:Si mfyolit ?£xtract0, INTELLECTUAL EFFECTS OF CA TtiOLICTSM. (From ' Four years experience of the Catholic Re ligion,' by a fate member of the University of Oxford.) _ _ I I now proceed to give an account of the 1 effect that a submission to the Catholic I (Jhurch exercises on the general faculties of I the mind, not siniply as leaving them to the I unhindered development of their native I strength, but as exerting on them a posi | tive strengthening and elevating power ; as I serving, in a word, to confer a true intel 1 lectual discipline upon, the mind.

POPISH FLORINS.. (From Punch. y We see there has been a terrible piece1 of work with Queen Victoria's last baby of the Mint, the Florin. Never in the memory of the oldest money-lender, has there been1 .sucfe a disturbance among the coin. And for this reason Miss Florin ''has appeared in terrible dishabil e: Quite unfit to keep com pany with respectable pious coins,, with all the properties about them. But then Misg Florin was introduced to society by a Romas; Catholic Master of the Mint ^how much un like Sir Isaac Newton, master sent from the moon and stars to test guineas and crowns) j and besides what was wanting about the head of Miss Florin, besides the absent Dei Gratia and Def.

SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

SAINT VI NCENT DE PA UL. (From the Gentleman's Magazine.) . A true and holy love is never at a loss for objects on which to expend itself. In returning from one of his missionary jour neys, and .when; close to the wall of Paris, Saint -Vincent de Paul beheld a beggar oc cupied in mutilating the limbs of a child, witlj a view to its becoming an object of profitable :cpmpassion. Impelled by indig nation, horror, and disgust,' St. Vincent rushed forward, exclaiming — ' Wretch, you have deceived me ; at a distance I took you for a man.' He snatched the child, which was a foundling, from the arms of the beggar, carried it through the streets of Paris, and narrated to every, one he met the barbarous scene of which he had just been witness. A crowd gathered round him, accompanied by whom he went to that place in the metropolis which was allotted for the reception of found lings, and where they were heaped and huddled together like beasts of the field. The greater number died from barbarous...

Literature. A PATRIOT'S GRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

Literature. A PATRIOT'S GRAVE. [Mr. William Davis departed this life on the 17th of August, 1843, aged 78 years. He was one of the last survivors of those who were Exiled without the formality of a Trial, for the Irish Political Movement of 1798. He was an upright and honest man — zealous in the cause of Religion, and a generous Benefactor to its Institutions. He ended his days in sentiments of true piety. May he rest in peace, Amen. — Epitaph.] Within this damp, contracted, silent cell, The relics of a patriot Exile lie;   His faults amid its depths of darkness dwell — His virtues live — they could not with him die. And when the moon just risen flings her gleam, As if a smile from Heaven on his tomb, The burnish'd epitaph, heart-rending theme, To me 's a history of my country's doom!   He lov'd his native land — and this was sin — He rose to save that land — and this was crime — He fought — but happened not the prize to win Hence must he lose the Patriot's...

? mteratnve* THE CHURCH' DIAL. , By Father Fabku, of tbe Oratory. j . Beneath me was the misty sea, O'er which a beetling siiimmit hung, And, half way~up, a blasted tree With creaking branches swung : The yellow crowsfoot blossomed there; And juicy samphire to the bare And lean rock clung. | And sweetly to the very edge I The soft and thymy greensward crept, I And, hanging slightly o'er the ledge, 1 Perpetually wept With drippings from a hidden spring, Heard only when the murmuring Of ocean slept. There, almost stooping o'er the wave, A rustic chapel stood ; below, The sea had hollowed out a cave With labour long and slow ; Anid it was plain, that any shock That church from off its brow of rock Might overthrow. And many a simple heart would grieve At this rude sacrilege of time, Who loved for prayer, at morn or eve,. The chalky downs to climb, While to their litanies the wave, With its eternal thunder gave Response sublime So plaintively the soft sea wailed, So blue and breezy were ...

From the Rufus to the Darling 70 soundings' were taken ; the deepest three and a-half fathoms, the shallowest eight feet ; the soundings for the most part gave two fathoms. The shallow water was over a sand-bank near Moourna, Mr. Edward Bagot's station, in New South Wales, about . 40 miles before coming to the Darling. On each side of this sand-bank at the lowest time of water, namely, in June, three to four feet were said to prevail. 11 feet high ; at its junction with the Murray it is 100. yards wide and two fathoms deep. There is a substantial new ferry punt across the Darling, about one mile Tip the river. It is worked by rope, and is capable of crossing a loaded dray audits team.
