X10 .U5Z, SUJD&T, J1ANUARY 14 1.1. I A O8800IATION OF THE APOSTLE. SHIP OF PRAEB.R "Io Association of the Apostleship is a as league, having for its object to pro the glory of God, the triumph of the iib, and the salvation of souls through Lthe world. Its weapon is prayer er- I ed with that peculiar strength which t aeds from union, and that still greater I strength which proceeds from the centre sad bond of the league, the Sacred Heart of Jesus. As this Association is free fromn all pecuniary contribution, so it imposes asootber obligation than that of an intention by wblhh our thoughts, words and actioub are offered up to God, as so many acts of supplication, and which thus easily makes our life one of continual prayer. Conse- s quently, this Association does not interfere with other obligations or devotions which any one may embrace, or may be bound to practice; nor does it burden its members with additional devotions. Its specific feat are consists in the spirit with which it ani mates the actions of its members, a spirit t immensely beneficial to themselves and to othersa The Associates of this Apostleship enjoy, f besides the privilege of the copious indul genees mentioned in the tickets of admis sion, a special participation in the merits of several religions orders, that is, a parti cular share in the merits of the good works, prayers, mortifications, apostolic labors, c ete.i performed by the members of those a religious orders. EXTRACT FROM THE STATUTES OF T APOS p TLEWIP OF PRAYER APPROVED BY THE HOLY SEE. Art. 1. The Apoetleship of Prayer is neither a Congregatioot or, properly speaking, a Coc- h fraternity, but rather a holy league of prayer, in which not only individuals are, but especi A ally pious associations among toa faithful, isn o vited to combine. S Art. 2. The only condition required of the It Associates, in order that they may eLijy the u advantages granted by the II.ly See to the w Apostleship of Prayer, is that they unite them. selves with thb intention of the Seored HIart of Jesus, by offering, at least once every day, the prayers, labors andti' suffring, . tto aay ort bet utencons of the ):vino Hiart pleid ing for us and perpetually imn nolstir, I~e f1' for us: making thin cfferiog especially for teo Church, for the Pope, and for co::ri.i :;,rcseug intentions whihob are reaon'nomt..Il e 1an l month by the general Direoct r of the Apt st u sa ship. it Art. 3. The faithful aggrega'ed to tthe Apos- m tieahip, share, by the act of such al,.egition e all the indulgences and other spiru!a"l favors granted to the Arch Confraternityof the Sacred Heart of Jesus erected a. R une in the Coureth delta Pace Art 4. Religions commnunities, as they are me entitled to the Brst rank in this league of gr prayer, are especially invited to aggregate in themselves to it; even though their rules oil forbid their taking on themselves any new un burden ; for that cannot be regarded as a tw burden which merely implies the union of Iax their intentions with those of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. s Decree.-Oar Holy Father Pope Pius IX., in the an audiencoe granted to His Eminence, the for Secretary of the Sacred Congregation of Bis hops and Regulars. on the 27th of July, 186t6, approved and confirmed the statutes given above. A. CARD. QUAGLIA, Prefect. sill S. SVGoLIATI, Secretary. aer tot Summary of Oraces Recorded During The Past the Year. At the opening of the New Year, we fan submit to your notice, kind readers, a tog summary of the graces which the bMessen- me ger of the Sacred Heart of Jesus has chronicled during the past twelve months. If you but read the record you will learn a two-fold lesson and arrive at a twofold V csanclusion. First, it is a truth and oh, Eai how consoling! that in all their wants and reg, woes, afflictions and miseries, the friends of as a Jesus do not apply in vain to the riches of "F( His Divine Heart for succor and relief, pap redress and consolation. But secondly the how sad is the fact, that few, very few are imp they, who are acquainted with the benea- eqo olence of the Heart of Jesus, the extent of sine Its power, Its goodness and compassion. is We know, that many and great are the Eno miseries that hover over the earth ; that it ble is full of failure and disaster, of disappoint- E ir ment and dissatisfaction, of battle and Imp strife. And yet we can only repeat what tory we have so often declared before, there is beer a sure remedy for every ill, a solace for bete every woe, in the devout, unremitting snot appeal to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. that In Its recesses the trembling prince may hani fnd an asylum, and the sullen masses that that threaten rain and disorder learn peace and. Kinj contentment; there boiling passions are the I tempered and wrongs are righted; there spre sufferings cease asd joys prevail. The Con poor become rich, and the rich, renowned; sion and all, in a word, finm that in the Sacred to of Heart, they are filed with good things. omy We have but one wish, that of seeing the In I Sacred Heart's treasures more largely 1323 distributed, and if this desire be granted, for we shall next year be enabled to record a from ichoer harvest of graces. four VOCATION TO TIIE FAIThI. ride Most heartfelt thanks have been return ed to the Sacred Heart for the conversion to the faith of seventy-nine icdividlua'e tra and three families, recommended to the mar association of the Apo-tleship, besides a number of others whose names have not bagg been sent us. Of the seventy-nine the stein uajority were Protestants, some were bag infidels, and one was a Jewees whoses con- s verslon was granted almost miraculously 13 hortly after she had beee recommended. ar ome of these conversions were accompsan ad by remarkable circumstances; as, for ct t lstance, a happy death following their eng aptism; or the advanced age of the con- thin erts. Of the latter we would mention a the I •utheran woman who received the gift of in li aith at the age of seventy-four, a colored froz an at the age of eighty and a Scottish of I obleman of one hundred and two. To the hese we must add the frequent cases of cold nversions of individuals on their death- and i ad followed by a happy death. Intt REFORM Or LIFE. Th Einoere thanks have been offered for the have form of twenty-three persons addicted abon, intemperance, some of whom had Midst eglected their religious duties for years; frost ne conversion of one of them caused great In 10 atonishment to some of his friends who years lid not know of the prayers offered for Chror m and were at a loss to account for the were "nexpected change. Thanks are also re- April urned for the reform of thirty-five indi- isbed. ideals and several others, who were don B :gligeent Catholics or living most sinful 24,14 l'es. To these cases must be added a -afue mily and fifty individuals, non practical, bee mes for five, six, seven, ten, thirteen, vehci1 conty, and even thirty years. One of ster. er. these converslons took place only two weeks after prayers had been offered for it. s. The same prayers have obtained the coc version of sixteen persons giving scandal, E two of whom died happily shortly after; and one expressed the desire to live long er to suffer more and atone for the crimes a of a sinful life of twenty years A murder 'o- er who for some length of time had lost be all hope of salvation recovered it by giving h- himself to a penitent life. Finally, thanks t- have been returned for the reform of sev eh eral hardened sinners, thirty-wve of whom er have been particularly mention. d re PIaITUAL ORACEl AND OTHER FAVORS. To give a detailed account of the favors conta'ned under this heading would take too much space. It will be enough for us to state that sincere thanks have been ren of dered to the Sacred Heart and to the mem bers of the Association for many favors,i over eight hundred of which have been e specified; fort. -cue times thanks were returned for many favors, especially spir itual. Of the tavors soecified eleven referred to removal of difiiultles of vari one kinds; eleven to the finding of lost children; eight to reconciliation among it the members of a family and other persons; five to obtaining situations; five more referring to preservation from danger; ten to happy and edifying deaths; three to safe voyages; two to successful missions. Favors also have been acknowledged by six Sodalities, four Congregations, one Academy and by some Communities, It is worthy of note that the mouth of the Ss cred Heart (June) is the one in which more abundant graces are recieved than in any other of the year. To this general state* ment we shall add some more noteworthy . particulars. In[a one of our correspondence we have thanks for favors granted to two I families and for hundreds of special favors, t spiritual and temporal, received after they C h.td been recommended in the Messenger. Another asks thanks for the establishment of the Apostleship in all the Societies and c schools of a parish, and another acknow u ledgel a signal favor suppo3nd to be a!m st t s unattainable, and granted ahority after it was reconimeade1l. SLCCESS AND IRESOURCES. Under this heading many thanks are eotrned for umernous favora received, t and for oCe hundred and nine lnr:re now to 0 h.7 speciti.-d, namely, for relief tro:n tinan c al emb .r.-ssm.nt for one family and f.ur l individas!s; for the favorable result of a seven lI,.v U1te; fo: eneee s in business a obtaiedl by twelve indlividuals. Many t more thank the Sacred H art for situations w des:re d and obtained, and thirty-3ix more, particularly mentioned, muost be added. ti Sevegteen mone graces are acknowledged t, in favor of literary and other establish- c ments, or concerning studices. Removal of B great dificaltiee has likewise been obtained d: in five different cases. Thanks again are fr offered to the Sacred Heart for several J undertakings successfully carried out and li twenty-three more mentioned in partica- w lar, also for eighty-seven more favors of a fc similar kind. The Sacred Heart is finally at thanked for the recovery of property and w' for the means to build a church. cc m RECOVERY OF HEALTH. cc O.ie hundred and fifty-six individuals h sfllcted by various infirmities more or less w, serious, some of them desperate cases, some w totally or partially insane thank cordially br the Sacred Heart of Jesus to whom prayers fo were offered for their recovery; three Ei families and one community do the same, w. together with many others not particularly Di mentioned. q, do~ *. SEVERE WINTERS IN EUROPE. de rn - th ll What passes in England and Continental hi J, Europe for "a severe winter" would be as d regarded in the Northern States and Canada ar of as a comparatively mild and open season. wi if "Forty-slx degrees or frost," as the London as f, papers shiveringly pot it when recalling m, y the Lard winter of 1860, lose much of their to e importance when translated into our St - equivalent of '-fourteen below zero ;" and frc sf since the invention of the thermometer it ye is doubtful if the mercury has gone in an .e England below twenty degrees. Memora he it ble severe winters there have been in Oc - E irope, not a few of which have had their bo d importance as well as their interest in his- the t tory. In 401 the Brack Sea is said to have Ja a bees frozen over for twenty days, and sni r between Octoher 763, and February 764, at Ssnoch a frost prevailed at Constantinople off I. that the seas are-spoken of as frozen for a a l Y hundred miles from shore. It is certaino e, t that twojcenturies before, in 559, Z ibergan, ski d King of the Hans, crossed the Danube on Sti a the ice and roauting the troops of Justiolan 187 9 spread over Thrace to the very walls of Pal e Constantinople, this being the first incur lev sion of the Bulgarians who are next week I to choose a prince and regain their antsn- TH omy. In 1622 ice covered the Hellespont. D In 1291 the Categat was frozen over; in r 1323 the Baltio was passable to travellers I for six weeks; again in 14102 it was frozon sea I from Pomerania to Denmark, and twenty- em four winters later its surface would bear a Irel rider from Lubeck to the shore of Prussia. Nei In 1.10) horsdt"n rode from Dnmark to as S reden, antl in 15-48 ledges dra ru by oxen Th: travell on the sea from Rostock t~ Don- thf' mark. In 1;,3d Charles X , with, his army, nin horse and foot, and his artillery, trains and end baggage, crosaed the Litle Bolt from 1I l- sing stein to Denmark, to lay siege to Copeu- pnrl hagen. Too German chronicles contain lish as many records of severe seasons. In be c 1433 the large fowls of the air sought shel- elgn ter in the towns of Germany ; in 1468 and lisfl again in 1544 wine merchants in Flanders it be cut their wines-champagne frappe with a moo vengeance, only champagne was still a of a thing corked ap and wired tn the bottle of Tas the future-with hatchets and sold them Is in lamps. In 1565 the lazy Scheldt was or a frozen so hard that it sustained the weight Telei of loaded wagons: again, in 1594, it and mea the Rhine were frozen over; in the great If an cold of 1622 the Znyder Z mo was icebound ters and in 1691 the winter brought the welves there into the streets of Vienna, where they poin attacked horses and even men. thirt The cold seasons of modern England on I have been most carefully noted, with an "Q t4 abundance of interesting details. On sans Midsummer Day, 1035, it is said that the want frost destroyed all the fruits of the earth; than in 1076-7-after the period of forty-one lica years that the writer ir the Gardener's forbi Ohronicle has been figuring out-there (that were dreadful frosts from November to hold April, and in 1407 all the small birds per- draw ished. The Thames was frozen from Lon- Ca don Bridge tV Gravesend from November nnivi 24, 1434, till February 10, 1435, and in 1515 Sorel -after the long cycle of eigh'y years had step been faltilled-it was again crossed by that vehicles between Lambeth and Westm!u- atten ster. In 1564 and 1697 the river was the grapl wo scene of bonfir and diversions, elabo. it. rately described on later occasions by c- writers whose passages are as familiar to 1l, English readers of this day as the stories r; of the Great Plague and Great Fire. Some g- Shakepearean commentators think that es they halve found in this unwonted scene of ir- fre upon ice the source of the inspiration tat of some of the Bard of Avon's images, and ag would use this as evidence to settle the ka date of the composition of a play. The r- winter of 1683-4 was terribly cold. "The m. forest trees and even the oaks split by the frost; most of the hollies were killed; the Thames was covered with ice eleven inches thick, and nearly all the birds per r isbed." "The frost," according to a citi re sen's diary, "began in the middle of 's December. The people kept trades on the 2 Thames as in a fair till February 4, 1694 I About forty coaches daily plied on the Sl Thames as on dry land. Banght this book an t a shop upon the ice in the middle of the re Thames." In the winter of 1709 there was a three months frost with heavy snow, and in 1716 a fair was held on the Thames and oxen were roasted whole upon the ice. it '"Caches plied from Westmicster to the *g Temple, and from other stairs to and fro ; as in the streets, as that it seemed to ime a 7 Bacchanalian triumph, or carnival on the " water, while .t was a severe judgment on 0 the land." Again,. in the famous "hard s winter of 1741i, there, was another Frost y Fair on the Thames which lasted for nine e weeks, during which period coaches plied is regularly on the frozen surface and the a usual amusements were enjoyed. It was e in this winter that the famous ice palace y with all its furniture of nature's crystal 1 was built on the ice at St. Petersburg. y December, 170., was remarkably cold; e on Christmas Day the thermometer in 0 London marked 16 degrees below zero, , the greatest cold registered up to thatitime. Y On the thirteenth of January, 1810, the quicksilver was frozen solid at M.,scow. I t T'he winter of 1812, during which N polo d on's armyv struggled home from Russia, I leaving 4130,000 dead men to mark the track it had taken, was a very cold one. The saldiers were literally frozen stiff in circles as they lay or sat round their bivouac fires. In 1814 England endurttd a winter of ezcoptional severity. The pr treeve of Taviayeck sot out to taite t!! oath of office at the quarter sessions, tiil, ly, two miles away, arid, Ias the "Annuvl t r Register" records, was & rnri-d by snow I f and ice after proceeding twenty-one lIles I and imprisoned in a little ham!et for a twenty -six days without communication 8 with the outer world. Soldiers marching a from town to town were frozen to death on the road. The snow drifted in the streets a to such a height that all the shops were a closed; by the middle of January Lindon t Bridge was blocked, but that made no difference, for the Thames was completely o frozen over a few days later, when a Frost b Fair was opened on the river and a bal- t0 lock roasted whole. For many days there o were no mails, though the post-office put SI forth all its powers to compel oveeseers and parochial authorities to clear the high- fi ways, and sent agents down into the 0 counfryr to dig roads along which toiled L mail coaches drawn by ten horses. No t coal could get to London, and when the a householder's supply of fuel gave out there h was nothing for him to do but to shiver a:d b wait. It was difficult even to reach thlo t butcher shop where there were neither ci fowls nor vegetables to be had. In 1860 I England experienced probably her coldest w weather. From the 233 to the 30.h of P December the cold was intense. At Tor- b quay the mercury went down to 20 degrees Iii below zero. In Hyde Park it was at 17 degrees, and a letter in the Times recorded Pi that a horse had been seen "with icicles at at his nose three inches in length and as thick 5l as three fingers," a sight by no means 8a uncommon in Lower Canada. The Thames el was partially frozen in its tidal reaches, as and from Teddington Lock to its most re- eq mote sources was covered with ice from six bh to ten or even twelve inches in thickness. gr Skating parties were arranged for journeys th from Oxford to London and back, and the as year in question will always be memorable ar among skaters as the one in which round- Si! heeled irons finally, superseded all others. gr On the 9sh of January, 1861, there were rel bonfires and grand displays of fireworks on lo the ice in St. James'e and the other parks. Im January, 1867, was another cold month, sol snow and ice practically suspending tradle i at London for several days, though people the offered cabmen fares of 15 and 20 shillings cot a mile. It was on the 15th that the ice in cul Regent's Park gave way beneath some 500 an skaters, of whom forty-one were drowned. we Still another cold season was the winter of foc 1870-1, during which the poor people of Paris and the illy-equipped Republican levies of Gambetta suffered so severely Sii THE EDUCATIONAL LIBERTY OF IRE at LAND. at - I e ! It is said that when the really practical hi setsion commrincos we are to have a gv- wl erament bill for a Catholic university for i L Ireland. Wo most ainrerely hope s , .

That is the question. The Daily the Telegraph says something that seems to fat mean that a bill to that effect is coming. tior If sueach a bill be not announced by minis- sub tere at the usual opening of the session, resa there will be great and most just disap freq pointment in Ireland. For more than thirty years has Ireland been played with on this subject. As for the infidel "Q teen's Colleges," they have been no suostitate for that which Ireland really TI wants.

Such a formula is wholly absurd in a country in which the Catholic Church has a million and a half adherents; outnum bering the Church of England by more than three to one; in which the Governor General has constantly received Catholic Bishops as esoch, honoring the late Apos tulie Delegate as a representative of the Holy See; and in no part of which a royal exeqfuatur is necessary to enrable a Bishop to eater into full possession of the tempo ral and spiritual prerogatives of his c,.e. In a large portion of Canada, says the St. John Freeman, the Catholic iseoeuntialiy an established Cinorc,. The absurdity of the oath was made evident by the course of the new Govern or himself in the recognition shown to t!,o Archbishop of Halifax, during the festivi ties of his installation as Governor, and in the visits made by the vice-regal party to Catholic institutions. As a relic of past intolerance, the oath is a bald anachronism ; as a statement of fact, it is a plain falsehood ; and as an oath proscribing the faith which gave the DJ minion its Christianity and civilization, it is an insult to tho majority of the popu latioun. the ..... . one.
