? ??--Sccle0ia#tita\ fiiiteiUgnirt. LETTER OL1 HIS GRACE THE LORD PRI MATE TO THIS CATHOLIC GLYAIGY OF THE ARCHDIOCESE Off ARMAGH. . (From the Tablet.) ? /.Continued from our last.) ? U it were not too long, I would here insert a Pastoral letter lately published by the TSisliop of 'Viviers, in which he explains the sentiments of the French Church upon this important subject, and shows what practical co-operation is intended to be given to mixed systems. I will limit, myself to a 'few extracts. After having spoken of the impor tance of the Faith, he thus proceeds : — ? ? ' It here becomes my duty to point out to you a rock, on which this -Faith,, so precious/ may suffer shipwreck. The rock I allude to -is 'that indifference in matters of religion, which, is practised m public, and, as it were, ui an official manner, in certain educational establishments. In these houses heresy and Catholicity have, without hesitation, been placed in presence of each other : there is a temple for one,...
MAITLAND. THE FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 July 1851
MAITLAND. THE li'LOODS. ? . ( troin the Maitland Mercury. ) The Hunter has continued to fall steadily since Friday last, and yesterday was about four feet above its ordinary level wt high water. Wallis's Creek is also falling steadily. The water on the flat land along the river and creek has drawn off to a great extent, and the damage to the growing crops or wheat Juce'rne, barley, &c, it is hoped will be very slight, and will in most cases be com pensated by the increased produce where the water lay the shortest periods. There ai-e, however, many localities, of limited extent, whore the water must necessarily lay for months, or oven years, from the absence of all drainage unless new drains are cut : such as the Uolwarra lagoon, the lagoons on the Dagworth farms, &c, &c, which have now for some years been dry and cultivated. Our information regarding the upper course of the river is that the Hunter has been bank high at Aberdeen, preventing. all passing for t...
GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 July 1851

Mr. Kavenagh, held an examination of the boys and girls attending the Catholic school of this town, under the management of Mr. arid Mrs. Sheehy, in the school room.

After the examination, His Grace distributed some neatly bound books as prizes to such of the children as distinguis...
TURON DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 July 1851
TURON DIGGINGS. From various and respectable sources we have gleaned the following items of information respect ing the present state of the Turon Diggings. The immediate and most obvious effect of the new discoveries is a general dispersion of the mining i population over a large extent of country, but none have contributed so largely to produce this result as the discovery of the gold fields of the Turon. There are gathered over a wide extent or country a mass of human beings variously estimated by different calculators at from 80.0 to 1500 souls^ But this dispersion is not so much a matter of choice as of necessity. The long intervals between the water holes not only in the Turon rivulet, but in the Oakey Creek, Two-mile Creek, and Crudine Creek, render it impossible to conduct mining ope rations, except in localities distant from each other. The consequence is, that wherever there is the greatest extent of water frontage the largest num ber of miners are assembled, and to a trav...

Hardy, who is superintending a party at the Turon diggings on behalf of the firm, in which he states the astound ing fact that they have procured 10 lbs. of gold with a quick-silver machine, in something less than two days. The letter, he states, was evidently written in a hurry, and Mr. Jtlardy is. not very ex plicit as to the time. Mr. Bush is prepared to say that it cannot be more than two days, and is pro bably less.

Literature. RELIGIOUS PROCESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 July 1851
Uitit'atut?** RELIGIOUS PROCESSIONS. rCOMMUNlCATEB.J Those who have not lilted the embroidered veil of faith, which hangs from the hands of the Angels of Compassion before the wisdom ot the Church, and which is raised but for hearts pure as the holy things it ludes, can not but smile at the pompous processions of the pure, on the days devoted to the society of God. A nation which loves poetry, and pleasure, and perfumes, feels most unbounded disgust on beholding the association of the three, each in its fulness, and all as one (earth sprung idea of the most glorious Trinity) in the services cf the Catholic Church. And yet even to him who but looks for the passing beauties of this life and who seeks the momentary images of loveliness, the flowers of thought which bloom and charm to wither and sicken, these precessions present sweets which cannot be concealed. W hat admirable representations are they, of the life of the good, and the evil can look on virtue with approbation. How do th...

REASONS FOR NOT SIGNING AN ADDRESS TO HER MAJESTY, ON THE RECENT SO-CALLED PAPAL AGGRESSION. [The following able pamphlet has been forwarded tons by the kindness of a friend.] [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 July 1851
REASONS FOR NOT SIGNING AN ADDRESS TO HER MAJESTY, ON THE RECENT SO-CALLED PAPAL AGGRESSION. (BY THE EARL OF ST. GERMANS.) [The following able pamphlet has been forwarded tons by the kindness of a friend.] The reasons which have induced me to abstain from signing any of the Addresses to the Queen on the subject of the recent so-called Papal Aggression, are briefly, but I hope clearly, stated in the following pages. These addresses appear to me to bind, in a greater or less degree, those who may sign them to the support of any measures that may be proposed to Parliament for the purpose of repelling the supposed Aggression, I am unwilling to be so bound, I do not know what measures will be proposed to Parliament for this purpose, and I am, therefore, unable to say what course I shall think it my duty to take in respect to them. This consideration might, however, be in sufficient to prevent me from uniting my voice on this occasion to the voices of so many of my Protestant fellow-subje...
MR. LONGMORE'S ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 July 1851
~~~^~1&$l. LONGMORE'S ELECTION. ' Wb are glad to. find that' the Committee and tne electors generally, who are favourable to the return of this gentleman as representative in the New Oouncii^are taking active, steps to secure his elec tion of which there seems now to be very little doubt. A silly, if not a malicious, report has been set afloat within the last few clays to the effect that Mr. Longmpre intended to retire trom tne conies. We'can state most positively that this is a ' pure invention of the enemy,' and that Mr. Longmore and his friends are determined to poll to the last. We shall be then able to distinguish between the veal and the pretended friends of civil and religious liberty, and of the best interests of the colony.
Dublin, Wednesday Evening. March 5 THE ROMAN CATHOLIC MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 July 1851
Dublin. Wednesday Eveninn. Mnmi Z THE ROMAN CATHOLIC MOVEMENT. The Roman Catholic C ergy of the Diocese of Limerick, headed by their 'Dean ' have put forth resolutions on the subject of the 'penal laws,' in the course of which the Rev. Conclave very plainly intimate ? to use the words of their local organ ? that while they love peace, law, and order they, 'as well as universal Ireland,' con sider this most holy and desirable peace can not be guaranteed if any attempt be made to reimpose penal laws on the Catholic sub jects of the Crown. The sixth resolution runs to the following effect : — . 'That we have seen with extreme sorrow and in dignation tho spirit with which the ' aggression' of the late Govern rnpnt has been hailed by a large por tion of the Piote?tant Clergy of this kingdom and of this locality. That eating up nearly £1,000,000 of our revenues, without any title but the power of the State, the people who support them 'without equi valent sympa:hy or acknowledgment might ...
