The scene Inside the court woe also un usual. The Chief Justice was there, looking l as pale and emaciated as ever, but with a smile upon him which denoted to my mind 3 pleasure at having thebo opportunity of hammer ing away at the priests of Galway, if not to t sentencing them to imprisonment as misdo- h meanants. Turning to the bar, we find the a ev. bMr. Loftus sitting by his attorney and v near his counsel. The.lev. gentleman looked about forty years of age, wore short-cut, bushy, n iron-gray hair, had a dark complexion, was of $ powerflir build, and altogether gave you the t, idea that ho had gone through, and was still c, able to go through, hard missionary work. f The cousel who appeared wore Mr. Bntt, Q. C., h hi. P., about lwhom I need say nothing, except u that, old man as he is, h never looked to ma so fresh and active and determined to fght out at his caso to the last Mr. HI. H. McDermott, a pi rising young Catholic lawyer, who got his ednuation at the Catholic University, Is a Sligo c< man, and was one of Captain Nolan's counsel is at the trial of the election petition in Galway, ps and Mr. Carton, another young Catholic bar- w rister, who is making his way upwards. On ti the other side were the "good Catholic" Attor- w ney General, Mr. Palles; Sergeant Armstrong. who was Captai. Trench's leading counsel at Jo the trial of the petition in Galway: Dr. Bali, to Q C., and M. P. for Trinity College, and Attor- w; ney General under the last Tory government, fo. and an obscnre junior named Naish. As the ge Natlion points out, of these Mr. Pollee does the at part of the sucking dove, and Sergeant Arm. vi; strong that of the bully and the blockhead. The introduction of Dr. Ball was a crafty piece an of business. Dr. Ball Is a Protestant and a en Tory, and the objects Mr. Palles snd the govern. wa ment had in view in bringing him to theiroas- me sistanco were to disarm the hostility of the an Tories in Parliament in regard to their conduct itI is the matter of the Oslway prosecutions, and qn to induce the Protestant Jurors to ge readily exl Into the box. Ihis is perfectly plain to every ini one here, though nobody sysItopenly. So far for the chief personages of the drey the The first business done woe to empanuel and to swear the jury. Twelve men were got readily nol enough, but several-amongst them some Pro- tra tcstants-though called on fines of £50, did bal not answer to their names. More than one of Sts them, no doubt, being Protestants, did not ing wish to have anything to do with trying Ca- no. tholic olergymem fbr such a thing as the exer- aal cise of undue ingmence at an eleotion. The Mr. twelve elmpnsaJed consisted of seven Catbo- ant lics, three Protestants and two Quakers. Not- ear; withstanding all Mr. Pallee'efobrts to weed out reej the Catholic names from the jury list, the ma- and jority was largely Catholic. One of the three exe Protestants Is, I am told, an apostate to Catho- Lot licism, to whom the very sight of a priest is a we. reproach. Clearly Father Loftus had not much if tl to hope for from him. Fiaslh, one of the Olin seven Catholics-a man named M ichaelClarke escc -was a curious and amusing character, and in the the course of the trial created some merriment. Lot He is an honest, respectable farmer of this foll county, who wear a white neck-tb knee brechs annd long frieze coat, and never In all des his long life woe on ajury beforo.

In the course of the day, when luncheon coat time came on, Michael Clarke, with the rest, city. went out, good, honest man, to take, as he the himself afterwards saida penny "rowl" and tend a pint of ale.

To aid i en lightening ttie many, and edifying and enter taining all, I propose to contribute a few short articles concerning several societies which have been blesced in a special manner by the Church. As being the mosot. generally diffused throbghout thu world and, in its spirit and workings ptobably he best calculated to aid man in the faithful discharge of ais duties to wards his God and his fellow man, I will com nence with the Society of St. Vincontde Paul . The Manuel of this society gives the follow ing acconut of its origin: In the year 1533, isl paris, inn a house not far we rfrom the pblic shoo ls, nod bong used for the na I receptien o studioous youths, was held a liter mill. myeieatlý Society whose sittings were con Lad duncted witn all the sulmstloan that yeoeg ew- minds usually give to that sort of intellectnal sparring, andl likewise all the serious interest Sat which religions questions impart to the matters say with which they are coinnected; for such qo es mae, tions frequently recnrred among those stin Sso dents who met to converse about history, lit ths erature, philosophy, and wore to be found at Sor tirne bottom of all the great preblems raised by istheir juvenile ardor.Thurs it bapprsed that tioe these who ad remained faithfl to the Catho say tic creed united and were drawn together by the the necessity of professing them onenly and as- defending them against their opponents. The aid same faithb, dear to all, the power of religious r ad. synipathy, a sort of confraternity in arms, rof spriin Pifrom the habit of fighting under up, tie same anner, had soon knit their hearts eps and souls; and they had become friends even ell beforethey had exchanged a word of friend- 1 ship. They soon inquired whether that faith ity which they wore so happy as to possess, ought t- not to cement their nion by some hand more o by consoling than controversies whfoh though 's necessarty, were sometimes passionate or open nd ave to piety. They understood that it wease as desirable to establish asother association, ex- C ýk. clunsiely christian, over which charity alone e ms, should preside, and whose harmless object g a should e the worship of Our Lord Jesus an- Christ in the persons of a few poor. or Such was the principle or ratler instinct of w association from which sprang our first Confer- d ence. It retained that denomination, which is a adopted in Paris, by the youth of the Schools, B for the studious meeti, gs of young men; but hi a which would be misunderstood, if any one l ig thought that her object is to make speeches on di charity, and discuss the methods ef Improving t 0 the condition of the laboring classes. of By paecing herself from the first nnder the p 'invocation of St. VIncet de Pant, is order to r h 'obtain tlironh that great servant of God, a du few spark. of the spirit of charity and faoth be e which glowed within him; the Conference e-I showed plainly that it was notb purely theo- in retical studies, but by deeds and deeds alone, an *t according to the measure of its weakness, re e that its members intended to follow at a dim- *d II tance the examples of their blessed Patron. I, The first meetings took place In May, 1833. Al They were then compoeed of only eIght mem- 50 ,f bers, and that was perhaps aa advantage; y because at the very beginning, from ti a few a ness of the members, there prevailed In the of Conference those habits of cordiality, those bri affectionate, simple and familiar manners, the sal - tradition of which, thanks to God, has net an a been loss. Those who formed the original t group will preserve fee all their live. the bap-.we Py remembrance of the friendships then con Strcted. ma It is easily imagined that a Society of eight the students was richer In charitable Intention. wh than in money, and perhaps the penury of its to rosources would have caused it to fall, had not tra favorable circumstauncesasisted It at the out. ann Sset. The office of a periodical paper in the ant Rue da Petit Bourbon 8t. Sulpice, first afford. oft edit shelter. The newspapers published the literary essays of some of the members of the of 1 Conference, who thus found mesans to supply wo the deliciency In the collections by oontrlbn- ma tin; to the charity-fund the amount paid for oft their articles, we Two mouths after its formation, at the open- sioi log of vacation time, the Society reakoned reli about fifteed members; after the vacation, its r meeting-place was transferred to the centre of era the School DIstrict, in the house formerly call- the ed " Menos de bosses Etudes." The ranks were per soon tilled up by the accession of many new roli members, tine In l .i5, as the number of the members -as tiot upwards of 100, it was necessary to divide the why Society into two sections. It was not without long and painful hesita- d tion, that the division was decided upon; for any not only was it painful to break off the rela- yle tious already formed, and the delightful habit men of attending altogether to the work concerted rep by all, but also it was feared that thereby one might b3 weakened the oiily I;:.ip'o by to I which the Society had any force arid useful- of I ness, I mean the spirit of christiaq un±: ; ý_, c.: fraternity. Nevertheless it was indipensali, to yield to a neceassity that was In some war material. The separate Conferences were held 'd forsome time in two rooms of the above ea. b tablishment in the pariah of St. Etienne de Moot; then one was transferred to the parish g of t. Suipice. and soon after the Society e extening still inoure, had two new branches in the parishes of lotre Dame de bonn. Non vello and 8t.

The meet Sings being less nunserous,recovd and the ohsre I of their original intit acyd; every Conference became a convenient centre for acqpuiring new, reernits, to which zeal increased in proportion touoew neeslritien. Theo, gradually new Conh ferences wereo fur ned i n the ditrerent parts of tihe city, and the Society whrich in 183t reck oned only two Confeorences, spreadscesoeivs ly over the parishes of Paris aud its vicinity. The foregoing history is inmortant, as show ing the spirit whioh inspired the organization of the Society, and whiich, still controls it in its worild-wide extent. The drAssociation, thouigh hmblo and obscure in its origin, was blessed lby God and prospered by the help of charity and Mm protection of the Church. From Paris, its birthplace, it passed to foreign countries, and at present, in distant lands, amid custows, nationalities, I tongues, all varying the one from the other, its nembb are everaywhere seen Imitating, with equal ardor;lle Illustrions aexamnples' Vincent do Paul, devoting, in the name of Jesus Christ, a portion of their tinte to the r service of the poor, blending temporal alms- I giving with pious exhortation, and aiming to s regenerate the soul by recalling to the Chris tie,, his sublime destiny. f In order to continue their good works and I render permanent the result achieved, certain t, traditions have boon established, certain rules 0 adlopted.

Our Sfirst thought, then, on coming together, has ,t beento cast ourselves at the feet of your e Holiness and to implore that apostolic hene n diction from which we hope both increased g strength to ourselves and a favenrable o progress and issue to the good workl which we undertake. It is a source of Sdeep grief to us, Most Holy Father, to h behold the best of parents (as your a Holiness Undoubtedly is) afflicted with incessant sorrow from the treasonable psnares as well as from the open violene of rebellions children. These sad events afflict us the more as the freedom of the Apostolic Chair itself is assailed in the per son ofyour Holiness, now conficed within your own palace, and the entire system of law, rght, and justice Is, by the counsels ef wicked men, weakened and well-nlnh i brought to ruin in the Christian capital it self. For what shall we say of that lawless and sacrilegious invasion of your Holiness's temporal estate ! An estate which, by God's , wonderful Providence, has endured for so man ages, ensuring the fll freedom of the Church and its Supreme Head, nay, which has justly been accounted necessary i to preserve this freedom entire and nure- 1 trained. What shall we say of the seizure and armed occumlon of Bome itself, the consecrated by t lblood of the two chiefs of the apostles and raised to be the es ital of the Christian name, and, ldeed,of the j world itself! What of the desecration of so many temples hallowed by the memories of the saints and objects of venration to the world at large!
