CARDINAL VAUGHAN ON PURCELL'S LIFE OF CARDINAL MANNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 28 March 1896
CARDINAL VAUGHAN ON PUR CELL'S LIFE OP CARDINAL MANNING. ? **. ? The February number of the Nineteenth Century contains an article by His Eminence Cardinal Vaughan with reference to the recently published ' Life of Cardinal Man ning.' Cardinal Vaughan writes: 'The publication of this life is almost a crime. It throws into the street a multitude of letters defamatory of persons living and dead, to the scandal, the grief, and indignation of countless friends and kinsfolk. They were never written for publication. They had not been preserved for publication. Many of these letters can never be read or valued aright unless circum stances at present unrecorded be duly set forth — such, for instance, as those relating to Monsignor George Talbot. Then who does not feel that it is something worse than an indiscretion to publish to the world letters on extremely delicate matters that pass between intimate friends, recording their impressions and desires, dashed off on the spur of the moment, i...

GOULBURN NEWS. ? ♦ ? (from our correspondent.) St. Pateiok'h Day was, as reported last weok, a very great success in G-oulburn, and, as a sequel, tho memboi'H of the H.A.C.B. Society attended their annual special breakfast after Holy Communion. Dr. Lanigan said tlio eight o'clock Mass in the Cathedral, at which tho members received the Holy Communion ; and, after Mass, they sat down, to tho number of forty-five, to a sumptuous breakfast— quite a luxury in Lent, when only one square meal a day is allowed. By special request, both Dr. Lanigan (the venerable Bishop) and his coadjutor (Dr. Gallagher) were present ; and, after the fast had been properly broken, speech-making was indulged in till about 11 a.m., when the assembly was dispersed, all being very pleased with the morning's work, Owing to tho illness of Father Fallon, of Tomora, one of tho local priests (Father O'Shea) has been rusticating for a few weeks at Tomora, whonoe ho returned on Monday last.

IRISH NEWS. A False Charge. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 28 March 1896
IRISH NEWS. (From Contemporaries.) A False Charge. Discussing- the present position of Gaelic literature, Mr. T. W. Rolleston reproached Mr. Standish O'Grady for not having paid the debt which his genius owed to his country by completing- the great legendary romance of '? Cuchullin,' and the great historical romance of ' Red Hugh,' of both of which he long ago published preliminary studies. It has now been ascertained that Mr. O'Grady, who gave so much devoted work to Irish literature when there were none to applaud or even to read him, had, in fact, accomplished the work which Mr. Rolleston urged upon him. The ' Cuchullin Saga' is finished, and some scenes from it are now appearing in the New Review prior to their appearance in book form. 'Red Hugh' is also done, and only waits a publisher . These works ought to prove the very flower of Mr. O'Grady's great achievements. The Manchester Guardian has also an A Forecast, interesting forecast of the Land Bill. It says:— 'The Irish Land ...

Branch luis not; received such local patronage as might bo expected, and hence it has been hampered in its en'orts find its sphero of action necessarily limited.

A collection in aid of the Society was jnado at all the Masses, and tho results were highly gratifying. The Rov. Father Briody was the cele...
INDIVIDUAL CHARACTER AS AN AGENCY IN LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 28 March 1896
INDIVIDUAL CHARACTER AS AN AGENCY IN LIFE. ? + ? (By A.E.W.) By character I do not mean what in ordinary conversation we understand by it when we say that a man of is a good or bad, a sour or genial character. By it is signified that energy and deter oiination which give to their possessor a distinguishing and individual quality. This inward energy results from the apprehension of principles fixed and permanent in the mind. For instance, if a public man be a person of firm purpose and earnestness, that is, of strong character, it is because lie is the advocate of a policy and of principles well impressed upon his mind. Such a man has too clear and vivid a grasp or nis principles to De laltering and careless in maintaining them j he is too con vinced of their importance to flinch from them, or to be shifty and double-minded on trying and critical occasions ; and hence he has a strong fibre of character. Character, then, as I have already implied, is formed by the system of ideas whic...
