W iafee to y, geneg- s ally, that the whole the poplicy onof b Ireland, lay d cleric, is enchanted at foi the prospe of success fo e project. fei They m be unduly biased by t fact of da their ing th arties who.iave to pa he en ous taxes so much complained of, ba eitexpeqenee has extended ovetsonuy ny generations, that they ought to have bad an eiknces of viewin -the question id a good wl many different ~ ilts by this time. sti The ToaMet fears that the destruction of ag the Establishment will be the removal of do an important break-water; that though c undertaken id the name of religious liberty, s1h it will really be consummated in the inter- po eat of Infidelity. It prefers Protestantism th to Atheism. ye It is unnecessary to discuss the question or whether Protestantism or Infidelity is the more formidable antagonist of the Faith. There is room to believe that Catholicity pe would make short. wrk of Infidelity were ib it not-for the powerful enemy in its own rg camp calledProtestantism, and that this wl latter is far more of a breastwork for Infi- se delity against the conquering iidvance of Catholicity, than the other way. ve But supposing it granted that heresy is pr less objectionable than unbelief, is it worth se the price peeessary for its maint.enance in p Ireland Is there such imminent danger pc in that country from the aggressive spirit in of Civism that the Churoh- need advocate tb the perpetuation of heresy as a protection Pi for itself 1 It would appear that there is tl rot much left for Infidelity to do. It can- w not attempt to secularize education more to thoroughly than Protestantism has done in a this country, and the disendowment of yi Maynooth seems about the_ only event gi Wh-ici is really to be dreaded. ye The evil of the Establishment is patent and appreciable; that expected from an ev- p franchised Civism might never occur. The t oppressive burden of ecclesiastical taxes is o0 a matter of daily moment; it fills the land I1 with poverty and woe, but if it should be a remnoved, and Protestantism left to disap-. pear by decay, it-is by no means certain that the spirit of Infidelity would impose v burdens equally as heavy upon the people. I1 Irreligion never has the popularity of l even a false religion. During moments of z phrensy it may sway the mob to violence a and wrong, but it has no permanent infin- f ence with a people at large. Its oppressive I measures would be far less sure of popular I support than those of a dominant religion strengthened by the fanaticism of deluded a followers. Public wrong must be perpe- I trated under thoe influence of a certain mis- 1 guided enthusiasm, and Irreligion has no enthusiasm. Its tyranny would appeal to i no sympathy of the masses, and they would I soon revolt at its cold philosophy. At any rate, it wouild be hardly just to 1 rate so high the evils which may or may I not accompany a succeeding regime, as to L prefer retaining the present system with its I ills which are crushing and ineAtable. No! Questions of policy are involved in uncer tainty; questions of right or wrong are sus I ceptible of an infallible solution. We know r that the Protestant endowment in Ireland is an outrage and a crime; Let -it pass. Let us not timidly shrink from a phantom future, which will recede as we approach. B . TnE HBERnNIAN BaNSVOLENT AssocIA toN.-TWe are glad to congratulate this excellent Association upon its rapid pro f gress to the highest success. We are in formed that every meeting sees the list of n members increased by the addition of ft ifteen or twenty names, and these, too, of the right kind. This Association bids fair to become one of great importance and utility. It can and will make its influence felt in the affairs of this city, and gain for * itself an honorable place in its history. In a place like New Orleans, composed of Slarge replresentations from so many nation si altica, it es attural that associations of this disitinctive character should spring up, and they have done so in every direction. Why mrlee of the largc.st and most energetic cle , ticlltts of our lplulation should not display 't i same atlinitics, is hard to understaud.

The Rsefe takes you a no the corner, where, within a doorless hove, your eye rests up.on acne of pallid pov- - erty, of mute despair. jm These are the-two pictures. of Protestantism points to the material pros; ti perity of great Britain, as the one irresist- fo ible proof ofits genuine Christianity.

To be sure, the Parliament of the present glprions Protestant era, could not. say so imnues o fh the dispirited, poverty-stricken laborer, vi with four or five pale and hungry children to feed and clothe on "two or three dollars a week," but it can say to him -look upon your country's flag, which waves in arro gant triumph over every sea, and forget your cares and your hunger. t Protestantism triumphs in its worldly prosperity. It is the religion of wealth and d temporal success. It considers them a fruit of holiness and a test of the true Faith. It sits at the sumptuous table with Dives, t and looks upon Lazaruswith his sores as an t outcast from the true fold of Abraham. Many persons are silent before this vaunting of Protestant progress; they ' know not how to answer, yet the human heart is not filled by a bauble which daz zles the eye. Men may not reply, but they are not therefore convinced. The poor man feels .within himself that poverty can well be couplhid'with virtue, and the rich- man knows in his secret heart that wealth is-not always the reward of merit. Thus the splendid sophism falls without an answer the controversy is lost :without an oppo nent. It is really pitiable to hear-the constantly recurring appeal of a religion to its ma I terial triumphs for endorsement. It is pain ful to see this persistent effort to identify o the Kingdom of Christ with that of the r World. Nowhere does Christianity prom s ise temporal rewards as one of its results. a In the-lives of individuals, we constantly see the best and holiest men undistinguish ed for wealth, honors or influence, while riches and station have surrounded with all R the ciroumstance of pomp and luxury men t whose names are synonymous with oppres . siopp avarice and sensuality. n The lives of men are the history of na '* tions. The great empires of antiquity-the Persian, Grecian, Roman--marched to the most splendid conquests at the bidding of soothsayers and pagan oracles, while their no less brilliaint triumphs of literature and art were made votive offerings on the shrines of false gods. Was it the impul Ssion of the tfae Faith that developed the Swild haunts of Romulus and Remus into ir the magnificent city which sat beside the d Tiber and ruled the world; which built the *e pyramids while the children of Abraham were in slavery; which expanded the clan of Mahomet into a splendid empire equally of pre-eminent in literature and in war7 R- All histdi'y, individual and national, is shows that faith does not ally .itself with id temporal prosperity, though it shows ,y equally well that the prosperity -which c- comes without Faith is a hollow deception. sy its wealth is vice, Its power is opplession, . its glory is cruelty. It presents a splendid on exterior to lover the secrets of its corrup a- tion and dicontent. Every such country n. has two family pictures-one which it ys vaunItiigly parades to the public, while the ad other must be uncovered to be seen. ers Thus it is now with Protestant Englpand. be The Athenaum hastens to call attention to the one which flattes ; the Review has not L he region tonbucomm .e oe io thet r, pe wia sb ... , to a ai -, ... r this ntparise and *oireei remarkaible moannn n't f .sL e .uia now, every.evidence-of the awamp has Sred and architectural r i t o the region to by us lwills iThe pof.n omniba afw tea a ond thre cet asa. fluxof population which rapidly biLt up the wild suburb into a auli4rooea q~l er.

SThe devout worshiper who left its portals one day, might have returned the next,,to find nothingbfat vasnt spaeWitbout even the riins of a sueden destructier .Th whole building was removed to anothbk part of the square, more suitable to its ay modest pretensions, thus making room for the splendid edifice which Father Moynihan is about to erect to the worsalp of God.. e It is said by those who' have seen the n plans and model of the proposed church, that it will be a splendid specimen of ee eo clesistjcal architecture, and a redit.o_the he city. The mere fact of the old cehuchiav ing been removed, gives an -earnest of Father Jeremiah's determination to com mence the campaign with the earliest open ing of spring. The sinews of wag will hardly be wanting, as any one will bes as a- sured who knows the indomitable energy in- and wonderful success of the Rev. pastor y of that parish in providing ways and means for his daring enterprise.
