Desperate Attempt on the Life of a Priest in Texas. S Philadelphla Catholic Standard. ] A friend sends as for publication a letter to himself from Rev. Father Theo. Boffard, a Ca tholio missionary for Clarksville and Texar kana, Texas, and a most estimable and worthy priest : CLinxevvlLx, TEXAS, August 'i3, 1874. Mr. --, Baltimore : Dear Sir-You must be surprised at having received no answer from me since so long. got back from Texarkana a few days before the Assumption. On the Feast of the Assumption I had three children to be baptized, and who made their first Communion. But that day of Feast was not to end without sorrow and clouds. In the evening, a man who is not'sa Catholic, but I thought to be a gentleman, came to my house, where I was reading alone. Arrived on the porch, be went into the hall, and though he eaw me in my room, he went all the way through the hall, very likely to see if there were somebody in the yard. Then returning on his steps, be came into my room. I thought he was a friend. I had not seen him for ten months, so I rose up and went to shake hands with him. He refused positively to do so. I was quite surprised; [ invited him then to sit down, and myself eat down in a corner near tbhe window. During that time he had pulled of bis coat. Taking the chair I had prepared for him, he brought it close to me, and sat so near me that his knees were touching my knees. Seeing a hammer on the floor, he pick ed it up and pet it on the window, convenient to his right hand, hinting by the expression of his face and eyes, that he was going to use it for my head. Then I got soared, hobut being blockaded in a corner, there was no way of eecanping, and there would have been no time. Rest~lng his elbows on his knees, and his chin on his hand, in such a way that his nose was nearly touching mine, in a f',riOcs fit of pas sion he commenced thue: "N ite I scant to kiroi wees p have beees wrtling to the Bishop~ about nme." n before I could give him a few words of answer, he eanght me at the throat with his left hand,and was choking me; with his right hand he got bthe hammer, but I made it drop frota hi hand. Then I rose up and balloed. "If you halloo," said he. I will kill you ;" atidd before speaking he had drawn from his pocket apistol. I was hallooing more and more. For tunastely, all the windows were open. "I have come to kill you any way," said he, after awhile. I had the presence of mind to recommend my -sel to Almighty God. At the time he was cooklng the pitol, I get hold of one end of it with my left hand. The struggle lasted a while In theroom. He wse always choking me and trying to direct the pistol on me, but to avoid be ng opposite to the pistolI was twisting mself around him. Finally,as he was novin hia fingers to be ready to shoot, I tw'ue the pistol in his hband, and the pistol beamemin- Ithrewit through the window. S C aid then be had another pistol, and put a Ja hi- o, t.Itwaith.e' r, You may -saeestaan ia whatexelitement is . eig rsat1oa about that audacious at .

Of coarse, I despised his thresat and gave him the answer to do just what he pleased, that I was not afraid of his accusation. Yours truly, THaE. BOUlARD. The Venerable John Tudes. InRACULOUs CURES. A correspondent of the London Tablet says: The Venerable John Eades, the cause of whose Beatification is now pebding at Rome, is but little known as yet in this country, except as the Founder of the Or der of Our Lady of Charity and o? the Good Shepherd, whose convents and re fages have existed amongst us for the last thirty years. I think, therefore, a short account of two recent miracles may not be uninteresting to your' readers. Lucy Clairai has been twenty-eight years inthe Refuge at Rennes. In 1862 she was attacked with paralysis, and from- that time could only move with crutches. In 1870 her tongueand throat became so much affected that she could no longer take any food, and for more than three years she was kept alive by forcing a tube down her throat and thus feeding her with incredi ble pain. In November 1870, she became deaf, and lost the use of speech, and last " December blindness was added to this complication of suffering. On the 30th of January, 1874, whilst the cause of the Venerable John Eudes was proceeding at Rome, a Novena was begaun to the holy Founder for this poor invalid ; she became so much worse that she was administered and her death momentarily expected, when on the morning of the 5th of Febuary she was suddenly cured, rose, dressed herself, eat a large piece of bread, and it is need less to add joined most fervently in the thanksgivings offered by the Religious and Penitents of the large community of our Lady of Charity of Rennes. This astonishing cure was followed by another in the same Convent. Mary Augus tin Chasse, Sister Touriere (or out-sister), ,, about two years ago, was judged, from her excessive suffering, to have cancer in the stomach, and was soon unable to take any food except a little milk, and that with the greatest difficulty. Loss of sleep and acute pain had so reduced her that death was considered as inevitable and at no great distance. On the 2nd of March, 1874, the Community commenced a Novena to their Venerable Founder, John Endes, but the poor sister, though she joined it by obe dience, felt it was useless, and said she did not think Pere Eudes would cure her. She continued,to grow so much worse that towards the endahe asked her Superioress's leave notto make it. But the good Mother desired her to continue it, assuring her she would receive some grace, if not her cure. On the 10th of March with great difficulty Sister Mary Augustin dragged herself to the chapel, for a sermon and Benediction which were to commence a Novena for the Feast of St. Joseph. Exhausted with fa tigued she sat down for a moment outside the choir and before some relics of Father Endee, intending there to say the last prayer of her Novena, when she found her self instantaneously cured. She knelt dar ing the Benediction, went up stairs, took her supper, and the next day assisted in the wash-house without feeling the amall eat inconvenience. Various other miracles also attest the power of the Venerable John Eudes with God. Amongst othersethe cure of a Peni tent in the Convent of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd at Arras. THE ENOLISIr AGRICULTURAL LABORERS' LEADERS.-In his notes in the Laborers' Union Chronicle, Mr.-Henry Taylor, Gen eral Secretary, says : "It is my izitention, immediately on my return from Canada, . to visit each district committee as early as possible, especially those who require my attention most. Those who are whole need no physician. We shall have to go into it Sagain after harvest, my boys. The farmers threaten tolock-out again. I do not doubt that they will annoy us all they can, and if they do we must retaliate. Now the union men have their redress in their. own, hands. Let every man who is victimized by the farmer by a lock-out at once, unless he can drop into another job, throw himself on the rates. Let there be no parley. Make a desperate effort and show your determination not to be defeated. I hate pauperism and I hate crime, but I would rather see our prisons and workhouses fill ed to overflowing for a time than such tyrants should get fat on the blood of the industrious toilers as they have done in the past. There is no temper in this; I speak coolly and deliberately." Mr. Arch the President of the Agricultural Laborers' Union, has issued an address on the col lapse of the Eastern Counties lock-out. He enforces the importance of the union becoming independent of external aid, and reproaches the laborers for the reluctance they show either to migrate or remigrate. Henceforth, he sayse, let emigration be their watchword. He declares that emigration will be pushed until the landed gentry, whether proprietors or farmers cry *"Hold, I enonghl." 1N A BORROWED LIVERY.-A very funny i story, aimed at those clergy of the High 1 Church persuasion who make their dress a part of their religion, is told as follows in a letter from London : "The other lday the R,,man Catholic Bishop of NottinghIIRm, being in London, walked in tile col of the r evening in Kensington Gardens, inI cn. c pany with a friend of his, an officer in thie army. They met a priest-to all appear aoces a Roman, priest-whto had a woman p on his arm, who !ad her band in his, and L who was making fast and furious love to her. The face of thie Bishop fluashed red ; he passed on; but heo instantly turned back, b and overtaking the priest begged permis- q sion to speak to him. 'May I ask, sir,' said he, 'if you are a priest ' 'Yes.' was tihe reply. 'A Catholic priest t' 'Yes,' 'Arl I may I asked under the jurisdiction of what Bishop are you?' 'Before I answer that ti question,' said the priest, 'I should like to h know to whom I am talking.' 'I am the Bishop of Nottingham,' said his Lordship. d 'Bet we have no such bishop in the Eng- q glish Church,' replied the priest.' 'Oh I' exclaimed the Bishop, 'then you belong to the Enlilb Church; I am dtl.~hted to hem tt adx ws ea br.rao wl ?s al I The I.idies of the CrEb. [Erom the Batimore Mirror.] A German journal has recently' given in round numbers the statistics of the monks and nune scattered in the Cathollo convent over the globe. To some of our pious sea t taries they will be astounding. They will a cry aloud with a wall like the widows of Ashur, how many idle monthedevour the produce of the hard-working children of toll. Monks and nuns are all " lazy," all "unproductive" I their eyes. The asser tion formed one of Victor Emmanuel's reasons for despoiling the conventsof Italy but the other, day, and the Protestant sealots of Europe shouted out, "serve them right," whenathey were turned out on the f streets of Rome and Palermo and Milan, without b;ead or a roof to shelter them. Now, here are the figures in a rough sketch made by the journal, to which we refer: There are 319,000 religious in all, of which 120,000 are monks and 190,000 are nuns. The monastics are divided into 50,000 Franciscians, 50,000 Christian Brothers, 8,000 Jesuits, 6,000 are monks devoted to the care of the sick, 5,000 are Benedictines, Dominicans number 4,000; there are 4,000 Clatercians and Trappasts, -2,000--Lazarists. 2,000 of the order of St. Antony, 1,500 Redemptorista, 1,000 Thea tines, Hermits 1,000. To these figures It is necessary to add some thousands of Marists, Oratorians, Salpiciaus, and others not here enumerated. The oue hundred and ninety thousand nuns are divided into 162,000 in Europe, of which 10,000 are in France alone. Indeed, that estimate is below the reality. Little f Belgium boasts of 10,000 more. Italy bas 30,000, half of them wanderers now, without a spot wherein to lay their heads. Germany counts 8,000 as her number of nuns, Spain 7,000, England, (our readers will recollect that this is from a German source where they count eogiaud and Ire land as one), 4,000. Now, the truth is that England has not five hundred born English nuns, or nuns of purely English descent. Switzerland numbers 1,340, Poland 1,000, Hungary 2.000, America 20,000, Asia 4,000, Africa 1,000, Australia 1,000. This is the total in round numbers. Now, of this great army of sanctity, this splendid array of holy women, 22,000 are Franciscllas, 20,000 are sisters of the schools, 10,000 are Sisters of the Sacred Heart, 8,000 are Sisters of St. Joseph, as many more are Sisters ofthwVirgin, 7,000 are Sisters de Notre Dame, 7,000 are Ursn lines, 6,000 are Sisters of the Holy Cross, 5,000 are Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo, 4,000 are Dominicans, 3,000 are Carmelites, 3.200 are Angustinians, 2,500 Sisters de la Sagesse, 2,000 are Cistercians, and 46,000 others such as are Beguines, Poor Servants of Christ, Sisters of the Holy Ghost, Sisters of the Good Shepherd, Sisters of Mercy, Sisters of Nazareth, and so on to the end of the reckoning. It is a very common thing amongst the r foes of our faith to .tell us that these are " drones" " useless months feeding on the industry of society." British Ministers of State made use of such an argument to justify the invasion of the Pope's territo ries. " The crowd of monastics injured the progress of the people." Continental infidels repeated the cry. Over the world the sectary and scorner raise it with equal fervor. Of course, they forget or ignore the works that are done by the religious in the Catholic Church. They forget the hos pitals they tend, the schools where they teach, the poor whom they support by their charity, charities of their own giving, or of their begging from others. They assail them still, and will assail them always as "lazy monks," "idle nuns," and they say that these 310,000 useless months prey upon the community. Aneloquent priest of the Society of Jesus, in FranIce, lately answered that. " Yes," It' said, " these useless mouths open every instant to pray, or to preach, to teach, to console the poor, the sick, and the unitfrtrnate, to bless the sin nor who irepents., and to open [[eaven to the dying These are 3!0,000 mouths which sever open to return to the world the im pieties and the columns of scandals with withich tht-pages of the press are so richly furnished. These are 310,000 mounths which open, not in the saloon, in the tavern, nor at the corner of the street. Whlat useless mouths for the newspaper or the Police Gazette P" There is a good deal worth memory in this lesson, and in this contemplation of the ranks of the Soldiery of the Cross. THE NEW BISHOP OF SANDIIGRST, AUs TRALIA.-A Dublin correspondent of one of our exchanges says: Some time since, at the erection of 'Mel bourne into an archdiocese, Ballarat and Sandhurst were formed into dioceses, and Father O'Connor. P. P. of Rathfarnham, near this city, and Dr. Fortune, of Allbhal lows, Drumoondra, were appointed the first Bishops. Dr. O'Connor was duly con secrated, and a few days ago was presented with a flattering token of the esteem in which he is held by his late parishioners. But Dr. Fortune was obiige'l to beeline the responsibilities of Bish,op, and now it is announced thataoother Irishmuan is selected in his stead to fill the See of Sandhurst. I allude to the Very Rev. Martin Crean, O. S. A., late Prior of the Augustinia, Convent in this city, and, if i am not mietaken, ex Provincial of the Augustinians in Ireland. If Dr. Crean carries with himn to his new home the saine ideast clhurch-bildng as, in conjunction with others of his order, he has developed here, he will certainly create a sensation. Tlhe new Augustinian Church in this city is unquestionably the finest of which Dublin can boast. It, is a poem in stone.
