DIOCESE OF ARMIDALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 15 February 1896
DIOCESE OF AKMIDALE. (e:ROM OUR OWN COItltESPONDENT.) The annual retreat tor the clergy or the Diocese of Armidale, was brought to a close on Friday last, 7th hist. The conductor was the Very '.Rev. Father O'Earrell, C.SS.E., Superior oi! the Monastery at Ballarat, Victoria. By the expressed opinions I have heard from the Bishop and all the clergy present, it appears that the retreat has been an excellent one. The priests were all delighted with it. On Friday evening there was in the cathedral a large meeting of the members of the Association of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. After the usual devotions, performed by the Director of the Society, the A^ery Eev. Dean O'Connor, V.G-., of Armidale, the Very Eev. Father O'Farrell, CS3.lt-., preached an appropriate and eloquent sermon, which was listened to with wrapt atten tion. After the sermon Father O'Farrell gave the Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacra ment, thus ending the devotions of the oven ing. The cathedral was beautifully decorat...
DIOCESE OF SANDHURST. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 15 February 1896
DIOCESE OP SANDHURST. At the Jfro-CatliGdral on Sunday morning, Mr. David Tobin was promoted to the order of deacon by the Coadjutor-Bishop of the diocese. The ceremony took place at the eight o'clock Mass, at which there was a very large congre gation. On next Sunday the ceremony of ordination will take place at eleven o'clock. The numerous friends of Mr. Thomas Hogan, district vice-president of the H.A.C.B. Society, will be pleased to learn that, after a trip to Tasmania and New South Wales, he has re turned completely recovered from the effects of his recent serious accident. Amongst the many expressions of sympathy forwarded to Mr. Hogan is a letter just received from the Eev. Prior Anderson, O.S.A., Dublin, Ireland. The Wangaratta Despatch of the 1st inst., in a valedictory notice of the removal of the Very Eev. Dean Murphy from Wangaratta to Shopparton, speaks as follows : — ' The congre gation of St. Patrick's Church, Wangaratta, received a painful surprise on Sunday last, wh...
ARCHDIOCESE OF BRISBANE. (The Age.) [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 15 February 1896
AECHDIOCESE OF BRISBANE. (The Age,) It is understood that the Eev. Father D. Fouhy, Administrator of the Cathedral and secretary to the Archbishop, is about to go on a holiday visit to the old country. During his absence his place will probably be filled by either his brother, the Eev. P. Fouhy, or the Eev. John O'Eeilly, of Maryborough. AVe think Father O'Eeilly the most likely. Referring to the record of Father Andrew Koran's highly successful work in the Ipswich district, which was lately published in The Age, a correspondent from the Dowus says : — ' Although many of us here have never yet had the pleasure of seeing that worthy and dis tinguished ecclesiastic, still we hold him in the very highest esteem for his singular and unmis takable honesty of purpose, for his great and — circumstances considered — unequalled suc cess in building up, morally and materially, the Catholic Church in Queensland, and for Vila funplv pfflf-innf nnri alnfoamnnlilro intoti. *.*.* *J V*. »U V ?- J ...

IRISH DANCING. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE CATHOLIC PRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 22 February 1896
IRISH DANCING-. (to the editoe op the catholic peess.) Sie, — Now that St. Patrick's Day Sports are to be conducted by a new system, I trust the gentlemen entrusted with the drawing up of the programme of sports will place upon it a few prizes worth competing for. 1'or the pnst sixteen years I have made a practice to attend picnics, and also the St, Patrick's Day Sports at Botany since they have been held there, and the most I have ever seen given at either picnic or Botany was the ' paltry sum of one pound;' whilst at the same sports pedes trianism for 100 or 150 yards merited £5 and £10.^ In no part of the world where Irish dancing merits a place in the programme of sports conducted therein can you find the paltry sum of £1 offered for the best Irish jig or reel dance save and except ' Sunny New South Wales.' In conclusion, I trust the gentlemen in charge of the St. Patrick's Day Sports for this year will not belittle the national day of Old Ireland by offering the' besfc^ Irish j...

The above society held their usual weekly meeting in the St. Benedict's Hall on Wed nesday, February 12, at 8 p.m., the president, Mr. J. Kirby, in the chair. After some preliminary business, the premier, Mr. W. H. Fitzgerald, was called on to open the debate which stood in his name, namely : — ' We are in favour of banishing all Asiatic and Italian natives out of New South Wales.' Atter a lengthy speech, Mr. J. Eyan replied on behalf of|the Opposition. Members who'spoke in favour of the Asiatic and Italian natives, and who failed to see why they should not be allowed to remain in our midst, were: — Messrs. J. Ilyan, E. McCormack, J. Woods, T. J. Henry, J. Wren, and W. Gh Bray. Members who spoke against the Asiatic and Italian natives, showed many good points why they should not be allowed to remain in New South Wales, and also how they were detrimental to the workers of this country both financially and physically.

A CATHOLIC NEWSPAPER. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE CATHOLIC PRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 22 February 1896
A CATHOLIC NEWSPAPER. (TO THE EDITOR 03? THE CATHOLIC PRESS,) Sin, — I have just read with infinite zest your leading article of the 8th instant, and write to confirm every word of it. Shall I give your readers a little bit of my experience in one direction only ? A couple of years ago I joined what I thought a non-sectarian movement to benefit all the hospitals within the metropolitan area. Well, we cut up into a number of subcom mittees, and on one of them a certain minister (the only one in the movement) happened to Ut5 Ull xi/j wiitJli uuo cvciJ-iJiig «) u liivoii muiij. u.1 1 jj. in- ter was proposed, and instantly this minister of the G-ospel (save the mark !) said he ' drew the line' at Unitarians and Roman Catholics. My friend K ? at once said, ' 'Why Unitar ians, Mr. A. ? ' A. replied, ' Because they deny the divinity of Christ.' I said, ''Why Eoman Catholics, Mr. A. ? ' and from that day to this he has not replied, but after several unsuccessful attempts to become a Member...
(TO THE EDITOR OF THE CATHOLIC PRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 22 February 1896
(to the editob of the catholic peess.) Sie, — In your last two numbers there were very strong remarks about our people not read ing Catholic papers. I agree with you that they don't ; but who is to blame ? If Catholic papers are useful in preserving faith and ad vancing religion, would not the Church in Australia procure us papers and induce us to buy and read them? If the heads of our religion think it not necessary to make any strong enrort m mis direction, is iu not a sign that the evils you speak about do not exist, and that the present condition of things is satisfactory ? At any rate, if we are not con sumed with zeal about Catholic papers or Catholic books, we can find ample justification for our conduct in the laissez-faire policy of those whose professed mission in life is to repress evils and to promote good. In a letter in your columns last week it is pointed out how easily the priests could, if they chose, help the circulation of The Catholic Peess. I will await with int...

CORRESPONDENCE. [We are not responsible for tho opinions expressed by our correspondents.] A DEPLORABLE STATE. (TO THE EDITOR OF TICK CATHOLIC PRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 22 February 1896
CORRESPONDENCE. ? r* ? [Wo uvo not responsible for tho opinions expressed by our correspondents,] A DEPLORABLE STATE. (TO THE EDITOR OF TIC IS CATHOLIC PRESS.) Sir, — I congratulate you on the excellent article which appeared in a late issue of The Catholic Press, headed ' A Deplorable State.' II; reveals in our religious educational system a weak spot, which commands imme diate attention. It exposes a want long felt both by the clergy and those of the laity who take the trouble to consider the true means of advancing Catholic education and Catholic interests. x\j Divings uerore our eyes a aopior atyle picture — the evil influences daily wrought .by infidel and immoral literature, and the almout total absence of any sort of Catholic literature to counteract these iuituencas. It brings home to us a fact which we have before our eyes every day in- the public Press, but the significance of which, perhaps, we do not take time to consider — the indefatigable labours of infidels, moral de...

BERTHA; OR, THE POPE AND THE EMPEROR ___ ? ^ ? ? ? AN HISTORICAL TALE. BY WILLIAM BERNARD MACCABE. CHAPTER VIII.— (Continued). THE CAPTIVE AND THE JAILER. ' My child,' she said, ' if you persist in this despairing grief but three days longer you will certainly kill yourself. Why, you have neither eaten, nor drank, nor slept since you came here.' ' Nor will I do so, so long as I am a prisoner here,' replied Beatrice, ' unless the request I nin.fl ft In.sfc nitric hn r»n mnlied with — that of having, as an attendant, one of those poor Saxon women that I saw upon landing, and who manifested so much sympathy for an unknown captive.' 'But in easel comply with your request,' said the woman, who called herself Sister Adelaide, 'will you promise to perform for me that which I shall ask ?' u Certainly, Sister Adelaide,' answered Beatrice ; ' for one in your holy garb could make no improper request.' ' It is,' replied Sister Adelaide, ' that you will cast away from you those soiled habili men...
