The  day  is    memorable  chiefly  for  the massacre of the Hugenots throughout  Franco  on  that day   in  1572.  The massacre practically decided tho  fate   of  tlie  French religious reformers, who left their country shortly at*  tor in, thousands, to the    permanent  improvement-of France, and tho ad-  yantage   of -England,    Ireland    and  Holland, were;many of them settled.  Tho luassacre was the outcome-,of iv  long struggle between factions led by  the   Condes   and tho   Guises, leaders  respectively    oi  the  reforming      and  Romanist  political  parties.      It was  however,  a  political  movement,  not  discouraged   by the    Icing but disapproved on all grounds by the   church.  It served to embitter    all the semi-  rcligious wars of the time,  the chief  pf .which   were    the attempt of    tho  ���������Armada on England,     and the campaigns  of Alva-in tho Netherlands.   ������   COUNTERFEITER  ARRfESTED.
