A grand fête in St. Peter's. The Pope was borne into the church on the shoulders of men, seated in his chair of state, making continually, as he passed along, the sign of the cross in the air with the two fore-fingers of his right hand.

 The vespers, of which music forms the principal part, are more attractive; though one cannot listen to the chants of these " warbling wethers," without feelings of indignation at the system which sanctions such a school of music; but perhaps a government of celibacy may affect to believe the deprivation of virility a loss of small importance.
