Sir, After the ample comments oa my Pastoral in you article of this morning. I feel, aasored that you will have - the justice and oourteey to publish this, reply on one only poiaU; . The Statute Law of Eagisnd requires that Soma Catholie children jjworkhoases shall be either duly sducatad. in their rsligion within the walls of schools apder the Poor Law, or shall be trsnafarred to schools of their own religion. ; I deny taat either tbe one or the other of these obligations Is at this moment justly .ant adequately iulfilled. ' An i I respectfully aak cf tha Christian, justice of Englishmen, either that the Romaa Catholic children in those . workhouse schools shall receive a due aod aduate eduea tioa in tbeir religion, or that they shall be transferred, according to the Statute La w,to schools of their own religion. .. I beg to clear away at ooce tbe assertion, which well expresses, the misapprehension studiously propagated at this time, that Roman Catholics deem BoUxiug gained unless the whole control of ed 33a tioa is handed over to them. To til I reply ; L Tbat, if the Guardians ef the Poor shall elect, of the two statutory obligations imposed upon them, to provide a toad jCds Roman Catbolio eduoatiou for the children of that religion la their existing schools, aad. shall, la the judgment of the Local Government Board, loud U fulfil tliat engagemeat, I aak no eontrol whatsoever over them or the public money entrusted to their administration. It is because this obligation is notoriously not falhUed at .this moment that I have never ceased, and until It be fulfilled 1 snail never cease, to ask, as an Englishman, of the jus lias - of my countrymen, the .fair dealing which the laws of E3glani'tiaire towards the poor fathers, mothers, aad children of tbe Irish population resident ia this country. Let 'me here make publicly known that I have stall times refused to fix the amount of payment to be made by the Gaardians for the maintenance of the children transferred to onr schjols, Tbe rate of payment has bean tn all . eases fixed either by the Guardians themselves or the Local Government Board. The treatment of the Protestant minority ia Ireland by the great Catholic majority i - i.tbst coaotry,both ia prisons and workhouses, is. just and NUitahla. Let it never be said, to our rebuke, that tha Catholic minority of the Irish poor ia this eoontry cannot obtaio justice st the bauds of. Eagliahaiea, beeaase Englishmen have hrre - the power of the majority. ' 2. Secondly, I mast aid that the fallowing reasons cos - noes me, as I know tney a: tis - time coovuccinaay honourable and experienced gentlemen not of tae Rontaa Catholie religion, who have acted as Guardian and 'as members of the School Committea of the Boar is, that the attempt to form a doable edasitida, Protestant aod Catholic, within the walls of - the same school, would be unwise, inexpedient, and highly iajurioua ta bota classes of theehildrta. as welt as embarrassing to th unity of the general adminutratioo. Aud, fcrUer, that where a small minority of Calhoun etuldrsn is satroua.lad by a great majority of Protestant eh Jdreo, a i lu a case before my mini woatbprportiais eihtor eiue,it is SJ iinpossJile . to eaiieste that small uinoriiy as Catholic as is wo - aid bo , impossible to ediuate 100 PrvtUat childiea among IXX) ' Catholie childraa. The power of assiuiUatiua casiot U voauolled by printed or Poor Law ottiers. It is sdently lrres.stial. . 3.
