DEATH OF AN AMERICAN BISHOP. The death of the græti CathoKc Prelate of America has caused general regret, and interesting accounts of the service to his memory are given in the papers. The Xen- York Tribune, in reference to the subject says :— The funeral of Archbishop Spalding in Baltimore, was one of the most impressive ecclestical spectacles ever seen in this country. Not only in lafeterial accessories, but in its moral surroundings, the ceremony VI 00 worthy of a Prince of the Church. Thirten Bishops, representing sees ranging from Boston to Savannah, came to do honour to the dead prelate. A great number of priests and students and holy men accompanied the funeral cortege with more marks of sorrow than are usual on these occa- sions of official mourning. The souls oj the immense audience, already touched and saddened by their Joss. were still further melted and subdued by the thrilling tones of elaborate music. The Right Re., Archbishop M'Closky of New York preached the funeral ser- mon tram the text, "I will very gladly Sf-3TJ.,l and be spent for yon." The burden of the Archbishop's dis- course was the 'T the executive ability, the official capacity ot Zsd late chief priest of Baltimore. But the tears and the sohe of the bystanders, the silent- sorrow of the masses who filled the streets, was the best eulogy on the Christian virtuefi of Archbishop Spalding. The Honourable poverty in which he lived and died was the best proof of the self-denying energy with which he devot-ed everything beyond a bare subsistence to the sacred cause of thóse poorer than himself. The Church, with its traditional knowledge of character, recognised this trait of the departed, and has carved it on the tablet which marks his last repose: Maxima piddle ef doctrina vecnon pauper- fate Archirpiscopalem Cathedral exorvavit.' The piety and learning would not have availed for the saintship if they had not been reinforced by poverty." —!
