AMERICAN CATHOLIC QUARTERLY REVIEW.

RIGHT REV. JAMES A. CORCORAN, D.D.,

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF.

$5.00 per Annum, in Advance, Issued in January, April, July, and October. Each number contains 192

large octavo pages, printed from legible type, on fine white paper,

The REVIEW is the only Catholic Quarterly published in the United States, and is the leading literary exponent of Catholic thought in America. It employs the highest order of literary talent available in this country and in Europe, and treats of all questions of interest to educated Catholics, both clerical and lay.

The INTELLIGENT APPRECIATION of the merits of the REVIEW, heretofore, by the Catholic public, and more especially by the Reverend Clergy, justifies the expectation that an increased measure of support will be accorded to it during the present year.

The Review stands at the head of Roman Catholic publications in this country."-Alta California,

The beauty of the typography has never been excelled on this continent.--Montreal Sun.

Does not infringe upon any field now occupied by any Catholic magazine. It smpir rises above all, and proposes to discuss the nost recondite branches-theological, polemical, scientific, literary and political-that they consider more or less adequately and in their relations rather than in their elements.' -- North American.

"It is a matter of honor to American Catholics that they uphold, by generous support, a Review which represents the finest intellectual and theological culture of the country.Boston Pilot.

As presenting the views of cultivated American Roman Catholics on the great religious and intellectual questions of the day, it merits the attention not only of their brethren in faith, but of Protestants also who desire to give a candid consideration to their opponents' arguments in support of their doctrines._ New York Sun.

We disagree with our opponents; but we cannot afford to be ignorant of what their best men are saying and doing.”—New York Independent.

By all odit's the ablest, most scholarly and most attractive Roman Catholic Review yet issued in the country.”—Presbyterian Banner.

Subscriptions Respectfully Solicited.

IT

T cannot be denied that there dwells in many sincere minds a

lurking suspicion, amounting in some persons almost to a painful conviction, that antagonism exists between certain dogmas of revelation and the results of scientific investigation. Mr. Huxley, Dr. Draper, and other acknowledged leaders of modern thought, have done their utmost to confirm these sinister impressions and to widen the breach between the teachers of religion and those of physical science. They will tell you that the study of nature leads us away from God and ultimately results in the denial of His existence. They maintain that there is and must be an irrepressible conflict between these two great branches of knowledge; that they cannot coexist; and that, in the long run, theology must surrender to her younger and more progressive rival.

They affect to believe that the champions of Christianity, conscious of the unequal conflict, view with alarm the rapid strides of the natural sciences, and do all in their power to discourage the study of them altogether. You will be told, dear reader, by this modern school of thought, that the more you are attached to the teachings of Christian faith, the more will your judgment be warped
