In a series of recent articles,
Mr. Buck has related "Some Facts
About the Catholic Church." es
pecially touching, on the history of
the American Revolution. Those
of us who have had many, or even
a lew, ancestors in that memor
able struggle, can not well help
being deeply Interested.
By inference, these "Facts"
charge all other than Irish Cath
olio colonials with contemptible
slackerism. All old Americans,
especially those of us who are
proud of Borne non-Catholic Irish
colonial blood, may rightfully In
voke a more authentic history to
defend our family honor In colo

tional crises; for like freposter-
ou8, and offensive charges have
been reiterated after every great
national struggle, including the
It was stated that the Irish
Catholics in the Thirteen Colonies,
furnished Borne ten of the generals
m the American army, and half
the soldiers that did service.
There were indeed several Irish
men who were generals in that
army; but every one, except uen
eral Cohway and General Moylan
was an Ulsterite, and a Protestant
Conway is remembered as the
head of the despicable "Conway
Cabal," that tried to drive Wash
ington out of the army; he ended
his own life in disgrace.
There were 164,000 regulars in
that army, and 145.000 militia
who saw service, a total of 309,-1
000. Half of these would be 154.
000. Cardinal Manning's paper,
The London Tablet, said that out
side of Pennsylvania and Mary
land, the Catholics numbered only
about 1500; Cardinal Gibbons said
there were but a few thousands of
them; and Bancroft, the historian
says the whole number in all the
colonies was about 32,500, of
every nationality. From this total
Catholic population of 32,500 men,
women and children, must have
come this "half the American
army," or 154,000 armed Irish
men! One of these Catholic Irish
men, one Hickey, tried to poison
General Washington; was detect
ed, arrested, tried, found guilty,
and was hanged on June 28,
The Catholic Irish have been
great fighters. A number of
them, soldiers in the American
army in the war with Mexico, de
serted and joined the Mexicans.
They were captured, fighting;
were tried, condemned, and were
executed just arter they were per
mitted to see the American flag,
carried by Americans, float from
the great fortress of Cbapultepec.
The Catholic Irish did indeed
have a great part in the war tof
the Rebellion. Of the total num
ber of men enlisted in the Union
army, 75 per cent were natlvt
Americans, a fraction over 8 per
cent were Germans, a fraction
over 7 per cent were Irish, and
over 8 per cent were from all
other countries. Some of these
soldiers deserted several thous
ands, In fact. Of the deserters, t
Per cent were native Americans.
16 per cent were Germans, and 72
per cent were Catholic Irish.
Every one of the outlaws con
cerned in the murder of President
Lincoln was a Catholic. Booth
wore a Catholic medal when he
was killed; the medal can be seen
at Washington. Pope Pius !Hh was
the only ruler on earth who recog
nized the Confederacy; he wrote
an autograph letter to Jeff Davis,
which letter not a copy is now
preserved in Washington.
Another matter of Interest
might be mentioned in this war
like connection. The Catholic
Irish are scraping up some mil
lions of money in the United
States, to help the Irish rebellion.
Some people have been led to
doubt whether England has a
right to try to govern Ire
land. Yet it is history that
England has a valid title;
for Pope Adrian (Hadrian)
who was elected in ll.'4. and died
in 1159, sold the sovereignty of
Ireland to Henry II of England,
for a money consideration the
price being one penny each year
lor every bouse in Ireland, the
money to be collected and paid
over-by the king.;
