OUR NEW YORK LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 24 May 1873

OUR NEW YORK LETTER. New York, May 13, 1873. The Growing Glory of the Church in IVcw York Is a theme on which much might be written without wearying one interested in its progress. What is true of New York is equally 1 rue of the whole country: but it is sufficient for me just now to bear testimony to the growth of the Church in this island of Manhattan. It must not be forgotten that the marvellous stretching out of New York itsell is one of the most astonishing results of commercial tendencies. The satisfaction that the Catholic derives ironi the continual building of beautiful church edifices is in the 'fact that, looking back thirty years, they have sprung up in a proportion three times greater than the city itself. There is little need for me to recall to the readers of The Pilot the extreme poverty of the immense numbers of the immigrants from Ireland during the terrible period of ber famine. They came in hundreds of thousands, ill - clad, ill-shod, but with stout hearts and br...

Another Catastrophe. Forty Lives Lost. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 24 May 1873

Another Catastrophe. Forty Lives Lost. One more terrible catastrophe on the list which is already too fresh with additions. On the afternoon of the 13th Inst., an explosion took place in the Drummond coal mine in Pictou county, Nova Scotia, by which probably iorty ‘lives are lost. The manager and assistant manager and about the number of workmen named were in the pit wben it occurred. Late at night the fire was still burning, and all effort* to extinguish it were of little avail. There is great excitement, and the wives and mothers of the men in the pit are wild with agony. Rev. James McKenna, Parish Priest of Lurgan, Cos. Armagh, Ireland, is now travelling in this country ior the purpose of raising lands to complete the New Church arid schools and the Convent of the Sisters of Mercy in liis parish. The number of Catholics in this parish a low years ago was about 3000, and it Is now reckoned as over GOOO. The immense majority of the old inhabitants and nearly all the new, are very p...

LATEST STEAMER NEWS. AFRICA. An Appeal to Arms. The King of Ashantee, one of the most powerful West African princes, has declared war against Groat Britain, and his army, 3500 strong, is besieging a fortified town on the English coast.: God help him. AUSTRALIA. Demand for Horses. The horse-breeders of Australia are preparing for a demand for horses. Already Melbourne has received an order for 1000 remounts and artillery horses from the Indian Government, and competent authorities say that at least 5000 are wanted. Australia is, or appears to be, the only source of supply, and attention to horsebreeding lately has waned through the decrease in the value of horses. It is clear that India cannot be supplied from Eng land—the cost and loss of transport would be frightful. There are but few horses in India or the Cape. GERMANY. The afew German Gold Coin. The total of the new German gold coin - age is now estimated to have passed the sum of thirty millions sterling. It would appear, howev...

The School System of Savannah, Ga. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 24 May 1873

The School System of Savannah, Ga. The following is taken from the Catholic Review. Deserves attention—merits imitation:—“ln its school system Savannah has taken the initiative in the adoption of a just and equitable system. By special statute its Board of Education is independent of State direction in the government of the city schools. Until within three years ago the Catholics had been obliged, besides paying taxes for the public schools, to expend annually some $BOOO to $lO,OOO in the maintenance' of two separate schools of their own, where their children could learn religious principles as well as secular knowledge. By the efforts of the Bishop, however, seconded by lion. J. MacMahon, a prominent and most zealous citizen, an admirable arrangement was adopted by the Board, which very nearly attains the just and Catholic desideratum in this important matter. By this plan the two Catholic schools, which are large buildings, meeting the full Catholic wants of the city, and attended...

LOYALTY OF CATHOLICS. Archbishop Manning as an Englishman. An Important Question. The following address, delivered a short time ago to the Catholic Union in Sheffield, England, by Archbishop Manning, is of unusual interest to Catholics in this country . The same charges are made against us here as there; and can he met with the same answers. Wo recommend this address to all our readers On coming amongst you I have no difficulty in finding what topics to speak upon; rather the difficulty is amongst topics so numerous to know what to select, but sometimes events determine our choice; and an hour ago I received, through the kindness of one of my friends, a copy of a Sheffield newspaper which, with great felicity, lias determind the choice ot the subject on which I will speak. B e are told in this newspaper that it is impossible for Catholics to be good Englislimen-that unpatriotic Ultramontanism is inconsistent with progret-s. and that the Catholics of this day are standing aloof in a ...

Why the Modocs Killed General Canby. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 24 May 1873

Why the Modocs Killed General Canby. The daily papers have related the circumstance of a horrible massacre of Modocs by Captain Wright’s company some twenty years ago. The details of this event are briefly summed up in the following telegram from San Francisco, dated the 20th ult. In 1852, Northern California was disturbed by Indian troubles, and the same year a company under command of Captain Benjamin Wright was organized, and proceeded from Yreka to the Indian country around Tide Lake and the lava beds. They fought three unsuccessful battles, the force being insufficient for the subjection of the Modocs. They returned to Yreka, organized a large force, and marche 1 again to the Modoc country. Winter approaching found the Modocs’ supply of blankets, ammunition and food extremely limited, consequently the Modocs were anxious for the cessation of hostilities. In April Captain Wright received the Modoc overtures with great cordiality. A peace conference was agreed upon, and a place a...
