Important Temperance Article. Prohibition in Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 15 February 1873

Important Temperance Article. Prohibition in Ireland. Hie following article, bv James Alexander Mowatt, is of great interest to all •lasses as well as to temperance men. We •lip it from the Vindicator .- Tlio correspondent of the Mew York Evenin'; Post, writing from Vineland, >\ J.. on Jfov. 7, stated, that in tlie entire district of Vineland lie does not think there arc throe confirmed inebriates in a population of 10. 000. This he attributes, very properly, to tlie fact that the drink traffic'is wholly prohibited iuYineland. One fact like th.s is worth ten thousand theories put forward bv writers in the Liquor Men’s Advocate, tlio Mew York Herald, or any other organ that «ndeavors to sneer at prohibition. My object shall be to prove, in a series of articles in the Vindicator, that the prohibition oftlio liquor traffic just produces the tamo results everywhere else, where it has been fried, ns it has done in \ ineland.

The Miners of California. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 15 February 1873

The Miners of California. Mark Twain proves the excellence of hihumor by the simplicity of las pathos. Where one is found, the other is present. True humor and true pathos arc invariably components of the same heart; for they come straight from the heart, and not from the head, like the general run of “wit” or sentimentality. In the following sketch from Mark Twain’s “Boughing It,” there are quartz specimens of the true metal The wild barbaric life of the primitive California miner is embalmed iu the author’s undiluted descriptions. “ They were rough in those times! They fairly reveled in gold, whiskey, fights, fandangoes, and were unspeakably happy. The honest miner raked irom a hundred to a thousand dollars out of liis claim a day, and what, with the gambling dens and the other entertainments, he hadn’t a cent the next morning, it he had any sort of luck. They cooked their own bacon and beans, sewed on their own buttons, washed their own shirts—blue woolen ones; and if a man wante...

Dr. Young’s Report on Immigration. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 15 February 1873

Dr. Young’s Report on Immigration. Dr. Young’s report on immigration, which might very fittingly he entitled an official hand-book for immigrants, is attracting considerable attention in Europe. This is sufficiently evident from the notices thereof which 'appear in European journals. The Irish Times of January 8 devotes to the book and the subjects suggested by it, a leading editorial, in which it refers at some length to Dr. Young’s calculations on the money value of the immigrant, concluding as follows: “ Thus, the poor Irish peasant who lands upon the shore of the United States, is not considered to be a worthless wait or stray cast up by the tide, but a valuable instrument for increasing the na tional wealth. Tb© view taken by American statesmen is novel, but it is philosophical, and certainly Christian. Let the emigrant be poor and desponding still, *A man’s a man lor a’ that.’ and with steadiness. sobriety and a reasonable amount of industry, while increasing the wealth of the...

Crime in Catholic Cities. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 15 February 1873

Crime in Catholic Cities. The Montreal Gazette says of one of the most decidedly Catholic cities on this continent: Montreal is a great centre of population. It is inhabited by people of diverse origins and creeds. 'Yet during the entire year 1872, there was but one indictment for murder before our courts. Wc pause over tlie encouraging lact. But one charge of taking life, the gravest offence known to the law. This, moreover, within a day’s journey of the great metropolis south of us, whose journals teem day after day with tales of crimes of the most revolting and horrible character. Then, again. Moi treal is a great mart of commerce, with multitudes of .voung clerks and employees exposed hourly to strong temptations; with hundreds anil thousands of officials of every class holding places more or less involving trust and confidence. Yet charges of embezzlement before tlie highest criminal court there were but eight. Belore tlie General Sessions but four. The cases of larceny are mor...

Irish-Americanism in St. Louis. The Great Mullanphy Charity. The Home for Destitute Emigrants. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 15 February 1873

Irish-Americanism in St. Louis. The Great Mullanphy Charity. The Home for Destitute Emigrants. We take tho following interesting account of this great and beneficial institution, the gilt of Bryan Mullnnphy, from the Missouri ltcpublican (St. Louis) It is not out of season, when so much is said of destitution here and elsewhere, to speak of wliat the Mullanphy commissioners are doing, have done, and expect to do. “Carrying out faithiully the commission of Bryan Mullanphy,” might be answer enough to the former reference, but the operations of a beneficent institution founded on generosity, and remaining the embodiment of the same, are invested with sufficient interest te accord them a notice less cursory. Two objects may be gained by supplying such Information: a correct knowledge oi tlie institution will be extended—there is still some dimness concerning it— and numbers ot its lriends will give anew lease in their good opinion.

Catholic Schools in Savannah, Ga. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 15 February 1873

Catholic Schools in Savannah, Ga. I The City of Savannah, Georgia, is, so far ; as we know, the only one wherein Catholics receive pay for conducting schools lor Catholic children in accordance with those Christian principles which ought to lie at the foundation oi all institutions. We hear a great deal from unthinking people concerning the harm that is to come to the cause of popular education, from allowing Catholic schoolsto participate in the school fund. The Superintendent of the Savannah i’ublic Schools, Mr. W. 11. Baker, lias lately published his annual report lor 1872, in which is found the following notable paragraph The system by which the Catholic schools were placed under the supervision and charge of the Board, has proved most satisfactory to all concerned, and has not been jarred by the Ugliest discord. This is highly satisfactory* information, says our worthy contemporary, the Morning Star, of ,\cw Orleans, and is well worthy of being pondered. In the first place it w...

The Burned District of Boston. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 15 February 1873

The Burned District of Boston. The fire is burning still under many a pile of ruins, although three cold months have passed since it was lighted. The aspect of the burnt district is dismally dreary. At first sight the waste is little changed since the week after the Are: but a closer inspection shows this to be wrong. Most of the basements have been cleared out, the iron sorted and weighed and carted oil", all but the massive pillars; and a forest oi monster derricks, like masts, stands up in the ruins. The snow covers all; and here and there a column of white smoke or steam rises from a tumbled pile, telling that someone has left the ruin oi his wealth and hopes just as it fell on that terrible 9th of November. A great many wooden shanties have been run up, not for business, but just to cover the brick and iron. The leather dealers j have erected a neat row of wooden build- | ings for their temporary trade; and they I seem to be the only merchants who have j made any united action....

Russia in Central Asia. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 15 February 1873

Russia in Central Asia. The Russian pretext tor invading Khiva is similar to that of England for invading Abyssinia—namely, the release of prisoners. The London Turns alTects to believe that no permanent occupation is meant by Russia. The temper of the English Government is still unruffled; though the spirit of the country, strengthened by the settlement of the Alabama question, is decidedly averse to bearing any affronts from Russia. It may be, and it is likely that the whole affair will pass off with only the result of a few liliivans and Russians the less; but should it be otherwise it is important that the Irish people should understand the situation. Ireland wants Home Rule; that ! is, a union with England similar to that of Canada and Australia, or ns closely as possible resembling the union of the American States with the national Government. In time of peace and strength England will take a longtime to grant this, though she is wilfully blind to her own interest in deferring...

Opening Public Libraries on Sunday. To HIS HONOR THE MOYOR AND COMMON COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BOSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 15 February 1873

Opening Public Libraries on Sunday. To HIS HONOR THE MOYOR AND COMMON COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BOSTON. I The undersigned, inhabitants of the City ! of Boston, respectfully remonstrate against the opening, on Sunday, of any portion of the Public Library of Boston, for the following reasons: It is a violation of the civil laws and moral principles that have | always distinguished the people of New I England, and will have its influence on the whole Republic. That it is an innovation of very doubtful promise, and would be a precedent established by an act of civil government, that may afford powerful arguments for greater encroachments on the Sabbath as a day of rest, and we believe, ; finally, that it is fraught with peril to the ; best interests and welfare of that very j class of our community in whose behalf | this change is more especially urged, namely, the overworked and ‘overburdened class, and will lower the standard of Boston, and tarnish her high character ] as a city. !

Dr. Brownson on Woman’s Rights. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 15 February 1873

Dr. Brownson on Woman’s Rights. V.'e Lave from time to time, in The Pilot, commented on the pernicious female organization, or idea, or movement, existing in our midst, known as the “Woman’s ■ Lights Party.” We have regretted to see I’ women so weak as to attempt to rush in where they should not bo, and men so unmanly as to flatter this female vanity, or, for selfish purposes, pander to if s absurd self-assertion. We are glad that Dr. Brownson , in the first number of the ‘ ‘ last series ” of his Review, has treated the subject in his own powerful manner, and we recommend all our friends, men and women, to read his words with attention. In concluding f,u article on certain novels written by women, Dr. Brownson says;— If we have seemed to speak disparagingly of woman as a writer oi fiction and creator ! of popular literature, it is not of Christian woman, far less of womanhood. We are old, with old-world notions on most .subjects, which this age regards as ridiculous and absurd. We w...

The French Academy. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 15 February 1873

The French Academy. The highest honor to literature and j worth that France has to bestow is a chair in the French Academy. The fact that a writer belongs to the French Academy gives his works a stamp of excellence such as probably no other body in the world bestows. Among the most illustrious writers who have filled a chair In this assembly, in our .days, Mgr. Dupanloup. the Bishop of Orleans, held no insignificant place. At the beginning of the year 1872, Paris, and France, and other lands where his name is known, were startled to hear that the Bishop ol Orleans had resigned his chair in the French Academy, because M. Littre was proposed as a candidate to a vacant chair in that learned body. The Bishop’s objections arose from the fact that M. I.ittre’s teaching was immoral and impious. The latter has achieved a reputation of a high order in many branches of science and literature. lie began his career with the study of medicine, and, aiter having “walked the hospitals,” set that s...

These chorals were performed last season at the Crystal Palace, London, under the direction of Gounod himself, and gave the highest satisfaction to an immense audience, among whom was Prof. Goo. E.
