THE HEROES OF ERIN. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 9 May 1846

THE HEROES OF ERIN. W. L. Freemen, say freemen, shall Erin remain, Trampled by tyrants, in bondage and chain, The grave of her Emmet, the brave and the free, — Procluded, and silent, shall it ever he. When war, and foul tyranny threatened us all, Green Erin came first, to Columbia's call, From that Isle in the ocean, brave heroes arose— To comfue r, and fight for a native repose. They said, they’d find freedom; or else find a grave, And shouted “Hurrah for the homes of the brave,” They ssid and they did, for they stood by their word, With the Black thorn shillelah, the musket and sword. Ah! noble indeed, was the friendship they gave. To punish a tyrant, —a uniou to save, With Columbia’s yeomen,they fought side by side, And together with them, they so gallantly died. Now, American freemen, will none of you stand, And assist in defence of that beautiful land: The brave and true freeman, I hear them all cry—- “ For Ireland’s freedom, we’ll conquer or die.” Or will you look coldly—and w...

A Little of Every Thing, [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 9 May 1846

A Little of Every Thing, If a tallow candle be placed in and fired at a board one inch in thickness, it will go through without melting or sustaining the slightest injury, and if a inusket ball be fired, into the water it will not rebound, but be flattened the same as if fired against a solid substance. A musket ball may be fired through a pane of glass, making a hole the size of the ball without cracking the glass: and if the glass be suspended by a thread it will make no difference and the thread will not even vibrate. Camp Meeting Anecdote. The following is going the rounds of the papers, said to have actually occurred in the Southwest part of Arkansas. A preacher was holding forth, and had contrived so to work upon the feelings of his auditors, that the straw on the ground inside of the altar was completely covered with mourners. Perceiving that there were many others present who were ready to cast themselves down, who refrained from so doing solely through a lack of straw to li...

HOUSE OF COMMONS. April 6. COERCION ( IRELAND) BILL. On the order of the day for the resumption of the adjourned debate, Mr. Smith O’Brien said he wished that no misunderstanding might arise as to the course which the Irish members intended to take, and which he thought they ought to take. On the discussion of the coercion bill they intended to go fully into the question of the misgovermnent, and of stating the grievances of Ireland, and the remedies which they thought ought to be adopted, and they would take advantage of every opportunity of contesting the measures brought forward by the government (hear). Sir R. Peel —After the bill had been read a first time the honorable gentleman (Mr. O’Brien) would have plenty of opportunities in the subsequent stages of the bill of entering into all the details he might wish. He (Sir Peel) hoped that the house would now proceed to the business before it. Mr. John O’Connell said the Irish members in that house thought the government had made a...

PRIESTLY INTERFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 9 May 1846

PRIESTLY INTERFERENCE. THE FILDT. SATURDAY, MAY 9, 1816. There is always some terrible tale going the round of the No-Popery papers, about the power of the Priests, and their undue interference with the private concerns of their people. The Christian Alliances and Protestant Telegraphs, and that tomtit which calls itself “The American Eagle,” have still something of the sort in type. One time some Rev. contributor had a servant girl whom he wished to proselytize, but couldn’t do it for the Priest—the girl went, and asked the Priest if she and her brother might turn Protestants, and he said no; so she wouldn’t—and straightway the Rev. proselytizer, finding that he is not so important and influential -a gentleman as he thought he was, takes to the newspapers, and complains to the public about it. Another time there is some foul-mouthed attack on the confessional, or on some other of the relations between the Pastor and his flock; the meaning and sense of the whole being, that the Cath...

MASSACHUSETTS LEGISLATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 9 May 1846

MASSACHUSETTS LEGISLATURE. A friend has directed our attention to a curious looking paper called The Tocsin , which contains something about us. It is a frightful thing, ornamented with a gallow’s, beneath which the American Flag is suspended, torn and dragged in the mud: in the background, are a crowd of rowdies killing other; and among them, a fellow set up on a stump, singing a song, apparently. This paper takes upon it to defend the Legislature, against some of the strictures which appeared in the Pilot; and the fact makes us consider that we may have been misunderstood in some things we have said about that body. We said that they had committed themselves on the Convent question; that, by their refusal to legislate, they had justified the destruction of Mount Benedict, and rendered the State morally responsible for that disgraceful deed. But we had no idea of mixing up the gentlemen of the Legislature with the gallows knaves who planned and executed the villainy. We believe the...

AGENTS AND CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 9 May 1846

AGENTS AND CORRESPONDENTS. It grieves us to be compelled every week to reject poetical favors. Tiie lines of “ a constant reader” are not in metre nor good syntax. A. Mel’s verses betray talent,but are so carelessly finished, or rather unfinished, as to be inadmissable, wc have marked some corrections on the manuscript as hints to tiie author; and, if he desires to improve in poetical composition, he may obtain his copy with those corrections at our office. We think the lines if carefully pruned would be very worthy of insertion, and should be glad to receive them in a better dress. Dr. McMahon to Dr. Beecher— unavoidably crowded out-it shall appear iu our next. O’ Our good friend of the Catholic Advocate is informed that the subject of its “ anxious enquiry” is a resident of Augusta, away “down east” in the state of Maine. We wish the man of the Advocate would take n trip this way. He shall have the best apartment in our house during his stay. We think him a jolly fellow. Subscribe...

Arrival of the Cambria. ONE WEEK LATER. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 9 May 1846

Arrival of the Cambria. ONE WEEK LATER. The steamship Cambria, Capt. Judkins, left Liverpool 19th ult., at 4 p. m., arrived in Halifax, Ist. inst., at noon, and left at four o’clock. On Saturday night, about 20 minutes to 12, the weather being foggy, the boat running about half speed, and just in the act of stopping for the purpose of sounding, she touched lightly on the bottom. The engines were immediately reversed, but she remained hard and fast. An anchor and stern cable was then carried out, and after heaving on it, the anchor came home, the boat then canting broadside to the beach. It was then discovered by coinmuncating with the shore, that she was aground on the beach, off Truro, Cape Cod, about five miles south of Highland Light, heading south. The Cambria Safe. The Cambria, after-being lightened of about 80 tons in coal, and about 50 tons in chain cables, cargo and luggage, made another effort with the assistance of the steam tow-boat 11. 11.

RIDICULE OF THE IRISH. [Newspaper Article] — Boston Pilot (1838-1857) — 9 May 1846

RIDICULE OF THE IRISH. A correspondent of the Post “craves a comer” of that paper to tell the public that our notice of Mr. Brougham’s entertainments “is most unjust;” and the Post itself conies at his heels crying “ditto.” The opinion of Mr.“ Justus” does not weigh much with us; and *his observations are not calculated to raise the value of his opinion. He puts great reliance on the power of italics; and we can make out, by his use of that kind of type, that he considers us condemned by the fact that no other paper in Boston has found fault Avith Brougham. Perhaps “Justus” will not believe us; but, if he is able to form in his mind the conception of a man who does not run to the newspapers whenever he wants to form an opinion, we will lay our hand upon our heart and assure him we are such an one. He has a sly notion of his own, which he puts into omnipotent italics with paralyzing emphasis. It is to the effect, that we wrote against Mr. Brougham because he did not advertise in the ...
