SEIZURE OF ROMAN CONVERTS.
Driving the Nuns Into the Streets.
The Roman correspondent of the New
York Herald, writing tinder the date of
October 30th, gives the following account
of the expulsion of the nuns from their
convents in the Eternal City :
“There is a general law of the kingdom
suppressing all religious orders. This law
so far has remained a dead letter in Rome,
where convents, religious institutions and
orders pullulate only through the defer
ence which Minister Lanzal wishes to
show for the Holy Father and the Holy
See. There have been exceptions to this
general indulgence. The authorities ap
propriated the Quirinal I’alace and all
the other buildings which were absolute
ly needed to run the machine here, and
to the great disgust of the monks and
nuns, although they were indemnified by
certain moneys to be drawn and paid out
of the national treasury. The fraterni
ties looked upon Italy as a bad payer
and protested ; but nevertheless, the
strong arm of power turned them out of
their property, and they were forced to
make the best of their surroundings. Day
before yesterday expropriation fell upon
the two convents already mentioned;
their buildings were wanted for military
purposes, and so the public force went to
take possession of them. As early as
half past six in the morning the slum
bers of the nuns were disturbed at th®
Convent of Santa Teresa by loud knocks
at its door, and upon its owning by the
pastor of the establishment the Govern
ment Commissioners, and a notary, were
ushered in. In these operations the Gov
ernment sends a notary, on tho idea that
the thing must be done in accordance
with the forms of law, although it strong
ly smacks of a piece of irony to the par
ties thus ousted, who declare that confis
cation law is no law, but more might.
The invaders of other people’s houses be
ing introduced in the parlor, a priest asks
their business and informs them that he
has been charged with the direction and
the keeping of the convent by no less
personage than His. Holiness himself
by positive and direct ordere from the
Vatican. Those orders are for the occu
pants to be put out of doors only by force,
and not to consent to any mere calm
walking away. In this we have an ink
ling of that strong, uncompromising will
which animated the old temporal sway
over tho city and which animates still
the spiritual sway over the faithful.
Three nuns completely vailed, are visible.
The first solemnly and impressively en
joins upon them to retire to their private
rooms, where the balance of the sisters
are, and this they immediately proceed to
do, after piously kissing the hand of the
Pope’s agent. They are to go and wait to
be shoved out of the house ; nor do they
have to wait long, for the mere inspec
tion of the apartments by the royal cara
bineers effectually drivés the pious ladles
into banishment into the outer world 'of
the streets, the priests following at their
heels. The notary, by order, makes a
process-verbal of the operation, and lo !
Victor Emanuel has another convent, but
without any nuns. No one can tell whet®
they went, or who took them in, weary
and abandoned ; but it is generally be
lieved that they scattered and took refuge
in other convents which have not yet
been ‘expropriated.’ • A similar operftUfrn
was gone through with at the monastery
of St. Antonio Abate.”
A N ew U se of L eaves .—A Vermon
ter hgs recently tanned several sides 6f
leather with lye leached from forest
leaves. He has been experimenting with
leaves for two months, with satisfactory
results. One ton of leaves, it is asserted,
will tan as much leather as five cords of
bark, and will complete the process in
half the time. When leaves and bark
are mixed in equal proport ions, one- fourth
the time is sawd. The leather tanned
by this process, it is claimed, is more
flexible and smoother than that tanned
by bark, while the strength of tho raw
hide is retained in a greater degree.
W orth K nowing .—The following, to
prevent pitting from small-pox, may be
of value to our citizens in future: An
ointment made of charcoal and lard, ap
plied freely over the face, neck and hands,
is said to prevent pitting in small-pox ;
it should be used immediately upon th®
commencement of the disease, and con
tinued until the fever has entirely ceased.
This application not only allays the Itch
ing, but It appears to shorten tho dura
tion of the disease, while it leaves the
patient entirely free from all blemishes ;
the charcoal prevents the action of light,
and the lard that of air.
T he remarkable growth of the petrole
um trade is illustrated in the fact that
while in 1860 a market could not be found
for ten million gallons, in 1871 the de
mand for export alone is inadequately
supplied by 141,000,000 gallons. In th®
Pennsylvania oil regions, a territory ex
tending some seventy miles in length by
about thirty in breadth, more than five
thousand wells are in operation, Yielding
a product of about seventeen thousand
barrels per day.
F or a big business on a small capital
Chicago insurance companies beat tho
world. The Equitable, with assets of
$230,000, had risks amounting to $7,000,-
000. The Golden City, with capital stock
paid up of $50,000, had risks of $5,000,000,
and lost $2,000,(MM). The Commercial,
with assets ot $5,000,000, had $15,000,000
in outstanding risks.
T he reason why no divorce suits In
Wyoming have grown out of enfranchise
ment of women is the fact that the men
have become so cowed that not one of
them dare institute proceedings. They
suffer in silence.
