I GERMANY AND THE VATICAN. A Beater's telegram from Berlin states that the Lower Iloiijo of the Prussian Diet have discussed the estimates of the Mini, try of Public Worship. Herren Von Schor- lemer, Alst, and Windthorst claimed for the Catholics the full restoration of the status qu» mnle. Herr Windthorst stated that the Government was to blame for the conflict with the Vatican, as they had not been in earnest in I their negotiations for an arrangement of the difficulties. He demanded th it the scho >JS should be placed under the control of the Chirrch, and concluded by declaring that I the Government did not desire peace with the Vatican, although the I'mperor was in favour of it himself. Herr Schorlemer, who was freouentlv interrupted bv cheers from the Centre, aftirmed that the State would be forced | to make peace with the Curia in erder to put an end to J the expatriation of Catholic communities, which had pro- 5 motel demoralisation and prepared the way for the triumph of the Socialists. The Minister of Public Worship, in reply, deprecated the attempt which had been made to introduce into the debate a reference to an alleged difference between tb,4 pmperor and the Ministry on the question, ire would place no difficulty in the ¡ wav of religions schools, but only desired to prevent a ceTtam Special influence being exercised over scholastic establishments. He would not answer Herr Wind- thorst's question as to whether the negotiations with the Curia had been been broittn off or still continued in tfie manner whieh the former SSsuOied. In the course of his speech the Minister mad^ an announcement to the effect that the Government had almost entirely removed the sequestration of the incomes of the clergy, and had pardoned one bishop- ninielv, Mgr. Melehers. This statement.caused general surprise in the House, The Minister's speech was frequently interrupted by derisive cries from the Centre. The Germania publishes intelligence from Koine to the effect that Cardinal Jacobiui's last note points out that there is only one alternative—either Prussia must consent to a thorough revision of the Mar laws, or she will deprive the CiUhol'c Church in Germany of the very conditions of its existence.
