" At an adjourned meeting, Mr. Stokes, lrom the " Committee appointed at a previous meeting, reported an address which wus read, and on motion of ? M r 1 .oiviu U vttn ummiiiiIpiI Itu Mr I'.iipIh it Wmh * - unanimously j' Resolved, That the address ho approved, adopted, and . j published. ? r Address of the Catholic Laity of Phllnilol- ^ I plUa. 0 Fellow Citizcns:?The calamities which have d : recently befallen us, ate already known to you all, o , through the public papers, which have also made e i yoit somewhat acquainted with their immediate oc- s [ casion. It was thought proper by the Honorable ij i Court of Quarter Sessions, to direct the attention of n | the Grand Jury ot May Term, to theBe events, uud V to request ot them a lull and accurate investigation a of their cause; in consequence of which, they ex- u ainined a number ot witnesses, and at length on the vi I I5ih inst., made a presentment, signed by seventeen a i of their number. We must confess our surprise at the avowal of li the Grand Jury, in the presentment; that they ne- ti oessarily depended on " Ex parte evidence" in the a investigation ot public facts regarding the commit- a nity at large, into which it was plainly their duty to c i inquire most fully, as they were instructed by the ri Court; and encouraged to do, with assurances of \ 1 protection to all witnesses whose attendance might tl be sought or otlered. p; We conceive that it was their duty to hear the tl evidence on both sides, m regard to all facts con- tl nected with the late iiots, and we regret that "ex a parte evidence" should have been received in a mat- v ter of public interest, where no bill of indictment v nor any particular charge had been laid before l< i hem. a They seem to have assumed that one party were s< rioters and the other the assailed, and to have con- d sequently, taken the evidence ot the latter, with- I out summoning the others before them to hear c their accounts of the transaction, and thus, we nre tl not surprised, at the result of their investigations Speaking of the causes which led to the riots, the p Grand Jury ascribe them? ?] [ " To the efforts of a portion of the community to ex- h J cludu the Bible irom our Public Schools. Tlio Jury are b of opinion that these efforts in some measure gave rise to n the formation of a new party, which called and held pub n lie meetings in the District of Kimniutrton. in the neucelul i exorcise of the sacred rights and privileges guaranteed to (j every citizen by the Constitution and laws of our State and Country. These meetings were rudely disturbed and fued upon by a band of lawless, irresponsible men, some f whom had resided in our country only lor a short u period. This outruge, caused the death of a number ol 1 our unoffending citizens, led to immediate retaliation, and " ; was followed up by subsequent acts of aggression in e p violation and open defiance ol all law." j1 [ We regret that the Grand Jury had not the moral t] ] courage to utter, in distinct terms, what they are p i now avowed and admitted to have meant. They r ! have, in the paragraph just quoted, without using f the name Catholic, wanfonly charged that denonu- r , nation with " an attempt to exclude the Bible from li " the public schools," and they have also, though '' more guardedly, insinuated that they " have at- 1 tempted to interfere with the sacred rights and , 9 privileges guaranteed to every citizen, by the Con- i } stitution and Laws of our State." Thae charge* u i are unfounded. If the Grand Jury, on what is e . avowed to have been " ex pirte teetimony," came * to these conclusions, it was their duty to have pre- 1 sented the names of those who constituted " the 8 portion of the community" with specific charges J against them, to the end that they might be tried f J and punished. If they did not come to these con- \ elusions, they have stated what they know to be both in the manner of its invest lent ions and ronrln- c sions, has given great reason for complaint, not r only to the 60,000 citizens whont they have con- 1 denined without a hearing, but to every man in the c a community who respects the laws and desires that J its administrators shall be both wise and pure. ' In the name and in behalf of the Catholic com- < munity, we explicitly deny that they have at any t lime, or in any manner made any eflort " to ex- r elude the Bible from the public schools." In the i - most solemn manner we declare that they have l J never designed, desired, or attempted to exclude 8 the Bible front the schools. We have untlorntly contended, not only for ourselves, but on behah ^ of our Protestant and Jewish brethren, for the c j fullest freedom of conscience both for children and d i adults in schools or elsewhere. t J We confidently refer to the letter of the Right v 1 Reverend, the Bishop of Philadelphia, to the Controlleis of the Public Schools, dated 11th Novent- ' ; ber, 1842, as evidence that the Catholic body, in * * whose name lie spoke, only asked the liberty ol t using the version of the Bible, approved of and r 1 authorized in their own communion. Speaking of the school regulations, he says? e "Amougthera (the regulations) I am informed one is, ,} that the teachers shall read, and cuuse to be read, the Bi- . ble ; by which it is undent lod the vetsiuu published by command of King James. To this regulation we are lorcid " to object, inasmuch as Catholic children are thus led to 1 i- view as authoritative a version which is rejected by the t Church. It is not expected that I should state in detail s the reason of this rejection. I shall only say, that we are ) , persu.ided that several books of Divine Scripture are want- \ t ed in that version, and the meaning of the original text . is not faithfully expressed. It is not incumbent on us to prove either position, since we do not ask you to adopt the Catholic version for general use ; but we feel war- v * ranted in claiming that our conscientious scruples to re- ? cognize or use the other, he respected In Baltimore, the Directors of the I'ublic Schools have thought it their duty to provide Catholic children with the Catholic version. Is it too much for ua to expect the same measure of jusI dee V j i From thia it is clear that no attempt was made by i the Catholic body, or their official and authorised r - representative, "to exclude the Bible irom the | Schools." The use, by themselves, of their own t > version was asked. In a neighboring city, where ? the Catholic faith prevails, and where peace and harmony on this subject have always existed, Cath'. olios use their own Bible, and Protestants theirs. In jj the Catholic city of Baltimore, both sides are pro6 tected, and neither side is oppressed. i The Board of Control, acceded to the Bishop's 5 request, but with a restriction which virtually nulli5 fied the concession, by adopting the following Kes solutions .5 " Resolved, That no children he required to attend or 5 unite in the reading ol the Bible in the Public Schools, 3 whose parents are conscientiously opposed thereto, i "Resolved, That those children whose parents consci* entiously prefer and desire any particular version of the ' Bilile, without note or comment, be t.irnished with the j same." Although the words, "without note or comment," excluded the Catholic version, which is always ac. companied by a few notes, the Bishop, or the Cai tholic community, made no complaint, being content that the children were exempted from the use of the version to which th#y were conscientiously ( opposed, and relying on the good faith of theDirec- p tors, and teachers, to execute the regulations ol the j Board No further action was had on this subject s on the part of Catholics, until the month of March of the present year, when a pamphlet porporting to , he a reply to the letter ol Bishop Kenrick was pub- [J [ lisbed by Kev. W. Colton, Chaplain in the United M ' States Navy, Kditor of a violent political newepa- () I per, and a leading member of " the Protestant As- fJ ! sociation." In the meantime it had been ascertain- j I ed that the regulations were not attended to in se- (j [ veral or most of the schools, and that theconscienI i><" fbilhnlie Ifarhfrn anil idiililrnn wiri>!icvripv. [ erf, in many instances, by attempts to lorce them ' i to use the 1'rotestant version. Under those circuin- , > stances, perceiving that an effort was made to set | at nought the regulations of the Hoard of Control, l and to force the consciences of Catholics, a num- ? > her of Catholic laymen addressed a respectful peti- V f tion to the Hoard of Control, praying for the en- ? [ forcement of their own regulations, and a similar I address was madtt by (he Bishop ; on which ocea- J ! sion the Hoard adopted resolutions, requiring their " j observance by the teachers under penalty of a forI feiture of salary. I-' At that very time, when we were respectfully pei titioning not to be excluded from the enjoyment of t our undoubted constitutional rights, the cry was 1 rtised that the Catholics were tailoring " to banish " I the Bible." This unfounded charge was met by a n, > prompt disclaimer published by the Bishop, in nil the city papers on the 13th day of March. From ^ 1 this document we beg leave to submit the followl ing extract. ' I "Catholics have not asked that thcBible be oxcluded from the Public School* They havo merely desired lor their children the liberty ol u?ing the Catholic version, in rase | i tlio reailing of the Bible be proscribed by the Controllem " or Directors of the Schools. They only desire to enjoy the " benefit of the (institution of the State of Pennsylvania, l> which guarantees the right of conscience, and precludes any preference of sectarian modes of worship They ask p W YO EW YORK, MONDAY i\I< i?t the School laws he faithfully executed, and that the ci religious predilections of the parents be respectc^." They p ik that the regulations of the Controllers of the Public chouls, adopted in December, lb34, be followed up, and lat the resolutions ot the same body, adopted in Jauuary, ' 343, he adhered to. They desire that the Public Schools J.1 a preserved from all sectarian influence, and that educa- " on he conducted in a way that may enable all citir.ens O ijually to share in its benefits, without any violence be w ur oflered to their religious convictions.'' C These were the only measures adopted by the n 'atholic community or by their official representa- si ,ve, in relercnce to the use of the Bible: and show ij tat they limited their request to the liberty of us- v sing their own version, and did not in any way d tterfere with the use of the Protestant version by ti itch as choose to adopt it. In this age and country, a nil especially .'in the ciiy to which William Penu ti ave tht name and impress of brotherly love, we b resume it is unnecessary to put forward any plea s< I support n! our constitutional ami It-gal right to ave our religious predilections respected. Free- li om of conscience is a fundamental article of the so- o ial compact which we are bound to maintain, and p re cannot consent to see it violated in ourselves, or p ur fellow-citizens. We appeal to all whether we p o not scrupulously respect it in all various relations c f life. In this regard at least, we feel no reproach t f conscience. We learlessly challenge any one to t how any act of the Catholic community in violaion of these sacred rights, and we can individually d lake a like appeal as to ull our social transactions. J Vt have cherished and loved our tellsw-citizens e s broth rs bound together by social lies, which lor v s, were strengthened and nallowed by a religion tl rhich preaches submission to constituted authority o nd love for all mankind. o \Ve have heard u affirmed that because Catho- a cs are a minority, they must submit to the regula- o uns which the majority may please to adopt We ji re. willing that the principle should be applied to d II things wherein public interest and order are a oncerued, saving always those principles and u ghts which the Constitution holds to be inviolable, o Ve are the minority ; and for us, therelore, does t re Constitution exist. The majority need not its c rotection, lor lliey have the power to take cure of v leir own interests. Unless for the shield which J to Constitution gives to those who are the smaller, r ud, therefore, the weaker party, this government o rould be a Despotism, for lite governing power C rouid be uncontrolled. To-day one class may be p ished by the tyrant of numbers, uud to-morrow u nother class may fee) the scourge. v ect, no party, would evtr be safe. Peace and or- c er would be destroyed, und soon the wreck of the r lepublic would add another to the many melunholy instances of the danger which always attends A lie conferring of Unbounded power. tl Under no circumstance is Conscience at the diu- ti oaal of a majority, it is the feeling of duty which I, prings Irom the law ot nature < ngraved on the p cart, or Irom the revealed law of God, and cannot li e subject to the control of any authority not im- I rediately derived from Him. We plead then our ti aturul and iudeleastble right, recognized by the a lonslitulion and laws, and we are happy to add by p lie Hoard of Control itself, in the regulations c domed in the year 1H33, long before the agitation t this question. We beg leave to bubuut them to s >ur fellow citizens. li " Whereas, The Controllers have noticed that the prac. u ice exists in some of the Schools ol introducing religious v xsreises, and hooks of a religious character, which nave f ot been recommended or adopted by this Hoard in the > issons prepared lor the use ot the scholars, and l elieving lie use ol such exercises or books may have a tendency ' 3 produce au influence in the Schools ol a sectarian cha- ' It id resolved, That this Board, at conservator* of the h ights oi Parents or Uuardians of children, committed to i lie core of Teachers, employed according to law, for the ? 'urpose of public education, arc bound to preserve those , ights unimpaired. . Resolved, That the Constitution of the State of Pennylvania, which has provided for the establishment of 'ublic Schools, has also wisely guaranteed the right ol c 11 to worship according to the dictates of their eonsci t ucn ; and a* the parents of children have, both by law ud nature the guardianship ot them during their minori- r y, so, they alone are responsible for the effect of such . ;uardianship; ami their right to impress the minds ol t heir children with such views of a religious nature as ( hey may think most important, ought not to bo inter ered with, especially by a body exercising its authority iy virtue ol the laws of the Commonwealth. Resolved, That as all sects contribute in the payment if any religious or sectarian forms as part of tho disci dine of the School, must have a tendency to impair the ) ights of som# ; and that whilst this Board is convinced it the utter impossibility of adopting a system of religious nstruction that should inert the approbation oi all religiius societies, they are equally satisfied no injury need renilt to the pupils from confining the instruction in our Schools to the ordinary branches ot elementary educuion ; inasmuch as ample iacilities for religious improvenent are presented for the choice of parents or guardians, n Habbath Schools, and other establishments for that pur >o?e, winch are organized and supported by various rcli- , ;ioti? communities. Resolved, That ground of universal benevolence s one on which all sects or patties may meet; and it must ie on this ground alone, that our Public Schools can be ontinued as a public good; and ill prohibiting the intra I action of religious forms in them, this Board will invade he rights of none, but on the contrary, by so doing, it sill maintain the rights of ail?and, therefore, Resolved, That this Board cannot hut consider the inroduction or use of any religious exercises, books or lesons into the Public Schools, which have not been adoptd by the Board, as contrary to law: and the use of any ucli religious exercises, books or lessons, is hereby diected to be discontinued." With regard to the connection of the question joncerning the use of the fhble, with the organist ion among us of a new political party, it is noi or us to question the correctness of the conditions at which the Grand Jury have arrived. For nirselves, we repeat, that we sought only liberty >f education as connected with liberty of con icience?the birthright of freemen. We sought t by respectful addresses to the legal authorities yVe asked that our children, in approaching the ountaios of public education should be permitted o drink of its waters without any admixture. We vished to leave them as their most precious inherittnce the faith which we receivd Irom our lathers, ir embraced from deep conviction of its truth; ind in committing them to the public teachers we datnied what God commands, what the law guarintees, that our parental rights to guard their relipous sentiments should not be infringed. If tins tas given rise to a new political party, we deeply egret that any party should exist in the country tostile to liberty of conscience. Hut we disclaim he intention ot throwing this Bligmu on any party We yield to none of our fellow-citizens in attacnnent to republican institutions: we owe no alle[iance whatever to foreign prince, or potentate; the , ibedtence which as children of the church we renter to the chief Ihshop, regards not the things that ipertain to this world. A8 Catholics, we are free in out political sentiJieots, uninfluenced by our religious tenets or by t nir spiritual snides. We belotitr to different noli- . ical parties, according to our judgment and choice, | ind we have political opinions and predilections >ver which we acknow ledge no control, other than \ he constitutional and legal restrictions We do ? lot object to the formation of any new party, which t espects the Constitution and laws, and pursues its ibjeetl without infringing on righis already gunriin ' eed, and puhhc faith anil the dictates of natural J Ltstice und humanity. Hut if any party takes its iae in opposition to the peaceable effort of citizens o protect nnd preserve the rights of conscience, in t he growing youth of our country, it is of ill omen r a our peace and prosperity.

Since his name and proceedings here havr been so furiously chronicled of late, a little detail, I think, will not he uninteresting. Lord George I'aulet is not that lawless chap his friends would gladly have the world believe, but, on the contrary, a red-haired, fat, sleek, innocent being, who would not injure one of the numberless little verinine that inlest this region, livery man in a conspicuous station has his friends and enemies, and Paulet, peculiarly so. While you suppose every one liete, to a man, would eat him unfeatheied, I can safely say, tiinety-nme out of a hundred, natives and foreigners together, would most gladly see him restored, clothed in the same power which fie assumed. This would lie heard with astonishment by a majority unacquainted with Hawaiian affairs, nevertheless it is true. And why astonishing 1 Because the interested Lunics here are powerful em-ugli to make themselves heard, while the voict of the feeble is too easily Inst in the roar of the vusi ocean around them. 1 heir reasons are peculiarly their own. Let us come a little nearer in detail The hihimis rtftfive?Usirk-wnuheri iiHvnrufi H nf flu government, grounded their objections to hoistiiif the English llag here,on the pretence of its being u violation of all international compact. On the con trary, Paulet, according to British principles, and with generous magnanimity, planted his alandarc as a van-guard to this fet file nation, to intercept and brunt the French, whose proceedings at tin Southern Islands, connected with their conduct at this place heretofore, evinced anything but nil angel visit. Thus far, with true Brinish policy, and no further, would ull have been well enough, lint now conies ihe tug?not of war?the commission for thc Snndwich Islands Government.

With the exception that the mineral water here has somewhat loi-t itu pungent 1 taste, 1 cannot see hut that the thins Souci affords | as pleasant and us agreeable a retreat lor the idler . as heretofore. It is now more quiet than foimerly, having fewer visitants, and lor this reason is a mote fitting retreat for the invalid, und those who desire repose, than lor the fashionable searcher after pleasure. A more healthy and salubrious air ihsn is found here, exists, 1 venture to assert, iit no > other inland village in the .^late, and to those nbu ' prefer quiet and rebt, to noise and activity?health , and comfort, to pleasure und excitement?I would recommend this village in preference to Saratoga. And should they he believers in the "cold water cure," here they "can bathe their weary souls," if not "in seas of heavenly rest," at any rate, in comfortable baths, and can luxuriate on the waters Ire.-Ji and sparkling from the fountains, or il they prefer, can obtain at the Sunt &ov<i tlie Saratoga water as fresh as from the Springs. Those who in former years were in the habit of visiting this place, would be richly repaid by again nuiking a summer excursion here, in viewing the great improvements that have been made within the past lew years. The village lias wiilnii the past five years nearly doubled in population and in buildings; the immense water power that lias been for so many years allowed to run to waste, is now being brought into active use, and that loo under ihe operation of our present Protective Tariff, which it is to he hoped may long remain upon our statute hooks, to act as an incentive to American enterprise.
