meetings in your liouse, which, you must know, are prohibited "le Roman law, and that your have thus S3d yourself in the power of the Inquisition. for arrest aud imprisonment. But as the Monsignoro permits me to give j you this notice, 1 would seriously advise that you at onco put an end to these innovations I aud that you visit Monsignore Band! at Mouti Citorio, and assure him that you will again re,mat these illegal acts. \ h"e iuRus way you may possibly suspend Vour er - which is now hanging over you. * ®X1U> 1 am, sir, your obedient servant (Signed) Joseph Hevebn, British Consul. To Rev. James Lewis. I will not characterize this letter as it mer its. Instead of expressing ins regret at Ik ing compelled to give such a notice, and offering liis official and personal aid to secure a favor able consideration of the case, this Consul evidently takes special pleasure in being able to bring his countrymen under censure, and it is not strange that be Is accused of being the instigator o' the offensive measure. How ever ihui may be, the letter is unworthy any official, and would be properly noticed by the expulsion from office ot its autiior. But it was actually served upon the two Scotch preachers. One of them, Rev. Mr. William son, was also informed by the woman whose apartments he had hired, that she would not allow the people to eome into the house for public worship any more; aud of course he his chapel"”11 *”th6 WoUKUJ t*°Wer and closed Tne omer minister, Mr. Lewis, called upon the Lluke ot Argyle, Mr. Cardwell, Mr. Glad stone, Mr. Odo Russell, and other distinguish ed British gentlemen here, and took counsel ottheni, but it was not prudent foe them to interfere. He then went direcily to the Gov ernor of Romo, in whose bauds this mallei would lie, aud laid the case before him. The result was that Mr. Lewis became satisiicd that the Roman Government wouul rather 1:0 know anything of his movements, and he might preach aud pray, in liis own house, as much as lie liked, it he did not make a noise about it. He returned homo and the uexi day held liis usual service; and I had the pleasure of hearing him preach trom the wo.ds, -‘And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house (in Home,) and received ail that came unto lihn, preaching the king dom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with ail eonh dcuce, no man forbidding him.”—Acts xxviii., an. He has heard nothing (hi ther from the Con sul, and nothing irom the Inquisition. Up to this time it was not known that such a tri bunal was iu existence hen. But it is so an nounced by a British official, and its exercise threatened to suppress Pioiestant preaching. It is uot supposed that anything more win come ol the matter, and the general opinion is that the complaint out ot which the actiou grew, was made by some English cou-ert to uoinanisin, who would signalize his change ol base by a mean assault in the daik, upon his countrymen ot* another taith—straugers in Uo.ne, worshipping God alter the custom ol their lathers. It Mr. Lewis gets into the bands of the In quisition, I will let you know. He has asked me to pleach tor him next Sunday; audit these letters suddenly come to a close you may guess what’s the matter. Sati-bday, Jan. 5,1867. Worse than our worse tears—the blow has been struck,an 1 Presby tenaus are ordered to desist irom public worship iu ail tue papal do mi nions I Mr. udo Bussell, as the actiDg representa tive ol the British Government, nad an inter view with Cardinal Autoueui, the Prime Min ister of the Pope. Mr. Bussell expressed his surprise on being informed that au order had been issued requiring the 8cotch Presbyteri ans to desist Irom tue worship they had been bolding in the private houses ol lueir pastors, lie asked the Cardinal it he was aware that these meetings had been held tor six years past, without objection being made by any one, and il tUere were any special reason why they were now so summarily suppressed. The Cardinal intimated, iu reply, that the Govern ment had for many years post been under re straint ; but now that foreign protection was removed, they wouid administer il according to their own views ofduty ; mat one Englisn chapel was open, aud that was enough lor the English iu home. air. Bussell said the Cardinal must be aware that the suppression of Presbyterian worship would prouuce a great excitement in Britain, and tne action oi the Poutiheial Government would be loudly condemned. This sugges tion, however, produced no effect, anu Mr. Bussed remarxeu mat the Americans are al lowed to have a piace ol worsntp.

Thk Fortification Bill.—The loss ol the Fortification Bill in the national House oi Representatives, reported by telegraph yester day, cuts off appropriations for Forts beummel and Gorges in Portland harbor, Fort Popliam on the Kennebec, Fort Constitution at Ports mouth, Forts Winthrop and Warren in Bos ton harbor, and many ether works on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, besides the sur vey of the northern and northwestern lakes which was included in the same bill. The amendment appropriating $150,000 tor two new works constituting an outer lice of de fence for Portland harbor, was rejected before I the bill was thrown overboard, and apparent I ly has but a slight chance of resurrection._ I The hill itself will probably come up again and pass. The proposed appropriations lor works in Maine were for Fort bcammel $100, 000, Fort Gorges $75,000; Fort Popham $5o! 000. Fort Knox on the Penobscot was omit ted, how or why we know not. The Taney correspondent of the Argus has found in the Massachusetts reports an opinion of the Supreme Court of that State, delivered in 1810, and stating that “the slat e v as the pro|ierty of his master as much as hig ox or his horse; he had no civil rights but that of protec tion from cruelty.” This he compares to Judge Taney’s declaration that at the time when the constitntion was framed negroes (not merely slaves') were regarded as inferiors having “no rights which the whito man was bound to re spect,” and proceeds as follows: It may be, that these two Chief Justices were in error in regard to the opinion entertained of the negro in the earlier days. If so if, is per fectly proper to expose their error and vindi cate historical trutu. Nobody can complain of that. Nobody would have any right to com plain. Hut it is not honest—it is malignant dishonesty, to assert that these courts held that such was the present opinion in regard to the negro race, and such his present condi tion. No, the courts did not hold that such was the “present opinion” in regard to the negro race; but Chiet Justice Taney did hold that° such is the present condition” of that race, using these words, to which we once more iuvite ti e attention ot our rather thick-headed friend: No one,we presume, supposes thatanychauge in public opinion or feeling, in relation to tais unfortunate race, in the civilized nations ol Europe or in this country, should induce the court to give to the works of the Coustiiut on a more liberal construction in their mvor than they were intended to bear when the instrument was formed and adopted. —The best Cashmere shawls, the long shawls with plain ground, crimson, purple, blue, gTeen or yellow— greeu are best—never cost less than £135 a pair, and are never sold singly, European an<l Worth American Hallway. \Ve give below the text of the bill reported to the national House of liepreseutaiives by Mr. Patterson of New Hampshire, allowing the claims against the General Government, to the amount of $2,300,000, which have been made over by Maine and Massachusetts to the uropeau and North American Kail w ay Com Pau>, t° assist in the construction of the road rom Bangor to st.
