Convent of Mercy Bazaar. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 November 1895
Convent of Mercy Bazaar. After eight days of uninterrupted success, the bazaar in aid of the Convent of Mercy closed at a late hour on last Monday night, when the art union for 25 valuable prizes was drawn in the presence of an immense audience. Dr. James Kearney, Mr. J. Garland and Mr. J. Dellow, assisted by the secretaries, conducted the drawing. The prizes have gone to Queens land, New Zealand, and all over this colony. Father T. O'Reilly announced that the gross takings had been £500, which meant some £4*00 net, and on behalf of the Sis.ters of Mercy he thanked the public of all denomina tions for their patronage, the ladies who had worked bo hard to secure such a magnificent result, and the indefatigable secretaries, Cap tain W. J. Fern's and Mr. W. 'Watters, to whose untiring efforts the success was due.
Religious Education. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 November 1895
Religious Education. Sir Theodore Hope, in a recent letter to The Times, has put forward a strong plea for justice to denominationalists : — No less do we require a new departure, on a now principle, consistently and generally ap plied, in place of the twofold compromises of in--./-\ 1'! 1 ? 1 1 11 J.&/U wnien nave uecomo an unworrcaoie ana chronism. Heal equality and real freedom , demand that all children shall be taught the religion (or no religion) which their parents desire, that its religious teaching shall be no bar to any school receiving its full share of public moneys, and that dissentients shall bo provided for in any school, unless adequate facilities for the teaching they desire exist elsewhere in the locality. This is, substantially, the principle on which the present Government have taken their stand, -and which the country is prepared for their carrying out. How can this principle be applied ? To begin with, school boards must recognise that they are, only on...
CATHOLIC. The Progress of Catholicism. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 November 1895
CATHOLIC. Tho Progress of Catholicism. We quote tho following from The lie view, a Catholic weekly paper published at. Chicago : — ' A. fair idea of the state of the Catholic Church all over the world is obtained from a book treating of tho progress of Catholicism during the present century, published lately hy Mgr. Loubet, ?♦ Prencti missionary. The statistics in tho volume tell tho story of the advance of the true Church. In 1.S50 thero were scarcely 3,25S,440 Catholics in nil tho Protestant European countries ; there were 8,000,000 in Ireland, 6,000.000 in Germany, 6,500,000 in Poland, and 350,000 in Switzer land. In Turkey in Europe, Mgr.Loubot tells us that thero wore only 250,000 Catholics. . There were 381,000 in Asiatic Turkey, 4-75,000 in the Indian Vicariato, 310,000 in Indo-Ohina, 6,000 in Corea, 61,000 in the United Slates, 120,000 in Canada, 105,000 in tho West In dies, 38,000 in Texas and California, 30,000 in South America, and 17,000,000 in Spain.

NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 November 1895
NOTES AND COMMENTS. There is a marked tendency in literature at present on the part of erratic agnosticism to use the sacred Scriptures as merely human works, to afford material for romances and novels. When these people used their little minds and immense venom and malice in assailing the Sacred Record, every friend of Religion understood their motives, and was under little danger of becoming the dupe of their hysterical theorising. lhey have adopted different tactics lately, and have taken to pourtraying, in glowing colours, eliminating all element of the divine and sacred, the character of our Redeemer, and forcing the Apostles to bend to the exigencies of sentimental fiction. Some of these works are, unfortunately, widely read, and are calculated to work serious mischief in the minds of the young and inexperienced. Maria Corelli's atrocious production, ' Barabbas,' is an illustration of what we mean. Her writings generally are the sickly offspring of a diseased mind, and heavily...
GALLERY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 November 1895
GALLERY NOTES. . ? -? ? In the Council on Tuesday, the Vice-President, in answer to Mr. Trick ett, said that as the Government did not intend to levy a Land Tax without exemptions, and an Income Tax with an exemption of only £160, it would be idle to speculate as to what revenue would be received under these conditions. The G-overnment business on the paper was postponed, and only matters of minor importance were dealt with. The second reading of the Goulburn to Crook well Railway Bill was considered, but members appeared to have a dead set on it, chiefly on account of its estimated cost. Mr. Dan gar said the Assembly appeared anxious to spend as much money as possible, and members seemed to be agreed that the whole affair would be a fiasco, so they cheerfully knocked the proposal on the head by 25 to 6. The inevitable Dean case again bobbed up serenely in the Assembly on Tuesday night, Mr. O'Sullivan being anxious to know if the Government approved of the action of the Attorney -Ge...
DEATH OF M. PASTEUR. SCIENCE AND RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 November 1895
DEATH OF M. PASTEUR. SCIENCE AND RELIGION. The death of M. Pasteur is a remarkable triumph for Catholicity. The famous scien tist, by the fervent piety of his last moments, proved to be utterly groundless the charge that religion and science are at variance the one with the other. Throughout his life he was a thoroughly practical Catholic, and when he found that death was approaching he sent for a Dominican priest and received from him the last rites of the Church. It was no doubt an impressive scene : the great physician, with the humble faith of a simple peasant, surrounded by his family, who re peated the prayers for the dying while they watched the final struggle of one of the most distinguished men in Europe. If science has suffered religion has bene fited by his death. It is a happiness to be able to combine these two words when speak ing of a man who loved truth in all its forms, and, knowing it to be one and indivisible, understood that the teachings of true science can neve...

AMERICA. The Evils of Drink.—Powerful Sermon by Archbishop Ryan. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 November 1895
AMERICA. ? ? ? ^ ? - — The Evils of Drink.— Power! ul Sermon by Archbishop Ryan. 1 he twenty-fifth annual convention of the Catholic Total Abstinence Union of America, held in New York, was a splendid success. So effectually are the great American prelates carrying on the crusade against drink, that, in the diocese of St. Paul's not a single Catholic conducts a saloon. What a change from the time when ' Rum and Romanism ' were wont to be linked f dp- p. f- her by the enemies of the Church in America ! The following thrilling address was delivered on the occasion by America's greatest orator, Archbishop Ryan. He took for his text the beautiful words of the 99th Psalm, com mencing 'Jubilate .Deo,' and said: On no more appropriate occasion could this psalm of jubilee be chanted than on the present. We rejoice in God and bless Him, we come into His gate with praise, into His court with hymns, because, after twenty-five years of conflict with the demon of intemperance at the head of his ...

Concert at Gulgong. G-ULapNG, Tuesday. — The annual entertain-' raent of the Convent School, Gulgong, took place in the Prince of Wales Theatre, Gul gong, and passed off vary successfully. The lirst part of the programme consisted of .the operetta, ' The YVhite Grarland,' and the talented children did full justice to the bright little composition. The production was well supported by a full chorus, and with rnaffuesiuin and limelight effects. In the second part some songs, recitations, etc., were rendered, the con tributors amongst others being Master M. Doyle, who sang ' Tommy Atkins ' and ' Old Black Snow ' ; Misses Mahoney and McCul loch, 'Love at Home'; and Miss Josephine Young, ' Alabama Coon.' The junior class, who had been carefully trained, rendered 'The Japanese Pan ' very gracefully. A. comedy, 'Always in Mischief,' concluded a very suc cessful concert, both artistically and financially.

BERTHA; OR, THE POPE AND THE EMPEROR . ,...„ ,. „_ ,a ? „ AN HISTORICAL TALE. BY WILLIAM BERNARD MACCABE. CHAPTER I.— Continued. UI pray your pardon, my lord,' said Agatha, here stepping between the youthful pair, ' I am the attendant — or, as she in her goodness calls me, the friend — of the Lady Beatrice. From her I never heard your name before. Neither has her mother ever spoken of you to me. The language you have now ad dressed to the Lady Beatrice should not be spoken to her, but with the permission of her parents. I cannot invite you to their castle ; but you know yourself if you would be wel come there. If you would, it is there and not in this wild wood you should see the Lady Beatrice; if you would not, then the words you could not speak to her there you should not give utterance to her here, where there are none to protect her but an aged attendant like myself and a few armed serfs that wait for us in the adjoining valley.' These words were apparently addressed by Agatha t...
Love and Beauty. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 November 1895
%otit mxh lUantg, [Written fob ' The Catholic Press/'] Without love, beauty were not beauty ; fiends Would find no charm in fairest landscape, nor A fount of gladness in a face divine, Lit with the soul's still radiance. Melodies Sweeter than aught save holiest silence ne'er Could, in the heart accursed, unlit by love, wake rapture. Tis the eye that on the scene Sheds glory, the heart's ear that lends the song Half its wild beauty. Thus an anguished soul, Too deeply grieved to care for sounds of joy, Will spurn sweet music with a sense of pain ; And unto him whose hopes have sapless grown A scene of splendour adds new misery. But not the heart's woe, born of earthly loss, Bobs beauty of its essence. Sin alone, Murderous adder, the soul's enemy, Bemires the lucent spirit's comeliness, And shuts out sweetness with a wall of death ; Plucks from that nest, the human heart, warm love, And keeps a chill and clammy viper there. Whoso would still commune with loveliness Must make her heart ...
ROME. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 November 1895
ROME. The Vicar Apostolic of the Copts, Cyril Macarius, had recently an audience of the Holy Father. He was accompanied by the two sons of His Excellency Signor B'ey Galli, one of the deputation sent to thank the Pope for the Apostolic Letter that he some time ago addressed to the Copts. The Italian papers have had the oppor tunity of bringing the London Times to task for the inaccuracy of its reports, it stated that Signor Crispi was accorded an en thusiastic reception at the unveiling of Cavour's statue, after his senseless abuse of the Vatican. The fact was that Crispi was not present at the ceremony. The British Embassy at Rome has re ceived censure from the Catholic journals and political associations of Europe for its gratuitous insult to the Pope in participating in the 20th of September' celebrations, The Vatican Library was, in the presence of a large gathering of scientific and literary celebrities, formally re-opened on Tuesday,, the 1st of October last. A large number, o...

The emi grants were nearly all Catholics, and Ireland will be the poorer for their loss.

GENERAL NEWS [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 16 November 1895
GENERAL NEWS ? .*. ? In view of! the collapse of Theosophy and Spookdom in Sydney, the following letter of Mr. Herbert Burrows to an English contem porary will be interesting to our readers : — Sib, — During the past few years I have publicly advocated Theosophy in connection with the Theosophical Society. Will you allow me to say publicly through your columns that I have felt; compelled to resign my member shin of that body ? The recent disclosures of fraud which have split the society led me to further investiga tions, impossible before, which have thoroughly convinced me that for years deception in the society has been rampant— deception to which Madame Blavatsky was sometimes a party. Both Colonel Olcott, the president of the society, and Mr. Sinnett, the vice-president, believe her to have been partially fraudulent. To the charges of fraud brought by Mrs. Besant against Mr. Judge, the late vice-president, may be added accusations of grave immorality against Colonel Olcott, laid...
