The Pope has nominated Dr. Vaughan, the Bishop of Sal-

ford, to the Archbishopric of Westminster ; and though the Bishop is very anxious to stay in his present See, it is thought that he will be induced to acquiesce in the Pope's wishes. Dr. Vaughan is a Conservative, and though he followed Arch- bishop Manning in what was called his Ultramontane bias, he never followed him in his Irish policy and his ultra-democratic attitude on all social questions. To the English Catholics in general, the appointment of Dr. Vaughan would be highly acceptable.
