THE VATICAN FRUSTRATED.—The London correspondent of the Manchester Guardian writes: The leaders of the Protestant organisations in London are in high glee at the supposed abandonment of the Vatican plan for establishing a Catholic hierarchy in Scotland. The Scotch law against the Pope's juris- diction is very severe, and a high legal authority has declared that anyone assuming ecclesiastical territorial titles will render himself liable to heavy penalties. I have reason for stating that the introduction of the Catholic hierarchy would have led to a series of pro- secutions in the Court of Session, and the small band of gentlemen who had determined to vindicate the Protestantism of Scotland," are not a little elated with the supposition that a knowledge of their inten- tion has delayed, if it has not entirely prevented, Che intended action of the Vatican.

He thought the practice of auricular confession was highly objectionable, and caleullo,ted to create prejudices and to promote differ- ences and dissensions amongst Churchmen, which would not only tend to diminish the influence, but seriously to imp'ril the safety, of the Church.
