A remarkable article appears m the "Centennial Magazine," by Mr Wise, giving an insight into the interference of the Roman Catholic hierarchy and priesthood with ordinary affairs having na connection with religion. It publishes a circular, issued by the Catholic Synod to priests, forbidding their followers to join the Foresters, Oddfellows, Druids, Good Templars, Recha bites, or kindred societies, on pain of de* privation of rites of the Church at their funerals. The circular approves of certain insurance companies.
