The Catholics and the National troubles.
A tribute of warm commendation is due to the Catholic Church throughout the United States
for the entire abstinence of its clergy from all intermeddling, either one way or the other, with the national troubles.
Protestants is we are, we feel bound to acknowledge and to commend the manner in which they have always held entirely aloof from the antislavery agitation, and in which, during the present troublous times, they have neither taken sides in the North
with the North
, nor in the South
with the South
, but have confined themselves to the appropriate duties of a kingdom which is not of this world.
