SOCIAL [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 8 February 1896

SOCIAL, Miss Woollet and Miss Pedley are touring Italy en route for England. They express themselves as being disappointed at the music in Naples. At Florence, ' Aida ' was being sung with an orchestra oi: seventy and a chorus of# 200. The music played by the splendid military bands in the gardens in the various cities they thoroughly enjoyed, and they again express a wish that something of the kind should be given to the people of Sydney occasionally, .11. V # At the club premises of the Bovvral and Moss Vale Tennis Club last week there was a dance, which was well attended, and proved altogether quite a success, the fine cool night having much to do with the comfort of the visitors. These included Sir W. P. Manning and Lady Manning, Miss Edith Manning, Mrs. Berry Drinan, Mrs. James Harrison, Miss Harrison, Mrs. Charles B. Fairfax, Mrs. 0. W. Marsden, and others. * Last 'Wednesday week, at St. Mary's Cathedral, were married Miss Ruby Barton, daughter of Mrs. Abbott, oi: Wallerawang,...

A DEPLORABLE STATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 8 February 1896

A DEPLORABLE STATE. In our latest issue we briefly called attention to the fact that at a recent trial in Paris it was publicly stated in Court that the rites and ceremonies of devil-worship are taught and practised in four conventicles in that great centre of modern infidelity and Rationalism. The professors of this ghastly creed have also established a journal, to which they have given the very appropriate name, the 'Devil's Bulletin,' by means of which they intend to strengthen their posi tion, to increase their numbers, and in every way to effectively support their new religion — the worship of Satan, the apotheosis of this century's hate of the Divinity of Christ, and its ceaseless struggle to overturn Christianity. That numbers should make public profession of their love and esteem for the Devil — the embodiment of everything that is hateful in the sight of God, and ruinous to men — is not a matter at this period of the world's history to excite much surprise. To bring about t...

AT HOME AND ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 8 February 1896

AT HOME AND ABROAD. , ^ _ The threat said to have been contained in the letter of Her Majesty the Queen to the Sultan, that he ran a danger of losing his crown, has possibly produced its effect. It is repeated that an understanding has been come to between Eussia and Turkey, by which Turkey agrees to follow the guidance of liussia in her foreign policy, and llussia agrees to guarantee his throne to the Sultan. This being the case, the outcome of the situation appears to be something more sinister than had been bar gained for. It is hardly wise, perhaps, for monarchs to be too outspoken, even to one another. The fall of Ministers is not so serious a matter as that of monarchs. Considering its frequency nowadays, this may be taken as a fortunate thing, iSignor Crispi, too, shares the common lot. Not with any hope of success, we are told, but to gain time, he has, for example, recently managed to put off a Parlia mentary debate on colonial matters. Like others, he has taken up the habi...

DEPARTURE OF VERY REV. MONSIGNOR_VERDON. The Priests of the Archdiocese make him a presentation. Very Rev. Monsignok Verdon', who has been recently appointed by the Prelates of Australia to officially represent this country in Rome, leaves on next Monday by the R.M.S.S. Orotava for the sphere of his new duties. For eight years the distinguished ecclesiastic has been connected, as Eector of Manly College, with the Archdiocese, and his exalted character, his many priestly virtues, his wide learning and steadfast devotion to duty endeared him to all, but particularly to the priests of the Arch diocese. They thought it but just to them selves then to not permit him to leave the colony without offering him some tribute of their gratitude and esteem, and consequently on last Saturday, at the conclusion of the annual retreat at Manly, before separating they presented him with an address and a beautiful gold chalice. The chalice, a splen did work of art, made by the well-known firm of Messr...

BERTHA; OR, THE POPE AND THE EMPEROR ? , ? , ? A ? , AN HISTORICAL TALE. BY WILLIAM BERNARD MACCABE. CHAPTER VII.— (Continued). HENRY IV., KING- 03? GERMANY. ' Your Majesty surprises me ; I did not know, until this moment, that Anno of Cologne had ever done you personal wrong,' said Sigefrid. ' Then listen, and see by what a base device he lured me from my mother's side, when I was but a mere boy,' continued Henry. ' Anno was my father's confessor, and so cruel was he to that good, weak man that he has been known to impose upon him — upon his sovereign, the Emperor — so harsh and brutal a penance as the discipline. I vow to you that he has actually compelled the Emperor, before he placed upon his shoulders the Imperial robes, to have his flesh bruised and mangled by the torturing whip of the discipline, as if he were a male factor. My father was sometimes so pious that he forgot he was an Emperor ; but Anno never was so forgetful. He always remem bered that he was confessor to the E...
