Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

Correspondence. Christmas—Relief for Ireland. — f.litston Irish Volunteers—Maryland Volumeers The Church, 3'c., fyc. Baltimore, Jan. 3d, 1847. A merry greeting anti a happy new year to thee, worthy Pilot! This is the season of merry greetings, and the interchange of eivilities and friendships. Cares nnd troubles are forgotten for the time,that nil may make glad themselves nnd their friends; and while the writer has been enjoying the pleasures of those around him, be assured he has often wished that he could spend one of the days with old friends in Boston—friends never to be forgotten? But as that cannot be, he sends to all, including the survivors of the clique, a happy, thrice happy new year,—to the Pilot, and all the little Pilots ditto. In our city Christinas is universally observed. All classes claim it, and all religious sects do it reverence. The children hail it with shouts, for that day their mamas cut their binding strings, and let them go it with a Jupseness; the larger b...

BOSTON IRISH PROTESTANT MUTUAL RELIEF SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

BOSTON IRISH PROTESTANT MUTUAL RELIEF SOCIETY. To the. Editor of the Boston Pilot: Dear Sir, — I beg leave through the columns of your independent journal, to lay before the public a few statements with regard to some recent doings of the Society, whose name stands at the head of this communication. According to the second article of the Constitution, the election of officers takes place the first Thuisday in December; pursuant to this arrangement, the election took place last month, when, after four trials or ballottings, it was duly declared by the returning officers, and from the Chair, that, the writer of these lines was chosen President for the ensuing year. As soon as I took the chair, some twenty or more of my fellow members left the hall in a very disorderly manner, muttering as they left, that “ they would not sit under a repealer ,” and called upon all true protestants to follow them; after the noise occasioned by this withdrawal of those men had subsided, I continued to m...

Spirit of the Press. THE POPE-THE ITALIAN STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

Spirit of the Press. THE POPE-THE ITALIAN STATES. From the London Morning Chronicle. Ages have past away since the division of the nation into the two parties first took place, hut Italians are at this moment as clearly separated into Guelfs and Ghibellines as in the mediaeval portion of their history. When Italy became a mere chessboard for the petty princes whose skill was to hold in equilibrium so many opposing forces—when the tortuous policy of the Borgias, of the Sporzas, of the Medici, was carried out with a complete and unholy perfection—all that was done in subordination to the two grand opposing forces—the two great motive powers— Austria and Rome. So it is now. It would lead us, however, too fur to show how, through the vicissitudes of state policy, and after so many revolutions, the two great powers of the country remain unchanged in name—for perhaps any other form of comparison than this would be sufflcently idle. Neither the Pope nor the Austria of the present day is th...

MEETING OF PARLIAMENT—IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

MEETING OF PARLIAMENT—IRELAND. From the London Morning Advertiser. A morning contemporary prepares us for the meeting of parliament ?‘for the dispatch of business” within a week of the day to which it stands adjourned—namely, the 19th of January. It has from time immemorial been the practice to predicate of every successive session of the legislature that it was destined to be one of the most important sessions on record. That, however, ma} be said with perfect truth of the session of 1847. It is a session which, so far as we can foresee, will be characterised by the absence of party exhibitions. This augurs well for the great national questions w hich will have to come under its consideration. It has been one of the worst features of our past legislation on many questions of grave moment that so much of party feeling was mixed up with it. All, therefore, must rejoice at the prospect of a better state of things in the session of 1847. The question of questions will be Ireland. What ...

LITERATURE OF YOUNG FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

LITERATURE OF YOUNG FRANCE. An article in Dolman's London Magazine, under the above head, thus speaks of Michelet, the Frgnch historian, and whose decease was announced by the last arrival:— “Michelet, who abused the priviliges of his professorial chair to calumniate the holiest institutions of the Catholic religion, and endeavor to introduce into the bosom of Christian families, mistrust of, and contempt for men, whose only vocation on earth, in imitation of him who transmitted to them their apostolical authority, is to call sinners to repentance. The infamous work, entitled, Du Pritre, de la Femme, de ta Famille, which has imparted so much unenvied notoriety to the name of Michelet, has derived, perhaps, a good deal of adventitious success in France from the mere fact of its formal condemnation by ecclesiastical authorities. It would, perhaps, be more expedient for the general interests of religion and morality, if the Church rather visited with her contempt, than honored by her c...

A VIEW OF THE BATTLE GROUND. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

A VIEW OF THE BATTLE GROUND. CHAPARRAL. We select the following extracts from a letter in the N. O. Delta, dated Monterey, Dec. 2. The first place we visited was the eminence above the Bishop’s Palace, immediately to the right of which is the hill on which the first redoubt was captured. It was distant from where I stood about a mile; and after it was taken, the division clambered up to the top of this hill, drove the enemy from it into the Palace (500 yards below,) and drawing up the rugged steep a piece of cannon, commenced throwing balls and grape into the palace fort. It was from this eminence the boys first had a view of the city, and a lovely one it presents. Not only all parts of the city, with its white buildings, is seen from this point, but the whole valley, with its corn and sugar fields, (varying from one to ten acres,) until they lose themselves, or the naked eye can no longer distinguish them, so diminutive do they become. It is a fact, that in running the eye over the...

A MEXICAN HEROINE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

A MEXICAN HEROINE. The N.O. Picayune relates the following romantic exploits of a female who is said to have commanded a company of lancers at the battle of Monterey. Seized with a patriot spirit, she unsexed herself, and, dressed in a full suit of a captain of lancers, she desired to be led againt the foe ; and swore that she would never yield until the “ northern barbarians” were driven from her natal land, or until she had shed the last drop of blood in defence of her native country. Previous to our attack she was paraded before the troops, and greatly excited and augmented their courage. She harangued them, and desired to be posted at that spot where the first shot should fall, and where the thickest of the battle should wage. It is reported that on the 21st she led the charge of lancers which proved fatal to some of our command—among the number the lamented Field. There’s an example of heroism worthy the days of old ! It has remained for Mexico to produce a second Joan of Arc, ...

THE HERO OF HEW ORLEANS. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

THE HERO OF HEW ORLEANS. The Barre Gazette, in alluding to the anniversary of the battle of New Orleans, says:— “To-day (January Bth) ?s the battle ot New Orleans. There are few events likely to live longer in the memory of the people of this country that this. It will not only be remembered as a victory most gloriously achieved, but as a prominent event in the life of Andrew Jackson. The event helped to make that man the idol of admiring millions, and in turn his name as it goes down to farthest posterity will preserve the recollection of the battle. The bridge of Lodi was a place where Napoleon won immortality; but the place will be no longer«remembered for its connection with the splendor of Napoleon’s name. The battle of Jan. 8, 1816, was the “crowning victory” of the war which it closed—but it will gather additional brightness from the after deeds of the man who is the “crowning” man of this century and continent. Now that Andrew J ickson is dead, and partizan clamor has ceased...

EMIGRATION TO AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

EMIGRATION TO AMERICA. We have procured from the custom house (says the iV. Y .

THE TABLET ON THE CONTROVERSY. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

THE TABLET ON THE CONTROVERSY. THE PILOT. SATURDAY. JANUARY 10. IB4T. We noticed, last week, the general views of the London Tablet on the moral force question. He agrees with the policy of O’Connell,and with his practical course, but differs from him on the abstract principle involved. We endeavored, in our last, to show the necessity that lay upon O’Connell to advance an abstract principle : we proceed to examine the argument with which the Tablet assails that princip|p - * Before we go further, we must stop to notice the admirable manner in which the Tablet handles those propositions he would disprove. He lays them down, and eliminates their meaning, with as much clearness and impartiality as if they were his own. Before he advances one argument against them, he makes them fully understood, puts them in the plainest light,without distortion and without reserve. Such conduct betrays the intellectual power of a writer who is not afraid of light and fair play ; one who is conscious ...

BROWNSON’S REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

BROWNSON’S REVIEW. The present number of this work is very effective. The first article is a discussion of the grounds of Protestant faith, conducted in the manner of a dialogue, and enlivened by the scenes and characters of real life. It pushes the principle of private interpretation in points of faith to some amusing absurdities. Article 11, explains and combats Mr. Newman’s theory of the developement of Christian doctrine; a theory which, it appears, is to be the detected in Northcote’s fourfold difficulty - . This is a long and elaborate article. The next article sets up faith, hope, and charity, against the modern hobby of the religious movement party. It exposes the extravagances of Michelet, and other reformers, with great clearness. “The Natural and Supernatural,” is a discussion growing out of a cootmunica- | tion from a Protestant Minister. It clears up some of the doubts which are created by peculiar theories in religion. The article on “Religious Novels” criticizes that ...

REV. MR. HASKINS’ LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

REV. MR. HASKINS’ LECTURE. The Reverend Pastor of St. John’s lectured, before a crowded fmdience, on “THE MASSACRE OF ST. BARTHOLOMEW.” We noticed among other strangers who were present, several of the most respectable Protestant clergymen of our city. After premising that the general Catholic character given to the lectures during the present course was a source of gratification and of pride to our Catholic community, the reverend gentleman called the attention of his hearers to the massacre of St. Bartholomew, a subject that has for centuries been a fertile theme of calumny against the religion of our fathers, and has served as a pretence to Protestant governments to extirpate the ancient faith, and with fire and sword, imprisonment and confiscations to hurt and destroy its professors—an event, as I hope to show, purely political, the cause of which are to be sought and found in the reckless ambition and unbridled passions of political factions, yet by partisan historians so firml...

“SONGS AND BALLADS, FROM ANGLOIRISH LITERATURE.” [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 16 January 1847

“SONGS AND BALLADS, FROM ANGLOIRISH LITERATURE.” (third article.) We reckoned without our host, some time ago, when we talked of having done wtth controversy. We thought we might withdraw our attention from cotemporary papers, and turn it, more frequently, to popular information. We were mistaken; and, in consequence, the series of articles we had designed to write on the above named book, has been interrupted, and comes dropping out at long intervals. Hitherto, we have only commented on one of the poets from whose works the volume has been selected. Before we take leave of Moore, wo cannot help making a comparison between him and Burns. Both are the national poets of their respective countries; both are lyrical poets of the highest rank, and many other points of resemblance may be found between them. After Moore, Burns is the most popular poet in Ireland; and there are large districts of Ulster, where his popularity is unrivalled, even by that of the national melodist. But we would...
