MAGUIRE, Thomas, Canadian clergyman, born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, about 1776; died in Quebec in 1854. He was ordained priest in 1800, and after several years was made vicar-general of the diocese of Quebec. In 1820 he was appointed bishop in partibus, and coadjutor vicar-apostolic of Nova Scotia, but declined. In 1826 he went to London to oppose, on behalf of the Canadian secular clergy, an arrangement between the Sulpitians of Montreal and the British government regarding the seigniorial rights of the former. He afterward went to Rome, where he obtained a decision from the propaganda against the Sulpitians. In 1833 he was again charged with a mission to Rome. Dr. Maguire published numerous works dealing with educational and polemical questions, among them "Recueil des locutions vicieuses" ; "Observations d'un Catholique sur l'histoire du Canada par l'Honorable M. Smith" (Quebec, 1827) ; "Clerge canadien venge par les ennemis, ou observations sur un ouvrage recent, intitule. Tableau statistique et politique des deux Canadas" (1835); "Manuel de jurisprudence g l'usage des eccliastiques"; "Recueil de notes diverses sur le gouvernement d'une paroisse, l'administration d'une paroisse, etc., adresse hun jeune curd de campagne" (1845); and "Doctrine de l'Eglise catholique concernant la soumission aux autorit6s civiles."
