PATTERSON, The Right Rev. James Laibd, Bishop of Emmaus, was born in London, Nov. 16, 1822. He was educated at home and in Germany, and at Trinity College, Oxford (S.C.L., 1814; B.A., 18*6; M.A., 1847). From 1845 to 1849 he was Curate of St. Thomas's, Oxford. He was also Treasurer of the Oxford Architectural Society and Secretary of the Oxford Union Society. He travelled in the East in 1849-50, and became a Catholic at Jerusalem in 1850. After studying at Rome from 1850 to 1854, he was ordained priest there by Cardinal Wiseman in March, 1854; was attached to the mission of St. Mary, Moor- flelds, London, from 1855 to 1867 ; to St. James's, Spanish Place, from 1867 to 1870 ; named Honorary Chamberlain to the Poi)e in 1865, Private Chamberlain in 1867 ; and Domestic Prelate in 1872. He was appointed President of St. Ed- mund's College, Ware, in 1870, and was an official of the Ecumenical Council of the "Vatican. He is conventual chaplain of the Sacred Military Order of St. John of Jeru- salem. Monsignor Patterson be- came well known as an eloquent and polished preacher, and there were few priests more respected among the Catholic body in this country. During the years that Mgr. Patter- son was President of S. Ed-

mund's, the most ancient of the Catholic Colleges, that institution flourished in an unprecedented manner. It was at S. Edmund's that the 4th Provincial Synod of the Catholic Hierarchy was held in July, 1873. He published an ac- count of his tour in the East in 1851 ; and in 1878 a new edition of the late Mr. John Francis Maguire's work on " Pius the Ninth," revised and brought down to the accession of Pope Leo XIII. Mgr. Patterson resigned the Presidency of S. Ed- mund's in 1880, and was consecrated titular Bishop of Emmaus, May 10th, 1880, in the Chapel of the English College, Rome, by the Car- dinal Archbishop of Westminster and the Bishops of Clifton and Salford, as an auxiliary for West- minster. Cardinal Manning ap- pointed him Rector of S. Mary's, Cadogan Street, Chelsea, in 1881.

He published, in 1860, " The New Revolution, or the Napoleonic Policy in Europe," a remarkable work, which attracted much attention soon after its publication, owing to the singular fulfilment of several predictions, which it contained ; in 1861, "Essays in History and Art;" in 1864, "The Economy of Capital ;" in 1867, "The Science of Finance ; " and in 1870, " The State, the Poor, and the Country."
