Gonne the Irish Joan of Arc and escort her from the French liner La Normandie to the Fifth Avenue Hotel New York City Miss Gonne is quite as beautiful as when she last visited America says the World Hard work has madeno inroads upon her beauty and the rough and dis r agreeable journey did not dampen her enthusiasm which seems always at the bubblingover point Though it was the committees third attempt for they had gone over the same course three times In not a too com modious vesselto sight the fair visitor they extended a welcome that was royal and hearty When they reached the at the Fifth Avenue Hotel John OConnor delivered the address of wel come Mr OConnors speech was greet ed with wildest cheering which only abated when Miss Gonne arose to an swer t Her cheeks were flushed as she saidJl thank you with all my heart for your generous words but I assure you I have done no more than any woman would do for her country if the were as independently placed I have not done half what I would like to do put it is because my hands are in a measure tied But with all my life andenergy with all the strength of my hands and heart and voice I shall work for Ireland and the Irish until our dear little country is free and a republicand that will not belong either she added with a happy L JJ11Jh and was 1trggtgwith a burst of applause Then every one hastened to press Miss S Comics hand When the reception was over and the committee had departed Miss Gonne worn and tired but a bit relieved that the ordeal was at last over and she was really here turned around and smiled brightly Do

When there are exciting times or meetings I never think- f personal wants I do not need to I am BO very healthy and it is such a bles sing How could I ever accomplish any thing if it were not for this constitution of mine And there is so much to be done and it has come so much sooner than the most sanguine of us dared hopeWhat has Why the icrisis replied Miss Gonne opening her Irish eyes Dont you know that Ireland is at present on theverge of an opportunity such as she has never lied before and may never have again What is it Why the openin- made by the Boer war In the first place the Boers have taught us a lesson and set us au example of courage and fearless ness that is worth its weight in gold It is glorious It is cHaracteristic of them They are a race who say little and d much It was not the outbreak of a mo ment this war nor was it the result of u sudden impulse Since the time of Jamesons raid Kruger and his people have been preparing In their hearts are the same aims and instincts that swell the Irish hearts the same noble longing- to be free But they had better opportunities than we They could store up arms and ammunition for this which has come to pass But we coul notdovthls Ireland has a standing army of 20000 British soldiers watching every port and harbor and railroad center There baa been no chance to smuggle 3in a gun But now the has been draws upon to

BOERLAND Immense Audience Greeted the Rev Father Sheehy Tuesday Night One of the largest and most enthusias tic audiences that ever assembled in Library Hall greeted Rev Father Eugene Sbeehy last Tuesday evening when he delivered his famous interesting and in structive illustrated lecture Ireland and Boerland under the auspices of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Long be fore 8 oclock every seat was sold and the throng was so great that it was 830 before all could be comfortably placed the sale of tickets having been stopped- At that hour County President John Murphy appeared on the stage accompanied by Hon Matt ODoherty and the patriotic priest from Limerick amid Captures of applause Stepping to the front of the stage Mr Murphy presented Hon Matt ODoherty who in a brief but eloquent address introduced Father Sheeby warmly welcoming him on his return to this city after an absence of twentyseven years ald paying a high tribute to his sterling qualities as an Irish priest and Nationalist The reverend gentleman responded in a few well chosen words and then pro- eeddscithhisrcturewLichawasdtlie most brilliant and instructive heard in this city for a long time The first pict ure thrown upon the canvas was the Stars and Stripes which created great enthu siasm and put the vast audience in the best of humor Father Sheehys remarks were indeed appropriate and stamp him more a subject of Uncle Sam than John Bull whom he scored for his course in forcing war upon the Boers The pictures and descriptions of the cities and battlefields of the three South African republics were all that they had been represented and the frequent applause showed that the sympathies of the people were with Oom Paul The scenes were many and true to life and at times one fell he was in South Africa Fully an hour and onehalf were devoted to this before the tour of Ireland began When the green flag of Erin appeared upon the canvas there was an outburst of applause that shook the building one young lady in her enthusiasm rising in her seat and cheering and others waving handkerchiefs With his tourists the lecture started from Dublin scene following scene in rapid succession till 1130 oclock Father Sheehy is a fluent talker createdgduring the evening His pictures are perhaps the best ever shown in Louisville and there were BO many excellent ones it would be superfluous to particularize The various cities and towns were well andostreets ofall being shown and many were warmly applauded Father Sheehys lecture proved a rare and pleasing treat and the Kentucky Irish American regrets its iuabilityto rrtr produce it At its close he was surround newsones and all expressed their appreciation of the Ancient Order of Hibernians for bringing him here sotdos were charmingly rendered by Miss Bee Mullarky and Mrs Katie Carr Costigan both of whom werecompelled to respon to warm encores The evening was one that will live long in the memory of those who were

representation until they become citizens in the manner and on the terms prescribed by the law of the countryThe outlanders include all na tionalities Germans Austrians French Belgians Hollanders Portuguese Italians and Americans alll having large property and businessI interests as well as the English yet none pf them but England o their governments have protested against or sought to remedy the al leged oppression and injustice or had any trouble or dispute with the Transvaal Government So on this point the Transvaal and the United States are similar and his first plea is of no avail He charges that the courts in the Transvaal are partial to the Boers and prejudiced against the out landers and cites that aBoe charged with murder was released on 1000 bond while he Hammond for nixing up in a little conspiracy was icquired to give 10000 bond Mr Hammond fails to give the details of that little conspiracy Though an outlander alienMr Hammond participated in the Jan eson con spiracy and raid into the Transvaal to sefce Johannesburg by force of arms By law he was a filibuster a common outlaw and by all law was liable to be summarily shot when captured in the act He like wise fails to state that because of his unlawful act the United States Government of which lie claimedI to be a citizen did not interfere in J his behalf farther than to insure him a fair trial in accordance withj Transvaal law the penalty being his expulsion front the Transvaal i uit fort leniency of the Jrapa l vaal courts which he denouncestI Mr Hammond would have been shot hanged or imprisoned for a long term instead of coming to the United States to traduce and mss represent theTransvaal Government and people whose hospitality he had abused whose laws he had violated whose rights he sought tt- t to destroy and whose mercy he fails to appreciateHammond like other defender- of Englands Transvaal policy iin his statements fully illustrates thatt they need only be given rope enough to hang themselves Th American people generally understand the question too well to be in fluenced by such interested an i biased authorities as Hammond England is learning something about neutrality laws She had to surrender flour seized in Delagoa bay and must not hereafter seizi food as contraband She seized a cargo of sulphur only to release iit after being notified that sulphur iis not contraband She stopped andI boarded German and Holland mail and merchant vessels and had to apologize and promise not to rip it again At her instigation the Portuguese officers arrested fifty Frenchmen passing through Lour enzo Marquese supposed recruits for the Boer army but as they had proper passports they were released and allowed to go their way on demand of the French Consul France is fortifying a port in Mad agascar and has ordered 50000 troops artillery and war vessels to proceed there England is suspici ous and intimated she would like to know why but thus far her curiosity has not been gratified Owing to neutrality Englands fleet is of dnoI- I Ilemma she can not use it against the Boers and on the high seasand1 in neutral ports it must not inter fere with the vessels of other na

undoubt edly getting far the worst of it but she can not help it if she would avoid war with other nations The CourierJournal cites as evi dence that the Transvaal is not a a republic that only those who pro fess the Protestant religion are eligible to office The right to prescribe qualifications for office iis inherent inall governments re prol Catholics and indeed all but mem bers of the established Episcopal Statesris there no religious test though the recent exclusion of Roberts from Congress because he iis a Mormon indicates that in certain cases I we apply the test Then there are those in this country even in this city who under the plea of patriotism favor amending the law and so far as they are able practice proscrip tion of Roman Catholics and the CourierJournals record on this is itsrposing as a critic of the Transvaal Republic or any other government for favoring or proscribing for re ligious belief The CourierJournal pubishes a favorable comment on the action of

PLACE aAr i 1521 Portland i GLORIOUS CAREER That of the Ohl Irish BrigadeI Surpassed by None in Modern History For a Hundred Years Carrie Off the Highest Honors of the Field Its Participation in Our Struggle For Independence at Savannah HELPED DEFEAT WILLIAM OF ORANGE The history qf armies tells of no body of troops in the world which had a longer or more uninterrupted career of glory than the Irish Brigade in the service of France For a hundred years hardly a battle of consequence was fought in Eu rope in which it did not take part often carrying off the highest honors of the field and always displaying valor and good conduct As one of the last incidents in its glor ious history was a brief participation in our struggle for independence during the siege of Savannah in 1779 American readers should find interest in the records of its fame The formal organization of the histor ical Irish Brigade was in 1698 but there were Irish troops in the French service before that From 1052 to 1G58 a regi ment of infantry and one of cavalry com posed of Irishmen had served the French King and in 1G71 Charles II permitted the Comte de Hamilton to recruit a body of 1500 men in Ireland for the French service which was known as Hamiltons regiment till the Counts death in 1676 when it was broken up and the men dis tributed among other French corps In 1690 when James II was hard pressed in Ireland he begged Louis XIV for a reenforcement of trained soldiers That monarch sent a body of 6000 men but only on condition that James should send him in return as many of his un trained Irish levies which James did sending them on the same ships that had brought the French troops over Louis organized the Irishmen into three regi ments commanded respectively by Col Justin McCarthy afterward made Lord Mountcashel Hon Daniel OBrien after ward Lord Clare and Hon Arthur Dil lon Mountcashel commanded the bri gade which was known afterward as The Old Brigade After the battle of the Boyne James II made his way as fast as he could to France but his Irish supporters main tamed the war in his behalf for a year capitulationoffamilies who chose to go were furnished transportation beyond seas with their household goods plate and jewelry Twenty thousand of the troops of James determined to go to France about 3000 accepted the offers of William and took service in the English army Of those who went to France must took service in the artpy of James which was paid by the French King and practically part of his army An invasion of England was at once projected in which the Irish troops were to take part but the total defeat of the French fleet by the com bined fleets of the English and Dutch put an end to that undertaking and the Irish troops joined the armies of the French King in Flanders Germany Spain and Italy During the campaigns of 1692 and 1693 they had abundant opportunity of taking revenge on the English and es pecially distinguished themselves at the Battle of Neewwinden where William of Orange was completely defeated by the Marshal Duke of Luxembourg Their valor was again most conspicuous at the celebrated battle of Marsaglia in Italy where Marshal Catinat commanding the French defeated the allied army under Prince Eugene Catinat had about 6000 of the Irish troops commanded by Col Wauchop Early in the action Prince Eugene succeeded in piercing the French center but was stopped by Clares regi ment which drove him back by an impetuous charge and then held their ground At a critical moment later in the dayWauchop charged with his whole force and compelled Eugene to retire leaving Catinat master of the field At Barcelona in 1697 they won the high commendation of this Marshal Duke of Vendome AraigeIn t the League of Augsburg the Irish troops took part in nearly every battle or skirmish of consequence and gained a reputation without which their organization would hardly have survived After the peace of Ryswick by which Louis XIV acknowledged William as lawful King of England it was manifestly impossible for him to allow the army of James as such to remain In his dominions but he did pot wish to lose the services of troops who had been so effi cient and therefore determined to take the greater part of them then amounting i to about 1200 men and by uniting them with the brigade of Mountcashel form a j corps into which all future refugees from t Ireland might be enlisted j There was considerable difficulty in effecting this reorganization of the Irish ji troops in a satisfactory manner owing t to the peculiar character of tile force and the unusual number of officers Almost the whole of the Roman Catholic nobility J and gentry of Ireland were to be J found among the officers and the rank and file composed of younger brothers J and con and the tenantry of the officers J bound to them by ties of kinship and j locality embraced much better material baujraa to be found in the raD of most gnropean armies of that period In the iWMfanication an extra nnmbef atOfficer I was appointed and at a time whm per I oII r1 t sonal valor couateJi for so much in war this was an advantage Still a surplu s of officers remained whom King Louis al lowed to retain their nominal rank with small pay This was not satisfactory and finally he formed them into a distin cOrps with the full pay of their nominal rank to serve whenever he might wish to employ them During the early career of the Brigade this corps of reformed officers as they were called formed a didsI tinguished on many occasions During the first half of the eighteenth century particularly there was little difficulty in keeping the ranks of the Brigad- full Having noJiopeof distinction iiu their own country rish Roman Catholics sought opportunities abroad and the organization of thei countrymen in the French army offorc ed the most attractive openings A card 1 writer has estimated that between 1691V and 1745 no less than 450000 Irishmen lied in the service of France The war of the Spanish succession which began nlmcst immediately after the formation of t le Brigade was com pleted enabled Louis to turn their services to good account In the early part of 1702 a detachment of 600 under command of Cols Arthur Dillon and Walter Bourke formed part of a garrison of 6000 holding the city of Cremona where Marshal Villierg the French com mander made his headquarters Eugene was in thevicinity with an army too small to lay regular siege to the place but it was important and he attempted to surprise it The arrison was careless about sentinel duty and by help from the inside he introduced 500 men through a sewer into the houses of some friends who opened the gates on one side of the city to his troops vhile he sent anothe- body of 5000 around to cross the Po on a bridge of boats drill attack the city from that direction Eugene took possession of the eastern half of the city and captured Marshal Villiers before the surprised gar rison could offer efficient resistance He sent troops across the city to seize the Po gate but they were J met by Major OMa bony with a part ot the Irish who held them till the rest of his command rallied to him when they took position in the fortifications aboututhe gate sent a de tachment which destroyed the bridge of boats thus preventing Eugenes reen forcements from crossing and then held their position against the assaults of that branch of their antagonists till late in the afternoon when Eugene finding that his reenforcements could not reach him and that he was too weak to hold the town withdrew to his campThe Irish troops were accorded the credit of saving the city and were commended by the King but the victory cost them dear FromI 600 their strength was cut down to 250 The loss included eightyseven officers I proportion notedA tinguished itself and covered the retreat of the French to Prince Eugene Of their conduct at Cassano the Due de Vendome wrote to Louis XIV fin terms of the

At Calcinato the Brigade was specially distinguished It took part in the lbattles of Almanza Dettingenbutr placeThe glory of theBrfgade culminated at Fontenoy in 1745 where under the im mediate eye of King Louis XV who was present with his son to witness the hat- tie the Brigade snatched victory defeat by a dashing and determine- charge on the English column which ha pierced the French center and was sweep rag everything before it The English rallied after first shock but their advance was stopped and then they began a slow retreat and the day was saved to the French King who saw how it was done The Brigade that day consisted of the DulkeleYJRothwas commanded by Lord Clare son of the hero of Ramillies and Count Arthur undyinlaurelstheir adopted country for many years in peace and war but Count Lally was destined to play a more important part in the history of the world than either of them and his career in India where he was sent not long after Fontenoy with a portion of the Irish Brigade would fur nish material for a volume During the absence of Lally with his contingent in the East the Brigade from a variety of causes began to decline The eight years of peace that followed the of Aix la C elle succeeded by seven ears of war in which the Frencharmies were rarely successful demoral ized the Irish regiments while the repeal of many of the more stringent laws against the Roman Catholics in Ireland soon after the accession of George III enabled the Irish to serve in the army of their legitimate sovereign what was one inducements to seek foreign service Count Dillon

thirty years Unknown to the other characters the Bishop is in volved in a love affair and becomes mixed up with a soninlaw of the family and a drummer and the complications that ensue are very laughable Col Meffert could not have secured a more popular play for his patrons than Davy Crockett which will be given a splendid presentation at the Temple next week Few announcements could give greater pleasure than this one It is one of the sterling melodramas of the coun try and in it Prank Mayo achieved one of his most notable successes It is a stirring melodrama of frontier life abounds in fine scenes and is on the whole a most enjoyable play The same care will be observed in staging it which has made all the Meffert productions noteworthy ones at popular prices This drama will afford opportunity for the members of the company to display their ability to an unusual degree and Davy Crockett will no doubt draw large houses at all performances It is one of the cleanest as well as the best American playon the stage For next week the Buckingham will have as its attraction Oppenheimers Miss New York Jr Company which will make its initial visit here While the company in its
