SACRED TO THE MEMORY OK MRS. GILLIGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 December 1850

1 SACKED TO THE MEMORY OK . MRS., GILLIG-AN. Yes, she is -gone, our own dear mother, Who trained our early thoughts aright ; Who taught us we should love each other, And serve our God with all our might. Yes, she is gone and left us lonely, Yet, wherefore all this grief and mourning ; . ,1 She is not dead, but sleepeth only : . A lovely smile her face adorning. ?That she may rise to realms far hrighter, Than the.beauteous orb of day ; Arrayed in robes of glory whiter Than the snowdrop, we will pray. . May she rest in peace.

Catholic Extracts. THE CATHOLIC'S PECULIAR POWER OF REALIZING TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 December 1850

&att)oltc isstram. THE CATHOLIC'S PECULIAR POWER OF REALIZING TRUTH. (From ' Four years experience of the Catholic Re ligion' by a late member of the University of Oxford.) In recording my personal experience of the influence of the doctrines of Catholisism, and the remarks I have been able to make upon their influence on, other Catholics, it may be as well to commence by slating the general character of that sense of relation ship to the invisible world which the Catho lic rplio-inn Timfpssps tn TOnrk in the*, mind with an efficacy peculiarly its own. I must remind the Protestant reader, then, that the Catholic Church claims to possess a power of communicating to her children a certain definite spiritual gift, which she terms faith, by which a pious Catholic is not obly morally certain of the truth of all Catholic doctrines, and contem plates the actual spiritual realities which those doctrines speak of, as realities, and not as mere opinions, figments of the human mind, or...

THIS "IRISH DIFFICULTY" SOLVED BY CON McNALE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 December 1850

THS£'IliISH[ DlFFIuUl,TYMSQLVEl) I BY CON McNALK. I (From Dickens' Household Words.) - Con Me Nale would have been summarny .repudiated as an Irishman by our farce writers and slashing novelists. He neither drank, fought, »or swore ; did not maw many blunders ; and never addressed a irieno either as his ' honey' or his 'jewel.' '!lS cotamore was of stout frieze, and though Con had long attained his full height, the tailor _ had left him room to grow. The caubeen was not his head-dress, for Con had arrived at-the dignity of a silk hat, which had been manufactured, as the mark in the crown de clared, by the Saxons in the Borough of South'wark, which locality Con believed to be in the neighbourhood of England. The brogues were also absent, but were favour ably represented by shoes of native manu facture laced with stout thongs. In fact, Mr. Me Nale was a fine specimen of the finest pisantry in the world-rwithout the rags. people have gone to the Highlands and to Switzerland, and perhap...

THE LATE MELANCHOLY BOAT ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 2 January 1851

THE LATE MELANCHOLY BOAT ACCIDENT. All our readers have doubtless heard of the melancholy accident which happened during1 the thunder storm on Sunday week. To many of them two of the five individuals who were drowned, were well known. Mr. George Plunkett and his brother Alfred, will long be remembered amongst us Avith feelings of deep regret. None who were acquainted with them could for a moment listen to the cruel insinuation that the Sunday on which they met their death had not been duly observed. They were young men of eminent piety, — and the morn ing of the Sunday in question had been devoted to the most sacred duties of their religion. They might, with a very safe conscience, permit them selves some healthy recreation after the duties of the day, however dangerous such indulgence would be with the great mass of Catholics. It should be distinctly understood that while we strongly de pricate any practice which might cause weak brethren to offend, and, even in this instance, regr...

Ireland. THE PEOPLE IN COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 2 January 1851

Srctantr. . THE 'PEOPLE IN COUNCIL. {From the Dublin Nation Am.nst lOl) Irish agitation lias glorified itself so often that it has left no words to describe the events we have witnessed for the last week. That communication which the angry soul of Swift despaired of, as beyond all hope ; which Grattan aspired' to, and seemed for a dazzling moment to have attained ; which '1 homas Davis, when it had become an an t-quared tradition of Irish politics, revived and enforced with the authority of a prophet -—has actually been attained. North and South East and West, ioined hands, and vowed to separate them no more. Exagger ation grows ashamed before the event. The accidental junction of two or three men on a platform, here and there, often not the most creditable of their class, has sometimes been described as a junction of the North and South. But how few men hoped to see, . with their own eyes, the most venerable Catholic priests of the South, and the most capable and distinguished Pres...

And first, I am glad to hear that you are in good health, and the good you must be doing in your remote part of the world. Father Eugene is still living ; I called to see -him a few days ago and I need not tell you of that happy meeting.. Those who were young men in your time in Meath are now .parish priests.
