THE GOOD SAMARITAN NUN. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 23 November 1895
THE GOOD SAMARITAN NUN. TJie following verses have been sent us with a request for their insertion. Australia's holy daughters join To form a noble band, With threefold deeds of charity To bless this Southern Land. With souls expansive like their home, Broad, manifold their aim ; The sick to nurse, the youn^ to teach, The erring to reclaim. In mercy's noble souled array, We see her lead the Van ; The first to help, the last to stay, The good Samaritan. She leads to God's safe fold once more Poor Sheep astray in Sin ; And, Christ-like, sighs from day to day More erring ones to win. Herself, as pure as crystal snow That falls from Heaven above, She looks upon the magdalen Not with contempt, but love. The smoking flax she quencheth not, The bruised reed neither breaks ; But the lowly, hopeless penitent, Unto her bosom takes. A noble work, the fallen one From evil ways to win ; But nobler still, to keep the Soul Forever free from sin. Behold her next, from day to day, Christ's little on...
OUR NEW GOVERNOR Arrival in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 23 November 1895
OUR NEW GOVERNOR. Arrival in Sydney. On Thursday afternoon the new Governor of New South Wales, Lord Hampden, arrived in Sydney, and was accorded a right loyal recep tion. Arrangements for decorating the streets and the entrance to Government House were completed early in the week, and by Thursday morning the streets along which His Excellency was to pass were gaily decorated. The stone pillars and the gates at Government House were completely hidden by palms, flowers, ever greens, and bunting. Venetian masts hod also been erected, the upper portions decorated with yellow and white ribbons, and the lower with cardinal and dark blue, the latter being His Excellency's colours. The facade of the Colonial Secretary's Office and of the Treasury were adorned with wreaths and multi-coloured flags.

OUR LADY OF MT. CARMEL, WATERLOO. ? ^ ? On last Sunday afternoon a meeting was held in the schoolroom to further consider a pro posal made at a previous meeting of the parishioners, to hold a garden fete with a view to helping the parochial debt fund. The Eev. J. Collins, who presided, was supported by Eev. P. Briody and Mr. M. J. Madden, who kindly took the responsibility or secretary to the meeting. After a full discussion of the various points of importance, it was finally decided to hold a select garden party at Sir Joseph Banks' Grounds, Botany, on Saturday afternoon, December 7. The price of admission is generally the difficulty in all such popular entertaiments, but it was happily settled by an almost unanimous vote, in this instance, that the price be 5s. and 3s. for double and single tickets respectively. Several donations towards expenses were received or promised at the meeting, and Mesdames JSTavin and Pugsley were appointed joint hon. treasurers, and Mes dames Dacey and...

Mrs. John Meagher. On last Tuesday, in the Cathedral, Bathurst, there was an Office and Requiem Mass for the late Mrs. Meagher, wife of John Meagher, Esq., J.P., Bathurst.

A Talented Australian. At the examinations recently held in Sydney, in instrumental music, Miss May Mitchell, daughter of our popular and highly esteemed citizen, Mr. T.

We congratulate her on her success and wish that it may prove but the prelude .to still higher achievement in the wonder-land of harmony and magic combination of sweetest tones.

NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 23 November 1895
NOTES AND COMMENTS. ? ^. ? Lord Byron, in a fine fit of frenzy, apos trophising the sea, gave us the well-known line — Roll on, them deep and dark blue ocean — roll ! With the regularity of the waves of the ocean, and with, its never-ending continuity of duration, the series of Armenian horrors and Turkish crimes is weekly dashing against the confines of civilization, and excites no one to poetry or even to decent prose. The weekly budget of Turkish savagery and cold blooded cruelty affords light, interesting occupation to European officialdom, and gives a new air of solemnity and pomposity to the large army enlisted in the service of diplomacy. In this light, and viewing him as a public benefactor, the Turk ought to be supported and encouraged. His latest official pronouncement as regards the Govern ment of his wide dominions, and his millions of piteous slaves, is consoling and reassuring in the extreme. He will commence, he says, to carry out some delicate reforms as soon as perf...

Jamoa' Chambers, King street, a copy oF his ad.11riral.1iy got- up trontiso deal irig1 with tho character and treatment of. teeth. Some mombors of tho dental profession, wo fear, are apt to under-estimato tho value oF their patient's natural tooth, find-show a desire to put others — moro showy, porhaps, but less real — in thoir place. This is clearly not Mr. Harris' method, as in tho book in question ho carefully points out that m his practice lie never uselessly ox tracts a tooth or a stump if nature will permit of the saving of it. This is a great point, and one well worth tho attention of suffering readers. By moans of now methods, Mr. Harris is onablod to fix artistically-made tooth with out the employment of plates. Tho system, ho says, is perfectly free from dangers and discomforts, and is cleanliness itself. Mr. .Harris bestows considerable...
THE LATE M. PASTEUR. WHY INTERMENT IN THE PANTHEON WAS DECLINED. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 23 November 1895
THE LATE M. PASTEUR. WHY INTERMENT IN THE PAN THEON WAS DECLINED. The Times Paris correspondent writes :— 'Mdme. Pasteur — that is to say, the Pasteur family, for they have always been admirably united — refused to allow an interment in the Pantheon, where the Republic has created a Valhalla, and where Carnot already rests by the side of Victor Hugo. The family, how ever, had several reasons for objecting to the Pantheon. The one which has been assigned is among these, but is not the chief. M. Pasteur, it is true, had an actual love for his institute. He was a man of singular sim plicity and frugality. Material considera tions never entered his head. Merely by his theory of ferments, which lias enriched those brewers throughout the world who first adopted it and exported ' Pasteurised ' beer, M. Pasteur might have made a large fortune. He did not derive the slightest profit from it, and while those brewers who adopted it were distancing all their competitors, M. Pasteur was carrying...
THE PLENARY COUNCIL. CEREMONY AT ST. MART'S. A GORGEOUS PAGEANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 23 November 1895
THE PLENARY COUNCIL. CEREMONY AT ST. MARY'S. A GORGEOUS PAGEANT. Bexond doubt, one of the grandest sights ever witnessed in Sydney was the ceremony con nected with the first public session of the Plenary Synod, at St. Mary's Cathedral, on last Sunday morning. From early morning the church was thronged with people, and long before half-past 10, the hour of! commencing, every available spot in the large building was densely packed. An immense crowd filled College-street to witness the procession enter ing from the Presbytery grounds into the sacred edifice. The interior of the church was most beautifully decorated, flowers and plants in wondrous variety adding to the loveliness of the scene. At 10 o'clock all those entitledt o participate in the procession met in the presbytery, and half an hour later, as the Cathedral bells rang out, the procession started from the verandah and passed out into College-street, and through the main door of the Cathedral. It was, in deed a grand spectac...
CONFUSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 23 November 1895
CONFUSION. It would be impossible to discover the opinion of an}'- single public man in New South Wales on the Assessment Bill. We except, of course, Mr. John M'Eliione, who is opposed to the Land Tax of any kind, with or without exemptions in any shape or form. All the rest, within or without the Council or the Assembly, present a medley of contra diction and of inextricable confusion. None of them for two weeks seems to defend his action on the same line of argument. The strongest members of the Council, during the last election, and after it, denounced, in the most vigorous terms, a Land Tax under any conditions. It was iniquitous, unjust, socialistic ; would be ruinous to the best in terests of the country ; would cost more in collection than it could possibly return to the Treasury; would hinder settlement on the land, etc. Seeing the force of some of these objections, Mr. Risid determined to cling to the exemption clauses in the Bill, and so to cut the ground from under the fe...

COMMERCIAL. CANADIAN WHEAT FOR SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 23 November 1895
COMMERCIAL ? ._^ CANADIAN WHEAT FOR SYDNEY. The steamer Kalnchili is expected to leave San Erancisco for Sydney in the course of a few days with a shipment of Calif ornian wheat. The agents, Messrs. J. J. Falk and Co., have also been advised that the German four-masted barque OhrUtine will sail i'roin 'Frisco either at the end of November or early in December for this port with a cargo of 3000 tons of wheat. Wednesday Evening. No marked improvement can be recorded in the import market for the week. Prices have not altered, and demands have been of a limited character. At yesterday's tea sale half the catalogues were cleared at not very encourag ing prices. The demand for flour has been fair at current quotations. Good business has been done in dried fruits. Salmon is in brisk de mand, and inquiries have been made for red Alaska. For the coming season 60,000 cases of salmon have been purchased. In the bread stuffs' market nothing fresh has transpired. Large shipments from the other c...
