Napoleon and the Clergy.

--The war between the Bishops and the French Government is now assuming such proportions that a "cataclysm"--to use M. de Gramont's expression to Cardinal Antonelli — must be near at hand. The Bishop of Poitiers, in a published pastoral letter, compares the Emperor to Pontius Pilate. This fact is announced by the Patrie, under the head of "Latest News," and attested, which " latest news" usually is not, by the signature of its leading writer, M. Pauline Limayrac. The Bishop also speaks of the Emperor in his letter as "this man."
