Lost Meeting: of the Irish Volunteer Convention in the Year 1783. Lord Cliarlemont Responsible For the Doublo Triumph of England. ACTIVITY OP TUB BISHOP OF DERRY "Grottan's Volunteers," we are used to callimr them, but though Grattan and Flood were the leading spirits of that grand movement that secured an independent Parliament for Ireland, it was Lord Charlemont, their Commander-in-Chiewho dissolved them suddenly in the hour of their greatest promise, on December 1, 1783. "Let us imagine," writes the historian Thomas Mooney, "the Repeal Associa-tio- n of Ireland suddenly dissolved by Daniel O'Connell or Smith O'Brien, 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 demanded and got of the British Parliad ment the right to have the laws for made in an Irish Parliament in College Green; how the establishment of that Irish Parliament was followed by the most unexampled national prosperity which the annals of any nation or any time can exhibit. Ireland's agriculture, fisheries, mines, all sources of national manufactures employment were fostered and protected by the home parliament; canals made, rivers rendered navigable, ships built. Tradesmen from England, Scotland and France came to Ireland for employment, and there was no immigration of Irish workmen seeking employment. Rut the Volunteers, who were the orig inators of that Parliament, were also its constituted guardians. They early saw 'it was one.thing to have an independent the f, Ire-lau- a volley to be fired in salute, and then went on to the Rotunda, amid the cries of the people, "Long live the Bishop!" for his desire for the equal rights and lib erties of the Irish people was sincere and well known. This departure of the Bishop caused the Government much alarm and much uneasiness to Lord Charlemont? who saw that the Presidency of the con vention was of vital importance to the country and the master kev of his own importance. He had his little, as well as his great feelings, and both were set into action by this dilemma. Charlemont knew full well that if the prelate were at the head of the convention he would lose all weight with the government and all influence with the people. His friends, therefore, anticipated every means to insure his nomination to the Presidency. This was the very step the government desired; Charlemont could be managed. He involuntarily became the tool of the Government, whilst he fancied he was laboring in the service of the people. From this moment the neutralizing sys tem by which its President wished to conduct that assembly became obvious. Everybody might foresee that not only the convenion, but perhaps the volunteer 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 considered to be in his hands; that he had ac cepted a situation of the most responsi ble nature, and that if he did not pos sess sufficient influence to curkthe con vention he ought at once to resign the trust, and thereby give the Parliament ground of requiring the immediate dissolution of its ituconstitutonal rival. He adopted the suggestions of the cour tiers, and was led blindly to that deceptions course. In fine, he lost himself; he sacrificed his country, and determined on a line of proceeding entirely unworthy of his former conduct; if he could not govern, he resolved to temporize, divide, neutralize nnd dissolve the assembly. This fatal system was eventually suc cessful, and Charlemont effected the dis solution of that body, whose confidence had raised him to so glorious an eminence, by which the English Government now foresaw the possibility of recapturing Irish independence. The proceedings of the convention were carried on for some time with the utmost regularity. Flood presented his reform bill in Parliament on November 12, and a storm followed, which an described as terrific. The Attorney General of Ireland, a Mr. Yelverton, jumped to his feet and declared that a parliamentary body wanted no orders ou ss WELCOME.

No Catholic could sit in no Catholic could even Parliament vote. So Parliamentary reform 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 reform. Grattan was not sure of the need of casting any suspicion on the integrity of the Irish Parliament or England's sincerity in granting it. His confidence in the honesty of British promises was the cause at that time of an open rupture with Henrv Flood, which was never healed. November 10 saw a most imposing demonstration, as the delegates from everv volunteer company in Ireland as sembled in the Rotunda. The state of affairs in Ireland was then seriously felt by the English Cabinet it became alarmed. Ireland now stood in a high station.

The con vention 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 ol Derry cuam-pionethe 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 eligible) unseat Govprevent persons eminent pensioners jjuilty of briber' having a seat, and lim iting the duration of Parliament to three years. "s bill it was, in that d A sadly it excluded Catholics, but still it was a great measure of reform, and one that promised growth in the riglit direction, even to embracing the Catliolics in time, Flood was authorized by the majority of the convention to present this bill to the " Irish Parliament, of which he was a member. 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 session the Bishop of Deny, a delegate from his own district, came in an open carriage drawn by six white horses, richly decked, with a retinue of carriages and cavalry, and trumpeter ahead of hint.

The jubilee will last three days, beginning on Monday nnd ending on Wednesday evening. Now that the men are so near home the interest is more intense, nnd all Louisville will turn out to do honor to her troops. Flags will fly from many houses in Louisville during the jubilee. The decorations and illuminations will be the most brilliant ever attempted here. The triumphal arch will be ready by tonight, when 180 lights will blaze on it. The arch will be topped with a huge golden eagle, and the court-housjail and all public buildings are to be profusely decorated. Many firms are arranging for electrical displays.

Joe Gunninhani Declares the Division 6 Entertained a Jolly Crowd at Its Social Tuesday Evening. The monthly social of Young Men's Division was held at the Hibernian Hall last Tuesday night nnd was an exceedingly enjoyable affair. Division C has given many of these dnnces, and by strict attention to every detail the committees having them in charge have reached a great degree of perfection in their work. This fact was fully demonstrated last Tuesday evening, for from the time that Music Director E. P. Holley gave the signal to start until the musicians were softly playing "Home, Sweet Home," the fun, pleasure and enjoyment did not cease for an instant. Seibert's First Regimental Band furnished music, which fact guarantees the excellence of that part of the programme. The hall, now especially beautiful with magnificent art paintings, generously strung about the walls, was in itself enough to delight the most critical observer of interior ornamentation. The grand piano, also a recent addition to the hall, through the efforts of the Ladies' Auxiliary, served as a means of displaying the musical ability of many of the ladies present. Swiftly the happy hours glided by, as the gay and merry couples tripped the light fantastic over the finely polished floor, and when ntlast it was time to stop everywhere was heard compliments nnd approvals for the excellent enjoyment nfforded by the Young Men's Division. The entertainment committees of Division 0, consisting of E. P. Holley, J. P. Casey and M. J. McTighe, did yeoman service in making the social n success.

Whoever started the Impression that Havana is a health resort ought to be taken out and bumped death resort would be a more plausible term. I do not doubt that this part of the island was at one time a very desirable place to live in, but the ravages of war have left their terrible impress in the neglected fields, streets filled with the nbomination of dirt and decaying matter, impoverished families, and so on ad infinitum. The Spaniards whom I have met are a courteous and elegant people. Many of them have told me that unless the United States or some equally strong government will take matters under control they will dispose of their property and leave Cuba forever.

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 dis turbers who have caused so much trouble and no little strife in Cana dian affairs, in carrying out their mission of protecting and upholding the power and dignity of the British Crown acainst the treachery and intrigues of all trait' ors the French and Irish in Can .4 aaa especially nave discovered 111 this proposed monument to Mont gomery's memory an evidence of disloyalty ' uud an affrout 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, aud 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 denouueed as Jlshvambk and treasonable, 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 po litical party. In West Virginia two State Senators enlisted as volunteers in the army and departed for the seat of war. Their political 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 Senators to succeed them. er, being a member from Alabama and also a Major General of volunteers in the United States army, has been notified by Representee Bailey, of Texas, that he will pro- In Congress Gen.

He was and is still a member aud PrPsMpnt of the Board of Park No one has inti Commissioners. when mustered into the mated that army as Colonel of Volunteers he forfeited his office as President and as a member of the board. On the contrary, the board recently re elected Col. Castleman as President for the ensuing year. The only object of the protesters in the cases cited is clearly to gain some political advantage, 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 States Senator, and any at tack upon Gen. Joseph Wheeler's eligibility will not be unlikely to pate unnoticed. 1 JUS a distinction between the volun- and are protesting against the pro posed monument as a desecration of British soil, an insult to the British Crown, a menace to British authority, and a laudation and en couragement of treason and rebell ion. Hence they protest and de maud that the Municipal Council of Quebec recall their consent for the erection of the monument, and, i they do not, that the Dominion Government forbid and prevent They declare, if their protests are unheeded and the monument is erected, they will deface and de stroy it. Yet these are the Englishmen (the Tory element) who profess, just now, such devotion and friendship for the United States and insist that nothing short of an alliance and the closest possible relations with the Americans will satisfy them. It is not improbable that the fact that Montgomery was an Irishman may account for the animus and furor of 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 iu everything we are doing 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 aud Pacific oceans. The London Chronicle says: "There probably will be some divi sion of opinion in England on the question of making the canal with public money. There is no reason why the work should not be done by private enterprise under a governmental guarantee by both nations. Our interest in the matter is only that the canal shall be free,, neutral and open to all the world on equal terms." ORANGEMEN PROTEST. The patriotic women of the Unit ed States some years ago conceived the idea of honoring the memory of 'Geo. Richard Montgomery, who commanded the American expedi tion into Canada iu the first year of the Revolution, and was killed in the torming of Quebec, December xi. 1775. The ladies propose to erect a monument on the spot where Louisville's welcome to her gal Montgomery fell.
