We Llave seen of late the Busy olt Orts which the american education society had made and Are still using for the prom Ulion of their schemes the diffusion of their sectarian and illiberal principles satan like these organized disorganized can transform themselves into Angels of Light and strange to say they have gulled even some members of Congress into a notion of the great Utility of their scheme we do not say that said members were apprehensive of Losi Eig their election in the next political Campaign owing to the wily Workings of those wicked ones of the calvinistic tribe if they did not respond to the eventually demoralizing projects of a false education society of no. Politician Are never influenced by such paltry considerations the Jar kills of this society Are scouring the country in quest of tuu Der and Strain every nerve to Pervert the minds of a virtuous but credulous people. When driven from their Strong holds in cities by the Power of Public sentiment Aud the Force of Catholic truth the society Send of their trumpeters to the outskirts of society or the Interior of the country to blow the blast of calumny and falsehood against the holy Catholic Church. The .111-ttexed extract shews the tying character of the society and that they will stoop to every thing but is wicked and false for the realization of their nefarious schemes we shall Only observe that the lie w hich the i round by Rev. Agent of the a a american education society Quot uttered in his mock orthodox pulpit had been justly exposed sometime ago in the columns of our paper How Welt grounded is the ullage thut Fulse religion require falsehood to support it the Stock reformat one of the 16th Century irresistibly demonstrates the fact. What Benefit can result to the rising generation from an education society whose Agelus and professors to a such abominable falsehoods even in the pulpit the Shade of Franklin or Washington May answer. A a the general agent for the american education society preached for us last Sabbath and lie endeavoured to produce Ait excitement in the minds of the congregation with regard to Popery As he termed it which until then i presume has never occupied their thoughts an hour at a time. He says that Popery is pouring in like a flood at the West Aud that it will Ere Long unless protestants exert themselves deluge our Happy country thut the members of Congress will he catholics then a human Catholic president a and then a a Farewell to he related several anecdotes All of w hich i have heard before one of which was that of a Jesuit priest in Boston Thryn Long the Lile of or. act it our readers May remember that a a Malcom Quot himself was obliged to could addict this st Lemeut. This sectarian lie was got up for effect alter his mutilated and pitiful edition of Thomas a Kempis had been justly ridiculed his preface shivered to pieces and has Pride of Editorship humbled in the dust. Ice we Hope in the course of some time to he fortunate enough to hold up to merited execration the name of the itinerant liar who for his Evangelic qualifications bus been Appu muted agent by the american education society. From the Boston courier. Sketch a of the Catholic lecture. Delivered on last sunday evening by the very Rev. T. J. Of flame Rev. This lecture was a continuation of his argument upon the invocation of saints and Angels and the proper reverence and respect belonging to relics and images. The text was taken from acts cd. 19, v. 12, 13. The lecturer commenced by congratulating the Church upon the signal discomfiture of calvinism which had taken up the Rusty Trump of reformation heresy against the infallible Church. He said reason and revelation Tell us that we ought to feel veneration for inc saints now reigning with Jesus and that we ought upon the same principle to reverence and love the mortal remains of those glorified beings whose bodies have been the Temple of tho holy ghost. The saints still speak to us through their mouldering remains. They remind us of the perishable nature of this transitory life where All is vanity except the Conquest of self. They Tell us to gird our loins with a holy determination to walk in the Thorn Road of the Cross that they were once like us and that if we neither sleep nor loiter on the Way we shall shortly join them in singing immortal praises to him who alone is Good and holy and worthy of All love. Could calvinism discover in these delightful associations even a Shadow of idolatry impossible. Yet such is precisely tho respect of the catholics for the relics of the saints As the Catholic catechisms throughout the world would inform the Levi scr of that a Barcli against which the Gates of hell with its spurious reformations and than trial revivals could never prevail. In the old and new testaments Are Many passages justify ing the respect in which catholics hold the relics and images of the saints. The history of the Zvrko 1st Kings shows the veneration in which deity wished it to he held the virtue he thought proper to communicate to it and the punishment which followed any disrespect to it. When Israel carried the Ark into the Field her enthusiasm at the sign of salvation terror struck her foe. But Providence permitted Israel to he once More vanquished and the philistines carried the Ark to Grace the Temple of Dagon. The inspired writer tells us that the next Day a Ami Lay on his face before the Ark of the lord they took Dugon and set him again in his place and Nunin the next Day they found Dagon lying upon his face upon the Earth before the Ark and the head of Dagon and both the Palms of his hands were Cut off. The hand of the lord also scattered disease and death among that people. It was in vain that the Ark was removed by the philistines destruction marked its course through their provinces and desolation showed that god was with it and the enemy was obliged to return it to the servants of the lord alter irreparable losses for having Laid sacrilegious hands upon it. Seventy thousand of the people were struck dead for having looked into the Ark w Hile scripture does not inform us that they even touched it. The deduction of the preacher was that if deity gave such tragical proof of the necessity of treating with veneration the portable Ark of Wood and Gold that his Power Aud glory might he More extensively proclaimed it was at least equally lawful for catholics to venerate the relics of a saints that will Rise immortal at the general loud Zinent Day relics that have once been vilified by the spirit of god. The Ark which was the work of human hands never could have been considered by the almighty Wisdom half As valuable As the body and soul of a Saint a body destined for future glory a soul that is an emanation of the divinity. The almighty killed Oza upon the spot for having i cautiously touched it when he intended to prevent its falling every sensible Man must infer that such an act was intended for our instruction and that we should treat
