The second-grade match between Norlh Sydney CO. and the Manly CO. was won by the North Sydney eleven by 45 runs. The University and JNorth bydney nrst grade match resulted in a draw. St. Mary's High School C.C. 44 and 46 for five wickets (P. Dimond 16, L. Waring 14), defeated St. Francis, 37 and 53 (Glass 27). 'For the winners J. Pry took seven wickets for 10 runs. Considerable dissatisfaction exists in cricket ing circles regarding the omission of Turner, Lyons, and A. E. Trott from the team selected to tour England this season. It is thought that a fatal blunder has been made in not picking Trott, and Lyons' claims as a big hitter have been fully ventilated. It is quite certain that Turner is not the terror of a few years ago, and it is equally true that he has not been very successful in Australia of late. It is considered, however, that on the Eng...

AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 8 February 1896
AMUSEMENTS. ? _a ? The Easter Exhibition of the Royal Agri cultural Society of New South Wales pro mises to be a great advance on anything done by the Society in former years. The prize list has been largely increased, the prizes in some instances being doubled. In every respect arrangements have been made to insure a brilliant success. One of the best comedies ever produced in Sydney is now running to bumper houses at the popular Criterion Theatre. 'Hide and Seek ' has been a thorough success since the opening night, and it is therefore unfortunate that it is not to have a longer run. Those wishing to enjoy a really funny entertainment cannot do better than drop in at the Criterion. Mr. Wilfrid Shine and Mr. Ralph Roberts alone provide incidents of a side-splitting nature. Mr. W. J. Wilson, the popular manager, beams with smiles every evening, and well he may, judging by tho hu^e scramble for seats that takes place nightly.
DIOCESE OF PORT AUGUSTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 8 February 1896
DIOCESE OF POET AUGUSTA. (Southern Cross.) The new Bishop hails from the parish of Ballyneil, Tipperary, and is fifty-three years of age. He was educated at Mount Melleray Grammar School, and studied for the priest hood at St. John's College, Waterford. In 1868 he arrived in Adelaide, having been ordained at Maynooth the same year. During the time he was in the archdiocese, Father Maher was located in different places. He was stationed for a time in Adelaide, and had charge of the educational seminary in Franklin street, established by Dr. Shiol. He was also stationed at Kadina, Mount Barker, and Kapunda. On the opening up of! the Northern A.reas Father Maher was sent to Pekina, where he has remained ever since. His parish is one of the most Catholic in the colony, and under his benignant rule the utmost harmony has prevailed. The northern portion of the colony was constituted a separate see in 1887, and Dr. OMteily constituted first Bishop. He appointed Father lVlaher his vioar-gen...

ARCHDIOCESE OE MELBOURNE. (Advocate.) [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 8 February 1896
ARCHDIOCESE OF MELBOURNE. (Advocate.) Amongst the several charitable institutions of tho archdiocese which enjoy the approbation of the Church, none, perhaps, are doing more solid work in a quiet way than St. Joseph's Home for Destitute Children at Surrey Hills, which differs in many important aspects from an orphanage, although intended solely for the helpless little ones. In the first place, children are admitted at a much younger age than is the case with kindred institutions — for example, from three years. Again, the establishment partakes of tno.ro of the nature oF a homo, a feature -morn or less wanting in the largo orphanages from tho neceayifcy in the latter caso of having to shelter several hundreds of children under one rooF. Tho homo is situated mid-way between Surrey Hills and Canterbury, but ih more (MiNily approached from the latter direction. The visitor does not experience much difficulty in finding his way, as the name, ' St. Joseph's,' is printed on the slanting r...

The members of the Association of the Sacred Heart of Jesus received Holy Communion. There was a large congregation both at eight and eleven o'clock Masses. The Very Eev. Dean O'Connor, Y.Gh, preached a practical sermon after the last Mass, and addressed the members of the Association at 4i p.m., before the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. The Kev.

DIOCESE OF PERTH. (W.A. Record.) [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 8 February 1896
DIOCESE OF PERTH. (W.A. Record.) On Sunday, January 19, at eleven o'clock Mass, His Lordship the Bishop drew attention to the fact that the Catholic schools, which resumed work the day following, were no longer receiving any assistance from the Government, and that it behoved every Catholic to do all in his power to make up tor the loss sustained by the cessation or the grant. It was, he said, the duty of all Catholic parents to send their children to one of their own schools. He felt sure that as time went on the Catholics in Western Australia would be able to point with pride to their schools as being the best in the colony.
DIOCESE OF SANDHURST [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 8 February 1896
DIOCESE OP SA.NDHIJ.RST. The Coadjutor- Bishop of the diocese, Dr. Eeville, celebrated the eleven o'clock Mass on Sunday, January 26, in tho pro- Cathedral, aud promoted Mr. David To bin to the order of Bub-deueon. This is the first of the sacred orders by which the candidate is bound to devote himself to tho ecclesiastical state. The ordination ot a sub-deacon is a very solemn function. The candidate appears at the altar before the Bishop, bearing on his arm tho tunic and maniple with which he is afterwards invested. He touches with his right hand the chalice and paten, receiving also the Book of! the Epistles. He then commences the duties of his office by reading the Epistlo assigned for the Sunday. Towards the end of the Mass the Bishop gives him the kiss of peace and exhorts him to be faithful in the discharge of the duties of his office. An immense con gregation was present at the Mass, and took a deep interest in the important ceremony. On Sunday next the order of deacon will ...
AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 15 February 1896
AMUSEMENTS. In the farcical comedy ' Mixed,' an amusing play was admirably produced on Saturday night, for the first time, at the Criterion Theatre. The play explains the fix in which a man — more especially a much-married man — may find himself by losing his hat in a scrimmage. The parts of a middle-aged, but delinquent, Benedict in a state of nervous perplexity ; a writing-master, in whom the matter-of-fact flatness of his calling is relieved by a comic strain ; and an Irish valet (the broth of a boy) whose humour is rich and racy, and who sings a tuneful Irish song containing sentiment enough to touch, and fun enough to keep its sentiment from working over-much on tender feelings, were cleverly represented respectively by Messrs. Wilfrid E. Shine, Ralph Eoberts, and John D. Foley. The parts of a young French wooer, speaking English, ' as she is spoke,' but of polished manners and fashion able appearance, and that of a youth in rather trying circumstances, found each an intelligen...
