The Recent Storm. LOSS OF THE STEAMER ATLANTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 5 December 1846

The Recent Storm. LOSS OF THE STEAMER ATLANTIC. The splendid steamer Atlantic, which plied between Norwich, Ct., and New York, is lost, with Capt. DcsTAM,?and about fifty passengers. She was anchored at Fisher’s Island. At 4 o’clock Tnursday morning of last week, she parted her chain and went to pieces in five minutes after. The Atlantic left Allen’s Point about 1 o’clock on Thursday morning,—the wind blowing a violent gale, and the sea being exceedingly rough. She however proceeded on her voyage without any difficulty until opposite New London, when she was struck by three very heavy seas—the fir st two without effect. When the third sea struck her, something seemed to have given way in her machinery or works, muking a report like a gun, and instantly filling the vessel with steam. The Atlantic now began to drift slowly towards the shore, when an anchor was thrown over, which, for some time, dragged, but finally got a hold, and there held for some time, but beginning again to drag,...

The American War. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 5 December 1846

The American War. TJiere has been no response, as yet, in Massachusetts, in answer to the call of the General Government for a Regiment. The regiment of volunteers from Pennsylvania is made up. Six companies from Philadelphia are accepted—the others will be from the interior. The New York Regiment is fast filling up. Gen. Scott has arrived at N. Y'ork. The General and his staff leave for Tampico direct, with the additional volunteer force just called into service. It is supposed that he will subsequently connect his forces with those under command of Gen. Taylor, of whom he will take precedence. A correspondent of the Baltimore American says:—From both the Navy and War Department, I learn that every preparation is making for an attack upon Tampico. The force commanded by Major-General Patterson will march from Matamoras, down by the coast through Tamaulipas. By an arrival from Havana dates are received from Vera Cruz to the 31st and from the city of Mexico to the 27th, brought to Ne...

Foreign. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 5 December 1846

Foreign. New Zealand—Progress of Catholicity. The Moniteur of Wednesday contains a recital of the origin, progress, and present situation of the Catholic missions in New Zealand, and in the archipelagoes of Tonga and Wallis. According to this account, the Catholic missions in those islands were very prosperous. In New Zealand the number of Catholics in February, 1846 ; amounted to 5,000; at Tonga, between 500 and 600; at Wallis, 2,500; Futuna, 748; and in New Caledonia there were also many neophytes. The personnel of these missions consisted, at New Zealand, of two bishops, sixteen clergymen, and eight friars; at Tongataboo, of three clergymen and a friar; at La Kemba, in the Viti islands, two clergymen and a friar; in the Wallis islands, a bishop, three clergymen, and three friars; at Futuna, two clergymen and a friar; in New Caledonia, a bishop, a clergyman, and two friars; in Western Melanasia, a bishop, seven clergymen, and six friars.

SWITZERLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 5 December 1846

SWITZERLAND. The affairs of Switzerland at this moment are full of interest. Various accounts have been published as to the causes which have led to the late singular insurrection, aud the substitutions of a temporarily provisional for the legitimate government of Geneva. The following letter from a London Conservative Journal—the Morning Post, describes the true causes of the changes which now distract civil society throughout every canton in Switzerland:— I have had* much pleasure in perusing your correct and interesting articles on the present state of Switzerland, the more so, as other papers of note have spread a quite wrong and false view of the subject, and considered the question as one of decisive warfare of Protestantism against Popery. But such is not the case, far from it, Switzerland has no sound true Protestant feeling at heart, and those who ought, by their position and calling, to have given an example to others, or taught them the doctrines of the Gospel, as you ver...

THE NEW YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 5 December 1846

THE NEW YEAR. TIIIHMLOT. SATURDAY. DECEMBER 5. 1846. Three more numbers will complete our present volume. It is time that our agents should commence canvassing for new subscribers, for the year 1847. It is true we have a large list, yet we have not half the number we should have, when we take into account our numerous population. Therefore our friends must exert themselves, and send in as many new subscribers as possible before January. A little exertion on the part of our friends and agents, would double our list. Let every one send in anew subscriber. It can be done with a little exertion. Try it, friends.

STATE OF PARTIES. SECOND ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 5 December 1846

STATE OF PARTIES. SECOND ARTICLE. In a former number, we made some remarks upon the declining aspect of the great party which now governs the Republic. We added, that though the Democrats seemed to be going down, it was doubtful whether the Whigs could become dominant. This party has many disadvantages to contend with, a few of which we will point out. The most obvious, and perhaps the most important, is that they have no great stirring principle to plead before the popular tribunal. Their views on banking, and other matters, proved not acceptable to the majority of the nation; and they have not yet modified or renewed them in any form which promises to be more successful. If the Democrats do not give them an opening on the questions of trade and war, by some courses of wrong-headed persistence, there is danger of their being shut up for want of something to say, of their agitators becoming bankrupt through mere loss of capital. To the most casual observer, their elements of union s...

LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 5 December 1846

LECTURE. The lecture on Wednesda/evening,2sth ult., was delivered by Rev. Mr. O’Brien of East Boston. He stated that, being present at the Commencement exercises in Harvard University upon a late occasion, he had heard two papers read, impugning the Catholic Church. One of them had suggested to him the subject of this discourse : it was upon the Papal Conclave. He was struck by the ignorance displayed, even at the seat of learning, with respect to the character and influence of the Papacy ; and he believed the exhibition of a jittle truth upon the subject could not fail to be interesting. He remarked that the Conclave and the Papacy might be regarded, in some sense, as the same, as the Conclave was the council, and collective adviser of the Holy Father. He then proceeded to trace the course ofthe Church along the stream of History, ns denoted in the movements of its earthly head, from the establishment of Christianity till the present. H.e depicted the influence exercised upon state...

BASE FALSEHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 5 December 1846

BASE FALSEHOOD. The miserable, cowardly native faction, in this city, issued the following among other matters, in an extra, on the eve of the last election. We merely publish the article to show to what lengths the nativist faction will go to effect their hellish designs. But, thank God, they have been signally defeated. Every word of the following is a base lie:— Ten thousand armed Irishmen in Boston!! To revenge upon the cittzens of Boston for the burning of that sink of iniquity, the Charlestown convent, by a posse of boys, the Catholic Bishop of Boston rallied together all of his spiritual dupes from the surrounding towns and in a very short time had collecled 10.000 men who were ready at a moment’s notice to rush upon the defenceless citizens. The Catholic Bishop proceeded to our worthy mayor and informed him that unless an immediate restitution was made for the burning of the Convent, he would let loose his ten thousand minions and bid them burn our churches, our Public Build...

CALUMNIES ON OUR PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 5 December 1846

CALUMNIES ON OUR PEOPLE. When the Mexican war commenced,the native, anti-popery, and other papers,said the Catholic soldiers would not fight against the Mexicans, because they were Catholics. These no-popery fellows are always blustering about their prowess, valour, &,c., but when the country is in danger they are wanting. Let the following testimony, in our favor, from the distinguished and able editor of the Albany ( N.Y .) Evening Journal, put these brawlers to the blush : Thc Killed and Wounded. The organ of Native Americanism, in New York, warned the people against the employment of Irishmen in the Mexican army, upon the ground that they would not fight against persons of their own religious faith. If any thing was needed to wipe out this vile calumny, we have it in the long and fatal list of “Killed and Wounded.” It is only necessary to read thc names to see that two-thirds if not three-fourths of all who shed their blood in that gallant action, were Irishmen. This...

ERIN’S GREEN BANNER. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 5 December 1846

ERIN’S GREEN BANNER. BY JACK WATERWAYS. For the Pilot. Mv country’s Flag—when will the hour arrive When thou shalt freely o’er Erina wave, Proud, as of old when Brian's arm did strive ’Guinst ruthless Dane, and found an honor’d grave! No tyrant then could Erin’s sons enslave; Tho’ since, they long have borne the galling chain; But soon, by Heaven’s aid, her children brave Will frame her laws, and safely guard again Their lov’d and ovely Isle from Norman, Guelph, or Dane. Tho’ I with feeble hand do strike the lyre, To sing of glory past, or yet to come; My heart is warm’d withal by holy fire, Which bids me love next God my childhood’s home. Tho’ long I’ve roamed o’er the ocean's loam, Tho’ long and far from thee my steps have atray’d, Erin ! —no clime, nor change, e’er caus’d to roam My heart, or love, from thee. And if delay’d, The day at length will conie for which I long have pray’d. * The day will come—e’en now it comes apace— When Erin’s Banner Green will be display’d From many ...

LETTERS FROM MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 5 December 1846

LETTERS FROM MEXICO. Camp Brady, Camargo, Mexico, ) October 31, 1640. ) Dear Pilot, —I would have written sooner, but our movements, altogether, have been so hurried and unexpected. Our passage from New York to Point Isabel took up 31 days. We were taken up the Rio Grande in a steamer, and were 4 days corning to Camargo, which is about 400 miles from the mouth of the river, though it is no more than 150 by land. Jt is a noble river, very serpentine in all its course; and its banks are very low, so that in the rainy season 1 should think it would inundate the country to a considerable extent. It may also, like some other great rivers be liable to shift its channel; and these features, taken together, do not, one might suppose, render it the most suitable for a great national boundary. Passing up, we saw Matamoras at a distance, and all admired its appearance. It is built about a quarter of a mile from the river, and looks will at that distance. Reynosa with its beautiful chapel, was ...

RELIEF FOR IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 5 December 1846

RELIEF FOR IRELAND. Washington, Nov. 28, 1846. Poor, ill-fated Ireland—how bitter is the cup of misery, which she has been forced to drain! For centuries past she has been groaning under all the evils that a tyrannical government could inflict upon her, and now she writhes under the heavy hand of a just Providence, who in His wisdom has sent upon her an infliction as awful as any that an angry God ever visited upon man, the rebellious creature of his hands. Who is there that can read without a shudder the awful accounts of famine t\nd starvation that are presented to us in every file of newspapers that reaches us from across the Atlantic? God of mercy! what a scene! four millions of human beings starving and dying for bread! How peculiarly blessed are we in this land of plenty and abundance. Here, no man need want for the necessaries of life. But amid our present prosperity, we should remember, that the same calamity which now oppresses Ireland to the dust, may, sooner or later, be ...

SERMON. Dr. Ryder’s sermon in the Cathedral on Sunday evening, on behalf of the Female Orphan Asylum, was the most eloquent discourse we have yet heard in Boston.— It was one of those efforts we can freely praise without being distressed by any internal whisperings of that awful word, puff. It reminded us of some of the highest examples of pulpit oratory extant. The collection amounted to $309,98.
