Murray, Hugh: Kingston, (Canada)
 to J(ames) A(lphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

He sends an article on the "Catholic Union" which will prepare or help on the St. Peter's Union. He shall later send something about our Lady in France that will be agreeable to many of McMaster's readers. (Bishop Edward Horan) of Kingston was flattered at the kind reception McMaster gave Murray. McMaster is felt to be one of the household. Murray's brothers wish to be remembered to him. Alfonso (Murray) was quite like McMaster's son when he was a little chap. Alfonso is in the Jesuits for which Murray is happy. There is much less danger in the regular clergy.

A reader of the Freeman's Journal writes a letter to the editor in which he speaks of a ten days' fair held to raise money to pay off debts made in improving St. Stephen's Church at Niles, Ohio. Father (B. B.) Kelley called the venture a great success. A cane was awarded Josiah Robbins of Niles, who was noted the most popular man there. $1,000 were raised through the cane alone.

(St. Vincent's College, Pennsylvania)
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

Copy of an address sent by the students of St. Vincent's College, (Pennsylvania) to the students of Braunsberg Gymnasium, East Prussia, who were lately dismissed by the Prussian government for their faithfulness to their religion. The writer prefaces the address with an explanatory note. Two professors of the symnasium at Braunsberg, named Wohlman and Michebic, were excommunicated by the Bishop of Ermeland—residing at Fruaenberg—for their connection with (Johann Ignaz) Doellinger, (who was excommunicated in April, 1871). Consequently, the Catholic students refused to attend the classees of philiosophy and Christian doctrine taught by these men, for which action the Prussian government presented the alternative that they either attend these classes or retire from the school. The students, being unable to accept the alternative, withdrew from the school. The address, signed by 245 students of St. Vincent's College, praisees the students of braunsberg Cymnasium for their action, assuring them that the hopes and prayers of all Catholics are with them.
