Own Parliament IIIca Dublin City Lost Meeting of the Irish Vol his untcer Convention in theacYear 1783 Lord Charlcmont Responsible For the Double Triumph of England to ACTIVITY OP THE BISHOP OF DERRY he of Grattans Volunteers we are used to calling them but though Grattan and Flood were the leading spirits of that the grand movement that secured an inde pendent Parliament for Ireland it was Lord Charlemont their Commanderin Chiefwho dissolved them suddenly in the hour of their greatest promise on December 11783 IIIet us imagine writes the historian ble Thomas Mooney lithe Repeal Associa tion of Ireland suddenly dissolved by Daniel OConnell or Smith OBrien and we will then have an idea of the nature of this extraordinary deed We all know how the Volunteers owed their birth and maturity to the American War for Independence how when they felt themselves strong enough they de manded and got of the British larlia a meat the right to have the laws for Ire land made in an Irish Parliament in College Green how the establishment of that Irish Parliament was followed by the most unexampled national prosper ity which the annals of any nation or any time can exhibit Irelands agriculture fisheries mines L manufactures all sources of national employmentwere fostered and protected- b the home parliament canals made rivers rendered navigable ships builtc Tradesmen from England Scotland and France came to Ireland for employment and there was no immigration of Irish a workmen seeking employment- But the Volunteers who were the orig inators of that Parliament were also its constituted guardians They early saw via it was one thing to have an independent kr u =dkerl1tliagJJJkeepillJ i dependent The peop ewere not proper y represented in it to insure its safety a Of the 300 members only sixtyfour rep resented counties A few lords and wealthy commoners owned the big ma jorityj of the seats and there was noII surety that the British Government could not buy these when it suited it to trIand worst of all Catholics had none of the seats No Catholic could sit in Parliament no Catholic could even voteSo Parliamentary refonn came to be the one topic of interest and a grand meeting of the Irish Volunteers from all parts of Ireland was called to assemble in Dublin on the 10th of November 1783 to discuss and frame necessary measures of reform looking to the equal representation of all the people of Ireland in their own Parliament Henry Flood was the leading spirit of this move for re form Grattan was not sure of the need of casting any suspicion on the integrity of the Irish Parliament or Englands sin cerity in granting it His confidence in the honesty of British promises was the cause at that time of an open rupture with Henry Flood which was never healedNovember 10 saw a most imposing demonstration as the delegates from every volunteer company in Ireland assembled in the Rotunda The state of affairs in Ireland was then seriously felt by the English Cabinetit became alarmed Ireland now stood in a high station No longer in the language of Gibbon a remote and obscure island she formed a new feature on the face of Eu rope The firing of twentyone guns announced the first movement of the dele L gates marching to the Rotunda The convention assembled and among the first of the plans for reform presented for consideration was the right of Catholics hitherto excluded to sit in the Irish Parliament The Bishop of Derry championed the Catholic plea but to no pur pose It was entirely out of the question to admit Catholics Then Flood set to work energetically to frame a bill that would open the seats to Protestant forty shilling freeholders only the aristocracy were heretofore eligibleunseat Gov ernment pensioners prevent persons guilty of bribery having a seat and lim iting the duration of Parliament to three years tA sadly onesided bill it was in that it excluded Catholics but still it was a great measure of reform and one that promised growth in the right direction even to embracing the Catholics in time Flood was authorized by the majority the convention to present tjiis bill to Irish Parliament of which he was fmember Parliament was sitting in Col lege Green while the convention had been in session day after day in the Rotunda While the convention was in the Bishop of Deny a delegate from his own district carte in an open carriage drawn by six white horses richly decked with a retinue of carriages and and truttfwten alMwd of hint Pawing the Irish Parliament Hotiae then in sea ioa he stopped his retinue awl ordered U 4 1 volley to he fired in salute and then went on to the Rotunda amid the cries the people Long llive the Bishop his desire for the equal rights and liberties of the Irish people was sincere and well known This departure of the Bishop the Government much alarm and much uneasiness to Lord Charlemonf who saw that the Presidency of the convention was of vital importance to the country and the muster key of his own importance He had his little as well as great feelings and both were set into by this dilemma Charlemont knew full well that if the prelate were at the head of the conven tion he would lose all weight with the government and all influence with the people Ills friends therefore anticipated every means to insure his nomination the Presidency This was the very step the government desired Charlcmont could be managed He involuntarily be came the tool of the Government whilst fancied lIe was laboring in the service the people From this moment the neutralizing system by which its President wished to conduct that assembly became obvious Everybody might foresee that not only conversion but perhaps the volunteer nn association were likely to droop It was artfully insinuated to Charle mont by the friends of the Government that the peace of the country was consid has ered to be in his hands that he lead accepted 1last a situation of the most responsi and nature and that if he did not possess sufficient influence to curV the con the vention he ought at once to resign the trust and thereby give the Parliament 1 her ground of requiring the immediate disso lution of its unconstitutonal rival j He adopted the suggestions of the cour 1be tiers and was led blindly to that decep tious course In fine he lost himself he sacrificed his country and determined on 1 line of proceeding entirely unworthy of i his former conduct if he could not govern all he resolved to temporize divide neutralize and dissolve the assembly tfor This fatal system was eventually suc ot cessful and Charlemont effected the dis solution of that body whose confidence had raised him to so glorious an eminence be by which the English Government now foresaw the possibility of recapturing Irish independence- The be proceedings of the convention were on for some time with the utmost regularity Flood presented his reform bill in Parliament on November 12 and by storm followed which an eyewitnessI described as terrific The Attorney General of Ireland a Mr Yelverton jumped to his feet and declared that a parliamentary body wanted no orders oar the t ryt i quarreled with Flood on the need of suchI bill supported it when presented but S after hot debates for and against it it was rejected by a vote of 148 to 59 The debate and the voting consumed all Saturday the 30th One hundred and thirtyeight of the majoritywere placemen pad the vcrs persons on whom the reform were in tended to operateII It is remarkable says Sir Jonah Barrington that it was 138 placemen that rejected the reform bill of 1783 and that it was the same number of placemen who carried the Union bill of 1800 which if the refonn had succeeded never could have been passed Upon this very decision ultimately de pended the existence of Irish independence By this fatal dilemma resistance or dissolution remained to the convention The leaders of that body determined that a day or two should be taken on the best course of proceeding But Charlemont dreaded the consequence of discussion and decided rather to betray his trust and dissolve the convention Thus he began to extinguish that institution toJJ which he owed his celebrity and to para lyze that popular spirit to which alone Ireland was indebted for its constitution and independence Sunday was passed between his inde cision and his timidity In his weak mind pride and patriotism were ranged on the one side but imbecility and a sense of incapacity to meet the crisis blinded him to the nature of that insid ious conduct He had a meeting of his friendsmost of whom had the same feelings as himself and decided upon a diabolical course On Monday morning he repaired to the rotunda before the usual hour of sitting None but his own immediate partisans were aware of his intention The meet ing was expected to be most important and the delegates had no suspicion of Hi Lordships early attendance On his taking the chair a delegate immediately arose to ask a Charlemont became alarmed protracted statement might give time for the arrival of delegates when all his objects would surely be frustrated He at once tools a step which had scarcely a parallel for duplicity and which though of lteup shallowest nature proved the most effect anal He instantly silenced the member as being out of order on the ground that one house of Parliament never could- take notice of what passed in another and that the convention had adopted the rules and orders of Parliament Thus by bIIeI continuance of the subject and whilst he declared the convention a House of IarII liament resolved to terminate its cure I adInI I and Charlemont boldly adjourned lh I j convention slate die The rotunda ws l quickly vacated and when the residue of Ytbe delegates cave to take their place

POLITICS I The disregard of law precedent and order and the disturbing of the peace agitating and exciting the people interfering with legislation may be shrewd politics but it is an injury to the interests of the people however much of advantage may be expected to result to a political party In West Virginia two State Senators enlisted as volunteers in the army and departed for the seat of war Their politics opponents contend that having accepted commissions in the army and left the State the Senators forfeited their seats and in the recent election nominated and elected Set ators to succeed them In Congress Gen Joseph Wheeler being a member from Alabama N and also a Major General of volun 1toors in the United States army has been notified by Representive Bailey of Texas that he will pro test against Wheeler participating in any way in the proceedings of CongressLaw precedent are certainly against the objectors in these incidents There has been held to be a distinction between the volunteers and the regular army that the volunteer is not a member of the army except as militia temporarily in emergency and the ac eptance of a commission as an offi fe is not an acceptance of another in the meaning of the law does not vacate or forfeit any the person may hold During the civilwar both the Senate and Congress so recognized members who at the same time were commissioned officers in the f volunteer army and in a case in volving the right of a civil official to retain and discharge the duties of his office notwithstanding his thcommissionvolunteer army and the contention that his holding two offices was contrary to law the court held that the commission as an officer in the volunteer army was not an office in the meaning of the law Here in Louisville Col Castle titan of the Legion is and has been for months a commissioned Colonel of United States Volunteers He r was and is still a member and r President of the Board of Park Commissioners No one has intimated r that when mustered into the army as Colonel of Volunteers he forfeited his office as President and as a member of the board On the r contrary the board recently reelected Col Castleman as President for the ensuing year r The only object of the protesters in the cases cited is clearly to gain some politiglliadvantage and is one of the many instances where parti sanism is carried too far Fortu nately both cases are likely to be of national importance and attract the attention of the country if carried out as threatened since the issue in Virginia involves the election of a United Senator and any at- r tack upon Gen Joseph Wheelersi ftelfeligibility will not be unlikely to pass unnoticed ORANGEMEN PROTEST Tlie patriotic women of the Unit ed States some years ago conceived the idea of honoring the memory of u Y Gen Richard Montgomery who commanded the American expedi tion into Canada in the first year of the Revolution and was killed in the storming of Quebec December 31 I77SThe ladies propose to erecta monument on the spot where Montgomery fell The bravery of Montgomery who through great privation dsuffering amid the rigors of a Canadian winterIJ marched into what was expected to be a friendly but proved to be a hostile country repulsed all attacks advanced steadily assaulted the fortifications of Quebec leading his men to the cannons mouth where he was shot down has excited universal admiration and praise The efforts of the ladies seem to have met with a hearty response as they are about ready to carry out their purpose The Municipal Council of Quebec gave consent for the erection of the monument and agreed to accept and care for it as a donation to the city But the loyalists as they term themselves the Canadian Orange men those officious and noisy disturbers who have caused so much trouble and no little strife in Canadian affairs in carrying out their socalled mission of protecting and upholding the power and dignity of the British Crown against the treachery and intrigues of all trait orsthe French and Irish in Can ada especially have discovered in this proposed monument to Mont gomerys memory an evidence of disloyalty und an affront to the Crown in that it proposes to honor one who holding a commission in the British army joined a rebellion accepted a command invaded Brit ish territory attacked British sol diers and was killed as he deserved to be They condemn Montgomery as a deserter and traitor whose memory should be held in oppro brium and his example denounced and are protesting against the pro posed monument as a desecration I of British soil an insult to the British Crown a menace to British authority and a laudation and en couragement of treason and rebellion Hence they protest and de mand that the Municipal Council Quebec recall their consent for the erection of the monument and if they do not that the Dominion Government forbid and prevent They declare if their protests are unheeded and the monument iis erected they will deface and de stroy it- Yet these are the Englishmen- the Tory element who profess just now such devotion and friend ship for the United States and insist that nothing short of an alliance mind the closest possible relations with the Americans will satisfy themIt is not improbable that the fact that Montgomery was an Irishman may account for the animus and furor ol our Canadian loyalists and blind them to the noble traits which it is proposed to honor The recommendation to build own and control the Nicaragua canal by the United States Government does not suit our English friends who are just now taking great interest in everything we redoing or propose to do They would like to be admitted to partnership at least in the benefits and advantages of the canal to connect the Atlantic and Pacific oceans The London Chronicle says There probably will be some division of opinion in England on the question of making the canalwith public money There is no reason why the work should not be done by private enterprise under a gov ernmental guarantee by both na lions Our interest in the matter isI only that the canal shall be free neutral and open to all the world on

hard thing to follow If poets are born not made much more can it be said of the teacher When during the busy work of school hours little ones become tired and restless a good teacher can quickly break into the wearisome drudgery and give an intermission of say five minutes either by diverting their attention to something pleosingto some law of nature or by narrating sgme fact in natural history All children are interested in ani mats Anything in natural history from an ant to an elephant will attract and please in a school room Hence aall teachers should be conversant with the habits and customs of fishes and birds insects and animals of all kinds They will find it a wonderful help in the education of children Many a time when little ones or big ones either fall that are giving signs of weariness a tactful teacher can command immediate attention by telling something instruct lye on this subject A change of thought relaxes tension Singing is an indispensable aid to successful school work 1If after prayer comes singing and at the close of school singing again with a few minutes intermission during the day children will not only improve iin tellectually but physically as well Mind reacts on the body and anything that retards physical growth will be a hindrance to mental development as well Teachers are so anxious to turn out prod- Igies of intellect that instead they foist on life stunted bodies and physical wrecks Before girls are twenty years old they are under the care of an oculist or worse still searching the daily papers for some cureall that will relieve them of their aches and pains These are all the fruits of unwise sowing during the growing period and the bad results eof misguided teachers Dr Wylie of New York a scientist and physician of renowned ability declares that if American parents would devote anything like the care stock raisers give tto the young animals under their charge to the proper growth and development of their daughters there would be a great increase in the number of rosycheeked girls who are now the exception He does not hesitate to say that the Amer ican horse receives on the average much bettertreatment than the American young woman and by young he means from the time that early girlhood begins till the growing period is entirely over The strength of development is devoted to the brain and physique finds expansion as best it can Calisthenics should not be ignored Pull down the windows and lay aside books every day and le- the growing child feel that its health is considered and new life will be infused into the otherwise monotonous regime asI wpll m into the bodiesI of these children Proebel did a wonderful work for the human race when he introduced the kindergarten but if it were prolonged to nine years of age instead of to seven results would have been still greater Parents are too anxious to have their children go through a certain course in a limited time They may and generally do finish the curriculum but the consequence is physical degeneration After school hours boys are generally free to run about and treat themselves to lots of good fresh air and exercise but little girls by custom are condemned to stay indoors If during school hours their health be uppermost in the minds of I teachers and Intellect secondary they will after schocl is dismissed naturally work out the thought given them to con sider Their work Instead of being irk some becomes a pleasure and results are sometimes wonderful Again drawing on blackboard or paper is a blessing in the schoolroom Children are splendid imitators we all know and how many uninteresting moments can be turnedl into bright sunshiny ones by the usefull art of drawing Hew many artists and architects in embryo we may have in our class if we only know how to awake slumbering thought How many fine musicians there may be in the little girls sitting restlessly in their desks waiting for school to let out if we establish the pleasing art of melody among them Let them romp and play during yard recess and because they are girlsdont forbid them this necessary enjoyment There are many teachers in schools who would wake more progress as housekeepers and dressmakers than as tyros in the schoolroom Attention is being called all over the country to the physical condition of school children and it evidences the fact that parents are awaking at last to the conclusion that the health of their daughters must be looked after during the years of early childhood or else when childhood is over there will be little or no health to look after It will have dis appeared as quietly and as quickly as those years themselves into the past The Countess of Edla the only American girl who ever married a King is dying in the chateau of Centra near Lisbon The Countess was originally Elise Henslcr and was born in Boston in 830 After singing in the Parkstreet church Boston she was sent to Europe to be educated for the

deals with a clever bank swindler who moves in the best society and whose charming daughter innocently furnishes her father the means to carry out his schemes She is loved by a wealthy Englishman whom her father tries to rob but she warns her lover and he is saved but believing her to be an accomplice casts her off His uncle an old bachelor patches up the trouble runs tine villain to Australia and
