The treasurer of the United sw 11 have to pay tho bills willingly if VT or by mandamus if he is refractory. 1 v is once passed, tho money will have T trized the present election higher than either if the previous ones, because it was an evi- tence that the democrats of Alabama is course as a senator from this state. He re- -udiated the idea that his election on thia oc- ;asion was an anti-alliance victory. Hedidno; claim.It a victory over any particular JDOU. or irganization.

At all events, this is a matter that in the cir- arabtances of time must now be decided one way r the other before many days, THE CATHOLIC HIERARCHY'S VIEWS.

Tho manifesto proclaims 1'a.r- aeil'B intention to promote complete separation as fully did his famous speech in America, and has rendered the prospects for homo rule worse than they have been ut any time since 1SS3. The Daily Xews says: Mr. Parnell so completely ignores the points jsauo that it IB diflicuit to understand the nieamnjr of lilH manifesto. It would boa powerful appeal if it dicl noc rest on an entire misconception, we hesitate to say complete misrepresentation, of the whole ciromiiBtanccs of the rase.

It -wiH be killed by the manifesto, but the English people having seen what manner of men the FarnelliteF are will never trnst them with the government of Ireland. Tho manifesto clearly fcbows Mr. Parnell is not a person with whom any Btatesman can venture to hold confidential relations. Insh m- eratitode In politicb is proverbial, but never be- fore was it avowed with such colti and calculating cynicism. on. the letter of Archbishop Walsh, The Chronicle says: Tliis is not the nrst time that dignitaries ot this church have condoned the Droihjracy in. men of political power. M e believe that there is atill much of -Mr. Parnell's intriffue. We also believe tliat if all were known tbe result would to leave air. Paraell's character blac fcer than ever.
