NO. 24k LOUISVILLE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17, All day against those awful Heights Our Hues were hurled in vain; All day our shattered ranks closed up, But to be torn again; Until the sun withdrew its light As if for very shame, And night came down upon the field To end the bloody game. The next day, a little after sunrise, every officer and man of the brigade, able again to take the field, recrossed to Fredericksburg and took up the snnie position which we had occupied previous to the advance, prepared and eager, notwithstanding their exhausted numbers and conditions, to support the Ninth Corps in the renewal of the assault of the previous day. Of the 1,200 I had led into action the day before280 only appeared on that ground that1 morning. Thick lay the slain, like sheaves of graiu, Mattered by battle-gun- 1S9S. PRICE FIVE CENTS.

Fredericksburg is located in a fertile valley on the right bank of the Rappahannock, fifty miles north of Richmond. The Rappahannock at this point is skirted by low crests of hills, which, on the northern bank, run parallel and close to the river, and on the opposite side stretch backward from the river, and plain six miles in leave n in breadth, two length and from inclosed within their line before they again approach the river. Immediately above the town the bluffs are bold and bare of trees. On this range and between these spurs, in December, 1802, the Confederate army, under Lee, 70,000 strong, was posted. The command of Gen. Longstreet occupied that portion of the range in the immediate vicinity of Fredericksburg, his right resting on Marye's Hill, on the crest of which was posted Col. Walton's Washington artillery. This rauge of hills was so completely commanded that Gen. Longstreet the day before received the report from his chief of artillery, Col. Alexander, that "we will comb it as with a fine comb. A chicken could not live on that field when we open fire." Burnside, who succeeded McClellan in command of the Army of the Potomac, crossed the Rappahannock on December 12, and prepared to give battle the next day, a delay which gave Lee time to bring Jackson's corps to his assistance. As Lee was strongly intrenched he did not wish' to oppose the crossing of the -- abnc Thf flttftr.tr mi. the Confederate Jeft could only be made on aiaryes neiguts. The dreadful engagement and the charge of the Irish brigade is thus described by Gen. Thomas Francis Meagher, the commander of the Irish brigade, in his report to Gen..Burnside: A little before 8 o'clock Saturday, the 13th inst., we received orders to fall in and prepare instantly to take the field. The brigade being in line, I addressed, separately, to each regiment, a few words, reminding it of its duty and exhorting it to acquit itself of that duty bravely and nobly to the last. Immediately after the column swept up the street toward the scene of action, headed by Col. Robert Nugent, of the Sixty-nint- h, and his veteran regiment every officer and man wearing a sprig of evergreen in his hat, in memory of the land of his birth. And in their caps tho' all around No tree nor shrub was seen They wore heaven knows from whence procured Each man, a sprig of green. Emerging from the street having nothing whatever to protect it the brigade encountered the full force and fury of the enemy's fire, and, unable to resist or reply to it, had to push on to the mill race, which may be described as the first of the hostile defenses. Crossing this mill race by means of a single bridge, diverging to the right, we had to deploy into line of battle. The Sixty-nintunder Col. Nugent, being on the right, bad to stand its ground until the rest of the brigade came up and formed. I directed Col. Nugent to throw out two companies as skirmishers on the right flank. This order was being car-lie- d out, when the other regiments of the brigade, coming up with a brisk step, and deploying in Hue of battle, drew down upon themselves a terrific fire.

Nevertheless, the Hue was beautifully and rapidly formed and boldly advanced, Col. Nugent leading on the right, Col.

Record of the Host Important of the Recent Events Culled From Exchanges. The Irish language national fund is being subscribed to vcryliberally throughout the entire country. Mr. John K. Redmond delivered his lecture on "Irish Leaders from Swift to Pnrnell" before a crowded and enthusiastic audience in Waterford. It is rumored that the Rev. James Crogan will probaby De the candidate for the Grand Mastership of Belfast in succession to the late Dr. Kane. The National Telephone Company have erected a telephone wire to Howth in connection with the Central Exchange, Dublin, which will be open for use in the beginning of the new year. At a meeting of the Limerick corporation it was decided to ask the local government board for permission to grant pensions to the members of the night watch to be disbanded this month. A meeting of Nationalists was held in Merchant's quay Saturday night, when the selection of the Independent candidates to contest the ward at the forthcoming elections was confirmed. Mr. Cox was selected in the labor interest. At a meeting of the Kingstown branch of the South Dublin Laborers' Association it was decided that the members in the West ward should support tlie candidature of Philip P. Hynes and Peter Kennedy at the forthcoming township elections. An old mau named Terence Short, residing in the townland of Segahan, County Armagh, got ill when eoing home recently and was found on the road in the snow, scarcely able to breathe. He was conveyed to his home, but expired almost immediately. Karl Cadogan, Lord Lieutenant of on November 24, visited the city of Dcrry to unveil a statue of Queen Victoria in the guild hall. Reports agree that his reception was the coldest recorded in Derry to the representative of British power in Ireland. At a special meeting of the Carrick-on-SuTown Commissioners the following resolution was passed relative to the proposed erection of laborers' dwellings in the town: "That this board realizes the great need that exists for dwelling-house- s for the working classes, but it considers that it is inopportune in these closing days of the board's existence to Ire-lau- d, ir take action." Intelligence has reached Wicklow of a sad fatality in Roundwood. It appears that on Sunday evening, December 4, a young man named Behan, employed at Keenan's Hotel, Roundwood, while taking some hay off a stable loft accidentally fell into the'manger below and broke his neck. The deceased had just returned from a funeral iu the district a few min utes Delore lie cunie uy nis uniiin.eiy end. The light railway from Kiugscourt to Keady and Armagh so long spoken of is about to be constructed. Notice of the intended application for leave to bring in a bill at the next sitting of Parliament has already been published in the local newspapers in Armagh, and it appears that both the Midland Great Western and Great Northern Railroad Companies will join together in carrying out the undertaking. The Nationalists of Wallsend had mass offered for the Manchester martyrs Allen, Larkin and O'Brien. A third mass was said for the martyrs by the Rev. Father Walsh, the pastor of the Mission. The Independent Nationalists of Tyne-sid- e annicommemorated the thirty-firs- t versary of the judicial murder at Man chester by a supper given at the City of Dublin Hotel, South Shields. James Killgullen, of Wallsend, took the chair and the memory of the martyrs was duly honored. A beautifully illuminated address from the parishioners of Rush to the Very Rev. Father O'Hea on the occasion of his ap pointment as parish priest of Rush, in which he was a curate more, than twenty years ago, is on view iu the window of Messrs. West & Son, College Green. The reverend gentleman has always been deeply attached to Rush, and he resigned his position as parish priest of Wicklow before his appointment as pastor of Rush, where he has been welcomed most en thusiastically. It was presented to Father O'Hea on December 4. The United Irish League is spreading rapidly in Ireland. New branches are being established every day. About sixty branches are in working order, the ma jority, of course, in the West of Ireland. Tories and land owners who have vast areas of land upon which bullocks, not persons, are living, have become alarmed, and in Cork Unionists and Tories have meetings to denounce William O'Brien and the new edition of the old Land League. Wednesday afternoon, December 7, a fire, which proved serious, broke out in the wine and spirit stores of Messrs. James Murphy, O'Connor & Co., Dean street, Cork. The flames spread rapidly and fiercely and the premises were completely gutted, The timber left ef Mr. to Magahy, organ builder, which the rear of the destroyed premises, was also included in the conflagration. Both stores, which contained property to a very .valuable extent, were but partly insured. The Countess of Meath has goue abroad and intends to stay in sunny cUhmg until the snrinc comes round, as .&eM unable to winter at home owing to Mr fragile health, while away Lady Maatk. however, manages to keen in towcit with the numerous benevolent en- tarprMM identified with her name and that of Lord Meath.

The Brabaxon scheme hsa been put into operation at the Rich - mond asylum, where the inmates show wonderful aptness in mastering the various handicrafts taught them. The Guardians of the South Dublin Uuion have also consented to the introduction of the scheme, but the Guardians of the North Dublin Union have the matter still under consideration. For some unknown reason a report has lately been current in Belfast stating that Sir Thomas Lipton's America challenge cup yacht, the Shamrock, is to be fitted with n new kind of sail made of paper and probably manufactured by Messrs. Marcus Ward & Co. This, however, is not the case. Whatever the sails are, paper will form no part of their construction. It is fully believed in Belfast that the Shamrock is to be constructed by Messrs. Harland & Wolff, but so far the plans are not even completed. When the yacht will be commenced no one knows. On December 5 John E. Barry, Wexford, son of John E. Barry, President of the Dublin Chamber of Commerce, was the recipient of a very handsome presentation from the officials of the Bishops-watdistillery, of which Mr. Barry is part owner, as a token of their estecn and respect on the occasion of his forthcoming marriage with Mrs. Loftus Steele, widow of the late Major General Steele, and daughter of the late Col. George Pemberton Pigott, Slevoy Castle, County Wexford. The presentation took the form of a magnificently and delicately-wrougsolid silver bowl.

On Monday evening Rev. RadclifTe P. Roe, who has been for a number of years senior Protestant curate in Tuam was presented with a splendid illuminated address and a purse of sovereigns by his numerous friends and admirers at Guy's Hotel, Tuam. The Rev. Mr. Roe. who is going to Killorglin, County Kerry, during his stay in Tuam had endeared himself to all classes of the community. The occasion was remarkable for the unanimity of Catholics .and Protestants and members of all sections of politics in bearing testimony to the worth of the recipient of the address, and the high tribute paid by the various speakers to his worth ns a Christian minister and a kindly Irish gentleman. At the Blackwater Petty Sessions. N. Townsend, chairman, presented Peter Hughes, of Mullinary, with the bronze medal of the Royal Humane Society for his gallant conduct in saving the life of Sarah McGlone, of Mullinary, from drowning in a deep draw well. It ap pears that Mrs. Sarah McGlone, who is tftCWHti of Capt "Edward McGlone, ac cidentally fell into a very deep draw well and Hughes' attention being attracted by the noise and shouts, he immediately prepared himself to go down. Having procured a rope he attached it to his body, and with the assistance of some young lads he was immediately lowered down head foremost. He succeeded iu rescuing the woman and brought her safely to the top, for which he was applauded by the spectators. er ht e, HIBERNIANS.

The treaty of peace with Spain was signed last night at Paris, says the Sunday world. The American Commissioners will sail for home on Saturday next, bringing the document with them. No treaty iu the past fifty years has wrought such a change as this will make in the political geography of the globe, or has been fraught with ultimate consequence so important to the race and to the cause of free goyerment. The treaty alianates from Spain and puts in the possession or under the protection of the United States more than 2,000 islands, with nearly 200,000 square miles of territory and 10,000,000 of in habitants. It makes changes in the map of the world as it has stood for hundreds of years. It will, if carried to its logical length, effect changes in the fundamental principles and the traditional system of our government such as those who founded and those who have developed it into the the greatest power on earth never dreamed of. It is likewise the first treaty in the history of the world, so far as we are aware, which not only does not exact one cent for indemnity to the victors who spent f 200,000,000 in the war but which pledges $20,000,000 to the vanquished for territory which they could not have retained and possession of which they could not retained and possession of which they are not asked to guarantee. Equally remarkable is the treaty for the fact that it contains, as the result of a war undertaken in behalf of freedom awl independence for an oppressed colony of Spain, a title to the sovereignty, the lands and the people of the Philippine group, with their 8,000,000 inhabitants, on the other side of the globe. This ends a war for freedom with a peace of subjugation. We set out to free the Cubans. We end by taking Spain's place as the master of the Filipinos. In sending this exraordinary treaty to the Senate it is to be presumed that President McKinley will make good the omission iu his message and give to the people who must pay the bills and assume the burdens of these new ventures bU reasons for "expansion" and his plan, if he has any, for the disposition or government, of the new possessions. rw There are numerous inquiries as to what the committees having in charge the St. Patrick's day and silver jubilee celebrations are doing. The Kentucky Irish American will keep its readers advised as to the progress made. The annual reception and hop of Division 3 of Baltimore was held in Wagner's Hall. Nearly 400 couple participated in the affair, which was a pleasing success. The hall was tastefully decorated with American and Irish flags. Division 4 held a largely attended meeting Wednesday night, at which two were initiated and eight new applications received. President John Hennessy can now boast of being the chief executive of the banner division of this section of the country. The A. O. H. Division 0 and the Ladies' Auxiliary, of Dayton, Ohio, have instituted the beautiful custom of holding an annual public service in memory of their departed members. The initial service was held in Hibernian Hall and it was most impressive in character. A large delegation of Hibernians will pay Rev. Father Cunningham the com pliment of attending divine service at and Holy Cross church, Thirty-secon- d Broadway, at 10:30 tomorrow morning. The, reverend gentleman is quite a favorite with the members of this organiz ation. John J. Rogers, the County President, installed President James Noonan and Vice President John A. Dunn, of Division 30, of Worcester, Mass. Mr. Noonan was raised to the Presidency to fill the vacancy made by the resignation of Ulick Clifford and Mr. Dunn was elected to fill the place of Mr. Noonan as Vice President. The Hibernians of Davenport, la., seem to be progressive brothers. A course of lectures of much merit is to be delivered under the patronage of the local divisions, when Judge M. J. Wade, of Iowa City, will speak on "The 'Law of the Iand." This lecturelias Tceeived lHgh eemtnend- ation wherever delivered. 3t k for the student or "the lawyer, people, not-thJudge Wade was one of the best orators in the West. The second discourse will be delivered in January by Hon. M. V. Can nor, of Chicago. His subject will be "National Exposition and the Anglo Saxon Alliance." The other lectures will be by leading orators of the West not yet decided upon.
