T. regiment, was of the Sixty-nint- h a most successful and enjoyable affair, memsays the Irish World. Seventy-fiv- e bers were present and a large number of guests. Mr. Pierce Kent presided and opened the post prandial exercises by a few remarks in Gaelic, in which he expressed the pleasure of the members of the society in having the President among them again, and said that although this, like all the society's reunions, was informal, there were a few set toasts. The first (in mOit daring and unpardonable disregard of the etiquette established by the New York Chamber of Commerce), was the "President of the United States," which was suitably responded to by Mr. Denis A. Spellessy. "Our Guest" was proposed by the Hon. Joseph F. Daly, of the Supreme Court, who paid a high tribute to Major McCrystal for his personal qualities, his work in the Gaelic Society and his record in the Sixty-nint- h regiment. Major McCrystal, on rising to respond, received an ovation, being cheered again and again. He spoke briefly in Gaelic, thanking the society for the very warm reception they had given him, and afterward spoke in English, as follows: My Dear Friends of the Gaelic Society: If ever I needed auy evidence or held any doubt as to my status among the workers in the Gaelic movement, it has been set at rest. The warmth and heartiness with which you have welcomed my return to your ranks would more than please and delight due who knew you less than I do. What then can you conceive my feelings to be who know your goodness, earnestness and loving-nes- s so well and who has worked so long in your ranks? I confess to you now that I am complttely overpowered by this ovation and the many beautiful expressions of undying friendship and love conveyed by the speakers who have just preceded me. The other evening when stir. prise you in youfcwork the heartiness and sincerity of your welcome robbed me of the power of speech; tmd tonight, though I have had some time to. rest, I confess to you and plead that I am left in a like condition. For this manifestation, for this evidence of your esteem, I know not words wherewith to express the gratitude I feel and my appreciation of your wholesouled good will. But, my dear Gaelic friends, I can scarcely take it as a tribute to my personal worth alone (though, as I said to you on Wednesday evening last, I have returned to render to you an exact accounting of my stewardship), but rather because I am one who represents the high principle by which every is and should be moved unswerving loyalty to the land of our adoption, as well as to the land from whence we or our fathers came. I take it that in honoring me here tonight as your President, the Gaelic Society seeks to do honor in like manner to my gallant regiment, comrades of the Sixty-nint- h who nine months ago broke every tie that bound them to those whom they held dear, and lightly passed to the front to prove to the world that no more loyal defenders of the stars and stirpes could be found than among the children of "Graine Mhaol." And though it was not the good fortune of our regiment to exhibit on the field of blood and strife the courage and clogged loyalty which had marked it in the civil war, there were few who doubted its ability to do so. When this strife broke out, as one of those who had been serving in the State Guard, I felt myself as an American, as a soldier and as one who never was and, I pray God, never will be recreant to his race, its hopes and traditions, in honor bound to respond to the call for men to defend the honor of my adopted land; and so, too, my regiment responded, without regard to State lines, without evasions or qualifications of any character; and I say to you, my friends, you who have known me so long and so well, I never felt prouder of my Americanism, of my Irish blood and of my faithful service of eighteen years than on the 24th day of May last, when we passed through New York on our way to the front, not knowing who might return. And there were and are reasons why we should be proud. The call to arms lighted the martial fires in miny an Irish heart; the response of New York's Irish Sixty-nint- h met an echo in the Ninth Massachusetts, the Seventh Illinois, the Sheridan Guard, of Manchester, N. H.; the Wolfe Tone Guard, of St. Louis, as well as of Detroit; the First California, the Emmet Guard, of Washington, and many other companies whose identity is obscured or lost in various State numerical designations. It was claimed at the outset of this war that those of our citizens of Irish lineage could not be relied upon, and once more, according to bogies and the ghosts the Anglo-Saxo- n myth, it behooved the of the Scotch-Iris- h Govftrnineut to look well to it that it had not nurtured viper within its botoui.

A course of Gilchrist lectures was given in Wexford durinjj this month under the auspices of the Wexford Lecture Association. The Lord Chancellor hus appointed Thomas J. Bvrne, Rossmakea, Dundalk, to the Commission of the Peace for the County of I.outli. At the meeting of the Dungarvan Urban Coutlcil, James Hayes presiding, a resolution in favor of home rule was passed. Thomas Power was selected to represent Dungarvan on the County Council. A large meeting was held in the chapel yard, Ennistymon, to select proper can didates to represent the district in the County Council. J. J. Daly, Solicitor. and Mr. O'Dwyer were put forward as candidates. Herbert Robertson, of Huntingdon Castle, Clonegal, County Carlow, has been sworn in. as High Sheriff, and Robert Sharp, Kilgteaney, llagnalstown, H. B. Fitzgerald, Dublin, as has been appointed Returning Officer. St. George Caulfield, of Donamon Castle, Roscommon, was sworn in as High Sheriff of the County of Roscommon before W. St. Lawrence Bur e, Commissioner of Oaths, Roscommon. Mr. Caulfield has appointed P. Burrowes Shiel Under Sheriff. The funeral of Mr. William J. Sheridan, solicitor, Castlebar, took place on last Saturday. Deep sympathy with his young wife and his respected father, Mr. Joseph Sheridan, Spencer Park, Castlebar, has been expressed by people of all classes in the County Mayo. Thomas II. Cleeve, pf Limerick, has been appointed High Sheriff of the city by his Excellency the Lord Lieutenant. Mr. Cleeve was, with A. W. Shaw and W. Stokes, nominated for the position by the new Urban Borough Council. Mr. Shaw, as already stated, was offered and accepted the Shrievalty of the county. John Perry Smith, a dentist, was charged at the Belfast Recorder's Court with defrauding the Belfast & Northern Counties Railway Company of GO, he having represented to the company that he was the husband of a woman named Elizabeth Assworth, who received injuries at Larne in July last. The jury disagreed. The case will come on again at the spring assizes. William Calderwood was charged at the Belfast Custody Court with attempting to commit suicide at his residence in Boundary street, Belfast, on Tuesday night. Caldcrwood's brother and other persons prevented him from cutting his throat with a razor, and subsequently he made an effort t'o swallow pins and bootlaces.

Monday's fair was exclusively devoted to the sale of pigs, of which a large number were sold at high prices. Though large the number in market the supply fell short of the demand, and before 10 o'clock in the morning not a single animal remained unsold. The cattle fair was poorly supplied with horned stock, but there was a large supply of sheep, some of them being of a superior class. Inferior classes were not iu much demand. The report of the Limerick Free Library for the year 1898 showed that the number of borrowers of books and readers of papers and periodicals have very largely increased as compared with the figures on the report for the previous year. Owing to the increased accommodation required, the committee find the present house altogether unsuitable, and they express confidence that the new Borough Council will, in the interests of education, take steps to se cure for the committee premises better suited for the uses of a public liabrary than the house at present occupied. At Newbliss Petty Sessions Mr. Neiley, Inspector of Factories and Workshops, prosecuted John Crawford, Drumbain, scutchmill owner, for offenses against the act. The case for the prosecution was that when the inspector visited the defendant's mill on January 11 he found a water wheel not sufficiently fenced, so as to be dangerous. In the second case it was alleged that the defendant had in his employment in the mill a young lad named Samuel Richie under sixteen years of age for more than seven days without having obtained a certificate from the sutjjeon of the district. The inspector said he only asked for a nominal fine. Dr. Thompson, Omagh, the defeated candidate in the recent contest for the Parliamentary representation of North Fermanagh, has intimated through his .solicitor, King Houston, Omagh, that he it about to serve a writ for libel on Chas.

Many a visitor to Mrs. Hunter's beautifully situated hotel at Woodenbridge, County Wicklow, will be sorry to hear of the death of her son, Mr. John Hunter, who was so well known for his genial manner and pleasant ways. Although a confirmed invalid for many years and unable to move about unless in his bath chair, he had a happy disposition that never .succumbed to pain or trouble. A charming convensationalTst and a deep reader, Mr. Hunter made many a guest feel regret when the day for "good-by- " came round. Days spent in the exquisite valley in County Wicklow are associated with the homely comforts of this hotel, and call up memories of the kindly voice that now is hushed. On Wednesday morning in the church attached to the Convent of St. Louis, Monaghau, three young ladies were solemnly professed as nuns. The church was beautifully decorated for the occasion. The Most Rev. Dr. Owens, Lord Bishop of Cloghcr, assisted by the Rev. P. McDonnell and the Rev. P. J. Lynch, celebrated mass, after which the solemn vows were made. The music of the mass was beautifully sung by the convent choir. The three young ladies who were professed were Miss Elizabeth Smith, eldest daughter of Thomas Smith, of Monaghau; Maggie McLorinan, third daughter of Charles McLorinan, Belfast, and Lizzie Led with, third daughter of Matthew Ledwith, late of Empor, County Westmeath. At a large meeting of the Bailieboro' Board of Guardians a letter was read from the Local Government Board stating that to avoid complications which would arise they had decided to issue a sealed order constituting the electoral divisions of Crossbane, Kilinkere, MuUagh and Ter-nio- n into one dispensary district. Mul-lag- h division has been in Moynalty district; Crossbane was a branch district of was included in the Virginia, Bailieboro' district and Tcrmon was a small district under Dr. Clark, was passed A . resolution objecting to the establishment of the proposed district, as the guardians considered that the interests of the poor would be better attended to under the existing state of affairs. Recently the entire premises known as the Soldiers' Home and the Sailors' Rest, on the beach, Queenstown, as well as the boot and shoe establishment of Messrs. Tyler, who occupy a portion of the build ings on the ground floor, were completely destroyed by fire. There was, however, no loss of life, though there were twenty- persons sleeping in seven or twenty-eigh- t the Sailors' Hom! at the time. One soldier, while endeavoring to escape from the premises, jumped or fell into the yard and received a very serious wouud on the head, and it is feared his legs are broken. He was conveyed to the military hospital. The spacious premises were built about eight" or lime yuan; uga by Thomas-O'Reilland a considerable sum was expended in their erection. There were also extensive premises in the rear. At a large and influential meeting of the Dublin Wexfordmen's Association P, S. Lawlor presided and dwelt on the many benefits to be derived from the lo cal government act, expressing a hope that the voice of labor would now be effectively heard throughout the country, He also emphasized the necessity of lib crating the prisoners incarcerated in Brit ish dungeons. T. Foley said a peace crusade had been started, and the first step that should be taken in connection with such a movement was to unbar the prison doors and liberate the Irish political pris oners convicted by packed juries on the evidence of informers. He referred to the treatment of Fitzharris, which he characterized as the most barbarous that had ever disgraced the history of man kind. Mr. Fitzpatrick said the tyrannical treatment of the Irish political prisoners was recognized far and wide, and the demand for their release would be made wherever the Celt had found a home. Mr. Lawlor proposed the following resolution, which was seconded by Mr. O'Neill and carried unanimously: "That we, the representatives of the exiled Wexfordmen of Dublin beg to congratulate the people of our county on their excellent choice for their Council Boards of kind and sterling Nationalists, and especially the people of the town of Wexford for securing as their representa tives sucn trieu ana wormy liaels as Alderman Cosgrove and Councillor E.

Snowdon, 4th Pool The aggregate happiness of society, which is best promoted by the practice of a virtuous policy, is or ought to be the end of all government. My politics are plain and simple. I think that every nation has a right to establish that form of government under which it conceives it may live most happy, provided it infracts no right or is not dangerous to others, and that no governments ought to interfere with the internal concents of another except for the security of what is due to them selves. Republicanism is not the phantom of a deluded imagination. On the contrary, laws under no form of government are better supported, liberty and property secured or happiness more effectually dispensed to mankind. Liberty when it begins to take root is a plant of rapid growth. Great Britain thought she was only to hold up the rod and all would be hushed. I think the Parliament of Great Britain has no more right to put their hands into my pocket without my consent than I have to put my hands into yours. Our cause is noble. It is the cause of mankind, and the danger to it is to be apprehended from ourselves. Shall we slumber and sleep while we should be punishing those miscreants who have brought these troubles upon us? I think our political system can be compared to the mechanism of a clock, and we should derive a lesson from it, for it answers no good purpose to keep the smaller wheels in order if the greater one, which is the support and prime mover of the whole, is neglected. As there can be no harm in a pious wish for the good of one's country, I shall offer it as mine that each State would not only choose but absolutely compel their ablest men to attend Congress, and that they would instruct them to go into a thorough investigation of the causes that have produced so many disagreeable effects. The foundation of a great empire is laid, and I please myself with the persuasion that Providence will not leave its work imperfect. The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered, staked on the experiment intrusted to the hands of the American people. The very idea of the power and the right of the people to establish government presupposes the duty of every individual to obey the established government.

JEFFERSON STS. jj TEMPLE THEATER. The Temple Theater next week gives the public an entirely new play, "Two Nights in Rome." It deals with one Gerald Massey, who is the younger son of an English baronet. He loves Evelyn Aubrey, out writes to her telling her of his poverty, and asks her to become his wife. Shortly after sending her the let ter he is taken sick, and is nursed back to life by a Corsican girl, who in order to win him intercepts the letter from Evelyn accepting him. lne corsican manies him, believing her former husband to be dead. He traces her by means of the perfume of violets, her favorite flower, and warns her by letter of the vendetta he has sworn which causes her to depart, leaving evidence of having committed suicide. Gerald and Evelyn then marry, His older brother then dies, which makes him Sir Gerald Clinton, an heir to a large estate. Years go by and by accident the Corsican woman learns of .Gerald's wealth and position, and to be revenged destroys a painting, letting suspicion fall on Gerald's wife. Her Corsican husband keeps his oath of vendetta, and she is rendered powerless. S ! II Never make a remark at the cxpeute of the other it is meauneaa. Of two men equally well affected to the true interests of their country, of equal abilities and equally disposed to lend their support, it is the part of prudence to give preference to him against whom the least clamor can be excited. In all important matters deliberate maturely, but execute promptly and vigorously. It should be the policy of united America to administer to the wants of other nations without being engaged in their quarrels, and it is not in the ability of the proudest and most polite people on earth to prevent us from becoming a great, a respectable and a commercial nation if we shall continue united and faithful to ourselves. I hope some day we shall become a storehouse and granary for the world. There is nothing which will so soon produce a speedy and honorable peace as a state of preparation for war, and we must do this or lay our account to patch up an inglorious peace after all the toil, blood and treasure we have spent. Separated as we are by a world of water from other nations, if we are wise we shall surely avoid being drawn into the labyrinth of their politics and involved in their destructive wars. It is among nations as with individuals the party taking advantage of the distresses of another will lose infinitely more, iu the opinion of mankind and in consequent events, than it will gain by the stroke of the moment. Candor is not a more conspicuous trait in the character of governments than it is of individuals. The dispensation of justice belongs to the civil magistrate, and let it ever be our pride and our glory to leave the sacred deposits there inviolate. The life of the husbandman is of all others the most delightful. It is honorable, it is amusing and, with judicious management, it is profitable. For the sake of humanity it is devoutly to be wished that the manly employment of agriculture and the humanizing benefit of commerce will supersede the waste of war and the rage of conquest. Commerce and industry are the best mints of a nation. However unimportant America may be considered at present, and however Britain may despise her trade, there will assuredly come a day when this country will have some weight in the scale of empires. Be cool but determined. Do not fire at a distance, but wait for orders from your' officers. The virtue, spirit and union in the provinces leave them nothing to fear but the want of ammunitio'h. Three things prompt meu to regular discharge of their duty in time of action natural bravery, hope of reward and fear of punishment. When we assumed the soldier we did not lay aside the citizen. We shall most surely rejoice with you in that happy hour when the establishment of American liberty upon the moat firm and aolid foundations shall enable us to return to HENRY "wi C.

Two of the pictures which deserve special mention are the one in which "Christ is Taken From the Cross" and the other in which "Christ Brings the Dead Lazarus Back to Life." In this picture a person in the audience is sure to imagine that he or she can hear the noise the tombstone makes iu striking the floor as it rolls off of the grave. Father Logan is to be congratulated in his enterprise in securing the pictures for his church. The performance surely merits a repetition at some future time. The cinematograph 0t paradise!
