" ltiilnd to tho supremo defireu of tho
upoitolic dignity, and filling, nltlmuyli
not without nny merit on our part, the

by ll cxccm or Ills charity has deigned to

the world i wo consider tlmt it belongs to
our pastoral solicitude In exert nil our ef
forts to prevent Clirlitulns from engaging

whoever they mny be.
" As won as tho light of the Gospel la
gan to spread, I ho unfortunate men who
M into the hard fa to of slavery during llio
numerous wars of tlmt criod, felt their
condition improved; for the apostles, In
spired by tho Spirit of (hx on Ihnnne
hand, taught slave to obey their wrllily
inlvr.nJew8 Christ llltmelf.nnd to bo
resigned from tho bottom of their heart to
tho will of God; but, on the other, they
commanded masters to behavo ucll in their
slaves, to grant them wlint nno just nml
e(nltat)le, and not to treat lliemwilli nnger,
knowing that the Lord nf bold U in hea
ven, and that with II itn there U uo diiliuc
tlon of persons.
"Tho 'nw ol tho Gnpcl Imving very
soon anlversally nnd fundamentally ordained
sincere charity towanls all. nml tho Lord
Jesus having declared that He would regard
os" done- or refused to Himelf nil tho nets
of bcnhice.ve and mercy done or refuted to '
tho poor nod little ones it naturally fol
lowed that Christians not only rcgnrded
their slaves as brethren, above all when
they were more Inclined to ghe liberty to
IhoM who rendered themselves worlhy of
It. This usually took pluco particularly
on the solemn feasts of Karier.us St. Greg
ory of Nyssa relates. Tlicro were ven
found some who, Inflamed with more ardent
charity, tmbratal ttavtry for l!tc redemption
of their brttlnen; nnd an apostollo man,
our predecessor, Popo Gregory I, of sacred
memory, attests that ho hud known a great
many who performed this work of mercy.
Wherefore tho darkness of I'ogan super
stition being entirely dissipated In the pro
gress of time, and tho maimers of the most
bitrUaroua nations being eoflened thanks
to tLo benefit of faith-working charity
thtng advanced so far, that for many cen
turies there have been do slaves among tho
greater part of Christian nations. Yet
(wo ny it with profound sorrow) men have
keen einco found, even among Christians,
wbo,batiiefcilly blinded by the desire of
sordid gat,tiave not hesitated to reduce to
into Uviy, in distant countries, Indians,
Xttgroee, sad other unfortunate raeee; or
to assist la this scandalous crime, by insti
tuting nnd organizing n traffic In these un
fortunate beings, who had been loaded with
clmlin by others. A great number of tho
Itoman l'onlin, our prethcessora of glori
ous memory, hnvo not forgotten to stlgmn
tir.e, throughout the extent of their juris
diction, tho conduct of these men ns Injuri
ous to their salvatlmi, and disgraceful to
tho Christian name for they clearly saw
that It wa9 one of tho causes which tended
most powerfully to make Infidel tintioui con
tinue In their hatred to the true religion.
"Tills was tho object of the npoatollcal
letters of Paul IN, of the 'JOIh or May,
ln.Ti.mldrcfFcd to the Cardinal Archbishop
of Tolrdo, under tho ring of tho Hibernian,
nnd other li-ttcrs, much more copious, of
Urban VIII, ol tho 2'.M of April, 10H0.
nddn-sscd to tho colltctor ul tho rights of
tho Apostolic Chnm'ucr In Portugal let
ter In which tho most revere ccnmircs nrc
cast upon llione who venture to reduce tho
InhnbllnntM of the lt:t or West Indies Into
slavery, buy, sell, give, or escbango them,
separate them from their wive and child

send them Into itrnni:u places, or deprlvo

them hi slavery ; or aid, counsel, succor or
favor llioc whit do there things under nny
color or pretense whatever J or preach or
teach tlmt this Is lawful, and, In fine, co
operate therewith In nny way whatever.
Ileneillct XVI has since confirmed nnd
renewed, these pontifical ordinances before
mentioned, by now npostnllcal letters to tho
lllrhopsof llrnzll and somo other countries,
dated tho 20th of December, 17-11, by
means nf which he calls forth tho rollctude
or the Illshnps fur tho same purpose. A
long time before, another of our more nn
clcnt predecessor, Pius II, whose pontifi
cate saw the empire of tho Portugese ex
tended In Guinea nnd t! country of the
black, mid r wed letters, dated the 7lh of
October, 11 8'.', to tho lllshnp of Ituvo,
who wns rendy to depart for tltaio coun
tries: in tlicro letters lie d:d not confine
himself to giving to this prelate the means
requisite for exercising tho sacred ministry
in those countries with the greatest fruit,
but Iks took nevusion very severely to
blame (lie conduct of ihoto who reduced
the neophyte into slavery; la fine, In our
day, Pius VII, unlimited by tho Mine
spirit of charity nnd religion ns hid preilc
ceuor. zealously InUr posed his good cflivc
with men of authority for tho entire aboli
tion of the slave-trade nmoog Christians.
"TIicto oril Inar.cs, and this solicitudo
or our prcdeccsiora hnvo availed not n lit
tle, with the nld of God, in defending the
Indinns mid other nations who have just
been mentioned, against tha barbarity of
conquest, nnd the cupidity or Christian
merchants; but tho Holy Sec Is far irons
being nblc to hoast of tho complcto suc
cess of its efforts nnd zeal, for, if tho slave
trade lias been partially abolished, It to still
carried on by n great many Cbrlstlaos.
Whercrorc, dealrlng to rcmovo such n
dirgraco from all Cnristlnn countries, after
having maturely considered the matter
with many of our venernblo brethren, tho
Cardinals of tho Ilo'y Itoman Church, as
sembled in Council, following the example
of oar predecessors, by virtue of the apos
tolic office, wo warn nnd admonish In the
Lord nil Christians, of whatever condition
they may bo, nnd enjoin npoii them that
for the faturo, no ono shall venture unjustly
to oppress tbo Indians, Negroes or other
men, whoever they may be; to strip them
or their property or reduce tiiem into serv

commit such excess::, or carry on that in
famous traffic, by which tho blacks, os if
they were not men, but mere Impure oo(
msls, reduced like 'them Into servitude,
without any distinction, contrary to the

"Wherefore, by vlrtuo of tho nposlollc

would carry the Hour from his store in Aus

marching to the tune ol Old John Drown.'
A procession wus lormed, ex'ortcd by n
band of music, nud proceeded to Clifton
down tho Austin Canyon, where the scene
described below was cuaetcd:
"A stand was erected, upon which the
now distinguished suvk or Hour was placed.

A correspondent sends us the following
communication, which Is deserving or tha
serious attention of all adventurers. It
comes from a gentleman who understands
the autject thoroughly:
It seems that a kind or contagions
mania to hunt silver ore Is raging in wious
parts of the country, and it may be ben
eficial to some of the lafected to know how
to find out, by a ry simple process, whether
any of tlie much coveted metal exists lit
nny given rock or not. Here Is tho best
method: Let the prospector take o phial of
nltrlo acid along, work a small plceo of
tha ore to powder; roast or burn It out at
low heat, to expel any volatllo matter,
such as sulpher, nrsenlc, etc.: boil a ploch
of roasted powder for a few minutes in
about hair a wineglass ol tho acid (any
piece or crockery that is able to stand a
moderate heat will do for this purpose); let
the solution settle nnd cool ; pounit off into
a tumbler or wineglass ; odd some clear
water to it (rain water is preferable); dis
solve somo common salt in water in another
vessel, and ,pour a little of the brlce Into
the former -solution ; now observe vhether
there be any change or color in the samo ;
,lf you see a whito cloud forming tho
thicker the better you may presume that
tha rock contains silver, and you may send
the specimen toKun iFrsncisco for u regu
lar quantitative assay, because, though It
most likely wlll.conUin silver, It is a ques
tion whether it will be cuough to pay. If
tbo liquid remains clear, or does not show
plainly lite characteristic milky cloud,
throw -the stone away, however bright or
vgliltering, unless, or course, it should bo
quartz, and you can see some specks or soft
yellow metal in it. Hundreds of unfortu
nase wlld-goosu chasers would have saved
themselvce a great deal or trouble npd bard
work, besides all the subsequent disappoint
ment, not to mention excuses, if they had
known and applied the above simple test
for silver.
