Congressional. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

Congressional. The following extracts are from Mr. Hanagan’s speech on Oregon, iii the Senate, on the 26th of February:— “In opposition to this claim; England now comes in with the discoveries of Cook. She has for years past, abandoned all pretence of claim, on the ground of the discoveries of Sir Francis Drake. She claims under the discoveries of Cook —the Nootka Sound convention, and the voyage ofVansouver. Cook in his own journal admits that before he sailed from England the account of this last voyage, published by Quadra, had met his eye in London; consequently by his own j testimony the claim under his alleged discovery is not sustained. Well, then, she claims under the Nootka Sound convention. What was its origin? An Englishman named Meares came to Oregon in the year 1789, and erected a hut or two for the purpose of repairing a vessel, or making a temporary stay with the design of trading. The Spaniards made a settlement there in the name of their soverign, claiming the count...

BOSTON REPEAL ASSOCIATION. Continued from our last. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

BOSTON REPEAL ASSOCIATION. Continued from our last. Mr. Tucker, having been repeatedly called for, rose to speak. He remarked, as the President had, upon the slim report of to-night. He feared the Wardens had not done their dnty. The sickness among them, in some degree, accounted for that; but he suspected that, if enquiry had been instituted, other causes might have been discovered. It had long been his opinion, that if Repealers £ot too many irons in the fire, they would heat none of them well. He wished the Friends of Ireland to keep to one thing, to follow the course indicated by their trusted leaders, and not be led away, in fitful and erratic efforts, from the main point of attack (hear). He alluded to the mistake of Mr. O’Connell as noticed by the President, and remarked that, although, for his own part, he would be very happy in expressing his hostility to the British Government, yet the remittances were all forwarded by Mr. James whose legal knowledge, and acumen, he was su...

Correspondence. BOSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

Correspondence. BOSTON. March 3rd, 1846. To the Editor of the Boston Pilot. Sir — 1 cannot permit the letters that have appeared in a few late numbers of your paper to pass without notice, because I firmly believe they are calculated to mislead the friends of Ireland about the state of our unfortunate country. Your readers are aware that the potato disease first created alarm early in October, and a month later, the British government began to take notice of it, and set about providing for the coming famine, by calling Privy Councils; sending commissioners to enquire intothecause, and doing nothing under heaven but filling the people’s minds with horror and alarm, by their apathetic, uncharitable and unholy conduct. This was the state of things in November, and every mail brought news of the increase of the dreadful calamity. Ireland saw herself enslaved by the British government on the one hand; on the other, famine, starvation, pestilence, and death, advancing with rapid strides. ...

The Cambria's News. REPEAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

The Cambria's News. REPEAL ASSOCIATION. The Liberator handed in £2, the subscription of Charles Tottenham, Esq., exJ.P., Notting Hill, Addison-Road, London, which was accompanied with a request to be proposed a member of the Association. Mr. Tottenham was a Protestant gentleman of most respectable family and independent fortune, and had resigned his commission of the peace for the county Wexford, when lie determined on becoming a member of the Association. He thought they should hail most cheerfully the accession to their ranks of a gentleman of station in society and property, and high character. Therefore, he had the honor to move that‘Charles Tottenham, Esq., J.P., be enrolled a member of the Repeal Association (cheers). Mr. John O’Connell seconded the motion, which was carried amid loud acclamation.

COERCION FOR IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

COERCION FOR IRELAND. Unhappy Ireland! Still, as ever the object of pity bat not of pity only. The first words of the speech in which the Sovereign refers to that part of her dominions, are words of accusation, if not of menace? Measures to give increased protection to life, and to bring assassins to justice, could only mean measures of which all men must approve, if it were not the practice of statesmen to veil under phrases of gentleness the repulsive name of coercion. If Ireland were excluded, as in old times from the pale of English law, and were seeking as a "boon the judicial institutions of England, the language of the royal address would be welcomed as worthy the royal li|>s from which it fell. But Ireland is in full possession of the criminal law, under which the rest of the empire enjoys the blessings of order and peace. The ancient and approved methods of protecting life and bringing offenders to justice already exist there as completely as they can Ik; made to...

THE APPROACHES OF SCARCITY. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

THE APPROACHES OF SCARCITY. Wo publish in an adjoining column extracts from several communications forwarded to us by the Mansion-house Committee. We direct public attention to their contents with a melancholy earnestness deepened by the gloomy character of their details. They present a deplorable picture of the country; the parties from whom they emanate must convince us that they also present a true one. From Kilrosseny, in the county Waterford, the Rev. Mr. Power writes that “some of the people will be run out of potato food in February ; but he does not think the scarcity will be general until the end of May.” He aggrevates the frightful picture by assuring us that “one-half the crop is lost for the purposes of human food.” There are two facts apparent from this communication. First, that “a general, scarcity ” is impending over his district. Secondly, that commencing with the month of February it will go on expanding until at the aforenamed period it reaches the frightful exten...

IRISHMEN IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

IRISHMEN IN ENGLAND. We return, as we promised, to this subject. Providence has wisely ordained, as a part of the moral fitness of things, that the fruits of cruelty shall not be mercy, but that from oppression shall spring care and sorrow to the oppressor. If this were not so, tyranny and oppression would be universal. The tendencies of corrupt nature are towards the abuse of power, and the history of the world would exhibit no more or less than a transcript of the history of Ireland, did not experience teach that good government is not alone the truest justice, but the truest wisdom. This truth is strikingly exemplified in the condition of the pauperised Irish in England. The mass of the Irish in that country, despite the blessed Union, area Pariah race—an outcast tribe—and, if you believe an Englishman, form at once the curse, dishonor, and loss of the humbler classes of his countrymen. Not only are the lower Irish in England not identified in any way with the lower English in En...

The Church. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

The Church. IRELAND. Death of the Very Rev. Justin Foley M’Namara. It is with a feeling of the gretest pain that we undertake the tnelancholly ta<k of communicating to the Catholics of Ireland, and to the faithful of this diocess in particular, the dreadful intelliSenee, that the Very Rev. Justin Foley I’Namara—the pious, the good, the noble and great—is no more! He has been taken from those whom he loved and served, whom he edified by his example, and exalted by his teaching. In the full vigor of his manhood he has been cut down by the inexorable hand of death. In the fulness of his splendid intellect, the light that shone so gloriously has been dimmed for ever. He died in Gibraltar on Wednesday, the 31st of last month, of violent inflammation in the bowels. His fatal sickness was of short duration; and amidst its terrible torment, while the weak frame writhed in agony, the mind was calm and Serene, divided between the holy thoughts befitting so awful a moment, and the m...

THE FRENCH NAVY—INVASION! [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

THE FRENCH NAVY—INVASION! We alluded last week to the report published by the French Minister of Marine, in which any reader may find an elaborate and interesting account of the French navy. Its history is traced through the last thirty years, from the time when the crippled marine was restored to the Bourbons, to the present day when it numbers two hundred and forty sail. Besides these the French government will have next year afloat a hundred steamers of war. This fact can’t be told too often; it should be painted up in the Admirality and the Foreign offices; and might be set up as a motto for every newspaper that is printed on our .south coast from Penzance to Margate. A map of the two coast-lines between ay hich the Channel runs might be likewise printed Avith advantage. Brest lies opposite Plymouth, at eight or nine hours’ distance—from Cherbourg to Portsmouth in six hours’ steaming; very bad merchant-boats pass in ten hours between Havre and Brighton, and an excursion from Dun...

THE AUTOCRAT AND THE POPE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

THE AUTOCRAT AND THE POPE. The Cork Examiner gives the foliowing particulars relative to the late visit of the Autocrat at Rome. They are contained in a letter addressed to a distinguished clergyman in the diocese of Cloyne. Although the subject is rather stale, still there is something new in the following: “ The Pope began by saying, that in the natural course of things his life was very near its close, and that the Emperor, too, though a young man, must soon appear before their common judge—and he pointed to a crucifix in the room as he spoke.— The Emperor became agitated, and attempted to kiss his hand; the Pontiff withdrew it, and continued, saying that of the 250,000,000 of which he is the spiritual head, none were so barbarously treated as the portion of them that were in his dominions. On this point the Pontiff <4welt at great length, and produced the statements of a nun who, Avith others of the same community, had been treated in a most barbarous manner during se...

SLAVE STATE MONEY-SLAVE STATE HONORS. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

SLAVE STATE MONEY-SLAVE STATE HONORS. The public are aware that both in Scotland and the north of Ireland much discussion has for some time taken place, on the conduct of the Free Church, in-respect to pecuniary contributions received from the American churches, which countenance slavery as conducted in that country. The abolitionists calling loudly and perseveringlv for the return of what they term the blood-stained money, and the renouncing of all Christian communion with such churches. Now it so happens, that many of the most prominent of those who make these demands, are men who have received from the American Colleges, diplomas of D.D., LL. D., and other honorary badges, and those who take the other side of the question, conceiving that theological honours are a still higher grade of Christian recognition than the reception of money contributions, think that these men who have no other distinctive mark of superior theological attainments than those received from colleges, blood...

Domestic. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

Domestic. The Cambria sailed on Sunday afternoon for Halifax and Liverpool, with for-ty-five passengers, five of whom stop at Halifax, and a large mail. The despatches from the British Minister at Washington and from our own Government, were received by the Long Island Mail, on Saturday evening. There was five passengers and a large mail from the South w hich did not arrive in season, inconsequence of a snow storm, which commenced at New York about noon on Saturday. A Shocking Accident occurred at the Railroad Depot in Oxford. On Thursday day evening, Mr. Reuben Sibley, while attempting to cross the road, the engine came in contact with the sleigh, by which he was thrown upon the rails, the train passing over him and killing him instantly. A couple of Rocky Mountain Wolves escaped from their cage, on the 11th inst., in the menagerie of Herr Driesbach, at Zanesville, Ohio. Three men were present in the building to secure them. They were all badly bitten, but succeeded at last in kill...

Correspandence. PHILADELPHIA, [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

Correspandence. PHILADELPHIA, February 21, 1346, Saint Augustine's Church case defeated — The late Bishop Conwcll's will made null and void—Awful state of Society in Philadelphia — St. John's Orphans' Asylum. \ Dear Donahoe, —Some of our good Protestant friends pretended this morning to be very sorry, at hearing that Grover, the native Cos. Commissioner, went forward, and charged on his oath, before a Magistrate, the trustees, of the late (Saint Augustine’s) Church, with having sworn at their ordination, “to extend the Dominions of the Pope, and to persecute to the last extremity, all Heretics, and schismatics," and that therefore, and for this cause alone, they should never receive any compensation from the county for the damages done them by the mob." This charge, though made on the oath of this native, is wholly contrary to fact, for neither the clergy of Saint Augustine’s Church, nor any of its Right Reverend, or Reverend trustees, nor any Catholic, lay or clerical, in these Uni...

OREGON RAILROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

OREGON RAILROAD. Danielsonville, Ct, Feb. 28, ’46. Dear Donahoe: —l have just perused with much pleasure and profit, Mr. Wilke’s pamphlet on the Oregon Railroad, which you had the goodness to lend me. He points out briefly and clearly with how great facility this road could be constructed in five years hence —the expense of its construction —its profits—its advantages, and its essentially necessary importance. By its means, the passage could be made to China from Boston in fifty days. The ladies of Boston could be able to take an excursion to Canton every summer, whilst the Chinese ladies would of course return the compliment. This friendly intercourse would aid in converting the heathen —promote the commerce of America one hundred per cent—and render this country, and her people, what natare designed them to be, namely —“the greatest |>eoi>le on the face of the globe.” Yours, C,

MASSACHUSETTS IN THE ASCENDANT. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

MASSACHUSETTS IN THE ASCENDANT. THE PILOT. _ SATURDAY, MARCH 7,18 AC. The slur which guides the councils of our State> shines with a blue light. In its present conjunction, it is not the star of Freedom, but of that contemptible and vicious tyranny, by which the wallsided lugger of Puritanism has shaped her course in every sea. And according to its aspect, and the nature of its influences, is the veneration with which it is regarded by the dwellers on terra firma. We heard a rhymester once apostrophizing England in his metrical way ; and part of what he said (sung we mean) might express the general esteem in which the Old Bay State under her present legislation, is held : •• All the shadows are thrown o’er thee that to this low earth belon?, And the blue of thy glory giveth sign of something wrong.” It is quite fashionable in this part of the world to talk about “ treating Massachusetts with respectand the question “ how stands Old Massachusetts” is considered of so much ...

PUNCH, AND ANTICHRIST, AND THE EDITORS OF THE CHRISTIAN ALLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

PUNCH, AND ANTICHRIST, AND THE EDITORS OF THE CHRISTIAN ALLIANCE. The ..Christian Alliance has undertaken to prove that “ the Romish Church is Antichrist,” that the Papacy is the “ little horn,” and the Pope “ the Man of Sin,” and so forth. Now, we have a word or two, on this subject to submit to the conductors of that paper, before they go any further; for it is well for people to look before them, and see whet they have undertaken, before they attempt to perform. It is declared that the Man of Sin “ sitteth in the Temple of God.” The Alliance says, this Man of Sin is the Pope; but where does he sit? In the Church of Rome. Now we want the Alliance to tell us at once, and explicitly; is the Church of Rome the Temple of God, or not ? If it is, let him stop his preaching, if not, let him explain this part of Scripture. As the Alliance is undertaking a very important work, we are sure all the assistance that can be afforded them they will, ought at least, gratefully to accept. This sub...

RUSSIAN PERSECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 7 March 1846

RUSSIAN PERSECUTION. We commence on our first page, the narrative of the Nero-like persecution of the Nuns of Minsk, in Poland. The Univers, French paper, thus alludes to the narrative:— " In order to find any thing of a like kind it is necessary to go back to the acts of the martyrs, and read over once again all the bloody annals of three centuries of persecution. And still, even therein a,re rarely to be found torturers so dastardly and so skilled in prolonging the sufferings of their victims. Let us add that these details innumerable, precise and even minute, exclude for ever henceforward the possibility of a doubt, and that there exist no means save one,a counter inquiry made under all the formalities of justice and of publicity, can at all enfeeble the fearful authority of this document. The Deity has permitted that four of these holy women, the only ones out of five and thirty who, after seven years of martytdom, were able to walk, should have an opportunity of effecting their...
