LETTER FROM McCOMB CITY, IBS.
McCoOmB CrrY, Jan. 31st, 1877.
uditor Morning Start
As I told you in a former letter, ground was
broken for a new Catholic church iy this place
lst Easter Monday, under the supervision of a
committee appointed by the Catholic congrega
tion, said committee to be under the immediate
control of our then pastor, Rev. B. A. Neithart,
C.SS9.R., and first Mass was celebrated in the
new church on the 28th of May. Although in
_an unfinished state, it was then the most
earnest wish of our beloved pastor that as soon
as the church would be completed (or nearly
so) to use his utmost endeavors towards hold
ing a mission, believing that manifold bless.
ings would be derived therefrom. On the re
moval to your midst of Father Neithart, Father
Flrle was appointed pastor, and he set to work
1to advance the cause in which his predeocesor
was so enthusiastio.
After a postponement from 'Ootober, the
wishes of the Fathers hare at last been realized,
and MoComb City has just closed her first Ce
thollo mission. I assure you, it has been a
grand success. This is made manifest by the
fact that five years ago there was not the voice
of a Catholic to be heard in this vicinity, now

bers. The .mission, which opened on Sunday,
Jan. 21st, at High Mass, was given by those zeal.

three days, and at 7T P. a. we had instructions,

Blessed Sacrament. In the mornings first Mass
and instructions commenced at 5 o'clock and
ended at 6, enabling the working men to at

9, and, finally, instructions, the Rosary, Sermon
and Benediction at 71 P. M. This same order
was observed every day, the attendance
throughout being very large, on several occa
sions double the seating capacity of the
church. Such was the intense interest mani
tested to hear the learned Fathers, that there
was always a large number of Protestants
On the last nigh 'ather Enright delivered a
most eloquent sermon on Perseverance, after
which he gave the Pontifical Blessing. This
morning, at 5 o'clock, High Mass was celebrated
for the repose of the souls of the friends and
relatives of all who had made the mission.
The choir during the mission was directed by
Prof. L., assisted by his accomplished wife, and
consisted of Miss Nellie .T- n, Mr. S. W- n,
Mr., Mrs. and Miss D-- n, all of whom per
formed their parts with great skill and ability.

LETTER FROM GALVESTON, TEX.
GALVESTON, TEXAS, Feb. 2, 1877.
Editor Morning Star:
I seized an opportunity an evening or two b
since of visiting the beach and taking a moon
light view of the Ursnline Convent. The p
night was lovely, lovelier could not be this r,
side of Paradise. Toe perpetual, melancholy ti
plaint and restless motion of the sea-the glo- ti
slons moon gleaming majestically in the divine- el
ly arched vault above, and snrr,,nnded with al
her myriad stars, were to eme grand exemplifl.
cations of the illimitable p~ower of God. le- d
thinks it must have been on such a Light and ,j
under such circumstances that Croton'di sage, ,,
Pythsagoras, originated his fanciful doctrine of ,
"the music of tho spheres," and was also in
doctrinated in the belief of nn invisible, all- t
pervading, omnipresent, omnipotent God.
Sorely the great philosopher could not have
deduced auce a behef from the mysteries of
the Chaldean or Persian Magi nor from the bc
teachings or writings of his great Chinese ce
contemporary, Counfocin. at
The Convent, not Pythagoras, is my theme. ,
The beautiful structure, its oloistered ipumates to
reposing in nndtstufbed content. looms up be- a
fore me in all the majesty of religious sublimi- GI
ty. And as I ponder the scene, what strango he
fancies seize me and wing toy thoughts to the wi
land of beautiful ruins andl holy fanes, to the of
land of the Round Tower and the Gothic Arch. ,,
Thoss Pillar Towers of Irehdad! how wond'roely fin
they stand l

valleys of the land, M
In mystic file throughout the isle, they reartheir heads M3

does not belong to any of the regular orders b.
known in architecture. The science has beetr G
invested with so many new-faugled technicali- be(
ties that I find myself unable to describe it as tht
intelligently as I could wish. Suffloo it to say Act
that it is a spacious and convenient three story era
brick building, in the form of a block T, doe the
lightfully located on Bath Avenue, and com- goi
manding a magnificent view of the Golf and the
Bay. The grounds are ample (ten acres in ex- doe
tent), and beitig situated in the most pleasant not
part of the island, the surroundings are such and
as tend to promote health and happiness. The uig
building is well ventilated and provided with exe
Bvery convenennce essential to the welfare and Wh
tomfort of its inmates. diet
The Urauline Community is composed of he
ihirteen choir sisters and nine lay sisters. Its scr
Ichools number twenty-six boarders and 140 fing
lay scholars. Its curriculam of studies is ex- coln
enulve, embracing the usual fell academio
ourse. The object kept constantly in view by E
he Ursulinee, here as elsewhere, is the adorn- the
g of young ladiea' minds with knowledge relil
nd the training of their hearts to virtue. brot
The history of the convent here, though ered

THE TOTAL ABSTINENCE ASSOCIATION OF ST.
m- PATRICK's PARISH
Led is in a prosperous condition, and reflects much
us, credit on their beloved pastor, Father Glynn.
Ihe Iis efforts to eradicate the noxious evils en
gendered by indulgence in strong drinks have
see thus far been rewarded with a glorious recom
nd pence. It must indeed afford the good Father
at- great consolation to know that his honorable
assiduity and serious attentions to the tem
at poral and spiritual welfare of his people have
on been productive of such happy results. Sun
icr day, January 21. some twenty-live or thirty
members of the Total Abstinence Association
Ce received Holy Communion in a body. The day
u- was dark and wet and dreary, and devout iin
he deed must be the souls that ventured out in
such weather. The rigors, the darkness, the
' desolation that prevailed had no terrors, nor
re could they deprive those ardent disciples of
S Father Mathew of the Holy Sacrifice of the
Mass nor of Holy Communion. The sanctified
soul of the great Apostle of Temperance, from
Ia ite home beyond the stars, must have looked
er down with heavenly benignity on the fervent
group and exclaimed, " Omnipotent Father,
is bless them !" The good Italian, Father Pagani,
ad tells ous, and truly, that the Mass is the sun of
id the Catholic Church, which dissipates the
olouds, and rejoices heaven; the rainbow of
peace, which appeases the anger of God; the
y golden key, which opens the treasures of hea
id ven's blessings; the mysterious channel,
, through which descends on us the waters of
divine mercy ; the object of God's complacency
r- which calms his wrato and disarms his justice.
y The annual meeting of the Association was
held a few days since, and resulted in the elec
tion of the following officers to serve for the
ensuing year: P. Fitzwillisam. President; Wm.
Hart, Vice President; D. W. Baker, Recording
Secretary; Peter O'Donnell, Financial Secre
tary; Pat Carville, Treasurer; Thomas Gra
ney, Morshal; Edward Biggins, Sergeant-at
Arms. The President, if I mistake not. is a
0 brother of our estimable townsman, T. Fitz
I willian, .:-q , stationer, Camp street. Mr.
e P. Fitzwilliam sustains hbore an excellent
8 reputattou-s reputation combining unuques
S tionable honesty, capacity, probity. His posi
tive qualities, unflinching firmness and en
ergy, pre-eminently qualify him for the duties
of the position he has assumed. In this letter
I will tot advert to any more of the solid Ca
SIhlies here, as I atm determined at an early I
day to acquaint your teittere with the many
mren of worth and mnld to be f..und in thia
]lanrl Cit. t
]laving noticed inl the G(lveston Net's that
the ltilies of :'it. Patrick's Altar Society snr
prised Father Gilyen in a pleasing Iltannler, by
presenting hint wilth a fall suit of vestments, t
I called on bis reverence, and foound him at c
borne, silently happy. lie, with quaint con
ceit, showed nme the vestments; the Dalmatto t
are superb, and the Chasuble superlatively so. P
I verily believe there is nothing Io the Suttlh a
to equal them: they must have cost in B:I- c
gium about $150. I would suggest to F.ither
Glynn the impropriety of wearing them until rt
he can otliciate in his new church. I trust it c
will prove no embarrassment to the god ladies u
of St. ratrick' ,parish, who so conpicuously I,
exerted themiselves in bhalf of ther pastor, to Ii
find their nat.es in the MoIuiNIe Sralt. Those p
estitiabl, ladies are: Mrs. Beck, Mrs. Gaftoey,
Mrs. llesell, Mrs. Patterson and Mrs. Cotter. u:
My objlict is prodminently suggestive. I woild

n Groeso has depended for Its communications
& with the seaboard upon the La Plata and its
it great confluents; and while river navigation
o was suspended by hostilities, the mails from
n that remote district required a month to reach
e Rio Janeiro. For a time, however, the Go,v
o ernment was deterred by the vastness of the
a undertaking, since it seemed impracticable to
d run an iron, road from the Atlantei coast to the
a head waters of the Paraguay, through a terri
- tory inhabited by savage tribes and out by in
f numerable broad rivers. But since the socoess

The project submitted by an English engi
neer, Mr. William Lloyd, contemplates only
that portion of the new transeontinental line
which would lie within Brazilian territory.
His road would start from Curitiba, the capital
of the province of Parana, which will soon be
connected by a railway now building with the
harbor of Paranagua. From this point to
Miranda in the province of Matto Gresso the
distance to be traversed would approximate a
thousand miles. The natural resources of this
wide region are said to be astonishing. Ac
cording to Lloyd, who seems to have pereon
sonally surveyed the route, the junction of the
Ivahy and Ivinheima with the majestic Parana,
within earshot of the famous Seven Falls, the
Niagara of Brazil, most one day become the
site of a great commercial emporium, perhaps
the most important in the Interior of South
America. Nor does his assertion appear all
founded when glancing at the map we note the
number of large riveis which radiate from this
centre presenting an aggregate of some fifteenu
hundred miles to navigation. It isan interest
ing fact that the country between the upper
Parana and the coast, although now a wilder
ness of rank and almost impenetrable vegeta
tion, was once populous and cultivated. Here
dwelt a civilized race of Indians, the so-called
Guarany tribe, who were converted by the
Jesuits, and formed, in the sixteenth century,
a curious theocratic republic. The somewhat
impressive rains of their capital city are said
to be still standing, but since 1631, when
the whole nation migrated to escape the
periodic slave hunts organized by the Portu
guese planters, their domain' had not been
visited by any white man, with the exception
of the Spanish traveler Azara, for upward of
The second plan, which appears, on the
whole, to have the better chance of adoption,
has in view a continuous road from a Brazilian
port through Bolivia and the southern part of
Peru to the Pacific. Like the route suggested
by Lloyd, this trunk line would begin at the
harbor of Paranagna and, passing thence to
Curitiba, proceed in a northwesterly direction
to Miranda. From this point the road would
trend northward to Cuyaba, and there fork
abruptly toward the Bolivian town of Caliso.
The railway would now lie in Brazilian ter, i
tory and traverse for a considerable distance a
district at present occupied only by Indians.
Bit from Pirapeti to Chuquisaca it would tap
the richest and most populous provinces of
Bolivia. Finally, from the latter city the lin,
would follow the valley of Laeo Paria and
push on to Carocaro, where it would connect
with the railway alteady building ifromT Ilay,
in t.he Pacitio, to Arequipa and La P..z. The
otai lenigth of the proposed road from the 1,
ttlantic to the South Pacific woutld fall a little
lhort of three thb,liauasd miles.
'Ihis South American PaciLio Railway seems
i proeent no engineering d;fliculties at all
rourparable to thosoe cnc otered in the Sierra
vurvdas. On the other hand, with the excep
ton of a short etre'ch in the Andes, the region
ipened would be foundl everywhere productive
rd often ofounparalleled fertility. Under these
ircumstances, English iuvestors, who will
