Clarence Wilworth's defection from the Catholic Church. The Garette went even so far as to state why the apostacyoo curred, the reasons thereof. And yet, the truth is that Rev. Clarence Walworth, si far from relapsing into error, has so edified . the Church authorlties that he lhas been presented to and approved by the oly oa ther for his orthodoxy and purity and seal as Bishop of Syracuse, New York-for which See he is soon to be consecrated its first bishop.-Olscdaaati Telegraph. IL T. Walwbrth and Dr. Dollinger. The .letta ist of the 2d insfeet. contains a cltvcrly written letter fronm Mr. M. F. Walworth, in which he boldly avows his desertion of the Pope and hisl adhesion to Dr. Dollinger and the Alt Katholicks of Bavaria. The letter is rather long for osr columns, but we cannot forbear laying.it before our readers, as a curiosity in its way: Messrs. Editors:-According to the New York 2imes, of November 12th, 1871, the Methodist s :We know of not a single prominent clerical or la Catholie in the repnubtlio who has dared Sopenly to Join In the noble protest of Dollinger andl his assocites."Y The termpramisst is susceptible of several construootions. Se If the tollowing description answers to that term: My fatherwasithe late Chancellor Walwortb, ef New York Stan, for twenty years the Chief Judge of the Court of Chancery here. Shortly before bein admitted to prantlee law in the courts of ths State and the United States I became a convert to the Roman Catholic Church. In order intelligently to speak my new faith, I purchbased a library of Catholic standard authorities, several hundred volumes. They were the works of eminent theologians, dogmatio treatises, churobh histories of unques tioned authority - among them Dollinger's Church History, Mobler's Symbolism, Bishop England's works, Lingard's works, and, in deed, all first-class standard authorities, such as Roman Catholic prelates and the more aso complishebd of the clergy in this country place upon their library shelves. I made myself perfectly familiar with the dogmas of the hurcb the scriptural authorities and the tra ditiona of the Church upon which they were founded. The cogent reasons which induced me to connect myself with the Church of Rome were, that other-churches were constantly changing their dogmas, and that truth, divine truth,I must of its own nature be unchangeable. I was instroucted that I had joined a Churl whicbh held one set of dogmas, from the days of Christ to the and of all time, and whiah, being the Church established by Our Saviour, could not teach in one age and to one genera tion of men what it did not teach in another; that whatever dogmas a man of the first cen tory proclaimed as the dogmas of his Church, I must be each and all the same dogmas that a man of the nineteenth century announced as his dogmu. It was reasonable to belloeve that no more doctrines could be required of the latter than of the former. The Christian of the frst century did not.i believe in the infallibility of the Bishop of Rome; the American Catholics of 1860 did not 4 believe in the infalliblity of the Roman Pon- 4 tif. It was not taught to him, nor did be be lieve it. Ig 1871 it is taught to him. and if he does not believe it he cannot have Christian ( burial. Thus the good Catholic who died in i 1860 held just one doctrine less than the good. Catholio of 1871 holds when he passes into the presenoe of hbl Creator. Is this unityof faitth I Is this belonging to an unchangeable Church ? < I have been a member of the Roman Catholic I Church for eighteen years. I published my irst work as an author in defenceof the Roman I Catholie Religion. The book, "The Mision o of Death; or, a Tel. of the New York Penal 1 Laws of 1741," has pessed through many editions, and Is to-day a living book, ne editions isuing yearly. aud it can be found on the shelves of manoy colleges, ceourvts and i schools of the Catholio Cnurch in America. 1 wrote tbat book to in8uence othere to join an 4 unchangeable Church. The noohangeable Church has chanced since I wrote that book. When I wrote that book I denied the infalli bility of the Bishop of Rome. and avowed my belief in the infallibility.of the assembled Bishops of the world defining articles of faith. I wa at perfect liberty to do so. If I were to do it toads I should he deolared a heretio and refused Christian borial. But I do doeny the infallibility of the Bishop ofboms,jout as I denied is then; jnat aAroh bishbp Purcell, of Cincinnati, denied it; just as the learned, the great Roman Catholic Church historisu, Dclii uer, denias it.

Mr. Walworth is a layman, and claims to have been aprominent Catholic, and a dis Stinguaished Catholio author. His father was a prominent man and a distinguishedjarist, his brother-the Ret. Clarence A.rWalworth, is a prominent Catholic, a priest, and an able and polished writer. But Mansfeld has never been known as apromineat Cath olice layman, and his pretensions to have been a Catholio author are very slenoder. He has written and published several novels, bnt rather anti-Poritanical than Catholio.in spirit or tone, and better fitted to encourage a free, rollicking life, than Catholic faith and -plety. In his "Lola," there are some Catholic characters intro dauced, as well as a caricature of his own father; in his " Hotapur," there is nothing to indicate that it was written by a Catho ie. There are none of his works which are pervaded by a Catholic spirit, unless it be his " Mission of Death :" none of them are as truly Catbolic in doctrine, morality, tone or tendency, as "Merton House," recently concluded in Appleton's Journal. He has always seemed to us as a writer to be one who has conformed rather than been converted to the Church. All his bopks, that we have read, have disap pointed us, and have struck us as far in ferior to what the writer might andchwould have produced, had he been in earnest and done his best We .do not think he has ever been distingaluished among Catholics as a Catholic anthor. Mr. Walworth speaks of the library he e of stantdard-Catholic works. Un happily, he names not a single work that is a standard authority on the question on which he disagrees with the Pope and the Council of the Vatican. He seems to have studied his theology-in a bad school, and to have plistalen the opinions of some Catholics, not expressly ndengned by the Church, as the faith of Church, thnus confounding seteneuia in Ecci witje sea tentie ecclesiao. The Gallican inion was an opinion in the Church, but w never a doctrine of the Church. Mr. Wlworth was never taught it as Catholic faith, but at most, only as an opinion, which the Church had never explicitly condemned, and therefore an opinion which he might hold as an opinion, but not aCatholic faith. Mr. Walworth says, "The Christian of the first century did not believe in the in fallibility of the Bishop of Rome."- On what authority does he assert that Uow does he know thatt "The Pope and the Conncill of the Vatican teaches to the con trary. How does he know that they are wrong and he right. The American Cath olic of 1860 did not believe in the infialli bility of the Roman Pontiff. It was not Staught tohim, nor did he believe it." We know nothing of American Catholisea, though we know some very worthy Catholic Americans. Catholicityknows no national distinctions, and has nothing to do with them. Catholic Americans in 1860, as Ca tholics throughout the world, were taught that, whether the Pope is infallible or not is a question not yet formally decided by the infallible authority, and no written opinion can, pending the litigation, be pro nounced orthodox or heterodox. Gallican Ism, to say the least, was nowhere taught or permitted to be held as Catholic faith, and no one ever pretended that the so-called Ultramontane doctrine had been explicitly and implicitly condemned as repugnant to the faith. Mr. Walworth is a lawyer. The dispute has been carried up to the Sanpreme Court, and decided. Does he pretend that the decision of the court has changed the law that in declaring what the law is and tways rfis- beenti-a the point disputed, it introduced a new law If so,God help his clients. The decision of the case in litigation by the court of last resort, every lawyer know., simply declares and applies the law, makes what before has been uncertain, known and certain and closes the question, which henceforth is res adjudicata, and it would be ridiculous to pretend that the de cision of the court h6ad changed the law and made that to be law which was not iqw be fore. The most that can be said is, that the decision settles that to be law which wse not certainly known to be law before its de cision. Well, the question In dispute con cerning the Papal infallibility has been carried up to the BSpreme Court of the Church and decided, and decided in favor of infallibility, and oar legal friend steps gravely forward, and says the court, be cause it has settled the law, that is, the faith has made that to be faith in 1871 which was not faith in 1860. He then de oounces the coart, that is, the Church, as ehangeable, and no longer unchangeable as he had believed her. Time Church, in the desintion Impugned, declares that the infallibility of the pope in the soeno defloed has always been the doo trioo of the Church. and has always been Catholic faith. To prove that she has changed the faith or introduced new faith, it is necessary to sbow that she has pre viously taught or declared the contrary to be of Catholic faith. Does our lawyer, who arraigns the defnition, show or attempt to show a contrary de8nition or deciesion? Not the lesat io the world. All be alleges or can allege is that on a debated qlieition he is no longer free to deny that to be law which he considered himself free to deny before the deaision of the court. Suppose the court had decided in 4ii favor instead of agaist him? The Pope and Coulnil, that is, the court of last resort, has decided that the infalli bility of the P. the assistance of the Holy. .a*A e rli stdra mat k ,94 eaorlas, and always h bees, ieilded ia Osthlole faith,'or this doetrine of tble Churb. Consequently. it has never been )whl to deny itS, and Gal lleanisa was, n aetaiilways a heresy; what theologians all mIieiw1 heresy, and could sever have beoen asirtd without incurring isToro conseeleafe, the ails of heresy, un less excused by iavtnelble Ignorance; bu not in the exterior M~m, because prior to the 18th of Jaly, 10, there was no canon of the Churob explictly condemning it. Why the Chtch did not condemn it ex licitly sooner, she has told us, and we ave no right tpeak her for her reasons. Possibly her reasons are prudential, like those ofthe bishops who in the Council of the Vatican opposed, not the doctrine, but the definition. She has thought it best so longu Gallica) accepted and promptly obeyed the Papal Constitution, to leave them in good faith, and not to change their material heresy into formal heresy. Mr. Walworth does not appear to be aware of the distinction between material heresy and formal, but seems to suppose that there is heresy only in the denial of what the Church has explicitly and formally defined to be dejide, and as no definitions are made of any article or proposition of faith till it is controverted, we see not, if his supposi tion be true, how there can ever be either faith or iheresy. On his theory an infallible and unchangeable Church could never de olde any controversy. Archbishop Purcell opposed the defini tion in the Council, as did a number of other prelates, as inopportone, inexpedi ent, or unnecessary. not the doctrine itself. Mr. Walworth, by hlis own principlaesor the Catholicity he accepted when he conformed to the Church. is bound to accept Papal in fallibility, fprheadmits that he was taught that the fallibility of the Church is ex pressed by General Councils, and this defi nition is certainly made in a General Coun cils. Te attempt toevadettiis by 8ontend log that the definition was not made by the free action of the assembled bishops, that they were even forced by the Pepe, and intrigues and factious proceedings of the Jesuits, to make it, is perfectly idle, and to forget that General Concils are guided and assisted by the Holy Ghost. The Pope exercised no restraintla but such as Popes iave always exercised over Generiif Coun cils, far les, than some of them, St. Greg ory X., for insatance, in the Second General Councilof Lyons; and the factions and in trigues of the Jesuite were not, at worst, more effective than the inflauence of the Emperor Marcian, and the Imperial Court at Chalcedon. All definition in General Councils are usually made by the Pope, who presides in person,-the-Sacred Council approving, and no acts of a Council not approved by the Pope have any legal value, for the Chiurchbs Papal, not simply Epis copal. If the Council of the Vatican was not (Ecumenical, there *ever was an tEec meaical Council, and if the definition of Papal infallibility is invalid, no act of any Council can be proved to be valid and bind ing on the faithful. Mr. Walworth says Dr. Dollinger is right, and of course, the Pope and Council are wrong, and as a brave man and a "free American citizen, lie will stand by him and the Alt Kathblikse. But we would remind him that he cannot do so, and still pretend even to belong to the old Catholic Church. The Catholic Church has always been gov erned by the Pope, and bishops, and more over, has always, since St. Peter erected his chair in the city of Rome, recognized the Roman Church as the " mistress and mother of all the chnrches." Your Alt Katholiks do not recognize the authority of the Roman Church; they have neither Pope nor bishops, and no means or authori ty to reproduce either, and they are and can be at best only Presbyterians, not so much even as Eptscopalians. Besides Dr. Dollinger holds, whas is certainly an inno vation, that the Church, even Popes and Councils, must be governed by a body of learned and scientifico men, thus making the Church a purely human institution, depending on the wisdom, sagacity and learning of University professors. Does Mr. Walworth say be is right In thist If he does, what right has he to call himself an " Old Catholic " Dr.-Dollinger is neither an old Catholic nor a new Catholic, for he is simply no Catholic at all, mince he virtually denies the supernatural guidance ad assistance of the Holy Ohost. Does Mr. Walworth do the same f Places he no faith in the promises of Our Lord to His Chuorch Mr. Walworth must pardon us for sng esting that it is possible that he has, in his aste to assert his freedom as a free born American oitizen, not duly considered the position in which he has placed himself. He has renounced and denounced the Ca thollo Church, and in so doing he has de nied that God has any Church on earth, or that man has any means of salvation. He ham deprived himself of boause and home. Will he return to Protestantism I But the Protestants sects are none of them any bet ter than they were, and he has all the rea sons for leaving them that he had when he originally left them.- Build a new Church I Man is noChurch builder, and a man-iade Church would be no protection in this bleak and wintry world. We see nothing for him but to stand out in the cold. Yet what is to come of his poor soul t We pray him, for his sake, not ems, to recon sider the matter.-N. . Tablet.
