Our insertion of the following article is attended with regret that the worthy and intelligent writer should waste so much of his precious time in thus noticing a miserable apostate who As is customary with the vast majority of All such characters endeavours to screen his Well known motives and conduct by to reducing the doctrines and the discipline of the holy Catholic Church he has thus abandoned.

Sir a when i addressed you in my former communication i had seen hut the first part of your a narrative a and of course my strictures were confined to it. I he continuation and conclusion have since appeared and As i have Given my name to the Public i deem it due to myself As Well As to the cause of truth to prosecute my observations. It matters not in what manner 1 May be surrounded and he mined in by the criticisms of the editors of the paper into whose columns a have been reluctantly admitted fads arc what i propose and Appeal to these w ill not be invalidated by any Quot Hast 1/ remarks Quot or a desultory observations within their own premises 1 stand in defence of truth and in vindication of innocence. 1. A the priests Here a you say a a. Well As in All their writings teach the doctrine of before you condemn the priests for so doing you should understand what is the definition of Peiu aut. If you mean that they teach that exterior austerity will a face their sins without the Interior dispositions of sorrow and contrition i explicitly deny that you were Ever taught any such doctrine. By prance the Catholic Church Means that atonement for sin which not Only rends the heart but evinces itself in the exterior. But at the same time you were taught that no exterior austerity or mortification will be of any Avail unless it be accompanied by a Hearty sorrow and an unfeigned it Testal Ion of sin. Have you yet to a earn after Reading your Bible for so Many years that st. Paul a chastised his body and reduced it into servitude lest White he preached unto others he himself might become a n of sir the same spirit which urged the apostle of nations to chastise Liis body induced the gentlemen of the College to make use of the a a chains and the a discipline a with which you affirm a they lashed let any one who May have curiosity enough to make the Experiment visit the College and put the question to the Quot priests Quot would these a a implements of penance to of any of Icet towards the remission of sin if your hearts be not converted and purified and 1 stake my reputation As a minister of the Catholic Church that the reply would be a none whatever there must necessarily he a self abasement Quot a sin loathing Quot a restitution Quot a the tree must necessarily prove itself Good by bringing Forth a Good 2. A the priests at the colleges you continue a was Well As in their books also teach that we can do works of again i must ask if you know what is meant by a works of super rotation a is it meant that we Are commanded to do More than we Are Able to do this were it meant that we should do More than lore the lord our iod with All our hearts with All our strength with All our minds this is impossible. But it is not difficult to conceive How hat divine Precept of the gospel May inspire the Christian to do More than he is absolutely obliged to do. For instance i am obliged to love my Neighbour but there is no Law com pulling me to expose my life to save his. If then i should perform such an act of heroism i perform a a work of i d 1 More for my fellow Christian than i am in strict duty bound to do. This will give your readers an idea of those a works a which you so strangely misrepresent a and which a you state a Are put to the credit of our poor connections and friends who Are in 1 am not disposed to enter upon a controversial argument it were perfectly useless for me to do so with one who in his conscience knows that every Tenet of Lito Catholic Church properly and fairly understood is founded on the two fold Hasis of scripture and tradition. You say it was a pity the a Rich Many had not some kind priest when on his death bed to get him into Purgatory a intimating by this sentiment that we believe souls departing in the state of mortal sin May be benefited by prayers &.c. We acknowledge no such belief on the contrary we hold it incontrovertible that a soul leaving his world in grievous sin far front going to Purgatory will he condemned to that place of woe a where there is wailing and gnashing of by Purgatory we mean a Middle state in which those defects and Imperf co tons Are expiated which might not have Beca fully atoned for in this life.
