JOSEPH'S PARISH. stre the Laying of the Corier-Stone of the New it p Church. er thry IMPOSING CEREMONIES. dial tot Sunday, October 8, 1871, marks an era in me, the history, not only of the Parish of St. knc Joseph, but in that of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. That day had been chosen s w by the Rev. T. J. Smith for the blessing and noi laying of the corner-stone of the colossal dre edifice which the Lasarist Fathers are now stri building for the honor and glory of Him I who bath given us all. And well was the wal day chosen, for a brighter, lovelier one, sto even'during this, our beautiful Indian sum- hea mer, had never dawned. All nature seemed rea to smile upon an undertaking which sprung hai from so holy a motive, and which will his prove of such incalculable benefit to man- crc kind. eve At an early hour of the day men, women foe and children, in their holiday attire, and thi with faces beaming with joy, began to an throng the immediate neighborhood of the ha' new church, and by three o'clock the Mc streets surrounding it seemed a living mass foe of human beings. Nor iwas the occasion di, unworthy of this grand demonstration.- i Laying the corner-stone of a church is an an event which should always be hailed by p Catholics with joy and gladness, for it is a ev sign of the progress of our Holy Religion, e at well as of the zeal and energy of the th faithful-but on this day was to be laid the hi corner-stone of a church vast in its design, solossal in its proportions, surpassing in size and grandeur any like edifice in these f Southwestern States and rivaling in its hi magnificence many of those glorious struc- e tares which now dot the face of Europe- el memorials of the faith and piety of our ancestors. Then, too, the presence of our most venerable and learned Archbishop, hi with numbers of the Rev. clergy of the city, and the magical name of the Rev. A. R J. Ryan, of Mobile, whose fame as a poet and orator has reached every quarter of the a globe where the English language isipoken, g as the name of him who was to deliver the I sermon, could not fail to appreciate, im measurably, the interest already felt by our I citizens, r This was the easce, this the event, which C filled every heart with gladness and which e drew ten thousand Catholics and Protest- t ants, from every part of the city, together on this memorable occasion. THE rROCESSIOiN. A few minutes before three o'clock sev eral Branches of the Hibernian Benevolent and Mutual Aid Association, which had met at the corner of Royal and Canal streets, were joined by Branch No. 3, of St. Joseph's Parish, as an escort, and marched to the old church, where they were joined by His Grace, Archbishop Perche, and the 1ev. clergy. The proces sion, in the following order, then marched up Common street to the new church: Marshal, James McKeon, assisted by Messrs. W. J. Kelly and W. H. Byrnes. Hibernian Benevolent and Mutual Aid Association, with several bands of music. St. Stephen's Society, from the Sixth District. Delegates from the several Conferences of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Boys of St. Vincent's Home. Boys of the Parochial School, under the charge of the Christian Brothers, headed by their band. Girls of the Parochial School, under the Sisters. The Rev. clergy of the city, with whom were the Rev. Fathers A. J. Ryan and E. Lorrigan, of Mobile. His Grace, N. J. Perche, Archbishop of bla' New Orleans, in a carriage. As the procession moved up Common bsh street, through the dense masses of people, and the bands playing and banners high in air, this it presented a most striking appearance. o When it reached the church, the mem- and bers of the various -clations filed in ht through the arch of the foundation, imme- wot diately under where the grand entrance is hes to be, on to the walls on either side. Im- and mediately over this arch was the well- ohb known expression of Irish hospitality- pro Cead mille failthe. see " which conveys from Celtic lips the over- bri flowing abundance of the heart in its ' hun- len dred thousand welcomes' to the unknown of stranger as well as to the oft-tried friend." to t His Grace, preceded by the clergy, then des walked through the long line of men who wit stood on either side of the sidewalk with thu heads uncovered, to the platform over the We rear portion of the foundation, on which hem had been erected a spasious pavilion for his reception. The platform was densely hu crowded with ladiei and gentlemen, men f even crowding the tops of the walls of the Wt foundation, which are at least two feet in to thickness, all eagerly awaiting the appear- crc ance of Father Ryan. At length, ailence th having been restored, Father Cornelius cot Moynihan, of St. Peter's Church,' stepped any forward and introduced that distinguished divine in the following words: ne Ladies and Gentlemia.--On great and import- ik ant occasions like this, it has always been Ea customary to formally introduce the orator or preacher of the day. I do not believe, how- fai ever, that the introduction of the orator of this evening is necessary, because there is not a c man, woman or child in the Southern States of Je this country who is not well acquainted with of his name. There is not a house nor a hamlet up. in the whole South in which the name of ca " Moina" is not familiarly known. lo' During the eventful period from 1860 to 1865, ki when dissension, civil warfltre mid strite af- I flicted our unhappy country, "Moiuna," with y s his pen and with his poetic gonina, made the am sentiments of the South known from North to de South, and from East to West, in'stirring and HI - eloquent verse. An introduction, I repeat, of es the orator of the day, is, therefore, unnecessa- tit ry; and, in order to be brief, and not to keep ti r this vast multitude in suspence, waiting to in hear his silvery tongue, I will present to you, it without further comment, the author of the an a immortal "Conquered Blanner~, Rev. A. J. w Ryan, of Mobile. bi t Father Ryan's appearance was greeted t e with thunders of applause. His sermon, as tt ,, given below, is copied from the Times of a e Monday, a few alterations of palpable er- t rors having been made by ouraeplves, as the a ir Rev. gentleman could not find time, da ring his short stay in the city, to revise it. ( h On the whole the report is a passably good . *h one,.though the connection seems to have t- been entirely broken in many places. FATIItER RYAIN'S SERMON. My Dearly Belored Christian ,rieds :-I shabll read to you the official words laid down by the Catholic Church in the laying of a corner r- stone, and I shall make those words the text from which I shall say a very few words. nt " In the faith of Jesus Christ we lay this, ad His stone, in this foundation, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; that here the true faith may flourish in of the fear-of God and fraternal charity, and to od let this place be destined for prayer and for the invocation and calling on the name of the eY same Lord, Jesus Christ, who, with tihe Father op and the Holy Ghost, liveth ana reigneth, God forever and forever. Amen." ,s_ I have been introduced toyou, my dearly bo ed loved Christian friends, as one connected with the "Conquered Banner"; I stand before you now as a member of that imperial army which by holds aloft before the world an unconquered and unconquerable blanner-the banner of the Cross. And if there be any men on earth id who have the right to plant that ban ner and beside it stand and preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified, it is the priesthood th of the Holy Catholic Church. Hence, wher ever we go-and there is not a land beneath the son that is not marked by the prints of our feet, and watered by the tears from our eyes and the blood from our bodies-wherever we go we plant the cross of Jesus Christ and Hlim crucified, and, standing beneath that cross, we the preach the old sermon, the everlasting ser ed mon, the sermon with all of eaven's graces and all of life's woes and wants and sunlerings in it. We tell you of nothing new ; we are not the the men of yesterday: we trace our lineage heck through the ages gone by-bck even to the cross of Jesus Chrtst. Ifwep lantthocross tom now, it is because we have brought it from S. Calvary itself. Therefore it is by a right that does not come to us from human concession or earthly privilege, bat by a right based on a di vine commislion' by a right based upon our has history, by ight based upon an eternal privi- ape lee to confront he world and tell itthat for ts wh saivation it must kneel and kiss the feet of Jesus our Christ. by a right based upon all that is sacnored cen and all that is holy, that we this evening bring con this place under the domuiniot-and into the roy- you alty, of Jesus Christ. Snob is our mission, and aro suchis our destiny. This church will be built, B and will be a home and habitation of God to the many of you. Perhaps, however, someof yo w ete, with pride and independenceof spuirit, feel would cast the old faithlaslde to take to your se# hearts what men call-know-ledge, and would mil trample under foot the tradaitons of the past, the and make the old truth step down and make its blo obeeqalots bow and take the hand of this nine- frol teenth century, and you would effect a com- II promise between Christ and the world. Do you per see these vestments that we wear? We won and them in fair battle from the Pagans, and we any bring them down consecrated and holy, redo- as lent with glorious scenes and gloriousi-6mories Hol of the past. In the very ceremony of this His afternoon, down from the heart of David come one to us the olden psalms, and as symbolical of the dead yet living Christ, we clothe our church in the shroud of an old dead language; and thus, a r with old prayers and old psalms, we will, on of this propitipus evening, lay the corner-stone of this vast edifice. We are all men of the past. We come to you with words of truth out of the w. heart of the old Gospel, from the very foot Voi of the cross. We are the only men that can face the present; we bring to you no more phi human opinion, which is but a shifting sand, ei whereas your soul demands, in the storm swept sea of this world, a rock to lean upon. thi We have the great past back of us; we come a to you from that great Good Friday evening with the shadow of that Good Friday 'a cross upon our hearts, with .the truth of sia that Good Friday's cross on our -lips, and hi. we plant that Good Friday's cross in the corner-stone of this building this evening; and when this vast edifice shall have been fr completed, through your generosity, and your children shall enter it, they will hear nothing sit new. What care we for anything new T Is the ph sky new T Is the sun new i Is the earth new ? Everything grand is old; everything grand is th ancient, and all new ideas are like sg much pr foam breaking against the foot of the cross. Again, I say, we have the right to plant that cross, for it is we that have borne it down fron t Jesus Christ even unto now. Other men--men pe of the present, who wear a modern dress and speak a modern language, and teach what is called "modern truth," but which you will a:- St low ime to call modern opinion,-melu of this tii kind lay the corner-stones of their edifices. tuit I ask them by what right can you do so l)d de you beur the cross down arong the nationc* and the peoplesof the world t Did youn pla:t it deep down in the soil of the humlan heat I Have you preac h,ed.it from that GCuo Friday ' evening down to..tb present day T Hase ye*' never faltered in 'i preaching t Ye miay lot co the corner-stones of your earthly edilicis: : ,, th iany substitute your earthly opinions for cter- tl nat truth andgive them to men in, order to satisfy the craving of their hearts, lint with di which they will sot be salistied; you may it build your churches; but we, who have faced the world through so many ages, will face it still. Do you think we fear you f Do you think our hearts are tremulous f Do you detect a shade of fear on our cheeks ? Do you discover a pallor on our brows? Why do we face the world so bodily? Because back of us is a strength which has supported us for eighteen hundred years, a strength which is above, and beneath, and around us-the strength of Jesus c Christ himself. Hence the application of the words in the ceremony of laying a corner-stone "In the faith of Jesus Christ." That is what e we bring to the world when we build a local habitation for a sacramental God. We bring I to the world, not the shifting sands of human opinion, but a strong rock, which is the cross I of Christ. My Church, which is garlanded with a crown of thorns-a crown that never fades, while garlands of flowers do fade-my t Church, which has endured through the mightiest and most cruel persecutions that humap tyranny could deviso-my Church,that ,f has *alked across eighteen hundred years, over thorns and in tears, and whose feet are u not tired yet--my Church, that has preached ofor eighteen centuries, whose voice stall rings r with the same old silvery sound as clearly aus , before, and whose words have as deep meaning sr as ever-my Church faces you to-day. If you sit love us, we deserve your love. It is not a mere compliment you pay us-it is a debt of justice. c. If you hate as, we accept your hatred, for th our Church, of all churches, is the one that > incites the deepest and darkest hatred, as well h as the deepest and intensest love. Here, eh in this land of the sunset, in this beautiful be Southern land, in this land whose banner of th political independence has been furled, but un- furled, let me hope, only for a time-here we us wave a banner which has never been trailed od in the dust-a banner which has waved over r-. many a kingdom and many a nation that have th crumbled intoruins and into dust. We do not or carry this banner for our own personal profit. es We priests could save our own sunls; but it is we our province to go down amtong you, and im teach your hearts the words of truth. We we must spihak to you of Him before whom every er- thing on earth and is heaven and under the ces earth must bow. We lay the corner-stone for Igo this building, not forour personal nluterest, but tot for the interest, supreme and sublime, of youear e immortal souls. Those of you who have to gathered here to-day to assist in the ceremony oss of laying this corner-stone, with feelings of .o reverence and fervor, are welcome; those of hat you who have come through curiosity are also or welCome. The Catholic Church is always a di- caribus thing. It wears a strange aspect; it bas the face of a pilgrim; and when it talks it cent speaks in the language of eternity itself. Ye hig who have come here neither in fervor nor in 19 f nuriosity, are also welcome. It is not a aere eros cempliment that you pay to my churel i is tr coming here; but it is a debt of respect t-t pros you owe to it for planting and preaching the pose crow of Christ. tern Brethren and friends, I regret that the Ca- of 11 tholio Church speaks this evening through so to ai weak an organ. I would wish that my words, eros feeble as they are, might be heard in every Thiu section of the country, and that wherever they lowe might fall they would leave a seed of truth on and the soil of the human heart, and take root and app blossom and fructify into eternal,- life.giving fruit. sha In the name of Father Smith, who you are, wit perhaps, not aware was an old teacher of mine, saen and to whom I owe all the acquirements, if cona any I have, also in the name of all the priests Jose assembled ; and, better still, in the same of the the Holy Catholic Church and of Jesus Christ. and atot Him crucified, I thank you all for your pres- sopi ence and attention this evening. coin It Is almost impossible to give an idea of beae a real oration, through a mere verbal report hex of its language. Its intellectual life is dit there, but much of that subtler life of soul coa which dwells in the glanep, the tone,of colt voie, the -lectrio action, can never be for photographed on paper. This remark is the especially applicable to the oratory of Fa- beii tbenRtyan. There is a melody in his voie, stree a distinctness-of articulation carrying his a words to a wonderful distance, that greatly tist aid him nto weaving that magic spell which ste his heavers invariably feel. g The corner-stone was to be placed at the froe front angle nearest the corner of Derbigny It street, at a considerablq distance from the stel platform. The Archbishop, escorted by lbo the clergy and laity, therefore, moved in tab procesaittn to that point. Mounting the aim steps which conducted-to the chosen spot, na the procession of clergy opened its ranks, of permitting His Grace to pass through, ac- t o ,mpanied by Rev. Fathers Raymond, pot Smith and Jeremiah Moynihan. During acc the usual imuposing ceremonial a box was on deposited in the corner-stone, containing a on number of documents. There was a copy n I of the Freeman's Journal, New cYork Tablet, tin New Orleans Times, Picayuane and 1Republi- i, can, Propagateer, MORNING STArl and (a- an tholic Almanac, also a list of the names of Ie the building committee.
