Rapid calculation receives special attention. The work throughout the course is in this way made as practical as possible. Letter Writing. Special attention is paid to Letter Writing. In this branch the student familiarizes himself with such points regarding the requisites of correspondence as will enable him to construct, arrange, paragraph, and punctuate a let- ter properly, and so that it will convey the meaning in- tended by the writer. A well written letter is often the turning point in the life of a young aspirant for honor and many a man owes his success to his acquirements along this line. Commercial Law. The object is to familiarize the pupil with the law gov- erning commercial transactions so as to enable him to pro- tect his own interest and so to manage the business of his employer that he will be first to promotion. Business men who employ our students have no cause to complain of their inability to transact business intrusted to their care. Spelling. No course of study can be completed without spelling. This is so important that we give it attention daily. Every letter, check, note, draft, bill, etc., is carefully examined and the student required to re-write it if it contains mis- spelled words. Many young people have lost good posi- tions by not being able to spell. The business world has found our graduates carefully trained and reliable. Offices. Throughout …

Memoir and Letters of Francis W. Newman - Page 359


SOME LEGISLATIVE REFORMS 289 unless previously justified by the verdict of an im- partial tribunal, bound in honour to overlook what is partially expedient to their own nation or partywill be esteemed a high and dreadful crime. These are strong words, but they are not too strong, for, looked at by any thoughtful man or woman, war is an anomaly. It proves nothing by reason ; it simply acts by brute force, and by sheer superior strength the victor, at the swords point, drives defeat down the throat of the defeated. But the arbitrary destruction of thousands of men on each side who slay each other at the word of command (often for no reason that concerns their own welfare, but only on account of some political quarrel), is, from the point of view of civilization, of morality, of hu- manity, without reasonable defence. It throws civiliza- tion, land development, education back incalculably. Indeed, when one regards the matter au fond, one sees that nothing could hinder the true civilization, the true humanity, more than does war. It is barbaric ; there is no other word for it. It is the great flaw that runs throughout the whole garment of humanity. Newman reminds us that it is only within very recent years w that the atrocious system of paying head money to soldiers and sailors for the numbers they kill, was abolished by us. John Stuart Mill very rightly said that our force ought to be as strong as possible for defence and as weak as might be for offence, only that it is so very difficult sometimes to tell which is which.

Catholic philosophers, on the other hand, have ever been careful to distinguish things and the powers and acts by which we apprehend things. The consequence of this is the identification of things in the soul with things outside the soul.. As a young man Newmans mind agreeably conformed to all of this: I used to wish the Arabian Tales were true... my imagination ran on unknown influences, on magical powers, and talismans. I thought life might be a. dream, or I an Angel, and all this world a deception, my fellow angels by a playful device concealing themselves from me, and deceiving me with the resemblance of a material world. C 12) Newmans thesis becomes clearer in another statement: We may call it then the normal state of Inference to apprehend propositions as notions; and we may call it the normal state of Assent to apprehend propositions as things. The latter part of this statement Assent is to apprehend propositions as things sums up the doctrine of the Grammar of Assent. A double inversion of the natural order of thinking occurs when this is granted. First, propositions are taken as the things themselves, an error which Newman supposedly tried to evade in the first place. The entire basis of his belief is that notional propositions cannot be apprehended as things, but only as abstract notions, and yet for some unknown reason he believes the same propositions, when accompanied by images that produce strong feelings in the soul, are apprehended as things. Secondly, Catholic philosophers have never taken any kind of proposition as the thing itself. Ideas, notions, concepts, images, perceptions and propositions are about …
