RELIGIOUS POLEMICS. PROSECUTION OF CARDINAL WISEMAN. The Weekly Chronicle states that at the Guildhall, on Saturday, a gentlemen applied to the sitting Magistrate, Alderman Challis, to know whether tbe late acts of tbe Pope, did not render his emissaries, or those executing his commands, liable to any penalty?âThe Alderman staled that the Acts!) and 10 Vict., alluded to by the applicant, ceitainly took away the penalties instituted by the 13th of Elizabeth, cap. 52; but at the same time any one might, he thought, constitute himself a prosecutor, and indict Cardinal Wiseman, or sAty one else actin;; in a similar manner, to forward the views of the Pope, before any Justice of the Peace, in the district wherein the offence was committed, He had no doubt, but that a little imprisonment would do the Cardina) "ome Rood, but he would not like to be the party com- mittiriR him. However, he anticipated that there would be no necessity to resort to such a measure, as be bad reason to be- lieve, that the Cardinal had already received notice to quit Lon- don, within forty-eight hours, or take the con"enuence!i âThe applicant iben thanked his Worship and withdrew. During thc moi nine's service at the Chapel of St. Barnabas Pimlico, a large crowd^ollected outside the edifice, liootine and yelling and rendered it necessary to close the gates. A police torce having been sent for, enabled thecongicga ion to leave un- molested. Cardinal W lseman did not preach at St. (jcorei-'s Church, on Tuesday morning. ADDRESS OF THE CATHOLICS OF ENGLAND TO ,ri THE QUEEN. 'c Address, which is understood to be from the pen 01 cardinal Wiseman-a fact which gives additional importance to it lay at. the various Roman Catholic Churches and Chapels on Sunday last, and was otherwise cnculated, with the view of obtaining signatures to it, to testify the loyalty of the Catholics dignity''3 l° ^Iaj8sly s '°ya^ pcison, crown, and tt To the Queen's Most Excellent Majesty." May it please your Majesty âWe, the undersigned, subjects ot your Majesty, residing in England, and professing the Roman Catholic religion, beg to approach your Majesty's throne, theie to expiess our sentiments or unimpaired and unalterable fidelity to your Majesty's royal person, crown, and dignity. "At a moment when attempts are being made to impeach our loyally, we consider it a duty to give freuli utterance tu those our feelings. "Dunng centuries of exclusion from the privileges of the Constitution, and from the jrigbts enjoyed by their fellow-sub- jects, the Catholics of England remaiDed true to their allegiance to the Crownol ibis realm,jand yielded to none in their read Iness, at all time,, to defend its rights and its prerogatives againsteverv foe. And now that, under your Majesty's wise rule, we enjoy equal participation withothersm the benefits of the Constitution we are more than ever animated with the same seniiinents of fidelity and attachment, and are equally leady to i;ive proof whenever occasion may present itself, of the sincerity of our loyal professions. The dearest of the privileges to which we have thus been ad- mitted, by the wisdom of the British Legislature, is Ihatofopen- ly professing and practising the religion of our fathers, in com- munion with the See of Rome. Under its teaching we have learned, as a must sacred lesson, to g). e to Caesar the things that are of Cicsar, as we give to God the things that are of God. In tv/iatcver, therefore, our Church has at any time done, for estab- lishiriR lis regular system of government amongst its members im this island, we beg most fervently and most sincerely to assure your Majesty, that the orgaDlzation granted to its, is entirely ec- clesiastical, and its authority puiely spiritual. But it leaves un- touched every tittle of your Majesty's rights, authority, power, jurisdiction, and prerogative, as our Sovereign and as Sovereign over these realms, and does not in the leastwise diminish or im- pair our profound reverence, our loyally, fidelity, and attachment to your Majesty's august persou and throne; and we humbly assule your Majesty, that among your Majesty's subjects there exists no class u bo more solemnly, mole continually, or more! fervently pray lor the stability of your Majesty's throne, for the preservation of your Majesty's life, and foi the prosperity of your Majesty's empire, than ihe Catholics of England, in whose religion loyally is a sacred duty, and obedience a Christian virtue."
