Contradictory statements about the health of the Pope

--A statement has been published giving an alarming account of the health of the Pope, saying that he is afflicted with a disease which would carry him off in three months. On the other hand, a correspondent of the London Catholic Register, writing from Rome, says:

‘ "Here in Rome we are in perfect quiet. The Pope is extremely well; and if it is true, as some say, not without some foundation, that Napoleon and Ricasoli have taken the determination to defer the solution of the Roman question till the death of the Pope, I can say they will have a long time to wait, in spite of the reports of evil portent of the press, which never ceases to spread the worst news with regard to the Pope's health."
