Wendell Phillips on Fronde. Ou Tuesday evening, April 29, Tremont i Temple, Boston, was crowded, to hear Wendell Phillips lecture on “The Statements of Froude.” We have reported this lecture before, so that our readers are familiar with it; but we think it will be interesting to go over the main points once more. The lecture was for the benefit of the Home for Destitute Catholic Children. Every seat in the house was filled, and many people stood in the passages. On the platform were Rev. It. W. Brady, S.J., Rev.Fr, Duncan, S. J., Rev. D. S. Healy,Rev. Jeremiah Healy, Rev. Thos. Scully, Rev. Jos. F. Mohan, and several other gentlemen. Mr. Donahoe introduced Mr. Phillips to the audience, Avho received him with applause. The eloquent speaker in accounting for the selection of a subject which Mr. Froude had made to present to America, claimed that the Irish qm stion was by no means small or unimportant, as some' suggested. The Irish question is no local question; it affects the interest...

OUR NEW YORK LETTER. Ni:\y York, April 29, 1873. I The First of 3lay Bting at Hand, 1 firnl myself on the verge of that terribly “moving” time when New York plays base ball with its furniture, and all the players are ‘ ‘ out” together. 1 have been left in a terrible state of suspense. There are ominous signs all over the house; but it is next to impossible to learn my exact fpte. It may be a “ moving;” it may only be a “ house cleaning.” I have said only, yet when 1 think of the horrors of that time of pails of water, of soft soap and floor cloths, of strange wicrd women with their heads tied up in check aprons, and armed yitli brooms and feather dusters, my heart sinks within me. it has this advantage over moving, that when I subj mit to a change of landladies, the cleaning has to be gone through all the same. 1 often wonder if there is a place in this wide, wide city where the furniture wagon ceases from troubling, and the keg of soft soap is at rest. A fearful thought has crept t...

The Wrecks of the Past. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 10 May 1873

The Wrecks of the Past. An idea of tlie comparative magnitude of the disaster to the steamer Atlantic, may be obtained from the following statement of the prominent marine accidents since 1840: In the month of March, 1841, the steamer President sailed from this port with a large number of passengers; when two days out she is supposed to have encountered a terrible gale, and was never again heard from. On the 28tli of April, 1847, the Exmouth, an emigrant ship from Londonderry, was wrecked, and nearly 243 lives lost. A still more disastrous wreck was that of the Koyul Adelaide, which occurred on the Tongue Sands. oIT Margate, on which oocasion 400 lives were lost. In September, 1850, the Edmond was lost on the western coast of Ireland, and more than half of the 200 passengers perished. Upon the occasion of the loss of the troop-ship Birkenhead in Simon’s Bay.

P. S. Gilmore’s Next Jubilee. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 10 May 1873

P. S. Gilmore’s Next Jubilee. A Boston letter in the New York World contains the following‘ ‘ A rumor which an English friend communicated to mo some weeks ago, has been sufficiently confirmed by conversation with a friend of Mr. P. 'S. Gilmore to warrant the announcement that the London season of 1874 will bo made memorable by a mammoth musical festival to bo directed by the projector of our jubilees. Mr. Gilmore has abandoned for the present his efforts to organize at Washington a national band of sixty-llve pieces, the money difficulties in the case proving too great for even his indefatigability. Such an organization would cost upwards of $125,0u0 ayear—for skilful performers could not bo obtained for less than irom $35 or $4O a week—and Congressmen seemed to be about unanimous of the opinion that such an expenditure would be considered unwarrantable extravagance. And when an entire session is occupied in appointing and heat ing investigating committees, perhaps the country had ...

An Extraordinary Case. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 10 May 1873

An Extraordinary Case. The London Telegraph says: A knotty point cameup lately at Liverpool Assizes, tor the solution of ■which the learning of the Astronomer Royal and the shrewdness of Sancho Panza ought to have been combined. The case was that of “ Schofield v. Jones,” and turned upon a disputed claim under a marine insurance. On August 8 1871, the owners of the steamship Caspian insured her for a year at £23,001) sterling. The vessel went abroad, and on the 9th of August, 1872, her owners renewed the insurance for the following year, hut at the enhanced sum of £25,000. Meanwhile, by a strango fortuity, the Caspian during that very night, between the Bth and the 9th of August, struck on a rock in the Belle Isle Straits, and was totally lost. Hence arose the dispute—was she lost before or after midnight? If before, then the £2.3,000 covered the underwriters’ liabilities; if afterwards, even by a minute, the}' would have to pay £2OOO in excess. Now, at Belle Isle Straits, the diffe...

“ Temperance Brought to the Bar.” CHICOPEE, Mass, April 19, 1873. To the Editor of The Pilot. Dear Sir Again I have to trespass on your kind indulgence, and request insertion in the columns of your most excellent journal for the following letter. 1 do so for tlie purpose of removing any wrong impression that may bo formed in the minds of the public by my former communication. I indicted the letter, which appeared m your issue of April 5, with the view of eliciting some profitable information concerning the temperance mot ement in this State, and also for the purpose of extracting from practical minds some useful suggestions towards remedying certain abuses which are known to exist in many places. And it we were to search, perhaps we could not find stronger proof of the fact, that abuses do exist, than that which is contained in the flimsy apology for a defence offered to the world by an officer of the organization In North Adams. With that document before the public, the temperance ...
