Correspondence. IRLANDAIS AND BROWNSON’S REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

Correspondence. IRLANDAIS AND BROWNSON’S REVIEW. Mr. Irlandais: —l have read with indignation and disgust the impertinent letter you have addressed to Mr. Brownson, editor of the Quarterly Review; and as it is not likely that he will notice an assailant who has not the manliness to avow himself, and who, besides, has the meanness to descend to vulgar personalities, / will not suffer you to villify with impunity those men whom every Catholic, familiar with their writings in defence and vindication of our Church, must admire and honor. If you be what you pretend, an Irishman, certainly you have none of the spirit of chivalry for which our countrymen are every where distinguished, or you w'ould have scorned to assume the disguise of a mask, under which you conceal yourself, while aiming the shafts of personal malevolence at the reputation of the man whom you vainly try to injure. However, I presume you are a Frenchified Irishman as your signature implies, and your bombastic effusion, s...

REV. DR. MANAHAN’S LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

REV. DR. MANAHAN’S LECTURE. The lecture on the 4th inst., before the Y. C. F. Society, was delivered by Dr. Manahan, upon the subject of Philosophy and Faith. The Rev. lecturer proposed to exhibit the contrast between the influence of religion, and of unassisted human wisdom, in promoting the happiness, and amelioration of the human race. The purpose for which Divine Faith is given is to guide and purify the morals of the human family. This, philosophy attrtnpts in various ways. The different forms she assumes in her operations may be reduced to two general heads, Infidelity and Heresy; the one, an effort to set aside religion, the other, to bring it down to subordination under human wisdom. Some of the means adopted by philanthropy in these two forms are strange and remarkable. Generally, Infidel systems endeavor to excite men to the practice of virtue by appeals to the dignity and excellence of human nature, by invoking the spirit of pride that dwells in the human breast. Such a p...

OLIVER CROMWELL. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

OLIVER CROMWELL. At the meeting of the Repeal Association on the 2nd of December, Mr. O’Connell made the following remarks in relation to the butcher, Cromwell:— There has been a book lately published in England which I think is symptomatic of the tone of the English mind towards this country. I allude to the letters,speeches, and despatches of the celebrated Cromwell, by Thomas Carlyle, remarkable for writing a species of broken German, as harsh-sounding and grating on the ear as the pounding of blue-stones for the repairs of roads. Thus, Dr. Carlyle, in a chapt?r headed “ Irish Wars,” speaking of Cromwell, says: “ They rejected his summons and terms at Tredah ; he stormed the place, and, according to his promise, put every man of the garrison to death.” And, further on, this writer says—“ But let us take the letters themselves, and read them with various emotions,in which wonder will not fail. What a rage, widesweeping, inexorable as death, dwells in that heart—close neighbor to p...

LATE AND INTERESTING FROM BRAZIL AND THE ARGENTINE REPUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

LATE AND INTERESTING FROM BRAZIL AND THE ARGENTINE REPUBLIC. The ship Courier, Captain Wolfe, arrived at New York on Saturday, in the short passage of thirty-eight days from Rio Janeiro, bringing advices to the 29th December. The United States frigate Congress, Commodore Stockton, arrived at Rio on the 20th December, fifty days from Norfolk. The United States ship Plymouth, Commodore Henry; the frigate Raritan, Captain Gregory, and brig Bainbridge, Commander S. Pennington, were also at Rio. The papers brought by this arrival contain the Argentine official report of the battle in the river Parana, the French and English account of which has already been published. The Argentine forces were under the command of General Mancilla, who was severely wounded in the engagement, and the report is written by his second in command, Francisco Crespo. It confirms the published circumstances and event of the battle, with much glorification of the Argentine soldiers. General Crespo estimates the n...

MR. MOONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

MR. MOONEY. We observe from our Exchanges, that our “Glorious” CoWtryman, Mooney, is making distinguished way in the South—spreading the important facts of Irish History before the American public. The Charleston Mercury, of the 2nd Feb’y thus speaks of him:— This accoxnplished gentleman delivered his first Lecture on the History of Ireland, on Saturday Evening last. We do not recollect to have past a more agreeable hour. Many very interesting events of Irish History were embodied most pleasingly, and in the briefest possible hints. His powers df condensation, so important to a popular Lecturer, are very marked. Mr. Mooney referred to many great men that were Educated in Ireland during the ages, in whifch, in the language of Dr. Johnson, she was denominated “the school of the West of Europe.” Among these was King Alfred of England, who obtained from the Irish, a knowledge of (hat Frame of Government, which he subsequently transplanted to England, and which included the trial by Jury...

PUBLIC MORALS. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

PUBLIC MORALS. In nearly all newspapers which we read, there are accounts of murders perpetrated in every part of the United States. The slightest quarrel is considered a sufficient cause for taking the life of a human being. It is not men alone who are thus cut off, but even women and children. In the neighborhood of Helena, Arkansas, a Mrs. Nichols and her two children, one seven years old, and the other only nine months, are amongst the number recently assassinated. The annuls of crime do not relate any thing more barbarous. A mulatto has been arrested for this offence, and the Editor of the “ Shield ” says he would “ not lie surprised if the people were to taka the luw .in their own hands and burn the wretch, at the stake. We are opposed to mobs and Lynch law generally, but under circumstances like these, we do not know but that “ the end will justify the means .” This is bad logic and bad morals; destructive of all social order and tending to anarchy. But unfortunately the “ Sh...

IRISHMEN IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

IRISHMEN IN ENGLAND. The social results of the Union demand our best attention. If we can prove that national degradation is productive of individual degradation—if we can demonstrate that every blow aimed at our country hits some of us somewhere—surely we will be naturally led to the conclusion that our remedy lies in restoring our country from the condition of an abject province to the dignity of a nation. Let us consider for a moment how the Union affects Irishmen in England and Englishmen in Ireland. And, first, of Irishmen in England. Show us the man who will saytheUnion is not a blessed Union. It is, indeed, a blessed Union—a bitter blessed Union for such of us who, provincialised into pauperism at home, and beholding every office and every employment .worth having, in our own country, occupied by Englishmen and Scotchmen, escape from certain destitution at home, and fly to some as yet unprovincialised country for the chance of employment, the chance of subsistence, and the ch...

News, &c. Supreme Court, Boston. In the case of Thomas Riley, for setting lire to a dwelling house in the night time—an offence for which the penalty is death, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty, without leaving their seats. The prisoner was remanded to jail to answer the charge of burglary, at the naxt term of tne Municipal Court. One of the editors of the Christian Herald, who has resided in Boston the past year, says in this city there are three theatres, two hundred gambling establishments, not less than six hundred houses of ill fame, and two thousand places where intoxicating drinks are sold. The New York Globe says that since the 17th of June last, and up to the 4th instant, there have been shipped in that city, for the Naval Service, nine hundred and eighty-four hands, and of these, only twenty-seven are of foreign birth.

Congressional. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. NATURALIZATION LAWS-NATIVISM. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

Congressional. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. NATURALIZATION LAWS-NATIVISM. Wednesday, Dec. 30. Concluded. Mr. Sims, of South Carolina, said, that but for the eloquent remarks which had just fallen from the gentleman from Virginia, he should not have troubled the House, having cherished the hope that the present debate would come to a speedy termination. Mr. S. had felt pleasure in perusing the account given by Weems, in Ids Life of Marion of the patriotic and feeling manner in which the Father of his Country had expressed himself on visiting the spot where the brave De Kalb was now sleeping; and the sentiments to which Washington had given utterance found a ready response in his own bosom. But he felt it his duty to add one fact to the information possessed by the gentleman in relation to the grave of which he had so eloquently spoken. It was true that the remains of l)e Kalb now slept within the limits of South Carolina, in a spot near Camden; but it was not true that these sacred ashe...

INTERESTING CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

INTERESTING CORRESPONDENCE. The subject of the following correspondence was some time since faslely imprisoned through the wickedness of a bad woman, who had conspired to ruin his reputation. He was, our readers will remember, pardoned by the Governor of Indiana, after being fully convinced of the ltev. gentleman’s innocence. The young men of Baltimore, with our old friend Owen at their head, have done themselves great credit in presenting the Rev. Mr. WeinzoL'phlen with a Chalice, as a testimony of their regard for his innocence and virtue. The following correspondence we copy from the last Catholic Magazine: — Our readers no doubt will remember the letter which was published in the Magazine of September last, addressed to the Rev. Roman Weinzoephlen, by a committee of Catholic young men, on the occasion of presenting him a chalice, in the name of the Catholic young men of Baltimore. The chalice was transmitted through the medium of the Very Rev. Dr. Spalding of Kentucky, and desig...

THE RUINED CONVENT. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

THE RUINED CONVENT. TIE PILOT. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1846. The marks of blood, and the traces of crime are hard to be wiped out. Murderers, in all ages, have been betrayed by the blood of their victims; the sea has given up its dead to bear witness against the slayer; the exhumed body, dissected in its coffin, has delivered to the hand of justice the ingredients of the poison cup; and the dissevered frame, hidden in many, distant spots, has been brought back, its mangled parts fitted together, and laid out before the shuddering eyes of its destroyer. Twelve years ago dark deeds were done in Boston. Wizards, worse than the Salem witches, were at work: the bewitchers of souls who cast spells upon the people by the Satanic arts ot falsehood and fury. The magic raised a storm: the cauldron hissed and bubbled and boiled over. Then, a crowd of mad people rushed through Charlestown, at midnight directing their steps to a devoted house—a house of lonely women, who had left the world that t...

THE ANTI-CORN-LAW LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

THE ANTI-CORN-LAW LEAGUE. That school of British politicians who advocate free trade, have been increasing in numerical, and moral strength for some years, and they have been plying every art to gain popular opinion. Circumstances have enabled them to sew up the Conservative Ministry ; and there is every reason to suppose, that late events have flung around them a sufficient quantity of that noise, and glare, which sometimes elevates, and extends a party more than good principles, and strong arguments. As we may expect to find them all the go, for awhile, and carrying small politicians, and debating societies up like a whirlwind, a few observations on the party may not be ill timed. The Free traders, like some of our political sects, are obnoxious to the charge of one ideaism ; they have no measure to propose, but one. Against such a party, there are several objections Ist. It cannot assume the government of a nation ; for it is unprepared to deal with all the questions on which a g...

IMPERTINENCE OF NEWSPAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

IMPERTINENCE OF NEWSPAPERS. The readers of this Journal are aware, that it is not a religious publication, in the common sense of that term. Its conductors are laymen; their articles are witten on the business of this life, and this world’s politics; and their purpose is the elevation of the Irish character in this country, the Independence of Ireland, and the overthrow of sectarian prejudice. Of course, we provide intelligence of the movements of the Church to which the majority of our readers belong, and while our paper continues to be printed in a Christian country, we may very naturally be expected to do so. Of course, we advance nothing which we do not believe to be consistent with Christian principles; and, as long as we maintain them, it is our duty to do so. Of course, we do nothing wilfully in violation of the practice of religion; but for that we ask no praise nor elevation. All these things make us neither saints nor priests, nor bishops, nor Methodist parsons. But it is ...

THE CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

THE CHURCH. To-morrow, 15th, St. Mary’s Church, 4th street, Philadelphia, will be re-opened for divine service. This place of worship has been adorned and beautified to a high degree. The altar-piece, the paintings on the ceiling, and the pictures of the twelve Apostles on the side walls are magnificent. Indeed we are assured it is one of the most splendid edifices of the kind in the Union. 1 he Rev. Mr. Donncllan of Washington, will preach before and afternoon; and collections will be taken up to defray the expense of the improvements. The talents of the Preacher, the beauty of the building, and the unspeakable importance of the cause will, we are sure, attract an overflowing congregation. We understand the clergy connected with that church have spared no sacrifices and exertions during the progress of the improvements; it now remains with the laity to exhibit their zeal and love by their presence and contributions to-morrow. Hartford, Ct. The Catholics of Hartford have been highly...

Review. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 14 February 1846

Review. The Belfry of Bruges and other poems , by H. W. Longfellow. Owen , Cambridge. The stranger who comes to this country, especially the Irishman, must for a while, be strongly impressed with the idea that he has got among a people of most wonderful enlightenment and education; that is to say, if he believes any reasonable portion of what he hears. On which side soever he turns his eyes, he beholds, like Hannibal, all full of courage. He sees no shrinking diffidence, no unobtrusive modesty, none of that delicate suppression of claims and pretensions in respect of intellect, which he may have been taught to admire among the milk and water geniuses of the old country. Then, if he be an Irishman, he finds his patronymic everywhere accepted as synonymous with ignorance. In the newspaper, in the lecture room, go where he will, the deplorable ignorance, and intellectual degradation of himself, and his countrymen are made the theme of pathetic lamentation, or magnificent sarcasm. When ...
