OP! X ION OF POI'K CLEMENT VIII.
"The cur iosity drawn to the Jesuits
is gathered from everywhere; over all,
In the confessionals, to know from the
penitent, whatever passes in her house,
between herchlldren, sjrvants, or other
persons who are domiciled with them,
or to whom they come, and every inci
dent which may happen. If they con
fess a prince they have the power to
govern a'l h'.o states, desiring to govern
for him, and making him to believe
that nothing will go well without their
care and industry."
It is not a philosopher who looks out
for the Jesuits; it is the chief of the
church; let us see the judgments by its
third general, Francisco Borgia.
"The time will arrive very soon, in
which the "Company of Jesus' will be
come very solicitous in the human
sciences, but without a single applica
tion to virtue, the ambition will be to
dominate, the overbearing and pride
penetrating its soul, to rule alone and
no one can refrain them. The spirit of
our brethren is trampled upon by an
unlimited passion for temporal goods,
an eagerness to accumulate with the
utmost ardor of the worldly."
Here is a prediction that does not
pertain to Voltaire nor to Mlchelet,
but to Gerome Lanuz&, bishop of At
"Robbing the alms given to the poor.
to tho beggars and tho sick, drawing to
tliein the rabhlo. Contracting
familiarities with women and teaching
them to wrong their hunbanus and to
give them th.'ir good to hide."
"A long time have we seen tho sojlety
of tho Jesuits in imminent danger of a
sudden decadence, for many bad heads
and evil maxims predominate among
(Letter of San Carlo of the Kith of
April, 17."iti, to M. Spoelaup.)
"Wo have no religious order more
prejudicial to tho universal church, or
who have made themselves more re
volting to christian provinces," etc.
(Bishop Palafoz to I'opo Innocent X.
Letter II, Chapter III, pages 115, 110.
Wo read in tho sentence given by the
parliament of Franco of ltKiJ:
'The institute of the Jesuits is inad
missible, for its nature in ita whole
estate Is contrary to natural right, oji
iosed to all authority, spiritual and
temporal, ami on tho road to introduce
under tho cloak of a religious institu
tion, a body politic, whose essence cou
slsts in a continual activity, to reach
by whatever way their desire, direct
or indirect, secret or public, until first
an absolute independence, and succes
sively the usurpation of all authority."
Tho sentence of J702 contained the
following paragraph relating to the
moral of the Jesuits:
"The moral practice of the society of
the Jesuits is perverse, destructive of
all religious principle and of probity;
injurious to the christian morality ; per
nicious to civil society; seditious and
contrary to tho rights and nature of the
royal power, and to tho sacred persons
of tho sovereigns, and to the obedience
of tho subjects; they are adapted to ex
cite the greater revolts In the states,
and to reform and eustain the most pro
found corruption in the hearts of men."
in reply to a brief of Pope Clement
XIII., Charles III. being king of Spain,
he expressed the following, relating to
the Jesuits: "I can assure your holi
ness that I have the proofs, the most
efficacious, of the necessity of expelling
the whole company, and not any one 'n
particular. I repeat to your holiness
with a new assurance, and for your con
solation I pray God that he will inspire
what I believe."
When Clement XIV. had signed the
extinction of tho Jesuits he wa found
seated in his office, and said in the
pit sence of a person distinguished for
his merit and his class, "I have made
this suppression, and I do not repent it;
but I was not determined until I had
examined to the end, and fully reflected
and having bjlieved it useful and nec
cessary for the chuich, making it anew
if it had not already done so; ma qwxta
gojmmoue mi ura fa moift" "al
though this suppression shall occasion
No one knew how to ii te rpret a pas
quinade at the entrance of the palace of
the holy father, which contained these
five letters: I. S. S S. V. Clement
XIV. explained them in this manner,
"in Sittembrt- Sara ikde I'ui'awfe." In
September the holy see will be vacant.
Clement XIV. died with a devouring
heat in the throat, stomach and intes
tines, ceasing to exist after terrible
colics. At the end of his death, his
body was clean, became black and de
composed in great pieces.
Twice had the life of the holy father
been attempted by poison in the month
of April, and at last in June, 1774.
"The Jesuits had devoted themselves
to poverty!!! We have found thd
Jesuits in power and perhaps with ail
the riches of South A merle; not ceas
ing to augment their wealth by the in
dustry of its traffic which has been
extended until they have opened not
only markets of cattle, meat and fish,
bu. the stores for the smallest of trade!"
(Second letter of Bishop Palafoz to

Benedict XIV., by a bull of D.iceiu
ber, 1741, prohibited the Jesuit. "They
dare, before us, to enslave the Indians
of Paraguay, to s.'ll ihem, or buy them,
etc., beparatirg mothers from
their children, and to desfMiil them of
their good and property." (Page 27.)
A few days lu fore his death, Father
Laehalse said to Louis XIV , "Sir, I
council you to clt ct a confessor in our
company well disjKised to your majesty,
for at this lima they are very much
scattered, numerous and composed of
characters very diverse and I in pas
sloned for tho glory of tho lody. No
one can answer for a misfortune, and
one evil blow may very soon b.j given."
Tho king took care to throw down the
proposition, and It was referred to
Marechal, his chief physician, the
which In his first terror he revealed to
Blouin, ilrstchambjrlaln, and to Bolduc
tho first apothecary, his particular
friend, and from whom we have this
and many other anecdotes.

Pope Innocent XIII. reproached the
Jesuits for having been, in Pekin, the
prime movers and solicitors of tho in
carceration of tho missionaries, declar
ing that for that unheard of scandal,
re presenting the paper of the eon
stables for their impr.sonment and
jailors for keepers, over all for the re
spect to Pediui, Appiani and Guingues,

"When other religion possesses secret
constitutions, privileges which they do

forever hidden? The church
does not limit that which illumines the
reason of man, and by the contrary it
abhors totally the darkness,
and for this will come, as much is any
desire, the privileges, the instructions,

there are in the abodes of the Jesuits,

The Nun Y ho Escaped From the Hotel
Dieii, Montreal, Canada. Fresh l)e
velopnieiits. In the winter of 1800 and 1S01 the
celebrated Chas. Chiniquy, commonly
called Father Chiniquy, and now proba
bly the most famous ex-priest in the
world was in Washington, D. C. Here
he delivered a course of nineteen lec
tures on Romanism. He was then in
his 82ad year, be ing now 1805, he would
be 86 years old.
It fell to my lot to serve as his assist
ant and I was with him daily for about
three wei ks. Being one day alone with
him in his room, 1 asked whether he
knew anything about the story of Maria
Monk and her famous book, Awful Dis
closures. Chiniquy was about 20 years
old at the time of Miss Monk's escape,
in 1835; and I knew that he had been
much in Montreal where the Hotel Di.-u
is situated. He replied that ho did, and
that one occasion, when he had becom?
too ill to continue his arduous labors as
a priest and "Apostle of Temperance,"
as he was often called, his bishop sant
him to that very hotel to take some
needed rest, saying to him: "The sisters
will give you a room, and nurse you
tenderly, and you will soon recover your
usual health." While he was theio a
very old nun often c;tme into his room
to minister to his wants: and one day
he asked her whether she know any
thing of the story of Maria Monk. She
replied that she was well informed on
that subject, and had read her book,
"Awful Disclosures." "Well now, "says
Chiniquy "were you here during the
time when she elaimes to have been
here?" "Yes," she said, "I was here
and I knew her well." "Then," says
he, "I wish you would tell me whethor
the awful statements she has made of
deeds done in this nunnery were true."
Upon this question, the old nun as
greatly agitat d and begged to be ex
cused from answering; but on being
pressed for an answer, consented, pro
vided he would promise never to reveal
anything she said until after her death.
He promised, and she then stated that
Miss Monk's statements in that book
were true; and says she, "I have seen
worse things done here than anything
that she has told."
My attention was again turned to the
Maria Monk affair, by seeing a little
phamphlet recently published in Lon
don, Eng., by a Catholic house, endeav
oring to prove that Miss Monk's Aw
ful Disclosures were a fraud. I read
I the phamphlet through; but it does not
sim to me to disprove any part of ber
ttory. Beaidei, this statement of the
Rev. Chiniquy 1 a dlivct confirmation

to select a refuge with any promise of

her beauty, breadth of mind, dauntless
courage, and sublimity of character,
cox hi tied with such lovable traits and
womanly graces as commended her for
this charge in a time of great peril.
Her love of jjstiee, hatred of wrong,
and unfaltering devotion to humanity,
decided the question, and watchman
Hogan seized a favorable opportunity,
and secretly hurried Maria Monk to
Mrs. Reeve's residence where she and
Mrs. Hogan welcomed her at midnight.
She was immediately secreted on the
top floor, previously prepared for her,
which she oscupled for months, where
when restored to health and strength,
she wrote her famous book, Awful Dis
closures." "The truths it contained were ter
ibly emphasized by tho subsequent
excitement, and flood of vituperation
with malignant persecution, coupled
with threats of assassination."
"It is idle folly to attempt to discredit
her book in the face of the venomous
