BOSTON REPEAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 28 February 1846
BOSTON REPEAL ASSOCIATION. The Association held its regular monthly meetiug on Monday evening, in the Washingtonian Hall, Tremont street. The Secretary read the.minutes of last meeting. After the appointment of Hall Wardens, and the return of the usual reports from the Wardens of the city, the President rose to address the meeting. Mr. James —regretted the very slim report which had been made It appeared that most of the Wardens had been sick, and in consequence, Repeal was sick also. However, he hoped that none of the parties would die. He must say, little was being done for the cause, at this time; although perhaps a great deal was not expected. He observed that in. Dublin they had not been doing very much of late. There was no special call, nor critical juncture to excite the energies of the people. The cause was in existence in Boston, nevertheless, but in the surrounding towns it gave no evidence of life. It used to be the practice of our members to go round among those towns, ...

The Cambria’s News. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 28 February 1846
The Cambria’s News. SUMMARY.. Persia— awful Calamity. A great accident, attended with frightful consequences, occurred at Shiraz, one hundred and fifty persons being killed by a gunpowder explosion, besides double that amount wounded and disfigured. It occurred as follows:— Twenty-four mules, each carrying over 2501bs. of powder, and were bringing it to a magazine, when a spark flew from a torge in the neighbourhood, which somehow communicated with the powder. The explosion may be well imagined to be fearful, every person in the neighbourhood drivers, mules and all, being blown up. 1 he increase in the price of Irish pork’ in the English market sinra 1842, is stated to be 15s. per cwt. in the race of the American imports. The Emperor of Russia at Venice. V enice, Dec. 31. The Emperor of Russia arrived in this city the day before yesterday at a moment when he was not expected. His approach was carefully con cealed by the police, who even spread a report that his Imperial Majesty woul...

NOTICES OF BOOKS. Sadlier’s illustrated edition of Butler’s Lives of the Saints, has reached the second volume. The last part concludes the life of Polycarp. It likewise includes, among other illustrious names the Golden Doctor, Chrysostom, also St. Cyril of Alexandria, Charlemange, Francis De Sales, Peter Nolasco and Ignatius of Antioch. It contains a well executed engraving, and continues to fulfil the high promises of the publisher. A letter to the so called “Boston Churches,” which are in truth only parts of one church. By a member of the same. This pamphlet reminds us of Sismondi’s and Byron’s observation on Don Quixote —“of all books, tis the saddest.” Some sincere and simple minded lover of religion, grieved and wearied with the contests of professing Christians, and the variations of Churches, reproves them, in this pamphlet, as strongly as his gentle nature seems to have permitted. It brings up vividly and sadly, to our imagination how many gentle minds there ure flying lik...
Irish parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 28 February 1846
Irish parliament. Mr. O’Connell delivered the following speech prior to his departure for London, at the meeting of the Repeal Association on the 26th of January : The Liberator —l shall now address a few observations to the meeting, as 1 am in a hurry to go over to England (hear, hear). I wish again to call the attention of the association for a moment, to an explanation from myself respecting another borough—that of Dundalk (hear hear). My fourth son, and namesake, has been invited by a majority of the electors to stand as a candidate for that borough whenever a vacancy arises (hear, hear). I wish to inform the electors of Dundalk from this spot, that my son is on the continent at present, but that he will soon be at home, and of course will wait upon them, and canvass the electors of every class, upon his arrival (hear, hear). 1 would have done so myself, if 1 was not pressed by my approaching journey to England and the five days’ wrangle that I had in the corporation (laughter)....
CORN LAW REPEAL AND IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 28 February 1846
CORN LAW REPEAL AND IRELAND. And how happens it that simple justice to England must operate injuriously to Ireland? Simply, because this country has been kept in a forced and unnatural condition by the commercial jealousy of her powerful neighbor and enemy—and by the detestable and thrice-damned Union; because manufactures here are next to impossible without the stimulating presence of that capital which is yearly drawn from us to support the trade of another country; because we have been confined to the English market both to sell and to buy in; because the whole policy of the Union was to make, and keep Ireland a store farm instead of a Nation. As to the effects of the Minister’s project upon the approaching season of famine in Ireland—for the famine is approaching rapidly—they will be simply nothing. To open the ports Ip foreign corn, when the Irish peasantry have no money to buv the corn which has been grown abundantly on their own soil—when they see it bursting the storehouses ...

THE PROSPECT OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 28 February 1846
THE PROSPECT OF WAR. We think it no vanity to say that we know more about British politics than the generality of American papers; for we have better opportunities. Long ago, we could have said as much of British designs as the American ambassador has transmitted to his government after special enquiry. We know that peace is more probable than war; but we also know that with England, if it does come, will be of a character which the people of this country do not expect, and such as this country never experienced before. Still more, we are sorry to see that base and treacherous politicians are laboring with industry, to deepen, and make inveterate the popular mistakes, and prejudices on that subject. On one hand, are a countless swarm of contemptible prints whose sole and simple object is circulatiop: they deal in the vilest boasting and gasconade, grossly mistating the power of England, protesting that she dare not fight, or that, if she dares, she has only to say the word in order ...
MOVEMENTS OF BRITISH PARTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 28 February 1846
MOVEMENTS OF BRITISH PARTIES. We posssess means of understanding the movements of British parties, and of foreseeing their results which it would not be always convenient, or even prudent to explain. All our correspondents do not write with a view to publication. We enjoy the intimacies and communion of friendship with some who, from position as well as character, possess the confidence of large parties and important leaders in Britain; we venture to assure our readers that we can explain the purposes, and interpret the movements of parties in England as well as if we were ourselves in that country, and behind the political scenes, watching those wires and ropes, that move the Arbiter of Nations. On the 17th of January, this paper announced that the junction of Russell and the Leaguers was a peace movement, and that we should hear no more word about war from the Whigs. We said—“ The most important news to be expected is about the opening of the ports ; ” and, having described the po...
COERCION IN IRELAND-STATE PROSECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 28 February 1846
COERCION IN IRELAND-STATE PROSECUTION. The British Government have resolved, once more, to try the strong arm in Ireland ; and they have commenced by prosecuting the Nation. They take that paper as the representative of the Irish people ; and they expect, by obtaining a conviction against it of having expressed, or implied, purposes dangerous to the peace of the Empire, to create a plea and a prejudice, that will support them in conducting a reign of terror. Their last signal failure does not promise highly for their present attempt. They may convict the paper, indeed, but they will scarcely involve the country. It is unfortunate for their scheme, that they have been lately attempting to divide the Repealers. The result of that precious policy is, that the Nation, just now, instead of being the undisputed organ of the party, is engaged in a pretty hot competition with an opposing paper. Thus one evil neutralizes another. Besides, the adoption of those two opposite courses so close u...
LECTURE IN THE MASONIC TEMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 28 February 1846
LECTURE IN THE MASONIC TEMPLE. The Lecture to the Y. C. F. Society, was delivered on the 18th, by Dr. H. B. C. Greene. The Lecturer commenced by saying, that, having so often appeared in a similar capacity before the present audience, he had been at some loss to find a subject bn this occasion. After some reflection, he had chosen “ The Nature of Man,” considering that subject in its physical department, and in comparison with the lower orders of animated nature; namely, the brute creation. He divided the human race into four classes, or, general tribes; the European, the Asiatic, the American, and the African. This division, though not strictly correct, was sufficient for his purpose. He then proceeded to describe the differences presented by human nature, from the highest physical, and intellectual organization in the European race, to the lowest in the Hottentot. So low does the nature of the rational animal sink, and so imperceptible are the gradations by which it meets the irra...
ALLEDGED IMPOSITIONS ON EMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 28 February 1846
ALLEDGED IMPOSITIONS ON EMIGRANTS. We have received a letter from Messrs. Tapscott about the representations of their conduct which appeared in the New York papers, and which we noticed in our last. Concerning those representations, they say—“ The whole is a base fabrication, and you, together with the public generally, shall be put in possession of all the facts of the case, as soon as our enemies have said all they have to say on the subject. We are prepared to disprove by affidavits all that has appeared against us.” It will be remembered that in describing the state of the controversy we remarked upon the whole “the weight of evidence seems to go against the Tapscotts.” The letter is meant to remove that impression; and we notice it, that our readers may suspend their judgment until the evidence on both sides has fully appeared. Curious Mistake. At a meeting for Christian Union in Brooklyn, New York, last month, the Rev. Mr. Hodge, gave as the Detroit Evangelical Observer says, ...
“GONE TO ROME.” [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 28 February 1846
“GONE TO ROME.” The Cambria bring* us further intelligence of the advances to Rome, among the flower of the English Church. The following are particulars:— Mr. Simpson, of St, John’s College, Oxford, has, we understand, been received into the Roman Catholic Church.—Morning Post. Mr. Henry Mills, of Trinity College, Cambridge, has been received into the Catholic Church at St. Chad’s Cathedral, Birmingham. Mr. Mills is son to a late Fellow of Trinity, and is related to Dr. Chapman, the present head of Caius College.— Morning Post. The Rev. Spencer Northcote, M.A., late scholar of Corpus Christi College, has been received into the Roman Catholic church at Prior Park. Mr. Northcote obtained the highest classical honours at Oxford.— Morning Post. Progress of Puseyism. We hear that the Rev. Mr. Hocking, of Endellion, has recently had the princes of Laherne and Trelawny on a visit at the rectory house, and he gives fair promise of very soon joining the Roman Catholic church. He says public...
DIOCESS OF MASSACHUSETTS. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 28 February 1846
DIOCESS OF MASSACHUSETTS. Augusta and Gardiner, Me. The Catholics of Augusta have purchased, for the sum of $5OO, a lot of land 100 feet square and situate on State street. In consequence of its central and elevated position, the beauty of the surrounding vicinity and the extensive view which it commands, along the waters and banks of the Kennebec, no site could have been more eligible or commodious for the erection of a Catholic church. It is contemplated to commence anew Catholic church upon the said land early in May. The Catholics of Gardiner we understand have had the liberal offer from Gardiner, Esq. of that place, to select for themselves, free of all expense, a lot of land on his estate for the erection of a Catholic Church. This speaks well for the growing liberality of the State of Maine
ENGLAND IN 1346. From our Foreign Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 28 February 1846
ENGLAND IN 1346. From our Foreign Correspondent. London* February 2d, 1846. The following introductory remarks to the letter of Mr&gt; M’Gee, published in our last, was unavoidably crowded out. GENERAL remarks. Twenty-four hours journey transfers one in these days from Dublin to London. Formerly men used to set their houses in order and make their last testaments before setting out on the same expedition, which is now diminished to a day’s work, by the agency of machinery. Ten days observation and leisure have enabled me to see something of London. I confess, I was disappointed, in the capital of the British Empire. It falls infinitely below my estimate of a great city. It presents a large collection of brick piles—but these you might see in any brick yard. It has three or four fine level parks, very badly planted, with scarce a tree of the age of maturity. Its squares are sprinkled with a number of metal men, scenes of kings that were, mounted on metal horses. But great met...
