The word of God is not bound by systems of human philosophy, by the discoveries of science, nor by theology. It is not bound by diversities of character. Even differences of language are no barriers to the word of God. It is not bound by chronological boundaries.

"The discussion was listened to with profound attention, and was truly able, well reasoned and eloquent, and well worthy of the reputation

The Curate and the Rector fare but poorly under it, they are kept by it near the starving point. And what the Heathen gain by it is unknown; we hope largely. There was a jubilee not long since in England, in the Society for Propagating the Gospel; but no one we fear, spoke of the 'great salaries' received by Bishops and Archbishops, or inquired how far these amounts might help relieve and educate the poor."

Catholic

259 - DT1) Feb. 20; ed: 2/2 - Brownson's lecture can only strengthen Kossuth. It is plain - he makes it so - that the Hungarian is opposed o:ly because Catholics like him fear the fall of the church if he shall suc ceed. Will generous men approve such views? Will liberal Catholics sustain them? If Religion or rather the Church which claims to have it is made an instrument of desputism, it carnot stand. Superstition may hold it up for a while. The bayonet may apparently give it strength. But it is not in the power of either or both to give it life, to perpetuate it while it is thus corrupt and brutal.

"Brownson is thunderstruck at the doctrine of Kossuth. If that doctrine were favorable, in his opinion, to the mother Church, he would sustain it, with all his might...."

260 - DTD May 8; ed: 2/1 - We received a paper published in St. Louis entitled THE SHEPHERD OF THE VALLEY. The paper is devoted to Romanism.

"The tone of the SHEPHERD OF THE VALLEY is arrogant and insolent and its plea for despotism is both bold and extreme. It takes Brownson's view... that all within the church is holy; all without it heathen." (7)

261 - DTD May 10; ed: 2/2 - A bill was introduced into the New York legislature proposing to make Catholic bishops corporator sole as far as the church property was concerned. Remonstrances were sent in by Catholics and the bill was defeated.

"The Catholics on one side say, the policy... is wrong in itself but it becomes intolerable when we are called upon to give the entire legal control of Church property to foreign authority....

"On the other side it is contended that the Bishops really now hold the property...and that, therefore,...it is better to regulate the whole matter by law.

"Evidently, this question about Church Property is destined to excite a deal of controversy in the Catholic Church."

262 - DTD May 13; ed: 2/1 The second national convention of the Catholic church of the United States convened May 9 at the Metropolitan cathedral, Baltimore.

At a preliminary meeting, three "promoters," a "superintendent of sulspician," two secretaries, a notary, two chaunters, and a master of ceremonies were chosen by the archbishop of Baltimore. Following this, impressive ceremonies lasting more than two hours formally opened the convention.

265 - DTD Jan. 15; ed:2/2 - The Rev. Orville Dewey, D.D., the distinguished Unitarian so renowned for his "liberal" construction of the gospel, has removed to Washington; and we see it announced that Fillmore is one of his hearers. The President will undoubtedly receive "aid and comfort" from the Doctor's prescriptions. This "liberal" divine has avowed that he "would send his own mother back to slavery, if necessary to save the Union." In his late course of lectures in Boston on the "Problem of Human Destiny," Dr. Dewey explained to his own satisfaction, though not quite to that of others, "why the steps of humanity are so slow and painful in this world."

"We should have said, it is largely owing to the presence of doctors of divinity so 'liberal' as to be willing to make slaves of their mothers.
