A rescript has been lately received by the Most Reverend

Dr. Crolly, Archbishop of Armagh, from his Holiness the Pope, which directs " the Prelates and the clergy of this country to abstain from all political agitation, to attend exclusively to their religious duties, to inculcate universal peace and charity as the bond of Christian perfection ; but, above all, to recommend, by word and example, honour and submission to the ruling powers. The Holy Father proclaims this as the genuine doctrine of the Catholic Church at all times and under all circum- -stances."—Dublin Monitor.

The Dublin Monitor states that there is a difference of opinion be- tween Mr. O'Connell and the majority of a Committee of the Repeal Association, on the subject of the Charitable Bequests Act.
