THE ROMANCE OF RELIGION. We adopt this prefix, rather for its power of attraction than its appropriateness or applicability. We wish to -draw the attention of our readers generally to the co- lumns collated weekly for the Welshman, and which go under the heart "Religious and Clerical Topics," for they uot seldom possess general interest. One in to- day's paper, for example, reads like a tonaance, although ill truth its subject matter is a sad reality. It "exhibits an awful picture of what the uncontrolled power of the Romish clergy may still dare to effect, and a humilia- ting example of a Government which has allowed the Ties of private right and public law to be broken asunder because it is itself a victim to the worst form of bigotry, and the most servile subjection to spiritual oppression." The details of this case possess a melancholy interest, a* will be seen by'reference to them. They grow out of the principle contended for on behalf of the church of Home, which is this -that any child having completed the age of 12 years may, for any cause, motive, or pre- text, throw off the parental authority, and fling itself under the protection of the Church. If the child be a Protestant, so much the better, since, while it abjures ih filial duties, it abandons its religious faith but whe- ther CiUiotjc or Protestant, the protection of the Church thus sought aud thus given is absolute and inviolable."
