THE MAYNOOTH SYNOD.
The Irish National Synod which closed its sessions at Maynooth College, on September 20, was the second assemblage of the kind held in Ireland since the passage of the Emancipation Act. The first was held at Thurlos twenty-five years ago; and of all the Irish prelates who attended the first, only four survive to participate in the deliberations of the second. These are Cardinal Cullen, Archbishop Mac Hale, Bishop Delnny of Cork, and Bishop Kelly of Derry. The proceedings at Maynootli, as is the rule in such eases, were conducted in strict secresy, and the decrees passed will not be made public until approved at Itome. Cardinal Cullen, however, in a public address at the close, stated that the statutes adopted were designed " to counteract increasing infidelity and lukewarmness in rel gion and revolution in politics."
