On the City HaM.'steps were Mayor Van Wyck and the Officials of the city government, surronnded by as many people as could secure a foothold. At the head of thu,regiment was Col. Duffy, his short, rotund figure sitting snugly on his warhorse, his staff officers grouped nb6utbim. &Then came the men marching in columns of four. They wore the fajiiiliar light slouch hats. Their gray blankets were slung across their shoulders. The tin cuds jingled at their sidestas they swept along steadily, bringing their guns to salute, but making no pausep Their faces were tanned by the fierce Southern sun. Their forms were lean and sinewy, like those of athletes in training. The cheering mingled with the smashing, vigorous tunes flayed by the bands, for nearly every organization had a band. In these lulls were Jthe shouts of men who recognized frierj&s in the regiment. All traffic was stopped on Broadway. Those in the cable cars bound downtown had the best view of the parade. Every window was ablaze. Flags were flying, but the darkness robbed them of effectiveness. Yet Khere was never a procession that was more picturesque. Electric lights glinted on the rifles. From City Hall totHouston street the greatest noise was made by the thousands who were m the windows of the buildings.

The pious work was all but completed. The patriot's remains had been conveyed across a continent and two oceans to his "Isle of Destiny." For ten days and nights they had been "waked at home." The grave had been dug in which they were to lie on the morrow; but ere they to sleep left the "Rebel of Forty-eight- " in Irish clay the exiles who accompanied him on his homeward journej-- determined to pay the homage of their devotion to the principles which he inculcated in life and death by making a reverential pilgrimage to the grave of the great revolutionary apostle, whose faith he preached, and who, like him, "died for LOUISVILLE: SATURDAY.

He trusts to subordinates, and knows how to choose men whom he must trust There are 420 Lipton shops in Great Britain, all just alike; sixty in London alone, the others everywhere. Every new Lipton shop is opened by a brass-banconcert. In every one the employes wear the same uniform. Every one is decorated in the same rather showy style. The prices in all are uni form and low. All are lighted by electricity. This is the unvarying rule. In many a small town this requires the expense of a special lighting plant; but-i- t is worth the money. In such a case the Lipton shop shines liken jewel beside its dingy neighbors. It is all the better advertising. It wonder at first and a. disis a nine-daytinction always. Sir Thomas Lipton's fortune is called J60.000.000. It is only nineteen years 3ince he stood behind a counter waiting on customers. Last spring Lipton formed a joint stock company to take his London business The capitalization was fixed at $12,500, 000, of which only 5,000,000 were offered for sale. This stock was subscribed for twenty-fiv- e times over. The same sum had previously been offered by Hooley and refused. Lipton is his own pro moter. Lipton may have been relieved of some of his labors and responsibilities by the change in his business. He is able to en joy such leisure as comes to him.

He owns a beautiful country place at Osidge a palace our volatile and exclamatory British cousins call it and here every summer he entertains his own employes, brought thither on special Lipton trains from every part of the kingdom. When Sir Thomas Lipton challenged in the name of the Royal Ulster Yacht Club for the Atnerical's cup there were in Britain certain proud aristocrats who sneered at him as not quite n gentleman, don't you know. The "first gentleman of Europe" came to the defense of its first merchant. The Prince of Wales and the Duke of York showed Lipton most friendly attentions.

Mr. Michael Cavanagh is employed in the War Department at Washington. In fact he has been in the same department more than thirty years.

From his temporary grave by the whores of the far Pacific he had been disinterred by loving compatriots, who had faith in the cause for which he risked his life and lost nearly all that could make life dean and who also believed in the resurrection to national life of the land he loved so well.

As we emerged from the King's Bridge station, on our journey westward, our eyes wandered with delight over a landscape embracing the most distinguishing characteristics of. Irish scenery, and no less rich in historical associations than in natural beauties. Behind us, underneath its dim canopy of smoke-cloudlay the ancient city with its monuments of glory and of shame; its plundered fanes and martyr's graves; its barracks and its prisons; its magnificence and squalor; its desecrated forum where the moneychangers fill the places of Grattati. Curran and their illustrious compatriots; its castle, for centuries the abode of d treamurder and chery, at present n sink of depravity and fount of corruption, always the detested symbol of foreign domination; its thousands of subsidized slaves and its myriads of conspiring rebels(?). There also, gleaming resplendent in the sunlight, stretched the broad expanse of Dublin's "Ray" with stern Ben Hedar standiug like a giant sentinel on guard at its portal. At its upper extremity, across the city, sloped gently to the water's edge Erin's Marathon the imperishable monument of her greatest king the battle-fiel- d of Clontarf. On the left, looking proudly down on city, bay and battle-fieltheir purple d sides and summits cutting d sharply against their of ethcral Dlue, stood "The hills of beautiful Wicklow, the hunted outlaw's rest." The Liffy followed close by on her right; a few hundred yards below Kilniaihham it rippled beneath the bridge that spans the famous "Ath Cro," i. e. "Hloody Ford," so called from the slaughter inflicted there on the English of the Pale by the valiant King Art MacMorrotigh in the beginning of the fifteenth century. Speeding into the open country, in a few minutes we observed the Round Tower of Clondalkiu looming gray and solemn above the pretty little village. Its sight sent the memory wandering into ages, when our pagan the forefathers thronged beneath its shadow to worship the God of Nature after their own benighted fashion. The smiling fields of emerald green, which perhaps owe their perpetual verdure not more to the climate than to the blood of the brave who died in their defence, the thatched and white-walle- d cottages; theirlittle gardens behind, and in front the clumps of elder and whitee curling thorn; the blue from the chimneys; children, the shouting gleefully as they wafch the passing train, their mothers beckoning to them from the half-ope- n doors; the potato-digger- s in their white flannel waistcoats, leaning momentarily on their spades; the flocks of linnets in the bushes; the exhilirating balmy air all wrought on the feelings' of the long- absent exiles, and brought from the heart to the lips the spontauous exclatna- -' Hon: 'This is Ireland!

New York has witnessed but two great popular demonstrations m connection with the present war. One waathc fare well to theSixtv-uinth- , nine mouths ago, and the other was the welcome home to the same organization. Preparations for the welcome had been making for days. The regiment was ex pectcd to arrive at 10 o'clock in the morn ing. At that hour the citizens were ready for them. At 10 o'clock a telegram was received at the Mayor's office from Col. Duffy at Syracuse, stating that the train had been delayed slightly. At the Franklin-stree- t ferry station of the West Shore railroad a notice was posted that the regiment would arrive at 1 o'clock. The great crowd at the station received this infor mation with a groan, but did not leave, The waiting organizations, after a con sultation, decided that it was useless to go home and return again, and simply broke ranks. The crowds in and around City Hall Park did not preceptibly de crease at any time. They simply under went a series of changes in personnel.

"They did well what they had to do, and were ready to fight at the drop of the hat," was the expression heard on every side. 1 he regiment landed on Manhattan Island at 0:45. It was dusk when the procession started and almost dark when the head of it reached the Irish World office in Park place. The crowd was tremendous. The tens of thousands that are traveling toward the Brooklyn bridge and the ferries at that hour waited to see the show and to lift their voices. It was a gorgeous and brilliant specta cle,- more brilliant than if it had taken place in daylight, for as soon as it was known that the Sixty-nint- h must march after nightfall fireworks were secured Roman caudles, rockets and red fire. The Irish World had suspended its beautiful Irish flag, flanked on either side by American flags, over the street, and at this point the street was choked with humanity when the head of the procession passed. As the splendid regiment passed under the green banner the crowd cheered with deafening roars time and again. Every company as it swung past received a hearty greeting, nnd the faces of the sturdy soldiers beamed with smiles of appreciation. Father Daly, the Iwloved chaplain, trudged along with his "boys," and, as the crowd caught tight of him he was cheered heartily. As the mounted police turned into Mail street the cheers of the crowd could be heard down Broadway. There were ever so many bands, and they played with tremendous vigor. The stirring strains of "Wearing of the Green," "Killarney" and all the tunes dear to Irish hearts mingled with patriotic American airs. City Hall Park was really a blaze of glory when the procession marched across it. Red fire was kept burning at short intervals, the heavens were brilliaut with rockets, aeriel bombs and cannon added the splendor of noise. The veterans of the Sixty-nintmen who carried tattered, faded battle-flag- s of the civil war shreds of silk more precious than diamonds marched along, followed by the Irish Brigade, the Shields-CorcoraPost and Reno Post, G.

There appeared in the windows and on the steps of the fashionable Fifth avenue homes men in evening dress, who clapped their hands and joined in the cheering, and women in beautiful gowns. with gorgeous opera cloaks thrown over their shoulders, who waved handkerchiefs. It was expected that Archbishop Cor- rigan would review the troops at St. Patrick's Cathedral, but owing to the late ness of the hour he could not be present, and Father M, J. Lavelle stood in his stead with uncovered head on the steps of the edifice and watched the boys go street the procession by. At Fifty-firmarched east to Madison avenue, and down that thoroughfare to Thirty-fourt- h street, and cast again to Park avenue, and then along Fourth avenue to the Sixty-nint- h Regiment Armory, An enormous crowd hod packed itself around the armory, and there was a rush for the doors by friends and relatives as soon as the men had entered. Chief of Police Devery was at the door with a squad, and as soon as he saw that the place was filled and that there was danger in admitting any more, he gave the order to clear the street in front of the armory. This only served to complicate matters, and the policemen had finally to draw their clubs and by main force push the mas3 back into Third avenue.

He had become a stowaway on board because he had no money to pay for his passage; had been dragged from his con cealment after the boat was out at sea and with kicks and curses set to earn his passage by shoveling coal. If, as seems certain, Sir Thomas Lipton comes to visit the United States this year it will be under conditions so different that their bare recital beggars the old tales of wealth and power won by white magic and the wands of the fairies. The stowaway boy will return as a knight of Great Britain; as a member of one of the most aristocratic yacht clubs in the realm, charged with the purpose of winning the America's cup; as the friend and associate of the Prince of Wales and the Duke of York; as the merchant magnate whose ships sail every sea, and whose laborers till and toil in every quarter of the globe to add to his golden gams.

Very young, the boy worked in Glas gow, where his parents lived, as a messenger at sixty-on- e cents a week, educating himself in the night school. He ran away to this country, crossing in the steerage, and worked two years on South Carolina plantations. It was not long after the war; there was no money down there. He was seventeen years old when he gave it up and walked to Charleston and took a stowaway's dusty berth for New York. . In that city he earned enough to buy a steerage passage to Glasgow, where he arrived at eighteen, a man in stature and a man who had seen far countries and new ways and had kept his eyes open.

The members have aroused from the lethargy and routine of the past few months, got a hustle on themselves, attend the meetings, take more interest in the affairs, bringing back the laggards and adding All this many new members. proves that a little adverse criticism is sometimes good for the soul. The recent action of the society in amending its laws made it the target of some of the newspapers, which applied epithets and heaped denunciation upon prominent members and officers and the society. This seenis to have awakened the very members it was intended to irray against the society by the charge that it had been torn from its moorings and was to be controlled and run in a way directly the opposite of its purpose and object, in the interest of individuals and partisans. This naturally attracted attention and caused inquiry by those opposed to any such move, and who, were it true, would most certainly and promptly have abandoned it. Their investigation proves that the cry of "politics" comes from those who are prompted more by partisan and selfish motives and fear of results detrimental to them than any love for the or their society, and by Irish-AmericIrish-America- llnfrorl 1. iMi.niur ' rf rwin r,r 11 .iii. timrn timtll tlloll t tl. - ill i it liirTiiiidii lilt1 I wnoseames-iiKeiiieHasiiHJtr- : States into war whenever England needs help; but will not such au al liance prevetit the United States from helping herself?

Irish-America- ANQLO-AHERICA- N ALLIANCE. The dispatches of last Tuesday contained the information that the alliance" was no idle dream as far as England was Of course not. No concerned. thinking Irishman nor any well posted and patriotic American ever had such an idea. Ever since the United States of America has shown the world that she was capable of holding her own England has wanted an alliunce. Pray God it may never come. "Anglo-American the aid she could in au effort to (lis nipt the Union. England was thoroughbred. The United States was a nation of nondescripts; many of these nondescripts were "Irish." Hut the United States forged to the front and became a power, aud then, and not until then, did Eng laud seek an alliance. The United States cau go it alone. The telegrams say England wants an alliance in order to support the United States in its war with Spain. The war with Spain is over. The United States did not need England in that row. , ,TM 1 ne seconu point- - is to secure American aid in keeping an "open door" in the far East. America can take care of herself in the far East, and there is no reason why she should want to aid England. The "open door" as far as America Honor of Miss Mary Heraty. An elegant supper was served and danctug indulged in until a late hour. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Lee Master, Misses Leila Anderson, Katie Thompson, Kate Evans, Annie Picker, Miun'e Carroll, Annie Sweeney, Minnie Anderson; Messrs. John Wilson, Edward Carroll, Thomas Duffy, William Ficker. Martin Leahy, Thomas Cockran and William Hynes. During the evening Thomas Duffy sang several pleasing songs. The dispatches relate that the reasons given for England's desire for an alliance are: First, to support the United States in the war with Spain; and another is to secure an "open door'.' in the far East; the third point is to induce the United States to give England and the British colonies a preferential tariff for their products; the fourth, but by no means least, point in the proposed alliance is to get the United States to guarantee the integrity of British possesions on the American continent. In reference to this last point the London informant says: "This is the ultimate object of Great Britain in alpromoting an liance, as she realizes that the greatest danger lies in the eventual dissolution of her power in Canada. An alliance would prevent this and assure the peaceful perpetuation of the British empire, as no other power is strong enough to attack England's sovereignty." Exactly. Euglaud wants to entangle z. the United States into au alliance that will1 force the United Anglo-America- n is concerned for Americans, and at this stage of the game Americans are lookiug out for themselves. Americans could gain nothing by maintaining au "open door" policy for England. The third point in these tele grams is to give England and the British colonies "a preferential tariff for their products." Huh! What about American products? Is the United States Government to enter an alliance with the stepmother country in order to aid the land of cheap labor and prison products to compete with her workmen? Not just yet. Last, but by no means least, comes the Canadian question. England wants an alliance with the United States to prevent the United States from accepting the several Canadian provinces whenever they get ready to join the Union, or perhaps to force the United States to make war upon her northern neighbors in case they should seek to form an independent govern One of the most delightful dances given this year was that which occurred Friday evening at the residence of Mr. and Mrs, Thomas Clavin, 033 Magnolia avenue At midnight the guests were seated to a bounteous supper, after which dancing was indulged in till a late hour, all hav ing enjoyed themselves.

The most pleasing event of late years in Louisville typographical circles was the banquet tendered by the members of the printers' union nnd the allied trades to President Samuel B. Donnelly at the St. Nicholas Hotel Monday evening. The newly furnished dining room of this popular hotel presented a handsome appearance when the half hundred sat down, to honor their guest. Were it not for the fact that the greater number of the printers and allied trades were employed on the morning papers there would not have been room for those who desired to be present. The tables were arranged in the shape until 10:30 of a horse shoe, and from o'clock course followed course, each succeeding one surpassing its predecessor. Charles K. Shepherd presided, with Presidents Donnelly nnd Binford of the local union, on his right, while President V. B. Smith, of the Pressmen's union, and International Organizer William M. Hlggins occupied seats on his left. The circle was filled with printers and members of the allied trades. After the passing of cigars Toastmaster Shepherd called on President Donnelly to respond to the International Union, which he did in a most happy style, informing those present that its relations with the United Typothetne were with few exceptions very pleasant, and the outlook for increased membership and prosperity was very bright. During his remarks he paid a handsome compliment to the local union and gave assurance that the Executive Council would aid in all movements to further the iuterests of trades unionism. He was frequently applauded. President Binford followed, his talk being on local conditions and held the close attention of his auditors, his sugMr. gestions carrying great weight. Binford had hoped to have a chance to discuss trusts, for which he had made special preparations, but as the list of toasts had not been arranged, he will be given an.oppoitumty in the near future. President Smith "responded to the ' needs of the printing pressmen, aud evening, his remarks made the hit of the causing great enthusiasm and much favorable comment. Our space is too limited to give more than the names of the others who made impromptu talks, many of which were sparkling and witty as well as sensible. Organizer Higgius told of his first official trip, and was followed in order by Messrs. Looney, of the Stereotypes' Union, Wat Bowman, Villiam Kirk, A. A. Hoffman, James J. Martin, E. L. Cronk, Nelson Petrie, Walter Youug, Charles Burton, O'Hara.Chaudet, Asa, Abbitt, Wools, Fowler and Ellis. Toastmaster Shepherd's introductory remarks were of a happV nature in each case, and he can officiate at all futnre banquets of the printers. To Messrs. Burton and Abbett much is due, as they contributed greatly to the success of the banquet. Before leaving President Donnelly was presented with a large boquet of Kentucky natural flowers, which, when uncovered, proved to be a sample of the finest tobacco grown in the State, The printers passed a vote of thanks to Messrs. Fleischnier and Gamier for their excellent service, and thus closed one evening of real enjoyment. Much regret was felt that Secretary John Bramwood did not accompany President Donnelly. 11 five-minu- JOHN F.

I have preached un der every contingency, and I have again and again declareH 'my intention to abandon the cause of repeal if a single drop of human blood were shed by those who advocated the measure. I made the same principle the basis for the move ment in favor of Catholic emancipation; aud it was by a rigid adherence to that principle that I conducted the movement to a glorious and triumphant issue. "It is my boast that Catholic emanci pation and every achievement of my po-- , litical life was obtained without violence and bloodshed; and is it fair, I ask yon, that vou should be called upon at this hour of the day to interrupt a man who has laid that down as the basis of his political conduct, and who at no period of his existence was ever known to deviate from that maxim? Is it right that men of honesty and intelligence should be called upon to brand now as a participator in conspiracy the man who has been preaching peace, law and order during his wholp life, and has invariably deprecated and denounced the idea that the objects of his political life were to be attained by an appeal to violent means? I oclong to a Christion persuasion with whose members it is a principle of doctrinal belief that no advantage to church or state no, not even Heaven can be sought to be attained at the expense of any crime whatsoever that no sin is to be justified or palliated by any amount of advantage, however enormous, that may possibly be obtained by its commission. "I now come to the evils of the Union, and I would look to every honest man to exert himself for its .'repeal. Would it not cure the odious evils of absenteeism? 'It was calculated fby an able man that $15,000,000 a year pass out of this country. The railway. commissioners reduce it to $30,000,000. Take the reduced amount, and I ask did ever a country suffer such an odious drain of Jtf0,000,000 of absentee money $30,000, 000 raised every year in this country not to fructify it, not to employ the people of the country, not to take care of the sick and poor or desolate, but $30,000,000 are lauds, sent transplanted to foreign there, but giving no return, leaving pov erty to those who enriched them. Take $30,000,000 for the last ten years look, now, at $300,000,000 drawn from this unhappy country take it for the next six years. Can you, in conscience, encourage this? There is a catit that agitation prevents the influx of capital. What is the meaning of that? We do not want English capital; leave us our own $30,000,000 and we shall have capital in abundance. We do not want that left- handed benevolence which would drain the country with one hand and let it in niggardly with the other. "There is another item which exhausts the resources of this conntry, and that to the omount precisely of $10,000,000 annually. In the last year it was as low as 2$,500,000, but whether the one or the other it is drawn out of this country never to return. There is, again, the woods and forests that department re ceives $370,000 a year out of Ireland in quit rents, etc. How was that expended for the last ten years? Between the Thames tunnel and to ornament Trafal gar Square. We want an additional bridge in Dublin. Why have we not the $370,000 for that purpose? Have we not -- I I. I.i II ns goon ii. rigui us lt.i !. suouui tuc ux uim ii pended on Trafalgar Square? If wc had the Parliament in College Green would that $370,000 be sent to adorn a square in Loudon? "There are other e,yils attending this continued drain on the country. I re- -, member the work of Mr. Young, a po d litical economist, who journeyed in in '78, who in speaking of the increase of population accounted for it by the never failing bellyful pf potatoes they hud all a bellyful of potatoes and to that he attributed their increase. But is this the case now? Has not the coun try sensibly declined is not even one meal of potatoes a treat and a treasure; according to the evidence of the commissioners of poor law inquiry the people are now in rags. ' Was this my lan guage? No, gentlcnfcn, I appeal to yourselves. Are they not reduced to misery and wretchedness; frittered away by pe riodical famine, and there were six or eight since the Union; there was relief from England while provisions were in quantities transported to this country; provisions were in the country while the people were perishing with hunger, but these provisions were exported from the couutry.

The Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiuers will meet at Beck's Hall tonight. Able speakers will address those present on the benefits to be derived from closer affiliation. The Stone Cutters' Union met Monday night, aud among other things passed resolutions deploring the action of those unions which withdrew from the Central Labor Union. The Brewers' Union had a largely attended and interesting meeting last Sunday afternoon. Resolutions were adopted pledging the body to stand by the Central Labor Union. There is a big row now going on in the Kenton and Campbell County Trade and Labor Assembly. It is charged that the Republican bosses have control of that body, The American Federation of Musicians held its monthly meeting at Beck's Hall on the 3d inst. A motion was made to withdraw from Central Labor Union and immediately voted down. The American Federation of Musicians can not afford to place itself in the light of forming a dual organization. President James McGill goes this week to Manchester, Ky., to organize the house painters and decorators and under the Brotherhood of Painters and Decorators of America. Seven unions are said to have withdrawn their delegates aud support from the Central Labor Union. Twenty-eigh- t deleorganizations, with eighty-seve- n gates, remain. Thomas Drewry, who is a member of the Federal Labor Union and a delegate from that body to the Central Labor Union, has announced himself a candidate for the Legislature, subject to the action of the Democratic party. He will withdraw as a delegate to the Central Labor Union at the next meeting of the Federal Labor Union. paper-hangers PLEASANT RECEPTION.

In order to prevent any disturbance or any colli sion with the armed forces of the Gov ernment O'Connell prompty dispatched messengers in all directions to tell the people to remain at home and make no attempt to assemble. On October 14 warrants were issued for the arrest of Daniel O'Connell and others "for devising to raise and create discontent and disaffec tion among the Queen's subjects." Indignant protests against the action of the Government came from all quarters, On November 8 "true bills" were found by' the grand jury, and after various delays the traversers were put upon their trial at the Court of Queen's Bench, Dublin, on January 10, 1844. There were eleven counts in the long indictments. The charges varied against each traverser, Utterances at public meetings formed the principal evidence upon which the Government relied. It is needless to say that there was not single Catholic on the jury. O'Connell was escorted to the court by large crowds and almost in regal stute, accom pauicd by the Lord Mayor aud the Cath olic Aldermen in their robes. The defense of the accused was conducted by the ablest lawyer ever engaged in any cause cither in Ireland or England. Besides O'Connell and his sou, who appeared for themselves, there were fourteen of the most eminent counsel of the time, among whom were the famous Richard Lalor Shiel aud Thomas O'Hagan, who years afterward became Lord Chancellor of Ireland the first Catholic who was per mitted to hold that office since the per fidious violation of the treaty of Lim erick. The closing speech for the defense was made by O'Connell, and was one of his most masterly efforts. Among other things, he said; "I do not stand here my own client. have clients of infinitely more impor tance. My clients in this case arc the Irish people my client is Ireland and I stand here the advocate of the rights aud liberties and constitutional privileges of the people. My only anxiety is lest their sacred cause their rights to independent legislation should be in the slightest degree tarnished or impeded by auytlung in winch I have been the instrument. I am conscious of the integ rity of my purpose; I am conscious of the purity of my motives; 1 am con scious of the inestimable value of the object I had in view rthe repeal of the union. I own to you I can not endure that union; it was founded upon the grossest injustice; it was based upon the grossest insult the intolerance of Irish prosperity. "From the day I first entered the arena of politics until the present hour I have never neglected au opportunity of impressing upon the minds of my the fact .that I was an apostle of that political sect who held that liberty was only to be attained under such agencies as were strictly consistent with the law and the constitutionthat freedom was to be attained not by the effusion of human blood, but by the constitutional combination of good und wise men by perseverance in the course of tranquility and good order, and by aa utter abhorrence of violence and bloodshed. It is my proudest boast that throughout a long and eventful life I have faithfully devoted myself to the promulgation of that principle, and, without vanity, I can assert that I am the first public mat; who ever proclaimed it. Other politicians have said, 'Win your liberties by peaceable means if you can;' but there always was r deruiere pensee in this admonition, and they always had in contemplation an appeal to physical force in case other weans should prove abortive; but I am 1 fellow-countrym- I per cent, of the agricultural popula tion were in abject poverty. "Where then is the advantage of the Union, which thus increased poverty, bringing pestilence and involving our poor in misery and filth? Why should wc not adopt any plan by which we would escape from these horrors? To be sure, the poor law commissioners go more into detail. Allow me to read some of their evidence : One family had but one meal for the space of three days ; another subsided on a quart of meal a day; another lived on little boiled cabbages without anything to mix with them.' I will not harass your feelings by reading any more. Are 2,300,000 of your fellow countrymen to live in a state of positive destitution nnd nothing be done tor tlieui?

And are we to be haunted down who are the friends of the poor; are we who wish to have industry re warded; are we, I ask it In every prin ciple ot sense and justice, are we to be prosecuted and persecuted for seeking the means for relieving this distress? We have the means of relief in our power; we live in the most fertile country in the world; no country is in possession of such harbors; the earliest historical mention of us which is made bv Tacitus ad mits that our harbors are the best, and that consequently were not crowded The country is intersected with whole estuaries ships of 500 tons burden ride into the heart of the country safe from every wind that blows. "No country possesses such advantages for commerce. The machinery of the world might be turned by the water power of Ireland. Take the map and dissect it and you will find that a good harbor is not more remote from any spot in Ireland than thirty miles. Why is not the country prosperous?

I leave the case to you. I deny that there is anything in it to stain me with conspiracy. I reject with contempt the appellation. I have acted in the open day, in the presence of the Government, in presence of the Magis trates; nothing was secret, private or con cealed; there was nothing but what was exposed to the universal world.

A fire was discovered to have broken out last Saturday morning at Kilrush gas works. It was confined to a shed known aa the Governor's House. The night man, Shanahan, who helped to stop the fire from spreading, was burned about the face and hands. The estimated damage is 2o or 50, but it is covered by insurance. At Dundalk Petty Sessions two Con stables of the Royal Irish Constabulary named McGuinuess and Friel, stationed at.

Nelson brought him to Sir Patrick Dun's Hospital, where he died n few minutes after admission. The foreman of the public house stated that the man got no drink there. He came into the house, lit his pipe and fell in a faint. The man has not been identified. The parish priests of the Diocese of Meath assembled at St. Mary's College, Mullingar, and selected the following names to be forwarded to Rome for election to the vacant Bishopric of Meath in succession to the late Most Rev.

Canon Brosnau was celebrated in the parish church at Cahirciveen. The The ceremonies were very impressive. chapel was appropriately decorated for the occasion by the nuns of the Presentation Convent. The number of priests that Assisted in the solemn offerings tej tilled to the great respect in which the late canon was held by them. At an inquest held at Birr on the body of Michael Hickey, aged forty, who had been employed by the road authorities of the district, it appeared from the evidence that the deceased was with some of his nsighbors pursuing a cat that had be trayed symptoms of rabies when he dropped dead. The animal had found its waj into his home where his twelve chil dren were, and its condition caused some alarm. Hickey had been a steady, in dustrious man. J. P. lyoughrey, who has been en -- ployed at the railway station at Killorg lin for the past two years in the clerical department, took his departure for him last week, where he has been appointed to a very responsible position. His many mends in the local ity regret exceedingly that they are losing him. But it is a source of gratifi cation to them to know that his em ployers have recognized his ability and worth. Early on Tuesday Sergeant Horan, while on duty in Tenth street, Belfast, observed two women raising a grate in the street. He immediately arrested one of the females. On making a search in the sewer he discovered a monstrous chalice and a large quantity of broken no'd. The woman arrested turned out to be Mary Waters, who was charged on Saturday last with breaking into the Catholic chapei at whitchouse, Belfast, and subsequently allowed out on bail on her own recognizance. At a meeting of the people of Michaels town held in the Town Hall last week to select local candidates for the Rural Dis trict Council, Chairman Skinner said they were aware that he was a candidate for the Michaelstown Electoral District of the.Rural Council. He had one special object in seeking election, and that was to pilot a scheme to procure with as much dispatch as possible a site oh the sq tare of Michaelstown for the national memorial to John Mandeville and to Lonergan, Shinnick and Casey, who were shot down in their streets. Mr, Skinner's candidature was unanimously adopted. Mr. William Bray, a spirit grocer of Dublin, met with an accident when going down stairs which terminated fatally. He was descending from his bedroom to the shop, when he slipped and fell down the stairs, fracturing some of the ribs on his left side. The shop assistant, James Nicholson, and a woman named Mary Reilly, who happened to be standing at the counter, rushed to his assistance, carried him up stairs and placed him in his bed. Dr. O'Sullivan was brought.to his bedside and bandaged Mr. Bray's .broken ribs. As the evening advanced Mr.. Bray grew worse, and when Dr. O'Sullivan called again he found the patient dead. At Emyvale Petty Sessions Catherine McCollon and Peter McCollon, mother and son, were prosecuted for illicit dis tillation. The evidence showed that the police of Emyvale proceeded to the town- .land of Killycarreii, where they found a still with the worm gone.

Feb. 10. The'pat three weeks have been exciting ones in political circles here, and the Democratic primary last Tuesday ended the suspense for many and resulted in another victory for the division of the party known aa the "machine." The race that excited the most interest was the Representative race. Hon. P. J. Sherry, one of Fayette county's most brilliant young lawyers and a prominent went down in defeat, his opponent, William Klair, a young bartender, defeating him by 521 votes. Major Henry Duncan was nominated for Mayor, Moses Kaufman for Treasurer, J. E. Cnssidy for City Clerk, George C. Morgan for City Attorney, John W. Masncr for City Jailer, Matt. Fouchee for Assessor; for City Surveyor P. P. O'Neill. Several Councilmen and Aldermen were also nominated. The sermon of the Rev. J. P. Barry, rector of St. Paul's clfurch of this city, created a sensation last Sunday. In preaching a sermon on "Politics" he. closed by urging the' members of his congregation that had been appointed election officers to give every candidate a fair count and not count out some candidates not belonging to the "machine," as it was rumored would be done. Barry Council, Y. M. I., has given several entertainments during the past few weeks and will close the season with a grand mask ball Monday night. Their papular entertainments will be resumed after Easter with renewed vigor after a rest of seven weeks. Mr. Paul' Weitzel, the n young druggist who came from Frankfort and located here, about January 1. is doing a nice business and building up a good trade. Mr. Weitzel is very popular among the young ladies of Lexington, who have been captivated by his gentlemanly manner and handsome looks. The friends of the movement to organ ize a branch of the Ancient Order pf Hibernians in Lexington have not vet given up hope of having a division before spring and are still working hard to attain that end.
