The Pope and British Protestants.

Cardinal Lavigerie, presiding over a charity meeting in Algiers Cathedral recently, warmly acknowledged the liberality of English winter residents towards the poor of all nationalities and creeds. He urged that, in view of the increasing attacks of atheism, Christians should renounce sectarian animosities, and he referred, as an earnest of the era of fraternity, to the London meeting of Catholic and Protestant prelates and laymen against the slave trade. The Cardinal mentioned that on his once expressing to Leo XIII. his esteem for the English, the Pope said: "So you like the English?" "Yes," replied the Cardinal, " I like the English Christians, Holy Father, on account of their innate virtues, of the nobleness of their lives, and of their having retained much more of the Roman Church than other Protestants, but especially on account of their sincerity, which allow us to hope as to many of them that if we are externally separated we are internally united in the soul of the same church. How desirable it would be to see these hopes realised?" "I desire it as much as you," rejoined Bis Holiness. "Repeat it to your English friends when you have an opportunity." "This," added the Cardinal, addressing the English present in Algiers Cathedral, "is what I am now doing, and>, though you are cornjparatively few here, you will make it known at) e, distance."
