breaking forth in Invectives atfalnut
them, and by the declaration of UM! all
tho French clergy tmaU'd them with
Indignation and contempt. Hut follow

turned to their elevation atraln, ruling
Louis XIV., by MalnUnon and tho
Father Lachaluc, who was very influ
ential over tho mind of tho widow of
SeaiTon, who, dying, ceded his power
to the Father Letolllor. Tho Edict of
Nantes, which sheltered tho Protest
ants, was shamefully revoked; Ithe
Jesuits profaned the cemetery of Porto
lloyal; the Hull Untgonitus, provoked
by them, produced 80,000 letters orders
against tho Janacnlsts; Jouvenoz, his
torian of the Jesuits, placed the assas
sins of our kings In tho number of
martyrs, and in 1723 1'oUirJ the Great
drove them out of his territory. The
Jesuits were reduced to poverty, and In
1"")3 the bankruptcy of the Father
Lavallete made known to F.uropo their
common riches and bad faith. In 1757,
Louis XV. perished at tho hands of
Damiens, a new regicide, a native of
Arras, and educated by the Jesuits in a
city where they exorcised full power;
his confessors were Jesuits and de
signers against France as accomplices
with a similar purpose.
In 1753, tho king of Portugal was
assassinated lu consequence of a mutual
oath by the Father Malagrlda, Matus
and Alexander; the parliament pro
ceeded judiciously against them and
they weii! expelled. In 17(12, the parlia
ment of Paris suppressed them.
On the 9th of Sopti tuber, 1767, they
were expelled from Peru by the Viceroy
Amaty Junlent, after PH) years eta)
llbhnu nt in that country, by order of
the government of Spain, dated at
Pradoon the 5th of April, 1707.
On the Hi st. of July, 1773, they were
abolished forever by Clement XIV.,
after having carefully studio! their his
tory and doctrines for the space of four
years. The church was united for ttieir
degradation and dt s'j-uction the whole
world repelled and cursed them; is it to
be believed that they succumbed to all
this? No! Their enemies are thee
who have ceased to exist; they have
preached reghiide for so long a time,
nothing to thorn is the cost of so mon
strous a crime this crime which no
"human law can foresee, this crime that
must stain the world for that, which
but none will disown, committed upon
the person of Poi e Clement XIV., the
vicar of Jesus Christ and successor of
St. Peter (so-called) died poisoned!
Scarcely bad the stranger put his foot
on the soil of France when the Jesuits
appeared by their own footsteps, al

Presenting themselves among the
people under the guise of missionaries,
but in a short time they threw off the
mask, preaching the counter-revolution
a.nd ultramontanism. Monthouge and j
Saint Archeuil were quartered generals
of the order of "The Fathers of the
Faith," humbled during the reign of
Louis XVII., who were nick named
"Sectaries of Voltaire," manifesting to
their death, dominated the throne of
Charles X. and precipitated bis fall.
Obliged to renounce the light of day,
the holy fathers returned to their sub
terranean mine. Denying their own
existence, they annulled all that was
possible, but did not desist from turning
anew to power; annihilated by the
revolution of 1830, re-establishing them
selves little by little, and hoping for
victory, for they counted with more
arms than Briareus to the side of
calumny, hypocrisy and falsehood.
Two learned professors gave the eig'

be given to them for the prompt notes
of alarm, that tho snares tf Jesuilimn,
of new iie'. Irons covering which had
cuvervd the world. "Who arc the
Jesuits?" exclaimed everybody; "let us
light them now!" The Jesuits arc a
monstrous boiiy, illegal, and also anti
canonical. This Imdy Is fictitious in
France, and does not dwell here, but by
its cunning, being In continuous rebel
lion agAlnst the laws for which they
have been ImiiIhIioJ and proscribed.
For everywhere the clandestine place
is, Ills a post of oWrvution. At lis
ow n time It Is ecclesiastical und secular,
regular and secular, of all classes and
of all religions; then even In Protestant
It has Its alliliaU's. The famous General
Ulecl manifested that its true name
was tho "What Is it-"'
The order of the Jesuits had devoted
themselves to poverty, but accumulated
continually. App tinted confessors and
physicians to the soul, they were Its
porvertcrs; they valued its moral influ
ence to augment its riches with gifts
and cunning advantages approaching
the pillows of the dying to sjieitk of
holy things, and terrorizing with the
Infernal to ut last obtain a testamentary
will that dispossessed the widow and
orphans, claiming tho titlo of "Pro
tector of Kings," they gave the ex
ample to tho regicide; they were armed
with the most audacious privileges,
ul tramontanes, against laws, kings
magistrates and priests like themselves.
Passive instruments of the popo or of
the general, they were independent of
all ecclesiastical authority; they de
pended on no other than Rome; devoted
buffoons and able dliectors; they knew
how to move, terrorize and Bubjugato
the Ignorant, but were weak and in
dulgent towards the powerful of the
earth; converting their crimes Into
vlitues, and always having a dis
tinguished person at their service.
"ii est arec ie del uecoiniuodemcnts'"
"There are composures in heaven"
they exclaimed, and pretended that the
gospel was tho same with morality. In
their object to become rich, they were
either hypocrites or incautious, but
either one or another they were the
most humble of agents.
In Its code there was only one unpar
donable crime; not being that of the
parricide, the assttfsln, the sacrilegious,
robber, incestor or violator. That of
scandal, only! Corrupter of the faith
and dogma, of the ecclesiastical customs
and discipline; bold to present lu the
pulpit i s cauistries with the assured
guarantees of being the true doctrine.
Manu'acturers in Asia and America
of idolatrous rites, we have seen in its
dark missions its pretended symbol
with the savages, and in the same
moment of singing victory at the arrival
of Protestantism; and all the courage,
all the self-denial of its missionaries
was but to open a road to the Cilvinlsts
or tho English. One only country
whore they remained was Paraguay,
where one of them was proclaimed king;
Paraguay, which offered the imago of
nothing and the t.tmb.
L t us write with the eloquence of
Qiinet: "How tranquilly to my coun
try have I invited an alliance, that
such a price to pay to them the most,
and none can notice that we are guarded
for others having the experience with
preference, that the most infamous
people of Europe, those of the leant
credit and authority are of the habita
tion of the society of Loyola, and
that we shall not be worn out until sus
pended by that poisoned sleep which
for two centuries has prevailed In Spain
and South America."
How many have been taken by Jesuit
ism? How many others have perished?
There is no rest beneath its shade, for
the shade of the manzanlllo is death.
We have said that the Jesuits are the
destroyers of dogmas, and the cita'ions
we make in this book prove it; we read
the "hundred easy devotions," a book
created for the superstitious without
religion; for the men who desire to
have one foot in paradise and the other
in bell; for they at one instant cannot
reform within and consecrate them
selves to prayer; but that they who de
sire ta be saved without any labor and
without abandoning a life of orgies and
of pleasure. Who are theje who crea e
proselytes, and for all find excuses,
making religion a victim of their doc
trines, guilty indigencies and alliances
earnal or political, so notorious and de
plorable, Eaying to the rich libertine
"Apply to me and I will Bave you at
little cost," and to the Virgin, saluting
her in this manner: To those who rise
up "Good morning, Mary! and good
night! to those who retire, or without
I'ftlng a scapular or a mcrrd heart."
All this Is said without our perceiving
how ridiculous are our beliefs anl bow
uMra Is Christianity!
Who are they? The agents of espoln
age, intrigue and accusations; the
prime movers of the leagues, civil want
and dragonniides schisms, murderers:
that Is what they arc! IncarnaUi enem
ies tif legitimate liherty, partners of
desMitism; that Is what thev uri.-! U s
turters of the peac t of all states and of
all families, seducers and conspirators;
Instructors ot the assassins of kings;
authors of slavery and the stolidi'y of
peoples; vassals and oppressors In the
name of God to jkv8, kings, peoples
ami tit the most holy and Illustrious
men; that is your history! In vain we
seek for a crimo that they have not
committed or excused. Where are
yo.ir works? Perhaps you can cite the
noble e fforts of some missionaries. You
caused tho Stuarts to perish and the
Itourlxms must disappear forever. This
is your future, your destiny ?
For a long time they humbled them
selves before tia.iklrg their appearance
in public, and now they have invaded
the soil of our country. We are the
tyrants of forty thousand priests, your
friends say with prulo. Franco pos
Messes today W0 Jesuits.
Are wo not threatened by the pres
ence of the Jesuits? Who has not ad
vised us of their existence? Anti
revolutionary tendencies, ultramontane
system, an evil that is undetinable, and
over all tho divNion that is so powerful
of tho paternal household; tyrants of
40,000 priests tho Jesuits have disposed
of 40,000 pulpits, being its moral and
proxy of the souls of women, und whom
they possess, has said Mlcbelet, reckon
ing debit with the remainder. Proxies
also of the mothers to obtain their
children, for which they demand in
high voice the liberty of their teaching,
with tho objectof monopolizing to their
own profit, tho actual generation they
repel, for they are confident of forming
tho heart of the coming posterity;
illusory confidence; for on giving the
c-y of liberty, all tho world has divined
that slavery was the primordial objnet
of lU efforts and denying arbitrary
liberty because arbitrariness or actual
liberty was not desired.
But if the Jesuits are to be the direct
ori of learning, must wo despair of the
future generation which issuer from
their hands? No; because the Jesuits
educated Voltaire and Diderot their
greatest enemies; and further the dis
ciples of the Jesuits with their writings
precipitated the revolution of 1789. The
education by tho Jesuits created phil
osophers, casuists and certainly is it
shown atheists, over all!
Who can predict with certclnty what
shall bo the results of the education by
the Jesuits.? The hablt9 are relaxt in
the extreme; egotism and rivalry dry
up the hearts; what will the world be
If the perverse doctrines have access to
"Dcuth kills only the body, but they
kill the soul. What care? To tho
deadly murderers living on are to be
left our children; herd will bo lost our
children in the future. Jesuitism is
the soul of policy and of impeachment;
the most ugly habits of the ta tling
scholar, surrendering all society for the
college convent; what a deformed spec
tacle! A wholo people living as an
establishment of Jesuits, is to say, that
they have arrived at the lowest occupa
tion of denunciation; treason in the
s.imo home; then the wife is a spy upon
her husband, the brothers spy upon one
another, but without any bustle, we
porcelvo only a sad murmur, a confused
noise of people who confess strange
sins, which torment them mutually and
at which they blush in silence."
The Jesuits destroy the morals and
never reach to purify their habits,
carrying forward religious quarrels to
centuries without any object of lesson.
The Porabal may be reborn and a new
Clement VI. perhaps may not delay to
avenge tho universe.
To re-establish the Jesuits solidly, it
will be necessary to destroy man; the
Jesuits are Impossible in the mean
while when we can consult our soul and
our reason; in the meanwhile we notice
the palpitation of our heart.
The actual position of the French
clergy today is the object of many grave
fears. When the immortal declaration
of 1(382, the clergy having expelled the
Jesuits, they measured an abyss be
tween them and the others. Who is
blind to this abyss? The French clergy
remember the eloquent words of Boa
suet: "The shepherd will unite with
the wolf to guard the flock."
A similar alliance is more than a
scandal, it is a sacrilege. The French
clergy we do not douot very promptly
detest the Jesuits; they observe with
honor its moral and its history; expell
ing the sellers of the temple and march
ing at the head of progress, prove that
the gospel is not the precursor of the
sepulchre. Christianity must not be
only the religion of the dead; the gospel
is the charter of man and the proclama
tion of his liberty. Minister of God,
explain until the last, the gospel of
Christ. Eighteen centuries have we
hoped. The people, Christ anew has
been nailed to the cross; and for a long
time have we seen the blood flow from
his wounds; the generous blood which
baa flown for our redemption, running
yet all the days; but the proclamation
of the gofcK.l will cicatrize tho bloody
The French revolution has com-
menoed the work of equality and lib
erty. The apostles ot Christ must
explain to all the law of God! The
tablets of Mt. Sinai was the code of the
Hebrews; but we are not ambitious for
any other laws than those of the gospel.
But the souls of the goul that is in
the sepulchre and the church is the
door which covers its entrance; and we
trust that only the stone may be broken
and Ik! scattered in every part. The
moral of Christ is eighteen centuries
old and has lost nothing of lle!ij icnce
or force. Aire ady is the time that the
people, s-e in the gospel something else
than a theory of what is beyond the
tomb. I test is the only thing that can
le given to tne asues of the dead; but
to the living must be given liberty!
Tlio French clergy will know very
Boon where are their true friends. Bat
the priests of false Gods may incense to
emperors and preach Inequality and
slavery; but the priests of Christ will
Und the footsteps of their Master in tha
paths of love and liberty.
And now, young men, be cart-f jl that
ye do not have to repent of living
sepulchres when the catastrophe shall
be inevitable. Great things are for
you to do. Persist wherever is the
combat of the soul, tho danger of li'e
and the reward. Do not be lost, or
then yourselves will become the sepul
chre of the catacombs: "As I, know ye,
that God is not the God of the dead, he
is the God of the living."

J. Francis, ft. P. & T. A , Omaha,
The letter of Pope Leo XIII. to the
Catholic archbishops and bishops of the
United States is a remarkable docu
ment. Formerly he sats: "We di
rected encyclical letters to the bishops
of the Catholic world; but now we have
resolved to speak to you separately,
because we highly esteem, and love
exceedingly, the young and vigorous
American nation." Think of a suc
cessor of Gregory X. writing in this
spirit about a salf governing people.
It is common to say the Protestant
churches change much with the lapse
of years, but that Rome remains al
ways the same. This is a mistake.
The papal church changes as the
world around it changes. It is no more
stable than either human institutions.
He rejoices over the great Columbus
celebration in Chicago, and says:
"When America was yet a new-born
babe, utteriDg in its cradle its first
feeble cries, the church took it to her
bosom in motherly embrace." So she
did. An octopus could not have given
Columbus himself a more hearty em
brace. She gave the big babe to the
crown of Spain, and warned all nations
to keep hands off, and not meddle with
her present to Ferdinand and Isabella.
But Spain retains very little of tho vast
donation. And here is another evid
ence of a change. The popes are no
lontrer in the habit of giving continents
to kings. They do not even give away
crowns and kingdoms any more.
His eminence recalls with pleasure
the lact that the "American colonies,
with Catholic aid, achieved liberty and
independence," and refers to "ihe well
known friendship and familiar inter
course which subsisted I twee n" ' f" 4-11 ,4
"the great Washington and Bishop; KCIlt KCCCiptS
Carroll." 1 he encyclical is a curious:
sp-clmen of the worldy wisdom and
faculty of adaptation to charged condi
tions, characterizing the Roman see.
And we think the venerable cardinals
and Kssibly tbe "holy father" hlmsclr,
must have smiled at some pnssages in
it. A'nr York Clturrh Mn tiytr.
