Perhaps a hundred ladies and gentle
men gathered at the European hotel last
night to celebrate. In unison with hun
dreds of other gatherings In all lands
w here Irishmen are found, the centen
nial of Daniel O'Oonuell. The gather
ing was not exclusively composed of
Irishmen, for wc noticed among the
guests of tho Irish Literary society many
gentlemen of American birth, though
they showed symptoms of geuuine Irish
enthusiasm. The gentlemen of the
above-named society, at the last hour,
undertook the task of getting up a proper
and suitable celebration in Memphis of
the centennial of a patriot, orator and
statesman who has lett a deeper mark
behind him iu Irish annals than nuy
other of hpr historic characters. At nine
o'clock, his honor Mayor Loague took
the cha'r and immediately the guests
sat down to au elegant supper, prepared
hy the active and skillful host of the
"Europein." The good things were
discuseed an hour or two, and after
the removal of the cloth, tho
chairman gracefully opeDci the
eloquent part of tho proceedings in a
short but pointed speceli, in which ho
said that they met as American citizens
adopted citizens, who represented Irish
history, enthusiasm and lovo of liberty
to do honor to O'Conueil, the greatest
tribune of the people that ever lived.
The following programme was submit
ted to the chairman of the committee
that had the duty of carrying out the
celebration imposed upon them. And,
by the way, we may in justice remark
that the committee. John Mulroy, Thos.
Fisher and Janes Flaherty, carried out
their instructions and fulfilled their du
ties in a most admirable manner. The
programme is as follows:
"Hie United H tales" G. A. Hansou.
"O'Oonuell, i ne Consistent Advocate of Con
stitutional Liberty" J. M. Keating.
"Tue ftale of Tennessee, the Prolific Jlotlier
of Great Soldiers anil State -men "-J. Harvey
liclauU, the Land of Patriotism. Oratorv
and hods" T. W. Brown.
"The Memory of tl'e Dead." embracing all
men who have labored, fought and died for
liberty In all lauds John U.Adams.
Tho JLadles, uou Hiets tuem Judge
Republican Institutions, the Bnrent Guar-
anfe of Popular. Liberty "Hon. II. Casey
The latenesH of the hour at which the
meeting broke up prevents anything
likoa full report of theelcqueut speeches
which were made by the oratois selected
by the committee to do honor to the
toasts. Mr. Hanson had a prolific theme,
aud he said truly that he could not do
justice to it, because h-i Lad not all the
excellencies or all the poets and orators
that overlived, t it would take therom-
uned genius 01 all to do anything like
justice to so vast, so varied, so magnifi
cent a theme. Mr. J. al. Keating, who
spoke to the toast of the evening, spoke
an hcur upon a subject with which he
was personally acquainted, and many of
his friends tried to persuado him that ho
made a splendid and most masterly effort.
The long and laborious and exciting iife
of O'Connell furnished a theme full of
inspiration, and the orator seemed full
of it. Judge Brown, as usual, was
eloquent and felicitous'. Ee spoke about
Ireland's past and present, dwelling par
ticularly upon the peculiar genius of her
oratora and the miraculous vitali'.v of
her national life and principles. ''The
memory of the dead," embracing all
men who have fought, labored and died
for liberty in all lauds, was discussed
by Colonel John D. Adams, briefly and
feelingly. "The State of Tennessee"
celled forth an eulogiura from Captain
Mathes iu his happy vein. The latter
two gentlemen are meml-ers of the Irish
Literary society, and in their oratory
evinced the value cf their training in
that remarkable school of eloquence.
Judge Walker had the happy task as-
igneu mm 01 replying to tiio tcast of
'Tho ladies," a tuljtct he is calculated
to do full justice to, as ho is evidently a
ladies' man. He kept the audience in
pleasurable state of tittlation during
the two hours that he spoke. Colonel
Young, our congressman, had the ardu
ous duty assigned him of replying to
the toast, "Republican institutions,"
which woutul up the festivities of the
night. The celebration, in every respect,
was worthy of the great man whose
memory it was designed to honor, and
also worthy of the enthusiasm and pa
triotism of our Irif-h fellow-citizens. It
will form a worthv contribution from
Tennesfes to the brilliant record of the
circle of celebrations held in America,
Great Britain, Ausiir.lia, New Zealand,
and.pvcn in Jrdia, and wherever there
are Irif'ti people aud where are they
:tv rue gtmiemeii who participated
u the c-'-Iet 'ration f:ol that they have
done a meritorious tliiw. Let the mem-
ry of O Connell be hcM sacred nmoEi:
that of tiie great patriots and statesmen
cf the earth.
Dublin, August 6. The O'Connell
centenary celebration waSoantinue-d to
day, The ceiemoniee began with a
ruLd p cession through the streets.
This evening several banquets and balls
wiu laue piscp.
The numerous organizations, civic and
military, which were to take part in the
procession to-day began to assemble at
an early houi this morning in St. Sie-
phen-3 green and vicinity. There was
much delay, owing to the vast num
bers, iu f raiirg the line, and the tuo-
ut-siou did not t:egin to move until loug
after ten o'clock, the appointed hour.
The line of marcn was aiound Merrion

1 stree's, S!evUB lane, along the quays,
thiough lrel street, Dorset street and
Connor's Row, to th site f the nation
al inonumeLt to O'Connell, on Sack
vi'le street. The route was five miles
in length, and the prccetsiau extended
over the entire distance. It is estimated
that there were nearly forty thousand
people in line. The houses and aide
walks along the route were crowded
with dene masses of upectators. There
was great cheering as the procession
marched past O'Conuell's house and
the city htsll, where the Meat lib
erator delivered his first ora
tion against the union. Tho
niemlicrs of the Fenian amnesty asso
ciation marched with a banner at their
head hung with chbins; thtir llage were
draped with crape Dd other emblems of
mourning were displayed- Their ap
pearance attrscted general ttteLtion,
but the demonstration caused no disor
der during the progress of the proces
siou. Dr. Isaac Butt rik! other home
rule memleis of psrlifcinect matched
with the association. InSuckviJle tlreet,
I as the divisions of the procession, with
I bands playing, arrived and took up their
TKMitlons, the scene was grand aud stir
I ring. Long before all had arrived the j
' commemoration ceremonies began at
I the eite of the monument. Lord O'Ha
gan, who was to have delivered the ora-
Hon of the day, was net able to be pres- !
ent, and the lord mayor of Dublin came
forward tn read it to the assembled mul
titude. The moment he appeared there
was great uproar and confusion. Ths
Fenian amnesty men had moved up to
the front cf the platform, and as the
loid mayor began to speak they shook
lha chains attached to their banner in
his face, ard drowned his voice with
shouts of "No wbiggery," and loud and
long-continued.; cries for Dr. Butt.
Tho mayor made a second attempt
to read the fpeech, but finding it impos
sible to make it himself he withdrew,
and proceeded to his carriage under the
protection of tho police. Dr. Butt, iu
reepouse to repeated calls, came forward
and made a epeecb, reviewing the ca
reer of O'Connoll.and thanking tho peo
ple for their praiseworthy conduct dur
ing the day. He was most enthusiasti
cally cheered. Speeches were also made
hyMr. O'Connor Power, member of par
liament for Mayo county, andMr. Suili
vau, member for Louth. The proceed
ings were then brought to a close, anri
the vast assemblage peaceably dispersed.
With the exception of a scene in front of
the platform, there was no serious dis
turbance throughout the day. The ser
mon delivered by Dr. Croke yesterday
is much admired'for its eloquence, but is
sharply criticised by the liberal Catho
lics for drawing anew ultramontanism,
which virtually excludes the liberals
from the church. The Dublin Mail says
that nine parti of the discourse was de
voted to the church and one to O'Con
nell. Midnight. A grand banquet, at
which the lord mayor presided, was
given at the Exhibition palace thiseven
ing. The proceedings were marked by
no incident of interest until one of the
regular toasts, viz: "Thejlegislative in
dependence of Ireland," was reached.
This the mayor announced, aud called
on Charles Gavan Duffy to respond.
Mr. Duffy on rising was greeted with
tremendous uproar and snouts. For
twenty minutes there was a scene of
wild disorder. The mayor made re
peated attempts to gain a hearing, but in
vain, aud vacated the chair. Dr. Butt
then rose and began to speak, when the
gas was extinguished and the company
dispersed in great confusion before the
regular toasts were finished.
Mr. O'Connor Power, in his speech in
Sackvilla street, afcar the departure of
the mayor, referring to Lord O'Hagan,
declared that it was an insult to the
memory cf O'Connell to invite a pension
er of the government to the platform on
such au occasion. O'Connell should be
honored as a nationalist and emancipa
tor of Ire'and.
London, August 6. There wa3 a large

New York, August G. The O'Con

A special dispatcn from Dublin says
that secret meetings of the amnesty as

interest of national and Internationa!
ideas, to be represented iu the demon
stration to-morrow, and strong efforts
have been made to induce the lord
mayor's party to substitute Hon, Isaac
Butt in place of Lord O'Hagan as the
orator who shall pronounce the eulogi
ura upon O'Connell. A home-rulo
character would thus have been given
to tho affair, but tho efforts failed, and
threats aro made of interruption to Lord
O'Hagan if he speaks.
The large hall at Cooper institute was
crowded this evening, on occasion of
the O'Connell centennial meeting. Gen
eral M'Maeou presided, and among the
list of vice-presidents were Richard S.

eral Benham, William Lloyd Garrison,
Fathers Lynden, Healey, Flatly, Grif

and services of Daniel O'Connell by
Wendell Phillips, which is pronounced
the master effort of his life.

park, where speeches, music, etc., were
indulged iu. Perhap3 the finest speech
of tho day wai delivered by Robert
Bauks, a colored barber of this city, who
gave his icrsoiiol recollections of O'Con

the occasion was the fraternization of
the colored and Irish citizens, which was
hearty and complete.
The O'Connell cpntennlal was ob

which was very largely attended.

Uni street Unrncy.
New York, August 6. The Evening
Font says, in its financial article, that
the Wall street market is to-day clouded
with rumors of a disquieting character.
These all seem to emanate from the
slock exchange, and to be accompanied
by speculative operations. They suy
that three or four bankers are in trouble
and one or two stock firms. Taking the
wty the stories aie circulated and all the
surroundings, the inference is inevitable
that they aro simply the worfc of persons
anxioti3 to depress prices. Until the
absolute announcement of suspensions,'
it will be safe to discredit the stories
which may be set alloat that there are
to be more failures.

Quebec, August 6. Intelligence re
ceived from St. Malachi, county of Dor
chester, under dato of July 30th, says:
"The greatest tornado ever known in
this part of the country passed over here
yesterday. Hail-stones larger than eggs
fell, covering the ground for five miles
square to a depth of four inches. The
federal government asks help for the
euOerew, as they are left destitute."
RAINS IN COLORADO.
Tourists who visit Colorado tho pre
sent summer have been surprised to
find, instead of the dry, clear atmos
phere which they expected at this sea
son of the year, as frequent rains as oc
cur in any of the Atlantic States. In
deed, the Denver JSreivs says that at this
time more rain is falling in Colorado
than on the eastern seaboard, and it dis
cusses the questions whether the cli
mate of the Territory is not changing,
aud whether the money invested in irri
gating canals will not eventually prove
a dead loss to the investors. Some of
tho citizens aro firm in the belief that
the climate is really undergoing a
chango, and predict that before long it
will rain in Colorado as much and as
often as it does in the States.
THE BOOMING MISSISSIPPI.
Tiie Mississippi river rose seven inches
at Hickman, Kentucky, Tuesday night,
but it was anticipated it would be about
on a stand last night. The whole of
Tuesday wai occupied in saving the
cattle around which the Hoods bad gath
ered, threatening their livea. Many
were drowned before assistance could be
rendered. Cornfields, by the thousand,
are inundated. Crops of corn, which
promieed a plentiful yield, hsive ben
swept down. The losses sustained aro
inestimable. The rise of the river at
that point is unprecedented.
New YoTk Bulletin.
The rainfall, it is worth noting, seems
to have been most piotracted and per
sistent along tho line of the Ohio, but
the entire area within its infiuence has
embraced the upper Mississippi, lower
Missouri, aud lower Ohio valleys. With
in this territory the temperature for the
last two months has been abnormally
low. .During the month ot July, far in
stance, the average temperature was
hut a little ovor ighty degrees: the
maximum, ninety, was reached only
once, at two o'clock on the seventeenth,
while the minimum was low in the sev
enties. Anotuer nuiewortny ract is,
that tho prevailing winds have been
southerly. These winds have brought
the vapor from tho gulf, which has been
condensed by our low temperature, and
thus produced these frequent rains. Tho
phenomena, as recordeu by the signal
service observer, which have attended
these rains goes far to support this the
ory. The relative humidity of the at-nii-sphere
has been low, denoting dry
ness, and the rains, as we have said, ap
pear to have come with wind almost al
ways from the south. Nino times when
it has rained so far, tho wind has blown
from the southeast, three times from the
south, and eleven times from the south
west. During these twenty-three rains,
6 84 inches of water have fallen. A com
parison between this rainfall and that
of former years will show what an un
usually wet season we have had during
this month. In 1S72, throughout thesame
area of country, the fill was 7.01 inches;
1573, 3 94 inches; 1S74, 3 42 iuches; and
1S74 tup to Saturday night), 9 42 inches.
These figures show at a glance that tho
rainfall of this season has no precedent
in the experiences of late years.
A WEEK'S RAINFALL IN ENGLAND.
Liverpool Mercury, July 22d.
The registrar-general states that at
the Royal observatory, Greenwich, no
less than 3 27 inches of rain were meas
ured last week, of which 2.39 inches fell
during the forty-four hours ending at
seven o'clock Friday morning. So large
jin amount of rain has not fallen in Lou
don during any week since the last sev
en days of September, 1871, when 3.31
Inches were measured. In other E :g-
lish towns the rain measured during the
week ranged from 0.32 and 0 65 of an
inch in Bradford and Leeds, to 3 04
inches in Bristol, which was the nearest
approach to the rainfall in London.
SOMETHING MORE ABOUT ST. SWITHIN.
Manchester Guardian, July 21st.J
St. Swithin has not been propitious, so
we hear on every hand. It is, in fact,
asserted that tne niteentn was the-wet-est
day on record at most of the stations.
We are, therefore, it seems.to have fortv
days wet weather, and need not make
any excursion or picnic engagements
until after the twenty-fifth of August.
This pleasant prospect will, however, be
brightened by a consideration of the fol
lowing statement, whic.h appeared in
the Times some fourteen years at;o. "It
appears that St. Swithln'a day wsb wet
iu 1841, and there were twenty-three
rainy days up to the twenty-fourth of
August: lsio, rainy days: ib-i, i
rainy days; 1853, 18 rainy day.s 1854,
IG rainy days; and in 1856, 14
rainy days. In 1842 and following
years, St. owiinin's nay was dry, anu
the result was: in itn, rainy daj's;
1843, 23 rainy days; 1844, 20 rainy days;
1846, 21 rainy days; 1847, 1" rainy days;
1848, 31 rainy days; 184y, 20 rainy days;
185'J, 17 rainy days; 1852, 19 rainy days;
1855, 18 rainy days; 1857, 14 rainy days;
185S, 14 rainv days; 1853, 13 rainy days;
and in 1850, 29 rainy days. These fig
ures show the superstition to be founded
on fallacy, as the average of twenty
years proves rain to have fallen upon
the largest number of days when St.
Swith'n's day was dry." St. Swithin's
day, by the way, is not July 15th, but
2 i, the former date being that of his
traneHtiou. It was on the feast of the
translation, however, that the great del
uge took place which has connected the
name of King Alfred's tutor with the
weather ever since. The supeistition is
very widespread. It has bieu noticed
in Archbishop Laud's diary. Pepys'
new ceilings were ruinpd by the lain on
the firteenth of July, 16G2, but he does
not attribute tho misfortune to the ma
lign influence of St. Swithin. A refuta
tion of the popular idea occurs in
"Hone's Every-day Book," from which
we learn that dry weather followed a
wet St. Swithin in 1807 and 1S0S. He
also points out what is of more import
ancethat the fifteenth of July, in the
old fctyle, corresponds with the twenty-
sixth in tno new. Tne relics of Ht.
Swithin were translated first in 971, and
afterward in 1091, and are now said to
rest beneath a plain stone near the east
end of the cathedral at Winchester.
