The Carver’s Lesson. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 3 May 1873

The Carver’s Lesson. BY ADELAIDE PROCTER. the pi lot. Boston, May 3, 1873. Trust me, no mere skill of subtle tracery, No mere practice of a dexterous baud, Will sullice, without a bidden spirit. That we may, or may not, understand. And those quaint old fragments that are left us Have their power in this,—the Carver brought Earnest care, and reverent patience, only Worthily to clothe some noble thought. Shut then in the petals of the flowers, Hound the stems of all the lilies twine, Hide heneatli each bird’s or angel’s pinion, Some wise meaning or some thought divine. Place in stony hands that pray forever Ten der words of peace, and strive to wind Round the leafy scrolls and fretted niches Some true, loving message to your kind. Some will praise, some blame, and. soon forgetting, Come and go, nor even pause to gaze; Only now and then a passing stranger Just may loiter with a word of praise. Rut I think, when years have floated onward, And the stone is gray, and dim, and old, And the...

Roman Chronicles. yrom Our Special Roman Correspondent. Rome, March 25, 1873. Dr, Vauglinn’s Sermon. On Sunday, the 23d, the lit. Rev. Herbert Vaughan, Bishop of Salford, delivered, in the Cburcli of St. Isidore, in presence of a large number of English and Americans, liis sermon in aid of Foreign Missions. If is eloquent and forcible appeal to the charity of his hearers, in favor of the negro, was generously responded to. His zeal in the cause for which he is spending his life is well-known In America, and it is still more admirable when being called to anew sphere and to the fulfilment of new duties, he continues still to prosecute the great thought of his life. He leaves Rome to-day in company with Bishop Dane]], of Southwark. Tbc I*l lot ltlexsed by The Pope.

CATHOLIC UNION. Forming the Organization in Boston. SYMPATHY WITH THE POPE. Expression of Catholic Opinion. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 3 May 1873

CATHOLIC UNION. Forming the Organization in Boston. SYMPATHY WITH THE POPE. Expression of Catholic Opinion. The Catholics of Boston have followed in the course already taken by their brethren in other cities of the Union and in Europe. A CatholicUniou has been formed in ‘‘ the Athens of America,” for the purpose of showing sympathy with the Holy Father in his afflictions, and expressing the fealty of Boston Catholics to the See of Peter. May God speed and direct the young organization, and may its beneficial results be gratefully acknowledged by this and future generations of American Catholics. Though this is the first announcement of its formation, the Catholic Union of Boston has been virtually established since the 3d of March. On that evening a meeting was called by circular, sent to thirty-three Catholic gentlemen. Although this number excluded many prominent and respected Catholics, it was deemed advisable to commence the organization with a limited number, which can now be i...

Educated Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 3 May 1873

Educated Crime. A singular illustration of the amount of organization, ! education, and capital which nowadays can bo enlisted in the service of profitable crime is given by the recent forgery frauds on the Bank of England. The Bank of England takes the utmost precautions against fraud, requiring an introduction from one of the directors before it will open a “discount account” eveu with a depositor. But there is a branch bank in Burlington Gardens, in the West End of London, for small local business, in which the regulations are not so strict, and to this bank the forgers went. One of the gang opened with the branch bank an ordinary deposit account, depositing a sufficient cash balance to make the thing look natural. Then for months he drew checks and made deposits, like any other customer of the bank, always keeping his*balance at a good figure. After a time lie deposited some bills. The bills were perfectly good. Still he moved with great caution, and continued his trans- j actio...

Our Halifax Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 3 May 1873

Our Halifax Letter. Halifax, X. S., April 14, 1873. Hie Atlantic Disaster. The community has not yet recovered from the terrible shock it received on the afternoon of the Ist inst. Nothing has been spoken of or written about during the last ten or twehc days, but the scenes of that dreadful calamity, the recollection of which will never be effaced from the memory of those who were living witnesses of the sad catastrophe - If ever a captain and officers of a ship should be held to a strict account for the loss of so many precious lives, they are Captain Williams and his officers. The more the subject is ventilated, the more the inquiry is prosecuted, the tinner becomes the conviction that nothing but gioss carelessness lost so line a vessel, and found a watery grave for so many souls on that fatal April morn. Decitmg tile liosary lit the Digging. Incidents without number have been related of the wreck and the manner of rescue; but the following which was told me by a passenger has no...

American Humor. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 3 May 1873

American Humor. I American humor, we are inclined to believe, is the most genuine in the world. Its chief characteristic is, undoubtedly, tremendous power in exaggeration, accompanied by a sort of innocent air of truth. As an instance of this exaggeration nothing can be better than the war story, which tells how a showman, from his constant travelling about, had his name enrolled in thousands of places, and was actually drafted in so many hundred spots, that he formed himself into a brigade, held a brigade meeting, and elected himself brigadier general by acclamation. Take, too, the story of the steamer on the Mississippi, that sailed from Baton ltougc for New Orleans, a long way down the river, and went so slow that, after two days’ steaming, she found herself ten miles higher up the stream than when she started. This species of humor is not confined to the west. It was in New England that the fog was so thick that a man engaged in shingling a roof shingled a hundred yards right ou...

THE WICKED WOODS OF TOBEREEVIL; OR. The Ancestral Curse Removed. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 3 May 1873

THE WICKED WOODS OF TOBEREEVIL; OR. The Ancestral Curse Removed. BY MASS MULHOLLAND. AUTHOR OF “HESTER’S HISTORY." r*art ii. CHAPTER XVI. . A STRANGE NIGHT. When "Miss Martha saw the condition into which Paul had j strangely fallen, she agreed with -'I ty that it would be well j to remove him to new scenes, and leave his restoration to time and Providence. Her anger was at once lost and for- 1 gotten in her pity, and she began to pack her trunk in preparation for a journey which must begin before twenty-four hours should go past. There was no reason to fear that Paul would refuse to accompany her, and every cause for haste, for the mood of Ms mind had changed since his arrival at Monasterlea. He no longer lived in that quiescent condition, which was almost a state of unconsciousness. Things which he saw around him here seemed striving to arouse bis memory, and ;i struggle was beginning between the reason obscured within him, and that power by whose agency he was afflicted; the resul...

A City of the Dead. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 3 May 1873

A City of the Dead. We take the following graphic picture of the ruins of Pompeii from the correspondence of the London Telegraph:— Of all sights in the world, none can impress an intelligent or imaginative mind more powerfully than the spectacle of this strangely recovered dwelling-place of the past. One may have travelled far and wide, may have seen “ men and cities” in all parts of the Globe, and become familiar with nearly every famous river, may have perhaps fancied himself beyond any very strong sensation of fresh wonder; but Pompeii remains, for all who sec it for the first time, a unique and an overwhelming experience—a City of the Dead —a township thronged with ghosts, where silence is the natural language of the spot, and where “two thousand years ago” seem but yesterday. Moreover, this marvellous spot, this mummied town, which perished eighteen hundred years ago, and is yet in appearance the same, or nearly the same as when the volcanic rain hid it in fiery ceremen'is fro...

The Massacre of the Blacks. A Statement by Colored Men How the Difficulty Originated. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 3 May 1873

The Massacre of the Blacks. A Statement by Colored Men How the Difficulty Originated. The following statement of the difficulties at Colfax, in Grant parish, has been prepared by some of the negro party for publication In view of the misrepres stations made of the recent difficulties in the parish of Grant, and in justice to ourselves, we deem it proper to put the public in possession of the facts. Everything appeared quiet up to the evening of the Gist of March, when rumors reached us that a body of armed men intended, on the following day, to make an attack on Collax, take possession of the courthouse, with the public property therein, capture the officers appointed by Governor Kellogg, who were quietly exercising their duties, and put the appointees of McEnery in their stead, and'made threats of a more serious character against our representative, William Ward, and other prominent republicans. Our sheriff, Mr. Shaw, immediately took such steps as the emergency seemed to require, ...

Irish History in Irish Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 3 May 1873

Irish History in Irish Schools. From the N. Y. Tribune. Weak are the ways of “statesmanship,” and especially of English “statesmanship,” so far as all Irish affairs arc concerned. While the Gladstone overthrow and reinstatement give a fresh interest to the old, old misfortunes of the unhappy country, we are glad to seize the opportunity to direct attention more to phases of English effort to deal with the problem of Irish education.... The Irish youth, it seems, are not to know Irish history I What would be thought of au American school system which took care that the pupils should know nothing of American history? Of course, the cases from one point of view are not alike; hut the question is, whether an Irishman has not aright to be acquainted with the history of his country? However, this is a matter which will he better comprehended by a statement of several facts. When Dr. Lyon Playfair lately was in Dublin, investigating the education problem, he visited the Central Model Schoo...

How France Stands. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 3 May 1873

How France Stands. French energy, thrift, and financial skill have achieved wonders in accomplishing the tremendous task which the late war and its legacy of debt rendered imperative; but much still remains to be done, How very serious the prospect is to the whole nation, each new Budget shows too cleirly. Briefly stated, what has been done since the conclusion of peace with Germany, is simply this. France has mortgaged her resources to the amount of £240,000,000, raised bv two enormous loans; she has aided a large total to her floating debt, and she has imposed taxes which, though oppressive, yet do not cover her annual expenditure—swollen as that now is by the additional interest on her debt. Thus the prodigious efforts made, so far from clearing off liability, do not prevent it from increasing; the sacrifices made by every taxpayer are in vain; and each year, instead of bolding out prospects of relief, only brings to light the necessity for a fresh contribution. The Budgets, no d...
