DERRY NOT A $MAIDEN CITY.-The jubi
lations in song and prose over the position
taken by Derry, in rebellion against the
English King JamesII., all assume the form
of proclaiming that Derry was "a maiden
on the hill, boys," who would "remain a
maiden still, boys." It is unnecessary here
to say anything about that "siege," or ra
ther blockade. The gates were first shut
under an unfounded fear,' and, if the at
tacking enemy had had a few good guns,
the walls would not have been in such a
state of preservation. The moral courage
of the inhabitants deserves all credit, for,
though they made no such display of valor
as were exhibited by Custumedn the bridge
of Athlone, or even by the women at
Limerick, they yet held out against famine
very gallantly. If the Catholics of Derry
were " Romanists" or "Popish," instead 1
of being Irish Catholics-upon them would
devolve the duty of taking a principal part
in these celebrations of the siege. For the
Pope and Spain were leagued with William
III., against James II. and France. It was
William, therefore, not James, who could
show " the Pope's commission." Only for
the Pope's influence with the Emperor in
Germany, it appears certain that William
would not have ventured across to Eng
land. The Pope smoothed away the ob
stacles, and helped him over. And the
C aurt of Rome rejoiced as much over the
result of the battle of the Boyne as any
later Williamite. This is history, but it is
also of historical record that Irish Catholics
have not been always in accord with the
political arrangements of the Court of
Rome. In neither way, therefore, can 1
prejudice sway us from a strict historical
judgment of facts. Derry was not a
"'maiden city " before that siege, where the
champions of the Pope's protege, William,
held out so sturdily. Not having been
a maiden' before that time, its resist
ance then could not make it one.
The date of 1608 must be remembered as
well as that of 1688. Sir George Pawlett,
Governor of Derry, in that year insulted,
by word and blow, a firm ally of the city,
young Sir Cahir O'Doherty. That gallant
Iyoung chieftain would have preferred death I
rather than tamely brook such an affront.
Hlis blood boiled to avenge himself on the
arrogant man who had so broken the laws
of hospitality and. violated the conditions
of a cordial alliance. He took counsel tith
his friends of Innishowen, and his vengeance
was swift, sudden and complete. The fort
of Culmore, on the river-side, below Derry,
was seized on the night of the 3d of May,
1608, and at daybreak in the morning he
gave the soldiery of Derry the "cold
awakening of the sword." Governor Paw
lett fell before the retributive hand of
Owen, grandson of Gerald O'Doherty; his
lieutenant, Corbie, was slain by John
O'Donnell. There were but a few of the
many slain. Captain Vaughan and the
wife of the Bishop were taken prisoners--a
Captain and a Bishopesm, we presume, were
of equal rank in the defence. Sir Cahir
O'Doherty was well avenged. Great spoil
was carried off from the Egyptians who
had insulted him, and the red flamnies of
Derry that flashed fromlr the Foyle andl;
crinimsoned the sky with thie glaio of its
conflagration, proclainmed to Ireland that
D)erry was a violated and a vanquished
[The extreme political views of the writer of
the foregoing has blinded him to the truth of
history, in so far as it refers to the connection
of the Pope with the incidents nairated. There
is-no authority for the asesertion that " the
Court of Rome rejoiced as much over the re
sult of the battle of the Boyne as any later
QUESTION OF TASTE.--We regretted that
one of the essays read at the Normal
school last evening, should have such bit
ter words about the Pope and the Infalli
bility dtgma. The principal of the school
is said to be very intolerant of the public
criticisms, by pupils, on the methods of in
struction pursued therein. Should there
not be even less toleration of unnecessary
stacks on the religious views of a
Sass of citizens who are taxed to support
Sthe school, and who are entitled to all its
privileges and benefite~ We were not
pleased that such a weakness in one of tlhe
most reputable schools in the State shoulf
be so barely exposed to the keen eyes and
cultivated understanding of the respecta
ble Catholic clergyman who sat on the
stage. We feel impelled to express a doubt
as to the good taste of such things-or that
of clergymen of their faiths who show so
much elation about such a thing at such a
time.--fw rcgo I'resn.
One of our contemporaries,, speaking of
Irish artistic genius in connection.with the
name of another well-known Irish artist,
Dion Boucicault, says:
When we take into consideration the re
lative proportion of the two countries, and
the terrible disadvantages, social and edu
cational as well as political, under which
one of them has labored for centuries, it is
wonderful what a vastly preponderating
share Ireland has contributed to what is
called " English?" art-to say nothing of
English oratory and literature. Take, for
example, the eLrama-a fascinating branch
of art. The number of g:eat actors of
Irish birth who have won favor on the
British stage is a very remarkable evidence
of the brilliant artistic genius of the race.
A multidinous army of names crowds upon
our memory even as we write : the elder
Sheridan, the rival of Garrick, Macklin (or,
to give his real name, McLoughlin), author
of the famous comedy, " The H) pocrite,"
and the greatest imperdbnator of "Shylook"
that ever trod the boards-Barry, Blake,
and a host of others. The celebrated Peg
Woffington, the most fascinating actress
that ever appeared on the British stagh,
was originally a poor Dublin orange girl.
Her name alone indicates the nationality
of Miss O'Neil, the greatest mistress of
pathos that ever evoked the tears of an
enrapt audience. Need we scarce mention
O'Keeffe,, distinguished as a dramatic
writer and lyrist, as'well as an actor; Kelly,
the gifted family of the Keeleys, Kenny,
and others celebrated in every department
of the mimic art. It was a mere accident
of birth that the elder Kean (the fiery Ed
mund) was a Londoner; for both his parents
were Irish, as the name indicates. But his
son and successor, Charles, was Irish, not
only by blood but by birth; his mother was
a. Waterford lady, and he was born there.
For many years the famous tragedian Mac
.ready reigned supreme, without a rival, on
the British stage. He was a native of the
Irish capital. Cork claims the honor of
being the birthplace of James Sheridan
Knowles, who, if he was not very dis
tinguished as an actor, was assuredly the
most highly-gifted "English" dramatic poet
since the Elizabethian era-always except
ing that brother Irishman, Gerald Griffin,
whose single play, " Gisippus" is the high
eat dramatic effort of this century.
To American readers such names as
Brougham, Daly, Florence, Williams, and
others, "kindly Irish of the Irish," are so
pleasantly familiar that it is needless to do
more than mention them here. The great
est and most successful tragedian now on
the British stage is Barry Sullivan, a fellow
townsman of Sheridan Knowles, whom we
are happy to humber amongst our familiar
friends. But, indeed, the number of dis
tinguished Irish actors and actresses who
have adorned the British stage is so great
that the enumeration of their names would
almost occupy more space than we have at
command for the article.
Irishmen have equally illustrated the
lyric drama. Sheridan's Duenna is incom
parably the most beautiful opera ever writ
ten. Two Irishmen-Michael Balfe and
Vincent Wallace-are the greatest of the
so-called. English" operatic composers;
and such Irish singers and operatic ac
tress as Catherine Hayes and others
were genuine children of song. Victoria
Balfe would have been one of the most
fascinating ornaments of the lyri'stage,
if a Spanish hidal~go f.seiated by the
charms of the fair Iris ,leaibees, had not
laid his ducal coronet at her feet.
The celebrated dramatist, Dion Bouci
canult, is a genuine Celt. His name is French,
but Irish and French blood flows in his
veins in equal shares, and he is himself
a native of the city of Dublin. We are
not aware whether, like that other
genial actor and dramatic writer, John
Brougham, he is a graduate of the great
Irish University; but the productions of
his facile pen prove that he is a gentleman
Whilst his reputation as an actor was es
tablished, Boucicault first asserted his skill
as a writer of dramatic works by his most
happy adaptation of Gerald Griffin's most
beautiful novel, "The Collegians," to the
stage. The dramatization of that work,
under the title of "The Colleen Bawn,"
proved the greatest stage success up to
that time known. In America it was per
formed hundreds of nights in succession
to crowded and enthusiastic audiences, the
author himsely playing, with a mingled
humor and pathos worthy of Tyrone
Power himself, the part of tihe generous,
true-hearted Irish smuggler, Miles N -
coppaleen, and his beautiful and accom
plished wife, representing the heroine. The
play met with like success in Londoni and
in every principal city in Great Britain :
and Boucicault soon realized by it a hand
some fortune. The clever actor and
dramatist speedily became one of the lions
of London ; and his villa, in a fashionable
western suburb of that city, became the
hospitable resort of all the leading litters
teurs, actors, painters, sculptors and eoq
noscentl generally of Great Britain. Other
plays flitlowed in rapid succession ; and
thleir li4t.is longer tha, we care.to relpet
here. T'l'hey have brought thie author
wealth and fame, and with his wealth Bou
cicault fitly labors to maintain the dignity
of the profession. That Boucicault is a
man of lovable and attractive character
would appear from one anecdote from his
domestic life. It is well known that a
wealthy English Baronet laid his hand,
fortune and title at the feet of thie then
fascinating young actress, Miss lRobertson ;
but she rejected the tempting offor of rank
and wealth, and preferred to share the for
tunis of the struggling young Irish actor.
She became Mrs. Boucicault. Dion Bouci
cault is one of the most prolific dramatic
writers of the age.
ST. PAUL NOT A PROTESTANT.-Dr. nMdr
shall, late editor of the London Tatblcteaud
author of "Christian Missions" and "Com
edy of Convocation," delivered a lecture
on "St. Paul and Protestantism" on the Ilth
inst., in the hall of St. Francis Xavier Col
lege, New York. We copy from Thie Tri
The epistles of St. Peter and St. James,
said he, have always been a profoumnd mys
tery to all sects of Protestants. They con
tain so mdch that cannot be reconciled with
the thirty-nine Articles and thie other
tenets of non-Roman Catholic belief, that
it is customary to hold them as unessential
amlndisionary. In thlis view of them, the
present generation of Protestants, is but
following in tihestepsof tine leading reform
en's: Luther--with that extreme modesty I
which characterises his writing-termed the
epistle of St. James " an ecstJ of strAw,"
f and if questioned would undl tedly have
asserted his ability to corl i. The lec
turer then went on to dssw that most of
the Protestants derived their forms of be
lief, not from the Bible, but from the teach
- ings of Luther, Calvin or Knox. and that
I on this account they accepted the dogmas
of the disciples of these men with far
greater avidity than they ivould teceive the
dittect testimony of Peter or James, were
it possible for them to appear once again
in the world. He then drew a picture
F of the consternation which the appearance
of Ste. Peter and James would create in a
fashionable church; the terror of the minis
ter, the disgust of the people, and predicted
a fearful falling off of pow-rents should
sueh strange doctrines be promulgated.
Peter, they would say, is more a Hindu
than a Protestant. But if the non-Roman
Catholics abandon Peter and James, they
cling with great tenacity to the preachings
of Paul, who was a man after their own
hearts. St. Peter might say what he liked
about the difficulty of understanding St.
Paul's epistles; it might be so in his case,
but almost any modern minister could
write a commentary on all of them. In
deed, so strong was this feeling of depend
once upon the Apostle among the Gentiles,
that the lecturer knew a clergyman of the
Church of England who, in the heat of a
discussion, said, "If it hadn't been for
Paul, the whole thing would have been a
failure." In order to be consistent, the
Protestants should accept faithfully all the
teachings of St. Paul. But was this the
case t Dr. Newman had pointed out that
the only persons Paul anathematized were
heretics, or those who sought to make a
diversion in tile sects; and yet Protestants
affirm that the greatest virtue and strength
lies in an unlimited number of sects, every
man, in fact, having an opinion of his own
on all religious matters. How far does this
sustain St. Paul's theory? Dr. Marshall
then touched upon the conflicting ideas
entertained by Protestants respectiig the
ministry, the mystery of the altar, and
clerical celebacy, and claimed that in all
these matters the Roman Catholic Church
had adhered to the strict lawslaid down by
the Apostle. In conclusion, he said, "We
should ask all Protestants this question : If
St. Paul, as you wish to believe, was a Pro
testant, what reason do you give why every
word uttered wakes a responsive echo in
each Roman Catholic heart, while many of
his words are is direct contradiction to
everything you now believe? If anything
I have said seems harsh or unkind, I would
excuse myself by saying that I have, in my
comparisons, copied only from the writings
of St. Paul, and it is the most ardent wish
of my life that all Protestants may become
true disciples of him, using the blessings
which we now enjoy even better than we
TIHE POOi LAws IN IRELAND.-Only a
few weeks ago the papers recorded how an
old man died of hunger in one of the Lon
don workhouses, and how a young woman
was sent from the workhouse to give evi
dence in a court with her clothes wringing
wet, it having just been taken out of the
wash-tub. Father Peter Conway, P. P. of
Killursa, has written a letter to the Lord
Lieutenant, which is published in the Gal
way Vindicator, detailing the strange cruel
ty of the workhouse system in his part of
Ireland, and illustrating it with examples.
The poor laws, as at present administered
in Ireland, instead of being a blessing, are
a curse to the poor. They are mocked,
humbugged, persecuted, whilst the rate
payers, who are taxed, are plundered and
robbed, and the go-betweens are corrupted
and taught to job and trade on the vitals
of the poor. Thus the people are made
disloyal and disco ented, and the Poor
Law Commissione a the head-centres
of this sad sta of things in Ireland.
Taking into account:t o present state of
things, and comparing the present popula
tion with what it was in '48, I believe the
people are poorerand more miserable. "But
the poorhouses are not so crowded, and the
rates are low." What a fallacy! The peo
ple are dead.and gone, exterminated from
their own country, and those that are at
home will not enter the workhouses. In
the year '48 the people were represented as
loyal and content. Such is the polipy of
1871. I believe they were never more dis
loyal and discontented, and no one knows
the feelings of the Irish people at home and
abroad better than I do. In 1848 I warned
the Poor Law Commissioners of the state
of the country. In 1870 I did the same.
Your Excellency knows the sad and fatal
result. About two months ago I made it
my business to visit every townlandiAn my
parish. I found that numbers werel in
great distress and misery, that there were
500 young men who were preparing to go
to America, the home and refutge of the
misruled .rish people. That theios young
men would be but too happy to remain in
their own country if they could "earn their
bread by the sweat of their brows."
Thie Lord Lieutenant has assured F. Con
way that he has referred to the P'oor-Law
Commissioners for inquiry an.d report.
A FReNcli VIEW OF AN ENGLISH CIIuimir
MAS.-- M. Felix 'Pyat gives the following
account of Christmas in England:
Christmas is the great English fete, the
Protestant carnival, an Anglo-Saxon gala a
gross, pagan, monstrous orgie--a Roman
feast, in which thie vomitorium is not want
ing. And the eaters of "bif" laugh at us
for eating frogs. Singular natiou! The
most Biblical and the most ministerial of
Europe; the best Christians and thie great
estgluttons. They cannot celebrate a reli
giousfete withouteating. On Holy Friday
they eat buns, and forthis reason they call
it Good Friday. Good, indeed, for them,
if not for God. They pronounce messe
"mass," and boudin "pudding." The pud
ding is made of suet, sugar, currants and
tea. The mess is boiled for fifteen days,
sometimes for six months; then it is con
sidered delicious. No pudding, no Christ
mas. The repast is sacred, and the English
meditate over it for six months in advance;
they are the only people who put money in
a savings' bank for a dinner. Each poor
family economizes for months, and takes a
shilling to a publican every Saturday of the
year, in return for which on Christmas Day
they gorge themselves, and are sick for a
week after. This is their rehlgion; thus
I they adore their God
