Unknown Irish Seer Foretells

World Events by 150 Years

you will, but an anonymous emi-

Canal, the St. Lawrence Seaway
and the atomic bomb.

the events by over 150 years, were
discovered in a rare volume, "The
Proceedings of the Society of
United Irishmen" recently added
to the Clements Library collection.
Anonymous Prophet
The forecasts are found in an
anonymous article bidding fare-
well to the great scientist, Joseph
Priestly, when he decided to emi-
grate to the United States.
The prophet anticipates the St.
Lawrence Seaway in: "The Missis-
sippi and the St. Lawrence shall
stretch forth their arms to em-
brace . . . through those vast in-
land seas."
He continued his observations
into the future, foreshadowing the
Panama Canal with: "The Pacific
Ocean shall pour into the Atlan-
tic." His crowning prophecy is:
"And why may not the science
which produced gunpowder, pro-
duce another power which, in-
flamed under a certain compres-
sion, might impel the air, so as to
shake down the strongest towers,
and scatter destruction."
English Ban
The book, chiefly concerned
with the fighting Irishmen bat-
tling for representation in parlia-
ment and eventual independence,
was banned by the English when
first published in Dublin. Un-
daunted by this, emigrants
brought it to the U. S. and pub-
lished it in Philadelphia in time to
celebrate St. Patrick's Day 153
years ago today.
