"This was the greatest churchman of the 19th century,"...and there was nothing there -- only dust." ... the cardinal's body had simply disintegrated in the 118 years since it was interred.

Clearly a miracle. Isn't this what happened to Mary? Let's venerate the red tassels. ;O)

The article addresses this specifically:

" Catholic officials quickly dismissed any theories about a conspiracy, speculating instead that since Newman's coffin was -- to their surprise -- wooden, not lead-lined, the cardinal's body had simply disintegrated in the 118 years since it was interred.

In an official statement, Jennings said that "brass, wooden and cloth artifacts from Cardinal Newman's coffin were found. However, there were no remains of the body."

Wooden you know? No surprise here. 'Tis nature.
