(To the Editor of the Melbourne Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850

( To the Editor of the Melbourne Morning Herald. ) Sir,— As the Catholic' bookseller of Melbourne, I can not suffer the present opportunity to pass without alluding to the statements of- Dr. Perry at the late Bible Society's meeting, where he stated that the Catholic Church does not allow of the reading of the Bible, and that it is contrary to the ordinances of the Church. The letter of Rev. G. A. Ward, which appears in your columns of to-day, is a sufficient answer to the groundlessness of T-»-C=* nUn^vno TTJo mil#? qywI nil p im+ a lilp mnrmpv ftp liU \^HC4A £i f^O.

Dr. Perry asks, ' what priest of the Church of Rome, or Bishop, had ever used'any exertions for the circulation of the Bible, or had recommended that any exertions should be used ? By way of ...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. PERVERSION OF AN ORPHAN GIRL. (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) [?] [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850

O1UGINAL COIillESPONDENOE. -PERVERSION 01? AN ORPHAN GIRL. (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal. ) uemm,e.me.n,-i ueg to bring under your notice a little incident that occurred here the other day as a sample of Protestant zeal. A clergyman of a certain communion, much persecuted for the last three centuries, called at a man's residence in Geringong, nameless for the present, for the pur pose of visiting one of his people, an 'orphan girl' hired4 in the family, to afford her spiritual in struction. The clergyman was peremptorily refused permission to see the girl, haying been told that was not a Catholic ; though she has been always known as such, both by her shipmates and Catholic neighbours. It is currently believed that the girl has been tampered with by the family, and induced to deny her faith. The fact, that the mistress of the house posted herself at the door, and would not allow the girl to come and see her clergyman, sufficiently justifies the suspicion entertained by ma...

EPITOME OF HOME NEWS. THE REV. C. GORHAM AND W. MASKELL. (To the Editor of the Church and State Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850

EPITOME OK HOME NEWS. THE REV. C. GORHAM AND W. MASKELL. (To the Editor of the Church and State Gazette. ) Sir— In a recent number or your paper u was stated that the Rev. W.

The same assertion has recently been made in another of the most respec table of our periodical publications ; and the fact is there connected with some stringent remarks on fore to be due to Mr. Maskell that I should rectify that erroneous statement, for the origin of which I am unable to account. Mr. Maskell was present at my examination simply as an amanuensis ; he recorded all the ques V tions and answers ; and read them aloud, that they mMit receive the recognition of both the bishop and myself. It is possible, or very probable, that he acted as the bishop's adviser in 'private; but certainly he took no part avowed...

THE FIRE BRIGADE OF LONDON. [PART II.] [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850

THE FIRE BRIGADE OF LONDON. [part ii.I , (From Dickens1 Household Words ) ':\ The present efficient condition of fire engines, as may easily be supposed, has oni_v been the result of many years of skilful ex periment and practical experience. Our an cestors (notwithstanding their wisdom) were by no means furnished with such means of extinguishing fire, although from the great number of wooden buildings, and greater quantity of wooden materials employed, to say nothing of thatch, they had greater need of them. Still, the want of a DroDer engine is manifest from what we know of their at tempts in that way. They used squirts, — actually nothing but squirts. Every Alder man was obliged to provide one. It will fce nnderstood that the squirt was not of school boy dimensions, but so large as to require two men, holding it in their arms between them, like a sort of mummy, to dip its nose into a bucket, and then, raising it to the proper angle, discharge the contents at the building on fire....

THE ARCHBISHOP OF TURIN. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850

THE ARCHBISHOP OF TUAlN. I' The Sydney Morning Het aid's extracts of m foreign news contain, according to its well W known impartial care, some passages intended [ ' to be offensive and insulting to Catholics. The good Archbishop of Turin, as all men know, was imprisoned for declining to abandon I spiritual liberties of his people. Being a m Catholic, and, what is still worse, an Arch il:; r bishop, he cannot possibly have either for ft . himself or his people any civil rights. What H '- a Government woufd not dare to perpetrate, H or to permit, in the case of laymen and lay if property, must be quietly submitted to by i an ecclesiastic, and in church property which if belongs to, and is especially the enjoyment i and heritage of, the poor. That those who H -l\e in possession of another's property should I- be, by their own act, excommunicated, i?? m we imagine, no very strange thing. It needed m ao special decision of this or that bishop, I this or that priest, it was a matter of c...

ARCHBISHOP PLUNKET AND THE PENAL LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850

ARCHBISHOP PLUNKET AND THE PENAL LAWS. It is some consolation to a Catholic mind to find even tardy justice done to- the me mory of the champions of the Faith by a distinguished writer, who, himself, does not profess that Faith. And. the consolation, is considerably enhanced by the reflection, , that the present Chief Justice of England vindicates the innocence of an illustrious victim of the penal laws, from the false and wicked judgment passed on him by one of his own predecessors in office. We allude to the Most Rev. Doctor Oliver Plunket, Primate of all Ireland, who was unjustly condemned to death by Chief Justice Pem berton, on an unfounded charge of ' high treason.' Lord Campbell gives a concise account of this strange and extraordinary trial, in his valuable work on the 'Lives of the Chancellors of England,' from which we give an extract in another column. Bishop Challoner narrates more at large the history of this trial in his memoirs of Missionary Priests, but the account g...

ST. PHILIP NERI AND THE ORATORIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850

ST. PHILIP NEEI AND THE ORATORIANS (3'orn the Tablet ) That the great Apostle of Rome, St. Philip Neri, is at present, from his throne of intercession in Heaven, exercising a remarkable influence on behalf of the Catholic Church in England, few observers of the state of religion will be disposed to doubt. Were it only the fact that some of the most power ful, devout, and generous minds among the recent converts have been congregated in his Order, this would be enough to show that England is indebted in a peculiar manner to that blessed Saint. Those gular instances of grace, and, whatever circum stances characterised the movement which led to them, deserve attention and have their meaning. But,' surely, there is more in it than the simple fact to which we have alluded. A particular Saint, hitherto not of extraordinary celebrity in England, suddenly comes into notice. He stands at the heard of a body of religious men, who speak as his chil dren ; he energises by them ; his name symbol...

Let us translate into plain language the ravings of the poor man who cou'd write thus'.
