-Elihu Burritt, in a letter,thu speaks in relation to the reformutory tendencies of the r.ow Pope : "One fact in illustration of his proscriptive government. It is reported thit he has caused a box to he put in a public place for the reception of letters, into which every person who can write may drop any communication, suggesting mprovements, or complaining of abuse, directed to his Moliness personally, who promises to keep tliekey in hisown pocket, and permit no supervisión of othersto interfere between his ears and the wants of the people. I trust that this will be a kind of St. Peter's key, or at least a key offreedum and knowledge to them. If the Pope keeps his letter box open fur n year to conv, I shnll try todrop a lne. ortwointo itabout penny postage, unréstricted commerce, peace and universal brotherhood."
