Read —.[advt.] Thomas Keegan, who carried a pike in the Irish rebellion of 1798, died in Neiory, Pa., a few days ago, aged 108 years. He was in excellent health up to the moment of his death, which occurred immediately after smoking his usual pipe after supper. Mgr. Ronay, Bishop af Pressburg, who died last month, was implicated in the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, and was for some years after a refuge in England.

"We want to know the truth." And the Hungarian patriot taught the Austiian prince the hiatcry of his country from the Hungarian point of view. There seems to be a rebound from the scientific acceptance o£ the Darwinian theory of evolution. Two of the ablest scholars in England have taken up the subject at once, each from a different point of view, to show that the time haa come for a re-examination of the Darwinian philosophy it is accepted by a large proportion of the scientific world. Prof. St. George Mivart, himself one of the most di-tinguished investigators of this generation, who criticised Darwin's theory on its first appearance and made an argument against it which Darwin himself confessed bad great weight, has c jntiibuted to Tlie Forum for May his second essay to prove that the theory fails as a scientific theory precisely where man comes in, and that moral deductions made from it are of no weight whatever. He brings forward much interesting evidenca to show the unphilosophic character of Darwin's mind. Prof. Mivart's first essay, which he called ■' Darwin's Brilliant Fallacy,'' appeared in The Forum for March. The other scholar who leads the attack on the Darwinian theory of moral development is Mr. W. S. Lilly, an eminent authority on ethics ; and his argument is from the point of view of a maßter of moral philosophy. —Pilot.
