The following is a short
analysis of the last Combination Act, by which it will be seen in a concise and
comprehensive view what, to avoid its penal enactments, the workmen ought not to
do, and what for the protection of their own interests they may do:
| Dean O'Shaugnessy has
received £10 from the Catholic Bishop of Killaloe, towards fitting up a
schoolhouse in Ennis, to accommodate five hundred pupils under the direction of
four monks of the Christian Doctrine Association.
Our readers will observe by the following, that there is no likelihood of the Ecclesiactic's appearance among his creditors, and that the text will be verified "you shall seek me and you shall not find me, and where I am you cannot come."

The Catholic Prelates of Ireland
having finished the business for which they were lately convened in Dublin,
directed their attention to the state of the diocese of Kilmore, when the aged
and infirm Bishop then present, required a coadjutor to assist him in protecting
his flock, from the insidious snares of proselytism, and the desperate attacks
of persecution. After mature consideration, it was resolved that the most Rev.
Dr. Curtis, Metropolitan of the province, the Right Rev. Dr. Magauran, the Right
Rev. Dr. M'Hale, and the Right Rev. Dr. Crolly, should be requested to proceed
to Cavan, where the Right Rev. Dr. O'Reilly had appointed a meeting of his
Clergy, in order to obtain any information in their power concerning the causes
of the defection in some districts under their spiritual superintendence.
Accordingly the Prelates and the Clergy of Lismore assembled in the town of
Cavan on Thursday, the 14th inst. and intended to commence their religious
proceedings in the Chapel, but were prevented by five itinerant preachers, who
had previously collected a crowd at the Chapel gate, for the purpose of exciting
the Catholics to a breach of the peace, and thereby defeating the peaceful and
important object for which the meeting of the Catholic Clergy had been convened.
When the first scheme adopted by the Biblicals was frustrated by the prudence of
the Prelates, they received an insolvent letter, signed by five of the Biblical
gentry, who called for a public discussion with Dr. Curtis, and the other
Bishops, on subjects of religious controversy. From a becoming sense of their
own dignity, the Prelates treated this impudent communication with silent
contempt, and remaining at the Inn, proceeded with their important
| William Reilly, of the parish of Killincare,
schoolmaster, came forward to swear that Robert Murrow, of Ballyjames'duff,
promised him a situation in one of the schools, on condition that he should
embrace the Established Religion; that he did not embrace the offer, and was
supported during three weeks by Lady Farnham, whilst he was preparing for the
management of a school ;but that remorse of conscience tormented him until he
returned and was reconciled to the Catholic Church.
Catherine Fitzpatrick, of the parish of Kilmore, schoolmistress, offered to swear, that George Kildee, one of Lord Farnham's moral agents, proposed to give her five pounds in hand, and five pounds annually, adding that her brother should receive ten pounds in hand, and ten pound per annum, on condition that they would read their recantation in the Church of Cavan.
Bryan Smith, of Durham, in the parish of Killincare, profered to swear, that he was a Roman Catholic, that Brenan, who had lately abandoned the Catholic Church, and a preacher, named Jackson, called at his house on the 7th inst. and endeavoured to prevail on him to become a Protestant as Brenan had done , promising that he would procure him twelve pounds, and a farm of land on such terms as would make him comfortable during the remainder of his life; and that when they were unable to induce him to join them, they left him two books, one of them which was entitled Andrew Dunn's conversion.
On Sunday, the Prelates preformed Divine Service in the Chapel of Cavan, when the immense multitude that attended from morning and evening afforded clear evidence that the new reformation is not much relished by the Catholics in that part of the country. The Primate, Doctor Crolly, and Dr. M'Hale, addressed the audience at their different hours, during which the piety and fervour of the congregation proved clearly that they will bear the most distressing privations, and endure any species of persecution, rather than abandon the spiritual consolation of their holy religion.
Having explored the sources, and exposed the schemes of proselytism, the Clergy of Kilmore proceeded to elect a Coadjutor to their aged and venerable Bishop; and in the discharge of this duty, gave an instance of integrity, that would not dishonour the ages of primitive purity. Anxious to promote the glory of God, and the interest of religion, they forgot every privatge attachment, and extending their impartial and religious views beyond the boundaries of their own diocese, selected three individuals eminently distinguished for virtue and talents, whose names are forwarded to Rome, that the head of that Church may appoint one of them to assist their venerated Prelate in the discharge of his arduous duties.
Such is the plain and faithful outline of the facts communicated to the Prelates during this important investigation, which was thus brought to a happy and satisfactory conclusion.
