MEW OarIAS SUNmDAYT, IPEnUART s lSW. 2N IBZONIRBING MIRACLE. TEB BODY OP ST. FRANCIS XAVIR PFOUND UNCOORUPTED AND UNCRANGED, AT THE EICUNT ZXAMINATION IN GOA. SssUmtasy of an Eye Witass, Bishop Leo Meurin, of the Society of Jesus. QLAPRIC ACOOUUT OP THZ OPENING OF THE TOMB AND COFFIN OF THE APOSTLE OP THE INDIES AT GOA. N. T. Catholic Review. Unnoticed by the Protestant press of Europe sand America, almost unnoticed by the Catholie Press, the ancient town of Goa, ones the mistress of the East, was durang the early part of last month the ensoe of the revelation once more to public knowledge, of the astounding miracle of the preservation incorrupt of the body of Bt.,Fianies Xavier, who, after death, was Sthuown into a veasel of unalacked lime; "then buried in moist earth, but whose body, nevertheless, "was not allowed to see urruption." Three times since itAfinal burial in GBo, the Portaguese capital of the East, the Saint's tomb had been opened. The last of these oceeslons was on Decem ber 38, 1878, the Feast of St. Franois navier. The redalt of the examination of the relile is told in the following letter by Bishop Leo Meaurio, 8 J., Vicar Apostolic of Bombay, in a letter to a brother Jesuit. We owe this letter as well as our extract from the pastoral of the Archbishop of Goa, to our excellent Oriental friends of the Catholio Examiner, whose files also furnishaus with an account of a similar ex amination In 1859, from the pen of Bishop Canoe. But for this we cannot find space to-day. Bishop Meurin, S J., writes: I hasten to fulfill the most cheerful duty of givingyou an account of my pilgrimage tothe shrlie of oar gloriote brother, the Apostle of the Orient, St. Francis Xavier, whose body, miraculously preserved up to this day, has just been exposed to the admiration and veneration of the faithful. I do not intend to speak of the past, of the travels, labors, virtues, and mira ales of our Saint. nor of his death on the 21 of December, 1552, on the island of Saucian, the door of China, which death closed to his in satiable thirst for souls. I only wish to call to your memory the following historical facts: that his body was placed in A COFFIN FILLED WITH UNSLACKED LIME, for the purpose of accelerating decomposition, so that the bones might be ready to be removed at the time of the return of the Portuguese to Malaccs; that on re-opening the ocffia on the 17th of February, 1553, more than two months after the burial, the body was found nooor rapted, and, on an incision being made in the thigh, fresh blood issued copiously from it, a fact which repeated itself when, on the 23d of March of the same vear, the body was hurt whilst being placed in a narrow vault outside of the Church of Our Lady of Malaooa; that, when taken out from that humid resting place. one day of the following August, it was found as fresh as before and diffuacig a aweet fra grance, but the face was irjurei by a falling sharp stone; that it was taken to Goa. and placed, on the 15th of March, 1554. in the Churoh of St. Paul, of which now only the fa eade remains, whence it wes removed in 1560 to the Chapel of 8S. Thomas, to the College of St. Paul, and then to the professed-house of the Bom Jeans; that on the 3d of November, 1614, his right arm was out off by order of Paul V., who wished to possess the arm that had built up the Church of the Orient, on which occasion BLOOD 18SUED AGAIN COPIOUSLY FROM THE BODY; the arm was taken to Portugal; and thence to Rome. where I had the great consolation to see it 4l,9189, in the Church del Geen. The body, whioh from that time began to shrivel. was translated in 1655 to the Church Bom Jeasus, where it has been kept up to this time, and twice exposed to the view and veneration of the Christian people. first from the Sth till the 12th of February. 1782, and then from the 3d December, 18:9, tilk the 8th of January, 186t0. It is not here the place to recount the miracles whblh happened on all the oecesione mention ed; they have been duly examined, and, when found to have evidently been the work of God, have been declared as such by the competent eccleseastical authority. At the invitation of his Grace Dom Ayres d'Oroellas e Vasconcel los, the present zsalone and virtoous Arohbis hop of Goe, I repaired to Goa together with their Lordbships Bishop Borj-an of Jaffna, and Bishop Barbero of Aydrabad, the Very Rsv. Fathers Pagani, Pro-Vicar Apostolio of Mange lore, and Colgan, Vicar General of Madras. and a number of our clerical companions, leaving Bombay on the 29th November at ten a. m., in the steamer Alabarma, chartered and fited up for the Bombay pilgrims, and reaching Goa on the following day at ten a. m. Having anchor ed before Nova Goa or Panjim, the Governor's barge, manned with fouiteen men in their state drea, recelved and conveyed os in about an hour's time to Goa Velha, the city of roins, the former capital of THE ONCE MAJESTIC PORTUGUEhE Empire of the East, still grand in the magnifi. cent churches and convents, partly standing well preserved, partly fallen more or less into rains. How often already have the laments. tlona of Jeremias been recited over this city, and how often hereafter will travelers recite them I It is impossible to look at Old Goa without remembering the "Threni." Will they after another three hundred years be repeated over our Bombay I Through shrubs and rub bish we wound our way to the palace of the Archbishop, contiguous to the Cathedral, a stately building, sufficiently put in repair to be used occasionally by the Archbishop and those whom his amiable hospitality calls to that marvellous city, which is now inhabited by nobody except the canons of the cathedral, who are st the same time guardians of the still ex tant chuobnrohes and convents, and by St. Freanois Xavier, resting, so to say, alive in his magnifi cent silver shrine of the beautifol church of the Jesuite of old. HOW CAN I CALL DEAD him whose body dwells there preserved from corruption by God's power, and preaches with open lips to all who come to receive from the sight of an evident miracle a confirmation of their faith, consolation in their hearts, and, perhaps, relief from bodily ailments ? Being received by the Arohbishop with truly brother ]7 love, we were lodged, as many as possible, in his palace, the others finding a resting-plae in the cells of the old convent of St. Monica, aprep d for the occasion. On the three first deys of December we were able to say Mass at the shrine of St. Franols, In presenoe of the Wbdy still closed in the beautiful chest, but elready lowered, so aa to be conveniently taken to the magnifdoent baldaohin prepared for it in the transept of the churoh. Permit me to re frain from recounting the feelings the heart experienoee, and the host of thoughts that crosa the mind on an oonesson like this. To say little is to say nothing; TO SAT MUCH IS TO SAY TOO LITTLE. The man, the Christian, the religions, the Bis hop, bad his say, his embtiona, his petitions, not in a defined logical order, but in a throng, like the multitude that moved about tbhe bshrine, every one pushing blhs foreman, send be ing poshed on by others after him. It was very gracious on the partof the Archbishop t give to us bishops a prominent place, not on!y in the solema and acem preemdoa whiske moved on the feetival ay a. m., heom the Cathedral to the etneof thea aint, and thenoe with his body to the sanctuary of the Chureb of the Bon Jesus, but also during the Poetit oal Mass at hi right side, and especially at the openiong of the hest, after the Mss, sermon and Papal blessing were over for it was at bhis direotlon, that only we Biehope had to sislt him in removing the lid. I am told that rr was A MOVING AND IMPOSING IGTHT when we four bishops, In mitre and cope, lifted nup the cover that hid the Saint'ebody, a stand ig miracle, fromn the view of the faithful, and thes embibited it to the eager eyes and hearts of the thoesands that thronged the ohurch in the nave below and in the galleries above. I did not observe the multitude; I stood for a long time geaing at the head, the hand, the far., for they alone were unoovered, a riob hasuble, embroidered with gold and pearls, covering the rest of the body. I looked at him, as others did three centries ago, and stood CONVINCED THAT THIS WAS THE SAME BODY, once the tabernacle of that noble and holy soul, chosen by God for the salvation of mil lions and millions of soule. I kissed most rev. erently the feet of him that preached the Goes poel of peace and was then carried away from the privileged place I ooeuped, by the order of the day, whloh was to grant to as many faithful as possible the consolation of seeing God's marvel in His Saint. In the evening, on that and on the four following days, the Arch bishop took us again to the body of the Salnt, in a private manner, when we had fall leisure to pour out our prayers for ourselves and for those in our charge, and to examine most close ly the body in its present statse. We clearly found the statements oorrobosated, which the historians made about the injuries the body had received on the aforymentioned occa sione. I was allowed to lift up the right foot, and, being DY NO MEANS OF AN ENTEUSIASTIC FRAME OF MIND, to inspect it leisurely from all sides; the same I did with the hand and the head. The right foot was quite complete and intact: the heel, the sle, the toes, the nails, the muscles and tendons beneath the skin, everything in per feet order and well preserved, though harden ed, shriveled, and of a brownish color. The left foot I found somewhat injored; the second toe hanging broken, the three smaller ones were missing, and the skin of the heel was in some parts detached, . et very strongly coherent like the strongest leather. The right cheek and the tip of the nose appeared injured, but the eyes were fall and notat all sunk in, so, too, the abdomen, as the physician told me, who had examined the body. The left hand showed in like manner the sinews beneath the skin, and the fiogers with the nails in perfect pre servation. N'owhere any signs of decaoy! Italies in the original.] Considering that THI BODY HAS NEVER BEEN EMBALMED, but, on the contrary, subjected to the most effioent decomposing agency of fresh and on slacked lime, and to the humidity of an under. ground burial-place: that not even the riscera have been taken out, but are still discernable, as the offiuial inquiry made by the physicians assures us, and that aooording to the laws of nature, and their invariable action, in every other ies-anoe of a dead body, the body of the 8aint counld not be preserved incorropt, as it is, I wish to know who will gainsay that here is A MIRACLE OF THE FIRST ORDER attribored to no other power than the divine, which alone can inhibit the laws of natnre,and suspend their action for some higher porpose. The purpose of God's working this undeniable miracle is to prove the sanctity of His servant and the veracity of his teaching. It is impos sible for GOd to confirm by evident miracles a false doctrine. Toe religion taught by St. Francis XSvier is therefore a divine religion. It is the only one that ever has been confirmed by the visible finger of God, by miracles which NEITHER NATURENOR ANGELS, NOR DEVILS are able to perform by their own innate powers. The poor Goanese have to thank the Portuguese nation for very little beside the precious gift of that holy faith, which, however, sanflfes to fill their hearts even now with grateful attachb ment to a Gjvernment from which they receive and expect nothing, except now and then a good shepherd and the permission to see the body of their apostle and patron. Possessing in their Catholic religion an infallible guide to heaven, they can afford to ignore the serff ings of those who, in their ignorance and wilful prejudice, are unable to discern the supernatu ral from the natural, and CALL OUR VtNERATION OF GOD'S SAINTS SUPER STITITIN. We left Gisa no the feast of the Immaculate Conception, fitled with great and ineffaceable conesolbtoo, ready to give witness to every one of tho mnrvelons honor bestowed by the Almighty on our brother. tIe great Apostle of the Ehs', St. Francis ievier, to walk in who.,e footsteps is our heartfelt desire and sole ,ambition. ABCHIBISHOP McTALE ON THE POLITI CAL SI UATION. The Archbishop of Tnam has addressed the following letter t the Dublin Freeman's Jour nal : ST. JARLATH'8, TUAM, JAnuary 4 Sir-It is high time that a termination be put to the dieheartaningdivisions that prevail in the ranks of the Irish popular representa tives in the British Hoose of Parliament. The evils of discord, existing for some time past, have been aggravated by recent manifestations as senseless as the worst enemies of Ireland could desire. The nation heartily laments the existence of suoh dissensions, and will suffer no longer the continuance of a disorder that paralzzns the best energies of all for the com mon benefit of their nativeland. Without attempting to cffer an opinion as to the correctness of the views of the contending parties, it may be affirmed that the moment has arrived for united and energetic action on the part of all. Li:t the errores of the past be generousnely forgiven and forgotten, and let the opening year ushber in the dawn of a brighter era, dispelling forever the present dark anod dreary prospects of our down-trodden people. It is to be hoped and expected that this first month of the new year shall witness in the rapital of our ooontry an assembly of the faithful, devoted and experienced sons of Ire land, judiciously framing wise and effiient rules for the fuotore direction of our members of Parliament, regardless of the interests of the contending patties of the British nation Let the existence of Home Rule be vigorously insisted upon. Let unity of action among the members, as far as posaible, be ensured by summoning them in due time for seasonable deliberation in London, whenever great mes sares for the benefit of Ireland or of the British dominions are about being introdooed into Parliament, as well as during the progrees of sach measures through both Houses. Let the deliberations of the consulting assembly in London be duly submitted from time to time, by means of the press, to the discriminating appreolation of the Irish people, who are never wanting in distinguishing between their real and fctitious friends, ans who will not fail to consign t3 suitable retirement those members who prove themselves more interested for the well being of G-eat Britain or their own, than for the freedom and religious snd social smell oration of the people whom they faithlessly represent. Abive all, even with the sacrifice of ~vbat may be deemed by some public duty, let the views of the ableand learned chieof the party recei e from all the cnsideration to which ihc'"r. rj y , fnio.

SLIPS OF THE PEN. Chbaler's Journal. When Mrs. Caxton innocently made her wiser-half the father of an anachronism, that worthy scholar was much troubled in conee quaene. His anachronism was a living one, or he might have comforted himself by refllot. log tbhegreater anthors than be bead stood in the same paternal pre.ieament. Our old Eng lish dramatists took tremendoos libertieathis way, never allowing conaiderations of time and place to star d in the way of any alleston like ly to tell with their andience. Shakespeare would have been slow to appreciate a modern manager's anxiety for arobsmlogical fidelity. His Greeks and Romans talk about cannoers and pistols, and his Italian clowns are thor ough cookneys, familiar with every nook and corner of London. And so it is with other caterers for the stage. Nat Lee talks about cards in hie tragedy of "Hannibal;" Otway makes Spartan notables caronse and drink deep; Mrs. Cowley's Lacedemonian king speaks of the nighit' still Sabbath ; D'Urfey's ancient Britons are familiar witu Puritans and packet-boats; aend Rymer (though he set himself up for a critic) supplies a stage direc tion for the representative of his Saxon heroine to pull off her patches when her lover desires her to lay aside her ornaments When Colman read " Inkle and Yarloo"-to Dr. Moseley, the latter exelaimed,..It won't do. Stuff! Nonsense!" "Why t" asked the alarmed dramatist. "Why, youo say in the finale Come. let us dance and sing, While all ar bacoes bdlls shall ring ! It won't do; there is but one bell in the island 1" This mistake was excusable enough; but when Milton described "A green mantling sine That crawls along the side of yon small hill," he muse.certainly have forgotten be had laid the scene of "Comoe" in North Wales. Ernest Jones, describing a battle in his poem," The Lost Army," says: " Delay and doubt did more that hoer Than bayonet charge or carnage shower;" and some lines further on pictures his hero "All worn with wounds, when day wuas low. With severed sword and sahatterd shield;" thus making hie battle rather a trial of the respective powers of ancient and modern weapons than a conflict between equqlly armed foes. Mr. Thackeray perpetrates a nice little anachronism in "The Newcomee" when he makes Clive, in a letter dated 183-, quoting an Academy exhibition critique, ask: "Why have we no picture of the sovereign and her augnet consort from Smee's brush f"-the author, in his anxiety to compliment the artist, forget ting that there was no consort till 1840. A bull in a china shop is scarcely more out of place than a bull in a serious poem, but ac cidents will happen to the most regular of writers. Thus Milton's pen slipped when he wrote "The es 's-girt isles That like to rich and various gems inlay The unadorned bosom of the deep;" a quotation reminding as that, the favorite citation "Beauty when anadorned, adorned the most," is but a splendid bull, beautiful for its b>ld. ness. Thomson was an adept at making pretty bulls; here is another: " He saw her charming, but he saw not half The charms her downcast modesly concealed;" as if it were possible to see some of them, al though they were concealed. Pope, carrect Pope, actna!lly tells us " Yonne Mare. nn bil boundless mind. A work t' otltat inmortal Rome designed." The author of "The Spanish Rogue" makes " a silent noise" invade the ear of his hero. General Taylor immortalized himself by per petrating one of the grandest b ills on record, in which he attained what a certain literary professor calla "a perfeclion hardly to be sr passed." In his presidential address he an nounced to the American Congress that the United States were at peace fiithl all the wcorld. and continued to cherish relatioce of amity with the rest of mankind. Much simpler was the blaunder of an English oflizer, during the Indian mutiny, who informed the public, through the Timnes that, thanks to the prompt measurs of Col. Edwards, the Sepoys at Fort Machison "were all unarmed and taken aback and, being called upor, laid down their arms." There was nothing very astonishing in an Irish naperstatiog that Robespiere "left no children behind him, except a brother, who was killed at the same time ;" bat it was startling to have an English journal assure as that her majesty Queen Victoria was "the last person to wear another man's crown." A single illchosen word often snffioes, by the suggestion of incongruous ideas, to render what altooul, be eublime utterly ridiculous. One can hardly believe that a poet like Dryden could write "My soul is packing up, and just on wing." Buch a line would have come with better grace from the author of " The Courageous Turk," a play containing the following curious pas sage: "How now, ye heavens I grow you So proud, tbatyoa must needs put on curled o heks, And clothe yourself in periwigs of tire I" Nearly equalled in absurdity by this f:om Nat Lee's (E lipas :" ' Iach trembling ghost shall rise. And leave their grlsly kimn without a waiter." When the news of Captain Cook's death at Owhyhee came to England, the poetasters, of course, bhastened to improve the occasion, and one of the results of their enthusiasm was a monody commenoing: "Minerva in heaver diseonsolate mourned The Ios of her Cook;" an opening sufficient to upset the gravity of the great navigator's dearest friend. Addison lays it down as a maxim, that when a nation abounds in physicians it grows thin of peop!e. Fillibnster Heoninpen seems to have agreed with the essayist, or he would hardly have informed General Walker, in one of hise dispatches, that "Dotors Rice and Wolfe died of the eholera, and Dr. Lindley sickened, after whioh the health of the camp risibly ilprored n Intentionally or not, the stout hearted soldier asuggests that the best way of getting rid of the chloers is to make short work of the doctors. Among the obituary notices in a weekly paper, not many months ago, there appeared the name of a certain pub lioan, with the following ealogium appended to it: "He was greatly esteemed for his striot probity and steady conduct through Iife, he having been a sobscriber to the Sunday Time. from its first number." This is a wortmy pen dant to Miss Hawkins' story of the uoder taker writing to the corporation of Londou, "I am deeired to inform the Courtof Aldermen, Mr. Alderman Gill died last night, by order of Mrs. Gill ;" and not far short, in point of ab nurdity, is Madame Tusasnd'. announcement if the exhibition of the eftdligy of the no:orions ,Palmer, '" who was exeonted at 8itafford witco two hundred other celebrities." The modern fashbion of naming florlist' tlwers most ba held risponsible for the very ldnlioar para graph we e.rrVt frow a g.rdenincg pip: Mn. di wil be looed afer; she may nod bee e r as sameo, bet ebe wee severthe lees vey fie in the early part of the season. Lady Popsam is aefral, one of the oldM fabton ed beld, not quite round in the outline, but makes up well." Thackersy sems to hbare had ano intense dislike to the trouble of revision, for his popu lar wo-ke, especially those published periodi oally, abound in trivial mlstakes, arising from baste, forgetfnlness ano want of care. The novelist mortally wonods ao old lady with a oandle instead of ocandleetick, and afelterwards attributes her death to a stone stairoase. Newoome senior is colonel and major at one and the asame time ; Jack Belise. Is Jaek on one peae and Obhares oa the other; Mrs. Ray mood (ray, introduood as Emily, is suddenly rechristened Fanny; and Philip Fermor on one oocasion becomes transformed lato the author's old hero, Clive. With respect to the last mentioned gentleman, author and artist seem to have differed. for while Mr. Thackeray jeste about Clie's beautioful wbiskersand handsome moustaches, Mr. DJole persists to the end in denying og ou Newoomes possesion of those tokens of manhood. It is not often that an author is satirlial upon his own productions; but Charles Diokens has contrived to be so. Decrabling the old lons of the B trough in hi "Piokwiok Papers," he mays they are queer places, with galleroen pasagese and stairoases wide enough and antiquated enough " to furnish materials for a hundred ghnat stories. suppostag ire should ever be reduced to the lamestable ntrceity of is renting any."
